The illustration is from STAR SHIELD and the Legacy of Ronald Reagan By Michael Schratt [PDF]

Art by John MacNeill.

It depicts the famous Hudson Valley UFO during one of it’s appearances, this particular one over the Taconic State Parkway in New York on March 24, 1983.

It can be seen just after the 1:15:00 mark in this video www.youtube.com…, wherein Michael Schratt discusses the Hudson Valley Boomerang.

Very nice artwork. Captures the scene well. I quite like it.

Joe Rogan Experience #1315 – Bob Lazar & Jeremy Corbell

PowerfulJRE
Jun 20, 2019

Bob Lazar is a physicist who worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, and also on reverse engineering extraterrestrial technology at a site called S-4 near the Area 51 Groom Lake operating location.

Jeremy Corbell is a contemporary artist and documentary filmmaker. Watch the documentary “Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers” now streaming on Netflix.

OMG this is SO excellent! For years I did not know what to make of Bob due to the intense efforts against him. But this clears it all up for me. This to me is thrilling and I implore you to watch every minute of it.

Peace and be well.

 

 

Navy Pilot sees “dark mass” take torpedo……

Navy Pilot David Fravor claimed on Oct. 5th that a mystery “dark mass” emerged from the ocean and swallowed a torpedo whole. He also claims another Navy Pilot had something like this happen off the coast of Puerto Rico in the 1990’s.

He described what happened:

As they hoist the BQM [torpedo] up, he’s looking at this thing going, ‘What the hell is that?’ And then it just goes back down underwater. “Once they pull the kid and the BQM out of the water, this object descends back into the depths.” While the other pilot thought the incident was strange, indicating some skepticism, the same thing happened a few months later, Fravor claimed. “He’s out picking up a torpedo, they hook the diver up on the winch, and as they’re lowering him down, he sees this big mass,” Fravor said. “He goes, ‘It’s not a submarine,’ he’s seen submarines before, once you’ve seen a submarine you can’t confuse it with something else.” “This big object, kind of circular, is coming up from the depths and he starts screaming through the intercom system to tell them to pull the diver up, and the diver’s only a few feet from the water,” he added. “They reverse the winch and the diver’s thinking: ‘What the hell is going on?’ And all of a sudden he said the torpedo just got sucked down underwater, and the object just descended back down into the depths.”

Fravor said the torpedo was never recovered and was adamant the torpedo didn’t sink and was “sucked down.”
Fravor had an encounter with a ufo while with the USS Nimitz in 2004, and he described the object he saw as “something not from this world.”

Fravor said the object was flying around a patch of white water in the ocean below. “A white Tic Tac, about the same size as a Hornet, 40 feet long with no wings,” Fravor described. “Just hanging close to the water.” “As I get closer, as my nose is starting to pull back up, it accelerates and it’s gone,” he said. “Faster than I’d ever seen anything in my life. We turn around, say let’s go see what’s in the water and there’s nothing. Just blue water.” “I don’t think I was a nut-job as an officer in the Navy. I wasn’t drunk, I don’t do drugs. I got a good night’s rest, it was a clear day,” he said. “I think someone should have looked into it. Having talked to some of the other folks, it’s a big frustration that it’s coming out now and wasn’t discussed back in 2004.” While Fravor is often ridiculed for his theories, the U.S. Navy recently admitted that a series of UFO videos are real.

Fravor talks about this encounter at the 54:38 mark of the video:

Note: on the last episode of the great show called “Contact” on Discovery and the Science Channel they talked about USOs, and it was presented in the last episode that the Navy actually has underwater listening posts stationed around the world to monitor for USOs.

Holy Cow! I would give anything to see this. I have felt for a long time after reading decades of sighting reports that there is some sort of lifeform of a highly advanced nature that is extant in the depths of our oceans. After all that data input it is pretty difficult to deny.

It is one of the most fascinating mysteries that I have encountered. May we someday see video and more information.

 

 

Alte Kameraden – Heino – Lyrics

Viejos Camaradas, una exitosa marcha alemana compuesto por Carl Teike en el año de 1889 e interpretada por Heino.

Old Comrades, a successful German march composed by Carl Teike in the year 1889 and performed by Heino.

I love Heino. He is a musical God. Sold 52 million records, more than any other German artist in history.

I hear his music is banned in Germany, which, if true, is the most asinine thing that that sad vestige of a country has yet done.

[ NOTE: It appears that just a certain Heino bio / doumentary is banned there, but, that, too, strikes me as profoundly pathetic. ]

He is retiring this year. Sad, that. Maybe at 80 he cannot keep up the pace anymore? Maybe he just wants to relax.

I was introduced to his music somewhere around 2019-2010 or so by the strange female that tried to kill me. He is the silver lining to that whole trip, eh.

I dunno, his music, his voice, his values… are all just… wonderful.

He is at www.heino.de

Dig it.

John Mayall – Peter Green “The Stumble” LIVE 1967

Gibbo
Jul 16, 2010

John Mayall used to record his concerts on a simple reel-to-reel recorder. Surprisingly little material with Peter Green on guitar has emerged, but here’s a lengthy version of Freddie King’s “The Stumble,” incidentally with future Fleetwood Mac rhythm section comprising John McVie and Mick Fleetwood. So this must have been early 1967 as Fleetwood was only in the Bluesbreakers for a couple of weeks in the spring of that year.

Hot stuff!

Wicked hot.

I imagine in some way this is illustrating the Arthur C. Clarke story. Rama is the name of the alien spacecraft featured in the tale, which, sadly, I have yet to read.

I will begin posting what I consider some of the best Blue Book cases. Out of the 12,000+ cases there are a few hundred that have sufficient information and good quality witnesses that I would categorize them as excellent cases.

The very first case is of course the Kenneth Arnold case of June 24, 1947. This case is well known and you can find plenty of well written articles that analyze this sighting. Something that might interest you is an interview with him from long ago.

Well, now, this is very cool to listen to the real story, right from the horse’s mouth.

It was March 24, 1967 at Malmstrom AFB when Dr. Roy Craig of the Condon Committee interviewed Boeing engineer Jay Nagle. The interview related to Jay Nagle’s experience as an Army radar operator during the May-July 1952 UFO waves off the east coast. Mike Swords and I obtained a copy of this interview in 2009 from the personal files of Dr. Craig, compliments of the Cushing Memorial Library at Texas A&M University. This 22 minute interview is very interesting. FaceBook doesn’t allow posting audio files so I have made it available on Google Drive at the following location: drive.google.com/…/1ds2FscGXPJIBRp6nJkngLCY9v…/view…

In this interview Nagle discusses how UFOs were detected on radar almost daily in the summer of 1952 and that they received an order from the Pentagon to fire on UFOs with 90mm artillery guns whenever their radar detected the UFOs in range of the guns. He describes these orders as well as the results of subsequent F-94 jet scrambles. The information from this interview taken by Dr. Craig was never made part of the Condon Committee report on UFOs.

“…never made part of the Condon Committee report on UFOs”… That was to be expected, of course, as the Condon Committee was intended to be an obfuscation of the topic for the public. Not to figure out UFOs.

90mm guns are pretty serious. Well, at least based on our perception within the reality we live in.

Be well.

 

 

I say, nearly every time they go down they find something new. I love that so much.

I welcome ‘Champ Search’ field researcher Katy Elizabeth to Arcane Radio. Katy is a world-leading authority on the Lake Champlain Monster. Katy has been studying the existence of Champ since a child and made her life long dream into reality when she had her own sighting and experiences of this elusive creature. It prompted her to start her own group called “Champ Search.” The group’s goal is to study, investigate, prove the existence and most importantly protect the unique animals that inhabit New York and Vermont’s beautiful Lake Champlain. Katy has been featured on The History Channel and the Discovery Channel and is the author of the book Water Horse Of Lake Champlain II. She is currently writing the next edition. Her website can be found at officialchampsearch.webs.com

This is an excellent show and you’ll learn a lot about the Champ animal and the environment in which it lives.

Highly recommended!

This Riley-Ford powered design that was apparently being used to promote General Balloon Jumbo tires in this undated photo. Details about the car are sketchy, but it was apparently built by Libby Body Works of Kansas City, Missouri as a rolling billboard for the Young Advertising Company using conventional Ford Model “A” running gear and a Riley OHV conversion.

We have some info on the famous Riley Four Port Head, but would like to learn more about this teardropper. Check out our post on The Old Motor and let us know if you can help us with more info.

Earlier this month, we made reference to the teardrop streamliner craze of the mid-1930’s in our post about Buckminster Fuller’s Dymaxion car . One such car that we didn’t see in the various sources that we came across is this Riley-Ford powered design that was apparently being used to promote General Balloon Jumbo tires in this undated photo. Details about the car are sketchy, but it was apparently built by Libby Body Works of Kansas City, Missouri as a rolling billboard for the Young Advertising Company using conventional Ford Model “A” running gear and a Riley OHV conversion as seen (below).

ultra jeep

This might be the coolest Jeep ever built. It has eight-wheel-drive, a rear-mounted V8, and of course it has a rifle. Somehow, it is both for sale and startlingly adorable.

Three Willys Jeeps gave their lives to build this thing. All the wheels steer and they’re all powered by a 327 Covette motor in the back.

It also looks like a giant green ladybug with big, cute eyes.

If you’re in Colorado and you have something more than $8,001, you should scoop this thing up and hit some off road trials in it. Save it from a life of parades and climate-controlled garages.
