On a superficial level the Illuminati's motivation to control space based weapons and surveilance  is obvious.  The following statement appears in the opening statement of Lyndon B. Johnson in U.S. Senate, Hearings before the Preparedness Investigating Subcommittee of the Committee on Armed Services, 85th Cong., 1st and 2d Sess., November 25, 26, 27, December 13, 14, 16, and 17, 1957, January 10, 13, 15, 16, 17, 20, 21, and 23, 1958 (1958):

“Control of space means control of the world. From space, the masters of infinity would have the power to control the earth’s weather, to cause drought and flood, to change the tides and raise the levels of the sea, to divert the gulf stream and change temperate climates to frigid.”  http://www.usafa.edu/df/dfh/docs/Harmon49.pdf

However there is an even more insidious Illuminati space agenda which can be understood by examining the history of occult secret societies, science fiction, religion, flying discs and space exploration in the context of the Illuminati's plan to bring about a one world government  and culture (New World Order) using the global occult network of secret societies including the Freemasons and other smaller esoteric organisations such as the Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.).

http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/NewAge/Sci.htm

Early elements of science fiction are found in ancient texts such as the Indian epics including Ramayana, which had mythical Vimana flying machines able to travel into space.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_science_fiction

In the 16th century the discoveries in the sciences and the dawning of the Enlightenment inspired literature informed by these advances. One of the earliest precursors  to modern science fiction is the superior country imagined in Thomas More's 1516 novel Utopia.  Occult hero Francis Bacon's fantasy The New Atlantis was published in 1627 and described a dictatorship run by a secret society named Salomon's College, which ruled by virtue of its superior scientific knowledge kept hidden from view of the populous. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_science_fictionSalomon's College directly represents the Illuminati's position in The New World Order.

From the Earth to the Moon, 1865

The dream of stepping into the outer reaches of the Earth's atmosphere in the 20th century was driven by the fiction of Jules Verne and H.G.Wells.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_exploration#History_of_exploration_in_the_20th_century

"In spite of the opinions of certain narrow-minded people who would shut up the human race upon this globe, we shall one day travel to the Moon, the planets, and the stars with the same facility, rapidity and certainty as we now make the ocean voyage from Liverpool to New York." — Jules Verne, From the Earth to the Moon, 1865

Verne's adventure stories, notably A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), From the Earth to the Moon (1865), and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1869) mixed daring romantic adventure with technology that was either up to the minute or logically extrapolated into the future. They were tremendous commercial successes and established that an author could make a career out of such material.  H.G. Wells's stories, on the other hand, use science fiction devices to lecture about his society. In The Time Machine (1895), for example, the technical details of the machine are glossed over quickly so that the Time Traveller can tell a story that criticizes the stratification of English society. The story also uses Darwinian evolution (as would be expected in a former student of Darwin's champion, Huxley), and shows an awareness, and criticism, of Marxism. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_science_fiction

Evidence of Jules Verne being a Freemason is limited to masonic references in his work for example Journey to the centre of the Earth includes the terms square, level and plumb rule in the same sentence, reference is made to the Great Architect of the Universe; and a when a dagger is found is referred to as a poniard. These are just a few of the many references in the book. http://internet.lodge.org.uk/shortpaperscompetition/library/SPC200764.pdf

Michel Lamy has also identified Rosicrucian references in Verne's work http://www.amazon.co.uk/Secret-Message-Jules-Verne-Rosicrucians/dp/1594771618

Baron Edmond Benjamin James de Rothschild (1845 – 1934) was a French member of the Rothschild banking family. A strong supporter of Zionism, his generous donations lent significant support to the movement during its early years, which helped lead to the establishment of the State of Israel.  In 1882 Edmond cut back on his purchases of art and began to buy land in Palestine. He became a leading proponent of the Zionist movement, financing the first site at Rishon LeZion. In his goal for the establishment of a Jewish homeland, he promoted industrialization and economic development.  It is reasonable to assume Rothschild backing for the many different organisations which eventually forced Israel into existance. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edmond_James_de_Rothschild

War of the Worlds

H.G. Wells' New World Order pedigree is not at all hidden, he was an early member of the Fabian Society in the 1880s http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fabian_Society

and in 1898 he published The War of the Worlds, a science fiction novel which comprises the first-person narrative of an unnamed protagonist's adventures in London and the surrounding countryside as Earth is invaded by Martians. Written in 1895–97, it is one of the earliest stories that details a conflict between mankind and an extraterrestrial race. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_War_of_the_Worlds

H. G.'s most consistent political ideal was the World State. He stated in his autobiography that from 1900 onward he considered a World State inevitable. He envisioned the state to be a planned society that would advance science, end nationalism, and allow people to progress by merit rather than birth.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._G._Wells

An esoteric reference that H.G. made in A Modern Utopia, p. 67, that the Air Dictatorship's NWO would be "Bacon's visionary House of Salomon". http://www.hubertlerch.com/pdf/Wells_A_Modern_Utopia.pdfserves to further confirm his occult connections.

The Theosophy Society's seal

During the late 19th century occult theosophical initiate societies emerged.  In 1875 Helena Blavatsky and others founded one of these theosophical initiate societies, the Theosophical Society, an occult organization with roots in the modern German Theosophy of the 1600s, which seeks to extract the common roots of all religions in order to form a universal doctrine.  Theosophist William Scott-Elliot's book The Story of Atlantis & The Lost Lemuria (first published 1896), describes the aircraft of the Atlanteans being propelled by "Vril-force"; his books are still published by the Theosophical Society.  Edward Bulwer-Lytton's 1871 novel entitled Vril, the Power of the Coming Race, about a superior subterranean master race and the energy-form called Vril was endorsed by Blavatsky in her book Isis Unveiled (1877) and again in The Secret Doctrine (1888); Blavatsky weaves the Vril power and its attainment by a superhuman elite into a mystical doctrine of race and transforms the subterranean people into mysterious benevolent spiritual guides (extraterrestrial or interdimensional intelligences).  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vril

Blavatsky's work helped to foster antisemitism, which is perhaps one of the reasons her esoteric work was so rapidly accepted in German circles.  Blavatsky sharply differentiated Aryan and Jewish religion and believed "The Aryans were the most spiritual people on earth."  Blavatsky's wrote in The Secret Doctrine: Aryans used religion as an "everlasting lodestar" in contrast to Judaism which Blavatsky claimed was based on "mere calculation" while characterizing it as a "religion of hate and malice toward everyone and everything outside itself." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theosophy  The Theosophy Society's seal incorporates the Swastika and the Star of David, together with the Ankh, Aum and Ouroboros symbols.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theosophical_Society

The Red Shield of the Rothschilds including the Star of David

Theosophical Society use of the star of David may seem incongruous until one considers the strategy of Theodor Herzl, who was recognized as the founder of the Zionist idealogy when he published his book in 1896, The Jewish State, where he declared that the cure for anti-semitism was the establishment of a Jewish state.  Herzl thought the best place to establish the Jewish state was in Palestine and wrote in his diary:  “It is essential that the sufferings of Jews.. . become worse. . . this will assist in realization of our plans. . .I have an excellent idea. . . I shall induce anti-Semites to liquidate Jewish wealth. . . The anti-Semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-Semites shall be our best friends”. (Herzl Diary, Part I, pp. 16) http://www.jewsagainstzionism.com/zionism/herzl/index.cfm

The Parliament of the World's Religions at the World Columbian Exposition (an early world’s fair) at Chicago in 1893 marked the first formal gathering of representatives of Eastern and Western spiritual traditions. Today it is recognized as the occasion of the birth of formal interreligious dialogue worldwide.

The idea of a flying disc dates back at least to 1898 when, on June 14, 1898 F.A. Jone was grante US patent  605579; judging by the relative size of the ladder the design is at least 60 feet high. http://longstreet.typepad.com/thesciencebookstore/2012/03/an-early-and-patented-flying-saucer-1898.html     http://www.google.com/patents?id=K3BYAAAAEBAJ&pg=PA1&source=gbs_selected_pages&cad=1#v=onepage&q&f=false

A trip the the moon

The first ever science fiction film was based loosely on Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon and H. G. Wells' The First Men in the Moon.  A Trip to the Moon or Voyage to the Moon (French: Le Voyage dans la lune) is a 1902 French black-and-white silent film written and directed by Georges Méliès, assisted by his brother Gaston.  The film runs 14 minutes and was extremely popular at the time of its release.  A Trip to the Moon uses innovative animation and special effects, including the well-known image of the spaceship landing in the Moon's eye, which provides the inevitable Illuminati stamp of authenticity.  Ironically some have remarked that Georges Méliès aimed in the film to "invert the hierarchal values of modern French society and hold them up to ridicule in a riot of the carnivalesque"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Trip_to_the_Moon

According to the Smithsonian Institution and Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI), the Wright brothers made the first sustained, controlled, powered heavier-than-air manned flight at Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, four miles (8 km) south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina on December 17, 1903.  One very early example of a disc shaped aircraft was Charles Voight's Umbrella, which he made with McCormick-Romme and first flew on March 11, 1910.  http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=pl&u=http://darmowa-energia.eko.org.pl/pliki/ekoauto/saucer.html&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dnorthrop%2Bns-97%2Bpatent%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26hs%3DE5P%26pwst%3D1%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-GB:official%26prmd%3Dimvns&sa=X&ei=3XBtUNCxAeSO4gS27IBQ&ved=0CEcQ7gEwBA

Charles Voight's Umbrella



John Dewey (originator of progressive education, self-proclaimed advocate of collectivism and opponent of teaching objective knowledge in the schools) directly revealed New World Order plans when he http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/Blog/?p=565

spoke at the dinner given by the Mayor for the City of New York in honor of Viscount Ishii of Japan in 1917: "Some one remarked that the best way to unite all the nations on this globe would be an attack from some other planet. In the face of such an alien enemy, people would respond with a sense of their unity of interest and purpose. We have the next thing to that at the present time. Before a common menace, North and South America, the Occident, and Orient have done an unheard of thing, a wonderful thing, a thing which, it may well be, future history will point to as the most significant thing in these days of wonderful happenings. They have joined forces amply and intimately in a common cause with one another and with the European nations which were most directly threatened. What a few dreamers hoped might happen in the course of some slow coming century has become an accomplished fact in a few swift years. In spite of geographical distance, unlike speech, diverse religion, and hitherto independent aims, nations from every continent have formed what for the time being is nothing less than a world state, an immense cooperative action in behalf of civilization." http://net.lib.byu.edu/estu/wwi/comment/japanvisit/JapanC10.htm

On 2 November 1917  Arthur Bafour, UK foreign secretary, wrote the Balfour Declaration to Walter Rothschild,  a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland: "His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balfour_Declaration

Thule Society emblem including swastika

Rudolf von Sebottendorff (Theosophist, Freemason and Rosicrucian) established the Thule Society, which became increasingly political, and in 1918 established a political party, the German Workers' Party. This party was joined in 1919 by Adolf Hitler, who transformed it into the National Socialist German Workers' Party or Nazi Party. Sebottendorf was also the owner of the Völkischer Beobachter, which Hitler bought in 1921.  This newspaper was to become Hitler’s most important propaganda tool.  It first appeared weekly, then daily from 8 February 1923.  For twenty-five years it formed part of the official public face of the Nazi party.

A primary focus of Thule Society was a claim concerning the origins of the Aryan race. In 1917 people who wanted to join the "Germanic Order", out of which the Thule Society developed in 1918, had to sign a special "blood declaration of faith" concerning the lineage: "The signer hereby swears to the best of his knowledge and belief that no Jewish or coloured blood flows in either his or in his wife's veins, and that among their ancestors are no members of the coloured races."

"Thule" ((Greek): Θούλη) was a land located by Greco-Roman geographers in the furthest north (often displayed as Iceland).  The term "Ultima Thule" ((Latin): most distant Thule) is also mentioned by the Roman poet Virgil in his pastoral poems called the Georgics.  Although originally Thule was probably the name for Scandinavia, Virgil simply uses it as a proverbial expression for the edge of the known world, and his mention should not be taken as a substantial reference to Scandinavia.  They identified Ultima Thule, said by Nazi mystics to be the capital of ancient Hyperborea, as a lost ancient landmass in the extreme north: near Greenland or Iceland. These ideas derived from earlier speculation by Ignatius L. Donnelly that a lost landmass had once existed in the Atlantic, and that it was the home of the Aryan race, a theory he supported by reference to the distribution of swastika motifs. He identified this with Plato's Atlantis, a theory further developed by Helena Blavatsky of the Theosophy Society.

metropolis

At the end of the silent movie era, in 1927, Fritz Lang's classic sci-fi movie Metropolis was released.  Lang's parents owned  the collected works of Jules Verne when he was a child and he later graduated to occult books. http://www.nytimes.com/books/first/m/mcgilligan-lang.html

Metropolis was the world's most expensive silent film at the time of its release; the movie is repleat with occult symbolism (at one point Rotwang's Machine-Man appears with inverted pentagram in the background) and it presented a future society divided by class warfare, with the rich elite living in the towering skyscrapers of Metropolis, and the lowly workers belowThe film is regarded as a classic and was refenced numerous times in future art works. http://vigilantcitizen.com/musicbusiness/the-occult-symbolism-of-movie-metropolis-and-its-importance-in-pop-culture/

Frau im Mond

Herman Oberth was the first man to realize the importance of multiple stages in rocket travel and is considered the father of rocketry. He wrote, "If there is a small rocket on top of a big one, and if the big one is jettisoned and the small one is ignited, then their speeds are added."   In 1929 he published his second draft of The Rocket into Planetary Space.  This book, which explained how rockets could escape the Earth's gravitational pull, finally gained Oberth widespread recognition.  After receiving a patent for his rocket design, Oberth's first rocket was launched on May 7, 1931, near Berlin, Germany.  In the autumn of 1929, Oberth conducted a static firing of his first liquid-fueled rocket motor, which he named the Kegeldüse. The engine was built by Klaus Riedel in a workshop space provided by the Reich Institution of Chemical Technology, and although it lacked a cooling system, it did run briefly.  He was helped in this experiment by an 18 year old student Wernher von Braun,

Fritz Lang's 1929 film Die Frau im Mond ("Woman in the Moon"), was the first realistic depiction of spaceflight in cinematic history. Although Oberth is often credited as the main technical consultant to the film, popular science Willy Ley's role was of central importance. Oberth was tasked with building a small rocket, to be launched at the film's premiere. This project never materialized.  However, Ley's work on the movie did. As director Fritz Lang later recalled, "The work he had done as consultant and advisor... was amazing. The models of the spaceship, really a highly advanced model of a rocket, the trajectories and the orbits of the modular capsule from the earth, around the earth, and to the moon and back... were so accurate that in 1937 the Gestapo confiscated not only all models of the spaceship but also all foreign prints of the picture." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willy_Ley

Nazi Zionism

In 1932 H.G. Wells  told Young Liberals at the University of Oxford that progressive leaders must become liberal fascists or enlightened Nazis in order to implement their ideas. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._G._Wells revealing that, for H.G., the ends justified any and all means, which is entirely consistent with the philosophy of the Illuminati.

The Haavara (Transfer) Agreement was agreed to by the German Nazi government in 1933 to allow the Zionist movement, in the form of the Haavara company to transfer property from Germany to Palestine, for the sole purpose of encouraging Jewish emigration from Germany. The Haavara company operated under a similar plan as the earlier Hanotea company and required immigrants to pay at least 1000 pounds sterling into the banking company. This money would then be used to buy German exports for import to Palestine.  This colusion between Zionist bankers (Star of David) and Nazi Germany (Swastika) remained secret until 1984.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Transfer_Agreement

The first experimentation with flying discs was performed by a Rumanian aeronautical engineer named Henri Coandă who was granted a French patent related to the Coandă Effect in 1934.  During early 1930 he used the same principle as the basis for the design of a disc-shaped aircraft called Aerodina Lenticulara, a flying saucer that used an unspecified source of high pressure gases to flow through a ring-shaped vent system. In 1936 Coandă applied for a patent for his design.  No practical full-scale version was built. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_Coand%C4%83

Wall Street & The Rise Of Hitler

The post-World War II Kilgore Committee of the United States Senate heard detailed evidence from government officials to the effect that "...when the Nazis came to power in 1933, they found that long strides had been made since 1918 in preparing Germany for war from an economic and industrial point of view.

This build-up for European war both before and after 1933 was in great part due to Wall Street financial assistance in the 1920s to create the German cartel system, and to technical assistance from well-known American firms... to build the German Wehrmacht. Whereas this financial and technical assistance is referred to as "accidental" or due to the "short-sightedness" of American businessmen, the evidence... strongly suggests some degree of premeditation on the part of these American financiers. Similar and unacceptable pleas of "accident" were made on behalf of American financiers and industrialists in the parallel example of building the military power of the Soviet Union from 1917 onwards. Yet these American capitalists were willing to finance and subsidize the Soviet Union while the Vietnam war was underway, knowing that the Soviets were supplying the other side.

The contribution made by American capitalism to German war preparations before 1940 can only be described as phenomenal. It was certainly crucial to German military capabilities. For instance, in 1934 Germany produced domestically only 300,000 tons of natural petroleum products and less than 800,000 tons of synthetic gasoline; the balance was imported. Yet, ten years later in World War II, after transfer of... [Rockefeller's] Standard Oil of New Jersey hydrogenation patents and technology to I. G. Farben (used to produce synthetic gasoline from coal), Germany produced about 6 1/2 million tons of oil — of which 85 percent (5 1/2 million tons) was synthetic oil using the Standard Oil hydrogenation process.  Moreover, the control of synthetic oil output in Germany was held by the I. G. Farben subsidiary, Braunkohle-Benzin A. G., and this Farben cartel itself was created in 1926 with Wall Street financial assistance." http://www.reformation.org/wall-st-ch1.html

Corporate America built Nazi Germany


In January 1935, Willy Ley used company stationary to write a letter that authorized his vacation in London.  Carrying only his favorite books, a few changes of clothing, and travel documentation, Ley fled Germany for Great Britain and ultimately the United States.  He was horrified by National Socialism, its ideology, and its style of violent politics.  Ley not only disliked the irrational nature of German politics, but he also associated the Nazis with the rise of "Pseudo-science."  To make matters worse, Ley had an established reputation as an international scientist, who openly shared and popularized technical information about rocketry; his articles continued to be republished by foreign newspapers throughout 1934.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willy_Ley

The development of rocket science in America can be traced backed to the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology (GALCIT) in 1936 when the first set of rocket experiments were carried out in the Arroyo Seco.  Caltech graduate students Frank Malina, Weld Arnold, Apollo M. O. Smith, and Tsien Hsue-shen, along with Jack Parsons and Edward S. Forman, tested a small, alcohol-fueled motor to gather data for Malina's graduate thesis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jet_Propulsion_Laboratory Jack Parsons provided a link between this group and the occult, Parsons saw no contradiction between his scientific and occult magical pursuits. Before each rocket test launch, Parsons would chant Aleister Crowley's hymn to the Greek god Pan. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Whiteside_Parsons

October 31, 1938

In 1938 on October 30, The War of the Worlds episode of the American radio drama anthology series The Mercury Theatre on the Air was broadcast. Directed and narrated by actor and future filmmaker Orson Welles, the episode was an adaptation of H. G. Wells's novel of the same name.  The first two thirds of the 60-minute broadcast were presented as a series of simulated news bulletins, which suggested to many listeners that an actual alien invasion by Martians was currently in progress.  Compounding the issue was the fact that the Mercury Theatre on the Air was a sustaining show (it ran without commercial breaks), adding to the program's realism.  In the days following the adaptation there was widespread outrage and panic by certain listeners who had believed the events described in the program were real. The program's news-bulletin format was described as cruelly deceptive by some newspapers and public figures, leading to an outcry against the perpetrators of the broadcast. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_War_of_the_Worlds_%28radio_drama%29

Later studies indicate that many missed the repeated notices about the broadcast being fictional, partly because The Mercury Theatre on the Air, an unsponsored cultural program with a relatively small audience, ran at the same time as the NBC Red Network's popular Chase and Sanborn Hour. About 15 minutes into Chase and Sanborn, the first comic sketch ended and a musical number began, and many listeners began tuning around the dial at that point. According to the American Experience program The Battle Over Citizen Kane, Welles knew the schedule of Chase and Sanborn and scheduled the first report from Grover's Mill at the 12-minute mark to heighten the audience's confusion. As a result, some listeners happened upon the CBS broadcast at the point the Martians emerge from their spacecraft. Because the broadcast was unsponsored, Wells and company could schedule breaks at will rather than structuring them around necessary advertisements. As a result, the only notices that the broadcast was fictional came at the start of the broadcast and about 40 and 55 minutes into it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_War_of_the_Worlds_%28radio_drama%29

In 1939, Josef “Andreas” Epp designed a radical rotor/jet powered aircraft he named the “Helioplane”. But this design could not be pursued due to the early development phase of the German turbojets of Heinkel, BMW, and Junkers. http://greyfalcon.us/restored/JOSEF%20ANDREAS%20EPP.htm

Josef Andreas Epp’s Helioplane. Propulsion was by means of a rotor vane circle. The small propeller on top of the cabin provided directional steering.

The Invasion from Mars

The War of the Worlds radio broadcast provided a unique real-life opportunity to explore the effect of the relatively new medium of radio and was an Illuminati experiment to gauge the population's response to a reported alien invasion, precisely as per John Dewey's speculation in 1917 http://www.henrymakow.com/famous_media_psy-ops_orson_wel.html.  An academic study followed; social psychologist Hadley Cantril set out to answer why people reacted as they did and his study was originally published in 1940 under the title The Invasion from Mars, A Study in the Psychology of Panic.  Using a mix of research methods Cantril blamed the people, not the broadcast, concluding that the impact of the broadcast had less to do with what went out over the air than with the "standards of judgment" people did or did not use in evaluating what they were hearing. The book is of continuing value to those interested in communications and mass behavior. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Invasion-Mars-Study-Psychology-Panic/dp/1412804701

Two years after the War of the Worlds  radio broadcast, in January 1940, H.G. Wells published his book The New World Order.  Wells expressed the idea that a new world order should be formed to unite the nations of the world in order to bring peace and end war.  In his book H.G. explained in clear terms the Fabian’s plan to implement the New World Order through psychological warfare techniques against the peoples of the world. http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/Blog/?tag=hg-wells

Also in 1940 an Austrian inventor named Viktor Schauberger built the first Repulsine (flying saucer based on the Coandă effect) initially in Berlin and then in Vienna, where the prototype reportedly broke from its mooring and smashed through the factory's ceiling. http://www.schauberger.co.uk/bio.html The early results of Schauberger’s work with the Repulsin was reported to aircraft manufacturer Heinkel Flugzeugwerke (Heinkel) for the purpose of exploring the possibility of adapting the discoid motor to aircraft. http://discaircraft.greyfalcon.us/Rudolf%20Schriever.htm



During 1941 one of Heinkel’s personnel named Rudolf Schriever came up with the idea of a “Flugkreisel” (Flight Gyro) that did not rely on Schauberger’s discoid motor but on developing turbojet technology. Schriever later claimed that the inspiration for his design originated with the discus sporting event observed by him at the 1936 Olympics; but this is doubtful given that his employer Heinkel was researching the Schauberger motor the same year as Schriever’s idea came to him.  Schauberger continued work on perfecting the Repulsin at Mauthausen along with 20-30 prisoner engineers. http://discaircraft.greyfalcon.us/Rudolf%20Schriever.htm

Schriever Flugkreisel



Schriever's Flugkreisel was a large disc-fan of 20 meters diameter with 21 rotor blades that surrounded a hemispherical cockpit. Attached to the underside of the of the disc rotor were three jet engines that spun the rotor like a helicopter for vertical take off.  Once in the air, two other lower body jets were attached to each side allowing the disc to achieve level flight.  In Schriever’s drawings the jets were powerful kerosene burning jet turbines. http://discaircraft.greyfalcon.us/Rudolf%20Schriever.htm Dr. Richard Miethe worked with Rudolf Schriever on German saucer technology.  One design which Bruno Schwenteit patented postwar was claimed to be the Miethe-Schriever disc so often labeled the mystery V-7. Schwenteit also claimed the disc was actually constructed during World War II but no photographic evidence has surfaced to prove that. http://discaircraft.greyfalcon.us/Richard%20Miethe.htm

By late 1941, the Nazi Army Research Center at Peenemünde,  possessed the technologies essential to the success of the V-2 rocket. The four key technologies for the V-2 were large liquid-fuel rocket engines, supersonic aerodynamics, gyroscopic guidance and rudders in jet control.  At the time, Adolf Hitler was not particularly impressed by the V-2; he pointed out that it was merely an artillery shell with a longer range and much higher cost. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V-2_rocket

On 11 December 1941, 4 days after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbour, Adolf Hitler declared war on President Roosevelt's USA.  Hitler explained: "It is a fact that the two historical conflicts between Germany and the United States were stimulated by two Americans, that is, by Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt, although each was inspired by the same forces... Today we know that a group of self-serving financiers stood behind Wilson. They used this paralytic professor to lead America into a war from which they hoped to profit." http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v08/v08p389_Hitler.html

It was in 1942, the same year rocket scientist Jack Parsons was appointed as head of the Agapé Lodge of Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.)  by Aleister Crowley, that Parsons made the crucial breakthrough in the development of rocket solid fuel.  Parsons switched from black powder to asphalt and potassium perchlorate. Compared with Peenemünde, the contemporary German army research facility, America was finally in the race for rocket propulsion with solid fuel for the space age.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Whiteside_Parsons One cannot help wondering if Nazi rocket knowledge was passed to Parsons via occult the network.  In 1943, Parsons was part of a group which established the Aerojet Corporation to manufacture JATO motors. The project took on the name Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in November 1943 formally becoming an Army facility operated under contract by the California Institute of Technology.

In early September 1943, von Braun promised the Nazi Long-Range Bombardment Commission that the V-2 development was 'practically complete/concluded'.  Hitler was sufficiently impressed by the enthusiasm of its developers, and needed a "wonder weapon" to maintain German morale, so authorized its deployment in large numbers.  The V-2s were constructed at the underground Mittelwerk facility by prisoners from the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp.  Hans Kammler was director of operations from January 1945.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V-2_rocket

Josef Epp meanwhile continued trying to develop a flying disc.  Epp traveled to Prague where BMW was testing out their small-scale disc-fan Flügelrad (Winged Wheel) jet auto-gyros which utilized the company’s BMW 003 series engine with a Strahlrohr (Jet Pipe) deflector system to divert engine thrust up to the spinning rotor blades, a combination rotor-jet idea that originated with Rudolf Schriever’s 1941 Flugkreisel. Epp designed, by 1943, his Omega Diskus which combined ducted fan technology with two free-spinning rotors propelled by Pabst ramjets being developed for the Fw Triebflügel (Thrust Wing) and utilizing the increased lift of the Coanda Effect. The Omega Diskus consisted of a circular cockpit 4 meters in diameter surrounded by a disc wing of 19 meters diameter. The wing supported eight ducted lift fans of 80 hp each. The engines were held in place by eight conical pipes of 3 meters diameter. http://greyfalcon.us/restored/JOSEF%20ANDREAS%20EPP.htm

The existing photos of the Omega Diskus are of four 1/10th scale models built strictly for aerodynamic testing. No full scale aircraft prototype was ever built

In 1944 Victor Schauberger was drafted into the SS and ordered (on pain of death) to develop an improved Repulsine and a submarine engine for Germany's war effort, at the Mathausen concentration camp. All prototypes and working models of the Repulsine were subsequently ordered by Field Marshall Keitel to be destroyed on the collapse of the German armies. http://www.schauberger.co.uk/bio.html

Alexander Weygers filed his Discopter patent in the US on January 1, 1944.  The discopter was a vertical lift off aircraft that looked very much like a flying saucer.  Weygers made numerous detailed drawings of the aircraft and other drawings of an American city with many discopter ports.  He sent these detailed plans to all the branches of the U.S.. Military and was eventually told that they were intrigued by the concept and the design of the craft but were not prepared to work on it at that time because the war effort superseded its development. http://www.freepatentsonline.com/2377835.pdf

The first US patented flying saucer, variations included a commute vehicle pictured above as well as large passenger airliners" 24 feet x 28 feet



On August 1, 1944 J. K. Northrup et al filed a patent (US patent No. 2412646) for a tailess aircraft of very similar design to the Horten 229, which was under development in Germany towards the end of the war.  http://www.freepatentsonline.com/2412646.pdf

Dec 14, 1944 New York Times reports foo fighters

U.S. 415th Night Fighter Squadron were the first ever air crew to regularly report UFOs and The New York times carried the story on December 14, 1944.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foo_fighter In its 15 January 1945 edition Time magazine carried a story entitled "Foo-Fighter", in which it reported that the "balls of fire" had been following USAAF night fighters for over a month, and that the pilots had named it the "foo-fighter".  According to Time, descriptions of the phenomena varied, but the pilots agreed that the mysterious lights followed their aircraft closely at high speed.  The "balls of fire" phenomenon reported from the Pacific Theater of Operations differed somewhat from the foo fighters reported from Europe; the "ball of fire" resembled a large burning sphere which "just hung in the sky", though it was reported to sometimes follow aircraft. On one occasion, the gunner of a B-29 aircraft managed to hit one with gunfire, causing it to break up into several large pieces which fell on buildings below and set them on fire.

A document entitled 1944 U.S. Strategic Air Forces In Europe - An Evaluation Of German Capabilities In 1945 reported German devices called by American Intelligence "Phoo Bombs".  Sources were reports from pilots and testimony of prisoners of war. Phoo bombs were described as "radiocontrolled, jet-propelled, still-nosed, short-range, high performance ramming weapons for use against bombing formations". Speed was estimated at 525 miles per hour. http://www.tiono.com/model/FlyingSaucers.pdf

Schriever’s Flugkreisel was transferred to Prag-Kbley where BMW was testing out the Flügelrad models. Georg Klein claimed to have seen the strange craft at the aerodrome in 1945 and his description of a large disc-fan powered by 5 jet engines that produced a tremendous roar supports his claim. None of the BMW Flügelrads were powered by 5 jet engines and none were located anywhere on the Flügelrads except inside the disc body, not attached to the disc rotor and lower body sides as with the Flugkreisel. It is further stated that in February 1945 the Flugkreisel attained a top speed of 1,300 mph and a climb to 45,000 ft in two minutes! The Flügelrads by comparison could barely get off the ground, were highly unstable, and made frequent “hard” landings. Only one BMW Flügelrad II V-2 (or V-3) finally achieved powered level flight in April 1945 just before all the Flügelrads and Schriever’s Flugkreisel were destroyed in the Russian advance. http://discaircraft.greyfalcon.us/Rudolf%20Schriever.htm

According to the Augsburger Neue Presse (Augsburger New Press) dated May 2, 1980 Ing. Heinrich Fleissner is the “Father of the Flying Disc” having designed at Peenemünde a disc known as the Düsenscheibe (Nozzle/Jet Disc) that took to the air shortly before Germany capitulated, on April 24, 1945 from Berlin-Lichtenfeld.

The end of World War II saw Nazi Germany's many technological secrets plundered.  In May 1945, Stalin's forces secured the atomic research labs at the prestigious Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in the suburbs of Berlin.   US forces removed V-2 missiles from the vast Nordhausen complex, built under the Harz Mountains in central Germany, just before the Soviets took over the factory, in what would become their area of occupation.  http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/4443934.stm

A Russian intelligence team removed Viktor Schauberger's research papers and models from his Vienna flat.  He was held for a month (or months according to different accounts)  in protective custody by American intelligence forces who decided he was not to be deported to the USA.  Schauberger's subsequently started work on his Klimator, for domestic air conditioning. http://www.schauberger.co.uk/bio.html

On June 20, 1945, the U.S. Secretary of State approved the transfer of Wherner von Braun and his specialists to America; however this was not announced to the public until October 1, 1945. Von Braun was among those scientists for whom the U.S. Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency created false employment histories and expunged Nazi Party memberships and regime affiliations from the public record.

Many had been longtime members of the Nazi party and the Gestapo, had conducted experiments including torture and brainwashing on humans at concentration camps, had used slave labor, and had committed other war crimes. http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/NWO/project_paperclip.htm

; their records were falsified under the title Operation Overcast, which was subsequently renamed Operation Paperclip. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Paperclip

Once “bleached” of their Nazism, the US Government granted the scientists security clearance to work in the United States. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wernher_von_Braun

It seems that the US was not interested in disc technology in 1945 and disc scientists were not part of Paperclip... ? http://greyfalcon.us/restored/JOSEF%20ANDREAS%20EPP.htm

The US military made a German Horten Ho 229 available to Northrop Aviation.  The Horten was a prototype of the first flying wing powered by jet engines.  With its radar-absorbing carbon impregnated plywood skin and swept-back single wing, the 1944 Ho 229 was designed to be invisible to radar and was arguably the first stealth aircraft.  The US military made one available to Northrop Aviation, the company which much later used a flying wing design for the B-2 stealth bomber.

Shortly after the war Major-General Hugh Knerr, deputy commander of the US Air Force in Europe, wrote: "Occupation of German scientific and industrial establishments has revealed the fact that we have been alarmingly backward in many fields of research.  If we do not take the opportunity to seize the apparatus and the brains that developed it and put the combination back to work promptly, we will remain several years behind while we attempt to cover a field already exploited." http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/4443934.stm

Roy Fedden (British chief of the technical mission to Germany for the Ministry of Aircraft Production) remarked that the only craft that could approach the capabilities attributed to flying saucers were those being designed by the Germans towards the end of the war.  Fedden stated in 1945: "I have seen enough of their designs and production plans to realize that if they (the Germans) had managed to prolong the war some months longer, we would have been confronted with a set of entirely new and deadly developments in air warfare." Fedden also added that the Germans were working on a number of very unusual aeronautical projects, though he did not elaborate upon his statement. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_UFOs

Several secret U.S. government projects grew out of Operation Paperclip. These projects included Project CHATTER (established 1947), and Project BLUEBIRD (established 1950), which was renamed Project ARTICHOKE in 1951. Their purpose was to study mind control, interrogation, behavior modification and related topics. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_MKULTRA

In August 1945 L. Ron Hubbard moved into the Pasadena mansion of John "Jack" Whiteside Parsons. A leading rocket propulsion researcher at the California Institute of Technology and a founder of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Parsons led a double life as an avid occultist and Thelemite, follower of the English Freemason http://freemasonry.bcy.ca/aqc/crowley.html and ceremonial magician Aleister Crowley and leader of a lodge of Crowley's magical order, Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO).  He let rooms in the house only to tenants who he specified should be "atheists and those of a Bohemian disposition". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._Ron_Hubbard

The Central Intelligence Agency was created by Congress with the passage of the National Security Act of 1947, signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. It is the descendant of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) of World War II, which was dissolved in October 1945 and its functions transferred to the State and War Departments. Eleven months earlier, in 1944, William J. Donovan, the OSS's creator, proposed to President Franklin D. Roosevelt to create a new organization directly supervised by the President: "which will procure intelligence both by overt and covert methods and will at the same time provide intelligence guidance, determine national intelligence objectives, and correlate the intelligence material collected by all government agencies." Under his plan, a powerful, centralized civilian agency would have coordinated all the intelligence services. He also proposed that this agency have authority to conduct "subversive operations abroad," but "no police or law enforcement functions, either at home or abroad." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_Intelligence_Agency

Willy Ley was a German rocket engineer who had emigrated to the United States in 1937.  In 1947, he published an article entitled "Pseudoscience in Naziland" in the science fiction magazine Astounding Science Fiction. He wrote that the high popularity of irrational convictions in Germany at that time explained how National Socialism could have fallen on such fertile ground. Among other pseudo-scientific groups he mentions one that looked for the Vril: "The next group was literally founded upon a novel. That group which I think called itself Wahrheitsgesellschaft—Society for Truth—and which was more or less localized in Berlin, devoted its spare time looking for Vril." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vril

The first report of a "flying saucer" over the United States came on 24 June 1947, when Kenneth Arnold, a private pilot and reputable businessman, while looking for a downed plane sighted nine flying objects near Mt. Rainier, Washington, traveling at an estimated speed of over 1,000 mph.  Although the objects Arnold described look an awful lot like the Horten 229, which was brought to the US from Nazi Germany in 1945, the siting gave rise to the popular terms "flying saucer" and "flying disc."  in the US.  Arnold's report was followed by a flood of additional sightings, including reports from military and civilian pilots and air traffic controllers all over the United States.

On July 8, 1947, the Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) public information officer Walter Haut in Roswell, New Mexico, issued a press release stating that personnel from the field's 509th Bomb Group had recovered a crashed "flying disk" from a ranch near Roswell, sparking intense media interest. The next day, the press reported that Commanding General of the Eighth Air Force Roger M. Ramey stated that, in fact, a radar-tracking balloon had been recovered by the RAAF personnel, not a "flying disc." A subsequent press conference was called, featuring debris said to be from the crashed object, which seemed to confirm the weather balloon description. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roswell_UFO_incident

Project CHATTER was a United States Navy program beginning in the fall of 1947 focusing on the identification and testing of drugs in interrogations and the recruitment of agents. Their search included laboratory experiments on both animal and human subjects. The program operated under the direction of Doctor Charles Savage of the Naval Medical Research Institute, Bethesda, Maryland, from 1947 to 1953.[1][2] The project was geared to identifying agents both synthetic and natural that were effective during interrogation. The project was centered around, but not restricted to, the use of anabasine (an alkaloid), scopolamine and mescaline. The program ended shortly after the Korean War in 1953, presumably due to limited progress and the success of other projects. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_CHATTER

In 1948, Air Force Gen. Nathan Twining established Project SIGN (initially named Project SAUCER) to collect, collate, evaluate, and distribute within the government all information relating to UFO sightings, on the premise that UFOs might be real and of national security concern.  Although at first fearful that the objects might be Soviet secret weapons, the Air Force soon concluded that UFOs were real but easily explained and not extraordinary. The Air Force report found that almost all sightings stemmed from one or more of three causes: mass hysteria and hallucination, hoax, or misinterpretation of known objects. Nevertheless, the report recommended continued military intelligence control over the investigation of all sightings and did not rule out the possibility of extraterrestrial phenomena.  Pyschological warfare aimed at convincing the American people that disc shaped flying objects were of extraterrestrial origin was up and running.

The basic idea of this psyop is to put thoughts and ideas into the sheeple’s mind and make them think it is their own. The psyop is a protagonist-antagonist setup. You have the government on one side and the UFO investigators opposing the government on the other side. You have the mystery, good and evil Aliens, cloak and dagger, cover ups, unknown beings, UFOs…etc. This setup is for a very good storyline, very engaging mystery. What the sheeple don’t understand is that: some of the UFO investigators (antagonists) are really serving the Illuminist agenda.

Amid mounting UFO sightings, the Air Force continued to collect and evaluate UFO data in the late 1940s under a new project, GRUDGE, which tried to alleviate public anxiety over UFOs via a public relations campaign designed to persuade the public that UFOs constituted nothing unusual or extraordinary. UFO sightings were explained as balloons, conventional aircraft, planets, meteors, optical illusions, solar reflections, or even "large hailstones." GRUDGE officials found no evidence in UFO sightings of advanced foreign weapons design or development, and they concluded that UFOs did not threaten US security. They recommended that the project be reduced in scope because the very existence of Air Force official interest encouraged people to believe in UFOs and contributed to a "war hysteria" atmosphere. On 27 December 1949, the Air Force announced the project's termination.

Rudolph Shreiver first went public with his involvment in flying disc development in a  Der Spiegel article dated March 30, 1950 in which he described his projects which were not finished at the end of the war.

First page of the original "Der Spiegel" article dated March 30, 1950

With increased Cold War tensions, the Korean war, and continued UFO sightings, USAF Director of Intelligence Maj. Gen. Charles P. Cabell ordered a new UFO project in 1952. Project BLUE BOOK became the major Air Force effort to study the UFO phenomenon throughout the 1950s and 1960s.

Take for example the McMinnville, Oregon, photographs taken by Paul Trent on 11th May 1950. These are some of the best examples of a saucer photograph and extensive analysis has shon that:  This is one of the few UFO reports in which all factors investigated, geometric, psychological, and psychical, appear to be consistent with the assertion that an extraordinary flying object, silvery, metallic, disk-shaped, tens of meters in diameter, and evidently artificial, flew within sight of two witnesses. http://greyfalcon.us/restored/FLYING%20SAUCERS.htm

In 1951, Allen W. Dulles persuaded Cord Meyer to join the CIA. However, there is evidence that he was recruited several years earlier and had been spying on the liberal internationalist organizations he had been a member of in the late 1940s.  According to Deborah Davis, Meyer became Operation Mockingbird's "principal operative".  Operation Mockingbird was a secret Central Intelligence Agency campaign to control media by covertly putting journalists on the pay role.

Lots of saucer patents filed in 1950s http://www.laesieworks.com/ifo/lib/index-designs.html

CIA closely monitored the Air Force effort, aware of the mounting number of sightings and increasingly concerned that UFOs might pose a potential security threat.  Given the distribution of the sightings, CIA officials in 1952 questioned whether they might reflect "midsummer madness.''  Agency officials accepted the Air Force's conclusions about UFO reports, although they concluded that "since there is a remote possibility that they may be interplanetary aircraft, it is necessary to investigate each sighting."

A massive buildup of sightings over the United States in 1952, especially in July, alarmed the Truman administration. On 19 and 20 July, radar scopes at Washington National Airport and Andrews Air Force Base tracked mysterious blips. On 27 July, the blips reappeared. The Air Force scrambled interceptor aircraft to investigate, but they found nothing. The incidents, however, caused headlines across the country. The White House wanted to know what was happening, and the Air Force quickly offered the explanation that the radar blips might be the result of "temperature inversions." Later, a Civil Aeronautics Administration investigation confirmed that such radar blips were quite common and were caused by temperature inversions.

Although it had monitored UFO reports for at least three years, CIA reacted to the new rash of sightings by forming a special study group within the Office of Scientific Intelligence (OSI) and the Office of Current Intelligence (OCI) to review the situation.  Edward Tauss, acting chief of OSI's Weapons and Equipment Division, reported for the group that most UFO sightings could be easily explained. Nevertheless, he recommended that the Agency continue monitoring the problem, in coordination with ATIC. He also urged that CIA conceal its interest from the media and the public, "in view of their probable alarmist tendencies" to accept such interest as confirming the existence of UFOs.

Upon receiving the report, Deputy Director for Intelligence (DDI) Robert Amory, Jr. assigned responsibility for the UFO investigations to OSI's Physics and Electronics Division, with A. Ray Gordon as the officer in charge.  Each branch in the division was to contribute to the investigation, and Gordon was to coordinate closely with ATIC. Amory, who asked the group to focus on the national security implications of UFOs, was relaying DCI Walter Bedell Smith's concerns.  Smith wanted to know whether or not the Air Force investigation of flying saucers was sufficiently objective and how much more money and manpower would be necessary to determine the cause of the small percentage of unexplained flying saucers. Smith believed "there was only one chance in 10,000 that the phenomenon posed a threat to the security of the country, but even that chance could not be taken." According to Smith, it was CIA's responsibility by statute to coordinate the intelligence effort required to solve the problem. Smith also wanted to know what use could be made of the UFO phenomenon in connection with US psychological warfare efforts. https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/97unclass/ufo.html

The 1952 Washington D.C. UFO incident, also known as the Washington flap or the Washington National Airport Sightings, was a series of unidentified flying object reports from July 12 to July 29, 1952, over Washington D.C. The most publicized sightings took place on consecutive weekends, July 19–20 and July 26–27. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1952_Washington_D.C._UFO_incident

In the issue of September 6, 1952 the Italian weekly "Tempo" published the first of a four-part article devoted to the German secret weapons of World War II and signed by the Italian journalist Luigi Romersa (who already wrote an article in 1947 about an alleged atomic test ran by German on the Baltic coast).  An additional article from a given Jacques Alain was published as an introduction. Actually it was nearly the same article published the earlier June by the French daily "France Soir" about the claims of Richard Miethe on his fantastic V-7. Such a "new" article was originally published in the French magazine "La Marche du Monde", together with one picture of the alleged Miethe disc. More or less the same article was then reprinted on the French weekly "C'est la Vie" of August 7, 1952, where a second picture was presented. It is very likely this is the ultimate source of "Tempo" magazine, which set of three pictures was introduced as the visual proof of the German saucers flight-tested over the Baltic sea on April 17, 1944. Besides the original low printing quality, the pictures look quite blurred and no detail is clearly visible.  http://www.naziufos.com/NEWSCL/tempo.htm

In January 1953, Chadwell and H. P. Robertson, a noted physicist from the California Institute of Technology, put together a distinguished panel of nonmilitary scientists to study the UFO issue.  The Robertson panel's conclusions were strikingly similar to those of the earlier Air Force project reports on SIGN and GRUDGE and to those of the CIA's own OSI Study Group. All investigative groups found that UFO reports indicated no direct threat to national security and no evidence of visits by extraterrestrials.  CIA officials said no further consideration of the subject appeared warranted, although they continued to monitor sightings in the interest of national security. - add that he dismissed Foo Fighters as due to atmospheric effects!

Nathan C. Price was an engineer and inventor for Lockheed aircraft. On January 23, 1953 he also filed for a patent for a flying saucer. It was not granted until September 10, 1963.

His book, Rockets, Missiles, and Space Travel, (1957) was cited in the Space Handbook: Astronautics and its Applications, a staff report of the Select Committee on Astronautics and Space Exploration of the U.S. House of Representatives, which provided non-technical information about spaceflight to U.S. policy makers.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willy_Ley

Alien with an all seeing eye

It Came from Outer Space was released in June 1953.  It Came from Outer Space is a 1953 science fiction 3-D film directed by Jack Arnold, and starring Richard Carlson, Barbara Rush, and Charles Drake. It was Universal's first film to be filmed in 3-D.  A spaceship from another world crashes in the Arizona desert, and only an amateur stargazer and a schoolteacher suspect alien influence when the local townsfolk begin to act strange.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It_Came_from_Outer_Space

The first Scientology church was incorporated in December 1953 in Camden, New Jersey by L. Ron Hubbard, his wife Mary Sue Hubbard, and John Galusha, although the Hubbard Association of Scientologists International (HASI) had already been operating since 1952 and Hubbard had been selling Scientology books and other items. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Scientology.

Stories of extraterrestrial civilizations and interventions in past lives form a part of the belief system of Scientology. The most well-known story publicized and held up to ridicule by critics is that of Xenu, the ruler of the Galactic Confederacy who is said to have brought billions of frozen people to Earth 75 million years ago and placed them near a number of volcanoes, and dropped hydrogen bombs into them, thus killing the entire population in an effort to solve overpopulation. The spirits of these people were then captured by Xenu and mass implanted with numerous suggestions and then “packaged” into clusters of spirits. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UFO_religion

In 1954, JPL teamed up with Wernher von Braun’s rocketeers at the Army Ballistic Missile Agency’s Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, to propose orbiting a satellite during the International Geophysical Year. The team lost that proposal to Project Vanguard, and instead embarked on a classified project to demonstrate ablative re-entry technology using a Jupiter-C rocket. They carried out three successful sub-orbital flights in 1956 and 1957. Using a spare Jupiter-C, the two organizations then launched America’s first satellite, Explorer 1, on February 1, 1958.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jet_Propulsion_Laboratory

To most US political and military leaders, the Soviet Union by the mid-1950s had become a dangerous opponent. Soviet progress in nuclear weapons and guided missiles was particularly alarming. In the summer of 1949, the USSR had detonated an atomic bomb. In August 1953, only nine months after the United States tested a hydrogen bomb, the Soviets detonated one. In the spring of 1953, a top secret RAND Corporation study also pointed out the vulnerability of SAC bases to a surprise attack by Soviet long-range bombers. Concern over the danger of a Soviet attack on the United States continued to grow, and UFO sightings added to the uneasiness of US policymakers.

Mounting reports of UFOs over eastern Europe and Afghanistan also prompted concern that the Soviets were making rapid progress in this area. CIA officials knew that the British and Canadians were already experimenting with "flying saucers." Project Y was a Canadian-British-US developmental operation to produce a nonconventional flying-saucer-type aircraft, and Agency officials feared the Soviets were testing similar devices. https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/97unclass/ufo.html

In November 1954, CIA had entered into the world of high technology with its overhead reconnaissance project.  The Groom Lake test facility in Area 51 was established by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for Project Aquatone, the development of the Lockheed U-2 strategic reconnaissance aircraft in April 1955.  By August 1955 CIA was testing the U2 high-altitude experimental aircraft.  A U-2 fleet under the control of the CIA began overflights of Soviet territory by mid-1956.  It could fly at 60,000 feet; in the mid-1950s, most commercial airliners flew between 10,000 feet and 20,000 feet. Consequently, once the U-2 started test flights, commercial pilots and air traffic controllers began reporting a large increase in UFO sightings.  The early U-2s were silver (they were later painted black) and reflected the rays from the sun, especially at sunrise and sunset. They often appeared as fiery objects to observers below. Air Force BLUE BOOK investigators aware of the secret U-2 flights tried to explain away such sightings by linking them to natural phenomena such as ice crystals and temperature inversions. By checking with the Agency's U-2 Project Staff in Washington, BLUE BOOK investigators were able to attribute many UFO sightings to U-2 flights. They were careful, however, not to reveal the true cause of the sighting to the public. https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/97unclass/ufo.html

The Report on Project Silver Bug, written in 1955 by the Air Technical Intelligence Center and Wright Air Development Center,  It proposed the mounting of a research and development project into the building of a jet-propelled flying saucer, capable of both vertical takeoff and landing along with supersonic speeds up to 1,500 mph. If successful, the craft would have been based underground, thus avoiding the need for long runways and easily-distinguished bases which would have been easily taken out by a single nuclear bomb or missile warhead. http://greyfalcon.us/restored/Project%20Silver%20Bug.htm

interesting was an article featured in Look magazine dated June 14th 1955 (Volume 19) which featured a design study for a flying saucer produced by Thomas Turner, an British aeronautical engineer with Republic Aviation Corporation. It would seem that Turner might have had some knowledge of Silver Bug if only because his proposal for a flying saucer was almost exactly the same as the ATIC aircraft. In addition Turner's proposal includes use of the Coanda effect and the placing of a pilot in a prone position in order to allow for high acceleration and quick turns.

Future airports built for vertically rising flying saucers would have no need of the long, vulnerable runway's today's fighters require. The complete operation could go underground. Tunnels with take-off shafts set into the ground, complete with maintenance bays, fuel and crew quarters, would be bombproofed shelters for a saucer squadron. The shafts would be sealed after take-off for camouflage and protection.  http://greyfalcon.us/restored/FLYING%20SAUCERS.htm

Heinrich Fleissner was an engineer, designer and technical advisor for the German Peenemünde saucer project. On March 28, 1955, he filed a patent application with the United States Patent Office for a flying saucer! It was not granted until June 7, 1960. http://greyfalcon.us/Belschrmiet.htm it is on file today (Patent number  2,939,648) http://www.google.com/patents?id=RcxtAAAAEBAJ&pg=PA1&source=gbs_selected_pages&cad=2#v=onepage&q&f=false The disc was never built http://discaircraft.greyfalcon.us/HEINRICH%20FLEISSNER.htm

France developed a flying saucer with the help of French aerospace designer Rene Couzinet. It had a diameter of twenty seven feet but not too much is known about it. However, pictures of it appeared in the Philadelphia Penn Inquirer on July 5, 1955.

Adding to the concern was a flying saucer sighting by US Senator Richard Russell and his party while traveling on a train in the USSR in October 1955. After extensive interviews of Russell and his group, however, CIA officials concluded that Russell's sighting did not support the theory that the Soviets had developed saucerlike or unconventional aircraft. Herbert Scoville, Jr., the Assistant Director of OSI, wrote that the objects observed probably were normal jet aircraft in a steep climb.  https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/97unclass/ufo.html

Just after 7 P.M. on October 4, 1955, while on a train in the Transcaucasia region, the senator happened to gaze out a window to the south. To his considerable astonishment his eyes focused on a large disc-shaped object slowly ascending as a flame shot from underneath it. The object then raced north across the tracks in front of the train. Russell scurried to alert his two companions, who looked out to see a second disc do what the first had just done. At that moment Soviet trainmen shut the curtains and ordered the American passengers not to look outside.

Soon rumors about the senator’s sighting reached America, but when a reporter for the Los Angeles Examiner tried to obtain details, Russell said only, “I have discussed this matter with the affected agencies and they are of the opinion that it is not wise to publicize this matter at this time.” The report was not declassified until 1985. Interestingly, one of the “affected agencies” was not Project Blue Book, which never received the report. Apparently, the event was too sensitive for so lowly a project.  http://ufopress.wordpress.com/2011/11/08/senator-richard-russell-sees-a-ufo/

Captain Ruppelt, Chief of the US Air Force Project Bluebook added in 1956, When WWII ended, the Germans had several radical types of aircraft and guided missiles under development. The majority were in the most preliminary stages, but they were the only known craft that could even approach the performance of objects reported to UFO observers… http://greyfalcon.us/restored/FLYING%20SAUCERS.htm

Antônio Vilas-Boas (in many English sources misspelled "Villas-Boas") (1934–1992) was a Brazilian farmer who claimed to have been abducted by extraterrestrials in 1957. Though similar stories had circulated for years beforehand, Vilas Boas' claims were among the first alien abduction stories to receive wide attention. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Villas_Boas

On 8 March 1958, Keyhoe, in an interview with Mike Wallace of CBS, claimed deep CIA involvement with UFOs and Agency sponsorship of the Robertson panel. This prompted a series of letters to the Agency from Keyhoe and Dr. Leon Davidson, a chemical engineer and UFOlogist. They demanded the release of the full Robertson panel report and confirmation of CIA involvement in the UFO issue. Davidson had convinced himself that the Agency, not the Air Force, carried most of the responsibility for UFO analysis and that "the activities of the US Government are responsible for the flying saucer sightings of the last decade." Indeed, because of the undisclosed U-2 and OXCART flights, Davidson was closer to the truth than he suspected. CIA, nevertheless held firm to its policy of not revealing its role in UFO investigations and refused to declassify the full Robertson panel report. http://vigilantcitizen.com/latestnews/a-history-of-government-management-of-ufo-perceptions-through-film-and-television/

In 1958 Schauberger was approached by Karl Gerchsheimer and Robert Donner, with an invitation to come to the US to further develop his inventions.  Schauberger spent several months in the US writing articles and drawing sketches. After the project failed by problems with his US-partners he had to sell all his work and patents to buy a flight ticket back home. He returned to Austria and died in Linz, Austria, on September 25, 1958, 5 days after having returned to Linz. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viktor_Schauberger

1961 : April 18, Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs, often referred to as the Brookings Report, commissioned by NASA and created by the Brookings Institution in collaboration with NASA was submitted to the Committee on Science and Astronautics of the United States House of Representatives. It was entered into the Congressional Record and can be found in any library possessing the Congressional Record for that year.  The report has become famous for one short section titled, "Implications of a discovery of extraterrestrial life," which examines the potential implications of such a discovery on public attitudes and values.  The section briefly considers possible public reactions to some possible scenarios for the discovery of extraterrestrial life, stressing a need for further research in this area. It recommends continuing studies to determine the likely social impact of such a discovery and its effects on public attitudes, including study of the question of how leadership should handle information about such a discovery and under what circumstances leaders might or might not find it advisable to withhold such information from the public.

According to later estimates from CIA officials who worked on the U-2 project and the OXCART (SR-71, or Blackbird) project, over half of all UFO reports from the late 1950s through the 1960s were accounted for by manned reconnaissance flights (namely the U-2) over the United StatesThis led the Air Force to make misleading and deceptive statements to the public in order to allay public fears and to protect an extraordinarily sensitive national security project. While perhaps justified, this deception added fuel to the later conspiracy theories and the coverup controversy of the 1970s. The percentage of what the Air Force considered unexplained UFO sightings fell to 5.9 percent in 1955 and to 4 percent in 1956. https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/97unclass/ufo.html

1962 : September 12, US President J.F. Kennedy delivers a speech at Rice University on the subject of the nation's plans to land humans on the Moon. Kennedy announces his continued support for increased space expenditures, saying "we choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard."

1963 - Pres. John F. Kennedy (D) sent a memo to the head of the CIA, seeking documents about UFOs, just 10 days before he was assassinated. In a letter dated Nov. 12, 1963, JFK wanted a review of all UFO intelligence files that might affect national security. On the same day, Kennedy sent a separate memo to NASA, indicating he wanted to cooperate with the then-Soviet Union on outer space activities.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/04/politicians-ufos_n_1897563.html#slide=1543453

1966 : Stanley Kubrick begins shooting 2001 : A Space Odessy; the film took 2 years to complete.  Financed and produced by the American studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the film was made almost entirely in England, using both the studio facilities of MGM's subsidiary MGM British (among the last movies to be shot there before its closure in 1970) and those of Shepperton Studios, mostly because of the availability of much larger sound stages than in the United States. The film was also co-produced by Kubrick's own "Stanley Kubrick Productions". Kubrick, having already shot his previous two films in England, decided to settle there permanently during the filming.

1966 -- Michigan Rep. Gerald Ford (R), before becoming president, called for an official government hearing on the subject of UFOs after his home state experienced a wave of sightings. This was the incident which resulted in the famous use of the phrase "swamp gas" as a possible explanation for UFOs. Ford wrote a letter to the House Armed Services committee that read, in part: "In the firm belief that the American public deserves a better explanation than that thus far given by the Air Force, I strongly recommend that there be a committee investigation of the UFO phenomena. I think we owe it to the people to establish credibility regarding UFOs and to produce the greatest possible enlightenment on this subject." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/04/politicians-ufos_n_1897563.html#slide=1578539

Star Trek is an American science fiction entertainment franchise created by Gene Roddenberry. The franchise began in 1966 with the television series Star Trek later referred to as Star Trek: The Original Series.

1967 : The top secret Report from Iron Mountain was published in 1967; it had taken 4 years to research and was not intended for public consumption but was leaked by a member of the research team.  The report concluded that war, or a credible substitute for war, is necessary if governments are to maintain power in the event global peace is achieved.  The report states "In general, the war system provides the basic motivation for primary social organization. In so doing, it reflects on the societal level the incentives of individual human behavior. The most important of these, for social purposes, is the individual psychological rationale for allegiance to a society and its values.  Allegiance requires a cause; a cause requires an enemy. This much is obvious; the critical point is that the enemy that defines the cause must seem genuinely formidable. Roughly speaking, the presumed power of the "enemy" sufficient to warrant an individual sense of allegiance to a society must be proportionate to the size and complexity of the society. Today, of course, that power must be one of unprecedented magnitude and frightfulness."

In the section describing substitues for the functions of war the Report from Iron Mountain offers the following political solutions: a) An omnipresent, virtually omnipotent international police force. b) An established and recognized extraterrestrial menace. c) Massive global environmental pollution. d) Fictitious alternate enemies. http://www.teachpeace.com/Report_from_Iron_Mountain.pdf

Gus Grissom's lemon

1967, January 22, Gus Grissom, an American astronaut, held an unauthorized press conference in which he told reporters that the United States was "at least a decade away" from even contemplating a lunar mission. He was severely rebuked for giving that interview without permission.  Following this reprimand, Gus Grissom later came out of a water tank reduced gravity simulation of the supposed lunar landing module, and hung a lemon attached to a coat-hanger in front of a NASA emblem to indicate to any cameras present, without speaking, what he and his fellow crew members, Roger Chaffee and Edward White, thought of the Apollo programme.

1967:  January 27, Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee were killed on the launch pad when a flash fire engulfs their command module during testing for the first Apollo/Saturn mission. They are the first U.S. astronauts to die in the line of duty.

Erich Anton Paul von Däniken (/ˈɛrɨk fɒn ˈdɛnɨkɨn/, German pronunciation: [ˈeːʁɪç fɔn ˈdɛːnɪkən]; born 14 April 1935 in Zofingen, Aargau) is a Swiss author best known for his controversial claims about extraterrestrial influences on early human culture, in books such as Chariots of the Gods?, published in 1968. Däniken is one of the main figures responsible for popularizing the "paleo-contact" and ancient astronauthypotheses.

I also hope for the continuing popularity of books like Chariots of the Gods? in high school and college logic courses, as object lessons in sloppy thinking. I know of no recent books so riddled with logical and factual errors as the works of von Däniken.
—Carl Sagan, Foreword to The Space Gods Revealed[16]

In Chariots of the Gods?, Däniken wrote that a non-rusting iron pillar in Delhi, India was evidence of extraterrestrial influence.[17] In a later Playboy interview, when told that the column showed some signs of rust and its method of construction was well understood, Däniken said that since writing the book he had learned of investigations reaching other conclusions, and no longer considered the pillar to be a mystery. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erich_von_D%C3%A4niken

1969 : May 30, MUFON was originally established as the Midwest UFO Network in Quincy, Illinois by Walter H. Andrus, Allen Utke, John Schuessler, and others. Most of MUFON's early members had earlier been associated with Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutual_UFO_Network

1969 : July 20, The American government claimed Apollo 11 was the spaceflight which landed the first humans, Americans Neil Armstrong and Freemason Buzz Aldrin, on the Moon on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC.  It is claimed a third member of the mission, Michael Collins, remained alone in lunar orbit until they returned from the surface about 15 hours later.  All three astronauts returned to Earth safely after travelling in space for 8 days.

The history of Masonry in the space age took another step forward on September 16, 1969, when Astronaut Brother Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr., 32°, visited the House of the Temple in Washington. Accompanied by his father, Edwin E. Aldrin, Sr., also a Scottish Rite Mason, Astronaut Aldrin paused in his busy schedule to greet Grand Commander Smith and to present to him the handmade Scottish Rite flag he had taken to the moon. http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/Blog/?p=24

1972 : Bill Cooper at headquarters of the commander in chief of the US Pacific Fleet, preparing to brief the... came across a synopsis of Operation Majority including a summary of a sub-project named Project Red Light, the purpose of which was to back engineer captured extraterrestrial technology for adaptation in the US space program. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQZBU4RGuTY

1973 : December 13, According to Raëlian beliefs Claude Vorilhon, who was at the time a professional test driver and automobile journalist for the Autopop Magazine, had a first meeting with an extraterrestrial humanoid, an Eloha (plural: Elohim), who landed a UFO within an inactive volcano called Puy de Lassolas near the capital of Auvergne, France (Clermont-Ferrand).

Bill Kaysing wrote a book entitled We Never Went to the Moon, which was self-published in 1974, listing Randy Reid as a coauthor.  Kaysing asserted that during his tenure at Rocketdyne he was privy to documents pertaining to the Mercury, Gemini, Atlas, and Apollo programs, arguing that one does not need an engineering or science degree to determine that a hoax was being perpetrated.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Kaysing

1974 - California Gov. Ronald Reagan (R) was one of four people in a Cessna Citation plane who witnessed an unusual object that was a steady light which elongated and went from a normal cruising speed to a rapid acceleration. Reagan told the Wall Street Journal, "We followed it for several minutes. It was a bright white light, and all of a sudden to our utter amazement, it went straight up into the heavens." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/04/politicians-ufos_n_1897563.html#slide=1543413

1974 -- Pres. Richard Nixon (R) became part of UFO folklore when he allegedly took comedian Jackie Gleason to Homestead Air Force Base in Florida in 1974 and showed him wreckage of a flying saucer as well as the remains of several extraterrestrials.  The story was made public by two people: Gleason's wife, Beverly, told Esquire Magazine that her husband had related this tale to her. And Gleason, who was known to have a strong interest in UFOs, reportedly told the story to author Larry Warren, who had been involved in UFO encounters experienced by many American military personnel at the RAF Bentwaters base in the U.K. in 1980.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/04/politicians-ufos_n_1897563.html#slide=1578547

Star Wars is an American epic space opera franchise that consists of a film series created by George Lucas.  The first film in the series was originally released on May 25, 1977, under the title Star Wars, by 20th Century Fox, and became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon, followed by two sequels, released at three-year intervals. Sixteen years after the release of the trilogy's final film, the first in a new prequel trilogy of films was released. The three prequel films were also released at three-year intervals, with the final film released on May 19, 2005. Reactions to the original trilogy were mostly positive, with the last film being considered the weakest, while the prequel trilogy received a more mixed reaction, with most of the praise being for the final movie, according to most review aggregator websites. Some of the films in the series were also nominated for or won Academy Awards.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars

Close Encounters of the Third Kind (often referred to as Close Encounters or CE3K) is a 1977 science fiction film written and directed by Steven Spielberg. The film stars Richard Dreyfuss, François Truffaut, Melinda Dillon, Teri Garr, Bob Balaban, and Cary Guffey. It tells the story of Roy Neary, a lineman in Indiana, whose life changes after he has an encounter with an unidentified flying object (UFO), and learns that the United States government and an international team of scientific researchers are also aware of these objects.  Close Encounters was a long-cherished project for Spielberg. In late 1973, he developed a deal with Columbia Pictures for a science fiction film.  Close Encounters was released in November 1977 to critical and financial success, grossing out $337,700,000 of the film's $20 million budget.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Close_Encounters_of_the_Third_Kind

1978 : April 24, Time Magazine "Can the "image of God" survive in extraterrestrial life?  Scientists today generally assume, and the mathematical probabilities favor, the existence of intelligent life among the myriad planets wheeling through the cosmos. If that is so, what happens to the Creator-God who made man "in his own image," or to the Christian doctrine that this God took the extraordinary step of becoming man in order to redeem one species of bipedal beings on earth?  Major religious thinkers have yet to give serious attention to the issues posed by what some call "exotheology" (the theology of outer space)."

The Roswell incident was forgotten and almost completely ignored, even by UFO researchers, for more than 30 years. Then, in 1978, physicist and ufologist Stanton T. Friedman interviewed Major Jesse Marcel who was involved with the original recovery of the debris in 1947. Marcel expressed his belief that the military had covered up the recovery of an alien spacecraft. His story spread through UFO circles, being featured in some UFO documentaries at the time.  In February 1980, The National Enquirer ran its own interview with Marcel, garnering national and worldwide attention for the Roswell incident. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roswell_UFO_incident

1981 : March 26-27, William Sims Bainbridge, sociologist and member of the National Science Foundation presented Religions for a Galactic Civilization to the Nineteenth Goddard Memorial Symposium of the American Astronautical Society.  Bainbridge concerns himself predominantly with the development of a new world religion, which he dubs the "Church of God Galactic." Expanding on the characteristics intrinsic to such a church, Bainbridge suggests, "its most likely origins are in science fiction"http://mysite.verizon.net/wsbainbridge/dl/relgal.htm According to Bainbridge, secularization provides the religio-cultural segue for this new religion. Examining the sociological phenomenon of secularization, Bainbridge makes an interesting observation: “Secularization does not mean a decline in the need for religion, but only a loss of power by traditional denominations. Studies of the geography of religion show that where the churches become weak, cults and occultism explode to fill the spiritual vacuum."

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (often referred to simply as E.T.) is a 1982 American science fiction film co-produced and directed by Steven Spielberg, written by Melissa Mathison and starring Henry Thomas, Dee Wallace, Robert MacNaughton, Drew Barrymore, and Peter Coyote. It tells the story of Elliott (played by Thomas), a lonely boy who befriends an extraterrestrial, dubbed "E.T.", who is stranded on Earth. Elliott and his siblings help the extraterrestrial return home while attempting to keep it hidden from their mother and the government.  The film was rereleased in 1985, and then again in 2002 to celebrate the film's 20th anniversary, with altered shots and additional scenes.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E.T._the_Extra-Terrestrial

Freddy Mercury as Machine-Man

Queen's song Radio Ga Ga, recorded in 1983 and released in January 1984, was a commentary on television overtaking the propaganda power of radio in the 1930s and 40s.  The video includes footage of Fritz Lang's Metropolis and the song makes reference to two important propaganda radio events of the 20th century; Orson Welles' 1938 broadcast of H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds in the lyric "through wars of worlds/invaded by Mars", and Winston Churchill's 18 June 1940 "This was their finest hour" speech from the House of Commons, in the lyric "You've yet to have your finest hour".  The Radio Ga Ga video includes a shot of Freddie Mercury's face superimposed on to the head of  Rotwang's Machine-Man symbolising his role as a tool of the Illuminati.

Circa 1984, a series of documents surfaced which some UFOlogists said proved that President Truman created a top secret committee in 1947, Majestic-12, to secure the recovery of UFO wreckage from Roswell and any other UFO crash sight for scientific study and to examine any alien bodies recovered from such sites.  https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/97unclass/ufo.html

Ronald Reagan has often been referred to as a Freemason. President Reagan is not a Freemason although he is an honorary member of the Imperial Council of the Shrine. President Reagan has on numerous occasions been involved in Shrine and masonic functions throughout his career.  The confusion as to his membership arises from a ceremony held in the Oval Office of the White House on February 11th, 1988, when a group of Freemasons presented President Reagan with a certificate of honor from the Grand Lodge of Washington, D.C., then he was made an Honourary Scottish Rite mason. The title of Freemason can only be conferred by a Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons. In Reagan's case this was not done, probably because the ceremonies would have taken a full day to confer and the president's time was limited; therefore,President Reagan should only be referred to as a Shriner or Scottish Rite mason. The Shrine and Scottish Rite are concordant bodies and cannot confer the title Freemason on any person.  http://www.mastermason.com/wilmettepark/pres.html

1985 :  December 4, US President Ronald Reagan said to Fallston High School Students and Faculty "... when you stop to think that we're all God's children, wherever we may live in the world, I couldn't help but say to him, just think how easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from some other species from another planet outside in the universe. We'd forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries and we would find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this earth together"

1987 : September 15, conversation reported by senior editor Fred Barnes in the New Republic, during a luncheon in the White House between the President and Eduard Shevardnatze, during the Foreign Minister's visit to Washington to sign the INF Treaty. "Near the end of his lunch with Shevardnadze," wrote Barnes, "Reagan wondered aloud what would happen if the world faced an 'alien threat' from outer space. 'Don't you think the United States and the Soviet Union would be together?' he asked. Shevardnadze said yes, absolutely. "And we wouldn't need our defense ministers to meet,' he added."

1987 : September 21, US President Ronald Reagan speech to the United Nations General Assembly: "Cannot swords be turned to plowshares?  Can we and all nations not live in peace?  In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask you, is not an alien force already among us? What could be more alien to the universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat of war?"

1987 : February 17, Gorbachev confirmed a conversation with Ronald Reagan during a speech at the Grand Kremlin Palace in Moscow, to the Central Committee of the USSR's Communist Party.  "At our meeting in Geneva, the U.S. President said that if the earth faced an invasion by extraterrestials, the United States and the Soviet Union would join forces to repel such an invasion. I shall not dispute the hypothesis, though I think it's early yet to worry about such an intrusion..."  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZ6k2_pa6Nc

On October 14, 1988, actor Mike Farrell hosted "U.S. UFO Cover-Up: Live!" a two-hour prime-time syndicated television special that was broadcast in North America (and elsewhere). William Moore and Jamie Shandera appeared (among many other guests) and discussed the acquisition of the Majestic 12 documents, and introduced their sources "Falcon" and "Condor", allegedly high-level government intelligence officials. Interviewed in shadow and with masked voices, Falcon and Condor disclosed information about the U.S. government’s involvement in UFOs and alien interaction, UFO crashes and occupant retrievals, and alien biology. This broadcast also included the first known mention of Area 51 on television. Also known as the "strawberry ice cream show" in reference to the informants' remark that a captured EBE enjoyed strawberry ice cream and Tibetan music.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UFO_conspiracy_theory  UFO Cover-Up?: Live!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sA5GpKcJ3zc

Karla was widely respected in the UFO community for her research on alien abduction. A scholar and professional educator, she earned a Ph.D. in Old English studies and taught at the university level in Texas for more than ten years. But in 1988, she and her husband and son endured a shocking series of experiences and recollections that forced them to recognize that they were all abductees. http://www.jeffpolachek.com/about-dr-karla-turner

1988 : May 5, US President Ronald Reagan to reporters as he left the White House for Chicago "But, I've often wondered what if all of us in the world discovered that we were threatened by an outer--a power from another planet. Wouldn't we all of a sudden find that that we didn't have any differences between us at all, we were all human beings, citizens of the world and wouldn't we come together to fight that particular threat?"

Additional witnesses added significant new details, including claims of a huge military operation dedicated to recovering alien craft and aliens themselves, at as many as 11 crash sites, and alleged witness intimidation. In 1989, former mortician Glenn Dennis put forth a detailed personal account, wherein he claimed that alien autopsies were carried out at the Roswell base. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roswell_UFO_incident

1992 : Steven Greer started The Disclosure Project, which is a nonprofit research project that purports to expose the existence of a US government cover-up of information relating to unidentified flying objects (UFOs).

1993 : Laurance Rockefeller, along with his niece, Anne Bartley, the stepdaughter of Winthrop Rockefeller and the then-president of the Rockefeller Family Fund, he established the UFO Disclosure Initiative to the Clinton White House. They asked for all UFO information held by the government, including from the CIA and the US Air Force, to be declassified and released to the public. The first and most important test case where declassification had to apply, according to Rockefeller, was the Roswell UFO incident.

The X-Files is an American science fiction drama television series, which is a part of The X-Files franchise, created by Chris Carter. The program originally aired from September 10, 1993 to May 19, 2002, spanning nine seasons and 202 episodes. The show was a hit for the Fox network, and its characters and slogans, such as "The Truth Is Out There", "Trust No One", and "I Want to Believe" became popular culture touchstones in the 1990s. Seen as a defining series of its era, The X-Files tapped into public mistrust of governments and large institutions, and embraced conspiracy theories and spirituality as it centered on efforts to uncover the existence of extraterrestrial life. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_X-Files

In 1994, Serge Monast published Project Blue Beam (NASA), in which he detailed his claim that NASA, with the help of the United Nations, was attempting to implement a New Age religion with the Antichrist at its head and start a New World Order, via a technologically simulated Second Coming of Christ. He also gave talks on this topic.[3] Other conspiracy theorists have noted[4] the similarity of Project Blue Beam to the plots of Gene Roddenberry's unreleased 1975 Star Trek movie treatment The God Thing and the 1991 Star Trek: The Next Generation episode Devil's Duehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serge_Monast

1994 : September, the US Air Force issued a report that categorically denied the Roswell incident of 1947 was UFO-related.

Author Renato Vesco revived the wartime theory that the foo fighters were a new Nazi secret weapon in his work 'Intercept UFO', reprinted in a revised English edition as 'Man-Made UFOs: 50 Years Of Suppression' in 1994. Vesco alleges that the foo fighters were in fact a form of ground-launched automatically guided jet-propelled flak mine called the Feuerball (Fireball). The device, operated by special SS units, apparently resembled a tortoise shell in shape, and flew by means of gas jets that spun like a Catherine wheel around the fuselage. Miniature klystron tubes inside the device, in combination with the gas jets, created the foo fighters' characteristic glowing spheroid appearance. A crude form of collision avoidance radar ensured the craft would not crash into another airborne object, and an onboard sensor mechanism would even instruct the machine to depart swiftly if it was fired upon. The purpose of the Feuerball, according to Vesco, was two-fold. The appearance of this weird device inside a bomber stream would (and indeed did) have a distracting and disruptive effect on the bomber pilots; and Vesco alleges that the devices were also intended to have an offensive capability. Electrostatic discharges from the klystron tubes would, he states, interfere with the ignition systems of the bombers' engines, causing the planes to crash. Although there is no hard evidence to support the reality of the Feuerball drone, this theory has been taken up by other aviation/ufology authors, and has even been cited as the most likely explanation for the phenomena in at least one recent television documentary on Nazi secret weapons. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foo_fighter

On the weekend of 18th-19th March 1995, the Disney Corporation conducted a sneak telecast of a UFO documentary without any prior announcement in five TV viewing areas (Connecticut, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida and California). This amazing documentary, featuring Disney Chief Executive Officer Michael Eisner, put the reputation of the Disney Corporation behind the documentary's many startling statements, such as the following:  "Mankind is in the midst of the most profound event in history: actual contact with intelligent life from other planets." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trjKcTXZy5w   http://www.energeticforum.com/psychic-paranormal/6569-disney-ufo-documentary.html

Alien autopsy was the name given to a hoaxed medical examination and dissection of a dummy depicted in a film released in the 1990s by a London-based entrepreneur Ray Santilli. He presented it as an autopsy on the body of an extraterrestrial being recovered from the crash of a "flying disk" near Roswell, New Mexico on June 2, 1947.  The 17-minute black-and-white film of poor quality surfaced in the 1990s, and Santilli claimed he had received it from an unidentified, former military cameraman. In 2006 he admitted the film was not authentic but a staged "reconstruction" of footage he claimed to have viewed in 1992, which had deteriorated and become unusable by the time he made his film. Santilli claimed that a few frames from the original were embedded in his film, but he never specified which ones. In 1995, before being exposed as a hoax, the film was sold to television networks and broadcast in more than 32 countries.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alien_autopsy

Yevgeny Podkletnov[1] (Russian: Евгений Подклетнов) is a Russian engineer, formerly affiliated with the Materials Science Department at the Tampere University of Technology, Finland.  Born in Russia in 1955, Podkletnov graduated with a master's degree from the University of Chemical Technology, Mendeleyev Institute, in Moscow; he then spent 15 years at the Institute for High Temperatures in the Russian Academy of Sciences. Later he received a doctorate in materials science from Tampere University of Technology, and worked at the university, on superconductors, until 1996. He is best known for his controversial work on a so-called "gravity shielding" device.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugene_Podkletnov

1996 : April 19, Dateline NBC conducted an interview with Freemason Astronaut Edgar Mitchell during which he discussed meeting with officials from three countries who claimed to have had personal encounters with extraterrestrials. He offered his opinion that the evidence for such "alien" contact was "very strong" and "classified" by governments, who were covering up visitations and the existence of alien beings' bodies in places such as Roswell, New Mexico. He further claimed that UFOs had provided "sonic engineering secrets" that were helpful to the U.S. government.

1996 : May, in a 3-hour interview with Art Bell on the Coast to Coast radio program, Freemason Astronaut Edgar Mitchell claimed no personal knowledge of alien spacecraft landing in Roswell, New Mexico; that the notion of there being alien-built structures on the moon was "pure fantasy," and that there were no anomalies seen on Apollo 14 sugg2008 : July 25, in an interview with Fox News Freemason Astronaut Edgar Mitchell clarified that his previous comments about aliens and UFOs did not involve NASA, but quoted unnamed sources, since deceased, at Roswell who confided to him that the Roswell incident did involve an alien craft. Mitchell also claims to have subsequently received confirmation from an unnamed intelligence officer at the Pentagon.esting extra-terrestrial life.

Independence Day is a 1996 American military science fiction disaster film about an alien invasion of Earth.  The film was scheduled for release on July 3, 1996, but due to the high level of anticipation for the movie, many theaters began showing it on the evening of July 2, 1996, the same day the film begins. The film's combined domestic and international box office gross is $816,969,268, which at one point was the second-highest worldwide gross of all-time ...refugees take the captured alien to Area 51, where Air Force One has already landed. Area 51 conceals a top secret facility housing a recovered spacecraft and alien bodies stored since the Roswell incident in 1947.

Arguments about the existence of Die Glocke originated in the works of Igor Witkowski. His 2000 Polish language book Prawda O Wunderwaffe (The Truth About The Wonder Weapon, reprinted in German as Die Wahrheit über die Wunderwaffe), refers to it as "The Nazi-Bell". Witkowski wrote that he first discovered the existence of Die Glocke by reading transcripts from an interrogation of former Nazi SS Officer Jakob Sporrenberg. According to Witkowski, he was shown the allegedly classified transcripts in August 1997 by an unnamed Polish intelligence contact who said had access to Polish government documents regarding Nazi secret weapons.[1] Witkowski maintains that he was only allowed to transcribe the documents and was not allowed to make any copies. Although no evidence of the veracity of Witkowski's statements have been produced, they reached a wider audience when they were retold by British author Nick Cook, who added his own views to Witkowski's statements in The Hunt for Zero Point. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Die_Glocke

1997 -- Ariz. Gov. Fife Symington (R) was one of thousands of eyewitnesses to the historic Phoenix Lights, a mass UFO sighting, which he didn't admit was real until 10 years later, and which he felt was an extraterrestrial vehicle.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/04/politicians-ufos_n_1897563.html#slide=1543540

8 September 2001 LONDON (Reuters) - The U.S. military may have conducted serious research into anti-gravity based on Nazi studies, a top defense journalist suggests in a new book. In ``The Hunt for Zero Point,'' journalist Nick Cook says, based on a decade's research, he believes by the 1950s the U.S. was seriously working on anti-gravity ``electrogravitics'' technology, which would lift and propel vehicles without wings or thrust.  http://rense.com/general13/djsk.htm

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon is a 2001 documentary film written, produced and directed by Nashville, Tennessee-based filmmaker Bart Winfield Sibrel.  The film is narrated by British stage actress Anne Tonelson.

However, he does appear prom inently in the similarly toned Fox Television Network special, Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon?  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Funny_Thing_Happened_on_the_Way_to_the_Moon

2004 : Freemason Astronaut Edgar Mitchell told the St. Petersburg Times that a "cabal of insiders" in the U.S. government were studying recovered alien bodies, and that this group had stopped briefing U.S. Presidents after John F. Kennedy.  He said, "We all know that UFOs are real; now the question is where they come from." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/04/politicians-ufos_n_1897563.html#slide=1543574

2004 -- New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D), and 2008 presidential candidate, calls on the U.S. government to declassify all Roswell UFO documents. Richardson wrote: "The mystery surrounding this crash has never been adequately explained. Clearly, it would help everyone if the U.S. government disclosed everything it knows. The American people can handle the truth -- no matter how bizarre or mundane."

Astronauts Gone Wild is a 2004 film made by Bart Sibrel, an amateur filmmaker from Nashville, Tennessee, United States who charges that the six Apollo moon landings in the 1960s and 1970s were elaborate hoaxes.  Sibrel made this film, 53 minutes in length, as a follow-up to his 2001 video A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon, which accuses NASA of falsifying the Apollo 11 mission photography.  In Astronauts Gone Wild, Sibrel confronts nine Apollo astronauts.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astronauts_Gone_Wild

2005 -- Former Pres. Bill Clinton (D), speaking in Hong Kong, discussed UFOs, Roswell and Area 51: "The Roswell thing, I think, really was an illusion - I don't think it happened. I did attempt to find out if there were any secret government documents that reveal things, and if there were, they were concealed from me, too. I wouldn't be the first president that underlings have lied to or that career bureaucrats have waited out.  But there may be some career person, sitting around somewhere, hiding these dark secrets, even from elected presidents. But, if so, they successfully eluded me, and I'm almost embarrassed to tell you I did try to find out." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/04/politicians-ufos_n_1897563.html#slide=1543410

2005 : February ABC's Peter Jennings' UFO special http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1614846387438905636

In early September 2005, Hellyer made headlines by publicly announcing that he believed in UFOs. On 25 September 2005, he was an invited speaker at an exopolitics conference in Toronto, where he told the audience that he had seen a UFO one night with his late wife and some friends. He said that, although he had discounted the experience at the time, he had kept an open mind to it. He said that he started taking the issue much more seriously after watching ABC's Peter Jennings' UFO special in February 2005.  Watching Jennings' UFO special prompted Hellyer to finally read U.S. Army Colonel Philip J. Corso's book The Day After Roswell, about the Roswell UFO Incident, which had been sitting on his shelf for some time. Hellyer told the Toronto audience that he later spoke to a retired U.S. Air Force general, who confirmed the accuracy of the information in the book. In November 2005, he accused U.S. President George W. Bush of plotting an "Intergalactic War".  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Hellyer

2006 : April 7, Time passed, and during 2005 rumour had it that Santilli was involved in making a movie about the AA film. Not a ‘serious’ movie but a comedy, directed by Jonny Campbell and starring the modern equivalent of Pinky and Perky, former child actors Ant and Dec (Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly – top right). But why was the man who discovered ‘The Greatest Story Ever Sold’ selling out by making a comedy, even one billed as being “based on true events”? The reason soon became clear: Santilli was finally going to reveal the real ‘truth’ about the AA film, and it could be no coincidence that this ‘truth’ was to be revealed just two days before the film hit the cinemas on 7 April.  http://www.forteantimes.com/features/articles/97/santillis_alien_autopsy_film.html

October 2007 -- Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D) entered the UFO culture during one of the 2007 Democratic presidential debates, by admitting he had seen a UFO. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,306616,00.html

According to MacLaine in her book, Sage-Ing While Age-Ing, the liberal-leaning politician had a “close sighting” with a UFO while visiting the Graham compound where the actress lives in virtual anonymity. “Dennis found his encounter extremely moving. The smell of roses drew him out to my balcony where, when he looked up, he saw a gigantic triangular craft, silent, and observing him. It hovered, soundless, for 10 minutes or so, and sped away with a speed he couldn’t comprehend. He said he felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind.” http://blog.seattlepi.com/thebigblog/2007/10/31/kucinich-reveals-ufo-sighting-in-our-state-during-debate/

2008 : May 13, Writing in the Vatican newspaper, the astronomer, Father Gabriel Funes, said intelligent beings created by God could exist in outer space.  The search for forms of extraterrestrial life, he says, does not contradict belief in God.  The official Vatican newspaper headlines his article 'Aliens Are My Brother'.

2008 : July 23, Freemason Astronaut Edgar Mitchell was interviewed on Kerrang Radio by Nick Margerrison. Mitchell claimed the Roswell crash was real and that aliens have contacted humans several times, but that governments have hidden the truth for 60 years stating, "I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we've been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real." In reply, a spokesman for NASA stated, "NASA does not track UFOs. NASA is not involved in any sort of cover up about alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe. Dr Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinions on this issue."

2009 : July 22, Freemason Astronaut Buzz Aldrin referred to a "Phobos monolith" in an interview with C-Span: "We should go boldly where man has not gone before. Fly by the comets, visit asteroids, visit the moon of Mars. There's a monolith there. A very unusual structure on this potato shaped object that goes around Mars once in seven hours. When people find out about that they're going to say 'Who put that there? Who put that there?' The universe put it there. If you choose, God put it there…"

2009 : November 16, the Guardian newspaper reported "Vatican to welcome aliens.  The Catholic church is comfortable with the idea of aliens. Good news for those who believe in compassion for extra-terrestrials...  The excellent sounding Father Jose Funes sees no contradiction between Catholic doctrine and astrobiology, which makes me like him rather a lot: ' ... if we can consider some earthly creatures as 'brothers' or 'sisters', why could we not speak of a 'brother alien'? He would also belong to the creation.' "

From 2010 we are observing the largest increase of alien invasion films produced since the decade after World War 2. Indeed, 2008/09 movies of The Avatar and District 9kicked off the beginning of the mass release of alien invasion movies.  http://adventofdeception.com/alien-invasion-movies-of-the-1950s/#ixzz27p44kWm7

Most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) employ a fixed wing design like that of a traditional plane. But these designs offer limited maneuverability and payload capacity, require a runway to takeoff and land, and are unable to hover. Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) UAVs get around these problems, usually by employing rotors like a helicopter. Now UK-based company AESIR has developed a VTOL UAV that has no external rotating parts, instead relying on a phenomenon known as the Coanda effect to generate lift. http://www.gizmag.com/aesir-unmanned-aerial-vehicle/12813/   http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=KXVtUCABiv8&NR=1

2011 : 23 January, The fifth annual Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF) closed yesterday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Panel presentations and forum discussions took place over January 22-25, 2011. While this conference would normally be of little personal interest to me, this year’s roster of invited speakers at the conference caught my attention. Ufologist Stanton Friedman, journalist and well known British UFO authority Nick Pope, venture capitalist and well known UFO authority Jacques Vallee, and well known science writer, brilliant physicist, and History Channel UFO commentator Michio Kaku were invited to speak at this year’s GCF. The title of their presentation? Contact: Learning From Outer Space.  This is a very interesting and welcome new development.  What other familiar faces were invited to speak at the Saudi GCF? The list is a long one, but to name only a few: former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was invited to speak, the Saudi Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, and former U.S. President Bill Clinton.

Scientists discover habitable Earth-like planet.  A rocky world orbiting a nearby star has been confirmed as the first planet outside our solar system to meet key requirements for sustaining life.  Gliese 581d orbits on the outer fringes of the star's "Goldilocks zone", where it is not so hot that water boils away, nor so cold that water is perpetually frozen. Instead, the temperature is just right for water to exist in liquid form.

2011 : "The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race," Phil Larson of the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy wrote in a statement published Friday (Nov. 4).
