In the aftermath of my bicycle accident I’ve been searching for a way to stay in physical shape, at least until my collar bone heals sufficiently that I can return to bicycling. My surgeon has cleared me for bicycle riding after the 15th of August, but after meeting with him on the 18th of July I was cleared for swimming.
I used to swim laps at a pool on a regular basis about 15 years ago, so I knew what was involved. I immediately bought swimming trunks, extra towels at Goodwill, and a pair of swim goggles. That afternoon I went swimming for the first time in years and gingerly tested my shoulder’s ability to do the breast stroke and freestyle. I spent about 30 minutes in the pool splashing around.
Two days later, on a Saturday, I went to the pool again to do laps. After spending 40 minutes in the pool and swimming about 800 yards (meters), I went back out into the scorching heat of an Arizona summer afternoon and the car would not start. After about 10 minutes of trying to start the engine, it suddenly turned over and ran beautifully. The last time this happened was about a year ago.
When I arrived at one of my favorite grocery stores to purchase a sandwich for lunch, I noticed a Tempe Police vehicle cruising through the parking lot. About a year ago my car engine would start for about 10 minutes outside my apartment complex and when I finally arrived at my destination an Arizona State Trooper drove by.
The car ran flawlessly for the next week, but when I got into the car the following Saturday, a swim day, the car would not start again, at all. I rode my bicycle to the library and swimming pool instead, violating my surgeon’s recommendation that I avoid bicycling. My shoulder was fine during the ride and I remained within a commuting speed.
The following Monday I got into my car and it started right away, but the wheels seemed to be making a lot of noise traveling down the road. I heard it again today and examined the lug nuts on my wheels. The following photo shows shiny spots on the lug nuts consistent with recent loosening. The last time these lug nuts were removed was a year ago, when I bought a new tire. These shiny spots could be due to changing the tire a year ago, but it seems unlikely. I could be wrong, but if I’m not and someone has messed with my car again, then this photo documents what may have occurred during the dark hours of the night.
The sudden and inexplicable inability of my car starting happened frequently in South Carolina, during a period when I would take really long drives to force the people following me to spend a lot on gasoline. Most of these people were driving full size pickup trucks, SUVs, and cars, while I was driving a Honda Civic getting about 40 miles to the gallon on the highway. For every dollar I spent on gasoline, I suspected they were spending 10 to 20 dollars. If they were also paying salaries, then all the better.
So, when my car suddenly decides not to start after my second swim session, my paranoia was triggered. Given the heat and the prohibition on bicycle riding by my surgeon, I had become very dependent on my car for getting around. The sudden inability of my car starting correlated exactly with my beginning to get back in shape and strengthening my right shoulder through swimming, a great cardiovascular workout. And, as happened the last time my car wouldn’t start for 10 minutes, a police officer was at my destination. It’s almost as if my car was prevented from starting until the police could get into position. However, the second Saturday was simply to prevent me from going anywhere that day.
It seems important to note that directed energy weapons development by the U.S. military has as one of its goals the disruption of electronics, including vehicle electrical systems.
In 2007, when I was preparing to drive from Tucson, Arizona to Charleston, South Carolina for a new job my car suddenly quit working. This happened less than a week before my move. The car wouldn’t start and I was forced to tow it to the Honda dealership for repairs. The cost of repairs was around $700-900 dollars because part of the electrical system, the ignitor, had failed. This was a bit surprising since the dealership had replaced the ignitor less than a year ago, but since repair warranties are typically 90 days to 6 months, I had to pay for a new one. This pattern, if it is a pattern of harassment, is consistent with victims being forced to pay for vehicle repairs caused by malicious activity and to discourage victims moving from one location to another to escape the harassment.
If I am right, then the failure of my car’s electrical system on repeated occasions to work properly is consistent with the use of directed energy weapon’s targeting. However, the shiny spots on my lug nuts could indicate an attempt by the perpetrators to become less dependent on interfering with the car’s electrical system as a way to constrain my activities. It could all be a coincidence, but then again, maybe not.
