SPACE FORCE: U.S. Defense Officials Want $304 Million Towards Space-Based Weaponry
By Aaron Kesel
Defense officials have asked for $304 million to fund research into Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs) including but not limited to — space-based lasers, particle beams, and other space-based weaponry in the 2020 budget, Defense One reported.
The officials want to test a neutral particle beam in orbit by fiscal year 2023 as a means of next-generation missile defense against adversary countries like China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran according to the report. However, the article only addresses $15 million of that budget, leaving a gap for what the other $289 million dollars is used for. As NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed, under high levels of national security there was a black budget of 52.6 billion dollars. One may wonder how much more that cost has risen and how much is allocated to “space-based weaponry” off the books on the black budget?
According to Defense One:
So the Pentagon is undertaking two studies. The first is a $15 million exploration of whether satellites outfitted with lasers might be able to disable enemy missiles coming off the launch pad. Defense officials have said previously that these lasers would need to be in the megawatt class. They expect to finish the study within six months.
They’re also pouring money into a study of space-based neutral particle beams, a different form of directed energy that disrupts missiles with streams of subatomic particles traveling close to light speed — as opposed to lasers, whose photons travel at light speed.
The Pentagon first tested the concept of a neutral particle beam in the late 1980s as part of a program self-titled the Neutral Particle Beam, or NPB. According to a 1990 report that military scientists sent to lawmakers, scientists in black projects explored the possibility of a space-based weapon that could “kill missiles and reentry vehicles in the boost, post-boost, and mid-course portion of an ICBM trajectory as well as discriminated objects during the midcourse phase.”
In July 1989, the program put a neutral particle beam into orbit as part of a project called the Beam Experiment Aboard a Rocket, which is seen as “a major success for the NPBprogram.”
On the other side of the hemisphere, the Soviets had worked for years on ground-based directed energy weapons — mainly lasers, high-powered microwave masers, and exotic particle beam weapons. Evidence exists that the USSR tested these weapons (both anti-satellite and ABM (Anti-ballistic missile capable). Here is a declassified Defense Department photograph from 1980s of a suspected particle beam weapon installation allegedly located in Semipalatinsk, Kazakhstan.
In 2017 shortly before Trump’s inauguration a U.S. Air Force commander proclaimed that space weapons can now be used against ISIS. This type of technology has been developed, in secret, for years.
“If we want to be more agile then the reality is we are going to have to push decision authority down to some lower levels in certain areas the big question that we’ve got to wrestle with … is the authorities to operate in cyber and space,” General David Goldfein, the Air Force chief of staff, told USA TODAY.
Although General Goldfein did not go into detail, citing that the material is classified, there is enough data out on the Internet to speculate what weapons could be used against the Islamic State.
This preceded an announcement by U.S. President Donald Trump about creating a Space Force after Congress had discussed the creation of a new branch of the military.
In 2017 I wrote a lengthy exposé by a since-deceased military whistleblower in regards to a secret space program existing and having run several experiments that were always canceled over the years but received immense funding. Within that article, entitled: “The Origins And 50 Years Of Evidence Of A Secret Space Program,” I provided evidence that these military space plans weren’t canceled but were simply discredited while remaining operational and went into BLACK PROJECT SAPS or Special Access Programs.
Meanwhile, Congress voted under the Defense Authorization 2018 bill on forming a “new” sixth branch of the military called “Space Corps” which would take over Air Force Space Command Operations and likely Naval Space Operations or Naval Space Command.
In 2015, The New York Times reported that space could be the next war zone, warning about the implications of weaponizing space in an opinion piece literally entitled: “Preventing A Space War.”
It’s worth noting that space-based weaponry is nothing new. Believe it or not, history of space-based weapons goes back to 1959 when the Air Force first expressed interest in space weapons and considered a plan, Project A119, according to a declassified report by the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center from June 1959. The report shows they wanted to investigate the capability of weapons in space.
Let’s first look at a project known as Horizon, which was supposedly just a drawn-up plan in the 1960s that is our first canceled project in a long list of projects that were canceled, that seemingly depicts the blueprints for a Secret Space Program including a base on the moon.
It’s worth noting that in 2017, a year prior before the announcing of Space Force, the U.S. and Russia agreed to build a moon base together, Activist Post reported.
NASA and the Russian space agency Roscosmos announced a partnership for human exploration of the moon and deep space. Both agencies signed a joint statement on the collaborative effort. It all stems from NASA’s “deep-space gateway” concept, a mission architecture designed to send astronauts into lunar orbit by 2020 (the statement sets a mid-2020s goal for beginning the project.)
“This plan challenges our current capabilities in human spaceflight and will benefit from engagement by multiple countries and U.S. industry,” NASA officials said in a statement.
Unlike Project Horizon, the recently proposed plan is an orbital station that will orbit the moon, as opposed to a stationary base on the moon’s surface.
Instead, the current plan resembles another previous proposal called the MOL (Manned Orbiting Laboratory) which was suggested during the Cold War.
The MOL ran from December 1963, until its alleged cancellation in June 1969. Its mission was to use an elite corps of secret U.S. astronauts to gather intelligence on the Soviets during the Cold War. This historical fact proves that secret astronauts were proposed and may exist today in black ops known as Special Access Programs or SAPS.
China and Europe also recently proposed to “build” a joint lunar command for their own future space endeavors in the past few years. This project, however, is the opposite and more closely resembles Project Horizon, a stationary joint command structure. on the moon.
A quote from President Ronald Reagan on June, 11th 1985 seems to allude to that fact. Reagan wrote in his diary that he had been told about a “space shuttle that carries 300 men” when having lunch with five of the top scientists at the time.
The quote by Ronald Regan in his diary makes only a little more sense when compared with a 1989, New York Times article which reported that the Air Force had shut down another planned manned space program, with a staff of 32 astronauts and a space shuttle launching facility in Colorado. The space facility and project costed an estimated minimum of $5 billion dollars, so why would they shut it down?
Reagan said, “space truly is the last frontier and some of the developments there in astronomy etc. are like science fiction, except they are real. I learned that our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people.”
Modern space shuttles only carry eight passengers maximum, so 32 or 300 would be an accomplishment indeed.
Then there is the Air Force’s X-20 Dyna-Soar space plane, which was also designed in the 1960s and was allegedly scrapped for metal. The Air Force quietly announced its cancellation in 1963. Today the U.S. Air Force has another plane that has been documented to have been in space four times the X-37B. However, the X-37B is an unmanned craft and its mission purpose is classified and unknown. It’s also alleged that the X-37B operation is run from the Air Force’s Rapid Capabilities Office and not the U.S. Air Force Space Command.
Ronald Reagan is also the same president who signed the original SDI (Strategic Defense Initiative), aka “Star Wars” — a project to set up satellites with lasers that could destroy any ballistic missiles which threatened the U.S. He gave his famous speech about how if Earth was invaded by a hostile force, we would all have to forget our differences and come together in peace.
There is also a space weapons agreement that a congressman proposed called the “Space Preservation Treaty” in 2005, which states that countries won’t seek to weaponize space. However, Obama recently violated this agreement under the 2017 NDAA Act, and no one noticed that the legislation he signed is essentially the Star Wars Defense Initiative II that his predecessor, Ronald Reagan, signed calling for a space-based missile system.
That proposed system is now under Trump’s control, and Defense officials now want more money to develop U.S. space-based weapons. Trump’s Pentagon arms-research chief, Michael Griffin, first expressed interest in Directed Energy Weapons last year, Activist Post reported.
WikiLeaks documents from Hacking Team, the mysterious Italian surveillance malware vendor, also show references to nonlethal Directed Energy Weapons already being sold globally.
Then there is this interesting document on the bio-effects of nonlethal weapons.
In fact, we know that Directed Energy Weapons have existed since at least April 28, 1997, when U.S. Defense Secretary William Cohen made the following statement according to the DoD:
Others terrorists are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves… So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our counter-terrorism efforts.
However, currently Russia and China want a Treaty on the Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space, Russian Ambassador to the U.N. Dr. Vitaly Churkin expressed.
In fact, other WikiLeaks documents — this time from John Podesta emails — show an email from the former astronaut and sixth to walk on the moon, Edgar Mitchell, who talks about this treaty with Podesta.
Is there any evidence that there is advanced weaponry in space?
Mitchell warned the “war in the space race is heating up.” Mitchell also sends Podesta a revised new space weapons treaty to ban the use of weapons in outer space.
ROD OF GOD
What is the Rod Of God? The Rod of God is a part of the Directed Energy Weapon family; it’s a kinetic energy weapon.
The rods are directed munitions; the higher you are (the greater your distance from the planet), the greater the kinetic energy you have.
In 2004, published in Popular Science, Eric Adams writes:
A pair of satellites orbiting several hundred miles above the Earth would serve as a weapons system. One functions as the targeting and communications platform while the other carries numerous tungsten rods–up to 20 feet in length and a foot in diameter–that it can drop on targets with less than 15 minutes’ notice. When instructed from the ground, the targeting satellite commands its partner to drop one of its darts. The guided rods enter the atmosphere, protected by a thermal coating, traveling at 36,000 feet per second–comparable to the speed of a meteor. The result: complete devastation of the target, even if it’s buried deep underground. The two-platform configuration permits the weapon to be “reloaded” by just launching a new set of rods, rather than replacing the entire system.
Like many of these projects, the Rod Of God weapon was proposed in the 1950s by the Rand Corporation prior to Reagan’s SDI (Star Wars Project.) Rand played with the idea of placing rods on the tips of ICBMs. The “U.S. Air Force Transformation Flight Plan,” published by the Air Force in November 2003, references “hypervelocity rod bundles” in its outline of future space-based weapons, and in 2002, another report from RAND, “Space Weapons, Earth Wars,” talks about the effectiveness of such a weapon.
The concept of developing kinetic-energy weapons has been around ever since the RAND Corporation proposed placing rods on tips of ICBMs in the 1950s. Although the Pentagon won’t say how far along the research is, or even confirm that any efforts exist, citing those details are classified. The “U.S. Air Force Transformation Flight Plan,” published by the Air Force in November 2003, references “hypervelocity rod bundles” in its outline of future space-based weapons; and in 2002, another report from RAND, “Space Weapons, Earth Wars,” talks about the effectiveness of such a weapon.
It’s highly possible that the Rods Of God were used after a North Korean launchpad collapsed in 2017, since former Secretary of Defense James Mattis suggested the U.S. could use “kinetic weapons” against North Korea prior to the strange earthquake, as Activist Post reported.
An earthquake then happened; and although small, a 3.5 earthquake took place near its nuclear facilities in April right after Mattis’s comments and a bigger one then followed in July 2017 which was a 5.8 as reported by Australian News.com.au.
There was also a further earthquake in September 2017, which Voice Of America blamed on North Korea running nuclear tests, resulting in the deaths of dozens of people.
VOA reported that North Korea had successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb.
One month later in October, there was another nuclear test site destroyed when a mine shaft being dug at the regime’s nuclear test site collapsed and killed 200+ people which was blamed on the previous testing, Telegraph reported.
Last year a study by a group of geologists discovered that the Mount Mantap mountains used by North Korea for its nuclear bomb testing had collapsed as a result of the explosions last April. The collapsed mountain further raised concerns about radioactive fallout, which could make its way into China, according to scientists from the University of Science and Technology of China. The researchers believe this could be the true reason North Korean President Kim Jong-un announced the halt of their nuclear testing program.
I personally feel all these coincidental earthquakes after the kinetic weapon threat is un-ignorable empirical evidence since there were several nuclear test sites destroyed and hit with tremors.
Another time the Rod Of God weapon may have been used was in 2015 when Natural News reported that the several explosions in Tianjin, China were due to the Rod of God, largely due to the Chinese cyber attacks and presumably U.S. currency devaluation that took place in 2015 from dumping massive bonds.
In 2011, a few years prior, The New York Times reported that the Defense Department was working up new strategies to counter cyber attacks, including, as the paper reported, “a military response,” because they would soon consider cyber attacks as an act of war. In 2015, The New York Times followed up with a report on “The Rods From God.”
Another type of blacklisted space weaponry is an aircraft known as Aurora or TR-3B.
When you first start researching space weapons, one man comes up a lot in your searches — and that man is Edgar Fouche.
Fouche, a former contractor with the Department of Defense, began leaking information in the 1990s pertaining to the existence of a U.S. Air Force triangular shaped craft known as the TR-3B or the Aurora Project. He alleged the aerial vehicle was an advanced version of the SR-71 and had been developed in secret by the NSA and the U.S. Air Force and had been flying since at least the 1980s.
The Aurora comprises the SR-75 capable of speeds above Mach 5, and acts as a mother ship for the SR-74 that can travel at speeds of Mach 18 or more into space to deliver satellites.
Is Edgar Fouche credible? Yes, there are dozens of documents of his awards; he is indeed who he claims to be: a technician who worked within DARC (Defense Advanced Research Center) who was stationed at Nellis Air Force base and Groom Air Force base. A few of those documents are below. It’s worth noting that on February this year a UFO researcher filmed unknown craft flying out of Nellis Air Force base on a daily basis.
“I was stationed at Nellis from 76-79. In the summer of 79 I worked at Groom AB and DARC (Defense Advanced Research Center). This is right before assignment to Kadena AFB, Okinawa Japan,” Fouche said.
Whistleblower Master Sergeant Edgar Fouche (deceased) worked as an avionics engineer for the U.S. Air Force for over 20 years, and in 1998, published details of an aerial vehicle known as the TR3-B that he claims was developed in secret by the NSA and U.S.A.F.
The performance characteristics of this vehicle are mind-boggling, using field propulsion to reduce the weight of the craft, plasma, and traveling faster than 30x the Earth’s gravity at Mach 9 (6,900 mph) vertically or horizontally.
Is this possible? Let’s first answer if the speed is achievable. Recently, warp drive technology like this became public and the Chinese tested the leaked EM-drive patent and manufactured the device, so the technology is indeed operational and NASA has confirmed too that it works. An astrophysicist claimed that we would have it within 100 years, while another scientist in Britain, Roger Shawyer, claimed he figured out the secret and we could reach the moon in four hours. Russia has made a similar claim, but with a nuclear-fission engine, claiming that the engine can provide a fast way to get to Mars in 6 weeks.
Next, let’s talk about the possibility to generate a magnetic field for the use of propulsion. Is this plausible? A scientific paper titled, “Generating a magnetic field by a rotating plasma” proves that this is indeed possible.
Former Lockheed Martin Skunkworks Senior Scientist Boyd Bushman came out in 2012, on his deathbed, about Antigravity Propulsion Devices and how they tie into what is known as “Singularity,” which could allow you to move anywhere within the universe instantaneously. He further explained how magnetics worked by doing a magnet experiment with a copper pipe and aluminum pipe.
Is there any video evidence of such an anti-gravity craft being used? In Canada, released through a FOIA request, there is a video of the Avrocar, which was the U.S. Army’s top secret flying saucer, tested between 1952-1961. Although the Avrocar only reached hovering heights of three feet and speeds of 30 knots. This shows that levitation technology was actively being developed in the 1950s-60s, so it’s believed to be a prototype of the hovering craft, but it’s not the only known prototype. Another project, the supersonic flying saucer, was declassified and was worked on in the 1950s.
This wasn’t the only saucer project that the U.S. Air Force would be involved on working on. Declassified plans for another project around the same time in the 1950s shows another saucer that looks exactly like your typical UFO craft except this one was deemed “supersonic.”
It was the same company, Avro Canada, in tandem with the U.S. Air Force who was tasked with developing this project.
The supersonic flying saucer would propel itself by rotating an outer disk at very high speed, taking advantage of the Coandă effect. Keep this in mind as we are going to talk about another craft, the TR-3B, which I believe uses the Coandă effect later on in the article.
Fouche says to the deniers in the video below that, “if you think these rumors are far-fetched look at the YB49 flown in 1948 and the XB70 flown in 1964, then look at the SR-74 and SR-75 Aurora which has been spotted numerous times you say that the government can’t keep a secret? Boy, you are wrong.”
Fouche says that the “SR-74 and SR-75 or Aurora” were both “replacements for the SR-71 blackbird spy plane.”
The SR-71 blackbird was developed in 1964, Fouche alleges that its replacement was created in the 1990s almost two decades later. Before the SR-71 in 1962, there was another plane as mentioned above, the X-20 Dyna-Soar, which literally says space plane on the Air Force’s website. Do you really think that was the Air Force’s last attempt at a space vehicle?
Today the Air Force Space Command, separate from the Air Force, admittedly has the X-37B an unmanned spacecraft that has had numerous unknown missions into space.
In late 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump resurrected the U.S. National Space Council (NSC) by signing an executive order on June 30th, 2017 in order to steer the future of American space policy. The council was last active in the early 1990s during President George H.W. Bush’s administration. Pence chairs the reinstated council, with aerospace veteran Scott Pace serving as executive secretary to the committee.
— Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) September 26, 2017
“At President Trump’s direction, the kick-off meeting of the National Space Council will bring together all aspects and sectors of the national space enterprise for the first time in a quarter-century,” Pence said in a statement. “This meeting will provide an opportunity for the Administration to lay out its vision for space exploration. As President Trump said, ‘We’re a nation of pioneers, and the next great American frontier is space.’”
Focusing on the recent revival of the NSC or National Space Council, which has been dormant since it was disbanded in 1993 during the Clinton administration, the NSC helps Trump’s admin follow through with their goals in space.
I will end this article the same way I ended my previous leak on 50 Years Of Evidence Of A Secret Space Program.
Could the government keep such a massive secret hiding a Secret Space Program?
The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, but its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years. Then there was the Manhattan Project or the atomic weapons test which was kept secret through compartmentalization despite at least 1500 leaks. In other words, the project was broken into many isolated sub-projects exactly as is detailed above with the SSP. Most of the people managing sub-projects knew nothing about the other sub-projects. They would report to a superior, who would provide the information they needed and nothing more. Vice President Harry Truman didn’t even know the Manhattan Project existed.
So absolutely the government can keep a secret this vast and has before, but only for so long until whistleblowers emerge and journalists like me get curious and start digging and peeling back the secrecy to bring transparency to an issue that majority of the public doesn’t even know exists.
The main thing to take away from all this information is, as SeattlePi wrote in a 2015 article, “Weapons in space put the world at risk.” Especially if they are running unsanctioned programs unbeknownst to Congress and even the President of the United States by Military Industrial Complex Aerospace corporations. It’s time to peel back truth’s protective layers; if they have worked on various black projects for fifty-plus years, what makes you think they stopped?
The second thing to take away is that there is a tremendous amount of history where the U.S. has been working on these weapons, and many likely already exist at least in compartmentalized circles.
Regardless, it’s now quite known that Space Force is a thing, but what if we have already weaponized space?
Space-based weapons are quite literally a threat to National Security and American sovereignty – space is the final frontier as Neil Armstrong said. Although, I don’t think Armstrong meant to end life as we know it and expand war into space by bringing about our own demise through our actions towards other humans or an alien race.
