“Leaks are coming out all over the place . . . Professional astronomersand military types are reporting that ‘a mini-solar system is moving into our Solar System’.”— Prof. James McCanney Get ready to be blown away! Not by a CAT5 hurricane or F5 tornado, but just as much. This is so massive that I had to report on it. My Video Commentary on the matter: James McCanney, a well-known scientist and owner of the jmccanneyscience.com site, has changed his mind regarding Planet X. Albeit, McCanney has been a strong advocate of the existence of an intersecting ‘mini solar system’ known as Planet X—now headed our way, and, as models predict, will wreak havoc on Earth within this generation—has now decided to go ‘cold turkey’ on the entire group of colleagues and body of independent researchers which have studied the incoming comet-like planetary object basing a lot of our work on his assessments and analysis. In spite there being a wealth of well-documented and historical evidence that Planet X is real, McCanney has simply ‘veered off course’ on national radio in an appearance on The Power Hour with Joyce Riley. To my amazement, on they day of this report, I received an email in my inbox from a fellow colleague and researcher, Sheldon Day on the matter. McCanney has made a fool of himself again folks. He was on the 3rd Hour of THE POWER HOUR radio show today with Joyce Riley claiming he sees “NO EVIDENCE” of PLANET X.

Well, please click links BELOW to listen to the OLD McCanney before the National Security Apparatus “muzzled” his precious Scientific mind !!!!–SHELDON My response to an email form Sheldon Day on this news is below: “You have got to be fricking kidding me!!! McCaney has been silenced? That means that either X is imminent or it will be a no-show. I rather believe the former considering that 3 volcanoes just blew their top in Asia, Burma, Java, Japan and now Helium releases have been detected under the Los Angeles Basin.”—Alexander Backman The evidence is clear that Planet X exists and is incoming! “The fact is that all government employees, especially those at NASA, are under strict gag ordersnot to tell the public of impending disaster (to prevent public panic).”—Scientist, James McCanney This quote above, from McCanney himself, explains how the scientific community is being silenced or ‘muzzled’ to prevent that the civilian populations of earth know about the threat while, at the same time, the rich and powerful men of the earth go hide in their subterranean end-of-the-world safe havens while we, on the surface, are left off to fend for ourselves as this wrecking ball wreaks bloody-hell on all of us. Evidence of censorship of scientists is abundant world-wide. And for those who do not comply and follow suit with the tyrannical fascist scientific dictatorship that pays their salaries, they are just ‘terminated’. Case in point, that has recently made the news, is of Dr. James Jeffrey Bradstreet, an autism researcher and alternative treatment developer, who appeared dead in a riverbed because he ‘committed suicide’ by a gunshot to the chest. Who commits suicide that way? A hillbilly maybe. Vincent Van Gogh, maybe. But a Medical professional? No! He was, as they say in the CIA, ‘waxed’. May I remind you that Dr. Bradstreet was totally against vaccines. Likewise, in my opinion, McCanney has been either bought off or threatened. Maybe his family has been threatened as well. We just don’t know what goes behind does evil blue doors at NASA and at that Lucifer Telescope that the Jesuits have in Arizona and which Tom Horn and Chris Putnam visit so much. Also, McCanney could be speaking under duress in the interview. Whatever it is, it just does not compute! If McCanney has been threatened, at his age, would he coward out this late in the game and follow-suit with the Powers That Be to go on Alternative Media and have the audacity to say that there is NO EVIDENCE FOR THE EXISTENCE OF PLANET X? I do not think so! Other senior astronomers, seismologists and scientists like Caros Muñoz Ferrada from Chile, have publicly warned of Planet X or ‘Hercolobus’—as it is termed in South America and Spain. At the end of this video interview, Muñoz says it all! Another possibility is that McCanney has been paid off some way? Maybe he has received one of those few and exclusive Ryholite color-coded passes known as Rex-84 that are only given to the ones that are in-the-known about the impending geophysical shift that is about to blindside us and who ingeniously think they are going to weather out the incoming monster by hiding in their ‘digs’ underground. I have personally met three Federal and Military employees that have these Hades-type CARDS. One told me that the Government is not going to save anyone, Another, told me that he/she would advise me when he/she received the order to go underground, giving us a few months, maybe weeks to expect the worse. And the last one said to me, that they would bring down the grid first, then go underground and we, on the surface, would be left off to fend for ourselves. Something does not check out here. It stinks to High Heaven! So-long McCanney. In our eyes, you are still a decent and highly-respected scientist. It appears that maybe you know something we do not know and, because of this foreknowledge, you have been either threatened to keep your mouth shut or have been paid off. After all, military astronomers are removed from the equation all the time when they decide to go public with the truth on Planet X. Steve Winwood, the guy who worked at CERN and the South Polar Telescope and other engineers like Phil Schneider and Thomas Castello come to mind. Maybe it is time for all of us researchers and investigative journalists to watch our backs more than ever.

THE WASHINGTON POST front page: NASA Discovers the Long-Sought “Planet X”
In their 1983 WASHINGTON POST report, they tried to conceal the identity of this dwarf star, captured within the outer bounds of our Sun’s gravitational force field. They claimed, “We Don’t Know What It Is!” However, earlier that same year, they emphatically declared that they knew exactly what it was that they were launching their Infrared Astronomical Satellite to find: They announced that they were seeking “Planet X.” NASA, we are not stupid. We know that earlier you announced your space search for “Planet X,” even though you later feigned ignorance when you found precisely what you had announced you were seeking.

N.A.S.A.’s I.R.A.S., they stated, was built and launched with the specific mission of sighting that infrared light-emitting brown dwarf star which Dr. Harrington and others called “Planet X.” Astronomers estimate brown dwarf stars to be as massive as one thousand Earth-masses, as a minimum estimation.

CRN®-MAY 10, 2013—I interviewed University Professor and expert on counter-terrorism and Homeland Security, Paddy Boylan. The topic, ISLAM: Defining the Enemy, the way it should be defined. No more wishy-washy politically-correct lingo. An amazing interview with a very knowledgeable man who knows Islam and the Qur-an very well.
Paddy Boylan is a very knowledgeable man when it comes to counter-terrorism and the way Islam thinks and operates. He even developed a Bachelors program in Homeland Security validating the need for this course of study in our country after 9/11.
To that effect, Boylan has worked closely with elements in higher education facilities and government to develop and implement a comprehensive Safety and Emergency Plan for Universities.
He is an expert on terrorism trends, threat analysis, open source research, presentations in understanding the threat we face today.
Boylan has trained and lectured around the country privately to organizations, the military and law enforcement agencies. He is also the founder of the Center for Strategic Analysis (CSA- http://c4sanalysis.org/ ) where he serves as the President and CEO.
Boylan holds a Master’s degree in the file of Crisis/Emergency/Disaster Management, and also a Master’s degree in Higher Education/Higher Education Administration.
Defining the Enemy
Who can we define the enemy better than Boylan? Few can.
ISLAM is not a religion of peace. Islam is not even a religion. It is a system. It is submission by definition. A totalitarian system on oppression and control without any regard toward human rights. George Orwell and all the New World Orderists would relish to have such a system brought upon the world. Maybe that is why they are financing and allowing it to thrive and infiltrate and seep through into western culture.
ISLAM permits atrocitites in the name of its Moon Goddess, Allah. Walid Shoebat makes it clear in this article. I am just quoting an article here. No need to take offense.
Quoting the heading ‘What ISLAM is NOT’ from the Stop the Islamization of the World website (http://www.siotw.org/modules/quran/) under its section on the Qur’an, it defines it perfectly. Boylan and I concur on this much more appropriate definition of Islam:
“Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.”—What Islam is Not, Stop the Islamization of the World
This video debate where radical islamist Anjem Choudary discusses Jabhat Al-Nusra’s pledge to Al-Qaeda. The debate makes clear that the CIA-sponsored Al Qaeda and al-Nusra fronts in Syria are being financed by the West with the true goal of a unifying the Ummah or One Islam. It serves as evidence that the terrorist are extending the Jihad at a global level. The globalists are financing the very enemy that wants to destroy Christianity and any other form of spiritual belief systems, be it Buddhist, Jewish or Hindu, Islam is intolerant.
A little insight and photographic proof of what these CIA Arab Spring fronts are bringin in Syiria is the killing of Syrian babies. (Warning>Graphic content, be advised.)
Multiculturalism and any form of tolerance toward Islam has to go out the window. This is what is bringing Europe and de Anglo-Saxon to its knees. Islamic law, Shariah, must never be allowed into our western society. It is urgent that countermeasures be taken at all levels of government. From Chile to Canada, this multifaceted jihad must be curtailed by strong legislations that disavowed it and reprove it.
Moreover, the Bible should be brought back to the pulpits and the schools. Ever since Hitler took it out during World War II, and it became a standard in the West, our so-called secular position on religious tolerance has brought only division and unholy ventures that has left us wandering as a minority and not a strong, God-fearing, Jesus-believing society.
It is time to stand up and not be ashamed to preach the Gospel of Salvation to all in our nations. It is time to rise for Christ Jesus and Occupy till He comes!
Urgent and constant prayers should be our exercise and focus as the battles for our very existence draw nigh.
From one Islamphobic to another, it is us that stand up and speak out that are making a difference in bringing awareness to the dumbfounded, mind-controlled and manipulated societies of the West. Time to Wake Up!
And no. I am not excusing what Israel has done to the region either. For God’s sake! Netanyahu just nuked Syria! No? Go here and here read up on the Depleted Uranium bombs and the death of tens of thousands not 55 as is being reported. War kills! Period! War is death and destruction! Who wins! Only one side, the Dark Side of course. But ultimately, the Light shall overcome the darkness when jesus comes and starts some serious and needed ‘soul-whooping’.
This will surely not be the last interview I have with Professor Boylan. We have much to learn about our common enemy and little time to do so.
Threats increasing. In just a week, 4 planes were at risk… See below.
Please expect an update on THE TERRORIST THREAT TIME-TICKING BOMB when I interview Reza Kahlili for a third time.
Two planes have been evacuated on arrival at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport due to what a spokesman called a “security concern.”A JetBlue flight from Long Beach, CA, and a regional Skywest jet from Phoenix were the planes involved. The flights arrived late Sunday afternoon, airport spokesman Perry Cooper said. Read More This story comes to us via […]
“Readers who argue that the terms “Nazism” and “Zionism” were not known in 1871 should know that the Illuminati *invented* both these movements. In addition, communism, as an ideology and as a coined name, originated in France before the French Revolution. In 1785, Restif coined the name, communism, and four years later the Revolution broke out. Restif and Babeuf, in turn, were influenced by Rousseau, as was the most infamous conspirator of them all: Adam Weishaupt.
Following are extracts of the letter, showing how Three World Wars have been planned for many generations.
“The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.”
Students of history will recognize that the political alliances of England on one side and Germany on the other, forged between 1871 and 1898 by Otto von Bismarck, co-conspirator of Albert Pike, were instrumental in bringing about the First World War.
“The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.”
After this Second World War, Communism was made strong enough to begin taking over weaker governments. In 1945, at the Potsdam Conference between Truman, Churchill, and Stalin, a large portion of Europe was simply handed over to Russia, and on the other side of the world, the aftermath of the war with Japan helped to sweep the tide of Communism into China.
“The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”
San Andreas Trailerfulfills destruction of HOOVER DAM and separation of California by a PLANET X-induced SUPER QUAKE.Watch the Trailer Here… The California Dreamin Choir is EPIC to inject FEAR into the masses.
Read my original my article on the matter below.
SQ-SELF QUARANTINE! AND SUPER QUAKE! I BET THAT SQ-* STEVE QUAYLE IS GOING TO SELL MORE OF HIS TRINKETS WITH THIS ONE…. SQ EVERYONE…
As for me and my family, we TRUST in Jesus Christ. HE HAS OUR SOULS and our SPIRITS…. We are allREADY SAVED.-…
Bring it on then!!!
ooohhh… the QUAYLITES AND NAGMANS are gonna sooo run with it!!!
On with the article I wrote in 2012…. boy… was I a FEAR-spreader like Quayle back then.
“This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea. Get to the mountains. Get to the hilltops. California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah. This is California. We are going into the sea!”
CRN®-APRIL 10 2012– 75 year-old Prophetic Dream foretells in detail how San Diego, Los Angeles, Baja California fall into the sea; California goes into the sea and Arizona, Nevada and Utah are affected by a gigantic earthquake. The dream speaks of smells of sulphur under the ground. Well, guess What? The 7.2° Easter Quake that shook Mexicali Baja California to its core was followed by a strong sulphuric smell coming our from under the houses of some residents. Hot steamy water was even reported coming out from under their kitchens.
The dream confirms also how the sand gives way. Well that is happening now in Baja California and is not being reported in order to not create panic. Just last week, the Mexican Federal Communications Secretariat confirmed that the Ensenada-Tijuana Scenic highway is sinking and it is just a matter of time until a massive 7 mile stretch sucumbs into the ocean. It is happening just as foretold by Joe Brandt in 1937.
This account of Joe Brandt, a Christian man who had recurring detailed dreams of a massive earthquake that hits and destroys California, is yet another confirmation of what Daisy, a wonderful Christian sister who lives in San Bernardino, confirmed to me in an exclusive interview on Feb 18 2012 on the Alexander Backman show.
Beware the coming Global Superquake. Please make preparations to endure this massive event… or not. This has got to be one of the best and detailed prophetic dreams that I have ever heard.
Joe Brandt Global Earthquake Dream from 1937
The man who wrote this was a personal friend of the publisher at the time. The article is given as he wrote it in 1937, in boyish handwriting. He had fallen from a horse at age 17 and for days he had a concussion. During this period of time a continuing dream came night after night. It was as though he were viewing a tremendous earthquake and inundation in California and other parts of the world. Joe Brandt had also written in a drowsy state through his days while recuperating in the hospital about positions of various faults, strata of rock, earth movements,-so much material that a geologist of many years would scarcely attempt such a work. The boy knew nothing of geology or the possibility of a coming earthquake. There are five-points to note which lift this dream/vision out of the realm of ordinary night-time dreaming, and the huge sheaf of geology data out of ordinary day-time writings, as follows:
The dream/vision took place in perfect continuity, night after night, for many nights, always picking up exactly where it left off. This is super-normal.
The viewer was projected at least 30 years ahead in time, seeing modes of dress for youth not faintly imagined in 1937 by anyone. This is super- normal.
Half-sized cars were seen-many of them, and in 1937 such cars were not familiar to the United States. He remarked about the odd shape, which could have been the Volkswagen, now so common in the United States. There are about three times as many VW’s in California as elsewhere in our country.
Super-highways are noted, which he had not seen in his trips to Los Angeles from his home in Fresno, California. (By the way, he saw Fresno wiped out in the catastrophe.) This is super-normal knowledge.
He wrote about geology he had never learned, nor at 17 had there been time to learn that much. He was given a vast knowledge of “faults” of which he was totally unaware. This is super-normal knowledge. When checked later with a graduate geologist, it was found to be factual. Note: absence of birds. Birds and animals flee an area just before earthquakes.
I woke up in the hospital room with a terrific headache- as if the whole world was revolving inside my brain. I remember, vaguely, the fall from my horse-Blackie. As I lay there, pictures began to form in my mind-pictures that moved with the speed of lightning-pictures that revolved-pictures that stood still. I seemed to be in another world. Whether it was the future, or whether it was some ancient land, I could not say.
Then slowly, like the silver screen of the “talkies”, but with color and smell and sound, I seemed to find myself in Los Angeles. It was Los Angeles-it was bigger, much bigger, and busses and odd shaped cars crowded the city streets. I thought about Hollywood Blvd., and I found myself, there, on Hollywood Blvd. Whether this is true, I don’t know, but there were a lot of guys about my age with beards and wearing, some of them, earrings. All the girls wore real short skirts… and they slouched along, moving like a dance. I wondered if I could talk to them, and I said “hello”, but they didn’t hear or see me. I decided that I would look as funny to them as they looked to me. I tried, for a while, that crazy kind of walk. I guess it is something you have to learn. I couldn’t do it. I noticed there was quietness about the air, a kind of stillness. Something else was missing, something that should be there.
At first, I couldn’t figure it out; I didn’t know what it was-then I did. THERE WERE NO BIRDS. I listened. I walked two blocks north or the Blvd…All houses…no birds. I wondered what had happened to them. Had they gone away? Where? Again, I could hear the stillness. I had never experienced anything like it. I listened…just the stillness.
Then, I knew something was going to happen. I wondered what year it was. It certainly was not 1937. I saw a newspaper on the corner with a picture of the president. It surely wasn’t Mr. Roosevelt. He was bigger, heavier, big ears. If it wasn’t 1937, I wondered what year it was. It looked like 1969…but I wasn’t sure. My eyes weren’t working just right.
Someone was coming…someone in 1937… It was that fat nurse ready to take my temperature. I woke up. Crazy dream.
(There are pages here about a similar dream occurring-finding himself in Los Angeles-although it was the next day (in 1937) it was the same day in Los Angeles, and the dream would continue where the last dream left off.)
My headache is worse. It is a wonder I didn’t get killed on that horse. I’ve had another crazy dream, back in Hollywood. Those people. Why do they dress like that I wonder? I found myself back on the Blvd. I was waiting for something to happen. Something BIG was going to happen and I was going to be there. I looked up at the clock down by that big theatre. It was 10 minutes to 4. Something BIG was going to happen. I walked down the street. In the concrete in front of a theatre they had names of stars. I recognized a few of them. The other names I had never heard. I was getting bored. I wanted to get back to the hospital in Fresno, and I wanted to stay there on the Blvd., even if nobody could see me. Those crazy kids. Why are they dressed like that? Maybe it is some big Halloween doings, but it don’t seem like Halloween. More like early spring.
There was that sound again. that LACK OF SOUND. STILLNESS, STILLNESS, STILLNESS. Don’t these people KNOW that the birds have gone somewhere? The QUITE IS GETTING BIGGER AND BIGGER. I KNOW IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN. Something is happening now!
It sure did. She woke me up, grinning and smiling, that fat nurse again. “It’s time for your milk, kiddo,” she says. Gosh, old woman of 30 acting like the cat’s pajamas. Next time maybe she’ll bring hot chocolate.
THE MOMENT OF THE HAPPENING
Where have I been? Where haven’t I been! I’ve been to the ends of the earth and back. I’ve been to the end of the world. There isn’t anything left. Not even Fresno, even though I’m lying here right this minute. If only my eyes would get a little clearer so I can write all this down. Nobody will believe me, anyway.
I’m going back to that last moment on the Blvd. Some sweet kid went past, dragging a little boy (twins, I guess) by each hand. Her skirt was up–well, pretty high–and she had a tired look. I thought for a minute I could ask her about the birds, what had happened to them, and then, I remembered she didn’t see me. Her hair was all frowzy, way out all over her head. A lot of them looked like that, but she looked so tired and like she was sorry about something. I guess she was sorry BEFORE it happened, because it surely did happen.
There was a funny smell. I don’t like it. A smell like sulphur, sulphuric acid, a smell like death. For a minute, I thought I was back in chem. (chemistry). When I looked around for the girl, she was gone. I wanted to find her for some reason. It was if I knew something was going to happen and I could stay with her, help her. She was gone, and I walked half a block, then saw the clock again. My eyes seemed glued on that clock. I couldn’t move. I just waited. It was FIVE MINUTES TO FOUR O’CLOCK ON A SUNNY AFTERNOON. I thought I would stand there looking at that clock forever waiting for the something to come.
Then, when it came, it was nothing. It was just nothing. It wasn’t nearly as hard as the earthquake we had two years ago. The ground shook, just an instant. People looked at each other, surprised. Then they laughed, I laughed too. So this was what I had been waiting for. This funny little shake. It meant nothing. I was relieved and I was disappointed. What had I been waiting for? I started back up the Blvd., moving my legs like those kids. How do they do it?
I never found out. I felt as if the ground wasn’t solid under me. I knew I was dreaming and yet I wasn’t dreaming. There was that smell again–coming like from the ocean. I was getting to the 5 and 10 (Newberry’s?) and I saw the look on the kids’ faces. Two of them were right in front of me, coming my way. Both with beards. One with earrings. One said: “let’s get out of this place. Let’s go back East.” He seemed scared. It was as if the sidewalks were trembling – but you couldn’t seem to see them. Not with your eyes you couldn’t. An old lady had a dog, a little white dog, and she stopped and looked scared, and grabbed him in her arms and said,” Let’s go home, Frou, Frou. Mamma is going to take you home.” That poor old lady, hanging on to her dog. I got scared. Real scared.
I remembered the girl. She was way down the block, probably. I started to run. I ran and ran, and the ground kept trembling. But I couldn’t see it. I couldn’t feel it. But I knew it was trembling. Everybody looked scared. They looked terrible. One young lady just sit down on the sidewalk all doubled up. She kept saying “earthquake, it’s THE earthquake.” over and over. But I couldn’t see that anything was different.
Then, when it came. How it came. Like nothing in God’s world. Like nothing. It was the scream of a siren, long and low, or the scream of a woman I heard having a baby when I was a kid. It was awful. It was as if something- some monster- was PUSHING UP THE SIDEWALKS. You felt it long before you saw it, as if the sidewalks wouldn’t hold anymore. I looked out at the cars. They were honking but not scared. They just kept moving. They didn’t seem to know yet that anything was happening. Then, that white car, that baby half-sized one, came sprawling from the inside lane right against the curb. The girl who was driving just sat there. She sat there with her eyes staring, as if she couldn’t move, but I could hear her. She whimpered. Like a little girl. She made funny noises. I watched her, thinking of the other girl.
I said that it was a dream and I would wake up.. But I didn’t wake up. But I didn’t wake up. The shaking had started again, but this time different. It was a nice shaking, like a cradle being rocked for a minute, and then I saw the middle of the Blvd. seemed to be breaking in two. The concrete looked as if it were being pushed straight up by some giant shovel. it. It was breaking in two. That is why the girl’s car went out of control.. AND THEN A LOUD SOUND AGAIN, LIKE I’VE NEVER HEARD BEFORE…THEN HUNDREDS OF SOUNDS… ALL KINDS OF SOUNDS… children, and women and those crazy guys with earrings. They were all moving, it seemed, some of them above the sidewalk. I can’t describe it. They were LIFTED UP. And the waters kept oozing…oozing. The cries. It was awful. I woke up. I never want to have that dream again.
It came again. Like the first time which was a preview and all I could remember was that it was the end of the world. I was right back there–all that crying. Right in the middle of it. My eardrums felt as if they were going to burst. Noise everywhere. People falling down, some of them bad hurt. Pieces of buildings, chips, flying in the air. One hit me hard on the side of the face, but I didn’t seem to feel it.
I wanted only to wake up, to get away from this place. It had been fun in the beginning, the first dream, when I kind of knew I was going to dream the end of the world or something. This was terrible. There were older people in the cars. Most of the kids were in the street. But those old guys were yelling bloody murder, as if anybody could help them. Nobody could help them. Nobody could help them.
It was then that I felt myself lifted up. Maybe I had died. I don’t know. But I was over the city. It was tilting toward the ocean-like tilting a picnic table. The buildings were holding, better than you could believe. They were holding. They were holding. The people saw they were holding and they tried to cling to them or get inside. It was fantastic. Like a building had a will of its own. Everything else breaking around them, and they were holding, holding. I was up over them-looking down. I started to root for them. Hold that line, I said. Hold that line. Hold that line. I wanted to cheer, to shout, to scream. If the buildings held, those buildings on the Blvd., maybe the girl-the girl with the two kids-maybe she could get inside.
It looked that way for a long time, maybe three minutes, and three minutes was like forever. Everybody was trying to get inside. They were going to hold. You knew they were going to hold, even if the waters kept coming up. Only they didn’t. I’ve never imagined what it would be like for a building to die. A building dies just like a person. It gives way; some of the bigger ones did just that. They began to crumble, like an old man with palsy, who couldn’t take it anymore. They crumble right down to nothing. And the little ones screamed like mad-over and above the roar of the people. They were mad about dying. But buildings die. I couldn’t look anymore at the people. I kept wanting to get higher. I kept willing myself to go higher.
Then I seemed to be out of it all, but I could see. I seemed to be up on Big Bear near San Bernardino, but the funny thing is that I could see everywhere. I knew what was happening. The earth seemed to start to tremble again. I could feel it even though I was up high. This time it lasted maybe twelve seconds, and it was gentle. You couldn’t believe anything so gentle could cause so much damage. But then I saw the streets of Los Angeles-and everything between the San Bernardino Mountains and L.A. It was all tilting toward the ocean, houses everything that was left. I could see the big lanes-dozens of big lanes still loaded with cars-five lanes in one place, and all the cars sliding the same way.
Now the ocean was coming in, moving like a huge snake across the land. I wondered how long it was, and I could see the clock, even though I wasn’t there on the Blvd… It was 4:29. It had been half an hour. I was glad I couldn’t hear the crying any more. But I could see everything. I could see everything.
THE OTHER CITIES
Then, like looking at a huge map of the world, I could see what was happening on the land and with people. San Francisco was feeling it, but she was not in any way like Hollywood or Los Angeles. I seemed to see it was the GARLOCK FAULT, not just the SAN ANDREAS that was rocking San Francisco. It was moving just like that earthquake movie with Jeanette McDonald and Gable. I could see all those mountains coming together-the Sierra Nevada, and the San Andreas and Garlock.
I knew what was going to happen to San Francisco-it was going to turn over, because of Garlock. It would turn upside down. It went quickly, because of the twisting, I guess. It seemed much faster than Hollywood, but then I wasn’t exactly there. I was a long, long way off.
I shut my eyes for a long time-I guess ten minutes-and when I opened them I saw Grand Canyon, that great big gap was closing in, and Boulder Dam was being pushed from underneath. And then, Nevada, and on up to Reno. Way down south, way down Baja, California, Mexico too. It looked like some volcano down there was erupting, along with everything else.
I saw the map of South America, especially Colombia. Another volcano-eruption-shaking violently. Venezuela seemed to be having some king of volcanic activity. Away off in the distance, I could see Japan, on a Fault, too. It was so far off-not easy to see, because I was still on Big Bear Mountain, but Japan started to go into the sea. I couldn’t tell time, then, and the people looked like dolls, far away. I couldn’t hear the screaming, but I could see the surprised look on their faces. They looked so surprised. They were all like dolls. It was so far away I could hardly see it. In a minute or two it seemed over. Everybody was gone. There was nobody left.
I didn’t know time now. I couldn’t see a clock. I tried to see the island of Hawaii. I could just see huge tidal waves…beating against it. The people on the streets were getting wet, and they were scared. But I didn’t see anybody going into the sea. I seemed way around the globe. More flooding. Is the world going to be drenched? Constantinople. Black Sea rising. Suez Canal, for some reason seemed to be drying up. SICILY. She doesn’t hold. I could see map. Mt Etna is shacking. A lot of this area seemed to go, but it seemed to be earlier or later.
I wasn’t sure of time, now. ENGLAND…..huge floods-but no tidal waves. Water, water everywhere, but no one going into the sea. People were frightened and crying. Some places they fell in the streets on their knees and started to pray for the world. I didn’t know the English were emotional. Ireland, Scotland-all kinds of churches were crowded-it seemed night and day. People were carrying candles and everybody was crying for California, Nevada, parts of Colorado- maybe all of it, even Utah.
Everybody was crying-most of them didn’t even know anybody in California, Nevada, Utah, but they were crying as if they were blood kin. Like one family. Like it happened to them. NEW YORK was coming into view- she was still there, nothing had happened, yet water level was way up. Here, things were different. People were running in the streets yelling-“end of world”. Kids ran into restaurants and ate everything in sight. I saw a shoe store with all the shoes gone in about five minutes. Fifth Avenue- everybody running. Some radio blasting from a loud speaker that in a few minutes, power might be shut off. They must control themselves. Five girls were running like mad toward the Y.W.C.A. that place on Lexington or somewhere. They ran like they were scared to death. BUT NOTHING WAS HAPPENING IN NEW YORK. I saw an old lady with garbage cans, filling them with water. Everybody seemed scared to death. Some people looked dazed. The streets seemed filled with loud speakers. It wasn’t daylight. It was night. I saw, like the next day, and everything was topsy turvy. Loud speakers again about fuel tanks broken in areas-shortage of oil. People seemed to be looting markets.
Oregon, Washington, The Dakotas, Missouri, Minnesota, Canada
I saw a lot of places that seemed safe, and people were not scared. Especially the rural areas. Here everything was almost as if nothing had happened. People seemed headed to these places some on foot, some in cars (that still had fuel). I heard-or somehow I knew- that somewhere in the Atlantic land had come up. A lot of land. I was getting awful tired. I wanted to wake up I wanted to go back to the girl-to know where she was-she and those two kids. I found myself back in Hollywood-and it was still 4:29. I wasn’t up on Big Bear then- I was perched over Hollywood. I was just there. It seemed perfectly natural in my dream.
T.V., Radio, Ham Operators
I could hear now. I could hear, someplace, a radio station blasting out-telling people not to panic. They were dying in the streets. There were picture stations with movies-some right in Hollywood-these were carrying on, with all the shaking. One fellow (in the picture (TV) station) was a little short guy who should have been scared to death. But he wasn’t. He kept shouting and reading instructions. Something about helicopters or planes would go over-some kind of planes-but I knew they couldn’t.
Things were happening in the atmosphere. The waves were rushing up now. Waves. Such waves. Nightmare waves. Then, I saw again, Boulder Dam, going down…pushing together, pushing together breaking apart-No, Grand Canyon was pushing together, and Boulder Dam was breaking apart. It was still daylight. All these radio stations went off at the same time-Boulder Dam had broken. I wondered how everybody would know about it- people back East. That was when I saw the “ham radio operators”. I saw them in the oddest places, as if I were right there with them. Like the little guy with glasses. They kept sounding the alarm. One kept saying: “This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea.. Get to the high places. Get to the mountains. All states west-this is California. We are going to the – We are going to the” – I thought he was going to say” sea”. But I could see him. He was inland, but the waters had come in. His hand was still clinging to the table; he was trying to get up, so that once again he could say: “This is California we are going into the sea. This is California we are going into the sea.” I seemed to hear this, over and over, for what seemed hours-just those words.
They kept it up until the last minute-all of them-calling out “Get to the Mountains-This is California.-We are going into the sea.” I woke up. It didn’t seem as if I had been dreaming. I have never been so tired. For a minute or two, I thought it had happened. I wondered about two things. I hadn’t seen all what happened to Fresno (his home) and I hadn’t found out what happened to that girl. I’ve been thinking about it all morning. I’m going home tomorrow. It was just a dream. It was nothing more.
Nobody in the future on Hollywood Blvd. is going to be wearing earrings-and those beards. Nothing like that is ever going to happen. That girl was so real to me-that girl with those two kids. It won’t ever happen-but if it did, how could I tell her (maybe she isn’t even born yet) to move away from California when she has her twins-and she can’t be on the Blvd. that day. She was so real!
The other thing-those ham operators-hanging on like that-over and over-saying the same thing: “This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea. Get to the mountains. Get to the hilltops. California, Nevada Colorado, Arizona, Utah. This is California. We are going into the sea.” I guess I’ll hear that for days.
