Recent discovery of Lagrangian points in the future may lead to remote WMD's, or even remote populations of people living 150 million kilometres away from the blue planet we call home. Lagrangian points are areas in space at which plantary and solar forces of gravity cancel each other, inside these areas mass is virtually weightless.

It has been believed that natually (cosmically speaking) a mars sized cosmic object had developed inside of one of these points, becoming so massive that it broke free of the lagrangian point and accelerated towards earth creating a 2 part breakaway of the entire planet. The second part being placed into a geostationary orbit around earth - ofcourse the natural moon.

If an other object this size developed in any of the lagrangian points scattered around at distance from planet earth it could spell disaster for billions of people. There are 2 langrangian points around earth which are constant though there are up to 5 at any point, these 2 pose the greatest threats as could have been withholding great masses of objects ready to unleash upon earth for millions of years. These two points are at approximately 60 degrees in either direction from earth in its own orbit.

I have expressed how dangerous these points are but these points could be harnessed to benefit mankind. In the future we could take advantage of these cosmic anomalies to develop our own celestrial home away from home. A second earth, after we have ravaged the beauty and resources of our own we could then repopulate this new planet previously developed to replicate everything our planet used to be.

Given the millenia required to develop a species from scratch, it's highly unlikely that another sentient species could develop in one of these gravitational anomalies.
It's easier to assume that they are prime sources for einstein-rosen bridges, and that any sufficient body of mass that would accumulate would pass through to the event horizon of the wormhole and never be able to escape the black hole.

In conclusion, we're safe, don't worry.

To develop a species from scratch may create millenia but for a species to migrate does not, any sufficient body of mass is likely to accumalate and the non-existent wormhole: the non-existent wormhole inside of the lagrangian points would be very unlikely to transport the matter to anywhere in the vicinity of a blackhole.

It is much more likely that they will, if sufficient mass accumulated to be released from the gravitational anomaly and quite likely collide with our Big Blue and damage it somewhat considerably.

Even NASA says 'Lagrangian' nowadays but you have to admit it sounds pretty awful. The proper term is 'Lagrange point'.

This article discusses Lagrange points in the solar system and what's currently occupying them. It addresses most of your concerns. I was charmed to discover that space explorers and astronomers make regular use of Lagrange points: right now, SOHO and WMAP are at solar L1 and L2 respectively, while the solar Lagrange points also form something called the Interplanetary Superhighway, which makes it possible to get around the Solar System using a lot less energy than otherwise.

The author even opens the door on a little speculative paranoia:

It has been shown that Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, the one that crashed into Jupiter, was following one of these chaotic interplanetary superhighway orbits through a Lagrange point. Apparently there is some evidence that the dinosaur-killer asteroid followed one to Earth.

By the way, the moon's orbit around Earth is not geostationary; if it were observers on one side of Earth would always see the moon hanging in the same place in the sky (which would vary depending on where on Earth's surface they were), while observers on the other side of the planet would never see the moon at all. The moon has a perfectly ordinary orbit of just over 29 1/2 days' duration.
