    TESLA KNEW The Secret of the Great Pyramid: Unlimited Free Energy to Power The World

    TESLA KNEW The Secret of the Great Pyramid: Unlimited Free Energy to Power The World

    Nikola Tesla believed that he could harness the energy from inside the earth and transmit that power *wirelessly* around the world.

    His early experiments were successful. But his research mysteriously vanished after his death.

    There is no evidence left of Tesla's wireless power technology.

    Or is there?

    For years we were taught that the Great Pyramid of Giza was a tomb for a king. 

    It wasn't. It had a different purpose.

    Tesla didn't invent wireless power. It's been here for 5,000 years. And probably a lot longer than that.

    Let's find out why.

    JOHN TITOR: Soldier from the Future | Can this time traveler save us from destruction?

    This is our future. The United States of America endures a second civil war, killing millions. Immediately after that, a *World* War begins. Nuclear weapons are used. Billions are killed.

    The aftermath leaves the earth in ruins. Electric grids are down. Food becomes scarce. Disease is rampant. Society breaks down.

    Then, in 2038, all computers go offline. Civilization is set back several hundred years. The world enters a second dark age.

    Only by changing events in our past and present can we avoid this nightmare of a future.

    In 1998, in a small town in Florida, John Titor was born.

    In the year 2036, John, a temporal soldier would be sent back in time. 

    His mission? Save the world.

    The Airforce UFO Cover Up That Drove a Man INSANE | The Paul Bennewitz Story

    Paul Bennewitz lived next to a large airforce base. When he saw colored lights in the sky, he assumed they were experimental aircraft.

    Then he started picking up strange radio signals that seemed to be an alien language.

    He took his findings to the Air Force. Publicly they denied the UFO/alien story.

    He spent several years gathering evidence and reporting it to the authorities.

    Then, he ended up in a mental institution.

    Let's find out why.

    The CIA Assassination of Frank Olson | The Murder that Exposed MK-ULTRA

    The CIA Assassination of Frank Olson | The Murder that Exposed MK-ULTRA

    November 28th, 1953. New York City. 

    At 2:30 AM the body hit the sidewalk. A few seconds later, a shower of glass.

    The doorman of the Statler Hotel yelled to the lobby that there was a jumper.

    The night manager rushed out and saw him. A man, about 40 years old, lying on the pavement. He was on his back, wearing only his underwear and blood started to pool around him.

    13 stories up, a single window was open; its curtain flapping through broken glass.

    The night manager knelt beside the man, whose eyes were open and was somehow still alive. He desperately tried to speak but was choking on blood and couldn't be understood. After a minute or two of trying to communicate, the man took a final deep breath and was gone.

    Nobody knows for sure what he was trying to say before he died.

    But one thing is for certain, it was something about the CIA.

    The Montauk Project: The Truth is Darker Than You Think

    In 1943, the USS Eldridge was made invisible and teleported from Philadelphia to Virginia. This event was known as the Philadelphia Experiment.

    When the Eldridge reappeared, some crew materialized in walls and bulkheads. They died in agony.

    But two sailors didn't reappear at all. The two men, who happened to be brothers, were presumed dead or lost.

    They weren't dead. 

    They traveled 40 years into the future; in a secret military base on the East end of Long Island.

    They became unwitting participants of The Montauk Project.
