At Death and Taxes, we’ve taken note of the HAARP conspiracy theories before. HAARP, or High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, based in Alaska, has been blamed for Arkansas’ dead birds in 2011 as well as for the earthquake in Haiti (by Hugo Chavez no less). Researchers at HAARP conduct experimental research into the ionosphere for high atmospheric technological applications including missile detection, radio transmission, etc. The research is naturally great fodder for the conspiracy theorist. And now the right-wing conspiracy theorists, most notably at Alex Jones’ InfoWars, are suggesting that President Obama used HAARP to create Hurricane Sandy, thus insuring a 2012 election victory.
At last, Obama can now establish his eternal socialist Muslim empire and conjure the Antichrist from the pits of hell!
It’s a great conspiracy theory, playing right into the collective science fictional imaginations of Americans who believe the government has the technological capacity for everything from time travel to astral projection. Such ideas are great for entertainment, but have little credibility outside of the national and international tin foil cap communities.
This HAARP/Hurricane Sandy/2012 Election conspiracy theory might be one of the grandest ever imagined. It’s truly breathtaking in scope and grandeur.
To think that Obama could commandeer HAARP in such a way is one thing, but to then postulate that he could and would use its imaginary powers to such an evil genius extent could only have been hatched by the fringe-dwelling conservatives who idolize Alex Jones.
InfoWars writer Kurt Nimmo attempts to cloak the site’s own theorizing by citing the solid research of others:
Sandy’s timing has many people speculating that the storm’s path is an engineered event. On Thursday,HaarpStatus.com reported elevated levels of HAARP frequency in the ionosphere above the East Coast of the United States. HaarpStatus describes itself as “a real-time sensor network from over 28 sensors placed in rural areas across the United States…
If the research conducted by HaarpStatus.com is correct, the government (or factions within) are manipulating the ionosphere and driving Sandy into the East Coast to create chaos and Katrina-like post storm conditions that will have significant political ramifications during the November 6th election.
TheIntelHub cites the very same website, writing: “The readings, in and around the New England area, are literally off the charts and lend credence to other claims that Hurricane Sandy is possibly being engineered to cause massive destruction.”
Yes: Obama will do anything to be re-elected.
