The Day After, a made-for-TV movie that aired on November 20, 1983, is a cautionary tale about the devastating consequences of nuclear war. The film, which was directed by Nicholas Meyer and starred Jason Robards, JoBeth Williams, and Steve Guttenberg, follows the lives of several characters living in the Midwest as they grapple with the aftermath of a full-scale nuclear attack on the United States.
The Day After was a groundbreaking film for a number of reasons. At the time of its release, the Cold War was at its peak, and the threat of nuclear war was a constant fear for many people. The Day After was one of the first films to depict the horrors of nuclear war in such a realistic and devastating way, and it had a profound impact on audiences when it was first broadcast.
One of the most memorable aspects of The Day After is its attention to detail. The film was shot on location in Kansas and Missouri, and the filmmakers went to great lengths to ensure that the film was as realistic as possible. The special effects, which included scenes of nuclear explosions and the aftermath of a nuclear attack, were groundbreaking for their time and helped to convey the true scale of the destruction that would be caused by a nuclear war.
The Day After was also notable for its portrayal of the psychological effects of nuclear war. The film explores the ways in which people cope with the trauma of a nuclear attack, and it shows the deep emotional toll that such an event would take on individuals and communities.
In addition to its powerful portrayal of the devastating consequences of nuclear war, The Day After was also significant for its impact on public discourse. The film sparked a national conversation about the dangers of nuclear weapons and the importance of disarmament, and it played a role in shaping public opinion on these issues.
Despite being made almost 40 years ago, The Day After remains a relevant and powerful film today. Its depiction of the horrors of nuclear war is as timely now as it was when the film was first released, and it serves as a reminder of the importance of working towards a world free of nuclear weapons.
Overall, The Day After is a must-see film for anyone interested in the history of nuclear conflict and the ongoing efforts to prevent nuclear war. Its powerful portrayal of the devastating consequences of nuclear war, combined with its attention to detail and its impact on public discourse, make it a film that continues to resonate with audiences today.

The Pale Blue Dot
The Power to End Civilization
Many have claimed since the beginning of time, "The End is Near!", "Armageddon is nigh!". For centuries you would be excused for laughing this off. However, Mankind has held the power to bring this about for decades now. Hypersonic nukes are the new rage, traveling at Mach 9, squeezing response time down to minutes. This is extremely dangerous.
The Day After is an American television film that first aired on November 20, 1983, on the ABC television network. More than 100 million people, in nearly 39 million households, watched the program during its initial broadcast. With a 46 rating and a 62% share of the viewing audience. It should be watched again, as a reminder to uselessness of these weapons.
The Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union struck fear in the hearts of many over a period of decades. The thought of an all out nuclear war is one of true nightmares. The Cuban Missile Crisis is the closest to nuclear war the world has yet seen. Although there also have been incidents where nuclear war was nearly set off purely by accident, whether due to computer malfunction or mis-interpretation of data. As of late, the situation is not considered exactly safe.
During the Cuban Missile Crisis, leaders of the U.S. and the Soviet Union engaged in a tense, 13-day political and military standoff in October 1962 over the installation of nuclear-armed Soviet missiles on Cuba, just 90 miles from U.S. shores. In a TV address on October 22, 1962, President John F. Kennedy (1917-63) notified Americans about the presence of the missiles, explained his decision to enact a naval blockade around Cuba and made it clear the U.S. was prepared to use military force if necessary to neutralize this perceived threat to national security. Following this news, many people feared the world was on the brink of nuclear war. However, disaster was avoided when the U.S. agreed to Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev’s (1894-1971) offer to remove the Cuban missiles in exchange for the U.S. promising not to invade Cuba. Kennedy also secretly agreed to remove U.S. missiles from Turkey.
In February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened nuclear war if Ukraine is allowed to join NATO.
The Day After, 1983
The horror of these scenes as a teenager in the 1980s was something that was in the back of my mind all the way up until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. There was a small period of hope at that time. Humans have gone quite a few decades without an insane leader [yet] launching a nuclear attack or a rouge computer error causing such. As time marches on, the threat most certainly remains. A list of nuclear war close calls can be found here.
The only saving grace is anyone with a sane mind is aware a nuclear war cannot be won. However, the sanity of humanity is certainly in question. Then you have the terrorist, with a suitcase nuke or similar scenario. We have been lucky so far.
Hypersonic Nuclear Missiles
Russia Claims its New Missile Could Hit U.S. Command Centers in Five Minutes and It 'Breaks Through Any' Defense, Former Submarine Commander Says. The Day After was a depiction of how a nuclear war would play out in the 1980s. Today, there will be little to no warning other than one following world events on the news. An actual strike would quickly lead to utter destruction for all sides and the entire world. Putin has actually threatened this regarding Ukraine. NATO has no care to invade Russia as the world has enough problems on its own. Putin's threats are tiresome, and he should be invited to watch this film as well.

When discovered in 2004, the preliminary orbit for Apophis indicated that it might crash onto earth on April, Friday the 13, 2029. Follow-up observations changed that. Apophis will pass close very close to the earth that day, but NASA says it will miss. How close will Apophis come? Its closest approach will be about 19,400 miles/31,200 kilometers of Earth and be visible to the naked eye. (about one-tenth of the distance between the earth and the moon). Apophis’ longest dimension is nearly 1,500 feet. No object of such size is known to have passed that close to the earth. When nearest to the earth, Apophis ought to appear as a third magnitude star moving about 40 degrees per hour.
This is incredibly close, and will pass underneath some of Earth's satellites.
If an object this size were to strike the earth, the impact would create massively negative effects. The energy released would at least 1,151 megatons of TNT (this is nearly 100,000 times more energy than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima). This is enough to destroy an entire country and would have global impacts. In the case it were to land in a highly populated area such as countries like India, China, or America, it would then kill millions of people within a few minutes. If the impact occurred over water, the tsunami raised would wipe out large areas on all sides of whatever ocean it struck. Some people are concerned that there will be an impact in 2029.
A book, by Thomas Horn, The Wormwood Prophecy, is written about a potential 2029 collision of Apophis with earth.
Where does Wormwood fit in? Revelation 8:10–11 reads
The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter.
One does have to wonder if a government agency can be trusted at this point. The uncertainly surrounding the exact trajectory of asteroid Apophis is because it’s subject to the “Yarkovsky effect.” That describes the tiny effect of the heating of one side of the asteroid by the sun, which over time causes asteroids to slightly change their course. The gravity of the Earth itself could also alter the asteroid's orbit.
Supposedly, researchers are now most concerned by the 2068 fly by of Apophis.
Researchers say there is a 1 in 150,000 chance of striking the Earth in 2068, but the 2029 flyby could still cause a lot of problems because as it streaks by Earth at 19 miles/30 km per second, Apophis will enter the Earth’s sphere of geostationary satellites and could damage or destroy some of them.

The doomsday clock website and press release has become highly politicized. It seems to have strayed from the nuclear weapon threat to Covid-19, pandemics and climate change, among others.
While factions in the United States are rioting, looting, burning businesses down and causing decay from the inside out, all while trying to figure out which bathroom to use, China and Russia have developed hyper-sonic nuclear-capable missiles, which has caught the Defense Department by surprise. China's are hitting Mach 6 and Russia claims to have Mach 9 hyper-sonic missiles respectively. This gives a first-strike capability the United States does not currently possess (or this is being kept top secret). While there is still comfort that no one can win a nuclear war, it is alarming that the United States is behind technologically. Or this could be a play once again, to keep US technological advancements secret.
Russia has also tested and anti satellite weapon on an old and large satellite, causing space debris to encircle the Earth in a very bad location for future space travel. This space junk will linger in orbit for years, potentially colliding with other satellites as well as the International Space Station. The space station crew had to shelter in place as they passed near the debris cloud. We are clearly in a new cold war, which is quickly moving towards being a real kinetic war. Russia has moved 127 thousand troops near Ukraine, and China is also prepping to invade Taiwan. Shelling and small skirmishes are already taking place in Ukraine.
The United States has stated it will stand with Taiwan and Ukraine, but after the Afghanistan disaster, what does that really mean? Early reports are sanctions for Russia coming as early as December 7, 2021. Sanctions will have little to no impact. Biden already granted Russia completion of the Nordstrom 2 pipeline, while shutting the Keystone XL pipeline down in America, with plans to shut even more oil production down in America as winter approaches. How does this make sense?
[Putin] "We have now tested, and successfully, and from the beginning of the year we will be armed with new sea-based hypersonic missiles, Mach 9 [speed]," Putin said.
We MUST pull it together, and lose the false narrative being pushed by the mainstream media and various factions trying to tear the United States apart. Fear mongering about a virus with a 99.9% survival rate among those in good health should not be our focus. Omnicron is the new terror. A new variant of Covid-19 with very, very mild symptoms that include fatigue and a headache for a day or two. These are the early reports from South Africa that Omicron causes mild illness. Countries are already going back into lock down and severe panic over this. Instead of lock downs, why not preach good health and how to help obtain it? It would seem the agenda is to destroy the economy in favor of "The Great Reset". I would submit the true doomsday clock is right here.
Spending Trillions of dollars at the rate the United States has been doing for decades now will lead us to ruin. Both political parties have sold us out. Unfunded liabilities the US Government owes is 161 Trillion, a number that can and never will be paid back. An economic collapse is coming. Although the pandemic has affected many, the death toll is almost always accompanied by underlying health conditions and/or advanced age.
An embarrassing series of events has happened since January 2021.
Let’s just look at the unembellished numbers from a Suffolk University/USA Today poll of registered and its damning evidence: 66% say the country is on the wrong track, 64% hope President Biden does not run for president again in 2024, 59% disapprove of the job he has done so far, and 20% say that the single “most important” thing that Mr. Biden could do in the next 365 days is to “resign, retire or quit.”
There is a list far too long to add here of the failures of this administration. It is beyond pathetic.
Social Media, The Absolute Scourge of the Internet
In 1999, I had such high hopes for the internet. It was and is one of mankind's greatest achievements. All of man's knowledge at the entire world's finger tips. Instead, where the internet once brought people together in its beginnings, it has caused absolute destruction of any semblance of what could be called a relationship between men and women with the exception of the few who have resisted its temptations. It is every man and woman for themselves today, and it is only going to get worse. With all the great accomplishments that have occurred and continue to occur with the internet, the destruction of family and relationships are not one of them. In fact, some claim that social media could cause a civil war within the United States.
Instagram, Tik-Tok, Twitter, Facebook and the like are all sewers of humanity where [some] women get validation from anonymous men daily and [some] men and women hookup daily, whether in a relationship or not. Hookups, secret chats, (or so they think they are secret) happen all the time. Of course this has always gone on, but in today's world, its seconds away, all the time with a device that is more a computer than it is a phone. For many, the device is nearly surgically attached, and one day in the future, may very well be.
As we race toward what could be doomsday, I am reminded of a movie based on the book by Carl Sagan, "Contact". The first scene puts the Earth in to a perspective most people never consider, and how we should give careful consideration to stopping any such "doomsday" event.
Original Article published 09 MARCH 2015 - Doomsday Clock set to 3 Minutes to Midnight
The Doomsday Clock is now two minutes closer to midnight, thanks to unchecked nuclear proliferation.
The hands of the symbolic clock, managed by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists Science and Security Board, were moved forward to 11.57 earlier this week, which means the board thinks “the probability of global catastrophe is very high.” 12.00 signifies the apocalypse.
Originally constructed in 1945 as a predictor of nuclear catastrophe, the clock’s keepers now consider factors like climate change and other scientific or technological threats to humanity as well. The Atomic Scientists Science and Security Board is managed by a board of sponsors that includes 17 Nobel Laureates.
Founded by University of Chicago scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project, The Doomsday Clock has been long considered a metaphor for the vulnerability of the human race.
But the hands of the clock can move forward and backward in time. It was previously set at 3 minutes to midnight in 1984, during a particularly scary moment during the Cold War where communication between the U.S. and the Soviet Union had gone dark. And in 1949, the clock was set at 3 minutes to midnight when the Soviet Union tested their first nuclear device.
The safest point in history seems to have been in 1991, when the clock was at 17 minutes to midnight after the U.S. and Soviet Union agreed to reduce their nuclear arsenals. The closest the Doomsday Clock has ever been to midnight was in 1953, when it reached 2 minutes to midnight after the U.S. tested a H-Bomb for the first time.
Although this site reports on monsters, demons, UFOs and other frightening, and mysterious topics, the scariest monsters may indeed be those whose fingers hover over nuclear missile launch capabilities, and their leaders who command them.
There are obviously a lot of factors that account for the "minutes to midnight" setting. The world today is a far more dangerous place than even the cold war many of us remember in the 1980s. Those living in the 80s at least had the luxury of knowing there were 2 main players, the Soviet Union, and the United States, who had some things to live for and not completely insane, even though we remained at odds during those years. In the eighties, MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) kept things in careful check.
In other words, there is no way to win a nuclear war. Any size strike by one side or the other would result in a full scale retaliatory strike with megaton nuclear weapons releasing unimagined destruction upon both countries and their allies.
Today, this strategy has completely broken down as we live in a world where rouge nations such as North Korea are now known to have a handful of weapons, and the crazed suicidal muslims are striving daily to obtain their own stockpile of nukes, where they will not sit idly. They will be used as soon as they could be obtained.
There are so many flash points of conflict in the world today, it is hard to keep up. Many of these conflicts are unnecessary and mindless, and unfortunately has to do with the international monetary system, and bankers who steal and plot against the rest of the world. Ultimately, the economic situation is the root cause behind the current instability of the world.
Massive changes have taken place just in the last 20 years regarding employment. Automation, robotics, Artificial Intelligence, and computer advancements as well as population explosion have all contributed to fewer, and much lower paying jobs. The few higher paying jobs there are, are now contracted over a certain short period of time, [in America] or are created by a highly skilled worker.
Russians Say They Fear Hunger, Unemployment and Nuclear War January 30, 2015
What do Americans Fear? October 20, 2015
Hiram Maxim, the inventor of the machine gun, declared, "Only a general who was a barbarian would send his men to certain death against the concentrated power of my new gun." But send them they did. In World War One, the machine gun often mowed down tens of thousands of men in a single day.
Yet one is to believe that thousands of nuclear weapons laying around all over the world will never be used.
