High Strangeness


Contractor for Pentagon and secret government research speaks out on UFO study he conducted

George Knapp interview
A secret Pentagon program to study unknown aerial objects -- otherwise known as UFOs -- may not be finished after all.

The civilian contractor for the program was Bigelow Aerospace, based in Las Vegas. Their contract ended in 2012, but the man who managed the program inside the Pentagon thinks it is still operating.

His name is Luis Elizondo, and most of us first heard his name last October when he stood on a stage with rock star Tom DeLonge and other government insiders.

Comment: Looks like 'Disclosure 2.0' is in operation - but what that actually comes to mean we'll have to wait for...

Elizondo said he had spent 10 years as the head of a secret study of unidentified aerial objects. He also was instrumental in the release of official UFO videos recorded by military pilots.

The I-Team sat down with him earlier this week to ask, among other things, why the Pentagon considered UFOs to be a potential threat.

A controversial tale of the Cannock 'Alien Big Cats'

Big cat
If someone had said to me before I embarked upon my first quest for the truth about reports of large, unidentified cats in the woods of Cannock Chase, England that I would find myself digging into the accounts of a character known as the Lion Man and his pal, One-Eyed Nick - whose moniker made him sound like something straight out of the pages of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic 1883 story Treasure Island - I would probably have merely smiled and forgotten about it. But sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.

Although my fascination for the dark tales of strange creatures on the Cannock Chase began in my childhood, it wasn't until I was around nineteen or twenty that I made my first serious attempt to try and resolve the matter of Cannock's "Alien Big Cats," as they are known in the world of Forteana. I wrote letters to a few local newspapers, which were published, and which opened the doors to a few interesting stories and leads.


The Kalanoro: Madagascar's mysterious little people

madagascar kalanoro
There are plenty of reports of enormous hairy hominids from all over the world, and indeed they seem to be a phenomenon that spans across cultures. Yet equally as curious and bizarre are the stories of smaller, miniature versions of these man-like beasts. One place that has long has a tradition of curious little forest people is the island nation of Madagascar, which is a majestic land full of spectacular mysteries both known and unknown.

Located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of East Africa lies the island nation of Madagascar, or officially the Republic of Madagascar. The main island is the fourth largest island in the world, and broke off from the Indian peninsula approximately 88 million years ago, after which the flora and fauna went on to evolve in complete isolation. It is due to this unique geological history that the island has a wealthy abundance of completely unique species and ecosystems seen nowhere else on Earth, with many more thought to remain undocumented. Considering this remote isolation, the swaths of pristine, uncharted wilderness, such a plethora of unique wildlife, and the strong possibility of lost, unidentified species, it should come as no surprise that Madagascar also has its share of bizarre and elusive mystery monsters.

Porton Down, Base AL/499 and bizarre accounts of other mysterious phantom bases

Sign Restricted

One cornerstone of many a conspiracy theory is that of mysterious secret bases. Governments around the world do have extremely secretive, off-limits bases scattered throughout all corners of the globe, which draw to them such stories of strange experiments, secret research, UFOs, and all manner of high strangeness. Many of these have become legendary for the thick cloud of intrigue and bizarre tales orbiting them, such as the infamous and much-discussed Area 51 in Nevada. My colleague Nick Redfern recently also talked about deep weirdness at the top-secret Porton Down military installation in the English county of Wiltshire. However, while the stories surrounding many of these sorts of facilities may or may not hold any truth, at least the bases themselves are known to be real, if not fully understood. Yet there are other supposed secret bases out there that hover out in the realm of pure speculation, rumor, myth. For some supposed secret bases, their very existence seems to be fueled by pure conspiracy theory, and it is not really known if they have ever even existed or not. These are the weird, very often eyebrow raising tales of phantom secret bases that may or may not exist and the bizarreness that surrounds them.

One such base is known as Base AL/499, and is known primarily through the testimony of a James Casbolt, who came forward to claim to have been a high level intelligence operative at the top secret facility. According to Casbolt, Base AL/499 is supposedly located 200 feet under the earth in a subterranean cavern under the English village of Peasemore, and is involved with the top secret Project Mannequin, which supposedly seeks primarily to clone genetically enhanced humans and to research various methods of mind-control to create sleeper assassins that could be activated at any time. The base is apparently overseen by the NSA, and it is all made even more ominous when considering the fact that Casbolt also claims that Base AL/499 has connections with the secret society the Illuminati.

David paints his ‘encounters’
A man who claims he lost his virginity to an alien at the age of 17 shares some very interesting details of his 'close encounters' on Monday's episode of This Morning. Speaking to co-host Phillip Schofield and Holly Willougby, David Huggins insists to have fathered hundreds of half-human babies after sleeping with a 'busty' alien named Crescent.

The man, who is 74-years-old, and lives in New York spoke to the ITV hosts via a live video link - and it is safe to say that Holly and Phil's emotions showed on their faces.

David said he first met aliens when he was eight but that things took a steamy turn when he was 17 - and all events have inspired him to create artworks that show the contacts in graphic detail.

A scene from the 1973 film The Exorcist
In recent years, according to Catholic priests, there has been a marked increase in reports of possession and requests for exorcism. In the last ten years the number of exorcist priests has more than quadrupled. The idea that demons exist and can possess people is one of the most widely held religious beliefs in the world. Demons were once thought to be the cause of multiple physical and mental diseases and today people around the world are turning to this belief once again.

Join us for this episode of The Health and Wellness Show where we'll discuss our haunted planet, high strangeness and what could be the underlying reasons for the rise in so-called demonic activity.

And stay tuned at the end of the show for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be thinking and feeling animals.

Philosopher Rudolf Steiner talked of supernatural beings that feed on negative emotions

Rudolf Steiner
Anxiety, depression, and fear ravage so many today, but few pause to consider that in addition to the material influences in our lives, we may be also under the influence of beings which exist in dimensions outside of our ordinary perception.

But there is much more to reality than what we can see, feel, hear, taste and touch. In fact, an accounting of the matter that makes up the universe reveals that some 73% of it is made up of dark energy, and another 23% is made up of dark matter, neither of which can we see, nor understand. Furthermore, the human eye is only capable of seeing around .0035% of the entire spectrum of electromagnetic (EM) radiation. When we look into the heavens, 96% of it is invisible to us. Include in this the spiritual realms and there is an entire universe of possibilities which exists beyond our five senses.

Comment: One thing in regards to the 'topic of all topics' as Carlos Castaneda put it, is that one can get caught up looking 'out there' for the reasons why negative emotions manifest in their lives. But one of the most surest ways of protecting oneself is through gaining knowledge and awareness, which also means taking responsibility for our emotional states despite any outside interference.

Fr. Pat Collins calls in for back up
An Irish priest and exorcist is asking the country's bishops for more support after noticing a dramatic increase in demonic activity in the country.

In a recent interview with The Irish Catholic, Fr. Pat Collins said he has been overwhelmed with the number of requests for exorcisms from the faithful in Ireland. In an open letter, he has urged the Irish bishops to train more priests to deal with the demand.

"(I)t's only in recent years that the demand has risen exponentially," Collins told The Irish Catholic.

Comment: Religious leaders have been saying similar things:


Will aliens save humanity? Probably not

It was July 1st 1952 when Look magazine carried this story: "Flying Saucers- The Hunt Goes On" with the byline: "Fearful of danger from the skies, the United States Air Force is launching a secret search to discover once-and-for-all what is the mysterious, unbelievable thing Americans keep sighting overhead."

At the time, the Air Force confirmed more than 800 sightings of flying saucers with reports from outposts all across the country, including "our vital atomic installation sites." Atomic sites were specific areas of intense interests for the odd fast-moving saucers.

UFO video is the start of 'War of the Worlds' claims US Navy pilot

The world is still adjusting to the discovery that the Pentagon maintained a secret UFO program for over the past half a decade.

Emboldened by the news, many UFO enthusiasts and genuine experts have begun weighing in on the matter, arguing either for or against the existence of the alien visitors that the US government is so eager to study.

One of the most compelling pieces of evidence suggesting that UFOs really are the result of highly advanced technology comes in the form of footage from two F/A-18F super hornets who, in 2004, spotted a white "tic-tac" shaped aircraft off the coast of San Diego.
