An unidentified 40-year old American wearing a green polo shirt was in charge of the contingent of drug traffickers on the ground awaiting the arrival of the DC9 “Cocaine One” airliner arriving from Venezuela on the evening of April 11th with a spectacular haul of 5.5 tons of pure cocaine aboard, according to a recent article in Mexican newspaper Proceso by a respected Mexican journalist.
Although much about the journey of the airliner is still shrouded in mystery, amid the conflicting reports the outlines of what happened are beginning to become clear.
From various accounts in the Mexican press, we have pieced together the following story of what occurred during the shipment from Venezuela to Mexico of 5.5 tons of cocaine on its way to the U.S. until interdicted almost by accident at a tiny airport that closes each night at 6 p.m.
Reinforcing what we’ve learned about the powerful forces behind the DC9’s flight in the U.S., the plane’s progress through Mexico was being arranged through the involvement by Mexican Federal officials.

We're from the government. We're here to help."
There’s an atmosphere of increasing tension in the terminal. A significant number of the airport’s regular security detail has made themselves scarce. The smart ones called in sick, including several suspected of involvement in drug trafficking.

Home free with a big wad and a bottle of Jack
Nor is it an accident, apparently, that they are Mexican Federal government employees.
One control tower employee is approached by an American, described as about 40 years old, with blond hair, a deep tan, and a green polo shirt.
The American not only wants the airport to allow the plane to land... he also wants the tower to certify the flight, which means the DC9 can then continue its journey into Mexico as a domestic flight. No need to go through customs.
Home free.
The American, cliché that he is, carries a Big Wad. He offers to pay cash. But his money was in dollars, the controller explained later. The airport operations office doesn’t take foreign currency, they told him. They didn’t want his bribe. His offer was refused.
Surely they had been asked to bend the rules before. The tension was palpable...The continuing mystery is why she turned him down.
“He indicated to me that the plane would just refuel and then head towards Toluca,” the employee stated.
She knew what he wanted. He isn't going to get it.
Forget the fire. Save the suitcases!
The DC9 rolled to a stop on the apron as far from the terminal as it could get. Even though the pilot had radioed the tower to alert them to a problem in the hydraulic system in the undercarriage of the plane. A flaw in a brake line. And indeed, while it was landing smoke was visible coming from the area around one of the tires.
With the danger of a fire, firefighters rushed to the plane. But they were waved away from the plane when they tried to approach.
And despite the alarm shown earlier about an undercarriage malfunction causing sparks, the pilot now was insisting on refueling. The air controller was suspicious. The American in the control tower said he was going to find the captain of the Falcon, who could smooth things over.
But that’s not what happened. And soon the DC9 bearing the American registration number N900SA was being surrounded by Mexican soldiers pressed into service in what might charitably be called Mexico’s “uneven” War on Drugs.
The news that an American was involved in the drug shipment is just one of the new details which can be gleaned by reading what newspapers in Mexico and Venezuela have been reporting. In both countries, unlike the U.S., the story has been front page news for several months.
The Mexican press is filled with reports of the involvement of a sizeable number of officers in the Federal Preventive Police (PFP), a 7-year old FBI-trained federal police force whose main mission, ironically, is enforcing Mexico’s laws against drug trafficking.
"The cynics are right nine times out of ten."
Ricardo Ravelo, author of a recent book on drug cartels in Mexico, interviewed airport personnel in Cuidad del Carmen, a city tucked into the most remote corner of the Mexican Yucatan. They told him that intrigue had already been swirling for several days before the DC9 landed.
Agents of two Mexican federal law enforcement agencies, the Policía Federal Preventiva (PFP) and of the Federal Agency of Investigación (AFI), reportedly attempted to prevent airport personnel from calling in the military to search the DC9 after it had aroused suspicions.
“On the evening before the DC9 came in Ramon (a PFP officer) appeared to the airport with González Virgen, who said he was in the intelligence division of the PFP,” said one civilian worker at the airport.
“He said they were installing new procedures for registering landings, and that he would need to speak with all the civil employees of the terminal.”
What he wanted to talk about, the man said, was an “economic adjustment” to allow the landing of the plane loaded with 5.5 tons of cocaine.
As many as a dozen Federal PFP officers may have been working to ensure the success of the drug move. Five were in Cuidad del Carmen, and reportedly attempted to keep airport personnel from calling in the Mexican military. Others visited Mexican airports where the DC9 was scheduled to land, presumably to drop off part of the load, in Toluca and Monterrey.
Get some pepper for the drug-sniffing dog
“I noticed three men loitering in the airport, in white guayabera shirts and dark trousers,” an airport security man told Ravelo. “One I had seen in the airport before in Federal (PFP) police uniform. He began asking about our drug-sniffing dog, things like what drugs could he detect.”
The PFP has been widely criticized in the Mexican press for breaking up student demonstrations and worker’s strikes, for the large percentage of military personnel in its ranks, and for the fact that its presence has had little effect on the bloodletting between drug rings.
But now the Federal force, and its local police and military support all over the country, seems squarely in the crosshairs of the Mexican news media, which is much less controlled in its reporting on drug trafficking than the mainstream American press.
The crew of the DC-9 reportedly made frequent trips to Caracas, Venezuela. And they had close ties to the two Falcon pilots, Poot Perez and Perez de Gracia. They reportedly all worked for the same criminal organization.
There were, still, loose ends. The Mexican army had managed to capture the aircraft's co-pilot, but not the pilot. He escaped. No one appears to be too concerned.
"I either want less corruption, or more chance to participate in it.”
But there was one major point of contention in Spanish language news accounts.
Venezuelan newspapers related that the DC9 had stopped in Colombia after leaving Caracas to pick up the load.
Newspapers in Mexico supporting the Vicente Fox government tended to feel Hugo Chavez had probably personally supervised the loading of the 128 suitcases, and that probably there were FARC guerrillas standing around with machine guns watching.
They even tried to pin the DC9’s massive haul on the poor fellow from whom they had just stolen the election for President. It was, however, a half-hearted effort which didn’t stick. The charge was ridiculous on its face. Imagine Al Gore as a drug lord. You get the picture.
Another point of speculation concerned which cartel was responsible for moving the load. In Mexico, the choices seem almost endless. The Sinaloa Cartel was the favorite, followed by the Tijuana cartel, the Jalisco cartel, and an outfit supposedly strong in the area the DC9 came down in, called the Southeastern Cartel.
One thing news accounts in both Mexico and Venezuela agreed on, however, was that the DC9 was U.S. registered and American-owned. But, as if to make amends for their impudence, both countries media retailed the unlikely story that the plane was owned by “the American airline Fly,” or “US air charter company, Fly.”
There is no such carrier.
The biggest question remains unanswered. Why was the American-registered DC9 airliner(N900SA) busted in the first place, while flying what evidence indicates was a “milk run”—a routine flight flown many times before without incident? What happened? What changed?
When you’re flying a commercial airliner carrying 128 suitcases—but no passengers—you’re clearly not expecting any serious scrutiny.
So, the most amazing thing about the seizure of 5.5 tons of cocaine in Mexico four months ago is simply that it happened in the first place.
"I'm not a member of any organized party. I'm a Democrat."
A second major question posed by the bust of an American plane with 5.5 tons of cocaine may be even more mystifying:
In the face of mounting evidence that the drug trafficking organization involved in the flight maintains close ties both to President George W. Bush as well as to the national Republican Party, why haven’t the ghosts who populate the Democratic Party made an issue of the flight?
The disheartening answer is likely to be found in what we do know—for a certainty—about the uncertain business of narcotics trafficking...
Veteran Miami Private Detective Gary McDaniel educated us on the basics of the industry while we were doing research for “Barry & the boys.”"Every successful drug trafficking organization needs four things to be successful,” he had told us, ticking them off on his fingers… “Production, distribution, transportation, and protection.”
When you think about it, this is only common sense. But it also completely undermines the unstated myth behind mainstream media reporting in the U.S. about the international narcotics trade… that it is hidden from law enforcement, in a way that requires diligent police work to uncover.
The DEA's weasel from hell
How can you hide the daily workings of an industry shipping 5.5 tons of cocaine at a crack from a government that can read the make of your golf ball from outer space?
The answer is: you can’t. The police chief of every good-sized American city knows the name of the wholesale distributor selling product to street-level dealers to retail in his town.
And—this is a mini-editorial—that’s why voters should take every opportunity to defeat hypocrites like Asa Hutchinson, now running for Governor in Arkansas.
Hutchinson served as the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, where he specialized in looking the other way while the biggest cocaine smuggling operation in recorded history hummed along right outside his office window.
As a reward for Asia’s lack of effort, he became George W. Bush’s choice to become the head of America’s DEA. But that’s the U.S. side.
This series has illustrated the complicity of agencies of the U.S. Government in the case. The owner of the airplane in question, for example, today walks the streets a free man.
The DEA appears unconcerned.
Before going bankrupt, the company which painted the plane to look like it belonged to the U.S. Government, SkyWay Aircraft, was clearly up to no good. They had no use for one DC9. Yet they controlled two. The Chairman of SkyWay was a former employee of the U.S. Forest Service who claims to have been a long-time CIA agent.
He has not been taken in for questioning.
Perhaps government complicity in the protected drug trade may be easier to spot in Mexico, not because its more prevalent, but because its easier to imagine the worst when dealing with foreigners.
But we have plenty of drug lords of our own.

Drug War Beginning to Look Like One Giant Cover Story
By Bill ConroySpecial to The Narco News Bulletin
January 29, 2008
On a fall evening in a cotton field in Nicaragua, a group of armed men placed a series of torches in a line of planters along a makeshift runway.
About half an hour later, around 9 p.m. that evening, Friday, Nov. 26, 2004, a twin-prop Beechcraft King Air 200 touched down on that rural runway and came to a stop. The assembled men began to unload the plane, which was packed with cocaine, while holding the sole witness to the event, a local field hand, captive.
The Beechcraft King Air 200 on a runway in Nicaragua.Photo: Humboldt Rescue OrganizationBefore departing, the men attempted to set fire to the plane, but miraculously it did not burn. They departed the area in trucks with the plane’s valuable payload, leaving behind the lone witness, alive, and more than a half dozen AK-47 automatic rifles.
Several days later, Nicaraguan law enforcers apprehended a truck headed for Honduras carrying 1,100 kilos of cocaine. The driver was arrested and the cocaine payload seized. The Nicaraguan law enforcers said the source of the seized dope appeared to be the Beech 200 found abandoned in the cotton field. Police had found traces of cocaine onboard the aircraft as well.
The Beech 200, undamaged by the attempt to set it ablaze, was eventually turned over to the Nicaraguan military for use in future drug war efforts in that nation.
That’s the storyline provided to the Nicaraguan newspapers (links here and here) that reported on the Beech 200 incident more than three years ago. Those same newspaper reports included photos of the abandoned aircraft and list the tail number variously as MN-167-NT or MN-168-NT. However, the photos are taken from angles that fail to show the Beech 200’s tail number.
Narco News ran the press stories about this Beech 200 by a former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) special agent, who has experience working in Latin America. The source’s first reaction was to laugh out loud.
ICE, by the way, is apparently connected to ongoing operation in Latin America called the Mayan Express, which Narco News has previously reported played a role in another cocaine plane shipment — the Gulfstream II jet that crashed in Mexico last September with some 4 tons of coke onboard.
The press reports about the Beech 200 incident just didn’t smell right, given that members of a nonprofit Venezuelan search and rescue group also obtained their own own photo of the abandoned aircraft. That photo (link here) does show the Beech 200’s tail number: N168D, which Federal Aviation Administration records indicate is registered to a North Carolina company called Devon Holding and Leasing Inc.
According to press reports and an investigation conducted by the European Parliament into the CIA’s terrorist rendition program, Devon Holding is a CIA shell company and N168D is a tail number to a CIA aircraft.
The former ICE agent went on to explain the cause of his humor over the Nicaraguan press reports. He said if the armed men involved in the cocaine shipment were indeed real narco-traffickers, they would not have left a witness alive to talk, nor would they have bungled the attempt to burn the plane — which is not a hard thing to accomplish considering the flammable nature of the fuel that feeds it. Most telling, he says, they would never leave behind their guns.
“Those guns are their only protection,” the ICE agent says. “And an AK-47 is a prized possession in their world.”
The former agent says the press was fed a big fat lie, and they bit on it hook, line and sinker, because it made for good ink. The ICE agent adds that, to him, the Beech 200 incident has all the markings of a government-run operation. He says the reason the plane was not burned up is that the plan all along was to reuse the aircraft for use in a future government operation — and it was, according to the press reports, turned back over to the Nicaraguan government after all.
The CIA-linked tail number on the Beech 200, then, raises some serious questions as to the ultimate destination of the cocaine onboard as well. Similar questions have been raised about the planned destination of the nearly 4 tons of cocaine onboard the Gulfstream II jet that crashed in the Mexican Yucatan last fall. A CIA asset named Baruch Vega claims the Gulfstream II was part of a U.S. government operation (the Mayan Express) that utilized a well-known Colombian narco-trafficker turned informant named Jose Nelson Urrego.
Urrego was arrested on money laundering charges by Panamanian police about a week prior to the Gulfstream II’s crash landing. Urrego claims he worked for the CIA, according to Panamanian press reports — a fact Vega also confirms. Greg Smith, one of the owners of the Gulfstream II, according to its bill of sale, also has been linked to past ICE, DEA and CIA operations in Latin America, Narco News reported previously. And the Gulstream II itself has been linked to past use in the CIA’s terrorist rendition program, according to European investigators.
Given these realities, attorney Mark Conrad, a former supervisory special agent with U.S. Customs, ICE’s predecessor agency, speculates that the Mayan Express operation is not controlled by ICE at all, but is, in fact, a CIA-run operation using ICE as a cover. He adds that the CIA has agents operating inside many federal law enforcement agencies utilizing what is known as an “official cover.”
The former ICE agent who spoke with Narco News about the Beech 200 also suspects CIA is running the show in these drug plane operations. He says ICE is a perfect vehicle for the CIA because it can provide the Agency with a free pass through U.S. ports of entry.
“All an ICE agent has to do is make a call and the cargo will be cleared through the checkpoint,” he says.
Journalist and author Doug Valentine recently revealed the inner workings of these CIA cover methods within DEA in a story he penned for Counterpunch.
From Valentine’s story:
By 1977, some 125 “former” CIA officers had been infiltrated into the DEA at every level of the organization, especially in intelligence units, making everything possible— from black market arms exchanges, to negotiations with terrorists, to political assassination. It also put the CIA in total control of targeting.
Leutrell Osborne, a former CIA case officer, told Narco News essentially the same thing when he conveyed his concern about the merging of spook and law enforcement agendas.
“Law enforcement and intelligence operations have become one and the same,” Osborne says. “We as citizens are all affected by this because it has a major impact on civil and human rights.”
The Beech 200 and Gulfstream II cocaine planes, both now linked to CIA planes and/or assets, raise the specter of this merged law enforcement/intelligence approach to the war on drugs — an approach that tolerates or even enables drug running for the sake of some perceived higher value in the dirty world of covert action. This curious connection is magnified further by the fact that a third cocaine aircraft also appears to be in the mix: A DC-9 jet apprehended in Mexico in April 2006 with some 5.5 tons of cocaine onboard.
Given the evidence bubbling to the surface due to public faces of these cocaine jets, the pattern seems to be self-evident, even if officially our government continues to deny the evidence.
Rotating Tail Numbers
The European Parliament, which undertook an exhaustive study of the CIA’s terrorist rendition program, provided the following overview of that program in a report it issued in 2006:
Ultimately, in this inextricable net, there is also the possibility that single aircrafts change their registration numbers (as for the Gulfstrean V, from Richmor Aviation, registered as N379P, then, N8068V and then N44982).
There are indeed 51 airplanes alleged to be used in the extraordinary renditions, but, according the Federal Aviation Administration records, there would be 57 registration numbers. It comes out that some of them are registered more than once.
Among the 51 airplanes alleged to be used by CIA:
26 planes are registered to shell companies and sometimes supported by operating companies.
10 are designed as “CIA frequent flyers”, they belong to Blackwater USA, an important CIA and US Army “classified contractor”. It provides staff, training and aviation logistic. In this case there is no intermediation of shell companies.
The other 15 planes are from occasional rental from private companies working with CIA as well as with other customers.
The rotating tail number scenario seems to have played a role in the Beech 200 incident. The number on the plane, N168D, as shown in the photo from the Venezuelan nonprofit group, actually is registered to a different aircraft, according to FAA records. That tail number, N168D, FAA records show, belongs to a large cargo plane known as a CN-235-300, and its registered owner is the same CIA shell company, Devon Holding, referenced in the European Parliament’s report.
A photo and further background on this CIA plane can be found at this site.
The Beech 200’s real tail number, the Venezuelan search and rescue group reports, is N391SA — which is registered to a company in St. Petersburg, Fla., called Skyway Aircraft Inc., FAA records show.
Coincidentally, the DC-9 jetliner apprehended in Mexico in April 2006 also is linked to a Skyway Aircraft Inc. in the Tampa/St. Pete metro area. That Skyway Aircraft, based in Clearwater, is an affiliate of Skyway Communications Holding Corp., which has been in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings since June 2005. (Journalist Daniel Hopsicker has reported extensively on Skyway Communications’ role in the mystery of the cocaine jets.)
Skyway Communications, the parent company of Skyway Aircraft in Clearwater, arranged to purchase the DC-9 (tail number N900SA) via a stock swap with a Costa Rica-based firm called Dupont Investment Fund #57289, in November 2004, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). However, the jet was ultimately registered with the FAA in August 2005 by a company called Royal Sons Inc. prior to being sold to an unknown Venezuelan buyer only days before it was apprehended in Mexico on April 10, 2006, with 5.5 tons of cocaine onboard.
Royal Sons President Frederick J. Geffon is a shareholder in Skyway Communications and his company is a major creditor in the Skyway Communications bankruptcy (links here and here). In addition, Royal Sons and Skyway Communications previously teamed up to purchase a separate DC-9 via a joint loan agreement, a January 2004 SEC filings shows. That DC-9, tail number N120NE, is now registered to a company in Houston called AIRCRAFT GUARANTY TRUST LLC TRUSTEE, FAA records show.
The paper trail is complex, but it all boils down to several individuals who conducted business with each other via several South Florida companies that all intersect with Skyway Communications, the parent company of Skyway Aircraft in Clearwater, Fla. Those individuals are the following:
Brent Kovar, president of Skyway Communications;
Joy Kovar, (Brent’s mother) also an officer of Skyway Communications;
James Kent, CEO of Skyway Communications;
Glenn Kovar, (Joy’s husband and Brent’s father) listed as the original sole board member of Skyway Aircraft in its Nevada articles of incorporation, SEC records show. Skyway Aircraft in Clearwater, Florida, is set up as a foreign corporation (based in Nevada) that does business in the Sunshine State.
The Kovars all intersect through a company called Skyway Global LLC, which licensed the wireless technology to Skyway Aircraft that was the basis of a proprietary air-to-ground communications system that Skyway Communications marketed as its exclusive product. The Kovars, according to a 2002 SEC filing, are all officers of Skyway Global.
Skyway Communications CEO Kent also has an interesting background, SEC records show:
Mr. Kent served in various government contract management positions providing financial and program management services supporting national communications and intelligence projects for the Department of Defense, National Security Agency, and Department of the Navy.
And Skyway Communications itself is linked to the nation’s national security apparatus, according to a press release the company issued through Business Wire in May 2004:
As previously announced, SkyWay Communications Holding Corp. (OTCBB:SWYC), and its wholly owned subsidiary, Sky Way Aircraft Inc., have entered into a sales and marketing partnership agreement with The Titan Corporation, a multi-billion dollar US defense industries contractor who presently manages more than 2,500 contracts with a backlog of more than $4 billion dollars in the areas of Homeland Security and Anti-Terrorism, Command, Control and Communications Systems, Aircraft Defense Systems, Network Communications, as well as other information and communications systems and solutions associated with national defense.
Finally, Brent Kovar appears to have a special relationship with the movers and shakers of the U.S. political system, according to this August 2003 press release:
Congressman Tom Delay, Majority Leader, has appointed Brent C, Kovar, to serve as the Honorary Chairman, Business Advisory Council. Officials from the National Republican Congressional Committee announced that Mr. Brent C. Kovar has been appointed to service on the Business Advisory Council in recognition of his valuable contributions and dedication to the Republican Party.
Skyway Communications lost some $40 million between 2002 and its eventual bankruptcy filing in 2005. But it did manage to directly or indirectly acquire two DC-9 aircraft, one of which eventually found its way to Mexico, via Royal Sons and then an unknown Venezuelan owner, with 5.5 tons of cocaine onboard.
Royal Sons’ Geffon claims he is a victim of Skyway Communications debacle and stresses that he knows very little about the DC-9 coke jet and has no responsibility for the cocaine found onboard since his company did not own the jet when it was apprehended in Mexico.
“I just chalked it all up to a bad experience,” he says.
Brent Kovar, in a promotional video for Skyway Aircraft.Photo: St. Petersburg TimesAnd Glenn Kovar has another interesting business associate, according to a check of Florida’s corporation records. Glenn Kovar is listed as an officer in an inactive Florida company called Homeland Security Tracking Enforcement Inc., along with his wife Joy and another businessman named Donald A. Mitchell.
It turns out that Mitchell in 1996 served as the president of a Panamanian investment company called The Firm of Marc Harris, according to SEC filings. Mitchell left Harris’ firm about a year later due to a business dispute, court records show.
That was probably a stroke of luck for him given the eventual fate of the founder of The Firm of Marc Harris. Marc Harris, was arrested in Nicaragua in June 2003 on money laundering charges and is currently serving a 17-year stint in U.S. federal prison.
The Kovars could not be reached for comment. The phone number for Skyway Communications is now disconnected. Geffon says he knows only that Brent Kovar resides in the tiny St. Petersburg community of Tierra Verde.
Skyway St. Pete
Brent Kovar’s address in Tierra Verde is 121 6th St., according to corporation records filed with the state of Florida.
Brent Kovar, who served as president of Skyway Aircraft in Clearwater, lives a short distance away from the home of Larry Peters, who owns a company with an identical name (Skyway Aircraft Inc.) in St. Petersburg.
Peters’ address in Tierra Verde is 615 Monte Cristo Blvd., Florida, corporation records show.
Like the DC-9 linked to Skyway Communications that was eventually sold to a buyer in Venezuela, Peters’ company sold the Beech 200 to a Venezuelan purchaser as well, in October 2004, about a month before it was apprehended in a Nicaraguan cotton field linked to a payload of some 1,100 kilos of cocaine. In addition, since 2004, Peters’ Skyway Aircraft has sold four additional planes to Latin American buyers, according to FAA records — the most recent a Gulfstream jet exported to Panama in June 2007.
(However, this is not the same Gulfstream II that crashed in Mexico last September.)
Like Geffon, Peters says he has no control over what happens to an aircraft his company sells after it leaves the country.

“When we sell a plane, it is deregistered and it leaves my place,” Peters told Narco News. “I sell about five planes a month all over. I also have a business in Brazil that does refurbishing work on planes.”
Interestingly, the Gulfstream II jet that was ditched in Mexico’s Yucatan last September was sold to a company controlled by two Brazilian businessmen prior to being flipped to Greg Smith (a U.S. government-connected pilot) and his partner, Clyde O’Connor. However, that is likely just another coincidence in a series of coincidences involving the three cocaine aircraft.
Peters adds that he has no personal relationship with Brent Kovar, though he does know they are neighbors in the waterfront neighborhood of Tierra Verde. In fact, Peters claims he was troubled by the fact that Kovar operated a company with the same name as his company, which is something Peters says the state of Florida should not have allowed.
“I followed him [Brent Kovar] home one day,” Peters says. “He drives a Hummer with the Skyway name on it, and I followed him home, and then contacted my lawyer.”
Peters adds, however, that he chose not to take the matter to court because he could not afford an extended, costly litigation battle.
He also declined to disclose any information about the Venezuelan buyer of the Beech 200.
“I have no idea who we exported that plane to in Venezuela and I wouldn’t release that information anyway,” he says. “…There’s nothing I can do to control what happens after I sell an airplane to someone.”
Following the Vanishing Guns
So, it seems, this entire paper trail of coincidence leads back to some half dozen supposedly abandoned AK-47s in a cotton field in Nicaragua. And the odds are, if a former ICE agent is to be believed, those weapons, if they existed at all, were likely a red herring used to bait a gullible media.
Journalist Valentine, in his recent Counterpunch story, offers some insight into the possible nature of this complex trail of coincidence:
With Bush’s war on terror, the situation has only gotten worse. In Afghanistan and South West Asia, the DEA is entirely infiltrated and controlled by the CIA and military. DEA headquarters is basically an adjunct of the Oval Office. And the Establishment continues to keep the lid on the story. After sending my manuscript to two reviewers—one with CIA connections, the other with DEA connections—my publisher has stopped communicating with me. I think my editor just wants me to go away.
One can only wonder how deeply America will descend into this vortex of fear and subservience to state security before it vanishes altogether.
So, what does this intersection of government agencies and assets, money launderers, narco-traffickers, cocaine jets, and public and private companies really reveal, and how does it relate to Valentine’s own revelations? What was the CIA’s true interest in these drug flights, and how many drug shipments has the agency protected toward that end?
For now, we will have to keep digging, since nobody in our government, including the Congress, seems inclined to investigate the matter. As a result, the drug war will continue as one immense cover story that makes for good ink — and fiction.

Venice, Florida, where three of the four terrorist pilots learned to fly, is the biggest September 11 crime scene that wasn’t reduced to rubble. Investigative journalist Daniel Hopsicker went searching for evidence that Mohamed Atta and his Hamburg cadre received outside help while they were in the U.S., as authorities initially stated, from a shadowy ‘global network,’ or even from foreign governments.

"Mohamed Atta & the Venice Flying Circus"
Did 19 Arab terrorists from desert Kingdoms roam around in Florida as if they'd been listening to Tom Petty albums all their lives all by themselves? Or were they being trained here in a still-secret covert intelligence operation that somehow went horribly wrong?

Mohamed Atta was protected from official scrutiny as part of an officially-protected cocaine and heroin trafficking network with ties to top political figures, including Republican officials Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris, and it was this fact--and not the terrible lapses of weak on terror Clinton Administration officials cited by Republican Congressman Curt Weldon--which shielded him from being apprehended before the 9.11 attack. Weldon alleges that Pentagon lawyers rejected the military intelligence units recommendation to apprehend Atta because he was in the country legally, and therefore information on him could not be shared with law enforcement. But the terrible lapses cited by Weldon do not stem from the nonsensical assertion that Atta had a green card (he did not) which rendered him immune from military investigation but were the result of an officially-protected heroin trafficking operation being conducted on planes like those of Wally Hilliard, whose Lear jet flew "milk runs" [i.e., white power] down and back to Venezuela every week for 39 weeks in a row before finally running afoul of local DEA agents not been clued-in on the 'joke.' Moreover the secret military intelligence operation which identified Mohamed Atta and three other hijackers as a threat a year before the 9.11 attack, called Able Danger, was by no means the first military intelligence investigation into the activities of the Hamburg cadre. Watching the river (of heroin) flow As far back as 1991, military investigators had been detailed to Hamburg Germany, tracking what one military investigator who was there told us were Al Qaeda heroin flows from Afghanistan to the West. A two-year investigation in Venice, Fl. into the flight school attended by Atta and his bodyguard Marwan Al-Shehhi and which provided them with their cover while in the U.S. unearthed the amazing fact that during the same month the two men began flying lessons at Huffman Aviation, July of 2000, the flight schools owner's Lear jet was seized on the runway of Orlando Executive Airport by Federal Agents who found 43-pounds of heroin onboard. 43 pounds of heroin is known in the drug trade as heavy weight. In a story in the August 2, 2000 Orlando Sentinel authorities called the bust the biggest drug seizure in central Florida history. It confirms the sad fact that a massive amount of heroin is coming through Central Florida, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration special agent Brent Eaton told the paper. Its very disturbing to the DEA that more and more high quality heroin is coming from Colombia and at a cheaper price. The DEA was very disturbed enough to look more closely at Wally Hilliards jet charter operation. The result was their firm opposition to returning the Lear to Hilliard, even though no one from Hilliards company, Plane 1 Leasing, had been charged with any crime. DO JEB AND KATHERINE SHARE 'A FEELING FOR THE LITTLE GUY?' And even while his companies were being used to train terrorists to fly and smuggling heroin into the U.S., prominent Florida politicians Governor Jeb Bush and Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris publicly endorsed Hilliards operation. Governor Jeb Bush honored Hilliard's operation (called at various times Florida Air, Sunrise Airlines and Discover Air) with a personal visit, posing for photos with the "Discover Air family." Katherine Harris' endorsement of Hilliards operation was splashed across the pages of her beloved hometown Sarasota Herald Tribune. "As one of Florida's top politicians, Katherine Harris doesn't have much time to do a lot of personal traveling," the paper reported. "But twice in the past month or so, the secretary of state... has taken the 75-minute plane ride from her current home in Tallahassee to her old stomping grounds in Sarasota. Her choice of airline? Florida Air, a start-up commuter airline based here, grasping to be an air-taxi for the entire state." The Herald Tribune quoted Harris spokesman Ben McKay saying, She appreciates the convenience that Florida Air offers. Ms. Harris' reputation as a stickler for the letter of the law from the contested 2000 Presidential election was apparently put on hold on Wally Hilliard's behalf: While she was "appreciating their convenience," the operation was flying passengers without holding an air carrier certificate. The juxtaposition of the discovery of a huge cache of heroin on a Lear jet belonging to Wallace J. Hilliard, 70, of Naples, Fl, Huffman Aviations owner, at the exact same time terrorist and Osama bin Laden associate Mohamed Atta arrived to attend his flight school from Afghanistan, a country producing well more than half of the worlds heroin, would normally have had U.S. Attorneys looking up the sentencing guidelines appropriate to major RICO narcotics trafficking cases, and getting ready to throw the book at him. In fact, they did nothing of the sort, which strongly indicates that the Armys secret military intelligence unit Able Dangers inability to prod federal authorities to move on Atta and other terrorists known to be in the U.S. encountered the same obstacles, and for the same reason. In fact, the only effort made at holding financier Wallace J. Hilliard, 70, of Naples, Florida accountable was the weak one of confiscating his plane. When Hilliard sued to get the DEA to return the Lear jet inn forfeiture hearings, attempting to show himself to have been an innocent owner, his motion was opposed by the Government and roundly rejected in court. The U.S. Attorneys office opposed the plane's return. Their motion said, because the property was used or acquired as a result of a violation of the Controlled Substances Act. Court documents revealed that Hilliards leasing company, Plane 1 Leasing, had been paid in cash for each charter by the two Latin passengers, which aviation experts in South Florida said strains credulity. DEA would not return it, they auctioned it off, they told Wally they had reasons, said an aviation source in Naples. It was the first seizure in history for a so-called innocent person where they took and kept the plane. The court concluded Hilliards company knew what was going on. Affidavits later filed by the machine-gun toting DEA agents who had surrounded the Lear jet indicated Hilliard's company's involvement went much deeper than anyone was willing to acknowledge publicly. Red Flags, Red Faces, Red Blood Everywhere It was just blatant, said a manager who worked there at the time. That same plane flew that same run thirty or forty times, ferrying the same people. And they always paid cash for the rental! The red flags could not have been raised any higher. Hilliard lost his Lear jet. America lost (almost) 3000 lives. And something else as well. The fact that this story was first broken exclusively (and only) by the MadCowMorningNews, and not papers of record like the New York Times and Washington Post amply demonstrates the massive 9.11 cover-up led by the FBI which is still in place, a cover-up which has contemptuously mocked the very concept of American democracy, of a free press, and of the people's right to know. Nor were we alone in our discovery of the officially-protected drug trafficking network. FBI whistle-blower Sibel Edmonds, in the months after the attack, bumped into the arms for drugs deals. Edmonds alleged that the US State Department blocked investigations showing links between criminal drug trafficking networks and the terror attacks on 9/11. "Certain investigations were being quashed, let's say per State Department's request, because it would have affected certain foreign relations [or] affected certain business relations with foreign organizations," she stated. Even if military intelligence unit Able Danger had been allowed to notify the FBI, the information which fingered Mohamed Atta and others of the hijackers was already well-known to the Bureau. "FBI Knew Terrorists Were Using Flight Schools," the Washington Post reported on Sept 23, 2001. Federal authorities have been aware for years that suspected terrorists with ties to Osama bin Laden were receiving flight training at schools in the United States and abroad, according to interviews and court testimony. Indications of the FBI's "guilty knowledge" were widespread in the aftermath of the attack included the widely-reported fact that the FBI was at Huffman Aviation with search warrants at 2.30 a.m. the night after the 9-11 attack. An executive of Huffman Aviation told us that FBI agents were on the scene even earlier than that. "They moved pretty fast for guys in black Florsheims" "How do you think the FBI got here (Huffman Aviation) so fast after the attack?" asked the executive. "They knew what was going on here. Hell, they were parked in a white van outside my house less than four hours after the buildings collapsed." "We heard that 16 of the 19 terrorists had been on Interpol's Most Wanted list," this aviation executive continued. "But early on I gleaned that these guys had Government protection. They were let into this country for a specific purpose. It was a business deal." Amazingly, the smuggling operation being protected continues to this day. The pilot of Hilliard's busted Lear, Venezuelan Diego Levine Texar, was not taken into custody. The pilot was not arrested, according to a DEA spokesman, because of a lack of evidence, reported the Orlando Sentinel. He has since been identified as also being the chief pilot on Venezuelas Air Force One, which provides a bit of context for last week's news that the State Department was revoking the visas of three Venezuelan military officers suspected of involvement in drug trafficking. When we first published the DEAs official report to the court about the Orlando heroin bust (read it here) on our website and in the appendix to the book Welcome to TerrorLand, we received a very credible death threat... ever though the report is a public document available to anyone. And Rudi Dekkers just told his favorite newspaper, (of course, the Sarasota Herald Tribune) that he was out of work. Poor man. We guess the trips to Colombia don't count.

certain special interest have suppressed technologies. 'The imminent threat to a firm's profit margins, Suppressed inventions are taken into the realm

but it's all about maximising profit.....

PROFIT...My friend...

Suppression of energy technology occurs when an individual or group which is more powerful than the developer(s) or inventor(s) tries to directly or indirectly censor, persecute or otherwise oppress the innovations and technology, rather than engage with and constructively develop or accommodate the other technology.

Perpetual Motion Machines, Free Energy ......

Energy suppression is a theory, reportedly a conspiracy, claiming that certain special interest have suppressed technologies. The conspiracy theory claims that groups are suppressing, or have suppressed in the past, technologies that would or could provide energy at reduced costs, reduced pollution output, or would or could reduce the energy consumption of various devices. Groups most often implicated in such activity are the oil industry, petroleum national governments and, additionally, automakers. The most common perceived motive is preservation of the economic status quo and sustained increase of fuel prices. The theory is often supported by certain environmentalists because of the expected low to nil pollution produced under such theoretical technologies. Some libertarians and anarchists support the theory based upon the idea that dependence upon expensive energy is perpetuated by governments in order to control the populace by means of hydraulic despotism.
Developer(s) (or inventor(s)) perceived as a threat can be exposed to actions that may be taken to prevent continuing innovation or penalise researchers. Government or industry may act in this way. Suppressed inventions are taken into the realm of business, rather than strict politics. Nikola Tesla has been the object of several conspiracy theories of energy suppression, with claims relating to revolutionary energy generation and distribution technologies which may or may not have been utilised by 'HAARP', an American military-funded research programme. Similarly, there are claims that Wilhelm Reich's 'orgone energy' was suppressed by the establishment.
Suppression theories
Supporters of the free energy suppression theory claim that the technology exists today but is being suppressed. The principal belief is that electric companies, gas heating companies and oil companies would lose half or more of their profits with free energy available. Therefore, these companies then donate millions of dollars to governments (bribing them) to make sure that free energy devices stay out of the public market. Tactics and means of suppression include buying the patent of the free energy device from the inventor or his family, suing the inventor or patent holder and even murdering the inventor in some cases. Based on the principles of capitalism, free energy cannot be allowed. The traditional economic system contains three aspects: capital, goods and services.
Within the aspects of capital are three subcomponents:
credit, and
natural capital.
Natural capital comprises raw material and energy. This differs considerably from the orthodox definition of capital in economics. Capital is theoretically a fully-controlled component of general economics. Currently, all components are fully monitored and managed. Introducing free energy into the economic equation would have the same economic effect as giving everyone access to the natural capital, which would destroy or severely undermine the entire basis of the capitalist economic system because control over currency and credit would be reduced. According to many free energy collusion theorists, this is why free energy must be (and is) suppressed. The internal logic of this conspiracy collusion theory resembles that of the General Motors streetcar conspiracy (which, however, is more substantiated).
Economically speaking, it is easy to see what incentive there might be in hiding a free-energy device, such as to use it in a secretive environment and selling electricity to the "grid" at market prices. One might go so far as to say that a corporation, for example, would lose from free energy production, even if it had a patent that gave it exclusive use for a few months or years.
If inexpensive free energy devices existed, and were available to the general public, people would then pay next to nothing for their electric service, home heating, and/or gasoline. The world thus would be a better place. The cost of living would decrease significantly. This in turn would reduce poverty worldwide. All businesses would be cheaper to start and to maintain with lower (or no) electric, heating, and/or fuel bills, and shipment and handling costs would also be expected to decrease significantly. Greenhouses in unarable areas of the world (like parts of Russia, Chile, the Middle East, or the Sahara Desert) could be climate-controlled very cheaply, making sustainable farming possible there. More food would then be grown, which would reduce starvation. Air pollution could also be reduced, by free energy devices theorized to be non-polluting.
Criticism of the suppression theories
The main criticism of the theory, usually flawed, is that "free energy" is m,istaken for perpetual motion, which violates a law of conventional physics (usually the laws of conservation of energy). That these devices are absent in the market is more satisfactorily explained by the explanation that they do not and cannot work, and that the alleged persecution of free energy entrepreneurs is merely the legitimate enforcement of securities, anti-fraud, and similar statutes. It is perhaps noteworthy that such inventors seem more inclined to sell investment rights than to seek patents and/or sell energy.
Some conventional physicists, however, acknowledge that there is a possibility for a machine that transforms matter into energy in accordance to theory of relativity (the formula E=m·c2). Indeed, nuclear fuelled power stations operate on precisely that principle: nuclear power stations operate by capturing some of the energy released from the decay of uranium into lighter products. However, the fractional change in mass is always tiny, efficiencies are low, and the conversion is never direct from matter to electrical energy.
Various practical method of transforming matter directly into electrical energy have been researched, but such method have not operated at 100% efficiency, converting all available matter into energy. Claims have been made that magnetic monopoles can be used for this purpose, but monopoles are theoretical and have never been reported found (efforts to synthesize monopoles in particle accelerators have to date failed). Even if a practical mechanism were found, however, this would not be free energy, as it requires the conversion of mass, and therefore would not violate established laws of physics.
Some have claimed that a market economy cannot function if free energy producing sources are allowed is contradicted, some hold, by the fact that air or water, necessary raw materials in many processes, are available to anyone at no cost except transport and storage. Furthermore, if energy were in fact free, then there could (would) still be charges for costs of delivering that energy to the end user (consumer) (likewise, in many parts of the world, water is free in the sense that anyone can pull it out of a river. Purifying and delivering it, however, has profit potential). Moreover, according to established economic theories, significantly lowered energy costs would result in increased economic growth, since the costs of producing goods and services would drop. This has already occurred; raw material and resource commodities (notably coal, aluminum, textiles, and labor) dropped in price as a consequence of the industrial revolution, or when computers dropped in price and increased in power in the last half of the twentieth century. Generally, when a resource becomes cheap, other economic sectors absorb the loss, or new demands will be created.
The American TV show MythBusters examined some methods of gathering free energy. The Discovery Channel program MythBusters attempted to build a perpetual motion machine consisting of several propane tanks arranged in an overbalanced wheel, supposedly to draw energy from a heat difference between two ends of the device (with the lower end moving through water heated by the sun). Technically it did work, but its movement was barely perceptible and created so little electricity the hosts declared it a failure. Since it relied on the sun to heat the water beneath it, the device was essentially an overly complicated solar power generator. They also examined other methods of gathering "free energy". These methods generally failed, were not cost-effective, or were too unwieldy to be feasible. They did generate a spark that zapped one of the show's hosts during the investigation of a radio based device.
Over-unity devices
Over-unity (OU) is the process by which output energy exceeds input power required to produce it. OU advocates distinguish this from "perpetual motion" (and avoid a violation of the law of conservation of energy) by saying that the extra energy is extracted from some infinite, invisible reservoir, such as the "zero-point energy field".
However, to date there is no credible theory or experiment showing that such a reservoir exists. The theory of cold fusion is also controversial, but subject to more serious scientific research, with several allegedly successful tests. However, none of the experiments have been reproduced on a large scale.
Devising such machines has become common enough that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has made an official policy of refusing to grant patents for Over-unity machines without a working model. One reason for this concern, according to various skeptics, is that a few "inventors" have used official patents to convince gullible potential investors that their machine is "approved" by the Patent Office. The USPTO states:
With the exception of cases involving perpetual motion, a model is not ordinarily required by the Office to demonstrate the operability of a device. If operability of a device is questioned, the applicant must establish it to the satisfaction of the examiner, but he or she may choose his or her own way of so doing.
They state, though, that:
A rejection [of a patent application] on the ground of lack of utility includes the more specific grounds of inoperativeness, involving perpetual motion. A rejection under 35 U.S.C. 101 for lack of utility should not be based on grounds that the invention is frivolous, fraudulent or against public policy.
The USPTO has granted a few patents for motors that are claimed to run without net energy input. These patents were issued because, skeptics claim, it was not obvious from the patent that a perpetual motion machine was being claimed. Some of these are:

Lies of Our Times technologies has been prevented by wealthy elites Manufacturing Consent

special interest have suppressed technologies,....No way...your kidding....
Fuel for Manipulation?

almost 30% of the open futures interest in crude oil is from speculators and traders, and not commercial hedgers, STOCK MARKET MONEY MAKERS.... AT YOUR expense!!!!! Your paying 30% more at the pump, CHUMP!

Free energy suppression - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The spread of working free-energy technologies has been prevented by wealthy elites ... With respect to physically possible technology being suppressed,

Oil prices again reached an all-time high, reaching an intra-day high of $123.79 Wednesday. and $ 128 Friday

The weekly IEA report showed that crude oil and gasoline inventories had gone up significantly more than predicted. The crude oil inventory was up 5.65 million barrels, or 1.8 percent, to 325.6 million barrel, about four times more than what analysts had been predicting.

what takes place in the American economy has huge implications around the globe. Make no mistake, the U.S. remains the world’s engine of economic growth – apparently it’s the little engine that could. That’s because to paraphrase Mark Twain, rumors of the U.S. economy’s demise have been greatly exaggerated – for some time now – call it the Teflon Econ!

Technical Levels: Fuel for Manipulation?
The commitment of traders report indicates almost 30% of the open futures interest in crude oil is from speculators and traders, and not commercial hedgers. And unlike commercial hedgers where the long/short interest is balanced (with short interest about 4.5% higher), the speculators are net long (with short interest about 15% less than the long interest).
When a market has a lot of speculative interest, traders (and black box algorithms) closely watch key technical levels. An entity which is interested in moving the market in a particular direction can provide support at the key technical levels. For example, Wednesday if the price had fallen meaningfully below 121.54, it may have reduced the speculative excess and oil may not rallied to a new high.
Since the futures market determines the price of oil, intervention in the futures market at specific price points can have a leveraged effect to entities which profit from higher crude oil prices. You would expect oil exporting entities to sell future contracts to hedge. However the same entities can also go long futures at key technical levels and provide an upward support to the market, with speculators taking care of the rest. For example, buying futures around the 121.54 level yesterday would have provided the support needed to boost the market higher after the bearish report.
Case for Intervention: An Economic War
We have a situation where the tradable production of a commodity is controlled by a handful of nations. A significant number of these countries are aggressively opposed to the United States and would cheer if America suffers. As the world's largest consumer of energy, high oil prices are a tax on the United States.
Further we have an open futures market, where anybody can speculate with very little financial outlay. To add fuel to the fire, we have a strongly bullish investment sentiment, with investors pouring in funds into the long side. All it takes is support at key technical levels and the speculators will take the market higher.
In my opinion, this is the perfect storm. Countries which are not amicable to US interests have a vested interest in keeping oil prices high. This comes at a time where the US banking and economic system is under stress. Higher energy prices are likely to break the back of the already stretched US consumer. Oil exporting countries also know that insatiable demand from the emerging economies will always provide a support to oil prices, and will make up for any reduction in demand from the US.
We are fighting an economic war where the parties are fighting with different rules. On side we have the free markets of the US; on the other side we have the world's most powerful cartel. We need different weapons to fight this war; traditional free markets dynamics will take too long to come into equilibrium. During this period, the average American will suffer, while we ship wealth to countries not amicable to American interests.
How to Intervene?
Though a lot of observers understand the problem, there are no easy answers to this situation. I have certain ideas which can reduce some of the speculative froth while still allowing an active futures market for commercial h

This open letter has been gestating for seventeen years, ever since I began reading Ralph McGehee’s memoirs and Lies of Our Times, which Ed Herman edited. Before long, I was reading everything I could by Noam Chomsky, including Manufacturing Consent, subscribing to Z Magazine, Covert Action Quarterly and other progressive periodicals. I began enlarging my home library, which today includes several hundred volumes devoted to political writings – largely radical left texts. Due to my adventures while pursuing alternative energy, I became radicalized before I encountered the radical left, so their work was relatively easy to digest, although it took me about two years to really understand what Chomsky was saying. I have received more political education from Chomsky and Herman’s writings than from any other body of work.
My alternative energy experiences began more than thirty years ago, when my first professional mentor invented the world’s best engine for powering an automobile, and continued when two paranormal events (1, 2) radically changed my life’s direction and landed me in what is arguably the most significant attempt yet made to bring alternative energy to the American marketplace. I became partners with the Indiana Jones of alternative energy, and was in for a wild ride. I bounced back-and-forth across the United States, ending up in my hometown of Ventura, California. My adventure culminated with our company being offered about a billion dollars to cease our pursuit of alternative energy, and then being wiped out after we refused it. Being bludgeoned was a nightmare, with my partner spending two years behind bars on fabricated charges and many lives being shattered in the process, including mine. It was my radicalizing experience.
No alternative energy of significance is publicly available today, and that situation is not due to a lack of viable technologies. During my adventures, I came to understand that free energy – virtually limitless, non-polluting, forever renewable, no-operating-cost energy – has existed for generations, but has been suppressed by the same interests that wiped us out. Those people essentially run the world. Steven Greer, who is a leading free energy activist and has had a similarly arduous journey, met with factions of that global-controlling group about fifteen years ago, and they informed him that they had paid out $100 billion in quiet money over the past few generations to ensure that technologies such as free energy and anti-gravity do not become publicly available. Those payouts are part of their “benign” tactics. That controlling group begins playing rough only after fools like us refuse their buyout offers and/or survive their subtle methods of sabotage. I realized long ago that the technological aspect of free energy is not the most important one. The political-economic dynamics seem most important, by far, and many in the radical left are in a position to comprehend them.
After my radicalizing experience, I spent 12,000 hours of unpaid labor performing the research, writing and editing (some professionally hired) that resulted in my 1,200-page web site. However, no matter how thoroughly and conservatively I have documented my journey and the reality I witnessed, the public’s reaction has been one of denial and indifference about 99% of the time, with personal attacks fairly common. People cannot experience the alternative energy milieu’s reality from their armchairs, TVs, computer screens and cubicles, so those in denial pretend it does not exist if they are aware of the situation all, even though it affects their lives, humanity and the planet profoundly. After years and years of largely futile interaction with the general public, I became selective about whom I interact with. A disinformation specialist has also been stalking me on the Internet since 1997.
Some prominent rad lefties have taken my work seriously when I have written about American mythmaking, such as turning Christopher Columbus, George Washington and Junípero Serra into national heroes, but their interest has been mild when I have tried to engage them on alternative energy realities. The radical left is one of the few groups I know of that might constructively engage the alternative energy field’s reality. I have never seen any group beyond the small specialist community constructively engage that situation. A healed humanity and planet can be just around the corner, if enough people can only imagine it.

Economics, Energy, Scarcity and Abundance
One reason for this open letter is that the radical left regularly engages economic issues, and the human journey rides atop our economic reality. Scientists often have a better understanding of economic reality than economists, who tend to homogenize everything with money, perform their abstract analyses and produce misleading results. Energy runs the world economy and always has, and the recent Peak Oil controversy has brought the issue into sharper focus. Richard Heinberg has been the leading Peak Oil spokesman in progressive circles, and an interview with him appearing in Z Magazine inspired two essays (1, 2) on Peak Oil, scarcity and Heinberg’s work.[2]
Heinberg wrote in a semi-ridiculing and dismissive manner about free energy, and then refused to learn more about the very situations he dismissed. Heinberg’s solution to the current energy crisis is eliminating nearly six billion people (any volunteers?). For all of Heinberg’s failures to investigate what he semi-ridiculed/dismissed, he and his colleagues understand one issue very well: the industrialized world is entirely dependent on energy consumption, as have all civilizations for all time. From the richest and most educated nations to the poorest and least educated, energy consumption is by far the most important determinant of their standard of living. Americans currently live off the backs of eighty “energy slaves,” and they are almost entirely responsible for our status as history’s richest nation. Noam Chomsky says that anybody with a functioning brain understands that America’s invasions of the Middle East and Central Asia are about controlling the world’s fossil fuel supplies. All other factors are of minor importance.
After I finished my web site in 2002, I was introduced to R. Buckminster Fuller’s work. Fuller was one of the West’s first “comprehensivists,” and developed a multidisciplinary approach for viewing the human journey and its potential. Although his work has often been neglected, misappropriated and misrepresented since his death, his comprehensivist approach to humanity’s problems and potential is evident in his written work. Only those who see the big picture can envision and pursue the big solutions, and Fuller noted that specialization in science and other pursuits tended to blind those specialists to the bigger picture. Fuller said that such over-specialization was intentionally encouraged and made the scientists slaves to the ruling class. It is another variation of the divide-and-conquer game.
Fuller stated that humanity had reached the technological level a few generations ago whereby we could make an unprecedented transition from a world based on scarcity to one based on abundance. A world based on abundance is necessarily based on energy abundance. Fuller understood the political-economic dynamics that Chomsky has been writing about for many years, but waited until late in his life to begin writing about them, probably to avoid marginalization. Fuller was also familiar with the global energy racket, and one of his pupils, Adam Trombly, pursued free energy and barely survived the experience. Trombly is one of many who have tried bringing free energy to humanity, and all have been prevented from doing so.
Not only is there active suppression of anything that can upset the energy racket and the greatest lever for controlling humanity, humanity readily plays into the racketeers’ hands. Fuller provided a plausible explanation why people such as Heinberg refuse to imagine abundance and instead propose hyper-austerity “solutions” to humanity’s problems. Fuller wrote that for almost the entirety of human history, only one-in-a-thousand people lived to a ripe old age, and only one-in-a-hundred-thousand became an economic success, so scarcity and failure have been deeply embedded into human consciousness. All the previously proposed Utopias and solutions such as Heinberg’s have been based on shared austerity, and Fuller noted that they have always been doomed strategies. The only Utopia with a realistic chance of success is based on abundance, and an abundance-based economic system is perhaps the only chance we have of averting global catastrophe. Fuller said that if humanity’s scarcity paradigm was not overturned by the 1980s, our chances of survival might be less than 50%. His estimate might be accurate, which is partly why I am writing this essay. It would not take much effort to topple the scarcity paradigm, but first people must imagine it.
If all humans had access to a thousand “energy slaves” and their use caused nobody any harm, including the environment, that abundance-based reality will beckon. I have spent more than thirty years pondering it, and I know that I can barely imagine what it would look like. However, I discovered during my journey that humanity is currently addicted to scarcity and most people are truly afraid of abundance. The radical left may be in position to begin making the change, and what follows is why.
Why the Radical Left is in Position to Make a Difference
It took a gradual awakening, culminating with my radicalizing experience at the hands of the energy gangsters, to understand that the reason why we do not have free energy today is because personal integrity is the world’s scarcest resource. It was the primary lesson of my journey, and a sobering one. If humanity cannot muster sufficient collective integrity, we may be doomed. A world civilization with people such as George W. Bush on center stage will not survive much longer. People’s level of caring also seemed directly related to how much awareness they displayed.
After my radicalizing experience, I researched, wrote and edited my web site. The process was often spent comparing my “education” while young to my adult investigations. Much of what I was taught as a child and young adult was a compendium of lies, whether it was the “news,” history, or my professional training as an accountant and its related economic “education.” I began seeing a common thread, but not until I read Fuller’s work could I fully articulate my perception: my indoctrination was designed to imbue me with egocentric, scarcity-based ideologies. I was white, male, intelligent, educated, scientifically trained, American, human and a capitalist, and each designation elevated me above my fellow creatures, in order to justify exploiting them, usually economically. If I was a Christian, that could be added that to the list, because only Christians go to heaven.
Those scarcity-based ideologies undermine a person’s ability to comprehend an abundance paradigm. The people I encountered had invested their economic survival strategies and egos into their ideologies, and anything that challenged their position was to be avoided at best and attacked-and-destroyed at worst. Very few could or would comprehend that they were ignoring/attacking the keys to healing the planet because they would make their survival-oriented ideologies obsolete. I came to call those scarcity-based ideologies “mind crutches.” Greer recently made almost exactly the same observation.
Laying aside those scarcity-based ideologies is necessary for imagining a world of abundance. Some ideologies are blatantly obvious in their scarcity-based nature, while others are subtler. I eventually learned that only those with sufficient integrity can question their indoctrination and eventually lay those mind crutches aside. What immediately struck me when encountering the work of McGehee, Chomsky, Herman, Howard Zinn and friends was the high personal integrity evident in their work. In their analyses, they always pointed the finger toward themselves, which is a basic ethical principle that few actively practice. My initial impression of their integrity was reinforced when I eventually contacted them: they have all been among my most gracious correspondents.
Until abundance can be imagined, it cannot be pursued, and the global controllers realize this. Perhaps their greatest triumph in preventing free energy and abundance from becoming a reality has been making the ideas unimaginable to the vast majority of humanity. The radical left is in an auspicious position to begin imagining abundance, because they have already cast aside the most crippling mind crutches, such as nationalism, capitalism and organized religion. Other ideologies must also be cast aside, which can be difficult, because ideologies do not seem like ideologies to those adhering to them, but reality. Beliefs come from being told something is true. Knowledge comes from the experience of something being true.

Overcoming Ideological Barriers to Comprehension
The American ideologies which are obviously scarcity-based – nationalism, capitalism and organized religion – comprise the triune “faith” of most Americans, and are seemingly impossible for people to relinquish these days. In times of fear, politics shifts to the right, not the left, as people become more self-centered for survival reasons. If most Americans are currently addicted to their scarcity-based ideologies, then what? Even in these days of expensive energy, energy wars and Al Gore playing spokesman for the idea of human-induced global warming, nobody on the global stage is even hinting that there may be solutions that dwarf all others. For somebody who has survived the suppression efforts of those who manage the global energy paradigm, it is surreal that virtually nobody is mentioning practical solutions to our civilization-threatening problems.
What follows is a discussion of the subtler, scarcity-based ideologies that have trapped most scientists, intellectuals and the educated. Those subtle ideologies are more insidious than the obvious ones, as they seem to have solid logical and empirical bases. However, my experiences and research have shown me that they sit on foundations nearly as flimsy as those that support nationalism, capitalism and organized religion. Some of those subtler ideologies can be summarized under the categories of scientism, materialism and rationalism.
The Myths of Science
An august MIT academic recently stated that he never saw a scientist say how science should be done – they just do it. I doubt that professor ever encountered Carl Sagan, Isaac Asimov and the “skeptics,” because he would have heard plenty about how science is supposed to be done, and the difference between “real” science and “pseudoscience.” Sagan devoted a great deal of his professional life to attacking “pseudoscience” and its practitioners. With disturbing frequency, Sagan’s attacks were dishonestly performed. My Internet stalker is a prominent member of the “skeptical” community, and his work’s dishonesty is its most salient characteristic.
Sagan’s “skeptical” work is a prime example of scientism, which is the belief that the methods of science comprise the only valid path to knowledge. In scientism, science itself is made an object of worship. The so-called scientific method is like democracy and free markets – ideals that have never been seen in the real world, similar to unicorns.[3] In the West, the official creation story used to be in the book of Genesis, with God saying “let there be light,” and Adam being created from mud, and Eve from Adam’s rib. To a significant degree, the Big Bang and evolution is Western science’s answer to Genesis. The Big Bang is as fantastic as anything in the Bible, with everything coming from nothing in an instant. Astronomers have challenged the notion of a Big Bang and expanding universe, and the most prominent Big Bang heretic had to leave the U.S. to pursue his theories. Darwinian evolution also has its problems.
The idea of understanding the universe through one’s physical senses and logic has existed at least since the ancient Greeks. The Catholic Church eradicated the Greek teachings in the West as pagan, but when the “Reconquest” of the Iberian Peninsula began almost a thousand years ago, the great Islamic libraries of Moorish Spain became available to Christian scholars, beginning with the Christian conquest of Toledo in 1085.[4] The ancient Greek teachings were then gradually reintroduced to the West. Those Greek teachings helped lead to the Renaissance, Protestant Reformation and diminution of the Church’s power. From Roger Bacon in the 1200s to Francis Bacon in the 1600s, logic and empirical investigation gradually rose to prominence. During the Enlightenment of the 1700s, science and reason largely supplanted religion as the interpreter of how the universe functioned, and by the late 1800s, scientific inquiry had fully triumphed over religious dogma. The rise of science was integral to the Industrial Revolution.
However, science began acting like a religion from the early days, and its terminology reflects it. Today, we have “laws of physics.” There are no laws of physics, only theories, but to call a theory a law invests it with a quasi-religious certitude, and today’s scientific establishment punishes its heretics with the same zeal as medieval inquisitors did, if not with the same inquisitorial equipment. For instance, the so-called Second Law of Thermodynamics has significant experimental data that calls it into question.
However, the initial discovering scientist of a possible second-law-defying phenomenon (who had Einstein’s interest) had his equipment destroyed, his books burned, and died in a U.S. prison. Ironically, he was a Jew who escaped Hitler’s Germany, and as he watched his books burn in a U.S. government bonfire, he expressed his dismay that after escaping Hitler’s Germany, he never suspected that he would see his books burned again. I encountered another scientist (from MIT) who produced experimental data that contradicted the hallowed Second Law of Thermodynamics, and he was murdered in 2004.[5] I believe that the dire fates of those scientists who challenge the entrenched dogma may be best understood by comprehending the political-economic dynamics surrounding those “laws” of physics.
An informative example of how theories become prominent, dogmatized and the foundation of economic rackets is Louis Pasteur’s career. He was a chemist whose life’s ambition was becoming rich and famous. His initial discovery that led to fame – discovering chiral molecules – may have been his discovery, although Pasteur’s published account of his discovery was self-serving. Pasteur’s forays into biology and medicine, however, are haunted by the suspicion that he may have plagiarized others in his quest for fame and wealth, Antoine Béchamp most notably. A Harvard professor wrote a book in the 1970s that demonstrated how the story taught to college students about Pasteur’s first triumph in the life sciences – his disproval of spontaneous generation theory – was a deplorable example of “Whig history” in science, where students are taught expedient fairy tales. A review of microbiology textbooks written a generation after that formidable work demonstrates that Whig history is still practiced regarding Pasteur’s triumph. Howard Zinn capably wrote about how damaging such “history” is to those who believe it.
Such mythmaking about Pasteur is not innocent, and economic empires have been built on the Pasteurian paradigm. The fairy tales about Pasteur may be far more damaging than those told American schoolchildren about George Washington and Christopher Columbus because Pasteur apparently had a poor understanding of what he may have plagiarized, and his work arguably placed modern medicine on a false foundation. His germ theory of disease may be critically flawed, vaccines probably do far more harm than good (if any good at all), the short-lived antibiotic age may soon come to and end, and harmless, cheap and effective cancer and other disease treatments have been developed by those pursuing biology and medicine beyond the Pasteurian paradigm. The doctors and scientists who pioneered and used those treatments have been subjected to breathtaking suppression efforts by organized medicine.
The life sciences and medicine are rife with that kind of mythmaking and outright lying in the service of economic empires. For instance, today’s orthodox cancer treatments do not extend the lives of those they are used on, but make many billions of dollars each year for the medical establishment. Similarly, the most lucrative surgery in America, coronary bypass surgery, also does not appreciably extend the lives of those it is used on. If those immensely lucrative treatments do not extend the patients’ lives, can we call them complete failures, particularly since they are also agonizing treatments? Also, can we suspect that those worse-than-worthless treatments are also part of a racket, especially when treatments that do extend the lives of the patients, and do so cheaply and harmlessly, are mercilessly suppressed? Does it really stretch the imagination that far to suspect that the right and left hands are aware of each other and may be directed by the same brain?
Life sciences are not as “hard” as the physical sciences, so maybe we really know something in the physical sciences. By the late 1800s, the rationalist-materialist paradigm was firmly entrenched as the West’s new “religion.” Scientists believed that they were dealing with the real world with their methods. Then something strange happened. An obscure, 26-year-old Swiss patent clerk proposed the special theory of relativity, and twentieth-century physics was born. Everything became relative, with no absolutes, except perhaps change. A generation later, a number of young scientists proposed a theory to describe how atoms behaved. Quantum physics was thus born, and one of its cornerstones was the uncertainty principle, authored by a 23-year-old scientist whose theory became clear to him during a fevered weekend. Relativity and quantum theory are the two primary pillars of today’s physics. Einstein and Heisenberg had to thank flashes of creative insight for their theories, not cold reason. I have known some of the greatest inventive minds of the 20th century, and they also had instants of creative insight to thank for their breakthroughs, not reason.
The most influential study of the scientific milieu in the past fifty years is Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. Kuhn was another MIT academic, and he coined the modern definition of the term paradigm. Kuhn argued that scientists did not adopt new paradigms because of the persuasiveness of the scientific evidence, but because scientists chose to believe the new paradigm. The dominant theories of today’s physics arrived through moments of intuitive insight and state that everything is relative, that little, if anything, is certain, everything changes, and that scientific paradigms prevail because scientist have chosen to believe in them. Of all of today’s theories of physics, Einstein had perhaps the most confidence in the Second Law of Thermodynamics. If that one falls, which ones might not? The so-called Second Law helps define the scarcity-based paradigm that prevails today among the scientifically trained.
Einstein and Heisenberg were, to one degree or another, mystics, as have been almost all of physics’ giants. Einstein believed that the universe was intelligently designed, and he cheerfully admitted that modern science knew almost nothing about how the universe worked. Einstein and friends largely rejected the West’s rationalist-materialist paradigm. Isaac Newton is considered history’s most influential scientist, but devoted most of his life to alchemy and likened his work to a boy playing on the beach, being diverted with pebbles and shells, while the vast ocean of the universe had yet to be explored. James Jeans wrote that the twentieth century’s breakthroughs in physics demonstrated to scientists that they were still imprisoned in Plato’s Cave, still watching shadows on the wall. If the leading figures of the hardest of sciences did not believe that the picture that science tells us depicts reality, why should anybody else? A mystical/spiritual perspective has nothing whatsoever to do with organized religion, and organized religion is often the mystic’s greatest assailant. Ken Wilber argued that the giants of physics became mystics because they had seen how science failed to explain the universe. It may be the other way around, and their mystical orientation produced their breakthroughs. Nearly everybody whom I respect in the free energy field is also, to one degree or another, a mystic.
There are many related dogmas that accompany the rationalist-materialist paradigm. Two common reactions among the scientifically trained to the idea of intelligent life existing elsewhere in the universe are that it would not or could not come here. That first reaction is a projection of human motivation onto extraterrestrial intelligent life, in a vacuum of knowing just what may influence such extra-terrestrial thinking, and the second projects our primitive understanding of the “laws of physics” onto what technologies are “possible.” Both objections beg the question. Two years ago, I stood in a field with aerospace and military personnel and watched intelligently piloted, almost certainly extraterrestrial (ET), craft reveal themselves in the sky on request. I went again the next year, and received a similar show. There is still debate and controversy on an issue that is easily settled for those who simply go see for themselves.
Greer is also a leading ET activist, because ETs and free energy are conjoined. Greer staged U.S. Congressional hearings on the ET issue in 1997 (co-chaired by Apollo 14’s Ed Mitchell, and they had several hundred witnesses willing to testify, mostly military personnel) and he nearly died soon thereafter of artificially induced cancer, while other members of his team did not survive the experience. In the early 1990s, he briefed the sitting director of the CIA, and the sitting U.S. president avidly read his briefing materials. He was then invited to meet members of the group that runs the world, and they told him that sitting U.S. presidents and CIA directors were completely ignorant about how the world is really run. They also told him about the $100 billion in quiet money they have paid out to prevent free energy and related technologies from becoming publicly available.
That recently murdered free energy scientist resigned from MIT in protest when he discovered that MIT had fraudulently manipulated its experimental data in order to dismiss cold fusion. Arthur C. Clarke called the dismissal of cold fusion possibly one of greatest scandals in the history of science.
The ideologies of scientism, rationalism and materialism are all scarcity-based and have served to straightjacket the minds of scientists and others into believing what is possible and what is not, and those blinded scientists have almost completely abandoned a principal tenet of scientific investigation, that of observation. The scientific establishment ridiculed reports of Edison’s light bulb and the Wright brothers’ airplane, claiming that both were “impossible,” and could not be bothered to go see it for themselves. Such mindlessness is alive and well today in the halls of science and technology, and may well be worse today than it was in the days of Edison and the Wright brothers. I have had numerous interactions with physicists and scientists regarding free energy realities, and I can never get them dislodged from their armchairs long enough to look into it. Instead, they engage me in circular arguments that run like this:
Free energy is contrary to the laws of physics and therefore impossible;
The suppression of free energy is an unbelievable conspiracy theory, and you can’t suppress something that does not exist;
If you can give me a working free energy device that I can study, then I might believe that free energy is possible;
If you cannot give me a free energy device, it means that free energy’s impossibility is the most likely reality, not its suppression, because I cannot imagine anybody wanting to suppress something like free energy, even if it was possible;
Thank you for your time, but my armchair is very comfortable; I’ll sit here and wait for you to deliver me a free energy machine, but I doubt you will deliver one to me, because such a device is impossible.
I had a similar exchange with a famous person in the high-tech field in 2006. After more interaction with various people in 2006, something I had seen Herman and Chomsky write about finally became clear: most people are incapable of being rational when their survival-based ideologies are challenged, especially those who fancy themselves to be intelligent and educated; their defense mechanisms are just slightly more sophisticated than most. That situation leads to the question of whether humanity is really a sentient species, and if so, if sentience really means much.
The reasons for such responses from the scientifically trained, I believe, are several. One is that many scientists have mental and physical attributes that have been described by many terms over the years, including “nerd.” As psychology has been “advancing,” they have found that the qualities that make people “nerds” are partly a reflection of their particular talents. There seems to be a range of these qualities, with autism on the far end, Asperger’s Syndrome next to it, with hyperlexia and other “disorders” nearer to “normal.” People in the autism spectrum often have unusual mental and creative abilities, but also tend to have poor social skills and other problems (such as clumsiness or poor dexterity). Today, it is surmised that Newton, Einstein and Bill Gates had/have symptoms that place them in the autism spectrum, possibly with Asperger’s Syndrome. Those scientists in the autism spectrum relatively easily understand the abstract concepts common to math and science, but can be oblivious to body language and other cues required to socially navigate. They consequently tend to have poor social lives and a stunted understanding of the human condition. That dynamic is probably related to the naiveté of scientists that Fuller observed.
Another reason is their political indoctrination. About half of all American scientists work for the military-industrial complex. If we add the medical-industrial complex and civilian high technology, that group probably includes more than 80% of America’s scientifically trained. I work in the civilian high-technology field myself, and right wing political views predominate. The military-industrial complex is also heavily right wing in its political orientation. I have many friends and relatives who work in those environments. For instance, one relative works for a military contractor and recently said that the only show that played on the lunchroom television was Fox News, and nobody really seemed to mind. One day, he changed the channel and fled the room when nobody was around. It was turned back to Fox News almost immediately. Most people will never overcome their indoctrination, and when their bread is buttered by a highly slanted political culture, there are few incentives to ever learn any differently – except a love of the truth. The likelihood of a scientist waking up to political reality in that environment is almost zero. I have subscribed to Z Magazine since the early 1990s, and have read all manner of progressive periodical and book. I cannot recall ever seeing an article in any of those publications that was authored by a scientist in the physical sciences. As Noam Chomsky has discussed for many years, the U.S. military establishment heavily funded American universities during the Cold War, and his fellow MIT faculty are mostly right-wingers.
Ironically, Chomsky’s peers at MIT find his political views strange but non-threatening, but a few miles away at Harvard, the seat of the liberal establishment, Chomsky is regarded as the devil incarnate. That is because Chomsky is a true leftist, and his positions expose the liberal left’s fraudulent stances, which are every bit as imperialist as right-wingers’ are, but they concoct more humane rhetoric. That Chomsky’s work even exists demonstrates that the liberal left’s work is not very left at all, and is just more apologetics for empire.
Related to the political indoctrination of the scientifically trained is their economic indoctrination. I work near Microsoft, almost in sight of Bill Gates’ house, and the prevailing economic viewpoint of Microsoft employees is a belief in the unbridled “free market” as they try to get rich by working for a monopoly. They also have strongly “libertarian” views.
In summary, scientists and technical professionals receive ample rewards from their membership in America’s more lucrative establishments, and rarely have the motivation, ability or opportunity to successfully study evidence that contradicts the paradigms they have been indoctrinated into. In addition, there is often a genuine fear of straying from the herd, and great rewards reaped for quietly serving in their soft berths. That is not a pointed indictment of scientists, as this dynamic has long been observed to be common to all Americans, if not all people. Few have ever had a productive reaction to the evidence of how the energy racket really works. The danger is thinking that scientists are less susceptible to such irrationalities, when sometimes they are more susceptible. Very few of them have what it takes to effectively investigate/evaluate/pursue free energy.

Conscious Control of the World Economy
My baptism-by-fire in the alternative energy field taught me many lessons. That the global controllers existed and were vigilant was not my journey’s big surprise, although they inflicted great suffering onto us. My big surprise was how easily humanity plays into their hands, and my primary delusion took me the longest to shed because I did not want to believe what I was seeing. I finally had to admit it, after having my face rubbed in it for years. To revisit the high ethical ground that Chomsky and friends regularly stand on, the most ethical position regarding the situation is not to focus on what they do, but on what we can do. The global controllers cannot be beaten at their game, and exposing them is a perilous and probably futile task. The best we can do is making them obsolete.
When numerous family members and friends attacked and/or abandoned me and/or my partner, as he sat in jail and I was going bankrupt, I was in shock and dismay for a long time. I thought they knew what motivated me, if not my partner. In their worldview, only criminals go to jail and greedy get-rich-quick artists usually get what they deserve, and they chose to believe the blatant lies spewed by the prosecution and local media over my testimony. Some never even asked for my side of the story, because the newspaper and TV news are obviously paragons of truth. Greer cited a similar situation with an ET whistleblower and his son. The son thought his father was crazy, until he encountered the identical situation during his career. If sons think their fathers are crazy for telling the truth about what is really happening, what chance does somebody like me have of convincing the general public about the stark realities behind the world economy?
When I began engaging the public via the Internet after publishing my original website in 1996, people’s reactions were educational. They either completely denied that the kinds of suppression efforts we were subjected to even exist, or they believed the global controllers were the reason why we do not have free energy today. In my experience, neither perception is accurate. I estimate that the global controllers and their antics only account for about 5-10% of why humanity does not benefit today from free energy, anti-gravity and an abundance paradigm.
Putting golden handcuffs on ten thousand people is an impressive effort, and $100 billion dollars is a tidy sum. The global controllers have probably also spent hundreds of billions of dollars on their surveillance efforts and bludgeoning people like my former partner and me. They have a lot of blood on their hands. Half a trillion dollars, however, is a pittance to pay for ensuring that humanity is mired in economic scarcity and easily manipulated. Far more important is how humanity plays along. In 1984, George Orwell wrote that the masses could throw off the elite manipulators like a horse shakes off flies, if they woke up only a little.[6] After the ordeal in Ventura was over, I realized that a hundred people of high commitment and integrity could easily bring free energy to the public. I also slowly realized that those hundred people might not exist. Therefore, I have tried a strategy that is less risky to its participants – it only asks that people become aware. If enough collective sentience and integrity can be applied to merely attempting to understand and discuss the free energy milieu’s reality, it may catalyze enough awareness so humanity can go over the top. However, I have yet to find a group willing to lay aside its scarcity-based ideologies in pursuit of a healed humanity and planet.
As I began reading Chomsky’s work and digesting the radical left’s perspective, it quickly became evident that structural analysis was preferred over “conspiracy theories” to explain how the world works. I noticed a visceral, almost violent, aversion amongst the radical left to the notion that aspects of the global political-economic system are consciously managed through surreptitious means. I also noticed that, with rare exceptions such as David Edwards, there were no religious people among the radical left’s members, and the rationalist-materialist paradigm seemed firmly entrenched, as it is with most scientists.
In early 1989, before I mortgaged my life to help free my partner from jail, I met a policeman who helped prevent me from wasting my time begging the federal government to intervene. His advice directly led to my partner’s release from jail. That policeman also wrote a book about his adventures in Southern California, adventures that he almost did not survive. In his book, he recounted an extraordinary event that transpired in late 1963. The policeman was Audie Murphy’s friend. Murphy was America’s most decorated war hero and a friend of Bill Decker, who was Dallas County’s sheriff. Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald as he was being transferred to Decker’s custody. In December 1963, Murphy, Decker, my policeman friend and his partner met with a frightened John Tower, who revealed Oswald’s true involvement in the John F. Kennedy assassination: Oswald was a military intelligence operative involved in a covert operation led by E. Howard Hunt that planned to stage a fake assassination attempt on JFK and pin it on Cuba, to justify invading it. The operation somehow backfired, and a fake assassination attempt turned into a real one.
When I read that story in 1989, it spurred my interest in the JFK assassination. Since then, I have read about ten thousand pages of JFK material and analyzed a great deal of the JFK assassination evidence. The center-of-gravity of my research was comparing how the evidence fit with my friend’s story. I never found any piece of credible evidence that contradicted his story and, over the years, new evidence has sometimes provided stunning validation of it. For instance, Hunt’s brainchild seemed like an offspring or parallel effort to Operation Northwoods. After I wrote the first draft of this essay, Hunt’s “deathbed confession” was published in Rolling Stone Magazine. While his confession’s veracity is suspect, even doubted by his son, it is another strand of evidence that makes it increasingly difficult to swallow the “lone nut” story of the JFK hit. In 2006, I became aware of serious investigation into the Tower/Oswald story, and I briefly joined the best discussion I have encountered on the issue. One impressive investigator informed me that he also knew of no reason why the Tower/Oswald story would not be true.
Because of my proximity to the situation, I was about 99.9% certain that Oswald was not JFK’s “lone nut” assassin. The goal of my JFK research was never to “solve the crime” and unmask the conspirators, but to challenge the legitimacy of a system that produced the fiction known as The Warren Commission Report. It has been educational to see how various factions have dealt with the issue. Chomsky wrote a book that debunked any possible CIA motive for involvement in the JFK hit.[7] Parts of his thesis I tend to agree with, because the CIA’s leadership may not have been behind the real assassination. However, the JFK hit created a small firestorm amongst the radical left, with Michael Parenti criticizing not only Chomsky’s analysis of the power structure’s motives regarding JFK, but Parenti also wrote that the left had a “conspiracy-phobia.”
I immersed myself in the JFK assassination evidence and interacted with the independent researcher community. There are undoubtedly disinformation specialists in the JFK researcher community, both free-lance and on somebody’s payroll, and many varieties of establishment defenders. However, as with free energy, the collective behavior of the sincere JFK researchers may be the biggest reason why they have not gained much traction on the issue. I became involved with other “conspiratorial” milieus, such as the controversy surrounding the moon landings, and I have interacted with independent researchers of the events of September 11, 2001. I had seen enough similarities to generalize about what I saw. With striking similarity to people’s reactions to free energy, few have had balanced reactions to the idea that Oswald was not a lone nut or that the attacks on America on 9/11 may have been at least partly an inside job.
On JFK, the radical left has largely dismissed any relevance of JFK’s death to U.S. foreign or domestic policy or world events, so they do not really care if JFK was murdered by Oswald or not. The liberal left is less dismissive of an American president’s significance, but generally cannot bring itself to believe that our government has covered-up the evidence that shows that Oswald did not act alone. The right wing has its factions too, and one of their predominant themes is that JFK’s presidency was some kind of Golden Age, and the American nation has been going straight down the toilet since his murder. Those perspectives can be endlessly debated, but what interested me was the radical left’s aversion to the idea that such events might be consciously orchestrated. I have now seen it many times in leftist writings. An astute, longtime observer of Chomsky’s work and the fervor surrounding it believes that Chomsky accepts the official stories of JFK, 9/11 and Pearl Harbor partly due to his “need to ensure a minimum level of personal security in his professional life, in other words plain survival for one who is consistently challenging conventional assumptions.” If true, it is understandable and something that Chomsky may not even be consciously aware of.
Not long after 9/11, Z Magazine made its editorial position clear: it preferred structural analysis largely to the exclusion of the consideration that power structure members consciously orchestrated events towards a desired end. In their article, Stephen R. Shalom and Michael Albert provided some common critiques of the conspiratorial mindset and how it can go astray. However, they also use labels such as “conspiracy buff” and “right wing crazies” as they dismiss the evidence that 9/11 might have partly been an inside job. Other leftists have produced startling, Limbaugh/Coulter-style invective regarding those who consider the “inside job” angle of 9/11. George Monbiot, who seems more liberal left more than radical left, wrote in The Guardian in February 2007 that to even consider the “inside job” aspect of 9/11 was to become a “gibbering idiot” (here is a rebuttal). Alexander Cockburn, one of Chomsky’s colleagues and an editor of Counterpunch, which I consider one of America’s best political publications, has launched vitriol at the “9/11 Conspiracy Nuts” and other “conspiracy buffs” for a long time. Ironically, Counterpunch has recently advocated the “Israel knew about 9/11 in advance” theory. The Israel-involvement theory is no more or less tenable than many other 9/11 angles, but it appeals to Cockburn’s political sensibilities (here is a competent response to those articles).
My point here is not to debate the facts of 9/11 or the JFK hit, but to demonstrate how the radical left’s position on those issues is ideological. In their article, Shalom/Albert explicitly state that “religious beliefs are not rational or scientific,” as they observe that “conspiracy theorists” tend to behave like religious zealots when confronting contrary evidence, and that such theories “lead us to counterproductive and wrong priorities,” and they state near the end of their article that “If everything is under the control of powerful and incredibly evil forces, there is no point in fighting injustice.” They seem to be saying that even acknowledging those “evil” people and their deeds is to land on the slippery slope that leads to hopelessness and paranoia. As anybody knows who has actually played at the high levels, those “evil” people indeed exist, but their control is far less than total, and is really not that much control at all. For the herd’s size, the shepherds’ task is surprisingly easy.
Greer has encountered those who clandestinely run the world and became aware of activities that he will not disclose publicly, except in passing, because they are so horrific.[8] Again, very few have a healthy and balanced reaction to that situation. Most deny that such people and activities exist. Those that suspect or know they exist try to expose and/or punish the perpetrators. Both reactions operate from the victim principle, not from a position of responsibility. A spiritual perspective may be necessary to both acknowledge the situation and put it in its proper context, but those operating within the rationalist-materialist paradigm seemingly cannot accomplish it. Those “bad guys” are an integral and arguably necessary part of the human family, and cannot be beaten at their game. Making them obsolete and becoming immune to their manipulations seems to be the only productive strategy (and one that can eventually redeem them too), a strategy that few have attempted.
There is a vast and crucial difference between placing appropriate emphasis on a phenomenon and downplaying/denying its very existence. “Conspiracies” exist, on a scale that can be difficult to comprehend for those who have not been on the receiving end of such efforts. Pretending they do not exist misses the bigger picture. For instance, about the only reason I mention the global controllers’ efforts to suppress free energy, anti-gravity and related technologies is to answer the most common response that I receive to my tale: “If free energy devices were possible, I should be able to buy one.” Most scientists respond with something similar. Such responses reflect a belief in the magic of capitalism and the greatness of America, two pillars of America’s triune faith. If people can move beyond their denial (and few do), then most of them have other unproductive reactions.
Some of the more thoughtful rebuttals to the analyses of Cockburn, Shalom/Albert and friends move beyond the false dichotomy of structural analysis or conspiracy theories. Peter Dale Scott has been integrating the two perspectives with his “deep politics” analytics, as have others. Here is an excellent rebuttal to Cockburn and friends’ analysis of the 9/11 evidence. Various commentators have noted that the radical left’s increasingly caustic attacks on the 9/11 researcher community are partly due to the growing irrelevance of political-economic analysis that denies the “deep political” aspect of today’s reality. The good news is that not all rad lefties are disparaging efforts that challenge the official version of 9/11. A few years ago, Howard Zinn signed a petition that questions the official 9/11 story, as did Michael Parenti. Bill Christison, a former CIA officer and regular contributor to Counterpunch, wrote that attacking the 9/11 researchers was counterproductive, and the issue was well worth being made the subject of intense investigation, as 9/11 has been the casus belli for all U.S. wars and international aggressions ever since, as well the ongoing shredding of the Bill of Rights.
It took me several years of studying a vast array of material, as well as interactions with many activists from both sides of the divide, to arrive at my current understanding of the conflict between the “conspiracy theorists” and the “structural analysts.” The “conspiracy theorists” are often active members of an organized religion, and Shalom/Albert compared them to religious fanatics. The notion of conscious manipulation of the global situation by the elites is consistent with the cosmology of those religious “conspiracy theorists.” They believe that the universe was consciously created. On the other hand, those subscribing to the rationalist-materialist paradigm almost invariably subscribe to the Big Bang and evolution as their creation myth. Even though Einstein believed the universe was intelligently designed, leading radical leftists have dismissed the notion. With the Big Bang and evolution, the universe is one big accident, with nobody planning anything. Consciousness is merely some poorly understood byproduct of chemistry. The competing notions of the universe being created consciously or randomly go a long way toward understanding the mutual antagonism between the “conspiracy theorists” and the “structural analysts.” My worldview has room for evolution and creation. The greatest science is the science of consciousness, and until scientists begin factoring consciousness into their equations, they will be playing a small game.
On the energy issue, Z Magazine published an article a few years ago that lauded a work of TV fiction that depicted the Rockefeller Empire suppressing alternative energy a century ago.[9] Such activities are happening today, and are critical to the human journey and our near-term prospects.
The people controlling humanity do not need to micromanage the situation. Only a few leverage points really matter. The primary one, energy, has run all economies for all time. That is something that Heinberg and friends understand. They also know that human civilization is doomed if we run out of energy. Just as most of the giants of physics and those I respect in the free energy field were/are mystics, the global controllers do not operate within the rationalist-materialist paradigm. They have a fairly sophisticated understanding of consciousness and the human condition, and they sometimes use incredible and often diabolical technologies to keep their stranglehold on humanity. For the initiated, it is obvious that if humanity burned up all the fossil fuels and did not find another energy source to replace it, today’s global civilization has several billion “excess” people in it. That is why Heinberg and friends are called neo-Malthusians, and their solution is for humanity to immediately shed more than five billion people.
As people are currently addicted to scarcity and failure, most truly do not want to hear about free energy and the abundance paradigm, and abundance remains an unimaginable concept to them. If I had not observed that reaction countless times, I would not have believed it. Under an abundance paradigm, all scarcity-based ideologies evaporate. If free energy became publicly available, it would be “game over” for the global controllers. They understand that situation, which is why they offered us about a billion dollars to cease our efforts.
The problem with paradigms is that they rest on assumptions, and once assumed, principles are rarely examined afterward. That is how scientists tend to be blinded by the paradigms they were raised with, as Max Planck observed. The rationalist-materialist assumptions can be very seductive, and I have seen irrational dismissals of spirituality by prominent rad lefties, calling it “irrational.” Spirituality is not materialistic, but can be the pinnacle of rationality, yet the spiritual masters also realize rationality’s limits. Again, the giants of physics did not subscribe to the rationalist-materialist paradigm and their breakthroughs did not rely on rational thought processes. When my mentor invented the world’s best engine in an instant, he knew that something other than his intellect was responsible. Scientists tend to call the phenomenon “creativity.” I had a more mundane flash of creative insight long ago, and knew it did not come from my intellect. Einstein was fond of calling that inspiration “God” (as have others I have known), but he did not mean a man in a white beard. Einstein reveled in his “cosmic religious feeling.”
For the American masses, their checks clear the bank, they punch the clock, watch the tube, eat at McDonald's and are history’s fattest humans, but they are also all a few missed paychecks from being homeless. They are Orwell’s proles. Only when people try to do something that might alter the paradigm do the global controllers venture out of the shadows and intervene, such as when they froze $20 billion that some radical activists had in the bank.
In summary, the global controllers exist and they are vigilant, but you will never encounter them unless you begin getting close to the levers of power, and those levers do not reside in governments. Their organization is a deeply private one and does not have a name that you would recognize. They stand far above the alphabet soup U.S. government agencies, transnational corporations and even international elite groups such as the Bilderbergers and Trilateral Commission. The sitting U.S. president is just another pretty face.
As Fuller said, a new political system is not an answer to our problems. All political actors are “stooges” of the economic interests. All of history’s political-economic systems have been based on scarcity and will fade away in the light of an abundance paradigm. Becoming radical in economics means solving the energy issue and making humanity’s economic pie a hundred times larger than it is today, instead of fighting to preserve/enlarge the small slice that the economic “losers” currently receive. All other economic issues are of secondary importance, and I am asking the radical left to truly get radical. The left’s current radical economic manifesto is Michael Albert’s Parecon, which does not even mention energy. There is an economic reality beyond capitalism that is also beyond scarcity.
When Greer’s ET witnesses are asked why there is a cover-up, the most common answer is so that free energy, anti-gravity and other technologies do not make it into the public’s hands, and not due to benevolent intent – keeping potentially-dangerous technologies from an irresponsible public – although that argument can be cogently made and is worth considering (here is a video of him talking about the situation). I have seen leading leftists disparage the entire ET/UFO situation as one of “little green men.” I doubt that such disparagers have actually tried to see a UFO for themselves, which is easy to do. Their ideological objections to the notion that we are not alone in the universe, and that such beings are here, now, serve to blind them to the significance of free energy and its suppression. There is nothing inherently unscientific about those situations and, in fact, those realities shatter the worldview and professional egos of most scientists, just as The Brookings Institute warned NASA about many years ago. People need their feet firmly anchored on the ground in order to pursue these issues. I have watched people unravel when simply pondering these issues, and there is plenty of chaff amongst the free energy field’s wheat.
Healing Humanity and the Planet
If you are a radical leftist and made it this far, you may be asking yourself, “Why us? Why would this guy try to interest us in free energy, abundance and conscious control of the world economy, which are all such strange ideas?” I do so because every group I have encountered so far has proven addicted to their scarcity-based ideologies, and they leave the job to somebody else to pursue the truth and bring free energy and abundance to the world. Not enough people care enough. Explaining the predicament that humanity finds itself in today is as simple as that, something I learned at great personal cost. There seems to be a greater proportion of people with high integrity in the radical left than in any other group I have encountered. I hope the radical left has what it takes to develop a discussion of such novel concepts as abundance and a realistic Utopia. I know it is feasible, but one person or ten cannot make it happen, not with the global controllers’ vigilance and the masses’ inertia. A hundred heroes could, but I do not advocate that approach either. How about if thousands of the awake and awakening simply discuss it? That may be enough. I do not ask that anybody accept anything on faith. If a worthy discussion is started, I will invite some highly qualified people to it.
I was once a board member of the New Energy Movement, founded by a former astronaut. They are currently beseeching the American government for help. While I honor their motivation, in today’s environment that approach, like all others I have seen, has a faint chance of success. This open letter can be seen as a complementary attempt in pursuit of a healed humanity and planet. I have not seen any approach that seems likely to succeed in today’s world, but we keep trying. Sometimes the miracle happens, but it generally manifests for the persistent.
The ideas presented in my work are easily explored. People come from earth’s four corners to a ranch in Washington State to watch UFOs reveal themselves on request. Discovering your mystical abilities is easily done with a little training. I do not need to convince rad lefties that such ideologies as nationalism, capitalism and organized religion can be very limiting and damaging. The radical left has an advantage over those still worshipping at those altars. Can anybody think of anything with more potential than bringing free energy to humanity? Is there anything close?
Using the world’s scarcest commodity, personal integrity, to bring about an abundance-based reality is a paradox, which is not necessarily a bad thing; Niels Bohr said that wrestling with paradoxes is where scientific progress is made.
I also must present a concept that is at odds with the attitudes of many radical activists. It relates to realizing ideals. Bringing an abundance paradigm to humanity would dwarf everything that came before it. It can be difficult to imagine what a world based on abundance would look like. It is as idealistic a project as was ever conceived, and the means become the ends. I have seen too many in the radical left, all men, advocate violence as a solution. Humanity has a deep-seated belief in violently redressing grievances, and I have seen prominent rad lefties advocate coercing the elites (AKA “enemies”) into relinquishing their power. What they have yet to understand is that the elites’ power has been given to them by a humanity that refuses to accept responsibility for the world they live in. The relationship is symbiotic, if dysfunctional. Coercion and violence only lead to more. As a great master once said, the way to utterly destroy one’s enemies is by loving them.
If enough people simply became aware and made sufficient noise about free energy and abundance, the global controllers would probably disappear. They live in the shadows and cannot abide the light of day. With enlightenment, there does not need to be any “struggle.”
The human condition these days is not pretty, and virtually every activist I know of, who has played at the high levels, has become disgusted with humanity at some point on their journeys. To one degree or another, they all recovered from their dismay and disgust, and I believe that their larger, usually mystical, perspective was instrumental in their recovery. An enlightened mystic sees the divine spark in us all, and fanning that spark into flame has been the goal of all spiritual masters.
Free energy, abundance and a healed planet can be just around the corner if enough of us can only imagine it. Is anybody interested in discussing these ideas and pursuing the evidence supporting them? It does not take very many of us to help humanity over the hump and heal the planet in the process, and I hope that some of them may hail from the radical left.[10]
Peace and well being.
[1] The United States was founded during the era of classic liberalism, as exemplified by Adam Smith’s writings and those of other Enlightenment philosophers. Classic liberalism immediately became a dominant American ideology, with considerable and enduring influence. Classical liberalism is notable for its focus on rationality, personal freedom and its deep intertwining with economic theory. What we today call radicalism was born in the same era as classical liberalism, and it took the ideas of liberalism further and tended to challenge the legitimacy of all governments and economic institutions. Radical means “going to the root.”

In these neo-Orwellian days, the terms “liberal” and “conservative” have been often stripped of their original meaning and even inverted at times. Radicals tend to operate from a cleaner slate than liberals do, by rejecting more mass assumptions. An informative recent contrast between liberals and radicals, both in the United States and Britain, has been their stance regarding the American-British invasion of Iraq. Liberals have tended to align with the mainstream in defending the American/British right of unilateral invasion in defiance of the entire world (while none of the official rationales have withstood scrutiny), while radicals reject the notion on principle. Recent liberal (and “conservative” and mainstream) revulsion with the Iraq invasion is that it is “not successful” in achieving its stated goals, not that the entire enterprise suffered from corrupt motivation at the outset. Mounting aggressive wars of invasion was the primary crime that the Nazi officials were convicted of at Nuremburg after World War II. Ed Herman has described those “liberal” invasion defenders as the Cruise Missile Left. Today’s liberals also tend to defend the corporate order and capitalism, while sometimes proposing mild reform; radicals tend to challenge capitalism in toto. Parecon is the latest challenge from the radical left to capitalism. Regarding the invasion of Iraq, liberals tend to completely ignore the economic motive for invading Iraq – i.e., capturing the world’s most accessible and lucrative energy deposits – while radicals say that the economic motive, as with all wars, was paramount, and extremely so. History often vindicates the radical perspective, and is already doing so regarding America and the West’s multiple manipulations and invasions of the Middle East.
American radical leftists have a relatively unfettered view of world events and have discarded the ideological crutches that cripple comprehension in America, such as nationalism, capitalism and organized religion. The liberal left tends to embrace nationalism and capitalism, although usually with less fervor than the mainstream and those subscribing to right wing political-economic ideologies. Right wing philosophies are generally self-serving, while left wing philosophies tend to consider everybody’s welfare. I see the contrast as a measure of their spiritual maturity.

[5] This is a subject of immense, if marginalized, controversy. There have been many theoretical challenges to the second law in recent years (see also here; a more accessible argument is here). The data surrounding Reich’s discovery is controversial, accompanied by the typical acrimonious exchanges at the margins (the conflict between Paulo and Alexandra Correa and James DeMeo being a recent example). However, others have adduced data that brings the second law into question (for instance, here and here). Most of the free energy technologies that I am aware (see, for instance, 1, 2, 3) of do not violate the Second Law, but are tapping into an energy source that science does not currently recognize, which is called the vacuum and other terms.

[10] I have been asked what would happen if enough people imagined abundance in an enlightened manner. What would the outcome look like? There are many ways it could look. The simplest would be somebody mounting a free energy effort (there are plenty of potential technologies) and having the support of those who can imagine an abundance paradigm and realize that free energy would be its cornerstone. It would not even have to be financial help, just the light of their sentience (and they would not stay quiet about it). They would not be easily dissuaded/deluded by the power structure’s suppression efforts. The biggest and most painful lesson I learned was how low the integrity level of the average American was, and how easily an effort like ours was derailed, largely with the help of our “allies.” If a hundred people had supported the effort the way that Mr. Professor and I did when the gangsters in Ventura lowered the boom (almost certainly at the global controllers’ behest), the effort would not have been smashed, but would have been successful. It could be that simple. Again, a hundred heroes could do it, but the cost extracted from them can be rather high. I doubt that the hundred heroes exist, but maybe thousands of the awake and awakening could simply hold the vision. The disinformation and outright lying about Dennis Lee’s journey has been a significant reason why he has not been able to successfully rebuild his effort. Sterling Allan’s critique of Dennis’ efforts is the only honest, intelligent and somewhat informed one that I have ever seen, and I have seen a hundred of them. Again, if enough people simply loved the truth enough to pursue it, it might be enough. When the disinformation and attacks come, they hold their vision, because their understanding is rooted in a love of the truth and the desire to make the world a better place. Those who readily believed all the lies and/or helped the “bad guys” bury us do not have the integrity and discernment to help. If enough people came together with sufficient integrity and sentience, taking action will be the easy part, because it will be obvious. The hard part is finding those people.
