~ And Now, On With The Show! ~


It all began during the summer of 1993 when one night Tony had a close encounter with a strange UFO behind his house. Tony never saw the UFO again, However, two days later his life was to change abruptly when he began to receive a series of mysterious messages in his mailbox that were delivered without a return address.

"The first letter stated that the individual writing to me knew all about my low-level UFO sighting and indicated that he was actually on board the craft at the time of the encounter. He said that by picking up on my vibrations they were able to tell that I was not a threat to their continuing operations in my area and that, basically, I was a kind person at heart -- one that really cared about other people and wished to see those around me prosperous and live a life of harmony with what they called the laws of creation."

Over a period of time, Tony has received numerous letters, all of which seem to indicate an alien
presence on Earth. "It's as if they are living amongst us -- know our trouble and are able to offer
advice on the subject that matter to us the most."

While the messages received from "MR X" may be delivered by his friendly rural mail carrier in
an ordinary manner, this not the first time that such unusual -- and apparently otherworldly - communications have come through the postal system. In Spain the most famous of all UFO incidents involves a highly classified group of ETs from the planet UMMO who have established
bases here as far back as the 1950s and have contained several outstanding researchers to reveal their existence on our planet. Gordon Creighton and Antonio Ribera provide a unique look at this extraordinary race of aliens who even posed for the camera with their planet of origin clearly designated on the body of the craft for all to see.

This is one of the most amazing UFO/ET episodes of all time and all the evidence and documents are presented here in English for the first time, as well as the complete testimony of Tony in Canada who underwent a similar dramatic experience as outlined above.

Chinese Scientists 'Filmed UFO For 40 Minutes'

The UFO world is alive with speculation that China is about to reveal details of startling and detailed footage of an unidentified flying object taken during the solar eclipse on July 22.

Scientists at the Purple Mountain Observatory in Nanjing are reported to have confirmed that they filmed a UFO during the eclipse for 40 minutes. They say that they will spend the next 12 months studying the footage before drawing any conclusions.

The director of the observatory, Ji Hai-sheng, told sina.com that scientists would not be speculating publicly on the nature of what was captured on film until it had been properly studied.

He added:"'Purple Mountain Observatory and Chinese Academy of Sciences said that during the July 22 total solar eclipse observation, China had discovered near the sun, by observing staff, an unidentified object, it's physical nature remains to be further studied.

"Currently manpower is being organized to deal with this data, complete the data analysis and reveal the scientific results and this will take at least one year's time to finalise."

The incident follows a series of UFO sightings in China which culminated in an object being captured on film by students in Deqing. The footage, which was featured on Chinese television, appears to show the object repeatedly changing shape after initially appearing as a glowing blue sphere.

Oil Boom Fuels Mystery of the Missing Island

The mystery has come to haunt Mexico as unrelentingly as one of its beloved soap operas: where is Bermeja, an island off the Yucatan coast that appears to have vanished without trace?

The disappearance of Bermeja is no laughing matter – it would allow Mexico to extend its maritime border some 55 miles further north, helping it to fight off what it sees as American encroachment on its claims to potentially vast oil reserves in the Mexican Gulf.

Hunger for news of the missing island has intensified – along with bizarre speculation about what could have happened to it – as Mexico and America ponder a new drilling agreement.

Mexico’s hunt for Bermeja has been given urgency by BP’s announcement last week of a big find in the Gulf, the latest in a series of discoveries that has turned the area into one of the oil world’s most promising exploration regions.

Some have scented skulduggery on an epic scale and conspiratorially minded Mexican nationalists have seized on the mystery as an opportunity to bludgeon America, a standard reflex when things go wrong south of the Rio Grande.

They accuse the great behemoth in the north of destroying the island – described in some accounts as a sand bar or coral clump and in others as a volcanic rock rising out of the sea – to undermine Mexico’s oil claims. Others argue that natural causes, from rising sea levels to earthquakes, may have brought about the demise of Bermeja, which means bright red in Spanish.

It appears on maps as early as the 1500s and as late as 1941. Mexican Islands, a book published in 1946 by the country’s Institute of Geography, lists Bermeja’s coordinates; so do publications by the distinguished Mexican Society of Geography and Statistics. The longitude and latitude of Bermeja are given on Google Earth and in a CIA atlas. However, Mexican expeditions sent to the island in the past decade have been forced to return home without a glimpse of it.

Doubts about Bermeja’s existence surfaced more than a decade ago but were kept quiet so as not to cause panic. The Alacranes islets much further south were the point of reference for a 1997 treaty on maritime limits between Mexico and America and a 2001 “doughnut hole” accord – a reference to one of the gaps between American and Mexican territorial waters.

Mexican legislators fighting a rearguard action in favour of the island’s existence have been dealt a blow after a land and air search of the region: a report to the Mexican Congress by the National Autonomous University of Mexico concluded that “the island does not exist”.

Elias Cardenas, chairman of the parliament’s maritime committee, said there were four more possible sites where the island might lie. He called for more studies before Mexico and America formalise the next drilling agreement. “Right now, the big fight is for oil,” he said. He did not believe the United States had bombed the island, as some have suggested.

Others took a different view. “There is no doubt the gringos are behind this,” wrote Marco on a nationalist website. “Let’s not forget that they stole California.”

The Nazi UFO Controversy: Banned In 22 Countries"
"UFOs, Nazi Secret Weapons?"

By Sean Casteel

When Timothy Green Beckley chose to publish "UFOs, Nazi Secret Weapons?" he realized he was taking a risk of no mean proportions. Beckley even carefully declares on the book's cover that this edition is not endorsed by himself, any known UFOlogists or conspiracy theorists, and most certainly not the Space Brothers.

Why all this care and concern? After all, there has been much written already about the possibility that some UFOs were designed by Nazi scientists working feverishly against the clock as the eventual defeat of Germany in World War II came to be seen as more and more inevitable. Even renowned author and conspiracy theorist Jim Maars talks about the flying saucers on the drawing boards of Nazi weapons designers without so much as ruffling the feathers of everyday UFO believers in his recent book "The Rise of the Fourth Reich: The Secret Societies That Threaten To Take Over America."

The difference with Beckley's new offering is that "UFOs, Nazi Secret Weapons?" was written by a genuine, unapologetic Nazi sympathizer named Mattern Friedrich, who also went by the pseudonyms Christof Friedrich and Ernest Zundel. However he was named, one learns in Beckley's cautious introduction that Friedrich originally wrote the book in the 1970s and it was the very first to put forth the idea that some flying saucers were of Nazi design. All other treatments of the subject followed in its wake, although usually with a more morally palatable point of view. Friedrich did time in jail in both Canada and the U.S. for various hate crime violations and at one point stated that pursuing his vision had cost him some years of freedom but the public notoriety that came with it had also given him more free publicity than he could have ever imagined.

The worth of this document some thirty or so years down the line is purely as an historical artifact. In a manner similar to the 1935 Nazi propaganda film "Triumph of the Will," directed by Leni Riefenstahl, it is undeniably a work of true evil. But it is also, in its own specialized context, a museum piece of 20th century UFOlogical theory that may have some merit in purely speculative terms.

For instance, there are few who would dispute the fact that immediately after World War II, both the U.S. and Russia began to gather together former Nazi scientists and put their expertise to work for the purposes of the Allies. It is a generally acknowledged fact that our own space program could not have been the success it was without imported Nazi know-how. The program was called "Operation Paperclip" here in the U.S., and it remains a vital link in the chain in the understanding of present day conspiracy theory. Could there have been a few flying saucer blueprints imported as well?

While Friedrich touches on that aspect of military history, he also writes as a true Nazi. He denies the Holocaust ever happened while claiming that Hitler was a sadly misunderstood humanitarian. He also milks the idea that Hitler didn't die in his bunker in April of 1945 but instead escaped to freedom in Antarctica, where he continued to await the perfecting of flying saucer technology. Everyone from Stalin to Eisenhower is supposed to have entertained the belief that Hitler was still alive, working his evil machinations from some kind of secluded technological wonderland.

One must at least acknowledge the fact that Friedrich is a coherent writer. He tries to buttress his arguments with historical data he has collected over the years, which includes letters from some of the alleged participants and witnesses to the Nazi's flying saucer research, as well as drawings and diagrams he claims came directly from top secret research laboratories. All of which is reprinted here, as well as several newspaper and magazine articles that deal with some UFO sightings relevant to his case here and throughout the world. Plus the book is packed with photos of purported German-made saucers and conceptual artwork.

More than one UFO witness has apparently declared that the aliens they had the privilege of speaking to spoke to them in German or in English with a German accent. It is claimed in another case that the traces left behind by a landed UFO included a swastika embedded into the ground. These instances are admittedly rare and could easily instead be a twisting of the facts designed to support this repellant Nazi theory of UFOs.

The package also includes a 60 minute CD called "Nazi Flying Saucers and the New World Order," hosted by the ever popular Commander X. (The commander, it should be noted, is no ex-Nazi himself, but rather a patriot who says he is currently being hunted by the New World Order because of his fearless disclosures of secret information.) The CD asks such topical questions as: Did the Nazi regime end with the conquest of Germany by Allied Forces? Did top secret antigravity technology allow the Third Reich to continue its grip on sinister power at either or both of the polar bases? That last has been a popular theory that argues for entrances at the poles leading deep into the interior of the Earth where, again, the Nazis may have concealed themselves in order to reemerge and conquer an unsuspecting world.

In any case, if you have the stomach for the kind of ignorant rhetoric and appallingly self-serving commandeering of the UFO phenomenon expressed in "UFOs, Nazi Secret Weapons?" then you may find the whole business readable for the sake of the aforementioned historical curiosity. Sort of like seeing a concentration camp while taking a tour of Germany, witnessing a horror that one prays never repeats itself, a tragedy that for the time being threatens to recur only in the darkest of visions of our collective future.

Christ himself was Jewish and certainly never intended his people to suffer the centuries of racism and oppression that followed his death on the cross. I have written some books on the subject, including "UFOs, Prophecy and the End of Time" and "Signs and Symbols of the Second Coming," all of which take a very positive view of the aliens and are available at Amazon.com and on my website at www.seancasteel.com ]

Some Wonder if Mysterious Image in Picture is Bigfoot

Conspiracy theorist have tried to prove the possibility of aliens, sea monsters, and even shape shifters, now there is a mystery Jefferson County. Kenny Mahoney, born and raised in Fairdale, Kentucky snapped a picture of what some people are calling Big Foot.

His hunting camera, which is operated by a motion detector, normally picks up rabbits, deer and turkeys, but on September 1 around 2:15 p.m. it picked up a strange image that looks like some sort of large black creature, one Mahoney estimates taller than he.

"It looked like it had the outline of a head, and like gorilla type shoulders, and then the arms crossed is what it looks like to me," said Mahoney.

Mahoney said it would be very hard for him to believe Big Foot is living in his backyard, but is stumped as to what else it could be.

"One of the explanations my brother-in-law said it may be a garbage bag blowed up in there, but all the smashed over vegetation in there-I really don't know," said Mahoney. "I have no idea what it is."

Mahoney's wife Margaret sent the photo to a wildlife expert who specializes in black bears. She said it looks like it is fur and not a trash bag, but still cannot confirm it is a bear.

The Ion Lift Air Vehicle: The Ring of The 1948 Luftwaffe Bell

Nick Cook of Jane's Aviation Weekly is one of my favorite journalists exploring the UFO phenomenon. While I was watching his television documentary on this subject retitled "Alien History of Earth," I was struck by his insertion at the end of the program of the claim by a gentleman in Seattle, Washington who had a seemingly anti-gravity lifting platform in his garage which utilized ion propulsion.I was rather surprised to see Nick view this as a new technology, although at the end of the program he briefly eluded to the origin of terrestrial "anti-gravity" Third Reich experimentation with such craft now relegated to a mythological status.One of the admirable traits Mr Cook has is one my own favorite techniques of examination, in terms of historical context, as a certain Mr Keel also noted the parallel path of UFO activity in relation to earthbound events, not as isolated quirks or mere coincidences, a term which is simply a place marker for unanswered questions.

In August of 1964, forty five years ago, a long forgotten article appeared in Popular Mechanics entitled "Major DeSeversky's Ion-Propelled Aircraft by Hans Fantel. It is well worth reading. The simple reason for this is that in the program that Nick Cook had assembled, I was struck to by the similarity of this high voltage craft to that of the Nazi Bell experiments using a similarly tethered vehicle, at least that was the uncorroborated testimony of now long dead witnesses. By the way' this legendary craft makes a nice paper weight for those with admittedly exotic tastes.

"It was downright spooky. Without a sound, the peculiar, spiky contraption rose straight up, hovered awhile, climbed higher. Then it did a few graceful turns, stopped again, and just sat there silently in midair. It seemed like levitation --- some trick to overcome gravity. I could not shake off the feeling that I was attending a kind of spiritual seance, or maybe a Buck Rogers show, instead of an engineering demonstration. The eerie scene took place in the big barn like laboratory of Electron-Atom Inc., research firm in Long Island City, New York, devoted to the development of a new kind of flying machine. I had been invited to watch a scale model being put through its paces by remote control. What we saw was by far the oddest aircraft since the Wright Brothers' motorized kite.

It had no prop. No jet. No wings. In fact, it had no moving parts at all looking somewhat like an old-fashioned bedspring, the rectangular rig is the nearest thing to a magic carpet. It needs no runway, takes off vertically and is expected to climb as high as 60 miles. It can crawl through the air like a snail, or go faster than a jet. Nobody yet knows the speed limit.After a while, I closed my mouth. But David Yorysh, one of the project engineers, noticed my puzzlement.

(Ed Note: Of course to the vast majority of us this description has a very familiar ring both in Nazi mythology as well as in the description of the type of craft predominately reported in the two decades of post war reports, which of course are simply coincidental, right?)

"Any questions?" he grinned.
"Yes. What holds it up?"
"Ions," said Yorysh, as he launched into an explanation of a wholly new flight concept. The magic carpet, called the Ionocraft, flies on pure electricity. It depends specifically on the fundamental principle of electricity that electric current always flows from negative to positive, and it uses two basic pieces of equipment to take advantage of this principle --- tall metal spikes that are installed above an open wire-mesh grid. High negative voltage is shot from the spikes toward the positively charged wire grid, just like negative and positive poles on an ordinary battery. As the negative charge leaves the spike arms, it peppers the surrounding air like buckshot, putting a negative charge on some of the air particles. Such negatively charged air particles are called ions, and these are attracted downward by the positively charged grid.

"Okay," I said. "But I still don't see what holds it up." "I'm getting to that," Yorysh assured me as he spelled out the rest of the Ionocraft principle. In their mad rush from the ion emitter to the main grid, the ions bump into neutral air molecules-air particles without electric charge. The terrific wallop in these collisions hurls a mass of neutral air down-ward along with ions. When they reach that air grid, the ions being negative are trapped by positive charge on the grid. but the grid has no attraction for the neutral air particles that got bumped along. So the air flows right through the open grid mesh, making a downdraft beneath the Ionocraft. The contraption rides on this shaft of air, getting lift just like a helicopter --- by sucking air down from the top.

"Aerodynamically, it works just like a chopper," Yorysh summed it up. "But instead of using a rotor and blades, we create the downward air flow electrically by means of ionic discharge. The ions act on the air like a man treading water. They just push down." The engineers working on Ionocraft are the first to admit that their present rig is still a long way from any kind of practical aircraft. The model we saw measures only 1296 square inches and consists of about $5 worth of balsa wood and aluminum wire. But the principle holds an important promise for the future of aviation.

The problem now is improving efficiency --- getting enough lift from a given grid area and a given amount of energy, Present models cannot yet lift their own electric generators. they get power through a feeder cable, dangling down like an umbilical cord. Ionocraft engineers tend to be close-mouthed on performance figures.But they will tell you that at present it takes 90 watts (30,000 volts at 3 milliamperes) to fly a two ounce model. Translated into ordinary power-to-weight ratios, this works out to roughly 0.96 hp. per pound, as compared with a typical 0.1 hp per pound of helicopter or 0.065 hp for a pound Piper Cub.

But Ionocraft designers are hard at work upping efficiency. One possible power --- boosting technique is to pulse the power in short high energy bursts rather than apply steady voltage. They are also trying out various grid patterns and ion emitter layouts to minimize energy loss through turbulence in the downdraft.Despite such unresolved problems, the development crew almost bristles with optimism, and the most optimistic of all is the Ionocraft's inventor Major Alexander P. de Seversky. No crackpot, Major de Seversky is a practical visionary who in many areas has been far in front of his field.

"We hope to fly a model with self-contained power, perhaps by the end of the year," he told me, confidently.

"Ultimately, the ionic drive will prove more efficient than either propeller or jet as a method of aircraft propulsion."It will achieve lift at less expenditure of energy and fuel than existing form of aircraft. In fact, it will prove the most efficient method of converting electricity into motion."

Coming from a man of de Seversky's background, such a statement has an almost prophetic ring. A leading aircraft designer and ace flyer for the past 50 years, de Seversky's ideas have often been ahead of their time-sometimes to the embarrassment of other aviation experts. Losing his right leg during his first flying mission in World War I didn't deter him from downing 13 enemy aircraft in later flights. After coming to the United States from Russia, de Seversky developed bombsights and course computers during the 1920s that were the forerunners of today's inertial guidance systems."

Of course, the events of 1964 not only included this article in a popular magazine but in the context of the parallel CIA involvement in the manipulation and eager encouragement of UFO sightings by the public, which may have led to the mythology associated with the strange and now infamous encounter of a policeman in the high desert.Rightly or wrongly I remain convinced that the Roswell Incident was a staged ploy to draw our Soviet operatives which had successfully compromised our nuclear weaponry technology.We also fell for this intelligence operation, hook line and sinker.

All this is simply a discontinuous thread, filed as an impossibly subterranean and covert alternative historical footnote..or is it? I came away with the question in mind that has to do with mimicry as a veil of stealth, whom is mimicking whom? More importantly where did the story of the Ionocraft end? Good question.

Texas Mystery: 'Defective Coyote' or Chupacabra?

The owner of a taxidermy school in Blanco, Texas, says he's been receiving more phone calls and attention than he'd like over the identity of a dead roughly 30-pound, mostly hairless coyote-like creature.

"I don't know what it is. ... I do know that I have an odd animal," Jerry Ayer said Thursday.

He said word spread quickly that he was in possession of an unknown animal -- often speculated in his region to be chupacabras, or mythical creatures, he said. Soon, the local, national and even international media picked up on what he said could be a "genetically defective coyote."

"Chupacabra" roughly translates from Spanish to "goat sucker." Reported victims are said to have puncture wounds to their necks, supposedly where the chupacabra drained their blood. Video Watch people examine mystery creature »

"I don't believe in the chupacabra," Ayer said, adding that he's been in the midst of a "media blitz" -- receiving 50 phone calls from media outlets and citizens, as well as death threats late at night -- since word got out about the strange beast.

"It's been rough on me," he said. "I'm almost at the point where I'm going to take my sign down and hide under a rock somewhere."

He said he received the body from a former student whose cousin owns the barn where the creature succumbed to poison left for rodents.

Before he knew it, he said, word spread that he had a chupacabra.

Ayers, who doesn't hunt and regards himself as a wildlife artist, said he intends to stuff and mount the animal.

He said Texas A&M University has taken tissue samples to determine exactly what it is, and other universities have also reached out to him.

"It'll probably end up in a museum," he said.

He's hopeful the attention will soon die down.

"There's no way I could teach with this," he said, explaining that his school, Blanco Taxidermy School, generally gives one-on-one instruction in the town of about 1,500 people about 50 miles west of Austin.

"I'm unable to do any of that right now just because of the media frenzy," he said.

Strange Transparent Spheres Fall Over Town in Thailand

A family in Phuket, Thailand had a close encounter with unidentified falling objects on September 6 when about a hundred small spheres 'dropped from the sky' onto their roof and garden.

The family of six said the transparent balls fell on their home in Wichit about 9am on Sunday directly after a rain shower.

“After the rain had stopped, we heard the sound of things falling on the roof,” said home owner 52-year-old Paweenarak Boonsiew.

Her son then went outside and discovered more than a hundred small, transparent balls on the ground.

The spheres each measure about one centimeter in diameter and are soft and pliable. They have no coloring and do not give off any odor.

Officials from the the Phuket Medical Sciences Center later collected some of the spheres for further examination, leaving the rest with Ms Paweenarak, who said she would keep them for good luck.

A spokesperson for the center told the Gazette that the collected spheres had been sent by plane to the Department of Medical Sciences in Bangkok.

“The findings will be announced as soon as possible,” said the officer.

The appearance of the balls has stirred much excitement among villagers, one of whom was tempted to chew one of the balls, before being reprimanded by Ms Paweenarak and told to wait for the results of the science center’s findings.

Many locals also see the event as a fortuitous omen and are making lottery predictions based on numbers surrounding the phenomenon.
