Another Year in Review 

 

Space capn - another year in review
Wombo – The Investigation App of the Year

It was a momentous year for this site since we moved from Google, rewrote and added several new articles before launching our blog.  But now it’s time to take the traditional look back and highlight the best of 2021. Read below to find out who won the coveted Mark Richards award.

Although much of the news seemed to be taken up with whatever Lue is up to, the recent bill to study UAPs, or the efforts to raise John Kennedy Jr. and bring him to Dallas, there were other interesting developments that deserve recognition. Our own list included some who are particularly important to this site, in reverse order:

5.  The Rise and Fall of Añjali

If it had not been for Añjali, the Kennedy story might have won honors for the Best Nonevent of the Year. Añjali had a style of her own, beginning with her press conference to announce an expedition to a tunnel in the Mojave to meet alien beings by the end of 2021. This catapulted her to fame as she appeared on several podcasts and captured the hearts of those who long for the days when space aliens wanted world peace and to help humanity transcend to higher levels.

Añjali press conference - another year in reviewThe story had a dramatic undertone since Añjali made clear that the “save the humans” faction on the galactic Council had lost the majority and if we did not transcend soon we were destined for the planet Orion. If you questioned her too hard she was likely to block you —apparently the higher beings were sensitive to criticism.

In the spirit of democracy, Añjali added a UFOTwitter representative to the team that she was going to take to the desert. She began a poll to determine who was going. The late Stanton Freeman had to decline his spot in the poll for obvious reasons.

Then things got even more interesting. People began to track down Wayne, who built the desert tunnel. Some tried to contact him and reportedly were told that he knew nothing about an expedition. Another person made up evidence about their investigation to try to get Añjali to admit her story was made up. Añjali maintained that people had gotten the wrong Wayne. If my conclusion about him is correct, I am disappointed that his land is not truly in the Mojave.   

In any event, Wayne thwarted the higher beings and brought their credibility into question by refusing permission for an expedition into his tunnel. Although Añjali “liked” my Twitter suggestion to meet with the aliens at Giant Rock or the Integraton, the beings apparently were insistent that it was all or nothing. It turned out to be nothing as Añjali canceled her plans to meet with the Council and announced that the end of the world is scheduled for 2027.

I suspect that Añjali will continue to speak for the aliens as a quasi-spiritual leader. Perhaps she should team up with David Wilcox and take the Ascension – Transcendence show on the road. But there are issues to resolve. After the aliens assured us that the time had come for the Great Reveal in the tunnel, it’s apparent that they don’t know more than anyone else.

To be fair, the Council was not the only one to suffer a setback. The competing Federation’s plans to initiate first contact were postponed because humanity was not yet ready — it’s hard to disagree with that. The sheer scope of Añjali’s flameout, however, makes her nonevent stand out as she even ended up losing the newcomer award. The mass migration to Orion in 2027 might qualify for a future nonevent but there may be other things to think about by then.

4.  The Prophecies of Sean David Morton 

Sean Morton was a shoo-in for the Comeback of the Year. Morton has had his share of problems. Although he has called himself “America’s Prophet” he has demonstrated a singular inability to realize the outcome of his actions. Through it all, however, he persevered.  

In 2003, Sean sued the UFO Watchdog for libel after they exposed his many lies — he lost and was ordered to pay attorney’s fees. Morton was also surprised when the Securities and Exchange Commission brought a civil case against him for fraud. In 2013, the judge ordered him to pay $11.5 million. In 2016, he was found guilty in criminal court for 51 counts of IRS fraud. Morton failed to appear for sentencing and went on the lam but was eventually taken into custody.  He was sentenced to six years in prison with a $480,322 restitution fine.

Morton was released in January 2021 but soon returned to prison. He was finally released on August 27, 2021. 

Sean - another year in review - adventures of captain mark richardsIn an interview with Kerry Cassidy following his release, Morton stated that he had received a prophecy that he would face prison and profound hardship. He would then emerge and give light to the world while marshaling the forces of good — acquiring fabulous wealth in the process. He predicted that a collision of two supernovas on June 1, 2022, will usher in a period of financial collapse and that eventually humanity would have to fight against the AI.  

If nothing else Sean has been resilient. He was a guide at Area 51. When that was no longer as profitable he became a prophet. Somewhere along the way he acquired the title of “doctor.” Immediately before his arrest he was lecturing to sovereign citizens as a self-proclaimed Constitutional Law scholar. It did not take long for Sean to emerge from prison and resume where he left off, seemingly without skipping a beat. 

Presumably he could pay off his fines when he comes into his fabulous wealth but that remains to be seen. We are not even certain he will pay back people like Kerry who lost money in his schemes. For now his return is yet another comeback by America’s Favorite Fraudster.™

3.  The Death of Guru Jagat and the Rise of Pastel QAnon

When Katie Griggs (Guru Jagat) died in August 2021, she had been in the vanguard of a movement that combined new age yoga and self help with the politics of QAnon. She was friends with Kerry Cassidy and spoke about reptilians in language that might have been taken from David Icke. That kind of thinking has been dubbed Pastel QAnon  — a mixture of anti-vaxx, self care, and conspiracy thinking — and its importance has not diminished in the wake of Griggs’s death.  She won a posthumous Golden Trump Award over a concerted effort by Richard Dolan and Cassidy herself.

As the pandemic spread, Griggs said that “the reason why we’re being told to stay home, that we’re actually in some kind of alien war.”  Within a cultish practice it can be difficult to challenge such statements. It is important to note, however, that there are other voices that relate their practices to larger concerns for peace, the environment, and justice. That may ultimately be a more important development.

2. Disclosure Remains on Hold

Disclosure - another year in reviewDisclosure is a perennial favorite and it never fails to disappoint. This year a bookie lowered the odds of alien contact from 200/1 to 20/1.  But sometimes you need a scorecard to keep track of the players. It was also the year that Steven Greer’s Disclosure Project warned against Lue Elizando and false disclosure. As we have written, if disclosure does not happen on your terms, it isn’t disclosure.

The Day Before Disclosure Award always is interesting. Danny Sheehan deserves an honorable mention for his efforts to reinvent himself within the UFO community after the Christic Institute’s lawsuit to expose the CIA and Iran-Contra spectacularly fell apart. At last report he was serving as Lue’s counsel. Richard Dolan already claimed a lifetime achievement honor so he was not eligible. This year, then, by acclaim the winner is Leslie Kean with the number two spot on our list.

Kean’s embrace of UFOs in the New York Times and other media helped reclaim UFOS as something to be studied.  It did not matter that her resume included mistaking a fly for alien craft, accepting the dubious Rendlesham story and championing the paranormal. There is a direct line from the media explosion to Congress establishing yet another office to investigate the issue. Disclosure is now the topic of the day,

The field is still open for next year.  If you are disappointed that Añjali did not lead an expedition you can pay Greer at minimum $2500 for his expedition to get the latest disclosure updates and learn how to contact ET civilizations. Such things suggest that disclosure is right around the corner . . . if not next year, then the year after that.  

1.  The Cabal is Defeated

The year is not even over and we came upon this stunning news from Michael Salla which wins the Yearly News of the Solar System Award.  

We had to update this page to add a new award.  I am not certain who is a member of the Cabal and if it is different than the Bilderbergs. No comment is necessary as this is a clear winner.  

Rejoice!  Someone should organize a parade.

 

Another year in review - the cabal loses

 

 


The Captain Mark Richards Award

Mark richards 1977This award is based upon our favorite life prisoner, the Story of Captain Mark Richards and the Kerry Cassidy Interviews with him. As such it may be unfair to recognize Kerry Cassidy, but no one tries harder than her. In the past year, she called Mark a “National Treasure,” cited his warnings about AI, and bemoaned that Mark was not given compassionate release because he would then bring amazing disclosure. Mark is not eligible for compassionate release but it did not deter her from complaining.

Since Mark is one of her most important whistleblowers, Kerry’s constant efforts to enlighten us should also be noted. This year, reliable sources told her that the Chinese communists had crossed the northern border to occupy a camp in Michigan. Similarly, her sources told us the southern borders were under attack. Juan O Savin was her favorite choice for being JFK Jr, and despite Juan’s consistent failures she remained loyal to him. She eventually confirmed that there are two Juans, just as she had suspected, so we should not get confused if one of them does not play out.

This site wondered if Mark Richards would emerge as a voice of reason, as Kerry went ever deeper into QAnon and its related branches. Before Kerry declared that the Trumps were her favorite people, Mark had warned that Donald was controlled by aliens and Melania was their communication device. Perhaps Kerry has gone too far for even Mark to fully accept – we learned that Mark is not a Trump supporter and affirms that JFK Jr. is no longer alive. Still, Kerry continued to respect him — it is the kind of loyalty that deserves to be rewarded with the present honor. 

Kerry ended the year by stating that the vaccinations will create trans-humans and that we should prepare for an android invasion. Who can compete with that?

The trap of disclosure - end ufo secrecy

The Trap of Disclosure 

The trap of disclosureIt is a popular topic in Ufology, but ultimately the trap of disclosure makes it hollow.

Captain Mark Richards states that disclosure has been delayed but that many of the alien races want it so they can openly do business.  

Steven Greer, Richard Dolan, and others have made a living speculating about it or offering its promise.

NICAP called for disclosure in the 1950s. Citizen Committees have offered their view on disclosure. Anjali offers the hope for the ultimate disclosure.    

Every year is said to be the year of alien disclosure. Yet, what is being on contemplated?  With all those advocating for disclosure, the answer should be easy but term is often used as a generic cover without regard to its implications. 

Disclosure first of all asserts that there is something to disclose.  Perhaps that is a given. If there is nothing to disclose the UFO industry would be out of business. There would be no need to attend conferences, listen to podcasts, pay for webinars, or buy books.  

Yet, how do we know if disclosure has taken place?  The Air Force’s release of a report about Roswell, identifying the crash as a balloon, did nothing to assure believers. The Preliminary Assessment on Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon did not resolve anything. Some countries have opened their UFO files, but the demand is always for more. 

The trap of disclosure - end ufo secrecyAt its most basic level, disclosure will only happen when information is released that confirms existing theory or bias. People will not accept disclosure that contradicts what they want disclosed.  If something is denied, they will assume that there must be a continued coverup. 

The Day After Disclosure is easy to imagine. Ratter than a parade it would be marked by infighting and denial.

Proponents of the Secret Space Program will want to confirm that there are bases on the moon and Mars – or battles against aliens. As Corey Goode stated, Mark Richards would want to be acknowledged as a captain and released from prison.

Roswell enthusiasts would demand disclosure documenting a saucer crash and retrieval. Area 51 researchers might not be satisfied unless there was an unguided tour and they saw the plans to develop our own technology based on element 115. If the government acknowledges the grays, others would want to know about the mantids or nordics.  Anything short of the holy grail of what pundits expect would be dismissed as incomplete disclosure.

Ultimately, disclosure is about meeting the aliens, but even then people would be debating what is the hidden alien agenda and what they are hiding. 

Related to this is that people would ask what else there is to disclose and advance new speculation about that. There would be new conferences to explain what was revealed and what might still be open to speculation. Some would assert that disclosure was simply a device to lull us into a false sense of security. We already see that kind of debate.

If nuts and bolts are offered, others would want psychic material. Disclosure of aliens in this sector of the galaxy would lead others to demand information about time travel, alternate universes and dimensions, or other similar topics. Some would not believe any disclosure that does not involve raising your personal frequencies.

The industry would continue – the only difference might be if there are actual aliens to give a seminar. Would some disclosure advocates complain about competition?

Ultimately, there is no such thing as disclosure. People have too much invested in offering inside information, complaining about secrecy or advocating for disclosure to be satisfied by whatever is revealed. The UFO Industrial Complex has grown way beyond it all.

 

A more philosophical approach by Douglas Giles asks What If There’s Nothing To Disclosure?

Conspiracy Culture

 

“What we need to do as science educators, journalists and historians is to educate the public — not necessarily on the specifics of each and every case but on the rules of evidence, the burden of proof and how experts come to an understanding of what something is or what it could be. That’s a difficult task. It’s a lot easier to say, “Could be aliens,” or “Maybe not aliens,” than to say, “There are a range of possibilities. Some are more likely than others.”

– Jason Colavito, Salon, 6-21-2021


Going Further adds a link to an article in the New Republic by Jason Colavito exploring the connection with UFOs and right wing conspiracies. Although Colavito does not mention the cast of characters that are discussed here, it is important to understand the rise of this movement.  

Conspiracy culture personified - behold a pale horse blog
Cover – Behold a Pale Horse

Right wing conspiracy and UFO culture have never been entirely separate. The far right ideas of William Cooper (Behold a Pale Horse) and the early Patriot movement were embraced by many in the UFO world and are still influential — although Cooper eventually rejected the UFO portion of his ideas. That connection has grown through a common idea that there is a secret body of knowledge that explains how the world really works, which is being hidden from the public.  

The idea of a secret group has long been part of the basic stable of the UFO conspiracy culture. NICAP grew out of the belief that the military had secret knowledge. From the far end of the scale, George Adamski promoted the idea of a silence group that kept the secrets of alien contact hidden from the public. Today, Richard Dolan and others promote the idea of a secret breakaway civilization. Meanwhile, disclosure advocates offer the hope that soon everything will be revealed.  

It is not too far of a stretch to move from a UFO conspiracy to the idea that a secret cabal could have political or economic control. This has become even more problematic as consistently darker UFO conspiracies push the boundaries further. It is one reason why belief in UFOs is subject to manipulation. (See Adam Gorightly, Saucers, Spooks, and Kooks: UFO Disinformation in the Age of Aquarius.)

For some, the conspiracy itself is what is important. Once that path is taken, it is only a small leap to embrace any number of things. As Tucker Carlson said in 2016, in light of Trump’s improbable success could other things be true?  In light of his defeat, the improbable has taken on new meaning for many. There are those like Carlson or Juan Savin who weave even more tales to move their followers even further to the right

Kerry Cassidy and Project Camelot have long echoed the belief that “insiders” can explain what happening in the world and virtually every event is a false flag. This led her to Mark Richards. This also led her deeper into the world of Q and she has gone far beyond the earlier interviews with Captain Mark Richards to embrace Trump, Melania, and Savin –  a belief in the restoration of the Trump dynasty because they could not have been wrong about it from the beginning.

We may return to that topic in future articles, but Trump is a strange pick if you are against the either New World Order or the vaccine. Trump has claimed credit for the vaccine being developed under Operation Warp Speed and he promoted a world order based solely upon his profits and power. So what does Kerry and the conspiracy culture see in him?
