By Tim Swartz, Tim Beckley,  Sean Casteel, Prof. Stephen Fenley,
Scott Corrales, Joseph Foster, Harry Drew, and others


Over 20 of the world's leading UFOlogists establish  that humans have done battle with aliens over and over again, shooting at them, molesting them, hitting them, running them over,  unleashing dogs upon them, and injuring -- and even killing them -- though any means possible, as humans try to combat their fear of the unknown.

In many instances the aliens have fought back. They have sought revenge, and more often than not, gotten it.   Here are over a hundred reports of the strangest close encounters with humanoids who use force to defend themselves -- such as the case of the NY hunter whose rifle was ripped from his hands, the shotgun barrel twisted, and than handed back to him. There is also the crash landing of a UFO in Kingman, AZ which involved 8 UFOs positioning themselves in the sky in combat position, apparently returning to find any  survivors of their doomed craft, and to protect themselves in doing so.  


The second part of the book's "mission," is to disprove the concept held by  many that African Americans are not prone to have UFO experiences or to hold a belief or interest in the subject. One contributor, Prof. Stephen Finley of the University of Louisiana, explains how UFOs are part of the overall "Black experience" of many African Americans. Most of his fans do not realize that Muhammad Ali had over 21 UFO sightings. A friend of researcher Tim Beckley, the late Champ explains why he was so taken up with the subject, being a part of his spiritual beliefs.

Rubio Urges U.S. to Take UFOs Seriously
By Adam Barnes

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) argued in an interview Sunday the U.S. should take UFO’s “seriously,” saying “anything that enters an airspace that is not supposed to is a threat.”

The government is expected to release a report on UFO sightings in June, and Rubio wants a declassified copy submitted to congress, The New York Post reported. Yet Rubio told CBS’s 60 Minutes host Bill Whitaker Congressional members’ views of UFO’s vary. The Florida Republican said some of his colleagues are “very interested in this topic and some kinda, you know, giggle when you bring it up.”

“But I don’t think we can allow the stigma to keep us from having an answer to a very fundamental question,” Rubio added.

The former presidential candidate added he believes that a mechanism should be set up by which UFO data is “cataloged and constantly analyzed, until we get some answers.”

“Maybe it has a very simple answer. Maybe it doesn’t,” Rubio said.

Former Navy Lt. Ryan Graves said on the CBS show he witnessed “unidentified aerial phenomena” (UAP’s) in restricted airspace “every day for a couple years.” Graves, who spotted the unidentified aircraft with members of his squadron said this could represent a security threat.

“I am worried, frankly. … if these were tactical jets from another country that were hanging out up there, it would be a massive issue,” Graves said.

“But because it looks slightly different, we’re not willing to actually look at the problem in the face,” Graves added. “We’re happy to just ignore the fact that these are out there, watching us every day.”

Luis Elizondo, a Former Pentagon official who ran the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program told Whitaker some of the sightings can be easily explained while others are “problematic.”

"Is it some sort of new type of cruise missile technology that China has developed,” Elizondo said. “Is it some sort of high-altitude balloon that's conducting reconnaissance?"

“Ultimately when you have exhausted all those what ifs and you’re still left with the fact that this is in our airspace and it’s real, that’s when it becomes compelling, and that’s when it becomes problematic,” he said.

Video from USS Omaha Shows UAP Vanishing into Ocean
By George Knapp, Matt Adams, Duncan Phenix

Newly released video taken on board the USS Omaha, a littoral combat ship, shows what has been described as a transmedium vehicle (that is, a vehicle capable of traveling through both air and water) moving, hovering, and disappearing into the Pacific Ocean.

The new video has been published by investigative filmmaker Jeremy Corbell. The video is from the same incident Mystery Wire documented in April. Previously, two freeze frame images from the video were made public. A Pentagon spokesperson confirmed last month that one of the freeze-frame images was recorded by US Navy personnel.

The video was recorded inside the Omaha’s command center just before 11 p.m. on July 15, 2019. The image on the screen shows a six-foot in diameter sphere that traveled alongside the Omaha for about an hour.

It was pitch black outside, so the image was obtained with a FLIR camera that senses and shows heat signatures.

Personnel in the command center made multiple recordings of what was on the screen. At precisely 11 p.m., the unidentified sphere seemingly vanished into the ocean. The time and date indicated on the video is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

During July 2019, several U.S. warships based in San Diego were repeatedly buzzed by unknown aerial intruders. Stories of strange encounters bubbled to the surface last summer, initially focused on the USS Kidd, a Navy destroyer.

In March, more documentation surfaced in the form of ships logs, which confirmed that unidentified objects were seen by crews aboard multiple warships in restricted waters off the coast of southern California. One of those ships was the USS Omaha.

The objects were described as “drones”, also as “UAVs,” generic terms for what are otherwise considered unidentified objects.

Corbell says as many as 14 of the spheres surrounded the Omaha and were detected on sensors, on and off, during three perplexing days at sea.

The Omaha’s advanced sensors could not maintain a lock on the spheres as they approached the ship or when they departed. “They never found where these things came from or went to,” Corbell told Mystery Wire. “So they don’t know where they are launching from or going to. I mean, maybe it’s the water because that’s what we are seeing one do.”

Voices of Navy personnel on the video confirm the Omaha launched an immediate search, using all of its high tech resources. But when the sphere vanished from the screen, it also vanished from the Omaha’s radar and sonar. No wreckage was found on the surface.

The UAP Task Force briefing is a classified document, but the images contained in the briefing are not classified. That distinction was made so the Task Force could use the images to help educate other military and intelligence officials about the UFO mystery.

This new video and the earlier images were part of a series of bizarre encounters reported by the U.S. Navy during the past two years.

On March 2019 a U.S. Navy F/A-18 jet encounter of three stationary drones of unknown origin, reported earlier by Mystery Wire, off the coast of Virginia above the Atlantic Ocean.

'Freaky' Ogopogo Sighting?
bY Chelsea Powrie

"It was so freaky."

A Summerland woman says it might sound crazy, but she is convinced she saw the legendary Ogopogo this week in Okanagan Lake.

Andrea* was on a hike in the hills above Crescent Beach in Summerland Monday morning when something caught her eye on the calm, deserted lake.

"I was overlooking the lake and I saw something thrashing or something in the water, and I thought 'What the heck?'" Andrea told Castanet.

"It was huge and it was black and it was moving pretty fast, and it had a wake behind it."

Ogopogo is a fabled aquatic creature said to inhabit the depths of Okanagan Lake, dating back to First Nations folklore. While numerous sightings have been reported, no definitive proof of its existence has ever been found.

Andrea thinks she saw it firsthand.

"Whatever I saw, and it was definitely aquatic, whether it was a sturgeon or not, it was huge. It was really big," Andrea said.

"It moved so fast, I knew it wasn't a moose or anything. It submerged itself, then re-emerged, pulling a wake behind it ... it then submerged itself again and disappeared."

She estimates she was about 300 feet above the lake when she saw the animal. She pulled out her phone to grab a photo after staring in disbelief for a minute.

"It was a really beautiful calm day. There was nothing on the way, nobody, no fishing boats. I saw birds dive-bomb this thing as well," she said. "There was something weird going on."

While Andrea can't be certain exactly what she saw, there is one thing for sure: "I definitely will not be jumping off a boat in the middle of the lake this summer, there’s no freakin’ way!"

*Andrea asked Castanet not to share her full name

By Brian Allan

In this remarkable book the author and editor of Phenomena Magazine, Brian Allan, introduces the idea that Heresy (the word is taken from the Greek language and only means ‘one who chooses’), not only decided the frequently bloody fate of free-thinkers in the Dark Ages, but still affects us in many surprising ways to this very day. Drawing on hard-to-find sources, the author shows that at one time the charge of heresy was used as a brutal and particularly heavy-handed form of control by various religious groups.

Heretics like Aleister Crowley, Anton Szandor laVey, Kenneth Grant, Charles Manson and others are discussed in these pages and show that heresy was and is part and parcel of how magic and Satanism began and perhaps even lies at the origins of the human race. Discover how the intelligence services, through people like the enigmatic Col. John Alexander, have successfully weaponised former heretical beliefs such as magic, remote viewing and mind control and used them to kill. Even today among scientists, particularly in quantum physics, the charge of heresy is a very real threat and can bring promising careers to an abrupt halt, because even although the perceived heresy is correct, it dares to challenge the status-quo.

This reasonably priced book can and will change how you see the world and it is available from any good bookseller, from ‘O’ Books or through Amazon.


'Mystery Creature' Remains Found on Floor of Mediterranean
By Tim Binnall

A curious piece of footage from an underwater exploratory vehicle shows the massive remains of a mysterious sea creature that has yet to be identified.

Paranormal researcher Deborah Hatswell reportedly received the video from an unnamed oil and gas industry worker back in 2017 and held on to the material until late last month when she posted it to YouTube.

According to her source, the strange discovery occurred as a remote-operated vehicle was conducting a survey of the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea at a depth of approximately 2,700 feet.

During its examination of the area, the submarine stumbled upon the puzzling remains which appear to measure around 98 feet long and consists largely of a very lengthy set of vertebrate.

In the video, the operator of the vessel uses a remote-controlled claw to reach out a grasp a piece of the skeleton, but the segment disintegrates into dust as soon as the slightest bit of pressure is placed upon it.

While one might suspect that the remains are simply those of a whale, Hartswell dismissed that particular theory.

"This video was taken by professionals who work underwater in oceans all across the globe," she said, "they whale bones and come across them from time to time."

To that end, she noted that the spine of a whale sports three blades which are spaced 120 degrees apart, which is incongruous with the skeleton in the video. Adding another layer of mystery to the creature, Hartswell indicated that "the dimensions of the skeleton on the video does not fit with the usual size for any sea life in the area."

For his part, Hartswell's source for the video said that "the bones could be very ancient" and observed that they "look more like they belong to a serpent of some kind."

Attempts by the paranormal researcher to connect the creature's remains to various types of marine life have so far fallen short, giving rise to speculation that perhaps the skeleton is that of something fantastic such as a heretofore undiscovered sea serpent akin to the legendary leviathan. More skeptical-minded individuals, however, have posited that the remains were those of a giant hammerhead shark.

The Thing In City Park New Orleans

In the early morning hours of Sunday, February 7, 2010, a tractor driver who had worked the Caesar parade route in Metairie was heading home to his apartment in the Lake Terrace section of New Orleans when he decided to take a detour through City Park.

While driving down Harrison Avenue, approximately half way between the renovated New Orleans Police Department Mounted Unit horse stables and Scout Island, in the vicinity of the infamous Mona Lisa Drive, the man was startled to see a dark form lurch out of the shadows and approach the road.

The witness slowed his vehicle for a better look.  The dark form ran along the treeline for several minutes, moving in and out of the misty and shadows under the oaks.  The driver now came to a complete stop and observed what he described as a “troll” or a “gill man” dart across the Harrison Avenue turnaround, making its way toward Scout Island and the overgrowth of the abandoned City Park East Golf Course.

According to the witness, the creature had dark or black skin covered in masses of “skin or fins” that looked like algae growing all over its body.  It seemed to have gills or matted hair that looked like gills on its face and head; two yellow eyes leered out from under a prominent forehead.  Apparently aware of the man’s presence, once it had crossed the road, it stopped and looked back at the man who said it then opened its mouth in a growl, revealing a set of massive fangs and a lolling tongue that looked, according to the man, “too big for its mouth.”  It lifted up a clawed hand as if to wave the man off, the driver clearly observed long claws at the fingertips in the ambient light, and then it turned, lurching off into the shadows of Scout Island.

The witness did not report his strange experience to the police because he assumed they would not believe him and since the “gill man,” “troll,” or whatever it was had not hurt him, he didn’t feel it was necessary to bring unwelcome scrutiny upon himself.  When he joined a group of fellow tractor drivers for parade routes early the next morning, he told a friend what had happened.  His friend put him in touch with Haunted America Tours.

Here at Haunted America Tours the staff has long been aware of legends regarding ghosts and creatures lurking in the placed environment of the New Orleans City Park.  The “urban legend” surrounding the Park’s Mona Lisa Drive is one example.

According to some reports there is an older legend, popular among the Allipoosa Indians who lived along nearby Bayou St. John in the colonial days of New Orleans, concerning a foul, ghoul-like creature inhabiting the woody tracts and marshy areas along the bayou shore.  Descriptions of the creature by the Allipoosa, and accounts from slaves who worked on the Allard Plantation, which comprised all the acres that later became City Park, match the account provided by the tractor driver this past weekend.

Haunted America Tours spoke to a Mid-City resident who lives in the City Park Avenue area and who claims to be a descendent of the Allipoosa tribe, and he confirmed that recently there have been numerous strange occurrences in City Park.

The resident, who asked not to be identified, suggested that the recent sightings might be connected to the numerous film projects that have used City Park and its surrounding areas as locations and backdrops for shooting.  Some of these projects, he said, have supernatural or paranormal storylines, and it is his opinion that this activity has “stirred up” the spirits of the land – from the ghosts of Allard plantation slaves and long-dead Indians, to more modern phantoms.  City Park, he said, has many, many guardians.

A member of the Haunted America Tours staff discussed an interesting footnote to this story: On a recent visit to the Popp’s Fountain area in City Park, she noticed that some of the heavy iron bars in the security fence now surrounding the fountain had been bent and broken, as if by tremendous force.  The interesting thing, other than the fact that the black, wrought iron would be impossible to break without the aid of machinery or welding equipment, is that the breaks appeared to have occurred from the inside out.

Child Vampire Hunters Sparked Comic Crackdown

When Pc Alex Deeprose was called to Glasgow's sprawling Southern Necropolis on the evening of 23 September 1954, he expected to be dealing with a simple case of vandalism.

But the bizarre sight that awaited him was to make headlines around the world and cause a moral panic that led to the introduction of strict new censorship laws in the UK.

Hundreds of children aged from four to 14, some of them armed with knives and sharpened sticks, were patrolling inside the historic graveyard. They were, they told the bemused constable, hunting a 7ft tall vampire with iron teeth who had already kidnapped and eaten two local boys.

Fear of the so-called Gorbals Vampire had spread to many of their parents, who begged Pc Deeprose for assurances there was no truth to the rumours. Newspapers at the time reported that the headmaster of a nearby primary school told everyone present that the tale was ridiculous, and police were finally able to disperse the crowd. But the armed mob of child vampire hunters was to return immediately after sunset the following night, and the night after that.

Urban Myth

Ronnie Sanderson, who was an eight-year-old schoolboy in the Gorbals area of the city when the vampire scare was at its height, described how Chinese whispers in the schoolyard escalated into full-blown panic.

He recalled: "It all started in the playground - the word was there was a vampire and everyone was going to head out there after school.

"At three o'clock the school emptied and everyone made a beeline for it. We sat there for ages on the wall waiting and waiting. I wouldn't go in because it was a bit scary for me.

"I think somebody saw someone wandering about and the cry went up: 'There's the vampire!'

"That was it - that was the word to get off that wall quick and get away from it.

"I just remember scampering home to my mother: 'What's the matter with you?' 'I've seen a vampire!' and I got a clout round the ear for my trouble. I didn't really know what a vampire was."

There were no records of any missing children in Glasgow at the time, and media reports of the incident began to search for the origins of the urban myth that had gripped the city.

The blame was quickly laid at the door of American comic books with chilling titles such as Tales From The Crypt and The Vault of Horror, whose graphic images of terrifying monsters were becoming increasingly popular among Scottish youngsters.

Corrupt Comics

These comics, so the theory went, were corrupting the imaginations of children and inflaming them with fear of the unknown. A few dissenting academics pointed out there was no mention of a creature matching the description of the Gorbals Vampire in any of these comics.

There was, however, a monster with iron teeth in the Bible (Daniel 7.7) and in a poem taught in local schools. But their voices were drowned out in the media and political frenzy that was by now demanding action to be taken to prevent even more young minds from being "polluted" by the "terrifying and corrupt" comic books.

The government responded to the clamour by introducing the Children and Young Persons (Harmful Publications) Act 1955 which, for the first time, specifically banned the sale of magazines and comics portraying "incidents of a repulsive or horrible nature" to minors.

Another of those who had gathered at the graveyard as a child, Tam Smith, said the Necropolis provided the perfect stage for a vampire story to take root, with the noise and light from the nearby ironworks casting spooky shadows across the graves in which some 250,000 Glaswegians had been laid to rest.

Mr Smith said it had been common for naughty children in the area to be threatened with the Iron Man - a local equivalent of the Bogeyman - by their exasperated parents.

Holy Grail

Neither Mr Smith or Mr Sanderson had televisions in their homes at the time, and neither had ever seen a horror movie or read a horror comic.

Comic book expert Barry Forshaw said getting their hands on one of the underground American horror comics had been like finding the Holy Grail for schoolyards of British children reared on the squeaky clean fare found every week inside the Beano and Dandy - both of which are produced in Scotland.

The story of the Gorbals Vampire had been a gift to the unlikely alliance of teachers, communists and Christians who had their own individual reasons for crusading against the corrupting influence of American comics, he said.

Mr Forshaw added: "It was a perfect fit. Here was a campaign that was looking for things to justify itself, and then this event happens.

"It is ironic that the moral furore began in Scotland, where the comics could not have been more safe."
