THE HORRIFIC TRUTH ABOUT ALIEN VAMPIRES AND THEIR LUST FOR BLOOD

By Sean Casteel

alien blood lust cover finalWHY did the gods of old demand blood sacrifices? Of what use to them was the spilled blood of the innocent? And if we examine the more modern state of affairs in Ufology and the paranormal, specifically with regard to the chupacabras/”goat sucker” invasion that took place in the 1990s in Mexico, Puerto Rico and South America, can we truthfully say that this lust for blood on the part of the Ultra-Terrestrials has ever ceased?

These are some of the many questions asked in the newest offering from Inner Light/Global Communications, an ample, weighty tome called “Alien Blood Lust: Are There Vampires In Space?” Once again, publisher, editor and author Timothy Green Beckley takes aim at the warm and fuzzy approach to the aliens and makes his case for a negative, even monstrous, interpretation.

            The book opens with Beckley’s characteristic frankness.

Are there real vampires living in outer space? Artist Carol Ann Rodriguez’s depiction here indicates that there are!

“Blood is to some Ultra-Terrestrials what water is to mankind,” he begins. “The flesh and blood of humans – and animals, for that matter, when nothing ‘more upscale’ makes itself available – could be the snack of the gods. Is there a rationale for such a bizarre statement?

            “I would say so,” Beckley continues, “and it is a concept that is after all supported by the evidence presented by our primary author, Scott Corrales, as well as our team of seasoned researchers, in what is certain to be a provocative volume.

            “Blood may be necessary for at least some Ultra-Terrestrials to drink or ingest through transfusion in order for them to survive while ‘adrift’ in our physical world,” Beckley added.  “They may be trespassers from a parallel dimension or alternative universe where blood in its various forms has become a requisite to survival while ‘stationed’ here, in effect making them Vampires from Space.”

SOME CASE HISTORIES OF ALIEN BLOOD LUST

in one of the most horrific encounters of its type, a bloodmobile was chased by a UFO and claw-like appendages attempted to draw the vehicle into the off-world object.

As reported by Beckley in the new book, on the night of March 5th, 1967, two workers in the local Red Cross Bloodmobile in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, were chased by something strange in the sky. Their van was loaded with flesh blood and, despite the fact that they were speeding to get to the hospital with their supply of human plasma, a UFO kept pace and lowered two claw-like projections on either side of their emergency vehicle as if to capture it in its prongs and lift the bloodmobile into the night sky.

On Long Island, New York, a well-respected talk show host was taken to a large “meeting hall” which fronted for the secret headquarters of a strange group of alien “androids” who called themselves “The Council of Ten Men.”

“In the recesses of the building was a hidden laboratory in which what appeared to be several corpses were laid out on examination tables. Next to the ‘corpses’ were rows of test tubes and bottles filled with blood,” the talk show host recounted. “Each bottle was labeled with names, such as ‘CHARLES’ and ‘SUSAN.’ The Ten handled some of the bottles and sampled their contents orally and without facial expressions.”

The whole scene sickened the witness, and she was greatly disturbed by the experience.

THE BLOOD SUCKERS ALMOST LAY WASTE A WHOLE VILLAGE

DANIEL REBISSO GIESESÊ

Dr. Daniel Rebisso Giese.

In a section of “Alien Blood Lust” devoted to the 1977 siege in a Brazilian island town called “Colares,” one reads the account of Dr. Daniel Rebisso Giese. Giese spent five years researching the wave that had locals claiming that, not only had they seen terrifying lights in sky, they had also been attacked by a vampire-like creature they called a “chupa-chupa,” which translates from the original Portuguese as “suck-suck.”

In 1977, strange happenings began to cause unrest in several villages and settlements in Northern Brazil. Unknown lights and unknown creatures were roaming the skies over the Bay of Sao Marcos, in the State of Maranhao, spreading terror throughout the region known as the Lowland Belt.

The people of the backwoods – called Caboclos, the local word for half-breed Brazilian – believed that beings from another world were at large in the area, searching for human blood. The victims were struck by a mysterious light which could penetrate anything and let none escape.

The situation was taken seriously by the Brazilian Air Force, who sent teams into the region and secretly documented everything. They heard the same testimony from hundreds of people, all of whom talked about a “vampire light,” or “a luz chupa-chupa.”

Along the Amazon, a craft nicknamed “Chupa-chupa” (suck-suck) caused panic as it came up out of the ocean to strike local residents with a beam of light, out of which came an alien device which caused puncture wounds on the victims’ skin and removed a great deal of blood from their body.

There are many testimonials in “Alien Blood Lust” of a dramatic nature that show the unparalleled horror the witnesses experienced, such as in the case of Ana Célia Oliveira, a teacher in Colares who was 6 years old at the time:

“I will never forget,” she said. “People and animals were attacked. There was nothing to eat. We were terribly lacking in food. Nobody was fishing. People did not want to go outside to harvest.

“Everyone was trying to move in large groups,” she continued. “Nobody wanted to be alone. All Colares had stopped. At 6 pm it was dark and we went to bed. Groups as numerous as 50 or 60 women and children gathered in a house. The men remained awake all night. They lit fires and tapped pots and pans to make noise to frighten and scare away UFOs. People started shooting in the sky to scare them away.

“We had just heard from our fathers and other men what was happening. We did not know why we went to other people’s houses at night to sleep. At night, people saw many UFOs flying in formation.

“Once I heard a man shoot and I ran to the door and opened it,” Oliveira recalled, “and saw many UFOs in formation. And suddenly they went in all directions. The objects moved very fast. People started shooting in the sky to frighten them. One came over the village, just 15 meters high.”

THE NIGHTMARE SIEGE BEGINS

Extraterrestrial Vampires in the Amazon.

Giese’s book, “Extraterrestrial Vampires in the Amazon,” constitutes impressive evidence furnished by doctors, journalists, soldiers and rural Caboclos all describing unbelievable facts that challenge the limits of our “reality.”

It was July of 1977, a sunny day after the long rainy season of winter, in the little Brazilian town of Viseu. Normally the families would be seated outdoors in the evening, with the children running to and fro. But on this night strange lights were seen moving across the sky, lights of various colors, not ordinary lights or aircraft lights. These lights were completely silent. Some of the more religious-minded locals thought the lights were “signs of the end times.”

The next morning, people arriving from nearby villages had news of a powerful sort of light which, coming down from space, could paralyze you and “suck out” your blood and your energy.

These reports of the “Vampire Light” came to the ears of the man in charge of the local police post, Sergeant Sabino do Nascimento Costa, who considered them of no importance. The mayor of the town, Carlos Cardoso Santos, laughed and gave his verdict that it was all “just fantasy.” Even the priest, who was alarmed that his parishioners were talking about prayers to ward off the evil force, took the same view, calling the reports “the wild imagination of the rural folk. Nothing to it!”

However, the next day, there arrived in town a fisherman and his son. According to the son: “About ten days ago, we were fishing near Ilha Nova. Suddenly we saw a star moving. Its brightness was very strong, stronger than the rest of the stars, and it seemed to be flashing and it came straight toward us. We remembered what we’d heard about the ‘chupa-chupa,’ so we paddled for the river bank and hid in the bushes. We just managed to escape being touched by the light. It was hanging a few meters above our boat and sweeping the whole area with a sort of searchlight, as though probing, seeking.”

In the end the light or object flew off towards the farm of a neighbor.

Another local resident was not so lucky. A hunter was sitting quietly in the thick bushes, awaiting game. An animal appeared, but something in the sky threw down a beam of light onto the animal and made off with it. Meanwhile, the hunter himself could not escape the light, which he felt bearing down on his body and sucking the strength out of him. He was sure he was going to die.

The flying object was shaped like a cylinder and he could hear voices coming from it, speaking in an unknown language. The object departed, but left him powerless. He seemed to have absolutely no strength whatsoever and was hospitalized.

A cylindrical craft was also seen by a woman schoolteacher, who said it shone its beam down on her house. She reported the incident to the same scoffing police sergeant mentioned earlier. He felt that given such testimony from an educated woman, he could not simply ignore her report.

THE FEAR SPREADS AND THE MEDIA RESPONDSoliberalarticle1

“By now, nobody in the whole area was venturing out at night,” writes Dr. Giese, “no children were playing out of doors, and fishermen were wary about putting out in their boats.”

The phenomenon began spreading to nearby villages and once again the local authorities there at first refused to believe the reports.

“In due course,” Giese writes, “the wave of cases of ‘vampire lights’ over the region turned out to be the greatest ‘UFO Wave’ ever recorded in the whole of Brazil.”

Giese then quotes an area newspaper: “The appearance of an Unidentified Flying Object in the skies over Pinheiro is producing suspense and panic among the population and has stimulated imaginations to such an extent that some are even saying that the object approaches people and then stuns them with a beam of light and extracts their blood. The presence of the craft has been established as certain. There is general terror throughout the region, folk fear to go outside at night, because of rumors that, when the UFO comes down near the ground, it emits an extremely hot luminous beam that burns people’s skins.”

From the mass of reports at the time, it was evident that the UFO’s beam would first immobilize the victim. Then he would feel intense heat and would collapse, some fainting totally. In general, small rural settlements were mainly targeted, and the victims were single, isolated persons or small groups of people.

The panic continued into October-December of 1977, again with no one venturing forth alone at night “for fear of the blood-seeking ‘vampires.’” By that time, some of the rumors and popular theories had grown to be more fantastic than ever. It was even believed by some that the UFOs were part of a secret Japanese plan for contraband trafficking in human blood. There was of course the belief that the UFOs came from other planets and there was the occasional unsubstantiated rumor that a ship had crashed in North East Brazil. But in all his years researching the area, Giese never found any proof for the crash-related rumors.

chupachupa

The Chupa-Chupa lights frightened people so much that men would stay awake all night. They lit bonfires and banged on pots and pans to make noise to scare the UFOs away.

Local men began to band together into patrols at night equipped with firearms as well as fireworks to frighten off the intruders. With the 1977 Ceremony of the Procession of Our Lady of Nazareth, held the second Sunday in October in the city of Belem (the Portuguese form of the name Bethlehem), there came many folks from throughout the Amazon region to take part, bringing with them fresh stories about the chupa-chupa. Many of the stories were now perhaps a bit exaggerated, but people were talking about “vampires that came down sucking human blood, and especially from women’s breasts.”

As the tales ran like wildfire through Belem, women were all growing hysterical; immediate action was needed. And the authorities indeed took action.

Instantly, the local newspapers, which up until then had been reporting very objectively everything about the sightings of the chupa-chupa and their victims, changed their tune overnight. While one newspaper had proclaimed in November that “The Interplanetary Vampire Only Likes Women,” the very next day that same paper ran the headline “The Chupa-Chupa Is Mere Fantasy.”

This section of “Alien Blood Lust” also includes Q and A’s with Giese and a psychiatrist named Dr. Wellaide Carvalho, who came to believe the strange stories told by the locals and refused to be cowed by the Brazilian military into calling the victims crazy. There is also an interview with a Brazilian military official named Colonel Uyrange Hollanda, who similarly would not discount some of the bizarre testimonies he heard while investigating the area where the suck-suck events had occurred. After publicly stating his sympathy for the victims in A.J. Gevaerd’s “UFO Magazine,” Hollanda died from an apparent suicide which many in Ufology feel is, at the least, very suspicious.

The story of the 1977 chupacabras wave is a tale of intense bewilderment, frustration in not knowing what was going on, and, in some cases, a sense of complete panic.  Over time, the chupa invasion faded away, but it left its horrifying scars, both physical and emotional, in its wake. 

DOWN IN THE TRENCHES WITH THE CHUPACABRAS PHENOMENON

BLOOD SCOTT CORRALES 1

Longtime investigator of UFO incidents in Hispanic communities worldwide, Scott Corrales has kept a journal detailing dozens of encounters with the bloodthirsty Chupacabras creatures.

But all of the above is mere prelude to the meat of the book, the reprinting of the book “The Chupacabras Diaries,” by well-known researcher Scott Corrales. “Alien Blood Lust” also includes a sampling of other related material Corrales has written in the years since.

This is a thorough and scholarly examination of the chupacabras phenomenon that wreaked havoc throughout the countryside in Mexico, Puerto Rico and South America.

Corrales’ sections are intelligently written by the longtime veteran researcher of Ufology and the paranormal who is also a gifted translator by profession. Corrales’ language expertise helps to make heartfelt connections with the largely Hispanic population who have suffered the goat-sucker and who still seek answers to the nightmarish mystery. Corrales spoke firsthand to witnesses and visited some of the locales where the events had taken place.

Corrales’ work features several transcripts of conversations on talk radio in which real people grapple with the terror and strangeness of the chupacabras. It demonstrates that the phenomenon is not just a hoax but something real people have been forced to deal with on an ongoing basis.

Corrales teaches many of us a new word: “Exsanguinated,” meaning drained of blood, made bloodless. He also points out that the amount of blood consumed by a chupacabras would be many times its own body weight, so perhaps the creature is collecting blood for someone besides just itself?

THE MONSTER THAT REFUSES TO SIMPLY GO AWAY

“If reality resembled the world of fiction more closely,” Corrales writes in “Alien Blood Lust,” “monsters would be put down with the finality of Lieutenant Ripley purging the hideous alien xenomorph out of an airlock, consigning it to the vacuum of space. The sense of finality and justice delivered by a wooden stake through the undead heart of a cinematic vampire imparts catharsis, but we find none of that with the monsters and visions that persistently manifest themselves in our reality. After eighteen months of depredations in West Virginia in 1966-67, the Mothman disappeared into legend and the uneasy dreams of those whose encounters changed the course of their lives. Hunters and scientists emerge from forays after the elusive Bigfoot with little to show for their efforts, save the tell-tale strands of hair and plaster casts that have become a trademark of their avocation.

The Chupacabras have caused terror far and wide.

“The same can be said for the Chupacabras,” Corrales continues. “The protean creature manifested for the first time in Puerto Rico in the mid-90s, followed by a rash of sightings throughout Latin America, each time described a little differently than before. Media burnout and the trivialization of the subject by popular culture – the cascade of t-shirts and bumper stickers, rap and ranchero songs, cheap plastic memorabilia sold in marketplaces – resulted in a loss of interest in the creature’s exploits in Brazil and Chile later that decade.

“But the Chupacabras keeps coming back like a prize fighter, unmindful of the fatuous pronouncements of skeptics, as well as efforts at fitting it into the UFO totem-pole by researchers bent on seducing the media once more, their prize a conference invitation or the lure of a television show. The demon is triumphant.”

The Puerto Rican media approached the subject of the paranormal predator again in 2012, when reporter Yaritza Santiago wrote an article for El Nuevo Dia about the entity’s return to the scene, this time in the island municipality of Vieques: “A strange wild animal prowls the verdant fields and communities of this island municipality. This is the only way to explain the discovery of dead horses, hens and rabbits in situations that terrified Viequenses have ascribed to a panther that allegedly escaped from an American tourist’s possession. Others say it is a jaguar; still others speak of the return of the Chupacabras, whose existence they do not question for a second.”

THE BATTLEFIELD OF THE KILLER WHO OPERATED AT LEISURE

Thirty chickens met an untimely demise on the property of José Martínez and his wife Jeami in Barrio La Hueca. The couple had gone off to a birthday party on the previous night, returning home an hour before midnight. They went to bed and Mr. Martínez woke up at half past five in the morning to feed the family animals. In the cold glow of his flashlight, José was startled to find the roosters dead in their cages, with deep puncture marks on their backs, drained of blood. The couple told reporters that they had not heard any abnormal sounds in the night.

José, 26, and Jeami, 21, described the massacre of their animals as “a battlefield” where the unknown assailant had operated at leisure. Jeami remained convinced that the perpetrator was none other than the mysterious being that spread fear throughout Puerto Rico during her childhood. “It wasn’t a dog. I think it could be the Chupacabras.”

Reporters from the local media who investigated the incident were told of a “radar image” of a strange creature taken by a U.S. Marines radar, and observed that the fear among the island’s population was quite real.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Physical descriptions of the chupacabra vary. Some reports describe a creature with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail.

Corrales writes further that, “On the main island of Puerto Rico, news organizations were covering the ‘gargoyle’ that supposedly haunted the vicinity of Guánica, the city with the magnificent bay on the Caribbean Sea. This nightmarish vision had attacked not only animals, but allegedly humans as well. Its patterns of attack resembled those of the Chupacabras, but not exactly the same entity. ‘Some identified it with the Chupacabras, but others believe it was a different creature, a sly and sinister one, using the ruins and tunnels of the [abandoned] Central Guánica sugar mill as its lair,’ wrote Pedro Bosque in an article for El Nuevo Dia. It was in this warren of half-flooded, weed-choked tunnels that the skeletons of its victims were reportedly found.

According to Corrales, “Despite its predilection for lovely Guánica, the ‘gargoyle’ had reportedly been seen in Lajas and San Germán, communities in southwestern Puerto Rico that acquired notoriety in the late ‘80s and throughout the 1990s as paranormal hotspots. And unlike those relatively distant years, eyewitnesses were reluctant to share their names with the media, particularly when it came to the attacks on humans.

“These incidents were discussed in hushed tones. One witness interviewed by the press claimed seeing injuries on a man’s belly, produced by an ‘animal with large wings’ whose claws had torn at his flesh ‘to the extent that his fat could be seen.’ The unnamed witness spoke soberly of seeing the victim lift his t-shirt to display the wounds received in his own backyard.

“Police officer Miguel Negrón, on the other hand, admitted to hearing ‘a loud sound of flapping wings’ while patrolling the abandoned sugar mill. Was an unknown avian taking off from the rusted cranes of the old mill? According to the officer, the ‘gargoyle’ had been described by some as a very large bird reeking of sulfur or rot (hydrogen sulfide?), feeding on live animals such as dogs, cats and horses by exsanguination.”

OTHER VOICES ARE HEARD

Alien Blood Lust” also includes a contribution by a writer named Hercules Invictus, who interestingly enough still believes in the Greek pantheon of gods, to include Zeus and all his fellows. With his thorough command of Greek mythology, Hercules gives us a lesson on how blood and blood sacrifice figure in the stories of the denizens of Mount Olympus. Is human blood the true nectar and ambrosia of the gods?

ufo-church dracular

Newly discovered evidence exists in the form of a 16th century oil painting, indicating that the real Dracula might have been an alien. One can see a decidedly disc-shaped device hovering above the home of Vlad the Impaler.

Nigel Watson, a British writer on paranormal topics, discusses how the Dracula legend may offer hints of a UFO connection. One has most likely heard of Vlad the Impaler, said to be the historical template for the later Bram Stoker character. Watson explains that there exists in a church in Romania (in the town that was Vlad’s old stomping grounds) a 16th century oil painting of dear old Vlad with what looks like a UFO – a strange disc-like craft emitting smoke – hovering over him in the background. It’s not exactly “proof,” but it does help to illustrate the notion of a flying saucer/vampire relationship rather neatly.

And finally there is a chapter by Tim R. Swartz, the veteran of much psychic warfare, who gives an overview of the history of cattle mutilation in the US, a phenomenon that peaked in 1975 but continues to linger in sporadic incidents. Swartz also writes about cases of human mutilations that have been covered-up by military and government officials. One such case is the 1956 incident at the White Sands Missile Range, an army base in southern New Mexico, where a soldier’s body was found mutilated with surgical skill and with no traces of blood left behind. The official verdict was that the soldier had died in the desert of “exposure.”

WHY THE BLOOD SUCKER PHENOMENON IS EVIL

While there are those that might characterize the blood lust phenomenon as repellent but basically “morally neutral,” we should give some thought to the Biblical Book of Leviticus, chapter 17, which unequivocally declares:

13 And if any Israelite or foreigner living among them hunts down a wild animal or bird that may be eaten, he must drain its blood and cover it with dirt. 14 For the life of all flesh is its blood. Therefore I have told the Israelites, ‘You must not eat the blood of any creature,’ because the life of every creature is its blood; whoever eats it must be cut off. 15 And any person, whether native or foreigner, who eats anything found dead or mauled by wild beasts must wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he will be unclean until evening; then he will be clean.…

The verses are clearly saying that eating the blood of an animal is an unclean thing and reason for expulsion from the community. Since there is this Biblical law unmistakably against consuming blood, one would think the chupacabras is something demonic, since it openly defies the laws of God and consumes blood as a nourishment.

Blood has always been part of the hidden agenda of the Ultra-Terrestrials, from the days of “ancient astronauts” – and their apparent demand for human sacrifices – to the animal mutilations of today.

“We think nothing of butchering a steer,” Beckley writes, “in order to get its most succulent cuts, so who is to say the aliens don’t see us in the same light, figuring us for a welcome meal on their journey through the cosmos?”

EXPLORING THE NATIVE AMERICAN UFO—STAR PEOPLE CONNECTION

With A Bit Of Ritualistic Indian Magic Revealed!

By Sean Casteel

*** Read about some of the fascinating petroglyphs and pictographs of the earliest Native Americans, who responded in reverence and awe to the alien presence that created them. The testimony of Native Americans of our own time is equally dramatic and grounded in mysteries still unsolved.

*** There are many divided opinions among the Native Americans of the present day as to how their people were created. Not all believe in the conventional wisdom as taught by anthropologists. Some believe in the UFO-related origin stories handed down for centuries and see those beliefs made all the more real by continued contact experiences happening in the modern world.

*** Once you have made the leap of faith and accept that the alien presence for Native Americans is real, how do you communicate with these otherworldly “gods”? Learn some of the chants, songs and ceremonies used since ancient times to placate and entreat the great spirits.

The American Indian UFO-Starseed Connection

It is generally acknowledged that the myths and legends of nearly all Native Americans have a rich and varied history of an interaction with the “Sky People” or “Star People” in common with one another. In a book recently reissued by Timothy Green Beckley’s Inner Light/Global Communications, entitled “The American Indian UFO-Starseed Connection,” this idea is thoroughly explored by a number of well-known authors, to include the late Brad Steiger, whose numerous books on paranormal subjects have sold many millions of copies.

UFO BELIEVERS AND UNBELIEVERS

One of the Native American sources Steiger spoke to directly for his chapter told him, “I doubt very much if you will find another Indian who will tell you this, but I don’t believe there is any doubt whatsoever that there are Indian people on the face of the Earth who did not originate on this planet.”

But there exists a schism among Native Americans about their true origin. Some of the Hopi, for example, believe in a tribal descent from the UFO occupants and an ancient culture while others favor the more orthodox, anthropological description of their lineage. Meanwhile, a collection of predictions labeled the “Hopi Prophecies” are believed to predict not only that exact schism of spiritual faith but the coming of the UFOs as well in what sounds like a Native American version of the coming apocalypse.native american indian and ufo

A petroglyph in Arizona is said to show a dome-shaped flying saucer with an arrow on top that represents travel through space. The Hopi maiden on the dome shape represents “purity,” delivering an ominous warning about the future “Purification Day.”

“Those Hopi who survive Purification Day will be taken to other planets,” the Native American source told Steiger. “We, the faithful Hopi, have seen the ships and know they are true. We have watched nearly all our brethren lose faith in the original teachings and go off on their own course.”

ANCIENT ROCK ART FROM THE STARS TELLS THE TALE

There is still much to learn, however, from the faithful of ancient days. Steiger runs through a catalog of petroglyphs, or stone carvings, and pictographs, or stone paintings. Thirty miles northeast of Price, Utah, is the beginning of one of the most unusual canyons in the nation, Nine Mile Canyon.

“Prior to 1100 A.D., the Fremont culture occupied the canyon,” Steiger writes, “and the records they left in the form of petroglyphs and pictographs comprise the heaviest concentration of rock art in the world today. The Fremont people developed their own art style, which, interestingly, was typified by horned, trapezoidal-bodied, human-like ‘anthropomorphs.’ Were these creatures somehow symbolic of nature spirits? Or did they truly represent visitations by beings decidedly different from the Fremont people’s other Amerindian neighbors?”

Nine Mile Canyon petroglyph.

Another fascinating petroglyph in Nine Mile Canyon consists of a horned person-like figure. To someone of an ancient astronaut bent, the horns may be the sprouting of antennae from a space helmet.

“In this instance,” Steiger writes, “the creature is standing before a row of upraised human hands, which seems to imply awe, reverence or fear. To the human figure’s left, there is a disc-like object. To the disc’s left, there is an upside down human figure faintly etched in the stone.”

In Christina Lake, British Columbia, Canada, one finds a most intriguing pictograph in a natural grotto. The drawing depicts a white disc with black wing-like protuberances hovering over four figures who appear to have bent their knees in an attitude of reverence. Squiggly lines, perhaps suggestive of rays of light, emanate from the top of the object. Longer, more irregular lines extend from the bottom of the disc, possibly portraying smoke or fire.

It is noteworthy that Native American artists – separated by time and thousands of miles – chose to portray not just the appearing of the UFOs but also the awe and reverence with which they as mere mortals had responded to the ships. This is consistent, of course, with similar encounters in the Bible as well as ancient astronaut lore from throughout the world.

MARRIAGES MADE IN THE STARS

Brad and sherry steiger Indian Wisdom

As described in their book, “Indian Wisdom And Its Guiding Power,” Brad and Sherry share lunch with the Uros Indians on their remote island. The Uros honor a mandate not to accept any of humankind’s technology in order to have the Sacred Ones they believe they have descended from return for them in the End Times.

Steiger also discusses the correlations between Native American myths and fairy lore from the European continent, including the notion of mortals of both sexes having amorous relations with beings from beyond.

“The legends of Native Americans contain many accounts of Star Wives and Star Husbands,” he writes. “Although there may be individual cultural differences from tribe to tribe, the basic accounts of the Star Husband could be outlined in this way: A young girl sleeping outside the lodge or wigwam is taken away during the night by the Star People. She awakens to find herself in a different world and the bride of a Star Husband.

“Although life is pleasant in Star Land,” Steiger continues, “the girl grows lonesome for her own people. From time to time, she is permitted to look into a hole through which she can see her tribesmen. But if she grows too despondent, she is permitted to return to her tribe, usually after performing a task which seems to her nonsensical. If a child has been produced by their union, it is usually required that she leave her offspring with her Star Husband and his people.”

A MODERN DAY NATIVE AMERICAN EXPERIENCER

In another chapter of “The American Indian UFO-STARSEED Connection,” we read the first person account of “Dennis,” a Native American, and his UFO encounters, some of which he experienced while undergoing a rite of passage to male adulthood. Dennis hails from a section of New Mexico located between the towns of Grants and Raymond.

“I come from a country,” Dennis begins, “that is 7,000 to 10,000 feet above sea level, with ponderosa and high pines. It is known for what we call ‘spook lights.’ They are usually red or blue. We have a lava flow that is undatable. Some archeologists have tried to date it, but they can’t figure out when it erupted. We have a couple of active volcano areas. There are a few areas which cannot be explored because of the terrain. The Indians have many legends about these areas.

“When I was growing up,” he continues, “I remember seeing lights zip across the sky. There have been archeologists in the area. Most of them don’t make it past midnight. Something scares them!”

A RITUAL OF TERROR

Dennis goes on to talk about undergoing the traditional initiation ceremony.

“What happens is, you are taken out to an area blindfolded and left there. You are supposed to stay in that area for 24 to 48 hours, depending on how big of a wimp they think you are. A few don’t make it. The first time I went out, I didn’t make it. The canyon, just below me, lit up as bright as day. Being very young, I decided that running through the cactus at high speed and jumping barbed wire fences would be safer than sticking around. So I went screaming back to the village.”

strange cloud over second mesa native american indian

Strange clouds have often appeared over Second Mesa (AZ) and have been connected with the disappearance of members of various Native American tribes.

When Dennis tried the ritual again a few years later, a similar thing happened. Only this time, when he saw the large lights, he decided to move in closer and explore. By the time he reached the area that had been so illuminated, the light had dimmed and gone away.

Like Steiger’s Native American friend, Dennis also complains of unbelievers in his community.

“The tradition tells of different types of visitations,” he writes. “I grew up with people who believed that if there was a visitation, it was our government causing it. If we had a flying saucer in the area, it had a U.S. Air Force sticker on it. Later on, these people became unsettled by things they had seen out there.”

As an example, Dennis offers the story of the sighting of a pair of red dots that appeared over the horizon as the tribe was conducting their traditional races. The dots looked like they were sitting right on the mountain. Within a few seconds they took off across the sky. On their way across, they did a “few tricks.” Then they went across the horizon and disappeared. The startled witnesses began to pray and meditate, seeking to find out what was going on.

WITCH DOCTORS AND BABIES FROM THE SKY

Dennis had also heard reports of witch doctors who started their walk in New Mexico and all of a sudden showed up in Mexico, traveling two or three thousand miles in a couple of days.

“The witch doctor who did this was old when I was growing up,” Dennis writes, “and he’s still around. I met him and I remember him from the time when I was two or three years old. He still walks through the desert, still makes his meditation runs and his medicine runs. He has some charms that are very unusual.”

Later, as an adult in the military service stationed in California, Dennis again brushed up against the paranormal.

“Even the Indians that I met in California had legends,” he said. “I got into the Yeti/Bigfoot legends when in I was in the service. I found that many tribes which were up on Mount Shasta all had a joint story. It was about a baby born from a sphere that had fallen from the sky. They [these children] were supposed to be stronger than normal and hairier than normal. They were supposed to have all kinds of abnormal characteristics. They could not speak as we do, yet they communicated among themselves.”

An anthropologist from the Denver Museum visited an area near Dennis’ home in an attempt to investigate and document the region’s strange native legends. The anthropologist set up his camping gear and waited. But at 10:30 P.M., “something” unknown came into the camp that drove both Dennis and the anthropologist out into the unsheltered night. At first, Dennis had warned the visiting scientist to stay close to the fire because only light could protect them from whatever was making its presence felt. Two minutes later the anthropologist was packing up and heading for his jeep. The fear was simply too much for him.

Dennis seems to be speaking of creatures resembling the often-seen small “gray” aliens as the culprit in the above story.

“These creatures are not Bigfoot,” Dennis said. “Their height is about 3’11’ or maybe four feet. I’ve never seen them during the day. I know that they walk on two legs. They are also ambidextrous.”

Dennis said he believes the diminutive creatures love dill pickles. He tried baiting a trap with dill pickles for the creatures but they managed to get the pickles without setting off the trip wires.

THE MAGIC THAT COMES WITH GENUINE CONTACT

Lost Indian Magic

Having established the possibility of an ongoing contact being shared by some Native Americans and the UFO occupants, how has this contact been made manifest in the day-to-day lives of the indigenous earthlings? To answer this question, we turn to another book from Timothy Green Beckley’s Global Communications publishing house called “Lost Indian Magic.”

One learns in Lost Indian Magic” that the Native American method of contacting the spirits that are believed to rule over their lives is to chant or sing to them. “Lost Indian Magic” includes a song intended to serve as a love charm. The words seem to mean that the man singing the song wants to isolate his beloved from the rest of the world.

“Place her standing up on the earth. Where her feet are now and wherever she may go, let loneliness leave its mark upon her. Let her be marked out for loneliness where she stands. I belong to the Wolf Clan. No one is ever lonely with me. I am handsome. Let her put her soul in the very center of my soul, never to turn away.”

Obviously, it is easier to work a love charm on a lonely woman than one surrounded by competing suitors.

That song is followed by one intended to insure the woman’s constancy.

“This woman’s soul has come to rest at the edge of your body. You are never to let go your hold upon it. Let her never think upon any other place. The woman has put her soul into our hands. We shall never let it go!”

There are similar songs included inLost Indian Magic” intended to ensure the faithfulness of one’s spouse. But, interestingly, a song to be sung by a jealous rival is also in the mix. The song is “For Separation of Lovers.” Tobacco is used in this particular ceremony.

“The blue tobacco has come to be your recompense. You have alighted midway between them where they two are standing. You have spoiled their souls immediately. They have at once become separated. Let her eyes in their sockets be forever watching for me. There is no loneliness where my body is.”

The fact that such a song exists for the sake of a jealous rival implies a surprising frankness about human nature. Whatever spirits devised the words seem to be unfazed by a love interest from outside a given marriage. Could it be used as evidence in divorce court?

BIRTH TOTEMS: WHAT’S YOUR SIGN?

nativeamericans

The reader may enjoy another aspect of Native American lore called “The Birth Totem.” It springs from the Native American tradition that everything in life is a circle. This understanding of the cosmos resulted from their observation that the sun moves in a circle, from morning to night and then back again to another morning. The waxing and waning of the moon, from full moon to dark moon and back again, is also a circular movement. They also concluded from the changing of the seasons that the Earth itself moved in a circle as well.

They divided the circular year into 12 “moons,” with each moon possessing its own set of animal, mineral and plant totems. Each of these totems possessed certain qualities that could be passed onto people depending upon the moon under which they were born. The 12 birth totems are similar to the 12 signs of the zodiac we are already familiar with.

As with the zodiac, the characteristics listed for each totem are not necessarily the traits that everyone born under that totem possesses. Each person is unique and moves along in their own way and at their own speed. But those born under the same moon tend to share certain broadly defined qualities.

The fun part is finding your own birth totem moon using the handy chart provided. For example, my birthday falls within what is called the “Rest and Cleansing Moon.” My animal totem is the Otter, and my mineral totem is Turquoise. I’m said to be broadminded, lively, unconventional, perceptive, inventive, self-assured, self-reliant, dynamic, friendly and artistic. I sound like a great guy using this totem system, eh?

THE STORY THAT THE MOONS TELL

nativeamericansfire

In the far reaches of the ever-mysterious desert, the Indian campfires of the long ago heard many a tale worth the telling.

Lost Indian Magic” also provides a listing of sacred herbs to be used in the various ceremonies before it launches into a reprinting of a book from 1918, written by Grace Purdie Moon and Carl Moon, consisting of what the Moons call “A Mystery of the Red Man As He Lived Before the White Men Came.” This long lost and rare book featured paintings and photos by Carl Moon, which Beckley has faithfully reproduced in this newer version.

Surprisingly, for its time, the book is remarkably free of any anthropological bias or prejudice. The authors recount a mystery story that engages the reader from its opening lines and never lets go.

“Out in the region of the sage and the pine,” the Moons write in their Foreword, “in the far reaches of the ever-mysterious desert, the Indian campfires of the long ago heard many a tale worth the telling. Some there were that have been handed down, through the channel of an unwrit tongue, from age to youth – told, retold, and told again until they come to the hearing of even you and me. Thus the ancient tale of the Lost Magic comes to be set down.

“It may be that the legend loses somewhat,” they continue, “in parting with the strange tongue that gave it birth, but the thread on which the crude beads of its adventures are strung runs back even to the first account, and may be of the same spinning.”

The story tells of the protective magic given to the Ah-co tribe by a small bear carved out of turquoise. The artifact is stolen by another tribe who are jealous of the good fortune the bear heaps upon its people. With the bear’s loss comes the inevitable want, woe and disaster for the Ah-co. Seasons pass, but finally the Great Spirit, whose symbol is the sun, goes forth to find the little blue bear and restore it to his people.

Sounds like the kind of story one could envision as a summer blockbuster movie. It’s even a little reminiscent of a “Star Wars” episode with, say, Luke Skywalker going out to do battle for some aspect of the Force while fighting to restore a semblance of moral order to a galaxy far, far away.

In any case, if you’re interested in the ancient astronauts legends of the Native Americans and the spiritual practices intended to obtain the blessings of this powerful alien force, then “The American Indian UFO-Starseed Connection” and “Lost Indian Magic” should be at the top of your reading list. When it comes to contacting the gods of old in today’s world, Timothy Green Beckley’s books often contain just what the spiritual seeker needs in order to reach out and speak to the waiting, ever-patient unknown.

NIKOLA TESLA, THE UNKNOWN “HEALER”

Few Know Of His Discovery Of A Strange “Purple” Energy Plates”

By Sean Casteel

 ·         Read the story of how legendary inventor Nikola Tesla inspired an associate named Ralph Bergstresser to harness the purple healing rays of the universe to treat many forms of illness and pain.  

·         Can simple purple aluminum plates serve to cure the ills of those who use them to ease their suffering? There are many that say they can and who offer themselves as living proof that the method works!  

·         Authors Tim R. Swartz and Timothy Green Beckley have long been searching for the truth behind the mystery of Nikola Tesla. Are we to add the words “healer” to Tesla’s long list of accomplishments?

TESLA PURPLE PLATE COVER

The Miracle of Nikola Tesla’s Purple Energy Plates

When I finished reading the latest Tesla-related book from Timothy Green Beckley’s Inner Light/Global Communications publishing house, entitled The Miracle of Nikola Tesla’s Purple Energy Plates,” I was reminded of a cartoon in The New Yorker Magazine from several years back.  

The cartoon depicted two scientists gazing at a blackboard with a complicated equation etched in chalk, the kind of exercise in higher mathematics that leaves most laypeople utterly baffled and uncomprehending. Amid the sea of numbers and mathematical symbols are written the words “Then a miracle happens.” One scientist points at the words on the chalkboard and says, “Maybe this step should be a little more specific?”  

Like most New Yorker cartoons, it’s not exactly a knee-slapper, but it still helps to illustrate how one may respond to The Miracle of Nikola Tesla’s Purple Energy Plates,” authored by Tim R. Swartz and the aforementioned Timothy Green Beckley.  

The titular purple plates combine the two factors illustrated in the New Yorker cartoon – advanced scientific calculations that are kick-started into reality by a miracle.  

 UNDER THE WATCHFUL EYE OF THE FBI 

fbidocument

FBI document about the death of Nikola Tesla.

The book opens with some remarks from Swartz, who recounts that after Tesla’s death in 1943 the FBI confiscated all the late scientist’s papers and notes from the hotel room in which he lived out his final impoverished days.  

In recently declassified FBI files, according to Swartz, “There is mention of Ralph Bergstresser a friend of Tesla’s who reported to the FBI his concern that foreign agents may have targeted Tesla to steal his notes and inventions, or possibly even kidnap him.”    

Bergstresser’s relationship with Tesla is important because he is the actual inventor of the purple plates that were a later product of Tesla’s medical experiments in “electro-magnetic healing.”  

The reader will of course recognize that Tesla is the genius who gave us alternating current and a wealth of other vital inventions that we now take for granted. But the new book focuses on just the purple plates and their healing powers, that mysterious blend of technology with the seemingly miraculous.

The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla, By Tim R. Swartz

It should perhaps be pointed out that Tim Swartz has long been associated with the life and study of Nikola Tesla. His previous work, The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla,” has gone through several editions, been translated into Romanian and has often been quoted, being one of the best sources on Tesla’s outstanding accomplishments and the attempt by many to squelch and steal – particularly upon his death – his valuable contributions to the world. Swartz has been questioned about his findings on numerous podcasts and radio shows, such as Coast to Coast AM. Recently he was interviewed as part of a History Channel mini-series The Tesla Files.” 

To return to the story of Ralph Bergstresser: He was himself an electrical engineer who met Tesla in 1943 with the idea of the two working together to create some form of weapons technology that would hasten the end of the Second World War.  

“Bergstresser was impressed,” Swartz and Beckley write, “with the knowledge, demeanor and deep, abiding, humanitarian ideals of Tesla.”  

HOW FREE CAN ENERGY BE? 

bergstresser3

Tesla imparted to Bergstresser the concept of “Free Energy,” an admittedly ambiguous term which defies any standard or concrete definition and that might not be fully understood with our clumsy 21st Century knowledge of cosmic laws.  

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe,” Tesla famously said, “think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration. The universe IS energy, and each basic element of the known atomic chart consists of energy at different rates of vibration. The difference between any two elements is the difference in both atomic structure and vibration rates.” 

Tesla believed that, given that the universe at its most basic level consisted of energy, it should be possible to tap into that energy as a power source that could serve all of humanity at no cost. Thus it was to be “Free Energy,” not the money-consuming energies provided by coal, oil and gasoline.  

“With this, the torch of enlightenment had been passed on,” Swartz and Beckley write. “Bergstresser soon blended the futuristic thoughts about frequency and his own expertise to serve humanity and spent the next 20 years of his life committed to breaking through the veil of matter to access free energy.” 

By the early 1960s, Bergstresser felt he had succeeded, in spite of years of ridicule intended to repress his research. He introduced the Tesla purple energy plate to the world. He had chosen an inexpensive medium (specially-treated aluminum) that would act as a transceiver that both drew in and radiated out Universal Life Force Energy, or “Free Energy.” 

WHAT THE PLATES HAVE ACCOMPLISHED 

purple-plate

The official Tesla Purple Energy Plate.

As has been explained by the inventor: The plates have enhanced and benefited anyone or anything that was in close proximity to them. The plate was not charged like a battery, so it could never be discharged. The plates are a beautiful violet color and are a window into the Fourth and Fifth dimensional energy fields. They radiate Life Force Energy (Chi/prana) for a distance of 10 to 18 inches. In no way can these plates be harmful.   

The positive universal energy generated by the plates is said to accelerate the healing of burns, cuts, aches and other troublesome pains. They can also raise a person’s energy level. This is an example of the higher energy used by faith healers down through the eons. The plates create a positive energy around themselves that will penetrate any material substance by osmosis. This energy is said to be beneficial to all life: plant, animal or human.  

The plates are anodized aluminum, meaning they have been coated with a protective film which makes the metal more amenable to the purple coloration. Meanwhile, the color purple is considered the healing ray of the rainbow spectrum. 

These plates will help to raise the vibrational rate of any individual using them. Many people place their food on the large purple plates, when they are still in paper sacks from the market, to keep their food fresher, longer. Some people sleep on these plates by placing them under their mattress to help give them more stamina and vitality and relieve tensions. No medical claims are made or implied. They are said to have benefited those individuals who have placed them on injured areas of the body. A certain heightened degree of hormonal intimacies among couples has also been reported. This would be similar to the energy generated by Wilhelm Reich’s Orgone Accumulator.

Though having none of the same properties, and not working on the same principles, Tesla’s plates have become very popular among those working with the devices known as the Black Box or the Rife Machine.

The Tesla Purple Energy Disc.

Indeed, the possible uses for the plates are many. Just carry the small plates in your pocket or purse or near your bedside or front door for harmony, or in your car while out driving to assist in avoiding stress and fatigue. Better yet, wear the discs as a necklace or earrings. You will find many testimonials in the pages of this book given by those individuals who are convinced that the plates, as inspired by Nikola Tesla, have enhanced their all-around well-being.   The book includes a chapter by Dr. Roy Kupsinel, who visited Bergstresser’s purple plates factory and was amazed by what he saw.  

“Orders for these purple energy plates are pouring in from all over the world,” Kupsinel writes in Health Consciousness Magazine. The doctor now declares that he has used the purple plates himself and has recommended them to other people, who are most appreciative.  

The reader may be surprised to learn that Tesla himself was a pioneer in a field of medicine called “Electro-Therapy.” Tesla was one of the first electrical engineers to pay attention to the physiological effects on humans of high frequency, high tension currents. The careful application of electric energy could produce many positive medical results. In fact, Tesla used such a method to treat his own depression.  

But Electro-Therapy soon drew the ire of the pharmaceutical companies and the American Medical Association. The innovative work done by Tesla and others was officially reduced to the level of “quackery” in the West, but during the Cold War years Soviet scientists built on Tesla’s research and practiced their own form of Electro-Therapy successfully.  

 SOME SATISFIED CUSTOMERS

 “The Miracle of Nikola Tesla’s Purple Energy Plates” concludes with the testimonials of several satisfied customers.  

For example, Karen D. of New Jersey writes: “I want to tell you how much your products helped. I have a torn rotator cuff and it is painful and limits my motion. Within 24 hours of wearing the quartz bracelet with the purple disk the pain was completely gone. A boy who had brain surgery for a tumor and is now prone to headaches asked if he could use the small plate. It helped him and I gave it to him. Thank you for your time and help. Thank you for a miracle product.”   

More praise comes from Franklin T. MacDonald of Ashville, Tennessee.  

“I just received a purple plate pendant from a good friend of mine. I was a pretty huge skeptic and was sure this stuff was absolute crap. But I was wrong! Your product has really changed my life! Not only has it shown a profound effect on me, but I’ve noticed my family is now in a better mood and the vibes given off from this thing are showing that it is working. I also placed the plate under a cup of water and it made the water taste so much fresher and crisp. My three-year-old cousin said something to me the other day that completely shocked me. She said she could feel the pendant shaking and it really freaked her out. Is there something that children can see and hear that we adults can’t? I’m amazed! Thank you for this amazing product!” 

Yet another testimonial, from Thomas McNair of Washington, D.C., seems to have medical evidence to support it: 

“I have a story to tell you. I had been having pain in my abdomen and was successfully using a small plate to ease the pain before my scheduled surgery. I had to get x-rays of my torso area before the operation. On the x-ray there was an illuminated rectangle area in the shape of the plate I had been using for the pain! The technician was mystified, but I knew exactly what it was – the energy was still there, helping with the pain. I found this to be amazing and now I have proof that the energy works! THANK YOU!”   

And so we are left to wonder about the purple energy plates of Tesla and Bergstresser. Are they the perfect marriage of man’s technology and the miraculous healing energies of the universe? Will they actually relieve pain and re-energize the fatigued and the depressed?  

Without FDA approval, one is forbidden to make such claims. But for a relatively small investment you can give the unknown a try.  

Beckley and Swartz are constantly expanding upon their findings on Tesla’s purple energy plates and invite others to participate with them in their research by working with the plates directly. Further information may be found on their web site: www.TeslaSecretLab.com

WEIRD WINGED WONDERS – FROM DRAGONS TO ACROBATIC AERIAL ALIENS AND FLOATING HUMANOIDS

By Sean Casteel

  • They are believed by many to be the agents of the “dark gods”! Their massive wings are known to cast a paralyzing shadow over the land.
  • They exist alongside us in the “real world,” yet we know next to nothing about them.
  • They appear to inhabit physical bodies, but they could be arriving from other dimensions through “window” areas or portals.
  • What manner of creature is it that is called the Mothman? Is the winged interloper a harbinger of death? Or a cryptozoological entity who means us no harm?
  • Some Native Americans believe that the Thunderbird was the creator of life on Earth. Do we owe our very existence to an elusive creature with an awe inspiring wing span and the power to call up all living things from the watery depths?
  • Winged dragons are regarded in nearly every culture on Earth as benevolent entities, perhaps even mankind’s creators. But the Biblical/European view posits that dragons are evil. Join the lively moral discussion with writer and television personality Tim Swartz.

Weird Winged Wonders – The Twilight World of Cryptid Creatures

Who among us hasn’t wished to spread their wings and fly? To cease to be earthbound and soar to the heavens?

But perhaps, in real-world terms, a person with wings might not be such a pleasant, liberating thing. “Weird Winged Wonders: The Twilight World of Cryptid Creatures” from Timothy Green Beckley’s Global Communications/Inner Light publishing house, offers important new insights into flying humanoids. The reader should understand that we’re not dealing with the classic images of winged angels as portrayed by artists down through the centuries. The book is about something much stranger, more “alien” and frightening.

A case in point would be the mysterious Mothman, popularized in recent years by the 2002 movie “The Mothman Prophecies,” which was based on a book of the same title by legendary paranormal researcher and author John Keel.

The book and movie tell a fascinating story of the appearance of the winged creature which is most frequently described as a human-looking figure with wings and two giant red eyes. The creature is reported as being six to eight feet tall; his wings are bat-like and sometimes folded against his back. After more than a year of scattered sightings by locals in the area around Point Pleasant, West Virginia that began in autumn of 1966, a tragic accident occurred. The Silver Bridge, vital to commuters in the area, collapsed during rush hour traffic in December 1967, killing dozens of people. Residents soon began to wonder if there was a connection between the Mothman’s many appearances and the massive bridge disaster. Did the winged man consciously function as a harbinger of death?

MORE RECENT SIGHTINGS OF THE MOTHMAN

In the years since the frightening events in Point Pleasant, the Mothman has continued his sporadic appearances around the world. But in 2017, in Chicago, a new and massive wave of Mothman sightings began that has as yet shown no signs abating.

Beginning in late March 2017, UFO and paranormal researcher and author Lon Strickler found himself tasked with receiving reports of Mothman sightings in the Chicago area. He quickly amassed 40 up-to-the-minute reports and wrote a book about his work, entitled “Mothman Dynasty: Chicago’s Winged Humanoids.”

Strickler admits up front that he is still a long way from answering the lingering questions he shares with the people who reported their experiences.

mothman

“Mothman” was seen in the Point Pleasant, WV area starting around 1966.

“What is it?” Strickler asks. “Where is it coming from? Why now? Is there a reason why the sightings are occurring in the general Chicago metro area? This current group of winged humanoid sightings is probably the largest since the Mothman encounters in the vicinity of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, during 1966-67. Those sightings have become legendary, namely because the Mothman was seen as a harbinger of catastrophe after the collapse of the Silver Bridge on the evening of December 15, 1967. The bridge spanned the Ohio River between Point Pleasant and Gallipolis, Ohio, and the disaster took the lives of 46 people.”

Strickler quite naturally connected the dots between the Point Pleasant and Chicago sightings.

“There are many opinions as to why these new sightings are occurring,” he told a website called “Mysterious Universe,” “including a general feeling that unfortunate events may be in the city’s future. The witnesses have been very steadfast with what they’ve seen and refuse to embellish on their initial descriptions. Each witness has had a feeling of dread and foreboding, which I believe translates into a warning of some type.”

Interestingly, Strickler says he somewhat regrets making that speculative statement before all the facts were in. While the quote may one day prove to be true, he now feels it is better to let the data and evidence determine what the winged humanoids really are.

“The presence of unknown winged beings,” Strickler writes, “is probably as old as the human imagination. But after reading and listening to hundreds of eyewitness accounts over the past four decades, I have concluded that these beings are much more than fantasy. We’re determined to find the truth.”

BRAD STEIGER ON THE THUNDERBIRD LEGENDS

Brad Steiger

The renowned journalist of the paranormal, Brad Steiger, is the prolific author of numerous books, such as “Real Visitors, Voices From Beyond and Parallel Dimensions,” as well as the upcoming “Haunted: Malevolent Ghosts, Night Terrors and Threatening Phantoms,” which is due out in September 2018 and is available now for pre-order on Amazon.com. Steiger contributes a pair of chapters to “Weird Winged Wonders,” including one that recounts some of the Thunderbird legends that are a part of Native American culture.

“The Chippewa tribe has a tradition,” Steiger writes, “that, in the time-before-time-began, there existed a bird of supreme majesty that descended to Earth, which was then only a vast expanse of water. The bird’s eyes were fire; its glance was lightning; and the motion of its wings rippled the air with thunder. When its talons touched the water, the Earth Mother arose from the deep waters, bringing with her to the surface all manner of animals.

“Many other Native American tribes,” he continues, “have traditions that tell of birds as agents of creation, and the winged giants became objects of religious ceremony among many of the native people. The journal of an early Roman Catholic priest records that the first time the tribal members of the California mission that he served saw the representation of a dove over the altar, they asked if it was the Christian thunderbird.”

thunderbird native american

Native Americans tell stories of a variety of huge winged creatures known to disturb their peoples.

Steiger writes further that for hundreds of years thunderbirds were seen by not only Native Americans but also frontiersmen and settlers. Eventually newspapers began to take these accounts seriously enough to report them.

One example offered by Steiger was from a Bedford, Iowa newspaper in 1887. A man named Lee Corder encountered a flying serpent writhing and twisting, with protruding eyes and a forked tongue. Great scales, which glistened in the sunlight, covered its huge body, which appeared to be flat and nearly a foot in width.

The newspaper account described Corder as a man of “unimpeachable veracity,” and goes on to say that he, and those with him, watched the flying serpent with “awe and astonishment” as the creature landed in a cornfield a few rods distant with a dull thud. The witnesses professed to be so frightened that none of them wished to block its path. It was permitted to pass on its way “unmolested,” and no one attempted to halt its wish to return to the sky.

Three years later, in another Iowa town, Independence, citizens reported seeing a monster with wings, a monstrous head with horns, and a mouth like an alligator’s. Its body was greenish in color and covered with shiny scales; its eyes glared like an electric arc light; and it yelled in a tone that sounded like a combination of the roar of a lion and the scream of a wildcat.

WINGED DRAGONS FROM ANCIENT TIMES

Another author in Timothy Green Beckley’s impressive stable of writers is Tim Swartz, who has authored numerous books for Beckley as well as being featured on the History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” series. For “Weird Winged Wonders,” Swartz has contributed a chapter on Winged Dragons and Other Airborne Oddities.

“Dragons throughout history have both fascinated and terrified people,” Swartz writes. “They are among the most popular and enduring of the world’s mythological creatures. Dragons have a long and rich tradition that continues through to modern times in books, films and television. The dragons in ‘Game of Thrones’ are a good example of how these ancient beasts have thrived in modern pop culture. Scientists say that dragons never existed, yet there are numerous reports of interaction with dragons that cannot be ignored.”

Dragon allegedly filmed flying over China.

Swartz explains that it’s not clear when or where dragons first emerged. Some scholars speculate that the discovery of fossilized dinosaur bones may have been the genesis of ancient dragon lore. What is known is that practically every society had them in their mythologies. For much of human history, dragons were thought of as being real as well as either useful and protective or harmful and dangerous.

The King James Version of the Old Testament contains at least twenty-two citations for dragons, Swartz informs us. The majority of Old Testament references to dragons are derived from the Hebrew word ‘tanniym’ or ‘tannim.’ This word can mean a jackal, serpent, sea serpent or even a land or sea monster.

Swartz then quotes from the Book of Isaiah, 30:6, which reads, “The burden against the beasts of the South, Through a land of trouble and anguish, From which came the lioness and the lion, The VIPER AND FLYING SERPENT, They will carry their riches on the backs of young donkeys, And their treasures on the humps of camels, To a people who shall not profit.”

Another Old Testament verse, Deuteronomy 32:33, declares that “Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.”

“I am a brother to dragons, and a companion to owls,” reads Job 30:29.

The Biblical references to winged reptiles depict primarily negative creatures, but there have been more positive interpretations. An ancient apocryphal document called “The Apocalypse of Abraham,” found only in the Slavonic language and dated to the First Century C.E., clearly depicts the serpent which tempted Eve as a winged dragon.

Eve and the serpent, William Blake, public domain

“The Apocalypse of Abraham,” found only in the Slavonic language and dated to the First Century C.E., clearly depicts the serpent which tempted Eve as a winged dragon.

“And they were standing under a tree in Eden,” the document reads, “and the fruit of the tree was like the appearance of a bunch of grapes on the vine. And behind the tree, standing something like a dragon in form, but having hands and feet, just like a man’s, and ON HIS BACK SIX WINGS ON THE RIGHT AND SIX ON THE LEFT. He was holding the grapes of the tree and feeding them to the two I saw entwined with each other.”

Swartz then discusses the idea that flying serpents or dragons are found in the cultures of people throughout history and are usually considered to be benevolent creatures and in some cases are the ancestors of man.

“This is why the European view of the dragon as evil is unique,” Swartz writes. “The evil nature of dragons is prevalent in Jewish literature such as the Mishnah, the part of the Talmud which is the commentary on ethical behavior. Images of dragons are especially frowned upon according to the ancient rules.”

Another scholar of ancient mythology, this time of the Greek persuasion, is writer Hercules Invictus, who provides an excellent overview of winged humanoids who existed among the gods and demigods of Olympus.  Creatures in the Greek traditions whose supernatural powers include the ability to take flight on their own enormous wings are more numerous than you might expect and Hercules does an excellent job of cataloging them in “Weird Winged Wonders.”

WEIRD WINGED WONDERS AS COVERED BY A WEALTH OF WRITERS

jerseydevil

The Jersey Devil is a legendary winged creature said to inhabit the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey.

Timothy Green Beckley has again assembled a wealth of writers, this time to cover various aspects of winged wonders down through history and into our present day. Beckley writes the book’s introductory chapter as well as pieces on the Jersey Devil and winged cats. He also presents the work of several contributors who examine the subject of weird winged wonders from many different angles and present dozens of case histories of winged phenomena, both good and evil.

This article would not be complete without listing them all. They are the aforementioned Tim Swartz, Lon Strickler, Brad Steiger and Hercules Invictus. Also included are Jonathan Whitcomb, Allen Greenfield, Steve Ward, Nomar Slevik, Scott Corrales, Albert Rosales, Paul Dale Roberts and Paul Eno. In the interest of full disclosure, I myself have written a chapter on the Chicago Mothman sightings and the work of Lon Strickler that is included in the book.

Weird Winged Wonders” is a welcome addition to the literature of the paranormal. The subject of winged creatures in ancient myth and modern folklore is fascinating but often overlooked, and Beckley’s unique ability to carve out a piece of supernatural territory that deserves wider coverage is again on display here. You should avail yourself of the opportunity to educate yourself on the legends of gods and demons who take flight on the wings of mystery.

LEGACY OF THE SKY PEOPLE: WAS NOAH’S ARK A STRANGE VEHICLE FROM MARS?

By Sean Casteel

legacy of sky people

The cover of the recently updated and expanded edition of “Legacy of the Sky People.”

Timothy Green Beckley just keeps those hits coming! Like a favorite Golden Oldies radio station, the old days are never really gone, and new shades of meaning continue to accrue.

Beckley’s latest blast from the past is a greatly expanded update of Brinsley Le Poer Trench’s “The Sky People,” one of the earliest books to emerge on what is now the familiar concept of Ancient Astronauts. Most people nowadays consider Erich von Daniken and the late Zechariah Stichen to be the headliners for this ancient aliens show, but Trench, an Englishman who was also the 8th Earl of Clancarty and thus a member of the House of Lords in the British Parliament, was there ahead of both those distinguished gentlemen with his groundbreaking “The Sky People” from the early 1960s.

The story of Brinsley Le Poer Trench is close to Beckley’s heart. Beckley began to correspond with Trench in the 1960s when Beckley was just starting out as a UFO journalist and publisher. The two flying saucer enthusiasts exchanged their respective publications (“Flying Saucer Review,” published in the UK, and Beckley’s “Interplanetary News Service Report” in the U.S.) and shared a warm correspondence for many years. In the 1970s, Trench invited Beckley to speak before a special committee on UFOs at the House of Lords, and Beckley made the trip to London without hesitation. Over forty years later, Beckley still speaks fondly of the late Earl of Clancarty, who died in 1995.

It should be noted that Beckley’s “Bizarre Bazaar/Conspiracy Journal” publishing “empire” has not shied away from publishing works of great historical value on the arrival of interstellar beings throughout antiquity. He has previously published works of the great Sir Walter R. Drake (i.e. “Alien Space Gods of Ancient Greece and Rome/Ancient Secrets of Mysterious America“) as well as the controversial George Hunt Williamson (“Other Tongues Other Flesh/Ancient Secrets of the Andes and the Golden Sun Disc“).  But Beckley hasn’t merely repackaged Trench’s book. He has also added new material from some of the best writers in Ufology with their personal studies of ancient astronauts theory. For example, Nick Redfern, one of the top researchers in the paranormal today, contributes a longish chapter to the new book in which he discusses the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark.

Everyone is familiar with the story, taken from the Book of Genesis. But are you aware that the story – a great, world-destroying flood from which God spared only a handful of righteous mortals and two of every kind of beast – is also an integral part of other religious traditions, such as the Sumerian, the Babylonian, and the ancient Hindus? Redfern explains how the story of a human being instructed to build a ship to shelter a remnant of mankind from a looming world cataclysm is one of the most universal of religious myths, spanning the globe with its timeless tale of good triumphing over evil.

But Redfern’s examination of the Ark story doesn’t end there. Legend has it that Noah’s Ark came to rest on Turkey’s Mount Ararat. Redfern tells the intriguing story of how in 1949, a U.S. Air Force flight crew photographed an anomalous structure protruding from the ice and snow of Mount Ararat and started a decades-long effort by the military and intelligence communities to understand what the mysterious object actually is.

mtararatobjectWorking from declassified files obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, Redfern recounts how the anomalous object was thought to be something metallic, not the gopher-wood of Noah’s construction, and therefore possibly a crashed alien ship. The chain of documents uncovered by Redfern makes for fascinating reading.

When 1950s-era alien contactees like George Van Tassel also took an interest in the mystery atop Mount Ararat, they came under the watchful eye of the CIA and FBI. Information on the structure was at one point leaking like a sieve, according to Redfern, and the government was determined to plug those leaks. What was the government so determined to hide? Was the discovery of Noah’s Ark a national security issue? Or was it a case of another crashed UFO? Turkey’s own version of the Roswell Incident?

Brad Steiger

My own contributions to the new edition of “The Sky People” are a couple of chapters in which I speak to Brad Steiger, one of the most prolific writers on the strange and supernatural in the world, and Giorgio Tsoukalos, the official spokesman for Erich von Daniken in the English-speaking world, and the personality with that wild and crazy styled hair on “Ancient Aliens” broadcast over the History Channel.

Steiger recalls attending an Ancient Astronauts conference in the early 1980s at which the main speakers were Erich von Daniken, Josef Blumrich (author of “The Spaceships of Ezekiel,” written when he worked at NASA) and Steiger himself. Not in attendance was our man of the hour, Brinsley Le Poer Trench.

“He was probably generally neglected,” Steiger said, “because Erich von Daniken was the fair-haired boy at that time and was given a great deal of credit for coming up with the whole ancient astronauts concept. It was easier to do then. We didn’t have the media that we do now. And a book such as ‘The Sky People’ was read by a few individuals, but the great masses of people then were not interested. Then something comes out and gets a lot of attention, like ‘Chariots of the Gods?’ As people said, von Daniken just happened to be standing in front of the cosmic slot machine when it paid off.”

Stieger also praised Trench for his theories concerning the Planet Mars, specifically the idea that instead of Noah being an ancient Israelite, he was a great leader on Mars and the Ark was a giant spaceship intended to carry a surviving remnant to Earth.

“At the time Trench said it,” Stieger continued, “people weren’t prepared. But it’s been interesting to see that in most polls the idea of life existing on other planets or in other solar systems is now generally accepted by young people. Whereas back in the 1950s and 1960s, it was rejected by nearly everyone. More and more, the idea that life could have existed elsewhere in our solar system doesn’t get a door slammed immediately.”

Steiger said he has come to feel that, “We have met the Martians and they are us,” meaning we may have been genetically engineered by a superior race who originated on Mars and brought life to Earth for whatever unknown cosmic reason.

“I think, the more I study,” Steiger said, “that we are definitely hardwired to perceive advanced beings as godlike, and I think we are hardwired just to perceive and understand a concept of God. Now, whether that has been hardwired by our progenitors from outer space, or it is just hardwired in terms of our evolution and our DNA, for how we perceive entities greater than we, is a question we could discuss endlessly. But I think it’s just hardwired into us to perceive that we are part of a greater cosmic entity.”

I also discussed the God angle with Giorgio Tsoukalos, who, along with his mentor Erich von Daniken, draws a definite line in the sand when it comes to calling the ancient astronauts the literal Creator God.

“Let’s say you and I create an intelligent species in the lab,” Tsoukalos said. “That does not make you and me God. The whole ‘God question’ transcends the extraterrestrial presence. The extraterrestrials that Erich von Daniken and I talk about are not ethereal beings. They were flesh and blood, physical people consisting of the same atoms and molecules and particles that every single human being and every single thing has here on Planet Earth.

“That is also why the extraterrestrials look like us,” he continued. “The whole idea that extraterrestrials look like something out of the movie ‘Aliens’ or ‘Independence Day,’ that’s a Hollywood stereotype. But both Erich and I think that there is an all-encompassing force in the universe. But you can’t really put your finger on it. You can’t really touch it. Even the extraterrestrials have the same exact questions about life, death, God and religion and all those different things that we are struggling with today. To suggest that the extraterrestrials have all the mysteries solved – I think it’s not that easy.”

Tim Swartz, another major writer for Global Communications and the editor of the online “Conspiracy Journal,” also contributes a chapter to this updated edition of “The Sky People.” Swartz gives the kind of broad overview of the ancient astronauts theory that will be very helpful for those new to the subject as well as for those more familiar with this strange territory. He begins by talking about paintings found in caves around the world.

“Cave paintings from Tanzania,” Swartz writes, “estimated to be up to 29,000 years old, depict several disc-shaped objects that appear to be hovering over the landscape. Another painting shows four humanoid entities surrounding a woman while another entity looks down from the sky inside some sort of box.

“Inside the French cave of Pech Merle,” Swartz continues, “near Le Cabrerets, are paintings from around 17,000 to 15,000 BCE that show landscapes full of wildlife with a number of saucer-shaped objects. One painting actually shows the figure of a man looking up at one of the overhead saucers. In northern Australia, there are a number of cave paintings, possibly more than 5,000 years old, that show strange beings with large heads and eyes, wearing spacesuit-like garments. The Aborigines call these creatures Wandjina, and according to legend, the Wandjina came down from the stars in the Milky Way during the Dreamtime and created the Earth and all its inhabitants.”

The phenomenon of the cave paintings Swartz describes is the sort of thing that inspired Brinsley Le Poer Trench and the other researchers of the ancient astronauts theory to begin with, although Trench’s ideas also depended a great deal on his groundbreaking interpretation of the Book of Genesis.

Trench was among the first to recognize that Genesis actually contains two different versions of the Creation Story and the Great Flood account. This has puzzled Biblical scholars for many years, who believe that the differing versions were probably inexpertly grafted together from earlier oral and written traditions. This fact is not taught in Sunday school or preached from the pulpits, but it is there for anyone to read.

What was Trench’s take on the two different Creation Stories? For him, it was simple: two different races of man were created by two separate Creator Gods, one called the Elohim (which is actually a plural term) and the other called Jehovah, which Trench says is also a plural term, though not generally thought of as such.

The Elohim created a form of man who is telepathic, intelligent and sensitive. The Jehovah created a more primitive form of man, designed to till the gods’ gardens on the Earth and otherwise be servile and docile. According to Trench, both races have survived into modern times, but it is the superior form of mankind created by the Elohim who will eventually win out. Some of us are rapidly reacquiring the telepathy we were meant to have from our very earliest beginnings and mankind will eventually become a sensitive, caring race living again in a virtual paradise. Meanwhile, the strain of mankind created by the Jehovah will eventually flounder in its paranoia and delusions of grandeur and gradually cease to exist.

thumbnail_aliens-in-time-and-space-maria

Could the ancient aliens still be living among us; working and raising families and going about the same everyday activities we all do?

This all sounds a little like the coming of a Biblically-inspired Super Man, and one wonders if the entire race being telepathic might not be a little uncomfortable at times. Alien abduction researcher David Jacobs also believes in a future telepathic world, but he questions how a person might function without the privacy of his thoughts? Like many issues raised by Trench, this one is not so easily resolved. Trench also has a prescient moment or two when he writes about global warming and the threat posed by radical religious fundamentalism. Writing over 50 years ago, he seems to have his finger on the pulse of our own times. Was he a prophet himself?

The ancient aliens are still with us today, according to Trench. Some of them live among us unseen, working and raising families and going about the same everyday activities we all do. This also has been touched upon by more current UFO researchers, like the late Budd Hopkins, who claimed that alien/human hybrid creatures – who appear utterly human physically – walk among us equipped with telepathic and other “supernatural” capabilities. These same aliens, Trench believed, will prevent us from perishing by our own hand, with nuclear weapons or ecological suicide, which is a welcome departure from the more vocal prophets of doom. For Trench, our survival was guaranteed, not our demise.

So whether you’re Bible-believing or a staunch agnostic, Brinsley Le Poer Trench and the other contributors to this updated version of “The Sky People” will give you new and different perspectives on many truths you may have long taken for granted about God and the evolution of mankind. Be prepared for a fascinating and complex dive into the unknown that will surely be worth more than the cover price.

INSIDE THE SAUCERS – A RETROSPECT

By Timothy Green Beckley

orthon and tim

Looking “out of style”, Beckley gazes in wonderment at a painting of Orthon the Venusian space traveler whom George Adamski claims to have met in the California desert.

While its open for debate, I can trace my UFOlogical roots back to 1957 when I sighted two objects revolving overhead in the sky. One was hovering over an abandoned factory building across the street from where I lived in New Jersey, while the other stood still almost directly above the house that my grandparents owned. I didn’t observe any portholes, “little green men” didn’t wave to me, but I fully realized — despite a pronouncement by the authorities in the paper a couple of days later to the effect that we were all hypnotized by the appearance of a couple of weather balloons — that these lights, objects, craft (call them what you may) seemed to be under intelligent control. Indeed, they were not bobbing and weaving in the air current. In fact, they seem to know what they were doing (whatever that was), which I think — at least partly — was to get my attention and to push me into unknown territory.

And boy did they ever!

I went and purchased all the material I could find on the subject (including a copy of Fate magazine), started writing letters to the local newspaper and harassing a couple of reporters who I knew kind of went along with my thinking on the subject, that we were being observed by someone — or something — else.

So its been more than half a century now since I threw my hat into the flying saucer ring ding. As fate had it (there are NO coincidences my dozens of personal synchronicities have proven to me) I became an “authority” on the subject, published several nationally distributed newsstand magazines on UFOs, and today as a publisher of my own micro mini “empire,” can lay claim to having published nearly 300 volumes on the paranormal (to see most of them simply go to Amazon.com and type in Inner Light – Global Communications under books).

Inside the Saucers – Mr. UFOs Teenage Years

To commemorate my more than half a century UFOlogical folly, I decided to reprint the first book we ever published back in 1964. Its a real collectors item, and we have to thank Flying Saucer Digest’s Rick Hilberg for photo copying this rather “rough looking” tome which was printed on a spirit duplicator (how fitting). The material, even by today’s standards is interesting, exciting and probably covers a lot newbies may not be familiar with as its origins are almost prehistoric.

The following is my thinking on UFOs today versus yesteryear. The book has been reformatted by associate Tim Swartz, some new art drawn and revised by Carol Ann Rodriguez, and a handful of photos added to “dress up” the book. We also have to thank Sean Casteel for finding a few typos that might have been overlooked during the glorious Sixties. So here then is a brief preview of the collectors item known as INSIDE THE SAUCERS (with special thanks to all our friends).

                                        BACK A BIT IN TIME – FLYING SAUCER STYLE

A lot of boys my age were probably starting to think about girls and sneaking a peek at their father’s Playboy collection. Well, it took me a few years to get into the sins of the flesh. (As it turned out, about ten years later, I became the adult movie review critic for “Hustler Magazine.”) Instead, at 14 or 15, I was reading magazines like “Fate” and “Flying Saucers From Other Worlds.” And, along the way, I hooked up with a small collective of other would-be teen UFOlogists.

Let me clarify: we weren’t particularly geeks or nerds (such terms hadn’t even been coined yet), but we did have some fairly lofty ideals when it came to the subject of flying saucers and their presumed alien crews. Lured by the magic of NASA’s earliest missions and a full-blown nationalistic battle to beat the Russians into orbiting a satellite, we were more into the cosmos than into what we possibly thought at the time were more mundane earthly matters…like keeping our grades up in school.

By “coincidence,” we all met through a column in Ray Palmer’s digest magazine. “Flying Saucers” was an offbeat, bantam-sized publication that cost a whopping thirty-five cents and which you either had to subscribe to or hunt for in the back rows and racks of some pretty obscure newsstands. Palmer had edited a pulp science fiction magazine out of Chicago called “Amazing Stories,” where he tied in underground civilizations, lost worlds and the sightings of some pretty strange, fan-dangled, whirling disc-shaped objects that were just beginning to be seen in the sky all over the United States following World War II.

It was 1962-63 and we were thirsty for knowledge. There was no Internet. No cell phones. So, if you had an inquisitive mind, you read. And if you were into UFOs, Palmer’s zine was about the only ballgame in town devoted entirely to the subject. And I know I was eager to seek out others who shared my interest and might have information to exchange. And so on my manual typewriter I wrote a letter to Palmer Publications about my interests and he published it alongside similar communiques. Correspondence was exchanged through the mail with others who had gotten my address from the pages of this strange little magazine devoted to a very fringe topic. In fact, we were making friends all over the world, in countries that we couldn’t immediately pinpoint on the map.

I suppose I think of myself as a second generation UFO researcher. Or more accurately as a Fortean mindful of the depth and scope of Charles Fort’s contribution to unexplained phenomena and his dedication of hours spent going through dusty newspaper files and scientific journals gathering dust in libraries in the U.S. and the UK.

Truth is, I wasn’t on the scene when the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena was formed, nor did I ever become a member of APRO, the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization, which was a bit more liberal-minded when it came to UFOs, who was inside, and what their mission in coming to earth might be. NICAP was strictly “nuts-and-bolts,” as we say, and was determined to prove that UFOs were physical craft from outer space. They went after reports by pilots, cops and scientific types, while APRO was keen on collecting reports of humanoid beings seen in association with the craft. They were picking up reports from all over Europe and South America, while NICAP centered its attention on butting heads with the Air Force over what they felt was an attempt to stonewall the topic and to keep the saucers a closely guarded secret from the American public.

At some point – circa 1963/64 – I decided to throw my own saucer-shaped hat into the UFOlogical ring and start my own organization as well as an affiliated publication which we called (no drum roll necessary on this uninspired name) “The Interplanetary News Service Report.”

InterplanetaryNewsService10-1964 (1)

Beckley’s first UFO publication. The Interplanetary News Service Report had a catchy cover by Canadian artist Gene Duplantier of a UFO “ambushing” an American submarine.

The organization and its publication quickly grew from a few dozen members to over 1500, probably making us the third largest organization of its type in the country. Some members knew my age, others didn’t – none seemed to care! I was putting out a pretty impressive 40 page publication with the aid of some very credible – and incredible – associates, until I got an offer from Jim Moseley which I couldn’t refuse, allowing him to take over our rank and file membership roster and combine our subscriptions with his more professionally-produced magazine “Saucer News.” To sweeten the pot, he offered to make me Managing Editor of his magazine and to pay me a weekly salary. Hell, how could I say no? I guess this sort of officially ended my career as a teenage UFOlogist, but not as a “teenage werewolf” as I went on to produce a couple of B-movie horror films under the moniker of Mr. Creepo.

I could blow by you a lengthy list of names of those who started out around the same time as I did in a quest for the truth about the “Space Brothers,” but the majority have disappeared, if indeed they even stuck around long enough to be considered part of the scene.

I do remember fondly several aspiring individuals who have passed on to some heavenly realm or other dimension, but should be acknowledged as to the role they played, both in the development of my career and in UFO matters in general. There would be Al Manak of “Flying Saucer Digest” fame, Gray Barker, my first major book publisher and the editor of “The Saucerian,” and, of course, “Saucer News” publisher Jim Moseley, the court jester of a budding field of research who managed to keep things moving and grooving, even during the periods when the saucers weren’t flying so thick and fast through our atmosphere. (Made a crank phone call when in doubt to stir up the pot and get the likes of contactee George Adamski to espouse another fanciful story, real or imagined.)

But we digress and are getting off the topic of teenage UFOlogy just a bit. In fact, those who want to pursue the beginning of my career and the smiling cherub faces of those who set up camp at around the same time are welcome to hear a recent pod cast of TheParaCast.com, hosted by a graduate of those same teen years. Gene Steinberg, perhaps a year or two older, but not any wiser, was one of the original teens now turned senior – and serious – UFOlogist, like the rest of us. In any regard, we were all pretty wet behind the Martian ears in those days, and you can rest assured that it can be said that we are still floundering about looking for answers to the same questions that perplexed us in the 1960s and Seventies.

Tim and his late friend the highly controversial John Keel, author of Mothman Prophecies and other pop items.

With the help of a section called “Saucer Club News” in Ray Palmer’s “Flying Saucers” magazine in the 1950s and 1960s, enterprising young people got together to form their own UFO clubs, or just looked to meet up with others with the same interests. That’s where such people as your humble host of The Paracast and such notables as Tim Beckley, Jerome Clark, Allen Greenfield and Rick Hilberg got their starts. In a single virtual room, Gene’s old friends will reminisce about their early work in the UFO field. The political and cultural climate, how both may have impacted early research efforts, are also debated. Guest co-host is J. Randall Murphy.

Okay, in addition to yours truly who was busy grinding out the latest news on an old fashioned mimeograph machine (a printing device first patterned by Thomas Edison), there were others putting staples into printed sheets of 8.5×11 paper to create their own zines.

mib lady and tim and grave

Tim and the “MIB Lady,” Claudia Cunningham visit the grave of Charles Fort a great inspiration in their lives.

I always felt I had the best “amateur” publication around, though crude by today’s standards, thanks in large part to Jerry Clark, who typed the master stencils for our issues, thus giving us a nearly perfect newsletter free of the typos and grammatical errors that would creep in when I tried to do the job myself.

Clark quickly went on to bigger and better ventures, eventually penning the monumental “UFO Encyclopedia” (in three huge volumes), becoming editor of Fate magazine, and winding up “at the side” of the late astronomer Dr J. Allen Hynek at the very prestigious Center For UFO Studies in Chicago. (Enthusiasts may do a search for Jerome Clark on my YouTube channel, “Mr. UFO’s Secret Files” to hear a reflective, personal account of his adventures over the ensuing decades.)

I don’t need to go into detail here regarding the others, i.e. Steinberg, Hilberg, Halperin and Greenfield since I have specifically requested they add a bit of color to this publication by outlining their humble roots, how their interests and beliefs have developed, and where we can expect to go from here (at seventy, not very far, I would assume).

And speaking of this publication, I should mention somewhere along the line – this being the first ample opportunity without backtracking and rewriting everything – that the publication you decided not to resist our highly polished pitch for – and paid your hard earned cash to obtain – is an exact duplicate of my first book that came off our mimeograph press circa 1963.

In order to defray the cost of printing our “Interplanetary News Service Report” (far from being covered by the $2.00 subscription fee), we needed to invent a way to keep our asses out of debt and pay the hyperbolic postage and shipping costs (out of hand even in those days before rampant inflation). We hit upon the concept of publishing some sort of book or booklets of around 70 to 100 pages. “Inside The Saucers” was the first project of its type. Today, my company, Inner Light – Global Communications, has around 270 titles posted on Amazon that I hope you will consider adding to your paranormal library.

As stated, we have done virtually no editing here. What you read in 1963 is what you will read here today. Sean Casteel, my editor, has maybe found a few commas out of place and an occasional typo that got past Jerry Clark’s initial eagle eye and the white out process. (Remember white out? It was used to correct stencils if you found an error, but it made such a mess that you might have been better off letting the original error go through just as it was.)

Reading over the retyped manuscript, I must say I am impressed with the tone of this work. We had some original thinking going for ourselves, and I do believe I have to take credit for having come forward with the idea that some of the flying discs being observed might be of Nazi origin (see the crudely sketched facsimile of a German built saucer within these pages).

timothy-green-beckley men in black MIB

Tim Beckley has taken the only photo though to be an authentic picture of a Man In Black.

We also tore into the reputed appearance of the Men In Black (done so before my softcover book “UFO Silencers” hit the bestseller charts) and offered researcher Ken Larson a speculative arm to espouse his theory that there was a sort of synchronicity between UFOs, the Great Pyramid and the Salton Sea (a rather bleak and barren California wetland-like watering hole that time has forgotten – and it’s no wonder why, if you care to Google photos of the Salton Sea as it exists today). There is also an inspiring section by the late George Fawcett, who at one time had the largest private collection of UFO photos, and a detailed report on saucers sightings from 1962. Perhaps the most credible case described herein involved a UFO flap at the Oradell, New Jersey Reservoir. Old timers will recall the excitement caused by UFOs that bored a hole in the ice at the Wanaquee, New Jersey Reservoir, but the incident at Oradell seems more impressive and never got any recognition. Deserves being scrutinized very carefully for its possible relevance and importance as a historical benchmark.

Today Tim co-hosts along with Tim Swartz the popular podcast. Exploring the Bizarre archives can be found on KCORradio.com and on Mr UFOs Secret Files, our YouTube channel.

Anyway, as far as I am concerned, “Inside The Saucers” is a forgotten treasure and we can’t thank Rick Hilberg enough for discovering one of the few remaining copies in his files in Cleveland and making a photocopy from which the original work was retyped most meticulously by Sean Casteel.

UNSCRAMBLING THE MYSTIQUE AND INSCRUTABLE CHARACTER OF AN UNDERCOVER ALIEN HUNTER AND WHISTLEBLOWER

By Sean Casteel

commanderxfiles

Many mysteries are revealed in the new version of the “The Commander X Files – Updated: Identifying the Real ‘Commander X’ Alien Hunter.”

Most discussions of Commander X begin with this question. Who the heck is he REALLY?

This issue is grappled with in the newly released “The Commander X Files – Updated – Identifying the Real Commander X.”

In this most recent offering of Commander X’s prolific works – as published by Timothy Green Beckley’s Inner Light-Global Communications publishing house – the cover teases that the book will identify the “real” Commander X.

Which is true up to a point. But revealing the literal, physical, human identity of Commander X would endanger not only Commander X himself but also many of the people with whom he works as he labors to bring the truth of so many government/alien conspiracies to the attention of that portion of the reading public who are receptive to his general message. The truth can set you free, but it can also lead to imprisonment or assassination, a familiar threat to those who conceal their identities and sources of information as a necessary requisite to doing business.

AN IMPORTANT REVELATION

commanderx

Who is the mysterious military operative identified only as “Commander X” in a series of pop culture UFO books?

But Commander X has sanctioned that a little information about his working methods can be uncovered at last – the fact that his writing was often corrected and made more readable by the late Jim Keith, a conspiracy theorist whose story is also a fascinating one in itself.

As Beckley writes in his introduction to “The Commander X Files – Updated,” it’s all gotten a little complicated over the years. Still, Beckley does offer some tidbits he hopes readers will find satisfying.

“I am going to tell you something,” Beckley writes, “that I have never revealed to anyone else before. Some of the books by Commander X were not written in their entirety by him. He had help.”

Beckley first addresses the accusation that Commander X is just another disinformation agent. He defends the Commander by saying that the secretive figure had always been aboveboard and honest in his dealings with Beckley himself, which is all Beckley can really know.

“True, I have never met him in the flesh,” Beckley continues, “but in the ‘old days’ we did exchange correspondence and a couple of telephone calls. I think if you have been an avid reader of the Commander X books, you will agree that he has made some striking revelations. He says he worked at Area 51. That he knows about the underground base at Dulce. Was involved in the government’s teleportation program.”

WRITING ON THE FLY ISN’T EASY

But Commander X was continually on the run from his enemies, whether they were part of the international cabal or the aliens themselves.

“Often he would submit a few pages at a time,” Beckley explains, “ramble on a bit and not complete a project he had started on in all earnest. Even as a small publisher, we had to adhere to some sort of schedule for the release of a new title. In order for us to fit into a specific time slot, we had to get the good Commander a bit of literary ‘help.’ We had to find someone who could polish up a manuscript and fill in some of the blanks. Nothing drastic, mind you, but you still can’t put out a book that is full of incomplete thoughts and not rendered in a professional manner.”

So Beckley turned to the aforementioned Jim Keith, a writer who was quickly establishing himself as a prominent conspiracy theorist.

jim keith

Jim Keith

“If you have ever been into alternative topics such as black ops, UFOs and mind control, you probably have a number of Jim’s books close at hand,” Beckley writes. “His most important works include ‘Saucers of the Illuminati,’ ‘Mind Control, World Control,’ ‘Casebook of the Men in Black,’ ‘Black Helicopters Over America,’ and ‘OK-Bomb!’ Unfortunately, tragedy struck at an early age, when Jim Keith passed away suddenly – some say under mysterious circumstances.”

Beckley draws on writer Peter Robbins to fill in some of the background. “Jim was truly a conspiracist’s conspiracist,” Robbins writes.

“He spoke at numerous conferences about conspiracies and contributed many articles to journals and magazines. He did not subscribe to the extraterrestrial theory of UFOs and viewed the phenomena as human in origin. He felt that the craft involved were entirely the product of highly classified governmental programs, employing advanced technology.”

In September 1999, Jim was attending “Burning Man,” a weeklong arts festival held annually in Black Rock, Nevada, when he broke his knee in a fall from a stage. He underwent emergency surgery in Reno, Nevada, where he resided. During the operation, a blood clot was released and entered his lung, which was the official cause of his death.

“It’s particularly tempting,” Robbins writes, “to yell murder when someone so dedicated to conspiratorial thinking, and to bringing government abuses and cover-ups to the attention of the public, dies under such freaky circumstances. If the blood clot was not the cause of his death, as some still maintain, I doubt if we will ever learn what in fact it was.”

WAS JIM KEITH THE ‘REAL’ COMMANDER X?

Beckley resumes the narrative by writing: “Interestingly enough, at about the same time as Jim Keith’s passing – whatever the cause might have been – a ‘wild rumor’ started to circulate. It was being said that Keith was in reality the mysterious Commander X. These rumors were denied by Keith himself and ‘verified’ by at least one ‘close friend’ who thought Jim had taken him into his confidence. Actually, Jim was not lying or covering up for Commander X or, for that matter, our publishing company. He was NOT Commander X. There was – and still is, somewhere out there – an actual Commander X!”

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE GOOD COMMANDER

Having dealt with these weighty facts and suspicions, “The Commander X Files – Updated” moves on to the writings of Commander X – as told to Jim Keith.

Unmarked choppers upon occasion have been seen in association with unidentified flying objects. Particularly well known is their connection to the Cash-Landrum case in 1980s Texas.

The first chapter, called “Escape to Abduction,” is a thrilling opener as it recounts the story of Commander X being warned by a phone call from a friend in the intelligence community that the Commander’s cover had been blown and he should “run like hell.” As he flees his pursuers (whom he calls “hired murderers who had been hunting me for years, ever since my defection”), he philosophizes that, “I had given it my best shot, and that was all I could do. I had done my best to warn the people of the world about the Secret Government and the gray aliens and their plans, and if I didn’t last another day, it would have all been worth it.”

Commander X arrives at a grassy overlook at the shoreline of the Pacific Ocean. Thinking he has managed to conceal himself from the human element, he is struck by the sight of two unmarked black helicopters in “whisper mode” who obviously know where he is. They are followed quickly by the appearance of an alien craft, which he calls “truly beautiful in a purely artistic way.” The craft shoots a cool white beam of light from its underside that engulfs the Commander in the most intense fear he has ever felt.

“I was about to say that that was when I blacked out, but the term isn’t appropriate,” he writes. “I whited out. I knew no more.”

A typical day in the life for Commander X? It would be a little daunting, to say the least, if that was the case. But the fact of the black helicopters working in concert with an alien ship does serve to illustrate one of Commander X’s primary operating assumptions.

“The most horrifying truth that ever confronts a researcher into UFOs and aliens,” he writes, “is the realization that, at a certain point, forces within the U.S. government capitulated to and, at least to a certain degree, joined forces with the aliens in their goal to dominate the Earth.”

A REVEALING CLANDESTINE CONVERSATION

Beware! You have been warned! Try to cross this barrier at Area 51 and you will be arrested – or possibly far worse.

As an example of the treachery of the gray aliens, Commander X presents a short Q and A with a woman he calls “Miss N,” who was employed as an executive secretary at what is known as the A.T.C. (the Alien Technology Center) at an Air Force base the Commander declines to name. The A.T.C. was a secret “sub-facility” that has been in operation since the 1960s.

“It had been believed until recently,” Commander X writes, “that this area of [deleted] was under the control of the human forces and engaged in researches positive to human aspirations, but subsequent events showed that this had been a ruse fostered by the gray aliens.”

Area 51 has become part of America’s pop culture and has even been incorporated into slick games for adults.

The Commander explains that he often travels incognito to UFO conferences around the country in order to chat with the attendees. Along with the gawkers, the debunkers, and the merely curious, he says one also meets individuals with a real knowledge of the planetary situation.

One such savvy attendee was the aforementioned Miss N, whom Commander X calls “articulate” and “perfectly rational.” He first met her at a UFO convention and she continues to be one of his informants.

“It was apparent to me after speaking with Miss N for a brief while,” he writes, “and after having her pull me aside to see the array of government identification cards which she carried in her wallet, that she knew about what she spoke. While she was terrified and was looking for someone to ease her mind about what she had witnessed at [deleted], she was also privy to an otherwise unreported instance of alien betrayal by the higher-ups in the military.”

Here are portions of Commander X’s dialogue with Miss N, as transcribed from an audio recording:

X. You alluded to a “shutdown” and a “cover-up” at the A.T.C. portion of the base in 1991? I hadn’t heard about that. Could you give me some additional details?

Miss N: I’m surprised you didn’t hear about it considering your connections to the military. I won’t pretend I’m not scared telling you about all of this. They came in, came right into the lab area . . .

X. Who came in? Military intelligence?

Miss N: It was totally transparent what happened. My God, who do they think they are? The talk had been going around that the scientists in Section G, which supposedly dealt with antigravity research from what I heard, had made a big breakthrough. We thought that was supposed to be the purpose of the center, to actually make scientific discoveries, so I guess nobody was trying to hide what they heard. But that wasn’t it at all. It was only supposed to look like that.

X. I’m not quite following you. What happened?

Miss N: Really, I can’t believe that you didn’t hear about this. I heard it was a directive, straight from the grays, that was issued to the brass at the A.T.C. An ultimatum, I guess. They terminated the scientists in Section G and they tried to cover it up by . . .

X. Terminated? Do you mean . . .

greys

Many abductees have remembered under hypnosis that they were “manhandled” while being held captive by a group of ultra-terrestrials identified as the Grays.

Miss N: You know as well as I do that I don’t mean “fired from their job.” I mean they killed them, they killed four scientists in the A.T.C. and they tried to cover it up pretending it was radiation poisoning. They sent the hit team into the compound . . .

X. Humans?

Miss N: Yes, I’m sorry to say it was humans who did the job. They came into the lab dressed in radiation suits, and the alarms were going off. I heard the shots, even though they used silencers. I heard the shouts and the crashing of equipment. It didn’t last long, maybe three minutes total. I think you understand as well as I do what the situation is. The research is a total fraud, a cover-up, and they’re keeping the scientists pretty much tethered, giving them little bits and pieces of information and technology. They know that, if we know what they know, then we can fight them, maybe even win. God help me, I hope no one saw me talking to you.

The foregoing conversation between Commander X and Miss N puts in a nutshell so much of what Commander X is all about. There is the collusion between the secret government and the hostile gray aliens, aliens who sometimes masquerade as benefactors to mankind. There is the cloak-and-dagger meeting with an informant who fears being murdered even for speaking in secret. There is an “ear witness” to an unlawful execution of government scientists who somehow drew the anger of the gray aliens by going too far with a technological breakthrough, a breakthrough they had been told they were supposed to pursue.

“I agree with Miss N’s assessment that the alien forces will stop at nothing,” Commander X writes, “to keep humanity in the dark about advanced technology, while at the same time pretending to offer it to us.”

HUMAN ROBOTS AND MUTILATED CATTLE

treaty cover small

Commander X, in his recently published book on the subject, has joined other researchers claiming that the U.S. signed a treaty with a group of aliens back in the 1950s which enabled them to abduct humans in exchange for what we are told was a superior technology.

In another recent offering from Inner Light-Global Communications, entitled “America’s Top Secret Treaty with Alien Life Forms,” Commander X discusses similar themes of a secret branch of the government’s longtime conspiracy with the gray intruders.

“Primarily, what the government doesn’t want people to know,” he writes, “is that an actual agreement was drawn up between the military and the group which John Lear and others have identified as the EBEs (short for Extraterrestrial Biological Entities). The key figures taking part in this scenario had no reason to suspect anything but the best from what they had taken into their confidence. The EBEs said they wanted to take a few humans for examination, that they had actually seeded the planet at the time of creation, eons ago, and simply wanted to keep track of their scientific experiment. For being allowed the privilege of abducting members of the human race on a limited basis, they were seemingly willing to give us scientific data which would greatly enhance our technology.”

According to Commander X, what the government didn’t realize was that the aliens planned to abduct tens of thousands of people, plant monitoring devices in the abductees’ brains, and program them with specific series of responses to direct commands. In other words, the aliens were going to take a much bigger bite out of the human population than what was agreed to and then take complete control of their victims’ unsuspecting minds.

“The EBEs – also behind our backs – began to mutilate cows and other animals,” Commander X writes, “because they wished to use their tissues to create a genetically advanced race of flesh and blood robots. When the government realized what the EBEs had in mind, and wanted to go back on their agreement, the aliens took over several of the bases where they had already installed underground laboratories.”

THE PURPOSE AT HAND

Commander X says he now ponders whether the signing of a treaty with the EBEs was a positive choice for the people of Earth.

As someone with close military ties, Commander X says he is in a privileged position to know what is going on. He feels it is his patriotic duty to reveal all he knows regardless of the consequences.

“This conspiracy has gone on far too long,” he writes, “and it surely would continue were it not for the a few brave souls who have literally risked their very lives to leak the story of the century to a public that has been left in ‘blissful ignorance.’ I can testify to the fact that this conspiracy leads right up to the front gate of the White House and behind the walls of the Kremlin; for it is a secret that all the major world powers share, but continue to keep to themselves, for fear of what the repercussions of their actions and the eventual outcome of the situation may be.”

One would certainly hope to be among the “few brave souls” Commander X refers to and do one’s part to help to break the leash the grays and their government allies hold us to heel with, to use an unfortunate “dog” metaphor. In taking up the struggle, the reader should begin by familiarizing oneself with the books of Commander X, which are published to the potential peril of many in the fields of UFO and conspiracy research. Let us hope that there is still time to undo the damage that has already been done.
