THE PROFOUND UFO ENCOUNTERS OF CELEBRITIES, POP STARS AND THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS PRIZE FIGHTER, MUHAMMAD ALI

Shirley MacLaine Meets The Pleiadians

Shirley MacLaine Meets The Pleiadians

There are UFOs among the stars. You must to some degree believe this or you would not likely be reading this article. But according to Timothy Green Beckley, a writer, editor and CEO of the Inner Light/Global Communications publishing company, there are UFOs among the stars of the HUMAN kind, celebrities rendered mere awestruck mortals by encounters with ships, occupants and the psychic traces left behind in the wake of a UFO experience. 

Beckley’s new book on the subject of celebrity encounters is called “Shirley MacLaine Meets The Pleiadians, Plus The Amazing Flying Saucer Experiences of Celebrities, Rock Stars and the Rich and Famous.” In the interest of total disclosure, I wrote an introductory chapter on Shirley and contributed a section on rock star Sammy Hagar. Beyond that, this one is totally Beckley’s baby. 

The dedication to finding the truth behind the UFO phenomenon began for the titular Shirley when she was a young girl living in Virginia. She recorded in her diary the legendary sightings over nearby Washington, D.C., in 1952, and began to collect clippings from the era’s print media accounts. 

Later, as an adult, she took time out from her Oscar-winning career as an actress to delve deeply into the UFO mystery. In the first of her bestselling autobiographical books about her spiritual search, 1983’s “Out On A Limb,” Shirley wrote about visiting a UFO contactee named “David,” whom she said was a composite character based on UFO experiencers of her acquaintance. 

She journeyed to Peru with “David” to see firsthand the locations where flying saucers are said to have touched down and made contact with the indigenous peoples. While she was initially troubled by “David’s” declaration that he considered himself to have actually met extraterrestrials and shared a telepathic relationship with an alien female, she slowly began to see there might be some truth to what “David” said, including the idea that she had been chosen by his Pleiadian friends to spread their message throughout the world by writing about the alien race in “Out On A Limb.”     

The book also includes an account of Shirley and “David’s” visit to Lake Titicaca, where local folklore alluded to a lot of unusual and unexplained occurrences, like strange underground noises, lights and flying objects. At the well-known Inca ruins at Machu Picchu, locals gathered around the two interlopers to excitedly tell the story of a “flying egg” that had risen from a lake in the area accompanied by five smaller black spheres. 

“They hovered for a few minutes and then flew out into space,” yelled a tamale vendor. 

Eduard “Billy” Albert Meier, the controversial Swiss “UFO Prophet,” also received a visit from Shirley, as recounted in Shirley’s most recent book, 2007’s “Sage-ing While Age-ing.” Shirley traveled to Meier’s village of Hinderschmudruti in Switzerland in 1981 along with Lee and Brit Elders, the authors of a book on Meier called “UFO: Contact from the Pleiades.” 

“For about two weeks,” Shirley writes, “I listened to Billy’s stories about contact with the Pleiades.”

Billy had had a lonely childhood, beaten by his father and ignored by his mother. When he was first contacted, while still a child, a craft landed in a field and an older man emerged who gave Billy encouragement and love. As an adult, Billy experienced contact with a craft in the countryside near his village about twice a month, usually around 2 A.M.

Like “David,” Billy claimed to be in contact with a female from the Pleiades who delivered the standard warnings and consolations about Earth’s future given to all contactees. Thus Shirley began to cement her belief – not only in aliens who communicated directly with Earthlings – but also that said aliens came, originally, from the Pleiades star system. Shirley has been taking huge doses of ridicule ever since, even from some within the UFO community. 

A BOXER THROWS HIS PUNCHES AT UFO NAYSAYERS

Beckley writes that, of all the famous folks he spent time with discussing UFOs and theories about extraterrestrials, the former heavyweight champ, Muhammad Ali, was the most engaging when talking about his personal experiences.

The two had met for the first time when Beckley got permission to interview Ali as he jogged through New York’s Central Park in training to fight contender Oscar Bonavena. Beckley was grateful that Ali ran at a pace he could keep up with as Ali told the story of his UFO sighting.

“I happened to look up just before dawn,” Ali began, “as I often do while running, and there hovering above us was this brilliant light hanging as if by an invisible thread. At first I thought it was a beacon projected from a helicopter. But moments later a similar object passed in front of us. 

“I brought it to the attention of my trainer, who was standing nearby” the fighter went on. “We watched them come from behind the skyline and move slowly across the sky for at least 15 minutes. The best I can describe the sighting is to say they were just round and big.” 

A number of reporters traveling with the champ jumped on the story and it was picked up by the wire services. The resulting coverage led Beckley to set up his own follow-up interview to learn more about the anomalous event. The mainstream media, unfortunately, treated Ali’s experience as a joke and the champ wanted to make sure that Beckley understood that he was quite serious about what he had seen. He told Beckley he had had previous sightings, a total of 16 so far. He also invited Beckley to visit him at his hotel so that Ali could tell him some more of his sightings stories. 

In the champ’s hotel room, where he had several of his paintings on display, Ali told Beckley and the small assembled throng of reporters and training camp assistants that UFOs have been “watching me for some time now. Many times, in the early morning hours, if you look up in the sky you can see them playing tag between the stars, really high up. I’ve had a good number of sightings myself. The closest one happened when a cigar-shaped ship hovered over a car I was a passenger in one night driving north on the New Jersey Turnpike. What a sight that was. We could see the shadow made by the UFO as it passed over the pavement of the road in the light of the full moon.”

Ali’s voice shifted to a more confidential tone, and he said, “I don’t like to talk about this much, but we all seem to be open-minded here. One day, walking through the Florida Everglades, I saw this ship land, and, as I watched, a door slid open and a ramp projected itself onto the ground. Out stepped a human-looking figure more than seven feet tall who proceeded to walk down the ramp and stand in front of me. ‘Muhammad,’ he said, ‘you will beat Sonny Liston in . . .”

The room filled with laughter at another of Ali’s famous put-ons. 

As Ali excused himself to take a shower, he pressed a slip of paper with his unlisted phone number into Beckley’s hand. When the intrepid reporter called three weeks later, the champ asked in jest, “You sure Joe Frazier didn’t tell you to call?” UFOS Among the Stars15

The champ asked Beckley to bring along any photos, films, slides – anything he had on flying saucers – and come to his home in New Jersey to discuss the material. Beckley vividly recalls the house, set back 500 feet from the road with a Rolls Royce parked in the driveway. 

After being warmly greeted by Ali, Beckley and the friends he had brought with him showed the champ some motion picture film taken in West Virginia of possible flying saucers. At Ali’s request, they ran the film three times while the champ pointed out the similarities between the objects on the film and what he had seen personally. Ali then asked if he could have copies of the film made so that he could show them when he lectured at colleges around the country. 

“UFOs tie in with what my teacher, Elijah Muhammad, says,” Ali explained. He then read aloud from his teacher’s book, “Message to the Black Man in America,” in which the elder Muslim compared the modern flying saucers phenomenon to Ezekiel’s vision of a wheel in the sky. 

Sometime later, Beckley visited Ali at his training camp in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania at Deer Lake. This time Beckley’s entourage included the super psychic Uri Geller, who demonstrated his preternatural gifts by causing the stone inside the ring of Ali’s ex-wife Belinda to simply disappear. Geller also made a deep impression – merely by lightly touching it with his finger – in the large, metal religious medallion worn by one of the sparring partners at the camp. 

After the “magical interlude” was over, Ali told Beckley about a sighting that had taken place over two nights the previous summer. As the champ trained to fight George Foreman, he observed a cigar-shaped ship that reaffirmed the beliefs taught by Elijah Muhammad about the wheels seen by Ezekiel that would one day come to judge the Earth. On the second night of the sighting, the craft was also seen by Ali’s business manager, Gene Kilroy, who acknowledged that he no longer felt the champ’s vivid imagination had been the true source of the stories the champ had told. 

During their next and final meeting, Ali told Beckley that he had not regretted speaking openly about his experiences, adding that, “I hope others will listen in the future as I’m convinced UFOs are of tremendous importance to the whole world.” 

SAMMY DAVIS JR. REMAINED UNAFRAID

There was a secret side, Beckley writes, to the late Sammy Davis, Jr., who held a little-known belief in UFOs based on his personal sightings experiences. 

“I was never afraid of aliens or whatever it is that pilots these UFOs,” Sammy declared in a phone conversation with Beckley conducted from Sammy’s Las Vegas hotel room. “There were a lot of sightings around 1952-53, and I wasn’t to be left out.”

Sammy said he was with a group of people when they spotted discs literally “floating overhead.” He was amazed at how they could accelerate from a dead stop to fantastic speeds. “First they would stand still,” Sammy recalled, “and then they would take off and stop again before finally shooting away in a flash.” 

Sammy recounted another sighting that had taken place as he drove to the Boston-area hotel he was staying at along with members of his band. The craft was “immense and glowed brilliantly from the lights that surrounded it. Actually, the object was so bright that I had a hard time keeping my eyes on it.”

Sammy and his friends watched in awe as the object hovered quite close. 

“Some of the guys with me were afraid that the object was going to come after us,” he said. “They felt it might attack us, but I didn’t have any such fear, as I felt quite strongly that if they wanted to harm the human race, they could have done so a long time ago.”  

Beckley writes that Sammy never told him just what Sammy’s good friend, the “Chairman of the Board,” Frank Sinatra, thought of Sammy’s interest in the strange goings-on in our skies. 

STUART WHITMAN GETS UFO SUPPORT DURING “THE GREAT BLACKOUT”

The actor Stuart Whitman, known for his gutsy performances in movies like “The Sound and the Fury” and “The Comancheros” (in which he costarred with John Wayne), spoke to Beckley by phone from his home in Hollywood. Stuart told Beckley about an “incredible incident” that had happened in November 1965 on the night of the “Great Blackout” that left 15 million homes and businesses without electricity. 

Beckley feels Stuart’s story is an important example of the aliens attempting to reach out to well-known celebrities. 

“I was sleeping in my room on the twelfth floor of a New York Hotel,” Stuart said, “when I heard a loud buzzing sound akin to the noise made by a police siren. Then I heard my name being called. ‘WHITMAN, WHITMAN!’ It was as though the voice was being projected over a loudspeaker not far from where I was resting.”

Stuart felt drawn to a window by some unseen force, and he saw two luminescent, egg-shaped objects which were clouded in a haze that made it impossible to discern any specific details. One was bright orange and the other blue. The voices continued, saying that he had been selected for contact because he had no malice or hatred in his heart. The aliens then delivered the standard contactee message about nuclear proliferation and the chaos and evil infecting the world. 

Stuart said he thinks the aliens orchestrated the blackout to provide only a small demonstration of what they were capable of, powers they might be forced to use to prevent our self-annihilation through warfare and our negative impact on other inhabited planets. A second blackout, in December 1965, which affected four military bases in New Mexico and Texas and plunged at least a million people into darkness, served as further confirmation of this idea for Stuart. 

“I was not frightened, but strangely elated,” Stuart told Beckley. “I had no fear, as I somehow knew they would do me no harm.” 

DRUMMER BUDDY RICH: UFO “SUPER BUFF”

Buddy tried to convince other celebrities about the reality of UFOs.

Buddy tried to convince other celebrities about the reality of UFOs.

Jazz drummer Buddy Rich was what Beckley calls a true “UFO enthusiast,” similar to comedian Jackie Gleason in his fanatical devotion to the subject. Buddy had several sightings and was even a member of the Center for UFO Studies as well as being a friend of Dr. J. Allen Hynek, the group’s director.   

Beckley spoke to Buddy between sets in the dressing room of Buddy’s Place, his New York supper club, about his initial sighting experience. 

“It was back in the summer of 1954,” Buddy said. “At the time, I was appearing with my band in Atlanta, Georgia. My brother was right beside me in the front seat of our sports car. We were driving along, on the way to do a show, when I happened to glance through the windshield of the auto and saw two brightly illuminated objects coming out from behind the dark side of the moon.” 

The brothers stopped the car in the parking lot of the club to get a better look. The objects were now doing figure-eights in front of their astounded eyes. The UFOs seemed to be playing tag with each other and were making incredible turns at impossibly high speeds, the G-forces of which would crushed whoever was onboard. Within minutes, 200 patrons of the club who had heard about the aerial ballet came out to see for themselves. After a few more minutes, the objects shot straight up and disappeared into the starry sky. 

Buddy dutifully phoned an Air Force base about 20 miles from the club and was told by a base official that they had received over 500 calls reporting the incident but their radar indicated nothing was flying in the area at the time. Buddy says he has since learned that this is the standard military “cop-out.” 

Buddy had another sighting in 1966 during which he and his wife were nearly driven off the road by a gigantic saucer-shaped craft. Unable to shake the incident from his mind, he began collecting books, news clippings and photos of these elusive discs, eventually amassing a sizeable file of information. 

As part of his crusading efforts, Buddy tried to convince other celebrities that flying saucers are real, including the late “Tonight Show” host, Johnny Carson. Carson continually rebuffed Buddy’s entreaties to take the subject seriously, that is, until the time Carson saw one himself while staying at the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas. Carson, still stammering from nervousness and shock, called Buddy to tell him the story. In spite of having his own close encounter, however, Carson was never amenable to talking about UFOs on the air.

THE SECRET OF MOUNT SHASTA AND A DWELLER ON TWO PLANETS

THE ASTOUNDING SECRETS OF JAMES W. MOSELEY

AND AWAY WE GO . . . THE NIGHT JACKIE GLEASON SAW THE CORPSES OF THE LITTLE MEN FROM “MARS”

Jackie Gleason

Taken out of the realm of urban myth, this twice told tale can finally be confirmed!

Yes, indeed, it’s time to set the record straight, thanks to a little help from an expatriate friend of mine now residing with his family in the UK.

For years, rumors had swirled about in UFOlogical circles that the late comedian Jackie Gleason was among a handful who had witnessed something so rare and so bizarre that their experience defies rationality to the point where utter disbelief sets in and the story has got to be denied in order to keep one’s sanity.

My recently released book, “SHIRLEY MACLAINE MEETS THE PLEIADIANS, PLUS THE AMAZING FLYING SAUCER EXPERIENCES OF CELEBRITIES, ROCK STARS AND THE RICH AND FAMOUS”, had once again started to stir up a hornet’s nest of controversy when I realized I would have to take it upon myself to settle the issue now and forever.

I was slated to appear June 16, 2015, as a guest on Coast to Coast AM with host George Noory.

The main topic for the evening was scheduled to be Celebrities and UFOs. There was, in particular, one celebrity-related UFO incident that I wanted to get into, but in order to do so I had to call upon my old friend and homey in UFOland, Larry Warren. I had previously discussed this episode in some detail with mutual friend Peter Robbins on my podcast, “Unraveling The Secrets” – https://www.youtube.com/my_videos?o=U 

But we need to go back a few years to a more “innocent” time in UFOlogy when things were a bit less confusing and more cut and dried than they are today in a field that some would consider to be a deeply ingrained part of an ongoing cosmic media circus.

Way back in the mid-1960s, I got a letter in the mail from Jackie Gleason Productions, Hollywood, Florida, ordering a copy of a mimeographed book, UFOS AROUND THE WORLD, I had put together.  This, to me, was confirmation of what I had heard for a long time . . . that “the Great One” was personally involved in researching UFOs. Supposedly – and I’ve since found out that this is true – Gleason had one of the largest UFO and metaphysical libraries in private hands. The collection of thousands of volumes was known to stretch from floor to ceiling and included numerous rare titles.

Long John Nebel

In the 1950s, when Gleason was still doing his network TV show in New York, he would frequently drop into the studios of Long John NebelWOR Radio at 1440 Broadway to sit around an open microphone all night and exchange words with “experts” in the UFO field. A personal friend of Long John Nebel, the talk show radio pioneer, Gleason would often use harsh language to “put to rest” those incredible fanciful details of trips aboard UFOs to other planets that he personally did not “buy.” And while he was not a believer in the stories told by such contactees as George Adamski and others who claimed they had been to Mars and Venus, he didn’t dispute the fact that something strange was indeed flying around over our heads. 

The reason for his belief was simple: Gleason had sighted UFOs on at least two occasions that he was willing to admit to in public. Both sightings took place near Miami and convinced the big man that “these were definitely not objects made on our planet. They weren’t secret weapons but were solid craft.” Gleason added that “on both occasions, the UFOs reflected the rays of the sun and were low enough for me to determine that they could not be explained by ordinary means.”

“Okay! So he had two sightings,” you might say, “but what could be the big deal about that?” Well, here’s where the tale gets a bit wilder.

A story circulated by Gleason’s ex-wife, Beverly, has Jackie actually viewing the bodies of several aliens who died when their craft crashed in the Southwest. The story was carried originally in “The National Enquirer,” and though Beverly Gleason later confirmed it to members of the press who were able to track her down, independent confirmation of Gleason’s supposed experience – for the longest time – could not be obtained.

Now, with the striking revelations of a young man who knew Gleason personally, it can safely be said that such an event did take place.

Larry Warren (Photo by Timothy Green Beckley)

Most of those reading this will instantly recognize the name Larry Warren.  Warren was an Airman First Class stationed atBentwaters Air Force Base in England (a NATO installation staffed mainly by U.S. servicemen) when an incredible series of events took place over Christmas week of 1980.

A UFO was picked up on radar and subsequently came down just outside the perimeter of the base in a dense forest. On the first of several nights of confrontation with the Unknown, three security police ventured into the area and came across an eerie-looking object hovering just above the ground. One of the MPs was mesmerized by the UFO and was unable to move for nearly an hour. While in this mental state, he received some sort of telepathic message that the craft would return. 

For the next few nights, up to 80 U.S. servicemen, British bobbies, as well as civilians from some nearby farms, witnessed an historic event. According to Larry Warren, who stood within feet of this craft from another world, three occupants came out of the ship and actually communicated with a high ranking member of the U.S. Air Force.

This close encounter at Bentwaters has become the subject of several books (see “From Out Of The Blue,” Jenny Randles, Inner Light Publications) and has been given wide publicity on CNN, Home Box Office and “Unsolved Mysteries.” Warren has, in a sense, become somewhat of a celebrity himself as he remains in the public eye, willing to talk about what he observed. He has even been at odds with other members of the Bentwaters “observation party” who have altered their stories and denied for a time that Larry was even stationed at the base when this all went down – while in truth Warren was the original whistle-blower who ignited a firestorm by revealing what happened over a period of three days almost four decades ago.

But the Bentwaters incident is not the theme of this intriguing story, but only serves as a form of backup validation.

“Jackie Gleason was interested in hearing my story firsthand,” Warren reiterated on Coast to Coast AM – almost exactly what he had said for the pages of my book. “In May 1986, I was living in Connecticut and both CNN and HBO had run pieces on the Bentwaters case. Through mutual friends who knew members of his family, I was told that Gleason would like to talk with me privately in his home in Westchester County. So the meeting was set for a Saturday when we would both have some time to relax.”

One can almost imagine three million listeners across North America began listening more intently, perhaps turning up the audio a bit as Warren spoke from his home in Great Britain.

After being formally introduced, the two men ventured into Gleason’s recreation room, complete with pool table and full-size bar. 

“There were hundreds of UFO books all over the place,” Warren remembered, “but Jackie was quick to tell me that this was only a tiny portion of his entire collection, which was housed in his home in Florida.”

It wasn’t until after Warren had downed a few beers and Gleason had had a number of drinks – “his favorite Rob Roys” – that the conversation really got down to brass tacks.

“At some point, Gleason turned to me and said, ‘I want to tell you something very amazing that will probably come out some day anyway. We’ve got ‘em!’ ‘Got what?’ I wanted to know. ‘Aliens!’ Gleason sputtered, catching his breath.”

President Nixon and Gleason were golf buddies.

According to Warren, Jackie proceeded to tell him the intriguing set of circumstances that led him to the stunning conclusion that extraterrestrials have arrived on our cosmic shores.

“It was back when Nixon was in office that something truly amazing happened to me,” Gleason explained. “We were close golfing buddies and had been out on the golf course all day when, somewhere around the 15th hole, the subject of UFOs came up. Not many people know this, but the President shares my interest in this matter and has a large collection of books in his home on UFOs just like I do. For some reason, however, he never really took me into his confidence about what he personally knew to be true . . . one of the reasons being that he was usually surrounded by so many aides and advisers.”

Later that night, matters changed radically when Richard Nixon showed up at Gleason’s house around midnight. “He was all alone for a change. There were no secret service agents with him or anyone else. I said, ‘Mr. President, what are you doing here?’ and he said he wanted to take me someplace and show me something.”

Gleason got into the President’s private car and they sped off into the darkness, their destination being Homestead Air Force Base. “I remember we got to the gate and this young MP came up to the car to look to see inside and his jaw seemed to drop a foot when he saw who was behind the wheel. He just sort of pointed and we headed off.”

Warren says that later Gleason found out that the secret service was going absolutely crazy trying to find out where Nixon was. “We drove to the very far end of the base in a segregated area,” Gleason went on, “finally stopping near a well-guarded building. The security police saw us coming and just sort of moved back as we passed them and entered the structure.

“There were a number of labs we passed through first before we entered a section where Nixon pointed out what he said was the wreckage from a flying saucer, enclosed in several large cases.” Gleason admitted that his initial reaction was that this was all a joke brought on by their earlier conversation on the golf course.

Did Jackie Gleason actually see preserved ET bodies?

But it wasn’t! As Gleason soon learned. “Next, we went into an inner chamber and there were six or eight of what looked like glass-topped Coke freezers. Inside them were the mangled remains of what I took to be children. Then, upon closer examination, I saw that some of the other figures looked quite old. Most of them were terribly mangled as if they had been in an accident.”

According to Larry Warren’s testimony regarding his lengthy conversation with Gleason, the comic said, “All in all, it was a very pathetic sight. At one point, the President had tears in his eyes, and finally I realized that this was not his way of trying to be humorous.”

Warren tried to pin down Gleason for additional information as to how the military had managed to obtain the wreckage and alien corpses. He wanted to know if they might possibly be from the crash of a disc near Roswell, New Mexico, which had been spoken of so often in the literature. “But Jackie could only shake his head and say he didn’t know for sure, since President Nixon didn’t really fill him in on too many of the details surrounding this very weird display. Gleason did give me a bit more information on the beings themselves.

“He said they were very small, no more than three feet tall. Had grayish-colored skin and slanted eyes that were very deeply set. I forget whether he said they had three or four fingers on each hand, but they definitely were not human . . . of this he was most certain!”

For three weeks following his trip with Nixon to Homestead Air Force Base, the world famous entertainer couldn’t sleep and couldn’t eat. “Jackie told me that he was very traumatized by all of this. He just couldn’t understand why our government wouldn’t tell the public all they knew about UFOs and space visitors. He said he even drank more heavily than usual until he could regain some of his composure and come back down to everyday reality.”

Larry Warren is pretty sure that Gleason wasn’t lying to him.

“You could tell that he was very sincere; he took the whole affair very seriously, and I could tell that he wanted to get the matter off his chest, and this was why he was telling me all of this.”

And, as far as Larry Warren was concerned, the Great One’s personal testimony only added extra credibility to his own firsthand experience with aliens while he was in the service.

“Jackie felt just like I do that the government needs to ‘come clean’ and tell us all it knows about space visitors. It’s time they stopped lying to the public and release all the evidence they have. When they do, then we’ll all be able to see the same things the late Jackie Gleason did!”

Hopefully this day may arrive soon.

At the end of the Coast to Coast AM interview with Larry, and before I was to go back on for another hour of discussion and phone calls, Warren was invited to come back onto the show by George Noory, to which Larry Warren quipped, “Well, it’s only taken 35 years to be invited on,” referring to the fact that everyone else involved in the Bentwaters incident had been in front of the Coast microphones numerous times. Noory, the listeners and myself all saw the humor in this and got a chuckle out of Larry’s snippet of sarcasm. But we did bring clarification to a very serious topic – that Jackie Gleason did see some sort of strange beings not of this dimension or plane of reality.

QUESTION – WHAT’S SMALLER THAN A LUNCHBOX AND AS DEADLY AS A NUCLEAR BOMB? THE MYSTERIOUS RED MERCURY

By Sean Casteel

The Final Nail In Your Coffin!

The Final Nail In Your Coffin!

The CIA says it doesn’t exist. Terrorists and rogue nations have offered to pay millions of dollars to procure it. Scientists fear its lethal potential.

Red Mercury – this ominous name has long been whispered among the operatives in the nuclear underground and in the dark avenues of international espionage.

Red mercury is a compound containing mercury that has undergone massive irradiation. When exploded, it creates tremendous heat and pressure – the same type needed to trigger a fusion device such as a mini-neutron bomb.

Before, an obstacle to creating a nuclear bomb was the need for plutonium, which, when exploded, creates a fusion reaction in hydrogen atoms. But red mercury has changed that. The cheap substance has allegedly been produced in Russia and shipped on the black market throughout the world.

Do terrorist organizations now have red mercury neutron bombs? Some scientists say that with the help of red mercury, nuclear weapons of unimagined power could be contained in a package smaller than a softball and easily hidden in cities all over the world.

The potential is frighteningly real.

A man sits on a park bench across the street from the White House eating his lunch. He carries with him a brown paper bag – or perhaps even a lunch box. He keeps to himself. No one has any reason to pay any attention to him. Too bad they don’t. After five or ten minutes, he gets up and walks away. He has left his “empty” bag behind. Five minutes later, there is a deafening explosion. A bomb has exploded that is so powerful – yet so small – that it kills everyone in the White House and most people within several yards in all directions.

The red mercury compound causes the neutrons to do the damage. They also blow out computers through electromagnetic pulsation. Because the bombs are so light and undetectable, these devices can be smuggled easily across the border hidden inside a coffee can.

Researcher Tim R. Swartz has been investigating the possible effects of Red Mercury for over a decade.

The foregoing are the chilling opening paragraphs of the Red Mercury section of “The Final Nail In Your Coffin: A Pox To All Of Mankind,” the new release from Inner Light/Global Communications authored by the prolific conspiracy theory researcher Tim R. Swartz.

THE FATHER OF THE NEUTRON BOMB SAID RED MERCURY IS A GENUINE THREAT!

The “bomber on the park bench” scenario Swartz recounts above sounds like something out of a James Bond movie, but Swartz’s actual source is the late physicist Samuel T. Cohen, the inventor of the neutron bomb. 

Cohen took an active part in the public debate over whether red mercury exists and is being sold on the black market. Cohen claimed that red mercury was a real-world threat, a powerful ballo-technic material that directly compressed the fusion fuel without the need for a fission primary. In other words, it simplified the chemical processes needed for detonating a nuclear weapon and made actually building such a device much cheaper. 

Bombs using red mercury had no critical mass, he said, and could be developed at any size. But Cohen also claimed to know that the Soviets had produced a number of “micro-nukes” based on red mercury that were as large as a baseball and weighed ten pounds. The existence of such weapons meant that any effort to control nuclear proliferation based on fissile material was thus hopeless, according to Cohen. 

ESPIONAGE, MURDER, RUMORS AND DECEPTION

But as Swartz explains in “The Final Nail In Your Coffin,” the red mercury story is not completely cut and dried yet. There is a long trail of espionage, murder and black market con artists that makes for a fascinating tale of intrigue and deception. 

For example, there is the story of Ian Kidger, the international sales director of British-owned Thor Chemicals, which imports mercury waste into South Africa for recycling. Kidger hung up the phone in early November 1991, told his wife he would be back shortly, and slipped out of his Johannesburg home. He was found several days later stuffed into the trunk of his BMW sedan by two car thieves. His arms, legs, buttocks and head had been sawn off and covered in a black mercury compound. 

The killing was first blamed on eco-terrorists angry about Thor Chemicals’ polluting the soil and groundwater, but the South African media heard the suggestion that red mercury was involved and ran with the more sensational story. Kidger’s murder remains unsolved and the existence of red mercury unproved. 

When the substance first appeared on the international black market in 1977, the supposedly top secret nuclear material was “red” because it came from the Soviet Union. Later it took on an actual red color. 

But the U.S. Department of Energy was quick to call it much ado about nothing. 

“Take a bogus material,” a report from the agency read, “give it an enigmatic name, exaggerate its physical properties and intended uses, mix in some human greed and intrigue, and voila: one half-baked scam.” 

The report continued by saying that the “wonder substance” was offered as a modern philosopher’s stone that can do just about anything: it makes stealth aircraft stealthier, infrared sensors more sensitive, counterfeits harder to detect, and atom bombs smaller and easier to build. Sometimes it is said to be radioactive, sometimes not.

All the samples of alleged red mercury recovered by official agencies throughout the world have failed to have any special military application. Samples have been shown to include pure mercury, mercury tinged with brick dust, depleted nuclear reactor fuel and various familiar mercury compounds like mercuric oxide. One lazy con artist tried to sell mercury in a bottle painted red with nail polish. 

COHEN NEVER BACKED DOWN: RED MERCURY IS NO JOKE! 

But if red mercury could essentially be laughed off as a ridiculous, non-threatening joke, why did someone with the scientific stature of Samuel Cohen argue otherwise? 

In 1944, Cohen had been part of the top-secret Manhattan Project to develop atomic weapons at Los Alamos, New Mexico. He was present at the first atomic explosion and saw firsthand the awesome power of the weapon as human history entered a new age. After the war ended, Cohen joined the Rand Corporation, where he began to be obsessed with creating a neutron bomb, one that would use nuclear fusion in a different way. 

With Cohen’s proposed weapon, the detonation would still produce an explosion, but one much smaller than standard nuclear weapons. The main impact of a neutron bomb would be the release of high energy neutrons that would take lives far beyond the blast area but would also destroy fewer buildings, cars, tanks, roads, highways and other structures. And, unlike standard nuclear bombs that leave long-term contamination of the soil and infrastructure, the neutron radiation quickly dissipates after the explosion. 

In spite of all those apparent advantages, the neutron bomb was never given the green light by U.S. politicians or the military establishment. When Cohen continued to advocate the bomb’s deployment in Vietnam, the Rand Corporation fired him in 1969. He went on to help the French build their own arsenal of neutron bombs and eventually persuaded Ronald Reagan to construct a thousand neutron bombs that were later dismantled by the Bush administration after the fall of the Berlin Wall. 

Meanwhile, Cohen claimed that there was evidence that China had a stockpile of neutron bombs and had received the technology to build them from the U.S. Russia and Israel were believed to have them as well. But Cohen’s bigger concern was how the use of red mercury made it relatively easy to build the neutron bombs he himself had invented. 

Although he never divulged his sources for the information, Cohen believed red mercury had been successfully produced in Russia and was being sold in countries of the former Soviet Union to terrorists who could use the material to make the events of September 11, 2001, look pale by comparison. The rise of organized crime in Russia adds to the danger of the situation as trafficking in nuclear material – to include red mercury – is believed to be rampant.  

From Russia come official denials, but the “Jane’s” publications [a British publishing company generally considered to be the most reliable public source of information on warfare and transportation systems] in London say that red mercury is more than just a scam where peddlers deal in a nonexistent fantasy chemical. The “Jane’s” group claims that red mercury is produced in several Russian military centers, including some in Kazakhstan, at the rate of about 60 kg a year. Much of that is placed on the black market by the Russian mafia, where red mercury sells for about $300,000 a kilogram. Customers allegedly include Israel, Iran, Iraq, Libya and Pakistan, and some of them may be employing Russian scientists to assist in making low-yield nuclear weapons.

All of this does indeed paint a frightening picture. Will the U.S. and other countries find themselves held hostage with nuclear terrorism by groups bent on total world domination with their iron-handed fundamentalist extremism? How can we prevent this and other potential terrorist threats from destroying the world as we know it?

The Final Nail In Your Coffin! – A Pox To All Of Mankind: Morgellons And Red Mercury “Plagues”Created In NWO Labs Of “Mad Scientists”

Have UFO Occupants Created Deadly Plagues Throughout History?

FOLKSINGER JONI MITCHELL’S BATTLE WITH MORGELLONS, THE NEW SCOURGE
By Sean Casteel

Folksinger Joni Mitchell has endured the symptoms of Morgellons for years.

Folksinger Joni Mitchell has endured the symptoms of Morgellons for years.

On March 31, 2015, the legendary folk singer Joni Mitchell was hospitalized after being found unconscious in her Los Angeles home. At the time, it was unclear what had caused her to pass out, but Mitchell, who was 71 at the time of her hospitalization, had long identified herself as sufferer of the strange and controversial condition called Morgellons Disease.

Mitchell told “The Los Angeles Times” in a 2010 interview that Morgellons Disease “seems like it’s from outer space.” In her 2014 autobiography, entitled “Joni Mitchell: In Her Own Words,” she writes, “I couldn’t wear clothing. I couldn’t leave my house for several years. Sometimes it got so I’d have to crawl across the floor. My legs would cramp up, just like a polio spasm. It hit all of the places where I had polio.”
WHAT IS JONI MITCHELL’S BIZARRE MALADY?
The Final Nail In Your Coffin!

The Final Nail In Your Coffin!

The condition has been labeled Mitchell’s “Secret Torment” by one British newspaper, although she never made any effort to keep her condition hidden. Quite the opposite, in fact. But talking publicly about Morgellons is not an easy task, especially when the medical establishment refuses for the most part to believe the problem is even a physical “disease” at all.

Researcher, writer and radio host Tim R. Swartz has studied Morgellons closely for several years and has recently written a book on the subject called “The Final Nail In Your Coffin: A Pox To All Mankind.” (This latest offering from Inner Light/Global Communications is actually another of the company’s generous “two-books-in-one” packages and includes a book on the rumored substance “red mercury,” which is said to put nuclear capabilities in the hands of any terrorist with enough money to buy it.)

According to Swartz, “Those with Morgellons Disease describe feelings of insects scurrying below their skin and have mysterious sores that ooze out blue and white fibers, some as thick as spaghetti strands. Attempts to remove the fibers are said to produce shooting pains radiating from the site.” Sufferers also report fatigue and problems with short-term memory and concentration.

A MOTHER’S CRUSADE

Morgellons takes its name from the efforts of Mary Leitao, who in 2001 was a 43-year-old stay-at-home Mom and former lab technician in South Carolina. Her two-year-old son had begun to develop lesions on the inside of his lip that he said were caused by “bugs.” When Leitao’s son also developed sores and fibers of various colors growing out of his skin, she took him to several doctors, none of whom could find anything biologically wrong with him.

The debate rages on whether or not Morgellons is an actual disease.

The debate rages on whether or not Morgellons is an actual disease.

It was Leitao who coined her son’s ailment as “Morgellons,” after a condition described in 1674 by the British author Thomas Browne. Browne said the disorder caused children to “break out with harsh hairs on their backs.” But even the Morgellons Research Foundation says it is doubtful that the 17th century disease is related in any way to modern day Morgellons, Swartz writes.

After being turned away from a series of doctors, Leitao began a public campaign to raise public awareness of Morgellons, after which thousands of fellow sufferers made themselves known. But the medical community held fast to its diagnosis of “delusional parasitosis,” meaning the patient was mistaken in complaining about an infestation by insects under his or her skin but that this false belief could not be corrected by reasoning, persuasion or logical argument.

Meanwhile, all laboratory tests and pathogenic exams returned negative and offered no clinical confirmation of the patients’ complaints. Thus, physicians treat the condition as a mental illness and typically prescribe only antidepressants or other psychiatric medications.

In 2012, The Centers For Disease Control made public the their study of Morgellons, saying that “no common underlying medical condition or infectious source was identified,” and that the fibers were more likely picked up from clothing that got trapped in the sufferers’ sores. Like a Mayo Clinic study done in 2011, the CDC report reaffirmed the “delusional parasitosis” diagnosis.

Shortly after the CDC’s findings were published, Leitao dropped out of sight completely and hasn’t been heard from since. Not even the crusading mother’s contacts in the Morgellons community know where she has gone or have any idea how to contact her.

COULD MORGELLONS BE FROM MARS?

To give the medical community – somewhat begrudgingly – their due, maybe Morgellons is so hard to diagnose and analyze because it’s not an Earth-generated disease at all. Swartz puts forth his own provocative theory thusly: “What makes Morgellons so unique are the weird fibers that grow out of the victim’s skin. No other disease on Earth has this bizarre symptom. So could this mean that Morgellons originated somewhere other than Earth?”

Swartz points to a researcher named Mike Moore who discovered a meteor on a ranch in Texas in the early 1970s. Moore concluded that the unusual rock had formed under extremely dry conditions, was volcanic in origin, and most likely resulted when a large asteroid struck the surface of Mars. Upon first finding the meteorite, Moore concluded that – since it had just come through our atmosphere – it had most likely been “sterilized” by the high heat that melted its outer surface. Ten or fifteen years after first finding the space rock, Moore discovered that “fuzz” or “filaments” were coming out of the crevice that runs through one side of the meteorite.

Moore was left to wonder how a rock from Mars could be growing something that seemed to be alive. It was not until NASA announced in 1996 that they had found the possible remnants of life in a Martian meteorite that Moore began to consider that he was seeing some kind of Martian life growing on his own meteorite. When Moore put a sample from the space rock under a microscope, he found a piece of something that had obviously been some kind of plant or at least some kind of living thing. A later analysis of a section of Moore’s meteor conducted by a lab worker at the Roswell UFO Museum in New Mexico confirmed the presence of a fiber-like creature that moved on the slide as if trying to avoid being stuck there for examination.

THE REAL LIFE “ANDROMEDA STRAIN”?

Rocks blown off of Mars have been falling to Earth throughout history, potentially bringing with them the minute lifeforms that we now call Morgellons. The concept of a disease from outer space infecting unsuspecting Earthlings is not a new one, however.

The first novel by the late Michael Crichton, 1969’s “The Andromeda Strain,” is a techno-thriller documenting the efforts of a team of scientists investigating the outbreak of a deadly extraterrestrial microorganism in Arizona. The story begins when a military satellite returns to Earth. Aerial surveillance reveals that everyone in Piedmont, Arizona, the town closest to where the satellite landed, is apparently dead. The base commander suspects the satellite returned with an extraterrestrial organism and recommends activating Wildfire, a protocol for a government-sponsored team that counters extraterrestrial biological infestation.

After leading the reader through a suspenseful ordeal, the book concludes with the team of scientists heroically saving the day. The Andromeda Strain itself eventually mutates to a benign form and the whole effort is effectively covered up and given no media attention at all.

Crichton received many letters from readers asking if the story told in his bestselling book was somehow true. The novel was published just weeks before the first lunar landing and there was a general concern about whether the astronauts could bring back germs from the moon. The “germs from outer space” theme was treated lightly in some quarters, but, in the years after the novel’s release, any newly-discovered biological agent tended to be referred to as an “Andromeda Strain.” The term became synonymous with any potential pandemic: Marbug, Ebola, Bird Flu, and so on.

At this point, we can potentially add Morgellons Disease to that frightening list.

THERE’S A LAW AGAINST THAT, YOU KNOW

Unsurprisingly, 1969 was also the year that Title 14, Section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations went on the books making it illegal for U.S. citizens to have contact with extraterrestrials or their vehicles. Anyone found to have such contact can be jailed for one year and fined $5,000. The NASA administrator is empowered to determine with or without a hearing that a person or object has been “extraterrestrially exposed” and impose an indeterminate quarantine under armed guard, which could not be broken even by court order. There is no limit placed on the number of individuals who could thus be arbitrarily quarantined. The definition of “extraterrestrial exposure” is left entirely up to the NASA administrator.

The legislation was buried in a batch of regulations very few members of government probably bothered to read in its entirety and was slipped onto the books without public debate. In effect, the government of the U.S. has created a whole new criminal class: UFO contactees.

But NASA said the law is really directed at extraterrestrial viruses that could wipe out humankind completely. It may be a kind of whistling in the dark given that simply quarantining a few contactees does not automatically mean some kind of outer space contagion would have no other means of spreading. But it is nevertheless an interesting official acknowledgment that such things are taken seriously at some level of government and that the potential for diseases like Morgellons to have originated in some other world is at least considered a possibility as well.

WHO’S THAT YONDER DRESSED IN BLACK?

But an infestation from another world need not have happened only in the space age.

In a book called “The Gods of Eden,” first published in 1989, author William Bramley recounts the following chilling anecdote:

Death comes a calling.

Death comes a calling.

“In Brandenburg, Germany, there appeared fifteen men with ‘fearful faces and long scythes, with which they cut the oats, so that the swish could be heard from a great distance, but the oats remained standing.’ The visit of these men was followed immediately by a severe outbreak of plague in Brandenburg. Were the ‘scythes’ long instruments designed to spray poison or germ-laden gasses?

“Strange men in black, demons and other terrifying figures were observed in other European communities carrying ‘brooms’ or ‘scythes’ or ‘swords’ that were used to sweep or knock at people’s doors. The inhabitants of these houses fell ill with plague afterwards. It is from these reports that people created the popular image of death as a skeleton, a demon, a man in a black robe carrying a scythe.”

Notes writer Pat Bertram, in his online comments on Bramley’s account of the origins of the Grim Reaper as a familiar cultural symbol, “The Black Death began in Asia and spread to Europe between 1347 and 1350 where it killed over 25 million people, one-third of the population.” While the current thinking is that the plague was spread by rats in overcrowded cities, Bertram writes, not all outbreaks were preceded by rat infestation and the plague often struck isolated communities that had had no contact with infected areas.

Many people in stricken areas reported the disease was caused by “evil-smelling mists” that were frequently accompanied by bright lights and unusual activity in the skies. Sometimes the disease-bearing mist was seen to be coming from rocket-like airships. An epidemic in ancient times was also linked to similar mists, for which Hippocrates, the father of medicine, prescribed large public bonfires that he believed would get rid of the bad air.

AN INVADING SPACE FLOWER?

In the 1978 version of “The Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” one of those rare remakes that is as well thought of by critics as the original version, some of the characters engage in a brief exchange about where the invading “pod army” originates.
Elisabeth Driscoll, the movie’s primary heroine, says, “I have seen these flowers all over. They are growing like parasites on other plants. All of a sudden. Where are they coming from?”To which her friend, Nancy Bellicec, replies, “Outer space?”

Nancy’s husband, Jack Bellicec, interjects: “What are you talking about? A space flower?”

Nancy answers him, “Well, why not a space flower? Why do we always expect metal ships?”

Jack then says, “I NEVER expected metal ships.”

Some believe there is a connection between Morgellons and alien abductions. The fibers that are a symptom of the disease may be similar to an alien implant.

Some believe there is a connection between Morgellons and alien abductions. The fibers that are a symptom of the disease may be similar to an alien implant.

Which is a suggestion we should heed, even those of us in the UFO community. Perhaps Morgellons Disease is just the visible portion of an alien invasion being conducted with “space flowers” that carry with them a disease that our medical community either cannot or will not acknowledge as genuine. Maybe Morgellons is the point of entry for an alien force that eschews metal ships in favor of an insidious disease that has inspired a conspiracy of silence among doctors similar to the cover-up of UFOs themselves in other parts of officialdom.

If you experience the terrifying symptoms of Morgellons – the sensation of bugs crawling beneath your skin, painful wounds that open up for no apparent reason and start to expel strange, cotton-like fibers – don’t expect your family physician to help you. Not even the rich and famous, like Joni Mitchell, have been spared the stigma and frustration that comes with complaining of Morgellons symptoms.

But you can at least arm yourself with the well-researched book on the subject by the aforementioned Tim R. Swartz. Reading “The Final Nail In Your Coffin: A Pox To All Of Mankind” will keep you abreast of the latest research on the disease as well as lead you on a fascinating journey through the myriad possibilities of where it comes from. Swartz does not shy away from including even the unthinkable: Could Morgellons be a new bioweapon designed in Earthly laboratories? A military experiment gone wrong that the civilian medical community cannot even analyze as a disease, let alone cure?

Be watchful for another article about “The Final Nail In Your Coffin,” which will cover one more frightening method for mankind’s extermination – the secret ingredient for a nuclear weapon the size of a softball and cheap enough for the terrorist on a tight budget.
