The Chemtrail Conspiracy
By Jim Redden <>
Denise Gordon watches the sky.
Denise is an esthetician, a skin care therapist who gives facials and other skin treatments to clients throughout the Portland metropolitian area. She spends a lot of time behind the wheel of her car, driving from appointment to appointment. Three summers ago, Denise saw four airplanes laying down a grid pattern of contrails in the bright, clear sky. As the day went on, she noticed that the contrials stayed in the air and spread out, eventually covering much of the sky with a thin, brownish haze. When she looked at the sun, it appeared to be surrounded by a colorful corona.
"The sun looked like it was shining through an oil slick, or a sick rainbow," she remembers.
The same thing happened a few days later. And then a few days after that. Denise didn't think much about it, though, until she was returning from an appointment late one night and happened to be listening to "Sightings," a UFO-oriented talk show on KTOK AM (1080) hosted by Jeff Rense, a former investigative reporter. The guest that night was a man named Will Thomas. Denise was shocked when Thomas started describing the exact same thing she'd been seeing in the sky. Thomas called the grid-pattern lines "chemtrails," and he claimed they were a top secret government experiment to vaccinate the American people against anthrax and other biological weapons.
Then Thomas shocked Denise again. He said the chemtrails were making people across the country sick with flu-like symptoms that lasted for weeks or months. Although Denise had not been sick herself, many of her clients were complaining about the exact same symptoms which Thomas was describing.
"Most of them were saying things like, 'I just can't shake this cold' or 'My allergies are getting worse,'" she says. "And a lot of them were telling me all their friends were sick, too."
Denise has tried talking to her clients about the chemtrails, but they all look at her like she's nuts. "They think I've just been listening to too much wacko radio," she says.
But in fact, chemtrails have become an international controversy since Denise first noticed the strange lines in the sky three summers ago. Dozens of Internet websites about the issue have been launched, most featuring photos from all over the world showing the same strange patterns in the sky. Many of the sites carry reports by self-proclaimed "chemtrail experts" offering different (and frequently conflicting) explanations for their origins. Some, like Thomas, believe they carry some form of vaccine. Others say the spraying is a New World Order plot to intentionally make people too sick to fight the coming One World Government. Still others say the thin haze is designed to fight global warming by blocking some of the sun's rays on hot days. Whatever the case, people all over the globe are flooding these sites with first-hand reports of their own personal experiences.
And some of the most dedicated sky watchers live in the Portland. Dozens of them e-mailed Rense on June 4, complaining that the metropolitan area was being choked by chemtrails. All the reports said essentially the same thing - the day started out clear and sunny, but ended up hazy and overcast after several planes laid down a steady stream of chemtrails throughout the morning.
"I want to report MASSIVE contrail spraying in Portland OR," wrote Derek R. Sims. "It looked like a huge spine with all the nerve endings shooting out,
up and down the trail. I have been sneezing uncontrollably, [but] I have no allergies, and am not sick."
"The city of Portland is completely blanketed with the chemclouds - it is solid," wrote a woman who only identified herself as Deborah. "When I got home there were three new trails above my house. I'm telling you Jeff, we are socked in with chemclouds."
"FYI and listeners, chemtrails are back," wrote Cindy Carpenter. "I came down with the worst headache I have had in years, and still have it."
"I, too, live in the Portland area and saw all of this going on, wrote Eric Lynchedl. "I mentioned to my wife that by noon we would not be able to see the blue sky. As sure as can be, the sky was covered with a layer of thin, white spray. We also noticed a rainbow-like ring around the sun."
But not everyone is content to merely gripe. Portlander Sardar Khalsa contributes to the Sierra Times, an on-line environmental magazine. He's working on a story about the spraying to run in the near future.
"People had been telling me about these chemtrails, but I didn't believe they existed until I saw them for myself about six months ago," he says. "They are definately not normal contrails. They don't come out of the engines or off the wing tips, but are being sprayed from under the planes."
Khalsa's research has convinced him the spraying is being done by U.S. Air Force planes. Although the military denies anything is going on, he says he's figured out where the planes are coming from.
"The West Coast has been divided into northen and southern regions," Khala says. "The north includes Portland, and the planes either come from McCord Air Force base near Seattle or the base in Klamath Falls. Edwards Air Force base in California provides the planes for the southern region."
Khalsa doesn't claim to know what the planes are spraying, though. He's heard from people who say that it sometimes "snows cobwebs" after the planes fly overhead. He's read that pesticides and even human blood cells have been detected in the material. But he hasn't come to any conclusions yet.
"I can't tell you what it is, and I can't tell you why it is," Khalsa says. "But I can tell you I've seen many days which start out clear and end up looking like Los Angeles in the haze."
Khalsa and several of the other sky watchers say they've called the local news reporters and begged them to do stories on the chemtrails, to no avail.
"I've left messages when the spraying's going on, and nobody's even called me back," he says.
But KGW-TV weatherman Jack Coppell actually acknowledged the sky looked unusual on June 4. "Many people having been calling us and asking us about this," he said as the station broadcast a picture of that day's solar corona. "This phenomenon is known as a Solar Halo, and is normally caused by ice crystals provided by high cirrus clouds. Since there are no high cirrus clouds, this is highly unusual."
The lack of corporate news coverage has many sky watchers convinced the government is censoring all news on the chemtrails.
"Like millions of other Americans, all I can do is keep my fingers crossed that our government's intent behind this is not entirely malicious," Michael Goodspeed wrote in a June 4 e-mail to the Sightings website.
"I just never dreamed ole Uncle Sam and all her boys in D.C. could do this to us. See how life just doesn't mean anything anymore," wrote Cindy Carpenter.
Paul xxxxx agrees. A local computer consultant, he hasn't made up his mind whether the chemtrails are an attempt to vaccinate the population, control the weather or fight global warming. But he says that something has to be done about the chemtrails, or he's leaving.
"I'll tell you this - I've got a two-year-old son and if this doesn't stop, I'm going to move," says xxxxx. "He's already getting respiratory problems."
The only trouble is, xxxxxx doesn't know where to go. He doesn't know where they're not spraying.

To Jeff:
Thanks for your website, as it is now the lifeline all of us need to accomplish a new objective...To Survive.
This is what I discussed with Will Thomas: The whole issue of chemtrails is especially insidious for one primary reason: SECRECY. So. what is the big deal about spraying if it is to protect us all? Why keep it quiet? After all, it is just a matter of time until everyone is aware of what's going on. Just look outside every day and after a while, it becomes an obvious feature in the sky: 'X' marks the spot!
I know how many of you are feeling, I have felt the same way. And here is what I have found out: What is the purpose of keeping secrets? So someone else will not find out something we do not want them to know. And why? Because there is a PLAN to use the information in such a way to benefit the Holder of the Secret. And NOT to benefit YOU. And that, my friend, is the sorrowful and dreadful reality we must come to terms with.
Chemtrails are an Act of War against masses perpetrated by a group of our fellow humans. Freedom is being overridden, individual sovereignty is being overridden, and participation by choice is not even a consideration. And what further frustrates the situation: we really cannot do much about it without resorting to overt confrontation; and confrontation would have to be supported by a large number of the population to have any affect at all.
To anyone who reads this note, may I suggest that you give some serious thought about the future of life as we know it: its value, its quality, its very survival, and then make a dedicated commitment to yourself that you will do whatever it takes to protect all you hold dear...because we are now in a War Zone we did not create and now must participate in if we plan to survive. This is a tough reality, a tough analysis, and the line drawn in the sand of life.
