ALIEN BASES EXIST ALL AROUND US!


ALIEN STRONGHOLDS ON EARTH

ALIEN BASES EXIST ALL AROUND US

THEIR OCCUPANTS LURK IN THE DARKNESS OF THE SHADOW WORLD

THESE ARE THE STRONGHOLDS OF THE ULTRA-TERRESTRIALS, THE MYSTERIOUS ABODES FROM WHICH THEY TERRORIZE AND TORMENT THEIR HUMAN PREY -- AS WELL AS OFFERING FRIENDSHIP AND ADVICE FROM TIME TO TIME

There is evidence that human-looking ETs may be living right down the road from you, hidden in some secluded base of operations. They have been seen to emerge from a landed craft and then observed in the checkout line of the local supermarket the next day. Should they be "found out" and followed into the parking lot just a few feet away, they are seen to vanish right before the eyes of stunned witnesses.

Some UFO strongholds are believed to be located high in the mountains – such as Mount Shasta, Mount Olympus, at the highest points of the Andes and around the red rocks of Sedona, Arizona.

Other ET bases are located way back in the jungles of Mexico and along the Amazon. Still others require diving and sonar equipment to pinpoint the aliens’ watery world. Additional bases are “hidden” in plain sight. They could be in what seem to be abandoned buildings. Or out-of-the-way castles or mansions that can house a sizable encampment of Ultra-terrestrials. They might be concealed along darkened trails that lead to the swamplands of America, or in the unpopulated areas of Australia’s Outback. One of the most hidden alien bases is believed to be within forty miles of the White House.

For decades we have collected a multitude of reports that have come our way, regulating some to the waste basket because they lack credibility. Others remain in our “grey basket,” because they have yet to be proven or disproven, while the remainder might lead us to some well-deserved discoveries if we manage to enter the star gate that is poised on the dark end of sundown.

It’s believed – and we are seeking concrete proof – that at least some of those researchers who have gone in search of alien “hangouts” have never returned to give accounts of what they came across. Such a case would be that of Raymond Bernard, who entered the jungles of Brazil in search of an alien cavern base. The intrepid explorer might have gotten snatched by the reptilians or Richard Shaver’s “Dero,” who want to keep well secluded from the prying eyes of the human race. Others, more lucky, have returned to share their positive experiences with friends and associates.

You are invited to join our quest for the emerging truth about such potentially catastrophic cosmic matters. Who knows? Perhaps the next alien stronghold to be discovered might be just a few blocks away or down the road, right in your very own neighborhood. So keep your eyes wide open, for it would be a world-changing revelation, one that would not only make the evening news but cause us to rewrite the history of humanity. The Ultra-terrestrials’ footholds on our earthly plane are numerous, and this book offers a unique look into some of these alien fortresses.

- WOW, WHAT IS THAT DEPARTMENT -

Navy Pilots Report Unexplained Flying Objects
By Helene Cooper

The strange objects, one of them like a spinning top moving against the wind, appeared almost daily from the summer of 2014 to March 2015, high in the skies over the East coast. Navy pilots reported to their superiors that the objects had no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes but that they could reach 30,000 feet and hypersonic speeds.

“These things would be out there all day,” said Lieutenant Ryan Graves, an F/A-18 Super Hornet pilot who has been with the Navy for 10 years and who reported his sightings to the Pentagon and Congress. “Keeping an aircraft in the air requires a significant amount of energy. With the speeds we observed, 12 hours in the air is 11 hours longer than we’d expect.”

In late 2014, a Super Hornet pilot had a near collision with one of the objects, and an official mishap report was filed. Some of the incidents were captured on video, including one taken by a plane’s camera in early 2015 that shows an object zooming over the ocean waves as pilots question what they are watching.

“Wow, what is that, man?” one exclaims. “Look at it fly!”

No one in the Defense Department is saying that the objects were extraterrestrial, and experts emphasize that earthly explanations can generally be found for such incidents. Graves and four other Navy pilots, who said in interviews with The New York Times that they saw the objects in 2014 and 2015 in training maneuvers from Virginia to Florida off the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, make no assertions of their provenance. But the objects have gotten the attention of the Navy, which this year sent out new classified guidance for how to report what the military calls unexplained aerial phenomena, or unidentified flying objects.

Joseph Gradisher, a Navy spokesman, said the new guidance was an update of instructions that went out to the fleet in 2015, after the Roosevelt incidents.

“There were a number of different reports,” he said. Some cases could have been commercial drones, he said, but in other cases “we don’t know who’s doing this, we don’t have enough data to track this. So the intent of the message to the fleet is to provide updated guidance on reporting procedures for suspected intrusions into our airspace.”

The sightings were reported to the Pentagon’s shadowy, little-known Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which analyzed the radar data, video footage, and accounts provided by senior officers from the Roosevelt. Luis Elizondo, a military intelligence official who ran the program until he resigned in 2017, called the sightings “a striking series of incidents.”

The program, which began in 2007, was officially shut down in 2012 when the money dried up, according to the Pentagon. But the Navy recently said it investigates military reports of UFOs, and Elizondo and other participants say the program — parts of it remain classified — has continued in other forms. The program has also studied video that shows a whitish oval object described as a giant Tic Tac, about the size of a commercial plane, encountered by two Navy fighter jets off the coast of San Diego in 2004.

Leon Golub, a senior astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, said the possibility of an extraterrestrial cause “is so unlikely that it competes with many other low-probability but more mundane explanations.” He added that “there are so many other possibilities — bugs in the code for the imaging and display systems, atmospheric effects and reflections, neurological overload from multiple inputs during high-speed flight.”

Graves still cannot explain what he saw. In the summer of 2014, he and Lieutenant Danny Accoin, another Super Hornet pilot, were part of a squadron, the VFA-11 “Red Rippers” out of Naval Air Station Oceana, Va., that was training for a deployment to the Persian Gulf.

Graves and Accoin spoke on the record to The Times about the objects. Three other pilots in the squadron also spoke to The Times about the objects but declined to be named.

The pilots began noticing the objects after their 1980s-era radar was upgraded to a more advanced system. As one fighter jet after another got the new radar, pilots began picking up the objects but ignoring what they thought were false radar tracks.

But Graves said the objects persisted, showing up at 30,000 feet, 20,000 feet, even sea level. Then pilots began seeing the objects.

What was strange, the pilots said, was that the video showed objects accelerating to hypersonic speed, making sudden stops and instantaneous turns — something beyond the physical limits of a human crew.

Asked what they thought the objects were, the pilots refused to speculate.

- NORTH CAROLINA'S GHOST LIGHTS DEPARTMENT -

Scientific Team Films Brown Mountains Lights
By Scott Jensen

The Brown Mountain Lights are mysterious lights seen in the North Carolina mountains. They’ve appeared to thousands of people over the past 100 years, yet, like UFOs, the Brown Mountain Lights are anything but predictable.

App State physicist Daniel Caton and his team almost gave up after attempting to film the lights over the past few years.

Earlier this year, their dry spell ended and the lights finally appeared on his camera in vivid fashion.

Here is his video description, with the time stamps of the appearances, and his raw, unedited footage:

"Dusk-to-dawn 30-second images. Cloudy early, then clear with stars rising at angles. WEIRD LIGHTS FROM 0:52 – 1:02 IN. SEEM OUT OF FOCUS SO NEARBY."

As noted above, look for the lights starting on the lower left hand of the video starting around 00:52 into the video.

To get the footage, Daniel Caton and his App State scientific team set up two cameras on a house overlooking the Brown Mountains and wirelessly streamed the footage to their lab back at Appalachian State University. For the past four years, they reviewed the footage every day from the previous night without seeing anything that couldn’t be easily explained (shooting stars, car lights, camera flares, etc).

If something shows up on one camera but not the other, the team assumes they just saw a lens flare or some other electronic anomaly.

The footage above, for the first time, captured the same strange lights on both cameras, at the same exact time.

After the discovery, Caton and his colleagues dissected the images and couldn’t come up with any logical explanation for the light to be there.

Brown Mountain is rather nondescript. It rises 2,600 feet at the edge of the Blue Ridge Escarpment and is a long, flat ridge with few distinguishing marks. Some investigators say that the Brown Mountain Lights were seen by Native American's for thousands of years. However, it wasn't until the 19th century that newspaper reports about the strange lights began to circulate.

In 1913, a scientist from the U.S. Geological Survey visited the mountain, reporting that the lights were the result of train headlights shining over the mountain. The old timers in the region chuckled, noting that the lights had been seen since the times of the covered wagons.

Other scientific explanations included car headlights, brush fires, fires from moonshine stills, and swamp gas. However, a flood in 1916 stopped trains and cars in the region, electrical lights in towns were doused, and the ensuing rains would put out any brush fires. But the Brown Mountain Lights kept on shining through it all.

In 1922, H.C. Martin of the U.S. Geological Survey released an extensive report stating that the lights were the result of mirages rising from the electric lights of settlements in the nearby Catawba River Valley.

More recently, groups have camped in the Gorge and videoed appearances of the lights. Several of these can be viewed online. Modern day theories for the lights abound, from foxfire, which is the light emitted from decaying wood, to UFOs, which some have suggested use the nondescript mountain as a base.

The best place to view them is at Wiseman’s View on Highway 105 near Morganton. Curiosity seekers will line this stretch of road in the early evening hours and are rarely disappointed. By looking to the southeast, the watchers will suddenly see a light appear that is about the size of a basketball, or so it appears. The light will be reddish in color and it will hover in the air for a moment and then disappear. In a few minutes, it will appear again, but in another location and then all through the night, the lights will come and go, appearing and vanishing against the night sky.

As is normal with this kind of thing, almost every person sees the lights in a different way...some see them as white and bobbing; others as pale and stationary; while others see them coming and going quite rapidly.

- THE UNIVERSE WITHIN AWAKENS DEPARTMENT -

Awakening Psychokinesis
By Michael Grosso

Psychokinesis is the the power of our intangible thoughts to produce tangible effects.

It is direct action of mind on matter—on our own bodies, and sometimes, on external bodies.  But that’s magic! you might say.  Correct, as discussed in Dean Radin’s book, Real Magic, an excellent primer on the science of magic.  Consider the greatest magician of all time--God.  We read in the Book of Genesis: “And God said, ‘Let there be light!’ And there was light.”  Now that’s PK!  Psychokinesis--which means mind-moving, mind-transforming.

If I had one phrase to distill what I’ve learned from my research, it would be this: PK is the spark of divine creativity in us all.  For indeed as the poet said we are “made in the image and likeness of God.”  We’re not just carbon-based physical organisms; but minds, a source of consciousness with powers that boggle known science.   

PK, moreover, is not rare.  There is normal PK, evident all day as we direct the movements of our bodies, restraining and shaping them in various ways; there is abnormal PK in the form of ulcers, high blood pressure, and other psychosomatic diseases; and finally supernormal PK—effects like levitation, shapeshifting, bilocation, weather control, materialization, dematerialization, instantaneous healings, placebo, nocebo, stigmata, odor of sanctity, and much more.  There is a mountain of facts that supports the idea that we humans own a spark of supernormal capacity—a spark that can sometimes ignite a fire.

So, with some hesitation, . we might ask: How can we ignite the fire of our potential soul power? Which is what I mean by the technical term psychokinesis.  According to physicist Helmut Schmidt, PK is a goal-oriented process.  Suppose in a test you’re trying to influence the fall of dice, say, to get sevens.  You don’t concentrate on how to make it happen. Instead, you keep your attention on the goal, the end-state, the thing itself—in this case, to roll sevens.  Don’t calculate, worry or strain.   The ‘method’ is to fix attention on the goal; hold it there firmly; visualize what you want to actually happen. The image of the goal becomes the lodestar of your consciousness.

This may be useful in shaping the course of everyday life.  The important thing is having our aims clearly and steadily before our consciousness.   But this is hard to do, especially for us in our hyper-active techno-culture defined by endless distractions.  If you really want to perform a ‘miracle,’ all of you has to be present.    

Often, ironically, the ‘miracles’ in our lives occur when we least expect them.  Sometimes you can aim too hard; like trying too hard to remember something—stop trying, give up, and then it comes back.  Sometimes we have to give up before something we’re aiming for can happen.  Total concentration is required, but being too anxious about success will get in the way. The big idea is that we can shape the course of our journey.  It’s either that or we get blown hither and yon, slaves of chance and fate, fodder for the dark forces.

I have defined PK in such a way as to show it represents a spectrum from normal to abnormal and supernormal.  The supernormal and ‘miraculous’ potentials are rooted in our normal everyday minds.  As human beings we’re capable of doing far more than we might normally suppose.  We find evidence for this all the time.  It would be useful to learn how to activate that potential.  In fact, thanks to the explorer instinct of our species, many ways have been discovered.  The physicist Helmut Schmidt, along with mystics, shamans, and magicians from all traditions provide various hints and rules.  It’s up to us to make use of them.

- CREATION OF THE HUMANOIDS DEPARTMENT -

Climate Change and Increased Alien Interference
By Tobias Wayland

Oxford University newspaper "The Oxford Student" recently discovered a lecture titled "The Environmental Crisis and the Increase of Alien Abduction" given by resident professor Dr. Young-Hai Chi at the 2012 Anmach Conference.

Dr. Chi is an instructor in Korean at Oxford’s Oriental Institute.

The lecture discusses the probability that extraterrestrials are creating hybrids with humans in order to colonize our planet, and that the aliens might be motivated by existential threats to Earth—like climate change.

Dr. Chi speculated during his talk that “perhaps human civilization is coming to an end”, and that “it is not only scientists and theologians, but also non-human species who appear to be greatly concerned about the survivability of the human species”.

He noted how the appearance of aliens in the modern era seems to have coincided with the advent of certain existential threats—such as climate change and nuclear armament—and concluded that “it may be more or less assumed that the hybrid project is a response to this impending demise of human civilisation”, but by combating these threats, “not only can we save ourselves, but also prove aliens wrong in their judgement of our moral capacity”.

In an April 2019 interview with the school newspaper, Dr. Chi admitted to still holding the same beliefs today that he espoused in 2012, noting that humans and aliens likely already coexist in a comprehensive bio-system.

“If they are far, they shouldn’t be concerned about us," he said. "I don’t think they are from far away, they are just next to us, we can’t see them. We can use an analogy of fish which can think and perceive things only in the way they can and humans also perceive only in the way we can, so our perception of the world is limited by our organs.”

This shared bio-system explains the aliens’ increased interest and interference in humanity’s destructive habits, according to Dr. Chi, because they too would be affected by them.

This interference, he explained, has lead to human-alien hybridization for one of three reasons:

    One possibility is that they find our DNA valuable for the preservation of the stock. Secondly, to create species which can survive in the future climate conditions…Thirdly, some abductees report that these hybrids are of a very high intelligence, so are they producing these hybrids as a problem-solver, a future leader?

"Judging from the way the ETs are acting they have a better view of our future, perhaps it is pointing to a pessimistic future," he added, “So, they come not for the sake of us, but for the sake of them, their survival, (but their survival is actually our survival as well) the survival of the entire biosphere. That is where I progressed in developing my theory and I’m still looking for more evidence to support my view.”

Dr. Chi’s interview came just one month after Montana Tech professor of anthropology Dr. Michael P. Masters released a book in which he posits that UFO occupants could be “our own distant descendants.”

UFOs have seen something of an increase in academic circles recently, with Duke University adding a course on the subject to their continuing studies program and Montana Tech professor of anthropology Dr. Michael P. Masters releasing a book in which he posits that UFO occupants could be “our own distant descendants.”

- I LIKE THE RED ONES DEPARTMENT -

Tourists Try To Lure Loch Ness Monster with Candy

Tourists hoping to catch a glimpse of Nessie have been caught throwing Haribo into the loch in an attempt to lure the beast out.

German holidaymakers were caught videoing themselves throwing the sweet treats to the monster and then laughing.

Just like the Loch Ness monster, the reason for the bizzare custom remained a mystery.

However, that was until Scotsman Steve Feltham uncovered the reason.

Steve, who lives on the banks of the loch, became curious as to why German tourists threw the sweets to his neighbour and found out it was all down to a German Haribo commercial.

Revealing all on his social media Steve said:

“Another mystery solved here at Loch Ness

“I’ve been wondering for a while why German tourists keep offering me Haribo sweets and laughing.”

In the ad, a tour guide can be seen offering his troupe a grab at a bowl of Haribo.

Showing off, the tour guide flips one in the air, intending to catch it in his mouth.

Unbeknown to him, Nessie pops out of the water and grabs the treat, leaving the tourists in awe.

The confectioner behind Gold Bears, Starmix and Twin Cherries is known for it's creative ideas.

Haribo once sold DJ-themed sweets, which people thought looked like ecstasy pills.

DJ Brause Saucer - which translates to DJ sherbet - comes in an array of neon colours and flavours.

A cartoon DJ spinning the decks with his eyes popping from the ‘fizz’ adorns the package.

The company was accused of cashing in on drug-culture and were likened candy cigarettes.

- THE PLAYGROUND OF MY MIND DEPARTMENT -

The Phantom Children of Gilford, Ontario

The quiet community of Gilford is sheltered from all that's wrong in the world. Nothing ever seems to happen here.

The only excitement comes from the few amenities in this little village - a general store, your local hairdresser, a marina, and a golf course. Violence, if any, is very minimal and crime is limited misdemeanors that rarely hit the news.

It was this perceived tranquility that led Jody (name changed upon request) to make Gilford her home. She would soon find out that beneath the placid surface of this Lake Simcoe community was an undercurrent of tragedy.

When she arrived about 15 years, she never dreamed that the home she chose on Lake Simcoe might have in fact chosen her. She does now.

In the first year of living in her peaceful house Jody never noticed anything unusual. Then, one warm sunny day while working in her sewing room, Jody found herself distracted by children's laughter in her back yard.

She made her way to the window and there she watched two young kids playing joyfully with each other. She smiled at the youthful antics as she reminisced about her own childhood.

But the smile upon her face faded as she began to notice that something wasn't quite right.

"I suddenly realized they weren't local kids because they were dressed in period clothes, clothes from a hundred years ago," Jody remembers. The little girl wore a dress with a petticoat underneath, a pretty ribbon on her hair, and shoes that weren't from our era. The boy had short pants, with an old-fashioned plaid shirt and suspenders."

Jody stood frozen at the window and just watched the strange sight before her eyes. The children continued to play as if they hadn't a care in the world. Jody didn't dare move, afraid that if she did the children would notice her and disappear.

The one thing that sticks out in her memory is how real the children looked. "They weren't translucent or misty. You couldn't see through them. It was just like two flesh-and-blood kids stepped out of the past to play in my yard."

Their visits became frequent through the years. Jody could never understand why they had chosen her backyard as their personal playground; she herself didn't have any children, so no playing equipment or toys could be found on her yard. And yet it was there that she would always see them.

In recent years the visitations have become less frequent and Jody began to miss them, "I was never scared of the ghosts," she says somewhat wistfully. "It's actually scarier when you don't see them then when you do. You begin to wonder what happened to them, to worry as if they were real children."

Who were these children? What were their names? What tragedy cut their lives short? We'll probably never know.

There are some hints, however.

The clothes Jody describes definitely sound Victorian, corresponding to the late 19th century. This was a period when simple childhood illnesses - influenza, smallpox, and measles - could and would frequently rampage through a household claming the small and weak one after another. It's possible that the young boy and girl were siblings who were tragically struck down by the same illness. The untimely nature of their deaths toed them here, where they continue to plat out their childhoods in a familiar environment.

In light of how close Jody's property is to Lake Simcoe, it's also possible that the waters might have clamed their lives. Certainly that's the fate one 'sensitive' saw for them.

For Jody it didn't matter who they where or were they came from. Having them play in her back yard was something she looked forward to.

Their less frequent visitations could be a sigh that the children are 'growing up', that they have now experienced their full childhood and are ready to cross over to their other life.

We all have to grow up sometime ... even ghosts.

For Jody, the day they leave for good will be a sad time. Her life will feel emptier, her house quieter, and surely she will miss them. But one thing she will always have is the fond memories of the out-of time children that choose her back yard as their playground.

- GIFTS FROM THE GODS DEPARTMENT -

Town Sees "Rain of Fish" Yearly
By Panchali Dey

Sometime in the 1850s or ’60s, the Spanish missionary Father Jose Manuel Subirana visited Yoro, Honduras. After he witnessed how poor and hungry the locals were, he prayed for three days and three nights that God would provide them with food. A dark cloud soon formed in the sky and in answer to his prayers, fish began to rain from the sky and feed the town. This was the first recorded instance of the phenomenon of Lluvia de Pesces or Rain of Fish — at least, that’s how the legend goes.

Fish raining down from the sky? Weird as it may sound, residents of Yoro experience this at least once or twice a year. What’s even more interesting is the fact that Yoro is actually miles away from the ocean.

Reportedly, Lluvia de Peces, takes place in this little town during the months of May and June after a big storm.  After the storm passes, the ground is covered with live fish.

Villagers know to eagerly grab their baskets and head into the streets where sardine-like fish have been littered. Weirder still, those fish have been found to not even be indigenous to Yoro’s local waterways.

The villagers hold that the fish must have come from none other than the sky in a miraculous show of divine intervention. “It’s a miracle,” one local reported. “We see it as a blessing from God.”

Indeed, for many, it is a blessing as it is the only time of year that they are able to afford and eat fish.

Poverty is still prevalent in the region. Families live in small mud-brick homes. For some, whose usual diet consists of corn, beans, or other crops they have grown themselves, this is the only time of year they get to eat fresh seafood. For them, the Rain of Fish is, indeed, a miracle.

In the 1970s, a team of scientists from National Geographic were fortuitously on assignment in Yoro when they experienced the Rain of Fish.

The team didn’t witness the “rainfall” per se, but they were able to observe the fish on the ground following a large storm. From this, they provided what is the most likely explanation for the so-called annual phenomenon.

Curiously, the team realized that all of the washed-up fish were completely blind. The scientists hypothesized, then, that the fish must live in underground rivers or underwater caves where their inexposure to light had rendered them blind. They figured then that the intense rainstorms and subsequent flooding would have forced the subterranean fish above ground.

Another theory to explain this rain of fish posits that waterspouts are responsible.

Waterspouts are funnel-shaped clouds that form over bodies of water and rotate around an axis point like a whirlwind or a tornado. The waterspout sucks condensation into the air and they are powerful enough to lift small animals from the water and then carry them onto the mainland. This theory is thin, though, as waterspouts aren’t known to be able to carry fish long distances and the fact that the fish that flood Yoro’s streets aren’t from their native waterways.

The fish could possibly come from the Atlantic Ocean, more than 100 miles away, which is way too far for a waterspout to have traveled with them in tow.

“Fish rain” or “animal rain,” has been reported in other parts of the world too, including Mexico, China, Thailand, and Australia. Fish and frogs are most common, but there have also been reports of spiders, birds, snakes, mice, and jellyfish.

There are no photographs of the phenomenon taking place and this is because, according to the residents, no one would dare go outside during such serious weather. So while there is no photo evidence of the fish rain as it’s happening, there are photos and videos of the strange, slimy aftermath.

Indeed, considering the lack of witnesses to attest to actually having seen the fish fall from the sky, it seems flooding rivers or underwater caves may be the most logical explanation for why all these little, blind, fish have appeared on the streets of Yoro after heavy rain the last 100 or so years. But this explanation, of course, is far less fun for the residents.

Every year the town, which has a population of about 93,000, has a festival to celebrate the Rain of Fish. The date depends on the first major rainfall. The subsequent activities include a carnival, a parade and a competition amongst the women for the title of Senorita Lluvia de Peces — or, Miss Fish Rain. The winner will ride one of the parade floats dressed as a mermaid.

Many of the locals’ explanation for the Rain of Fish remains close to the story of Father Jose Manuel Subirana in the 19th century.

“It’s a miracle,” said local Lucio Perez, in 2017. “What we say here in Yoro is that these fish are sent by the hand of God.”

Locals are prohibited from selling the catch as the fish are believed to be a blessing of the lord. Instead, the community shares. Those who collect more fish than others redistribute some of their catch to families who didn’t make it in time to the streets and fields.
