HAARP: The High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program


HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon?



"Seldom does a book become the seminal voice of reason when pitted against dangerous conspiracies that advance the agenda of special interests. Jerry E. Smith's HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon of the Conspiracy does just that. With utmost logic, it paints an accurate picture of governmental technology run amok in its attempts to spread American hegemony at any cost - perhaps even including planet Earth."

The High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP)

is the largest and most powerful Department of Defense (DoD) facility of its kind in the world -- just what kind of facility it is, however, is the subject of heated debate.

The government says it is a pure science research station, one intended to increase our understanding of the upper atmosphere. Detractors are not convinced.

Some researchers think HAARP is a prototype for a "Star Wars" weapons system. It may be an over-the-horizon type radar ... or it may exist to destroy incoming ICBMs … or perhaps to fry out the electronics of enemy spy satellites … or it might be used to disrupt enemy radio communications. Researchers think it might be intended to do these things because those abilities are all described in the original patents that the HAARP antenna array is based on. The folks running HAARP deny any connection between HAARP and those patents, however. This, naturally, has opened them up to charges of cover-up and conspiracy. It’s not the only thing they seem to be lying about, either.

Once one gets the idea that the government (or civilian scientists working under government contract) is lying about something, the sky is pretty much the limit in speculations about what it is they are lying about. And with HAARP the sky is just the beginning!

Many researchers have looked into what HAARP is really intended for – and some have come up with some very strange sounding things! Some think it will be used to control the weather … others say it could be used to set off volcanoes, or trigger earthquakes. Still others see its potential for “Wining the Hearts and Minds” of our enemies by beaming emotions or commands directly into their brains. And some few even speculate that it will be used by the New World Order to take over the world by projecting holographic images into the sky while beaming thoughts directly into our heads, telling us to accept the new "god" of their design. And still others think it is part of a planetary defense system to protect us from invading aliens from outer space. And there are even wilder ideas about what “they” want to do with HAARP!

I began writing my 1998 book HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon of the Conspiracy with the intent to sort out truth from fiction in the many claims about what HAARP could or couldn’t do. I quickly learned that HAARP was but the tip of a very nasty iceberg.

I soon learned more about the down side of electromagnetic (radio frequency) technologies than I ever wanted to know. And that things are far worse in the Military-Industrial-Educational Complex than even I, as a “peacenik” from the ‘60s, imagined. My book became an examination of two major questions: what is the fundamental flaw in how we fund and conduct science, and how can a democracy defend itself from its own military and covert intelligence agencies?





The HAARP project in Alaska is one of the most controversial projects ever undertaken by the U.S. Government. This futuristic technology is everything from super-beam weapon to world-wide mind control device. HAARP has many possible scientific and military applications, from raising a planetary defense shield to peering deep into the earth. Jerry Smith gives us the history of the HAARP project and explains how it can be used as an awesome weapon of destruction. Smith exposes a covert military project and the web of conspiracies behind it and leads the reader down a trail of solid evidence into ever deeper and scarier conspiracy theories. By the end of the book, Smith convinces the reader that HAARP represents the ultimate in science out of control. It could be the most dangerous device ever created. The Star Wars future is now!
