From the Days of UFOs Past - This Fantastic Book!


George Hunt Williamson – known as “Brother Philip” throughout the highlands of Peru, the jungles of South and Central America, and the arid plains of the Southwest – traveled the longest highway in the world, leading him to discover a vast road into the sky that can be linked to the arrival of visitors from elsewhere in the universe throughout the ages.

Within these pages are the stories of the Hopi Sun Clan, including the legends of the “Giant Star.” The secret of the Stone Tablets of Peru. The Time Spanners. The Beacon of the Gods. The Martian Miniatures. Fossils, Footprints and Fantasy. Evidence for the existence of the “Silent World,” and the reality of the Unholy Six.

Also this is the book that gives:
Williamson’s behind-the-scenes battle with the FBI and the Silence Group.
His investigation into the mysterious disappearances of Hunrath and Wilkinson, who might have been murdered or abducted by UFOs.

* The accusations of smuggling and his “association” with a sexy flying saucer pilot whom the FBI identified as a “ravishing woman commandant!”

Williamson, sometime in his life, must have come to realize that, in America, if you try to buck the status quo or change the system you can easily be slandered and identified as a dangerous dissident, whether you are called a communist, a fascist, or a neo-Nazi.

Many of the contactees of the early UFO/New Age communities were unduly slandered, as was the man aka “Brother Philip.” It was also suggested that Williamson was a “Mind-Controlled Soldier” of the Soviet Union, a label he found difficult to shake off during his years of battling with the “system.” How he persevered in spite of all this undeserved conflict makes for a story of true UFO heroism.

2014 Banker Death Count Reaches Double Digits
By Lee Arnold

Another banker death was reported last week, this one in Paris, and when lumped together with the demise of at least a dozen others recently, it certainly appears there might be a conspiracy afoot whose masterminds are targeting them for death.

From the consumer side of the equation it’s not hard to imagine someone might want to kill a banker, or have one killed. A few years ago I hit a financial sinkhole, where the money coming in was far less than the amount of money needing to go out. As a result, I over drafted my bank account by one dollar and some change. This triggered an over-draft fee $35 to be assessed to the account. Rather than settling the account immediately, I opted to pay a few bills, buy some food and let it ride until the next check came in. When I finally put some cash back in the account, I found out it was in the hole by more than $300.

Apparently after so many days with my account in the hole, it triggered another set of fees. This time, it was daily fees of $35 for every day that passed without settling the account. So my mistake of over drafting the account by an amount one no greater than what one might find in change lying underneath the driver’s seat of the car, became a bill equaling more than a minimum wage worker in the US makes in a 40-hour work week.

Practices like these are infuriating, especially when you think about the interest payments that are given to bank customers with healthy accounts. The healthier the account, the more more interest, aka free money, the bank gives you. The more unhealthy the account, the more hard-earned money bank takes from you.

This doesn’t even take into account the banking industry’s culpability in US housing market collapses and other more global economic struggles they have been credited with causing.

So it’s surprising to find an angry mob of consumers aren’t the culprits most often placed at the center of conspiracy theories around the recent deaths. Instead, the predominant conspiracy theories surrounding the deaths claim they are being orchestrated by big shots from the administrative side of the banking industry — government.

A banker, known only as Lydia, leaped from her office window Tuesday, April 22, at Bred-Banque-Populaire in France and fell to her death. She is the tenth banker, and possibly even the 33rd depending on the source, to be killed, or to have committed suicide, in 2014.

A few of the others commonly cited are:

William Broeksmit, a retired risk manager for Deutsche Bank, who was found hanging in his residence Jan. 26.

Karl Slym, managing director of India’s Tata Motors Ltd, who fell to his death from the window of a Bangkok hotel Jan. 26.
Gabriel Magee, a senior IT programmer at JP Morgan’s European headquarters, jumped to his death from Canary Wharf tower in London Jan. 29.
Mike Dueker, chief economist at Russell Investments, fell to his death after going over a fence beside the highway and falling down an embankment near the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State Jan. 29.
Richard Talley, founder and CEO of American Title Services, allegedly shot himself at least eight times with a nail gun at his Colorado home Feb. 4 (It should be noted he was being actively investigated by Colorado state insurance regulators for undisclosed reasons).
 Tim Dickenson, a communications director for Swiss Re AG in London, was found dead the week of Jan. 20. Details of his death still haven’t been released.
 Ryan Henry Crane, a JP Morgan employee, was found dead in his Stamford, Connecticut home Feb. 3. An official cause of death hasn’t been released, but it reportedly hinges upon toxicology test results.
Li Junjie, a junior-level trader working for JP Morgan in Hong Kong, leaped off the JP Morgan building to his death Feb. 18.
Kenneth Bellando, an investment banker with Levy Capital Partners in New York, and former JP Morgan employee, jumped from the roof of his apartment building March 12

James Stuart Jr, a former National Bank of Commerce CEO, who died Feb. 19, is often included in this list, but he was 57 and his cause of death, or whether it was suspected to be suicide, has not been publicly released that I can find, so it might have been one of natural causes.

Either times are tough in the banking industry, or there is something more nefarious at work here.

On October 30, 1929 Winston Churchill was in New York’s Savoy-Plaza Hotel. That morning when he arose and looked out his window he saw a crowd of people gathered in the street below. As he gazed down, the body of a man zipped by and crashed into the ground below. This was the day after Black Tuesday, which remains among the most significant, single-day crashes in the history of the US stock market.

That’s what Churchill allegedly told the Daily Telegraph during an interview in December of 1929 anyway. It might be true, but he was a politician, and even the great ones are prone to rhetoric from time to time.

I’ve never been sure why the two most famous days of the 1929 crash have always been called Black Thursday and Black Tuesday, when being “in the black” is considered a good thing by an accountant reporting on a business’s finances, but this isn’t really the place for such pondering with any great detail, so I’ll move on.

Investment professionals did commit suicide following the massive stock crashes on the “black” days of October of 1929, but since I’ve already paraphrased the words of one famous person from the history books in this piece, I’ll go ahead and paraphrase another, Mark Twain, rumors of the rampant self-inflicted deaths have been greatly exaggerated. (I’m not the first to paraphrase his exaggerated death quote either. In fact, no one ever seems to get it exactly right.)

A Slate Magazine article openly wondering why we weren’t seen mass suicides during the banking “crisis” of 2008, claimed only four of the 100 suicides, or suicide attempts, reported by the New York Times between October 24, 1929, aka Black Thursday, and the end of the year, were directly attributed to the crash itself.

That’s not to say there weren’t more than just the four suicides the Times linked to the crash, because more certainly did occur in New York and elsewhere, and a handful of suicides were even reported during the similarly named crash in 1987. There is no evidence to support claims like the one made by Will Rogers who said those wishing to leap from a window had to get in line behind countless others to do so. It’s likely quotes from the likes of Rogers, Churchill, and others perpetuated the rumor of rampant suicides.

The current situation is quite different than those surrounding previous crashes in that the entire industry is taking heat for actions alleged to go beyond the scope of what is legal and moral. They are also different in that the current league of investment pirates’ are perceived to have reaped profits from their actions, rather than losing everything they have in life like their predecessors did in 1929.

Another difference is the current crew of money professionals has to deal with the pressure of being under the watchful eye of government spies, being considered public enemy number one by many, and being beholden to politicians who often better resemble warmongers than public servants.

So the environment is ripe for conspiracy theories to flourish and with each new death, the conspiracy theories surrounding the deaths flourish by an exponential amount.

If you have a lot of time on your hands, and who doesn’t, you could spend the better part of an afternoon just watching YouTube videos about the conspiracy behind the banker deaths of 2014.

Among the most popular theories proposed is that we are on the precipice of a global economic collapse so catastrophic and irreversible, that those with knowledge of the system and access to data the Average Joe doesn’t see, are opting to die now, rather than face the days lying ahead for the rest of us.

Our pending doom has been speculated since at least 1972, when an MIT study looked at the rate of population growth versus resources consumption and projected a global collapse, complete with a significant population decline, by the year 2030. Some still claim the world is right on track with MIT’s projections, but even according to them we’re still a few years from the kind of resource depletion likely to set off global panic among bankers.

The tumbling European economy is more likely to be considered a pressing issue at the moment for bankers than depleted resources are at this point, although resources could play a major role in how things play out.

The economic turmoil in Greece, where more than one in four are unemployed, and the economy as a whole has shrunk by 25% in the four years following a bailout totaling billions of dollars, means the nation isn’t likely to see a significant recovery soon.

Record unemployment rates have also been reported in France, where the number of unemployed doubled in 2013 to a total of 11%.

Then there are the volatile situations in Ukraine and Russia. The super-simplified version of that situation is that a political upheaval earlier this year in Ukraine resulted in the ousting of its Russia-friendly president, causing Russia to raise prices on the natural resources it provided to the already cash-strapped country. There is much more to it than that, but this piece is already going to be long enough, and the situation seems to change from day to day.

It just so happens Russia is also a major source for petroleum products for all of Europe, and is a major supplier of natural gas as well. Should Russia decide to drastically raise prices for everyone, or just cut the EU off entirely, it would likely set off a domino effect of global economic strife.

So whose ready for World War III?

Apparently not the money-industry folks who have died by their own hand this year, if any of these factors are even relevant to their deaths. It is just a conspiracy theory at this point, right?

Then there is the theory the deaths are related to the allegations of banks conspiring together to maliciously manipulate international currency exchange rates to benefit themselves.

The FOREX theory is one that might also have some legs to it, especially when it comes to JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank, who were both named in a lawsuit filed by investors in US District Court. Ten other banks were also named in the lawsuit. The plaintiffs claim to have evidence, such as electronic communications, proving the conspiracy to manipulate exchange rates had been going on since at least 2003.

If you go down the list of 2014 bank-related deaths provided earlier, which again might not even be a complete list depending on the sources you consider credible, you might notice almost half of them were currently employed at one of the dozen banks listed in the lawsuit, and another one or two them allegedly worked previously at one of the banks being sued.

Currency exchange rates can make or break a nation’s economy as it directly affects other nations’ interest in doing buying and selling goods with it. If this false manipulation occurred, and it seemingly did, it wouldn’t be a major stretch to claim it might be at least somewhat responsible for the economic struggles of nations such as Greece.

Given the international impact such actions could have, it’s no wonder some conspiracy theorists believe the rash of suicides might actually be a rash of well-orchestrated politically-motivated murders instead.

The influence of money inevitably equals power, and banks are at the center of finance, so banking is an inherently high-stakes power struggle with potentially great consequences when things go wrong. Whether this year’s banker deaths are the result of money and power converging to avenge the shenanigans of bankers, or whether it’s just one of those weird coincidences, remains to be seen.

Officially, none of the deaths have been ruled suspicious. Neither the guy who shot himself with a nail gun at least eight times, nor the guy who jumped over a fence by the freeway and subsequently went over an embankment, are officially being considered a suspicious deaths, despite their sounding quite suspicious to a number of people who read the news reports.

It’s likely we’ll all continue playing the guessing game about the banker deaths of 2014 for many years, until eventually, someone, somewhere, who is currently directly involved in an actual conspiracy to kill bankers for whatever reason, decides to come forward and pull back the curtain of secrecy.

Of course, if there isn’t someone who eventually comes forward with salacious details about hit men hunting down bankers, the conspiracy theories currently doing their best to break the Internet, will undoubtedly continue on in perpetuity.

The Werecat of Britain
by Nick Redfern 

For decades, the British Isles have played host to a decidedly mysterious and marauding beast. It has become known as the “Alien Big Cat,” or the ABC. Some cryptozoolgists and monster-hunters suggest the puzzle is an even older one, maybe even dating back centuries. Regardless of when, exactly, the controversy began, the fact is that, pretty much every year, dozens upon dozens of reports surface of large cats roaming the wilder – and sometimes the not so wild – parts of Britain.

Very often, the cats are described as being huge, muscular and black in color. This has given rise to the term “black panther,” which is actually incorrect, but frequently used by both the public and the press. It would be far more correct to suggest the creatures are probably leopards and jaguars displaying significant melanism – a condition in which there is an excess of a black pigment known as melanin.

As for how such creatures have come to be seen across pretty much the entirety of the British Isles, the theories are as many as they are varied. Some researchers hold that the animals have escaped from private zoos and enclosures and are now living and thriving very nicely in the nation’s woods and forests.
Others suggest that back in 1976, when the British Government significantly altered the rules and regulations governing the keeping of large, predatory animals, the owners of such cats – who couldn’t afford to pay the new fees – secretly released their pets into the wild. And, today, so the theory goes, what people are seeing are the descendents of those large cats set free in the 1970s.

Other theories are far more controversial: one suggests the ABCs may have been with us since roughly AD 43, when invading Roman forces brought large cats to Britain in the form of mascots. Did some of those mascots escape and manage to survive and breed, largely undetected? Some say: Yes. Then there is the highly-charged theory that Britain has in its midst an unidentified indigenous cat – one that science and zoology have yet to recognize or categorize.

Whatever the answer to the question of the origins of Britain’s ABCs, the fact is that their presence is pretty much accepted by the general public and the media – although largely not by the government, which prefers to play down the matter whenever and wherever possible. But they are not literal monsters: they’re simply regular animals, albeit seen in distinctly out of place environments, correct? Well…maybe not. They just might be monsters, after all.

Although many ABC researchers cringe and squirm when the matter is brought up, the fact is there are more than a few reports on record that place the ABCs in a category that is less flesh and blood-based and far more paranormally-themed. There are cases of the ABCs vanishing – literally – before the eyes of astonished witnesses. People report large black cat encounters in old graveyards, within ancient stone circles, and even – on a few occasions – in association with UFO sightings. And then there is…something else.

I have in my files four cases – spanning 1953 to 1988 – in which witnesses to ABCs described the creatures rearing up onto their hind legs. Yes, we are talking about nothing less than huge, black, bipedal cats. All of which brings us to the world of shape-shifters.

Throughout history, folklore and mythology, one can find accounts of shape-shifting creatures, with the most famous example surely being the werewolf. The deadly monster of the full moon is far from being alone, however. In Africa, there are legends of werehyenas. Wererats have been reported in Oregon. Cynanthropy is a condition in which a person believes they can shape-shift into the form of a dog. And then there are werecats.

Tales of werecats exist in numerous locations: South America, Asia, Africa, and Europe. Sometimes the werecats are nothing less than transformed humans. Leopards, lions, tigers and jaguars are typically the werecat forms into which a human shape-shifter mutates. Others are regular cats, altered by dark magic into something hostile and terrible. All of which brings us back to the werecats of Britain.

As I noted above, the earliest case I have on file dates from 1953, specifically the month of August. The location: Abbots Bromley, a village in the English county of Staffordshire; the origins of which date back to at least AD 942. The witness was a now-deceased man, Brian Kennerly. In 2002, Kennerly’s family told me of how he often spoke of the occasion when, as he walked through Abbots Bromley on what was a warm, summer’s night, he was confronted by a large black cat – one that he described as the typical “black panther.”

Not surprisingly, Kennerly was frozen in his tracks. His amazement turned to outright fear when the beast suddenly rose up onto its back limbs, giving it a height of around five and a half feet. The creature reportedly issued a low growl and flicked its dangling front paws in Kennerly’s direction. Notably, Kennerly’s daughter told me her father said that as the ABC rose up, “its back legs changed shape, probably to support it when it was standing upright.” A few seconds later, the creature dropped back to the ground and bounded out of sight.

A similar report, this one from the centuries-old village of Blakeney – in the English county of Norfolk – occurred in 1967. In this case, the witness, who was driving to Blakeney on a cold, winter’s night, caught a brief glimpse of a creature standing at the side of the road that was eerily similar to the one seen by Brian Kennerly fourteen years previously. In this case, the woman said: “It stood like a person, but stooped, but had a cats head. Even the pointed ears.”

The final two cases in my files are separated by seven years – 1981 and 1988 – but the location was the same: the German War Cemetery located within the heavily wooded Cannock Chase, Staffordshire. The Chase has long been a hotbed for weirdness: Bigfoot-type creatures, werewolves, huge serpents, ghosts, UFOs and much more of a supernatural nature have been reported in the depths of the Chase.

As for the two reports of werecat-type creatures seen at the cemetery, one was a daytime event involved a beast that was black in color, taller than the average man, and seen leaning on one of the gravestones. That is, until it realized it was being watched and it dropped to all-fours and raced off into the trees. The second case concerned a van-driver crossing the Chase late at night and who was forced to bring his vehicle to a halt – very near the cemetery - as a result of the presence in the road of a huge black cat. It was a cat that stared intently at the shocked driver, until it “sort of jumped onto its back legs.” According to the man, Don Allen, the creature remained in view for no more than about twenty seconds, after which it headed towards the cemetery, making a curious “hopping and bouncing” movement as it did so.

Are infernal werecats really roaming the British Isles? Granted, the number of reports is small. And yet, the witnesses – and, in the case of Briain Kennerly, his family – are adamant that what they encountered were large, black, upright cats that displayed vaguely human characteristics. Perhaps the old myths and legends are not just folklore after all. Just maybe, the monstrous werecat really does roam the old landscapes of the British Isles…

The Remarkable Odyssey of Journeyman Paranormal Writer Tim R. Swartz
Part 2
By Sean Casteel

“I picked them up and touched them,” he continued, “and they were slightly warm to the touch.” 

Swartz then recalled a story he had read in a book by paranormal researcher Ivan T. Sanderson and decided to use a similar approach in testing the rocks. Swartz marked each of the rocks with an “x” using a felt tip pen and chucked them out the back door into a cornfield directly behind the house. As soon as he returned to his seat in the living room, the rocks were back, dropping from the ceiling in the exact same way as before. 

“When I picked them up,” he said, “they were the very same rocks, marked with an ‘x.’ I still have those rocks.” 

And how did this otherworldly experience actually make him feel emotionally?

“I was elated,” he replied. “That’s how I felt. I was excited. Here was something that I was holding in my hand that I knew unquestionably I had just thrown into the cornfield behind me, and that there couldn’t have been any way that anybody could have picked them up and found some way to drop them down in front of me. This was exciting. There are just no words to describe the emotions that I was feeling, but it was excitement.” 

Shortly after the incident, the couple reported to Swartz that the poltergeist phenomena had stopped, as though whatever energy involved had been “used up.” These events had taken place in 1983, but Swartz also told the story of a much more recent experience he had with teleportation. 

“It’s one of those things,” he said, “where you just have to shrug your shoulders because there doesn’t seem to be any purpose or meaning to it. It’s just something strange that happened. I was taking my daughter over to her babysitter, and I was standing in the kitchen talking to the babysitter for a little bit before I left. On my left-hand side there was a counter that had three or four decorative tins that are used to hold candy or popcorn, that sort of thing. One of them, all of a sudden, shook like there was something inside of it. Both the babysitter and I were quite a ways away from it. But I’m looking directly at it, and it shook! Then it slid across the counter, almost to the edge of the counter, on its own.” 

Although the babysitter had had her back turned to the decorative tin and its strange motions, she had heard it, and she asked Swartz, “Did that can just move?” 

Swartz said, “Yeah,” then walked over to the can, opened the lid and looked inside. The can was empty, and the counter was dry. There had been no earthquake; the can was the only thing that moved. 

“It bemused me,” he said, “surprised me, and was a little bit exciting. Once again, right in front of my eyes, something happened with no normal explanation as to why it happened.”

The babysitter was probably in her mid-thirties, Swartz said, and the kids in the house were all toddlers, which renders one common explanation, that poltergeist energy is often generated by the psychological and emotional angst of adolescent females, moot. The house itself was relatively new and did not carry the haunted baggage that might burden an older house. 

The babysitter was not a believer in the paranormal. When Swartz asked her if anything similar had ever happened before, she said no and shrugged her shoulders. Swartz added that when the can – which was a little bigger than a coffee can – first  began to shake, he was aware of it only through his peripheral vision but had quickly turned to look at it full on. After it stopped shaking and slid across the counter, he thought perhaps there was something living inside it, like a mouse had gotten into it and was causing it to move, because the can had seemed in some way “alive.” 

“It’s one of those things,” he said, “where you just go, ‘What the hell? What is the reason for that?’”

Swartz next compared teleportation to time travel, saying they are two different aspects of the same phenomenon.  

“If you think about it,” he said, “when it comes to the teleportation events that we have seen, especially in haunting and poltergeist experiences, we’re talking about an almost instantaneous transference of matter from one point to another. And unlike, say, ‘Star Trek,’ where you would have a teleportation machine that would supposedly take apart a person or an object bit by bit, and then reassemble them at a distance – I just wonder if this phenomenon may not be accessing ‘hyperspace.’ Hyperspace is kind of an antiquated term now in science fiction, but it refers to a timeless realm, so to speak, that is outside of our own space/time reality. 

“If that’s the case,” he went on, “then that shows that teleportation and time travel may be a lot easier to access than our current understanding of physics allows for. If you have something, like a discarnate spirit or even an aspect of our own consciousness, that is somehow able to utilize paranormal abilities, then there must be a way that that can be accessed on a regular basis, something scientifically proven that can be repeated time and time again.”

There exists, according to Swartz, a kind of “paranormal continuum” that combines things like teleportation and time travel along with UFOs, Bigfoot, ghosts, etc. 

“That’s the point I’m trying to make,” he said. “It’s very common in poltergeist hauntings to have the instantaneous movement of objects from one place to another and sometimes into locations that would be physically impossible to get to in the short amount of time that they occurred. And not just little objects, but big objects, too, even people. And is there much of a difference between some UFO encounters and paranormal encounters? Because you see almost the same phenomena talking place. A lot of witnesses claim that shortly before and after a UFO experience their houses experience haunting phenomena, poltergeist phenomena, which persist for quite a while.”

The UFO occupants themselves also seem to show paranormal abilities, such as becoming transparent, walking through walls, as well as appearing and disappearing in the blink of an eye. 

“Is everything involved – UFOs, Bigfoot, ghosts, whatever,” Swartz asked, “is this all in the realm of the paranormal? Or are we using the word ‘paranormal’ because we just don’t have the language to explain all this? It’s so far outside our realm of understanding that we just don’t have the words to describe it.” 

But Swartz does not concern himself only with the mysteries of the paranormal. He also takes a keen interest in decidedly more “human” pursuits, like the secret conspiracy he and so many others feel is already controlling many aspects of our daily lives. Swartz edits a free weekly online newsletter called “The Conspiracy Journal,” which covers many topics related to the dark controllers. 

“I think some of the most important stories that we’ve run on the ‘The Conspiracy Journal’ have to do with 9/11,” he said. “I think the lack of really good information behind the whole 9/11 conspiracy has made it extremely important for our time. It’s almost like the JFK assassination was to a generation. I think 9/11 fits right in there. The official explanations that were given to us by the government, while they sounded reasonable on the surface – there were still a lot of discrepancies. If anyone dug a little deeper, they discovered all kinds of situations that seemed to show there was more going on than what the government told us.”

Some of those discrepancies may have been totally innocent, Swartz acknowledges, adding that withholding some of the information from the public may have been necessary to protect intelligence interests, that sort of thing. Perhaps too much was made of those discrepancies, and investigators who did not properly vet their information ended up generating wild theories and explanations. 

“I think that’s why,” Swartz went on, “it’s extremely important that information, for the most part, not be hidden from the general public. The theories and suspicions that result from our not being told the truth end up being a lot wilder and can breed the situation we find ourselves in nowadays, where the general public has a lot of mistrust for our government. 

“I would say at this point that the majority of people feel that the government is always hiding something from us, and that even in merely mundane situations the government would prefer to lie to us rather than tell us the truth. That probably is not necessarily true, but we’ve been shown repeatedly that we’ve been given one story and after time goes by we’ve been shown the explanations that were given to us were downright lies. So it’s no wonder that there is a suspicion of the government, of the military/industrial complex.”  

While Swartz wisely gives the government the benefit of the doubt, he does not deny that a conspiracy of some kind exists.

“I think people are naïve,” he said, “to believe conspiracies aren’t a reality. We see them happening every day. For a long, long time now, the world has been taken over and is being run by an elite group of people that there are no checks and balances for. They’re not elected officials and the general public has no idea who they are. 

“Probably they come from a long line of royalty and money, from family groups that have been with us almost from the very beginning. I imagine there are probably new groups of people that enter into this elite group as new money is produced, especially when it comes to oil production, for example, and other forms of big money interests like banking and also from within the military/industrial complex.

“It’s not a perfect operation, of course. There’s just no way EVERYTHING can be controlled one hundred percent perfectly all of the time. But I do think that a lot of things that we attribute to just happenstance is actually under control. An economic crisis, war, elections, things like that – I think a lot of that is being manipulated behind the scenes.” 

People sometimes mistakenly believe that the conspiracy seized power last week, or a decade or two ago. Rather, this is something that has been going on practically throughout history. Swartz scoffs when conspiracy theorists talk about the Illuminati or a Secret One Hundred Year Plan to take over. The take-over has already happened a long time ago. The overall conspiracy is greatly focused on money and may ultimately lead to an economic enslavement of the entire world similar to the Mark of the Beast prophesied in the Book of Revelation in the Bible. 

“I don’t know if I would attribute it to some satanic origin,” Swartz cautioned. “I do think there are probably some of these elite groups who BELIEVE that what they’re doing is for a satanic agenda, which doesn’t necessarily mean that that is actually occurring on a spiritual basis. But it doesn’t matter, because whatever some of these groups believe about what they’re doing, it’s just as dangerous. 

“The whole thing about becoming more open with the Mark of the Beast, we’re seeing that today. More and more, the whole idea of paper money, money in your pockets, is being done away with in the form of electronic currency. Now we’re seeing things like bit-coin, which has taken it even a step further away. But I don’t think it’s ever going to be a process that is just suddenly thrust upon us. That’s not the way all of this works. It’s a slow, gradual process, and that’s the way it has always been.”

One could also view it, Swartz said, as a natural development of humanity’s growth, and one might even argue that humanity will, at some future point, possibly be able to “outgrow” this control by the underground elite.  

“Because, as technology continues to march forward,” he said, “information becomes even more readily available. Like is often said, knowledge is power. There will come a point when it will be impossible to keep that knowledge from us. It’s just the natural way of things. Eventually there will come a time when everyone will have access to enough information and enough knowledge that the entire controlling elite conspiracy will be antiquated. We won’t need it anymore.”

This process Swartz envisions won’t be an easy one, he said, and those in power will not give it up easily. It may require that wars be fought over it, but the conspiracy will someday end with “a whimper and not a bang.” 

Along with his duties editing “The Conspiracy Journal,” Swartz also co-hosts a two-hour radio show with paranormal writer Wm. Michael Mott called “The Outer Edge” and heard on the PSN-Radio Network. The show airs live on Sunday nights beginning at 11:59 Eastern time. The show’s website is: theouteredgeradio.com 

Mott and Swartz used to host a show called “Unraveling the Secrets,” but the original host of the show wanted to come back, so the PSN-Radio Network graciously gave Mott and Swartz a new show of their own. 

“It’s a wonderful program,” Swartz enthused. “We have all kinds of interesting guests. We don’t necessarily have to deal with paranormal subjects or UFOs or whatever. We do have guests along those lines, but we’ve also had underground cartoonists, guests like that. We had a guy on one time that was a martial arts expert and made knives and swords. We talked about the history of martial arts and the history of homemade weaponry. So ‘The Outer Edge’ can really cover just a wide gamut of subjects that interest us.” 

The program has a call-in portion and all the shows are archived on the program’s website and available to listen to free of charge. It is one among many of the paranormal-related programs offered by the PSN-Radio Network. Editor and publisher Timothy Green Beckley appears on the program once a month to act as co-co-host and brings interesting guests along, such as country singer Johnny Sands, who encountered a UFO and subsequently the Men-In-Black in Las Vegas in the 1970s. Swartz said there were plans to interview Tessa B. Dick, the widow of the late sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick, as well as Dr. Barry Taff, a psychic researcher who has written extensively about ghosts and UFOs, and whose work closely parallels many of Swartz’s beliefs and experiences. 

After having been immersed in the study of the paranormal most of his life, Swartz’s interest in the unexplained remains pleasantly undiminished. 

“This kind of stuff, the paranormal and the unexplained,” Swartz said, “is always going to fascinate me because it just goes to show us that, no matter what, there are no easy answers to this universe. Just when we think that we have everything solved, then something new pops up and sends us back to square one. And I think that’s the wonderful thing about our reality, is that I don’t think that we’ll ever have all the answers to what’s going on. And I like it that way.”

Locals in Bethel, Alaska Report 'Hairy Man' Sightings
By Lacie Grosvold

In recent weeks, a Southwest Alaska legend has shown legs -- or at least feet, if you believe those who say they've seen the Hairy Man.

Also known as Urayuli and depicted as a hermit with large feet, the story of the Hairy Man is similar to that of the Sasquatch. With the Delta Discovery newspaper's recent series of published Hairy Man stories from area residents, though, the long-told tale has become a bit more hair-raising.

Dana Kopanuk and his nephew were setnetting for whitefish on the Tarperrnaq River on a fall afternoon in 2011 when he said he saw the Hairy Man.

Kopanuk tells the story at his kitchen table in Bethel. He illustrates it with a pencil drawing he made of the area where they saw the Hairy Man.

The two were approaching their net when they saw someone walking through the willows on the bank. Kopanuk says the willows and brush would have been taller than he was, but this creature that looked like a man could easily see over the top of foilage. Kopanuk first registered it as a person -- until he saw that this creature was larger, hairier, and not wearing clothes.

Kopanuk said this creature didn't act like a person.

"If he were from camp, he would wait for us," Kopanuk said.

The two fishermen watched the creature for about 10 minutes until they moved along the river and the creature moved out of sight. While watching, it was difficult to comprehend what they saw, but Kopanuk said when they discussed it later, they decided it must have been Hairy Man.

Kopanuk's story is one of many that has been published in the Delta Discovery for more than a year. What's different about Kopanuk's story is that he let the paper publish his name. Many witnesses leave their name off their account, not wanting to be tied to these strange encounters.

"I say my name and I believe what I see," Kopanuk said.

Kopanuk said before the Delta Discovery started publishing stories, he hadn't heard a lot about the hairy man. Most of the stories are published with anonymous witnesses. Even the illustrator that creates drawings for the paper wants to be known only as "AI."

Kopanuk says he doesn't have theories about the creature he said he saw.

"I don't know where they live. I don't know how they survive," he said.

Despite the sighting, Kopanuk said he wasn't scared when he saw the Hairy Man because the creature isn't known to try to hurt people. To him, the story is simple.

"I saw what I saw," he said. "I'm not trying to defend it or anything."

At the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge office, large-game biologist Spencer Rearden isn't buying it.

"As a biologist," Rearden said, "Hairy Man does not exist."

Rearden grew up in Bethel. He studies moose and caribou, and says he doesn't need to believe in Hairy Man because these animals are fascinating on their own.

"They're more interesting. I know they're there. I see them." Rearden said.

Rearden says it would take a lot of hard evidence to change his mind.

"We would have to have hair samples. We would see footprints, possibly photographs and video," he said.

Margaret Nagasiak said she may have found that evidence pressed into the tundra.

She shows the picture of a print that she found when she was picking berries with a few family members. She says the photo shows a clear outline of toes, as part of a footprint larger than an average human foot.

"It felt like someone was watching us, but we looked around and we didn't see anybody," she said.

That feeling was a clue for the group to leave. They also noticed another harbinger of the Hairy Man's presence.

"It had some kind of stink smell," Nagasiak said.

Eyewitnesses say they're just sharing what they saw, despite a measure of skepticism from others.

"He's out there somewhere," Nagasiak said. "We just can't find him."

The Mystery of Dulce, New Mexico
By Brandon Mathis

Archuleta Mesa rises a few thousand feet over the small rural community of Dulce – hub of the Jicarilla-Apache Indian Reservation. A broad aesthetic plateau, it dominates the northern skyline.

Archuleta rock, as locals call it, appears normal. But it’s not what’s on the surface that creates an infamous chapter in the volumes of UFO stories.

It’s what is said to lie beneath.

Ufologists – those who study UFOs – claim Dulce is the site of a massive underground facility operated by the U.S. government and one or more alien races: a seven-story complex that connects to Nevada’s Area 51 and Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. The deeper you go, the darker it gets.

Some call Dulce a Cold War era government fallout shelter, far removed from alien races. Undeniably, residents of Dulce, a two-hour-plus drive southeast of Durango, seem to acknowledge that something is out of the ordinary.

Strong belief in UFOs

Theodoria Burns, a first responder with the Jicarilla-Apache Medical Service, said many Dulce residents believe in UFOs.

“Sometimes, weird things happen, like lights in the sky, different colors that vanish right away,” she said. “You think it’s an airplane, but it’s not.”

She said she has never seen a base, “but they say it does exist.”

The UFO researchers claim reports of strange lights, unidentified flying objects and cattle mutilations are higher surrounding the mesa.

In many accounts, a man named Thomas Edwin Castello, a character many say is fictional, claimed to be a senior security guard at the mesa’s secret underground base. According to lore, he came forward in 1979 with radical allegations.

Castello described a research facility, emphasizing the ominous sixth level, dubbed Nightmare Hall, where appalling operations and experiments were conducted by both humans and aliens.

He claimed alien abductions led to this unremarkable mesa, and what occurs, including cross-breeding and fertilization, is unimaginable.

Drawings surfaced of human-like fetuses in beakers, mutant captives in cages and vats of liquid containing human and inhuman body parts.

Among popular UFO community accounts, Castello claims to have quit his position as a security guard, going into hiding after a purported battle with the aliens inside the mountain, in which 70 humans supposedly were killed.

The resulting “Dulce Papers” proclaim infinite, shocking detail about aliens and secret technologies.

‘I hear things’

Calvin Martinez of Farmington has family in Dulce.

“I hear things. There are a lot of stories,” he said. “But one time I was at a cookout, and there was this light that came up, and it slowly merged across (the southern sky). People were taking pictures. It went around in circles and then back the way it came.”

Martinez mentioned a widely repeated UFO story of a woman who was found – unclothed – running from the mesa near the Navajo River.

“They picked her up, and she said she wasn’t from here, that they were doing all kinds of tests on her in that mountain,” he said.

While many maintain Castello is a fictional character, Paul Bennewitz is not. The Albuquerque electronics specialist ran Thunder Scientific Laboratories in the 1970s when he stumbled on what he claimed were UFO transmissions he traced to Archuleta Mesa, where he learned about the Dulce base. Later, he became convinced of a government conspiracy to discredit him.

In “The Dulce Report,” a published report by political scientist Michael E. Salla, formerly of American University and George Washington University, Salla wrote that when the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations became aware that Bennewitz was gaining attention, they developed an effort to discredit him by providing him erroneous information. Ufologist William Moore later went public saying that he was involved in a plot by the Office of Special Investigations to misinform Bennewitz, keeping him from collecting more accurate information.

Strange tales of aliens in league with the government and strange experiments are common among the UFO community.

New Mexico State Patrol Trooper Gabe Valdez, investigating various local reports, joined Dulce cattle rancher Edmund Gomez, whose cattle were being mutilated, and four other men to explore Archuleta Mesa in 1988. The group saw a UFO, said ufologist Jason Bishop, as well as lights coming from and fading into the mountain.

Several newspapers reported an “experimental boomerang aircraft” in the area, according to Bishop’s account. But Gomez and Valdez were suspicious.

Valdez wrote Dulce Base, a book about his investigations, and even appeared on the History Channel’s UFO Hunters in 2009. He revealed images: disturbing mutilations of cattle and what he claimed was a human hybrid found inside a cow. He also said he found gas masks and even a ballpoint pen at scenes.

A cow’s strange death

A resident who gave only a first name of Dee who works at Players Sports Bar & Grill in Dulce shared her own story from her family’s ranch.

“Our ranch has a canyon, real long, and the cows were way up at the end,” she said. “I guess something chased one down because you could see where it ran into the trees. It died, and where it laid there were three holes in the ground. There were no tracks, and that cow had no blood.”

Dee said she returned the next night, and the cow’s internal organs were gone.

“It had udders, but it was all burned out,” she said.

Cattle mutilations have been reported around Dulce for decades, Valdez said. But it’s the government, not alien activity, he said.

Dee said: “It was happening all over. I don’t know what it was, but the cows wouldn’t go up there for a long time.”

Dulce resident Shane Engle doesn’t believe in UFOs. Still, he can’t explain the time his mother’s car was taken over by an “unknown force” before she regained control. He also can’t account for the lights he’s seen. He does, however, believe in the mutilations.

“My uncle owned a ranch,” he said, pointing south. “One morning, he came out, and all the cows were hollow. No cuts, no wounds. They were hollow.”

Several Dulce residents declined to be interviewed but said that “something is going on up there.”

Norio Hayakawa, director of Civilian Intelligence Central, which bills itself as an oversight committee on government accountability, revealed the name of the base at a conference in 2010: Rio Arriba Scientific & Technological Underground Auxiliary.

One man said while exploring the mesa, he was stopped by “uniformed men who came out of nowhere.”

“That’s all I’m going to say,” he said, and walked away.

Maybe you don’t believe, like Engle, as he described eerie lights over an endless desert sky.

“I don’t believe in that stuff,” he said, “but I’ve seen it.”

Woman Says A Ghost is Haunting Her Pick-Up Truck

A beauty school student from Sacramento says she had to sell her car because it was being haunted by the spirit of her dead boyfriend.

Deanna Stinson says she had a series on spine-chilling experiences in her pick up truck which started days after her boyfriend Alex's unexpected death.

When a paranormal investigator checked the car, he recorded what the pair believe was a male voice trying to answer their questions.

Ms Stinson had been dating Alex for only a month in 2005 when he died of a drug overdose. Three days later she claims she had the first of several supernatural encounters with the 22-year-old.

She said she was driving through Sacramento while wearing a skirt that Alex had always admired on her, when she could feel someone touching her.
'I could feel touching on my hair and on my shoulders, on my thighs, just everywhere,' she told CBS Sacramento.

'My concentration would be lost a lot of the times, but I would just pray, and then it would stop,' she added.

On a couple of occasions the student became convinced she could see Alex in the rear view mirror and even in the passenger seat next to her.

In one encounter, she claimed that he appeared as a ghost in the back seat and began to give her a shoulder massage.

'I was starting to get freaked out and I don't like to be touched by ghostly hands, especially when I am driving,' she told the Knight Talk Radio website.

Ms Stinson says she had no choice but to get rid of the pick up truck but when the feeling that she was being haunted lingered, she called in a paranormal investigator.

Paul Dale Roberts, who has written several books about supernatural activity, used electronic equipment to test the truck.

The 59-year-old, who married Ms Stinson earlier this month, asked the spirit of Alex a series of questions and, when he played back the recording a muffled male voice could be heard.

'He’s definitely probably not attached to his car, but he’s attached to Deanna,' Mr Roberts said.

Ms Stinson says that although she has still felt the presence of Alex in her new car, she is happy for him to remain as long as he doesn't interfere with her driving.

Some Claim to Turn Off Streetlights With Their Bodies

People all over the world have noticed that streetlights turn off when they get near them and turn back on when they’ve passed.

A 53-year-old American housewife told Hilary Evans, a lead researcher of this phenomenon: “I couldn’t believe this was a phenomenon that others shared with me. I just thought I was nuts and so did those I told. … I first noticed street lights going off when I began taking college classes at [night] … Several times when I would turn into my street to come home, the streetlight outside our home went out. I didn’t say anything thinking something was wrong with it.

“Then it began going off when I would step out onto the porch. For a while, I thought it was coincidence, then I began noticing lights turning off in other places.” For example, one night when she was walking with a friend, four lights went off as they passed and turned back on after she was clear of them.

“It continues to happen to me, and I continue to try to make others believe me,” she wrote. Evans received many such testimonies from people of all walks of life. Evans also noted in her book “The SLI Effect,” that unlike some other paranormal phenomena, this one does not relate to any greater belief systems or carry with it the benefits or merit of other supernormal abilities. People thus have less reason to make it up.

Electrical engineer Bill Beaty explained his theory about streetlight interference (SLI), as the phenomenon is called, in an episode of William Shatner’s “Weird or What?”

Beaty thinks people who experience SLI, dubbed SLIders, may be walking electric generators. He spoke of the static electricity we conduct when we scuff our feet on carpet, for example. He said we could conduct electricity by stealing electrons from the air each time we inhale.

If inhaling makes us electrically charged, why doesn’t everyone have the same effect on streetlights? Beaty said there may be an as-of-yet undiscovered virus that could alter some people’s lungs, making them more likely to carry a charge.

He recognizes that his theory is weird.

“The vast, unstudied collection of weird things—some of those are real, and those are Nobel-Prize discoveries,” he said.

Gary M. Rowe, who has studied the phenomenon in the UK for 25 years, provides “a practical guide to investigating apparent Street Light Interference (SLI).”

He notes that an investigator must rule out causes for streetlights flickering or going out, such as faulty lights and lowered temperature (which can affect the lights’ operation).
