How the media separated Nibiru from Planet X from Nemesis
Planet X, like myself, was born in the 1980s. I was almost 4 years old when Thomas O’Toole published his article, headlined Possibly as Large as Jupiter, in The Washington Post.
As John DiNardo correctly noted in this article, The Washington Post has flip-flopped, in the common parlance of our times, on Planet X. Initially, they were prepared to consider the unidentified object as perhaps a dwarf star, a planet as large as Jupiter; or perhaps as a comet, though they were just about prepared to rule out comet.
Here is the quote I am referring to from O’Toole’s well-written article:
“So mysterious is the object that astronomers do not know if it is a planet, a giant comet, a nearby ‘protostar’ that never got hot enough to become a star, a distant galaxy so young that it is still in the process of forming its first stars or a galaxy so shrouded in dust that none of the light cast by its stars ever gets through.”
I presume that “protostar” and “dwarf star” are close enough in meaning to be considered synonymous terms. Certainly, if the late Dr. Harrington, the chief officer of the naval observatory, was correct, then the minute it became clear that Planet X was moving toward Earth, the flip-flop began.
More than that, when it became clear that Planet X was “shepherding” other planets and planetoids, then it became necessary to put out the disinformation campaign and keep the coalescence between Dr. Robert Harrington and Dr. Zechariah Sitchin on the identity of Planet X as Nibiru from reaching the public’s eyes.
Dr. Harrington’s death after meeting and interviewing Sitchin only adds fuel to the fire that Nibiru is Planet X.
More recent discoveries from the Chilean observatories of Sedna have only confirmed the existence of a massive “perturber” (to use the old language) or a “shepherd” (to use newer lingo). This article from The Smithsonian’s Air & Space publication makes it clear that the Caltech astronomers Mike Brown and Konstantin Batygin used a March 2014 issue of Nature to guide them to their discovery of Planet 9:
“When the two astronomers published the announcement, in the journal Nature in March 2014, they noted something odd about 2012VP, Sedna, and 10 other super-distant objects. They were all clustered in an unexpected way; their orbits all crossed the ecliptic plane—the conceptual flat disk around which the eight planets orbit the sun—very close to the spot where they came closest to the sun. So odd was the uniformity that the pair suspected something was causing it; they wrote, ‘[A]n unknown massive perturbing body may be shepherding these objects into these similar orbital configurations.’”
Here is the bait-and-switch: Instead of proclaiming this object “Planet X / Nibiru,” Brown and Katygin dub the gravitational mass “Planet 9.” From Sugarman’s language, it is clear that the mainstream scientific and journalistic community is in lock-step in removing from the public consciousness an object “possibly as large as Jupiter” and replacing it with an object “10 times the size of the Earth”:
“In January 2016, Brown and Batygin published a paper outlining the evidence for a hypothetical Planet 9. They described a world with a mass about 10 times that of Earth and two to four times its diameter. They defined its likely orbital path, postulating that it would orbit the sun every 10,000 to 20,000 years. (By comparison, it takes Pluto just 248 years.) They proposed that, like the solar system’s other giants, it was made up of a rocky, icy core enveloped by gas. They believe it is located in the direction of the Orion constellation, and is currently near its farthest point from the sun—as many as 1,200 astronomical units away (Earth’s distance from the sun, 93 million miles, is one astronomical unit, or AU).”
Here is the distinction: Jupiter is much more massive than just 10 times more than the Earth; and, if Planet X is “possible as large as Jupiter,” then please read these quotations (source):
- “Jupiter’s diameter is 11.2 times larger than Earth. In other words, you could put 11.2 Earths side-by-side to match the diameter of Jupiter.”
- “And Jupiter’s volume is even bigger. It would take 1321.3 Earths to fill up the volume of Jupiter. In terms of surface area, Jupiter is 121.9 times bigger than the Earth. That’s how many Earths could be flattened out to cover the surface of Jupiter.”
- “Jupiter has 317.8 times the mass of the Earth.”
Okay, so in 1984, California Berkeley astronomer Richard Muller suggested that a red dwarf star named Nemesis was responsible for the periodic mass extinctions that had affected Earth. This would be the red dragon (red from iron oxide dust) that is being scrubbed from Google Sky.
Here is a video demonstrating the scrubbing of Red Dragon from the Virgo constellation.
According to this Space.com article:
“In 1984, Richard Muller of the University of California Berkley suggested that a red dwarf star 1.5 light-years away could be the cause of the mass extinctions. Later theories have suggested that Nemesis could be a brown or white dwarf, or a low-mass star only a few times as massive as Jupiter. All would cast dim light, making them difficult to spot.”
Here is the new coalescence between Muller’s suggestion the discovery of Sedna:
“The dwarf planet Sedna lends further credence in the eyes of some to the existence of a companion star for the sun. With an orbit of up to 12,000 years, the planet presents a puzzle to many. Scientists have suggested that a massive object such as a dim star could be responsible for keeping Sedna so far from the sun.”
Of course, Space.com writers suggest that Planet 9 or Nemesis could be responsible for shepherding Sedna:
“Another theory is there is a huge ice giant, nicknamed ‘Planet Nine,’ that is at the edge of our solar system. Researchers Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown (both from the California Institute of Technology) suggested in 2016 that such a body might be stirring up smaller icy bodies in the Kuiper Belt. A search for Planet Nine is ongoing. Notably, Brown was part of the research team that found Sedna and several other icy bodies in the Kuiper Belt, and he was one of the lead advocates for reclassifying Pluto (once considered a planet) to a dwarf planet in 2006.”
Either way, something big–Red Dragon, Nemesis, Nibiru–is coming. It is bringing the Tribulation. It is slinging comets, asteroids and meteors–and trailing moons and planetoids.
