Timothy Green Beckley's UFO Spin Doctors
Special offer on Color and Black and White Editions
SPIN, SPIN, SPIN – AS THE SAUCERS TURN SO GO THE ALIENS!
We are at the mercy of the UFO Spin Doctors.
Originally the term “Spin Doctor” refereed to a political press agent or publicist employed to promote a favorable interpretation of events. That is, events which probably did not happen precisely as described, but which could be altered to rise to the occasion. If you can put the right amount of spin on a situation you can make someone, or an entire group, believe almost anything. Even if it never happened that way.
The worst case scenario—a terrible nightmare – can become your best asset if you can rectify the events and place them in a favorable light. Look at the O.J. Simpson trial. One on line source explains further that the word is, “Often associated with newspapers and politicians, to use spin is to manipulate meaning, to twist truth for particular ends--usually with the aim of persuading readers or listeners that things are other than they are. As in idioms such as to put a ‘positive spin on something’—or a ‘negative spin on something’—one line of meaning is concealed, while another—at least intentionally—takes its place.
Spin is language which, for whatever reason, has designs on us...” In the world of UFOlogy there is plenty of spit. No matter how hard core the evidence for a particular case may be, your hard noses skeptic will say that there is a “logical explanation,” that that craft that crashed in the woods was actually just a meteor (even if it shot back up into the sky).
Likewise, a case that is of little merit can be bolstered over and over through talk shows and podcasts, until a story has been cemented in “fact.”
We have put the best spin possible on the events described in the text of this book. The incidents in quest all have great merit, more so in the way they are told.
Furthermore, to justify the “Doctor” in the title we have dug into our files to find a startling report on the Men in Black as described by the late Dr. Berthold E. Schwarz. You are welcome to hop on board and spin around and around with us and our Ultra-Terrestrial friends. And who knows what side of the galaxy we might end up in!Act now to get this amazing book (color or black and white) at our SPECIAL PRICE of $25.00 (Plus $5 Shipping)for the FULL COLOR EDITION

Harvard Professor Says Alien Debris Passed Earth in 2017
By Kevin Shalvey
An extraterrestrial object skimmed through space close to Earth in 2017, wrote a Harvard University astronomer, Avi Loeb, in a book to be published this month.
It was the first sign of intelligent life outside Earth, according to Loeb.
Scientists at a Hawaiian observatory saw "an object soaring through our inner solar system, moving so quickly that it could only have been from another star," according to the marketing summary for the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt book, "Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth."
The object wasn't a natural occurrence, but a bit of space junk ejected by another galaxy, according to Loeb, a professor of science with a doctorate in physics.
"There was only one conceivable explanation: the object was a piece of advanced technology created by a distant alien civilization," according to HMH.
In a review, Publishers Weekly called the book a "contentious manifesto."
But Loeb wasn't alone in his excitement about the object, which was called "1I/2017 U1 'Oumuamua" by Nasa.
"The first confirmed object from another star to visit our solar system, this interstellar interloper appears to be a rocky, cigar-shaped object with a somewhat reddish hue," NASA said in its description of the object.
"For decades we've theorized that such interstellar objects are out there, and now – for the first time – we have direct evidence they exist," said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington, when it was originally discovered.
He added: "This history-making discovery is opening a new window to study formation of solar systems beyond our own."
In the book-jacket blurb, Anne Wojcicki, CEO and cofounder of 23andMe, wrote that Loeb's new book "convinces you that scientific curiosity is key to our future success."
"An exciting and eloquent case that we might have seen a sign of intelligent life near Earth – and that we should search further," she wrote.
Fellow Harvard professor Eric Maskin, a Nobel laureate in Economics, added: "Is the hypothesis right? Who knows. But let's try to find out!"

Was That a Dropped Call From ET?
By Dennis Overbye
Radio astronomers admit they don’t have an explanation yet for a beam of radio waves that apparently came from the direction of the star Proxima Centauri.
“It’s some sort of technological signal. The question is whether it’s Earth technology or technology from somewhere out yonder,” said Sofia Sheikh, a graduate student at Pennsylvania State University leading a team studying the signal and trying to decipher its origin. She is part of Breakthrough Listen, a $100 million effort funded by Yuri Milner, a Russian billionaire investor, to find alien radio waves. The project has now stumbled on its most intriguing pay dirt yet.
Proxima Centauri is an inviting prospect for “out yonder.”
It is the closest known star to the sun, only 4.24 light-years from Earth, part of a triple-star system known as Alpha Centauri. Proxima has at least two planets, one of which is a rocky world only slightly more massive than Earth that occupies the star’s so-called habitable zone, where temperatures should be conducive to water, the stuff of life, on its surface.
The radio signal itself, detected in spring 2019 and reported on earlier in The Guardian, is in many ways the stuff of dreams for alien hunters. It was a narrow-band signal with a frequency of 982.02 MHz as recorded at the Parkes Observatory in Australia. Nature, whether an exploding star or a geomagnetic storm, tends to broadcast on a wide range of frequencies.
“The signal appears to only show up in our data when we’re looking in the direction of Proxima Centauri, which is exciting,” Ms. Sheikh said. “That’s a threshold that’s never been passed by any signal that we’ve seen previously, but there are a lot of caveats.”
The recent excitement began on April 29, 2019, when Breakthrough Listen scientists turned the Parkes radio telescope on Proxima Centauri, to monitor the star for violent flares. It is a small star known as a red dwarf. These stars are prone to such outbursts, which could strip the atmosphere from a planet and render it unlivable.
In all they recorded 26 hours of data. The Parkes radio telescope, however, was equipped with a new receiver capable of resolving narrow-band signals of the type SETI researchers seek. So in fall 2020, the team decided to search the data for such signals, a job that fell to Shane Smith, an undergraduate at Hillsdale College in Michigan and an intern with Breakthrough.
The signal that surprised the team appeared five times on April 29 during a series of 30-minute windows in which the telescope was pointed in the direction of Proxima Centauri. It has not appeared since. It was a pure unmodulated tone, meaning it appeared to carry no message except the fact of its own existence.
The signal also showed a tendency to drift slightly in frequency during the 30-minute intervals, a sign that whatever the signal came from is not on the surface of Earth, but often correlates with a rotating or orbiting object.
But the drift does not match the motions of any known planets in Proxima Centauri. And in fact the signal, if it is real, might be coming from someplace beyond the Alpha Centauri system. Who knows?
The Proxima signal could be destined to pass into legend like the Ohio State Wow! Signal, but in SETI, there is always another day, another star.
It’s been fun, Ms. Sheikh said, even if the Proxima signal ends up being interference.
“This is extremely exciting, no matter what comes out of it.”

-- MONSTER OF THE DEEP DEPARTMENT -
Scots Mom and Daughter Shocked by Loch Ness Monster Sighting
A SCOTS mum and daughter were shocked when their stroll was interrupted by a sighting of the Loch Ness Monster.
Louise Power and mum Jennifer Macrae believe they spotted Nessie while they were out walking along the Great Glen Way above Temple Pier at Drumnadrochit on November 15.
The pair’s claim they saw the iconic river creature was registered as the 13th official sighting of Nessie this year.
The Loch Ness spot came just next to where Louise, 38, has stayed all her life.
The high school clerical assistant told how eagle-eyed mum Jennifer, 60, saw “something strange” in the water while out walking.
She said: “Mum saw it first and said 'look!' and I just said 'be quiet'. I expected to see a seal or something but we spent 20 minutes watching this thing moving slowly along the middle of the loch.
“There was a wake after it and during that time it did not disappear - it just kept moving slowly.
"Then it turned towards Dores with a big wave and just went under the water and disappeared."
She added: "I just couldn't believe it. It was quite big and whitish grey. I couldn't put an exact size on it - other than it was big. We have both lived here all our lives and we have never seen anything like that before.
"I did believe that there was something unexplained in the loch - now I know there is! When it turned away from us the waters were really disturbed and we watched it for another five minutes before it went under.
“At the end of our sighting it did not look as long as it did at the beginning - you could not make out its exact shape.
"I run and walk along that road regularly and I have never seen anything unusual before in all those years. I've been trying to rationalise it in my head since but I'm baffled."
Louise’s nearby neighbour Ross MacAulay - a former Nessie sceptic - saw a similar creature in July this year.
He said: “I started watching it for five minutes. There was no long neck, no head, just the hump bit.
"I would say it was 12ft long and 4ft wide, at its widest. It was light grey and it went under the water then up and then disappeared."
Gary Campbell, keeper of the Official Loch Ness Sightings Register, has accepted the encounter on November 15 as a record.
He said: "This is the 13th accepted sighting this year which in a year of lockdown is incredible.
"Normally there would have been half-a-million visitors to the loch, but the sightings have held up with so many less people about. The mystery is as strong as ever.
"It just shows that whatever the situation Nessie has not gone away and is finishing the end of the year with another unexplained appearance. It all adds to the mystery and is in many ways it is a vintage year for sightings.
"This latest one is another unexplained phenomenon at Loch Ness. We will never have firm evidence without a carcass - which none of us want."

- THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT DEPARTMENT -
My Children See Dead People
By Kate Jackson
Trembling with fear, ten-year-old Fae Jackson darted out of her bedroom and down the stairs to her mum.
She had just seen the wispy image of a person - who had hissed into her ear: "Can you hear me?"
It was the first of hundreds of ghost sightings that would plague the young girl and lead her to believe she may have psychic powers.
Incredibly, Fae's younger brother, Ashley, has now started reporting similar eerie sightings - despite not knowing of Fae's.
Mum Lynn has come to accept her kids have supernatural powers and that, just like the movie The Sixth Sense, her children can "see dead people".
To Lynn, this is anything but a special gift - she sees it as a curse she would love to break.
The 39-year-old, from Waltham Cross, Herts, says: "It feels like someone is bullying my children and I can't do anything about it.
"It would have been easier to deal with if they had an illness. At least I would know where to go for treatment.
"Fae has got used to it and now she enjoys having this ability - but Ashley hates it."
Surveys in the UK show that one in five Brits have seen or felt the presence of a ghost - and that 53 per cent believe in psychic ability. The research coincides with Matt Damon's new film, Hereafter, about a reluctant medium. Fae, now 13, and Ashley, eight, can relate to that.
Stay-at-home mum Lynn says: "The first sign was when Fae started primary school.
"She used to tell me one of her friends was purple or the teacher was red. So one day I told her, 'No darling that boy isn't purple'. She said, 'Mummy I mean the colour around him'."
Now they both believe Fae was recognising auras, the glow said to radiate around a person.
Ghostly sightings started when Fae turned ten, and appeared nearly every day. Once Fae reported her bed being shaken by a frustrated female ghost.
Another time she said she could feel the energy of an old woman against her back while showering. She even says that at times she can feel ghosts playing with her hair.
Lynn says: "How do you deal with something like that? She was terrified. I did start off thinking it might be attention-seeking, but you know your own children. She was shy and not a story teller."
In her skinny jeans and patent Dr Martens, petite Fae today seems at ease with her powers but her huge blue eyes still betray her fear during one of the most terrifying incidents.
She says: "I had walked out of my bedroom and there was a mirror at the other end of the hall. In my reflection I saw a person's head on my shoulder. It was red. I was so scared. But now I understand that it is my grandad and that he is my spirit guide, who is protecting me."
Fae matter-of-factly goes on to relate how she encounters these unexpected visitors.
She says: "It's not like seeing something solid like a chair, it's like a glimpse of the person.
"Mostly I can sense something or feel the energy there and the picture and details come into my head. Like their name can pop into my head or how they died.
"If I close my eyes I see their picture building up. It happens so quickly. I have all this information in a couple of seconds.
"I used to be really scared, I wouldn't like the dark and I wouldn't like looking in the mirror in case I saw something."
The double blow came when Ashley began to see ghosts too.
He refuses to discuss the idea that he may be psychic. Lynn says: "We had been careful to keep everything that was going on with Fae from Ashley. I didn't want him to be frightened. Then, about a year ago, he refused to go into our conservatory and wouldn't go to the toilet alone.
"I asked him what the matter was and he told me, 'There's a head following me around'.
"My blood went cold. How do you tell a seven-year-old that some people can see dead people?"
Lynn's husband, David, 45, is clearly concerned and supportive yet, like Ashley, prefers not to discuss the issue.
But supernatural powers may run in the family. Both David's dad and Lynn's gran believed they saw spirits.
Lynn says: "Fae has tried to tell Ashley it's OK and happens to her but he doesn't believe her.
"She's intrigued by it now but he hates it and is terrified."
Through talking to other mediums, Fae has learned to cope with the sightings but Ashley is very much in denial. Instead, a friend who does distant healing - called Theta Healing - has focused on Ashley, asking that he doesn't see anything frightening. Lynn believes this has reduced the sightings but says he still has what he calls "bad thoughts".
Fae, who has learned to channel her ability into learning Reiki healing, says: "I can close down my chakras - points in the body from the head to the feet.
"You do it by thinking of those points as lightbulbs and you shut them off so you are closed to the spirits. I can also ask them to go away and I can imagine a white light around me to protect myself.
"When it first started I was seeing spirits every day but now it isn't as often."
Fae adds: "I have only told one friend at school, she was fine about it and accepts it.
"But I wouldn't tell anyone else because I think they would tease me. I would be the witch girl."
Lynn and Fae plan to write a book together on their experiences. They have also launched Facebook group Children With Spirit.
Lynn says: "One of my issues is that there's no real help out there for people like us.
"Talking to other psychic children has really helped Fae, so hopefully it can help others too."
