In our previous article, we discussed Nikola Tesla and his doomed bid to create the first World Wide Web, over 100 years ago. Tesla was undoubtedly one of the greatest minds to have ever existed and his many inventions, including the alternating current (AC) induction motor, helped create the modern world as we know it. However, his achievements far exceed what has been made public. Indeed, what we know is merely the tip of the iceberg. That, at least, is the assertion of various conspiracy theorists.

Let’s get right to the thick of the matter and deal with one of Teslas’s alleged inventions, squirreled away by the government as it were, being too dangerous to make public, less it fall into unscrupulous hands. We’re not talking here about the Death Ray machine which Tesla built and then, personally dismantled, because he himself judged it to be a power the man-apes were still too savage to wield. No, we’re talking about something far stranger. To whit, the invention of a Tesla-based teleportation and time travel machine.

The masses may assert this potential to be pure nonsense but, then again, isn’t that exactly what the Military-Industrial Complex wants us to believe? Of course, those in the know want to keep it all on the hush hush, for the obvious reasons. But every once in a while, someone comes along and lets the cat out of the bag.

One such person is government whistleblower Andrew D. Basiago who claimed to be working for DARPA on a top-secret teleportation program called Project Pegasus, utilizing “Tesla-based quantum teleportation and time travel in the time-space hologram.” The goal of the project was to surveil the future, using time travel technology for espionage and military purposes. Basiago says he himself was recruited into the program and was often teleported to bases around the country by way of “jump rooms,” and in 1981, on two occasions, was teleported to a secret base on Mars.

According to Basiago, Project Pegasus included a unit made of time-travelers who were referred to as “Chrononauts.” This is not to be mistaken with “Cronuts,” a delicious hybrid between a croissant and the classic donut. These Chrononauts were trained in the use of a device called a “Chronovisor.” What did this machine do? Apparently, the device resembled a TV set which allowed one to see images taking place in the future and in the past.

One wonders what would happen if a Chrononaut, wearing a Chronovisor, ate a Cronut? I’m not sure, but I believe there is the distinct possibility that one’s mind could explode into a billion particles like the Big Bang.

On a side note, isn’t it curious that the Milky Way galaxy is shaped like a donut? Just saying.

Apparently, one piece of information retrieved back in the 1970s by the Chrononauts concerned the coming 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York City. Alas, the group were still unable to thwart the tragic events from occurring. The program allegedly ran from 1968 to 1972 and involved some notable persons including future presidents Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama and others.

Basiago claims that he, Obama and head of DARPA Regina Dugan, were all part of a ten person team taking part in a “Mars training class” at California’s College of the Siskiyous, back in 1980. They trained in the top-secret teleportation “Jump Room” to travel to Mars.

Basiago also noted that Barack Obama, at that time only 19-years old, was going by the name Barry Soetero. During one of their successful missions together to the Red Planet, Obama proclaimed to Basiago, “We’re here.”

There’s a lot to digest here and more than enough to give the average reader indigestion. How much of Basiago’s assertions are true? It’s hard to say and easy enough to dismiss as pure imagination. To begin with, could Tesla have in fact invented a teleportation device?

What we know is that when Tesla died in his room at the New Yorker Hotel in January of 1943, a swarm of agents from the U.S. government’s Office of Alien Property descended on the place and seized all of Tesla’s files. There were said to be 80 trunks worth of files.

Part of the urgency was the fact that World War ll was raging and Tesla had claimed to have invented the Death Ray, a powerful weapon utilizing particle-beam technology. The question is, what had become of Tesla’s files? The matter is shrouded in mystery and fertile ground for conspiracy theories. In 2016, 250 pages of documents from Tesla’s files were declassified under the Freedom of Information Act, with further releases in 2018. Nonetheless, many of the documents remain under wraps.

One person who was privy to all the original documents was an electrical engineer from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) named Dr. John G. Trump. According to declassified documents, three weeks after Tesla died, Trump was called upon by the Feds to evaluate the scientist’s paperwork. Trump’s assessment of Tesla’s files was that they were “primarily of a speculative, philosophical and promotional character” adding they did “not include new sound, workable principles or methods for realizing such results.”

The funny thing here is that Dr. John G. Trump is in fact the uncle of President Donald J. Trump. John Trump was the younger brother of Donald Trump’s father, Fred. He was a noted engineer and was credited with helping in the design of X-ray machines as well as radar research used during World War ll.

You can’t make this stuff up.

Donald Trump had referenced his uncle on various occasions during the 2016 campaign, saying on one occasion, “My uncle used to tell me about nuclear before nuclear was nuclear.”

Turns out, however, not everyone in the military was in agreement with John Trump’s assessment of the Tesla files. Despite the FBI using Trump’s report to dismiss the existence of a viable Death Ray, members of the Air Force were fast working with the particle-beam technology to create their own death ray.

According to Marc Seifer, author of the biography Wizard: The Life & Times of Nikola Tesla, a group was formed at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, which included Brigadier General L.C. Craigee, to incorporate particle-beam technology based on Tesla’s work. This led directly to the development of Ronald Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative, aka “Star Wars” program, during the 1980s. Seifer claims that further innovations are being made from the still classified portions of the Tesla files.

Could some of these innovations include teleportation and time travel? The concept is so mind bending to us that we can only relegate the entire matter to the realm of fiction. But let’s not forget that things we take as common place today, were considered “science fiction” before they were allowed to be made available to the general public. This includes many Tesla related innovations including wireless technology, radio guidance systems and remote controlled robots.
