ET's are here? So what? What does it mean to the average person in America, Somalia, Lebanon, Russia, Peru? Why does it matter when and if the Truth Embargo is lifted by government authority? To appreciate this, you must begin with the technology that got them here. That and a Washington update from the nation's leading exopolitical activist.
Stephen Bassett is arguably the leading advocate in the nation for ending the 60-year government imposed truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and the planet earth. He is a political activist, lobbyist, commentator, columnist and conference producer. He is the founder of the Paradigm Research Group, the Executive Director of the Extraterrestrial Phenomena Political Action Committee (X-PPAC), the author of the Paradigm Clock website and the executive producer of the X-Conference. His work has been covered worldwide including the Washington Post, Washington Times, New York Times, Legal Times, Christian Science Monitor, National Journal, Pravda, London Sunday Express and Roll Call.
Debow will reveal publicly for the first time details about a UFO crash incident that has been successfully covered-up for over 35 years. He will present eyewitness testimony by a observer that saw the object impact on the side of a mountain. Within a few days the small town went into a complete lockdown, phones went blank, TV went to fuzz, post office closed, newspapers stopped arriving, highways were closed and no one could leave. At the end of the barrage of military and NASA vehicles two tractor trailers were seen transporting an extremely heavy oblong shaped object covered by tarps out of town. This engaging story will give you an inside perspective of how an information vacuum is created, staying sealed for decades.
Cameron Debow is a freelance writer and video producer who has worked in communications for over 20 years. In the 90s he created UFOChronicles.com which was featured on TV, radio, print including NBC and the Sci-Fi channel. He recently completed an independent book release UFO’s, What’s Really Going On that is available in pdf format. In his 25 years of research he has uncovered several unreported UFO related incidents. His research has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, Oakland Tribune and several other newspapers.
This talk will discuss the role of television and movies in shaping children's perception of aliens, and how that perception has changed over the years. It also raises the question of why our children might be manipulated in this way, and what parents should do about it.
Karyn Dolan is the host of "Through the Keyhole," a weekly internet radio program devoted to ufology and the paranormal. She is interested in the connections between various "fringe" topics, such as cryptozoology, ufology, occultism, and hidden history. Karyn also provides copy editing and transcription services for various researchers and writers in the UFO/paranormal field, including her husband, Richard Dolan, who is author of UFOs and the National Security State. She lives with her husband and their two homeschooled children in Rochester, New York. Information on "Through the Keyhole" and contact information for Karyn can be found at www.keyholepublishing.com.
Obtaining a UFO is one thing. But what next? Clearly, such exotic technology has to have a home within deeply secret places where scientists can study it. Such a program would be nearly as old as UFO secrecy itself, although most researchers overlook this crucial piece of the puzzle. Today, there is enough information to construct an outline of the program to replicate alien technology over the last 50 years. This program involves intense secrecy, privatization, gravity research, and more. The evidence is strong that real breakthroughs have been made and that applications are being used covertly, such as within a secret space program. Secrecy about these programs and technological breakthroughs must be maintained because revelations could unravel the entire structure of secrecy. This includes not only truth about extraterrestrials, but of the labyrinthian and illegal black infrastructure that has become entrenched as a true state within a state.
Richard Dolan studied history, English, and philosophy as an undergraduate at Alfred University. His deep passion for the discipline of history resulted in a scholarship to study at Oxford University and a near miss for a Rhodes scholarship. He chose instead to do graduate work at the University of Rochester, where he focused on German and Soviet studies before moving on to American Cold War diplomacy. Not wanting to teach, he left academia to write. In 1994 he became interested in the UFO problem, approaching it from the angle of history and politics. He was intrigued by the cultural schizophrenia - the fact that mainstream and academic culture (official culture) continued to treat UFOs as amusement, but that so many intelligent people privately had taken it seriously. Throughout 1995, 1996, and 1997 he conducted a systematic bibliographic search, hunting down the many out-of-print books and UFO documents released over the years through the Freedom of Information Act. He found the amount of information nearly overwhelming. A detailed chronology of relevant events was prepared in advance of writing his critically acclaimed book, UFOs and the National Security State: Chronology of a Cover-up, 1947-1973. This book provides the crucial foundation everyone needs: a clear, comprehensive, but concise historical narrative of the problem. He is now at work on the study's second volume, which will take the story through the remainder of the 20th century.
Public skepticism about the reality of UFO crashes stems from a near total absence of news coverage about such events. The naïve media consumer assumes that news organizations present a more or less complete picture of world events. Consequently, the absence of news about UFO crashes suggests to such people that crashes have not, in fact, occurred. Historically, however, leading news organizations have worked very closely with the federal government to censor news judged to have "national security" implications. This means that UFO crashes almost certainly would not have received much news coverage, especially by national-level news organizations. In this talk, Terry Hansen, author of 'The Missing Times: New media complicity in the UFO cover-up,' explains why news organizations cooperate with the government, how news censorship is achieved in practice, and how propaganda works to hide important events and reduce public curiosity. Hansen will also discuss potential ways to circumvent UFO-related media deceptions. Finally, he will discuss the concept of national security and the prospects for achieving a more open, accountable federal government.
Terry Hansen holds degrees in biology and science journalism from the University of Minnesota and has worked as a magazine editor, journalist, and technical writer. His interest in UFOs arose from curiosity about the origin of life and potential evidence for non-terrestrial intelligence. Over the years, he has written about the UFO controversy for various media, including the Minneapolis Star & Tribune and National Public Radio. In 1994 and 1995, he organized and moderated two symposiums about the science and politics of UFO research for the Science Museum of Minnesota. He is author of 'The Missing Times: News media complicity in the UFO cover-up.' Hansen has appeared on various national radio and television broadcasts to discuss the news media’s role in the UFO debate.
The July 1974 UFO INVESTIGATOR published by the National Investigations Committee On Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), reported: "On May 28, 1974, a resident of Albuquerque, New Mexico, was awakened to see a large, glowing object moving across the western face of the Sandia Mountains." An Albuquerque couple also reported to NICAP that on that same date later in the morning, they watched a large, spinning aerial disc from their kitchen window. Now an Albuquerque family has gone on the record about the flattened-egg-shaped, aerial object, which glowed pearly white as it slowly moved in the sky near the Arroyo del Oso apartments around 9 p.m. that May 1974 evening. Two of the eyewitnesses even heard 770 KKOB radio announce that a UFO was flying over Albuquerque. With videotaped interviews, slides and illustrations, I will present the family's eyewitness accounts, including their car chase following the descending UFO to the dirt roads at the base of Sandia Mountains on the eastern edge of Albuquerque. To the family's surprise, when they got as far as they could go on a dirt road, they could see military police surrounding the still-glowing disc that seemed to be hovering in a horizontal position very low to the ground of a rocky hillside. An angry officer ordered the family and several others cars behind them away from the scene.

South American UFO crashes differ from their North American counterparts in that they rely less on eyewitness testimony and alleged top secret government documents and more on actual physical evidence retrieved by civilians and subsequently analyzed in laboratories. This presentation will discuss briefly the following twelve cases:Chanco crash (Chile, 1917)
Five of these cases (Campinas, Ubatuba, Poulain, Bogota, Tabé) involve physical metallic evidence that was analyzed in laboratories in the USA, Russia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Japan with varying degrees of strangeness. Three cases (Ramblón, Neuquén and Santa Cruz) involve physical evidence that was retrieved by the local military authorities (Argentinian and Bolivian). Results of any analysis were not disclosed and are therefore unknown. The remaining four cases (Chanco, Viña del Mar, Tarija, Paihuano) are more “traditional” UFO crashes, although the Tarija case is supported by significant multiple-witness testimony, widespread media coverage at the time of the event, and an FOIA paper trail from the US State Department and the USAF Project Moon Dust. Some of these cases may be eventually explained by space debris from Soviet satellites or other Cold War-related activities. On the other hand, some of the results of the analysis of the various metallic fragments appear truly puzzling and unexplained. The famous Varginha case (Brazil, 1996) was left out of this list since it’s already well known to American ufologists and has been widely discussed in the English UFO literature. The bulk of the cases presented here are virtually unknown to the American UFO community.

For decades, countless tales have been told of crashed UFOs that have been retrieved under cover of a cloak of overwhelming secrecy and with the utmost haste by elements of the U.S. military. But who is responsible for the retrievals? And how, time and again, are they so successfully coordinated? The answers can be found buried deep within the world of an elite official body known as Project Moon Dust. Nick Redfern reveals the startling story of the US Government's UFO quick-reaction team that has traveled the US, and indeed the world, to recover crashed alien spacecraft, extraterrestrial bodies, and exotic technology. From Bolivia to Turkey, from the UK to South Africa, and from Cuba to Afghanistan come stories of amazing Roswell-like events, and the Top Secret world of the Government's UFO recovery team: Project Moon Dust.
Nick Redfern is the author of a number of books on UFOs, including "A Covert Agenda: The British Government's UFO Top Secrets Exposed"; "The FBI Files: The FBI's UFO Top Secrets Exposed"; "Cosmic Crashes: The Incredible Story of the UFOs That Fell to Earth;" and "On the Trail of the Saucer Spies." Nick has written for "Eye-Spy"; "Military Illustrated" and the London "Daily Express" newspaper. He also writes a regular column - titled "View from a Brit" - for "UFO Magazine", and he has a blog, www.ufomystic.com, that he updates daily. Nick has contributed important data to Dr. Robert Wood's ground-breaking and forthcoming book, "In Search of the Alien Viruses," and he has made a number of visits to the National Archives with Ryan Wood in search of official documentation on UFOs. He currently lives in Dallas, Texas.
Paralleling the past few decades of unidentified flying object reports, incidents and alien abduction accounts, UFOs and aliens have had a hand in selling us and our children everything from breakfast cereal to computers. Is this simply a matter of the advertising industries taking advantage of imagery already ingrained in popular culture to sell us more goods and services, or is something deeper and more methodical at work here? Both, as it turns out. This talk aims to familiarize you with some so the specifics, such as what do commercials tell us about aliens, extraterrestrials and UFOs? Is this information presented in an overt or covert manner? Which companies and corporations are using such themes in their advertising? Do such ads contain references to crashed hardware and abductions? Does there seem to be an organized effort to use such themes to increase the public’s acceptance of an alien presence on Earth? Can such ads help us to understand the nature of the phenomenon? Can they be used to help condition the public to some official point of view? What products and marketing segments are the most widely used? This compelling PowerPoint presentation is heavily illustrated.

Topics to be covered: Lockheed M-151 (TAV), TR-3A Black Manta, "The Pumkinseed," TR-3B Astra, The real F-19, "Super STOL," "Project Silverbug," USAF jet disc program, Senior Peg, A-12 Avenger II, "The Fluxliner," Boeing Phantom Works "Bird of Prey," Rockwell FV-12, Convair "Project Fish," electro-gravitic propulsion systems.
Michael Schratt, private pilot/military aerospace historian, currently works as an aerospace draftsman near Chicago. Michael has lectured across the country on the unique subject of "Mystery Aircraft," and classified propulsion systems buried deep within the military industrial complex. A recent guest speaker at the “OSHKOSH” AirVenture 2006 event, (world's largest air show), Michael has developed a number of contacts which have had first hand experience dealing classified "black programs," including former USAF pilots, retired Naval personnel, and aerospace engineers that have maintained a TOP SECRET Q "MAJIC" clearance.
Harvard College, Harvard Law School and Harvard Divinity School-trained Comparative Social Ethicist and Constitutional Trial Lawyer, Daniel Peter Sheehan (the Director of the new Mexico City-based "Center for The Development of Extra-Terrestrial Public & Private Policy") will set forth not only his direct, first-hand personal experience in reviewing, in the still-classified portions of the United States Air Force's "Project Blue Book" Files, official United States Air Force photographs of a "crashed" U.F.O. vehicle in the direct possession of the United States Air Force. He will also provide analysis of the "tactical" importance of professional investigation of "U.F.O. Crash Retrievals" within the larger "strategic" field of investigating the potential physical and metaphysical nature of the inhabitants of another, NON-Human, Highly-Technologically-Developed, "Extra-Terrestrial" Intelligent Civilization located within our Milky Way Galaxy and capable of visiting our planet Earth. Mr. Sheehan will reveal the latest metaphysical research in which he and Dr. John Mack were mutually engaged, when, in September of 2004, Dr. Mack was tragically struck and killed by a drunken British cabdriver on the streets of London bringing this research to a premature end. Attorney Sheehan will discuss his views concerning the significance of these matters -- including whether the American Government has sought for over 60 years to obtain Extra-Terrestrial technology in order to back-engineer space weapons with potentially catastrophic consequences.
Daniel Sheehan is a graduate of Harvard Law School and a Professor of World Politics at the University of California. No stranger to political activism, his career includes work for the American Civil Liberties Union; co-founding of the Christic Institute and legal pursuit of the Iran/Contra scandal. He co-directed the Karen Silkwood case; the Three-Mile Island case; and the American Sanctuary Movement Case. Sheehan served as legal counsel to the New York Times in the Pentagon Papers case and represented Fathers Daniel Berrigan and Phil Berrigan during their Viet Nam activism. Mr. Sheehan was the Director of the Strategic Initiative to Identify the New Paradigm launched by former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev's State of the World Forum in San Francisco. In 1994 Dan defended Dr. John Mack before an review panel of the Harvard Medical School in the wake of Mack's book "Abduction: Human Encounters With Aliens." He has publicly stated that in 1977, while general counsel to the United States Jesuit Office of Social Ministry in Washington, DC., he served as a special consultant to a United States Library of Congress Congressional Research Service project on extraterrestrial intelligence during the Carter Administration and was given access to classified portions of the United States Air Force's infamous "Project Blue Book" files. As general counsel and a director of the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS), Sheehan states, "During my thirty years in the field of public interest law and public policy, I have supervised professional investigations into the illegal smuggling of weapons-grade plutonium, the illegal supply of arms to terrorist organizations by covert operations and government agents, and into ultra-"black" weapons programs unknown even to the most trusted congressional officials. I have come to believe that keeping weapons out of interplanetary space is the most important contribution we can make to the future of this planet. The time to begin this task is now."
Ruben Uriarte and Noe Torres, authors of the book Mexico's Roswell: The Chihuahua UFO Crash, will present the latest findings regarding the crash of a UFO along the Rio Grande River between Presidio, Texas and Coyame, Chihuahua. The story goes that a small plane collided with a UFO in the skies over Coyame on August 25, 1974, triggering a frantic race by the U.S. and Mexico to recover the crashed object. An elite recovery team assembled by the CIA ended up winning the race and making off with the prize. Upon visiting the Coyame area earlier this year, the authors discovered seemingly relevant evidence, including a debris field from the crash of a small airplane, a 30-foot wide circular scorched patch of desert littered with metal fragments, a pit from which human remains were hastily retrieved by the Mexican military, and other sites of interest. They also found a witness living near the crash site who remembers a thunderous explosion in 1974. The authors will share the results of their field investigation, complete with video clips, still photos, and interviews. They will also share new information that has surfaced since the May 2007 publication of their book, including an amazing UFO encounter near Coyame that was reported in October of 1973 by the nephew of a former president of Mexico. More information about the authors and their investigations is available at www.mexicosroswell.com
Noe Torres holds a Master's degree in Library Science from the University of Texas at Austin. He has previously published two books and has written a motion picture screenplay. Currently collaborating with Uriarte on a series of UFO books, Torres is also a sports historian. His first book, published in 2005, was Ghost Leagues, and a second book, published one year later, was titled Baseball's First Mexican-American Star.
Ruben Uriarte is a graduate of Cal State University at Hayward with a degree in Psychology and Latin American Studies. He has been a member of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) for over 20 years, is currently state director for Northern California, and also serves as liaison between MUFON and its Mexican counterpart, OMIFO. Uriarte has spoken at numerous UFO conferences and has been frequently interviewed on radio and television regarding UFOs. In 2005, he was featured in a History Channel documentary called “Mexico’s Roswell,” which was about this same case.
In 2001, a British man named Gary McKinnon allegedly carried out the "biggest military computer hack of all time" when he accessed US Government computer systems in search of data on UFOs. Using the codename of "Solo," McKinnon is said to have hacked into hundreds of computers over a period of18 months - something which, U.S. prosecutors claim, caused no less than $700,000 worth of damage. The U.S. government maintains that McKinnon's hacking activities were "intentional and calculated to influence and affect the US government by intimidation and coercion." Today, McKinnon faces impending extradition to the United States (having been denied trial in his home country of England), and possible jail time of 70 years. What is the truth behind this strange saga? What is the real story of the files on "Non-Terrestrial Officers" that McKinnon found? How does this tie-in with UFOs? In a groundbreaking lecture, British UFO expert Matthew Williams reveals the startling facts of this real-life X-Files-style saga.
Matthew Williams is a former investigator with the British government's Customs and Excise. After a personal UFO encounter in Wales in the early 1990s, he began to actively investigate the subject, and focused his attention upon links between secret government UFO projects and underground military bases in the UK. The former editor of "Truth-Seeker's Review" magazine, Williams has appeared on many British and overseas TV documentaries on UFOs.
This is the exact title of a manuscript by Vernon Bowen, an author and attorney of the 40s and 50s, who decided to give it to the government for review in 1960. In 1999, it was mailed by the Army Freedom of Information/Privacy Office of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command, Fort Meade, Maryland to Tim Cooper of Big Bear Lake. After keeping it for nearly 40 years, the returned document is clearly the original, as typed by author Bowen. The document is interesting for at least three reasons: (1) it is absolutely authentic, and the aspects of authenticity will be discussed; (2) it provides clear evidence that the government had a high degree on interest in this topic, classifying pages either CONFIDENTIAL or TOP SECRET/MAJIC; and (3) the remarkable handwritten annotations provide confirmation of the involvement of Harvard astronomer Don Menzel in the UFO program, confirm the existence of Lt. General Twining's 23 Sept 47 report to Chief of Staff USAF, affirm that Project Moon Dust is relevant to UFOs, and offer a variety of handwriting identification challenges. In addition, the manuscript will be offered as a book, and is exceptionally well written: Vernon Bowen had a great sense of humor but was genuinely puzzled by the phenomenon, reporting on virtually every single newspaper and magazine article up to about 1960. When published, it will be fun to read!
