On January 17, 2019, newly retired US Air Force Lieutenant General Steven Kwast wrote an article in Politico about the need for Space Force to quickly break free of USAF strategic doctrine to create a “Pax Americana” in space otherwise China will quickly step into that role and take the strategic high ground. He explains that China is building a space navy with the equivalent of destroyers and cruisers, and that America must do the same. Is Kwast unaware that the USAF has already built a secret space program or is he laying the foundations for its future disclosure to the public?

Kwast retired from the USAF in September 2019 and gave a lecture two months later at Hillsdale College where he first presented his thinking about Space Force. In his Politico article, Kwast elaborates on many of the ideas he presented in his Hillsdale lecture.

Kwast begins his article by focusing on the future economy of space:

Space is so powerful and so full of resources that it will change the way humanity consumes energy, information, goods and services. It will also transform the way we travel more profoundly than the invention of the automobile and airplane combined. The newly established Space Force is imperative if we want to avoid war and manage this journey into the future of a new trillion-dollar space economy with the power to peacefully protect our people and values.

He warns that the USAF does not appreciate the strategic importance of protecting the future “trillion-dollar space economy”, but China is:

The problem is that the Air Force is proposing a Space Force that will not protect the marketplace of space beyond earth’s orbit. But China is.

Kwast is very critical of the Air Force approach to space and asserts that it doesn’t have the right mindset for utilizing the full potential of space:

First, the Air Force is trapped in an industrial-age mindset. It is projecting power through air, space, and cyber yet does not properly consider the space geography beyond earth’s orbit… In short, the current Air Force plan for the Space Force will lose the race to dominant the strategic high ground.

Kwast goes on to warn about the danger posed by China which is building a “guardian force” to protect its interests in the future “marketplace of space”:

If America wants peace in space, it must supply some form of guardian force with the power to hold participants accountable to international law and American values. China is already building its guardian force. China is building a navy in space, with the equivalent of battleships and destroyers that can move fast and kill. America’s satellites will be helpless to win against the superior speed and firepower in China’s force.

He describes China’s ability to destroy America’s satellite communications system and the superior strategy it has developed for space:

China is winning the space race not because it builds better space equipment but because it has a superior strategy. For example, if China stays on its current path, it will deploy nuclear propulsion and solar power stations in space within 10 years. While China will claim that power stations in space can beam clean energy to anyone on Earth, the alarming fact is that the same capability can be used to turn off any portion of the American power grid, and has the ability to paralyze our military might anywhere on the planet.

Kwast concludes his article by asserting that Space Force needs to become independent of the Air Force thinking:

There is one simple action that can propel America to win. Congress must take steps to make the Space Force independent of the Air Force and give it the mission to defend the economy of space. If not it will evolve too slowly and lose this strategic high ground. There may not be time to recover.

Kwast’s proposal that the US Space Force takes on the role of establishing a Pax Americana in space where US interests in the future “trillion-dollar space economy” has much support within the Trump administration.

After the passage of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act establishing the creation of Space Force, its newly created Chief of Space Operations, General Jay Raymond, has transferred 16,000 USAF personnel into Space Force, is converting USAF bases to “space bases”, and approved a seal for the new service.

While Kwast lays out the need for a strategic doctrine of a Pax Americana in space involving the development of space cruisers and battleships, he does not appear aware that such a military force already exists. Is Kwast simply out of the loop about the antigravity vehicles of the USAF’s secret space program or is he laying the foundation for the Air Force to disclose its existence?

In the US Air Force Secret Space Program, I lay out the historical documents and insider testimonies showing how the Air Force began deploying spacecraft using exotic antigravity propulsion systems in the 1970s. Since that time, the USAF’s space arsenal has steadily grown into fleets of triangle, rectangle and saucer shaped space vehicles that dominate near-earth operations.

In short, the Pax Americana that Kwast forcefully argues needs to be established has existed for over four decades and China does not lead the way in establishing a “guardian force”, but is instead quickly catching up to what the USAF did decades earlier. In fact, China is so quickly bridging the technology gap thanks to its huge economy and industrial espionage, that its military strategists are planning for China to become the new global and space hegemon by 2030, thanks to the unrestricted embrace of Artificial Intelligence.

Coming Soon!!!

A case can be made that Kwast was simply out of the loop of the existence of a USAF secret space program since his career assignments did not involve positions where he had a “need to know” of such a highly classified program. His last assignment was Commander of Air Education and Training Command in San Antonio, Texas.

It’s also very possible that his justification of Space Force is designed to have the American public give uncritical support for the creation of a Pax Americana in space while covering up the fact that it was established decades ago, without the American public being informed. An inconvenient fact that is sure to make many angry over the decades-long delay in sharing the revolutionary advances in electromagnetic propulsion technologies, new energy systems and healing modalities that have been kept hidden from the general public.

On December 7, attendees at the Reagan National Defense Forum held at the Reagan Presidential Library were told by the Secretary of the Air Force, Barbara Barrett, and US Congressman Mike Rogers, that they are in favor of declassifying information about the Air Force’s secret space program in order to get the public to support a US Space Force. Their comments confirm that the US Air Force is on the verge of disclosing the truth behind rumors of a secret space program and that the Space Force is a vital part of a series of stunning disclosures that lie ahead.

Barrett and Rogers’ comments were published by Defense News in an article by reporter Nathan Strout with the eye-catching title, “Barrett, Rogers consider declassifying secretive space programs”. Barrett and Rogers were speaking at a panel on “Next Steps in Space: Launching America’s Sixth Military Branch”. In the panel Barrett said:

Declassifying some of what is currently held in secure vaults would be a good idea… You would have to be careful about what we declassify, but there is much more classified than what needs to be.

Rogers, a co-sponsor of the original House of Representatives Bill to create a Space Force/Corps, agreed and said that information about space programs was “overwhelmingly classified”.

Rogers elaborated further on the need to declassify the Air Force’s secret infrastructure in space in order to win public support for Space Force:

As members of the Armed Services Committee and the defense appropriators, we get it. But we have to have our other colleagues in the Congress to be supportive of us making the changes we need and the resources we need into this… It’s not going to happen until they understand the threat and the dependence we have. And I don’t think that can happen until we see significant declassification of what we’re doing in space and what China and Russia are doing, and how space is in their day-to-day lives.

Rogers’ comment that the US, China and Russia have secret space programs, and that the public needs to know more about these in order to support the creation of Space Force is stunning acknowledgment of the existence of rival military programs with space technologies far more advanced than the rocket-propelled technologies used by NASA and other national space programs.

This echoes comments by a recently retired USAF Lieutenant General Steven Kwast in a lecture where he described China developing a space navy:

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.

China’s future space navy will be able to decimate America’s satellite systems and space assets overnight.

In his Defense News article covering Barrett and Rogers’ comments, Strout said:

The two declined to say how much of the black space portfolio could move into the public, nor when changes would start happening. But Barrett pledged that it would be a focus for her office moving forward, a sign that progress could come during 2020.

Two days later, it was announced that the Congressional Conference Committee set up to resolve competing Space Force proposals from the House and Senate had reached an agreement.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2020 would contain the Space Force Act that would officially launch Space Force in early 2020. I explained the key provisions of the Space Force Act in an earlier article available here.

On Wednesday, December 11, the House of Representatives passed the bipartisan agreement reached for the NDAA/Space Force Act and the Senate is scheduled to vote on it next week. President Donald Trump has already tweeted that he will immediately sign it into law making the creation of Space Force official.

The comments made by Barrett and Rogers about the need to declassify more of the space activities secretly conducted by the USAF followed only one day after the December 6 news of an agreement being reached in Congress for the passage of the Space Force Act. This is not coincidental.

In fact, this sequence of events is stunning confirmation that Space Force is being used as a means for declassifying key elements of a USAF secret space program that possesses advanced propulsion and energy systems that will revolutionize the aerospace industry.

The linkage between the creation of the Space Force and the declassification of advanced space technologies process is precisely what I predicted in the US Air Force Secret Space Program. Put simply, the rollout of Space Force provides the means for disclosing futuristic technologies used by the Air Force in a way the boosts public confidence, setting the stage for even more remarkable disclosures.

The creation of Space Force marks the beginning of an official disclosure process that will confirm the source of many UFO sightings were, in fact, advanced space technologies developed by the USAF, or the aerospace forces of major nations such as Russia and China.  

Recently, the US Navy authorized the release of five patents of revolutionary electromagnetic propulsion and energy systems that one of its scientists acknowledged are being actively developed by China. China has a secret space program that is greatly worrying US national security analysts such as Lt. General Kwast, and this is a key factor behind Space Force’s launch.

After Space Force deploys in 2020, the stage will be set for further disclosures about revolutionary aerospace technologies. It can be expected that explanations for the origins of such technologies will be initially said to be talented scientists such as the US Navy’s Dr. Salvator Pais, the inventor of the five Navy patents, and similar breakthroughs by scientists in other national space programs. It will nevertheless be much harder to hide the truth of their real origins.

Many of the technologies used in secret space programs developed by the US, China and Russia have been reverse engineered from artifacts retrieved from the ruins of ancient civilizations and from crashed extraterrestrial vehicles, as a number of insiders have recently claimed. Among these is a former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Vice Admiral Tom Wilson, who learned that a major defense contractor was actively reverse engineering such technology back in 1997.

Eventually, the disclosure of technologically advanced extraterrestrial life will be announced, but only after the creation and deployment of Space Force has reached the point that public confidence is such that the societal collapse predicted in the 1961 Brookings Report would not occur.

The Brookings Report, titled “Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs,” described an alarming scenario of what might happen to society if humanity was not sufficiently prepared for the discovery of technologically advanced extraterrestrial civilizations:

Evidences of its [extraterrestrial] existence might also be found in artifacts left on the moon or other planets. The consequences for attitudes and values are unpredictable, but would vary profoundly in different cultures and between groups within complex societies; a crucial factor would be the nature of the communication between us and the other beings…. Anthropological files contain many examples of societies, sure of their place in the universe, which have disintegrated when they had to associate with previously unfamiliar societies espousing different ideas and different life ways; others that survived such an experience usually did so by paying the price of changes in values and attitudes and behavior.

The major takeaways from the Air Force Secretary promising future disclosures of a classified military space program and the launch of Space Force is that an official disclosure process is now firmly underway. 2020 promises to be an exciting year for all wanting to learn about secret space programs created by the US, China and Russia, and eventually learn the true origins of these technologies.
