  • You've just succeeded in doing something  that no person has accomplished,  

  • and that's infiltrate the U.S. government's  secret facility located in the Nevada desert,  

  • the mysterious black site known as Area 51. You look the part, having spent the last year  

  • studying and then stealing the identity of your  uncle Clarence, a man that works at the facility  

  • and who once said to you, “I can't tell you what  I do kid, but I can tell you this, you wouldn't  

  • believe me if I did tell you.” And now you're in

  • You come to a door deep within the facilityhaving navigated a labyrinth of corridors.  

  • Above the door is a sign, and in bold red letters  it reads, RESTRICTED. Your heart is beating fast,  

  • your hands are trembling as you swipe the ID  card. The door buzzes and with a swooshing  

  • sound it moves to the side. “Oh, my good God,” you think,  

  • This is what they are hiding from us.” Ok, so that might sound like something from  

  • a James Bond movie, and we imagine long before  you got to that door you'd have been arrested or  

  • killed. But what if you really could get that farWhat would you see? You'd certainly see something  

  • surprising, that's for sure, because there's a  good reason the USA keeps its black sites secret

  • Before we tell you where the billions of dollars  go, let's first look at the history of what's  

  • sometimes referred to as the black budget. So, what we know is that the U.S military  

  • is constantly involved in secret research  projects. You won't be surprised to learn  

  • that as you watch this video the military  is running all kinds of covert operations

  • If you listen to guys like the whistleblower  named Edward Snowden, you'd hear that many  

  • billions of dollars are spent on these operationsThese projects are incredibly secret, so much so  

  • that they are often hidden from various elected  officials. They are as black as black gets

  • However, time passes and things that were  secret before, become common knowledge.  

  • Take for example the bunch of scientists and  military men that got together during the  

  • second world war. They wanted to build a nuclear  bomb, and so around 130,000 people got to work  

  • under what was known as the Manhattan Project. The black sites where the research and development  

  • took place were located not just in the U.S., but  also in Canada and the UK. It was a huge project,  

  • and something like $2 billion dollars was spent  on it. That's about $25 billion in today's money

  • So, that's a good example of the black budgetbut you've gotta ask, if they were capable of  

  • producing world-destroying weapons around  80 years ago, what are they capable of now

  • Well, let's first go back to the 1980s, a  decade in which a man named Ronald Reagan  

  • was the president of the U.S. When he sat  in the big chair the black budget tripled.  

  • We found a declassified CIA document that  explained what some of that cash was spent on

  • That document explained that even congress wasn't  party to what happened in some of the programs.  

  • It seems that the only rule about the black  budget is you don't talk about the black budget,  

  • but thankfully we have that  thing called declassification

  • Under Regan, the military had one secret project  calledThe Defense Communication's Island Sun”.  

  • It wasn't all that high-tech, and just involved  the military making special lead-lined trucks  

  • that could transport top brass generals in the  event of a nuclear attack by the Soviet Union

  • Getting bombed by the Soviets was what  you might call a top priority threat,  

  • and that's why billions were spent on something  called operation Milstar, a project consisting  

  • of creating a massive communications network if  those nuclear bombs should ever fall on the U.S. 

  • Maybe that's not strange enough for you, but  we've only just started. Be patient dear viewer,  

  • you don't know what's coming. The U.S has built some pretty incredible  

  • secret weapons with the budget, with one being  the very odd-looking Northrop Tacit Blue plane.

  • This plane, that was sometimes  nicknamed theAlien School Bus”,  

  • was called a low-observable stealth surveillance  aircraft. It was very hard to detect by enemy  

  • radar even when very close to a battlefield. Even though it looked a bit like a flying  

  • white chocolate bar, the plane was extremely  high-tech when it was built in the early 80s.  

  • The thing is, you wouldn't have known  anything about it. That's because when  

  • the military started theBattlefield Surveillance  Aircraft-Experimental programit was top secret

  • It was developed and built at Area 51 and flown  first by a test pilot named Richard G. Thomas.  

  • And no, he didn't get shot down. He lived to the  ripe old age of 76. You only got to hear about the  

  • plane in 1996, when information about it became  declassified. We learned then that the cost of  

  • building that ugly thing was over two billion  when you take into account the entire project

  • After hearing that, you might wonder what  concoctions are currently flying above your  

  • head. What do billions get you these days? Well, we can tell that some black projects  

  • relate to what are calledpsychological  operationsor Psy Ops for short

  • These very covert operations might sound like  something from an outlandish YouTube conspiracy  

  • theory video, but we can tell you that they are  very real. You can see declassified CIA documents  

  • that tell you that cash is spent on getting into  the heads of people, whether at home or abroad

  • At home, the CIA wants the  people to think a certain way,  

  • say about invading a foreign country. It wants the  people on-side and it wants the soldiers onside,  

  • and so by disseminating information it  wins the hearts and minds of the people

  • Social media is where the new infowar is taking  place, and many countries right now are running  

  • their own propaganda campaigns there. You probably  don't know this, but there is white, grey,  

  • and black propaganda when used for psychological  operations. White is basically true information;  

  • grey is kinda true, and black is outright deceit. What the CIA is up to right now in regard to  

  • PSYOps we just can't say, because it is top  secret. But trust us, something will be going  

  • down, either at home or abroad. The CIA has  even been known to infiltrate people's TVs,  

  • so you might wonder if you've ever  viewed any CIA-backed information online

  • It's not a secret that it happens; we just  aren't privy to the details. The Department  

  • of Defense even has its own description of  psychological warfare. It goes like this

  • The planned use of propaganda and other  psychological actions having the primary  

  • purpose of influencing the opinions, emotionsattitudes, and behavior of hostile foreign groups  

  • in such a way as to support the  achievement of national objectives.” 

  • The CIA has also had a hand in Hollywoodshaping what we see on our screen in the  

  • interest of national security. Secretly the Pentagon has backed  

  • over a 1,000 movies and has had a hand in  developing lots of titles you've seen on TV.  

  • You can now find some of this information  through theUS Freedom of Information  

  • Act”, and if you look at that, you'll see CIA  backed movies such as Transformers, Flight 93,  

  • Iron Man, and The Terminator. It's all about  winning hearts and minds, and it isn't cheap

  • It doesn't just create, it also omits. For  instance, when the CIA saw the script for the  

  • movie calledMeet The Parentsstarring Robert De  Niro, it said hey, we don't want to see any agency  

  • torture manuals. When Marlon Brando was going to  release a movie about the Iran-Contra scandal,  

  • he was outbid on the rights by a film studioIt's now thought the CIA was behind this,  

  • that the film studio was a front  company that was created by the CIA

  • Then you had Operation Mockingbird during  the Cold War. The covert operation involved  

  • the CIA creating fronts that appeared to people  like magazines or cultural organizations. The  

  • operation also included infiltrating popular  news media such as The Washington Post,  

  • The New York Times and Newsweek. The worrying thing is, if you believe  

  • what some researchers now tell us, the program  has never officially been discontinued. We  

  • just don't know what's going on since how  the CIA influences media and film is covert,  

  • but it's likely that hearts and minds are  being steered in certain directions today

  • So, we must remember that a large part of the  black budget, many billions in fact, goes towards  

  • what we call non-military projects. Much of this  involves surveillance, and that surveillance  

  • is done in the name of national security. In 2013, news media talked about a $52.6  

  • billion black budget, saying then that while the  government doesn't deny the money is being spent,  

  • it doesn't ever say how it's being spentBack then the National Intelligence Program  

  • comprised 107,035 employees working  in 16 different spy agencies, so a lot  

  • of the cash went towards paying those people. You might have heard of one of those employees,  

  • an intelligence contractor named Edward  Snowden. He blew the whistle on various  

  • global surveillance programs and then  had to get the hell out of America

  • It's a long story, but in the interests of this  show we can tell you that black ops run by the U.S  

  • government, sometimes with UK intelligenceinvolves a lot of spying. Spying on people  

  • of interest, but also on folks just like youAccording to the Washington Post, that received  

  • information from Snowden, 90 percent of the  spying was on what it called ordinary Americans

  • When asked about all that spying and where all  the black budget cash goes, the Office of the  

  • Director of National Intelligence had this to say: “Our budgets are classified as they could provide  

  • insight for foreign intelligence services  to discern our top national priorities,  

  • capabilities and sources and methods that allow  us to obtain information to counter threats.” 

  • Ok then, we'll have to look elsewhere. It's estimated that around 50 percent of the  

  • black budget goes to the National Security Agencywith the people that work there mainly being  

  • tasked to develop surveillance technology and then  implement it. But what about the rest of the cash

  • Well, first we should tell you that the black  budget was dramatically increased during the  

  • Reagan years; under George Bush it doubled and it  was increased a lot under the present president

  • When Bush was president something  called Program Element 0603891c  

  • received almost two hundred million dollars, which  is quite the chunk of money. Since the project was  

  • secret, no one really knew what it was aboutalthough analysts that studied the budget said  

  • it involved creating space weapons. Ok, so now it gets a bit weird

  • While people that work at various black sites  don't tell us what they do, many of them wear  

  • uniforms with patches on them. The patches likely  designate what kind of work they do. One guy  

  • managed to get photos of 75 different patches. Some of the designs featured demons,  

  • scantily clad warriors, dragons releasing bombswizards, and skunks firing laser beams into the  

  • air. Another featured a dragon whose wings were  the American flag. It had the Earth held in  

  • its giant claws. The people wearing that patch  worked for the National Reconnaissance Office

  • Make of that what you will, but it's unlikely  that the patches don't represent anything at all.  

  • The Pentagon was contacted by the New  York Times and asked about those patches,  

  • but as usual, it was tight-lipped. If you had the black budget document  

  • in front of you, much of it would be covered  with the word classified. But we did manage  

  • to see the names of some projects on a recent  budget. The problem is that it's hard to work  

  • out what the project is about from the name. An example is the projecttractor hip.” That  

  • was $16.4 million that went to the armybut you might wonder what a tractor hip is.  

  • Then there was the projectChalk Eagle”. That  went to the navy and cost a whopping $534 million

  • Some other names were Retract Juniper, Link  Evergreen, Pilot Fish, Chalk Coral, Link Plumeria,  

  • Retract Maple, Cobra Judy, and Tractor Cage. Some of the latest projects are thought to  

  • be space weapons programs, but no one is really  sure. When the director of national intelligence  

  • was asked recently, he replied with this: “Beyond the disclosure of the NIP top-line figure,  

  • there will be no other disclosures of currently  classified NIP budget information because such  

  • disclosures could harm national security.”  NIP stands for National Intelligence Program

  • So, what's going on right now at all those black  sites, we can't say for sure, but we think after  

  • watching this video you have a pretty good idea. Now you need to watch, “What Happens At & What  

  • Do We Know About Area 51?” and then,  “Evidence That Aliens Have Made Contact.”

You've just succeeded in doing something  that no person has accomplished,
