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.
It is not known at what point Bruce Alan Walton took the name of “Branton,” but we do know that he did it out of fear for his life.
Branton had learned certain details about an alien/human conspiracy that predated all our conventional views of human history, the kind of details the conspirators would stop at nothing to keep secret. For those secret societies, murder was and is always an option.
In spite of how he uneasily came to feel like an easy target for the dark forces at play, Branton managed to place his version of reality on the Internet, starting in the mid-1990s. His postings came to be called the “Branton Files,” and have been publicly denounced as “high fantasy” filled with complex and convoluted conspiracy theories.
Never one to shrink back from danger himself, Timothy Green Beckley, the CEO of Global Communications and Inner Light Publications, has published some of Branton’s books, to include “The Dulce Wars: Underground Alien Bases and the Battle for Planet Earth” and “The Mojave Desert’s Mysterious Secrets,” both of which deal in great detail with Branton’s research and the life events he endured while both studying and trying to conceal himself from the strange hidden forces that seek to control and enslave “our” world. Beckley also published Branton’s “The Omega Files: Secret Nazi UFO Bases Revealed,” which describes how German engineers actually flew flying saucers shortly before the end of World War II and currently continue their depraved efforts in underground bases around the world.
One can only hope that Beckley will be spared any reprisals by the secret group for helping Branton to expose these nefarious machinations. Beckley could easily be forced into a position where he has to look over his shoulder as he walks the streets on his way to a restaurant for dinner.
An obvious consequence of Branton’s hiding himself from the fiendish denizens of hell and misery is that he is also largely hidden from us, a sympathetic group of believers in potential conspiracies. What little is known about Branton is dealt with in the early section of “The Mojave Desert’s Mysterious Secrets.” It is taken from a website he operated at one point in the 1990s.
According to the website, Branton was born in 1960 to a large family who lived near the western base of the Rocky Mountains. As he grew up, he began to distrust organized religion, which he felt had long ago been infected by a kind of Masonic “virus” that could be traced back to Lucifer, the fallen angel who became Satan.
Branton briefly recounts a sad history of being drawn into various secret, neo-Masonic, so-called “New Age” cults that manipulated their members with mind control tactics and even subjected younger adherents to perverse rituals of molestation at the cults’ deeper levels. He freely admits that being infected with this psycho-spiritual poison caused him many mental and emotional problems when he reached adulthood, as is the case with all victims of molestation.
Meanwhile, seeking escape through “legalistic” forms of Christianity only drove Branton deeper into the clutches of wickedness. He feels he was somehow “used” by the Evil One and made to do harm to others around him. But before his defection from the parasitical kingdom of darkness, he was able to learn about many of its deeper secrets and some details of its inner-workings. He came to feel it was his duty – regardless of personal risk – to expose this darkness to the light of truth and thus help others to escape the traps that almost ruined his life.
He thought of his enemies as vampires feeding on him parasitically as he tried to overcome the effects of being abducted by aliens as a child and having the usual attendant implants inserted into his body. Over time, he came to know the ultimate culprit was a race of reptilian aliens who came from beyond and within our world and who had collected a substantial number of willing followers that worked through many different secret societies, including the aforementioned Masons.
It was Branton’s faith in Jesus Christ, he said, that led him on the path of escape from Satan and his minions. He felt he had discovered a more pure and truthful understanding of Jesus that was different from what organized religion teaches. He took assurance from his faith that the sins he committed while under the thrall of the devil could ultimately be forgiven and that he would be allowed to warn the world at large, or at least a small piece of it, of the dangers he had discovered while in the grip of wicked misery that had nearly killed him.
“Something was obviously going on in his head,” Beckley writes, “that caused this transition [and led Bruce Walton to change his name to Branton]. It all culminated in the now-transformed Branton realizing he had been a ‘sleeper’ for the CIA. According to stories that have come to us in dribs and drabs, Branton stumbled on some information that he was not supposed to know. He was, supposedly, given an alternative personality which was programmed to serve his CIA/Black Projects handlers and the Bavarian/Gray collective. In this alternate or ‘double life,’ he had access to several underground bases and apparently over the course of time encountered several alien groups as well. It is even said that he had several alien implants placed at various locations in his body, not just one, as in most cases.”
While that may sound like a “perfect storm” of conspiracy theory delusion, there were even stranger claims made by Branton. He is the father, he said, of a number of hybrid children conceived when he mated with female reptilian shape-shifting aliens. He believed his hybrid children had decided to join him in resisting the Luciferian New World Order.
“Chances are,” Beckley writes, “you are a ‘fan’ of Branton or you would not have purchased this book. Branton is not for everyone! His material has limited appeal, but for those who can take all this in and digest what he has to say, Branton is considered somewhat of a ‘savior,’ particularly to those who contend that there is a global plot to ‘take us all over.’
“I want to make it perfectly clear,” Beckley continues, “that I have not heard from Branton in years, and I do not know anyone else who has either. When last spoken to, Branton had been in a roadside accident. He was riding his bike not far from his apartment when someone collided with him and took off down the highway. Those prone to conspiracy theories claim that the windows of the vehicle were tinted black, and the automobile was driven by representatives of the New World Order in the form of the dreaded MIB, or Men-In-Black. Shortly after, he was in trouble with the ‘authorities’ and ended up in the clink. Nothing to report on him since, either as Branton or as Bruce A. Walton.”
Beckley then acknowledges that the Branton Files are posted in various shapes and forms all over the Internet and had required much cleaning up in terms of spelling and punctuation before Beckley could publish some of Branton’s writing in book form.
Another item that can be found on the Internet is a letter Branton allegedly wrote to UK conspiracy theorist David Icke, who espouses the belief that Queen Elizabeth and many other high-profile authority figures are in fact reptilian aliens disguising themselves as humans.
“As you are probably aware,” Branton writes, “as a whole these reptilian hybrids often lead a double life involving dual personalities: one which leads a ‘normal’ life in the outer world and one that is deeply involved with the underground alien society on a nocturnal basis. This is especially true with ‘cocooned/hosted’ individuals and ‘hybrids/abductees.’ I believe that I am one such hybrid.”
Branton goes on to say that his genealogical line intersects with that of the British Royal Family and that the Mormon Church, or Latter Day Saints, serves as a cover for many of the old reptilian bloodlines. He conjectures that this may be why the Mormons prefer large families, in order to breed out the normal human genetic lines and replace them with reptilian/hybrid genes. There are many cases of Mormon hybrid/abductees who suffer from Multiple Personality Disorder and they are under tremendous pressure from the church, especially in Utah, not to discuss their abduction experiences.
“Underneath most major cities,” Branton continues in his letter to Icke, “particularly in the USA, there exist subterranean counterpart ‘cities’ controlled by the Masonic/Hybrid/Alien ‘elite.’ Often surface/subsurface terminals exist beneath Masonic Lodges, police stations, airports and federal buildings. Some of the major population centers were deliberately established by the Masonic/Hybrid elite of the Old and New Worlds to afford easy access to already existing underground installations, some of which are thousands of years old.
“These sub-cities also offer close access to organized crime syndicates that operate on the surface. They have developed a science of economics through which they literally nickel-and-dime us into slavery via multileveled taxation, inflation, sublimation, manipulation, regulation, fines, fees, licenses, and the entire debt-credit scam which is run by the Federal Reserve and Wall Street.
“The ‘dracs’ not only feed upon our outward society economically but also emotionally through emotional vampirism, psychically with implants, and even bio-plasmically with blood feasts. They are parasites of the worst sort, vampires and leeches on the back of humanity. They control us from the cradle to the grave via their global economic and electronic control system and will continue to do so until enough of us on the surface join together in an international resistance and literally invade the underground systems and begin to ‘kick ass and take names.’ I see no other way that we can once again gain our independence. Are we just going to sit around and be good little Nazi drones, or are we going to do something about it?”
Branton then commends Icke for his having joined the fight against the evil forces and says he prays for Icke’s success and safety in their common struggle.
I wrote a review for “FATE Magazine” of Branton’s book “The Dulce Wars” in which I tried to put his material in an easily-digestible nutshell.
“The alleged conspiracy,” I wrote, “primarily operates out of secret military installations like Area 51 in Nevada as well as, according to ‘The Dulce Wars,’ an underground base situated close to a tiny town in New Mexico called Dulce. The secrecy surrounding the buried, multileveled facility is so closely guarded that the author felt compelled to write under an assumed name, ‘Branton,’ because, as the book’s jacket says, ‘he is deathly afraid.’
“Putting aside the question of whether or not that kind of apprehension is justified, Branton still manages to provide an excellent overview of the many rumors and legends about the Dulce underground facility, presenting testimony from such diverse sources as UFO researcher John Lear (the son of the inventor of the Lear jet), Paul Bennewitz, a scientist who claimed to be in contact with aliens from the Dulce base via a special code on his computer, and Thomas Edwin Costello, who told Branton he was a security officer at the Dulce base and disappeared about a year after their interview was conducted.
“From the various experts and references available, Branton pieces together a collection of horror stories that involve, among other things, a human zoo called ‘Nightmare Alley’ where men, women and children are housed to be used as lab rats for experiments in genetics and the development of mind control techniques. Government scientists purportedly labor alongside an occupying alien force to work out the sundry ways the general population aboveground can be brought under an ultimate totalitarian control, all of which began with a 1947 treaty signed by President Harry Truman – the government obtained alien technological secrets in exchange for permitting the aliens to abduct human subjects for their diabolical research.
“The government realized too late, the story goes, that the aliens never intended to keep their part of the bargain and have instead perpetrated the monstrous misuse of perhaps many thousands of innocent victims, spawning along the way grotesque legends of vats filled with human body parts and animal/human hybrid creatures mindlessly howling in cages in the deeper levels of the Dulce installation.”
It becomes obvious why Branton would come to dedicate his life to resisting this kind of terrifying plot with its perpetrators hiding just below the surface of our planet. His hope was to convince others that the danger was real and enlist their help in fighting the evil forces that may soon enslave humankind so completely that resistance will then be futile and our fate sealed forever.
Branton’s efforts may be heroic in some sense, but are his beliefs even sane?
I concluded my review by saying, “Somewhere in this complex mix of rumor and official secrecy there must be a grain or two of truth, and Branton asks only that you read the book and then draw your own conclusions.”
Wherever Branton is now, he is likely still waging some kind of war against his evil enemies, real or imagined, while we continue to debate among ourselves about what conclusions we should draw.
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?

the years, Timothy Green Beckley, founder and CEO of the publishing house
Global Communications, has assembled a crack team of writers. One of the more
recent additions to Beckley’s stable is paranormal experiencer and researcher
Hercules Invictus, described above. True to his adopted name, Hercules is a
follower of the ancient Greek gods of Olympus, who he believes are present here
in the current age, concealing themselves behind masks more suited to our
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
and contact with the gods began in his childhood.
he says, “I am Greek and have recently begun the sixth decade of my current
sojourn on Gaia. I was born into a culture that believed in the paranormal and
I have had paranormal experiences since a very early age. The earliest
paranormal memories that I can recall were from my crib. Aside from the
continued presence of my physical family, I remember perceiving spirits, both
human and nonhuman.”

second was when the Shadow People,” Hercules continued, “who have interacted
with my father’s side of the family for generations and were very much a part
of my early childhood, invited me to return with them to their world. I would
have gone with them willingly, as they were my friends and playmates.
Fortunately, a powerful Olympian presence intervened and informed me that, had

later learned about in my mythic and folkloric studies. I felt like I belonged

childhood experiences were the beginning of a lifetime of devotion to the
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
the physical world,” he explained. “I myself have met several Olympians in the
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.”
there is no one true path or one true practice that leads to Olympian
attunement or enlightenment. Hercules instead believes in something he calls
“Olympian Pluralism,” meaning there are many routes to the ultimate truth.

enlightened as they were in many ways, embraced many practices, like animal
sacrifice, and institutions, like slavery, that we currently find extremely
PRIMAL VISION THAT GAVE HERCULES HIS NAME
As he was
growing up, Hercules’ parents would half-jokingly say that he belonged to
Olympus and would return there after he died. His dedication to all things
Olympian was cemented by a visionary experience in his childhood.

it my ‘Primal Vision,’ and can experience it instantly and vividly whenever I
close my eyes. I have shared it openly throughout my life.
glimpse the top of a mountain, shrouded in mist,” he begins. “Hovering on high,
I can discern the ruins of an ancient acropolis in the timeless twilight. I
wait alone, formless in the silence. In time, a lone figure, powerfully built
and clad in the skin of a lion, makes his way towards the abandoned temple of
‘The Highest.’ His hair and beard are still mostly brown, though streaked with
white and gray.
his right hand, he wields a knobby club studded with bronze. My consciousness
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.
Do heaven and hell actually exist as physical
locations? Can one step outside of the boundaries of religious and cultural
conditioning that for millennia have told us that the two places exist outside
the physical realm as places to be found only in spiritual dimensions that are
unreachable by the living?
Timothy Green Beckley and his stable of venerable writers and researchers
invite you to consider the possibility that the territories we think of as the
afterlife – the dichotomies of heaven and hell – are in fact physical places
concealed throughout eternity in the bowels of the Earth.
Beckley’s introduction pulls no punches when he
writes: “Frankly, the text books – the truth according to our ‘experts’ – are
all wrong! If you think life exists only on the surface of the planet, you have
been listening to the ‘party line’ way too long, for there are those who see
the Earth as being multilayered, and that what goes on ‘above’ definitely goes
on ‘below’ – and maybe more so to the extreme.”
NOTION OF HELL BENEATH US
“One case for an Inner Earth hell,” Beckley
continues, “is found in the wickedly profound tales of one Richard S. Shaver,
who claimed he knew about a race of underground beings he called the Dero. For eons,
the Dero had been polluting humankind’s minds with murderous thoughts and were
responsible for plagues, ‘natural’ disasters, wars and all manner of evil
deeds. They inflicted these woes upon humankind through the use of ancient
laser-like ‘stem rays’ shot forth from their cavernous dwellings, hidden out of
sight below the very bottoms of our feet.”
According to Beckley, Shaver said there was a real
hell and it was located not in some mythical place but down below, right
beneath us, toward the center of the earth. Like it or not, fundamentalist
“scholars” tell us quite clearly that hell is for real and located inside the
earth, making reference to Ephesians 4:9, which says of Jesus: “Now in saying
that He ascended, what does it mean but that He also descended into the LOWER
PARTS OF THE EARTH?” The reports of some who have experienced a Near Death
Experience say they were thrown into the fiery lakes of hell and that “this
place seems to be UNDERGROUND or WITHIN THE EARTH in some way.”
Shaver’s belief in
a literal, physical hell was the result of demonic voices in his head.
“From as far
back as I can remember,” Shaver writes, “there were the voices. They weren’t
there all the time, but they were there enough that they played an important
role in my early childhood development. At first I thought that everyone heard
the voices. I thought there was nothing strange about being awakened at night
with the hideous screams of someone being torn limb from limb ringing in your
ears. I thought it was normal to hear the maniacal laughing of an invisible
someone who thought it was a fine joke to see an innocent soul run down by a
speeding train. I thought everyone knew that the voices were with us all of the
time, watching, waiting, and scheming for our bloody deaths. But I was wrong.
It seemed that I was the only one who heard the voices. I learned quickly not
to talk about them, lest I be thought a maniac.”
gradually faded from his life and became only a distant childhood memory. They
returned, however, when he was an adult working at an auto plant in Detroit. He
began to hear them through the noise of the machinery, conversing among
themselves about gleefully tearing the skin off a woman as she screamed for
mercy or causing cars and planes to crash.
He concluded he
must be quite insane, quit his job, began to live a hobo life and took to
alcohol to try to block the voices out. He found himself confined to a prison
or mental hospital – he seems unclear on which – and came to believe the voices
came from people living in caves beneath the institution where he was
incarcerated, tormenting him and the other prisoners with strange technologies
he compared to some kind of x-rays.
“My problems, I realized, did not stem from some kind of mental impairment. I
wasn’t crazy in the traditional sense, even though at times I felt like I was
being driven mad by the hateful rays that were being beamed at me by the people
below. No, I was sane in an insane world.
“I have often
wondered,” he continues, “how many people who have been institutionalized
because they were diagnosed as crazy were in fact victims, such as myself, of
the damnable rays. Did they themselves think that they were insane because of
the voices they heard in their heads and voluntarily committed themselves? Even
today I still wonder if most forms of mental illness are not actually insidious
attacks from the world below.”
perhaps as a method of coping with the voices, Shaver began to develop a myth
or a narrative to explain them. He writes about the coming of the “Titans,” a
humanoid race that migrated from their home planet and settled on Earth long
before mankind was created. The Titans created the first civilization on the
Earth, a social and scientific utopia that has never been equaled since.
But there came a
time when the sun began to flare in dangerous ways and Earth was flooded with
world-destroying radiation. The Titans had no choice but to flee, but some of
them stubbornly refused to abandon their homes and instead moved underground or
beneath the seas. They took their great machines and scientific knowledge with
them, in hopes of someday finding a solution to the solar radiation and returning
to live on the Earth’s surface.
But even deep
within the Earth, the solar radiation continued to affect them. They tried
moving deeper into the planet, but to no avail.
“Those who did
not die immediately,” Shaver writes, “suffered genetic damage that was
passed down from generation to generation. Eventually, this once mighty race
was reduced to mutated horrors, retarded in intelligence and social structure.
Worse still, these monstrosities still had access to the self-repairing
machines of their ancestors. But instead of using them for their intended
purposes, they used them to satisfy their sick, twisted desires. These are the
demons of ancient myth and folklore.”
They are the masters of a very REAL
IS THE CENTER OF THE EARTH TEEMING WITH LIFE?
Of course, stories about various locales inside
the Earth are nothing new. Unlike Shaver’s tales of the demonic Dero who
inhabit a cavern world, the inhabitants of the actual Hollow Earth, located at
the planet’s core, are also said to be peaceful in countenance, but wish to
keep their existence a secret for fear that the surface “warmongers” will want
A few years ago, when Beckley reprinted the long out-of-print edition and expanded upon the original version of “The Smoky God And Other Inner Earth Mysteries,” he knew going in that there isn’t anything new under the sun – even the central sun said to light the interior of our planet!
The story of the Smoky God is dramatic and tells
of a fantastic journey by father and son to a place inhabited by gentle giants.
In contrast to the rather admittedly demented Richard Shaver, who made no
effort to conceal his hearing voices inside his head, voices that drove him
nearly insane (he is said to have been locked in an insane asylum for several
years), most of the tales of a Hollow Earth are rather benign. As a further
example, one need only examine the works of Tibetan mystic T. Lobsang Rampa,
who called the paradise located in the Inner Earth “Agharta.” Beckley’s Global
Communications publishing house has republished many of Rampa’s books in
excellent new editions.
THE DARKNESS OF
THE HUMAN ELEMENT
But the story of the Inner Earth does not always involve
supernatural entities like demons or highly-evolved, benevolent, heavenly
personages. There is also plenty of everyday human evil thrown into the mix.
Take the story of Admiral Byrd, for instance, about whom many questions remain.
Admiral Richard E. Byrd is thought of as an iconic American
hero. But what was he concealing from the public, and why did he swear to
secrecy a handpicked group from among the crews that accompanied him on his
In 1938, the Nazis asked Byrd to join their expedition to
the North Pole, which the admiral quite naturally declined. The Nazis went
there without him, seeking to make contact with a hidden race of supermen by
finding a doorway into the Hollow Earth that was believed to exist in the icy
northern wastelands. Did the Nazis succeed in making that contact? Did they get
alien assistance in building their own disc-shaped aircraft?
Ace Fortean advocate
Tim Cridland presents not only photographic proof of the existence of
massive holes at the North and South Poles, which are usually covered with a
thick cloud layer, thus disguising the entrances there, butalso
explores the close connection between a member of the Byrd family and the
assassination of a beloved president.
The admiral’s cousin, David Harold Byrd, was an oil-rich
financier from Texas who funded some of Admiral Byrd’s earlier polar
expeditions. By virtue of his wealth, Harold Byrd was part of the inner circle
of the rich and powerful in Texas, which included Lyndon Johnson and John
Connelly. Did the secret cabal somehow have a hand in the assassination of John
F. Kennedy? Was the conspiracy of murder birthed in a Houston hotel room?
In any case, to many in the UFO and conspiracy theory
communities, Admiral Richard E. Byrd is not merely some benign fatherly figure
smiling at us from the pages of 20th century history. While Byrd is commonly thought of as a national hero and a courageous
explorer of the forbidding wastelands of the Polar Regions, those who look a
little deeper soon discover a disturbing darkness and subterfuge that entangles
the American icon in many a wicked web.
MICAH HANKS ON THE
From the darkness surrounding Byrd, his cousin and the JFK
assassination, we move along to what may be even darker terrain, as described
by author and podcaster Micah Hanks.
“It’s one of the most famous conspiracies,” Hanks writes,
“associated with the end of the Second World War: that a group of Nazis escaped
to Antarctica, where they had a secret base established to aid in the
furtherance of their top secret flying saucer development program. Such tales
have been the stuff of legends for decades now, and the persistence of rumors
like these offer an alternative to popular theories about alien visitors that
remain a hallmark of modern UFO lore.”
Hanks refers to a 2006 discovery by Ohio State University scientists who claim to have located some kind of “gravitational anomaly” located below Wilkes Land, Antarctica. It was later speculated in the tabloid press that the anomaly could be the long-sought “secret Nazi UFO base” in question.
There is some legitimacy to this idea, according to Hanks,
stemming from the fact that the Nazis did mount an expedition to the South Pole
in 1938-39, though there is no proof they attempted to establish a more
permanent stronghold there. Ironically, according to Hanks, the idea of Nazi
UFOs in Antarctica has less to do with anything the Nazis actually did than
with what Admiral Byrd himself said about it.
Hanks quotes from a 1947 interview with Byrd, published in a
Chilean newspaper, thusly: “The admiral stated that he didn’t want to frighten
anyone unduly but that it was a bitter reality that, in case of a new war, the
continental United States would be attacked by flying objects which could fly
from pole to pole at incredible speeds.”
“As one can see,” Hanks continues, “such wording easily
lends itself to the idea of a connection between the Nazi UFO mythos and
something going on at the South Pole.”
HOLLOW EARTH AS CLASSIC LITERATURE
Jules Verne’s 1864 novel, “Journey To The Center Of The Earth,” is often credited with being the first book to deal with the concept that the Earth could possibly be hollow. But, in actuality, Verne’s classic tome was written about a hundred years after the release of a book that purports to be a real account of the author’s exploits in the underworld.
As far as is known, Niels Klim’s “Underground Travels,” originally published in Danish as “Nicolai Klimii Iter Subterraneum” (1741), is a purportedly real journey as described by the author, Ludvig Holberg. It is being published here in English by Global Communications without tampering or unneeded editing. The complete title in English is: “NIELS KLIM’S JOURNEY UNDER THE GROUND, BEING A NARRATIVE OF HIS WONDERFUL DESCENT TO THE SUBTERRANEAN LANDS, TOGETHER WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE SENSIBLE ANIMALS AND TREES.“
Ludvig Holberg is the most eminent writer among the Danes in
the 18th century. University-educated and well-traveled, he wrote
treatises on law as well as histories, satires and comedies.
“There are many persons of both sexes in my country who
believe in fairies and supernatural beings and who are ready to swear that that
they have been conveyed by spirits to hills and mountain caves,” writes
The work starts with a foreword that assures
the reader that everything in the story is a real account of the title
character’s exploits in the Underworld. The story begins in the Norwegian
harbor town of Bergen in 1664, after Klim returns from Copenhagen, where he has studied philosophy and theology at the University of
Copenhagen and graduated magna cum laude. His curiosity drives him to investigate a strange cave in
a mountainside above the town, which sends out regular gusts of warm air. He
ends up falling down the hole, and after a while he finds himself floating in
Klim, the hero of the tale, is said to be transported to the
world underground, where he meets with some “surprising” adventures. Many
strange creatures inhabit this new world. Trees are introduced that have the
power of speech and musical instruments discuss questions of philosophy and
This introduction is followed by a short section called
“Apologetic Preface,” in which descendants of Klim the Great add a prefix to
the new edition where they swear to the authenticity of the story and seek to
amend the bad reputation with which the publisher has unfairly been burdened by
readers who believe the book is all fantasy.
Whether or not one lends total belief to the story told by
Holberg and Klim, it is in any case a fascinating tale of adventure, redemption
and coming to know one’s true self in a world previously unknown to mortal man.
“Our Hollow Earth” also includes a chapter by Hercules
Invictus, a frequent contributor among Beckley’s writers. Hercules writes about
the physical heaven and hell as described in Greek mythology. The Rivers of the
Underworld, also an element of Greek mythology, are neatly summarized by Deanna
Jaxine Stinson. Deanna’s husband, Paul Dale Roberts, recounts the story of a
cave in Guatemala reputed to be an entrance to a Hollow World where the UFO
occupants are said to reside. Scott Corrales covers similar territory in the
wider exploration of Latin American entrances to the Underworld.
Beliefs in and about the Hollow Earth span the centuries and cut across all cultural and metaphysical lines. If you’re new to the subject, “Our Hollow Earth: An Inner World Paradise, Or A Gateway to Hell?” will provide the introductory overview that will start your education along the right path. If you’re a longtime student of the strange, you owe it to yourself to read the contributions from writers of the present time along with the resurrection of Ludvig Holberg’s breezily fascinating 18th century adventure story, which you likely are unaware of.
Just what IS down there? Is there an unseen enemy beneath
our feet, threatening to conquer us with mind-blowing wicked technology when
they feel the time is right? Or is there some gentle race of Inner Earth
inhabitants who guard their secret paradise from us savages here on the
The complete duality of the Hollow Earth mystery inevitably gives one pause, does it not?
In his tireless quest to discover and reveal the
truth underlying the UFO phenomenon, Timothy Green Beckley has turned over yet
another stone. This time, Beckley has assembled his usual suspects (which, in
the interest of full disclosure, includes myself) and put together a book on
hidden alien bases from which the UFO occupants may be operating.
“They are said to walk among us,” Beckley writes.
“And, if this is true, surely they have to be living nearby, even if in
Beckley explains that he has been collecting information
on underground and undersea alien bases for decades, trashing some reports and
reserving judgment on some others that seem more likely to be plausible. “Alien
Strongholds on Earth” is an attempt to present the more believable stories that
have come to Beckley’s attention.
One theme Beckley strenuously drives home is the
possibly localized nature of these hidden bases.

Beckley has divided
the book into seven sections, with each section covering a different aspect of
hidden alien bases as researched by his team of authors. In one section,

popular by the trio Peter, Paul and Mary, cases involving mountain bases are

way of example, contributes a chapter to this section on the Superstition
Mountains of Arizona, a region which he feels has a sinister power all is own.
According to Beckley: “One place you should

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.

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.”
