ALIEN LIVES MATTER - NOW AVAILABLE!


ALIEN LIVES MATTER - IT'S OK TO BE GREY

By Tim Swartz, Tim Beckley,  Sean Casteel, Prof. Stephen Fenley,
Scott Corrales, Joseph Foster, Harry Drew, and others

SPECIAL CONSPIRACY JOURNAL OFFER- $20.00 + $5 S/H

Over 20 of the world's leading UFOlogists establish  that humans have done battle with aliens over and over again, shooting at them, molesting them, hitting them, running them over,  unleashing dogs upon them, and injuring -- and even killing them -- though any means possible, as humans try to combat their fear of the unknown.

In many instances the aliens have fought back. They have sought revenge, and more often than not, gotten it.   Here are over a hundred reports of the strangest close encounters with humanoids who use force to defend themselves -- such as the case of the NY hunter whose rifle was ripped from his hands, the shotgun barrel twisted, and than handed back to him. There is also the crash landing of a UFO in Kingman, AZ which involved 8 UFOs positioning themselves in the sky in combat position, apparently returning to find any  survivors of their doomed craft, and to protect themselves in doing so.  

IS THERE A BLACK UFO EXPERIENCE?

The second part of the book's "mission," is to disprove the concept held by  many that African Americans are not prone to have UFO experiences or to hold a belief or interest in the subject. One contributor, Prof. Stephen Finley of the University of Louisiana, explains how UFOs are part of the overall "Black experience" of many African Americans. Most of his fans do not realize that Muhammad Ali had over 21 UFO sightings. A friend of researcher Tim Beckley, the late Champ explains why he was so taken up with the subject, being a part of his spiritual beliefs.

- THE CULTURAL ASPECT OF UFOS DEPARTMENT -

A Comprehensive Study of African-American UFO Experiences
By Sean Casteel

This book should be accredited in academic circles for its visionary efforts and its attempts to cover a little known cultural aspect of the already controversial topic of UFO studies.

The content is given a great deal of legitimacy due to its many valued contributors, including a Religious Studies Professor, Stephen C. Finley, who teaches at Louisiana State University.

But let us start “at the beginning!”

When editor and publisher Timothy Green Beckley first proposed the idea for a book to be called “Alien Lives Matter: It’s OK To Be Grey,” some among his stable of writers and contributors were concerned that the title might be seen as trivializing the Black Lives Matter movement that has been the catalyst for so much hoped for meaningful social change in this country.

So Tim did a little background research and discovered that the “Lives Matter” slogan had been appropriated in numerous ways and in numerous places. For example, there is a group calling itself “Hawaiian Lives Matter,” and Amazon offers a wide selection of t-shirts with “Alien Lives Matter” emblazoned on the chest. So we are not alone, to use an expression.

When we were working on the book and I mentioned the title to family and friends, it never failed to elicit a chuckle and a comment about how clever it was. Even among nonbelievers, the title struck home and resonated profoundly.

The book turned out to be a monumental effort over 500 pages in length and utilizing the talents of many, many contributors well known in the fields of Ufology and paranormal research.

One of the main concepts we were trying to illuminate was the idea that aliens, grey and otherwise, do indeed have lives that matter. And they are not completely invulnerable to attack by humans. We present a large number of case histories in which humans assaulted aliens with guns, ran over them with cars, and imprisoned them in jail cells, etc., all as a response to humans’ fear of the unknown. In many cases, the aliens were perfectly harmless and did not deserve the mayhem unleashed on them.

Which doesn’t mean that the aliens don’t take a kind of vengeance in such cases – or at least make a show of force intended to demonstrate that they will defend themselves when necessary and are not intimidated. Like we humans, the aliens value their own lives and the lives of their fellow creatures.

But this line of thinking, in racial terms, also led us to do a section on Black and African-American UFO experiencers. Most of them are little known in the field, even among the so-called “experts,” but there are many cases of interaction between Blacks and aliens, and we present a great deal of them in “Alien Lives Matter.

AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN BOARDS A UFO

There is, for example, one of the most famous instances of alien abduction, the Barney and Betty Hill case. A chapter in the book called “The Betty and Barney Hill Abduction – An African-American UFO Story,” written by researcher David J. Halperin, tells their story briefly.

“They were coming home from a vacation in Canada,” Halperin writes, “driving by night through the New Hampshire Mountains, when they noticed a light following them. The light seemed to move against

the background of the starry sky, suggesting pretty strongly that it wasn’t itself a heavenly body.”

The event was taking place in September, 1961. The story continues.

“Barney stopped the car, got out, and looked at the light through a pair of binoculars,” Halperin continues. “He saw a glowing, flat, pancake-shaped object with what seemed to be rows of lighted windows around its edges. Behind the windows were humanlike figures. Terrified, Barney fled back to the car and they zoomed off down the highway. The rest of the trip was surreal, dreamlike. Twice the Hills heard, or thought they heard, a series of beeps. That was all they remembered of the UFO before they arrived in Portsmouth at dawn, hours later than they’d expected.”

Those “missing” hours that Halperin is recounting have come to be a familiar element in the many alien abduction stories that were to follow in the nearly sixty years since the Hills’ encounter. In February 1964, under hypnosis with Boston psychiatrist Dr. Benjamin Simon, the details of one of the strangest encounters in the history of mankind would emerge in all its history-making glory once the alien-induced “amnesia” was penetrated.

What has often been overlooked is the fact that Barney was an African-American and the Hills were a mixed race couple in a time when the shadow of racism hung over such a union. The Civil Rights movement as led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was in its early stages and Jim Crow laws still existed in many parts of the country. As the Hills made that fateful drive down the New Hampshire highway, Barney said later that he had been tired and considered stopping at a motel to sleep before continuing their journey.

But Barney decided against the idea simply because he didn’t want to risk the indignity of being turned away from a “whites only” motel.

Meanwhile, as Tim Beckley tells the tale, Barney had not been entirely passive with the aliens. He became exceedingly frightened seeing the strange aerial activity and stopped the car. During a session with Dr. Simon, Barney explained how he went about getting Betty’s handgun out of the trunk.

“I went to the trunk of the car,” Barney said, “and opened it and took out a gun I had concealed there and I put it in my pocket. And then I said, ‘Give me the binoculars.’ And I looked and I could see that the thing I thought was a plane had made a turn to the left toward Vermont, and kept turning and started coming right back.”

The craft got bigger and more menacing, Beckley writes. Under hypnosis, Barney started screaming “I’ve got to get my gun!” Betty’s niece, Kathleen Marden, decades later coauthored with Stanton Friedman a well-received book on the Hills’ experience called “Captured!” When Kathleen was asked whether the Hills had taken the handgun they’d been carrying onboard the craft with them while being abducted, she replied that they had not.

Why did they leave the pistol behind, considering they were so frightened? Could it have been because the couple had been given a “mental command” by the aliens to leave the weapon behind – for everyone’s safety? Things might have gone far worse for Betty and Barney if they had gone onboard the ship “packing heat.”

The Hill case serves very well to illustrate the two main themes of “Alien Lives Matter.” On the one hand, you have the potential violent aggression against the UFO occupants as evidenced by Barney placing the pistol in his pocket. Add to that the fact that Barney was an African-American UFO experiencer and you understand what Beckley calls the book’s “two-pronged” approach to the flying saucer phenomenon.

THE MOTHER AND DAUGHTER EXPERIENCERS

Tim Beckley’s longtime friend, Diane Tessman, runs a psychic counseling service and is a prolific author, with a great deal of her work

having been published by Beckley himself. When I was doing some proofreading chores for “Alien Lives Matter,” I was surprised to learn that Tessman is mother to a biracial daughter who is also a Ufologist. The daughter’s name is Gianna, and her father hails from Trinidad.

“Diane and her daughter are striking beauties,” Beckley writes. “One blond with green eyes and the other with curly brown hair and big, expression-filled brown eyes. A wondrous contrast. I don’t know of any other biracial individuals in UFO research or the paranormal, but I am honestly probably not completely informed as I am not working for the census bureau. Diane and Gianna, who is an experienced video photographer, have had a number of UFO experiences together. And Gianna has done some channeling, but not fulltime like her mother.”

The paranormal experiences mother and daughter have shared have served as a bonding mechanism, though it is sometimes difficult to separate their UFO encounters from other kinds of supernatural events. Perhaps it is better to withhold their stories so the reader can experience what the pair saw in the kind of detail not possible in the space allotted for this article.

THE BLACK MAN WHO RAN PROJECT BLUE BOOK

Did you know that the Air Force’s UFO reporting and analysis agency, the now defunct Project Blue Book, was once headed by an African-American?

Colonel Robert Friend was said to be one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen, an all-black unit flying single-engine planes into combat in the Mediterranean theater during World War II. After the war, Friend remained in the military in what became the Air Force, and, rising to lieutenant colonel, he directed Project Blue Book, holding the post from 1958 to 1963.

In a speech Friend gave at the National Atomic Testing Museum in 2017, he expressed skepticism about genuine alien UFOs having visited the Earth, but, unlike many of his colleagues, he favored further research. He said he believed that the probability of there being life elsewhere in the big cosmos “is just absolutely out of this world.”

Friend died in 2019 at the age of ninety-nine.

BARBARA HUDSON – UFO CONTACTEE

Barbara Hudson was one of only a handful of females involved in the UFO phenomenon. In the 1960s, she was a consort of flying saucer pioneers Gray Barker and Jim Moseley, forming a trio that the average Middle American would probably find a little bit out of the ordinary, particularly because Barbara is Black. Barbara claimed to belong to a secret organization called “The Group.”

Hudson’s entrée into the 60s saucer scene began when three mysterious men showed up at her New York apartment and informed her that she’d been chosen to become a member of a secretive outfit involved with UFOs. The three mystery men drove Hudson to a remote stretch of Long Island where they arrived at a secluded compound. Hudson was introduced to other members of “The Group,” a secret alliance of humans and ETs who had joined forces to reveal the startling truth of the flying saucer mystery.

“The Group” was responsible for Hudson’s involvement with the UFO conference scene, and in fact directed her to attend one of Moseley’s conventions so they could “keep an eye on things.” At the time, when Tim Beckley was first starting to spread his wings as a publisher in the UFO field, he heard many of Barbara’s stories firsthand and felt that she related them with conviction, though there was no way to verify her claims. Which only added to Hudson’s “aura of mystery.”

Alien Lives Matter” includes Barbara’s first-person account of a “human”-looking stranger appearing in her bedroom with piercing shafts of light for eyes. She was then taken aboard a ship in what seems to be a pretty standard abduction experience. The aliens told Barbara that they were visiting Earth in an attempt to “contact their own.” This, too, is familiar, as many other contactees have also been told that they are special “chosen ones,” under the protection of the UFO occupants.

Again, one should read Barbara’s story in “Alien Lives Matter” to get a more complete account of her life as an African-American UFO experiencer.

AFRICAN-AMERICAN SHOW BIZ AND THE ALIEN INFLUENCE

Tim Beckley also relates the stories of some important Black entertainers and their interest in UFOs. Avant-garde jazz musician Sun Ra even claimed to be from another planet, sent from Saturn to preach peace to our war-ravaged planet.

Sun Ra claimed that a bright light appeared around him and his whole body changed into something else. He could see through himself.

“I went up – I wasn’t in human form – and I landed on a planet that I identified as Saturn. They teleported me and I was on a stage with them. They told me the world was going into complete chaos. I would speak through music and the world would listen. That’s what they told me!”

Another prominent African American musician is jazz flutist Bobbi Humphrey, who has impressive credits, having played alongside Duke Ellington and George Benson and being named Best Female Instrumentalist by “Billboard Magazine.”

“By her own admission,” Beckley writes, “Bobbi has seen things in the sky that were most unusual. She has also been fascinated by psychic phenomena since she was young and is an avid reader of magazines about the paranormal. Bobbi has personally had many, many experiences that could be labeled paranormal and confesses that she is a little frightened of the unseen bizarre realms that surround us. Bobbi is proof that African-Americans are just as hip on UFOs as any other group of open-minded folks.”

The late comedian Dick Gregory was a true crusader who was sometimes thought of as the country’s top back humorist. He told Beckley in an interview that he was certain UFOs exist – he’d seen them – and that a secret government controls what we are allowed to think and believe regarding UFOs and other matters.

Meanwhile, the late African-American entertainer, Sammy Davis, Jr., held a lively belief in UFOs, having made four observations that were “positively out of this world.” Davis told his UFO encounter stories to Beckley personally in a telephone interview arranged by jazz drummer Buddy Rich, who was also a believer. Davis told Beckley he had never feared whoever the flying saucer pilots were, although we don’t know what his buddy, the Chairman of the Board, Frank Sinatra, had to say on the subject.

Did aliens intervene to save the life of a young Jimi Hendrix? Read the riveting account of Hendrix surviving a killer blizzard that could easily have taken his life before the years when he would come to be regarded as the greatest rock guitarist of all time. The story is best left to readers of “Alien Lives Matter” who will appreciate learning the facts of Jimi’s relationship with the aliens and their keeping a careful watch over him so that he could fulfill his destiny as a leading musical figure of his time.

Richie Havens, the black folk music icon, claimed that as he was improvising the song “Freedom” on stage at the legendary Woodstock music festival in 1969 he saw a couple of UFOs dancing among the clouds. He also had other UFO sightings. Havens was so immersed in the subject that he showed up to speak at small UFO conferences held at the Village Gate in Greenwich Village.

STILL MORE AFRICAN-AMERICAN EXPERIENCERS

Alien Lives Matter” also relates the stories of other African-American experiencers.

African-American twin sisters Shurlene and Earlene Wallace were typical abductees, frequently being taken from their bedrooms into strange alien environments. Shurlene wrote a book about their encounters called “From the Motherland to the Mothership,” the word “Motherland” being a reference to Africa.

Beckley provides a detailed history of Muhammad Ali and his UFO encounters, which are also related to Ali’s spiritual leader, Elijah Muhammad, who believed that the Biblical prophet Elijah was describing a UFO when he wrote about the “Mother Wheel” as a vision sent by God. Beckley spent time hanging out with Ali and interviewing the champ personally, and he reports on Ali’s experiences with both humor and heart.

Meanwhile, Stephen C. Finley is a Religious Studies professor at Louisiana State University who specializes in African-American religion and has made a thorough study of the Nation of Islam and its place in ushering in the belief in UFOs in the U.S. beginning in the 1930s, many years before Kenneth Arnold’s 1947 sighting of flying saucers that is usually said to be the starting point for the phenomenon in the modern era. Finley was a guest on Beckley’s podcast “Exploring the Bizarre,” cohosted by Tim R. Swartz, and still available to listen to on YouTube.

Alien Lives Matter: It’s OK To Be Grey” involves the work of many writers and can truly be said to be “years in the making.” Read it for its unique perspective on humankind’s troubled responses to the alien presence, as well as for its embracing of racial diversity in a world still suffering from cruel forms of discrimination. To the greys, we are not white people or colored people – we are simply people.

Surprising Primate DNA Found in Kentucky
By Patrick Cavanaugh

Both literally and figuratively, monsters don't come much bigger than Bigfoot, with new DNA evidence collected by the Travel Channel's Expedition Bigfoot team offering an all-new perspective on the creature's existence. While this evidence might not confirm that the creature exists definitively, the data shows that evidence of an unexpected species of primate appeared in the United States, an area in which it would be incredibly unlikely to appear. In this regard, it's possible that there are other species of primates that have existed in the U.S. without human discovery, which could lend credence to the idea that a massive "Bigfoot" could be out in the wild, existing undetected.

Per press release, "During filming deep in the wilderness of Kentucky’s Appalachian highlands, eDNA collected from soil under a massive tree structure found by Dr. Mayor and LeBlanc produced surprising and exciting results. Environmental DNA (eDNA) is the genetic material naturally left behind by animals in the environment. Scientific analysis of these samples helps generate a snapshot of any living creatures. This revolutionary new tool is increasingly used to confirm the presence of elusive animals."

“This scientific expedition may have finally taken one of the world’s greatest mysteries out of the pages of legend and lore and into reality,” Dr. Mayor shared in a statement.

"Miroslava Munguia Ramos, project manager at the UCLA California Environmental DNA program, has analyzed the eDNA sample from the tree structure. Following are her observations."

    “We received soil samples from your team and took a few months to get them processed. What we’re looking at are the unique organisms that we were able to identify. Our software does what’s known as metabar coding. So, it’ll match up all the DNA sequences that we were able to detect and try to cross reference them with the thousands of genomes that have been published and it’s pretty common that when we’re looking at environmental DNA samples, we detect humans, because there’s going be human traces almost everywhere.”
    “But what I found very interesting was that, yes, we have detected human DNA in these areas, but we’re still seeing different primate DNA. There wasn’t just one human primate, there are several different primates, some sort of primate relative that exists in the data.”
    “Pan troglodyte is a species of chimpanzee, which you would not see in the areas you’re at. It’s a real head scratcher. It’s important to note that the higher the detection, the more confidence we can say that whatever organism, whatever taxonomy we’re looking at was apparent in the area. And in this case, we’re looking at the Pan genus, or the chimpanzee genus…. there’s 3000 reads.”
    “The technology is constantly improving, it’s getting more accurate, and now it just really comes down to making sure we have enough samples and we’re confident that whatever we’re studying is a unique species.”

"Dr. Mayor expanded on this unique discovery."

    “Finding what appears to be a very large structure, seemingly created with intention and requiring great strength as well as foresight, is interesting. It is not unheard of for primates to stack sticks or rocks, although for me, the jury is still out as to what that was. There is no guess work in science. It is great is that eDNA was collected from that site. That may give us the answers we are looking for.”
    “The process of describing and confirming a new species is difficult. DNA is absolutely essential in the scientific community to prove that something is a new or recognized species. You have eyewitness accounts from tens of thousands of people who say they have encountered Bigfoot, some coming forward with blurry videos and photographs. But that is just not going to cut it. What we need is indisputable genetic evidence to really put this mystery to rest. And there’s no doubt in my mind that we are headed in the right direction.”

The series finale of Expedition Bigfoot, which includes analysis of this new evidence, debuts on Sunday, March 28th.

Little Human Subspecies: Where’s the Evidence?
By Mark Andrew Carpenter

From the lush oases of Africa’s Ethiopia, across the planet to the sweltering jungles of Mexico, beyond the horizon to the primordial coasts of Hawaii, and back again to the gardens, olive groves, and marble columns of ancient Greece, an obscure common thread of small human subspecies endures. Detailed accounts persist about human subspecies that were small in stature, nocturnal, seemingly gifted with advanced knowledge, who primarily dwelt underground, and emerged to the surface only at night. Is it possible that such specific parallels may be something more than just common mythological archetypes?

Is there really some collective subconscious dynamic that somehow triggers practically every indigenous ethnic group from around the globe to harbor the belief that in prehistoric times there existed two to three foot (0.6 - 0.9 meter) tall people who were skilled masons, astronomers, magicians/sorcerers, and who hoarded treasure? Or is there more than mere ‘belief’ to this story?

As interesting as the mythological parallels are, the beliefs and stories are tempting to dismiss as a widespread element of folklore. However, archaeological evidence in the form of megalithic ruins, stone spheres, platform temples, pyramids, and even remains do indeed exist and seem to have cultural connections with these human subspecies of ancient lore.

Human Subspecies: The Ancient Greek Accounts

Several different Greek scholars, historians, and philosophers wrote about these legendary little human subspecies. In Aristotle’s  History of Animals  (300 BC), he writes:

    “these birds [the cranes] migrate from the steppes of  Scythia [modern Eurasia] to the marshlands south of Egypt where the Nile has its source [Ethiopia]. And it is here, by the way, that they are said to fight with the pygmies; and the story is not fabulous, but there is in reality a race of dwarfish men, and the horses are little in proportion, and the men live in caves underground.”

Lucius Flavius  Philostratus (third century AD) has written a similar account:

    “And as to the pigmies, he said that they lived underground, and that they lay on the other side of the Ganges and lived in the manner which is related by all. As to men that are shadow-footed or have long heads, and as to the other poetical fancies which the treatise of Scylax recounts about them, he said that they didn't live anywhere on the earth, and least of all in India.”

Philostratus also recorded an account of a myth about  Hercules in which the demigod hero slayed a different demigod/giant warrior, and then fell asleep. But Hercules did not know that the  pygmies were related to the giant he had defeated. And he didn’t know they were watching and grieving from their underground realm. He goes on to detail how the pygmies lived underground in tunnels where they stored provisions, had little horses, and when Hercules fell asleep, they billowed forth from under the ground in waves and attempted to bind and capture him.

Human Subspecies: Curious Modern Scientific Findings

In 2019, Jason Daley of the Smithsonian Magazine wrote an article about what is believed to be the extremely ancient remains of a  Neanderthal child which was “eaten by a giant bird.” The remains are approximately 115,000 years old and were discovered in  Ciemna Cave , in what is modern day Poland. They were found along with animal bones in a cache which indicated that all the bones, hominin and animal, were preyed upon by and had traveled through the digestive tract of a giant, prehistoric bird. It’s important to note that the Neanderthal remains are few and very tiny, and it is this fact that leads scientists to believe that this was a small child.

Regardless, if these bones belonged to some very small human subspecies or an infant child hominin, either way it is a fact that in the very distant past of prehistory, little humans who were not Homo sapiens were attacked and eaten by giant birds. Modern day biologists have thoroughly studied the migratory patterns of a variety of crane species, and some species of  crane do in fact migrate from marshes in Eurasia all the way down to  Ethiopia.

Human Subspecies: The Egyptian Deity Bes

The ancient Egyptian polytheistic belief system comes complete with all manner of deities, monsters, and so on, but the cult of the deity,  Bes, is unique.

Unlike most Egyptian deities, Bes was never portrayed from the profile position but always portrayed either in full-frontal two-dimensional form or full three-dimensional sculpture form. Bes was depicted as a diminutive or dwarf human with some subtle anthropomorphic features.

Bes was not a deity to be sought out at some luxurious temple, but his idol was kept at home and it was the dwelling which he guarded wearing his warrior’s tunic. He was a deity of music, protection, fertility, and domestic pleasures. But perhaps the most interesting aspect of Bes is that his cult was relatively new in that it only became widespread during the New Kingdom, and this is the result of its importation from the south ( Nubia, Somalia, or Ethiopia).

In other words, what is interesting about this is that the  ancient Greeks  relay to us that these pygmy human subspecies lived south of Egypt and it is from this same region that the cult of this dwarf god Bes originates.

Nubia brings to mind the many small pyramids that are a mystery unto themselves. While it is generally regarded as no great mystery, exactly who were entombed within these Nubian pyramids is not entirely clear as many of these tombs were allegedly looted in antiquity and today many have been flooded by a rising water table.

Human Subspecies: Pygmies, Platforms, and Pyramids

In what is now modern-day Mexico, on the eastern side of the Yucatan Peninsula, rests the ruins of the ancient Maya site,  Uxmal. This ancient Maya complex is held as one of the most important and is noted for its large and imposing structures. Among the most impressive and ancient of all these structures is the  El Adivino,  The Pyramid of the Magician, which is also known as The Pyramid of the Dwarf . This name comes from the Maya people themselves who have several versions of how this pyramid was constructed, but in each case, it was constructed by the incredible feats of a mysterious and powerful little human subspecies.

This pyramid has been called the most distinct Maya structure on the entire peninsula (which is saying a great deal). It has very steep/rounded sides, is very tall and has an elliptical base. The simplest account the Maya kept about the pyramid was that a dwarfish sorcerer deity named Itzamna built the pyramid in a single night using only his strength and magic. In another version of the myth, a witch gives birth to a dwarf via an egg and the miraculous birth draws the attention of the king who challenges the diminutive boy to erect a temple in a single night or be put to death. The powerful little man ultimately completes 3 seemingly impossible challenges, kills the king, and becomes the new ruler of Uxmal.

Other Human Subspecies Connections Around the World

The Maya story about a little person using some other worldly or ingenious methods to create grand structures in a single night brings to mind the  Menehune who were the small archaic human subspecies inhabitants of Hawaii. These mysterious prehistoric people are said to have inhabited the Hawaiian Islands long before Polynesians arrived, and were responsible for the construction of the impressive and massive buildings like platform temples and artificial fishponds.

The Hawaiians believe that the Menehune would only come out at night to build these structures and their goal was always to complete construction in one single night. Similar to these other accounts, they would be easy to dismiss if it were not for physical evidence like the ruined temples and still functioning fishponds, just as the Maya story has its magnificent megalithic marvel.

Now onto the islands and inlets of the North Atlantic, Scandinavia, Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, all of which are equally filled to the brim with ancient accounts also attached to strange ruins.  Skara Brae  in Scotland for instance, comes to mind due to the measurements of the doorways and beds which all existed in underground dwellings. All of these North Atlantic regions have deeply engrained within them stylized recollections (mythology) of these prehistoric predecessors: elves, dwarfs, leprechauns, and many other human subspecies.

A Return To The Greeks For More About Little People

In Homer’s epic poem the  Iliad (eighth century BC), an ancient race of Pygmies, as the Greeks called them, were engaged in perpetual conflict with this species of cranes. Apparently, there was a queen of the little people named Gerana who offended Hera with her arrogance and claims of surpassing beauty, and as punishment this queen was then transformed into a crane which sparked the never-ending conflict between the two species:

    “Now when the men of both sides were set in order by their leaders, the Trojans came on with clamour and shouting, like wildfowl, as when the clamour of cranes goes high to the heavens, when the cranes escape the winter time and the rains unceasing and clamorously wing their way to the streaming Ocean, bringing to the Pygmaian men bloodshed and destruction: at daybreak they bring on the baleful battle against them.”

Little People As Reported By Native Americans

The vast majority of the widely varied Native American tribes have oral traditions that recall coexistence between the Native Americas and a different, smaller, and more ancient, human subspecies. Common elements to these accounts include mischievous behavior like luring children into the forest by playing music.

Similar to the Greeks and North Atlantic people, the Native Americans believed that these little people lived in caves and could potentially be dangerous. For example, the Pryor Mountains of Montana are said to be home to this day of little people who the Crow tribe believe to be their sacred ancestors. The Crow are extremely weary and or cautious about entering into what they perceive to be the territory of the little people. Interestingly, the Pryor Mountains are a relative hotspot for strange phenomenon like disappearances, fairy rings, and reports of unusual sightings.

Conclusion: More Evidence Of Human Subspecies May Surface

Growing up in a culture so rich in fiction, it can be hard to distinguish between the fairytales we learn as children and what seems to be actual historical evidence that in the distant past there may have been diminutive species or subspecies of humans who perhaps lived simply but also built unimaginable monuments and may have been preyed upon by a giant species of bird.

It is not that all these myths are suddenly becoming valid, but it is possible that certain historical events continue to echo in the form of stylized recollections which we call mythology. It’s worth considering for a moment that below the surface of the earth are miles upon miles of uncharted, unexplored cave systems. It is estimated that less than 1 % of known cave systems have been mapped.

This means that of the cave systems that are known, 99 % of the systems themselves have never been charted or explored. It must surely be then that the great majority of cave systems must be unknown entirely, meaning that we know very, very little about this part of the planet.

- MONSTERS OF THE DEEP DEPARTMENT -

The Legend of Lake Erie Bessie
By Molly Fosco

On a warm September day, Harold Bricker, his wife, Cora, and their son, Robert, set out from Ohio’s Sandusky Bay to go fishing on Lake Erie. While Bricker was baiting his hook, he noticed something moving in the water about 1,000 feet from their boat. Peering in that direction, he saw what looked like a long, sleek sea serpent swimming through the choppy waves.

The creature was “black and about 35 feet long with a snakelike head,” Bricker told the Los Angeles Times in 1990. He wanted to investigate, but his son was too nervous to get closer, astutely pointing out that whatever the thing was, it was certainly bigger than any of them. The Brickers weren’t sure what they saw that day, but their story was corroborated by at least five other witnesses.

For many Ohio residents, it was just the most recent sighting of the Lake Erie monster, or Bessie, the American cousin of Scotland’s famed Nessie of Loch Ness. (Last year was big for Nessie, according to the BBC — eight sightings, more than in any other year in this century.) Bessie has never been in the international spotlight, but since the late 18th century, Ohioans have insisted that a huge, snakelike creature lives in the depths of Lake Erie.

In July 1931, two Lake Erie fishermen, Clifford Wilson and Francis Cogenstose, claimed that a sea serpent was plunging through the waves near their boat in Sandusky Bay. Despite their fear, the two men managed to club the beast, bring it to shore and wrestle its limp body into a shipping crate.

At least that’s the story they told a New York Times reporter who happened to be visiting Sandusky that day.  When the curator of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History swung by to investigate, he determined that the clubbed and crated beast was actually an Indian python, according to Cryptozoology A to Z, by Loren Coleman and Jerome Clark. Despite that hoax and likely others, Lake Erie locals continue to claim sightings of Bessie’s long, scaly body plunging in and out of the water.

After the Brickers’ encounter in 1990, John Schaffner, editor of The Beacon, a newspaper in Port Clinton, Ohio, set up an 800-number for sightings. Schaffner admits that one of his friends knowingly published an account of a fake serpent sighting in another local paper, spurring a flurry of copycat reports. But the people calling Schaffner’s lake monster hotline weren’t trying to put one over on him. “They were serious as a heart attack,” Schaffner says. “They were absolutely convinced they were seeing something in the water.”

He remembers one woman in particular who was having coffee on her lakefront porch one summer morning, when she was overcome by a powerful stench. “She swears she saw a slinky sea monster with two humps in the water,” Schaffner says.

Investigative journalist and avid Lake Erie boater Steve Kovacs thinks he may have cracked the case. In 2012, Kovacs published The Solved Case of the Real Lake Erie Monster, in which he details sightings over the years and uses his reporting skills to identify the creature. His hard-hitting theory? When people see the Lake Erie monster, they are actually encountering larger-than-average lake sturgeon. It might not be the most thrilling revelation, but Kovacs claims it’s easy to see why folks mistake the giant fish for a monster. “They do look quite prehistoric,” he says. “If you see a sturgeon at the right angle, you probably would look at it and go ‘What the heck is that?’”

Adding to its sinister appearance, lake sturgeon can grow to enormous proportions. The largest specimen ever caught in Wisconsin was 84.2 inches long (7 feet) and weighed 212 pounds. In Minnesota, those record stats are 70 inches and 94.4 pounds.

Of course, it’s not just Bessie and Nessie that spark the imagination of lakegoers. An aquatic monster was spotted in Alaska’s Lake Iliamna in the 1960s, in the ’90s and again last year, according to the Anchorage Daily News. Lake Champlain, shared by New York state, Vermont and Quebec, has its own monster, known as Champ or Champy.

Like ghosts, yetis and Bigfoot, sightings of these bizarre beasts raise questions about the human psyche. Why do some people believe in creatures that have no proven existence? Donald R. Prothero, co-author of Abominable Science! Origins of the Yeti, Nessie and Other Famous Cryptids, blames it on our willingness to believe what we see. “People are fooled by their senses, especially sight, because we are notoriously bad witnesses,” Prothero told National Geographic in 2013. Kovacs thinks monster sightings serve a different purpose. “It diverts people from their problems in life, their anxieties, depression, bad times,” he says. “It gives [them] a sense of adventure and purpose.”

Over the years, scientists and marine experts have offered theories on Bessie. After the 1990 sighting, Fred Snyder, a researcher with the Ohio Sea Grant, told the Los Angeles Times that he, like Kovacs, believes it’s just a supersize sturgeon. But many locals would rather keep the monster story alive. The menus at LEMmy’s (Lake Erie Monster) Restaurant in Huron tell the tale of the 1931 sighting, but with an alternative ending: The monster now lives in the diner’s basement. If you listen closely, you can hear her thrashing around belowdecks. Or so the menu says.

Photos of "Ape Creatures" Surface in Brazil

The photographs show alleged ape-like creatures rumored to be skulking around Brazil's Itaparica Island.

Every country seems to have its own version of Bigfoot and Brazil is no exception, as evidenced recently by rumors of an (albeit smaller) ape-like beast reported on Itaparica Island.

The stories are centered around Ilha de Misericordia in the state of Bahia where a curfew in response to the coronavirus pandemic has left residents restricted to their homes.

This hasn't stopped some strange stories emerging from the region, however, with some reporting sightings of peculiar ape-like creatures wandering the deserted streets at night.

Most recently, two photographs have been circulating social media, one showing a creature walking along a quiet road and another which shows three creatures - two adults and a juvenile. They have very long arms and appear to walk upright on two legs while slightly hunched over.

What the images actually show however remains unclear - could these simply be native primates that have wandered into the streets due to the curfew? It's also possible that the images are a hoax, perhaps created using image manipulation, costumes, puppets or some other means.

"The first one is very well done, because of the shadows," said image expert Francisco Patricio. "The animal is going against the light, and it is very straight in front of the animal. And in the second, it is very difficult to identify even the existence of a shadow because it is not illuminated."

"You can't tell if they are false or true. However, low-resolution photos are perfect for optical illusion. You can dress up and go to the dark so that it is easy to create something that looks real."

Marise, the owner of a restaurant in Itaparica told reporters, “Everyone is talking about this all over social media."

Another resident of Itaparica, Gerusa, said, "I believe it is some beast trying to scare people."

In short, there is a chance that the photos are true, but that does not mean that they are real. Both are low in brightness and definition. With this, it is easy for someone in costume, for example, to appear much more frightening than normal.

- DRINKERS OF MILK DEPARTMENT -

A Mass Scientific Mystery in India
By Michael Grosso

The following story is about events that occurred one day in September, 1995. A similar phenomenon, I’ve learned, was repeated in 2006, 2008, and 2010. The phenomenon is one of dematerialization and nobody has clue to explain it. I’ll start to worry when people start to dematerialize.

Just before dawn (on a day in 1995) a man from New Delhi dreamed that Lord Ganesha, the elephant-headed god of wisdom, wanted milk. The man dashed out to the first temple to make a milk offering to the statue of Ganesha; much to his amazement he watched the milk disappear before his eyes.

The impossible nature of what he saw was obvious. Others joined him and witnesses multiplied. By the end of the day, reports of statues “drinking” milk were coming from all parts of India and from Hindu communities in London and other parts of the world.

The entire phenomenon, witnessed by millions, seems to have ended after about 24 hours. “The `milk-miracle’ may go down in history as the most important event shared by Hindus of this century, if not in the last millennium,” reported Hinduism Today in 1996.

Ordinary life in New Delhi came to a standstill while liter upon liter of milk vanished into thin air. The stock market in (what was then called) Bombay came to a halt as people rushed to temples to witness and participate in the wonder. Disbelievers sneered and called it “mass hysteria.”

The initial response of the Indian press condemned the reports as ignorant and superstitious. Newspaper reporters who witnessed the phenomenon from the UK, USA, Denmark, Germany and Canada were less glib. Reporters from the Washington Post did not reject as illusion what they personally witnessed at a Maryland Hindu temple.

UK reporter Rebecca Maer visited a temple in Southall and wrote in the Daily Express, “It’s difficult to dismiss something you have seen for yourself.”

The diehard denier will simply respond by saying that people can be convinced they saw something that was in fact an illusion. True, but proof is needed that it really is an illusion. What I saw on CNN was no illusion. It was perfectly clear; the white liquid, from inside its container, slowly diminished in size until it was all gone. Period.

Two Hindu students of mine were in India at the time of the phenomenon and wrote accounts of what they personally observed. One of them confirmed a fact I had read about in the newspapers. There was a milk shortage around the country as a result of all the milk that Lord Ganesha drank up!

Here is the story from my other student, Deepak Bhagchandani: “I have personally witnessed and experienced the opportunity to feed the Lord with my own hands in a temple, in New Delhi. I stood and waited in a queue at the Ganesha temple. It was astonishing and unbelievable when my turn came to offer milk to the Lord. I took a spoonful of milk in my hands and placed it near the sculpture. The milk disappeared slowly and gradually. It was not flowing down or being wasted. As a matter of fact, I could see no traces of milk anywhere.”

Deepak adds that he returned to the queue three times for a repeat performance. (Deepak also wrote an account of his witnessing “bhabutti,” or sacred ash, materialize from a Sai Baba photo, a widely reported phenomenon.)

Remarkably, this story of Ganesha, altogether astonishing, quickly vanished from public consciousness; it seems to have made a very slight impression on the Western mind. Disbelievers came up with lame objections.

A reporter for the Indian Express complained about wasting milk! Others bemoaned the loss of time on the job, so many people having fled their workplaces to witness the wonderfully amusing but superfluous miracle. They complained about the “absence of a scientific temper” without putting the issue to a test themselves.

The disbelievers were so frantic they moralized about the “failure of the education system.” Miracles, according to Malini Parthasarathy, writing for Chicago’s India Tribune, were “anachronisms incompatible with the vision of a secular and scientifically oriented India.” How rude!—how lower class of miracles! Don’t they know their place?

ALIEN LIVES MATTER - NOW AVAILABLE!


ALIEN LIVES MATTER - IT'S OK TO BE GREY

By Tim Swartz, Tim Beckley,  Sean Casteel, Prof. Stephen Fenley,
Scott Corrales, Joseph Foster, Harry Drew, and others

SPECIAL CONSPIRACY JOURNAL OFFER- $20.00 + $5 S/H

Over 20 of the world's leading UFOlogists establish  that humans have done battle with aliens over and over again, shooting at them, molesting them, hitting them, running them over,  unleashing dogs upon them, and injuring -- and even killing them -- though any means possible, as humans try to combat their fear of the unknown.

In many instances the aliens have fought back. They have sought revenge, and more often than not, gotten it.   Here are over a hundred reports of the strangest close encounters with humanoids who use force to defend themselves -- such as the case of the NY hunter whose rifle was ripped from his hands, the shotgun barrel twisted, and than handed back to him. There is also the crash landing of a UFO in Kingman, AZ which involved 8 UFOs positioning themselves in the sky in combat position, apparently returning to find any  survivors of their doomed craft, and to protect themselves in doing so.  

IS THERE A BLACK UFO EXPERIENCE?

The second part of the book's "mission," is to disprove the concept held by  many that African Americans are not prone to have UFO experiences or to hold a belief or interest in the subject. One contributor, Prof. Stephen Finley of the University of Louisiana, explains how UFOs are part of the overall "Black experience" of many African Americans. Most of his fans do not realize that Muhammad Ali had over 21 UFO sightings. A friend of researcher Tim Beckley, the late Champ explains why he was so taken up with the subject, being a part of his spiritual beliefs.

- WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT DEPARTMENT -

Airliner Encountered Strange Cylindrical Object Over New Mexico
By Tyler Rogoway

American Airlines Flight 2292, an Airbus A320 flying between Cincinnati and Phoenix on February 21st, 2021, had a bizarre close encounter with what its crew described as a "long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile" moving extremely fast over the top of their aircraft as it cruised along at 36,000 feet and 400 knots. The incident occurred over the remote northeast corner of New Mexico, to the west of the tiny town of Des Moines.

Steve Douglass, an experienced radio interceptor and the proprietor of Deep Black Horizon, told The War Zone that he was recording from his arsenal of scanners when he heard the strange transmission. The War Zone has reviewed over an hour of audio that Douglass has provided to us from before and after the strange radio call. We are working to authenticate it from the FAA and get further information and comment from the agency on the event. We have also reached out to American Airlines for any additional details they can provide. 

From Steve's blog on the encounter:

    At approximately 1:19 CST on the Albuquerque Center frequency of 127.850 MHz or 134.750 MHz (recording wasn't frequency stamped) the pilot reported: "Do you have any targets up here?  We just had something go right over the top of us - I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing - moving really fast right over the top of us."

    According to Flight 24 and Flight Aware AAL 2292 was over the northeast corner of New Mexico west of Clayton, New Mexico. No reply was monitored by Albuquerque Center because local (Amarillo) air traffic walked on top of it. AAL 2292 was near flight level 370 (37k) at the time of the report.

    No significant military aircraft presence was noted on ADS-B logs.

    The aircraft flew on to land in Phoenix, AZ.

Steve has provided the radio clip for download, you can listen to it here.

The incident is very similar to one that occurred in the same region almost exactly three years ago, which The War Zone was the first to report on. During that event, a Learjet and an Airbus both had consecutive close encounters with an unidentified object that flew over the top of them while cruising at around 37,000 feet over eastern Arizona. Later, the highly experienced Learjet pilot, which was flying for military contractor Phoenix Air, described to local news outlets just how strange the encounter was. His description is somewhat similar to the one from another odd encounter we reported on that occurred off of Long Island.

The description of a missile-like object also fits with some of the documented encounters U.S. Navy fighter pilots had with anomalous objects off the eastern seaboard throughout the last decade. The War Zone published official reports that we obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) as a result of our deeper investigation into seemingly unexplained encounters between U.S. Navy fighter crews and strange objects during that same period of time that mentions similar descriptions.

American Airlines has confirmed that the event in question, stating: "Following a debrief with our Flight Crew and additional information received, we can confirm this radio transmission was from American Airlines Flight 2292 on Feb. 21. For any additional questions on this, we encourage you to reach out to the FBI."

The FAA has released a short statement, which reads:

    "A pilot reported seeing an object over New Mexico shortly after noon local time on Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021. FAA air traffic controllers did not see any object in the area on their radarscopes."

While very little detail is provided in this official message, we know now that this was not a case of mistaken identity with another normal aircraft that was operating in the vicinity of Flight 2292.

There had been some speculation, and rightfully so, that what the pilots may have seen was a Learjet 60 that passed at an angle in front of and above Flight 2292 during this portion of its flight.

One major issue with this theory was that this occurred about nine minutes before the radio call was supposedly made. In addition, the Learjet was traveling 5,000 feet above the Airbus and passed in front of it at an angle about eight miles in distance. This is not something out of the ordinary that the pilots should have reacted to in such a puzzled fashion.

- CRASH GO THE SAUCERS DEPARTMENT -

The Kingman, Arizona UFO Crash Case

By Timothy Green Beckley and Sean Casteel

With a population hovering around 20,000 today, Kingman is well-known for its location as a Route 66 gateway. Western star Andy Devine was born and raised in the town, and Clark Gable and Carole Lombard were married at the rectory of Saint John’s Methodist Episcopal Church, during a break in the shooting of “Gone with the Wind.” Pamela Anderson did one of her 1992 Playboy photo shoots at the corner of 4th Street and Andy Devine Avenue (US Route 66), and was brought in by the Kingman Police Department for indecent exposure. She was not charged, but was asked to write a letter of apology. (The town should apologize to her!)

It’s one of the most intriguing UFO “crash” cases of all time, which actually involves three separate episodes, starting in 1947 and continuing until today, but having its biggest impact in 1953. It even involves surviving human-alien occupants, gigantic forest fires which the ETs were thought to have been responsible for with the crash of their craft, and their escape from a guarded underground jail cell.

This has to be one of the greatest UFO mysteries of all time, but it is a case that has been pooh-poohed by skeptics who have never even checked into this intriguing tale. So it pretty much went by the wayside until historian Harry Drew stepped in and took matters into his own hands. His investigation has lasted over six years and is still ongoing.

The story of Kingman’s incredible UFO incident is a long and winding one, and is told in all its glorious detail in the massive, 538-page, oversized book, “Alien Lives Matter – It’s OK To Be Grey.” with its twenty odd contributors, including the authors of this article. Weighing in at 3.5 pounds, this is not a coffee table book – this is the coffee table!

The book is broken into two parts: Some call these cases mere “Urban Legends,” but, in shocking contrast, they are “all too real!” Over 20 of the world’s leading UFOlogists establish that humans have done battle with aliens over and over again, shooting at them, molesting them, hitting them, running them over, unleashing dogs upon them, and injuring — even killing them — through any means possible, as humans try to combat their fear of the unknown. In multiple instances, the aliens have fought back on land, in the air and in the seas. They have sought revenge, and, more often than not, gotten it, as these documented cases illustrate.

IS THERE A BLACK UFO EXPERIENCE?

The second part of the book’s “mission” is to dispel the concept held by many that African-Americans are not prone to have UFO experiences or to hold a belief or interest in the subject. Prof. Stephen Finley, of the University of Louisiana, explains how UFOs are part of the overall “Black experience.” Ours is a salute to the unsung “patriots of UFOlogy,” who have not been given the credit they deserve for their work in this field. We will cover this topic thoroughly in another piece.

KINGMAN WAS ONCE A GHOST OF A TOWN

Back when all the UFO activity got started, Kingman, AZ, was a “ghost of a town,” with about 3000 residents and a military base that had been closed for a while.

Of all the alleged UFO retrieval cases that have come to my attention, one incident – which is actually several incidents rolled up into one dynamic case – stands out, at least to us, above the rest.

This is a five star ***** case in anybody’s book – especially in ours!

It contains so many riveting elements that it’s hard to believe all these events took place over a period stretching from the late 1940s to 1953, but still continue in the area to this day for those “insiders” who are willing to persist in their investigations.

These “riveting elements” include:

** – An aerial overflight with a squadron of eight UFOs in fight formation.

** – At least one “UFO crash,” and two other “soft landings,” all documented and verified.

** – The connection between not one but two fierce forest fires and arson possibly caused by the arrival of “outside agitators.”

** – An incident in which human-looking Ultra-terrestrials were sighted in the area and taken into “protective custody,” only to have them vanish under the strangest of circumstances.

** – The disembarking in a “peculiar vehicle” to points unknown by unknown alien allies.

* * * * * * * * * *

AN ATOMIC BOMB TEST

No one can be a hundred percent certain why Kingman attracted so much – almost maniacal – attention from the “sky people,” though an atomic bomb test in a neighboring state may have drawn them to the area.

One witness, Judith Ann Wolcott, has gone on record with the following proclamation concerning an atomic bomb test and the sighting of a UFO in close proximity.

“On May 19, 1953, at 05:05 AM local time, at Yucca Flat, Nevada, around 175 miles north of Kingman, one of a series of nuclear tests under the umbrella code-named Upshot-Knothole was set off. Sunrise that day was around 6:21, so, at the time of the blast the whole of the night sky was dark except for a slight pre-dawn glow along the eastern horizon. Within seconds of the blast some sort of a dark airborne object moving at an ultra-high rate of speed swept past to the east, traveling in a southerly direction almost as though it came from the test site tracking on a slightly downward trajectory and headed toward the mountains to the south.

“As the object lost altitude, suddenly a huge flash of light lit up the sky in the nearby mountains forward of the southern horizon. All along the object appeared to be unsteady, fairly thin, and possibly flat-circular. Although the sun was below the horizon the object was still high enough that it was able to catch the direct rays of the sun, wobbling enough that it was able to throw off a brilliant glint of sunlight from some portion of its underside as it tipped upward only to disappear as it tipped back. The flash of light near the base of the mountains was soon followed by a sound like a single clap of thunder.”

One individual has gone a long way in convincing me that that a series of UFO “crashes” outside the town of Kingman, AZ, might well be the most important UFO recovery case of all time, far surpassing even Roswell in notoriety and documentation.

We shall hear from historian Harry Drew as we continue down one long sandy desert road to find out the truth about the UFO retrieval at Kingman.

* * * * * * * * * *

Turning back the clock to Friday, May, 22, 1953, the headline on the front page of the “Prescott Courier” cried out –

“DON’T LOOK NOW, BUT FLYING SAUCERS RETURN”

While the header just over the story itself reads: – “OBJECTS NOTED IN FORMATION FOR FULL HOUR”

FULL TEXT RELATED TO THE KINGMAN INCIDENT

“Return of Flying Saucers over Prescott with graphic accounts of their capers in the skies were reported here Friday to give credence to the stories of spaceships possibly from the outer world.

“Three reliable Prescott residents, one of whom previously scoffed at the stories of flying saucers and spaceships, were a bit reluctant Friday to tell of their witnessing the acrobatics of a ‘herd’ of these mysterious objects.

“The men, Bill Beers, president of the Prescott Sportsmen’s Club, Ray Temple, a post office employee, and O. Ed Olson, told of watching eight disc-like objects in the sky Thursday morning.

“The three had gone to Del Rio Springs Creek, some thirty miles north of the city, to check for trout placed in the stream for this week’s children’s fishing derby when they noticed the objects. They couldn’t believe what they saw: eight flying saucers appearing simultaneously.

“Temple was first to see the saucers and called them to the attention of his companions. Temple and Beers both gave a description of the objects and their activity to a Courier reporter.

“Beer, who has flown planes in the past 20 years, said the objects could not possibly have been planes, birds or balloons. He said that until yesterday he had pooh-poohed reports on flying saucers, but he was ‘no longer a skeptic.’

As it turns out, the Kingman incident is a touchy subject indeed, as it has long been covered up to a large degree by a cloak of disinformation and deception, due to a large degree of ignorance on the part of those who have not bothered to check the “facts” on their own, but have simply relied upon the negative reports issued by others who have never been to the scene or looked into the history of the case. Truly, it is a an incident – actually, a series of incidents – with many layers, a mystery inside a riddle, that has remained for the most part hidden under the desert sands of Arizona for generations, but thanks to one individual the Kingman retrieval is now about to be revealed in a new light.

If it wasn’t for an article published more than halfway across the country twenty years after the incident is said to have taken place, we probably would never have had the opportunity to learn about the incident in question. The original reference comes from an article that appeared in the Farmington, Massachusetts, edition of the “Middlesex News,” published on April 23, 1973. It came to light because a young man was planning to do a science project for school. The article came to the attention of longtime UFO researcher Raymond Fowler, who followed up on the case and was able to locate the key witness to the retrieval who maintains that he was in the military and assigned to the scene for recovery purposes.

The man, first identified as Fritz Werner for “security purposes,” was later revealed as being Arthur Stansel. Meeting with Werner/Stansel, Raymond Fowler was able to get the witness to this incredible event to sign an affidavit swearing to his role in the Kingman incident. It is part of a 95-page report prepared by Fowler at the time for the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena.

“Beers said the objects appeared to be about 10,000 feet in the air, but it was hard to judge not knowing the size of the craft.

“Both Beers and Temple said two of the discs remained alone and stationary during the hour as they were observed around 10 AM yesterday morning. The two stationary objects swooped around in formation, broke formation, ‘peeled-off’ and shot directly up and down in a manner that could not be duplicated by a plane. When the (eight crafts) moved, they varied from very slow to speeds faster than a jet plane, the observers reported.

“After performing these aerial acrobatics for an hour, all eight of the craft then sped off together toward Prescott.

“The day previous, March 20th, a woman and her granddaughter saw a ‘glowing object’ drifting over Copper Basin Road.”

THE EARLY ELEMENTS OF THE STORY

As it turns out, the Kingman incident is a touchy subject indeed, as it has long been covered up to a large degree by a cloak of disinformation and deception, due to a large degree of ignorance on the part of those who have not bothered to check the “facts” on their own, but have simply relied upon the negative reports issued by others who have never been to the scene or looked into the history of the case. Truly, it is a an incident – actually, a series of incidents – with many layers, a mystery inside a riddle, that has remained for the most part hidden under the desert sands of Arizona for generations, but thanks to one individual the Kingman retrieval is now about to be revealed in a new light.

If it wasn’t for an article published more than halfway across the country twenty years after the incident is said to have taken place, we probably would never have had the opportunity to learn about the incident in question. The original reference comes from an article that appeared in the Farmington, Massachusetts, edition of the “Middlesex News,” published on April 23, 1973. It came to light because a young man was planning to do a science project for school. The article came to the attention of longtime UFO researcher Raymond Fowler, who followed up on the case and was able to locate the key witness to the retrieval who maintains that he was in the military and assigned to the scene for recovery purposes.

Brazilian Military Investigates Dramatic UFO Incidents
By George Knapp

For more than 40 years, UFO sightings and encounters in Brazil have been investigated by the country’s leading UFOlogist.

The researcher is A.J. Gevaerd. Gevaerd has also been publishing an international UFO journal for more than 40 years and recalls how the Air Force responded to a dramatic increase in UFO sightings years ago.

Some of the sightings were similar to the recent UFO sighting by the crew of an American Airlines jet over New Mexico.

American government officials haven’t had much to say about this near-miss UFO case. But in radio traffic the pilot says an unknown cylindrical object zoomed over their flight Sunday afternoon.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are both said to be investigating.

This type of sighting is not unique to the United States. In Brazil, the fifth largest country on Earth, by both population and geographical area, there is one man who is considered the top UFO investigator in the country.

Brazil, like the U.S., has a long history of UFO incidents, but according to the nation’s leading civilian researcher, the Brazilian Air Force decided years ago to be more transparent with its investigations.

“They assembled a team of men, 30 to 40 men heavily equipped to investigate those lights,” Gevaerd told George Knapp on Mystery Wire in a recent interview. “It was called Operation Saucer, which is the largest military mission that we have knowledge (of) in the world to investigate those things. Operation Saucer men stayed at their location for four months from September to December 1977. And they were able to make over 500 photos of the objects, 500 photos and 16 hours of film.”

Gevaerd has shared thousands of pages of documents released by the air force related to Operation Saucer.

George Knapp
Can you sort of introduce yourself to our audiences who are not familiar with your work, how long you’ve been involved in UFO research and how the different ways that it manifests itself, your magazines and conferences, things like that?

A. J. Gevaerd
Well, I’m involved with the UFO since my childhood. The first book I ever read was Erich von Däniken’s first one, the Chariots of the Gods in the 70s. When I was seven years old, then I then I started investigating you for this as early as when I was 12 years old. My first lecture was on four when I was 14 years old. And I never stopped I do all the things that can be done in the UFO segment. If I heard of a case, if I have a report, I investigate, I write about I share with my colleagues in Brazil, and abroad. And I published the magazine, the Brazilian UFO magazine, which is about to be 40 years old, the longest leaving UFO magazine in the world is still in print. We have a version of digital version as well. But we are still in print. And among all that. I do lectures, I’ve been to over 60 countries in 180 international trips to lecture. Only in the United States have been 70 times lecturing all over. So is that life dedicated to the UFO phenomenon.

George Knapp
Well, your magazine is terrific. It’s high quality. It’s read all over the world. Can you give me a sense of what the level of public interest is in this topic in your country right now? Has it gone up during the quarantine? Or is it about the same?

A. J. Gevaerd
It has been going up since the last 20 years and the quarantine make it a little higher. The interest of population like 20 years ago, only one third of the population believed that we were being visited by other forms of life, intelligent live from outside Earth. Now it’s the opposite. It’s two thirds of the society of the Brazilian population that believes that we are being visited by other forms of life, and that the government knows about it. But this is because like 15 years ago, we started a movement, a very strong movement, to ask our military to come clean about the UFOs, to declassify their documents, and something some people thought it was a childish idea that the government, that the military would come straight about it, would come clean about it. But they did. And they released over 20 pages of UFO official documentation that was classified as secret before. And it can be read by anybody in the National Archives, which is a national National Public Library. So Brazil has the most well succeeded, movement coming from people coming from the society because either for researchers or for society, to make a government to release its papers.

George Knapp
You know, the US government, we’ve learned so much about secret programs in the last three years, programs that existed that they would never admit. Can you describe the relationship that you have with your government and military? And how long that’s been going on where they have been more open than our government has been?

A. J. Gevaerd
It has, our government is more open. For instance, well, first of all, we were the first country to ever admit that UFOs exist. That was 1954. I mean, publicly. It was made by a military captain, called Manuel, I don’t remember … I’m sorry. And he said, in a public hearing that UFOs exists in the Brazilian Air Force knows about it and will investigate it. And it actually did during several several times in history. We investigated UFOs officially, like 1968 and 69 on the operation or Project Bluebook in the United States to cover up the thing, cover up the whole thing. We in Brazil had a huge structure within the walls of the Brazilian Air Force, General headquarters to investigate your (inaudible)  was called system of investigation for evidence by flying objects. And it resulted in 1000s of pages of reports of UFOs made by population, which was where some of them were selected, to be investigated by the military. So the military will go to farmers who go to the land or go to the field to talk to people about UFOs. Then in their results, there are even cases in which UFOs landed we cruise, so we check the lands on outside being reported by the military, Brazil military. Now, 10 years ago, the former commander of the Brazilian Air Force issued a document that they’re mining, that all units of the Brazilian information that had reports of UFOs or received reports of UFOs should send them out to Brazil, the federal capital, where is the Brazilian commander of airspace in space Aerospace Defense Command over there to be scrutinized and then sent to the National Archives. It was an official thing published in the official journal of Brazil, where all the the acts from the executive, the legislature, and the judiciary are published.

Sea Serpent Photographed Off Coast of Devon

An unidentified sea creature with a long neck and small head has been photographed stalking a shoal of fish - just yards off the British coast.

The fish were so terrified they beached themselves just seconds later.

The strange "sea-serpent" creature was spotted just 30 yards off the Devon coast by locals who reported a sighting of what they first thought was a turtle.

But pictures taken by one of the baffled witnesses reveal its neck is far too long for any known sea turtle. Experts are scratching their heads and are totally baffled by the sighting.

Gill Pearce photographed the creature following a shoal of fish at Saltern Cove in Paignton, Devon, on July 27.

She at first thought it was a large sea turtle but baffled experts say it doesn't fit the description because the greenish- brown beast with a small reptile head has too long a neck.

Mrs Pearce reported her sighting to the Marine Conservation Society where it was studied by sea life experts.

"Gill Pearce spotted the creature about 20 metres from the bay at Saltern Cove, near Goodrington," said Clare Fischer from the MCS.

"It was observed at about 15.30 on 27 July but by the time she had got her camera it had moved further out.

"She spotted it following a shoal of fish which beached themselves in Saltern Cove.

"The creature remained in the sea, then went out again and followed the shoal - this indicates it's not a turtle as they only eat jellyfish.

"We would love to know if other people have seen anything like this in the same area and can help clear up the mystery."

Some people think the sea sighting could be linked to that of a sperm whale sighted off south Devon recently but Clare thinks not.

"They [sperm whales] wouldn't come that close inshore and the reptilian-like head counts that out - at least that's what the experts are saying!"

The sighting has caused a stir on the MCS website too where theories range from sea serpent to salt water crocodile.

An MCS spokesman said: "It was reported as a turtle as it had large front flippers and small back flippers and what appeared to be a shell but was also said to have a small head on a thin neck about two-feet long which craned above the surface like a Plesiosaur.

"It's described as being as long as a sea lion with a long neck which floated at the same height in the water all the time."

"This is not a fake.

"The problem is the distance and clarity from which the photos were taken.

"The lady thought it may have been a turtle - but turtles don't chase fish

"It was reported as a turtle as it had large front flippers and small back flippers and what appeared to be a shell.

"But it was also said to have a small head on a thin neck about two feet long, which craned above the surface like a Plesiosaur.

"No sea turtles do that with their heads and we do not know of similarly described freshwater turtles that grow so big.

"So at the moment it is 'unidentified' - the person who reported it has trawled the internet and says the closest ID fit is a giant green sea turtle - but the description of the head doesn't add up."

The organisation has now asked for people to keep a keen watch on the seas off South Devon and appealed for more photos to be taken., adding: "If you live or are visiting down near Saltern Cove Goodrington, near Paignton please keep your eyes on the sea and let us know if you see anything - and keep your camera by your side just in case."

Peter Richardson, MCS biodiversity programme manager, said: "It might be a green turtle but they are usually the size of a dinner plate.

"It could be another Lock Ness monster or a number of things.

"At the moment it's an unidentified mystery creature and we don't know what it is.

"Two people have reported seeing a creature about three metres long with a small head on a two-and-a-half foot neck which came out of the water to look around.

"From the photographs it looks like it could be a basking shark and the tail fin could have been mistaken for a head but the people who saw it said it had large flippers and was about the size of a sea lion.

"It could be a crocodile but they are not seen very often and I called the local zoo to ask if anything had escaped but they said they didn't know what it was.

"It would be great to find out what it is so we are asking people in the area to look out for it."

Nikola Tesla Predicted Text Messages in 1909

Texting may be a boon in today's world, but the concept was visualised more than a century ago.

And, it was a pioneering American physicist who had predicted about the portable messaging service, like the SMS, via a hand-held device in the 'Popular Mechanics' magazine in 1909, its Technology Editor Seth Porges has claimed.

Nikola Tesla, the physicist and a mechanical engineer, whose name lives on at the electric car maker Tesla Motors saw wireless energy as the only way to make electricity thrive, according to Porges.

Tesla wrote in the magazine that one day it'd be possible to transmit "wireless messages" all over the world and imagined that such a hand-held device would be simple to use and one day everyone in the world would communicate to friends using it, Porges said.

This would usher in a new era of technology, Telsa wrote in the publication.

"Nikola Tesla was able to predict technology which is still in its nascent forms a hundred years later. He talked a lot about his other great passion, which was wireless power.

"It has taken a little longer to get off the ground, but work on fascinating wireless conductive transmission is going on right now in research centres at MIT and Intel and other places," Porges said.

Porges disclosed Tesla's prediction at a presentation, '108 years of futurism' to industry figures in New York.

The magazine, which has nine international editions that is read by millions, has been trying to imagine how the world will look in future years since it was first published in January 1902.

Chupacabra Lives in San Antonio's Latino lore
By René A. Guzman

The chupacabra has been called the Bigfoot of Latino culture, an urban legend said to drain the blood of goats and other farm animals from South America to south Texas. It’s name is Spanish for “goat sucker.” And like Bigfoot, the chupacabra also has eluded capture and provided no credible evidence that it exists.

Still, at least one citizen scientist sees the chupacabra as both a cultural phenomenon and a modern spin on the world’s most storied bloodsucker.

“It’s basically a vampire or a small, evil, fairy-type creature, which are popular archetypes in Latino culture,” said Ken Gerhard, a docent at the San Antonio Zoo and a widely recognized cryptozoologist.

Cryptozoology is the study and search for so-called “cryptids,” hidden animals whose existence defies scientific evidence or substantiation, such as Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster, bizarre beasts that live on in alleged sightings and indecipherable photos and videos.

Gerhard has traveled the world in search of such “X-Files” fare, skeptical as Dana Scully yet still wanting to believe like Fox Mulder. “I’ve never found one yet,” Gerhard said. “But I still look.”

When it comes to chupacabras, Gerhard said they just aren’t the most credible cryptids. He noted there’s neither physical evidence a chupacabra exists nor any sort of biological reality or animal group that a chupacabra would fit in to.

“It’s almost a little bit too weird,” Gerhard said.

Yet more than 25 years since its first alleged sighting, Gerhard said the chupacabra remains a quirky cucuy or boogeyman that fits well into pop culture and especially Latin culture.

So much so that the San Antonio Zoo the zoo opened the first-ever chupacabra exhibit at a zoological facility in September. Located by the zoo’s bat habitat, a replica of the fabled creature greets patrons with a face full of fangs and a back full of quills.

“We’re excited to educate the public and our visitors about the elusive and legendary chupacabra,” San Antonio Zoo President and CEO Tim Morrow said in a statement at the time. “This new one-of-a-kind habitat is sure to spark both the imagination of what wildlife exists that we haven’t yet discovered and the desire to conserve species, both known and unknown.”

Just days after that zoo debut, an anonymous rancher on San Antonio’s South Side reportedly killed a strange creature that was stalking his livestock. His first guess: “Chupacabra!”Rob Coke, director of veterinary care at the San Antonio Zoo, reportedly looked at photos of the carcass and deemed it a coyote with mange.

Which is it? chupa-fact or chupa-fiction? Or maybe it’s both? Here’s what we know about the chupacabra. At least, what they want us to know.

A Puerto Rican export. The chupacabra, or “Venator nocturnus” according to the San Antonio Zoo exhibit, stalks most of South and Central America as well as northern Mexico and the southern United States. That is, according to reports of livestock deaths attributed to the creature.

The first chupacabra sightings date back to March 1995 in Puerto Rico, where reports circulated of several sheep found dead with puncture wounds in their chest and purportedly drained of their blood.

A comedian came up with the name. Puerto Rican comedian Silverio Pérez coined the term “chupacabra” in 1995 while discussing the creature’s attacks. The Spanish word literally translates to “goat-sucker,” as in “chupa” (“to suck”) and “cabra” (“goat”). The name comes from the creature’s purported habit of sucking the blood of goats and other livestock.

An urban legend with different legs. The chupacabra often is described as a hairless reptilian creature around 3 feet tall with gray-green skin and spines or quills down its back. But how it walks depends on where it’s spotted.

South and Central America sightings describe the chupacabra as a goblinlike humanoid that walks upright on two legs, while sightings in Mexico and the US describe the chupacabra as a canine or doglike creature that walks on all fours.

Gerhard was not involved in the chupacabra exhibit at the San Antonio Zoo, but said its canine-leaning depiction of the cryptid is “a wonderful synthesis” of the varying chupacabra descriptions.

On ExpressNews.com: Yep, San Antonio gets its share of wild alligators. On guard, Fluffy!

H.R. Giger may have inspired the first description. The first eyewitness account of the chupacabra likens its appearance to Sil, a sinewy alien-human hybrid with spines down her back in the 1995 sci-fi horror film, “Species.” Sil was designed by H.R. Giger, the Swiss artist famous for the title terror of the “Alien” films.

In August 1995, Madelyne Tolentino in Puerto Rico alleged she saw a chupacabra in the municipality of Canóvanas. Researcher and skeptic Benjamin Radford interviewed Tolentino for his 2011 book, “Tracking the Chupacabra.” He concluded her description was based on the creature from “Species,” which Tolentino had seen just the week before her report.

Gerhard believes the internet popularized Tolentino’s description and variations spun from there.

Then again, it’s likely a mangy coyote. As Coke with the San Antonio Zoo noted, most chupacabra sightings in Mexico and the United States are debunked as coyotes with severe mange. Likewise, stray Mexican hairless dogs get mistaken for chupacabras.

Gerhard has examined half a dozen animal carcasses referred to as chupacabras. He said DNA testing and bone and skull analysis revealed all of them were dogs or coyotes with some sort of mange or genetic deformity.

They don’t really suck blood, either. Dead livestock attributed to chupacabra attacks may bear puncture wounds, but those holes tend to correspond to bites made by canine teeth. There also are no reported autopsies that confirm the dead animals were drained of their blood.

So why do so many accounts mention bloodless victims? Gerhard noted when an animal dies, its body goes into rigor mortis and its blood drains to the lowest part of the body where it coagulates. This gives the carcass a gaunt, drained appearance.

On ExpressNews.com: Ringtails, a catlike creature with the head of a fox, on the rise in San Antonio’s Stone Oak

A ufologist put San Antonio on the map for chupacabra investigation. Horror writer and San Antonio native Whitley Strieber is perhaps best known for “Communion,” his 1987 account of alleged experiences with aliens. But Gerhard noted Strieber also was instrumental in a chupacabra investigation.

In 2004, a rancher killed and buried the so-called “Elmendorf Beast,” an alleged chupacabra blamed for livestock attacks in South Bexar County. Strieber had the animal exhumed for analysis at the San Antonio Zoo. Later DNA analysis at the University of California, Davis concluded it was a coyote with mange.

Barely a blip on TV series. Guess Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster get all the plumb roles. About the only major TV series time dedicated to the chupacabra is a 1997 monster-of-the-week episode of “The X-Files” and a 2014 episode of “Grimm.”

But oh what a TV movie. Eat your heart out, “Sharknado.” In the 2013 TV movie “Chupacabra vs. The Alamo,” Erik Estrada plays Carlos Seguin, a tough DEA agent who discovers a that bunch of doglike chupacabras have been making mincemeat of drug cartel members. Seguin and his band of desperate heroes make a last stand against the mythical blood-hounds at, of course, the Alamo.
