It has been apparent to me for some time that the evolving exopolitical movement of the new century has its roots in the contactee movement of the 1950s. It’s important for us to understand those roots and the underlying evolutionary forces that drove the contactee movement of the 1950s and which is also driving the resurgence of UFO/ET activism in the new century. I recently wrote an article on Howard Menger and am now working my way through one of my old books on Adamski. It’s called, UFO---George Adamski, Their Man On Earth, by Lou Zinsstag.
Lou was a friend of Adamski, and the niece of Carl Jung. She was a contactee herself, but only one of many contactees in a network of which Adamski, Howard Menger, George Van Tassel and Daniel Fry were the most publicly prominent. It is becoming very clear to me that this earth human network was linked in a very complex way to a very large extraterrestrial human network. While several contactees were very public, there were a large number of other contactees that worked behind the scenes and that had more limited contact with the various ET humans. I think it is a mistake to concentrate on just the public figures of the contactee movement of the 1950s because they represent just the tip of the iceberg. This is another one of those situations where it’s easy to obscure the totality of the forest when viewing the forest through several prominent trees. It’s the nail that stands up the highest that feels the hammer or the highest tree that get hit by lightning.
Likewise it’s the contactee or UFO/ET investigator that is the most prominent that feels the brunt of the mainstream propagandist and the critically biased uninformed UFO/ET researcher. It’s interesting to see how mainstream propagandists attacks in the 1950s on the most obvious contactees then led to further attacks by UFO/ET investigators and groups like NICAP on all contactees. Donald Keyhoe and NICAP felt the whole UFO/ET field was being discredited by the contactees when in fact the real culprits were the propagandists supported by the military and economic elite. I have experienced this phenomena myself when I was involved with Operation Right To Know and I see it beginning to happen again today in exopolitics.
As I work back through material and memories accumulated through my lifetime, the overall picture of ET human interactions is beginning to take shape in my mind. While I never have had direct contact with ET humans I have nevertheless felt a telepathic affiliation all my life. In investigating UFOs in my local neighborhood I have found myself on the fringe of a human ET network that seems to be dealing with the same human ET’s of the 1950's but in a much less overt manner. The very same things that were going on more overtly in the 1950's are still going on covertly. It’s clear that contact has not dissipated since the 1950s but simply had to go underground due to worldwide autocratic military and elite resistance. Contact may have covertly accelerated.
This is the way things look to me right now. The rapid advances in technical knowledge in the first part of the twentieth century led to space travel and the atomic bomb. The human extraterrestrials who had been monitoring developments on earth became very concerned both from self interest and secondly our interest as well. It became clear to the extraterrestrial humans that something had to be done about earth because we earth humans had become a clear and present danger to their societies in way that we can only begin to imagine.
Starting in the 1930's the extraterrestrials began an accelerated push to deal with the danger and had planed on a rapid overt intervention to get earth humanity back on the right track. Unfortunately for humanity as a whole and the ET’s as well, things were much worse here than was initially realized. Widespread military and elite autocratic resistance began to emerge in the 1940's and accelerated in league with the ET’s intervention. By the late 1950s it was evident to the ET’s that there would have to be a change of tactics and a much longer covert approach to extraterrestrial contact and intervention.
Being that these human ET’s seem to live to be about 800 to 1000 years old, the time span of this intervention is really still quite brief for them. Because of our much shorter life spans the transition seems to us to be taking a very long time. What the ET’s seem to have decided to do is to wait a generation or two for our societies to adapt to their presence and for the elite fear factor to dissipate before they made another more overt push.
I believe the rapid emergence of exopolitics is this second push toward overt contact by the human extraterrestrial races. So far I don’t see the severity of resistance that was evident in the 1950s and I think this is due to covert behind the scenes interactions with autocratic world leadership to dissipate that resistance. It seems to have worked and world elite autocrats and military leaders seem to be relenting and slowly dismantling the institutions that were behind the resistance effort. The reason that I am so interested in these old contact cases that involved official interactions with human ET’s is that I am told they are still ongoing to this day and the ET’s are getting tired of the foot dragging by high officials in government, the military and in industry in regards to the cover-up. It would seem that the ET’s are themselves adding to the pressure to disclose by threatening to once again go publicly overt if officials don’t fess up. J
A second complicating factor was when the human ET’s stood down; a gap opened up that allowed less friendly ET’s to establish contact with governments in the 1960's. This resulted in the acceleration of the abduction phenomena where people were being treated the same way we treat lab rats. These new ET relationships involved Faustian agreements that were really not in the interest of the elites or the public. In the early 1960's Adamski alluded to this about the time of his mental deterioration and dementia. He said a new group of ET’s had taken over. This new group of ET’s interacting with world autocratic leadership is pretty well outlined in the Robert Collins book, Exempt From Disclosure.
Coinciding with this new push by human ET’s we seem to have a reduction in abductions that may mark a reduction in the involvement of world governments with the less friendly ET’s. What it looks like to me is that autocratic elites have had to learn the hard way that resistance to the friendly ET’s was not in their interest nor in the interest of humanity as a whole. At this time it is quite evident that world autocratic elites have not only suppressed human evolution on earth endangering humanity itself, but have even put the whole planet in danger of environmental destruction. World elites really have no option but to cooperate with the friendly human ET’s wither they like it or not. It is becoming obvious to us all that world leaders have failed their respective publics and really screwed things up on this planet in the past century.
I seem to have some guidance as I work back through my memories and my accumulated literature on UFO/ET. I have always been interested in the big picture and it seems to be coming into focus. In order to understand the present, we need to be able to understand the past and how things got to this point in our history. I think it is my job to help out in this process by conceptualization of the situation and then to publicize these concepts and evidence on my blog and perhaps later in book format. In the previous article I took a new look at contactee Howard Menger and his contactee and ET networks and now I want to take a new look at George Adamski and his networks.
The book UFO… George Adamski, Their Man On Earth is written by Lou Zinsstag an associate of Adamski and a contactee herself. The book I have is one of those books published by Wendelle Stevens that is not widely known. It is obvious that Lou Zinsstag is very intelligent and I see from this book that well know author Tim Good has spend a lot of time working through her files and even co-authored a book with her. There is some really good information here, just not on George Adamski, but on those other not widely known contactees that made up the network. As I said before I think it is a big mistake to only concentrate on the most public contactees that made up these networks.
Every person has their frailties and propagandist-debunkers are very good at finding error in one person of a network and then using that to debunk the person and the whole network. I find that most establishment UFO researchers, with people like Timothy Good being an exception, have fallen under the propagandists spell, woven so many years ago. I have heard a lot of people popping off publicly discrediting these early contactee networks when they have not really studied them in any depth and are only regurgitating the propagandist’s line. Or that they are relying on a personal experience, a partial truth that is out of context with the totality of the situation. If Tim Good spent years trying to get to the bottom of the Adamski case and failed, then we aren’t going to get to the bottom of it either until the UFO/ET cover-up ends and the U.S. government opens its files. Anybody who says they have, are blowing smoke.
In the Lou Zinsstag book is a description by Adamski of the dress of his extraterrestrial contacts that matches those of other contactees like Howard Menger. On page 24, “I saw no zippers, buttons, fasteners or pockets of any kind, nor did I notice seams as our garments show. It is still a mystery to me who this garment was made” … Not only does this fit Mengers’s accounts of the space suits but other cases like the one I have about the humanoid that died in Sweden.
On page 25 is a reference to an official scientific interaction with a human ET in the 1950s. It would seem that the Eisenhower meetings were not the only official covert meetings with human extraterrestrials at that time, top scientists and engineers were meeting with the extraterrestrials as well. The first reference is detailed in a letter from Waveney Girvan, dated September 17, 1962. “… a colleague at the office where I work … approached me with a sensational story. She had not previously realized that I was interested in the subject. Her brother, she tells me is an extremely important expert with one of our famous aircraft firms. Five years ago, he was invited to the United States with several of his colleagues in the industry to inspect a landed saucer and meet its pilot. He went, and the pilot was exactly as G.A. has described such a person; He communicated by telepathy and he told those assembled that beings like himself had infiltrated among us. In other worlds, I have confirmation that G.A. is telling the truth. From that follows – van den Berg is telling the truth and that his invention is the most important of all time. I am redoubling my efforts to bring this man to England first rather than to the United States.”
Lou says, “The second came from our friend John Lade, Adamski’s first co-worker in Great Britain. It was a copy of his letter addressed to Richard Hall, then secretary of the organization NICAP, Washington (President; Donald Keyhoe). The letter says, “Waveney Girvan wants me to tell you that we had a leak of information through a man who a few years ago was called to an international meeting on your side to view a saucer, of the type resembling two saucers one above the other. The pilot (who was longhaired, ski suited, and of distinctly Aryan appearance) addressed the gathering of scientists and aeronautical experts telepathically and we are told that it was an extraordinary experience to hear the audience break through the silence by laughing together sometimes thus proving that they were receiving successfully.
However, as the pilot proceeded to describe the motion power of the craft the audience lost grip and even the most advanced scientist present could no longer follow the concepts offered them.” Lou wrote a letter following up on this. “On April 4, 1963, I wrote a letter to Henk Hinfelaar in New Zealand , in which I stated: “… They (Waveney and John) are still trying to get into contact with the airplane engineer whose sister talked to Waveney. As it came out, she should not have done this and is now strictly forbidden to do it again; Her brother signed a silence warrant in the U.S.A.” There is more material in this book that shows that the engineer in question had to deny the event ever happened.
Another very interesting alleged official meeting crops up on page 37. This is reference to an Adamski related event where a pilot and plane was picked up in mid air and sucked into the hangar of the extraterrestrial craft. Hmm, I guess I better type in this account on page 36 before I get to the official scientific meeting on page 37. Lou says, “This just the record, and for my own satisfaction. Mrs. Wissler gave a detailed account of a most remarkable story which, as far as I know, never went into print.”
“Among others, Adamski told us the story of a pilot whose plane was stopped in mid-air while an enormous cigar-shaped space ship with a large hangar door opened, approached his plane and sucked it in. The men in the space ship (who said they were from Venus) showed the pilot around and were very friendly. They spoke in perfect English, telling him that they were observing, in growing numbers, the inhabitants of this Earth and all their actions. They pointed out their concern with our Atomic bombs and said that they would never allow our planet to be capsized by them, because such an event would disturb the magnetic fields in the whole solar system (not only ours) and might lead to heavy disturbances on their own planet.
After having spent more than two hour in the ship, the pilot asked the men for some kind of written evidence as an explanation for the lost hours in which no fuel was used in his plane. They not only complied with his wish but asked him to hand out their manuscript to the high personality in the Pentagon (name withheld by G.A.). The pilot stood by, watching them put up a long and carefully written letter. He was told that the one-page page letter was full of information and that every single one of their symbols was full of meaning, because they were not single letters but rather whole sentences. These symbols consisted of small circles, about the size of a German Pfennig (smaller than a penny). The circles were filled in with lines, dashes, dots, rather like hierographic signs, reminding the pilot of Egyptian, or Indian, writings. One little circle was close to the next. The pilot watched the men putting down the signs, a procedure which took the better part of half an hour.”
Adamski continues, “This letter was brought by the pilot to the Pentagon, as suggested, and he asked for a few copies for himself. He got four of them; one for himself, one he sent to the President (Eisenhower), one to the Pope (Pius XII), and one for me. A few months later he came to Mt. Palomar to hand it out to me. He had read my book and believed what I said. I had to give him my promise never to reveal his name.” A copy of this ET letter was circulated and viewed by others.
This was not the only incident of a pilot visiting with George Adamski and giving out detailed information. On page 34 of Lou’s book is another very interesting account of an official scientific meeting involving extraterrestrial humans. Lou says, “Lucy McGinnis wrote to Captain H.C. Petersen, our co-worker in Copenhagen. It was published by Henk Hinfelaar in New Zealand, in June 1960:”
“…. The incident to which I believe you have reference took place about seven or eight years ago – maybe longer, I forgot the year although I well remember the time the report was given to G.A. A young pilot who had been to the café a number of times and had talked with G.A., came in for lunch one day. This man told G.A. that he was in a hurry, but had something he though G.A. would be interested in knowing. He then told about piloting an American plane to Australia where he landed on a vast airport, but did not give detailed information as to its location. He said that a gigantic spacecraft was already there. He was introduced to a group of scientists from other planets ad told he was to take them to a scientific meeting in Scotland. The reason for them having to travel in one of our planes was that there was no landing field in that part of the world large enough to accommodate their ship.
The young man told G.A. that all of these men were very good looking, friendly, and intelligent. He liked them very much and was very impressed by them and their conduct. He remained in Scotland with his plane while the visitors attended the conference. Little publicity was ever given to this scientific conference although, we are told, scientists from every nation in the world were also present. When the conference ended, the young man returned them to their ship in Australia, then returned to the States. He told G.A. that he had come to see him immediately but was leaving again the same evening for another flight.
Naturally, many of our memories have faded through the years. We cannot give you this young man’s name because G.A. made a practice never to ask the names of people giving him information, although many showed him their identification and credentials. He deliberately forgot their names, because he never wished to in any way endanger them for their information given him. This was easily done in a café where hundreds of people from every part of the world came and went, month in and month out.”
Miss Wissler’s notes continue: “Later on Adamski said that there was already a lot of proof in the Pentagon (for his statements), hundreds of pieces of evidence being stored away and hidden in a special part of the building which could be entered by only two or three people. He maintained that nobody at the Pentagon denied the existence of UFOs nor denied them to be in possession of proof. Yet, he said, they think it wise to let the truth come out only slowly, in small amounts, for better adjustment not only of the people but also of the industry …” Lou says, “Today, this statements sound rather naïve but we have to remember that it was made in 1959, when things looked much brighter for UFO researchers.” It was about this time that Adamski was severely threatened and he talked about being encircled. This was also the time that his mental state began to deteriorate and the contactee network he was involved in began to break down and fall apart. This seems to coincide with the breaking off of contact with his ET friends. Maybe one day the whole truth will come out about what really happened to humanity and the world at that time.
I think that my regular readers can begin to appreciate that there is a shared responsibility for the past and present undesirable extraterrestrial – earth human situation. The human ET’s seem to have acted aggressively without enough consideration of the possibility of an extremely negative reaction by elite autocratic world military and economic interests. They failed to properly access the feeling of fear and helplessness of the military, as well as the entrenched autocratic economic interest’s greed for money and power over their fellow human beings. For this reason they had to adjust tactics at the end of the 1950’s and become less overt and more covert in their interactions with earth’s humanity.
On the other hand earth’s economic and military elite are also responsible for the past and present undesirable situation in that they have suppressed and propagandized their respective publics in direct violation of humanitarian and democratic values. There is simply no excuse for their violent repressive tactics against the ET’s and the general population of this planet. Their actions have been criminal and barbaric. It is not that the public can’t handle ET visitation and infiltration; it’s the elite that can’t handle the interactions and interventions for reasons of fear and greed. The mass media also has a shared responsibility for the present undesirable situation in that they allowed and participated in propaganda operations against the public for the past 60 years making them not public watchdogs but elite lapdogs.
Recently there has been some encouraging news. Rather suddenly some critical elements of the mass media, major newswires and major newspapers have begun to play it straight about the UFO/ET subject. This seems to indicate a change in policy at the highest levels of government. Let’s hope this lasts. If the media is “allowed” to play it straight, the cover-up cannot last much longer. Of course they may not really be playing it straight quite yet if ever. The media lapdogs will continue to propagandize the public by misleading partial releases of information to the public. I expect the propaganda press to continue to support existing national and international institutions and to rationalize their and the world government despicable actions against ET’s and humanity as a whole through misleading partial releases of information. Tigers don’t change their stripes easily. I see it as my role and the role of my associates to keep all culpable institutions feet to the fire and to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth to the public.
