The Doomsday Maps Of The World And The Billionaire Escape Plans

Published

In 2017, a detailed Forbes report was published on what some of the world’s wealthiest individuals have purchased, and what it may mean for future cataclysmic events and where the safest places on Earth may be in such an event.

The article suggests that an asteroid impact may be the most serious threat to life on Earth. According to Forbes:

“While smaller asteroids can do great damage on a local scale, experts think that space rocks must be at least 0.6 miles wide to threaten human civilization. NASA scientists estimate that they have found at least 90 percent of these enormous, near-Earth asteroids, and none of them pose a threat for the future.

I spoke with Professor Donald L. Turcotte, an expert in planetary geology at the University of California Davis, Earth and Planetary Science Department, he tells me that the predictions of earthquakes causing a planetary shift and coastal flooding is for the most part nonsense. However, he did say it is far more likely an asteroid hit would cause a polar shift. This could ultimately lead to cataclysmic change and a map similar to Scallions original vision.”

The claims made are that many of the richest families on Earth have been purchasing large amounts of arable farmland all over the world. All of this property seems to follow a theme of being away from coastal areas, and in areas that promote self survival, farming, and coal mining for energy.

Continuing from Forbes:

“It appears that dry territories in the United States such as Montana, New Mexico, Wyoming and Texas are all very popular regions for the wealthiest individuals. Billionaires such as John Malone (currently the largest landowner in America, owns 2,200,000 acres including Wyoming and Colorado), Ted Turner (2,000,000 acres in Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico and North Dakota), Philip Anschultz (434,000 acres in Wyoming), Amazon’s Jeff Bezos (400,000 acres in Texas) and Stan Kroenke (225,162 acres in Montana) all have amassed major land. Upon further research, many billionaires are preparing for future escape plans with “vacation homes” in remote locations. Many of them also have their private planes ready to depart at a moment’s notice.

Billionaire Bill Gates recently acquired 28,000 acres in Arizona to create his own city called Belmont. According to the company announcement; “Belmont will create a forward-thinking community with a communication and infrastructure spine that embraces cutting-edge technology, designed around high-speed digital networks, data centers, new manufacturing technologies and distribution models, autonomous vehicles and autonomous logistics hubs.” The company details the plans including; 3,800 acres for office, commercial and retail space, 470 acres for public schools and there are plans for 80,000 residential units. “Belmont will transform a raw, blank land into a futuristic city built around a flexible infrastructure model” added Belmont Properties.”

If an asteroid struck the planet or something like that, what might the world look like? According to what are described as “several prognosticators and much criticized theorists,” here are some maps that show how the world might look.

AFRICA

They say Africa might be divided into three parts, with the great Nile River significantly widening. From the Mediterranean Sea toward Gabon, a new waterway would split the area. Cairo would basically be gone, and new land would arise in the Arabian Sea. Lake Victoria would merge with Lake Nyasa and flow into the Indian Ocean.

ASIA

It was reported that Asia, a heavily seismic region would have the most severe changes. From the Philippines to Japan land would disappear, continuing further north.

The Pacific Plate, in the event of shifting nine degrees, would cause the islands of Japan to sink into the ocean mostly. Taiwan and most of Korea would also be gone. For hundreds of miles, the coastal region of China would be pushed inland.

INDIA

India would be fairly okay in such an event. Due to the elevation of the country lowering as a result of extreme land buckling, the Indian people might be told to go toward the Himalayas, to Tibet and Nepal, or the higher mountains.

ANTARCTICA

This is kind of hard to believe, but it has been claimed that in such a global event, Antarctica could become fertile, soil rich territory suitable for farming. From the Antarctic Peninsula to Tierra del Fuego, east toward South Georgia Island new land could be created.

AUSTRALIA

In such an event, Australia would lose almost 25 percent of its land to coastal flooding. Adelaide would become a new sea, and the Gibson and Simpson deserts could surprisingly become fertile, farming land.

NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand could actually benefit from such an event supposedly, it would grow in size, join Australia, and become very fertile.

EUROPE

Europe, like Asia wouldn’t take such a situation very well. The tectonic plate beneath Northern Europe could collapse, to sink Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland beneath the sea to only leave hundreds of tiny islands.

Most of the UK, from the English Channel to Scotland, would sink into the ocean. Major cities like London or Birmingham may remain due to the elevation perhaps.

Russia would be separated from the rest of Europe by a completely new sea formed by the combination of the Caspian, Kara, Black and Baltic Seas. The Forbes article about this continues, “Certain areas of western Turkey will go under water, creating a new coastline from Istanbul to Cyprus. Much of central Europe will sink and most of the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the Baltic Sea will be completely lost underwater.

The majority of France will go under water, leaving an island in the area surrounding Paris. A completely new waterway will then separate Switzerland from France, creating a line from Geneva to Zurich. Italy will be entirely divided by water. Venice, Naples, Rome and Genoa will sink below the rising sea. Higher elevations will be created as new islands. New lands will rise from Sicily to Sardinia.”

NORTH AMERICA

CANADA

In this event, the Northwest region would see certain areas pushed in nearly 200 miles. A “survival center” might thrive in regions of Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Alberta.

UNITED STATES

If the North American Plate buckled, almost 150 islands would be all that is left of California. The new West Coast would consist of Nebraska, Wyoming, and Colorado.

The massive Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Seaway would join and then join with the Mississippi River all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. From Florida to Maine, all coastal areas would be flooded.

MEXICO

Some parts of Mexico would remain tall, but most coastal areas would be flooded deep inland. Baja California would become islands like California, and the Yucatan Peninsula wouldn’t be in good shape.

CENTRAL AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN

Central America wouldn’t be in great shape, and a new waterway would eventually become present from Salinas, Ecuador to the Bay of Honduras.

SOUTH AMERICA

Unfortunately intense volcanic and seismic activity would probably strike South America. Brazil, Venezuela, and Colombia would suffer from flooding. A huge sea could be created out of the Amazon Basin, while Peru and surprisingly high elevation Bolivia could sink.

However, a huge landmass could join up with Chile in this event.

Bernard Marr has always been interested in how the economy works. After the financial crash of 2008, Marr began to learn as much as he could about alternative currencies and Austrian economics. Marr has also become an expert in cryptocurrency and the blockchain industry, and continues to study its impact on global finance.

14 Soldiers Were Photographed Before, During, And After War

A Filmmaker by the name of Lalange Snow shot a photo series that captures how different a person looks before, during and after going to war. Snow photographed and interviewed 14 members of 1st Battalion from The Royal Regiment of Scotland multiple times through their process of going to war in Afghanistan. Close up photos were taken of the soldiers faces just before they left for duty, as well as three months after deployment while they were in the middle of the war, and then again one final time days after they came back home from battle.

Snow’s series is called “We Are The Not D-ead,” and the purpose of the project was to show the physical and psychological toll that war takes on a person, just by showing their face at different stages in the journey.

A similar theme is echoed through many of the photos, with the enlistees appearing somewhat timid and nervous. The photos showing the soldiers in the midst of war are very cold and serious when compared with the others, while the final photos show a mixture of relief and regret.

The photos can be seen below:

Interviews with the soldiers in the photo series showed that they lived through some very terrible things, and many of them had regrets about their time in the military. It is extremely common for soldiers to come back from war with P-TSD, a psychological condition that affects people who are exposed to extreme and violent situations. In the case of the soldiers interviewed for this project, many of them came back home and struggled with mental health and readjusting to life as a civilian.

In the interviews, the soldiers also expressed doubt in their mission, and sympathy for many of the people who they killed in the line of duty. Many of them said that they don’t even know what they were fighting for or why they were there, halfway around the world. This sentiment is common among many veterans, who saw the carnage and senselessness of war up close and personal.

The United States and allied NATO countries have been at war in Afghanistan since October 7th, 2001.

There have been unconfirmed rumors that the Trump administration was planning to pull out of the Afghanistan war, but many of his advisors are warning strongly against it.

In early September, nine former senior U.S. diplomats issued a press release through the website of the military-linked think tank The Atlantic Council, urging the Trump administration to stay in Afganistan to prevent the current civil war from spiraling out of control, NBC reported. The press release warned that pulling the United States military out of the region could have a catastrophic impact on the entire middle east and allow ISIS to develop a stronghold.

The rumors of a possible troop pullout came from US presidential envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, who claimed that the United States and the Taliban had come to an agreement about the withdrawal of 5,000 American troops within 135 days. The envoy said that the agreement was simply awaiting the approval of US President Donald Trump.

Father Shoots Man Who Kidnapped & Raped His Son, On National TV

Published

In case you missed it: In 1984, a man named Gary Plauché killed a pedophile who kidnapped and raped his son, Jody. Considering the circumstances, the judge and jury showed leniency with Plauché and he was given a seven-year suspended sentence with five years of probation and 300 hours of community service, and he ended up serving no time in jail. The case was extremely controversial at the time, with many people arguing whether or not it was justifiable for Plauché to take matters into his own hands.

Plauché and his son Jody lived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. When Jody was 11-years-old, between 1983 and 1984, he began taking karate lessons with a 25-year-old instructor named Jeffrey Doucet. At some point in their time together, Doucet began molesting the young boy. The abuse lasted for about a year until Doucet kidnapped Jody and took him to a motel in California in February of 1984. Police eventually caught up with the Doucet after he allowed Jody to make a phone call from the hotel to call his family.

On March 16th, 1984, Doucet was flown to Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport to prepare for his trial. Doucet was still in police custody and after he landed in Baton Rouge, he was led through the airport in handcuffs by a team of police. Plauché was waiting for Doucet with a gun in the airport, after getting a tip from a local news reporter about the flight schedule.

Plauché was waiting in the airport terminal near television crews and speaking on a payphone as all of the reporters were waiting for the kidnapper to land. He was wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses so no one would recognize him and prevent him from carrying out his mission.

As soon as Plauché saw Doucet, he took out his gun and fired a single shot, directly at the right side of Doucet’s head. In videos of the incident, Plauché can be seen firing the shot before he is restrained by officers who removed the gun from his hand and arrested him. Many of the police on the scene instantly recognized the shooter as the victim’s father and can be heard asking “Gary, why? Why, Gary?”

Doucet was taken to the hospital but died the next day from his injuries.

Plauché was initially charged with second-degree murder, but agreed to a plea bargain in which he pleaded no contest to manslaughter. He received a seven-year suspended sentence, with five years of probation and 300 hours of community service, which he completed in 1989. He ended up spending no serious time in jail aside from his initial time served. Plauché’s defense team argued that he was driven to a temporarily psychotic state after learning of the abuse of his son.

In August 2019, Jody Plauché released his book “Why, Gary, Why?”: The Jody Plauché Story, which details the case from his perspective. Gary Plauché suffered a stroke in 2011 and passed away in 2014 at a nursing home after another stroke, at the age of 68.

What do you think? Did Plauché do the right thing? Should he have spent time in prison?

Man Used Internet Registry to Track down and Beat up Pedophiles

A 43-year-old man, Jason Vukovich was sentenced to 23 years in prison, in February of 2018, for numerous assault and robbery charges. However, many people believe that Vukovich is actually a vigilante hero because all of his victims were pedophiles.

At one time, Vukovich called himself an “avenging angel seeking justice,” but has since shown regret for his crimes. Vukovich will be eligible to apply for parole once he’s served six years of his sentence.

It was revealed in court that Vukovich was a victim of abuse himself. In his testimony, he said that he was sexually and physically abused by his stepfather as a child. Vukovich now says that the rampage of revenge was not worth it. He now says that he takes “full responsibility for his actions.”

According to the charges, Vukovich found three different men through his state’s online sex offender registry list. This rampage took place during five days of violence in June of 2016. Vukovich reportedly knocked one of the targets unconscious by hitting him in the head with a hammer. He also robbed the man, going so far as to steal his laptop and his truck.

Prosecutors say that Vukovich had a notebook that contained a hit list with the names of pedophile targets, including his victims, Charles Albee, Andres Barbosa, and Wesley Demarest.

Superior Court Judge Erin Marston told him during his sentencing that “vigilantism is not something that we accept in America.”

Marston pointed out that the men who were hunted down and attacked in this case may have been guilty of terrible crimes, but they had already paid their debts to society and were required by law to keep their names on the registry.

In exchange for his guilty plea, prosecutors decided to drop over a dozen charges. In a five page letter to Anchorage Daily News, Vukovich made an emotional plea for other people to not turn to violence as he has.

“If you have already lost your youth, like me, due to a child abuser, please do not throw away your present and your future by committing acts of violence. There is no place for vigilante justice in an ordered society. I thought back to my experiences as a child and felt the overwhelming desire to act. I took matters into my own hands and assaulted three pedophiles,” Vukovich said in his letter.

I began my life sentence many, many years ago, it was handed down to me by an ignorant, hateful, poor substitute for a father. I now face losing most of the rest of my life due to a decision to lash out at people like him. To all those who have suffered like I have, love yourself and those around you, this is truly the only way forward.” the letter added.

In another interview, Vukovich insisted that he was not proud of his actions, and does not want to be celebrated.

“I’m far from perfect — a flawed and imperfect individual like everyone else. However, it’s important to me that someone else who was born and raised in Alaska who had a similar upbringing doesn’t end up with this outcome because quite candidly, it sucks,” he said in an interview with the newspaper.

Ember Tilton, Vukovich’s attorney, says that he is a person who needs psychological treatment, not prison.

“I don’t think he needs to be punished. He’s already been punished. This whole thing started out as the punishment of a child who didn’t deserve to be treated in that way,” Tilton said.

Criminals do not take kindly to pedophiles, who are often targets for vigilantes, especially in prison. Last week, we reported that a notorious pedophile faced street justice while behind bars at a prison in Milan, Michigan. 40-year-old Christian Maire was sentenced to 40 years in prison for running a child exploitation and pornography ring.

However, the inmates at the prison decided that death was the proper penalty for his crimes. The medical examiner determined that Maire died of multiple stab wounds and blunt force trauma to the head. The incident is being investigated as a homicide, but no suspects in the case have been announced.

It is true that society would get very messy if everyone took justice into their own hands. However, the actions that some of these vigilantes take are understandable, considering that the law often lets these predators fall through the cracks.

In another recent story we reported on, a pedophile in the UK managed to avoid jail time after the third time of getting caught with a large stockpile of child abuse images and videos. On the final time he was caught, there were over a million files on his hard drive.
