Question

Missing 411? TV producer Terrence Woods vanished while filming on The 'Gold Rush' franchise for Discovery

Terrence Woods missing

Terrence Woods
It's a story that sounds like it belongs in a This American Life podcast. A young TV producer mysteriously vanishes while filming on the Gold Rush franchise for Discovery in the abandoned mines of Idaho County, ID. Nearly two years later, there remains not a shred of evidence about Terrence Woods' whereabouts. Instead, in his absence, there is a grief-stricken family, a befuddled sheriff, and questions for a prolific UK production company ultimately co-owned by Discovery.

Woods was 27 when he went missing on October 5, 2018. Little has been written about his disappearance other than by local U.S. news outlets, but a social media campaign to unearth more information about the Maryland-born filmmaker has gained traction in recent weeks following the Black Lives Matter movement. Woods' disappearance is being passionately discussed by TV freelancers in closed Facebook groups, while producer Raw TV has come under renewed pressure to provide answers and support for those who knew Woods in their quest for new leads.

Comment: Woods' strange disappearance matches the profile compiled by researcher David Paulides in many ways. A bright young man, mountainous terrain (likely granite), running water near by, a complete absence of evidence as to his fate. The fact that another vanishing in the same area on the same day only adds to the mystery.

A photograph of a screen shows infra-red video of taken from a Mexican Air Force patrol aircraft of 7 bright objects flying over the eastern coastal state of Campeche on March 25, 2004.
Officials from the U.S. Department of Defense confirmed that the Pentagon is forming a special task force that will oversee the investigations on the UFO encounters by military personnel.

The task force, which will be officially unveiled within the next couple of days, will be headed by Deputy Secretary of Defense David Norquist, CNN reported. The task force will mainly focus on the UFO sightings of members of the U.S. military.

Some of the incidents the task force will look into include the UFO sightings by pilots of the U.S. Navy. Videos of the encounters, which were recorded by the military jets' onboard imaging systems, were released to the public in 2017 and 2018 by the aerospace company To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science.

French police are investigating a spate of killings of horses involving mutilation of the animals' bodies.

The latest in Cortambert, a village in the Saone-et-Loire region, occurred overnight on Friday.

The horse's right ear was cut off, one of its eyes was gouged out and its genitals had been cut away. "This is absolutely barbaric," a local official said.

"The CIA simulated UFO abductions in Latin America as psychological warfare experiments" says Dr. Jacques Vallée in latest book

Vallee & J.Hynek

The picture you see above is of Joseph Allen Hynek, American astronomer, professor, and ufologist. Hynek acted as scientific advisor to UFO studies undertaken by the U.S. Air Force under three consecutive projects: Project Sign (1947-1949), Project Grudge (1949-1952), and Project Blue Book (1952-1969). The man standing next to him is Dr. Jacques Vallee, more on him below.

Throughout history, the field of ufology and the examination of the extraterrestrial hypothesis has, without a doubt, been overcome with a plethora of disinformation. Those who have dived into the depths of ufology know this best, as it's well documented that 'outsiders' from intelligence agencies and governments have infiltrated the field for the purposes of deceiving researchers and people who are interested in the topic for one simple reason, to keep them away from the truth. On top of these disinformation campaigns, which still seem to be in operation today, there has long been an "official campaign of ridicule and secrecy" (Roscoe Hillenkoetter, Ex CIA director) associated with the subject. This is why I encourage all those reading who dive into this subject to stick with facts, data, and evidence rather than entertain what seem to be outlandish claims that in no way, at all, can be verified.

I'd like to draw your attention to Dr. Jacques Vallee, who holds a master's degree in astrophysics and a Ph.D. in computer science. The subject of UFOs first attracted his attention as an astronomer in Paris. He subsequently became a close associate of Project Blue Book's J. Allen Hynek and has written several books on the UFO enigma. He is currently a venture capitalist living in San Francisco. Vallée co-developed the first computerized map of Mars for NASA in 1963. He later worked on the network information center for the ARPANET, a precursor to the modern Internet, as a staff engineer of SRI International's Augmentation Research Center under Douglas Engelbart.

He's a researcher that's had a very interesting life, to say the least, with regards to researching the topic of UFOs. He's come into contact with and had meetings with most experts in the field, politicians from around the world, high ranking military personnel and much more. His journey into the subject has led him to investigate an uncountable amount of case reports regarding UFOs and supposed extraterrestrial beings, and he's been a major player with regards to bringing the mainstream scientific community forward to look at the evidence and data that's involved with such a serious subject, that, in his time, was largely ridiculed. He is an important reason why the phenomenon has gained as much credibility as it has today.

Valle is one of many who have written about and documented the startling evidence that well-constructed hoaxes and media manipulations have misled UFO researchers, diverting them from the UFO phenomenon itself, what's really going on.

Investigations task force possible after more cattle mutilations in eastern Oregon

A fog of dust is kicked up from hooves as cowboys quietly push cattle into a corral from a big draw on Silvies Valley Ranch near Burns, Oregon, in 2019.
Two more cattle have been mysteriously killed in rural eastern Oregon. This follows a number of unexplained killings of cattle in the region over the past year.

A black-coated cow was found dead in July outside of Fossil, found sitting with her legs tucked under her body with her head off the ground. Pictures show her eyes bulging out with flies around the body. The cow's tongue and genitals were removed.

"It was a clean cut, so it wasn't wildlife," Wheeler County Sheriff's deputy Jeremiah Holmes said. "There were upwards of 80 cows milling around there ... so signs of tire tracks, boot tracks were pretty much non-existent." Holmes later followed up with the Northwest News Network to say there was no official cause of death determined yet, but a "partial boot print" was found about 100 yards from the cow.

Missing 411? Teen found alive in woods after going missing for 8 days and is unable to explain what happened

Gia Fuda
A teenager who went missing for over a week in Washington state was found alive Saturday in the heavily wooded Cascade Mountains, authorities said.

"It's very rare. It is definitely a miracle, and we are so thrilled that she is OK and made it out of there," Sgt. Ryan Abbott told reporters. "There has been so much support, and so much interest and people wanting to help. It's nice to see."

Fuda was last seen on July 24, when she left her home in Maple Vally, Wash., without telling her family where she was going.

Her 2008 Toyota Corolla was found west of Stevens Pass by a state transportation worker.

Detectives said Fuda stopped at a coffee shop before running out of gas. Personal items were found inside the vehicle, but her phone was powered off.

Comment: This has many of the hallmarks of a Missing 411 case. Why would she take her shoes off if she were walking through the woods? Why can't she remember what happened? The detail about her being discovered next to a creek is another profile point in Missing 411 cases. She is lucky to be alive. See:

Exorcist claims possessed woman threw 4 men across room and spoke demonic language

A practising exorcist claims he once witnessed a terrifying case of demonic possession where a woman with a demon inside her threw four men across a room.

Bishop Plato Angelakis, an ordained Orthodox Catholic priest with the Oblates of St Therese in Wisconsin, US, said it was his first-ever exorcism and involved himself and a small group of other priests.

The victim, a 60-year-old woman, was said to have not "eaten or drank anything for a month" and so the priests visited her home to try and rid her of the evil presence.

Talking on The Exorcist TV Show Podcast, Bishop Angelakis explained what he saw.

Rancher David Hunt found a cow dead and mutilated Thursday, with her tongue, genitals and reproductive organs cut out — and she was placed in an upright position.
Authorities are investigating the death and mutilation of yet another cow — this time, on rangeland near Fossil, Ore.

And the culprit may have left a clue: a boot print.

The black Angus cow, a breeding animal worth about $1,000, was found Thursday dead and mutilated — tongue, genitals and reproductive organs cut out. Her carcass was found upright, front legs tucked underneath, a position investigators say they haven't seen before.

The cause of death is unknown, and authorities told the Capital Press the case is ongoing.

"She died in a position she couldn't have gotten into by herself. I don't have any kind of logical explanation for it," said David Hunt, owner of Hunt Ranch and a partner-producer for Painted Hills Natural Beef Inc.

Evidence suggests UFO whistleblower Bob Lazar was telling the truth all along - world owes him an apology

bob lazar
Near the end of his 2019 autobiography, Bob Lazar writes, "I'm no kind of hero."

With each passing day, that seems less true. I know what you're thinking: Is this idiot really devoting a column to a controversial UFO whistleblower during a global pandemic? Should I stop reading this tinfoil claptrap right now and spend the next few minutes on something more productive?

Answers: 1. Yes. 2. Probably.

OK. To everyone still here, why is Bob Lazar on my mind? Because I just read a New York Times story — "No Longer in Shadows, Pentagon's U.F.O. Unit Will Make Some Findings Public" — that includes a buried nugget about how astrophysicist and Pentagon contractor Eric W. Davis gave a classified briefing to government officials in March about retrieved "off-world vehicles not made on this earth."

I know. It's nuts. If you ever watched "The X-Files," the U.S. government has basically done a 180 on UFOs. For nearly a century, intel gathering under clandestine programs — Project Mogul, Project Sign, Project Grudge, Project Blue Book, Project Ozma — had one guiding principle: blanket denial.

The stated goal was to investigate UFO sightings. The outcome was official excuses.

UFOs were weather balloons or street lamps or migrating birds. They were illusions refracted by the natural world. They were fantasies of deranged imaginations. They were not real.

All of that has changed dramatically, starting with a 2017 New York Times blockbuster that revealed the existence of the U.S. government's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, created a decade earlier to analyze unexplained phenomena. The Navy has since publicly verified three videos that show unidentified aircraft violating the laws of aerodynamics. Apparently, there are more.

Drip-drip disclosure: Pentagon UFO unit 'to publicly release some findings' after ex-official says 'off-world vehicle' found

A Pentagon UFO unit will make some investigations public as ex-advisors suggest that "vehicles not made on this earth" were placed in US government storage.

The team will update the US Senate's Intelligence Committee on its unidentified flying object (UFO) research every six months, The New York Times reported on Thursday.

Publicly named in 2019 as the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force, the Pentagon unit succeeded an investigative UFO program that was said to have been disbanded prior to 2017.

One former official, Eric Davis, told The Times that he briefed the US Department of Defense in March about the retrieval of "off-world vehicles not made on this earth". The Pentagon consultant and subcontractor said objects he believed "we couldn't make...ourselves" were discovered during his time on the unit, where he has worked since 2007.
