Edgar Mitchell, who will be 85 years old in a month, is one of an élite group of astronauts.
A veteran of the Apollo 14 mission in 1971, Mitchell is the 6th man to have walked on the Moon.
Jasper Hamill reports for the UK’s Mirror, Aug. 11, 2015, that Mitchell claims that aliens came to Earth to stop a nuclear war between America and Russia.
In an interview with Mirror Online, he said U.S. military had seen UFOs during weapons tests, and strange crafts flying over missile bases and the famous White Sands facility where the world’s first ever nuclear bomb was detonated in 1945.
Mitchell grew up in New Mexico near White Sands and Roswell — the site of one of the world’s most famous purported UFO encounters.
He said, “You don’t know the area like I do. White Sands was a testing ground for atomic weapons – and that’s what the extraterrestrials were interested in. They wanted to know about our military capabilities. My own experience talking to people has made it clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to war and help create peace on Earth.”
Mitchell said he had heard similar stories from people who manned missile bases during the Cold War with the Soviet Union: “I have spoken to many Air Force officers who worked at these silos during the Cold War. They told me UFOs were frequently seen overhead and often disabled their missiles. Other officers from bases on the Pacific coast told me their [test] missiles were frequently shot down by alien spacecraft. There was a lot of activity in those days.”
The astronaut has been outspoken about his belief in aliens ever since he landed on the surface of the moon, becoming one of the most prominent figures in the worldwide UFO community.
Mirror Online asked Nick Pope, a former UK Ministry of Defence UFO researcher, whether he believed Mitchell’s claims.
Pope said, “Edgar Mitchell is an honourable and truthful man, who I’ve had the privilege of meeting. But so far as I’m aware, most of his information on this issue comes not from things he’s experienced himself, but from things he’s been told by others. Clearly, because of who he is, he’s had access to government, military and intelligence community personnel at the highest level, but because – quite understandably – he won’t name his sources, we can’t be certain these people were being straight with him, or indeed that they were privy to any classified information about UFOs.”
Pope said the idea that peace-loving extraterrestrials are here to warn humanity about our destructive ways” is popular with those who take a New Age view of the UFO phenomenon. “It’s a nice thought, but if I’m being sceptical, I’d point out that it’s almost exactly the plot of the classic 1951 sci-fi movie The Day the Earth Stood Still. There have certainly been some intriguing UFO sightings around nuclear facilities, and around military bases more generally, but an alternative explanation is that some of these sightings are attributable to espionage activity involving secret spy planes or drones. Given that the Universe is around 14 billion years old, if we’re being visited, it’s unlikely we’re dealing with a civilisation just a few hundred years ahead of us, so stories of aliens managing to disrupt a few of our weapons tests are far-fetched. Chances are they’d be millions of years ahead of us and could do anything they wanted to.”
In 2010, retired U.S. Air Force officer Stanley A. Fulham predicted that on October 13, 2010, a fleet of extraterrestrial vehicles would hover for hours over major cities of Earth — the first in a series of visits intended to avert a planetary catastrophe from levels of carbon-dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere having reached critical mass. With the benefit of hind sight, we all know that the UFO visit never happened. (See “Fleet of UFOs Coming to Earth October 13“)
According to a 1992 Roper Poll of a representative sample of 6,000 U.S. adults, with a sampling error of plus (+) or minus (-) 1.4%:
2% of the adult population in the United States (one out of 50 Americans, i.e., 5.16 million of total U.S. population of nearly 258 million in 1992) had experienced being abducted by aliens.
18% said they had awakened paralyzed, with a sense of a strange “presence” in the room.
The most interesting facet of the alien abduction phenomenon are accounts of abductees who succeeded in repelling the “alien” or demon by invoking the name of Jesus Christ. CE4 Research Group has a website with first person testimonies of those encounters. Below is a sample that I culled from a fifth of the testimonies:
“In 1973 my husband Coleman and I and our two baby boys lived in Virginia. Coleman was working for Christianity Today as the advertising manager and I was a stay-at-home mom doing some freelance artwork. One night I awoke with a start. My eyes flew open like a close-up in a horror movie when the dead person comes back to life. I was totally awake with the sense that something was very wrong. That sense moved very quickly to terror. I was paralyzed, unable to move anything except my eyes. To my left, over my husband’s sleeping body, I could see three figures gliding into the room…. I tried to scream at Coleman to wake up but I couldn’t. My vocal cords were paralyzed. Then I began to pray. I tried to call out, ‘JESUS.’ Again nothing would come out of my mouth other than grunts. Once more I tried to say ‘JESUS.’ More grunts. Finally a garbled ‘Jesus’ came out. At the name of Jesus the beings dissipated into the air into little triangles just like a visual effect….
Then over twenty years later Coleman was writing a pilot script for a television series that was supposed to be about all sorts of strange phenomena. He gave me a book on alien abduction and asked me to read it and see if there might be any story ideas in it that he could use. As I read the book it struck me how similar these people’s experiences were to mine. Then I came across a drawing of one person’s alien abductor. It was eerie. He had drawn the same beings that had come into my room.”
“It began five years ago with strange things happening in my house. I had…been involved with Tarot on a high level and ALWAYS could predict events for people…. I didn’t believe in anything really. Flashlights would fall off the table, my dog would growl at nothing, I had bad dreams. Things were scary. Then one night it all came down on me. I ‘awoke’ in bed without being able to move at all, not even an eyebrow. Some ‘thing’ was in my room with me…. Then it began to come toward me…then the thing jumped at my chest, but not before I screamed in my mind, ‘Jesus help me, God help me!’ And the ‘thing’ was thrown back in utterly agonizing pain and the sound it made was as close to hell as any human ears could ever hear…”
“I am the adult Sunday school teacher at Christian Lighthouse Church in Mount Clemons Michigan and I recently taught on ‘spiritual warfare’ on Sunday morning January 24th, 2004. I cited many scriptures on the power of Jesus’ name on controlling and defeating demonic activity…. After my lesson, a newer member of our congregationcame up to me and related that she had awoke one night to find herself paralyzed and even unable to talk.She felt something applying pressure to her upper torso as if some invisible ‘thing or person’ was sitting on her chest. She called out to Jesus in her mind and immediately found herself free.She then began to pray out loud in Jesus name. This just seems to me to be further confirmation that this is a wide spread problem and that only true Christian believers have the power, through Jesus name, to combat these attacks.”
“I am thinking it was May or June I started experiencing ‘seeing things move out of the corner of my eyes’ again one night. And I realized I might soon have to deal with another abduction experience, even though I knew what it was… I knew it was evil spirits… so Igot on the AR and then your CE4 website right then and read the guide to self-deliverance on there, and verbally rebuked outloud in the name and authority of Jesus Christ. Just what is written in the guide to self-deliverance, ‘The Lord Jesus Christ Rebuke You, The Lord Adonai Rebuke You! …’ And I stopped seeing things move out of the corner of my eyes. I haven’t had an abduction experience since, that was May/June of 2007.”
“I read in Genesis that there really were beings called the Nephilim, and what they really are. And then one night I saw an alien, (and it seemed as if I knew him), at the side of my bed and I said, ‘I know what you are! Go away! Jesus is my Lord!’ And it got angry and it was as if it was being suctioned out of my room right through the wall. I never saw it again.“
“What sounded like thousands of voices that would come to me almost every night. At that time I was probably about 10, and figured I must be crazy. My parents told me it was my imagination. These experiences happened a long time ago. I am now 21 and a devout Christian and have had no experiences since. I don’t really remember when I first started hearing the voices and when they finally left me. I remember I used to call for Jesus to help me. The voices would slowly fade whenever I did. I now recognize this as most likely a demonic attack.”
“I am from the Island nation of Trinidad and Tobago and am a preacher’s kid. So I’ve grown up in the church and seen a fare share of demonic attacks and the power of God at work against the forces of darkness…. One night while in bed, I had a major break though. I finally realized who I was in Christ and that no evil spirit should ever be bothering me like this…. That night I had another visitand this time I was able to muster up enough strength to move my lips and say ‘by the blood of Jesus I rebuke you’ and instantly they left me and to this day they never returned.“
“…experiences I did have as a young Christian in my early 20’s and over the past 10 years all of the signs and symptoms were there. The fear, the paralyzing feeling, the feeling of a presence in the room, it was all there. I just didn’t think of it as an abduction experience. To me it was a demon attack. As I called out in the name of Jesus and rebuked the spirit, the fear, the paralyzing feeling and the feeling of the presence left. I realized that what I did experience was in fact demon attacks. I learned early about demon attacks and how they would try to pull me away from my JESUS. It is only now that I see and understand that the alien abduction phenomena is one more way that Satan is trying to gain a foothold in this world.”
“When I fell back asleep this time the UFO came again hovering in the same corner. This time I saw a an evil spirit materialize next to my bed even though I could not perceive its shape. Before I was able to speak it tried to physically attack me by probing my neck and I was paralyzed a moment and could not speak. So I lifted my pinky up in the air and spelt out “Jesus help”. Immediately the evil spirit released its grip and I yelled “leave in the name of Jesus and do not come back again”. The evil spirit left and was gone. “
These accounts, of course, imply that the alien abductors are not interstellar UFO space travelers, but are demons.
Cydonia is a region in the northern hemisphere of the planet Mars that has attracted both scientific and popular interest because it contains the “Face on Mars” feature. Some planetologists believe that the northern plains may once have been ocean beds and that Cydonia may once have been a coastal zone.
The Viking 1 and Viking 2 orbiters first took images, 18 in total, of the Cydonia region. In one of the images (035A72) taken by Viking 1 on July 25, 1976, a 1.2-miles long mesa, situated at40.75° north latitude and 9.46° west longitude, had the appearance of a humanoid face. Viking chief scientist Gerry Soffen dismissed the “face on Mars” as a “trick of light and shadow”. However, a second image, 070A13, also shows the “face”, although it was acquired 35 Viking orbits later at a different sun-angle from the 035A72 image. This latter discovery was made independently by Vincent DiPietro and Gregory Molenaar, two computer engineers at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
Some commentators, most notably Richard C. Hoagland, believe the “face on Mars” and other features, such as apparent pyramids, to be parts of a ruined city — evidence of a long-lost Martian civilization.
Face on Mars
More than 20 years after the Viking 1 images were taken, new and better-resolution images of the Cydonia region were taken by a succession of spacecraft, including NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor (1997–2006) and Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (2006-), and the European Space Agency’s Mars Express probe (2003-). According to NASA, the higher-resolution images show that the face isn’t a face at all, but just a blurry mound — “a natural looking Martian hill whose illusory face-like appearance depends on the viewing angle and angle of illumination“. Below is a higher-resolution of the “face on Mars” taken by the Mars Express in 2006, accompanied by NASA’s sardonic and quite patronizing text:
Higher-resolution image of “face on Mars” taken by Mars Express in 2006
Since it was originally first imaged, the “face” has been accepted by scientists as an optical illusion, an example of the psychological phenomenon of pareidolia — the human propensity to see discernible objects in random patterns and shapes. The original Viking 1 images of Cydonia show not only “the face,” but also what appeared to be pyramids (see below).
Intriguingly, a recently discovered declassified CIA document chronicles just that — pyramids on Mars, and more.
The document “Mars Exploration” is dated May 22, 1984, and consists of the transcript of an interview conducted that day by a CIA monitor with a remote viewer (RV).
Note: In remote viewing, the remote reviewer is asked to give information about an unseen and distant object, event, person or location, which the remote reviewer purportedly can access by using extrasensory perception (ESP). In 1975, the U.S. government sponsored the $20 million Stargate Project research, in an attempt to determine any potential military application of psychic phenomena, including remote viewing. In 1995, the CIA hired the American Institutes for Research (AIR) to perform a retrospective evaluation of the results generated by the Stargate Project. The AIR determined that remote viewing experiments lacked proper controls and replicability, and there is no scientific evidence that remote viewing exists. The program was terminated that same year because it failed to produce any actionable intelligence information.
Immediately before the CIA interview, the remote viewer (RV) was given a sealed envelope containing a 3×5 card on which was written the following information:
The planet Mars
Time of interest approximately 1 million years B.C.
The envelope remained sealed throughout the interview and was not opened until AFTER the interview, which means that the remote viewer did not know the subject and time about which he was asked to “view” were, respectively, Mars and 1 million years B.C.
Throughout the interview, the CIA monitor would verbally give the RV various geographic coordinates and ask what the RV “saw” at those coordinates, using the information (Mars; 1 million years B.C.) contained in the sealed, unopenedenvelope. This was what the RV said he “saw”:
(1) At 40.89° north and 9.55° west (recall that the geographic coordinates of Viking 1’s “face on Mars” are 40.75º north and 9.46º west, i.e., Cydonia):
The RV saw an oblique view of a very high, yellowish pyramid “sitting in a large depressed area,” and of “severe clouds” or dust storms — the “after effect of a major geologic problem”. So the CIA monitor instructs the RV to go back to the time indicated in the sealed envelope (1 million years B.C.), before the “major geologic problem”. The RV reports that “the mountains of dirt” disappeared. Instead of the (later) dust storms, he saw smooth “large flat surfaces” — huge “megalithic” “walls” — and ” a shadow” of “very tall” and thin people. The RV explains that by “shadow” he meant the people were “only a shadow” — “It’s as if they were there and they’re not there anymore”.
The CIA monitor tells the RV to go back to a time when the people “are there”. The RV reports that he sees “very large, thin and tall” people “wearing strange clothes”. The monitor then tells the RV to stay in the same time period, but move to a different physical space at a new set of geographic coordinates.
(2) At 46.45º north and 353.22° east: The RV saw “deep inside” a cavern or canyon, a “steep wall” that seems “to go on forever”, and “very large structures” “like a rabbit warren” of “really huge” “rooms”, with a “very high” ceiling and very wide walls.
(3) At 45.86º north and 354.1º east: The RV saw “the end of a very large road” and a very large Washington Monument-like obelisk.
(4) At 35.26º north and 213.24º east: The RV finds himself in the middle of “a very, very, very large” circular basin, ringed by very tall and ragged mountains.
(5) At 34.6º north and 213.09º east: The RV saw “a cluster of squares up and down” which seem connected, and “something very white or reflects light”.
(6) At 34.57 north and 212.22 east: The RV saw “a radiating pattern” of strange “intersecting” aqueducts.
(7) At 80º south and 64º east: The RV saw “huge” “pyramids” designed to be “like shelters from storms”. Inside the pyramids are “chambers” with no furnishings — “strictly functional” places for sleeping or “hibernation” from “savage storms” by very tall, very large, thin people dressed in “a real light silk” that’s not flowing but “cut to fit”. The people are “ancient” and are “dying” — “past their time or age”. They are “very philosophic about it,” “looking for a way to survive”. But “they just can’t seem to find their way out” and are “hanging on,” waiting for the return of a group of them who had gone to find a new place to live. But the “environment” on Mars is corrupt and “failing very rapidly”. Asked about the cause of the failing environment, the RV says he sees “a globe that goes through a comet’s tail” or a cosmic “river”.
The CIA monitor then instructs the RV to ask the Martian person “if he knows who you are and is there any way you can help him in his present predicament”. The RV replies that the Martian doesn’t know who the RV is, thinks the RV is a hallucination, and says “they must just wait”.
The RV says the Martians who went to find a better place left in a large “boat” with “round” “shiny metal” walls. The CIA monitor tells the RV to go with them on their journey and find out where they went. The RV gets the impression of a “very volatile” “really crazy place with volcanoes and gas pockets and strange plants” — “like going from the frying pan into the fire”.
At that point, the CIA monitor tells the RV to listen to the sound of his voice into present time, and ends the interview.
Here’s a YouTube video about the CIA “Mars Exploration” document:
Meanwhile, netcitizens have combed through the many images of Mars taken by satellites and discovered strange objects that don’t look natural, including:
(a) Bright lights on Mars:
(b) Vehicle tracks:
(c) A reflective rectangular object on the face of a rock:
(d) A Stonehedge-like rock formation:
(e) An obelisk (note the long shadow cast by the shiny square):
(f) Massive walls:
(g) Martian fungi that corroded the metal wheels of NASA’s Curiosity Rover:
(h) Animal-like fossils: a rodent, a lizard, a trilobite, and a bunny rabbit that moves and then disappears!:
Here’s the video from which I took the above screenshots (except the light and the rodent):
This morning’s Drudge Report has a weird pic of Hillary Clinton above the featured story of Hillary Clinton’s appearance on last night’s ABC Jimmy Kimmel late-night talk show. Here’s a screenshot I took of Drudge:
Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel, Hillary promised that, barring any national security risk, if elected president she would open to the public the government’s files on the mysterious Area 51 in the Nevadan desert. There have been persistent rumors that Area 51, a U.S. Air Force facility the existence of which has only recently be acknowledged by the government, is the site of an UFO crash in the mid-1950s.
Although Drudge Report does not credit the source of the Hillary pic, Matt Drudge is not known to post photocopied pictures. Thus, we can assume that the photo of Hillary has not been altered.
Take a good look at her eyeballs. Note the strange color (chartreuse!) of her irises, and shape of her pupils.
Her eyes look like those of a lizard . . . or of a fictional dragon named Smaug, as envisioned in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Note Smaug’s oddly-shaped pupils.
Our eyes are windows into our souls.
Here are Hillary’s eyes again, without the faux smile:
They look mad, insane.
Or, as FOTM reader Steven Broiles observes, possessed. ~Eowyn
While looking at NASA images of Mars taken from the Spirit Rover’s Pancam ‘Everest’ panorama on October 1 to 3, 2005, Waring spotted what appears to be a strange rock that resembles a human head with a nose, chin, eyes and hair. He writes, “From the way its standing up I would say that it is a full statue, but is buried from the shoulders down.”
Another UFO enthusiast used a software program to “clean up” the image of the head. He writes on UFO Sightings Hotspot: “By cleaning the image in a software program, I discovered that this relic has an uncanny resemblance to the United States president, Barack Obama.”
The original image is taken from the Spirit Rover’s Pancam ‘Everest’ panorama, acquired on sols 620 to 622 (October 1 to 3, 2005) from a position in the Columbia Hills at the true summit of Husband Hill on the Martian surface.
The image was released online by NASA, and even turned into an interactive panorama.
The summit region of Mars is a broad plateau about 100 meters (300 feet) above the surrounding plains of Gusev crater, consisting mostly of outcrop rocks and windblown drifts.
The image is the latest in a series claiming to show faces on Mars, the first of which is the notorious simian-like “Face on Mars” in the Cydonia region of the red planet.
In a video, Waring expresses bafflement that NASA used arrows to point out various features on the Mars landscape, including the head: “This rover found some objects and NASA was pointing them out with different arrows. I was just thinking ‘wow Nasa’s really not helping us at all find any of these objects on Mars’ and bam, there is an arrow pointing right to the face.”
NASA says the arrows are to point out different kinds of rocks on Mars.
So is the Obama head on Mars a phenomenon called pareidolia? — the psychological propensity of humans to see a pattern in random data?
But then I’m reminded of a post I did nearly 3 years ago, “Obama went to Mars?!,” Jan. 11. 2012.
There is an agency within the U.S. Department of Defense called the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, better known by its acronym DARPA.
Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, DARPA is charged with developing new military technology. The agency focuses on short-term (2 to 4 years) projects and is independent from other more conventional military R&D, reporting directly to senior Department of Defense management. DARPA has around 240 personnel and a budget of $3.2 billion. Since its founding in 1958, DARPA has been responsible for funding the development of many technologies that have had a major effect on the world, such as computer networking.
DARPA has six program offices, all of which report to the DARPA director. The current DARPA director (since 2009) is Regina E. Dugan.
Some of DARPA’s current active projects are:
DARPA (under its first name, ARPA) was created 1958 in response to the 1957 Soviet launching of Sputnik. Given its beginning and its mission to develop cutting-edge military technology, the news that two DARPA scientists claim they once served as chrononauts (time-traveling, universe-exploring government agents)may not be completely outlandish.
But what is outlandish is that the two scientists say they had been accompanied on a Mars mission by a teenage Barack Obama, then named Barry Soetoro.
Spencer Ackerman reports for science and technology magazine Wired, Jan. 3, 2012:
As a young man in the early 1980s, Obama was part of a secret CIA project to explore Mars. The future president teleported there, along with the future head of Darpa.
That’s the assertion, at least, of a pair of self-proclaimed time-traveling, universe-exploring government agents. Andrew D. Basiago and William Stillings insist that they once served as “chrononauts” at Darpa’s behest, traversing the boundaries of time and space. They swear: A youthful Barack Obama was one of them. […]
As “Barry Soetero,” the 19-year-old Obama was one of 10 youths selected to secretly teleport to and from Mars, forming a band of interplanetary Teen Titans. Regina Dugan, the director of Darpa, was another member.
Between 1981 and 1983, Obama is supposed to have visited Mars twice, by way of a teleportation chamber called a “jump room.” Basiago, a fellow chrononaut, told the website Exopolitics that he saw Obama “walk back to the jump room from across the Martian terrain.” To acknowledge his comrade, Obama is said to have told Basiago, “We’re here” — apparently, “with some sense of fatalism.”
It is not known what exactly Obama did on Mars. […] “Simply put, your task is to be seen and not eaten,” an elder chrononaut, retired Army Maj. Ed Dames, is alleged to have told a young Obama.
Wired’s Ackerman concluded his article with:
Officially, the White House says Obama never went to Mars.
Karen Hudes describes herself as a graduate of Yale Law School who had worked in the legal department of the World Bank for more than 20 years before she was fired for blowing the whistle on corruption inside the World Bank. At the time when she was fired, her position was that of Senior Counsel.
There is no Wikipedia entry on Hudes, but her whistleblowing was confirmed by Joel Skousen, the founder and chief editor of World Affairs Brief, a weekly news-analysis service. The Economic Collapse blog says that according to Hudes, the élite use a very tight core of financial institutions and mega-corporations to dominate the planet. The goal is control. They want all of us enslaved to debt, they want all of our governments enslaved to debt, and they want all of our politicians addicted to the huge financial contributions that they funnel into their campaigns. Since the élite also own all of the big media companies, the mainstream media never lets us in on the secret that there is something fundamentally wrong with the way that our system works.
In an interview with the Flow of Wisdom online radio, which was uploaded to YouTube on Nov. 20, 2013, Karen Hudes said FLPOS Mooch, aka Michael Obama, is being blackmailed, after having been caught in a honey trap.
In the poor-quality audio below, beginning at the 0:45 mark, you’ll hear Hudes say:
“His [Barack Obama’s] wife is being blackmailed . . . because she has fallen for some, what they call, ‘honey trap’ . . . in a hotel with two-way mirror.She’s just been compromised. And there are other things involving him [Barack]. His mother was a CIA agent, and he was raised in a way that made him a person who would trap people in hotels. That was his mother’s job in the CIA: she would trap people in hotels. ”
Wikipedia defines “honey trapping” as “the private investigative practice of evaluating the fidelity of partners in marital and nonmarital romantic relationships. Investigators are employed by wives, husbands, and other partners usually when an illicit romantic affair is suspected of the ‘target’, or subject of the investigation.Occasionally the term may be used for the practice of creating an affair for the purpose of taking incriminating photos for use in blackmail. A honey trap is primarily used to get evidence.” The Oxford Dictionary has a simpler definition. Honey trap is “A stratagem in which irresistible bait is used to lure a victim.”
Of course, in Mooch’s case, we don’t know if the “honey trap” refers to her marital infidelity or that she is being blackmailed for, as a viewer of the video on YouTubeRyan Hagel succinctly puts it, “She has a dick!!!!”
It must be pointed out that in another more recent interview with Future Money Trends on conspiracies and the global economy, which was uploaded to YouTube on March 7, 2013, Karen Hudes said there’s another hominid alien species on Earth with huge elongated skulls, who manipulate human beings and who are hiding, among other places, in the Vatican.
As evidence, Hudes referred us to the Pope’s ceremonial dome-shaped mitre hat. Of course, Hudes ignores the fact that popes, including the present Pope Francis, have been seen and photographed bare-headed withoutthe mitre hat, revealing their normal-shaped very human skull. LOL
Hudes’ alien disclosure begins approx. 23:00 into the video.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, conducted on July 16-17, 2014, finds that whereas 60% of U.S. adults think Obama is an American citizen, as many as 40% or 4 out of every 10 do not believe their president is an American citizen, which of course violates the U.S. Constitution’s Article II.
Of those Americans who are skeptical of Obama’s U.S. citizenship:
23% outright don’t believe he’s a U.S. citizen, including:
41% of Republicans, 21% of unaffiliated Independents, and 11% of Democrats!
Another 17% aren’t sure if he is a U.S. citizen, including:
Over 20% of Republicans and Independents, and 7% of Democrats.
The survey also probed Americans’ belief/disbelief in other conspiracies, including:
32% of Americans believe President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by more than one shooter.
24% or one-in-four adults are convinced that the U.S. government knew in advance about the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and did nothing to stop them.
20% of Americans believe that a UFO carrying space aliens on board crashed near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
14% think the U.S. faked the moon landing.
One interesting finding is that in general, men are more likely than women to believe most of the conspiracy theories. ~Eowyn
In March 2014, a U.S. Marine in Afghanistan took this video of a mysterious unidentified flying object (UFO) blasting a Taliban camp to smithereens.
The video, allegedly shot sometime in March, was uploaded to YouTube on May 9, 2014, and instantly went viral, collecting 750,000 hits in just a few days.
The video, showing a strange triangular UFO in the sky, reportedly was shot by a soldier standing next to a stationary armored column.
A split-second later, huge explosions erupt as the mysterious UFO hit the purported Taliban camp, sending up plumes of smoke.
After the smoke clears, the cameraman zooms in to shoot a close up view of the triangular-shaped aircraft, which looks unlike any known U.S. military drone.
KGRA radio shows the video is a hoax, created by blending two separate videos into one:
A video of a purported UFO over Virginia, USA, released on October 10, 2013, which is also a hoax.
A video of an explosion in Afghanistan, without any UFO, taken in October 2007, which has been “mirrored” or flipped, with the armored vehicle now on the right side of the screen, instead of on the left:
Sadly, KGRA’s debunking video has only 2,439 views as of my writing this post, which goes to show human beings not only are gullible, they actually prefer to be bamboozled instead of know the truth.
Area 51, aka Groom Lake or the Nevada Test and Training Range, is a remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base located in the barren desert of southern Nevada, 83 miles north-northwest of Las Vegas. (Edwards Air Force Base itself is located approximately 22 miles northeast of Lancaster, in the western Mojave Desert in Southern California.)
Situated at its center, on the southern shore of Groom Lake, is a large military airfield. The base’s current primary purpose is officially undetermined; however, based on historical evidence, it most likely supports development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems. The intense secrecy surrounding the base has made it the frequent subject of conspiracy theories and a central component to unidentified flying object (UFO) folklore. Although the base has never been declared a secret base, all research and activities in Area 51 are Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS/SCI).
Long the object of obsession of UFOlogists, they now finally have a break. After years — decades — of denial that it even exists, our feral gummint is finally acknowledging that Area 51 exists, but isn’t saying what’s inside the mysterious military installation. The Associated Press reports, Aug. 15, 2013:
The CIA is acknowledging the existence of Area 51 in newly declassified documents.
George Washington University’s National Security Archive obtained a CIA history of the U-2 spy plane program through a public records request and released it Thursday.
National Security Archive senior fellow Jeffrey Richelson reviewed the history in 2002, but all mentions of Area 51 had been redacted.
Richelson says he requested the history again in 2005 and received a version a few weeks ago with mentions of Area 51 restored.
Officials have already acknowledged in passing the existence of the facility in central Nevada where the government is believed to test intelligence tools and weapons.
Richelson believes the new document shows the CIA is becoming less secretive about Area 51’s existence, if not about what goes on there.
Although the CIA now admits there really is an Area 51, it is still shrouded in secrecy. I searched for “Area 51” and “Groom Lake” on Google Map, but got only this blanked and blurred-out image (I added the red arrows and labels). Click image to enlarge
I then searched for Nellis Air Force Base, a unit of which is the Nevada Test and Training Range (aka Area 51), and got this Google Map image (click to enlarge): ~Eowyn
