Podcast Channel Takedown Response
by Dennis Bushnell, NASA Langley Research Center – 2011
Presentation dealing with future strategic issues on future warfare. Looks at the capabilities of the ‘enemy after Next’, ongoing worldwide technological revolutions, economic trends and potential nature of Farther Term Warfare.
Bushnell came to NASA Langley in June of ’63, drawn by the allure of the Apollo program and with an interest in high-speed gas dynamics.
In his long career at NASA Langley, Bushnell has worked on the Gemini, Apollo and Space Shuttle programs. He also ran technology for the National Aero-Space Plane (NASP), worked the delta wing X-15 and did research in viscous flow physics and drag reduction. And that was all before he became Chief Scientist in the mid ’90s and took on “just about every technical area” at the center.
The walls of Bushnell’s office are flush with awards and certificates. He’s a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and the Royal Aeronautical Society. He’s published somewhere in the neighborhood of 260 reports, given hundreds of lectures, and by his estimation, at least six patents carry his name.
He’s played the game, he says, but by his own rules.
Bushnell is concerned, though, that the American education system isn’t fostering that same play-by-your-own-rules mentality in today’s children. In a world where invention and innovation produce wealth, he says, American culture is more fixated on athletes and celebrities, and creativity is being snuffed out early on.
“Right now, China has more honor students than we have students,” he said.
Famous Quotes from a White House advisor
Would food be considered an instrument of national power? … Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can’t/won’t control their population growth?
Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.
Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the third world, because the US economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries.
No one will ever win the battle of the sexes; there’s too much fraternizing with the enemy.
Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.
There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.
The elderly are useless eaters.
It is not a matter of what is true that counts, but a matter of what is perceived to be true.
Did you see the ratio Bloomberg just earned for a tweet which recommends getting used to lentils instead of meat, switching to public transportation, and avoiding buying things in bulk?
The piece, written by economist Teresa Ghilarducci, recommends that families earning under $300,000 per year consider switching to public transportation, embracing a veggie diet, and “rethink those costly pet medical needs.”
Unsurprisingly, Ghilarducci and the far-left “New School for Social Research” she works for is affiliated with the World Economic Forum (WEF) – which, in addition to bragging about having ‘infiltrated‘ various world governments – infamously suggested that people get used to eating bugs due to inevitable food shortages, and
Which brings us to the WEF’s latest – warning of an impending food crisis kicked off by the war in Ukraine.
- More people around the world will go hungry as a result of the pandemic, high fuel prices and the conflict in Ukraine.
- Russia and Ukraine are also major producers and suppliers of fertilizers and their raw materials.
- Existing logistical issues with moving grain and food are likely to worsen.
- Disruptions will put further pressure on this year’s harvest and lead to higher food prices.
- Even before the pandemic, the FAO estimated that 690 million people or 9% of the world’s population, were facing food insecurity.
In short, the Ukraine war is accelerating the existing problem of inflation and food shortages, so hold on to your hats and consider a ‘more sustainable diet’ because things are about to get much, much worse.
These four horsemen appear to symbolically portray four disastrous occurrences that will take place before the second coming of Jesus Christ.
1. The White Horse – Conqueror
And I looked, and behold, a white horse! And its rider had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he came out conquering, and to conquer.Revelation 6:2
The first horse, a white one, seems bent on conquest. Its rider wears a crown and holds a bow.
Some people have attributed the rider of this horse as the person of Jesus, as later in Revelation 19 Jesus rides a white horse.
However, others have said this is the antichrist. The antichrist does try to mimic works the Messiah can do such as miracles (2 Thessalonians 2:9), and he seems bent on conquering the world. This article aligns with the latter view.
2. The Red Horse – War
And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.Revelation 6:4
The next horse, a fiery red one, takes peace from the Earth. He carries a large sword and blatantly represents war and violence. This makes sense to follow after the conquest-driven horse and rider. Conquest often leads to war.
Although many wars have ravaged the Earth’s history, none will quite wreak as much destruction as those that occur in the End Times.
3. The Black Horse – Famine
And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart, a dry measure equal to about a quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”Revelation 6:5b-6
This rider carries a pair of scales in his hand and seems to refer to a famine that will wipe out wheat and barley supplies, and spare oil and wine reserves.
Some scholars attribute this famine to the wars that occurred before it. Throughout history, those who tend to farm and contribute to food supplies yield such duties to fight in wars. Because of this, the food supplies suffer, and entire civilizations collapse.
4. The Pale Horse – Sickness/Plague
And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.Revelation 6:8
Naturally, when food supplies dwindle and wars break out, death follows. The pale horse has the power of famine, plague, and to kill by sword and by the wild beasts. Sickness and famine often break out as a result of warfare, and this horse stands as no exception.
Have the four horsemen already come?
Historians can often point to the fourteenth century as a time that echoed several of these apocalyptic events. Nevertheless, history does have a way of repeating itself. Even if the events that transpired in the past reflected those in Revelation, we have yet to experience these again.
Why do they matter to Christians?
Christians, during the End Times, will experience these horsemen. They will know death, disease, famine, and many trials. The antichrist, after all, will cut off food supplies from those who do not have the Mark of the Beast (Revelation 13:16-17), and he will kill and persecute many followers of Christ.
During that time, Christians can rest in the hope that Jesus will restore all things and make them right. That the Faithful and True will ride upon His white horse, and conquer death, famine, disease, and every pestilent thing.
