Contactee Gloria Lee


I wrote pieces for this book put out by the late Tim Beckley (Mr. UFO) about female contactees. It's available on Amazon.

UFO Magazine Cover


Cover of UFO Magazine. Painting by my husband, James Rich. That's me on the deck of a friend's house on the beautiful McKenzie River in Oregon. See the little UFO in the sky? 

That was when I was writing my Orange Orb column for the magazine. Nancy and Bill Birnes were the editors. Both very nice and supportive people. I miss that magazine.

Recent Book Finds

The local St. Vinnie's had a half off sale on books a few weeks ago. I scored!
I mean, Demon Children! Who wouldn't?

Classic 1970s paperback (copyright 1962) More about the author Brinley lePoer Trench
Can't resist anything on Nessie. Nicholas Witchell, copyright 1974, this paperback edition 1989

At a dollar, why not. It's for research you know. Otherwise, wouldn't have bothered.

Found in the files: Kurt Glemser, Alien Contact

Still going through the "room of doom" where boxes and stacks of books and other ephemera await my organizing. In this chaos I found this self-published booklet by Kurt Glemser, a Canadian UFO researcher who published a few titles in the 1970s. I don't know much more than that:

There isn't an introduction, ISBN, or any information regarding publication except "Galaxy Press, 489 Krag St., Ontario N28m 1L2, Canada.

I did find a source on-line that gave 1973 as the publication date.

One of his publications: Glemser co-wrote The Men in Black with Robert Beneschan.

Amethyst, Princess of Gem World

I used to be a mild comic book nerd. Collected comics of female characters, and supernatural vibed characters, like The Shadow, Dr. Strange, X-Files, etc.

Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld, was one I collected. I know I still have these somewhere -- I hope. Haven't been in the comic book realm for a long time, so was surprised to find that this issue, depending on condition of course, is now selling between $400.00 (!) and $125.00. Time to go into my room full of boxes and search for my comics.

Draco the Dragon Man

I'm a fan of cheesy cover art in just about all genres,  especially vintage books and albums. I couldn't resist the cover so I picked it up; with a title like Draco the Dragon Man, (Cyril Donson,1974) I couldn't resist.

I expected the book to be bad, and wow, I was right! The writing is bad, as well as lurid. Which is to be expected. The sex scenes are so ridiculous.  Donson, the author, loves TO WRITE LOTS OF WORDS AND SENTENCES ALL IN CAPS for some reason. Comma abuse is rampant as well as illogical. Oh, and exclamation points! All OVER, the, place! Everyone, is either shouting! Or YELLING, they all seem MAD! All the time! ALL the time!

But I was interested in the topic: underground reptilians. Reptilians as aliens, overlords, half human half beast, as monsters, as intelligent beings living in secret beneath our cities -- all fascinate me. This story however is your basic somewhat thin monster/horror story.

Cyril Donson, British writer, wrote westerns, sci-fi and even a book of poems. The latter which, I can only guess at that one.

Ghost Hunters Find: Scholastic Books

A few years ago I bought this Scholastic Ghost Hunter "kit" at our book fair. I'd forgotten I had this - - found it while clearing out my bookshelves, my summer project.

Front of box: Ghost Hunter

The thing is kind of cheesy, I think it came with a little thermometer but that was gone when I opened the box. There was a plastic votive holder and battery operated candle, which still works.

Ghost Hunter Box: back side

I think there was a little book inside but if so, it's gone. Also included, cards of "ghosts" in various haunted locations. Some cards have text on the back. One example:

"St. Augustine, Florida: "Everytime I go to St. Augustine, I see this little boy sitting in the tree. this started when I was 13!"

The photos are fun but many of them look phony to me. 

RMS Queen Mary Bridge Long Beach, California: "Person seen at the helm. Who is this ghost?"

Graveyard: St. Augustine: "Need to do research on who the girl might be."

 While a lot of the images look phony to me, you all know I certainly believe ghosts are real! As to the Queen Mary, while I've never been there, I know many people who have, and they have had many sightings of ghosts there.

Bookstore Find

Found this today at the St. Vinnie bookstore section. Which is just about the best used bookstore in the area.

"Easter Eggs", Moby Dick, and The X-Files

So much is out there about the limited return of The X-Files -- I can't possibly add anything anymore insightful or different. All I will say is that the three episodes shown so far have been fantastic. Classic X-Files, just excellent.

In the third episode, amongst the humor and "throw back" X-Files vibes, were "easter eggs" as refers to the many inside jokes and references in that episode. For example:

Every Easter Egg in X-Files Were-Monster Episode -- Vulture: Daggoo! Finally, we need to talk about Daggoo, the cute canine Guy Mann adopts and Scully later sneaks out of the animal shelter. This continues Morgan's trend of referencing Herman Melville's time-honored Moby-Dick. In the novel, Daggoo is one of the harpooneers on the Pequod, the ship captained by the tyrannical Ahab. In one of the Morgan-ghostwritten scenes for season three's "Quagmire," Scully likens Mulder to Ahab, and compares the agent's quixotic quest to Ahab's obsessive search for the great white whale. (
One I noticed that the article didn't mention: when Fox Mulder is in Scully's motel room, standing by a fox head mounted on the wall.

It has been wonderful to have The X-Files back! Even if it is for a very limited run.

Man From U.N.C.L.E. Movie

Recently saw the new Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie. Loved it, an excellent homage to the genre. Fun, classy, and the earrings! Also great soundtrack. Directed by Guy Ritchie, and all that you'd expect from a Guy Ritchie film.

The movie is based on the television series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. which I watched faithfully as a kid. I even joined the fan club! And in proper spy mode, I used a different name -- an alias, you know -- which for some reason infuriated my mother, as I remember. 

From Ghost Hunting Theories: What Your Favorite Horror Movies Say About You

Fun, but also accurate I thought, at least for me. My favorite genre seems to ghosts and paranormal themed movies. I'd add one thing to her conclusions about monster movies, while I agree, I'd say for me it's often I have some empathy for the monster and want to know more; what made it the way it is, etc. and hope that instead of just gleefully killing it something else can be done. On the other hand, sometimes you just can't reason with big scary monsters!

Ghost Hunting Theories: What Your Favorite Horror Movies Say About You: Horror movies really come down to three categories. We could push it and say suspense/thriller and SciFi can also be horror, but let’s just talk straight-out horror genre—found on the aisle at the video store. Take a look at your collection and see which type you seem to have the most of: (Ghost Hunting Theories)

Saucer People Trading Cards: Men in Black, #23

This is Men in Black, card #23, from the Saucer People boxed trading card set from Kitchen Sink Press, 1992. The set has thirty six cards, with comic book style illustration on front, and information about the UFO event or researcher on the back.

"Some believe them to be government agents, others think they are Saucer People."
I love the objectified female in distress; fearful of the Men in Black who are, apparently, being quite rude to her boyfriend. Tight red dress, frightened… who will rescue her? Or will the Men in Black get her?

The info on the back of the card has nothing to do with the image on the front; the story on the back tells us of George Cook, head of the Pennsylvania NICAP group, who had several run-ins with MIB in 1967.

UFO Magazine - UFO Magazine Blog - Frank Feschino And The Incident At Strange�Creek!

The prolific and well versed Alfred Lehmberg, UFO Magazine contributor, gives us some interesting news concerning one of UFO's famous cases, the Flatwoods Monster encounter:
UFO Magazine - UFO Magazine Blog - Frank Feschino And The Incident At Strange Creek!: Well, the 2014 iteration of the New Year got off to a fast start for researcher Frank Feschino, Jr! � He received a phone call from still another witness in West Virginia who claimed, and convincingly, that he may had seen the so-called "Flatwoods Monster" in Braxton County back in September of 1952, too. Verily and meat appears to be on that bone. For Frank, it was a new first-hand witness to personally come forward and speak to him in several years. Frank called me almost immediately and explained the series of events.
He explained that this current "Monster" sighting report, according to the eyewitness, did not occur in Flatwoods at the time Mrs. May and the boys saw it on the Fisher Farm at 8:00 pm. Moreover, it did not even occur on the night of September 12, 1952!

Random Fortean Mag of the Day: Fortean Times, May 1999

FT May 1999
pg 39 FT

I have about ten of those plastic magazine holders full of Fortean Times, UFO Magazine, Nexus, Fate, Strange, and other esoteric mags. A huge job going through the "room of doom" full of books and materials, all related to UFOs and general Fortean subjects. Here's a random issue I pulled: Fortean Times, May 1999. Next job: organizing all those issues! Or, and, I might start selling them off; haven't decided on that yet. In the meantime, it's been fun looking through them.

One of the articles in the May 1999 issue was Loving the Alien by Nigel Watson, artwork by Fabrice Parme, Alex Howe. The lead-in to the piece:

"UFOs were once thought to be probing our planet with a view to invasion and colonisation. Today's UFO occupants are more likely to be probing our bodies and minds. Nigel Watson doesn't think much of their chat-up lines but marvels at Their pulling power."

General Zod & the Ashtar Command | TDG - Science, Magick, Myth and History

From Red Pill Junkie at The Daily Grail:General Zod & the Ashtar Command | TDG - Science, Magick, Myth and History. With video clips.
"To any seasoned UFO buff, this should immediately you of the infamous Vrillon transmission, broadcast on the Hannington transmitter of Southern Television in the United Kingdom for six minutes at 5:10 PM on Saturday November 26, 1977. Vrillon claimed to be a representative of the Ashtar Command, and his message is consistent with the typical 'space-brotherly' tone of peace & a call to disarmament.

Although many people consider it to be nothing but a hoax, to this day the identity of the perpetrator —who at that would have needed considerable technical expertise to hijack the signal of a TV station— has never been discovered." ~ rpj, The Daily Grail

New Facebook pic

I changed my Facebook profile picture the other night to this:

I thought it a perfect image to represent me. Love its retro look and the time era fits, and the U.F.O. book in her hand, what could be better? No idea though about the photo's history. Thanks to UFO cinema expert Robbie Graham of Silver Screen Saucers,  who commented on FB that the image is from "...the 'Steve Canyon' TV show (1959), Episode 'Project UFO', which was censored by the Air Force." I need to know more about that! Googling this I came across some very interesting links. YouTube doesn't have much on this specific episode, but I did find this:


Shepherd Johnson also left a comment about the woman in the photo. She is Julie Adams, "...who starred in 'Creature from the Black Lagoon'" one of my favorite monster movies, a classic of course, from 1954 -- the year I was born.

Nick Redfern's 'Faking a Flying Saucer Crash'

Intriguing UFO history item, on a book written in 1948 about a crashed flying saucer. The author, Bernard Newman, also wrote books on "...more than a hundred books on subjects including real-life espionage, global politics and current affairs."
Faking a Flying Saucer Crash | Mysterious Universe: Of one thing, however, we can be certain: less than a year after the events at Roswell, an author who had numerous, high-level, official connections and who had written extensively on espionage issues, wrote a sci-fi novel that specifically linked the worlds of crashed UFOs, faked alien autopsies, and bogus flying saucer tales promoted by military officials. (Redfern, Mysterious Universe)
Which is pretty interesting, don't you think?

Pilot Recalls Seeing Discs

From The Oregonian, July 9, 1947. Follow link in article for full article. h/t to Paranormal News for link:
Pilot Recalls Seeing Discs - Paranormal News -- Your Source for UFO and Paranormal Related Information: Rankin, who is recovering from an old back injury received in an automobile accident came to Portland over the weekend to spend the summer. He saw the 'silver saucers' over Bakersfield, California, June 23, while lying on the lawn sunbathing, he told the Oregonian.

"I hesitated to say much about them," Rankin said, "Until I noticed all the Hullaballoo in the papers. I puzzled over their strange shape for awhile and finally concluded that they were the Navy's new XFSU-1 flying flapjacks, which are thin and round, with twin propellers and glubby tail.

Only One XFSU-1 Built

The navy and manufacturer have announced officially that only one such machine was built and that it never left Connecticut.

The Ectoplasmic Flying Saucer | Interesting Articles, Links and Other Media

Fascinating, this blog post about medium Alec Harris, and meetings with flying saucer people during a session. The following words from the other world visitor sounds typical of messages received by contactees of that era. (An observation, not a judgement on the validity, or non, of such encounters.)
The Ectoplasmic Flying Saucer | Interesting Articles, Links and Other Media: A tall Spirit materialised wearing a mask which covered his whole face leaving only his eyes visible. This figure approached Hyman and taking him by the hand led him to the cabinet. Then in a serious voice he said: "I want to tell you that flying saucers do exist, although your world is sceptical of any reports of such. But I say to you that they will one day be an established fact, and will arrive on your planet before man destroys himself; but the time is not yet ripe."

And, as with many of these types of encounters (including Mothman,etc.) pre-knowledge of events concerning the witness is had by the non-human entities.

(There was another South African contactee: Elizabeth Klarer, who lived on the planet Meton with Space Brother Akon and had a child together.)

John Galliano Outfit Shocks Jewish Community | Style Crush - Yahoo! Shine

John Galliano Outfit Shocks Jewish Community | Style Crush - Yahoo! Shine: Other than his attendance at Kate Moss' 2011 wedding and a stint in rehab for alcoholism, we haven't seen or heard much of him since the scandal. But on Tuesday night, Galliano was photographed leaving a building in New York dressed as a Hasidic Jewish man—long jacket, hat, and curly side locks—on his way to Oscar de la Renta's Fashion Week show for which he collaborated on. And according to the New York Post, Jewish community leaders were offended.

From UFO Digest: 'UFOs The True Story of Flying Saucers 1956'

UFOs The True Story of Flying Saucers 1956: UFOs The True Story of Flying Saucers 1956
Dirk Vander Ploeg's picture
By Dirk Vander Ploeg - 1 month 2 weeks ago

Suggested by Brad Steiger

Enjoy this drama-documentary, based on the experiences of Al Chop, a reporter who served as press liaison for the Pentagon during its investigation of UFO's from 1947 to the early 1950s.

Miller, Soule, and Tremayne provide the voices for the narrated portions of the film. Although the movie contains only two brief film clips to serve as photographic evidence of UFO's, the producers build a good case based on the credibility of certain UFO witnesses (airline pilots, military personnel, radar operators, etc.).

On a more subtle level, director Winston Jones pulls off a clever trick; he begins the film as a pure documentary, but he gradually modifies this approach and focuses on reporter Al Chop's personal involvement in the UFO investigation. Chop slowly changes from UFO skeptic to UFO believer

Branson Balloon Hoax

Idly looking through UFO: The Continuing Enigma, published by Reader's Digest, 1991. Among the contributors in this volume: Peter Brookesmith, Hilary Evans, Jenny Randles, John Rimmer, Dennis Stacy.

Page 55: Physical Fakes:

April Fool's Flying Saucer
"Early morning commuters driving on a freeway outside London, England, on March 30, 1989, soon after 5:00 a.m. could scarcely believe their eyes. Hovering above them was a glowing spacecraft. Extraterrestrials were also visible aboard the craft. Soon the police were inundated with calls from people saying what they sad seen.

This alien visitation proved no more sinister than British entrepreneur, and keen balloonist, Richard Branson, rehearsing a stunt for an April Fool's Day prank. The spacecraft was a saucer-shaped hot air balloon, 100 feet wide, complete withflahsing lights. The "aliens" were Branson and two co-pilots dressed as Martians."

LIZARD PEOPLE IN PORTUGAL – An Invasive Mind Scan Carried Out by Reptilians — World Mysteries Blog

Beginning in 1974, Ken Bakeman was abducted by Reptilians.

LIZARD PEOPLE IN PORTUGAL – An Invasive Mind Scan Carried Out by Reptilians — World Mysteries Blog: A pair of rather short (about 5′ tall at most) Reptilians with pale cream-yellow colored scales abducted me in Oporto, Portugal in November of 1974. Several tactics used in this abduction were what I have come to realize, with the benefit of decades worth of hindsight, to be hallmarks of the Reptilian manipulation and capture methodology. I suppose that a person sufficiently educated and experienced regarding these stratagems and maneuvers might be somewhat more at an advanantage in evading entrapment by these scaly beings. But considering the extremely strong psychic energy and, I believe, technological advantages applied in the subterfuge, Reptilians as opportunistic ‘predators’ have a decided advantage over humans. The following gives an overview of the tactics and methods typically used in abducting humans. Note: in my abduction event in Porto four out of five of these techniques were used, with the orb being the only one not in evidence.

Location. Montargil, Ponte do Sor, Portugal
Date: February 6 1980 Time: 11:00 a.m.

A 55-year old farmer, Mr. Pavao, had left his farm taking his sheep to the fields. At about 1100A he heard a noise, at the same time his dog panicked and he felt something happening behind him. He turned and was surprised to see two 8-feet tall humanoids standing close to him and staring at him. The humanoids were described as very strong looking, and dressed in gray suits. Their faces resembled humans except that the eyes and skin were different.

Beckley Images 9/4/12 - Photos - Coast to Coast AM

Tim Beckley was a guest on C2C not long ago. Here are some images he shared with C2C on their site:Beckley Images 9/4/12 - Photos - Coast to Coast AM

I appreciated what Beckley had to say regarding contactees; that they are a part of UFO history, and well, that's that. I'm paraphrasing but I like Tim's views on UFOs - the good, bad, weird, "silly" and all of it. It's all a part of the UFO phenomena, and trying to pretend the parts you don't like don't exist or are to be ignored seems self-defeating.

UFOs - scientific research: "Communion" - Whitley Strieber's original book

Dear readers,

My last post took a look at US author Whitley Strieber's new book, 'Solving the Communion Enigma: What is to come." As I was very young when the book "Communion" came out, I thought I had better read it. I located a copy in a second hand book store, and have just read it in one session. As I would think that a number of younger blog readers will be in the same position as me; that is will not have heard of the book, let alone read it, I thought I would provide some context, for you, to his latest work.

Eros & Ufos: The Repressed Sexual Aspect of Mystical Experiences (Part 2) | Intrepid Blog

 RPJ compares and contrasts sexual attitudes of socieities in general with UFO culture.

The sexual aspect of UFO (and paranormal/supernatural) encounters is a huge one, an obvious one, and yet, it seems to me we continue to be squeamish around the topic.  Coincidentally, right before I went over to visit The Daily Grail site, where I found the link to Red Pill Junkie's Intrepid post (linked below) I was thinking of a specific and highly personal experiences of my own that I don't think I'll ever share publicly. That's how the title of one of my blogs -- Octopus Confessional -- came about. I was originally going to use that blog to discuss experiences, my own and those of others, that are of that 'squemish" variety. I found I wasn't ready to do that, and the blog ended up a paranormal-conspiracy, para-political blog.

Anyway, great post at Intrepid, enjoy!

Although my initial exploration of the links between Sex and the Saucers took a very abstract and esoteric approach, there have been previous researchers who opted for a more um, literal view. Otto Binder (1911-1974) who started his career writing pulp fiction and eventually became one of the most important writers for the Golden Age of comics, developed a huge interest in UFOs by the end of his life. He wrote a Saucerian trilogy saga —What We Really Know about Flying Saucers (1967), Flying Saucers Are Watching Us (1968), & Mankind –Child of the Stars (1974)– and as their titles imply he was one of the early proponents of the Ancient Astronaut Theory even before Von Däniken brought the topic to the mainstream radar. Binder based his theory of a direct Extraterrestrial intervention on 2 pieces of ‘evidence’:

A number of people have asked for additional information on the so-called voice from space that blacked out the BBC's Southern TV station for 5 1/2 minutes at 5:12 pm GMT on November 26, 1977 while the following message was delivered slowly and deliberately in a calm authoritative tone. The message interrupted a news bulletin being read by Ivor Mills. The BBC has come up with no positive solutions to the interruption, simply calling it a hoax. MARCEN obtained the message transcript from the BBC for the benefit of the members. The full text, which is reproduced here, is not believed to have been published in the United States previously.

Nick Redfern:DARKNESS IN THE DESERT...: Saucers in 47: "A Very Highly Classified Experiment"

DARKNESS IN THE DESERT...: Saucers in 47: "A Very Highly Classified Experiment" [thanks to Lesley at The Debris Field for link.]
In early July 1947, Brigadier General George F. Schulgen, Chief of the Requirements Intelligence Branch of Army Air Corps Intelligence, met with Special Agent S.W. Reynolds of the FBI with a view to determining if the Army Air Force could solicit the assistance of the Bureau on a regular basis in its investigation of the flying saucer mystery.

General Schulgen advised Reynolds that, “every effort must be undertaken in order to run down and ascertain whether or not the flying discs are a fact and, if so, to learn all about them.”

The foremost thought on General Schulgen’s mind was that the saucers were man-made in origin. He confided in Special Agent Reynolds that, “the first reported sightings might have been by individuals of Communist sympathies with the view to causing hysteria and fear of a secret weapon.” It was for this reason that the Army Air Force sought the FBI’s assistance.

Spying on the Saucer Writers | Mysterious Universe

From Nick Redfern:Spying on the Saucer Writers | Mysterious Universe

On a fairly frequent basis, I get asked if I think there could be one or more “secret government files” on me. Well, as someone who writes about UFOs in terms of what officialdom knows about the subject, I can never say for sure that such files do not exist. And, one of the reasons for this is that the Freedom of Information Act has clearly demonstrated that certain authors of books on the UFO subject have indeed been secretly watched by officialdom – even to the extent of having their books reviewed by government agencies!

Although not widely known, the FBI has on various occasions taken more than a passing interest in monitoring publications on the UFO subject. To illustrate this, June 1966 saw the first printing by Lyle Stuart Publishers of Frank Edwards’ book, Flying Saucers – Serious Business. By October of that year, Edwards’ book was in its third printing.

Daily Grail Blog: What ever happened to Bob Lazar? | TDG - Science, Magick, Myth and History

smapdi's blog at The Daily Grail asks: What ever happened to Bob Lazar?

Lazar now lives in the southwest, New Mexico or Arizona, I believe. I find Bob Lazar's UFO Area 51 legacy, juxtaposed with the fact he is now a military contractor, extremely interesting.

Nick Redfern: FINAL EVENTS: George Adamski: The Occult Connection

Nick Redfern on the Collins Elite, subject of his book Final Events, and a connection between contactee George Adamski, Desmond Leslie, and Crowley...FINAL EVENTS: George Adamski: The Occult Connection. Leslie helped author Adamski's 1953 book Flying Saucers Have Landed. Redfern writes:
This was a story greatly expanded upon in a 1953 book entitled Flying Saucers Have Landed that Adamski wrote with an Irish aristocrat named Desmond Leslie.

It was this Adamski-Leslie connection that got the members of the Collins Elite all worked up and bent out of shape.

One of the former Collins Elite staffers told me that the group quickly became concerned by the working relationship that existed between Adamski and Leslie, and for one very stark and eye-opening reason: Desmond Leslie had a long and rich link to the world of the occult, including - in a roundabout way - Aleister Crowley himself.

For more, visit Nick's Final Events blog.

I like what Nick has to say about paranormal, Fortean researchers and the development of theory. Redfern writes that he's often asked what evidence is there to support the Collins Elite demonic-UFO theory?
Well, as far as can be ascertained, they didn't find any evidence. Rather, they developed beliefs relative to such matters (which often happens in paranormal-themed situations when hard evidence fails to materialize and the researcher either becomes frustrated by the quest for the truth, or has an emotional need to gravitate to one idea or another - something which often results from weakness and insecurity, or an arrogant and ego-driven conclusion that one is right, despite being unable to prove it).

Philip Coppens: Killing Kennedy

One of my favorite researcers, Philip Coppens, on the John F.

Coppens has his own ideas about that, as you'll find when you read the article.

Jack Brewer on The UFO Trail, Leah Haley, Abductions,MILABS, Contactees, Satanic Rituals . . .

Jack Brewer at The UFO Trail does it again: The UFO Trail: The Leah Haley Case: The Pink Elephant and a Sample of Comments
At the very least, we should give serious consideration to the extent the intelligence community manipulated public perception while authoring UFO and abduction lore. Intelligence interests have been well documented and demonstrated in circumstances such as the Maury Island fiasco and the supposed contactees of the 1950's.

However, as long as we largely refuse to regularly address the Big Brother pink elephant in the room of ufology, truth and objectivity will continue to suffer. This reaches far beyond Leah Haley or any other given case.

Brewer shares some of the comments (including some of my own) left at his blog on his posts about Leah Haley and the possible involvement of government mind control programs. Some readers, like myself, find Brewer's writings on this subject a good thing, while others are downright hostile.

As I've said before, I don't know if Leah Haley is right. But I think there's a lot -- a lot -- there, in terms of government involvement of abduction events.

Gloira Lee (aka Lee-Bryd)
I've said this in the past about the contactees. I'm not the only one of course; but even now, the idea that the contactees were heavily manipulated by humans, and not aliens (so much) isn't considered enough, in my view. Nor is the historical context followed. What I mean is, if it started with the contactees, the manipulations continued and morphed into the "alien abduction" scenario. I hinted at this a bit in my introduction to Tim Beckley's recent reprint of contactee Gloria Lee's book Why We Are Here. (I believe Lee did tap into something supernatural but was tragically manipulated by human forces as well.)

At the same time, all this covert government activity surrounding aliens and human contact doesn't negate the reality of literal aliens. Or, what we call aliens.

Jacque Vallee wrote of hidden human manipulators in his books, Messengers of Deception the classic, but today, it seems this idea is ignored, or even, as Jack Brewer points out, met with downright hostility. Nick Redfern has addressed similar ideas of human elements deep within the government as cause for, or in partnership with non-human entities in his book Final Events. And interpretations of secret experiments as UFO related, such as Roswell, in his Body Snatchers in the Desert: The Horrible Truth at the Heart of the Roswell Story It's a thin line to walk, to consider the reality of government intentionally creating (or co-creating) alien, UFO events in secret, to believing there are underground bases containing vats full of human body parts stirred by aliens as uniformed soldiers stand by.

I keep going back to the news decades ago of Satanic abuses. The media was full of stories of individuals who insisted they had, upon regressions, recovered memories of horrific abuses, all within a Satanic setting. Animal sacrifice, human sacrifice, sexual and physical abuse of children and adults, devotion to Satan, these memories were buried until they erupted under regression. Then those tales faded away, and we began hearing more and more of alien abductions. Time lines overlap; the 1961 Barney and Betty Hill case is considered the "first" alien abduction and predates the Satanic abuse events, as do the earlier contactee encounters.  But I've often wondered if the controllers were experimenting with different themes to deliver their experiments. Satanic rituals here, alien abductions there. Maybe that's ridiculous, maybe not. Maybe there's some truth there, maybe not. As I've said, it's possible a cover was needed so different settings were auditioned. It's possible they decided the alien thing worked for a long list of reasons, including the hide in plain sight idea. In other words, if there really are aliens, (and I think there are) why not further employ disinfo by using the very thing so many -- including the government responsible for these distractions -- deny exist?

I have to add, that for those who've experienced these things, they are very real. They are real. (I'll refer to my own missing time experiences: whatever, whoever, caused those missing time episodes in my life, the fact remains: my memory was fucked with, and it wasn't by me. That's real. That's wrong, whether aliens did it or humans.) Because there might be the possibility these events were manipulated by humans, or even completely created by humans (which I doubt), that is no doing of the experiencer. We have to remain absolutely sensitive to, and respectful of, the witnesses. We have to really listen to their stories, and not just wait for places where we can insert our own ideas of how things are.

Nick Redfern: Contactees or Secret Agents?

Nick Redfern at Mysterious Universe: Contactees or Secret Agents? | Mysterious Universe

One of the most outrageous, but certainly intriguing, theories surrounding the early years of the Contactee movement suggests the Contactees were in the clandestine employ of the United States’ Intelligence community.

Their secret role: to spread outlandish – and utterly fictitious – tales of trips to the Moon and Venus with long-haired aliens. Their purpose: to make the entire UFO subject seem ridiculous, and to bury the truly unexplained and mystifying reports amongst a mass of largely unbelievable tales of cosmic contact. As controversial as it may seem, however, when we look for connections between the Contactees and elements of U.S. officialdom, we do find them.
Redfern is correct that there's a "U.S. officialdom" connection with the contactees. It is outlandish, but I think there's something to the idea that many researchers have ignored, or at least, not considered seriously.

Nick has some interesting information in his article that supports the theory the government had some involvement in the contactee experience.

However, -- though I'm not expert at all and this is just my speculation -- I think there was some kind of truth to what the contactees were saying; some non-human energy was present, manipulating experience, and the government knew about it, in turn doing their own manipulation of contactee communications. Not to say I think contactees literally went to Venus or, that the entities that said they came from Venus, Mars, or Jupiter really did come from those planets. But I do think non-human intelligences were present and responsible for much of what the contactees said they encountered. With help from government, human agencies.

John A. Keel Quote

No, the real truth lies in another direction. The contactees from 1897 on have been telling us what they were told by the ufonauts. The ufonauts are the liars, not the contactees. And they are lying deliberately as part of the bewildering smokescreen which they have established to cover their real origin, purpose, and motivation. ~ John A. Keel,  Trojan Horse.

Rights and Raelians: Court Rules Filmmakers Lied About Raelians

On Binnall of America, for my Trickster's Realm column:Rights and Raelians. A federal court recently ruled that two film makers intentionally lied in their documentary about the Raelians. I've been following this story for years, since 2005 when they started their campaign against the Raelians. Now, I'm not a particular fan of the Raelians but that is beside the point. UFO Land has ignored this story, mainly because the Raelians are an embarrassment, I suspect. But that fact doesn't change the religious and political fanaticism of Abdullah Hashem and his partner Joseph McGowen and their libel and slander.

All that's beside the point; Hashem's attack on the Raelians wasn't due to altruistic reasons, but a religious attack. He was deeply offended by the Raelians free spirited sexual views and their interpretations of God/god. That's all it was ever about. One religious fanatic's attack. Last week a court ruled in favor of the Raelians:

U.S. Federal Court Rules Filmmakers Lied About Raelians - PR Newswire -

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A California federal court has found that two vocal critics of the Raelian Movement ( fabricated stories about the organization. The court awarded undisclosed damages to the Raelians, including the return of film footage.

Abdullah Hashem and Joseph McGowen appeared on Fox News and other media outlets in 2005-2006, saying they saw people recruited through sex and that acts of pedophilia took place at a Raelian seminar in 2005.

Raelians have claimed for years that the two men lied about what they reported, and they have now been legally vindicated. On September 15, the federal court issued a final judgment against Hashem, who was also ordered to return all film footage taken at the seminar to the Raelian Movement. A copy of the ruling is available upon request under:

United States District Court for the Eastern District of California: International Raelian Movement v. Hashem (Case No. 2:08-cv-00687-GEB –DAD).

My original blog posts appeared on an old Angelfire blog I had that no longer exists but I did find a draft in my files from 2005:

Raelians Sue
Long time readers of the OrangeOrb know I'm no fan of the Raelians. Their emblem is offensive: a swastika. Oh, not a neo-Nazi white brotherhood kill the Jews and gays and blacks and everyone else un-tall, blond and blue eyed, but still. They've gone through a couple of changes with the design, making it New Agey, all lotus like and mingled with light and love and the ancient meaning of the swastika, but, still . . .

Old UFO Magazine Cover

I've been going through and rearranging a room -- fondly called The Room of Doom, or Hell --  we use as a study/library. Such a mess! But getting better. I found this issue of UFO Magazine from 1987. vol. 2, no. 2. Pretty groovy cover!

I remember this very well. It was the first issue of UFO Magazine I bought. I found it at Eugene's then only New Age bookstore, called Perelandra. They were on east 11th, right by the University, and a few doors down from a movie theater. The bookstore later moved to the downtown mall about a mile or so west, and the theater closed down. (Now we have only multi-plexes at the two shopping malls.) Later, Perlandra closed its doors, which was sad. We still have one New Age bookstore in this town; Stargate, though, on my last visit which was a few years ago, they didn't have much in the way of UFO material.

About the bookstore Perelandra: I remember they used a different spelling, but don't recall how they spelt it. I think it was Perlandra, but not sure.  I do remember asking the owner about it once, she told me they had spelled it that way intentionally and changed the spelling because of a numerology reading she had done regarding the bookstore.

This issue has a Bigfoot-UFO article and a letter to the editor from John Keel!:

Thank you for sending your fine magazine. BUT your point of view is very restricted. Try presenting some of the many, many facts of this bewildering and fascinating subject.
I wish you very success with this project. If there is any way i can help you here in the Big Apple, don't hesitate to ask.
                                                               John A. Keel
                                                              New York, N.Y.

I also remember thinking that some day, I would love to write for a magazine like that. And now I do!

Nick Redfern has a new blog:NICK'S FORTEAN PIC(S) OF THE DAY. It's a great idea! Lots of interesting things over there. Here's a blurb from his blog about the new site:
Back in 2008, the late Mac Tonnies - a good friend and brilliant writer and thinker - established a little-known blog titled Things That Look Like Flying Saucers.

As its name suggested, Mac's blog was a humorous look at a whole variety of down-to-earth "things" that, when photographed, resembled UFOs.

Well, I recently thought, in the same spirit that Mac created his blog, why not establish a light-hearted blog - also of a photo-driven nature - that offers a bit of a departure from the grim-faced, oh-so-serious side of Forteana?

So, for what it's worth, here's my attempt! Like it or not!

Each day promises a new photo...Or, maybe several...

Going Back A Bit In Time – Revisiting The Early Days Of UFOlogy And The Contactee Movement | UFO Digest provides video proof of ufos, alien abduction and the paranormal.

At UFO Digest, Sean Casteel reviews Tim Beckley's reprint of two stories of two female contactees, Dana Howard and Gloria Lee. (I wrote the intro for the Gloria Lee book.) As Sean points out, there are UFO researchers who reject the contactee era as embarrassing nonsense, or, as he puts it, attack Tim Beckley for exploitation:
Though Tim Beckley believes his motivations should be seen as altruistic, to others they are controversial even appalling. There are still some purists in the field who believe that “contactee” is a dirty word. Yet all things considered, Beckley is doing the UFO community a huge service by reprinting hard to find books from the 1950s, books written by early UFO experiencers who were the first to claim contact with the aliens after the initial sighting by Kenneth Arnold in 1947 that started it all.

Vanguard to Venus

1957, sci-fiction book Vanguard to Venus, about a ship stopping off at the Moon where, the jacket flap tells us, the "Venutians" appear:
"An interception was made by the Venutians which promised both treachery and ultimate disaster, a promise which almost became reality."
I haven't read the book, but I'm curious as to see how the Venutians are depicted. Different than the usual benign and wise space brother/space sister Venusians we're familiar with from many contactee encounters. Of course, the contactee stories were non-fiction/biographical events; this book is fiction.

1981 New Zealand MIB Encounter

Thanks to Nick Redfern who sent me the following link to this story of a UFO and MIB encounter from 1981. It happened in New Zealand, in 1981. After the witness saw a UFO, with his family, he was visited by a strange man:

Flying object' followed family | "introducing himself as Mr Wright, an 'investigator' from Christchurch and dressed in a musty suit, he warned them not to contact or approach the object, Mr Thew said.

The man's behaviour was peculiar: he drank a cup of boiling tea in one gulp, read a page by scanning from bottom to top and knew the name of their pet dog before it could be told to him."

"The Washington Post Makes Fun of Military Officers" on A.D.

On the excellent After Disclosure site, Bryce Zabel writes about the Washington Post's descion to send, not an investigative serious reporter, but one who writes the light, humorous pieces, to the September 27 National Press Club's conference, where retired military personnel spoke about national security issues, and UFOs, at nuclear sites. The Washington Post Makes Fun of Military Officers: An Open Letter to the Washington Post

For some reason, this topic is still considered trivial by just about everyone outside of UFOlogy. Read the comments on uber-skeptic boards like the JREF on this issue, where nit picking over terms is considered more important than the fact of Unidentified craft in our skies. They choose to focus on the irrational idea of ET, rather than the idea our own government or other human forces, are responsible for much of UFO activity, experiments on civilians, etc. This is not to imply aliens are not real, about, or also responsible. Regardless of aliens or humans, the fact is, this has been happening and pretending it isn't real is the irrational reality.
