CLASSIC BOOKS OF UFOLOGY
Two Golden Age Of Flying Saucer Classics:
Diane - She Came From Venus & Why We Are Here
THE SPACE BROTHERS ANSWER IMPORTANT QUESTIONS FOR THE
VERY FIRST TIME
Here are two complete works in one large size volume, featuring the remarkable stories of two dedicated women who shaped what has become known as, The Golden Age Of Flying Saucers, a period that ran for almost two decades starting in the early 1950s, and mainly centered around those claiming to have established communications with extraterrestrials. Dubbed Contactees, most of these encounters are said to have taken place in the deserts of California and Arizona, and helped fired up the public s fascination with life on other planets, acting as a springboard for our own space program.
Book One: Diane - She Came From Venus:
On the other hand, Dana Howard's contacts seemed to be highly evolved. In fact, the author of the exceedingly hard to find first edition of Diane She Came From Venus speaks of her alien friends with high reverence as if they might be God s angels: All over the world an auspicious new day is dawning. A triumphant spiritual victory is soon to be won. Many earthlings will live to see it emblazoned across the morning skies commingled with the dazzling radiance of the sunrise. With trumpets and fanfare the New Age will be ushered in. When that wonderful day arrives those from ON HIGH will descend earthward. They will help to release all the human family to a new octave in living. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of the trumpet, and they shall gather together. His elect from the four winds. . . (Matt. 24: 31.)
A BEING FROM JUPITER SPEAKS THROUGH THE INSTRUMENTATION OF A BEAUTIFUL, YOUNG, STEWARDESS
Book Two: Why We Are Here:
Gloria Lee learned to fly before she could drive a car. Married to an aeronautical engineer, she became entranced with the subject of UFOs and became actively engaged in psychic research and the study of esoterica penning a book that was done solely through mental telepathy directed to her from extraterrestrials. Gloria Lee, was specifically trained and developed over a period of four years. Lee admits this may seem incredible to some minds, but it must be remember that some of the Space People are over one million years in advance of our evolution have developed faculties many of us are not even aware exist. Unable to attract the attention of government officials to her contacts, Gloria Lee succumbed after a 66 days hunger strike.

There’s a Secret Patriot Act, Senator Says
You think you understand how the Patriot Act allows the government to spy on its citizens. Sen. Ron Wyden says it’s worse than you know.
After a landslide House vote of 250-153, President Obama signed legislation backing a four-year extension on the controversial Patriot Act. Wyden (D-Oregon) says that the government applies a far broader legal interpretation to the Patriot Act — an interpretation that the government has conveniently classified, so it cannot be publicly assessed or challenged. But one prominent Patriot-watcher asserts that the secret interpretation empowers the government to deploy "dragnets" for massive amounts of information on private citizens; the government portrays its data-collection efforts much differently.
“We’re getting to a gap between what the public thinks the law says and what the American government secretly thinks the law says,” Wyden told Danger Room in an interview in his Senate office. “When you’ve got that kind of a gap, you’re going to have a problem on your hands.”
What exactly does Wyden mean by that? As a member of the intelligence committee, he laments that he can’t precisely explain without disclosing classified information. But one component of the Patriot Act in particular gives him immense pause: the so-called “business-records provision,” which empowers the FBI to get businesses, medical offices, banks and other organizations to turn over any “tangible things” it deems relevant to a security investigation.
“It is fair to say that the business-records provision is a part of the Patriot Act that I am extremely interested in reforming,” Wyden says. “I know a fair amount about how it’s interpreted, and I am going to keep pushing, as I have, to get more information about how the Patriot Act is being interpreted declassified. I think the public has a right to public debate about it.”
That’s why Wyden and his colleague Sen. Mark Udall offered an amendment on Tuesday to the Patriot Act reauthorization.
The amendment, first reported by Marcy Wheeler, blasts the administration for “secretly reinterpret[ing] public laws and statutes.” It would compel the Attorney General to “publicly disclose the United States Government’s official interpretation of the USA Patriot Act.” And, intriguingly, it refers to “intelligence-collection authorities” embedded in the Patriot Act that the administration briefed the Senate about in February.
Wyden says he “can’t answer” any specific questions about how the government thinks it can use the Patriot Act. That would risk revealing classified information — something Wyden considers an abuse of government secrecy. He believes the techniques themselves should stay secret, but the rationale for using their legal use under Patriot ought to be disclosed.
“I draw a sharp line between the secret interpretation of the law, which I believe is a growing problem, and protecting operations and methods in the intelligence area, which have to be protected,” he says.
Surveillance under the business-records provisions has recently spiked. The Justice Department’s official disclosure on its use of the Patriot Act, delivered to Congress in April, reported that the government asked the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for approval to collect business records 96 times in 2010 — up from just 21 requests the year before. The court didn’t reject a single request. But it “modified” those requests 43 times, indicating to some Patriot-watchers that a broadening of the provision is underway.
“The FISA Court is a pretty permissive body, so that suggests something novel or particularly aggressive, not just in volume, but in the nature of the request,” says Michelle Richardson, the ACLU’s resident Patriot Act lobbyist. “No one has tipped their hand on this in the slightest. But we’ve come to the conclusion that this is some kind of bulk collection. It wouldn’t be surprising to me if it’s some kind of internet or communication-records dragnet.” (Full disclosure: My fiancée works for the ACLU.)
The FBI deferred comment on any secret interpretation of the Patriot Act to the Justice Department. The Justice Department said it wouldn’t have any comment beyond a bit of March congressional testimony from its top national security official, Todd Hinnen, who presented the type of material collected as far more individualized and specific: “driver’s license records, hotel records, car-rental records, apartment-leasing records, credit card records, and the like.”
But that’s not what Udall sees. He warned in a Tuesday statement about the government’s “unfettered” access to bulk citizen data, like “a cellphone company’s phone records.” In a Senate floor speech on Tuesday, Udall urged Congress to restrict the Patriot Act’s business-records seizures to “terrorism investigations” — something the ostensible counterterrorism measure has never required in its nearly 10-year existence.
Indeed, Hinnen allowed himself an out in his March testimony, saying that the business-record provision “also” enabled “important and highly sensitive intelligence-collection operations” to take place. Wheeler speculates those operations include “using geolocation data from cellphones to collect information on the whereabouts of Americans” — something our sister blog Threat Level has reported on extensively.
It’s worth noting that Wyden is pushing a bill providing greater privacy protections for geolocation info.
For now, Wyden’s considering his options ahead of the Patriot Act vote on Thursday. He wants to compel as much disclosure as he can on the secret interpretation, arguing that a shadow broadening of the Patriot Act sets a dangerous precedent.
“I’m talking about instances where the government is relying on secret interpretations of what the law says without telling the public what those interpretations are,” Wyden says, “and the reliance on secret interpretations of the law is growing.”

Secret Weather Weapons Can Kill Millions, Warns Top Russian Politician
A top Duma political leader caused shock waves in a recent television interview when he warned that Russia could deploy an arsenal of new technology to “destroy any part of the planet” and kill over a hundred million people using secret weather weapons if the United States, the UN or Georgia tried to stop Russia’s entry into the WTO.
Vladimir Zhirinovsky is Vice-Chairman of the Russian State Duma and leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), the first officially sanctioned opposition party after the fall of communism. The LDPR has deep links with the former KGB and Communist Party and has become a significant force in Russian politics, despite Zhirinovsky himself being branded as a militant neo-fascist.
According to a translation provided by a Russian speaker, during the interview Zhirinovsky went off on a bizarre tangent after he was asked how Russia should treat countries like Georgia and the United States who try and block Russia’s entry into the World Trade Organization.
Saying that the American government in Washington DC had “no future” and would “collapse,” Zhirinovsky cited Russia’s supremacy in space and stated that the country had, “Lots of money, resources, and new weapons that no one knows about.”
“With them we will destroy any part of the planet within 15 minutes,” he sensationally warned.
“Not an explosion, not a ray burst, not some kind of laser, not lightning, but a quiet and peaceful weapon,” added Zhirinovsky, warning that “whole continents will be put to sleep forever” and that “120 million will die” if anyone interfered with Russia’s claim on the Kuril Islands, which are the subject of a territorial dispute with Japan.
The female presenter of the news program smirked as he made the comments, but Zhirinovsky’s manner was far from jovial.
Zhirinovsky made reference to the recent tsunami in Japan, suggesting that the “new weapons” to which he refers are related to weather control technology, which has been intensely studied by both the U.S. and Russia since the 1950?s and is commonly used today.
Threatening to annex Georgia completely, Zhirinovsky warned, “And then there will be another tsunami, on the other side of the planet, in the Caucasus. Zhirinovsky’s reference to the Kuril Islands in connection with the devastating tsunami that hit Japan in March is a not so subtle suggestion that Russia had something to do with causing the natural disaster that killed thousands, led to the Fukushima crisis and threatened to derail Japan’s economic recovery.
Zhirinovsky also warned of a coming “third world war” emerging from the current turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa that would lead to the collapse of current global institutions like the EU and the WTO and the rise of a new international order led by Russia.
Moscow has routinely employed the weather control technology of “cloud seeding” for decades to ensure sunny skies when military parades are taking place on national holidays, but turning the weather into a devastating weapon to be used in warfare is a frightening new prospect.
However, as the revelations of weather modification expert Ben Livingston, a former Navy Physicist who briefed President Lyndon B. Johnson on the effectiveness of weather control back in the 1960?s during the Vietnam era, have documented, as far back as the early 1950?s the United States was funneling money into programs aimed at using the weather as a weapon during the cold war. It would be naive to think that the Russians weren’t engaged in similar research.
Moreover, in an April 1997 speech to the University of Georgia, Athens, then US Secretary of Defense William Cohen spoke of the threat of an “eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.”
For many years, suspicions have circulated around the purpose of the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy, the University of Alaska and DARPA. In his underground bestseller Angels Don’t Play This HAARP, author Nick Begich summarizes the evidence that suggests HAARP is involved in weather control for nefarious purposes.
Scientists at NASA have discovered “A close link between electrical disturbances on the edge of our atmosphere and impending quakes on the ground below,” which has led to claims that earthquakes are being artificially induced as a form of modern warfare by HAARP.
The technology to which Zhirinovsky refers is rapidly moving out of the realms of science fiction and into scientific fact as we progress further into the 21st century.
While Zhirinovsky is a controversial character in Russia with an incendiary personality, he is nonetheless a major political player. Although Zhirinovsky has been dismissed as a “clown” and has made many offbeat comments in the past, it would be naive to dismiss him as being on the fringe.
As well as being Vice-Chairman of the Russian State Duma and leader of the LDPR, Zhirinovsky is a member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. The deputy Duma speaker has announced his intention to run in the 2012 Russian presidential elections, where he is expected to finish third in the race.
Zhirinovsky’s comments have been no less controversial in the past. He once advocated dropping nuclear bombs over the Atlantic Ocean to flood Great Britain.
What are we to make of these remarkable comments? Is Zhirinovsky just a crank, or has he truly spilled the beans on Russia’s intention to unleash an arsenal of new weather warfare technology in its bid to dominate the globe?

Cop a Load of Paranormal Tales
Police officers are, by nature, cynical creatures.
They have to be; if they were to believe everything they were told, few people would ever be arrested, let alone charged with an offence.
Yet readers would be stunned if they knew how many police officers have been subjected to paranormal phenomena.
This year alone, I’ve been contacted by no less than 11 constables who have witnessed things beyond their understanding.
Naturally, such experients are often reluctant to be identified, but this does not impact upon the validity of their encounters.
Back in February, one officer contacted me to tell of her own UFO sighting.
She had been driving along a road in Northumberland when she saw a large, saucer-shaped object hovering in the sky approximately 100ft from the ground.
She said it was silver in colour, had what looked like a complicated array of pipes on its undercarriage, and a series of square “portholes” around its circumference.
The officer then heard a high-pitched whining noise and experienced a strange tingling sensation on the tip of her nose and her forehead.
After several seconds, the noise stopped and the object shot into the air out of sight.
One serving detective actually runs a website where sightings of UFOs by police officers are logged: www.prufospolicedatabase.co.uk.
Police officers are also no strangers when it comes to poltergeist encounters.
I have personally interviewed a number of police constables, sergeants and even a superintendent who, during their career, were called to premises where they saw objects flying around and doors opening and shutting without human assistance.
On one occasion, two officers saw a table levitate from the ground to a height of 2ft before slowly lowering to the floor.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” one constable told me. “It was the scariest thing I’ve ever witnessed during my career”.
John Triplow and I are writing a book about a case in Essex which we’ve investigated extensively.
A police officer and her security consultant husband have been subjected to the most bizarre phenomena imaginable.
Spontaneous fires have broken out in their home, threatening messages – uttered by a weird, mechanical voice – have been left on their telephone answering machine, and, on one occasion, the husband was physically beaten up by their invisible assailant inside his car.
Fantasy? Hoax? Well, just consider this: A number of officers who visited the house – several of whom were so disturbed by what they saw that they have categorically refused to return – have agreed to be named and have provided written statements for publication.
Further, we have accumulated a veritable library of audio and video recordings of the entity in action, many of which are absolutely chilling.
The bizarre occurrences have been witnessed not only by the householders, but also by other family members, police officers, arson investigators, journalists, paranormal investigators, friends, priests, ministers and publicans, to name but a few.
What about those sceptics out there who are already rolling their eyes and planning to pour cold water on our claims before they’ve even heard the evidence?
Well, having a complete lack of facts and/or understanding rarely seems to make them hesitate before feverishly reaching for their keyboards.
The truth is that paranormal phenomena are real, hundreds of police officers have experienced them, and you now have a golden opportunity to hear about them yourself.

Scientists Don't Know Why Things Just Disappear
Yeah, yeah, Einstein figured out everything from relativity to atoms to e=mc2. So how come Mr. Genius never bothered to explain the deepest physics mystery of all:
Where does the pen by the phone go?
As an absent-minded-professor type, Albie could not have been unaware of this problem. If he didn't address it, it must be because he, too, could not figure it out. I mean, you take a message. You hang up the phone. You get a snack, the phone rings, you come back and...No pen!
Or, sometimes, no paper! Or if there is a pen, now it doesn't write. How can it possibly be the same pen?
In the interest of science - and matrimony, since it is hard to stay happily married when you suspect your spouse of constantly misplacing the pen and, ridiculously, your pen-pilfering klepto-spouse suspects you - I asked a consortium of physicists and one persnickety professional organizer to explain:
Why does stuff just disappear? And just as mysteriously: Why does some of the stuff, particularly the toothpaste, suddenly reappear, after you have either forgotten all about it or spent many, many, MANY hours hunting for it RIGHT WHERE IT SUDDENLY REAPPEARS!? Explain this!!
''Einstein proposed that mass distorts space-time like a bowling ball distorts the surface of a mattress,'' said Daniel Koon, a professor of physics at St. Lawrence University, thinking he was being helpful. (Think again!)
This bowling ball creates a black hole, ''like a newly formed blob in a lava lamp,'' said Koon. And this blob swallows pens.
Or something. On second thought, maybe I shouldn't have started with the physicists.
But anyway, I did, and another one - Lawrence Brehm at the State University of New York at Potsdam - said that, in fact, black holes are NOT to blame. It's the entropy, stupid!
''There is usually enough random energy around to create disorder'' - i.e., entropy. ''This random energy can be a breeze or a vibration, but often it takes the form of a child, spouse or pet.''
AHA! So then it is my husband (or child or pet) who is always walking off with the pen, right?
Well, not according to Donald Ware. Ware happens to be the director of the International UFO Congress but he does hold a graduate degree in physics, and he says that ''advanced aliens'' hang around, moving objects through ''what some call telekinesis.'' Moreover, they do this to ''expand the awareness of the individual involved.''
In other words, when I cannot find the pen, it is because aliens have moved it in order to make me more aware of the other inhabitants of the universe.
Other inhabitants who have picked up all my husband's bad habits.
Lisa Zaslow, the professional organizer, shakes her head. The problem is not space-time or aliens or entropy, she chides, but that we don't pay enough attention to where we put stuff.
Yeah. Like that really makes sense. Lisa, I pay constant attention to my stuff and, in fact, have just found my phone pen, so there! The only remaining physics mystery is this:
How'd it get into my underwear drawer?

"Lost" Egyptian Pyramids Found by Infra-Red Satellite Images
Seventeen lost pyramids are among the buildings identified in a new satellite survey of Egypt.
More than 1,000 tombs and 3,000 ancient settlements were also revealed by looking at infra-red images which show up underground buildings.
Initial excavations have already confirmed some of the findings, including two suspected pyramids.
The work has been pioneered at the University of Alabama at Birmingham by US Egyptologist Dr Sarah Parcak. She says she was amazed at how much she and her team has found.
"We were very intensely doing this research for over a year. I could see the data as it was emerging, but for me the "Aha!" moment was when I could step back and look at everything that we'd found and I couldn't believe we could locate so many sites all over Egypt.
"To excavate a pyramid is the dream of every archaeologist," she said.
The team analysed images from satellites orbiting 700km above the earth, equipped with cameras so powerful they can pin-point objects less than 1m in diameter on the earth's surface.
Infra-red imaging was used to highlight different materials under the surface.
Ancient Egyptians built their houses and structures out of mud brick, which is much denser than the soil that surrounds it, so the shapes of houses, temples and tombs can be seen.
"It just shows us how easy it is to underestimate both the size and scale of past human settlements," says Dr Parcak.
And she believes there are more antiquities to be discovered:
"These are just the sites [close to] the surface. There are many thousands of additional sites that the Nile has covered over with silt. This is just the beginning of this kind of work."
BBC cameras followed Dr Parcak on her "nervous" journey when she travelled to Egypt to see if excavations could back up what her technology could see under the surface.
In the BBC documentary Egypt's Lost Cities, they visit an area of Saqqara (Sakkara) where the authorities were not initially interested in her findings.
But after being told by Dr Parcak that she had seen two potential pyramids, they made test excavations, and they now believe it is one of the most important archaeological sites in Egypt.
But Dr Parcak said the most exciting moment was visiting the excavations at Tanis.
"They'd excavated a 3,000-year-old house that the satellite imagery had shown and the outline of the structure matched the satellite imagery almost perfectly. That was real validation of the technology."
The Egyptian authorities plan to use the technology to help - among other things - protect the country's antiquities in the future.
During the recent revolution, looters accessed some well-known archaeological sites.
"We can tell from the imagery a tomb was looted from a particular period of time and we can alert Interpol to watch out for antiquities from that time that may be offered for sale."
She also hopes the new technology will help engage young people in science and will be a major help for archaeologists around the world.
"It allows us to be more focused and selective in the work we do. Faced with a massive site, you don't know where to start.
"It's an important tool to focus where we're excavating. It gives us a much bigger perspective on archaeological sites. We have to think bigger and that's what the satellites allow us to do."
"Indiana Jones is old school, we've moved on from Indy. Sorry, Harrison Ford."

Mystery Beast Causing Panic in Vietnam
Hundreds of households in Binh Dong Commune of Binh Son District in Quang Ngai are living in panic after mysterious footprints were seen on the sand and loud roaring sounds heard in the area.
According to Cao Tan Son, police chief of the Binh Dong Commune, these mysterious incidents have been occurring since May 7 at the foot of Dinh Mountain in Son Tra Commune.
However, no one has seen the strange creature that could have caused such large footprints measuring almost 12-15cm. Over 20 dogs have also been killed in the area and now around 280 households of the commune are living in panic.
Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc, a 70-year-old woman was the first to find her dead pet dog on the night of May 7. She said that her dog was found without its head and some body organs.
On the same night, four dogs were also found dead in the same manner, approximately 15-20 kilograms from Ngoc’s neighborhood.
Many households living near the Dinh Mountain said they had heard very loud roaring sounds.
In related news, in the border districts of Si Ma Cai and Muong Khuong in the northwestern province of Lao Cai, people have repeatedly seen strange species of dog like animals.
The strange creatures have bitten about 15 people in Ban Me, Thao Chu Phin, Quang Than San and Si Ma Cai communes in the two districts.
According to local residents, the strange doglike creatures have slender, long bodies, slanting red eyes and their fur coat is marked with white spots, black and white spots or yellow stripes.
They are seen wandering in the villages trying to prey on housedogs or attacking other domestic bred animals like chickens, pigs, goats and horses. They attack any person who tries to drive them away.
On May 11, almost 100 people from the fishing village of Son Tra, located in central Vietnam, joined up to hunt for the mysterious “beast.”
Over 30 forest rangers, border guards, militias and many local people joined the hunt. They were divided into several groups, with sticks and anesthetic guns, to rummage Dinh Mountain and the surrounding area of Son Tra village.
Before the hunt, Quang Ngai province’s chief forest ranger, Nguyen Van Han checked the footprints left by “beast” again. The footprints looked like these of cats but they are 7-8 times bigger.
“These are not the footprints of bears. Bears cannot move as fast as dogs, so it’s impossible that a bear could kill dozens of dogs and eat all of their internal organs. The beast could be a spotted leopard,” he said.
Hunters planed to not beat or kill the beast, but used anesthetic guns to anaesthetize the animal and catch it.
The hunt began at 2 pm. Seven trained dogs were released. They scented the footprints and ran to the Dinh Mountain. The dogs worked for four hours until the darkness came. The hunt must stop. However, some forest rangers were assigned to stay in Son Tra.
Cao Tan Son, head of the commune police, said there has been no further reported attack by the beast during the last 24 hours, and no villagers have mentioned hearing the roar of the animal any longer.
Nguyen Trung Cong, head of the Forset Management Unit of Binh Son district, said the villagers’ information and evidence about the beast were too vague, making it hard for the authorities to determine what it really is.

Nazis Tried to Teach Dogs to Talk and Read
Only a month ago it was revealed that the Nazis had planned to kill allied forces with poisoned sausages if they managed to set foot on German soil.
Now an equally unlikely weapon in Hitler’s armoury has emerged – talking dogs.
The Germans saw canines as being almost as intelligent as humans and tried to train them to ‘speak’, read and spell, a university academic claims. They even conducted experiments in man-to-dog telepathy.
Hitler, a well-known dog lover, hoped the animals would learn to communicate with their SS masters, and supported a special dog school set up to teach them to talk.
Nazi officials recruited so-called educated dogs from all over Germany and trained them to tap out signals using their paws.
Some were said to have been able to imitate the human voice, with one apparently uttering the words ‘Mein Fuhrer’ when asked who Adolf Hitler was. Another was said to have ‘written’ poetry.
The Germans hoped to use the animals for the war effort, such as getting them to work alongside the SS and guard concentration camps.
The experiments are reported in research by academic Dr Jan Bondeson into ‘unique and amazing dogs in history’.
Dr Bondeson, of Cardiff University, visited Berlin where he scoured obscure periodicals to build up an account of the more out-of-this world Nazi ideas. Hitler himself had two German Shepherds called Blondi and Bella. He killed Blondi moments before committing suicide in his bunker in 1945.
The dog school was called the Tier-Sprechschule ASRA and was based near Hanover. Led by headmistress Margarethe Schmitt, it was set up in the 1930s and continued throughout the war years.
Rolf, an Airedale terrier, reportedly ‘spoke’ by tapping his paw against a board, each letter of the alphabet being represented by a certain number of taps. He was said to have speculated about religion, learnt foreign languages, written poetry and asked a visiting noblewoman: ‘Could you wag your tail?’
The patriotic dog even expressed a wish to join the army – because he disliked the French.
A Dachshund named Kurwenal was said to speak using a different number of barks for each letter, and told his biographer he would be voting for Hindenburg.
And a German pointer named Don imitated a human voice to bark: ‘Hungry! Give me cakes.’
Dr Bondeson, whose book Amazing Dogs: A Cabinet Of Canine Curiosities is out now, said: ‘It is absolutely extraordinary stuff.
‘There were some very strange experiments going on in wartime Germany, with regard to dog-human communication.’
Last month, declassified British files showed the Nazis planned to leave poisoned sausages, chocolate and coffee where Allied troops would find them if they invaded Germany.
