Super Shemitah Behind September Global Financial Upheaval

Reblogged from

The Super Shemitah, Mayan Calendar and Kali Yuga Converge in 2015/2016

Super Shemitah Reflects Ever-tightening Spiral
of Mayan Calendrics and the Kali Yuga Climax

September 13, 2015 aka Elul 29, 5775
Marks the End of the Shemitah Year

70th Biblical Shemitah Jubilee
begins on September 25th

Super Shemitah

70th Biblical Shemitah Jubilee is the
world’s first and only Super Shemitah

Virtually every resident of planet Earth is now aware that humankind is now experiencing the end of days.  The signs and omens are everywhere, and becoming more dramatic by the month.  Never before have so many people been inundated by so much information and stimuli, all of which strongly conveys the message:

“The planetary civilization is now
passing through the eye of the needle .” 

It is no coincidence that various calendars of the major religious traditions of the world are on parallel tracks, each reaching a similar number of years since their inception.  For example the Mayan Long Count Calendar terminates after 5125 years.  The exact end date may have been on December 21, 2012 or it might be in 2016 or even 2023.  Only by knowing the exact start date can the final date be accurately identified.
Likewise, the Hindu religion observes the death of Lord Krishna as the beginning date of the Kali Yuga dating back to 3110 or 3113 B.C.E.  The widely used calendar of India, which measures the passage of time within the Kali Yuga, closely aligns with the Mayan Calendar.  The entire Kali Yuga includes both a dawn and twilight period, each being as many as 500 years in length.  That means that the present Kali Yuga has already seen well over 5125 years pass; and, that it can literally end today.
The Super Shemitah = 70th Biblical Shemitah Jubilee
The Hebrew calendar is another ancient system of timekeeping which aligns with both the Mayan and Hindu.  The current Gregorian year of 2015 is actually the year 5775 according to the Hebrew calendar.  Within the Judaic tradition there are cycles within cycles which signify different milestones and meaningful events.  One of those cycles concerns theBiblical Shemitah Jubilee, which will be observed this September.  This particular “Year of Jubilee” is the 70th and therefore it is known as the Super Shemitah.
The Super Shemitah only occurs once approximately every 3500 years because the 70th Jubilee represents 70 times 49 year Shemitah cycles which equals 3430.  The “Year of Jubilee” is always the celebration during the 50th year following 7 consecutive Shemitah cycles (7 x 7 = 49).  The Jubilee is also the first year of the subsequent Shemitah cycle, which is why the previous calculation uses 49 instead of 50, the very definition of a Jubilee.
The key point is that the end of the current Shemitah year and beginning of the Super Shemitah represent the closing of an era and unprecedented epochal transition.  It will seem as though the entire planetary civilization is passing through the eye of the needle.  It is no accident of calendrical synchronicity that the Mayan Long Count Calendar was said to have ended on December 21, 2012.  Neither is it by chance that the present race of humanity is now living through the final days of the twilight period of the Kali Yuga.
This alignment between three of the most dominant ancient calendars used by the current race of humanity is extremely significant.  Both the Christian and Muslim religions also have well-defined end-time narratives which dovetail quite neatly with each other, as they do with the Judaic, Hindu and Mayan traditions.  The Christian Book of Revelation is particularly descriptive of these times as are those eschatological prophecies within Islam. Even the Buddhist scriptures express a similar expectations as follows:
The prophecy of the arrival of Maitreya refers to a time in the future when the dharma will have been forgotten* by most on the terrestrial world. This prophecy is found in the canonical literature of all major schools of Buddhism.
(Source: Maitreya)  
The whole world is now awaiting with guarded apprehension and anxious anticipation the coming of September 2015. No other window of time — which includes both September and October — has ever been the subject of so many mundane predictions and religious prophecies. There are very good reasons for this particular period being fraught with unprecedented changes and unparalleled events. The historical record of the Shemitah year correlates directly with extraordinary financial breakdown and economic collapse on a global scale. This undeniable and now predictable pattern is what has established September of 2015 as the beginning of the final end of the Global Economic & Financial System. Hence, the upcoming Super Shemitah, also known as the 70th Biblical Shemitah Jubilee, promises to be the most highly consequential of the modern era.
Just how definitive is this Shemitah year correlation with humongous financial and economic events? 
First, let’s look at the last Shemitah year — 2007/2008.  The real estate market crash began in the very beginning of the Shemitah year in September of 2007.  That yearlong slow-motion collapse then set up the stock market crash that officially occurred on Black Monday, September 15 of 2008 with the declared bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the largest in history.  The stock market then proceeded to crash repeatedly until the end of October. There’s a perfect one-to-one correlation for the doubters.
Next up, let’s take a close look at the Shemitah year just prior to 2008.  That would be 2001.  First the dotcom bubble burst at the start of the Shemitah year which began in 2000. That set the year up for all of the major telecom scandals, ENRON bankruptcy and Arthur Anderson collapse.  That Shemitah year ended, of course, with 9/11 which also happened to shut down the New York Stock Exchange for a week, the first time in NYSE history. Then, when it reopened, it immediately crashed setting the pace for economic doldrums for the immediate future.  The entire airline industry took a major hit, as did New York City and Washington D.C.
In both of the previous examples the main events occurred right around the end date of the Shemitah year — Elul 29. This is the temporal fulcrum around which the Shemitah phenomenon transpires.  Going back every 7 years there are similar happenings, although not nearly as calamitous as 2001 and 2008.  Because those in power have still not responded appropriately to the root causes of the defining issues associated with the last two Shemitah years, the present one will be a true year of reckoning.
Point of fact: “Kicking the can down the road” will eventually exacerbate all the self-reinforcing problems to the extent that they will really blow up … BIG TIME!  That’s exactly where we are right now.  There ain’t no more road to kick the can down, and if you don’t believe it, click here.  By the way, the U.S. National Debt is now $18, 357, 854, 249, 564.oo and counting … very quickly!
The Ever-tightening Spiral of the Mayan Calendar and Universal Creation Cycle
More than any other ancient system of timekeeping, the Mayan calendar quite elegantly portrays both the acceleration of time and expansion of consciousness.  It especially illustrates the exponential intensification of the outworking of evolutionary energies throughout the entire planetary civilization.
As evidence of this calendrical dynamic, witness the many exceptional technological advancements which mankind has achieved over the past 100 years.  Then consider how far human civilizations had advanced technologically over the previous 6000 years.  That’s not to say that technological progress is such a great measure of human evolution; rather, that it is just a single metric by which development can be evaluated on the great spiral of time.
What becomes obvious from this 6000 year retrospective analysis is that the current pace of change throughout the earth realm has become meteoric and chaotic, unbridled and overwhelming.  As a matter of fact, the whole human race is becoming overwhelmed.  In some spheres of life, such as information technology (IT), the explosion of technological advancements has literally catapulted IT to point much further along on the evolutionary spiral. Ditto that for AI (Artificial Intelligence) and GI (Genetic Engineering).  In other words:
“When scientific knowledge and applied technology reach a critical level of advancement, without being informed by spiritual truths and guided by moral authority, the planetary civilization will relinquish its destiny to continue as it is.”
~ Cosmic Convergence Research Group
The real downside of this societal development is that humanity has categorically proven itself to be incapable of assimilating the many profound and impactive changes in the right way.  Hence, the world has been effectively split into two separate populations — the old-fashioned analogs and the revolutionary digitals.  This sole development in the way that human beings now approach life has fractured society along many lines.  The multiple areas of division are both deep and broad, and growing wider by the day.
The critical point is that the evolutionary spiral has now tightened to the point where the existing societal structures and institutional arrangements are reaching their breaking points. In other words the systems are no longer working and have simply outlived their usefulness. The Global Economic & Financial System is a perfect example of this slow-motion breakdown and inevitable disintegration.
The financial architecture, which was constructed early in the last century, is wholly inadequate because it has not been sufficiently upgraded since the beginning of the 3rd millennium.  Likewise, the economic systems are sitting on the same fundamentally flawed foundations that were laid during the same era.  With the predominance of corrupt, crony, corporate capitalism worldwide, the process of disintegration is speeding up by the day. The systemic stresses are now unbearable as new institutional pressures pile on by the day.
The whole world is now watching the final stages of the “snake of predatory capitalism eating itself“.  This is why the phenomenon of the Super Shemitah is so powerful and so relevant.  The typical manifestations of Shemitah energies perfectly reflect the earth-shaking events which are now taking place every day.  However, those same energies are greatly increased during a “Year of Jubilee”, especially when it is the Super Shemitah.
Super Shemitah: The Perfect Storm Blows Through Global Bubble Economy
In fact no other phenomenon will better ensure that the fatal flaws and myriad shortcomings of GE&FS (Global Economic & Financial System) will be exposed and eradicated than the Super Shemitah.  The entire corporate model (aka the Government Corporate Complex) is now under serious assault, as is the current incarnation of Anglo-American predatory capitalism.  The world community of nations is now witnessing the glaring effects of the inherent defects of Western-style ‘free market’ capitalism.  Yes, it is a free market for the 1% to enrich themselves at the expense of the 99%.
Corporate fascism throughout the USA has in fact greatly manifested under both the Obama and Bush Administrations.  Both presidents were used to advance a clandestine corporate agenda whereby profits are privatized and losses are socialized.  This ongoing “transfer of wealth” dynamic is responsible for the class war that has been simmering below the surface of American life since the Occupy Movement first emerged.
The battleground has now been set up. There has always been a fierce battle between “the Takers and the Caretakers” of the planet.  That same war has been significantly expanded to include the haves and the have nots.  The vast majority of humankind has been inexorably moved into the “have not” category due to a fastidiously planned scheme to redistribute the wealth of the world.  The final stage of that multi-century strategy will be taking place during the Super Shemitah year.

As evidence, we post a screenshot from today’s Drudge Report indicating the Dow Jones decrease of 530 points.  That drop represents the single biggest one-day selloff since 2008.
Here’s an LA Times article: Stock market suffers worst one-day drop since 2008 that is one of the few MSM reports.   And this is only the very beginning of the end of a longstanding war.  East and West are now engaged in an epoch-ending resource war and geopolitical conflict, currency war and commodity conflict that will surely shake the world to its foundations.
“Debt Default and Dollar Meltdown,
Derivative Explosion and Deflation Implosion
are Timed According to a Controlling Calendar”[1]
For those who are uninitiated in these highly consequential matters, this unfolding War of the Titans is the only way the system will be sufficiently destroyed so that a new paradigm can emerge.  How the current GE&FS actually self-destructs has already been planned out. The same plan has been utilized over centuries of engineered booms and busts, each one coordinated and executed by the same ruling cabal.  The following essay well explains the historical background and current context.
Why will the coming Super Shemitah unfold with so much finality?
It is what has occurred contrary to the biblical injunctions of the Shemitah over the past 50 years, as well as what has not occurred, that will determine the severity of the Super Shemitah.  In other words, because periodic debt forgiveness for the most financially oppressed has not occurred, the spirit of the Shemitah has been violated time and again.  In fact the taxpayers’ money was instead given to the Too Big To Fail banks.  This injustice represents a profound transgression against those who are in the greatest need.
One need look no further than the economically devastated country of Greece.  That bankrupt nation is now being further destroyed financially by the European Union led by the German banking establishment.  The EU, IMF and ECB have all conspired to strip the Greek people of all their national treasures and public assets.  Much more importantly, these soulless supranational institutions are stealing Greece’s national sovereignty, as they deprive the citizens of their personal sovereignty.
This same highly destructive dynamic is playing itself out in the Ukraine, as well as in many other countries throughout the Middle East and Africa.  It is the disease of predatory capitalism and it has become a cancer upon the nations and blight upon their lands.  Hence, the spirit of the Shemitah has not been observed or respected.  In fact it has been profoundly disrespected.  Consequently, the upcoming Super Shemitah year is guaranteed to be both paradigm-busting in many spheres of life, as well as earth-shattering in others.
Because the 7-year Shemitah cycle always ends with a major drama(s) of some sort, from this point forward, anything goes anytime. We have already seen the Rod of God weaponry inhumanly used on the port city of Tianjin as a result of China’s purposeful and rapid currency devaluation.  Likewise, there have been unceasing acts of economic terrorism and financial sabotage perpetrated against nations large and small.  The Anglo-American Axis is doing everything possible to maintain their ascendant position on the global geopolitical battlefield.
*The Anglo-American Axis is represented, first and foremost, by the major English-speaking countries of the world: USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Israel. The European member nations of NATO, such as Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands are also closely aligned with the AAA as are all the Scandinavian countries. So are the Asian Pacific Rim nations of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines.  Pakistan, Kuwait, Jordan, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, and Qatar also owe their allegiance to the AAA, although some of these may be changing. The World Shadow Government is a secret, supranational organization which completely controls the Anglo-American Axis, as well as the European Union, NATO, among many other institutional entities which constitute the Global Control Matrix.

The Climax of the Kali Yuga Overrides And Supersedes Everything Else
It’s true that the unfoldment of the Kali Yuga denouement will dictate the actual timing of the upcoming Super Shemitah events.  The Kali Yuga, also known as the Iron Age, is the darkest and densest of the four major ages which also include the Golden, Silver and Bronze Ages.  The Kali Yuga is also known as the Age of Quarrel and Age of Conflict; hence, much of human history over the past 5000 plus years has been about wars between empires, kingdoms, nations, and states.  Even cities and villages, tribes and clans have had their skirmishes.  As the population explosion took place, regional wars and world wars became a fact of life.
Once the USA became the military arm of the New World Order[2]during the last century, highly advanced weaponry and destructive technology have been utilized within theaters of war around the globe with devastating effect.  The sanctity of life is now systematically trampled.  And people everywhere have been relentlessly desensitized to the ongoing horrors of war.  Welcome to the age of war-watching on TV screens and computer monitor, smartphones and laptops.
The Kali Yuga is particularly distinguished as an era when “dharma will have been forgotten*.  Dharma is a Sanskrit word meaning righteousness, justice and truth.  In the Eastern traditions the Kali Yuga is known as a time when the fourth leg of the sacred bull is broken.  The 4th leg represents truth which, when broken, signifies that falsehood will prevail across the land.  Truth during modern times is so completely shredded that the truth-doers are routinely killed, imprisoned and committed.  Likewise, the truth-writers are demonized and ridiculed as the truth-speakers are marginalized and ostracized.
Conversely, those who speak falsehood do so with such conviction that they hold the masses in thrall.  Convincing liars now exercise great power over government and corporations alike.  The multi-decade Confidence Game that Wall Street has played on the rest of the nation, as well as the world-at-large, is a perfect example of the power of deception during the unsurpassed Kali Yuga.  Truly, we live in an age when the vast majority of people are literally addicted to deception.
This addiction to deception has been purposefully exploited by those at the peak of the GE&FS pyramid of power. They know exactly how to manipulate the market gamblers into betting the whole enchilada on highly speculative and fraudulent ‘investment’ vehicles. They have engineered every single market rise since the inception of the NYSE, as they are manufacturing the current plunge in global markets today, especially China the current financial trigger point. After fabricating the greatest and longest sucker’s rally in history, they will now bring the whole house (read: gambling casino) down.
This is how the the snake of predatory capitalism always self-destructs. Having created the Consumer Society that is now hellbent on consuming everything in sight, it has passed through a critical threshold in 2015. Everyone — virtually — wants a much bigger piece of the pie. The internet has given them extraordinary tools to grab it. In this computerized era of trading there are various techniques and tools of an emerging trade that have empowered the previously via flash trading, frequency trading, naked short selling, derivative market abuse and a whole host of other market tactics and strategies.
This particular predicament, along with many other dubious practices in daily throughout the GE&FS, has made it extremely tedious to efficiently manage all the new market chaos and unpredictability. Hence, the power-players at the very top are getting out and shutting the global betting parlor down. In their race to the bottom, they are stealing everything in sight — pensions and 401(k)s, IRAs and Keoghs, stocks and bonds, gold and silver deposits, insurance and annuity policies, trusts and estates, savings and checking accounts, etc. However, it is the multi-year theft of tax revenue via successive implementations of the Quantitative Easing ‘monetary policy’ that allowed then to fill their coffers with ill-gotten gain.
Nonetheless, as the preceding pic graphically illustrates, the incorrigible thieves at the very top will eventually turn on each other. When that process begins in earnest, the snake shown above will literally be eating its own head. Yes, that is precisely how corrupt predatory capitalism always terminates itself. The world will now watch the unparalleled self-destruction of the “Modern Temple of the Moneychangers” … in living color … and in broad daylight. After all, the Goddess Kali will not be denied her sacrificial offerings. But who is it, exactly, that is serving up the heads of so many of the rich and powerful on the golden platter?!
The critical understanding to have about the Kali Yuga is that, like the end of the Mayan Calendar, there is a dramatic intensification of these dark energies, low vibrations and negative frequencies. The societal downward trajectory perfectly parallels the outworking of the Shemitah finale. In other words, just as it is always the darkest before the dawn, the exceedingly powerful forces of the Super Shemitah guarantees that the GE&FS will be dealt with accordingly. The essay that follows provides graphic detail of how the end game will play out.
Constellation of Major Luminary Events and Astrological Happenings from 2014 to 2016 Augur a Period of Revolution and HUGE Changes 
Let’s start with the fact that Saturn has been crashing through Scorpio during much of this pre-revolutionary period.  In fact Saturn is getting ready to leave Scorpio for good in the middle of September.  What is noteworthy here is that the real fireworks often occur at the very end of this usually quite difficult and challenging transit.  Hence, all of Western civilization can expect truly cataclysmic events to occur from now (August 21th) until the end of October.
There are also the September eclipses to contend with.  Talk about throwing fuel on the fire, or rather conflagration.  September will not only see a solar eclipse on the very last day of the Shemitah year — Elul 29 — this coming September 13th, it will also see a full lunar eclipse on September 28th.  That particular eclipse completes a rare tetrad which has been occurring since the Spring of 2014. The financial and economic, military and geopolitical power centers of the world (located on the U.S. Eastern seaboard & Western Europe) will be blackened out by that eclipse as shown below.
Then there is the unrivaled Year of the Fire Monkey.  Everything that occurs in September and October of 2015 is merely a preparation for the temporal overlap which occurs between the Super Shemitah and the Year of the Fire Monkey.  What is quite significant here is that these two blockbusters are both occurring while Pluto is crashing through Capricorn (“Pluto in Capricorn destroys that which is decadent in the establishment”).  Here is how the potential unfoldment of this exceptionally combustible scenario has been previously described on this site:
This piece of the End Times puzzle is of paramount importance. Again, because of the center stage that the USA currently occupies in world affairs, its evolving and predominant astrological dynamics weigh heavily on nations large and small. Chinese astrology tells us that the USA was born in the Year of the Fire Monkey on July 4, 1776. This birth date also indicates that Pluto was transiting through Capricorn during the revolutionary period of the 1770s. Everyone knows the rest of the story about the unprecedented American Revolution.
The coincidence of these two mutually reinforcing astrological events only occurs once every 245 years. The obvious deduction is that the United States of America is getting ready to experience the 2nd American Revolution. Only this time the people are revolting against an extremely oppressive U.S. Federal Government. Governmental and political, economic and financial tyranny have been manifesting on a daily basis. The citizenry has never been so justifiably rebellious in almost 250 years.
Clearly, the powerful energies associated with the Fire Monkey encourage exactly the same kind of revolutionary fervor that we see developing throughout American society today. Aggressive and assertive, courageous and daring, the Fire Monkey knows no fear when his show begins. Just as those who served in George Washington’s army went up against great odds to defeat the ‘invincible’ British Empire. The political and financial establishment simply has no idea what it’s facing in the form of the enraged and determined Fire Monkey.[1]
Lastly, it should be noted that something quite awesome took place in the heavenly firmament this past July.  The results of that celestial tête-à-tête will be felt throughout the entire Super Shemitah and beyond.  The following essay well describes the sheer enormity and profundity of that rare and highly consequential event.
The Super Shemitah has such a high degree of both kinetic energy and latent power that it will be easily distinguished from all of those other Jubilees that have come before. The current events that are evolving and devolving across the planetary landscape are now many and varied. They are occurring at warp speed and, at times, seemingly within a time warp. This radical acceleration of time and the Shemitah’s multifarious mundane manifestations are a direct reflection of the final stage of the Mayan Long Count Calendar also known as the Universal Creation Cycle.
Nevertheless, it is important to understand that the future is never really carved in stone, as many would like to think. More importantly, this particular Shemitah is the very first one which was known in advance by the greatest number of people worldwide. This sole development was made possible only by the now ubiquitous internet.  The efficient dissemination of this vital information has enlightened millions across the planet about the historic ending of the current Shemitah year on September 13th.  It is always on that final day when the debts are released and community-wide indebtedness was forgiven … … … one way or another.
That so many know about the coming grand finale has provided an unparalleled opportunity to shape the manifold outcomes.  Therefore, we now have before us a Shemitah year, the ending of which can be altered like no other in recorded history. Similarly, as the planetary civilization faces an unprecedented Super Shemitah, that, too, can be responded to in a manner that will greatly mitigate the most severe consequences and difficult challenges.
Above all, it’s crucial to understand that the Shemitah year is one that is known for “the release of God’s Blessings”.  Whether those blessings seem positive or negative, they remain untainted forms of divine grace.  Even the darkest of clouds can have a silver lining. That is perhaps the best way to understand the Super Shemitah.
So, while the planetary civilization will likely experience a modern-day version of Noah’s Flood, when the sun does finally come out, things will be fundamentally different.  And that is a good thing … a very good thing!
Author’s Note
September of 2015 will surely set the stage for The Greatest Show On Earth — EVER! The main take-away for all concerned is that it behooves everyone to simply watch the Super Shemitah as a show.  By orienting ourselves as detached witnesses, we are better able to respond in the moment to whatever requires our attention.  Because the evolutionary spiral of this final Universal Creation Cycle of the Mayan Calendar is inexorably tightening toward a type of zero point, time will speed up and events will intensify.
In light of these daunting eventualities, it is necessary for each individual to actively cultivate peace of mind.  Only by methodically creating the right frame of mind will each person be able to play their proper roles during this final act of the Kali Yuga.  We can only sustain peak performance throughout the Super Shemitah by functioning with yogic dispassion and detachment.  None of us knows exactly how or when all of this is going to end; we just know that the current (dis)order can only go on so much longer, yes?

Catastrophic Political, Economic, and Ecologic Changes Prompt Uncontrollable Immigration Surges

Conspiracy theorists (yes, we wear this Progressive/Marxist propaganda label proudly) consider all sides of arguments. As such, in the following article, find theories about Jade Helm 15 - the acknowledged governmental military exercise in which various foreign troops and domestic military troops train for what appears to be a "war" on the domestic front - and surmises that the catalyst for potential military intervention range from economic strife, to regionalized and long-term droughts, to the more generalized paranoia about "war threats" of other countries. Imaginary government-birthed terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda and ISIS and ISIL provide the vehicles with which the American government, for example, performs its ritual false flag events, many of which result in civilian casualties, but which frequently have no victims whatsoever - i.e. the Sandy Hook event. These false flag events provide opportunities for military operational practice exercises, as well as opportunities for the big six propaganda lamestream media companies to practice the ritual manipulation of the mass population by the media.

  A Hawk’s Eye View of Climate Change

April 24, at the Defense, National Security, and Climate Change Symposium in Washington, D.C., Brigadier General Stephen Cheney stepped up to the podium to discuss "conflict and climate change." Although Cheney is CEO of the American Security Project think tank, he identifies first as a retired Marine who likes to talk about "war fighting." That's fitting for a gathering that revolved around the "war on climate change"—a phrase used by journalist Cyril Mychalejko to describe the tendency to fit the world's coming climatological upheavals into a "national security framework."
Denialism still holds some sway in Congress, with seven GOP senators expressing outrage in May that FEMA asked states to plan for climate change, but among the military and defense technology elites gathered at the symposium, no time was wasted on debating the science. Instead, the Obama administration's warning in February that the warming of the planet is "an urgent and growing threat to our national security" set the agenda.
Much of the talk revolved around beefing up military infrastructure at home and abroad to be resistant to harsher climates. The army has embarked on a "Net Zero" initiative to make its U.S. bases water-and energy-independent through green technology, and it is conducting a review to assess the vulnerability of its 7,000-some overseas bases to climate change.
However, it didn't take long for Cheney, like many speakers at the twoday event, to zero in on migration. "We know for a fact that [climate change] is already driving internal and cross-border migration," Cheney said to his audience of government officials—heavy on the Department of Defense—and industry reps from military contractors such as Lockheed Martin and Booz Allen Hamilton.
That's true: Scientists estimate that in Bangladesh, the "ground zero" of global warming, rising sea levels could displace 15 million people by 2050.Oxford University's Norman Myers has projected that there could be as many as 200 million "climate refugees" by mid-century, though other researchers have argued that this number is inflated.
It's not just that climate change displaces people through floods, storms and rising sea levels; it also displaces them through scarcity of food and water, and by the conflicts that are in turn sparked by scarcity and migration. Sociologist Christian Parenti calls this "collision" of political, economic and ecological disasters the "catastrophic convergence."
Cheney's symposium presentation could have been billed as a PowerPoint tour of the world's catastrophic convergences. The desertification in the borderlands between Chad and Nigeria "has caused a lot of migration," Cheney said, and the terror organization Boko Haram "is simply taking advantage of that."
"One of the important drivers of strife," he noted, is "high prices and drought." A drought of "unparalleled length and severity" in Syria in the mid- 2000s, he explained, led to the mass internal migration of 1.5 million people from rural to urban areas, such as Damascus, "where they had no jobs, no food—that's what started and fomented the civil war." Now, Syrian refugees are flooding into Europe.
Currently, international law does not grant refugee status to those driven from their homes by disasters or climate change. Jane McAdam, an expert on refugee law at the University of New South Wales in Sydney told Bloomberg News in March that there is "little political will among governments to create new categories of people requiring protection." She noted that a 2011 effort by the UN refugee agency to craft a global framework for handling climate change and disaster-driven displacement went nowhere. However, some see a hopeful legal precedent in a 2014 case in which New Zealand granted residency to a refugee family from the island nation of Tuvalu, which is being swallowed by rising seas.
Many at the Defense, National Security & Climate Change Symposium showed sympathy for those whose massive displacement seems inevitable. However, for the most part, this climate refugee upsurge was presented as one national security menace, among many, to be managed.
The Department of Homeland Security's Climate Action Plan, in effect since 2013, acknowledges that it may be necessary to prepare U.S. borders for "frequent, short-term, disaster-driven migration." The plan anticipates increased population movements, "both legal and illegal, across the U.S. border," because of "severe droughts and tropical storms," particularly in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. The ongoing drought in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, for example, caused massive crop failures this year, likely adding to the influx of migrants already heading for the United States to escape extreme violence and poverty.
In the post-9/11 era, the Mexican border has been a place where three key U.S. foreign policy initiatives have converged: the war on drugs, the war on terror and the war on immigrants. To those a fourth can be added: the war on climate refugees.
Is that a camera in your cactus? 
For companies like Northrop Grumman and General Dynamics Mission Systems attending the ninth annual Border Security Expo in Phoenix in April, that war on climate refugees spells a profitable business opportunity. The expo offered a dizzying look at our sprawling border-security industry.
More than 100 vendors filled a crowded exhibition hall in Phoenix with gadgets and displays that look like science fiction. Technologies range from miniature drones to motion sensors to mounted machine guns to spherical robots (originally designed by NASA to explore the planet Mars). This is where Homeland Security high brass meets private industry, and where a developing government-industry nexus envisions the future of the U.S. borderlands.
What looks like a pile of rocks on one table is actually a surveillance camera. And rocks are just a small sample of what the engineering company Gans & Pugh Associates can create from fiberglass to disguise surveillance equipment.
"[A] log, all kinds of things. You name it. We basically need a sample or a picture … and you tell us what you want to put in it," said the company's vendor. He declined to name a specific price, saying it ranges depending on the order size.
TimberSpy's specialty is the surveillance-camera tree stump, perfect for patrolling the deforested "Montana border" against encroaching Canadians. At the Expo, TimberSpy employee Kurt Ludwigsen told Fox10 local news that two of their tree stump models are large enough for agents to hide inside.
Eyesight Surveillance has manufactured wireless cameras and motion sensors that can be concealed in, for example, one of Arizona's majestic saguaro cacti. "We just had some Border Patrol guys through here looking at this stuff say, 'Why don't we have this?' " said Eyesight's vendor.
No panels focused on climate change, but there were many references to increases in migration. Former Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner David Aguilar told an audience of industry representatives during a panel, "Don't forget to look at what's happening tomorrow," citing the possibility of "imminent" and "dramatic" cross-border traffic.
Later, in the keynote speech, Mark Borkowski, CBP's assistant commissioner and chief acquisition executive, told the audience of industry reps that the agency is "interested in [their] ideas on how to innovate."
Those innovations will add to what is already the most massive border enforcement apparatus in U.S. history. Never before have there been so many hundreds of miles of walls and barriers and concentrated surveillance technologies on the U.S.-Mexico border. Never before have so many U.S. Border Patrol agents policed that border: Their ranks have swelled from 3,500 in the early 1990s to more than 18,000 today. During the past decade, the combined annual U.S. budgets for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and CBP have increased from $9.5 billion ($11.5 billion in today's dollars) in 2005 to more than $18 billion in 2015. The fiscal year 2015 budget request includes an increase of $90 million to upgrade remote and video surveillance programs. All of this spells a windfall for companies like Lockheed Martin and Boeing, which have received tens of millions of dollars in border-security contracts.
With denialism still ruling the day in Congress, the words "climate change" don't appear anywhere in the FY2015 budget request for CBP or ICE, but it appears that at least some parts of the federal government are taking measures to prepare for our rapidly changing weather patterns. Unfortunately, those preparations are most likely to benefit the likes of Boeing—not the millions worldwide who are most vulnerable.
