Secret Space Programs: The Greatest Cover-up of All Time?
Are there secret space programs using extra-terrestrial technologies? Are we subjected to a massive psychological operation?
Here we examine alleged large-scale cover-ups, two very different interpretations of unusual aerial phenomena – UFOs – linked to “secret space programs”. The alleged facts relating to these cover-ups are difficult to fathom, but if true, they constitute a conspiracy of gigantic proportions.
The first involves the Earth elite and its military apparatus, intelligentsia, security and space operations. The second concerns the claims and revelations of various individuals and “whistleblowers” about cooperation “beyond top secret” with extraterrestrials.
When the Pentagon’s X-37B spaceplane was first announced to the world – a deliberately engineered event – the public was mesmerized by its appearance.
‘Mysterious Pentagon X-37B spaceplane sets new orbit record’ by Nick Whigham reads an article on News.com.au in March 2017. robotic aircraft belonging to the US Air Force floated in space in low orbit. »
The US Air Force X-37B 4 Orbital Test Vehicle is seen at the Shuttle Landing Center at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Florida in May 2017. There was no hiding the fact that the X -37B is part of a secret space program.
“Despite this unique feat, the spaceplane remains shrouded in secrecy and the objectives and purpose of the mission are a mystery to the public – fueling intense speculation and conspiracy theories, including fears that it to inaugurate the militarization of space. »
The weaponization of space has been a major issue for governments since the 1950s. controlling space will likewise possess the ability to exercise control over the surface of the Earth. »
In recent decades, the space race has intensified with special programs and projects developed by Russia, India, Japan, South Korea and China (the largest in Asia) . Private entrepreneurs also participate. Most of the work is top secret.
Of course, the main player in this domination game is the United States government. It funds multi-billion dollar development of experimental black planes in “Area 51” (nicknamed “Dreamland” by pilots who test the planes in the restricted airspace above the base).
The U-2 spy plane and F-117 stealth fighter were developed in Area 51 under the aegis of a host of secret government agencies, including the Central Intelligence Agency and Strategic Air Command, and private contractors .
According to various whistleblowers and researchers, Area 51 is infamous for being the location of storage and examination of crashed spacecraft (including material recovered from Roswell). It is here, they say, that military scientists have studied extraterrestrials and their technology. Some even claim that Area 51 is the place of encounters or joint ventures with extraterrestrials. More on this later.
America’s secret network of spaceplanes and satellites
The US Air Force’s X-37B spaceplane is just one of dozens of secret military satellites and craft orbiting in space. Many are designed to spy on Earth. It is almost certain that others are tested for war purposes.
According to astrophysicist and astronomer Jonathan McDowell, “secret space programs, or I should say military space programs more generally, are as big as NASA”, adding that there are around 20-25 “full-fledged spy satellites or other truly secret vehicles” traveling above the Earth.
American artist, geographer, and author Trevor Paglen has managed to document some of the reality behind the Pentagon’s classified “black” budget programs. In his book published in 2010, he looked at “badges” or emblems in the field of clandestine military activities.
Speaking to The New York Times in 2008, Paglen remarked, “This stuff is a huge industry, I mean a huge industry. And it’s remarkable that you can develop these projects on an industrial scale, and we don’t know what they are. It’s a staggering feat of social engineering.”
It is here, in these space programs, that we detect signs of a massive cover-up that, by definition, extends far beyond the confines of the Area 51 fence.
Alongside government-funded space research programs are private contractors, many of whom are tied to the military-industrial complex. Competition between different players, driven by profit, is the source of secrecy and deception.
Many would be surprised to learn that Amazon.com billionaire Jeff Bezos is going to space, with his company Blue Origin operating in complete secrecy. Late last year , Blue Origin sent its New Shepard suborbital rocket into space, its first test flight. It competes with Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic spaceflight company in what they both predict will be tourism’s new frontier – space.
Other private space companies based in the United States are the famous SpaceX, owned by Elon Musk, as well as Boeing, Sierra Nevada Corporation and Orbital ATK. These companies develop rocket engines and systems, capsules and spacecraft. Big profits are at stake. Where the secret is broken is that you can’t hide anything that flies in the sky or floats in space.
Look ! In the sky ! It’s a bird ! It’s a plane! It’s a UFO!
It’s no secret that governments around the world have programs in place to study unidentified aerial phenomena. Beginning in 1952, Project Blue Book was part of a series of studies of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) conducted by the United States Air Force. These programs have officially ended, but many observers believe that, for obvious reasons, the study of strange objects in the sky continued in secret, outsourced to unofficial non-governmental organizations, front groups for the Pentagon.
Howard Blum, in his book Out There: The Government’s Secret Quest for Extra-terrestrials, reveals from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests that the military the US Air Force continued to catalog and track UFO sightings, in particular a series of UFO encounters between the late 1960s and mid-1970s, which occurred at US military installations with ‘nuclear weapons.
Blum writes that some of these official documents deviate radically from the usual dry, bureaucratic wording of government paperwork, making evident the sense of “terror” these UFO incidents evoked in many USAF personnel.
One of the major stories in the field of ufology happened in 2017 – the official admission that there was, in fact, a recent US government program studying UFOs.
The Pentagon project, called the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, was reportedly created in 2007 to study unexplained aerial phenomena that appeared to use new propulsion, hovering or other advanced technologies.
The unveiling of the Pentagon project was greeted uncritically and publicized by some UFO enthusiasts, which may have been the intention of the people behind the release of the report.
We heard from the former head of the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, Luis Elizondo. “My personal belief is that there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone,” Elizondo told CNN.
The program reportedly ran from 2008 to 2012. Mr Elizondo, pointing to a particular episode filmed on video that has been made public, said UFO aerobatics – such as hovering without any sign of propulsion – were out of reach of human technology.
He didn’t seem to doubt that the show had found evidence pointing to the presence of extraterrestrials: “These aircraft – we’ll call them airplanes – exhibit characteristics that are not presently in the US inventory or in any foreign inventory that we have knowledge “.
Does Elizondo’s confession indicate an indirect disclosure by the government of the existence of extraterrestrials? Or is he part of a sophisticated disinformation program designed to divert our attention from the experiments of the secret space program?
Apparently this has happened before. According to British journalist and filmmaker Mark Pilkington in Mirage Men: An Adventure into Paranoia, Espionage, Psychological Warfare, and UFOs, an organization of the shadow he dubbed “mirage men” was behind a global double bluff.
His book lays out the controversial thesis that the fascination and study of UFOs was instigated or encouraged by the US government, which sought to cover up Cold War military plans.
According to Pilkington, the Roswell case, where the US military recovered a ‘flying disc’ from a ranch near the New Mexico town in 1947, is one of the ‘most famous examples’ of male mirage work. . He told online newspaper Sputnik: “In the early 1950s, the US military was testing a lot of new technology and it was convenient to disguise it as a UFO. It was a double bluff. »
He states that “the UFO mythology served as a convenient cover” for classified tests. In that same vein, Elizondo’s new confession serves to restore the mystery around UFOs as extraterrestrial spacecraft – not as maneuvers of advanced human-developed technology.
In short, this sums up the first part of our examination of the cover-up surrounding secret space programs. Worldwide military agencies and private contractors prefer us to see UFOs rather than their experimental craft.
This is, in itself, a massive cover-up involving thousands of operatives and “whistleblowers” spreading carefully planned disinformation, which eventually came to life in the mythology of UFOs and alien abductions. , etc.
The existence of this huge misinformation conspiracy is, of course, hotly contested by members of the UFO community who have their own view of the phenomenon – and they certainly strongly disagree.
The term “flying saucer” became widespread from the year 1947. On June 24, civilian pilot Kenneth Arnold reported seeing nine objects flying in formation near Mount Rainier in the US state of Washington. Arnold timed the sighting and estimated the speed of the discs at over 1,900 km/h. He described flying saucer-shaped objects. He described the objects flying in a saucer-like fashion, which led to newspapers referring to them as “flying saucers” and “flying discs.”
Coincidentally, the unidentified flying object that crashed on a ranch northwest of Roswell, New Mexico happened during the first week of July 1947.
It was the magical moment that sparked the UFO craze.
We know there was considerable interest in strange aerial phenomena and “aliens” before this critical year, but that interest exploded in the decades that followed. UFO sightings and reports of encounters with beings from outer space have increased exponentially, and not just in the United States.
UFO organizations proliferate and document thousands of cases. Could all this be just the imagination of the credulous? Is this all part of a massive disinformation campaign? If so, then this would be the most successful manipulation of the global public’s imagination ever.
The answer is perhaps closer to a simple fact about the human mind. Once a possibility is opened up in the “group mind” or collective consciousness, it tends to manifest throughout the population. Kenneth Arnold’s flying saucers sparked belief in the possibility that something other than the world is haunting our skies. Once we started considering this possibility, we started seeing the saucers and other strange things. Maybe they came and went from the beginning, maybe in different forms, but we didn’t “see” them.
Now that we “see” them, we must determine what they are, and above all, what they want. This brings us to the second aspect of the biggest cover-up of all time – how secret space programs are linked to extraterrestrials.
Since that fateful year of 1947, and the subsequent wave of UFO sightings and apparent alien abductions, the collective mind has become inextricably focused on the idea of extraterrestrials and their possible interaction with humanity. .
Over the years, dozens of insiders have come out of the woodwork with tales of free energy, reverse-engineered UFOs, secret colonies of human-alien hybrids, antigravity, and government collaboration with various alien species. extraterrestrials.
In short, these incredible stories about the secret space program represent the second interpretation of the “greatest cover-up of all time”. As in the first part, it is a conspiracy requiring the complicity of thousands of individuals and various programs designed to divert our attention from a very different “truth”.
Dr. Steven M. Greer
Among the many figures in the UFO scene, Steven Greer has become one of the loudest and most consistent voices calling for full disclosure of extraterrestrial contacts. Decades of petitioning prominent Washington lawmakers and power brokers, speaking to the National Press Club of the United States, and producing UFO documentaries, such as the recent “Unacknowledged,” have propelled Greer under the limelight as one of the main players in exposing the alleged cover-up of extra-terrestrial contacts.
Greer shares a platform on this topic with others, including William Tompkins (1923-2017), Bob Dean, Richard Doty, Karl Wolfe, Edgar Mitchell (1930-2016, famous for Apollo 14), and Corey Goode. The stories told by these men – some of whom are former insiders – don’t always add up, but they all seem to fervently believe what they say.
Greer claims to have met dozens of supposed secret space program insiders and acquired thousands of documents to back up his thesis. Greer claims the cover-up began in the 1950s, when the US government reverse-engineered salvaged and crashed alien craft.
The first breakthrough, according to Greer, was the mastery of “anti-gravity.” From then on, in the 1950s, labor went “black and the reason it went black in those days was because the financial cartels didn’t want people to understand that we didn’t have need oil or gas or jet engines or those things for decades. »
The military-industrial complex has selfishly kept these technological breakthroughs hidden because they threaten the entire house of cards “built on fossil fuels and the petrodollar system.” »
Greer repeatedly urged high-ranking members of the US government to reveal what they knew about extraterrestrials, until he concluded that the relevant information was withheld even from the President of the United States.
Regarding actual extraterrestrials, Greer claims that the US government “possesses several dozen extraterrestrial vehicles and dozens of deceased [ET] life forms of various races. Some are stored in an underground facility near Fort Huachuca in Arizona. »
From there, we enter the realm of the “Twilight Zone” or “Star Trek” in the literal sense of the word, due to the weird and wacky scenarios described by some whistleblowers and disclosure activists. Here’s a quick rundown of these incredible claims which, if true, would indeed be “the greatest cover-up of all time.”
Alien species and alliances
Again, in this particular arena there are many players, some known and respected for their consistency and thoroughness, while others seem to have constructed their claims from the web of established theories and narratives.
All agree that world governments, including those of the United States, Russia, China, Japan and the European Union, have entered into separate alliances with various extraterrestrial species in space programs. secrets. The United States, Russia and China have allegedly entered into independent technology transfer treaties with rival extraterrestrial species that have embroiled Earth in a kind of “Star Wars” type conflict, which we are told is between extraterrestrial civilizations for thousands, if not millions of years.
Michael Salla is an Australian scholar-turned-UFO researcher who runs the popular Exopolitics.org website. He is the author of a recent book titled The US Navy’s Secret Space Program and Nordic Extra-terrestrial Alliance.
Salla describes the existence of an extra-terrestrial military-industrial complex (MIEC) and claims that secret space programs around the world are currently in contact with 17 extra-terrestrial civilizations. The growing geopolitical conflict between the EU-allied United States and the Eurasian alliance led by Russia and China is, in reality, due to the fact that these governments are embroiled in the ongoing war between extra-terrestrial civilizations. .
Salla claims that Gene Roddenberry’s creation of the science fiction television series “Star Trek” was actually based on leaked classified information regarding the US Navy’s clandestine space fleet. This fleet, which would have been a space program carried out in alliance with technologically advanced extraterrestrial races like the “Greys”, the “Reptilians” and the “Tall Whites”, is the basis of “Star Trek”.
Some extraterrestrial species have apparently sought to ally with humans because they needed certain mineral and natural resources that Earth has in abundance. For example, the Tall White aliens would maintain a secret trade delegation at Nellis Air Force Base near Las Vegas. They desperately need aluminum and titanium to power their advanced aerospace industries.
Most sinister of all, some extraterrestrial species have made a pact with the governments of Earth to collect human DNA resources. This explains the alien abductions. There is also talk of an alien plot to take over the planet and rule it through a new alien-human hybrid elite.
Space does not allow me to mention in detail revelations such as how Nazi Germany established secret bases in Antarctica with the help of various extraterrestrials (the first UFOs were made by Nazi scientists and technology was transferred to the United States after WWII) and the splinter civilizations on the far side of the Moon and Mars, run by techno-elites, essentially the people who actually run the planet.
Other stories and tales have been revealed (or made up), but they are all based on the premise of secret space programs.
Deciphering the facts of the misinformation to discern whether either side of the “greatest cover-up of all time” is true – even partially – seems an insurmountable challenge. Perhaps the truth lies somewhere in the middle, between attempts to divert the general public from clandestine aerospace experiments and the phenomenon itself, which will not go away because too many of us experience it. of its great strangeness.
For this article, the final word goes to the writer and researcher Micah Hanks who has studied the UFO phenomenon for many years:
“There are countless examples of military exercises and various experimental technologies being confused with extraterrestrial vehicles and other more esoteric things. However, in recognizing this basic truth, one must ask whether all UFO reports can be simply attributed to misidentification of known phenomena (including military operations, etc.), or whether there are indeed sources aliens behind some UFO craft reports…
“Ultimately, what is left for us to try to discern is whether a majority of incidents involving unusual aerial objects can be explained by covert military activity (and often in the absence of reliable data, because of the secrecy that surrounds these subjects). »
Thus, it is sometimes difficult for us to assess the types of technologies that have been developed and tested over the years, versus the types of things that seem to come from another world and are therefore perceived as “theirs”. (i.e. aliens).
“I would say though that, if I had to guess, there’s probably a lot going on behind the scenes right here on Earth, which may explain a lot of the weird things we’ve seen popping up in incidents involving UFOs over the years. The question is, if not under the principle of “disclosure”, how can we ever find out what is really going on?
