- Death by gunshot to the head. Death by probable poisoning.
Death by probable strangulation. Deaths possibly by implantation of deadly
viruses. No one lives former. Yet the recent suspicious deaths of UFO investigators
Phil Schneider, Ron Johnson, Con Routine, Ann Livingston and Karln Turner,
as well as the deaths of a host of researchers in the past, only seem to
add emphasis to a reality with which many of the more aware UFOIogists
are now quite familiar: not only is UFO research potentially dangerous,
but the life span of the average serious investigator falls far short of
the national average. (read more)
- Mysterious and suspicious deaths among UFO investigators
arc nothing new. In 1971, the well-known author and researcher Otto Binder
wrote an article for Saga magazine's Special UFO Report titled "Liquidation
of the UFO Investigators:' Binder had researched the deaths of "no
less than 137 flying saucer researchers, writers, scientists, and witnesses'
who had died in the previous 10 years, "many under the most mysterious
- The late astronomer Dr. M.K. Jessup was the first to
reveal details of the Philadelphia Experiment-he died a few months later.
- The selected cases Binder offered were loaded with a
plethora of alleged heart attacks, suspicious cancers and what appears
to be outright examples of murder. We will have occasion to refer to many
of these cases, but first let us take a look at more recent evidence of
highly suspect deaths among present day researchers.
- Phil Schneider
- No one has shook up more those who have been following
UFO fact and rumor the past low years than Phil Schneider. Schneider died
Januarv 17, 1996, reportedly strangled by a catheter found wrapped around
his neck. If the circumstances of his death seem highly controversial,
thev are matched by the controversy over his public statements uttered
recently before his death.
- Dr. James McDonald tried to convince Congress to look
into the UFO situation. He died after shooting himself a short while later.
- Phil Schneider was a self-taught geologist and explosive
expert. Of the 129 deep underground facilities Schneider believed the U.S.
government had constructed since World War II, he claimed to have worked
on 13. Two of these bases were major, including the much rumored bioengineering
facility at Dulce, N.M. At Dulce. Schneider maintained, "grey"
- humanoid extraterrestrials worked side by side with American technicians.
In 1979, a misunderstanding arose. In the ensuing shootout, 66 Secret Service,
FBI and Black Berets were killed along with an unspecified nurnber of "greys.
It was here he received a beam-weapon blast to the chest which caused his
- If Schneider is telling the truth, he obviously broke
the code of imposed silence to which all major black-budget personnel are
subjected. The penalty for that misstep is presumably termination. Schneider
in fact maintained that numerous previous attempts had been made on his
life, including the removal of lug nuts from one of the front wheels of
his automobile. He had stated publicly he was a marked man and did not
expect to live long. Some of Schneider's more major accusations are worthy
- (1) The American government concluded a treaty with "grey"
aliens in 1954. This mutual cooperation pack is called the Grenada Treaty.
- (2) The space shuttle has been shuttling in special metals.
A vacuum atmosphere is needed for the rending of these special alloys,
thus the push for a large space station.
- (3) Much of our stealth aircraft technology was developed
by back-engineering crashed ET craft.
- (4) AIDS was a population control virus invented by the
National Ordinance Laboratory, Chicago, Illionois.
- (5) Unbeknownst to just about everyone, our government
has an earthquake device: The Kobe quake had no pulse wave; the 1989 San
Francisco quake had no pulse wave.
- (6) The World Trade Center bomb blast and the Oklahoma
City blast were achieved using small nuclear devices. The melting and pitting
of the concrete and the extrusion of metal supporting rods indicated this.
(Remember, Schneider's forte, he claimed, was explosives.)
- Finally, Phil Schneider lamented that the democracy he
loved no longer existed. We had become instead a technocracy ruled by a
shadow government intent on imposing their own view of things on all of
us, whether we like it or not. He believed I l of his best friends had
been murdered in the last 22 years, eight of whom had been officially disposed
of as suicides.
- Ivan T. Sanderson passed away unexpectedly. He was head
of a major UFO/paranormal group!
- Whatever we think of Phil Schneider's claims, there is
no denying that he was of peculiar interest to the FBI and CIA. According
to his widow, intelligence agents thoroughly searched the premises shortly
after his death and made off with at least a third of the family photographs.
- Ron Rummel
- Another recent disturbing case is the death of Ron Rummel,
ex-air force intelligence agent and publisher of the Alien Digest, on August
6, 1993. Rummel allegedly shot himself in the mouth with a pistol. Friends
say, however, that no blood was found on the pistol barrel and the handle
of the weapon was free of fingerprints. Also, according to information
now circulating, the suicide note left by the deceased was written by a
left-handed person. Rummel was right-handed. Perspiration on the body smelled
like sodium pentothal, or so it is alleged.
- The Alien Digest ran to seven limited issues, all now
almost impossible to acquire. One thing is certain. Ron Rummel's magazine
was touching on sensitive issues such as the predator/prey aspect of the
alien/human relationship and the use of humans as food and recyclable body
parts. Did Rummel cross a forbidden line? It would seem so. But which line,
and where? Interestingly enough, one of Rummel's friends was Phil Schneider,
and the two had been collaborating.
- Ron Johnson
- An equally disturbing and more recent death is that of
Ron (Jerrold) Johnson, at the time MUFON's Deputy Director of Investigations.
Johnson was 43 years old and, it would seem, in excellent health. He had
just passed a recent physical examination with the proverbial flying colors.
However, on June 9, 1994, while attending a Society of Scientific Exploration
meeting in Austin, Texas, Johnson died quickly and amid very strange circumstances.
During a slide show, several people sitting close to him heard a gasp.
When the lights were turned back on, Johnson was slumped over in his chair,
his face purple, blood oozing from his nose. A soda can, from which he
had been sipping, was sitting on the chair next to him. Did Ron Johnson
die of a stroke? Possibly. An allergic reaction? Another possibility.
- Some of the more outstanding facts of Ron Johnson's life
might easily lead a more skeptical-minded person to a tentative conclusion
that his death was probably neither accidental nor natural. For instance,
his most recent job was with the Institute of Advanced Studies, purportedly
working on UFO propulsion systems. He had been formerly employed by Earth
Tech, Inc., a private Austin, Texas, think tank headed by Harold Puthoff.
It would appear he held high security clearances, traveled frequently between
San Antonio and White Sands, and had attended 2 secret NATO meetings in
the last year or so. One of those meetings, it is rumored dealt with ET
- Although advanced in years, there are some who believe
that Dr. Hynek's death was because of "strange circumstances,"
due to the high number of researchers who have died of brain tumors or
cancer. If all or most of the facts offered above are accurate, one thing
seems obvious: Johnson was walking both sides of the street. This in itself
was highly dangerous, and he may have paid the ultimate price in an attempt
to serve more than one master.
- As for exactly what killed Ron Johnson, a number of possibilities
beyond natural ones present themselves. It is quite easy in this day and
age to induce strokes through chemicals or pulsed radiation. It is just
as easy, and has been for some time, to induce heart attacks and other
physical debilitations, such as fast-acting cancers. The best bet is that
Ron Johnson was eliminated by a quick-acting toxin, perhaps a nerve agent.
As for exactly why he was killed, we will probably never know. The autopsy,
somewhat ludicrously, has been officially classified as inconclusive.
- Ann Livingston
- As a side note, a nurse returning home from Austin shortly
after Johnson's death reported a similar death-situation aboard her plane.
When she tried to move rearward to offer her assistance, she was forcefully
restrained from doing so. Could it be, one wonders, that some agent, through
an accident, was the victim of his own machinations? The idea strikes a
nice note of poetic justice, if in fact that were the scenario.
- Another death involving elements of high strangeness
is that of Ann Livingston, who died in early 1994 of a fast-form of ovarian
cancer. Livingston made her living as an accountant, but she was also a
MUFON investigator and had in fact, published an article entitled "Electronic
Harassment and Alien Abductions" in the November 1993 MUFON Journal.
The article was highly critical of Julianne McKinney, directorof the Electronic
Surveillance Project of the Association of National Security Alumni. McKinney
discounts U FO phenomena, believing that what passes for such is most often
one kind of governmental ploy or another, whether in the form of experimental
machinery or experimental psychology.
- Some facts which seem relevant to the case stand out.
At 7:15 AM, December 29th 1992, Livingston's apartment close to O'Hare
airport, in Chicago, Illinois, was lit up brightly by a silverwhite flash.
She was accosted later in the day while in her apartment parking lot by
5 MIBs (Men in Black) which she described as being almost faceless and
carrying long, flashlight-like black objects. She was rendered unconscious.
What, we must ask, assuming her story is true, was done to her at this
time, and wh'? And did it have anything to do with her later rapidly-advancing
- It is not a well-known fact that Ann Livingston had been
previously abducted. Her friend, Fran Heiser, has stated that Ann Livingston
had met two handsome people, a man and woman, on an earlier trip to Mexico.
To Livingston's surprise, the man told her that the attractive young lady
she was meeting was in fact her daughter.
- Karla Turner
- Could genital intrusions from past UFO abductions have
poisoned in some way Ann Livingston's system? That is exactly the suspicion
Karla Turner (author of Maquerade of Angels, Taken, and Into the Fringe)
had about the breast cancer that preceded her death during the summer of
1996. Both publicly and privately, Karla Turner held up the specter of
alien retaliation for statements she made in print, especially in Masquerade
of Angels. How much her suspicions were founded in reality we will probably
never know. (A good site on Karla Turner is http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Crete/9923/karla.html)
- Who or what is killing UFO investigators now and in the
past? Probably some of the deaths presented here-that look at first glance
so suspicious---are in fact natural or accidental or self-inflicted because
of stress or mental imbalances. But, as Otto Binder noted more than 25
years ago, there are so many. Pure common sense, and good logic, should
lead us to believe that the high incidence of premature death in a field
which has a limited number of investigators is very disproportionate compared
to the population at large.
- Spider Web of Causes
- What we may have IS a concatenation, a spider web, of
interweaving threads which are causal and often, in fact, deadly. One thread
is the activities of the US (and other) intelligence agencies. Another
thread is possible ET involvement. A third thread is the involvement of
certain PSI-tech think tanks and private PSI/PK practitioners, including
negative occultists. A possible fourth thread is highly reactionary religious
cults which feel they are carrying out the will of God. It is more than
likely that one or more or all of the above agencies are responsible in
whole or in part for many of the deaths from the recent past, which have
already been mentioned and many of those remaining cases from the present
to the more distant past, some of which we will now explore.
- Danny Casolaro
- Danny Casolaro, an investigative reporter looking into
the theft of Project Promise software, a program capable of tracking down
anyone anywhere in the world, died in 1991, a reported suicide. Casolaro
was also investigating several UFO "NO-Nos" Pine Gap, Area 51
and governmental bioengineering.
- Mae Bussell
- Not long ago, Mae Bussell, a gutsy, no-holds-barred,
investigative radio host died of a fast-acting cancer just like Ann Livingston
and Karla Turner. Bussell was acutely interested in UFOlogy.
- Deck Slayton
- Deck Slayton, the astronaut, was purportedly ready to
talk about his UFO experiences, but cancer also intervened.
- Brian Lynch
- Brian Lynch, young psychic and contactee, died in 1985,
purportedly of a drug overdose. According to Lynch's sister, Geraldine,
Brian was approached approximately a year before his death by an intelligence
operative working for an Austin, Texas, PSI-tech company. Geraldine said
they told Brian they were experimenting on psychic warfare techniques.
After his death, a note in his personal effects was found with the words
"Five million from Pentagon for Project Scanate."
- Capt. Don Elkin
- In the '80s Eastern Airlines pilot Capt. Don Elkin committed
suicide. He had been investigating the UFO coverup for over 10 years and,
at the time, was deep into the study of the Ra material with ('aria Rucker.
There are reports of negative psychological interferences having developed
during this latter investigation.
- Bizarre Death of Scientists
- Certainly nothing is stranger, and breeds speculation
more quickly, than the 30-some-odd deaths associated with SDI (Star Wars)
research at Marconi Ltd. in England between approximately 1985-1988. Here
in capsulated form is a list of a few of the more bizarre deaths:
- Roger Hill, a designer at Marconi Defense Systems, allegedly
commits suicide with a shotgun, March 1985.
- Jonathan Walsh, a digital communications expert employed
by GEC, Marconi's parent firm, falls from his hotel room, November 1985,
after expressing fear for his life.
- Ashad Sharif, another Marconi scientist, reportedly tied
a rope around his neck, and then to a tree, in October 1986, got behind
the wheel of his car and stepped on the gas with predictable results.
- In March of 1988, Trevor Knight, also associated with
Marconi, died of carbon monoxide poisoning in his car.
- Peter Ferry, marketing director of the firm, was found
shocked to death with electrical leads in his mouth (August 1988).
- Also during the same month of the same year, Alistair
Beckham was found shocked to death with electric leads attached to his
body and his mouth stuffed with a handkerchief. He was an engineer with
the allied firm of Plessey Defense Systems.
- And, finally, but by no means the sole remaining death
in this unique cluster, Andrew Hall was found dead in September of 1988
of carbon monoxide poisoning.
- What, you may be asking, does SDI research have to do
with the deaths of UFO investigators? Theoretically, quite a lot. If, as
many investigators have hypothesized, Star Wars research was initiated
with the dual purpose of protecting "us" against Soviet aggression
and/or the presence of UFO craft in our atmosphere, then several possibilities
arise. Most compelling is the idea that the soviet KGB, realizing that
the Western powers were on the verge of perfecting a high-powered beam-weapon
that could be used from outer space or atmospheric space against them,
marshaled a last-gasp, all-out espionage offensive to slow or destroy the
project. If this scenario is true, and the weapon was indeed successfully
developed, we have an explanation for the collapse of the Soviet Union
("Surrender or you might be incinerated").
- Other explanations have been offered. For example, scientists
working on the project discovered the true nature of the research they
were involved with and the overwhelming stress led them to suicide. Or
they discovered that their real collaborators were "greys," or
Western politicians working with/for grey aliens. One thing seems obvious.
Something went terribly wrong at Marconi. Scientists usually don't commit
the kinds of bizarre, "unscientific" suicides we find here.
- One other possibility is that a contingent of unfriendly
ETs got wind of what GEC and Marconi and its affiliates were up to and,
to protect themselves, created enough psychic trauma within the minds of
many of the scientists to drive them to suicide. But if this is so, why
have the deaths stopped? Has the project been shelved? Highly unlikely.
The best bet is that the project was completed, roughly about 1988, and
whatever it is, beam-weapon or otherwise, it is now operational.
- Certainly neither the public at large, and not even UFOlogists
generally, seem thoroughly aware of the real risks UFO investigators run.
In fact those UFOlogists who are aware of the suspicious deaths of some
of their colleagues in the 50s and 60s, seem to believe that whatever forces
and agencies that were then responsible have softened their tactics in
the `80s and `90s. The evidence, as we have indicated, does not seem to
support such a conclusion. There is no doubt, however, that the `50s and
`60s produced some strange goings-on.
- Jessup and McDonald
- Undoubtedly the most intriguing (and perhaps appalling)
deaths in UFOlogy were those of Dorothy Kilgallen, M.K. Jessup and Dr.
James McDonald - the former an alleged accident, the latter two purported
suicides. The details of these deaths, despite official pronouncements
to the contrary, are disturbing to say the least. Each of the three individuals
seemed to have much to live for, all were successful, and everyone of them
was deeply immersed in the relatively new UFO-phenomena proglem.
- Dorothy Kilgallen
- Dorothy Kilgallen was the most famous syndicated woman
journalist of her day. Stationed in England in 1954 - 55, and privy to
the highest levels of English society and its secrets, she wired two unusual
dispatches which may have contributed to her death. The first, sent in
February 1954, mentioned a "special hush-hush meeting of the world's
military heads" scheduled to take place the following summer. The
1955 dispatch, which barely preceded her death from an alleged overdose
of sleeping pills and alcohol (a la Marilyn Monroe), quoted an unnamed
British official of cabinet rank, `We believe, on the basis of our inquiry
thus far, that saucers were staffed by small men-probably under four feet
tall. It's frightening, but there is no denying the flying saucers come
from another planet.'
- Whatever the source (rumored to be the Earl of Mountbatten),
this kind of leak in the atmosphere of the mid- 50s was an unacceptable
leak. It is well to recall that the secret CIA-orchestrated Robertson Panel
had met in 1953 and issued the Robertson Report. Briefly summarized, this
document-and the attitudes reflected there - represented a new hard-line
attitude to covering up all significant UFO phenomena. The year 1953 and
the meeting of the Robertson Panel truly initiated the UFO coverup as we
know it today, with a few extra dollops having been added.
- Did Dorothy Kilgallen actually commit accidental suicide?
There appears to be an excellent chance she had help.
- Dr. James McDonald, senior physicast, Institute of Atmospheric
Physics and also professor in the Department of Meteorology at the University
of Arizona, died in 1971 purportedly of a gunshot wound to the head. There
is no one who had worked harder in the 60s than McDonald to convince Congress
to hold serious, substantial subcommittee meetings to explore the UFO reality
of which he was thoroughly convinced. He was definitely a thorn in the
side of those who maintained the official coverup and, needless to say,
his passing to them would be a blessing.
- McDonald, allegedly depressed, shot himself in the head.
But, alas, he didn't die. He was wheelchair-ridden but somehow, several
months after his first attempt, he allegedly got in an automobile, drove
to a pawnshop, purchased another pistol from his wheelchair, drove to the
desert and did himself in. How convenient, one might say, for his adversaries.
And McDonald, there can be no doubt, had made enemies. The question is:
How much did these enemies aid and abet the demise of this most worthy
and influential campaigner?
- Astronomer MIL Jessup
- When astronomer and archaeologist M. K. Jessup allegedly
committed suicide in Dade County Park, FL., in 1959 certain alarm bells
should have gone off. There is no doubt the well-known author of such influential
works as The Case for the UFO and The Expanding Case for the UFO had been
depressed. Things had not been going well for him, and he had, it must
be admitted, indicated his gloom to close friends, Ivan Sanderson, the
biologist, and Long John Nebel, the well-known New York City radio host.
Sanderson reported him disturbed by "a series of strange events"
which put him "into a completely insane world of unreality."
- Was the reality Jessup was faced with at the time "completely
insane" or were there, perhaps, forces driving Jessup to the edge,
forces with a plan? Anna Genzlinger thoroughly investigated his death.
Her conclusion: "He was under some sort of control." Remember,
these were the days of secret governmental mind-control experiments which
have only recently been uncovered.
- Certain facts about the case raise redflags. For example,
no autopsy was performed, contrary to the state law. Sergeant Obenclain,
who was on the scene shortly after Jessup's body was discovered, has said
for the record, "Everything seemed too professional." The hose
from the car exhaust was wired on; and it was, strangely, washing machine
hose. Jessup died at rush hour, with more than the usual amount of traffic
passing by. He had been visited by Carlos Allende three days before his
death and according to his wife, had been receiving strange phone calls.
We know the navy was very much interested in what he was doing; and we
all know, or should know, it is the ONI (Office of Naval Investigations)
that has been in the forefront, from the very beginning, of the UFO coverup.
- And what of particular interest was Jessup investigating
at the time? Something that was top secret and would remain so for some
time: the Philadelphia Experiment.
- Frank Edwards
- Frank Edwards, the noted news commentator, died of an
alleged heart attack on June 24, 1967, on the 20th anniversary of the Kenneth
Arnold sighting. Was that coincidence?
- Probably not. Several other prominent UFOlogists died
the same day, Arthur Bryant, the contactee, Richard Church, chairman of
CIGIUFO and the space writer, Willie Ley. The circumstances surrounding
the death of Edwards, who like James McDonald was pushing for meaningful
Congressional subcommittee meetings, raise huge questions. It so happens
that a "World UFO Conference" was being held in New York City
at the Commodore hotel on that very day in June, chaired by UFO publisher
and author Gray Barker. Barker stated publicly that he had received two
letters and a telephone call threatening that Frank Edwards, who was not
in attendance, would not be alive by the conference's end.
- It definitely looks like someone was sending a message.
As an unhappy sequel to this account, Rep. Rouse, who had been supporting
Edwards in his campaign for Congressional attention to the UFO issue, died
of a similar heart attack shortly afterwards.
- The annals of UFOlogy are frighteningly filled with the
deaths of UFOlogists from unusual cancers, heart attacks, questionable
suicides and all manner of strange happenings. Did former Secretary of
Defense James Forrestal really commit suicide as purported by jumping out
a hotel window at about the time saucers may have been crashing down in
the southwestern desert? Was UFO writer Damon Runyon, Jr.'s suicidal plunge
off a Washington D.C. bridge in 1988 really an act of will? What really
happened to Dr. B. Noel Opan who, in 1959, after an alleged visit by MIBs,
disappeared, as did Edgar Jarrold, the Australian UFOlogist, in 1960.
- How do we explain the rash of heart attacks that took
so many: Frank Edwards, Rep. Rouse, author H. T. Wilkins, Henry E Kock,
publicity director of the Universal Research Society of America, author
Frank Scully and contactee George Adamski? How do we correlate accurately
the large number of purported suicides, including: Rev. Della Larson, contactee,
author Gloria Lee (Byrd), Marie Ford, UFO enthusiast who discovered Larson's
body, researcher Doug Hancock, and, more recently, researcher Feron Hicks?
What do we do with the inordinately large number of cancer deaths which
pepper the UFO field and burn doubtful holes in our credulity: Canadian
researcher Wilbert B. Smith, Brazilian researcher Dr. Olavo Fontes, Jim
and Coral Lorenzen (photos are earlier in this article), and the deaths
of biologist Ivan Sanderson and CUFOS founder James A. Hynek.
- Certainly not all of these individuals, as well as many
other less prominent researchers that space limitations do not allow us
to mention, were marked for termination. Many, perhaps most, died natural
deaths. But so many of the cases leave doubt; some seem to be branded by
the mark of Cain. We know now how easy it is to induce strokes and heart
attacks through chemicals, pulsed beams and microbes. We have learned that
the federal government was (and still is) involved in PSI-tech research.
An individual's mind is rather easily manipulated, and minds can be subtly
beaten like putty into despair and madness.
- UFOlogy is not the safe, hobbyistic pastime some would
like it to be. There is danger, real danger in sticking your nose in places
where the powers that be don't want you to be. Many of the deaths related
above are highly suspicious. Some appear to be outright murder.
- What is the cause, who the villain? Again, it must be
emphasized that the "problem" is complex. Rogue intelligence
agencies, negative ET groups, freelancing PSI-tech firms, and reactionary
cultist groups all seem to play, or to have played, a part in the more
nefarious UFO-related events described here including the possible homicides
of UFO researchers in past decades as well as more recently. It seems highly
likely that sometimes one or more of these agencies may be working together,
either with or without the knowledge of the other's presence.
- What can we do about such a state of affairs? Several
things. We can inform ourselves like good democratic citizens. And we can
inform others. We can and must raise a hue and cry when we suspect foul
play. If we are to protect our very lives and the democratic hopes we say
we cherish, then we must not go, silent and ignorant, into the night, pretending
an innocence we have not earned.
- Note - This article was first posted a number of years
ago...but is worth a second look. -ed
I hope Dr. Kitei has adequate security...
- As for me, I'm getting ready to flex my ufological bungee
cords once again! Cleats and hardware are metaphorically magnafluxed, cords
are checked and treated, and rip-stop anklers are snuggly fitted around
my demure jumper's mukluks... preflight is complete. All the required equipment
necessary to live to fight another day... prepared for action! Let's, really,
- ...I might shoot myself from a cannon out over the abyss
for this one... it seems it may be justified. I sense some lift out there
in the hoary reaches of an unending space provided...
- ...A running leap into the ufological abyss ~does~ seem
appropriate given the confluences of conspicuous circumstances in (and
out of) a 'painstream' so disturbed and distorted by corruption and dishonesty
that it can, only fallaciously, be referred to as a 'mainstream' anymore,
at all. Still, some new light is communicated to me by Dr. Kitei through
the 'official' and obfuscating smog.
- But, what 'confluences' and 'conspicuous circumstances'
am I talking about?
- I think Dr. Kitei perceives the following, too. Swirling
together into serendipitous if unusual conjunction, and accelerating as
they swirl, are cutting edge discoveries in the physical sciences, theologies,
psychologies, and philosophies et sig al. This is compounded and multiplied
by information technology, communicational ease and efficiency, high-speed
data transfer, and massive data storage. All of the preceding is further
compounded as a ready result of the realization by more and more individual
folks all the freaking time... that the 'official' versions of 'how things
are' may not serve their best interests.
- They don't.
- Our socio-biological cultural view is stubbornly and
irrationally homocentric and therefore wrong (...we'd be much better off
culturally, ~socially~ functioning under an auspices that we were ~not~
alone in the expanding 'multi-verse'... even if we 'knew' we were...think
about it...). Our manufacturing base is geared to quick profit taking,
planned obsolescence, environmental pollution, and energy wastage... and
is therefore wrong (...we'd be well served by energy saving hybrid mechanisms
built well enough to be heirlooms rather than rusting heaps replaced every
few years...) Our facile education system is contrived to mass-produce
blandly docile employees instead of critical thinkers and is therefore...
~so~ wrong! ...Our reflex denial of multiple levels of ufological evidence,
from the physical through the photographic to the historical and the personal...
is wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong -- a slow, agonizing, and fretful demise
and degradation for all humanity, I suspect.
- Verily, we resist our cultural evolution and upcoming
birth like we've dug in spiked boot-heels from the womb side of our evolutionary
cervix. This is a metaphor demanding misery and death for all concerned,
surely. Moreover, it is clear that the 'many' presently suffer for these
(all too convenient) boot-heels of the duplicitous 'few'... in a reflexive
and self-facilitating denial.
- Just lately, though, it may be that Dr. Kitei is in position
to apply a little humanistic 'jiffy-lube' to those aforementioned boot-heels.
Cosmic midwives might, hopefully, be standing at the ready.
- Dr. Lynne Kitei is an internationally-acclaimed physician
and health educator, a leading professional in the "cutting-edge era"
of early disease detection and prevention, and is Chief Clinical Consultant
at the (world-renowned!) Arizona Heart Institute's Imaging/Prevention/Wellness
Center in Phoenix, Arizona. Additionally, Dr. Kitei has appeared as the
resident health reporter for the NBC TV affiliates in Philadelphia, PA...
and in Phoenix, Arizona, as medical consultant for KPHO TV News in that
city... and has been featured on USA Cable, FOX TV News (...she ~can~ be
forgiven for that, I suppose...), and MSNBC. Dr. Kitei also wrote and appeared,
all over the world, in more than a hundred informational health segments
- Oh... and yes... while a _genuine_ skeptic... and in
no way 'looking' for them at the start... she has seen more than a ~few~
UFOs. That's right.
- On the night of March 13, 1997 in Phoenix, Arizona, a
plethora of sober persons (numbered in the thousands!) were outside, anyway,
to cage a look at the (still ~very~ mysterious) Hale-Bopp comet... then
in the evening sky. An infamous comet was not the ~only~ thing in the
firmament that night! This 'other thing' was ~also~ witnessed by many
- Truth. Lynne Kitei was one of those thousands.
- What she saw and photographed was to change her life
completely, cause her to reassess her entire worldview, and then bravely
risk a substantial reputation to make some kind of sense of what she and
many, many others had witnessed on that fateful night. She remains glad,
I think, that she's buckled up for the ride, forgetting how dangerous this
ride might be for her... professionally? With regard to her reputation?
- She was ~naturally~ very curious, right off the bat,
about this... ~huge~ occurrence, reader, as would you! When she made casual
inquires, altogether rational inquires I add, she was rebuffed, mildly
ridiculed, lied to, made the butt of insulting sarcasm, and otherwise assiduously
stonewalled! But Kitei is a scientist you see, and a suspect "status
quo" was ill served when it tried to shine her on in the beginning
of the quest imposed ~upon~ her.
- ...Authoritarians never learn, do they. They never see
that their disrespectfully repressive approach is always their eventual
undoing. Mash something down 'here', and it only pops up over 'there'...
just meaner for the mashing. I digress...
- The stonewallers tried to blow-off the wrong lady, indeed,
friends and neighbors. A scientist like I said, she was also well keyed
into professional media production, was a medical doctor's "talking-head"
on NBC, and at one time she was even featured in a film with Nicolas Cage...
- Can you smell, 'connected', good reader? Are you starting
to rub your hands together, as I have? This lady has connected teeth in
~addition~ to substantial chops. ~I'm~ popping corn!
- See, Dr. Kitei took a hard 90 degree turn right into
enigma's yawning scary maw and, end-running the whole of our fatuous 'officialdom',
refocused on her ~new~ (...perhaps life?)goal of finding out what the ~hell~
was going on with regard to UFOs! She's very obviously strapped in for
this bumpy ride, has fixed her sextant on this new "star to steer
by", and hauled her ~ample~ mainsail. She has the "big mo"
to sail down the rabbit hole! Her colors ~fly~, reader! I'm scared for
- ...and myself...
- Dr. Kitei is a scientist like I said. She didn't see
a weird light in the sky and then run off to join a crystal squeezing 'boojum'
cult to say beads and worship runes (...with ~all~ respect to Boojum crystal
squeezers, bead Sayers, and rune worshippers everywhere as it remains these
~could~ possess a puzzle piece...). No, she did her homework, she studied
the evidence, she interviewed the vetted principals... she reviewed the
skeptical opposition she'd ~too~ blithely accepted before... She did her
research, brothers and sisters, yea and verily!
- A new world literally exploded around her. She began
to suspect she was no longer (...had never been!) in Kansas, and Auntie
"M" (...cubed?) was a myth and nowhere to be found!
- There'll be no heel-clicking return from ~this~ Oz.
Besides, who'd want to? As the reader may recall, a multicolored Oz was
preferable, preferential, and more fully featured with potentiality than
Dorothy's grey scale dust-bowl. Speaking for myself, I'd opt to stay in
Oz. Another digression.
- Dr. Kitei, to continue, was flatly ~amazed~ at the startling
quality and abundant quantity of the evidence readily available for study!
A scientist, so you don't forget, she realized that there is really no
such thing as "proof" actually, only evidence, only ~ever~ 'evidence'...
that one individual will accept over another individual. That 'subjectivity'
remains to be the foundation of the final 'objectivity'... is a strange
twist of irony... but, reach exceeds grasp or what's a heaven for?
- She was absolutely ~stunned~ to discover the number of
quality persons who report, at risk, the activities and actions of these
strangely enigmatic lights and anomalous objects... objects steadfastly
~refusing~ to go away! ...And Persons exist, good reader, Dr. Kitei discovers,
who are too many times dashed (by the system) on the seemingly indifferent
shoals of the mainstream's abject and inexplicable DENIAL... of ~anything~
ufological or zeno-archeological or historically revisionistic, or remotely
investigative of the darkly powerful.
- She was ~outraged~, I suspect, to discover the head-in-the-sand,
derisively mannered, and deleterious approbations from top level government,
jet-setting corporate, or larded establishment church wheels with regard
to UFOs! It became clear to her that, to this point, and for all the pain
(and death!) of some brave and intelligent ufological worthies, ufological
considerations by the conflicted mainstream were data ~driving~ and not,
remotely, data ~driven~. Lies, not truth.
- I can't speak for Dr. Kitei, but I suspect that her disappointment
upon this gestalt realization of ongoing betrayal was, to say the least,
profound... I imagine this disappointment was followed by angered resentment
at being so manipulated, duped, and otherwise shined on her whole life
by the duplicitous establishment... I may be projecting... [g].
- Regardless, she's in a round of UFO Hold'em and already
dealt a couple of aces, considering her reputation and education, ... and
knowing that her opponents in the game have nothing but small cards in
different suits, or, ~nothing~, that is to say... she's exuberated to play
with the idea of going "all in" as the game progresses...perhaps?
- This is, I detect, because she can ~prove~ the Flop,
~predicts~ the Turn card, and has already ~divined~ the River, I'm betting.
The only way an opposition wins now is to lie, cheat, steal, and murder...
convince the water-heating masses (they disrespect) that UFOs are facile
fantasy and anyone who wastes time on them is SICK, LYING, or LAZY...
- Just thinking out loud... What could be made up out of
whole cloth about the good Doctor Kitei to provide the rain for this refreshing
parade she's, perhaps, about to launch at the grass roots with regard to
UFOs? What character attacks must she stoically endure in the future?
- Kitei ~may~ prove to be a rallying standard around which
physicists may consort with philosophers and theologists should collaborate
with humanists. It would be tres' convenient for the 'status quo' if she
would 'get out' of the UFO business, I expect.
- Her detractors ~are~ well behind the credibility curve
and lose more supporting relevancy every day, while Kitei has already filled
her sails with a righteous east wind and can easily out-sail this bloated
and illogical squall of card-carrying reflex debunkers... tack away from
the cloying insinuations of pelicanist sturm and klasskurtzian drang.
She's already produced the 'book' and couched that written explication
with a video 'documentary' that is ~unsurpassed~ with regard to data following
sincerity, legitimately compelling production values, and an all-enriching
inspirational optimism for our unfolding future... ~if~ we let it unfold
- And such a film it is...
- This just mentioned film is a first rate production of
one of the most startling ufological accounts of our time... "The
Phoenix Lights"... an account very similar to ~other~ accounts from
the past which have been chronicled by vetted human beings (even if ignored)
for as long as we have been able to put pen to paper and even burnt stick
to cave wall...
- ...Even before Christ! Even before Buddha! Even before
Moses...before Krishna... before Osiris, Marduk, and El Al... reader! All
the way back to Enki and Enlil and beyond. We're not only ~not~ alone,
brothers and sisters... we've never ~been~ 'alone'.
- Moreover, Doctor Kitei attempts to take a few ~more~
bravely unpopular steps out on that ufological limb, forgetting for a moment
that someone ~has~ to make the traverse because that's where the informational
nuts and berries are...
- The Doctor, respected reader, is open to 'optimism' with
regard to this 'thing'... yes.
