“Beyond loyalty the harsh requirements of security”! – “Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds”.

openherimer

On July 14th 1954, the Physicists Robert Oppenheimer (1904 – 1967: easy way to remember is: 18th century beginning to next 75 years roughly. 1900s) was on Time Magazine’s cover .

Oppenheimer was the wartime head of the Los Alamos Laboratory and is among those who are credited with being the "father of the atomic bomb" for their role in the Manhattan Project, the World War II undertaking that developed the first nuclear weapons used in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Time read as a caption: “Beyond loyalty the harsh requirements of security”!

After he had seen the fireball glowing after the bomb had been dropped. This quote has become infamous and it is actually chapter 11 verse 32 of the Bhagavad-Gita, a scripture which has been revered by Hindus for thousands of years.

He is said to have famously quoted on “Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds”.

July 16 1945 was the first atomic bomb test. August 9, 1945 the bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.

(One of the planes in the squadron – for the Bomb dropped on Hiroshima was called “Necessary Evil" flown by Captain. George W. Marquardt- his duties: Strike observation and photography)

The story of the Gita is that of Arjuna, a human prince who has been summoned to a war between princely cousins. Arjuna doesn't want to fight — not because he lacks courage, or skill, but because it is a war of succession, so his enemies are his own cousins, his friends, his teachers. Arjuna does not want to kill them. He confides in his charioteer, who turns out to be the god Krishna in a human form. The text of the Gita is mostly Krishna telling Arjuna why Arjuna must go to war, even if Arjuna does not want to do it.

Krishna's argument hinges on three points: 1. Arjuna is a soldier, and so it is his job — his duty — to wage war; 2. It is Krishna's job, not Arjuna's, to determine Arjuna's fate; 3. Arjuna must ultimately have faith in Krishna if he is going to preserve his soul.

Arjuna eventually starts to become convinced. He asks Krishna if he will show him his godlike, multi-armed form. Krishna obliges, showing Arjuna an incredible sight:

At Franklin Roosevelt’s funeral he read a passage from the Gita chapter 17 verse 3 ,

“Man is a creature whose substance is faith, what his faith is, he is”.

A thousand simultaneous suns

Arising in the sky

Might equal that great radiance,

With that great glory vie.

Arjuna is awestruck and spellbound:

Amazement entered him; his hair

Rose up; he bowed his head;

He humbly lifted folded hands,

And worshipped God. . . .

Many people got left out, because they predicted the market collapse. The market is a leading indicator of the overall health of the economy of the USA

S@P gained around 18%

DOW gained around 21%

NASDAQ gained around 23%

41 times DOW hit new highs!! 41 times!

Monday August 21, 2017 is a coast to caost solar eclipse and some people as usual are predicting dire straits for USA. They may or may not be right. But as of today USA is doing great!!

But for the naysayers, here is some good news too…

Electronics for Imaging – EFII, collapsed 41% in thousands of times more volume than average. This might be a time to time to buy Put Options. Remember Enron accounting irregularities! – Thursday was quarterly results and they failed to release it , citing issues over revenue recognition!!

Applied Optoelectronics – AAOI, plummeted 27%. The maker of optical-communications devices forecast current-quarter revenue that was well below estimates. fiber optics industry group is #1 rank in all industry groups.

Trivago- TRVG, collapsed 18% to a three-month low after the travel-booking company reported loss in the quarter.

Only in DC – the butterfly effect

weiner-sex-scandal-part-3-feature

Butterfly effect – It was made famous in a movie. It is now a cultural trite. But my good friend Liza mentioned this and she had connected the dots that i did not see! Thank you Liza!

Basically it is small prior events of no special consequence during their occurrence but whose effect is significant and causal for a big following event.

Now lets see.

Comey effect is already well know. It is when Former FBI Director James Comey released a letter during the final stages of the election of POTUS.

Nate Silver (I respect him a lot) writes : Hillary Clinton would probably be president if FBI Director James Comey had not sent a letter to Congress on Oct. 28. The letter, which said the FBI had “learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation” into the private email server that Clinton used as secretary of state, upended the news cycle and soon halved Clinton’s lead in the polls, imperiling her position in the Electoral College.

from CNN

“FBI Director James Comey revealed Wednesday that Hillary Clinton emails containing classified information were “somehow” being forwarded to former congressman Anthony Weiner by his wife and top Clinton aide, Huma Abedin.

Comey provided new details to Congress about how Clinton’s emails ended up on Weiner’s computer as the FBI director strongly defended his decision to alert Congress just days before the 2016 election about his agency’s investigation into emails potentially related to Clinton’s personal server.”
Weiner get into court and pleads guilty on May 19th
but, the daily Mail of UK publishes the story of Weiner on September 21st 2017, just weeks before the election
Weiner is under Federal Investigation

Oct. 28, 2016 : Comey announced that new emails had been discovered on the laptop of former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, who was married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, and that messages may be related to the Clinton probe. His announcement came 11 days before Election Day.

How did Weiner get caught? Who informed the daily Mail in September? When FBI launched investigation into Weiner, they had surreptitiously discover the emails!! Who was the 15 year old? How did this happen for months when he was texting to her? Was she planted by someone who knew Weiner had classified information from Hillary Clinton?

Then after all said and done. Comey had to say something!! That was new evidence right before elections!

Now we have the link – 15 year old that led to downfall of Hillary Clinton’s POTUS run!

and i thought i never believed in conspiracies!!
