Play it again, Scam

Postby Zep Tepi » Thu Feb 05, 2009 3:47 am

I've posted a new article to the RU Blog, entitled Play it again, Scam.

The article is the latest in our series that will ultimately name the men behind the curtain of Scammers Inc. Not long to go now... ;)

Excerpt:
If the board members of Scammers Inc needed a blueprint for their plan to hoodwink wealthy investors with tales of crashed flying saucers and reverse engineered alien technology, they didn’t have to look very far. Conveniently for them, a blueprint already existed in the form of the Aztec UFO scam that fooled wealthy investor’s way back in the late 40’s and early 50’s.


Cheers,
Steve

NICE article Steve!

One particular aspect of the Aztec hoax I find interesting is this…

[from Dave Thomas’ page]

http://www.nmsr.org/aztec.htm

On May 31st and June 1st, 1998, on the nationally-syndicated radio programs Dreamland and The Art Bell Show, noted UFO researcher Linda Moulton Howe described a secret FBI memo from March 22nd, 1950, written to J. Edgar Hoover himself. Memo author Guy Hottel, of SAC, described an investigator's report of a flying saucer recovery in New Mexico, with mention of three saucers, three-foot tall bodies, metallic cloth, and bandaged alien bodies. The crash was supposedly due to interference from high-powered radar. But all of these elements (saucers, aliens, cloth and tape, radar site) have been firmly traced to the yarns spun by our two swindlers! William Moore even traced how the story got from Silas Newton to J. Edgar Hoover: Newton told George Koehler (employed at radio station KMYR in Denver), who told Morley Davies, who told Ford dealers Murphy and van Horn, who told auto dealer Fick, who told the editor of the Kansas City Wyandotte Echo. By that time, Koehler had become "Coulter," just like a game of "gossip" (or a game of "pi")! This article was picked up in the news, where it caught the interest of the OSI. The OSI agent passed the story on to Guy Hottel of the FBI, and he gave the 8th-hand story to Hoover.

The original memo, written after Frank Scully published two columns in Variety magazine in 1949 about crashed flying saucers and aliens but several months before he published his book Behind the Flying Saucers in September of 1950, can be viewed at the FBI web site here…

Or here for those not comfortable with surfing the FBI’s web site…

Isn’t it ironic that William Moore (who’s Roswell “research” with Stanton Friedman was used to fabricate the MJ-12 hoax as early as 1980 with the help of Richard Doty) debunked the only verifiably “real” official document in existence that I’m aware of that actually mentions crashed flying saucers and aliens?

Ironic, or all part of the plan.
From Moore's point of view, the Aztec hoax had to be debunked in order not to take the focus away from his "pet" Roswell project.

We also have some evidence that shows it was very likely our Scammers Inc group that reignited interest in the Aztec hoax in the first place, only to drop it once the MJ-12/Roswell stories began taking off.

Oh what a tangled web they weave!

Cheers,
Steve

As I understand the principles Vallee laid out in "Messengers of Deception," creating an attractive belief system attracts and prepares a group of believers - it causes people who accept the initial story to let their guard down and become more "willing" to receive illogical or questionable material. Once a group becomes entrenched into that story or belief system, if you remove or deconstruct it - there's a vacuum there. People are more likely to seek out an alternative in a panic.

Be there, ready with an alternative that satisfies those "believer"-needs...and you've got an open, perceptive, and malleable group who are now more willing to buy into your story than they were before.

A good example - place the "alien story" in front of someone who has never heard of Scientology. They'll laugh and walk away. Put someone through many months of indoctrination and "auditing," and then place that illogical tale of science fiction in front of them, and it becomes gospel.
