  • 2018 Anniversaries

    By John J Ventre



    In my book, Case for UFOs, I list 260 interesting or little known UFO facts in chronological order to support the case that UFOs are real. There are many big names associated with this year’s anniversaries: Orson Wells, Aleister Crowley, Mantell, Vandenberg, Valentich, Linda Darnell and Frank Scully, Keyhoe, Filer and others. Here are 27 alleged true incidents that coincide with the new year of 2018 anniversaries. Although my book goes further back, and there is no mention of the 200 year old Frankenstein novel anniversary, we’ll start at 100 years ago:
    1. Was the 1918 Spanish flu which spread quickly and killed over 50 million people a virus from outer space brought to earth in 1917?
    2. In 1918, Aleister Crowley performed an occult ritual and conjured up a Grey named Lam. Crowley claims to have opened a portal that allowed Greys and demonic entities to enter our world. In 1942, Cowley’s students were Jack Parsons who founded JPL; L. Ron Hubbard who founded Scientology and future author Ray Bradbury. In 1952, the CIA formed the Collins Elite. The Collins Elite is a branch of the C.I.A. that investigates the paranormal and UFOs. They concluded that there are no UFOs, just paranormal activity. In 1953, The CIA started MK-ULTRA and in 1969 they formed the Operation Often project to harness demonic power. The NSA version of the Collins Elite is the JASON Society, named after the quest for the fleece or “truth”. Years later, the Greys started showing up in abduction cases but mainly in the U.S. The Greys are Fallen Angels and not ETs.

    3. On March 4, 1918, the largest U.S. naval ship ever to disappear was the USS Cyclops along with its 306 crew members. German records show no record of sinking the 19,360 ton ship and no wreckage was found in the Bermuda Triangle.
    4. 80 years ago, the most significant event in UFO history was the October 31, 1938 Panic Broadcast of the War of the Worlds by Orson Wells. Like the 1925 Scopes-Monkey trials groundwork for scientific atheism, the broadcast laid the ground work for the policy of non-disclosure of UFOs by the Defense Department today. The 1960 Brookings Institute study on the Implications of Extraterrestrial Contact referenced the Panic Broadcast in its recommendation to not disclose the truth to the public. The Panic Broadcast was repeated in Chile in 1944 and Ecuador in 1949 with similar results of panic.
    5. 70 years ago, the first fatal UFO crash occurred January 7, 1948 in Kentucky involving 25 year old Air National Guard pilot Captain Thomas Mantell. The “crash” resulted in no fire and there was no blood at the scene. His F-51 had very little damage and seemed to belly flop to the ground. Mantell’s body was quickly removed, never shown to family and buried in a lead casket. Mantell”s last radio broadcast said, "It appears to be a metallic object... tremendous in size... directly ahead and slightly above... I am trying to close for a better look."
    6. On August 5 1948, the Air Technical Intelligence Center of Project Sign concluded that UFOs were interplanetary in origin. Air Force Chief of Staff Hoyt Vandenberg ordered the report burned and then suppressed 300 UFO reports and their conclusions due to National Security reasons. When members of Project Sign refused to change their conclusions, the project was dissolved.
    7. The Aztec, NM crash of March 1948 was a coup for our military as an intact UFO made a controlled landing with nearly no damage after being shot down by our military and as many as sixteen alien bodies were recovered. This was a far more significant find than Roswell if true. The craft and bodies were taken to Hangar 18 at Wright Patterson AFB. I picked up a copy of Frank Scully’s “Behind the Flying Saucers” to add to my UFO book collection. I’ve always wondered if the Aztec New Mexico crash of 1948 was the real smoking gun since we supposedly recovered an intact craft and sixteen bodies as opposed to just fragments and debris eight months earlier in Roswell. I was unaware of the bazaar story written by Frank Scully who was a writer for Variety. Scully was a Hollywood writer with no interest in flying saucers. He received a tip from actress Linda Darnell that Oilman Silas Newton and scientist Leo GeBauer, who had invented a way to track Japanese subs during WWII, had the facts on a saucer crash. Scully knew Newton and proceeded to write the first book on the subject which spoke about small men, only there were no witnesses or physical evidence to support the claim. Canadian scientist Wilbert Smith confirmed that in a meeting with Dr Robert Sarbacher in 1950, Sarbacher said that the Frank Scully book was correct. Scully was discredited when oilman Newton was charged with fraud but in June of 2017, Ultra Top Secret documents were leaked to Midnight in the Desert radio show host Heather Wade. The documents were authenticated by Stanton Friedman.

    8. 60 years ago, on January 22 1958, CBS pulled the live TV feed on Major Keyhoe when he said “UFOs are under intelligent control”. Keyhoe refused to follow the written script given to him.
    9. In 1958, the Air Force admitted that bombers were launched against Russia when UFOs were picked up on radar.
    10. In 1958, DARPA was created with the goal of engineering advanced technologies.
    11. 50 years ago, on June 16, 1968, U.S. fighters chased and fired at multiple UFOs off the coast of Vietnam and accidently struck the Australian destroyer HMAS Hobart. General George S. Brown who commanded the fleet that struck the Hobart was quoted in 1973 as saying that “UFOs plagued us in Vietnam. We called them helicopters but the North didn’t use helicopters until the end of the war”. Brown went on to become chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Some say the UFOs redirected our missiles and gunfire back at us.
    12. A second Congressional hearing on UFOs was held on July 29, 1968.
    13. The 1968 horror movie Night of the Living Dead was based on radiation from the 1965 Kecksburg UFO crash near Pittsburgh.
    14. The Air Force taught a UFO class to its cadets from 1968-70 in a Physics 370 class (chapter 33). It stated that UFOs have been visiting earth for as long as 47,000 years and that there are three or four different species. It also gave examples of best cases and issued a warning. In 1970, the chapter was shortened from fourteen to seven pages and the “three or four species” remark was removed after the public learned of the courses existence and Project Blue Book ended and debunked UFOs.
    15. 40 years ago, on January 18, 1978, an alien was shot by an MP at Fort Dix army base in New Jersey and it managed to flee only to die on a runway at adjoining McGuire AFB. Maj. George Filer was a witness.
    16. The release of 1000’s of CIA UFO documents in 1978 exposed the fact that Major Keyhoe, Captain Ruppelt and Admiral Hillenkoetter and others were replaced on NICAP’s Board by CIA agents in the late 60’s who paid themselves salaries and expenses that bankrupted the UFO organization in 1980 that did so much in the 1960’s to offset the lies of Project Blue Book. It was also determined that there were another 257 CIA UFO documents and 18 NSA UFO documents withheld. On October 29, 1979, a federal appeals court gave the NSA a special dispensation exempting it from FOIA. CIA records were then moved to the NSA and private contractors.
    17. Oct 21, 1978, Melbourne Australia 20 year old pilot Fred Valentich radioed in that he saw a shiny elongated object with four lights and said, “It is not an aircraft, it was metallic and shown a green light on my plane”. A metallic sound was heard and his plane then disappeared and no debris field was found. The original audio tape was destroyed but was reconstructed by witnesses in the Tower for his parents. There were 15 UFO reports that day.
    18. UFO hearings were held at the U.N. on November 28, 1978 at the request of Grenada Prime Minister Eric Gairy. UN draft decision # 33/426 requested an agency be established to investigate UFOs. Three months later, a military coup in Grenada ousted Gairy and ended his Grenada UFO initiative. Was the CIA behind the coup?
    19. Ian Watson published Miracle Visitors in 1978 and was the first to describe UFO consciousness or the Oz effect of altered states. I say the Oz effect is demonic possession.
    20. 30 years ago, on March 4, 1988, a UFO landed on frozen Lake Erie and broke through the ice. A half dozen smaller triangular craft emerged and were witnessed by two coast guard officers and residents of East Lake Ohio. The coast guard filed a report but was not allowed by NASA to investigate further.
    21. In 1988, alien abduction insurance was first issued by Florida based UFO Abduction Insurance Co for $19.95. The Heaven’s Gate cult also had a $1M policy on each of its members against alien abduction, pregnancy and death.
    22. Three ARV- alien reproduction vehicle (back engineered saucer) were spotted on November 12, 1988 in a Lockheed hangar at the Norton AFB air show.
    23. 20 years ago, a UFO was shown on CNN over Baghdad on December 16, 1998 and it was hit by Iraqi military forces and captured and brought to the Qalaate-Julundi research facility. Some say this was the real reason for the Iraqi invasion in 2003.
    24. 10 years ago, the Vatican’s Chief Astronomer Reverend Gabriel Funes in 2008 reiterated Father Balducci’s 2001 comment that if there is life in space, they would be our brothers and most likely have fallen from grace just like us. In 1957, Father Connell made a similar statement. The Vatican utilizes two Observatories in Rome and Arizona. What are they looking for?
    25. 2008 started with the Stephensville UFO sightings over President Bush’s Crawford Texas ranch which was confirmed by radar. The year ended with over 200 sightings in Bucks County Pa that resulted in radar and trace evidence. In both cases, the FAA tried to discipline those that assisted MUFON investigators or block the investigation.
    26. In 2008, the U.S. Air Force decided it would no longer accept UFO reports and refers the caller to NORAD who is not subject to FOIA requests. Sneaky!
    27. In a 2008 interview with James Oberg of NASA, he said that Air Force personnel would routinely pose as NASA agents in suits on UFO investigations. Is this the source of many MIB encounters?
    28. The 2008 Peters ET Religious Crisis Survey concluded that the seven major religions would not collapse if ET visited earth.
