Curious about Zika Virus.

"Brazil sends 200,000 soldiers to stop spread of Zika."
Will America deploy the same
style military , now that Zika
is here?
We all have been hearing about the poorly understood Zika virus outbreak across Brazil took a turn in the wrong direction this week. Local public health authorities announced that, in addition to severe birth defects, the infection may be linked to a paralytic condition called Guillain-BarrĂ© Syndrome, or GBS. Well the news about Zika keep's getting worse enough for the  (1)>>bizarre ( and pandemic like). It’s ironic then that a conspiracy theory about a real virus - the Zika epidemic currently affecting Brazil - is currently exhibiting just such break-out behavior. The first outing I can find came via an obscure post on Reddit on 25 January. The location should have rung warning bells: it was in a sub-Reddit category titled “conspiracies”, sandwiched between 9/11 truther rants, and was written anonymously under the giveaway pseudonym (1.2)>>“redditsucksatbanning”.  Science has known about the Zika virus since the 1940s, and as far as symptoms go, it has never caused shrunken head syndrome in babies before this year. What has changed? Each of the affected womem ALSO took the pertussis vaccine to "protect" their children. What I'm trying to say is, it's NOT the Zika virus that is causing the problems with the children, the heads of those children look like some form of a"mutation" that genetically alters growth ..In some African countries, this mosquito exists and has been endemic for years and years. No reported cases of Zika or microencephaly. Health officials have been talking about it this week. So perhaps these populations are immune to the virus or perhaps something else causes the condition, not the virus? I'm inclined to believe we aren't being told the full story of Zika (not a surprise) and there are other causes or factors at play that governments or health experts are trying to protect. Sound conspiracy-like? Maybe, but if I hadn't heard professional doctors come forward to say this mosquito has been living among us for decades. The first confirmed case of transmission of ZIKA infection in the Americas was reported from Easter Island, off the coast of Chile in June 2014. Around February 2015, states in the North East of Brazil began reporting a disease associated with a rash.Over 14,000 cases of rash-related illness were reported in Salvador, Brazil between Feb-June 2015. In May 2015, Brazil identified the infection as due to virus Zika and confirm autochthonous transmission (the spread of infection from one individual to another in the same area) in the states of Bahia and Rio Grande do Norte.
I am quoting a source here that adds to some speculation that the (2)>>mosquito born pandemic is something else :
Until now, it was thought the virus was only transmitted by mosquitoes, although there was some speculation it may be sexually-transmitted as well.‘Now that we know Zika virus can be transmitted through sex, this increases our awareness campaign in educating the public about protecting themselves and others,’ said Zachary Thompson, director of Dallas County Health and Human Services. (URL : http://www.conspiracyclub.co/2016/02/03/sexually-transmitted-case-of-zika-virus-reported-in-us/)
"THEY" are TRYING to SCARE the HELL out of US.... 
The detail of the sexual transmission drastically changes the nature of it being a mosquito infection to something other than a virus . Health officials in Dallas say two people there have been diagnosed with Zika virus, including one who was infected through sexual transmission, the first such case documented in the United States. The patient's infection was confirmed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CBS DFW reportsWait, so the Zika virus is an STD? I thought it was mosquito based? Ahhhh, yesssss, the latest scare virus for the North America media to flip out over when it’s nothing to even be slightly concerned about for anyone in a developed country. But, as always, there are a lot of people who’s jobs are dependent on people being paniced and scared over these things and so whenever someone like Zika or Ebola or H1N1 pop up, these fearmongers go into overdrive with their efforts and voila! Whole bunch of stories about a virus that doesn’t have a chance of infecting the modern world.And sexually transmitted? Ummm, if you have a virus and you have sex with someone, with all the fluid transfer and whatnot, odds are pretty good you’re going to get that virus too — whether it’s a cold or Zika or AIDS. Basic health 101, people.AS a new pathogen getting lots of attention from the mass media and the rest of the control system, and WE just  awakened to some globalist plans ? , we  may want to pay very close attention. The establishment mainstream media continue to parrot the same hysteria regarding the Zika virus – that it's causing birth defects – but there is so much information intentionally being left out. The mainstream media's false narrative. It isn’t quite the Ebola-style scare, but it brings with it a much more focused and sinister agenda to scare us , and it’s already underway in 2016. We have had the BIRD FLU , H1N1 and EBOLA over the last eight years . This new one first has to be ingrained in the public mind . As Zika becomes the newest health scare, health authorities are urging women to delay pregnancy. News reports are multiplying the scare tactics, warning people not to travel or procreate. Pictures of babies with shrunken heads and small brains are flashed across the screen as Zika virus is blamed for causing a record number of birth defects called microcephalyWant more hysteria? The Daily Mail indicates pregnant women are being warned not to travel to 22 countries in Latin America and Africa. Several Zika cases are being reported in Italy, the UK, and Spain.And of course the focus of this "Zika Virus" seems to be exclusively towards pregnant women and the falsehood that anyone exposed to the virus should not bother to get pregnant as well. U.S. lawmakers have begun to press the Obama administration for details of its response to Zika. At least 31 people in the country have been infected, all of them after travel to affected countries.I've been to these rodeos before:HIV , West Nile, Swine Flu ,SARS and Ebola. During the Ebola scare of 2014, which turned out to essentially be a (2)>>fake pandemic, For instance, people were treating a supposedly delay virus in a ridiculous way, e.g. by walking through ebola-infected water with sandals. The Government was clearly using crisis actors, just as they do with all the false flag events of recent years. At the time, almost all the MSM and even many in the alternative media were hyping the threat, knowingly or not. So let’s take a little side trip to Scam City and examine the science behind the Zika virus and the assertion that it is causing birth defects.Before a virus can be said to cause disease, a few procedures need to occur. First, the virus must be proved to exist. It has to be isolated from a human carrier as diseased tissue, and then that tissue has to be put under an electron microscope, where many, many (Zika) viruses can be seen. Second, tests have to be run on many suspected human cases, and these tests have to reveal very large amounts of Zika in the body. That’s your basic starter kit for deciding that a virus might be causing actual human disease. Investigators and researchers will ignore the fact that there is a very real health crisis in Brazil, and it has existed for a long time. The rampant use of toxic pesticides, grinding poverty, contaminated water, lack of basic sanitation, overcrowding, the takeover of farm land by major corporations, prior toxic vaccine campaigns—these are all factors that cause massive illness, suffering, and death in Brazil.If you had a few billion bucks and straight-line control of fawning media, you could concoct the most ridiculous and absurd story of fear anyone ever heard of, and the networks would blast it out as absolute fact. And people all over the world would believe it and tremble.



NOTES AND COMMENTS: 
(1)>>bizarre ( and pandemic like). It alleged that the UK-based small company Oxitec, which began releasing genetically engineered male-sterile mosquitoes in 2011 in north-eastern Brazil in order to combat dengue disease, may have inadvertently caused the Zika outbreak. Oxitec’s approach involves releasing non-biting males - which have been genetically engineered to carry a gene that is lethal to their offspring - to mate with wild females. If there is a patent on the Zika virus then it is not a natural virus but means it has been made or altered by man.. much like genetically modified food with Monsanto holding patents on each one. One might assume then if the virus is further altered, then there could be ownership changes.. such as with a reported mutation that has occurred between the French Polynesia outbreak and this outbreak in Brazil of Zika. (2)>>mosquito.  For now, scientists believe that Zika is mainly carried by a specific type of mosquito called Aedes aegypti, which spreads the disease through bites.Aedes mosquitoes bite during the day and are incredibly well adapted to thrive alongside humans. They can breed and rest in small pools of water and moist environments around people's homes and apartments. (You can see examples of the mosquito's main aquatic habitats here, ranging from rain-filled cavities in trees to outdoor pots and animal drinking pans.)(1.2)>>“redditsucksatbanning”. Here is Oxitec back in 2015 proudly announcing that their GM mosquito has decimated the local mosquito population in a field trial:http://www.oxitec.com/press-release-oxitec-mosquito-works-to-control-aedes-aegypti-indengue-hotspo/Releases of the genetically engineered Oxitec mosquito, commonly known as ‘Friendly Aedes aegypti’, reduced the dengue mosquito population in an area of Juazeiro, Brazil by 95%, well below the modelled threshold for epidemic disease transmission. (2)>>fake pandemic. According to this article the Brazilian government has been vaccinating tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of pregnant women in its country during the past year. A large portion of these pregnancies are occurring in Brazil’s northeastern region, notably in the state of Pernambuco—the country’s fastest growing population center. ( https://idsent.wordpress.com/2016/01/24/tdap-vaccinations-for-all-pregnant-women-in-brazil-mandated-in-late-2014/ ) The Zika virus scare has the finger prints of big pharma and conventional medicine all over it. And how about this tiny fact that has not been reported in the mainstream media: The Rockefeller Foundation owns the patent on the virus! Of significance, the Zika virus is a commodity which can be purchased online from the ATCC-LGC for 599 Euros with royalties accruing to the Rockefeller Foundation.

IOWA CAUCUS @ Crossroads of History , allegory .

America is at the crossroads of history , IF  this election when & it's over is not going to leave any one with a savory smile . WHO you get in the WHITE HOUSE is whom you deserve . We all  had ample time to CHANGE everything way back in 2012 . We would probably would have not have had Trump , Mrs. Clinton , Sanders , Rubio and Cruz . The Man that should had been elected should have been (1)>>Mitt Romney .That's just one finding in a brutal CNN poll, released a few years ago, which shows Romney topping Obama in a re-election rematch by a whopping nine-point margin, 53 percent to 44 percent. That's an even larger spread than CNN found in November 2014 , when a survey had Romney winning a redo 49 percent to 45 percent. WHY I am I say this ??? First we do
have a real quagmire in our political system, ****yes all the candidates SUCK . I came to that conclusion that the re-election of Mr. Obama was catastrophic to the American system . Obama had enough mojo (voodoo) to cast a hex on the Republicans who for eight years , though bitterly against Obama , soon turned on each other . The GOP , ultra-right so called  "tea par - tiers" soon lost all credibility with TRUE Reagan CONSERVATIVES. Now the GOP has , though the (1.2)>>IOWA CAUCUS debacle has made Cruz the winner , they've just kicked their can in the political gutter . Their poster boy obvious first choice in the populist vote is TRUMP.  That has scared the GOP of not embracing Trump out of fear of him , that he's bit too radical , less rational choice.Cruz is no less a Trump , he is just as radical for the radicals who are has hard line (1.3)>>"PatBuchanan  , but no sure winner Cruz is not going to make it .MEANWHILE we look at the Democratic Party , they are in no worse shape than the GOP , just look at the candidates it's so narrow and one sided , even though Bernie Sanders is there as a standby, it's centered on the election
of   (2)>>Mrs. Clinton . Obama's voodoo also damaged the Democrats , they have no one else but Mrs. Clinton , Between the serially unpopular, cost-raising, care stealing Affordable Care Act that bears his name, a stagnant economy, and a deteriorating Middle East, there's not much for the Democratic leader to hang his hat on. And nationwide, it's been devastating for DemocratsSince Obama was first elected, Democrats have lost at least 14 Senate seats. (Louisiana is another likely loss.) The party has lost more than 70 seats in the House, and will field its smallest caucus in the next Congress since before FDR. Only 18 states have Democrat governors, compared to 29 states when Obama took office. Around 1,000 state legislative seats have shifted to the Republicans. The GOP will control 68 of the nation’s 99 state legislative chambers, again the largest disparity since before FDR. HONESTLY I don't how Mrs. Clinton is going to run this country in 2017? There is so much GOP opposition it would have been the wiser to have elected TRUMP.The Democrat party has long been a disgrace, but even that is gone now. Despite the media, both mainstream and alternative, predictions of the demise of the Republican Party (IMO, fueled by
their hatred of Donald Trump), the Democratic Party is losing its stranglehold on working Americans. Their base is shrinking; while, in general, this group would rather vote Democrat, their belief that the Republicans have done less damage, has reached their consciousness via their pocketbooks, has made 
them open to Republican candidates. If the Democrats want to stop this hemorrhage, they have to nix Hillary. Although Obama has done a lot of damage, most Americans, still like him, even if they think he was a horrible President. Clinton is not perceived that way.  
The presidential selection process is out of whack — as, to be sure, are many things relating to politics and government, both at the national and the state level. That the 2012  presidential campaign should have gone toward Romney is all to true now,   has gone on throughout 2016 and has another year to run, is one vital piece of the evidence. You don't need this long to pick a president. Unless, the picking of the president has become somehow the most important thing Americans do: more important than forming families, looking for work, buying homes, getting through school and college and/or saving for retirement. Americans have let it slide down hill, Politics has gotten so divisive and difficult to understand that I fear it discourages potential leaders from considering public office. The hangers-on will always be with us as professional politicos, but an emerging new class of leaders will be held in abeyance by lack of money, support or the courage of conviction to invest what it takes to succeed in the cesspool of politics.  Trump # 2. Donald Trump was surprisingly humble after his second place finish in Iowa. “We finished second,” he told supporters minutes after Cruz was declared the winner, “and I want to tell you something: I’m just honored. I’m really honored. And I want to congratulate Ted, and I want to congratulate all of the incredible candidates, including Mike Huckabee, who has become a really good friend of mine.”NO CRUZ CONTROL. For instance,
Cruz’s team sent out mailers over the weekend, which, according to Politico, “showed the name of the person receiving the mail at the top and then gave them a grade on an A to F scale. Below, it showed their neighbors and their voting scores. It urged them to caucus next week and warned, ‘A follow-up notice may be issued following Monday’s caucuses.’” The mailers might not have violated any laws, but Iowa’s Republican secretary of state remarked that they weren’t “in keeping with the spirit of the Iowa Caucuses.”
Cruz is also taking heat for putting out a release during the caucuses stating that (3)>>Ben Carson was skipping New Hampshire and retreating to Florida, implying that Carson was suspending his campaign. Although Cruz later apologized, the damage was already done. Carson’s campaign died weeks ago, but he still has a lot of support in Iowa. If Cruz’s release deterred even a few Carson supporters, it made a difference. Carson’s senior communications strategist, Jason Osborne, condemned the Cruz campaign, saying “it calls into question the results.” Somewhere along the way, the story got twisted. Cruz campaign aides alerted supporters in Iowa that Carson might be a goner. Before long there were allegations that the Cruz campaign had suppressed Carson's vote total by spreading rumors that Carson was giving up on the race.Shortly after the CNN report came out, Carson's campaign downplayed the significance, saying the candidate needed a fresh set of clothes. Meanwhile, political analysts generally agreed with Tapper and Bash's assessment that it was unusual for a presidential candidate to not rush to New Hampshire. Virtually all of Carson's rivals hurried to New Hampshire after the caucuses. T
ed  Cruz has lied his way to the top.  Unfortunately the right-wing Tea Party wack jobs in Iowa fawned all over him.  Cruz will be lucky to hold on to his Senate seat next time. As the World situation gets worse and worse, America is entering another election cycle ( do they ever leave it?). This go around we have two Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders leading their pack. The Republicans have Donald Trump, Ben Carson , Mark Rubio and a slew of others still vying to be the GOP candidate. Both parties are completely bereft to the point that they seemingly trade the White House between themselves every 8 years. It's easier for the parties to equally share in the preplanned misery they have in store for the masses as neither ever fulfill their campaign promises. America has been a duopoly now undermined by homemade political dynasties that offer nothing but spokesmen who are little more than fake, hollow leaders.


NOTES AND COMMENTS:
****yes all the candidates SUCK . KORN front man Jonathan Davis got to talking about politics and the 2016 race.“They all suck. The f**king candidates, they all suck. Why can’t there be anybody good?,” said Davis. “I just want the America I had as a kid growing up, and it’s not that no more.”“I like Rand Paul, but that’s never gonna happen.”Davis also had a choice in the last election, “Ron Paul should have been president, but that would have never happened.”“I believe presidents are chosen, not elected. Why is [every] president f**king related? You tell me that. No little guy is gonna make it,” he said.It’s all so corrupt.”(1)>>Mitt Romney .But what if Mitt Romney had won in 2012? America would now be nearly 200 days into his first term in the White House. It is worth pondering how different things might look. Yet interviews with former aides, along with recently-disclosed internal documents, reveal the former Bay State governor to be more interesting, even radical. During his first 200 days in office, he planned a “continual stream of rapid changes” to the way that America taxes and spends, cares for its sick and needy and regulates business. Aides drew comparisons, as incoming administrations often do, to the frenetic activity of Franklin Roosevelt’s early months in office, during which he signed 15 big bills.Michael Leavitt, the former Utah governor who chaired Mr Romney’s transition team, describes plans to deliver a “jolt of confidence” by showing seriousness in a few big areas. He would simplify America’s spaghetti-spill of a tax code. He would grapple with the deficit; expand domestic energy production; and reduce the role of government in health care by hollowing out “Obamacare” reforms. Success was to be measured by bosses releasing cash they were hoarding when Mr Obama was president, and rushing to join a Romney-led American revival. Trump # 2. Still stinging from his first defeat as a presidential candidate, Donald Trump rolled into New Hampshire on Thursday with a new mantra: There is no such thing as too much campaigning.He also broke from his usual playbook by taking questions from the audience at the first of many events planned for Thursday.  (3)>>Ben Carson . Ben Carson was incensed as the results of Monday night’s Iowa caucuses rolled in, accusing the winner of spreading falsehoods about him at caucus sites.Carson’s team claimed that Ted Cruz’s campaign deliberately sent emails to supporters to spread false rumors at caucus sites that Carson had dropped out, so his supporters would caucus for other candidates. And after initially denying any wrongdoing late Monday, Cruz apologized Tuesdayand called it a “mistake.”“That is really quite a dirty trick,” Carson told reporters Monday evening. “That’s the very kind of thing that irritated me enough to get into this quagmire.”(1.2)>>IOWA CAUCUS . As a result of the coin toss, Clinton was awarded an additional delegate, meaning she took five of the precinct’s eight, while Sanders received three. One thing is clear after Monday night's Iowa caucuses: there's a long, volatile election season ahead before two deeply fractured parties can unite behind a nominee. Republican Ted Cruz bested Donald Trump, raising questions about the billionaire's reliance on his celebrity instead of traditional political organization. And Marco Rubio's stronger-than-expected showing could mark him as the establishment's best hope against a grassroots revolt in next week's New Hampshire primary and beyond. (2)>>Mrs. Clinton .The Liberal Media mantra of the 1992 presidential election was that it was time for a “young” American president from a “new generation”, not incumbent Republican president George HW Bush of the World War II generation (born in 1924). And so Bill Clinton was elected that year as the first president from the so-called Baby Boom generation (born in 1946).Then in 2008 we were supposed to vote for Obama because he would be “the first black president” even though Obama is half-white. And now we are supposed to elect Hillary Clinton president in 2016 because she would be “the first woman president”. (1.3)>>"PatBuchanan . On the NEIL CAVUTO show Buchanan said this about Ted Cruz : 
PAT BUCHANAN: Well, I think you're right. I think what Ted Cruz was trying to do is what Jean Kirkpatrick did at the 1984 convention of the Republicans where she referred to San Francisco Democrats a number of times and people laughed and cheered, but you're right, Neil. When folks think of New York now, and what is the image? A lot of us think of the image as firemen running into a burning building and climbing up stairs to rescue people when there's a good probability those buildings are going to collapse on top of them, which is what happened. So, I think that it was a tin eared comment by Senator Cruz and I think he's going to pay a place for it and was Donald Trump's best moment in the debate and it's one reasons that a number of people say it was his best debate and he won it.

Thoughts about Planet "9".

What’s a planet, exactly?  Astronomers claim to have found “good evidence” of a (***)>>mysterious ninth planet in the far reaches of the outer Solar System,  which they believe has for decades escaped ...Today, two scientists announced evidence that a body nearly the size of Neptune—but as yet unseen—orbits the sun every 15,000 years. During the solar system’s infancy 4.5 billion years ago, they say, the giant planet was knocked out of the planet-forming region near the sun. Slowed down by gas, the planet settled into a distant elliptical orbit, where it still lurks today The claim is the strongest yet in the centuries-long search for a “Planet X” beyond Neptune. The quest has been plagued by far-fetched claims and even outright quackery. California Institute of Technology (Caltech) astronomer Michael Brown and planetary scientist Konstantin Batygin released a report on (1)>>The Astronomical Journal on Jan. 20 saying that they may have found evidence that supports the possibility of another planet in our solar system. The researches came to this conclusion after observing a cluster of Kuiper Belt objects (KBOs) that seem to be following a certain orbit and the only explanation is that they are orbiting a distant exoplanet. "We have found evidence that there’s a giant planet in the outer solar system," astronomer and "Pluto Killer" Mike
Brown told Popular Science. "By 'giant' we mean the size of Neptune, and when we say 'outer solar system' we mean 10 to 20 times farther away than Pluto."Since 2003, Brown and other astronomers have discovered six new dwarf planets orbiting on the fringe of the (2)>>Kuiper Belt. They all appear to follow a similar orbital pattern, albeit a really strange one. Well, for one thing, it’s not definitively a planet just yet. For now, (3)>>Planet 9 is a bunch of clues that all seem – to the eyes of the researchers following it – to point in the direction of a previously-unknown planet. Scientists are extrapolating a possible conclusion from odd data they have collected. Which is definitely not the same thing as coming to a firm conclusion.Even if Batygin and Brown can convince other astronomers that Planet X exists, they face another challenge: explaining how it ended up so far from the sun. At such distances, the proto planetary disk of dust and gas was likely to have been too thin to fuel planet growth. And even if Planet X did get a foothold as a planetesimal, it would have moved too slowly in its vast, lazy orbit to hoover up enough material to become a giant Instead, Batygin and Brown propose that Planet X formed much closer to the sun, alongside Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Computer models have shown that the early solar system was a tumultuous billiards table, with dozens or even hundreds of planetary building blocks the size of Earth bouncing around. Another embryonic giant planet could easily have formed there, only to be booted outward by a gravitational kick from another gas giant. How Planet 9 found itself in so remote a place is unclear. It’s unlikely that it formed in situ, essentially coalescing out of the primordial cloud of dust and gas that formed the rest of the solar system, since there probably would not have been enough raw material to form so big a world out that far. Rather, the new planet might have accreted closer in like the other planets, and then been ejected by their gravitational forces. If this planet is found, this would force a reincarnation of our current solar system model which has been around since 2006, after Pluto was officially named a dwarf planet.Professor Sir Martin Rees told The Telegraph that the planet will be detected by their telescopes if it exists, so they just have to wait until their instruments do the job.Mike Brown, the astronomer who discovered this evidence, said that what they found is so big that the conclusion is obvious. The 9 planet’s gravity dominates its surroundings in the solar system, unlike the smaller ones. This is one of the key tests to classify a planet. So while Planet 9 is by no means the only answer to the question of the Kuiper Belt’s odd orbital mystery, it is far from being an impossibility. But until we get a telescope trained in that direction – exactly in that direction – we won’t know for sure. Even then, there won’t be a lot of light from the far-distant sun, so spotting it will be tricky.

Our Sun's MYSTERIOUS COMPANION STAR.

Why do scientists think something could be hidden beyond the edge of our solar system?What if I told you that our sun was part of a binary relationship to a shadowy, hidden star theorists have referred to for 20 to 30 years as Planet X or Zechariah Sitchin’s Nibiru?  There was also recently discovered a dwarf planet, known as  (4)>>Sedna, that has a very unusual, and highly elliptical, orbit. At its farthest point it is nearly 1000 times further away from the Sun than the Earth is from the Sun. Scientists are baffled by its very existence, claiming that it could not possibly remain in its current orbit unless it is being influenced by another, massive object. So it would seem that even though no companion has yet been confirmed, it would seem likely given the observational data we have thus far.  At the time of Sedna's discovery in 2003, it was the farthest body ever seen in our planetary club. Its peculiar path—it never ventures near the giant planets—suggested an equally peculiar history. How did it get there? The Binary Research Institute (BRI) has found that orbital characteristics of the recently discovered planetoid, "Sedna", demonstrate the possibility that our sun might be part of a binary star system. A binary star system consists of two stars gravitationally bound orbiting a common center of mass. That if  this object actually exists and that NASA has been analyzing it now for over 30 years appears to be close to certain. In official circles the object has been called a ?hypothetical? gas giant living in the far reaches of the Oort cloud, which astrophysicists and NASA callTyche, but NASA now claims in a more recent infrared satellite search for it they couldn’t find it so therefore it must not exist. Other names being used run the range of Planet X, (4.1)>>The sun may have snatched Sedna away from another star, new computer simulations show. Our solar system is surrounded by a vast collection of icy bodies called the (5)>>Oort Cloud. If our Sun were part of a binary system in which two gravitationally-bound stars orbit a common center of mass, this interaction could disturb the Oort Cloud on a periodic basis, sending comets whizzing towards us.John Matese, Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, suspects Nemesis exists for another reason. The comets in the inner solar system seem to mostly come from the same region of the Oort Cloud, and Matese thinks the gravitational influence of a solar companion is disrupting that part of the cloud, scattering comets in its wake. His calculations suggest Nemesis is between 3 to 5 times the mass of Jupiter, rather than the 13 Jupiter masses or greater that some scientists think is a necessary quality of a brown dwarf. Even at this smaller mass, however, many astronomers would still classify it as a low mass star rather than a planet, since the circumstances of birth for stars and planets differ.The Oort Cloud is thought to extend about 1 light year from the Sun. Matese estimates Nemesis is 25,000 AU away (or about one-third of a light year). The next-closest known star to the Sun is Proxima Centauri, located 4.2 light years away. The case for the companion star is perhaps solid enough to score a victory in a court of law, but in the court of science, the ultimate proof will be in the finding it . The probability of a companion star also gains support by the fact that more than 50% of stars in a galaxy are in a binary system, Of course there is no guarantee on these speculations, above all because we do not know all the astronomical data with enough thoroughness  and everything is based on clues come out in the course of the search for Planet X and Nemesis (a Dark Star, perhaps a brown dwarf) carried out by NASA, by U.S Naval Observatory and by other scientific institutions involved in the last century. The same existence of Nibiru beyond Neptune is not sure and accepted by modern Astronomy yet.Much of the Physics of the theory that the our Sun has a Unseen binary companion has been studied by scientists , not giving the probability that a low mass star orbits the sun at a vast distance no farther than 1 light year in an elongated orbit has not yet been detected visually . The "evidence" for this object is based on the gravitational effects it has on objects , so far long period comets with long elongated orbits , some of the recently discovered dwarf planets provided us with a clue that something is really out there.

NOTES AND COMMENTS:
 (***)>>mysterious ninth planet .Others, like planetary scientist Dave Jewitt, who discovered the Kuiper belt, are more cautious. The 0.007% chance that the clustering of the six objects is coincidental gives the planet claim a statistical significance of 3.8 sigma—beyond the 3-sigma threshold typically required to be taken seriously, but short of the 5 sigma that is sometimes used in fields like particle physics. That worries Jewitt, who has seen plenty of 3-sigma results disappear before. By reducing the dozen objects examined by Sheppard and Trujillo to six for their analysis, Batygin and Brown weakened their claim, he says. “I worry that the finding of a single new object that is not in the group would destroy the whole edifice,” says Jewitt, who is at UC Los Angeles. “It’s a game of sticks with only six sticks.”(1)>>The Astronomical Journal.
The far reaches of the Solar System ,
new discovered "dwarf planets" have
mysterious orbits that
hide the presence of large
planet far beyond Pluto.
 
The discovery of the world that Brown and Batygin refer to in The Astronomical Journal simply as “Planet 9” began in 2003, with the discovery of a far more modest object named Sedna. A dwarf planet even smaller than Pluto, Sedna is a Kuiper Belt object (KBO), like Pluto one of a vast band of icy, rocky objects that surround the solar system beyond the orbit of Neptune. Brown was part of the team that found Sedna too, and if anything made the new world remarkable, it was its extreme distance from the sun—one that has it completing a single orbit in 11,400 years, compared to Pluto’s 248. There is more to the Planet Nine story:  “A predicted consequence of Planet Nine is that a second set of confined objects should also exist. These objects are forced into positions at right angles to Planet Nine and into orbits that are perpendicular to the plane of the solar system. Five known objects  fit this prediction precisely.” (2)>>Kuiper Belt. Another curious feature of the distant scattered disk is the lack of objects with perihelion distance in the range q = 50–70 AU. It is yet unclear if this property of the observational sample can be accounted for by invoking a distant eccentric perturber such as the one discussed herein. but it's looking likelier that there is an undiscovered planet orbiting beyond the Kuiper belt. If it's there, it's big, far, and slow. It would be roughly 10 times the mass of Earth (or about half the mass of Neptune), likely never gets closer to the Sun than about 100 200 AU, and takes more than 10,000 years to orbit the Sun.(3)>>Planet 9 is a bunch of clues that all seem. The evidence for 'Planet X' - the mysterious hypothesized planet on the edge of our solar system - has taken a new turn thanks to the mathematics of a noted astronomer.Rodney Gomes, an astronomer at the National Observatory of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, says the irregular orbits of small icy bodies beyond Neptune imply that a planet four times the size of Earth is swirling around our sun in the fringes of the solar system.Planet X - perhaps mis-named now that Pluto has been demoted to a dwarf planet - has been widely hypothesized for decade, but has never been proven.Gomes measured the orbits of 92 Kuiper belt objects - small bodies and dwarf planets - and said that six objects appeared to be tugged off-course compared to their expected orbits. (4)>>Sedna. The trans-Neptunian object Sedna has an extra-long and unusual elliptical orbit around the Sun,ranging between 76 and 975 AU. Sedna's orbit is estimated to last between 10.5 and 12 thousand years. Its discoverer, Michael Brown of Caltech, noted in a Discover magazine article that Sedna's location seemed to defy reasoning: "Sedna shouldn't be there", Brown said. "There's no way to put Sedna where it is. It never comes close enough to be affected by the Sun, but it never goes far enough away from the Sun to be affected by other stars."---Brown therefore postulated that a massive unseen object may be responsible for Sedna's anomalous orbit.  (4.1)>>The sun may have snatched . In a paper published in Astrophysical Journal Letters, lead author Eric Mamajek from the University of Rochester and his collaborators analysed the velocity and trajectory of a low-mass star system nicknamed “Scholz’s Star.”The star’s trajectory suggests that 70,000 years ago it passed roughly 52,000 astronomical units away (or about 0.8 light-years, which equals 8 trillion kilometres, or 5 trillion miles). This is astronomically close; our closest neighbour star Proxima Centauri is 4.2 light-years distant. In fact, the astronomers explain in the paper that they are 98% certain that it went through what is known as the “outer Oort Cloud” — a region at the edge of the Solar System filled with trillions of comets a mile or more across that are thought to give rise to long-period comets orbiting the Sun after their orbits are perturbed. While the close flyby of Scholz’s Star likely had little impact on the Oort Cloud, Mamajek points out that “other dynamically important Oort Cloud perturbers may be lurking among nearby stars.” The recently launched European Space Agency Gaia satellite is expected to map out the distances and measure the velocities of a billion stars. With the Gaia data, astronomers will be able to tell which other stars may have had a close encounter with us in the past or will in the distant future. (5)>>Oort Cloud. The Oort Cloud is a theoretical spherical cloud of predominantly icy planetesimals that is believed to surround the Sun at a distance of up to around 100,000 AU (2 ly). This places it in interstellar space, beyond the Sun’s Heliosphere where it defines the cosmological boundary between the Solar System and the region of the Sun’s gravitational dominance.  The Oort Cloud is an extended shell of icy objects that exist in the outermost reaches of the solar system. It is named after astronomer JanOort, who first theorized its existence. The Oort Cloud is roughly spherical, and is the origin of most of the long-period comets that have been observed. Like the Kuiper Belt and the Scattered Disc, the Oort Cloud is a reservoirs of trans-Neptunian objects, though it is over a thousands times more distant from our Sun as these other two.

Let's talk about Bernie Sanders.........

(**)>>Bernie Sanders obvious wanna be for the Presidency . I have looked at some of his "ideas", many of them are really good  . My own thoughts would be . If there was a slightest chance I'd for vote Barnie . I know I am getting those "chuckles" in the background , but it seems to me that he is more closer to what the public wants for a President . If you want to get out of poverty , you want to fix the system , you have to vote for him. I'm not into endorsing him , but it beats the nonsense of Hillary Clinton. He's a  (1)>>REAL SOCIALIST , unlike Obama who is a crony  capitalist , who "did not spread the wealth ....."  but raised your taxes . Barnie might just raise your taxes as well . Barnie Sanders has already altered the course of the 2016 campaign. His resonance with the Democratic Party's activist base has forced Clinton to tack left, repeatedly. But don't mistake this as Sanders' endgame. Senator Sanders accomplishments in fundraising, organization and support tell me he deserves far more and far better coverage by all media and especially the New York Times. Sanders has been around for a long time in political activism ,  Sanders also participated in the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.In addition to his civil rights activism during the 1960s and 1970s, Sanders was active in several peace and antiwar movements. He was a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Student Peace Union while attending the University of Chicago. Sanders applied for conscientious objector status during the Vietnam War; his application was eventually turned down, by which point he was too old to be drafted. Although he opposed the war, Sanders never placed any blame on those who fought and has been a strong supporter of veterans' benefits.Sanders has always been an easier fit in Vermont than in Washington. Being a Socialist in the seat of two-party orthodoxy will do that. While he has generally championed liberal Democratic positions over the years — and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee endorsed his Senate campaign — Sanders has strenuously resisted calling himself a Democrat. And he has clung to a mantle — socialism — that brings considerable stigma, in large part for its association with authoritarian communist regimes (which Sanders is quick to disavow). Mr. Sanders is seen greeting voters on the campaign trail, first in small groups, then in gymnasiums, and finally at the huge rallies that became his hallmark. His wife is shown twice. At least 10 American flags can be spotted in different settings. And there are probably more Bernie Sanders smiles in evidence than many voters have ever seen. Despite a lack of name recognition, Sanders was the first candidate to reach a  million online donations in late September, in addition to catching up to the Clinton fundraising juggernaut. According to Think Progress, "Bernie Sanders is raising a lot of money from individual donors for his presidential bid, and he's doing it even faster than President Obama did during both of his campaigns."In September, Bernie Sanders was 7 points behind Hillary Clinton nationally, with momentum on his side and polls reflecting a genuine challenge to the former Secretary of State. Gone were the apathetic talking points about Clinton's inevitability, especially since Sanders had surpassed Clinton in both Iowa and New Hampshire. The media, and the Democratic political establishment, had no choice but to accept a genuine challenge from Bernie Sanders. Nothing exemplifies the difference between Clinton and Sanders more than the speech given by Representative Bernie Sanders in 2002.  (2)>>Opposing the Iraq War, Sanders foreshadowed the dire consequences of removing Saddam and engaging in a counterinsurgency war without an exit strategy. In terms of U.S. history, Bernie Sanders was unfortunately right about the Iraq War. From 2003-2010, there were 1003 suicide bombings in Iraq. MIT estimates that between 3.5 and 5 million refugees have been displaced because of the war. Recent studies have concluded that because of the civil war between Shia and Sunni, internal upheavals resulting from the American-led invasion, and other factors, over 500,000 Iraqis have been killed because of the war.Bernie Sanders recently won the Congressional Award from the Veterans of Foreign Wars, in part because he has always worked to protect American soldiers and veterans. In his opposition speech to Congress, Sanders states clearly in his first reason to oppose the invasion that, "I have not heard any estimates of how many young American men and women might die in such a war.
Bernie Sanders knows what's wrong.
Barnie Sanders knows exactly what is wrong with our economy, the  poverty inducing system  . Last April he gave out some points that hit the reality with me  , (3)>>why America is going the wrong way . This is from the Article "For A Political Revolution" :
This is what a rigged economic system looks like. At a time when millions of American workers have seen declines in their incomes and are working longer hours for lower wages, the wealth of the billionaire class is soaring in a way that few can imagine. If you can believe it, between 2013 and 2015, the 14 wealthiest individuals in the country saw their net worth increase by over $157 billion. Children go hungry, veterans sleep out on the streets, senior citizens cannot afford their prescription drugs -- and 14 individuals saw a $157-billion increase in their wealth over a two-year period.
 (4)>>Bernie's Heathcare Plan.

Bernie Sanders deserves credit for one-upping Barack Obama.  The President claimed to give everyone affordable coverage and save families $2,500.  Sanders says he’ll give everyone unlimited access to every provider in the country and all conceivable health services that are provided now or will be invented in the future — saving middle-class families $5,807.  Don’t expect to spend that money any time soon.This is all the more unbelievable because the Sanders plans appears to fling open the doors to the Treasury.  “Medicare for All” is far more generous than Medicare or private health plans.  It would eliminate all cost-sharing requirements, making all services free to the patient.  With no out-of-pocket costs, patients will no longer question the value of an additional test or office visit, which would bend the cost curve the wrong way.  Sanders would also cover all of Medicare’s benefits plus vision, hearing, and dental care, as well as long-term and palliative care.  If his plan is really as generous as claimed, health spending would skyrocket.The truth is that if you want to save a trillion dollars a year in health-care spending, you can’t do it solely by cutting administrative costs and drug prices. You have to be willing to spend far less on medical procedures and services, and to be far more rigorous about expenditures for new medical technology. That would probably mean a drop in income for some doctors, particularly high-priced specialists, as well as for many hospitals. Providers would also have to relinquish a great deal of control over their facilities and equipment.It’s unclear whether Sanders would eliminate deductibles and co-pays. These costs currently exist under Medicare, and his 2013 bill makes no mention of changing the system. But the breakdown from his campaign lists both as $0. (See website : http://www.healthcare-now.org/index.php?s=Bernie+Sanders+S.+1782 ) As far as I can tell, Sanders’ plan has not yet been analyzed by independent think tanks or academics. So we ran back-of-the-envelope estimates for revenue from Sanders’ health care taxes using 2013 tax return data from the Internal Revenue Service. Skeptics pummeled Bernie Sanders this week for proposing sweeping policies that defy political realities, but almost nothing compares to his approach on immigration.Some 9 million undocumented immigrants would gain health care under the Democratic presidential candidate’s single-payer plan, senior policy adviser for the Sanders campaign Warren Gunnels said. But before that could happen, Sanders must first nearly double the number of immigrants given executive relief from deportation. Then he would pass comprehensive immigration reform. By the time Sanders would implement his “Medicare for All” plan, Gunnels said, millions of immigrants would already be on a pathway to citizenship. Hitting the campaign trail on her mother’s behalf, Chelsea Clinton attacked Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders’ universal health care plan."Sen. Sanders wants to dismantle Obamacare, dismantle the CHIP program, dismantle Medicare, and dismantle private insurance," Clinton said in New Hampshire Jan. 12. "I don't want to empower Republican governors to take away Medicaid, to take away health insurance for low-income and middle-income working Americans. And I think very much that's what Sen. Sanders' plan would do." The Sanders campaign and his supporters swiftly called Clinton’s statements inaccurate, so we decided to look into them ourselves — in particular, her claim that Sanders’ plan would "empower" governors "to take away health insurance for low-income and middle-income working Americans."Given that Sanders’ proposed plan specifically calls health insurance an entitlement for all, we found that this is a mischaracterization at best.

CAN HE WIN?

Lets face the facts , Bernie Sanders leads Hillary Clinton with a 8 point lead , he is popular as a alternative to the regular Democratic fanfare . I guess if he ran as a Independent , he'd be even more popular . His chances in the The  (5)>>Iowa Caucuses will be held on February 1, 2016. seem vary big .In 2016, Bernie represents the activists and Hillary the establishment . In the January 17th debate, Sanders pounded on this theme: "we have a corrupt campaign finance system where millionaires and billionaires are spending extraordinary amounts of money to buy elections." When each candidate was asked what she or he would do to bring the country together, Bernie replied, "The real issue is that Congress is owned by big money and refuses to do what the American people want them to do." Pew’s latest poll about attitudes toward government underscores the disgust: 74% of voters said most elected officials put their own interests ahead of the country’s. Just 19% of voters said “government is run for the benefit of all” vs. 76% who said it’s for “a few big interests.” They see politicians as the riggers of the system, not the unriggers who can solve it. They blame Washington for creating the loopholes, not the “special interests” for taking advantage of them. As the country begins to decide how it feels about the idea of socialism — thanks to Bernie Sanders's ascendant Democratic primary campaign — it's worth noting here that it's a word that many Democratic caucus-goers have clearly embraced. And, in fact, many even call themselves "socialists."Iowa is a swing state. But when it comes to its first-in-the-nation caucuses, its conservatives tend to be quite conservative, and its liberals tend to be quite liberal.Vote with your conviction of the best president for the country, do not try to jump on the bandwagon who has a chance to win. Bernie will definitely can be a  blessing for this country.


NOTES AND COMMENTS:
(**)>>Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006 after serving 16 years in the House of Representatives. He is the longest serving independent member of Congress in American history. Born in Brooklyn, Bernie was the younger of two sons in a modest-income family. After graduation from the University of Chicago in 1964, he moved to the Green Mountain State. Early in his career, Sanders was director of the American People’s Historical Society. Elected Mayor of Burlington by 12 votes in 1981, he served four terms. Before his 1990 election as Vermont’s at-large member in Congress, Sanders lectured at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and at Hamilton College in upstate New York(1)>>REAL SOCIALIST .In a similar manner, libertarians sometimes accuse National Socialism of being similar to, or a form of, communism. This is due to a misunderstanding of the word “socialism” as used by National Socialists. In the minds of many, “socialism” today refers to a society where all of the means of production are owned collectively (in reality, by the state). This is the Marxist goal: the abolishment of private property. It is not, however, a goal of National Socialism. (2)>>Opposing the Iraq . The costs of the war in Iraq, which Hillary Clinton voted for, are unfathomable. Over $2 trillion, including benefits owed US servicemen, and estimates as high as 1,000,000 deaths, including US servicemen. All for a war that even Bush officials now admit was based on a lie, i.e., that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Bernie Sanders, like 70% of Americans, opposed that war. The difference between the two candidates is night and day. Hillary's top four funders are Wall Street corporations, whereas Bernie's supporters are the American people. (3)>>why America is going the wrong way . YES he is right . There is something wrong. Politicians on both sides of the two party system have always known what is the root cause of income inequality . It's not just the wage gap as the cause , but it appears the American system has let the Big Neo - con cooperations like the banks devolve the American dream . If this trend continues we will have a nation of poor that will not be able to affording living with a decent wage . Say 30 years from now a person who today has a salary of 100,000 a year would not be able to afford living in the year 2030s  , since his wages would have to catch up , exceed 1 million a year just survive in the year 2030.  if you count the current and past levels of inflation , comparing salaries since the 1960s . The trend is going to further income inequality . So raising the minimum wage to 15 dollars now will not be any good to any one  living in the year 2030.(4)>>Bernie's Heathcare Plan. Bernie's plan will cover the entire continuum of health care, from inpatient to outpatient care; preventive to emergency care; primary care to specialty care, including long-term and palliative care; vision, hearing and oral health care; mental health and substance abuse services; as well as prescription medications, medical equipment, supplies, diagnostics and treatments…As a patient, all you need to do is go to the doctor and show your insurance card. Bernie's plan means no more copays, no more deductibles and no more fighting with insurance companies when they fail to pay for charges.....Under this plan, a family of four earning $50,000 would pay just $466 per year to the single-payer program, amounting to a savings of over $5,800 for that family each year. He will raise $630 billion by increasing the employer part of the payroll tax by 6.2 percent. He will raise $548 billion in various taxes on the rich along with the end of current tax breaks that subsidize health care.That's a total of $1.4 trillion.Current public spending on health care (mostly Medicare and Medicaid) runs around $1.2 trillion.This means that Sanders is figuring that under his plan total national health care spending will be about $2.6 trillion. (5)>>Iowa Caucuses. On Feb. 1, a few hundred thousand Iowa residents will gather in a couple thousand caucus sites and finally, finally kick-start the presidential nomination process. It's been 44 years since the first presidential caucuses that mattered, and 40 years since both parties held them. And yet, for the 315.8 million Americans who do not live in Iowa —The Iowa presidential caucuses are local party precinct meetings where registered Republicans and Democrats gather, discuss the candidates and vote for by party preference to elect delegates to the 99 county conventions and choose their candidate for their party’s nomination.The purpose of the caucus vote is to select delegates to attend a county convention. Each caucus sends a certain number of delegates, based on the population it represents. The delegates at the county convention in turn select delegates to go to the congressional district state convention, and those delegates choose the delegates that go to the national convention.
