In the 1950s creatures were arriving here to do battle against humankind. They flew over the White House, attacked home and hearth and in general ransacked Mother Earth. But that was only up on the giant Hollywood screen – or so it seemed. A new book indicates that we may have been attacked without realizing it and that the facts have been hidden away by the same folks who declared Roswell a hoax.
In a series of rather astonishing disclosures, the New York Times recently revealed in a provocative front page story that the military had spent over $20 million dollars on the study of UFOs and the creation of an “advanced aerospace threat identification program,” to ascertain if UFOs pose a threat either to individual witnesses or to the entire population of our planet. Fostering heightened speculation, they continue to hide their confidential studies concerning the physiological and psychological effects of UFOs on close encounter victims as well as their influence over commercial, private and military aircraft, and their ability to go so far as to injure by incineration, radioactivity – or other means – those that might have gotten too close to an unidentified object on the ground or in the air. This aforementioned recently published book seeks to ask – and to answer – some very important questions concerning the uncontrollable and unpredictable nature of this perplexing phenomenon.
Once it is a given that UFOs and their alien occupants are real, the next question that must be answered is: Are they friendly or hostile?
Students of the subject will quickly acknowledge that this is not an easy question to answer. There is ample evidence, based on case histories and educated speculation, to argue either case.
With this latest offering from Inner Light/Global Communications, which publisher Timothy Green Beckley has entitled “UFO Hostilities and the Evil Alien Agenda: Lethal Encounters with Ultra-terrestrials Exposed,” one can easily see where this one is coming from. Beckley has assembled the usual suspects from among his team of collaborating writers, all of whom have collectively covered the subject of hostile aliens as thoroughly as one could wish. The resulting tome is 450+ pages of terrifying case histories, photos and art that will leave you wishing for a warm, fuzzy “ET-like” creature to land and relieve you from the dark truths you must confront as you read this gut-wrenching volume of alien evil and human helplessness.
A PRAGMATIC SCIENTIST GRAPPLES WITH THE HOSTILITY QUESTION
Dr. James E. McDonald (1920-1971) was a leading member of the University of Arizona’s Institute of Atmospheric Physics. His hypothesis that UFOs were extraterrestrial instruments on information gathering missions and his belief that the scientific reports of the time, including 1968’s Condon Report, were superficially done led him to investigate sightings and to combat governmental impediments against his research.
“UFO Hostilities and the Evil Alien Agenda” reprints a statement McDonald submitted to the House Committee on Science and Astronautics at the July 29, 1968, Symposium on Unidentified Flying Objects, held at the Rayburn Building in Washington, D.C.
“Official statements have emphasized,” McDonald writes, “for the past two decades, that there is no evidence of hostility in the UFO phenomena. To a large degree, this same conclusion seems indicated in the body of evidence gathered by independent investigators. The related question as to POTENTIAL hazard is perhaps less clear.”
McDonald then listed several types of UFO encounter that were potentially hazardous, as when the UFOs seem able to stop a moving car dead in its tracks, to inflict mild radiation exposure and on occasion to inflict more serious physical injuries.
The careful scientist admitted that he knew of at least two cases that he would say involved “overt hostility” on the part of the aliens. One involved a young boy in Beallsville, Ohio, who had to be treated for burns at the local hospital after encountering an oval-shaped object with lights on it. The craft emitted a flash that set the young boy’s jacket on fire.
“There is much more detail than can be recapitulated here,” McDonald writes. “My conversations with persons who know the boy, including his teacher, suggest no reason to discount the story, despite its unusual content.”
Another “overt hostility” case known to McDonald involved burn injuries of an even more serious nature, but he declined to give the details in his report to Congress. McDonald died in 1971 from his own hand, said to be motivated by his wife’s decision to leave him for another man and the ridicule the scientist suffered for his outspoken belief that UFOs are genuine alien spacecraft. His death is still considered “questionable” nearly 50 years later.
THE LEAD MASK MURDERS OF BRAZIL
In the weeks before his death in May of 2018, legendary UFO/paranormal researcher-author Brad Steiger granted Beckley permission to use some of his research involving the subject of hostile UFOs which he had collected early in his career.
In a chapter in the new book called “Patterns of Horror,” Steiger writes, “During the many, many years that UFOs have been actively researched, many widely divergent theories concerning their goals and objectives have been advanced. UFO actions have been interpreted as brotherly, benign, and protective; as indifferent, aloof, and superior; and as inquisitive, aggressively curious, and occasionally militant.
“Certain saucer cultists,” Steiger continues, “who have been expecting space brethren to bring some pie from the sky, continue to deliver saucer-inspired sermons on the theme that the UFOs come to bring starry salvation to a troubled world. The self-appointed ministers who preach this extraterrestrial brand of evangelism ignore the fact that not all ‘saucers’ can be considered friendly. Many give evidence of hostile actions. There is a wealth of well-documented evidence that UFOs have been responsible for murders, assaults, burnings with direct-ray focus, radiation sickness, kidnappings, pursuits of automobiles, attacks on homes, disruptions of power sources, paralysis, mysterious cremations and destruction of aircraft.”
Among the many instances of negative UFO manifestations recounted by Steiger is one that took place in August 1966. Inspector Jose Venancio Bittencourt of the Rio de Janeiro police was faced with what he termed “the most baffling mystery in my twenty-three years on the force.”
“On August 20,” Steiger’s account begins, “police had discovered the bodies of two electronics technicians, Miguel Jose Viana and Manuel Pereira de Cruz, one-thousand feet up a hillside in the Rio suburb of Niteroi. The bodies had been found after a woman, who lived nearby, had reported to the authorities that she had seen a flying saucer land on the jungled slope of Morro do Vintem. The woman had been so insistent in her claim that police had been dispatched to placate her. The officers had not known what they might find, but they had not expected to find two corpses.”
Beyond the discovery of the dead men, there were further strange details, according to Steiger.
“Both men had covered their faces with lead masks before they died. Several slips of paper were found near the bodies. Notations on several of the papers had been made in some strange kind of code.”
Exhaustive laboratory tests were unable to determine the cause of death of either of the electronics technicians.
“There was no medical reason, within the ability of the state police lab,” Inspector Bittencourt said, “to detect for the deaths. Our lab men have ruled out the possibility of poison, violence or asphyxiation.”
After the case had been reported in the local media, other witnesses came forward. Mrs. Gracindo de Souza, wife of a member of the local stock exchange, told police that she and her daughter had been driving in the area and had seen a UFO hovering over the clearing where the bodies were later discovered. In addition, a watchman, Raulino de Matos, saw the technicians arrive at the mountain in a jeep with two other men. When the four started to climb the hillside, de Matos had paid no further attention.
The dead technicians were found lying side by side, their arms at their sides. There were no signs of a struggle. Investigators did find blood nearby, but laboratory tests established that it had not come from either of the victims. The masks that covered the men’s faces were the kind commonly used in electronics to protect the eyes from burns.
When premiere UFO researcher Jacques Vallee studied the case notes, he concurred that the two men had been witness to a UFO. Vallee even went so far as to say that the two men were at least hopeful, if not expecting, to witness such a craft due to the lead masks that he theorized they intended to use to protect them from any harmful rays.
After an extensive month-long investigation, the Brazilian police admitted their failure to solve “the lead mask murders.”
“Crude lead masks,” Steiger writes. “Two dead men in their unruffled Sunday suits, lying side by side. Strange, undecipherable codes. Two other unidentified men who may have also been victims, their bodies yet to be discovered.
“Are these clues to a murder mystery which has baffled the most determined investigators? Or are they additional manifestations of a malignant, yet intelligent, course of action which, when viewed in a certain perspective, will indicate an ever-increasing pattern of horror of worldwide significance?
“To be direct: What of the UFOs that had been sighted hovering above and landing on the hillside on the day the technicians were killed and the day their bodies were discovered? Had the two electronics technicians kept a rendezvous with the UFO occupants and found, to their ultimate terror, that the aliens were not the benign space brethren they had been led to expect? Had Viana and de Cruz discovered that some extraterrestrials have come not to issue pronouncements of universal peace, but to conquer?”
ALVIN MOORE AND THE BLOODSTAINED HANDS OF THE ALIENS
One of the chapters contributed by publisher and editor Beckley concerns Alvin Moore, one of the better credentialed figures in the field of Ufology.
Moore was educated at the U.S. Naval Academy plus the George Washington School of Law and Louisiana State University. He worked as a patent engineer and attorney for the Werner von Braun team of space scientists. He was also a nautical scientist in the employ of the Navy and a CIA intelligence officer. Beckley would later publish a book by Moore called “Diary of a CIA Operative.” Moore spent nearly 25 years researching mysterious events attributable to UFOs and extraterrestrials.
“His conclusions are utterly shocking,” Beckley writes, “and certainly deserve further investigation despite attempts by so-called ‘serious Ufologists’ to sweep this aspect of the phenomenon under the cosmic rug.”
According to Moore, aliens known as “Skymen” have been coming to Earth and exploiting it for many years. Some of them have homes in caverns on the moon, Mars and its satellite Phoebus, Jupiter as well as among the asteroids. Many more originate from much nearer to the Earth’s surface, from “Sky Islands,” or even from within the hollows of our planet and possibly underwater hangars. Sky chemicals and electrostatic gravity-like force of the alien Sky Islands and Skycraft have caused legions of accidents. Skymen have kidnapped a multitude of people and have long extracted blood from animals and men, as well as committed mysterious murders.
One of the case histories Moore collected and wrote about was this one:
On the night of May 10, 1951, police found a young woman screaming on a street corner in Manila. She was crying out that she was being bitten by something and seemed to be fighting something in the air around her. She was eighteen years old and her name was Clarita Villanueva. The police arrested her. She said she was being bitten by something that looked like a man with big bulging eyes, wearing a black cape, and able to float in the air.
After she was locked up in a cell, she began screaming that the thing was coming at her through the prison bars. A policeman unlocked the door and brought her out, still screaming. And then he was astounded to see punctures that looked like teeth marks being formed on her arms and shoulders. The next morning, in the presence of policemen and Medical Examiner Dr. Mariana Lara, the screaming girl was again attacked by a being or object, invisible to the men. For five minutes, the punctures appeared on her arms, the back of her shoulders, and the back of her neck. Then she fainted.
The Mayor of Manila and the medical examiner accompanied the woman in a car to the prison hospital. On the way, she began screaming again, and the horrified men saw what looked like teeth punctures appear on both sides of her throat. They saw that her arms and hands were badly swollen from previous punctures. Obviously, this was a case of blood extraction by a floating being or object – probably object – that could be made invisible.
“A number of persons who have been captured by alien ‘Skymen’ have reported their extraction of ‘blood samples,’” Moore said. But the aliens’ need for the blood probably goes beyond the mere taking of samples for medical reasons. Still, the samples’ ultimate purpose remains unknown. Also, the UFO invisibility factor, as in the case of the Manila woman being bitten by unseen teeth, has been studied extensively. The late abduction pioneer Budd Hopkins, in his 2003 book “Sight Unseen: Science, UFO Invisibility and Transgenic Beings,” writes at length about events like alien ships that appear in broad daylight on a family’s front lawn to carry out an abduction, yet the whole event remains completely hidden from the neighbors.
A SERIOUS CASE OF RADIATION BURNS
In a chapter co-written by Beckley and (full disclosure) myself, we touch on the well-known Cash-Landrum case, which involved two middle-aged Texas women in the wrong place at the wrong time. We relied partially on the account given by Jerome Clark in his encyclopedic “The UFO Book.”
“On the evening of December 29, 1980, near Huffman, Texas,” Clark writes, “three occupants of a 1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass observed a remarkable sight. Betty Cash, Vickie Landrum, and Vickie’s seven-year-old grandson, Colby, on their way home to Dayton, were driving through the southern tip of the east Texas piney woods when they noticed a large light above the trees some distance ahead.
“The light was briefly lost to view,” Clark continued, “but they saw it again when after rounding a curb they found themselves on a straight stretch of two-lane road on Highway FM 1485. This time it was approaching them, floating above the road at less than treetop height and belching flames from its bottom. Cash and the Landrums were only about 130 feet from the object.”
Landrum told Cash to stop the car, fearing they would get burned if they got too close. However, as a born again Christian, she quickly reinterpreted the object as a sign of the Second Coming of Jesus. She even told Colby that the light was Jesus and would do them no harm.
Meanwhile, it was impossible to simply drive away because the road was narrow and the shoulders soggy. Betty Cash, who was driving, knew that the car would get stuck if she tried to turn around. Since there was no other traffic on the lonesome stretch of road, she stepped out of the car, as did Vickie Landrum. Vickie returned to the car as soon as she heard Colby screaming in fear.
“The object, intensely bright and a dull metallic color,” writes Clark, “was shaped like a huge upright diamond, about the size of the Dayton water tower, with its top and bottom cut off so that they were flat rather than pointed. Small blue lights ringed the center and periodically, over the next few minutes, flames shot out of the bottom, flaring outward, creating the effect of a large cone. Every time the fire dissipated, the UFO floated a few feet downwards toward the road. But when the flames blasted out again, the object rose about the same distance. The witnesses said the heat was strong enough to make the car’s metal body painful to touch.”
The object then moved to a point higher in the sky. As it ascended over the treetops, the witnesses claimed that a group of helicopters approached the object and surrounded it in a tight formation. Cash and Landrum counted 23 helicopters and later identified some of them as tandem-rotor CH-47 Chinooks, routinely used by military forces worldwide.
The UFO and the helicopters were then “lost to view,” according to Clark, and the three resumed their journey. The whole incident had taken 20 minutes.
But what followed for Cash and the Landrums after their return home was unexpected sickness and misery.
Cash began to suffer a headache and nausea that would not go away, and large knots formed on her neck and scalp. Soon they became blisters. Also, her skin was reddening and her eyes swelled. She threw up repeatedly and experienced severe diarrhea. The Landrums were experiencing similar symptoms, though not as intensely.
Cash’s friends soon feared she was near death because she had lapsed into near-unconsciousness. She was taken to the emergency room at Parkway Hospital on January 3, 1981. She could not walk and had lost large patches of skin and clumps of hair. The Landrums improved slightly, though the sores on their skin and the damage to their eyes persisted. Vickie suffered periodic sickness over the next few years and Colby had problems with chronic illness, sores and hair loss.
“A radiologist who reviewed the victims’ medical records for the Mutual UFO Network,” writes Clark, “concluded ‘We have strong evidence that these patients have suffered damage secondary to ionizing radiation. It is also possible that there was an infrared or ultraviolet component as well.’”
Cash and Landrum undertook a long and frustrating campaign to get compensation for their injuries from the government but were unable to prove that either the diamond-shaped craft or the military helicopters were the property of any governmental or military entity.
Cash died at the age of 71 on December 29, 1998, eighteen years to the day after her close encounter.
Landrum died September 12, 2007, seven days before her 84th birthday.
THE TIP OF THE PROVERBIAL ICEBERG
The foregoing has been just the tip of the iceberg in terms of chronicling the cases that demonstrate the negative aspects of the UFO and alien phenomenon, and Beckley has gathered a selection of writers to cover the subject thoroughly and objectively.
The hostile aliens attack us even with noxious smells and odors, as Tim R. Swartz explains in one chapter. A writer using the pseudonym Hercules Invictus gives an overview of the wicked among the Greek gods on Olympus, while Hispanic writer Scott Corrales covers the evil aliens and their intrusions into the Spanish-speaking regions of the Americas. Allen Greenfield recounts folkloric encounters with fairies that seem suspiciously like meetings with the ubiquitous diminutive gray aliens.
No one wants to abandon the cherished idea that the aliens are potentially here to save us from ourselves. But, as this book’s back cover claims, there is irrefutable proof that UFOs could be perilous to your health, your well-being, and even your life – and in an extreme case scenario could doom all of humanity. Because of the frightening nature of its fully-documented findings, this may well be the most startling book you will ever read on the subject of UFOs. Hundreds of alarming cases are detailed here – and it is evident that there is no place to hide.
