“Carmageddon” may in fact be the official game-plan for the dreaded California earthquake infamously known as “The Big One”. With Los Angeles freeways scheduled to be overflowing parking lots on Monday, October 1, 2012, it appears that a man-made disaster of Hollywood movie proportions involving millions of cars, freeways, bridges, explosives and demolitions may be planned.
“We see this as being a disaster – only it’s a planned disaster.” Posie Carpenter, Chief Administrative Officer of UCLA Medical Center
The term “Carmageddon” was originally derived from the unprecedented 53-hour shutdown of the I-405 freeway in Los Angeles, California, during the weekend of July 15, 2011. The first-ever complete closure of a southern California freeway was part of the Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project which was unparalleled and completely unnecessary. California has been a U.S. state since September 9, 1850, and until July of 2011, no such construction or traffic related closure had ever occurred.
Prior to closing the freeway, Los Angeles radio DJs and television reporters simultaneously began referring to the freeway closure as “Carmageddon”, parodying the death, destruction and mayhem synonymous with the word Armageddon. The on-air media personalities acted in concert by repeatedly parroting the term in an obvious propaganda campaign either ordered by or paid by Los Angeles County and its supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, who is credited with publicly naming the “Carmageddon” event.
Unprecedented freeway closures, gridlock hype and the convenient use of explosives for “demolition” purposes may indicate that a Hollywood disaster movie may transpire in reality.
1.1: The “Carmageddon” Hype
The hyped-up fear surrounding “Carmageddon” is that a massive traffic backup could spread to connecting freeways subsequently gridlocking the entire Los Angeles highway system. “We wanted to get that image of what the stakes were by frankly alarming the public, getting the public’s attention, grabbing everybody by the lapels and saying, “This is a real project that is going to cause a real disaster if we aren’t prepared,” stated L.A. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky. Helping spurn the original “Carmageddon” fear and propaganda was a number of different celebrities including newly cast “Two and a Half Men” star Ashton Kutcher and “CHiPs” actor Erik Estrada. The 2012 shutdown includes two of the nation’s busiest interchanges which carry about 500,000 vehicles on a typical summer weekend, said Marc Littman, a spokesman for Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), an agency handling the project.
1.2: “Carmageddon” 2012
Starting at 12:01 a.m. on September 29, 2012, and going through October 1, 2012, the second complete closure of the I-405 will take place. The freeway is scheduled to reopen at 5 a.m. Monday, October 1st, just ahead of the morning rush hour. In 2011, “Carmageddon” finished 17 hours early but Dave Sotero, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, says not to expect that again because there’s more work this time. According to reports, “If the freeway doesn’t reopen on time, that’s when Carmageddon will really kick in.” While “they don’t expect that to happen”, officials “will be ready if it does.” “Everything that was a concern last year is still a concern this year…There may be some complacency that we are worried about. There may be a false sense of security…for drivers thinking it’s going to be a very light weekend,” stated Sotero. According to news reports, “Ground zero for the shutdown is the Sepulveda Pass, where I-405 flows northward past Westwood, Brentwood, Bel Air and other expensive canyon neighborhoods on the western side of Los Angeles”.
1.3: Explosives & Demolition
On July 14, 2011, it was reported that the unprecedented 2011 “Carmageddon” shutdown was in part due to construction crews demolishing the Mulholland Bridge as part of an alleged $1 billion freeway-widening project. On September 28, 2012, it was reported that the 2012 “Carmageddon” closure is in part due to the demolition of the Mulholland Bridge so that it can make way for its replacement. Although it’s impossible to know, the demolition of the same bridge two years running may be cover for the rigging of demolition explosives at different freeway overpasses and bridges throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Should an alleged earthquake occur, these explosives could destroy bridges and freeway overpasses in a matter of seconds leading people to believe that the earthquake was in fact responsible. Obviously, the demolition of L.A. freeways would cause an unprecedented amount of injuries, death, destruction and gridlock which would inevitably play out like a Hollywood disaster movie.
Recent earthquakes and unprecedented news in respect to earthquake related events indicate that massive and deadly earthquakes may be just around the corner. Numerous earthquake related incidents mysteriously occurring right before, during and after “Carmageddon” is not sheer coincidence and may in indicate foul play.
2.1: A 6.2 Earthquake Strikes Baja California
On September 26, 2012, just two days before “Carmageddon”, it was reported that a 6.2-magnitude earthquake shook the southern part of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. “We are calling on the public to remain calm in case there are aftershocks,” stated State Civil Defense Director Carlos Rincon, who also announced that there were no reports of damages or injuries. According to the report, the U.S. Geological Survey stated the earthquake occurred at about 4:45PM and was centered offshore in the Gulf of California. Twenty minutes later, a 4.6-magnitude aftershock occurred north of La Paz, as well as 4.8 temblor further out in the Gulf of California 12 minutes later. While there is no way to know for certain, the Baja California earthquake may be a sign that a California quake is on its way.
2.2: The Earthquake Show Trial
On September 27, 2012, just one days before “Carmageddon, it was reported that six Italian scientists and one government official could face prison terms for manslaughter for allegedly downplaying the risk of an upcoming earthquake. The earthquake in question occurred on April 6, 2009, when a 6.3 magnitude earthquake killed 309 residents in the town of L’Aquila, Italy. Although the trial began about a year ago, it is on hold until October 9, 2012, when the defense will present its closing arguments. In what appears to be an obvious show-trial with no real evidence, the international earthquake spectacle will begin playing itself out roughly a week after “Carmageddon”.
2.3: A 6.4 Earthquake Strikes Alaska
On September 28, 2012, just two days before “Carmageddon, it was reported that seismologists had recorded three earthquakes which struck 64 to 75 miles southwest of Adak, Alaska. According to reports, the lights quakes occurred at 7:28 a.m. Thursday September 27, 2012, and 11:16 p.m. Wednesday September 26, 2012, but caused no damage. The Alaska Earthquake Information Center stated that the 4.5 and 4.3 magnitude quakes were aftershocks of the 6.4 earthquake that originally struck the area on September 26, 2012. That quake was felt in the communities of Adak and Atka, more than 1,000 miles from Anchorage. While there is no way to know for certain, the Alaska earthquakes may be a sign of things to come.
2.4: Earthquake Science Suddenly Changed
On September 28, 2012, the first day of “Carmageddon” 2012, an article entitled, “Big Earthquakes Can Trigger Temblors Across Globe” was published in the San Diego Union Tribune. This shocking report essentially states that earthquake behavior has radically changed and that large earthquakes in one part of the globe can now trigger even larger secondary earthquakes elsewhere. This new theory goes against everything known about earthquakes, but provides cover for man-made, HAARP or explosive generated earthquakes. “If you asked any of us if this event is possible a year ago, we would have laughed at you,” said Thomas Heaton, a seismologist at the California Institute of Technology. “This was a really surprising finding,” said Fred Pollitz, a seismologist with the USGS and lead author of the paper. Although the behavior of the earth and earthquake science has allegedly changed, the plan to terrorize humanity under the cover of a natural disaster has not and should this man-made earthquake operation go forward, expect a series of devastating and escalating earthquakes from California to Japan and beyond
2.5: Earthquake Drill: The Great California ShakeOut!
Roughly three weeks after “Carmageddon” concludes, the annual Drop, Cover, and Hold On earthquake drill entitled the “Great California ShakeOut!” will kick-off on October 18, 2012. According to the official website, “more than 12.5 million people were registered in ShakeOut drills worldwide” and that “participating is a great way for your family or organization to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes.” Due to the hundreds if not thousands of earthquake drills which will occur worldwide on October 18, 2012, tens of millions of people will be consciously and subconsciously programmed for a future earthquake. Should a massive “earthquake” just happen to occur during “Carmageddon”, the international earthquake drills will induce unprecedented anxiety and fear while the terrorizing psychological effects of the drill will increase exponentially.
2.6: HAARP & Earthquakes
According to Wikipedia, “the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).” What Wikipedia fails to mention is that HAARP, as documented in this video, can be used as a weapon to guide weather systems and cause earthquakes. What role if any HAARP will play in a “Carmageddon” tyoe scenario is unknown, but the capability to cause widespread destruction and mayhemvia earthquakes is always at the disposal of the U.S. government.
2.7: Explosives & Earthquakes
While HAARP is credited by many Japanese citizens and well conspiracy theorists for causing the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, it is more likely that an underwater nuclear weapon or military grade explosive was used to lift up the sea just off the Japanese coast which subsequently caused unprecedented destruction and death. Whether or not HAARP or underground explosives will be used to create “The Big One” earthquake in Southern California is unknown, but all the ingredients needed for a massive earthquake disaster are already present.
III. L.A. EMERGENCY PREPARATIONS
With “Carmageddon” and numerous earthquake related events occurring simultaneously, the city of Los Angeles, California, appears to be readying itself for impending death and destruction. With a new police center, a fully staffed UCLA medical center and a new Office of Emergency Management via the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the city of Los Angeles is fully prepared to handle any upcoming man-made or natural disaster.
3.1: New LAPD Riot Center
On February 8, 2012, it was reported that the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) opened a new high-tech war room which “gives it eyes all over the city”. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck stated that “We are targets on our own soil…We have to be ready.” Located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, the new intelligence hub is interestingly called RACR. Should a massive and deadly man-made earthquake strike Los Angeles, there will likely be riots (possibly race riots), looting and mayhem which LAPD appears to be anticipating.
3.2: UCLA Medical Center Ready
On July 14, 2011, it was reported that the UCLA Medical Center had secured 600 dorms and apartments as temporary quarters for hospital staff as part of an emergency plan to prevent doctors and nurses from getting stuck in “Carmageddon” traffic. Then on September 23, 2012, it was reported that Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, just outside the “Carmageddon Zone”, planned to house as many as 300 doctors, nurses and other staff members in dorms at nearby hotels so nobody will have trouble getting to work. “Everybody, including myself, will be here to man the entire event, just to make sure everything goes safely for our patients and staff,” stated Shannon O’Kelley, UCLA’s Chief Operations Officer. Whether or not UCLA truly cares about their doctors and nurses getting to work on time is secondary, for the hospital will be fully staffed to handle massive amounts of trauma victims should a man-made earthquake or a “natural disaster” just happen to occur.
3.3: New “Office of Emergency Management”
On September 23, 2012, it was reported that a new emergency operations center opened in Santa Monica, California, during August of 2012. According to the report, Santa Monica’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is where every major transit, law enforcement and emergency services agency has been cooperating in making “Carmageddon” contingency plans. According to their mission, “The Office of Emergency Management will exist to protect the community of Santa Monica from the loss of life and property in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. One of their stated objectives is to “implement a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program, which will provide people who live and work in Santa Monica with the skills and tools to respond to emergencies.” It’s still too early to tell if “Carmageddon” was the underlying motive behind Santa Monica’s new OEM, but it obviously opened for a reason.
The U.S. economy is at an all-time low and dissent for U.S. President Barack Obama and the U.S. government is at an all-time high. According to a Financial Times article, Obama’s has a “growing credibility crisis” and there are fears that the Democrats could lose the White House and the Senate to the Republicans.
White House advisor Robert Shapiro made it crystal clear that Obama is relying on a terror attack to rescue his presidency: “The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership,” said Shapiro, “He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.”
An unprecedented “natural disaster” earthquake type terror event in Los Angeles would give Obama the national tragedy that to date he has been unable to pull off. On February 6, 2011, the Obama administration was caught red-handed attempting to conduct a nuclear terror attack on Super Bowl XLV in Dallas, Texas. Then on September of 2012, the Obama administration was again caught red-handed trying to stage a 9/11 style terror attack on the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Unlike a terror attack, a “natural disaster” is a safer way for Obama and his administration to play savior in the aftermath of a national tragedy.
Desperate people do desperate things and staging the “The Big One” earthquake scenario would give Obama the platform he desperately needs and would play nicely into the whole 2012 Doomsday scenario. Under the cover of a “natural disaster”, the Obama administration could conduct dirty deeds while remaining relatively suspicion free. Post-earthquake, Obama’s poll numbers would rise and law and order in Los Angeles may break down eventually leading martial law.
