This is the Dr. Beter Audioletter, Box 16428, Ft. Worth, Texas -

Hello, my friends, this is Dr. Beter. Today is January 28,
1978, and this is my Audioletter No. 30.

One evening last spring the Beverly Hills Supper Club in
Southgate, Kentucky, was packed with customers. They were
enjoying a good time, and the troubles of the world outside
seemed remote and forgotten for the moment. But in a room away
from the crowds, fire broke out. It soon became apparent that
the fire would spread to the rest of the Club. Someone went on
stage to warn the customers to leave. He called for attention,
and warned them in a calm voice that fire had broken out in
another part of the Club. He cautioned them against panic but
urged everyone to get up immediately and leave in an orderly
manner while there was time to do so. A few people listened,
took him at his word or at least decided 'Better Safe than Sorry'
and got up and left. But to his astonishment many did not listen
at all, and most of those who did listen just laughed and went
back to their merrymaking--after all, they could not see any
flames nor even any smoke. And so the man redoubled his
warnings, pleading with them to leave before the fire
arrived--but to no avail. A few who had doubted at first now
realized that he was serious, and got out; but many continued to
ignore him. No flames, no smoke, so how could there be a fire.
But then suddenly there was smoke, and a moment later--fire! The
fire spread rapidly, panic broke out as people surged toward the
doors. Soon the Beverly Hills Supper Club was a raging inferno,
and the loss of life was staggering. Meanwhile the few who had
heard and heeded the warnings, stood outside looking in awe at
the horrible nightmare before them.

My friends, I feel today like the man who tried in vain to
give that warning to the patrons of the Beverly Hills Supper
Club. Five years ago when I wrote my book "The Conspiracy
Against the Dollar" there was still time for an aroused American
public to stave off disaster. Since that time I have tried
through Congressional testimony, radio and television Talk Shows,
lectures and tape recordings, to wake up America in time. A few
have listened and have even taken action in every way they could
to help, and that makes the whole effort worthwhile to me
personally; but most of us today will never bring ourselves to
really believe our nation is threatened by the fires of nuclear
war until we begin to be singed by the flames.

As I speak to you today, the flames are already licking at our
feet. The forces which were set in motion by our secret rulers
decades ago, have suddenly turned against them in recent months.
Now they are trying frantically to stop some of the things they
have launched, but it is too late. While they have been gambling
over the years, the rulers in the Kremlin have been playing a
shrewd game of chess, and now checkmate is upon us. What's more,
a very important shift in power within the Kremlin ruling circles
has taken place in recent weeks, whose effect is to accelerate
the possible demise of our once great land.

My three topics for today are:

Topic #1--It has now been a year and a half since the Soviet
Union launched its all-out military double-cross of our own
secret rulers. It all began with the Soviet underwater missile
crisis of 1976, which I first made public in Audioletter No. 14
for July of that year. By two months later, I was able to detail
for you how public exposure of the Soviet threat, even though
that exposure was limited, played a key role in preventing for
the moment a surprise nuclear attack by the Soviet Union. But
once that attack was averted, our secret rulers tried to patch up
their alliance with Moscow, thinking wrongly that they could keep
the upper hand with the Russians until they had served their
purpose. That alliance was part of the grand design, the
long-range commitment to create a dictatorial One-World
Government that secretly was forged early in this century. So
our un-elected rulers kept right on trying to keep the limping
alliance on its feet until disaster struck four months ago. On
September 27, 1977, America lost the still secret but historic
Space Battle of the Harvest Moon. Our rulers' military trump
card, the secret American moon base in Copernicus Crater, was put
out of action by the Soviet Union using an orbital neutron
Particle Beam weapon. Suddenly, the military upper hand had
shifted decisively to the Soviet Union. Now the long-standing
plans and preparations for America to be ravished by depression,
dictatorship, and war are coming to fruition, but under
circumstances drastically changed from those our rulers foresaw.
Our rulers are trying to turn some of the events they have set in
motion into new channels, and are trying to stop others
altogether; but the momentum is too great and they have waited
too long. Blinded by their own greed and lust for power, it is
as if the driver of a car traveling 60 miles an hour suddenly saw
a cliff 10 feet ahead. He might slam on the brakes and slow down
slightly, or he might turn the steering wheel to change the car's
direction, but it would make no difference--he would still go
over the cliff.

Today the American economy is turning increasingly sour by the
day. The slow motion crash of the Stock Market that began three
years ago is speeding up. Stagflation is deepening as
unemployment remains high while inflation gathers steam. The
dollar is sick, sinking almost daily on international currency
markets. Meanwhile gold, which United States Treasury propaganda
has declared to be obsolete for monetary purpose, is on its
tortuous way up. The conspiracy against the dollar by our own
rulers, which I described in my book five years ago, is now
yielding fruits of international monetary unrest, potential
protectionist measures, and economic controls. Angry coal miners
are extending their strike so long in the midst of an unusually
severe winter that Utilities are beginning to run low on fuel.
And now the nation's farmers, caught between high prices for what
they buy and low prices for what they sell, are also striking.
Originally these and other economic disruptions were to be used
to help set the stage for implementation of a corporate socialist
new Constitution that has already been written for America; but
now there's no time for such niceties, and our rulers are
preparing to use these things to help launch a new Bolshevik
revolution right here in the United States. And to help do the
job, already over 15,000 of the old Bolshevik faction who are now
being expelled from the Soviet Union, have flooded into the
United States--all in a period of only 3 months since the Battle
of the Harvest Moon. Last month I explained why this is being
done. Meanwhile the aftermath of America's catastrophic loss of
the Battle of the Harvest Moon is creating violent cross currents
and confusion, especially in matters of defense and foreign
policy. On one hand, the controlled Carter administration is
trying to keep Moscow happy by seeming to comply with Soviet
orders to dismantle our defense establishment under the banner of
the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT). Yet, on the other
hand, our rulers are doing everything possible to stall while
trying to hurriedly throw together something of significance to
counter the overwhelming Soviet military might. As a result,
contradictions are all around us these days. On one hand a
government study suddenly emerges announcing the conclusion that
nuclear war is un-winnable. Then Jimmy Carter reveals a budget
that reflects this thinking with great cuts in critical strategic
areas. And on the other hand, the funding of tactical weapons
which cannot attack the Soviet Union is increased and the package
is sold to the public as the NATO budget. And while Jimmy Carter
is busy abandoning NATO, by throwing away things the Europeans
would like to have, Secretary of State Vance visits Turkey and
Greece in an effort supposedly to shore up and strengthen NATO's
eastern flank. And in the Middle East our rulers are now trying
to halt the diabolical plan to ignite war which they themselves
set in motion; and in this new situation with the alliance with
the Soviets gone, a Middle East war would be damaging to them
instead of helpful. The State Department is now trying to stop
the sequence of events set in motion by certain circles in the
CIA which are leading to war. Most of all, they want to deny to
the Soviet Union any pretext for a larger conflict that will
destroy the United States. If the Kremlin were still being run
by the cautious rules of Leonid Brezhnev, our rulers might buy
some time with these efforts; but in recent weeks a dramatic and
important change has taken place, and the result may well be to
cut short the pathetic behind-the-scenes maneuverings of our
secret rulers.


For 13 years and more Leonid Brezhnev headed the Soviet Union.
When his own Cuban missile adventure under the authority of
Nikita Khrushchev failed and humiliated Russia in 1962, Brezhnev
adopted a policy of cautious but determined step-by-step
advancement in Soviet power. As the boss of the Kremlin, this is
the approach Brezhnev followed patiently and doggedly. The
crowning stroke of this approach was so-called Detente--a lie,
which our own rulers wrongly thought would ultimately work to
their own benefit in the struggle for world domination in secret
alliance with the Soviet Union. But as early as 1973, Brezhnev
had to defend his patient detente approach to a strong faction in
the Politburo, who were becoming increasingly impatient to throw
off the charade. They wanted to subdue the hated United States
once and for all by swift and sudden military force; but Brezhnev
successfully defended his own approach, pointing out that by
pretending to be genuinely in league with America's ruling
circles, the Soviet Union was being handed money, food,
technology, and territory at a tremendous rate at no cost other
than continued patience. Most telling of all, he reminded them
of the many Soviet programs which were developing advanced
military technology to leapfrog past the United States--programs
which were unknown to America's ruling circles. In 1973 these
were not yet ready but soon they would be deployed, tested, and
produced in sufficient numbers to create a decisive shift in the
military power balance. Brezhnev got his way but not without a
continuing undercurrent of pressure from the KGB and military
complex in the Kremlin. They were especially nervous about the
secret American Moon Base for the reasons I explained in detail
last September. They were afraid that Russia might fail to beat
the United States in the crucial Particle Beam weapons race with
disastrous results, and they knew that the CIA was planting huge
super-ICBM missiles under the sea to threaten the Soviet Union
from practically invulnerable resting places in the Atlantic and
Pacific Oceans. As I revealed in Audioletter No. 26, they knew
that ultimately the secret game plan of America's real rulers
called for a double-cross and the destruction of the Soviet Union
after America had been brought to its knees in a carefully
programmed nuclear war. Finally a blend of viewpoints became the
guide for Kremlin policy. Brezhnev's program called Detente
would be continued to extract maximum benefit from it. Meanwhile
preparations would also be set in motion for a first strike, a
surprise attack before the secret American Moon Base could
possibly be ready with its planned Particle Beam installations.
The target date was June 1976. It would not be an ICBM attack
but an attack with zero warning time from within the territorial
waters of the United States, and the principal targets would be
naval targets. It would be a strike from an unexpected direction
with an unexpected strategy; and afterward the entire
conventional nuclear arsenal of missiles, planes, and submarines
would still be in reserve, discouraging any American attempt at

The Soviet underwater missile crisis of 1976 is history now,
even though the Government still has never told you about it. My
Audioletters from No. 14 onward chronicle the details of the
crisis and how public exposure ruined the crucial element of
surprise, preventing the attack at that time. But I have also
detailed for you the manner in which then President Gerald Ford
knuckled under and threw away what turns out to have been
America's last chance in a military sense. A combination of
public exposure, honesty, and firmness could still have prevented
war because the coming decisive shift in the military balance had
not yet taken place. That chance is now gone forever. Prompt
actions of the right kind by the controlled Carter administration
beginning a year ago might still have been able to prevent
disaster, but instead the administration has been doing all the
wrong things at breakneck speed. Now Soviet underwater missiles
infest our territorial waters including even the Great Lakes.
Both Soviet land and underwater nuclear mines, about which I
first began warning last April, now are planted ready to destroy
dams, reservoirs, riverfront facilities, locks, dams and bridges
along our waterways, key governmental and military installations,
grain elevators, factories, and other targets. Manned Soviet
Cosmos Interceptor Satellites are orbiting the earth armed with
Particle Beam weapons, having already demonstrated their ability
to destroy our spy and early-warning satellites. The moon now
belongs to the Soviet Union, and it bristles with Particle Beam
weapons aimed at the earth; and Soviet Hovering Platforms, now
all manned and armed with Particle Beam weapons, are floating at
this very moment over North America and other select locations

Against this background of a decisive, catastrophic shift in
the military equation in favor of Russia, an important change has
taken place in recent weeks within the Kremlin itself. For over
six weeks, since December 8, 1977, Leonid Brezhnev has been
virtually out of sight, reportedly due to illness. The story is
that he has been weakened by complications from Russian Flu and
that this is the reason he has not been meeting with visiting
foreign ministers or appearing in public for several weeks. Even
a letter was sent to West Germany a few days ago canceling a
major visit there by Brezhnev--again, supposedly, because he
needs rest. But, my friends, Leonid Brezhnev did not merely have
complications from the "flu" but also acute leukemia and lung
cancer as well! By New Year's Day he was completely
incapacitated. So for all intents and purposes, the Kremlin
leadership is now in the hands of the hawks.

Intelligence sources have noticed in recent weeks that the
Kremlin seems to be suddenly more adventuresome, bolder, and
unconcerned about what the United States or anyone else may say
about their aggressive moves. For example, a massive Soviet
airlift of arms to Ethiopia is underway, and the Russians are
flying through the air space of any country they choose as if
daring anyone to stop it or complain. The reason, my friends, is
that now the military and KGB complex are now in control and they
are very eager to flex their muscles. They all belong to that
secret new ruling circle that controls the Kremlin today I told
you about two months ago; but the change in tactics is as
dramatic as the contrast between Brezhnev's detente speech and
the violent belligerence of his Defense Minister's speech side by
side on November 7, 1977, in Red Square. Also as I told you last
month, the Soviet campaign of intimidation of America is already
underway--and it's increasing!

When I recorded Audioletter No. 29 last month, seven floating
platforms armed with Particle Beam weapons had already been
deployed over the United States in locations which I gave you.
Today there are twelve (12) over American territory, including
one each over Hawaii and the Panama Canal plus one over Canada.
More about that later. I reviewed in detail last month how
Platform No. 1 hovering over the Atlantic Ocean east of
Charleston, So. Carolina, used de-focused Particle Beams to
produce violent air blasts or air quakes off Charleston and also
off the New Jersey coast. By January 12, earlier this month,
Platform No. 1 had moved inland to hover over a spot about 10
miles west of Raleigh, North Carolina, and from there it again
created a series of blasts off Charleston described by some
witnesses as "the worst yet." The new adventurers in the Kremlin
have also begun setting off more and more of the nuclear mines
which have been planted all around our country. There are
slightly more than 10,000 grain elevators of all sizes and
descriptions in the United States. Of these, however, a much
smaller number can be considered major elevators and only 89 are
export elevators. They are critical components in our nation's
food supply.

The day I recorded Audioletter No. 29 last month, on December
22, two grain elevators suddenly exploded--one near New Orleans,
the other at Tupelo, Miss. Both were caused by Soviet sabotage;
and as I pointed out in my tape, the explosion at New Orleans
came four months after I warned publicly of the Soviet nuclear
mines along the Mississippi River. In the wake of additional
grain elevator explosions, we have heard an avalanche of
governmental words about low humidity, sparks, and the explosive
nature of grain dust. These hazards are real, my friends, but no
government official has tried to explain why these hazards which
have always existed have never before produced a continuing rash
of explosions like those of recent days. What's more, listen to
these words of a high Agriculture Department official concerning
the huge Continental Grain Company elevator that blew up near New
Orleans: "The New Orleans operation was considered one of the
cleanest. We were very surprised by that explosion." And the
humidity in New Orleans that day was 67%. A grain dust
explosion? Who's fooling whom?

I warned you last month that this was only the beginning due
to the extensive Soviet sabotage permitted within our country.
And in the past month more grain facilities have been destroyed
by Soviet sabotage plus other targets. For example:

December 23, 1977, Tonawanda, New York, near Buffalo--early
morning explosion and spectacular fire at the Allied Chemical
Company plant on the Niagara River, one man seriously injured -

December 27, 1977, Galveston, Texas--grain elevator belonging to
Farmers Export Grain Company, violent explosion heard 70 miles
away, followed by fire, 18 killed - SABOTAGE!

January 19, 1978, Liberty, Missouri--explosion and fire in the
grain processing area, Desert Gold Feed Company, 3 killed, 6
critically injured - SABOTAGE!

January 21, 1978, Duluth, Minnesota--Capital Grain Elevator No. 4
on the waterfront at the west tip of Lake Superior, destroyed by
explosion and fire in midafternoon - SABOTAGE!

January 23, 1978, near Stevenson, Wash.--huge gas line ruptures
with an explosion so violent some people nearby think a war has
started; gas pouring from the main creates a torch a mile high
and several hundred feet wide towering into the night sky -

That same evening, January 23, Albany, Calif., near San
Francisco--Alcan Metal Processing Plant explodes violently, huge
mushroom cloud rises into the night sky and many witnesses are
convinced at first that a bomb has gone off, one man seriously
injured - SABOTAGE!

January 25, 1978, near Sioux Falls, So. Dakota--grain elevator
destroyed by fire, no injuries - SABOTAGE!

And my friends, there have been many others.

What is the purpose of these acts of sabotage? Let me give
you the answer of an expert--he's General J. H. Rothschild, U.S.
Army, retired. Quoting from his famous book "Tomorrow's Weapons"
published by McGraw-Hill in 1964, and I quote: "Sabotage
operations are planned to achieve specific objectives. It does
not seem logical, therefore, that in general they would be used
during a continuing cold war situation simply for their nuisance
value. Rather, they would be used to break down public
confidence immediately preceding the outbreak of hostilities, or
otherwise tied into an overall design. A sustained campaign of
sabotage acts, irregularly dispersed with regard to time and area
of occurrence, can produce a constant build-up of public fear and
a complete loss of confidence in authority." Thus, my friends,
the signs are all around us that we are on the brink of a Soviet
surprise attack.

Topic #3--For generations the Statue of Liberty has stood in New
York Harbor, beckoning the poor and the oppressed of other lands
to America with the lamp of Freedom. Untold millions have
sacrificed, struggled, and courted death for the privilege of
sailing past her to the Ellis Island Immigration Depot to begin
new lives as Americans. In the past as many as 5,000 immigrants
in a single day have entered the United States at Ellis Island in
the protective shadow of the Statue of Liberty, and for every
single one of them it was an experience never to be forgotten.
But today, the Statue of Liberty at Ellis Island silently tells a
different story. In September 1972 Ellis Island closed its doors
to immigrants, and is today a national monument to what used to
be. While visitors absorb the silent echoes of a bygone era,
Ellis Island waits for the moment when it will be demolished by a
Soviet hydrogen bomb, which has already been planted in the dock
area. Likewise, the Statue of Liberty now holds aloft not the
lamp of Freedom but a torch of WARNING. Within the statue itself
another Soviet H-bomb now waits, ready to erase what for millions
is the most precious of all symbols of national heritage--the
Statue of Liberty. My friends, Soviet saboteurs have planted
scores of nuclear mines in the metropolitan New York area, both
in the water and on land--and they are still at it, still
virtually unhampered.

It has now been nine months since I first revealed the Soviet
program of nuclear sabotage in the United States, beginning with
major western dams and reservoirs. By last June 1977, Soviet
nuclear saboteurs were overrunning our country, without
interference except where Canadian authorities caught them north
of our border on information relayed by me. As you know, I
temporarily suspended recording the Audioletter in an all-out
effort to decisively expose and thereby stop the mushrooming
Soviet sabotage before it was too late. After a silence of three
months, I resumed the Audioletter with issue No. 25 in August
1977. I told you what I had been trying to do with the
cooperation of concerned citizens nationwide. I told you of the
official inaction, unwillingness to investigate, and other
factors that had defeated these efforts; and I alerted you of the
great length to which the Soviet sabotage had already gone by
then--such as the 158 nuclear mines lurking in the Mississippi
River alone, like the one that destroyed the Continental Grain
Company grain elevator near New Orleans four months later on
December 22, 1977. Now, thanks to Soviet sabotage preparations,
grain elevators and other important installations in the United
States are exploding and burning with unprecedented frequency--so
much so, in fact, that many of these occurrences are now being
minimized and even embargoed in the major news media in order to
keep the public as a whole from realizing what is taking place
and losing confidence in authority. Meanwhile, the Soviet
sabotage campaign has now been allowed to proceed so far that
nuclear mines are no longer being placed exclusively at strategic
targets. Many are now being planted also in non-strategic
psychological targets with little or no direct military or
economic importance. Thus the Soviet Union is now preparing to
engage in the world's first nuclear terrorism.

To use New York City again as an example, according to my
latest intelligence information, there are over 80 Soviet nuclear
mines planted already in and around the five boroughs--26 in the
water, the rest upon land. Among the targets are: Rockefeller
Center, the Empire State Building, United Nations headquarters,
Columbia University, Fordham University, Bellevue Medical Center,
Central Park Reservoir, and other public buildings. Mines also
threaten the George Washington Bridge; all three legs of the
Triborough Bridge; the Queens Borough, Manhattan, and Brooklyn
Bridges as well as other bridges. Railroad tracks and yards are
mined along with several subway stations and the Rapid Transit
Station at Yankee Stadium, the Holland and Brooklyn Battery
tunnels are mined, La Guardia Airport is threatened by two land
mines and a third nearby in Flushing Bay. There is a mine off
Willets Point near the Fort Totten Military Reservation, and one
near the Naval dry dock at Bayonne, New Jersey. There is one in
Long Island Sound near the United States Merchant Marine Academy,
and one near the Police Academy Firing Range on Rodman Neck.

But sabotage is only one small part of the massive Soviet
effort to get ready to make war on the world's proudest nation.
For example, in a speech earlier this month, General Richard
Ellis, the head of the United States Strategic Air Command, said:
"We are faced with serious concerns over the development and
deployment of arms by the USSR. This momentum of growth over the
last decade has not been limited to any one system, any one
mission, or any one geographical area." To illustrate what he
meant, General Ellis referred to the Supersonic Backfire Bomber,
the Soviet Ballistic Missile Submarine fleet, the world's largest
ICBM force, the huge Soviet Civil Defense program, the tremendous
Soviet Air Defense System, the operational Soviet anti-satellite
capability, and the huge and growing Soviet Army with new
equipment ready to fight nuclear, chemical, biological, or
conventional warfare. General Ellis went on to call attention to
the great increase in Soviet war-training military exercises
during the past year--quote: "This series is the most extensive
ever noted, and such activity is now becoming a routine feature
of Soviet Force and Command tests. It reflects the expanse and
sophistication of the momentum of Soviet military development."

My friends, we often hear soothing words about how backward
the Soviet Union is compared to the United States. This is true
in the area of commercial goods, which is where we put most of
our money and know-how; but when it comes to military and
scientific development, it's a different story. We tend to
forget that the Soviet Union began surprising us in military
technology soon after World War II. In 1949 the USSR handed
America a nasty surprise by exploding an atomic bomb years before
they were expected to do so. Espionage and help from high places
in government and industry played a major role in that surprise,
but it still required technological capabilities that were very
considerable indeed. Then came Korea and another surprise--our
fliers met it in the air, it was called the MiG-15 Fighter. Over
a year ago I told the true story of the Sputnik I surprise. We
could have beaten Russia, but we did not. In 1961 there was
still another shocking surprise. At an Air Show in Moscow a
brand new supersonic twin-engine bomber of advanced design
dumbfounded spectators from the West as it roared over their
heads. It was unlike anything in the West, and until it flew
over, our Intelligence community did not even know it existed.
Today this bomber is still operational, and it's called the
"Blinder" by NATO. And so it goes, my friends.

By two decades ago Soviet science and military technology were
beginning to rival our own, and in some areas were even ahead;
and as long as a decade ago highly knowledgeable Americans who
visited the Novosibirsk Science City were shaken by what they
saw. Elaborate, up-to-the-minute facilities, prosperous
surroundings, and a level of scientific expertise that was "kind
of scary" - in the words of one such visitor. I have told you in
the past how this all came about. It was built up artificially
using massive transfusions of technology and economic aid from
the West, primarily the United States; but the fact remains it
exists, and the Soviet Union is no longer under the thumb of
those who brought about this transformation. The Soviet Union is
now a great Frankenstein monster, and it's turning on its former
masters, our secret rulers, to destroy them; and already the
Kremlin is making preparations to police a conquered world.

Last month I revealed that the Soviet Union had begun
operational deployment of Floating Platforms over the United
States and selected other areas world-wide. These platforms,
which are not in orbit, are able to hover in a stationary
position over any location they choose, as I explained last
month. They are an advanced version of the hovering platforms
some of our highest military leaders could see on the technical
horizon over 15 years ago. Just as happened with Sputnik I, the
United States could have developed such platforms long before the
Soviet Union, but did not. Now the Soviets have them, and we do
not! The Soviet Floating Platform, armed as it is with Particle
Beam weaponry, is called the "Anti-War Machine" by the Kremlin.
By this they are referring to the intended role of the Platforms,
after the United States is destroyed by nuclear war, in policing
the world under Soviet domination. A small hint of what they can
do has been provided recently by the mysterious "air quakes"
along the east coast of the United States in the past six weeks.
As I told you last month, these have been caused by de-focused
Particle Beam blasts at sea by Platform No. 1. In focused
operation, these Beams can even destroy American ICBMs in their

When I recorded Audioletter No. 29 last month, there were
seven Floating Platforms over our country--four of them manned,
the other three waiting for crews to arrive by electrogravitic
shuttle. Today, the number over the lower 48 states has
increased to ten (10) and they are all manned now, as are all the
rest that are deployed world-wide. The two platforms which last
month were off the coast of southern California and So. Carolina,
moved inland early this month to respective positions roughly
over Hoover Dam and over North Carolina half way between
Fayetteville and Cape Fear. There also has been some shifting of
position among the other platforms. As of tonight, all but one
are south of the 40th Parallel, which I revealed in May 1976 is
the lower boundary of the super-secret Nuclear Safe Zone. There
is also a platform over southern Alaska, another over the ocean
just west of Oahu, Hawaii, and a third directly over the Panama
Canal. Four platforms are on stations over Latin America--one
each over Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Bolivia. In Europe, NATO
countries are wringing their hands over whether or not the Carter
administration will let them have Cruise Missiles and Neutron
Bombs for self defense against the Warsaw Pact forces. But
floating overhead now are a string of three Soviet platforms--one
over France, the second over western Hungary, and a third over
Turkey. In the Middle East, on-again off-again peace talks are
alternating with accusations and name calling. Meanwhile,
hovering silently overhead at the northwest tip of Saudi Arabia
is a Soviet platform able to strike Israel, Jordan, Lebanon,
Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Syria. In southern Africa,
shouting over apartheid and majority rule are going on under the
eyes of two floating platforms which can now strike targets in
Rhodesia and South Africa at will. A third platform is currently
stationed over the northern border of Zaire, capable of knocking
out the secret West German Particle Beam development
installations in Shaba Province, Zaire. A platform is floating
near Lahore, Pakistan. Another is over the west coast of India
near Bombay; and when Jimmy Carter was just 800 miles away in
Delhi early this month, it blasted an Air India Boeing 747 out of
the sky, killing all 213 aboard. There are two platforms over
Red China--one in the east, the other in the west near the Lop
Nor weapons installation. There is a platform over southern
Japan, and lately the Japanese are finding the Soviets unbending
in negotiations. There's a platform between Indonesia and New
Guinea, and there are three over Australia--one in the north, one
in the southeast, and one in the west. Finally, there is a
platform over the Arctic Ocean northwest of Alaska, and two more
over Russia itself for protective purposes. In the past few days
the platforms over the United States have started descending to
very low altitudes, ranging from 15 to 60 miles. All the other
platforms world-wide are remaining at their normal altitudes of
several hundred miles, with one exception. The platform near
Israel has descended tonight to an altitude of 50 miles. There
has been no attempt to intercept any of these platforms.

One week ago the Soviet Union announced the launching of the
first in a new series of spacecraft, called "Progress I." Radio
Moscow described it as a cargo craft of a new type, a sort of
automatic space truck; but a better term would have been space
bus. Far from being unmanned, as claimed, Progress I was
launched with nine cosmonauts aboard, and the link-up with Salyut
6 is only temporary. Progress I is to be the first component of
a mammoth new space-station to be constructed in space, like
those the late Dr. Wernher von Braun foresaw 25 years ago.

Few Americans paid much attention to Progress I, but Americans
and the world were rocked back on their heels just four days ago
by an unpleasant new Soviet surprise. On that day, January 24,
1978, an early morning announcement in Washington said that a
Soviet nuclear-powered satellite had crashed in northern Canada,
and there were worries that it might have spread deadly
radioactive contamination on the ground, in the air, or both; but
over and over again, all day long, news reports assured us in
breathless terms that there was nothing to get excited about.
Even before United States and Canadian search teams were sent to
start looking for the remnants of the satellite, National
Security Council chief Brzezinski said during his early morning
press briefing: "This is not a horror scenario. The chances of a
real hazard are small", and yet he also said "We were planning
for the worst."

The crashed Soviet satellite known as Cosmos 954 was described
by various reports in the news as a navigation satellite, an
observation satellite, or simply a military satellite. Finally
the government released the official story that it was a spy
satellite. So far only the BBC has come close to the truth,
calling it a "raider satellite" on January 25. All reports have
described it as unmanned; but, my friends, it is manned.

The story of the Cosmos Killer Satellite 954 began four months
ago in September 1977. That month in Audioletter No. 26 I
revealed that the Soviet Union already had two operational Killer
Satellites in orbit, and that they had been used. One, as I
mentioned then, was Cosmos 929 launched two months earlier on
July 17, 1977; the other was Cosmos 954, the satellite that
crashed in Canada a few days ago. (For my newer listeners, I
should point out that in Audioletter No. 26 I described in detail
the newly operational Soviet Killer Satellites. That tape was
recorded on September 30, before the government made its first
announcement about Soviet Killer Satellites on October 4, 1977.
On that day Secretary of Defense Harold Brown stunned reporters
with a totally unexpected announcement during a press conference.
He said that the Soviet Union now has an operational Killer
Satellite capability which can destroy our spy satellites.)
Before Cosmos 954 was launched last September, Cosmos 929, the
first of Russia's new fleet of Cosmos Interceptors, was already
in orbit, undergoing final check-out. Armed with charged
Particle Beam weapons these destroy target satellites by causing
them to erupt into enormous fireballs, a rash of which were
reported around the world for a while starting in late September.
Cosmos 954 was also a Killer Satellite, similar to Cosmos 929
except in one respect: Cosmos 954 was armed with a Neutron
Particle Beam, and it was intended for a very special task. In
September 1977 Cosmos 954 was launched from the Tyura-Tam
Cosmodrome in the Soviet Union. Cosmos 954 had been rushed into
orbit on a crash program to put it into operation at the earliest
possible moment. KGB agents at Diego Garcia, headquarters of
then America's secretly continuing Moon Program, had informed the
Kremlin that they would have to act fast.

On September 26, 1977, Cosmos Killer Satellite 954 was ready.
It began firing its Neutron Particle Beam weapon at the moon,
bombarding the American personnel in Copernicus Crater with
deadly neutron radiation, just like that produced by a Neutron
Bomb. Through the night and into the next day the bombardment
continued, interrupted only when the earth blocked Cosmos 954's
line of sight to the moon. By late in the day of September 27,
1977, the last astronauts in Copernicus Crater were dead. In a
stunning upset, the United States of America had lost the most
decisive battle of the 20th Century--the Battle of the Harvest
Moon. Cosmos 954 performed well, and did its job in the Battle
of the Harvest Moon! But whenever a Particle Beam weapon is
fired, it produces a reaction that disturbs the orbit of the
satellite from which it is fired. The Soviet Cosmos Interceptors
use auxiliary thrusters to correct for this effect; but those
aboard Cosmos 954 did not perform perfectly during the Battle of
the Harvest Moon, leaving the orbit still needing correction.
When these corrections were attempted later, the thrusters
malfunctioned; and despite repeated attempts by the crew of
Cosmos 954 to find and correct the problem, they were
unsuccessful. By early December, NORAD (the North American Air
Defense Command) had detected the orbital troubles of Cosmos 954.
A top secret project, Operation Morning Light, was set in motion
by the National Security Council to get ready for the crash of
Cosmos 954 anywhere in the world--and a possible nuclear disaster
as a result of the crash. That is why shortly before Christmas,
reporters asking the Pentagon about a rumored new Soviet
anti-satellite test, got no answers. The National Security
Council had clamped a lid on the story. On the morning of
January 24, Cosmos 954 re-entered the atmosphere, streaking over
Queen Charlotte Island in northern British Columbia to land in
the far north of Canada. The crew capsule of Cosmos 954 with its
power-pack was designed to survive re-entry, but other parts of
the complex satellite were allowed to disintegrate in the
atmosphere. As a result, eye witnesses saw one main object,
followed by a trail of burning pieces. The main object, brighter
and faster than the rest, was the crew capsule, its heat shield
causing the air to be heated white hot. It landed safely, well
to the north of Great Slave Lake at coordinates 64-47-27 north,
115-7-30 west. That's about 160 miles north-northwest of
Yellowknife and about 120 miles southeast of Port Radium, in an
unpopulated area. Cosmos 954 had lost the ability to restore its
orbit, but the crew did still have sufficient re-entry control to
select a landing site not very different from one in the Soviet
Union. (Unlike American spacecraft, Soviet space ships always
return to land rather than splashing down the way we do.) The
crew have been in contact with Moscow, awaiting rescue. And just
as happened in October 1976, when their missile-planting
mini-submarine became trapped in Chesapeake Bay, the Soviet Union
has again been allowed to recover their stranded military craft
without public exposure. A floating platform previously
stationed over Ottawa, Canada, picked up the crew and the space
capsule this evening at about 7:15 PM, EST. It is now on its way
back toward Ottawa, its battle station.

But while the world's eyes have been riveted on the drama in
northern Canada, ominous developments have been taking place in
the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf of Mexico. As I say these words,
the Soviet Navy is once again forming a three-prong pincer
movement on the continental United States. The Atlantic fleet is
lined up over a front nearly 1000 miles long from Connecticut to
southern Florida, roughly 200 miles off shore at this very
moment. The Pacific fleet is about the same distance off shore,
spread out over a distance of 900 miles from roughly the north
tip of California southward. The Gulf fleet is stretched out
over a 750-mile front between the southern tips of Texas and
Florida. This is happening at a time when unprecedented storms
are ravaging the United States, especially in our industrial
heartland of the Midwest.

Eleven months ago, in Audioletter No. 21, I told you that the
strange, extreme storms that had just taken place were believed
to be the result of a massive Soviet weather modification
experiment. I gave a warning that a repetition of such extreme
and unusual weather patterns that paralyzed important areas of
our country, might well precede a surprise attack by the Soviet
Union; and at this very moment, tonight, our country is in the
grip of extreme and totally unexpected winter storms which are
paralyzing large areas from the Midwest to the Northeast. Even
so, the government isn't about to tell you about the Soviet
submarine fleets now deployed around our country. This is
especially true now, because the Soviet Navy is deployed in such
a way as to strongly suggest to our desperate rulers that the
Soviets are going to live up to the super-secret Nuclear Safe
Zone agreement, which I revealed long ago in Audioletter No. 12;
and that's why, as Jimmy Carter and other top government
officials converged on the War Room at the Pentagon just today,
the cover story given the public is that it is to view "a
simulated crisis situation."

My friends, the Russians are now ready. They are ready to
destroy America's military and economic resources at a single
coordinated blow. They are ready to survive American
retaliation, if any; and they are ready with their floating
platforms deployed world-wide, plus their eight (8) Particle Beam
installations on the moon, to begin policing a conquered world.

Until next month, God willing, this is Dr. Beter. Thank you,
and may God bless and protect each and every one of you.
