Geoengineering Watch Global Alert News, July 13, 2019, #205


Dane Wigington

Science studies have now confirmed that billions of nanoparticles are building up in our hearts and brains. What is the primary source of this contamination? Is there any place to hide from this exposure? One only needs to observe our skies to discover the answer, yet the official denial continues to be maintained. Massive algae blooms are suffocating our seas. What are the ramifications? The largest algae bloom in history is occurring from the Florida Gulf Coast far into the Caribbean. Stagnant seas are a major part of the problem, did the geoengineers manipulate hurricane "Barry" in response? How much damage is being done to the environment? Does humanity stand any chance of surviving without functional habitat? The latest installment of Global Alert News is below.

The proper prioritization of our efforts and energy is essential at this most critical juncture. Exposing and halting the climate engineering assault is the great imperative of our time, this effort will take all of us. Share credible data from a credible sourcemake your voice heard, make every day count.

The Dimming: Groundbreaking Geoengineering Documentary Is In Production, 1 minute trailer.

Geoengineering Watch wishes to express our most sincere gratitude to Maciej Kocialkowski for his tireless work toward raising awareness on the critical issue of climate engineering. The geoengineering awareness booths in the photos below were set up at the Charlotte County Administration Building (7/10/19) and at the Mid County Library (7/12/19) in Port Charlotte, Florida.

Our thanks to Mike Torrence for continuing with his efforts to raise awareness at the Tonasket Farmers Market in Washington State (7/4/19).

This week's outreach booth is at the Oregon Convention Center, Portland, Oregon, and is shown below. My most sincere and continuing gratitude to the Gem Faire exhibition organizers for facilitating and setting up this very effective booth in every week's Gem Faire location. The schedule for upcoming Gem Faire events is HERE. A booth will be at all events, thanks to the steadfast support of Gem Faire.

Geoengineering Watch wishes to express our most sincere gratitude to Kathy and Larry Burns for their help with running the GEM FAIRE booth, and for their relentless support in the battle to expose and halt climate engineering.

    I have been observing the spraying of the atmosphere for 16 years. I feel as though I am living in the Twilight Zone.When I attempt to share the information that I have regarding chemtrails, most people look at me as though I have six heads. I recently mentioned it to my primary care physician (at the risk of her determining that I was in need of psychiatric  treatment)) and her response was "Oh, do you mean the spraying for mosquitoes?:" People still insist that I am seeing contrails created by commercial planes. When I point out that commercial airlines do not travel straight up as if they were rockets being launched and they do not fly so close together to form checkerboard patterns in the sky, they still argue in defense of contrails. Amazing! Everyone I know, young & old, has chronic coughs all year round and experience frequent hoarseness. Trees are dying, due to a circular green fungus that forms on their trunks and branches. Toxic algae has been forming on lakes in my state. Most houses have stained roofs and a great deal of green mold growing on exterior walls. (The power washing business is booming in NJ.) My glass outdoor tables are coated with a black greasy substance that has to be scrubbed off daily.The spraying is virtually non-stop! It increases by the day and can even be observed on moonlit nights. How can the news media be so silent? The spraying continues because no one questions it. People just do not believe that the governments of the world could be doing this on a daily basis. One of the first questions I am asked is, who is paying for this? I am also told that if it is true, there certainly isn't anything we can do about it anyway. I now know more people with cancer, than without. That is frightening!

    Kid you not folks,but on july 18 at sunset dusk about 9:15 in bellevue idaho which is 17 miles from sun valley idaho,we saw green clouds,floating by against the back drop of a greenish red film at sunset,got a few folks to take pictures,i used the opportunity to tell them about the chemical spraying going on,a few folks are aware of this.

    • JR says:

      Yes Annelie, this mixture of crud in different colors are sickening to see up there mostly blended in with the rain clouds. One can only imagine the bad effects these chemicals can have on us, they do drop down on us. Where are the so called leaders of this country? These lowlife are on the loose and don't even bother to hide anymore. Our humongous rain clouds are being destroyed by these evil workers of America! So much for the terrorists abroad, we have them in our own backyard. You probably also know the Towers on 911 was a hack job, jet fuel wouldn't take down the Towers. WTC center came down and it didn't even get hit? Lie after lie we are told here in this Free Country we call home, pretending to be freedom liberators….

  5. Susan says:

    Northeast Washington state: I saw one bee in my garden today. One. It has been artificially cool here fore weeks. Gray-white skies. Droplets turning to sprinkles of "rain" falling from the sky. But no rain, though the trees and plants are turning crispy in mid-July.  When the sun does peak out briefly, the rays feel so hot it almost makes me glad that our sunny summer hasn't arrived. These forests are so dry. And yet, no one speaks of the truth, especially not the "weather forecasters."

    Thank you for your efforts, Dane.

    • RandylJ says:

      Susan~ Thank You for the Exact description of central North Carolina this month! The trees are losing leaves like the would in late fall, foretelling a colder-than-‘normal’ winter, which the climate engineers have already scheduled for the Southeastern U.S. following the initial freezing of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. If that’s not enough, stored oil in the Bahamas has received a second stirring this week as another smaller fabricated weather system just instantly materialized over the same area where Hurricane Dorian was engineered.

      Dane’s News Alert this week clearly reminds us that We are running out of time but to stop our efforts now would be as insane as the powers speeding up the Climate Engineering process. North Carolina is hugely naive. I am sharing wherever I can. It is definitely being scheduled for an especially cold winter here with chemicals on top of flu shots and the increasing cost of groceries.

  6. Dennie says:

    This was one of this morning's topics on KQED's Forum program:  It was a very good program and a number of people spoke who pulled no punches about the fact of global heating, which is what many want to call it, because, as they rightfully said, the term "global warming" does not fully convey what is really happening out there…. speaking of which, I spent the morning pruning and cleaning up in the front garden, then had to come back into the house at 2:30 this afternoon, when the wind began really gusting.  When I went back out around 3:30, it was so hot out there between the gusts of wind that I'm sure it's in the 90s.  It is roasting hot out there…. I noticed leaves blowing off the flowering plum trees and I'm sure it's because they're getting zapped from the high ultraviolet and infrared.  I can't believe anyone who parrots the bullshit that the holes in the ozone layer are "recovering," when it's really just an atmospheric "shell game" in a world-wide tournament of geoengineering "whack-a-mole;" more holes just show up elsewhere.  How stupid can people get–??

  7. Duane Martin says:

    Thanks, Dane for keeping us current on the 'real news" and its implications – which reminds us of an HG Wells quote: "Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe."  Today, we had a young man come by promoting "smart homes."  He was not aware of the dangers of 5G, though he was somewhat familiar with "geoengineering" and the changes in weather in Florida. We invited him into our home and brought geoengineering onto our computer.  He'd never heard of all the info you were explaining, and was very interested in telling his friends all about it.  We gave him your flyers, too.

    Here is a link to an event everyone may want to watch:    5G crisis awareness and accountability being brought to you by  and the presenters are Sayer Ji and Josh del Sol.

    We thought you would like to know that this is being done.

    Here we go into another week sounding the alarm!!

  8. David says:

    Look at this absolute nonsense. It still utterly baffles me how this stuff is published and the truth is buried deeper and deeper everyday in mainstream media.

  9. JR says:

    Hey guys and girls, ladies and men from Southwest, New Mexico USA. The evil scum are really going at it and berserk wacko's like nobodies business with SAG/SRM. The rain clouds are coming in from all directions and these lowlifes get up there and tear them up to shreds. They are truly Gremlins. This order of what they are doing is really out of order with the one and only Order for this earth and the whole universe. How they justify themselves behooves us we all know. They do justify their evil working for their father who loves evil works. Hang in there folks, God knows all, He says Vengeance belongs to Him. His Peace with all here….His good stewards.

    nope, no-one wants to know

    just carry on in their blind way

    me – not just watching climate  – living amongst numpties

    essex stinks of undigested sewage cos damn women can't clean their toilets with elbow grease they have to dump bleach down it 

    then they cover themselves in perfume so they can't smell it

    i try to talk to neighbours, parish councillors, chelmsford councillors

    haven't got a clue – talk about human faeces – and they get embarressed

    i can't cope with fools and idiots – so caught up in their nihilistic way of life – can't see the wood or the trees or the skies

    stupid, stupid people – get them to look up – can't do that they might have to do something

    stupid parish councillor said – ooh don't talk about what goes down the toilet

    my parents generation who fought in the last european war were the last of the people who had a little clue about how dishonest authorities are

    smug and blind the rest of them

    that's why many of us oldens voted to leave the gravy train of the eu

    our industries have been moved to other countries using eu money

    our agriculture became 'the common agriculture' of europe so now we get most of our food from europe – stuff that's not ripened – put in cold store – not picked biodynamically

    our waters have been trawled by spanish ships – our fishing fleets are nearly gone

    any food grown here is under fleece

    we have been sucked dry my friends

    any ordinary english person with their brain in gear knows this but they won't let us leave

    we are run by people with their hands in our pockets

    i have no hopes for us – sorry – wish i did – being in contact with you all has been such a relief for me, surrounded by numpties

    small moments of joy – had a visit from a shrew – for days runs around inside and eats dinner – wake up in the night and hear it crunching – maybe on a wood louse – then when its cleared my house for me it goes back into the garden 

    or watching a single mason bee flying in and out of small hole in door frame – making a room to lay one egg then covering up the outside with something yellow 

    now those are the neighbours i like

    taking only what they need – going quietly about their business – well the shrew squeaks sometimes

    or the birds knocking on the window cos the foods run out

    what joy nature gives me – where the hell did these humans come from

    love to you all in this crazy world

      Penny:  Thanks for your update from England.  It’s not much better on this side of the pond.  Globalism and the Internationalists have wrecked the USA.  And we have Epstein (Wexner revelations) that go far deeper and global than only the human trafficking. Perhaps Prince Andrew could spill some beans?  Yes, nature is the true entertainment.  Without the entertainment matrix that besots modern minds, subsistence peoples studied nature. It was fun and food.  Granted, it was not all fun and games.  Unfortunately, reality is now an abstraction.  But reality is rapidly morphing.  Soon enough the perfect storm will be in on us.  Then your brain dead types will wake up too late.  Thanks for your post and it’s interesting content.

    • 'a' simple horseman says:

      "Small moments of joy". It has a nice ring to it. One we once heard often. Penny, thank you for your contribution. It's folks like you that know "oh so much" and still can see the natural life that surrounds us that keep me grounded and calmed by knowing "I am not the only one left that sees these things". Seems like we both have "good neighbors". Thank you for the smiles in these troubled times.

    Impressive booth and tabling efforts by ALL the dedicated activists shown, as requires  vast time & energy to stay with public venues in increasing stress / weather implosions combined w/ added censorship. Removal of the  FB " like " button is a big clue , deep & dark  state unable to keep up with mass awakenings. Trump Admin. keeps tossing environment care under the rug.  Recent CA 2 quake , China Lake conducted GPS "tests' and EMF, scalar, etc fried the bees own GPS and succumb per seizure, zap.  Bad enough alum.  w/ geo-e damage. Another hit for crop/orchards as swarms die with colony collapse combo with GPS jam drill  exotic weapon  testing. So, any wonder our heart cells also being  further compromised w/ nano,  like our brains.  Witnessing a systematic decrease in all things labeled protective or safety. Dumping rat poison is a huge clue folks- entire circle of life being shut down. The REAL  rats in DC , Hollywood, Disney, etc.  will scramble  with Epstein arrest, and he is not a leader , just wealthy enough to garner possible shielding- if he names others.  Why must so many  still CHOOSE look away  as cowards? Intense facts Dane, and Hawaii ablaze should slap a few more out of  deep stupor.  Fantastic trailer on documentary film  'The Dimming", it is a stand alone in and of itself ! Thanks for ALL of your  relentless sacrificing 24/7 to manifest , MSM should be so embarrassed on their  epic failures by the day.  Congrats on the launch, now  under way.

      Lori, thank you for the compliment on all of our behalf that set up a booth and tend it. If my guess is right, my booth pictured this week was #72 set up and take down in 2 years and 3 months. I think Laura Kozicki has a smart looking booth. So much so that I think I'll get some flowers for my own booth(grin). Hey, I like flowers, sorry I didn't think of it myself.

    "Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said Thursday that the global economy could suffer “unthinkable” damage if the White House and Congress fail to raise the federal debt limit".

    This reminds me of what happened after the Fukushima disaster. The level of radiation spiked beyond what had previously been set as safe, so the safe level was simply raised above the spiked level.

    Like William S. Burroughs said – "… our leaders are certifiably insane, or worse".


  14. Pete says:

    Thanks once again Dane for lots of info and another powerful broadcast.

    I come across a website today which clearly sells weather modification, of course as a good thing, but how can it ever be a good thing to interfere with Earth's natural systems! But certainly more confirmation the technology exists and this company was founded in 1961. I would presume the military has many contractors working with them carrying out insanity for their weather warfare purposes!

  15. Andrew from scotland says:

    My 278th email, titled 'Climate Chaos within 18 months. Fake clouds / Prince Charles /  HAARP earthquakes.

    When will they lob 200 nukes down volcano cones to initiate the 2 year nuclear volcanic winter to refreeze the Arctic (and Antarctic)? This has nothing to do with a nuclear war, although that could be used as a distraction.

    The ongoing intensive, toxic (and therefore extremely profitable for those companies whose business model relies on disease and ill health) geoengineering and atmospheric spraying has delayed the nuclear option by over 6 years. However, because it is a covert operation, the general public has carried on with 'business as usual' and nothing has been achieved to prevent climate catastrophe and our extinction.

    Global sea ice extent continues at minimum recorded, and well below the super El Nino year of 2016.

    Australia is considering "Fake clouds and shade cloth in $444m save the reef plan". The concept is to create shade with clouds, mist, fog, and/or sea surface films to protect corals. 

    The depth of the earthquake swarms around California tend to confirm the suggestion in my last email (277) that magma was rising through fault lines/drill points. Earthquake depths of minus 1.4km means 1.4km above sea level, thus well up volcano cones/fracture lines.

    The recent earthquakes near Australia and Indonesia have direct correlation to HAARP activity from Australia. 

    Prince Charles warns Commonwealth leaders that we have 18 months to save the world. Unfortunately and depending on my definition of 'Climate Chaos', I may have to shorten my timescale. 

    • penny waters says:

      dear andrew 

      i get your drift mate re nukes and volcanos but what about what we have been doing to this thin crust we live on

      thinned by digging up stuff needed for the high fliers but also there are big holes mate, from the oil removed from the limestone caves where it used to be found!

      pumping out the oil at the bottom by floating it on water (so that's where much of our water has gone!!) has left slightly acidic water in alkaline caves – the biggest sinkholes are waiting to happen!! don't want to help them mate

      although where will it all end

      'Climate Despair' Is Making People Give Up on Life. It's super painful to be a human being right now at this point in history." 
      by Mike Pearl –
      Jul 11 2019

      In the summer of 2015—the warmest year on record at the time—it was the literal heat that got to Meg Ruttan Walker, a 37-year-old former teacher in Kitchener, Ontario. "Summers have been stressful to me since having my son," said Ruttan Walker, who is now an environmental activist. "It's hard to enjoy a season that's a constant reminder that the world is getting warmer." 

      "I think my anxiety just reached a peak," Ruttan Walker continued. It felt like there was nowhere to go, and although she had spoken to her primary care doctor about anxiety, she hadn't sought help with her mental health. Suddenly, she was contemplating self-harm. "Though I don't think I would have hurt myself, I didn't know how to live with the fear of… the apocalypse, I guess? My son was home with me and I had to call my friend over to watch him because I couldn't even look at him without breaking down," Ruttan Walker said. She eventually checked herself into an overnight mental health facility.

    VSF: This Wiki report relates to the plan to drop 1.5 tons of rat poison on this preserve ecosystem. Total madness!

    [The sea around the Farallon Islands was used as a] Nuclear waste dump

    In the above map the approximate locations of two major nuclear waste dumping sites, according to a 1980 United States Environmental Protection Agency report, are indicated.
    From 1946 to 1970, the sea around the Farallones was used as a nuclear dumping site for radioactive waste under the authority of the Atomic Energy Commission at a site known as the Farallon Island Nuclear Waste Dump. Most of the dumping took place before 1960, and all dumping of radioactive wastes by the United States was terminated in 1970. 

    By then, 47,500 containers (55-gallon steel drums) had been dumped in the vicinity, with a total estimated radioactive activity of 14,500 Ci. The materials dumped were mostly laboratory materials containing traces of contamination. Much of the radioactivity had decayed by 1980.[42]
    Forty-four thousand containers were dumped at 37°37′N 123°17′W, and another 3,500 at 37°38′N 123°08′W.[42]
    The exact location of the containers and the potential hazard the containers pose to the environment are unknown.[43] According to the EPA, attempts to remove the barrels would likely produce greater risk than leaving them undisturbed.[42][dead link]
    Waste containers were shipped to Hunters Point Shipyard, then loaded onto barges for transportation to the Farallones. Containers were weighted with concrete. Those that floated were sometimes shot with rifles to sink them.[44]
    In January 1951, the highly radioactive hull of USS Independence, which was used in Operation Crossroads and then loaded with barrels of radioactive waste, was scuttled in the area.[45]

    • Paul Vonharnish says:

      Thanks again Susan for your excellent posts.  For those who are still able >>> consider the manpower and energy resources squandered on this operation alone.  Observe the number of ships, aircraft, exposed men, and support vessels.  Also consider these two nuclear detonations were popcorn farts compared to subsequent nuclear tests by the United States and Soviet Union.

      I recommend viewing the entire film, as it offers clear insight into the twisted minds of those we need to dethrone and imprison…

      This is happening almost quite literally in my front yard.  The news has been in the local papers a whole lot lately.  Yes, we have a nuclear waste dump out there off the Farallons (which can be seen on a clear day out in the ocean to the west of the Golden Gate), from our wonderful academic-research military-industrial nuclear-medicine-and-weapons ghouls who somehow thought dumping radioactive waste in the ocean was a good idea– "Damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead!!"  What else?

    Dane, I don't know who chooses the thumb nails each week for the GAN posting, but, this week is a dandy one for sure. "Where's the rest of the should be outer circular(counter clockwise) 'curl' on the north side of the circular weather pattern shown?!" The size of those anomalous and un-natural "weather patterns" are really starting to kick into high gear, "globally". What once was only deployed to ravage smaller countries to be over thrown is now being deployed globally at a magnitude that will rear its ugly head sooner than will be comfortable. The first world countries are now getting a taste of their own medicine. They're rapidly killing our food stocks people!! Globally! It's pretty easy math if one cares enough to investigate. What once worked quite well on small countries is now be deployed on a scale of "biblical proportions". And it's all "engineered". That fact totally sucks! It wouldn't be so bad if we a humans weren't taking all life down with us, (just sayin)…….

  20. Star Messenger says:

    Dane, when you mentioned in this week's broadcast that your web site was "demoted" from its top spot by Google my "ears perked up".

    I had heard that Zuckerberg and Facebook were "fronts" for the CIA, DARPA, and other "snoop" organizations, so I looked for a source and found it.

    This "report/dossier" was just published today, July 13, 2019, and is something you should read.  Your fears/suspicions are well-founded, in that, Facebook/Zuckerberg are indeed inventions of the CIA and DARPA.  But the depth of their evil is almost beyond belief.  Let me start by saying that Zuckerberg is a complete fraud, thief, and should be stripped of all his assets and locked up behind bars for what he has done and is still doing.  According to this report, Mark Greenberg (alias Mark Zuckerberg) did not write a single line of Facebook's source code and is incapable of even running a McDonald's.

    But enough of this prologue.  Read the dossier for yourself.  As they say, "Read it and weep".  But don't weep.  Instead, rejoice in knowing the truth.  Cheers!

    • Dennie says:

      We know that "Zuckerberg" stole the ideas for Facebook from his buds, the Winkelvosses, while at Harvard and that he's a gullible idiot (believes, among other things probably, that all diseases can be eradicated in the next 25 years) therefore showing his lack of ability to think logically, but this kiss-and-tell "insider" info from a "former lover" sounds amazingly like the one that came about about Eric Schmidt, i.e., more likely it's some kind of anti-Deep State counterintel hit piece.  I mean, it's possible, but like with "Sam Carana," and "Tyler Durden" from Zerohedge, the "former lovers" here are likely the creation of a coalition of Counter Deep-State would-be assassins.  Does it matter?  More to the point, is the pen truly mightier than the sword?  Most Uhmerukunz, I'd say, think not, at least when it comes to imagining themselves as rich as their High-Tech Heroes….

    'Completely Terrifying': Study Warns Carbon-Saturated Oceans Headed Toward Tipping Point That Could Unleash Mass Extinction Event
    "Once we're over the threshold…you're dealing with how the Earth works, and it goes on its own ride."
    by Julia Conley, staff writer
    … MIT geophysics professor Daniel Rothman released new data on Monday showing that carbon levels today could be fast approaching a tipping point threshold that could trigger extreme ocean acidification similar to the kind that contributed to the Permian–Triassic mass extinction that occurred about 250 million years ago.
    Rothman's new research comes two years after he predicted that a mass extinction event could take place at the end of this century. Since 2017, he has been working to understand how life on Earth might be wiped out due to increased carbon in the oceans.
    "If we push the Earth system too far, then it takes over and determines its own response—past that point there will be little we can do about it."
    —Timothy Lenton, University of Exeter
    Rothman created a model in which he simulated adding carbon dioxide to oceans, finding that when the gas was added to an already-stable marine environment, only temporary acidification occurred.
    When he continuously pumped carbon into the oceans, however, as humans have been doing at greater and greater levels since the late 18th century, the ocean model eventually reached a threshold which triggered what MIT called "a cascade of chemical feedbacks," or "excitation," causing extreme acidification and worsening the warming effects of the originally-added carbon.
    Over the past 540 million years, these chemical feedbacks have occurred at various times, Rothman noted.

    • Dennie says:

      You know, you're shouting this from the rooftops but no one can hear you, nobody's paying attention to what's happening to this planet, nobody has a clue what to do to stop the heating short of stopping every single polluting, heat-producing activity (no, they actually really just want to do MORE) and nobody cares. 

    • Dennie says:

      But at least someone does.   This was in my in box today:

      "Researchers at a Swiss University studied the impact of reforestation and found that it could drastically mitigate the amount of carbon in the atmosphere.

      The team led by scientists at ETH Zurich concluded that our planet could support nearly 2.5 billion more acres of forests, which would help store 200 gigatons of carbon. This could be up to two-thirds of all historic emissions!

      More conservative estimates say forests could store one-third of all historic emissions, but either way – this would have huge climate impacts. Reforestation needs to be part of the climate solution, and it will also help support wildlife and restore our lands.

      The climate solutions that will give our planet relief aren’t unattainable – just look at what is possible with some innovation and commitment. The current administration isn’t up to the task, so it’ll be up to climate champions in Congress to provide the leadership we desperately need in order to get ahead.

      Forest restoration is just one of the long-term solutions we’ll need to reverse the alarming trends that are threatening our planet."

      Yes, we have a complex multi-faceted problem that needs to be attacked from all sides.  Just saying this thing or that thing needs to be done means you don't "get it" and just want a Magic Formula for fixing a long-standing complex problem that mainly means a sea change in human consciousness before we can stop the runaway train.

    How the CIA made Google:
    Inside the secret network behind mass surveillance, endless war, and Skynet—part 1 / By Nafeez Ahmed / The Highlands Forum

    … how the United States intelligence community funded, nurtured and incubated Google as part of a drive to dominate the world through control of information. Seed-funded by the NSA and CIA, Google was merely the first among a plethora of private sector start-ups co-opted by US intelligence to retain ‘information superiority.’
    The origins of this ingenious strategy trace back to a secret Pentagon-sponsored group, that for the last two decades has functioned as a bridge between the US government and elites across the business, industry, finance, corporate, and media sectors. The group has allowed some of the most powerful special interests in corporate America to systematically circumvent democratic accountability and the rule of law to influence government policies, as well as public opinion in the US and around the world. The results have been catastrophic: NSA mass surveillance, a permanent state of global war, and a new initiative to transform the US military into Skynet.
    … Established under the Clinton administration, consolidated under Bush, and firmly entrenched under Obama, this bipartisan network of mostly neoconservative ideologues sealed its dominion inside the US Department of Defense (DoD) by the dawn of 2015, through the operation of an obscure corporate entity outside the Pentagon, but run by the Pentagon.
    In 1999, the CIA created its own venture capital investment firm, In-Q-Tel, to fund promising start-ups that might create technologies useful for intelligence agencies. But the inspiration for In-Q-Tel came earlier, when the Pentagon set up its own private sector outfit.
    Known as the ‘Highlands Forum,’ this private network has operated as a bridge between the Pentagon and powerful American elites outside the military since the mid-1990s. Despite changes in civilian administrations, the network around the Highlands Forum has become increasingly successful in dominating US defense policy.
    Giant defense contractors like Booz Allen Hamilton and [SAIC] Science Applications International Corporation are sometimes referred to as the ‘shadow intelligence community’ due to the revolving doors between them and government, and their capacity to simultaneously influence and profit from defense policy. But while these contractors compete for power and money, they also collaborate where it counts. The Highlands Forum has for 20 years provided an off the record space for some of the most prominent members of the shadow intelligence community to convene with senior US government officials, alongside other leaders in relevant industries.

    The Highlands Forum
    … New Scientist magazine (paywall) has compared the Highlands Forum to elite meetings like “Davos, Ditchley and Aspen,” describing it as “far less well known, yet… arguably just as influential a talking shop.” Regular Forum meetings bring together “innovative people to consider interactions between policy and technology. Its biggest successes have been in the development of high-tech network-based warfare.”
    … The Highlands Group website also reveals that Highlands is partnered with one of the most powerful defense contractors in the United States. Highlands is “supported by a network of companies and independent researchers,” including “our Highlands Forum partners for the past ten years at SAIC; and the vast Highlands network of participants in the Highlands Forum.”
    SAIC stands for the US defense firm, Science Applications International Corporation, which changed its name to Leidos in 2013, operating SAIC as a subsidiary. SAIC/Leidos is among the top 10 largest defense contractors in the US, and works closely with the US intelligence community, especially the NSA. According to investigative journalist Tim Shorrock, the first to disclose the vast extent of the privatization of US intelligence with his seminal book Spies for Hire, SAIC has a “symbiotic relationship with the NSA: the agency is the company’s largest single customer and SAIC is the NSA’s largest contractor.”
    … Captain “Dick” O’Neill, the founding president of the Highlands Forum, is Richard Patrick O’Neill, who after his work in the Navy joined the DoD. He served his last post as deputy for strategy and policy in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Defense for Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence, before setting up Highlands.
