Could it be that Turkey was targeted with a Direct Energy Weapon which triggered the magnitude 7.8 earthquake and caused over 40,000 deaths? Many people on the internet are curious about the coincidence of President Erdoğan rejecting NATO and the possibility this “natural disaster” was payback for his insolence. We reported weeks ago that High-power ELF radiation generated by modulated HF heating of the ionosphere could cause severe earth disturbances, such as earthquakes and bomb cyclones.  Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with the founder of, Dane Wigington, about A COG IN THE EARTHQUAKE MACHINE.





Sweden and Finland announced last year they would seek to join NATO, a historic reversal for two countries that have remained militarily non-aligned. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine changed their calculus, especially in Finland, which shares a border with Russia and has the memory of its own invasion by the country. Both are strong European democracies, and both have modern militaries that were already closely cooperating with NATO, so ascension was expected to be relatively uncontroversial and quick, unlike some other recent bids, which elicited a lot more criticism about the risks of NATO expansionism.

Perhaps most importantly, the timing of their applications represented a strategic and symbolic win for an alliance invigorated and united against the Russian attack on Ukraine.

But Turkey quickly complicated things, with Erdoğan saying the country would not back the Finnish and Swedish bids. Turkey objected to what it saw as both countries’ — but especially Sweden’s — support or role as a safe haven for the PKK, and other networks Turkey has deemed terrorist groups. Sweden has traditionally taken in many Kurdish refugees, but Turkey sees Sweden as providing a refuge for organizing and financing anti-Turkish activities.

The PKK has staged terrorist attacks in Turkey (it is designated as a terrorist organization by the US and European Union), but Erdoğan has also arbitrarily cracked down on Kurdish groups and other opposition members of civil society. Erdoğan also objected to the countries’ arms embargoes on Turkey, which were put in place after Turkey invaded Syria in 2019.

Internationally, Turkey’s future affects the war in Ukraine, given Erdogan’s role as a mediator between Ukraine and Russia. Turkey is the main NATO member still standing in the way of Sweden and Finland’s accession to the powerful defense alliance.

With all of the dismissal of NATO and the fate of Sweden and Finland in the balance it seems to be a horrible coincidence that after Erdogan rejection of the plan — we see that Turkey is hit by two devastating earthquakes/

A magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Turkey and Syria on Monday,

A 7.5 magnitude, Quake followed with dozens of aftershocks later.

The actual slip that triggered the 7.8-magnitude quake occurred over a period of about 75 seconds, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. For most people in Turkey, that quake probably resulted in one to two minutes of shaking.

The shaking from Turkey’s earthquakes was felt by seismometers across the world. The quake was felt all the way to Greenland.

That is a lot of underground electrical power moving across the planet.

Before the Earthquake people in Turkey’s Bursa region were surprised when a rare cloud formation appeared in the sky on January 21st . A video of the incredible spectacle led some internet users to assume what they saw was an unidentified flying object.

The cloud was described as looking like a huge mothership. a rose, some say it opened up a huge vortex that had lightning inside.

A  video of the foreboding cloud, captured from a moving vehicle, shows a large circular cloud formation at sunset. There are many vortex or circular patterns and a hole also seems to appear in the middle. The cloud formation seen hovering over buildings and hills was threatening.

It eerily remained in the sky and expanded until it most certainly looked like an alien mothership.

The weather forecasters determined it was a lenticular cloud.

Explaining about the cloud, meteorologists said that when lenticular clouds take shape, there is stability in air and winds blow across hills and mountains from the same or similar directions at different heights through the troposphere.

People in Bursa said that the cloud was billowing with lightning inside it.

It was unreal.

Pictures on the internet went viral as this so-called lenticular cloud was very bizarre and did not look like a normal cloud as it appeared to have concentric rings like a tree or a flower.

It was the only cloud in the sky.

Before the first earthquake hit — there were strange lights in the sky. Videos taken just before the quake show blue light flashes, green light flashes and red lights.  This all looked like lighting coming up form the ground.

Later there were also electric substations exploding creating and even more spectacular light show.

It actually looked like an alien invasion or a laser war happening over Turkey.

After the quake the weather shifted and the mercury plunged to freezing temperatures.

As of the time of the this report more than 33,000 people are dead.

With their homes destroyed, thousands spent a freezing Wednesday night amid the debris in the streets of Adiyaman, huddled around small fires and with little shelter. Electricity and water were nonexistent in the southern city.

Fearful of another earthquake, some chose to stay out in the open, avoiding buildings that appeared intact, and to brave the subzero temperatures.

Some grieved silently, while others shouted their despair as the quakes continued to claim more victims. One man burst into an aid organization center and demanded loudly that officials rescue his family.

Others in Adiyaman said they were furious at what they claim is a slow response from the government, and said rescue teams had arrived in the city with the wrong equipment to dig through the rubble.

There are a lot of people on the internet that are curious about the coincidence of Erdoğan rejecting NATO and the possibility that the earthquake was payback for his insolence.

Could it be that Turkey was targeted with a Direct energy weapon and that this is what triggered the earthquake?

We reported weeks ago that High-power ELF radiation generated by modulated HF heating of the ionosphere can cause Earthquakes, and Bomb Cyclones that can immediately cause barometric pressure and temperatures to plunge.

Again, the HAARP Project has been active as of late and I am sure there are other ways to use Ionospheric heaters or even underground lightning to trigger a reaction.

The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is actually the most important facility used to generate extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic radiation in the ionosphere. In order to produce this ELF radiation the HAARP transmitter radiates a strong beam of high-frequency (HF) waves modulated at ELF.

This HF heating modulates the electron temperature in the D region ionosphere and leads to modulated conductivity and a time-varying current which then radiates at the modulation frequency.

Recently, the HAARP HF transmitter operated with 3.6GW of effective radiated power modulated at a frequency of 2.5Hz.

It is being used now, to bounce signals off of asteroids.

Back in 2019, China and Russia conducted a joint ionospheric modification experiment using the Sura Ionospheric Heater and a Chinese satellite to measure the ionospheric changes. This experiment is very similar to those conducted using the HAARP Ionospheric Research Instrument in Gakona, Alaska and the DEMETER Satellite.

A total of five experiments were carried out. One caused physical disturbance over an area as large as 126,000 sq km (49,000 square miles), or about half the size of Britain.

The modified zone, looming more than 500km (310 miles) high over Vasilsursk, a small Russian town in Eastern Europe, experienced an electric spike with 10 times more negatively charged subatomic particles than surrounding regions.

In another experiment, the temperature of thin, ionized gas at high altitude increased more than 212 degrees Fahrenheit because of the particle flux.

There are other places where electronic earthquake triggering takes place.

China Lake is believed to be the Department of Defense’s premiere electronic warfare site where advanced electro-magnetic weapons and Direct Energy weapons are tested.

China Lake developed 75% of the air-launched weapons used during Vietnam and jointly developed 80% of those used during Iraqi Freedom— and the Center is rumored to be developing future weapons for land air and sea. They also may be developing weapons for space.

In 2019 Two major earthquakes  struck Southern which opened fault lines in China Lake and prompted officials to evacuate residents.

U.S. Geological Survey experts identified the epicenters of the two largest tremors and countless others as occurring within the Navy installation.

Navy personnel and California National Guard aircrews assisted geologists in surveying the impacts of the tremors, which cracked paved roads, opened gashes across the desert area and shifted railroad tracks.

The weapons station, as well as nearby towns of Ridgecrest and Trona, saw scattered damage from the quakes but no deaths or major destruction.

China Lake officials had reported few details about effects to the weapons station and offered scant information in public updates posted on the weapons station’s official Facebook page.

There were residents however that stated that just before the earthquakes there was a very strange hum and bolts from the sky. They also reported that the utility wires were burning red hot and eventually disintegrated,

The weapons station, about 150 miles north of Los Angeles, stretches northeast from Ridgecrest, a high-desert desert town of 28,000. The installation includes several significant cultural or archaeological areas, including the Coso Rocks, a national historic landmark.

The facility is as big as Rhode Island and has been nicknamed “the secret city.” There is a sign posted at the highly secure gates at China Lake that says:






The Secret City is very much like Area 51; however, there are no crazy internet challenges to storm the facility– it is too remote.

When the earthquakes first were reported in California, I received an e-mail from a source that told me an outrageous story. He said that there was some electromagnetic testing going on in California. There were reports of a very high-pitched whine that people were hearing before the quakes. He also claimed that a UFO was sighted passing over the Ridgecrest area and Joshua Tree, to the south.

The UFO was reported by meteorologists to be a lenticular cloud.

Crazy coincidence I suppose.

I called him to verify and he said he said it sounded crazy but he said that that there was something that he felt was going on at the Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex dealing with some sort of space tracking and communications.

Again it is the same operation that HAARP has been doing.

It was later reported that after the quake hundreds of thousands of bees fell from the sky and were convulsing on the ground.

The China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station has a verifiable historical connection to weather modification programs.  That fact is acknowledged by the U.S. Naval Museum of Armament and Technology in their website article about The Secret City which states, “From weather modification to satellite-delivery systems, the contributions of Naval air weapons station have not stopped with armament.”

The biggest question is whether or not geoengineering weapons were tested at China Lake and did they trigger the earthquakes and zapped the bees from the sky.

There has always been questions raised over whether or not Direct Energy weapons and other secret weapons can be used for Induced Seismicity.

In 1973, the US Senate adopted a resolution calling for an international agreement “prohibiting the use of any environmental or geophysical modification activity as a weapon of war….” President Nixon ordered the Defense Department to review the military aspects of weather and seismic control weapons.

During the July 1974 summit meeting in Moscow, Nixon and General Secretary Brezhnev agreed to hold bilateral talks to achieve “the most effective measures possible to overcome the dangers of the use of environmental modification techniques for military purposes.” Discussions continued in 1974 and 1975, resulting in an agreement on a common approach and language. The 1977 UN Convention followed, ratified 98-0 by the Senate on November 28, 1979. It took effect on January 17, 1980, but was violated thereafter by both sides.

Human environmental modification techniques can cause irreversible damage. Yet international standards haven’t stopped their development.

If there are no seismic weapons — then why have a summit to discuss not using these weapons?

There are unconfirmed reports of a column of fire that was seen coming down out the clouds over Turkey. This created chaos as the animals were upset some of them running away and disappearing.

Many people do not know that Turkey possesses direct energy weapons technology.

The ALKA directed-energy weapon system is a Turkish dual electromagnetic/laser weapon developed by Rokestan a Turkish weapons manufacturer and defense contractor. It was first unveiled at the 2019 IDEF exhibition on 8 May 2019. This combat laser was allegedly used to destroy one of GNC’s Wing Loong II UAVs; if true, this would represent the first known time a vehicle-mounted combat laser was used to destroy another combat vehicle during genuine wartime conditions.

The technology exists and now the question is who is using these weapons to punish Turkey?

Do you believe that this is just a coincidence or was Turkey targeted?

Another example of a possible Direct energy seismic hit was the 2010 Haiti quake.

Headlines form Europe and Russia made claims that the Traget was Iran and somehow the alleged quake weapon hit Haiti.

An online article headlined, “US weapon test aimed at Iran caused Haiti quake,” stated:

“An unconfirmed report by the Russian Northern Fleets says the Haiti earthquake was caused by a flawed US Navy ‘earthquake weapons’ test before (they) could be utilized against Iran. (Something) went ‘horribly wrong’ and caused the catastrophic quake in the Caribbean,”

The unconfirmed Russian report said America carried out a similar test in the Pacific Ocean, causing a 6.5 magnitude quake near Eureka, CA. No deaths or injuries were reported, but many buildings were damaged.

Furthermore, it was reported that the US Navy may have had “full knowledge” of the test’s damage potential, and speculated it was why Deputy Southern Command General PK Keen was in Haiti when the quake struck there, preparing to act in case of a disaster, perhaps an engineered one/

A Haiti disaster relief scenario had been envisaged at the headquarters of US Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) in Miami one day prior to the earthquake (since) pre-disaster simulations pertain(ing) to the impacts of a hurricane in Haiti” were conducted.

When the quake struck, TISC was in “an advanced stage of readiness.” The next day, SOUTHCOM implemented the system. “The (DOD’s) Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA)” set up a relief effort among “a range of Defense units and various” NGOs and aid groups operating “as part of a carefully planned military operation.” Did DOD have advanced knowledge of the quake so could act immediately when it struck? Was the drill’s timing a coincidence or something more sinister?

This is an amazing possibility as we have these weapons that can electrify a region creating seismic amperage enough to level a city–as an act of war.

Just this week it was announced that during a meeting of Romanian Parliament that, Senator Diana Lovanovici lambasted globalists for their role in a genocidal plot utilizing the “alleged pandemic” and COVID death jabs.

She also blamed the West for using “geological weapons” to cause an earthquake in Turkey.

Lovanovici said “It is very clear to me that at this point, things at the international level have gotten out of hand, the fools are playing as God, and they think they have won the game.”

“Cause of these demented and psychopathic people who cause wars and cataclysms using unconventional weapons, we, humans, are just numbers they can get rid of.”

Further more she stated :

“For three years, we have been experiencing a real campaign of mass killing worldwide, either through alleged pandemics and the imminent need to inject untested vaccines that kill people, or through wars that reduce the world’s population, but rearranges international politics, realigns power poles and alters borders. We have lived to witness the production of earthquakes on command which is actually an attack on Turkey by the greatest of the world who totally disliked being set up by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the President of Turkey.

Moreover, his position of neutrality and mediator in the Ukrainian-Russian war deeply disturbed them, especially since Turkey is the second great power from a military point of view within NATO. His position to block Sweden’s accession to NATO, his speech in Davos, as well as the gesture of leaving in the middle of the press conference, defying Schwab, did not remain without an echo in the cold world of leaders the world. But, no one thought that people would have to die, so many people, and in such a terrible way. And it’s just a warning, because it wasn’t the most populated area of Turkey.

150 aftershocks of a devastating earthquake, the second larger than the first, without the existence of an epicenter, the area being artificially stimulated, geological weapons having existed for a very long time, being used so far without causing too many casualties, probably for experiments. Now, it has been put into practice. If we look carefully at the map of Turkey, we will see that it is furrowed by gas and oil pipelines, this being actually one of the goals: their destruction.

But, 10 seconds before the occurrence of the so-called earthquake, the Turks closed these pipelines. In addition, 24 hours before the earthquake, 10 countries withdrew their ambassadors from Turkey. 5 days before its occurrence, the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a travel warning for Romanian citizens in Turkey, although there was no danger, as did other countries. By killing people, they served their interests. The maps shown on all the television channels show that there was no epicenter, but a line with thousands of earthquakes.”

She made it very clear that the earthquakes in Turkey were the result of a geo-weapon and that it is punishment for Erdogan not cooperating.

“It is very clear that President Erdogan was punished for his courage, dignity and honor and for his closeness to the Russian Federation, in fact a position of neutrality and mediation for peace. In addition, it is desired to divert people’s attention from Ukraine, where representatives of many countries have already begun to shout against the despotism and orders given by President Zelensky, as if he is ruling the world and someone is obliged to send weapons and participate in his war, in a war where he sacrificed his own people and destroyed his entire country.”

Wars don’t just “happen” by accident. And coincidences are not always coincidences.

There does seem to be this underline tone of it all being contrived which sells the illusion no one is getting hurt or killed by a country or people—oy was an act of God where people die and are being displaced.

It is all business as usual in the apocalypse.

      This is an important and timely topic.It is very peculiar that Turkey was blocking NATO from taking in more countries and suddenly they are hit with this quake.
      It follows the same line as the United States destroying the NordStream pipelines.

        I saw something in the tech world that floored me recently:

        Look at that circuit pattern closely.

        Does that look like Native American art out West to you?

        Get a computer chip expert to try other Amerindian patterns and see how they work as chips.

        Forget Doug and Dave and crop-circles…

    If her country were wrongly and wrongfully attacked and invaded by Vladimir Putin and Russia, she would probably be demanding her country would be doing the same thing that President Zelensky is doing or trying to do against Putin’s Russia, and hopefully you would too, if it were the United States of America he had attacked.

    Again, what investigation by some credible international organization such as Scottland Yard, or Interpol has concluded who attacked the Nordstream Pipeline, or if the explosion was caused by something else, no matter how remote that possibility may be, and who, if anyone has been convicted for being responsible for its probable explosion, and in what court of competent jurisdiction, and by whom?

    Bypass censorship by sharing this link:

    (Natural News) The chemical weapons gas bomb that was ignited by government authorities in Ohio was, of course, both an act of deliberate terrorism and a crime against humanity and the environment. I spoke with an accredited hazardous materials emergency response expert who told me that these chemicals should never have been set on fire by authorities. (I’m interviewing this expert later this evening and hope to bring you that audio interview tomorrow for full details
