Below is my video blog on the Artemis Accords signed on October 13 between the United State and seven allied nations with national space programs: Australia, Canada, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom. While the language is designed to fit into the provisions of the Outer Space Treaty ratified by UN member nations in 1967, these are bilateral accords with the US, and the UN is merely a place where the accords are placed for international recognition. 
 
The Artemis Accords contain mutual defense provisions if any nations experience harmful interference in their explorations of the Moon, Mars, asteroids and minor planets. This is first step towards a Space NATO, and eventually a future Star Fleet.
 
The choice of Artemis as the name for the accords is also very significant symbolically given what has been happening in space in terms of space weapons, false flag events, galactic slave trade, etc., by major nations such as China and rogue secret space programs. Artemis was the Goddess of the forest, hunt, Moon, and righteous behavior. The hidden intent of the Artemis Accords is to clean up these rogue space programs, ensure ethical behavior in space, and to rein in Communist China, which plans to become the undisputed hegemon on Earth and in  Space.

What follows is my two part series of articles originally published on July 16 and July 19, 2009, on Examiner.com concerning the revelations of an alleged Navy Seal who spent time at the S-4 facility at Area 51, which he described as a museum for flying saucers and aliens. The former Seal claimed that guard duty at S-4 was used as a means of “cooling down” assassins used by the CIA to permanently silence government critics and/or remove national security threats.

The whistleblower, Derek Hennessy, used the pseudonym “Connor O’Ryan” in a set of interviews with Lt Col Wendelle Stevens in 1991 that was recorded on video. Hennessy/O’Ryan provided a number of documents supporting his testimony. This was especially important since the Seal claimed that records of his Navy service had been purged from official records in a similar manner to what had earlier happened with Bob Lazar in 1989.

Col. Stevens spent a decade verifying Hennessy’s story and supporting documents before he felt confident enough about their authenticity to come forward in 2001 to discuss his investigation at two UFO conferences in Australia and the US (International UFO Congress). He says that prior to the Australia conference he received a phone call warning him not to go too far in releasing the information, but that only convinced him that Hennessy/O’Ryan was telling the truth.

The subsequent release of the video interviews in 2009 (nearly two decades later), which were edited by Rick Keefe from UFO Hypotheses, provided the general public their own opportunity to hear Hennessy/O’Ryan’s story in his own words. I described some of the contents in my original two part series.

I began to assist Steven’s investigation of Hennesy/O’Ryan after watching the video interviews, researching some of the supporting documentation, and interviewing participants such as Jim Dilettoso, who gave Hennessy/O’Ryan sanctuary on his property where the interviews took place. In my last conversation with Col. Stevens, he said that Hennessy/O’Ryan had re-emerged, but had no memories of his earlier life.

Unfortunately, on September 7, 2010, Col. Stevens passed away at his home in Tuscon Arizona, effectively bringing the investigation of Hennessy/O’Ryan to an end. Now after a decade, it appears that the timing of Col. Steven’s death is suspicious given the renewed public interest in his investigation of trained CIA assassins recruited from elite military units such as Navy Seals.

Seymour Hersch had broken the news of a pool of CIA assassins linked to former Vice President Richard Cheney, as I discussed in my first article. Stevens’ information that these CIA controlled “Black Seals” were rested between assignments at highly classified facilities housing UFO related artifacts, and that Cheney had been sighted there, took on special new significance given Hersh’s revelations.

The six hours of video interviews provide extensive details of life on the S-4 facility, what is hidden there, how assassins are recruited and rested there, and of visiting dignitaries such as Cheney and former Director of the NSA, Admiral Bobby Ray Inman. The videos are available in three parts (Vol 1, Vol 2, Vol 3)

I am republishing both articles in the series today since they add considerable information on the historical reverse engineering efforts undertaken in the USA for the development of multiple secret space programs as described in my Secret Space Programs book series. With the demise of the Examiner.com back in 2016, both articles are difficult to find, even using the Wayback machine. They appear in their original form with minor grammatical editing and updates where appropriate [in square brackets].

Part 1 – Testimony of CIA Assassin Recruited from Navy SEALS Goes Online with Documents

On July 13 [2009], the New York Times ran a story about the CIA running an assassination squad using U.S military special forces against foreign terrorists without Congressional approval on the orders of former Vice President Dick Cheney.  The Times story confirms claims by Seymour Hersh in March 2009 that an assassination squad had been created that reported directly to Cheney using special forces personnel. 

The covert CIA project was shut down by CIA Director Leon Panetta when he learned of it on June 23. Details of the project were passed on the next day to the U.S. Congress and led to furor over the reports. A statement by seven members of the House Intelligence Committee concerning the CIA misleading Congress was subsequently released. 

The covert CIA program allegedly began in 2001 soon after the 911 attacks. The unfolding revelations of CIA death squads using U.S. military special forces personnel coincides with the online release of video testimony of a former U.S. Navy SEAL who said he was recruited to perform 18 assassination assignments for the CIA.

If true, the Seal’s testimony reveals that covert assassinations predate the 911 attacks, and also targeted U.S. citizens. Curiously, the assassinations were related to covert projects Dick Cheney was allegedly involved in when he was Secretary of Defense for George H.W. Bush from 1989 to 1993.

Connor O’Ryan was a pseudonym used by Derek Hennessy who claims in video testimony recorded in 1991, that he performed covert missions for the CIA in the 1980s assassinating enemies of the United States. After joining the U.S. Navy in the early 1980s, O’Ryan/Hennessy claims he joined the elite Seals and was eventually tasked to perform his covert assassination missions.

He said that targets of the assassination hits even included U.S. citizens. He described his 18th and final mission as a sergeant for the U.S. Army Green Berets stationed at the U.S. Embassy in Budapest, Hungary.

O’Ryan’s/Hennessy’s extraordinary claims were investigated over a ten year period by a retired Lt Colonel with the U.S. Air Force, Wendelle Stevens. During his investigation, Stevens was able to confirm Hennessy’s military I.D. and that he was assigned to the CIA performing covert missions. Concerned that O’Ryan/Hennessy may have been part of an intelligence operation to discredit him, Stevens did not release the initial results of his investigation until 2001.

Video testimony of O’Ryan/Hennessy is included in a set of interviews conducted with Stevens released on the internet in 2009. In the interviews, Steven’s discussed documents he had in his possession verifying Hennessy’s covert CIA missions.

One document was written on CIA letter head (see above graphic) with instructions for O/Ryan/Hennessy on his last mission. Steven’s read out the document’s contents as follows:

You are to report to the American Embassy in Budapest, Hungary. You will be received by S.A. Greywolf. As a unit you will proceed to terminate an ex S.A. David T. Johnson.

According to Stevens, the document was O’Ryan’s/Hennessy’s final hit order one month before he left his last assignment at a secret facility in Nevada.

Another document is O’Ryan’s/Hennessy’s W-2 salary statement that showed he was earning $74,000 for the CIA. Though only a sergeant he was earning the equivalent of a colonel’s salary at the time. Steven’s was able to confirm that the serial number and code word on the W-2 were active through an anonymous FBI source.

In the video Stevens mistakenly refers to the salary statement as a W-4, but a copy of the W-2 is clearly shown [see below].

 

Combined with O’Ryan’s/Hennessy’s recorded video testimony, the documents, if genuine, would be smoking gun evidence that a CIA assassination squad using U.S. military personnel predated 2001 and even targeted U.S. citizens.

To date, neither of the documents has been released to the public. Only video images are available. Independent document authentication still has to be conducted.

The confirmation of the W-2 by an anonymous FBI contact of Stevens is powerful support for the legitimacy of O’Brian’s/Hennessy’s story.

There is good reason, however, to be skeptical about the CIA hit order document’s legitimacy. It is difficult to accept that the CIA would be so explicit in putting on CIA stationary orders to terminate a serving U.S. military non-commissioned officer.

MJ012 Assassination Directive – Source: Majestic Documents

One could reasonably argue that such orders, if put on paper, would be done in a more cryptic manner without the CIA logo. This would be consistent with an Assassination Directive that former CIA Director Allen Dulles allegedly drafted in 1961, and was later authorized by a group responsible for covert operations called Majestic-12.

The alleged Dulles’ Assassination Directive used the cryptic phrase “it should be wet” as a code word for assassinations designed to protect Majestic-12 operations.

If indeed there has been a CIA assassination program that predates 2001, it may originate from Dulles’ 1961 draft Assassination Directive. The directive was allegedly received by the chief of CIA counterintelligence, James Jesus Angleton in 1961, and subsequently linked to the President Kennedy Assassination.

If O’Ryan/Hennessy did eliminate a serving Green Beret in Budapest in 1991 as he claims, then the authority for such an assassination may derive from Dulles’ 1961 draft Assassination Directive.

If O’Ryan/Hennessy’s CIA hit order letter is a hoax, that raises an equally perplexing question. Why would Wendelle Stevens, a long time researcher of the UFO phenomenon, be targeted in an elaborate intelligence operation to discredit him with a contrived story about CIA assassins using elite military special forces personnel in 1991? O’Ryan/Hennessy spent an extended period hiding with Stevens and associates while allegedly on the run.

During this time, a series of events occurred that persuaded those giving shelter to O’Ryan/Hennessy that he was genuinely being monitored and threatened to return voluntarily to his program. Eventually, O’Ryan/Hennessy disappeared and was not heard of for approximately a decade when he re-emerged with a new identity, and no memories of his covert activities with the CIA.

If O’Ryan/Hennessy’s testimony is even partially correct, as Stevens’ confirmation of his W-2 suggests, it would confirm the existence of an assassination team run by the CIA prior to 2001. His testimony reveals that even U.S. citizens were eliminated due to agendas of a highly classified covert operations run out of the CIA. O’Ryan/Hennessy himself apparently become a target when he shared his information with Stevens and this may have been related to his disappearance.

For the last nine months of his military service during his final assassination missions, Hennessy was assigned to a covert facility in Nevada called S-4 to perform sentry duty for a highly classified covert project. It was there that he witnessed Dick Cheney arrive one day for an inspection for a project, maintaining the secrecy of, which was related to his earlier assassination missions.

To be continued …

Part 2 – Cheney taken inside S-4 to view flying saucers & EBE bodies

Around April 1991, Dick Cheney was taken inside a secret underground facility located in a remote area in Nevada adjacent to Nellis Air Force base to view captured flying saucers and dead extraterrestrial bodies. The startling claims were made by a former security guard at the facility who in October 1991 gave his testimony on video. The guard had documents and photos supporting his claims of working on the secret facility called S-4.

The guard, Derek Hennessy, used the pseudonym Connor O’Ryan in giving his testimony in a set of interviews with Lt Col Wendelle Stevens (USAF, ret.) and his associate Gem Cox. O’Ryan/Hennessy claims he had worked for 8/9 years as a Navy SEAL and performed various covert operations. He said that 18 of these missions were assassinations sanctioned by the CIA or other agencies. During the last nine months of his military service in 1991, he worked at the remote S-4 facility which had stringent security procedures. It appeared that the isolation and security at S-4 helped assassins hide their trail after missions.

O’Ryan/Hennessy described his work on the second level of the S-4 facility. S-4 employed approximately 75 personnel on levels 1 and 2. He said he was aware of a further two levels of the facility, but was never allowed to enter levels 3 and 4. He said that approximately 12-15 personnel worked at Levels 3 & 4. His primary duty was to guard the elevators to them which required three keys, a thumbprint and a retinal scan to open.

O’Ryan/Hennessy described the hangar facilities on level two for storing the seven flying saucers retrieved from various crash sites. There were ten hangar bays in total.

The facility was described as “the museum” suggesting it was designed to store advanced extraterrestrial technologies that had been superceded. He revealed how one or more of the flying saucers would be raised to the surface for a flight test. This would only occur when no Russian or other spy satellites were passing overhead. All testing would stop when satellites were detected.

He also described seven tubes with bodies of extraterrestrial biological entities (EBEs) typically described as Grays. A biologist would regularly check the fluids to maintain the right temperature and fluid mix to maintain the bodies. In addition to the photos he showed to two witnesses, O’Ryan/ Hennessy drew pictures in his taped interview describing the facilities.

O’Ryan/Hennessy described the day Cheney visited as around the time when the U.S. was closing military bases at the end of the Cold War. Cheney was accompanied by three other officials and escorted by two base security personnel. He said Cheney only visited the first two levels of the S-4 facility and saw both the flying saucers and the bodies of dead extraterrestrials. O’Ryan/Hennessy said:

I was on level two at the time of his visit … and I watched him go in and he went into the back building and we were called up to guard the front of the hangar areas. … He saw the bodies too – the seven little grey people.

A supercomputer and photo analysis expert, Jim Dilettoso, allowed O’Ryan/Hennessy to stay at his property for a month. Dilettoso said O’Ryan/Hennessy showed both him and Gem Cox photographs allegedly taken at S-4. He saw photos of what appeared to be extraterrestrial vehicles, and extraterrestrial bodies in glass tubes.

He also saw a photo with Dick Cheney standing on a balcony allegedly inside the S-4 facility viewing the area below with the flying saucers and bodies while O’Connor/Hennessy was allegedly on duty. Dilettoso also recognized the former Director of the National Security Agency, Admiral Bobby Ray Inman (USN ret.) as one of the officials in the photo with Cheney.

How credible is O’Ryan’s/Hennessy’s testimony? The most significant documentary evidence is the W-2 obtained by Stevens [see above]. The control number (45851), Employer Identification Number (95-6593572) and Employers State ID (2464423P) were checked and confirmed by Stevens’ FBI contact.

According to the FBI contact, O’Ryan/Hennessy had been “deprogrammed and reprogrammed” after being taken back in to covert programs by the CIA and Naval intelligence on various covert assignments. The W-2 and numbers can be investigated for independent confirmation.

Furthermore, O’Ryan/Hennessy revealed many details in his video testimony to Wendelle Stevens and Gem Cox about his background and events, that can also be investigated for corroboration. Finally, O’Ryan/Hennessy stayed for a month with supercomputer and photo analysis expert, Jim Dilettoso who along with Cox witnessed his photos and a duty roster that O’Ryan/Hennessy showed him. 

Dilettoso also described a bizarre incident that changed his initial skepticism towards O’Ryan//Hennessy’s amazing story. Returning from a 1991 Thanksgiving party that O’Ryan/Hennessy attended, Dilettoso found a package at the inside front gate of his ranch. Thinking it was for him, Dilettoso took it.

When it was later opened, a severed finger was found along with a threatening note directed at O’Ryan/Hennessy to return photos and other evidence of S-4. Together with other strange episodes indicating close surveillance by a mysterious group of people, Dilettoso decided it was time for O’Ryan/Hennessy to leave.

O’Ryan/Hennessy says he decided to come forward after he was told that he had contracted a virulent form of Hodgkin’s disease. Being 29 at the time, and in good health with no history of the disease in his family, he suspected that he was being set up for elimination. In retaliation, he decided to become a whistleblower and release photographs taken at S-4.

O’Ryan//Hennessy’s remarkable testimony, if substantiated, clearly reveals that Richard Cheney while Secretary of Defense, had directly witnessed S-4, and covert programs involving extraterrestrial life and technology. That may explain why George Bush deferred to Cheney during the 2000 Presidential Campaign on a question concerning when UFO information would be released: “It will be the first thing he (pointing to Cheney) will do. He’ll get right on it.” 

Alas, after a tumultuous eight years as Vice-President, Cheney never chose to disclose anything about his alleged visit to S-4, and knowledge of extraterrestrial life and technology.

[An audio version of this article is available at: https://youtu.be/Ed7azb4PQjQ ]

The recently established United States Space Force is widely considered to be the brainchild of President Donald Trump, which has subsequently aroused suspicion, if not outright opposition, by those believing it to be a grandiose vanity project with no genuine national security significance. However, the first proposal for a Space Force dates back to a bipartisan “Space Commission” established during the Clinton administration that delivered a detailed report on January 11, 2001, recommending a new military space service to be called “Space Corps”. The chief goal of the Space Corps would be to prevent a future “Space Pearl Harbor”.

What is even more intriguing in tracking the historical origin of Space Force is that the Space Commission was headed by Donald Rumsfeld, a former Secretary of Defense (1975-1977), who has a mysterious history in UFO investigations, the study and reverse engineering of captured extraterrestrial technologies, and in recruiting individuals for secret space programs. Rumsfeld’s leadership of the Space Commission, and his second appointment as Secretary of Defense (2001-2006) under President George Bush, led to Commission members believing that legislation for creating a Space Force was imminent.

What happened eight months later completely derailed any hope for prospective legislation creating a Space Corps, the September 11 attack, which evidence suggests was a false flag attack orchestrated by the Deep State. Only a day earlier, Rumsfeld had admitted on live T.V. that the Pentagon couldn’t properly account for a missing 2.3 trillion dollars. This had led to much speculation whether one of the motivations for the September 11 attack was to prevent serious investigations into the missing trillions.

Given Rumsfeld’s leadership role in proposing the creation of a Space Corps, his subsequent second appointment as Secretary of Defense, and his exposure of the missing trillions, a question that can be asked is whether another key purpose of the Deep State in launching the September 11 attack, was to stop the creation of a Space Corps? If so, then it appears that a Space Pearl Harbor is a scenario that the Deep State has been facilitating since at least 2001, and they were laying the groundwork for U.S. officials acknowledging such a threat while effectively doing nothing to prevent it.

It’s worth beginning with what the Commission report had to say about the creation of a military space service. The Report’s title is “Commission to Assess United States National Security Space Management and Organization”, and it was delivered nine days before the end of the Clinton administration on January 20, 2001.

The Report opens by affirming that its members were appointed in a bipartisan basis by the ranking members from both parties sitting on the Armed Services committees of the House of Representatives and Senate. It concentrated on space security and emphasized the importance of preventing a “Space Pearl Harbor” from a major adversary:

“An attack on elements of U.S. space systems during a crisis or conflict should not be considered an improbable act. If the U.S. is to avoid a “Space Pearl Harbor” it needs to take seriously the possibility of an attack on U.S. space systems. The nation’s leaders must assure that the vulnerability of the United States is reduced and that the consequences of a surprise attack on U.S. space assets are limited in their effects.” Space Commission Report, pp. viii-ix

In order to fully prepare for future contingencies in space, and any surprise attacks, the Commission report called for the establishment of a “Space Corps” as a new military service within the Department of the Air Force that would later evolve into a separate department:

“A Space Corps within the Department of the Air Force may be an appropriate model in its own right or a useful way station in the evolution toward a Space Department. One model is the Army Air Force’s relationship to the Army during World War II. Existing Air Force space forces, facilities, units and personnel, and military space missions could be transferred to a Corps. A Space Corps could have authority for acquisition and operation of space systems, perhaps to include both DoD and Intelligence Community systems, while leveraging existing Air Force logistics and support functions.” (Space Commission Report, p.81)

What’s surprising here is the remarkable similarity in what the Commission recommended,  with President Trump’s proposal for a Space Force that was presented 18 years later.

In Space Policy Directive-4, issued on February 19, 2019, Trump declared:

“the Department of Defense shall take actions under existing authority to marshal its space resources to deter and counter threats in space, and to develop a legislative proposal to establish a United States Space Force as a sixth branch of the United States Armed Forces within the Department of the Air Force. This is an important step toward a future military department for space.”

This two-step evolutionary process is an important clue that Space Force was not merely a spontaneous creation of Trump’s that appeared to be the case the first time it was raised by him in a “not really serious” manner at a speech at USMC Miramar Air Station in March 2018:

My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain just like the land, air and sea. We may even have a Space Force.… You know, I was saying it the other day cause we’re doing a tremendous amount of work in space. I said ‘maybe we need a new force, we’ll call it the space force.’ And I was not really serious, and then I said ‘what a great idea, maybe we’ll have to do that.’

The similarities between Trump’s Space Policy Directive-4 and the Space Commission Report 18 years earlier suggest that Trump was briefed by those familiar with the Report and the idea of a military space service still had serious backing within the Pentagon.

It’s important to emphasize the critical role played by Rumsfeld, who was appointed Chairman of the Commission, making its recommendations for a Space Corps. Rumsfeld’s importance is outlined by the reporter John Tirpak, who wrote about the Space Commission report for Air Force Magazine on March 1, 2001:

Over the past decade, military space has generated a stream of reports from blue-ribbon panels. However, the recommendations of this one could carry considerable weight because its chairman, Donald H. Rumsfeld, has become Secretary of Defense…. Rumsfeld resigned as chairman of the panel when President Bush tapped him to head the Pentagon, a scant two weeks before the commission published its final Report. However, the Report is said to reflect much of Rumsfeld’s thinking on space organization issues and could well serve as a blueprint for reorganization of military space.

Rumsfeld’s role led to General Ronald Fogelman, a newly retired USAF Chief of Staff (1994 -1997) and prominent member of the 2001 Space Commission publicly stating the creation of a Space Corps was imminent:

The commission’s chairman-Donald Rumsfeld-is now the Secretary of Defense, and so military space issues are fresh in his mind, said Fogleman. He added that some sort of restructuring likely will happen soon.

“If I were a betting man, I would bet you that in the [Defense Department] legislative proposal that comes to the Hill this year, this will be in there,” Fogleman said.

On September 10, 2001, Rumsfeld appeared on live television, saying that the Pentagon could not account for 2.3 trillion dollars in the fiscal year 1999.

This was money that could not be tracked by the Pentagon Inspector General, who had described similar anomalies with the Pentagon budget in 1998 and 2000. In my 2003 Black Budget Report, I explained how the missing trillions were part of a massive CIA run unofficial black budget created to fund a second Manhattan Project – a vast number of Unacknowledged Special Access Programs involving research and development of retrieved extraterrestrial technologies.

Rumsfeld said in his interview that he would wage a bureaucratic war to bring about changes to properly track money flowing through the Pentagon.

Rumsfeld’s remarkable admission was overshadowed the next day by the September 11 attack. His admission raises a number of possible explanations for this sequence of events and the effective shelving of a Space Corps for years to come.  

One explanation is that Rumsfeld was among a group of “White Hats” wanting to expose or redirect some of the black budget money flowing through the Pentagon to fund new projects such as his proposed Space Corps that would prevent a future Space Pearl Harbor.

A second explanation is that Rumsfeld was a “Black Hat” fully briefed about the upcoming false flag attack and wanted to release the news about the missing trillions at a time when it would be completely overshadowed by the upcoming false flag attack and the global war on terror that would subsequently dominate the Bush administration.

Finally, Rumsfeld was a “Gray Hat” who had to simultaneously play the conflicting roles of running the Pentagon’s global war on terror, which effectively prevented a Space Corps being created, while behind the scenes doing what was possible to nurture the idea of a future Space Corps.

The latter explanation is strengthened by the circumstances surrounding Rumsfeld’s sacking on December 18, 2016, due to him backing successive troop withdrawals from Iraq, and opposition to the surge recommended by senior military advisors that was implemented by his successor, Robert Gates, in January 2007.

Whatever the precise relationship between Rumsfeld, the missing trillions, funding a Space Corps, and the September 11 attacks are, one thing is clear. The subsequent war on terror led to Pentagon prioritizing funding for military interventions throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Potential funding for the creation of a Space Corps was shelved, and it was resurrected nearly two decades later by President Trump.

In the meantime, China has secretly built a large Space Navy which will soon be capable of conducting the Space Pearl Harbor envisaged in the 2001 Space Commission report. China’s secret Space Navy was revealed by Lt General Steven Kwast (USAF ret.) in a September 2019 lecture:

China is our competition. Russia is our competition. They see the power of the economy of space … and they are rushing to that future…. China has already built the organization, and has the strategy, the doctrine and the technology, and the builders for their guardian force in space. They are building a navy in space with the equivalent of battleships and destroyers that will be able to maneuver and kill and communicate with dominance.

Will Space Force be funded and expanded in time to prevent such an attack from occurring? Will it be able to successfully integrate a small but highly advanced number of antigravity spacecraft that were part of a USAF secret space program developed and deployed in the 1970s?

Currently, the U.S. Congress has not passed defense appropriations bills necessary for funding new projects envisaged by Space Force for 2021.  The delay has led to a rebuke of the Congressional delay by the Chief of Space Operations, General Jay Raymond, who is concerned that new Space Force projects will be delayed well into 2021.

Is this Congressional delay yet another stratagem by the Deep State to slow down the roll out of Space Force in order to facilitate a debilitating Space Pearl Harbor strike by China and/or another major adversary in the near future?

The following videoblog is my response to news that the US Congress is not going to pass the National Defense Authorization Act for 2021, which is necessary for Space Force to receive full funding for fiscal year 2021. I discuss General Ray Raymond’s criticism over why a “Continuing Resolution” creates a funding problem for Space Force, which effectively will be blocked from monitoring all that is going on in space. This is happening at a time when the Deep State is preparing false flag events using its space assets to impact the 2020 election. All this suggests the Deep State is sabotaging Space Force via a Congressional maneuver to blind its monitoring and interception capabilities.

On November 4, 2016, NASA, FEMA, the Department of Energy, Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), U.S. Air Force, and the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services collaborated in a planning exercise simulating a destructive asteroid impact set for September 20, 2020. The exercise planners envisaged that the asteroid, up to 800 feet (250 meters) in size, would hit somewhere along a narrow band across Southern California or just off the Pacific Coast.

Here’s what the NASA/JPL news release had to say about the simulated asteroid impact hypothesized to take place in three weeks time:

The exercise simulated a possible impact four years from now — a fictitious asteroid imagined to have been discovered this fall with a 2 percent probability of impact with Earth on September 20, 2020. The simulated asteroid was initially estimated to be between 300 and 800 feet (100 and 250 meters) in size, with a possibility of making impact anywhere along a long swath of Earth, including a narrow band of area that crossed the entire United States.

In the fictitious scenario, observers continued to track the asteroid for three months using ground-based telescope observations, and the probability of impact climbed to 65 percent. Then the next observations had to wait until four months later, due to the asteroid’s position relative to the sun. Once observations could resume in May of 2017, the impact probability jumped to 100 percent. By November of 2017, it was simulated that the predicted impact would occur somewhere in a narrow band across Southern California or just off the coast in the Pacific Ocean.

This is not the first or only simulated asteroid impact exercise designed by scientists and government agencies. A more recent asteroid impact exercise occurred in 2019 and hypothesized an asteroid impact for New York City on April 29, 2027. An asteroid similar in size to that envisaged earlier back in November 2016, would hit with a destructive force ranging from 100 to 800 megatons.

It’s worth noting that the largest hydrogen bomb test in history, the 1961 Tsar Bomba, had a destructive force of 50 megatons. “Coincidentally”, Russia just released classified footage of the Tsar Bomba showing its destructive effects in the remote Arctic region of Novaya Zemlya. Clearly, if an asteroid were to hit the continental U.S. or just off the Pacific Coast with anywhere near an 800 megaton destructive yield, an entire region would be devastated with an extremely high death toll.

What gives the September 20, 2020 asteroid impact simulation great relevance today is not the approaching target date for a  hypothetical asteroid impact, but a series of worrying scientific and political developments. These developments firmly point to a major false flag attack that is about to be unleashed by the Deep State in a last-ditch effort to prevent the 2020 Presidential election from occurring.

In evaluating the possibility that an asteroid impact is about to be staged in real life for a political agenda, it’s worth pointing out that Dr. Werner von Braun, former head of NASA’s Marshall Flight Center, was the first to reveal that a false flag asteroid attack would one day be staged by the Deep State.

In 1974, he confided in Carol Rosin, a former executive to Fairchild Industries, about a sequence of false flag events that would be orchestrated by the Deep State in order to promote their agenda for the weaponization of space. [link to earlier article]

Von Braun said that an asteroid attack would be orchestrated once the Deep State had exhausted earlier contrived threats posed in turn by the Russians, terrorists, and nations of concern. When such threats no longer carried the political justification for massive military spending, a new scenario would be thrust upon the American public in order to maintain and even increase military spending further. This would ultimately lead to the weaponization of space, according to Von Braun.

What makes Von Braun’s warning particularly important given the September 20 date set in the 2016 asteroid impact exercise is the closing of over 100 of the Earth’s largest observatories due to the COVID-19 crisis. There appears to be no real health justification for such unprecedented closures. After all, night-time telescopes are largely automated involving relatively few astronomers.

What makes this situation even more remarkable is the recent “accidental damage” to the Arecibo telescope in Puerto Rico. On August 11, 2020, a large cable snapped, making the observatory unusable for the foreseeable future. This means that at this critical time, when asteroids are regularly being reported to be just missing the Earth, there are currently very few astronomers observing the night sky.

According to Steven Jonowieck of the McDonald Observatory in Texas:

If everybody in the world stops observing, then we have a gap in our data that you can’t recover … This will be a period that we in the astronomy community have no data on what happened.

Jonowieck’s comment is critical since it confirms that there is no independent astronomical data on what is currently happening in space.  What makes this even more telling is that in the 2016 Asteroid Impact exercize set for September 2020, observatories played the key role in identifying and tracking the asteroid before its destructive impact.

Here’s what Shepard Ambellas, from Intellihub, had to say about the recent closing of observatories:

Defying all logic, a number of telescopes and observatories around the world remain closed amid the coronavirus pandemic while the impact risk of near-earth Earthbound objects remains at an all-time high. Over 100 telescopes have been reported to have been shut down in a move that virtually makes no sense and now one of the world’s largest radio telescopes named the Arecibo Observatory has been rendered inoperable after sustaining damage after cable unexpectedly snapped creating about a 100-foot long gash in the dish itself, furthering fueling the problem…

To make matters worse, the Puerto Rico-based telescope was tracking a near-Earth object when it went offline. Withal, there has never been a more perfect time for an asteroid to strike and the Department of Defense, the White House, and other agencies are aware.

With the closure of so many observatories, if the Deep State was planning to stage a false flag asteroid attack, this would be the perfect time for it. There would be relatively few professional astronomers with data that could refute the narrative put out by government agencies and mainstream news sources if a false flag event were to occur.

For example, if covert space weapons such as “Rods of God”, were used to simulate an asteroid strike, there would be few astronomers with data to challenge a contrived official narrative orchestrated by the Deep State using their worldwide media assets.

Why now? One powerful reason is the Deep State’s assessment through internal polling that Donald Trump is going to easily win the 2020 Presidential election. This is supported by multiple polls showing that Trump is making major inroads among independent and minority voters with his law and order approach. Joe Biden is also showing no real desire to get out to meet with voters, seriously tackle Trump head-on, and there are even calls now for him to abandon the debates.

Even impartial left-leaning observers, such as Dr. Jonathan Turley, a Georgetown University Professor, are mystified by the Democratic Party’s lack of desire to condemn the riots and violence that has affected major urban areas and led to social chaos. This is leading to a massive swing to Trump as the law and order President.

It’s as though Democratic leaders have abandoned any hope of winning the election and are promoting widespread social chaos in the hope of pinning the blame on Trump in a desperate Hail Mary move.

What the above circumstantial evidence suggests is that rather than have Trump win another election, the Deep State is instead about to unleash a major false flag operation to prevent the 2020 election from occurring.

This would create even more chaos since the U.S. Constitution has no provision for President Trump remaining in office beyond January 20, 2021. This would also impact the House of Representatives and 1/3 of Senators who are facing reelection on November 3, and whose terms expire on January 3, 2021.

This is how Alan Dershowitz, a retired Harvard University Professor, who has Deep State ties through his close association with the convicted pedophile, Jeffery Epstein, frames the issue:

What does the Constitution provide in the event that an emergency precludes an election before the end of a term of the president? … We begin, of course, with the words of the Constitution…. the 20th Amendment says “the terms of the president and vice president shall end at noon” on January 20. Nothing could seem clearer…

But if there is no election, there is no president elect nor vice president elect. Congress does provide for a line of succession to the White House “if by reason of death, resignation, removal from office, inability, or failure to qualify,” there is neither a president nor a vice president…. However, even if Congress has the authority to fill this gap in the Constitution, it is unclear that it has done so with the existing law, because the line of succession begins with the House speaker.

But there would be no House speaker if there were no election, because there would be no House, all of whose members would be up for election in November. The terms of all members of the House would end, as stated in the Constitution, on January 3…

There would, however, be a Senate, with a majority of its members not up for election in November and, therefore, still serving their terms. This is important as the next in line would be the president pro tempore of the Senate, which is Charles Grassley. However, if there were no election, there may be a Democratic majority among the remaining senators not up for reelection, unless sitting governors or state legislators were allowed to fill vacant seats, which is another issue.

Dershowitz is pointing out that without an election, it would be up to the rump of U.S. Senate to select the next U.S. President. The two-thirds of the Senators that would still be serving until their terms ended either on January 3, 2023 or 2025, would make the necessary choices.

Out of the 65 sitting U.S. Senators who are not up for reelection in 2020, 33 are Democrats, 30 are Republicans, and 2 are Independents – Bernie Sanders and Angus King. Both Sanders and King caucus with the Democrats. This means that in the scenario of an abandoned 2020 Presidential election, after January 3, the current Majority Leader, Mitch McConnel, and President Pro-Tempore, Chuck Grassley, would be replaced by Democrats who would now be the majority party with a voting advantage of 35 to 30.

The new President Pro-Tempore of the U.S. Senate would be either Chuck Schumer (current Senate Minority Leader) or the replacement to the current Democratic Whip since Richard Durbin is among those who would lose his current position (Senate Minority Whip).  Being fourth in the Presidential line of succession, after the positions of President, Vice President, and House Majority Leader positions all become vacate on January 3 and 20, 2021, Schumer or Durbin’s replacement would  become the new President. New federal elections would then be scheduled according to the timetable and agenda of the now Democratic-controlled Senate.

What strengthens such an alarming scenario, which would nullify President Trump’s reelection campaign, is Nancy Pelosi’s recent strange claims about the Presidential chain of succession and Continuity of Government, which were made in a recent interview on MSNBC:

“Whether he [Donald Trump] knows it or not he will be leaving ,.. Just because he might not want to move out of the White House doesn’t mean we won’t have an inauguration ceremony to inaugurate a duly elected President of the United States.”… Pelosi’s statements were made after she had attended last month’s Continuity of Government meeting in which the Pentagon had revealed to top officials in the chain of succession to the presidency that there is a chance for a potential disaster to strike before the elections which could cripple the U.S and other countries.

Pelosi appears to be alluding to some Continuity of Government crisis that leads to Trump’s removal from office and the installation of a “duly elected” President after some natural disaster.

In sum, Von Braun’s warning of a future false flag asteroid impact, the closure of over 100 major observatories, swarms of recent asteroid near misses, the self-defeating electoral strategy of the Democratic Party in encouraging riots and social chaos, Joe Biden’s bizarre absence from serious politicking, Nancy Pelosi’s strange reference to Continuity of Government and Presidential succession rules, and finally Alan Dershowitz’s description of how the abandonment of the 2020 election would force Trump to leave office on January 20, 2021, all point to a Deep State plan to prevent Trump from being re-elected.

A contrived asteroid strike on the U.S. using covertly deployed space weapons controlled by the Deep State would lead to catastrophic destruction and almost certainly the abandonment of the November 3 federal elections.

The Deep State strategy would then be to run out the clock so that on January 20, Trump’s position as President is vacated as required by the Constitution. There would also no longer be a serving House of Representatives, and all that would be left is a rump U.S. Senate that would be controlled by the Democratic Party.

Could such a diabolical plan actually succeed in both deceiving the American public through a false flag asteroid attack and preventing President Trump’s all but inevitable reelection?

Currently, the U.S. Space Force is in the process of integrating all space assets from the different military services in a comprehensive way that would prevent such a false fIag event from occurring. Historically, the Deep State has used assets from the U.S. military, intelligence community, and major aerospace corporations for false flag attacks such as the September 11, 2001 “terrorist attack”, and the failed January 13, 2018, Hawaii ballistic missile attack.

Space Force will eventually end that practice as far as military space assets are concerned. Space Force’s rapid integration process is something that greatly worries the Deep State as I will explain in my upcoming September 26 webinar, “Why Space Force Terrifies the Deep State and Rogue Secret Space Programs”.

However, the Deep State still has significant space assets from the U.S. intelligence community, major aerospace corporations, and even foreign powers (China), that it could co-opt for a false flag asteroid impact event. Space Force and “White Hats” in the U.S. Military Industrial Complex will have to closely monitor these “rogue” space assets to ensure they would not be coopted into such a false flag event.

There is compelling circumstantial evidence pointing to a Deep State plan to launch a false flag asteroid attack, or some other contrived “natural disaster”, sometime between September 20 and the November 3, 2020, federal elections. However, widespread public awareness of such a diabolical plan and proactive intervention by Space Force or White Hats can prevent such a plan from being successful.

In a video interview released today, Corey Goode unpacks a series five tweets he released on August 16 where he shared new developments on secret military arrests, QAnon, a UFO disclosure war, a possible China coup, a rogue ballistic submarine that is part of a CIA “Dark Fleet”, and major disclosures to come in 2021 of an SSP also called the “Dark Fleet” originally created by a breakaway group of German nationalists in Antarctica. In the interview, Goode responds to my questions about the resumption of informal briefings he has begun receiving again from reliable sources in the intelligence community after a lapse of more than a year, along with what we can expect in the future.

To read Corey Goode’s series of five tweets go to my August 17 article analyzing them, “Insider Reveals UFO & Secret Space Program Disclosure War”

For more articles on Corey Goode’s Secret Space Program Disclosures click here.

Michael Salla, Ph.D.

On August 16, Secret Space Program (SSP) insider Corey Goode released some new intelligence data he received from his sources about competing groups fighting over how, what, and when to disclose information about UFOs and SSPs. What follows is a review of what Goode tweeted and my thoughts on its significance.

For those new to Goode or who question his authenticity as an insider, I recommend this article where I explain my reasoning for why he is the real deal and why his info is worth examining.

This is what Goode wrote about secret arrests and transfers to Gitmo:

Secret MS13 Arrests/Gitmo are giving the Alliance leverage against Cent American/Mexican Corrupt Leaders/Cabal (AIC/yelgnaL<-) Drug/Human Trafficking Operations. These corrupt leaders are now cooperating w/Alliance.

Goode is here confirming that joint covert operations that involve US special forces are taking part in the arrests and detentions of those involved in human trafficking, including CIA operators [AIC/yelgnaL<-]. Such operations were made possible by an Executive Order issued by President Donald Trump on December 27, 2017. I discussed Goode’s information about US special forces being used in this regard in a January 2018 article.

Goode next describes the struggle between the different White Hat groups that make up the Earth/SSP Alliance over which out of between 2-6 agendas should be implemented for humanity’s future:

In recent months the Alliance has become non-centralized w up 2 ‘6 different agendas’ now at play? Attempts to re-centralize them is underway. Internal battle over ‘Disclosures’? Negotiations underway? Op of Infiltration/Division/Civil War within the QMunity & Alliance averted?

Goode’s reference to an attempt to infiltrate and divide the Q movement being averted likely refers to an August 14 video by Redpill78 exposing an individual claiming to be Q, Austin Steinbart, as a LARPer.

Especially pertinent is Goode’s reference to “internal battle over Disclosures”. This tells us that the unprecedented UFO disclosure initiatives being taken by Congress, the Pentagon, and the mainstream media are a result of competing groups with their own unique agendas. I give an overview of this disclosure battle in a two-part series of articles (here and here), and will go into more detail with new information in my upcoming August 22 webinar: Full Disclosure vs Limited Hangouts.

Goode goes on to explain how an alliance between White Hat secret space program groups (SSP Alliance) that had coalesced around the US Navy’s Solar Warden program, which he began working with back in March 2015, has been mostly in hiding. This was due to one of the SSP Alliance’s high level assets, Sigmund, being assassinated by the Cabal/Deep State, through a SSP called the Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate (ICC). Despite going dark, the Alliance has been very active in infiltrating and sabotaging the ICC, according to Goode:

SSP Alliance leadership mostly in hiding since Sigmund’s death? SSP Alliance operatives involved in sabotage within the ICC? Guerilla warfare in Space? ‘Disclosure’ narratives battle? SSP Alliance no longer able to penetrate the Global Defense Grid for briefings/Tech Disclosures?

Once again, Goode refers to competing agendas in a “‘Disclosure’ narratives battle?” More concerning is his reference to the inability of the SSP Alliance to get information about the “Global Defense Grid”. This suggests that the Cabal/Deep State/ICC has been able to successfully shield its plans and operations to create a modern Skynet through corporations such as Space X, which is in the process of deploying its Starlink network comprising thousands of small satellites.  

Next, Goode goes on to tell us that the operations of the “Dark Fleet” (DF), a secret space program created by a German breakaway group in Antarctica that relocated to Mars in the 1960s (see my Antarctica’s Hidden History for more details), are to be unveiled by the SSP Alliance in 2021.

SSP Alliance finished compiling Sigmund’s ‘Dark Fleet Intel’? 2 B released in 2021? Full narrative & roles of operatives? History of DF & its infiltration into other SSP programs 2 B revealed? ICC Super Board Infiltration/Purge details? Disinfo/SRA/LARP Purge? Disclosure War?

This is very encouraging news. Detailed intel about both the Dark Fleet and the “Superboard” of transnational corporate executives running the ICC may be revealed in 2021. In February 2018, there were rumors that an agreement had been reached between the Dark Fleet and a representative from the Trump administration, Former Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, where the German program would be revealed, and advanced aerospace technologies released into the public arena.

If the information was accurate, as circumstantial evidence at the time suggested, then the agreement was not implemented, likely due to Deep State/ICC opposition. Perhaps, it is the weakening of the Deep State/ICC, through the series of setbacks described by Goode, which has now made it possible for such an agreement to be implemented. The truth about the Dark Fleet would then be finally revealed to the world.

It’s perhaps not coincidental then that the Shadowgate documentary has just been released, showing the power and reach of transnational corporations in massive computer influence operations all over the planet.

Finally, we have Goode’s tweet about a secret CIA [AIC<-] naval battle group that has been “mostly captured” by Earth alliance after its crew mutinied.

Secret (AIC<-) Naval Fleet ‘mostly captured’? IAC Recruited Navy Vets mutinied against Cabal? Black AIC prison barge captured? Remaining submarine under the protection of rogue China assets? China Coup brewing? False Flag WW Attempt? Spaceforce/Missile Defense assets on alert?

This is the same mysterious naval group that launched the false flag missile attack on Hawaii on January 13, 2018, that was intended to start a nuclear war between the US and North Korea. This would have drawn China into the battle thereby leading to World War III. Thankfully, the rogue missile was intercepted by a US Air Force run secret space program, which I wrote about here.

Goode is now telling us that a remnant of the CIA naval group has found refuge in China, and there is a possibility of a major coup there and/or another false flag attempt to spark a nuclear war between China and the US. Space Force and its assets are on full alert to monitor the situation.

It has been more than a year that Goode’s sources have been silent about the issues discussed above. The fact that he has again started receiving such intelligence suggests that we are in the final stages of a titanic battle between opposing groups and factions in control of their respective SSPs. More to come as Goode said he will release additional  information soon through his YouTube channel, which you can subscribe to here.

On August 10, the newly created U.S. Space Force released its “Spacepower Doctrine,” defining its core identity and missions in space. Space Force will consider outer space to be a warfighting domain wherein military force will be projected into the Earth-Moon orbital environments to protect U.S. national interests and security.

In the short term, this means Space Force will compete with the rival aerospace forces established by China and Russia for space superiority. In the long term, Space Force is destined to clash with secret space programs run by a shadowy consortium of transnational corporations, and an even more elusive “Dark Fleet”.

The latter is claimed by multiple insiders to belong to a German breakaway colony that transferred from Antarctica to Mars, taking with it, millions of people recruited by false inducements or forced into a life of slave labor.

The 40-page document titled “Space Capstone Publication: Spacepower Doctrine for Space Forces” sets the tone for what follows with a 1962 statement by former President John F. Kennedy:

The eyes of the world now look into space, to the moon and to the planets beyond, and we have vowed that we shall not see it governed by a hostile flag of conquest, but by a banner of freedom and peace. [p. xiv]

The primary purpose of the document is described as follows:

The Space Capstone Publication is the inaugural doctrine manual for the United States Space Force, providing a basis for training and education, and informs decision-making, mission analysis, objectives, and the development of military space strategy in support of national security, national defense, and national military strategies. [p. xiv]

The document describes how space has dramatically changed from a domain involving peaceful cooperation and scientific exploration by the international community:

Space was once a sanctuary from attack, but the emergence, advanced development, and proliferation of a wide range of demonstrated counterspace weapons by potential adversaries has reversed this paradigm. Today, space, like all other domains, is realized to be contested due to the increasing threat to orbiting assets by adversary weapons systems. There is no forward edge of the battle area behind which military spacecraft can reconstitute and recover. Spacecraft remain in orbit through peace and war where they are potentially at risk from adversary counterspace capabilities and the hostile space environment. [p. 7]

The document goes on to explain how Space Force plans to integrate other nations sharing common interests similar to how the NATO Alliance was formed around the U.S. as the driving force to prevent aggression from the Warsaw Pact:

Military space forces are the warfighters who protect, defend, and project spacepower. They provide support, security, stability, and strategic effects by employing spacepower in, from, and to the space domain. This necessitates close collaboration and  cooperation with the U.S. Government, Allies, and partners and in accordance with domestic and international law. [p. xiii]

Space Force, however, plans to be far more than merely a multinational military operation:

Spacepower requires explorers, diplomats, entrepreneurs, scientists, developers, and warfighters. Military space forces — protectors of America’s space interests — are first and foremost the warfighters who protect, defend, and project U.S. spacepower. These professionals must simultaneously commit themselves to two demanding professions: warfighting and the mastery of space. [p. xiv]

Space Force’s overall mission is stated to be vital to long term U.S. national interest:

Access to space is essential to U.S. prosperity and security — it is a national imperative. The many benefits our Nation derives from space include mass communications, financial and economic information networks, public safety, weather monitoring, and military technology. Like any source of national power, the United States must cultivate, develop, and protect these benefits in order to secure continued prosperity. [p. 12]

Space is considered to be the future of economic growth and entrepreneurial activity, which is high among Space Force’s core goals:

Today, the entirety of economic and military space activities is confined to the geocentric regime; however, commercial investments and new technologies have the potential to expand the reach of vital National space interests to the cislunar regime and beyond in the near future. As technology marches forward, U.S. military spacepower must harmonize with the other instruments of power to protect, defend, and maintain the Nation’s strategic interests in space. [p. 14]

As far as future military conflict in space is concerned and the role of international law, this is what Space Force’s capstone document has to say:

Military spacepower is inextricably linked to war. Military space forces must operate in this new warfighting domain to contribute to winning our Nation’s wars. Thus, war’s enduring nature and modern character shape and define military spacepower… [p. 16]

In keeping with international law, the United States acknowledges that the use of space is for peaceful purposes, while preparing for the reality that space must be defended from those who will seek to undermine our goals in space. [p. 17]

The capstone document provides an expansive view of potential enemies in space, and what Space Force needs to be prepared to do to protect U.S. interests:

Space warfare targets the mind of an adversary and seeks to neutralize their capability and will to resist. Military space forces compete against thinking actors who threaten our Nation’s prosperity, security, or political aims. Thus, military space forces must prepare to outwit, outmaneuver, and dominate thinking, competent, and lethal aggressors who are attempting to thwart U.S. actions…

Military spacepower cannot unilaterally win wars, but like landpower, seapower, airpower, or cyberpower, its success, absence, or failure could prove catastrophically decisive in war. Because military spacepower has the potential to be the difference between victory and defeat, it must be viewed with equal importance as military power in any other domain. This observation is the strategic imperative for creating the United States Space Force as an independent military Service capable of maximizing military spacepower as a distinct and vital formulation of military power. [p. 21]

Evaluating the full significance of the capstone document requires appreciating both the near and long term challenges that Space Force has to face. In the short term, Space Force has to deal with the aerospace forces of both China and Russia, which have been modernizing rapidly with the growth in their respective economies.

China’s economy, measured in Purchasing Power Parity, has already overtaken the U.S., and it is steadily increasing its military expenditures, especially in space which it considers to be the strategic high ground and the U.S. military’s Achilles Heel.

The possibility of China launching a “Space Pearl Harbor” is something that weighs heavily on the minds of U.S. military strategists, as I discuss at length in Rise of the Red Dragon (2020). Space Force’s immediate goal will be to protect the U.S. satellite grid from a surprise Chinese attack, which would otherwise incapacitate the U.S. military all over the planet.

However, it is the long-term challenges to Space Force that are the most intriguing, and require considering a much wider scope of covert activities that have been occurring in space that date back to the World War II era.

It is crucial to keep in mind that Space Force will be covertly absorbing a Secret Space Program (SSP) established by the U.S. Air Force. The USAF SSP, which I described at length in the U.S. Air Force Secret Space Program and Shifting Extraterrestrial Alliances (2019), has covertly deployed squadrons of spacecraft using advanced antigravity propulsion, new energy technologies, and electromagnetic weapons systems.

These craft were reverse engineered from captured German and extraterrestrial spacecraft acquired after the end of World War II. Major US aerospace corporations collaborated with a transnational corporate consortium to secretly build these advanced craft for the USAF. The most advanced craft, however, were built for other customers, including a corporate-run SSP called the Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate.

For much of its history, the USAF SSP operated covertly, performed ad hoc missions, had dubious legal standing, was funded by a CIA controlled black budget, and worked closely with the Deep State, a transnational corporate space program, and breakaway German colony in Antarctica.

All that changed in 2017, when the USAF learned about a far more powerful and better equipped US Navy SSP deploying battle groups led by kilometer long space carriers. Leaders of the USAF SSP realized that they had been deceived by the Deep State and their corporate/German allies who had not provided the most advanced technologies to them, as promised. See my 2019 book for more details on why the USAF SSP shifted its allegiance.

The emergence of Space Force will eventually end the chaotic and ad hoc operations of the USAF SSP, and transfer all of the latter’s space assets into the control of a highly disciplined, transparent and lawfully established military space service working for U.S. national interests.

The ramifications of the Space Capstone Publication are therefore vitally important when considered in the context of how the assets of the USAF SSP were historically used to aid rogue operations contrived and controlled by the Deep State.

The long-term challenges faced by Space Force are fivefold. First, it will have to deal with nation-state peers such as China and Russia, which have the capability of launching a Space Pearl Harbor.

Second, Space Force will need to manage the more technologically advanced space programs of rogue non-state entities, the Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate and the Dark Fleet, which possess fleets of more advanced and powerful spacecraft.  

Third, Space Force is destined to eventually merge with the US Navy SSP, whereby it becomes fully capable of handling threats posed by national rivals, rogue space entities, and aggressive extraterrestrial civilizations.

Fourth, Space Force will eventually have to confront an illicit galactic slave trade where millions of humans are taken off-planet each year and traded into a life of slavery. Will history repeat itself whereby Space Force emerges as a modern day Royal Navy whose 19th century West Africa Squadron intercepted slave ships on the high seas, but now ends the slave trade in Deep Space?

Finally, how much and when will Space Force leaders disclose to the American and World publics the truth about the dire situation confronting humanity with multiple secret space programs and extraterrestrial civilizations interacting with one another, and humanity?  Will Space Force be a conduit for full disclosure or limited hangouts that deceive humanity for years to come?

Further Reading

Classified briefings given to staffers and officials from the U.S. Congress and Pentagon by Dr. Eric Davis on UFO/UAP reports have taken on great significance due to a July 23 New York Times story breaking the news that they were being briefed about “off-world vehicles not made on this earth”. In part one of this series, I discussed a 2019 interview with Dr. Davis, where he shared his knowledge of Special Access Programs, including a UFO crash retrieval project as providing the best insight into what he revealed in his classified briefings.

In the interview, Davis spoke of the lack of success scientists had in reverse engineering the “off-world vehicles” due to difficulties in understanding the new physics operating in the recovered craft. Of particular note was his belief that the reverse engineering program suffered from a lack of funding, which he explained as follows:

[1:23:43 Y.T.] So here’s the thing that you should know is that the crash retrieval program is a very small program. It is not a massive, huge government infrastructure…. It’s a very poorly funded program, and it hasn’t actually, probably hasn’t had money for a while.

Davis’ comment aligns with the revelations of Bob Lazar, who says he was recruited in late 1988 for a reverse engineering program at the remote S-4 facility at Area 51 on a flying saucer craft of extraterrestrial origin that was approximately 50 feet in diameter and 20 feet high.

In Dreamland: An Autobiography (2019), Lazar wrote about his surprise over the lack of people working on the highly classified project, called Galileo, compared to similar important projects at Los Alamos National Laboratory:

I did wonder briefly why it was that what seemed to me to be a relatively small group of people were working on a project that had the kinds of implications that this one did. Los Alamos and the project to produce nuclear bombs involved an enormous number of people and resources… For all I knew, there were teams all over the country working on this same project as Barry and I. At least I wanted to believe that. I wasn’t so egotistical as to believe that I was one of only a select few working on something so monumentally important as this was. [Dreamland: An Autobiography, p. 58]

Davis and Lazar’s comments appear odd given what is known about the “deep black budget” created by the CIA in 1949 to secretly fund extraterrestrial related advanced technology projects. As I have shown in my 2004 Black Budget report, the funding available for such projects is actually massive, exceeding over a trillion dollars annually, greatly exceeding the entire Pentagon budget according to estimates spanning the years 1997-2000.

Clearly, the vast sums were going elsewhere, as Lazar suspected, rather than the reverse engineering project(s) Davis and Lazar were exposing. This raises suspicion that Lazar’s project, as well as the one Admiral Thomas Wilson had attempted to learn about (see part one), were in fact red herrings, distractions, designed to misinform UFO researchers and the general public when they learned about them.

What strengthens such a suspicion is what Davis had to say about the reverse engineering program’s termination in 1989, the same year Lazar emerged as a whistleblower. This makes it all but certain that Davis was referring to Project Galileo, the very program Lazar had been involved with at the S-4 facility.

According to Davis, the scientists were unable to sufficiently communicate to understand the new physics behind the craft due to the compartmentalization security procedures that were in place:

[1:24:00 Y.T.] I do know that the program was terminated in 1989 for a lack of progress in reverse engineering anything that they had, any of the hardware that they had, and every so often, so many years go by, and they’ll try it again. And they just don’t succeed because compartmentalization is a killer. Scientists cannot communicate with other scientists to get help.

Davis pointed out that the difficulties experienced by scientists working in the crash retrieval program are common in compartmentalized projects where scientists are prevented from sharing their problems with outside experts who normally are called upon in similar situations in the open-source world:

[ 1:25:44 Y.T.] So this isn’t just unique to the crash retrieval program. This type of problem is unique to all the black programs that the DoD has, DHS has, and the military services branches has them, the Department of Energy has their own versions…. The purpose of a black program with a special access program security rap, is you got to limit the information and exposure to the information to as few people as possible in order to produce the maximum security protection against espionage by the enemy. And so that limits who you can work with that also is cleared to know. That limits the amount of experts that you can have working with you.

And gosh, you know, if your small group of experts are stumped, you’re screwed, because you basically can’t call your buddies or somebody you know, or somebody you know of, who’s an expert better than you … a bigger expert on the subject at a university either near you or at a university across the country, you can’t call those guys. You can’t even read them in because you’re not supposed to acknowledge some of these black, most of these black programs, they’re not supposed to be acknowledged.

Not coincidentally, Lazar made the same criticism over lack of progress in Project Galileo:

The system under which we operated, how Naval Intelligence (or whatever agency truly guided these efforts) insisted upon compartmentalization and secrecy got in the way of all of us doing our jobs easily and productively. Given that there was a metallurgy group functioning somewhere on the base where Barry and I had worked, you’d think it would be an easy matter to get a company directory, dial that line (these were pre-Internet days so no email) and request the answer to our question. Because all our efforts were so segregated and knowledge not shared, that was impossible for us to do. I can cite a half dozen or more examples of how this inefficient system worked against our efforts to be productive but that one should suffice. (Dreamland: An Autobiography, p. 66).

Consequently, Davis’ statement of such programs ending back in 1989 due to a lack of success is consistent with Lazar’s revelations. In Lazar’s autobiography, he wrote about what he read about setbacks in earlier failed reverse engineering attempts in a briefing document given to him when he arrived at S-4 for his first day of work in January 1989:

Though no dates were given, it was clear to me that the project was not in its infancy. Some references were made to past attempts to understand the nature of the power and propulsion system. Several attempts had been made to reproduce the kind of system that had come into their hands, but with no success…. I next read that a previous attempt to dismantle one of the existent propulsion systems had resulted in an accidental explosion.  (Dreamland: An Autobiography, p. 44)

Ever since Lazar publicly emerged, he has revealed in multiple interviews how the reverse engineering project suffered from funding, had relatively few scientists working on it, and how scientists were handicapped from making breakthroughs due to stifling security constraints.

Lazar’s revelations align closely with what Davis revealed in his interview, and what he subsequently shared with the Congressional staffers and Pentagon officials about the failed reverse engineering project.

Once again, both Davis and Lazar’s observations appear awry with what others have claimed based on direct eyewitness testimony of reverse engineered flying saucer craft.

For example, one of Dr. Greer’s Disclosure Project witnesses, Mark McCandlish said that in 1988, the same year Lazar was recruited to work at S-4, a highly classified airshow featuring three reverse engineered flying saucers was held at Edwards Air Force Base. The three craft were sighted by a patent illustrator, Brad Sorenson, who says that the craft had been built by an unnamed major aerospace company, one that hosted one of the corporate development facilities at Edward’s Plant 42.

As professional patent illustrators, both Sorenson and McCandlish are experts in replicating the designs of advanced aerospace craft. McCandlish provided the following illustration of what Sorenson had witnessed.

McCandlish’s testimony is consistent with the testimony of other credible witnesses, which I have discussed at length in the U.S. Air Force Secret Space Program (2019). They have spoken of the success of reverse engineering efforts concerning flying saucers and other advanced aerospace technologies going all the way back to the 1950s.

High among the list of credible witnesses is Ben Rich, the former head of Lockheed Martin’s Skunkworks, who repeatedly made references to Lockheed having the technology “to take E.T. home.” At the end of public lectures, he would famously finish with a slide showing a flying saucer and saying: “We now have the technology to take E.T. home”.

His comment always got a big laugh from his audience who were fans of the movie, E.T., but privately Rich shared with colleagues what was really going on in the classified programs that Skunkworks was involved in:

We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity…. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do.

If one accepts the information provided by McCandlish, Rich and others that flying saucer shaped craft have been successfully reverse engineered, built and deployed, where does that leave us with the testimonies provided by Eric Davis and Bob Lazar?

It’s quite a stretch to believe Davis’ contention, which is corroborated by Lazar’s experiences, that reverse engineering efforts effectively stopped in 1989 due to setbacks, difficulties posed by the compartmentalization process, and lack of funding. The alleged lack of funding is patently absurd given the enormous “black budget” that is annually generated by the CIA and funneled into the Pentagon for unacknowledged special access programs.

A more reasonable conclusion is that such reverse engineering efforts were being conducted elsewhere than at Area 51’s S-4 facility – as Lazar himself suspected. Unlike S-4, which was more a museum designed to hoodwink visitors into believing flying saucers had been retrieved but were far too advanced to successfully reverse engineer, the real reverse engineering was secretly being conducted elsewhere.

Well-funded corporate aerospace facilities such as Lockheed’s Skunkworks division located at Plant 42, Edwards Air Force Base, are among the most likely candidates, especially given what McCandlish, Rich, and others have shared. More recently, testimonial evidence has emerged that the Tic Tac craft sighted by Navy pilots in 2004, were built at Plant 42 on behalf of the U.S. Air Force.

The fact that the New York Times has given prominent coverage of Davis briefing Congressional staffers and Pentagon officials, around the same time that Lazar’s testimony is gaining widespread public exposure due to a new film and autobiographical book does raise legitimate questions over whether this is all part of a limited hangout.

Davis and Lazar appear to be unwitting pawns in a sophisticated psychological operation that dates back to at least 1989, which began with Lazar. The purpose of the psyop appears to be very transparent. Deceive the public about the successful reverse engineering of flying saucer and other antigravity aerospace technologies in corporate facilities, and to sidetrack the public into focusing on government-run facilities such as S-4, which were unsuccessful in their reverse engineering efforts.

I will explore the above scenario in-depth in my upcoming August 22 Webinar, “Full Disclosure vs. Limited Hangouts“, which will also explore contemporary efforts to portray UFOs as alien threats.

The ultimate goal is to set the stage for a false flag alien event – either an alien invasion as speculated by many in the past; or the even more intriguing possibility, given an increasing series of predicted  global disasters about to occur, of an “alien rescue”!

On July 23, the New York Times released an article describing classified UFO briefings delivered to the US Congress and the Pentagon by Dr. Eric Davis, a prominent astrophysicist, researching “out of the box” scientific phenomena since 1996. The authors of the New York Times story, Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal, provided few details of the briefings other than Davis’ sensational claim that UFOs (aka UAPs) involved “off-world vehicles not made on this earth”.

The New York Times article was quickly picked up by other major media such as the Huffington Post, Popular Mechanics, and popular news sites that included Yahoo News. More recently, Scientific American called for a resumption of scientific studies on UFOs in a very telling sign that mainstream scientists are finally paying attention.

Senator Marco Rubio was informed about the classified briefing given by Dr. Davis to staffers from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which Rubio currently heads. He subsequently arranged for his Committee to give a bipartisan vote of approval (14-1) for the Intelligence Community to write up a comprehensive report on UFOs/UAPs in 180 days after the Bill’s passage into law.

Significantly, the Director of National Intelligence was instructed that the “report shall be submitted in unclassified form, but may include a classified annex”. This means that the report is intended to be released to the general public.

What is missing in the New York Times article and subsequent news stories are the precise details of what Davis briefed members of Congress and Pentagon officials. It can be assumed that the briefings involved information derived from a 15-page leaked transcript/summary of an October 16, 2002 conversation between Dr. Davis and Vice Admiral Thomas Wilson, who retired as the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, only a few months before the meeting.

I covered the Davis and Wilson leaked document in a three-part series (available here, here and here). Put simply, the document revealed Wilson’s failed efforts in 1997 to gain access to an Unacknowledged Special Access Program, which he had learned involved a corporation studying a retrieved UFO/extraterrestrial craft. Wilson had hoped Davis could shed light on what was happening in the corporate reverse engineering program.

While it is highly likely that parts of the 15-page document were included in Davis’ classified briefings to Congressional staffers and Pentagon officials, we don’t know what conclusions Davis had reached about what Wilson had confidentially shared with him. The leaked document focused on Wilson’s experiences, rather than what Davis knew about the topic.

Consequently, an interview given by Davis on May 10, 2019, five months before his briefing to Congressional staffers, where he gave his evaluation of UFOs and extraterrestrial life becomes highly significant. The interview gives us a very good idea of what Davis told Congress and the Pentagon, which has now been made an issue of national importance due to the New York Times story, and the looming Intelligence Community report destined to emerge in early 2021.

In fact, a strong case can be made that Davis’ briefings will be used as the fulcrum of a UFO/UAP disclosure narrative that will emerge in early 2021 with the release of the unclassified intelligence UAP report to Congress. This is where there is much in what Davis told Congressional staffers and Pentagon officials that raises alarming red flags that a “limited hangout” is being prepared over classified programs involving the retrieval and reverse engineering of crashed UFOs.

While the truth will be told of the non-Earthly origin of some retrieved UFOs, the successful reverse engineering of such craft by major aerospace corporations will be hidden from the public, along with the existence of visiting extraterrestrial life.

What follows is my analysis of Davis’s comments in the interview he conducted with Alejandro Rojas from Open Minds TV, which is available both in audio form on YouTube and as a rough transcript from an automated translation. I have corrected Rojas’ rough transcript using the original interview in my extracts below, which include the YouTube timestamps [YT].

In discussing the origins of the three videos showing UFO craft videotaped by Navy pilots in 2004 and 2015, and officially acknowledged as genuine by the Department of the Navy, Davis declares such advanced technology has not been developed by any government or nation:

[29:28 YT] In a matter of three to five seconds, you’re not basically talking about human technology. There is no Russian or Chinese or North Korean or Iranian or anybody else. No, NATO or any other Alliance, or non-Alliance country, non-Allied countries have any sort of technology that can perform the way these Tic Tacs were found to be performing….

The things we’re seeing are not shaped in the usual typical way that we humans would shape them. So you, you got to come up with another hypothesis and the only hypothesis is something unknown. And then its got a good chance that it’s not human technology….

Davis goes on to assert that the UFOs are operating on a new physics and humanity currently doesn’t have the means to replicate this:

[37:44 YT] In other words, they don’t, the objects don’t follow the aerodynamic rules of engineering. Okay, they just don’t. Okay, and that’s driven by physics. And they are not saying that they’re breaking the laws of physics. So don’t quote me on anything having to do with why they’re operating on a new physics, we have an event, or no, they’re breaking the laws of physics, it is possible to operating on the physics we haven’t invented or haven’t discovered yet. That’s possible, we don’t know. So anyway, the point is, is that these things are operating there you go way outside the envelope of our engineering and physics technologies. And, and I can guarantee you that no laws of physics are broken whatsoever.

Davis declares that the UFOs and their advanced flight capacities are not something that can be manufactured given the present level of technological development on Earth:

[38:58 YT] And these things don’t look like anything that we can manufacture on Earth. So we don’t have the manufacturing or industrial technology for it. We don’t have engineering for it. In other words, the blueprints and designs to get something … shaped like air fighter-sized piece of candy mouth mint and get that to fly through the air stably. And do the wonderful things that they do in the years reported by the F-18 pilots associated with the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group.

Davis is then asked about the truth of reports of UFO crashes and whether the craft have been retrieved for classified studies. He answers:  

[1:14:32 YT] Yeah, there have been crashes. The super powers on the Earth have had their share of crashes. And they have recovered the vehicles from their crashes.

Davis goes on to explain how the truth about classified studies of recovered alien spacecraft is kept from most public officials:

[1:15:30 YT] So yeah, they have that technology. We do too. And it’s a very super sensitive topic. Because it’s something that your listeners, you’re probably going to be shocked at… probably a minute fraction, it’s like less than 1/1000th or 1/100,000th of the people with the “need to know” access, “need to know” authorization, and security clearances to be involved with that type of work, are the only ones that know. The vast majority of the rest of the government really doesn’t know. And that’s why one hand, like the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing…

Davis was likely referring to the process whereby even senior military officials like Admiral Wilson, with high level security clearances and “need to know” authorization, was still denied access to classified studies of retrieved non-Earthly spacecraft.

Davis elaborates on the complexity of the security clearances system in finding the truth about what’s happening in unacknowledged special access programs:

[1:16:16 YT] Because of the stovepipe thing that goes on in compartmentalized programs … you just can’t knock on doors and say, Hey, here’s who I am … I got clearances, but not the right ones. I don’t have a need to know. But I want to know, so can you tell me…. You’re going to be lied to, because that’s, that’s the rule. You don’t want to tell the enemy anything, when this guy is knocking on your door asking you about UFO crashes, could be an asset for the Soviet Union or the Russian Federation, or the Chinese PLA, or the nincompoops over in Iran and North Korea and so forth.

So, you know, even if it’s an American, you still don’t want to answer that question because you don’t know who they are. And you’re not supposed to be revealing that information. So it takes a lot of hard tracking and digging after working. And it can take years and years and years. And then you develop the security clearances and the authorization for you to know that appropriately … allow you access to that information, then you find out hey, yeah, it’s there, it’s true.

On the other hand, sometimes the information does come out on its own. But it doesn’t come out in the way that UFOlogy likes to fantasize about it. It comes out only to specific people, who have specific talents or skills, who have security clearances, they may not have the need to know. But they could have the need to know if they were presented with that requirement.

At this stage in his interview, Davis comments on the Disclosure Project witnesses that Dr Steven Greer arranged to come forward in 2001 in a ground-breaking Press Conference. According to Davis, most of Greer’s witnesses were crackpots and just “noise” when it came to identifying the genuine signal in the available public information on retrieved UFOs:

[1:21:05 YT] A good majority of them were crackpots, they were phonies. But there was a small number of them that were the real deal. And so he successfully picked up a very small number of them, and got some information. And now, as to the veracity and quality of that information. That’s another story.

But he did get some interesting information.… the information was not … verifiable. In other words, once people looked into it, they said, yeah, this is realistic. Whereas a good chunk, a good chunk of his disclosure witnesses. You know, they had middle of the road guys, they had some information, but it was too purple. It was just anecdotal.

And then you had the guys that were real liars. He’s got a chunk of liars out there … I don’t know how much effort he spent on vetting any of those people. And I’m not going to name names of who they are. It’s not important, because … the fact that they have no real information means it’s noise. We’re dealing with signal, we’re interested in signal and science folks, not the noise. Check the noise.

Next, Davis went on to elaborate on Greer’s witnesses who claimed to have first-hand knowledge of crash retrieval operations:

[1:22:25 YT] So, he did have a small signal of people that had verifiable information…. They came forward, they gave him information that was freely given to him. But it was after the fact, it was never expected that it could be acted upon. The people that gave him information … weren’t directly involved with the crash retrieval at all. They actually were either peripheral, or they heard it from somebody reliable. So the vertical information was high quality, but they were not first-hand people.

Davis is here suggesting, for example, that Clifford Stone, a 22 year US Army veteran, who was interviewed by Greer and claimed to have had first-hand knowledge of multiple crashed UFOs retrieved by the US military, was a crackpot and liar. There are many reasons to dispute Davis’ information when it comes to Stone’s testimony who has been successfully interviewed many times over several decades, and has maintained the same story with consistency and sincerity.

Davis provides no evidence that Stone or other Disclosure Projects witnesses are lying or crackpots, consequently his assertions need to be considered as unverified or misinformed. This is a major red flag that Davis testimony may be part of a “limited hangout” that is being unveiled to the American and World publics through the New York Times, arguably the most important media organ of the CIA and the Deep State.

The most significant aspect of Davis’s interview is his assertion that UFO crash retrievals were part of a small unsuccessful program that was terminated in 1989, around the time the famed whistleblower, Bob Lazar, emerged with his experiences claiming something very similar had occurred during his time at the S-4 facility at Area 51.
