Since 2004, Seattle attorney Andrew Basiago has claimed that between the ages of seven and twelve, he was a participant in a secret US government program that worked on teleportation and time travel as part of a secret DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) experiment called Project Pegasus, which was a precursor to the Montauk Project and the Philadelphia Experiment.
The program, which began in the 1970s, used children in its experiments because they could adapt well “to the strains of moving between past, present, and future.”
As one of those time-traveling youngsters, Bosiago claimed to have visited Ford’s Theatre five or six times on the night of President Abraham Lincoln’s assassination and was photographed at Gettysburg in 1863.
Basiago claims to have encountered eight different time travel technologies during the course of the project, with the majority of them involving a teleporter based on technical papers allegedly discovered in pioneering mechanical engineer Nikola Tesla’s New York City apartment after his death in January 1943.
The teleporter “consisted of two gray elliptical booms about eight feet tall, separated by about 10 feet, between which a shimmering curtain of what Tesla called ‘radiant energy’ was broadcast,” Basiago says. “Radiant energy is a form of energy that Tesla discovered that is latent and pervasive in the universe and has among its properties the capacity to bend time-space.”
Basiago said each of his visits to the past was different, “like they were sending us to slightly different alternative realities on adjacent timelines. As these visits began to accumulate, I twice ran into myself during two different visits.”
Being sent back in time to the same location and moment, but from separate locations in the present, enabled two of him to be in Ford’s Theatre at the same time in 1865.
“After the first of these two encounters with myself occurred, I was concerned that my cover might be blown,” he recalled. “Unlike the jump to Gettysburg, in which I was clutching a letter to Navy Secretary Gideon Welles to offer me aid and assistance in the event I was arrested, I didn’t have any explanatory materials when I was sent to Ford’s Theatre.”
Basiago’s claims are supported by Alfred Webre, a lawyer specializing in “exopolitics,” or the political implications surrounding an extraterrestrial presence on Earth.
According to Webre, teleportation and time travel have been around for 40 years but have been hoarded by the Defense Department rather than being employed to transport products and services.
Time traveler for president
Andrew Basiago ran for president in 2016. “I have prior knowledge that not only will I run for president,” the Democratic write-in said, “but that during one of the elections — which would have to be between 2016 and 2028, because I’m not running past that — I’m either elected president or vice president.”
A statement on Basiago’s campaign website read: “For 70 years, the US government has been concealing advanced technologies because they might be socially, economically, or technically disruptive in nature. These technologies include the teleportation technology developed by DARPA’s Project Pegasus.”
“They may also include cancer cures. The government should begin a program to declassify and deploy this knowledge. The standard of technical disclosure should be what provides the people the ‘best available technology.’ This will enable the United States to reclaim its mantle as the world’s catalyst of applied science.”
Bosiago did not become president, but his work as a youngster during Project Pegasus provided him with some intriguing insight into the race, as the CIA utilized the technology to find a shortlist of prospective presidents.
“As for Hillary Clinton, I have no data,” Bosiago said in 2016. “I think it is reasonable to infer that were she a future President there would have been a pre-ID of her. As for Trump, I have a vague memory that my father took special note of Trump during an appearance by him on The Phil Donahue Show and might have even commented that he was a future U.S. President.”
It seems that when Basiago’s initial election bid failed that year, space-time fractured and gave us the worst possible timeline, instead. But we still have 8 more years to see the first chrononaut president take office. Fingers crossed.
