Subject: The coming Y2K global disaster and opportunity for change -- Supply/infrastructure collapse, widespread disruptions, martial law and much much worse and... a bright Light at the end of the tunnel

Hello everyone

Many of you must have been wondering why this long silence from me. Well, in a nutshell, I've been too busy. However the 12 days hiatus in my email communications to most of you might very well prefigure what will happen in 90 days from now, beginning at the stroke of midnight, January 1st, 2000. As much as we would like this moment to be the turning point from a century dominated by greed and violence to the "x" magnitude towards a new era of peaceful and benevolent coexistence with each other and all other life forms, the sad truth is that it will actually be the threshold point into a very rough ride for our complacent and self-obsessed civilization. How it will turn out will in the end depends of our spiritual resilience in the face of utter adversity to make the best of the collective trauma we will all experience and quickly learn a few essential lessons: unless we learn to share with each other, care for each other and love each other, we are doomed.

Some malevolent forces would like to precipitate a hellish chaos to impose by force their version of 1984 (this is the title of George Orwell's apocalyptic novel in which Big Brother controls every single aspect of everyone's life). And they are feverishly, albeit stealthily, preparing to unleash their Dark Plan. On the other side of the cosmic ring, we have the benevolent forces which, under the banner of the invisible spiritual hierarchy and with the assistance of entities from all parts of the multidimensional realms, are poised to openly enter the fray and lead the world towards a Golden Age of Love and Harmony where Peace *will* prevail. And in the middle ground, we all stand, disunited in our fears, but strongly united in our love and trust in Life and God. In the very center of our being is now being played the cosmic drama of our age, for it is in the very heart of our consciousness that we choose which way we want to go: towards Light... or towards the absence of Light.

This is all of course a highly metaphorical language used to express some simple universal truths. The miracle of Love is the redeeming Force that is changing forever the very nature of our existence in this physical realm. Everyday we can see its multifacetted effects all over the Earth - and I could give you many examples but if you read the news with this perspective in mind, you'll find endless examples of the Power of Love to overcome hatred and bring succour to those in need of assistance. Of course, there are still some deep pockets of resistance, but sooner or later, even these pockets will dissipate and everyone will understand that a new era has begun and that the ways of the past are no longer acceptable. "Business as usual" is coming to a definite end very shortly. The affairs of the world will undergo unprecendented changes and those who wanted to sow chaos will reap instead a tsunami of Love and compassion... and the world shall be changed forever.

There is no other alternative -- we must outgrow our limited egos and unite as One Human Family to create a new era of sharing, caring and love... or face the unimaginably stark consequences of selfishness, greed and hateful violence.

Now as I've been considering which material to share with you out of the endless stream of Y2K related news circulating on the Net, I've had to consider a wide variety of perspectives on all this and decide which is the most representative of each aspect of this complex problematic. I assume that by now most of you are familiar with the basics: the computer bug that has been giving headheaches - and fat contracts - to computer programmers is a million-headed hydra that is completely uncontrollable because this "glitch" pervades the entire fabric of out techno-dependent civilization. Faced with the mind-boggling perspective of losing the security of electrical power and the computerized management of so many aspects of our lives, a majority of people have so far acted as if nothing of what the doomsayers announce will actually occur. Very few have made realistic preparations - at least one month of food and drinking water supply and sufficient ways to keep comfortable in the middle of winter for a relatively long period. To exemplify how acute the problems *could* turn out, even in the most Y2K compliant-and-ready country of the world, Canada, the army has been planning its largest rescue mission in its history to try to provide a minimum of assistance to the population if and when the power goes out and nothing else works as usual. So imagine what the rest of the world will go through...

The strategy of nearly all governments so far has been one of lie and deception to try to hide the true nature of the coming tribulation. Of course, in light of the covert direct and indirect control of all the governments by an elite establishment of ultra-wealthy individuals, this was to be expected in order to maximize the planned chaos and justify imposing the martial law. But what if that chaos (rioting and looting, etc.) does not occur as planned despite all the tricks they'll use to provoke widespread social unrest? What if almost everyone keeps his/her cool and focus to cooperate with everyone else to resolve the problems one by one? What is Love and Peace prevail? That's our Plan "S" - the Spiritual r-evolution triggered by years of love and peace buildup in the invisible realm where we are all linked. I'm sure you get my drift by now...

So I'll let you sample the material provide below and in other related emails to come your way in the next few days - yeah! brace yourself for lots of reading stuff! ;-) - and I'll wait to hear from you as to what your thoughts, feelings and insights are on this whole situation - to be shared with everyone shorthly.

Looking forward to hear from you again

Subject: GSReport -- Vol.1 No.17, Part 1 -- Sept 10, 1999


One of the biggest stories in recent memory -- one that continues to be absurdly under-reported and, it would seem, even intentionally misreported -- is Y2K.

Last week, GSReport made the acquaintance of a new voice in the Y2K
controvery -- new to us, at any rate -- that of Prof. Paula Gordon. We
discovered that Prof. Gordon is saying, with clarity, rigor and great force,
exactly what we here at GSReport have tried to say since our inception last
January -- that you, dear reader, are being lied to and misled about the true
scope and danger of Y2K, and that you must prepare, despite all official
assurances to the contrary. Prof. Gordon's voice comes as a breath of fresh
air hereabouts. Her message is not pretty, but if people will listen, much
harm can perhaps still be avoided. Thus, my choice for today's lead story
comes to this: The balance of Part 1 belongs to Paula Gordon.

Excerpts from a white paper on The Year 2000 and Embedded Systems Crisis,
reprinted with permission.

By Paula Gordon, Ph.D.

(clip - Amazing credentials of Paula Gordon taken out for the sake of brievity)

Paula Gordon has observed that the Clinton administration does not appear to
be acting in the public interest in its handling of what she terms the Year
2000 and Embedded Systems Crisis. For this reason among others, she has
undertaken the writing of a "working white paper" titled "A Call to Action:
National and Global Implications of the Year 2000 and Embedded Systems
Crisis." The entire text of this paper, in five major parts plus notes and
references, is posted at http://www.gwu.edu/~y2k/keypeople/gordon/.

Paula Gordon writes:

WHAT ACCOUNTS for the current approach that [the Clinton] Administration has
been taking concerning Y2K? It may be that the President has not taken to
heart the concerns that have been expressed to him regarding the seriousness
of the problem. On the other hand, he may have some recognition of the
seriousness of the problem, but he may have determined that substantially
increasing Federal efforts to address the problem now is not the best

From my vantage point, by delaying action that would help safeguard the
public good, the President is abrogating his responsibilities as President...
If the President were to exercise real leadership on this issue, he would
persuade the public to begin to make necessary preparations now.

Impacts could be substantially minimized if concerted actions were also taken
now to avert numerous technological disasters that can be expected. This
includes disasters of the magnitude of Chernobyl and Bhopal. The U.S. and the
U.N. (and related global institutions) simply have not treated the Y2K and
embedded systems crisis as a crisis and, with extremely limited exceptions,
have not organized efforts and brought necessary resources to bear in
minimizing technological disasters. Part of the reason that international
organizations have failed to treat Y2K as a crisis may well be the absence of
U.S. leadership and dedicated resources.

If the President continues to pursue his present course of restrained
activity and if he fails to engage in crisis-oriented action and
problem-solving, the Y2K crisis could well go down in history as the worst
instance of malfeasance in public office in the history of the nation.

One thing is clear: the President's failure to take adequate actions now to
encourage the public to take adequate preparations and to minimize the
impacts of Y2K and the embedded systems crisis will cost the nation and the
world dearly. For whatever reason or set of reasons, he is in effect failing
to place the public good first. It is my hope that the President will realize
his errors in judgment and depart immediately from his current plan, which
from all indications is to wait to act until the rollover before bringing
needed resources to bear. The Y2K and embedded systems crisis is most
assuredly an instance where "an ounce of prevention" is worth far, far more
than "a pound of cure".

As of August 18, I provisionally estimate the impacts of the Y2K and embedded
systems crisis to be between 4.5 and 9.5 on the impact scale.

NOTE: Gordon refers to potential Y2K impacts in the United States on a
10-point scale developed by the Washington D. C. Year 2000 Group (WDCY2K).
This scale is as follows:

0 -- No real impact
1 -- Local impact for some enterprises
2 -- Significant impact for many enterprises
3 -- Significant market adjustment (20%+ drop); some bankruptcies
4 -- Economic slowdown; rise in unemployment; isolated social incidents
5 -- Mild recession; isolated supply/infrastructure problems; runs on banks
6 -- Strong recession; local social disruptions; many bankruptcies
7 -- Political crises; regional supply/infrastructure problems, disruptions
8 -- Depression; infrastructure crippled; markets collapse; local martial law
9 -- Supply/infrastructure collapse; widespread disruptions, martial law
10 -- Collapse of US government; possible famine

The 9.5 figure assumes that the Federal government continues on its present
course of relative inaction and

1) fails to engage in broader and accelerated remediation efforts to prevent
or minimize serious and potentially catastrophic problems with the highest
risk systems, plants, sites, pipelines, etc. that are otherwise likely to
occur nationally and globally and

2) fails to engage in concerted emergency preparedness actions, including
urging and assisting the populations here and abroad to begin now to store
adequate supplies of non-perishable food and water and

3) fails to make other preparations that could help ensure social stability
during and after the rollover. This includes encouraging the postponement of
celebrations for several weeks, if not a full year to 2001 in order to
minimize a set of totally preventable problems that can otherwise be
anticipated at the time of the rollover.

The Likely Outcome

In June of 1999, I had estimated that impacts could be as low as a 4 if the
Federal government determined that the Y2K and embedded systems crisis was
indeed a crisis and took responsible action... This would include creating a
Special Action Office for Y2K in the Executive Office of the President and
establishing a similar effort at the UN. These efforts would treat the
situation as the crisis that it is and engage in proactive steps to ensure
that everything is done that can be done to minimize harmful impacts,
particularly technological disasters, both here and abroad...

As of August 1999, my lower level estimate increased to 4.5, owing to failure
of the government to move decisively to implement a crisis-oriented and
action-oriented approach to addressing Y2K. Failure to act has left less time
to take actions that are yet needed to minimize impacts. My lower level
estimate has also moved up owing to the fact that so many [people] I know
about who have first hand knowledge of remediation efforts are reporting
serious discrepancies between the progress that has been reported and the

My estimate of the maximum level of impacts has moved up from an 8 since the
first of the year owing to my increased awareness of the serious problems
associated with weapons systems (because of human, as well as computer
interfaces), nuclear power plants, chemical plants, hazardous materials sites
and facilities, refineries, and pipelines. I am [now] at a provisional 9.5
level as a maximum prediction because of the apparent reluctance on the part
of the Clinton Administration to initiate the kinds of actions that are

Where Does the President Stand on Y2K?

Since learning of Y2K, I have been trying to solve a mystery concerning what
could possibly account for the apparent reluctance of the Clinton
Administration to declare Y2K a crisis and act accordingly. In my first
conversation with the head of the President's Council in June of 1998, I
asked what steps were being taking to minimize the wide range of disasters
that could be expected. The response was that the Council would be making
assessments and would determine what actions needed to be taken in Spring of
1999. No definitive determinations seem to have been reached as of the Summer
of 1999.

In June of 1999, on receiving some new information concerning statements that
the President had reportedly made in private, I developed a working
hypothesis that the President has made a political calculation not to
substantially increase efforts to address Y2K now, but to instead wait until
the December 31 rollover. Has the President made a calculated judgment that
it is best for the economy and that it is best for political reasons to wait
to act until after the rollover and then step in and focus Federal efforts on
the recovery period?

I shared much of this hypothesis with Congressman Dennis Kucinich in a public
forum on July 28 at the Y2K Conference held at George Washington University
in Washington, DC July 26-30. I asked the Congressman what his views were. To
my surprise, he said that the President has indeed made a decision not to
focus on addressing Y2K now owing to the negative impact that raising the
public's awareness of the seriousness of the problem would likely have on the
economy and hence the next election. Congressman Kucinich also noted that the
President may be reluctant to acknowledge the seriousness of Y2K and take
"ownership" and responsibility now because doing so would be unnecessarily
assuming too great a political risk. (See


From all indications, both the President and the Vice President appear to
have an inadequate understanding of the embedded systems aspect of Y2K...
Apparently no one has been successful in both getting access to the President
and the Vice President and convincing them of the special threats and
challenges posed by the malfunctioning of embedded systems in the highest
risk systems, plants, sites, facilities and pipelines. Indeed, even top
officials at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) do not seem to
comprehend fully the direct as well as indirect impacts that malfunctioning
embedded systems can have on "safety critical" systems.


Some might argue that the newly formed Information Coordination Center (ICC)
has been set up to address the need for action. [But] close scrutiny of the
materials that have been made public concerning this new enterprise reveals
that the ICC... in no way addresses the need for a crisis-oriented and
action-oriented effort... to minimize harmful impacts between now and the
rollover. An amendment to Executive Order 13073... provides for the
establishment of this major "information coordination" effort focusing on
Y2K-related information gathering and assessment efforts. These efforts are
geared to response, recovery, and continuity planning and implementation, not
to actions that could be taken before the problems occur.

The establishment of the ICC was at first in many ways a mystery, but its
establishment becomes much less of a mystery when viewed in light of the
President's evident strategy not to take decisive action until the rollover
and post rollover period. Evidently some 40 people are soon to be involved in
the ICC effort (around four times the size of the present full time staff of
the President's Y2K Council). Over 200... new hires or detailees from other
agencies are to swell the ranks of the ICC by the time of the rollover.


The Consequences of Failing to Act Now

One must recognize that when and as reality takes hold concerning the
seriousness of the situation we are in because of Y2K, the economy will
likely be shaken to the core. Prolonging the onset of likely economic
dislocations in effect helps to perpetuate the status quo, but in this
instance, it can readily be argued, delaying action until the December 31
rollover could create an even greater crisis, in all ways, including

Waiting until the rollover to act is not acting in the public interest.
Waiting until the rollover to act will result in untold additional costs, and
not just in terms of impacts on the lives and livelihoods of individuals and
families. It will have extraordinary impacts on communities, businesses,
industry, the disadvantaged, the aged, the disabled, and the infirm. It will
affect all sectors of society. There will be untold additional costs
associated with public health and safety consequences and restoring
environmental viability in areas affected by technological disasters. Even
more important, the long term consequences regarding the possible destruction
of an already fragile social fabric might not be readily mendable -- if
indeed it can be mended at all.

What must be remembered concerning the threats and challenges posed by the
Y2K and embedded systems crisis is that a person's psyche can also be shaken
to the core when the seriousness of the crisis is fully faced. It may take
weeks, if not months, for an individual to achieve some sense of equilibrium
in his or her life after beginning to grasp the seriousness of the crisis. If
the seriousness of the situation does not dawn on an individual until soon
before rollover or until the time of the rollover, there will not be adequate
time for those individuals to take preparedness steps. Such preparedness
steps could help give them and their families at least a minimum sense of
security confronting the unknowns associated with Y2K.

The sooner that people comprehend the seriousness of Y2K, the better able
they will be to take preparedness steps and to establish some sense of
psychological equilibrium. Such equilibrium may well be crucial to getting
through the post-rollover period, a time which is apt to be filled with many
intermittent surprises and problems.


An especially disquieting trend pertaining to the withholding of vital
information [is]... what seems to have become a widespread policy of
encouraging the media to "accentuate the positive" and ignore the negative or
sensational... The problem with such a policy is that information concerning
the real threats and challenges -- classified by some as being "sensational"
-- may thereby be kept not only from the public, but it may also be kept from
persons in roles of responsibility in both the public and private sectors,
persons who need to know the information. How can anyone be expected to act
in an informed way if important information regarding threats and challenges
to their immediate future and the future stability of the nation and the
world is kept from them? ....

The tendency to want to manage and "dumb down" the news so as not to risk
engendering panic in the public is making a lot of knowing people very angry
and frustrated. It also confuses people and keeps many in the dark. It can
perpetuate an erroneous view of reality, which can have decidedly negative
psychological and social psychological affects.

Withholding the truth is a misguided policy and is a certain recipe for panic
in the days immediately preceding and following the rollover. Adopting such a
policy of withholding critical information is one thing in a parent-child
relationship; it is quite another when the principals include public
officials and the adult population of a free nation. The policy will leave
the public largely unprepared psychologically or in any other way. The public
will be ill-prepared to meet the challenges that are likely with the
rollover. A major reason to raise awareness now and encourage constructive
actions now is that, in the anxiety of the moment, there will be no time for
individuals to go through the long process of getting used to the fact that
we are in the midst of a crisis. Time is needed to work through this process
and to adjust to a decidedly different view of what the future might bring.

Y2Chaos: Does the FBI Have a Waco-Like Plan for Black America?

With Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff

Y2Chaos: Does the FBI Have a Waco-Like Plan for Black America?

Could Waco happen again - this time not in rural Texas but instead in the
heart of America's urban centers? Former FBI agent and criminal justice Ph.D. Tyrone Powers says the Bureau has just such a Y2K contingency plan, code named "Mad Max."

In a Saturday interview on PBS's "Tony Brown's Journal," Powers laid out
the FBI's plan for martial law, including the rounding up of "dissidents,"
should power go down and disorder break out during a Y2K crisis.

The ten-year FBI veteran contends that U.S. intelligence agencies,
including the FBI, the CIA, Navy Intelligence and other intelligence
services, have drawn up plans in case a Y2K "castastrophe" hits next
January. But beyond January, says Powers, "they were also preparing for
Y2K-related events to occur throughout the year 2000. In fact, they were
planning for operations as far down as June, when the weather turns warm in
certain cities."

The "Mad Max" plan, named after the 1980s Mel Gibson film depicting the
total breakdown of social order, is a worst-case contingency plan, claims

"The FBI expects, in this [worst] case scenario, that people would begin
to riot and loot. And specifically they believe this would happen in urban
areas among black citizens," says
the retired agent.

"In this case, they've set up a scenario where they would respond by,
first of all, having the president declare martial law. And they have a
written plan for this. And once he declared martial law, then these
agencies, along with the HRT team, which is the FBI's Hostage Recovery Team,
which is kind of a SWAT force, would go in to restore order in these
particular places...to calm down the looting and bring back stability to
the urban areas."

But isn't it a good idea for the FBI to plan for the worst, just in case?

Certainly, says Powers. In fact, such planning is routine. "Except the
type of response that they're planning for these areas is not really routine in this particular instance. For instance, the HRT team...does not usually respond to urban riots and looting. They're the group that was used in the case in Waco and the case up on Ruby Ridge.... So their involvement in this, their response to this kind of a scenario, is different than it would be in any other case."

Powers told PBS's Brown that the name "Hostage Recovery Team" really
disguises the group's true mission.

"Essentially they're not trained to recover hostages. They're trained to
do other things and we saw that at Waco and Ruby Ridge. They're trained to
go in and restore order by any means necessary."

The ex-agent said the government's response to the riots of the 1960s
formed the basis for its Y2K "Mad Max" plan:

"When I was with the Maryland State Police, we had what they called urban
assault vehicles or urban tanks. And this came about right after the riots
of the late 1960s. And so they created plans to go in and restore stability
by going in and making mass arrests and moving people from one
location to the other.... They're prepared to go in and control the public
in mass numbers and move them to certain locations."

Most chillingly, Dr. Powers described what one source told him was the
government's "acceptable loss rate" for its Y2K urban contingency plan
during a massive blackout:

"If in fact we lose electricity, now you're talking about making movements
under the cover of darkness....

And they realize they have an acceptable loss rate, and my source told me
about that - which is still not a surprise if you know intelligence
organizations. In these movements that occur at night, there may be some
innocent people who are harmed and shot, but that's acceptable,"
according to current government thinking.

Powers described the FBI's Y2K "acceptable loss" calculation as something
that would be "no different than in any other battle or war."

The ex-agent also says that the FBI may take advantage of Y2K chaos to
round up "dissidents," which the FBI continues to monitor despite the
demise of such bureau operations as "Cointelpro."

"Many of the operations that the FBI had during the 60s that we thought
were bygone are still in place," claims Powers, who explained that the FBI
maintains a network of F.O.B.s ('Friends of the Bureau') who continue to
gather intelligence on media and other organizations on a regular basis.

"During the time I was working at the FBI, as I began to see some of this
paperwork that reminded me of the counter-intelligence operations of the
60s, I asked one of my supervisors, 'Why would they continue this?'"

His boss's response, according to Powers: "Why would we stop when it was
so effective?"

Powers explained that the government would justify a Y2K roundup of
America's "dissidents" as necessary to the restoration of order:

"The government believes that it is these people who could actually either
calm the situation or create more chaos as the government moves in. If the
government decided that they're going to move because of Y2K into a
particular community, and there are people in that community who
are saying, 'This is what I've been telling you about all along, the
government is moving on us' - we've got to remove these people who might
give that indication as we move to restore order."

Dr. Powers has just authored a new book: "Eyes to My Soul: The Rise or
Decline of a Black FBI Agent."

This just came in thanks to Rob Meyer.

Brandon moved a year before I started attending, but several people,
including the pastor, say that Brandon is totally honest and does not
go off half cocked. Brandon told me that his wife received a call from
her cousin last week.

The cousin lives in Ohio and her husband is a truck driver
for Wal-Mart. It seems he was driving a load early last week and
stopped at a border weigh station. The inspector wanted to know what was in the
load, and the driver indicated he did not know. He merely picked up
the trailer and was transporting it to another state.

The inspector opened the trailer and saw hundreds of uniform
boxes. He asked what was in the boxes and the driver again stated that
he didn't know. So the inspector opened a box. In the box were about
a hundred large (about 2'x3') plastic signs that stated: This City
Under Martial Law in bright colors. It said something about the fed.
govt. and had what looked like a legal reference (the driver claims to
know nothing about legal issues, but he thought it was a reference to a
law or an Executive Order or something). There were several hundred
boxes of these signs. The driver doesn't know what Wal-Mart has to do
with the signs. But he did state that Wal-Mart sometimes hires out space on
their trucks if space is available. I might suggest that maybe the
govt. was using Wal-Mart trucks to keep a low profile. Anyway, the info came to me by way of a long route. But the sources are innocent bystanders with no history of right-wing reactionary politics. The driver was married to a woman who was related to Brandon's wife. He swears the info is accurate and that he
spoke with the driver himself to confirm what was passed between the
respective wives. The driver claims there were hundreds of boxes, each
one with at least a hundred large signs declaring martial law. I thought this was worth passing along.

Especially since the fed. govt. is telling us (Wednesday issue of USA Today and
today's press releases) that we have nothing to fear.

Yours in freedom, at least a little while longer,
