The Pentagon’s Scary Plan to Militarize Ocean Life

The Pentagon’s Scary Plan to Militarize Ocean Life:

The US military has plans to create genetically modified marine organisms that can be used as underwater spies for the military. Fantastic as this idea may seem, the Pentagon’s research arm, DARPA (or Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), has actually launched a new program that aims to tap into the “natural sensing capabilities” of marine organisms, who are highly attuned to their surroundings, to track enemy traffic undersea.

The project out of DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office, called the Persistent Aquatic Living Sensors (PALS) program hopes to use everything from bacteria to large fish to find underwater vehicles by recording the creatures’ natural reactions to these vehicles and sending the data to an outside base.

recent press release about the program said it would “study natural and modified organisms (emphasis added) to determine which ones could best support sensor systems that detect the movement of manned and unmanned underwater vehicles.”

Is Mach 5 Here? America’s Hypersonic SR-72 May Have Finally Been Built

Is Mach 5 Here? America’s Hypersonic SR-72 May Have Finally Been Built:

A recent presentation by a Lockheed Martin Skunk Works executive has defense observers speculating in a frenzy about the possibility that the supersonic SR-71 Blackbird spy plane’s successor has been built.

“Without the digital transformation, the aircraft you see there could not have been made,” Jack O’Banion, a vice president at Lockheed’s Skunk Works, said at an aerospace conference last week while pointing to an artist’s drawing of the SR-72 plane. “In fact, five years ago, it could not have been made,” O’Banion declared.

Journalists immediately wondered whether O’Banion had just revealed a major secret with a slip of the tongue. While stating that the “digital transformation” from computer and design tools made hypersonic development possible, O’Banion’s statement seems to imply that, because the “digital transformation” has taken place, the SR-72 has in fact been constructed, Bloomberg reports.

This is CIA MKULTRA level stuff but hey what could go wrong with the US military’s research division DARPA controlling your emotions? Human Testing Begins: Brain Implants To ‘Change Moods Controlled By AI’

Brain implants to ‘change moods controlled by AI’ begin HUMAN TESTS:

SCIENTISTS have begun human testing on electronic brain implants designed to change peoples moods controlled by computers.

Devices plugged into people’s skulls are being developed by boffins funded by the US military’s research division DARPA.These implants will use electronic pulses to alter the chemicals in people’s brains in a process called “deep brain stimulation”.

This will then change people’s moods and is believed to be able to treat mental illness and provide therapy.

Artificial intelligence in implants will detect and study the brain to know what pulses to send – described by scientists as a “window on the brain”.

DARPA Invests $100 Million In Genetic Extinction Technologies

US military agency invests $100m in genetic extinction technologies:

Technology could be used to wipe out malaria carrying mosquitos or other pests but UN experts say fears over possible military uses and unintended consequences strengthen case for a ban

A US military agency is investing $100m in genetic extinction technologies that could wipe out malarial mosquitoes, invasive rodents or other species, emails released under freedom of information rules show.

The documents suggest that the US’s secretive Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) has become the world’s largest funder of “gene drive” research and will raise tensions ahead of a UN expert committee meeting in Montreal beginning on Tuesday.

Pentagon’s super-secret research agency DARPA now wants to genetically engineer PLANTS to use as battlefield spying technology

Pentagon’s super-secret research agency DARPA now wants to genetically engineer PLANTS to use as battlefield spying technology:

It seems the Department of Defense wants to get in on the GMO craziness, but not in what you would consider the normal way.

No, the Pentagon has not announced a military-wide transition to genetically modified foods; rather, DARPA— the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency — says it is working on developing a new way to collect battlefield intelligence: Genetically-modified plants.

What could go wrong?

As reported by Futurism, DARPA is calling the project the Advanced Plant Technologies program, and it seeks to transform plants into next-generation surveillance technology.

Study: manipulating the brain to create honest behavior

Study: manipulating the brain to create honest behavior:

Do you care if your brain is controlled in a good cause?

by Jon Rappoport

April 11, 2017

Medicalxpress reports: “Researchers at the University of Zurich have identified the brain mechanism that governs decisions between honesty and self-interest. Using non-invasive brain stimulation, they could even increase honest behavior.”

In an experiment involving rolling dice, where cheating would increase volunteers’ earnings, “researchers applied transcranial direct current stimulation over a region in the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (rDLPFC). This noninvasive brain stimulation method makes brain cells more sensitive i.e., they are more likely to be active. When the researchers applied this stimulation during the task, participants were less likely to cheat.”

That result was only obtained with people who weighed moral choices. For volunteers who were wholly committed to cheating, the brain-manipulation had no effect.

5 Pound Mini-nukes and mosquito-like robot weapons being primed for future warfare

Mini-nukes and mosquito-like robot weapons being primed for future warfare

While it may be the stuff of science fiction today, the advancement of nanotechnology in the coming years will make it a bigger threat to humanity than conventional nuclear weapons, according to an expert. The U.S., Russia and China are believed to be investing billions on nanoweapons research.

“Nanobots are the real concern about wiping out humanity because they can be weapons of mass destruction,” said Louis Del Monte, a Minnesota-based physicist and futurist. He’s the author of a just released book entitled “Nanoweapons: A Growing Threat To Humanity.”

According to Del Monte, nanoweapons are much smaller than a strand of human hair and the insect-like nanobots could be programmed to perform various tasks, including injecting toxins into people or contaminating the water supply of a major city. Another scenario he suggested the nanodrone could do in the future is fly into a room and drop a poison onto something, such as food, to presumably target a particular individual.

As for the mini-nukes, Del Monte expects they represent “the most horrific near-term nanoweapons.”

Nanotechnology opens up the possibility to manufacture mini-nuke components so small that they are difficult to screen and detect. Furthermore, the weapon (capable of an explosion equivalent to about 100 tons of TNT) could be compact enough to fit into a pocket or purse and weigh about 5 pounds and destroy large buildings or be combined to do greater damage to an area.

DARPA spent $62 million creating microchips for humans

DARPA spent $62 million creating microchips for humans:

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is in the process of making a neural-coding device capable of controlling artificial limbs when seeded in the brain. The device has had success in animal studies and the first human trials are set for 2017. The Pentagon has subsidized the institution $62 million to help foster this mind-control technology. Meanwhile, the mainstream media is pushing for the micochipping of children sooner rather than later.

During a recent televised report by NBC News , the news station purported the micro-chipping of children by the state was as normal as bar codes for consumers: “When barcodes first came out in the late 1960s, people were appalled. They were wary of them and did not understand the concept. Today, it is so commonplace, we don’t even notice it. A microchip would work much in the same way.”
