Five thousand inventions in limbo and under “secrecy orders” at the US Patent Office

I wrote and posted this article in 2018. I recently revisited it and confirmed how important this information, gathered by Steve Aftergood, is.

For decades, people have been accusing the government of hiding advanced technology. Here we have a serious clue. Something in the record and on the record. It is only a very small piece of the puzzle, but it’s a potent piece, if you’ll stop and think about it.

The world is waking up to censorship of information by the press, by corporations, and by government. Here we have what amounts to a US government POLICY of censoring certain inventions, groundbreaking inventions.

Here is my brief 2018 piece:

How many of these patents, if granted, would be game changers for planet Earth? Who knows?

Buckle up. Here we go.

From FAS (Federation of American Scientists), Secrecy News, Oct. 21, 2010, “Invention Secrecy Still Going Strong,” by Steven Aftergood:

“There were 5,135 inventions that were under secrecy orders at the end of Fiscal Year 2010, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office told Secrecy News last week. It’s a 1% rise over the year before, and the highest total in more than a decade.”

“Under the Invention Secrecy Act of 1951, patent applications on new inventions can be subject to secrecy orders restricting their publication if government agencies believe that disclosure would be ‘detrimental to the national security’.”

“The current list of technology areas that is used to screen patent applications for possible restriction under the Invention Secrecy Act is not publicly available and has been denied under the Freedom of Information Act. (An appeal is pending.)…”

“Most of the listed technology areas are closely related to military applications. But some of them range more widely.”

“Thus, the 1971 list indicates that patents for solar photovoltaic generators were subject to review and possible restriction IF THE PHOTOVOLTAICS WERE MORE THAN 20% EFFICIENT. Energy conversion systems were likewise subject to review and possible restriction IF THEY OFFERED CONVERSION EFFICIENCIES ‘IN EXCESS OF 70-80%’.” (Emphasis is mine.)

“One may fairly ask if disclosure of such technologies could really have been ‘detrimental to the national security,’ or whether the opposite would be closer to the truth. One may further ask what comparable advances in technology may be subject to restriction and non-disclosure today. But no answers are forthcoming, and the invention secrecy system persists with no discernible external review.”

If you’re one of those people who maintains that advanced technology is being held away from the public, here is an overall smoking gun that validates your stance.

And you can see that breakthrough energy tech, which would radically lessen the need for oil, would be on the secrecy-do-not-release list.

What else is on the list? Old Tesla patents, for example?

The US Patent Office is an official chokepoint for the “planned society”—or should we say the “restricted society.”

But this is not to say advanced technology is always shelved or scuttled. The patent applications, in suspended animation at the US Patent Office, can be quietly disclosed, for example, to government researchers engaged in black-budget projects, where the data and the research are turned to “other uses.”

Innovative inventors, who can revolutionize society for the good, incur risks if they submit their patent applications to the State. Getting trapped in limbo, while outright theft of their research occurs, is one of those risks.

On the other hand, if a giant corporation has an invention that deploys the genetic engineering of food crops, and adds millions of tons of toxic pesticides to the environment, its patent application sails through review at the Patent Office…

  1. Any idea that seeks to reduce the use/consumption of Crude Oil or products would affect the value of the U$A $. The value relies on continued high demand. Thus a fall in the value of the U$A $ would be regarded as a National Security issue!????????????????????????

    It should make a lucid person wonder. Wonder about “heroic geniuses” such as the THIRD CLASS patent clerk “Al” Einstein. Why was he spontaneously selected by the kosher media to be foisted upon the weak-minded and gullible public?
    Ditto with the deviant Freud. What did they contribute that put them in the spotlight?

    It should make one wonder about the POWER of the stock market, “corporation capital and it’s POWER to manipulate truth/technology?

    I guess rather than me telling the tale and being attacked by “snowflakes” and other less-than-lucid unwitting sycophants, I’ll let you decide if you want to learn truth;

    When asked how they proposed doing this, he said:

    “At first, by controlling the banking system we were able to control corporation capital. Through this, we acquired total monopoly of the movie industry, the radio networks and the newly developing television media. The printing industry, newspapers, periodicals and technical journals had already fallen into our hands. The richest plum was later to come when we took over the publication of all school materials. Through these vehicles we could mold public opinion to suit our own purposes. The people are only stupid pigs that grunt and squeal the chants we give them, whether they be truth or lies.”

    Thank you Mr. Rappaport, re-posting to various sites…

    Good re-post, Jon. Not sur if I linked this one before, but it’s linked now at

    I have followed the suppression of energy technologies for decades. I have recently learned that the contract to control the patent office is held by a British firm SERCO , said contract being done through the Senior Executive Services (SES). SERCO has it’s fingers in multiple American Defense Industry “pies” You can draw many inferences from this but the main take away for me is that the U.S. is a “captured state” by the BritishZionist interests or the entities above them whose agenda does NOT advance the betterment of our species, indeed it appears to be the opposite.

    This entry was posted in Government Fraud, UFO.
    How fitting.

    This is huge. (I’ve felt for some time that compartmentalization of knowledge, ranks right up ther with the discovery of fire.) Historian Richard Doland has coined a term that aptly describes these guys: Breakaway Civilizaton…in other words they have subsumed so many brilliant ideas and inventions for their personal use – that under the mantle of National Security – for all practical purpose this elite group is light years ahead of the rest of us in terms of technological advances. In terms of humanity they rank well below pond-scum, but they don’t give a shit. No doubt these entitled SOBs have an electron microscope on every patent application that comes in to the patent offices (world-wide)…This miserable state-of-affairs is also – in part – the explanation for the missing $21 TRILLION that have gone missing from certain agencies in the federal “government” that Catherine Austin Fitts and others are tracking. (Hold on….CNN HAS JUST REPORTED THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP MADE A PHONE CALL TO UKRAINE…more as the situation develops!)

  7. Iamfubar says:

    The only solution is to not file for a patent and release the information to the public for free.

  8. Terry Adams says:

    I used to receive an online technology newsletter that covered technical advances and all the state of the art, cutting edge stuff. Maybe a decade ago I read about ceramic bearing and how they are 99.9997 percent friction free without lubricants. I also remember a two foot long, maybe three inch diameter canister that was created for the military. When a soldier dropped this thing into any body of moving water it created enough electricity to run all the stuff the modern technological soldier needs.
    Lastly, hub motors were talked about quite a bit. A hub motor is an electric motor made into the actual wheel assembly of a car. The assembly also contains the suspension and steering components. This is brilliant as it eliminates the need to locate a huge electric motor inside the chassis of a car. It frees up all the inside for passenger room, for battery space etc..etc.. Imagine having an electric car with four hub motors and a computer that decides how much power is needed and where among the four motors that power should go. Cruising down the interstate alone at seventy? Use one motor to conserve power.. It’s raining and the road is slick? Two wheel drive and all wheel drive when needed…
    Just as Jon said – all of this type technology – which could turn this planet into a virtual paradise (no pun intended) has been hidden from us – STOLEN from us.. Think about it..

    Thank you and God bless and protect you, Jon, for sharing your exceptional intelligence, awareness, integrity, and courage in exposing the deceptions that control our society.
