Tests For DARPA's Gremlins Drones Are All Laid Out But May Be Headed To New Venue
Dynetics' concept involves air launching the Gremlins from a carrier aircraft and then recovering them in midair. The drones each have a docking device, which folds flush with the fuselage when not in use, that then locks into a shuttle towed behind the recovering aircraft.
SWIFT has become the industry standard for syntax in financial messages.
The SWIFT secure messaging network is run from three data centers, one in the United States, one in the Netherlands and one in Switzerland.
SWIFT offers a secure person-to-person messaging service, SWIFTNet Mail, which went live on 16 May 2007. SWIFT clients can configure their existing email infrastructure to pass email messages through the highly secure and reliable SWIFTNet network instead of the open Internet.

Experienced Senator Chuck Grassley thinks I.G. Horowitz is Deep State.
I hope he's wrong!
in August 2014 the UK planned to press the EU to block Russian use of SWIFT as a sanction due to Russian military intervention in Ukraine. However, SWIFT refused to do so. In their official statement they said, "SWIFT regrets the pressure, as well as the surrounding media speculation, both of which risk undermining the systemic character of the services that SWIFT provides its customers around the world". SPFS, a Russia-based SWIFT equivalent, was created by the Central Bank of Russia as a backup measure.
In September 2018 the European Union foreign policy head, Federica Mogherini, proposed the development of a new "special purpose financial vehicle" intended to bypass SWIFT. The seven founding members of this new system are to be Iran, the European Commission, Germany, France, the UK, Russia and China – but not the United States.
In the first half of 2016, an anonymous Ukrainian bank, with the episode being investigated by ISACA, and others—even "dozens" that are not being made public—were variously reported to have been "compromised" through the SWIFT network and to have lost money.
this now builds triple redundancy into the system(s) of international financial clearing, the West's SWIFT, China's CIPS, and Russia's SPFS. In a certain sense one might add Japan's own system, in widespread use in the Pacific, for credit card clearing, which Japan could - and I predict ultimately will - build out into its own fullscale international clearing system.
"why would one build quadruple redundancy" into an overall system of international financial clearing? I strongly suspect that the answer is a military one, for redundant and ultimately hardened systems are a hallmark of military preparations to secure essential communications systems - and financial clearing is an aspect of communications - from any potential threat.
I pointed out in my book Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, and again at the 2014 Secret Space Program conference in San Mateo, California, that one of the concerns of the Brookings Report (1958) for space development was the use of space-based assets for communications and financial clearing, and that in that context, the UFO, and some apparently hostile activity connected with some UFO reports against airborne and the few space-based assets of the time, raised the issue of financial clearing and redundancy to the level of a national security issue.
Viewed this way, it is also a planetary security issue, and the build-out of redundancy in international financial clearing, and the correspondent breaking of SWIFT's monopoly, may have other reasons than "down-to-earth" geopolitics, and other "potential threats" may hover in the background. Indeed, with Russia, China, Japan (and India) being "space powers," and with each country expressing a desire to jump on board the "space mining train," eventually those clearing systems will have to become interplanetary in nature...

Great post, alot to digest and process.
I'll just add that I do NOT believe the Gov't has any "control" nor any oversight of the Black World involving ET craft, ETs and/or Aliens, space travel, nor whatever top-secret advanced technology man-made or acquired through reverse engineering.
I agree. We really have no other colloquial term from the Dark Control System. We use government as a catch all and it handicaps the understanding. When we say "government" we all 'know' what that means even if it means nothing of the sort.
The UFO thing is another C_A psyop to get that term to include "Alien" life no less. "Is it a UFO" has come to mean "is it alien" when U=Unidentified, which if you have to ask means you cannot identify. ugh.
CompartMENTALization is the hallmark of those who wish to remain hidden. They simply create all forms, and I mean all forms, of disguises to get us to do what they need and a big part is word play, teeeveee, movies etc.
Teeeveee and movies have turned all that defining into a mess. I can hear when folks are using such things as their foundation for "life" and it makes for a tough conversation indeed.
Oddly as an aside. The above comment really applies heavily to those who grew up in the internet age - their reference points are beyond problematic on everything. They are often experts on everything but it is all based on zero experience. AOC scared of a garbage disposal sort of thing, yet an expert on a trillion dollar derivative scam called green blah blah blah. (clone-bots don't count of course).
