Has anyone even noticed? Only those journalism sites who don’t answer to corporations and oppose government surveillance.
From The Free Thought Project:
“Despite Nikola Tesla’s astonishing achievements, he has been all-but omitted from government education.
A smattering of individuals have been post-mortem students of Tesla, both furthering and fleshing out his experiments. One such inventor, Jim Murray, has studied the unparalleled scientist for over five decades – and the two have an FBI following in common.
After years of experimentation and projects, Jim contributed greatly to the development of SERPS (Switched Energy Resonance Power Supply) device. As The Free Thought Project, which has interviewed Jim on multiple occasions, previously described SERPS:
“This highly specialized electronic circuit has the ability to “Magnify” the effective power applied to it by nearly 50 times. When Jim coupled his device with his friend Paul Babcock’s patented ultra fast 5 nanosecond switching technology, they achieved a 4790% increase in electrical power compared to the input. This type of performance, if commercialized, would cause the largest electric utility companies to shake in their boots.”

So, FBI, why were you sitting on his documents for over 60 years? To prevent other inventors from building on them? That conclusion may sound “conspiratorial”, but hey, there were reasons, weren’t there.
And it just pisses me off that he’s been ignored by history books for over 60 years. You can thank that thieving bastard, Edison, for that. The guy who refused to pay Tesla the wages he’d earned while working for him because the dickwaffle was jealous. (I learned that watching a TV program about him on the old History International cable network) It was Tesla who lit up the Chicago-hosted Expo, using his “alternating current” method of electricity, but he didn’t get the credit. Edison did.
AC, as we now know and use, was a Tesla invention, but did you know that? No. Fault: Edison. Edison was marketing Direct Current, or DC, and his method wasn’t getting the power he thought it would. Tesla’s AC was, and he was jealous. He convinced the government to ostracize Tesla. It wasn’t hard. He was in bed with the government and Tesla wasn’t. And because Tesla was an “odd duck”.
Death ray? Oh, they laughed at him, and then the government took his documents on it so other people couldn’t get their hands on it. Same thing happened with his “earthquake” machine. He scared a lot of people. He died broke and alone, and partly because he was so “odd” that he wasn’t taken seriously. (he suffered from chronic OCDs) But he was the inventor of what’s now known as the “Tesla coil”:
“A Tesla coil is an electrical resonant transformer circuit invented by Nikola Tesla around 1891. It is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity. Tesla experimented with a number of different configurations consisting of two, or sometimes three, coupled resonant electric circuits.” (Wikipedia actually has a page on him)
And now the FBI is releasing those documents. I’m wondering exactly which ones they’ve kept.
