Recently Retired USAF General Makes Eyebrow Raising Claims of Advanced Space Technology

• US Air Force Lieutenant General Steven L. Kwast (pictured above) served as Commander of the 47th Operations Group at Laughlin Air Force Base and the 4th Fighter Wing at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, and had support within the Armed Forces to be appointed as the Commander of the Pentagon’s Space Force. Instead, Kwast retired this past September. On November 20, 2019, Kwast gave a lecture titled “The Urgent Need for a U.S. Space Force” at Hillsdale College in Washington, D.C.

• In his talk, Kwast claimed that China is already building a “Navy in space” complete with the space-based equivalents of “battleships and destroyers”, and that the US is not keeping up. We know that China has been rapidly expanding its presence in space in recent years, placing a lander on the Moon last year as a possible first step toward a permanent Moon base. China has also been developing “mothership” aircraft from which to launch ‘space planes’ and other payloads into space. China has been investing heavily in manned and unmanned space technologies that rivals, and in some ways, exceeds our own. Kwast believes we need a Space Force in order to counter Chinese advances and win the competition over the economy of the future and, as an extension, the political values for the future.

• Kwast says the “the power of space will change world power forever” and that it’s up to the United States military to leverage that power. The nature of the power of a competitive advantage is “you either have it and your values rule or you do not have it and you must submit. We see that play out again and again in history and it’s playing out now,” Kwast argues. “[China] will pass us in the next few years if we do not do something. They will win this race and then they will put roadblocks up to space.”

• Around the 12:00 mark in the speech (see video below), Kwast makes the somewhat bizarre claim that the U.S. currently possesses revolutionary technologies that could render current aerospace capabilities obsolete: “[M]ost Americans and most members of Congress have not had time to really look deeply at what is going on here. … [T]echnology can be built today (that can)… deliver any human being from any place on planet Earth to any other place in less than an hour.”

• Other military leaders have made curious comments lately alluding that we could be on the precipice of a great leap in transportation technology. There are many within the U.S. military and analyst community who feel a great need to boost investment in American space technologies and the U.S. military’s presence in space. That vision is taking root across the Defense Department.

• Kwast has published several op-eds in recent years pushing for the U.S. military to take on a greater role in space in order to ensure American economic dominance and what he sees as the continued proliferation of American values. Some have said that Kwast was blacklisted and prematurely relieved of his duties after speaking out on space-related issues in violation of a service-wide gag order. Kwast declined to comment.

• Is all this setting the stage for a new space race that will benefit mankind by furthering scientific and technological development, or is it ushering in the conditions for the first great space war?

Recently retired U.S. Air Force Lieutenant General Steven L. Kwast gave a lecture last month that seems to further signal that the next major battlefield will be outer space. While military leadership rattling the space sabers is nothing new, Kwast’s lecture included comments that heavily hint at the possibility that the United States military and its industry partners may have already developed next-generation technologies that have the potential to drastically change the aerospace field, and human civilization, forever. Is this mere posturing or could we actually be on the verge of making science fiction a reality?

Who Is Steven Kwast?

According to his official USAF biography, Lt. Gen. Kwast graduated from the United States Air Force Academy with a degree in astronautical engineering, and also holds a master’s degree in public policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. Kwast previously served as Commander of the 47th Operations Group at Laughlin Air Force Base and the 4th Fighter Wing at Seymour Johnson AFB. Kwast boasts more than 3,300 flight hours in the F-15E, T-6, T-37, and T-38 and over 650 combat hours.

USAF

Lieutenant General Steven L. Kwast

Lt. Gen. Kwast most recently served as Commander of the Air Education and Training Command (AETC) at Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA), but retired in August. According to some reports, Kwast was prematurely relieved of his duties at JBSA and blacklisted for promotion after speaking out on space-related issues despite a service-wide gag order. Kwast declined to comment on the reports and retired on September 1, 2019.

Despite the controversy surrounding his removal from his post at AETC, some defense analysts and Lt. Gen. Kwast’s own supporters within the Armed Forces were suggesting prior to his retirement that he should be appointed as Commander of the Pentagon’s budding Space Force. Kwast has published several op-eds in recent years pushing for the U.S. military to take on a greater role in space in order to ensure American economic dominance and what he sees as the continued proliferation of American values.

Gaining The High Ground In Space

Kwast delivered a lecture at Hillsdale College in Washington, D.C. on November 20, 2019, titled “The Urgent Need for a U.S. Space Force.” Kwast’s wide-ranging speech described the power of new technologies to revolutionize humankind, referencing the competitive advantage the discovery of fire offered to early humans and the strategic value that nuclear weapons offered 20th-century superpowers. When it comes to current revolutionary technologies, Kwast says the “the power of space will change world power forever” and that it’s up to the United States military to leverage that power:

“As a historian, reflecting on the fact that throughout the history of mankind… technology has always changed world power. But the story of rejecting the new and holding and clinging to the paradigms of the past is why no civilization has ever lasted forever, and values are trumped by other values when another civilization figures out a way of finding a competitive advantage. The nature of power, you either have it and your values rule or you do not have it and you must submit. We see that play out again and again in history and it’s playing out now.”

As has been common as of late, Lt. Gen Kwast cites rapidly growing Chinese military and technological advances as the reason why the United States must invest heavily in new space-based technologies. “We can say today we are dominant in space but the trend lines are what you have to look at and they will pass us in the next few years if we do not do something. They will win this race and then they will put roadblocks up to space,” Kwast argues, “because once you get the high ground, that strategic high ground, it’s curtains for anybody trying to get to that high ground behind them.”Kwast claims China is already building a “Navy in space” complete with the space-based equivalents of “battleships and destroyers” which are “able to maneuver and kill and communicate with dominance, and we [the United States] are not.” Kwast’s speech centers on the thesis that the United States needs a Space Force in order to counter Chinese advances and win the competition over the economy of the future and, as an extension, who sets the values of the future:

“Space is the Navy for the 21st century economy, a networked economy that will dominate any linear terrestrial economy in the four engines of growth and dominance that change world power: transportation, information, energy, and manufacturing. […] Whoever gets to the new market sets the values for that market. And we could either have the market with the values of our Constitution […] or we could have the values we see manifest in China.”

As we’ve reported previously, there have been hints of radical new technologies under development by the military and, just as in Kwast’s speech, Chinese advances have been cited as the reason why these technologies are needed. China has been rapidly expanding its presence in space in recent years, placing a lander on the far side of the moon in late 2018 in what some say was a push to scout natural resources with which to develop a permanent lunar manufacturing center. China has also been developing “mothership” aircraft from which to rapidly and unpredictably launch spaceplanes and other payloads into space. The country has also launched several eyebrow-raising satellites in recent years which some analysts claim could be used in anti-satellite warfare. Beyond all this, they have been investing heavily in a traditional space program that includes many facets of manned and unmanned space technologies that rivals, and in some ways, exceeds our own.

Setting the Stage for 21st Century Warfare

Kwast argues that the scientists, engineers, historians, and strategists of today have been pushing the U.S. Congress to more heavily and more rapidly fund the Space Force and associated technologies, but there is still some pushback and confusion as to why these are presently needed. Kwast ultimately makes the case that the United States must be able to bring kinetic power, non-kinetic power, and informational power to the battlefield cheaper and faster than its adversaries in order to ensure strategic advantage in space.

Around the 12:00 mark in the speech, Kwast makes the somewhat bizarre claim that the U.S. currently possesses revolutionary technologies that could render current aerospace capabilities obsolete:

“The technology is on the engineering benches today. But most Americans and most members of Congress have not had time to really look deeply at what is going on here. But I’ve had the benefit of 33 years of studying and becoming friends with these scientists. This technology can be built today with technology that is not developmental to deliver any human being from any place on planet Earth to any other place in less than an hour.”

Kwast’s comment is only one of several curious comments made by military leadership lately and they do seem to claim that we could be on the precipice of a great leap in transportation technology. We also don’t know exactly where he is coming from on all this as it is not necessarily the direct wheelhouse of someone who was running the Air Force’s training portfolio, although it does have overlaps. Whether or not the revolutionary aerospace technologies Kwast mentions have actually been developed is one thing, but Kwast’s lecture, his recent op-eds, and his supporters make it clear that there are many within the U.S. military and analyst community who have felt that there is a great need to boost investment in American space technologies and the U.S. military’s presence in space. That vision is certainly taking root across the Defense Department.

Is all this setting the stage for a new space race that will benefit mankind by furthering scientific and technological development, or is it ushering in the conditions for the first great space war? Only time will tell, but according to Kwast, the technologies needed to win that war may be more science fact than fiction.

Secret NRO Space Stations to be Revealed in Limited Disclosure Plan

The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) controls cloaked space stations in near Earth orbit that use technologies as much as 50 years ahead of what is found on the International Space Station, according to secret space program whistleblower, Corey Goode. There are plans to publicly announce the existence of these large orbiting space stations as part of limited disclosure scenario to hide the existence of even more advanced space programs that Goode and other whistleblowers claim to have directly participated in.

In the most recent episode of Cosmic Disclosure, Goode reveals what he learned about the NRO’s involvement in running classified space stations that conduct surveillance of both the Earth and the Solar System.

The NRO was recently in the news with its declassification of its involvement in an attempt to set up a manned space station for espionage purposes in 1963. The Manned Orbiting Laboratory, which was to use a Gemini space capsule and a secret corps of military astronauts, would have housed NRO spying equipment.

The U.S. Air Force (USAF) was ostensibly in charge of the Manned Orbiting Laboratory program, but it was really run by the NRO which had been officially created in September 1961 due to an unsuccessful USAF satellite program. From its inception, the NRO’s purpose was to conduct high altitude and near Earth orbit surveillance. The USAF/NRO claimed that the Manned Orbiting Laboratory was cancelled in 1969 because unmanned satellites were far cheaper.

In contrast, the Soviet Union decided to merge plans for military space stations dedicated to espionage with its civilian space program. It placed the first manned station in space with Salyut 1 in 1971. The U.S. would follow soon after with Skylab in 1973; a civilian NASA program, which officially was the first manned U.S. space station according to conventional historians. 

Skylab ran until 1979 and was dedicated to scientific research. The world was left believing that the NRO and U.S. military relied solely on spy satellites for conducting surveillance from near Earth orbit.

The U.S. Space Shuttle program began in 1981, and conducted a variety of low Earth orbit missions such as placing satellites in space. From 1979, up until the arrival of the first U.S. astronauts at the International Space Station in 2000, the U.S. did not have a manned station in space according to the official public record. Yet, a passage in the diaries of President Ronald Reagan indicated that there was indeed a permanent U.S. presence in near Earth orbit.

the-reagan-diariesOn June 11, 1985, Reagan wrote:

Lunch with 5 top space scientists. It was fascinating. Space truly is the last frontier and some of the developments there in astronomy etc. are like science fiction, except they are real. I learned that our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people [p.334].

NASA’s Space Shuttle program at the time held a maximum of eleven people per shuttle, and only five were built for space flight. Even if all five took off fully loaded, it would be impossible to place and maintain 300 astronauts in orbit. Reagan had publicly revealed that the U.S. had a secret fleet of military spacecraft that could send up to 300 people to one or more secret space stations in near Earth orbit.

Reagan’s admission is striking evidence that the NRO and USAF had secretly gone ahead in building permanent manned platforms in space that could conduct intelligence gathering and other military tasks. While the public was notified about the cancellation of the Manned Orbiting Laboratory in 1969, it was not informed that the NRO and USAF had secretly gone ahead with plans for a replacement program.

The NRO is formally part of the Department of Defense, and has been traditionally directed by the Under Secretary of the USAF. In 1982, the USAF Space Command was created, and it became the new institutional cover for secret space stations built in collaboration with the NRO.

NRO

NRO Program Patch from Trevor Paglen’s, Emblems from the Pentagon’s Black World

Information about the NRO and its surveillance activities in Earth orbit is notoriously sparse. It wasn’t until 1992 that the existence of the NRO itself was even publicly acknowledged. Its association with military spy satellites was initially revealed, but not its association with the aborted Manned Orbiting Laboratory program until the recent declassification.

Goode’s testimony in Cosmic Disclosure sheds much light on what the NRO has been really doing in space. He discussed in some detail the NRO’s role in maintaining manned space platforms in Earth orbit.

In contrast to more classified space programs which Goode and other whistleblowers claim to have worked with that maintain bases on the Moon, Mars, and deep space fleets, the NRO run space program is primarily limited to near Earth orbit missions. Goode said:

There are space stations that are in near-Earth orbit, upper near-Earth orbit, that are a little bit more advanced than the ISS that they’re flying to and from,

Goode insists that personnel involved in the NRO-run space program genuinely believe that it uses the most advanced technologies available to the military industrial complex. He claims that the manned orbital space stations manned by the NRO are effectively a cover program for more highly classified programs that he worked on from 1987 to 2007 that maintain off-world bases and interplanetary fleets.

Goode revealed earlier that the more advanced and highly classified space program called Solar Warden, which maintains interplanetary fleets for solar system wide duties, was set up by the U.S. Navy. In contrast, the less advanced manned orbital spy platforms used by the NRO, were set up by the USAF.

This makes a lot of institutional sense since the USAF is the newest among the U.S. military services. It would be the Navy that would have the institutional history, infrastructure and clout to run the most advanced space program – Solar Warden.

Goode claims that in recent secretive meetings he attended comprising members of a Secret Space Program [SSP] Alliance, there is a plan for the NRO and USAF Space Command to reveal the existence of manned orbital space platforms that are capable of maintaining hundreds in space.

If they were to do some sort of disclosure and say, this is our secret space program, as a way to trick us and show these craft, these space planes and these space stations, yeah. We would think they’re pretty advanced. But they’re probably up to 50 years more advanced in the International Space Station.

The goal of the partial disclosure plan is to distract the public from the more damaging revelations by Goode and other space program whistleblowers about off-planet bases, space fleets, and trade with extraterrestrial races. The public will be told that all UFOs are in fact spacecraft belonging to the NRO and USAF Space Command.

The following is a short Q and A, which I conducted with Goode by email on December 18, which elaborates on the NRO’s role in a limited disclosure initiative:

Q: 1. Has the NRO been designated as the point organization for a limited disclosure initiative by the Cabal/Illuminati/Earth Syndicates? 2. I recall you saying that the lower level military intelligence types walked away from the SSP Alliance. Did that include the NRO and is indicative that they plan to move forward with their own disclosure scenario?

A: Yes, the “Black Op’s Military”/”Intelligence” SSP which is under the control of the NRO, DIA and other agencies that have removed their few representative members from the SSP Alliance.

It is said that their SSP’s vessels, space stations and platforms/bases may become a part of a partial disclosure narrative which may also include more “accidental” images being captured from NASA’s live feed video.

Whichever partial disclosure narrative that is finally negotiated will be spoon fed to the public.

This “pre-disclosure preparation process” was said to already be underway through possible new whistle blowers (that are currently being “prepped”) as well as mass media (more MSM News stories, Movies, TV Series, Commercials, Video Games etc…) that will mirror more and more of the “Ufology Lore” most of us are familiar with.

If Goode is correct, secret space stations controlled by the USAF Space Command and the NRO are likely to soon be revealed to the world in a partial disclosure initiative. Such an announcement will predictably shock mainstream media and the scientific community over the advanced space technologies secretly used for decades.

It is important to keep in mind, however, that such a disclosure is designed to hide the existence of even more highly classified space programs. These more advanced programs, which date back as far as the Second World War era, have fleets of interstellar space craft and conduct extensive diplomatic relations and trade with extraterrestrial civilizations.
