UFO contactee Paul Villa produced a plethora of credible photos of UFOs/flying saucers that are just as vital today as they were when they were taken decades ago. Villa’s wonderful full color pictures of hovering alien spacecraft have never been successfully debunked even after the passage of more than 50 years. Not that the skeptics haven’t tried. Those who know a bit about the photo process have to admit these are much better, and more authentic looking, than those of Billy Meier.
Publisher Timothy Green Beckley has recently made available a book called “The Secret UFO Contacts of Paul Villa” and spared no expense with the printing costs. While many similar books offer only grainy, blurry, black and white smears called “authentic” photos, Villa’s photos here are sharp, clear and in living color. Some, Beckley boasts, have never been published before!
Beckley first became aware of Villa when the publisher received a box of postcards in the mail from UFO aficionado Gabriel Green, who was also a publisher, convention sponsor and promoter. (Both the postcard and the original photo are included in the new book.) Green had carved out a niche for himself as the chief supporter of the New Age branch of the flying saucer movement, meaning he believed the UFO occupants were a benevolent race whose goal was to rescue mankind from the doom it seemed so inevitably to be heading toward.
The postcards featured the photo of a flying saucer that Beckley described as “almost too realistic looking to be legitimate. Many of the serious-type UFOlogists took it as a hoax, but they did not have the opportunity to see the full array of pictures taken by this gentleman, whom everyone said was almost a recluse, hiding out in his trailer before the Men-In-Black – or some other sinister group – attempted to burn his living quarters to the ground.” According to Beckley, probably a hundred thousand of the Paul Villa postcards were distributed.
“For a long while,” Beckley writes, “this was the most frequently published picture of a UFO, gracing many a newspaper and periodical. Gabe was going to see that the postcard was distributed far and wide because he had a great interest in what Paul Villa had to say about his contacts with extraterrestrials from Coma Berenices.”
Along with UFO abductee and channeler Diane Tessman, Beckley visited Gabe Green at his home, where some of Villa’s photos adorned the walls. “There are some who thought that Mr. Green was overly passionate,” Beckley writes, “in putting his faith into what Villa and the other contactees had to say, so strange were the descriptions of their ongoing encounters and contacts, which included claiming to meet highly advanced beings from the other side of the cosmos and in some cases actually going for rides in their craft from the stars.”
Beckley provides even more background on Gabriel Green, who became a regular attendee and speaker at popular saucer events and organized his own group, the Amalgamated Flying Saucer Clubs of America (AFSCA). Green also taught others how they too could make psychic contacts with far-distant beings. Green ran for president in 1960, against Richard Nixon and John Kennedy. He put together a complete campaign platform, covering a range of economic and social policies based on information received from the Space People. Despite some early enthusiasm for his campaign, Green withdrew from the race in October and endorsed Kennedy.
Green died in 2001 in Yucca Valley, near Giant Rock, the original nexus of the Saucerian Movement, where he had continued his work as a medium, relaying messages from the Space People and the Ashtar Command to their true believers. Prior to Green’s passing, Beckley bought the rights to a book UFO researcher Col. Wendelle Stevens had compiled on Paul Villa, originally published as “UFO Contact from Coma Berenices.”
Wendelle Stevens was a leading UFOlogist for more than 50 years and the creator of one of the largest private UFO photo archives known. He became interested in the UFO phenomenon while he served in the Air Force after World War II and encountered mysterious radio transmissions while working on a classified project to photograph and map the Arctic wastes using new technology. In 1979, after retiring from the Air Force, he published the four-volume “UFO Contact from the Pleiades,” which detailed the alien encounters of Edouard “Billy” Meier, who also had taken impressive-looking photos of UFOs near his home in Switzerland. Stevens was the Director of Investigations for the now defunct Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO) and a founder of the International UFO Congress. He died in 2010.
Stevens became aware of Villa when Gabriel Green published some of Villa’s photos in his “UFO International” publication in October of 1965. Beckley reprints a portion of Green’s original newsletter, which Beckley called “the journalistic voice of the contactees, who spoke of friendly aliens.”
In his preface to his book, Wendelle Stevens writes, “Very little has ever been written about Apolinar (Paul) Villa and his remarkable long-term ongoing UFO contacts with alien extraterrestrial human beings and his several remarkable series of photographs of the posed alien ships. His contacts began, like most others, with sightings, then an awareness of their presence when they were here. This eventually developed into face-to-face contact and personal interaction with them, the extraterrestrials.
“When they invited him to bring his camera,” Stevens continues, “a simple Japanese 120 box version, they flew their ships slowly, hovered, and posed the craft for good pictures, which he did get in series and sequence. Handicapped by a slow shutter speed and a simple low resolution lens, he nevertheless managed to get a number of excellent color photographs.” Beckley says one of the most fascinating elements of several of the photos consists of several “ball bearing-like” smaller craft which can be seen to circle the much larger disc. “I do not understand how they could be kept aloft if the larger UFO had been tossed into the air. It’s like they defy gravity . . .”
THE MAN HIMSELF
Paul Villa was born on September 24, 1916, in Albuquerque, of NativeAmerican/Spanish descent. While he did not complete the tenth grade, he had a good working knowledge of mathematics, physics, electricity and mechanics and was particularly gifted at detecting defects in engines and generators. His wife, Eunis, was a “war bride” from Germany; the couple met when Villa was serving as a sergeant in the U.S. Army occupational forces after the war. He brought Eunis back from Europe, and they settled in Southern California.
COMING TO KNOW THE SPACEMEN
Villa said he first spoke with spacemen in 1953 when he worked for the Department of Water and Power in Los Angeles. While on the job one day in Long Beach, he had a strong urge to go down to the beach, a feeling he did not then understand. There he met a man about seven feet tall. Villa’s first impulse was to run away, but the man called him by name and told him many personal things about himself.
“He knew everything I had in my mind,” Villa said, “and he told me many things that had taken place in my life. He then told me to look out beyond the reef. I saw a metallic-looking, disc-shaped object that seemed to be floating on the water. Then the spaceman asked me if I would like to go aboard the craft and look around. I went with him.”
For Villa, the aliens were entirely human-looking, though more uniformly attractive than Earth people and definitely more refined in face and form. They took Villa on a tour of the saucer and confided in him that the whole galaxy to which Earth belongs is a grain of sand on a huge beach compared to the unfathomable number of inhabited bodies in the entire universe. They said their craft are constantly active over our planet and that they are here on a friendly mission to help Earth people.
THE PHOTOS BEGIN
The extraterrestrials spoke to Villa in his native Spanish but also spoke English fluently with him as well. They told him they had been observing the development of our “dubious civilization” from observation platforms on our Moon, Mars and Venus.
Initially, Villa’s photos were greeted with some suspicion, even within the UFO community. Coral Lorenzen, who co-founded, along with her husband, Jim, the aforementioned Aerial Phenomena Research Organization, visited Villa at his home and asked him pointblank how he had faked the photos. Villa responded, sarcastically, “Well, my dear lady, you just make yourself a model and toss it in the air and photograph it.”
Stevens later wrote that such a deception is not easily carried out. In fact, he tried doing it himself and, by the third photo, his model was ruined. It was also impossible to get the model in the correct attitude and angle simply by tossing it up in front of the camera.
The photos Villa took are breathtaking to look at and do appear to show actual flying saucers set against lovely desert scenery. There are different types of ships from photo to photo, which is consistent with UFO witness accounts since the 1940s and has led some analysts to think we are being visited by several different alien races and civilizations. That theory accounts for the many types of occupants reported, from the grays to the reptilians to the blonde, human-looking Nordics.
AN UNHAPPY CASE OF FAME
The notoriety that came with being “chosen” to take the photos did not make life easy for Villa, however. He suffered many instances of harassment, including an incident that happened when he stopped off at a local tavern on his way home from work. As Villa was sipping his beer, a complete stranger walked up to him and said, “So you’re the nut that said he is talking to spacemen?” The stranger next punched Villa in the nose, drawing blood.
Villa never forgot that moment of genuine violence. He was often forced to move his wife and household to new locations after such incidents, which included neighbors attacking his mobile home and even some very frightening visits from the dreaded Men-In-Black. People who found him in Albuquerque, where he had relocated his family from Los Angeles after the photos appeared in the “UFO International Journal,” took things from around his home for souvenirs.
The thoughtless interlopers infuriated him and the incidents necessitated another move, this time to an obscure small town in the remote desert south of Albuquerque.
Tim R. Swartz, a writer, Emmy Award-winning producer and Tim Beckley’s co-host on the podcast “Exploring the Bizarre” on the KCOR internet radio network, provides some further insight into this aspect of Villa’s story in the book “The Secret UFO Contacts of Paul Villa.” “From all accounts, it seems that Villa was very much a reluctant contactee,” Swartz writes. “His encounters are almost textbook examples of the ‘typical contactee meeting.’ In his interviews, Villa talks of friendly space people who are beautiful, almost angelic, in appearance, offering up explanations on how the universe works and what role Planet Earth plays within it.
But Villa didn’t hit the UFO conference circuit to promote his experiences or sell photos. He pretty much stayed quiet about the whole affair unless he was asked first.
“Thanks to Gabriel Green and his ‘International UFO Journal,’” Swartz continues, “Villa’s photographs became widely publicized, yet, at the time, almost nothing was known about the man who took them. Col. Wendelle Stevens, the primary author of this book, actually took the time to visit Villa at his home and listen to his story without passing immediate judgment.” Swartz writes further that Villa, for the most part, shunned publicity, refusing to talk to the press or even to UFO researchers.
“He claimed that his life had been threatened,” Swartz goes on, “and once someone even took a shot at him while he was in his pickup truck. Those who did talk with him found him credible. The late Bill Sherwood, who was an optical physicist and a senior project development engineer for the Eastman-Kodak company said that, ‘Villa never tried to use his personal experiences for monetary gain. To me, he always seemed humble and sincere; unimpressed by the attention he received from the Secretary-General of the United Nations, U Thant, who called him at his workshop to discuss his experiences with the extraterrestrials.”
Villa shared his beliefs with well-known UFO researcher and author Timothy Good, telling him that there were three distinct groups of aliens visiting Earth, including “certainly one that is good.” Villa stated that the space people had hundreds of bases within our solar system on Earth, Mars and the Moon. The group Villa belonged to worked with about 70 contactees in the U.S. and about 300 worldwide.
“Unfortunately,” Swartz writes, “there is still a lot of information about Villa’s contacts that will never be known. Like many other contact cases, we are left to ponder the strange circumstances of the reluctant contactee Paul Villa and his mysterious friends from beyond.”
Villa died of stomach cancer in 1980 at age 64 and was buried in Santa Fe. Some of his photos were never made public, including a series that was reportedly taken on another planet. Wendelle Stevens writes that he had lost touch with Villla’s widow, Eunis Villa, and appealed to readers of “The Secret Life of Paul Villa” for any information they had that would enable him to contact her and get a look at those rumored, long lost photos. We may never know everything the UFO occupants revealed to Villa, but the idea that there is further photographic evidence to be seen is certainly a tantalizing one.
“The Secret UFO Contacts of Paul Villa” also touches on the 1963 photos of miniature UFOs photographed by Christian Lynggaard in Aalborg, Denmark. The book includes two of Christian’s photos. There is also a brief account of Harold Trudel, who photographed two tiny, silvery, metallic, disc-shaped flying objects in July 1966 at Woonsocket, Rhode Island.
The book has an added bonus feature, a chapter on the Italian “Friendship Case” from 1956, illustrated with a photo from 1976 of an alleged alien over 8 foot tall who seems to dwarf the trees in the background. In the interest of disclosure, I wrote the “Friendship” chapter and another chapter that provides a basic overview of Villa’s personal history.
But the real beauty of “The Secret UFO Contacts of Paul Villa” is, of course, Villa’s photos. This new full color and expanded edition is more than worth the cover price for its faithful rendering of some of the best, most believable and historic UFO photos ever captured on film. You will turn the pages in wonder and awe as the reality of the alien presence penetrates your consciousness through the medium of Villa’s photos.
When all is said and done there is ample evidence that certain aspects of the UFO phenomenon are largely repeatable – that they happen over and over again, making it a mixed cocktail of Déjà vu. It is a situation that is so bizarre yet prevalent that it deserves serious study. Such a study is now at hand, and it’s an in-depth one that proves there are certain “coincidental” aspects of the phenomenon that cannot be overlooked.
Are UFOs just a matter of nuts-and-bolts ships from another galaxy? Travelers of the universe who accidentally stumbled on to Earth and decided to make a mysterious, secretive kind of contact with our small planet’s inhabitants? Can we sum up the flying saucers as an invasion continually poised to happen – but that never quite manifests itself in real world terms that no one can deny?
This may be the prevailing view for some people who have never ventured to investigate the UFO phenomenon more deeply than a smirking story on the evening news or a documentary on cable TV that focuses its efforts on providing scientific “proof” of the alien presence on Earth. Real believers often concede that such evidence still hasn’t been obtained, but also point to the high strangeness of witness testimony that, when taken at face value, paints a verbal picture more bizarre than any cluster of lights captured on a cell phone could possibly do.
So it is that Timothy Green Beckley, the publisher, editor and writer who heads Global Communications/Inner Light Books, has issued yet another lengthy tome on the paranormal and repeating aspects of the UFO phenomenon. This one is called “UFOs Déjà vu: Skinwalkers, Shapeshifters, Alien Portals and Vortexes to Other Dimensions.” The title comes from the famous joke by Baseball Hall-of-Fame catcher Yogi Berra, who once commented that back-to-back home runs by Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris in the 1960s were like experiencing “Déjà vu all over again!”
“In less colorful lingo,” Beckley writes, “déjà vu means that one has lived through a situation before, whether it is in reference to walking down a street you ‘know’ you have never walked down previously but are doing it again, or sighting a UFO in pretty much the same locale over and over, as though it is wedged in the same spot in space. In French, the words mean ‘seen before.’”
Meanwhile, the title’s reference to alien portals and vortexes to other dimensions also focuses on things outside the realm of nuts-and-bolts Ufology.
“There is something more decisively paranormal about UFOs,” Beckley writes, “that makes the topic much more complex and more difficult to prove. It circumvents normalcy, and so you must call in the supernatural, like it or not.”
PORTALS TO ANOTHER DIMENSION
To explain more about alien portals and vortexes, Beckley brings in his “in-house” psychic Maria D’Andrea, who sees the portals and vortexes as part of her working routine. She says that we should simplify the two words to mean “doorways.”
“Shamans and psychics use vortexes and portals all the time,” Maria writes. “It’s more or less how we get around. Going through and exiting on the other side is our method for seeing what’s going on within these other realms. Sometimes we visit portals of our own free will, other times they just open up without warning.”
Once, while walking in the mountains in Pennsylvania, Maria heard a sound she likened to a “soft wind,” and part of the landscape in front of her disappeared. Stars and planets became visible, as if she was floating in space.
“As I looked,” she writes, “I saw what seemed to be two round discs flying erratically to some destination. I ‘knew’ there were beings inside these vessels and I wanted to see more. As I walked toward the portal, I had a feeling of being stopped. It felt like I was trying to walk forward, but was only pushing into an etheric substance that felt like jello, and I wasn’t going anywhere. It was very frustrating. I automatically put up my psychic shield as a defense mechanism so that nothing could harm me. As I looked on, I noticed the ‘ships’ were changing colors as they rotated. I didn’t hear any sounds emanating from them. Nor did I see the beings inside, but I had an overwhelming feeling they were positive and meant no harm.
“I was lucky to have such a positive experience,” Maria continues. “Warning – not everyone does. As I was gazing at the setting before me and trying to gather more details about the ships and their occupants, the portal closed and I found myself back in the woods again. To this day, I wonder what sort of beings were in the craft. I’ve opened doorways before and since, but couldn’t get to the same place again. I think sometimes the universe just messes with you and they should have given me the proper coordinates. Right?”
Whether or not we have the right to be told just who we’re dealing with and where they come from, Maria’s story in an excellent example of the kind of case that “UFOs Déjà vu” is concerned with, namely UFO encounters with an undeniably paranormal element.
UFOS AND THE LIFE AFTER DEATH ASPECT
Another writer in Beckley’s stable is Diane Tessman, a longtime UFO investigator, abductee, channel and author. Diane also explains the nature of portals and vortices in her chapter.
“As a person dies,” Diane writes, “her spirit passes on through a portal which separates ‘physical life’ from ‘spirit life.’ The spirit life universe is much more exciting, diverse, peaceful and beautiful than the physical world. The portal to this world manifests as the soul leaves the physical body. Some emerging spirits perceive this portal as a brilliant light, while others simply sail toward colorful cosmic fractals, nebulas and magnificent scenes beyond description.”
There are other kinds of portals, according to Diane, through which both angels and demons travel from their own realms. These portals exist where you least expect them. In a manner similar to the aforementioned “physical life to spirit life portals,” the “angels and demons portals” do not stay in a specific spot. Portals fluctuate; they manifest as needed by an entity.
Diane says that a vortex occurs when Nature’s energies become supernatural energies and intersect with other natural or supernatural energies. This transformation of energy into something supernatural is something only Nature herself understands. Why does a ghost light appear on a mountainside, or why does a will-of-the-wisp glide down the valley? Cosmic beings, even UFO occupants, have sensors which detect where and when a vortex appears and they can make use of such a corridor.
“Usually they find themselves onboard a UFO,” Beckley writes, “and there, in the company of some sort of alien being, would be a deceased loved one, a friend, or a member of their immediate family.”
Some reacted to Beckley and Diane’s book as though the two authors were “disrespecting the dead” and reaching for the outer limits of “sensationalism.”
“That was not our intention, of course,” Beckley writes. “We were merely passing along what we thought was reliable information we had been privileged to gather from what we were convinced were reliable sources, mainly those who had undergone such overly emotional experiences, making them burst into tears.”
THE RESEARCH OF COMMUNION’S WHITLEY STRIEBER
Beckley calls on a writer named Brent Raynes, who has also written about the alien connection to the next world, perhaps the world that spiritualists have long called “the Summerland,” a paradise awaiting us when we shuffle off this mortal coil.
Brent references Anne Strieber, the late wife of bestselling “Communion” author Whitley Strieber. Anne wrote an article in which she describes how for years she and her husband had received large volumes of mail from readers who experienced a connection with the spirits of the dead along with the UFO visitors. She began to make a list of commonalities that she would come across in the hundreds of letters that came pouring in after the publication of the mega-seller “Communion.” One letter writer spelled it out as, “They have something to do what we call death.”
Brent also writes that an Alabama ghost hunter he interviewed for his “Alternative Perceptions” newsletter remarked that he would not be surprised at all if it turned out that alien beings and ghosts used the same dimensions to travel between this world and theirs.
“This merging of experiences and beliefs that in the past were strictly kept within their respective and separate categories by those of various disciplines,” Brent writes, “seems to gradually be catching on with some. Maybe change is in the air.”
INSIDE THE SKINWALKER RANCH
In his Publisher’s Note preceding a chapter on the legendary Skinwalker Ranch,located in the Uintah Basin in Utah southeast of the city of Ballad, Beckley writes, “The ranch takes its name from the ‘skinwalker’ of Navajo legend, of shape-shifting, malicious witches who have the supernatural ability to turn themselves into a variety of animals, mainly wolves and flesh-eating birds. By a broader definition, shape-shifting occurs when a being, usually a human, has the ability to change into another person, creature, gender or other entity.”
According to an exclusive interview with documentary producer Jeremy Corbell conducted by David Partridge, “Huge wolves, creatures crawling out of a hole in the air, red orbs, and large prehistoric looking birds with a monumental wingspan are just some of the phenomena witnessed at various times on the ranch.”
But along with these kinds of exotic supernatural entities, the area still draws its fair share of UFOs. Researcher and radio personality Erica Lukes was with a friend on the scene at Skinwalker Ranch.
“I noticed a light that appeared to be shining up on the mesa,” Erica says. “Then we watched as this light traveled across the underside of the mesa. It appeared to expand and looked like an illuminated mist. This mist moved toward us and then around us. The temperature dropped about ten degrees. The sound became very muffled. Then it would retreat. Above where Skinwalker Ridge is, where, according to some of the best researchers in the world, these craft appear to move in and disappear and then come out, I noticed an amber ball of light and I photographed that. And at the same time, there was an amazing lightning storm blowing through. So it was absolutely one of the most stunning and surreal experiences I’ve ever had.”
Lukes’ story serves to illustrate Beckley’s main assertion here, that supernatural and UFO activity go hand-in-hand and are not distinctly separate phenomena. Where you have shape-shifting Navajo witches, you also find the usual “lights-in-the-sky” type UFOs.
British paranormal researcher and prolific author Nick Redfern also contributes to the book, writing about shape-shifters and the many forms they can take.
“While the traditional image of the werewolf is, without a doubt,” Redfern writes, “the first thing that springs to mind when a discussion of shape-shifters takes place, the truth of the matter is that there is a veritable menagerie of such infernal things in our midst. Were-cats, were-tigers, were-hyenas and were-coyotes are near the top of the monstrous list. Then, there are the ancient beliefs that those who died violent deaths – or those who were themselves murderers – were often destined to return to our plane of existence in the forms of hideous beasts, including wild and savage apelike animals, fearsome black dogs with glowing and blazing red eyes, and mermaid-like things.
“Even the legendary monsters of Loch Ness, Scotland,” Redfern continues, “are believed – in certain monster-hunting quarters – to be paranormal beasts that have the ability to alter their appearances at will. As are legendary vampires, who, the old legends suggest, can transform into the likes of bats and wolves. Collectively, all of these ‘things’ amount to an absolute army of otherworldly creatures and half-human monsters that have plagued and tormented us since the dawning of civilization. And they show zero signs of slowing down anytime soon.
“Shape-shifters are everywhere,” Redfern adds. “They lurk in the shadows, in the deep woods, and expansive forests, in dark and dank caves, and in the murky waters of our lakes and rivers. Maybe even, after sunset, in the recesses of your very own backyard, patiently waiting to pounce.”
“UFOs, Déjà vu” is a large volume, well over 350 pages, packed with information and photos and drawing on nearly twenty contributors.
Chris O’Brien provides a chapter based on his many years of research into Colorado’s San Luis Valley, which he describes as a “paranormal Disneyland.” His chapter includes photos of morphing UFOs – as strange as you can get aerial devices changing shape in midair!
The aforementioned Brent Raynes also investigates the San Luis Valley, and brings back tales of UFOs, Bigfoot, the ubiquitous skinwalkers, demon dogs, shapeshifting witches and encounters with the devil himself. Joshua Warren, a longtime member of Beckley’s pool of writers, contributes a chapter on the Brown Mountain Lights, a ghost light phenomenon in North Carolina that has long eluded objective scientific understanding.
One prominent UFO researcher – Tom Dongo by name – has made a permanent home in Sedona, Arizona, one of those UFO/paranormal hotspots that never seems to cool down. Among the many types of creatures sighted in the Sedona area is one called “The Blue Man,” which Tom’s associate, a local ranch owner named Linda Bradshaw, was able to photograph as Tom looked on.
“Linda’s photograph shows a left-side head profile and the left shoulder of a man with blue hair,” says Tom, adding that “I believe it is the first authentic picture of an alien of interdimensional origin.”
Hispanic writer Scott Corrales informs us about a gateway to the unknown in Puerto Rico, specifically the Adjuntas region, where recurring UFO activity stretches back to the 1950s. There is even a local law enforcement officer bearing witness to the “balloon-shaped yellow lights” traveling noiselessly at high speed. They travel from one side to the other and vanish into the mountains.
While Beckley has assembled an impressive roster of writers for “UFOs Déjà vu,” he also contributes numerous chapters of his own, waxing profound on his lifetime of paranormal encounters coupled with an intense investigative curiosity about many topics outside the “nuts-and-bolts” realm of UFO research. Bring on your strangest stories – Beckley can handle them.
If you’re in the mood for some high strangeness yourself, you’ve come to the right place. “UFOs Déjà vu” surely ranks among the strangest books ever published and will take you on a journey you’ve likely never even imagined was possible.
** There are many who believe that the inspiration that drove inventor Nikola Tesla to create the AC motor, remote control, even radio, was not summoned forth out of nothing. Was Tesla sent to this planet by aliens sympathetic to humanity in order to improve the quality of life here? Where would we be without things like affordable, workable electricity?
** Tesla claimed to be hearing a faint but audible broadcast from the Planet Mars on equipment he had designed to track lightning and thunderstorms. He said it was the sound of one planet greeting another. Did those same Martians guide his later achievements as an inventor?
** Emmy Award-winning journalist Tim R. Swartz has been on the forefront of research into Tesla for decades. Swartz contributes chapters to two new books that deal with the “fringe” approach to Tesla, both as a star-seed child given as a gift to our world and as an early “contactee,” on the receiving end of an alien transmission. The two volumes complement each other nicely in their approaches to a paranormal perspective on Tesla.
** Read Tim Swartz’s description of Tesla’s “visions,” involuntary moments when a new invention would appear in three dimensions in the space just in front of him. Tesla seldom wrote down even his most complex plans, preferring to trust his inner visual sense and photographic memory. Were these visions sent to him by means of alien telepathy?
In a never-ending quest to achieve an ultimate understanding of all things Nikola Tesla, publisher Timothy Green Beckley of Global Communications/Inner Light has recently released two new volumes that take up the daunting task of understanding the celebrated genius in both supernatural and prosaic terms. One new book is entitled “Nikola Tesla: Cosmic Voyager” and the other is “Nikola Tesla: Signals from the Stars.”
The “Cosmic Voyager” tome includes a long section by Margaret Storm, originally written in 1957, that takes a decidedly New Age perspective on Tesla. For one thing, she believes Tesla’s birth in what is now Yugoslavia was the result of extraterrestrial planning.
“Historians agree that Nikola Tesla was born at midnight, between July 9 and 10, in the year 1856,” Storm writes. “Nikola himself hinted on a few occasions that this was not the date of his birth. These hints were disregarded along with hundreds of other statements made by Tesla, because in most quarters he was regarded as being a bit impractical. This was not a criticism, for his genius was so highly respected that it was generally conceded that he did not have to measure up to conventional standards. He was to be allowed his little eccentricities, his passing fancies. The space people have now stated that Nikola was born onboard their ship on a flight from Venus, and that they landed on the Earth at midnight, between July 9 and 10, 1856.”
Storm is making use of what is called in the study of mythology and religion a “birth legend,” such as in the case of Jesus being born to a virgin, the Immaculate Conception.
“When the space people say that Nikola was BORN onboard one of their ships,” Storm explains, “they do not mean it was a physical birth. Physical conception and the birthing processes known on this planet are not used elsewhere. On other planets, positive and negative light rays are used to produce a physical form which can be occupied by an evolving life stream.”
A LOVING FAMILY WITH A POSSIBLY VENUSIAN MOTHER
Djouka Tesla, the Earth mother who cared for Nikola with a rare tenderness, was a most remarkable woman and assuredly possessed advanced spiritual powers, according to Storm.
“It has been said,” Storm continues, “that she, too, was a Venusian, and, if this is true, it accounts for her very unusual abilities. She was the eldest child in a family of seven children. Her father was a minister of the Serbian Orthodox Church. She never attended school, nor did she learn even the rudiments of reading and writing at home. Yet she moved with ease in cultured circles, as did her family.
“Tesla himself never wearied of talking about his remarkable mother, and described how she had absorbed ‘by ear’ all the cultural riches of her community and her nation. Like Nikola, she apparently had the power of instant recall. Nikola said that she could easily recite, without error, long passages from the Bible; she could repeat thousands of verses of the national poetry of her country. She had an excellent grasp of philosophy and apparently a practical understanding of mechanical and technical devices. In addition, she was so skillful in handling business and financial matters that she managed all accounts for her household as well as for her husband’s church.”
Meanwhile, Tesla’s Earth father was the son of an army officer and likewise joined the army as a young man. But he was soon disillusioned, being irked by the rigors of military discipline. His true calling was in the literary field. He wrote poetry, articles on current problems and philosophical essays. From there he was led to the ministry, using his literary talent to write sermons spoken from the pulpit. He did not limit himself to the usual church topics, but covered subjects of local and national interest concerning labor, social and economic problems.
“This then was the childhood environment of the boy from Venus,” Storm writes. “It was a life filled with joy. He had an ideal home with a loving, understanding family. He lived in a magnificent countryside, close to nature. He was a boy like other little boys, up to a certain point, the point at which he became the superboy, foreshadowing the superman. And so it was that he lacked human companions, a state, not of loneliness, but of aloneness, that was to continue throughout his physical incarnation. To the end of his time in a physical body, he lived at the very center, the very core, of a magnificent solitude, listening always to the Voice of the Silence.”
THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER OF WONDROUS THINGS
A further indication of Tesla’s dual status as a star-seed child with a channel directly to the heavens is his ability to visualize his future inventions in exacting detail.
In “Nikola Tesla: Cosmic Voyager,” Tesla expert Tim Swartz writes, “Much has been made over Tesla’s amazing ability to visualize images in his mind. This talent came mostly involuntarily and often at inopportune moments. When he was younger, Tesla worried that he was suffering from some sort of madness when his visions would appear. Later he came to realize that this particular trait was a gift and the basis of all his inventions.”
Tesla’s visions were so vivid, he was sometimes confused by what was real and what was imaginary.
“Strong flashes of light often accompanied these images,” Swartz recounts. “He would wave his hand in front of his eyes to determine whether the objects were simply in his mind or outside. In 1919, Tesla wrote of these images and his efforts to find an explanation for them. He had consulted with several doctors and psychologists, but no one was able to help.”
Tesla himself wrote, “The theory I have formulated is that the images were the result of a reflex action of the brain on the retina under great excitation. They certainly were not hallucinations, for in other respects I was normal and composed.
“To give an idea of my distress,” he continued, “suppose that I had witnessed a funeral or some such nerve-wracking spectacle. Then, inevitably, in the stillness of the night, a vivid picture of the scene would thrust itself before my eyes and persist despite all my efforts to banish it. Sometimes it would even remain fixed in space though I pushed my hand through it.”
It is well known, Swartz writes, that Tesla’s conception of his AC motor came to him during one of his visions.
“One afternoon, I was enjoying a walk with my friend in the city park and reciting poetry,” Tesla recalls. “At that age, I knew entire books by heart, word for word. One of these was Goethe’s ‘Faust.’ The sun was just setting and reminded me of a glorious passage: ‘The glow retreats, done is the day of toil; It yonder hastes, new fields of life exploring; Ah, that no wing can lift me from the soil, upon its tract to follow soaring!’
“As I uttered these inspiring words, the idea came like a flash of lightning, and in an instant the truth was revealed. I drew with a stick on the sand the diagram shown six years later in my address before the American Institute of Electrical Engineers. The images were wonderfully sharp and clear and had the solidity of metal.”
Tesla would use this incredible ability throughout his amazing career. He disliked drawing his ideas on paper because that method seemed less grounded in reality than his own internal drawing board. For Tesla, drawing was utterly unrealistic and a nuisance. He did not have to make plans and jot down dimensions because of his power of instant recall. He could store any designs in his mind, to be retrieved intact years later.
But did Tesla acknowledge any of this as being supernatural?
“Despite his unusual abilities,” Swartz writes, “Tesla at first had little patience with those who believed in psychic powers or spirits. Tesla often denied that he had supernatural powers or origins from beyond the Earth. Such allegations, along with his conviction of the reality of extraterrestrials, almost certainly hurt Tesla’s reputation in later life. Tesla felt so strongly about such claims that he frequently wrote about his frustrations with people who wanted to believe that he was more than an ordinary human being.”
TIME WELL SPENT IN HIS OWN COMPANY
But while he denied being some kind of supernatural entity, there was an aloneness to Tesla’s life that was his constant companion.
Tesla writes of himself in “Nikola Tesla: Signals From The Stars”: “From childhood, I was compelled to concentrate attention upon myself. This caused me much suffering, but to my present view, it was a blessing in disguise, for it has taught me to appreciate the inestimable value of introspection in the preservation of life, as well as a means of achievement. Most persons are so absorbed in the contemplation of the outside world that they are wholly oblivious to what is passing on within themselves.”
Tesla seems to be describing a sense of being isolated from the everyday world of normal reality, a condition that was perhaps necessary to permit his prodigious output of new ideas and inventions. Maybe whoever was guiding Tesla’s creative talents found it easier to operate with Tesla as a solitary channel for what would reveal itself as evidence of unparalleled genius.
LED BY THE OCCUPANTS OF THE HEAVENS
The idea that Tesla was led to new heights of scientific discovery by extraterrestrials is one that he might himself accept.
“Many years ago,” Swartz writes, “long before the days when, to many of us, the idea of communication with other planets was strictly a Buck Rogers fantasy, Nikola Tesla was already conducting serious research experiments and inventing devices for communication with intelligent life on other planets. Furthermore, he was possibly the first man to go on record claiming that he received what he believed to be intelligent signals from outer space.”
The story behind those intelligent signals began in 1899, when Tesla had set up a laboratory in Colorado Springs, Colorado, to research, in part, how the Earth naturally produced electricity. His experimental station was built near Pike’s Peak, to take advantage of Colorado’s abundance of thunderstorms.
While these storms, with their incredible displays of lightning, rolled overhead, Tesla would take measurements using his own unique equipment designed specifically for this purpose. He found that the planet was “literally alive with electric vibrations.”
In an attempt to better understand how lightning was created and how it could be used as a source of unlimited energy, Tesla set up radio receivers to calculate the distance between lightning strikes and his laboratory.
“One night, Tesla noticed a strange repeating signal,” Swartz writes, “being picked up by his receivers. Since there were no other radio transmitters on the planet, Tesla had to conclude that he was receiving a signal from outer space. In 1900, the Red Cross asked Tesla to predict man’s greatest possible achievement in the new century. He replied by admitting he may have already achieved it by receiving a message from ‘another world.’”
Tesla went on to say that, “I have observed electrical actions which have appeared inexplicable. Faint and uncertain though they were, they have given me a deep conviction and foreknowledge that ere long all human beings on this globe, as one, will turn their eyes to the firmament above, with feelings of love and reverence, thrilled by the glad news: ‘Brethren! We have a message from another world, unknown and remote. It reads: one . . . two . . . three . . . ‘”
Tesla sent a letter to the “New York Times” in 1910, claiming the sounds could have originated from Mars.
“Most certainly, some planets are not inhabited,” Tesla wrote, “but others are, and among these must exist life under all conditions and phases of development. Personally, I base my faith on the feeble planetary electrical disturbances which I discovered in the summer of 1899, and which, according to my investigations, could not have originated from the sun, the moon or Venus. Further scientific study has satisfied me that they must have emanated from Mars. All doubt in this regard will soon be dispelled.”
The public declaration of faith in the reality of Martians brought widespread ridicule for Tesla, but it continues to be possible that he was the first man to detect radio waves from space. One is reminded of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) in our own time, where many millions have been spent in the hope of receiving radio signals from outer space. Was Tesla more than a century ahead of the game on this one?
TIME Magazine, on the occasion of Tesla’s 75th birthday in 1931, quoted Tesla as saying, “I think that nothing can be more important than interplanetary communication. It will certainly come someday and the certitude that there are other human beings in the universe, working, suffering, struggling like ourselves, will produce a magic effect on mankind, and will form the foundation of a universal brotherhood that will last as long as humanity itself.”
“Unfortunately, little else is known about how Tesla planned to communicate across the stars,” Swartz writes. “Most of his notes and journals disappeared after he died, leaving only whispered rumors of government greed and conspiracies.”
However, a man named Arthur Matthews would later claim to have been an apprentice to Tesla and that Tesla had, in 1938, built two large “magnifying transmitters” and permitted Matthews to operate one of them. Tesla gave Matthews the design for the interplanetary communication device as well as the task of whipping up public interest in conversing with the inhabitants of other planets. In the book “Nikola Tesla: Signals from the Stars,” publisher, editor and author Timothy Green Beckley even offers an easy how-to chapter on building your own interplanetary communicator. No need to spend millions on your own radio telescope, eh?
So, with these two new volumes on Tesla, one which focuses on the great genius being sent as the child of an alien race to aid in the service of mankind and the other, which reveals the happy fact that those same aliens are sending radio signals that announce the salvation of all humanity, Beckley and his Global Communications/Inner Light publishing house have doubly blessed us with gifts of fascination and hope.
Area 51 has been in the news the last few months with talk of storming the “gates,” which really do not exist as such. What is there is, for the most part, merely a “line” in the sand indicating where to stop and not go any further. Those that have gone past that point have basically “survived” and suffered a hefty fine, a night in jail and a warning not to show their faces on the Extraterrestrial Highway again. There is a rumor that one individual was shot to death because he stopped at the guard post and took some sort of canister out of his backpack, after which the private security team felt that he was a threat to life and limb and blasted him into the dust. It’s alright to go to the Little A-Le-Inn and hang out for a brew and purchase a souvenir, but don’t leave the parking lot with alcohol on your breath or the Lincoln County Sheriff will see to it personally that you get the rough treatment and end up with your pockets empty.
HAS AN ALIEN BEEN GUNNED DOWN BY OUR MILITARY?
UFOlogist, Tim – Mr. UFO — Beckley has been keeping abreast of what’s going on at the gates of Area 51. He had one of the first skywatches and workshops in 1993 with William Cooper out at the Inn and had to turn away some folks cause so many showed up. His new book, “Area 51: Warning! Keep Out!” has all the details of his so journey to the base as well as his in-depth investigation of what has gone out in Rachel, NV, as well as other military installations and bases worldwide. Nothing has escaped his attention and those of the book’s contributors. There is plenty of talk of battles with grays, dead EBEs and clashes with UFOs both in the U.S. and abroad.
“Evidence keeps mounting,” Beckley writes, “and virtual proof is at hand that UFOs have crashed and alien bodies have been retrieved by the U.S. government in a cover-up that makes Watergate look like ‘child’s play.’”
Or so says Diane Tessman, a former Mutual UFO Network State Section Director for Florida who has researched extensively the crashed saucer syndrome. Tessman has herself been abducted by the aliens and has corresponded with experts on the subject like Leonard Stringfield.
According to Tessman, one of the cases reported to Stringfield came from an Air Force sergeant named only “JM,” for the sake of his privacy. JM was also a military policeman, and in a letter to Stringfield he revealed a bizarre UFO crash incident which he witnessed at McGuire Air Force Base, New Jersey.
“The incident supposedly transpired in January of 1978,” Tessman writes. “He told Len of assisting an MP who informed him that planes from Fort Dix were pursuing a low-flying object. Suddenly the object appeared over his patrol car! His radio transmission was cut off. Then, in front of his police car, appeared a ‘thing’ with a fat head, long slender arms, grayish in color and about four feet tall. The MP fired five rounds into the alien and another round into the object hanging in the air over his car.
“The UFO then flew straight up to join eleven others,” she continues, “which were high in the nighttime sky. The MP reported that the alien had run into the woods, still moving after having five rounds from a .45 caliber gun fired into him.”
However, JM reported that he and several other military police found the body of the alien. It had climbed a high fence and died while running. The entire area was roped off and hush-hush security ensued. A battery acid, ammonia-like stench continued to permeate the area. The next day, a special team from Wright-Patterson AFB arrived and loaded a metal container onto their plane.
“All personnel were warned,” Tessman writes, “that they would be punished if they ever breathed a word of the incident. Unfortunately, no more information can be gained from JM because, as Stringfield reports, he virtually vanished into thin air shortly before he was to be discharged. All attempts to contact him have failed.”
Informants like JM above are few and far between and thus secrecy is maintained by the government and the military mostly successfully. In terms of Area 51 proper, however, there is one famous whistleblower who remains credible and has stuck to his guns for 30 years. That would be Bob Lazar, a physicist who went public with his claims about working on alien craft and started a controversy that has persisted to this day.
THE FOREMOST AREA 51 WHISTLEBLOWER
UFO researcher and author William Hamilton, III, contributes a chapter to “Area 51: Warning! Keep Out!” in which he provides some background on physicist Bob Lazar, who spoke to Las Vegas journalist George Knapp and went public with bizarre stories about the base in 1989.
“According to Lazar,” Hamilton writes, “his employer was the U.S. Navy. He and other government workers would be flown to Groom Lake and then take a bus with blacked-out windows and drive to S-4. At S-4, there was a building with a slope of about 30 degrees which had hangar doors. Inside the hangar were nine extraterrestrial flying saucers, all of different types, or, as Lazar says, ‘It’s as if they had an assortment pack.’
“He says that the power source on the saucer he worked on,” Hamilton continues, “was an anti-matter reactor which utilized the super-heavy element 115, which cannot be found naturally on Earth and is virtually impossible to synthesize. This was one of the clues that led him, in his expert opinion, to conclude that these craft were not just an advanced development of a small group of secret scientists.”
Meanwhile, along with his suspicions about the various ships truly being of extraterrestrial design, Lazar was forced to endure hardships of various kinds at the hands of humans.
“Security at S-4 was oppressive,” Hamilton writes, “and Lazar’s superiors used fear and intimidation tactics and did everything but physically hurt him. They put a gun to his head and shoved fingers into his chest and yelled into his ears. None of the scientists or technicians chit-chatted with each other when on the job. Lazar consented to polygraph testing, but one of the polygraph experts who believes Lazar is telling the truth said that some of the tests were inconclusive because of the fear driven into Lazar.”
Lazar believes it is a crime against the people and the scientific community not to tell the public that contact has been made with aliens and that we have actual physical proof from another planet, another system, another intelligence, but the proof is being closely guarded by a secret group within our government. Lazar said he was promoted to a level of clearance that is 38 levels above a Top Secret “Q” level of clearance. He was briefed and read many classified documents.
“He doesn’t like to talk about aliens at Groom Lake,” Hamilton writes, “and although he may have seen one once through a glass door, he isn’t positive about it. The documents he saw mention autopsy reports on alien bodies and do mention that at least one of the alien races originates from the fourth planet of the binary star Zeta Reticuli 2.”
A PLENTITUDE OF OTHER WHISTLEBLOWERS
When Area 51 is mocked as a very poorly kept secret, one reason for that is the numerous whistleblowers that have come forward to tell their story in spite of any threats made by the shadow government. Hamilton writes of one informer who calls himself “Yellow Fruit.”
Yellow Fruit claims to have worked as a security officer at Area 51. He later became disgruntled with the activities there.
“He made the discovery,” Hamilton writes, “that one of the security men he worked with was a humanoid alien he referred to as a ‘benevolent one.’ The other little gray aliens were called EBEs (for Extraterrestrial Biological Entities, a term that appears in the MJ-12 briefing document). Yellow Fruit revealed that a conflict was going on between the benevolent ones and the EBEs, and that now the benevolent ones had gained the upper hand at Dreamland, where he said a contingent of 37 benevolent ones were stationed and where three EBEs were held in captivity.”
A Brit named Mike Oram had many sightings in the UFO hotspot of Warminster in England, but they could not compare to his experience at Area 51. While driving alongside the base with his wife, they were stalked by a truck, which blew out one of the couple’s tires with a gunshot. From that moment on, the pair experienced two hours of missing time. That evening, after the kidnapping, they found themselves “recovering” in a trailer park. Later, under regressive hypnosis, the couple remembered they were kidnapped by strange individuals dressed as military men. Oram would subsequently come to believe that he had had a negative experience with the “paramilitary operators of the NRO Delta Force, a group trained to carry out false abductions to make people believe that they are beings of other worlds.”
Don Siedenburg is yet another whistleblower who has come forward with one of the strangest stories publisher Tim Beckley has ever heard. Siedenburg was involved in Roswell, but in a most peculiar way. The rumors have circulated for years that technology of some sort was retrieved from a crashed UFO, either from Roswell or some other crash in the late 1940s. The late Colonel Philip Corso claimed that he was given the responsibility to farm out a small number of unknown items taken from the downed disc in order to discover what they were and how they could be reproduced.
Siedenburg says that more than electronics or hardware was retrieved from this crashed UFO. He says he was part of a military experiment to test an alleged extraterrestrial “food source.”
Siedenburg told Beckley that he had enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1954 when he was eighteen years old. He spent the first three weeks of his enlistment at Edwards Air Force Base in California, where he participated in the testing of a source that supposedly tied in with the crashed UFO. “The Serum,” as it was called, was given to him in two-ounce servings, once per day for 21 days. The Serum was his only nourishment; Siedenburg experienced no hunger during that time.
The young soldier signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement that had no expiration date. However, the medical study team leader told him that if he were still alive at age 80, and still had all his mental and physical facilities, then they wanted him to tell his story. The reasoning was that, by the time Siedenburg reached 80, he would probably be the only one still alive. The study group felt that it was extremely important that the story be revealed to the public.
Siedenburg lost touch with his handlers over the years. He was told, however, that the military was trying to reproduce The Serum as it could help to do away with worldwide hunger. He has no idea whether The Serum is still being produced.
Ben Rich, called the “father of stealth technology,” is a former vice-president of the Lockheed aircraft corporation. After earning a master’s degree in thermodynamics from UCLA, he was hired by Lockheed in 1950. In 1954, he was sent to Lockheed’s secret research and development section, which was called the Skunk Works and located at Area 51. Later he was the program manager for the SR-71 Blackbird propulsion system and led the development of the F-117 stealth fighter.
Rich has stated publicly that:
“Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do.”
“The U.S. Air Force has just given us a contract to take ET back home.”
“We also know how to travel to the stars.”
“If you’ve seen it in ‘Star Trek’ or ‘Star Wars,’ we’ve been there and done that.”
“We have things in the Nevada desert that are alien to your way of thinking and far beyond anything you see on ‘Star Trek.’”
Of course, this technology could only come from UFOs. But one wonders at Rich’s apparent need to boast of what he and his Area 51 have accomplished. Has he been overcome by simple pride or hubris?
There are other well-known and courageous whistleblowers heard from in “Area 51: Warning! Keep Out!” such as Robert Dean, Ed Fouche, and Vice Admiral Thomas Wilson, all of whom have impressive military credentials that make credible their claims to being insiders regarding the UFO phenomenon. One should read the book to learn more about them since it is not possible to do them all justice in the space of this article.
ARE THERE HUMAN UFO PILOTS IN THE MIX?
Another perspective on Area 51 comes from author Preston Dennett, who contributes a chapter called “Project Redlight – Are We Also Flying the Saucers?”
Dennett calls on the research of the late William Cooper, a longtime warrior in the battle against governmental conspiracy and secrecy. In the Fall 1989 issue of Beckley’s now-defunct magazine, “UFO Universe,” Cooper writes openly of Project Redlight, the purpose of which was to test fly recovered alien craft, the same sorts of ships that Lazar discusses above. Nearly every attempt to test fly the alien ships resulted in the destruction of the craft and the death of the pilots. UFO sightings of craft accompanied by black helicopters are Project Redlight assets, Cooper claims, and at the time he was writing the project was ongoing at Area 51.
“It is interesting that Cooper mentions unmarked helicopters,” Dennett writes. “There is a very famous UFO case known as the Cash-Landrum radiation case. On December 29, 1980, Betty Cash, Vickie Landrum and Colby Landrum encountered a UFO on a lonely Texas highway. The UFO, however, was surrounded by nearly twenty helicopters of definite Earthly origins. Why would a UFO have twenty helicopters escorting it above a highway?”
Was the UFO craft itself being piloted by a human being? And totally comfortable with a human escort of Earthly helicopters?
“This case,” Dennett declares, “could very well be our best evidence for Project Redlight. The unfortunate witnesses, especially Betty Cash, suffered radiation burns. Betty’s eyes swelled shut, she suffered hair and skin loss, nausea, diarrhea, stomach cramps and headaches. She had sores on her hands that persisted even after eight months.”
Meanwhile, Dennett reports on other witnesses to UFOs that don’t seem to be piloted by beings from other planets. Dennett quotes a writer named Rick Murray, who authored an article headlined, “Is that thing a UFO, or the USAF?”
“The incident took place in the 1960s in New Jersey,” writes Dennett. “According to Murray, his father saw a typical saucer-shaped UFO while traveling on Route 70. Another man drove up in a car and witnessed the UFO with his father. As they were watching it, Air Force personnel drove up and in jeeps and tried to convince the men that what they’d seen was their imagination.
“This case would be like many other UFO cases except for two things. As Murray says, ‘The heads my father saw through the portholes were human. And along the craft’s fuselage, in bold print, were the letters USAF.”
Again, it seems that the military is possession of flying saucers and is flying them around, which is done as part of Project Redlight, the alleged Air Force study to fly UFOs acquired through crash/retrievals.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU CROSS THE LINE AT AREA 51?
One chapter that is particularly relevant to the current plan to storm Area 51 comes to us from writer Alejandro Rojas, who has written a chapter on what typically happens if you cross the line and go past the warning signs at Area 51.
In 2012, Rojas recounts, a BBC film crew filming a show called “Conspiracy Road Trip: UFOs,” made the fateful decision to cross the line, literally. A “Huffington Post” blogger and UK-based UFO researcher, Darren Perks, was part of the BBC production crew.
“We went to the Area 51 boundary,” Perks says, “and specifically to film at that location. We also made a collective decision to walk onto the restricted area and continue filming,” Perks told the “Huffington Post.” “It was a wrong thing that we did, and there will be a lot of people in the States that don’t like it. The thing is, it happened. It wasn’t staged or set up. We went there to film and overstepped the mark – we went a bit too far. “
According to Perks, the guard station at the gates appeared to be unoccupied. The group wandered past the entrance to film and ventured up to 200 yards past the gates, filming for about 30 minutes. Apparently, the lack of security guards made the BBC crew feel too comfortable. One of the team knocked on the door of the guard station.
“Eight guards wearing combat fatigues immediately came out with their assault rifles and they grabbed us,” claims Perks. “The guards forced us to the ground and we were all made to lie face down in a row on the tarmac with a gun at our back.”
Perks says they were kept in this position with their faces in the dirt for hours while the guards confiscated their equipment. Finally, the Lincoln County Sheriff sent officers to bring the group in for questioning.
Lincoln County Sheriff Kerry Lee says Perks’ account is not entirely accurate. According to Lee, his officers arrived within 30 minutes. Lee also says the guards at Area 51 were watching the BBC crew’s every move but did not approach them until they had gone too far.
Lee says the group was brought out onto a public road and questioned, issued citations, and then released. The crew was fined $600 for their incursion.
Perks says the ordeal took hours. He also claims that he asked one of the guards if he had seen any UFOs while working out here. He was told, “You know I can’t answer that question.”
Perks says he prodded further and was warned by the guard, “Son, we could make you disappear, and your body will never be found.”
Another guard allegedly told the film crew, “If any of you had kept going, we would have shot you.”
That last statement there goes a long way toward confirming the warning on the “keep out” signs there that “lethal force is authorized.” While the BBC crew got away with just a hefty fine, they were just as liable as anyone else to being mowed down in the name of secrecy, whatever their press credentials might have said.
A TREASURE TROVE OF RELEVANT INFORMATION
There is much more on offer in “Timothy Green Beckley’s Area 51: Warning! Keep Out!” Among the many other contributors are Brad and Sherry Steiger, who write about an alleged underground base in a New Mexico town called Dulce, which they have been told by sources they consider reliable functions as a kind of “Frankenstein Factory” in which aliens and humans work together to create a viable human/alien hybrid race of beings. There are legends about Dulce concealing large vats of human body parts “waiting to be blended with the special fluid that the aliens from outer space used for their food.” In terms of UFO conspiracy lore, it doesn’t get any creepier.
In addition to the authors mentioned in this article, “Area 51: Warning! Keep Out!” also includes Timothy Green Beckley himself, as well as Tim R. Swartz, Joshua P. Warren, Paul Dale Roberts, Scott Corrales, Hercules Invictus, Nigel Watson, Skylaire Alfvegren and myself. Together we provide a thorough overview of not only Area 51 but also the entire matrix of military and government secrecy in regards to UFOs and the alien presence. Beckley’s tried and true method of bringing together various authors with differing viewpoints makes for a wonderfully complete examination of the topic at hand, in plenty of time for the long awaited “experiment” in forcing the hand of the authorities guarding Area 51.
Author’s note: This article is being written a couple of weeks before the scheduled day to storm Area 51, which is September 20, 2019. Much has been written in anticipation of the event by even the mainstream media, which has been reporting on how the expected onslaught of UFO believers is being poorly received by the Nevada locals near Area 51. Nevertheless, permits have been approved, camping grounds will be available in the back of the Little A-Le-Inn and rock bands will perform.
The warning signs outside the mysterious military base say that lethal force is authorized and will be used against unlawful intruders. Meanwhile, even some diehard UFO believers are strongly cautioning potential visitors to stay away and “let sleeping dogs lie,” as the saying goes. The road to the site is barren and bringing plenty of one’s own water and gas is a necessity.
In an effort to fill the need for a book that helps the reader understand the entire picture of Area 51 and similar installations around the world, Global Communications is offering – hot off the presses – a new book called “Timothy Green Beckley’s Area 51: Warning! Keep Out!” The following is a survey of Area 51’s history and an overview of its counterparts in Britain, Australia and Russia. By way of introduction, we begin with a capsule history of Area 51 by noted writer and television news producer Tim R. Swartz, one of the many contributors to the new book.
TAKING A TRIP TO DREAMLAND
“Area 51 is the worst kept secret around,” Swartz writes. “Officially, ‘Area 51’ is the common name given to a remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base in Southern Nevada. The Russians knew about it decades ago. It has become a pop culture cliché seen in comics and movies such as ‘Independence Day.’ It even has the honor of being featured on an episode of ‘The Simpsons.’ (Lisa actually found Area 51-A on ‘Lost our Lisa.’)
“Probably the best known aspect of Area 51,” he continues, “also referred to as Groom Lake, are the rumors – and beliefs of some – that it has stored away, in some secret hangar, crashed extraterrestrial spaceships and possibly even their alien pilots (living or dead). It is hard to pinpoint exactly when these rumors started, or even who started them. In the 1980s, computer bulletin boards, hosted on Compuserve and Prodigy, were created for the discussion of UFOs and UFO reports. In these discussions were references to a ‘Secret Air Force Base’ in Nevada where the alleged crashed UFO found near Roswell was stored.”
ENTER THE COLD WAR
According to Swartz: “What we do know about Area 51 is that in the early 1950s, with the Cold War in full swing, the U.S. worried about the USSR’s technology, intentions, and ability to launch a surprise attack. Because of this, the U.S. Navy and Air Force sent low-flying aircraft on reconnaissance missions over the USSR, but they were at constant risk of being shot down. In November 1954, President Eisenhower approved the secret development of a high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft called the U-2. .
“A secret location was needed for testing of these black budget aircraft. They found it in the southern Nevada desert near a salt flat known as Groom Lake, which had once been a World War II aerial gunnery range for Army Air Corps pilots. At this time there were also a number of atmospheric nuclear test sites situated throughout the Nevada Test Site (NTS). The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) first announced the existence of this base in 1955 as Watertown.
“A booklet distributed to the press by the AEC in 1957 stated that the facility was within the Las Vegas Bombing and Gunnery Range. It was described as a small complex with ‘dormitories, equipment, buildings and a small airstrip.’”
U-2 testing began in July 1955, under the authority of the CIA.
“The tests went extremely well,” Swartz writes, “considering they were frequently interrupted, because the personnel at the base had to be evacuated whenever a nuclear test was to take place nearby. The base suffered extensive damage during some of these detonations. It’s not known what the long term effects of exposure to radiation had on personnel stationed at the base. The veil of secrecy surrounding Area 51 made sure no information would ever get out.
“While the U-2 was operating out of Area 51, civilian airline pilots would occasionally spot it at high altitudes and report seeing a UFO. Air Force officials knew the majority of these unexplained sightings were U-2 tests, but they were not allowed to reveal these details to the public. So, ‘natural phenomena’ or ‘high-altitude weather research’ became go-to explanations for these UFO sightings. This may be the beginnings of Area 51 becoming synonymous with alien space ships.
“U-2 operations were moved to other locations in the late 1950s, but other top secret military aircrafts continued tests at Area 51. Over the years, the SR-71 Blackbird, A-12 and numerous stealth aircrafts like Bird of Prey, F-117A, and TACIT BLUE have all been developed and tested in the Nevada desert.”
SMILE FOR THE CAMERA
Swartz further reports that, “Despite its remote location, the government has had difficulties keeping the base secret. For example, in 1974, astronauts taking part in a Skylab mission accidentally photographed the airfield at Groom Lake. On April 19, 1974, someone in the CIA sent the Director of Central Intelligence, William Colby, a memorandum regarding this situation.”
The memo read, in part that, “The issue arises from the fact that the recent Skylab mission inadvertently photographed” the airfield at Groom Lake. “There were specific instructions not to do this,” the memo stated, and Groom “was the only location which had such an instruction.”
In other words, the CIA considered no other spot on Earth to be as sensitive as Groom Lake, and the astronauts had just taken a picture of it.
“This photo has been going through an interagency reviewing process aimed at a decision on how it should be handled,” the unnamed CIA official wrote. “There is no agreement. DoD elements (USAF, NRO, JCS, ISA) all believe it should be withheld from public release. NASA, and to a large degree State, has taken the position that it should be released – that is, allowed to go into the Sioux National Repository and to let nature take its course.”
The CIA memo writer added that “There are some complicated precedents which, in fairness, should be reviewed before a final decision.” These included “A question of whether anything photographed in the United States can be classified if the platform is unclassified. Such complex issues in the UN concerning United States policies toward imagery from space” and “the question of whether the photograph can be withheld without leaking.”
Swartz tells us that, “The answer to the last question is obvious: the photo was withheld, and this fact never leaked. It has only come to light now, after the CIA declassified the document. In a cover note to the memorandum written by the Director of Central Intelligence, William Colby, there was speculation as to whether or not the photo needed to be suppressed because the quality wasn’t all that great. He also noted that the USSR already had photos of the base from their own spy satellites, and if the photo was released, they could just say that classified USAF work is being done there.
“Colby’s questions almost seem naïve given the debates that have raged within the U.S. intelligence community for decades over the need for secrecy. Those within the intelligence community who have asked ‘What is the harm in acknowledging the obvious?’ have almost always lost the argument. As for the Skylab photo…nothing more is known of the incident other than the fact that the photograph was never released.”
UFOS AND AREA 51
So why UFOs and Area 51?
“Physicist Bob Lazar came forward in 1989,” Swartz recounts, “to reveal that he worked on back-engineered extraterrestrial spacecraft at a secret location just south of Area 51 called S-4. Despite the criticism and outrage about his story, he has never backed down on his claims and says that everything happened just as he said. It is Lazar’s story that has fueled most of the widespread beliefs that Area 51 and UFOs go hand in hand.
Swartz makes reference to paranormal author Nick Redfern, who theorizes that Russian espionage agents embedded in Las Vegas and spying on Area 51 were getting help from unwitting UFO researchers. The U.S. Government, military and intelligence community didn’t know where those Russian agents were, or who they were. As a way to try and uncover the identity of the Russian agents, a disinformation campaign using Area 51 may have been created.
Bob Lazar could well have been a patsy, a decoy to spread tales of acquired UFOs, dead aliens, and cosmic conspiracies. Lazar may have worked out of S-4, and he also may have fully believed those supposedly top secret briefing papers that told tales of ancient encounters between the human race and aliens, and genetic alterations to the human species made by advanced ETs. In that sense, Lazar was perhaps a completely unwitting figure in this espionage mind-game.
Lazar admitted to journalist George Knapp that while he was at S-4, the staff “play so many mind games there.” Lazar also admitted that certain memories from his time spent at Area 51 were suspiciously hazy. This was something which led Lazar to believe that his mind had been tampered with – possibly via chemicals, hypnosis, and MK-Ultra-type “mind-control” technologies.
AREA 51-WARNING KEEP OUT! WITH JOSHUA P. WARREN
Everyone wants to know “what the hell goes on” behind that line in the sand and the surrounding fencing and the ominous signs that tell you TO KEEP OUT? Famous paranormal researcher Joshua P. Warren recently had a “time warp” experience off the Extraterrestrial Highway.
Warren has traveled the world investigating mysterious phenomena and made the cover of a science journal in 2004, for lab experiments regarding energy fields in nature related to UFOs and the enigmatic Brown Mountain Lights. In the summer of 2018, he made international news for a discovering a “time anomaly” south of Las Vegas.
To see his mind-blowing photos and videos visit http://www.JoshuaPWarren.com — He owns the Haunted Asheville Ghost Tours and the Asheville Mystery Museum in North Carolina, plus the new “Creepy Vegas Ghost and UFO Show” in Las Vegas, Nevada. The title “AREA 51 — WARNING KEEP OUT” is derived from the new book title packaged by Timothy G Beckley co host of Exploring the Bizarre and Mr UFOs Secret Files on YouTube.
THE BRITISH ANSWER TO AREA 51
Nigel Watson is another in Beckley’s stable of writers who contributes to “Area 51: Warning! Keep Out!” As you may gather from his name, Watson hails from the UK.
“Some Ufologists in the UK suspect,” Watson writes, “that the government conducts UFO research at a number of secret locations scattered throughout the country. The most attention has been focused on RAF Rudloe Manor, Wiltshire, which has a vast underground tunnel system and chambers. These have been used for storing ammunition, aircraft construction and as operations rooms during WWII. After the war, it has been used for various functions, including being a communications and operational hub for the UK’s military communications satellite system. This link with outer space and the high security around the base no doubt cemented its link with UFOs and is the reason why it has the reputation as Britain’s equivalent to Area 51.
“Numerous Ufologists have visited the site or have even tried to get inside it to discover what alien evidence is hiding there. The fascination with this location is highlighted in a report by Daniele Mandelli, titled simply ‘RAF Rudloe Manor.’ She provides a thorough history of the place and tells how:
“On 15th May 1997, Graham Wilson (Society for Paranormal UFO Research, SPUR, Head Office), Roger Mallett (SPUR Wiltshire Office) and myself, (Daniele Mandelli (SPUR London Office) made the journey to Rudloe Manor to see the facilities for ourselves. I had already been once before, but had only driven past a few times without stopping to have a good look round. This time would be different, I’d expected trouble and I was not disappointed! We had come well prepared, with binoculars, cameras, and an ordnance survey map. I’d also studied reports on Rudloe Manor in Matthew Williams’ ‘Truth Seekers Review,’ and had spoken with him about the trip on the phone, so I was pretty confident of my knowledge on the base, what to look for and what could be expected.”
Their visit resulted in them being told to go away by the base security guards and did not amount to much. Matthew Williams’ report in “Truth Seekers Review,” “Secrecy Shakedown, Part Two,” about his visit to the site on 25 December, 1994, with Paul Damon, is far more dramatic. A white security van blocked their vehicle and the driver questioned them. When they said they were Ufologists, he said he would go to check their credentials and warned that if they tried driving off they would be taken out of circulation. When their credentials were accepted, they were told not to take any photographs and when they left they were followed by a police car for several miles. (This should strike the present reader as being nearly identical to what happens when civilians stray too far at Area 51!)
The following year, Matthew made another trip to the area, where his activities were followed by what he regarded as MI5 operatives and he was questioned by Ministry of Defense (MoD) police, who did not like him asking about the underground base. As with other such enterprises, nothing much was discovered except that the authorities were spooked by people trying to gain access to high security sites. Ufologists seem to think this confirms that they are keeping alien/UFO evidence under wraps from public gaze but it is more to do with protecting down-to-earth national military secrets and protecting them from enemies of the state.
Nick Pope, who formerly ran the UFO desk for the British government, did confess that there are facilities similar to Area 51in the UK:
“Is there a British Area 51? Yes and no. Exotic – but decidedly terrestrial – aviation technology has been designed and tested at RAE Farnborough, the BAE Systems site at Warton, and a handful of other locations. But geography is against us Brits. The comparatively small size of the UK means that there simply isn’t space to do what the Americans do. We don’t have deserted areas of hundreds of square miles where we can test fly our shiny new toys in private.”
PINE GAP: AUSTRALIA’S AREA 51
The tentacles of the US intelligence community reach into Australia, where they are firmly clutching a top secret base Down Under. Known as Pine Gap, the facility is located in the Australian Outback, and is one of a number of bases located worldwide within the United Kingdom/USA network.
According to a website called “Cosmic Conspiracies,” which bills itself as Europe’s Biggest and Most Popular UFO/Paranormal Website: “Pine Gap is very remote and seems to have a multitude of functions attached to it. It has been linked to the UFO phenomenon by a number of researchers, and appears to have been the source of the ‘beam’ that appeared on the famous STS 48 footage, causing the anomalous objects, caught on the Space Shuttle’s video camera, to veer off in a multitude of directions. This has caused some researchers to speculate that Pine Gap is home to ground-based ‘Star Wars’ weaponry, capable of a first-strike against UFOs or foreign satellites in low Earth orbit.”
The website then notes that Timothy Good, a respected author on the subject of UFOs and the attendant government cover-up, has written about Pine Gap on several occasions.
“Located twelve miles from Alice Springs in Australia’s Northern Territory,” Good writes, “Pine Gap is a highly secret communications base run by the National Security Agency. Ostensibly a ‘Joint Defence Space Research Facility,’ sponsored by both the American and Australian defence departments, Pine Gap serves principally as a downlink for geosynchronous SIGINT (signals intelligence) satellites.
“It was established by the Central Intelligence Agency in 1966,” Good continues, “and is run jointly by the CIA and the NSA. According to one American observer, ‘The Australians have accorded the Pine Gap facility remarkable hospitality. People and cargo routinely fly in and out, entering and exiting without the burden of customs or immigration checks. The place enjoys almost extra-territorial status.’”
The website posting goes on to say, “It is clear that the Americans control this massive facility on foreign soil. This would not be surprising, given the historic arrangement undertaken by the signatories of the UK-USA agreement. Australia appears to be a junior partner of a signals intelligence-gathering operation that is dominated by America and Britain. The odd thing about Pine Gap is its placement. Where the British spy base GCHQ is located on the outskirts of the English town of Cheltenham (and is currently subject to a high profile, 600 million pounds redevelopment), Pine Gap’s remoteness is almost akin to Area 51 in Nevada.
“It’s little wonder, then, that rumors abound about UFO research and development at this facility. Its low profile might very well be due to the sensitivity of American operations being carried out on Australian soil. It is well known, for instance, that GCHQ and Menwith Hill in England have a strong American presence, but this is acceptable here in Britain because of the ‘special relationship’ between our two countries, especially with respect to sharing intelligence information.
“Would the Australian public at large be so sympathetic to an overt American presence in the Northern Territories? It seems unlikely. Even so, there may be some truth to the rumors of UFOs and space weaponry at Pine Gap, the evidence for which continues to grow.”
UNDERGROUND BASE AT PINE GAP
A scientist among Australia’s elite in a key position revealed that there are at least ten top-secret American facilities in Australia with the so-called “Joint Defence Space Research Facility” at Pine Gap being the most important.
The Pine Gap base was built by American workers flown in for that purpose on a shift basis. The base became operational after two years.
“Large underground facilities are rumored to extend some twelve miles below the base,” the report continues. “Long tunnels are laid out in a pattern similar to the spokes of a wheel, and extend several miles from the center of the base. In a deep, shielded underground chamber, a secret nuclear reactor similar in size to those used to power submarines was installed to drive large AC and DC generators. Reportedly, extending some 20,000 feet below the base is a borehole containing an ultra-low frequency antenna that is apparently used for secret experiments supposedly related to Nikola Tesla’s resonance theories as well as low-frequency communications throughout the world.
“Pine Gap is a multi-billion dollar operation of great importance to the American government,” the report says.
UFO SIGHTINGS ARE A PART OF THE PICTURE
In the aftermath of the construction of the secret underground facility at Pine Gap, the number of UFO sightings in the area has increased to epic proportions. One such incident, in 1989, involved three hunters who were on an all-night shooting trip in the hills near Pine Gap.
“At around 4:30 AM,” the anonymous source narrates, “they observed a large camouflaged door open on the side of a low hill inside the security compound and a metallic, circular disc appear from the gaping black hole. The disc tipped on its edge and disappeared vertically at tremendous speed. The door then slowly shut, and everything returned to normal. The camouflage was so good that from their vantage point they were unable to observe anything unusual about the area after the door closed.”
Another incident with a camouflaged door was also recorded.
“Another camouflaged door case occurred when two members of the Northern Territory Police,” the report said, “who were taking part in a search for a missing Alice Springs child, watched as three ‘bathtub-shaped’ objects flew slowly over the base and then one by one disappeared into an oblong black hole in a hillside. This also occurred during the early hours of the morning. As the two police officers had arranged to meet other members of the search party, they left without seeing the door close.”
The report also describes other UFO sightings at the Pine Gap underground base, all of which point to a conspiracy between secret military forces and some of the many alien races who are said to be visiting the Earth and carrying out their own agenda, an agenda our governments may be helpless to do anything about.
“Though its communications functions are important,” the report says, “its research and development sections situated below the surface are considered vital to the future of the planet. Here extraterrestrials conduct their work in partial cooperation with human scientists. They live in special conditions in virtual isolation, and come and go as they please.”
UFO ATTACK ON RUSSIA’S KAPUSTIN YAR
In the 1940s and 1950s, as the flying saucer phenomenon began to make its presence felt in the skies over America, the communist enemies of the U.S. were also receiving their fair share of UFO events. The Soviets were not exempt from increasing contact with apparent aliens and were also subject to more and more reports of spacecraft entering the airspace over Russia.
PAUL STONEHILL DELIVERS SOME HARD FACTS
A British website called “The Daily Star Online” published an interview with Soviet-born UFO researcher and author Paul Stonehill in which he said, “The Soviets were shocked so many UFOs could penetrate their borders and basically just do what they wanted without any control from the Kremlin. There were many more cases of direct encounters than in the United States, and anything which was flying over the Soviet Union was very interested in secret military installations.”
In fact, according to Stonehill, throughout the Cold War and the space race Soviet forces frequently clashed with UFOs.
“The Kremlin was paranoid,” he said, “but they could not do anything about it. They tried on several occasions where orders were given out from on high to shoot down UFOs, or local commanders would take it upon themselves. However, it always ended badly for them.”
In his research, Stonehill uncovered “a culture of total secrecy over the phenomenon in the Soviet Union,” says The Daily Star Online. “Kremlin bigwigs would pass off any public reports of the phenomenon as ‘a hoax perpetrated by the Western powers.’”
A secret research program called SETKA was established in 1977 after the Petrozavodsk incident in which 48 UFOs appeared in the atmosphere across the Soviet Union. The incident climaxed with a huge glowing object appearing overhead – seemingly beaming shafts of light towards the Earth. The goal of the SETKA program was to work out what the Petrozavodsk ships and other similar UFOs were, even as higher Soviet authorities acknowledged that the craft could not be of Earth-bound origin.
While the SETKA archives were shared among the top military minds and scientists, much of what was learned remains highly classified. Forms were distributed among soldiers, sailors and airmen to enable them to file fully detailed reports of their encounters.
“It was prolific enough,” Stonehill said, “to really make you wonder how much the Soviets knew.”
AN UNDERGROUND BASE, RUSSIAN STYLE
Among the top secret Russian facilities that Stonehill alludes to in the interview is a location called Kapustin Yar, said to be the most sensitive air base in the country, even exceeding America’s Area 51 for the levels of secrecy that enshroud it. The following information is provided by a site called “Cool Interesting Stuff,” in a section entitled “ZHITKUR Underground Base, Russia’s Area 51.”
Kapustin Yar was created as the site for the development of the Soviet Union’s space program after the end of World War II. It lies over 500 miles south of Moscow and about 60 miles east of Volgograd, the former Stalingrad. It was here that captured V2 rockets and German scientists that created them were set to work with the task of getting into space before the Americans. They were also tasked with designing and testing new aircraft, missiles and other weapons systems.
In 1948, less than a year after the famed Roswell Incident, the base’s radar operators picked up an unidentified object. Simultaneously, a fighter pilot flying near the base saw a silver, cigar-shaped object. After reporting that his eyes were blinded by rays from the UFO, the pilot was ordered to engage with it. There followed a three-minute dogfight, after which a missile brought down the object. Meanwhile, the UFO fired some sort of energy weapon at the plane and both craft crashed to the ground.
William J. Birnes, author, publisher and television personality, speculates that the alien craft fired a particle beam weapon at the Soviet fighter, but a “lucky shot” with the missile disrupted the UFO’s antigravity field, causing it to fall from the sky. Soviet recovery teams hurriedly swept up the debris and transported it to the underground facility at Kapustin Yar. Birnes claimed that MiG pilots were ordered to take any measures necessary to bring down alien ships because Moscow was desperate to gain any advantage over the U.S., whom they believed were making their own leaps and strides by reverse-engineering recovered flying saucers.
THE AMERICANS GET A LITTLE WORRIED
When the American U2 spy planes managed to photograph the complex at Kapustin Yar, there were already four ballistic missile launch sites, fourteen launch pads, a highly-sophisticated radar tracking facility, three long runways and numerous unidentified areas. There were also strange, geometric patterns on the ground. Many UFO researchers believe that these designs are intended to attract UFOs and are patterned after ancient monuments and cereal glyphs.
What the reconnaissance craft could not unveil was the underground Zhitkur facility, but Russian Ufologist Anton Anfalov has provided the following description based on a guided tour he claimed to have taken.
“A quarter of a mile beneath the surface, we were led down dark, dank corridors and tunnels, with numerous chambers containing various types of extraterrestrial craft in various stages of disassembly. There were areas where autopsies of aliens would take place, and other sections where perhaps engines were being reconstructed. Finally, there are huge hangars containing not aircraft but large, cigar-shaped or cylindrical-shaped objects.”
It is said that the advances at Kapustin Yar enabled the Soviets to leap ahead of America in the space race. In 1957, they successfully placed the Sputnik satellite into orbit, followed a month later by sending a dog called Laika to be the first animal in space. In 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first man to orbit the Earth. The first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova, made the journey in 1963. The first man to “walk” in space was Alexei Leonov in 1965. The first rendezvous and docking in space was carried out by Russian cosmonauts as well. Apart from the Apollo moon shots, the Soviet Union was winning the space race until the space shuttle was first launched in 1981.
The new freedoms in Russian made it possible for members of the media to obtain “top secret” footage of supposed UFOs at Kapustin Yar. On June 3, 1960, two alien craft allegedly crashed at Kapustin Yar, creating an expanding fireball that caused explosions in the area for more than an hour. People are seen running from the flames, smoke pouring off of their clothing. One man drops to the ground and doesn’t move. One of the UFOs was said to have destroyed three rockets on their launch pads, while the other took out a fuel depot. After the fires had been extinguished, the remains of the craft were sent to Zhitkur.
But it remains impossible, based on the footage, to prove the two UFOs caused the conflagration, since all the film shows is a big fire. But the story endures, and Stanton Friedman has said that he heard those same rumors about UFOs destroying Soviet rockets in an act of retaliation.
THE STATUS QUO OF UFO SECRECY CONTINUES
The research is still ongoing at Kapustin Yar, with UFO wreckage being brought to Zhitkur quite regularly, such as a craft said to have crashed in Poland in 1997.
The Soviet Union obviously had a great deal of interest in the subject and seemed prepared to respond with extreme hostility to unidentified craft in their airspace. Was Moscow’s leap into space guided by reverse-engineering alien craft? The evidence would suggest not. Soviet rockets were powered pretty much the same way as the American ones – and that wouldn’t be by antigravity engines from a crashed saucer.
Still, one is forced to wonder what secrets might exist in all these underground facilities, not just in Russia, but all over the world. One must also marvel at the proliferation of facilities like Area 51 in other countries besides the U.S. The creation of these numerous installations as a response to the UFO presence is similar across the board and around the world. Will these hidden monuments to UFOs and government secrecy someday yield up the truth we believers are still seeking?

Hercules is a major contributor to a new book from Global Communications called “Ashtar’s The Space Brothers Speak: Transmissions From The Solar Council,” in which benevolent aliens explain their love for their “Chosen Ones” from among humanity and their promise to remove their own before the calamities of the apocalypse wipe out mankind completely. People seeking hope and deliverance from the Space Brothers should consider the book a “must-read.”
For Hercules, belief in

paranormal as filtered through a heartfelt belief in the gods of Olympus.
WITH THE GODS
“The gods of Olympus,”
Hercules affirmed, “are my ancestral deities and my affinity with them has been
a constant throughout my life. Olympus provides me with a meaningful context
for my life experiences and a transcendental purpose that resonates powerfully,
thrills me and excites me.”
Olympians have always been active in our world, he says, and are still
interacting with us today.
can be contacted in a variety of ways and will sometimes initiate contact in

flesh and have spoken to them through their chosen vehicles or oracles. They
also communicate through divination, visions, dreams, synchronicities and symbolism.”
of which, Hercules cautions, means that he worships the gods of Olympus.
some moderns worship the Olympians,” he said, “I personally do not. I honor
them and endeavor to demonstrate that they are real and care about humanity
through my actions in their name. The Olympians have never requested worship
from me, nor do I encourage it for others.”

and clad in the skin of a lion, makes his way towards the abandoned temple of

enters this figure and henceforth I see through his eyes. I know that I am now
Hercules, son of Zeus and progenitor of my line.
“Entering the fallen structure, I move through it unerringly until I reach a rectangular stone table, a long-neglected altar to the Olympians. Upon the altar is an antique horn, ‘from a heavenly bull,’ I tell myself. I then realize that I have been here many times before and I know exactly what I must do. The horn is of monstrous size and etched with arcane glyphs. Some of the etchings are inlaid with silver. I put down the club, cautiously lift the artifact to my lips, then blow into the smaller end with all my strength.
“The bellowing call echoes through the firmaments. With the Horn of Summoning still in hand, I exit the temple and peer purposely into the murky skies, near where I myself once hovered. I can detect faint presences, spirits that have answered my summons who will help me in carrying out my Olympian Mission. Some take of form, while others remain formless. But this I know: all who have responded will assist me in some unique and important way.”
And with that realization, the vision begins to fade. Hercules is blessed with a brief glimpse of the ruins restored to their former glory. The sky is blue and clear, and there are mythic beings engaged in joyous activity, Hercules himself among them.
“I realize that this is Mount Olympus,” he said, “my eternal point of origin and return, my Heaven and my soul’s true home. As to my name, there is a term Greek, ‘En Onomati Theou, which roughly means ‘In the Name of God.’ I dedicate myself completely to this particular Olympian, in all his guises, and I identify him as my Operant Archetype, Divine Pattern and Highest Self. Every action I undertake is thus a prayer and offering in his name.”
Hercules further explained that his given name does not translate directly into English, but means something like “Dedicated to the Queen of Heaven.” That queen’s name in ancient times was Hera, and Hercules literally means “Dedicated to Hera” or “the Glory of Hera.”
“Though I have been called by many names throughout my life,” he said, “Hercules was always my default name and is now my legal name. I grew up during the Sword and Sandal era and loved the Hercules movies and cartoon. I’ve dressed up as the cinematic Hercules throughout my life and continue to do so, even now. I could never imagine, nor have I ever wanted, to be anything other than Hercules.”
THE OLYMPIANS STILL SPEAK TO US
The Olympians still speak to us, as they always have.
“It has been my experience that the Olympians, who have assumed many guises in many cultures,” Hercules said, “will communicate with you through the masks that you’re most comfortable with. For many years, I played hide and seek with the gods as I explored the spirituality of different cultures through study and immersion. I would eventually find the same familiar faces behind the diverse cultural disguises.
“I believe that the Olympians spoke to the early contactees,” he went on, “and speak with folks still as the denizens of other planets in our solar system and beyond it. And they are telling the truth. Astro-Mythology has been a viable vehicle of communication since the days of Babylon.”
Hercules made reference to a book published by Timothy Green Beckley called “Space Gods Speak,” which is a curious and underappreciated work that is nevertheless greatly valued by those who recognize what it is and can figure out how to use it.
The late female contactee “Tuella” was an important part of “Space Gods Speak.” She established the Ashtar Command, a group of devotees dedicated to understanding the cosmic message delivered by the Space Brothers and to preparing for the eventual apocalyptic transition to a new and better world – the same paradise that Hercules called Mount Olympus when he saw it in his vision.
“I never knew Tuella personally,” Hercules said, “but I had a close friend who was part of Tuella’s Ashtar Command group for many years and frequently interacted with her. As Tuella was falsely rumored to have channeled ‘Space Gods Speak,’ and later Tim Beckley identified the tome as ‘An Ashtar Command Book,’ I wished to learn more. So I reached out, but Tuella had passed and my friend’s spiritual journey had long since take her elsewhere. Though I’ve interacted with more than a handful of Ashtar Command groups since the 1990s, nothing ever clicked.
“I have been a huge fan of Tim Beckley and his band of paranormal researchers for a big chunk of my life. I crossed paths with Tim back in the days when John Keel was hosting the Fortean Society in New York City. I reconnected with Tim when he was making low-budget horror movies. I sporadically stayed in touch during the intervening years. I am greatly honored to be in his company as a fellow adventurer and chronicler. This is a dream come true for me, and I am grateful for the opportunity to share the details of my journey.”
WHAT IT ALL MEANS
According to Hercules, it can be summed up this way:
“My current understanding is that the Olympians have guided many cultures and are known by many names. They care for their people, shape their destinies, and guide their evolution. Some of us are Vehicles or Vessels – embodied reflections of Olympus’ Light, the Dream Selves of the Gods or their projections into this world.
“We have chosen to drink from the Waters of Forgetfulness, and enter the Dream of Mortality in order to assist in the Great Awakening on Gaia. Our purpose is to transcend and unravel the conditioning of our culture and awaken to our true Olympian nature, assuming our rightful place as co-creators of Elysium. Awake or asleep, we serve the purposes of Olympus.
“I am personally tasked with locating and liberating incarnate Olympians ensnared by the Dream of Mortality and reminding them of their Olympian mission. Mindful that archetypal Olympian patterns have been programmed into the human psyche, I believe in assisting all people on Gaia with actualizing their maximal potential. My efforts, whether couched in the language of myth or not, support all of humanity’s efforts to transcend this world and venture forth into the great beyond, be those efforts metaphysical, mechanical or even imaginal.
“All of my Labors in this lifetime celebrate the Hero’s Journey in myth, legend, spirituality, popular culture and in daily life. I firmly believe that the human spirit is essentially heroic and is always seeking ways to express its innate nobility and greatness. And that a life, fully lived, dedicated to actualizing the Highest we can conceive, is the noblest expression of human existence.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Hercules Invictus is a Lemnian Greek, a proud descendant of Argonauts and Amazons. He is openly Olympian in his spirituality and worldview, dedicated to living the Mythic Life and has been exploring the fringes of our reality throughout his entire earthly sojourn. For over four decades he has been sharing his Olympian Odyssey with others.
Having relocated the heart of his Temenos to Northeastern New Jersey and the Greater New York Metropolitan Area, he is now establishing his unique niche locally and contributing to his community’s overall quality of life. Hercules is also recruiting Argonauts to help him usher in a new Age of Heroes.
Hercules currently hosts The Elysium Project, Pride of Olympus and Voice of Olympus e-radio shows on the Spiritual Unity Radio Network. He writes for The Magic Happens, Paranormal Magazine and Paranoia Magazine, has published two e-books on Kindle, Olympian Ice and The Antediluvial Scrolls, and has been contributing regularly to Timothy Beckley’s anthologies.
Hercules founded or co-founded Mount Olympus LLP, Olympian Heroic Path, Olympian Shamanic Path, Cosmic Olympianism, Mythic Atlantis, Living Theurgy, the Order of the Golden Fleece, the Regional Folklore Society of Northeastern PA and the Center for the Study of Living Myth in New Jersey. He also spearheaded many of the real-world Age of Heroes initiatives and the fictive Mythic Adventure tales.

According to Beckley: “One place you should
really stay as far away from as possible is Arizona’s Superstition Mountains.
True, there are all sorts of stories which maintain that vast tunnels
containing millions of dollars in hidden treasure, left by the Spanish and
protected by the Indians, are available for the ‘lucky’ treasure hunter, but so
far there have been so many strange deaths – murders, actually – and
disappearances in the Superstition Mountain range that you’re better off alive
and poor, rather than dead and potentially rich. Here is a rather hair-raising
rundown of some of the weird events which have taken place in the Superstitions
over the course of many years. Some of the base activity is above ground –
other activity goes on below the surface. How deep? We really can’t say for
“There is a dark element, indeed, about this
area. Mind-controlling aspects of the paranormal are evident. We know from past
research that the Ultra-terrestrials are capable of a mental hold on us if they
are so determined.
“A few years back,” Beckley continues, “I was on
the History Channel’s ‘UFO Hunters’ show, hosted by Bill Birnes. One of the
researchers I traveled with was reptilian ‘mastermind’ John Rhodes, who has
been chasing after serpent-like inner earth beings who have massive
headquarters underground throughout the Southwest. He told me that the
Superstition Mountains in particular concerned him because of all the negative
UFO related events in the area.
“I requested a description of the type of beings
we should be on the lookout for and Rhodes provided me with this list of

valleys around the Superstition Mountains in Arizona are popular with hikers,”
Lowth writes. “They are also popular, if you believe the reports, with reptilian humanoid creatures that like to
abduct people and take them into their base deep within the mountains. One
particular account, that of a woman known in the report only as ‘Angie,’ is
particularly bizarre and harrowing. While enjoying a walk around the valleys,
something she did regularly, Angie was suddenly confronted by a person in a
strange mask trying to scare her. It was only when she realized the mask was
actually a real face, and the person was some kind of strange reptile-like
creature, that the fright turned to absolute terror, and she blacked out.
next thing she realized, she was sitting behind the wheel of her car, driving
it toward her home, with no memory as to what happened. She would spend the
next several days locked away in her apartment, scared and confused.
was only when she sought help through hypnotic regression that the encounter come back to her. She had come to
in a strange cavern inside the mountain. She was surrounded by several of the
reptilian creatures. She was on a table in the middle of the room, naked and
tied down. As one of the beastly beings approached her, she blacked out again.
Although the regression did not reveal it, Angie believed she was raped by the
creature before being brought back to her car.”
AN UNDERGROUND BASE CONCEALING THE POWER TO CONTROL MINDS?
Those who have dared brave the shadows of the
Superstition Mountains say that there is something that puts evil in the minds
of people who go into the mountains in search of the Lost Dutchman Mines.
Probably the richest treasure yet to be found by
man is located somewhere within the bowels of the Earth in these mysterious
mountains. In searching for this treasure, many people have been killed; many
others have died of mysterious causes; while still others have met death at the
hands of fellow prospectors who crave one of the Earth’s greatest treasures –
Indeed just what is it that makes men go stark
raving mad upon the mountains that make up the great Superstition Range? Is it
the bloodthirsty lust for this precious metal or something far more sinister
and perhaps supernatural?
Benjamin M. Ferrira of Honolulu, Hawaii, told
staff reporter Jack Karie of the Arizona
Republic, while serving a sentence in jail for the killing of his
gold-seeking partner on April 19, 1959 that:
“There is something that happens to the minds
of people going into that mountain to look for gold. People just get started
hating each other – first thing you know they’re at each other’s throats.
“It didn’t make sense! There’s something there
on that mountain that makes men foolish. I know from experience – from a very
sad experience – that mountain does things to the minds of men. At least I
think I went completely nuts – one time I thought those canyon walls were
moving in on me.”
Some months later, in November, Laven Rowlee of
Phoenix was shot to death by Ralph Thomas after a life and death struggle that
took place just southeast of the famous Weaver’s Needle, named for its
discoverer Pauline Weaver. Mrs. Thomas asserted, according to a special report
in the Arizona Republic, that Rowlee first approached the couple “jabbering
something about us trying to kill him – he said my husband was an FBI agent. I
really didn’t understand what he was talking about. It sounded like a lot of
After Rowlee attacked the couple, they somehow
managed to grab his gun and overpower him. As the two proceeded to march Rowlee
to a nearby prospector’s camp, he screamed, “I’ve got another one.” Thinking
Rowlee meant a gun, Thomas fired and knocked Rowlee down with a shot from his
own hand weapon.
Rowlee died a few hours later.
“The stories coming out of this area,” Beckley
writes, “from those who have seen the vast mountain range and know its
innermost secrets, often reveal strange circumstances which refuse to be put to
rest. Many of them could well be the product of overworked imaginations caused
by the hot desert sun and the fearful winds that howl through the mountain
passes like the sound of those from another world beckoning to those that dare
set foot on its sacred ground.”
THEY LIVE AMONG US, FOR GOOD OR EVIL
The frightening brushes with something wicked in the Superstition Mountains can be contrasted with a famous case from the 1950s, often called “The Friendship” case, that began in Italy and remains unsolved to the present day.
The case features human-looking aliens and is
touted as the incredible story of mass contact between humans and aliens.
Normally, people thought the contactees were a small group. But in 1956, there
was a contact case involving hundreds of people. Several of them came forward
and told their story to the late Italian researcher and author Stefano Breccia.
The eyewitnesses told Breccia that the
beings spoke perfect Italian. The beings explained that the Earth had been
created for a positive purpose and that man was turning everything into evil.
The level of human morality is considerably lower than that of the aliens, who
had come to ensure that the situation with mortal man didn’t get completely out
of control. The beings had not come to conquer but instead emphasized that all
things required love and respect and that everything should be done in
accordance with those principles. The ETs were familiar with Earth’s history
and its differing religions.
They had already been on Earth for many
years, they told Breccia, living at secret bases in various places on the
planet. They preferred not to reveal themselves publicly because people weren’t
ready for open contact. Breccia himself met many of the aliens, some of them
very tall, including one alien who has 15 feet tall and was photographed
towering over some trees in the background. The aliens were given the name
“W-56s,” because the year they revealed themselves to their communal followers
was 1956. They sometimes communicated telepathically and at other times through
crystal radio sets. The W-56s are a confederation of different people coming
from throughout the known universe. Earth holds a mystical appeal to them since
it is one of a tiny number of planets on which conscious life exists.
Having established a base in Pascara,
Italy, the W-56s asked for help from the humans, requesting industrial
quantities of fruit and vegetables of all kinds. After taking delivery of a
truckload of vegetables, the truck driver was lured away by human beings to
have coffee, at which point the aliens teleported the goods off the truck. The
driver was surprised to return and find the truck was already empty.
There were believed to be similar
human/alien communal bases in Germany, Chile and Russia in the 1950s. Jealousy
and competition soon erupted, and the beings admonished the humans to “stay
The W-56s also revealed the existence of
an enormous undersea base in the depths of the Adriatic, almost in contact with
the continental shelf. Many smaller bases are located closer to the surface.
Meanwhile, topside, according to Breccia, “Our friends are living inside small
bases or plainly within our environment. As far as I know, all of them are
humanlike, with only minor differences, height among them.”
There are bases near Pascara on the
Adriatic Coast, which are difficult for Breccia to describe because of
technology we don’t understand. But there are no fixed entries into them. When
necessary, a passageway is opened, then closed, and everything goes back to the
“status quo.” One large base had a ceiling 300 meters high, and sometimes it
rained inside the base.
lot of our Friends are living among us,” Breccia said, “interacting at ease
with our society, having Earth identities.”
ALIEN BASES HIDDEN IN THE SEAS
Researcher Preston Dennett has written more than 20
books and over 100 articles on UFOs and paranormal phenomena. One of those
books, “Undersea UFO Base: An In-Depth Investigation,” reveals a great deal of
information on a suspected undersea base off the coast of Malibu in Los Angeles
County in Southern California. Dennett spoke to us about his research and why
he continues to believe there is a definite undersea “presence” in the area.
many reasons why I think there might be a base off the coast of Southern
California,” Dennett said. “The area is very deep, in places up to a mile deep,
so there is plenty of room for a base. The number one reason why I think there
might be an undersea base is the huge number of USO [Unidentified Submersible
Objects] accounts in a sharply defined area over a long period of time. I have
documented over 70 UFO cases and 70 USO accounts from the 1920s to the present
day. In these cases, objects are seen diving into the water or coming out of
the water, sometimes both.
several instances,” he continued, “in which boats are targeted by USOs that
travel directly beneath them, sometimes causing the electronics on the boats to
fail. The objects have been seen to move underwater at high speeds. The
witnesses include police officers, the Coast Guard, Navy officers, lifeguards,
fishermen, residents, tourists and more. The USO activity is well-known among
the locals. The question is, why? Could there be a base?”
SHIPS ARISING FROM THE OCEAN DEPTHS
Dennett says that another argument for an undersea
base has to do with “mass sightings” in the region. Some of the UFO/USO cases
involve “UFO fleets” with dozens of UFOs, and, in a few cases, hundreds of
objects. In these cases, he explained, the UFOs were seen coming from below,
all these UFOs coming from? If there’s not an undersea base,” Dennett quipped,
“there’s a parking lot down there.”
And still a third reason Dennett believes in the
reality of an undersea base is the large amount of “whistleblower” accounts he
has unearthed over the years. People who claim to have worked in intelligence
or within the Top Secret area have spoken about a tunnel which leads from Area
51 in Nevada to Edwards Air Force Base in California and on out to sea in the
Santa Catalina/San Pedro Channel area.
“Other whistleblowers say that there is an undersea
Navy base in this area,” he added, “and one claims that it is occupied by both
grays and humans.”
THE MYSTERY OF THE “MALIBU ANOMALY”
Perhaps the most compelling reason for this belief
is something called “The Malibu Anomaly,” an artificial-looking undersea
structure located off the coast of Malibu. The anomaly was first given public
attention by researcher Robert Stanley in 2010. Dennett first heard about the
structure in January 2013, from a private researcher who went by the pseudonym
“Maxwell” and informed him of the anomaly’s location. The following year,
Maxwell used Google applications to obtain photos of the anomaly and published
the photos, which quickly went viral on the Internet.
so-called Malibu Anomaly,” Dennett said, “has three main features that make it
look artificial: It has a smooth flat top. It has what appears to be a row of
giant columns or pillars. And it also has what appears to be a tunnel leading
undersea or underground.”
Dennett provided further details.
Anomaly,” he went on, “is located about six miles off the coast of Malibu
beneath about 2000 feet of water. The object itself is huge, with a roof about
1.35 to 2.45 miles wide. The roof is an estimated 500 feet thick, supported by
massive pillars about 600-700 feet tall. The tunnel entrance is about 2,700
feet wide. By coincidence or not, the Malibu Anomaly is located directly in the
center of the greatest level of USO activity.”
Skeptics admit the object is inarguably there, but
contend that the structure is something natural, not an artificial work made by
intelligent design. Meanwhile, Dennett received a second-hand report from an
elder of the Native American Chumash tribe, who have lived in this area for
many thousands of years.
“The elder said they know about the ‘structure’ and
that it was there long before the Chumash,” Dennett said. “They have no idea
who built it. However big the base is, it has to be big enough to hold at least
200 UFOs at one time.”
BUT THERE IS MUCH MORE TO THE UFO BASES STORY
“Alien Strongholds on Earth” also includes stories of alien bases “hidden in plain sight” in Virginia, near Washington, D.C., as well as in the vast desert areas of the U.S. The deserts are given thorough coverage by Beckley and his stalwarts Regan Lee, Diane Tessman and Scott Corrales.
One section, coauthored by Beckley and his longtime
artist/collaborator, Carol Ann Rodriguez, recounts an adventure the two friends
shared in the jungles of Mexico, where they visited pyramids said to conceal ET
bases and from which issued the strange voices of alien spirits. Another friend
of Beckley’s, the late Donald Worley, writes about small communities throughout
the world that have become “infested” by an alien presence that has established
hidden bases at out-of-the-way rural locations.
But the book offers even more, like the notion that the Greek gods and their home on Mount Olympus might be an ancient rendering of an alien mountain base, as Hercules Invictus, a writer steeped in the subject of Greek mythology, makes a case for here.
Briton Nigel Watson writes about the Nazis and their search for the underground base of the Aryan “gods,” whose assistance they sought in their scheme to conquer the world, a base perhaps located in Antarctica. Meanwhile, the well-known Tim R. Swartz reveals the history of military mind control experiments during which helpless victims – who may also be alien abductees – are taken to hidden bases where humans and aliens work side-by-side on their dark agenda. And Beckley teams up with crystal skull expert Joshua Shapiro for a chapter on the alien presence hidden high in the Andes Mountains, as well as such Peruvian landmarks as the famous and familiar Nazca lines, which are an obvious remnant of the UFO occupants from ancient times that may have served as an aboveground base.
When one reads “Alien Strongholds on Earth” and studies the accumulated research and evidence collected by Beckley’s people, one may feel obliged to concede Beckley’s overriding concept: that alien bases exist all around us, in our deserts, mountains and oceans, as well as possibly in our own neighborhoods.
Regardless if the Ultra-terrestrials
come from the far reaches of space or are the product of some much closer
parallel universe, they seem to make themselves comfortable whenever and
wherever possible, just as nicely situated here on Earth, in most cases, as
they would be back at “home.”
WHY did the gods of old demand blood sacrifices? Of what use to them was the spilled blood of the innocent? And if we examine the more modern state of affairs in Ufology and the paranormal, specifically with regard to the chupacabras/”goat sucker” invasion that took place in the 1990s in Mexico, Puerto Rico and South America, can we truthfully say that this lust for blood on the part of the Ultra-Terrestrials has ever ceased?
These are some of the many questions asked in the newest offering from Inner Light/Global Communications, an ample, weighty tome called “Alien Blood Lust: Are There Vampires In Space?” Once again, publisher, editor and author Timothy Green Beckley takes aim at the warm and fuzzy approach to the aliens and makes his case for a negative, even monstrous, interpretation.
The book opens with Beckley’s characteristic frankness.
Are there real vampires living in outer space? Artist Carol Ann Rodriguez’s depiction here indicates that there are!
“Blood is to some Ultra-Terrestrials what water is to mankind,” he begins. “The flesh and blood of humans – and animals, for that matter, when nothing ‘more upscale’ makes itself available – could be the snack of the gods. Is there a rationale for such a bizarre statement?
“I would say so,” Beckley continues, “and it is a concept that is after all supported by the evidence presented by our primary author, Scott Corrales, as well as our team of seasoned researchers, in what is certain to be a provocative volume.
“Blood may be necessary for at least some Ultra-Terrestrials to drink or ingest through transfusion in order for them to survive while ‘adrift’ in our physical world,” Beckley added. “They may be trespassers from a parallel dimension or alternative universe where blood in its various forms has become a requisite to survival while ‘stationed’ here, in effect making them Vampires from Space.”
SOME CASE HISTORIES OF ALIEN BLOOD LUST
in one of the most horrific encounters of its type, a bloodmobile was chased by a UFO and claw-like appendages attempted to draw the vehicle into the off-world object.
As reported by Beckley in the new book, on the night of March 5th, 1967, two workers in the local Red Cross Bloodmobile in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, were chased by something strange in the sky. Their van was loaded with flesh blood and, despite the fact that they were speeding to get to the hospital with their supply of human plasma, a UFO kept pace and lowered two claw-like projections on either side of their emergency vehicle as if to capture it in its prongs and lift the bloodmobile into the night sky.
On Long Island, New York, a well-respected talk show host was taken to a large “meeting hall” which fronted for the secret headquarters of a strange group of alien “androids” who called themselves “The Council of Ten Men.”
“In the recesses of the building was a hidden laboratory in which what appeared to be several corpses were laid out on examination tables. Next to the ‘corpses’ were rows of test tubes and bottles filled with blood,” the talk show host recounted. “Each bottle was labeled with names, such as ‘CHARLES’ and ‘SUSAN.’ The Ten handled some of the bottles and sampled their contents orally and without facial expressions.”
The whole scene sickened the witness, and she was greatly disturbed by the experience.
THE BLOOD SUCKERS ALMOST LAY WASTE A WHOLE VILLAGE
Dr. Daniel Rebisso Giese.
In a section of “Alien Blood Lust” devoted to the 1977 siege in a Brazilian island town called “Colares,” one reads the account of Dr. Daniel Rebisso Giese. Giese spent five years researching the wave that had locals claiming that, not only had they seen terrifying lights in sky, they had also been attacked by a vampire-like creature they called a “chupa-chupa,” which translates from the original Portuguese as “suck-suck.”
In 1977, strange happenings began to cause unrest in several villages and settlements in Northern Brazil. Unknown lights and unknown creatures were roaming the skies over the Bay of Sao Marcos, in the State of Maranhao, spreading terror throughout the region known as the Lowland Belt.
The people of the backwoods – called Caboclos, the local word for half-breed Brazilian – believed that beings from another world were at large in the area, searching for human blood. The victims were struck by a mysterious light which could penetrate anything and let none escape.
The situation was taken seriously by the Brazilian Air Force, who sent teams into the region and secretly documented everything. They heard the same testimony from hundreds of people, all of whom talked about a “vampire light,” or “a luz chupa-chupa.”
Along the Amazon, a craft nicknamed “Chupa-chupa” (suck-suck) caused panic as it came up out of the ocean to strike local residents with a beam of light, out of which came an alien device which caused puncture wounds on the victims’ skin and removed a great deal of blood from their body.
There are many testimonials in “Alien Blood Lust” of a dramatic nature that show the unparalleled horror the witnesses experienced, such as in the case of Ana Célia Oliveira, a teacher in Colares who was 6 years old at the time:
“I will never forget,” she said. “People and animals were attacked. There was nothing to eat. We were terribly lacking in food. Nobody was fishing. People did not want to go outside to harvest.
“Everyone was trying to move in large groups,” she continued. “Nobody wanted to be alone. All Colares had stopped. At 6 pm it was dark and we went to bed. Groups as numerous as 50 or 60 women and children gathered in a house. The men remained awake all night. They lit fires and tapped pots and pans to make noise to frighten and scare away UFOs. People started shooting in the sky to scare them away.
“We had just heard from our fathers and other men what was happening. We did not know why we went to other people’s houses at night to sleep. At night, people saw many UFOs flying in formation.
“Once I heard a man shoot and I ran to the door and opened it,” Oliveira recalled, “and saw many UFOs in formation. And suddenly they went in all directions. The objects moved very fast. People started shooting in the sky to frighten them. One came over the village, just 15 meters high.”
THE NIGHTMARE SIEGE BEGINS
Extraterrestrial Vampires in the Amazon.
Giese’s book, “Extraterrestrial Vampires in the Amazon,” constitutes impressive evidence furnished by doctors, journalists, soldiers and rural Caboclos all describing unbelievable facts that challenge the limits of our “reality.”
It was July of 1977, a sunny day after the long rainy season of winter, in the little Brazilian town of Viseu. Normally the families would be seated outdoors in the evening, with the children running to and fro. But on this night strange lights were seen moving across the sky, lights of various colors, not ordinary lights or aircraft lights. These lights were completely silent. Some of the more religious-minded locals thought the lights were “signs of the end times.”
The next morning, people arriving from nearby villages had news of a powerful sort of light which, coming down from space, could paralyze you and “suck out” your blood and your energy.
These reports of the “Vampire Light” came to the ears of the man in charge of the local police post, Sergeant Sabino do Nascimento Costa, who considered them of no importance. The mayor of the town, Carlos Cardoso Santos, laughed and gave his verdict that it was all “just fantasy.” Even the priest, who was alarmed that his parishioners were talking about prayers to ward off the evil force, took the same view, calling the reports “the wild imagination of the rural folk. Nothing to it!”
Photographs of UFOs taken by the Brazilian military over the Colares area.
However, the next day, there arrived in town a fisherman and his son. According to the son: “About ten days ago, we were fishing near Ilha Nova. Suddenly we saw a star moving. Its brightness was very strong, stronger than the rest of the stars, and it seemed to be flashing and it came straight toward us. We remembered what we’d heard about the ‘chupa-chupa,’ so we paddled for the river bank and hid in the bushes. We just managed to escape being touched by the light. It was hanging a few meters above our boat and sweeping the whole area with a sort of searchlight, as though probing, seeking.”
In the end the light or object flew off towards the farm of a neighbor.
Another local resident was not so lucky. A hunter was sitting quietly in the thick bushes, awaiting game. An animal appeared, but something in the sky threw down a beam of light onto the animal and made off with it. Meanwhile, the hunter himself could not escape the light, which he felt bearing down on his body and sucking the strength out of him. He was sure he was going to die.
The flying object was shaped like a cylinder and he could hear voices coming from it, speaking in an unknown language. The object departed, but left him powerless. He seemed to have absolutely no strength whatsoever and was hospitalized.
A cylindrical craft was also seen by a woman schoolteacher, who said it shone its beam down on her house. She reported the incident to the same scoffing police sergeant mentioned earlier. He felt that given such testimony from an educated woman, he could not simply ignore her report.
THE FEAR SPREADS AND THE MEDIA RESPONDS
“By now, nobody in the whole area was venturing out at night,” writes Dr. Giese, “no children were playing out of doors, and fishermen were wary about putting out in their boats.”
The phenomenon began spreading to nearby villages and once again the local authorities there at first refused to believe the reports.
“In due course,” Giese writes, “the wave of cases of ‘vampire lights’ over the region turned out to be the greatest ‘UFO Wave’ ever recorded in the whole of Brazil.”
Giese then quotes an area newspaper: “The appearance of an Unidentified Flying Object in the skies over Pinheiro is producing suspense and panic among the population and has stimulated imaginations to such an extent that some are even saying that the object approaches people and then stuns them with a beam of light and extracts their blood. The presence of the craft has been established as certain. There is general terror throughout the region, folk fear to go outside at night, because of rumors that, when the UFO comes down near the ground, it emits an extremely hot luminous beam that burns people’s skins.”
From the mass of reports at the time, it was evident that the UFO’s beam would first immobilize the victim. Then he would feel intense heat and would collapse, some fainting totally. In general, small rural settlements were mainly targeted, and the victims were single, isolated persons or small groups of people.
The panic continued into October-December of 1977, again with no one venturing forth alone at night “for fear of the blood-seeking ‘vampires.’” By that time, some of the rumors and popular theories had grown to be more fantastic than ever. It was even believed by some that the UFOs were part of a secret Japanese plan for contraband trafficking in human blood. There was of course the belief that the UFOs came from other planets and there was the occasional unsubstantiated rumor that a ship had crashed in North East Brazil. But in all his years researching the area, Giese never found any proof for the crash-related rumors.
The Chupa-Chupa lights frightened people so much that men would stay awake all night. They lit bonfires and banged on pots and pans to make noise to scare the UFOs away.
Local men began to band together into patrols at night equipped with firearms as well as fireworks to frighten off the intruders. With the 1977 Ceremony of the Procession of Our Lady of Nazareth, held the second Sunday in October in the city of Belem (the Portuguese form of the name Bethlehem), there came many folks from throughout the Amazon region to take part, bringing with them fresh stories about the chupa-chupa. Many of the stories were now perhaps a bit exaggerated, but people were talking about “vampires that came down sucking human blood, and especially from women’s breasts.”
As the tales ran like wildfire through Belem, women were all growing hysterical; immediate action was needed. And the authorities indeed took action.
Instantly, the local newspapers, which up until then had been reporting very objectively everything about the sightings of the chupa-chupa and their victims, changed their tune overnight. While one newspaper had proclaimed in November that “The Interplanetary Vampire Only Likes Women,” the very next day that same paper ran the headline “The Chupa-Chupa Is Mere Fantasy.”
This section of “Alien Blood Lust” also includes Q and A’s with Giese and a psychiatrist named Dr. Wellaide Carvalho, who came to believe the strange stories told by the locals and refused to be cowed by the Brazilian military into calling the victims crazy. There is also an interview with a Brazilian military official named Colonel Uyrange Hollanda, who similarly would not discount some of the bizarre testimonies he heard while investigating the area where the suck-suck events had occurred. After publicly stating his sympathy for the victims in A.J. Gevaerd’s “UFO Magazine,” Hollanda died from an apparent suicide which many in Ufology feel is, at the least, very suspicious.
The story of the 1977 chupacabras wave is a tale of intense bewilderment, frustration in not knowing what was going on, and, in some cases, a sense of complete panic. Over time, the chupa invasion faded away, but it left its horrifying scars, both physical and emotional, in its wake.
DOWN IN THE TRENCHES WITH THE CHUPACABRAS PHENOMENON
Longtime investigator of UFO incidents in Hispanic communities worldwide, Scott Corrales has kept a journal detailing dozens of encounters with the bloodthirsty Chupacabras creatures.
But all of the above is mere prelude to the meat of the book, the reprinting of the book “The Chupacabras Diaries,” by well-known researcher Scott Corrales. “Alien Blood Lust” also includes a sampling of other related material Corrales has written in the years since.
This is a thorough and scholarly examination of the chupacabras phenomenon that wreaked havoc throughout the countryside in Mexico, Puerto Rico and South America.
Corrales’ sections are intelligently written by the longtime veteran researcher of Ufology and the paranormal who is also a gifted translator by profession. Corrales’ language expertise helps to make heartfelt connections with the largely Hispanic population who have suffered the goat-sucker and who still seek answers to the nightmarish mystery. Corrales spoke firsthand to witnesses and visited some of the locales where the events had taken place.
Corrales’ work features several transcripts of conversations on talk radio in which real people grapple with the terror and strangeness of the chupacabras. It demonstrates that the phenomenon is not just a hoax but something real people have been forced to deal with on an ongoing basis.
Corrales teaches many of us a new word: “Exsanguinated,” meaning drained of blood, made bloodless. He also points out that the amount of blood consumed by a chupacabras would be many times its own body weight, so perhaps the creature is collecting blood for someone besides just itself?
THE MONSTER THAT REFUSES TO SIMPLY GO AWAY
“If reality resembled the world of fiction more closely,” Corrales writes in “Alien Blood Lust,” “monsters would be put down with the finality of Lieutenant Ripley purging the hideous alien xenomorph out of an airlock, consigning it to the vacuum of space. The sense of finality and justice delivered by a wooden stake through the undead heart of a cinematic vampire imparts catharsis, but we find none of that with the monsters and visions that persistently manifest themselves in our reality. After eighteen months of depredations in West Virginia in 1966-67, the Mothman disappeared into legend and the uneasy dreams of those whose encounters changed the course of their lives. Hunters and scientists emerge from forays after the elusive Bigfoot with little to show for their efforts, save the tell-tale strands of hair and plaster casts that have become a trademark of their avocation.
The Chupacabras have caused terror far and wide.
“The same can be said for the Chupacabras,” Corrales continues. “The protean creature manifested for the first time in Puerto Rico in the mid-90s, followed by a rash of sightings throughout Latin America, each time described a little differently than before. Media burnout and the trivialization of the subject by popular culture – the cascade of t-shirts and bumper stickers, rap and ranchero songs, cheap plastic memorabilia sold in marketplaces – resulted in a loss of interest in the creature’s exploits in Brazil and Chile later that decade.
“But the Chupacabras keeps coming back like a prize fighter, unmindful of the fatuous pronouncements of skeptics, as well as efforts at fitting it into the UFO totem-pole by researchers bent on seducing the media once more, their prize a conference invitation or the lure of a television show. The demon is triumphant.”
The Puerto Rican media approached the subject of the paranormal predator again in 2012, when reporter Yaritza Santiago wrote an article for El Nuevo Dia about the entity’s return to the scene, this time in the island municipality of Vieques: “A strange wild animal prowls the verdant fields and communities of this island municipality. This is the only way to explain the discovery of dead horses, hens and rabbits in situations that terrified Viequenses have ascribed to a panther that allegedly escaped from an American tourist’s possession. Others say it is a jaguar; still others speak of the return of the Chupacabras, whose existence they do not question for a second.”
THE BATTLEFIELD OF THE KILLER WHO OPERATED AT LEISURE
Thirty chickens met an untimely demise on the property of José Martínez and his wife Jeami in Barrio La Hueca. The couple had gone off to a birthday party on the previous night, returning home an hour before midnight. They went to bed and Mr. Martínez woke up at half past five in the morning to feed the family animals. In the cold glow of his flashlight, José was startled to find the roosters dead in their cages, with deep puncture marks on their backs, drained of blood. The couple told reporters that they had not heard any abnormal sounds in the night.
José, 26, and Jeami, 21, described the massacre of their animals as “a battlefield” where the unknown assailant had operated at leisure. Jeami remained convinced that the perpetrator was none other than the mysterious being that spread fear throughout Puerto Rico during her childhood. “It wasn’t a dog. I think it could be the Chupacabras.”
Reporters from the local media who investigated the incident were told of a “radar image” of a strange creature taken by a U.S. Marines radar, and observed that the fear among the island’s population was quite real.
Physical descriptions of the chupacabra vary. Some reports describe a creature with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail.
Corrales writes further that, “On the main island of Puerto Rico, news organizations were covering the ‘gargoyle’ that supposedly haunted the vicinity of Guánica, the city with the magnificent bay on the Caribbean Sea. This nightmarish vision had attacked not only animals, but allegedly humans as well. Its patterns of attack resembled those of the Chupacabras, but not exactly the same entity. ‘Some identified it with the Chupacabras, but others believe it was a different creature, a sly and sinister one, using the ruins and tunnels of the [abandoned] Central Guánica sugar mill as its lair,’ wrote Pedro Bosque in an article for El Nuevo Dia. It was in this warren of half-flooded, weed-choked tunnels that the skeletons of its victims were reportedly found.
According to Corrales, “Despite its predilection for lovely Guánica, the ‘gargoyle’ had reportedly been seen in Lajas and San Germán, communities in southwestern Puerto Rico that acquired notoriety in the late ‘80s and throughout the 1990s as paranormal hotspots. And unlike those relatively distant years, eyewitnesses were reluctant to share their names with the media, particularly when it came to the attacks on humans.
“These incidents were discussed in hushed tones. One witness interviewed by the press claimed seeing injuries on a man’s belly, produced by an ‘animal with large wings’ whose claws had torn at his flesh ‘to the extent that his fat could be seen.’ The unnamed witness spoke soberly of seeing the victim lift his t-shirt to display the wounds received in his own backyard.
“Police officer Miguel Negrón, on the other hand, admitted to hearing ‘a loud sound of flapping wings’ while patrolling the abandoned sugar mill. Was an unknown avian taking off from the rusted cranes of the old mill? According to the officer, the ‘gargoyle’ had been described by some as a very large bird reeking of sulfur or rot (hydrogen sulfide?), feeding on live animals such as dogs, cats and horses by exsanguination.”
OTHER VOICES ARE HEARD
“Alien Blood Lust” also includes a contribution by a writer named Hercules Invictus, who interestingly enough still believes in the Greek pantheon of gods, to include Zeus and all his fellows. With his thorough command of Greek mythology, Hercules gives us a lesson on how blood and blood sacrifice figure in the stories of the denizens of Mount Olympus. Is human blood the true nectar and ambrosia of the gods?
Newly discovered evidence exists in the form of a 16th century oil painting, indicating that the real Dracula might have been an alien. One can see a decidedly disc-shaped device hovering above the home of Vlad the Impaler.
Nigel Watson, a British writer on paranormal topics, discusses how the Dracula legend may offer hints of a UFO connection. One has most likely heard of Vlad the Impaler, said to be the historical template for the later Bram Stoker character. Watson explains that there exists in a church in Romania (in the town that was Vlad’s old stomping grounds) a 16th century oil painting of dear old Vlad with what looks like a UFO – a strange disc-like craft emitting smoke – hovering over him in the background. It’s not exactly “proof,” but it does help to illustrate the notion of a flying saucer/vampire relationship rather neatly.
And finally there is a chapter by Tim R. Swartz, the veteran of much psychic warfare, who gives an overview of the history of cattle mutilation in the US, a phenomenon that peaked in 1975 but continues to linger in sporadic incidents. Swartz also writes about cases of human mutilations that have been covered-up by military and government officials. One such case is the 1956 incident at the White Sands Missile Range, an army base in southern New Mexico, where a soldier’s body was found mutilated with surgical skill and with no traces of blood left behind. The official verdict was that the soldier had died in the desert of “exposure.”
WHY THE BLOOD SUCKER PHENOMENON IS EVIL
While there are those that might characterize the blood lust phenomenon as repellent but basically “morally neutral,” we should give some thought to the Biblical Book of Leviticus, chapter 17, which unequivocally declares:
…13 And if any Israelite or foreigner living among them hunts down a wild animal or bird that may be eaten, he must drain its blood and cover it with dirt. 14 For the life of all flesh is its blood. Therefore I have told the Israelites, ‘You must not eat the blood of any creature,’ because the life of every creature is its blood; whoever eats it must be cut off. 15 And any person, whether native or foreigner, who eats anything found dead or mauled by wild beasts must wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he will be unclean until evening; then he will be clean.…
The verses are clearly saying that eating the blood of an animal is an unclean thing and reason for expulsion from the community. Since there is this Biblical law unmistakably against consuming blood, one would think the chupacabras is something demonic, since it openly defies the laws of God and consumes blood as a nourishment.
Blood has always been part of the hidden agenda of the Ultra-Terrestrials, from the days of “ancient astronauts” – and their apparent demand for human sacrifices – to the animal mutilations of today.
“We think nothing of butchering a steer,” Beckley writes, “in order to get its most succulent cuts, so who is to say the aliens don’t see us in the same light, figuring us for a welcome meal on their journey through the cosmos?”
I’ve never tried to conceal the fact that I worked in the adult entertainment industry. No, I wasn’t a porn star though I did have a cameo role in a film shot in San Francisco and starring Candy Samples. Candy was at one time married to soft porn producer Russ – “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls” – Meyer. Although Meyer has been deceased for many years, his films are still available with the income going to his estate.
Raven de la Croix
Most notable is the fact that our friend and Sedona, Arizona, UFO abductee – the very talented actress, dancer and artist Raven de la Croix – can be seen strutting her feminine wiles in Russ’s box office hit “Raven,” doubtlessly named after Ms. de la Crois in honor of her charm and beauty. Later on, Raven describes in these pages her sexual encounter and abduction at the hands of the aliens.
At one point back in the mid-1970s I was the movie critic for Hustler Magazine (Larry Flynt was too creepy for my taste) and a couple of years later Editor-in-Chief of Adult Cinema Review. So, whenever an adult film starlet was in town, chances are I would hook up with them to do an interview or attend a screening of their most recent XXX flick. I can’t say a lot of them had UFO experiences, but a few did, and others were mildly interested in the subject enough so that we would hang out at Bernard’s, a bar just off the Minnesota Strip, a section of the Times Square “red light district” that catered to some rather hot-blooded ladies who worked the neighborhood peep shows and topless bars. 42nd Street was kind of raw in those days, and a real draw for out- of-towners – way out- of-towners in our case, I would say.
Model-turned-actress Marilyn Chambers had a very provocative abduction experience.
“Behind the Green Door” star Marilyn Chambers was one of the better known adult film actresses. In fact, she had been at one point an aspiring model whose face graced the box cover of Ivory Snow detergent. She was also a legit singer and a dancer, though she would still shake her booty at some of the Manhattan strip clubs where she would attract a sizeable crowd and make an evening very profitable, both through a cut of the door and tips that her fans lavished upon her (they would throw the fives and tens in a bucket as she paraded around the room).
To say the least, it was all good in the hood – if that was the kind of excitement you were seeking.
I should explain that Chambers was, when I met her, married to a Svengali-type guy by the name of Chuck Traynor, who was previously hitched to “Deep Throat’s” Linda Lovelance. Lovelace claimed that Traynor had forced her into adult films by holding a gun to her head and beating her to have sex with other men. I can’t comment on these allegations. I did have lunch with Traynor, who came off as being the ultimate sleaze, and he was disliked by most adult film industry people (cast and crew). But that has nothing to do with our UFO tale.
The National Tattler.
I wrote up Marilyn’s UFO encounter for the National Tattler, a weekly tabloid that actually printed a lot of stories on the paranormal and were fairly accurate in their reporting, especially when I was one of their stringers and had a UFO event to tell. They were more likely to take a story than the Enquirer, which had a higher, tougher criterion when it came to accepting freelance articles. Marilyn, as I recall, was stopped at a red light when a UFO parked itself overhead and followed her, keeping pace with her car for a couple of miles. If you can find the account in an old issue of Saga’s UFO Report, which I have since lost, I believe there was an illustration that she did for me of the ship which I can’t find the original of either.
What I promised not to reveal at the time was Marilyn’s sexual abduction experience, which she was afraid of telling for fear it might harm her career. She had released an album of disco music and wanted to go “legit” and thought this might possibly damage her reputation (fat chance!). Don’t make me laugh, but I did keep my promise to keep her experience to myself. But now, since MC passed away many years ago, I can tell all about what transpired to the best of my recollection.
The night of her UFO sighting, which I think might have taken place in Detroit or Chicago – but don’t hold me to that – Marilyn had gone to bed around midnight. There was a storm, she said, brewing outside, but she had kept the window ajar to take in a bit of fresh air. Shortly thereafter, a bright light shone into her bedroom which she initially thought was someone attempting to turn around in the street.
Suddenly, Marilyn says her bed was surrounded by three or four shadowy figures who reached out, beginning to touch and caress her. Chambers admitted to me that since she was in real life easy to excite sexually so she thought perhaps she was simply experiencing a nocturnal orgasm in a dream state. But the hands felt all too real.
“They certainly were not what you would call tender caresses,” she elaborated.
What did the figures and hands look like?
“Well, they were a bit longer and bonier than those of a human,” Marilyn answered, “and they had large heads and a broad torso, but they weren’t monstrous or anything.”
Like many other abductees, Chambers said she was pulled through the wall and found herself inside some sort of tiny compartment somewhere outside of her apartment. She says the beings proceeded to have their way with her.
“I can’t say it wasn’t pleasurable. They invited me to have a drink with them and this settled my nerves and made me more relaxed.”
Unlike some of the abductees who feel they are being used in some form of experimentation, Marilyn did not get that impression.
“They seemed to find it very pleasurable,” she recalled. “I wasn’t forced, but neither was I a completely willing partner!”
Frankly, I can’t recall how or under what circumstances Chambers returned home. It’s as much a blur to me now as it was to her at the time of her experience. Figuring I wouldn’t have to document her story, I probably didn’t take very good notes. I remember conducting the interview and the background noise was so overwhelming when I tried to transcribe the tape I probably never completed the job.
If there are any other adult performers out there who have had UFO experiences drop me a line. We’ll keep your identity to ourselves, or blab it to the world, whatever whets your “noodle” (hum, hum).
THE NORDICS HAVE THEIR WAY
The sexy Nordic space women are a sight to behold in their form-fitting jumpsuits.
Most followers of the UFO mystery will know of what and whom I speak when I say that there are presumably Nordic-type “Space Brothers” living on the Earth alongside us mere mortals, who, while from another place and time, manage to reside here without being detected. Some may not even realize that they have come from the stars, either literally or having reincarnated into an earthly body to make the journey.
To my way of thinking, the Nordics are your dyed-in-the-wool Aryans. Blonde hair. Blue eyes. Six feet tall. They give the impression that they have just gotten off the set of a daytime TV soap opera, perfect teeth, long tapered fingers and a sleek and slender waste line. From what we hear, the Nordic space women are a sight to behold in their form-fitting jump suits. (We’re told no bras are worn on their home planets.) The early contactees George Adamski, Truman Bethrum and Orfeo Angelucci spoke of these visually stunning alien women in glowing terms, but they never did let us peek behind the veil to see what they might have done to support these peace-loving confederation travelers, especially when a close contact was made in the moonlight of the Mojave Desert.
Indeed, we would like to know just how close were these close encounters?
Truman Bethrum’s human wife did identify Aura Raines as the cause of their breakup in divorce papers that she filed in California, and one source close to the contactee once said: “Truman told me that Aura was a sight to behold, even for the most discriminating earthmen’s eye.”
HOWARD MENGER WAS DIFFERENT!
The Venusian girl on the rocks as illustrated on the front cover of Menger’s book “From Outer Space to You”
Since this is not a book about the Space Brothers or about UFOs in particular, but one about the sexcapades of our off-world visitors, we promise to stay more or less on topic.
I knew Howard Menger fairly well. He and his wife Connie were good eggs, as far as I was concerned, despite what some skeptical folks might have said about their supposed adventures in space warp speed. Even after they retired from their sign painting business, they would make the long haul from Vero Beach, Florida, to Phoenix or San Diego to speak at my various UFO expos, even going so far as to drag, in a mini-trailer behind their auto, the “XR-1,” a homespun saucer-shaped craft that Howard had built and which he said would eventually fly, or had flown once before, using a series of rotating magnets as its principle means of propulsion. Howard had gotten the plans for this device from his outer space friends, who looked remarkably human and were often seen landing and coming out of your typical saucer-shaped craft that would park in the apple orchard behind his High Bridge, New Jersey home.

In the mid-1950s Howard held an outdoor convention on his property that was well-attended, mainly due to the support given by Long John Nebel, the dean of all night talk show hosts, who was the originator of the paranormal/UFO broadcast type program, long before Art Bell took over the dusk to dawn airwaves (and so recognized). Photographed seated and taking notes on Menger’s grounds was said to be the spaceman, Val Thor, who later was to befriend the late minister Rev. Frank E. Stranges. Stranges had met Valiant inside the Pentagon, where he had stayed with our government’s knowledge for three years. In general, it can be said that from time to time, some very strange “people” were showing up on Menger’s estate. No one who hung around his place on a regular basis hoping for a spacey contact of their own could possibly deny this fact.
As Howard told the story later in life, the sun was shining brightly on that day in 1932 – a day that was to change Menger’s life forever and shape the belief patterns of many who were to be drawn in the years ahead to his uniquely divergent sense of reality.
“There, sitting on a rock by the brook,” Menger poetically reminisced in his memoirs, “The High Bridge Incident,” “was the most exquisite woman my young eyes had ever beheld! The warm sunlight caught the highlights of her long golden hair as it cascaded around her face and shoulders. The curves of her lovely body were delicately contoured . . . revealed through the translucent material of clothing which reminded me of the habit that skiers wear.” To say that the young Howard Menger was more “unworldly wise” than his age would seem to allow is no minor point when relating his life’s most impacting moments.
Howard and Connie Menger
Howard continues by explaining that the lady on the rock “turned her head in my direction. Even though very young, the feeling I received was unmistakable. It was a tremendous surge of warmth, love and physical attraction, which emanated from her to me. Suddenly, all my anxiety was gone, and I approached her as one would an old friend or loved one. She seemed to radiate and glow as she sat on the rock, and I wondered if it were due to the unusual quality of the material she wore, which had a shimmering, shiny texture not unlike but far surpassing the sheen of nylon. The clothing had no buttons, fasteners or seams I could discern. She wore no makeup, which would have been unnecessary to the fragile transparency of her camellia-like skin with pinkish undertones. Her eyes, opalescent discs of gold, turned their smiling affection on me with a tranquil luminescence.”
This initial contact with a minor under the age of ten did seem overly amorous for such a young boy – we hesitate to think that it went any further than just a brief flirtation and did not involve lewd and lascivious behavior with a minor.
In 1946, when he returned home from the war, Menger met the stone girl again, but this time she had come out of a UFO clad in a gray-blue plaid outfit that outlined her perfect body. After informing her about her mission on Earth – spreading love and peace among men – the girl kissed Menger. He asked if they would see each other again, getting a negative answer. But she promised that one day he would meet her sister, a Venusian incarnated on Earth. “She will work with you and be with you for a lifetime. You will recognize her as soon as you see her,” the saucerian gal confirmed.
The ironic punchline is that years later Howard DID come face-to-face with this spacewoman’s identical twin. Initially, Howard thought that an attractive blonde named Connie Weber, who showed up at one of his conclaves, was the same woman he had met as a youth on the back forty. Eventually, he surmised that she was the reincarnation of a spacewoman that he had known in a biblical sense in a previous life on Venus. Howard divorced his first wife and married the beautiful blonde interplanetary lookalike. They had two wonderful girls and did work together for many decades before Howard passed into the Venusian sunset. (Connie died a few years ago at the age of 95.)
THE MUNDANE AND THE EXTRAORDINARY
But to get on with our story.
At one point in my publishing career I was a contributing editor for a number of Penthouse-style forum magazines. These were the digest-sized publications that printed actual letters from readers describing their sexual experiences, anywhere from telling how they lost their virginity to how they got away with cheating on their mate. Penthouse Forum was the most “prestigious” of these publications and, being attached to a magazine that sold over two million copies at one point, it had quite a run and could boast of a couple hundred thousand readers at its peak.
There were numerous imitators and these are the publishers I worked for. My job was to rewrite the letters to make them readable. Let me tell you, that was often a hard task. Forgetting the bad punctuation and the terrible spelling, just to read some of these letters and format them so they could be sent to the typesetter was a daunting undertaking. One such digest was Velvet Touch, the offspring of the glossy Velvet, which made a gallant attempt to produce a publication that was “hot enough” to satisfy the most jaded sexual tastes of its largely male audience, yet tried, at the same time, to appear mainstream enough so that women would also purchase the product. If the publishers were lucky enough, they would get the news dealer to place Velvet Touch as close to Cosmopolitan as possible, hoping to attract a bit of a crossover audience.
The publisher at one point was kind enough to place an ad of mine on the magazine’s back cover (which he was unable to sell anyway). In bold type, it screamed – “FORCED INTO SEX ONBOARD A FLYING SAUCER.” I can’t even remember what I was trying to sell!
As it turned out, most of the names on the letters I edited showed that Velvet Touch never really reached far into the women’s market. And while nobody got paid for writing the letters the magazine published, we did have a couple of contributors who seemed to maintain an active sex life and were willing to air their more mundane sexcapades in our pages – more mundane, that is, when compared to the adventures with the sexterrestrials we now find ourselves confronted by.
ROMANTIC RENDEZVOUS ALIEN-STYLE
Reviewing the details of Howard Menger’s romantic interlude with the woman on the rock, this tale positions itself, if anywhere, in the category of a tender alien relationship, which you might think actually belongs as part of the relatively new publishing genre known as “Alien Human Romance,” but we have proof that the New Jersey contactee beat these would-be modern alien romance novelists by several decades. A quick trip to Amazon.com will find such pandering titles you can place in your internet shopping cart as “Alien Pregnant Bride,” “His Alien Virgin,” “Alien Savior” (from the cover, this book looks like it takes a bi-sexual approach to ET lovemaking), and “Alien Sex 101,” which I would have every reason to believe is too much of a primer for our more advanced sexterrestrial hip readers.
Note: My personal “alien out of sexual control” award has to go to “His Human Slave,” described thusly: “COLLARED AND CAGED, HIS HUMAN SLAVE AWAITS HER TRAINING . . . She’s a human, born into slavery . . . Prince Zander bought and paid for her, which means she’s his now. His to use. His to impregnate. Because according to a gene-matching program, she’ll produce the best offspring.”
And you thought alien anal probes couldn’t easily be outdone in this paranormal universe where almost anything seems plausible?
By the way, on a cosmic scale of one to ten, I am told you merely have to look to your average star voyagers from the Pleiades to find the most beautiful spacewomen around (sorry you weren’t so lucky, Mr. Boas).
THE WITCHES AND THE EAGER STUDENT OF THE OCCULT
During the early 1970s, I had organized one of the first metaphysical schools in the country. We had some really talented psychics and occultists teaching a variety of classes on anything from astral projection to reading the tarot cards. People were passing through our doors all day and night to sign up for classes.
I guess I got to meet a lot of unusual people in those days. Like my two female witch friends, Walli Elmlark and the very buxom Witch Hazel (she really had her name changed, she showed me her driver’s license). Walli was the White Witch of New York who wrote a column for the rock magazine Circus. She introduced me to David Bowie and invited King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp to join us in a sky-watch. Hazel, on the other hand, wore black clothing, rode a motorcycle, had a pilot’s license and once or twice sketched out scenes from her past life where she had been tortured – half naked – at the hands of some ruthless male priests. Completely bizarro. But when the pot smoke drifted away, everyone seemed quite normal.
Tim Beckley’s favorite witches: the voluptuous Witch Hazel and the White Witch of New York, Walli Elmlark.
One of the occult school patrons by the name of Ruthie signed up for a couple of classes, and, since she was spending a few hours a week hanging around, we would chit-chat from time to time. She was a rather stocky brunette with curves in all the right places. Hey, I was young and single and had an eye for the ladies, though I made it a policy not to ask out those who entered through our doors who were presumably coming for spiritual guidance.
Ruthie was the type of person who had no problem discussing whatever was on her mind.
One day she told me something was troubling her and, as I was the chief guru, she wanted my opinion.
She told me before signing up for classes at our school that she had attended the functions of a group uptown who had been a lot “darker” in their approach to the occult. Not that we were what you would call “New Age Bliss Bunnies,” but most of our group had aspirations to do good with the paranormal talents they possessed and would even sometimes turn down those who openly said they were seeking psychic revenge on someone who they felt had wronged them or tried to steal their lover away. Things can get rather messy on the astral plane and you don’t know who – or what – you might attract, so “better to leave well enough alone” seemed to be the order of the day at the New York School of Occult Arts and Sciences.
“I met this rather handsome guy over at the other group who was channeling UFO entities on a regular basis,” Ruthie said. “I liked the messages he was receiving. In fact, he looked like one of the messengers from space he called Ashtar.”
As we’ve mentioned, these Nordic, humanoid, Ultra-Terrestrials are typically male, six to seven feet tall with long blond hair, blue eyes and skin tones ranging from fair to tanned, perhaps a bit on the feminine or androgynous side, sort of like a real Ziggy Stardust. They were mostly benevolent and most often possessed telepathic powers that would enable them to read the minds of humans.
Ruthie told me she liked being in the company of this individual since he seemed so “spiritually aware” – and she admitted she was digging on his good looks. After a channeling session at “the other” psychic facility across town, the gentleman (I can’t remember what she told me his actual name was, but let’s just call him “Paul”) asked Ruthie to come back to his apartment to continue the evening’s discussion on UFOs and the arrival of the space brotherhood, which he predicted would happen within a few years (a lot of us thought this might be the case in the early to mid-1970s).
Paul went on weaving the philosophical beliefs of the space brethren into the conversation as they sat sharing the same couch. As the night went on a “warm feeling” overtook the girl, who months later was telling me of her night on the town with a space channeler. She said she didn’t feel shy and that she was beginning to get turned on to him being so close. She was not about to refuse his advances if he tried to make one.
But something more “inappropriate” transpired.
“Before I knew it – and without warning me – Paul slipped into a trance state and began to channel some unearthly entity. But it wasn’t the gentle Ashtar, it was someone who spoke in a more powerful, more uneven, authoritarian voice. He said most earthlings were weak and could not stand up for themselves if an attack from space were to take place. In particular, he said the women of our species were easily manipulated and with that he put his hands on me and began to caress my body harshly but in a masterful way.”
Luckily, there was no one around us as she related her story or I might have been the one to have become embarrassed over the conversation. Ruthie insisted she had little to say about the outcome of the awkward situation she found herself in. “It felt as if I had been partially hypnotized or was under the channeler/spaceman’s mental control. I could not pull away from him as he pressed me to the couch and had his way.”
Ruthie insists the sex was “sort of consensual,” in that she was not drugged nor was she physically forced ultimately to do anything against her will. In fact, she admitted to me that it was the best orgasm she ever had and if offered a ride onboard one of their craft she would not hesitate to take a trip to their home planet. I think she said this half in jest, but maybe she wasn’t kidding, a possibility I considered when I had a chance to think about our conversation later.
Ruthie says she was really “feeling the vibes” from the channeler, but once he came out of the state of mind he was in he didn’t seem to show a great deal of interest in carrying on with the conversation which they then finished up rather quickly.
“I attended a few more of his channeling sessions, and Paul was very civil to me after that night on the couch,” Ruthie remembered. “But the group we were involved in dissolved eventually and I didn’t see him around after that.”
Ruthie wanted to know if she should feel guilty about experiencing a great deal of sexual satisfaction with the entity who almost seemed to possess the body of the UFO channel. I told her it probably wasn’t a good idea to be put into such a compromising position as one might never know until it’s too late what they had gotten themselves into. It could be that the entity was demonic, even if the channeler was not a black magician like Aleister Crowley.
I guess she took my advice as she never brought up the subject again.
I found that such cases as this were not that unusual; though it’s not something most workshop attendees felt comfortable in talking about – only at Tim Beckley’s NY Occult Center it seemed to be OK!
This article could easily be titled “Sex Among The Stars” or “How ET Wishes To Mate With You!” For whether it’s the greys, the insectoids, the Dero of subterranean legend, the reptilians or the handsome Nordic space brothers, the term “close encounters” takes on a whole new meaning. Close is close, but this is really as close as you can possibly get – even to the point of molestation in all its various forms.
· Are you ready to explore a region of the paranormal that is typically relegated to the “ghetto” neighborhood of UFO research? Does the idea of sex with aliens thrill you or repel you? Reading the latest book from Global Communications/Inner Light, called “Screwed By The Aliens,” will help you make up your mind.
· If the subject is new to you, you will likely be surprised to learn how commonplace sexual incidents onboard the ships and among the aliens truly are. It’s a frequent happenstance but is rarely talked about, even among diehard believers in alien abduction.
· Some researchers have long defined the involuntary nature of alien abduction, with its many invasive and painful elements, as a form of “rape” – whether or not sex takes place during the given encounter experience. But, as “Screwed By The Aliens” demonstrates, there are numerous cases where physical sex between humans and aliens DOES take place.
· Case studies from the files of various researchers show a cross-section of responses to the alien sexual encounter. Some experiencers say that sex with aliens is much more pleasurable than anything offered by a human lover while others recall the traumatizing nightmare of being physically powerless and endure a never-ending sense of personal violation.
The topic of ETs and their sexual mores has spawned a wide variety of counterculture products – like punk rock groups such as Alien Sex Fiends and even comic books and trading cards.
After more than half a century spent covering UFOs and their related phenomena, journalist, editor and publisher Timothy Green Beckley encountered a new word, one not quite ready to be added when the Webster’s Dictionary’s routinely updates recent additions to the English language.
The word Beckley discovered is “exophiliac,” and you may be surprised to learn that it means “a person who craves sex with aliens.”
If, on the other hand, you shy away from the aliens and want them to keep their hands to themselves, you are a bit harder to classify, Beckley explains. “Astrophobia” is a fear of outer space and everything in it, so that would include ETs. Xenophobia is a fear of anyone from another place, often defined as a “fear of foreigners.”
“Perhaps we can create our own verbiage to describe this fear,” Beckley ventures. “Something like Exophobic perhaps? As I see it, if it’s good for you, it works for me.”
The book includes contributions from myself (in the interest of full disclosure) as well as 17 other researchers and authors. Some of the biggest names in the field are represented here, to include John Keel and Brad Steiger, both of whom are deceased but whose pioneering work in going beyond the “nuts-and-bolts” school of UFOlogy continues to influence the field in many ways. By employing multiple authors for the book, Beckley is able to provide numerous perspectives on the issue of sexual contact that run the gamut from extremely hostile accusations of rape to more benign beliefs, like a benevolent hybrid breeding program that will ultimately save mankind from total extinction.
The notion that alien contact often includes a sexual component is not exactly a new one. But it has been relegated, for the most part, to a seldom-acknowledged, embarrassing “ghetto” neighborhood of Ufology that most researchers prefer to simply ignore. It is Beckley’s intention to confront the sexual issue head on, from many points of view, and as honestly as the data allows.
THE FIRST SEXUAL ABDUCTION CASE OF THE MODERN UFO ERA
Brazilian farmer (who later became a well-established lawyer) Antonio Villas Boas was the first to receive attention for a sexual encounter after his experience onboard a UFO with a female alien who had intercourse with him.
If you accept the notion that the modern UFO era began with the Kenneth Arnold sighting in 1947, then you should also allow for the first known and recorded sexual abduction case as having happened ten years later. In October of 1957, a 23-year-old Brazilian farmer named Antonio Villas Boas was taken from his tractor to what he thought at first was a shining star descending to Earth. In his terror, he tried to flee on foot but was forcibly taken onboard an alien spacecraft.
There Boas was stripped naked and a sample of his blood was taken. A nude woman entered the room where he was being held. She began to caress him, ultimately seducing him. After Boas and the female had intercourse together, two of the “crewmen” appeared and summoned the woman away. Before leaving, she turned to the farmer and pointed at her belly, then pointed at him, and finally at the heavens.
“After having served as breeding stock,” writes author Scott Corrales in a chapter in the new book, “Antonio was unceremoniously led off the vehicle, which took off immediately.”
Though it was widely ridiculed in its day, the Antonio Villas Boas case is, pardon the expression, a “seminal” one in the history of alien abduction, especially abductions that have a sexual element. The crucial story is covered by Corrales and a few of the other contributors to “Screwed By The Aliens,” allowing the incident to be seen from the varying perspectives of the assortment of writers Beckley has gathered.
SOUL MATE FROM THE STARS
Artist David Huggins insists he has mated with Crescent, a female alien, since the age of 17, and has produced a number of alien children. A movie “Love and Saucers” can be found streaming on Amazon and elsewhere.
By contrast, a longtime acquaintance of Beckley’s, the artist David Huggins, describes a much different sort of relationship with a pretty female alien. Huggins is quite open in calling the interstellar lover named Crescent his “soul mate.”
In an interview conducted for the podcast “Exploring the Bizarre,” which Beckley co-hosts with writer Tim R. Swartz, Huggins was asked: “Isn’t it true that you consider your relationship with Crescent to be a beautiful relationship that has blossomed into an interspecies romance that has lasted for decades and has resulted in Crescent bearing your children?”
“That would be an accurate description of the ongoing experience,” Huggins replied.
Along with filling many canvases that depict his amorous adventures with Crescent, Huggins has also done a movie called “Love and Saucers” that tells their story on film. The movie is available for VOD streaming on iTunes, Amazon, Vimeo, Google Play and YouTube. It’s a fascinating reversal of the more frequently encountered horrifying atrocities of sex-related UFO experiences and may truly be a case of “Love Triumphant.”
THE TRULY UNFUNNY ANAL PROBE
In popular culture, one of the of the best known alien/sexual story elements is the “anal probe,” which began as a tortured admission by “Communion” author Whitley Strieber when he described being rectally penetrated by some kind of alien device whose purpose was unknown to him. A doctor who examined Strieber afterwards told him that the tissue damage in his rectal area indicated that the author had obviously been “raped.” When Strieber included the anal rape episode in “Communion,” as well as in the 1989 movie version of his bestseller, it quickly became a cultural giggle and heaped even more ridicule on an already deeply humiliated Strieber.
“Screwed By The Aliens” features a chapter that chronicles the progress of the “anal probe” meme and its use by, for example, the “South Park” cartoon series on Comedy Central. In an interview I did with Strieber nearly 30 years ago, he told me that he regretted going public with his anal probe experience but felt that he owed it to his readership to be honest about it. Contrary to popular opinion, he felt he was being “compulsively honest” as opposed to being a “compulsive liar.”
UNCOVERING THE MEMORIES OF RAPE
The late Dr. Karla Turner was an outspoken advocate of “human rights” for those abducted by aliens. She and her family had all suffered the alien abduction experience and she devoted the rest of her life to researching the phenomenon that had so profoundly changed her perception of reality. She eventually wrote three books on the subject that are now considered classics, “Into the Fringe,” “Taken” and “Masquerade of Angels.”
According to another late abduction researcher, Budd Hopkins, the simple fact that alien abduction is an involuntary experience, that a person is “taken” without the person’s permission, forces one to define the experience as a form of “rape.”
But what Turner was talking about went way beyond a sort of “metaphorical” rape; she was instead accusing the aliens of the literal and physical sexual violation of their powerless human victims. Turner claimed deception was often used by the aliens to make the abductee a willing sexual partner. The alien might take the form of an abductee’s spouse or disguise itself as a celebrity that the abductee was known to find attractive. The perversions involved are also quite disturbing to read about, such as alien pedophilia and their forcing abductees to have bestial sex with animals. Anyone who reads these accounts, if the stories are to be taken at face value, would quite naturally feel morally outraged, disgusted and angry.
But Turner herself cautions the reader that claims of this nature, usually made by abductees who undergo regressive hypnosis to recover memories from within an alien-imposed amnesia, have to be weighed very carefully before one leaps to any easy conclusions. The strangeness and the high drama could have numerous possible causes and the simple gratification of alien prurient desires is but one possibility among many.
DEATHS THAT SILENCED HUMAN DISSENT
Artist Wes Crum depicts how some aliens have abducted humans – in many cases women for nefarious purposes.
Yet Turner certainly had her allies in the field. The late Barbara Bartholic, an Oklahoma-based researcher, joined Turner’s team and did much of the hypnotic regression work for Turner’s investigation into alien sexual abuse. A hypnotic regression session with abductee Ted Rice conducted by Bartholic is included in “Screwed By The Aliens” in which Rice relives a sexual encounter involving intercourse between his then-living grandmother and his deceased grandfather. An alien took the form of his late grandfather in order to seduce his unwilling grandmother into sexual congress. As I said, it’s often very disturbing stuff.
You may have noticed reading this article that a great many of the experts quoted in the new book are now deceased. In the cases of Turner (who died of cancer in 1996) and Bartholic (who died of a stroke in 2010), people who followed their work and agreed with their estimation of the situation believe the two women were taken before their time by a hostile alien presence that didn’t want any opposition to its evil agenda – that they were simply murdered because of their anti-alien beliefs.
If that is the case, then it hasn’t stopped Eve Lorgen, another abduction researcher, from openly declaring her determination to follow in the footsteps of Turner and Bartholic and uncover the truth about alien sexual and psychological manipulations. Lorgen is the author of “The Love Bite: Alien Interference in Human Love Relationships,” which defines the love bite as a kind of “psychic rape” in which the abducted victim is led to bond with a targeted love partner chosen by the alien beings. A great many tortuous emotions are often part of the mix as lovers struggle to cope with sexual and romantic feelings that are not their “own.”
Portions of an interview I conducted with Lorgen about “The Love Bite” are combined with case studies taken from her files. Strangely, some of the women who spoke to Lorgen have said that sex with an alien entity is the most pleasurable they’ve ever experienced, that the erotic thrills go way beyond what happens with a human partner. That’s one reason that overcoming the effects of alien sexual manipulation is often a very difficult process and requires an extraordinary degree of emotional strength. But Lorgen’s case studies demonstrate that liberating one’s self from this bizarre form of bondage can be done.
BELIEVERS FROM ACADEMIA ARE HEARD FROM
Podcasts such as our “Exploring the Bizarre” have been outspoken on the topic of sex with aliens.
Then there are the academics and their research. Dr. Michael Grosso, who has taught humanities and philosophy at several universities, contributes a chapter on the overt symbolism and hidden meanings of the sexual and reproductive stories that abductees tell. Grosso struggles with how such a technologically advanced civilization would need human help at all in strengthening their gene pool, but says the overarching metaphor is still one of alien sickness seeking a human healing. He also wonders if the alien hybrids being produced could be of some advantage to humanity as opposed to serving only the needs of the aliens.
Another academic professional joining the ranks of Beckley’s authors is Dr. Greg Little, who holds a doctorate in counseling and educational psychology and provides a fascinating account of demonic bedroom visitors as recorded down through the ages. He is referring, of course, to the female succubus and the male incubus, demons said to visit human victims of the opposite sex as they lay sleeping for the purpose of taking sexual pleasure as well as for the harvesting of sperm and ova.
This scenario, popularized in the religious lore of medieval Europe, so completely duplicates what alien abductees have to say about the sexual aspects of close encounters that it is impossible make any meaningful distinction between the two. There is also a direct link here to the sixth chapter of Genesis, in which angels – or the sons of God – feel compelled to come down from heaven for the purpose of having sex with human females and as a result beget a race of giants who come to be highly regarded on Earth.
PREGNANCY, GENETICS AND ANOMALOUS DNA
The notion of alien-induced pregnancy is given thorough coverage by the aforementioned Brad Steiger as well as in the gripping account of Christa Tilton, who reveals to Beckley the details of being used as a surrogate mother by the aliens. Meanwhile, William Kern offers new theories on the use of DNA and other genetics-related elements of alien abduction, focusing on the parallel nature of reptilian reproduction as we know it on Earth. To bring it all home, Kern also shares an interesting encounter of his own with a possible alien female.
Peter Khoury, whose bizarre experience with two female beings led to an amazing DNA breakthrough.
According to Swartz: “Dr. Drew’s PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) DNA profiling of the hair revealed that it came from someone who was biologically close to normal human genetics, but of an unusual racial type – a rare Chinese Mongoloid type – one of the rarest human lineages known, that lies further from the human mainstream than any other except for African pygmies and aboriginals. Even more bizarre, the mitochondrial DNA profiling revealed a rare Basque/Gaelic-type DNA in the hair root, along with the indications of the CCR5 gene deletion factor – indicating possible viral resistance against diseases such as HIV and smallpox.
“The incredible finding of the DNA study seems to show human genetic manipulation on a scale not yet accomplished by modern science. There is also the disturbing indication that the ‘humans’ that supplied the hair sample have been genetically altered to be resistant to sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV/AIDS. This is an interesting development considering the stories that have been circulated for decades about a possible human/extraterrestrial hybrid program being conducted by some unknown group.”
Admittedly, the hair comes from a verifiably human source but has many anomalous qualities nonetheless. The fact that the creature is designed to be resistant to HIV/AIDS may indicate that it is called upon to have intercourse on a frequent basis with people who are “total strangers” and whose health status in terms of sexually transmitted diseases is unknown.
SOME LIGHTER MOMENTS
“Exophiliac” means “a person who craves sex with aliens.”
But “Screwed By The Aliens” is not all darkness and gloom. As is typical for him, Beckley provides some lighter moments, such as his essay on sex with aliens in the movies, profusely illustrated with movie stills and theater posters. Sci-Fi is rife with sexual scenes and incidents that bring together humans and the not-so-human for what Beckley calls “Creature Couplings.” Another bit of fun comes from Nomar Slevik, who shares several pulp magazine covers that depict beautiful, buxom, human women being sexually preyed upon by aliens who take whatever form struck the imagination of the given artist.
In the opening pages of the book, Beckley grapples with the idea of finding a final answer to the sexual nature of some alien encounters and to his own place in the UFO scheme of things.
“This book’s title has a double meaning,” Beckley writes. “As you turn the pages, you will see that we have approached the sexual nature of UFOs, their alien occupants, and the reproduction process of the Ultra-terrestrials with an open mind. It’s easy to laugh and guffaw upon reading reports of anal probes and those who claim that they have fathered a rather large family of star children, or who have sex with reptilians just about every Saturday night. We admit to a bit of chuckling from time to time ourselves, but this is potentially a very important aspect of UFO research that for the most part has been neglected because of what some see as its offensive nature.
“But just because something is offensive or not to your liking,” he continues, “doesn’t mean that you should ignore it altogether. The phenomenon is not going to go away. So let’s study it and let the chips fall where they may (a very trite statement, but one that immediately comes to mind).
“The second meaning, for me at least, is the fact that I sometimes feel I have been ‘screwed by the aliens.’ Though I have had three UFO sightings, written and published a gazillion books and magazines, I am still at a loss as to what precisely the UFO enigma consists of. We have close encounters, bedroom invaders, abductions, government cover-ups, a cry for disclosure and everything to the far left and the far right.
“I could have gone out and gotten a regular job, but, no, ‘they’ led me to follow them, to chat them up and to devote my life to understanding their purpose. So, in a sense, yes, I have been ‘screwed by the aliens.’ But, like with sex, it has been a pleasurable experience (for the most part).”
For good or evil, at least some aliens are interested in human sexuality and reproduction and do their work without human consent or approval. Whether or not that constitutes “rape” remains a question not easily answered. But, like Beckley says, we may be in a situation where we’re being screwed both literally and metaphorically.
