Subject: Sonar Death Tests: To Stun UFOs?
Dear Axiom/Prophets Conferences National and International Subscriber Lists
(all 8,000),
We strongly feel that the following information deserves your attention and
action. These activities of the United States Navy need to be haulted
immediately, and the public needs to know exactly why this is going on.
Take a moment, read the information, and please do what you can.
Robin & Cody Johnson <
Aloha from Hawaii,
As we email this to you a baby whale lies abandoned and dying undoubtedly as
a result of the LFAS testing. It cannot survive without its mother. This is
the second such death in two weeks in the same Hawai'i waters
where the US Navy is testing the Low Frequency Active Sonar.
You have a choice, a Conscious Choice to peacefully protest:
Please email your protest to those on the list below and circulate this
email to everyone you know this week.
The goal this week is to email 500,000 protests. Your voice can contribute
to make it happen. It concerns the lively hood of the whales and dolphins
that are being killed by the US Navy in the waters of Hawai'i and waters
around the planet. It concerns the livelyhood of our oceans, the mammals
and fish that inhabit them and ultimately our planet.
This is a regional and international issue. Please send protests to the
media, your local politicians and congressmen. Some suggested email
addresses are included below.
The Plot Thickens:
The last week with the LFAS is beginning to read like an excellent script
for a movie. Hey you folks in Hollywood listen up. It has all the topical
flavors with personal and political twists that so easily take us in another
direction and mask the real issues at hand - the livelyhood of life on this
This is a lesson of discernment for all of us to take a stand and to be
heard, you can make a difference here right now by sending out your protests.
Last week thousands of email and fax protests went out. This week it needs
to be hundreds of thousands. The killing has to stop. And thanks for your
efforts last week it has brought these issues to many peoples attention. By
forwarding this appeal last week thousands have petitioned our local
politicians all the way to the Vice President and the President of the
United States.
But sadly that was not enough, a baby whale lies abandoned and dying because
the US Navy has got permission to kill our whales and apparently 200
dolphins in the Mediterranean. What does it take to put a stop to
this? Hopefully this week's goal of 500,000 email protests will have them
sit up and take action.
The events in the last week have brought news that the LFAS is a much larger
problem than locally in Hawai'i. As reported in the Guardian newspaper
March 3rd out of England and also in the Sydney daily newspaper, 13 Cuvier's
beaked whales were found stranded off Greece the next day after LFAS
broadcast by the US Navy. And in the last few weeks (I am not sure of the
time period) 200 dolphins have been found blown up in the Mediterranean sea.
For more information on source materials for the above go to
This is very serious business. Read the following and petition your local
media and politicians.
The Sound Equation:
Last week I tracked down Sir Peter Guy Manners' assistant Dr Dudley Finch,
they were both in Florida treating patients and presenting their work to the
medical establishment. Through their expertise they can predict precisely
the type of damage that is done with LFAS sound. They are the only experts
in the world (that I know) who have many decades of medical experience of
the use of sound in altering the physiology of living tissue. If you have
any sound clips of the LFAS please forward to me for their analysis.
Sir Peter wrote:
"...the likely effects (of LFAS) on marine animals in our opinion could be
disastrous, causing cell and tissue damage as well as effecting the brain
and nervous system"
For more information on the "sound equation" go to
Our scientists and medical experts need to contact Sir Peter because the
sound does not necessarily effect the living tissue in ways that can be
conventionally measured or observed and will not always show up in
autopsies. It effects the energy and the structure of the cells. Hence the
whales are beaching sometimes, as in the Greece incident, alive
probably from lower intensities exposures and at other times blown apart
from higher intensities as in the recent case of the dolphins.
One would normally assume that the louder the sound the worse the damage.
However, that is not always the case. It is the combination of the
frequencies that do the damage, or if used appropriately good. Sir Peter
can break up tumors non surgically with sound, or in my work we use sound
vibroacoustically through the body to relieve stress. I believe the Navy
has this data and is classified, not only could they use the sound to knock
out say the electrical system of a submarine, but by switching frequencies
and depending on the distance to the sub they could kill everyone on board,
or maim or stun. Just like a dolphin or some whales stun their prey with
their sonar. Except the US Navy can broadcast at 230 dB, 10,000 times
louder than a 747 taking off.
Last Saturday March 7th we heard the LFAS sound broadcast at hourly
intervals for several seconds. We heard three broadcasts. That day, we
were about 10 miles (my guestimate) from the sending vessel so the levels
were below the local background levels of the whales singing and grunting
around our boat. We did get a recording, and I will post it as soon as I
get a copy. They were using frequencies around middle "C" and stepping up
the frequencies. There appeared to be some change in the whale's sounds, if
anything their song activity appeared to increase after the 8(?) second
broadcast. However, you can be assured with all the public interest they
are being very mindful about the power and the frequencies they use.
The earliest report of the Navy using the LFAS dates back to the early
1980's so you can bet that they have compiled lots of data already, so why
the testing in Hawai'i?
It occurs to us that the testing here is to determine the thresholds they
can broadcast to stun and enemy sub or UFO or whatever the situation may be.
They are using the birthing waters here to test those thresholds and show to
the conservationists, environmentalists and research folks that LFAS is
safe, but the dying baby whale tells us its a lie.
So again the time for a public outcry is right NOW!
Delay Tactics:
Last week there was a continuation of the hearing in Honolulu brought
forward by lawyer Paul Achitoff for the Earth Justice Legal Defense Fund.
Presently, Judge Helen Gillmor is considering her action and will make a
decision this week. It is already too late. Have you ever looked into the
eye of a dying baby whale?
So again the time for your protest is right NOW!!
These political delay tactics and maneuvers are all so common. We urge you
to send another round of protests to the addresses below, it made a huge
difference last week and we urge you to follow up again today...take action
right now.
The New York times is considering an article on the LFAS and may be out
today, swimmers have been in the water around the sending vessel last week
and now the coast guard cutter is hovering around to harass the protesters.
It is getting nasty. Is it going to take the death of a human to get the
public attention? Hopefully not.
Your email protest could prevent all of that and peacefully resolve the
issue now.
What can you do?
The time is NOW. Send protests to the media, your local politicians and
environmentalist groups. Then, send this email to everyone you know. In
the header of your email or fax put "Whales and Dolphins dead and dying from
And words to the effect:
"This is an urgent appeal to stop the US Navy killing of whales and dolphins
with LFAS. Recent reports in the European press have linked the US Navy to
killing whales and possibly 200 dolphins in the Mediterranean.
Please stop this and the current LFAS testing in the Hawaiin waters".
