Spread the Word! from Robert Hastings

(Thanks to Alfred Lehmberg and his alienviews Yahoo group, where I found this post)

Spread the Word!

By Robert Hastings
In the months following the July 2008 publication of my book, UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, I have posted online a number of excerpts from it.

The book contains dozens of interviews with former or retired U.S. Air Force personnel who were involved in highly-classified, UFO-related incidents at various nuclear weapons sites, including missile launch facilities, nukes storage areas, and bomb/missile test sites during the Cold War era. In some cases, the missiles’ functionality was reportedly compromised immediately after the UFOs hovered over them.

Because I am an American, UFOs and Nukes is written in English. Over time, persons from various countries have emailed me and asked for my permission to translate the posted excerpts into their own languages. I have readily and gladly complied with these requests. Other individuals or organizations have translated the same passages and posted them online without first asking my permission. While I would have preferred a formal request beforehand, as long as those translations are entirely accurate, then I have no objection to their appearance on the Internet.

The intention of this open message is to grant permission to anyone wishing to translate the already-posted excerpts from my book, into any language, for the purpose of posting them on the Internet. I would, however, greatly appreciate being notified of each and any translation.


NOTE: I AM NOT GRANTING PERMISSION TO TRANSLATE MY ENTIRE BOOK, ONLY THOSE EXCERPTS WHICH I MYSELF HAVE ALREADY POSTED ONLINE.

The excerpts in question appear below, together with their URL:

“Beams of Light” http://www.theufochronicles.com/2008/11/beams-of-light-excerpt-from-ufos-and.html


“Launch in Progress!” http://www.theufochronicles.com/2008/07/launch-in-progress.html


“Like a Diamond in the Sky” http://www.eye2thesky.net/Hastings-Diamond_In_the_Sky.html


“Reporter Duped by UFO Debunkers” http://ufomagazine.squarespace.com/guest-blog/2008/8/27/reporter-duped-by-ufo-debunkers.html



“UFO Sightings at ICBM Sites and Nuclear Weapons Storage Areas” http://www.nicap.org/babylon/missile_incidents.htm



Given the obvious importance of this long-suppressed information about the UFO-Nukes Connection, I believe that it should be disseminated worldwide. To that end, I urge the translation of my research material into as many languages as possible. I ask only that the original English text be faithfully represented and that the following copyright notice appear with any such translation:

I am available for interviews by the media in any country. My website is ufohastings.com and my email address is hastings444@.... If I do not reply in a timely fashion, please email me again—and again. Since the publication of my book, I have had some rather suspicious difficulties following-up with journalists worldwide who have expressed interest in writing about my research. While I admittedly have no proof of official tampering, one might speculate that these communications are being disrupted by some agency attempting to suppress the dissemination of my material. If this is indeed the case, don’t let Big Brother win! Keep writing to me until I respond. I am in touch with many other UFO researchers around the world. Write to them, if necessary, and they will forward messages to me.



In summary, nearly 100 U.S. Air Force veterans now openly state that UFOs have been monitoring and sometimes interfering with our nuclear weapons systems. The citizens of every country on Earth have a right to know the truth about these important developments. Spread the word!

Grey Matters: Esoterica and Social Networking Sites

Lesley Gunter (Beyond the Dial, The Debris Field, etc.) has a good article up at Binnall of America for her Grey Matters column: Esoterica and Social Networking Sites Like Lesley, I enjoy Facebook, much more than I thought I would. I found it hard to figure it out at first, still do sometimes, but it's more personal and fun, silly, things to do on it. I also, like Lesley, thought a couple of years ago paranormal networking sites were a good idea, but they seem to have gone under pretty quickly. One thing I like on Facebook are all the environmental and political causes that you can join up with and get the message out, and donate things to.

Explains All Reticence

UFOs are everything! From ancient times they wail and sing. Through the years they've shown themselves, we've pictures, film we've stacked on shelves. Anecdotes abound in waves, from Presidents without disgrace, to airline captains coming clean — these craft are NOT a specious dream!


Indeed! Alfred does it again; I really liked this one. For more visit the UFO Magazine blog, The Green Room, and read the rest of Alfred's post.

It's astounding, simply astounding, that there are still those who deny the fact of UFOs. Worse, are the ones who acknowledge the reality of UFOs, but play disingenuous head games around the fact. Those pathological skeptics who shrug and say "UFOs, lights in the sky, so what?" or yawn after hearing a witness relate an incredible sighting, mumbling something about classified military craft. . .

SDI #465 Twenty Questions


SDI #465 Twenty Questions


20 Questions _especially_ well addressed by Dave Furlotte, Stuart Miller, Chris Rutkowski... as chopped and channeled by the paranormal stylings of Errol Bruce-Knapp in a manner as reasoned as it is reasonable and as reasoning as it is... raison d'ĂȘtre...
.
1. How does one "prove" the existence of something where no proof is accepted?
.
2. How much has humanity grown with its technology, and how much has it _matured_?
.
3. Why have our plethora of media recording devises not settled the UFO issue?
.
4. Can our technology be depended upon to faithfully determine fact from fiction? Does that determination change the thing determined in the same fashion an electron is changed as a result of mere observation re the state of same?
.
5. How much of George Orwell's _1984_ has actually been realized?
.
6. How can the existence of UFOs be validated given the existence of too _much_ evidence of UFOs, _bogus_ evidence effortlessly invalided but casting aspersions on the rest?
.
7. Is there a mechanism employed to invalidate UFOs in the manner just described?
.
8. Is the planet Venus a viable candidate for the UFO/police helicopter (crew of three) incident over Birmingham in England last month?
.
9. Do radio controlled model airplanes fly circles around perplexed police helicopters as Nick Pope takes pains to walk the "safe path"... "worked up" even as his cautious interests are "justifiably" piqued?
.
10. Where is the multi-spectrum video of same suggested in use by Errol and Stuart?
.
11. Who is the "eagle-eye UFO sleuth" breaking the story out from staid official channels?
.
12. Is there a sea change to the approach and manner of world ufological reportage, in general, lately?
.
13. _Does_ a "professionally trained" observer remotely trump an untrained one? Will they _both_ make the same kind of "hysterical mistakes"?
.
14. Can it be possible to be "sick" of the plight of the "UFO Hacker," Gary McKinnon ? Is McKinnon a man who should be rewarded for revealing gross security lapses in government computers as regards a security infrastructure and apparatus _allegedly_ overhauled and hardened at the cost of billions in the wake of 9/11? Is McKinnon _persecuted_ instead by the threat of decades in prison on the whim of the entirely discredited Alberto Gonzalez and George W. Bush? Sick, is it remotely appropriate to _say_ so?
.
15. Has Great Britain deferred entirely to a "big brother" touting that they are "only here to help" with regard to that threat of terrorism?
.
16. What is Kevin Spacey doing now and how does it touch upon the subject of UFOs and ancillaries in a film presently being shot in New Mexico?
.
17. What are the quantifiable differences between skeptibunkies and consistent skeptics?
.
18. Did Phil Klass have any moral justification beyond back-shooting his opponents from their lettered positions or driving them to suicide?
.
19. How does Stuart Miller exactly mirror Dave Furlotte from earlier in the program?
.
20. Crashed Saucers in the UK further mirroring Dave Furlotte?
.
Zounds, but only 30 minutes remain in this short program... Stuart Miller continues with discussion as regards what "sticks" about Nick Pope et al, then Chris Rutkowski regales with a report on his new book about gingham tea cozies... gotcha! ...Just seeing if you were paying attention. Seriously it's a cited book about UFOs as a _true_ global phenomenon!
.
Then, with as much "balance" as has yet been mastered, actually, Phil Klass was further "remembered."
.
Too, J. Allen Hynek slept here! ...Lots of intriguing and astonishing stuff to make you go hmmm, yea and verily. ...Stuff hard to discount when it is so soberly reported by a person with the stature of Mr. Rutkowski....
.
Ufological sensibilities remaining to be empowered are the listener's own! Subscribe or know the ubiquitous toad, fellow motes and travelers!

Making Money, Changing the Vibe

It's true the uber-skeptics of the world lie about the huge piles of money pouring in from UFO book sales, TV deals, and other related UFO commercialism; that's how, these skeptoids tell us, UFO researchers, witnesses and pundits make their money. UFO writers make money from telling, and selling lies. That's the gist of the pathological skeptics meme.

Those within the UFO community will tell you it's not true, no one is making money, not much of it anyway, from publsihign their books or doing what they re doing. Very few make any money to matter. There aren't any UFO researchers out there who are making enough money from their UFO and esoteric interests to give up their day jobs.

The latter is true. The former is just more nonsense from the so-called skeptic crowd.

But, there's nothing wrong with making money, and there's nothing wrong with making money from something you love to do. In my case, it's writing, and in particular, writing about UFOs and esoterica in general. In my case, I'm investigating myself as much as others. I also enjoy facilitating people of similar experiences and interests -- like Women Of Esoterica -- I love that. Making money from this is a blessing.

Of course, I'm making very little money. So far. Not enough at all to give up my day job. That doesn't stop me from exploring the UFO and paranormal realms every chance I get.

What if we changed this idea that "no one ever makes any money" to "it's possible to make a living doing what you love." Constantly reinforcing this negative idea that no one makes money from this ensures it stays the reality. I'm not naive, it's a hell of a lot of hard work, and you have to have the chutzpah to be annoyingly self-promoting. But maintaining that intent, if that's what you want to do, is a start. Like attracts like. Why not make some money from this?

The next time someone says no one's making money from this, just ignore them. While it may be true, it doesn't have to stay true. Arguing with skeptids is pointless; I don't even go there. Exchanging nasty barbs is not my idea of being productive. But with others who know first hand the truth (so far) that there's little or no money to made in UFO and paranormal research, there's the very real possibility this can change.

Just setting the intent, while continuing to do what you do because you want to do it, is a start.
