Anonymous is hardly known for violence of any sort, let alone assassinations, but facts have never stood in the way of the Trump campaign.
“We’re certain it was Anonymous,” Texas tea partier Katrina Pierson, Trump’s national spokesperson said. “They made Mr. Trump look like a fool and ever since then he has been messing up every time he speaks in public.”
She added, “we blame Anonymous and their #OpWhiteRose for throwing Mr. Trump off his game.”
But did they have anything to do with this assassination attempt? It seems unlikely, but Pierson doesn’t doubt it one bit.
“Mr. Trump knows that white supremacy – I mean, American supremacy – cannot be achieved when we still let these Muslims into this country. And the ones who are here? We need to make them wear ID badges so we know for sure if they are Muslims or just someone who looks inferior to Mr. Trump.”
“But now,” she added, lamenting the fate of her employer, “now there is a real set back for his campaign.”
Trump is expected to make a full recovery, however, as Pierson explained “the Anonymous sniper shot Mr. Trump in the torso where one would normally expect to find a human heart. Mr. Trump was born with a congenital condition called cardiac abscessus, however, that caused him to have a puss-filled sac where you and I have hearts.”
“The puss-sac in his chest was ruptured, but he is expected to make a full recovery and be at his scheduled rally in Racine Civic Center – Memorial Hall tomorrow,” she concluded.
Our contacts from Anonymous say they had nothing to do with this incident and it is “yet another example of the Trump campaign pointing the finger at whoever they want to demonize, in order to eliminate voices of dissent.”
Who do you think is responsible for this assassination attempt? We will update this story after April 1st, with any additional details.
Meet Gary McKinnon who thinks that NASA is editing out the parts of UFO appearances in the videos it releases to the public and it has been doing so for years. He is a avid UFO watcher and has faced a 10-year fight against extradition to the US after breaking into computer databases of NASA, US military and the Pentagon.
According to McKinnon, NASA and the US government has known for years we are being regularly monitored by UFOs from far-flung galaxies. But it believes that the general public wont be able handle the truth, or it would lead to the breakdown of religion and society and it has been successfully withheld the information by covering it up.
McKinnon says that his interest in UFO’s and NASA coverup built up after former NASA contractor Donna Hare went whistleblower in November 2000 with claims that NASA staff digitally edited out UFOs from satellite pictures before they were released, from Building eight of the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.
To prove whether Hare was right or wrong, McKinnon hacked into computer databases of NASA, there US military and the Pentagon, from his girlfriend’s aunt’s home in London. McKinnon said their security was so lapse he was able to regularly gain access to entire databases for between 18 months and two years.
First, while scouring US Navy databases, McKinnon stumbled across a file containing a list of “non-terrestrial officers” with their ranks and names and a separate file of “material transfers between ships”.
Mr McKinnon believes he may have found confidential evidence of a secret space base. McKinnon has released 4 videos based on his findings.
When asked if non-terrestrial officers could mean something else such as this or astronauts, McKinnon added: “It could be up to you how you interpret them.”
The other evidence uncovered by McKinnon was while trawling the 255 computers of building eight at the Johnson Space Center. He said: “There were image databases with roll one: filtered or processed and unprocessed. They were 200-odd megabytes each. I had full remote control of the desktop.”
He said he started to download an image, but it was extremely slow, and he only got half to 2/3rds of the way down before being rumbled. McKinnon added: “It was the hemisphere of a planet I assume was Earth. It was cloudy, but there was the classic cigar-shape (UFO).” McKinnon said he took a screen grab, but then saw the cursor move separately to his mouse movements, before the connection was lost, and he was unable to retrieve the image from the clipboard.
He was arrested soon after before a highly publicised battle against extradition from 2002 to 2012, during which, in 2008, he was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome – a form of autism that may have affected his behaviour. He was accused by the US government of costing it $700,000 and hacking for more sinister reasons than trying to discover if the truth was out there.
This was amid claims he deleted critical files, shut down the US Army’s 2,000-computer Washington network for 24 hours and paralysed munitions supplies to the US Navy.
This past year has seen an enormous amount of attention paid to the toxic divide between police departments and the poor, black communities they serve. One thing we’ve learned is that tribal loyalty often prevents police officers from criticizing each other or their departments publicly—and at least sometimes, they lie when one of their own faces charges of misconduct. That’s why the recent emergence of Michael Wood Jr., a retired Baltimore cop, as a critic of law enforcement culture landed with impact: His voice was the relatively rare one that spoke with the knowledge of an insider but the unforgiving skepticism of an outsider.
In this video, you’ll meet Wood while he drives the streets of the city where he served as a police officer for 11 years, and hear him lay out his conception of what’s going wrong in the world of policing and how it could be made right.
Only have a minute? Here are the parts you shouldn’t miss:
At 2:40, Wood describes his biggest fear while working on the force.
At 6:20, he identifies the type of officers who are most likely to act irrationally in high-stress situations.
At 8:10, Wood pivots to a systemic problem throughout the force: how easily anger among officers can turn toxic.
At 10:30, Wood offers his own proposal to change the cycle.
Several eyewitnesses and family of witnesses and victims initially said that three athletic Caucasian men had been responsible for carrying out the attacks. Police immediately banned them from speaking with the media.
Just days ago, another eye-witness in the office came forward and said that in spite of what the law enforcement and mainstream media narrative is saying, the people who carried out the attack where very athletic, large, Caucasian men, who were three – not two – in number. Farook’s wife, it should be remembered weighed approximately 90lbs.
Now, a third prominent eye-witness, Chirs Nwadike, has stepped up to challenge the mainstream narrative. He recently told reporters he received a phone call from an unknown person around 7 p.m., on the evening of the shooting, who told him that he must say that Sayd Farook was the shooter.
You read that right, he says that he was called and told to change his story and say that Farook carried out the attacks with his wife, even though that is very different than what he witnessed.
Nwadike told reporters:
“No it’s not him [Sayd]. I told them about it. He’s quiet. He doesn’t make any trouble.”
“He was just spraying bullets everywhere,” Nwadike said. But the gunman was not Sayd, or his wife.
Listen to what he has to say and help SPREAD THE WORD!
San Bernardino, CA — An active shooter situation is currently underway in the 1300 block of South Waterman Avenue in San Bernardino, California.
The shooting apparently took place at the Inland Regional Center, which is a facility that provides services for people who have developmental disabilities. The facility had just celebrated its Christmas party.
According to KTLA, police have warned people not to talk to the media. At one point during the KTLA live stream, the reporter attempted to interview a witness and multiple officers rushed up and pushed the reporters and the witnesses apart. Below is a screen grab from the live stream showing confrontation.
After the shooting began, San Bernardino Police Department Lt. Richard Lawhead said that their SWAT team happened to be conducting training nearby. The team was suited, “ready to roll” and responded rapidly, Lawhead said.
What makes this noteworthy is that this is not the first time that emergency drills for the exact scenario unfolding were taking place at virtually the same moment the actual terrorist attacks began.
During the 9/11 attacks on the U.S., North American Aerospace Defense Command’s (NORAD) was in the midst of a training exercise called Vigilant Guardian, which “coincidentally” simulated planes being hijacked by terrorists.
The Free Thought Project has heard from a source on the ground, that the target inside the Inland Regional Center was a gathering of government officials. This was confirmed by KTLA and Marybeth Feild, president and CEO of the Inland Regional Center, told the Associated Press that “the incident is in the conference area” at the center rented by an outside group, which she couldn’t identify.
As of 4:15 EST on Wednesday, the reason behind these tragic shootings and the identity the shooters remains unknown. We will keep updating this article as we find new information.
Update: (4:22 EST) The Loma Linda Level 1 trauma center in the area has only taken in 4 victims and expect 3 more, 2.5 hours after the shooting.
In the Western world, the Dalai Lama is best known for promoting consciousness, self-evolution, and inner peace. Though he is an outspoken activist for freedom in his native country, Tibet, he rarely speaks on global political affairs. In the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks, however, the Buddhist leader shared an astute and vital perspective on the state of the world—one reached through spiritual beliefs rooted in peace and humanity.[/caption]
Asked about Friday’s terrorist attacks during an interview with German broadcaster Deutsche Welle, the Dalai Lama downplayed the power of pleading with deities. “We cannot solve this problem only through prayers,” he said, possibly referencing worldwide calls to #PrayForParis. “I am a Buddhist and I believe in praying. But humans have created this problem, and now we are asking God to solve it. It is illogical. God would say, solve it yourself because you created it in the first place.”
Noting that people want to live peaceful lives, he dismissed Friday’s terrorist attacks as “short-sighted,” suggesting this mentality contributes to many suicide bombings. Though the Dalai Lama did not further analyze the causes of last week’s attacks, he acknowledged the problem of chronic aggression around the world.
“The twentieth century was a violent one, and more than 200 million people died due to wars and other conflicts. We now see a spillover of the previous century’s bloodshed in this century,” he said. One estimate suggests his figures are low and that governments killed over 250 million of theirown people alone last century.
When the interviewer suggested his sentiments of peace, love, and compassion have fallen on deaf ears around the world, the Dalai Lama declined to entertain a pessimistic view. “I disagree. I think that only a small percentage of people subscribe to the violent discourse,” he said. “We are human beings and there is no basis or justification for killing others. If you consider others as brothers and sisters and respect their rights, then there is no room for violence.”
Rather than dwell on the small minority of violent instigators, the Dalai Lama focused on solutions. “If we emphasize more on nonviolence and harmony, we can herald a new beginning,” he said. He also cautioned against failing to work toward this ideal: “Unless we make serious attempts to achieve peace, we will continue to see a replay of the mayhem humanity experienced in the 20th century.”
The Tibetan native was forced to flee his homeland amid a 1959 uprising against the Chinese government, which invaded the region in 1950. He still lives in exile in India but has long been an advocate for peaceful resolution of the conflict—even as Chinese authorities have attempted to replace him with a “communist-approved alternative.” Discussing the Tibet-China conflict, he maintained his view that “we are living in the 21st century and all conflicts must be resolved through dialogue, not by force.”
Living by his own words, he expressed that if Tibetans decide they no longer want his leadership, he will step aside. “In 2011, I officially announced that it was up to the Tibetans if they wanted to keep the institution of the Dalai Lama,” he said. “If the people think that this institution is no longer relevant, it should be abolished. I am no more involved in political matters. I am only concerned about Tibet’s well-being.”
In spite of his distance from politics, he continued to emphasize the importance of peace to the survival of humanity:
“We need a systematic approach to foster humanistic values, of oneness and harmony. If we start doing it now, there is hope that this century will be different from the previous one. It is in everybody’s interest. So let us work for peace within our families and society, and not expect help from God, Buddha or the governments.”
He also echoed an inclusive sentiment the world undoubtedly needs to hear, saying “the problems that we are facing today are the result of superficial differences over religious faiths and nationalities. We are one people.”
When an individual pedals the bike, the action drives a flywheel, which turns a generator and charges a battery. This means from just one hour of pedaling, a rural household can be supplied with energy for 24 hours.
The billionaire and his team developed the bicycle to take advantage of mechanical energy created by humans to solve one of the world’s most pervasive problems.
“Everything requires energy. Energy is the great equaliser,” says Bhargava, adding that over half of the world’s population have no access to electricity or access to electricity for two or three hours per day.
Having access to clean, free energy will enable poverty-stricken communities to not only light their homes but to connect to the internet and get educated. Bhargava says the reason the majority of those who are poor stay poor is because they have no power. He aims to fix this with the free energy bicycle.
One bicycle could potentially provide a small village with electricity if each household spends on hour per day pedaling the bike.
In developed nations, the bike could also be utilized to cut energy costs and remedy the obesity crisis.
The bicycle is also a clean way to generate power. As Bhargava says himself, if half of the world uses a Free Electric bike, half of the world would be using eco-friendly energy.
Manoj’s plan is to distribute 10,000 of the bicycles in India next year. In addition, he has pledged 90% of his wealth to charity and research.

Tuesday afternoon Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott spoke at a press conference to explain what he described as his “disgust” with his deputy’s actions Monday. But Sheriff Lott seemed to do a lot of justifying for Deputy Ben Fields, including arguing that his police brutality could not possibly be motivated by racism, because – after all – he has had sex with an African American woman.
Deputy Fields became notorious after a video leaked of him flipping over a teenage student – while still in her desk – right on her head, and then ripping her from that desk, and throwing her across the room.
When one student spoke out against the police brutality, Officer Fields arrested them.
In spite of it all, Sheriff Lott decided to defend Deputy Fields, claiming that his actions were not racially motivated.
“We’re going to be fair and we’re going to do the right thing,” he said at a press conference.
“If she had not disrupted that school, disrupted that class, we would not be standing here today,” Lott said, blaming the victim. “So it started with her and it ended with my officer. What I’m going to deal with is what my deputy did.”
Was race a factor in the abuse? Lott said, “I don’t know… this deputy has been dating an African American female for some time.”
San Diego, CA — Embattled fast food giant McDonald’s is making headlines yet again. The company has just launched its much advertised all-day breakfast program, but as that campaign rolls out, franchise owners are voicing their concerns over what may be the company’s dying days.
As we covered at Anti-Media in June, the McDonald’s franchise has been shrinking for the first time in the company’s over 40 year history:
“McDonald’s announced in April that it would be closing 700 ‘underperforming’ locations, but because of the company’s sheer size — it has 14,300 locations in the United States alone — this was not necessarily a reduction in the size of the company, especially because it continues to open locations around the world. It still has more than double the locations of Burger King, its closest competitor.”
However, for the franchisees, the picture looks much worse than simply 700 stores closing down.
“We are in the throes of a deep depression, and nothing is changing,” a franchise owner wrote in response to a financial survey by Nomura Group.“Probably 30% of operators are insolvent.” One owner went as far as to speculate that McDonald’s is literally “facing its final days.”
Franchisees have also been complaining about the erratic nature of McDonald’s corporate decision-making process. As Business Insider reports, “The lack of consistent leadership from Oak Brook is frightening, we continue to jump from one failed initiative to another.” They are likely referring to the company’s many marketing schemes that have been implemented recently to slow the bleeding of younger customers as they choose healthier, more local options en masse. As Anti-Media also reported in June,
“Though the chain has dominated the fast food market for decades, recent competition and health consciousness has challenged the popularity of its product. The growth of chains like Chipotle, which recently stopped using genetically modified ingredients, has reportedly diverted customers away from McDonald’s. Additionally, the company is losing a share of its young patrons while the rise of boutique burger chains such as Five Guys has put a dent in profits.
[…]The increased closures denote a growing shift in dietary preferences among Americans. This is consistent with recent moves by fast food chains to remove toxic chemicals from their ingredients, as well as with the exponential growth of organic, healthy alternatives.”
Are we seeing McDonald’s final days? If the trend towards healthier alternatives to McDonald’s continues, it’s a very real possibility.
“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many, and various, and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks.” – John C. Calhoun, the 7th Vice President of the United States (source)
There are a number of important issues that need constant attention and reiteration when it comes to creating awareness, and one of them is government secrecy, which is happening on multiple levels, so I apologize if you’ve already come across this information from us. It really makes no sense to say that we live in a democracy when, as former Canadian defence minister puts it, “The veil of secrecy has to be lifted, and it has to be lifted now … trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects which both the Congress and the Commander in Chief know nothing about.” (source)
We’ve been warned by many about the world of secrecy. This is precisely why President Eisenhower warned us about the “acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex,” and that we must “never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes.” (source)
When we are talking about government, we are talking about corporations that dictate government policy. We do not live in a democracy, we live in a “corporatocracy,” where corporations are above the government, and the banks are above them.
Here is a great video clip from the documentary Thrive that I’ve shared before; I apologize if you’ve seen it before, but it’s fitting.
“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation … The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties … [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.” – (source)(source) John F. Hylan, Mayor of New York City from 1918-1925
The Black Budget World
The black budget world is the pinnacle of government secrecy, at least in North America. It involves programs that are extremely classified and deal with everything from technology to information and more. In fact, Edward Snowden’s leaks were the very first to prove the existence of clandestine black budget operations in the mainstream world, despite the fact that they’ve been investigated before.
“There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.” – Senator Daniel K. Inouye, the highest ranking Asian-American politician in United States history (source)
The topic was discussed in 2010 by Washington Post journalists Dana Priest and William Arkin. Their investigation lasted approximately two years and concluded that America’s classified world has become so large, so unwieldy, and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it, or how many agencies do the same work. (source)
A 1997 US senate report described them as so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress. (source)
Is this where all of the missing money from the federal reserve system has gone? For example, in July of 2001, in front of the house appropriations committee, Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld stated that the financial systems of the department of defence are so snarled up that they can’t account for approximately 2.6 trillion dollars in transactions. (source)
According to RT news, for the past couple of decades many trillions of dollars have been pumped into these black budget programs. (source)
You can read an article that goes more into detail about the black budget HERE.
A lot more is going on here that goes well beyond surveillance, and the black budget is basically the umbrella of surveillance and other programs that are not known to the public.
Who Really Created ISIS & The Truth About ‘Terrorism’
“Another threat that Obama mentioned was ISIS. Well, who on Earth armed them? Who helped to arm the Syrians that were fighting against Assad? Who created the necessary political/informational climate that facilitated this situation? Who pushed for the delivery of arms to the area? Do you really not understand as to who is fighting in Syria?” – Russian President Vladimir Putin (source)(source)
Vladimir Putin recently expressed his concern when it comes to so-called ‘terrorists,’ and he’s not the only one. David Stele, a 20-year Marine Corps Intelligence Officer, said that most terrorists are false flag terrorists, created in the United States. He has said that every single terrorist attack in the United States has been a false flag attack. You can read more about that HERE.
“They say Muslims are terrorists, but it just so happens that terrorists are Made in America. They’re not the product of Muslim society, and that should be abundantly clear to everyone on this floor.” – Dr. Michel Chossudovsky, the University of Ottawa’s Emeritus Professor of Economics, spoken at the International Conference on the New World Order (source)(source)
“The US is reviving terror scare with ISIS to promote the terror war industry.” – FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds (source)
We even have documents that tie Al Qaeda to the CIA.
“Malcolm X once said ‘If you’re not careful newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed & loving the people who are doing the oppressing.’ Never has this quote been more relevant than in the way the media paints most conflicts in the Middle East. It’s always ‘sectarian’ or ‘religious’ so we can think Arabs are uncivilized people – that THEY can’t get a long. When in reality, most of the conflicts we see today, from Libya, Egypt, Palestine, Iraq, to Syria, are a direct results from Western & imperialist intervention & meddling.” – Mnar Muhawest, Editor-in-Chief of Mintpress News (source)
Here are some related CE articles on the subject where you can find more information about this phenomenon and find more evidence for false flag terrorism.
Space news has been at an all time high lately, especially with the recent discovery of water on Mars.
Also in the news recently, the Russian government has called for an international investigation into the United States moon landings. They are concerned about the disappearance of film footage from the original moon landing, as well as the missing 400 kilograms of lunar rock that was taken from multiple missions. You can read more about that here.
Perhaps one of the strangest things is the recent disclosure of UFO files by multiple countries around the world. These files indicate that governments have spent a great deal of resources investigating this very serious/real phenomenon.
For example, here is an article that sources various documents detailing what happens when a UFO is tracked on radar.
Here is a document (1 of thousands of pages) from the FBI illustrating what type of documents were typed up, and the ‘important’ people they were sent to. It provides details of extraterrestrial bodies and craft on pages 21 & 22. You can read more about that document here.
Here is an NSA document pertaining to UFOs, and here is another.
“I’m skeptical about many things, including the notion that government always knows best, and that the people can’t be trusted with the truth. The time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue. We have statements from the most credible sources – those in a position to know – about a fascinating phenomenon, the nature of which is yet to be determined.” – John Podesta, Councillor to Barack Obama, former Chief of Staff at the White House under the Clinton administration, and current head of Hilary Clinton’s presidential campaign (taken from Leslie Kean’s 2010 New York Timesbestseller, UFOs: Generals, Pilots, And Government Officials Go On The Record, in which Podesta wrote the forward)
Here is a video of him at the National Press Club speaking about the issue.
Here is the latest batch of files released by the UK government.
Keep in mind that these files, in my opinion and according to my research, are not even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to government secrecy about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Who knows what information remains hidden from the public, or why it is so?
All of these now-public documents and statements, like the one below, have people turning their heads.
To view some more statements like the one below, you can browse through THIS heavily sourced article.
“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations. That it behooves us, in case some of these people in the future or now should turn hostile, to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want. This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” (source) – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee
The Manipulation of Science
Government secrecy is a shady area to explore, because how much does the government really know? If corporations dictate governmental policy and influence major decisions, is it really government secrecy that we’re talking about, or corporate secrecy?
When we think of science, we think of logic, deductive reasoning, and truth. But what science is turning into is information that has been manipulated and distorted for the sake of corporate interests. Scientists today are muzzled, paid off, threatened, and in many cases, completely misled, resulting in an abundance of fraudulent research.
“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.” – (source)(source)Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard Professor of Medicine and Former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious imporance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” – (source)Dr. Richard Horton, current Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of TheNew England Journal of Medicine.” – (source) Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and long time Editor-in-Chief ofThe New England Medical Journal
“There is increasing concern that most current published research findings are false.”
It’s not only in the medical field, think about all of the suppressed science in the black budget world. We are talking about all subjects, from engineering to physics.
Scientists working for the Canadian government are starting to raise their voices, accusing the federal government of “muzzling” them and their findings on various issues, particularly when it comes to climate change. Apparently, the union representing this group of researchers will be taking “the unusual step of demanding Ottawa enshrine scientific independence in their collective agreement.” (source)
New documents obtained via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reveal how the Patent Office has been using a secret system to withhold the approval of some applications.
This 50-page document was obtained by Kilpatrick Towsend & Stockton, LLP, who commonly represent major tech companies that include Apple, Google, and Twitter (to name a few). You can view that entire document HERE.
The program delaying patent applications is called the Sensitive Application Warning System (SWAS). Usually, when an application is submitted for a patent approval it requires a couple of examiners who work with the patent office to put it through their process of approval. This process usually takes approximately 1 to 2 years, but applications that are filed in SAWS must be approved by several people, and can be delayed for a number of years.
One great example of delayed patent applications comes from Dr. Gerald F. Ross. He filed a patent application for a new invention he had devised to defeat the jamming of electromagnetic transmissions at specified frequencies. It was not until June 17, 2014 (almost 37 years later) that this patent was granted. (source)
It’s also important to note (as reported by the Federation of American Scientists) that there were over 5,000 inventions that were under secrecy orders at the end of Fiscal Year 2014, which marked the highest number of secrecy orders in effect since 1994.(source)
This is all thanks to an act many people are unaware of. It’s called the “Invention Secrecy Act” and it was written up in 1951. Under this act, patent applications on new inventions can be subject to secrecy orders. These orders can restrict their publication if government agencies believe that their disclosure would be harmful to national security. (source)(source)
The 1971 list indicates that patents for solar photovoltaic generators were subject to review and possible restriction if the photovoltaics were more than 20% efficient. Energy conversion systems were likewise subject to review and possible restriction if they offered conversion efficiencies “in excess of 70-80%. (source)
He goes on to illustrate why this is so concerning:
One may fairly ask if disclosure of such technologies could really have been “detrimental to the national security,” or whether the opposite would be closer to the truth. One may further ask what comparable advances in technology may be subject to restriction and non-disclosure today. But no answers are forthcoming, and the invention secrecy system persists with no discernible external review.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) is the largest trade agreement since the creation of the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the United States has been engaged in discussion with eight Pacific nations to come to an agreement on the terms of the TPP. It is a free trade contract that would allow for a more open system of exchange between the United States and less developed nations, apparently, and it has been wrapped in secrecy since discussions began within the Bush administration in 2005.
This is one (of multiple) example(s) of global economic/political partnerships and deals that is happening behind the back of the public eye.
Below is a video of Robert Reich, an American political economist and professor who served in the administrations of Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, talking about the deal. He was also Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997.
The TPP is not really “secret,” but it sure does seem that way, which is why I chose to raise awareness about it here.
