New Mexico will never leave you, no matter where you go

(CLICK AND ENLARGE ABOVE – – This is the exact spot where I first fell in love with New Mexico in 1965 when I came to attend the University of Albuquerque, all the way from Japan…the university was located right next to this spot where you can see the beautiful Sandia Mountains and the beautiful Rio Grande on the West Mesa…it is now the location of St. Pius High School)

Words cannot fully express how much I love living here in New Mexico, USA.

As I stated elsewhere many times before:

Once you taste the beauty and uniqueness of New Mexico, it will never leave you, no matter where you go.

In fact, it will tell you sooner or later that this is the place to return to and spend the rest of your remaining life.

This is the reason why so many out-of-state students who, for the first time, come to New Mexico to attend colleges and universities  (for one reason or other)  will decide to come back here, even after graduating and returning to their points of origin.

I know many such students  (such as those from the East Coast areas such as New York and the Mid-West areas such as Chicago)  who eventually came back and decided to live here and became residents of this great state.

And the same goes for many students from foreign countries, even.

It happened to me, too.

I first came here to New Mexico from Japan in 1965, but then later moved on to Arizona in 1973 where I taught Spanish in a rural public high school and where I became a naturalized citizen of this great nation in 1976.  From 1982 to 2008 I lived and worked in Los Angeles, as a licensed funeral director.

But something told me that after my retirement,  I must move back here to this Land of Enchantment and spend the rest of my life here.   And now I am so happy living here again !!


Because there is no place like New Mexico – – its beautiful, mild climate, its rich and diverse culture and wonderful, generous people.

(It goes without saying that New Mexico, with its abundance of tasty green chile, has the best food I ever tasted – – I love New Mexico’s unique music style – – I love the great Native American people here and their traditions – – I love the Hispano culture with its unique Spanish language spoken here, especially in northern New Mexico – – I could go on and on)

New Mexico is the 5th largest State in the Union, yet its entire population is only around 2 million.   It has been (and will be) that way for quite some time.


Because many people in the United States  (and most people in the world)  do not even seem to know  (or do not seem to care)  that we even exist.   LOL!!

In a way, it’s the best kept secret.

(Some people here like to keep it that way).

Nothing in the world is more beautiful than the lights of Albuquerque, especially coming in from the West on I-40.  It’s simply gorgeous.

My wife and I retired in 2008 and moved from California to New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment.  It was the best decision of our life!!

Helicopter tests laser weapon in southern New Mexico

(ENLARGE ABOVE – –  A high-energy laser mounted on an Apache AH-64 attack helicopter acquired and hit an unmanned target during a recent firing test at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. The test was conducted by Raytheon and the U.S. Army Apache Program Management Office, in collaboration with U.S. Special Operations Command – – Illustration, courtesy of Raytheon)

by Bob Martin, KRQE – – Albuquerque, New Mexico, June 26, 2017

White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico  (KRQE) :

An Apache AH-64 attack helicopter flying over White Sands Missile Range recently became the first rotorcraft to fire an integrated laser weapon at a target.

Laser weapons have been fired previously from airplanes, ground vehicles and ships, but this was the first firing of a laser weapon by a rotorcraft at a target.

Raytheon, the U-S Army and the U-S Special Operations Command conducted the tests to evaluate the effects of dusty rotor downwash and helicopter vibration on the laser’s operation.

Raytheon says a stationary target was identified by the system and hit by the laser about a mile away from the laser gunship.

In a news release, Raytheon said the “fully integrated laser system successfully shot a target from a rotary-wing aircraft over a wide variety of flight regimes, altitudes and air speeds, proving the feasibility of laser attack from Apache.”




“Modern attack helicopters are all about precision engagement capabilities. Unless you want a fairly large explosion that will obliterate a small building or a few vehicles, the best weapons available to Apache crews are the helicopter’s 30mm cannon and the recent addition of laser-guided rockets. Yet even these surgical weapons, with their highly-localized effects on the battlefield, still use high-explosives to make a big bang; if you want to be extremely precise with almost no chance of collateral damage, lasers are the way to go.

If you want a tactical aircraft fighting in a combat zone to destroy a piece of equipment, like a power generator, but without destroying the structure it’s attached to, or to disable a vehicle without killing anyone standing around it, you’re out of luck unless you have a laser. With this in mind, there’s a clear and highly relevant requirement for a weapon that can accomplish such feats, a requirement as yet unfulfilled.

Think about the ability to target a small group of individuals, or even a single individual, on a street without hurting other innocent bystanders going about their business just yards away. Being cooked by an invisible laser beam over the span of a few seconds would be a pretty nasty way for even a bad guy to go, but at least those close by would not have to be sacrificed in the process.

In another earlier piece on solid state airborne tactical lasers I wrote:

Precision weaponry has changed the way we fight wars and has helped greatly when it comes to avoiding non-combatant casualties, yet even low-yield warheads inside the smallest of guided bombs and missiles explode and can cause unintended harm. If aircrew could just target a person holding a weapon, or a small group persons holding weapons, and take them out using ‘non-kinetic’ weaponry, than we can save a lot of innocent lives, not to mention money, as even a mass-produced AGM-114 Hellfire missile each cost tens of thousands of dollars per round.

Such a capability would be somewhat analogues to a phaser from Star Trek and just the psychological affect on the enemy knowing that they could erupt in flames at any moment while operating in the open could potentially be a game changer. It could also greatly alleviate the risk to human shields as air power may not be able to destroy a large target that has innocents commingled with the enemy inside, but it could shut down that facility’s operations long enough for ground forces to take the building down just by parking a aircraft with a solid-state laser above. If anyone has a weapon outside the facility, or even comes and goes from it, they could be cooked in an instant with almost no chance of unintended injuries or deaths.

The same can be said when it comes to eliminating threats emanating from critical infrastructure or buildings with cultural significance. If there is a sniper atop a Mosque, than an aircraft equipped with a laser could disable or kill just that sniper, leaving the Mosque totally intact.”

Roswell, 1947 – – creation of a modern myth, how it all started


by Norio Hayakawa:

Nothing extraterrestrial crashed in New Mexico in July of 1947.

But something did crash around June 14 of 1947, about 35 miles northwest of Roswell and it wasnt’ a flying saucer.

Here is the TIMELINE of the events that took place:

June 14  (Saturday):

(10 days before the world had ever heard of “flying saucers” or “flying disks”), a rancher by the name of W.W. (Mac) Brazel  (pictured below) and his 8-year old son, Vernon, were about 7 or 8 miles from the ranch house of the J. B. Foster ranch, which he operates, when they came upon a large area of bright wreckage made up of rubber strips, tinfoil, a rather tough paper and sticks.

There was no sign of any metal in the area which might have been used for an engine and no sign of any propellers of any kind, although at least one paper fin had been glued onto some of the tinfoil.

There were no words to be found anywhere on the instrument, although there were letters on some of the parts.  Considerable scotch tape and some tape with flowers printed upon it had been used in the construction.

(J.B. Foster Ranch was located about 30 miles southeast of Corona, NM – – the ranch was located about 35 miles northwest of Roswell).

At the time Brazel was in a hurry to get his round made and he did not pay much attention to it.

June 24  (Tuesday):

The famous Kenneth Arnold incident in Washington state.  This was the beginning of the modern era of worldwide sighting reports of “flying saucers”, later called “UFOs”:


July 4  (Friday):

Brazel, his wife, Vernon and a daughter, Betty, age 14, went back to the spot and gathered up quite a bit of the debris.

July 5  (Saturday):

It was on July 5 that Brazel first heard about the flying disks, and he wondered if what he had found  (3 weeks before)  might be the remnants of one of these.

July 7  (Monday):

Brazel came to Roswell to sell some wool and while here he went to see sheriff George Wilcox and “whispered kinda confidential like” that he might have found a flying disk.

Wilcox got in touch with the Roswell Army Air Field and Maj. Jesse A. Marcel:

Marcel’s commander, Colonel William Blanchard  (pictured below) ordered Marcel and counterintelligence officer Sheridan Cavitt out to Brazel’s ranch.

Marcel and counterintelligence officer accompanied him home, where they picked up the rest of the pieces of the “disk” and went to his home to try to reconstruct it.

On viewing the wreckage, Cavitt immediately thought it probably came from a weather balloon, but Marcel had other ideas.  Marcel had a pre-conceived notion that it must have been part of the flying disk that he had heard about.

July 8  (Tuesday) :

The public information office at the base made the announcement that they had recovered a flying disk (approved by Col. Blanchard).  This created newspaper headlines – – it was a sensation!:

However, at the intervention of Brigadier General Roger Ramey  (pictured below)  who had also inspected the wreckage, a press conference was soon held that included Marcel.  The army rather simplistically  (and inadequately)  announced that the fuss was over nothing more than a weather balloon, pieces of which were duly paraded for public display.  (It should be noted that it wasn’t just a “weather balloon“.   It was a slightly modified, newer type of high-altitude reconnaissance balloon made to detect reverberations from Russian nuclear tests.) 

Prior to the press conference, a weather officer by the name of Irving Newton (pictured below) remembered seeing pieces of what he recognized as a weather balloon laid out in Ramey’s office:

In 1994, Newton told investigators:

“I remember Major Marcel chased me all around that room…..He kept saying things like ‘Look how tough that metal is….look at the strange markings on it’….While I was examining the debris, Marcel was picking up pieces of the radar target sticks and trying to convince me that some notations on the sticks were alien writings.  But I was adamant that it was a weather balloon with a RAWIN (radar) target.  I think he was embarrassed as crazy and he would like to do anything to make that turn into a flying saucer” – – from Mysteries, Myths, Mayhem and Money chapter of Gary Bates’ ALIEN INTRUSION.

(Please read officer Irving Newton’s complete official statement that he made on July 21,1994 at the bottom of this page)


July 9  (Wednesday):

Ramey’s statement appears on ROSWELL DAILY RECORD newspaper:

July 9  (Wednesday):

W.W. (Mac) Brazel’s statement of regret appears on ROSWELL DAILY RECORD newspaper:


W.W. Brazel, 48, Lincoln county rancher living 30 miles south of Corona, today told his story of finding what the army at first described as a flying disk, but the publicity which attended his find caused him to add that if he ever found anything else short of a bomb, he sure wasn’t going to say anything about it.

Brazel was brought here late yesterday by W. E. Whitmore, of radio station KGFL, had his picture taken and gave an interview to the Record and Jason Kellahin, sent here from the Albuquerque bureau of the Associated Press to cover the story.  The picture he posed for was sent out over AP telephoto wire sending machine specially set up in the Record office by R. D. Adair, AP wire chief sent here from Albuquerque for the sole purpose of getting out his picture and that of sheriff George Wilcox, to whom Brazel originally gave the information of his find.

Brazel related that on June 14 he and an 8-year old son, Vernon, were about 7 or 8 miles from the ranch house of the J. B. Foster ranch, which he operates, when they came upon a large area of bright wreckage made up on rubber strips, tinfoil, a rather tough paper and sticks.

At the time Brazel was in a hurry to get his round made and he did not pay much attention to it.  But he did remark about what he had seen and on July 4 he, his wife, Vernon and a daughter, Betty, age 14, went back to the spot and gathered up quite a bit of the debris.

The next day he first heard about the flying disks, and he wondered if what he had found might be the remnants of one of these.

Monday he came to town to sell some wool and while here he went to see sheriff George Wilcox and “whispered kinda confidential like” that he might have found a flying disk.

Wilcox got in touch with the Roswell Army Air Field and Maj. Jesse A. Marcel and a man in plain clothes accompanied him home, where they picked up the rest of the pieces of the “disk” and went to his home to try to reconstruct it.

According to Brazel they simply could not reconstruct it at all.  They tried to make a kite out of it, but could not do that and could not find any way to put it back together so that it could fit.

Then Major Marcel brought it to Roswell and that was the last he heard of it until the story broke that he had found a flying disk.

Brazel said that he did not see it fall from the sky and did not see it before it was torn up, so he did not know the size or shape it might have been, but he thought it might have been about as large as a table top.  The balloon which held it up, if that was how it worked, must have been about 12 feet long, he felt, measuring the distance by the size of the room in which he sat.  The rubber was smoky gray in color and scattered over an area about 200 yards in diameter.

When the debris was gathered up the tinfoil, paper, tape, and sticks made a bundle about three feet long and 7 or 8 inches thick, while the rubber made a bundle about 18 or 20 inches long and about 8 inches thick.  In all, he estimated, the entire lot would have weighed maybe five pounds.

There was no sign of any metal in the area which might have been used for an engine and no sign of any propellers of any kind, although at least one paper fin had been glued onto some of the tinfoil.

There were no words to be found anywhere on the instrument, although there were letters on some of the parts. Considerable scotch tape and some tape with flowers printed upon it had been used in the construction.

No strings or wire were to be found but there were some eyelets in the paper to indicate that some sort of attachment may have been used.

Brazel said that he had previously found two weather observation balloons on the ranch, but that what he found this time did not in any way resemble either of these.

“I am sure that what I found was not any weather observation balloon,” he said.  “But if I find anything else besides a bomb they are going to have a hard time getting me to say anything about it.”)


Marcel didn’t agree with this conclusion, probably because this was unlike any weather balloon he had ever seen.

It was not just a “weather balloon”.  It was a top-secret program called Project Mogul, which was finally and officially revealed in 1994:

(Other high altitude reconnaissance balloon projects from the era included Project Skyhook, Project Grandson, Project Genetrix and Projct Moby Dick, pictured above)


Yes, that was the end of the whole story. 

Roswell” became a non-issue……until more than 30 years later when a partially disinformative book entitled THE ROSWELL INCIDENT was published, and gullible folks  (as well as the so-called UFO “Industry” and the UFO Museum in Roswell)  played a role in propagating the story all over again.

Yes.  Tall tales about Roswell  (aliens, pilots, bodies, a nurse, hangar in Roswell, etc., etc., ad nauseum)  started to circulate around 30 years or more after this incident, including unreliable second-hand, third-hand and fourth-hand “witnesses” who jumped into the bandwagon of “fame” after this popular but misinformative book came out in 1980 written by a known, self-claimed disinformation agent by the name of William L. Moore.

(More than 30 years after the incident, a few die-hard believers in the ‘alien saucer myth’ started questioning again the explanation that it was a “weather balloon”.   And they were right.  It was not just a “weather balloon”.  It was a top-secret program called Project Mogul, which was finally and officially revealed in 1994).

That’s right.  The partially disinformative book entitled THE ROSWELL INCIDENT came out in 1980, co-authored by Charles Berlitz and William L. Moore  (who later on identified himself as a disinformation agent).  It became a best-seller:

(Above – – William L. Moore, self-claimed disinformation agent)

By the way, it was also in 1980  (the very same year of the publication of THE ROSWELL INCIDENT) that William L. Moore visited Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico to collaborate on another “project” with another self-claimed UFO disinformation agent, Richard C. Doty who was working as an AFOSI officer at the base.

(If you want to know more about who Richard C. Doty is, click and read:  Richard C. Doty, self-claimed government UFO disinformation agent, a UFO charlatan and con man)

In order to write this book, the authors (William L. Moore , and Charles Berlitz) claimed they interviewed some of the so-called “witnesses” to this incident.  They also delegated a few researchers to search for any other “witnesses” in the Roswell area.  Also, independent from them were a few other researchers (such as Stanton Friedman, pictured below) who, on their own, attempted to look for witnesses:

The big problem was that they interviewed folks more than 30 years after the incident took place.  And many of the so-called “witnesses” were nothing more than second-hand and third-hand “witnesses”.  Many of them were willing to be interviewed for the chance to be in the “spotlight”, so to speak.

There were also some late-comer “witnesses” to this circus, such as Glenn Dennis  (pictured below)  who, in 1989, began to claim that he was working as a mortician the day the “saucer” wreckage arrived and that he knew a nurse who supposedly assisted at the “alien” autopsies, but her name has never appeared on any records.  (Glenn Dennis became the founder of the UFO Museum at Roswell):

The total accuracy of the so-called “witnesses” (more than 30 years after the incident) was highly questionable, particularly Jesse Marcel who was a believer from the get-go and whose unfounded beliefs had been properly over-ridden and dismissed by his superiors.

Despite Marcel’s  frequently changing his testimony about the Roswell debris throughout the Roswell fiasco, in August, 1948, he was transferred to the Strategic Air Command, where he was eventually put in charge of a Pentagon briefing room for the Air Force of Atomic Energy (AFOT-1).

In July, 1950 he returned to Houma, Louisiana and opened a small-town TV repair shop.

When he was released from active duty, his commission (as a Lieutenant Colonel) was transferred to the Air Force Reserves.

He eventually received his full discharge in 1958.

(In 1978 Stanton Friedman found Jesse Marcel in Houma, Louisiana where he had retired and was still running the radio-TV repair shop)

The bottom line:

It was the town of Roswell that eventually benefited from the 1947 “Alien saucer crash” myth.
(And those who continued to propagate the ‘alien saucer crash’ story, i.e., the so-called UFO INDUSTRY)


Jesse Marcel, Walter Haut, Frank Kaufmann and Glenn Dennis.

Walter Haut vouched for these two men, who were later determined to be telling tall tales and lies about their involvement.

Was it all about promoting the UFO Museum?


Please also watch the following excellent presentation by the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.   LAYING TO REST, ONCE AND FOR ALL, THE ROSWELL  ‘ALIEN SAUCER CRASH’ STORY:

As I stated elsewhere many many times, I am a realist who believe that the UFO phenomenon itself seems to be real.   But to me, UFOs do not represent conclusive evidence of physical extraterrestrial visitations by physical extraterrestrial, biological entities in physical extraterrestrial spacecraft of any kind.  There is more to this phenomenon than the ET hypothesis.  I am also highly skeptical of the existence of authentic UFO artifacts.


Statement made by officer Irving Newton on July 21, 1994:

I was asked to provide this statement, by Lt. Col. Joseph V. Rogan who advised me, he was assisting in an investigation at the behest of the Secretary of the Air Force, for the GAO, to look into facts concerning what has become to be known as “The Roswell Incident“.

As I recall it was July 1947, I was then a Warrant Officer with seven years service.  I was the only weather forecaster on duty in the Fort Worth base weather and flight service center.  The base weather covered only the base; the flight service center covered most of the southwest states.  I received a call from some one in General Ramey’s office who asked that I go to the General’s office.  I informed him that I was the only forecaster on duty and could not leave.  Several minutes later General Ramey Himself called and said “get your ass over here.  If you don’t have a car take the first one with a key”.

I was met at the General’s office by a Lt. Col. or Col. who told me that some one had found a flying saucer in New Mexico and they had it in the General’s Office.  And that a flight had been set up to send it to Wright Patterson AFB, OH., but the General suspicioned that it might be meteorological equipment or something of that nature and wanted it examined by qualified meteorological personnel.

The Col. and I walked into the General’s office where this supposed flying saucer was lying all over the floor.  As soon as I saw it, I giggled and asked if that was the flying saucer.  I was told it was.

Several people were in the room when I went in, among them, General Ramey, a couple of press people, a Major, I learned to be Major Marcel and some other folks.  Some introduced Major Marcel as the person who found this material.

I told them that this was a balloon and a RAWIN.  I believed this because I had seen many of these before.  They were normally launched by a special crew and followed by a ground radar unit.  They provided a higher altitude winds aloft.  We did not use them at Fort Worth.  However, I was familiar with them because we used them and their products on various projects in which I was involved.  These were used mostly on special projects and overseas.  The balloon was made out of a rubber type expandable material and when launched was about six to eight feet across.  When the balloons got to altitude they expanded to twenty feet or more.  the target was used for radar reflections and I believe each leg of the target was approximately 48 inches.  It resembled a child’s Jack (like a child’s ball and jacks set) with a metallic material between the legs.  The legs were made of material appearing to be like balsa wood kite sticks but much tougher.

While I was examining the debris, Major Marcel was picking up pieces of the target sticks and trying to convince me that some notations on the sticks were alien writings.  There were figures on the sticks lavender or pink in color, appeared to be weather faded markings with no rhyme or reason.  He did not convince me these were alien writings.

I was convinced at the time that this was a balloon with a RAWIN target and remain convinced.

I remember hearing the General tell someone to cancel the flight, the flight to Wright Patterson.

While in the office several pictures were taken of Major Marcel, General Ramey, myself and others.

I was dismissed and went to my office to resume my normal duties.

During the ensuing years I have been interviewed by many authors, I have been quoted and misquoted.  The facts remain as indicated above.  I was not influenced during the original interview, nor today, to provide anything but what I know to be true, that is, the material I saw in General Ramey’s office as the remains of a balloon and a RAWIN target.

Dulce, New Mexico family victimized by “domestic terrorism” – – it wasn’t UFOs, it wasn’t Aliens, it was the ‘Government’ that did it

by R. Edmund Gomez – – Dulce, New Mexico:

“Today, June 13, 2017 marks the 41st anniversary of the first livestock mutilation we experienced on our ranch in and around Dulce, New Mexico.

This is the day that changed not only my life, but that of my family as well.

We did not choose to enter into this evil phenomena as those who have chosen to do so, in most cases profiting, without assuming risk of any kind.

We were brought into this dilemma by direct criminal loss of our livestock.

In the subsequent years from 1976 to 1985, dad and I lost 20 lactating beef cows, their calves, two yearling bulls and a yearling filly to these mutilators.

Since we were doing business with my grandfather, replacement of the cattle was imminent.

In addition, we lost 19 two-year old pregnant heifers that suddenly just died over a two week period after the Jicarilla Tribal Police spotted an unidentified (military?) aircraft hovering over our herd on April 8, 1982.

Lab reports were inconclusive and only indicated the presence of an unknown strain of Bacillus sp. (a possible cousin to anthrax?).

Total losses at that time mounted to over $100,000; over $225,000 in today’s market.

Over the years, many law enforcement personnel as well as self-proclaimed animal mutilation experts have claimed to have solved the case.

To date, not one has moved forward with a criminal investigation case to prosecute the domestic terrorists that have plagued our family and the many other ranchers and farmers in the US who have fallen victim to these cowards.

Many of these individuals, who have taken the oath “to protect and serve”, have only profited from our misfortune and have downplayed the severe financial losses and emotional strain we have endured over these past 41 years, as well as our civil rights being violated in unspeakable ways.

We have become “the victims” of domestic terrorism and continue to do so!

Throughout these years, we have also been infiltrated by “investigators” who we thought were honest and sincere, but later turned out to be again, self-interested, for one reason or another, and in my opinion, several were and have been placed by “unknown” entities to gather information or provide disinformation.

Based on our trust in humanity and our humble upbringing, we invited many of these individuals into our homes and shared our thoughts to later find that we had been used and abused and continue to be abused.

I have found it amazing how these individuals who arrived within the past few years question the authenticity of the Gomez family experience and have replaced truth with fantasy in an effort to move their agenda and profits forward.

Several of these individuals have had the audacity to overlook the true victims of the livestock mutilations in Dulce and replaced them with unsubstantiated accusations and fictitious victims.

What I have learned over the years is to trust no one and be extremely cautious of those that show an uncanny personal interest in you and the Dulce phenomena.”


It seems very likely to me that the government desperately tried to turn this whole matter  into an “alien conspiracy” scenario.

(But the strange thing about the Dulce region is that some type of paraphysical phenomenon does seem to have existed for many years, relevant to this or not.  Please refer to my article at the very bottom of this page:   PARAPHYSICAL PHENOMENON DOES SEEM TO EXIST IN DULCE, NEW MEXICO)

But realists such as the Gomez family, kept their belief that it was the government, and not the aliens who were the perpetrators of these criminal activities.

Was the government during those years conducting some type of biowarfare experiments?

Or, was the government monitoring the radiation levels and effects on certain, pre-selected cattle in the that area?

We do not know the answer.

By the way, here are some very important points noted by Greg Valdez, author of  ‘DULCE BASE‘  in regards to the cattle mutilations in Dulce, New Mexico, from the mid 1970s to the early 1990s:

“If the government went to local ranchers and purchased cattle to use for testing purposes, the first question any rancher would ask is, “Why are you testing my cattle?”.

And more importantly, “Who contaminated them?

It would have caused a tremendous uproar in the surrounding communities.

The government has a long history of incompetent decision making, but they are smart enough to avoid a lawsuit, especially when the evidence shows that they created the contamination in the first place (in this case in Dulce, New Mexico), i.e. Project Gasbuggy  (the Atomic Energy Commission’s experiment involving underground detonation of nuclear device 22 miles southwest of Dulce on December 10, 1967, ostensibly to ease the flow of natural gas in the region but which later apparently caused radiation leaks in the surrounding environment, affecting animals and even some residents, including the Dulce area).

UFO Culture is here to stay in America

(Above – – courtesy of Mysterious Universe)

by Norio Hayakawa, June 3, 2017:

I sometimes regret the fact that in the past few years I have allowed myself to become a “black sheep” of the family of a part of a larger “UFO community” by what some may describe as my “outrageous, lop-sided opinions and rantings” on Ufology , i.e., my somewhat skeptical attitude on the whole subject matter.

I have been cussed at and shunned by many die-hard “believers”.

Perhaps it is my fault.

I have been ridiculously categorized as a debunker, and in extreme cases I have been accused as being a paid government shill, just because I expressed my somewhat skeptical opinions.

I have also been accused to trying to be a Phil Klass-wanna-be.

In fact, I am not even qualified to be a debunker.

Ufology is a fascinating subject matter and will continue to be so, even though I personally have recently expressed my desire to slowly phase it out from my interests, unless some earth-shaking UFO incident takes place and UFOs become a mainstream concern.  (LOL!!)

In my view, Ufology is not so much a study on UFOs or Aliens, but rather, a great study about humans.

I will no longer call it a “sub-culture”.

It has firmly established itself as part of America’s culture.

But I am not a bad guy at all, in my heart.

All of you have been so kind, courteous and so friendly to me.

I will keep my friendship with everyone, regardless of the differences of opinion.

Life is too short.

I may only have a few more years to live.

There is no guarantee whether I  (or, for that matter, you)  will live to see the light of day tomorrow morning.

So with this, everyone, let’s continue our friendship.

For those who care to see my rantings, they’re here:

An interesting billboard that was constructed on I-25 and Paseo Del Norte in Albuquerque a few years ago….the billboard is no longer there:

New book “Phenomena”, an excellent study on America’s UFO Culture – – haunting photographs of America’s UFO believers

by Zio Baritaux, January 13, 2017:


For their new book, Phenomena, Copenhagen-based photographers Sara Galbiati, Peter Helles Eriksen, and Tobias Selnaes Markussen traveled to the epicenter of extraterrestrial encounters: the Southwestern United States.

Their route took them to peculiar places such as Area 51 and Rachel, NV, Sedona, AZ, and Roswell, NM, where they met and interviewed UFO witnesses and believers in the unexplained.

“I was abducted by aliens two times 25 years ago,” said one man in the book, who asked not to be named.

“The first time, they put an implant behind my ear; six months later, they took the implant out.”

Other believers featured in the book include Charlie Hall, who says he lived with tall, white aliens for two years; John Lear, a former CIA pilot turned conspiracy theorist; and Miesha Johnston, who claims she has given birth to 13 alien-human hybrid children in space.

Though their subjects’ stories are bizarre, the photographers present the people in the book with care.

Their beliefs are not questioned, and their portraits are gentle.

“For years, believers of extraterrestrial life have been subjects of ridicule, and with our project, we wanted to give these people the benefit of the doubt,” explains Peter.

“What if they are right?”

In addition to the stories and portraits, the exquisite cloth-bound book — designed by Ironflag Studio and published by André Frère Éditions — includes mellow, dream-like images of UFO attractions and evidence (such as a suitcase holding pieces of metal found at the Roswell crash site in 1947).

“But it is not propaganda for or against,” Sara clarifies.

“It’s an examination of the need for human faith.

And through extensive research, and collected data, we have strived to create an understanding of the modern human’s eternal search for purpose in life.”


Out of more than 30 people interviewed for this book, I was the only one who was not categorized as a total “believer“:


The description of myself in the book simply states:  Norio Hayakawa calls himself an ‘unorthodox ufologist and activist’.  He’s had a lifelong fascination with UFOs, and he’s the director of a group called the Civilian Intelligence Network.”

(Which is just fine with me….LOL).
