The Secret Space Program and the Death of President John F. Kennedy
You could say that on that fateful day in 1963 when then-President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, the nation stopped being naïve. It was indeed that afternoon that the modern conspiracy theory was born, and for the past 50 years the nation has hotly debated the root cause of his death.
Some will say it’s the mafia, or maybe the Cubans? There’s also the looming specter of a group of disgruntled CIA agents who allegedly carried out an authorized hit. Sanctioned by none other than Lyndon Johnson. Many people were involved in the assassination, but the real purpose of this murder still remained elusive, even after all this time. He will probably always escape the practice of conspiracy born around that dark day.
Maybe it was Johnson’s lust for the presidency, but conspiracies are never obvious and simple and it seems too easy. For my part, I imagine that the assassination was perpetrated for many reasons, and I think that the confession of E. Howard Hunt on his deathbed gave the public a window into the real event, but I also suspect that other factors contributed to it, beyond mere greed and envy.
Although greed and envy as mortal sins have driven many people to do desperate things and murder would fall into that category. It could also be a lone lunatic, but given the events following the act, I consider that unlikely.
One interesting thing to note, and which I suspect to be a contributing factor, is a newly unearthed document that Kennedy sent a few days before the Dallas trip to the CIA Director, regarding not only UFOs, but also the opening of a dialogue with the Soviet Union at the time with a view to joint lunar and space exploration, or even more.
The Assassination of John F. Kennedy
In it, Kennedy refers to the fact that he had instructed James Webb, the administrator of NASA, to develop joint operations with the Soviet Union. He asks the director to assess “high threat” cases to confirm that they are “bonus” compared to USAF or CIA classified operations. He also points out that it is important to make a distinction between “known and unknown” so that the Soviets do not mistake our search for a common space program for intelligence cover.
However, that’s not the whole story. In the last paragraph of this document, dated only 10 days before his death, Kennedy also asks the CIA and NASA to set up a project to share data on these UFOs, because it “would help the mission directors of NASA in their defensive responsibilities”.
It was that last line that got me thinking.
Ever since I was little, I, like many, have always been led to believe that NASA was a civilian space organization. The fact that many astronauts were military was ostensibly linked to their advanced flight training versus the idea that they were indeed military personnel in orbit. It was only later that we discovered that NASA was indeed militarized.
So there are three basic factors here. The first is that there has indeed been, since 1963, research by the CIA and NASA on “UFOs”. This should come as no surprise to anyone interested in UFO research. The second factor is the development of joint lunar operations, this was the premise behind Zvesda’s lunar proposal. The third was a defensive liability of NASA against the “unknowns”.
The interesting part of all this is Kennedy’s choice of words. He does not refer to these objects as UFOs in any way, but rather opts for the characterization of unknowns which implies that they may or may not be of extraterrestrial origin. This implies that the “unknowns” were a known factor.
Additionally, a memo, called “The Burnt Memo,” given to Timothy Good, appears to indicate that the ubiquitous Majestic 12/MJ-12 cabal wanted to suppress Kennedy’s investigation of “unknowns” and the memo seeks to find acceptable means of dealing with the matter.
It should be pointed out that the burnt memo is highly controversial, but Majestic 12 researcher Ryan Wood swears to its authenticity, but at the same time it is consistent with Bill Clinton’s later claims about Roswell and UFOs, where he he would have been told that he should not pursue the matter.
What happened to Clinton, and Jimmy Carter’s subsequent reaffirmation of his UFO sighting, which he now downplays as an airplane, seems to demonstrate a level of fear in these two men. You could say they were “got” them in some way, which could include a threat. In Kennedy’s case, probably because he was unpopular in some circles, the acceptable means requested by the MJ-12 group may have included a suggestion to the right people (Johnson?) that Kennedy be assassinated.
So what’s the real story here? Was anyone or any group afraid to allow Kennedy access to information about extraterrestrials? It’s probably unlikely, I suspect. We can look to some of Kennedy’s decisions to demonstrate that he was not opposed to black ops, and with the release of Kennedy’s tapes the public was invited into the Oval Office as John and Bobby Kennedy debated Colby (head of the CIA at the time) supporting a coup against President Diem of South Vietnam. During this conversation, a very cold and calculating John F. Kennedy weighed his options, a conversation that ultimately led to Diem’s assassination.
What makes more sense is if, in releasing this information, he came across a conspiracy so vast that its implications could upend the nation or the world. In this case, the custodians of this information would do, and have done, whatever is necessary to protect their project. Not only because the information is dangerous, but also because of the countless laws they’ve broken and the people they’ve murdered to keep it a secret. Kennedy found the secret, and the cogs of the conspiracy emerged from hiding to set the ball rolling.
So what would be so upsetting? Why not a war in space? Previous research has shown that from the 1950s plans were made for the weaponization of space. Projects such as the MOL (Manned Observation Laboratory), as well as advanced research projects on particle weapons and lasers had begun long before Kennedy took office. Names such as Chair Heritage, Saipapu and See-Saw came into being even before the start of the Kennedy administration. In fact, Project Lunex, the USAF’s moon base, was to be fully operational in 1961, two years before Kennedy’s assassination.
The question is, were these programs intended to fight a possible space war against the Soviets or were they designed and deployed to fight someone else? The answer to this question is found in the last paragraph where Kennedy refers to NASA’s defensive responsibilities. Presumably Kennedy was aware that the US military was using NASA capabilities to deploy these missions and systems in space or that at least, on some level, NASA was aware of these projects and missions.
Based on these elements, I believe that while some of these projects were indeed, on the surface, designed to fight the Soviets in a World War III scenario, their true nature was more of a defensive nature against an internal aggressor. The problem was that, by all accounts, Kennedy wanted to make plans with the Soviets more transparent, which, added to his known ability to get answers, probably made him a very dangerous person. He was probably quite threatening to the powers that be.
The proposed space war can be considered the ultimate dirty war. If this were to be confirmed and made public, it would most likely lead to widespread panic. People would be scared of armed saucers descending from the sky and would have visions of a helpless US military collapsing under the onslaught of an advanced non-earth force. This kind of revelation would also highlight the level of technical progress achieved by the army over the years, which would also cause mistrust.
By conservative estimates, DARPA programs hidden in special access programs are 60 to 100 years ahead of consumer technology. Underground high-speed trains, like Elon Musk’s recent proposal, would fall short of RAND’s 1972 proposed project to build a coast-to-coast high-speed train that would not moving not at 800 km/h, but rather at 22,000 km/h, and capable of going coast to coast in 40 minutes.
Kennedy’s knowledge of these projects would have presented a danger, and as previously stated, his ability to dig for answers would have made him a threat. In 1963, Kennedy held considerable political power, which made him a target.
It’s also important to remember that ultimately it doesn’t matter whether the threat, which Kennedy called a “high threat case,” is extraterrestrial or human in origin. More importantly, these “unknowns” posed a considerable threat.
This statement implies that steps were being taken to mitigate the threat, and that is the genesis of the problem. Revealing the existence of these technologies and projects would not only have destabilized the country but also threatened the people who ran it and, as the MJ-12 memo said, that was unacceptable.
So, did MJ-12 fulfill the contract? No, i dont think so. That’s really not how an organization, a parallel shadow government for example, works. Organizing an assassination and carrying it out would likely prompt scrutiny, or potential scrutiny, of their operations. What is more likely is that, recognizing the threat Kennedy posed, they would start making suggestions and pressuring the right people at the right time to do the dirty work for them.
It’s all about plausible deniability, and someone like Oswald recruited by a group of disgruntled CIA agents like Frank Sturges or E. Howard Hunt to be the scapegoat makes more sense. Upstream, Sturges or Hunt were recruited and convinced by Johnson’s agents and given passive punishment, which is the perfect storm. A storm that ended when Oswald was killed, in police custody, by Jack Ruby.
Oswald’s assassination ended the link, and that’s how subversive covert action works. Oswald got caught, and Oswald was killed to protect the system that put him in this position.
In other words, Kennedy was killed for protection. Information protection, secret project protection and that’s how things work.
I think Eisenhower said it best in his farewell speech in 1960, a farewell speech he gave as he was fading before Kennedy.
“Until the last of our world conflicts, the United States had no arms industry. American plowshare makers could, over time and as needed, also make swords. But now we can no longer risk an emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. In addition, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We spend more on military security each year than the net income of all American corporations.
This conjunction of an immense military apparatus and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence – economic, political, even spiritual – is felt in every city, every state house, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to understand its grave implications. Our labour, our resources and our livelihoods are at stake, as is the very structure of our society.
In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or not, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. »
It was with those words that Dwight D. Eisenhower handed over power and the presidency to John F. Kennedy, and it was three short years later that the same military-industrial complex facilitated what happened that day. there, 50 years ago, in Dallas.
So, was Kennedy assassinated for his interest in UFOs? Probably not. Ultimately, Kennedy was murdered because he made the wrong people angry, angry at many things, including his interest in “unknowns.” This anger spawned support for a coup, and this coup changed the United States forever and secrets were protected once again.
