I began my research on the UFO phenomenon around 1961.

That’s more than 60 years of continuous study.

After more than 60 years of research on this topic, I am not ashamed to say that to me the UFO phenomenon seems to be real, even though I have personally never observed what I can confidently say is a UFO, so far.

Yes, I believe in the reality of the UFO phenomenon.

However, I can also state that the UFO phenomenon does not constitute conclusive evidence of actual physical ET visitations by physical extraterrestrial biological entities piloting or maneuvering physical extraterrestrial spacecraft of any kind.

There is more to this phenomenon than the physical ET hypothesis.  I am also highly skeptical of the existence of authentic UFO artifacts.

In fact, there is not a single physical, tangible, solid as well as credible documentary evidence whatsoever that we have ever been visited by physical extraterrestrial biological entities in any physical extraterrestrial spacecraft.

By the way, Area 51 in Nevada and Dulce, New Mexico are two of my favorite topics.

I can confidently state that there seems to be no evidence of any UFO or “alien” connections to Area 51 in Nevada  (which I have continuosly researched since around 1988).

To me, Area 51 is a very important US Air Force’s research, development and testing complex for advanced military weapons systems integrated with avionics and aeronautics and continues to expand every year.

It involves our hard-earned tax dollars and rightfully deserves its role in protecting our nation from global threats, domestic or foreign.

As far as Dulce is concerned, there is no evidence at all that there is a US/Alien collaborative biological underground facility or base in Dulce, New Mexico.

Yet, reports of sightings of strange objects seem to continue in the Dulce area, indicating that the phenomenon itself seems to be active in that area.

There is no doubt in my mind that this region of New Mexico has had strange paranormal activity associated with it.

Although there has never been any credible, solid, physical evidence whatsoever that there is a US/Alien collaborative underground biological facility or base there, reports of sightings of strange objects  (as well as occasional sightings of military helicopters over the community)  seem to continue in the Dulce area.

But before we take a look at them, here is a very short background information about Dulce, New Mexico:


Dulce is located in a beautiful environment:

(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – Dulce has many pretty lakes such as Stone Lake and several others, including a small lake such as the Dulce Lake above)

Here is The Dulce Rock:



Dulce was founded by the Gomez family as a ranching operation.  The original name was “Agua Dulce“, Spanish for “sweet water”, because of the presence of natural springs that provided good drinking water for the people and their animals.

The original homestead was founded in 1877 by Jose Eugenio Gomez.  The Jicarilla Apache reservation was established in 1887 when the Apache people were forced into a reservation.


The Gomez Ranch is currently kept under Manuel Gomez ownership, though surrounded by reservation land.

Now let’s look at the early beginnings of the “UFO” connection to Dulce.


According to a testimony given by former Dulce, New Mexico resident Darren Vigil Gray, it was in the late 1960s that this amazing incident took place on Hwy 64 between Dulce and Lumberton.

At that time Darren was a fourth grader on the Jicarilla Apache reservation in northern Rio Arriba County.

At around 6:30 a.m. that particular morning, he claims he saw a flying saucer on his way to a parochial school which was located in nearby Lumberton.

A “dirty metallic colored” disk about 20 feet in diameter passed about 50 feet in the air over his school bus between Dulce and Lumberton, he said.

“It created all this chaos on the bus,” Gray said.  He said his brother, then a sixth-grader, yelled, “It’s a flying saucer !”,  but the priest driving the van didn’t stop to investigate the phenomenon and instead stepped on the gas.


Gray said the disk appeared to come from Archuleta Mesa and continued for several miles over the low hills south of the highway.

He said cattle mutilations soon began to be reported in the same area, and the mesa was said to be a sort of UFO base.

“The experience really changed my whole scope,” said Gray, now a well-known artist in Santa Fe:

This incident was also confirmed by a former Dulce rancher Edmund Gomez, who was also among more than a dozen students in that school bus:

The Gomez family had the largest ranch in the Dulce area at that time.  Beginning around 1975, the Gomez family began to report many incidents of cattle mutilations in their ranch, which were soon investigated by State Patrol Officer Gabe Valdez, who was assigned by the State of New Mexico to find out what was actually happening.

To this date, the cattle mutilation incidents in the Dulce area of those years still remain unsolved.  – – both Edmund Gomez and the late Gabe Valdez have expressed their belief that it was the government, and not the aliens, that were perpetrating these incidents and that it may have had something to do with the government’s attempt to covertly investigate the radiation effects on local cattle resulting from the 1967 underground nuclear experiment  (Project Gasbuggy  – December 10, 1967)  which took place about 22 miles southwest of Dulce.

But, getting back to that strange incident involving a “flying saucer” in Dulce, Edmund Gomez stated that he was also in that bus and was a witness:

“There were more than a dozen students riding in that bus”,  he stated.

This incident was mentioned in Albuquerque Journal by Tom Sharp on April 5, 1996:


By the way, here are some interesting photos taken by the late Paul Bennewitz at the Archuleta Mesa when he first started exploring the area, ca. 1979, 1980  (photos, courtesy of Christian Lambright , author of  X DESCENDING, who presented these at a conference on June 16, 2018 in Santa Fe, New Mexico).   Film developing flaw?   Lens anomaly?    Lens flare?   It’s difficult to say:

Here is the first photo taken by Bennewitz of alleged “objects” allegedly entering through a wall of the Archuleta Mesa.   Like I stated above, could it have been a film developing flaw?  Lens anomaly?   Lens flare?    It’s difficult to say:

But I must mention here that Paul Bennewitz’s more important sightings did not take place in Dulce, but at the Manzano Underground Nuclear Storage facility at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Doty of AFOSI at Kirtland Air Force Base that prompted him to immediately contact Bennewitz in 1979 and made Bennewitz eventually steer his attention away from Kirtland AFB to a remote location 200 miles north, i.e., to Dulce, New Mexico inside the Jicarilla Apache reservation.

Now, let’s talk about the UFO phenomenon itself  in general.

As I stated earlier,  the UFO phenomenon seems to be real.   There is no question about it.

By the way, the phenomenon itself is not new.

It has existed since time immemorial.

There are historical records of people seeing strange objects in the skies, throughout history, such as “flying shields”.

The depiction of the objects seen seems to correspond to the cultural as well as technological understanding of the people of each era.   In modern times, the objects seen seem to be more aerodynamic in form.

In the late 1700s and early 1800s, people reported seen strange objects that appeared to be huge, rather crude-looking airships.

Later on, actual airships and other dirigibles were built by the U.S.

In the early 1980s when the U.S. was testing prototypes of stealth aircraft, there were many reports of humongous flying triangular craft over the East coast, which had nothing to do with prototypes being tested by the U.S. Air Force.

Reported humongous triangular craft  (sometimes reported to be 3 or 4 times the size of a football field)  hovered absolutely silently in the night skies.

No, they did not belong to the U.S. Air Force.

To me, here is the bottom line – – and it may sound stranger and stranger.

The phenomenon appears to me as a temporary paraphysical intrusion into our physical dimension by an unknown intelligence or unknown sentient entitities, paraphysically materializing themselves to a pre-selected observer (or a group of observers) and presenting to the observer as a physical phenomenon.

The pre-selection also seems to include a particular location as well as a particular time.

The phenomenon seems to be able to materialize and de-materialize at will.

(Great researchers such as Dr. Jacques Vallee, John A. Keel and Dr. J. Allen Hynek all seem to be in agreement here).

However, the phenomenon does not seem to be able to survive in our physical dimension except for a few seconds or a few minutes at a time.

According to these researchers, the phenomenon seems to be able to temporarily affect our physical parameters  (such as radar, etc.)

Yet the phenomenon also seems to be incapable of being photographed with clarity, if at all.

Here comes my personal belief.  (No matter how strange this may sound, it is simply my  personal belief.)

It is my belief that in this incredibly vast universe  (better yet, multiverse),  there exist what I describe as paraphysical sentient entities, both benevolent and malevolent types, (with a ratio of 2 to 1,  i.e.,  two out of every three entities are of benevolent nature). 

(Eons ago, one third of all cosmic, sentient, paraphysical angelic entities were thrown out of their special domain by the Creator for participating in a cosmic-shaking revolt led by Lucifer who became Satan, and his followers “fallen angels”  – – as suggested in Revelation 12:4 – – many biblical scholars seem to support this interpretation)

They have co-existed with us since time immemorial.   It seems that the benevolent types are seldom seen in their temporary materialized form but it is my personal belief that they are doing good works  (without being visible),  often giving us protection from perilous situations.

The “malevolent”, deceptive entities are the ones that are paraphysically materializing themselves and presenting themselves as physical “alien” entities from advanced extraterrestrial civilizations originating from outer space and piloting or maneuvering their extraterrestrial spacecraft.

No, I doubt very much that they are extraterrestrial visitors from outer space – – but rather, a newly disguised version of extra-dimensional “tricksters” of old.

The lesser known side of the late Art Bell, pioneer of conspiracy radio talk show

Everybody knows that Art Bell had passed away on April 13, 2018 at his home in Pahrump, Nevada.  Everybody knows who Art Bell was.  But not everybody knows about:


Art Bell became an FCC-licensed radio technician at age 13 and once set a Guinness World Record for broadcasting solo for 116 straight hours while working as a DJ at KSBK in Okinawa, Japan:

By the age of 13, Art was an FCC licensed radio technician.

A few years later, as a young airman, Bell and an equally foolhardy buddy built their own pirate radio station right on Amarillo Air Force base, secretly broadcasting rock ‘n’ roll to appreciative locals. 

These kinds of antics were not limited to bootleg military radio. 

As a civilian DJ, Art Bell landed in the Guinness Book of Records for a 116 hour (and 15 minutes) solo broadcast marathon “playing the hits” on KSBK on Okinawa, Japan

Then he raised money in Alaska that allowed Art to charter a DC 8, fly to Vietnam and rescue 130 Vietnamese Orphans stranded in Saigon at the war’s end.
They were eventually all brought to America and adopted by American families. 

Art’s no-nonsense demeanor didn’t fool his listeners who sensed he was more complex underneath.

Art Bell’s political views were complex as well. 

He spent years on the island of Okinawa, living a Japanese lifestyle and working for KSBK, the only English speaking station in Asia.
It gave him a Pacific Rim perspective and a grasp of international affairs that few talk show hosts really have. 

That plus his military background and his love of the news, made Art Bell a natural talk show host, a man who understood how politics, human nature, and cultural dynamics can affect national and international stability for better or for worse.


It was such an honor for me to have appeared on his program, back in 1995:
