Comparison of CIA documents

Comparison of Monroe Wiretap document with declassified CIA Information Report. Source: Outpost Forum

New evidence has just been released supporting the authenticity of a leaked CIA document allegedly of wiretaps of Marilyn Monroe and her friends shortly before her suspicious death on August 4, 1962. The wiretap document revealed that Monroe was planning to give a press conference about what President Kennedy had told her of a visit to an undisclosed Air Force facility where he saw the debris of a crashed UFO. The Monroe wiretap document was first leaked in 1992 to a UFO researcher, and was made public in 1994. It has not been confirmed by the CIA to be genuine, and remains open to dispute. The new evidence that was revealed yesterday shows that the leaked document conforms closely to a standard classified Information Report form used by the CIA in 1963. Either someone broke the law by forging or using a standard CIA Information Report form for classified reports at the time of Monroe’s death, or the Monroe wiretap document was indeed a classified report about a wiretap of Monroe and her friends.

This is what the alleged CIA wiretap document, dated August 3, 1962, had to say about Monroe’s knowledge of Kennedy and UFOs:

Rothberg indicated in so many words, that she [Monroe] had secrets to tell, no doubt arising from her trists [sic] with the President and the Attorney General. One such “secret” mentions the visit by the President at a secret air base for the purpose of inspecting things from outer space.
2. Subject repeatedly called the Attorney General and complained about the way she was being ignored by the President and his brother.
3. Subject threatened to hold a press conference and would tell all.

The discoverer of the CIA intelligence report is Lee Nicholson from the Outpost Forum. In his April 14 forum post he described what he found after visiting the CIA’s electronic reading room:

During the process of researching this article I spent several hours at the CIA’s electronic reading room looking at documents from the 1960s, in an attempt to find examples of similar typeface to that seen in our questioned document …. I discovered a CIA Information Report dated 18th March, 1963 with the subject heading: “Projected Soviet Space Launchings” which was declassified on the 16th of July 2011. This authentic CIA information report is an almost perfect match in style and presentation for the leaked ‘Marilyn document’.

Nicholson went on to describe new facts emerging from a comparison between the declassified CIA document and the Monroe wiretap document:

In fact a close comparison gleans some important new facts. Firstly, we can now see that both documents use the exact same form letter or template information report. Presumably the author would have a stack of these ‘blank’ forms which would be placed into a typewriter to add the relevant information before classification and distribution. We can also see that both documents contain the same secondary typeface, which is in fact Courier type commonly used on IBM typewriters in the 1960s.

Nicholson then described a series of parallels between the declassified 1963 Information Report and the leaked Monroe wiretap document. His conclusion was that they closely matched suggesting that the Monroe document is genuine.

The implications of the Monroe wiretap document being genuine are astounding. It reveals that only one day before her death, Monroe was planning a press conference that would reveal what President Kennedy had confidentially told her about UFOs. The fact that the CIA was monitoring her and wiretapping her phone calls, directly implicates the CIA in her suspicious death and the cover-up of information concerning UFOs.

Building on Mars

NASA’s Curiosity Rover has again transmitted intriguing pictures from the surface of Mars. On April 9, a photo was discovered that appears to show a set of buildings on top of a hill. On Earth, such building locations typically indicate strategic planning to give optimal views of the countryside to protect the inhabitants from attack. Did the Curiosity Rover photograph buildings on Mars that make up a base of unknown origin? If so, the buildings appear to have been constructed for strategic purposes in a Martian terrain that is hospitable to surface life contrary to what NASA has informed the public about Mars atmosphere.

The photo was uploaded in a YouTube video by an anonymous user, Streetcap1. The source for the photo is NASA’s JPL website. It would be a simple matter for the Curiosity Rover to travel to investigate the strange structures. Yet this is very unlikely according to UFO Sightings Scott Waring who wrote in a blog post today:

This discovery was made by Streetcap1 of Youtube. He found some structures on a hill in one of the Mars Curiosity rover photos. Look at the above photo and pay special attention to the white shiny walls on top of the hill. The walls are white on one side due to reflection and dark shadowy on the other side due to the suns angle. Is NASA trying to move the rover away from these obstacles to prevent the public from learning about life on Mars? SCW

According to NASA, Mars atmosphere is 95% carbon dioxide with only a trace amount of oxygen 0.13% – not enough to sustain life on Mars. Yet a series of Curiosity Rover photos have shown what appear to be small animals such as squirrels, lizards and ducks on Mars. If the Rover images do show such animals surviving on the Martian surface, then Waring is correct that NASA is actively preventing “the public from learning about life on Mars.”

The latest Curiosity Rover photo follows another released on April 3 that appeared to show an artificial light on the Mars surface. Media interest grew quickly forcing NASA scientists to publicly explain it. NASA’s explanation of a “vent-hole light leak” or a “glinty rock” was widely ridiculed.

On April 8, testimony was released by a whistleblower who alleges that a military base exists on Mars with the goal of protecting five human colonies from indigenous Martian life. He claims to have served on the military base for 17 years. Fantastic as such claims seem given what is officially known about Mars atmosphere, the latest Curiosity Rover photo showing what appear to be buildings, does make claims of secret military and civilian bases on Mars plausible. Further Curiosity Rover images showing small animal life forms along with strange lights on the Martian surface serve as further evidence of life existing on Mars surface, and of NASA actively covering this up.

NSA Leaked documents and UFOsThe use of a faked Facebook server by the NSA to spread malware is the latest in a string of leaks from the Edward Snowden cache of NSA files that has led to senior Intelligence officials scrambling for ways to defuse another troubling revelation. As documents continue to emerge at a steady rate, a pattern is now becoming clearer. While much of the general public and international media accept the authenticity of the leaked documents, NSA officials and their national intelligence partners refuse to directly acknowledge their authenticity. Yesterday, according to an article in The Intercept by Ryan Gallagher, one of the journalists working with the Snowden NSA files, public authorities again issued evasive responses not acknowledging any wrong doing. Earlier, on February 24, The Intercept released a document from the NSA’s British equivalent that contained slides of UFOs used for training covert operatives in on-line operations. No explanation was given for why and how the UFO images were being used. Was this clear evidence that UFOs were known to be real interplanetary objects, or simply a convenient way of obfuscating other issues being discussed online? This suggests that among NSA files yet to be released, there may be more relating to UFOs. This raises the intriguing possibility that one or more of the upcoming NASA file releases may make public official knowledge of extraterrestrial life, and a cover-up approved by senior national security officials in the U.S. and elsewhere. This would lead to an indefinite period where the existence of alien life becomes widespread public knowledge, while senior officials give evasive responses that neither negate nor confirm the authenticity of the documents in question.

Here is how Gallagher summarized the NSA’s response to the latest leak:

In response, the NSA has attempted to quell the backlash by putting out a public statement dismissing what it called “inaccurate” media reports. The agency denied that it was “impersonating U.S. social media or other websites” and said that it had not “infected millions of computers around the world with malware.” The statement follows a trend that has repeatedly been seen in the aftermath of major disclosures from documents turned over by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, in which the NSA or one of its implicated allies issues a carefully worded non-denial denial that on the face of it seems to refute an allegation but on closer inspection does not refute it at all.

Essentially, the strategy being pursued by the NSA and its partners to leaks identifying its policies and practices is to respond with a “carefully worded non-denial denial.” In NSA or its partner responses – intelligence doublespeak to put it simply – there is neither direct acknowledgement nor disavowal of the authenticity of the leaked document. It is then left to the public and mass media to draw their own conclusions and analyses from the documents.

The practice of not acknowledging leaked classified files is not surprising. Senior Intelligence Community officials in the U.S.A. generally take the position that until documents have been officially declassified, viewing or discussing them by any public official is a violation of standard security protocols that could lead to the revocation of one’s security clearance and even criminal charges. This creates problems for intelligence community workers who are officially not allowed to read classified material to which they have not been approved for access, even though it is appearing in the mass media.

When it comes to the issue of extraterrestrial life, there are other reasons why public officials would be reticent to publicly acknowledge the authenticity of any leaked NSA files. If a government agency or corporation was to go on the record to being part of a decades long cover-up of extraterrestrial life, then they would be open to class action law suits to parties injured by such a cover up. In particular, individuals that have been directly involved in the UFO abduction phenomenon – hundreds of thousands according to some estimates – could now sue agencies, corporations and officials involved in such activities. The threat of class action law suits is the Sword of Damocles hanging over the head of official extraterrestrial disclosure. That is probably the biggest reason why official disclosure won’t be happening any time soon. However, there may still be “public disclosure” in the form of “a non-denial denial” as Gallagher describes the now familiar response by the NSA and its partners to the Snowden document leaks.

Consequently, we may very soon witness the following scenario. Future document releases from the Snowden cache of NSA files, or some other whistleblower source, reveal unambiguously that extraterrestrial life exists and that official agencies have been cooperating in covering this up. The NSA and its partner agencies issue the now familiar response to past leaks that neither acknowledges a document’s authenticity nor refutes it. To put it simply, we would have public disclosure of alien life through leaked official documents, yet there would be no “official disclosure” acknowledging this. An intriguing possibility by all means, but certainly something that may well happen, and could last for an indefinite period of time.

Space-Top-Secret-ActivitiesEver wondered what kinds of highly classified military programs are happening in outer space?  Well if you happen to know something about one of them then chances are that it’s an Unacknowledged Special Access Program (USAP) and it’s a criminal offense to reveal anything about it to others. That creates a problem for the field of astropolitics which is dedicated to studying activities in outer space.

As a field of study that began with the launch of the Soviet Sputnik satellite in 1957 and subsequent treaties ratified by space faring nations, astropolitics has grown into a multidisciplinary science studying a wide array of political, legal, economic and social issues related to publicly acknowledged activities in outer space. Yet when it comes to USAP’s there is precious little that is known about them by astropolitics scholars other than they exist and may impact “acknowledged” space activities in important areas of interest.

This week, a novel approach to this problem was proposed in a respected peer reviewed academic journal on astropolitics that went live online on March 3. USAPs are a problem better left to the field of exopolitics which uses a very different approach to understanding what is happening in outer space.

 The latest edition of Astropolitics: The International Journal of Space Politics & Policy contains a paper titled, “Astropolitics and the ‘Exopolitics’ of Unacknowledged Activities in Outer Space.” For those that don’t yet know, exopolitics is broadly defined as the study of extraterrestrial life and its political implications, which raises much controversy among space scientists since most believe hard evidence is yet to be found for alien life.

This has led to exopolitical scholars developing a range of social scientific tools to examine the available “soft” evidence that extraterrestrial life has been discovered and has been the subject of highly classified military/corporate programs for as much as seven decades. This soft evidence largely comprises whistleblower and first hand testimonies based on direct personal experiences. These testimonies are both hard to substantiate, yet difficult to completely dismiss. Something to be expected if the testimonies do genuinely involve USAPs.

This is where exopolitics offers astropolitics scholars a way of resolving the dilemma of what to do about USAPs. Many space scientists believe that in the absence of hard evidence, it is a waste of time speculating about what is happening with USAPs and the impact on space. Yet not to examine available soft evidence would mean that USAPs would continue indefinitely without any risk of exposure even though they may be significantly impacting on important space activities. The possibility that the impact may violate space treaties is an important area of concern.

The exopolitics approaches offers a way out of this dilemma since it can examine the available soft evidence in a way that does not compromise the discipline of astropolitics which would continue to focus on hard evidence concerning publicly acknowledged space activities. As a complement or sub-field of astropolitics, exopolitics offers a means of gaining insight into USAPs without turning astropolitics into a speculative field of study.

Whether the proposal to incorporate exopolitics research into the astropolitics discipline succeeds or not, it is significant that the term “exopolitics” has now officially entered the academic lexicon. This suggests that at least some space scientists are interested in learning more about USAPs in Space. The day when astropolitics scholars begin learning about all activities in outer space, acknowledged and unacknowledged, may be arriving a lot sooner than expected.

Note: The article, “Astropolitics and the Exopolitics of Unacknowledged Space Activities” is available to subscribers of the Journal of Astropolitics here. An earlier version, the “Author’s Accepted Manuscript,” is available to non-subscribers here.

UFO photo in the Art of Deception, p. 35

UFO photo in the Art of Deception, p. 35

Among the leaked Snowden National Security Agency (NSA) documents, the first to explicitly involve the UFO issue has just been released and is currently generating much media scrutiny. The 50 page document is a powerpoint presentation titled “The Art of Deception: Training for a New Generation of Online Covert Operations,” and was authored by the British equivalent of the NSA, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). The document was the subject to an in-depth story released this week by Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who first worked with Edward Snowden to release to the world official NSA surveillance of the general public, and foreign government officials.

The leaked document details how the NSA is working with its “Five Eyes” partners in Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to train its operatives in online covert operations. Greenwald’s article exposes how the NSA and its Five Eyes intelligence partners encourage a range of psychological warfare tools to discredit any targets discussing sensitive national security information. In the “Art of Deception” document three of the 50 slides show images of UFOs – one of which dates from 1950.

The leaked document reveals a clear connection between online covert operations by the GCHQ and its intelligence partners on the UFO issue. It is smoking gun evidence that the international intelligence community is training its covert operatives to deceive the public on a range of sensitive national security issues including UFOs.

Greenwald released the GCHQ authored document in a story titled, How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations.” He begins his story:

One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction. It’s time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents.

Greenwald goes on to summarize the contents of “The Art of Deception” document, authored by a previously secret unit of the GCHQ called the “Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group” (JTRIG):

Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics: (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets; and (2) to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable. To see how extremist these programs are, just consider the tactics they boast of using to achieve those ends: “false flag operations” (posting material to the internet and falsely attributing it to someone else), fake victim blog posts (pretending to be a victim of the individual whose reputation they want to destroy), and posting “negative information” on various forums.

Greenwald concludes:

… these GCHQ documents are the first to prove that a major western government is using some of the most controversial techniques to disseminate deception online and harm the reputations of targets. Under the tactics they use, the state is deliberately spreading lies on the internet about whichever individuals it targets, including the use of what GCHQ itself calls “false flag operations.”

The “The Art of Deception” document is now available online and reveals the wide array of psychological warfare tools used by the NSA and its Five Eyes partners for covert online operations.

The “Art of Deception” has three powerpoint slides that show UFO photos dating as far back as 1950. Greenwald did not discuss the three UFO photos in his story. The fact that the photos take up three of the 50 slides of the “Art of Deception” document indicates that the UFO issue is covered in some detail in the training of online covert operatives in the use of psychological warfare techniques.

This is not a surprise to any familiar with a 1953 report issued by a CIA convened panel investigating reports of flying saucers, as UFOs were widely known at the time. The Robertson Panel delivered a report, the Durant Report, that recommended debunking the flying saucer phenomenon and the possibility of extraterrestrial life, for national security reasons. The Report stated:

The “debunking” aim would result in reduction in public interest in “flying saucers” which today evokes a strong psychological reaction. This education could be accomplished by mass media such as television, motion pictures, and popular articles.… Such a program should tend to reduce the current gullibility of the public and consequently their susceptibility to clever hostile propaganda.

The references to a “strong psychological reaction” and “gullibility of the public” when it comes to UFOs show the emphasis on conducting psychological warfare operations to deceive the public when it comes to the UFO issue. A national security policy that continues to the present day as is clearly reflected in “The Art of Deception” document.

The first of the three UFO images dates from Redbud Illinois in April 23, 1950 (see top). It was taken by a part-time photographer who took the photo while traveling through the area. It is included in a list of the best UFO photos ever taken. Despite its clarity, it was not included in the list of photos examined by the Robertson Panel that met less than three years later. The second image is screenshot of a video taken by Arturo Robles Gil in Mexico in 2005.

Art of Deception UFO p37The third image was taken near St Austell, Cornwall, England by a holidaymaker.

While there is no text accompanying each of the three images, they appear in a section titled “Strand 3: Influence and Information Operations.” This indicates that the training of intelligence operatives involves sophisticated tools of psychological warfare when it comes to shaping public perceptions on issues such as UFOs. The Art of Deception is smoking gun evidence that the UFO issue is covered in the training of covert intelligence operatives in how to discredit internet authors and articles discussing sensitive national security information.

Fars News Agency story on Nazi Space aliens running USA

Fars News Agency story on Nazi Space aliens running USA

On Monday, the Washington Post released a most unusual story with the headline: “Iranian news agency says the U.S. is secretly run by Nazi space aliens.” Though the author, Max Fisher along with the Washington Post Foreign Staff, qualified the headline with the word, “Really,” it was clear that this was breaking new ground for the Post. The Washington Post’s Foreign Staff were giving a fresh perspective to the word “Foreign” by seriously examining claims by the Iranian media that the U.S. was being run by space aliens. Normally, such claims are found in conspiracy web sites and the alternative media. Now a bastion of the Fourth Estate was examining such claims with gusto. Yes, Fars News Agency, Iran’s semi-official news outlet, was indeed claiming that the U.S. was run by space aliens, and this merited a response by no less than the Washington Post. The floodgates were now opened. The U.S. and other world media dutifully followed the Post’s lead and began running their own stories. Forbes, Jerusalem Post, UPI, Huffington Post, The Blaze and other news sources were now covering the Iranians’ stunning claim. Was it all Iranian propaganda or is there truth to the claim that a group of space aliens are secretly running the world’s last remaining superpower?

To begin with let’s turn to the original story by the Fars news agency that appeared on Sunday with the title: “Snowden Documents Proving “US-Alien-Hitler” Link Stun Russia” Fars began the story as follows:

A stunning Federal Security Services (FSB) report on the nearly two million highly classified top-secret documents obtained from the United States Department of Defense (DOD) run National Security Agency-Central Security Service (NSA/CSS) by the American ex-patriot Edward Snowden states that this information is providing “incontrovertible proof” that an “alien/extraterrestrial intelligence agenda” is driving US domestic and international policy, and has been doing so since at least 1945.

The only source for Fars stunning claim was a story by Sorcha Faal on the conspiracy website, Whatdoesitmean.com. Faal has a notorious reputation for sprinkling patent falsehoods with genuine information and is viewed suspiciously by many conspiracy theorists. Nevertheless, Fars went on to reference an interview given by Former Canadian Defense Minister, Paul Hellyer to Russia Today as confirmation for its story. In the interview, Hellyer cites his own research and experiences supporting his claim that the world has been visited by extraterrestrials for thousands of years, and that U.S. leaders began being visited by aliens shortly after the Second World War.

Hellyer cited Charles Hall, a former US Air Force airman, who claims to have personally witnessed high level cooperation between a race of extraterrestrials he called the “Tall Whites,” and very senior Pentagon officials at Nellis Air Force base in the early 1960s. Hall has written four books about his experiences after he first went public in 2004. Fars gave a new twist to Hellyer’s and Hall’s claims by claiming that the Tall White extraterrestrials were behind the stunning technological rise of Nazi Germany. The Tall Whites therefore qualified as Nazi space aliens, and with the collapse of Nazi Germany, then began cooperating with the U.S. Over the decades of cooperation since, the Tall Whites had gradually taken over key elements of the U.S. national security establishment. According to Fars, all this was the final conclusion reached in the top secret study conducted by the Russian state security organization, the FSB (successor to the KGB), after researching Edward Snowden’s leaked NSA documents.

For those such as this writer, the information first released by Hall in 2004 is not new. Many of Hall’s claims along with supporting evidence was covered in my 2009 book, Exposing U.S. Government Policies on Extraterrestrial Life. What is new, however, is that a former Canadian Defense minister, has publicly endorsed Hall’s claims, and now major news media have begun seriously covering Hellyer’s vocal support for the veracity of Hall’s claims.

According to Fisher and the Washington Post Foreign Staff:

Yes, this story is highly entertaining, as are many of the bizarre conspiracy theories proposed by official or semi-official news agencies in authoritarian states. But there’s also a more serious undercurrent here. A worldview that sees the U.S. as an evil hegemonic force so irrationally driven toward global domination that it must be run by space aliens is not a worldview that is predisposed toward negotiation or accommodation.

Fisher’s conclusion is that claims of Nazi space aliens running the US is propaganda by Iran’s hardline factions to rule out cooperation with the U.S. in current nuclear negotiations. On the other hand, by giving the claims of the Fars News Agency serious coverage, the Washington Post was doing more than simply reveal the intransigence of Iran’s hardline factions. It was giving serious news coverage to claims that have been on fringe conspiracy websites for years.

The US national security apparatus has been allegedly negotiating and colluding with space aliens for years according to multiple sources cited in Exposing US Government Policies on Extraterrestrial Life. If some of these sources are accurate, it is feasible that U.S. sovereignty has been seriously compromised. Now the Washington Post has made such controversial claims legitimate material for the Fourth Estate to examine in light of current nuclear negotiations between Iran and the world community. Whether propaganda, truth, or a mixture of both, the Washington Post’s examination of Fars News Agency claims of the U.S. being run by Nazi space aliens has sparked an international debate.

KSBW TV covers Salinas crop circle with Comet ISON in background

Screenshot of KSBW TV coverage of Salinas crop circle interpretation. Comet ISON depicted in upper left background.

A crop circle that appeared 11 miles southeast of Salinas, California on December 28, 2013 contains three coded messages according to renowned crop circle researcher, Dr Horace Drew. According to Dr Drew, a retired molecular biologist who worked at Caltech and Australia’s CSIRO, one of the coded messages was to be vigilant about an upcoming astronomical event. The next message referred to a date in the near future when an astronomical event is to occur by July 8, 2014. The third and most startling message was that comet ISON was a space transportation system.  Taken in their entirety, the three messages appear to be encouraging people to watch the skies for an upcoming astronomical event featuring remnants of ISON that will in fact be an extraterrestrial event of some kind. If genuine and correctly interpreted, the Salinas crop circle is a vindication for those claiming that Comet ISON was no comet at all, but one or more objects under intelligent extraterrestrial control with a specific mission for the inner solar system and Earth.

The December 28, Salinas crop circle attracted widespread attention due to its unusual timing and location. It appeared well after the crop circle season in southern England had concluded, and most crop circle researchers had quietly withdrawn to write summaries of the 2013 summer season. According to an email by crop researcher Paul Jacobs, who began investigating the Salinas crop circle:

No one in the area has made claim to it and the locals had no knowledge of it or its construction. I estimate it would have taken three men working in daylight conditions doing 9-hour shifts for nearly 9 days to complete this pattern. My gut feeling is we have an important event on our hands here.

More tellingly, a security firm was hired by an unknown agency to begin guarding the crop circle on the same day it was discovered. According to Linda Moulton Howe from Earthfiles.com:

On Saturday morning, December 28, 2013, Echelon Security in San Jose, California, was hired by an agency to guard the intricate pattern in the 2 to 3 foot high barley in the Chualar field east of Salinas. This fact was confirmed the afternoon of December 31, 2013, by staff writer Phillip Molnar at the Monterey County Herald.

Howe described an account by Jeff Krause, of how the security firm deployed four security trucks with personnel to keep people out of the crop circle:

I arrived at the site near 7:15 AM Pacific on December 31, 2013. When I got there, four security trucks were parked on the road outside the circle to keep people from going in. They were very adamant about not letting anybody on the field property.

It would be odd for a farmer to hire and pay for four security trucks and personnel to protect a barley field. The clear implication is that an unnamed U.S. agency saw the Salinas crop circle as having national security implications and funded Echelon Securities to keep the public away. So what was the message that the crop circle contained and may have sparked a national security response by an unknown U.S. agency?

The Salinas crop circle had a circular design with a number of complex geometric patterns that appeared to be coded messages. The main breakthrough came when a Braille language interpreter identified some of the crop patterns as being text book characters from the Braille language. The Braille message was quickly interpreted as a series of numbers and letter  – (192)-(192)-2-(192)-1-(192)-(192).

According to Dr Drew, when the British search engine 192.com is used, the code can be translated as: “The blind will see, and those who seek will find.” If interpreted correctly, the message here was that something will shortly happen that will be so unambiguous, that even die-hard skeptics will see what they previously denied. For others, the upcoming event will be vindication for what they have been seeking.

The second message was identified by Dr Drew as an outer code featuring three tall poles accompanied by numbers using Morse code. The message was 3-space-3-space-1. Dr Drew interpreted this as referring to an event timed to occur in the near future: “we should go around the “polar clock” by three full turns (days, weeks, months?) until some “event time” is reached.” According to a retired US Navy Flight Officer, Captain Mark Wood, the date referred to by the number 192 in the main coded message is July 8, 2014, which is 192 days from December 28. Significantly, the alignment of planets on July 8, matches the crop circle configuration of celestial bodies.

The third message was an inner code again using Morse code according to Dr Drew. This message was the most startling since it appeared to refer to comet ISON. He translated the code as: E-T B I-S-O-N S-T-S. Here is how Dr Drew interpreted the code:

 One interpretation of this cryptic message might be: “E T  B(e)” or “extra-terrestrials exist”.  Then “I-S-O-N (comet)” is an “S-T-S (space transportation system)” like for the NASA space shuttles (see  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STS-1).

So could the Salinas crop circle refer to an upcoming extraterrestrial event connected to the remnants of Comet ISON, which was no comet at all?

Comet ISON received widespread scientific interest as a possible Comet of the century, but fizzled out shortly after its perihelion on November 28, 2013. After perihelion astronomers quickly concluded that the comet had disintegrated. Yet comet ISON made a remarkable recovery surprising many scientific observers. It was only temporary, however, and ISON soon disappeared again. Most astronomers concluded that it had perished after all. All that remained was small comet debris that temporarily lit up after perihelion giving the illusion that the comet had survived.

There were others, however, who claimed that ISON was in fact an artificially targeted object designed to interact with the inner solar system in a specific manner on certain dates. Others went further to claim that ISON was a small fleet of extraterrestrial vehicles on a specific mission designed to educate Earth’s inhabitants about extraterrestrial life. These startling analyses of ISON seemed to be quashed by ISON’s disappearance after perihelion. Now the Salinas crop circle suggests that these analyses of ISON may have been right all along. We will have to wait and see in the months ahead, and the possible July 8 date, whether an astronomical event occurs that settles once and for all the true nature of comet ISON and whether an extraterrestrial intelligence was behind it.

[Update: 1/7/14 – The tech company Nvidia announced on Sunday night that it made the Salinas crop circle as part of a marketing campaign to promote its latest chip. What does this bode for its message – human contrivance or a deeper agenda is being played out? The situation reminds me of Richard Hoagland’s dictum, “the lie is different at every level.”]

1 Title-page-imageRobert Kennedy, the former Attorney General, conducted his own private investigation of his brother’s murder fifty years ago, and reached a startling conclusion. The assassination was conducted by a rogue faction of the CIA. Despite his power as Attorney General, Kennedy was unable to expose the killers and ultimately suffered a similar fate almost five years later during the 1968 Presidential elections.

Robert Kennedy’s conclusion was revealed for the first time by his son in an interview by Charlie Rose on January 11, 2013 in Dallas, Texas.  Robert Kennedy, Jnr., when asked whether his father believed it was the Mafia, or Cuban exiles that assassinated his uncle, responded as follows:

 KENNEDY: I think my father was fairly convinced at the end of that that there had been involvement by somebody …

ROSE: Organized crime, Cubans …

KENNEDY: Or rogue CIA …

So who was behind this “rogue” CIA faction, and was it truly acting alone?

According to the final installment of a four part Special Edition series from ExoNews TV, the rogue CIA faction was in fact controlled by the CIA’s counterintelligence chief, James Jesus Angleton. Angleton was following a secret set of directives given to him by a classified UFO control group called Majestic-12, in case anyone in the Kennedy administration threatened to expose their operations.

 President Kennedy’s 1963 efforts to end the Cold War, cooperate with the USSR on joint space missions, and share classified UFO files with the Soviets, created a showdown with Majestic-12. The trigger was Kennedy’s agreement with Soviet Premier, Nikita Khrushchev, on November 12, 1963 on space and lunar cooperation. The agreement led to Kennedy issuing a Top Secret memo the same day instructing John McCone, the CIA Director, to share the CIA’s classified UFO information with NASA, which in turn would share the information with the State Department, other government agencies, and eventually the Soviets.

Kennedy’s explosive Top Secret memo to McCone was relayed by William Colby, then Chief of the CIA’s Far East Division, to James Angleton in CIA counterintelligence. In response to Kennedy’s memo, Angleton would implement “Project Environment”, a cryptic assassination directive crafted by former CIA Director, Allen Dulles, in late 1961, if Majestic-12 operations were threatened with exposure. The trigger for implementing the directive was a demand by the Kennedy administration for the CIA to release its classified UFO files to NASA.

 Robert Kennedy’s startling conclusion from his own private investigation of his brother’s murder is a powerful endorsement of evidence that a powerful “rogue” faction from the CIA was responsible. The fourth and final segment of the ExoNews TV Special Edition series clearly identifies the “rogue” CIA faction, the key people authorizing its activities, and who was ultimately responsible for the assassination of President Kennedy.

Just before the start of his first term on January 20, 1993, President-Elect Clinton made a strange request to close family friend and lawyer Webster Hubbell: “If I put you over there in justice I want you to find the answer to two questions for me: One, who killed JFK. And two, are there UFOs.”  According to Hubbell, “Clinton was dead serious.”  The key to unlocking the mystery of President Kennedy’s assassination and a possible UFO connection lie in events that occurred 18 years earlier in post-war Germany.

In the summer of 1945, John F. Kennedy was a guest of Navy Secretary James Forrestal in a post-war tour of Germany. Kennedy personally witnessed technological secrets that have still not been disclosed to the general public. These secrets stemmed from technologies that Nazi Germany had acquired from around the world, and were attempting to develop for their weapons programs. The advanced technologies stunned the military government running the U.S. zone of occupied Germany. How did the Nazis develop them? The answer according to the father of German rocket design, Herman Oberth, shocked U.S. military officials. The Nazis had help from “the people of others worlds” – some of the technologies were extraterrestrial in origin.

 In searching for answers to who killed President Kennedy we need to start with the death of his mentor, James Forrestal in 1949. Forrestal became the first Secretary of Defense in 1947, a position he held until March, 1949. Forrestal was a visionary who thought Americans had a right to know about the existence of extraterrestrial life and technologies.  Forrestal was sacked by President Truman because he was revealing the truth to various officials, including Kennedy who was a Congressman at the time. Forrestal’s ideals and vision inspired Kennedy, and laid the seed for what would happen 12 years later.

After winning the 1960 Presidential election, Kennedy learned a shocking truth from President Eisenhower. The control group set up to run highly classified extraterrestrial technologies, Majestic-12, had become a rogue government agency. Eisenhower warned Kennedy that Majestic-12 had to be reined in. It posed a direct threat to American liberties and democratic processes. Kennedy followed Eisenhower’s advice, and set out to realize James Forrestal’s vision. The same forces that orchestrated Forrestal’s death, opposed Kennedy’s efforts at every turn. When Kennedy was on the verge of succeeding, by forcing the CIA to share classified UFO information with other government agencies on November 12, 1963, he was assassinated ten days later.

Kennedy’s Last Stand is a book about how two American Presidents, Eisenhower and Kennedy, confronted “black world” operations outside of the control of “white world” constitutional government representatives. Kennedy’s Last Stand reveals how JFK tried to realize his friend’s and mentor’s vision of a world where humanity openly knows about extraterrestrial life. The book reveals for the first time, the principal government officials responsible for denying that vision, and orchestrating the assassination of President Kennedy.

Kennedy’s Last Stand: Eisenhower, UFOs, MJ-12 and JFK’s Assassination by Michael E. Salla, Ph.D., becomes available at Amazon on October 22, 2013 – one month before the 50th anniversary of the JFK Assassination.

Area-51-map-with signCIA has admitted for the first time that Area 51 exists by officially acknowledging it by name in a document released through the Freedom of Information Act. Major media networks today gave wide coverage to the CIA admission that Area 51 is real. The CIA document was released to Jeffrey Richelson, a Senior Fellow at the National Security Archive, George Washington University who requested further information on the history of the U-2 Spy Plane. In the document, the CIA acknowledges that Area 51 was chosen due to the suitability of the Groom Lake dry sand flat for testing secret spy planes. What the CIA document didn’t mention was another dry lake bed nearby, Papoose Lake, which is only 12 miles away. According to whistleblowers, this is the location of an even more secretive facility called S-4 where a variety of saucer shaped spacecraft are tested and reverse engineered. This is the facility named by Bob Lazar in 1989 who briefly worked there, and disclosed all to George Knapp in a series of interviews for Las Vegas television station KLAS. S-4 is where you will find alien spacecraft and even live extraterrestrials according to Lazar and other whistleblowers.

According to the document released by the CIA, The Central Intelligence Agency and Overhead Reconnaissance: The U-2 and Oxcart Programs, Area 51 was discovered in April 12, 1955 during an overflight and landing at Groom Lake located near the Nevada (Atomic) Test Site. The document authors, Gregory Pedlow and Donald Welzenbach, wrote that no less than the U.S. President officially approved the building of the secret facilities at Area 51: “President Eisenhower also approved the addition of this strip of wasteland, known by its map designation as Area 51, to the Nevada Test Site.”

According to Richelson, the official acknowledgment:

… marks an end of official secrecy about the facts of Area 51. It opens up the possibility that future accounts of this and other aerial projects will be less redacted, more fully explained in terms of their presence in Area 51.

What Richelson doesn’t mention, along with the authors of the CIA document, is another facility nearby at Papoose Lake. This is where the whistleblower Bob Lazar claims to have been taken after flying to Area 51 from Las Vegas on a JANET flight – an air shuttle for Area 51 workers. Lazar claims to have personally seen up to nine different flying saucer type craft, some of which were alien in origin. Lazar worked on the propulsion system and was paid by an unacknowledged branch of the US Navy called the Department of Naval Intelligence. Lazar eventually decided to go public, and become a whistleblower. His interviews with George Knapp from KLAS-TV became world famous, and put Area 51 on the map for UFO investigators.

More recently, in May 2013, a retired CIA agent going by the pseudonym ‘Kewper’ gave video testimony before six retired members of the US Congress about an incident involving President Eisenhower requesting information and access to the S-4 facility in 1958. It appears that in the three years or so since the building of Area 51 and the adjacent S-4 facility, that the managers of S-4 decided to withhold information about what was happening there. Eisenhower had to threaten to invade S-4 with the US First Army before its managers decided to share classified information with him. According to the CIA agent, the S-4 facility housed a number of extraterrestrial space vehicles along with a captured live alien that he personally saw. His CIA boss, along with other agents, even got to directly interview the live alien. In 1997, a whistleblower using the pseudonym Victor, released a video of a live alien being interviewed at S-4.

The official acknowledgement by the CIA that Area 51 exists is welcome advance in getting the CIA to release information about secret aviation projects near Groom Lake. However, the testimony by Lazar, Kewper and others suggests that Area 51 is not where the most classified projects take place. Area 51 is a convenient cover for even more secretive advanced aviation programs housed at S-4 at the nearby Papoose Lake. The CIA is only telling a half-truth that you won’t find any extraterrestrial technologies or alien beings at Area 51 according to Lazar and others. It is at the nearby S-4 facility next to Papoose Lake where alien spacecraft and their pilots can be found.
