Overlooked Aspects of the Alien Presence (scroll down til you get to the January 10th entry)

Synopsis of the Alien Master Plan

John Keel – Operation Trojan Horse.pdf – Link to PDF copy of the extremely hard to come by and highly recommended “Operation Trojan Horse” by the late John Keel. I put this book on a very short list of impressive UFO research, not only for the thousands of historical records Mr. Keel sifted through in his research (most of which would probably have been lost and forgotten had it not been for his work in digging them up) along with his firsthand experience and investigative research, and the hundreds of interviews he’s conducted with people over the years, but also for the patterns that he spotted in the chaos………and the conclusions he draws from them, of which not very many other people were saying at that time, let alone now. It’s in my opinion that UFO researchers are indebted to Mr. Keel’s efforts.


Visitors from Time – The Secret of the UFOs- by Marc Davenport. Interesting, well thought out and presented book where the author tries to tie together all the seemingly separate phenomenon often noted during UFO sightings and close encounters. Davenport postulates that they can all be explained if one takes into account the idea that these things are not flying here from other planets, but rather, are maneuvering through time, and have some sort of time warping field surrounding their craft. The time warping field can account for everything from the way they cycle through a rainbow of colors, to the way they can pull high speed and right angle maneuvers that are impossible with our own technology and which no human could endure. Among the many other idiosyncracies of UFOs. As somebody on Amazon noted, it’s a must-have book for all serious UFO enthusiasts. I’ve learned a lot by reading it, things I hadn’t previously known about UFO encounters.

Missing: 411 – The CanAm Missing Project   Prior to reading the “Missing: 411” series of non-fiction books I truly believed that the wilderness was the last safe place for people. Little did I know you’re probably safer in the urban jungle of any major city. O.o It’s a bit disheartening to realize that. The “Missing: 411” books are a compilation of missing person’s cases throughout North America that fit a particular criteria, involving people who have disappeared without a trace under mysterious, unexplainable circumstances in the wilderness. Most either turn up dead or are never found at all, and the ones that are found alive often times can not provide any real details about what exactly happened to them…or the bits and pieces they do convey are stranger than fiction. The books are compilations of all the known facts surrounding each person’s disappearance, and is a testament to the thousands of hours of dedicated research put in by author and former police officer David Paulides and his team. They have combed through countless archives, personally interviewed surviving family members of some of the missing/deceased, FOIA’d everybody they could possibly FOIA and visited many of the sites where people have disappeared in order to get a better understanding of the lay of the land. The case histories are broken up into several books since there were too many cases to fit into one.

What makes these books stand out is that David Paulides took what he learned from his 30 years in law enforcement and applied it to his research, so the end result is that every case is presented as “just facts.” Straight up reporting of all known details, in an obsessively thorough, police report style. And he has no biases or agendas, no pet theories that he’s trying to cherry pick evidence to fit. It doesn’t matter how bizarre something sounds – if that’s what’s being reported by a witness/victim, then that’s what’s being reported. Mainstream media and so-called journalism doesn’t even come close to touching the level of unbiased neutrality to be found in these books. No theories are provided by Paulides as to what the cause could be in each case – that’s left up to the readers to decide.

Over and over you see the same repeating – and astounding – details in the case histories presented. People, but often small children, who turn up either dead or alive many miles from where they originated over extremely rough terrain, mountains and bodies of water that there is simply no way they could have traversed in the short time span between when they disappeared and when their bodies were found. And often times with extreme inclement weather on top of it, which should have impeded or outright halted any sort of foot travel, making it that much more unbelievable. Inclement weather (as in sudden flood-level rains, or huge snowstorms) that “coincidentally” hit out of nowhere the second the person goes missing, disrupting any search efforts; trained bloodhounds either abruptly losing a trail, indicating the person seemed to just vanish into thin air at that point, or being unable to pick up any scent/trail at all; Dead and alive victims turning up very close to where they disappeared and in an area that had already been repeatedly searched by hundreds of volunteers on the ground and often by planes and helicopters from the air, as if their bodies were deliberately put there to be found after the fact; Children turning up alive in the craziest of locations, like on a rock in the middle of a raging creek, or thousands of feet up a mountain situated on a ledge; bodies, both dead or alive found 20 feet up in trees and missing most clothing; the way in which so many of the dead and alive children are found with one shoe missing; dead bodies all over North America repeatedly found on the ground in the same face in the dirt/splayed limbs position; the inordinate number of people who go missing while out berry picking, or dead bodies that are found within berry bushes; the way in which so many of the people who have gone missing/abducted were people with cognitive impairment issues/autistic, deaf, mute, physically disabled, elderly or too young to speak, as if they were targeted for that reason for being easy prey (and in the case of mutes, toddlers and the cognitively impaired, being unable convey what happened to them if found); And being that in many cases the cognitive or physical disability wasn’t obvious/visible makes it that much more astounding about how “stuff” could have known it when selecting them specifically to take out of everybody around them; Both alive children and adult victims found in an incoherent and scared/shocked state, unable to speak; alive victims found after many days who had no idea what happened or where they were, some even reporting that they “suddenly didn’t recognize their surroundings” (i.e., the scenery was completely different, and when factoring in all the other details of their cases, including distorted time, seems to indicate an interdimensional realm shift); children who were in their yards playing (usually with their pets) one second and gone literally the next, or disappearing from their homes in the middle of the night with no trace; people repeatedly disappearing while in the back of the line of a hiking group or while walking ahead on a trail where family/friends/group members were nearby but nobody heard or saw a thing; the phenomenon where people seem compelled to break from a group that they’re in and either “go back home” or “go back to the car” or “go ahead on the trail” (which indicates mind influencing) and are never seen again, which ties into the way in which so many kids who go missing were in yards that bordered the woods and seemed to have been lured away into the woods by some force. Their dogs are almost always left alive and return home on their own while the kids either turn up dead or are never seen again. In many instances the dogs seem traumatized or reluctant to return into the woods. Then there’s the way that an inordinate number of disappearances take place in locals that have the word “devil” and other such telling words in their name. Obviously people from long ago had their reasons when giving names to certain areas.

It just goes on and on, and these repeating scenarios aren’t even the half of it. There’s so much more mind boggling things to be found in these books, including the way in which the National Park System has so often stymied any attempts for the author to procure (via FOIA requests) the cases files, or even the most basic of information on the missing who have disappeared on National Park Service land. It’s to the point where it becomes quite clear when you read his account of his various exchanges with Park Service employees that they definitely know something, but are refusing to divulge the information despite being legally obligated to do so. In one particular case a Park Service employee literally taunted David Paulides about the fact he would never receive a shred of information about the missing person in question.

The CanAm Missing Project website would lead one to conclude that the author and his team have determined that Big Foot/Sasquatch is the culprit, but as mentioned the “Missing: 411” books offer no theories as to who or what is behind the anomalous disappearances, and each case is presented as “just facts.” My conclusion at this point as I finish up the third book is that there are multiple sources for these disappearances, and they clearly have very different agendas. Some malevolent, others trickster, others neutral/benign and maybe outright curious. There’s definitely an interdimensional component going on – and that applies to “Bigfoot” as well, which various researchers have already concluded. It’s undisputable once you read enough case histories that no one single source could be responsible for the variety of circumstances presented. Some actually do seem to be “Bigfoot” related, especially any case where children (or even adults) have reported “large bears” that were carrying a child off. Small children don’t yet understand that bears can’t “carry them” or “feed them berries” or lay them down in a bed made of woven grass and leaves, and for the adults witnessing the “large bear” running off with their child, or with a child slung over its shoulder in the distance it’s all happening so fast that their minds can’t logically compute what they’re actually looking at. The brain fills in details with the only thing it understands. Large black/brown hairy thing in the woods = bear?? Right?? Other cases however involve people quite literally disappearing into thin air, in areas that are known for heavy UFO activity/mysterious lights/vortexes and portals/high strangeness, so there seems to be other forces at work in those instances. And there are accounts, mostly coming from the few children who have managed to make it back alive, involving descriptions of either “bad men” or just “people,” the latter of whom always seem to bring them to “houses” where they were fed and kept safe and warm….in rural, rugged areas where there isn’t a house for miles around (my theory – this is something interdimensional); others involving “big bears” or “large dogs” as mentioned, while still others involve “little people.” And that’s not even factoring in the couple of cases that fit the criteria but take place in/on the water.

These are seriously the most interesting books I’ve read in probably several decades, nothing else has come close to provoking so much mystery, intrigue, questions, ponderings and conversation. But beware as well if you read them, because they are extremely depressing as most cases don’t have a happy ending or resolution, and most seem to involve small children. To buy the books click on this link that goes straight to the author’s website. Unscrupulous people are trying to sell these books on Amazon, eBay, etc. jacked up to $200+ each in some cases, which is ludicrous, so just stick with the author’s website. Not only is it cheaper, but you’re directly supporting the author.

Silent Invasion – Ellen Crystall, Ph.D. The UFO invasion of the Pine Bush/Hudson Valley area of New York back in the 1980s. I was left a bit dumbfounded after reading this book, wondering how this went relatively unnoticed and unreported within the mainstream??? UFOs were out there practically every night, skimming over treetops and people’s houses….landing in fields…..and the world in general just looked the other way?? (with the exception of one featured spot on “PM Magazine” where the whole thing was treated like a joke.) Not Ellen Crystall though, she was out giving these things chase on the roads and in the fields, taking pictures, rounding up whoever she could get to go out chasing with her, and even reported that these beings were involved in some sort of digging underground in the middle of the night. Possibly mining for certain elements, as that area contains rare elements not found anywhere else, or else just general underground base/tunnel activity. This is a must-read for anybody who’s interested in UFO-ology. My favorite chapter was “The Human Factor,” chapter 14.

Extra-Terrestrial Friends and Foes – George C. Andrews. The gist of the book is revealing that we’re being lied to by the government about the true nature of the alien presence in the world, while covering a wide assortment of subjects relating to alien lore: The hybrid breeding program, the increase in missing children in certain countries, underground bases, the secret treaty-gone-awry between the U.S. government and the “Grays” and whoever their masters are, the various assortment of aliens that have been visiting Earth and the different agendas, the demonic/interdimensional possibly alien influence on Adolf Hitler, the supposed Virgin Mary sightings and the evidence that they are holographically projected images originating from UFOs, disinformation authors and government-sponsored disinformation, including the hoaky CIA-produced 1988 document “UFO Coverup? – LIVE!”, crop circles, indications of ET manipulation in human affairs contained within history and mythology, the extent of the alien cover up and people who are “suicided” when they get too close to things, and lots more, including excerpts from other works and guest contributions from various researchers and authors.

The Love Bite – Alien Interference in Human Love Relationships – Eve Lorgen Until reading Eve Lorgen’s work in 2001 I had never considered the possibility that love relationships could be manipulated to serve something else’s purpose. After reading through her website I came away realizing that a couple of my past relationships have the “checklist” of love-bite traits – instant and intense “burning the candle at both ends” type of love affair connection, full of psychic woo-woo mind reading, and then abruptly shutting off overnight, either on my end, or with the guy in question – and they definitely seemed to be artificially set up in the ways in which we would come together. Pandora’s Box warning though ;) : Once you start to question the nature of your personal relationships in terms of being artificially manipulated then the rest of your life has to be analyzed. A must-read for all abductees, whether “alien” or MILAB.

The Threat – The Secret Agenda. David Jacobs, Ph.D. Good counterbalance to the new age love ‘n light pro-alien propaganda, looking at the insidious side to the hybrid breeding program and what the aliens may really be here for. See also this piece by David Jacobs in Issue #1 of JAR Magazine called “A Picture We May Not Wish to Gaze Upon.”

MILABS OperationsJames Bartley. Excellent article that covers many aspects of MILABS not being discussed anywhere else. Mr. Bartley aptly covers everything from “Beam me up” transport technology to the fact that the secret factions have the ability to manipulate time and space. He also gets into off-planetary operations, frequency control of targets, both the physical and “astral ops,” physical abductions versus virtual reality/dream time programming, end-times apocalyptic programming, the phenomenon of both preferential and abusive treatment of targets, the differences between MILABS and Monarchs, and much more. A must-read that I’m very enthusiastic about! Click here for the rest of James Bartley’s writings. And here’s a link to James’ website, The Cosmic Switchboard.

MILABS – Military Mind Control and Alien AbductionsDr. Helmut Lammer and Marion Lammer. Having never heard of the idea of the military/government taking and messing with people, I was stuck in “unanswered question limbo” back during 2002…..until reading this book. I knew I’d been taken, I had my proof for that, but I didn’t fit the stereotypical alien abduction scenario at all. Something else was clearly going on here….but what?? This book provided my big “Eureka!” breakthrough moment, which is why I still have to recommend it despite its flaws. There are many useful insights and corroborations to be found in the Lammers’ “MILABS,” but do read with discernment as there seems to be a subtle agenda going on with this book to dismiss certain aspects of abductions, as well as using silly comic book-style illustrations that undermine this important subject. But, still a must-read for any MILABS/mind control researcher.

Close Encounters of the Possession Kind- Dr. William Baldwin. Dr. Baldwin is a hypnotist specializing in the phenomenon of entity/alien attachments on people and how to rid their presence. The book also delves into the aliens’ etheric implants and techno gadgets that they attach to their abduction targets. A good book for those who believe themselves to be an abductee, but hadn’t realized this component of it all.

The Mothman Prophesies – John Keel. In the thirteen months leading up to the collapse of the Silver Bridge on December 15, 1967, Point Pleasant West Virginia was inundated with weirdness. UFOs, Men In Black, and most notorious of all…the Mothman, a red eyed winged flying apparition about 7-8 feet tall. Author John Keel was there in the middle of it all while it was happening, becoming intertwined in the lives of many Point Pleasant residents and experiencing the paranormal weirdness firsthand. He chronicled his investigations in this book, which is a great read. There are very few books like this, where the author was actually there while events happened. (“Silent Invasion,” mentioned earlier, would be another example of this type of book.) It’s also an interesting study in group synchronicity and hyperdimensional manipulation from behind the scenes. John Keel had his extended network of people that he was communicating with around the country via phone and mail, (the days before the internet, after all) and some of the synchs that began happening and the way things were “lining up” among his network were truly amazing. I came away from this book concluding that not only are there hyperdimensional elements, of course, but that they also have a tendency to toy with humans just for the fun of it.

Conspiracy – Exposing agendas, Mind control, chemtrails, HAARP, NWO, 9/11, the dumbing down of society, etc.


The Illuminati Formula For Creating a Totally Undetectable Mind Control Slave Fritz Springmeier and Cisco Wheeler. Hands down the single most detailed and comprehensive source on Illuminati/occult based mind control. Mind control victim Cisco Wheeler worked with Fritz Springmeier to put forth the techniques that are supposedly employed to compartmentalize the mind, how the systems are set up within the mind, what the symbolisms, trigger words and number codes are, (sometimes supposedly minus a few words or numbers so as to not trigger programmed people who may be reading) as well as information regarding electronic mind control, implants, ritual cult programming and assigning demons to targets, among many other things including Disney, and the Wizard of Oz. It’s like a handbook in a way getting into some heavy duty dark material. Not for the faint of heart. Recommend easing your way into the subject with lighter fare first if you are new to the topic. Whatever the real deal may be with Fritz and the personal controversy surrounding him there’s still no question that many of the symbolisms and specific mind control details noted in “Illuminati Formula” are running rampant within media, matching spot-on in uncanny ways. Since I see evidence for what he’s talking about both in the world around me and in my own personal situation, I continue to recommend it.

Mind Control, World Control; and Mass ControlJim Keith. Two books that give a solid overview of all things relating to government mind control on both individual targets and the masses at large, by the late Jim Keith.

Mind Control in Amerika – Five Easy Steps to Create a Manchurian CandidateGunther Rassbacher. Excellent article that outlines the government’s selection and training of youths from America’s juvenile incarceration system to become programmed “Manchurian Candidates.” I recommend this piece in my mind control writings because I recognized what Gunther was talking about as being the situation of my younger brother Joe, who’d been locked up between the ages of 14-17 and then continually followed, monitored and taken after being released. Much of what Gunther writes about was spot on for what I witnessed of Joe, and there were things that Joe said to me that were word for word verbatim what’s in this article. So he seems to definitely know what he’s talking about.

Secret, Don’t Tell – The Encyclopedia of Hypnotism Carla Emery. Comprehensive historical overview of hypnosis that delves into the use of unethical hypnosis, as well as government mind control projects. Well researched, extremely detailed, and a very valuable resource that also contains many additional book, article and website links and references. The late Ms. Emery, who was a victim of mind control herself, put a lot of time and effort into compiling this work and even went into hiding while writing it. If it wasn’t for the intervention of “something higher” one night, then this book wouldn’t exist at all, as explained in the very first opening introduction. !

Angels Don’t Play This HAARPDr. Nick Begich, Jeannie Manning. Historical overview on the HAARP array in Alaska and the Tesla technology it’s derived from; what it is, what it’s supposed to do, and the impact it will have on the planet and life forms.

Montalk High quality website with articles by the author Montalk regarding metaphysics, conspiracy, aliens/abduction, the Matrix Control System, and alternative science. Click here for his new book, ‘Fringe Knowledge for Beginners.’ See also his excellent nine part ‘Gnosis’ series that he just completed in October, 2011 that dissects what this reality really is, and how and why it’s gone so awry.

The Universal Seduction – Many contributing authors

Strange Days, Strange Skies Concerning chemtrails…

Chemtrail Central More chemtrail info…

The Underground History of American Education; and Dumbing Us Down – The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Education – John Taylor Gatto. Former New York State Teacher of the Year, John Gatto quit teaching via a letter to the Wall Street Journal OpEd page in 1991, declaring that he was no longer willing to hurt children. He has since moved on to campaigning for public education reform, and these books outline where our educational system has gone wrong. Gatto has written many other books that you can find on Amazon as well.

Alice in Wonderland and the World Trade Center DisasterDavid Icke. Expose that questions all the plot holes and discrepancies of the official story of September 11th. The official story doesn’t add up, worse yet, it’s an outright lie. This is a must-read for anybody who’s questioning. After presenting a brief re-cap on the “Illuminati” and world situation, David Icke walks the reader step by step through the events of that day and all the questions it spawns, thoroughly covering every possible plot hole and discrepancy you can think of, and then some. I myself haven’t believed the official story since the end of the first week after 9/11, when the Orange County Register (in SoCal) ran a big story complete with colored illustrations to prove to the reading audience how the planes were able to take down both towers. Never mind that they went down looking identical to a controlled demolition. The effort to convince the public with large, full page colored diagrams was so over the top that I knew right then – this is bullshit. I frowned and even said that out loud while tossing the paper aside in disgust. They were trying WAY too hard to the point where they overshot it. Shortly thereafter I was getting ready for work one morning and felt compelled to switch the radio dial to 106.7 KROQ out of nowhere, a station I no longer listened to, based out of Pasadena. And that’s when I heard this fast talking British guy explaining to morning hosts Kevin and Bean about how the events of 9/11 were orchestrated by something known as the “Illuminati.” His name was David Icke. His charisma and rapid fire delivery of some of the discrepancies and plot holes in the story had me riveted, and I sat down on the floor to listen, glued to the radio even though my ride was due to pick me up in only five minutes. I didn’t care though. All I knew was that the official story was total bunk, and here was the first person I’d heard anywhere, but especially within the media, voicing this perspective. Hallelujah! Kevin and Bean laughed and ridiculed him, but I made mental note of his website address when it was mentioned, with plans to look it up later at work. So there was at least one person glued to David’s every word that morning as the radio signal went out to literally, millions upon millions of people in the Los Angeles/Orange County region. I hadn’t done any formal conspiracy research yet at this point, but this infamous David Icke interview is what started it all and sent me on my path. The rest is history. (btw David Icke references this particular interview on page 205 of the book, the last paragraph of the chapter.)

Psychic Happenings


Practical Psychic Self Defense – Understanding and Surviving Unseen Influences – Robert Bruce. I had the chance to see Robert Bruce speak in person for free at our local metaphysical bookshop in 2005 and I jumped at the chance since I’d read this book and found it to be the real deal. Mr. Bruce knows what he’s talking about and his book is filled with personal anecdotes from his hands on experience dealing with neg entities and possession, written in a personable, accessible and level headed way. People don’t realize how much neg entities run rampant exerting their influence on people, and for that reason I consider this book an absolute must-read. After reading it you may realize in retrospect that certain things that have happened to you in life or particular behaviors/feelings/moods that you or somebody you know have exhibited were really the influence of a neg entity. So much of what he talks about in this book I experienced first hand when I spent a year living in a paranormally polluted apartment, which I called The Vortex and I only wish I could have had this book available to me at the time to help me with what I was going through! Unfortunately it wasn’t published until 2002, and my “Vortex” stuff happened in 2000-01. And many other things he talks about I later encountered from 2002 – 2007. Click on the above link to his website, Astral Dynamics, and check out the book’s table of contents and summary to give you an idea of everything the book gets into. Hearing Mr. Bruce in person relaying some of his stories that he talks about in the book was really neat, and he was a likeable and down to earth guy.


Alternative History/The Situation on Planet Earth

Who Built the Moon?Christopher Knight & Alan Butler. This book isn’t perfect – it was written by two people, so the writing doesn’t always flow and wasn’t well edited, it seems to have been slapped together on the fly, and the “photos” section is really just a collection of generic stock pics, and one of the pics is incorrectly labeled to boot (!!) BUT….BUT!….hang in there! :D Because the message of this book and the discoveries that the authors made is well worth the read. The authors discovered that the mathematical properties of the earth-moon-sun system defy statistical chance, and the implications of it all are pretty astounding. It’s one thing for a person to say that they believe the moon is a construct – it’s another thing entirely when they have the mathematical statistics to back it up. But math-phobes need not worry – this isn’t a “math and physics” book, so anybody can follow along. Also see this interview with Christopher Knight from New Dawn Magazine for more background on where these guys are coming from.

Survivors of Atlantis – Their Impact on World Culture- Frank Joseph. There are a lot of alternative history books out there, but this one was well done in my opinion. So many interesting points and connections are made in this book, and what I enjoyed in particular were the details of the four (Atlantean) cataclysms that Frank Joseph was able to put together using history, anthropology, geology, astronomy, and climatology, as well as the cross comparison to the various Native American legends that all say the same basic thing, describing survivors from a catastrophe that came from the east and integrated with their tribes. There’s also the fascinating opening introduction regarding the massive copper mining operation in the upper Michigan peninsula that coincided with Europe’s Bronze Age, “Menomonie Indian tradition speaks of fair-skinned mariners who had come in the past to ‘dig out the shiny bones’ of the Earth Mother….” and the little known area of Poverty Point, Louisiana, a city that existed 3,000 years before Columbus and whose concentric rings of alternating land and water canals matched the description of Plato’s Atlantis. Possibly the Gulf of Mexico entrance up the Mississippi and into Michigan where the copper mines were.

The Gods of Eden – William Bramley. When Mr. Bramley started out trying to research the origins of human warfare, “UFOs” and “aliens” were the last thing on his mind. But his historical research began revealing that non-human intelligences seem to be directing affairs on planet Earth from behind the scenes. Down to earth, informative and thought provoking, “The Gods of Eden” (released in 1990, before David Icke and Jim Marrs) winds its way back through human history and shows the thread that links politics, war, religion, and even great plagues. I find this book to be superior to Jim Marrs’ “Rule by Secrecy” from 2000 because it thankfully avoids Marrs’ mistake of tying everything together at the end into the work of Zechariah Sitchin and “the Annunaki.”

*The Convoluted Universe, Books I – IV – Dolores Cannon Dolores Cannon is a hypnotist investigating past lives. Ms. Cannon has been regressing people for years and while most sessions are pretty mundane, every once in a while something really interesting comes out..such as future lives, parallel realities and incarnations as non-human entities on other planets. These books are a compilation of those spectacular and revelatory sessions she’s experienced with people, with information that will expand your view of reality if it wasn’t already.

The Stargate Conspiracy – Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince. Book that challenges the Egypt-Mars link that has worked its way into the alternative history research circles over the past twenty years or so, as well as delving into insidious government tinkering within the new age/channeling movement….something that many, if not most, new agers seem to be completely unaware of.

Dreams, Astral Travel/Out of Body, Remote Viewing, etc.
