The Secret Mars Colony


Can the United States military-industrial establishment really keep a secret?  Consider this…

“In 1943 the neutral press printed some strange news about an apocalyptic experimental American bomb that had destroyed every living thing on a small island during its first test.  The facts as reported were not true, but the rumors were based on concrete data, or on the first rare leaks that were coming out concerning the frenzied preparation of the super-secret atomic center at Oak Ridge.  The news, then, was in advance of the appearance of the new bomb: A kind of science fiction before the proper time.

Two years later vague references to unknown, large scale phenomena (“a deafening roar and a column of smoke”) that had been noted in the desert region of New Mexico appeared in some Texas and Arizona newspapers.  Mass hallucination or a meteor, the military authorities declared brusquely.  Then it was learned that precisely at 5:38 AM on July 16, 1945, under the code name “Trinity”, the first American atomic bomb had been detonated on the top of a high steel tower a dozen or so miles from the air base of Alamogordo.  “We learned of the existence of the A-bomb at the same time the Japanese did!” the surprised citizens of the United States exclaimed.  And it was perfectly true!”

[From Renato Vesco’s book, “Intercept UFO”]

These days rumors abound that this same military-industrial conglomerate has established bases on Mars. Such claims sound like preposterous “urban-legend” nonsense, right? But just like the atomic bomb in 1945, if the defense engineers of those days could build it, would they? Of course they did, and in complete secrecy. Now, decades later here in the dawn of the 21st century, if defense engineers could secretly launch men to Mars, would they? Well, let’s examine the evidence and you decide the answer for yourself…


In 2004, filmmaker Kerry Conran introduced an imaginative action thriller called “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow”. This movie’s fanciful plot reveals the crazed dream of a mad German scientist to create his own utopian future called “The World of Tomorrow”. His twisted plan involved launching a giant rocket, filled with all species of animals as well as engineered human genomes; the spawn a new race of super-humans, into space. Upon reaching 100 kilometers altitude, the rocket was set to ignite the atmosphere and incinerate the Earth! 

Hollywood fiction, of course, reminiscent of James Bond’s “Moonraker”—a movie plot where another mad villain planned to destroy the Earth while crafting his own perfect civilization out in space.

Isn’t it strange how sometimes life mimics art…?


Along with the moon and stars, the red planet Mars has been an enticing source of celestial fascination for as long as man has studied the night skies…

The Romans revered Mars as the god of war. Astrologically, Mars is associated with confidence and self-assertion, aggression, sexuality, strength, and ambition. But what is the real truth about the fourth planet orbiting our sun? What secrets does our neighboring planet wait to reveal?

By the 19th century, telescope resolution was advanced enough to reveal surface features of the red planet. Italian astronomer, Giovanni Schiaparelli claimed seeing the planet lined with groves or channels which he mapped. These strange lines became labeled “canals” suggesting a vast irrigation system on Mars which implied that intelligent creatures lived there.

Observations by American astronomer, Percival Lowell in 1901, fueled further speculation that a Martian civilization had engineered a complex system of canals to distribute water across its arid, barren surface.

Such notions inspired the writings of H.G. Wells and his classic tale which envisioned aggressive Martians seeking to escape their dying planet by invading Earth. This Wells novel has made an indelible impression on our modern culture, first as a notorious radio program in 1938 when Orson Welles triggered a public panic by presenting the fictional dramatization as a“live” news broadcast. Then later the tale was again refurbished as two major Hollywood movies.

And over the years Mars has remained a popular media subject. Walt Disney advanced theories about manned exploration of Mars back in the 50’s. In 1990, Arnold Schwarznegger played a Martian colonist with amnesia in “Total Recall”. And “Mission to Mars” told the plight of astronauts marooned on the red planet.

Most recently in 2012, Edgar Rice Burrough’s 1917 science fiction classic, “John Carter and the Princess of Mars” finally made its grand Hollywood debut.      

But the romantic ideas of an inhabited Mars have given way to more sophisticated scientific analysis. Since the early 1960’s numerous unmanned probes launched by both American and Soviet space agencies have revealed the red planet to be a desolate, lifeless rock. Its surface temperature is much lower than that of Earth--scarcely rising above the freezing point of water. Mars may have had surface water in ancient times, but evidence suggests that some major cosmic catastrophe left the planet without an atmosphere capable of sustaining life. The asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter is theorized to be the remains of a planet that was destroyed millions of years ago. The scarred Martian surface and diminished atmosphere may be the result of that disaster.

NASA engineers have recently speculated about the possibility of “terra-forming” Mars to restore a more hospitable atmosphere to the planet by releasing moisture trapped as permafrost across the planet’s surface.

          The most recent robotic venture to Mars was NASA’s “Mars Exploration Rover” which landed successfully in 2004. Unfortunately, after six years of service, the Rover’s survey came to a halt when its wheels became trapped in sand. Communication from Rover finally failed altogether in March of 2010.

And yet planet Mars still offers curious anomalies that challenge our understanding. In 1976, NASA’s “Viking I” orbiter, making a photographic survey of the Cydonia Mesa, captured a unique formation that has since been labeled “The Face on Mars”. Is it just a random trick of light and shadow, or the remnant of a structure from some lost civilization that once flourished on the Martian surface?  As well, strange translucent ‘tubes’ have been captured in the NASA survey photographs.  Are they some bizarre natural formations or also tantalizing remains of intelligently engineered structures?

In January 2008, the Mars Rover photographed yet another strange ‘artifact’ that strongly suggests the “sculpture” of a person in a sitting or kneeling position among the Martian rocks. It seems the more we learn about our companion planet, the more mysterious it becomes!

These mysteries may finally be dispelled in the near future. In a major policy speech at Kennedy Space Center on April 15, 2010, President Barack Obama predicted a manned Mars mission to orbit the planet by the mid-2030’s, followed by a landing…

"By the mid-2030's, I believe we can send humans to orbit Mars and return them safely to Earth," and a landing on Mars will follow, and I expect to be around to see it."

Imagine the high drama when American astronauts ultimately set foot on Mars for the first time in 2035! But will they actually be the first? Or will they be shocked to discover that Mars has been home to humans from Earth for at least 70 years!?


In 2010 on “Exopolitics Radio” with host Alfred Lambremont Webre, incredible revelations about planet Mars were disclosed…

Mr. Andrew Basiago, a Cambridge-educated lawyer who practices law in Washington State, and Ms. Laura Eisenhower, the great-granddaughter of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, have recently come forward with astounding claims that a secret Mars base, funded by Black-Budget military and intelligence sources, has been established as a survival colony in the event that solar flares, nuclear war or some other catastrophe ends human life on Earth.

          On “Exopolitics Radio”, Laura Eisenhower, exposed a covert intelligence operation in 2006 to infiltrate her personal life and recruit her for a secret Mars colony project. As well, Andrew Basiago revealed that twice in 1981 he was actually teleported from a CIA facility in California to a secret U.S. base on Mars. Mr. Basiago termed the cover-up of the Mars colony “Mars-gate” and called for a Congressional investigation of the U.S. presence on Mars.

Ms. Eisenhower stated that, “Alternative 3” – the notion that trillions of dollars of resources are being spent to protect human life by placing it on Mars – should give way to “Alternative 4,” a new public awakening to achieve a sustainable civilization on Earth.”

Such claims sound like the wildest fiction worthy of an Ian Fleming thriller novel or 007 movie but closer examination of these revelations suggests a more disturbing plausibility…

In June of 1977 a documentary edition of “Science Report” was aired on Anglia TV in Britain that examined “ALTERNATIVE THREE”, an investigation of rumors that scientists had determined that by the early years of the 21st century, the Earth’s surface would be unable to support life due to pollution leading to catastrophic climate changes.

It was proposed that there were three alternatives to assure humanity‘s survival:

[ALTERNATIVE ONE] The first involved the detonation of nuclear bombs in the stratosphere in order to allow the pollution to escape into space.

[ALTERNATIVE TWO] The second alternative was the construction of elaborate underground bases.

[ALTERNATIVE THREE] The third alternative was to populate Mars via a way-station on the moon.

Shortly after this video was aired it was debunked as a hoax; a clever dramatization parading as an investigative news report. However, this ‘fiction’ was in part based on solid evidence that Alternatives 1, 2, and 3 were seriously proposed programs.

Author, lecturer, researcher, Milton William Cooper served as a member of the Office of Naval Security and Intelligence while on duty as a Harbor and River Patrol Boat Captain at Danang and the Dong Ha River Security Group in Vietnam. William Cooper was awarded several medals for his combat leadership and heroism.

In his book “Behold a Pale Horse” Cooper reveals classified Defense Department files that he has access to during his service with Naval Intelligence. This briefing data confirmed the “Alternative Three” scenario;

“A symposium was held in 1957 which was attended by some of the great scientific minds then living. They reached the conclusion that by, or shortly after, the year 2000 the planet would self-destruct due to increased population and man’s exploitation of the environment.

By secret Executive order of President Eisenhower, [MJ-12] scholars were ordered to study this scenario and make recommendations from their findings. [MJ-12] confirmed the findings of the scientists and made three recommendations called ALTERNATIVES 1, 2 and 3.

On May 22, 1962, a space probe landed on Mars and confirmed the existence of an environment, which could support life. Not long afterward the construction of a colony on the planet Mars began in earnest.

Today cities exist on Mars populated by specifically selected people from different cultures and occupations taken from all over the Earth. A public charade of antagonism between the Soviet Union and the United States has been maintained over all these years in order to fund projects in the name of National Defense when in fact we are the closest allies.”

Curiously in 1957 the very same year mentioned in Cooper’s classified military files that referenced the “Alternative Three” symposium, a Walt Disney’s television program entitled “Mars and Beyond” publically stated: “Today as we face the serious problems of over-population and depletion of natural resources, the possibility of Mars becoming a new frontier is of increasing importance in our plans for the future.”

Is there any substance to this “Urban Legend”? In 1961 shortly after the discovery of the Van Allen Radiation Belt that surrounds our planet, Hollywood released “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea”, a fantastic thriller where the Van Allen belt actually catches fire. To save the planet from roasting, an atomic missile is launched into the belt, extinguishing the blaze; a solution curiously reminiscent of Alternative One.

And today we see our skies laced with “Chem-trails” used for the alleged purpose of filtering solar radiation because of the depleted ozone layer. Could this be a modern variation of the Alternative One objectives?

In May 1995, former Defense Department engineer, Phil Schneider revealed: “The Black Budget is a secretive budget that garners 25% of the gross national product of the United States. The Black Budget currently consumes $1.25 trillion per year. At least this amount is used in black programs, like those concerned with deep underground military bases. [D.U.M.B.] Presently, there are 129 deep underground military bases in the United States.”

Such testimony infers that Alternative Two is substantial and serious. It is fairly well known that the Defense Department has been building underground facilities ever since the days of the Cold War when fear of Soviet attack justified their necessity. Markings on the huge boring machines clearly reveal their military utility.

According to the testimony of Mr. Basiago and Ms. Eisenhower, Alternative Three has progressed far beyond the theory stage. Fantastic advances in classified space transportation technologies have pushed this project into solid reality as well.

Obviously preserving our human genome is a worthy endeavor. Establishing colonies on Mars or other worlds in space as insurance against unforeseen Earth cataclysms or wars seems a humane, noble pursuit, but is such an admirable project convenient cover for darker ambitions? Does a break-away military-industrial-conglomerate entertain plans to occupy Mars and the solar system in a covert scheme to advance the territorial ambitions of a hidden, totalitarian order?

Is a secret fraternity of privileged elitists engaged in re-fashioning humanity into a species of their own invention? How ironic! Here’s the “War of the Worlds” scenario in reverse--an aggressive army of human invaders from Earth descending upon the Martians! 


Increasing natural disasters… expanding environmental degradation… and general economic deterioration are making human survival on planet Earth more tenuous, just as President Eisenhower’s 1957 “Alternative Three” warnings predicted.

If we have reached the threshold of potential global extinction, would the ruling elite of the planet be content to meekly accept the same doom that’s in store for the rest of the population?  Or have the global managers fashioned their own secret escape plan to “Get-Outta-Dodge”?

The hit disaster film “2012” clearly portrays the mentality of the ruling elite who have commissioned the building of gigantic “arks” to ride out the monstrous tidal waves that ravage the planet; arks built exclusively for the safety of the corporate and political masters.

Allegedly technologies to assure human survival off-world have been in the works at least since the early 1950’s. Jealously guarded research and development operations involving captured alien spacecraft have advanced revolutionary “quantum” space-flight propulsion systems for altering space and time to form transportation “portals”.

Former director of Lockheed’s top-secret “Skunk-Works” facility at famed Area-51, Ben Rich, who was in charge of operations from 1975 to 1991 stated: “We now have the capability to travel to the stars. First, you have to understand that we will not get to the stars using chemical propulsion.” The quantum secret is that ALL POINTS IN SPACE AND TIME ARE CONNECTED.

According to the testimony of Black-Project insider, Henry Deacon to Project Camelot, the Military-Industrial-Complex has mastered teleportation technologies with operational “Jump-Gates”…

“…travel across large distances is best done using portals. Anything else is really... it's just inefficient. One of the portals connects to Mars, and it’s a stable connection, no matter where Earth and Mars are in their orbits. We have a base there established in the early sixties. Actually, we have a number of bases. Transportation is by two means: star-gates for personnel and small items, spacecraft for larger items of freight. The alternative fleet is codenamed SOLAR WARDEN.”

Existence of this alternative fleet was also verified by Project Camelot whistle blower Gary Mckinnon. This British citizen and computer science genius thought to have hacked into 53 U.S. government agencies’ computer systems said he was eventually able to hack into the U.S. “Space Command” network, where he found evidence of an extraterrestrial mission.

“I found a list of officers’ names,” he claims, “under the heading ‘Non-Terrestrial Officers’… What I think it means is not earth-based. I found a list of ‘fleet-to-fleet transfers’ and a list of ship names. I looked them up. They weren’t U.S. Navy ships. What I saw made me believe they have some kind of spaceship, off-planet.”


Internet text from an alleged CIA briefing with President Ronald Reagan in 1981 revealed that ET technologies held the secret to interstellar space travel:

“Some information was evaluated with the idea of using the gained data to advance our own space technology and future space programs. [The EBEs] can travel that great distance by means of space tunnels. They seem to be able to bend the distance from one point in space to another.”

In physics, a “WORM-HOLE”, referred to as an “Einstein-Rosen Bridge”, is a hypothetical topological feature of space-time that would be fundamentally a shortcut through space-time. These “Whistle-blower” testimonies confirm that secret Defense projects have made practical application of wormhole portals!


From a UFO contact case investigated by researcher Wendelle Stevens in 1978, came additional confirmation about secret Mars-colony projects. 

William J. Herrmann, a born-again Christian living in Charleston, South Carolina, became a UFO experiencer in the late 1970s. At that time, Herrmann was deacon of his Southern Baptist Conference church. After several ongoing UFO contacts with gray aliens, Herrmann received an anonymous phone call warning him to keep silent about his UFO contacts…

“Mars can support life…human life. It’s been proven. The moon once held colonies of scientists… and a probe landed on Mars on May 22, 1962. The Committee at Residenceis a joint government Paramilitary Technological Conglomerate.  The CIA is small-fry compared to them… God, the KGB is small-fry compared to them. They’re watching you. Alternative Three-- The Committee At Residence… The Committee knows the UFOs know… about everything, the violations, atrocities, ‘batch-consignments’, everything… they’ve tried suppressing UFO data, but it can’t be held down anymore… too much pressure… too much at stake…!  When the atmosphere vaporizes its shields--all life will perish! Perish, do you hear?”


Richard Hoagland, former space advisor to Walter Cronkite and CBS television also confirms a secret military agenda for our “civilian” space agency: “The NASA that we’ve known for 50 years has been a lie. The governmental institution known as NASA is a department of the Executive Branch, ultimately answerable solely to the President of the United States, an agency created through the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958. NASA ostensibly is, a “civilian agency” exercising control over aeronautical and space activities sponsored by the United States.  But contrary to common public and media perception that NASA is an open, strictly civilian scientific institution, is the legal fact that the space agency was quietly founded as a direct adjunct to the Department of Defense… tasked with specifically assisting the national security of the United States in the midst of a deepening cold war with its major geopolitical adversary, the Soviet Union. This is directly contrary to everything we’ve been led to believe regarding NASA for over 50 years now.”

So was the Cold War a public relations hoax to justify fantastic financial expenditures on secret military space projects? The convenient build-up of our space defenses coincided with the Soviet Union’s build-up making it easy to convince the American public that our build-up was protection from Soviet attack. It would seem that secret bases on both the Moon and Mars would be integral to NASA’s space-based defense strategy.

But has the earth’s ruling elite and its paramilitary technological conglomerate also been duped into fulfilling a diabolical alien agenda against the unsuspecting masses of the human population?  Is the colonization of Mars the ultimate trump-card for alien masters to create a new race of hybrid slaves?

Ms. Laura Eisenhower states: “When Hitler died and the Nazis lost power- the entities including those that were ET/Extraterrestrial did not.  They continued to find hosts and create agreements with people who were a part of the races of the patriarch and Global Elite - who want to run things through fear tactics, control and the suppression of Sophia or the essence of the Divine Feminine.”

“The archonic [patriarchal] energies have had a manipulative hold on the life-force and creativity of Gaia for thousands of years, personified as Sophia the Goddess.  Our Mother Earth is more powerful than these lower energies though, but to instantly break free of the dysfunction would mean a mass apocalypse and the re-establishment of a new creation.  To let go and lose awareness would result in being taken away on an agenda that has been in the works, with the intention of re-seeding a new civilization on Mars under the selfish control of the Global Elite- therefore leaving the Earth to atrophy and self-destruct.”

Just where will the fate of humanity be decided--Earth or Mars?

Mr. Basiago and Ms. Eisenhower issued a joint statement about human survival colonies on other planets: "It is a positive thing for the human race to put survival colonies on other planets. Earth has been struck by many cataclysms in the past, and so we should protect the human genome by placing human settlements on other celestial bodies.  Yet, when secrecy surrounding such projects tempts government to rob the free will of individuals, and excludes humanity from debating a subject that implicates the whole human future, and diverts the destiny of a planet to serve an off-planet agenda, the conscience of a free people requires that such projects be undertaken in the bright sunshine of public scrutiny, not within the dark corridors of the Military-Industrial Complex.”


Once again, it is important to restate that the conjectures showcased in this course are not offered as proof that our government institutions have in fact established operational bases on Mars.

However, it may be significant to note that in 2001, The National Science Foundation and the Department of Commerce organized a workshop for major corporations and defense contractors to review the impending arrival of what Newt Gingrich called, “The Age of Transitions”.

Concepts discussed at this workshop were published in a report: “Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance: Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information Technology and Cognitive Science”.

Visions laid-out in this workshop included; robotics, cybernetics, artificial intelligence, life extension, brain enhancement, virtual reality, genetic engineering, and even—TELEPORTATION!

One of the important issues that Andrew Basiago emphasized in his call for a “Mars-Gate” investigation was the practical advantage of teleportation technologies. Present forms of mechanical transportation are clumsy, antiquated, expensive, petroleum-dependent contraptions that foul the environment. Teleportation offers an economical, planet-friendly alternative that can replace such outdated technologies
