Now that we have the space and time to argue about weather and how many Top Gun trailers are enough, we can include pole swapping. The Brunhes-Matuyama reversal was 780,000 years ago. The Laschamp event was around 41,000 years ago lasting 250 years.…
Those of you who still use compasses know what I am talking about.
And I don't mean those Made in India Brunton knockoffs.…
I missed out on the Brunton 125th anniversary transit....complete with beer opener. But I do have their more functional mapping products.…
I did a lot of compass work in the Yukon cutting the boundary. The insanity of magnetic declination moving east or west along a straight line boundary was real. So we literally cut a straight line in the forest so pilots could see the border.
Now I know you are going to say "GPS bro" but GPS signals are not controlled by an individual, are not accurate (16 feet to one meter on a good day), requires batteries and clear sky removing much of the thinking and scale essential to bush survival.…
The answer is to use both and understand the limitations and benefits of both. But never forget....pole flipping, solar bursts, false readings, magnetic variance, wandering poles and common sense. A lesson for life.
oh heck we were just talking about this. They call it the "Adams Transitional Geomagnetic Event."…

A few weeks ago I sat down with Irish citizen Sam Najjair in Libya to discuss what it's like to have a crew of Erik Prince's mercenaries hired to kill you. Anyone here seen John Bolton? ©RYP, all rights reserved.
When Arab dictators are dumb enough to pay $80 million to Americans like Haftar and $50 million to Prince to kill people it doesn't really matter who you kill. As long as the check clears and the team can di di mau on a RHiB before the shooting starts.…
There is so much more for the media to unpack on how Libya got to where it is today. And how corrupt and incompetent the former administration was. In a few weeks Jared Kushner and his dirty money crew will be front and center. This story is not going away.

Media interest in Shitler's Post-Esper "malarky" is growing. November 10, 2020 - January 20, 2021. I nearby label this dark window of thievery as the "Forty Days of Fuckery." It appears that DoD is shutting down some of the Dallas contracts already. MBz & MBs getting shaded.
You might remember there was a secret June 8, 2020 meeting in London at Cheyne Place where Erik Prince pitched his "Air America" and an 11 country "Find Fix and Finish" operation from Mauritania to Mozambique. Then the November Dallas meeting to deploy into various contracts.
Tata's visit with the Saudi's was supposedly to knock loose Arab cash to fund certain entities and sign a "Defense Cooperation Plan." which allegedly knocked a bunch of cash loose for Kenya, the Moz operation and ? Lets hope the DoD is asking.
