"Truth Embargo" on UFOs--a Game Changer

Event: 29 April - 3 May 2013
Updated: 10 May 2013
Citizen Hearing On Disclosure
April 29 to May 3, 2013
National Press Club, Washington, DC

"If the Congress won't do its job, 
the people will."

On Sunday, 28 April, I received notification of the  Citizen Hearing On Disclosure that could be seen world-wide in live streaming video April 29 To May 3, 2013 – Washington, DC. 

The conference far exceeded my expectations. It contained information from 40 credible witnesses many of whom (especially scientists, engineers and ex-spooks) spoke in terms that resonated in my deepest levels. This event was nothing less than revolutionary.

Nevertheless, there was one credible living witness noticeably missing, who could have given unimpeachable personal testimony on the experiences of George Adamski. I will be exploring this discrepancy as this thread evolves.

Nuclear Weapons Facilities and Extraterrestrial Incursions at the National Press Club The Citizen Hearing: Days One and Two.  Edited Press Release
Washington, DC -  The second day of the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure has come to a close with extraordinary testimony taken by six former members of Congress regarding events and evidence pointing to an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.
On day one, Monday, some of the top researchers in the field testified to Senator Mike Gravel, Congressmen Roscoe Bartlett, Merrill Cook and Congresswomen Lynn Wolsey, Carolyn Kilpartick, Darlene Hooley.   One panel of witnesses, which included Stephen Bassett, Grant Cameron, Linda Moulton Howe and Dr. Steven M. Greer, addressed the history of the Rockefeller Initiative - a three year effort by Laurence Rockefeller, a friend of the Clintons - to convince President Clinton to release to the public all documents in government files relating to unidentified flying objects and grant amnesty to members of the military services and government agencies who come forward with relevant information.
Mr. Bassett testified that those who were aware of and/or directly involved in this effort included President Clinton, Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, Leon Panetta, Albert Gore and Bill Richardson.  In a later interview Bassett added, "President Clinton remains a major figure in the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton sought the presidency and was appointed Secretary of State by President Obama, John Podesta went on in 2002 and 2003 to call for the release of all government held "UFO" files and was appointed co-chair of President Elect Obama's transition team, Leon Panetta was appointed Secretary of Defense and Director of the CIA by President Obama, Bill Richardson stated in 2004, "the mystery surrounding this crash (Roswell 1947) has never been adequately explained -- not by independent investigators, and not by the U.S. government."  Richardson then sought the presidency and was selected by Obama to be Secretary of Commerce (he withdrew his nomination.)"
Bassett also stated,"None of these powerful political figures have ever been asked a single question by the press regarding the Rockefeller Initiative." 

On day two, Tuesday, Air Force personnel testified regarding what some call "England's Roswell."  Sgts. John Burroughs and Jim Penniston were directly involved in the 1980 events near RAF Bentwaters in the UK when an incursion over several nights occurred at this nuclear installation by a craft of unknown origin.  This case is considered one of the most important in the modern era.   
Perhaps the most powerful testimonies of the day came from retired United State Air Force personnel, Capts. Robert Salas, Bruce Fenstermacher, David Schindele and Sgt. David Scott who gave compelling first hand accounts of the shutting down of ballistic missiles by unknown craft hovering over nuclear launch sites in the United States, one of which was the Minot AFB in North Dakota, in December 1967. Another was at Travis AFB in 2010. Similar, earlier events are the Echo and Oscar Flight shut downs in early 1996. Also, craft were observed hovering above the Hanford AEC plant in Washington state on 8 August 1950. Several members of the Citizen Hearing Committee called for formal Congressional hearings into these incidents.
[Note: in a separate report referred to me by the daughter of T. Townsend Brown, a Soviet documentary called "Men in Black", revealed by Russian President Medvedev in a news conference in late 2012, this same kind of phenomenon took place in the USSR in the late 1950s (?) when several craft of unknown origin were seen hovering over the 50th RVSN Division in the Carpathian District and activated the system of nuclear missiles. None of the operators could countermand this activation. All equipment was totally blocked. Only when the UFOs left could the facility operators regain control of their system. Provocation from USA was not even considered.]

On Day three, Wednesday: A.M.
Allege conspiracy to deny benefits for injuries sustained in the line of duty. By Patrick Frascogna  
WASHINGTON, D.C., April 30, 2013 – Two career United States Air Force veterans announced their intention to file a federal lawsuit against the Veterans Administration in an effort to obtain medical benefits to remedy injuries sustained in the line of duty at a press conference at the National Press Club on Tuesday. 
Retired Tech Sergeants John Burroughs and James Penniston claim the government is denying them proper treatment for injuries sustained in the line of duty as base security at the U.S. airbase at RAF Bentwaters in December of 1980. Penniston and Burroughs were the first on-scene responders to a potential base incursion by an object of unknown origin into one of the most sensitive United States Air Force installations at the height of the cold war. As such, the pair were momentarily on the front lines of the USAF defense establishment in Europe...
"We don't intend to be the last two casualties of the Cold War", Burroughs said, "left hung out to dry by our chain of command and obsolete notions of national security. There is no reason at this late date to deny us the information that may extend our lives, the bulk of which we spent in service to our country."
Wednesday: P.M.  Roswell incident...

On day four, Thursday:
Witnesses from South America such as Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Bolivia gave testimony in the morning. Other countries such as China, Australia, France and Italy gave testimony in the afternoon of UFO sightings and interaction with space people, especially People's Republic of China who claimed to be descendants of space people.

On day five, Friday:

Morning sessions:
By far the most important and credible speaker-witnesses so far for me are investigative reporters Linda Moulton Howe and Richard P. Dolan. Close seconds are physicist Robert Wood, Ph.D. and physician Steven Greer, M.D..

Afternoon sessions: Then, after a moving farewell statement by Rep. Carolyn Kirkpatrick, even more important for me was the hurried report (before being cut off by panel chairman Rep. Merrill Cook--who seemed at times to be an idiot!) by physicist Thomas Valone, Ph.D., of the Integrity Research Institute referring to Russian follow-up work and then to a particular 'crop circle' formation sometimes called the "Chilbolton Photograms" in August of 2001. This formation is something that I have for years felt was super significant. The exciting thing for me was Dr. Valone's technical interpretation of the Chilbolton Reply that I couldn't record quickly enough. At least we now have a source to check it out further!

In the second and last session Stephen Bassett spoke of the need for a single official statement from world governments: "We are not alone!" He also spoke of the need for new language, citing terms such as "UFO" and "cover up"as examples of stereotypes needing revision. Instead of "UFO" consider "extraterrestrial phenomena" (ETP?). Instead of "cover up" consider "truth embargo", etc. And with governmental acknowledgement, we could then use the term "exopolitics", etc.

Adjourning the Conference (via streaming video)

There is to be a press release communique given and signed by the panel of former Congressional members on Monday, May 6, 2013.

Monday, 6 May 2013: excerpt from The Oakland Tribune:
"The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race will attempt to accomplish what the Congress has failed to do for 45 years -- seek out the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time," according to the hearing's website. 
Besides Woolsey, also plumbing the final frontier's mysteries this week are former U.S. Sen. Mike Gravel, D-Alaska, and former Reps. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md.; Merrill Cook, R-Utah; Darlene Hooley, D-Ore.; and Carolyn Kilpatrick, D-Mich. 
The multiday hearing, which started Monday and ends Friday, promises testimony from about 40 researchers and military/agency witnesses and is being live-streamed in English and Spanish... 
The event was organized by the Paradigm Research Group -- a UFO conspiracy-theory group in Bethesda, Md., founded by activist Stephen Bassett, which invited the former lawmakers to use their House-honed skills in interviewing witnesses. 
The White House in November 2011 answered a pair of petitions seeking disclosure of information on extraterrestrial life -- including a petition launched by Bassett -- by stating "the U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye."
On Wednesday, 9 May 13, the following release was issued:

Citizen Hearing on Disclosure Committee Seeks UN World Conference on Possible Extraterrestrial Presence
Washington, DC РOn May 3, 2013 members of the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure Committee and Hearing witnesses representing ten UN member nations met at the National Press Club to draft a statement seeking United Nations review of evidence of a possible extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. The result is the following communiqu̩:
Citizen Hearing on Disclosure Washington Communique May 3, 2013 
From April 29, 2013 to May 3, 2013 researchers, activists, political leaders, and former members of military services and government agencies representing ten countries gave testimony in Washington, DC to six former members of the United States Congress. After hearing this testimony these members issue the following statement:
Whereas: given the unfolding scientific understanding of the number of potentially life supporting planets within Earth's home galaxy, it would be the height of arrogance to assert that humans are the only sentient beings within that galaxy;
Whereas: given that credible witnesses have brought forth overwhelming scientific evidence documenting the current presence of unidentified and unexplained aerial craft that many believe to reflect an extraterrestrial intelligence; 
And Whereas: given the enormous global implications if these craft are, indeed, of extraterrestrial origin, such an issue is a matter for the General Assembly of the United Nations;
Therefore, we the undersigned request the Citizen Hearing Foundation use its offices to organize interested parties and raise the funds necessary to pursue a global campaign to convince one or more nations to propose a resolution within the General Assembly calling for United Nations sponsorship of a world conference addressing the possible evidence for an extraterrestrial presence engaging this planet.
We the undersigned pledge our support for this effort.
Congresswoman Carolyn Kilpatrick;Senator Mike Gravel; Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey; Congressman Merrill Cook; Congresswoman Darlene Hooley [Unable to sign due to postemployment restrictions on Congressional Members and officers.]; Congressman Roscoe Bartlett [Unable to sign due to post-employment restrictions on Congressional Members and officers.]
The Citizen Hearing Foundation is a pending 501(c)3 non-profit, which will launch its website later this month and immediately begin raising funds to pursue nation sponsors for a resolution to the UN General Assembly.
On 9 May 2013 the British on-line newspaper Telegraph.com published a report titled "Money and Britons join US quest for truth about UFOs".

Dreaming of Eugene England

Posted: Monday, 22 April 2013
Updated: 27 Apr 13

Eugene England
 Today (Monday, 22 Apr) I received photos of the late Eugene England [founder of Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought] from friend Tom Rogers, who dreamed of Gene on Tom's 80th birthday on April 12. It seemed uncanny that Tom would dream of Gene less than three weeks after I, myself, had last dreamed of Gene! (Gene left mortality over a decade ago and my previous dream of him was the night before his death--just a month before the 9-11 attack on the Twin Towers.)

Comparing notes, Tom and I wondered what Gene's appearance in our respective dreams portended--at least I did. What does Gene mean to each of us now as old men these days? How does Gene, as a figure in our respective dreams, behave in our dreams and how does he relate to us differently? And, what are the commonalities?

To begin these reflections, all three of us began mortality in 1933, Tom being the oldest, I the youngest with Gene (now deceased) in the middle, born three months after Tom and three months before me. Gene and Tom were born in Salt Lake City, were classmates at the East High class of 1951, and were on the high school's debate team.

I first met Gene in spring 1961 while in graduate school at the University of Utah. He had just resigned his commission as an officer in the US Air Force to return to academia. We met as fellow LDS student representatives from our respective campus wards at an LDS University stake speech festival to address the theme: How can we build the moral strength of our nation? After that festival, Gene and I, together with three other young men participants, formed a dialogue group to discuss how to implement our collective ideas. That was likely the genesis of the idea for Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, which Gene then brought into existence four years later at Stanford University with the help of four other LDS graduate students, only one of which was female.

I first met Tom in 1979 at BYU (while living with Gene and his family as their house guest) to discuss a peace initiative between the USA and the USSR during the height of the Cold War. Tom was then a professor of Russian, whereas I was a consultant to the Eyring Research Institute in Provo working on a classified military defense proposal, having prior experience in the US-USSR arena both as a Russian interpreter in the military before attending university and afterwards as a businessman dealing with the Soviet Ministry of Foreign Trade.

Tom Rogers on 80th birthday
So, the question remains: what is "Eugene England" doing as a character in Tom's and my dreams these days when we both are now old men? The easy first answer is dialogue. Or, as Gene might say: "proving contraries". And, as Tom would say: "communion". And of course there is that famous scripture in Joel 2:28 about the last days: And their old men shall dream dreams....

In my dream on March 26, 2013, I am with Gene in a cafe and about to get rid of an old copy of Dialogue because its cover is loose and damaged. Gene asks if I've actually read that issue because it contains an article of his that he has spent a lot of time writing.

In Tom's dream on April 12, 2013--only a couple of weeks later--Gene comes into the scene while Tom is lying on the carpeted level (bleacher-like) of a crowded classroom in the Humanities facility at BYU and is telling the class about an obscure Mormon writer in the early days of the Mormon Church. Gene gets down with Tom at his level to tell Tom about another obscure Mormon writer that he (Gene) has taken an interest in.

In both these dreams the themes of writing and dialogue are obvious. What else is obvious is that Gene relates to us both where we are. In my case he stops me before I destroy something important that he has invested time in writing. (I have yet to check my hard copy Dialogue issues to find out what he might be talking about.) In Tom's case Gene is willing and able to get "down" (prone) to Tom's level and talk to him in terms of Tom's interest. Gene is clearly a wisely engaged figure in both our dreams. It's not clear if this dream character is a self-aspect of each of us or whether it is the visiting spirit of our old friend from beyond.

Dream worker from the past

Posted: Friday, April 19, 2013
Updated: Saturday, April 20...   

Merchant Seaman Karl in 2005

On April 1, 2013, Karl B surprised me with this message:
Hello, this is a voice from the past, going back to E.C.P. days [1976-77] in El Segundo. We worked together on the Brayton Cycle Turbine project. This is your assistant, Karl B... It has been a very long time. I was thinking of you and how you enlightened me on using dreams to solve technical problems. I have never forgotten that, or you. Thank you so much. 
I see that you are in New Mexico. I am now in Northern California. Retired from merchant shipping. The WORLD is indeed a wondrous place, as shipping provided me with the experience and means to explore the people and places I'd only imagined. 
Before becoming a merchant seaman, I continued on shore with technical aerospace positions including work as a mechanical tech. for TRW in San Clemente on the Alpha 1 SDI Laser project. That was a fascinating job. 
I know you must be busy so I'll end here. Just wanted to touch base with an old and very unique friend. I hope you can find time to write. I'd like to hear from you. 
Very respectfully Karl
After several subsequent email exchanges, I asked Karl to relate his experience with dreams as applied to work-related subjects. His note (below) brought to mind a time in 1975 when I consulted for Semco, a small company in North Hollywood, which made zirconium-cladded thermocouples for the nuclear industry. Semco was having difficulty solving a contamination problem which had shut down production. It took many weeks to isolate and identify the contaminant by a systematic process of elimination to finally and surprisingly arrive at the last possible and least suspected cause: the certified cleaning agent itself. Something that the company had been using successfully for years.  

I had begun the search by carefully interviewing all company employees who had anything to with production. But, shortly after solving this problem over about six painstaking weeks, I happened upon a clue in my dream journal, which I'd had only a day or so after my initial interviewing process. There it was in my notes: "contaminated alcohol"!! Had I considered that as a clue at the very beginning, we could have saved the company much time and expense! 

It was a lesson learned, which I was to apply at ECP (Engineered Ceramic Products, Inc.) a few months later in conversations with willing workers like Karl! I asked him to be specific in his recollection of our conversations, which he has graciously done.

On Apr 19, 2013, Karl responded:
 I worked for ECP with Akbar Ali on the Ash/Glass ceramic Power-Pole project beginning in, I believe, 1976 and also your Brayton Cycle Waste Heat Recovery Project into 1977. We were having problems with the Garret Air Research Turbines exploding when introducing highly heated air from the glass furnace waste gates in Vernon Ca. You gave me guidance in how to concentrate my thoughts (work related) on the problems as I entered sleep,  with a notebook and pencil next to the bed, and to write down any related dream input I might have. I did,...and it WORKED 100%! It turned out to be a problem internally with the metals used in the turbine, housing and blades being dissimilar with different heat expansion rates resulting in direct contact between the two, resulting in turbine failure/explosion. Remember we used to pile sand bags around the test equipment for protection.... scary! I believe you presented this to Garret engineers who were able to build us workable units for our test applications. I think this was about the time I was involved in the unfortunate incident where I was robbed and consequently stabbed quite severely (August '77) which eventually ended my career at ECP. Let me also say that beyond the work-related dream problem solving techniques you taught me, I was able to solve other non work-related problems to quite a remarkable degree. I have never forgotten that, and have remained in awe of man's mental ability, if applied correctly. Thank you Eugene.  I've held you and the knowledge you enlightened me with in a very high and respected place ever since. I am VERY glad that I was able to look you up online after all these years.

Close Call!

Posted: Thursday morning, 11 April 2013
Updated: Friday, 19 Apr 13

On Sunday evening, April 7, while on a long distance telephone call to an on-line friend in the east, who happens to be a neurologist, I began to talk funny. That is, I was increasingly unable to pronounce certain words beginning with 's', 'g', 'j', 'th', etc. Nor could I roll my 'r's. My tongue felt thick--like I was drunk. Dr. P realized something was happening--a 'TIA', he called it--and urged me to interrupt our conversation and get to the ER as fast as possible. Birgitta drove me to the hospital, which is less than a mile from our house and they kept me overnight and into the next day performing all kinds of tests. These included blood work, CT Scan, X-ray, MRI, ultrasound and a quick change in medication to thin the blood. It seems I may have averted a major stroke!

Thursday evening, April 11
But then after writing the above, I visited my primary care physician (PCP) to follow up and discuss the medications the ER people recommended and began slurring again! He interrupted our session and sent me to ER again. But this time the Los Alamos ER sent me to a larger hospital 100 miles away, which had an available neurologist, since none were available in Los Alamos or Santa Fe. All the Los Alamos tests were repeated and others added. I had to wait in the hospital a couple of days for the neurologist's evaluation and then came home yesterday afternoon (Saturday, 13 Apr) ...  No damage was found. It's a puzzle what is happening...

However, the silver lining of all this was that all of my children made me happy by contacting me.

Thursday morning, April 18
Am due for a second follow-up on ER visits this morning at my PCP in less than an hour from now. But this time, if I start slurring in his presence, I will not accept another trip to ER!  This is because of the help of one of my children who is a Body Talk Systems (BTS) practitioner. She has asked questions that none of the medical people have even come close to asking as I have now become aware of correlations between when I slur and the circumstances associated with the slurring symptom! I'm not yet sold on the BTS approach, but she has made sense to something that has not made good sense to me so far....

Later, Thursday, April 18.
In the ER follow-up with my PCP I read aloud this note from my BTS practitioner daughter:
I’m thinking it’s time to re-evaluate the meds, since they may be overloading your system.  No doubt they are filling you with toxicity, and that combined with the toxic load in the community within which you live is “no good-o” in the words of my girls. 
 If I were you, I would tell your doctor that you are concerned that you are overdosing on your meds.  The fact is, when one does energy medicine, the body becomes more efficient at processing the meds and needs less.  The symptoms of such things are different than traditional medicine looks for.  What happens in overdose with because of higher efficiency is that the presenting symptoms increase.  Traditional MDs think that means they need to increase the meds, but that’s simply not the case, and blood tests have borne this out.  Ask to know how to decrease the meds that you have intuitively felt you need to wean off of.  Certain meds have certain protocols that are essential to follow, though muscle checking can more accurately determine the timing.  The docs are just guessing the best they can, since all dosages are based on averages, not individuals.  We want everything specific to YOU.  
If you could take a bit of a break from these intense interactions and give your brain some space to catch up, that would be good. 
The PCP and I were able to renegotiate and reduce the meds that concerned me. In the afternoon I took a 40+ minute hot Epsom salt--bicarbonate of soda soak after having done weeding in the front yard with my bare hands and walking barefoot on the cold, cold grass. Ah....

Then I received a note from Dr. P with these suggestions below, which terms I didn't recognize.
Haven't had a chance to read the Journey link, but a thought that I had when you had a mini-recurrence during our 2nd phone call was to get checked out also for myasthenia gravis or myositis or other adult onset myopathy.   I realize those are mouthfulls, but relatively easy to check for.   Your doc there has probably already thought of those.
So, I suppose the next step is to request a full written report of the tests and protocols from the hospitals and communicate with my PCP about them.

To be continued....
