Category Archives: Uncategorized broadcast # 19 – A Conversation About Conspiracy Theories

Richard Nixon denied his involvement in Watergate until it was made clear to him that he wasn’t going to be able to lie his way out of it.

In our last podcast, Jon Sumple and I discussed conspiracy theories, and more specifically talked about what makes a conspiracy theory a conspiracy theory as opposed to a belief system. We also noted that the term “conspiracy theorist” has been used in a negative way to stigmatize anyone who questions authority and believes that the telling of the “truth” is the most important aspect of any free society.

And the truth is, both our government and the mainstream media have earned our distrust. The U.S. government has been caught lying before. Watergate. MK Ultra. The Tuskegee Syphilis Study. Operation Northwoods. Iran-Contra. The list goes on … and the lies continue to pile up.

And the media, with the exception of Watergate and more so recently, has been missing in action. Somewhere along the way, the media has become complicit in the deception perpetrated by the government (or at least some very powerful individuals within the U.S. government) towards the American people.

Some debunkers actually say that believing in conspiracy theories is a psychological condition, but isn’t accepting what authority figures say as fact even when they’ve been caught lying many times before a more disturbing psychological condition. To say that someone is complacent or naive in this case is being way too kind. So why don’t people want to know the truth? Are they more comfortable believing their authority figures can do no wrong?

During the show, Jon Sumple and I discuss the Kennedy Assassination, the UFO cover up, 9/11 and other conspiracy theories that are extremely divisive. I pointed out that as far as the Kennedy assassination goes, the only thing you need to consider to raise a SERIOUS red flag is that Jack Ruby, a known mobster with ties to the Dallas, Chicago and New Orleans underworlds, strolled into the basement of the Dallas Police Department and right under the noses of hundreds of police officers shot Lee Harvey Oswald because, as he put it, he didn’t want Mrs. Kennedy to go through the emotional turmoil of an Oswald trial. In my opinion, anyone who accepts this as “not the least bit troubling” simply doesn’t want to believe that others were involved in the Kennedy assassination.

Do conspiracy theorists have vivid imaginations and psychological defects, or are they logical, objective individuals who simply do the research that is required to expose truths, like pieces of a very large and complex puzzle, which puts them one step closer to knowing something that the powers that be don’t want them to know?

Thomas Reed B&WThomas Reed is a UFO abductee whose family has been at the center of one of the most compelling UFO cases ever. He is the son of the late Dr. Howard Reed, a Connecticut attorney and politician who was supported by Senator Christopher Dodd in his run for office.

Thom and his brother began experiencing strange events in the 1960s, beginning with a strange UFO sighting and leading to multiple abductions. Some of their encounters were witnessed by others and investigated by UFO researcher J. Allen Hynek, who was an astronomer and consultant for the Air Force on the subject of UFOs. The Reed brothers’ encounters include memories of being taken by strange creatures and examined. They also describe ant people and strange looking humanoids.

The Reed case is classified as a Close Encounter of the Fourth Kind (a UFO event in which a human is abducted by a UFO or its occupants) with physical evidence.

Was Thom’s father murdered because he knew too much?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJust a reminder that this week’s guest on is renowned UFOlogist and hypnotherapist Yvonne Smith. Yvonne has been one of the leading researchers of alien abduction for decades. She founded the Close Encounter Research Organization (CERO) in 1991 to help inform the public on the phenomenon and to provide support for those who feel they have experienced alien abduction.

We will be talking about her fascinating new book, Coronado: The President, The Secret Service and Alien Abductions. The book chronicles her investigation of strange events that took place during a conference she hosted in 1994 at the famous Hotel del Coronado. During the conference, U.S. President Bill Clinton gave a talk in another part of the hotel. Over the years, Yvonne has uncovered evidence that some of the attendees of the conference may have been abducted, despite the heavy presence of secret service personnel due to the President’s visit.

Susan Bedell Talks About the Webster County, Missouri UFO Flap on

1928112121_6d678356c6Susan Bedell was an investigator on one of the most bizarre UFO cases ever, and she graciously shared her experience with me on this week’s podcast. From 1994 to 2001, Webster County, Missouri, was ground zero for an incredible UFO/cattle mutilation/paranormal flap. Nestled within the Ozark Mountains, Webster County is made up of small towns and down-to-earth people who would rather be left alone than talk about UFOs and aliens, but during a seven-year period, the good folks in and around this county were having strange experiences that left them both frightened and not knowing where to turn.

Cattle mutilations, UFO sightings, E.T. sightings, unknown creature sightings, weather anomalies, strange visions and dreams, lost pregnancies and the presence of a curious military are just some of the things that people experienced during this time.

captured-grayAlien greys peeking into school house windows, balls of light flying around a house during a child’s birthday party, NASA representatives making inquiries, residents seeing glimpses of other realms as if through an inter-dimensional portal … and most disturbing … all of this strange activity led up to the brutal murder of one of the experiencers.

Join me as I talk to Susan about this incredible, and little-known, case that had both researchers and witnesses befuddled. What happened in Webster County, Missouri in the late 1990s? Was it a military experiment gone wrong? Did it become a laboratory for E.T.’s in which to conduct DNA/hybrid experiments?

The Mt. Popocatepetl Mexico UFO Prophecy

By Ruben Uriarte, Guest Blogger

Mt. Popo
Mt. Popocatepetl

It has been my good fortune to visit UFO hotspots in Mexico over the past years and to talk to many Mexican UFO investigators and eyewitnesses. My interest in the Mexico UFO experience began in the mid-1990s when I served as a researcher, guide and translator for Beyond Boundaries, a tour company that specialized in taking people to areas of high UFO activity throughout the world, including Mexico.

There have been numerous reports by many people living near Mt. Popocatepetl, an active volcano, that have observed seeing strange objects flying in and out of the volcano’s crater. Some people have speculated that there is a hidden alien base located somewhere deep within the mountain. The name Popocatepetl comes from the Aztec Nahuatl words popōca “it smokes” and tepētl “mountain,” thus Smoking Mountain.

Claudio Gonzalez being interviewed by Ruben Uriarte and other researchers.

We met several contactees during the 1996 expedition, including a young boy named Claudio Gonzalez, in the small town of Atlimiyaya. This town was famous for its trout fisheries and restaurants, and it also happens to be located near Mt. Popocatepetl

Claudio told us that three years earlier in 1993, he and a friend saw three small beings while they were herding goats. The boys were sitting along a rock ledge when suddenly a bright, intense light appeared. The goats became very frightened and formed a protective circle. Claudio said he was able to see three small beings wearing tight fitting clothing. He described them as having large heads, strange faces and no mouths. He described one of the beings as having strange markings on its head and a small beard or growth of fine hair on its chin. He said that the bearded beings spoke “telepathically” to him and his friend. Claudio heard and felt a garbled voice within his head. The bearded being said that they were there to protect the mountain and prevent the “others” from erupting the volcano.

During the telepathic link, the being also revealed to Claudio a future event that caused Claudio great puzzlement. The bearded being said that there would be a “war” in New York. As Claudio had limited education and had never been outside his village, he did not know anything about New York. The being also revealed that the “war” would cause the entire world to go “on alert.”

World Trade Center
World Trade Center on September 11, 2001

When I interviewed Claudio in 1996, I thought that the being was referring to the first terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in 1993. Obviously, after the 2001 attack, my assessment of the mysterious prophecy delivered to Claudio has changed. It’s now clear to me that the beings may have been foretelling the destruction of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

A month later, while his home one evening, a large beam of light came from the sky and lit up Claudio’s entire home. His father and mother were terrified and told the children to remain in the house.

The “Strange Universe” was a paranormal television show that originally aired from 1996 to 1997. The show presented “The Mexico Files” or “MEX Files,” a series on the UFO phenomenon in Mexico. The film crew went and interviewed Claudio about his encounters and the strange prophecy.

This story is one of many unusual experiences that I had while traveling in Mexico investigating reports of UFOs and other high strangeness.

Ruben Uriarte BWRuben Uriarte is a UFO researcher and author who has spent several decades investigating UFO crash sites and other UFO phenomena in the Southwest United States and Mexico. He has written several books, including Mexico’s Roswell, Aliens in the Forest and the Coyame Incident.

Ruben Uriarte Talks About UFO Crashes and the Mexico UFO Enigma

impact3I had a great interview with UFO researcher Ruben Uriarte for broadcast #15, which will go live tonight! We discussed his extensive research in the area of UFO crashes, and the fact that, over the years, many of these crashes have occurred along the southwestern United States and Mexico border. During his investigations throughout Mexico, Ruben shares a fascinating story about a Mexican boy named Claudio, who in 1993 had a strange encounter with alien beings near Mount Popocatepetl. According to Claudio, they communicated with him telepathically and told him that there would be a “war” that occurred in New York and that this “war” would put the entire world on alert. Eight years later, on September 11, 2001, we experienced the darkest day in American history when we were attacked by terrorists and New York City became a war zone. Tune in to the show to find out why Ruben believes the aliens that communicated with Claudio in 1993 were accurately predicting the future. Podcast #15 – Ruben Jose Uriarte
