I was extremely critical of NORAD moving out of their nuclear bunker complex at Cheyenne Mountain and into Peterson AFB in Colorado Springs, CO. In 2006 Admiral Tim Keating, who commanded both NORAD and the U.S. Northern Command, said the government’s best intelligence “led them to believe a missile attack from China or Russia was very unlikely.”
But it also guaranteed that when NORAD is targeted with nuclear weapons the entire city of Colorado Springs would be destroyed with it because they were now housed in the open at Peterson AFB. Now the Daily Mail surprises us with information that NORAD is moving back to the mountain bunker complex. Strange that we have to learn this through the Brits.

Why IS the US military moving back into ‘Stargate’ base deep under the Rocky Mountains a decade after it was abandoned? The Cheyenne Mountain Complex is one of the icons of the Cold War – a self-contained and sufficient town buried under the Rockies meant to be impervious to a Soviet nuclear barrage.

It was home to the North American Aerospace Command (NORAD), scanning the skies for Russian missiles and the military command and control center of the United States in the event of World War Three. The Cheyenne Mountain Complex is home to more than 1,000 personnel and is able to operate as an underground town for months with fresh water and food. It shut down nearly ten years ago as the threat from Russia seemed to subside, but this week the Pentagon announced that Cheyenne Mountain will once again be home to the most advanced tracking and communications equipment in the United States military.

The shift to the Cheyenne Mountain base in Colorado is designed to safeguard the command’s sensitive sensors and servers from a potential electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, military officers said.

Admiral William Gortney, head of NORAD and Northern Command, said that ‘because of the very nature of the way that Cheyenne Mountain’s built, it’s EMP-hardened.’ ‘And so, there’s a lot of movement to put capability into Cheyenne Mountain and to be able to communicate in there,’ Gortney told reporters. ‘My primary concern was… are we going to have the space inside the mountain for everybody who wants to move in there, and I’m not at liberty to discuss who’s moving in there,’ he said.

I find it hard to believe that our entire space command bought into the phony fall of the Soviet Union—sufficient to leave the safety of Cheyenne Mountain (and at great expense to move). They knew about EMP clear back then. In any case, this is another piece of evidence that the PTB know that eventually there will be a nuclear attack on America.
