Hello, my friends, this is Dr. Beter. Today is April 28,
1978, and this is my Audioletter No. 33.

On a summer day in 1971, two men in space suits sat aboard an
awkward looking four-wheeled vehicle that was making its way
across the surface of the moon. American astronauts David Scott
and James Irwin, the lunar landing crew of Apollo 15, were on
their way to get a close look at the gigantic lunar canyon known
as Hadley Rille. They were the first men in history to go for a
ride on the lunar surface. As they bumped along, they passed the
rim of a crater, which they named Earthlight Crater. Mission
Control in Houston radioed back, "Arthur Clarke would be proud of
you." Sixteen years earlier, in 1955, the renowned British
writer Arthur C. Clarke had published a prophetic book with the
title "Earthlight." Published two years before the Space Age
dawned with Sputnik One, Earthlight was about man's then future
occupation of the moon; and in honor of Clarke's vision, the
Apollo 15 astronauts named Earthlight Crater after the book. And
very often during television coverage of the American visits to
the moon, Walter Cronkite of CBS News had at his elbow none other
than Arthur C. Clarke. In his book, Clarke painted a vivid
picture of the great value the moon would
acquire--scientifically, economically, and strategically. The
climax of this book, honored so uniquely by the Apollo 15
astronauts, is called the "Battle of Pico", a hypothetical space
battle centered on the moon; and while the details are quite
different, Clarke's fictional Battle of Pico foreshadowed in
eerie ways the real space battle that took place more than two
decades later in September 1977. The Battle of the Harvest Moon
has been kept a secret from the public, both by the victor (the
Soviet Union), and by the vanquished (the United States of
America); but it is the key to understanding the increasingly
headlong retreat of the United States on all fronts under the new
boldness of the Kremlin.

Like September 1977, April 1978 has been a watershed month in
the needless decline and fall of the United States and of the
western world. Now, as last September, crucial developments have
taken place under the shroud of secrecy with no official hint of
what is actually taking place. Now, as then, the only public
clues to the momentous developments going on behind the scenes
are obscure diplomatic maneuvers and mysterious occurrences of
all kinds. Last September, for example, there was the mystery of
the so-called UFO over Petrozavodsk in the Soviet Union. Then, a
scant week later, there was the loudly trumpeted breakthrough in
SALT II negotiations. This breakthrough, we were told, accounted
for the highly unusual sudden nighttime meeting with Jimmy Carter
at the White House demanded by Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko. As I told you that month in Audioletter No. 26, the
object over Petrozavodsk was not a UFO, and the major media
stories about a SALT breakthrough were lies to mislead the
public; and today, seven months later, there still is no SALT II

This month there is the alleged mystery of the Korean air
liner that intruded into Soviet airspace while Secretary of State
Vance was in Moscow to discuss arms limitations. The talks took
place against a background of clear Soviet threats that this was
to be America's last chance to conclude a SALT II treaty. The
talks ended as deadlocked as ever; but suddenly the Soviet stance
in public is the embodiment of sweet reason and patience.
Meanwhile, Secretary Vance refuses to tell the public anything
about what went on in Moscow.

Today, the Republic of the United States of America is in the
twilight of final decline prior to nuclear war. Our secret
rulers behind the scenes are still trying to salvage what they
can from their ruined plan for world conquest, and in the process
are making our situation even more desperate day by day. They
are manipulating our economy and our politics to their own ends.
They still believe that their wealth will save them from the
nuclear nightmare that they are bringing upon the rest of us, and
they are stalling for time hoping to obtain the fruits of crash
projects of military development in time to stave off the
crushing military might of the Soviet Union.

Since the Battle of the Harvest Moon seven months ago,
ideology is rapidly being cast aside as the determining factor
for the actions of governments. As the world drifts closer to
war, it's increasingly every nation for itself in the arena of
world affairs. Historical patterns and alignments are pushing
aside ideological arguments, and the survival instinct is taking
the place of treaties and even of long-standing friendships
between nations. The shabby treatment of America's allies by our
secret rulers over the years is now coming home to roost. Even
now, as we are being backed into a corner, our rulers are
continuing to throw chunks of meat to the advancing Russian Bear
to buy a few moments of time. As our rulers throw away a weapon
here, an ally there, the Russian Bear pauses for a moment to
digest each gain and then presses ever closer. And as we are
backed into the position of fortress America, we are increasingly
a fortress without weapons and without the spirit to survive.
Like France before May 10, 1940, we hear daily assurances of our
military strength and the dependability of our untried defenses.
But like France in 1940, we are eaten up within by spies,
inaction, and apathy.

My friends, there are those who say I should not tell you the
whole truth about behind-the-scenes events that are determining
your fate because, they say, I am frightening the people. But
consider these words of a famous German psychiatrist: "Fear can
be disruptive, leading to panic, immobility, and abdication of
rationality in favor of blind emotion; it can also be
constructive, creative in the search for ways of escape,
sharpening the wits in order to avoid or overcome danger. One of
the difficulties is that so many of us are too apathetic to be
afraid, either trusting to fate to extricate us or shrugging our
shoulders that the prospect of what will be, will be." When
nuclear war comes, including geophysical warfare, only those who
have been forewarned will have any chance of avoiding the panic
that will seize those who are taken by surprise. Only total
exposure can prevent nation-wide panic. The American people will
bow to a dictatorial government as our Republic collapses in
flames, and only total exposure plus a spiritual re-awakening
could possibly turn aside the man-made catastrophe that is in
store for all of us.

My three special topics for today are:



Topic #1--For several years now the Stock Market has been
following a long term trend downward, crashing in slow motion.
But just two weeks ago on April 14, 1978, the Stock Market in New
York suddenly jumped out of the doldrums, as if on signal.
Without plausible explanation trading volume soared to
astronomical levels setting all-time records, while the Dow Jones
averages raced upward steadily. Meanwhile, government economic
statistics were sold to the public as showing that our economy
was picking up, and even the badly slumping United States dollar
appeared to be gaining a new lease on life, thanks to rumors that
the United States government was about to start auctioning off
gold to prop up the dollar. But as every housewife knows,
inflation is advancing steadily, eating up the family budget and
making it even harder to make ends meet. And while the
government drones on and on about inflation a few per cent per
year, shoppers find prices on practically everything today
leaping upward week by week. It's enough to make one think the
government and the Stock Market are in a dream world of their
own. And, my friends, they are.

We still hear monthly about America's balance of payments
deficit, even though it has become an obsolete measurement. As I
explained five years ago in my book THE CONSPIRACY AGAINST THE
DOLLAR, the traditional balance of payments measurement has been
outmoded by multinational corporations, most of them owned and
controlled by our Secret Rulers. Over 200 of the mightiest of
these together with their multinational banks form the economic
empire of the Rockefeller cartel. Multinationals push money and
goods around among themselves however they please, and as these
dollars cross national borders they cause the nation's balance of
payments to reflect whatever they choose.

For example, foreign affiliates of American multinational
corporations send oil from abroad to America and are paid in
dollars that contribute to a so-called negative balance of
payments for the United States, even though the companies
involved are effectively Rockefeller controlled on all sides of
the transactions.

Today the greatest single export by American multinational
companies is jobs. The economic manipulations that have helped
to solidify Rockefeller control over the United States have also
forced costs in the United States to soar compared to other
countries, so increasingly the multinationals buy labor in
cheaper markets overseas that used to account for jobs in
America. The result is a steadily rising hard core of unemployed
who can no longer find jobs. This process has turned the United
States increasingly into a service-oriented economy while our
basic industries have declined. There was a time not so long ago
when the words "Made in USA" were stamped on many of the products
that dominated world markets, but no more. Today in many cases
only the name is American--the product itself is European, or
Japanese, or Mexican, or otherwise foreign made. Now this
process has gone so far that even the American lead in aerospace
is fast disappearing. As major new generations of commercial
aircraft are being considered for the world's air line fleets,
lately the competition is being won by European manufacturers,
not American. Until recently aircraft exports have long been the
single major bright spot in America's increasingly dismal export
picture. Now that too is slipping from our grasp.

As we Americans look around us today we are unconsciously
seeing a hollow shell of what used to be. Like a perfectly
painted timber of wood eaten up inside by termites, it still
looks impressive but the real strength is gone. Much of the
technological and economic power that used to be America's now
resides abroad--in Europe, in Japan, and in the Soviet Union.
The process of milking the United States economically and
technologically strengthened in 1961. It was part of the
two-pronged grand plan for world conquest that was set in motion
in 1961 by our Secret Rulers, the four Rockefeller brothers and
their associates.

As I've explained in detail in earlier tapes, one prong of
this plan was visible in its effects, involving the gradual
weakening of the United States to the point of military
vulnerability. This was to culminate in a carefully programmed
nuclear war between the Soviet Union and the United States,
primarily on American soil. But then, after the American people
had been beaten down to such an extent that we would accept
complete dictatorship under Rockefeller control, the second prong
of the plan was to be put into effect--that is, a double-cross of
the Soviet Union by their secret allies the Rockefellers. Using
supersecret weapons developed since 1961, the plan was to utterly
destroy the Soviet Union as the climax of the war, and the
Rockefellers would have emerged as the undisputed masters of the
entire world. This grand plan came to ruin seven months ago in
the disastrous Space Battle of the Harvest Moon, but the bitter
fruits of this diabolical plan are still with us.

In order to be in a position to profit from nuclear war on the
soil of the United States, the Rockefellers transferred the bulk
of their assets ahead of time to areas where they would not be
touched by Nuclear War One. This included multinational
affiliates in Europe, in Latin America, as well as to the tightly
controlled Rockefeller corporate empire in Japan. It also
included massive transfers of American money, technology, and
military secrets to the Soviet Union to cement the
Rockefeller-Soviet alliance until the day of double-cross.

The plan also included the spiriting away of the huge monetary
gold hoard of the United States. In the magic year of 1961 when
the entire grand plan was getting under way, the monetary aspect
of the plan got under way in the form of the London Gold Pool
Agreement. Under the cloak of this authority, America's gold
flowed out of the United States in a continuing hemorrhage from
1961 to 1968, when the Gold Pool was ended. The ending of the
London Gold Pool Agreement on March 17, 1968, was followed the
very next day by the signing of Public Law 90-269 by President
Lyndon Johnson. With the stroke of a pen the requirement that
the United States dollar be backed by gold was eliminated; and on
August 15, 1971, President Richard Nixon closed the gold window,
declaring by Executive Order that the United States would no
longer redeem dollars with gold even in international monetary
transactions. It was a declaration of war on the dollar, and
since then American inflation and sinking dollar values have gone
hand in hand.

According to official United States Treasury figures, the
United States still retains the world's largest monetary gold
hoard, some 277,000,000 ounces; but four years ago this month in
April, 1974, I testified before Congress to the fact that the
Treasury figures are falsified and that the United States is in
fact gold poor. Based on very solid intelligence information, I
described the secret removal of vast quantities of gold from the
bullion depository at Fort Knox for transferral to powerful
private interests. I stood ready to present my evidence and
witnesses under oath before a Federal Grand Jury or Congressional
investigation with subpoena power--but there was no
investigation, so I made my charges public by every available
means, offering to go to jail as a rabble rouser if I could not
prove my charges in a proper legal forum. But still no honest
investigation of any kind materialized! Instead, worried by
mounting public pressure, the Treasury arranged a public
relations peep show at Fort Knox. There, invited Congressmen and
newsmen were shown stacks of strangely reddish bars of alleged
gold in just one small compartment; and this was followed by a
so-called Gold Audit, which when it was finally released after
months of delay, said only "We believe" that the gold is there.

The United States Treasury Department has been aware for some
time that something would have to be done about the resurgence of
concern about Fort Knox, so during 1977 about 1.5 million ounces
of gold were obtained from Portugal. This, plus other assorted
reserves of mostly junk gold that have been scraped together,
brings America's true gold stock right now to just over 3-1/2
million ounces. This is a mere pittance compared with the
277,000,000 ounces on official Treasury books, but it does
provide something to use for psychological gold sales once again.
Earlier this month the Treasury made a big deal of announcing
that the United States will hold six monthly auctions of gold
amounting to 300,000 ounces each. At this rate, if the United
States really had the claimed stocks of gold, auctions could be
held monthly for 77 years--yet the Treasury offers to do so only
for six months, as a psychological ploy.

Several years ago the Rockefellers and their associates began
the process of bailing out in preparation for war. Now, using
their control of certain key financial institutions here and
abroad, they have suddenly created an artificial Stock Market
run-up, known in some circles as a Bear Trap. The idea is to
have these controlled holders of large blocks of stock begin
trading among themselves in a frenzy back and forth, raising
prices and generating tremendous Stock Market trading volume in
the process. Soon unsuspecting outside investors, the so-called
Bears who have been leery of the sick Stock Market, are drawn
into the fray to invest in what looks like a Bull Market. This
situation may continue for some time; but when the smoke clears,
the big controlled investors who created the artificial Bull
Market will have cut their bloated portfolios, and the normally
bearish outside investors who have bought their stocks at
inflated prices will be left holding the bag. Without the
artificial pressures now being applied, the Stock Market will
once again begin sinking, and the Bears who have been sucked into
the Stock Market whirlpool will be trapped. The Stock Market
Bear Trap now in progress is bad enough, but there's a far worse
Bear Trap that is now closing around our Secret Rulers as well as
the rest of us, and that is the War Trap of the Russian Bear.

Topic #2--On May 7, 1915, the passenger liner LUSITANIA was
nearing the end of its journey from the United States to Great
Britain. The Great War was under way, and for nearly three
months a German submarine blockade of Britain had been in effect,
but the nearly 2,000 passengers aboard the ship were not
expecting trouble because, after all, the Lusitania was a
passenger vessel. Suddenly, without warning, torpedoes struck
the Lusitania. She was under attack from a German submarine.
Soon the Lusitania sank, and nearly 1,200 lives were lost. Only
later did it come out that the Lusitania had been carrying large
quantities of vital war materiel below decks, war materiel that
was subject to the announced blockade by Germany. The attempt
had been made to sneak this war cargo through the blockade by
using nearly 2,000 unsuspecting passengers as a protective shield
against attack, but the attempt had failed with tragic

This month, on April 20, 1978, a modern-day parallel to the
Lusitania incident took place when a Korean Air Lines Boeing 707
penetrated Soviet air space and finally was shot down. As with
the Lusitania, Korean Air Lines Flight 902 was carrying out a
military mission using the lives of unsuspecting passengers as a
protective shield against attack. But this time the mission was
not the delivery of war materiel but the gathering of

Korean Air Lines Flight 902 was 39 minutes late taking off
from Paris that day due to an unexplained delay. Then the 707
took off into the afternoon sun, heading northwest over the
Norwegian Sea on its Arctic route to Anchorage, Alaska.
Periodically the pilot checked in with ground stations, and as
long as the 707 was within tracking range of radar he was right
on course. After passing over northern Greenland, Flight 902
passed out of the range of ground radar installations. Later the
pilot reported that he was approaching Ellesmere Island in
extreme northern Canada; but in fact he had put his plane into a
slow, sweeping U-turn to the right, flying a course towards an
unannounced destination--the Soviet Union, and the final position
report to northern Canada given while the jet was still outside
radar tracking range served to prevent anyone from guessing what
was afoot. The Korean 707 raced into Soviet air space from the
north and passed directly over the mammoth submarine base at
Murmansk, the headquarters of the Soviet Northern Fleet. There
is no naval site in the entire Soviet Union that is more secret
or sensitive than Murmansk. As two Sequoy 15 Jet Fighters were
scrambled to intercept the 707, it continued southward across the
Kola Peninsula, which is dotted with military installations and,
like Murmansk, highly sensitive. The 707 forged ahead on its
pre-planned flight route without regard for the Fighters--it did
not slow down, turn on landing lights, or do anything else to
respond to the Soviet Fighters--one of which flew alongside, the
other trailing behind the 707. After passing almost completely
across the Kola Peninsula, Flight 902 was about to head across
the narrow White Sea to pass over the Port of Archangel and not
far beyond it the supersecret Plesetsk Cosmodrome. At that point
Moscow ordered the Fighters to force the 707 down by damaging it,
but not to destroy it. The Fighter that had been alongside
dropped back and away and the other opened fire taking care not
to destroy control surfaces or ignite the fuel tanks. Gunfire
from the Fighter tore holes in the fuselage, killing one
passenger outright, fatally wounding another, and injuring
perhaps a dozen more. Cabin pressure began dropping fast, and
now the 707 was forced to dive to lower altitudes very rapidly.
Within five minutes the 707 had dropped to only 3,000 feet where
it flew around for another hour and a half before landing finally
in a wide, clear area far from any airport. Throughout the time
that the Korean 707 was flying through Russian skies, special
instruments installed on the plane were generating reconnaissance
data. The data together with the cockpit conversation were
transmitted in coded form to CIA receivers just beyond the Soviet
border. This is why National Security Adviser Brzezinski was
able so quickly to announce that Soviet Fighters had fired on the
Korean 707. As an intelligence mission, Korean Air Lines Flight
902 was a success; but when you hear why it was necessary, you
will begin to understand just how desperate America's military
situation has become.

As I say these words, several days have passed since the
Soviet Union allowed a Pan American Jet Liner to fly the crew,
passengers, and bodies of the two passengers who were killed from
Murmansk to Helsinki, Finland. Everyone was released except the
pilot and navigator, who are still detained in Russia for

We have heard all kinds of stories in the major news media
trying to convince us that the flight crew became "disoriented",
that the navigation instruments of the 707 somehow misbehaved and
misled the crew, and that the United States government is very
puzzled about it all. But after the crew and passengers were
rescued from the crash-landed Korean 707, it very quickly became
obvious to Soviet authorities that the intrusion into Russian air
space could not have been accidental. For example, the
navigation instruments on a Boeing 707 use what is called
Redundant Design so that the failure of even a major component in
the system cannot destroy the accuracy of the navigational data
available to the crew. As for the effects of magnetic compass
variations in Arctic regions, these effects are real; but for
many years Jet Transports have been using Polar routes many times
daily without difficulty, because there are standard techniques
to correct for these magnetic variations. The crew of Korean Air
Lines Flight 902 were well experienced in Polar flights and in
using these techniques; and yet, for the whole episode to have
been accidental, the seasoned pilot, co-pilot, and navigator
would have had to miss the most familiar and unmistakable of all
navigation clues--the position of the sun. Even some of the
passengers said after their ordeal that they had privately become
worried when midway through the flight the sun shifted around
from a position ahead of them to a point behind the plane. As if
that were not enough, Flight 902 just 'happened' to enter Soviet
air space with pinpoint accuracy to pass directly over the
critical Murmansk area. Then, faced with the menace of a Jet
Interceptor alongside the 707 with its red Soviet star clearly
visible even to many passengers, Flight 902 just forged ahead
deeper and deeper into highly sensitive Russian military

No, my friends, there was nothing accidental about the Korean
air liner's flight into the frozen north of Russia. Those who
suspect that it was an intelligence mission are correct. But
that raises two questions that go to the heart of the matter:
What intelligence information could possibly be so urgent that
the lives of 110 people were put at risk in order to obtain it?
And why was it necessary to resort to such a crude means of
intelligence gathering? My friends, you will search the major
media news reports in vain in looking for the answers to these
two questions; and your sworn public servants, so called, in the
Federal government are busy trying to play dumb about it, so they
won't tell you. But if you will simply review the progress of
events that I have been telling you about over the past seven
months, you will be able to understand what happened without any

The events leading up to the Korean Air Liner incident began
seven months earlier to the day on September 20, 1977. At about
4:00 a.m. local time on that date a newly operational Soviet
Killer Satellite destroyed an American Spy Satellite over the
northern Russian town of Petrozavodsk. The Killer Satellite
involved was Cosmos 929, the first in a fleet of manned Cosmos
Interceptors which destroy targets by means of charged Particle
Beam Weapons. The American Spy Satellite erupted into an immense
fireball as it exploded in space. The display was so spectacular
that it was seen as far away as Helsinki, Finland, and described
as a jellyfishlike UFO in news reports here. Last September in
Audioletter No. 26 I described this first destruction of an
American Spy Satellite in more detail. And on October 4, 1977,
just a few days after I revealed the existence of operational
Soviet Killer Satellites in Audioletter No. 26, Defense Secretary
Harold Brown held a press conference at the Pentagon. He stunned
everyone by confirming the newly operational Soviet capability in
Killer Satellites; but he refused to say anything about how they
worked, so many reporters have speculated incorrectly that they
are of an old explosive, unmanned design. During October, as I
reported in Audioletter No. 27, the Soviet Union launched six
more Cosmos Interceptors into orbit. All around the world they
began blasting American Spy Satellites, and during October 1977
strange reports of fireballs in the sky peppered the news.
Meanwhile, virtually the entire Soviet Submarine Fleet was
deployed in attack positions around the United States to
discourage any American effort to retaliate for the destruction
of our Spy Satellites. By early November the situation with our
Spy Satellites was becoming critical, and Soviet military
pressure on the controlled Carter administration was building
fast. On November 18, 1977, the Voice of America was used to
hurl a war threat at Russia over the Spy Satellite crisis which I
quoted in part in Audioletter No. 28. A pre-emptive American
attack on the Soviet Union was being seriously considered by the
Carter administration, but once again the overwhelming power of
the Soviet Navy was used to stop that idea in its tracks.

On January 24, 1978, Cosmos 954, the mysterious Soviet Nuclear
Satellite, crash-landed in Canada. As I explained that month in
Audioletter No. 30, Cosmos 954 was the very Killer Satellite that
had been used four months earlier in the Battle of the Harvest
Moon. But few people paid much attention a week later when
Cosmos 929, the very first operational Soviet Killer Satellite,
returned to earth on February 2, 1978. Meanwhile, as I reported
in Audioletter No. 31, more than 30 Soviet Cosmos Interceptors
equipped with Particle Beam Weapons were in orbit patrolling the
earth by then.

Last month, as I called to your attention in Audioletter No.
32, the Kremlin repeated its SALT II surrender ultimatum to the
United States. It was March 27, six months to the day after
America lost the Battle of the Harvest Moon and Gromyko delivered
the first SALT II ultimatum at the White House. The official
Soviet newspaper Pravda delivered the ultimatum using the
language of diplomacy, and the jumpy Carter administration once
again verged on panic. Only two days later it was announced that
Secretary of State Vance would meet with Soviet Foreign Minister
Gromyko to talk about SALT II, perhaps in Geneva; but in the end
Vance was forced to make his pilgrimage hat in hand to the
fountainhead, Moscow. By the time of the initial announcement of
a planned Vance-Gromyko meeting, Leonid Brezhnev No. 2 was off to
the Soviet far east in company with Defense Minister Marshal
Dmitry Ustinov. Brezhnev No. 2 is the ceremonial double who has
been taking the place of the real Brezhnev in public functions
beginning a few weeks after the real Brezhnev's death in Moscow
on January 7, 1978.

It is now Ustinov who is the strongest man in the Kremlin.
Ustinov is the new Khrushchev allowing others to present the
image of power while he is consolidating his own leadership
behind the scenes. My friends, the use of doubles in politics
and diplomacy is scarcely ever suspected by the public. After
all, we are the ones who are supposed to be fooled by it; but at
the diplomatic level it is not an uncommon practice at all, and
when a double is detected a diplomatic tradition is not to
comment about it in any way. To do so would be seen as
interference in the internal affairs of another
country--something for which the Soviet Union has no tolerance.
So even though Secretary of State Cyrus Vance and others know
Brezhnev No. 2 is a double, they simply go along with the
charade. Can you imagine?

During the far eastern trip by Brezhnev No. 2 and Ustinov,
disputed border regions between the Soviet Union and China were
visited. Rousing speeches to Soviet troops were used to extract
shouted pledges from the troops to protect the motherland, but
China was only partially the target of all this. On April 7
Brezhnev No. 2 made a speech aboard a cruiser in the port of
Vladivostok dwelling not on China but on the United States. The
Carter administration was accused of vacillation and
inconsistency in the SALT II negotiations, and the point was made
that by stalling the United States was on the verge of losing the
chance altogether for a SALT II agreement. When American
Intelligence analysts heard that, they shuddered. SALT II is
secretly intended to be America's surrender treaty through
unilateral disarmament. The only alternative to surrender under
an ultimatum is war itself, and Brezhnev No. 2's words had not
been chosen lightly. After the Vladivostok speech he turned
momentarily toward Ustinov for a nod of approval, and he got it.
It was increasingly clear that the Vance trip to Moscow was
taking on an either/or significance. Either Vance would find a
way to continue stalling without raising excessive Soviet anger
or he would have to sign on the dotted line. If possible, delay
is wanted by those who are controlling the United States
government because Operation Desk Top has been re-activated.

In January 1977 I revealed that the CIA had planted a fleet of
Undersea Super Missiles on the floor of the Atlantic and Pacific
Oceans but that they had begun leaking and becoming disabled one
by one. In one instance after I revealed this, the leakage
poisoned whales in the ocean east of Florida, and they began
beaching themselves to die in great numbers near Jacksonville,
Florida. Today the entire original fleet of CIA Undersea
Missiles are defunct but Operation Desk Top, which originally
planted these missiles in the sea, has been reactivated and a new
fleet of Undersea Missiles is being planted. This is being done
under cover of drilling off the East Coast for oil. Many of the
drilling operations going on there now are genuine; but Exxon,
the oldest and most tightly controlled of all Rockefeller
corporations, is being used in Operation Desk Top. In August
1976 when the Soviet Underwater Missile Crisis was secretly in
progress, Exxon set the whole oil industry abuzz by bidding
fantastic amounts in order to control large sections of the
Atlantic oil field now being explored. Now, Exxon is using the
Glomar Pacific Drilling Ship in connection with Operation Desk
Top. The Glomar Pacific is a sister ship to the famous Glomar
Explorer--the Howard Hughes mystery ship, so-called, which was
used in the original Operation Desk Top. So the American
strategy is to keep buying time in hopes that the new fleet of
CIA Undersea Missiles and other ad hoc actions can be completed
in time to counter the crushing military power of Russia. But
remembering the nightmare days of last fall following the Battle
of the Harvest Moon, the Soviet words of late suggested that any
further delay by Vance in Moscow could be the last straw. It was
concluded that for Vance to know how to play it, he would have to
be provided with up-to-the-minute intelligence on the Soviet
military-alert status while the talks were under way. If it were
found that the Soviet forces were in a posture of readiness to
launch an attack, Vance would have no choice but to agree in
principle to the secret surrender provisions of SALT II; but if
Soviet forces were in a lower alert posture, he was to continue
stalling with just enough concessions to avoid a total deadlock.

A year ago there would have been no problem in providing Vance
with this crucial "Go" versus "No Go" intelligence information,
because a year ago the United States still had a network of Spy
Satellites in orbit. Now, we don't. I can now reveal that the
orbital fleet of the Soviet Cosmos Interceptors has finished the
job of eliminating America's Spy Satellites that can make
observations in the Soviet Union. We have not retaliated because
we dare not. We no longer have the ability to detect Soviet
ICBMs at the moment of launch, so any ICBM missile attack will
produce only the much shorter warning provided by our Early
Warning radar network; and we can no longer watch troop movements
and other military activities continuously through out the Soviet
Union. So it was clear that a special reconnaissance flight
would have to be flown in order to provide the intelligence Vance
needed in Moscow. But the advanced air defenses of the Soviet
Union can now shoot down any western reconnaissance aircraft,
including even the RS-71 which flies 20 miles high at three times
the speed of sound. The only chance was to use an airplane the
Russians might refrain from shooting at--that is, a passenger
airplane; and to minimize suspicion it could not be an American

As I pointed out two months ago, the disastrous aftermath of
the Battle of the Harvest Moon had brought about a major
re-thinking of the announced Carter plan to pull troops out of
South Korea. Someone suggested that this slowdown, which was
already being planned, be offered to South Korea in exchange for
a South Korean intelligence flight into Soviet territory. This
plan was adopted, and the fate of Korean Air Lines Flight 902 was
sealed. On April 20, 1978, Secretary of State Vance was in
Moscow. It was the first day of his talks with Gromyko.
Seemingly by coincidence, that same day Korean Air Lines Flight
902 strayed into Soviet air space and flew around over a
tremendous concentration of Russian military installations. By
the time the 707 finally landed, American intelligence officials
had their answer--the Soviet Union was not preparing for an
immediate attack. The news was flashed to Vance in Moscow, and
the stalling proceeded according to plan. The very next day
Jimmy Carter announced a delay in the troop pullout plan for
South Korea.

The Korean Air Line incident illustrates one very important
fact that is often forgotten. Regardless of the weapons
involved, strategy is always of paramount importance and can
sometimes tip the balance against tremendous odds; and of all
strategic factors, surprise is the most powerful. The Korean 707
succeeded in penetrating the most powerful air defense system in
the world because the Russians were caught off guard--they were
not expecting such a stunt. Just imagine, my friends, what the
impact will be when the military might of Russia is combined with
surprise in the war to come!!

Topic #3--What I am trying to do in my tapes, my friends, is to
help enable you to interpret the present in the light of the
future. Once you understand where events are heading, and why,
you will no longer be mystified and caught by surprise by the
turbulent events of today. But no one can grasp anything about
what the future holds unless he has learned the lessons of the
past. Looking at the Republic of the United States today, some
of the most vivid lessons we should have learned from the past
came out of the collapse of the French Third Republic in 1940.
The collapse of France in the face of Hitler's military machine
in 1940 was shocking, but it was inevitable. The seeds of defeat
had already been sown in France during the preceding years when
France refused to recognize the reality of the threat and take
action to protect herself. Like America today, France was eaten
up from within by spies; yet like America today, France felt safe
behind its Maginot line, and for public consumption there were
continuous assurances that French military forces were adequate
to maintain French security. The ability of France to defend
herself turned out to be pure fiction. When the moment of truth
arrived, the fine images and self-deception collapsed, and with
them the French Third Republic.

Today, the United States is nearing the moment of truth,
following a period of decay, self-deception and image making that
parallels that of France from 1933 to 1940. Alexander Werth has
written a book about that period titled "THE TWILIGHT OF FRANCE"
published in New York by Fertig in 1966. In the introduction D.
W. Brogan wrote the following words, and I quote: "That France
was beaten in 1940 was not surprising, only a miracle could have
prevented that; but not only had the world come to expect
miracles of France, the world was dazzled by the victory of
1918." And I quote again: "The French defeat was not surprising;
what was surprising was the failure to preserve the fruits of
victory--those minimum guarantees of French security."

Like France in 1940, the United States today is basking in the
afterglow of victory long since dead; and like France in 1940, we
have failed to preserve minimum guarantees for our own security.
In fact, America has slipped even farther than France because
under the guise of Arms Limitation we have shut down air defense
systems, military bases and navy installations, and otherwise
abandoned the defense of our own homeland. Historians are unable
to find any precedent in history for such suicidal action by a
great power. The twilight of the United States has now
guaranteed that it is humanly impossible for the United States
either to turn aside or to win a war with the Soviet Union. Only
a miracle could do that, but we as a nation do not deserve a
miracle. Instead of the faith in God that built the United
States, most Americans now put their faith in the United States
itself as if it were a godlike being that could never go wrong
and never be defeated.

In the midst of the Moscow meetings this month between Vance
and Gromyko, a Soviet spokesman reiterated for the last time in
clear terms that this was America's last chance to sign a SALT II
treaty; and despite the seeming improvement in the tone of the
talks and regardless of the seeming Soviet willingness to keep
talking about SALT II, this was America's last chance to
surrender by that route. The Russians know that the controlled
Carter administration is stalling for time, they know about
Operation Desk Top and the other ad hoc efforts to find some
military threat of significance to aim at the Soviet Union, and
they know about the Rockefeller moves to try to turn China into a
credible deterrent--but it is all too little and too late. The
Kremlin has no intention of allowing these desperate maneuverings
to bear fruit, but plans to cut them short with war on Soviet
terms and at a time chosen by the Soviet Union. Since the end of
the Moscow talks on April 22, 1978, the Kremlin has committed
itself to a step-by-step clearing of the decks for war. There is
no rigid timetable but there are definite steps planned. The
intention is to complete as many as possible before launching war
against the United States so that it will be possible to
concentrate fully on America's conquest when the time comes.
Even so, the Soviet Union stands ready for war at any moment.

Very important to the Kremlin is a propaganda campaign which
has already started to get the Russian people ready for war. The
Soviet Union is going out of its way to seem reasonable and
constructive about arms control in particular while the United
States is being painted as uncooperative and threatening.
Another top priority has to do with Soviet invasion preparations
in Canada and Mexico which I described last month. After the
initial surprise nuclear attack, the Soviet Union wants to be
ready to mobilize its troops, tanks, artillery, and weapon caches
quickly for invasion across our northern and southern borders.
There is also the major matter of Red China over which a tug of
war has erupted between the Soviet Union and the United States.
This is so important that two days ago Brezhnev No. 2 sent a
Deputy Foreign Minister to Peking for talks about the border
dispute. In the days ahead China will be increasingly the focus
of attention by both sides, but the sleeping giant should have
been left alone, because the pressures and inducements now being
showered on China by the Rockefeller interests are tending to
make China more revisionist and therefore more similar to Russia
in political thinking. So, unwittingly, our Secret Masters are
helping to bring Russia and China closer together, not farther

As war approaches, the United States will be plagued
increasingly by sabotage and by acts of geophysical warfare--such
as floods, storms, and artificial earthquakes, especially in
California. But the biggest surprise in store for America in the
coming war are the Cosmospheres now hovering over our heads.
Unlike the United States in recent years, the Soviet Union has
never forgotten that quantity can be just as important as quality
in a weapons system; and in preparation for the coming conflict,
the number of Cosmospheres deployed world-wide and especially
over the United States began mushrooming early this month. Based
on my intelligence information as of April 26, two days ago,
there are two hundred sixteen--repeat, 216--Soviet Cosmospheres
armed with Particle Beam weapons now hovering over locations
throughout the United States. There are nine (9) over the
Washington, D.C. area alone, three (3) each over New York City,
Roanoke, Va., and Phoenix, Arizona. Also there are Cosmospheres
located over military installations, dams, state capital cities
and other major cities. Presently they are most heavily
concentrated in the northeast area of the United States, but
there are twelve (12) each over California and Texas, and nine
(9) over Kansas. The Carter administration knows all too well
how close we are to war; that is why we are hearing more and more
about a possible national emergency, gas rationing, etc.
Congress knows too but they, like the Executive branch, refuse to
tell you the truth.

As citizens of the United States, we are now just like the
trusting passengers of Korean Air Lines Flight 902--we are just
going along for the ride, trusting our pilots in Washington; and
even when we see dramatic and disturbing signs that something is
terribly wrong, we as a people refuse to accept the
responsibility left to us by the Founders of our Republic.
Instead of picking up the Constitutional tools that were left to
us to prevent disaster, we react like the passengers on the
Korean plane who wondered why the sun was suddenly behind them
instead of ahead of them. We think it must be all right, surely
they must know what they are doing; but, my friends, our Republic
is now in the hands of men who don't know what they are doing.
They know all about lies, intrigue and trickery, but they know
nothing about honest leadership nor do they care about it. And
so the twilight of the Republic of the United States of America
is deepening before our very eyes. We have turned away from the
light of Freedom that comes only from God, and we are flying into
the darkness of war.

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