The Black Budget and Killer Microbes

51 Billion Dollars

$51 Billion.  That's how much of the United States budget isn't reported to taxpayers goes to secret military projects.  It's more than the entire military of most other countries.  It's also only the amount we know about.  There could be billions more funneled into black projects that we don't even know about.  This is just the amount that comes from tallying up the list of classified codenames that appear in the official budget.  Names like "Chalk Eagle", "Retract Maple", "Link Plumeria", "Retract Elm", and "Cobra Judy", names that have no meaning outside the walls of the pentagon.  There could easily be billions more that is siphoned from other programs or explained as an "inaccuracy" in the  federal budgeting process.

So where does this money go to?

Well that's the million 51 billion dollar question.  Of course some of it goes  to traditional covert military projects - R&D for new weapons technology, training for special ops forces.  What's concerning is the cut DARPA gets. 

DARPA, the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency, is the absolute bleeding edge of military technology.  Just look at one of their recent "official" projects: binoculars that tap into soldier's brainwaves.  Another one of  their projects, which is far more conscerning, aims to "eliminate the randomness of natural evolutionary advancement" by creating a "synthetic organism" with a "self-destruct option".  While some expect this synthetic species to be roughly anthropomorphic, I believe a much  more likely explanation - and more terrifying - is that it's going to be a bacterial strain.

DARPA has always been a few steps of mainstream science, but never that far ahead.  An artificial species as complex as a human would be incredibly difficult.  An artificial bacterial strain would be simply weponizing an already available technology.  The "self-destruct" function could release toxins in response to an external cue, meaning the bacteria  could reside dormant in a person for years until activated by DARPA.

Is this so far-fetched?  Really, the only difficult part would be making the bacteria respond to the external cue.  It would be easy to make the bacteria contain a toxin, and it would be easy to make it released when the bacterial cell was destroyed.  Radio waves are able to penetrate the human body, so the bacteria could be made to react to a specific frequency combination.  Biological systems already exist that can do this, it would just be a matter of putting everything in the same place.

The government could easily put this bacteria in our water supply, or even the water supplies of enemy nations.  With this microbe, they wouldn't need a bomber to eradicate an entire city, they would only need to hack a radio tower to kill every infected individual within hundreds of miles.  It would essential bring cyber-warfare to the physical world.

We need to be careful.


  1. Steve,

    Thanks for everything you're doing w/this blog site!

    A year and a half ago I posted my screenplay FALSE FLAG, which draws heavily on two primary sources to tell the story of the 9/11 cover-up. One is the brilliant “Miracles” essay by David Ray Griffin, who read the script and provided additional invaluable feedback. The other is a heavily researched and footnoted 2-part essay by E.P. Heidner which “ties together many previously unexplained threads in the 9/11 mystery that are most compelling,” in the words of Fred Burks, on whose website the essay appeared.

    FALSE FLAG is now a novella-length narrative with fictional characters, which I hope you’ll take a moment to check out at this link:

    Thanks to the Internet and an increasing number of enterprising and courageous individuals like yourself, the information now available on a 9/11 cover-up is voluminous and convincing. But my perception is that the audience for acting on it is a small fraction of what it could and needs to be. And I suspect that even the most damning, irrefutable additional evidence won’t grow it substantially. The choir is being preached to with brilliance and passion, but it’s time to enlarge the congregation. Exponentially.

    All this evidential intelligence needs to be presented in such a way that it permeates the cultural equivalent of the blood-brain barrier. How can we bypass that impregnable human defense system known as denial? Story-telling, fiction, is certainly one way. As I state at the end of FALSE FLAG, “Although its central characters are fictional, the story you have just read is based on the tragedy we all know so well – or, more correctly for many of us, not so well.”

    If FF has the narrative drive intended – and previous readers assure me that it does – your read and favorable mention, with a forward to others you think might be interested in it, might help to enhance the response that this monstrous state crime against the planet deserves. No matter what each of us is doing to improve life on earth for humanity and the biosphere itself, we need to know what we’re up against.

  2. Hi Steve,

    In this video 'Maat And The Divine Order', Qesankh Maa Kheperu talks about the commonly held belief that doing good brings about good things in return. He examines the traditional religion of the ancient Egyptians/Kamit people who spoke about balance and harmony as the real goal. This is compared against the Christian religious belief that good things will await you in the afterlife. Should we accept this? Or maybe, there is more to it than we were told.
