The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura concludes that the government is building top-secret space weapons at Area 51.  His popular TV show called Conspiracy Theory looks into some of the black budget programs that have led to a succession of high-tech aircraft and space technologies.

Some years ago a reporter from the UK-based Jane's Defense Weekly wrote a book about the origins of Pentagon black budget programs and traced the secret government architecture back to Hitler's Nazi black programs that led to weapons developments like the V-1 and V-2 rockets.

After World War II 1,500 top Nazi scientists and operatives were smuggled into the U.S. under the program called Operation Paperclip.  They created the U.S. space program, helped create the CIA and were instrumental in transferring the Nazi black budget programs to America.

In 2005 I wrote a blog post about all this.  You can see the whole thing here

Here is a bit from that blog:

In a recent book called The Hunt for Zero Point, respected military journalist Nick Cook talks much about the "black" (the Pentagon's secret) budget. For 15 years Cook has been a defense and aerospace writer for Jane's Defence Weekly, which some consider the bible of the international weapons community. Cook spent the last 10 years researching secret military programs in the U.S. and believes that over $20 billion a year is spent on these programs outside the purview of Congress. Cook states, "It [black programs] has a vast and sprawling architecture funded by tens of billion of classified dollars every year. The height of its powers was probably in the Reagan era. But it has not stopped since then. In fact, under the Bush administration it is having something of a resurgence. Stealth technology is a primary example...research into anti-gravity technology...has been going on for quite some time."

Cook traces the roots of the U.S.'s secret programs back to the Nazi scientists brought to the U.S. after WW II in Operation Paperclip. He states, "We know the size and scope of Operation Paperclip, which was huge. And we know that the U.S. operates a very deeply secret defense architecture for secret weapons is highly compartmentalized...and one of the things that's intrigued me over the years is, How did they develop it? What model did they base it on? It is remarkably similar to the system that was operated by the Germans - specifically the SS - for their top-secret weapons programs."

"What I do mean," says Cook, "is that if you follow the trail of Nazi scientists and engineers who were recruited by America at the end of the second world war, the unfortunate corollary is that by taking on the science, you take on - unwittingly - some of the ideology...What do you lose along the way?"
