(“These globalists who have manipulated world history for decades, if not centuries, are working or plan to turn the once-free and prosperous republic of the United States into a socialist state populated by dumbed-down and destitute zombies draining dry the nation’s money supply….It is truly a trillion-dollar conspiracy.” Jim Marrs, The Trillion-Dollar Conspiracy, Harper Collins Publishers, 10 East 53rd Street, New York, N.Y. 10022, 2010, 452 pages, $26.99.)
THE NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEBT
The late Jim Marrs had become a major researcher and writer into topics of conspiracy and government cover-ups. Perhaps his greatest work is Cross Fire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy, which was one of the books that prefaced Oliver Stone’s movie JFK. Marrs’ Rule By Secrecy covered a large range of history and conspirators behind major movements. Also interesting tomes were The Rise of the FourthReich which spoke on the continued rule of Fascism.
Marrs may have missed the mark somewhat in his Alien Agenda by merely quoting or promoting some of the more questionable aspects of the UFO Mystery and a supposed extraterrestrial presence, such as the file on Frank Kaufman of the Roswell UFO story. As events turned out, Hoffman proved himself a hoaxer. Later, in Alien Agenda, Marrs highlighted ‘remote viewers’ looking into the future of humankind and seeing aliens coming to aid humankind (such as in ecological disaster). If aliens were going to aid us in our humanly plights, they would have been here already intervening during our wars and problems such as the 9/11 attack and the Wall Street Collapse of 2008.
Which was the problem with Ufology: It has fallen prey to New Age religion with its own priesthood of psychics, prophets, abductees, and hoaxing. Even a local St. Louis group had all the trappings with a Svengali-like pastor/psychic (who said the late Allen J. Hynek was a ‘reptilian’) and claimed 80% accuracy in his predictions (and, similarly, seeing Praying Mantis-type space people involved).
This is why The Trillion-Dollar Conspiracy had become most refreshing. It seemed to stick to the hard headlines and facts on the decadence in recent news. In particular, there was the October 2008 financial collapse of America into a more than 15 trillion dollar debacle. Porter Stansberry, research analyst, said in the April 8, 2011 S&A Digest that the debt was actually $50 trilliondollars and increasing. There was the placing in 2011 of approximately $130,000 dollar debt on the head of every citizen in America; the creation of extravagant “goldenparachutes” — payments to financial executives despite their failing companies.
The Socialistic downfall of America was forecasted as early as 1934 in an editorial cartoon in the Chicago Tribune entitled “Planned Economy or Planned Destruction?” The article depicted ‘young pinkies’ from Columbia and Harvard who are shoveling from a cart housing Leon Trotsky and he was saying: ‘‘Plan of action for U.S – Spend! Spend! Spend! Under the guise of recovery–bust the government–blame the capitalists for the failure–junk the Constitution and declare a dictatorship.”
Communist Norman Matoon Thomas, Socialist Party of America, heralded his run for the Presidency between 1928 and 1948, said: “The American people will never knowingly adapt socialism; but under the name ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” Thomas retired in 1948 because he believed that both, the Democratic and Republican party had adopted every plank of the Socialists’ platform and there was no need for the alternative Socialist Party.
Marrs saw this culmination in the New World Order promised by Adolf Hitler and signed off by President H.W. Bush. These Globalists were above petty nationalism and are now guided by what Janine Wedel spoke of in Shadow Elite as “flexions” who manipulate global economics as “poker chips” in some vast, unseen, poker game– or some Ponzi Scheme–of which they stand aloof and above–and utilize to their own advantage.
Janine Wedel Knows the Flexions
The Rockefellers, Jack Schiff, Elihu Root, J.P. Morgan, The Harriman family, and others, sponsored the Russian Revolution and the Bolsheviks. The same globalists sponsored National Socialism in Germany; John J. McCloy, Schroeder Bank attorneys Allen Dulles and John Foster Dulles, Prescott Bush, director of Union Banking Corporation and the Hamburg America Shipping Line.
Schroeder Bank Attorneys John Foster and Allen Dulles
The late Hollywood producer Aaron Russo quoted Nick Rockefeller (a participant in the World Economic Forum and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations): “The end goal is to get everybody chipped, to control the whole society, to have bankers and the elite people control the world.”
Marrs laid out a step-by-step chronology of the demise of America and the economic collapse of 2008-2011; presently at a $19-Trillion (with a capitol “T”) dollar debt in 2017 (and rising) — insolvent and bankrupt:
William K. Black, professor of economics and law at the University Of Missouri School Of Law in Kansas City, said the mortgage debacle was centered on the creating of Triple-A rated bonds that did not use verified incomes, assets, or employment. Called “liar’s loans,” they were deceitful and fraudulent, and the banks that were involved knew it.
William K. Black
(Black told PBS Bill Moyers in April 2009) “The Busch administration essentially got rid of regulation, so if nobody was looking, you would be able to do this with impunity and that’s exactly what happened…the sub-prime and what’s called Alt-A [risky alternative A paper loans, liar’s loans]…they knew they were frauds.”
Indy Mac failed on July 11, 2008, selling $80 billion worth of ‘them‘ in 2006. Other banks followed: Pigs in the poke decorated in pink ribbon fraudulently called ‘Triple-A.’ The FBI was aware of this movement as early as September 2004. Bush’s war on terrorism eclipsed this vastoceanof fraud.
Glass-Steagall Act of 1934 had been the only protection holding back a tsunami of fraud from “banksters” (big banks looting customers for the benefit of a small group of insiders). Brooksley Born, former CFTC Chairperson, said that, beginning in the Clinton years, all protective regulatory exemptions had been removed; creating a market that was virtually unregulated and completelyopaque. The Enron debacle happened from regulatory exemption resulting from Mrs. Gramm’s chairing the CFTC from 1988 to 1993. She sat on Enron’s board of directors in the Audit Committee. Enron drained more than $10 billion dollars from shareholders.
Gramm’s husband, Texas Republican, Senator Phil Gramm, described protesting American to economic losses, as “a nation of whiners.” He helped pass the landmark Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act in 1999 that again allowed banks to engage in insurance and brokerage activities. It was voted in unanimously and signed by PresidentClinton.
“Supporters of the bill used an old trick that was used to pass the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Like the Federal Reserve Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act was introduced on the last day before the Christmas holiday and was never debated by either congressional body,” said Marrs. “This bill, fully initiated by and supported by Republicans and passed with the support of Democrats during a Democratic administration, clearly demonstrates the collusion of the two political parties.”
The bailout of AIG (American International Group) was $85 billion in 2008. “…the benefits of the bailout went to the AIG banks while the taxpayers suffered the costs.”
Blackmail by the Legalists
CONSPIRACY AND LACK OF INTEGRITY
Said William Black: “Under Secretary (of the Treasury, Timothy) Geithner and Under Secretary (Henry) Paulson before him…took $5 billion…in tax-payer money and sent it to a huge Swiss Bank called UBS (through AIG)…(UBS) was defrauding the taxpayers of America…(they) pay a $780 million dollar fine…but…we gave them $5 billion dollars. So, the taxpayers of America paid the fine of a Swiss bank. And why are we bailing out somebody who is defrauding us?”
(As of April, 2011 that “total cost”of the 2008 fiasco was about $130,000 (or more) per human American citizen: But, in reality, it could be said to be $700,000 per family when one included all government, private, corporate (excluding future obligatory) debt . All our debt would consume all national income. We were broke.)
(On February 3, 2016, we had about 19-trillion-dollars in debt, and an adjusted figure of about $58,000 each person in the States. On September 3, 2017, our debt was rapidly closing in on 20-trillion-dollars. According to the very latest figures, which seemed to constantlychange every minute, the figure per person was about $91,000 and $160,000 per household. )
Hank Paulson, the George W. Bush Treasury Secretary, oversaw the bailout program and was a former head of Goldman Sachs, another derivative–riddenusurper. Black and others “acknowledged that the destruction of the U.S. financial system came about due to a lack of integrity on the part of several high-governments (professionals) and banking officials as well as massive conflicts of interest and a loss of morality,” said Marrs, “But this is simply the view of those unwilling to address the true issue–conspiracy.”
Michel Chossudousky, a professor of economics on globalization noted that “…the entire fiscal structure is shattered and turned upside down…largely serves the interest of Wall Street, the defense contractors and the oil conglomerates.” Chossudousky said that the Bush-Obama bank bailouts would lead America into a “spiraling public debt crisis.”
Serious market strife began when mortgage-purchasing companies Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae decided they could make more money by buying subprime mortgages.
This movement was further exacerbated by Bush’s policy of conforming to the United Nations’ Millennium Development goals revealed in 2000. What appeared at first as laudable goals (eradication of extreme poverty, etc.) became a landslide into power-hungry Socialism. Fannie Mae lobbied for lowering qualifications, while its stockholders pressured for greaterprofits; Globalists oversaw the festeringmachinations.
Darryl Robert Schoon said in How to Survive the Crisis and Prosper in the Process that he believed the crisis is essentially a “shell game”–a “lucrative fraud” wherein “modern banking were essentially a Ponzi scheme.”
Marrs’ book quickly branched out into multiple topics wherein the American government has joined the globalist movement to control the masses and give the reins to the super-wealthy. Americans have been taken over, bamboozled, by many schemes that have directed our lives, caging us into slavery as human “zombies”: The Walking Dead.
Marrs quoted Harvey Wasserman: “The biggest problem in our government is corporate power, and with that, the huge amount of resources and political power taken by the military. Until we deal with these issues, we will go nowhere in this country on health care, the environment, social justice or anything else of importance…it is now more important to have someone who is not a Republican or a Democrat and who is committed into the welfare of the public rather than that of the corporations.”
NOT MUCH OF A CHOICE
“Consider the presidential election of 2004,” said Marrs, “voters had the option of the Republican candidate George W. Bush, or Bush’s cousin, Democratic candidate John Kerry, the scion of a rich family and a member of the secret society Skull and Bones. Most informed and thoughtful people did not consider this much of a choice.”
Strengthening the power of the central government did not solve many of the country’s central public issues. There was still the matters of public health care, the U.S. Postal Service, Social Security, Fannie and Freddie Mac and Mae. There was the matter of one trillion dollars of “our hard earned money that is confiscated each year and transferred to ‘the poor,’” said Marrs, “it hasn’t worked…the problem lies in the people who control the government—the New World Order global fascists who now have a choke-hold on the government…”
I don’t know how well received will be the fact that Americans have entered into a new and evermore macabreform ofslaveryofhumankind? Would Marrs’ book make a difference: would people read and digest it?
Then, once digested mentally and philosophically, would people,and can people, do anything about it?
“Everyone knows there is a price to pay for ignoring the lessons of our post. Thomas Jefferson forewarned our nation at its very beginning regarding the consequences of apathy and insufficient vigilance. He left us this poignant, poetic reminder: ‘If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never will be.’” (Patrick Nolan, page 282, CIA Rogues)
(CIA Rogues and the Killing of the Kennedys, Patrick Nolan, Skyhorse Publishing, 307 West 36th Street, 11th Floor, New York, N.Y. 10018, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.skyhorsepublishing.com, 2013, 366 pages, $24.95.)
“The goal of this book is to show, through forensic science and other resources, the identity of the primary individuals ultimately responsible for these horrific assassinations,” says author Patrick Nolan, speaking about the killings of John and Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., Lee Harvey Oswald, and other victims. “A thorough examination and analysis of those who had ample, means, and opportunity concludes that only one small group stands alone: the CIA’s Richard Helms and James Angleton and their rogue band of conspirators and mob allies.” (p. 6)
Patrick Nolan, Investigative Reporter
SPYMASTER WITH NO LIMITS
Nolan first explores the nature and actions of Richard Helms, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director from 1966 to 1977, and the several “programs” that his organization escorted, over a period of time, in “behavior control”: Executive Action, psycho-pharmacological research, hypnosis, rohypnol, LSD, Manchurian Candidate studies, domestic spying, CIA Mafia assassination plots, CIA-backed foreign coups and attempts, cover stories, programmed patsies, and neutralized witnesses.
“Under Helms’s guidance, behavioral medicine scientists from across the US were recruited to investigate a curious mix of concepts: creating amnesia, understanding bio-electrics, and attempting to harness parapsychology,” says Nolan. “Soon, this newly contracted legion of psychiatrists began to test mind-altering drugs in conjunction with hypnosis.”
The CIA’s clandestine programs actually started with its forerunner organization, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and later Allen Dulles, a Word War I spymaster and CIA director (1953-1961). The CIA was formed officially in 1947 with the passage of the National Security Act. Helms and James Angleton (another master-spy from World War II and the OSS) “would form a twenty-five-year partnership in covert operations.” Under the leadership of Allen Dulles, Helms began to formulate Operation MKULTRA (“Ultra” was a wave to the World War II operation that broke Nazi codes, and MK probably stood for “mind control”).
Similar names were projects Bluebird, Antichoke, and involved drugs as Liquid E or X, lysergic acid disthylamide (LSD), with culprits such as Sidney Gottlieb, John Gittinger, James Angleton, Dr. Harold Wolff, Dr. Frank Olson, William Harvey, as well as the use of hypnotism in Manchurian Candidate projects.
“…the research proved to be framed for a murder while actually being innocent,” says Nolan. “The assassination would be carried out by hitmen hidden on the sidelines while the patsy would appear to have committed the crime thus protecting the identity of the actual assassins. Their technique of producing such a patsy involved the use of drugs and hypnotism, hence the term ‘hydro programmed fall guy.’”
These techniques were used in a “Helms era between 1953 and 1973” in nearly a dozen CIA-backed foreign coups or coup attempts. Helms was “able to draw on a variety of specialists from a wide array of nations.” Compartmentalization (strictly compartmented) enabled the CIA to deceive presidents, oversight committees, and the media.” “Cover stories” helped to control certain activities.
The use of CIA “cover stories” ranged from planted statements in the trail of Clay Shaw about Shaw (and Helms’s attempts to sabotage Garrison’s case) to the allegation that Oswald was not a CIA agent. The finding of the Senate Intelligence Committee, in the words of Senator Richard Schweiker of Pennsylvania, was that “Oswald had intelligence connections…the fingerprint of intelligence.”
Similarly, Helms stated that the CIA did not assist in any assassinations, and he ironically cited Senator Church’s investigation. However, Church’s remarks were based on the fact that CIA was not cooperating but were hiding these facts. It came out that the CIA worked with others to do assassinations (such as through the Mob and possibly French assassins or others).
The Manchurian Candidate
Nolan examines the personality of Richard Helms and discovers that Helms was a sociopath: He was “truth-challenged,” perhaps a pathological liar; he would perform normally but without any sense of empathy or conscience, have no stress or disorientation, appear cordial and unusually intelligence, but tend to be manipulative and show shallowness of emotions.
Richard Helms in Secretive Meeting
“An intelligent sociopath can be most destructive, and Helms was at the top of his class,” says Nolan. “They are focused individuals who aim to achieve their goals. At the same time, they are opportunists who ignore the rules, forging ahead with no inner controls…
“Helms created just such a rule in MKULTRA and spent his entire career trying to perfect it through testing drugs on unwitting subjects, carrying out hypnotic-programming experiments, and plotting coups, assassinations, and cover-ups while manipulating others.” (p. 49)
They Rule from the Shadows in the Dark
Helms held a mask of normality that people “are loathe” to look beyond, they hide integrity of the “role” itself, says Nolan, and that such people are “legally sane, but they have a serious mental disorder. They have no conscience.”
James Jesus Angleton began his intelligence career in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner of the CIA, named chief of the Rome office, reading messages decoded from ULTRA (the famous German code that the allies had cracked early on in the war). Richard Helms described Angleton as “a strange, strange man,” who could gain information through stealth, enabling him to climb to the “top ranks” of the CIA. All three men, Allen Dulles, Richard Helms, and James Angleton, were “strong believers” in covert operations (p. 56).
“The breakthrough came with the achievement of the capability of ordinary a subject___under the influence of drugs and posthypnotic suggestions___to perform an action and recall it later,” says Nolan. “For example, a subject could be controlled to the point where he would pull out a weapon and fire without remembering later what had happened.” (“Induce hypnosis rapidly on unwitting subjects: create durable amnesia: implant hypnotic suggestions that were ‘operationally useful,’” page 59)
Angleton was convinced that the CIA covert operations could save democracy about the globe. They often were in stark contrast to the philosophy and actions of the Kennedy brothers. To safeguard the CIA covert operation, Angleton went about “guiding the search for unwitting fall guys, overseeing their conditioning, and devising their missions.” (p. 61) When asked by a Congressional committee investigator to describe the nature of counter-intelligence, Angleton said: “To construct a ‘Wilderness of Mirrors’ in which the opponent would be forever lost and confused.” (Michael Holtzman, James Jesus Angleton, the CIA+ the Craft of Counterintelligence [Amherst: University of Massachusetts Press, 2008, page 302])
Nolan highlights the murder of Mary Meyer, mistress of John Kennedy, and critic of the Warren Commission Report. In the words of government assassin Joe Simon and another former lover of Mary Meyer, Kenneth Noland, “Angleton had had Mary’s phone bugged. This was typical of Angleton’s Style…both she and Kennedy had serious reservations regarding the activities of the CIA.”
Operation CHAOS was a CIA program to determine “if foreign governments were behind the anti-war protests and the civil rights movement,” aided by James Angleton, and further operations under the Special Operations Group (SOG), the unit carried out this domestic spying operation by monitoring peace activities, black leaders, and “monitoring and harassing peace activities, black leaders, and “monitoring and harassing” numerous newspapers (such as the liberal catholic publication Ramparts, that espoused anti-Vietnam articles).
It was suspected that the Watergate break-in in June, 1972 was carried out by a team of CIA operatives that was in fact an Operation Chaos mission. Nolan speculates that Angleton was behind the Watergate break-in and the goal was “to find out if the Democrats had obtained any information concerning who killed the Kennedys and it the leads were pointing in Angleton’s direction.” (p. 66)
Nolan surveys the CIA’s part in foreign assassination in Iran, Guatemala, Indonesia, Congo, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Iraq, and Vietnam.
A clandestine CIA operations force in Saigon, led by Lucien Conein, had been working behind the scenes without Kennedy’s full knowledge, leading to the November 1, 1963 coup. The murders of general Duong Van Minh and Ngo Dinh Nhu shocked President Kenney. Three weeks later, Kennedy was also assassinated.
On January 28, 1964, General Minh was replaced by General Khanh, and the war worsened for the United States.
In 1971, when Richard Nixon was president, Helms’s protégé E. Howard Hunt, joined Nixon’s administration as a consultant, specializing in the “Dirty Tricks” department. Hunt asked Lucien Conein to devise a “fake telegraph” that would make President Kennedy appear to have ordered Diem’s murder. LIFE Magazine reporter William Lambert questioned the authenticity of Conein’s play. Howard Hunt was finally arrested for his part in the break-in at the Democratic National Committee Headquarters in 1972. Hunt had joined the CIA in 1949 at the age of thirty-one. His talent at the CIA was writing disinformation, and he clearly found his “niche” with colleagues like Angleton and Helms.
E. Howard Hunt – Intelligence Spy
OPERATIONS AT HOME
Alternate theories as to who was behind the John Kennedy assassination ranged from Soviet KGB (State Security Committee), Cuba’s Castro, anti-Castro Cubans, the Mafia, and the Central Intelligence Agency. It was suggested that Lee Harvey Oswald was a trained recruit and may have been used for the assassination as retaliation against Kennedy’s peace overtures to Soviet and Cuban Communists and the president’s firing of three top-level CIA officials. But the flaw in this thinking would have been the supposed “great logistical legerdemain” to set up Oswald and the “silencing” of the actual assassins (James H. Fetzer, PhD, Murder in Dealey Plaza [OpenCourt Publishing, 2000, p. 298]).
Nolan quickly points out that the CIA had been using “logistical legerdemain” in its MKULTRA programs for more than a decade, utilizing “in-depth knowledge, skill and the requisite resources.” Oswald had been set up to be “an innocent patsy” appearing to have been an assassin. The real assassins were “hired guns, well-hidden sharp-shooters—CIA-Mafia-connected hired guns that were the hired guns.”
“We know that sources of witnesses died early deaths,” says Nolan, “indeed, the actual assassins were no doubt eliminated soon after the assassination in order to ensure their silence forever. The hit men who killed them would not have known who they were or why they were being bumped off…”
At 12:30 pm on November 22, 1963 shots rang out hitting Kennedy in the back and in the head. Fifty-two percent of the witnesses would later testify that the shots came from the grassy knoll in Dealey Plaza. Within the hour Dallas policeman J .D. Tippit was shot next to his patrol car in Oswald’s neighborhood. On November 24, 1963, Lee Oswald was shot (and swiftly died) by local mobster and strip club owner, Jack Ruby (who eventually died of cancer while in jail).
The purpose of the hypnotic-programming of Oswald “was not to create an assassin, but to create a fall guy by planting highly incriminating information about innocent person,” says Nolan, “while expert marksmen carried out the actual shooting.”
Oswald became adept at the Russian language. Fellow Marines nicknamed him “Oswaldskovich.” In actuality, Oswald had been sent to a premier military language school, the Defense Languages Institute (DLI) in Monterey, California to study Russian through September of 1957 “…preparing select troops from all branches of the military for work at the National Security Agency,” says Nolan.
Oswald’s next job was at the CIA’s super-secret spy plane U-2 training facility. Oswald was listed as a radar operator—a duty assignment—a cover for his top secret language-related job. During his stay in Atsugi, Lee gave disinformation to a young Japanese woman and KGB spy. His 1958 gonorrhea was considered “in the line of duty.” Oswald’s roommate at El Torro Air Station, James Botelho, said: “Oswald was not a Communist or a Marxist…Oswald was on an assignment in Russia for American intelligence.”
Under a CIA secret “defector” program, Oswald planned to enroll in an also CIA-backed Albert Schweitzer college in Chur Walden, Switzerland. Oswald arrived in Helsinki on October 11, 1959, probably by “contract pilots flying private aircraft.” On a six-day visa, he arrived in Moscow on October 16, 1957.
As a “201 file” CIA employer, Oswald received a study flow of hidden funds.
OSWALD AS NEWS
Picking up on Oswald’s “defection” scenario, reporters Aline Mosby of UPI and Priscilla Johnson of the North American Newspaper Alliance—both picked up on the Oswald Communist “spin”—with Johnson “working at the time on contract for the CIA.”
Oswald’s “program” or “legend” in Russia included marriage to a Russian woman (Marina Prusakova), creation of a phony ‘diary,” and an “easy” exit to Hoboken, Jersey on June 13, 1962.
Oswald continued to follow his “mission” (“program,” “legend”) to monitor, infiltrate, and penetrate individuals or groups that posed a threat to the national interest. The CIA took Oswald out of customary ‘posting”—but actually casting him as an enemy of the U.S. Various “handlers” were used to help ‘paint’ Oswald as a treacherous person.
“In Lee’s case, it appears that the did not know until the end of his short life that his assignments,” says Nolan, “were also designed to make him appear to be working for the enemy, not just posing as one.”
George de Mohrenschildt was one handler. De Mohrenschildt was constantly in contact with CIA front organizations; a spy in Mexico during World War II; in Latin America in U.S oil companies after the war; on the fringes in Guatemala at the same time the CIA planned the Bay of Pigs invasion.
“He reportedly received two thousand dollars in a Haitian bank account shortly after the Kennedy assassination,” says Nolan.
Variations in de Mohrenschildt’s “friends” consisted of Norman Fredrickson (director of Radio Free Europe), Max Clark (former head of security at Convair Aircraft Corporation), Michael Paine at Bell Helicopter (husband of Ruth Paine, Oswald’s landlady at one point), and Ruth Paine (whose father was William Avery Hyde who had worked at AID, a CIA-backed agency). Consequently, thanks to de Mohrenschildt, Oswald worked at Jaggar-Chiles-Stovall for six months doing photographic work connected to U-2 spy plane photos.
Nolan paces us through Oswald’s “traits” and “deeds,” such as the nick-name A.J. Hidell (used in intelligence circles), purchase of a World War II Mannlicher-Carcano, fake backyard photos, created story about shooting of retired Army Major General Edwin A. Walker, Lee’s pamphleteering, connections with David Ferrie, Guy Banister, Clay Shaw, his job at the Reily Coffee Company (“Obviously, the Reily firm was more than a coffee shop as evidenced by its alumni’s later assignments in the aerospace defense industry.”), radio and TV appearances, trip to Clinton, Louisiana, alleged trip to Mexico, and Oswald’s eventual employment at the Texas Book Depository building.
The reader should pay especially close attention to the intricate sequence of events that Nolan lays out leading up to assassins’ firing shots at President Kennedy on November 22, 1963, as well as the twisting misidentifications of police officer Jefferson Davis Tippit’s murder, the mysterious deaths following Kennedy’s assassination, such as that of George de Mohrenschildt on March 29, 1977, Jack Ruby, Lee Oswald and others.
“Lee was forceful in his media appearance during several scheduled and impromptu press conference,” says Nolan. “At one point, Oswald said: ‘I didn’t shoot anybody, no sir.’ At another time, he said that someone should ‘come forward to give me legal assistance.’ On November 22, a bewildered Oswald responded to a reporter’s revelation that he had been charged with the assassination: ‘Then I’m the patsy.’” (Plausible Denial: Was the CIA involved in the Assassination of JFK? [New York: Thunder’s Mouth Press, 1991], p. 15.) (p. 165.)
SIRHAN AND ROBERT KENNEDY
Nolan believes that the same CIA “hypnotic-programming” (through agents Dr. William Bryan and Manly Palmer Hall and others) victimized Sirhan Bishara Sirhan as a “patsy” in the assassination of presidential candidate Senator Robert F. Kennedy on the evening of June 5, 1968.
Not only did the forensic evidence not match Sirhan’s alleged quilt, but Dr. Eduard Simon-Kallas said that an analysis of Sirhan at San Quentin Prison indicated that “Sirhan was mentally normal, but that he had been hypno-programmed by someone.” (p. 274)
Nolan treks through the forensic evidence in the RFK assassination; like the JFK assassination, his brother’s murder was meticulously planned and executed.
Dr. Eduard Simson-Kallas said “…that Sirhan in fact does not have any recollection of the assassination nor of writing the notebooks,” says Nolan, “he concluded that Sirhan was ‘prepared by someone. He was hypnotized by someone.’”
Two gunmen in suits who stood directly behind Robert Kennedy, and his left side, fired guns inches away before escaping in the chaos. Sirhan’s gun could not be “positively identified” as the murder weapon because of significant discrepancies. Lead in the bore of Sirhan’s gun indicated only blanks had been fired. Sirhan’s gun was feet away from Kennedy, yet assassins fired within one-inch. Forensic analysis of recovered residue indicated that more than one gun was fired (p. 253).
Shots Came From Behind and Directly Against His Head
Again, as in the case of Lee Oswald, Sirhan had been “associated” with mysterious, possible CIA, contacts: security officer Thane Eugene Cesar, a mysterious lady often near Sirhan over a matter of weeks, as well as a “young women in the polka dot dress seen in the (hotel) pantry” who was assisted by a male companion on the night of the shootings; not to mention the psycho programmers.
Thane Eugene Cesar – Suspected Assassin
Readers will pensively study Nolan’s fascinating literary landscape of facts into the frightening world of power and murder.
Patrick Nolan is a forensic historian who has relentlessly worked to uncover truths surrounding the JFK, MLK, and the RFK assassinations of the 1960s. He has been a journalist, a television news producer, and a professor at Hofstra University and St. John’s University.
“Mr. Nolan’s early background in news-writing and college teaching, and his perseverance and devotion to this subject, have given him the tools to make sound judgments in these controversial cases,” said Dr. Henry C. Lee, former director of the Connecticut State Police Forensic Science Laboratory and currently Distinguished Professor of Forensic Science at the University of New Haven.
Lee said forensic science professionals, and Nolan, seek the truth, but in the final analysis, the reader must come to a conclusion “based on the best evidence.”
“In dissecting the associations of the sixties, beneath the surface, they involve similar motives, means, and opportunities,” says Nolan on page 282. “The motive of the rogue intelligence operatives was to control America’s destiny in their own twisted way.”
Martin Hay appeared far from a friend of Nolan, and criticized Nolan for lack of proof and hard evidence that Nolan promised in his book, nevertheless Hay agreed the idea of the Manchurian Candidate was a fascinating and real one:
“When he was interviewed by author Dick Russell, Gottlieb denied that creating brainwashed or hypnotized assassins had been an aim of MKULTRA and suggested that such a thing wasn’t actually possible (On The Trail of the JFK Assassins, p. 242). But there’s every reason to believe it is. In 2011, British mentalist/hypnotist Derren Brown produced a series of TV shows called The Experiments, the first of which was titled The Assassin. In it, Brown took a volunteer through a series of hypnosis sessions which the volunteer believed were intended to make him a superior marksman. In reality, Brown was programming him to commit an assassination against his will of which he would have no memory. The show culminated with the unwitting gunman firing blanks at British comedian and TV personality, Stephen Fry, in front of a packed and unsuspecting auditorium. After watching The Assassin, the viewer is compelled to conclude that a mind-controlled assassin is a shockingly real possibility.”
Typical comments about the book and other research suggest many coincidental connections and further intriguing facts of mystery:
“Nolan suggests Oswald’s observed agitation at the Dallas breakfast diner several days prior to the JFK assassination was indicative of MKULTRA’s psycho-programming, but Oswald at that point knew of the scheduled assassination but was unable to contact his probable White House connection, Fletcher Prouty, as he was outside the country at that time!
A MKULTRA Document
“The other major criticism is that the author does no current research — had he examined the obituaries for Valerie Schulte’s family (she being the so-called ‘mystery witness’ who didn’t fit the description by a long shot!), Nolan would have discovered that Schulte’s aunt and uncle were both employed at the very same classified section at Lockheed as Thane Cesar, the part-time security guard at the RFK assassination.
“Also, Nolan might have discovered that Schulte’s father worked at Technicolor Corporation on a classified contract with Lockheed, and that the security chief at Lockheed was the former personal US Secret Service bodyguard of Vice President Richard Nixon, who left that position when Nixon lost the presidential campaign, and would return to Nixon’s 1968 presidential campaign after the assassination of Senator Bobby Kennedy.”

The tablets contain The Epic of Enuma Elish (The Story of Creation) and The Epic of Gilgamesh, as explained through the works of Sitchen’s deciphers, a civilization some 450,000 years ago from a far distant world called Nibiru.

The book contains extremely handsome and elaborate photographs, professionally exquisite graphic charts, illustrations that are well worth the cost: outlining the arrival and rise of an alleged civilization called the Anunnaki; Gilgamesh, the king of Urek; Ekidu, a cloned humanoid of the Anunnaki; Lord Enki, the chief genetic engineer; and Gilgamesh’s mother as an Anunnaki Divine Princess; Gilgamesh’s father was human.
The 6th tablet tells about Princess Ishtar who lusts after Gilgamesh but is rejected by him. Furious, Ishtar travels from an orbiting mothership to Urek, stealing the “Bull of Heaven” from Leader Anu, and uses the laser-device to blast the streets of Uruk killing hundreds of people. Gilgamesh and Enkidu destroy “The Bull” as Ishtar retreats.
Cylinder seal VA/243 is about 4,500 years old. The story on the cylinder tells of Anunnaki leaders: the Commander Enlil and Genetic Engineer Enki are shown experimenting with animals, says Klarfeld.
The same diagrams show the alleged solar system with 10 planets; Nibiru is supposedly the 10th planet.
Klarfeld, as also so many other people, believes that a double entendre’ existed in the beliefs and statements of scientist Carl Sagan; Sagan always intended his words provoke additional thoughts on controversial topics, says Klarfeld. In Sagan’s 1985 book Contact, his photograph held behind him a “sentient belief” in Sumerian stories of the Anunnaki. Sagan once named a spaceship as Gilgamesh. It was Sagan that said: ‘Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” Klarfeld adds: “I suspect that Dr. Sagan was a believer who wanted to signal his beliefs, without overtly confronting the scientific community.”
THE ENUMA ELISH EPIC
Klarfeld summarizes that The Enuma Elish Epic predated the Hebrew Book of Genesis, and is the bases for the Genesis creation account. It is the originalcreation story that was transmitted orally from the Anunnaki. The Epic came to rest eventually in the form of seven cuneiform tablets.
(Why the Anunnaki didn’t use their advanced knowledge and technology to transmit history, as such, in a superior and very solidified means other than ‘oral’ and primitive ‘tablets’ is a curiously tantalizing question.)
THE SEVEN DAYS OF CREATION
Genesis spoke of seven days of creation. There were “seven” tablets relaying the Sumerian tale, said Sitchin. In Genesis, God saw on the 7th day that creation is good, and then He rested; in the Sumerian accounts, the ‘god’ created in the length of ‘six tablets,’ but on the last and 7th tablet, ‘god’ heralded and examined his creation. In the Sumerian seven tablets, creation was portrayed. In Genesis, God created and praised His creation in ‘seven’ days.
Zecharia Sitchin, Supporter of Planet Nibiru and of the Anunnaki
NIBIRU AND PLANETS AS ‘GODS’
The Enuma Elish tale, according to the late Zacharia Sitchin, named the planets of the solar system in the form of ‘gods’: Sun, Moon, nine planets, and Nibiru as the 10th planet. Starting from the Sun, they are Apsu (which is the Sun), Mummu, Lahamu, Tiamat (the Earth), Kishar, Arislar, Anu, Ea (Neptune). Apparently, Pluto is disowned and disenfranchised by Anunnaki and present-day scientists. Translating the personified conversations in the tale, the solar system was very mobile, causing all kinds of havoc and destruction until the sun stabilized their movements.
Tower of Babel built to Symbolize Seven Stellar gods
Earth’s moon is called Kingu, and the moon of Nibiru is called “Northwind.” When Nibiru came close to Earth in its 3,600-year orbit around the sun, ‘Northwind’ careened into the Earth about 225-million-years ago, fragmenting Pangea into continents, causing new orbits for Tiamat (Earth) and Nibiru. The asteroid belt was referred to as the HammeredBracelet.
LIFE ON A COLD PLANET
If Sitchin was correct, the inhabitants of Nibiru evolved on a planet that had no ‘goldilocks’ zone from a central sun precisely at the adequate distance for life as we know it. That meant that Nibiruites must have had a very peculiar evolution.
Has there ever been precedence in the UFO lore of beings evolving on a “cold planet”? Yes, there have been a few, one in particular: the stories of the late Richard Sharpe Shaver and the late Raymond Arthur Palmer.
Richard Sharpe Shaver and publisher Ray A. Palmer
THE TRADITIONS OF SHAVER AND PALMER
Through a period of about 1943 to 1977 the publisher of Amazing Stories Magazine, Ray A. Palmer (affectionately referred to as RAP), promulgated accounts of Richard Shaver’s journey into a Hidden World. Shaver, somewhat of a bohemian character who grew up with science-fiction and a dabbling of science, had also, for the most part, been an adventurer from occupation to occupation, talent to talent, territory to territory. Shaver also had an enlarged imagination as he discovered one day while working as a welder in a Detroit auto factory: voices were coming from his welding equipment; the voices were describing obscene depictions, and generally detailing outlandish events of anotherreality.
Right away, many would be quick to say that Shaver was probably schizophrenic or somehow mentally ill, but Palmer was swift to point out to Shaver’s detractors that much more was happening to Shaver. Palmer based that opinion on scientific verification of Shaver’s claims. There also existed modern theories on exactly what the brain perceives amidst the latest traditions of quantumphysics.
(One is reminded of the movie scene in A Beautiful Mind where schizophrenic John Nash, played by Richard Crowe, was observing the reflections of glass and crystal and seeing great mathematical possibilities: to quote the Halexandria Foundation: “On the one hand, there is the supposition that all of reality is an illusion. As discussed in Mass, the universe is nothing more than a figment of our prolific imaginations, a phantasm. That may be, but on a more, still-in-the-midst-of-this-life’s-drama level, we can ask about the degree to which we may be imagining — and/or creating — our own reality.” [Creating Your Perfect Reality])
In the Movie, ABeautiful Mind, John Nash (Actor Richard Crowe) Contemplates Unknown Mathematical Possibilities in Crystal Glass and a Tie.
David Darling, an astronomer, and graduate of Sheffield and Manchester Universities in England, spoke of ancient and current practitioners to ‘brain tapping,’ as one example, that by-passes the brain as a modulator to confronting cosmic consciousness. Darling also spoke of Clive Wearing’s Korsakoff Disease (Korsakoff had to reconstruct reality and memory every few seconds): “Cases such as these speak of more than just the fragile and constructed nature of self. They raise serious questions about the nature of time,” said Darling, “and the delicate connection between psychological time and physical reality. Could it be that time, likewise, is nothing more than a product of the way we think.” (Soul Search, Villard Books, Random House, New York, 1995, p. 117.)
Darling and other scientists pointed to altered states of consciousness where perception exceeded normal restraints. The sanctimonious judgments of such people, others would say, were probably premature if not also suspect and neurotic.
BACK INTO SPACE
Palmer received a rather sketchy manuscript at his office at Amazing StoriesMagazine telling of a vast underground civilization of demented creatures left on earth thousands of years ago by an Elder Race; this race possesses super-technology from their forefathers, who escaped earthly contamination by heading back into space.
Artist’s rendering of the proposed Mars Transfer Vehicle that would use NTR – Nuclear Thermic Rocket -Propulsion
The beings that were left behind on earth are a composite of ‘The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly,’ to use a movie metaphor: abandero or dero, and the not-so-bad, sometimes good, tero. Dero kept themselves “Dosed-up,” so-to-speak, through their machines which allowed them to continue long but torturous lives of radiation poisoning from the sun.
The Tero were a little more fortunate, knew the danger of the destructive “de” from the Sun, as well as the mechanics of surviving in such a surrealistic world. Some Tero actually waged war against the Dero who had the advantage of combat with their Ben-ray, Stim-ray, Telesolidography, and Telepathic-Augmentor.
And then, there are the “surface dwellers”: we humans, who have to deal with apparitions, ghosts, poltergeists, surface-type diseases and other mysterious calamities.
Out of such a rich but chaotic history grew the legends of other legends; tales of other tales; Atlantis, Lemuria, Mu, The Oahspe Bible, Hades (Hell), and hundreds of other sagas.
The Hidden Underworld
Palmer reconstructed Shaver’s story-line for Amazing Stories and presented the manuscripts in a serious vain and found himself avalanched by responses from thousands of readers with a chorus of “Real! This is really happening!” Most were certifiably sane. Carl Sagan said and (quoted by Elz Cuya) “….renamed the scientific method, ‘the baloney detection kit.’ He admitted that science at times had been wrong.”
If Shaver was insane, he also appeared correct, exampled by one such claim that the Elder Race lived on “dark, cold worlds,” away from deadly effects of space and sun radiation (exd) which carries “de, der, dir or d” ash, as compared to good matter – integrative energy – te, ter or t.
Like Zacharia Sitchin (1976), Emanuel Velikovsky (1950), Harold Jeffreys (1924), Shaver’s stories also told of cosmic catastrophe: Planets were dislodged, orbits realigned, and crash events occurred. The Elder Race feared none of this on their ‘dark planet’ of the Nortonean Race.
THE MEANING OF EVIL
Princess Vanic and other “Elder Gods,” as recorded in Shaver’s IRememberLemuria (1948), lived on the ‘sunless Nor’: they were “Nortons” who could thrive in ‘dark space’; they were ‘Titans,’ ‘Atlans,’ and ‘Nor-tons.’ They did avoid the “black death” from the “masses of (the) poisonous particles” from any sun or star (also called ‘dis’ or ‘de’). Such poison eventually causes ‘radioactivedisease’ known as ‘‘age.’’
Nortons were protected by a “carbon shell” canopy. Unfortunately, our sun, Sol, captured Nor and over many eons, the “shell” burned away about 30,000 years ago, allowing the destructive “de, der, dir or d” to enter the surface and cause havoc, disease, and aging. A residual “exd,” or ash, pushed back causing ‘gravity’ (A lot of Shaver’s ‘formulas’, said Palmer, have been found to be eventually true).
Not only was the capture of the “cold planet” a major epiphany-event but there were cataclysmic events and collisions of celestial bodies through the solar system.
This resulted in various legends.
As mentioned, some legends appeared to be copies or remnant stories of other legends: issue tales of Atlantis, Lemuria, Mu, and Shaver’s strange “Mantong” language and alphabet where each letter denoted meaning: one word could seemingly have been a complete sentence or more.
When the “gods” left earth, they also abandoned superior machinery and diseased monsters that took “surface dwellers” into their Realm as “shanghaied slaves.”
Shaver died in November 1975 (same month I was confronted with the Kafkaesque world of the multi-billion-dollar Divorce Industry, Scam, and Racket). Ray Palmer died in August 1977, just two years after his dear friend Richard Shaver.
Donald Wesley Patten referred to such a mysterious celestial body moving tremulously through our solar system as “the Visitor” (The Biblical Flood and the IceEpoch, Pacific Meridan Publishing Company, 1966, p. 139). As a professional Geographer, M.A., Patten came to believe that a number of cosmic and planetary events disturbed the evolution of earth and its inhabitants. Rather than a “carbon shell,” Patten believed Earth had a “water canopy” (evidenced by a residual Van Allen Belt around the planet). The “canopy” was destroyed by a combination of events in the solar system. This “canopy” protected the earth from radiation and space debris (referred to in the Book of Genesis in the Scriptures as “the waters above”), allowing a rather deterioration-free world. The intimate details were in Patten’s book and related works of Immanuel Velikovsky and Jim Wentworth’s Giantsin the Earth; but all theories and legends held questionable “gaps” and begged multiple queries as yet unanswered or challenged.
STORED INFORMATION DEVICES
Klarfeld answers numerous questions; I cannot say he will answer questions to everyone’s satisfaction. He examines Sumerian and ancient archeology through four categories: S.I.T – or – Stored Information Text (cuneiform tablets), S.I.Ts – or – Stored Information Tablets (cuneiform tablets), S.I.D – or – Stored Information Device (cylinder seals), S.I.Sc – or – Stored Information Sculpture (Ishtar statue, etc.), and S.I.S.t – or – Stored Information Structure (pyramids).
The pyramids certainly seemed mysterious enough to be classified as possibly an actual alien “structure”: 2.3 million bricks in the Giza pyramid with a satellite view of being only two inches off at the apex. This is a tolerance of 1/1,000,000 of an inch.
But the question seemed affordable to ask: why did the Sumerians, who consorted with the Anunnaki beings and leaders, not “demand,” or, at least, query their Creators about obtaining or inventing their super-technology? They could have insisted or campaigned as so that the Anunnaki put their laser, radio, and other advanced machinery at their disposal. Conversely, the Anunnaki could have circumnavigated cuneiform tablets and cylinder-seals and ‘had given’ the Eridue superior machines.
Why is there only history of the Anunnaki in the Mesopotamian civilization? Or, did the “Nephilim” do a very good job of keeping their existence of technology completely out of the hands of the Enkidu? Why allow ‘any’ technological transfer?
(Tantalizing questions are further posed in Part II of the curiosities of the Elder Gods and the reality of the planet Niberu.)
The Psychrophiles Are Coming!
CONNECTING THE DOTS OR NOT
Klarfeld offers the mysteries of Stonehenge as another bit of evidence of ancient super-civilizations. Klarfeld says the stones were erected on a prior 285-foot-diameter circle of 56 chalk holes. The Audrey Circle, say its defenders, is an early eclipse-computer with precise knowledge of celestial mechanics. Stonehenge’s earliest portion dates approximately 2950-2900 BCE, Middle Neolithic, and having enormous knowledge about the earth’s relation to celestial bodies, enabled as S.I.D and S.I.S.t devices.
The Uruk, Nipper, Kishilarsa, Ur, Eridu, and Anunnaki peoples left many clues: stones, says Klarfield, that can only have been chiseled and moved by an advanced technology. One stone weighs over 1,200 tons; the St. Louis Gateway Arch weighs 900 tons. Some megalith stones are found raised 36 feet above the ground and end to end.
The pyramid of Giza (and several other pyramids) still defied complete explanation by its critics of an S.I.S.t. Pyramid fascinations included: Its engineers knew of the proportions of “pi” and the Golden Mean, Pythagorean Triangles, thousands of years before Pythagoras lived. Passageways, said defenders, could not be produced with copper or bronze tools; the builders also knew the precise spherical shape and size of the Earth, Venus, Mars, and Mercury and star positions.
The Pyramids as a Grand Communication Tool
Sitchin’s legends told of the messenger Galzu, instructed by the Creator of All, telling the Anunnaki to save humanity and advance human civilization. In “The Lost Book of Enki,” Enki and Enlil debated using “WeaponsofTerror”: atomic-tipped missiles stored on earth and used in war: issue Sodom and Gomorrah, the “evil wind” (radiation fallout) which destroyed the Sumerian alien-hybrids. The Halexandria Foundation stated: “Unfortunately, Lot’s wife looked behind her, and was turned into a pillar of salt for her trouble. [6/22/06 – One reader, Paul Cilwa, had noted that ‘In Hebrew, the word used for ‘salt’ also means ‘vapor.’ Lot’s wife wasn’t turned to salt. She was vaporized. When Abraham got wind of the event, ‘he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.’ (Genesis 19:28).]”
The Vaporization of Lot’s Wife
The Foundation continued: “The aftermath was so terrifying that Lot and his daughters fled to a cave, where the natural assumption was that the human race was doomed (i.e. no men to beget children). The daughters then took the next step of lying with their father, conceived, and ultimately bore sons.
“Notice how all of the ingredients in the Biblical story account for the destruction of the cities by a nuclear blast.”
Possible clues also further substantiated the atomic war. Mark Hempsell of Bristol University, based on the cuneiform symbols in Planisphere tablets of a Sumerian astronomer, postulated a large asteroid passed over the area scorching 386,000 square miles and sending out debris and shock waves. The text spoke of: “a white stone bowl being vigorously swept along.”
The cities, also known as Bab edh Dhra and Numeira, showed signs of fire from above as well as a “burn layer” at Numeira. “To this day, unnatural levels of radioactivity are found in the water of springs around the southernmost edges of the Dead Sea. One study confirmed that this radioactivity was sufficiently high to ‘induce sterility and allied afflictions in any animals and humans that absorbed it over a number of years. Further evidence of an explosion is being revealed by the falling level of the Dead Sea, which has in recent years dropped from 1,280 feet to 1,340 feet below sea level.’”
The City of Bab Edh Dhra – was it destroyed by an Atomic Blast?
“The isolation of the fossil water body give it characteristic chemical and radioactive properties, including low values of radioactive tritium and radium and the presence of bivalent iron, which indicates a lack of oxygen. One study found that radioactive isotopes had been introduced into the surface layers and mixed throughout the water column before its stratification.”
“A strong correlation between radium activity and salinity was also evident in groundwater along the rift valley between the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea, as well as in groundwater from the Judea Group rocks in the Negev. The general rule is that in freshwater conditions, most of the radium remains in the aquifer rocks, while in saline conditions the radium escapes from the rocks and has high concentrations in groundwater. Other studies have established that groundwater with no oxygen also is typically enriched in radium.”
Based on evidence found at Harappa, could this not be the case at Sodom and Gomorrah as well?
“The levels of radiation registered so high on investigators’ gauges that the Indian government cordoned off the region. Scientists then apparently unearthed an ancient city where they found evidence of an atomic blast dating back thousands of years: from 8,000 to 12,000 years.”
Some artifacts are disputed, some disproven, some appeared to be hoaxes—-such as the Crystal Skulls. All in all, the accuracy of the Sumerian account boiled down to whether an inhabited planet came around our Sun from deep space.
Klarfeld says that legends title this mysterious Planet X as Marduk, The Winged Globe, Treta, Yuga, The Celestial Disk, and Nemesis.
Could molecular life as we know it have existed on “dark planets” so far from radiant heat or warmth?
Life on planets in our solar system exists because of ideal or quasi-ideal “goldilocks” positions from a heat source in the universe that “sets the stage.” Mars probes and discoveries on Europa, the fourth-largest moon of Jupiter (which has a possible 50-mile-ocean-breeding-ground) gave wonder about the tenacity of life. Internal heat from volcanism and other factors inspired us to new and fresh viewpoints.
COLD AS HADES
Rare and bizarrely exotic life existed and evolved under the strenuously cantankerous and perhaps perilous conditions. Science seemed to indicate that life “yearns” to exist, even in hostilely macabre environments. In Oymyakon in the northern hemisphere, birds in mid-flight froze because the temperatures are so cold. The Hot Spring of Sakha (“non-freezing water”) supported life in temperatures of -60-degree centigrade to -71.2-degree centigrade. Vostok, about 1,300 km from the South Pole has a low temperature of -128.6-degrees-farhenheit (and winds up to 60 mph), yet life was found. During Polar Night, in low oxygen at an 11,312-foot altitude, life abounded.
Permafrost Life- Coldest Living Organisms – Cryptoendoliths
.Scientists pointed to life in Chile’s cruelly dry Atacama Desert, the 10,000-foot-thick ice plateaus in Greenland, the 750-degree-fahrenheit hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor, and mitochondria in a microscopic “harsh world.”
Organisms Found in Deepest Part of Ocean
COLD SHOCK PROTEINS
Antarctica flourished with bacteria living because of ‘cold shock proteins,’ said Dr. William P. McGiven, and proteins carrying metabolic enzymes that allow ‘ice re-crystallization inhibition (RI) activity.’
McGiven found that proteolytic cleavage in a creature called hydrogenophilus or chemolithoautotrophy can change the physical structure of the ice around them through “stress chaperones or stress proteins.”
Psychrophilic organisms were found at -112-degrees-F; they were “psychrotolerant”: able to survive in either cold or warm temperatures. Archaea creatures were thermophiles that, contrarily, were ‘‘heat-loving,” demonstrating the wide-range of spectacular life.
Toxic cyanobacteria secreted “anti-freeze chemicals,” exopolymers, mucus that allowed insulation; yeast and nematode worms utilized trehalose sugar; and in the Antarctic Taylor Dry Valley, organisms flourished in calcium chloride in the Ross Ice Shelf.
Carol Cleland and Microbiologist Sheely Copley of NASA’S Astrobiology Institute spoke of a “shadow biosphere” wherein all kinds of “weird life” intersect and thrive on earth, some in symbiotic relationships, but all suspended in diversified and “staggeringly” cooperative and competitively strange and harsh life.
Tardigrades Survived Cold Outer Space
We must consider: what about life on distant worlds?
THE ROSWELL GREYS
One can only have speculated that in billions of years in crossing space to, briefly (several hundred years out of thousands), pass a sun in its orbit, as to what type of life could evolve on a “dark planet.” Obviously, life would be unique, to say the least, for it would not depend on the traditional “goldilocks” mechanisms we’re usually assumed.
Pharaoh Akhenaten may have had Extraterrestrial Heritage
Gravity would be quite different, due to the individual planetary terrain. There would not be the Sun’s “constant” harmful radiation; perhaps such a planet might itself be an “organism” enveloped in some ‘cloud’ or ‘shell’ causing surface evolutionary mechanisms. Such ‘shields’ may become threatened by eventual catastrophe causing the inhabitants to search out artificial survival morphing.
One could envision large, almost “pupil-less” eyes to allow as much light in as possible; thin, elongated features due to odd gravity strains, and inner organs much reported like the artist conceptions in the alleged, famed “humanoid grey creatures” of 1947, Roswell, New Mexico, UFO crash.

GOLD FOR HEALTH
According to Sitchenites, the Anunnaki created Enkidu-type hybrids to mine gold from the bowels of the earth because Anunnaki had a medical and ecological need for it. Sitchenites speculated: gold dust or salts have anti-inflammatory uses or the ability to reduce arthritic pain, rheumatoid arthritis, and tuberculosis. Gold, also, has a use in radioisotopes and electrical conductivity.
Obviously, as a basis for our legends, the Anunnaki may have had a “broken” ozone layer or damage to their “cloud-shield.” Gold, as various solid and dust forms, may have been used as an aid or protectant (we see our ‘modern chem-trails’ being sprayed by humans today).
BREAD OF LIFE
Researchers speculated about gold’s anti-cancer properties when induced as nanoparticles to fight “cellular deformations.” It may fix strings of DNA and regulate the hormonal functions of the human endocrine system.
Gold had electrical aspects as a “superconductor.” Metallurgy and chemistry were still progressing into the monoatomic reality of elements. Theorists talked of arranging the atoms into singular atoms causing very little deletion of energy input, as a superconductor, and enhancing the body brain-power and memory, even acting as a time-machine in some ‘monatomic optimum.’
“Sitchen’s scientifically liberating work is filled with poor scholarship, poor translations, and poor science.”
The Seal VA/243 was later described, by Roger Westcott, professor emeritus of Anthropology and Linguistics at Drew University, as merely ‘stars.’ Michael S. Heiser, M.A and Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible and Ancient Semitic languages at the University of Wisconsin lambasted Sitchin’s translations of the texts as grossly misleading and inadequate.
Astronomers of similar style and rank, said Ferrante, have failed to spot Nibiru in its approach into our domain. Such critics pointed out that Akkadian and Sumerian texts were, supposedly, actually talking about Jupiter as the god Marduk (Nibiru). They “frowned” on the idea of a planet “frozen solid” being capable of supporting life; that out of a 3,600-year-orbit, only 153-years would be in sunlight and supposedly life-supporting: if, if, if………
AMIDST A CONFLUENCE
Despite these threads of contention, facing a magnanimous universe, final answers were hidden in the midst of infinite questions; confluence guarded the darkest secrets of the great beyond. Only in the never-ending search, will we finally know if Sitchin, Patten, Velikovsky, Shaver, Palmer, John Keel, and others in this matrix of inquiry, will be found correct: sicitor ad astra(“Thus one goes to the stars”, Aeneid, Virgil).
Statue of Akhenaten – Akhenaten ascended to the throne as the 10th Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty in 1352 B.C. He is depicted in paintings and carvings with an elongated skull, which some ancient alien theorists see as a sign of extraterrestrial heritage.
“The storied tower of Birs Nimrud counts seven of these quadrangular platforms painted in seven colors, black, white, yellow, blue, scarlet, silver and gold, and in the same order sacred to the stellar gods, Adar (Saturn), Ishtar (Venus), Merodach (Jupiter), Nebo (Mercury), Nergal (Mars), Sin (the Moon), Shamash (the Sun).”
Universal phylogenetic tree of life based on 16S rRNA sequences, emphasizing the domains of Bacteria and Archaea. Orange branches indicate hyperthermophiles that grow at ≥90 °C; purple branches, groups that contain known (cultured) psychrotolerant strains; and blue branches, groups that contain known psychrophiles. Note that the (uncultured) marine Crenarchaeota are colored purple because degree of cold adaptation is not known.
Extremophilic microbes are a wild bunch. They can be found thriving in some of the most hostile environments imaginable – swimming in near-boiling water, eating rocks, lounging in sub-zero temperatures, and hanging out where radiation levels rival nuclear reactors.
The benthic zone includes the entire sea floor. About 200,000 species of plants and animals live here. They live on the continental shelf and continental slope. Hydrothermal vents discovered in 1977 are also teeming with life. These plants and animals do not need sunlight to exist.
Tardigrades are a class of microscopic animals with eight limbs and a strange, alien-like behavior. William Miller, a leading tardigrade researcher at Baker University, says these creatures are remarkably abundant. Hundreds of species “are found across the seven continents; everywhere from the highest mountain to the lowest sea,” he says. “Many species of tardigrades live in water, but on land, you find them almost everywhere there’s moss or lichen.” In 2007, scientists discovered that these microscopic critters can survive an extended stay in the cold, irradiated vacuum of outer space. A European team of researchers sent a group of living tardigrades to orbit the earth on the outside of a FOTON-M3 rocket for ten days. When the water bears returned to Earth, the scientists discovered that 68 percent lived through the ordeal.
Palmer was hit by a truck at age seven and suffered a broken back. At nine, a failed spinal graft left him a hunchback who never grew past four feet. He immersed himself in science fiction, moving quickly from fandom, to fan zine publication, to editor at Ziff-Davis. He published a wide array of magazines over the decades.
He also turns up in many of the key UFO connected conspiracy events of the mid 20th century such as the Maury Island Incident
Ray Palmer’s series of Amazing Stories on the Hidden World
Jellyfish species Diplulmaris Antarctica floats with the current just offshore of McMurdo Station, Ross Island, Antarctica. This species is generally found in Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula near the surface in continental shelf waters. It’s colorless umbrella can be up to 18 centimeters in diameter and its diet consists mainly of copepods, euphausiid larvae, medusae, ctenophores, fish larvae and molluscan pteropods.
The Shaver Mystery is part of the history of Amazing StoriesMagazine, but it is certainly not considered one of the magazine’s shining moments. Barry Malzberg touched on it briefly in his blog post. In a nutshell, the Shaver Mystery was the “UFO phenomenon” before the actual UFO phenomenon.

(Triangular UFOs: An Estimate of the Situation, David Marler, Richard Dolan Press, Box 92188 Rochester, New York 14692, www.keyholepublishing.com, 2013, 276 pages, $19.95.)
David Marler analytically laid out the contours of special types of UFOs that somewhat appeared as triangular aircraft or similar phenomena going back as far as 1882.
“These are craft of unknown origin. We appear to be confronted with something other than human technology, therefore the implications are profound,” said Marler. “The objects may be spatial, temporal, or dimensional in origin.”
Not knowing the real intentions of the operators of such craft, Marler suggested we stand ever-vigilant to the phenomena and continue to gather as many hard facts as we can.
Where we stand today in reference to triangular UFOs and the UFO subject as a whole is just a steppingstone in our examination of this phenomenon,” said Marler. “Questions remain as to the relationship, if any, of these triangular UFOs relative to the others of varying descriptions. Each person who reviews this material can maketheirown conclusions.”
CHARLES FORT AND DONALD KEYHOE
Charles Fort, the person who chronicled strange events at the turn of the century, and gave meaning to the term “Fortean,” recorded Charles Tilden Smith’s sighting of two triangular dark shapes on April 8, 1912 (Chrisbury, Wiltshire, England). “It is not a stretch of the imagination to assume,” said Marler, “that two large triangular-shaped shadows were most likely caused by two large triangular-shaped objects.”
The late UFOlogist Donald Keyhoe related accounts of triangular-shaped objects that were also seen in England and Scotland in 1895, said Keyhoe (p. 63).
Mr. Helger Berg and a work-companion spotted a triangular UFO at Eklorna, Alaska in 1936. “…the sound reminded me of when the pilot shuts down a turbine. It had a kind whining sound until it finally peters out,” said Berg.
Similar triangular UFOs were seen in 1950, 1953, and 1954 in Korea, Germany, California, New York, and Canada, not to mention in many other countries around the globe.
Eleven crew members of a British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) Strato Cruiser and most of its fifty-one passengers saw a similar UFO for eighteen minutes on June 29, 1954. The object at first appeared to be a dark blob accompanied by an “array of objects” lined up three in front and three in back. “They likened it to a battleship with escort ships,” said Marler.
Captain James Howard noted that the smaller objects appeared to enter and exit the larger object. The larger object appeared to change from a pear-shaped UFO to “an enormous delta-wing plane” and then to a “giant telephone receiver lying on its back in the sky.”
A jet interceptor pilot noted that upon his approach to the UFOs, the smaller objects suddenly disappeared. Crew members said that the smaller objects went into the larger object. The larger object said to be as large as an oceanliner, shrunk in size and disappeared.
A MUFON CGI Image of a Typical Triangle UFO
Another typical sighting was on September 3, 1965, by law enforcement officials, deputies Bethel McCoy and Bob Goode, as they drove south of Houston, Texas. “It hovered in the air. It was eerie,” the witnesses said, “It was shaped like a triangle 200 feet long and 40 to 50 feet high. It had a purple light on its left side and a blue one on its right side.”
The UFO followed them in a high-speed pursuit, and then abruptlystopped and disappeared.
Mrs. Robert Gorisek of La Salle, Illinois witnessed a triangular object on March 25, 1966, that hovered over her car for over an hour. The object seemed to follow her and several witnesses as they drove through several towns.
On the same day, Mrs. R.H. Chappell and Miss Janie Kidd observed the triangular UFOs in Victoria, British Columbia; both had ruby red lights that were flashing back and forth between the UFOs “as if they were signaling each other.”
THE JANUARY 5, 2000 TRIANGLE
Marler outlined one of the best typical triangular UFO cases, during the night of January 5, 2000, which invaded the skies over Highland, Lebanon, Shiloh and Millstadt, Illinois. The UFO was witnessed by multiple law enforcement officers as well as several civilian people. Sighting-descriptions varied from triangular to a box-shaped object as big as a “two-story house.”

Officer Craig Stevens gave a classic description of the object as it passed near Liederkranz Park on the north end of Millstadt, Illinois. The UFO appeared about 500 to 1,000 feet in altitude. It moved very slowly with a lowdecibel buzzingsound. “He could see the object had a white light on the left side, right side, and center of the back end,” said Marler, “In addition, there was a single red light on the bottom. The back end also appeared to be slightly recessed.”
Officer Stevens took Polaroid pictures which did not turn out, except to show blurry lights.
Officer Ed Barron and Officer David Martin observed the object to travel about ten miles in two to three seconds, with an estimated UFO speed of 12,000 miles per hour.
“The resulting effect should have been the creation of a sonic boom which would have rattled the entire area,” said Marler. “However, no such reports were made by the witnesses or residents of the surrounding areas.”
Marler speculated amongst several theories including an unknown and secret military craft. “The second is that this was not a military vehicle and was completely foreign to military officials,” said Marler. “If this scenario is true, the implications are chilling. A genuine UFO flew by a major military installation and caught the military completely by surprise to the point where no overt defensive response was initiated.”
THE TINLEY PARK UFOs
On the evenings of August 21 and October 31st, 2004, at Tinsley Park, Illinois, a triangular UFO was sighted by numerous witnesses (including three videos and three photographs).
“In at least two videos the object was recorded rotating in the base below and above itself. This is a very unusual maneuver clearly recorded and then mentioned in the narration,” said MUFON State Director, Sam Maranto.
One 48-year-old witness said that about 10 p.m. on August 21st, 2004, a red light came along the same path of the previous triangular UFO flight path. There was no noise and the object floated very slowly over the tops of houses.
“Their evaluations of footage and Graphic illustrations of the estimated size of the triangular object is nothing short of dynamic,” said Sam Maranto about a UFO Hunters television show, “they did an excellent job getting the point across in the show that, whatever the nature of the object, it was many times larger than anything in our flying arsenal today.”
In chapter seven, Marler traveled through twenty profile characteristics that seemed to have defined the triangular UFOs.
Photo of Belgium Triangle Craft – June 1990
A triangular craft spotted near Fleet, England in 1978 moved in a “triangular pattern.” “It was very erratic going backward and forwards,” said the witness.
Triangle crafts were witnessed during 1980-1981 in the state of Pennsylvania. In one instance, the object “is described as a triangle shaped, makes no noise but moves quickly back and forth and up and down.”
Other triangle UFOs were flying with “blunt-end-forward.” On January 31, 1978, a New Jersey woman saw a triangle-craft about 11 p.m. “It was a triangle with the point at the back and a lot of red and white lights,” said the witness, “more than planes usually have.” There was no sound.
A triangular object with luminous points of light on its angles was spotted in 1965 in Bienne, Sweden, moving very fast north to south along the Jura Mountains. Suddenly, the object stopped, changing color from yellow to dark red, made a 180-degree turn – a 90-degree change of course – and vanished.
About 7:00 p.m., January 1994, Fujitsu-gun, Japan, a witness was approached in his car by a bright light, which he recollected as three lights attached to a dark triangular-shaped object which flooded his car with a brilliant white light described “as being just like a searchlight.” The object increased its speed and disappeared.

On November 3, 1961, about 4:30 p.m. in Eyres Monsell, England, a witness observed a triangular object with an orange center; the object flew an estimated 600 miles per hour and resembled an Auro Vulcan bomber in size.
Marler’s book was fore worded by retired US Army Colonel John Alexander. Alexander had an impressive career as a Green Beret war hero, as well as an adviser to the CIA, the U.S Special Operations Command and the National Intelligence Council on Foreign Relations. While genuinely upholding the reality of alien UFOs, Alexander has done his share of critical debunking of much of ufology, to the chagrin of many ufologists. He debunked, in this case, the belief that triangular UFOs were actually secret military vehicles:
“Regarding triangular UFOs, in particular, conspiracy theorists repeatedly have taken the position mentioned above – secret government research. It never mattered that such a conclusion defies both facts and logic specifically, while the government does develop advanced aircraft in secret,” said Alexander, “they do not conduct test flights of well-illuminated prototypes near the major metropolitan area. Yet, that is where many of the large triangles have been observed.” (p. 2.)
(There were herein several controversies related to the topic of the origins of triangular aircraft that are outside of the book, which Erdmann is attempting to cover.).
Micheal S. Heiser – Researcher
Dr. Michael Heiser’s posts included summaries and opinions of Mr. Marler’s work, as well as thoughts on a foreword for the book provided by Colonel John Alexander. Dr. Heiser supported Mr. Marler for his research and endorsed the book to those interested in UFOs. Heiser also expressed concerns about dodgy lapses of relevant data, particularly committed by Colonel John Alexander. Colonel Alexander continued to suggest that he could identify triangular craft that were regular secret operations as opposed to those which are not, “implying some are supposedly not (normal aircraft…SE), all the while at least pretending to be virtually oblivious to the history of man-made triangle craft and the interest held in them by two of his former employers, the Department of Defense and Robert Bigelow’s National Institute of Discovery Science.”
Dr. Heiser posted on his personal blog, UFO Religions, in what had so far been a two-part post titled, Thoughts. Michael Heiser, who holds a Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible, recently made a couple particularly noteworthy comments on Marler’s book about triangular UFOs.
“…All the above makes it very odd that the words ‘dirigible’ and ‘airship’ do not even appear in Marler’s index. It’s as though research in that direction and behavioral overlap didn’t even register with him. Since those terms don’t appear in his index, it makes sense that the names of Busby and Danelek are also absent. They are the authors of the two major books on the airship sightings in the late 1890s.”
Artist Depiction of The Airships Wave of 1896 – 1897
“But if we assume the craft to be neither imaginary nor extraterrestrial, what is left? Only one possibility remains, and that is that the vessel seen in the skies over much of the United States in the winter of 1896-97 was a powered balloon or, more accurately, a dirigible, possibly being put through its paces by some intrepid inventor intent on bringing lighter-than-air flight to humanity.”
“I’m not going to claim that dirigible airship technology is ‘the’ explanation for triangular craft, or even that there is a direct line of evolution from the early patents to today,” said Heiser. “For sure one could make that case, but that wouldn’t actually prove that airships are behind the triangular UFOs. It would only provide a working theory. I don’t know those triangular UFOs are dirigible, even nuclear ones.
“Their omission from the discussion is unwarranted. I read Marler’s book quickly and perhaps there’s some mention of any of this, but I would have missed it for brevity. He too quickly concludes that explanations not focused on ETs are the drawing board for some time…I’m no more omniscient than Colonel Alexander, but I’ll be more upfront about that. What I do know is that this technology deserves to be part of the discussion…(not) only about the delta-wing jet craft. He’s missed the Airbus.”
Igor Pasternak and Worldwide Aeros Corporation Passenger Blimp
Heiser continued with a list of modern Lighter Than Air (LTA) aircraft that demonstrated the actuality of this generation of flight. The Department of Defense (DOD) had committed $35,000,000 to an “Aero” prototype. Heiser acknowledged several modern LTA crafts, such as Lockheed Martin’s “Sky tug.” Another is the “Space Blimp”:
“The orbital airship, also called the space blimp, is a proposed space transportation system that carries payloads to and from low Earth orbit…In the Airship to Orbit (ATO) design envisioned by JP Aerospace, there are three components. A conventional airship (Ascender) lifts payloads up to 30-40 kilometers above the ground – roughly the maximum altitude a conventional airship can achieve. At this altitude, the second component, a docking station (Dark Sky Station), acts as a resupply station for the third stage. The third stage is an ‘orbital airship’ (Orbital Ascender), which takes payloads to low earth orbit via an ion engine in three to nine days (i.e., it accelerates itself horizontally to orbital velocity and gains sufficient altitude). Their estimated marginal costs are one dollar per ton per mile of altitude, and their development costs thus far have been under one million dollars.”
Tom Levine of Levicom, LLC (email@example.com. PO Box 1948, Fair Oaks, California, 95628) had done extensive research into February 2007 triangular ‘flap’ that occurred over the multiple areas during that month. Basically, Levine believed the triangles were BigBlackDirigibles (BBDs) using unconventional and electrokinetic drives. He also pointed to similar crafts such as the Dynaship 2 Aereons.
Clyde Lewis outlined the opinions of UFO researcher Tim Mathews in UFOEvidence.Org:
“Tim Mathews is the ‘Angry young man’ of British ufology. He has upset the cozy state that the British scene had got into the post-Bufora/Alien Autopsy film and has earned a fast reputation for straight talking and cutting through much of the malaise the scene found itself in the last year. He believes that many sightings can be explained by secret aircraft and suppressed military tests. Mr. Mathews exposes a world of political maneuvering by the authorities to protect financial and political interests. He has exposed the existence of secret planes from year’s back, which would be considered ‘cutting edge’ today.
“Mathews believes that giving the label of an extraterrestrial craft to a UFO is premature, and has spent a lot of his time showing that Military Technology is the most likely answer behind the enigmatic UFO. His research has shown that a lot of flying disc and triangle technology comes from Nazi Germany. It has always been the objective of designers of aircraft to find a craft that can ascend and descend vertically. The craft would have to be circular without wings. Over time we have seen these craft and attributed their remarkable capabilities to some extra-terrestrial intelligence.”
Marler offered the testimony of several noted ufologists and scientists on the topic of UFOs and triangular crafts..
Researcher John Alexander
John Alexander had commented on the belief that secret military operations impinged upon sightings of triangular UFOs, having previously been the director of all USAF research and development at Wright-Patterson AFB: he asked a military official in the Secret Projects division about his research and triangular aircraft:
“He indicated we had nothing larger than the C-5 although the Russian Antonov AN-124 is even bigger. Neither of these approach the size reported on many occasions. I am also aware of a proposal by one of the topmost aerospace defense contractors to build a large semi-rigid, lighter-than-aircraft specifically for logistical purposes. They indicated they could not even get any military support for the concept and that was within the last fifteen years.”
Heiser noted that his research contradicted Alexander’s comments. He also wondered, despite outward appearances, if Alexander was privy to highest “Need to Know” information at many different security levels, or was simply being led away from “all” the facts.
“Certainly, many doubts remain, but I do believe that the U.S military has some sort of flying triangle, perhaps several types…even so, it is a long stretch to argue that all of the triangle reports can be attributed to ‘our’ technology. Frankly, many of these crafts do not appear to come from any conceivable terrestrial source.” (p. 245)
Richard Dolan – UFO Researcher
Investigator Ray D. Sanford said on November 18, 2014, that he likewise did not exclude an extraterrestrial source:
“Along with his gift of penetrating `trait analysis’ [See, especially, chapter 7, Establishing a Profile.], the author thoroughly demolishes the myth that the class of triangular and quasi-triangular objects defined in his analysis could be ‘black project’ vehicles. And Marler doesn’t just provide abundant descriptive evidence that the classes of evidence defined in his fascinating study constitute a group of vehicles unmatched by any terrestrially-sourced technology, he provides readers some examples that reveal state-of-the-art terrestrial technology as highly inferior by comparison.
“For example, on page 200, the author bolsters that conclusion with his highly appropriate reference from the Washington Post of August 15, 2012, headed ‘Hyper-sonic craft X-51A fails the latest test.’ That ‘Wave rider’ aircraft had to be launched from a B-52 bomber, incorporated a scram-jet combustion engine (producing a fairly conventional looking effect-trail behind it), and the flight had to be quickly scrapped due to a problem with a control surface.”
United Kingdom researcher George Wingfield pondered: “However scientists do speculate that travel through space and time might one day be possible if mass is somehow converted into energy in a non-destructive way that allows its reconstruction when it reaches its destination.”
“Much has been written on the subject (of the Rendlesham case…SE). However, this brief review serves to illustrate yet one more triangular UFO report,” said Marler, “that does not conform to the typical profile we are familiar with.”
THE CENTER FOR UFO STUDIES
Mark Rodeghier, Scientific Director for the Center for UFO Studies, the international study group originated by Dr. J. Allen Hynek, summarized conclusions for extraterrestrial origin of high strangeness triangular craft:
“As we compared triangle UFOs to the triangle – and – boomerang-shaped aircraft developed by the military, it became clear that the vast majority of ‘triangle UFOs’ were not conventional, or unconventional, technology. I described this with aviation experts and aviation journalists, and they were uniformly unaware of any terrestrial craft that could be causing these reports.” (p. 245.)
“Finally, the large, slow triangle UFOs, viewed by hundreds, even thousands, demonstrated how willfully the establishment, represented by government, academic, and the elite news media, can disregard something that is so ubiquitous, so visible, and so unearthly. It is possible not to see the elephant in the room, even when that elephant is a 300-foot triangular-shaped UFO.” (p. 248.)
MAKE OWN CONCLUSIONS
A thorough search of Marler’s book did reveal many new aspects of the on-going triangular UFO mystery. There were ample artwork and witness documents in the book.
Certainly, the bizarre and very strange performances of many triangular UFOs did tend to dismiss a normalterrestrial origin. The key word here is Normal. It may be possible that in the twists and turns of history there were hidden histories wherein are secreted a hybrid origin of ‘normal’ but also alien roots.
Fortean researchers Nick Redfern and Irene Bott summarized in AlienEncounters Magazine:
“There are two scenarios: either AVRO and British Aerospace have been flying highly advanced triangular shaped aircraft throughout Manchester and the surrounding areas for at least four decades (and if so, why, forty years on, is such technology not in widespread use?), or an unknown presence has been operating in our skies and utilising triangular aeroforms for more than four decades.”
Steve Erdmann suggested a “ThirdRail” explanation behind, not just triangular UFO sightings, but many reported high-strangeness UFOs: that an alien and secretive reality has coexistedalongside our own (more obvious) existence.
From an interview with Nikola Tesla – New York Herald Tribune, Oct. 15, 1911:
“Not at all,” said Dr. Tesla. “The aeroplane is fatally defective. It is merely a toy–a sporting play-thing…The flying machine of the future–my flying machine–will be heavier than air, but it will not be an aeroplane. It will have no wings. It will be substantial, solid, stable…My flying machine will have neither wings nor propellers. You might see it on the ground and you would never guess that it was a flying machine. Yet it will be able to move at will through the air in any direction with perfect safety, higher speeds than have yet been reached, regardless of weather and oblivious of ‘holes in the air’ or downward. currents
“It will ascend in such currents if desired. It can remain absolutely stationary in the air, even in a wind, for a great length of time. Its lifting power will not depend upon any such delicate devices as the bird has to employ but upon positive mechanical action.”
“You will get stability through gyroscopes?” the interviewer asked.
“Through gyroscopic action of my engine, assisted by some devices I am not yet prepared to talk about,” he replied.
Dr. Tesla smiled an inscrutable smile.
“All I have to say on that point is that my airship will have neither gas bag, wings nor propellers,” he said. “It is the child of my dreams, the product of years of intense and painful toil and research. I am not going to talk about it any further. But whatever my airship may be, here at least is an engine that will do things that no other engine ever has done, and that is something tangible.”
One Example of Nicola Tesla’s Flying Saucer Inventions
“Until hard UFO evidence is presented for the general public’s consumption (e.g., actual UFO parts thereof), this mystery will continue,” said Marler. “However, the thirst for understanding to fuel the investigations and research until the day when a better understanding is made of this most intriguing phenomenon.” (p. 241)
(An ending footnote of interest in regards to the triangular sighting report mentioned on pages 204-206 about the December 19, 1967 triangle. The report, if I am correct, was discovered by Steve Erdmann while he visited Marler’s home during one of several visits. Erdmann and Marler were researching the files for relative data. Erdmann made a somewhat “Eureka” exclamation upon spotting the previously undiscovered December 19 report and presented it to Marler, to his joy; history in the making.)
“UFOs, ETs, and Alien Abductions summarizes the evidence about UFOs and close encounters,” said author Don Donderi, “it explains why that evidence is reliable and why we react to it the way we do. It explains why most professional scientists ridicule or ignore the evidence. It argues that governments should reveal what they know about UFOs and close encounters.”
(UFOs, ETs, and Alien Abductions: A Scientist Looks at the Evidence, Don Donderi, PhD. Hampton Roads Publishing Company, Inc., Charlottesville, Va. 22906. www.redwheelweiser.com/newsletter, 978-465-0504, 2013, 231 pages, $22.95.)
TRAIL OF EVIDENCE.
Donderi’s biography said that he graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA and BSC in biological psychology; he was an applied psychologist for IBM Corporation as a developer of navigation displays for the B-52 bomber, also an Associate Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research at McGill University. He stated that his professional expertise has concluded “that some people have come into involuntary close contact with extraterrestrial, and I think that government statements about UFOs conceal more than they reveal.”.
Dr. Don Donderi, Scientist, Author and UFOlogist.
The author started on a series of UFO cases that he personally gave credence to, some are “classic” UFO cases, others are fairly unknown: the summer, 1973 Ottawa UFO and humanoid sighting by Mr. and Mrs. X, the July 17, 1957 Rb-47 case, the October 18, 1973 Coyne helicopter incident, “Low, Big, and Slow” V-shaped or triangular UFOs, Belgium, 1989, Yukon territory UFO of December 11, 1996 (“…diameter of this round UFO was nearly one mile, and its estimated height from top to bottom was one third of a mile.”), the Fall, 1976 Tehran UFO, and a host of other classical cases..
The author ventured through the various stages and investigators through the years, beginning more or less with Donald E. Keyhoe, a retired Marine Corps officer and pilot (December 26, 1949), the various UFO groups, both civilian and government, the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), The Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS), the hallmark group of the Air Force Technical Adviser and astronomer, J. Allen Hynek, continuing into the Air Force Project Blue Book and further into the Condon UFO Committee (1966-1968), the Congressional Hearing of 1968, as well as the Advancement of Science Symposium (AAAS) of 1969, and others.
Donderi pretty well accepted Hynek’s seven classes of UFO reports, including abduction by occupants. He acknowledged that the contactees of the 50s-60s were “self-delusion” (Page 76). He slid into findings of UFO and abduction researchers George O’banski and Budd Hopkins. Donderi built a number of, what scientist R.V. Jones referred to as, evidence “touchstones.”.
Donderi considered the Barney and Betty Hill case of September 19, 1961 as the “Index Case” (though he stated that Betty’s grandiose post-1961 claims, “…sometimes verifiably, sometimes with more imagination than common sense,” worked against her). He went on to mention similar cases of abduction that would tend to substantiate these as “touchstone” cases: the Buff Ledge Camp, August 7, 1968 abductions, Burlington, Vermont, the Linda Cortile November 30, 1989 abduction, Manhattan, the Flagler, Colorado, November 7, 1989 abduction case, among others..
The Barney and Betty Hill Abduction Case .
The author toured the various “commonalities” in Touchstone cases. By the time he added all the important features (pp. 128-129) of the Touchstone cases, he also disclosed narratives that didn’t seem all that far afield from the Adamski, Bethuram, Angelucci-type contactees he so decried (pp. 17-18), “….include a tall insect-like creature acting in the role of examiner, and occupants whose facial features are a blend of a terrestrial reptile and conventional humanoid and whose skin is rough and greenish.”.
Don Donderi said that there was “no reason to doubt the competence or veracity of the abductees or the reporters, and the information presented about those six cases is credible.” (p. 130) He pointed to a number of tests administered by professional psychologists. Donderi said that the research also indicated that the “abduction reports” were made by persons who were “no more, no less” involved in fantasy-prone tendencies than “anyone else.” (In Steve Erdmann’s purview of individuals, UFOlogical or otherwise, he has seen conservative and so-called respectable people fabricate and lie quite convincingly: some of their ‘stories’ are quite creative, and their motivations are often hidden and only known to themselves.)
A large portion of Donderi’s concern was the use and authenticity of hypnotism. He stated that the reported abductions can be attributed to something that “did actually happen” or is an “unwitting fabrication” by a “collaborative effort” by UFO reporters and the researcher/handlers. Even including the similarities and consistencies of abductee stories, Steve Erdmann contended that this arena is basically hearsay without the hard physical evidence: hypnotism, may be a part of, but certainly not the crux, and was no substitute.
“Jenny Randles also gave a strong warning to the use of hypnosis in suspected cases of abductions – Hypnosis destroys evidence and creates memories. It is not a serum of veracity, she also said.”
“From this data several conclusions emerged. Various witnesses explained their doubts about hypnosis. They felt it made them more confused, not less so. They were unclear of the reality status of their experience. Some felt positively harmed psychologically by the trauma of hypnosis.”
When the larger scenery of reported UFOs are taken into account, more than the six cases that Donderi considered “touchstone,” must be contended with. Humanoid cases described a large variety of UFOnaut appearances and actions, some that didn’t seem to directly relate to the “steps” or “angles” in Donderi’s recommended cases. UFO researcher Jacques Vallee has long contended and compared some UFO cases surrounding occupants to folklore legends about elves, haunts, ghosts, urban-tale-like stories; Vallee, a computer scientist and prolific writer on the subject, demurred, and he gave five reasons why, to quote:
“(1) Unexplained close encounters are far more numerous than required for any physical survey of the earth; (2) The humanoid body structure of the alleged ‘aliens‘ is not likely to have originated on another planet and is not biologically adapted to space travel; (3) The reported behavior in thousands of abduction reports contradicts the hypothesis of genetic or scientific experimentation on humans by an advanced race; (4) The extension of the phenomenon throughout recorded history demonstrates that UFOs are not a contemporary phenomenon; and (5) The apparent ability of UFOs to manipulate space and time suggests radically different and richer alternatives.”.
Aliens About to Abduct (Movie Close Encounters oftheThird Kind).
But by 1969, when he published Passport to Magonia (Regnery), Vallee’s assessment of the UFO phenomenon had undergone a major shift. Much to the bewilderment of the “scientific ufologists” who had seen him as one of their heroes, Vallee now seemed to be have shied away from the extraterrestrial hypotheses and promulgated the radical view that UFOs are paranormal in nature and a modern space age manifestation of a phenomenon which assumed mysterious guises.
“When the underlying archetypes are extracted,” Vallee wrote, “the saucer myth is seen to coincide to a remarkable degree with the fairy-faith of Celtic countries…religious miracles…and the widespread belief among all peoples concerning entities whose physical and psychological descriptions place them in the same category as the present-day ufonauts.”.
Vallee, in fact, has co-authored a book on historical UFOs wherein the authors relayed accounts that are intertwined with ancient gods and angels and other mystical beings. Some cases contained far more fantastical elements than those given in the six Touchstone cases Donderi offered. (Wonders in the Sky: Unexplained Aerial Objects from Antiquity to Modern Times by Jacques Vallee and Chris Aubeck, Publisher: Tarcher. Year: 2010.)
“They reveal that unidentified flying objects have had a major impact not only on popular culture but on our history, on our religion, and on the models of the world humanity has formed from deepest antiquity,” said researcher David Taylor. “What this book does is put transient aerial phenomena in a proper historical context. So for example, in the seventeenth century, we have reports of sky battles and in the medieval period we have encounters with fairies and the Blessed Virgin Mary who descend from luminous objects. This book is a delight to read, for both the ‘paranormal’ investigator and the historian, as it gives insight into the social beliefs of the periods when these experiences were reported.”
Taylor continued: ‘‘The approach of both Vallée and Aubeck leads to an intelligent analysis of the sightings and their impact on human culture and beliefs, which is enlightening. For those who believe that UFOs have no place in the realm of psychical research – this book will show you how very wrong you are. UFOs are central to a whole tradition of transformative psychic experience throughout the ages. Highly recommended.”
Professor David Hufford concurred: “Their rigorously scientific insistence allows Vallee and Aubeck to retain the most challenging and interesting aspects of these events without the distraction of premature commitment to any particular interpretation. That, I believe, is true science: to follow the data wherever they lead and to move away from established theory when it fails to deal adequately with the data.” (Professor David Hufford, Penn State College of Medicine, Author, The Terror that Comes in the Night.)
English researcher Jenny Randles took a look at the question: “Do we need the concept of aliens in the modern UFO pantheon or are these beings just a space age equivalent of the dragons and the fairies – a once culturally relevant motif, that suited a particular time and place from which we have since moved on?”
Likewise, taking into account the large variety and diversity of the UFO phenomena, it was suspected that scientist Paul R. Hill’s theorems on UFO sightings (Unconventional Flying Objects, 1995) are not fulfilling “the goal being to build a coherent understanding” about UFO ‘function.’ His approach was a little too pat, particularly if – in actuality – UFOs are from different ‘causes,’ not a single origin..
Are UFO Abductions Just Fairy Creatures?.
UFO FAIRY ANTICS.
The UFO phenomenon described antics of the UFO landscape that went beyond suggested conventional Touchstone depictions. There are many examples, but we will take just one: The Kelly–Hopkinsville encounter, also known as the Hopkinsville Goblins Case, and to a lesser extent the Kelly Green Men Case, was the name given to a series of connected incidents of alleged close encounters with supposedextraterrestrial beings on the evening of August 21, 1955. The following was a summation from Wikipedia:
“On the evening of August 21, 1955, Billy Ray Taylor of Pennsylvania was visiting the Sutton family of Kentucky. The Sutton family home was a rural farmhouse located near the towns of Kelly and Hopkinsville, in Christian County, Kentucky (the farmhouse still stands today although the Sutton family moved soon after the incident). There were a total of eleven people in the house that night, including the children of the two families..
The Kelly-Hopkinsville UFO Encounter.
“The Sutton farmhouse had no running water, causing Billy Ray Taylor to go outside to the water pump for a drink at about 7:00 p.m. Taylor said he observed strange lights in the sky to the west, which he believed to be an unusual craft. He described it as disc-shaped in appearance, and featured lights on its side that had ‘all of the colors of the rainbow’. He ran back to the house excitedly telling the others about his ‘flying saucer’ sighting, but no one believed him; instead thinking that he had become overly excited after seeing a vivid ‘shooting star.’
“At about 8.00 p.m., the families began hearing strange and unexplained noises outside. The Sutton family dog which was in the yard outside began barking loudly and then hid under the house, where it remained until the next day. Going outside a few minutes later with their guns, Billy Ray Taylor and Elmer ‘Lucky’ Sutton then asserted that they saw a strange creature emerge from the nearby trees.
“When the creature approached to within about 20 feet, the two men began shooting at it, one using a shotgun, the other man using a .22rifle. There was a noise ‘sounding like bullets being rattled about in a metal drum.’ and the creature, they said, then flipped over and fled into the darkness and shadows. Sure that they had wounded the creature, Lucky and Solomon went out to look for it. Hendry writes that as the men were stepping from the porch, they saw one of the creatures perched on an awning. They again shot at the creature, and it was knocked from the roof. Again they heard the rattling noise, although the creature was apparently unharmed..
Artist Depiction of the 1955 Kelly-Hopkinsville UFO Encounter.
“Lucky and Solomon returned to the house in a disturbed state. Within minutes, Lucky’s brother J. C. Sutton said that he saw the same creature (or at least a similar creature) peer into a window in the home; J. C. and Solomon shot at it, breaking the window, whereupon it too flipped over and fled. The creatures could be heard loudly scurrying about on the roof, and scratching as though trying to break through. For the next few hours, the witnesses asserted that the creatures repeatedly approached the home, either popping up at the doorway or at windows in an almost playful manner, only to be shot at each time they did. The witnesses were unsure as to how many of the creatures there were; except for one sighting of two at the same time, all other sightings were of only one, although the first story claimed twelve to fifteen. At one point the witnesses shot one of the beings nearly point blank, and again would insist that the sound resembled bullets striking a metal bucket. The floating creatures’ legs seemed to be atrophied and nearly useless, and they appeared to propel themselves with a curious hip-swaying motion, steering with their arms. Clark writes that ‘if the creatures were in a tree or on the roof when hit [by gunfire], they would float, not fall, to the ground.’”
Michele Carlton covered the story for the Kentucky New Era News, describing the impish and circus-type behavior:
“‘Lucky’ Sutton and other family members said they had a gun battle with the creatures that lasted for hours. Most of the Sutton family members who said they fought the aliens off with shotguns are deceased. However, Hawkins and her younger brother, Elmer Sutton Jr., of Trigg County, said their father shared his Kelly experience with them. Hawkins, 41, and Sutton, 35, are the children of “Lucky” Sutton and Glorine Powell, of Trigg County. Their father died on Dec. 5, 1995.
“He talked to me about it because I was one of the last ones to leave home,” the younger Sutton said. “I prodded him about it a lot. A lot of times he wouldn’t talk about it. If I’d catch him in the right mood, he’d sit down and talk for hours about it. When he did, I’d listen. To be honest with you, he knew some day he’d die. I guess he wanted one of us to know the truth.”
Mankind has made tremendous advances since the days of Ben Franklin: just look at the adventures since Orville and Wilbur Wright in 1904 in aviation alone. Ray Kurzweil extended that progress to its natural progression and he called it “TheLaw of AcceleratingReturns” (March 7, 2001.): “An analysis of the history of technology shows that technological change is exponential, contrary to the common-sense ‘intuitive linear’ view. So we won’t experience 100 years of progress in the 21st century — it will be more like 20,000 years of progress (at today’s rate).”
If superior UFO Races are also bound by TheLawofAcceleratingReturns and they have been far advanced beyond terrestrial technology hundreds of years prior (UFOs by which radar has tracked at over 9,000 miles per hour and accelerations in the range of 1000Gs [p. 153], possibly approaching the speed of light), wouldn’t their technology have well advanced beyond “campy” and “cartoonish” depictions? Compare the inventions of Leonardo da Vinci to our present-day SR-71 Stealth craft: multiply that 2000 times..
A similar theme was voiced in Isaac Asimov’s science-fiction story “The LastQuestion,” a tale of trillions of years of evolution and how mankind will evolve from trapping the energy of stars with 100% efficiency, Hyper-stellar travel, emigration to other Galaxies, Body-Mind separation and fusing the mind with an all-knowing, omniscient computer, a Self-correcting and Self -Adjusting machine capable of learning and building its own predecessor, had become so powerful as to recreate light after all the stars entropy in the end and the universe begins again.
“The story is interesting and enters the black hole of Physics and Religion simultaneously.” It is about “How mankind will evolve, pioneer in space travel and set foot in all the distant Galaxies with the help of Analog Computers (AC).” “The stars and Galaxies died and snuffed out, and space grew black after ten trillion years of running down…One by one Man fused with AC, each physical body losing its mental identity in a manner that was somehow not a loss but a gain.”
And So, The Scientists Posed “The Last Question” to the Computer.
With that type of LawsofAcceleratingReturns: Where would that presently leave the UFO occupants?
Steve Erdmann had not debated UFOs as an intelligent and superior phenomena, he just debated how the evidence should be handled and what it encompassed. Why should such a civilization need “cartoonish” artifacts? Why would it need “domed” aircraft with “spinning rim lights,” and one–pieceoutfits with “backpacks” (Wllie Begay and Guy Tossie, Ririe, Idaho, November 2, 1967)? Would they be far advanced beyond “ovaldoorways,” medical “probes,” “books,” (pp. 96-97) “tables,” and “benches” (pp. 113, 114, 116); for that matter, would they need ramps, panoramic portholes, flashinglights, as if a “display” as seen in various assorted descriptions, much like scenes out of a 1950’sscience–fiction movie? UFO vehicle designs seemed to far out-number the innovations seen in the terrestrial automobile market..
Some UFOs seem to be Replicas of Our Own Conventionality.
Donderi seemed more cogent when he spoke of the “paradigms” of science, and how “fear” of the UFO phenomena caused our place in the universe as being threatened. “The existing paradigm constraints normal science, regardless of the evidence.” (p. 164) He said: “Those institutions administered by a meritocracy of capable people: the cultural elites.” (p. 190)
The question arose, however: just how much “fear” and “ignorance” are involved with humans if governments have crashed UFOs in their possession? (pp. 176-184) Donderi went into detail concerning the 1947 Roswell UFO crash.
“The small group of senior scientists who helped the government in the immediate postwar period was the people most likely to be asked for advice about the security threat posed by technologically superior UFOs,” said Donderi, “but who the UFO overseers were then, and who they are now, is not known. It is one of the better-kept secrets of the U.S government.”

Steve Erdmann – Independent Investigative Journalist
He described the ships leader as looking like a “German Nazi” wearing a shiny black jacket, scarf and cap. (Actual quote: “…another figure has an EVIL face… he looks like a German Nazi… His eyes! His eyes. I’ve never seen eyes like that before.”)
Richard S. Shaver once said about the Hidden World beneath us: “The unseen world beneath our feet, malignant and horrible, is complete in its mastery of earth. And most horrible of all, it is a world of madmen.”.
Artist Depiction of Richard Shaver’s Underworld.
KEEPOUT! was a smoothly written book about the various super-secret government and military sites about the world and the accompanying legends, stories and myths that have culturally arisen about these tales. Many accounts had to do with claims of how powerful and cryptic institutions have joined with stories of monsters, UFOs, and government experimentation with elements of public control. I am not sure that Nick Redfern meant, however, for the book to be a realistically scientific journal.
Redfern tells of mysterious animal deaths associated with the Dug Way Proving Ground; there were the sheep deaths – about 6,000 – in 1968. Fifty horse deaths were believed connected in 1978. Redfern outlines where humans were probably experimented upon with viruses and biological warfare. Animal and cattle mutilations are also on the scale of interest, though officially debunked as only predator damage.
Mysterious animal deaths and mutilations have been occurring around the globe in almost every conceivable country. Redfern speaks of cases primarily in West America, but cases have happened in South America and even British Columbia: horses, sheep, deer, rabbits, cats – often in snow and mud with no signs of struggle, dropped from above causing broken ribs and bones from the impact. Special parts are taken from the bodies as if done by surgery..
Animals are Mysteriously Mutilated and Dropped from Above .
MAPIT and Stephen Mera of Manchester’s Anomalous Phenomena Investigative Team of Congleton, Cheshire, England told of cases were farmers were only a few hundred yards away and the animals were in good health a short time before, only to find them mutilated immediately afterwards: no footprints, some in mud, and in weather too cold for insects. Others were found tangled in telegraph poles and wires.
“The simple fact is we are no nearer to the discovering the truth behind mutilations,” said Darren Perks, investigator and UFO researcher from Shropshire. “We know that there is a pattern to them, which in most cases would suggest that there is a ‘purpose’ to all this, but what is that ‘purpose’? (August 7, 2012.)
WORLD WAR II PLUNDER.
Also covered is the World War II plunder of artifacts and gold by the Nazi Regime. Hitler and his cohorts were not only seeking world conquest but also obtaining the world’s riches and the hiding of same in various clandestine hideaways. There was also $440 million in gold in the Reich bank. The Holy Grail, The Spear of Destiny, Noah’s Ark, and other ancient artifacts became targets of the Utashi.
Redfern could have gone into various connected stories. There were many allusions to “hideouts” that the Nazi Empire had in planning, should the war not turn out to their advantage. Much of the plunder was spread about in various locations: Tuplitzsee in the Styrian Alps, the village of Hradistro near Stechovice, Aussieland Mountains, San Oreste near Monte Soratte, Rome, Italy, Lend, Austria, central Thuringen, Jonas Valley between Crawinkel and Arnstadt and, of course, Argentina, and their hidden empire in the Antarctica.
Allied forces believed they spied Nazi armies moving loot (“long trains heading south in Germany”) into an Alpenestung, either a refuge or a redoubt effort, a large 240 mile-long, 80-mile wide complex of underground tunnels and bomb-proof factories as a “final prolonged resistance.” It was called the National Redoubt, also referred to as the Goterdammerung. Later, the allies found huge underground caverns at Peenemunde, Lake Garda near Limone, and the Hartz Mountains. Colonel R. Allen said some of these were literal “subterranean towns.” It was in these complexes that the fearsome flying weapon, the Kugelblitz, was invented and sighted by pilots. There was talk about the Amerika Rocket, the Nazi atomic bomb, and many others..
The Guinness Book of Records lists the missing Reichsbank treasure as the greatest unsolved bank robbery in history. Where did it go?.
During this same period, a Nazi terrorist group was invented by Peter von Heydebrecht (Hans Otto Heydedreck), born out of German National Socialism, composed of ferociously-trained German youths, called ‘TheWerwolfs.” They were referred to as Wolfsschlucht – Wolf’s Ravine at Bruly-de-Peche (“Werwolf: TheHistoryofthe NationalSocialist Guerrilla Movement,” Alexander Perry Biddiscombe), also called the Unternehmen Werewolf. Under the lead of SS Police General Gutenberger, Operation Carnival, they murdered the Mayor of Aachen, Franz Oppenhoff.
Göbbels’ pre-victory broadcasts spoke of these on Radio Werwolf:
“God has given up the protection of the people . . . Satan has taken command.” Göbbels broadcast of spring at that time: “We Werewolves consider it our supreme duty to kill, to kill and to kill, employing every cunning and while in the darkness of the night, crawling, groping through towns and villages, like wolves, noiselessly, mysteriously.”
The Nazi “Werewolves”.
The topics of super-secret bases that harbor UFO plans are amply covered. Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Area 51, RAF Operation Rotor, Rudloe Manor, The London Underground, The Doomsday Bunkers of Washington and U.S. Naval Observatory, Raven Rock and Site-R, China’s Sanya Base, Russia’s Yamantau and Kosvinski secret bases in the Urals, are just a few of the hidden sites. There are also Russian Zhit Kur and Kosvinsky Yar hidden societies..
UFOs OVER RUSSIA.
This author found such reports of UFOs over the Russian secret site of the Kapustin Yar Cosmodrome in 1970 as Russian rockets were being launched: a gigantic black dirigible-like object was seen hovering over the site and shooting needle-like green rays scanning the rockets. Several soldiers fired at the UFO with their weapons causing the UFO rays to stop: the soldiers were then beset with intense headaches which caused them to scream in pain. The UFO vanished. In November 1979, a bright green, elliptical UFO was again seen over Kapustin Yar, hovering about 30-minutes over secret Russian rockets on the test range. A similar UFO was reported on October 5, 1982, over the Cosmodrome for about four hours.
Russian Progress Rocket at Baikonur Cosmodrome – June 28, 2010.
The site was again visited on July 28, 1989, where several servicemen reported a UFO advancing about the facility for two hours; at one point it was only 19-feet above the ground and appeared to have a blinking signal similar to a camera flash.’ It hovered over the rocket weapons depot at about 65-feet. Its hull was dim green light, like phosphorous, and the object looked like a semi-spherical disc that shot beams of light to surface objects. Ensign V. Voloshin, communications-officer-on-duty, Private G. Kulik, and Ensign B. Levin eventually witnessed three objects altogether over the facility, the third appeared to be cigar-shaped, multicolored with flashes of red. One object flew to a second object and both disappeared (Russia’s RoswellIncident; Stonehill, Mantle, Torres, 2012).
DANNY CASOLARO AND THE MONSTER.
The government secret base at Pine Gap, Australia, the home of multiple rumors, also housed a number of UFO secrets and spy stories. One such mystery not mentioned by Redfern was the death of investigative journalist Danny Casolaro. Researcher Kenn Thomas said this of the Casolaro mystery on June 7, 2001:
“Circumstances shrouded Danny Casolaro’s death in mystery, the single aspect of his research that led to his death may never be known for certain. Hotel workers in Martinsburg, West Virginia found the writer dead in August 1991 in what looked like a faked suicide.
“The ‘head’s up’ warning flashed among students of the conspiracy culture when they learned that files he had on him were missing and the details of his investigative work slowly emerged from friends, family and fellow investigators. Casolaro previously had warned these same people not to believe any reports that he might have wanted to take his own life in some form of ‘accident.’ The fishy circumstances of his death and the probable motivations of his possible killers remain oblivious.
“Danny Casolaro sought to document and expose a sea of covert operatives, super-surveillance software, and transnational spies. He called the monster he saw swimming in that sea ‘theOctopus.’ It consisted of a group of US intelligence veterans that had banded together to manipulate world events for the sake of consolidating and extending its power.
Danny Casolaro as depicted in the Chicago Theater production DannyCasolaroDied for You.
“Of course it involved the Kennedy assassination, but that was just one of many coups and assassinations pulled off by the Octopus since the end of World War II. The group had come together over a covert operation to invade Albania that was betrayed by famed British turncoat Kim Philby. The Octopus had overthrown Jacob Arbenz in Guatemala in 1954. It had targeted operations against Fidel Castro culminating in the Bay of Pigs. It also had tentacles in the political upheavals in Angola, Rhodesia, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Chile, Iran, and Iraq.
“Casolaro had as his main concern Octopus involvement with putting Ronald Reagan in power–the infamous October Surprise—and the role that played in introducing the PROMIS software into police systems around the world.
“Casolaro’s catalogue of membership in the Octopus included such notorious spooks as John Singlaub and the late CIA director William Colby. As heads of the Phoenix assassination program in Vietnam, they had implemented an early version of the PROMIS tracking software to keep tabs on the Viet Cong. Other Octopus tentacles included characters like E. Howard Hunt and Bernard Baker, who later emerged as Watergate burglars.”
MY! WHAT TANGLED WEBS
Financial suspicion, in this case, was identical to one that happened on Assassination Day, November 22, 1963. A mysterious Tony DeAngelis misrepresented his holdings of thousands of tons of salad oil with faked American Express warehouse receipts in order to get bank loans. The New York Times editions that came out before the assassination on that date spoke suspiciously of these facts. “Many people profiteered from the short-selling spree on the markets consequent to that and news of JFK’s murder, including American Express magnate Warren Buffet and a transnational entity called Bunge Corporation, known in the financial literature of the time as TheOctopus,” said Thomas. A dramatic book on the JFK assassination (WeWereControlled?), and its pseudonymous author Lincoln Lawrence, argued that DeAngelis, Jack Ruby, and Lee Harvey Oswald were all mind-controlled in their actions on that day. Thomas’ book NASA, Nazis&JFK: TheTorbittDocumentandtheJFKAssassination (Kempton, IL: Adventures Unlimited Press, 1997) laid out the pattern of events. The twistsandturnsseemedendless: Earl Brian, at one time a brain surgeon, and the other Watergate-Inslaw connection, E. Howard Hunt, had a phone relationship with Casolaro; this all seemingly connected to mind control operations, and the Casolaro story took-on some extremely interesting intrigue..
FRED LEE CRISMAN: INTELLIGENCE AGENT
PROMIS (Prosecutor’s Management Information System) was invented in the 1970s and 1980s as a means of domestic and global surveillance, later developed by the Inslaw Corporation. The coup degrace was the ‘development’ of such plans by President Ronald Reagan’s running-mate and later Vice-president, CIA Director George H.W. Bush. As was eventually discovered, the muddled mystery extends far into Spy and Spook Land (far beyond the length of this report) with roots that reach for miles.
Informant Michael Riconosciuto claimed that he had made his modifications to PROMIS on the tribal lands of the Cabazon Indians in Indio, California as part of a joint project the tribal administrators had with a private security firm known as Wackenhut.
Casolaro’s death may have had to do with the Octopus and manufacturing fraud at Hughes Aircraft, a company that had a long history of exclusive and secret deals with the US government (many involving Area 51) for aerospace technologies. The mystery probably extended far beyondfathomablediscovery. Casolaro, however, had crashed into this corruption in his pursuit of Octopus. A contact he made the day before he died, Bill Turner, gave him documentation of the fraud at Hughes. Turner noted that Casolaro added these papers to the companion bulky file of Casolaro research. After they found Casolaro’s body, Turner got himself arrested on a bank robbery charge in order to remove himself from any further involvement.
The joint venture between the Cabazon Indian tribe and Area 51’s Wackenhut did exist, at least between 1981 and 1983, and Michael Riconosciuto certainly was involved with it at least in some capacity. A report from a task force of the sheriff’s office of Riverside County, California placed Riconosciuto at a weapons demonstration with Earl Brian (“of the CIA”) put on by the Cabazons and Wackenhut.
Riconosciuto also claimed that he had a tape documenting threats made against him by another Justice Department official, but he had thrown it in a marsh near Puget Sound the night he was arrested on trumped-up methamphetamine charges. Casolaro spent many days searching the Puget Sound bog to no avail, looking for the tape that ostensibly could verify the claims of “Danger Man,” Casolaro’s nickname for Riconosciuto.
The Puget Sound incident connected to a famous early UFO event, the 1947 Maury Island UFO case. That event of six flying saucers seen by harbor seamen that left behind slag debris that had been witnessed, or hoaxed, by the business partner of Riconosciuto father, a man named Fred Lee Crisman. (In the 1960s, Crisman was subpoenaed by New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison as part of his investigation of the Kennedy assassination. Some researchers claimed that Crisman was one of the “railyard tramps” arrested near Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963; others note that he possibly gave refuge on his Oregon ranch to a member of the Minutemen, an early militia group investigated by the Warren Commission).
Fred L. Crisman
In Joan Mellen’s book A FarewelltoJustice, Fred Crisman had been identified as one of the hundreds of ‘spooks’ working secretly for the Intelligence community. In her voluminous research on the history of Jim Garrison and the Kennedy assassination, Mellen discovered that Crisman had an association with the OffutAir Force Base and worked with the UnitedStatesArmyAirDefenseCommand. An FOIA request of September 13, 1969, revealed Crisman as Agent 4250. A comment appeared: “…a man that is dangerous to the future of America.”
What did Casolaro know of the Crisman connection, the part it played in Area 51 and the other secret airbase that held his attention, Australia’s Pine Gap?
Pine Gap is the top-secret American underground base located near Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of the land down under, officially known as the Joint Defense Space Research Facility. It was built in 1968 officially to share program data with the Australians.
Renowned intelligence defector Victor Marchetti, who served in the CIA director’s office from 1966 to 1969, now acknowledged that he co-authored the secret agreement between the agency and the Australian Department of Defense on the establishment of the Pine Gap station which investigated spy satellites and intercepted and decoded broadcast communications between foreign powers unfriendly to the U.S: It would check geostationary satellites for wide-ranging information on enemy telemetry, radar emissions, and telecommunications.
Opposition from the Australians to Pine Gap grew as its nature as an espionage facility outside of Australian control became clear. In his book CrimesofPatriots (New York: W.W. Norton & Co, 1987), author Jonathan Kwitny demonstrated that covert manipulation led to the early end in Australia of the administration of Labor Party Prime Minister Gough Whitlam because of his opposition to Pine Gap. Casolaro saw Kwitny’s inability to see the tentacles of the Octopus. “It didn’t take many people to design the apparatus that would ensure the renewal of the lease for the Pine Gap installation near Alice Springs, Australia,” Casolaro wrote.
“After all, how could a democracy spit up a Prime Minister that could sack the security of the Western Alliance?”
Indeed, Gough Whitlam was rousted after his attacks about intelligence agency deceptions over the tragic US policy in East Timor, and the CIA’s funding of Australia’s right-wing Country Party [National Party], as well as his opposition to Pine Gap. Whitlam was not driven from office by an election but was removed [“The Dismissal”] on a technicality. Similarly, George Bush, Jr. “won” the 2000 election in the US on a court-imposed technicality by a governor-general he had appointed, one who had strong ties to the CIA [and represented the British Commonwealth].
No doubt there was suspicious drama about this destabilization, political intrigue, and deception. Much like the investigations into the labyrinths of the John Kennedy assassination, The Casolaro Mystery intertwined and connected through many modern and latent mysteries:
“The Inslaw case is indeed an octopus with tentacles reaching into many dark places, and this telling barely scratches the surface of the layers of deception and intrigue,” said researchers James Retherford and Sherman DeBrosse on February 2, 2010, TheRagBlog. “Like any good spy story, the Islaw–PROMIS saga is marked by its trail of dead, disappeared, and discredited, with claims of as many as 50 murdered. The most remembered casualty was investigative reporter Danny Casolaro, whose naked body was found in a blood-filled bathtub in a Martinsburg, WV, hotel room with multiple slash wounds on his arms and wrists..
Investigative Reporter Danny Casolaro was “suicided” and His Notes and Tape Recorder were Missing.
“Missing was his ever-present briefcase, tape recorder, and notes and outline of his proposed book about the web of intrigue surrounding Iran-Contra, the savings and loan meltdown, BCCI, Contra-connected Wackenhut, Wackenhut-connected INSLAW, the INSLAW-connected October Surprise, and possibly including a secret group of well-connected work-for-hire former spooks running drugs for the Contras.”
RICHARD S. SHAVER
Redfern branched out into wider underground possibilities, such as the Richard S. Shaver Mystery telling of an abandoned race, the Dero, and Tero, which live beneath our feet in the bowels of the planet and do much to hamper and terrorize the lives of surface dwellers. These beings are remnants of ancient civilizations that that long ago left the earth to other worlds to escape from catastrophes on earth. They are also called cryptoterrestrials.
Ray Palmer Edition of the Shaver Mystery
“I began to acknowledge that the extraterrestrial hypothesis suffered from some tantalizing flaws,” said the late author Max Tonnies. “I envision that the cryptoterrestrials engaged in a process of subterfuge, bending our belief system to their own ends.”
“Elements of the pulp science fiction glory days and the Shaver Mystery exist in the very foundations of ufology and in conspiracy literature on underground alien bases at Dulce, New Mexico,” said Richard Taranto, a California newspaper reporter, columnist, and researcher into the Shaver mystery. “In a 1985 Shavertron interview, John Keel, a longtime FATE columnist and author of such classics as TheMothmanProphesies and WhyUFOs?, had this to say about the Shaver Mystery: ‘If Shaver and Palmer had not existed, there would be no ufology. It’s that simple. Palmer started FATE Magazine and he kept the subject alive during its darkest periods. The mystery had to be created before anyone could undertake to solve it.’”
Taranto also said: “The men who helped create the vocabulary of flying saucers, abductions, and an Underworld full of strange and ancient civilizations are gone now. They died in ordinary and not-so-ordinary ways. As the future unfolds, their memory may linger only in the legends they helped create.
“‘Shaver described the flying saucers, and predicted their appearance,’ said Ray Palmer in an interview just before his death. And all this he said from the information he got from the caves. So whether or not it came from his own mental process of some kind, the information was correct and the information he’s given us has been correct so many times that it’s impossible to discard it as fiction.”
Intelligence Agent Fred Crisman was Shot by a Ray-gun in a Dero Firefight in a Jungle Cavern .
If Ray Palmer and Richard S. Shaver had not existed, there would not have been a Fred Crisman connection:
“Fred Crisman was flying fighters in the Pacific until the end. Somehow he seems to have been connected with the OSS in World War II also; it may have been in his Air Commando group. In a link to Palmer, he sent a letter to his magazine saying he was hit by a Ray Gun in a cave in Burma. Somehow this was linked to the ‘Shaver Mystery’ and the underground world of the Deros. This does seem very strange and some would say Fred is a few bricks shy of a load but in my investigations, I found the Japanese were working on a Ray Gun in World War II. It was in development for a long time and tested on animals. The microwave energy caused numerous problems for the researchers. Officially it was never used but officially the A-bomb didn’t exist until it exploded above Hiroshima. When he got home they made him a liaison for Veteran Affairs. Fred ran for county coroner in 1945 but never won the seat.”
Expansive coverage continues including mysterious deaths of scientists that were contributing to medical breakthroughs at Porton Down and Fort Detrich facilities. Redfern includes the 2001 anthrax attacks. Concerning allegations against the late Dr. Bruce Edward Ivans, Redfern says that “one theory suggested that Ivins was nothing more than a Lee Harvey Oswald–style patsy and that the anthrax attacks were actually the work of rogue elements within the Busch administration.” (p. 193)
The government’s statements had deepened the questions about the case against Ivins, who killed himself before he was charged with a crime. Searches of his car and home in 2007 found no anthrax spores, and the FBI’s eight-year, $100 million investigations never proved he mailed the letters or identified another location where he might have secretly dried anthrax into an easily inhaled powder.
Earlier that year, a report by the National Academy of Science questioned the genetic analysis that had linked a flask of anthrax stored in Ivins’ office to anthrax contained in the letters.
“If you want to commit the perfect crime, first find the perfect patsy. What better candidate could there be then Dr. Bruce Ivins? If you want to rule by fear what better way than an almost invisible poison that could be anywhere,” said Dr. Elliot Lyons on August 4, 2008. “Could this be only a part of a greater conspiracy? I leave it to you to ponder.”
NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON’T
The Eldridge: Philadelphia Experiment – Philadelphia Harbor – August 1943
Similar intrigue developed in the topic of “invisibility experiments” and a retelling of the legendary Philadelphia Experiment at the Montauk military installation (now called Camp Hero State Park) and the alleged disappearance of the U.S.S Eldridge from the Philadelphia Naval Yard transmigrated to the Norfolk, Virginia shipyard in a 1943 operation called Project Rainbow. Part of the tale had to do with the materialization and missing of crew members. There was a vague news item about displaced sailors popping-up in a bar and then suddenly vanishing before witnesses. UFO researcher Jacques Vallee believed the underage sailor was slinked out the back door by barmaids giving a semblance of disappearing (February 21, 2007). Talk about secret canals with which submarines could be moved 200 miles from point to point, seemed to add mitigating factors. The use of these Chesapeake and Delaware canals – part of Operation Drumbeat – led to the reality of the central claim that the Philadelphia experiment may have a basis in fact, however. Edward Dudgeon described the event:
“I was in [a] bar that evening, we had two or three beers, and I was one of the two sailors who are said to have disappeared mysteriously…The fight started when some of the sailors bragged about the secret equipment [radar, sonar, special screws, a new compass, etc.] and were told to keep their mouths shut. Two of us were minors…The waitresses scooted us out the back door as soon as trouble began and later denied knowing anything about us. We were leaving at two in the morning. The Eldridge had already left at 11 p.m. Someone looking at the harbor that night might have noticed that the Eldridge wasn’t there anymore and it did appear in Norfolk. It was back in Philadelphia harbor the next morning, which seems like an impossible feat: if you look at the map you’ll see that merchant ships would have taken two days to make the trip. They would have required pilots to go around the submarine nets, the mines and so on at the harbor entrances to the Atlantic. But the Navy used a special inland channel, the Chesapeake-Delaware Canal that bypassed all that. We made the trip in about six hours.” (Jacques Vallee, Anatomyof a Hoax, February 21, 2007)..
Keep Out at the Montauk Time-travel Research.
Still, there had been experiments aboard a U.S.S Timmerman with high-frequency generators producing corona discharges. Redfern does not have much information about the Corona Discharge experiment on the U.S.S Timmerman because there is not readily available information. The following was an alleged summation:
“The Navy performed another experiment on the USS Timmerman’s generating plant in the 1950’s. The experiment tried to obtain 1,000 Hz instead of the standard 400 Hz from the generator (Department of the Navy). It resulted in light discharges. These light discharges may have been witnessed by Carlos Miguel Allende and caused him to start writing letters to prominent men in the scientific community. The Navy believed that Allende mistook the experiment on the Timmerman for the Philadelphia Experiment.”
Dr. David Lewis Anderson had pointedly stated that decades ago he worked on time-travel concepts at the Edwards Air Force Base in California (p. 226).
Researcher Sharon K. Grossman (March 8, 2012) found Anderson to be an intriguing and mystifying person, who had somewhat disappeared – himself – lately. After making the circuit of radio and stage shows speaking of his long career in ‘invisibility research,’ Anderson has somehow become hard to find. Grossman researched into his credentials and he appeared to be everything he said he was, inclusive of many years of professional ventures. One of the companies he was associated with was the TTRC – a company looking into Advanced Time-Technology..
THEY’RE EVERYWHERE, THEY’RE EVERYWHERE!
Redfern tries to cover, at least fleetingly, every conceivable military hideout and spy facility, with a few exceptions. He discusses the suspicion that governments are also into weather modification and control, and he highlights HARRP (High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) at Gahom, Alaska as being involved in severe weather, including January 12, 2010, Haitian earthquake, global tsunamis and other destructive weather.
He is much diversified: Redfern even displays Project Horizon operations telling of hidden plans and visual sightings of possible governmental basses on the moon.
“We now know that 50 years ago the U.S. Army was quietly looking to construct just such a facility on the lunar surface via its ambitious Project Horizon plan,” says Redfern. “Karl Wolfe has disclosed truly astounding data related to a huge alien installation on the far side of the moon…Ingo Swann…a vast moon-based-facility…”
Erdmann could have added onto this riddle wrapped inside an enigma (there is so much that Redfern could have written about): a theory and story had developed that movie director Stanley Kubrick was hired, due to his vast technological skill and knowledge, to help simulate our Apollo moon landings; this would help disguise what we really did there and what equipment we really used on the moon. Kubrick’s ‘battle’ with the IlluminatiControllers can be glimpsed in the undertone and symbolism in his films, such as 2001: ASpaceOdyssey, BarryLyndon, Dr. Strangelove, and EyesWideShut, TheShining and others..
Stanley Kubrick and Movie Crew Preparing a 2001 Movie Scene
The work Room237, created by Rodney Ascher, Tim Kirk, Todd Hughes, and P. David Erieksole, was a film that goes into depth on the topic of the hidden meanings and personal travails of Kubrick’s The Shining..
The Clandestine “Inner Circle” Mansion – the Movie Eyes Wide Shut.
KEEP OUT AND THE EYES SHUT!
Through the revelations of his wife Christiane and other facts, it was suspected that a special movie set was held-over for filming by MGM in England. Kubrick felt he would then be accepted into a larger ‘inner circle’ of elitism, but instead, he was shunned. His meaculpa and confession was hidden in symbolism and hidden messages in various films, such as TheShining and EyesWide Shut. It was ironic that at the time he was producing 2001, Kubrick was also reading the book EyesWideShut..
The Inner Circle – William Harford Uninvited and at Risk (EyesWide Shut)
Kent Daniels Bentkowski, as well as other researchers, has examined the double entendre and hidden symbolism in EyesWideShut – 24 figures that lead to and cover for the Illuminati, the Iron Fist, the Velvet Glove, and the Synarchy: the Synarchist Group of Global Rulers. This scary group was traced back to the Occult Theocracy as far back as 1520 and even the Knights Templar in 1118. (Occult Theocracy, Edith Miller.)
“This is also a fitting metaphor for our times,” said Bentkowski, speaking of the Alice Through The Looking Glass and Down The Rabbit Hole metaphors outlined in the movie, as in the use of mirrors, “as many people seem to be fast asleep as to the evil that is being carried out in their names, and in the names of their children, and our nation: the down the Down The Rabbit Hole metaphor…the corruption of all levels of Law Enforcement and the Judiciary, where justice can indeed be purchased, if the price is right.”.

(Scene from Kubrick’s Movie Eyes Wide Shut)
Stanley Kubrick mysteriously died four days after delivering the final cut of EyesWideShut to Warner Brothers.
Inherent in the scenery are allusions to media propagandists like Conrad Brean and Stanley Motss in the movie WagtheDog, hired mogul-theatric-guns, that even competed with or work aligned to the CIA and the intelligence community to create politics as “much the art of media manipulation” (Mimi Lu, November 30, 2007). ‘‘The essential elements of propaganda in stirring up public sympathy for the government cause,” said Lu, “with enervating cynicism, it (the movie) satirizes the hypocrisy of the government and malleable media and the exasperatingly naïve public.”

The Magnificent Oz told Dorothy and her two companions in the Wizard of Oz to “pay no attention” to the “man behind the curtain.” We asked Annie Jacobsen to do just that. As a veteran news reporter and journalist, Jacobsen seems ideal to dissect formerly secretive information telling about the super-secret, and sometimes nonexistent, test sites in Nevada that allegedly sectored out of a large section of the hidden desert of about 4,500 acres, and eventually tagged AREA 51..
The Wizard of Oz Man Behind the Curtain.
Actually, the secret base encompassed areas 22, 25, and other mysterious areas such as 5 and 4, with the White Sands Proving Grounds and the Groom Lake Bomb Sites, also included – if not many others. (Area 51: An Uncensored History ofAmerica’s Top Secret Military Base, Annie Jacobsen, The Little, Brown and Company, Hachette Book Group, 237 Park Avenue, New York, N.Y. 10017, www.hachettebookgroup.com, May 2011, 523 pages).
BEHIND THE CURTAIN.
Jacobsen’s excursion begins with the Black Project Manhattan that gave us the first practicing atomic bomb that was used to destroy Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. She glides through the years, detailing the creation of an all-powerful Atomic Energy Commission, Project Nutmeg, Project Hood, Operation Sandstorm, Zebra, Greenhouse, Tall King, Elint, Project 57 – continuing into the creation of Project Oxcart, the espionage of the U-2 spy plane, and projects such as Skylark and Dragon Lady.
“It is from the Atomic Energy Act of 1946 that the concept ‘Born Classified’ came to be,” says Jacobsen, “(The Project) would be born classified and that even the president of the United States would not necessarily have a need-to-know about it.”.
Jacobsen details the subplot of the Nazi underground scientists comes to America, Operation Dragon Return and Operation Paperclip, the hunting down, surrender and incorporation of Hitler’s special Nazi scientists, and the eventually discovered Horton Brother’s “wingless, tailless, saucer-like craft,” the Horten X and the Horten 13 (that many say greatly resembled Kenneth Arnold’s June 1947 mystery aircraft spotted near Mt. Rainer, Washington). All blends of these technologies were run through the Office of Policy Coordination (OPC). It was suspected that the Russians had also gained Nazi technology.
Out of this World War II confluence came the U-2 spy plane (Project Aquatone) and the evolution of the CIA test-facility in Nevada, escalating into promised space projects such as a nuclear Mars spaceship called Project Orion and Project Nerva. Some researchers believed the project was secretly continued to the present day into a super-secret space “Navy.” These same investigators pointed to the extensive underground tunnel systems that allegedly are existent across America, as Jacobsen also points out.
But, as is inevitable with discussions of Area 51, the topic of “flying saucers” also come up surfacing in the topics of mysterious associations with UFOs at Area 51..
DO NOT MENTION.
“Jim Friedman remembers the first time he brought up the subject of UFOs with his EG&G supervisor at Area 51,” says Jacobsen, “…middle of the 1960s…’I heard through the rumor mill that one of the UFOs had gone to Wright-Pat and was then brought to a remote area of the test site; I heard it was in Area 22’…(the supervisor replied) ‘Jim, I don’t want to hear you mention anything like that, ever again, if you want to keep your job.’”
Jacobsen points to the Bob Lazar allegations of Reverse-engineered alien spacecraft, which sticks out as an incongruous sore-thumb oddity in her book, with no real explanation (more and more, the Lazar story appears to be a psychological plant), despite the fact that Jacobsen had been privy to a dearth of previously classified and secret Area 51 files under the Freedom Of Information Act. She demurely states that two lie-detector tests administered to him were inconclusive..
And then it gets more intimidating and suspicious: the Roswell UFO crash came to Area 51, but it was not from outer space – it was fromRussia. A reputable Area 51 scientist (she claims to have investigated his background and it is impeccable. Subsequently, he turns out to be Dr. Alfred O’Donnell, an 89-year-old veteran of Edgerton, Germeshausen and Green, Inc. [EG&G] who worked at Groom Lake in 1947, was an early member of the Manhattan Project and the Atomic Energy Commission) privately told her that Stalin invented and flew a “helicopter version” of the captured Nazi stealth craft the Horton Ho 229 (which had a swept-back appearance and may have been sighted by Kenneth Arnold as he flew near Mt. Rainer in 1947) to Roswell, manned by surgically altered mutant children invented by none other than the mad-Nazi scientist Josepf Mengele on a sojourn to Russia.
WAR OF THE WORLDS
The purpose was an elaborate psychological publicity stunt by Russian dictator Joseph Stalin (who had also been interested in creating an army of mutant gorilla-human soldiers; and Stalin had been very slighted by our securing and inventing the atomic weapons first); he wanted to scare the hell out of Americans, very much like the panic the radio broadcast by Orson Wells’ War Of The Worlds produced. This story has drawn its share of criticism..
Orson Welles’ October 30, 1938, Warofthe Worlds Radio Broadcast
T.D. Barnes, a former electronics radar and communications “road runner” at Area 51 in 1968 claimed the incident never happened. Dr. Melvin Morse, Md., said on June 15, 2011, that the genetic manipulation alleged was not possible now or in 1947 (Dr. Morse is a clinical associate professor of pediatrics at the University Of Washington, as well as a graduate of George Washington School Of Medicine, and he has worked in pediatrics at the University of San Francisco and also in pediatrics at the Seattle Children’s Hospital).
Auschwitz prisoner Alex Dekel said of Mengele: “I have never accepted the fact that Mengele himself believed he was doing serious work – not from the slipshod way he went about it.”.
THE ANGEL OF DEATH
Following Mengele’s escape, all of his records were destroyed. Those diaries and letters turned over by his family, while revealing his evil philosophy, gave no meaningful laboratory data. Files from his infamous C.A.N.D.L.E.S experiments on twins have been lost. The question remains: where did Mengele perform his Russian experiments; when did he do so in Russia; and how do you prove this happened?.
Josef Mengele (Center)
On January 27, 1945, Mengele was in a camp at Gross Rosen in lower Siberia, which was dissolved under the Russian advance. On May 3, he was at the Wehrmacht Medical Unit led by Otto Kahler, captured by the Soviets, and taken as a prisoner of war by Americans. He was released in June, 1945 and his papers show him as Fritz Hollmann, staying briefly in Rosenbaum, Bavaria as a farm hand from July, 1945 to May, 1949. Via Innsbruch, Austria and Genoa, Italy, he made his way to Buenos Aires, Argentina through generous donations and payments from his wealthy family and a mystery network called ‘Odessa.’
Mengele would probably be targeted by Stalin for Stalin’s ‘First Circle’ Gulag for scientist prisoners; nota privatelaboratory (Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago).
Also, if Stalin had a technologically advanced stealth craft – that may have been overflying America in early 1947 – Kenneth Arnold and a number of sightings of similar objects – would Stalin have not used this craft for much more than ”psychological tricks”? Further investigation is needed to resolve these questions. Was Alfred O’Donnell lying, deluded or confused?.
Radio program host George Knapp of the Coast To Coast program told his audience on August 22, 2011, 12:55 a.m. CST, that he had interviewed O’Donnell twenty years earlier and was told a different story by O’Donnell on Roswell. Knapp said he would not divulge the details until he spoke to O’Donnell once again. On December 19, 2011, at 1:47 a.m. CST, Knapp further commented that in that earlier interview with O’Donnell that O’Donnell made cryptic remarks regarding “aliens from ‘somewhere’ that spoke in a strange language.”
I can’t help feeling it somewhat of a sad ending and even anti-climactic to the glorious picture of Area 51 Jacobsen portrays throughout most of her book and Groom Lake’s drive to advance technology and national defense: and the climb to new highs in the Space Age.
The issue of the magazine has the headline, “Flying saucers: Russia’s secret weapon?” The story is “He fell among thieves” by Milton Lesser. This has the promotional line, “When this Martian crashed the Iron Curtain … He fell among thieves.”
The incidence of UFO sightings in the US in the 1950s was unbelievably high and this story puts forward a reason: Russia had captured a Martian who had helped them build flying saucers, and these were now being used to spy on the US.
About Universal Digest: Ed Smith and the creators of this website listened to many different people, worldwide, who displayed interests in more areas than just about UFO phenomena. Some stated they were interested in UFO’s and others would ask about information in both related and unrelated areas over many years, not just recent events. Therefore, work has ensued and is an ongoing process of providing a multi-subject oriented website to accommodate those varied interests.
As the site develops, comments are most welcome to help ‘tweak’ the various menus and subjects of interest in order to supply the readers and viewers the information they request. The purpose and direction of Universal Digest are not to bring just breaking news or fad articles to the public. It is more apt to state this site is bringing more relevant, poignant and credible information persons can read, view, and watch that covers many times, years, and eras of human history one may find not only enjoyable; it is educational, informative, and useful for all ages from around the world; the goal of Universal Digest is to publish in area of ufology, science, history, world, regional, and some local news and events; experiencer, telepathic and paranormal subject matter are also published.
It was the quiet little chirp of the wren somewhere outside the house that first caught his attention. Like some vague feeling pricking the top of his body hairs ever so lightly, the incessant chirp from that little brown feathery body perched on the tree limb outside the bedroom window kept infiltrating his mind.
Peaceful. Yes, it was very, very peaceful, restful, and gracious. He lay motionless underneath the linen sheet he used as a blanket. His face, a smooth lineless continence of tranquility, and his mind somewhere between the darkness of his dream-world and the dawning of the first rays of daylight beaming through his bedroom window and bathing him in a brilliant white.
A fly lazily buzzed to and fro about the man’s face. Like a miniature household servant come to wake its master, the fly landed on the man’s head. When it crawled from his head onto his arm skin, the man instantly perceived it was there. He squirmed beneath the sheet. The insect took to flight, circled about, and gently, very, very gently, landed near its previous landing spot, urging the master to arise.
This time the man stretched his arms, turning slowly about in the bed. He blinked for a moment, glancing out the window, realizing that it was time to once again start a daily routine. He momentarily closed his eyes, allowing the caressing sunshine to rest upon his features.
He was amused at the melodious singing of the little bird outside. He smiled. Then he lazily moved his legs to the edge of the bed, and like a mighty Zeus emerging out of the surface of the sea, he slowly vacated the bed, pushing himself like a bear just awaken from hibernation.
The housecoat felt warm and comforting about him, but the floor was ice cold, making him give out a sigh of relief as he put on his slippers. He pulled the strings to his robe tight, secure, and shuffled off into the kitchen; there he perked the coffee till short puffs of steam came out of the spout. Every now and then, a few drops would sputter out of the spout and dribble down into the flames below, making a hissing sound. From the range a warm radiance spread out into the kitchen in ever-widening ripples. The small old-fashioned clock hung over the hovel of the sink and pantry, and the sweeps of its stubbly pendulum seemed to say ‘hello, hello.’
It took some effort to control his memory of those frightening nights in the dark bedroom with no sound, no children noise, no words, just the flashbacks of the divorce courtroom and the horrid masquerade of reality that came true before his eyes when the so-called legal system turned black into white and the memories of brighter days into dank dark desertion. Many following nights he fought the dysgeusia and copper taste of fear and flight anxiety attacks until those more stable moments when they would disappear now and then. This morning seemed to be one of those.
Next came the sizzling beacon and the crackle of the frying breakfast sausage, slowly, slowly making the morning whole as bits of reality, as churning mechanisms seen in household appliances, flashes of electricity through the grey matter of the human brain, all going into operation as one coordinated, smooth picture. He thoughtfully meanders through his breakfast.
Socks; warm; skin-fitting; the latest pair bought. New trousers; freshly creased. A leather belt with sleek sheen; followed by a white shirt; high collar to cover his long neck. Soon followed were pearl cuff-links; the tie; a nice charcoal color to match his pants. No wrinkles in pants: new.
Like a sculptor of marble, his personal appearance began to take shape. Each movement of his hand brought with it a snug packing of the clay in the imaginary statue. Shirt tail whipped in, straight and even; tie-knot, tight and in place. His short hair groomed and styled.
The man tapped the top of his dresser to show pride in his creation, another accomplishment in the early morning serenade of awakening.
Click, clack, click, clack, click, clack: the rhythm of someone’s shoe taps could be heard faintly outside in their hurried walk down the sidewalk. Too industrious, thought the man, but still permissible; the announcer on the radio spoke in serene, low monosyllables; short, musical statements in a base voice; evenly pronounced and not harsh. The announcer was saying that it was going to be a beautiful autumn day, and the temperatures might reach a pleasant 75-80 degrees this Halloween. Don’t put away all your summer clothes, the announcer is saying; you might want to wear them still today. The man smiled to himself and nodded in agreement. Let’s see, wallet? Money? Credit cards? Notebook? Bus pass? Handkerchief in pocket? All here.
The early morning sunlight covered the kitchen as if the radiance were bathing the room in a baptism of rejuvenation. The strong aroma of fresh coffee intermingled with the brisk, mystic smell of men’s cologne, and he further imagines a bathed lady that equally had sensually dabbed her body with perfume. He grabbed his well-blocked hat out of the closet, sitting it on his head: no, he suddenly decides, he would not wear it today. He finally reached for the knob of the front door and summoned his courage to leave his day-dream environment behind. It was a Halloween holiday and one that he hoped would not be matched.
Bright morning sunlight still shone through the door Venetian blinds reminding him of similar recollections of himself as a little boy playing with neighbor children on sun coated sidewalks back on Castleman Avenue.
Opening the front door, he is slightly taken aback by the heavy drone of a big truck that seemed to emerge out of nowhere, blocking his view of his direct neighborhood. Its big red letters seemed to immobilize him until the heavy vibration of the truck was gone.
The man collected his thoughts, shifting his chin as to try to straighten his collar, dislocated by the sudden appearance of the truck. Instead, he fidgeted the knot of his tie with his fingers; smoothed his coat along its sides. As he headed for the sidewalk, he briefly glanced back to his house, bathed in the golden hues of the morning sunlight. A sparrow landed on the steps before him, twisting its head side to side, ogling the oncoming giant beside him. Then it darted away, blended into the glare of the sun.
At the bus stop he tasted the fresh, crisp air with its underbelly of autumn decay. The acrid smell of the chemicals at a nearby paint factory seemed disjointed from the smell of the close evergreen shrubbery. The bus stop was attended by two talkative ladies, both projecting their respective, strong perfumes. They wait for the bus too, he thought to himself; such staunch, middle-class ladies; the salt of the traditional America; Conservatives dressed in their placid best; such a no-nonsense color for an overcoat; PTA, Ladies’ Solidarity, and Bible-reading grandmothers. See how they chatter, gossip, the man thought to himself, tending to the world of everyday events?
“That’s what she told me, yes indeed…” The one lady spoke energetically.
The bus is coming. The doors hiss open.
“I’ll be, Marriene, she didn’t?” the other exclaims as they climb aboard.
“Yes, yes she did…thebitch!”
“No,” the man thinks, and slumps his head to look at their shoes, “I didn’t hear that remark on this quiet morning of autumn.” There is a lullaby of barking dogs and teenage laughter in the background. No, he thinks to himself, it was not our all-American grandmothers who said that.
As the door hissed shut, the voices of the two quarreling grade school kids fighting over a bicycle could be heard on the steps of the nearby church.
“Get your god-damned foot off the peddle or I’ll break your god-damned, son-of-a bitch….”
The back seat of the bus is warm, almost hot from the rays of the sun. He nestles in the bough as if a cold bird into its nest. He glances out the heavily smudged window, looking beyond the lipstick smears and obscenities drawn there sometime last night. He blinks hard, pretending that it is only a momentary obstruction. He can see the expressions on the motorists below the window, which is all that matters to him.
When the bus reached Elm Street at the intersection of Genevieve, he had counted some twenty ‘families’ driving in autos. He instinctively knew they were families because of the three or four children between the back and front seats. Mom sat almost statuesque by her “daddy” at the wheel: he, holding a cigarette so very authoritatively in his fingers, or her placing one hand on her husband’s knee, as if to signify her claim to ownership. Sometimes, the pose would change from car to car, and when it was a car that carried adolescent boys and girls, the scene sometimes changed dramatically; the teenagers would hug tightly, entwining their limbs as if to squeeze every drop of intimacy into each other. Her hair would lie on his shoulder; another’s hair would lie on his chest. But when he saw nothing but a blanket of smooth, flowing velvet, the strains of which made a shining blanket across the boy’s lap, his face went flush, and then red. He turns his gaze quickly away from the window, his pulse racing higher.
At the intersection of Sydney and Spring the bus jerked to a stop. Four fuzzy-headed teenagers bang at the door, rudely with impact, not waiting for the driver to release the door hydraulic-pressure. The man noticed the bus-driver’s face was mysteriously nonplussed and emotionless to the outburst.
“Thanks Pop!” said the tallest boy; he had to bend his neck to keep from scraping his head on the bus ceiling. All but one paid their fares; the last stood momentarily defiant before the driver, his fists clenched straight down to his sides. Not a word said, just a stone-cold stare between the two. Without paying his fare, the shortest of the four swaggered his way back through the aisle, much like a bully burst through the saloon-house door. The four arranged themselves along two larger side-seats; they extended their legs out into the aisle, punching each other with furious deviltry, revealing gaping holes in the sides of their jeans. Squeals of hysterical laughter riveted the bus, but no one looked except the man who manufactured a prolonged gaze that eventually contracted a wall of hateful wonderment from the gang of boys.
“Anything wrong with you, Pop?” the tallest queried.
The man just gazed on. Slowly, oh so slowly, his lips moved in a quiver. “No,” he spoke softly, “no,” he said again even softer. He turned back to the window, gazing on the churning smoke from a chemical factory’s chimney. He tries to mentally close his ears to their obscenities; instead, he concentrates on those long, thick vapors that churned in and around themselves as they circled upwards, higher and higher. He will keep his gaze on this until the factory falls from his range of vision, hoping that peace and tranquility will be restored and this invasion of civility would be over.
The crowd builds on the bus as they near the downtown area; so filled that the man can barely see the “No Smoking” sign towards the front of the bus. It has become laden with the cigarette smoke from unconcerned passengers. The aisle has become jammed with men, women, and children, each holding tightly on some nearby artifact, such as a pocket of a mother’s coat, or the sweat-lubricated chrome seat handle.
Splat! Splat! Splat! Three shaggy-haired grade schoolers race out towards the middle of the street, bogging down traffic which nearly brought about their injury: from their dirt-stained hands are thrown three MacDonald’s restaurant hamburger sandwiches. The guts of these missiles ooze down the glass panes in a sickening avalanche of garbage___as sickening as the vulgar retorts off the lips of the three boys rambling back to the curb. Motorists impatiently honk at them. The youths signal obscenities at them and rush off laughing wildly and indifferent. No one looks, other than the drivers who nearly hit them; everyone seems unconcerned.
The bus begins to stop and start in aggravating jerks, descending deeper into the city traffic. The heights of buildings begin to grow taller as the bus creeps deeper into the interior of the city metropolitan jungle. Peculiar taps and nudges are felt by the man as the mass of humanity closes upon him. The rock-like bulge in the pocket of a grey-haired, well-groomed man next to him is suddenly removed by that man, revealing itself as a bottle of Johnny Walker whiskey. He watches as the imbiber caresses the bottle containing the putrid-smelling liquid to his quivering lips, small drops travel down his chin and dangle from his cracks in his face. No one stares at the swigged performance and the bottle is quickly replaced unconcerned back in a coat pocket.
The man begins to feel suffocated. He sees his destination two stoplights away. Suddenly the surroundings don’t seem the same. It looks peculiar, almost as if a scene in a dream where quasi-shapes and half-familiar sights appear. But its strangeness might seem like some sort of ‘home,’ only if he could safely make his way through the limbs, human bosoms, and torsos to the exit.
Slowly he begins to nudge his way through the “meat factory,” and he begins to visualize racks of butchered meat hanging from hooks. Bad breath followed next by a sweet candy-smelling perfume. The smell of mothballs from a jacket recently removed from summer hibernation. He steps on someone’s shoe; he gets cursed. A newspaper flares up into his face as a pedestrian turns a page during the person’s transit-reading.
The plunging, hissing sound of the air compression of the door appears as a welcoming gateway into cool, fresh air. He bounds out into a conveyor of sidewalk pedestrians that, even here, nudge and shuffle him; but he doesn’t mind as he hopes he has obtained new freedom.
He bustles through the revolving door, shoulder to shoulder with customers, into a drone of sounds, clinking coffee cups, and incessant monkey-like chatter of the crowd. The smell of the latest perfumes, colognes, and sweet milk chocolate are from the nearby counters. Perfumes that drip off of dark, lovely skins that zip by in micro-mini-skirts and colorful pantsuits; meaty scents that one could almost be tempted to bite into.
Towards the middle of the department store floor he is held back by a swarm of people gushing from the escalator. They branch off in all directions, leaving him huddled in one spot. He timidly walks towards the ‘up’ escalator. “Can’t do it,” he sneers at himself, feeling the latest pangs of motion sickness from the gasoline smells that escorted his bus ride. He couldn’t stand that fight at the top of the escalator steps. Resigning himself to the task of getting more fresh air, he wipes the perspiration of his forehead and bounds through the crowd to the farthest exit.
“What the hell?” indignantly queries a husky man who attempted to crowd the same revolving door with the man, who, in the growing depths of nausea, smiles back at him in apology, allowing the husky person to command the door. The man waits patiently until no one wants to use the portal, then he ventures outside.
“Daddy, daddy, be so good to me,” blurts the large Walkman radio swinging from the hip of a Negro with shinning leather boots and a large sombrero hat. “Baby! Baby, do it to me now! Baby…..”
“Chick, com’on, doll, cause you the biggest love bun in the block, dat why,” giggles a sleek, sensuous Negress secured lustfully to her boy-friend’s arm. Metallic loops dangle from earlobes beneath bleached, blonde hair; her buttocks brazenly protrude from the rim of her skin-tight red ‘hot pants.’ On they stumble – “Daddy, you won’t make a move on me, doll….”
“Gum? Anybody buy gum?” churns the words from a twisted mouth of a Paraparetic, cane in hand, tin cup in the other, limping along at a snail’s pace. “Gum?” he pleads to around him careening by him in a river of flesh, “Want to buy some gum?” He shakes the battered tin cup, the coins forlornly jangle. One man instantly searches his pocket for loose change. The crippled man nears him, only a few feet away, “Gum?” “Here you are,” the pedestrian reassures the cripple, reaching for the tin cup.
Down the cripple goes! The earth turns about him and he suddenly finds himself being scuffled by boots, shoes, and sandal-ed and nearly bare feet. Someone leaps over him as the crowd momentarily rearranges itself to make room. A blur of bodies – one, two, three young girls in hipster garb race down the street into the maze of humanity onto the next block. A few feet away from the girls moving on in express, the cripple churns his neck about, searching the passing crowd, looking for a helping hand. His cup with money is now a lost companion. He is unable to say anything but the words he has memorized, drilled, and forced him to learn in month over months of repetition: “Gum?” He extends his hand pleadingly to the astonished and indifferent people that pass on by. The cripple slowly, painfully, arches his back and uses the cane to resurrect an upright stance. The atmosphere about the par paretic becomes a cubicle of woman’s nylon against nylon and feminine deodorant, pierced by cigar smoke blown in his face.
“Move on! Move on, damn ya!” A group of jelly-bellied conventioneers have flanked the sidewalk, almost arm in arm, as if the front line of an infantry sweeping the battlefield. Racing backwards in faltering steps, the cripple extends one hand over his head, waving it to keep balance and also seeking Samaritan assistance, only to find him in the animal-like huddle at the “No walk” sign at the corner.
The sweet and putrid smells of perfumes and after-shave fragrances cascade over our traveler, as he finds himself hurdled into the mass of flesh, clothing, and the gut of the mob. Perspiration begins to trickle down his cheek, his nose itches from the threads of sprayed hair belonging to a fat, chunky female shadowing him. If only he could turn around and attempt to see the fate of the crippled man.
“Go!” instructs a skinny boy, knees black with dirt glaring below the rim of his stained shorts. The boy’s hair flops about his eyes like the mane of a St. Bernard dog. He drags his mother by the hand into the crowd of street-crossing pedestrians unfortunately blocked by a negro boy and white girl standing immobile in the middle of the traffic: the boy is passionately kissing the girl, holding her back into the cradle of his arm, and with the other fondles her breasts, and then, in snake-like fashion, rushes his hand under her short-shorts seeking the crease in your buttocks. No one stares; no one looks. They gush around the two like foaming water around jagged rocks in the middle of racing water in a stream.
The man is carried along, stumbling; stepping on feet, careening through ‘out-flung’ newspaper pages, till he locates the curb and with a heave, lifts him onto the sidewalk.
He has come to rest near a restaurant; he presses his radiant face on the cold panes of air-conditioned glass and closes his eyes to decide as to if he should go inside and find a seat. The smell of gasoline has found him again, like a phantom from bus to sidewalk, sidewalk to sidewalk, and like a developing nightmare, nausea is created in his stomach. He notices a scratch on his hand and he reaches into his pocket fumbling for a handkerchief and he dabs his wound.
“Get your Raw World News here!” shouts a tall, thin boy, his hair draped over his head and shoulders from the rank humidity as if someone poured a bucket of water on it, and continued to soak every strand, progressing down his cloths as if to pull them to his feet. The man expected to see this happen but was suddenly alarmed to see the boy’s bare feet. Instead, the boy’s clothes stubbornly hung on to him as he shouts, “Raw World News, here. The only original people’s militant-pagan review in the city! Raw World, here! Raw World!”
A lady with two cardboard boxes under each arm and a bag lodged underneath her chin, stops to examine the front page of the newspaper: it is a photograph of Lillian Swan, number one militant libertine giving a close-up of her middle finger extended upward in protest; the headline reads: “Country Must Change, or Else Die!”
The lady wants to maneuver herself so she can turn the page of the newspaper, but –wham! – knocked from her under the barrage of street-people, the swarm carries her parcels, being kicked heedlessly, down the sidewalk, some people divided in attention by a commotion back up the street where the Paraparetic had been knocked down, others intent on seeing the colored boy and white girl, now engaged in actual fondling on the corner of the street, both laying prostrate to one side of the nearby trash container as a ring of people jealously guard their sensuous privacy.
“Hey! My boxes!” shouts the lady, trying to fight into the swarm. “Out of the way, damn it! My boxes! Oh!”
Pressed into this incongruous activity, the man slides nervously along the cold glass storefront till he meets the end of the building. The side of his face is caressed by a gentle breeze flowing out of the nearby alley across from him and just a few feet away.
“Take it, damn it! Take my purse!” cries a whimpering voice from a mascara-streaked face of an old whore held at gunpoint. The man leans to one side to get a better view. He barfs slightly, swallowing back the vomit as he fights the sickness of carbon monoxide poisoning. From the record shop across the street, through its overhead loudspeakers, booms the beginning of Schubert’s Symphony No. 8, the Unfinished Symphony.
“Here! Take it!” The whore holds out a fist of money and jewels that drip from the sides of her hand. Her watered eyes plead to the snub-nosed revolver held directly at her face. “Oh, God! Take it!”
Why no one investigates the alley, the man wonders as Schubert’s symphony progresses into the allegromoderato. He notices the prostitute staggers towards the gunman, moaning, “…no, no….”
The symphony hits a peak as everyone crossing the alley stops and stares as if an unfortunate ‘intrusion’ was forced upon them. And like cattle turned out of a gate, they stampede into the narrow passageway. Symphony No. 8 begins its slow dirge, its whining andanteconmoto, and as if synchronized with the pulse of actions comes the sirens of police cars that burst around the street corner: revolving lights flashing, brakes squealing, as squad cars nearly careen into the middle of the people in the alley. The people dash to the sides of the buildings to keep from being hit. The crowd immediately closes back in about the officers slinking out of their cars and into the murder scene.
The man barfs again. He realizes he must move to a clearing near the bus stop area. He staggers to the bus sign, leans his head on a cold metal pole and shuts his eyes as he focuses on nothing but the low dirge of Schubert’s No. 8. “Bus, come on, please, come on!” he begs inwardly. “I want to go back home,” he mumbles to him, “back, back home.”
Hiss! As if by his direct command, a miracle, the smell of bus-rubber surprises him, and the bus doors open before his face. Pushing, lunging people force him up the steps, the driver, oblivious that the man did not attempt to show his pass as he was nearly knocked to the floor. The man quickly grabs a chrome seat handle and pulls himself into a nearby seat of the bus. Thankfully, he lodges his head on the pane-seal of an open window that someone created despite the air-conditioning. Schubert has gone into his dramatic allegroconbrio. Once again, a police officer squad car careens around another corner. The bus driver impatiently honks for the crowded street to clear so he can be on his way. The bus inches a few feet….stops….inches a few more….stops….to ward off his stomach sickness, the man holds his handkerchief over his mouth. “I must concentrate!” he pleads to himself. “Concentrate on that glorious ending of the 8th, that allegroconbrio.”.

“Out of the way, you bastards!” commands the bus driver, his voice barely discernible in the zombie-like rows of people compressing the aisle of the bus. Finally, the jerks of the bus combine into longer, smoother flows, lasting at least the length of a block. “Oh, the pain!” The insufferable ache in the pit of the man’s stomach fights an epitome battle against a world of the intertwined smells of perfume, cigar smoke, gasoline fumes, bubble gun and whiskey breath. “Move! Please, move bus!”
Bam! Bam! Bam! The man again visualizes the smoking tip of the revolver in the murder scene, and that blank stare that appeared on the prostitute’s face, her pupils suddenly becoming dilated, and her mouth suddenly twisted and contorted. The contents in her hand dripping out onto the ground, much like the spreading blood from her stomach.
At Spruce and Murdoc, the man opened his eyes and peered out the window to discern a row of broken-down tenements, the small front yards with foot-high weeds and grass and a barely visible walkway. In front of the paintless fence were two toddlers, caked with mud and crying profusely. Once again, the man laid his head on the sill of the window, feeling the violent vibrations of the bus through his skull; rough, yet comforting enough by providing some distraction to his physical displeasure.
Broadway and Juniata: large beads of sweat drip down his check. He dabs them gently with his handkerchief. “Just a few more minutes,” he assures himself.
Ahead, he sees his bus stop creeping up. Painfully, he lifts himself up and pushes forward around a rather obese woman who looks at him rather amusingly. When the bus jerks to a stop, the man practically falls out of the door, but catches a low tree limb to steady him.
After dodging the reckless, perusing traffic, he glances over to the nearby church steps, only to see the broken, bent body of the bicycle the two boys had argued over earlier. In the distance, he could hear the ferocious barking of his next-door neighbor’s dog. Only minutes away; he prays for strength.
Agitated, he jabs the key into his front-door lock; drops of perspiration fall upon his fist, only to be shaken off by the tremble of his hand. The door crashes back against the vestibule wall as the man feverishly staggers into the kitchen, slips to his knees, but stands once again and staggers to the bathroom.
For a moment, it was as if the explosion of the revolver had also become the pounding of the divorce court judge’s gavel: Bam! Bam! Bam! He remembers the firing of the revolver again to the back-ground music of Schubert’s Unfinished 8th, crescendo to a loud ending: he falls before the commode and lets out a heavy heave of vomit into the bowl.
As an accessory to this bizarre symphony, comes the very real chirp of a wren outside the bathroom window, not unlike the one that the man began his morning with:
The Grand Quantum Being is aware of this man’s events, and the Spark Streaming of the Being’s grandiose Mind, beyond any Positronic Computer, greater than any Quantum Algorithm, that Mind knew for eons the next stage of atomic arrangement that will take place in this man’s life. He constantly told men and humankind that they had ‘freedom,’ but it was a lie! That life will continue instantaneously, more keenly scrutinized as microbes in water would be by some ethereal microscope, hiding and masked in some infinite complacency, behind the shadows of time, across the gulfs of space, beyond the blending of colors, vibrations, any singing of the Strings, any Logic Gates, as it was performed in the beginning (and ever will be) since It called Itself the “The Word.”

“Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know.

But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know.”Statement by Donald Rumsfeld, February, 2002, press briefing on the instability of Afghanistan.
This tome is a precursor to Stanley’s later book on UFOs flying over or inducted into the United States D.C. Capitol; the book chronologies fly-overs of the Prohibitedand RestrictedAirDefense IdentificationZone (ADIZ), Flight Restricted Zone (FRZ) and P56 – an area with multiple accounts from 2006 and as far back as 1850.

INCURSIONS OVER WASHINGTON
Stanley cited the National Capitol Region Coordination Center (NCRCC) in Herndon, Virginia, represented by the Department of Defense, the FAA, the Secret Service Customs and Border Protection, The Transportation Security Administration, as well as the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Capitol Police, and the Domestic Event Network (DEN) (p. 371): from January 27, 2003 to July 17, 2005, there were 3,495air spaceincursions with 655 attempted aircraft intercepts.
The book is peppered with little known tales of UFO activity associated with the Washington capitol, such as the late Colonel Jesse Marcel, Jr.’s 1991 clandestine meeting at the Capitol sub-basement with an unnamed official who said that the Roswell UFO crash incident was completelytrue.
The Capitol area has had a long history of stories of paranormal occurrences, such as the 20-year-old man who ran into the Capitol building “being chased by the devil” (Later deduced to be a UFO).

INTERVIEWS WITH THE MATRIX
Pages 24 through 200 covers interviews with noted Ufologists, though not much debunking or critical analysis is offered.
Particularly interesting to this writer was David Adair’s story about being taken to Area 51 to examine a crashed UFO that appeared to be almostorganicoramoeba–like in operation. Adair’s connection was his scientific interest in building rockets in the late 1960s. Not all comments from researchers indicated that Adair is being completely truthful; some were suspicious and accused him of being a skilled and pathological liar..
Adair’s connection to the UFOs and Area 51 was his scientific interest in building rockets in the late 1960s. Congressman John Ash brook helped fund Adair’s experiments with “second generation fusion rockets,” later gaining the interest of General Curtis Lemay, and eventually becoming a disciple of Dr. Steven Greer’s Disclosure Project..
”Wow! I’m surprised this guy hasn’t made the Hoax list here. This guy is one weird story. Just type ‘David Adair’ into YouTube searches from some very fun stories from a ‘rocket scientist,’” said ‘Inconceivable’ on May 15, 2008, Thursday, 4:22 a.m. “He’s apparently been around for a while and has some kind of track record in aeronautics though I don’t know if any of that child prodigy news checks out. I just saw his stuff on YouTube for the first time yesterday. Apparently Dr. Greer interviewed him for the Disclosure Project a few years back but even he must have thought Adair was over the top. I just finished reading the Greer’s Disclosure Project and Adair’s story is not in there.”
“If you Google his name it’s hard to find any debunking investigation of his claims. Incredible claims combined with that ‘I’m just a humble engineer with ‘only the facts face.’ It’s hard to beat that combination; clever,” ‘Inconceivable’ continued. “Ufology today is a minefield of con-artists, hoaxers, disinformers, the misinformed, the gullible and even the mentally ill. But you have to admit, it’s great entertainment!”
TRIP TO AREA 51
It was Adair’s prototype fusion rocket crash that provided him with a trip to Area 51 where he allegedly observed a crashed UFO that had a spooky “brain–machine–interface”; its “parts” acted almost organically symbiotic: Adair said he was taken into the belly of a captured alien spacecraft.
Opinions vary as to the reality of Adair’s claims. ‘Oli’ commented on September 30, 2005, “….is the guy deliberately lying or does he believe his own bullshit, and why does the reporter take him at face value? The numbers quoted are outlandish, and everything he says is accepted as gospel. Surely, this sort of crap doesn’t help anyone’s case? Or, are pro-UFO fans ingeniously willing to take anything at all provided it supports their beliefs?”
‘Oli’ pointed out that Adair has suspicious math in a few instances. How do you calculate 8,759 mph in “about 4.6 seconds”? Would “carbonite” withstand the G-loads in acceleration? “Why do you need to create a ‘synthetic black hole’ for a fusion engine, asked ‘Oli,’ “a sufficiently strong magnetic field (is all that is required).”
On September 17, 2006, “Phlogistician” stated he couldn’t locate any “fusion rockets” displayed at any Science Fairs..
In the middle of his adventure, Adair also had the opportunity of meeting Dr. Arthur Rudolph, the Nazi Gestapo agent during the building of the V-2 rockets and later the creation of Operation Paperclip rescues into America. Through his demonstrations of his rocket technology, Adair was taken to Area 51 on June 20, 1971..
Dr. Arthur Rudolph .
Rudolph was a realNazicharacter in the analogs of the German Gestapo, culminating in Operations Overcast and Paperclip. Germar Rudolf documents Rudolph’s management of the Apollo Moon Landing program at Huntsville, Alabama (Gestapo USA). Operation Paperclip, inspired by Allen Dulles and approved by Harry Truman, was to bring 1,000 Nazi scientists into the United States. The CIA created the CapitalInternationalAirways in 1947 so they could avoid custom inspections and background checks. Some clandestine agents “were building the new CIA out of some very interesting back-stage fragments of the German war machine.”
However, this knowledge is available to anyone who cared to do research – even Adair could have found it and incorporated it into his story. Adair, however, insisted he was actually there!
Entered crop circles and Adair’s belief they contain “complex, fractal, energy patterns.” His attachment to crop circles may be the weakestlink in his substantiation as it has long been suspected by myself and other researchers that a body of sophisticated hoaxers, for the main part (not so sophisticated in others), create many of the circles – some are even in competition and offermoney to farmers to accompany the fraud. Unfortunately, Adair seemed too friendly to what appears a tainted topic, a suspicious association. Crop circles may be the intersection where hoax, religious belief, and science blend into a “flyingsaucertheology.”
Crop Circle Makers Rod Dickinson and John Lundberg.
Crop circle designs, said Amis, are from standard methods of Euclidean geometry using no-graduated rulers and compasses. Also, no advanced mathematical figures have been found at Nazca, for instance, and some crop circle patterns are “incomplete.”
Creative Commons spoke of a group called The Circle Makers who were involved in commercial competition – such as the prize awarded by the Arthur Koestler Foundation and PM Magazine. Some companies paid well for their creations (Jones, 2009, Guardian.co.uk).
Gabor Takacs, Robert Dalles, Matthew Williams are a few who had been arrested. Hoaxers have been caught (2004, Netherlands, Margyr and Roodenburg, Reframing Dutch Culture, pp. 143-145).
The July 28, 1999 Avebury Stone Circle was heralded by UFO researchers Linda- Moulton-Howe and Whitley Strieber as “BEST PROOF.” The circle was disproved with a confession by Team Satan circle-makers that were commissioned by the Daily Mail. Seven people created the circle between 11:00 p.m. and 4:30 a.m. They were witnessed by reporters and photographers from the Daily Mail..

Both Adair and our government were feeding off the UFO phenomena and experimenting, says Stanley, with “electromagnetic fusion containment systems.”
AIRSHIPS, NAZI UFOS, AND WALT DISNEY
Stanley equally explores scientific claims of John Searl, Nassim Haramein and journalist Philip Krapf. While interesting, their stories can’t be ‘finalized’ and Stanley’s portrayals are not critical or truly penetrating analysis. Krapf’s “Verdants” seem just more of the growing class of “UFOreligio–cultists” that have arisen in the UFO arena.
Stanley devotes quite a bit of space to early sightings with several 1890 “airship” cases. Another period he focuses upon is the 1930s, several sightings being of “triangular” crafts. June 1, 1930 was a typical sighting at Franklin, New York.
An origin of NAZI-Germany knowledge of aliencraft came from capture of a craft in 1937 in the town of Czernica. Scientists Wehner Von Braun, Herman Goring, Max Von Laue, Otto Hahn, and Werner Heisenberg began Nazi incursions into their own aircraft inventions..
Depiction of the 1937 Czernica UFO Crash
One airship/cow kidnapping case Stanley uses is actually a tale from a “Liars’ Club”: Mark Cashman documented the tale of April 1, 1897, wherein Le Roy Hamilton and cohorts were signers of the aforementioned affidavit, an organization of ‘tall-tales.’ This story unfortunately keeps resurfacing to the detriment of true and honest claims of UFOs.
Retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Wendle Steven spoke of a March 19, 1995 Walt Disney UFO documentary that quoted Disney Chief Executive Officer Michael Eisner on the reality of UFOs as space visitors:
“For governments determined to maintain their authority, extraterrestrial contact is pure dynamite,” stated Eisner. On April 19, 1995, Dr. Seth Shostak of the Seti Institute took issue with the content of the Disney feature: “….imagination alone should not be sold as science, especially when science is every bit as interesting as the fantasy.…you should at least temper your skewed presentation of contact with cosmic inhabitants by mentioning the scientific attempts….in matters of discovery nothing rivals the power of fact.”.

That the formation made by Dickinson and Co. is an excellent, if imperfect, work of art was acknowledged (despite the crude representation of a Mandelbrot Set in the center). Despite many poor hoaxes each year this one was by far the best man-made effort at that time in the early 2000s..

A somewhat handsomely packaged chronology of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) over the District of Columbia’s Prohibited Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ), these are violations of the P-56A airspace restriction of the controlled capital area. The National Capitol Region Command Center (NCRCC) statistics averaged these violations about four a day. Government aircraft intercepts averaged five times a week (p. 275).
Many intruders did not appear to be conventional aircraft.
(Covert Encounters in Washington D.C., Robert M. Stanley, Unicus Press, Providence, Rhode Island, 2011, 417 pages. $28.00. www.unicusmagazine.com.)
The penalties for these violations are codes of Federal Regulations: 14 CFR Part 99: “….to enter US airspace, without inducing the scrambling of fighter interceptors, these rules must be complied with and followed.” A Fact Sheet in regards to Prohibited Area 56 states: “Failure to follow these procedures may result in interception by military aircraft and/or use of force. This applies to all aircraft within the ADIZ, including Department Of Defense, law enforcement and Operating Aeromedical Operations.”
Heavy Fines and Detention
P-56A Restricted Air Space
Wendelle Stevens was a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Air Corps and a flight test pilot at Kelly Field, as well as Technical Specialist operating hi-tech, data–surveillance equipment on B-29s in Project Ptarmigan. He tells his tale of accidentally flying through the edge of the Restricted Zone:
“Especially since the airspace over Washington, D.C., is either restricted or prohibited: nothing is allowed to fly through there without permission. One day, while piloting an aircraft, I cut the corner on a restricted area like that, and I was ordered to land at a nearby military base. They took me in and checked my airplane all over thoroughly…They really grilled me for cutting through the corner of that restricted air space. They knew immediately when I had crossed over the line. They knew exactly which airplane I was and called me on the radio by my tail number and ordered me to land…”
“I eventually got out of the $10,000 fine by protesting that I couldn’t afford it on my pilot’s salary…I got a letter from the Comptroller General stating that it was costing them more to process my check than they were getting, so they told me to cease sending any more checks.”
The Capitol Under Attack
The book goes as early as 1850 to begin its search of Washington D.C. sightings. Rather than decrease in violations of the P-56A, UFOs appear to increase over the prohibited area, with a definite spike in 2010. The only other similar spike was in 1952, the year of the famous July 26, 1952 ‘invasion’ and attempted intercept by military jets.
“According to public documents, there were more than 90 known underground military/government bases surrounding D.C.,” says Stanley. “Allegedly, these are connected by high-speed rail systems and are extremely well-guarded, actively tracking the maneuvers of UFOs.”
Tunnel System Under the Capitol
Many of the reports and cases Stanley talks about are anecdotal – they appear to be honest accounts – reports of UFOs, but one can’t be sure how well-investigated they were originally. Some are quite fantastic; some more fantastic than others..
On July 26, 1952, a piece of a UFO was retrieved from an aerial attack on a UFO over Washington, D.C. It was discovered to contain magnesiumorthosilicate and thousands of 15 micron spheres (p. 41). In March, 2010, a flying “septeloid’ or ‘‘cephalopied’ (allegedly from the star system Delta Pavonis) was seen flying over D.C., also secretly infiltrating our government: the 7602nd Air Intelligence Wing at Fort Belvoir was said to be involved (pp. 288-290).
On January 1, 2000, during America’s Millennium celebration at the National Mall, eight or more triangular, cylindrical and blimp-like objects careened and zipped before thousands, Stanley tells us, including police. Some objects swooped within touching distance. One witness counted about 20 triangle-shaped craft flying in mass like a “group of gnats’’ moving “quick and nimble.” A “mystery man” in a business suit, speaking mysteriously about the UFOs, was seen wandering through the crowd (pp. 150-161).
Group of Pulsing White Spheres Over Capitol.
Chevron-shaped, boomerang-shaped, triangular-shaped, “gigantic rectangular wing”-shaped UFOs are often seen over D.C. (July 22, 2003, December 8, 2004, March 8, 2004, March 9, 2005, June 14, 2005). Many UFOs are tracedonradar (July 27, 1952). Most were described as disk-shaped, oval, globular, with colorful, flashing lights, some moving at erratic and fantastic speeds. Some appeared to “shape-shift” (July 21, 2002).,
UFOs Over Capitol.
Even More Bizarre
The stories of UFOnauts being held in storage beneath the Capitol are equally intriguing. One such case was that of Peace Prize Winner and professional statesman Cordell Hull who confessed to his cousins the supposed hidden bodies and craft of aliens under the capitol.
The book branches out into paranormal cases of the bizarre in the area of the Capitol, such as the 1949 demon possession case, and the “demon cat” which stalked the D.C. area since 1862. The 1949 demon possession case seems somewhat askew to UFOs, except to mention that certain UFO “hot spots” are also host to multipleparanormal events. These are not always obvious during first investigations.
Stanley quotes extensively from the personal diary of the late Colonel Philip Corso, whom, unlike the popular Bill Birnes’ Day after Roswell, reveals what appear to be revelations of intimate contact of our government with UFOnauts. This is extended into what Stanley calls “the Satanic Underground” and the ‘Luciferians” of Washington—entailing a list of participants such as Robert McNamara (“Temple of Understanding”), Satanist Lieutenant Colonel Michael Aquino (“Satanic Temple of Set”)..
A Meeting at the Bohemian Grove
Victims Kathy O’Brien and Paul Bonacci testified that statesmen Richard Byrd, Dick Thomburgh, Jim Trificent, Presidents Ronald Reagan, George W. Busch and others were celebrates of Satanism at various times and places (pp. 328-330)..

Washington Hot Spot
“During my research, I was quite surprised to discover that, statistically, Washington, D.C. had had more UFO sightings per square mile than any other location on earth,” says Stanley. “Furthermore, it makes no sense that anyone, especially the military, would repeatedly fly top secret, advanced, exotic space craft over Washington, D.C.”
“When the governments of the earth finally admit we are not alone, it will truly be a dawning of a new age, and a new public perspective, that will affirm the existence of extra-terrestrial and extra-dimensional entities.”
