I have come to the conclusion that there are more than obvious ways to derail a thread. Specifically, this thread about 'Little HAARP's' or,
actually, what I perceive as Global HAARP or HAARP Colossus. These ways are:
1. Slander every person, credentialed or not, who speaks out against HAARP.
2. Overwhelm the thread with posts that tangent and do that, preferrably, in technical language.
3. Play to the mob.
Therefore, first on the agenda is Nick Begich. Nick Begich is a lay person with a scientific bent who began speaking out against HAARP before HAARP
started operation. He co-authored the book: 'Angels Don't Play This HAARP', which is here:
Angels Don't Play This HAARP
His personal journey with HAARP and the HAARP agenda is detailed and exhaustive. His insight and conclusions on HAARP are, imo, far more valuable
than any you'll find here.
There's not a lot in his personal life to use against him so debunkers have elected to focus on one item and misrepresent that. Debunkers say that
he got a traditional medicine diploma from a diploma mill and paid $400 for it.
What actually happened was this:
Chapter Three/What's Going On Up There?
About this time, Sir Anton Jayasuriya of the Open International University of Complementary Medicines invited Begich to present a paper at the
World Congress on Alternative Medicines and to receive a doctorate degree in traditional medicine. The honor was totally unexpected, and he packed for
travel. As it turned out, circumstances did not allow him to travel to Sri Lanka, so he planned a trip to Finland instead. In Finland he would at last
see his old friend (from the 1978 conference and from correspondence) Dr. Reijo Makela, in order to talk about promoting Makela's scientific
discoveries in electrophysiology.
And what led up to that was this:
Nick Begich, Jr. was raised in a political family where "making a difference" was a way of life. His father, Nick Begich, Sr., served as a state
senator and later a representative in the United States Congress, and his mother Pegge was politically active in Alaska for more than 30
After the disappearance of the airplane carrying his father and U.S. House Majority Leader Hale Boggs in 1972 when Nick Jr. was a teenager, his
life changed irrevocably. However, the theme instilled by his parents was one of service and persistence. He and his five siblings between themselves
also chalked up a lifetime of political experience.
But an equally strong thread in Nick's life was an interest in science. His early investigations led to an invitation to the 1978 International
Biorhythm Research Association conference in Atlanta, as a youthful science "outsider" among fifty senior scientists from around the world.
As far as what is being bandied as a diploma mill: the outfit in question was established in the 1960's. Traditional medicine in this context means
things like chiropractic, acupuncture, homeopathy etc. Chiropractic began to be accepted about 15 to 20 years ago; as far as insurance paying for it.
Acupuncture has been accepted for 5 to 10 years; as far as insurance paying for it. These are fields of health that are, in some cases, as old as
humanity, but, in most cases, not acceptable to insurance companies and fraught with peril because of charlatan practitioners. However, western
medicine is also fraught with peril. News stories about plastic surgeons, dentists etc. who never received degrees, yet practice, abound. Horror
stories and human tragedies about pharmaceuticals also abound. Vigilance is ever required.
So this school offerred Nick Begich an honorary degree. He was flattered and packed to go accept it when one of his true loves intervened and he went
somewhere else instead in order to further his knowledge of the things he, personally, considered important.
The question that should be asked here is why is it so vital to put people off Nick Begich?
