Jones said he didn’t favor either of the two major presidential candidates, calling Romney a “globalist” and saying Obama is “the more extreme version of the New World Order puppet candidate.”
Is Jones serious in thinking the federal government may have created Hurricane Sandy? His website featured an article on Oct. 30 that claimed “the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been engaged in research to do just that for years.”
Meanwhile, eccentric amateur scientists congregating in small online communities continue to insist the HAARP program “created” the mega-storm. A contributor to one such group wrote Tuesday on Facebook that he had discovered a sophisticated mathematical pattern in Sandy’s shape, suggesting it was designed, not natural.
The same user also showed off a graphic that mapped high-level radio signals in the ionosphere over the East Coast of the United States, as measured by amateur weather stations. Their pattern roughly matched Sandy’s size, shape and position, implying that radio signals caused the hurricane.
But the two images, he admitted, were assembled a week apart.
“On the left image the October 22nd reading of the growing signals in the Northeast,” the Facebook member wrote. “The right image is the current [weather] satellite. That was seven days before Sandy hit and eight days before today. It does not get anymore clearer than that.”
“Those who deny the network deny a way to warn others. We can only do so much but if we use the network to warn and keep others informed we can stay alive.”
In a 2010 article for the newsletter of the nonprofit Skeptics Society — a group that focuses on debunking “fringe science, pseudoscience, and extraordinary claims” — software engineer David Naiditch explained why HAARP is “an attractive target for conspiracy theorists.”
“HAARP is a gigantic, high-energy, Pentagon-funded gizmo located in the remote Alaskan wilderness that plays around with the Earth’s ionosphere,” he wrote, “but whose purpose seems deeply mysterious to the scientifically uninformed.”
