Anniversay special: Watch “extraordinary: the stan romanek story” VOD for $2.99!

It’s hard to believe a year has passed since launched. For Richie, Patrick and me, the week leading up to the launch — and especially the 48 hours before — will be something we won’t forget soon due to technical challenges and Patrick’s missing time experience. But we survived, and finally had a chance to share the award-winning documentary film extraordinary: the stan romanek story with a global audience.

In the year since the launch, we have added 1,700 members and have received more than 102,000 page views on our site. Jack Roth has conducted 24 podcasts that have been viewed more than 8,000 times. Not bad. But we want the site to have an even greater reach, and we will continue to develop additional content. More on that later. But first:

To celebrate our one-year anniversary, you can watch the VOD of extraordinary for $2.99 — 50% off the regular $5.99 price. The discount is available through Tuesday, May 12 at 3 p.m. EDT. The VOD will be available for 48 hours from the time you purchase.

Back to the additional content. Our goal from the outset was to provide a variety of alternative point of view content above and beyond the extraordinary: the stan romanek story documentary. The podcasts, blog content and social media content have been relatively easy to keep up with — assuming our full-time jobs allow. The challenge has been to edit and present some of the content that we promised at the outset, including additional footage from the interviews conducted for the documentary. Time and money are always a factor for independent projects, and we are considering a few crowd-sourcing options that may help us create a pathway to more content. Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks.

Finally, we’re wondering what you would like to see on the site in addition to the content we’re already providing. Politics? Religion? Conspiracy theories? Let us know in the comments area what you’d like to see more of.

For those of you who have stuck around for the past year, we thank you for your continued support via comments, emails and social media engagement. It is much appreciated.

Here’s to the next 365 days!


Was There An Apollo 20 Mission?

William Rutledge

In 2007, William Rutledge, a retired NASA mission specialist currently living in Africa, revealed some amazing facts about his involvement with two missions to the moon, the failed Apollo 19 and Apollo 20, which he says was launched in August 1976 from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

According to Rutledge, both of these missions were highly classified joint space missions resulting from collaborations between U.S. and Soviet governments. In other words, the general public had, and still has, no idea these missions ever took place.

The purpose of these missions was to investigate a large alien spacecraft (3,370 meters long and 500 meters high!) on the far side of the moon in the Delporte-Izsak region, allegedly discovered and photographed during the Apollo 15 mission. The photo to the right shows the alien craft on the lunar surface and then superimposed onto New York City. NASA supposed that the craft either crashed or was abandoned on the moon in ancient times.

Rutledge claims that he and Soviet Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov landed a Lunar Module  near the alien ship and actually entered it. Certain artifacts were discovered and recovered, including two bodies alleged to be the pilots. One was very well preserved and appeared to be female. The second body was badly deteriorated and only the head was retrieved.

The alleged photographs and video of the mission specialists actually examining the female body have made their rounds on the Internet in recent years, and, as you can only imagine, this story remains highly controversial. For most people, it’s just too unbelievable to be true.

Believing that NASA conducted top secret, joint U.S./Soviet missions to the moon in the early 1970’s is hard enough for people to wrap their heads around, but the fact that these missions took place in order to explore an ancient alien craft  on the lunar surface strains credulity for most people, even true believers.

However, this story has never been debunked outright, and the images and video associated with it are eerily authentic looking, especially the NASA photographs of the craft on the lunar surface. Eighty-year-old Alexei Leonov certainly isn’t talking, and why William Rutledge did remains a mystery to this day. Maybe, already in the twilight of his life, he decided he was no longer going to keep such an important event a secret.

Until official UFO/alien disclosure occurs, we may never know if these secret missions took place. Debunkers tend to state that the images and video associated with this story are obviously fake, but they offer little to confirm these allegations. But if you simply refuse to believe something, no evidence in the world is going to convince you of its authenticity anyway.

Hopefully, one day soon, we will have more information to share regarding this mind-blowing tale.

Alien-Human Hybrids: What are the Implications?

05-27-09 ET Little Girl CU Low ResDuring our five-year journey down the rabbit hole that was creating “extraordinary: the stan romanek story,” one of the most interesting revelations was the possibility that alien-human hybrids have indeed been created as a result of an extraterrestrial hybridization program that has been operating for decades, if not millennia.

Some of the first-hand accounts, and evidence, we were privy to (and shared in the documentary) was not only compelling but also paradigm shifting in that if true, the human race is dealing with a situation that goes far beyond the mere existence of “other” intelligent life in the universe.

3-29-10 Aztec Child - Contrast ECU Low ResThe question of “how” can be debated forever with no clear answers because, quite frankly, our current science doesn’t allow for the successful hybridization of two highly-evolved, intelligent lifeforms (albeit one much more highly-evolved and intelligent than the other). However, the question of “why” is one that has more fascinating, and possibly terrifying, implications as it applies to humanity.

If we assume, for the sake of this blog post, that alien-human hybrids do exist as a result of a concerted effort on the part of an extraterrestrial (or inter dimensional) race, then let’s ask the question “why?” and attempt to come up with some objective answers (both optimistic and pessimistic).

Answer #1 (optimistic): An extraterrestrial race, or races, are creating alien-human hybrids for the good of humanity. These beings possess the best of humanity (compassion, spirituality) and the extraterrestrial race (intelligence, ability to exist in various dimensions, etc.), and will lead humanity out of its current crisis (global warming, war, disease, etc.) and into a new age of evolution and enlightenment.

ANIMAHybridbyBridgetNielsenAnswer #2 (pessimistic): An extraterrestrial race, or races, are creating alien-human hybrids in order to take over the human race and our planet. As far as the extraterrestrials are concerning, we are a primitive, violent race that is destroying a beautiful and bountiful planet and we all deserve to die (wouldn’t necessarily blame them for thinking this).  These hybrids have already been integrated into our global society and will eventually take over as we continue to destroy ourselves.

Answer #3 (neutral): An extraterrestrial race, or races, are creating alien-human hybrids because their species is dying off and they need to re-populate their home planet with a hybrid species that can both reproduce and survive biologically on their home planet. Yes, the abduction experiences are horrifying for humans, but it is a justifiable means to an end  – SAVING THEIR SPECIES.

Clarion_Human_Extraterrestrial_Alien_Racewmv__115964Answer #4 (neutral): An extraterrestrial race, or races, are creating alien-human hybrids because they can. It is simply a scientific exercise for them. As we find ways to clone sheep, travel to Mars and cure diseases, the extraterrestrials are bending space time  and creating hybrid species on the planets they visit.

Fascinating food for thought. Your comments are welcome. Broadcast # 24 – Chase Kloetzke – UFOs, Close Encounters, Military Cover Up

Part of the mysterious Nazca Lines in Peru.

Chase discusses how her experience with the Department of Defense led her to the field of UFO studies and paranormal phenomena. On a life-long quest for the truth, Chase discusses MUFON’s The Star Team, her very own close encounter experience, the military cover up of crashed UFOs, and some of her recent cases in South America involving ancient megaliths and the Nazca Lines.

Chase is truly “in-the-know” when it comes to UFOlogy and the study of various paranormal phenomena, so join us as she shares her fascinating journey of discovery with us! Broadcast # 23 – Jan Harzan, Executive Director of MUFON

Jan Harzan, Executive Director of MUFON

Join host Jack Roth as he interviews Jan Harzan, the new executive director of MUFON (Mutual UFO Network). Jan talks about the organization’s goals and how he wants to create a global UFO database that anyone can access to view the more than 70,000 case files (and counting) that have been researched and compiled over the years.

Harzan also discusses his own close encounter with a UFO as a young boy, the idea of anti-gravity propulsion, dark matter, mental telepathy, and the fact that there has been an alien intelligence communicating with mankind for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.

The most important issue, he says, is getting people to change dogmatic belief systems and erase the stigma associated with UFOs and extraterrestrial intelligences. By putting a scientific approach around the enigma and documenting the thousands of experiences that people report every month, he believes we can create the paradigm shift needed to break down the walls of secrecy that have been imposed upon us since the 1940s.

Don’t miss this informative and eye-opening issue with the man who plans to take MUFON to the next level when it comes to creating the ultimate global UFO database and creating awareness about the most important story in the history of the human race. Broadcast # 22 – Sam Osmanagic, Ph.D. – Bosnian Pyramids

semir_osmanagicIn 2005, Dr. Sam Osmanagic, Bosnian-born researcher and sociologist, discovered an ancient pyramidal complex in Visoko, Bosnia-Herzegovina. It consists of five colossal stone structures in the shape of the pyramid with an extensive pre-historical underground tunnel network. From the outset of this discovery, Dr. Osmanagic has been attacked by mainstream scientists and the power elite.

Why? Because the implications of this incredible discovery are far-reaching and threaten to change the way we view human history, energy sources and the linear progress of civilizations we’ve been taught to believe.

bosnian_pyramid_fullWhat if, based on the evidence collected from the Bosnian Pyramids, there are unlimited quantities of free and healing energy at our disposal? And what if the ancient civilizations that built these pyramids were actually more advanced than we are today? No, they didn’t have cell phones, but they were more in tune with earth energies and spirit, which enabled them to create advanced technologies by tapping into readily available resources with which modern man has lost touch.

Tune in to altPOV. radio broadcast # 22 tonight as host Jack Roth interviews Dr. Osmanagic and you will never look at ancient civilizations and mainstream archaeology the same way again.



Stan Romanek declared competent to stand trial

Stan learned today that Stan Romanek has been deemed competent to stand trial following his arrest in February on charges of child pornography possession. A pretrial has been set for Jan. 21, 2015, where the judge will review the case to determine if there is sufficient evidence to move to trial.

The pretrial was delayed due to injuries Stan sustained during an attack on February 24, 2014, which included a head injury, a cut to his right arm that required 10 stitches, a fractured orbital bone, a broken tooth, internal bruising on his liver and a significant disruption in his cognitive abilities.

The defense attorney had Stan evaluated by a psychologist in July to determine if he was mentally fit to stand trial following his injuries, which, according to conversations we had with both Stan and Lisa at the time, made it difficult for Stan to process information and communicate clearly with his attorney. Based on these challenges, Lisa shared that the only desire was to get Stan to a point where he could clearly understand and process information before moving forward.

“We never wanted to avoid a trial,” Lisa said. “Our goal all along was for Stan to go through a restorative process that would allow his brain to heal and function clearly. He just wanted time to heal his brain so he would be able to defend himself from these charges.”

When the July defense psychologist report claimed Stan Romanek was not yet competent to stand trial, the DA requested a second review, hiring a psychologist to conduct an evaluation in September.

On Monday, December 1 — which happened to be Stan’s birthday — the two psychologists appeared in court to state their evaluations before the judge, and, according to Lisa, it was a grueling day of significantly opposing points of view.

My assessment of what Lisa shared about Monday’s testimony was that the DA and its psychologist attempted to discredit the prior psych evaluation, the psychologist and Stan himself. Again, this is my interpretation, based on the lengthy conversation I had with Lisa today. After nine hours of testimony on Monday, the judge recessed and said he would have his decision today, Wednesday, December 3.

And that decision was, despite recognition of some cognitive challenges, Stan was competent to stand trial and would need to work with his attorney to overcome any communication obstacles.

According to Lisa, now that a pretrial date has been set, Stan and his attorney will move into defense-planning mode despite the cognitive and communications challenges Stan faces.

“He’ll continue with his therapy so he can do the best he can when the time comes to defend himself,” said Lisa. “Despite everything going on, he’s trying to relax and allow his brain to heal.”

We will continue to share information about Stan Romanek’s case as it develops.

Watch Stephen Bassett interview NOW if you want disclosure in 2015

Stephen Bassett is a leading advocate for ending the 67-year government-imposed truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. In this incredible interview, he discusses the obstacles he has faced over the years, and how, over time, the U.S. government has been losing it’s very firm grip on its secrecy campaign.

    • Did you know that the CIA actually founded and funded the National Enquirer to spread disinformation and misinformation to millions of Americans?
    • Did you know that the Cold War was the perfect alibi for those who have been suppressing the truth?

Thanks to the advent of the Internet and cyberspace, people have been able to communicate with each other – across the globe – more and easier than ever before. Stephen Bassett’s Paradigm Research Group has been operating in cyberspace since 2001 and, along with other UFO researchers, lobbyists and exopolitical advocates, has a plan in place that may lead to full disclosure by February 2015 …

But he needs your help!

Watch this informative Stephen Bassett interview to learn exactly what you can do — no matter where you live in the world — to help facilitate disclosure in 2015.

Disclosure in 2015? Stephen Bassett has a plan

Stephen Bassett
Stephen Bassett

Stephen Bassett has a plan, and boy did he present it emphatically at last weekend’s StarworksUSA UFO conference in Laughlin, Nevada.

One slide in his presentation said it all:

Disclosure: February 2015?

Whoa! Say what? After the murmur in the room subsided, Stephen Bassett brought the audience up to speed with the activities underway that are leading to this reality.

Stephen Bassett’s
3 moves to disclosure

Before outlining his three moves, Bassett talked about the awareness that led to this point in time, including the release of the COMETA Report in 2000 (which encouraged the release of government documents about UFOs from 16 countries over the last 14 years), Steven Greer’s Disclosure Project press conference at the National Press Club in May 2001 (which lost its momentum a few months later after 9/11), astronaut Edgar Mitchell’s testimony and former Canadian defense minister Paul Hellyer’s admissions, among others. The path was indeed prepared for Bassett’s most recent efforts, which he believes will lead to the end of the truth embargo within the next few months.

Accelerating this possibility is an unprecedented level of awareness and acceptance, which Bassett emphasized with these insights:

    • 20 percent of the global population
      believes aliens live among us.
    • 80 percent of US citizens believe
      the government is not telling the truth.
    • 2 percent of the population
      has experienced contact.

Think about that last one for a minute. In the U.S. alone, that’s 1.6 million people. Expand that globally, and we’re talking about 70 million citizens who are contactees. That’s an awful lot of tinfoil hats, wouldn’t you say?

The proverbial skids have been greased, so what happens next or is already happening to lead to disclosure? That’s when Steven Bassett unveiled the three-move win — two of which have already occurred and the third is underway.

Move #1: The Petition

At first, Stephen Bassett expressed significant disappointment to the White House’s response to two separate petitions, with a combined 17,465 signatures, requesting acknowledgement of disclosure.

You can read the entire White House response here, but Bassett specifically refers to this statement:

“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.”

“The response is a lie,” said Bassett. “They could have said, ‘ETs are here, but we’ll have to get back to you.’ Instead, they delivered an absolute lie. An indefensible lie.”

He stated more than 60 years of science and evidence easily refutes that statement, and he pondered for a moment that it was idiotic to even say as much. The White House could have avoided using language like “no evidence” or “no credible information” but they went there. And that’s where Bassett thinks maybe, just maybe, it was intentional.

He even went so far as to say it was “genius” if, indeed, it was intentional, suggesting it was a “gift to the disclosure community” that would help accelerate demand for a congressional hearing. “It was either really stupid or really smart,” he concluded.

Move #2: Citizens Hearing
on Disclosure

“Nothing I have been involved in my entire life has come close to receiving the response this event has received,” said Bassett.

The Citizen Hearing for Disclosure, a mock hearing held in Washington, D.C., April 29-May 3, 2013, was conducted with six former members of Congress and yielded more than 30 hours of testimony from 40 witnesses.

“It was truly amazing because the panel of representatives we hired had no idea what was coming,” said, Chase Kloetzky, a full-time ufology field investigator who accompanied Bassett to the hearing. “When we started, every panel member was expressionless, expecting to hear a few stories from a handful of people. By the end of the first day, they were fully engaged, expressing disbelief and outraged that this information was not getting the attention it deserved from the government. By the end of the week, they clearly understood the importance of our mission. I was honored to be there.”

After the hearings, which were streamed live on the web, Bassett was inundated with messages of support from all over the world.

“We’ve made progress globally,” he said, “but no comment from our government. … Yet.”

Which brings us to Bassett’s anticipated checkmate move …

Move #3: Congressional
Hearing Initiative

This masterful move would make Bobby Fischer, Boris Spassky and even Deep Blue proud. The Citizen Hearing was the setup move, and now Stephen Bassett is going in for the kill move — the Congressional Hearing Initiative — which is a three-act process in itself.

First Act: #disclosure tweet storm. The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure DVD set was mailed to all 538 members of Congress on Nov. 5, and Bassett expected the DVDs would begin arriving on desks this week.

And now — right now — is the time for a tweet storm. Bassett created the website to instruct the masses how to deliver an onslaught of social media messages to Congress, encouraging members to take the Citizen Hearing seriously and escalate the need for a congressional hearing.

The website gives detailed instructions on how to engage Congress and includes suggested messages to drive home these three points:

      1. Review the record on the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure.
      2. Meet with Stephen Bassett to discuss the Citizen Hearing.
      3. Hold the hearing immediately so scores of military/agency/political witnesses can testify under oath confirming an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.

“Now is the time,” said Bassett on Saturday. “#disclosure is currently trending at 2,000 tweets per hour, and we’d like to see that get up to 10,000 within the next two weeks.”

If the people engage, the social media outreach will get members of Congress talking with staff throughout December, setting up the next step.

Second Act: Meetings in Washington. Stephen Bassett will be spending January on Capitol Hill, meeting with every member of Congress he can.

“The social media storm will open doors,” said Bassett, “and we’ll be there to walk through them.”

Bassett explained that the president will be the one who announces disclosure, but he doesn’t think we have to wait until after a congressional hearing for that to happen.

“This strategy is not about Congress, it’s not about the hearing and it’s not about the president ” said Bassett. “It’s about the press. It has always been about the press.”

Third Act: Media frenzy. According to Bassett, the social media campaign is so important because it sets up the meetings in January, and if the meetings are plentiful, there’s a chance the media will catch wind of a potential congressional hearing on disclosure.

“Once the media hears about this, they will respond,” said Bassett. “Every agency in D.C. has a spokesperson, and they all will be grilled about a possible hearing. When that happens, game over.”

Bassett explained that no agency will want to answer these questions daily, which will amplify the asking of even more questions, which eventually will force President Obama to meet with the Pentagon to discuss a post-disclosure plan that protects US national security.

“That’s when President Obama will walk to the podium and deliver the news,” said Bassett. “The truth embargo will end in February.”

Stephen Bassett’s convictions were obvious throughout the conference — during his presentation, when he was on a panel and when he was talking to attendees in the hallways. He repeated over and over “now is the time” and his expectations are extremely high that citizens will visit and do their part in driving disclosure.

The time is now, and you can play a role in ensuring disclosure occurs in February 2015.
