In an exclusive interview with the Voice of Russia, Bruce Gagnon shares little known facts about the militarization of space by the United States, the development of first strike space drones and the foundation of the US Military Industrial Complex by Nazi scientists bent on victory in World War III. If you thought missile defense and drones were bad, you haven't heard anything yet.
to your organization the US Space Command has publicly stated they
intent to control space in order to protect US interests and
investments. Is space now US territory?
Well, indeed the United States likes to believe that it is its own
space, and particularly the Space Command, who on their headquarters
building in Colorado Springs, just above the doorway they have their
logo that reads “Master of Space”. So, I think that it is quite evident
that the Space Command does indeed view space as US territory that must
be controlled because they clearly understand that all warfare on the
earth today is coordinated by space technology and that whoever
essentially controls space will control the planet below, in this case
on behalf I believe of corporate globalization. And so the Space Command
in our thinking has become the military arm of corporate globalization.
so today the US is developing a whole host of technologies to allow it
to fight war from space, through space and in space, controlling not
only the Earth but also the pathway on and off the planet Earth, the
pathway to other planetary bodies as resources are discovered on other
planets: magnesium, cobalt, uranium, gold, water etc.
a congressional study done back in the 1980s, the Congress gave the
Pentagon the mandate to develop the technologies to control the pathway
on and off the planet Earth. So, the Space Command sees its role in a
very-very robust kind of way.
questions just popped up after what you just said. First one: how do
they intend to “control the pathway”, I mean there is not only one
pathway off the planet, I mean, how are they going to do that?
Well, in this particular study entitled “Military Space Forces the Next
50 Years”, they talk about the Earth-Moon Gravity Well, that whoever
controls the Earth-Moon Gravity Well, essentially with bases on the Moon
and armed space stations between, what they said were the L4 and L5
positions in space, they would be able to control these.
interestingly enough, we know that it was in fact the former Nazi
scientists that were brought to the United States following World War II
under a program, a secret program, called Operation Paper Clip. These
Nazi scientists that ran Hitler’s V1 and V2 rocket programs, they were
the first to bring to the Congress of the United States, this idea of
having orbiting battle stations controlling the pathway on and off the
planet as well as the Earth below.
So, today again
there is the whole host of technologies that are being developed by the
Space Command. They say at the Pentagon that we are not going to get all
of these technologies to work, but through the investment and the
research and development in these various technologies, things like
“Rods from God”: orbiting battle stations with tungsten-steel rods they
would be able to hit targets on the Earth below…
Robles: They call those “Rods from God”?
Yes, they call it “Rods from God”. The new military space plane that is
being tested now by the Pentagon, it has shown its ability to stay in
orbit for a whole year at a time: an unpiloted space drone essentially.
And then with ground stations all over the planet that the United States
has established, what they call downlink stations that communicate with
US military satellites all over the planet. This whole network has been
put into place to really give the US, as they say in one of their
planning documents, “control and domination of space”.
Robles: More questions: The space drone that you just mentioned, it is actually… it’s operational right now?
It is called the X37B, it’s been over the past couple of years. The
testing program has accelerated and they’ve had three successful
launches of it now. Just recently, I believe it was just at the end
2012, was the last of the missions, the third mission actually. But
prior to that they had one of them spend a whole year in space.
role of this X37B, or the military space plane, is somewhat in dispute.
Some people believe that it is for surveillance, to spy on various
countries, like Russia and China. Or others believe that it is actually a
first strike weapons system whose job would be to fly down from orbit,
drop an attack on a particular country.
In fact the
Space Command annually war games a first strike attack on China set in
the year 2016. And in one of the articles, in one of the industry
publications, Aviation Week and Space Technology, I read a report about
the first weapon that was used in one of these computer war game attacks
of China, was this military space plane. So, indeed they are war gaming
with it as a first strike weapon.
you mentioned Nazi scientists a minute ago, I mean, it is not a very
widely known fact that after World War II, I believe it was, about
400,000 Nazis found refugee in the United States. Can you tell us a
little more on the scientists that were developing these programs and
working with the US Government? Can you expand on that a little bit?
Under Operation Paper Clip, 1,200 Nazis were brought into the United
States, former Nazi intelligence. They were brought in to help create
Wernher von Braun, the Nazi scientist that
ran the V1 and V2 operations was brought in. He became one of the
leaders of NASA and he built the first successful rockets that were
launched by the US military after the Kennedy Administration wanted to
respond to the Soviet Union’s launch of Sputnik.
Nazi scientists were brought in to create US Flight Medicine programs,
the MKUltra LSD-drug experiments of the 1960s in the United States,
where people were jumping out of windows and killing themselves because
they were given drugs.
The people that were running
these were the former Nazi scientists who had been doing similar tests
on prisoners of war and Jews and other people in concentration camps
inside of Germany.
So, the entire military industrial
complex was seeded with these top Nazi operatives. And I’ve always
maintained that when you do that: “Is there an ideological contamination
that comes along with that?” My belief is: indeed there is.
Robles: That’s exactly the point I wanted to make myself.
Major-General Walter Dornberger was the Head of Hitler’s secret Space
Development Program. He was brought to the United States to work for
Bell Aerospace in New York State after the war.
testified before the Congress in the 1950s. And I can quote him, he said
to the Congress:
“Gentlemen, I didn’t come to this country to lose the
third world war, I lost two already.” And he again was one of the first
to layout this vision of control of space, giving the US full control of
the planet Earth.
