JFK’s dream of breakthrough energy technology: it was real; it was Passamaquoddy

“Discussion of reviving the Passamaquoddy Tidal Power Project has surfaced every few years, with studies undertaken and debates renewed. Each time, most people agree that the engineering plan is sound: the project could be built and it would work. Other considerations, however, have kept the project from being resumed.”

The article describes John F Kennedy’s dream of a new energy project of awesome dimensions: the Passamaquoddy Tidal venture, which would have used huge water turbines to produce electricity for both America and Canada.

It would also have provided a model for the rest of the world.

I publish this account in the context of the Biden administration’s plan to convert huge tracts of privately owned US land to federally controlled property. On that land, relatively feeble “clean energy” technologies would replace, oil, coal, and natural gas—an unmitigated disaster. [1]

It’s intentional. It’s part and parcel of the technocratic program to LOWER THE PRODUCTION AND USE OF ENERGY ALL OVER THE WORLD…

Thus, “saving the planet” from global warming.

Actually, not saving anything, but instead, further destroying the lives of people from one end of the world to the other, by condemning them to far less available energy.

Meanwhile, actual alternative energy innovations are suppressed. [2]

This article is about the use of giant turbines submerged in water tides, and the resultant production of energy. JFK was vitally interested in the breakthrough Passamaquoddy Tidal Project, from the 1950s until his assassination in 1963. His public remarks, which I include in this piece, prove that fact.

As you read the brief history of Passamaquoddy, keep in mind that federal funding for the Project would be miniscule compared with the federal subsidizing of the oil and nuclear industries in America.

From mainememory.net: “Tide mills – submerged water wheels that run machinery – have been used in Maine at least since the 18th century.” [3]

“But tide mills are small-scale projects. For nearly 90 years, the idea of harnessing ocean tides on a larger scale, to generate electricity, has been debated in Maine. The most prominent – and often controversial – plan has been the Passamaquoddy Tidal Power Project.”

“One appeal of using ocean tides, rather than river tides, is that they occur so regularly, unaffected by droughts or other such disturbances.”

“Passamaquoddy Bay was an obvious choice for the project because more than 70 billion cubic feet of water in tides flowed in and out of the bay twice each day.”

“In 1920, Dexter P. Cooper, a young engineer who had worked with hydroelectric power, came up with a tidal power plan for Washington County.”

“His initial plan was international, damming both Cobscook and Passamaquoddy bays to create the pools necessary to feed turbines. He had a powerful supporter, Franklin D. Roosevelt, who owned a home on nearby Campobello Island.”

“Roosevelt endorsed the idea in a speech he gave in 1920 in Eastport while he was a candidate for vice president.”

“Through the 1920s, Cooper worked on the project, will help from Roosevelt.”

“They went to big power companies like General Electric, Westinghouse, and Alcoa, looking for money for initial work on the project. They hoped to have $1 million in private funds for construction.”

“New Brunswick [Maine] had agreed to plans for the huge project, passing an act to stipulate that the work had to be completed by 1932. The Federal Power Commission in the U.S. also had authorized development work.”

“The stock market crash of 1929 scuttled private investment and public support. In addition, Canadian fishermen worried about hurting fish stocks and railroads about damage to the tourist industry in New Brunswick.”

“When FDR became president and initiated the New Deal, he and Cooper and others pushed for federal investment in the project, arguing that it would provide much needed economic recovery to Washington County.”

“Critics said there was no market for power generated in Eastport, a fact that would make the project too expensive. A Federal Power Commission report determined that tidal power would be more expensive than steam-generated power.”

“Maine appointed a five-person Quoddy Hydro-Electric Commission in 1934 to further study the idea. The group reported in January 1935 that the project could proceed only if federal funds were available and that it would be appropriate for Maine to get relief funds to be used for tidal power.”

“Other study groups also stressed the benefits of Quoddy Tidal Power.”

“In 1935, the Passamaquoddy Bay Tidal Power Project received $7 million from the Public Works Administration, funds Roosevelt could allocate without Congressional approval. The money was spent on two dams across Cobscook Bay, a two-way navigation lock, a gate structure, a main generating station, and permanent and temporary housing at a nearby site named Quoddy Village.”

“The project faced a variety of political challenges and opposition from various sources in Maine and in Washington.’

“Among the opponents were Central Maine Power Co., Bangor Hydro-Electric and other power generating firms in Maine that feared the federally funded project would generate electricity at a lower cost than they could, thereby hurting their businesses.”

“Republican Governor Ralph Owen Brewster agreed to support the project if he was guaranteed some Democratic support and credit, something Roosevelt-loyal Democrats did not want to do.”

“In Congress, Southern opposition defeated funded for the project.”

“Quoddy Tidal Power was not refunded. Work was stopped in August 1936.”

“…Cancellation of the project left Eastport in a difficult situation because the town had invested in efforts to attract industry to the area. Eastport declared bankruptcy in 1937.”

“Discussion of reviving the Passamaquoddy Tidal Power Project has surfaced every few years, with studies undertaken and debates renewed. Each time, most people agree that the engineering plan is sound: the project could be built and it would work. Other considerations, however, have kept the project from being resumed.”

Next, here are “Remarks of Senator John F. Kennedy, Maine Democratic Party Conference Banquet, Augusta, Maine, November 15, 1959.” [4]


Kennedy: “Let us examine the impact of this coming revolutionary decade on the State of Maine, selecting only one vital area: the demand for electrical energy. By 1970, this state alone, according to official estimates, will need 405,000 more kilowatts of capacity than all existing and planned private power sources can possibly supply. Without this added power, your industrial development, your competitive status, your business costs and home conveniences, will all lag behind other parts of the country. But there is an answer – an answer now based on a solid, factual study – and that answer is a dream 40 years old that must now become a reality: Passamaquoddy.”

“The recent report of the International Passamaquoddy Engineering Board fully justifies all the years of urging, planning and hoping. Soon after I took my oath of office as Senator, nearly 7 years ago, I urged an immediate study of the economic feasibility of harnessing these huge tides which surge and recede every day through Passamaquoddy and Cobscook Bays. I said then that such a study was urgently needed if we were to plan and prepare for the pressing power needs of Maine and all New England. And it is clear from this recent report that to tap this fantastic flow of 70 billion cubic feet of water each day would be a tremendous spur to the economic growth of Maine, and New England, and the entire United States.”

“I do not say that it is a simple undertaking. It will require vision and effort and leadership – more than we have been accustomed to in recent years. It will take money – more than many would like to spend. But if we have leaders who are willing to look ahead – who are willing to spend money now in order to reap vast returns in the future – then we can look forward to a new supply of 550,000 kilowatts – to some one million tourists a year coming to view one of the most spectacular products of modern technology – to the attraction of innumerable new industries with growing power needs – and to the regeneration of the whole economy of Maine and Washington County in particular.”

“I know something of Maine’s economic problems – for we see them in Massachusetts as well: the problems of the hard-hit textile and fish industries, the problems of chronically depressed areas, the problems of transportation, unfair competition and so-called “economic old age”. But I also know the advantages which Maine possesses: a highly skilled and well-educated labor force, easy access to overseas raw materials, and abundant supplies of fresh water. Combine these assets with a tremendous new supply of power at Passamaquoddy and Rankin Rapids – and new industries will flock to Maine.”

“This is not a relief measure, born of the Great Depression that we are talking about. It is not a visionary dream – or an expensive pork-barrel project. We are talking about a great national asset, like TVA, the Grand Coulee Dam or the St. Lawrence Seaway. It is, moreover, a great undertaking in peaceful international cooperation. For New Brunswick and all of Canada also need power to expand their economies. As in the case of the Seaway, their needs and their problems will also be considered along with our own in determining the precise form this project will take.”

“But even if the United States must go it alone, the combined Passamaquoddy and Rankin Rapids Projects will not meet all of Maine’s power needs by the year 1980. And if the power is to be shared with Canada, it will not even fulfill your additional needs in 1970. In short, there is no time to be wasted. The money, the labor, the plans and the contracts and the equipment – on all of these a start must be made in the near future.”

“It will be a breathless undertaking – one of the most impressive wonders of the modern world. It need not – it should not – be a partisan undertaking. Both parties have played a role. There is work enough for all – the benefits from this project will be withheld from none. But this bold undertaking will require progressive leadership, unlimited vision and tireless determination – and these are the qualities which this Maine Democratic Conference is talking about tonight.”

Speech source: Papers of John F. Kennedy. Pre-Presidential Papers. Senate Files. Series 12. Speeches and the Press. Box 905, Folder: “Maine Democratic Party Banquet, Augusta, Maine, 15 November, 1959.

On July 16, 1963, JFK, then president—and four months before his assassination—delivered further remarks on the Passamaquoddy Project, just after receiving a comprehensive report on it. [5] [5a]

President Kennedy: “I AM pleased to meet today with Members of the Senate and the House of Representatives from New England to discuss the report on the International Passamaquoddy Tidal Project submitted by Secretary Udall. Two years ago, I asked Secretary Udall, in cooperation with the Corps of Engineers, to restudy the proposed project, and the hydroelectric potential of the St. John River in Maine to determine whether recent developments in electric power technology had enhanced the economic feasibility of these projects.”

“This report has been presented to me this morning, and its major conclusions are most encouraging. The report reveals that this unique international power complex can provide American and Canadian markets with over a million kilowatts for the daily peak period in addition to 250,000 kilowatts of firm power. Electric power rates in the New England region are among the highest in the United States, and the survey indicates that a massive block of power can be produced and delivered at a cost of about 4 mills, approximately 25 percent below the current wholesale cost of power in the region.”

“I am pleased to note also that the development plan proposed would preserve the superb recreational areas of the Allagash River from flooding, and that an area suitable for a new national park would be preserved in this scenic part of Maine.”

“Any proposed resource development project must, of course, meet the national interest test. It must strengthen the economy of the whole country and enable America to compete better in the market places of the world. I understand that, measured by the customary feasibility standards, the Passamaquoddy-St. John project now meets the national interest test.”

“During the last three decades American taxpayers, through their Federal Government, have invested vast sums of money in developing the water resources of the great rivers of this country—the Columbia, the Missouri, the Colorado, the Tennessee, and others. These investments are producing daily dividends for our country, and it is reasonable to assume that a similar investment [Passamaquoddy] in conserving the resources of New England will also benefit the Nation. It is also reasonable to assume that a New England development will stimulate more diversified industry, increase commerce, and provide more jobs.”

“Our experience in other regions and river valleys shows that private utility customers as well as public agency power users benefit from lowering the basic cost of electric energy.”

“Harnessing the energy of the tides is an exciting technological undertaking. France and the Soviet Union are already doing pioneering work in this field. Each day, over a million kilowatts of power surge in and out of the Passamaquoddy Bay. Man needs only to exercise his engineering ingenuity to convert the ocean’s surge into a great national asset. It is clear, however, that any development of this magnitude and new approach must also be considered in the context of the National Energy Study currently being undertaken by an interdepartmental committee under the chairmanship of the Director of the Office of Science and Technology, Dr. Wiesner.”

“These projects involve international waters, and equitable agreements must therefore be reached with the Canadian Government. Therefore, I am requesting the Secretary of State to initiate negotiations immediately with the Government of Canada looking toward a satisfactory arrangement for the sharing of the benefits of these two projects. Also, to insure full consideration of these proposals, I am directing that the Interior Department and the Corps of Engineers accelerate their work on the remaining studies of details.”

“The power-producing utilities of the United States are second to none in the world. The combined effort of science, private industry, and Government will surely keep this Nation in the forefront of technological progress in energy and electric power.”

“I think that this can be one of the most astonishing and beneficial joint enterprises that the people of the United States have ever undertaken and, therefore, I want to commend the Department of the Interior for its initiative in working on this matter the past 2 years, the congressional delegation from Maine which has been interested in this for many years, and the Members of Congress from New England who have supported this great effort. I think it will mean a good deal to New England and a good deal to the country.”

Apparently, the vision of Passamaquoddy died with President Kennedy, on November 22, 1963.

It should be understood that water turbines—whether they utilize the oceans or rivers—can supply enormous amounts of energy to the world. Clean energy, at affordable prices.

Passamaquoddy would have served as a stirring illustration.

We the people are engaged in an Energy War with globalist technocrats, who want to reduce overall energy production and usage on Earth, as a further means of controlling and weakening human life.

These technocrats lurk behind false science, propaganda, various government offices and agencies.

GREATER ENERGY is not a crime. It is a desired victory for all human beings.

34 comments on “JFK’s dream of breakthrough energy technology: it was real; it was Passamaquoddy

  1. David Walden says:

    I wonder how the drag created by the water flowing through the turbines would affect the rotational speed of the Earth, and thus the length of day over time.

    • Sid says:

      No problem. The earth doesn’t rotate.
      1 Chronicles 16:30: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable.”
      Psalm 93:1: “Thou hast fixed the earth immovable and firm …”
      Psalm 96:10: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable …”
      Psalm 104:5: “Thou didst fix the earth on its foundation so that it never can be shaken.”
      Isaiah 45:18: “…who made the earth and fashioned it, and himself fixed it fast…”

    • JBW says:

      Negligible. The disparity in masses is huge. Also what drives the planet’s rotation is dependent upon the sq root of the product of its gravitation and radius, the force of gravitation dependent upon total mass and its composition (weight).

      The moving mass of the tides by itself is >> than the resistance of the turbines.

  2. MM says:

    In fact you wouldn’t even need turbines to harness the power. Many years ago I wrote about the power generated by the Mississippi river in New Orleans, aka, the Crescent City. When the water hits the banks of the river at the foot of Canal Street downtown, it has just come around three bends upriver, and it bangs into the bank, which is clay, presumably. There was a study done by a consortium called RiverSphere IIRC. The force of the water hitting that spot was outrageous. No turbine needed. I guess the question would be how/where to store that power. I’m sure someone knows the answer, but again, how would they meter it? I get a charge out of that, ;p

  3. Paul Soucy says:

    Hi Jon,
    This article is interesting and I must say that some work has been done over the last 20 years in Nova Scotia using tidal power. However, it is still considered a small project and no-where near its real potential.
    I trust that the Irving family who owns the government of New Brunswick and is the biggest owner of land in New England states, are controlling the lack of interest in this great technology since their main business is in oil refineries as found in Saint John, New Brunswick. If ever a local link is close to cabal, this is it. Hence, New Brunswick is one of the poorest provinces in Canada, it’s prime minister is a former CEO of Irving’s, and people do not matter nor does energy in this province. All is controlled by the Irving and McCain families, two of the richest people in this country.

    • Ernest Judd says:

      Great analysis.
      Similar corrupt stories in BC over forestry fish farms, micro-hydro. only the ‘surface’ benefits are ever touted.

  4. It’s not a question of the technology, there is more than enough, it’s a question of the political will.

    Dr. Klinghardt said in a video that an acquaintance of his generated the energy for a total of 7 labs the size of football fields with one gold coin each. One day they all happened to burn down in the same night. The owner later had an “accident”. He mentioned further examples…

  5. Paul says:

    “This article
    is about
    the use of
    giant turbines
    in water tides,
    and the resultant
    production of energy.

    JFK was vitally interested
    in the breakthrough…”

    “All that was great
    in the past
    was ridiculed,
    suppressed —
    only to emerge
    all the more powerfully,
    all the more triumphantly
    from the struggle.”

    is the most important
    of man’s creative brain.
    The ultimate purpose
    is the complete mastery
    of mind
    over the material world,
    the harnessing
    of human nature
    to human needs.”

    ~ Nikola Tesla

    (all three for the first time together?):

  7. Opie Poik says:

    Humanity needs some breakthrough synergy technology.

    And the partisanship is good wolf vs. bad wolf.

  8. Serge Stone says:

    Paul Watson, the Founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, says: “I learned from the Mohawks years ago that we must live our lives by taking into account the consequences of our every action on all future generations of all species.”

    This is exactly what humans, who claim to be “an intelligent life form” (what a joke looking at this current “covid” bullshit all over the planet!), MUST do, when they propose projects like this. Huge turbines, permanently submerged in water, are sure to have a lot of detrimental effect on sea life in coastal waters, where most sea life is concentrated anyway and where the damage wreaked by the “intelligent life form” over the last few decades has already been catastrophic with more than two thirds of all species already gone forever. And damming bays too? The deeply negative effect of damming is well known and proven in practice all over the world, and there’s nothing even to argue about.

    The fact is that the oceans are warming, acidifying and deoxygenating; being contaminated with nuclear radiation, by offshore oil and gas drilling as well as oil spills; being damaged by deep sea mining; being polluted by industrial (including chemical) and farming wastes while being damaged in a myriad other ways and being overfished. In short: the oceans are under siege on a vast range of fronts and are effectively ‘dying’.

    Here is a brief 18-point outline of what we are doing that is destroying the oceans – where life on Earth originated and which remains the planet’s main life support system by dominating the processes that keep our planet habitable such as regulating the climate by absorbing excess carbon dioxide and heat – while also giving you some idea of the impacts of this on the creatures that live in and on the oceans:

    “As can be seen from the evidence presented above, the oceans are under siege on a vast range of fronts. They are being stripped of everything of value to humans (ranging from its many creatures, such as fish and whales, to products such as sand, oil and minerals) while having a monumental range and quantity of garbage and pollutants (ranging from household to radioactive waste) dumped into them.

    While there is considerable but still utterly inadequate attention given to the climate catastrophe and some activists draw attention to other threats to human survival (such as the nuclear threat, the biodiversity crisis, the dangers of electromagnetic radiation and especially 5G, geoengineering, and destruction of the rainforests), the ongoing threat to the biosphere as a whole, including the oceans, attract only marginal attention and, sometimes, tokenistic responses.

    And because human beings are so psychologically dysfunctional and, so far at least, incapable of responding strategically to our multifaceted crisis, the urge to consume and accumulate will continue to overwhelm serious efforts to avert our own extinction.”

    “Identifying when we have ‘enough’ is a capacity that most modern humans have never acquired for reasons that can be easily explained. See ‘Love Denied: The Psychology of Materialism, Violence and War’.

    Hence, our world continues to vanish, as has been extensively documented. For a summary, see ‘Human Extinction Now Imminent and Inevitable? A Report on the State of Planet Earth’.

    And nowhere is this more evident than in the planet’s oceans, which are being systematically destroyed and where life is being progressively extinguished.” (links in the above article)

    • j t says:

      Really. And anyone that cares should really stop using electricity, too, including from batteries and solar panels and wind turbines. Think of all the damage to multiple environments from all the mining for all that lithium and rare metals and silver, and drilling for gas or oil, and fracking, and bird slaughter and ugliness from the wind machines and disposal of all the above in landfills. No coal either, obviously. And if we don’t want to mess with any aquatic environments, then no water wheels even, and certainly no dams for hydroelectric. So Serge, I’ll expect your use of electricity to stop completely, immediately. Or you can just STFU, you self-righteous self-important hypocrite.

    • Tom M Culhane says:

      Thank you Serge Stone. The media cartel has a blackout on what’s really happening to the oceans and Nature in general.

      There were 3 billion people when I was born, and we are now approaching 8 billion. I’ve brought nobody into Plantation Earth and if enough others had followed suit we could be at 1 billion. One eighth the pollution, the natural forests returning, Mother Earth healing. And that’s with no change in lifestyle. People could go further, give up the car as I have, return to communities, and much more.

      But I’ve had to go it alone mostly. People get angry when you suggest we SOLVE our problems. When you suggest we respect the rest of the Web of Life. Humans weren’t born insane, but the establishment does that to their minds.

      Readers if you’ve had to go it alone, persevere. It’s still worth it.

  9. BDBinc says:

    So many suppressed great ideas and plans for ( free)energy creating inventions. There is even a hard to find book called “Suppressed Inventions”.
    Anything that gets us off the matrix grid is not desired by the global central banking cabal .

  10. Stephen says:

    According to a report from the World Energy Council and Bloomberg New Energy Finance, electricity generated from the movements of the ocean cost two to nine times as much as the highest average price for wind energy in Europe. Because these cost estimates only come from a handful of plants, however, it is hard to gauge how much these technologies could cost in the future.

    The high cost comes largely from the extensive engineering work necessary to build the power plants, install them, and connect them to the power grid. Many companies have proposed technologies that might more affordably harness energy from waves or tides, but many are still undergoing testing and a clearly leading technology hasn’t emerged yet, says Alexis Gazzo, an Ernst & Young partner in France. The lack of developed supply chains for any one technology means that components are very expensive. Even at plants that are already built, the variability of tidal patterns can lower the efficiency of the turbines, according to a brief from the International Renewable Energy Association. Project planners also have to consider additional costs for maintenance and monitoring the plant’s impact on the environment.

    The U.K. passed on commissioning a tidal range power station near Cardiff, Wales, after determining it could have adverse effects on wildlife, in addition to finding it would take between four and nine years to build at a cost of up to 34 billion pounds. A study found that the barrage would cause even more water to flow into an estuary, altering habitats for birds and fish.

    However, the U.K. is still pursuing other tidal projects. The country approved the MeyGen array off the Scottish coast. That array uses another design to generate power from the tides. Instead of being part of a barrage structure as in the Rance River plant, these windmill-like turbines are placed in an array underwater. The design looks like a submerged version of an offshore wind farm. The water’s current moves the turbines, which generate electricity transmitted to the grid through an underwater cable. So far, the U.K. government and turbine maker Atlantis have secured 51 million pounds in initial funding for the project, which is expected to add nearly 400 megawatts of generating capacity by the early 2020s.

    Many of the prime spots for tidal or wave technologies are not near the grid, which means new undersea cables would be required. An ocean research center in the Bay of Fundy, home of the biggest tides in the world, recently finished laying down 11 kilometers of undersea cables to create the world’s biggest transmission line for underwater turbines. The cables will carry enough electricity to power 20,000 homes at peak capacity.

    The Takeaway:

    “Despite investments in tidal or wave power from the U.K. and other countries, the technologies have developed very slowly. Two manufacturers of wave power equipment, Oceanlinx and Wavebob, went out of business last year. And just last month, Siemens sold its tidal power unit. It is still hard to gauge how much ocean-power technologies would really cost if implemented at scale.”


    According to MIT Technology Review, wind power trumps tidal power making tidal power obsolete before even begining the project.

    The question that remains with me is: Is this report legitimate and honest?

  11. peterbro says:

    Jon speaks of the creative capacity of the imagination.
    Imagination can come from one of two sources: the mind, or the consciousness.

    Imagination sourced from the mind uses knowledge accumulated by the mind to create mundane tools, which can be either destructive or useful or somewhere in between.

    Imagination as an expression of the consciousness can only be transcendent. There are more solutions than there are problems.
    Nikola Tesla used the later, and was able to penetrate into nature’s higher mysteries.
    He was able to draw limitless power from a higher dimension and manifest it in this reality.
    The tools he fabricated for this task were the result of his imagination.

    The reason we don’t have access to costless energy, is because as JP Morgan said to Tesla: “what’s in it for me if I can’t put a meter on it?”
    That mindset that prevails today and is particularly evidenced in those who hold the reigns of social and economic power is why we don’t have a just and equitable civilisation founded on superior ethics.
    Damn, such a civilisation would be able to ponder on their reason for being and their purpose here in creation.

  12. Tim_2A says:

    When I think of “power generation,” especially on a personal level, I’m always reminded of Frank Herbert’s ingenious idea of “stillsuits”, that he only described in a minimal way in “Dune,” and of how, by their construction, they were able to use the expansion and contraction of respiration, and the heel-and-toe motion of walking, to condense, distill, and purify exhaled breath, along with other bodily waste products.

    I’ve always wondered why no company or individual, to my knowledge, has ever built such devices.

    To expand further, while still retaining the original design’s main function of water purifying, the “stillsuit” could easily be made into an electrical generator, especially by combining today’s graphene, solar, and energy storage options.

    Why use ‘their’ system? Build something of your own.

    • Jim S Smith says:

      The electrical-generation side of it sounds too close to the “human batteries” concept illustrated in the Matrix movie mini-series.

      If we actually had better quality technology, AND used AC power that oscillated at closer to 400 CPS (“Cycles-per-Second”- or 400 Hz) – [ I believe N. Tesla was looking into using 500 kHz ] – THIS AC frequency range could easily cut down the huge amount of power wastage by actually shrinking how much wiring is used in the power transformers! – 50 to 60 Hz AC power is horribly inefficient!

      Anyone who is knowledgeable in electronics, especially radio theory, reactances, etc – would know exactly what I am talking about. When we lose around 15 to 22 percent of our usable electrical power through in-circuit losses, hysteresis-losses, and other resistance/reactance losses – it doesn’t take a nuclear scientist/engineer to figure it out.

      Nikola Tesla had it right on the money, when referring to AC delivery of electric power – and he also had his mind on the right answer as to what frequency range it should be delivered at.

      BTW: Military RADAR systems used to be powered with 400 Hz AC power – because this helped to improve the stability and accuracy of the RADAR circuitry.

      ( Plus, 50 to 60 Hz AC is one of the big “bugaboos” behind our collective, and MOUNTING EM-related health problems! )

    • JBW says:

      Because engineering a stillsuit powered in that way is a nightmare. The wearer thereof would have great difficulty in locomotion.

  13. Jim S Smith says:

    Hydro-power is perhaps one of the absolute “cleanest” means of generating electricity. Still yet to see any scientific proof that hydro-power generates any so-called “green house gases”, even though there have been some who tried to say it does.

    I live in a region that is supplied almost exclusively by hydro-power facilities. For now (barring any political shenanigans getting in the way), we probably pay some of the cheapest rates for our usage of electrical power.

    Where I have a huge problem with the electric power industry:

    Is when our “government”, together in cahoots with the private electric power industry, try to merge our entire national electrical grid, to the point that we have a completely shared market – with all of its attendant “ills” – to include the possibility of much higher costs to the average user (this being most common with the rise of speculation and futures markets of electric power).

    Suppression has always been the preferred answer of tyrants.

    The ‘cap’s’ idea does not involve saving the planet from a fictional event or providing new innovative energy sources. The cap intends to lower the numbers of troublesome human beings by up to 90%, according to some of ‘their’ figures. At such low numbers of humans the present array of renewables would meet requirements. There fixed it for you.

    initiation of the cull?

    The location of any kind of tidal dams is important. Tidal estuaries are vital and need to be left alone.
    Pipe dreams are fine, but to supply large scale base load, dreams don’t do the job.

    A poem I wrote a couple of years ago to honor JFK:

    The Eternal Flame

    We are like a mote of dust floating in the morning sky
    Tiny teardrop that the Angel of starlight cried.
    Adorning a frosty Arlington hillock burns the Eternal Flame
    Lit by the Archangel Gabriel in Heavenly Father’s Name.
    Burning with love and undaunted courage
    Defender against iron tyranny’s awful scourge.
    Beneath this proud and mighty flame
    Rest John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s mortal remains.
    Bravely did he master the tiger of oppression’s ride
    Becoming a martyred son of freedom’s pride.
    With the devotion of an Angel’s chore
    He sought an end to a perilous cold war.
    Our Thirty Fifth President gave his life
    So that the world might see a new birth of freedom’s light.
    ‘Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation’
    He passed the torch of liberty to a new generation.
    He saw peace as our sacred responsibility
    For without the dream of peace what is liberty?
    Proud we are of our ancient heritage
    Orphans of a touching celestial marriage
    Where love eternal betrothed to mortal strife
    In the falling tears of his lovely wife.
    For in the depths of her loneliness
    God’s hand reaches out to us in holiness.
    As Eternal Flame burns proud and sure
    We remember the promise of Camelot’s investiture
    The President began anew the quest for peace
    Before the dark powers of destruction could be unleashed.
    For thirteen days in October of Sixty-Two
    Humanity was trapped in annihilation’s final queue.
    With love’s legacy the President stood strong
    Opposing a desperate and warmongering throng.
    And communicating with peace and grace
    Began a dialogue with the descendants of Peter the Great.
    With great courage, vigor and zest
    The President wrote to Premier Khrushchev.
    They spoke of the tribulation of a hard and bitter peace
    And that life on Earth deserved a brand new lease.
    Both understanding the ancient truth
    ‘That the wicked flee when no man persueth.’
    And in the hearts of these two men
    Was born a peace that only our better Angels tend.
    Then the President did with loving apprehension
    Say a prayer for our troubled Nation:

    ‘Oh thou God that heard Solomon in the Night
    I cannot guide this Nation without thy light.’

    Our President lost his very own life
    Because he raised the torch of wisdom’s light.
    And knowing he too had a rendezvous with death
    Fought for peace until his very last breath.
    On film it seemed as if all time froze
    In awful cluster of bloody rose
    And in the purifying furnace of affliction
    Is wrought democracy’s beautiful benediction
    As long as God’s light lives in our hearts
    From freedom’s promised land we will never depart.
    For under mortal strife’s mystical dominion
    We gather in the sheaves of holy freedom.
    And under fading shadow of Eagle feather
    Let Mankind’s love burn together
    To share an intimacy heaven sent
    Softly kissing the blushing present.
    For though Camelot’s dream is no more
    Follow the tearful trail of her lost lore
    And peace will don your gentle heart
    Giving all mankind a brand new start.

    In the name of the heavenly host
    Bless your servant John Fitzgerald Kennedy
    In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

    Thank you Mr. President

    This dream was of course anathema to the Rockefellers. It’s one of the reasons why the Rockefellers were behind his assassination.

    Lets see, if I take all my vaccines, drink the water, eat the gmo, pesticide, herbicide toxic food, with fake produced meat, watch the tv, have a micro chip installed under my skin, enjoy all of the chemical fall out from the skies from SRM, give up all of my rights which are corelated with property ownership to become happy, get into a smart city, connect my body and mind to a computer to live in a virtual world with universal basic income paychecks where more money equates with more prompt obedience as my motivation, your telling me this is where life is at? To place scientists as holy men.

    I read a book called Born in Blood. I was shaken by how even way back in history how people would give up everything, sex, their property, ect and totally commit to being part of an organization, regardless of if its a good or not so good one. For money, for service, for belonging? The book is so hardcore to my brain, I couldnt even finish reading it.

    People must see benefits for giving up everything to be part of some cause which leads to where? By whom? By what ideology.

    Why not cut all the bullshit and just shoot for freedom? Isnt technocracy slavery?

    • Jim S Smith says:

      It’s called “herd mentality”. It is instinctual for human beings, beings who are “social creatures”.

      What originally separated our own species from most others, is that we, individually, could decide for ourselves what part of the “social contract” benefited us, and what part(s) we should discard (for our own well-being, that is).

      With all the research done by the folks at the TAVISTOCK INSTITUTE, the world’s oldest and largest facility on the research and study of “human behavior”, was the culmination of many years’ worth of the study of the “human condition” – using the backdrop of human history and events. Anyone one can study and learn from the plethora of examples from human history – to learn that controlling human activity and behavior is a science of its own.

      This is also where the study of Psychology has been successfully weaponized, to further the methodology of controlling human beings. The fraud “science” of Psychiatry – is where the knowledge gained from the study of Psychology is put into practice (IE: Forming and implementing the methods of control, based on the subject’s particular mental and emotional state – and perceived needs).

      The whole object-goal: To convince the human populace that there is a clear and present danger to themselves, and that ONLY the “experts”, “authorities”, etc – can answer to that “danger”, and protect “the herd”.

      It’s this induced “feelings of helplessness and hopelessness” that are the key weapons in the hands of any tyrant.

      ALL entertainment (“en-train-ment”), media, public discourse, and the attendant policies (through “public policy”) that were originally designed by organizations like the TAVISTOCK INSTITUTE for effect.

      All it takes is ONE “Silver Bullet”: To imagine yourself as capable, on your own, to solve your own life’s problems. (The hated “self-reliance, self-sufficiency” aspect.)

    During the inflationary 70s I worked on my engineering bachelor program. Alternate energy was a big obsession during that decade. What I found in examining each of the basic technologies, wind, solar, and hydro, only hydro came close to competing with organic fuels in overall cost and reliability. Distribution costs are largely what tipped the scale for installation of small environmental power generation at remote sites. Maintenance costs are always higher with these technologies. Tapping the ocean’s tidal force is an engineering nightmare because of Nature’s natural destructive power. The problems seen in the recent Texas freeze are an harbinger of what tidal power generation involves.

    JFK was an earnest man, but like all politicians, terrible at engineering, whether it be social, economic, agricultural, environmental, or communal. As soon as government gets involved, costs always skyrocket.

    JFK’s personal interest was history, so I’ve read. But he did not study his history well enough, and lost his head because of it.
