Saucers Over Albuquerque

a farce in three acts


**

Assumed Redemption
(being the preface to act 1)

by James Carlson

Some men dream of Valhalla in the heart, a mounted beast they can hope to control only with the most bestial of acts and the celebrations of their remembrance.  Others create their own personal mythologies, preparing symbols for their diet and their daily routines, hoping to learn how to survive the worst of the world along the way.  Men of conscience, on the other hand, may find themselves walking briskly along a thin road to either conflict, dust rising into the future and hiding the path forward while masking the past.  Memories assume direction without reference.  As a result, only a desperate few will ever be worthy of the dreams their lives will eventually preface for the rest of the world.  They create a vicious disregard in their hearts and write out their own lives amidst the pages of a world unimagined.

These are the elements and conditions that map the origin of the stories and legends we try most urgently to remember in the darkness when a quiet, calm world sleeps and predators howl.  Even on strident courses set aside for us by anxiety and sorrow, the huge majority of men are only rarely significant outside of their own surroundings, while the twisted aggregates of their intent and its corruptions are even less so.  This is why we repeat the stories that we learn and the tales told of earnest men and great and worthy dreams.  We measure out in painful breaths the uncertain value of those enigmatic thoughts borne by such men and the pitiable personae we have sketched out and adopted to describe them as if they were ours alone and not merely the tasteless leavings of other men’s lives.  It is an expression of our arrogance to believe them original and to call them our own.  They are not.  They are merely a handful of scattered enigmas vying for our short-lived yet nonetheless starving attentions.

It is precisely because we are unoriginal and suggestible that we all too often owe our dreams and our dilemmas to the feckless men who follow behind those rare few worthy of our symptomatic regard.  This is, in fact, our worst quality, the most ungracious description of the human character.  We try so hard to live the dreams of other men that we forget how to create dreams of our own.  This cultural amnesia ultimately forces us to rely on unnatural and ultimately meaningless tales for the sustenance of heart our temporal lives demand, allowing them entrance into minds and emotions that represent the undefined legacy of our species.  Once there, they flop and scuttle before us like breathless fish at the bottom of a boat next to a couple of cracked sinkers and ugly, wretched bits of worm and cricket, and the milky scales of day-old snappers.  It is our suggestibility that makes them real, not some natural and inborn quality possessed by the measurable habitations of life.

The stories we absorb are just poor reflections of what were once the steps of an unknown dance that left only footprints behind, soon scattered in the wind, and yet, they nonetheless help us to navigate our culture and the development of our values if we can only hold firm and refuse to define them as some kind of modeled template of our lives.  Complacency is necessary, not sacrifice and belief, for only complacency allows us to focus our attentions on what we can do, not on what we can imagine.  One example of the need for such complacency is represented by the Disclosure issues currently being sold to dreamers and madmen by shameless reprobates throughout every nation in the world where the word “UFO” has come to mean something other than an undefined anomaly in the sky.  Disclosure is defined and reconditioned to meet the expectations of men and women who cannot possibly reach a consensus based on real knowledge of real events, and yet it is being used to shape political desires and potential national policy.  It is an arrogance that yields only to the imagination.

                                                                                                                               

Most of the world is aware that the Full Disclosure beggared by the irresponsible optimism of wishful thinkers to the ultimate fate of the universe has already revealed its most curious and penetrating secrets.  Nonetheless, we forever debate the social implications of aggressive incontinence, and fool ourselves into believing there might be something alien yet rational hidden away in decades-old government briefing memorandums just waiting at the bottom of some steel-layered safe at the Pentagon for that one properly worded query amidst a stack of the new FOIA requests for the week.  That’s why so many continue to send those relatively pointless requests out once a month like some religious responsibility, week after week, over and over again.  Each time a FOIA request finds its way to the post office, it’s wrapped up in expectations that the response will be different this time.  Maybe that single word in paragraph six that was changed at the last minute will find favor with another faceless Admin rep.  It’s certainly possible that there’s a new classified materials officer at Edwards AFB, and this guy just might interpret our intentions with a friendlier attitude than the last three appointees.  Maybe whoever he is will finally send us the records that we’re so obviously referring to instead of those damned garbage histories that keep talking about Venus waxing with the waning moon.  Maybe this time …

 

These are the easy lessons – things we’ve learned from experience and unchanging response.  We already know the color and the flavor of its debris, and we immediately recognize its true value.  You see, the flying saucer hunters are no longer primed with cameras and videos as they used to be, and this tells us something important about intent.  Maybe this new aspect of gathering wool has come about because they’ve finally caught up with Hollywood FX, and are still unable to prove the point or improve the outcome.  They used to tell us that in the future everyone will have a camera, and the proof of UFOs from outer space will become more apparent as a result.  Today, both corporations and governments assure us that the 24-7 video record of our environment is a necessary, albeit violent, investment of privacy calculated to improve the quality of our instantaneous and oppressive security, and yet nothing is clearer than the primary tenet of our new Church of the Saucer:  outside of criminal enterprise, there is nothing very interesting for us to examine.

We’ve finally cornered the future within the weeks and months of our lives and we have discovered that nothing has changed.  In typical response to this world weary principle, the predators now conduct their hunts in the pages of old newspapers and magazines and amongst the faded words of FOIA documents that are older than the USAF.  This too has repercussions, of course, easily discovered within the pages of a new dogma, and just as easily defined:  in the future there won’t be any more secrets.  According to what passes as the new wisdom, this ultimate truth will finally and for all time be readily apparent, as if all we had to do was convince some guy with the appropriate security access who happens to be more than a little annoyed with the IRS to speak up a bit louder into the hidden microphone and change world history with a whisper.  Pay no attention to the man in the closet, and never forget:  this revolution’s gonna be televised.

Every kid in the third grade demands his own You-tube account, while the old farts who know exactly how much the best kept secrets are really worth tell themselves in that shady bit of twilight that spins the world around just before new sleep dims old intent that they’d spill whatever the rest of the world thinks qualifies as the beans in a heartbeat for a small fistful of goddamn antacid that really works. 

Somewhere in Ohio, an eight-year-old kid playing with his sister’s spandex leggings is watching Alien Autopsy on his Dad’s DVD player and 60-inch flat screen and thinking to himself, this is so corny – I bet I could do it better on my laptop.  And he’s not lying, either.

Across the street, the battle-hardened trio who tried to get a neighborhood UFO Watch club started, but couldn’t generate enough interest to schedule regular meetings has decided to rest what’s left of their hopes on the supposition that their dreams were somewhere recorded and co-opted and will someday be brought out into the light.  For them, the truth can only be approached after it’s been talked about between midnight and four on nationwide talk radio or exhibited across the screen on what used to be the History Channel.  Meanwhile, educated men greet such presumptions with rigid contempt and a little sour laughter.

Unfortunately, the world has been forced to listen to this silly little tune for far too long, and none of it has ever really changed, forcing us to examine its evolution in the splendor of its stillness and its uncompromising refusal to grow into something worth the energy necessary to redirect our national gaze.  Take a deep breath.  Hold it.  Exhale.  Now, in this single moment, this aggressive second of future reckoning, reconcile yourself to everything that’s unremarkable in life and recognize therein the true face of UFOlogy:  it is worthy of attention only when it’s marketable with a profit margin exceeding the investment of reasonable and well-focused contempt.  There.  That’s your first lesson on how a toss-off theory of economics can dictate the value of anything – even your own worthless hallucinations.  If you’re starting to think that maybe your emotional investment in this odd little world of UFOs and flying saucers and alien abductions just off the highway of poisoned impressions and slaughtered cattle bleeding out into the hot, red brick clay of a cracked valley where the rivers dried up long ago might have been too time consuming in your youth to enable any real objectivity today capable of keeping your blood pressure consistent and low, then you should probably go grab yourself a nice, cold beer and some of those generic cheese puffs in the 50-pound bags, ‘cause you’ve got some serious catching up to do…

 

60-years of man’s complete and utter failure to wrestle the flying saucer out of its natural reverie of folk tales and myths into groundbreaking reality has forced the world to abide with a somewhat weaker intent to discover the rare and unknown than in centuries past.  In a way, this is fitting, since UFOlogy, in its most general and aggressive terms, has been relegated to the dreariness of a poor history lesson.  The most fanatical or heretical of its judgments are raised to interpret events that can no longer produce witnesses, because so very few have survived the intervening years.  That’s one reason it’s become so popular amongst the starry-eyed glitterati to embellish new UFO claims on old USAF history in order to create a reality that few critics are willing to apply their disgust to so evenly.  For 60-years they’ve been buying twenty different tales of Roswell being sold by con-artists with the gross mentality of incompetent thieves, and they respond by cursing the CIA, the USAF, and the rest of the Department of Defense for refusing to tell them what really happened.  Meanwhile, the CIA, the USAF, and the rest of the Department of Defense fail to respond with anything approaching the expected reconciliation of rumor, having dismissed those making such demands decades ago.  These are lessons children could understand, and yet the UFO proponents are still confused, blaming governments for their own stupidity made plain in their refusal to adopt one of the most popular and easily understood philosophies of human existence yet devised:  examine carefully before buying!

Claims invented in the library need no accompanied resplendence to amaze and bewilder – they just need another badly faked signature so you think it might represent actual history.  As a result, UFOlogy has been enclosed within the same theoretical structure as Jack the Ripper, leaving its adherents no closer to an answer than those who insistently ask the world aether for the Ripper’s true identity, while expecting, of course, no serious or cogent response.  It’s now very clear that the greatest and most violent discussions produced under the aegis of world-wide UFOlogy concern events and the interpretation of events that occurred decades in the past.  UFOlogy now encompasses ancient history, precisely because it cannot find relevance in current events.  When there is nothing new under the sun, what, exactly, is there left to discover?  Similar to the nearly extinct Martians in Roger Zelazny’s A Rose for Ecclesiastes, it appears that we can always learn a little something from ancient man’s contemplation of futility.  And not unlike the Old Testament’s Book of Ecclesiastes, the Second Law of Thermodynamics makes all things equal through time, while heat death cleanses the universe of responsibility.

Hell, even the unconscious yearnings of the UFOlogical mind make its definition as a history lesson obvious to those caught up in the examination.  Full Disclosure, the single most sought after goal of UFOlogy’s most fanatical adherents, is encompassed within the passive desire for its justification, the importance of its existence to those desiring enlightenment.  Full Disclosure will justify the daily yearnings and the wasted nights of true believers most noted for replacing knowledge with faith.  Government secrets will finally vindicate their pre-teen assessments of this tiny bit of galaxy we call home, and shrink the Universe to a manageable size and dimension.  The intolerable laughter of human peers will finally fade out like the end of a laugh track queued to the closing credits of our own cartoon episode of The Ghostbusters Meet Scooby Doo on parade.  In the words of Mike Good, a columnist for UFO Magazine, Disclosure “is our last hurrah, right before we UFO aficionados say, ‘I told you so’ to all of those friends and family who poked fun at us and called us weirdoes and finally become, in Nick Redfern’s words – sorry Nick, I’m paraphrasing here – completely redundant and irrelevant.”  Disclosure, in other words, is the justification of belief that has failed to provoke any meaningful response outside of ridicule.

Mike Good

The connotation here is oriented in terms usually reserved for religious enlightenment, which is important to understand, given that Disclosure possesses a fundamentally secular definition.  Disclosure is simply the admission by the United States government that the truth behind UFOs and flying saucers is a story of extraterrestrial influence worldwide that has been known and classified by the Department of Defense for the past 60-years.  In other words, Disclosure is the reinterpretation of history.  This whole argument of religious tone and human development is based on the insistence of a few that their interpretation of history is correct, and the history known to the rest of the world is wrong.  60-years of UFOlogical failure is reinterpreted as UFOlogical success when the U.S. government finally admits that all of the paranoid secrets emblazoned, tattooed, and then branded by UFOlogists onto the psyche of America is not the effect of the commonplace and unexceptional collection of variables that the great majority of evidence indicates it is, but is instead the extraordinary causal effects of alien creatures, alien cultures, and alien technology.

Disclosure states nothing definitive about human existence today.  It’s merely the reinterpretation of human history undertaken to prove that UFOlogists were not wrong about Roswell, Minot AFB, American nukes and UFOs, aliens at the Pentagon, and a hundred other non-events that were bought and sold years ago.  It is simply the United States government’s validation of UFO claims that it has always rejected.  Disclosure is the release of classified materials proving that UFOlogists were right and the rest of the world was wrong.  Unfortunately, because the rest of the world was not wrong, and because UFOlogy is all too often the refuge of liars, hoaxers, the mentally ill, the mentally deficient, the uneducated, and the easily convinced, and because the U.S. government doesn’t really care about UFOs or those who believe in them, such a Disclosure will never occur.  And if something akin to Disclosure does occur, the results of that singular examination of classified knowledge will never be accepted as complete or honest by those who expect the past 60-years of UFOlogical failure to be exonerated, and thereby redefined as UFOlogical success.  As Mike Good says, “Disclosure:  It is the Holy Grail.  It is the culmination of all those years of cogitating about UFOs.”  When that “Holy Grail” is nothing more than the realization that authoritative historians – or the revelation of new FOIA documents – do not meet the expectations of those lobbying for that new lease on their desires and beliefs, those who are so eagerly awaiting their view of that “Holy Grail” will need to look at themselves a little deeper – not their government.  After all, there is nothing more certain than the fact that these UFOlogists are no longer looking for UFOs – they’re just looking for people to tell them they were right about their interpretation of events that transpired 60-years ago, or 50-years ago, or 40-years ago, or yesterday.  They demand that their shattered beliefs be repaired by the rewriting of history, which is essentially all that Disclosure really is.  At its heart, it’s just another word to justify the whining that all too often accompanies failure.   

Disclosure – the Holy Grail of UFOlogy – will supposedly solve all of the problems that UFOlogy’s many frequent failures have made so plain to the rest of the world.  When the USAF discloses all it knows about UFOs, the flying saucers at Roswell will finally become historically significant instead of the collection of folk tales and comedy routines that it represents today.  Disclosure will finally turn Robert Hastings’ silly musings, distorted reports, impulsive and obsessive lies, and nonsensical syllogisms about technologies he is completely ignorant of into the attendant usurpation of military strategies designed to bring about a new age typified by a fact-based approach to nuclear power and weaponry.  It will rewrite Robert Salas’ complete and utter lies, redefining them as lessons taught to us by the more advanced and infinitely more understanding aliens with a mission to protect us from ourselves.  With the onset of Full Disclosure, the tale of man’s search for meaning within the wallets of his neighbors – an object lesson warning us of the pain that can follow mental illness and its toleration for unprovoked supposition – will turn into the unified redemption of Stanton Friedman’s numerous, evolving claims regarding our government’s response to the birth of alien intervention in man’s affairs.  That’s all Disclosure really is: assumed redemption.  Remember, please, and attend to that single definition.  Disclosure is primarily the redemption of those who are wrong, as collected within their irresponsible rewriting of human history.  It’s what happens when mankind uses witchcraft to turn its failed search for God into our successful encounter with the body politic.  For the most part, it is always used in reference to a future event, and as such, it can never actually occur (which is a blessing without disguise for those like Richard Dolan, Bryce Zabel, Robert M. Collins, Robert Hastings, H. R. Phillips, Robert Salas, Stephen Greer and many, many others who are currently selling it worldwide).  Disclosure is simply a means of making money by selling ideals and the byproducts of wishful thinking amidst the assurance that wrong is right. 

Di$clo$ure is a profit-motivated system designed to treat the psychic wounds of those who refuse to accept the promise that their futures will be ordinary.  It is intended to address the fractured impressions of UFOlogy left behind at the culmination of the USAF’s investigative apparatus, Project Blue Book, the decision to shut down that money pit having been reached upon the Department of Defense’s conclusion that there was nothing important, substantiated, or reasonable to investigate and no cause for the Pentagon to pretend otherwise.  You might keep that in mind the next time you see that your dreams of flying saucers, unprovoked aggression, and alien manipulations have also been dreamed by others, and that these others have added a price tag to the tail end of them in order to flag down your lapsing attention.  And the next time you read one of those revelation-promising tomes wherein the world is buggered once again by hoary-eyed mystics riding unpronounceable, viciously lucid machines far too close to your damp and hidden face for you to decide whether they truly exist in a time that dances to the music of matter or are merely a preface to those dreams you have yet to spill, you might remember for one quiet, brief moment the true character surrounding UFOlogy’s aggressive intent:  only the first hit is free.

Alfred Webre on Telepathy and the Oil Spill:

“ Examiner.com has documented the operational existence of Tesla-based teleportation as an operational technology for transporting goods and people over distances in the classified U.S. defense projects. Likewise preliminary evidence has established the existence of U.S. space vehicles using anti-gravity energy and other advanced propulsion systems.  
The U.S. government has historically classified teleportation exclusively as a weapons technology, for transporting troops to battle locations, or personnel and goods between secure military bases.
The environmental, economic and social impacts of the BP oil leak operation may mobilize public awareness and political will to transform this policy decision, and make teleportation available for civilian use, worldwide.
How the BP oil leak operation may affect extraterrestrial disclosure, either by governments or by specific extraterrestrial civilizations themselves, is an unknown “wildcard.”
One researcher has taken the view that a grey and reptilian-based extraterrestrial hyper-dimensional alliance is concerned about humanity because of our propensity to environmental degradation. The researcher highlights an environmental catastrophe as the trigger for open relations between humanity and the greys and grey-human hybrids. He states, “If these accounts of salvation are true, then the aliens’ message is clear: After the catastrophe, whatever it is, takes place, the late-stage hybrids and perhaps the aliens themselves will engage in a general integration into human society. As one hybrid told [contactee] Claudia Negron, ‘Soon all life will be changed. People will be different.’ Presumably, we will all live in peace and harmony. The environment will be healthy and there will be no more war or conflict.”
This Examiner.com article examines whether the BP oil spill operation is likely to accelerate disclosure of teleportation, anti-gravity energy and/or the extraterrestrial and UFO presence.”

About Webre’s book “Recovery,” his wife writes:

“I see this book as a journey and as a work of courage. Alfred Webre is my husband and soul mate. Through the time we’ve spent together I’ve watched him wage a battle, sometimes fierce and unsettling, with the mental illness that has plagued and enriched his life. At the depths of one of his depressions I suggested that he update one of his books, “The Age of Cataclysm” and perhaps write a book on his personal journey through manic-depression. My thinking at the time was he needs something to focus on and give him some purpose. That was in July shortly after “God” died and left Alfred both, devastated and exhilarated. He and I had been working together to come to grips with his attraction to cults and to move into a state of recovery. This was a task I felt well prepared for as I had done a great deal of “exit therapy” over the years with a variety of cult members.”

In other words, Alfred Webre had to be deprogrammed by his wife. He should go down on his knees and thank the gods that it wasn’t his mother-in-law.

The Cult Consumer Cometh: Totems in Cyberspace

Pushing the Envelope

First, let us get rid of any idea that Alfred Webre is insane. As a brilliant man with a rather battered but ofttimes equally brilliant public record, he knows exactly what he is doing. The same could be said of his colleague Michael Salla, another clever man who has been thrown out of many academic posts because of his views on the supposed presence of extraterrestrial aliens and their influence on human culture.

First let’s take a look at the backgrounds of these two men:

Alfred Webre is the author of Exopolitics: Politics, Government and Law in the Universe. He is a Fulbright Scholar and holds degrees from Yale University, Yale Law School (Yale Law School National Scholar), and the University of Texas Counselling Program. He has taught Economics at Yale University (Economics Department) and Civil Liberties at the University of Texas (Government Department), and has been a futurist at Stanford Research Institute.

As Senior Policy Analyst in 1977 at the Center for the Study of Social Policy at Stanford Research Institute (now “SRI International”, Menlo Park, California), Webre was Principal Investigator for a proposed civilian Scientific Study of Extraterrestrial Communication, that is interactive communication between the terrestrial human culture and that of possible intelligent non-terrestrial civilizations. Webre is the only Exopolitician with such views to get near the White House. This proposed Study was presented to and developed with interested White House staff of the Domestic Policy staff of President Jimmy Carter during the period from May 1977 until the fall of 1977, when it was abruptly terminated. The Carter White House denied Exopolitical studies see http://www.ufoevidence.org/documents/doc944.htm

Dr. Michael E. Salla has held academic appointments in the School of International Service, American University, Washington DC (1996-2001), and the Department of Political Science, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia (1994-96). He taught as an adjunct faculty member at George Washington University, Washington DC., in 2002. He is currently researching methods of Transformational Peace as a Researcher in Residence in the Center for Global Peace (2001-2003) and directing the Center’s Peace Ambassador Program which uses transformational peace techniques for individual self-empowerment. He has a PhD in Government from the University of Queensland, Australia, and an MA in Philosophy from the University of Melbourne, Australia.”

Those folk with a still-intact sense of wonder might try these following two pieces of work for size, from Webre and Salla respectively. We note that the first contains a failed prophecy, and the second absolutely spectacular bullshit. The only good thing that can be said about these opinions is that they represent a new kind of what used to be called Theatre of the Absurd.

Extraterrestrial False Flag Operation.

“A whistleblower has recently emerged alleging secret preparations are underway for a false flag operation to justify a military response to “alien invaders” by August 2007. The whistleblower claims that s/he was asked “to write up ‘spin’ and propaganda that would help win the country’s leaders over to our new ‘war effort'” against extaterrestrials. The whistleblower posted his/her message at the Above Top Secret forum and has generated immediate interest by many (see: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread288370/pg1 ). While the whistleblower’s statement appears plausible at first hand, there really is little need to demonise extraterrestrials to justify a false flag operation if an upped military response is desired by those in control of extraterrestrial related information. The extraterrestrial abduction literature is so pervasive and dominant in UFO studies that it has created a set of powerful cultural stereotypes of extraterrestrials. The primary stereotype is that of advanced “alien geneticists” performing a range of invasive medical procedures to abducted women with the aim of creating a future hybrid race to replace current humanity.”

And here is Salla:

An Exopolitical Perspective on the Preemptive War Against Iraq

“The political paradigm to be used in this paper is based on ‘exopolitics’. This paradigm starts with the premise that there exists an extraterrestrial (ET) presence on Earth which clandestine government organizations have been withholding knowledge of from the general public and elected public officials. Rather than being an unsubstantiated ‘conspiracy theory’ with little relevance to contemporary policy issues such as a pre-emptive US war against Iraq, it will be argued that an exopolitical analysis can provide a more comprehensive understanding of what motivates the Bush administration in launching a pre-emptive attack against Iraq.”

http://www.nwprogressive.org/weblog/2008/07/local-conservative-think-tank-spokesman.html

The single word “futurist” in Webre’s curriculum vitae is enough to sow suspicion that Exopolitics is a structured collection of synthesised nerve-centre memes, no less. It might just have occurred to a very clever chap such as Webre are not getting to the top by pre-digital frontal assault, why not, using the new technological means available after Jimmy Carter’s Presidency, make a meme-borne worm which will do the job?  After all, knocking on the doors of Authority is a pretty old-fashioned very non-futurist and largely non-productive action.

Now here is where the plot goes deep, dirty, and suspicious.

Webre was (is) an acknowledged futurist. He has been in that game far longer than many senior Ufologists, and as a futurist he would necessarily have been completely familiar with the work and ideas of Marshall McLuhan and Buckminster Fuller, to name but two influential futurists. From Scientology to modern Consumer theory, from Artificial Intelligence studies to the work of Ray Kurtzweil, it has been suggested that it might be possible to model entire brains and indeed entire worlds in terms of Product modelling. This expresses the idea of a culture rising from a basic kit of archetypes, reminiscent of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein.

Her idea is now fully realised in the DNA lab.

But after his (understandable) failure at the White House, Webre might just have asked himself could the same principles be realised in terms of those particular ideas which form belief structures?

Now it so happens that both Webre and Salla are very clever meme engineers. Just like L. Ron Hubbard who created Scientology, Webre and Salla went on to create  a synthetic mythology which, as we shall see, rivals Scientology somewhat in its aims and practices. Their work is interesting if only that it shows how the structure of Web-born mimetic worms may be designed. Such worms have viral properties which can be seen quite clearly in the psycho-social culture dish. In this sense they are “intelligent” forms of non-carbon life, just as is an image in our heads of Marilyn Monroe, or any one other of millions of such sparkling harpies.

Exopolitics represents no less, a new form of viral programming. This can easily evolve into a new form of social control. It consists largely of fantasy and entertainment whose image-based symbolic structure is easily manipulated by Big Media and rampant Consumerism as regards exploitation of belief.

Such “intelligent” forms of dosed information are easy to insert into a dumbed-down society whose media-soaked heads are on the verge of cultural disintegration. For example, we might look at Sergeant Stone’s “57 varieties of Extraterrestrial Alien” on http://www.combat-diaries.co.uk/diary30/heinz.htm

Looking at them as new kinds of cyber-animal, we might ask how do these worms “think?” To answer this question we must get rid of almost every single idea concerning so-called “Artificial Intelligence” we have ever had. We should also throw out all ideas about what is termed “communication theory.” Present ideas concerning robotics and automation are based on accretion of mechanical complexity. What we call “thinking” here is represented by the active “recognition” of “factual” elements and the integration of this into other programmed vectors formed by paradigms based on mechanised input and output schedules. The result is nothing more than a collection of clever spanners.

Our Exopolitical Webot is a very different creature which can create parasitical image-forms in the imagination of willing customers.

As I showed in my article “Meme Wars we Have an Agenda” the Web has given birth to many digitised forms of non-carbon life which do not think in terms of mechanical analogues. It might depress serious Left-intellectuals and Guardian-style social-democratic liberals, but our déclassé Exopolitical Webot here “thinks” like a Tesco manager or his Walmart equivalent. As such managers know, quantities and “facts” come very much second to image appeal. Customers will accept and buy inferior goods if they have the right image. Therefore we are all consuming the image as well as the food, which becomes a somewhat secondary thing. In the case of Exopolitics, our highly structured Webot has succeeded in inserting a parasitical form of image-life into many minds. Again, as the managers of the silver screens know, manipulation is all about images. Like Marilyn and the host of other harpies like her, our Exopolitical worm is a fast breeder, and like her again, it has an infinite longevity. Should we not believe that, we should try getting rid of Marilyn in the head. It is impossible. Like her or hate her, she is there forever. Despite ourselves, we act and talk with her, we will write for her, produce films and plays for her, and we will dream of her as if we were sixteen again and a hustler on the make looking for the best chance.

This Marilyn pseudo-world will be experienced in the fragmented forms of dreams, intuitions, and what the playwright Eugene Ionesco called nostalgia mysterieux.

Together with many others like her, she will pursue us beyond our deathbed.

Marilyn, like the synthetic body of Exopolitics, is a worm.

Though she has been inserted as a fast-breeder programme by a very different technology to that of Exopolitics, the principle is the same. The inserted images will breed as self-replicating clones and any “facts” will fall away like supports from a newly-launched ship. Such multi-dimensional worms are image-based programmes with Matrix-style optional sub-texts. They can be designed to insert any particular target programme into Prime Time conscious and form an important focus of Mind. The result of such operations is the Exopolitical (supposed) alien, who is now no less a “star” than Marilyn Monroe.

By analogy, such an extraterrestrial alien is now a possible worm in the liminal stage of embryonic development. Like Monroe, Michael Jackson or Elvis, the alien is now neither real nor unreal. In terms of Big Media product-gestation, the extraterrestrial alien is under construction.

This idea gives an entirely new meaning to the concept of “disclosure.” For “disclosure” we may now read collective “sanction.” In the manner of TV soap development, in 2010 we now allow things to happen in such series which if they had happened in 1950s would have sent us straight to the hangman’s noose.

Therefore the answer to physicist Enrico Fermi’s question “where are they?” is: “the alien is under construction.”

In the Fortean sense, this new paradigm replaces absolute fact versus absolute fiction with scales of permissibility controlling schedules of allowances.

The Dialectic

Some parts of the operational technique used by our Exopolitical Webot remain somewhat old fashioned. They reflect elements picked up from the psychological tactics of dialectical materialism, no less. These Cold War Communist tactics (also used by Maoist China) were based on rebuilding commonly received dictionaries in heads, see Orwell’s idea of “Newspeak” in the novel 1984.These programmes (and dictionaries were the very first cultural “programmes”), contained certain words which were picked from a very narrow range of reference. These new word-groups formed a mantra, and the repetition of some kind of mantra is to be found in every world religion and every political philosophy.

The object of this technique (see The Manchurian Candidate) is to change the very metaphorical frame of perception by introducing a new narrative with a new and complete vocabulary. Thus we go from the holiness of the proletariat to fully conscious praise of the extraterrestrial alien and the wonders he is bring to Earth culture. We can see this technique in operation in the passage from Salla quoted above. He goes from perfectly ordinary discourse smoothly in the new “alien” narrative as if he is talking to a neighbour over the garden wall about the differences between cabbages and turnips. Thus is a seamless robe constructed, and utterly fantastic elements inserted into common dialogue with no bother at all. It is matter of dialectical scaling. By reducing anomalies to “ordinary” terms we can more readily introduce them into consciousness without any blood flowing at all.

People who lived in Germany in the earliest years of the Hitler regime reported on the sudden appearance of the word “Jew” in any and every kind of conversation. As distinct from Exopolitician David Icke (who IS racist!), there is absolutely no evidence that either Webre or Salla are racist or anti-Semitic in any way. However, they do wish to change the narrative in a way which might have been admired by a severally reconstructed Dr. Goebbels. Certainly Webre and Salla would both love to see the word “alien” used on all of the major Big Media networks alongside the “news” about the economy, sports and cooking tips. For example, the word “gay” has moved into prominence in the same way.

Thus do we demythologise as much as we mythologize in turn according to programmable allowance-schedules.

In these terms, our extraterrestrial alien is already knocking on what Aldous Huxley called The Doors of Perception.

The God-Agenda

Our Internet-born,  Exopolitical Webot is of a somewhat “scientific” nature. Both Huxley and Orwell described “scientific” attempts to change popular consciousness. In Orwell’s novel “1984” (pub. 1949), Big Brother interrogator O’Brien has to threaten Winston Smith with physical torture in order to make him toe the party line. We suppose that this meant that ironically, Orwell’s “scientifically” constructed Newspeak (again suspiciously similar to Scientology) was a failure. By contrast, in “Brave New World” (pub. 1932) Huxley proposed that what he called the “pleasure principle” would be far more effective than physical threats.

Huxley’s prophecy was the better one. He was the first to suggest that god-programmes could be manufactured by mass media.

Creating a Maker is of course an art form and not everybody can do it, but basically constructing a god-agenda is fundamentally no different to designing a good TV commercial break. Off-the-shelf components can be used, and the art of god-making is rather like the art of good cooking: you have to get to get the right things in the right proportions at the right time and temperature.

First to make your god (and the extraterrestrial alien is now an acknowledged god within Exopolitical belief), you must narrow the general vocabulary of the target audience. Second, you must tune this vocabulary to refer only to a certain chosen range of products, whether they be Jesus or tins of baked beans.

Cults (and Exopolitics is very much a cult) wilfully attach themselves to these specific vocabularies as articles of Faith. They cling to them as mediaeval pilgrims once worshipped what they supposed were pieces of the True Cross.

In the case of Exopolitics, the “products” of our psycho-social filter are such Prime Time words and phrases as  “airbase,” “nuclear,” “cover-up,” “space, ”abduction,” “whistleblower,” and (of course) “Intelligence Services.” Such words and phrases form a mantra group within the cult of Exopolitics. Additionally, the acronyms CIA, NSA etc form part of an integrated ritualistic emblem around which Exopolitical belief is structured. Such trigger-words induce the gestalt-rites of that particular mysterium called the Military-Industrial-Complex.

When we look at the collage (above) of the Twin Towers ablaze, we can see metaphorically that it was “made” of trigger-words within product emblems as well as your rationalist’s beloved end-stopped bricks and mortar.

Webre, like almost every UFO investigator sooner or later refers to the Pentagon and major US corporations very much as if they constituted such an  emblematic mysterium, which is a kind of technological shrine from which all knowledge flows. Like Stanton Friedman or Bruce Maccabee, having worked at Boeing, Northrop-Grumman or in the US Navy optical science division is a priestly credit-card flash as regards that Prime Time level  called “authenticity.” The Military-Industrial Complex becomes therefore a complete parallel to any kind of temple of worship in history, a veritable Gnostic temple where shadowy archetypal rituals supposedly take place. Thus NASA or Area 51 becomes identical to Kafka’s Castle, or Mervyn Peake’s Ghormangst Trilogy.  For example, Stanton Friedman (the original Victorian Station Master), uses the phrase “nuclear physicist” as a badge of honour, even though he has not done any nuclear physics for nearly forty years, and even then he didn’t do much. Nuclear physics of course is an essential part of any standard physics course at any standard University, so saying that you are a “nuclear physicist” doesn’t mean a lot. But in the world of Big Media that doesn’t matter. This is the way any culture evolves. It is all about images which control the game-play of the silver screens of the so-called “factual” world which is but a necessary stabilising component within our tempestuous realisations.

The Exopolitical propagandists know this only too well.

Let’s look at the dialectical fabric of the top passage from Webre again: the first two paragraphs contain quite a collection of buzz-words and muscular cartoon gosh-golly phrases familiar to all trendy toy-designers, janitor-abductees, retail-Ufologists and all others afflicted by the Thunderbirds-style aura. We know that as soon as we hear of “Tesla-based teleportation,” “classified U.S. defense projects” and “anti-gravity engines,” that we are in the familiar world of Exopolitics. Metaphor falls upon us “Thick as Autumnal Leaves that strow the Brooks In Vallombrosa.” There is not even time to gulp or gasp, or say “‘oil give it foive” before we head for the door of the glittering Exopolitical Emporium with stars in our eyes with a new hi-tech boxed game under our arm. What have we bought? We have bought a bundle of powerful skilfully-engineered totems, no less. But don’t worry – the same thing happens when we buy a magazine with Megan Fox on the cover, or a pack of Post-Toasties, called originally “Elijah’s Manna” – now there’s a good one for the eschatological conspiracists!

In these terms even Stanton Friedman is best seen as a rich glowing Meccano-set superliminal text rather than a discursive discourser. Generally speaking, such “scientists” are beginning to look like worn-out refugees from old East Germany covered in engine-rust and looking lost in a world in which their culture has become very much a poor second compared to Big Media.

The Fatal Attraction

Of course we can’t help but buy Exopolitical sweetmeats as offered. The packing and presentation would make any Tesco manager proud. They are all irresistibly sexy, and every with-it author knows that implicit eroticism and glossy technology make a powerfully attractive mix. With such shaky assurances from the cultural commercial breaks, we are young again that is until we encounter Webre’s second paragraph above. This puts a bit of a shadow over the glowing promises:

“The U.S. government has historically classified teleportation exclusively as a weapons technology, for transporting troops to battle locations, or personnel and goods between secure military bases.”

Wow! What kind of a world are we in here? Open the box. Origami snowflakes representing wondrous speculations burst in our head. We are in a world where there are almost no rules, a world in which we can say anything at all, just like at the old hippy be-ins or group-gropes of the 1960s. A bus is a moth; a cake is a spaceship. Past and future have no meaning; time and endeavour swerve and loop-the-loop. For a short time, we are in get-happy free-fall; this is hardly disturbing we say, because after all, this is how poetry is created.

But then we surely begin to get a little worried as the so-called “real world” makes a somewhat outrageous entrance:

“The environmental, economic and social impacts of the BP oil leak operation may mobilize public awareness and political will to transform this policy decision, and make teleportation available for civilian use, worldwide.”

Webre then goes on to claim quite seriously that:

“…the BP oil leak operation may affect extraterrestrial disclosure, either by governments or by specific extraterrestrial civilizations themselves, is an unknown “wildcard.”


GremlinWild is the word. Our boxed game is now rather like the Gremlins 1 film, with somewhat comic monstrosities bursting through all the cultural screens.

The “grey and reptilian-based extraterrestrial hyper-dimensional alliance” no less will arrive to save us and (as expected), the old New Age hippy messages appear:

“After the catastrophe, whatever it is, takes place, the late-stage hybrids and perhaps the aliens themselves will engage in a general integration into human society. As one hybrid told [contactee] Claudia Negron, ‘Soon all life will be changed. People will be different.’ Presumably, we will all live in peace and harmony. The environment will be healthy and there will be no more war or conflict.”

That any exterritorial aliens may turn out to be super-hippies is optimistic, as Hawkins has pointed out. What Keat’s “Stout Cortez” did to the Amerindians is yet another warning.


Charismatic Soap Bloodlines

Thus in one sentence does Webre try to introduce a new historical narrative full of alien-induced sweetness and light. The shock here is rather like one of those terrifying moments when you meet someone with an over-specialised ferocious intention in life. All such cult converts come out with some highly propagandized cosmic “explanation.” Now it is the extraterrestrial alien! Pubs and bars always contain such damaged banner-waving pariahs. In the old days they spouted Marxism or the Bible or some other cult-coded formulaic “solution” to Richard Adam’s “Life, the Universe and Everything.”

Today old-fashioned “hard” politics have almost gone from the streets. Now an innocent gets pinned against a wall and instead of being told to read the Life of Lenin, they get lectured on the infinite details of junkpop, from Lily Allen’s toe-nails to Michael Jackson’s child-molestations and suppurating cheek bones. A similar hazard of the modern world is to meet some “scientific” person with a Rubik Cube in his hand who talks about “scientific breakthroughs,” or encounter a brilliant and beautiful girl who talks about Cliff Richard’s musical “achievement.” Far worse is to meet a similar creature you fancy who wants to “free” the “poor people” (usually African) by the universal application of Science, Democracy and Socialism. If you haven’t met one of those particular animals, you haven’t lived. Should their shadow fall across your path, any would-be erection vanishes like the proverbial rat up a drainpipe, and you fly home to see which “personality” has been thrown out of the Big Brother House. In this sense, it must be admitted that the Big Media idea of the Universe as Junk is a marvellous antidote against those who have dangerously serious designs upon humanity at large. “Junk” in this sense means that almost everything (including Science)  is now all about styles and images, fashion and Big Media.

TV as the ultimate in Junk Culture has not “done” either Exopolitics or Ufology yet, but then TV gets to everything in time, so watch out – Webre’s astonishing Junk revelations may be waiting for the Big Media version of Exopolitical world history.

The old-fashioned “trip” has undergone reconstruction several times over through generations to become a powerful Big Media tool.

In these terms, Exopolitics represents the ultimate in postmodern consumerist hallucinations. It represents the fine art of creating Junk Culture using over-earnest inspirations concerning such things as the wondrous postmodern collage of Area 51, the story of Roswell and the MJ-12 Papers, the latter now worth about as much as a Bingo-caller’s hernia.

The source of such divine comedy is of course the confusions, misidentifications and absurd expectations made by all human beings when they are gripped by that quite impossible mode called the thinking process. We deceive ourselves even with the intention of scratching our nose.

All cultures are built of advertisements and deconstruction can point to those best-selling miracles of liberating laughter by means of which we mentally navigate.

Me Gone Cargo

The above passage from Webre shows that human cultures are formed and controlled by different kinds of story-technology, such as the “alien” narrative. Some of these story-memes are fantastic and hilarious, others mundane and rational. These “core stories” are totems, these being defined as those sets or clusters of forming principles by means of which human groups organise themselves around some central core of Belief, either mechanical or abstract. As such, totems are pure media manifestations wilfully induced by strong historical conviction as regards religion, royalty, racial/social class /bloodlines/extraterrestrial aliens, or indeed genuine mystical experience. Totems have the widest possible variety of forms: they vary from Christian Cross-worship to virtual worship of TV soap opera characters and glamorous performers in Pop, such as Michael Jackson (RIP), our nearest Western approximation to a god.

Death of course doesn’t matter to a god. We now await the first miracles from Neverland. True to god-like form, and rather like George Adamski’s Orthon and Jesus indeed, both Jackson’s brain and body appear to have vanished completely. Like Jesus again, Jackson has been “seen” in many places, from British fish-and-chip shops to brothels in Las Vegas. That is some Prime Time. Like the extraterrestrial alien, and the “scientist,” Jackson is now passing through the metaphysical stages of the great Consumer Book of the Dead.

Thus our totem can be deeply mystical (belief in a “real” god), or physically ritualistic as with identification with a particular football team.

Like Jackson, the extraterrestrial alien is such a god-form. He is noised poised between Fact and Fiction with the Exopoliticians trying desperately to push the envelope and make him appear everywhere, from fish-and-chip shops to CNN news headlines.

As we have seen in Part 1, Exopolitics can be seen as a meme-formed web-born prototypal entertainment system. It is now steadily morphing into a consumer-led “cargo-cult” mystique, see “Deconstructing the B-29” in my article for UFO Magazine “Putting the Noise Back into the System” http://www.combat-diaries.co.uk/diary30/cargo%20cult%20belief.htm.

In terms of Consumer Anthropology, the pseudo-dead Michael Jackson’s fleeting pseudo-appearances represent the Myth of the Return. In a similar way, Exopolitics represents a “return of the gods” movement fashioned in modern Western terms.

The “aircraft” seen below fashioned by a cargo-tribe is completely analogous to the concept of retro-engineering technology from supposedly crashed UFOs.

Cargo CultsWhat are “cargo cults? After the island-hopping campaign against the Japanese during the Second World War, the America military left behind dumps of any and every kind of material on hundreds of remote islands. After over twenty years of almost no contact with the West, it was found by researchers that the natives had fashioned a religion around abandoned war material such as radios and aircraft parts. They constructed wooden aircraft in imitation of the “real” planes they had seen, and they whispered into the microphones of long-dead radio sets in the manner of “real” operators. In a few cases, some well-preserved batteries would flicker into life, and scrambled “static” sounds (including voice fragments) were heard momentarily from speakers. Trying to convince natives that they had not heard the voice of the “gods” was not a good idea. Since the natives had no such concepts of the levels of mechanical time, any attempted “explanation” that the fragmented voices they had heard were not from the past but  were “random” signals from the present, were ignored.

They were also absolutely fascinated by the labels on millions of abandoned food tins.

“Thus was formed a kind of participation mystique between the natives and the characters and fragments of cartoon lives seen on the cans and food packs. Given a raging war and surrounded by death, there was no one around to try and explain that this homely Norman Rockwell cartoon life portrayed by the labels had already disappeared from mainstream U.S. culture. The almost identical physical proportions of such food packs also aroused great curiosity amongst the natives. This was their first encounter with what we can define as a product range as distinct from a singular thing. Great numbers of almost identical things was a new concept to them.
To the natives, each unit of previous experience had a face, and a unique self and identity. Each individual leaf on a tree had a certain character, as had indeed every grain of sand on the shore. Yet paradoxically, though each of such tins might be identical on the outside, they had certain ranges of differences when opened.

This caused crises with the traditional framework of cognition. The link between uniform faceless precision and sets of different limitless variety was a strange enigma. Seen in terms of cultural time-differentials, the content of the cans represented sustenance and pleasure—the very essence of the subtle magic of cargo whose long-vanished product chain was organized by a transactional mystique just as incomprehensible -as indeed it still is- to most young Westerners of the time as it was to natives.

Illustrated printed material left behind caused further confusion. Ranging from instruction manuals to newspapers and magazines these images showed yet another America – gone were the beautiful blondes and the apple-pie kitchens and shiny technology: here were grim-faced young women working at lathes and milling machines in war factories.

In these terms, the commonly accepted “mechanically objective” real appears to be more like a kind of psycho-social plasma whose structure consists of time-shifted confusions rather than differentiated spines of fact versus fictions.”

I give these examples at length because it is important to realise that the whole and entire modern UFO situation can be extrapolated from these conditions. But generally speaking, Ufology ignores the cargo-cult analogy, if only because it does not put humanity in a very complimentary light. It violates also the “objective” absolute fact versus absolute fiction paradigm which has held Ufology in a stone-age grip ever since it began.

Transformations of the Real: The New Scripts

The ancient magical-participation concept of totem here is used as distinct from the more commonly accepted idea of paradigm, which expresses the idea of an objective intellectual and almost-conscious transformation of cosmology within a culture. The idea of the paradigm has a certain mechanically “scientific” ring of iron logic about it; it fitted the idea of change in a 19th/20th century society where all processes of thought and action had mechanical analogues possessing that time-vector called “moral progress,” whose “morality” usually took the form of slavery, genocide, racism, and environmental disaster. We need not fear the phrase “magical participation” if only because our world is run by magical systems: royalty, religion, Arts, Pop Culture and Big Media are all such forms of image-based participation in that they are not scientifically formed in terms of the concept of “objective fact.”

Nevertheless, people shape and run their entire lives and thoughts by means of such cultures.

Due to the power of Big Media (which has quite replaced the power of Big Brother in our own world), the image, not the fact, is now dominant: everything consists of scripts, acts and performances. Even the “scientists” can be looked upon as rather splendid pieces of baroque rationalist theatre, with their times and angles, charts and statistics. These look very much like the two figures in Hans Holbein’s painting, “The Ambassadors.” In this painting, there arrayed upon the table behind the two ambassadors are the “measuring” instruments of the deep past. These pieces of ancient technology were once articles of faith in a steady-state cosmos which once had that forward-moving time vector called Mechanical Progress, supposedly leaving behind a pit of fools and deluded madmen. We note the skull in the painting as an ironic comment.

The important thing to realise about totems is that they can be readily manufactured. We now have the Product as totem. These baubles, bangles and beads spring to life like Gremlin’s splashed with water. All our essentially postmodern forms of perception are formed by metaphors derived from the idea of the Product. The Product is a Big Brother cosmetic makeover: Orwell’s physically-threatening Hitler/Stalin faces on the screens in the novel 1984 have been transformed into the psycho-social elements of far more gentle techniques of mass-media persuasion, such as above. Such pop-art culture as Product is now the New Estate. Pop elements of all kinds form the sacred part of a transaction ritual, worshipped as once were bits of the True Cross, Proletarianism, Elvis Presley, the no-bra bra, the paperless office, or indeed the claims of MUFON Commissars. The Product as pop art initiates a cool form of cargo-cult inspirations. Each item is worshipped, salivated over like the Shroud of Turin, the MILF Palin, or the Tandoori wallpaper produced by the Hubble telescope.

Despite ourselves, we are “run” by such carefully-inserted image software, whether by  Exopolitics or some other form of Consumer-cult. As such, Exopolitics is such a modern embryonic totem. It is a cool-style form of consumer-inspired designer-led rtailed mystique. Gone from the ideas of “magic” or the “occult”are the unfashionable voodoo chants, juju incantations and tarantula dances of the pre-electronic Ages. Such traditional processing domains regarded as pure information are non-carbon-based life forms which are good at disguising themselves whilst engaged in fresh transformations of totem-mystique. In these terms, Exopolitics is a cleaned-up modern techno-ritual, similar to the “clear” ritualistic techniques of L. Ron Hubbard, but with one big difference: Exopolitics is manipulative image-based story-technology. In this it is far more powerful than anything purely dialectical. Using image structures, belief is always up for grabs. It can be designed, manufactured, packaged and sold in line with Pork Scratchings, Quantum theory, Lady GaGa or Santa Claus.

As a movement, this power makes Exopolitics into a far more interesting thing than being a simple net of very human lies, mental illness, disinformation or psychopathic paranoia. The Projects SERPO, UMMO and Project Camelot, see

Exopolitical manifestations represent the first big Web-borne modern god-agenda detected since the old analogue disasters of Jonestown or WACO. In this, Exopolitics is Web-borne meme-power with a vengeance.

Had he lived long enough, Michael Jackson for example might have gone in for Exopolitics in a big way if only he might have seen it as superb pop-art. As it is, there will be time for Madonna to abandon her Kabala for Exopolitics and for Lady GaGa to put Webre as a guru into her new video. Other personalities such as Christian fundamentalist Sarah Palin are but two cyber breaths away from Exopolitics. It will become eventually almost irresistible to many of those “personalities” who live already almost entirely in a Jackson/GaGa world.

This is just one of its manifold destinies.

The “facts” of the industrial mechanical world have no meaning within the body of Exopolitics, which contains descriptions of colonies of UFO-abducted Americans on Mars. Goebbels said: “repeat the lie often enough, and it will be accepted” – although the idea of Americans being transported to Mars by means of a DARPA-built time-travel machine might be have proved too exotic an idea even for Dr. Goebbels or Scientology.

The Manipulations

As a Shaman/Trickster/ Entertainment cult, Exopolitics is not above launching rather sinister manipulations using those who happen to have famous surnames, such as Laura Eisenhower. No boiling cauldrons, bats or conical hats of traditional witches – no, this is an art of the cool. Perception is being changed by the use of programmable story-technology.

Here’s how Laura Magdalene Eisenhower was targeted by the Exopolitical “Mars colony” project team, practising deep-fried juju:

“In her statement, Ms. Eisenhower details how Agent X, her principal “handler” from the secret Mars project, eventually confessed to her that “He knew a lot about me from numerous sources that overlapped with one another – from Freemasons, Knights Templar, to this hidden branch of the government that was behind creating this Mars mission. They understood me based on remote viewing and time travel devices and they also seemed to recruit people from the Freemasons and Knights Templar who were well aware of the Magdalene path. They seemed to all be connected, but someone was taking advantage of it all and trying to stay one step ahead of how nature may have unfolded as far as us coming together into Union. I did not know he was an agent until months into the relationship and I later found out that it was them who sent him to find me and it was all a set-up.”

Here’s another  typical victim of a very different type. This one is a similar victim of a different kind of imagist-Consumerism:

“My name is Jaye Beldo and I suffer from Advertising Affective Disorder, or AAD. My affliction results from life-long exposure to advertising. Ronald McDonald haunts me in my dreams and tries to get me to pledge allegiance to the New World Order. The Pillsbury Doughboy claims that he is the messiah and if I don’t worship him he will turn me into dinner rolls. Tony the Tiger waits in the shadows, ready to pounce on me as punishment for trying to think outside the cornflakes box. Palmolive Madge threatens to soak my entire body in dish detergent because I desire world peace. The Charmin Teddy Bear causes me to fight with my girl friend. Every time I try to go to an art exhibition, I see Mr. Clean splashing floor-cleaner onto a painting by Picasso or Van Gogh. Advertising mascots like Joe Camel, the California raisins or the Michelin Tire Man trespass into my brain and demand that I buy their products, or else. It doesn’t matter if the ad aired yesterday or 30 years ago because the icons, logos and jingles continue to torment me 24/7. My sense of time has become grossly distorted. Sometimes my attention span comes in 30 or 60 second ad spots.

Sometimes I wonder if I’m being targeted by the CIA. Or perhaps AAD is the result of some Psy-Ops experiment. Perhaps the NSA is behind it all. If so, I’d like to know who or what my handler is. Could only Madison Avenue know for sure? I believe AAD is a silent killer. If you think you are suffering from AAD, please contact me at the following address: stabinthelight@earthlink.net

Again, in a way similar to Scientology, such victims of both Exopolitical belief and Consumer belief will probably have to be deprogrammed, eventually. Both descriptions of experience sound like the results of an applied MKULTRA programme after being given a modern consumer-led eschatological makeover. The victims are being dosed as if by a re-vamped brand of metaphysical detergent. This is Huxley, rather than Orwell: no drugs, electric shocks or beatings, just an almost pleasant feeling of having lost a particular subliminal edit during a commercial break.

In this, Exopolitics has parallels with the Millennial and Rapture Cults of the deep past. One is also reminded also of the cut movements of Benjamin Crème, the Moonies and Hari Khristina cults. Though it is still too young in the cultural tooth to be regarded anthropologically as a genuine Western cargo-cult, this is almost certainly the final form of Exopolitics.

The God-Agenda

“I do not rely on (David) Icke’s work because he is not a credible source. He has taken some information about Reptoids from the work of Sitchen and others and mixed it with wild-eyed conspiracy theories so as to appeal to the broad and lucrative market of conspiracy buffs, information seekers, and racists. If you want to read about Jewish Reptilian banksters, and Reptilian English royalty dominating humanity, he’s your man. Were you aware that David Icke had a nervous breakdown on live TV in the UK and declared himself to be the son of God? He was banned from speaking in Canada because he is a known racist. The Grays came here and demanded the surrender. The Grays do not use humans as cattle per se. The Grays work for the Reptoids who do use us as cattle.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/prepare4contact/message/2525

The alien-creature situation as described here, though utterly fantastic, is localised in mundane space and time much as is a football match or a bus stop complaint about the weather. Note the precision, the assurance, the quite genuine honest tone. Take away the extraterrestrial alien theme, and the (published) author (obviously highly intelligent and in command of his subject), might well be addressing a sixth-form history class on Gladstone’s three Administrations, the financial reforms of Henry VII or the state of the Grand Fleet in 1914.  The whole set of ideas here is conceived as being unquestionably “real” as the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty. We note the truly marvellous accusation of falsehood:  Icke’s Reptoids are not quite bone fide. The assumption that one splash of non-existent water is quite different in character and substance to another splash of non-existent water is rather like the Zen illustration of one hand clapping, or the celebrated discussion about how many angels can stand on the point of a pin. Since we are all smears of live bio-paste clinging to a rock flying through space, such specialised distinctions are a wonder surely more great than those fantastical beings called Grays or Reptoids, quite equivalent to the mythological beings of legend such as the Griffin, Centaur, Unicorn, or indeed Anubis, the dog-headed god of ancient Egypt.

Similar statements can be found in the work of Webre, Salla, and Basaigo whose hat-trick is to travel to a supposed human colony on Mars using a secret DARPA time machine! We might add Richard Hoagland to this list, whose Hale Bopp space ship full of Reptoids detected heading for Earth was one of the great hoaxes of the past few years, and created quite a stir in the Ufological community. The only positive effect of this con-trick was to create a magnificent new kind of cosmic entertainment structure which may indeed have been the whole and entire aim of this particular Exopolitical enterprise. As every good manipulator knows, giving people pleasure and amusement is far more effective as persuasion compared to banging would-be consumers on the head.

The Fabricated Totem

The important thing to realise about totems is that they can be manufactured readily. Using modern Web techniques the meme may be seen as a cell of the Web cyber-animal. Using story-technology we can design the internal structure of such an animal, particularly in pop culture, see http://www.gcnlive.com/wp/2010/07/02/popular-music-is-the-babylon-system/

Having noted the certainty and assurance with which Exopolitical statements are made, the whole business smacks of the statements of people who have been subtly manipulated using story technology rather than the traditional manipulation of “facts.” In fairy lore they manipulators are the Tellers of the Tale or Narrators, whose tribal role is as old as Methuselah. Exopolitical experience has such a highly specialised structure drawn from quite specific archetypal image arrays, suggesting that such experience was (and is) indeed quite synthetic in nature. In addition, this particular experience is a thing which contains such manically intense deliberation that we might indeed ask ourselves whether such modern “visionaries” are part of some conspiracy which is trying to create no less a modern psychology of the unconscious involving actors from a highly specialised belief spectrum.

Given such thoughts, it could well be that Exopolitics is some form of hidden prototypal Scientological agenda. The presence of Scientologist Bill Ryan alone as a generating force within the rather goofy Exopolitical Project Camelot is somewhat suspicious. Both Bill and Kerry are friends of David Icke, which is even more suspicious. Every time I hear these names, I grow another pile or (worse), I think I am with Perry Como underneath the mistletoe. Project Camelot has “interviewed” more whistle blowing foil-hat human TV Dinners than Sainsbury’s has sausage rolls. In this sense, some would say that Project Camelot is a fraudulent circus full of lies, disinformation, and rigged impostures that make Webre’s “Seattle Politics Examiner” look positively respectable.

Of course the trouble with such radical accusations is that all thought processes contain such hilarious crap if only as a defence against taking life too seriously and killing our silly selves. We are therefore truly thankful that we can reasonably assume that in order to prevent suicides, any alien culture will contain as much pantomime garbage as Project Camelot. If so, we will have some wondrous existential reference problems to solve if and when aliens arrive. The prospect of one joke system trying to interpret another of the same ilk is interesting. Assuming the aliens have different cultural levels and each one has a joke system full of very different kinds of life-giving absurdity and nonsense-play, the possibilities for wondrous misinterpretation and truly marvellous confusion are profound.

Of course considering Project Camelot again, we might consider that the threat from aliens might not come from their intelligence or their technology but from their stupidity. The idea of an alien equivalent to Project Camelot must surely bring sighs of relief all round.

Scientology and Exopolitics

Though Scientology itself denies any connection with supposed extraterrestrial aliens (see (http://www.scientologymyths.info/aliens/do-scientologists-believe-in-aliens.php), certainly it is at least theoretically possibly that Scientology might well have thought of creating an entirely new Web-born face for its central concept of auditing. Auditing means quite simply taking the mind through a complex meditational calculus theoretically supposed to dump waste and extraneous noise and achieve a better mental focus and control of the thinking process. Similarly, Exopolitics leads us into a synthetic story-continuum of certain highly processed story-lines. Both processes are similar to the Communist dialectical process of politico-scientific indoctrination well described in the classic political novels of Orwell, Huxley and Koestler. In Koestler’s novel Darkness at Noon the basic psychology of Communist methods concerning change of psycho-social perception is outlined. In the case of Exopolitics, the first target-audience for this kind of updated story-technology was the Ufological audience, ever-ready for alien daring-do of any and every kind. In this they have become a host for parasitical meme-swarms of every kind.

In this respect, the whole framework of Exopolitics smacks of Scientological thinking in terms of analogies which might well have been borrowed from that latter culture. Exopolitics is certainly a similar attempt to manufacture a world designed (and design is the key concept here), to replace possibly a broad range of common experience as received au natural. As a postmodern movement, Exopolitics is certainly a lot more exciting than plain old Scientological “auditing,” which is the name of that apparatus for mental control constructed by Ron Hubbard (1911-1986), who was undoubtedly a genius of his day. Hubbard himself claimed always that Scientology was a religion, and certainly he managed to get it registered as a religion in the United States, if not in the United Kingdom. This meant of course that he was in the god-agenda business right from the beginning, with all that means regarding synthetic metaphysics.

Compared to MK 1 Scientology, Exopolitics is visual, dramatic, and perhaps Scientologists discovered Web possibilities from the very earliest days of Internet operation and had decided to construct Exopolitics as a new and exciting dimension of image-auditing suitable for a Web Age. It is possible also that due to the often comical claims and extreme radicalism of Exopolitics, that any New Model Scientology as it were would have to distance itself very much from the Old Model of 1952, which though somewhat digital in itself, was rooted in a pre-digital yesteryear and contained no visual dimension.

After the death of Hubbard, younger Scientological thinkers might have felt that it was time to move on from a rather rigid past. Perhaps such thinkers felt that the first decade of the new century needed visual systems rather than those based on print and literary forms.

It would not have taken a very bright creature such as Hubbard long to see that the emerging Age was going to be an experience based on images mounted by the rapidly increasing power of Big Technology and  Big Media. Despite some extremely objectionable personal characteristics, Hubbard might also have been bright enough to see that that Big Science (as General Groves of Los Alamos called it) might stumble alongside Big Media and be reduced to a technological support base for the mounting of powerful image-based theologies rather discovering “objective facts.” Thus possibly were the Scientological-cum-Exopolitical god-agendas constructed, if only by analogy.

The word “constructed” here is used because in the decade after the death of Hubbard the idea of constructing “imagined” worlds and inserting them into the running narrative of the core stories arrived. The idea was not new. Propaganda disguises itself, goes through its own propagandistic development. In the pre-digital world, we had plain “propaganda,” then “dramatised documentary,” and (a little later) a thing called “faction.” All these different experimental levels of electronic communication succeeded one another in a very short time due to the almost vertical acceleration of electronic progress.

With the appearance of the early Internet the concept of “disinformation” emerged, and the SERPO, UMMO and CARET memes appear, giving conspiracy theory a new name and a new Web-borne energy.

We now have Exopolitics as the latest version of a form of superluminal persuasion.

The Military-Industrial-Entertainment Complex

As an idea, mechanical “fact” as a measurable resource is now so beleaguered it is being forced to construct its very own fantasy Big Media agenda in terms derived mainly from the so-call “new cosmology.” Elements within this agenda are as fantastic as anything Salla, Webre or the good Dr. Boylan could offer. The CERN Collider is already producing as many metaphors as facts and as for Hawking’s Black Hole theology, it has to use the present tense to describe cosmic events, even though according to the generally accepted Theory of Relativity, the light from the nearest stars takes million of years to reach Earth. The Hubble therefore is taking pictures of events which may well have long ceased to exist!

The “fact” is that to use the correct past tense to describe cosmic events would be intolerably depressing. Readers should select a paragraph from Hawking and re-write it using the past tense, and they will see what is meant here.

This utterly absurd situation represents a dialectic crisis between brand-name mythologies rather than old-fashioned “objective science.” Hawking and his team of cultural propagandists are, no less, twisting both language and concept in order to give “information” about a cosmological state of affairs which no longer exists in what Big Media calls “real time,” a metaphysical joke if ever there was. They are using this falsehood to justify the continuation of a “measurement” culture which is just as fantastic a concept as any Exopolitical ideas about “communication” with alien spaceship full of Reptoids and Greys.

We may conclude therefore that language, communication and culture are essentially linked productions involving style and presentation as much as if they were on a fashion catwalk.

Thus under threat, the so-called “real” system as constellated has no qualms about programming counter-theatres which at a brief glance appear “authentic” if only because such supposed “real” systems have a hell of a lot more going for them in terms of being brand leaders in Prime Time. “Hard” truth is the usual metaphor used by “real” systems, just as Newton’s atoms were called “hard” before discovery of their electromagnetic interior and their Quantum characteristics.

Therefore the management of metaphor is very important as regards the formation of cultural mythologies. If we laugh at Exopolitics, we might bare in mind that the great institutions (Religion, Royalty, Glamour, Entertainment, Big Media, are all “false” in the sense that they are all based on powerful manipulations of a similar kind of double-think based on a form of irresistible non-sexual pornography.

The Entertainment Factor

The one good thing about Exopolitics is that it offers moments of high comedy. Here is noted blogger Dan Smith’s almost off-hand references to his “CIA handler.” This is straight out of a Tony Hancock script, leaving us to imagine Sid James’ response over the breakfast table in East Cheam. For the record here is the reply of the CIA handler concerned, one  Ron Pandolfi:

“Ever since I met Dan, I have consistently told him that I have absolutely no interest in his Jesus complex, UFOs, aliens, or eschatology. Yet he persists with the fabrication of a Ron & Dan show! Dan is a family friend, welcome for a barbecue and occasional outings. NOTHING MORE!” (email)

It appears that jokes about CIA “handlers” of various kinds and other creatures deep in the US Intelligence community have replaced old-fashioned “my psychiatrist” jokes. The joke line now is not “my psychiatrist told me,” or “I consulted my guru,” but “my CIA hander told me…” These references replaced old Radio and music-hall jokes about politicians, mothers-in-law, and the high prices charged by blacksmiths and horse fodder providers.

Dan is in trouble because old-fashioned Politics and Religion have gone almost entirely from meaningful modern thinking. Mass corruption and manipulated slaughter have shredded politics of all credibility and the Christian religion of whatever kind has vanished with the horses in the street. With Mysticism and the Occult beaten into a corner by the undoubted physical success of  Big Science, all that remains in Western society as a basis for what might be called “belief” is the scientific ideology of the military-Industrial-complex and its much-vaunted technology. According to scientific futurist Ray Kurtzweil, our future is essentially mechanical, consisting of an ever-accelerating vertical rise of product development, scientific “breakthroughs” and physical “improvements” of many a Meccano kidney.

But like most straight scientists, Kurtzweil appears not have reached even the TV Age yet, never mind the Web. Like most of his colleagues he thinks probably that TV is something to keep the kids quiet whilst he gets on with sorting out the “laws” of the “factual” and “real” Rules and Regulations universe, considered by latter-day Victorian Station Masters to be very much a non-moveable feast.

Apparently the absorption of billions of powerful images per second plays no part in modern “scientific” ideas of “causation,” which are still conceived as being essentially mechanical. As in the days of Victorian Station Master science, apparently to be “real,” one thing has to bang against another thing.

Any culture thrives by re-supplying a constant stream of system-gods, and this entails necessarily a good supply of good new god-designs. Replacement of such comically antiquated father-figures as the psychiatrist (or the economist) leads us to the central mystery of cultural formation. The “whistleblower” and the “secret insider informant” are just two of the many avatars which have replaced the guru, the saint, the priest, and many other discredited comic-book heroes and heroines of the deep past. For spiritual succour, we are left with the Pop Star and the Military-Industrial-Complex.

The Disclosure Movement  in particular and Ufology in general goes down on its knees asking for the slightest atom of revelation concerning the belief that this same said Complex holds the secret of the UFO. The scant bits and piece of UFO “evidence” are regarded as the modern equivalent to pieces of the True Cross in mediaeval times.

The truth is that the last big faith-based system, namely free-market Corporate Capitalism has failed us. It is now the turn of much-vaunted Big Science to fall flat on its face. Meantime, what Dan Smith and many other Disclosure types want is True Religion. But the Pentagon as Kafka’s Castle on the hill won’t give it to him, if only because most probably it doesn’t have all that much to give. Thus religious heat is projected into the mythological dark: “the beloved Authorities are keeping something from us” cry the spiritually-starved folk.

This participation mystique between actors and audience between Product and psycho-social Mystique here goes back a long way.  It smacks of political manipulations concerning tomb-mysteries, urn-burials, Christ-shrouds, and old bones in old caskets.

Allegorically, both Dan Smith and Alfred Webre are still on the road to Canterbury in 1380 with Chaucer’s pilgrims and their appetite for the latest products of the continuous-process Miracle Industry. There will of course be a few new arrivals on that road. The Scientist and the Exopolitical Ufologist will have made an historical appearance trotting on their horses alongside the Miller, the Reeve and the Wife of Bath. They will help extend and re-develop the mythology of Belief.

In the case considered here, in order to protect itself from the baffled UFO penitents, the equally baffled Priests of the Pentagon techno-mysterium will throw out a few crumbs occasionally to the pilgrims whilst it considers the situation and watches its back to cover itself should the “bugs” arrive. But even almost-real crumbs are rare and expensive, and so crumbs have to be manufactured. The sheeple, ever-grateful for any kind of crumb from the High Table, won’t bother about distinctions. They will willingly gulp down this very mixed diet, ever-grateful for even almost-sustenance. The word “almost” is a key word in these discussions. It keeps the sheeple salivating. Thus does the gaming situation appear within the controlled diet of different levels of managed perception.

Ufology Exopolitics Special – Source A Update


Michael SallaThe majority of people who have read our “Source A Exposed” report know they have read a comprehensive and well documented  account of deceit and deception. The tale of intergalactic politics and sentient rocks should never have stood the test of time in the first place, but the people running the show made sure theirs was a tight ship, it was next to impossible to verify even a single aspect of the story. When chinks did appear, such as the Katrina rapes that never were, they were glossed over and ignored.

However, our detailed investigation and subsequent report of the true story behind the Source A information cannot be ignored. Our facts are of the real kind, the kind which can be checked and verified.

The supporters and enablers of the Source A story have therefore attempted to attack our reveal from a different angle. Michael Salla, one of, if not THE principal supporter of Clay and Shawn Pickering’s story, has been very active in what could loosely be termed as damage control.

At OM, here in the comments section of the site and on his own site, he has fastened on to one particular aspect of our investigation and attacked it for all he is worth. His problem? My deliberately ignoring that part of Maccabee’s testimony that was contrary to my intended ‘exposure’. (He conveniently forgets this was a group effort and not the result of one person’s investigation)

Let’s examine Salla’s claim in more detail. He refers to the following section of the report:

“The information we already had was more than sufficient to nail this down, but this was, after all, the man who had personally met with Source A on a navy base and indirectly ended up vouching for him.  I called him up a couple of days later and had a very productive conversation. Whilst on the phone, I told him that we had discovered the name of Source A and I wondered whether Source A had identified himself by name to him. He said he had, to which I replied “Richard?” he answered by saying “Yeah Richard, Richard Theilmann”.

Salla argues:

“Unfortunately, for Broadbent he omits to mention that the same source he used to confirm his outing of Source A, directly contradicts his ‘exposé’. The source in question is recently retired Navy scientist Dr Bruce Maccabee who in 2008 was still working at the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center, in Virginia.  This is what Maccabee had to say in a 2009 interview about a meeting he had with Source A in 2008.”

He did get that part right, Bruce Maccabee was indeed our source who confirmed Richard Theilmann’s identity for us. Unfortunately for Salla, this would be the only thing he does get right in response to our article.

Salla then quotes Bruce Maccabee:

“First of all, I work at a Navy Laboratory, at the time, he visited me, I think it was in April 2008. In a Navy Laboratory in order to get in you had to have credentials, you had to have clearances, a badge that would allow you to come in, and even if you get in, you might need an escort, if you didn’t have a sufficiently high clearance. Well Source A came right to my office, without any escort. Which tells me he had the credentials. He gave me a review of all the things he had done over the years. It … certainly looked real. At the very least, he was able to go right through the security of the laboratory and came right through to my desk. I told him how to get to the office and he did it.”

Salla continued (in part)

“So here we have a respected senior Navy scientist confirming that Source A had genuine credentials, and a very high security clearance as well to enable him to enter the facility unescorted.”

In light of the information to follow further below, quite how Salla can go from “..which tells me had the credentials” to “had genuine credentials” is anyone’s guess. The same applies to stating as fact that Source A had “a very high security clearance”.

From speaking with Bruce on the phone, I had the distinct impression that he had been conned by Source A and perhaps others in respect to the base access issue. There were a number of options on the table which could explain how Source A could gain access to the facility, but I didn’t dwell on this aspect because it wasn’t important based on everything else we had uncovered.

Time to Dwell

As it stands, there are a number of ways Source A could have gained access to the base and Maccabee’s office. Firstly, and considering what we had already discovered about Richard Theilmann and the inconsistencies in the Pickering’s story, he could have faked his way in.

Salla only gives a cursory glance to this possibility, with the following comment on this blog:

“If a hoax is what is occurring, that would at the least invite a Congressional investigation of lax security procedures at the Naval Warfare Center that allowed an alleged ‘hoaxer’ to walk around unescorted in the post 911 error [sic].”

Bryce Weiner, one of the researchers involved in this investigation, showed how “the ability for individuals to fake credentials to gain access to military facilities in a post-9/11 era is quite well established.” and provides the following examples:

Man faked his way into Army as an NCO

5 fake Army Chaplains arrested

Fake Naval officer arrested

Another possibility that would explain how Theilmann was able to access the facility, would be his previous service in the US Navy. I checked the visitor information for the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division  – Bruce Macabee’s place of employment when visited by Theilmann sometime around April 2008 – in order to better understand the security procedures for the base.

http://www.navsea.navy.mil/nswc/dahlgren/PAO/visitInfo.aspx

Standard Facility Access:

All visitors access the facility via the Main Gate. Visitors will be issued a visitor badge, which must be returned to the gate upon departure.”

The fact that the base has a standard facility access highlights how one does not need any classified security clearances in order to access the base. RU admin Access Denied showed how a retired naval officer, for example, may want to access the base in order to use the Commissary (grocery store) or the Exchange (general store) facilities available to all retired members of the US Navy. Dahlgren has both of these stores on site.

Base Vehicle Pass:

Visitors will be issued a vehicle pass, when deemed necessary, at the Pass and ID office. A valid drivers license is required.”

Nope, no special credentials or highly classified security clearances needed there, either.

There is no need for us to comment on the “Submission of visit requests for classified visits” section, because as we will see further below, there is absolutely no need for us to do so.

Bruce Maccabee


The Real Deal

Prompted by Salla’s constant accusations of disingenuity regarding our “omission” of Bruce Maccabee’s expert testimony, we decided to contact him again.

RU’s Ryan Dube once again opened discussions with Dr. Maccabee, asking for further clarification regarding the meeting with Richard Theilmann.

Bruce replied a short time later:

“Haven’t had a contact from anyone regarding the “Affair of A”.
As for getting onto the Navy base is concerned, I offered to meet him at the check-in entry building, assuming that he would need an escort.
However, he assured me that he could enter without an escort…. and obviously he was correct.
He arrived within a few minutes of the planned time.”

Realising that this was info already in the public domain, Ryan knew that more information was needed in order to discover exactly what the requirements were – as understood by Bruce:

“Thanks for the response Bruce,

According to this document, you don’t need an escort, you only need to have an appointment with someone on base:

http://www.navsea.navy.mil/nswc/dahlgren/PAO/visitInfo.aspx

As you’ve stated below, you and he had agreed upon a “planned time” when he would arrive – so is it safe to assume that he had an appointment to meet with you? According to the document above, if he had an appointment with you, he could simply pick up the visitor badge at the main gate. There’s nothing in the visitor information page that mentions anything about needing an escort.

Can you confirm?

-Ryan”

Keen to receive a response and after hearing nothing for several hours, Ryan sent a further email:

“Bruce, could you please confirm that the information Steve found is true and that Richard did not need an escort to visit you on the base, only an appointment?

SNIP

You’ve stated that you *assume* he’d need an escort. The documentation from the base shows that he only needed an appointment, not an escort. I hope you can understand how important it is that you confirm the truth and let us know if he really needed an escort or not – not just whether you assume as much.

Thanks Bruce – again, I really appreciate your insight on this.

-Ryan”

This time Bruce did reply:

“I thought I answered this question before.
I had assumed he would need an escort and said I would meet him at the entry office when he arrived.
He said he didn’t need an escort.
And, evidently he didn’t.  He showed up at my office within minutes of the appointed time.
That meant he drove through the guard gate and followed a map of the lab to the building where I
worked.
To get through the guard gate he would have had to have a badge or a “common access card”  that
would have been checked by the guard.”

Ryan, being the excellent researcher he is, knew we needed specific clarification on this issue and responded with the following important questions:

“Bruce…I understand your point, but people are using your description of the visit to imply that Richard had high-level classified clearances.

According to the visitor rules that Steve found here: (http://www.navsea.navy.mil/nswc/dahlgren/PAO/visitInfo.aspx)

You mention below that he would have needed a badge – according to the document above, this could have been a visitor badge:

“All visitors access the facility via the Main Gate. Visitors will be issued a visitor badge, which must be returned to the gate upon departure.”

A “visitor” is defined as anyone with an appointment on the facility, and you will notice that the document differentiates between a simple facility visit and a “classified” visit…for some reason you don’t make that differentiation in your own description of the visit.

Salla and others are using your description of the visit to imply that because Richard was able to gain entrance to the facility, that he had classified clearances – however, the official visitor guidelines for the base state that a visitor can visit the facility without security clearances, so long as the visit isn’t a “classified visit”. Please take a look at the link above for the differentiation.

I guess what I’m asking is – isn’t it possible that he was there to visit someone else for non-classified reasons, and decided it would be a good opportunity to visit you? What if someone else at your facility signed for him as a visitor? What if there was an event or a Navy function he was attending at the facility, as a visitor?  Aren’t there dozens of reasons he could have had access to the facility that don’t necessarily imply he has special classified clearances?

-Ryan”

The questions had the desired effect and Dr. Maccabee responded to Ryan later that day and was much more specific with his answers (emphasis added):

“My recollection is that a visitor badge had a big “V” on the front.  I didn’t have that many unclassified visitors over the years so my memory is hazy on this.  But my recollection is that he did not have a “V” badge.
However, I could be wrong on this.  I didn’t pay close attention to all the details of the visit because I didn’t foresee this controversy.  I was doing C&S P a “favor” by agreeing to meet “A”.  So far as I knew, they had much more information than I had about “A” and his testimony.   He certainly did not need a high level clearance to have an unclassified visit with me. However, because of all the “hush hush” activities and the claim by C&S P that he was working for an Admiral, I assumed he had a high level clearance. He never said anything to me that would make me think that he had no clearance level.  Had I thought that I was supposed to be thoroughly vetting this person I would have taken notes at the time and I would have written down all the pertinent info on his badge.

At any rate, the truth or falsity of his various claims will be determined by further investigation.”

Boom!
Boom! That is the sound of Salla and Co’s hopes and dreams for the Source A story exploding around their ears. The one remaining aspect of the story -in their eyes at least- that these people could use to prove to others there MUST be something to the story, has gone up in a cloud of white hot shrapnel and billowing smoke. Salla’s assertions that Theilmann gaining access to the base and meeting with Maccabee “supports his claims that he was a covert operative for classified programs involving senior US Navy personnel” are thus completely and utterly without merit.

Bruce says he didn’t pay attention to all the details of the visit and was actually doing Clay and Shawn Pickering a FAVOR by agreeing to meet Source A! One can only speculate why Clay and Shawn would need such a favour. To lend veracity to their claims, perhaps?

In case you missed it above, Bruce also confirms that Source A “certainly did not need a high level clearance to have an unclassified visit” with him. Bruce confirms that he only assumed he had a high level clearance based on what he was told by the Pickerings.

That Richard Theilmann accessed the base is without question. However, there were any number of ways he could have done this, none of which necessitate the need for any kind of classified clearances whatsoever. The people pushing this story need you to believe that he did have such access, because without it, the story is dead in the water.

It is clear to us that Bruce Maccabee was used as an unwitting pawn in the game being played by the Pickerings. Based on Salla’s extensive comments on this subject and past behaviour promoting the outlandish claims, one would be forgiven for wondering if he – and others in the exopolitics crowd – are more heavily involved in this apparent con game than at first thought.

This is something we are actively investigating.

Richard Theilmann

There has been one other major development in the Source A investigation. I spoke with Richard Theilmann on the telephone today and had a brief, but amicable conversation with him. Due to the  nature of the information discussed, I shall refrain from mentioning any details for the time being. However, further calls have been arranged and we will be reporting on these conversations in the very near future.

Stay tuned for further updates.

Ufology Exopolitics Special: Source A Exposed!


Hold the Pickles and the Special Source

The UN Building in New YorkWhat is Source A?

“Source A” is allegedly an active-duty officer in the United States Navy with a long and illustrious career, spanning nearly 40 years at sea. Nothing remarkable about that, surely? Well, as soon as you factor in the information that this particular individual liaises with Extra Terrestrial races on behalf of the UN, his career suddenly takes on a much more remarkable angle. The aforementioned ET’s allegedly have a direct political involvement in our (human) affairs, but damn, I don’t remember voting reptilian!

The fantastical story as told by “Source A” is a huge hit amongst the Exopolitical crowd, for obvious reasons. One would be forgiven for thinking that this particular story couldn’t have come along at a better time for people like Salla, Greer, Webre, Komarek et al. Two previously little known individuals, brothers by the names of Clay and Shawn Pickering, are solely to thank for catapulting this story onto an unsuspecting public in early 2008 and they have been keeping us updated ever since. Their unflinching devotion to the message is a credit to their stamina and willpower. The many obvious flaws in the story have been pointed out to them countless times, yet still they remain, still they continue. They have of course been helped by the venue they have chosen to promote this exopolitical wet dream; the “Open Minds” forum.

The Open Minds forum is well known throughout the ufological community as a place for fantasists and would-be-hoaxers to peddle their wares in comfort and without fear of reprisal. Many of those OM members who have cried foul at the Pickering’s claims, have found themselves summarily suspended and in some cases permanently banned for their troubles.

How fitting then, that it would be there that the significant first nail in the coffin of the Source A “disclosure” would be hammered home. They just didn’t know it yet.

Secret Meetings: Intrigue and Suspense

On the 9th April this year, Clay Pickering, posting as ‘temporal’ at OM, posted the following short message along with the attached photo (resized and rotated for convenience):

“Hey OMF, here’s an attachment I want you to have a look at.”

Navy League Luncheon Navy League Luncheon

Followed quickly by the posting of another photo (on the right, above)

What was going on here?, we wondered.  We didn’t have too long to wait before he posted the following :

“Dear OMF,

Recently I was at a “function” that involved Chief of Naval Operations/Admiral Gary Roughhead. Admiral Roughhead before 130 people (Navy & State Dept. & UN delegates) discussed the future of the Navy and its policies with nation-states. Needles to say, the admiral’s lecture was fascinating. For now, until I am given permission on what I can say about the event and “WHO” attended (no names or ranks will be forthcoming), I will refrain from commenting on the specifics. Yes, our source was there. Yes, I was the ONLY participant not on the original list and had to be “vetted” by Four different people in order to get in. Yes, our source had to vouch for me.

And most importantly of all, I met our source’s (third) counterpart to the UN!”

The implications of the message were quite clear, and Michael Salla arrived barely minutes later to reinforce the apparent significance of the meeting with the following post:

“Thanks Clay for sharing this information. I’m excited by the implications of you being given permission to start revealing what you heard and who was in attendance at the ‘function’ featuring Admiral Roughhead. Especially, the meeting with Source A’s (third) replacement at the UN with responsibility over the UFO discussions that have been secretly occurring in various fora since Source A’s replacement. The photo is significant since it shows that someone had to pull various strings to get you into that ‘function’, and that senior people in the Navy approve of your presence, and the implications of senior Navy personnel being discussed in relation UFO disclosure. So I look forward to more coming and thank you for your incredible patience in dealing with the public on this very complex and sensitive topic.”

Just in case there could be any confusion, Clay reiterated that this was clearly a highly secure and important meeting:

“I know there will be many questions, please be patient. Again, we want to respect security and the wishes that the participants shall remain anonymous.”

Followed by yet more intrigue and secrecy barely minutes later:

“We learned of this event with very little notice. This was purposely done to guarantee that security would be high with no advance warning, hence the nature of the vetting process. What also spoke volumes to Shawn and me is the high regard our source’s brethern hold him ( I conveyed the elements to Shawn later). Geez…talk about our guy working a room (lol). I can tell you guys without a doubt I was looked over pretty good; especially, source’s counterpart. Solid eye contact was made towards me by the counterpart when counterpart saw “our guy” speaking to me. It was at a later point that I introduced myself to the counterpart and engaged in small talk. The counterpart is a pro and our guy has a very high regard for this person. Yes, our guy was involved with briefing the counterpart about a week before the Korean hubbaloo. We learned this later by the way. Keep in mind guys, nothing was broached by me about the phenomena. I felt it was best to just observe and listen.

When your the only guy not vetted prior to the event, you better hold your cards close. Also, the event required that everyone pay sixty dollars a plate. I was relieved that I was asked to pay after I got vetted. The chicken tastes better and no one likes a crasher (lol).

Again guys, please refrain from asking any specific questions at this point. I just got off the phone (clicking like hell by the way) with our guy and told him we need to sit down and be clear on what I can say. This may take a little time.”

The above comments by Pickering and Salla are extremely important  in order to accurately determine their agenda and intent by posting such information. The reader is left in no doubt as to the significance and implications of this function: Disclosure is real and it’s happening now. Indeed it is. Let’s have some real disclosure.

What really happened: The Navy League Luncheon

Former Open Minds co-administrator ‘JeddyHi’, first name John, posted some real disclosure barely hours after the above comments had been made:

“Temp, your making this sound way more mysterious than it really is.

The photo is from the New York Athletic Club where the Admiral addressed the New York Council of the Navy League.

Cost to attend the Admiral’s speech, for members, $50.00.

Non- members, $60.00.

At least that price included open bar with wine, beer and soft drinks!

The Admiral had a busy day. He also stopped at NYU Poly Tech and the New York City Yacht Club where he talked about the same thing….the mission of the Navy and its global effects.

I wonder if State Dept personnel and UN delegates were present for that one as well. ;)”

Clearly, Mr. Pickering hadn’t counted on anyone actually checking into the details of Admiral Roughhead’s PUBLIC speaking engagements! The Navy League Luncheon was a public event and had been advertised as such on their official website for weeks beforehand.  John not only checked the details online, he also went directly to the source and contacted one of the organisers of the luncheon, Mr Rick Kenney, the Executive Director of the New York Navy League.

Hello,

I was wondering if you could clarify something. The recent luncheon (April 8th) with Admiral Roughead at the New York Athletic Club was attended by an acquaintance I know who claimed that the luncheon was also attended by State Dept personnel and UN delegates. He also claimed that no note taking was allowed. He definitely attended the function as he has a picture of himself with the Admiral in the background. I know that tickets to non-members were offered but I am surprised at his claim of State Dept personnel and UN delegates being present for a lecture/luncheon that was for intents and purposes a ‘public’ event. Does my aquaintance perhaps exaggerate?

Thanks for any insight.

MR. *:  A cursory review of our records indicates that you are not currently a member of the New York Council of the Navy League.  Hence, I am puzzled at the reason for, and context of, your inquiry to this office.  Based on the claims you present, it appears that your unnamed “friend” is misinformed.  The CNO’s appearance was publicized, and was indeed intended as, a “public event,” as are most of his presentations.  He was accompanied by members of his own staff.  There were no “State Department personnel” in attendance.  There were also no “UN Delegates” in attendance. There were members of one or more foreign consular staffs in the room as guests of members of the Navy League and/or Naval Order, which co-sponsored the event.  This is nothing out of the ordinary, and they are, of course, part of the public at large, which we are pleased to welcome to any and all our sponsored events.  RICK

John also sought clarification from Joe Buff, a defensetech.org  blogger who attended the event and reported as such with his article CNO Reflects on Navy “Tipping Point” Factors. Joe confirmed the same thing as Rick Kenney; the luncheon was a public event, the list of attendees was public knowledge, there was no secrecy surrounding the event and what’s more, members of the public were actively encouraged to attend! Quite different indeed from the cloak and dagger intrigue the Pickering’s and friends had attempted to portray.

While this event was to turn into a major source of embarrassment for the Pickering’s and Source A, they couldn’t possibly have known exactly how bad things were going to get.

Faces in a Crowd

In the spirit of the gathering being a public event, the Navy League itself posted a large number of photographs from the luncheon on their website, 100 of them to be precise! CNO Luncheon 2010.

This public sharing of information, along with the tenacity of two people who were sick and tired of this charade being played by the Pickering’s and associated hanger’s on, would finally yield a breakthrough in the quest for the truth of the Source A tale.

John, we have already read about. Enter Andy Murray, a colourful character known to many by his online handle Murnut (latterly Mur) at the infamous Open Minds forum, the popular conspiracy website Amkon.net, and of course here at Reality Uncovered.

Andy used to be a prolific poster at Open Minds, but that counted for nothing in the eyes of the OM powers-that-be when he ended up getting himself banned for his unrelenting sceptical stance against the Pickering’s.

Around the time of the Navy League Fiasco, we contacted John and enquired about the possibility of working together in an attempt to crack open the Source A case. We had seen his valiant attempts at exposing the nonsense behind the story fall on largely deaf ears, so we thought a collaborative effort might have more success. John agreed and suggested we bring Andy on board, an offer we immediately accepted. This collaborative approach was exactly what was needed and we didn’t have long to wait for it to bear the ripest of fruits.

Clay's table at the Navy LuncheonThanks to the Pickering’s posting their photos of Admiral Roughhead to their Source A thread, AND the Navy League posting 100 photos of the event to their official website, Andy and John were able to narrow down the suspects for the Source A character down to just two or three likely candidates. They did this simply by identifying where in the room Clay’s photos were shot from and correlating that perspective with the many photos available on the Navy League website.

It was a simple, yet brilliant piece of investigative skill. What’s more, there would be more to come.

Clay's table at the Navy League Luncheon

Narrowing down the list of suspects from three to one wasn’t going to be easy, but fortunately for us, the Pickering’s made this task much easier by having Source A visit with a number of well known members of the Ufology circuit. RU’s Ryan Dube has maintained an amicable working relationship with one of those people, so when Andy asked us if we could contact him and ask him to verify, Ryan jumped at the chance and fired off an email containing a number of photos and some background information.

 

Imagine our excitement when little over an hour later, he replied with the following:

“My recollection of him suggests that he is the guy at the left in the light colored suit

http://www.nynavyleague.org/cpg/displayimage.php?album=24&pos=12

The other suggested photos show very dark images, some of which might be poor pictures of him.”

Enter stage left, Source A:

For the first time since the story began, Source A now had a face. He was still anonymous, but now in name only. Remarkably, thanks to the combined efforts of Andy and John, within a few short hours we also had his name.

CSI New York: Identifying Source A

The picture identified by our source yielded a very important clue. He was wearing a pin on his lapel, along with a tie-pin depicting an aircraft. The lapel pin, the US Flag above a blue cross was identified by John as being the symbol of the “Naval Order of the United States”, a naval society with Commanderies in many US Cities; New York included.

Andy didn’t need any further encouragement. He quickly found the website of the New York Naval Order Commandery and set about searching for further clues. In an ideal world, a world where scriptwriters make the rules perhaps, he would find another photo of the person identified as being Source A and he would be sporting a name tag. Of course, such things only happen in the movies and poorly written novels, don’t they?

No, no they don’t.

Richard Theilmann aka Source A

The 17th picture along gave us precisely that. Source A wearing a name tag! Move over Source A, say hello to Richard Theilmann.

Link to original

It was a fantastic spot by Andy and the find prompted a frenzy of searching for further references to Richard Theilmann. We can thank all that is good that he isn’t called Richard Smith! Theilmann is a much easier name to find relevant results for. By this time, Andy, John and the RU team had been joined by Bryce Weiner, a member of conspiracy website Amkon.net who goes by the name of Cogburn. The threads at Amkon had become the place to go to if one wanted to discuss the material released by the Pickering’s with any semblance of logic and reason.
It was Bryce who found Theilmann’s contact details and it was also he who found a veritable treasure trove of information on his MySpace site. Yes, that’s right. Earth’s ambassador to alien races has a MySpace website.

Social Networking, ET Style

http://www.myspace.com/41826877

Richard Theilmann's MySpaceThere could be no doubt that this was the person we were looking for. He had kindly provided a wealth of information and photographs which confirmed beyond all suspicion that this was the man with Clay Pickering at the New York Navy League Luncheon and the same man pictured on the New York Commandery website of the US Naval Order. Richard Theilmann, male, 56 years old of Astoria, New York. Luckily for us, there aren’t a great many Richard Theilmann’s in the whole of the US, never mind New York. His age and location confirmed the details unearthed by Bryce as being accurate.

We couldn’t wait to read all about this very important person, and from the man himself, no less. Let us not forget, even if only a little of what we are led to believe about him is true, this person, Richard Theilmann aka Source A, would be one of the most important human beings who had ever lived!

“Ok, I’m an outgoing, friendly guy who people tell me that I give way too much of myself. So I guess selfish is not one of my faults. I love to flirt and enjoy talking to people. I’ve been known to be that guy who starts conversations at the bar or at parties. Love to party and dance, although I can’t quite do ballroom dancing but I’d love to take lessons with a sexy female.”

Hmm, not quite what we were expecting from our VIP, but let’s continue:

“OK, Now we get to the sex part………… Nothing is more powerful or erotic as a woman who is turned on and wants it as much as I do. I really prefer to play with a woman who enjoys herself. Chemistry is all the thing. Now, I could go on and on and talk about ……………. but you’ll have to email me.”

Now that is definitely NOT what we were expecting from our ambassador to the universe!

As if that wasn’t enough, he lets us in on some more of his “secrets”. Towards the end of the biography section is this snippet:

“Oh, and as for being a Male Slave…. it’s all around great fun and a blast of a party ice breaker. Privately, with the right woman it’s awsome, and, yes, that IS a lock on my balls….. the birthday girl gets the key”

Richard Theilmann aka Source A like you've never seen him before

Is this the kind of person who we want taking care of our intergalactic affairs? It’s a Rhetorical question, there aren’t any intergalactic affairs to take care of in the first place.

Further clues to his real identity were quickly forthcoming. With all of us searching at the same time, it was sometimes difficult to keep up with relevant leads and information, events were moving at a frenetic pace and it was imperative we didn’t miss anything.

Separating Fact from Fiction

The Naval Order website provided us with another important piece of the puzzle. On the NY homepageis a list of the Order’s leadership. Toward the bottom of the list we have Richard Theilman, but misspelled with one ‘n’. We know the correct spelling because it is listed elsewhere on the site and on his nametag in the picture above. Quite surprisingly, his name is listed as the “Asst. Chaplain” of the New York Commandery. Also surprising is the omission of rank. All active serving members of the Navy would normally be listed with their rank displayed alongside their name. We know he should be active because the Pickering’s have told us so often enough. In fact, they were quite specific regarding Theilmann’s career.

http://lucianarchy.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=unitednations&thread=4806&page=385#249471

“Not at all, Jeddyhi. Especially because the “reach” is coming from someone who has worn the uniform since 1968!; Especially since this officer has worked at Area 51.; Especially since this officer was tasked to be a diplomatic representative with the State Department, with military credentials, for disclosure to the UN; Especially since this officer met with his counterparts in Europe; Especially since this officer has and continues to liaise with the “boys topside”; Especially since this officer was able to get a non-listed (not cleared) member into a very significant luncheon using his pull; Especially since this officer allowed me to meet his UN counterparts; And most importantly, especially because this officer is a gentleman and has never lied to us.”

We are expected to believe that he had “worn the uniform” since 1968, yet we now know he is 56 years old, born in 1953 in fact. In 1968 this would make him 15 years old, clearly impossible for him to have been in the Navy. What’s more, there is further proof that what the Pickering’s are telling us, couldn’t possibly be true. They have repeated often that he is still on active duty, but elsewhere on the Naval Order website is information that shows that to be another lie.

If we scroll down to the 4th photo, we see another picture of Richard, this time with his wife Mary, and the caption: “LCDR Richard and Mary Theilmann”. The Facebook site of the order gives the same rank for Richard, namely LCDR, which is short for “lieutenant commander”.

LCDR Richard Theilman and wife Mary

The LCDR officer rank is classed as a junior officer with a pay grade of o-4 (From WikiPedia). More senior ranks, from commander through captain and all the way up to admiral are ranked from o-5 to o-10 respectively. Surely we can be forgiven for thinking a task of such enormous importance as that allegedly carried out by Source A, should be given to someone with a more significant pay grade? It matters not, because as RU co-administrator Access Denied was to show, there is no way a LCDR could serve as long as 40 years or more in any case.

http://www.cbo.gov/doc.cfm?index=1772&type=0&sequence=2

“In addition to regulating promotion opportunity and timing, DOPMA (Defense Officer Personnel Management Act of 1980) provides for an “up-or-out” promotion system that further standardizes career patterns. Under that system, officers who are not promoted to O-2, O-3, or O-4 after being reviewed for promotion for the second time must leave the military. To complete 20 years of service and become eligible for retirement, officers must attain the pay grade of O-4.(2) To remain beyond 20 years, they must advance even farther. Officers in pay grades O-5 and O-6 may complete 28 and 30 years of service, respectively.

2. The service secretaries, however, have the authority to permit an officer in pay grade O-4 to remain on active duty until completing 24 years of service.”

We will soon know for sure exactly how long LCDR Richard Theilmann served his country for. One thing is for sure, it most certainly wasn’t 40 years and it is extremely doubtful it was even close to 20 years – if at all!

Rewriting History

The evidence against the Pickering’s was mounting fast. All over the internet we were finding clues and references that were allowing us to build up a picture of Theilmann’s life, a picture very much different to that portrayed by Clay and Shawn Pickering.

For example, we were led to believe that Theilmann, in the guise of Source A, was a veritable hero in the aftermath of the horrific Katrina hurricane that hit New Orleans in 2005.

http://lucianarchy.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=unitednations&thread=3620&page=207#150206

“When the devastation of Katrina had hit its zenith in New Orleans, a contingent of military VOLUNTEERS had made their way to the Superdome. One of those who VOLUNTEERED was our guy. When the contingent received word that there were gang rapes going on in the Superdome, our guy and a few Marines took part in finding these bottom-feeders. They would find the women who had been raped including some of their children and asked them to point out who took part in this abomination. The woman (with corroboration) proceeded to point out the rapists. Word spread quickly among the rapists that the military was arresting and rounding them up. This made things more difficult, obviously. The contingent would find these people [?] hiding in dirty laundry baskets, one in a container of feces and every place imaginable to get away. Some of these rapists would fight, some would just give up. By the time the contingent finally rounded up who they could find, it would be around twenty four rapists. There were far more who got away. Those found were arrested, tie-wrapped, and thrown in back of the RVs for detention.

One woman who our source administered to, was raped so badly that her bloody clothes had dried and stuck within her vagina. This woman sacrificed her body to stop the rapists from doing the same to her daughter. With her permission, this woman let our guy pour warm water over the area to loosen the cloth so a topical medicine could be applied. Once this was done, our guy applied a bandage and nylons to stop the bleeding. This woman who gave a man permission to do this, watched and cried as he relieved her pain. When our guy was finished, the woman sat up and gave our guy a tender kiss on the cheek that made his heart melt.”

This was truly an unbelievable story. Unbelievable being the operative word. Andy, under the guise of Mur, posted an exhaustive list of reports from major news sources that showed how all the reports of rape at the super dome were false and a result of media myth making. If those stories were false, what does that tell us about Source A’s acts of heroism and kindness in New Orleans?

http://lucianarchy.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=unitednations&thread=3620&page=208#150278

Excerpt:

“The stories were told by residents trapped inside the Superdome and convention center and were repeated by public officials. Many news organizations carried the witness accounts and official pronouncements and in some cases later repeated the claims as fact, without attribution.

But now, a month after the chaos subsided, police are re-examining the reports and finding that many of them have little or no basis in fact.

They have no official reports of rape and no eyewitnesses to sexual assault.”

“The Los Angeles Times, the New York Times and the Washington Post followed up with similar, well-researched efforts debunking myths and coming to essentially the same conclusion we had: While anarchy indeed reigned in the city, and subhuman conditions in the Dome and the Convention Center shocked the nation’s conscience, many if not most of the alarmist reports of violence were false, or at least could not be verified. Dozens of other newspapers and television outlets joined in, offering news and opinion pieces, many doggedly questioning what they and others had earlier reported.”

In answer to the question, it tells us this story above attributed to Source A (Richard Theilmann) is yet another lie. Furthermore, it can be backed up with facts and evidence – something entirely lacking from the Pickering’s and Theilmann.

http://recordingkatrina.blogspot.com/2005/09/following-was-written-by-richard.html

“The following was written by Richard Theilmann, an independent filmmaker whom I had the pleasure of spending time with while in Houston during the aftermath of Katrina.”

It seems Richard tells different people different stories. Let’s continue:

Excerpts:

“I stared in horror as day after day nothing was being done to help the people trapped in New Orleans. Worse yet, being ex-military, I know that we could move out in 48 hours. Also, I still have contact with people on Active Duty and I was receiving e-mail from old buddies such as Col. Liston, USMC who said they were all standing around waiting for orders and Lt. Col. John Mayers, US Army, 82 Airborne who said that he had 1,500 paratroopers with equipment ready to drop in and restore order but nothing in the way of operational orders had come down from CentCom. [Central Command]. Life was very busy here at home as Rosemary and I were preparing for our huge Bankruptcy Sale on Friday, Sat, Sun and Monday of Sept. 2 – 5.”

Of particular importance here are the terms “ex-military” and “Bankruptcy Sale”. The former for obvious reasons, the latter because it reinforces the former! It also conclusively shows us there is no way whatsoever that Richard could be an active duty member of the military. Off world or on.

“Sundays sermon by Fr. Mead [Matthew], urging us as followers of Christ to heed the words, Feed my Sheep, take care of the Sick. I could here Matthews own frustration as he implored people to “Do Something” ! I seriously made a commitment to find out what I could do. As it turned out, so did a new acquaintance of mine. I received an urgent e-mail asking for support and to volunteer to actively assist in recording the stories of the people and the recovery effort. I jumped into action, replying in the positive and made plans to move out as soon as our sale was over on Monday. We drove down straight through the night, arriving in just 32 hours. My first day consisted of still shots of Drew conducting interviews. This was intense and the people’s stories were compelling.

Some of the stories we heard contained description of beatings and rapes. Such violence is not inevitable. “

Quite a jump from arresting rapists and tending to the raped, to recording stories and hearing about rapes, don’t you think? The rest of the article provides a great insight into the mind of Richard Theilmann, an insight totally at odds with the Source A persona and everything attributed to him.

The above excerpts are further endorsed by the “Saint Mary The Virgin” church in New York City:

http://www.stmvirgin.org/article26999.htm

“Parishioner Richard Theilmann is in Houston for a week to help with those displaced by Katrina”

Things start to look a whole lot differently when they can be backed up by facts and evidence, don’t they?

Failed Health Check

The church website was also the source of the following information pertaining to Richard’s health; Information that would further illustrate why the Source A story is a poorly written piece of fiction.

http://www.stmvirgin.org/article136621.htm (June 2008)

“Richard Theilmann is at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, New Hyde Park, New York, recovering from surgery.”

http://www.stmvirgin.org/article139058.htm (June 2008)

“Richard Theilmann also continues to heal at home following surgery.”

Why is this important? Here’s why:

http://www.heart-valve-surgery.com/heart-surgery-blog/?p=698#comment-7708 (January 2009)

“We can learn from the other countries such as Canada, France and England and apply what works best. My main question is why should health care ONLY be available from your Employer. Forget private coverage, TOO EXPENSIVE. I had a Mirtal Valve repair May 29, 2008 under my wife’s coverage as a dependent because I’m self employed and I have no health Ins. We separated last year but she kept me as a dependent because we knew that I needed the surgery. I’m now divorced and looking for employment since I had to give up my contracting business due to the amount of time that I was away recovering. At 55, needing health ins and a job that provides coverage, this is just WRONG that this country can’t come up with an affordable way to do this.”

Surely, an active duty officer of the United States Navy would not need to be a dependent of their ex-wife just in order to get an operation, they could have the operation as part of their military benefits? Surely, an active duty officer of the United States Navy would not class themselves as being “self-employed” or having to give up a contracting business? Surely, an active duty officer of the United States Navy would not need to look for employment that provides health insurance?

Of course not, Richard Theilmann is not an active duty officer of the United States Navy otherwise he would never have found himself in such a precarious position in the first place.

All of those people who had wondered at Source A’s mysterious absence from May 2008 through to July 2008 now have their answer. He wasn’t undergoing “modifications” in order to meet conformer reptilians, he was having a heart operation and spent the time recovering.

Working Out

We have found evidence that shows that Richard hasn’t worked for the military since at least 2001, but possibly much earlier than that. His Facebook page lists his employer as “Mac & Tel Networks”, very probably the business that went bankrupt in 2005 (see above). The Internet Web Archive has an archive of his website, (http://www.mac-telnet.com) going back to May 2001. The last entry being June 2003. Domain ownership information confirms the domain name as belonging to Richard Theilmann, and was first registered in 1995. His occupation on the MySpace website is listed as “Apple Macintosh Computer Repair”, again corroborating the work information already discovered.

Source A’s School Days

In addition to the business information, Facebook also provides us with his High School information, the school being Northport High School  ’71; information that itself is corroborated by the following document  – The Northport High School Class of 1971 email directory. This information is yet further proof that Richard could not have been in the Navy in 1968, he was still at school and would be for another three years!

Final Verification

With all of this information in hand, I decided to email Ryan’s source in order to get his view on the situation and request a telephone call. The information we already had was more than sufficient to nail this down, but this was, after all, the man who had personally met with Source A on a navy base and indirectly ended up vouching for him.  I called him up a couple of days later and had a very productive conversation. Whilst on the phone, I told him that we had discovered the name of Source A and I wondered whether Source A had identified himself by name to him. He said he had, to which I replied “Richard?” he answered by saying “Yeah Richard, Richard Theilmann”.

As has so often been the case when investigating fantastic stories with anonymous sources and cloak and dagger intrigue, as soon as a chink in the armour appears allowing you to investigate the smallest aspect of it, the whole thing comes crashing down around you. The same thing happened in the Project Serpo case and was repeated with Gordon Novel’s RAM fiasco. One glimpse is all it takes in order to dismantle the lies and deceit that are always protected under a cloak of anonymity. Stories like these are anonymous for a reason: to prevent fact checking.

We have managed to uncover all of this information in a matter of days, and not one single part of the Source A story stands up to even the slightest scrutiny.

Conclusion

The question now remains, who has been hoaxing who? Have the Pickering’s fabricated this entire story from beginning to end, and Richard Theilmann is simply an actor playing out a role? Or are the three of them in on this together? Is this all a huge ploy by those in the exopolitics crowd in order to drive up the believer quotient and ergo increase their revenue streams? Or has this all been a work in progress screenplay by a group of people with an overactive imagination?

Well, when one digs further into the backgrounds of these three people, a strong argument for the screenplay hypothesis starts to emerge. The Pickering describe themselves as screenwriters, but the 1995 title “How Much is Happy” is the only dramatic work found so far.

Interestingly enough, when one looks at Richard Theilmann’s friends on Facebook, there is an  apparent connection with screenwriting amongst a small number of them. We can’t know for sure yet what this is all about, but one thing we do know for sure:

The Source A / UN Meeting Story as told by the Pickering’s and assisted by Source A and other personalities in the exopolitics scene is a total and utter fabrication.

We tried many times to get in touch with Richard, via email, the social networking sites and on the telephone. We wanted to get his reaction to everything we have uncovered, but he was either unwilling or unable to take our calls. Despite the publication of this article, the offer of contact still stands.

The Bad Shepherd


The Bad Shepherd

James Jesus Angleton is widely known as the long-serving Associate Deputy Director of Operations for Counter-Intelligence at the CIA. The 2006 spy movie “The Good Shepherd” was loosely based on his career as the agency’s premier spy catcher, as were several other films and novels, most notably the 2007 three-part miniseries “The Company” starring Michael Keaton.

Nicknamed “Kingfisher”, James Jesus Angleton was forced to resign from the CIA in 1975 after nearly twenty-five years service[1]. He died fourteen years later in 1987, aged 69.

What is not so widely known is that certain authors have used James Jesus Angleton’s name to bolster claims of a huge government cover-up regarding crashed flying saucers and a super secret government cabal known as Majestic-12.

One such writer is Captain Robert “Bob” Collins, co-author of the self-published book Exempt from Disclosure,[2] first released in 2005.  In the book, Collins claims that he has been in regular contact with the Miami grandson of James Jesus Angleton, who provided him with many of his grandfather’s personal notes that were allegedly taken during classified CIA briefings.

“James Angleton Jr., Miami, FL, has been providing us with much needed support over the last few years.  Many of the conversations have centered on his grandfather’s personal notes which number in the thousands of pages according to Jim.[3]

Tim Cooper further reinforced the source of these notes from a 45-minute phone conversation with Angleton Jr. in March 2000.

“He is holding his granddad’s papers, which his father gave him for safekeeping and some Dulles files which Angleton took from CIA headquarters.[4]

The content of these alleged notes range from the sublime to the ridiculous. The first mention of the information contained therein concerns a top-secret government experiment involving teleportation:

“As a further concluding remark to this chapter, both Tim Cooper’s father MSgt Harry B Cooper, now deceased and Jim Angleton’s grandfather (James Jesus Angleton, Section 2, Chapter 1), also deceased in 1987, have both described early government work involving teleportation experiments. One such set of experiments was said to have taken place at Wright-Patterson AFB in early 60s. Needless to say, those early experiments ended up in disaster where solid innate matter was turned inside out as did the animals they used in the experiments. Jim Angleton’s grandfather James Jesus who is mentioned above related the following with Jim reading from his CIA notes. Angleton writes: The first transport blew up a rat. It literally blew up into pieces. A visitor (Alien) helped them tweak the dimensions to send the rate from point “a” to point “b.” But as of 1979, they had not been able to make a rat move. However, in the ’90s, they were successful in moving water from point “a” to point “b.”[5]

The Sublime Albert Einstein

The Sublime

It is interesting that the information above mirrors almost exactly a scene in the 1999 movie, “Galaxy Quest”. In it, a pig-rat thing is transported aboard a spaceship and is turned inside out and exploded before the inexperienced operator ran the transporter properly. Coincidence? We think not, especially when one considers that the rewriting of “real” information (i.e. the script of a movie in this case) in order to fit with the fantasies as displayed in Collins’ book and other, similar venues is par for the course for the scammers. Another notable example is provided in the very next section below.

Angleton Jr. provided the following information to Collins and several others, allegedly taken directly from the personal notes of Albert Einstein in 1952 and formerly in the possession of his late grandfather, but with their actual origins much closer in time.

The Ridiculous

“The qualitative picture is a local field of positive cosmological constants contributing to the local metric field in a small boundary layer around the skin of the craft. The layer was controlled by the EM brainwave of the pilot. The pilot also has a Q* type of field. Dr. Einstein expanded… The fuselage of the craft was more liken to a high temperature super-conductor to which the occupants do not feel the g forces at high accelerations or sharp turns. There is a direct correlation to mind-linkage via headband and hand-panels. There is an exotic field surrounding the vehicle. The hull had super-conducting properties[6]

“We watched the craft displace gravity via propagation by a magnetic wave (3). It resonated at first, ALF (Alien Life Form) our liaison, telepathically explained its basic propulsion stating that N in the equation (not shown) is the number of pairs in the super-conductor (these electron pairs contribute to the anti-gravity effect)…with a slowly changing component and frequency for the EM field.[7]

Bob Collins comes close to recognizing the probable true source for the above quote in the very next paragraph. He writes:

“This scene seems to be depicted in the 1951 movie, ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ (4) where in this case the scientist is Albert Einstein and the alien is ALF[8]“.

As we will see in the next section, Bob Collins himself is convinced the person he has been speaking to since at least February 2001 and probably earlier is the bona-fide grandson of the late James Jesus Angleton. It is little wonder why. Having the apparent endorsement of such a high profile figure -albeit twice removed- does wonders for your credibility and perhaps lessens the need to do a little fact checking.

The information that has been attributed to James Jesus Angleton is both startling and worrying at the same time. Startling because the information itself is fantastical in nature, and worrying because of the apparent disregard of national security in leaving allegedly classified information laying around in a large collection of notes to be published at will by anyone who sees fit. This flies in the face of what we know about the real James Jesus Angleton, spymaster extraordinaire.

With this in mind, we at Reality Uncovered decided to do a little fact checking of our own.

Will the real Angleton family please stand up.

The goal of our investigation couldn’t be simpler; Verify or disprove the existence of the grandson of the late James Jesus Angleton, said to be a living in Florida, Miami. What better way to start than to go straight to the source, i.e. the known family of James Jesus Angleton as documented in his obituary, printed in the New York Times of May 12, 1987[9].

Excerpt:
“Mr. Angleton is survived by his wife, Cicely d’Autremont; a son, James Charles Angleton, of Los Angeles, and two daughters, Guru Sangat Kaur[10], of Great Falls, Va., and Lucy d’Autremont Angleton, of New Mexico. He also leaves a brother, Hugh Angleton of Boise, and two sisters, Carmen Mercedes Angleton of Rome and Delores Guarnieri of Florence, Italy.”

With the above information in hand, Reality Uncovered researcher “Wormwood” conducted a thorough genealogical search and found the contact details for all of the immediate family of James Jesus Angleton listed in his obituary. Reality Uncovered co-administrator “Access Denied” was volunteered to make contact with the family, and a few days later spoke with Lucy Angleton, daughter of James Jesus Angleton, on the telephone.

Lucy confirmed to Access Denied that James Jesus Angleton didn’t have any grandchildren living in Florida, nor did he have any grandchildren by the name of James Angleton Jr., James Jesus Angleton Jr., James Angleton III or any other derivative of the name. Lucy also kindly put Access Denied in touch with another member of the family, a person related to one of her uncle’s, who confirmed the exact same thing.

We now knew for sure that the information attributed to James Jesus Angleton must be bogus, so we set about finding out who the mysterious “grandson” really is.

We already knew from Bob Collins’ statements in Exempt from Disclosure that James Jesus Angleton Jr. was alleged to be a banker working in Miami, Florida. This same information was told to us by Dr. Christopher “Kit” Green via email in response to questions by Ryan Dube of Reality Uncovered, and was also confirmed in an email exchange between the authors of this article and Jack Sarfatti, by way of Jack Sarfatti’s email discussion list.

Extract from Kit Green email of January 20, 2007:

“I have no idea what Collins means by the whole Angleton thing with the emails, address differences, and Broadbent. I had no idea that Steve was in touch with the Grandson. But, if it is the real Grandson, he could probably trust the man…the stories about what he found in his grandfather’s diaries are things I have only heard third hand. I do know:

1. Collins is in touch, or was, with Angleton’s real grandson…the Vice President of the Bank in Florida. The same guy with the stories about what his grandfather and father told him, and the diaries.

2. That guy was also in touch with me, over a year ago, about a serious medical condition in his family. In that discussion he referred to his Grandfather often  (who I knew, but not well)…but never about the UFO and alien stuff. He also was in touch for a while with Hal, and Gordon, and others. What they forwarded to me from him about the Soap Opera (never a part of my discussions with him) was somewhat as tough to believe as some of the most sane of John Lear’s statements. So, for a while at least…Collins was in touch with the right guy.

3. He had a falling-out with Collins over what Collins put in his book:

he was furious. It was not that it was not true, and not that it wasn’t what he had said…but the same as others have had problems with. Bob and sworn secrecy and privacy…and broke the rules. I saw those emails.

At that time, he broke off all contacts with Collins. I have no clue if he is back in touch or not. Or, if in touch, with the same and the real guy…”

Extract from email to Jack Sarfatti’s discussion group by Jack Sarfatti, January 3, 2007:

“For the record I never saw or had in my possession any official military record of Robert Collins. I never saw his DD-214. My information is based on e-mail hearsay from at least one reliable source. Be that as it may. Exempt from Disclosure has some interesting details including the connection to James Jesus Angleton JJA. I can confirm now that indeed it is almost certain that JJA’s grandson JA Jr has been running RMC [Robert M.Collins] in a significant way. JA Jr was and may still be a Sr VP Hemisphere Bank in Miami and is head of Former Intelligence Officer’s Association Chapter in Miami…”

Using this information, it was a simple task to locate the email address and contact details for the James Angleton Jr. person alleged to be the grandson of JJA. His name and the corresponding bank email address was found on the website of the Miami-Dade Chapter of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO/see Appendix A)[11], later renamed to the Ted Shackley Chapter of the AFIO. The email address, James.Angleton@hnbus.com, confirmed the bank was indeed the Hemisphere National Bank[12] as mentioned by Jack Sarfatti in the email above. Hemisphere National changed its name to Republic Federal in early 2007[13], with James Angleton’s email address, James.Angleton@Federalrepublic.com, also changing on the AFIO website to reflect the change. We also discovered another email address used by Angleton, namely Jim_Angleton@msn.com, which is present on his personal biography (see Appendix B) in an application[14] posted by the City of Miami and therefore a public record. Later, Collins confirmed both email accounts as being grandson Angleton Jr.’s.

Back in early 2007, we discovered for ourselves that the James Angleton Jr. who was in contact with Bob Collins was indeed the same James Angleton Jr. who worked at the bank. A highly-charged discussion was taking place on Jack Sarfatti’s email discussion list concerning the distribution of plagiarized notes by Angleton Jr. which wound up in Exempt from Disclosure. I wrote to Angleton using the Hemisphere National Bank email address on February 12, 2007. He replied just a short time later:

“Dear Mr. Broadbent,

Thank you for introducing yourself. This email address is strictly used for business purposes. I am not interested in this topic and yes, some out there use my last name. Please do not forward their gossip. I hope you will understand the true spirit of this final communication for privacy as it is intended. All the best, Jim.”

I replied one more time by asking him if he had a different email address he could use, to which he responded:

“If you are referring to bantering by Dr. Sarfatti and Robert Collins, I have knowledge of their conduct. Other than this, the internet is full of frauds, wanna-be’s and crazies. For this reason is why I really do not reply back and refer it to my security department.  Do you feel my life is in danger?”

Less than a day later, on February 13th, Bob Collins sent this short one line email to the main discussion list:

“Broadbent, JA Jr turned you off politely didn’t he? Please learn…..Rmc”

My email to James Angleton was sent to him only and to no one else. The fact that Collins knew Angleton had “turned me off politely” proved beyond any doubt they were in contact with each other.

To be on the safe side, I emailed Collins on May 30, 2009 and asked him some specific questions related to his Angleton contact:

Stephen Broadbent wrote: [to Collins]

Thanks for being so patient with me.
When you have contacted Angleton in Florida, have you used the
bank email address or only the msn email address? Have you spoken
to him on the telephone at the bank, or only at home? Did you
have any contact with Junior’s father who died in 2004?

Thanks again,
Steve

Collins wrote: [to Broadbent]:
All of that

This email response confirms critical information. The Angleton Jr. that he is in contact with uses both the bank and msn.com email addresses, he has spoken to him both at work and home and furthermore confirms that Junior’s father died in 2004, information that would be essential in uncovering the true family history.

To the casual observer however, it appeared the Florida James Angleton was who he alleged to be. The link to the Association of Former Intelligence Officers is a massive clincher for most people and that he also appears to be a respectable banker only serves to cement that. Upon hearing that James Angleton was actually not who he was alleged to be, Jack Sarfatti found it extremely difficult to believe based on the AFIO link alone:

Fri 01/05/2009 00:53

how do you explain this?
http://www.geocities.com/afiomdc/ci.html

We will come to the AFIO information shortly. A search at the Republic Federal Bank website confirms the man is indeed named James Angleton Jr. and also reveals that he is the Senior Vice President of Real Estate[15]. This of course rules out the possibility of someone by another name simply using the Angleton name for there own purposes. Or so it would appear.

Bob Collins, as we already know, was another, who was utterly convinced based on flimsy evidence, as the email exchange below will illustrate. He had earlier asked me “how could someone with no technical background just make that stuff up?”

Broadbent email to Collins dated April 21, 2009:

I agree with you about the technical background. That is of course assuming he didn’t have help preparing those notes – from someone with a technical background.

The next question may seem strange at first glance, but who was it, who told you, that Angleton was JJA’s grandson?

Collins’ reply dated Tue April 21, 2009 17:07:

Stop making things up. You make no sense, the guy[s] a Banker, there would be no purpose as a Banker to make things up or get a tech person to help him, then that tech person would have to know something about super conductors, this is beginning to sound crazy. As for grandson look it up, it’s all over the Internet….do the research…..Rmc

Having already learned the Angleton family had no such relation in Florida, we went trawling through the paper trail in order to prove it once and for all. I believe the term for this is known as “Doing the research”.

Just who is the Fake Angleton?

In order to trace the Florida Angleton family tree, we needed as many details as possible in order to make the search both accurate and less time consuming. Fortunately for us, we had RU researcher “Wormwood” on our side.

Searches on the internet turned up two obituaries [Appendix C & D] for the father of James Angleton Jr., which ties in with what we already knew: He died in 2004 of a brain tumor, as confirmed by several people and reported in several locations, but most notably by Bob Collins in the email exchange dated April 30, 2009 quoted further above.

The February-March, 2007: “Showdown”, posting of Dan Smith’s Blog briefly mentions the same thing:

“JA1 died in 1987.  JA2 developed a brain tumor in ’01 and died in ’04.”[16]

There was also another reference by Kit Green to Angleton Jr. in another email to Broadbent about Angleton Sr.’s illness:

” I exchanged a couple of emails once, with the grandson…never
met, and never even talked on the phone…but we never
discussed a thing about the Grand-dad. It was all because he needed some
information about progression of brain tumours. He was only
interested in me and me with him for NeuroRadiological
reasons…never a snippet about UFO’s or anything like that.”[17]

Having located the obituaries for Angleton Sr., we now had the dates we needed in order to untangle the mysterious web that had been woven in Florida.

As with any good story it has a beginning. As far as we can determine it started in 1989 with James Angleton Sr.’s claim of being the nephew of James Jesus Angleton in the Miami Herald article ANGLETON‘S OFTEN CONFUSED WITH EX-CIA CHIEF UNCLE [18] (see Appendix E). This was a strange find. We expected to see claims of him being the son of James Jesus Angleton, for Junior to be the grandson or no claims at all, but nephew? Research of public records into the Angletons who live in the Miami area, located the James Angleton Sr. referenced by this article. It also showed him as having a son named James Angleton Jr., thus proving the link between the two. It’s clear the reference in the Miami Herald is to Angleton Sr. due to his age as the article states he was an interpreter during the Korean War and the reference to his involvement as president of the Biscayne Boulevard Chamber of Commerce points directly to Angleton Sr. as per his obit (see Appendix C & D). However, the reference in Exempt from Disclosure states, its Angleton Jr., a Miami grandson, while the article refers to Angleton Sr. as a nephew not a grandson.

In addition to this, genealogy records on Ancestry.com by various families related to the real James Jesus Angleton eg. Mason, Alexander, Snodgrass, etc. and other public records do not support the Junior Angleton’s claim of being the grandson of James Jesus Angleton, nor does it support his father being the son of or even the nephew of James Jesus Angleton.

Early in 2001, Collins too appears to be in a state of confusion, labelling JJA Jr. as the son of JJA.

Sullivan” tricks ? Well, he thought same of your answer…That “guy” happens

Of course, this seems to indicate that Collins was speaking with the Angleton Sr. (son of JJA) not Angleton Jr. and Collins is using the same initials for all three of them. Others also noted this incongruence. Later Collins apparently straightened it out to James Angleton Sr. and James Angleton Jr. as son and grandson of James Jesus Angleton.

As already noted, James Angleton Sr. passed away in 2004 with two obituaries being written. Again, in the obituaries we see references that match Olympia Ross’ clip ANGLETONS OFTEN CONFUSED WITH EX-CIA CHIEF UNCLE. Namely, Angleton Sr. was part of a “governmental intelligence agency for over 20 years”, president of the Biscayne Boulevard Chamber of Commerce and served in the air force during the Korean War.

Now we can deal with Angleton Sr.’s claim of being the nephew of James Jesus Angleton. We already know the James Jesus Angleton family has denied any relationship, but let’s further show how unlikely the relationship of Angleton Sr. being the son of James Jesus Angleton’s brother as stated in the Miami Herald.

James Angleton Sr. (DOB: 1932) was a native of New Jersey according to his obit (see Appendix C). His obit also lists Henry (DOB: abt 1929) and Eddie [Edward] Angelo (DOB: abt 1933) as his brothers. This adds another layer of confusion as the two brothers have a different last name. James was the middle child, thus Eddie couldn’t be from an earlier marriage. They all appear to be members of the Greek Orthodox Church. Certainly, James Angleton Sr. was deeply involved in the Greek Orthodox Church according to the obituaries.

Yet, the real James Jesus Angleton’s family were a Catholic family. James Jesus Angleton’s father, James Hugh Angleton, was born in Illinois. James Jesus Angleton’s mother, Carmen, was born in Mexico. They lived in Italy when the father, James Hugh Angleton, worked for the National Cash Register. The family has no Greek background whatsoever, nor are they in any way Greek Orthodox and there no records showing that James Jesus Angleton’s family ever even lived in New Jersey. The same applies to his brother Hugh Rolla Angleton.  James Hugh Angleton and his wife raised their first two children, sons, in Idaho, and that was also where the third child, Carmen, was born. In 1927, they moved to Dayton, Ohio where their fourth child, Delores, was born. Finally in December 1933, the family moved to Milan, Italy when James Hugh Angleton’s position changed within NCR[20].

Now simple arithmetic comes into play. Not only does the claim by James Angleton Sr. that he is the nephew of James Jesus Angleton not have any support as far as public records and other references show, but a comparison of birth dates reveals an unavoidable fact. Not only did James Hugh and Carmen’s, second child, Hugh Rolla (DOB: June 1920), not have a son named James Angleton, but also Hugh Rolla would have only been eleven (11) years old at the time of Angleton Sr’s birth. Any other siblings would be even younger. Furthermore, James Jesus (DOB: 9 Dec 1917), himself, would have been only fourteen (14) years old when Angleton Sr. was born – not to mention he would have been only thirteen (13) years old when Angleton Sr. was conceived! Any claims by Angleton Sr. that he is the son or nephew of James Jesus Angleton just don’t hold up. As Angleton Sr.’s house of cards falls, so do the claims attributed to his son Angleton Jr.

James Jesus Angleton, James Angleton Sr. and James Angleton Jr.

Spot the odd one out!
From left to right: James Jesus Angleton[21], James Angleton Sr[22]., James Angleton Jr[23].

Still we are not done, during this investigation attempts were made to contact the Angleton Sr. Family in Florida. Unable to get in touch with Penelope (Penny) Kays Angleton, Angleton Sr.’s widow and Angleton Jr.’s mother, we found contact had been made by another researcher with one of the other family members. Unfortunately, the family member balked at explaining why Angleton Sr. had a different last name than his brothers, but did verify that James Angleton Sr. indeed had two brothers named Edward and Henry Angelo. Public records also show that the oldest brother also has an alias of Henry Angelo I and Henry Angelo III (this may be Henry’s son), which is another familiar touch as grandson Angleton has also been known as Angleton III.

With these additional pieces of information, we gained Angleton Sr.’s marriage certificate by looking through the Florida marriage records available on Ancestry.com. For 1954/55 we find the following record:

James Angelo married Penelope Kays in 1955 Dade county, Volume 1527,  Certificate #2599.

We have a match. Penelope Kays is Penny Angleton’s maiden name and Angelo is the same surname as his two brothers, Henry and Eddie. James Angleton Sr. isn’t even an Angleton! Now who was the Angleton Sr.’s father?  Checking New Jersey 1930 census records for an Angelo with only one child at that time named Henry born abt 1929 we find only one record, in Warwick, Orange, New York, with parents named as being Henry and Mary Angelo. Henry Angelo was from Greece.

The final nail was fast approaching. We now know sometime after Angleton Sr.’s marriage and prior to 1973 James Angelo changed his and his family’s name to Angleton. It’s still a mystery as to why, with the best speculation being he wanted to anglicise his name for political and business purposes. He did run as a mayoral candidate under the Angleton name in the 1973 City of Miami Primary as per his obit and confirmed by the Miami-Dade County Elections Department[24].

With all of the bits and pieces falling into place nicely, just one more document was needed in order to prove beyond any doubt that James Angleton Sr., and therefore James Angleton Jr., could not be related to the late James Jesus Angleton. The state of Florida make death certificates available as part of the public records. The required information was sent in along with the purchase order and a week later James Angleton Sr.’s death certificate (link removed per request) arrived and confirmed what we already knew. The surviving spouse’s maiden name is indeed Penelope Kays and Angleton Sr. was born in S. Orange, New Jersey to parents Henry and Mary Angelo.  (Note: the death certificate is available and  can be viewed on request by those wanting to see verification of this for themselves.) It may never be known why James Angelo changed the family name or why he claimed to be the nephew of James Jesus Angleton. The fact of the matter is he did and he was in no way whatsoever related to the late spymaster.

Perhaps an even greater mystery is why Angleton Jr. decided to follow in his father’s footsteps, continuing the false claim of being a relative of James Jesus Angleton. We only know according to Caryn Anscomb[25]:

“The first known contact that JJA’s grandson, JA, Jr., had with a ufologist was with Richard Boylan in 1998.”

We also know it was four to five months after Michael Wolf Kruvant’s death[26] that Collins is in contact with Angleton Jr. on or before February 2001. There is speculation that Boylan’s, ex-NSA informant, Jesse[27], is one and the same as Angleton Jr., and while there are some reasons to suspect this to be the case, no evidence has been firmly established. However, Tim Cooper was also in contact with Angleton Jr. by at least March 26, 2000, whereby, they had a 45-minute chat on the phone about how Mangold’s book irritated his family for years, which establishes Cooper’s involvement with Angleton by at least this date.[28]

Who is James Angleton Jr.? We know he is the V.P. of Real Estate for the Federal Republic Bank and his resume as listed by the City of Miami shows heavy involvement in community activities including the Miami Chapter of Association of Former Intelligence Officers.  Other than the statement about twenty-five years involvement in real estate, little else is known about his career. As with the father, we dug deeper and revealed some startling surprises.

“James Angleton Jr. has been named as a new board member for the Jackson Memorial Foundation’s Jackson Metropolitans. He will help the Jackson Mets raise funds for various high-tech projects and cutting edge treatments at Jackson. Angleton is vice president/senior real estate lender at TotalBank in Miami. He began his banking career in 1980 after graduating from the University of Miami with degrees in finance and political science.”[29]

Angleton Jr. was hired August 6, 2001 from TotalBank to a yet-to-be-created position with the United Teachers of Dade (UTD), which he left sometime in 2004 or earlier amid a huge scandal to head up a golf tournament company[30] and then on to the Hemisphere National Bank[31].

Miami-Dade Union Drops Suit Against Whistleblower. When the United Teachers of Dade (UTD) reached a settlement with former president Pat Tornillo over the repayment of some of the dues he appropriated for his personal use, it received coverage in the Miami Herald. But there hasn’t been a peep about UTD and the American Federation of Teachers dropping their lawsuit against former UTD Chief Financial Officer James Angleton Jr., the man who called in the FBI when he discovered Tornillo’s crimes.

After the FBI raid and the establishment of an AFT administratorship, Angleton was suspended without pay – even though at the time Tornillo was still collecting a paycheck. The union subsequently filed suit against Angleton, claiming it was the victim of Angleton’s “professional negligence” for not ferreting out Tornillo’s misappropriations sooner.

That charge was an obvious frivolity, since Tornillo’s escapades were the subject of numerous reports on local television, and UTD was many months delinquent in paying its state and national dues because of its financial troubles. Angleton has moved on, and is currently the senior vice president of Hemisphere National Bank in Miami.” [32]

Indeed, what were the details in this lawsuit against Angleton? This was a hot news item that ran in the Miami Herald for a couple of years. Needless to say, Angleton Jr.’s and Albaum’s roles seem questionable. Just how can the Chief Financial Officer who handles the books and checks NOT know what’s going on? Albaum even admitted they saw the bills, but paid them anyway without question. What part of fiscal responsibility didn’t Albaum and Angleton Jr. understand? Rebecca Wakefield reached a similar conclusion in her article for the Miami New Times, “Hot for Teachers Share”.

“…Actually, no matter who leads the union, its health requires a vigilant membership that demands transparency. Tornillo got away with so much for so long because others let him. Here are a few highlights from two lawsuits UTD and its parent, the American Federation of Teachers, filed against Tornillo and other former union officials and employees:

One lawsuit, filed last year, charges that Tornillo, former union president Murray Sisselman, and their wives had been “systematically looting” union coffers since at least 1990, making off with more than three million dollars.

James Angleton, Jr. met Tornillo when his bank (TotalBank) loaned the union money to build a headquarters on Biscayne Boulevard. In August 2001, Tornillo offered him a $135,000 gig as the union’s chief financial officer. Boss man had been siphoning union money for years. Why would he suddenly want to create a new position and hire an outsider who would inevitably discover the mess in the books?

The answer, according to the lawsuit, was that Angleton was happy to cover up Tornillo’s malfeasance in order to enrich himself and his friends. He hired as consultants long-time friend David Albaum and Robert Heber, an ex-spy who helped Angleton start up the Miami chapter of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers (even, stupidly, listing the UTD building as a principal place of business). Albaum collected $288,043 for 18 months of advising his buddy. Heber got $48,084. “It is unclear what work Heber performed for UTD or Angleton,” alleges the lawsuit.

Angleton made liberal use of signature stamps for both Tornillo and Johnson, thus getting around the necessary dual approvals for spending union money. He fired Grant Thornton, the accounting firm that had audited the union’s books for years, and hired another firm, Cummings-Grayson, which also proved inept and is also included in the UTD lawsuit.

Angleton also, the lawsuit claims, mismanaged the construction of the union building to the degree that an $11 million project eventually cost $19 million. Angleton and Albaum loaned the sinking union money at mind-blowing rates — $76,000 interest over five months on a loan of $150,000. Another Angleton associate, attorney Richard Krinzman (a former Friends of WLRN board chairman), also loaned UTD money — $100,000, for which he received $10,000 in interest over just three months. Krinzman at the time was representing a developer in its attempt to buy a HUD building for the elderly that UTD owned. He also was the attorney for a company owned by Angleton and his father, a clear conflict of interest. To cover up all this and more, Angleton presented false numbers to the union’s executive board and local banks.

By April 2003 the union’s serious financial problems were becoming known. So Angleton ran to the FBI and tattled on Tornillo. Then he gave the Miami Herald a compelling story about how sickly Murray Sisselman had confessed Tornillo’s crimes, picturesquely, over a meal at the Rascal House. Conveniently, Sisselman was dead and couldn’t confirm this version of events. After spending 18 months looking at its ledgers, the union decided in October to sue Angleton and Albaum.[33]

Further back in the ’80s you will find that Angleton Sr. and Angleton Jr. were involved in real estate, motels and restaurants chains. The whole Angleton/Angelo family deals in real estate and construction. Both Angleton’s were activists for cleaning up Biscayne Boulevard, which was becoming a drug and red-light district.  No doubt in part to protect their investments. Angleton Jr. also has done considerable charity work to his credit, but which also seems to be a requirement as entrance to and movement among the upper echelon of Miami society for political and business contacts.

Let’s play intelligence games!

Just how did the Association of Former Intelligence Officers get into the act? In March 2001, James Angleton Jr. along with Robert A. Heber and Thomas R. Spencer Jr. incorporated (see Appendix G) the “Miami-Dade Chapter of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers” at the Florida Department of State, Division of Corporations. This was after Angleton Jr.’s contact with Tim Cooper, Puthoff and Collins.[34] The Chapter status was active until dissolved September 16, 2005. It was replaced by a more informal organization; the Ted Shackley Miami Chapter of AFIO, which is currently still active.

This was apparently the same year, 2001, that Angleton Sr.’s brain tumor was discovered. Does this incorporation have any link to Angleton Sr.’s claim in his obituary with text given by the family of being part of a “governmental intelligence agency for over 20 years”, even though in the Olympia Ross article that government mission was “to locate, rehabilitate and repaint older buildings”. Then again, maybe it’s Spencer’s long-term desire to be a spook[35] that brought him together with Angleton and Heber to create the Miami-Dade Chapter. Since both Angleton Jr. and Heber were implicated in the UTD scandal it might be of value to take a look at these two other individuals as Angleton Jr. has already been covered. The following biographies were found on the Internet.

“Thomas R. Spencer, Jr.- CNP 1996; life member Association of Former Intelligence Officers 1; senior partner, Spencer & Klein, P.A. 2 ; author, Jury Trials in Commercial Cases, Florida Bar Journal, March 1982, “Florida Small Business Practice,” Florida Bar Journal, 1987, and other journal pieces; member, Dade County and American Bar Associations, Florida Bar Association, Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Federalist Society 3, Federal Bar Association, International Bar Association, Republican Lawyers Association, and the Foreign Trade Association; founder and former chairman, Film Society of Miami, Inc., Miami Film Festival; president, University of Miami Alumni Association; life member, Atlantic Circle, and Martindale­Hubbell Preeminent Lawyers of America.”[36]

Spencer was also one of the primary attorneys for Foutanga Dit Babani Sissoko, a West African multimillionaire philanthropist, who turns out to have fraudulently obtained his money.

“A week before the dinner [with President Clinton], Mr. Sissoko had been arrested in Europe on a United States warrant and charged with trying to smuggle two Vietnam-era military helicopters out of Miami to Africa and offering a $30,000 bribe to a United States Customs agent.”[37] Sissoko, was later convicted of gratuity a reduced felony count among other things, but not before he gave Spencer and the other two defense lawyers a $65,000 Mercedes Benz from stolen money, which Spencer, while shocked, will probably keep it because he paid taxes on it.”[38] [39]

“Thomas R. Spencer Jr., of Spencer & Klein, has been elected to the board of directors of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO) in McLean, VA. The AFIO is the national research and resource organization developing policy for the intelligence community, Congress and the public. Spencer practices in Miami and Washington, DC.”[40]

There is less information on Heber, but enough to wonder what he was being paid for when hired by Angleton Jr. for UTD work.

“Robert A. Heber is former U.S. ARMY Aviator and Vietnam veteran who served as Enlisted, Warrant Officer, and as a Commissioned Officer with the final rank of Major in Military Intelligence. He served in Vietnam as an Aircraft Commander and Air Operations Officer for Headquarters II Field Force and also served as an Intelligence Officer with the Special Operations Group of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). While with the CIA, he had experience in counter-terrorism, counter-narcotics, para-military operations and the collection and dissemination of intelligence.  He holds a TOP SECRET security clearance with the Department of Defense. His civilian career has included positions with the Sikorsky Aircraft and Pratt & Whitney divisions of United Technologies Corporation as well as with the Cessna Aircraft Company.  He holds Commercial pilot ratings for single and multi-engine aircraft as well as helicopters and served as a combat helicopter flight instructor at the U.S. Army Aviation School on his return from Vietnam. Since his retirement from United Technologies in early 1997, he has been a management consultant providing aviation and security consulting services to various individuals and organizations including the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defence.” [41]

Heber had also incorporated DADE AVIATION SERVICES, INC. between 1992 and 1993 before it was dissolved as well as a couple of other organizations, GRYPHON INTERNATIONAL, INC. (2002 and currently active) and GRYPHON GLOBAL SOLUTIONS LLC (2005-2007).

In 2004, Angleton Jr., is listed as president [42] of the Ted Shackley Chapter. Speculatively speaking, he has a political reason for being associated with James Jesus Angleton via his father’s claim of being James Jesus’ nephew as he lists the Ted Shackley Chapter in his biography. It could also be of benefit to Heber in Homeland Security and intelligence work to have an association with the family of the famous CIA spymaster provided he is aware of the claim. This leads one to consider if Spencer and Heber are not only colleagues, but also most likely friends of Angleton Jr. Could they be at least close enough to know Angleton’s two brothers are named Angelo? Did they have knowledge that Angleton Sr. and Junior were passing themselves off as being related to James Jesus Angleton?

If we back up to 2004 again we find another interesting event sponsored by The Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and The Ted Shackley Miami Chapter of AFIO[43] (see Appendix H).  The Chapter scheduled an event with Edgar Mitchell and Hal Puthoff. Puthoff is also a figure in Exempt from Disclosure. It was Puthoff who introduced Collins to the Angleton Jr., who claimed to be James Jesus’ Miami grandson back in 2001.[44] Collins was even aware that grandson Angleton Jr. wanted Puthoff to come to Florida and talk about zero point energy.[45] The event was cancelled due to a hurricane (see Appendix I). However, it’s clear there was an earlier connection with Angleton Jr. and Puthoff. Angleton had also given copies of his alleged Einstein notes to Puthoff, as described in early 2007 at the Reality Uncovered forum:

“JJA (Jesse Angleton Jr.) sent the excerpts of his alleged grandfather’s CIA notes to several people, allegedly four to six individuals starting in 2001. It was revealed to Jack’s thread that Hal Puthoff and Boylan were two of these folks. Bob was obviously a third. The identities of the remaining individuals have not been revealed.[46]

When one considers the subject detail of these notes, you could be forgiven for thinking they were written with a very specific target audience in mind. Why would James Jesus Angleton be in possession of notes describing successful teleportation experiments in the 1980’s is anybody’s guess – considering he left the CIA years earlier. Another fringe technology to receive the Angleton/Einstein notes treatment is magnetic wave (“EM wave”) antigravity propulsion, a subject that crops up repeatedly around the message boards and email lists of the UFOlogy circuit.

As with the actual identities involved in this story, the notes themselves do not stand up to closer scrutiny.

Where have we seen that before?

For anyone who doesn’t know Jack Sarfatti, he is a cosmology physicist with a Physics BA from Cornell and a PhD from the University of California who runs a popular online discussion group that deals with a number of fringe physics and technology subjects. In 2006 during a discussion around the alleged notes that Bob Collins published in Exempt from Disclosure, Jack Sarfatti recognized that many of the physics concepts attributed to the “Einstein quotes” were actually concepts Sarfatti himself publicly wrote about in 1996.

It didn’t take very long for several members of the email list to recognize that the notes quoted in Bob Collins book were actually direct, almost word-for-word copies lifted from Jack Sarfatti’s “QShip”[47] writings from 1998, which can still be viewed online today.

The specific quote identified as clear plagiarism came from page 158 in Collins’ book, and quoted earlier in this report.  Before long, other members of the email list began identifying other sections of the alleged “Angleton Notes” that held text directly copied from Sarfatti’s earlier public writings.

A few examples of clear plagiarism are shown below. Keep in mind that Angleton began releasing these “notes,” allegedly from the journals of his CIA grandfather, around 2001. Jack wrote his quotes in 1996 through 1998:

JJA Jr: “Dr. Einstein expanded …. The fuselage of the craft was more liken to a high temperature superconductor to which the occupants do not feel the g forces at high accelerations or sharp turns. Their is a direct correlation to mindlinkage via headband and handpanels.” [23]

Jack: “I mean his remarks that the fuselage of the craft is a high temperature superconductor, that the occupants do not feel high-g forces in sharp right-angle turns at very high apparent accelerations to the external observer, and that the ship is controlled in a direct mind-link between the pilot and the craft via the headband and the hand-imprint panels.”

JJA Jr: “The qualitative picture is a local field of positive cosmological constants contributing to the local metric field in a small boundary layer around the skin of the craft. The layer was controlled by the EM brainwave of the pilot. The pilot also has a Q* type of field.

Jack: “…the qualitative picture a local field of positive cosmological constant contributing to the local metric field in a small boundary layer around the skin of the space craft. The detailed structure of this boundary layer is somehow controlled by the EM brain-waves of the pilot in addition to the pilot’s Q* field, and other auxiliary EM fields and giant Q’s built into the ship’s architecture.”

It became clear to everyone following the discussion that somewhere along the line, whatever excerpts Angleton Jr. was sending out to Collins and others were clearly *not* from any sort of secret CIA journal, but instead copied from existing public texts that had existed on the Internet for several years.

The response from this episode was tremendous. It revealed a great deal about the inner workings of the sources that supplied allegedly secret government inside information to Bob Collins, and which Collins subsequently published in his book. In an effort to defend himself from claims that *he* had plagiarized, Collins emailed Jack Sarfatti a quote from an early email by James Angleton Jr. from March 9, 2001 which detailed how he described his “grandfather’s” notes. His email to Bob Collins (and others) read as follows.

“From: kenya08@xxxxxx.net

He (grandfather) wrote it down and then added sentences to like introduce what that portion of the equation stood for and put it away. He used index cards that have aluminum threads so you can not photo copy or fax eats toner as the page is all black. I guess the aluminum shines while the light from the copier goes over it. They are written in pencil of a light gray, faint script. He details that the presentation was 4 hours. First hour was articulating the many departments used to breakdown and put together. Second hour was reading the equations and expanding on each. Third hour was lunch with speeches from the AF and Navy. Fourth hour was a demonstration of the equations in testing. At that time they claimed how they were perfecting the wobble of the vehicle. A filmstrip was shown of an actual one of theirs and what we had to date different. At the end of the presentation was a 4 min tape of ALF who died months later. [Alien Life Form, mighty original hey?] So, according to the matter, it worked sort-of and then was perfected as mentioned before in 1973.”

Jack Sarfatti, in a subsequent email, also confirmed that Angleton Jr. began distributing his information in 2001:

“PS My first contact with Jim Angleton Jr was in 2001 when he contacted me. I had no idea of any Angleton involvement in UFOs until then. My Q-Ship paper was early 1998 based on the Corso-Birnes book and other sources that I cited none of which were any secret notes.”

Once the proof was laid out, a number of folks immediately jumped on Bob Collins, ignoring the fact that he was only quoting a source – Angleton Jr. Instead of going after Angleton Jr., the following writers accused Collins himself of plagiarism.

Dr. Christopher “Kit” Green on February 11, 2007:

“Explains a lot about the truth of the word Plagiarism. Jack is owed an apology.”

When further pressed on the issue from a private researcher, Kit responded with a defense of Angleton Jr. – stating that he knows him personally and vouches for him, and accuses Collins of plagiarizing often, as he writes on February 12th:

“The main problem I have with THIS explanation is that: a) I know Angleton, and he seems pretty straight-up…weird story but seems to not have a personality to steal language; Collins has done the same to me as seems he may have done here…often: Plagiarize.”

Dr. Eric Davis: On February 22, 2007 Dr. Eric Davis decides to chime in as well.  Could this be related to the fact that some of the Angleton notes reference teleportation – distributed around the same time Eric Davis released his Air Force teleportation paper?[48]

“All of these alleged claims are nothing but senseless, baseless rumors that have taken on a life of their own.  But it looks like most of you have already figured this out while I was traveling at a conference.  I am just now getting caught up on 600+ e-mails.

Jack needs the freedom to get back to doing physics research because this kind of internet chatter must be totally distracting.  And somehow Jack always ends up being on the receiving end of someone’s insane allegations.”

Gene Loscowski: The following month, Gene Loscowski, – aka Gene Lakes, aka Paul McGovern, aka Nick Weston, aka Rick Doty aka Insert-name-here[49] – a shadowy persona that exists only as an email identity and heavily involved in promoting the 2005 Serpo hoax, attempts to corroborate something Angleton had told Collins.

“On 3/8/07, Sonata <Sonata@donet.com> wrote:

Angleton also mentioned some operations were moved into the Utah mountains. The “metal” is that room temp super-conducting material……Rmc”

Gene Loscowski wrote:

“Heard this same story”

When Bob Collins himself realized that the Angleton/Einstein notes contained extracts from Sarfatti’s text of 1998, he came up with an “explanation” for this very uncomfortable fact:

Dan Smith writes:
“Between 1998 and 2001 the bulk of his fathers notes were stolen from a warehouse.  Some of the remaining notes were water damaged in a hurricane after 2001.  Also, these notes had been reviewed by the FBI, before they were stolen.

After being stolen, JA, Jr., attempted to retrieve the copies that he had already distributed.  Some of these returned copies were then transmitted to Bob Collins and appeared in the 2nd edition of EfD.  Somewhere in that confusion, it appears that some of Jack’s and Mondanese’s writings were collated into the copies of the original notes, and this is what had appeared in Collins’ book.” [50]

The above explanation is rendered absolutely meaningless when one considers the notes are not genuine in the first place as Angleton Jr. isn’t who he claims to be. The sole reason for Sarfatti’s own words being used in writings allegedly from 1952 is quite simple: They were copied, or in other words plagiarized, in order to lend some kind of credence to a bunch of concocted clap-trap.

Earlier, before all of these plagiarism revelations in February 2006 – when RU researchers first suspected that the Florida man calling himself Angleton Jr. was not who he claimed to be – we asked Kit Green if he knew the man and whether anything he had to write was legitimate or not. Kit’s response, posted further above, indicated that Kit not only knows the Florida Angleton, but had personal dealings with him and his family.

In the email, it could be argued that Kit provides a convincing case that the “real” Angleton grandson is a “stand-up” person – the same thing he said to other researchers as quoted above.  This “defense” of Angleton Jr. also reveals the critical importance of his “grandfather’s” notes to the process, motives and agenda of the people who distribute UFO information to the public through people like Bob Collins, Bill Moore, Bruce Maccabee, Jamie Shandera, Standon Friedman, and many, many others.

We wanted to find out who it was that first introduced Bob Collins to Angleton in the first place, so we asked him via email. He responded within a few minutes:

From: Mc [mailto:Mc@donet.com]

Sent: 21 April 2009 15:51

To: Stephen Broadbent

Subject: Re: Information

I think it was Hal Puthoff, but that was in 2001. JA Jr is a banker in Miami. Sarfatti talked to him once and I several times….he doesn’t like to be pestered……Rmc

This particular response forced us to review our emails from a couple of years ago where we interviewed Hal. In the 2007 interview, Hal was asked for his opinion on the plagiarism within the Angleton Notes. He replied:

“That material (I got it from Collins) sure looked plagiarized to me from the git-go.  On this Jack and I have always agreed.  I just don’t know the source of plagiarism.  I pointed this out to Collins right away, so the ball went back into his court.”

He was quick to point out that he received the material directly from Collins, though the information from Collins and others would suggest he received it directly from Angleton. There was also no suggestion that he may have had a hand in introducing Angleton to Collins in the first place.

Email from Bob Collins to a short email list on June 12, 2008:

“Get off it, it’s not what I wish to believe, Angleton Jr. told me that story, I get very tired of being accused. He is the same Angleton that sent those Einstein notes to Hal Puthoff and I. Angleton also mentioned that guard you talk about who snapped to attention when Nixon showed up. Angleton Jr. said Be Be Rebozo , Jack Gleason, Angleton Sr. and Angleton Jr. were there.

Angleton Jr. said his father told him to be quiet and NOT say a word; Jr said the Alien smelled really bad lying in that cylindrical coffin and wore a head band. He said the Alien was brought up to Homstead from a Navy Sub Base in the Caribbean

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Rebozo

I don’t run around making proclamations or claim I know all the answers, but I get accused of that! I state the “facts” as I know them and stick to those “facts.” I don’t use HYPE or try to sensationalize the information, but I sure get attacked more often than not……Rmc”

Regardless of who it was who first introduced Angleton to Collins and irrespective of who Angleton sent the notes to, it was very revealing to see all of the same names involved that we see in all other aspects of our investigation into the long-running scam that has infected certain areas of UFOlogy for over thirty years now.

We did give James Angleton Jr. several chances to clarify his own part in this story. The following is an email sent to him in late April 2009 containing several specific questions:

From: Stephen Broadbent

To: james.angleton@republicfederal.com

Sent: Tuesday, April 21, 2009 8:01 AM

Subject: Request for Clarification

Hello Jim,

You may remember I contacted you in early 2007.

I am in the process of writing an article and would appreciate your cooperation with the following. I have several questions for you and all of them can be answered quickly and without any further ado.

Are you the grandson of  ‘James Jesus Angleton’, nicknamed ‘Kingfisher’, who was the Counter Intelligence (CI) Chief for the CIA, that was forced to retire Christmas Eve 1975 from the CIA? If not do you have any family relationship at all to James Jesus Angleton and if so what is it?

Did you share or in any manner provide Bob Collins or his associates any information from James Jesus Angleton’s personal, handwritten notes, which may have been taken during CIA briefings (classified or not). Do you even have such notes?

Did you share or in any manner provide Bob Collins or his associates any information from your father’s personal, handwritten notes? Alleged to be in the thousands. Do you even have such notes?

Did you relay any of the following information (or similar) to Bob Collins or one of his associates with the understanding you are the grandson or another close relative of James Jesus Angleton?

As a further concluding remark to this chapter, both Tim Cooper’s father MSgt Harry B Cooper, now deceased and Jim Angleton’s grandfather (James Jesus Angleton, Section 2, Chapter 1), also deceased in 1987, have both described early government work involving teleportation experiments. One such set of experiments was said to have taken place at Wright-Patterson AFB in early 60s. Needless to say, those early experiments ended up in disaster where solid innate matter was turned inside out as did the animals they used in the experiments. Jim Angleton’s grandfather JJA who is mentioned above related the following with Jim reading from his CIA notes. Angleton writes: The first transport blew up a rat. It literally blew up into pieces. A visitor (Alien) helped them tweak the dimensions to send the rate from point “a” to point “b.” But as of 1979, they had not been able to make a rat move. However, in the ’90s, they were successful in moving water from point “a” to point “b.” Page 137, Exempt From Disclosure, 2nd Edition, Robert M. Collins, with Richard C Doty and Timothy S Cooper, 2006.

Did you relay the following information (or similar) to Bob Collins or one of his associates with the understanding you are the grandson or another close relative of James Jesus Angleton:

“Below is an extract taken from the hundreds of personal hand written notes taken during classified CIA briefings which belonged to James J Angleton who was fired/retired form the CIA in 1974…Graciously, the grandson James Angleton provided many of the notes to these authors.” Page 157, Exempt From Disclosure, 2nd Edition, Robert M. Collins, with Richard C Doty and Timothy S Cooper, 2006.

In a previous email to me you wrote that you had:
“…knowledge of their conduct. Other than this, the internet is full of frauds, wanna-be’s and crazies… Please do not forward their gossip.”

The quotes I have pasted above are not gossip, but the actual context of a book. Any reply you give to this email can be seen as an opportunity to clarify or rebut such statements.

If you wish to talk to me about this matter, you can contact me on xxxxxxxxxx.

Best Regards,
Stephen Broadbent

Despite opening a dialogue and stating (several times) an intention to call, Angleton Jr. never did take the opportunity to answer those very simple questions in the email above.

Exempt From Facts

The wealth of evidence we have uncovered and documented within this article couldn’t be any clearer. Neither Angleton Jr. nor his deceased father have any kind of family relationship to the late James Jesus Angleton and neither of them have a background in the Intelligence services. Any and all claims of “secret” notes bequeathed to them by their father/grandfather are bogus and have absolutely no basis in reality. The knock on effect of this simple fact is one that reaches far and wide, for example, from p157-p158 Exempt from Disclosure 2nd Ed.:

“It must be emphasized that JJJA [sic] was not a technical person so the notes are sketchy and unclear in many cases. The reason for presenting this extract is to show readers the similarity between what the Los Alamos source as saying and what the “Einstein notes” say:”

As we have already determined, the “Einstein notes” are bogus and if they are being used in order to bolster the claims of a conveniently unnamed Los Alamos source, which the authors themselves disavow as being unverified documents[51], one can safely assume that those claims are also bogus. With such claims forming the basis for ludicrous “Reverse Engineering Programs” and all which that entails, i.e. so called crash retrievals and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”-type exchange programs, one must begin to wonder if the only thing these unnamed sources are good for is dissecting the plots of popular science fiction movies. The similarities between the “Einstein notes” and the claims of the LANL source would also suggest that the same people maybe involved in creating and disseminating the myth in the first place.

One must now ask the question what role Bob Collins has played in all of this. If he truly wanted to verify the information he had been given, it would have been a simple task for him to do exactly as we have done. The information we have uncovered is available both on the Internet and as part of the public record. A quick look at the ages of the three Angleton’s should have been enough to set alarm bells ringing. Sadly, as is the case with many of the other sources quoted in his book, once you start looking a little deeper into their identities and the claims attributed to them, everything simply falls apart at the seams. When pressed with this unavoidable truth, Collins becomes insulting and dismissive of any and all arguments he is presented with. Are those the actions of someone with a desire for reporting the truth or are they the actions of someone who is desperate to continue a pitiful charade on behalf of those behind the fantasy and the lies? In a very simple statement Collins himself has given the answer, “Get off it, it’s not what I wish to believe…”[52]

That group, known by us as “Scammers Inc.” are being subjected to the same level of scrutiny we have afforded to the James Angleton Jr. claims. That particular investigation has uncovered the age-old motive of greed as the driving force behind the creation of the Core Story hoax. They have discovered if you can convince enough investors that you have an extensive background in the highly secretive world of US Intelligence and were privy to the darkest of secrets involving crashed flying saucers and the technology surrounding them, the earning potential reaches high into the stratosphere. Some people clearly have more money than sense…

To Disclose or not to Disclose


“To be or not to be, –that is the question:–Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing end them?”

Good ‘ol Will, he had a quote for everything. Were he alive today and dabbling in the court of the UFOlogist he might have said instead:

“To disclose or not to disclose, –that is the question:– Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the distraction and noise of outrageous deception or to take arms against a sea of subterfuge, and by exposing end them?”

The answer is coming soon to a website near you. You see, there is more than one kind of disclosure 😉

Cheers,
Zep
