THE 11 CONSPIRACY THEORIES THAT JUST WON’T DIE

I was sent an email by a lady called Tina Sans, asking if I would be interested in re-posting this.

I know I haven’t done anything on here for about 2 weeks, but what with another project consuming my time and a bit of illness, there just hasn’t been the time.

I am always looking for guest contributors, so if you’re interested please email me at contactfringescientist@gmail.com

For now, follow the link above to the web page. Each of the 11 theories has a hyper-link giving you more details about each. I have a lot of interest in this sort of thing, so thanks to Tina for sending the link along to me.

THE BELL: PART TWO

The 1965 crash of a supposed UFO at Kecksburg is often referred to in UFO-circles as the “Roswell of Pennsylvania.”

A brief description from ufoevidence.org:

On December 9 1965, hundreds of witnesses in southern Canada, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania observed a UFO crash from the sky. In March 1966, scientist and UFO investigator Ivan Sanderson compiled an account from various eye witness stories.

The object took six minutes to pass the observed trajectory, from which Sanderson calculated a speed of 1,600 km/h, which, if accurate, would rule out a meteor. Several pilots spoke of being buffeted by shock waves as the thing passed them. There were also stories of a sonic boom and vibrations felt on the ground. The smoke trail was so intense that it remained visible for up to twenty minutes. During the final few miles of its flight the object seemed to change course.

After the impact the police set off the forest. They were subsequently chased away by the military. A few hours later the military team told them they had found nothing.

In January 1980 UFO investigator Clark McClelland interviewed the assistant fire chief of Kecksburg, James Mayes, and Melvin Reese, another fireman. They reported that their team had come within sixty meters of the object. They had seen an object on the ground that had smashed its way through the trees. Mayes explained how the military had cordoned off the woods and had established a temporary base, complete with telecom link. Fire chief Robert Bitner later confirmed this story. He also said had seen an object that was 1.8m high, 2m wide and some 5m long, clearly not an aircraft. It was resting at an angle on the ground as if it had impacted nearly horizontally. Another fire officer, ‘Pete’, stated he had seen a ring of bumpers around it into which were described some pictorial symbols. Being of Polish decent he could read Russian and stated that they were not Russian.

Researcher Ray Boeche file a Freedom of Information request for more data on the incident. In 1985 30 pages of data were procured. It was insignificant information, except for a memo that said a three man team had been dispatched to the site to pick up an object. The final conclusion of the file was that the UFO was a meteor.

A theory has been proposed that the object was a crashed Russian satellite (Cosmos 96). However, NASA has released data that say that Cosmos 96 reentered Earth’s orbit on December 9, 3.15 a.m. The crash took place 13 hours later.

After the US TV series Unsolved Mysteries had reported the case two new witnesses came forward. One was a USAF officer at Lockbourne AFB (near Columbus, Ohio). In the early hours of December 10, a truck arrived by the little used back gate of the base and he was ordered to patrol it. It was a flat-bed with a large tarpaulin on the surface covering a conical object. He was told to shoot anyone who tried to get too close. He was advised the truck was bound for Wright Patterson AFB, which is the reputed home of other crashed saucers.

The other witness was a building contractor who was asked two days later to take a load of 6,500 special bricks to a hangar inside Wright Patterson. When he sneaked a look inside the hangar he saw a bell-shaped device, some 4m. high sitting there. Several men wearing white anti-radiation style suits were inspecting the object. After he had been escorted out he was told that he had just seen an object that would become common knowledge in 20 years time.

The object was a bell-shape. Many have taken this as a direct link to the myth surround die glocke, the mythical Nazi experiment (Read Part One of this article HERE)

From abovetopsecret.com, which by the way provides a brilliant and in-depth article on the incident, the bell is described by one witness as “a bronze colored, acorn shaped, and 12 by 25 feet in size object with a raised “blunt” end that had strange markings on it.” When you look at depictions of what the ‘acorn’ looked like, it is easy to conclude that there must be a link of some sort with that and the bell shaped device the Nazi’s were supposedly experimenting with twenty years previous.

You can read the abovetopsecret article HERE

To me, what makes the Kecksburg incident seem like such a genuine cover-up, is what happened to local reporter John Murphy. Go HERE to learn about the role Murphy had to play in the Kecksburg incident.

How strange that after being silenced regarding the crash, or whatever it was, he was killed in a hit and run? Was he targeted by government agents after being deemed a liability?

The Kecksburg doesn’t get as much exposure in the press as Roswell, but it is just as mysterious.

See the doc below:

Hopefully these two posts have allowed you to learn a little bit about the mystery surrounding die glocke, and the Kecksburg UFO crash. Whilst there’s nothing new I can write about these, I can link you to some great articles that already been written about them, which is what I’ve done.

Let me know your thoughts below. What do you think about die glocke? What do you think about Kecksburg? Is there a link between the two?

THE BELL: PART ONE

The Bell, or Die Glocke in German, is a kind of world war two myth – one of the wunderwaffe, or wonder weapons, that the Nazi’s developed in secret, rumoured to have superweapon qualities. These wunderwaffe included plans for Nazi ballistic missile submarines, turbo jet dive bombers, sub-orbital antipodal bombers, experiments with nuclear energy, superguns, the ‘Sun Gun’ – a parabolic mirror placed in orbit, used to focus sunlight onto locations on Earth’s surface, even the V2 rocket.

Tested in an underground facility, the bell is rumoured to have been many things; an anti-gravity experiment, a piece of a crashed UFO… even a type of time-travel device. Some accounts speak of the bell creating a window into the past. Most sources state that the bell was indeed an anti-gravity experiment.

From the wikipedia description of the bell:

Claims about the existence of Die Glocke originated in the works of Igor Witkowski. His 2000 Polish language book Prawda O Wunderwaffe (The Truth About The Wonder Weapon, reprinted in German as Die Wahrheit über die Wunderwaffe), refers to it as “The Nazi-Bell”. Witkowski wrote that he first discovered the existence of Die Glocke by reading transcripts from an interrogation of former Nazi SS Officer Jakob Sporrenberg. According to Witkowski, he was shown the supposedly classified transcripts in August 1997 by an unnamed Polish intelligence contact who claimed to have access to Polish government documents regarding Nazi secret weapons. Witkowski maintains that he was only allowed to transcribe the documents and was not allowed to make any copies. Although no evidence of the veracity of Witkowski’s claims have been produced, they reached a wider audience when they were retold by British author Nick Cook, who added his own speculations to Witkowski’s claims in The Hunt for Zero Point.

Allegedly an experiment carried out by Third Reich scientists working for the SS in a German facility known as Der Riese (“The Giant”) near the Wenceslaus mine and close to the Czech border, Die Glocke is described as being a device “made out of a hard, heavy metal” approximately 9 feet wide and 12 to 15 feet high having a shape similar to that of a large bell. According to Cook, this device ostensibly contained two counter-rotating cylinders which would be “filled with a mercury-like substance, violet in color. This metallic liquid was code-named “Xerum 525”” and was otherwise cautiously “stored in a tall thin thermos flask a meter high encased in lead”. Additional substances said to be employed in the experiments, referred to as Leichtmetall (light metal), “included thorium and beryllium peroxides”. Cook describes Die Glocke as emitting strong radiation when activated, an effect that supposedly lead to the death of several unnamed scientists and various plant & animal test subjects. Based upon certain external indications, Witkowski speculates that the ruins of a metal framework in the vicinity of the Wenceslas mine (aesthetically dubbed “The Henge”) may have once served as test rig for an experiment in “anti-gravity propulsion” generated with Die Glocke; others, however, dismiss the derelict structure as simply being a conventional industrial cooling tower.

Witkowski’s claims along with Cook’s speculations prompted further conjecture about the device from American fringe science authors such as Joseph P. Farrell, Jim Marrs, and Henry Stevens. Farrell claims that the device was considered so important to the Nazis that they killed 60 scientists that worked on the project and buried them in a mass grave. In his book, Hitler’s Suppressed and Still-Secret Weapons, Science and Technology (2007), Stevens speculates that Die Glocke contained red mercury and describes stories alleging that a concave mirror on top of the device provided the ability to see “images from the past” during its operation. Witkowski speculated that Die Glocke ended up in a “Nazi-friendly South American country”. Cook speculated that it was moved to the United States as part of a deal made with SS General Hans Kammler.

According to Patrick Kiger writing in National Geographic, Die Glocke has become a “popular subject of speculation” and a following similar to science fiction fandom exists around it and other alleged Nazi “miracle weapons” of Wunderwaffen.

The consensus does seem to be that the bell was a genuine Nazi experiment into anti-gravity, (although whether the technology originated from crashed extra-terrestrial craft is anyone’s guess) and that after the war the technology was picked-up by scientists in the US – which in itself has far-reaching ramifications. If that is the course of events, then could all of the UFO sightings of the last century in fact be sightings of top secret anti-gravity aircraft? This is not a new question. Indeed it goes hand in hand with the UFO phenomenon… but perhaps die glocke was the very beginnings of it.

Below is a pretty good documentary on die glocke, and related Nazi experiments and tech. At the very end of this post there is also an embedded video of an interview conducted with Igor Witowski, including footage of the ‘water-tower’, said to house either the bell itself, or a large cooling tank used in its experimentation.

Part Two of this article will be posted in a day or so, and will be concerned with what happened in Kecksburg in 1965…

MJ-12


Another pointer to a great article. Over at ufoencounters.co.uk there is a page concerning the Majestic 12 – the top secret group of 12 men tasked with dealing with the UFO issue following the Incident at Roswell.

As these sites point out, there is evidence there to say that there is, or was, an organisation called Majestic 12. And there are the documents that seem to show references not only to MJ-12 but also to UFO’s.

Have a read and see what you think. I think it is entirely plausible that there is an organisation covering-up frequent visits by UFO’s, and our own possession of extraterrestrial materials. But how do you prove it…?

There is a very in-depth article relating to the Majestic 12 and their supposed dealings with the ET’s visiting Earth written by John Lear which you can read HERE

WHERE ART THOU, ELVIS?

“MY GOD, I HOPE THEY BRING BACK ELVIS!” – Independence Day

Elvis Presley died in 1977. If Elvis were alive today, he would be about 76 years old; there are many singers, actors, directors, etc, older than that who are still working, so it is feasible to say that Elvis would still be producing material. Whilst it is one thing to ask yourself ‘What might Elvis have produced if he were still alive? What might he have looked like?” it is quite another to ponder “Could he still be alive?” But some do.

The arguments for Elvis still being alive and in hiding range from the plausible (see below) to the downright bizarre – claims that he resides on the moon, for instance. Who hasn’t heard that one?

The website webspawner has a great page on Elvis which you can visit by clicking HERE I have used it for some of this article as it makes a good argument for some of the theories for how and why he could have made himself disappear.

Apparently Elvis acted strangely just before his death.
From webspawner.com:

Two hours after Elvis’s death was announced publicly, a man who reportedly looked remarkably like Elvis purchased a ticket for Buenos Aeries, paid in cash, and used the name John Burrows: the same name Elvis had used as an alias several times before.

Elvis had a few books that were considered to be his most prized possessions. He had a bible, several pharmaceutical books, books on death, and most importantly Chiro’s Book of Numbers and The Autobiography of Yogi which I will explain more about later. After Elvis’s death was announced, these books disappeared and were never recovered.

In the weeks preceding his alleged death, Elvis’s actions were not those of a man who was about to embark on an extensive US tour. He ordered no new suits despite having gained 50 pounds since his last tour, and he bid “adios” at his last show in Hawaii. He had never done this before. Adios, like the French adieu, has the significance of being a final good-bye as opposed to an “I’ll be seeing you on my next tour” kind of good-bye.

Others were intrigued by the King’s decision to sign a lucrative TV deal with NBC that would cover the tour. It was unprecedented for a network to pay such a large amount up front, in cash, for such a deal. Many wonder why Elvis even agreed to the deal since his vanity discouraged him from making public appearances due to his obesity.
RCA showed uncanny (and unbelievable) foresight by mass producing millions of Elvis’s current and previous recordings and merchandise. This is standard practice for an act that is about to go on tour, but the numbers in this case were beyond reasonable expectations. The announcement of Elvis’s death caused record sales to skyrocket.
Elvis did other unusual things that created suspicion. First, he fired several employees that he had relied upon for a long time. Also, two days before his alleged death, Elvis telephoned a friend of his named Miss Foster. He told her that he wasn’t planning on going on the upcoming tour. She asked him if he had canceled it, and he said that he had not. When she asked if he was ill, he said that he was fine, and that she should not ask any more questions or tell anyone anything, and that she should not believe anything she read. He told her that his troubles would all soon be over, and that he would call her in a few weeks.

The author of Elvis Where Are You? writes that Miss Foster took a polygraph test regarding this story, and that she was not lying.
The day after Elvis’s alleged death, a woman named Lucy De Barbon, a former lover of Elvis, received a single rose in the mail. The card indicated that the flower was from “El Lancelot.” This had been her pet name for Elvis, and it was a name that no one else knew. Flowers can’t be sent from beyond the grave. This was Elvis’s way of letting her know that he was not dead, even though he didn’t want to be found.

There is a theory that the body shown in pictures of him in the coffin was actually a wax replica of him.
From webspawner.com:

This argument is very convincing when the facts are considered. Elvis’s coffin required several pall bearers because it weighed 900 pounds. How did the Presley family get a 900 pound, custom made coffin ready for a funeral that was held on the day after his death? It takes a lot of time to build such an elaborate coffin.

And why have the funeral so quickly? Some speculate that the immediacy was intended to make it as difficult as possible for the people who were Elvis’s biggest fans (heads of fan clubs, etc.) to attend the proceedings. It could be a concern that they might recognize the flaws in the wax replica.

Elvis was an 8th degree black belt whose hands were rough with calluses, yet the body in the coffin had hands that were soft and pudgy. The body in the coffin had a pug nose and arched eyebrows (unlike Elvis) and most importantly, one of the sideburns on the “corpse” was loose and falling off. A hairdresser later reported gluing the sideburn back on the body.

Why would Elvis have faked his own death?
From webspawner.com:

Elvis had many reasons to fake his death. Elvis’s life was in danger. He had recently lost $10,000,000 in an airplane/real estate deal with a California based organization called the “Fraternity” that had links to the Mafia. It is speculated that he corroborated with the government to expose the organized crime ring in exchange for protection – perhaps in the form of a new life and identity compliments of the witness relocation program.

In addition, Elvis was a prisoner of his own fame. He had many other reasons to leave his life behind. Because of his incredible popularity, he was the recipient of several death threats, and he was concerned about the safety of his wife and daughter. Sometimes when he wanted to leave Graceland, he would send out look-alikes to distract would be followers. Elvis was also known to ride in the trunk of someone else’s car to avoid detection. Once, when he fell ill in Las Vegas, he couldn’t get proper medical attention because the hospital was overwhelmed by fans.

At the time of his alleged death, Elvis was nearing the end of his career. He was 42, his hair was graying, he was grossly overweight, and his voice was starting to weaken. He was going down hill, and he was too proud to go out with a whimper. He would never want his fans to see him in such an unhealthy condition.

Elvis had shown a fascination with death on several occasions. In the days leading up to his alleged death he was reported to have visited funeral homes at odd hours of the night with close friends. Was he doing research? Elvis once faked his death by setting up an elaborate shooting in which a would be killer fired blanks at Elvis who had a blood pack which he discharged. It was Elvis’s intention to see how the people closest to him would react to his death. Perhaps what he learned convinced him to do it for real.

Finally, one of Elvis’ favorite books is the spiritual Autobiography of Yogi. One of the central themes of this book is the relinquishing of one’s wealth and earthly possessions to achieve spiritual oneness. Elvis could do this, as well as address his other concerns of sanity and safety by faking his death and living in exile.

There is another theory that Elvis continued to perform, but under the alias of Jimmy ‘Orion’ Ellis, although I don’t believe this for two reasons. Firstly, why leave your old life behind and go straight back into performing publicly? And secondly, Jimmy Ellis does not look anything like Elvis Presley. Simple as that.

However what we do know is that the circumstances around his autopsy, and how quickly he was buried are quite suspicious. Further, his life insurance was never collected. Why?
Could Elvis be out there somewhere, like Kate Bush sang “living like a happy man”?

It’s conceivable to believe that he could have staged his death in order to retreat into obscurity although I doubt very much that he’s living on the moon. But perhaps somewhere in American suburbia there is an old man living a nice quiet life – a very private existence – who remembers all those years ago when he used to be the King of Rock and Roll…

One theory is that he was recruited by President Nixon in the war against drugs, as reported http://www.elvis-is-alive.com/

PROJECT MANNEQUIN

I’ve come across a slightly paranoid yet fantastic site, called educate-yourself.org which details all manner of conspiracy’s. There’s plenty on there to have a look at and I recommend giving it a ten minutes of your time.

Whilst you might think most of it is a bit too much like Mulder’s ravings in X-Files, I found it very interesting and it fed that part of me that likes to engage with a good conspiracy.

One of the pages that stood out to me was the page dealing with Project Mannequin.

It is about a man called James Casbolt who was brain-washed since childhood and who has slowly started to recover his memories of his experiences.

An excerpt:

People simply don’t understand just how technologically advanced the NWO is compared to the civilian sector. We aren’t talking about fifty years ahead, we’re talking about one thousand years ahead. Cloning, total mind control, invisibility, anti-gravity, free energy, age regression, soul transfers, extended life spans, time travel, space portals, ability to cure any disease, time machines, etc. are already in the hands of the NWO and their military lap dogs. We are living in a make-believe world of pretend democracy while being lied to by pretend representatives, pretend media, and pretend leaders, of which a large percentage are working on behalf of the NWO to destroy this country and usher in the satanic One World government.

You can go straight to the page HERE

The topics covered on the site range from Cancer, the New World Order, Water Supply Sabotage and Homeography.

Whatever you think of what is said on the site, I think it’s worth a read. Conspiracy theorists are perceived as paranoid scare-mongers, but I think that actually they just have an opinion on something, a certain outlook that they want to share. They want someone out there to say “You know, you have a point there.” I think that most of them just want you to think about what they’re saying.

Go there, by clicking HERE and have a look about. I did. I may not have bought into the concept of the human race being ruled by alien overlords, but the site made me think at the very least.
