As many regular readers here know, I've been advancing the idea that there is a hidden system of finance, beyond even that of the black budget, and that it has been used both as a political slush fund to finance covert activities, and that it has been used as a totally off-the-books source of finance for black research projects. In short, I am proposing the existence of a system beyond the "normal" black budget.

With  that in mind, while trolling the internet recently, looking for more information, I came upon a few things that I thought were worth sharing by way of fleshing out the above high-octane speculation  scenario a bit more fully. A number of these things bear upon assumptions being made in the ufology community, and some of them bear directly upon the hypothesis of a hidden system of finance, and some bear upon all at the same time.

Let's begin here, with a short (four minute) video from Russia Today about the size of the U.S. defense budget, and the fact that the Pentagram will not acknowledge where $8,500,000,000,000 has gone since the mid-1990s:


Now, it is entirely possible that the the Pentagram doesn't know where all this money went, at least, partially. And here we have to pause again, to understand why this might be so, and how the structure of the black budget is such that it would be comparatively easy for an entirely independent group to use the very system of security compartmentalization to create, in effect, a breakaway civilization, with hidden sources and avenues of funding, to do "covert research."

The reason is "cost-plus" financing of government defense contracts. What this means is simply that the government bears all costs of research, then tacks on an arbitrary figure for the "profit" of the company conducting contracted research for the military. Profits are built into the system, and thus, it would be a simple matter to hide items in the normal budget. Splitting sensitive projects up into components and parceling them out to various companies means that only those placing the contracts in the first place really know what the final goal of the project may be. All that is required is final assembly of parts(this 3d printing in this context too, folks). It could be feasible to piggyback secret research of one project known only to such a group on the back of another "legitimate" project of the black projects world being done for the government.

We can even perhaps envision how easily it might be accomplished: an officer or scientist with 'clearance' in a given project approaches a component research entity and asks it to "look into" an allied problem, and guarantees the financing, in a "while you're at it" situation. Orders are placed for "parts" and shipped to destinations: purpose unknown. My point here is that compartmentalization would actually be the fertile soil on which a rogue group, or breakaway civilization, could grow. And if one balks at the idea of such a group, it is worth recalling the strange words of Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev after the downing of Francis Gary Powers' U-2: he blamed the act not on Eisenhower nor even on the US military, but precisely upon such a "rogue group."

Cost plus financing, in other words, is the tip of a very large iceberg (and it really isn't even yet into "black budget" territory), and its potentialities and implications for the type of exploitation are immense.

But what about that eight and a half trillion dollars the Pentagram cannot account for? What's going on? It is perhaps relevant that $8.5 trillion would be just about the amount of money represented in the Spanish and Italian bearer bonds scandals (6 and 2 trillion respectively, and some "loose change", which would be the mere "billions" part).

But what happens when, occasionally, an item does appear that shouldn't have appeared?

That will have to wait for tomorrow... see you on the flip side.

    This breakaway civilization is not as farfetched as one might think. I worked with a former CIA-navy liason in california who was well informed on all the equipment the Navy had gotten from the former Nazi germany as he worked with much of it in the navy’s various retrieval endevors in the oceans depths. Gehlens gifts(war prizes) I found to be generous to both sides of the cold war. The large 500 ton waterbased crane used by the German navy to maintain their U-boat forces was delivered to the U.S. after the war had a sister crane that was destroyed in 45. My boss explained to me many details of the crane he had worked on and what was significant about its machinery and design. Later in my travels I ran into the missing sister crane in communist leningrad just across from where the historic Aurora was berthed in 83. I borderded the crane derekbarge when it was berthed on the river wall and began checking her technical layout and found her to be the true sister-crane of the long beach warprize on terminal Island. After I was detained by a russian cop I explained my visit onboard and was informed that the crane was indeed built in 1942 by germany. Small world. My boss had a old friend that he worked with occasionally in central america as a CIA asset and that I worked with when we needed his companies services,Acme riggers down in san diego . Later I learned this friend Buz Sawyer was flying in coke for his business associates in costa rica(CIA’s southern hemishere headquarters) and was in fact one of the biggest suppliers of the 80’s. I heard many stories of Nazi backrounded business associates of theirs and their exploits in south america and south africa, in our business of offshore supplies we’d get the occasional shipments with swatsika’s printed on the machine parts boxes from brazil or south africa and neither my boss nor customs ever thought anything strange about it, even when I would comment on it they’d just grin and laugh a little. This was back in the 70’s so by now I think they’ve long come into various normal business circles and their black money influences us all as it does our governments. If they’ve got advanced spacecraft and killed kennedy, who’s gonna bust’em you? me? Our own presidents Bush and his ol’man are gonna hide behind them in paraquay when the shit hits the fan,whats that tell ya?

    This was a week ago and with the black ops budgets as they are, well, I just don’t know.

    I also find it interesting that the Japanese are talking about placing ‘mirrors’ in space to be redirected to earth for ‘energy production’, so the science is already here.

    I guess what piqued my interest was the biblical verse in Revelations 13:13 (interesting in itself), “That he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.”

    • Enlil's a Dog on January 5, 2014 at 11:38 pm

      Here’s one that has always had my interest, ever since childhood –

      Deuteronomy 30:4 (King James) states –

      “If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee”.

      To me, this scripture implies that heaven is not a spiritual realm but a physical realm? Could it be that this scripture is implying space travel?

      Could it be that a long lost tribe of humanity exists out there somewhere? Could it be that ‘we’ are the lost tribe of humanity, perhaps seperated from the rest of our kind after that big war that Dr Farrell writes of? Could it also mean that when the time is right we will be reunited with the rest of our family as the scripture implies?

      Whichever way we want to interpret it it is a very interesting scripture. What is also interesting is that more modern bibles (non KJV) have tinkered with this scripture removing “outmost parts of heaven” and replacing it with “distant lands” and thereby changing the context of it completely.

    Hard to say about the cost of the chemtrail program. It is a huge pile of money though. On any given day hundreds of military tankers are flying all over the planet spraying vast quantities of aerosol. When Rumsfeld first popped the 2.3 trillion “I dunno” on us the day before 9/11 the chemtrail program was in full swing. It got heavy as soon as Bush obtained the White House. The correlation between the “missing trillions” back then and the serious commencement of the chemtrail program is suspicious.

    There are some who think the project is much too vast be anything other than an ET run thing. That idea has legs. As an orgoniteering sky watcher I have seen tanker planes disappear into thin air. Sure, we have cloaking tech, but the ET’s probably do it much better. The sheer scale of the op is mind blowing.

  4. sjy1969 on January 5, 2014 at 9:10 am

    For the sake of clarity based on a quick calculation from available sources, the $8.5 trillion looks to be the total of US DoD annual budgets from the mid 1990s to present, so I don’t think it’s correct to say that this is the size of the black hole. To see where at least some of this has gone all you need to do is turn on the TV or stand outside a military base!

    The general point holds though that budgets can contain many items such as “Special Programs” where any amount of stuff can be tucked away and as per the article sourced in part 2 of Dr F’s piece, who says these things have to be hidden only in the defence budget?

    I guess one way to look at this would be to go through published defence budgets looking for programmes that were funded one year and suddenly disappear from the budgetary “radar” in following years and start digging from there…

    A personal female friend who is intermittently plugged into the Akashic (I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d ever contemplate this type of ‘new age’ information) mentioned that she ‘saw’ a vast array of interconnected panels in space (possibly reflectors?) and heard a voice confirming that they could ‘burn’ any part of the globe.

    Interestingly most of the supposed chemtrail materials ( strontium, barium etc.) are high temperature superconductors.

    I know it is the wildest of the wild speculations but it is interesting nonetheless.

    • LSM on January 5, 2014 at 5:44 pm

      Hi johny,

      if I recall the Akashic records have to do with the past, not the future- if your female friend may just tend to be right, who does one think would be prepared to clean up the burned-up globe/fried MESS unless they were vaporized by a particle beam weapon?- me thinks neither the global elite nor a breakaway society wants their hands dirtied by dealing with fried cadavers- there’s some other agenda going on here – I don’t have the answer- am not sure any of us does-

    Идея фикс для славян это всегда был захват плодородных земель. Грабительские походы носили второстепенный характер. При захвате новых территорий славянский этнос постепенно ассимилировался с соседними коренными народами переходя от экспансии к защите земель от новых агрессоров. Славянин никогда не отдаст ни пяди своей земли, ничего из своего за так. Любовь к личной и общественной свободе, индивидуализм, собственничество – это основы славянской ментальности.

    что одно у славян точно, так это странная привычка, поносить свое прошлое. Когда изТорию России, пишут Байеры и Шлёцеры, им то куда виднее, каковы были славяне! Они сами только не давно по лесам дикаарями бегали и раз в год а то и в жизнь мылись, придумав для этого духи чтобы не воняло. А сено в замках стелили, чтобы можно после еды сразу посрать сходить было. Нуда, они то про нас славян все знают! Эти “культурные” и “миролюбивые” европейцы!

    Приносили иногда, иногда и пленников убивали чтобы получить удачу на войне. Славяне это варвары и завоеватели – хорошо это или плохо. Это не мирные лесные аборигены как к примеру финно-угорские племена. Добрачный секс у славян был нормой, большая часть славянских обрядов и праздников к сексу имели самое прямое отношение Ивана Купала например. Просто у славян это не считалось блудом.

    $8.5 trillion is just the tip of the iceberg. Seriously, even if this is the US Gubmint/Pentagram, does anyone seriously think that those toilet seats actually cost $500 and those hammers $250? Or that one airplane costs 1/3 of a billion dollars?

    Insanely overpriced military hardware has been funneling untold gazillions into black-ops budget year after year for decades, starting in the 1960s when the scheme was born during the Vietnam war and the SST fiasco, so you can add another couple $trillion alone just from diversions from the Pentagram’s own procurement budget.

    • DownunderET on January 4, 2014 at 5:31 pm

      Hi Basta:

      I’m not a fan of Alex Jones, but his DVD “Wake Up Call” is a revelation of waste in most military exercises. What went on in Iraq will blow your mind. I think its available at Ebay and worth every cent as it not only exposes the waste, but just about every other falsehood the US government has done.

  8. DownunderET on January 4, 2014 at 2:18 pm

    From all this information about the big five sided building, there is no doubt that most people who work there, haven’t a clue what they are doing and where all this loot is going. You cannot tell me that they are all dumb, the people dishing out the money to contractors like Lockheed and SAIC must have a rough idea. I remember one of the witnesses on of the Disclosure Project dvd’s, who said she saw millions of dollars going to SAIC for projects that basically didn’t exist.

    So, somebody knows where it is all going, but if they are members of the Breakaway Civilization, then the KACHING of the cash registers has gone silent.

    Ok Joseph, come clean tomorrow with the good stuff, and I’ll bet it’s a doozie.

    And the fiscal hawks target the poor calling them welfare kings, queens ,brats in other words if your low or no income your a parasite. But if your a filthy rich Ponzi scheme artist your a producer who’s the real parasites. The producers make money the old fashion way larceny and war profiteering and creative accounting.

  10. Frankie Calcutta on January 4, 2014 at 11:32 am

    The question is: how do Russia and China assess the United States’ military preparedness? Have they deducted the 8.5 trillion as well? How much has the Breakaway Civilization broken away? Can we count on any of these black projects to come to the aid of the United States if we were at war with China and/or Russia? Could the rivals of the United States even negotiate a separate treaty with the Breakaways? If the Breakaways are an entirely separate entity from the United States which has siphoned off all this money from the US military budget, wouldn’t this missing 8.5 trillion make the defenses and offensive power of the United States a facade?

    • Frankie Calcutta on January 4, 2014 at 11:37 am

      Would it be possible for a Putin-esque or Napoleon-like politician in the US government to reign in and gain control of the Breakaway Civilization (if he could survive all the assassination attempts– including energy weapons being fired at him from outer space)?

    • Enlil's a Dog on January 4, 2014 at 5:25 pm

      My guess is that they are all in on it together and that the whole cold-war, terrorism, national debt, unemployment thing, you know, basically everything that we all know as ‘our’ reality is just a smoke and mirrors game for something else that’s been going on for ages. I came to this conclusion a long time ago – after I read Richard Dolan and before I heard Dr Farrell say something similar on the Byte Show – good to know great minds think alike 😉

      I do NOT think that this breakaway civilization is solely American based nor solely American controlled. It may well have had its origins in the Pentagram in the early days but not now. If it exists I think probably every government in the world is in on it, at least in some capacity. I don’t believe in all honesty that it would be possible for the American spook networks to keep such a secret from the rest of the world’s intelligence organizations. Other countries maybe smaller but they are not less intelligent!

      • Frankie Calcutta on January 4, 2014 at 7:46 pm

        Enlil’s a Dog,

        It definitely is a mystery. Indeed the Breakaway Civilization’s tentacles must go everywhere. 8.5 trillion dollars, the drug trafficking money, the golden lily plunder, the borrowed bankster money, etc. opens a lot of doors and greases a lot of palms. So do directed energy and weather weapons aimed at you and your city. And then all the NSA blackmail. Maybe even the black projects of Russia have this same all encompassing master? I have surmised that the only way to get closer to unraveling this mystery (until Dr. Farrell’s next book on the subject comes out) is to try to infiltrate the Breakaway Civilization myself. Therefore, I have quit my job as a false flag crisis actor and have embarked on a new career. I intend on becoming an off planet welder. I just get my welding certificate the other day and will soon look for employ that will get my up into space. Probably at one of these start-up space consortiums. My dream is to one day do some welding on the rings of Saturn– whatever that may entail. If there is one way to find out what is going on, it is to get inside Saturn. Not to mention Saturn ring welder has quite a buzz to it. Won’t my old classmates be impressed at my next high school reunion when I tell them what I have been up to?

        • Enlil's a Dog on January 4, 2014 at 11:43 pm

          Place an ad in the national newspapers – I’m sure someone will respond. You never know, someone just might wanna meet you on a park bench 🙂

  11. emlong on January 4, 2014 at 8:44 am

    8.5 trillion sounds about right to cover the vast chemtrail project – thousands of military tankers plying the skies over nearly every part of the planets and millions of tons of aerosolized aluminum and barium. It is the largest project in human history.

    • basta on January 4, 2014 at 4:19 pm

      Chemtrails are run through NATO as they’re all over Europe as well, but you’re definitely right: this is in-your-face obvious. Chemtrails are a global progam on an unprecedentedly massive scale. This is where that money is going; not to some speculative off-planet black ops

      And I’d just add that it’s insane, and it has destabilized the climate. Just look at the extreme weather all over the planet. Which leads to the question, who could be so insane as to do this? Are they even human?

      • LSM on January 5, 2014 at 7:01 am

        “Chemtrails are run through NATO”- wouldn’t doubt this for a second- question is: who at the bottom core controls NATO?- but at the same chemtrailing exists also (if my read sources are correct) in Asia and the rest of the world- if you have info to the contrary please inform- would be appreciated-

        “This is where that money is going; not to some speculative off-planet black ops”- as I just previously stated to emlong I don’t think this huge amount of money could account exclusively for lab experiments developing the contents and delivery of chemtrails; one must not forget the expression “lab rats” which is not exclusively limited to experimental rodents; I have two sister-in-laws who were both “lab rats” in as far as they were both paid a weekly salary (no bonuses) to work in labs researching blood and AIDS- and all lab-rats whether rodents or human are told what to do and ask no questions that could possibly endanger/suddenly terminate their present existence as such-

        “And I’d just add that it’s insane, and it has destabilized the climate. Just look at the extreme weather all over the planet. Which leads to the question, who could be so insane as to do this? Are they even human?”- no kidding- but I think your last sentence/question is an area where most people refuse to go out of fear- they mention it (as you have- but no criticism on my part in regards to the following) but just slough it off and don’t delve into it any farther- much too scary-

        even Peter Levenda has hinted at in his “Sinister Forces” triolgy that there seems to be an unknown, sinister force working in the background- then enter David Icke’s expoundings- but then Icke is an whole other inconclusive chapter…

        • Margaret on January 6, 2014 at 10:58 am

          FYI Larry, there are a couple of new Peter Levenda interviews posted on The Byte Show youtube channel. Always great to hear GeorgeAnn and Peter in conversation! Also, an update from Kevin Annett on youtube titled “A New Year’s Message from ITCCS and Kevin Annett“.
          Re chemtrails, I posted a comment but it is stuck in ‘moderation’ limbo. There is a link to a video about geoengineering which everyone should see and share. Mad scientists and psychopaths are carelessly mucking up the planet. Please check back … Stay well and all the best in the new year …

      • Margaret on January 6, 2014 at 12:49 am

        Dane Wigington’s website GeoEngineeringWatch.org has the best collection of research. Chemtrail spraying is just one aspect of a DARPA-sponsored program called Project Cloverleaf which is global and uses civilian planes during the day and military at night. Various neurotoxic fuel additives are used. Read more on the pages ‘Civilian Aircrafts Are Involved In Clandestine Geoengineering’ and ‘Weekly Weather Update – Man Made Super Storms Now In Progress. Dec. 29, 2013’. There is no natural weather anymore, according to Mr Wigington, and this severe winter has been deliberately engineered for various reasons. On the main page there is a must-see video, The Most Important Topic of Our Time, or you can watch it on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2x6TEeknfo. Whoever and for whatever covert reasons, it IS sinister, out of control, damaging our health, poisoning the planet, and costing billions of dollars with no benefit to show. A Global March Against Chemtrails and Geoengineering is planned for January 25th if you want to get involved! http://www.globalmarchagainstchemtrailsandgeoengineering.com

    • LSM on January 5, 2014 at 6:29 am

      to a certain extent, emlong, I agree with you- but I just don’t think ALL of this money is going to chemtrailing- un-manned drones/craft, etc. spraying us like roaches and the spraying’s contents can’t account for all of these monetary expenditures- question is: WHY are they spraying us like roaches?
