President Select Trump

In very few moments of our lives are we so aware that history is being made before our very eyes. Last night was one of those moments. Everyone around you is watching the same thing, talking about the same thing as you are. 25 years from now we will all probably remember exactly where we were when it was announced Donald Trump would be 45th president of the USA.


I always tell my kids “fair” really means “my way”. (meme created by

As the world began to realize that Donald Trump was going to take the US election we all reacted with emotions across the board. The energy level was so high. The contrast and duality is rarely so clear as we saw yesterday evening. No matter how you feel about Donald Trump being the next President of the USA and the problems he will inherit, just pause for a minute and reflect on the uniqueness of this moment in time.

This unique moment of reality

How people can be so divided on their perceptions of reality is open to each of our favorite theories. Today we have predictions being made on Trump from the messianic to satanic. Death threats against Donald Trump have begun and violent mobs and riots are happening now all across the USA.

cw1umsgxeaaprdnHow is this possible? It is the opinion of many including this author, that the elite owners of the major mainstream media networks and social media platforms conspired to program the American public and that programming basically FAILED for most of the USA. Most of the USA was watching events with their eyes wide open. They were not listening to their friends on facebook or watching “The View” or paying any mind to any of CNNs polls or FOX news’ polls or NBCs polls or anyone else’s polls. The elite lost and they lost hard. The sum total of all the manipulation of the public’s perception of reality by facebook, google, and every main stream media outlet was an epic failure and America called it for what it was.

The elites lost control long before last night, as exhibited below in this recent video.

Obama lost control a long time ago

The brainwashed of 2016 were mostly found in the dystopian mega-city democratic liberal strongholds such as Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Hollywood and unfortunately my hometown, Honolulu. These people for the most part still do not realize they have been lied to. They really need to put down their iPhones and begin to take extreme measures, like possibly dropping out cold turkey from facebook for a year. People need to do their own research and see how the duality, manipulation and programming has been changing the way they think.

An alternative universe

I don’t really think this girl is demon possessed, but the video went viral a few nights ago. It is a good example of the kind of debates I try to avoid with people and why I QUIT facebook.

Infowars reporter Owen Shroyer ran into a group of Hillary supporters at a party in Austin Texas. The Hillary supporters had no arguments for their candidate and resorted to swearing, character assassination attacks, growling and snarling. Not to mention lying through their teeth (like Hillary herself) in order to try and win the debate.

Is this how Americans discuss and debate issues nowadays? It’s no wonder they lost if their only tactic was to try and intimidate the rest of America and curse, snarl and yell louder than the other guy.

Small town America


The Amish saved Pennsylvania and America, thank you for the 20 electoral votes!

Small town Americans were saying loudly that their way of life was dying and they didn’t like it. People were beaten down and hurting across America and they were going to vote to get their jobs back.

The mainstream and social media giants ignored this and made the claim that what rural America was really saying is that blacks and gay people are finally getting equal rights and that “white racist America” doesn’t like it. This is incredulous. I listened to several Trump speeches and never once heard him say anything homophobic or racist. This is what my evidence showed me.

The enemy of my enemy is who I voted for on Nov 8th

Did racists and homophobes really just take over the United States or did something else just happen? Here’s a warning we had several weeks ago and it came from a very unlikely source.

Michael Moore nails it two weeks before the election

Michael Moore seemed to be one of the few liberals who saw through the media manipulation and programming and understood and warned the world weeks ago that Trump would win and win BIG. (F-BOMB warning use headphones around kids or watch later)

Great video, Michael Moore just nails it.

President Trump, Answer to prayer?


Pence and Trump praying?

This is an older photo taken of Trump and Pence and posted on Mike Bauer’s facebook page back in July. Were they really praying or just laughing off a joke? I don’t know but during the last few weeks I have seen many tough, hard nosed men on their knees praying for America. Alex Jones, Bill Still, myself, others, we were all on our faces and on our knees prostrate and prone before God asking him to save us from the Clintons and the globalists. Did God answer our prayer? Well I think the answer is an obvious NO DUH but this is where it also gets weird!

Donald Trump “for the house of David”?


Donald Trump’s acceptance speech after winning the election on November 8, 2016. (Breaking Israel News)

I wish we could just have, “Donald Trump, New York businessman who won’t get fooled again” but I am just not getting that vibe.

Christians especially need to be alert not to be seduced by the mystical and the corrupt. You already have the pure Word of God. YES, God answered our prayers but folks, we need to stay in our bibles and remember the warnings of Jesus, Paul, Peter, John and Jude. There will be false prophets among us.

So many people seemingly want an Apocalypse Now and it seems like people across the world are hell bent to make it so. Besides the liberal hit pieces on TV and print today and the riots springing up like weeds tonight, we have all sorts of other crazies coming out of the woodwork today.


Rabbi Yosef Berger. (Courtesy David’s Tomb)

Breaking Israel News wrote today that Kabbalistic Rabbis such as Rabbi Yosef Berger are claiming Donald Trump is connected to the coming Messiah.

“When taking the gematria into account, it was clear that Trump had a spiritual edge. As Rabbi Berger pointed out, the gematria for Donald Trump in Hebrew (דונלד טראמפ) is 424, which is equal to the gematria of “Messiah for the House of David” (משיח בן דוד). The Ben Ish Chai, an authority on Jewish law and master kabbalist who lived in Baghdad 150 years ago, interpreted the number 212 as a difficult time for Israel before the Final Redemption. Trump’s gematria is twice that, signifying an ongoing Messiah process.

Just so we are clear. Gematria and Kabbalism is Jewish mysticism similar to witchcraft or magick. These men are false prophets. If I were Donald Trump I would steer very far and wide from those who would like to make him something more than he is.

I can’t imagine that Pope Francis won’t be too far behind the Kabbalists of Israel however it was the Muslims that were the first to openly congratulate Trump.

Royal Ass Kissers

saudiprince-trumpSaudi Prince Alaweed Bin Talal tweeted Donald Trump yesterday.

This is the same Royal Saudi hypocrite whose family and government has been funding the Clinton Foundation and is responsible for untold bloodshed across the planet. This Saudi royal has no class and a severe lack of protocol. A royal does not congratulate a US President with a tweet.

@realDonaldTrump please stay the HELL away from these accursed butchers. Do not meddle in their harlotry. I spent a year in Saudi Arabia and I vowed the only way I would ever willingly go back to Arabia would be to evacuate my fellow Americans when the place finally goes to hell. Donald Trump seems to know the Saudis are behind all the murdering and killing of Jews and Christians all around the world. Leave the Saudis to themselves PLEASE.

The rest of the Middle East

The first world leader to properly congratulate Donald Trump was actually Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. Egyptians are smart and honest people and they know all too well that Hillary Clinton is their enemy and an enemy of all people in the Middle East.

Just read either of these articles here and here. America wake up. The rest of the world is mostly happy Trump is going to hopefully stop the killing and stop the funding of terror across the world.

I have said it before and i’ll say it again. We are being lied to by our media. The rest of the world does not think the way we think they think. Watch any Arab or Asian or African or Russian news station. You get a much different perspective. These people are for the most part, VERY VERY happy today.

The Pathological attraction to power

2012-06-10-16-15-44One of the first big challenges for Donald Trump besides just staying alive (Secret Service should help with that) is going to be to recognize and avoid the insane and the psychopathic. They are everywhere throughout Washington DC and I imagine he already knows this.

I have at least one friend who is certain Trump is one of them (psycopathic).

Donald trump has promised to “drain the swamp” so it does appear he knows how to at least recognize the pathological. Takes one to know one? Probably a good bet.

I would like to make one request of our new President Elect, please drain the swamp in Hawaii too!!! This is the most corrupt of all 50 States in our dear union.

Whats really going on then?

cw0adxkwqaasdmvA meme is being circulated that shows Donald Trump and Ronald Reagan together with a quote appearing to be an endorsement from the grave from former President Ronald Reagan.

While the meme’s authenticity cannot be verified, it is a sample of the cult following that is sure to form around Donald Trump now that he is “President Elect” Trump.

Other apparent predictions are surfacing that appear to have predicted a Trump presidency from at least 1987.

President Trump predicted?

The Simpsons cartoon seems to have predicted a Trump presidency back in 2000. Several internet videos exist of this episode, “Bart to the Future” where Lisa Simpson becomes the first “straight” woman president. Or try this one “Ten times the Simpsons predicted the future”


very creepy if you ask me

Richard and Pat Nixon endorsed Trump?

cw1e7gzxuaavhdThis one actually seems TRUE! Richard and Pat Nixon predicted a Donald trump presidential win almost 30 years ago in 1987.

There are those saying that US Presidents are not elected but selected and the Freemasonic history of our great country is truly undisputable.

I will leave this rabbit hole alone for now but it appears like it will also grow legs as the days turn into weeks and months and (hopefully) years.

I was very hard on Barack Obama and equally as hard on both former Bush’s and Bill Clinton as well.

Donald Trump probably knows better than anyone the power of the internet and the alternative media which helped get him elected.

All we really want as American citizens is to pursue life liberty and happiness. Donald Trump may truly be the first actually ELECTED and NOT SELECTED president we have had in our entire Generation. I would like to think “we the people” actually won this time. He is the first president I have ever gotten behind in my entire adult life. I hope he keeps all of his promises and stays out of the back seat of convertible limousines and also stay the heck away from any grassy knolls and dark movie theaters if you get my drift.

American Uprising

Daniel Greenfield has written an article that kind of picks up where I am leaving off here. American Uprising

People need to chill out. What is the worst that could happen? When the Soviet Union collapsed LIFE WENT ON and Russia is still here. Maybe we have our own “brexit states” or a “calexit” or whatever I don’t know but LIFE WILL GO ON. People need to chill.

Keep on praying for America, we also still have many enemies both foreign and domestic. Pray for the peace of our cities and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

I will keep an eye on Donald Trump. To my friends who dislike him still, just chill out and give the guy a chance. New Yorkers are actually great people. I think he will do a great job.


much aloha


BREXIT The Movie: the case for Britain to LEAVE the EU.

If you are anything like me and had no idea what BREXIT was or what any of this meant, this is THE movie to watch.

BREXIT THE MOVIE spells out the danger of staying part of the EU. Is it safe to give a remote government beyond our control the power to make laws? Is it safe to tie ourselves to countries which are close to financial ruin, drifting towards scary political extremism, and suffering long-term, self-inflicted economic decline?

BREXIT THE MOVIE shows a side of the EU they don’t want us to see: the sprawling self-serving bureaucracy, the political cynicism, the lack of accountability, the perks, the waste, the cronyism, the corruption.

BREXIT THE MOVIE cuts through the patronizing intellectualism of the noble, higher goals of ‘Project Europe’, to reveal the self-interestedness of the political-bureaucratic class which runs and benefits from the EU.

BREXIT THE MOVIE highlights the danger of becoming a prisoner in an insular, backward-looking Fortress Europe. And it explores the exciting opportunities that open up to us when we look beyond the narrow confines of the EU.

BREXIT THE MOVIE looks to the future, arguing forcefully and persuasively that it is safer and wiser to live in a country which is free, independent, self-governing, confident and global.

Christian Dominionists, the Road to Holocaust and Brussels Belgium Terror Attacks

Rick Green, partner with David Barton’s Wallbuilders recently came through Honolulu and spoke at a few churches.

They are a very entertaining and dynamic duo. Both of their names are on the Wallbuilders websites and podcasts so what one does, the other is a partner or an accomplice to. Typically Barton does the heavy teaching and book writing while Rick Green defends David Barton from critics. This is why I like to refer to Green as the consigliere. It is tongue in cheek and I mean no offense by it. I am not saying Barton and Green are in in the mafia. It is the way I prefer to describe their relationship.

I have been a subscriber to their podcast for a while. I have friends who really like them although I can’t say I am a real fan. They just lose me with their associations and arguments that just make me very uncomfortable. I will explain why.

Christian Dominionism

In a nutshell David Barton is a Christian Dominionist. There is no need for me to do a complete study on them or what they teach. Hal Lindsey has been a highly respected teacher since the 1970 book “The Late Great Planet Earth”. Hal Lindsey is one of the last of a generation of heavy duty bible teachers which includes Walter Martin and other SOLID and MORE NOBLE teachers in accordance with the book of Acts 17:11.

Hal broke it all down in the 1989 book called The Road to Holocaust. Hal has not changed his tune much since then. A recent video is up on where he breaks down Christian Dominionism again for us.

Dominionism, also known as “Kingdom Now” or “New Apostolic Reformation” (NAR) is theologically all over the map but what they all seem to agree on is this. They all want to implement a conservative “Christian” government that will rule over the rest of society at any cost and are willing to get in bed with anyone else who agrees with their new and improved, baseball, hotdog, easy to swallow frappuccino version of history, religion and politics.

Hal Lindsey and I agree, Dominionism is NOT what the Bible teaches. According to Hal Lindseys book, Dominionism eventually leads to anti-semitism which will eventually bring you face to face with heresy. It is in fact just as Hal Lindsey warned, “The Road to Holocaust”.

Before I switch gears, the NAR or Kingdom Now pied piper of our day is Lance Wallinau with his “7 mountains mandate”. Barton and Green seem to do a real good job keeping their noses clean from any direct relationships with the heretics HOWEVER.

Right Wing Watch has an audio clip of David Barton and his consigliere Rick Green AGREEING and ADVOCATING with the 7 mountains heresy taught by Lance Wallnau. The link to the audio can be found in this article here, David Barton Advocates Seven Mountains Dominionism. It appears Right Wing Watch has the evidence. If the evidence is wrong, Barton or Green are free to send me their answer directly. I would be more than happy to post their rebuttal to this otherwise clear audio.


I cant make it any easier to understand. Most of our churches teach the “End Times” will involve an anti-Christ, tribulations, a rapture, and a second coming of Jesus Christ.

Wallnau, and the Kingdom Now camp, not only reject traditional pre-milennialism, (not a heresy itself I know that) they go much further and teach that Christians need to take dominion over their areas of influence while “shaking what is happening on earth and take dominion”. They eventually go out and attack others who teach otherwise. Lance Wallinau attacks Hal Lindsey in this example. This is not what my church has taught me so it’s a bit of a surprise when I see fellow christians, pastors and many others eating this stuff up. The bible I have read and the pastors I have known have taught me to 1) study the Word of God, 2) preach the Gospel, 3) fellowship and 4) pray daily. Not any of the rest of this nonsense.

To add insult to injury now I have been personally attacked for daring to bring this up with a trusted friend. I have been accused of “slander” and not doing MY RESEARCH and have even been threatened that I am speaking out against anointed “men of God”? Are you kidding me? What is this? The Church of Scientology?

I don’t mind if we have friendships with people that believe differently than us. Please go right ahead and continue to have weird friends. I do it! Some of my best friends are into many beliefs other than traditional Christianity. I love these friends of mine, but I will not let them teach me or my children their false doctrines.


These guys lose me almost right away with their silly beliefs about our founding fathers but it gets much worse. David Barton oversees Keep the Promise PAC which is supporting Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential bid into the many multiple tens of millions of dollars. Through his PAC, David Barton sponsors HUGE rallys for Ted Cruz where he appears with the devout Mormon and former Fox News blow hard Glen Beck. As a matter of fact, just a few days ago, Glen Beck announced that Ted Cruz is Fulfillment of White Horse Mormon Prophecy’. Before I continue, allow that to sink in for just a minute.

I really want to keep this short so ill just quickly point out one last video, that according to the title, “David Barton wants to disciple you”… along with his friend, the high prince of false and apostate teachers, the blasphemous health and wealth pope of prosperity Kenneth Copeland.

How many Kenneth Copeland videos do I have to watch to know this is wrong? I’ll give you the answer the number is ZERO. Go ahead and accuse me of a guilt by association fallacy or throwing the baby out with the bathwater but I don’t care. This stuff will not fly in the persecuted church or the underground church. It is for gullible Americans, nothing more.

This proves at a minimum a severe lack of discernment from David Barton. Maybe someone else can find the stomach to dig through the trash and find a gem or two or a smoking gun in these Kenneth Copeland videos but I am going to move along.

These guys are at a minimum just a “little bit off” and I don’t want them or others like them (General Jerry Boykin etc cough cough) teaching me, my pastor, my wife, my friends or my kids.


September 11th 2001 became forever remembered as “911″. The London Subway attacks will always be remembered as “7/7″. Well it is still too early to know for sure but I have to wonder if the Brussels attacks will be remembered as “322″.


Maelbeck Station bombed at 9:11 AM on 3/22

(3/23 AM Update) No other mainstream news sources seems to have caught the 322 oddity. I guess I am fringe. Charisma Magazine has asked some interesting questions.

I am not one of the pre-loaded “false flag” crowd. I don’t jump to conclusions like that but the date and timing of this event does not appear to be random. As I have said many times, I am an evidence guy. Show me your evidence first. Terrorists are perfectly capable of blowing up all sorts of places including airports and subway stations, and they like using dates and times as their signatures. I am not sure when ISIS Jihadists adopted 322 as their signature but apparently it is the date they chose to attack the EU Headquarters.

Here are a few other observations I made today.


Me at the EU Building just a few blocks from Maelbeek subway station in 2011, click for full size!

I have walked down the Rue in Brussels, Belgium where the Maelbeek Subway station is that was bombed today. I knew exactly where it was. Just outside of the Maelbeek train station is the EU building. The geography is significant. This would be tantamount to bombing a subway station in Washington DC one block away from the White House or Congress.

Next, Hal Lindsey and Dave Hunt have always taught that bible prophecy would be centered around a “Revived Roman Empire” European anti christ person that would arise from inside these very buildings. I went “street view” on Google Earth and showed my wife the statue in front of the Berlaymont building, (EU Headquarters) just to the East of the Maelbeek Train station that was bombed.


Nod to Dave Hunt, “A Woman Rides the Beast”, one block away from Maelbeek Subway station bombing

1 Woman riding the beast statue, Check!

Now this is where it gets weird. ISIS theologians teach that their Mahdi will come when “the armies of Rome” attack them in Dabiq, Syria. Are ISIS jihadists attempting to rope or snare the armies of Rome into a war? Many before me have already proposed they must do exactly this or their theology crumbles.

Is what we are witnessing a bit of a competition here? The Muslims that want to be the antichrist have attacked the Romans that want to be the antichrist? Sounds like a warm up to Daniel Chapter 12 if you ask me.

Who will be the real rider on the white horse? I’ll tell you one thing it is not going to be Ted Cruz I don’t care what Glen Beck scribbles on his chalkboard!

How does it all tie together? I don’t think any of it really does except possibly in the grander picture of good versus evil. The fact of the matter and what the evidence is showing today is simply the furthest thing from what the dominionists believe! I’ll throw my hat in with Hal Lindsey on this one.

To wrap it up, and I know I have been all over the place tonight. Do you want to avoid dominionists and emergent church doctrines from creeping into our churches? Would you like to be safe from falling for bogus teachers and bringing dirty politics into our sacred sanctuaries?

I would like to suggest this. How about we do what the church did in the book of Acts. 1) continue steadfastly in the apostles doctrine 2) fellowship with other believers 3) breaking of bread 4) Prayer and if I may I add #5) sharing our faith.

We don’t need anything else.

Pastors if you say “I just teach the Word of God” then mean it. We don’t want to be entertained by our churches. We want to be fed and taught and have a place of sanctuary.

Pastor Chuck Smith nailed it in one of his final warnings to the CCOF (private pastors only email list) and this document has been circulated somewhat publicly since.

2 Peter 2 says But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

When I read  2 Peter it says they SHALL BE and SHALL BRING not might be or might bring or possibly bring, or bring somewhere else to the church down the road, but not bring to us. It says SHALL BRING. Does everyone see the seriousness of this warning?

Be careful teachers. Be careful Christians. This is not a game. The time is short.

Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.

We just need Jesus. We don’t need distractions and entertainment. Our world is lost. Politics is NOT the answer to our problems. Jesus is. We should be showing our friends and family the way, not trying to get them to think our church “is cool” or relevant. Jesus is all we need.

Try sharing Ken Copeland or David Bartons books and videos with anyone in the persecuted or underground church. They will just give you blank stares. An excellent video has come out from behind the islamic curtain and the underground persecuted church. I recommend watching this one to everyone. Grab a beverage of your choice and prepare yourself for a little perspective.

That’s about it for tonight.

Paris Terror Attacks and the Eagles of Death Metal

(UPDATED towards end of post)

Sundays are typically my day of rest (when possible), and my catch up day for the weekly news. Today, I expected the standard fare from my regular news venues and couldn’t help but notice the name of the band that was playing during the Paris theater shooting on Friday night.

The “Eagles of Death Metal”? Really? Now I am a child of the 80′s so that immediately caught my attention. I never heard of them before but evidently they are pretty big. They seem to have no problem selling out large venues. They have been interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine and performed on Jay Leno and Conan O Brian before.

So here I am on my “day off” attempting to catch up on the “war on terror” news and instead I am watching, in it’s entirety, a previously recorded LIVE “Eagles of Death Metal” concert.

Click below and meet the band!

Lead singer Jesse “The Devil” Hughes is an ordained minister with a very “intimidating and problematic” personality according to another interview

Click on this image for a hyperlink below taking you to a google search of all their albums and art work. This artwork on this album is supposed to be a play on the old Loverboy Get Lucky album with “fingers crossed behind my back” but with devil horns instead. Their other album covers are a bit more racy.

Eagles of Death Metal

Eagles of Death Metal Albums

They have a song called “speaking in tongues” where at one point the singer mockingly goes off into incomprehensible babble, and another song called “I really want to be in L.A.” which starts out with “I came to L.A. to make rock ‘n’ roll, Along the way I had to sell my soul“. Well there you have it gang. I am very curious to know what song was playing when the shooting began. I cannot identify what song they are playing here, but this is a short video of the moments when the shooting began just posted on warleaks. My heart breaks for the members of this band and whatever dark things they have seen. I mourn for all the dead, together with all of France and Europe.

These guys are the exact kind of edgy, in your face American rockers I grew up with in my youth. Front man Jesse Hughes claims that Roger Waters from Pink Floyd asked him to boycott Israel and I cheer Jesse Hughes’ response. Some of the things he says makes me think he might be a bit confused, possibly a backslidden Christian believer. He said in one interview, “The theory of evolution is for fools who believe in “magical talking monkeys.”

Well, I prefer to stick with facts so this is as far as I go. They are very talented musicians and I am glad they survived the Paris show.

UPDATE — I have figured out exactly what song they are playing during the shootings. it is called “kiss the devil”.  I also have determined they are doing a guitar solo that takes place after the first 1:20 seconds of this song. Here is a video of the exact same song played the night before in Glasgow. I am posting a linked image of their setlist and the lyrics that had been sung up until the moment of the massacre. Take note of the name of the last song on the setlist which was “cut by terrorist attacks and shootings“.

“Kiss the devil” lyrics kissthedevil

Who’ll love the devil?…
Who’ll sing his song?…
Who will love the devil and his song?…
I’ll love the devil!…
I’ll sing his song!…
I will love the devil and his song!…
Who’ll love the devil?…
Who’ll kiss his tongue?…
Who will kiss the devil on his tongue?…
I’ll love the devil!…
I’ll kiss his tongue!…
I will kiss the devil on his tongue!…


So with the Eagles of Death Metal (EODM) being so popular, it is a certainty that their fans in the sold out crowd knew and sang along with the lyrics. The guitar solo in the video is at about 1:22 so these lyrics above has already been sung. What a sad thing to realize the last thing many of those EODM fans in that concert said before being blown away by ISIS terrorists was “I will kiss the devil on his tongue”.

May God have mercy on their souls.

Please feel free to comment. Much Aloha!

ICBM Launch last night off Los Angeles – VIDEO

First the headline on Drudge Report yesterday warned, “US Military Closing Airspace around LAX” or something dramatic. I can’t remember his exact words but next time i’ll try to remember to screenshot his headline.

I guess So Cal residents were “freaking out” last night as they were about to be Nuked or invaded by Aliens or suffer some other Hollywood Blockbuster worthy event as CNN reports here. Reports flooded twitter, facebook and YouTube that there was a big bright blue UFO exploding over Los Angeles last night like in this video below.

PROFANITY ALERT Turn down your volume if you have kiddies around or just prefer not to hear the swearing. While these Los Angelinos insist “it had to be a UFO” there is another explanation. (the “explosion” starts at about 1:09)

Here is the the Navy’s official statement on the event from the Third Fleet’s Cmdr. Ryan Perry via Channel 7, an NBC affiliate in San Diego:

“Navy Strategic Systems Programs conducted scheduled Trident II (D5) missile test flight at sea from USS Kentucky, an Ohio Class SSBN, in the Pacific Test Range off the coast of Southern California. The tests were part of a scheduled, ongoing system evaluation test. Launches are conducted on a frequent, recurring basis to ensure the continued reliability of the system. Each test activity provides valuable information about our systems, thus contributing to assurance in our capabilities.

The missile was not armed. Strategic Systems Programs does not routinely announce missile testing. Information regarding the test launch of Trident II (D5) missiles is classified before the launch.”


Artist conception of Ohio Class Sub launching an ICBM

The US Navy explanation seems to check out. Other bloggers have screenshots of last night which show the entire area between Pt Mugu and Santa Cruz Island offshore blocked off by the US Navy and the USS Independence Combat Littoral Ship patrolling the area. The USS Kentucky was underwater and the launch of the ICBM probably would have been much more impressive from the bridge of the Independence than any YouTube video.

Much Aloha
