It’s called HAARP, acronym for High Energy Active Auroral Research Program. It is a military project of the United States government, jointly operated by the Air Force and the Navy. The military says that “it is purely a scientific research facility posing no threat to potential adversaries and has no value as a military target.”
Nothing to worry about, nothing to see here, folks. Move along now...
The U.S. government began building it about twenty years ago, an offshoot of Reagan’s SDI program. It became operational in the year 2000. It is not exactly about research. HAARP, as it happens, is the scariest, craziest weapons system on the planet and we don’t know shit about it.
Let’s begin with a Report from the European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Security and Disarmament, which held a hearing on the subject in February, 1988. The U.S. and NATO were invited to send representatives but declined to do so.
The Subcommittee described HAARP as “a research project using a ground based apparatus, an array of antennae each powered by its own transmitter, to heat up portions of ionosphere with powerful radio beams. The energy generated heats up parts of the ionosphere; this results in holes in the ionosphere and produces artificial 'lenses'.”
The final Report concluded that HAARP had military purposes:
“Enormous quantities of energy can be controlled by manipulating the electrical characteristics of the atmosphere. If used as a military weapon this can have a devastating impact on an enemy. HAARP can deliver millions of times more energy to a given area than any other conventional transmitter. The energy can also be aimed at a moving target which should constitute a potential anti-missile system.”
HAARP consists of a system of powerful antennas, constructed in Gokoma, Alaska, and overseen by the Air Force’s Space Vehicles Directorate. The antennas are capable of creating controlled local modifications of the ionosphere. HAARP aims to control space, and to have the ability to spy on anyone and anything, but that’s only scratching the surface. It can also trigger floods, droughts, hurricanes, and earthquakes –– and destabilize agricultural and ecological systems of entire regions.
Although it has already been used on numerous documented occasions to alter the weather, it has never been part of the debate on global climate change, an omission which is not accidental.
HAARP uses have been redefined over time. According to the newsletter of the Earth Island Institute, “significant changes occurring in the description of HAARP research included a newly described emphasis on earth-penetrating tomography permitting the detection of tunnels, underground shelters and other forms of 'counterproliferation;'”
A 1993 Environmental Impact Statement drafted by the Air Force called the project a study of the ionosphere “...to better understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civil and defense purposes." This is like calling the firing of hellfire missiles an experiment in better understanding airborne trajectories.
Consider the ionosphere. The earth is wrapped in what Earth Island calls a “donut-shaped” magnetic field. Circular lines descend from the North Pole and emerge from the South Pole. The ionosphere is an electromagnetic wave conductor, 100 kms above the earth, which consists of a layer of electrically-charged particles acting as a shield from solar winds. From everything we know about it, and about the crucial role it plays in protecting earth from constant bombardment of high energy particles from space, you might think it’s a good idea not to fuck with the ionosphere. The U.S. government would not agree with you.
Another fun fact about the ionosphere. It rests above natural waves, related to the electrical activity in the atmosphere. The waves are called ‘The Schumann Resonance’, with the strongest at 7.8 Hz. These are extremely low frequency (ELF) waves that exist naturally in the earth’s electromagnetic ‘cavity’ between the earth and the ionosphere.
It is probably not coincidental that these ‘earth brain waves’ are identical to the spectrum of our own, individual, human brain waves. Probably, we ought not to mess around with these, either.
HAARP’s antecedents show a long pattern of military planning designed to produce weather control weaponry –– and much more.
The U.S. military, as revealed in congressional hearings on Oceans and International Environment, has been conducting experiments in climate modification from at least the 1970s, and it’s known that as far back as 1958 the Defense Department was studying “ways to manipulate the charges of the earth and sky and so affect the weather" by using an electronic beam to ionize or de-ionize the atmosphere over a given area, according to Captain Howard T. Orville, President Eisenhower’s chief advisor on weather modification.
By 1966, academics were working on military uses of weather modification. Two such programs, Project Skyfire and Project Storm Fury –– designed to manipulate lightning and create hurricanes –– were auditioned in Viet Nam.
Professor Gordon J.F. MacDonald, associate director of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at U.C.L.A., and a member of President Lyndon Johnson’s Science Advisory Committee –– and later, astoundingly, a member of the President’s Council on Environmental Quality –– was an enthusiastic proponent of the use of weather manipulation, climate modification, polar ice cap melting or destabilization, ozone depletion techniques, earthquake engineering, ocean wave control and brain wave manipulation using the planet's energy fields.
He cheerily wrote that these types of weapons would be developed and, when used, would be virtually undetectable by their victims. If so, MacDonald was anticipating HAARP.
By the 1970s, President Carter’s National Security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote in his book "Between Two Ages" that: "Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised... Techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm. "
By 1999, a former French military officer writing in ‘Intelligence Newsletter” referred to ‘unconventional warfare’ using ‘radio frequencies’ and said that both the U.S. and the Soviet Union had "mastered the know-how needed to unleash sudden climate changes (hurricanes, drought) in the early 1980s (using) ELF waves"
Declassified Air Force documents also anticipated the military uses of HAARP:
“From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary. In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications. Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels.”
How weather modification might become “part of national security policy with...domestic... applications” invites the sort of questions you are right now trying not to ask yourself.
The intentions of the U.S. government with respect to HAARP, though publicly cloaked in the ‘research’ fig leaf, are pretty easy to discern by review of its known history.
The Alaska facility was built by ARCO Power Technologies, a subsidiary of Atlantic Richfield. In June, 1994, ARCO sold the second phase of the construction project to E-Systems, one of the world’s largest intelligence contractors. At that time, $1.8 billion of E-Systems sales were to the CIA, NSA, and other U.S. spy operations. Half of that amount was for black ops, projects so secret even Congress has never told what they are. Shortly after E-Systems got the contract, it was in turn purchased by Raytheon, one of the 50 largest corporations in the world and a major defense contractor.
Twelve of the patents Raytheon bought, the so-called Eastlund patents after Bernard J. Eastlund, the inventor, are the foundation of HAARP.
One such, U.S. Patent # 4,686,605, "Method and Apparatus for Altering a Region in the Earth's Atmosphere, Ionosphere; and/or Magnetosphere," was sealed for a year under a government Secrecy Order. When finally published, its text was alarming. In part, it reads:
"Thus, this invention provides the ability to put unprecedented amounts of power in the Earth's atmosphere at strategic locations and to maintain the power injection level particularly if random pulsing is employed, in a manner far more precise and better controlled than heretofore accomplished by the prior art, particularly by detonation of nuclear devices of various yields at various altitudes... "
"...it is possible not only to interfere with third party communications but to take advantage of one or more such beams to carry out a communications network even though the rest of the world's communications are disrupted. Put another way, what is used to disrupt another's communications can be employed by one knowledgeable of this invention as a communication network at the same time."
The remaining Eastlund patents, according to researcher Nick Begich, told how to make "Nuclear-sized Explosions without Radiation," Power-beaming systems, over-the-horizon radar, detection systems for missiles carrying nuclear warheads, electromagnetic pulses previously produced by thermonuclear weapons and other Star-Wars tricks. This cluster of patents underlay the HAARP weapon system.
Dr. Begich and fellow investigator Jeane Manning, co-authors of “Angels Don’t Play This HAARP,” discovered that the government has accelerated its experimentation with the possibilities opened by the program. These include:
* Use of HAARP with a spacelab to deliver an enormous amount of energy comparable to a nuclear bomb anywhere on earth by way of laser and particle beams. This will be sold to the public as a weapons shield, or even as a method of ‘repairing’ the ozone layer.
* Modification of the earth’s electromagnetic field as a part of a new arsenal of ‘kinder,l gentler’ weapons.
* The destabilization of the national economies of target countries in concert with expansionist policies of the World Bank, the IMF, and the WTO. Countries which resist imposition of agricultural controls –– such as forced use of GMO crops –– may be pushed to the brink of starvation by artificially-induced drought. One advantage the military documents describe repeatedly is that target countries will not be able to tell they’ve been targeted.
* Production of nuclear weapons explosions without radiation.
According to Begich and Manning, Air Force documents revealed that a system had been developed for manipulating and disturbing human mental processes through pulsed radio-frequency radiation over large geographical areas.
This horrifying battery of violent mechanisms is not science fiction.
As Brzezinski wrote, more than 25 years ago, "Political strategists are tempted to exploit research on the brain and human behavior. Geophysicist Gordon J.F. MacDonald, a specialist in problems of warfare, says accurately-timed, artificially-excited electronic strokes could lead to a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high power levels over certain regions of the earth ... in this way one could develop a system that would seriously impair the brain performance of very large populations in selected regions over an extended period"
Fifteen years ago, Congress allocated $15 million to develop earth-penetrating tomography using signals bounced off the ionosphere. The ostensible use was cited as a means of locating minerals, munitions, and tunnels. One problem is that the frequency required for earth-penetrating radiation is the frequency most cited for disruption of human mental functions. It may also disrupt the migratory patterns of fish and birds, who depend on undisturbed electromagnetic energy fields to find their routes.
Scientists are scared. Eleanor Rauscher, an expert in high energy physics, warns "You're pumping tremendous energy into an extremely delicate molecular configuration that comprises these multi-layers we call the ionosphere. The ionosphere is prone to catalytic reactions, if a small part is changed, a major change in the ionosphere can happen."
Physicist Daniel Winter, Ph.D., of Waynesville, North Carolina, says, "HAARP high-frequency emissions can couple with longwave (extremely-low-frequency, or ELF) pulses the Earth grid uses to distribute information as vibrations to synchronize dances of life in the biosphere." He terms this geomagnetic action 'Earth's information bloodstream,' and says it is likely that coupling of HAARP HF (high-frequency) with natural ELF can cause unplanned, unsuspected side effects.
This use of HAARP technology has been described by one critic as a bunch of kids poking sticks at a hibernating bear to see what happens.
The government, however, has big plans. While the most sinister uses of HAARP include mass killings without radiation, targeted creation of drought and floods, and the ability to shut down all communications systems except the one controlled by the military, its worst implications may be that forces are being unleashed which no one knows how to predict.
One expert, an engineer, writes: "HAARP will not burn holes in the ionosphere. That is a dangerous understatement of what HAARP's giant gigawatt beam will do. Earth is spinning relative to thin electric shells of the multilayer membrane of ion-o-spheres that absorb and shield Earth's surface from intense solar radiation, including charged particle storms in solar winds erupting from the sun. Earth's axial spin means that HAARP -- in a burst lasting more than a few minutes -- will slice through the ionosphere like a microwave knife. This produces not a hole but a long tear -- an incision."
There is more, much more, but this is enough for now. With one more item.
On July 6, 2001, two months before the Trade Center attacks, something bizarre took place in Hartsville, Tennessee. According to an investigative piece by a local journalist, Alfred Webre, who personally witnessed some of the phenomena, there was what amounted to an ‘electronic warfare attack on a radio station and newspaper’ which caused the station and paper to be completely blacked out, with no workable communications available.
Eyewitness accounts are the stuff of old science fiction or new right-wing paranoia, take your pick. But the facts that can be documented, regardless of eyewitness stories, raise disturbing questions.
Here’s Webre’s report, in part:
“HARTSVILLE, TENN - Newly released documentary and eyewitness evidence now links an apparent July 6, 2001 electronic warfare attack on a radio station and weekly newspaper in Hartsville, Tennessee to a nearby unacknowledged secret access project. This secret project, eyewitnesses say, includes the U.S. Air Force as paymaster, U.S. government aircraft as transportation and security craft; military troops in black uniforms; and black unmarked triangular aircraft. The project may also include a secret electronic warfare unit capable of disabling nearby media outlets with destructive electromagnetic energy.
The targets suffered what WJKM station personnel described as an ‘electromagnetic blast” in which a power surge “entered the station not only by way of the power lines but also through the phone lines and antenna system." The whole system was blown.
WJKM general manager Ted Randall recounted numerous witness accounts and described a ‘flashing blue pulse’ which accompanied the destruction, something he noted usually accompanies the discharge of electromagnetic pulse weapons. He also produced recordings of an audible electronic hum which he said was such an attack’s electronic signature.
Witnesses said that a disused former nuclear power plant, five miles from the station and still officially defunct, received the installation of “an unusually large switching system” which, investigation showed, had been commissioned by the government and paid for by an Air Force check.
Randall noted that “Historically, the U.S. Air Force has pioneered in the development and use of electronic warfare against civilian targets and populations, notably in the NATO war in Yugoslavia.” He said that WJKM’s investigation had eliminated other possible causes of the electromagnetic blast, such as a power transformer malfunction caused by birds or internal mechanical problems. Also, of course, these possibilities would not account for the simultaneous frying of the newspaper’s system.
“Although the nuclear facility has been officially closed for some time, eyewitnesses now testify to clandestine activities going on at the site. These include tractor-trailer trucks entering and leaving the former nuclear power plant at 2 or 3 AM; sightings of C-130 military aircraft flying over the facility as if to land; sightings of unmarked black helicopters monitoring the area; sightings of military troops in unmarked black uniforms... Civilians venturing near the site have reported being aggressively ejected by a private police force of about 30 plainclothes men.
“On the air, Randall described photographs of dead, electronically-fried birds that littered a mile-square area around the radio station (posted on the station's Internet website at http://www.1090wjkm.com”).
Now it gets really interesting. Randall documented a 2.4 Richter underground seismic earthquake that struck the area on July 7th, the day following the attack. The station, Randall said, obtained the HAARP magnetometer readings for a two-day period of the attack and its aftermath and posted these on its website as well.
“Both the electronic attack and the unusual earthquake were accompanied by massive, anomalous bursts of electromagnetic pulse energy from HAARP, the U.S. Navy's electromagnetic pulse military facility and possible environmental weapons system in Gakona, Alaska. HAARP's magnetometer showed massive spikes of electromagnetic energy for both days.
‘According to Randall, " At about 10:45 AM Friday [July 6], radio station WJKM and CMR (Country Music Radio), with studios in Hartsville, Tennessee was knocked off the air by a very powerful strange energy blast! There was a crystal clear blue sky, no clouds or rain. It was not lightning"
‘According to WJKM, in the attack, "All the radio station's lines were knocked out. Several power transformers were blown several blocks away from the studios (smoke seen billowing out of one). All phone lines at the newspaper (The Hartsville Vidette), the local farm co-op and all other phones in this small radius were knocked out. Radio station transmitter lost all MOSFETS and the output - tuning network. All computers at WJKM lost motherboards, network cards etc. ISDN was knocked out. Most all the equipment Zephyr codec and EAS all knocked out."
What the devil happened in Hartsville? Webre, who claims to have discussed the matter with an assistant defense secretary at the Pentagon, who confirmed that such weapons were operational, speculates:
‘These effects on radio transmission systems closely resemble the effects on urban radio, television, power transmission and generation facilities attacked by U.S. Air Force electronic bombing in electronic warfare missions in recent military operations worldwide, including Yugoslavia and Iraq.
‘Electronic weapons with this capability are known, and can be land mounted in a facility like the former power plant, mounted in portable facilities like vans, trucks, helicopters or airplanes.
Electronic weapons may even be space-based, on satellite platforms.
‘An alternative electronic warfare delivery system may involve newly constructed relays for the HAARP installation in Alaska. The close resemblance of the Hartsville attack to other U.S. Air Force electronic warfare led to speculation that radio station WJKM may have been chosen as a test target for a clandestine electronic warfare unit located within the power facility, or to which the power facility serves as electronic relay point. The likelihood that the electronic attack was accidental, rather than an intentional military test, is low, given that the targets were media outlets.”
While HAARP is certainly real, the possibility that it was used in a war game experiment to shut down the communications systems of radio and newspaper in this Tennessee town is hard to swallow. Except of course that, as Webre points out, ‘The U.S. military has a long history of secretly testing weapons on its unsuspecting civilian population, a practice that is illegal.’
And this: numerous witnesses spoke of seeing troops in black uniforms with ‘light blue patches,’ and the letters ‘U.N.’ on military vehicles license plates. What Webre didn’t know –– because it hadn’t happened yet –– was that the identical uniforms and ‘U.N.’ plates would be later seen in Haiti during the military sweep against supporters of ousted President Aristide when the U.S. drove him from power.
HAARP is certainly real. Whether it’s being used already against U.S. citizens is not known, but that’s part of its horror: it’s a weapon which in some applications might as well be invisible because the victims can’t be sure where it came from or even what it is. Welcome, my friends, to the New World Order.
