It’s possible we may be alone in the known universe

As I stated numerous times before:

There is not a single, physical, tangible, solid as well as credible documentary evidence whatsoever, so far, that we have ever been visited by physical extraterrestrial biological entities in any physical extraterrestrial spacecraft of any kind.

In fact, so far, there is no evidence whatsoever that there are intelligent, sentient, physical extraterrestrial biological entities commonly known as “aliens” anywhere.

As much as we like to believe, the UFO phenomenon does not represent any conclusive evidence whatsoever of actual physical ET visitations.

Even former colleague of mine, the late William “Bill” Cooper, author of BEHOLD A PALE HORSE, stated that “there are no aliens”, “no alien abductions” and “no alien cattle mutilations” – – CLICK AND READ THE FOLLOWING:

“There are no aliens, no alien abductions and no alien cattle mutilations”, said William  ‘Bill’  Cooper, author of BEHOLD A PALE HORSE

And now here comes a recent collaborating item from the scientists at Oxford University:


by Natalie O’Neill, NEW YORK POST – – June 26, 2018″


Humans may be alone in the universe and will never meet other intelligent life forms, according to a cosmically depressing new study.

Scientists at Oxford University have determined that aliens don’t exist in a report that says human beings are likely flying solo in outer space.

Researchers at Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute came to the conclusion that humans are alone in the universe while examining the so-called “Fermi Paradox” — which ponders why scientists believe in extraterrestrials despite having zero proof.

“We find a substantial probability of there being no other intelligent life in our observable universe, and thus that there should be little surprise when we fail to detect any signs of it,” researchers say in the report, published in the online journal  earlier this month.

There’s likely no intelligent life outside of Earth — so there’s no need to waste time theorizing about humanity’s relationship with aliens, notes the paper, dubbed “Dissolving the Fermi Paradox.”

The paradox, named after physicist Enrico Fermi (of Los Alamos National Laboratory of New Mexico) questions how there could be “a high probability” of extraterrestrial life when there’s no solid proof.

Where is everyone?” Fermi asked in the 1950s while pondering the possibility of interstellar travel.

Past scientific theories have said alien civilizations may be living in our galaxy based on seven factors — including the position of star formations and how long creatures are able to survive.

But Oxford researchers Anders Sandberg, Eric Drexler and Toby Ord say the simplest solution is likely the truth:  There’s no one else out there.

“There should be little surprise when we fail to detect any signs of [aliens],” it notes.

On the brighter side, those fearing an alien invasion can now rest easy.

Skunk Works celebrates 75th anniversary of innovation and secrecy

by Tom Demerly, THE AVIATIONIST, June 14, 2018


No one outside of its very opaque walls knows how many projects the secretive Lockheed “Skunk Works” have developed, and how many flops they’ve had.  But everyone in defense and aerospace knows the Lockheed Skunk Works broke barriers in innovation and defense acquisition that changed the world and toppled superpowers.  It likely continues to do so today, behind a thick veil of secrecy.

While no one in the public domain knows what the Skunk Works is working on now, the one thing that is certain is they are working on something.   A host of projects has been discussed by the U.S. Air Force and Lockheed that include hypersonic remotely piloted and manned strike and reconnaissance platforms.

In 2017 Aviation Week magazine wrote that, “One such technology demonstrator, believed to be an unmanned subscale aircraft, was observed flying into the U.S. Air Force’s Plant 42 at Palmdale, where Skunk Works is headquartered.  The vehicle, which was noted landing in the early hours at an unspecified date in late July, was seen with two T-38 escorts.  Lockheed Martin declined to comment directly on the sighting.”

In a rare and stunning reveal in late 2017 at the Society of Aerospace Engineers Exhibition, Lockheed’s Executive Vice President of Aeronautics, Orlando Carvalho, told media about a new “SR-72 program”: “Although I can’t go into specifics, let us just say the Skunk Works team in Palmdale, California, is doubling down on our commitment to speed.”  Carvalho told Aviation Week, “Hypersonics is like stealth.  It is a disruptive technology and will enable various platforms to operate at two to three times the speed of the Blackbird… Security classification guidance will only allow us to say the speed is greater than Mach 5.”

Based on their remarkable 75-year history two things we do know about the Skunk Works’ current projects are; they are certainly working on something, and, it will defy our imaginations.

PALE HORSE RIDER: William Cooper, the Rise of Conspiracy, and the Fall of Trust in America – – by Mark Jacobson

A riveting new book (coming out on September 4, 2018) written by NEW YORK MAGAZINE writer Mark Jacobson:

We are living in a time of unprecedented distrust in America:

Faith in the government is at an all-time low, and political groups on both sides of the aisle are able to tout preposterous conspiracy theories as gospel, without much opposition.

“Fake news” is the order of the day.

This book is about a man to whom all of it points, the greatest conspiracist of this generation and a man you may not have heard of.

A former U.S. naval intelligence worker, Milton William Cooper published his manifesto BEHOLD A PALE HORSE in 1991 – – which became widely popular in the mid 90’s to the late 90’s.

Since then it has gone on to sell hundreds of thousands of copies, becoming the number-one bestseller in the American prison system. (Bookscan lists sales at 289,000 since 2005.)

According to BEHOLD A PALE HORSE,  JFK was assassinated — because he was about to reveal that extraterrestrials were about to take over the earth — by his driver;  AIDS is a government conspiracy to decrease the population of blacks, Hispanics, and homosexuals;  and the Illuminati are secretly involved with the U.S. government to manage relationships with extraterrestrials.

Cooper died in a shootout with Apache County police in 2001, one month after September 11, in the year in which he had predicted catastrophe.

Many of Cooper’s conclusions were driven by personal demons and a highly creative connection of dots, and yet they have shaped much of the fabric of American life in the past few decades.   Terry Nichols, Timothy McVeigh’s cohort in the Oklahoma City bombing, was a fan, and BEHOLD A PALE HORSE has great appeal among right-wing radicals.

On the other hand, the book transcends class and race barriers:

It is read primarily by poor blacks in prison and appeals to people who acutely feel that society is fixed against them.  It has inspired numerous hip-hop groups and continues to do so.

In PALE HORSE RIDER, journalist Mark Jacobson not only tells the story of Cooper’s fascinating life but also provides the social and political context for American paranoia.  Indeed, with the present NSA situation and countless other shadowy government dealings often in the news, aren’t we right to suspect that things may not be as they seem?

(By the way, a few years ago I had a great privilege of  getting together with this great writer for the NEW YORK MAGAZINE, Mark Jacobson, in Rio Rancho, New Mexico when he visited me – – I truly enjoyed discussing with him all kinds of fascinating topics.   I will never forget that experience.)

Anthony Bourdain (1956 – 2018) – – May you rest in peace !!


(1956 – 2018)

In 2013, I had a wonderful privilege of been interviewed by Anthony Bourdain when he came to visit New Mexico for his PARTS UNKNOWN New Mexico Episode.

At that time I was not aware that he had joined CNN and was not even aware that the title of his program was going to be PARTS UNKNOWN.

The producers asked where would be a good place for the interview.
I suggested the parking lot of the Nuclear Museum in Albuquerque, right next to Kirtland Air Force Base, since I understood that the topic with me was going to be about UFOs and extraterrestrials in New Mexico and about the our group called the “New Mexico UFO and Paranormal Forum”.

It was a perfect background because there was a tall replica of Redstone rocket there, alluding to the importance of rocketry in the U.S. and the beginning of post-World War II Space Age in New Mexico.

The interview was held way after midnight.
I believe that Anthony Bourdain and his crew were tasting some street tacos at a taco stand on Central Avenue that night, prior to our interview.

There wasn’t a soul in the spacious parking lot except for Lesley Gunter, writer for the UFO Magazine and who was instrumental in bringing Bourdain and his crew to Albuquerque.

At the parking lot, I explained to Anthony Bourdain the importance of rocketry and the importance of Sandia/Manzano Base inside Kirtland Air Force Base.
We also talked about UFOs.
He seemed to be very interested.

He said he was aware of the existence of Black Projects, as well as Operation Paperclip bringing in of German scientists to the U.S.  (particularly to New Mexico)  after the close of World War II.

I was pleasantly surprised.

The person in the middle of the photo is Jim Brockway, aerospace researcher and friend of mine.

Anthony Bourdain was so natural and so authentic, just as I had seen him many times before on TRAVEL CHANNEL’s “No Reservations”.

I was so impressed.

Therefore it was such a shock to me to learn that Anthony Bourdain took his own life on June 8 in France while he was doing his another episode of PARTS UNKNOWN.
I still have a difficult time accepting it.

May you rest in peace, Anthony Bourdain !!

I believe in the reality of the UFO phenomenon

by Norio Hayakawa, researcher, journalist, musician and composer and director of the Civilian Intelligence News Service

Although I have spent many years investigating Area 51 in Nevada to determine the facts on the importance of that facility  (in 1990 I accompanied a Japanese TV crew to the perimeters of the base),  I am skeptical of any UFO or “alien” connection to the base.

The Japanese TV crew and I also visited Dulce, New Mexico subsequently.

In March of 2009 I organized the first Underground Base conference that took place at the Jicarilla Apache community.

Although I subsequently spoke at several conferences on the topic of Dulce, I have expressed my skepticism about the actual physical existence of such a base in New Mexico without debunking the claims of those who have seen some strange goings-on in that area.  In fact I believe that some type of paraphysical phenomena is prevalent in the Dulce region.

My research in the field of Ufology and related subjects has spanned several decades  (since 1961).

I would like to describe myself as an unorthodox Ufologist in the sense that my main interest is on the UFO culture and the diversity of beliefs held by UFO “enthusiasts”, including myself.

I often discuss how I became convinced of the reality of the UFO phenomenon itself, when my skeptical mother had a sighting of what she clearly described then as a “flying saucer” in 1975 during broad daylight in Japan.

But my question is: “Does it represent conclusive evidence of physical ET visitations on Earth? – – or, has the phenomenon always been intentionally deceptive by design?”

I also often discuss about how personal, physical observations of UFOs vary in time and location, which I am convinced is pre-selected and paraphysically “materialized” by extra-dimensional intelligences, for reasons yet unknown.

The Roswell “wreckage” of 1947 – – separating facts from fiction

(Irving Newton, weather officer, photo taken at Gen. Ramey’s office)

As far as I am aware, there were only a handful of people who had witnessed the actual Roswell “wreckage”:

Mac Brazel and his son Vernon Brazel   (both witnessed it on June 14, 1947 at  J.B. Foster ranch)

and then, on July 4, by:

Maj. Jesse Marcel and counter intelligence officer Sheridan Cavitt  (who both witnessed it at  J.B. Foster ranch)

Col. William Blanchard, Brig. Gen. Roger Ramey and weather officer Irving Newton  (at  J.B. Foster ranch, as well as at Gen. Roger Rameys’ office where parts of the fragments were taken to for display).

As I stated, Mac Brazel and his son Vernon Brazel were the first two who witnessed the “wreckage” on June 14, which was a debris field area, 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:


A press conference was held on July 5, 1947 at General Ramey’s office in Roswell.

Prior to the press conference, a weather officer by the name of Irving Newton  (see photo) remembered seeing pieces of what he recognized as a new type of weather balloon  (later identified as a top-secret high altitude reconnaissance equipment called Project Mogul laid out in Ramey’s office.

In 1990, 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.

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.

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 a popular, partially disinformative book came out in 1980 written by a known, self-claimed disinformation agent by the name of William L. Moore, i.e., THE ROSWELL INCIDENT:

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 to collaborate on another “project” (i.e., “disinformation campaign”)  with another self-claimed UFO disinformation agent, Richard C. Doty, who was working as an AFOSI officer at the base.
