Investigations of a buried layer at sites from California to Belgium reveal materials that include metallic microspherules, carbon spherules, nanodiamonds, fullerenes, charcoal, and soot. The layer's composition may indicate that a massive body, possibly a comet, exploded in the atmosphere over the Laurentide Ice Sheet 12,900 years ago. The timing coincides with a great die-off of mammoths and other North American megafauna and the onset of a period of cooling in Northern Europe and elswhere known as the Younger Dryas Event. The American Clovis culture appears to have been dramatically effected, even terminated, at this same time. Speakers will discuss numerous lines of evidence contributing to the impact hypothesis. The nature and frequency of this new kind of impact event could have major implications for our understanding of extinctions and climate change.

Exactly 60 years ago, a light aircraft was flying over the Cascade Mountains in Washington State, at a height of around 10,000ft.
Suddenly, a brilliant flash of light illuminated the aircraft. Visibility was good and as pilot Kenneth Arnold scanned the sky to find the source of the light, he saw a group of nine shiny metallic objects flying in formation.
He estimated their speed as being around 1,600 miles per hour - nearly three times faster than the top speed of any jet aircraft at the time. He described the craft as arrow-shaped and said they moved in a jerky motion - 'like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water'.
A reporter seized on this phrase and in his story described the objects as 'flying saucers'. The age of the Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) had begun.
Soon, similar reports began to come in from all over America. This wasn't just the world's first UFO sighting, this was the birth of a phenomenon, one that still exercises an extraordinary fascination.
Kenneth ArnoldThen, two weeks after Arnold's sighting, something happened that was to lead to the biggest UFO conspiracy theory of all time. On or around July 2, 1947, something crashed in the desert near a military base at Roswell, New Mexico.
Military authorities issued a press release, which began: "The many rumours regarding the flying disc became a reality yesterday when the intelligence officer of the 509th Bomb Group of the Eighth Air Force, Roswell Army Air Field, was fortunate enough to gain possession of a disc."
The headlines screamed: 'Flying Disc captured by Air Force.' Yet, just 24 hours later, the military changed their story and claimed the object they'd first thought was a 'flying disc' was a weather balloon that had crashed on a nearby ranch.
Amazingly, the media and the public accepted the explanation without question, in a way that would not happen now. Roswell disappeared from the news until the late Seventies, when some of the military involved began to speak out.
The key witness was Major Jesse Marcel, the intelligence officer who had gone to the ranch to recover the wreckage. He described the metal as being wafer thin but incredibly tough.
It was as light as balsa wood, but couldn't be cut or burned. Some witnesses described seeing strange inscriptions on the wreckage.
These and similar accounts of the incident have largely been dismissed by all except the most dedicated believers.
But last week came an astonishing new twist to the Roswell mystery - which casts new light on the incident and raises the possibility that we have, indeed, been visited by aliens.
Lieutenant Walter Haut was the public relations officer at the base in 1947, and was the man who issued the original and subsequent press releases after the crash on the orders of the base commander, Colonel William Blanchard.
Haut died last year, but left a sworn affidavit to be opened only after his death.
Last week, the text was released and asserts that the weather balloon claim was a cover story, and that the real object had been recovered by the military and stored in a hangar. He described seeing not just the craft, but alien bodies.
He wasn't the first Roswell witness to talk about bodies. Local undertaker Glenn Dennis had long claimed that he was contacted by authorities at Roswell shortly after the crash and asked to provide a number of child-sized coffins.
When he arrived at the base, he was apparently told by a nurse (who later disappeared) that a UFO had crashed and that small humanoid extraterrestrials had been recovered. But Haut is the only one of the original participants to claim to have seen alien bodies.
Haut's affidavit talks about a high-level meeting he attended with base commander Col William Blanchard and the Commander of the Eighth Army Air Force, Gen Roger Ramey. Haut states that at this meeting, pieces of wreckage were handed around for participants to touch, with nobody able to identify the material.
He says the press release was issued because locals were already aware of the crash site, but in fact there had been a second crash site, where more debris from the craft had fallen. The plan was that an announcement acknowledging the first site, which had been discovered by a rancher, would divert attention from the second and more important location.
Haut also spoke about a clean-up operation, where for months afterwards military personnel scoured both crash sites searching for all remaining pieces of debris, removing them and erasing all signs that anything unusual had occurred.
This ties in with claims made by locals that debris collected as souvenirs was seized by the military.
Haut then tells how Colonel Blanchard took him to 'Building 84' - one of the hangars at Roswell - and showed him the craft itself. He describes a metallic egg-shaped object around 12-15ft in length and around 6ft wide. He said he saw no windows, wings, tail, landing gear or any other feature.
He saw two bodies on the floor, partially covered by a tarpaulin. They are described in his statement as about 4ft tall, with disproportionately large heads. Towards the end of the affidavit, Haut concludes: "I am convinced that what I personally observed was some kind of craft and its crew from outer space."
What's particularly interesting about Walter Haut is that in the many interviews he gave before his death, he played down his role and made no such claims. Had he been seeking publicity, he would surely have spoken about the craft and the bodies.
Did he fear ridicule, or was the affidavit a sort of deathbed confession from someone who had been part of a cover-up, but who had stayed loyal to the end?
Colonel Philip J. CorsoGrey alien, Roswell typeAnother military witness who claimed to know that the Roswell incident involved the crash of an alien spacecraft is Colonel Philip J. Corso, a former Pentagon official who claimed his job was to pass technology from the craft recovered at Roswell to American companies.
He claims that discoveries such as Kevlar body armour, stealth technology, night vision goggles, lasers and the integrated circuit chip all have their roots in alien technology from the Roswell crash.
Corso died of a heart attack shortly after making these claims, prompting a fresh round of conspiracy theories.
As bizarre as Corso's story sounds, it has support from a number of unlikely sources, including former Canadian Minister of Defence Paul Hellyer, who spoke out recently to say that he'd checked the story with a senior figure in the U.S. military who confirmed it was true.
The U.S. government came under huge pressure on Roswell in the Nineties. In July 1994, in response to an inquiry from the General Accounting Office, the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force published a report, The Roswell Report: Fact vs. Fiction in the New Mexico Desert.
The report concluded that the Roswell incident had been attributable to something called Project Mogul, a top secret project using high-altitude balloons to carry sensor equipment into the upper atmosphere, listening for evidence of Soviet nuclear tests.
The statements concerning a crashed weather balloon had been a cover story, they admitted, but not to hide the truth about extraterrestrials.
A second U.S. Air Force report, The Roswell Report: Case Closed, was published in 1997 and focused on allegations that alien bodies were recovered.
It concluded that any claims that weren't entirely fraudulent were generated by people having seen crash test dummies that were dropped from balloons from high altitude as part of Project High Dive - a study aimed at developing safe procedures for pilots or astronauts having to jump from extreme altitudes.
These tests ran from 1954 to 1959 in New Mexico, and the U.S. government suggested that sightings of these dummies might have been the root of stories about humanoid aliens, with people mistaking the dates after so many years, and erroneously linking what they'd seen with the 1947 story of a UFO crash.
Sceptics, of course, will dismiss the testimony left by Haut. After all, fascinating though it is, it's just a story. There's no proof. But if nothing else, this latest revelation shows that, 60 years on, this mystery endures.
UFO enthusiasts plan to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Roswell incident with a series of events. In Roswell itself there will be a conference partly sponsored by the city authorities. Thousands are predicted to attend. Roswell has become not just big news, but big business.
Major Jesse Marcel Sr. with UFO debris from RoswellEver since Kenneth Arnold's sighting and the Roswell incident, UFO sightings have continued to be made around the world.
In the UK, in 1950, the Ministry of Defence's Chief Scientific Adviser, Sir Henry Tizard, said UFO sightings shouldn't be dismissed without proper, scientific investigation.
The MoD set up arguably the most wonderfully named body in the history of the Civil Service, the Flying Saucer Working Party. Its conclusions were sceptical.
It believed UFO sightings were attributable to either misidentifications, hoaxes or delusions. Its final report, dated June 1951, said no further resources should be devoted to investigating UFOs.
But in 1952 a high-profile series of UFO sightings occurred, in which objects were tracked on radar and seen by RAF pilots. The MoD was forced to think again and has had been investigating ever since. To date, the MoD has received more than 10,000 reports.
The best-known UK incident occurred in December 1980 in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk. In the early hours of December 26, personnel at RAF Bentwaters (a base leased to the USAF) reported strange lights in the forest. Thinking an aircraft had crashed, they went to investigate.
What they found, witnesses say, was a UFO. They took photographs (which they were later told hadn't come out) of the brightly illuminated craft and one of the men got close enough to touch the object, which then took off and flew away. The stunned men briefed their bosses, including the deputy base commander, Lieutenant Colonel Charles Halt.
Halt ordered the men to make official witness statements, including sketches of the craft. The following night Halt was at a social function when a flustered airman burst in, saluted and said: "Sir, it's back."
Halt looked confused and said: "What's back?" "The UFO, Sir. The UFO is back," the airman replied.
Halt and a small team went to investigate. His intention, he later reported, was to 'debunk this nonsense'. As they went into the forest, their radios began to malfunction and powerful mobile searchlights cut out. Suddenly, Halt and his team saw the UFO and attempted to get closer. At one point it was directly overhead, shining a bright beam of light down on them.
After these events, Halt ordered an examination of the area where the UFO had been seen on the first night. Three indentations were found in the ground where the craft had landed. A Geiger counter was used and radiation readings were taken, which peaked in the three holes. Halt reported it to the MoD and an investigation began.
This was inconclusive, but Defence Intelligence Staff assessed the radiation readings taken at the landing site were 'significantly higher than the average background'. The MoD's case file on the incident has only recently been released under the Freedom of Information Act.
Another spectacular UFO incident occurred in March 1993. Over six hours, around 60 witnesses in different parts of the UK reported a series of sightings of spectacular UFOs. Many of the witnesses were police officers and the UFO also flew over two military bases in the Midlands, RAF Cosford and RAF Shawbury.
The Meteorological Officer at RAF Shawbury described the UFO as being a vast triangular-shaped craft that moved from a hover to a speed several times faster than an RAF jet in seconds.
He estimated that the UFO was midway in size between a Hercules transport aircraft and a Boeing 747 and said that at one point the craft had been as low as 400ft. He also said that it had been firing a narrow beam of light at the ground and emitting an unpleasant low-frequency hum.
The MoD investigation lasted several weeks and the case file - also recently released - runs to more than 100 pages.
The final briefing submitted to the Assistant Chief of the Air Staff stated: "In summary, there would seem to be some evidence on this occasion that an unidentified object (or objects) of unknown origin was operating over the UK." That is about the most frank admission on UFOs that the MoD has ever made.
Sixty years after Kenneth Arnold's 'flying saucer' sighting, pilots are still seeing UFOs. In April this year, Captain Ray Bowyer, a pilot based in Alderney, saw two bright yellow UFOs in the vicinity of the Channel Islands.
Some of his passengers saw the same thing, another pilot in the area made a similar report and some unusual readings were seen on air traffic control radar. The MoD and the Civil Aviation Authority investigated the incident and no explanation has been found.
Despite any number of hoaxes over the years, interest and belief in UFOs remains strong. Under the Freedom of Information Act, the MoD receives more requests relating to UFOs than on any other subject.
So what is it about UFOs that continues to excite our imaginations? To some people, the subject has become almost a religion and perhaps that gets to the heart of it. Those who study the subject are on a quest not just for the truth, but for meaning. It's a search for the answer to one of the most fundamental questions we can ask - are we alone?

Our earliest ancestors gave up hunter-gathering and took to a settled life up to 400,000 years earlier than previously thought, according to controversial research.
The accepted timescale of Man’s evolution is being challenged by a German archaeologist who claims to have found evidence that Homo erectus — mankind’s early ancestor, who migrated from Africa to Asia and Europe — began living in settled communities long before the accepted time of 10,000 years ago.
The point at which settlement actually took place is the first critical stage in humanity’s cultural development.
Helmut Ziegert, of the Institute of Archaeology at Hamburg University, says that the evidence can be found at excavated sites in North and East Africa, in the remains of stone huts and tools created by upright man for fishing and butchery.
Professor Ziegert claims that the thousands of blades, scrapers, hand axes and other tools found at sites such as Budrinna, on the shore of the extinct Lake Fezzan in southwest Libya, and at Melka Konture, along the River Awash in Ethiopia, provide evidence of organised societies.
He believes that such sites show small communities of 40 or 50 people, with abundant water resources to exploit for constant harvests.
The implications for our knowledge of human evolution — and of our intellectual and social beginnings — are “profound” and a “staggering shift”, he said.
Professor Ziegert used potassium argon isotopic dating, stratigraphy and tool typology to compile his evidence. He will publish his findings this month in Minerva, the archaeology journal.
The news divided scholarly opinion yesterday.
Sean Kingsley, an archaeologist and the managing editor of Minerva, said: “This research is nothing less than a quantum leap in our understanding of Man’s intellectual and social history. For archaeology it’s as radical as finding life on Mars.
“As a veteran of over 81 archaeological surveys and excavations . . . Ziegert is nothing if not scientifically cautious, which makes the current revelation all the more exciting.”
But others were far from convinced. Paul Pettitt, senior lecturer in palaeolithic archaeology at the University of Sheffield, said: “Are they truly the remains of huts and not a natural phenomenon? Do they really date 400,000 years or are they much more recent? The site formation, age and implications are all questionable.”
He said that Homo erectus was a highly mobile hunter, that human remains can accumulate for a number of reasons and that the evidence to be published by Minerva does not indicate a year-round settlement.
Further scepticism was voiced by Paul Bahn, an archaeologist who specialises in the palaeolithic period. Although he believes that Homo erectus was quite advanced and capable of building durable structures, occasionally coming together in large groups, he remains to be convinced about settlements.
He said: “Homo erectus could have been there for a few days. He wouldn’t have carried the tools around. Inevitably, they accumulate. If hunter-gatherers found no cave or rock shelter, it makes sense that they might have built a shelter for a few days or seasonally. Just the fact that they’re made out of stone doesn’t mean they were permanent settlements.
Nick Barton, a lecturer in palaeolithic archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology at the University of Oxford, said: “No unequivocal dating evidence is presented except that based on the typology of the artefacts. It is entirely possible that the site represents a palimpsest of material spanning the palaeolithic to the neolithic.”
Homo erectus — a species that has been recognised since the late 19th century — lived from about 1.6 million to 200,000 years ago, ranging widely from Africa and Asia to parts of Europe. Most of the anatomical differences between Homo erectus and Homo sapiens relate to the skull and teeth, with the former having a jutting browridge, a wide nose and large teeth.
Professor Ziegert said: “The first archaeological revolution in fact was not triggered by anatomically ‘modern humans’ in the neolithic, or indeed in the technological and cultural revolution associated with the upper palaeolithic, but by Homo erectus, upright Man, an altogether different ancestral species making waves at the dawn of humanity.”
After decades of fieldwork, Professor Ziegert is convinced that future discoveries will uphold his conclusions. Under his direction, the University of Hamburg has scheduled a further programme of excavations at Budrinna and Melka Konture over the next four years.
— The year in which evidence of Homo erectus was first discovered, in central Java, Indonesia
By Robert Watts, Whitehall Correspondent, Sunday Telegraph
The European Union is spending £3.8 billion a year on "propaganda" to win over its sceptical citizens, it is claimed.
As well as publishing a plethora of pamphlets and employing an army of public relations staff, the EU has spent hundreds of millions of pounds on teaching aids, school trips and even cartoons.
According to Lee Rotherham, the author of a new book which examines the EU's spending on its image, such initiatives are an "outrageous and cynical attempt to brainwash the young". The Europa Diary, a gift from the EU to schoolchildren, is one example cited by Mr Rotherham in Hearts & Minds: the Tax-funded PR Campaign to Make us Love Brussels.
The diary has been sent to 1.2 million pupils in more than 9,000 schools across Europe. Its calendar includes pages that describe the European Parliament as "the people's voice" and claims that the EU has "improved the quality of people's everyday lives".
A version of the diary sent to Dutch schools describes the European Parliament as the "most important multi-national organ in the world".
Let's Explore Europe Together, an online teaching aid aimed at nine to 12-year-olds, describes the EU as a "really good plan that had never been tried before".
The European Parliament has also funded a cartoon called Operation Red Dragon, featuring a daring, fictitious MEP, Elisa Correr, who becomes "embroiled in a risky and fascinating adventure while in pursuit of her parliamentary activities".
She dodges assassins, hunts down a general who broke an arms embargo, and still has time to debate copyright law in Brussels. The text admits: "European Parliamentarians do not generally lead such dangerous lives ... nevertheless you can learn about the work of an MEP and other European institutions from the story."
In Italy, reports Mr Rotherham, children have been confronted by Camillo e l'Euro in Europa, a cartoon that champions the single currency.
Mr Rotherham said: "Much of this is outrageous propaganda cynically trying to brainwash the young into thinking the EU is an essential part of their lives.
"This stuff is relentlessly positive about the EU's work, with only the tiniest, if any, mention of the counter-arguments or any dissenting voices. Brussels realises it is losing people's hearts and minds and so it is spending more and more of our money on marketing material and hordes of press officers to champion its existence."
Europe's Best Successes, a 51-page pamphlet to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the EU, features lines such as "if you are lucky enough to be a citizen of the EU", and "young people have really benefited from the development of a borderless Europe".
Mr Rotherham also details extensive spending on umbrellas, mouse mats, pencils and other items branded with the EU logo - part of a £2.4 billion budget for European Commission "projects". He also reveals big grants to think-tanks and EU-funded trips to the European Parliament.
Using accounts from across the EU's five main institutions - the European Parliament, Council of Ministers, European Court of Justice, the EU Council and the European Court of Auditors - Mr Rotherham calculates that the total spent on "propaganda" last year across all member states was £3.8 billion out of an overall budget of about £84 billion. Britain contributes about £6.3 billion a year to the EU, more than any other member state.
A spokesman for the European Parliament in London described Mr Rotherham's work as "voodoo economics", and added: "The European Commission, quite rightly, like any public organisation, does spend money on both listening to the public and communicating its activities."
Antony Sutton, is the author of 26 books, many of which can be purchased on-line at Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Liberty House Press at 1-800-343-6180 has copies of America's Secret Establishment and Best Enemy Money Can Buy for sale.
The following interview with Mr. Sutton is dated July 6, 1999
Antony C. Sutton, 74, has been persecuted but never prosecuted for his research and subsequent publishing of his findings. His mainstream career was shattered by his devotion towards uncovering the truth. In 1968, his Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development was published by The Hoover Institute at Stanford University. Sutton showed how the Soviet state's technological and manufacturing base, which was then engaged in supplying the North Vietnamese the armaments and supplies to kill and wound American soldiers, was built by US firms and mostly paid for by the US taxpayers. From their largest steel and iron plant, to automobile manufacturing equipment, to precision ball-bearings and computers, basically the majority of the Soviet's large industrial enterprises had been built with the United States help or technical assistance.
Professor Richard Pipes, of Harvard, said in his book, Survival Is Not Enough: Soviet Realities and America's Future (Simon & Schuster;1984): "In his three-volume detailed account of Soviet Purchases of Western Equipment and Technology . . . [Antony] Sutton comes to conclusions that are uncomfortable for many businessmen and economists. For this reason his work tends to be either dismissed out of hand as 'extreme' or, more often, simply ignored."
The report was too much and Sutton's career as a well-paid member of the academic establishment was under attack and he was told that he "would not survive".
His work led him to more questions than answers. "Why had the US built-up it's enemy? Why did the US build-up the Soviet Union, while we also transferred technology to Hitler's Germany? Why does Washington want to conceal these facts?"
Sutton, following his leads, proceeded to research and write his three outstanding books on Wall Street: and FDR; and the Rise of Hitler; and The Bolshevik Revolution. Then, someone sent Antony a membership list of Skull and Bones and--"a picture jumped out". And what a picture! A multigenerational foreign-based secret society with fingers in all kinds of pies and roots going back to 'Illuminati' influences in 1830's Germany.

Skull And Bones
Skull & Bones buttonHere, in a recent e-mail interview, are Antony Sutton's own reflections and answers to questions from myself and other researchers.
Pre-interview note from Antony Sutton: Remember all my papers on this are in deep storage 1000 miles away and cannot be accessed and I've not even thought about S&B for 15 years. I had no idea that any interest had been aroused out there. I know the book is a steady seller from the royalty reports; but that is all. For the last 10 years I have been in complete seclusion working on future technology...I'm more engineer than historian. The only visitors I've had or meetings have been with three-letter agency people, who arrive on the doorstep unannounced and complain I am hard to find. Big Brother has the ability apparently to find anyone. Nothing mysterious about this, I just dislike publicity and social interaction. . . . You will see from the Dutch TV episode that my work still upsets the "powers that be" so these are merely reasonable precautions.
KM - Can you tell the story of how you learned of Skull & Bones? And how you felt?
The Skull & Bones Building at Yale University
AS - I knew nothing of S&B until I received a letter in the early 80's asking if I would like to look at a genuine membership list. For no real reason I said yes. It was agreed to send the package by Federal Express and I could keep it for 24 hours, it had to be returned to the safe. It was a "black bag" job by a family member disgusted with their activities. For the benefit of any S&B members who may read and doubt the statement; the membership list is in two volumes, black leather bound. Living members and deceased members in separate volumes. Very handsome books. I spent all night in Kinko's, Santa Cruz , copied the entire volumes and returned within the 24 hour period. I have never released any copies or identified the source. I figured each copy could be coded and enable S&B to trace the leak. How did I feel? I felt then (as I do now} that these "prominent" men are really immature juveniles at heart. The horrible reality is that these little boys have been dominant in their influence in world affairs. No wonder we have wars and violence. Skull and Bones is the symbol of terrorist violence, pirates, the SS Deaths Head Division in WW Two, labels on poison bottles and so on. I kept the stack of xerox sheets for quite a while before I looked at them--when I did look--a picture jumped out, THIS was a significant part of the so called establishment. No wonder the world has problems!
KM - What is the percentage of active members?
AS - I haven't checked for 15 years...it used to be about one quarter. With the rise of the Bush dynasty it will increase somewhat, as they climb on the bankwagon. The Demos had their turn with Harriman in the 40's and 50's.
KM - How many active members are there?
AS - Usually about 600 alive at any one time . . . recently more active.
KM- What is your take on the grandfather clock that each member allegedly receives?
AS - They do get a clock I've had that confirmed and you will see it in the photos in ASE (AMERICA'S SECRET ESTABLISHMENT). Might be symbolic, perhaps to state their organization goes on timelessly.
KM - Has Skull and Bones lost its clout?
AS - Well look at the recent fundraiser for George Bush...Republicans are stuffing money into his pockets...I suggest members recently got behind one of their own and decided to push George all out for president--and Democrats can't do a thing because Democrat Bones are not going to allow the Party to use the ultimate weapon--George's membership in a foreign secret society.
George W, Bush (Bonesman)George HW Bush (Bonesman)Prescott S. Bush (Bonesman)
Three generations Bush. Left to right: George Walker Bush (Bonesman); George Herbert Walker Bush (Bonesman); Prescott Sheldon Bush (Bonesman)
KM - What do you know of George ' W.' Bush?
AS - He is a third generation Bonesman. My personal impression is that he doesn't have the drive of his father or the skills of his grandfather....--but I could be very wrong. He can beat anyone hands down--EXCEPT VENTURA. If Bush handlers allow a face to face debate between Bush and Ventura, Ventura will win. Remember Ventura has admitted to his so-called "sins". Bush has a closet full waiting to emerge. People are getting bored with cover ups and spin. 2000 may see the end of the Bones influence or--reality that these Bones people are powerful.
KM - Is the 'name' of the German group known?
AS - Almost certainly Illuminati.
KM - Some people say that there are other 'cells'; what do you think?
AS - There are many other secret societies. I've only looked at S&B. Unfortunately no historian will keep his job if he tries to explore conspiracy...this is taboo for the American Historical Association. Sooner or later outsiders will take a look. I've long thought that S&B fits the legal definition of a conspiracy and needs to be officially investigated. Yes there should be other cells. No secret society worth anything is going to keep its inner actions written down on paper. If the gigantic electronic monitoring apparatus is for national security purposes; then it should be monitoring these people 24 hours a day.
KM - What are your thoughts on Wolf's Head? Scroll & Key? And the other Senior societies at Yale?
Mark Phillips and Cathie O'Brien with dog SunnyAS - Wolfs Head, Scroll and Key seem to be pale imitations of S&B, but they have the same objective of deliberately building discrimination into a society. I listened to Jesse Ventura last night and he made the point that the Founding Fathers intended for CITIZENS to represent the people. I agree, a trucker, a farmer, a teacher--represents the people not a bunch of professional pols or a secret society like S&B. All these societies place their own members ahead of the pack and give preference to their own members--this is discrimination par excellence.
KM - Have you read Cathy O'Brian's book Trance-Formation Of America? What do think of it?
AS - The book does not contain one piece of hard physical evidence.. I think Cathy O'Brien BELIEVES SHE IS TELLING THE TRUTH . . . but remember that Mark Phillips is a skilled neuro-linguistic-programmer. Another point that really concerns me is this...where did this story originate? It originated in Communist Chinese Intelligence and Mark Phillips had a contractual relationship with the ChiComs. This could be an attempt to destabilize the US. No doubt these Washington pols are fully capable of these weird practices, just look at Bohemian Grove but that doesn't mean that the book is an accurate portrayal. If the book is credible I would think the police would have raided Bohemian Grove long ago.
My best guess is that the Chinese picked up whispers of Washington scandals and blew them out of proportion for their own purposes. This is a GUESS...I don't know. One thing that puzzled me, with all these sexual shenanigans how do Washington politicians find time to do anything else? According to the book this is a full time occupation for Senator Byrd and others.
KM - What did your study of elites, economics, secrecy and technology do for your career?
AS-Depends what you mean by "career"? By conventional standards I am an abject failure. I've been thrown out of two major Universities (UCLA and Stanford), denied tenure at Cal State Los Angeles. Every time I write something, it appears to offend someone in the Establishment and they throw me to the wolves. On the other hand I've written 26 books, published a couple of newsletters and so on...even more important I've never compromised on the truth And I don't quit. In material terms...hopeless failure. In terms of discovery...I think I've been successful. Judge a man by his enemies. William Buckley called me a "jerk". Glenn Campbell, former Director of the Hoover Institution, Stanford called me "a problem".
KM - Do you believe that there has been suppression of technology? Has it been major or minor?
AS - Yes there has been suppression but its going to be impossible to suppress the new emerging paradigm.
KM - The Federal Reserve, the House of Morgan, House of Rothschild and Skull and Bones are they related?
AS - Best source for this is a book by me THE FEDERAL RESERVE CONSPIRACY, 1995 CPA, PO Box 596, Boring OR 97007.
KM- On Skull and Bone's influencing John Dewey and Horace Mann; are there good source materials to follow that story?
AS - Depends what you want to find. You could explore the 10(?) volume works of Dewey... outrageous Hegelianism, the state is supreme, the individual merely a pawn to be trained. This is the basis of our 'educational system"...or you could go and explore the members of S&B who brought the system to the US. This trained "sausage mind" outlook has thoroughly permeated our universities--that's why we have the peer review system...we are all supposed to think alike and find the same answers. This political correctness garbage is another step to total thought control.
AH - Did any of Hitler's economic policies threaten the interests of the international bankers, and if so did that play a role in his downfall?
AS - Hitler's economic policies were OK'd by the bankers right through the war...ITT, Chase, Texaco and others were operating in Nazi-held France as late as 1945. In fact Chase in Paris was trying to get Nazi accounts as late as 1944. When we got to Germany in May 1945, I remember seeing a (bombed-out) Woolworth store in Hamburg and thinking, "What's Woolworth doing in Nazi Germany?" While we were bombed and shelled it was "business as usual" for Big Business. Try the Alien Custodian Papers. See my BEST ENEMY MONEY CAN BUY for more information. Union Banking is very important. I made a documentary for Dutch National TV some years ago. It got all the way through the production process to the Dutch TV Guide...at the last minute it was pulled and another film substituted. This documentary has proof of Bush financing Hitler-- documents. Maybe my Dutch friends will still get it viewed, but the apparatus reaches into Holland.
KM - What is the story that was going to be told on Dutch TV? And what is the story of it's censorship?
AS - Couple of years back, a Dutch TV production company from Amsterdam--under contract to Dutch National TV--came to US to make documentary on S&B. They went to the Bones Temple and other places and interviewed people on East Coast. On West Coast, they interviewed myself and one other person. I saw extracts from the original and it is a good professional job. They had documents linking Bush family and other S&B members to financing Hitler through Union Banking of New York and its Dutch correspondent bank. More than I have in WALL STREET AND THE RISE OF HITLER. The first version was later upgraded into a two part documentary and scheduled for showing this last March. It was pulled at last minute and has never been shown.
AH - Who has been financing Milosevic, and what role has the international banking community played in the Balkans?
AS - I haven't looked at this one. Of course the notorious Black Hand society is located in the Balkans. See WW One.
DG - What is the importance of your work on Skull and Bones?
AS - The potential is extraordinary. IF we find that secret societies are indeed significant the entire history of the last two centuries will have to be re-written. At this point in 1999, the potential has not been explored by others and I've moved back to my original interest--technology. Apparently people see some merit in the work. It is never advertised. It is an underground word of mouth distribution but has sold steadily from 1986 to date. Every month I get a royalty check, so I know it is selling. But my original enthusiastic statement has not been fulfilled.
KM - What do you see for the future?
AS - Chaos, confusion and ultimately a battle between the individual and the State. The individual is the stronger; and will win. The state is a fiction sanctified by Hegel and his followers to CONTROL the individual. Sooner or later people will wake up. First we have to dump the trap of right and left, this is a Hegelian trap to divide and control. The battle is not between right and left; it is between us and them. The message is getting through. ASE has sold for 15 years, small but steady. No advertising. Its an underground work. But the breadth of interest is amazing. From Black Africa, to Russia (12,000 copies), right, left...it cuts across all ethnic, political, social lines...The spirit of God is within us as individuals. Skull & Bones represents death. It has no life spirit and pretends that the State "is the march of God on earth". The thinking of immature juveniles, deadly and destructive and has almost totally infected Washington. What to do? Find yourself and then go to work.....tell your friends and put out the message. The answer is within you. _____ Antony Sutton, is the author of 26 books, many of which can be purchased on-line at Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Liberty House Press at 1-800-343-6180 has copies of America's Secret Establishment and Best Enemy Money Can Buy for sale. New York Editors . . . In talking to a magazine in New York that is working on a feature story on George ' W ' Bush and was thinking of doing a piece on S&B. I asked how about a sidebar on Antony Sutton? After getting responses peppered with phrases such as; "Someone is claiming he's a John Bircher" and; Here is what one editor (who shall remain nameless) had to say about Sutton:
"Liberty House was/is a right wing publishing company located in Billings, Montana. Anthony Sutton was a research fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution. Among many other claims, Sutton's book accuses Skull and Bones of funding and encouraging "the Maxist/Leftist '60s revolution"....and diverting attention by drawing students into disarmament and/or environmental groups and issues. Although there seems to be some real info in his book, it reads like a classic text of right-wing propaganda, filled with hyperbole and unsourced allegations" Antony Sutton's response:
What's wrong with these editors? I was thrown out of the Hoover Institution by the CIA types....I am definitely persona non-grata. Director Glenn Campbell actually threatened me: "you will not survive."
Some right winger!! I've never been a member of the Birch Society or any society come to that. I'd like to have that Editor say that to my face. They're sick! Get his comments on the above...and have him come up with some proof. What's the legal definition of slander...it has to be untrue and malicious. Do they have any money? When it comes right down to it the NY people didn't even read my book...else they would know that I see the right-left approach as a Hegelian trap...as for lack of evidence Ill leave that to the readers. On second thought they probably never heard of Hegel. When Lenin referred to 'useful idiots" he must have had these people in mind.
The history of these drugs, how they come to be, who distributed them, what they were used for, and how the suddenly got illegal. Very intersting documentary sharing some light over the pharmaceutical industry.
And now they throw us in jail for smoking a joint? Come one.. People shold be free to do to themselves whatever they want is my opinion

Friday, April 13th, Marc Davenport, the noted author of Visitors From Time, introduced me to a well-known Illinois UFO researcher named Forest Crawford. On Sunday, the 15th, Mr. Crawford was going to deliver what sounded like a very interesting presentation on anti-gravity. He agreed to speak with us directly on his thought-provoking research. Here’s that conversation:
Forest Crawford: Two years ago, I gave a talk on kind of the latest things going on in anti-gravity and a new theory about gravity called super-luminal radiation. It literally says that gravity is a pushing force, not a pulling force, so instead of us being pulled down to the planet we’re actually being pushed down to the planet by another form of light which has properties that make it very hard to detect. I mean, that’s kind of it in a nutshell.
Editor: Is that kind of like the dark energy?
Forest Crawford: Yes. That’s another word for it. The dark matter and dark energy. It’s that unaccounted for stuff. If you put negative numbers into Maxwell’s equations, which define electromagnetic radiation, you get the definition of another kind of radiation which is called super-luminal radiation.
So I gave that talk two years ago, and what I wanted to do at the end of the talk was actually demonstrate one of what they call lifters. They are small devices that Jean Naudin, a French scientist, had built these little models literally out of balsa wood, aluminum foil and some wire, a power supply, and you can demonstrate and make these things fly, and they fly really well. You have to tie them down or else they take off and run to the end of your wire and flip over.
So we got one that works. Two years ago, I didn’t have time to finish building the thing before my talk because I had put off and procrastinated, so we finally built the damn thing and we got it here, a couple of them actually, so we’re going to test fly them and then just do maybe 20 minutes or half an hour on—well, what it actually demonstrates is called the Biefeld-Brown Effect, and it’s named after T. Townsend Brown and this (Paul) Biefeld. They were two electrical engineers/physicists, scientists that developed this phenomena and realized this phenomena in their experiments, and what it has to do with, in a nutshell, is that a capacitor stores energy. And what they found out is that if you have something called an asymmetrical capacitor, which means that one electrode is smaller than the other, and when the capacitor discharges there is a pull toward the positive pole. Literally there is a motion toward the positive pole of the capacitor and that violates Newton’s Third Law of Motion, which is that for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. This is an action in one direction only. No opposite equal reaction.
So it’s such a profound effect that T. Townsend Brown actually built disc-shaped objects about this big around [about three or four feet, editor], looked like little flying saucers, tethered them to a pole, had all of the military folks come out, because he was in the military and then he did his research for the military also. He called the Generals out and test flew these things. I mean, they flew like gang-busters around this pole, demonstrating this effect.
He’d tie them so that they wouldn’t just fly off and then they’d spin around, at great speeds, demonstrating this effect. This was like in the ‘50s. So the effect was named after him. It was one of those, ‘We’ve got this propulsive force and it seems to warrant further development.’
So this lifter is a very simple and inexpensive way to build a model and to demonstrate that effect, which may be one of the phenomena at the heart of energy or anti-gravity propulsion systems. It might be part of this equation about how to make it work, how to actually get thrust.
So we’re going to kind of go over the Biefeld-Brown Effect a little bit and I’m going to show them basically where you can get the information, how easy these things are to build, and how inexpensive they can be, and then my friend Gary is going to talk about some of the patents and stuff that are out there of ion propulsion systems. There’s also some controversy around (the fact that) some people believe that the whole propulsion is created by ionic wind, so you’ve got this high-voltage circuit that is creating this flow of ions and that’s what’s actually lifting the craft. But if you do real calculations on the energy that you’re putting into the mass of the craft, the ion wind can’t account for the actual lift. It falls short and there’s not enough force to lift this thing. There is ionic wind, but it’s just not what’s making it fly.
So there’s some controversy over this. Is Biefeld-Brown Effect really just an ion drive? All measurements are no, but nobody knows what it really is. One of the theories is that it may actually partially shield gravity enough to lift a very light model craft. So like I say it’s a way to show that people can reproduce this and you can go out and experiment with this and you don’t need ten million dollars of government money to do it, so that’s what we’re going to be doing on Sunday.
Editor’s Note: Well, since my wife and I went to Blue Spring that Sunday (read about that in my Reality Checking column), I missed Forest’s talk and demonstration, but Lou Farish caught the last 10 minutes or so of the talk, which included the “demonstration.” However, his only comment was that he did not possess “enough technical knowledge to make an intelligent comment.” Nonetheless, he did refer me to a website (www.ttbrown.com), which contains a “book” on Brown, his life and controversial work that a researcher named Paul Schatzkin is writing on the Internet one chapter at a time (57 chapters thus far). Lou hopes to have him as a speaker at his conference next year.
Alabama Flying Triangles
Madison—Around 8 PM, I was driving home heading east on Highway 72 on February 28, 2007, when I noticed two bright lights three hundred feet above a field that was located next to a Grocery Store. They were very close and seemed to be motionless. I decided to pull into the store parking lot near the field so I could observe. I was speaking on the phone to my boyfriend. I could see two big lights and a multitude of lights arranged in a triangular shape. I rolled down my window and the only sound was that from the highway behind me. The first craft began to move south at a maximum speed of 10 mph. Then a moment later the second craft followed.
The first craft had a row of four white lights, then a row of three, the middle light on this row was red. Then a row of two lights and one light to complete a triangle. The red light in the center of the craft was blinking, but all other white lights remained solid and consistent. The second craft was exactly the same as the first, however it lacked the red light, only white lights in the shape of a triangle. As the crafts moved over head you could make out a faint shape around the triangle, the only way you could even notice was that it would block out stars as it moved even though the triangle part wasn’t over the star yet. Both craft continued at this slow pace until I could not see them from the front anymore and then they became invisible in the night sky. I live close to Red Stone Arsenal so I can’t say that it wasn’t a military plane, but it sure wasn’t a plane as we know it today.
Trussville—I was driving to my friend’s house on Chalkville Road at night on March 15, 2007. I saw a remarkably lit triangular shaped craft right in front of me that did not look like any conventional airplane. This craft had a large red, circular light in the middle of it with one white light on its nose, and three white lights on its rear. I also think there was one white light on the other two sides. There were no blinking lights, the lights on it all stayed constant. The craft was on its side when I first saw it, then it flattened out as it flew off into the distance, heading west. My car has a digital compass in the top center console, so I know the direction is correct. Also, I had my driver’s side window cracked and I didn’t hear any engine noise. I wish I had taken a picture with my camera phone because it was close enough to make a good picture. The large red light in the middle of it had me perplexed and stunned. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Chilean Pilots Have UFO Encounters
VIÑA DEL MAR -- The Chilean government has disclosed a series of sightings and encounters between military pilots and unidentified flying objects (UFO). Captain Rodrigo Bravo, with authorization of the Army Command, took part in an international discussion of the subject, in which he disclosed "spectacular" experiences in various parts of Chile. Bravo presented videos and photographs during the meeting while discussing the encounters that pilots of his branch had undergone in the past 10 years.
Chilean Mirage Fighter
Chile, with 15.5 million inhabitants, ranks fifth in the world when it comes to the highest number of UFO sightings, after the United States, Peru , Brazil and Russia . Over 600 sightings have been recorded in Chile over the past 60 years. These include "CE3K" -type contacts with “extraterrestrials.” The Army officer recalled that on April 2, 1997, in the city of Arica 's Chacalluyta Airport , the pilot of a T-212 aircraft witnessed an elongated orange object in the sky for nine minutes.
Another incident of similar characteristics took place in early 2000 in the southern region of Los Lagos, while three military helicopters flew by in broad daylight. "The crew members witnessed an object on the ground that swiftly rose to the same altitude as the aircraft, positioning itself in front of them, almost on a collision course." The UFO vanished at high speed after engaging in zig-zagging movements.
GRANEROS -- On March 18, 2000, 70 kilometers south of Santiago, the crew of a military aircraft claimed having seen an elongated, lead-colored object that took off at high speed after having flown beside them. "All of these cases are certified by the Comité de Estudios de Fenómenos Aéreos Anómalos (CEFFA), the best suited in Chile for this type of research," added the military man.
Rodrigo Fuenzalida, director of the Agrupación de Investigaciones Ovniológicas de Chile (AION), told EFE that having the Army's cooperation sets the example for mature behavior on the part of "this institution, which consented to open its files and have them subjected to serious scrutiny." Fuenzalida maintains that all that is needed now is for the Government to assume a similar posture and support the opening of these files, which has occurred in such countries as Brazil. UFO sightings "are no longer a novelty" and experts claim that 60 million people worldwide have witnessed this phenomenon, although only ten percent of these experiences are made known, due to the fear of being ridiculed.

China May Have An Underground UFO Base?
LADAKH -- John Winston writes, "Many stories have surfaced that both China and India know about an underground UFO base near Kongka La a low ridge pass in the Himalayas on the disputed India-China border. The Chinese hold the northeastern part which is known as Aksai Chin and Indian the southwest which is known as Ladakh. The two countries fought a major war in 1962, over the area that is one of the least accessed area in the world. By agreement the two countries do not patrol that part of the border. Local people claim UFOs are seen coming out of the ground, and this is known by both governments.

According to many tourists, the Indian and Chinese military maintain a line of control to prevent people going to the UFO base. Recently Hindu pilgrims on their way to Mount Kailash saw strange lights in the sky and the local guides while in the Chinese territory told them that this was nothing new and is a normal phenomenon from the Kongka Pass area. Strange lighted triangular silent craft come out of mountains and fly almost vertically up. Some of the adventurous pilgrims wanted to look into the site but were turned away at both Indian and Chinese Guard posts despite their permit to travel between the two countries.
The Indian border patrol personnel said, "They had orders not to allow any one near the area of interest and it is true that strange objects come out from under the ground with amplified and modulated lights. The locals start laughing in that area when they are asked about these UFO sightings. According to the locals, the extra-terrestrial presence is well known and is deep into the ground where the Euresian plate and the Indian plate have created convergent plate boundaries. The double thick earth crust allows the creation of underground bases deep into the tectonic plates. Convergent plate boundaries are formed where one plate dives under another. Kongka La has beautiful rocks and granites but neither Chinese nor Indian authorities ever excavate, dig or mine holes in this area. The area is pristine and untouched. Thanks to the http://www.indiadaily.com
The Chinese after winning Aksai Chin from India in 1962, built a strategic military highway, but are not using it and are using an alternate highway. Recently in the local school, young children of the area entered into a drawing contest. More than half of the drawings had to do with strange objects in the sky and some coming out of the mountains. Many of them even know when and what to look for.
Many UFO researchers believe that there are hidden UFO bases under the ocean and deep under the ground. Kongka La is experiencing some strange phenomenon and suspicious objects coming out of the inaccessible huge mountains. Why is this region continuously reporting UFO sightings from various kinds of people? Thanks to Indiadaily.com
China Alien Abduction
The best-known alien abduction story in China is the case of Meng Zhao Guo, a young tree farmer, from Wuchang, in Heilongjiang province. In June 1994 Zhao Guo and two other farm workers, working at Red Flag logging camp saw something unusual on nearby Mount Pheonix . Meng was hit by a beam of light, and experienced an abduction and a sexual encounter with a female alien.
Meng Zhaoguo, a rural worker explains he was 29 when he broke his marital vows for the first and only time -- with an extraterrestrial of unusually robust build.
"She was 10 feet [3.03 metres] tall and had six fingers, but otherwise she looked completely like a human,'' he says. "I told my wife all about it afterwards. She wasn't too angry.'' During September 2003 Zhang Jingping, a Beijing-based UFO researcher, had psychologists and police technicians subject Zhao Guo to hypnosis and a lie detector test in Beijing. Zhang indicated the test results proved the abductee was telling the truth.
He also indicated that doctors had indicated that Zhao Guo’s scars "could not possibly have been caused by common injuries or surgery." Thanks to John Winston. firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.ancientx.com

Chile: Ghostly Image Captured on Cellphone
SOURCE: IIEE and Crónica Newspaper
CHILE: CELLPHONE PICKS UP GHOSTLY IMAGE
by Tania Merino
Technicians believe the phenomenon is "bizarre"
The time was 11:02 pm on February 4, 2007 when after a family get-together in a house at Villa Cap, a 25 year-old man tried to take a photo of his mother with his cellphone camera. All of the guests were gone and only the young man and his parents were in the house. It was for this reason that uncertainty gripped them all when they saw the images that the cellphone had captured.
Only in one of the snapshots, taken in a quick sequence of four photographs, did the woman appear. The rest of them picked up sections of the face of a man who looks straight into the lens and who was never in the room.
"My mom got nervous, I put the cellphone away, we checked the house, but there was no one there but us," said the young man, who preferred anonymity rather than face public questioning of his sanity. He said that "a heavy atmosphere" weighed over the house at the time, that it was "saturated", and that strange things had already occurred them, such as objects moving without any reason whatsoever.
Upon seeing what had happened, he fired another volley of three photos and the same thing occured. The man's face reappeared.
He nervously showed us the time and date of the images captured by the cellphone. All of them correspond to the hour and minute he indicated and each sequence falls within the same minute: 23.02, 23.03, 23.05 and 23.06 minutes. the photos remain inside the cellphone until their origin can be ascertained.
The next day, he informed his brother of the event and they uploaded the images to a computer through a USB cable. They assembled the parts of the jigsaw puzzle and were surprised to clearly see the features of a man aged between thirty and forty, wearing a white suit and shirt. "This is a person that doesn't exist in the household; no one knows him. No one in my family wears three piece suits, to begin with."
"I even asked the old owner of my mother's house and she had never seen him either," he added.
Furthermore, he added that "the other day a neighbor who drives a taxi cab was getting home at 3 a.m. when he saw an image appear in the backyard of our house, a man wearing a three-piece suit and smoking. The driver turned oun the headlights, but by the time he did so, there was no one there." Our interviewee showed the cellphone images to the neighbor and the driver recognized him - not by the face, but by the shape and the suit.
"Now I want to know who this person is, what he wants and what he needs," he concluded fearfully.
We consulted with an expert from a cellular telephony company and explained the situation. "Nowadays, cameras have a VGA system with pixels, and capture the image that is before them. These can only be manipulated and rearranged by editing, but there is no way that they can invent an image or create that of a person that isn't standing in front of the camera," explained Roman Montero. He admitted that it is "bizarre, because I can't find a logical explanation for it. It is impossible that it should occur. A camera cannot photograph something that it can't see," he added. He suggested taking the photos to a lab and to have them analyzed. He understood the urge to associate the images with a ghost. In earlier times, the exposure of a negative could justify such a thing, but it is not possible with a digital photograph.
