As I stated elsewhere many times before, I am a firm believer in the reality of the UFO phenomenon and that the phenomenon seems to continue to be reported from time to time even in places like Dulce, New Mexico, which is no exception. As of yet, we do not know the true nature of this strange phenomenon.
(Please refer to my article at the very bottom of this page: PARAPHYSICAL PHENOMENON DOES SEEM TO EXIST IN DULCE, NEW MEXICO)
But I do not believe in the fabricated tales of con artist Phil Schneider and his claims about the Dulce base whose physical existence has never been proven beyond a shadow of doubt.
Courtesy of THE ALIEN CASEBOOK:
“The numerous lies and fabrications of Phil Schneider are so multiple and so atrocious that they need to be exposed.
There is a website called Phil Schneider Memorial.
They’re actually calling it a website for a murdered patriot.
If Phil Schneider is a patriot of anything, he’s a patriot of disinformation.
He started giving lectures from 1995, mainly among “survival” groups.
He usually started off his talks by saying that the major reason for going public was that his best friend, Ron Rummel, was murdered in a park and had been in the Air Force as an intelligence agent.
Ron Rummel had never been in the Air Force, as far as we know.
Rummel was found in a park in Portland in 1993.
The police had determined that he had committed suicide by shooting himself in the mouth with a pistol on August 6, 1993.
Ron, Philip and 5 other individuals had been collaborating on a little magazine called “The Alien Digest”.
It was starting to get a fairly wide circulation when Ron was found in the park.
(CLICK TO ENLARGE ABOVE – – Creston was Ron Rummel)
Phil Schneider, with his one-track conspiracy mind-set, immediately decided that his friend had been murdered.
Because this story was posted when the Internet was just beginning in the ‘90s, it has taken on a life of its own and been copied and circulated over and over.
Circular knowledge is not knowledge at all, it is just repeating what someone else says.
By the way, the proof of Schneider’s lies in the math.
Take Phil’s age and his time on various jobs he claimed to do, certainly try and consider time at college for his supposed degrees, which never existed anyway so scratch the college time and you’ll see that he would have been 17 years old when he went to work for the government. Phil stated that he worked in Dulce in 1979.
He claimed he was one of three people to survive the 1979 fire fight between the Greys and the US intelligence and military at the Dulce underground base.
Phil was found dead in January of 1996, supposedly due to what some one-track conspiracy-minded folks like to claim as an “execution style murder”.
The Clackamas County Coroner’s office finally concluded that it was suicide.
Schneider was not murdered.
Schneider had suffered from multiple physical illnesses (brittle bone syndrome – osteoporosis, cancer and self-inflicted injuries.)
He had intense chronic pain all of the time.
But above all, Phil Schneider suffered from self-inflicting, self-mutilating psychological disorder, mental instability and delusive illness.
Here is his Social Security disability income (SSI):

An autopsy was performed at the Multnomah County Medical Examiner’s office in Portland, Oregon by Dr. Gunson, and she determined that Philip had committed suicide by wrapping a rubber catheter hose three times around his neck, and half-knotting in front.
The late Gabe Valdez who was the State Patrol Officer in charge of the Dulce area for many years, also stated that Schneider’s death was a suicide, after examining the autopsy report:
(ABOVE – – an excellent book written by Gabe Valdez’s son, Greg Valdez in which he exposes Phil Schneider as a fraud)
(QUOTE FROM GREG VALDEZ):
“Cynthia Schneider Drayer was the person who actually came up with the murder theory.
Cynthia didn’t get this idea from actual evidence but from her mother, who had a psychic vision and concluded that Phil was murdered.
Cynthia also claimed that her dad, Frank Martain, was killed in Albuquerque in 1952 as part of another conspiracy involving the government.
Her inconsistent story also claimed that Phil’s hands were tied when he was found dead and then later claimed they were by his side.
Her story has many inconsistencies, making Phil’s involvement in Dulce extremely unlikely and not credible.
Cynthia Drayer quickly started requesting money in her correspondence with Gabe Valdez because, she claimed, Phil did not have life insurance.
Cynthia has provided much of the rumors about Phil.
There are claims that Phil was killed with piano wire, but the autopsy report clearly indicates that he died with surgical tubing around his neck.
The piano wire theory was part of the psychic vision and not actual evidence.
Take caution with any website or person claiming he was killed with piano wire, because he was not.”
Phil Schneider did not tell his bogus story till 1995.
Phil had never heard of “Project Gasbuggy”.
(ABOVE – – schematic drawing of Project Gasbuggy, conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission on December 10, 1967, about 22 miles southwest of Dulce, New Mexico to ease the flow of natural gas in the area)
Yet Schneider claimed to be a knowledgeable “geologist” and explosive expert.
Schneider was never able or willing to prove his allegations, such as showing the entrance to the Dulce base or where tunnels he drilled were located.
Phil Schneider repeated information about underground bases that was already in print.
Phil Schneider quoted “word for word” material already written by other researchers:
(ABOVE – – another con artist Cherry Hinkle who initially went by “Anne West”)
(ABOVE – – the alleged Thomas E. Castello, whose existence has never been proven)
(ABOVE – – the late Paul Bennewitz of Albuquerque, New Mexico who in 1979 first became convinced that there was a Dulce underground base under the Archuleta Mesa)
(ABOVE – – John Lear, propagator of “alien myths”)
(ABOVE – -another con artist, Al Bielek)
(ABOVE – – BRANTON, a.k.a., Alan B. deWalton, author of “Dulce Wars”)
(ABOVE – – Tal Levesque, a.k.a., Jason Bishop III, early promoter of the Dulce Base myth and originator of the underground tunnels map of the United States):
(ABOVE – – Bob Lazar, who was said to have manipulated his buddy John Lear‘s insinuation of 1989 that in 1975, there was an altercation between U.S. Delta Forces and alien entities in a U.S. underground facility, suggesting that it was under Groom Lake/Area 51)
In other words, Phil Schneider practically “hijacked” Bob Lazar‘s dubious insinuation of 1989 that in 1975 there was an altercation between a U.S. elite military force and alien entities in an underground base, suggested to be under Groom Lake/Area 51 (John Lear credited this allegation to Bob Lazar, Lear’s good buddy) and then Schneider, in turn, conveniently made himself a “protagonist” in a new fabricated tale (changing the location to Dulce, New Mexico and the year to 1979) since no one else had done it before.
Phil Schneider did not bring forward any new information, not already in circulation.
Schneider did put on a good show for any “newbie” to the Info.
He did tie together many aspects of the material.
He did correlate the data in a dramatic “story” format that flowed well.
He put a personal face on all the material and that was compelling.
Phil said “I got shot in the chest with one of the aliens’ weapons, which was a box on their body, that blew a hole in me and gave me a nasty dose of cobalt radiation. I have had cancer because of that”.
Radioactive cobalt is used for commercial and medical purposes. Exposure to high levels of cobalt can result in lung and heart effects and dermatitis. Phil may have gotten his exposure to cobalt by undergoing radiation therapy treatment of deep-seated cancer.
But, there are no “Cobalt Weapons” except in “Flash Gordon” stories.
Later, Phil said “right now I am dying of cancer that I contracted because of my work for the federal government”.
Phil said he had a “Rhyolite-38” clearance factor – one of the highest in the world.
Rhyolite was a top-secret surveillance satellite system developed at TRW. Rhyolite is referred in SIGINT (Signal Intelligence) satellites. Phil was not involved with this type of work.
No, he did not have a Rhyolite clearance.
No, Phil Schneider was nothing more than a narcissistic liar and fabricator.
But one thing Schneider succeeded was in staging his own “murder” as a last resort in order to relieve himself of physical pain and, at the same time, creating a legacy of immortal personality cult among many of the brainwashed, gullible folks who inhabit the world of Ufology.
HERE IS A TESTIMONY FROM CHARLES GILBERT WRIGHT FROM NEW JERSEY:
“Yes, this information (Norio Hayakawa’s information) agrees with what I found out from Phil’s brother and sister, and friends of Ron Rummel, and other friends of Phil’s. Thank you for sharing. It is so easy for information to circulate round and round on the internet.
It was back in the late 1990’s when I called Phil’s brother George on the phone who was working then at the Portland River Patrol and he had his sister, Polly send me a letter also. The Schneider family came from Russia in the late 1800’s and were Jewish, and the family was deeply hurt when Phil lied and said his father was a German U-Boat commander during WWII, when in reality his father was a medical officer in the US Navy. His uncle is an attorney in Portland. I think I did this research in 1996, 22 years ago, so a whole new generation is now reading all this stuff that has taken on a life of it’s own. Separating the BS from the truth is difficult, but well worth it. Norio, we moved back to NJ in 2012. Good to hear from you again.”
HERE IS ANOTHER VERY INTERESTING COMMENT FROM HIS ONE-TIME ROOMMATE:
From G. Clinton:
What I know about Phil Schneider:
“This morning in the state of boredom I decided to look up and see if I can find anything about people I used to know on Google.
Imagine my surprise to find that there was a cult of Phil Schneider who I knew very well in 1977 though 1980.
I moved to Portland, Oregon in 1977 unemployed and very short on funds. I moved into a very cheap rooming house
Shortly after I moved in Phil Schneider moved in. It didn’t take me very long at all to realize that he was a liar. And I thought he was mentally ill.
His missing fingers:
He told me that he had lost them when he was working in eastern Oregon as a lineman when he had some sort of mishap on a pole (frankly I no longer recall the details; it has been nearly 40 years).
His chest wound:
I took him to the hospital.
One day as I was talking to other roomers in the common room, Phil came down the stairs with blood on his shirt saying he’d been shot. A story he quickly changed to somehow being inflicted by a passing car having losing a snow stud which struck him in the chest causing the wounds. No one present believed him, of course, but it was certainly not the time for discussions of his credibility. I took him to the hospital.
After a short time one of the ER doctors came up to me and asked if I had any influence with Phil. I said,”not really.” The doctor said that they would like to keep him for a psych evaluation but had no grounds to do so. I was asked to try to convince Phil to voluntarily submit.
At this point and having my own suspicions I said to the doctor, ” you suspect it’s self-inflicted?” The doctor said, yes.
I did talk to Phil a little bit, of course he refused.
I wish I could remember which hospital in Portland it was. Unfortunately I just don’t. But there should be records.
This happened in possibly late 77 more likely 78 perhaps even early 79.
There is more I could talk about. But none of it would be particularly germaine.
By the time I parted company with Phil, entirely, probably sometime in 1980, I was of the very solid opinion that Phil was disturbed and probably a danger to himself but not others (I should note here that I’m completely unqualified in any clinical sense to say these things.)
Now I know that no one has any particular reason to give my testimony any credibility.
But, there it is. I hope that this may help slightly for some people to be suspicious of anything he said. I certainly was and am.
Phil Schneider was not a horrible person. Hell was certainly at some level delusional. He was for a short time a very flawed friend of mine.”
Also, please click and read the following:
Here is an interesting information provided by Chris White. “There are newly released (via FOIA FBI) docs that show how Phil lost his fingers. He cut them off himself while in a mental health facility“:
