The BBC appears to have just launched a psyops attack against Richard Dolan, one of the top leaders in the UFO/ET pro-disclosure movement. Of course this kind of thing is hard to prove, but if it looks like a duck to me and quacks like a duck then I will deal with it as a duck. I recently devised a plan and I hope others pick up on to counter attack these perceived psyop attacks. My first article in this vein was MUFON Psyops?http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2011/07/mufon-psyops.html I had perceived a potential gift by Mufon’s non disclosure leadership to non-disclosure CIA assets in the mainstream presshttp://mtracy9.tripod.com/cia_instructions.htm and so ran a article exposing this perceived Psyops and the article made it to the top of the Bing search engine using search words MUFON Musgrave. My thinking is that when non-disclosure hit pieces come out the the corporate press people will do word searches for more information and thus can access a pro-disclosure perspective.

As to a possible BBC psyops Richard Dolan posted the following to his Facebook page. “Wow. Just did a BBC TV interview which reminded me of an attempted Mafia hit. Total setup complete with all the woowoo music and nonsense. I did not play the game they wanted me to, and did a brief and positive 2 minutes, sticking to my game plan. As a result (I assume) they cancelled the video debate I was to have with a UK skeptic later this morning. In my experience, BBC has seldom played fair on UFOs

This was followed by additional posts. Richard said. “Yes, it was SO obvious what they were trying to do. It would be funny in some alternate reality. I believe that BBC has some sort of mandate to do this — to smear the topic when they handle it at the national level, which this was. Local affiliates may have more leeway, but at the national level, they will let the topic go only so far, and no further. And in my case, it was an obvious attempt at a “silly season” portrayal of the topic, which I was not playing along with, and they obviously knew it.”

With the social networks and the Internet we don’t just have to roll over and take hit after hit against UFO/ET disclosure of extraterrestrial life. I hope my writing inspires others to also write credible Internet articles counter attacking these apparent mainstream non-disclosure illegal psyops operations. These articles then will rise up in the search engines holding the mainstream press accountable when the psyops programs hit the public and the Internet.

Richard has been in the UK speaking at the Third Annual Leeds Exopolitics Conference. http://exopolitics-leeds.co.uk/

(Edit in: Since I wrote this article Nick Pope has admitted being involved in a UK MOD psyops operation against the public and the BBC backed out of this attack against Dolan.

Mufon’s corporate decision to promote Astronaut Musgrave as its featured speaker at it’s July symposium is a slap in the face to its membership and to the general public as well. Already Musgrave has been interviewed by the press speaking the NASA-SETI propaganda and misdirection deceptions that aliens may be out there, but are not here.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/20/astronaut-story-musgrave-no-aliens-here_n_902021.html All this when so many brave astronauts and cosmonauts have spoken out about their UFO/ET experiences.http://www.gravitywarpdrive.com/UFO_Testimonies.htm Such a non-disclosure posture on behalf of the Mufon leadership can not be easily understood without some overall historical context.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1XsEL9ZjJY

It’s obvious to me that the intelligence community and the military have learned their lessons well, taught to them by Donald Keyhoe and NICAP in the 1950s that organizations like NICAP, would either have to be destroyed, converted or created to manage the non-disclosure agenda. In other words the UFO community would have to be managed and controlled just as would the mainstream press, politicians and the scientific community. Recently I ran across a very well documented and researched article on perception management of the UFO/ET community that very clearly shows a strong pattern of perception management of the UFO community into what I call the UFO/ET ghetto for over sixty years. http://vigilantcitizen.com/latestnews/a-history-of-government-management-of-ufo-perceptions-through-film-and-television/ It’s common for us in the ghetto surrounded by the wall of denial and ridicule to blame each other for the information starvation and other abuses being inflicted upon us when the real culprit is our intelligence agencies and military who are in turn owned by global military industrial complex globalists.

Recently some members of Mufon have begun to rebel against the Mufon leadership and are shocked at the allegations now beginning to come out about Mufon’s close ties to the intelligence community.http://www.jerrypippin.com/mufon_under_siege.htm They have formed a reform committee being chaired by a old ORTK associate of mine Elaine Douglass. http://reformmufon.org/ To me Mufon’s ties to the intelligence committee along with Cufos and Nicap ties as well, are old news. Folks just need to gather up the evidence in good books like UFOs and the National Security State and the not well know UFO Crash at Aztec and from the Internet to put all the pieces together. The way MJ12-NSA-CIA controls the UFO community, mainstream press, politicians and the scientific community is through a network of high placed moles. This is not a new idea as it is very well spelled out with proof in the book UFO Crash at Aztec. It’s also what intelligence agencies do to each other by infiltrating command control.

I have long suggested that Cufos and Mufon were owned not by the rank and file but by the intelligence community as well as skeptics organizations like the Committee for the Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal and SETI. NICAP, CUFOs and MUFON have been patterned after the old Civilian Observation Core of World War 2. As a five year old boy I used to skip school faking a stomach ache to go watch for planes at a tower at Beachton. The planes would be identified and the information phoned to the authorities. This program was still ongoing in the 1950s when I was a small boy. The intelligence community learned its lessons from NICAP and Keyhoe that such civilian organizations would have to be created and controlled by intelligence moles or by civilians sympathetic to the intelligence community. I was told years ago by a source that the Mufon leadership was in constant telephone contact with members of the intelligence community and I would not doubt that at all.

I support the Mufon reformers, but I suspect that like NICAP the Mufon leadership would rather destroy the organization rather than let it get into the hands of another Keyhoe. The Mufon reformers may end up being more bark that bite unless the instigate a class action suit against Mufon to access corporate records, emails, phone logs etc. That I believe, will prove that Mufon is nothing more that a information gathering, perception management and leak suppression agency controlled by the intelligence community. Already people from Mufon are beginning to come forward implicating Mufon ties to the Intelligence community. However I don’t think the reformers have much of a idea of the scope and overall context of the problem yet.

A History of Government Management of UFO Perceptions through Film and Television

Posted by Admin on July 30, 2011

http://vigilantcitizen.com/latestnews/a-history-of-government-management-of-ufo-perceptions-through-film-and-television/

By  | July 6th, 2011

UFOs and aliens beings have often been portrayed in mass media, whether it be movies or television shows. Most of these appearances were however heavily edited and calculated by the American government in order to communicate a specific attitude towards this mysterious phenomenon. What is the purpose of these efforts? This article looks at the fascinating history of government involvement in UFO-related movies and television shows.

This article originally appeared in the magazine 49th Parallel, Vol. 25 (Spring 2011) and is reproduced on Vigilant Citizen with the permission of the authors: Robbie Graham (University of Bristol)* & Matthew Alford (University of Bath)†.

* Robbie Graham is a doctoral candidate at the University of Bristol for a PhD examining Hollywood’s historical representations of UFOs and extraterrestrial visitation. He is also creator of the blog Silver Screen Saucers.

† Matthew Alford is the author of Reel Power: Hollywood Cinema and American Supremacy (Pluto Press, 2010). He received his PhD in Cinema and Politics from the University of Bath in 2008.

On 22 January 1958, the popular CBS television show Armstrong Circle Theatre presented an entire programme dedicated to the subject of unidentified flying objects entitled: “UFO: Enigma of the Skies.” Among the high-profile experts invited to speak on the show, retired US Navy Major Donald Keyhoe – director of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) – was notable for his outspoken views on government secrecy surrounding the UFO phenomenon. Arguing against UFO reality on the programme were astronomer and vehement UFO sceptic Donald Menzel and Air Force representative Col. Spencer Whedon of the Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC). Their task should have been an easy one as the show’s content had been scripted in advance by CBS in conjunction with the US Air Force, and all guests – especially Keyhoe – had been instructed to read their preapproved material from a teleprompter.

When it came time for Keyhoe to speak, in frustration he veered from his script and stated to the nation: “And now I’m going to reveal something that has never been disclosed before…” 1 The rest of his announcement went unheard by television viewers: unbeknownst to Keyhoe, his microphone had been cut by the station. Keyhoe continued:

“For the last six months, we have been working with a congressional committee investigating official secrecy about UFOs. If all the evidence we have given this committee is made public in open hearings, it will absolutely prove that the UFOs are real machines under intelligent control.”2

After the show, CBS was inundated with calls and letters from viewers demanding to know why Keyhoe’s audio had been cut: “Call it what you like,” wrote one viewer, “but it appeared to be a very shocking display of censorship; and certainly offensive to the intelligence of the American public…” 3 Nine days later, CBS admitted it had been subject to official censorship. In a letter to a disgruntled viewer dated 31 January, 1958, CBS director of editing, Herbert A. Carlborg, stated:

“This program had been carefully cleared for security reasons. Therefore, it was the responsibility of this network to insure [sic] performance in accordance with pre-determined security standards. Any indication that there would be a deviation might lead to statements that neither this network nor the individuals on the program were authorized to release.”4

As will be evidenced in this essay, the US government’s historical efforts to censor UFO-related media products extend considerably further than the Keyhoe incident and have noticeably affected the content of numerous films and TV products over a six-decade time span. Before moving to examine some of these cases, however, it is necessary to ask: why should the US government wish to exert its influence over media representations of a subject as seemingly fanciful as UFOs? The answer to this question becomes clear with even a cursory glance at the government’s early documentation on the subject, which reflects a sustained concern about UFOs (if not a consensus on their origins) at the highest levels of the US military.

Background

The US government’s interest in UFOs dates back to the summer of 1947 when America’s national security apparatus was besieged by hundreds of reports from concerned citizens and military personnel of what appeared to be metallic disk-shaped objects traversing the nation’s skies, sometimes in formation and often at impossible speeds. On 24 June private aviator and businessman Kenneth Arnold reported seeing a chain of nine unusual objects over the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. Arnold described the objects’ movement as being “like a saucer if you skip it across the water,” inspiring the press to dub the mystery objects “flying saucers.” 5Many hundreds of saucer sightings were reported worldwide in the months to follow.

In 1948 the US Air Force produced its Top Secret and highly controversial “Estimate of the Situation,” an official report concluding flying saucers to be interplanetary in origin.6 Other factions within the Air Force, however, favoured the more palatable (though perhaps no less alarming) idea that the saucers were the product of technological innovations in the Soviet Union. Either way, secrecy regarding the issue was of paramount importance as the question of whether the objects were physically real had already been affirmatively answered in the minds of America’s military leaders. In a once secret letter to Air Force Headquarters dated 23 September 1947, General Nathan Twining, head of Air Materiel Command (AMC), stated that flying saucers were “real and not visionary or fictitious,” that they had “metallic or light reflecting surface[s],” were “circular or elliptical in shape, flat on bottom and domed on top,” and were sometimes sighted in “well-kept formation flights varying from three to nine objects.” 7 In a previously Top Secret Canadian government document dating from 1950, Wilbert Smith – head of the Canadian government’s UFO research project, Magnet, noted with regard to UFOs that “The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States government, rating higher even than the H-bomb.” 8

Today, numerous governments worldwide maintain dedicated and costly UFO study projects – collating and often investigating what collectively amount to thousands of UFO sighting reports made annually to authorities. In South America alone, the governments of Argentina,9Uruguay,10  Peru,11 Chile12 and Brazil13 either operate UFO investigations units or actively collect UFO sighting reports through their militaries. Other governments, including those of France,14New Zealand,15 Denmark,16 Canada17 and Russia,18 have in recent years released to the public thousands of pages of previously classified UFO files.

The UK government also is engaging with the public on the UFO issue through an ongoing process which has seen the release of thousands of previously classified UFO files through the National Archives.19 According to the UK Ministry of Defense, UFOs (or UAPs – Unidentified Aerial Phenomena – as the MoD refers to them) “certainly exist,” but are “still barely understood.”20 In a formerly secret 400-page assessment of the UFO phenomenon released in 2006 under the Freedom of Information Act, the UK Defence Intelligence Staff acknowledged that:

“The phenomena occur on a daily, world-wide basis… That UAP exist is indisputable. Credited with the ability to hover, land, take-off, accelerate to exceptional velocities and vanish, they can reportedly alter their direction of flight suddenly and clearly can exhibit aerodynamic characteristics well beyond those of any known aircraft or missile – either manned or unmanned.”21

The report also notes that “attempts by other nations to intercept the unexplained objects, which can clearly change position faster than an aircraft, have reportedly already caused fatalities,” and warns that, with the increasing density of UAP reports in the UK air defence region, “a small possibility may exist… of a head-on encounter with a UAP.”22

There appears, then, to be a broad consensus among the governments cited above: UFOs are objectively real – albeit currently not fully understood by science – worthy, at best, of focused study and, at the very least, of sustained monitoring in the interests of aviation safety and national security. Standing outside of this consensus is the United States, which is conspicuous for its almost total silence on the UFO issue, which it has maintained since the closure in 1969 of the Air Force’s long-running UFO investigations project: Blue Book.23 Despite shunning discussion of the phenomenon today, the US government’s historical concerns regarding UFOs clearly represent a significant passage – if not an entire chapter – in the history of its early Cold War machinations. Yet academic discourse surrounding the accepted historical meta-narrative of the US national security state rarely, if ever, accommodates serious discussion of UFOs. This is owed to the fact that, as observed by political scientists Alexander Wendt and Raymond Duvall: “Considerable work goes into ignoring UFOs, constituting them as objects only of ridicule and scorn… to that extent one may speak of a ‘UFO taboo,’ a prohibition in the authoritative public sphere on taking UFOs seriously.” 24

In turn, details of the government’s involvement in UFO-themed entertainment products are meagre in the pages of cinema and TV history, with the only substantive work on the subject to date having been produced by historian Lawrence Suid.25 Although Suid’s work is undeniably valuable (it is referenced extensively throughout this paper), it mischaracterises UFOs as a minor PR concern for the military – when in fact they were an issue of great sensitivity that initially raised serious questions regarding national security – and fails to acknowledge several cases of film and TV productions that the authorities actively sought to manipulate for political ends in line with government UFO policy.

This essay builds on Suid’s work, filling in the gaps, bringing it up to date and elucidating further the government’s historical motivations for exerting its influence over UFO-themed film and television productions. The government’s historical engagement with such fare can most thoroughly be discussed with regard to the Department of Defense (DoD), which has worked extensively with Hollywood in exchange for the right to edit scripts for sixty years with the principal aim of encouraging recruitment and retention of personnel, as detailed by Suid in his extensive tome Guts and Glory (2002) and by journalist David Robb. However, in practice the Pentagon’s remit is more wide-ranging, as it routinely promotes its own version of US history, as with its sanitisation of the military’s public image through its removal of a key character in Black Hawk  Down (2002) who in real life had been convicted of raping a twelve-year-old boy;26 when it refused to cooperate on the feature film Counter Measures (1998) on the grounds that it did not want to remind the public of the Iran-Contra scandal;27 or when it removed a joke about “losing Vietnam” in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies (1997).28

The UFO Problem: Managing Perceptions

With regard to UFOs, the government’s efforts at managing public perceptions are very well established, with the prime example relating to the so-called “Roswell Incident” of July 1947 when the Roswell Army Air Force (RAAF) hastily announced to the press its “capture” of a downed “flying saucer” on an isolated ranch in the deserts of New Mexico.29 A few hours later, the RAAF changed its story to the effect that what had been recovered, in fact, was a common weather balloon.30The United States Air Force (USAF) was to change this story again in 1995 with the announcement that the “weather balloon” had been a Top Secret high-altitude spy balloon.31This story was then officially re-written in 1997 to account for a number of apparently non-human bodies eyewitnesses claimed were recovered from the crash. The bodies, said the USAF, were human corpses, test dummies, or both.32

It is unsurprising, then, in light of its historical headaches relating to the UFO issue, that when filmmakers working on UFO-themed productions have sought cooperation from the Pentagon the response has been dismissive: deny cooperation or else request script changes that de-legitimise the study of the phenomenon. This process of official de-legitimisation can be traced back to recommendations made in 1953 by the CIA-sponsored Robertson Panel, a group of leading scientists assembled by US government physicist Howard Percy Robertson for the task of reviewing the Air Force’s UFO files. The Robertson Panel’s main findings were that UFOs were not a direct threat to national security. Nevertheless, it suggested the Air Force begin a “debunking” effort employing the talents of psychiatrists, astronomers and celebrities with the goal of demystifying UFO reports.33 The reasoning for this recommendation as officially stated lay in the belief that the Soviets might try to “mask” an actual invasion of the USA by causing a wave of false UFO reports to swamp the Pentagon and other military agencies.34 Their formal recommendation was:

“That the national security agencies take immediate steps to strip the Unidentified Flying Objects of the special status they have been given and the aura of mystery they have unfortunately acquired.” 35

The panel further stated that this should “be accomplished by mass media such as television [and] motion pictures…” and gave specific reference to Walt Disney.36 It is not clear to what extent or how successfully these recommendations were implemented. However, even as late as 1966 the Robertson Panel wielded a demonstrable influence over media representations of UFOs in the CBS TV broadcast of UFOs: Friend, Foe, or Fantasy? (1966), an anti-UFO documentary narrated by Walter Cronkite. In a personal letter addressed to former Robertson Panel Secretary Frederick C. Durant, panel member Dr Thornton Page confides that he “helped organize the documentary around the Robertson Panel conclusions,”37 even though this was thirteen years after the panel had disbanded and despite the fact that he was personally sympathetic to the existence of flying saucers.

The mentality of the CIA-Robertson Panel was present in other productions during the 1950s, not least in the aforementioned Keyhoe CBS/ USAF censorship case discussed earlier. Also notable is the 1956 documentary, Unidentified Flying Objects: The True Story of Flying Saucers, which prompted the USAF to draw up contingency plans to counteract the anticipated fallout from the film upon its release. The director of the USAF’s official UFO investigations unit, Project Blue Book, Captain George T. Gregory, was tasked with monitoring not only the film’s production process, but its public and critical reception. Believing that the film would stir up a “storm of public controversy,” the USAF set about preparing a special case file that would debunk every saucer sighting examined in the movie and even went so far as to have three of its Blue Book officers provide “technical assistance” to the filmmakers in an effort to control the content of the documentary.38

Another case in this vein relates to a UFO-themed episode of the Steve Canyon TV series (1958–1959) that raised the ire of the US Air Force. Backed by Chesterfield Cigarettes and produced at Universal Studios with the full cooperation of the USAF, the NBC show chronicled the live-action exploits of Milton Caniff’s famous comic strip character. The episode to which the USAF took objection was entitled “Project UFO” and saw Colonel Steve Canyon investigate a spate of flying saucer sightings reported to a local Air Force base. According to aviation historian James H. Farmer, “This was an episode that the Air Force did not really want to be aired,” because the UFO subject was “a hot potato.”39

By the time the USAF had finished with the script, it was, according to Farmer, “pretty tame… compared to the earlier renditions.”40 In the episode as aired the UFO sightings are attributed to a combination of hoax-induced hysteria and – in support of the USAF’s original Roswell cover story – misidentifications of weather balloons. Producer John Ellis of the Milton Caniff Estate (which owns Steve Canyon) explained: “Every single page got re-written, and re-written, and re-written…”41 David Haft, the show’s producer, was more to the point in his recollection of the USAF’s reaction when he submitted the first script draft for official approval: “Oh, oh, oh, oh! No, no, no, no!”42 Haft also noted that the USAF had difficulty in deciding what was acceptable for broadcast.43

In one of the earliest drafts of “Project UFO,” Steve Canyon speaks to his Commanding Officer, Colonel Jamison, in defence of a civilian UFO witness: “Why call him a jerk?” asks Canyon, “Seems to me like he acted like a pretty solid, clearheaded citizen…”44 This dialogue was removed. Elsewhere in the draft, Canyon appears to be enthusiastic about flying saucers. At one point, when a fresh UFO report comes into the base from the local town, Canyon, “Jumps to [his] feet, rushes to [the] door,” and cries “This I gotta see!” before making “a hurried exit.”45 In the final scene as originally written, Canyon is actually seen opening a book on flying saucers, “and sits there quietly reading…”46 This scene failed to make it to the final draft, and, in the version as aired, Canyon’s excitement about UFOs is replaced with scepticism or plain indifference. An entire plot strand concerning the recovery and scientific analysis of what is initially suspected to be flying saucer debris (but which eventually turns out to be nothing of the sort) was removed. The draft included dialogue like: That thing [flying saucer] dropped a small metal ball enclosing an electrical apparatus so intricate, so ingenious, nobody yet has been able to figure out its purpose,” and, “the metal wouldn’t respond to any of the standard tests.” 47

Despite the rewrites, the USAF preferred that the episode not be aired at all. “It got stuck on a shelf,” says Ellis in his DVD commentary, “it was finished… but they held on until near the end of the series to air it.”48 Indeed, it was only through a last act of defiance on the part of the show’s producers toward the end of its run in 1959 that the episode was screened at all.49

Even prior to the Robertson Panel’s formation, government attitudes to UFO themed film and TV productions in the 1950s were hostile, as Lawrence Suid observes:

“The decision of whether the military should cooperate with a filmmaker depended not only on the way the military would be portrayed but also on whether the film differed from official Department of Defense positions on subjects like UFOs and alien life forms.”50

However, concerns were raised by at least one film not even seeking military cooperation. The Flying Saucer (1950) was America’s very first UFO movie and its director, Mikel Conrad, claimed publicly whilst in production that he had managed to secure genuine footage of a real flying saucer for use in his movie. In September 1949, Conrad told the Ohio Journal Herald, “I have scenes of the saucer landing, taking off, flying and doing tricks.”51 Shortly thereafter Conrad became the subject of a two-month official Air Force investigation. Documents released under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that an agent of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations was dispatched not only to interrogate Conrad about his claims but also to attend the first private screening of his completed film. Unsurprisingly, Conrad’s story was soon revealed as an elaborate marketing scam designed to promote what was, in reality, a tedious and uneventful movie.52Nevertheless, the Conrad case is significant for its demonstration of the high degree of seriousness with which the USAF regarded the issue of media representations of the burgeoning UFO phenomenon.

Also in 1950, the USAF refused cooperation with RKO pictures on The Thing from Another World (1951). In a Pentagon meeting with the film’s producer, Edward Lasker, USAF officers explained that they had just spent half a million dollars proving that flying saucers did not exist and asked: “Why should we help you make a picture about one?” 53They emphasised that “the Air Force will not participate in any activity that could be interpreted as a perpetuation of the flying saucer hoax.”54

The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), which depicted a flying saucer landing in Washington DC, was similarly turned down by the USAF, although the Pentagon ultimately provided limited assistance through the National Guard because, it said, in the event of an alien invasion, the Armed Services would indeed defend the nation.55 In other words, although there were clear attempts to prevent the spread of the UFO mythology through the 1950s, there was at least some flexibility built into the Pentagon’s criteria for working with UFO-related productions.

In 1969, the US closed Project Blue Book, its systematic study of UFOs, concluding that these sightings did not represent a threat to national security nor technological developments or principles beyond the range of modern scientific knowledge.56 Yet the government-media model of non-cooperation and script manipulation remained generally true into the 1970s and beyond. In 1976, several arms of the government refused to cooperate on Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), his classic blockbuster imagining alien contact with humans.

Major Sidney Shaw in the National Guard Bureau in Washington wrote to Columbia Pictures:

“We have reviewed the script and believe it would be inappropriate for the Air Force or National Guard Bureau to support the production. In 1969 the USAF completed a study which concluded there is no evidence concerning the existence of UFOs. We have not been involved in UFOs since that study other than answering queries about the study. The proposed film leaves the distinct impression that UFOs, in fact, do exist. It also involves the government and military in a big cover up of the existence of UFOs. These two points are counter to Air Force and Department of Defense policy and make support to the production inappropriate.”57

NASA also rejected the chance to cooperate with Close Encounters, even though the space agency had been known for being, “more flexible, sometimes to the breaking point” – in Suid’s words – over its relative willingness to cooperate with films that showed them in an unflattering light, including productions like Marooned (1969) and even the NASA conspiracy movie Capricorn One (1977).58 Suid, however, in his analysis of this case, neglects to mention that not only did NASA refuse cooperation to Spielberg, but that the space agency sought actively to convince the director not to make the film at all. In a 1978 interview for the journal Cinema Papers Spielberg said:

“I really found my faith [in UFO reality] when I heard that the government was opposed to the film. If NASA took the time to write me a 20 page letter, then I knew there must be something happening. I had wanted cooperation from them, but when they read the script they got very angry and felt that it was a film that would be dangerous. I think they mainly wrote the letter because Jaws convinced so many people around the world that there were sharks in toilets and bathtubs, not just in the oceans and rivers. They were afraid the same kind of epidemic would happen with UFOs.”59

An Era of Greater Flexibility

However, by the 1980s it was at least possible for a film to mention UFOs without the DoD trying to stifle it, starting with the children’s fantasy Invaders from Mars (1986), which was granted full cooperation from DoD. This cooperation, however, was based on the fact that the film did not draw directly from established UFO mythology; that the traditional “flying saucer” motif received minimal screen time; and because the film presented positive images of the military. Major Fred Peck of the LA Public Affairs Office and his deputy, Chief Warrant Officer Chas Henry, helped director Tobe Hooper visualise how Marines might actually react in the event of the invasion. Peck commented that, “Marines have no qualms about killing Martians,” a line which made it into the film.60 Peck and his Deputy also helped Hooper identify Marine reservists to constitute the cinematic leatherneck unit and recruited a retired public affairs officer, Captain Dale Dye, to prepare the extras.61

In a return to its old ways, in the mid-1990s, the Pentagon denied cooperation to Independence Day (1996) although depictions of UFOs were not its only concern over the picture. In fact, Tom McCollum of the Army Public Affairs Office in Los Angeles had a long list of changes, mostly quite technical.62 Still, it is notable that among its list of recommended changes was the request that any government connection to Area 51 or to Roswell be eliminated from the film.63 Maj. Nancy LaLuntas of the US Marines’ Los Angeles Public Affairs Office stated explicitly that the Pentagon would not support a film that perpetuates the Roswell “myth” and added that the “DoD cannot hide info from [the] President (i.e. aliens and [a space]ship in custody).”64

In contrast to its disapproval of Independence Day, the DoD had no qualms about cooperating with Steven Spielberg for his 2005 remake of War of the Worlds. As was the case with Invaders from Mars, though, Spielberg’s film did not draw in any readily identifiable way from modern UFO mythology as its narrative featured no government conspiracy, no UFO-related terminology (such as “Area 51”) or reference to historical UFO-related events (such as Roswell); nor, indeed, did it feature any UFOs in the conventional sense – only the ‘tripods’ of HG Wells’s source material. So, while War of the Worlds projected to audiences a vivid, vérité rendering of what a post-9/11 alien invasion in reality might look like, crucially for the Pentagon it also provided a recruitment-friendly representation of the professionalism and sheer fire power with which the US military would respond to such an invasion.65

In the interests of PR, the DoD also saw fit to lend extensive support to Spielberg’s 2007 production of Transformers,66 despite the film’s plot drawing obliquely from UFO mythology. The USAF provided director Michael Bay with billions-of-dollars worth of state-of-the-art hardware for use in the film, including the F-117 Nighthawk and the F-22 Raptor fighter. The DoD saw Transformers as an ideal opportunity to bolster the image of the US military, which it achieved by exercising its considerable contractual power throughout the film’s production. As such, the onscreen military is portrayed forcefully as an unswervingly heroic and righteous institution, making the film “a great recruiting tool,” according to Pentagon employee Chief Master Sgt. Mike Gasparetto.67

Like War of the Worlds, however, despite it dealing with the subject of aliens, Transformers was unlikely to have prompted a wave of flying saucer sightings as it contained no UFOs, per se, only giant transforming robots. The DoD’s involvement in the film was also notably self-serving beyond the primary purpose of recruitment and can be seen as an attempt on the DoD’s part to cleanse its image with respect to its troubled history with the UFO phenomenon. In one scene, for example, the Pentagon is absolved of complicity in what we learn has been a decades-long cover-up of alien visitations. Blame for the conspiracy is instead placed at the doorstep of the extraconstitutional “Sector 7,” a “special access division of the government” which has been concealing its “Top Secret” alien research since 1934 within “Special Access Projects.” Crucially, the cover-up has been conducted without the knowledge or consent of the Secretary of Defense (played by Jon Voigt), who is outraged when the truth is finally revealed to him: “And you didn’t think the United States military might need to know that you’re keeping a hostile alien robot frozen in the basement?”68

An Unknown Agenda

Anomalous within the pattern thus far established of government hostilities toward UFO-mythologising in films and TV shows are perhaps two major cases in which various state agencies chose to cooperate on productions in which UFOs were depicted as being not only real, but distinctly extraterrestrial.

In 1979, Oscar-winning Disney animator Ward Kimball claimed that in the 1950s the USAF had approached Walt Disney himself to request cooperation on a documentary that would help acclimatise the public to extraterrestrial reality but that the project was abandoned when the USAF reneged on its offer to provide “real” UFO footage.69 Indirect support for Kimball’s claim was offered in 1997 by Philip Corso, a retired Lieutenant Colonel and former Chief of the Pentagon’s Foreign Technology desk.70 Corso claimed that the production of flying saucer movies was secretly encouraged by government-led UFO study groups in the 1950s to acclimatise the public to extraterrestrials whilst simultaneously manipulating perceptions of the phenomenon; he referred to this alleged strategy as: “camouflage through limited disclosure.”71 However, the testimonies of Kimball and Corso are just that: testimonies, and are not supported by documented and physical evidence. Still, other cases along these lines are rather more substantial. For the 1982 blockbuster ET: The Extra-Terrestrial, for example, it is known that producer Kathleen Kennedy and director Steven Spielberg brainstormed with NASA scientists on the likely official response to an alien’s arrival. This collaboration shaped sections of the movie, including the scene when NASA personnel enter a sealed-off suburban home in search of E.T. The producers also asked NASA what sort of planet E.T. might call home. They came up with a “little green planet” populated by “little mushroom farmers,” Kennedy says. E.T.’s biology reflected this scenario – the little alien “was closer to a plant than a biological human being,” Kennedy says.72Cooperation in this case was likely offered as a low-level courtesy due to the fact that the film’s representation of NASA was generally favourable – the professionalism and humanity of the space agency’s personnel shining through even in the face an extraterrestrial bio-hazard – and because its story was not so much concerned with the UFO phenomenon as with the fantastical friendship between a boy and an alien.

There was more comprehensive, high-level cooperation from the DoD for the production of one particularly unusual film, though – the documentary, UFOs: Past, Present and Future (1974), which considered the extra-terrestrial hypothesis in a much more serious light. The film’s director, Robert Emenegger, was given unprecedented access to DoD facilities, including the highly sensitive Holloman Air Force Base and the Pentagon itself. “The Secretary of the Air Force [Robert Seamans] gave the order to co-operate,” explained the director, who was granted time with highranking military officers apparently well-versed in UFO-related matters, among them Colonel William Coleman, a former spokesman for Project Blue Book, and Colonel George Weinbrenner, then head of Foreign Technology at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.73 The film even included a detailed reconstruction of what Emenegger claims the USAF told him was a real extraterrestrial landing at Holloman Air Force Base in 1971, complete with artistic renderings of the alleged aliens. The USAF even provided Emenegger with a few seconds of footage showing what appeared to be an unusual, bright object descending slowly and vertically over the base. These frames, Emenegger claims, were taken from the “genuine” alien landing footage and officially authorised for use in his completed documentary, which, in line with a recommendation by the USAF, presented the incident as “one that might happen in the future – or perhaps could have happened already.”74 Emenegger claims that he was approached by the USAF to initiate this project, which would be in line with his scholarly interest in propaganda, his history as a Vice President at Grey Advertising, and his personal involvement in the Nixon Campaign to Re-Elect the President (CREEP).75 The film also received support from the Army, the Navy and NASA, with the latter furnishing Emenegger’s production with previously unreleased photographs of what appeared to be UFOs taken in space by Gemini astronauts. It is hard to divine an explanation for the DoD’s actions in this case other than as some kind of public reaction test or an attempt by the Pentagon to be more open about its continued monitoring of the phenomenon.

The government also apparently provided assistance on Disney’s 2009 live action family film Race to Witch Mountain, despite the film’s plot drawing extensively from UFO mythology (with references both to Area 51 and Roswell) and despite its presentation of a sinister government cover-up. Working within the narrative constraints of the film’s previous incarnation, Escape to Witch Mountain (1975), director Andy Fickman – a self-confessed UFO enthusiast – took pride in infusing his remake with as many elements as possible drawn directly from UFO literature.

When Fickman first received the script from Disney it had been “more of a comedy,” but the director felt the material should be treated seriously and wanted to make use of events, debates and terminology stemming from the UFO research field: “I’m willing to do this movie,” Fickman told Disney, “but I want to ground it in as much reality as I possibly can.”76

Although the vast majority of the film’s UFOlogical content came from Fickman, at least some of it was the result of CIA input. In a highly unusual production arrangement Fickman claims he was closely assisted by an active employee of the CIA whose advice extended so far even as to designing the alien writing seen in the UFO during the film’s climactic scene. Fickman is unwilling to name this advisor, but claims he is an Air Force Colonel with a background in Technical Intelligence, that he had been “very active in Hollywood” and “had a lot of connections in the computer world and [experience in] satellite imagery.”77

Fickman said of his CIA advisor:

“All of the on-camera alien language in terms of their spaceship and everything – that was all designed by him in the sense [of what] the mathematics of communication would be, so you know… there would be a similar mathematical equation that the government probably has if they were to ever come across an alien race. So a lot of the things we ended up using were things he was bringing to me… and the next thing  you know, that’s what I had on screen.”78

The advisor also recommended that certain UFO-related content be removed from the script: “there were things we got rid of in the script that he was just trying to follow logic [on] from a protocol standpoint,” said Fickman, although he would not elaborate on the nature of the changes made.79

Fickman further claims that he was afforded a visit to NORAD’s sensitive Cheyenne Mountain facility in 2008, where – accompanied by his CIA advisor – his team spent twelve hours taking photographs and talking with on-duty military officers, including the heads of NORAD. “We wanted our Witch Mountain to resemble what NORAD and Cheyenne Mountain look like inside,” he said, adding: “We took a thousand photos and then by the time they released us into the wilderness maybe we had three hundred that had been approved for us to somewhat copy [for production design purposes].”80

The CIA, for its part, claims to have had no involvement in Race to Witch Mountain. In an email to the author, Paula Weiss, Media Spokeswoman at the CIA Office of Public Affairs, said: “to the best of our collective knowledge in the media relations office, we did not provide any technical or other support to this production.”81

Fickman was puzzled by the CIA’s denial. Questioned by the author on whether or not the CIA man could have been retired from the Agency and had been acting in a private capacity (as is the case with a number of ex-CIA operatives in Hollywood, including Robert Baer, Milton Beardon and Chase Brandon), the director replied: “there’s no way we would have had what we had, had he not been an active CIA employee…”82 Indeed, throughout the NORAD visit, Fickman claims he relied heavily on the influence wielded by his CIA man: “Nothing happened at NORAD without him flashing his card and making his calls.”83

Fickman believes it was due largely to the fact that his military and intelligence advisors were secured “through back door channels” that his production was granted such extraordinary access to the inner-workings of the national security apparatus, but he insists there was no hidden agenda behind the US government’s uncharacteristic generosity in this regard:

“All of a sudden I was in places that I don’t know I would have been had I gone through normal channels. I don’t think there was anything abnormal about what they were doing, I just think it was [that] phone calls were being made and doors were sort of opening.” 84

Conclusion

The US government has made concerted efforts over the years to manage through entertainment media popular perceptions of UFOs while attempting simultaneously to massage its own public image in relation to the phenomenon. If, though, as the government insists, UFOs are essentially non-existent, why the concern? In 1961, a NASA-commissioned report by the Brookings Institute, “Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs,” warned that an official announcement confirming the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial beings could have disastrous consequences for human civilisation:

“Anthropological files contain many examples of societies sure of their place in the universe, which have disintegrated when they had to associate with previously unfamiliar societies espousing different ideas and different life ways; others that survived such an experience usually did so by paying the price of changes in values and attitudes and behavior.” 85

The report also advised that the government ask: “How might such information, under what circumstances, be presented to or withheld from the public for what ends?”86 However, although the Brookings report points to the concerns raised amongst powerful organisations about the potentially dangerous implications of UFOs and the need to control perceptions about the possibilities of alien life, it certainly does not constitute evidence of a UFO cover-up. A US government cover-up, though, is precisely what was alleged in 1999 in a ninety-page report detailing the results of an independent study for the Institute of Higher Studies for National Defence – a French military think-tank. The white paper, now commonly referred to as The COMETA Report, was compiled by a group of thirteen retired top-tier generals, admirals and government scientists (including General Bernard Norlain, the former head of the French Tactical Air Force, and Andre Lebeau, the former head of CNES [the French equivalent of NASA]) and documented the existence of unidentified flying objects and their implications for national security.87 Copies were received by President Jacques Chirac and Prime Minister Lionel Jospin. The report concluded that for the small percentage of UFO sightings which after exhaustive investigation and analysis could not be attributed to any known earthly technology or phenomena, the extraterrestrial hypothesis was valid. The report stated that some UFOs represent “completely unknown flying machines with exceptional performances that are guided by natural or artificial intelligence”88 and noted that, although the extraterrestrial hypothesis “has not been categorically proven… strong presumptions exist in its favour.”89 The report then goes on to consider in detail the likely consequences of open extraterrestrial contact for politics, science and religion.

In regard to the US government’s historical UFO research, the report states:

“It is clear that the Pentagon has had, and probably still has, the greatest interest in concealing, as best it can, all of this research, which may, over time, cause the United States to hold a position of great supremacy over terrestrial adversaries, while giving it a considerable response capacity against a possible threat coming from space. Within this context, it is impossible for them to divulge the sources of this research and the goals pursued, because that could immediately point any possible rivals down the most beneficial avenues. Cover-ups and disinformation (both active as well as passive) still remain, under this hypothesis, an absolute necessity. Thus it would appear natural in the minds of U.S. military leaders, secrecy must be maintained as long as possible.” 90

US government secrecy surrounding UFOs throughout much of the Cold War is now a matter of public record; ongoing secrecy on the matter, however – much less an official cover-up – is difficult if not impossible to prove, although numerous persons of influence have over the years indicated that a cover-up of sorts has been and may still be in effect. Notable among these individuals are: former CIA director Roscoe Hillenkoetter;91 former special assistant to deputy CIA director Richard Helms, Victor Marchetti;92 Senator Barry Goldwater;93 Gemini astronaut Col. Gordon Cooper;94billionaire financier Lawrence Rockefeller;95 Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell;96 former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, Paul Hellyer;97 and former Governor of Arizona, Fife Symington.98John Podesta – head of President Obama’s White House Transition team and former Chief of Staff to President Clinton – has also strongly hinted at a UFO cover-up. Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington DC in 2002, Podesta stated:

“I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark on Government investigations of UFOs. It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it, really, because it’s right; we ought to do it because the American people quite frankly can handle the truth; and we ought to do it because it’s the law.” 99

Since the flying saucer phenomenon entered the popular consciousness in 1947, the US military has maintained that UFOs are neither signs of aliens from outer space nor any other phenomena that points to a hidden government agenda. As such, numerous attempts by filmmakers utilising these themes on screen to secure DoD or broader government assistance have been rebutted on the grounds that their productions are in opposition to the official position that UFOs do not exist; furthermore, and on the same grounds, the Pentagon has actively discouraged – even censored – certain UFO-themed media products. Still, on occasion, and especially since the 1980s, the Pentagon has shown itself willing to cooperate on certain productions: namely those which downplay the sinister government links to UFO mythology and play up the abilities and willingness of the military to defend civilisation against attack. At the same time, the government has been cautious about associating itself with any film that promotes UFO reality in the context of the extraterrestrial hypothesis, with two officially acknowledged exceptions – Spielberg’s E.T. The Extraterrestrial and the documentary UFOs: Past, Present and Future, and one unofficial exception, Race to Witch Mountain. Official involvement in E.T. can be accounted for on the grounds that it was both self-serving – in that the film depicted NASA scientists as being efficient and compassionate – and that it was not in contravention of its official policy on UFOs as the film’s plot did not plug directly into UFO mythology or depict a pre-existing, large-scale government cover-up. However, for reasons previously outlined, involvement on the part of various government agencies in the latter two productions is difficult to rationalise from an outside perspective.

None of this is to suggest that the government personnel who work on a day-to-day basis with Hollywood have any particular knowledge of or direct orders relating to UFO representations; indeed, it may be simply that the government’s Hollywood/Washington liaisons work to avoid associating the Pentagon with the UFO phenomenon for the very same reason that many people in other spheres of influence avoid the subject: namely, the aforementioned “UFO taboo.” Still, the pattern of the US government’s perception management relating to UFO-based entertainment is hitherto barely known and under-researched. Overall, this pattern indicates that for over six decades national security institutions, or at least powerful factions within them – in contrast to their publicly stated disinterest in UFOs – have closely observed and altered television and film depictions of the phenomenon, typically in line with broader government objectives in an attempt to prevent UFOs from gaining greater legitimacy or political currency.

But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel.” Vice Admiral Roscoe Hillencoetter as quoted in: “Air Forge [sic] Order On ‘Saucers’ Cited; Pamphlet by the Inspector General Called Objects a ‘Serious Business’,” New York Times, 27 Feb., 1960, accessed on Jan., 31, 2011 at: http://select.nytimes.co /gst/abstract.html?res=F50A12F9345D1A728DDDA10A94DA405B808AF1 D3. See also Leslie Kean, UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record, 143.

92 “I do know that the CIA and the US government have been concerned over the UFO phenomenon for many years and that their attempts, both past and recent, to discount the significance of the phenomenon and to explain away the apparent lack of official interest in it have all the earmarks of a classic intelligence cover-up.” Victor Marchetti, “How the CIA Views the UFO Phenomenon,” Second Look, May, 1979, 2-5.

93 In an official United States Senate letter dated 28 Mar., 1975, Goldwater responded to an enquiry regarding his publicly stated interest in UFOs: “About ten or twelve years ago I made an effort to find out what was in the building at Wright Patterson Air Force Base where the [UFO] information is stored that has been collected by the Air Force, and I was understandably denied this request. It is still classified above Top Secret.” In another Senate letter, dated 19 Oct., 1981, Goldwater further stated: “I have had one long string of denials from chief after chief, so I have given up… this thing [the UFO issue] has gotten so highly classified… it is just impossible to get anything on it.” See: Leslie Kean, UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials go on the Record, 243.

94 “For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists and astronauts. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us… I feel that we need to have a top-level, coordinated program to scientifically collect and analyze data from all over the Earth concerning any type of encounter, and to determine how best to interface with these visitors in a friendly fashion.” Gordon Cooper, Col. USAF (Ret.), letter to Ambassador Griffith, Mission of Grenada to the United Nations, New York, 09 Sept., 1978.See Gordon Cooper and Bruce Henderson, Leap of Faith: An Astronaut’s Journey into the Unknown (New York: Harpertorch, 2002), 219-225.

95 In a 1995 letter addressed to Bill Clinton, as part of a sustained dialogue with the White House on the issue of UFO disclosure, Rockefeller requested that the President “personally and specifically direct a review of current government information policy concerning Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI), including Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs).” Rockefeller wrote: “It is widely believed that various agencies of the federal government have substantial information concerning the existence or nonexistence of UFOs, and that it has been unnecessarily withheld from the public as classified. If the information were released, it would be received as evidence of a new spirit of partnership between government and its citizens.” Lawrence S., Rockefeller, “Lifting Secrecy on Information About Extraterrestrial Intelligence as part of the Current Classification Review, letter to President Clinton, 23 Aug., 1995.

96 “I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we’ve been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomena is real… It’s been well covered up by all our governments for the last 60 years or so, but slowly it’s leaked out and some of us have been privileged to have been briefed on some of it… I’ve been in military and intelligence circles, who know that beneath the surface of what has been public knowledge, yes – we have been visited.” Edgar Mitchell as quoted in: “Apollo 14 astronaut claims aliens HAVE made contact – but it has been covered up for 60 years,” The Daily Mail, 24 Jul., 2008, accessed on 30 Jan., 2011 at: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1037471/Apollo- 14-astronaut-claims-aliens-HAVE-contact–covered-60-years.html

97 “The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy and let the truth emerge so that there can be a real and informed debate about one of the most important problems facing our planet today… but it is quite impossible to have that kind of informed debate about a problem that doesn’t officially exist.” Paul Hellyer speaking at a symposium on UFO disclosure, 25 Sept., 2005, accessed on Jan., 30, 2011 and viewable at: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8964281348675417592#docid=- 8731502304852399080

98 “There are many high-ranking military, aviation and government officials who share my concerns [about UFOs]. While on active duty, they have either witnessed a UFO incident or have conducted an official investigation into UFO cases relevant to aviation safety and national security… We want the government to stop putting out stories that perpetuate the myth that all UFOs can be explained away in down-to-earth conventional terms. Investigations need to be re-opened, documents need to be unsealed and the idea of an open dialogue can no longer be shunned… When it comes to [UFO] events… that are still completely unsolved, we deserve more openness in government, especially our own.

Technological Singularity

My blog: http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/

Sorry about the editing problems with the paragraphs running together, something is wrong with blogger today.

In my past two articles I have pointed out that we don’t own the earth and that we don’t even own our own genome, two very important challenges to National Security and human evolution.http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2011/03/we-dont-own-earth.htmlhttp://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2011/03/genome-security-and-sovereignty-by-ed.html The third major issue related to National Security and earth human evolution is a rapidly approaching Technological Singularity. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technological_singularity At the technological singularity boundary the evolutionary rules change just as drastically as the rules of physics change at the boundary of a black hole.http://www.physlink.com/Education/AskExperts/ae251.cfm It is at this Technological Singularity where we begin to rewrite our genome and our external reality giving us superhuman powers and intelligence. In a case of monkey see, monkey do, I believe we are copying this process from covert extraterrestrial contact.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7681252/ns/health-cloning_and_stem_cells A friend of mine at Open Seti suggested to me after reading my article on genome security that my next article should cover the man in the machine or the concept of human machine hybrids.http://surroundingsignifiers.com/2011/03/13/the-future-of-uxui-and-human-machine-integration/

We need to explore what will happen to us and what will we look like when we no longer interface with our computers through keyboard and mouse but through mind-machine interfaces. The first step toward a man-machine hybrid as suggested to me by Clifford Stone is through a bio-suit loaded with microprocessors and sensors, while the second and final step is integration of these devices into our genetic structure as suggested by Ar Borden. Borden has even suggested that we already have these devices in our genome and just need to learn how to activate them. This of course is consistent with Yogi philosophy. I tend to believe both individuals claims of longstanding extraterrestrial contact with different ET races in and out of the classified arena. I have known both of these individuals for many years. I think the main driver behind the approaching Technological Singularity is extraterrestrial contact.

While this contact is still being hidden from the public it is filtering out into the public domain accelerating our technological development in ways suggested by Col. Corso in his book, The Day After Roswell. This has happened before in our history with the covert release of newly discovered Chinese technology in the 12th and 13th centuries by the autocrats of the day, so as to preserve their control over the masses of humanity.http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2010/05/ets-ignite-modern-renaissance-similar.html

I think that many of these extraterrestrial races and civilizations now becoming known to us are already in this technological singularity domain and by association we are ourselves drawn rapidly into the domain as well. Let’s hope we can handle ourselves in a creative rather than a destructive fashion becoming an asset rather than a liability in this domain. I think that this domain is what the Hopi and other Native Americans have foreseen as the Fifth World as described to them by the Sky People in their past. http://www.mondovista.com/flyingshields/http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/esp_leyenda_hopi21.htm I think that the extraterrestrials are shepherding us into this technological or evolutionary singularity for better or for worse but once there our future is for us to decide if we take responsibility for our thoughts and actions.

Genome Security and Sovereignty

My blog: http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/

In my article titled, We Don’t Own the Earth, I pointed out the disturbing fact that we don’t own the earth. http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2011/03/we-dont-own-earth.html We are no more no less, than just the emerging indigenous stakeholder to the earth already colonized by extraterrestrials occupying bases and small colonies under the oceans and deep underground. As people become more aware of extraterrestrial realities they will become even more disturbed by the fact that they don’t even own their own human genome. It’s becoming increasingly clear that extraterrestrials have been exploiting and manipulating our genome since our very beginnings even participating in our creation. Todaywe have learned how to create new species by mixing genomes and genetic material and so we to can now play God as well. This link is really important about about growing human organs in animals and even inserting human brain cells into animals. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7681252/ns/health-cloning_and_stem_cells

We as a species have really got to be careful as we are able to manipulate matter, energy and information at deeper and deeper levels because if we don’t get it right we could bring down our whole society in a blink of an eye. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9bVd3BspIQ I first became aware of this trans-species manipulation of genetic information from stories by the medium Edgar Cayce on the down fall of Atlantis. Even Dr. Jack Sarfatti recently speculated that stories of Atlantis could be precognition of humanities future. This also in Hopi prophecy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUQSNuBt6j8&feature=related

No matter if Atlantis happened in the distant past or is our future the future is now. These recent developments in the ability to manipulate the genome of humans, plants and animals and even come up with creative combinations are very disturbing indeed. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7681252/ns/health-cloning_and_stem_cells On the other hand there are great opportunities opening up in the field of Eugenics if we as a species can handle this properly.

An Internet friend of mine who has had contact with extraterrestrials since the 1950s while working in the arena of global security told me not long ago that his main concern was not disclosure. I got to thinking about that statement and about his knowledge of genetics and physics that is way over my head. Dollars to doughnuts, this was the area he was working on with friendly ET groups and with some not so friendly Annunaki types as well. This issue of genome sovereignty and Security has got to rank very high in the classified world even higher than security issues related to control over the earth environment.

I am beginning to see more of these global security folks coming out into the public domain and who are trying to create NGOs outside of the classified domain to deal with these issues of spatial and genome security of humanity, the emerging indigenous human species on earth. The challenges are really daunting and seem almost insurmountable, but we seem to be well on the way to meeting these challenges in the classified world, but far behind in meeting them in the public domain. The insidious effects of the UFO/ET cover-up on humanities evolutionary development and on the environment are mounting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8DhAuDo48w

The Hopi, the Sky People and Me

My blog: http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/

I first met the Hopi around the middle 1950s as a young boy and I always wanted to go back and visit before I died. Our family’s life was enriched by our contact and relationship with Hopi tribal members and I believe that was true for the Hopi individuals and their family’s we came to respect and love as well. One of the many reasons the Hopi came to trust Dad was that he trusted them with his family and he treated all people equally with love and respect and it’s been the same with the whole family.

I have always had a good excuse to go back because my Dad, Ed Komarek Sr., was an ecologist, businessman and scientist and he always shot a lot of pictures wherever he traveled. Tall Timbers Research Inc. have Dad’s papers in their archives and this includes the Hopi pictures especially some priceless movie footage of Hopi sacred ceremonies that other whites were not allowed to see or film.

I vaguely remember discussions at the time amongst the Hopi elders and Dad. They knew that they were rapidly losing their culture and history and I believe this is why they agreed with Dad to allow him to take pictures for both the Hopi and the nation’s future generations.

It should be remembered that in the 1950s and before, the Hopi were treated badly by whites. Even in the 1950s white tourists would barge right into Hopi houses taking pictures without permission. Our family was one of the very few exceptions who treated the Hopi with love and respect and this was returned. Roland N. who’s last name I can’t spell and is now dead used to come to our Birdsong Plantation to hunt wild turkey and I used to go hunting with him. He was stationed at Englin AFB not too far away. I still have the little bow, arrows and lightning bolt for dancing he made for me.

I remember the Hopi elders teaching me how to dance probably Governor Howard or Peter N. The relationship with the Hopi started when Dad was looking to find primitive types of corn that had drought resistance to hot southern summers. He worked as Greenwood hunting plantation manager, directly under the famous financier John Hay Whitney who also had been ambassador to England. Dad had a special relationship with John where Dad’s scientific work was considered a part of his job at Greenwood. As long as things went smoothly at Greenwood Dad could spend most of his and his brother Roy’s time organizing and building Tall Timbers Research Stationhttp://www.talltimbers.org/ John wanted to do something for southern agriculture that would help pay the bills for Greenwood so he and Dad came up with the idea of a hybrid seed corn business.

Somehow Dad through his scientific circles discovered that Hopi and other Indian corns out west could be planted two feed down where there was moisture in the desert and would sprout and grow to the surface. I remember that Dad had to set up a little exhibit in a glass case to prove this as folks at Greenwood wound not believe it possible. I remember seeing this exhibit. Genetic information from the Indian corn became part of the Dixie 18 southern hybrid corn sold by Greenwood Seed Company.

Dad and my mother Betty Komarek decided that the whole family should go camping in the west as a family vacation. Over several early summers the family spent a lot of time with several Indian tribes but the Hopi turned out to be special. I remember when we came to Hopi land that Dad met with Governor Peter N. who started testing him right off the bat as Dad was fond of saying, and told Dad that he was busy and come back tomorrow. We were allowed to camp out in an Apple Orchard in the desert for the night and Peter was surprised that Dad came back the next day and again told him to come back the next day. Peter figured like most white people that Dad would not have the interest or patience to continue being put off.

On the third day as luck would have it Dad began talking to Peter about his small mammal collecting that he still did as a hobby for the Chicago Field Museum and as luck would have it as Dad pulled out a drawer of stuffed Pocket Gophers. Peter said, “do you catch these?” Dad said, “yes,” and then Peter said, “ come with me!” Dad took along a couple of Gopher traps to the sacred corn field where the Gophers were eating up the corn roots underground. Again as luck would have it the next day Dad caught a Gopher with one of the underground traps.

That is the story of how as Dad used to say broke the ice and was the beginning of a long and unusual friendship that introduced Dad to other Hopi elders and governors. Looking back in hindsight these seemly ordinary events all had deeper spiritual significance as our relationship with the Hopi really took off in that sacred corn patch. This carried into my dreams throughout my life.

I see the pieces falling into place as I plan this trip out west this April. I believe nothing really happens by accident and we can observe this in our daily lives if we pay attention. I think the stories of the extraterrestrial race called the Tall Whites by Charles Hall I am researching for collaborating evidence are not new, and contact goes back in time before the white man as recorded in the sacred stories of the Southwestern Indians. I think it is significant that I go back to Hopi Land before I go on to Nevada to research the Tall Whites.
http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2011/02/tall-white-ets.html

As I write this article I am reminded that the Kachina dolls represent the Sky People http://www.mondovista.com/flyingshields/ and that while the Tall Whites came from space they also lived underground in the Valley of Indian Springs Nevada and from their base they ventured out on the surface and surely came into contact with the indigenous peoples before the white man. I am reminded of the sacred Kivas built underground and the creation stories of the Hopi emerging from the earth to a life above ground.

The first trip out west was the beginning of several summer trips to Hopi land. I think the Hopi younger generation would be surprised to learn that many of the turtle sacred ceremonial rattles, leg rattles, and drums came from Southwest Georgia and from a white man at that. Not only did the Hopi want turtle shells, but fox skins and wild turkey feathers that the family supplied. I would not be surprised that some of this did not end up in Hopi museums.

Not satisfied with just receiving the gifts, the Hopi insisted on giving back in return Kachina dolls, clay vessels, clay figurines and baskets and much of this is at our home place now called Birdsong Nature Center.http://www.birdsongnaturecenter.org/ I remember in my childhood cleaning out the now endangered Gopher Tortoise shells, water turtle shells, and box turtle shells with our hired hand Pete at our barn.

I doubt the deeper spiritual significance of this will go unnoticed by the Hopi of today. While Dad was always the objective scientist on the outside looking in it was not to be the same with me. I chose the spiritual path early in life when I began to get interested in the paranormal by walking into a metaphysical bookstore in Fairbanks Alaska in the middle of winter. This interest progressed to the interest I have in extraterrestrial life today, and what it means for human evolution on earth and in space.

I figure I know just about as much as anybody without a Top Secret security clearance and need to know access. I heard that longtime UFO/ET investigator Wendle Stevens just recently before he died visited Hopi land last year and I thought that spiritually significant. It should be noted that Wendele said that he had met the Tall Whites twice in his life as told to me by Aileen Edwards.

I heard quite a few stories from Dad about his interactions with the Hopi. One of the most interesting was that one farmer told Dad that he was going to let the wind put 2 inches of topsoil on his field. Dad did not believe him but being the scientist that he was put out stakes and sure enough the next year there was two more inches of topsoil on that field. By using brush and branches stuck in the ground the farmer used to wind to cover the field evenly with topsoil.

As a young boy I was much more interested in animals and plants to find around Indian houses, especially horned toads for pets, than learning about people. My sister was more social and she developed and maintained a relationship with Peter N. daughter and traveled to Hopi land several times. She died several years ago and the rest of the family is now gone and I am the last Komarek standing as both my sister and I never had children.

Today I got on the Internet and talked with a Hopi at the Hopi Preservation Center by phone about my father’s archive material. I am happy to be back in touch with the Hopi and am looking forward to once again reestablishing contact with many others of the Hopi.

I wonder if any of the kids my sister and I played with behind the houses where we were shown the sacred eagle are still alive and remember that little red headed white boy and his sister? Or us at that village where when we drove up, the uncles dressed up like demons were chasing down the kids and imprisoning them where their parents had to buy their release with bread if they had not been bad. My parents left the car and when the demons discovered us I locked the doors and my sister went to balling! What a way to keep the kids in line the rest of the year.

As time proceeds I will try to remember more information to share before I return to Hopi land this April on my western tour. Now armed with a new laptop with mobile access I can stay in touch with friends and associates in the UFO/ET community and keep up my Offworld News Service on Facebook as I retrace the steps of our family’s western trips of over 50 years ago.

We Don’t Own The Earth!

My blog: http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/

There are several major challenges for today’s youth to consider involving extraterrestrial realities. The future of mankind, for better or for worse, rests on how well today’s youth conceptualize and address these challenges. The young people of today must foresee, prepare, and adapt to rapid change because humanity is fifty yeas time will be very different from today’s humanity. I believe in 50-100 years time, if present trends continue, that future humanity will be as different as we are today from the horse and buggy days of the 1800s. There will be, I predict, an incredible and rapid restructuring due to the technological advances that will not only transform our world-reality but ourselves as well.

Our first challenge will be the general and shocking recognition that we don’t own the earth. The truth is that it will soon become widely know that there are many technologically powerful extraterrestrial race stakeholders to the earth, many who maintain bases and small colonies deep underground and under the oceans.http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2011/02/tall-white-ets.html ( An interesting sideline to this is that ET children sometimes wander away from the protection of their parents just as ours do.http://thechurchofufology.blogspot.com/2010/12/who-lives-in-our-seas.html Charles Hall also claimed to rescue a TW child in the Nevada desert.)

Even more disturbing for some will be the recognition that we don’t even own our own Genome. I don’t think we really own anything unless we can defend it by rule of law or by force. Obviously we don’t own the copyright to our Genome because ET races seem to be able to exploit our genetic material for their own interests and as of yet we can not do anything about it either through rule of law or through force.

We will soon recognize ourselves to be the emerging indigenous stake holder to the earth. Our developing current situation is much like when indigenous peoples in our past found themselves overwhelmed during the European colonization and had to struggle for independence and a place amongst the League of Nations.

A second and concurrent challenge to humanity will come abut from developments in nano-genetic engineering. It is already being predicted by some genetic scientists that in only 20 years, humanity will unlock the secret to aging and in halting aging, suddenly find ourselves with lifespans of hundreds of years maybe thousands of years.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/6217676/Immortality-only-20-years-away-says-scientist.html#

This already seems to be present today in ET races like the Tall Whites. It would appear that the universe is already filling up with technologically advanced species and with these niches already filled, we should not assume we can deal with a huge overpopulation problem by emigration into space.

The third major challenge is the eugenic challengehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugenics and follows from this second challenge, this whole idea of completely re-engineering our bodies and minds and our environment within we exist. In a very sort period, a fraction of a enhanced lifespan, we may no longer look nor feel human, having restructured ourselves and integrated into ET reality on par with other ET races.

In a blink of a eye earth humanity could suddenly and irrevocably have metamorphosed as predicted by Arthur C. Clark‘s book, Childhoods End. Any UFO/ET informed person can easily see that Clark was drawing from secret special access to ET knowledge obtained by governments in the 1950s. Clarke was attempting to prepare the public for what was to come within a short 100 years.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childhood%27s_End

Our children must know and understand that the troubles of this generation are but the growing pains of a new humankind and a new earth. They should not be discouraged or distracted by the violence, pessimism and triviality and fear of today’s realities, but instead strive forward with a open and honest youthful optimism so lacking in today’s older generation. Rare are those of the older generation who in old age don’t fail and fall into depravity of mind and soul. Today’s youth must cultivate and hold tight the ideals of a bright vision of humankind so as to lift themselves up out of the difficult realities of today by creating a better tomorrow.

Networking Business and UFO/ET Disclosure

My blog: http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/

Jonothon Boutler has come up with a really good concept to network global pro-disclosure business interests with extraterrestrial disclosure interests. He is already executing on this concept and would like folks with both business interest and UFO/ET disclosure interests around the globe to get in touch with him at synarc2000@yahoo.com

I have been communicating with Jonothon via Facebook and email for awhile and am impressed with what he is trying to do and that he is being persistent in pushing this idea. I hope those in my networks with business interests anywhere around the globe will communicate with Jonothon and help to build this network.

The idea is to mirror the CIA’s anti-disclosure business networks around the globe with pro-disclosure business networks. At about the same time as Jonothon got in touch with me I was made aware that Carol Rosin had also come up with this concept of a civilian pro-disclosure organization mirroring the UFO/ET control structure of MJ 12-NSA . My thinking is that Jonothon’s business pro-disclosure network could become a very significant part of the larger model as envisioned by Carol.

Robert Salas has also been thinking along these same lines in this article. Robert makes the case that disclosure is a zero sum game and the key is to learn from the other players so as get ones freedom and liberty back. This involves a mirroring operation as I see it.http://www.theufochronicles.com/2011/01/ufo-disclosure-as-zero-sum-game.html

Jonothon said, “The aim is to link Saudis who have an interest in alternate energy, and or UFOs and its disclosure, and who want to link with business projects in Europe and the States. We also have an interest in archaeological history and cover-ups in the Arab peninsula.” Jonothon also tells me he is very interested in South America where I am developing good contacts on Facebook.

Jonothon continues. “This business will fund the disclosure projects and also act as a cover in the outer world. We need to know what business and the aspects the people are interested in and then we can know how to link them.

Jonothon elaborates further in a recent email to me. “I am meeting my Saudi friend tonight and then organizing a meeting with Saudi expats who are interested in the link of Disclosure, Alternate Energy and business.. Can you ask your Saudi connections if they are interested in this combo?”

Also there is a lot of hidden antique/archaeological sites that are covered up in Saudi that the Wahhabi’s don’t want people to see like the Giant tomb of Eve at Jedd-ah [The name Jedd-ah means Grandmother] Also the true Mt Sinai is in the North of the country. Also I would like any info from your Saudi contacts on any crashed craft and UFOs.

We need to know the various business potentials so that we can link the various business projects together with various skills. The aim in Saudi is like it will be in South America, to combine a business project as an overlay to the Disclosure project, this will also pay for the Disclosure and you may need to go to Saudi and meet people so the funding will pay for you to go and expenses etc. I spoke to my Lebanese diplomat friend in Paris and she is interested linking on the disclosure via business. Regards Jonothon.”

The Greater Threat: ET or NSA

The Greater Threat: ET or NSA

If we are to understand the UFO/ET cover-up and its severe consequences to human evolution and national security we need to carefully study the evidence and documents available in credible books like, UFOs and the National Security State, Clear Intent and Above Top Secret. We can see that with hindsight the greatest threat to the human species and national security may not be ET colonization and subjugation, rather our global leaders past and present violent overreaction to contact in the 1940’s and 1950’s that continues to this day. To get a flavor of the paranoia of the times check out the Fontes Briefing.http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2007/11/1958-fontes-saucer-briefing.html

There is considerable evidence that global allied leaders like Roosevelt,http://seekingmoinfo.com/default.aspx Churchill,http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/08/05/churchill-ordered-ufo-cover-up/ Truman and Eisenhower (lots of documents herehttp://www.majesticdocuments.com/ ) felt that extreme measures were needed to resist the threat of invasion and subjugation. In 1947 the National Security Act began the process that created the National Security Apparatus that today I believe has become more a threat to human survival and evolution than the original threats associated with ET contact. Is this a classic case of the medicine being worse than the cure?

Eisenhower realized only to late the danger of the military-industrial complex that he helped create.
http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2011/01/the-tyranny-of-defense-inc/8342/1/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+kow-reading+%28Kings+of+War-Reading%29&utm_content=Twitter#
These allied leaders seemed to exclusively had threats on their mind rather than opportunities, and so they inadvertently unbalanced human evolution by cutting out those of us who might have advised against fearful hasty reactions and those who would point out the benefits of contact.

Many allied civilian and military leaders were students of history like Churchill and looked to Japan‘s successful use of extreme measures against the colonial invaders that included playing one against the other, isolating trade to certain restricted ports, and even death to civilians and Europeans having unauthorized contact with each other in Japan.http://www.markville.ss.yrdsb.edu.on.ca/history/west/ch9.ppt#256,1,Imperialism, Fearful global leaders failed to appreciate that even though Japan successfully resisted European invasion, the runaway national security apparatus Japan constructed to do so caused the almost total destruction of Japan and the death of millions of people in World War Two.

Evidence for this draconian Japan model of colonial resistance shows up in government documents. In Richard Dolan‘s UFO’s and the National Security State, pages 348-349, The unknown author in the NSA document wrote. “If ‘they’ discover you it is an old but hardly invalid rule of thumb. ‘they’ are your technological superiors.” Dolan writes, “Human history surely demonstrates the danger to weaker cultures when confronted by a technologically superior civilization, a loss of identity and absorption by the others. Citing the example of Japan (the NSA author says.) “He noted, that it is at least theoretically possible for a “weaker” society to survive such a confrontation.” The NSA document from the NSA website.http://www.nsa.gov/public_info/_files/ufo/ufo_hypothesis.pdf

Today with hindsight some global political leaders and even some in the MJ 12, NSA, CIA, NRO runaway security apparatus created to address the ET threat are beginning to realize their draconian reactions to the perceived extraterrestrial threat have now created an even bigger threat to national security and human evolution. I have in the past suggested that this mismanagement of ET contact is quite similar to the mismanagement of fire in natural ecosystems as in Yellowstone National Park. In self delusion the very people that created the problem, the huge accumulation of fuel through fire suppression, tried to alleviate the problem on their own. Without outside help from competent controlled burning specialists they tried to control burn and again this incompetence allowed the fire to get out of control and burned Yellowstone to the ground in catastrophic fire.

One is lead to wonder if our present leaders inside and outside of the runaway shadow government military-industrial-political process bubble are making a similar mistake managing ET contact as did the managers of natural ecosystems in Yellowstone National Park. The Japan model seems to have had two very disastrous outcomes. The runaway national security state in Japan pushed Japan into a disastrous war while in the USSR the runaway national security state tried to maintain technological and defensive parity with the U.S. with causing collapse and disaster.

National Security people tend to ignore those of us that say, ” The means is the end, and the a destructive means cannot and will not give a long term positive outcome.” Contrary to many in the National Security State there there is a very important place for the rule of law and ethics! Ethics and oversight keep things from getting out of control. The means fashions the end result. Duh.

Evolution proceeds no matter the poison we choose. ET is not standing still and the present slow progress of government disclosure is in my opinion too little too late. Instead of slow conservative official acknowledgment of ET contact through global document dumps of low level material and the official academic bodieshttp://www.redorbit.com/news/space/1976546/experts_call_on_un_to_prepare_for_extraterrestrials/slow release of information, we need much more radical and rapid solutions to disclosure.

It is the NSA http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread48687/pg1that really holds the keys to the Kingdom near the apex of the extraterrestrial control pyramid and if they will not willingly themselves give public access to the huge accumulation of data some of us believe they have in their vaults on ET civilizations, culture, science, politics, exopolitics, technology etc., they must may forced by the citizenry to give access as in the WikiLeaks way for the overall good of society. The NSA’s huge database is the repository of the information the Shadow Government has on ET, and I believe it comes from, hacked computers obtained from crashes and maybe even the alien’s own computer networks, alien interrogations, diplomatic channels, cultural and technology exchanges, treaties and trade etc.

Our species survival from ET contact is at stake alright, but maybe not so much from ET directly, but by from our leaders own well meaning dysfunctional destructive reactions to that contact. My father was fond of saying. “The road to hell is paved with the best of intentions.” Not until we have full and open disclosure will these threats diminish as ordinary citizens and officials not at the apex of society become part of the contact paradigm.

MJ 12 AF General’s Stepson Talks ET

My blog: http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/

A friend of mine Jeff Adams struck up a conversation with a individual involved in the patriot community and pretty soon they got to talking about UFO/ET. Jeff knows the guy’s real name but obviously does not want it spread around. The following email conversations were from a few months ago before Avatar came out. I only published bits and pieces of this in other articles in the past for fear of getting this individual in trouble and ending the conversation prematurely.

Jeff said go ahead and put this all out as both he and this individual have moved on to other interests. I see no reason to expect this individual was lying to Jeff and most likely did not realize that this information would become public. There is some good stuff here that hopefully others can collaborate in this email exchange. Jeff also talked to this person by phone.

To Jeff: I could tell you some stuff that would curl your hair, and make you go HUH?A lot of it borders on sci-fi and the unbelievable. What is it you want to know? When we actually put a man on the moon? Our moon-base(yes we have one) Experimental aircraft, or where our tech really has led us? Let me know, and I can tell you what I know! Plus the fact that my step dad worked for NASA, as well as my brother and cousin (both of whom are a-nauts)

Don’t like the AR-15 myself. Would rather have an AK. Or an M1A(M-14 clone), G-3 or FN. And a good 45 auto or 9mm. to back it up. A scope mounted long range shooter is also good. And lots of ammo and spare parts, scattered over a wide area. Food for at least a week, and med supplies( and the knowledge of how to use it). Store stuff, here and there, so if you get cut off from resupply, you can still get to it.

To Jeff:
Here’s a condensed version of my step-dads report: In August of 1982 a family of 8 was reported missing from their small farm north of Mora , Sweden [this is near lake Siljan, in the middle of the country]The family consisted of a father, mother, 4 children(2 boys, 2 girls) an uncle and a grandfather. Ages of the children was between 8 and 14.The family was reported missing after the father and uncle failed to show up for work on Monday at a local knife factory [Mora Knife Works]. No signs of a struggle were seen in the home, however the following odd things were noted: family pictures were missing from their frames, clothing was missing, closets were empty, tools were missing from a shed, livestock and pets were missing, hunting weapons were gone, and a family Bible was missing [every good Swedish family has a family Bible].

All three men were in the same home-guard unit. All of their weapons and uniforms were missing. There was no history of mental illness. No history of child/sexual abuse. No history of drug/excess alcohol use. Money was found in bank accounts. The family was not in serious debt. NATO HQ North in Brussels was contacted when several odd depressions and burn marks were noted in a field in the back of the house.LT.GEN ‘L’ [my step-dad] and a team were dispatched to investigate.

They were shown several depressions in the ground located midway between the house and the back edge of the property. These depressions formed a circle 48 meters across. It consisted of 8 ‘holes’, 4 small, 4 large, forming the circle. The large ones were 1 meter across, the small ones .75 meters across. The holes were evenly spaced and alternated, big, small, big, and etc. The inside of the holes were burned to ash, and were irradiated. In the center of the circle was an area of smashed vegetation twisted in a clockwise manner [like a crop circle].It was not irradiated, but emitted large amounts of EME [electro-magnetic energy].

The family has yet to be found. My step-dads last notation was in August 2002, so he was following up on the case. His last notation was: I must assume from the evidence and the lack of bodies or body parts,that the family in question has departed this planet on a voluntary basis for places or parts unknown.

This is where I come in.In 1989, and again 1999, I visited the site. On both trips I noted that grass still would not grow in the hole, even though the hole were filled in. Bugs would not enter the circle, which was OK for the new owner, who said ‘once you get past the tingly sensation on the back of your neck, it’s a great place to sit and read’! If you went into the circle, you got the sensation that you get from sticking a wet hand in a light socket! And this was 7 and 17 years after the fact! My conclusion? Same as my step-dads.

To Jeff: Just got off with some friends in the know. Here is what they had to add. They also told me what to look for — (deleted for security reasons)There are 7 major and 57 minor alien races in our section of the universe. If we expand to include our galaxy, the number rises to 11 and 124. So much for the ‘no life in the rest of the universe’ theory!! LOL 🙂

I make a study of transplanted colonies, so I’ll drive in that direction for a while. The nearest human colony not on earth in the trinary star system of Alpha Centari.The colony is, I have been told, on a moon of the 4th. planet. Imagine Endor w/o the Ewoks. The colony has been there for years (i.e. 1970’s) and was seeded by people from Earth by the Nordics. These people are what I call ‘choice primitives’, that is, they live at a tech level that is lower then their home planet, by choice. They live, I am told at a level equal to Earth ca.1940. Think ‘The Village’ with airmail! LOLThe colony is aware of ET’s and spacecraft, and interact with them for trade purposes. They are an agricultural and forestry producing planet(that’s a duh).

Don’t know the population, but I would assume that it is small. Most are, I would assume, from Europe and North America.The Nordics and the Greys had an alliance which fell apart at this same time. The Nordics, who can be quite warlike when they want to be, opened up a can of whoopass on the Greys, and the war cost the Greys a lot of ground.The Greys were apparently using the Nordics for their own purposes, and the Nordics were not amused. The US/EU/UN still works with the Greys, so we all know where this going to end.

It would appear that the Nordics and their friends are the only allies we have out there.The rest want us as slave labor, breeding material, or food. Yes there are aliens that eat people.There are, I have been told, several other colonies out there, within ‘shouting distance of Earth. I for one have no problem in believing this, and have been studying it for years.

Apparently,the colonies are arranged by race (whites are NOT the only race that the Nordics deal with), and then by language. So if, you were a white English speaking guyyou would be put with your own kind. The tech level is kept low on purpose. One, low tech worlds don’t attract attention to passers by. Two, they ( Both the Nordics and the colonists) don’t want to wind up in the same place we are now.Makes sense to me.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t think the Nordics are going to come down and save us all! Far from it. I think they are very selective in who they choose. And, they don’t appear to take large groups. One or two people at a time. Although I have heard rumors that have taken families of up to 8!About their ships.

The N’s ( I’m getting tired of spelling out the word) use the ‘classic’ flying saucer, and have for years. They also use the triangle shaped ships as well. Difference is, the triangles are armed. Their answer to an PT boat or Sub-chaser. They are used as AMC’s as well. AMC=Armed Merchant Cruiser or Carrier. Those big triangles in AZ a few years back? Our buds the N’s.And guess what they wanted? Sand. Yes, sand. Sand, salt, lead and water are the 4 biggest trade items in the ‘verse!!The saucers are more benign. But they don’t seem to using them much anymore. See more triangles now.

Billy Myer or Mayer.You should read up on him. Guy had one arm and lived in Switzerland back in the 60’s and 70’s. Everyone thought he was a nut. He had contact of the 4th kind with the N’s.I guess it would not be an abduction if you left voluntarily, huh? HMM 🙂 More on leaving this place next time.

To Jeff: I took the opposite approach and went low key. My step-father was a more then one star general in the USAF,and even my men in the guard don’t know it. Well, maybe one or two, along with the AG, who happened to know my dad from back in Vietnam. I really don’t want folks to know who I am, or how well trained I and my men really are. To put in on the table, I have served in two navies and four armies, been to 36 countries, all 50 states, and all the provinces in Canada. I worked for the JPL and NASA, so I know how the bastards work. It’s just trying to figure out how to defeat them that I am having a problem with. (Patriot conversation omitted)

To Jeff: Some notes on Alpha-Centauri: The primary star of AC is only a little bigger then our sun. A gas giant could circle it and still have a moon that supported life. The main planet would be about 3-4 AU’s away from AC1, or about double the distance that Mars is from the Sun. The moon would have to be 750k to 1m miles from the planet, or about 4 times the distance from Earth to the moon. A year would be about 1.5 earth years long. AC2 sits at a distance of 22 AU’s, give or take, and would not give off a lot of radiation or light.

When the moon was facing it,it would be equal to a full moon an a clear night on Earth. That noted, the ‘sun’ would always be shining, as the moon would be facing one or the other all the time. AC3 sits at a distance of .14 LY, and is to small to matter much. Assuming the moon is Mars or Earth sized, the gravity level would be about normal.

Since the N’s are from a thin air, lower gravity world, one would assume that they don’t spend much time on the moon, which I am guessing is very Earth like. Since it is supposed to be forested, by trees of great size, one could also assume that it has animal life of great size as well. Just thought I would throw this past you!

To Jeff:
The tall greys are the most prominent group that we are interacting with. They made contact in the 1930’s and have been working with us hand in hand since the late 40’s.The triangle ships are operated by the Nordics. They come, I am told , from a star cluster in the 7 sister’s/Pleaides Group. The wormholes use huge amounts of energy, and when operated from earth, tend to draw attention. You can only keep them ‘fired up’ for short periods of time before they break down.Also, wormhole generators work best away from a gravity well such as Earth.

Now, mind you, I am a Marine Engineer by trade, so some of this is guess work, or what I have been told.Or common sense! Questions are how you gain info. No ? no info!! :)My step-father was connected to MJ-12, so I’m not worried. At most I will get yelled at and called a nut. ‘course they say that about Hoagland and Lear as well!

Have never met a grey. Met Nordics, or people that I though were Nordics. They seem to be on the good guy’s side in the war down here, and have a strong distaste for the greys! There is rumor of grey/human hybrids. I have seen video and pics, but have never met one. Sad, but the video of the hybrid that I saw was, well, kinda cute ( it was a female).Very thin with almost asian features and long dark hair, grey eyes and a small face. If you saw her on the street, you would think that she was a young asian schoolgirl who didn’t eat much! Scary!!

To Jeff:
The base on Mars is the other end of the wormhole. They don’t like to send people through it though. People are send by STL ships, so yes one could conclude that OSW(Office of Solar Warden) is involved!

Nordic society is well, Nordic society. Imagine what the Vikings would have become had they not been hit by the black death and the dark ages. No, they spoke to me, although I am sure they are telepathic, they preferred to speak to me. They enjoy being around ‘people of their kind’, that is well, folks from a Scandinavian or European background. Simple logic there I guess.

Some of there ships are huge, being over 300 meters in length. Never been on one, but would sure like to. The Nordics appear to be galactic babysitters.But since most people are in denial, they ignore most people Folks that are multilingual, real well trained in any field of the military or sciences, can expect a visit. Hell, they may visited you, and you didn’t know it!!

Not all of them are tall. the ones I have seen look quite normal and varied from human standards, although I have never seen a fat one!LOL :)Don’t know much of the planets they call home, except that they are a long way from here, and that they have FTL drives on there ships that ‘fold’ space and that they like strawberry ice cream and stormy weather!

I suspect that the Nordics may have been responsible for the disapperance of the Norse colonies on Greenland and of the ones in the US. FYI the Norse made it as far west as WA state and had a colony in OK.Also had folks in OH, MN and WI, a long time before Columbus got lost. They may have had a colony in BC as well. Still working on that one. Remember that the NW passage was open then, so one could, if they were really brave, sail it around AK to BC.The colonies were isolated and the Nordics needed, um well, genetic material, and so they came and got them. The Norse would have thought they were Gods and gone right along. Well, gonna go!
———————————————–
The following is another similar disappearance case that I just saw on Facebook that sounds similar to the disappearance case above that inspired me to write up the case above and get it out in the public domain:

Ufo Sydney Australia
‎…On April 20, maritime authorities caught up with the boat and boarded it. They found the three-man crew missing in circumstances which they described as being “strange.”[2][3] “What they found was a bit strange in that everything was normal; there was just no sign of the crew.” — Jon Hall, Queensland’s Emergency Management office.[2]

In a statement delivered on the day of the boarding, officials with the Queensland Emergency Management Office revealed that the yacht was in serviceable condition and was laid out as if the crew were still on board. Food and flatware were set out on the table, a laptop computer was set up and turned on, and the engine was still running.

Officials also confirmed that the boat’s emergency systems, including its radio and GPS were fully functional, and that it still had its full complement of life jackets.[2][3] According to news sources, there was even a small boat still hoisted on the back of the boat and the anchor was up.[6] The only signs, other than the disappearance of the crew, that were out of the ordinary, were damage to one of the boat’s sails and that there was no life raft on board (it is unknown whether there ever was one aboard).[2][3]

The Tall White ET’s

My blog: http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/

“Worse yet was the behavior of a Tall White who was reportedly climbing the steps of a Washington DC government building to meet with a presumably limited number of US legislators. Hall said a CIA guard tried to help a Tall White female up the stairs at the Congressional building, but the guard accidentally hurt the Tall White female, who threatened the CIA guard and he had to beg her to spare his life. Apparently, the female threatened to kill him with a pencil-like device, right there, on the stairs.” George LoBuono quoting Hall.

“Hall saw Air Force generals return from distant, hours-long trips with Tall Whites on their antigravity craft. Hall says, “When the USAF Generals got off the craft they were laughing like they had just come back from the world’s best amusement park.”” George LoBuono

It would appear that information on the extraterrestrial race called the Tall Whites has passed under the radar of most people in the UFO/ET field. I have found the material by Charles Hall and backed up by several witnesses who have reported seeing the Tall Whites to be compelling. This is the key Open Seti article on Charles Hall and the Tall Whites. http://openseti.org/Hall.html . If you look to the right margin of this article there is a list of links to other Tall White Interviews and material. I will add more links to the bottom of this article as I find them.

I would like to be clear that even though Charles Hall has given incredible detail about the TW there is much supporting evidence from other sources making this case pretty darn solid. Here is another interesting bit of supporting evidence found by Tom Fox who himself has seen the TW near Indian Springs NV while camping in the desert and in Las Vegas. I will put his story below the other links I have been accumulating that show many people have been interacting with the TW over the years.

George LoBuono said: I connected the dots on this one : “Col Major Wilson had begun his duties at the Papoose Lake installation, still not knowing what existed 30 stories farther down. He had been well indoctrinated in Top Secret work and knew all the consequences of keeping the nation’s most guarded secrets. The past six years had been slow and boring, he recalls, and other than what he saw at Wright-Patterson AFB, he felt that he was in a vacuum going nowhere.

He was sitting in his office at S-4 mulling this over one morning, when a Lieutenant Colonel Bennet came in. He asked Wilson if he was busy, (“Like he gave a damn,” Wilson recalls), and said “Let’s go.” Wilson followed the Lieutenant Colonel, and they eventually wound up two stories down at the super-secret “S-4” UFO technology area. As they came out on a landing there, Wilson saw eight different kinds of UFOs!

There were intellectual-looking people all over the area, whom he guessed were scientists. He glanced at Bennett, who cut off his implied question with a curt “Forget it.” The Colonel and the Major went into a cubicle where there were about twenty officers and civilians sitting around. Wilson was startled, when a woman came in who was at least eight feet tall. There was not an ounce of excess fat on her body, he recalls. She wore a strange-looking jump suit, which had a * HI * pattern on the right side above the breast line. To this day Wilson recollects the details of this striking encounter.

“The woman had finely-chiseled features. Her blonde hair cascaded neatly past her shoulders. Her eyes were the bluest blue I’d ever seen. Somehow she was different. Little did I know then, how different! She sat a large crystal on the table, and without warning, her fingers began to glow as she ran them over this crystal. A 3-D hologram began to form above it! I looked around the room and everyone’s mouth was hanging open, and suddenly I noticed mine was, too. Little did I realize that at that moment my life would forever be changed. My past teachings slipped from me as I stared. My whole concept of life did a 180-degree turn, as I watched the Hologram, complete with sound, unfold the mysteries of the past and the present, and of other worlds.”

Colonel Wilson related that among the scenes, which the female extraterrestrial’s crystal hologram displayed for the assembled group, was the history of the Earth and of extraterrestrial involvement with it. That involvement included fashioning the consciousness of Jesus and sending him to live among Earthlings to point to a better way to understand life and to live. The extraterrestrial woman also showed the officers and scientists scenes from inhabited planets of other star systems. Wilson was transformed by this experience. When it was over, I knew that, whatever part I was to play in all of this, my life as I knew it had ended forever.”

I have run across cases that seem to be Tall White cases on the Internet. This Russian case in which divers were killed in a severe defensive reaction sounds a lot like the Tall Whites.http://www.alieneight.com/alien-encounters-the-russian-navy-and-aquatic-ufos.htm I have also seen cases on Colin Andrews’s website involving TW and crop circles. (I will put in these links when I find them again.)

The many reports of Tall Whites, not just by Charles Hall, have not yet captured the imagination of the UFO community. For this reason the TW have not been trashed by the usual contactee flakes and charlatans making a living off of UFO/ET lecture circuit What Charles Hall has done is quietly slip the information on the TW to the UFO/ET community in his four books and his interviews with little fanfare or publicity. The intention I suppose is to let the information slowly trickle out in a manner that educates the public about the TW. The NSA’s Dan Sherman did this same sort of thing.

The Charles Hall story takes place on the Nellis AFB bombing ranges, 1,2,3, and 4 up toward Tonopath. Steven Greer interviewed a very credible whistle-blower who describes extremely tight security on the Tonopath ranges. If there is nothing up there then why such tight security? http://www.youtube.com/csetiweb#p/a/u/0/yytSNQ2ogD4

I was a little late to the party as the Open Seti folks, Stribner, Sweeps,Michael Salla and Kivin Smith got on to this before me. I have been catching up and after I reading the last two books by Charles I should have read everything that is available so far. Of course I would not have got so interested in the TW if I had not run into other witness testimony that backs up Charles’s story. One of the Open Seti folks ran into a TW in Laughlin Nevada, Sweeps in the UK saw a couple of TW going through his garbage after he publicized them in Europe, and Tom Fox who I met on the Internet has run into the TW both in the desert and in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Recently George Flier had a 1970s satellite photo of a TW ship on his Fliers Files. http://brumac.8k.com/DMSP/DMSP.html The photo fit the description of the bus like ship described in detail in Charles second book. The picture was sent to Charles and was confirmed by him. This craft is described also in this Kevin Smith interview with Charles. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xArb2ldO9FA&feature=related Charles communicates very little with the public and still is working as an atomic physicist in New Mexico in the black world. I am told he is closely monitored.

It’s my guess is he is working on electrogravitic propulsion systems as he started reading the TW’s minds on their propulsion systems in the encounters of the 1960’s as recorded in his books. This was of concern to the TW at the time. According to Charles they did not mind sharing with the military, shuttle technology, but deep space propulsion systems was another matter.

There are only a couple of references to other ET types in Hall’s material. He said the the TW lost a war to the Annunaki and the following. Tom Fox said, “Airman Charles Hall suggests that Air Force generals thought the Tall Whites were near-enemies of the grays. Hall: “I am quite certain that the Tall Whites and the Short Greys hate each other. I am quite certain that the Tall Whites would never permit the Short Greys to come anywhere near their base areas or near to their housing areas or anywhere that their children might be playing, etc.” But what is Hall’s basis for that assumption? I asked him, and he replied, “I was with the Tall Whites for over two years. Various remarks were made, and in particular, the Teacher (a Tall White) made the point quite clear to me.” (Charles Hall, personal email to the author 3-13-09).”

Those that know Charles say he is very religious and truthful. He did write the first two books that I have read as fiction, but he has said later that they are factual except for some changes of places and names. I have ordered the second two books but have not received them yet.

Here are more links from Tox Fox’s Facebook notes page some are the same as on the Open Seti key Charles Hall page.

Tom Fox’s experience with the TW.
By Tom Fox on Friday, August 20, 2010 at 8:36am

It actually started back in the 60’s I did a homework assignment were I clipped out a time magazine article entitled- Who were they? It showed a picture of the Talls all dressed-up having crashed a embassy ball ! Yet, these ambassadors from N Spain were not invited, tried to fit in . Hall tells me the issues of the magazine were recalled .

My dad worked for the FBI. In the ’80s at a used book store I came across the lost book of the Talls, written by a NJ housewife who befriended military personal , photos of Talls were used in book. I tried emailing many ufo-book-sources ,to no avail. Charles Hall once owned the book yet it vanished. Anyone who has or knows of this book please contact me. It’s about 150 pages ,dark front cover, black n white photos.

It must of been confiscated. Then in ’90 I came out of the bathroom of the Tropicana Casino late one night and noticed 4 Talls, one was climbing the stairs in a most peculiar manor. I later found it was due to not being used to earth gravity, thus a new arrival. I was dumbfounded. I felt guilty for staring as they turned to watch me.

Charles Hall informed me who they were. It was 15 yrs later that I heard the Charles Hall interview .He informed me that they play poker at nearby casinos. I went back and confirmed that those stairs led to the poker room! (The casino was remodeled but workers shared what it was like then. In 2005 I camped near their Indian Springs Base – scout craft came out one night, signaled my light, it went in reverse and hid in a cloud.

A few nights later one levitated-about nearby. A Tall guard descended down from the ridge. A few nights later one appeared behind where I was camped . It was levitating and dancing about . I tried signaling, it would stop and would change its luminosity, then go back to various movements. I walked towards it ,yet it was miles to the back and before long I couldn’t see it anymore. One thing I didn’t mention was that another light which looked like a being illuminated descended from the Wheeler Ridge area . This I believed to be a TW-guard.
