tRUMP on UFOs: “It’s Interesting.”

No it isn’t, not as far as our Cheese-toes in Chief believes. This is what I posted on Facebook in response to a post (by the delightful Peter Robbins) about tRUMP and his response to UFO disclosure, specifically Roswell:

He’s such a liar and good at covering up his own ignorance, that I don’t think he knows anything. Or, cares. He’s just saying that it’s “interesting” because he cannot admit that he doesn’t know anything. His ego won’t let him cop to being a skeptic or believer. So, it’s “interesting” He’ll use UFO disclosure only as far as it serves his own personal, warped agenda. If it means Reptilians exist and are our overlords, he’ll kiss their scaly asses. If it means there’s no such thing, or, that the ETs are truly liberals all for universal health care, he’ll deny the existence of UFOs and accuse the Pentagon of being “traitors.”

Unsolicited Advice: New to U.F.O. / Paranormal/Cryptid Stuff?

Well, there’s Google. Go for it. No shame, and yes, you’ll find yourself tumbling  down the rabbit hole, but, we all find ourselves there at some point or another. So just know that will happen.

Remember books? Library, bookstores, used and new. Problem is, often libraries have scant and skewed selections. For the most part, libraries don’t take such things seriously. And bookstores — the chain ones — are more about popular topics that sell, than offering books on the meat of the matter. Used bookstores are often better, simply depending on the opinions of the owner. I’ve found some great books in second hand bookstores.  Just depends.

Library sales, that’s another source, as Goodwill and other thrift stores. You have to look in all kinds of categories. St. Vinnie’s, at least in my area, really does a good job of placing books according to genre. Goodwill, not so much. Look in not only “paranormal” sections but science, religion, folklore…

eBay, Amazon, and Etsy. You never know.

Don’t give up.

And of course there’s social media, like Facebook, Twitter, etc. Search, lurk, read, ask. Don’t be afraid to ask. Just develop a bit of a thick skin, because there are some know it alls who won’t hesitate for a moment to tell you what’s good, what’s bad, and if you don’t take their advice, you’re a moron.

Blogs. Blogs might be — I hear tell — going out of style, but I will not accept that. Then again, I am the Queen of the Fortean Blogosphere. I have so many blogs, I forget about some of them for awhile. (Most recent, my UFO-Mary blog on blogspot.com) But there is a lot of great info and art and personal narratives and book lists and history that you could easily spend a whole day pursuing such information.

Sure, I have my own list of books that a person new to the field should read. But, while of course I think it’s an important list, it’s just my opinion. Point is, read what you can, when you can, ask questions, don’t entertain trolls (they still exist, even though the 1990’s are over) and think for yourself. Make up your own. mind. And know that your mind will, hopefully, change many times along the way, as you gather more information.

The really only important point is this: staying stuck on a theory is death. Be willing to change, to morph, to evolve. Don’t be afraid to question. And be brave enough to ignore the trolls and debunkers who will try anything — anything — to shut you up if you decide to share your own experience.

Right Wing Paranormal UFO Hosts and … the rest of us peons

Obviously, I will never be a guest on Coast to Coast, at least not with George Noory as host. Dense, doesn’t listen, interrupts, and, right wing. Oy.

I am bemused? Baffled? Intrigued, maybe, by the juxtatposition, or, contradiction, of right wingers who are also immerse in the paranormal, including UfOs. among other things, it amazes me that highly conservative people also buy into cover-ups and unethical, immoral and illegal acts by our own government. The very government they support and defend! Again, oy.

Like tonight’s C2C program :

First Half: A graduate of Yale Law School, Stewart Rhodes, is the founder and President of Oath Keepers, He’ll discuss the Bill of Rights and whether the lockdowns put in place for the prevention of the COVID-19 spread are a violation of constitutional rights.

Second Half: Dr. Jack Hunter is an anthropologist exploring the borderlands of consciousness, religion, and the paranormal. He’ll speak about such topics as spirit possession, Spiritualism, and physical mediumship, while posing questions about consciousness, and the nature of reality. [Coast to Coast.com]

How can one be all about the “nature of reality” (as if we know anything) as well as “borderlands of consciousness…” while upholding the thug tactics of an obvious mad man in power?

Nick Redfern’s Theory on Rendlesham

41OWTDf2l8L._SX323_BO1,204,203,200_

 

NIck Redfern was on Coast to Coast last night, discussing his latest book about the Rendlesham UFO case. I haven’t read the book yet, so this is not a review of the book. But by now, we all know the premise of the book: that Redfern believes what those witnesses saw that night was not an extraterrestrial UFO, but a man made object. Not just that, but an intentional mind control experiment, created by humans.

Blurb from the C2C site:

Detailing several elements which informed this hypothesis, Redfern revealed that there exists a decades-long history of “secret experiments and highly classified facilities all located less than 11 miles of Rendlesham Forest.” Additionally, he noted a now-declassified 1964 experiment that occurred in a different British forest which saw soldiers surreptitiously given LSD in order to gauge their response to the drug under those conditions. He coupled this with insights about projects aimed at developing “sophisticated holographic technology” which can produce imagery that looks incredibly real.

 

 

Years ago, when I first heard about this case, my first thought was: “mind control, government ops, etc.” It seemed obvious to me, and I didn’t even know about the proximity of installations nearby that played around with such things as mind control and LSD MK ULTRA type experiments. The plot thickens.

I’ve been saying for decades that much of the UFO phenomena, including abductions, missing time and other high weirdness are the scenarios created by humans. But here’s the thing: at the same time, those humans know damn well about the reality of “the others” out there, including various ETs and other non-human entities, terrestrial and non. Manipulating and tapping into these energies is what these humans do. (I include many crop circles in this category.)

Remember this book by by Helmut Lammer Ph.D. and Marion Lammer? It came out twenty years ago.  milab

Who knows what really happened at Rendlesham? I don’t, and, as I’ve said, I haven’t read Nick’s book yet. I’m not commenting on the book itself, but the idea of the Renlesham event being a manipulation by humans is very probable. Accepting this theory as possible, let alone true, does not negate the existence of the other.

But as George Knapp  (last night’s C2C host) remarked last night, it’s almost a lot scarier that our own would perform such experiments on us than  the existence of aliens. (I’ve been saying the same thing for years as well.)

 

I wrote this item on my Orange Orb Blog on blogger in 2017:

Nick Redfern; A Contactee or a Victim of Mind-Control? | Mysterious Universe

A Contactee or a Victim of Mind-Control? | Mysterious Universe: While some may disagree, Angelucci’s tale bears all the hallmarks of someone taking a long and winding trip of the definitively chemical kind and after taking a drink. Angelucci stated that the previously innocuous restaurant was now “transformed into a cozy retreat on some radiant star system.” Needless to say, this is not the experience that most people report upon taking a gulp or several of a drink in the average diner. “Added beauty and meaning” were suddenly given to all-things around Angelucci, as his radically-transformed mind begins to excitedly navigate previously uncharted realms. He heard captivating music that prompted him to comment: “No sound could be so enchanting unless played by some skilled musician.” (Redfern, Mysterious Universe)

Redfern suggests that some contactees, such as Angelucci, were not literally in contact with aliens from space, but victims of mind control by our own. I have no doubt. This doesn’t negate aliens, or non-human entities milling about, but I agree with Nick that mind control experiments were responsible for some of the UFO experiences reported. MILABS (military abductions) staged alien-UFO scenarios. This theory doesn’t make a lot of researchers happy. But, it’s worth considering.

And from 2011, also on Orange Orb on blogger:

Nick Redfern: Alien Abductions: Military Manipulation? | Mysterious Universe

Nick relates one woman’s abduction experiences, and her theories on MILABS and ufos/aliens: Alien Abductions: Military Manipulation? | Mysterious Universe. Writes Redfern:
There are those researchers and eye-witnesses (or perhaps “victims” would be a much better term) who believe that alien abductions have nothing to do with the activities of real-life extraterrestrials, but are, in reality, the result of clandestine work undertaken by the U.S. military.
So the theory goes, the military uses the alien abduction motif as a carefully-camouflaged cover to allow for the continued testing of new technologies, such as mind-altering and mind-controlling drugs, and sophisticated hypnotic techniques on unwitting and innocent citizens.
Is it possible that now, after all this time, the idea of MILABS is getting some serious consideration on a more open level among ufologists? I hope so. About time. I don’t know if MILABS explains abductions or not, if ET is still involved in some ways, or what, but I do know that the subject has been on the fringe of the fringe and many have not wanted to look at MILABS in a serious way. Maybe things are changing. Leah Haley’s recent statements concerning her own abduction experiences have startled a few into rethinking things…
_______

I think UFO researchers — those that reject or just don’t go there – need to consider in a serious way, that in many cases, humans are unethically, illegally and cruelly involved in putting their sisters and brothers through all kinds of hell (see also Greg Bishop’s Project Beta)  in the guise of the whole UFO/alien theme.

Live and Let Die

The virus…what to say? I take it seriously, this is nothing to take casually.  Aside from the virus itself, there is all the surreal and truly insane culture around the virus. I wear the masks and gloves and practice social distancing and leave the house only for things like groceries. (After my bout with pneumonia in the fall I am very careful.)

The bozo-nazis who storm state capitols while armed (and yet, often, masked) are unfortunately, yet understandably, thrown into the conspiracy crazy pot. Yet there is the obvious reality: the virus is intentional, and the manipulations by many in power are also intentional. The shadowy forces never tire. They are working feverishly away at keeping the virus culture alive. All the anxiety, frustrations, money problems, intense emotions, political and religious nonsense is kept alive by these forces. Conspiracy? Yes. So what. As the saying goes, just because it’s a conspiracy doesn’t make it not true.

It’s in your face time. rTrump visits a mask making factory — not wearing a mask, though  he is wearing goggles for some reason — while, get this, Live and Let Die plays in the background. Just one of many obvious we’re laughing at you, Jack, moments in the current global madness.

 

New Corvid Cartoons

Two new “attack of the Corvids” cartoons/drawings. As you can see, this is what social-distancing-isolation does to a person. I’ve even resorted to doing housework. So you know it’s bad.

Expressing the Virus: Pen and Ink

All this time off. By the way, I am very grateful for all those who continue to work — health care workers, fire fighters and police, grocery store clerks, etc.

Social isolation, distancing. Staying home as much as possible. Wearing a mask when I do go out. I know — it “doesn’t do any good.” They say. But first of all, allergies. Living in the ‘Valley of Death’ (Oregon’s Willamette Valley) allergies are a major source of discomfort, and worse, for many of us. Aside from that, much to my surprise, wearing a mask makes me feel better. No doubt purely psychological, but so what. You do you, I’ll do me. And I know they say wearing a mask doesn’t do any good, but what if someone sneezes or coughs all over me — isn’t a mask some sort of protection? A teeny bit?

Anyway. with this time off  (and how goddamn lucky are some of us who can stay home and not worry too much about money? I am so damn grateful. It’s not much but it’s something. Better than those who are truly struggling.)

Since our studio has been trashed due to heavy storms — it’s absolutely unusable — I haven’t painted in some time, or really done any artwork. This social isolation distancing had me bringing out the inks and pens and doing some drawings. I just started without thinking about it, but quickly realized all my little drawings had the same theme: The Virus. My husband said to me “You’re expressing out the virus. A magikal act.” True.

So here they are, all done within the past two days. I know, I could be doing something more practical, like weeding the yard, etc.

Virus Presents its Reptilian Head

Subconscious global virus fears have seeped in.

I had a dream that I thought was real, then realized at some point I was dreaming. Until, in the dream, I was explaining the dream to my husband — complete with a physical demonstration — thinking that that was real, until, I realized I was still dreaming. Layers upon layers.

I hear sounds of animals  (I assume they are animals, cats maybe, raccoons) fighting in the yard next door. Abruptly, the sounds stop, and I hear just one sound: the crunching of leaves and gravel as a seven-foot, bi-pedal creature walks into our backyard. 

I don’t know how I know the creature is seven feet tall, but I do. The nature of dreams. This creature is somewhat reptilian-is. Highly intelligent, and nasty. This thing claws at our bedroom window,trying to get in. I’m terrified. Try to wake up my husband but he’s out. All this time, I think this is really happening. Not a dream.

I hear the creature walking around to our other bedroom window. I get out of bed, pound the walls with my fist and shout “GO AWAY!!! GO AWAY!!! WE DO NOT WANT YOU HERE!!!” 

There’s a moment where I am frightened because I know. — I can see it in my mind — that it’s thinking. Deciding whether to burst in or leave.

reptiliancover.jpg It leaves.

Later, I am explaining this dream to my husband. I show h

im how the creature walked, using my fingers to walk across the table. (As if he doesn’t know a bi-pedal creature would walk.) I think: thank god that dream nightmare is over.

Then I realize I’m still dreaming.

Like most of us, I assume, the coronavirus has shifted things within in a deep way. I’m confused, operating in a state of surreal acceptance. I want to be safe and responsible but  am not sure what to do at times. I know what not to do – – I’m not an idiot. Am I scared? Yes, sometimes. I don’t want to feed into it. I’m not hoarding toilet paper for instance.

So the fears and anxiety, the uncertainty, is always there.

 

And I know I am setting myself up for the wrath of logical intelligent fellow saucer heads, Forteans and the like to be flung at me  but I can’t help there is more behind this. Much more, including conspiracy and manipulations and even the interaction with an other.

But none of that really matters. Because this is here, it’s real, and it’s affecting all of us at all levels of our existence. Children at home, unsupervised, people out of work wondering how they’re going to pay their bills, . . . the fallout is immense.

My little dream, exposing layers of reality (I’m dreaming, I’m awake, it’s real, oh, I’m still dreaming) presenting a Reptilian Alien monster as an unwelcome and nasty intruder. It did go away however when I confronted it. So maybe this dream was a reminder that I am responsible for myself and to calm down. Not to be cavalier about things, but, find that balance between acceptance of this new reality while remaining sane.
