The Story of Otis T. Carr – The Man Who Invented An ‘Anti-Gravity’ Vehicle In The 1950s

• A recent investigation conducted by a Michigan State University professor and a former secretary from the Department of Housing and Development, along with a team of Ph.D students, tracked down approximately $21 trillion that went missing and unaccounted for from the Department of Defense and the Department of Housing and Development. They discovered that the money was diverted to fund government black budget projects, off the books, with no Congressional oversight.  This black budget world has existed for many years.

• Take the subject of ‘anti-gravity’. This is a field full of reputable scientists and scholars, and real-world examples that have come not only from hard evidence but from extremely credible witness testimony. This isn’t the stuff of conspiracy theories or “fringe” science. But it is ‘black budget’. The technology developed under these programs could change the world, but instead it’s only used within the military-industrial complex for self-serving purposes.

• Efficient energy-generating devices that could eliminate the use of oil, or any other modern day fuel source for that matter, have been subjected to patent suppression. Any civilian who invents technology that rivals the black budget world is subjected to harassment and great difficulty in getting their inventions out to the public. That’s because these technologies have been ‘classified’, for if they were made public it would change everything, and would severely threaten the tremendous amount of power and control the global elite has over the human population.

• In 1971, patents for solar photovoltaic generators were subject to review and possible restriction if the photovoltaics were more than 20% efficient. Why would higher energy efficiencies be a “national security threat?” We’re talking about the suppression of solar technology that goes far beyond even the best commercial panels available today. Said former NASA astronaut Brian O’Leary about ‘free energy’ devices, “If these technologies were to be set free worldwide, the change would be profound, it would be applicable everywhere. These technologies are absolutely the most important thing that has happened in the history of the world”

• In the 1950s, there was a lot of media attention focused on the wave of UFO sightings, crashed saucers and aliens that had been recovered. It is very likely that the government or the military industrial complex had obtained saucer technology by this time. A document in the CIA online reading room describes how the German aeronautical engineer, George Klein, had been developing ‘flying saucers’ from 1941 to 1945. The document states: “The “flying saucer” reached an altitude of 12,400 meters within 3 minutes and a speed of 2,200 kilometers per hour. Klein emphasized that in accordance with German plans, the speed of these “saucers” would reach 4,000 kilometers per hour.”

• Otis T. Carr (pictured above) had similar claims. A protégé of Nikola Tesla, Carr and his team had constructed a number of fully functional flying saucers in the 1950s. He provided numerous public demonstrations and amassed millions of dollars from extremely wealthy people to further develop flying saucer technology. Carr’s goal was to fly to the moon in his “circular foil spacecraft” on December 7th, 1959. The craft would be propelled by an ‘artificial gravitic field’ and required no fuel. It would be powered by an ‘Utron electric accumulator’ – a sort of self-charging battery – utilizing the Sun’s electromagnetism. Carr claimed that a trip to the moon would only take a few hours.

• In the late 1950’s, Carr’s company, OTC Enterprises, Inc., published a statement in the Baltimore Enterprise newspaper that they were ready to build a flying saucer that was capable of travel outside of the Earth’s atmosphere, and were looking for $20 million in funding. Shortly thereafter, Carr’s laboratory was forcibly shut down. Claiming that Carr’s project would ‘destroy the monetary system of the United States’, federal agents confiscated his equipment and all documentation. Carr was heavily criticized, ridiculed, and made a fool of by the press. In January 1961, the Attorney General of New York, Louis J. Lefkowitz, stated that Carr had swindled investors out of $50,000. Later that year, True Magazine labelled Carr a “hoaxer.” By then, his laboratory had been destroyed and Carr’s group of engineers had been ordered to disband and cease contact with one another.

• It is clear that this was a coordinated government effort to shut Carr down. Such advanced scientific developments are reserved only for the black budget world. Carr was convicted and denied an appeal for his ‘crime’. He could not afford to pay the fine and served part of a 14-year jail term. After that little is known about what became of either Carr himself or the craft, but they never flew again. Carr is reported to have suffered from ill-health, a broken man. He passed away in Gardnerville, Nevada, in 2005.

• The global elite has always demonstrated their supremacy by ridiculing concepts that they don’t want made public. There are multiple technological developments that have been completely hushed up, for “national security purposes.” Still, anti-gravity technology has been around for a long time. Professor Theodore Lodre of the University of New Hampshire has studied the development of anti-gravity research in the United States and notes that “research activity seemed to disappear by the mid-1950s.” However, recently reported scientific findings and witness testimonies “show us that this (anti-gravity) research and technology is alive and well and very advanced.”

• On November 1, 2005, Patent #6,960,975 was granted to Boris Volfson of Huntington, Indiana. It describes a space vehicle propelled by a superconducting shield, which alters the curvature of space-time outside the craft in a way that counteracts gravity. The device builds on a claim by Russian physicist Eugene Podkletnov that superconductors can shield the effects of gravity.

• In 2016, the US Navy filed a patent for a hybrid craft “using an inertial mass reduction device”, that was invented by Salvatore Cezar Pais. The hybrid craft was actually approved in 2018. In January 2019, Pais presented a paper on a “Room Temperature Superconducting System for Use on a Hybrid Aerospace Undersea Craft” that would ostensibly power this hybrid craft. In the paper, Pais writes that “the achievement of room temperature superconductivity represents a highly disruptive technology, capable of a total paradigm change in Science and Technology.”

 

It’s astonishing to me how the topic of anti-gravity is still be placed in the “conspiracy theory” realm. This isn’t the stuff of conspiracy theories or “fringe” science, it’s a field full of reputable scientists and scholars, and real-world examples that have come not only from hard evidence but from extremely credible witness testimony as well.  One thing is for certain when talking about such topics: one must delve into the black budget world.

Take, for example, a recent investigation conducted by a Michigan State University professor and a former secretary from the Department of Housing and Development. Together, with a team of Ph.D students, they uncovered approximately $21 trillion that went missing and unaccounted for from the Department of Defense as well as the Department of Housing and Development. Why is this relevant? Because they discovered that the money was going to fund black budget, off the books programs that require no oversight from Congress.  This black budget world has been in operation for many years. You can read more about it here and here in two articles I’ve previously written on the subject.

Breakaway Civilization

The black budget world encompasses a separate civilization (Richard Dolan, “Breakaway Civilization”) that has used tremendous amounts of resources in all areas, from science to archaeology, to move itself far ahead of the mainstream world technologically. How many people does it employ? Who is operating it? Many of these questions remain unknown, but if you follow the money it will give you perhaps somewhat of an idea.

Any civilian who invents technology that rivals the black budget world has always been subjected to harassment, and has difficulty getting their innovations or inventions out to the public. That’s because these technologies have been ‘classified’, for if they were made public it would change everything, severely threatening the tremendous amount of power and control the global elite has over the human population.

The technology that’s been developed within these programs could change the world, but instead it’s used within the military-industrial complex for self-serving purposes, or so it seems. Efficient energy-generating devices that could eliminate the use of oil, or any other modern day fuel source for that matter, have been subjected to patent suppression.

Suppressed Technology List From 1971

For example, the previous list regarding technology suppressed was obtained by researcher Michael Ravnitzky in 1971. Most of the technology listed seems to be related to various military applications. You can view that list here. As Steven Aftergood from the Federation of American Scientists reports: “The 1971 list indicates that patents for solar photovoltaic generators were subject to review and possible restriction if the photovoltaics were more than 20% efficient. Energy conversion systems were likewise subject to review and possible restriction if they offered conversion efficiencies in “excess of 70-80%.”

Why would higher energy efficiencies be a “national security threat?” If this is true, we are talking about solar technology that goes far beyond the best commercial panels available today, which usually can’t even generate 20 percent efficiency.

“These concepts have been proven in hundreds of laboratories throughout the world and yet they have not really seen the light of day. If these technologies were to be set free worldwide, the change would be profound, it would be applicable everywhere. These technologies are absolutely the most important thing that has happened in the history of the world”  – Brian O’Leary, Former Nasa Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor, speaking about over-unity energy, or ‘free’ energy.

Are US Aircraft Carriers secretly protected by Electromagnetic “Tesla” Shields?

In January 2017, all U.S. aircraft carriers were recalled to their home ports for unknown upgrades. There has been much speculation about what the carriers had been secretly equipped with given the growing threats posed by hypersonic cruise missiles against which the carriers appeared defenseless. The 2018 release of a Navy patent provides a compelling answer to what had happened during the recall. The carriers were secretly equipped with powerful electromagnetic “Tesla” shields that could neutralize all hypersonic and ballistic missile threats.

In January 2017, several news reports appeared describing the recall of all US aircraft carriers to home ports and how for the first time none were actively serving anywhere in the world. On December 30, 2016, a Fox News report explained:

For the next week, not only will there be no U.S. Navy aircraft carrier in the Middle East, but there will be no American aircraft carriers deployed at sea anywhere else in the world, despite a host of worldwide threats facing the United States… the absence of a deployed U.S. Navy aircraft carrier, long seen as a symbol of American power projection, is noteworthy. It is believed to be the first time since World War II that at least one U.S. aircraft carrier has not been deployed.

When the Navy was questioned by Fox News about the recall of all its aircraft carriers in the Middle East, a Navy spokesperson said:

“We are not going to discuss the timing of operational movements of carrier strike groups into and out of the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility,” said Capt. Terry Shannon, a U.S. Naval Forces Central Command spokesman, in a statement to Fox News. Centcom is tasked with control over all U.S. forces in the Middle East and Afghanistan.

The lack of explanation for the recall led to much speculation including some concluding that the recall was done to set up the US for a major false flag attack:

In what can only be described as a disproportionate appropriation of U.S. Navy assets, a blatant breach of standard protocol, and a possible set up for a false flag operation — the entire U.S. Navy aircraft carrier group, 10 active carriers, have returned to port and are now all sitting ducks.

By the end of January 2017, the Navy began redeploying its aircraft carriers and the recall was quickly forgotten. In order to understand why the aircraft carriers were recalled and what they may have been upgraded with, we need to consider the growing threat posed by cruise missiles capable of hypersonic speeds.

I first wrote about cruise missiles developed by Russia and China and sold to countries like Iran that could threaten aircraft carrier battle groups back in November 19, 2007. In an article titled: “The Neoconservative Agenda to Sacrifice the Fifth Fleet – The New Pearl Harbor,” I explained:

Iran has sufficient quantities of cruise missiles to destroy much or all of the Fifth Fleet which is within range of Iran’s mobile missile launchers strategically located along its mountainous terrain overlooking the Persian Gulf. The Bush administration is deliberately downplaying the vulnerability of the Fifth Fleet to Iran’s advanced missile technology which has been purchased from Russia and China since the late 1990’s. The most sophisticated of Iran’s cruise missiles are the ‘Sunburn’ and ‘Yakhonts’. These are missiles against which U.S. military experts conclude modern warships have no effective defense.

I further described the capabilities of the cruise missiles sold to Iran as follows:

The SS-N-22 or ‘Sunburn” has a speed of Mach 2.5 or 1500 miles an hour, uses stealth technology and has a range up to 130 miles. It contains a conventional warhead of 750 lbs that can destroy most ships. Of even greater concern is Russia’s SSN-X-26 or ‘Yakhonts’ cruise missile which has a range of 185 miles which makes all US Navy ships in the Persian Gulf vulnerable to attack. More importantly, the Yakhonts has been specifically developed for use against Carrier groups and has been sold by Russia on the international arms trade.

Over the subsequent decade, cruise missile payloads and speeds have increased to the extent that Russia has now developed missiles that can travel over five times the speed of sound. At his February 20, 2019 State of the Nation address, President Vladimir Putin public announced the existence of the first hypersonic cruise missiles, which the Pentagon determined had been under development and testing since 2015:

 “This is a hypersonic missile called Tsirkon. It will have the speed of Mach 9, it has a range of 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) and can hit navy or land targets.”

In December, CNBC learned that a U.S. Intelligence report had highlighted testing of the Tsirkon hypersonic system, noting that five tests had been carried out by the Russian military since 2015.

Putin has previously described Russia’s hypersonic prowess as “invincible” and accused “those who have fueled the arms race over the last 15 years” of failing to contain Russia.

China is not far beyond Russia in developing cruise missiles capable of hypersonic speeds, and currently has a number of hypersonic ballistic missiles that can be deployed against aircraft carriers. On January 2019, Elizabeth Shim from UPI reported:

China plans to deploy midrange ballistic missiles capable of destroying U.S. aircraft carriers by 2020, according to multiple state media reports.

China Times and others reported Tuesday the Dongfeng-17 is a midrange rocket that could be used to sink an entire U.S. aircraft carrier, if it is fired eight times.

The threat posed by hypersonic cruise and ballistic missiles to aircraft carriers and their support ships is well understood by senior Navy leaders and researchers. According to a March 6, 2018 news story published in The Examiner:

The era of the American aircraft carrier as the premier embodiment of military might could be ending unless the U.S. develops defenses for the next generation of highly maneuverable, super-fast hypersonic weapons under development by Russia and China, the Pentagon’s top weapons researcher said Tuesday.

Michael Griffin, undersecretary of defense for research and engineering, said China is spending billions to develop a non-nuclear version of the weapons that could render U.S. aircraft carriers vulnerable to attack.

Despite the threat posed by increasingly sophisticated and powerful hypersonic missile systems under development by major geopolitical rivals, the US Navy has nevertheless gone ahead with building and deploying a new generation of aircraft carriers beginning with the USS Gerald Ford, which is scheduled to formally begin active service in 2022.

This brings us back to the question of why did the US Navy recall all its aircraft carriers in early 2017, and forge ahead with plans to build the larger and more expensive Ford-class carriers?

For an answer, we need to review a 2018 patent awarded to a Navy scientist, Salvatore Cezar Pai, which is titled: “The High Energy Electromagnetic Field Generator” (HEEMFG). In a previous article, I briefly described his patent as an electromagnetic shield. The patent’s summary describes one of the goals of the HEEMFG is to protect the Earth from potential asteroid impacts:

It is a feature of the present invention to provide a method and apparatus for deflecting or destroying a large asteroid and preventing a possible collision with earth. The present invention may also deflect or destroy any other type of object.

It is the HEEMFG’s ability to “deflect or destroy” fast traveling objects which directly pertains the question of why the Navy recalled all its aircraft carriers and is moving ahead with building more Ford-class carriers:

It is a feature of the present invention to provide a method and apparatus for generating an impenetrable defensive shield to Sea and Land as well as Space-based military and civilian assets, protecting these assets from such threats as Anti-Ship Ballistic Missiles, Radar Evading Cruise Missiles, Top Attack for Main Battle Tanks (land and sea based systems), as well as counteracting the effects of solar-induced Coronal Mass Ejections or defending critical military satellites in an ASAT role (space based system). [Source]

The development of an impenetrable electromagnetic shield to defend a target from fast traveling objects such as asteroids and missiles is very similar to ideas first proposed by the Serbian inventor Nikola Tesla back in the 1930’s, Tesla proposed an electromagnetic shield based on scalar wave principle which has been explained as follows:

Scalar Waves can be warped into a dome around objects, such as cities or houses… Such a Scalar Wave force field is generally known as a Tesla Shield, and it would be analogous to the “shields” referred to in the popular “Star Trek” series. Tesla Shields have a definite defensive application, and could not in any way be used for offensive purposes (although a platoon of soldiers charging into a Tesla Shield would be instantly disintegrated). The only defense from a blast of a Scalar Wave Howitzer would be a Tesla Shield.

The scientist behind the HEEMFG is no rogue inventor but works at the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) on advanced technology concepts. On two occasions, Dr. James Sheehy, the Chief Technology Officer of the Naval Aviation Enterprise, a US Navy affiliated organization, has intervened on behalf of Dr. Pais’ patent applications deeming them “operable” to skeptical patent examiners.

Brett Tingley, writing for The Drive, has given detailed commentaries on Pais’ patents, and has speculated about why the Navy wanted to make public what appeared to be technologies that would be highly classified if they worked. He speculated that the patent applications may be disinformation intended to deceive China and Russia:

[I]t’s certainly possible that these patents are part of some ongoing information campaign designed to make America’s competitors question what types of black budget research is currently underway at NAWCAD and other research organizations. With so many revolutionary new aerospace technologies on the brink of deployment, perhaps this is an attempt to essentially “weaponize” patents and sow doubt among our adversaries and even inject confusion among the American populous.

An alternative explanation offered by Tingley is that the patents are feasible and the Navy is seriously contemplating developing them based on UFO sightings such as the 2004 Tic Tac incident tracked by Navy pilots:

[M]aybe this is the Pentagon’s grasping attempt to try to make sense of and emulate mysterious and seemingly highly advanced craft that are supposedly being increasingly observed near its own aircraft, vessels, and installations. Maybe the Chinese competition claim is just a placeholder for the unknown.

There is yet another, even more compelling, explanation that Tingley did not consider. The patents are based on technologies that have already been successfully developed by the Navy in a classified program to protect current and future aircraft carriers from hypersonic weapons. After all, the Navy has a long track record in studying electromagnetic means for protecting its ships as evidenced by the 1943 Philadelphia Experiment.

Even more intriguing is recent insider and documentary evidence that the Navy has developed a secret space program that deploys kilometer long spacecraft that would almost certainly have needed such electromagnetic protection from space debris and asteroids encountered during deep space travel. It’s plausible that Tesla shields that have long been used on the Navy’s secret space program which were deployed in the early 1980’s, and this technology has recently been made available for the Navy’s conventional aircraft carriers given recent advances in hypersonic weapons development.

If Tesla shields have already been developed in a highly classified Navy space program, then it is reasonable to conclude that the HEEMG patent is based on electromagnetic shield concepts that Drs. Pais and Sheehy have been officially briefed about. The existence of Tesla shield technology provides a cogent explanation for why all aircraft carriers were mysteriously recalled in January 2017, the secret upgrades they received, and why Ford-class supercarriers are going to be built.

All this leads to the startling conclusion that U.S. Navy can protect all its aircraft carriers from hypersonic cruise and ballistic missiles using electromagnetic Tesla shields. Even more significant is the potential of such electromagnetic shields to protect entire cities and even the Earth as mentioned in the HEEMFG patent. The HEEMFG patent is cogent evidence that we are about to witness a profound military revolution from the development of offensive to defensive weapons systems where civilian populations are protected rather than sacrificed in strategic military planning.

‘Black Knight’ the Alien Satellite Orbiting Earth is Said to Be 13,000 Years Old

by Chris Ford and Daksha Devani                   May 21, 2019                       (theepochtimes.com)

• Is the Black Knight satellite one of several satellites orbiting the Earth from the distant past? Or is it just a thermal blanket lost from the Endeavour space shuttle during the development of International Space Station as the deep state debunkers now claim? As to what this enigmatic black satellite is – what it does and where it came from – to this day, there are no definitive conclusions.  (see 9:14 minute video on the ‘Black Knight’ enigma below)

• Some say that Nikola Tesla discovered the Black Knight satellite when he began receiving strange “timed” signals while he was testing a high-voltage, magnifying transmitter device in 1899. Tesla was shocked by the discovery and deduced that they were coming from extraterrestrials, either from Mars or from elsewhere in outer space.

• Soon after Tesla’s discovery, other inventors such as Guglielmo Marconi reported that Morse code signals sent from transmitters were being sent back to them from an unknown source after a delay of several seconds. The returned signals were dubbed as “long delayed echos,” (LDEs), which some thought were of extraterrestrial origin. Experiments were conducted from 1928 through the 1930’s, which verified the existence but not the explanation of LDEs. To this day, scientists do not have a conclusive explanation for their existence.

• In 1954, both the St. Louis Dispatch and the San Francisco Examiner reported that several of these strange, artificial satellites had been spotted. Soon there were an untold number of sightings of these mysterious artificial satellites orbiting Earth in very abnormal patterns during the 1950’s and 60’s.

• In March 1960, a huge black object weighing 15 tons was tracked in a “polar orbit” around the Earth, traveling at twice the speed of normal satellites. Neither the U.S. nor the Russians had the capability to put a satellite this heavy into polar orbit at the time. The object was dubbed “Black Knight” after a rocket developed by the British in the 1950’s.

• When the Black Knight satellite made front page headlines in numerous newspapers, the Pentagon stepped in and stated that the objects were merely asteroids. But many did not buy this explanation, believing them to be of either Russian or alien origin.

• In 1972, science writer and astronomer Duncan Lunan deciphered a code from the previously documented LDEs which revealed an extraterrestrial message: “Start here. Our home is epsilon bootis. Which is a double star. We live on the 6th planet of 7–Check that, 6th of 7 – Counting outwards from the sun, which is the larger of the two. Our planet has one moon, our 4th planet has three, our 1st and 3rd planets each have one. Our probe is in the orbit of your moon. This updates the position of Arcturus shown on our maps.”

• Lunan charted the LDE signals and discovered that they formed a pattern, which matched the Epsilon Boötis Constellation as it had looked 13,000 years ago. Based on this, he surmised that the Black Knight probe was at least 13,000 years old.

• After the 1970’s the world lost interest in the Black Knight until 1998 when high-resolution images of the Black Knight satellite were captured by astronauts from the Space Shuttle Endeavour while in space (see image above), and public interest was rekindled. Astronomers began tracking these satellites (reports suggested there were several), which were said to appear and disappear, sometimes for years at a time, before reappearing again. The objects were also reported to change directions, making 90 or 180 degree turns while in mid-flight.

• The director of the Adler Planetarium, Robert L. Johnson, said: “The object doesn’t even have the decency to maintain a regular schedule, like any other heavenly or man-made object … we don’t know when to watch for it.” 

 

For more than a century, there have been signals and sightings of an “alien” satellite orbiting our planet. In 1998, for the first time ever, high-resolution images of this “non-terrestrial” satellite were captured by astronauts from the Space Shuttle Endeavour while in space. This inexplicable satellite is known to us only as “the Black Knight.”

From the famous inventor Nikola Tesla’s early discovery of strange signals coming from outer space, to the untold number of sightings of mysterious artificial satellites during the 1950s and 60s, evidence suggests that there are one or more alien satellites orbiting Earth in very abnormal patterns.

This satellite was dubbed “the Black Knight” after a rocket developed by the British in the 1950s.

After the Pentagon dismissed the object as an “asteroid,” people eventually began to believe that’s what it was … that is, until it was caught on camera in the late 90s.

When visual evidence from the Space Shuttle Endeavour finally captured images of what was believed to be the Black Knight in 1998, public interest on the topic was rekindled, along with interest in stories from decades past, of Tesla’s discovery, strange signals from space, countless sightings, and decoded messages, which made the object the stuff of legend throughout the 20th century.

As to what this enigmatic black satellite is—what it does and where it came from—to this day, there are no definitive conclusions. Some say that Nikola Tesla discovered it when he began receiving strange “timed” signals while he was testing a high-voltage, magnifying transmitter device in 1899.

Tesla was shocked by the discovery and deduced that they were coming from extraterrestrials, either from Mars or from elsewhere in outer space.

Some speculate that Tesla had been in contact with aliens, who assisted him in creating his electrical inventions, and that he was receiving ideas through telepathic communications sent to him from extraterrestrials, which helped him realize groundbreaking new technology.

Soon, other inventors such as Guglielmo Marconi started reporting similar strange phenomena. They found that Morse code signals sent from their transmitters were being sent back to them from an unknown source after an unusual delay of several seconds. The returned signals were dubbed as “long delayed echos,” (LDEs), which some thought were of extraterrestrial origin.

The occurrence of these unexplained signals caused a commotion in the press, and many experiments were conducted from 1928 through the 1930s, which verified the existence of LDEs though could not explain them. To this day, scientists do not have a conclusive explanation for their existence.
