“The objective of the book, Masters said, is to spur a new and more informed discussion among believers and skeptics alike.
“I took a multidisciplinary approach in order to try and understand the oddities of this phenomenon,” Masters told Space.com. “Our job as scientists is to be asking big questions and try to find answers to unknown questions. There’s something going on here, and we should be having a conversation about this. We should be at the forefront of trying to find out what it is.”
“When talking about ideas outside the mainstream, scientists and outsiders doing their own, often flawed, investigations have an interest in keeping their distance from each other. For scientists, the professional consequences of close contact with out-there ideas is high. Which, in turn, means that orthodox science probably loses out on some new ideas: the edge cases, the kernels of truth in the nut bin.”

“The main thing I got from my father in this whole thing was how important it was to keep an open mind,” says his son, Joel Hynek, who as a young ham-radio operator used to record many of his father’s witness interviews. “He kept saying, ‘You know, we don’t know still everything there is to know about the universe… There could be aspects of physics that we haven’t come upon yet.’”
Cover of the October 1957 issue of pulp science fiction magazine Amazing Stories. This was a special edition devoted to ‘flying saucers,’ which became a national obsession after airline pilot Kenneth Arnold sighted a saucer-shaped flying objects in 1947.
“There is a great deal of evidence that a small percentage of these UFO sightings are unidentified structured craft exhibiting flight capabilities beyond any known human technology. While there is no single case for which there exists evidence that would stand up to scientific rigour, there are cases with simultaneous observations by multiple reliable witnesses, along with radar returns and photographic evidence revealing patterns of activity that are compelling.
“Declassified information from covert studies is interesting, but not scientifically helpful. This is a topic worthy of open scientific inquiry, until there is a scientific consensus based on evidence rather than prior expectation or belief. If there are indeed extraterrestrial craft visiting Earth, it would greatly benefit us to know about them, their nature and their intent. Moreover, this would present a great opportunity for mankind, promising to expand and advance our knowledge and technology, as well as reshaping our understanding of our place in the universe.”
“For those unsure what to believe, Elizondo offered these words of wisdom to a suspicious questioner at the 2018 International UFO Congress in Phoenix: ‘I would say remain skeptical. Healthy skepticism is very important; in fact, it’s imperative. In fact, in my job as an intelligence officer, I was paid to be skeptical. I think you should always question all the information that comes before you by anybody who says anything, and I think that’s true not just with people like me, I think it’s true with government, religion, and everything in between.’ For a journalist trying to make sense of it all, the skepticism comes naturally. If Elizondo, Mellon, and the To The Stars Academy seem to be working in the great American tradition of P. T. Barnum, the irony remains that the Pentagon may well have its own good reason for keeping the UFO story alive. Not that they’d ever admit it.”
“The actual phenomenon that appears he sees as a symbol, which is projected into visual space and is there misunderstood as an object in space-time. Such an appearance, when misunderstood as a materialobject, stimulates investigation by the ordinary methods of physical science; it should instead, he suggests, be interpreted according to the principles of analytical psychology, whereupon it would be correctly seen as an archetype of the collective unconscious.”
“What all this reveals, then, is that there may be what Koestler refers to as ‘the universal hanging-together of things, their embeddedness in a universal matrix.’ Many ecologists already subscribe to this sense of interrelation in the world, what the ancients called the ‘sympathy’ of life, and the numbers of scientists now converting to this world-view are beginning to multiply. Nobel Prize winner Ilya Prigione of the University of Texas at Austin is studying the ‘spontaneous formation of coherent structures,’ how chemical and other kinds of structures evolve patterns out of chaos. Karl Pribram, a neuroscientist at Stanford University, has proposed that the brain may be a type of ‘hologram,’ a pattern and frequency analyzer which creates ‘hard’ reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension beyond space and time. On the basis of such a model, the physical world ‘out there,’ is, in Pribram’s words, ‘isomorphic with’ — that, the same as, the processes of the brain.
So, if the modern alliance evolving between quantum physicists, neuroscientists, parapsychologists and mystics is not just a short-fused phase in scientific understanding, a paradigm shift may well be imminent. We may soon not only embrace a new image of the universe as non-causal and ‘sympathetic,’ but uncover conclusive evidence that the universe functions not as some great machine, but as a great thought — unifying matter, energy, and consciousness. Synchronous events, perhaps even the broader spectrum of paranormal phenomena, will be then liberated from the stigma of ‘occultism,’ and no longer seen as disturbing. At that point, our perceptions, and hence our world, will be changed forever.”
“David Icke speaks about things C.G. Jung spoke about psychoanalytically years ago, the Shadow, the Akashic Record, and mysterious subliminal ‘synchronism’ connecting worldwide convoluted events and ‘meaningful coincidence.’”
“It takes some people more time to catch-up to the theories, depending how often one personally encounters such events in one’s life and begin to see them as major realities and not just gossiping of cheap talking-points.”

A compelling book written by author, journalist, and broadcaster, Nick Pope, who left a twenty-one-year-career as head of the British government’s UFO Project, culminating in his serving as an Acting Deputy Director in the Directorate of Defense Security in 2006.
“Simply put, the Rendlesham Forest incident is by far the best-documented and most compelling UFO incident never to have taken place,” said Pope. “It took place over a series of three nights, in a forest that lay between two U.S Air Force (USAF) bases in England. This was not some vague ‘lights in the sky’ sighting – the UFO actually landed…this UFO was seen to take off again.”
“In the early hours of December 26, 1980” Airman First Class John Burroughs spotted “strange lights in the forest” of Rendlesham at the Twin U.S Air Force bases of Bentwaters and Woodbridge. The twin bases were home to the 81st Tactical Fighter Wing, which in 1980 operated the A-10 Thunder Bolt II aircraft, nicknamed the Warthog. They were part of a large number of USAF bases in the United Kingdom, known as the 3rd Air Force; Bentwaters and Woodbridge operated as a single entry.
Burroughs and Bud Steffens ventured out the East Gate to investigate a suspected crash of a civilian light aircraft, but they further observed a white light and red and blue lights. The white light seemed to approach them. It did not, then, appeared to be a crashed aircraft.
The men went back to East Gate to phone Law Enforcement (LE) duty desk sergeant “Crash” McCabe who, in turn, contacted Staff Sergeant John Coffey. Coffey then notified on-duty flight Chief Staff Sergeant James W. Penniston who took Airman First Class Edward N. Cabansay to rendezvous with Burroughs and Steffens at the East Gate.
“…while the possibility of a civil aircraft was still being considered, nobody had heard an explosion or any sounds,” said Pope, “and that’s when Steffens made an odd remark that caught everyone’s attention: ‘It didn’t crash. It landed.’”
Penniston radioed Central Security Control and the overall flight chief for the bases, Master Sergeant J. D Chandler. Chandler in turn checked with the control tower at Bentwaters. The operators placed calls to RAF Bawdsey, RAF Watton, and Heathrow Airport in London; they tracked a “bogey” over the Woodbridge base that disappeared from radar. Chandler gave Penniston the okay to investigate along with backup.
No Aircraft Crash
Penniston, Airman First Class John Burroughs, and Airman First Class Edward Cabansag drove down trails that led into the forest, but eventually they proceeded on foot towards “blue, red, white and yellow” lights.
Master Sergeant J.D. Chandler arrived along with Penniston, Burroughs, and Cabansag. The radios of the four men began to malfunction. Chandler relayed messages between the men back to Central Security Control. Shortly following, Cabansag could no longer relay to Chandler. John Burrough and Jim Penniston pushed ahead to locate the lights.
The two men began to feel electrified; hairs on their arms and neck began to stand on end. Their movements seemed stodgy, as they reached a brightly illuminated clearing. A silent explosion of light caused the men to “hit the ground.” When the explosion dissipated, a triangular craft resting on three legs confronted the men, a bank of blue lights on its side and a bright white light on top. There was no sound.
Penniston noted hieroglyphs around the object. Penniston took photographs and sketched the craft and its symbols. He then decided to touch the craft: hard and smooth. The symbols, however, were rough. The white light on top flared up and dimmed as he removed his hand from the craft. The object rose noiselessly above the trees and accelerated at fantastic speed.
Sometime later, Penniston revealed that precisely at the moment he touched a large symbol on the craft, he was infused with visions of ones and zeroes, a binary code, which stopped when he removed his hand. The “code” was recorded in his police notebook. The UFO eventually departed to the east.
The Penniston Codes
The object had left three indentations forming a “near-perfect equilateral triangle.” In the UFO’s passage, branches were snapped off the trees. Rendezvousing with Cabansag, Chandler and six other security force members at RAF Bentwaters operating base, the two witnesses discovered approximately 45-minutes of “missing time.”
Law Enforcement blotters and the Security blotters contained detailed reports of the incident. The security controllers at Central Security Control also completed an Air Force Form 1569. All reports disappeared.
“Somehow, somebody had removed both blotters and the incident report,” said Pope.
Later that morning (deputy squadron commander) Major Edward Drury, Captain Mike Verrano, John Burroughs, James Penniston and Master Sergeant Ray Gulyas decided to investigate the site, take photographs and plaster casts of the indentations.
Depiction of the Rendlesham UFO
A combat support group awards dinner on the evening of December 27 was interrupted by the on-duty shift commander, Lieutenant Bruce England, who announced the UFO “was back.” The Deputy Base Commander decided he would assemble a team to investigate: Lieutenant Bruce England, photographer Sergeant Monroe Nevels, Master Sergeant Bobby Ball, Sergeant Adrian Bustina, Sergeant Frail, and John Burroughs amassed to investigate the scene. Halt brought a mini cassette recorder; Nevels also brought a Geiger counter. Light-alls ordered to illuminate the area would not function.
Further discoveries consisted of radioactive “hot spots” on the Geiger counter readings. Two rolls of thirty-five millimeter film were apparently overexposed. The team had observed multiple lights to the north that changed in shape from elliptical to round. To the south were several more lights. Another object sent down a beam of light near their feet.
“Another object sent down beams into the weapons storage area,” said Halt.
Halt’s recorded conversation revealed a strange flashing red light with pieces falling off. “It looks like an eye winking at you,” said Halt. A laser-like pencil-thin beam of light struck the ground about ten feet ahead of them. One UFO, over Woodbridge, began firing and silently exploded. Sergeant Adrian Bustinza saw Burroughs momentarily disappear and reappear.
Airman First Class Larry Warren was asked to accompany Sergeant Adrian Bustinza. According to Warren, they approached to within 10 to 15 feet of the craft. Warren noted that shadows appeared to pull into the object. At times, there was a time delay.
Around the perimeter, Warren saw the autos of senior staff. Wing Commander Gordon Williams was one such person. Warren sighted three balls of golden light and cylinders; he also saw what appeared to be a “being” with facial features, bright clothing and some type of device. Shortly after the time that Williams conversed with fellow officers, the “being” in a silent-faceoff approached Squad Leader Donald Moreland.
Forest Edge at Rendlesham
The remaining stand of trees at the forest edge, seen from the south. The supposed UFO landing site was among trees like these, in this same area near the eastern forest edge. From this viewpoint, the farmer’s field and Orford Ness lighthouse are off to the right. The UFO is said to have zig-zagged between these trees, an impressive achievement for a craft supposedly the size of a car.
Staff ordered Warren off the site; others might have fled. They debriefed Warren and at one point, seemingly threatening him.
After about forty-five minutes, the light from the craft intensified and lifted with no noise or air disturbance through the trees and shot off.
“It was gone in the blink of an eye!” said Penniston.
A large portion of the book had to do with how British and U.S governments treated the witnesses, the curious handling of the evidence and possible debunking of the landing. Pope also examined the various theories that could account for the happening as mundane or not paranormal.
“Some would doubtless suggest that the whole catalogue of errors,” said Pope, “is so unlikely that some other hidden hand must have been involved, conspiring to ensure that the official investigation turned up nothing and that the initial. Investigators were ‘set up to fail.’”
Much controversy also related to the UK Ministry of Defense’s (MOD) highly classified intelligence study into the UFO mystery: Project Condign. A redacted copy of the final report was eventually published by the MOD on its web site on May 15, 2006. In reference to the Rendlesham Forest incident, the report stated, “that several observers were probably exposed to UAP (unidentified aerial phenomena) radiation for longer than normal UAP sighting periods.”
The 465-page report said, in part, “That UAP exist is indisputable. Credited with the ability to hover, land, take off, accelerate to exceptional velocities and vanish, they can reportedly alter their direction of flight suddenly and clearly can exhibit aerodynamic characteristics well beyond those of any known aircraft or missile – either manned or unmanned.”
In an effort to obtain medical treatment for health problems and sleep disorders, Jim Penniston consulted a hypnotherapist. A second hypnosis session on September 10, 1994 indicated that when Penniston touched the raised glyphs on the craft, he “received a telepathic download of binary numbers.” It was during the examination of events by the staff of History Channel TV that Penniston disclosed he felt compelled “to write down ones and zeros shortly after touching the craft,” said Pope.
A web designer and expert in character ASCII encode as well as a computer systems engineer who worked with binary codes in the USAF, took an interest in the sixteen pages of ones and zeroes in Penniston’s notebook.
The code resulted as latitude, longitudes, and brief text: “Exploration of humanity 666 8100…Hy Brasil…continuous for planetary advance…Tai Shan Qu, China…”
Penniston offered his own private theory in the middle of exotic and skeptical theories that Pope outlines in the book (not to mention Jacques Vallee’s belief that the incident was a military holographic projection in a secret psychotronic test.). Penniston’s theory was that the Rendlesham UFO was Time Travelers from the future. This also brings problems. Critics had questions with that theory as well:
Why would distant-future civilizations use binary code at their advanced stage of development?
Why would a future civilization, possibly 6000 years ahead, need anything resembling 21st Century science?
Lost or Destroyed Records
“We know that some of the key files and documents that might have provided answers about what happened,” said Pope, “have apparently been destroyed or lost in mysterious circumstances.”
Dozens of military personnel stationed at the twin bases of Bentwaters and Woodbridge witnessed the same craft. They have yet to come forward. Said Pope: “We know that light beams from the UFO struck the ground just feet in front of the Deputy Base Commander and a party of men and that later the UFO was seen firing light beams onto the base, and, in particular into the Weapons Storage Area…we know that the UFO was tracked on radar.”
Jim Penniston summarized this way: “It is my thought, but if they are from the future the great part of that thought is that sometime in the future we will know if it is true or not. Is there more to come? Yes, I believe there is much more to come!”
“If there’s something strange in your neighborhood…If there’s something weird and it don’t look good…If you’re seeing things running through your head…An invisible man sleeping in your bed…Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!” (Song by Ray Parker, Jr., 1984).
Leslie Kean, investigative journalist and co-founder of the Coalition for Freedom of Information, takes on the topic of UFOs and delves into some of the better sightings of the phenomena over the last 40 years as proof of an unknown reality (and, in a few cases, highly advanced stealth craft by our governments?). She lays this peruse out painstakingly in UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on theRecord (Harmony Books, Crown Publishing Group, 2010, 335 pages, $25.99).
“Unknown” is the keyword with Ms. Kean as she assesses the situation that debunkers use, as “false flags” and “red herrings,” the argument that thequestionisreally “spaceships” or not. It is a phony argument, she says. We really don’t know what or sometimes don’t have any idea about what UFOs really are. They don’t like to be studied in the laboratory. Some seem to be machine-like; but, if so, they certainly are very unusual machines. And worse yet, many have “ghost-like” qualities and act as if they are magic.
She draws from a roster of good UFO cases: the General Parviz Jafari Iranian Air Force sighting of September 18, 1976, the Oscar Santa Avertas Peruvian Air Force sighting of April 11, 1980, and many others.

“Yes, that phenomenon is definitely extraordinary,” says Kean. “The basic misunderstanding underlying the skeptics’ catchy buzz-phrase – ‘extraordinary claims demand extraordinary evidence’ – is, once again, the equating of UFOs to extraterrestrial spacecraft by definition. When the debunkers rally around this battle cry and dismiss all the evidence with a wave of their hand, this is really what’s on their minds; otherwise, there would be no need for them to be so blindly defensive, and even hostile.”
Perhaps Kean does not always dig deep enough to uncover the truth, however, as in the April 1990 Petit-rechain, Belgium UFO case of an alleged 35 MM slide of an extraordinary object. It was a superb case, Kean said at the time. On July 26, 2011 the hoaxer came forth to tell how he created the hoax out of painted Styrofoam with three spots affixed.
James Oberg and Robert Sheaffer have pointed out the thin areas in Kean’s logic. She quotes the study by French investigator Dominique Weinstein of 1,300 pilot UFO reports. The two individuals point out that even the late J. Allen Hynek said that about 50 percent of commercial pilots and 88 percent of military pilots had a high misperception rate. Ronald Fisher of the International Forensic Research Institute at Florida International University in Miami concurred.
Oberg pointed to a case that was similar to the November 2006 O’Hare airport at Chicago UFO sighting but in Russia; that one turned out to be a cloud trail left behind by a Russian rocket launch.
Kean attempts to gain sobriety and acceptance of the phenomena by saying people need to keep from thinking UFOs are ‘spaceships’ – or to at least stopspeaking in those terms:
“People assume UFOs are, one, a question of belief and, two, the reason they’re a question of belief is that the term means alien spacecraft. Neither of those things is accurate. It was very important to me to make it clear from the beginning that nobody claims to know what UFOs are.” (To Clint Hendler on October 31, 2010.)
If Kean truly does not want people to speak in terms of ‘spaceships,’ then she and others must truly be open to other possibilities and places that evidence leads us, even those that suggest that humans are highly liable to misperceive or lie and hoax. I personally do not exclude “x” factors such as psychology or even parapsychology – what the late C.G. Jung referred to as Archetypes.
More Than Meets the Eye
Perhaps the reason as to why the Air Force, the Robertson Panel, as well as the Condon Committee, treated the phenomena so mundanely after a few months, a few years, is because they’ve concluded early that they were dealing with “ghost phenomena” of sorts: and what do you do with ghosts? They’ve been around for a long time—as long as mankind. “Who you gonna call?”
The Ghost Busters
You may recall the late ‘spiritualism movement’ around the turn of the 20th century and the 19th century: The many cults, churches, and movements that built a religion out of supposedly talking with the deceased and the pondering over teleports and ghost apparitions? This movement, also, was not eagerly sponsored by the United States government; they did no “official” investigations into “spirits”; though, government employees, as individuals, may have studied spirits and have their own independent beliefs. When you think about it, there were just so many things you could do with ghosts; didn’t some inventors create machines to hopefully communicate with them? They say “boo” and you respond in various ways by saying “uooo!,” “eeek!,” or “wow!,” and life seemed to go on with no absolute gain to our knowledge.
To See Clearly
“Our thesis is that the origins of this taboo are political. As political scientists, we are concerned with a possible connection between the need to dismiss the UFO and the way in which modern peoples organize and govern their societies,” says Kean. “The inability to see clearly and talk rationally about UFOs seems to be a symptom of authoritative anxiety, a socially subconscious fear of what the reality of the UFO might mean for modern government.”
A High and Modern Religious Aspect
And one might add: wearisomeness — for the many ‘cultist’ UFO religions that have latched onto the UFO topic as a way of selling, promoting, forging their own new age religion – some as pure science-fiction – others as hoaxing, lying, fabrication, psychological pathology (believers and debunkers alike); and you don’t know how ingeniously clever a pathological hoaxer can be. You keep butting your head up against these characters (and some claim to be ‘investigators’) and see if your Ufological inquisitiveness doesn’t dry out. “There is nothing to fear in ufology but ufology itself” (Steve Erdmann, 2008).
More Than One Source
(Which poses an interesting question: If the UFOs are such an etheric and non physical reality – how can they crash leaving wreckage and debris? This would seem to suggest, if true, there is more than one source involved. And what about the worldwide happenings of animal mutilations?)
There is no doubt: some of the cases are extraordinary – but – extraordinary – what? As a journalist, I welcome any kind of mystery; mystery is my soul. It makes no difference as to the inherent nature of the mystery. But I suspect that to those people whose secret life depends on ‘spaceships’ (and I have a sneaking suspicion that so does Kean’s Wishing-Well), even those associated debunkers, it comes as a disappointment that the UFOs may be multifaceted and multifarious. But the people betting on a psychic-ghost origin, take heart: With the prospect of Cairns, France Supercollider and advances in Quantum Physics coming near on the horizon, maybe science is about to take a giant leap in knowledge. Science does need to forge ahead.
Kean says: “As the contributors have shown, there is too much at stake to continue stone-walling. At the same time, we can’t deny the facts that there is a risk in moving forward. The phenomena itself has placed us in a precarious situation that we have not chosen, and that we can do nothing about. We must strive to learn what we can, for it’s in our deepest nature and best interest to do so – to simply want to find out.”
The 1976 Iran UFO Incident
A Government Agency
So, John Podesta and Leslie Kean want to open a small U.S. government agency to investigate UFOs. It’s not a unique request. UFO researchers J. Allen Hynek and Donald Keyhoe made a somewhat similar wish in the past. Maybe one day when our technology blends and colludes with our ‘spirituality’ we can then cross the line of knowledge and shake the hand of a ‘ghost.’

Anaiya Sophia is a mystic of an almost forgotten faith. She is mostly known as being an author of six books, including ‘Womb Wisdom’, ‘Sacred Sexual Union’ and ‘Sacred Relationships’. She is currently working on her latest book, ‘Fierce, Fierce Feminine: One Woman’s Quest to find Her Authentic Voice’.
“Every great tradition has performed ritual and ceremony to protect themselves from these influences. Every sunrise and sundown, the Gnostics, Essenes and Cathars, to name a few, would pray for clear sight, protection and humility. But for some reason, we have stopped doing that. I think we believe that these things don’t exist anymore, or that we have outgrown them.
“I am not sure that is a good thing to be thinking.
“It is said, the archons do not carry within them the spark of the Divine, that they have been created out of a being who is false, without love, and motivated by separation.
“It is at this point the New Agers jump in, saying nothing like this can exist. That is not true. And this is how the game continues on.
“What do the archons want?
“To maintain a world of control. To keep us preoccupied with fear, separation, chaos, resulting in us eating more, buying more, drinking more, smoking more, working harder, taking pharmaceutical and recreational drugs, creating war, buying weaponry, being hostile, killing off people, killing off animals, killing off land.”
“In fact, in the novel Good Omens, written by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, a demon appropriately named Crowley proves that the Archon-way is superior in the fight against Heaven. He demonstrates that traffic jams and phone service outages are far more efficient in damning souls than such common demonic methods as possession or temptation. Death by a thousand frustrations is the best way to dim the human spirit.
“Ponder this. I mean, as humans, we are basically prepared (especially if we go to church or watch enough Netflix) to deal with and overcome life’s significant challenges, from a family death to a nearby war. In a Gnostic sense, we share their essence with the Alien God, and thus infinity is part of our vibe. It’s the little shit in life that seems to get us. Imagine going through a day when:
The car won’t start.
You seem to catch every bloody red light.
You need five departments at work to sign off on your order for print cartridges.
The customer service representative of your cable company is oblivious after you spend an hour trying to connect.
“Like Morpheus said in The Matrix: “It’s like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.” And these events don’t seem at all like an accident.
“Between bureaucracy and a faulty system, you can feel your soul dimming, your mind numbing, and your heroic side perishing. You become forgetful and anxious, a Stockholm Syndrome victim to a passive aggressive kismet.”
“While all of these are excellent examples of how the professional class throughout Western civilization has effectively destroyed society, it’s extremely important to bear in mind that all of them have been significantly empowered by their legal counselors. In other words, without their lawyers and attorneys protecting them every step of the way, they all would have been neutralized along the way. Especially for those individuals and corporate entities who aggressively utilize their legal prowess to take advantage of unjust laws as well as legislation full of loopholes are their lawyers always standing at the ready to do their bidding.
“Just as Corporations are the Backbone of Predatory Capitalism, Corporate Attorneys are their Agents of Disaster Capitalism
“Herein lies the truth about every rogue corporation, some of which have run roughshod over whole nations. Each employs a veritable phalanx of corporate attorneys who collectively empower their respective companies to conduct its business activity just within the limits of the law. Were it not for these lawyers without-a-conscience, most of the offending corporations would at least try to behave in a manner that was socially acceptable. Unfortunately for society many corporate criminals deliberately hire attorneys to ‘safeguard’ them from prosecution, due to their full intention to behave in a way that is socially unacceptable.”
“All people should now be waking up to the realization that they were mind-controlled by the establishment. The centuries-long tyrannical regime is steadfastly reaching its end, to be destroyed for ever. No more lies and manipulations. All markets will be free, all aspects of lives free from oppression and suppression. People will take responsibility for their own lives and decide for themselves.
“There is no overpopulation and there is enough food for everyone. It was President John F. Kennedy in the early 1960s who already warned us about our hidden rulers. He was a most honorable and courageous statesman. It’s time to wake up and stand up, as brothers and sisters together.”
“Dads have more of a challenge with an ongoing relationship with the mother of their child.”
“Kirby Ingles, who lives in Missouri, says he experienced bias during the 2009 custody battle for his five-year-old son. His attorney, who did not specialize in men’s divorce, told him that the court judge would ‘most likely lean towards [your ex-wife’s side because the child is five or six years old so needs their mother.’ Ingles wanted more custody and joint decision-making but was told this is how judges usually rule. ‘They didn’t really want to do the work and put up a fight and do any digging in the case,’ he says.
“Ingle’s wife got primary custody, but he has hired a men’s divorce lawyer to renegotiate his child support payments after being hit with a decrease in his salary. He says his new advocate is ‘more sincere and compassionate to his needs’ than a regular family law lawyer and is more equipped to deal with specific issues that affect him such as father alienation.
“But not all experts think men’s divorce specialists provide added value. Ryznar thinks regular family law attorneys are equipped to handle any case and that the niche men’s firms are largely a marketing ploy to ‘drum up business.'”
Distraught: Many divorced fathers describe the loss of their children as ‘an emotional amputation’ or ‘a living bereavement’
“By the time the case reached court, the sons were settled in a new school. The judge admitted that what the woman had done was illegal, but because it was in the best interests of the children to be with their mother, he did nothing.
”’She had got away with effectively kidnapping my children,’ said the father. His relationship with his sons has all but broken down. Their new home is too far for them to come to London. When he goes to see them, he has to stay in a hotel.
”’The children get bored in an hour or two,’ he says. ‘They have their friends and their sports, which they would rather do instead.’
“He tells me he finds the situation ‘so goddamn painful. I try to play the role of a father – but how can I when I have been deliberately moved to the periphery of their lives?’
“The situation leaves many men I have interviewed distraught. They describe the loss of their children as ‘an emotional amputation’ or ‘a living bereavement’.
“It is no wonder that within two years of divorce, half of fathers lose contact with their children.
“But this misery is not only the fault of the parents. The family court system is adversarial and encourages couples to fight, says Nadine O’Connor, campaign manager at the lobby group Fathers4Justice.
“And change, she says, will be a long time in coming – until lawyers stop making their own killing from warring parents, children will continue to be used as weapons.”
“Your children continue to cite mistakes you made in the past—mistakes you regret, but thought were forgivable or even overlooked by them, let alone a reason to hate and divorce a parent. Mistakes you thought other loving and imperfect parents also made: yelling, working too much, missing an important event, showing up late to pick them up from soccer, etc. Nothing you say or do helps.
Your children’s intense emotionality of fear and agony seems so disproportionate, and the ‘abusive’ or ‘neglectful’ incidents to process are laden with distortions, exaggerations—essentially reinventing family history. Their emotions are palpable and pitched. You’re told you don’t listen; you just argue. But you believe orienting to facts and reality could help. The children may ask you to show them ’empathy’ and propose the unthinkable:
If you love them, you will leave them alone; walk away. You tell them you can’t do that, you love them too much. They retort, ‘You don’t get it, you’re so selfish, it’s all about you.’ You remain the monster in the horror show you can’t escape from.”
“Lust, greed, envy, anger and revenge are some ‘dark’ traits we like to avoid – but turns out, we can’t help it. Our mind has tendency to attract towards dark and easy things which gives temporary pleasure. Sometimes we take pride in our dark acts because our mind craves it.
“War and violence are fueled by human greed and envy which human can’t get rid of. Genocide has never resolved any problems – in fact it made existing problems worse than ever. Why human trafficking, drugs, alcohol, prostitution and pornography exist in this World? It’s simple because there are many people who crave it and even motivate it. Remember there’s no supply without demand.”
The unrelenting love by animals and pets – we owe them so much and need to care for them as persons and do not harm:
“Brainwashing and Parental Alienation Syndrome”
“I agree with Gardner’s (1987) assessment that most mothers in custody disputes do
some form of brainwashing. I have found that mothers’ attempts to turn their children against their fathers in custody disputes are common. I have also found that this is by far the most destructive aspect of divorce on children. I now consider Parental Alienation of children as a form of child abuse, since it leads to enduring psychopathology.
“Kelly’s (1993) longitudinal research of child’s post-divorce adjustment found that the majority of children adjust to divorce, and older children express relief. Most symptoms last 6 months to 2 years post separation, and usually only involve adjustment disorders. (I discuss this further in chapter 11 Children of Divorce.)
“Only about 10% of divorcing couples with children fight over custody. Of this group,
at least one parent often has hostile, egocentric and paranoid features. In a study of
MMPIs given to parents in custody evaluations, the MMPI’s of the parents who lost the custody dispute had significantly higher scores in Psychopathic Deviant (hostility), Paranoia, and Mania (narcissistic and impulsive tendencies), than parents who won the custody dispute (Otto and Collins, 1995).
“Most children do adjust to divorce, except if a disturbed parent uses them as a pawn to punish the other parent. This traumatizes the child, and its effects may be life long, and is often passed on generation after generation.
“Gardner (1987) stated, ‘Although the mothers in these situations may have a variety of motivations for programming their children against their fathers, the most common one relates to the old saying, ‘Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.’ … Because these mothers are separated, and cannot retaliate directly at their husbands, they wreak vengeance by attempting to deprive their former spouses of their most treasured possessions, the children. And the brainwashing program is an attempt to achieve this goal” (p.87).
“Gardner also feels that these mothers are aggressing against their own children by brainwashing them against their fathers. ‘These mothers exhibit the mechanism of reaction formation, in that their obsessive love of their children is often a cover-up for their underlying hostility’ (p.87)…’And when these mothers ‘win,’ they not only win custody, but they win total alienation of their children from the hated spouse. The victory here results in psychological destruction of the children which, I believe, is what they basically want anyway (p.88).
“Brainwashing is a conscious act of programming the child against the other parent. However, Gardner went on to describe what he refers to as ‘Parental Alienation Syndrome.’ The concept of the Parental Alienation Syndrome includes the Brainwashing component, but is more inclusive. It includes not only conscious but also unconscious factors within the programming parent that contribute to the child’s alienation from the other parent.”

Colin Bennett portrays the late Edward J. Ruppelt as a hero and iconic archetype that steered a path between erratic and wild military superiors, witnesses and the press. Ruppelt was a United States Air Force officer who, from 1953 to 1959, headed Project Blue Book, the USAF’s UFO Project. Shortly after adding, in 1959, incongruous and toned-down chapters at the end of his controversial 1956 book on UFOs, Ruppelt died of a heart attack in 1960.
(Flying Saucers over the White House: The Inside Story of Captain Edward J. Ruppelt and his Official U.S. Air Force Investigation of UFOs, Colin Bennett, Cosimo, Inc., http://www.cosimobooks.com, P.O. Box 416, Old Chelsea Station, New York 10011, 169 pages, 2010, $16.99.)
What Is Past Is Prologue
“No one was born more American than he,” instructs Bennett in a somewhat heavy, liberally-used British-Shakespearean style throughout the book. “The demons were all around him in the aircraft and the weaponry. He had all the sacred courage of the Wright brothers and the madness of the astronauts. As thanks for this, after he died, almost every copy of his book disappeared from bookstores worldwide, never to be seen again, and they were not bought by customers.”
An Official Journey into Magnolia/ Magonia
(Magnolia: a 1999 movie by Paul Thomas Anderson about paranormal synchronicity/ Magonia: a surrealistic world spoke of by Jacques Vallee.)
Such hijinks seemed to be part and parcel of Ruppelt’s sojourn as a UFO investigator and administrator. Ruppelt took a very poorly organized, almost nonexistent government office and slowly turned it into a fully respected and greatly enhance division of the Air Force—-from Project Grudge to a Project Bluebook—-in a journey that was onerous and often cumbersome but that invariably built, however, respectability on the stepping-stones of majorUFOcases.
Generals Ramey and Samford Sitting, Captain Ruppelt Standing
One such case was the September 10, 1951 Fort Monmouth, New jersey T33/radar episode that almost literally forced the hands of the Air Force, cracking the heads of Chief Of Air Major-General Cabell, Lieutenant-Colonel Rosengarten, and Lieutenant Jerry Cummings, to pledge aid to a more serious Air Force UFO Project.
Blue Book went from a one-man operation at a desk at the Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC) belonging to Officer James Rodgers to an official staff of ten people with Top Secretclearance and many paid consultants.
Ruppelt’s growing-pains tallied cases of destroyed UFO data by military personnel, rather “quirky” happenings that manifested so often that Bennett begins to postulate a Roger Penrose/ M.C. Escher illusion: “A UFO experience then being liminal, is half-in half-out of the Cartesian frame, making it a most peculiar thing that exists in the intermediate area between facts and fiction….films blur, samples get lost, and what appear to be automatically generated warnings (black helicopters. Men in Black) appear….photographs and physical items (and on occasion cattle and people) all disappear within the UFO experience framework….may belong to this world only in part…..” (pp. 48-49)
Movie Scenes of Ruppelt in Office: “UFOs: The True Story of Flying Saucers” (1956)
Alice’s Cheshire Cat
Here Bennett interjects the sighting of Mrs. Ann Sohn of May, 1952 which contains “humanoid” pilots, a category that even Project Bluebook avoided (this would have been a Hynek ‘Third Kind’ category). Her sighting precludes the July, 1952 UFO flap, but holds elements of the bizarre, senselessly playful Alice-In-Wonderland’s Cheshire cat, dream-like qualities that Project Bluebook was not prepared to enfold. Bennett says a “psycho-social filter” was even in play for many cases that came to Blue Book’s doorstep. Enter mysterious civilian groups: Robert Johnson and Mr. Brewster of the Republic Aircraft Corporation, later, also, the Rand Corporation, or, the Beacon Hill Group, a segment Bennett refers to as the ‘common techno-industrial base’ which would later become known as the New World Order.
The ‘Common Techno-Industrial Base’ As It Has Grown Into –
The Military-Industrial-Corporate-Complex-Matrix As It Is Today
The drama thickens around classical UFO cases such as the January 21, 1952 Mitchel Air Force Base, New York/Grumman TBM Avenger incident. “….(the UFO drew) away from their pursuers for most measured manner, increasing speed steadily and performing extraordinary maneuvers quite beyond the technology of the present day….” (p. 79.) The UFO activity crescendo in July, 1952 with the “invasion” over the White House Capitol in Washington, D.C: spooky objects and madcap military pronouncements were entwined, as Captain John McHugo and Lieutenant William Patterson were vectored to UFOs and Patterson’s aircraft circled by a ”cluster” of glowing objects.
The resultant press conference, witnessed by Rupplet and Major Donald Keyhoe, became a circus of Kafka-like actions by Major General John Samford (along with General Roger Ramey, Colonel Donald Bower and others); “Struggled for verbal expression and produced a weird and wonderful variety of responses, some puerile, some quite mistaken….” (p. 133)
Photo of UFO in Passaic, New Jersey During the 1952 Flap Taken By George Stock
The July, 1952 “invasion” was officially denounced as metro-logical: heat inversion (layers of hot air pressing against cold air), mirroring lights from the city. Keyhoe and Ruppelt both struggled with the absurdity of such fiction. Adding to the paradox and Mysterium, Ruppelt surprisingly added three extra chapters to his book, in 1959, seemingly mocking the UFO subject in a way that was suspicious and uncharacteristic of his writing style in 1956. Bennett says: “….his retractions were, like the UFOs, and indeed like the solid globe itself, not quite real.”
The Director of UFO Research for the US Air Force’s “Project Blue Book,” Captain Ruppelt stated: “Of these UFO reports, the radar/visual reports are the most convincing. When ground radar picks up a UFO target and a ground observer sees a light where the radar target is located, then a jet interceptor is scrambled to intercept the UFO and the pilot also sees the lights and gets a radar lock only to have the UFO almost impudently outdistance him, there is no simple answer.”

A rather refreshing book in that Pilkington covers Ufology in an uninhibited, probing and inquisitiveness rarely found in the topic. He and his partner, John Lumberg, ventured about the globe, examining UFO evidence and stories and relentlessly asking embarrassing questions to intricate and prominent UFO persons.
(MirageMen: An Adventure intoParanoia, Espionage, PsychologicalWarfare, andUFOS, Mark Pilkington, Skyhorse Publishing, 555 Eight Avenue, Suite 903, New York, N.Y. 10018. 2010. 338 Pages. $22.95.)
Crop Circle Tomfoolery
For one thing, the book was extremely refreshing for one to read that the two men knew many people that were behind the “crop circle myth” and, in fact, participated in the Oliver Castle circle, wherein two blobs were photo-shopped into the special effects in 1996. Lumberg goes about telling everyone exactly how he helped invent the hoax. But these facts are never fully publicized and the topic always leans towards the paranormal. There is hardly ever talk about crop circles that contain poor or bad geometry, as well.
The book, in large part, centers around Richard C. Doty, “a Mephistophelean character” that worked for the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) as a counter-intelligence and counter-espionage agent at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico, and who, apparently as part of his duties, was to lie, spin tall-tales, and spread confusion about UFOs as Psy-ops disinformation “data chaff.”
Psy-ops disinformation technicians consider what they do a “science,” though I find it extremely hard to believe it is true science as it works against basic scientific principles of trying to nail down absolute facts and reality into some established and clarified form. It would appear to be an anti-scientific movement and probably criminal if hoaxing, lying and deliberately tampering with evidence are crimes.
UFOs Are Real
Pilkington reviews his association with the UFO community over the years, including his personal association of silvery, reflective spheres in Yosemite National Park in mid-July, 1995. On page 269, the author tells us of Walter Bosley who had worked security clearance at Edward’s Air Force Base, was a former FBI and AFOSI employee at Wright-Patterson’s Counter-espionage Branch, and Cover-agent of a “particularly highly classified aircraft” at Wright Patterson, which Bosley was taken to see one night out in the desert, looking up to see an “amazing, non-human” aircraft.
He relates the tale of Paul Bennewitz, engineer, and physicist of Thunder Scientific, who led a rather complicated UFO venture of filmed UFOs near Kirtland Air Force Base, his association with disinformation-agent Richard Doty. Doty apparently planted UFO material and helped form and circulate the Serpo alien contact-story that allegedly took place on April 24, 1964. The aliens allegedly wanted to mutually transfer participants in a special Project Crystal Knight. After chasing dubious UFO evidence for several years, Bennewitz died at age 75 in 2003: a manipulated man victimized by Black-ops propaganda in numerous Psy-ops projects.
Pilkington analyzes years of government stealth-aircraft such as the Palladium Technology and more as Project Dragon Lady, Lightning Bug, and even further exploring Nazi UFO technology from World War II. Pilkington concludes the UFO field was a pretty mixed bag of confusion, offering no good solution, but a whole lot of questions and even deception.
“UFOs are the ultimate tools of shock and awe, perfect weapons of mass deception. To understand how they are deployed, to see how they go to work in our hearts and minds, is to grasp the reality of the world we live in, saturated by media, bombarded by truth, half-truths, falsehoods, and myths,” says the author, “the mirage men want us to believe simultaneously in both extremes of possibility that the UFOs and their occupants are real, and that they have never existed at all.”
One is reminded of the Number Six character in the 1960s TV series THE PRISONER (starring Patrick McGoohan) where Number Six is confronted by numerous mind-games in the mysterious ‘Village’ and stalked and corralled by a plasma-like “Rover.” Likewise, Pilkington introduces us to variant types of “brain-washing.” He tells us of the late Leon Davidson, an engineer from Los Alamos who suspected a worldly origin of UFOs as psychological weapons in the 1950s: “Davidson was convinced that the CIA was behind each new development of the revolving UFO narration…These were all methods of obfuscation; what Davidson was talking about is a little more sophisticated deception.”
The Wild UFO West
The Wild, Wild West TV series portrayed two fictional Secret Service agents of the U.S. government using the latest scientific techniques and espionage sensations in a blend of western elements of the 1800s with science fiction and alternate history. Agent Artemus Gordon, a supreme artist of deception and magic, appears as only half a human body to demonstrate his prestidigitation skills: “We may have lost the war, but heaven knows we haven’t lost our sense of humor.” The same sardonic humor has continued through to our present-day espionage artists.
Wild, Wild West
Offshoots of this phenomena would be the MJ-12 documents, Bill Moore, the Aviary, Project Aquarius, Bernard Newman’s 1948 novel, TheSaucerFlying, about government hoaxing, Project Beta, the Falcon and the Condor. Some of this was originated back in the Second World War with the technology of Professor Giuseppe Belluzzo, Rudolf Schriever, Dr. Richard Miethe, and the V-7. A 2004 DiscoveryScience TV special called “The Real Flying Saucers” gave a cavalcade of such events, including the Avro Corporation Project Y2 hovercraft, as well as a brief clip of the 1950 B-movie TheFlying Saucer where Russia was the origin of ‘flying saucers’ using advanced technology. Reviewer Jim Riecken said: “Back in 1949 about 80% of Americans thought flying saucers were real but did not automatically believe in ETs. Others thought they came from the U.S.S.R, while most thought they were American secret weapons.”
How many researchers suspected or had insight that UFOs could also be psychological gimmickry as Weaponsof MassDeception?
THE FLYING SAUCER, 1950, a Mikel Conrad movie.
Dr. Leon Davidson
For Leon Davidson, it was self-evident that the CIA was behind it all: “It delegated the Air Force to act as the official ‘investigator’ to stave off the public inquiry. It secretly sponsored the formation of saucer study groups and contact clubs, including NICAP (under T. Townsend Brown, with whom, incidentally, I have had voluminous correspondence). The CIA set up many saucer publishers, sponsored the publicity received by Adamski’s books and others, and sponsored the wave of saucer articles in 1952 in ‘Life,’ ‘Look,’ etc.”
Wild, Wild West: The Night of the Man-Eating House
Agents West and Gordon are sent to transport a prisoner to the hospital after the prisoner spent nearly thirty years in solitary confinement for treason. Looking for a place to spend the night, the men come upon a deserted mansion whose doors mysteriously swing wide open for the travelers and slam shut once they enter. As night approaches, the men begin to hear a crying woman but they can not find its source. WrittenbyAnonymous.

(“Choose your next witticism carefully, Mr. Bond, it may be your last.” Auric Goldfinger, GOLDFINGER 1964.)
Maria Bartiromo, TV hostess, financier, recalls the wild devil-may-care-atmosphere of the Wall Street Gang at one of the many parties they held leading up to the 2008 explosion. She recalled one specific holiday celebration in 2006: “The high-profile-party was crowded with well-known Wall Street faces. The host was dressed as James Bond, 007, and ‘scantily clad Bond girls’ roamed the party serving drinks,” told Kerry Hannon, USA Today writer, about Bartiromo. “(In) looking back on those parties, I can recall this giddiness in the air,” said Bartiromo, “the extravagance, the excess. It is burned into my memory – the sight of all those incredibly accomplished and wealthy men and women laughing and drinking.” Bartiromo saw well-known Wall Street faces: John Thain, Chief Executive of the New York Stock Exchange, who recently had purchased a 27.5 million-dollar apartment; Investment bankers from Stearns, Lehman Brothers, and Goldman Sachs; Paris Hilton; Jimmy Cayne, the flamboyant Chief Executive at Bear Stearns, took friendly bards from guests about his 15-million-dollar Christmas bonus. Dick Fuld, the head of Lehman Brothers, preferred being a lone-wolf and would hug one corner, hold private conversations, and “look uncomfortable.”
A couple of Bond Girls slid next to Fuld, along with a photographer: “take your picture?” asked the photographer. Fuld rushed off in protest: “I’m not getting my picture taken with any Bond Girls!” he snapped and rushed off. Cayne was amused by the whole thing.
Bond, James Bond
“The Bond theme was an interesting commentary on the era. Schwarzman might well have imagined himself as the 007 of Wall Street, smoothly sailing above the troubles that afflicted others,” said Bartiromo, “he appeared to enjoy playing the sophisticated man’s man; the male ideal; a magnet for power, money, and women for whom danger and intrigue were all in a day’s work.”
The apartment in which the Bond Party took place was purchased by Schwarzman from previous owner Saul Steinberg (Bartiromo’s father-in-law), and was once owned by John D. Rockefeller in 1971. It was a story of the world’s richest apartment building; old money, oil money, new money, and borrowed money. The Steinbergs were the “undisputed Dean and Doyenne of Nouvelle society,” said Johanna Berkman in New York Magazine, “he…as one of Wall Street’s most feared Masters of the Universe…she…the ultimate trophy wife.” Saul Steinberg was CEO of the Reliance Group Holding Company, having taken a 311 million-dollar loss in 1999. A 150-guest April 4 cocktail party found the Steinbergs “stock-rich, but cash-poor.” Their earlier lifestyle lingered like rum tobacco smoke: Gayfryd Steinberg’s 3 million-dollar “French Directoire-themed affair” for 500 guests (and 50,000 French roses) in the marriage of Saul’s daughter to a scion of the Tisch family, and the $1 million fiftieth-birthday party themed in Saul’s love for Old Master paintings (this particular party highlighted a nude female dancer celebrating Rembrandt’s Danae), Saul had been advertised in a 1968 Forbes as making more money than any other U.S citizen under 30-year-of-age.

Steve Schwarzman’s 60th birthday celebration at the cavernous Park Avenue Armory on February 14, 2007 was a 3-million dollar extravaganza fit for a king. Schwarzman was not exactly a king, but not far behind with his company, The Blackstone Group, holding $88-billion in assets and 112 companies worth $200 billion: Schwarzman was worth $677.2 million in a public offering of Blackstone and $7.8 billion in shares.
The Birthday Bash
James B. (Jimmy) Lee, vice-chairman at J. P. Morgan Chase, sent him a June 21, 2007 email: “You were like Indiana Jones over the last few weeks….they rolled giant boulders at you….fired poison darts at you ….threw you into that giant snake pit…..and yet you still found the grail and got the blonde….bravo.” Said Daniel Gross in his June 19, 2007 “The Golden Ass” (www.slate.com): “He’s like an NBA player who, having gone the length of a court for a slam-dunk with the game already put away, starts trash-talking, jumps atop the scorers’ table, gestures obscenely at opposing fans, pinches a cheerleader, chest-bumps the referee, sticks his tongue out at the camera, all the while grabbing his crotch and yelling loudly that he’s the Man.That would certainly get the attention of the ordinarily forgiving disciplinarians in the league office.” El-Erian, CEO of Pimco, the world’s largest bond holder, said of Schwarzman: “He was everywhere that year, bullish verging on boastful about the wonders of private equity and by implication, his own golden touch.When I lunched with him at the Four Seasons Restaurant in January, 2006, he was ebullient: twenty to forty billion dollar deals in a very short time, a phenomenal uptick in the amount of money flowing into private equity, at least a twenty per cent annual return on investments.”
George McCartney said on August 10, 2007 in “Jekyll And Hyde In A Box” (www.chroniclesmagazine.org): “Schwarzman, George W. Busch’s roommate at Yale and SkullandBones brother, wished to inform all who cared that, when he pursued a deal, he wanted to ‘inflict pain’ and ‘kill off’ his rivals,” said McCartney, “so there we have it. In American business today, it pays to have murder in your heart.Who can doubt the wisdom of Schwarzman’s lethal intent? He’s a billionaire seven times over. Can’t argue with that.” “You watch,” Schwarzman would boast to Dan Dorfman, “like the Rockefellers, I’ll own the world. I could be the first Jewish President.”
In his senior year of school, Schwarzman wrote W. Averell Harriman (war-time Ambassador to Russia and former Governor of New York) during the Paris Peace Talks at the time, because of his admiration of Harriman as a fellow SkullandBones member. He met with Harriman for lunch at his Upper East Side townhouse:
“Young man, are you independently wealthy?” Harriman asked.
“No, sir, I’m not” was the answer.
“Well, I am the son of a very rich man, which has made an enormous difference ____that’s the reason you’re seeing me. If you have any interest in the political world, I’d advise you to become independently wealthy yourself.”
“His business philosophy is ‘I want war – not a series of skirmishes’ and ‘I always think of what will kill off the bidder’….the combination of self-indulgence, seeming disregard for those less privileged, and militant hostility towards rivals inflamed many on Wall Street.….Schwarzman’s holiday parties were always ‘themed’. That year’s theme was Bond – as in James, not municipal,” said Maria Bartiromo in “Eyewitness to the Crisis” (www.msnbcmedia.msn.com), “The host was dressed in a snazzy tux, portraying 007, with Christine shimmering at his side in a silver gown. Scantily clad ‘Bond girls’ roamed the party serving drinks and hors d’oeuvres.There were repeated joking references to ‘Goldfinger’ throughout the evening.”
Novelist Jane Stanton Hitchcock said: “Steve, I always knew you were going places, I just did not know you would end up owning them all.”
The Valentine celebration at the Armory was in the same Roman-type-Saturnalia celebration. A full-length portrait of Schwarzman by Andrew Festing was brought in, and dinner was served in a faux night-club setting, with orchids and palm trees, lobster, stone crabs, filet mignon, baked Alaska, and an array of expensive wines. A Palm Beach chef complained about an employee’s shoes because he found the squeaks of the rubber soles disturbing.
Steve Schwarzman at His 60th Birthday
Composer-pianist Marvin Hamlisch played a number from ‘A Chorus Line.’ Patti LaBelle, along with the Abyssinian Baptist Church choir, sang ‘He’s got the Whole World in His Hands.’ The headliner, Rod Stewart, among other songs, sang ‘Tonight’s The Night’ and ‘Reason to Believe.’ Stewart was paid about one million dollars for his performance.
In a decadent modern-day reenactment of Petronius Arbiter’s Satyr icon, said Ron Mwangaguhunga in his blog “The Corsair,” was an army of power and obscenely wealthy people such as real estate kingpin Sam Zell. Zell exemplified the stratospheric rise of private equity: the then sixty-five- year-old billionaire was the wealthiest men in the world.“Crusty, confident, and an unrepentant potty-mouth,” said Bartiromo, “Zell was both admired and feared for his ability to play extremely high stakes games.” Zell owned Equity Office Properties Trust, a conglomerate of 573 properties. Zell sold to Blackstone Group for $39 billion. Schwarzman’s Blackstone Group, then flipped hundreds of the buildings for $27 billion.
(“Bond: ‘Do you expect me to talk?’ Auric Goldfinger: ‘No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!’” – GOLDFINGER, 1964, said while agent James Bond is about to be dissected by a laser beam.)
Zell stood to make $900 million from the Blackstone sale. “For Zell, the vote ends another chapter in the career of a real estate developer known as the ‘grave dancer,’ ” said Brian Louis and Bob Ivry in http://www.bloomberg.com, “for spotting opportunities in distressed properties.”
After the sale, Zell approached Tribune Company (which owns 11 daily newspapers), buying a stake in that company. For Steve Roth of Vornado Realty Trust, the other bidder, the purchase would have allowed Vornado to bolster its East and West Coast holdings. In the end, Vornado benefited by buying some Equity office properties that were put up for sale by Blackstone.
THE GRAVE DANCER
Samuel Zell was the only son of a Polish Jewish couple who fled their native country shortly before it was invaded by German soldier hordes in 1939. The couple immigrated to Chicago where Zell was born. At the age of 12, travelling on the way to Hebrew class, Zell noticed out-of-the-neighborhood sales of PlayboyMagazine at a 50 cent price – and Zell would resell the magazine for $1.50 to his classmates. Zell would later use his ‘greed is good’ acumen upon forming the Equity Finance and Management Company in 1968 with partner Robert Lurie, acquiring distressed properties from developers (some inhabited by squatters), renovating them into fully rentable units at highly inflated prices, earning him the nickname of “theGraveDancer.”
Sam Zell, The Grave Dancer
Zell was able to slink through the recession of the early 1990s at a lesser pace until REITs were created by Congress in 1960 (allowing real estate investments much like mutual funds), and in the 1990s, became an attractive way for many private real estate companies to raise funds; and by converting their holdings into REIT shares, Zell could postpone paying capital gains taxes.
PETER COTTONTAIL HOPPING DOWN THE MONEY-TRAIL
In 2001, EOP Acquired Spieker Properties, Inc., the largest REIT on the West Coast. The $7.2 billion price included $905 million in cash, $431 million in stock, $3.6 billion in equity, and $2.1 billion in debt. In October 2001 EOP became their first REIT to be added to the S&P 500 and the only member of Fortune 500.
Like most real-estate, REITS carry large amounts of debt on their books. REITS enjoyed a sturdy bull market from 2003 to 2006 and Americans went insane for real estate – launching further into 2007 with soaring prices and big firms leveraged with increasing debt to the exploding craze. Sam Zell sold Equity Offices Property Trust to buy-out-firm Blackstone in the largest takeover ever of a real estate company – a $36 billion deal. Then the bubble burst.
Sam Zell told CNBC television on March 3, 2011: “My single biggest financial concern is the loss of the dollar as the reserve currency. I can’t imagine anything more disastrous to our country…you’re already seeing things in the market that are suggesting that confidence in the dollar is waning…I think you can see 25% reduction in the standard of living in this country if the U.S dollar was no longer the world’s reserve currency. That’s how valuable it is.”
During the Populist Egyptian uprising and over-throw of President Hosni Mubarak in February, 2011, there was particular attention and suspicion as to the where-about of Mubarak’s billions of dollars (much of it confiscated from the donations of United States taxpayers) and how handler and spy Hussein Silem, similar to many of Mubarak cronies, played a part in the transfer of such funds.
Ibrahm Oweiss, a Georgetown University economist, warned of Zell’s connection to the 2007 shares he had in an Egyptian company that shipped natural gas to Israel. John Kosmon, Philip Shenon and David Wurmser of the Delphi Global Analysis Group referred to it as a $220 million energy bet in the middle east, and Zell held a 10 percent stake in the natural-gas consortium, the East Mediterranean Gas Company (www.nypost.com. Feb 12, 2011, John Kosmon. USA Today, Philip Shenon, Feb. 16, 2011. Content.usatoday.com, “Tracking Mubarak’s Fixer”).
Seemingly unphased by any crisis, in June, 2011, Sam Zell continued his climb in commercial real estate: Zell had just purchased a controlling stake in a 40-story office tower in Chicago – an estimated $106 million value.
THE FUND FOR FULD (Otherwise known as Fuld’s Foolish Funds)
Dick Fuld came to be known as “The Gorilla of Wall Street”; steering Lehman Brothers deep into the business of subprime mortgages, bank-rolling lenders across the country that were making convoluted loans to questionable borrowers. Fuld used several highly questionable accounting practices enabling him to earn $469 million in stock sales between 2000 and 2008. Said Reuters on April 29, 2010: “Oliver Budde, former Lehman lawyer, spent many years drafting the bank’s compensation disclosures and hiding the redirected a stock unit (RSU) component of Fuld’s pay. An email sent on April 14, 2008 to the SEC’s Enforcement Division never heard anything (never brought a response – SE).”
Dick Fuld studied business and he received a B.A. and a M.B.A from the University of Colorado at Boulder and the New York University’s Stein School of Business. After being discharged from the Air Force, he began his career with Lehman in 1969 as a commercial paper trader. His competitive nature aided his Advancement to Power. At the time of his departure he had worked 40 years in the industry; another ‘gorilla’ pouncing his chest in defiance.
Tyler Durden (www.zerohedge.com) spoke out on the Shadow Economy on March 11, 2010: “Lehman employed off-balance sheet devices, known within Lehman as ‘repo 105’ and ‘repo 108’ transactions to temporarily remove securities inventories from its balance sheet, usually for a period of seven to ten days, and to create a materially misleading picture of the firm’s condition in the late 2007 and 2008,” Durden went on to say, “Lehman accounted for repo 105 transactions as ‘sales’…by recharacterizing the repo 105 transactions as a ‘sale,’ Lehman removed the inventories from its balance sheet.”
Barry Ritholtz went further when he said on March 14, 2010 (www.ritholtz.com):
“In addition to tarnishing what little name Fuld had, the tentacles of the (Anton R.) Valukas (2,200 page) Report are reaching the NY Fed and Geithner, Ernst and Young, even Linklaters, a firm in the UK that blessed repo 105 for the British subsidiary of LEH as kosher.”
“….the report made a strong case that Lehman was hiding the truth in the months before it fell,” said Maria Bartiromo, “(It used) a device called repo 105 in the second quarter of 2008 to move $50 billion off its balance sheet….in repo 105 (it) was Lehman (which) recorded it as a sale and no longer had any record of the assets on its balance sheet. Nor did the firm disclose repo 105.”
ALSO LEGAL ADVISOR TO….
Portfolio Magazine titled Fuld as the worst CEO of all time. But case after case of Wall Street leniency throughout the 2000s emboldened them to rob. Lehman Brothers lawyer Oliver Budde discovered cooked books time and again and even turned in proxy statements and hid accounting to the SEC, only to be ignored or misled. The law firm of Simpson, Thacter and Bartlett hid additional Fuld salary of $263 million in the fine print. Later, this same law firm received a lucrative contract to serve as federal legal advisor to the TARP bailout.
There was six solid months that they could have moved against Fuld, but didn’t. Concealed also was $50 billion dollars in loans. Fuld told Representative Henry Waxman during the House Government Oversight Committee hearings that he had earned a paltry $310 million (a grating Hooversville amount in Wall Street dollars), when actually it was $529 million. Said Oliver Budde, comparing the Justice Department’s lack of zeal to prosecute Fuld as compared to the perjury of sportsman Roger Clemens: “At least Roger didn’t screw over the world…green flag on a new stealing season.”
Wild parties and wild money seemed to be part and parcel of the pre-2008-2009 ‘gang’ on Wall Street (reminiscent of the ‘roaring twenties’). Ex-hedge funder Raj Rajaratnam held eager parties as he hobnobbed with big shots the day before his arrest. He boasted of being “the last man standing.” He controlled 130 employees, held $7 billion in assets and masterminded the biggest insider trader ring since the late 1980s.
He went from a net worth of $1.5 billion in 2009 to $700 million in October, 2010, along with 13 counts of Conspiracy and Securities Fraud.
RIOTOUS AND ROWDY
For his 50th birthday, Raj chartered planes and flew 70 friends he called the Raj Tribe (The Riotous Rowdy, Rebellious Raj Tribe, said their T-shirts) to a birthday bash. On a Manhattan cruise, Danielle Chiesi, a well-coiffed blonde consultant for Bear Stearns, took to the dance floor to demonstrate her allure. A year earlier, Raj joined in a strip poker game hosted by Salomon Smith Barney of boys and girls alike.
Speaking of a similar mood in the crash of 1929, Lucy Moore could have just as easily been speaking of 2008, when she wrote in AnythingGoes, “and so the crash came, arriving with a kind of surrealistic slowness – so gradually that, on the one hand it was possible to live through a good part of it without realizing what was happening, and, on the other hand, it was possible to believe that one had experienced and survived it when in fact it had no more than just begun.”
Black Friday – 1929
(“Dr. No: ‘The Americans are fools. I offered my services, they refused. So did the East. Now they can pay for their mistake.’ Bond: ‘World domination. The same old dream. Our asylums are full of people who think they’re Napoleon. or God.’” – DR. NO, 1962.)
NO ATTENTION TO HISTORY: OPERATION MELTDOWN
(“The bomb would irradiate all the gold inside the building and make it unusable….international liquidity would seize up, and the Western trade and monetary system would collapse.” Auric Goldfinger, 1964, GOLDFINGER, describing Operation Meltdown.)
“Increasingly, policy makers and legislators seemed to overlook the fact that our under regulated Wall Street could create havoc that wasn’t confined to the financial system itself but stretched well into the broader economy and society,” said Suzanne McGee in ChasingGoldmanSachs.
Dr. Ron Paul, a Republican member of Congress from Texas, said on April 27, 2010, Socialism vs. Corporatism, that calling President Obama a Socialist was not entirely accurate: Socialism is a system where the government directly owns and manages business; Corporatism is a system where businesses are nominally in private hand, but are in fact controlled by the government – they act in collusion with their favored business interests with policies that cater to interests in a monopoly position to the danger of “both competitors and consumers.” Obama is a cunning version of Socialism-Plus-Corporatism.Hitler had a similar scheme during the rise of the Nazi party whereby he was funded by international corporate concerns.
Author Jim Marrs saw this culmination in the New World Order promised by Adolf Hitler and signed off by President H.W. Bush. These Globalists are above petty nationalism and are now guided by what Janine Wedel spoke of in ShadowElite as “flexions” who manipulate global economics as “poker chips” in some vast, unseen, pokergame — or some Ponzi Scheme of which they stand aloofandabove — and utilize to their own advantage.The Rockefellers, Jack Schiff, Elihu Root, J.P. Morgan, The Harriman family, 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.
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.”
Some of the 2008 Wall Street ‘Gang’ Swearing
A DARK ALLIANCE
In 1980s, investigative reporter for the SanJoseMercuryNews, Gary Webb, discovered and exposed such a DarkAlliance that existed between the Nicaraguan drug cartels and the cocaine distribution of Crack smuggled into the U.S in defiance of the Boland Act: such operations were with the aid of the CIA, and the Reagan Administration, who shielded such clandestine operations in order to raise money for the Contras.
Webb came under heavy fire from various groups and unsympathetic agencies for exposing suchan insidiouscabal. He, despite this, received a Pulitzer Prize. Unfortunately, he died from two gunshot wounds to the head. They said he committed suicide.
The mobsters Giancana’s spoke of this era: “For a serious student of history, there is good reason to pause at Mooney’s saga of corruption.There is also good reason to question whether such immorality continues to exist in this country, reaching into our nation’s highest office…Sadly; it may very well be that this is, indeed, the case.To wit: the Pentagon Papers; Richard Nixon’s Watergate; the Vatican bank scandal; the Iran-Contra affair; the graft and CIA involvement in the case of the Philippines’s Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos; the Manuel Noriega-CIA connection in Panama, and the BCCI; all bits and pieces perhaps of a much bigger and more sinister puzzle. But all bearing the stamp of the CIA’s entanglement with organized crime…Most of those who were involved in the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy have been murdered…,” DoubleCross, Sam and Chuck Giancana, 1992, Warner Books, Inc., 1271 Avenue of the Americas, New York, N.Y. 10020, p. 356.
The Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), for example, were found guilty of “massive money laundering” and other financial crimes nearing $20-billion-dollars. They did this by avoiding regulation and customs and operating in secret. Even to this day, it is not “completely understood” as to how they skirted the law and hid.
A Few of the 2008 Corporate Gangsters Testifying
Similar alliances were highlighted in a barrage of such genre speaking on such “pipelines” (such as) in the books Octopus: The LongReach ofthe InternationalSicilianMafia (Claire Sterling, W.W. Norton and Company, New York, N.Y. 1990), Black MarketBillions (Hitha Prabhakar, FT Press/ Pearson. http://www.ftpress.com. 2011), and Octopus: TheSecretMarketand WallStreet’s WildestCon (Guy Lawson, Crown Publishing Group, Random House, 2011, http://www.crownpublishing.com): “…not every culprit confessed or was easily caught.”
CATCHING THE CULPRITS
The inability for the Federal Department of Justice and other fellow law-enforcement-agencies to successfully jail the upper-echelon players and topnotch crooks in this Worldwide Financial Caper raised many questions as to their sincerity or capabilities; for one thing the ‘shadow’ progenitors are very illusive. One law firm has taken the “tiger-by-the-tail,” so-to-speak, by upping the political ante: on or around October 27, 2012, the Spire Law Group LLP, under the managing partner of James N, Fielder, announced a $43-trillion-dollar-lawsuit in the United States District Court against suspects and person-of-interest involved in the financial fiasco, including Robert Rubin, Timothy Geithner, Vikram Pandit, Jon Corzine and others.
Unfortunately, many names are left out of the lawsuit; but, as usual, not enough as to prevent unsavory and nefarious events from happening, perhaps indicative of the quagmire that is offered to anyone braveenough to investigate and prosecute criminals thus powerful.
(Other persons, such as Gary Webb, have also been victimized; a long list of Kennedy Assassination-victims is catalogued in HitList: AnIn–depthInvestigationinto theMysteriousDeathsof WitnessestotheJFKAssassination, Richard Belzer and David Wayne, Skyhorse Publishers, 2013.)
The Spire law firm has been counter-sued; and one other thing………
DEATH BECOMES INTRODUCTION
CNBC Executive Kevin Krim publicized the lawsuit on a news broadcast for the whole world to see, and in Jungian fashion, in that spooky world of synchronized phenomena, shortly following the broadcast, his wife came home to find their children murdered by their nanny. It was totally unexpected, the nanny loved and cherished the children, and the parents showered gifts on the caretaker. It seemed a happy family. Investigative reporter Craig Hulet told host John B. Wells on the Coast to Coast radio program on November 8, 2012, that she must have had unusual strength to stab her and the children in such Manchurian Candidate fashion; the best that could be envisioned so far was the nanny’s complaint about being forced to “do more house work.” It surely didn’t seem quite in character.
Reporter Craig Hulet
The nanny, Celia Ortega, had been described as a rather gregarious woman who greeted others with “hello neighbor” and “God bless you” and told others she was “happy, happy, happy” to soon visit her homeland. It was only a few days, maybe a couple of weeks before the murders, which she seemed confused at times and spoke of being “weird.” Therewasnogoodmotiveforthemurders.
Freelance investigators that have seen this scenario played out many times before pointed their fingers to Remote Mind Control. A sending unit could be at some distance, they said, and a Voice to Skull (V2K) device sending targeted Magnetic Scalar Waves in the 11 to 15 HZ ELF range could force riotous behavior if pinpointing the adrenal cortex and brain stem.There would be an over-production of norepinephrine, causing adrenergic reaction. It would be complete control, if the targeted DNA resonance was struck. Such experiments have been in progress in Private Intelligence Sectors around the globe.
Zen Gardner said in “The Relentless Invasion of Our Minds” (September 20, 2012) that the Department of Defense had a system called SSSS or S-guad (squad) known as Silent Subliminal Presentation System that utilized subliminal programming over ultra-high frequency (UHF)broadcast waves: projected inaudible messages directly into the subconscious human mind. HAARP and MEDUSA (Mob Excess Deterrent Using Silent Audio) are other programs; said Judy Wall of Resonance Magazine, that: “….silently triggers the same basic emotion in another human being.”
BLACK CREVICES (In the Garden of Sin.)
The attorneys for Spire, LLP spoke in muted whispers on Internet chat links: “Still no relief from bank misconduct. Why, again, have banks not been held accountable?” Or, even the more crypticmurmur: “As long as the roots are not severed, all is well….and all will be well….in the garden….”
Former CIA Operative and Mind Control Techno-icon, Dr. RobertDuncan, told Governor Jesse Ventura on the topic of government “Voice of God Weapons,” often used for torture of victims: “They hide – hide in the darkcrevices of ourgovernment.”
“ONE NATION, UNDER ELITIST CONTROL”
Those ‘blackest places’ – those ‘murkycrevices’ – those ‘darkfissures’ are in the recesses of rotten, corrupted human hearts, and have been that way for some time:
F. Brunner and Sean D. Carr outlined the roots of the problem in their book ThePanicof1907 (John Wiley & Sons, 2007). Credit default swaps were then called “bucket shops” – and for nearly 100 years were outlawed as a felony; surely, known by Greenspan and Gramm: “Their crime was one of foreknowledge,” said CanaryPapers and Marin. John McCain embraced these giant betting parlors, and he still does, as surely as the Bush Administration protected and threatened to veto any attempt to regulate the credit default swap market. We can call it fascism, communism, plutocracy when trillions of dollars are spread by the government to cover and payoffsleazycasinobetsofcapitalists.
On June 5, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt entered America into bankruptcy and into the hands of 115 creditors in receivership and new government securities as monetized debt; effectively, America had become The New World Order.
“Bond said angrily, ‘Shut up, Marc-Ange. If you think I’ll take a million pounds from you or from anyone else you’re mistaken. I don’t want my life to be ruined. Too much money is the worst curse you can lay on anyone’s head. I have enough.’” James Bond, speaking to ‘Spectre’ villain, in OnHerMajesty’s SecretService; Signet Books, 1963.
“Money, get away Get a good job with more pay and you’re O.K. Money, it’s a gas Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash New car, caviar, four star daydream Think I’ll buy me a football team.
Money, get back I’m alright, Jack, keep your hands off my stack Money, it’s a hit Don’t give me that do goody good bullshit I’m in the hi-fidelity first class travelling set And I think I need a Lear jet
Money, it’s a crime Share it fairly, but don’t take a slice of my pie Money, so they say Is the root of all evil today But if you ask for a rise it’s no surprise that they’re Giving none away, away, away.”
H.P. Albarelli, Jr.’s journey into the strange quirks and oddities he had discovered about the many people somehow associated with the assassination of President John Kennedy on November 22, 1963 is referred to as “high strangeness and synchronicity.” Michael Petro referred to it as “curious scraps of information.” Indeed, the numerous references to the many faces somehow connected to Kennedy (Lee Oswald, the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA], the Mob, the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI], and others) were often a bog of facts and comments, though tantalizing and dramatic, still seemed to be a jungle of confusing loose ends.
The early part of the book was an attempt in tracing the dawn of psychiatry in the 1940s and 1950s leading to Intelligence Programs such as the CIA’s top-secret Projects MK/Naomi, MK/Ultra, and Project Artichoke.
“The CIA and the military, which were quickly drawn to the Program,” said Abarelli, “were becoming intrigued with the possibilities of creating what were then referred to as ‘aggressive soldiers’ and now are called ‘super soldiers.’”
Albarelli outlined a number of covert Intelligence Programs that could have been the bedrock for “Manchurian Candidate” experiments of young children and the populace in general. Fort Detrick’s Special Operations (SO) Division is mentioned, the Office of Strategic Operations (OSS), agent George Hunter White, and the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN).
Mind Control Techniques
The author suspected that Oswald could likely have been an early victim of such programs while at a detention center called Youth House. Oswald could have possibly entered into a psychotronic relationship with psychiatrists and covert operations. Doctor Milton Kurian and Dr. Renatus Hartogs were psychiatrists that connected with Oswald at Youth House. Hartogs had previously worked at the Allen Memorial Institute, Montreal, Canada, where Doctor D. Ewen Cameron, in the mid-1950s under a covert MK/Ultra contract with the CIA, “conducted a series of horrific drug and sensory deprivation experiments on unwitting patients.”
Military Special Operations
New York Post reporter Joseph Wershba questioned Dr. Hartogs on December 14, 1967, as to if Oswald could have been a Manchurian Candidate (referring to a 1962 film on controlled soldiers). Although his log seemed to dismiss such an allegation, Hartogs moved in circles of covert ML/Ultra and MK/Naomi and the “drug parties” of Dr. Harold A. Abramson. Dr. Hartogs was an “aficionado” of magic and a covert contractor for the CIA. He was acquainted with magician John Mulholland who wrote a manual for CIA operatives containing instructions on how to “surreptitiously dose unwitting people with drugs, and how to perform other feats of slight-of-hand.” The Hartogs/Freeman book, TheTwoAssassins, told of Oswald’s comments to his mother Marguerite concerning his return from Russia: “Mother, not even Marina knows why I returned.”
Dr. Hartogs’s sex scandal with his patient Julie Roy seemed to coincide with the sexual scandal of Canadian psychiatrist Dr. James Tyhurst. Tyhurst associated with neuropsychologist Dr. Donald O. Hebb and “both attended a seminal 1951 meeting,” said Abarelli, “which included participants from the CIA – to discuss early advancements in sensory deprivation and brainwashing.”
Sinatra’s Movie Portrayal of a Manchurian Candidate
Investigator Dick Russell noted Hartogs’s interest in hypnotism (p. 53), as told by Dr. Milton V. Kline, an authority on hypnotism and CIA cohort on Project Artichoke and MK/Ultra. Kline also disclosed that Hartogs, along with Dr. Sidney Malitz (a psychiatrist at the New York State Psychiatric Institute [NYSPI]) and Dr. Paul Hoch (NYSPI research director) were involved in a number of covert contracts with the CIA and the U.S Army “to perform experiments with psychosurgery, electroconvulsive therapy, LSD, mescaline, and other drugs.” Hartogs worked with Malitz on some of these experiments. Dr. Malitz worked with Fort Detrick’s Special Operations Division. These experiments were with unwitting patients, “children and teenagers.” Harold Blauer died because of such experiments. The CIA selected a group of 100 patients to join in these episodes (p. 35). Lee Harvey Oswald was absent from school for at least 50 days while in New York City.
In the early 1950s, hypnotist George Estabrook wrote to CIA director Allen Dulles about the merits of hypnosis in covert operations. “The CIA, U.S Army Fort Detrick, the Edgewood Arsenal, and the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) funded many of these contracts. Chief among these physicians were: Drs. Bernard Withens, Harold Esecover, and Harold A. Abramson.”
Laboratory at Fort Detrick
Dr. Lauretta Bender, a child neuropsychiatrist at the New York City Bellevue Hospital, experimented extensively on children using electroshock treatment, “DE patterning” and “annihilation.” Also involved was Dr. D. Ewen Cameron, who would eventually head the MK/Ultra subproject 68. Dr. Leon Eisenberg spoke of Bender’s patients in these experiments as “…psychotic and perhaps worse off than before the treatment.”
Albarelli ventured through several interesting episodes that the reader would best explore. One such incident concerned Marguerite Oswald’s interview with Davis Eugene Boster, a lifelong Foreign Service officer and covert CIA operative within the State Department. At one point, he was a staff assistant to Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. The interview also included State Department employees Denman F. Stanfield and Edward J. Hickey. Part of the conversation went:
Marguerite: “Now I know you are not going to answer me gentlemen, but I am under the impression that my son is an agent.”
Boster: “Do you mean a Russian agent?”
Marguerite: “No, working for our Government, a U.S agent.”
Marguerite also explained to the Warren Commission: “And this is the way I think, because I happen to know all of the other things that you don’t know – the life and everything…And I can almost back it up with things…yes, sir, I think my son was an agent. I certainly do.” (p. 64)
Oswald was stationed at Atsugi Naval Air Base, Japan, a huge underground 50-acre CIA Field Installation, 1957-1958, at a time when Operation Artichoke physicians and technicians conducted “enhanced interrogations” at the base.
MULTI-DIMENSIONS of MEANING
Albarelli told of Oswald’s appearances at East Louisiana State Hospital. He also went through episodes involving psychiatrists Dr. Robert G. Heath, Dr. Frank Silva and Dr. Alfred T. Butterworth and their contributions to psychotronics. Albarelli told about the further mysterious workings of Arcacha Smith, David Ferrie, Ferrie’s Civilian Air Patrol (CAP), detective Jack S. Martin, CIA operative June Cobb, and a mysterious Rose Cherami who also had been a patient at the East Louisiana State Hospital in 1961.
“The Oswald sighting at the East Louisiana State Hospital seems cut and dry, but as with most events concerning Oswald,” said Albarelli, “the facts surrounding dwell in another realm of ambiguity and interconnectedness, an alternate universe clouded by high strangeness where everything has multidimensions of meaning and truth.”
Albarelli had an interesting chapter on Rose Cherami (Melba Christine Marcades), mystery woman, hooker, and drug addict, who was committed to the East Louisiana State Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi following an auto accident on Highway 190. The state hospital was infamous in the annals of the Kennedy assassination. Rose Cherami seemed to have been housed in several CIA-infiltrated facilities over the years. Louisiana detective Lt. Francis Paul Fruge investigated Cherami the day before the Kennedy assassination. While in the hospital, Cherami told Dr. Don Bowers that Kennedy was going to be murdered in Dallas.
Movie Depiction of Rose Cherami
Cherami had once worked for Jack Ruby in Dallas as a stripper and “drug courier.” She said he had seen Oswald with Ruby. She also contended that Ruby was involved in the planned assassination. Rose Cherami died from another auto accident on September 4, 1965.
Dallas police were not interested in Cherami’s testimony (p. 97), but Rose had quite a bit to say about drug trafficking in Texas. Albarelli continued into her career that connected “to yet another unsolved murder – that of Houston police detective Martin A. Billnitzer – and therefor to the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, George Hunter White, and the CIA…”
The Texas drug-trafficking scenario involved corruption throughout the state, CIA “Executive Action” contractor Jean Pierre Lafitte, CIA officials in “hypnotism training,” MK/Ultra, the findings of New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, and the criminal involvement of Sergio Arcacha Smith and Emilio Santana.
“Billnitzer apparently committed suicide (shot himself twice) in his office the morning after being interviewed (by police investigators)…” (p. 115) “…drugs put back on the street through the back door of the Houston Police Department but Billnitzer expanded his chief objective was to get these drugs off the streets permanently…” (p. 103)
KALEIDIOSCOPE of FACES
The book was filled with bits, pieces and history of Intelligence operations and spies galore: a kaleidoscope of faces and bodies merged into each other as mingledsmokefromthelanternsofcrime: Drug dealers, corrupt law enforcement, CIA contract assassins, mafia mercenaries, and “shadow government agents”:
• CIA operative David Sanchez Morales.
• CIA operative Charles William Thomas.
• Dr. Sidney Gottlieb.
• Operative Vida June Cobb.
• Project Bluebird.
• Operative David Atlee Phillips.
• JM/Wave CIA station in Miami, Florida.
• ZR/Alert and ZR/Awake (hypnotically-controlled operations).
• Operative Nicholas Deak.
These subjects appear to be, at times, a confusing conglomeration that often seemed contradictory to each other.
Journalist Dale E. Basye promulgated that Oswald was hypnotized in Russia; Eric Ritzek claimed he used hypnotism on Oswald in America. There were many loose ends in the book. By the time a reader got to the end of the book, much of it appeared to be confetti. It would take some extra research by the reader to make further steps and further trails. Alberelli had certainly gathered a lot of information, but he had done nothing to make sense of the chips as they lay.
OSWALD in MEXICO
An example of this quizzical magic involved in the Kennedy tales was the question as to whether Oswald was a house party at the Ruben Duran home in Mexico City on October 1 or 2, 1963. There was always a question if it was really Oswald. Multiple descriptions seemed to indicate that it might be Oswald.
Adventurer and criminal Robert Clayton Buick claimed to have met Oswald at the Hotel Luma in late September 1963. Oswald supposedly referred to himself as Alex Hidell (which was said to be in another assassination book as an accepted code-name for CIA operatives). Oswald spoke of Kennedy as “going to get hit” and that “ultimate morality is to remove the head of the creature and replace it with another.”
While these statements seemed to indict Oswald as a knowing criminal in the planned assassination, we also knew that Intelligent Operatives hid behind fallacious “cover” stories at times in their “directives”; if, indeed, this person ‘was’ Oswald and not a doppelganger or “body double.”
The Use of Doppelgangers
In the notes on page 452, Albarelli quoted an email message from Robert Clayton Buick on this matter: “…Oswald was seemingly more revealing (in a sense) trying to tell me (in reality) to stop this plot to kill the President and I truly believe this after I have reviewed this encounter over and over again and researched his specific intent throughout the many years.”
This quote seemed to fit accurately the undercover aspirations of a covert Intelligence Operative trying to be a hidden spy in the plot.
During Oswald’s alleged trip to Mexico City in September-October, 1963 he met CIA operative June Cobb and Eunice Odio. A former intelligence operative told Albarelli to heed the Rosicrucian Order. Odio had been Second Grade Superior of the Temple. Albarelli found significance in the fact that the last book Oswald had read before the assassination of Kennedy was TheSharkandtheSardines by Juan Jose Arevalo and translated by June Cobb and Raul Osequeda. The reason why Oswald, speculated Albarelli, held the book out of the library so long was Oswald’s prospective meeting with CIA Operative June Cobb and her Rosicrucian friends in Mexico City. The book was issued to Oswald on November 6, 1963 but not returned until February 1964.
The Rosicrucian Order was a secret society from the early 1600s and the Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Crucis was founded in 1915. An esoteric order, the religion was said to have influenced the Freemasons. The Rosicrucians were followers of the Brethren of the Rose Cross, with origins that date back to the early seventeenth century. Well-known Mexican and Latin American people helped fill the ranks, as well as a history of secret societies in the world of spies and spooks. Alberelli saw this as another synchronism.
(“The beliefs of the Rosicrucian Order were described as Gnostic, occult and cabalistic in nature. This is due to the fact that members of the Rosicrucian Order believed that true knowledge of the universe can only be known by the elite, who in turn had a responsibility to share this knowledge with the masses.”)
Investigator Paul Dale Roberts, who was working in the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) and the Drug Suppression Team (DST) in May 1975, also held a Top Secret clearance in Special Background Investigation (SBI) as an Intelligence Analyst, and later received an H-Identifier with Opposing Forces (OPFOR). Roberts discovered a Rosicrucian connection with infamous killers.
In an interview with the cousin (nicknamed by Roberts as Texas Slinger) of the nefarious killer Richard Munoz Ramirez (The NightStalker), the cousin divulged that Ramirez was a member of the Rosicrucians. Roberts additionally uncovered that Sirhan Sirhan, the murderer of Robert Kennedy, was also a member. Sirhan allegedly had been a Manchurian Candidate assassin-tool.
Dr. Rauni-Leena Luukanen-Kilde, M.D., scientist, author, investigator and former Chief Medical Officer of Finland spoke of the mysterious history of psychotronics and mind control:
Dr. Rauni-Leena Luukanen-Kilde
“Mind control techniques can be used for political purposes. The goal of mind controllers today is to induce the targeted persons or groups to act against his or her own convictions and best interests. Zombified individuals can even be programmed to murder and remember nothing of their crime afterward.
“This ‘silentwar’ is being conducted against unknowing civilians and soldiers by military and Intelligence agencies,” continued Luukanen-Kilde. “Since 1980, electronic stimulation of the brain (ESB) has been secretly used to control people targeted without their knowledge or consent. All international human rights agreements forbid non-consensual manipulation of human beings – even in prisons, not to speak of civilian populations.”
After all the meanderings in the book, perhaps the most interesting depiction was in the front of the book; this scene was from another assassination tome altogether, D.M. Thomas, Flying intoLove, 1992:
“He thought he would go down to the lunch-room and have a coke. They must be in the building by now. It was so easy to hide, with such confusion, so many stacks of crates here, there and everywhere. They might even be hiding in a crate, with the rifles. Including his Mannlicher-Carcano and three of four bullets they’d fired from it. He had no idea who ‘they’ were, only that one of them looked like him, as it happened.”

The lone gunman that we hear about in assassinations, assassination attempts, school shootings, etc. is mind-controlled individuals who had been ‘programmed’ to carry out those missions. Ted Bundy, the ‘Son of Sam’ serial killer David Berkowitz, Oswald…Oswald did not actually shoot Kennedy, but he was part of the process. Timothy McVeigh (He was a patsy and had help), the Columbine shooters, John David Chapman, Sirhan Sirhan, etc. were mind controlled individuals who were programmed to perform these killings. Jonbenet Ramsey easily could have been a mind control victim; Patsy Ramsey almost surely was.

The plans to create a mind controlled worker society have been in place for a long time. The current technology grew out of experiments that the Nazis started before World War II and intensified during the time of the Nazi concentration camps when an unlimited supply of children and adults were available for experimentation.
We have heard about the inhumane medical experiments performed on concentration camp prisoners, but no word was ever mentioned by the media and the TV documentaries of the mind control experiments.

The Shark and the Sardines. Juan José Arévalo Translated from the Spanish by June Cobb and Raul Osegueda. Published 1961 by L. Stuart in New York. Written in English.
H.P. Albarelli Jr. is a writer and investigative journalist who lived in Vermont, Florida, and London (U.K.). He has written numerous feature articles about the 9-11 anthrax attacks; biological warfare; the American intelligence community; the death of Frank Olson; the Cuban revolution; and social and political affairs. Some of his work can be found at the World Net Daily, CubaNet, Counterpunch, and Crime Magazine websites, as well as in numerous magazines and newspapers.
“in the seized documents were plans for a global revolution and it was clear this was to be accomplished by clandestine groups using secrecy and deceit. It was also clear that was to be the work of only the most illuminated (educated) well-placed individuals” (p. 211)
“According to many theories today, while the Bavarian Illuminati may have faded away, its goal and doctrines continue on through various individuals and groups seeking to control the world.” (p. 327)
“There appears to be something darker behind the effort to subjugate humanity and wreck the environment than simple corporate greediness or political power grabs. Even animals know not to dirty their own nests. Why would corporate leaders want to kill the Golden Goose that provides golden eggs by poisoning the Earth and killing its inhabitants?” (p. 345)
Best-selling author of CROSSFIRE: THE PLOT THAT KILLED KENNEDY, RULE BY SECRECY, and several others, the late Jim Marrs takes us on one of his final excursions into the largely unknown, infamously hidden cabal called the “Illuminati.”
(THE ILLUMINATI: THE SECRET SOCIETY THAT HIJACKED THE WORLD, Jim Marrs, Visible Ink Press, 43311 Roy Road , #414, Canton, MI 481187-2075, www.visibleink.com, 734-667-3211, 2017, 410 pages, $19.95.)
The Late Jim Marrs
All studies have a beginning and an origin of their beliefs and science. For the Illuminati, origins must go far back into history, mythology, religion and even technology, and how it composed the structure of our present-day. Following the dots through history are complex, as Marrs will testify, and Erdmann will simplify and stay connected to the content as best can be done..
Control: Far Back in History.
“This theology included the desire to control others, to operate in secrecy, and adhere to the idea that the end justifies the means. Thus, the shadow of the Illuminati has been cast right up to the events of today.” (p. xxvi)
Over 600 secret societies, said Adam Parfrey of Feral House, operate about the globe, some are Druidic colleges. But Marrs says that the deepest secrets are traced back to ancient Sumer in Mesopotamia, called Shinar and the Sumerian city of Uruk. Sumer issued basics for all ensuing western cultures. Sumerians constructed great water works and pyramidal structures called ziggurats.
The Code of Hammurabi, says Marrs, was issued by the Sumerian King Ur-Nammu along with the sexagesimal math, spherical astronomy, the first calendar, geometry, and the Platonian Year that inspired secret societies. The “Book of Light” told of “mysteries of wisdom” that reached Noah, Abraham, and other descendants. All “came from beings who came from the skies.” (p. 6) According to author Zacharia Sitchin, these were “beings who could fly through the air” —-the Anunnaki—-who possessed genetic engineering, interplanetary travel, technological formulas, and, perhaps, atomic physics and could produce atomic blasts.
Philip Gardiner and Gary Osborn, relays Marrs, speak of the “Shining Ones” who “fought amongst themselves using humans as pawns.” “The secret doctrines of the Shining Ones have steered the developments of humankind for possibly 50,000 years, and continues to do so today,” said Gardiner and Osborn.
Knowledge of the Shining Ones were passed to the list of Sumerian Akkadians and subsequent pantheon of “gods.” “Anyone who failed to offer allegiance to his or her one true god was castigated as a blasphemer, heathen, devil worshipper or worse,” says Marrs.
“The Earth, or at least the Near East, was devastated at some point, either through natural cataclysm or some prehistoric war,” says Marrs. “The Anunnaki gods withdrew from overt human contact.” (p. 10)
This “golden age” was followed by the ‘Fall’ of mankind, and only “Illuminated ones” relayed this knowledge by means of “Mystery Schools”: The Knights Templars and the “inner core of modern Freemasonry and on into the Illuminati.” (p.12)
Erik von Daniken and Zecharia Sitchin each offered works about the “messengers,” the Anunnaki, who initiated “organized religion” with “rulers over humanity” as an “administrative body” who also “got a taste of wealth and power.’’ Mystery Religions such as the Freemasons and Rosicrucians dated back to ancient Babylon and the Tower of Babel. The Anunnaki “sky gods” were instrumental in recreation of society “and invented the use of monoatomic gold.”
David Hudson discovered a mysterious “something” composed of a single atom that could be made to disappear through a process of “disaggregating,” a strange white powder which he called “Orbitrary Rearranged Monatomic Elements (ORMEs).” Dr. Hal Puthoff found these monoatomic elements were also “superconducting,” and when heated had anti-gravitational properties in that it would ‘disappear,’ but would ‘reappear’ when cooled.
As a form of ancient Alchemy, monatomic white powder appeared to have medicinal properties that could cure cancer and AIDS and eventually explain legends of white or black magic. The Egyptian Book of the Dead called it “schefa food” in Egyptian history.
Moses (Mosis) was Tuthmosis’s son. However, any male child could not inherit the throne and had to be killed. Because Tuthmosis married Tiye who, unfortunately for her, had this son who was then floated down the Nile to be found and raised by a Jewish family and named Akhenaton.
The mystery of Moses/Akhenaton was just one of the “Mystery School” doctrines in a long line of mystery doctrines. Moses/Akhenaton was exiled. Pharaoh Ramesses II and his army chased after Moses, but the Pharaoh was destroyed near lake Timsah..
The Shining One’s Secret.
Both Akhenaton and Nefertiti had elongated skulls said to be from a lineage from the Anunnaki —-the Biblical Nephilim. The Schefa food was known as shem-an–wa by the Babylonians and mfkzt by the Egyptians. It was called manna by the Israelites.
Apparently, not only the powder, but also traces of rocks turned into glass-like material, said some researchers, indicated a superior technology in which atomic explosions had taken place, and even though “the Anunnaki had maintained their spacefaring facilities in the Sinai … (eventually) was destroyed in the atomic fires about the same time as the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.” (p. 24)
These feats were also the part of alchemy of the “Shining Ones,” and their high-spun monoatomic gold powder. Babylonian lore of moon-god Nannar traced back to Anunnaki commander Enlil and his wife Ninlil. Egyptians, such as Amenhotep III, knew of the legendary white powder known as mfkzt. Marrs says the Egyptian civilization was directly connected to that of Sumer in all sciences and the “miraculous white powdered gold.” It is noted the Biblical Methuselah of having lived almost 1,200 years.
(Marrs gives us an ‘aside’: Nazi Germany elite were in search of such “ancient relics and knowledge’’ for anti-gravity, “scientific breakthroughs,” occult practices, V-weapons, The Bell, and other “building blocks of the Universe” (p. 37).This included the atomic bomb. Many secrets remained with Obergruppenführer SS Hans Kammler, secrets going back to “the ancient astronauts.” In the Fall of 1947, these secrets were placed in the U.S government arsenal under the control of the National Security Council and Truman’s National Security Act. Anti-gravity experiments lurched even deeper into American Black Projects. That “shadow government,” Majestic 12 and MJ-12, all classed as “deniable,” “tightly controlled,” “well-organized,” and in excess of 60-billion-dollars ). (p. 44)
Gnostic Beginnings: The Elder Secrets
The “Mystery Schools” were many branches from one stim that allegedly grew multiple beliefs of central gnosis, some found in the many Holy Books of this story. This can be found, says Marrs, at Qumran and Nag Hammadi and the Dead Sea scrolls, as well as the Alexandrian cult in the first century C.E which taught about the strange beings called “Aeons” who came as messengers from the “between the heavens and earth.” Zoroastrianism and Gnosticism originated in Iran, Asia Minor, Syria, Babylon, but also carried back to Palestine and Egypt.
These schools became the basic religion of the Cathars in France, decimated by the Albigensian Crusade around 1209, with the gnosis passed onto Bavarian Illuminati.
The Cabala, the Kabbalah, the Qabalah Torah also called unto special Hebrew texts titled sefer yetzirah (Book of Creation) and the sefer hazohar (Book of Light), traced back to two versions of the Talmud , one originating in Babylon, the other to Jerusalem and the legend of Adam’s Garden of Edin with the Sumerian term Edin, talking of the first settlement of the Anunnaki in southern Mesopotamia. The heritage of said ‘doctrines’ were passed through Adam’s son, Noah, and then carried out of Sumer by Abraham with the “secrets of Enoch and the further initiation of Israel.” (p. 46)
The “Book of Raziel” tutored King Solomon and others with its ram as the “highest expression of cosmic knowingness” in ab-ram or av-ram associated with the alchemical records of Egypt, the Biblical Ham, pyramid construction, the Knights Templar and the Rosicrucian movement tracing back to Anunnaki roots. Judeo-Christian “mysteries” introduced Free Masonry, as well as the Cabala, Rosicrucianism on up to the Illuminati and further into modern groups.
Moses Mendelssohn was also a Cabalist and mentor of Adam Weishaupt (founder of the so-called Illuminati) as well as banker of Mayer Rothschild. Michael Hess was the tutor of Jacob Rothschild’s children and headed a Philanthropist school for Jewish children in Frankfort.
Five-hundred pages written by poet John Byron connected Byron to Freemasonry, the Royal Society, Jacobites, and the “Cabala Club.”
Illuminati teachings existed in the Mystery Schools of Greece and Egypt, Mithraism, Zoroastrianism, the Rosicrucians, and the Babylonian Mystery Schools.
One “Mystery School” trait was to speak in ‘codes’ because “only truly mature minds” existed in the world that could comprehend Anunnaki secrets.
“With many similar parables (stories) Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything. Mark 4:33, New International.” (p. 50)
Initiates of the Mysteries were said to be able to “communicate directly to the gods and they received replies” as the Illuminati, the Illuminati Ones, tracing back to the earliest civilization of Sumer. Sumerian cuneiforms told of a similarly Great Flood when the Anunnaki leadership realized that the planet Nibiru would return in its 3,600-year orbit causing havoc, while the Anunnaki “waited events out in orbiting evacuation ships.”
The Anunnaki science officer, Enki, and his prized assistant, Utnapishtim, the “Sumerian Noah,” with the Anunnaki gods (compressed here into the monotheistic God of the Bible) constructed a waterproof ark. In the Gilgamesh account/version Utnapishtim was told to take aboard “the seed of all living things.” Enki had been the science officer of genetic engineering with DNA samples to be used in a grand salvation of humankind. The Great Flood was more than just heavy rains, but also described darkness, colossal winds, and appeared to be a “planet-wide catastrophe.”
The “ancient schools” carried myriad parallel teachings of a virgin who had a son, gods who taught all basic sciences and did so far and wide. It was Abraham who brought Anunnakian knowledge to Palestine and Egypt, and this technology sprung up in Egypt after 3100 CE.
The Essenes were undoubtedly one of the Mystery Schools, and later a branch of the Egyptian Great White Brotherhood of Therapy including the Temple of Melchizedek (Hebrews 6; 20). Little was known of “Mystery Christianity” until the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947 hear the Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi: the Essene authors carried parts of the Old Testament that “were similar to the interpretations of Jesus’s brother James and the Jerusalem Christians.” (p. 54)
Roman Emperor Constantine quelled the various religious “conflicts” by declaring a hybrid religion to “appease all influential factions by declaring a common and unified world-religion at the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE” where he ordered destruction of all works that questioned “the newly constructed orthodoxy.” The Essenes carried on with “the hermetic traditions of the Greeks.”
An Essene Master in an Indian monastery also heralded “musical doctrines” of Greek philosopher Pythagoras was connected to Plato, Freemasonry, and the Illuminati by speaking of the Messiah as a “New World Order.” The Essenes of Jesus’s time had built around the Mason’s Trowel and other allegories of “Mystic Christianity” with texts such as The Gospel of Truth, The Gospel of Thomas, and others.
Author Nesta Webster said that the Essenes “were a secret society” clearly invested in Cabala and Cabalists. Author Laurence Gardner, however, said that the Christianity of the Roman Empire “was closer to the original teachings of Jesus than any other.”
Likewise, the Prieure de Sion (Priory of Sion) is allegedly to have been filled with Grand Masters who created the Knights Templar; but his story turned out to be a complete hoax.
“Nevertheless, it is highly significant that so many esoteric beliefs can be traced back to Egypt, Palestine,” says Marrs, “only more specifically, the ancient cultures of Mesopotamia.”
Growth and Conjoining Schools.
“The House of Wisdom,” the Roshaniya of Afghanistan, called the “enlightened ones,” “the Helpers,” had practices strikingly similar from the Illuminati ranging from abolition of private property, a Supreme Being who desired a class of perfect men and women to carry out control of the world, as well as other Illuminati plans, and in complete secrecy. “The Roshaniya believed members of the Order gained power from the spirits of dead members.” Some of the same parallels can be seen in the doctrines of Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, and the legendary Knights Templar.
Freemasonry and Knights Templars became intertwined with Cabalism, the Mystery Schools, and the deflating the Roman Catholic Church: antiestablishmentarianism.
The Jesuits, formed in 1540 by Ignatius of Loyola to be a protector and defender of the Roman Catholic Church by being an “aggressive militant force” against heresy, soon became a cult unto itself in which “Adam Weishaupt used as a template for his Illuminati.’’ Those of the privileged class who possessed true esoteric and hermetic knowledge were “savagely” persecuted by the Dominicans of the 14th century Inquisition to the point that “the last vestige of free thinking disappeared.” (p. 70)
Joining with other noted cults and secret societies, the Assassins, Assasseens, “guardian of the secrets,” with its founder Hassan bin Sabah, escaped to Egypt to be further indoctrinated in ancient secrets, including Hebrew Cabala. Hassan‘s system of apprentices was like later Masonic degrees in the Templars and Freemasons: The Illuminati and only Assassin leaders “knew the underlying truth of their Order.”
Rosicrucians were a creation of Freemasonry and the Illuminati “secret traditions reaching back into antiquity,” called the Oder of the Rosy Cross (1188). Rosicrucian Manifests, by Johahn Valentin Andreae, a German Lutheran cleric who became a spiritual counselor that connect to William of Hesse and the Rothschilds.
The Spread of Illuminati Cults.
Marrs also lists the fifteen or so secret societies that existed in the world at one time such as the Knights of the Golden Eagle, The Thule Society, and several others (pp. 75-78).
“One is the International Order of St. Hubertus, which came to public attention in February 2016 when Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia was found dead at the hunting ranch of one of the Order’s member’s in Texas.”
The Order was rooted in Catholicism in the exclusive Bohemian Grove group wherein housed members U.S Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Richard Nixon.
Another aspect was from the 1954 Bilderberg Club which had grown to great power amidst a “rotten core of bankers, royalty, arms industry, and media barons.” Inner core leaders included the Council for Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Trilateral Commission, the Council of Foreign Relations, and the 1919 Paris Peace Conference.
Edward Mandell House authored Philip Drew: Administrator which described a ‘conspiracy’ in the United States of a central bank, graduated income tax, and a plan to control both political parties; which came true in 1923 with two Institutes of International Affairs “to guide public opinion toward acceptance of a one-world government or galvanism.”
The secretive Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) was incorporated on July 21, 1921 and had financers such as J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Jacob Schiff, and corporations such as Xerox, Bristol-Meyers Squibb, Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Fund, and several others. The CFR created the Committee with thirty-seven committees in the early 1980s, which had far-reaching plans of world domination “through multinational business, international treaties, and world-government.” The CFR reached its goal through a larger ‘web’ of outside sources: The Business Enterprise, the Business Round table of the Hoover Institute, and a plethora of America’s global activists.
Journalist J. Anthony Lukas said that the CFR influence “flows as well through more intricate channels…if the Council has influence___and the evidence suggests that it does____then it is the influence its members bring to bear through such channels.”
With such as a “control hierarchy” of the CIA, CFR, and the Trilateral Commission, Journalist Robert Eringer said: “…one now in position of power…It is for this reason that the Commission has acquired a reputation for being the Shadow Government of the West.” Presidential candidate Barry Goldwater called the Trilateralists “…truly intend(ing) the creation of a worldwide economic power superior…of the nation-states involved…As managers and creators of the system they will rule the world.” (p. 82) Funding came from tax-exempt corporations, and new members had to be screened by a membership committee to make sure they had globalist views.
The Stylized Weishaupt.
The Trilateral Commission, the Freemasons and the Bilderberg Group were all part of an ongoing conspiracy with deeper levels where the Satanic influences and the power of Zionists in the globalist plot of the League of Nations and the and the United Nations connected.
Texe Marrs, a former U.S Air Force officer and University of Texas faculty member, said: “Eventually, they think that no one is able to stop or even delay their bold plot to murder—-yes, murder—-America.”
Several Trilateralists became convinced that democracy needed to be overridden, involving the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), The Department of Energy, and the Treasury for International Affairs. Closely following, Paul Volcker was made head of the Federal Reserve, and then this was followed by Alan Greenspan, both members of the CFR, TC, and the Bilderberger Group. In 2006, there was Bob Bernanke and in 2014, Janet Yellen to head the Federal Reserve.
“(The) Trilateral Commission may be following in the steps of Weishaupt,” says Jim Marrs, “and his original Illuminati.”
President Barack Obama appointed eleven Trilateral Commission appointees in his administration and 12 percent to top-level government positions.
All U.S presidents and vice presidents, six of the last eight World Bank presidents and more than half of all U.S secretaries of state and three-quarters of the secretaries of defense have been Trilateralists.
“The global banks and corporations now dominate the nation states, including the United States,” says Jim Marrs, “with no regard for due process, Congress, or the will of the people. Adam Weishaupt would no doubt approve.”
Masonic lore was derived from so-called prehistoric “gods,” as had been mentioned, who Illuminated certain individuals with their knowledge as Mystery Schools connecting Jewish and Christians religions ending with an “inner core” of Freemasonry, Knights Templar and the latest Illuminati.
These secret societies were concerned not only with political and communist issues, but also loyal bloodlines, ancient religions, and spiritualism. These also attracted corporate leaders, high-level society members, European royalty but also intelligence agencies.
The Masonic symbol “G” stood for geometry and masonry as well as ‘sacred geometry” or “gnosis.” Freemasonry predates ancient Egypt back to the construction of the biblical Tower of Babel and King Solomon’s Temple at Jerusalem.
During the Middle Ages, only guilds of stonemasons or lodges that proved “an ideal vehicle for the flow of information and the covert distribution of anti-clerical teachings”: Order of Knights Templar fleeing persecution by the church known as “speculative Masons.”
Mason Albert Pike spoke of two levels of doctrine, of which the most secretive and second level most Masons never reach. Freemasons and the Illuminati, the illuminated, of the 1700s were a blending of elder esoteric lore and mixed Cabalistic tradition. Many American presidents were also Masons, ranging from George Washington to Gerald Ford. Famous Americans from John Hancock to Hubert Humphrey were also Masons. Historical foreign Masons included Cecil Rhodes, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and many others.
Author Texe Marrs wrote that Ordo ab Chaos was a “Secret Doctrine of the Illuminati” based on German philosophies of Georg Hegel’s concept that “crisis leads to opportunity,” seen as Hegelian Problem, Reaction, Solution and that out of chaos is given advantages to reorganizing society into a new system.
Captain William Morgan (1826), a 30-year-old Masonic defector, was going to create a book exposing Masonic secrets, but was kidnapped and disappeared. It was discovered that wealthy and powerful Masons were found at every level of government and even affected the news media.
“Jacobites,” such as Sir Christopher Wren and Isaac Newton, knew that masonic lore related to Cabala wisdom-philosophy tracing it back to the ancient Babylonia, Pythagoras, Plato, Egypt, and “the shadow of King Solomon.” The Rosicrucians and Freemasons merged in 1762 and incorporated the “two pillars” of Solomon’s Temple story.
Sir Francis Bacon, said Master Mason Lawrence Gardnor, produced Masonic texts, but he also was part of the editorship of the King James Version of the Bible (KJV) in 1717. (p. 94)
Further Historical Webs: The Illuminati.
Illumined doctrine, said Polish philosopher Josef Maria Hoene-Wronski, had many associations going back into history from the Pyramids, astrologers of Rome, and the Rose-Croix Group and others called “Illumines.”
Weishaupt’s teachings were often seen as a “proto-communistic-organization” composed of noblemen, intellectuals, progressive politicians, and those involved in the Age of Enlightenment.
The 1700s were a “halcyon” age for secret societies in Europe, while Jesuits hindered Martin Luther’s Reformation. Any clericalism or book that suggested “liberal free-thinking” was forbidden. On May 1, 1776, the Bavarian Illuminati was formed by Johann Adam Weishaupt, a professor of canon law at the University of Ingolstadt in Bavaria, Germany. Johann Weishaupt read many forbidden books of the ancient mysteries, cults, paganism, and Age of Enlightenment sources.
Weishaupt went through several stages of Freemasonry: The Perfectibilists, the Rite of Strict Observance, The Teutonic Knights, The Lodge, Society of Bees. Member Franz Xaver von Zwack said that members needed to be molded: “We cannot use people as they are but, begin by making them over.”
Member and author, Adolph Franz Friedrich Ludwig Knigge, promoted the Illuminati’s growth. Illuminati member William IX employed Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild as his general agent and banker, as well as Hashanah, Mystical Cabalist and Freemason. The Rothschilds wrote in Judendeutsch to disguise their methods.
Nathan Rothschild took control of the Bank of England as well as the Rothschild fortune. Mayer’s other four sons had become central bankers in Europe.
“Acting together,” says Marrs, “the Rothschild dynasty promoted financial booms and busts and even wars to continually gain immense profits and control.”
The Bank of Cleveland, a registered Rothschild bank, loaned the money necessary for John D. Rockefeller so he could eventually buy the entire oil industry.
Author David Livingston reported that Meyer Rothschild, in 1773, had invited twelve other wealthy and influential men who represented all the thirteen bloodlines of the Illuminati, including Adam Weishaupt, to “plot to bring about a New World Order.” Adam Weishaupt emphasized the destruction of existing governments, religions, all “goyim” to be ruled ultimately by Satanic and Luciferian despotism.
The tutor for Jacob Rothschild, Michael Hess, was a devoted follower of Moses Mendelssohn, a Jewish Cabalist, who said that various Illuminati factions were out to destroy Catholicism, Christianity, and to set-up classical in-fighting. The Illuminati began waning in Florence. On June 22, 1784, the Duke of Bavaria, Karl Theodore, “issued the first of several edicts banning all such societies.”
Zionism as part of the Illuminati
Zionism began in Russia (far removed from Palestine), while others trace it back to Biblical Patriarch Abraham, who was neither a Jew nor an Arab but rather a Sumerian nobleman. The earliest history had a lot to do with a text called Deuteronomy which was the basis for the Torah and the Pentateuch or Talmud.
The Jews in Israel today are not from the Middle East but are called Ashkenazi Jews from Eastern Europe that “migrated ward from the Kazazian Empire in an area between the Black Caspian Seas” (presently called Georgia). There they entered the business of exchanging and lending money. One-third of the Khazar population, the Jews, charged interest on a home loan. This population was over-run by Scandinavian migrants called the “Rus” and the area called Russia.
Non-Jewish Khazars called themselves Ashkenazi Jews and spread across Europe and America, subject of Talmudic government with no Judahite blood. The Sabbateans or Sabbatean Franks also included a belief that the Rothschilds believed themselves as descended from the Sumerian god King Nimrod, as Albert Salomon Nimrod Rothschild noted (1922).
“From the Illuminated Freemason lodges of Germany and London, Jewish socialists Karl Marx and Frederick Engels devised the plan for communism.” (p. 143)
It was the Sabbatean Jews who started Zionism, says Marrs, and, in 1815, Zionist Second Lord Walter Rothschild, eldest son of Nathan Rothschild, declared the Belfour Declaration, which was also approved by the 1922 League of Nations. Baron Edmond de Rothschild, founded the Israel General Bank in order to gain “a foothold in the oil-rich Middle East.”
With the event of the sinking of the Lusitania and the “Zimmerman note advocating a German invasion from Mexico,” Zionists became anti-German and heralded the unfair Treaty of Versailles, the rise of Hitler, his Third Reich, and World War II.
With the help of many foreign banks and corporations, the 1930s Adolf Hitler was “consolidating” his power, thanks to Big Businesses such as the Bank of England, Ford Motor, Union Banking Corp, and many others.
A forceful exit of Jews was made by the Transfer Agreement in 1933, but the election of Hitler caused a worldwide boycott of Germany proclaimed by Jewish leaders forcing many Jews to go to Palestine. “…real Holocaust was more about destroying he Orthodox Jewry, and particularly its leadership,” says Marrs, “to further the aims of Zionism…(and) Sabbatean-Frankish Zionists…characterized as being immoral and subversive…Illuminated initiated movements like communism, Nazism, and today’s New World Order.” (p. 144)
Illuminated Proclamations of ‘Invisible’ Superiors.
Most Masons held to an upbringing to trust and revere both Church and State; others like Knigge Zwack, were “envisioning revolutionary ideals,” even from “invisible superiors,” possibly supernatural entities.
The 1782 Congress of Wilhelmsbad, the Masonic Order of Strict Observance, was discarded as well as even references to the Templars. This resulted in a great number of Illuminati as headquartered in Frankfurt Germany as the center of finance controlled by Illuminati Rothschild’s Freemasonry. Master Mason Albert Pike said in the late 1800s that the infusion of Ancient Mysteries had true explanations reserved for the adepts and the Princes of Masonry.
The Illuminati, having conquered Freemasonry in Europe, turned their attention to infiltrating the Church, partly because of the Protestant printing of the Bible since 1454 and the freedom it gave to people to read and investigate.
For the Bavarian Illuminati, the Roman Catholic Church was still controlled by lending money and largess to European royalty. The Church also “kept a close eye on the daily lives of peasant through the confessional system of the priests, which proved,” says Marrs, “to be sort of any early day National Security Agency.”
“Secrets of the ancients” were kept by the Church by word-of-mouth, clay tablets, scrolls and papyrus and the Church’s vast collection of written or printed libraries from over the centuries. Pope Clement XII condemned Freemasonry (1738) which were secretly worshipping Lucifer through “universal expression of Divine Wisdom…(by) illuminated minds.” (p. 162) The movement was first to Deism—eventually to Satanism, the “Shinning Ones.” The Old Testament was originally actions of the early Anunnaki which also had later sponsored Freemasonry teachings.
Bavarian Duke Karl Theodor issued several edicts beginning 1781 aimed to wipe-out Freemasons and the Illuminati. Weishaupt hid in Regensburg. In 1785, Pope Pius VI also published another edict causing illumines to commit patet exitus, rather than live in public. Documents in the home of Franz Zwack proved the Illuminati to be “men of disgusting morals and depraved taste dedicated to the overthrow of religion and government.”
These crackdowns caused the spread of the Illuminati to other countries such as France, Italy, England, Russia and the new America. Duke Ferdinand of Brunswick, a Grand Master of German Freemasonry, said the Illuminati “have come under the power of some very evil and occult Order, profoundly versed in science, both occult and otherwise…”
Researcher Nesta Helen Webster wrote in 1921: “Weishaupt …knew how to take from every association, past and present, the portions he required and to wield them all into a working system of terrible efficiency.” Researchers such a Texe Marrs and Ralph Epperson agreed that a “secret organization, based on wealth, race, and bloodline,” which continued to try and make economic slavery of humanity. Texe Marrs included financial backers of Karl Marx.
“Other commenters see history unfolding according to the Illuminati’s long-term plan,” says Jim Marrs. “They see wars being plotted decades in advance and designed to destroy whole nations and their elites, along with depopulation, demoralization, and the quest for power and profit.”
Revolution, Symbols, Whistle Blowers
There was no doubt that the early American colonists were greatly influenced by an Illuminati presence, their Masonic lodges traced directly back to the French Revolution and “agitators” by the cells of the French Freemasonry and the German Illuminati: A brotherhood taught by Freemasonry in secret societies, rationalism and the illumines. In 1789, and the outbreak of the French Revolution, some 266 lodges of the Masonic Grand Orient of France were established with carrying Illuminati philosophy. Their philosophy was to cause confusion and revolution such as when The Duke of Orleans bought all the grain in 1789 causing starvation.
Couriers of the secret societies spread a warning that the King intended to attack the colonies. Fear and discontent continued to rise when King Louis XVI refused to sign the Versailles Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen resulting in war in 1792 as the Reign of Terror; as Napoleon Bonaparte declared an end to the revolution, soon followed by German Elector Karl Theodor’s banning of all secret societies.
American Founding Fathers were in possession of Illuminati literature and attended existing Freemason lodges. The slogans of Enlightenment of Liberty and Equality were based on goals from Illuminati lodges in Europe. Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and other Colonists were Illuminated Freemasons. The Boston Tea Party was carried-out by members of the St. Johns and St. Andrews lodges. Many of the signatories of the Declaration of Independence were Freemasons. The growing Freemason population promoted the Anti-Masonic Party resulting in more than 2,000 lodges closing because of resigning members.
Alexander Hamilton’s and Robert Morris’s The First Bank of the United States created a government banking interest involving the Rothschilds. The Second Bank of the United States (1816) was in the Bank War of 1836 with President Jackson declaring the central bank “a curse to a republic …(as) that administering a moneyed aristocracy dangerous to the liberties of the country.”
Second Bank president, Nicholas Biddle, was an agent of Jacob Rothschild in Paris, but failed to get Congressional approval, which was succeeded by the Federal Reserve System in 1913.
With the decline of Masonic lodges also came confusion and lack of understanding of their prehistoric lore and deep traditions. Similarly, it had been disclosed by Masonic scholar Laurence Gardner that Sir Francis Bacon ‘masterminded’ the forty-six scholars who created the King James Bible in several forty-six Bacon cyphers.
True to Illuminati tradition, the Rothschilds, began financing major projects on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line. Nathan Rothschild (cotton) and the Bank of the United States. August Schoenberg (finance to both sides), August Belmont (pro-Union finance), and Solomon Rothschild (pro-Confederate finance). German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck conceded that the Illuminati’s purpose was to keep the country divided so that the Illuminati would remain in “their financial denomination over the world.” (p. 269) President Abraham Lincoln seemed aware of these mechanizations happening.
Assassin John Wilkes Booth was a member of the Knights of the Golden Circle (KGC) secret society: Founder Dr. George Wil Bickley had close ties to the French branch of The Seasons Illuminists. Confederate secretary of state Judah Benjamin was a confessed Illuminist.
A rather harsh reconstruction of the south U.S states led “to suffering under punitive economic policies into the 1960s” leading into other secret societies such as the Ku Klux Klan. However, the “planning and funding” for the revolution in Russia came from financiers in Germany, Britain, and the United States operating under Illuminati theology.” Their anti-authoritarian socialism was also part of the world revolution under communism: The International Working Men’s Association, a forerunner of communism, appeared in 1864 under the leadership of German-born Karl Marx who was part of a long line of Jewish rabbis who was adequately familiar with the Torah, the Cabala, and Illuminati theology. Marx’s goals were basically those of historical Illuminates and the wishes of the New World Order—-abolition of all orderly national government, destroying inheritance and private property, national sovereignty, as resembled in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion cherished in the Nazi Party.
These were all models of German philosopher Georg Hegel and his “dialectic theory” of thesis-antithesis-synthesis wherein the “conflict” was purposefully created.
In 1847, Karl Marx and Fredric Engels joined the League of the Just (Engels had been converted to socialist humanism by Rabbi Moritz Moses Hess, and a Utopian socialist and Spiritualist, Robert Owen), and shortly following, Rabbi Hess suggested the League’s title be changed to the Communist Party. It was the Russian Bolsheviks who became the forerunners of Communism which was “funded by bankers in London and New York.” (p. 278)
Both Leon Trotsky and Vladimir Lenin were aided by German intelligence services which included Marx and Paul Warburg. Paul Warburg came to America in 1902 and helped create the Federal Reserve System and the Council on Foreign Relations which helped fund the war effort. In typical Illuminati fashion, “the two brothers ran the war from opposite sides” of their political agenda.
One of Leon Trotsky’s backers was Jacob Schiff, whose family had lived with the Rothschilds in Frankfort. Grandson John Schiff said that Schiff’s family spent about $20 million for the triumph of Bolshevism in Russia. Paul Warburg’s Kuhn, Loch& Company, and Warburg’s attorney, Elihu Root, did not seem to fear Communism. “Since they did not fear it,” says Marrs, “they must have controlled it.”
The Communist Party in Russia was largely composed of Jewish Zionists and Internationalists ready for any worldwide social revolution. Jewish people, however, were victimized as well. Anti-Communism had become a prime motivator behind subsequent wars of the Twentieth Century as supplied by the “synthesis” of the Cold War. “Often during the past fifty years, it was said that the United States was getting more like Russia,” says Marrs, “and Russia was getting more like the United States.” The principles of Illuminism continued “to thrive within Freemasonry and other offshore secret societies.”
Francis “Fanny” Wright, a British Illuminist in 1829, associate of the socialist Robert Dale Owen (son of Utopian socialist Robert Owen) was being developed along the lines of Illuminati principles of fomenting wars. World Revolution Movement (WRM) members and high offices of Europe’s Illuminized Freemasonry met in 1912 when the assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand brought about World War I. Assassin Serb Gavrilo Princip (June 28, 1914) and his wife Sophie were Freemasons. The assassination was performed on behalf of Milan Ciganovic, leader of the Black Hand, another related group.
Albert Pike, a Master Mason and former Confederate general, was despised for his hoax prophecy about World Wars I, II, and III in which Islam (and the Muslim Arabic world) would war against political Zionism, destroying each other. Pike appointee, Adriane Lemmi, a 33rd degree Mason, a banker and a supporter of revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi, was also into the Luciferin Society founded by Pike. The activities of Lemmi, Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin were financed by British, French, German, and American international bankers—-all dominated by the House of Rothschild.
World War II, however, was brought on “by agents and members of secret societies,” says Marrs, “connected to the Illuminati and Freemasonry in both Germany and Britain.” These were modern secret societies concerned only with wealth, power, and control. The Nazi cults were far more than just a political movement but born out of secret organizations whose goals were “the same as those found in the Illuminati and Illuminized Freemasonry,” including Bavarian Illuminati, the Germanenorden, Teutonic Knights, Oriental Templars, the Order of the Golden Dawn, and the Thule Society.
Dietrich Eckart of the National Social German Workers Party (NAZI) said that the Thule Society was deeply into Black Magic and the Master-Adept of non-human Intelligences. He also referred to Thulists that were a Society of Assassins related to the Assassins of Hassan bin Sabah and his connection to the Knights Templar. Hitler’s English nephew, William Patrick Hitler, claimed that the German Fuehrer had a background traced to the Rothschilds. Marin Anna Schicklgruber was his mother and she worked for Baron Rothschild in Vienna. In ensuing years, this was partially the reason Hitler gained enormous support he received from “the international banking fraternity” and the Rothschild family.
Author Grey Hallett in 2005 claimed that Hitler was a British agent that operated to fulfill a greater New World Order and Illuminati purpose of Hitler’s magical expansion into the Rhineland. Hitler’s war machine, Henry Makow wrote, was part of the extremely wealthy elite that had a part into a Satanic cult prying on mankind and hopes of their fine hegemony over the entire global usury at the cost of “paper and ink” and guarded by social mind control of “you and me.”
World War II accomplished goals of the Illuminati: Nations of Germany, Italy, and Japan were devastated; sixty million people died in world population; the Jewish Holocaust established Rothschild’s “world government” headquartered in Israel; peace candidates were killed; all nations that were smothered in debt succumbed into the United Nations.
The Illuminati experimented with various musical variations of ‘A’ at 440 HZ as experiments “to alter the consciousness (as) not the only mind-control technique in use today,” CIA modification; promoted consumption; hyper-sexuality; psychotronic mind manipulation; targeted individuals; sleeper agents; the Cold war; 2008 inflationary depression and corporate failings.
Rhodes Scholar, James H. Billington, wrote in his 1980 book Fire in the Minds of Men: Origins of the Revolutionary Faith, pointed at Bavarian Illuminism, while author William H. Mcilhany pointed at European Grand Orient Freemasonry, Marxist “Utopianism,” Fabian Socialism, Leninist Bolshevism, Liberalism, Progressivism, and several other “isms.”
Some people feel investigations tell of Illuminati membership today: Gaylon Ross, Mimi L. Eustis (about her father Samuel Todd Churchill).
Bill Ryan, a founder of Project Camelot, told of ‘Charles’ who revealed that thirty -three individuals, a board of directors, made decisions for controlling the world, and was on a higher level of society than the customary Illuminati. This group was in possession of ancient documents and artifacts (some of these were at the Vatican), and operated according to no calendar, just unfolding events.
Author Fritz Springmeier said that the modern Illuminati is led by thirteen prominent families: Astor, Bundy, Collins, Dupont, Freeman, Kennedy, Li, Onassis, Rockefeller, Rothschild, Russell, Van Duyn, and the Merovingians. He said that the Illuminati were in control for some time now, and the U.S Constitution ineffective since World War II,
Linda Anderson was raised in a “trans-generational Satanic family” where her father was a Grand Master of the Illuminati.
“Svali,” once a “a high-level programmer and trainee” in an Illuminati branch of government, implicated as to what was needed in their ranks was more leadership, scholarship of spiritual aspects, and the military. Svali’s lodge consisted of links to the ancient mysteries of Babylon, Egypt, and Celtic Druidism, worship of El, Baal, Astarte, Isis, Osiris, and Set. Civic values are no longer taught to children, said Svali, and such tactics went back in history. Illuminati children were taught strict secrecy. Widespread economic collapse, joined to martial law, will usher in the New World Order.
“Hidden Hand” spoke in AboveTop-Secret Forum site of the “Family” as thirteen inner circle blood-line-families oriented in antiquity as extraterrestrials, Illumines, Watchers of Advanced Beings (none were ‘reptilian’) but were “Group Souls” confused by polarity battles. Michael E. Salla of the Exopolitics Institute agreed that Hidden Hand was genuine.
Leo Lyon Zagam, Former friends of grand master of the Oracle Illuminati OriumUniversalis in Florence, Italy, said the Illumines were a “web of deceit and total world control” going back before the dawn of human civilization: They included “wealthy and influential members of society.”
Katherine “Kay” Griggs said her U.S. Marine husband colonel husband described a “clique” called “The Firm” or “the Brotherhood” and “was above the law and employed assassination.”
Ron Rosenbaum, in an investigative article for EsquireMagazine, wrote that the Skull and Bones Order at Yale University was descendant from the Bavarian Illuminati. George H.W and his son George W Bush were Bonesmen —-and Bonesmen had “achieved ranking positions within government agencies, particularly the CIA.”
The Knights of Malta is another modern secret society composed of prominent and wealthy members in highest positions of within government and intelligence agencies. The Knights, linked to the Knights Templars, sought alliance and the protection of the Vatican. The name of those joined or had connection to the Knights of Malta, included the CIA, Presidents, and numerous high-ranking individuals. The exposure of the P-2 Freemason Lodge that plotted treason against the Italian government during the Reagan years is but one such illuminati crime. Leo Lyon Zagami claimed the Knights of Malta as one of the most powerful groups known to man.
Sometimes, claims about the Illuminati are grossly lacking in documentation or hard evidence: however, “their stories are generally and remarkably consistent.” (p. 325)
“According to many theorists today,” says Marrs, “while the Bavarian Illuminati may have faded away, its goals and doctrines continue on through various individuals and groups seeking to control the world.”
Fiction and science fiction have long been thought of as more than entertainment but perceived as a means for consciousness to perceive hidden or future events without being confined to strict laboratory rigor, but also an adjunct realm of perception. This can be found in books as well as Hollywood film and esoteric symbols, showing widespread and ingrained Illuminism has become.
Its origins are ancient, its purpose has always been control and esoteric reality. As researcher Charles Fort said in his 1919 The Book of the Damned: “I think we are property. I should say we belong to something: that once upon a time, this Earth was No Man’s Land, and other worlds explored and colonized here, and fought among themselves for possession, but now its owned by something…perhaps for ages, to certain ones upon this earth, a cult or Order…as a superior slaves or overseers…” (p.348)
Jim Marrs concludes: “Whatever the answer may be, it is Illuminism, the theology of deceit and the power-seeking that the thread connecting the ancient astronauts and their knowledge to the Bavarian Illuminati and the Illuminized organization of today. And it is this Illuminism philosophy, not just the attendant societies and Orders that must be resisted for the sake of peace, harmony and true individual freedom.”
The hard ugly reality is being told and has been told in many fiction and science-fiction stories and writers: our reality has been created by those with Power that are behind the curtain and wear masks! They cry out for us to listen, but we have been so brainwashed and so controlled and so distanced from this truth that only can phantasmagoria somewhat reach us—if at all.
Authors Thomas J. Carey and Donald R. Schmitt are not new to the alien crashed disc scenario, having become veteran investigators into the July 1947 alleged Roswell, New Mexico UFO crash. In their WitnesstoRoswell book, the authors went into detailed testimony and evidence of a supposed crashed alien spacecraft on a ranch in the Roswell, New Mexico region. In this tome they branch out into the further questions: Where was the material taken, were there any witnesses, and how and why was it covered up? They also revealed Additional Roswell disclosures.

AIR TECHNICAL SERVICE COMMAND
The authors take us on a historical tour of Wright Field as the headquarters of the Material Division, a branch of the Army Air Corps, and the Technical Data Section (TDS) IN 1920, through its re-designation as the Technical Data Laboratory (TDL), and, on July 1, 1945, T-2 Intelligence, which specialized in metallurgy and reverse engineering. At the end of the war, more than 50,000 employees worked at what came to be known as the Air Technical Service Command. This encompassed Operation Paperclip of over 200 German scientists. In September 1947 the Air Corps became officially a separate branch of the military and Wright Field became the Wright–Patterson Air Force Base.
“Outside of the UFO community, few are aware of Wright-Patterson’s distinction of maintaining the U.S government’s official investigation of the UFO phenomena from 1947 until 1969,” say the authors, “with its vital experience of testing and reverse-engineering all materials both foreign and ‘from space,’ it is a historical fact that whatever crashed outside of Roswell fell under their purview.”
Part of the book concerns itself with the location of a legendary Hanger 18 housing aliens and material. The authors contend there has been confusion between “hanger 18” and “building 18.” There is, in fact, a whole series “building 18 complex” consisting of A, B, C, D, E, and G.
An Air Force Hanger 18
UFO researcher Leonard Stringfield mentioned in his Status Report II “Crash/Retrieval Syndrome” of January 1980 a “building 18F” as a possible “holdingtank.” Because of its close proximity to Hanger 23, it was often referred to as “Hanger 18.” Witnesses testify that Hanger 23 was where the UFO wreckage was first deposited before being moved to building 18’s underground levels.
A number of employees indicated that there were “extensive subterranean maze of tunnels and vaults” under Wright-Patterson: “An underground maze of secret vaults, tunnels and multi-level hangers.” Robert L. Marshall, Jr., an ironworker that held a top-secret crypto-security clearance, told of the erection of a four-level underground facility in 1947 with “secret doors, vents, and various secret compartments all located under the hanger.”
Typical Air Force Aircraft Hangers
Merlin Hansen worked as a civil engineer at Wright-Patterson during several summers in the mid-1960s. His specialty was designing and maintaining underground hanger elevator systems: downfour to sixlevelsatthebase. Merlin referred to a ‘building 18.’ Building 18F contained “four cold rooms” and “refrigeration equipment.”
HANGER 23 AND 18F
The UFO wreckage, with bodies, say the authors, were probably delivered to Hanger 23 until suitable underground passage connected to building 18 for permanent storage. Autopsies may have been carried out in the Aero Medical Facility in Building 29 and eventually to Building 18F. The bodies were moved about the AFB, possibly Building 45 (“…down long passageways past several checkpoints to a large underground vault beneath Building 45…”).
Air Force Depiction of Hanger 18
According to Robert Collins, a retired former Air Force intelligence officer who worked at Wright-Patterson’s Foreign Technology Division, the UFO material left Wright-Patterson in the 1982-1983 time frames and was sent to Area 51 (p. 49).
THE SECURITY LID
July 9, 1947, seemed to be the date that the full weight of “the problem of the flying disks” came down on the shoulders of the top echelon of both military and government officials. A drastic “cover–upmode” was instigated.
Curiosity spilled over from several high-ranking military officials such as Brigadier General F. Schulgen of the Air Intelligence Requirements Division (AIRD) in an October 28, 1947 secret five-page AIRD “draft of collection memorandum” listing “…current intelligence requirements in the field of flying saucer-type aircraft”; but by the “end of July (1947) the UFO security lid was down tight” (Captain Edward Ruppelt).
“Today, after more than 60 years, it appears likely that the U.S Air Force got nowhere on what they really wanted to know about the craft and how the materials were structured,” say the authors, “they were unable to determine how the device functions, what the intentions of the visitors were, and where they originated.”
The authors dismiss the claims of Robert Lazar and U.S. Army Colonel Philip J. Corso as far as their assertions of aiding back-engineered/retrieved UFO artifacts. They do believe there were legitimateattempts to replicate “shape recovery” properties of the Roswell crash debris. They contend the Battelle Memorial Institute in Columbus, Ohio, The New York University, The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, and the Lawrence Livermore Laboratories in California, were party to reverse-engineering.
Nitinol Memory Metal
The government’s best attempts resulted in a material known as “Nitinol.” One of the scientists involved was Elroy John Center who worked at the Battelle Institute from 1939 to 1957. Centersaidheanalyzedmetal from a crashed UFO. The debris he handled was inscribed with “glyphics.” Nitinol could be traced through two “progress reports” written in 1948 and 1949. Dr. Fred Wang was also a participant to an experiment with psychic Uri Geller to bend or “morph” Nitinol: A “clue” as to the “nature” of the original Roswell material.
THE BLUE ROOM
Chapter 5 delves primarily with the late Senator Barry Goldwater’s attempts to see a suspected “Blue Room” at Wright-Patterson. Goldwater gleaned UFO information from friends such as Air Force General William “Butch” Blanchard. In 1947, Blanchard had been the commanding officer of the 509th Bomb Group and the Roswell Army Air Field.
In the 1963-1965 time frames, Goldwater attempted to query his friend General Curtis Lemay, then an Air Force chief of staff, for information about the legendary “Blue Room.” He was quickly rebuffed in strict fashion by the Lt. General. In the 80s, Goldwater seemed to have relented in his quest somewhat and may have been somehowbriefed. The authors add additional testimony about the “Blue Room.”
The authors seamlessly add stories from other historical encounters: Captain Oliver W. “Pappy” Henderson, Captain Joseph Toth, Brigadier General Arthur Exon, Norma Gardner, Robert Thompson and several others. Special notice is made of June Crain and squadron leader Marion “Black Mac” Magruder.
Crain was present at Wright-Patterson originally by way of the U.S War Department on three occasions from 1942 through 1952. She carried a top-secret “Q” security classification. It, however, was not enough to allow Crain complete knowledge of “Project Caucasian,” suspected to be the UFO crash. A Richard V. Wheeler is suspected to be the officer who allowed Crain to handle a piece of “a spaceship.” According to Crain, the truth about UFOs and crashes was “commonknowledge” among the scientists and engineers at Wright-Patterson. Werner Von Braun was one of those scientists.
Mark Magruder, the son of Lieutenant Colonel Marion Milton “Black Mac” Magruder, highly decorated World War II fighter pilot, tells of his father’s witnessing the bodies and remnants of the Roswell UFO crash during April of 1948.
A good portion of the book traverses the military and government response as an open and curiously healthy Project Sign with its Loedding/Sneider September 1947 “Estimate of the Situation” that the UFOs were interplanetary craft.
“The ‘nuts and bolts’ crowd was becoming too vociferous at Wright-Patterson,” say the authors, “and the fire needed to be doused before it reached a particular hanger.”
The outcome was “total abandonment of any attempt at an objective investigation of the flying saucer situation”: code-named Project Grudge. Resistance by a few scientists led to Project Stork at the Battelle Institute: this eventually followed the ‘official line’: “…statistical methods were no good for a study like this. They didn’t prove a thing…I had written it off as worthless.” (Ruppelt.)
According to the authors, Project Blue Book, which followed the early demise of Project Grudge (despite Ruppelt’s efforts to upgrade Blue Book as a more serious endeavor), was “simply a front for the actual UFO investigation being conducted elsewhere…” That ‘elsewhere’ was the 4602nd Air Intelligence Service Squadron at ENT AFB in Colorado Springs, Colorado: Project Moon Dust and Operation Blue Fly. “…Blue Book became nothing more than a public relations outfit.”
The “dirtydeed” continued through the 1968 Condon Committee and the National Academy of Sciences.“It was maneuvered, steered, and driven precisely to the predetermined destination desired by the Pentagon…the Panel never investigated the UFO phenomena; it simply endorsed the conclusions of the Condon Committee.” (pp. 179-181.)
Remaining chapters somewhat outline how Dr. J. Allen Hynek and various officials continued to be duped, such as Chester W. Lytte and Captain James McAndrew. In the words of Major General Kenner F. Hertford: “I still do not understand the veil of secrecy maintained for the last 45 years of the arrival on Earth of an object with human-like living beings.”
Additional testimonies are spread throughout. Physical descriptions are given from the files of Leonard Stringfield, Dr. Lejeune Foster who examined bodies retrieved at Roswell, Dr. Leon E. Kazarian, who specialized in biomechanics, and was a senior-level scientist with the Air Force Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson in the 1960’s and 1970’s, was a probable witness, Dr. Leon B. Visse, a French expert on biological elements connected with cellular tissue, did a 1959 examination of alien corpses at Wright-Patterson, among others. John Mosgrove in October of 1979 was party to a dental specimen of an alleged alien jaw bone from Wright-Patterson.
The authors say: “The projects associated with the Roswell crash knew what they had, but they could not acknowledge what they could not comprehend.”
Various critics were dissatisfied for a variety of reasons. RRR Group said on August 7, 2013: “The hyperbolic account in the book astounds; it is overly dramatic and punchy…sensationalized to make a point that belies reality.” I am not sure if the book would be any more enjoyable if it was written strictly in the joyless syntax of raw scientific prose; Nothing less than original laboratory documents would satisfy these pundits. Likewise, TSH said on August 8, 2013, that Anthony Bragalia needed to fully document his findings on Nitinol so “hacks” couldn’t piggy-back-off his hard work.
John Harney said in MagoniaBlog that continued crashes could not be successfully hidden (September 16, 2013): “…if a number of others are said to have occurred then it is just not credible that the truth about them could be concealed…to suggest that every nation where a UFO crashes would be willing or able to keep it secret is utterly absurd.” Harney talked about witness accounts that demonstrate “…a remarkable resemblance to a mogul balloon rig.”
WHY UFO CRASHES?
If UFOs are spacecraft constructed of exotic, indestructible “morphing” material, why do they damage and crash? Harney said: “…bits of wreckage were indestructible…somehow shattered when or before they hit the ground…”
“Nohup” had reservations as early as March 2009: “If this stuff is so strong, how is it that it could so completely fragment enough to spread out over a quarter mile of the desert?” The Roswell object has been described as disrupting the earth: “Described as being very light, almost weightless. Then how is it that the ‘ship’ could create anything like a crater or gouge in the hard desert dirt?”
The Roswell material was somehow determined to be in part composed of Titanium, the authors quote General Arthur Exon: “Titanium and some other metal…(but) the processing was different.” (p. 70.)
To know this, some kind of spectrographic or X-ray diffraction equipment would have penetrated the metal to allow a ‘sample.’ Yet, the metal is described as “indestructibleandimpervious to external forces.” (p. 65.) Dr. Knox Missaps, a mathematician specializing in thermodynamics, said in 1947: “We couldn’t break it or even scratch it in any way…” (p. 77.) Witness June Crain said: “I tried everything I could to tear it up, and I couldn’t tear it. I couldn’t make a dent in it. I couldn’t make a mark on it.” (p. 116.)
Benson Saler, a retired anthropologist from Brandeis University, and co-author of UFOCrash atRoswell: The Genesis ofaModern Myth, said the lack of solid evidence demonstrated something else: “…we don’t know of any empirical evidence to support the idea that it crashed, (rather we are seeing) the development of an American myth that was unfolding right before our eyes.”
Investigator Anthony Bragalia, did believe a crash occurred, but that there could be no single reason for the crash. He mentioned that forensic examiners and failure analysis experts often attribute accidents to multiple causes, aconvergenceof events. “Roswell’s crash was caused by an amalgamation of things,” said Bragalia.
Roswell remains an amalgamation of questions: questions that will continue to be raised: the answers will only arise with a convergence of new facts.
