Alleged Time Traveler Runs for U.S. President: Real Deal or CIA PsyOp?
On December 19, Andrew Basiago, J.D., officially declared on the nationally syndicated Coast to Coast radio show that he is running as a candidate for the 2016 U.S. Presidential election. He announced that he would soon release 100 proposals, which would include telling the truth about classified projects run by the CIA that he claims to have directly participated in involving time travel and trips to Mars.
According to Basiago, these classified CIA programs pre-identified him as a future U.S. President. Is Basiago a heroic whistleblower disclosing the existence of extraterrestrial life and secret space programs, or part of a CIA sanctioned psychological operation to manipulate the disclosure process?
Basiago’s campaign will be based on the three pillars, “Truth; Reform; and Innovation in a New Agenda for a New America.” He has explained the goals of his Presidential Truth campaign bid as follows:
My plan, basically, is to sustain my Truth campaign about secret US achievements of time travel and Mars visitation; [to] continue to share my experiences in Project Pegasus [a classified time travel program] and on Mars in mainstream and alternative media.
And then, as part of my recommendations of what I would bring about as President – a major one is what I would do with these two technical capabilities when I run for president in 2016.
Alfred Webre, a prominent futurist and legal scholar, pointed out a key element of Basiago’s past participation in classified CIA programs, and why he has declared himself as a U.S. Presidential candidate:
… career CIA officers associated with DARPA’s-secret time travel program confirmed that U.S. government secret time travel pre-identified him as a future U.S. President — as it did U.S. Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
The role of the CIA in pre-identifying Basiago as a future President leads to an important question. Was Basiago groomed by the CIA, since childhood, to eventually run for the U.S. Presidency on a CIA sanctioned “disclosure program?” Answering this question requires some examination of Basiago’s claims concerning teleportation, time travel, trips to Mars; and the CIA’s role in preparing him for an eventual Presidential run.
CIA, DARPA and Project Pegasus
Basiago claims that in 1967/1968, when he was age six, his father Raymond Basiago introduced him to a teleportation device by which he was physically transported from New Jersey to New Mexico, as “the first American child to teleport.”
I was first brought into Project Pegasus by my father in 1967-68, when at age six I teleported with him from New Jersey to New Mexico via a teleporter located in Building 68 at the “old” Curtiss-Wright Aeronautical Company facility formerly at 1 Passaic Avenue in Wood Ridge, New Jersey. This “jump” resulted in me becoming the first American child to teleport.
Basiago said that his father soon after recruited him into a CIA-run intelligence gathering operation called “Project Pegasus” in which he served until 1972. Basiago states: “Project Pegasus at the time that I joined it in 1969 was not primarily a time travel project – it was an intelligence program for the CIA.”
Project Pegasus involved children testing up to a total of eight different time-travel and teleportation related technologies, and revealing what they had experienced in subsequent debriefings:
Project Pegasus was debriefing the teleportees and the other forms of time travelling – time travelers – including myself, having gone to the past and future using different methodologies and different technologies – so we were being interviewed to derive when we were going forward in time … information with which the US government could create reports that were promulgated by the CIA, and then sent around the project in other areas of the government to people with a ‘need to know’ status, to know of certain events.
Project Pegasus was alleged to be a vital national security program and was administratively placed under the control of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA –named ARPA at the time.).
In a signed affidavit released on September 11, 2012, Basiago says:
The mission of Project Pegasus was to use quantum access to develop a “remote sensing in time” capability pertaining to non-local events on behalf of the Executive Branch of the United States government.
It was hoped that by developing better intelligence about past and future events, Project Pegasus would enable the US president, intelligence community, and military to engage in better contingency planning for future events.
Project Pegasus was trying to accomplish this by developing different time travel technologies in a research and development program under the aegis of DARPA.
Basiago claimed that the Ralph M. Parsons company, was directly involved in developing some of these time travel technologies of interest to the CIA and DARPA. Basiago’s father, Raymond, was a “special projects engineer” for the company and its liaison with the CIA.
In investigating the precise nature of his father’s relationship with the CIA, Basiago states in his signed affidavit that to all intents and purposes, Raymond was a CIA agent:
During his 18 years of employment with the Parsons Corporation ostensibly working on conventional engineering projects, my father was secretly employed as the technical liaison between Parsons and the CIA on the theory and practice of teleportation.
While it is not clear whether Raymond F. Basiago was ever a CIA officer per se, his work with DARPA, the CIA, and other US military and intelligence agencies was extensive enough for him to be in the CIA employee database.
When I inquired of my father’s employment status with the CIA through an intermediary ten years ago, I was told by the CIA that they could not release information to the family members of living or deceased CIA personnel.
Basiago has described the extensive connections between the CIA and the Ralph Parsons company which included a former CIA Director, John McCone, in its leadership team.
Basiago believes that his father and other CIA personnel in Project Pegasus were “White Hats” in favor of public disclosure ,and release of the teleportation technologies:
So he [Raymond Basiago] was CIA – as were many other people. But I’m proud of my dad and I think you can say that he was a ‘White Hat’ inside the intelligence community; because among other things, he was actively urging the public adoption – the declassification and deployment of Tesla teleportation – for civilian functions, for civilian transport, when he was serving on this project.
This admission is vitally important for understanding Basiago’s disclosure testimony, and involvement in CIA run projects. As far as he was concerned, his father and others were “White Hats” fighting the good fight within the CIA to release these advanced technologies to the world.
Basiago’s Time Travel Expeditions
Basiago has described a number of time travel expeditions he has undertaken during his time in Project Pegasus. This included time travel back to Gettysburg in 1863, to hear Lincoln address the Union troops, using a wormhole technology called “plasma confinement.” The effects of this mode of time travel wore off after a period, thereby returning him to the present:
The Plasma Confinement Chamber. In Spring 1972, my father took me to a time lab in East Hanover, NJ where, under the direction of Dr. Stirling Colgate, I entered a Lucite chamber where plasma was emitted, and while immersed in the plasma, I worm-holed to Gettysburg, PA on November 19, 1863, where I was depicted in the famous Josephine Cobb photograph of Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg.
In support of his claim, Basiago has shown in public lectures the Cobb photograph of the Gettysburg address with a child in the foreground. He claims that he was told by Project Pegasus leaders that he was the child, and that it happened just before he returned back to 1972.
Basiago claims that he undertook other journeys into the past, using a different time-travel technology called “the Chronovisor” (aka “Looking Glass”). This enabled past and future events to be experienced holographically, without physically traveling there as he explains:
A “chronovisor” is an electro-optical device that by driving an electro-magnetic signature through a crystal array propagates a hologram that lenses a non-local event into the laboratory. Chronovisors were fully operation in the secret realms of the US defense-technical community by 1967-69.
In 1970, Basiago claims that he and other Project Pegasus child participants visited various classified facilities hosting chronovisors:
In Fall 1970, the children in my group first began accessing past and future events via third and fourth-dimensional Ernetti-Gemelli chronovisors situated at the General Manufacturing Company in Convent Station, New Jersey; a public auditorium under construction in Morristown, New Jersey; and the ITT Defense Communications facility in Nutley, New Jersey.
Basiago’s assertion of visiting a classified facility run by ITT in Nutley, New Jersey in 1970 received surprising corroboration by no less a personage than famed radio host Art Bell, who was at the time employed by ITT in a classified NATO communication project. This was information Bell had never before publicly revealed. He was clearly shocked as Basiago revealed during a live radio interview on August 14, 2015, how he encountered Bell working on a classified project at the Nutley facility in 1970 when Basiago was only 8/9 years old.
Basiago says that through the chronovisor technology a highly classified film was made of the crucifixation and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Basiago claims to have seen the 20 minute film and said it matched what is depicted in biblical accounts of the life of Jesus.
Basiago further claims that the 9/11 twin tower attacks involving Arab terrorists that hijacked two planes was foreseen by his father and other Project Pegasus participants. He says that Donald Rumsfeld was the liaison at the time between Project Pegasus and the Pentagon, and therefore knew about the 9/11 attacks in advance. This led to Basiago putting together a detailed affidavit that he publicly released on September 11, 2012, as a submission to a non-official investigation called the Vancouver 9/11 Tribunal.
I am filing this affidavit with the tribunal because I have direct, personal knowledge of the fact that a secret time travel project for which he served as defense attache gave Donald H. Rumsfeld, who served as US Secretary of Defense during 9/11, prior knowledge of 9/11 thirty years before 9/11.
Basiago’s affidavit became a contentious issue for the Vancouver Tribunal and ultimately led to an acrimonious split between Alfred Webre, who wanted to submit it, and Jim Fetzer and others who believed it would subvert the 9/11 Truth Movement.
At this stage, it is worth examining Basiago’s credibility as a whistleblower. In his signed 2012 affidavit, Basiago affirms:
This affidavit is accurate to the best of my ability to remember and tell the true life experiences that I testify to in it and is made without any motive to deceive or purpose of evasion.
Basiago has an impressive educational resume with degrees from UCLA and Cambridge University, which has culminated in him having a private law practice in Washington State. As such, he is professionally required to adhere to high ethical standards in order to continue being an officer of the court. Among these is telling the truth when it comes to public activities.
This is a fact that Basiago has emphasized again and again when it comes to his disclosures that, if proven to be untrue, would lead to his disbarment and effectively end his professional career.
There is little debate over his father’s professional background as an engineer, and the possibility that the Ralph Parsons company was directly involved in classified time-travel projects. The Parsons company had been involved, since its formation, in a number of highly classified programs run by the Department of Defense. This included developing silos for the placement of U.S. strategic nuclear missiles.
It is very plausible that the Parsons company would have been chosen to spearhead research and development of a classified program such as Pegasus, as Basiago claimed. Indeed, he describes an intriguing incident involving a luxury yacht purchased by the company founder, Ralph Parsons, from the arms trader, Adnan Kashoggi. Parsons renamed the yacht Pegasus II, in an indirect reference to the Pegasus program that his company had been entrusted with by the CIA and ARPA. A local newspaper covered the event in February 1973:
In his choice of name for his newly acquired luxury yacht, Parsons clearly associated the name ‘Pegasus’ with success and achieving the impossible. Was it mere coincidence, or was the naming due to his company’s success in doing the impossible: developing time travel technologies that provided the CIA a unique intelligence gathering capacity? If so, would the CIA use such technology to determine who future U.S. Presidents would be, and attempt to influence them prior to the events leading to their Presidencies?
Project Pegasus and Pre-identifying Future Presidents
Basiago says a number of U.S. Presidents and Vice-Presidents were “pre-identified” through time traveling by other Project Pegasus participants. These pre-identified (Vice-) Presidents were met by Basiago’s father and other CIA/DARPA personnel in informal lunches which Basiago also attended as a pre-teen:
I also met several future national leaders of the United States at lunches that were held in Albuquerque, NM with project principals shortly after they were apprised of the fact that using its quantum access capability DARPA had determined that they were destined to serve as President or Vice President of the United States. These individuals included President George H.W.Bush, Vice President Richard B. Cheney, President George W. Bush, and President William J. Clinton.
Less than a decade after completing his participation in Project Pegasus in 1972, Basiago claims that he learned that Barack Obama, and Basiago himself, had been pre-identified as future Presidents during another classified program run by the CIA. This raises the question, is Basiago’s 2016 Presidential run the “real deal” or is it part of a CIA psychological operation?
