Since Katrina, Stevens has been in newspapers across the country where he was quoted in an Associated Press story as saying the Yakuza Mafia used a Russian-made electromagnetic generator to cause Hurricane Katrina in a bid to avenge the atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima. He was a guest on Coast to Coast, a late night radio show that conducts call-in discussions on everything from bizarre weather patterns to alien abductions. On Wednesday, Stevens was interviewed by Fox News firebrand Bill O'Reilly.
Woah. I don't even know where to begin. I'm feeling a little lost here. I love a good conspiracy theory. I like to share them, like jokes. Every telling, there is always critique, and usually someone comes up with a good idea to add to them.
The Yakuza Mafia using Russian-made weather manipulation equipment? That's unique. The Russian technology angle makes sense to me. The Yakuza angle sounds good too, but using Bin Laden as an actor seems more reasonable. This might simply be because I like the image of him sitting on his magic carpet floating in the sky and controlling the weather. Its more amusing. The Hiroshima motivation thing seems a little thick.. Of course, my idea is weakened by the fact that, to the best of our knowledge, Bin Laden does not have a magic carpet.
No matter which way you look at it, this conspiracy theory needs development. In this day and age any conspiracy theory has to involve the Bush family, and if at all possible, Skull and Bones. Every conspiracy theory needs a masonic tie-in. Its mandatory, and that's clean way to do it. The nature of this one does not require brining in the second coming of Christ, aliens, or the end of the world. This one is clearly geo-political in nature.
At several points recently when discussing the government's response to Katrina, I've joked that the intelligence agencies could not have prevented the hurricane, leaving them off the hook for once. Well, maybe I was wrong.
"There's a chess game going on in the sky," Stevens said. "It affects each and every one of us. It is the one common thread that binds us all together."
"The Soviets boasted of their geoengineering capabilities; these impressive accomplishments must be taken at face value simply because we are observing weather events that simply have never occurred before, never!" Stevens wrote on his Web site. "The evidence of these weapons at work found within the clouds overhead is simply unmistakable. These patterns and odd geometric shapes seen in our skies, each and every day, are clear and present evidence that our weather has been stolen from us, only to be used by those whose designs for humanity are rarely in alignment with that of the common man."
So maybe he is nuts. I think he should be supported in his research. Why not? I've been nuts before, and I've come up with some pretty good ideas when going nuts. I think his progress should be documented. It could be interesting. Entertaining at the very least. Who knows? He might just wind up saving the world.
All of you watching the news tracking Rita, just close your eyes, and picture Collin Powell presenting this guy's research in front of the UN Security Council. If there is nothing you can do, laughing in the face of disaster isn't that bad of an approach.
