The New York Times has stated we are trying to back-engineer UFO technology

The New York Times has stated that recovered metals from UFOs are being "stored" in special buildings built by Robert Bigelow. Then C.I.A. insider Hal Puthoff implies they are trying to "figure out" what this stuff is. It is written out plainly.

Lemme say this nice an clear:

This is an open admission of 
back-engineering technology from recovered UFOs.
excerpt from the New York Times, Dec 16 2017

Contracts obtained by The Times show a congressional appropriation of just under $22 million beginning in late 2008 through 2011. The money was used for management of the program, research and assessments of the threat posed by the objects.

The funding went to Mr. Bigelow’s company, Bigelow Aerospace, which hired subcontractors and solicited research for the program.

Under Mr. Bigelow’s direction, the company modified buildings in Las Vegas for the storage of metal alloys and other materials that Mr. Elizondo and program contractors said had been recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena. Researchers also studied people who said they had experienced physical effects from encounters with the objects and examined them for any physiological changes....

“We’re sort of in the position of what would happen if you gave Leonardo da Vinci a garage-door opener,” said Harold E. Puthoff, an engineer who has conducted research on extrasensory perception for the C.I.A. and later worked as a contractor for the program. “First of all, he’d try to figure out what is this plastic stuff. He wouldn’t know anything about the electromagnetic signals involved or its function.”

Peter Levenda declares Disclosure

Tom Delonge, Peter Levenda, John Podesta and two unknown men to the right. 
I think this photo was taken during a video shoot for a documentary project.

The text below is from author Peter Levenda. It was posted on Facebook early in the morning on December 17 2017. He is referencing the recent articles in mainstream press about UFOs (see HERE)

I am not as optimistic as Peter is in his statement. I am certain there is a hidden agenda behind these new admissions. I'm feeling cynical about all this, and I ain't gettin' my party hat on for the dawning of a new age—not quite yet.

Peter has worked with Tom Delonge in his recent publishing efforts.

From Peter Levenda:

By now most of you will have learned about the articles that have been appearing in the New York Times, the Washington Post, Politico, USA Today, and elsewhere in the US mainstream press as well as the world’s press that the Pentagon has released film footage of UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) otherwise known as UFOs. This was done exclusively through To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science (TTSAAS), the project started by Tom DeLonge and with which I have been involved – via Sekret Machines – since 2015.

The revelations that the Department of Defense had a project, funded by a black budget, to investigate UFOs during the period 2007-2012 will surely come as a surprise to some critics who believed that all that was over with Project Blue Book’s termination in 1970. It will not come as a shock to many who believed this was happening all along, of course. What is surprising, however, is that this is confirmation of what had only been suspected. We no longer have to speculate about black budgets funding UFO research: it has been confirmed. We no longer have to speculate about top secret film footage of UFOs taken by the military (and in recent years, no less): this, too, has been confirmed. Even further, we no longer have to speculate that elements of the US Government have been aware of this for years.

If you were waiting for Disclosure, guess what: it happened.

Your next question may be: why all the secrecy up to now? The US Senator who jump-started this particular project, Harry Reid, made it clear: it was a question of national security. We’ve known that all along, but until now no one in a position of authority has come out to tell us that so bluntly. (At least, not outside of Hollywood movies.)

But it seems to me the Pentagon project could only go so far in answering all of our many questions about UFOs. I believe what is required now is a more concerted effort by individuals from all branches of learning: in both the “hard” and the “soft” sciences, to be sure, but also in terms of the arts, for the imaginative “thinking outside the box” quality that artists, musicians, and writers bring to the table. (Think of Arthur C. Clarke and Philip K. Dick, for example.) For this effort to succeed, we need participation by everyone: every field of human endeavor, every race, every ethnicity, every religion (agnostics and atheists as well), every gender, every age, every political persuasion. No one has a monopoly on truth; everyone has a piece of the puzzle. We are all blind men with the UFO elephant in the room, and we can only know this particular elephant by pooling all of our impressions, all of our resources.

So, what do we know?

The US government has been studying the Phenomenon in secret for years. It was funded by a black budget. It was a project of which most people in the Pentagon were not aware, it was that secret. And, as Harry Reid stated, it was about science as well as national security. So who do we have working with us in Tom’s project so far? Scientists and national security experts.

We know that – however it happened, whatever machinations behind the scenes took place to make sure it happened – this is government disclosure. It may not be full disclosure, but as we used to say in Latin class: ovum ruptum est. The egg is broken. There’s no going back.

Congratulations! Just think: You were alive to see it happen. It’s a bittersweet achievement, however, when I think of all those who believed but who are no longer around to share the experience with us. I am thinking especially right now of Jim Marrs, who would have loved to have been here for this. This Negra Modelo is for you, Jim! Salud!

Watch this space.

The New York Times ran two separate stories about UFOs

Today the New York Times ran two separate stories about UFOs. The by-lines for both articles lists three writers, Helene Cooper, Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal.

One article details a sighting by a Navy pilot above the Pacific west of San Diego. The other article states that the Pentagon had a program that investigated reports of unidentified flying objectswhich was run by military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo. Elizondo is now part of the To The Stars team fronted by pop star Tom DeLonge.

The former Navy pilot, David Fravor, said he was “pretty weirded out” by this unexplained episode in 2004 while staging off the aircraft carrier Nimitz. This seems to be the same event that was discussed as part of the October 10 announcement by Tom DeLonge and his team of government insiders.

Both articles are very dry and written without any “giggle” factor. Were these articles the result of dogged investigative reporters rolling up their sleeves to uncover a good story? Or, were they orchestrated by elements within the government for some long term purpose?

I do not know, but it’s my sense is that for these stories to be covered in the paper of record, powers within the Pentagon must have given their okay.

Both articles link video footage of something disc shaped filmed from what seems to be a military aircraft. Interesting, but it doesn't show much beyond an oval blob. This is not a smoking gun. Both articles linked below:

And here is a post about the New York Times covering UFOs in an article by Ralph Blumenthal from April of 2017.

All the articles above are recommended reading. Below is a short video clip from Tom DeLonge's media company.

owl image in blood

Blood stain mimics the cover of the book

Peter Schenk
I met Peter Schenk a bit over a month ago at a local retreat center. I was helping my partner Andrea who was performing a Sound Bath during a weekend retreat. Peter was one of the speakers and while talking with Andrea she mentioned my owl research.

He had never heard of any connection between owls and UFOs, and he suddenly remembered he had seen an owl the night he had a missing time event. He told me about that while walking out to his mailbox at night he saw a massive white owl. He said, “It didn’t look artificial but it didn’t seem real.” Later that same night he remembers being taken from his bed, and returned with no memory of what happened.

Peter is working as a psychic intuitive and healer, and he says he can offer insights into other peoples experiences, but cannot figure out what happened in those hours. He was also surprised that he’d completely forgotten that he’d seen that owl, the memory resurfaced when Andrea mentioned my research. Also of note, the owl sighting happened at the mailbox, a source of receiving messages. I mailed Peter a book a few days after we met.

close-up of the blood stain
Yesterday morning I got a photo showing a blood stain on the side of my book The Messengers.

Peter had cut his finger the day the book arrived. He had put a band-aid on the cut, but it was still bleeding enough that he got some blood on the book. It wasn’t until yesterday that he realized the small spot of blood looked curiously like an owl, specifically the owl on the cover of the book.

I am at the point now where this kind of thing should be pretty normal, but this one packed a whammy. I mean, the blood of a psychic healer making a tiny owl on my book?

His website describes Peter as a spiritual visionary who left a successful career as a computer programmer for one of the world’s largest banks to fulfill his mission to heal the world.

Not sure what this really means, but this blog has just topped two million page views. The first post was almost nine years ago, back in March of 2009.

Below is a listing of the top-ten all time highest viewed posts. Curious that Tiny Dots in a Triangle on My Left Arm is far and away the most viewed post. What it tells me is that a lot fo people are doing a Google search about their own odd scars.

two years ago today

Looking back and looking forward

The Messengers was published on this day in 2015. The companion book should be out soon—hopefully around the New Year.

The first book has sold quite well given the small market for UFO related books. I checked this morning and it was noted as number 12 in Amazon sales ranking for UFO books on Kindle. 

You can read Richard Dolan's foreword to the 2015 book HERE.
  Kindle and Amazon sales linked HERE   
That said, please do what you can to support your hometown bookstore. They can easily order it and then call you when it arrives. They usually get free shipping and can sometimes offer a low price. If you give them the number (below), it makes it a little easier to find the book.

an owl and a line of longitude

Due out soon!
I am working to finalize the follow up book about owls. There is one short segment I pulled out during the editing. I thought it was interesting, but it just messed with the flow of the overall chapter. The story deals with a woman Brenda who slept at her sister's house, and that night is filled with odd events. The next day, she saw a huge owl out the back window. This happened in Michigan not far from where I grew up.

Below is the text that's been nixed from the chapter.
What I am sharing next might seem vague, but it feels somehow important to me. I grew up in Southfield Michigan, not too far from where Brenda saw the owl on the back porch. I measured the distance between her sister’s house and my boyhood home at just a little over 17 miles.

I felt a powerful need to check the longitude of both Brenda's sister’s house and the site of my 1974 missing time event, down at the other end of the block from my old house. These longitudinal numbers are noted in degrees, minutes, and seconds. I found the degrees and minutes of longitude matched, but the seconds were off by about quarter of a mile. If you’re not familiar with map jargon, this basically means that these two sites line up almost perfectly north south.

This map stuff was weird for me. I don’t understand why, but something compelled me to check those positions. This wasn’t just an idle curiosity—I was lost for a full day feverishly checking (and re-checking) these coordinates. That Brenda’s owl experience “lines up” on the map with my missing time event as a boy seems significant, but my obsession to look seems like a deeper clue. Again, I can’t help but see myself connected to these other events.

Here’s another tidbit of map weirdness. The line of longitude (in decimal degrees) for my old cabin in Idaho was -111.111, a tidy six ones in a row. Once you get to that third digit to the right of the decimal point, at that latitude each number measures about 200 feet on the earth.
This segment ties into other map weirdness— Byron North Dakota and events in southern Utah.

Steven Spielberg's E.T. and owls

I watched Steven Spielberg's E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial for the second time last night. The only other time I'd seen it was in the theater back in 1982, thirty-five years ago. It was interesting to see it again, especially in light of all the fawning over Stranger Things.

I remember I didn’t really like it much at the time. I was 20 years old, had already dropped out of NYU film school, and my tastes in cinema were more along the lines of John Ford and Michelangelo Antonioni.

But one thing caught my eye, a sequence that involved an owl!
Giant space mushrooms!
That number again.
The Green Man on the tree trunk sighs as the camera passes
Early on in the film, the camera is slowly panning around the drippy wet interior of the UFO. It was a kind of terrarium setting where the little ETs were collecting plant samples. It opens on big mushrooms (did Terence McKenna notice this?) and then it passes by the trunk of a tree with the archetypal face of The Green Man

The Green Man shown in this sequence is a sort of puppet, and it moves its lips as if sighing. This happens at exactly the 3:33 time-count.
owls and aliens!
Then there is a cut to the outside and we see a bunch of cuddly ETs wobbling around in the forest in front of the craft. We hear the hooting of a great horned owl and all the little beings stop—it's momentarily silent—then all their heart chakras glow red. This is punctuated by the John Williams music making a little crescendo to highlight the moment.
So we have (at the time) the highest grossing movie in the history of film, with an overt owl and UFO reference.
Plus, there’s an appearance of the Green Man! This is a pre-Christian nature deity associated with the forest. His face made up of leaves and bark, and can be found in medieval churches all across Europe. In Celtic lore he represents the coming of spring, and is often portrayed with acorns.

The Green Man is centered in the frame at 3:33, and the owl hoots seven seconds later. The number 3:33 shows up repeatedly in new-age circles, as well as the UFO abduction lore.

There is another great horned owl hooting later in the film. It can be heard just as ET and Elliott rig up the distress beacon made of toys. This is the communication machine used for, "ET phone home.” The owl shows up (perhaps) to represent The Messenger.

I'm stayin' out of this one...

The word UFO is never mentioned in a sizzle reel about UFOs

Pop music celebrity Tom DeLonge stood on stage this morning and made a big announcement. Behind him were five gray haired men who've all held positions in the government, military, CIA and aerospace industry. All people who can keep a secret and have most probably sewn the seeds of disinformation. It was a big talk about UFOs where the words "abduction" and "experiencer" were never uttered.

Leslie Kean wrote about today's event in the Huffington Post. She's not one to exaggerate, so read that and ignore me. Robbie Graham will write about this too, read what he says. I suspect he'll be a bit more bold than Leslie.

I'm stayin' out of this one. Here's my only comment: I don't expect much and I sense that any information emerging from all this will be managed for some deeper agenda.

The end.

The Dark Night of the Soul

Seriah asked me to join him on Where Did The Road Go to talk about depression. I said yes without hesitation. Over the years I’ve worked to be open about my experiences with clinical depression. Like UFOs, this is a topic that suffers from a social stigma. The only way to break that stigma is to talk about it.

We were joined by Red Pill Junkie in a discussion on The Dark Night of the Soul. I am honored to have shared this time with these comrades and friends.

Cynthia Crawford had passed on

The ET Sculptor
I am sad to say that artist and experiencer Cynthia Crawford has died. She was a wonderful friend to me when I needed support. I am honored to have known her. We did an interview with her back in 2010. She was a radiant soul and will be missed.

Jean Walker tells her story in Family Secrets

Author and experiencer Jean Walker

Family Secrets is the true account of the strange paranormal events experienced by Jean Walker and her family. Jean, a retired science teacher and UFO investigator, has now bravely come forward to share her strange, often frightening, sometimes delightful, yet unexplainable encounters. These include everything from aliens, UFOs, portals, fairies, and Bigfoot.

This is a nice interview, but she shares a lot more in the book.

I recommend this short book, available HERE

Here is a funny little synchronicity, she tells an interesting owl story in her book, then mentions me by name and references my owl book—all on page 123! Anyone who has followed my work will know that I put a special emphasis on the number 123.

And a special thanks to UFO HUB for this beautifuly produced interview.

Brendan Ring and owls

author and mystic, Brendan Ring

The Messengers features several powerful owl accounts from Brendan Ring. He was immersed in his Shamanic apprenticeship and practice while I was working on my book, and he was generous with his experiences. He has recently published his own book titled A Shamanic Kundalini Awakening.

Brendan is an Irish musician, visionary and mystic. I have not read the book in its entirety, but merely skimmed around. It is a delight to get a more Celtic set of insights as Brendan describes his journey. I can relate to his voice.

Here is a passage from the book that cleanly sums up the owl and UFO connection. That this account comes from a shamanic practitioner makes it all the more resonant—at least to me.
One night I dreamed I was standing with a white owl, high on a hill, overlooking a valley. Shortly after this, a tawny owl and a barn owl came together in a dream, the barn owl nuzzled my hand. The following night I awoke into a vision of the oak tree that stands in our field. Its leaves and branches were enveloping me, pulling at me urgently. I had the sense it wanted me to go outside, and even though it was about four o’clock in the morning, I pulled myself out of bed and answered the call. Outside, owls were calling, Orion was above me, and to the left, a planet shone as bright as a moon. I had only a few seconds to take in the glory of this, when what I’d thought was a star, flew upwards across the sky with a snake-like movement. I have no doubt that this was a UFO and that the tree had called me out to see it.   
From my own perspective however, it is the shaman and the tree that are intrinsically connected. The shaman is in essence the human embodiment of the tree, the shaman’s connection is very much to the Earth, and although I may look in wonder to the stars, I know that here, is home.
Excerpt from A Shamanic Kundalini Awakening by Brendan Ring. Brendan's site is linked HERE. And here's a link to the book on Amazon.

Brendan's first book, published in 2016
Brendan has been playing music since he was eleven years of age. He learned first from his grand-father and father, who came from Sliabh Luachra, a region of Ireland famous for its traditional music.

Brendan is an All Ireland champion piper and holds a Master Degree in Music from University College Cork. A virtuoso on the Uilleann pipes, he is also one of only a handful of people involved in bringing back to life, the Clairseach (historical Irish harp). He is one of the only musicians in the world (if not the only one) to play both those iconic Irish instruments. His low whistle playing is cited, by many players, as a ground breaking influence.

Jim Marrs has died

Jim Marrs
1943 - 2017

Author and researcher Jim Marrs died today. This was one profoundly charismatic guy—a lost breed. The world is a less dynamic place without him.

I walked into the hotel bar of a UFO conference in Tempe Arizona and saw Jim sitting alone at a table off in a corner. This was back in 2007, and I was nervous to do what I did next. I walked over and asked if I could join him. He smiled and said, “If you buy me a beer you sure can!” I asked what he was having, and he said Dos Equis. I went to the bar, ordered two of them and when I turned around I saw Anne and Whitley Strieber had joined him. I spent the next few hours saying very little and listening intently.

I had lunch with Jim a few years later at another conference, this time in Laughlin Nevada. I was waiting in line to get into the casino diner, and he was standing next to me with two women—one was researcher Paola Harris and the other was an investigator working on a book. We all stood together making small talk and he asked me to join them.

The one woman was researching a case that involved a murder she suspected was somehow connected to a military base. Jim was playing the role of mentor, offering his insights on how to proceed, what to look for, what to ask, what not to ask, and how to be careful. I was fascinated to sit and listen.

Jim cut his teeth in newspaper reporting in a bygone era of journalism. This was a writer who knew how to roll up his sleeves and get something done—and done well.
This is a 20-year old Jim Marrs dancing on stage at Jack Ruby's Carousel Club in Dallas Texas.  The photo was taken in October of 1963, a month before the Kennedy assassination.

But more than anything Jim exuded a folksy charisma. If he shared a beer with a witness at a bar, they would certainly fall under his spell. I can imagine the most tight-lipped government insider giving up juicy tidbits just because Jim was so disarming. He was a joy to be near.

I read Crossfire shortly after seeing Oliver Stone’s movie JFK. To say it blew me away would barely express the impact that book had on me.

Jim wrote about the JFK assassination, UFOs, 9-11, remote viewing, secret societies and more. He wrote a fictional book titled The Sisterhood of the Rose. A thriller set in during WWII. He said, “The problem with writing fiction is that it has to make sense!”

He also wrote a comic book titled Oswald’s Confession that fit the puzzle pieces together to help me understand what might have happened. This little gem is wonderful.

I am blessed to have know this amazing man.


Here's an interview I did with Jim back in 2013.

Yaphet Kotto tells of lifelong alien contact

American actor Yaphet Kotto
The actor Yaphet Kotto is 77 years old. He portrayed the main villain Mr. Big in the James Bond movie Live and Let Die (1973). He was a crew member in Alien (1979) and later worked with Robert De Niro in the comedy thriller Midnight Run (1988).

Kotto recently gave an interview where he talked about his UFO experiences. He said, "I've never talked to anyone about it man, this is the first time… I’ve only told my wife, my rabbi, and a psychologist. This is the first time I'm talking about it.”

He describes a list of events, some from when he was a young boy. What he shares will be familiar to anyone who had looked into the the contact experience. Here's an excerpt:
I went through my youth, however, not knowing what I was experiencing, therefore, I didn't talk about it. I would just experience something and file it away until something larger happened. This is the thing other UFO witnesses don't talk about. Every time I moved into a house, above it at some point, there would be a circle of what looked like smoke. I'd wonder where it came from because it sure as hell didn't look like clouds. Those sightings continued for a good ten to fifteen years. I've also had time loss. I have a big loss of time between some of these moments, and I'd often wonder if I was taken.
