Yesterday I blogged about some rather important discoveries made by UFO documents researcher John Greenewald Jr, and what thy might portend for the emerging US Space Force, and one might consider today’s blog a “revision and extension” of remarks with respect to these two articles shared by T.M. and D.M.:

Officials provide details on building the Space Force, its structure, and operating imperatives

https://spacenews.com/u-s-space-commands-major-components-will-be-based-in-california-and-colorado/

There are two facts in these two articles – one fact from each – that really has my high octane speculation motor running in overdrive because of their implications. Let’s take fact number one from article number two, first:

The Senate on June 27 confirmed Air Force Gen. John Raymond as the commander of U.S. Space Command.

U.S. Space Command is being formed with what is now the Joint Force Space Component Command, or JFSCC, that reports to U.S. Strategic Command and is led by Raymond. Once U.S. Space Command is stood up, Strategic Command will no longer be responsible for space operations.

“JFSCC goes away and we end up with two components,” Maj. Gen. Stephen Whiting, deputy commander of the JFSCC and commander of the 14th Air Force, said June 27 in a briefing with defense officials attended by a SpaceNews reporter.

Under the new structure, Whiting will lead the Combined Forces Space Component Command.  (Emphasis added)

Now why do I find that full of high octane speculative implications? Consider: the Strategic Command is the very command and control group responsible for oversight of, and operational planning for, the USA’s strategic nuclear and thermonuclear weapons, from SLBMs, ICBMs, IRBMs, cruise missiles, and strategic bombers. Spinning off space into a separate command therefore carries two potential implications, both mutually contradictory: (1) the Space Command will have no operational oversight over strategic weapons. In other words, the spin-off is designed to send a reassuring message to America’s competitors that the creation of a Space Force is not coupled to the deployment of strategic weapons in space, and is purely a defensive move. This, no doubt, will be the public explanation and narrative. But there’s a second and very disturbing possibility: (2) that the theater of strategic operations and weapons has already moved to space, and thus the Space Command has become the new “SAC,” with operational command over an array of weapons one can only guess at, from “rods of God” to Xray and Gamma ray lasers and so on. In the context of yesterday’s blog, this second possibility cannot be discounted. To put a much sharper point on this, SAC is being demoted, because the weapons platforms over which it has had command and control are fast approaching obsolescence.

This requires us to turn to fact number two in article number one:

Senior officials from the Department of Defense and U.S. Space Force provided the most specific details to date Feb. 5 for how the newly born Space Force is constructed, its structure and the philosophy guiding decisions for bringing the first new military service since 1947 into full reality.

In broad terms, the Space Force must ensure the U.S. continues its superiority in space. Getting there, however, demands that the Space Force be “lean and agile” and mission-focused, said Lt. Gen. David Thompson, U.S. Space Force vice commander.

It must be both cost effective and minimize bureaucracy while also infusing “innovation and improvements, said Thompson, who was joined by Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Space Policy Stephen Kitay, Assistant Secretary for Space Acquisition and Integration Shawn Barnes, and Maj. Gen. Clint Crosier, who leads the Space Force’s planning office. (Emphases added)

It’s that “infusion of innovation and improvements” that indicates that option number 2 above is in play, particularly when considered in the context of yesterday’s blog about Mr. Greenewald’s discoveries in the defense budget, for clearly, those items in the defense budget are about research items that ultimately were designed to “infuse innovation and improvements” into the space force. This phrase, in other words, means that those planning and implementing the organization of the space force are already thinking in terms of the research and black projects component.

If these speculations are true, then we can expect to see certain things by way of prediction and corroboration: the creation of liaison offices and officers to DARPA and NASA, and to the various aero-space defense contractors; in other words, we should expect to see a sweeping reorganization of the Department of Defense. I would suspect that one might even see the subsumption of agencies such as DARPA or NASA within an integrated command structure with a commensurate redesign of the bidding and contract placement process. And with FASAB56, this will be easier to implement than it might first appear.

See you on the flip side…

DARPA’s UFO Research?

GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
February 11, 2020

G.B. spotted this very intriguing article and analysis by John Greenewald, Jr., at Blackvault.com.  If you don’t know who Mr. Greenewald is, he is one of the newer generation of UFO researchers who prefers to focus on the nuts and bolts of hard data and documents, and not the latest stories and fantasias of Blue Chickens and similar cults. So when Mr. Greenewald finds something, I tend to sit up and take notice.

In this case, there’s a couple of paragraphs in this article that quickly caught my attention; see if you spotted them too:

https://www.theblackvault.com/documentarchive/could-this-be-darpas-project-for-ufo-uap-research/

This first paragraph that caught my eye was this:

With these assertions, The Black Vault set out to find exactly where that money may be coming from that allows the program and the effort to continue. In order to do that, we must first go after what was publicly posted for the AAWSA Program. That can be found archived from a 2008 “Federal Business Opportunities” posting which was saved in the “Wayback Machine.” This was the original posting that was seen by BAASS in 2008, which they submitted a bid for. No other corporations offered a bid.

This solicitation notice stated the objective of the AAWSA program:

“One aspect of the future threat environment involves advanced aerospace weapon system applications.  The objective of this program is to understand the physics and engineering of these applications as they apply to the foreign threat out to the far term, i.e., from now through the year 2050. Primary focus is on breakthrough technologies and applications that create discontinuities in currently evolving technology trends. The focus is not on extrapolations of current aerospace technology. The proposal shall describe a technical approach which discusses how the breakthrough technologies and applications listed below would be studied and include proposed key personnel that have experience in those areas. 3. REQUIREMENTS: a) The contractor shall complete advanced aerospace weapon system technical studies in the following areas:   1. lift; 2. propulsion ; 3. control; 4. power generation; 5. spatial/temporal translation; 6. materials; 7. configuration, structure; 8. signature reduction (optical, infrared, radiofrequency, acoustic); 9. human interface; 10. human effects; 11. armament (RF and DEW); 12. other peripheral areas in support of (1-11); b) It is expected that numerous experts with extensive experience (minimum of 10 years) in breakthrough aerospace research and development will be required to meet the demands of the above program.” (Boldface emphasis added)

Before pressing on, stop and consider that very strange list; the requirement to consider “foreign” threats “out to the far term” of thirty years, or that these extrapolations are not to be based on extrapolations of “current aerospace technology,” in other words, the contractor is being required to think outside the box of the conventional, Kammlerstab style. Then follows a rather conventional list, which, by the context, we’re being asked to do extrapolations that do not lie in “current aerospace technology” in the areas of “1. lift; 2. propulsion; 3. control; 4. power generation; … 6. materials; 7. configuration, structure’ signature reduction (optical, infrared, radiofrequency, acoustic” and so on, and squatting in the middle of this, “spatial/temporal translation.Obviously, within the context of the mundane, any system of propulsion, from horses to rockets, are capable of spatial-temporal translation, but in the context of non-conventional extrapolation, other much more exotic possibilities are implicated. For example, in the past few years I’ve blogged occasionally about this or that newest application of entanglement, and the sizes of what are being entangled seem to be gradually increasing from the quantum level to more macro-scaled entanglements. Or alternatively, I’ve also blogged ocasionally about experiments that actually remove micro-events from the timeline. Throw into this mix all the careful research being done in the alternative research field about exotic technologies – from Nazi Bells to extraordinarily odd alleged statements of Thomas Townsend Brown or Ben Rich, and there is a clear context in the public literature for “exotic” interpretations of this list.

Then there’s the term “foreign”; what does this mean? A synonym of “foreign” is, of course, the word “alien” which is commonly associated in this context with non-terrestrial intelligent life. But foreign could also mean something “unknown” to us. Viewed this way, “us” becomes “who”? Unknown to American technology and science, but still terrestrial? Or unknown to us, meaning humans? In other words, the language here is carefully chosen, and is capable of a very wide interpretation.

But there’s another gem that Mr. Greenewald discovered:

After a long hunt, the discovery of Program Element (PE) 0603286E was made, and one of the projects within, could be exactly the unique needle in that proverbial stack of needles that was being sought after.

A PE is ultimately a portfolio of programs or in some instances a single program that receives funding within a budget.  PE 0603286E was first discovered in the 2008 DARPA Fact File published in June of 2008 (coincidentally, the same year the DIA solicited the private sector for bids for the AAWSA Program).

PE 0603286E contained numerous sub-projects that receive funding out of their more than $100 – $180 million dollar yearly budget. Tactically Exploited Reconnaissance Node; Hypersonic Air-breathing Weapon Concept; Tactical Boost Glide; Aerial Reconfigurable Embedded System; are just some of the programs that receive money through this specific PE.

However, one sub-program within PE 0603286E is the Advanced Aerospace System Concepts line item, also reference as part of a “Project AIR-01.” The 2008 fact file says that:

“Studies conducted under the Advanced Aerospace System Concepts program will examine and evaluate emerging aerospace technologies and system concepts for applicability to military use, as well as the degree and scope of potential impact/improvements to military operations, mission utility, and warfighter capability. The program also analyzes emerging aerospace threats and possible methods and technologies to counter them.”  (Bold-italics emphasis added)

What’s intriguing to contemplate here is how neatly this program dovetails with the Trump Administration’s creation of a “Space Force,” which suggests that the actualities behind these paragraphs may be further along than meets the eye. And again, there’s something highly suggestive in the middle of this, something called “Aerial reconfigurable Embedded Systems.” Again, if we adopt the “exotic” context of extrapolation outside of current systems, this odd item suggests that one might be looking at a platform that is able to physically reconfigure itself while in operation. Again, these already exist and have for a few decades, with aircraft able to fold their wings for hypersonic flight. But by the same token, this phrase would adequately describe the reported behavior of some UFOs which appear to change their physical configuration in operation.

And there’s a final context in which to view Mr. Greenewald’s discoveries.  Recall that a few years ago DARPA set the objective that the USA become “warp capable” in a century, and that NASA has established a proof of concept program under the direction of Dr. Harold “Sonny” White, who reworked Alcubierre’s equations for warp.

Put it all together and one gets an intriguing picture, one that a mere twenty years ago would never have achieved this degree of public disclosure or discussion. And that should give one pause, for it may mean that the secret space program is beginning to go public, and that for a very important reason: the technologies and concepts on which they are based simply can no longer be hidden

Wuhan & Harvard…And Jeffrey

GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
February 4, 2020

I’m constantly amazed at the information that people email to me, but this one is a whopper doozie spotted by V.S. I’ve already blogged about the arrest of Dr. Charles Lieber of Harvard, and about this strange tie to the Wuhan University of Technology. But there’s more lurking in the background of that Harvard connection than meets the eye, and I just have to share this one:
_______

tldr: Epstein gave exorbitant amounts of money, at least $9 million (pledged $30 million) to researchers funded by DoD, DARPA, IARPA, and NIH at Harvard University with the expertise and technology to genetically engineer and improve bacteria and viruses. One of Harvard’s most prominent scientists who received $18 million from DoD and NIH was arrested and charged for operating a secret lab in Wuhan China just hours ago – This researcher was given over $1.5 million dollars to do so, in secret, by Chinese institutions. Meanwhile, the area where the new coronavirus emerged (Wuhan) recently opened a biosafety level 4 lab (the only one in China, a country with 1.4 billion people) where researchers were actually studying and experimenting with the genetics of coronaviruses over the past few years before the emergence of this new strain. Whether these things are linked or not remains to be see, but each of these independent statements are in fact true.

In a way this post contains two distinct conspiracy theories, that I suspect may be linked together, hence my post.

A few years ago, I attended a private government research conference where Dr. George Church, Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and Professor of Health Sciences and Technology at Harvard and MIT, was describing how his lab systematically altered the genome of a bacterial cell using synthetic biology and genetic engineering to make cells resistant to viruses. There was some brief discussion of how these techniques could be used for the opposite purpose (to engineer viruses to improve them or make them less recognizable by the host, thus delaying the immune response). Immediately following Dr. Church’s presentation, other researchers and myself had a discussion about how frightening these technological capabilities were. Over the years, this concern has always remained in the back of my mind and I’ve discussed it with others that didn’t attend the talk on various occasions. It is worth noting that a lot of George Church’s recent research also involves the study and engineering of viruses. Most recently in his career, Dr. Church has been funded by DARPA and IARPA, with the most recently funded grant titled, ‘Functional Genomic and Computational Assessment of Threats’ (by IARPA).

http://arep.med.harvard.edu/gmc/gc_grants.html

The description of this grant solicitation, if you search for it, starts with:

“The biological sciences have experienced extraordinary growth over the past decade. Technological advances in DNA synthesis, sequencing, large gene construction, and data analysis are expanding biological research and the bioeconomy, and are likely to enable revolutionary advances in medicine, agriculture, and materials. At the same time, these advances have intensified security concerns around the accidental or deliberate misuse of biotechnologies. One special concern regards DNA synthesis technologies that can be used to create novel organisms.”

Hence, Dr. Church is obviously involved in the area of applying advanced techniques (lab based and computational) to engineer organisms to make them resistant to viruses (and potentially vice-versa, to engineer viruses), and is involved in the efforts to combat the risks involved.

Interestingly enough, Dr. Church was one of the scientists most involved with Jeffrey Epstein. He received funding from Epstein for the purposes of ‘cutting edge science & education’ from 2005 to 2007 (the funding was apparently unrestricted). Epstein was convicted of soliciting an underage prostitute in 2008. Following his conviction, Dr. Church and Epstein continued to meet. According to an NBC report, “he had six phone calls and meetings with Epstein in 2014, as shown in Church’s online calendar (he has posted one every year since 1999). Sample entry: “Jun 21, 2014 Lunch w/ Jeffrey Epstein, 12-1:30, Martin Nowak’s Institute.” (Nowak, a Harvard biologist/mathematician, is also a Brockman client and Edge participant.) He also met with Epstein “several times” each year since, Church said.”

These meetings were often between Church, Epstein, and Church’s colleague Dr. Martin Nowak, Harvard Professor of Biology and Mathematics and Director of the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics. At the get-togethers with Nowak, Church said, “Epstein seemed interested in the science of life’s origins and mathematically modeling the evolution of viruses”. Epstein had also previously given a whopping $6.5 million dollars in research money to Dr. Nowak’s lab at Harvard in 2003. Apparently, Epstein had actually pledged a total of $30 million dollars (which is an incredible amount of money for a university professor to receive for research; large government funded grants usually top out at $2-3 million over several years) to Dr. Nowak’s program. I was not able to find additional information on what these talks in 2014 and beyond ultimately led to, or if more money was pledged to or received by these prominent scientific figures. Another thing to add is that Nowak also has a record of studying and writing about viruses, such as his first book publication in 2000 titled, Virus Dynamics: Mathematical Principles of Immunology and Virology.

Jumping to a slightly different topic of discussion. There are other two other posts that stood out to me in this sub.

https://www.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/comments/ev7az3/wuhan_coronovirus_bioweapon_conspiracy_indepth/

This post describes a few things. First, Wuhan, China, the 7th most populated city in a country with 1.4 billion has a biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) laboratory that was recently established in 2015. It is apparently one out of 70 or so in the entire world (number was given by OP of the post linked above; my own search only turned up 52), and it is the only BLS-4 lab in the ENTIRE country of China. For those unfamiliar with what BLS-4 refers to, they are labs involving the study of the greatest biological threats and have the highest level of biosafety precautions. It is the sort of lab where researchers would attempt to study and perhaps modify something like a coronavirus. As the other redditor pointed out (and is also outlined in other r/conspiracy posts), there are lead scientists, such as Xing-Ye Ge, that study coronaviruses based out of Wuhan. These studies are often carried out by a team of 5-20 researchers, usually across institutions.

https://www.semanticscholar.org/author/Xing-Yi-Ge/5583604?sort=influence

If you look up the Wuhan scientists research profile, you’ll be able to find that this individual and his fellow researchers also publish studies on adenoviruses in bats (similar to Dr. Church’s own virus-focused work on adeno-associated viruses, which are similar to adenoviruses and have similar applications; there is considerable overlap here). Further searching indicates that adenoviruses and adeno-associated viruses hold potential to serve as a vaccine for coronaviruses, and there are several studies on this. Dr. Church’s own work is related to this, as he studies adeno-associated viruses mostly in the context of delivering it as a sort of gene therapy for diseases. To be fair, however, these topics are outside my own area of expertise.

Now on to another recent reddit post:

https://www.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/comments/ev9adz/harvard_biologist_charles_lieber_taken_into/

In the last 24 hours, a colleague of Dr. Church and Dr. Nowak, Dr. Charles Lieber, Professor and Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University, was arrested and criminally charged over a contract he made with a foreign university. Where? In Wuhan, China. As a side note, it’s worth pointing out to those unaware that all three of these people are some of the highest-ranking academic officials at Harvard and are revolutionary scientists in their respective fields. They would not at all be considered just minor or just moderately important figures at Harvard.

According to the Justice Department: “Lieber, 60, lied about his contact with the Chinese program known as the Thousand Talents Plan, which the U.S. has previously flagged as a serious intelligence concern. He also is accused of lying about about a lucrative contract he signed with China’s Wuhan University of Technology.”

Apparently, amongst other things, Lieber established a secret research lab at the Wuhan university and was given $1.5 million dollars by the Chinese (in addition to salary and living expenses) to do so. Meanwhile “Lieber was also the principal investigator on at least six U.S. Defense Department research grants, with a cumulative value of more than $8 million, according to the affidavit. It also says he was the principal investigator on more than $10 million in grants funded by the National Institutes of Health.” So, Dept. of Defense… NIH…

For those that are unfamiliar with academia, you may be wondering “how often does a leading, well-funded academic scientist from the most prestigious university in the country set up a secret lab with a foreign government?” This probably never happens, and it is extraordinarily – and I mean extraordinarily – odd and suspicious. Researchers are sometimes solicited by foreign governments and will leak or share info, but set up another lab somewhere else under the radar? Maybe a minor scientist would, but a major one? I’ve never heard of such a thing. Some other redditor mentioned that Lieber’s research seems to be mostly focused on nanotechnology rather than bioweapons research, and this is true. However, he has been involved in previous research to use nanotechnology to detect small viral particles in humans. Most oddly though, if you try to search Charles Lieber’s Google Scholar page (basically a page where you can find all scientific articles and books authored by a researcher), his page just went dark. It shows up in the Google search results, but says ‘No information available for this page’. I kid you not, his Google Scholar page went down as I was writing this post. When you try to click on it, it strangely links you to the Google Scholar page of some completely different person.

In my mind, these are a series of very strange coincidences that seem to be interconnected. As the redditor of the first link I posted put it, what are the odds that the new coronavirus that is now making world news just so happened to come out of the same place that the Chinese just set up their first BLS-4 lab a few years ago that also just so happens to be a place where researchers are studying coronaviruses? What are the odds that, again, just in the last several hours, one of the most prominent scientists at Harvard was arrested for setting up a secret lab in Wuhan, China? Also, why was Jeffrey Epstein giving heaps and heaps of money to researchers at Harvard studying synthetic biology and genetic engineering, who had the means to systematically alter cells or viruses – people receiving money from secret defense agencies such as DARPA and IARPA – and stated himself he was interested in modeling the evolution of viruses.

We need to look into these things further. Even if the Epstein-Church-Nowak part of the conspiracy doesn’t link to the Lieber-Wuhan Coronavirus portion, these two segments stand well on their own and I feel that despite having more of a background in nanotech instead of bioweapons, Liebers arrest for secret lab in Wuhan while the coronavirus problem continues to explode is just too much of a coincidence. Why would someone getting $10 million plus from U.S. funding agencies go through the hassle of setting up a secret lab in another country and risk his entire life’s work for less money. What was he doing there exactly? I eagerly wait for more details to come out.

edit: One more thing, it keeps getting better. Another Redditor made this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/comments/evikbw/wuhan_institute_of_virology_an_ad_posted_2_months/ It’s unclear who all is involved (such as Lieber or others), but this seems to be shaping up to be one of the better conspiracies I’ve seen on this board in a while.

_______

There you have it. So it’s important to review what this article is saying: Dr. Lieber worked at the same university as Drs Church and Nowak, both known associates of Jeffrey Epstein and recipients of his largesse. Given the nature of their work, it strains credibility to assume that Lieber was unaware of their work or they of his. They are, after all, all faculty members working in more or less the same broad discipline. As they article makes clear, all were working in aspects of modifying biology and doing genetic engineering, all areas of obvious biowarfare implications. All of this raises some intriguing high octane speculations and questions:

1) Why would professors, who are recipients of government funds for research, also take private funding in the millions from Epstein? Did they need it? And was Epstein in fact laundering money for other interests in sponsoring this research? And does that mean that their are private interests trying to obtain a biowarfare capability? Their taking of Epstein money on an individual basis was quite probably entirely innocent. But it’s the overall pattern of a Harvard connection that I find highly odd.

2) Do these questions in their turn indicate that all of China is being turned into a biowarfare, economic warfare, and social engineering experiment?

In respect to these questions, the article itself asks a highly pertinent question regarding Dr. Lieber toward the end of the piece:

Why  would someone (Lieber) getting $10 million plus from the U.S. funding agencies go through the hassle of setting up a secret lab in another country and risk his entire life’s work for less money. What was he doing there exactly?

Indeed, and for whom was he really doing it? China? Harvard? Some private international interest?

Like the author of the article, I eagerly await for more details to come out. In the connection to the idea of some private international interest however, I’m reminded of a detail that occurred prior to 9/11, when Russian economist Dr. Tatiana Koryagina mentioned in Pravda, prior to the events of 9/11, that the US would shortly be attacked on its own soil by a private group with assets in the trillions of dollars. Recently, Harvard took its funding entirely black, and I have to wonder, in the light of this article, if it is one of the crucial “fronts” or “nodes” for some sort of private network. Would it be involved in such activities as a massive social engineering experiment?

Well, as I detailed with co-author Gary Lawrence in our book Rotten to the (Common) Core, another Harvard chemist – indeed, a former president of the institution – comes to mind: Dr. James Conant Bryant, and with him, the answer to that question is a resounding yes. [Bold Emphasis Added]
