2014: The Street Car Conspiracy. How General Motors Deliberately Destroyed Public Transit

by Bradford Snell The electric streetcar, contrary to Van Wilkin’s incredible naïve whitewash, did not die a natural death: General Motors killed it. GM killed it by employing a host of anti-competitive devices which, like National City Lines, debased rail transit and promoted auto sales. This is not about a “plot” hatch by wild-eyed corporate rogues, but rather about a consummate business strategy crafted by Alfred P. Sloan, Jr., the MIT-trained genius behind General Motors, to expand auto sales and maximize profits by eliminating streetcars. In 1922, according to GM’s own files, Sloan established a special unit within the corporation which was charged, among other things, with the task of replacing America’s electric railways with cars, trucks and buses. A year earlier, in 1921, GM lost $65 million, leading Sloan to conclude that the auto market was saturated, that those who desired cars already owned them, and that the […] Read More

1989: An Introduction to Free Energy Physics

By Bruce DePalma 12 October 1989 It should be appreciated here that the ideas which are presented are coming from the mind of one man. The mind of this one man is permeated by the sea of space, which is the repository of all knowledge. What we see is what we get is the substance of this essay. Space, i.e. the vacuum, is filled with a sea of particles. I call them Psions. The Psion flux is responsible for the Brownian motions and “zero-point energy” fluctuations. The isotropic Psion flux moves at the speed of light. The Psions interact with matter only slightly — enough to cause Brownian motions and heat transfer. The Psion as an elemental particle principle is not perfect, it contains the defect of weight or mass which makes momentum transfer possible. Its principal property is a memory. That is, the Psion remembers the material space […] Read More

2005: The Long Emergency

What’s going to happen as we start running out of cheap gas to guzzle? By JAMES HOWARD KUNSTLER A few weeks ago, the price of oil ratcheted above fifty-five dollars a barrel, which is about twenty dollars a barrel more than a year ago. The next day, the oil story was buried on page six of the New York Times business section. Apparently, the price of oil is not considered significant news, even when it goes up five bucks a barrel in the span of ten days. That same day, the stock market shot up more than a hundred points because, CNN said, government data showed no signs of inflation Note to clueless nation: Call planet Earth. Carl Jung, one of the fathers of psychology, famously remarked that “people cannot stand too much reality.” What you’re about to read may challenge your assumptions about the kind of world we […] Read More

2005: Energy Information

The Washington Post, Washington Times, Richmond Times Dispatch, Potomac News, Manassas Journal Messenger and other print radio/TV media outlets will not inform you of this information. The post did respond to another letter. After you read the following information, do you wonder why they won’t inform you? To further illustrate how information is suppressed, during September 2004, email was sent to 119 Talk show host. Neglecting automatic responses, one host responded. When I responded to that host, no response. During 2004-2005 I sent more than 600 email and letters concerning Energy Information. Most people did not respond including my Members of Congress. Several email/letters were to local Washington, D.C. Radio/TV stations; WTOP, WMAL, WJLA NBC and WTTG Need further proof that information is suppressed? See this web site document. You might find the 1980 letter, near the bottom, to an inventor from the (U.S). Commissioner of Patents interesting. The […] Read More

1996: Free Energy – The N-Machine!!

Scientists Claim To Tap The Free Energy Of Space by Richard Walters (“For the People” magazine) Bruce DePalma and his N-MACHINE and other experiments have been mentioned by Richard Hoagland in the video “Hoagland’s Mars Vol 2: The U.N. Briefings” Physicist Bruce DePalma has a 100-kilowatt generator, which he invented, sitting in his garage. It could power his whole house, but if he turns it on, the government may confiscate it. Harvard educated DePalma, who taught physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for 15 years, claims that his electrical generator can provide a cheap, inexhaustible, self-sustaining and nonpolluting source of energy, using principles that flout conventional physics and are still not fully understood. His N machine, as it is called, is said to release the “free energy” latent in the space all around us. DePalma views his device as an innovation that could help to end the worlds’ […] Read More

1996: Overhead Power Lines and Electric Fields Can Kill

Perhaps the most dangerous, damaging form of pollution facing Americans every minute of every day is invisible, soundless, and cannot be touched or felt. It is electromagnetic field radiation (EMF) and it is emanating from virtually every single electrical appliance, computer, electric wire, and especially high voltage lines (overhead and buried), which are carrying current. EMF is specifically causing cancer in children and in older adults and may be triggering countless other immune deficiency and psychological diseases and disorders in anyone in close proximity. Make no mistake about it: electric fields are bad news for your health and can be killers. The government of Sweden funded an official, massive study of the effects of electric fields from overhead power lines on 500,000 people over a period of 25 years and found overwhelming evidence that electric fields generated cancer in children at 4 times the normal rate and tripled the […] Read More

1888: William Timmis: Keely Outdone?

An article from 1888 Author Unknown ——————————————————————- This paper is from Scientific American – August 4, 1888 – page 69 ——————————————————————– Keely Outdone? Several newspapers have referred to a new invention by one William Timmis, which, if successful, will revolutionize motive power. The inventor is an unpretentious English mechanic residing in Pittsburg, Pa., who claims to have invented the machine by which untold motive power can be stored or used without the expenditure of fuel. The story goes that he has been engaged for two years in perfecting the invention, and is now negotiating with the government of England, Russia, and the United States for the sale of the right to use his discovery, which, if after examination it proves to be what he claims, will revolutionize the motive powers of the world. He claims to be able to create a pressure of 20,000 pounds per square inch – […] Read More

2009: The Great Ethanol Scam

By Ed Wallace – Fri May 15, 8:08 am ET “Does the average citizen understand what this means? In from 10 to 20 years this country will be dependent entirely upon outside sources for a supply of liquid fuels paying out vast sums yearly in order to obtain supplies of crude oil from Mexico, Russia, and Persia.” — Yale Professor Harold Hibbert, ethanol promoter, 1925 More than one major transportation-based industry in America besides Detroit is on the ropes. For the fourth time in our history the ethanol industry has come undone and is quickly failing nationally. Of course it’s one thing when Detroit collapsed with the economy; after all, that is a truly free-market enterprise and the economy hasn’t been good. But the fact that the ethanol industry is going bankrupt when the only reason we use this additive is a massive government mandate, is outrageous at best. […] Read More

1920s: Hendershot Magnetic Motor

W. Beaty In the 1920’s Lester Hendershot, in working on a new type of aviation compass, stumbled across a method of generating energy. The “Hendershot magnetic motor” made headlines and attracted such big-name investors as Charles Lindberg. Hendershot ran into political difficulties in promoting his device, attempted to take his business to Mexico, and finally faded into obscurity having taken a “couldn’t refuse” payoff to never work on his device again. Hendershot believed that his device was not “perpetual motion”, but instead was tapping into the earth’s magnetic field and rotation for an energy source. The Hendershot Device is a self-acting oscillator. It consists of a pair of large air-core coils in “basket weave” format, hand-made cylindrical capacitors inside the coils, several high-value capacitors, a couple of standard transformers, and a permanent-magnet “buzzer” as a regulator. The two large coils are tuned to resonate together. The device generated an […] Read More
