Is it the result of ensuring unending peace and justice?
Or is it something much more sinister?
After World War 1 and 2 and Vietnam, and Iraq, do we still need to ask?
As civilians, maybe we don't have a say, but I'm sure many veterans may be compelled to agree with me in this scenario. After what has been done to them and what they have seen, maybe they don't need to be persuaded at all. The one thing we can't lose sight of, is respect, as Veterans Day is just passing, for those who fought, who follow orders unconditionally, believing they are protecting their country (Often a philosophy passed down from the Golden Generation, irrelevant in a world of water-boarding and Predator drones) My only objection, and it is a humble one, is...
Are they really defending freedom or systematically clearing the way for elitist private industries that don't give a damn about any people or their families, or the families, whose criminal activity already makes them seem like people who feel entitled to orchestrate the world stage in ways that make any citizen, soldier, or civilian concerned about where all this centralization of power is headed.
Sure in World War 2, the Nazis were an obvious enemy, the troops knew who they were fighting against(important in strategy) but WHY they were fighting those individuals (important in launching massive multi teired was deployments Now our troops have no clue as to whether the people in the "Middle-East" are fighting for their lives or are actually CIA backed terrorist. In that situation one wouldn't think it reasonable or non-psychopathic, to occupy countries with mass ground troops
invasions some decade after creating and aggravating civilian based para-military groups, trained by us (I know it is redundant) to fight us.
For Reasons of National Security...
Hitler fabricated a cause for people of Germany, to invade Poland after he burned down a farmhouse and blamed it on the “terrorists”, claimed they were a threat to national security; immediately denouncing those who questioned him as unpatriotic and soon had citizens' peers turning them over to the SS. False Flag Terrorism is something we are all hopefully quite aware of by now, but, as is often my question...How did we get here? A quick look at the history of corporations, just within the U.S. may help us to understand how we wound up in the burning Animal Farm, or this preparatory Orwellian state.
Eisenhower, Kennedy, and the Military Industrial Complex
Secrets of War with Charlton Heston: Eisenhower’s Operatives
No one can argue with the initiatory and ideal militant school of thought, which imposes it’s agenda with universal understandings such as “The military has a right to their secrets.” or “the average American working class citizen would burst under the pressure of making tough military decisions related to foreign policy”. The military does have a right to keep secrets and will, so long as it wishes superiority and views it’s enemies, not as the ramifications of an industry which causes war to make money for itself and itself only, producing mass eradication of life and resources... but rather, as an entirely necessary money spending machine justified by the “high price of freedom” and the endless paranoid measures of a national security obsessed state bent on weeding out it’s unpatriotic citizens ranging from people who care about the environment to people interested in unidentified flying objects.
Freedom isn’t free! for people getting Predator drone bombed as we speak, it apparently takes much mutual genocide. The machine that has, in many ways, replaced the military, demands constant mass destruction to fuel an industry, and sees only rhetoric about rebuilding and making the money off of that process as justification for mass murder. I’m sure that doesn’t sound goose step like at all, echoing across countries most Americans couldn’t point to on a map..
True patriotism and the military have not been wed successfully since Eisenhower’s presidency. Because true secrets have not been shared with an American President since Kennedy in my opinion. According to the facts as they stand in American history, Eisenhower passed down his, quite righteous (he may still have known more than we know today about “black” operations) fear and disdain of the future of military industrial complex or MIC. These concerns may have ranged from the nazification of American Intelligence (through the justification of being one step ahead against the Russians in the heat of the Cold War which lasted in so many campaigns -1945-1991) to the birth of a secret government complete with secret space programs.
I think Kennedy proved to the more shadowy elements of the military industrial complex that Presidents would only serve to hinder their agendas with their moral, quite real, patriotic sense. It must be noted that Kennedy threatened to shatter the CIA into a million pieces. Though the intelligence community surely instrumented Kennedy’s death, as well as Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and others in a wave of 60s American bloodshed; (Fred Hampton’s murder now resembles the average “law enforcement break in” which uses SWAT teams taught by highly trained special forces teams to use extreme quick force, as if dealing with highly trained terrorist, but actually assaulting unarmed American suburban families)
We now have an African American President who, upon being elected to a second term oversaw General David Patraeus, head of the CIA, step down from his position. Also Kennedy’s dedication to space, to the extent that he wanted to join the Russian and American(German) space programs into one united program is very telling of his relation to Obama’s philosophies regarding space exploration (Space X) According to Carol Rosin Von Braun shared these concerns as well.
Eisenhower, often recognized as the more meditated humble war time President during WW2; also had much skill and an obsession with secrets not many know about. It was Eisenhower who was really responsible for the origins of the CIA, and Eisenhower who handed the future of stealth black projects (namely spy planes such as the U-2, SR-71,etc...) to the agency. Later with the obvious phrasing and execution of Zapata and the furthering of the interest of the United Fruit Company, led characters like Bush and Carl Rove to actually be seemingly the most risky and unethical procedures for the CIA.
Eisenhower’s Farewell Address
First off, what’s up with the 12? Could this be related to 12 Disciples? 12 occult followers of Himmler with possible extraterrestrial or transdimensional contact, or 12 Knights of Camelot? These guys are mostly quite notable bloodlines, some of which command whole centuries of history, much like the philosophies of the men in the center of the above mentions clans of 12. According to the information that comes forward in interviews with whistleblower Dan Burisch in Project Camelot the Majestic 12, (which he claims to have been a member of) are each masters of technology or science in their respective fields brought together to evaluate and often “back-engineer” exotic technologies for the use of other agencies within the secret government. These secret programs are the continuation of well documented Psy research out of the Pentagon, Department of Defense, and Stanford Research Institute in the 70s. Not only was the 12 supposed to be responsible for “what to do” about the UFO phenomenon, they were so heavily populated by heads of the CIA, it is a question as to whether this was somehow a mechanism of the “space brothers” Psyops. (See Contactees by Nick Redfern)
The named members of MJ-12 were:
1. Rear Adm. Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter: first CIA director
2. Dr. Vannevar Bush: (March 11, 1890 – June 28, 1974) chaired wartime Office of Scientific Research and Development and predecessor National Defense Research Committee; set up and chaired postwar Joint Research and Development Board (JRDB) and then the Research and Development Board (RDB); chaired NACA; President of Carnegie Institute, Washington D.C.
For his master's thesis, Bush invented and patented a "profile tracer", a mapping device for assisting surveyors. It was the first of a string of inventions. He joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at MIT in 1919, and founded the company now known as Raytheon in 1922.
3. James Forrestal: Secretary of the Navy; first Secretary of Defense (replaced after his death on MJ-12 by Gen. Walter Bedell Smith, 2nd CIA director)
4. Gen. Nathan Twining: headed Air Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson AFB; Air Force Chief of Staff (1953–1957); Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff (1957–1961)
5. Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg: Directed Central Intelligence Group (1946–1947); Air Force Chief of Staff (1948–1953)
6. Gen. Robert M. Montague: Guided missile expert; 1947 commander of Fort Bliss; headed nuclear Armed Forces Special Weapons Center, Sandia Base
7. Dr. Jerome Hunsaker: Aeronautical engineer, MIT; chaired NACA after Bush
8. Rear Adm. Sidney Souers: first director of Central Intelligence Group, first executive secretary of National Security Council (NSC)
9. Gordon Gray: Secretary of the Army; intelligence and national security expert; CIA psychological strategy board (1951–1953); Chairman of NSC 5412 Committee (1954–1958); National Security Advisor (1958–1961)
10. Dr. Donald Menzel: Astronomer, Harvard; cryptologist during war; security consultant to CIA and NSA
11. Dr. Detlev Bronk: Medical physicist; aviation physiologist; chair, National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council; president Johns Hopkins & Rockefeller University
12. Dr. Lloyd Berkner: Physicist; radio expert; executive secretary of Bush's JRDB
According to the scribes of the Exopolitics movement these were the two Presidents that supposedly signed agreements with tall white gray aliens starting in 1955. These agreements related to the exchange of technology for permission to abduct people for genetic research and racial continuation of their race. The Exopolitics movement is suspect in some ways of being disinformation, from an overly eager staff, to an overnight mass production of unheard of data, to a New Agey Psyop feel to the material no one can tell who to trust when it comes to these characters. Michael Salla, one of the more sober of their crew, relates a whole history of the Majestic-12, Kennedy, and alien agreements.
Carol Rosin, a former secretary to Wernher Von Braun details his warnings of false flag terrorism preceding a faked alien threat. Echoing the tired rantings of any youtube scholar and their phd in non-project BlueBeam.
Wernher Von Braun
It seems, right from the beginning of life in Wersitz, Wernher had a strong passion for rockets. Influenced directly by the science fiction- which functioned then, as scientific speculation, a young von Braun started experimenting right away with flying and exploding rocket experiments. He had the mind filled with imaginative sci-fi ideas and the family money to experiment.
" The young von Braun became fascinated by science fiction-that literary underdog of pulp magazines and lurid fantasies which has, in fact, transformed the world just as much more ( than ) " sophisticated " literature ever has. Jules Verne's 1865 novel From the Earth to the moon was a particular inspiration. Like so many space visionaries, von Braun fell in love with rockets as a young boy and chased that one passion relentlessly for the rest of his life. Rockets today are " just" machines for sending satellites and modules into space, but half a century ago they seemed to promise something more to the people who dreamed of building them. Humanity would fly into the cosmos and settle on other planets, where new and perhaps better societies could be created. The rocket mirage was vague, but it was in keeping with the "romance of flight" or the "romance of the open road " that made the airplane and the automobile such objects of desire in the 1920s and 1930s, when the darker potentials of such machines had not yet been revealed to their fullest and most bitter extent."
Wernher von Braun: Rocket Man for War and Peace
He met up with like-minded visionaries in The Society for Space Travel ( Verein fur Raumschiffart ) Willy Ley and Hermann Oberth. Throughout the thirties von Braun would swiftly have his optimistic vision for the future of man, turn over night- into weapons capable of mass obliteration, by demanding Nazis like Heinrich Himmler. Much controversy surrounds von Braun's position on Nazism.One thing that the Nazi's make clear, join us or no research at all...20,000 people died in the tunnels built to house experimentation on the V-2 rocket. These projects were jointly headed by von Braun
Though it is obvious that von Braun knew of the atrocities happening in the same places he worked, he may have actually saved many people by assigning them elsewhere. Either way, it seems von Braun had his eyes on one thing...the development of his dreams in space exploration,
"We knew that we had created a new means of warfare, and the question as to what nation, to what victorious nation we were willing to entrust this brainchild of ours was a moral decision more than anything else. We wanted to see the world spared another conflict such as Germany had just been through, and we felt that only by surrendering such a weapon to people who are guided by the Bible could such an assurance to the world be best secured. All of man's scientific and engineering efforts will be in vain unless they are performed and utilized within a framework of ethical standards commensurate with the magnitude of the scope of the technological revolution. The more technology advances, the more fateful will be its impact on humanity.You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering". - von Braun
Though the above documentaries try to convince you otherwise, it seems there is no proof of von Braun's nazism, in the usual sense...If von Braun could've done it over himself, he may have not hurt anyone...There is no distinction between SS orders and von Braun's real intentions
" I trust you realize that your rocket has ceased to be an engineer's toy? The German people are eagerly waiting for it. " -Himmler
Capture of von Braun
. " I didn't know von Braun from a hole in the ground. " -44th division veteran below
" As Hitler's Third Reich was crumbling in January 1945, von Braun made plans to move his team of about 125 leading rocket scientists and engineers of the world, south to surrender to the Americans. Rather than succumb to capture by the long-sworn enemies the Russians, von Braun organized a mass exodus from Peenemunde to surrender to the American troops in Austria. Unknown to von Braun, Hitler had ordered their execution to prevent their capture by the Allies. After a dangerous intrigue filled journey and secure in Austria, they waited for the American arrival. At that time, brother Magnus von Braun journey on a bicycle to meet them. The first soldier that he met was a sentry with the 324th Infantry Regiment, 44th Infantry Division, Private First Class Frederick Schneikert. Magnus was ordered to drop the bicycle and surrender, hands-up. In poor English, Magnus tried to explain his mission. The young soldier was not really sure what think of his claims. He turned the matter over to his commanding officer, First Lieutenant Charles L. Stewart. Stewart at first thought that Magnus was trying to"sell" his brother and the other scientists to the Americans. The contemporary report from the "Mission Accomplished, The Battle History of the 44th" is written with this prospective. The communications were soon cleared up and Lieutenant Stewart gave Magnus passes for the Germans, to ensure their safe passage to the American encampment. On May 2, 1945, von Braun and his rocket team surrendered to the US 44th Infantry Division. Had the Soviets captured von Braun instead, the post WW2 history might have been far different. " from the 44th Division site here
Von Braun had always embraced science fiction but his vision like Disney's extended way past our current science. He and many at NASA from the late 50's, envisioned space stations and the like...
"The space station (to be constructed using rockets with recoverable and reusable ascent stages) would be a toroid structure, with a diameter of 250 feet (76 m). The space station would spin around a central docking nave to provide artificial gravity, and would be assembled in a 1,075 mile (1,730 km) two-hour, high-inclination Earth orbit allowing observation of essentially every point on earth on at least a daily basis. The ultimate purpose of the space station would be to provide an assembly platform for manned lunar expeditions. The notion of a rotating wheel-shaped station was introduced in 1929 by Herman Potočnik in his his book The Problem of Space Travel - The Rocket Motor. More than a decade later, the movie version of 2001: A Space Odyssey would draw heavily on the design concept in its visualization of an orbital space station. Von Braun envisaged these expeditions as very large-scale undertakings, with a total of 50 astronauts travelling in three huge spacecraft (two for crew, one primarily for cargo), each 49 m (160.76 ft) long and 33 m (108.27 ft) in diameter and driven by a rectangular array of 30 rocket propulsion engines.Upon arrival, astronauts would establish a permanent lunar base in the Sinus Roris region by using the emptied cargo holds of their craft as shelters, and would explore their surroundings for eight weeks. This would include a 400 km expedition in pressurized rovers to the crater Harpalus and the Mare Imbrium foothills." At this time von Braun also worked out preliminary concepts for a manned Mars mission that used the space station as a staging point. His initial plans, published in The Mars Project (1952), had envisaged a fleet of ten spacecraft (each with a mass of 3,720 metric tons), three of them unmanned and each carrying one 200-ton winged lander. in addition to cargo, and nine crew vehicles transporting a total of 70 astronauts. Gigantic as this mission plan was, its engineering and astronautical parameters were thoroughly calculated. A later project was much more modest, using only one purely orbital cargo ship and one crewed craft. In each case, the expedition would use minimum-energy Hohmann transfer orbits for its trips to Mars and back to Earth. Before technically formalizing his thoughts on human spaceflight to Mars, von Braun had written a science fiction novel, set in 1980, on the subject. According to his biographer, Erik Bergaust, the manuscript was rejected by no less than 18 publishers. Von Braun later published small portions of this opus in magazines, to illustrate selected aspects of his Mars project popularizations. The complete manuscript, titled Project MARS: A Technical Tale, did not appear as a printed book until December 2006. -wiki
Oddly enough it seems there were people on the surface who wished to downplay Wernher's Space Odyssey, if you will, and make the technology appear to move a lot slower. The notorious compartmentalizing of information by intelligence groups around that time make it impossible to understand how far the initial potential of von Braun's vision reaches...or destroys...
" Another possible crossing point for aerospace information may have been the Interplanetary Society ( BIS ), according to bennett and Percy. While the BIS was reportedly created in September 1945 by combining several existing organizations interested in the future of space exploration, it was not officially inaugurated until December of that year. At that time, Wernher von Braun, the man behind the V-2 rockets, was named as an honorary fellow. Arthur C. Clarke, an early member of the BIS, claimed the society had been in existence long before the was and was merely in "suspended animation" from 1939 to 1945. Nothing that the Soviet embassy in London subscribed to no less than twenty copies of the bimonthly BIS journal, Bennett and Percy asked, "Why was it necessary to reform a society already in existence? Why did the British hasten to grant such an award to the man who only nine months before...was responsible for the annihilation of so many people in London and the Home Countries? Why did von Braun...wish to play down the real timing, if everybody felt comfortable with the reasons for honoring ( him ) ? " Their insinuation is that valuable tocket technology information was passed along via the BIS, possibly with the approval of von Braun. "
Here again we see the encryption of key data in these magazines as proof of the " in plain sight " method of communicating certain data.
" Von Braun was also given the chance to display his undeniable charm on the public stage. He became a campaigner for space, tirelessly working the local Chambers of Commerce, the Rotary clubs and any other venues that would host him. By sheer force of personality, he shed his past and took up the role he had dreamed of ever since he was a boy: as the champion of our ascent into space. Perhaps he reinvented himself morally too, for his speeches and presentations throughout the rest of his life were informed not just by his abiding love of rockets, but also a passionate belief in human values. " -Bizony p30
Von Braun and Disney
"In the hope that its involvement would bring about greater public interest in the future of the space program, von Braun also began working with Walt Disney and the Disney studios as a technical director, initially for three television films about space exploration. The initial broadcast devoted to space exploration was Man in Space, which first went on air on March 9, 1955, drawing 42 million viewers and unofficially the second-highest rated television show in American history." -wiki
Two men that had a million ideas for the future, almost all of them utopian, ideal, flawless. The art that designed space stations and future worlds turned into Imagineering.
Conspiracy Theories regarding Von Braun:
It has been proposed that through some occult means or perhaps through one of two downed UFOs, that the Nazis got their hands on bizarre seemingly "alien" technology. Some say that Von Braun had admitted to contact, as a form of technological help from other beings...
In 1967 Von Braun visited Antartica
"Find yourself a copy of National Geographic, October 1968. I found one last month during my first search. On page 568 it has a 24-page article Antarctica: Icy Testing Ground for Space by Samuel W. Matthews, which might answer some of your questions. There was a large programme of study. In brief, it made perfect sense for NASA to be studying one of the most hostile environments on earth to get some idea of what environments off earth might be like. On page 571 it has a brief, and its only, mention of von Braun:
"Last January," a young Ph.D. at Byrd told me casually, "Dr. Wernher von Braun flew in to see our moon station. Here we are, out on the end of a limb, buried in the ice, living under the most hostile conditions. No need to wonder what a base on the moon might be like someday. We're it already."
During my own month on "the Ice," as all Antarctic hands call their world, I found:
Biologists from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California studying microscopic forms of life that somehow survive the gripping cold, desert drought, and lack of sunlight half the year in mysteriously snow-free valleys. "We hope to learn how to detect life on Mars, if any exists there," they said.
Physicists measuring upper-atmospheric disturbances and solar winds that could menace moon-bound astronauts. Psychophysiologists recording men's sleeping and dreaming behavior, to learn the effects of living under cramped and totally isolated conditions, as in a future space station. Scientists of a dozen nations working together, under international exchange programs, without regard to political differences. There is no cold war in earth's coldest land. Tourists, farther south than ever before...
Even more intriguing than von Braun visiting an Antarctic research station is a United States Rear Admiral visiting a Russian Station there, at the height of the cold war. The caption to the photo on page 587 says: Russian hospitality: Soviet leader Boris Belyaev, right, spreads a welcome at pinup-decorated Vostok Station. U.S. Antarctic commander Rear Adm. J. Lloyd Abbot, Jr., and Jerry Huffman, senior National Science Foundation representative, flew in two American scientists for joint ionosphere studies. Likewise, Russians work each year at U.S. bases. The article has the names of ships I forgot decades ago (Eltanin, Burton Island, Westwind, and on page 577 it has a photo of the red-hulled ship Magga Dan//, a name I hadn't heard since 1968. It took the first 21 tourists to Antarctica, and because it left from New Zealand it was in our news at the time"
