Gary Bekkum and Serpo: A Drama Queen Cannot Exist Without an Audience


binocularsTry as I might, I can never seem to get Gary Bekkum and his overdramatic boy-spy blog out of my life.  Just when we, at RU, think that he’ll be content publishing the same old baseless government conspiracy theories over and over – he throws a real doozy out there…a major faux pas manipulation of the truth that simply can’t go unfixed. As an organization that prides itself upon a “passion for truth,” such an outright abortion of the truth can’t go unanswered. What is this terrible thing? It’s a recent article Gary published at the American Chronicle, a cheesy small online publication that publishes user content from anyone who’s willing to write an article for free for them. In Gary’s recent article titled, “Spy Games Revealed: Spies, Lies and Polygraph Tape,” Gary weaves a very odd web – quoting out-of-context snippets from select email conversations between two friends who happen to be either current or former U.S. intelligence employees.

In this long, volumous article, Gary attempts to paint scammer Rick Doty as a “spy” of sorts – simply a scape goat as part of some sweeping government cover-up operation. The tale he paints is certainly dramatic (he is a drama-queen after all), intriguing, and unfortunately overwhelmingly baseless speculation that turns out to be nowhere near the target.

There are a few things people should know about the incident Gary refers to, where Ron and Green appear to be discussing the “SERPO” hoax.  The facts are as follows.

– Ron Pandolfi did not volunteer his time or attention to the hoax – he was contacted and drawn into it (possibly intentionally) by Dr. Green.

– Ron conducted an unofficial, brief query regarding a few alleged DIA names that Dr. Green told Ron Pandolfi might be relevant and important.

– In the course of trying to ascertain where these names Dr. Green received came from, Ron Pandolfi interviewed Rick Doty via email.

– All of the above activities were done out of a personal, private request from his friend Kit Green – otherwise Pandolfi would have had no interest in this drama

Why did Kit draw his friend Ron into the drama? Your guess is as good as ours – although it could have something to do with the fact that those who were creating and pushing the Alien stories known as “Serpo” were making every attempt possible to make it appear as though the sources “comfirming” the story were official and legitimate.  In his usual tell-only-half-the-story manipulation, Gary Bekkum finishes his article with the following quote:

kit“I need you to know that Col. Weaver has contacted me and said he is Gene Loscowski. Her [sic] referred in detail to the meeting you and I had with Barry Hennessey about Rick’s polygraph records … He quoted what I said, what you did, and the circumstances of the meeting to convince me of who he was. He also told me the essence of the SERPO story was true.”

Everyone reading this article should pause at this point.  Consider what Gary Bekkum is attempting to do…add legitimacy and relevance to the old “Serpo” releases and the sources behind them. Why would someone want to do such a thing – especially after so many of the sources have already been revealed as nothing more than sock puppets for a small group of men who have absolutely no official clearances for this sort of information? Rick Doty…Ernie Kellerstrass…seriously, folks.

To provide readers with the rest of the story, RU will provide Ron’s response to Kit’s claim above, which Gary quoted in his article completely out-of-context.  As you are reading this full quote (we’ve neither redacted nor modified any part of this), please make note that Ron is responding to claims about DIA/visitors from Kit – no one else. It should also be noted that the claimed “Col Weaver” contact was via email, and Kit had not confirmed that the sender was really who he claimed to be.

Kit explains to Ron how these “contacts” related to Serpo typically work:

“I suspect more details are not worthy of email. That said: 100% of all communications have been by email. I have no actual human contact whatsoever…they didn’t show up, ever, for the pre-arranged meetings…not one person: Gene, Paul, Herb, Smith, Joseph, Lackey.

I have erased all the emails…every one. However, I suspect there must be a way to retrieve them from my hard drive or the University Server. if someone knows how to do that, with proper identification, they are welcome to sit in my office and get them. The FBI wasn’t the least bit interested…but then, they never are.

The following was one of Ron’s responses to the strange story that Kit was telling him (Ron also confused “Gene” as a woman – the source is actually portrayed as a man…inconsequential of course because Gene isn’t really “Gene” in the first place):

Subject: RE: PRIVATE: Search For Two DIA Sources

Kit,

I was not with you during the meeting you had with Barry Hennessey about Rick’s polygraph records. The meeting you and I participated in included Barry Hennessey, Col. Weaver, and the CIA CI Director and did not involve any discussion of Rick’s polygraph records. So the quote from Ms. Loscowski regarding what I did and the circumstances of the meeting could not have been correct. More likely the person who claimed to be Ms. Loscowski described what she had read on the Internet concerning the fabricated story that you and I had met with Barry Hennessy to discuss Rick’s polygraph records. Therefore the lady who contacted you most likely was not Col.
Weaver.

Your expansion of the story of the two DIA employees visiting LANL and being known to others has me concerned. The names you provided do not correspond to any DIA employees. There are no people with those names that have TS//SCI clearances. If the story of the sources/visitors is true, they are falsely representing themselves as DIA employees, possibly to access sensitive facilities and acquire classified information for a foreign service.

I am nearly certain that Rick fabricated this entire story, and that he is Mr. Anonymous, Ms. Loscowski, and the two DIA sources/visitors. If so, Rick may just be having a good time, and we need not be concerned for national security. If not, there may actually be a network of foreign agents penetrating some of our most sensitive facilities under the false flag of a DIA operation. Therefore please be very clear in describing the form of communications you had with Ms. Loscowski (e.g. phone, e-mail, etc.); how you acquired the additional background concerning the DIA sources visitors; and what you know of about the many people who know them.

Ron

**

Not very long ago, Ron was kind enough to offer RU investigators a short briefing about the entire episode that transpired between he and Kit, and how Kit’s claims, in particular about Dearlove’s reactions to the alleged DIA names, caused Ron a lot of personal embarassment when he attempted to follow-up the story Kit was claiming with officials within the Agency. In the end, the DIA names turned out all completely fabricated, save for one – a DIA clerk without security clearances but who’d just started her job. Somehow, the scammers had obtained her name from a directory or other source, and started using it as a “DIA contact” – that person’s name was Tamara Linden. In fact, the scammers continue using a Tamara Linden email address today, as well as the Gene and Paul accounts – all fraudulent email accounts using fake or borrowed names. Not a single legitimate DIA source exists, nor does a single ounce of government interest exist in “SERPO,” to support the strange, delusional tales that Gary Bekkum weaves with each article he writes.

And now you know the rest of the story.

The Morristown UFO Hoax Exposes Problems With Ufology


flares In the process of our research here at RealityUncovered, while investigators are currently centrally focused on the MJ-12 mythology that has permeated through Ufology for so many years – we also come across some truly unusual stories. The Morristown UFO incident is certainly one of the strangest hoaxes to come out of Ufology in a very long time. It’s strange because, this time, it was conducted by two skeptics who believe in the need to expose pseudoscience.

The Morristown, N.J. UFO Hoax

In an odd twist on UFO hoaxes, this one was conducted by skeptics Joe Rudy and Chris Russo who wanted to conduct a typical UFO hoax in order to portray, in a very public way, how easily people are fooled by such things. Reading this story brought to mind a conversation Steve and I had about a year ago in the midst of our own investigations. 

One late night, after reading some of the silly frantic comments about the "Caret Drone" at a particular forum called "Open Minds" (one of many tiny UFO believer-forums that’s always crawling with brainless nimwits ready to believe the next big hoax) – I said to Steve, "Why are hoaxers so stupid about creating these stories – they give themselves away, leaving clues and evidence strewn all about for any decent researcher to discover?"

Steve’s response was a short quip, typical of his personality that combines a matter-of-fact approach with biting British sarcasm. "Because there aren’t any decent researchers in Ufology."

"Do you realize that based on what we know about this scam (MJ-12), and the mistakes they made – we could create a hoax a hundred times more effective and impossible to trace?"

"Yup," he responded.

"Why the hell are the hoaxers so stupid?"

"Because they’re used to dealing with brainless believers who never bother checking anything out," he answered.

And that’s the truth.

balloon_release Using fishing line, helium baloons and flares, Joe and Chris conducted one of the most elaborate UFO hoaxes of the last few years. They produced UFO sightings several times, and each time the media coverage was huge – even the History Channel’s UFO Hunters and Bill Birnes of UFO Magazine covered the "Morristown UFO." Bill Birnes in particular was revealed for his lack of critical thinking in this case. They were never caught – but eventually revealed themselves on an online eSkeptic website.

If You’re Gonna Hoax – You’re Gonna Get Yours Too

There is a reason RU has never taken the tactic of using public hoaxes as a way to expose hoaxes. In one case we turned MJ-12 scammers "anonymous" identity tactics against the hoaxers themselves by using an anonymous online entity named "Tacitus" to smoke out the con artists through their frantic, panicked reactions – but as an organization that stands firmly against hoaxing, creating a hoax directed toward the public would be counterproductive. If you fight hard so that hoaxers are revealed and prosecuted, you’d be shooting yourself in the foot by adding to the list of hoaxes already so prevalent in the field.

Joe and Chris eventually faced disorderly conduct charges by the Morris County prosecutor for presenting a "threat to aviation" with their stunt. Should they face those charges? Everyone has a different opinion. But regardless of how you feel about the actions of these two guys, they did successfully reveal a very important aspect of the UFO phenomenon and public reaction to sightings.

That revelation is that most journalists seem incapable of properly investigating witness claims or thinking critically about UFO sightings at all, and most UFO "investigators" have their heads shoved so far up their own particular belief system that they can’t see the forest for the trees.

What’s your opinion about the Morristown UFO duo – did they ultimately achieve what they set out to prove? Offer your feedback in the comments section below.

Latest RealityUncovered News and Updates


notes1 One thing we’ve learned here at RealityUncovered.net is that folks are very curious about all of our ongoing investigations. Every now and then we’ll receive emails from both members and non-members asking about how our investigations are going. We’ve decided to publish a monthly update to the blog outlining all ongoing investigations as well as the status on each – and any interesting tidbits we’ve learned along the way.

The Nature of Ufology Demands Secrecy

While we’re the last ones to promote non-disclosure when it comes to UFO information, one aspect of Ufology that requires secrecy is the "scoop" factor. The scoop is one of the biggest reasons Ufologists constantly fail to make any significant progress, because whether it’s researching a UFO sighting, government disclosure or any other groundbreaking story – investigators tend to lie, cheat and steal to capture story ideas and information from other researchers.

The problem with this is that the fastest person to publish the story is usually also the person who conducted the least research and verification of facts and evidence.  This has led to a field dominated by poor researchers who lack in critical-thinking skills. The confusion and doubt created by these shoddy articles lead to baseless speculation (in order to answer the points that were poorly researched), and also fuels the widening gap between the "skeptics" and "believers."

Well researched articles, on the other hand, leave very little question as to the truth. And for anyone who’s truly passionate about the truth – that’s what really matters. Some believers, due to a concept called cognitive dissonance sometimes ignore the evidence to protect the carefully built belief system in their head – but for the folks who are still grounded in reality, these well-researched and evidence-based articles are critical to a good understanding of what’s really going on. What this means, however, is that for good research to get carried out, it needs to be done under a certain degree of privacy and protection from other Ufology researchers – so while we can’t share all of the details about our ongoing investigations, we’ll provide what we can.

Ongoing RealityUncovered Research

The following topics are those that RU became interested in over the course of our multiple-year investigation into first Project Serpo, and then as that expanded into MJ-12 and a much larger 30+ year Ufology scam. The following side investigations are ongoing and at various degrees of completion. If you have any interest in joining RU investigators and contributing to the research, please contact us immediately. We are now offering payment for all contributor articles.

blackhole 1. MJ-12 Investigation –  The MJ-12/Serpo story continues to shock and suprise us regarding the depth and the scope of the long-running fraudulent activity. The activity involves a group of individuals, spans several decades, and involves scientific fraud, criminal activity and in some cases outright manipulation of Ufology enthusiasts, whom the scammers have very little respect for.

2. Steven Greer – RU investigators received information regarding the earliest days of Steven Greer’s "career" in Ufology. This was long before his "Disclosure Project" and CSETI days. We continue following a lead from 2006 referencing those early activities that are not mentioned anywhere else online, and have remained covered-up for almost two decades.

3. John Callahan – John Callahan is the FAA official who spoke at the National Press Conference in  2007, and told reporters, "At the end, one of the three people from the CIA said, ‘This event never happened; we were never here; we’re confiscating all this data and you are all sworn to secrecy.’" RU investigators, in collaboration with one of our members who had access to Leslie Kean at the Coalition for Freedom of Information who set up the conference, interviewed Leslie Kean in order to contact John. Our CIA source who was at the meeting provided information (to Leslie as well) about the meeting that conflicted with John’s statement to the press, and a second source who was at the meeting also confirmed that John’s statement to the press was untrue. Leslie attempted to block all attempts to question John directly. If anyone has further information on this story and would like to contribute directly before it is published to the national press, please contact us immediately.

4. Gordon Novel – Early on in our investigations, we learned about various ongoing activities within Ufology led by Gordon Novel and his alleged organization of a "reverse engineering" project that would eventually generate a craft that could fly based on flight properties observed from UFOs. Current activities related to this project are focused on gathering funds, and our sources confirm that multiple investors have already lost significant money on this "project." RU investigators continue to follow these activities because the prime person involved has a direct relationship and history with one of the MJ-12 scammers.

5. Earthtech/Institute of Advanced Research at Austin : Anyone with information about activities (both funding and promotional activities) at this research Institute is asked to contact RU directly.

6. Hal Puthoff – RU investigators are actively following up on several leads related to Dr. Hal Puthoff’s past and current activities in the field of Ufology. If you have information related to the funding of any of his work with Ken Shoulder’s "Charge Clusters" research and patent, Blacklight Power, High Freq. Gravity Wave research, Madison Priest’s "Magic Box," or the elusive "energy device," please contact us immediately. We now pay for published contributor articles.

7. Prion research – Early leads indicate that research into the brain degenerative Prion Disease may actually be related to something called mitochondria-mediated apoptosis – and one Canadian lead suggests that one cause could possibly be related to past military weapons research.

8. Robert Baker’s GravWave (Case Closed) – Information surrounding Robert Baker’s HFGW research suggests that the science as detailed by GravWave is not valid. Oddly, the typical "persons" who’ve promoted invalid scientific research in the past are also promoting Baker’s HFGW push to International scientists and investors. RealityUncovered contributed to the JASON group’s effort in determining all scientists involved in the work and providing information about the EarthTek conference by Davis and Puthoff promoting Baker’s work. This RU case was closed after the publication of the JASON report .

Research and Write for RealityUncovered

If you have information regarding any of RU’s ongoing investigations and would like to write a feature article on any of these topics, please contact us immediately.

Earth Energies Talks – Is Free Energy Possible?


energy One of the most amazing aspects of researching Ufology is the concept that most investigators who’ve been involved in the field for a certain amount of time usually end up fascinated by two major concepts – psychic power and free energy. In many ways the two ideas are very different, and in many other ways they are very much the same. After all, for many years parapsychologists explained the psychic "reality" that they believed they could reproduce in the lab through the concept of  a single, unifying "cosmic" force.

A Cosmic Force by Any Other Name

One man’s cosmic force is another man’s god. These are the fringes of science – the outer edge where physics struggles to explain the existence of the universe from the fragments that are already understood. The various Earth Energies talks that go on within conferences and committees, both within government agencies and non-profit institutes, all strive to understand the underlying source of energy that forms the Universe so that maybe, just maybe we can "tap" into that energy just like a waterwheel taps into the energy of a raging river.

Is There a Cosmic "River" of Energy?

Within electrical engineering there’s a deep appreciation for real-world conservation of energy – the idea in physics that energy can not be created or destroyed. Many people know of Einstein’s theory represented by E=mc2, or "E equals mc squared."  What’s it really mean? It means that in Einstein’s view of reality – E is energy.  The other side of the equation is the cool part.

The equation represents Einstein’s view of this connection between energy and mass when you combine it with the speed of light. In 1933, Irene and Frederic Joliot-Curie captured a photograph showing the creation of two particles within a "quantum of light" and curving away from eachother. John Cockcroft and E.T.S. Walton later established the reverse process of converting mass into energy in the splitting of an atom – each lower in mass than the original atom, but creating enormous energy in the process. Of course, we know how the conversion of mass to energy was used in warfare not very long afterwards. But keep in mind that Einstein never made any claims that energy could come from the vacuum of space, nor did he support anything even closely resembling a concept some pseudo-scientists are pushing called "zero-point" energy.

Is Free Energy Possible Then?

This goes back to conservation of energy. Whether or not you’re talking matter or energy, the Universe is balanced on both a macro and micro scale. Even in magnetism, a magnet only turns as long as the magnetic fields are unbalanced by another magnet or electricity.  

If there is in fact a "fixed"  or balanced amount of energy in the Universe, then we experience nothing more than conversions of energy every day. The reserve of energy, or the Unifying Force, comes from something that already exists – so to create energy to power your car, or boat, or heat your house…you need to get it from somewhere. You need to convert it from something.

The most promising advanced technologies are those that increase the efficient conversion of energy from a natural source into the energy that our modern world uses – electricity.  Today, your car is powered by the combusion of fossil fuels – extracting the energy from that fuel and converting it into mechanical motion of pistons. Tomorrow, that same car may be powered by 80 to 90 percent efficient solar devices that convert solar radiation into strong electrical power. Again – these are technologies that convert one natural form of energy into another form. There’s no such thing as "free" energy, because energy can’t be created from nothing.

Avoid Free Energy Scams

If you come across a device where the inventor claims it can extract energy from the magnetic field of the earth or from zero-point vacuum energy, grab hold of your wallet and back away very, very slowly.  Invest absolutely none of your hard-earned money into any project that violates the natural laws of thermodynamics. These are laws that are not going away soon – however much the scam artists would like them to.

Share your own point of view in the Forums.
