The Royal Janitor
When Miriam beheld the people climbing the stairs to the Jordon Schnitzer Museum, she let go of Victoria’s hand, skipped across the grass, and bounded up the steps – four at a time! Her entrance was like Nureyev flying across the stage. She was an escapee from Botticelli’s Primavera. People gasped! They thought she was part of a show. She was the star ballerina and the Constantine Christian Nudist Camp where she was homeschooled. This was her first encounter with an institution of higher learning.
As I – FORSAW! The Ghost Fleet – is here! What I did not see, was this fleet is made up of Un-manned Naval Drone Ships. Brillant! No need of bunks and food for the crew. No limes to keep them from getting scurvy. Sink one, and there is no loss of life, or rescue of the crew. An officer with a remote control can sink – many enemy ships! Even – a woman can sink a battleship! It will be – more than a game! A very tuned in team – can wreck havoc!
Above are two models that I used for my James Bond book…The Royal Janitor. At the top is Victoria Rosemond Bond. Below her is…Miriam Starfish Christling…who is a very lethal and very crazed Christian Neo-Hippie, who teaches her boss how to Remote View, a gift she claims God gave to Jonah. As a mathematical genius, and Crazed Christian, she claims she was born to spot incoming comets. She is an expert in the martial art of Icelandic Bone Breaking. She titles herself..
“a First Class Bone Crusher!”
“It says here your parents were Hippies – and, you are a Hippie, who I believe are against violence?”
“Yeah – right! Don’t make me laugh! My parents escaped allllllll of their inhibitions – through math! I was brought up on The Math of Pi. I killed many people – who committed Math Sins. Jesus was a Math Wizard who could raise the dead – using math. He didn’t die for our sins, but, our Math Mistakes. It’s just fine to help people die for their poor match.”
“Have I made…..math mistakes….in your opinion?”
“No comment! I am your bodyguard. I am programmed to die protecting your mathematical equation, such as it is.”
For over five years I get newsfeed on James Bond. I belong to two Bond Facebook groups. Occasionally I will post, this….
“I already got my Bond, and she’s a woman. I already got a plot, and my female spies – are on the job!”
I founded Marin Shipmates and am wondering about the new ship named ‘Mariner’. Consider China’s and Russia’s presence in Africa.
The Mariner is one of four Overlord USVs the Navy ordered, although only the third fielded as the last one is still under construction. The Mariner’s two sister ships, the Nomad and Ranger
“The plan calls for expanding the overall force from approximately 300 combat ships to 523. Of that fleet, 150 ships are intended to be uncrewed. The “ghost fleet” portion would work hand-in-hand with the rest of the combat ships, just without a large crew needed, which might help the Navy given the ongoing recruitment and morale issues.”
With the sun finally set on Daniel Craig’s franchise-altering tenure as James Bond, fans of the storied spy franchise are clamoring to know who will be the next performer to step into 007’s stylish shoes. But the answer is far from obvious, and it’s an awfully crowded field of candidates. (After all, if you’re a British heartthrob with a certain degree of notoriety, chances are you’re in the running for the role.) But where you fall in the taxonomy of Bond wannabes is bigger than just fan chatter—in fact, it’s the subject of an entire cottage industry of gamblers and betting houses, who have been gaming the odds on who will succeed Craig ever since he announced his departure.
U.S. officials are reportedly investigating a woman who allegedly claimed to be a member of the famed Rothschild family during visits to Mar-a-Lago, where she met former President Donald Trump and mingled with members of his inner circle.
Former President Donald Trump on Monday took time off from melting down over the FBI executing a search warrant at his home to seize classified documents to demand that he be installed as commander-in-chief of the United States—22 months after he decisively lost the 2020 race.
The Navy’s “ghost fleet” is growing
Nicholas Slayton – Yesterday 10:43 AM
This past week the Navy christened a new ship in the fleet: the unmanned surface vessel the Mariner. The ceremony at the U.S. Naval Academy marked another milestone in the Navy’s attempt to test and expand its autonomous capacity.

It is the latest so-called “ghost ship” to join the Navy at sea. The Mariner is one of four Overlord USVs the Navy ordered, although only the third fielded as the last one is still under construction. The Mariner’s two sister ships, the Nomad and Ranger, participated this summer in the Rim of the Pacific international training exercise. It was one of the biggest deployments of an uncrewed ship yet.
The Navy recently released the 2022 edition of the Chief of Naval Operations Navigation Plan, its roadmap and vision for how the Navy will look in 2035. The plan calls for expanding the overall force from approximately 300 combat ships to 523. Of that fleet, 150 ships are intended to be uncrewed. The “ghost fleet” portion would work hand-in-hand with the rest of the combat ships, just without a large crew needed, which might help the Navy given the ongoing recruitment and morale issues.
That’s where ships like the Mariner factor in. They’re early research and development ships. They’ll serve at sea, but the idea for now is to test how the software functions and how these vessels can be improved on to meet that 2035 goal. As for how these kinds of ships will be used, the Navy has said they’ll serve multiple purposes, but the autonomous nature of the vessels means they can also allow the Navy to carry out operations without diverting sailors from bigger tasks.
“We can take two of our USVs and go out and do multi-vessel ops … and not necessarily have to take [a destroyer] off of actual fleet operations to go do that,” Rear Adm. Casey Moton, who works on unmanned programs, said during a tour of the ship this week, Breaking Defense reported.
Although the Mariner and other Overlord USVs are technically uncrewed and run on software, it’s not exactly designed to exclude sailors. The Overlord USVs have crews of six, with most features though being automated. Breaking Defense reported that the ship even has a big red button that can turn off the software control and let the ship’s captain take over operations, should a need arise. Think of it as where many “self-driving” cars are currently at, where there is a manual control option.
The USV Mariner is currently set to wrap up testing and then join other ships in California in the next fiscal year.
The United Nations nuclear watchdog mission is set to arrive at the Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia power plant later this week, offering hope for progress even as the two warring sides exchanged new accusations of shelling around the complex in southern Ukraine.
“The day has come,” Rafael Grossi, the head of the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency, said in a tweet early Monday, announcing that a team was “on its way” after weeks of negotiations about getting nuclear inspectors access to the site near the conflict’s front lines.
“We must protect the safety and security of Ukraine’s and Europe’s biggest nuclear facility,” he said.
The mission, which will be led by Grossi, will assess physical damage to the plant, determine how well its safety systems are functioning, evaluate working conditions for its staff and perform any urgent safeguard activities, the IAEA said in a separate tweet.
Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula, called the land of glaciers and volcanoes, is home to two erupting volcanoes: Klyuchevskaya and Shiveluch. Both are on the central eastern side of the peninsula, with Shiveluch to the north, and Klyuchevskaya to the south.
Why China’s response to US warships in Taiwan Strait surprised analysts (msn.com)
On Sunday, the US Navy sent
two guided-missile cruisers through the strait, which China now claims as its “internal waters.” The US and others maintain the strait is international waters under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.
It was the first time in at least four years the US Navy had sent two cruisers through the strait, said Collin Koh, research fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore, who has been keeping a database on the transits.

After I posted my last post, I turned on CNN and heard about Admiral McRaven say Trumped is destroying our nation from within. Alas, Victoria Bond’s dream of the Ghost Fleet – has come true!
There is no doubt I am a prophet. How I do it needs to be studied. I am a untapped assets to my Country.
President Donald Trump needs to step up and provide America with the leadership it needs — or else someone better suited should take over as commander in chief, according to retired Adm. William McRaven.
McRaven, who oversaw the Navy SEAL raid that killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in 2011, said the rhetoric and acts he witnessed at a change of command ceremony at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, and an annual gala for the Office of Strategic Services Society reminded him “why our future may be in peril.”
“What struck me was the stark contrast between the words and deeds heralded at those events — and the words and deeds emanating from the White House,” McRaven wrote in an op-ed Thursday published in the New York Times.
The change of command ceremony, between two generals McRaven said he served with for 20 years, portray solid character and understand the gravity of their responsibility leading their soldiers and had confidence in American values they have defended during their careers.
“They had faith that these values were worth sacrificing everything for — including, if necessary, their lives,” said McRaven, a SEAL who led Joint Special Operations Command before becoming the commander of U.S. Special Operations Command in 2011. He retired in 2014.
Irene Victoria Easton-Christensen……The Face that launched a thousand ships.
These meteors may be manmade, or, man-driven? Has a secret meteor war broke out? Our President talked about creating a Star Strike Force. My fictional characters may have been created on a dual planet via Symmetry. I am their conduit-messenger. Note the spelling of Kristensen that I morph into Christling. I had forgotten about the double mobis circle in ROSATOM that is key in solving the mystery of Adam’s Rib that I turned into a new religion, forgetting it is apocalyptic. Does God want to do away with the false teaching of John Darby and the Rapture, in order to give humanity Real Wings to escape our doom?
God has chosen a obscure author in Springfield Oregon to save the world, because he revived the ancient cosmology of Augerism, then combined it with the teaching of Amile Noether. Pontius Pilate put Jesus to the augur’s test and found no fault in him. His symmetry – was perfect!
I now get it why others want to censor me. A intuitive part of them sees that I am being focused on a coming Doomsday. They believe if my predictions are erased, or, do not reach the public, the End Time will not arrive. However, people rioting in the streets all over the world, suggests the human subconscious is picking up the peril we are in.
I suspect Putin showed Trump this peril and told him the only way Doomsday can be prevented, is the establishment of a One Rose Atomic Order. ORAO.
The US Air Force failed to report a major meteor explosion near a military base in Greenland earlier this summer, leading to concern and confusion.
The explosion contained 2.1 kilotons of force and occurred just above an early-warning radar at the Thule Air Force base in June, according to Hans Kristensen, the director of the Nuclear Information Project for the Federation of American Scientists. Mr Kristensen confirmed the explosion in a tweet on Wednesday, suggesting the meteor could have been mistaken by some as a “Russian first strike”.
However, the US Air Force did not release a statement regarding the meteor, or even tweet about the phenomena.
When contacted for comment, a representative for the secretary of the Air Force public affairs told The Independent: “We’re not providing any comment on that, except that it didn’t impact operations at Thule.”
The Royal Janitor
John von John heaved a sigh of relief when Starfish reluctantly obeyed orders to go sit in the car.
“I never saw anyone get so drunk on one beer!” John said.
“There is no history of alcoholism!” Victoria said rubbing her chin with her sleeve, a tell that said she was truly puzzled.
“I think she is faking it. I suspect she has gone off to meet a lover. You know how women are….a lover in every port!”
Victoria was about to take John’s remark under serious consideration. If he had not added “You know how women are” suggesting Miram was a slut. This bit of misogyny would change the course of human history. For indeed Miriam made a beeline for the microfish room at the library of the University of Oregon where a male hand locked the door after she entered.
Now able to carry on a adult conversation, John was able to get at the core of his theory.
“I have uncovered evidence there was a special group of people rescued somewhere on the Russian Swedish border at the beginning of the war. This group may be a cadet branch of the Romanov family, and noble Germans who were invited to settle in Russian by Catherine the great. There is a ancient Viking bloodline in the mix. It looks like another attempt to create a master race. As you know Putin wants to restore Russian nobility and the true orthodoxy. Hitler was hunting for these people in order to install them in the Nazi government in Moscow once Operation Barbarossa was a success.”
“Is that it? Sounds like something you got off the internet. You and your President. Any real leads?”
“Yes. The actor Douglas Fairbanks Junior took part in Operation PQ 17. He and fellow actor, Christopher Lee, appear to have been working the van Rosen family together. Lee was going to marry Henrietta van Rosen. The King of Sweden gave his approval – after offering Fairbanks as a reference. There were investigations going on. ”
“It looks like a double sub-rosa to feel out what the other knows. Did Henrietta spill the beans in a love-making session? You know how women are!”
“Touché!” von John exclaimed. “There is a lead at the Naval station in the old Del Monte Hotel in Monterey. It has been suggested Salvador Dali was secretly smuggling people out of Nazi Germany.
“You’re kidding Dali is one of my heroes. I am a surrealist sculptress.”
“Check out the founders of the WAVES. They say have been processing these people into a relocation program. Don’t take that crazy women with you! You’ll get more done!”
With “done”, Miriam got off the old oak table and looked for her panties.
When Victoria and Miriam approached the Del Monte Hotel, they both exclaimed at the same exact time….”Osborne House!”
Victoria was like a school girl off to boarding school. She was thrilled they would be staying in the Dali Room that was reserved for special guest of the Navy. On the way to see Dali’s strange creations, Miriam came up short, and stood in front of a glass case.
“Oh look! Here’s my and my parents hero!”
Victoria glanced back, and felt faint as the name LEE flashed at her like a neon sign. Creeping towards the display honoring Real Admiral Willis Augustus Lee, she almost fainted – again!
“My parents learned to target shoot from Willey. He holds the record for Olympic gold medals. I’ going to shoot at the 2020 Olympics. I got a silver medal four years ago. I want the gold.”
Victoria wandered in a circle around Starfish, in a daze. She had experienced this when she went to Le Rosey, this getting of second hand information from her best friend who was always in the know long before she was.
“It’s a shame he does not get more attention. It’s the Robert E. Lee curse. My father was a wanna-be Redneck and Civil War buff. He told me all about the pans Britain had to invade the U.S. and win the war for the Confederacy.”
“He’s my kin. I descend from the Lees.” Peeped Victoria.
“Are you shitting me! Why didn’t you tell me?”
“I just found out. I was going to tell you tonight.”
“Damn! We got to go to the range now. You are a natural. I know it!”
“No! I told you – no! I will never pick up a gun. For the record, once again, here……”
“I did it.” Starfish told her best friend.

My psychic visions are coming true. Russia’s navy is back. Is America and NATO ready?
by Task and Purpose
The Navy says tackling this threat requires a shift in mentality across the force.
The Russian and Chinese navies have become increasingly active in the North Atlantic over the last five years, necessitating a return to a “competitive mindset” among U.S. Navy commanders, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said Monday.
“We’re talking about more [activity] than we’ve seen in 25 years,” Richardson said of Russian naval movements in the North Atlantic in an interview with Voice of America, adding that the Chinese Navy “is certainly a pacing competition for us in terms of the naval threat.”
Vice Adm. Charles A. Richard, the new head of U.S. Submarine Forces and Allied Submarine Command, put it more bluntly when he assumed command on August 3: “Prepare for battle!”
Victoria Bond had many dreams of a Ghost Fleet. I mentioned John Dee in July. Now it is clear…….Here comes the Royal Navy John Dee founded!
I have been working on a transition from my Bond book, to my Tolkien book. Now I see a movie about John Dee. I was born to write the screenplay and be the Art Director. I will title this move ‘Sea Lord’. My kindred, William and Peter Rosenberg, will be in this movie, and so will be Krumlov castle. My Bohemian Royalty is coming to California! Will, Dee and the Rosebergs sail on Drake’s the Golden Hind? Here we have Merlin in Oregon where a film maker claims the British Empire began! Everything is coming up roses for me – and my tales! I am in the catbird seat! I fought wiccans for a another magicians memorial – and won!
This will be the…

I believe Admiral Ian Easton, and Sea Lord, Caspar John, have been sending Lara and I messages.
“Raise the Royal Ghost Fleet!”
Just before Victoria Bond awoke from her naval dream, she heard a woman’s voice come to her like the wind from over the horizon.
“Save Albion from her enemies, Britannia!”
Britain’s six Type 45 destroyers, described as the backbone of the Royal Navy, spent 80 per cent of last year in dock.
The ships, costing £1billion each, need a multi-million pound refit after repeatedly breaking down in the Persian Gulf. But the work is not due to start until 2020.
Two of the cutting-edge warships, HMS Dauntless and HMS Defender, did not go to sea at all during 2017 – which had been hailed by officials and ministers as ‘the year of the Navy’.
All six warships, which entered service from 2008, were made with an engine system which cuts out in warm seas, leaving sailors stranded for hours in total darkness.
Albion (Ancient Greek: Ἀλβιών) is the oldest known name of the island of Great Britain. Today, it is still sometimes used poetically to refer to the island. The name for Scotland in the Celtic languages is related to Albion: Alba in Scottish Gaelic, Albain (genitive Alban) in Irish, Nalbin in Manx and Alban in Welsh, Cornish, and Breton. These names were later Latinised as Albania and Anglicised as Albany, which were once alternative names for Scotland.
New Albion and Albionoria (“Albion of the North”) were briefly suggested as names of Canada during the period of the Canadian Confederation. Arthur Phillip, first leader of the colonisation of Australia, originally named Sydney Cove “New Albion”, but later the colony acquired the name “Sydney“.
It was during the reign of Elizabeth I that “Britannia” came to be viewed as a personification of Britain. In his 1576 General and rare memorials pertayning to the Perfect Arte of Navigation, John Dee used a frontispiece figure of Britannia kneeling by the shore beseeching Elizabeth I, to protect her empire by strengthening her navy.
With the death of Elizabeth in 1603 came the succession of her Scottish cousin, James VI, King of Scots, to the English throne. He became James I of England, and so brought under his personal rule the Kingdoms of England (and the dominion of Wales), Ireland and Scotland. On 20 October 1604, James VI and I proclaimed himself as “King of Great Brittaine, France and Ireland”, a title that continued to be used by many of his successors. When James came to the English throne, some elaborate pageants were staged. One pageant performed on the streets of London in 1605 was described in Anthony Munday‘s Triumphs of Reunited Britannia:
Britannia has been used in several different senses. The name is a Latinisation of the native Brittonic word for the island, Pretanī, which also produced the Greek form Prettanike or Brettaniai, which originally, in the fourth to the first centuries BC, designated a collection of islands with individual names, including Albion or Britain.
Here are the vessels that Sir Caspar John served upon. He was born into a artistic family. I would like see the College of Defence Studies founded by the Artist, Sir Winston Churchill, expanded to include Creative People in Britain and the U.S. As a rule artists, writers, and musicians do not take slaves, gas people, and loot other people’s art. Hitler did all three. He was a bad artist who cost the world many lives, and a trillion dollars to put him down. We took back the art he stole and put it in sacred public places. I support Theresa May’s strike against Assad, who gassed his own people.
Below are the warships that Sir Ian Easton served on.
China’s interpretation of the law of the sea within what it claims to be its own waters has long clashed with that of maritime powers and the majority of members of the international community. The United States regularly asserts maritime rights and freedoms under its “freedom of navigation” program, much to Beijing’s chagrin.
Former Brookings Expert
Senior Research Fellow – University of Cambridge
But as other maritime powers join the United States in taking steps to defend maritime rights—a British Royal Navy warship makes its way through the South China Sea this month—it is in China’s interests to learn from the Soviet example. As the Soviet navy transitioned from a “reactive coastal fleet” to a “proactive, expansionist, blue-water navy,” the Soviet attitude towards the law of the sea changed. It moved from one that sought to limit maritime freedoms to one that joined hands with naval powers, including its Cold War foe, the United States, to push for protection of such freedoms. A similar shift would help boost China’s international reputation, as well as protect and advance its interests across the globe.
Maritime powers join hands
British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson confirmed last month that a Royal Navy warship would sail through the South China Sea in March on its way back from Australia to the United Kingdom to assert navigation rights in waters Beijing claims. The HMS Sutherland left Sydney for the South China Sea on March 15, undertaking training with the Australian navy in the meantime. It is not clear what rights, exactly, the United Kingdom will assert—Williamson declined to say whether it would exercise rights to innocent passage within 12-nautical miles of disputed land territories or wider freedoms outside of territorial seas.
What is clear, however, is that in taking steps to assert rights vested under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) in the South China Sea, the United Kingdom joins other maritime powers in guarding against their erosion. In June 2016, the French minister of defense underscored his country’s commitment to the principles of freedom of navigation and overflight and the navy’s intention to continue to pass through the waters of the region several times a year. In the first half of 2016, French navy vessels deployed to the region three times.
U.S. Freedom of Navigation program
The United States, for its part, regularly asserts maritime rights vested under UNCLOS under its “freedom of navigation” program. The program’s name is a bit of a misnomer since it protects more than the right to navigate from point A to point B. It defends a whole basket of rights and freedoms, including the right of warships to exercise innocent passage within territorial seas without prior notification or authorization, and the freedom to conduct military activities, including surveillance and reconnaissance, outside of territorial seas. The U.S. freedom of navigation program also pushes back against excessive maritime claims that limit rights and freedoms of warships and warplanes. In the past year, U.S. forces under the freedom of navigation program challenged China’s claims to a territorial sea from offshore features not entitled to one under UNCLOS.
Given its wide scope, it is more accurate to describe the program as a “freedoms of the seas” or “excessive maritime claims” program. More accurate terminology would make it more difficult for China to sidestep real disagreements over legitimate rights and freedoms under UNCLOS. Beijing suggests that the United States and others invent concerns over “freedom of navigation,” but its argument only has superficial validity if we take “freedom of navigation” in its narrowest sense. Still, the term “freedom of navigation” operations, or “FONOPS,” has stuck. From October 1, 2016, to September 30, 2017, the United States conducted freedom of navigation operations to challenge the excessive maritime claims of 22 countries around the world.
Britain’s armed forces are massively bolstered by the massive threat posed to any enemies by the colossal aircraft carrier – which can carry up to 60 planes. It is staffed by around 650 crew and can travel more than half way around the world before needing to be refuelled. Her sister ship is named HMS Prince of Wales, and is the eighth to bear that name.
British naval vessels in the South China Sea are avoiding the 12 mile zone around newly constructed military bases that China has constructed on disputed rocks.
Gavin Williamson, the British defence secretary, yesterday finished a three-day tour of southeast Asia in which he boasted of British “determination” to stand up against the nuclear threat of North Korea and the threat to navigation by China in the South China Sea.
The competition to build the Royal Navy’s next low-cost frigate moved forward this week as Babcock Team 31 showed off its proposed design for the Type 31e warship. Called the Arrowhead 140, the contender for the £1.25 billion (US$1.63 billion) program is being developed by a Babcock-led consortium that includes Thales, OMT, BMT, Harland and Wolff, and Ferguson Marine, and is based on a design already in service with the Royal Danish Navy.
