Listen to Dr. Bruce Maccabee with your host Earl Benezet

Dr. Bruce Maccabee is one of the legendary figures of Ufology. He has long been noted for his extensive and thorough investigations of UFO close encounters and abductions, and is considered the leading expert in the analysis of UFO photographs and videos.

Biography

MacCabee received a B.S. in physics at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Mass., and then at American University, Washington, DC, (M.S. and Ph. D. in physics). In 1972 he began his career at the Naval Ordnance Laboratory, White Oak, Silver Spring, Maryland; which later became the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division. Dr. MacCabee retired from government service in 2008. He has worked on optical data processing, generation of underwater sound with lasers and various aspects of the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) and Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) using high power lasers.

Ufology research

Maccabee has been an active ufologist since the late 1960s when he joined the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) and was active in research and investigation for NICAP until its demise in 1980. He became a member of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) in 1975 and was subsequently appointed to the position of state Director for Maryland, a position he still holds. In 1979 he was instrumental in establishing the Fund for UFO Research (FUFOR) and was the chairman for about 13 years. He presently serves on the National Board of the Fund.

His UFO research and investigations (which, he often stresses, are completely unrelated to his Navy work) have included the Kenneth Arnold sighting (June 24, 1947), the McMinnville, Oregon (Trent) photos of 1950, the Gemini 11 astronaut photos of September, 1966, the New Zealand sightings of December, 1978, the Japan Airlines (JAL1628) sighting of November 1986, the numerous sightings of Ed Walters and others in Gulf Breeze, Florida, 1987 - 1988, the "red bubba" sightings, 1990-1992 (including his own sighting in September, 1991), the Mexico City video of August, 1997 (which he deemed a hoax), the Phoenix lights sightings of March 13, 1997, and many others.

He has also done historical research and was the first to obtain the secret "flying disc file" of the FBI (what he calls "the REAL X-Files"). In addition, he has collected documents from the CIA, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Army, and other government agencies.

Maccabee is the author or coauthor of about three dozen technical articles and more than a hundred UFO articles over the last 30 years, including many which appeared in the MUFON UFO Journal and MUFON Symposium proceedings. Among his papers was a reanalysis of the statistics and results of the famed Battelle Memorial Institute Project Blue Book Special Report No. 14, a massive analysis of 3200 Air Force cases through the mid 1950s. (See Identified Flying Objects (IFOs)). Another was a reanalysis of the results of the Condon Committee UFO study from 1969. (Like many others, Maccabee concluded that Edward Condon lied about the results.)

In addition, he has also written or contributed to half a dozen books on the subject of UFOs and appeared on numerous radio and TV shows and documentaries (some given below) as an authority on the subject.

Maccabee is also an accomplished pianist who performed at the 1997 and 1999 MUFON symposia. He lives in Allen County, Ohio.

Listen to Dirk Vander Ploeg on "Conspiray" with your host Earl Benezet

Dirk Vander Ploeg is the editor and publisher of UFODigest.com and PsiTalk.com. He has worked as a publisher and writer for travel related and other magazines.

He has written the non-fiction book 'Quest for Middle-earth' which compares Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings' to ancient Earth history.

He graduated from Mohawk College majoring in Communications.

He studied communications in college, both journalism and marketing, but majored in marketing as there was more money to be made. But he always contributed articles, book reviews etc to major newspapers, including the Toronto Star and Hamilton Spectator. His father was a religious nut and my mother introduced me to the paranormal as a way of escape.
His mother’s cousin is Gene Barry, the actor that starred in the War of the Worlds. He met him once when he came to Hamilton, where he lived.

He believes that mankind was seeded by an alien race. This explains the “missing link” in evolution. According to certain researchers our DNA was altered, genes spliced, etc. Homo Erectus thus because Home Sapien- literally overnight. God or what creatures of the time believed to be Gods may have caused this intervention. The Bible and the Book of Enoch agree that the Nephilim took human wives and created a new race of supermen. He believe these were the elves and Tolkien used this storyline in the Silmarillion.
These elves were the demigods of history and folklore and had names such as Hercules and Achilles.
He always believed that mankind has reached high levels of civilization several times in our past, but natural disasters, such as Noah’s flood, caused them to decline.

He has traveled extensively in Mexico, Central America, England, Scotland, Ireland and West Africa. He has studied the Mayan civilization and Arthurian tales: visiting Tintagel, Glastonbury, Stonehenge etc.
As he was watching the first two movies it was as if pieces of a puzzle were falling into place, creating a history that he knew was true. Everyone has heard or read stories about dragons, giant eagles, elves, all seeing eyes and trolls. He decided to investigate Tolkien to see if he had knowledge of ancient history and he discovered that he did.
He also realized almost immediately that the quest for the ring was actually a grail quest. It was King Arthur and Camelot all over again.
Installing the rightful king could only save the land, Middle-earth, and he must marry to continue and renew the royal bloodline. That is the reason Arwen and Aragorn had to marry. She was an elf-queen, born of the royal blood.

He actually had no interest in Tolkien. He had once tried to read the Hobbit and didn’t get 50 pages into the book before giving up. It was only after seeing the first two movies that he went out and purchased The Return of the King and devoured it. Couldn’t wait a year until the release of the third instalment.
Prior to seeing the movies he had read, Holy Blood Holy Grail, as was aware of the San Graal or royal blood. Tolkien also realized the importance of this and wrote, ‘but in the wearing of the swift years of Middle-earth, the line of Meneldil son of Anaron failed, and the tree withered, and blood of the Numenoreans became mingled with that of lesser man’.
This also tied directly to Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, which he also absolutely loved.

He stated he believe his book is unique. He began by asking himself the question - is there proof available that the tale could actually have happened and he set out to discover if there was evidence to support this hyposthesis.

He is an avid reader and dreamer and have the ability to write coherently. One of my greatest assets, according to the women in his life, is that he am a collector of irrelevant facts. They suggest I would be a great contest on Jeopardy.

He considers his book to be starting point for scientists, historians and others, to ask questions about our past.

He gathered information for his book from the following sources:
- 12th Planet, The, Zecharia Sitchin, Avon Books 1976
- Ainulindale, J.R.R. Tolkien, Harper Collins Publishers 1999
- Da Vinci Code, The, Dan Brown, Double Day 2003
- Genesis Of The Grail Kings, Laurence Gardner, Transworld Publishers Ltd. 1999
- The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien, Methuen Publications 1977
- The Holy Blood And The Holy Grail, Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, Henry Lincoln,
Arrow Books 1996
- The Lord Of The Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien, Harper Collins Publishers 1999
- The Lost Treasure Of The Knights Templar, Steven Sora, Destiny Books 1999
- The Master of Speech, Shannon Dorey, Trafford Publishing 2003
- Realm Of The Ring Lords, Laurence Gardner, Fair Winds Press 2002
- Silmarillion, The, J.R.R. Tolkien, Harper Collins Publishers 1999
- Valaquenta, J.R.R. Tolkien, Harper Collins Publishers 1999
- Wars Of Gods And Men, The, Zecharia Sitchin 1985
- Iraqi archaeologists uncover ancient Sumerian ‘city of graves’
- Hobbit-Like Human Ancestor Found in Asia
- Gilgamesh tomb believed found
- Feds Want All-Seeing Eye in Sky

On his site www.questformiddle-earth.com we can read, “There is evidence that The Lord of the Rings was based on actual historical events”.

He states you will find evidence, some anecdotal, historical and biblical that support this.

Many Tolkien book fans did not appreciate even the movie adaptation, since the Lord of the Rings is ‘so’ precious for them.

He believes his book will be of great interest to Tolkien fans because they will gain knowledge of what he was thinking and why he wrote the story the way he did.

He also states his hope is to open the minds of his readers to ask, “What if…?”

The book took one winter to write and two years to edit.

He learned that he had a great interest in ring tales, which virtually are grail tales. He learned to speak Finnish so that he could understand their oral heritage. He also discovered that he published a prose translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, along with E.V. Gordon, in 1936 so was a grail historian, and he also believe, although Tolkien denied it, that the “Ring of the Nibelings” heavily influenced him

He scoured the Internet plus some old college English literature books, and he states the best way to learn about Tolkien is to read his books including the Similarion.

His website – www.questformiddle-earth.com - is basically a place to find out information about the book, about him and where it can be purchased in both book and eBook formats. The website will soon have reviews of the book posted on it and have an area where visitors can leave comments.
His main website – www.ufodigest.com - is an online magazine that deals with everything paranormal, with diverse opinions by 20 plus published writers and authors. He states we have been online since 1998 and have over 2 million visitors annually.

Listen to Dr. Roger K. Leir on "Conspiracy" with your host Earl Benezet

Dr. Roger K. Leir, author of the "Aliens and the Scalpel," has been said to be one of the worlds most important leaders in physical evidence research involving the field of Ufology.

He, and his surgical team, have performed 11 surgeries on alleged alien abductees, resulting in the removal of twelve separate and distinct objects suspected of being [[[alien implants]].

These objects have been scientifically investigated by some of the most prestigious laboratories in the world including Los Alamos National Labs, New Mexico Tech, and the University of California at San Diego.

Their findings have been baffling and some comparisons have been made to Meteorite Samples. In addition, some of the tests show isotopic ratios not of this world.

Dr. Leir has also been involved in investigations of other areas of Ufology involving physical evidence. He has traveled to Brazil and performed exhaustive research into the Varginha, Brazil case.

In 2003, Dr. Leir, the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS) and other world scientists completed a DNA study pertaining to evidence collected in a famous California Alien Abduction Case.

Dr. Leir is a Podiatric Surgeon, who has been in private practice in Ventura County, California, for the past 40 years. He anticipates performing more surgeries in the future and is investigating the physiological and biological aspects of the abduction phenomenon.

Dr. Leir recently formed a non-profit organization for this purpose called “A&S Research Inc.”

Dr. Leir is a Graduate of the California College of Podiatric Medicine in San Francisco, California.

He attended San Fernando Valley College and the University of Southern California (USC). He holds degrees in Podiatric Medicine, a Bachelor of Science and an Associate in Arts.

He was a Director of Research, involving a Tendon Regeneration Project, in 1964. During 1964-1965 he was a preceptor in Foot Surgery at Bella Vista Hospital in Los Angeles, California.

From 1971 to 1972, he was a Podiatric resident at Simi Valley Doctors Hospital and continued on as Director of Podiatric Residency Training. During this period Dr. Leir was awarded a Professorship in post-graduate education from the California College of Podiatric Medicine.

He served as the Chief of Podiatric Clinic at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital, Los Angeles, California.

He has served as Chief of Podiatry in many Southern California Hospitals, including; Simi Valley Doctors Hospital, Simi Adventists Hospital, Woodland Park Community Hospital, Conoga Park Hospital, Midvalley Community Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital.

Dr. Leir is Board Certified in the following boards:

The National College of Foot Surgeons The American Board of Podiatric Sports Medicine The American Board of Foot Surgery The American Circulatory Society and the Society for Non-Invasive Vascular Technology.

Dr. Leir is licensed to practice in the states of California and Oregon and holds a certificate from the National Board of Podiatric Medicine.

He has been interested in the subject of Ufology since his early childhood and has had several sightings of unknown flying objects .

He has also had two Near-Death Experiences .

Because of this, his cousin Kenneth Ring Ph.D., eminent author of numerous books, including The Omega Project, relinquished all of his personal research pertinent to the subject of Ufology to Dr. Leir.

Over the past 15 years, Dr. Leir has pursued a quest for knowledge within this field with great intensity.

As a result he served as a medical consultant to the National MUFON Organization as well as holding the office of State Section Director for Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties.

*Books by Dr. Leir*

Dr. Leir is the author of 4 books on the subject of Alien Implants:

* “The Aliens and the Scalpel” published by Granite Publishing

* “Implantes Alienegenas” published in Portuguese in Brazil
* “Ovnis and Implants” published in France by Le Mercure Dauphinois
* He has also produced an anthology for “Chopped Liver,” published
by the California Book Publicists Association and now available in
book stores.
* His latest book, “The New Roswell,” has been published in French
and is in the process of being published in English.

Listen to David Sereda on "Conspiracy" with your host Earl Benezet

David Sereda, born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on August 21, 1961, became a permanent Resident of the United States of America with his family in 1964 and grew up in the State of California. David Sereda's first aspiration in life was to become an astronaut. He kept a scrapbook of every Apollo mission while growing up in Berkeley and San Francisco, California in the 1960s. In approximately 1968, while David was on his way home from elementary school in Berkeley, California, he and his friend Tommy witnessed a large, classic disc-shaped UFO hovering in a clear blue sky with hundreds of witnesses shouting with excitement in the streets all pointing upwards in utter amazement. After 20 minutes to a half an hour of witnessing this UFO, David said he saw it literally disappear in one second into another invisible dimension, a subject that would take him until the year 2000 to understand. With a permanent and affected memory, David grew up as a UFO enthusiast never living in doubt of the phenomena that has swept the world since the Roswell incident in 1947. His interest in space, religion, philosophy, astronomy and science led him on his career in related fields. He has worked deeply in high technology, on environmental and humanitarian issues and as a professional photographer for over 20 years*. He has studied world religion, science, physics and paranormal psychology for over 25 years on virtually hundreds of issues.

From 1995 through 2001, at the request of Martyn Stubbs (who video cataloged over 400 hours of live NASA broadcast missions) and Michael Boyle (Professional Photographer associate of Mr. Stubbs) David Sereda conducted a deep scientific investigation into the scientific community at NASA and outside of the agency into 1990s space shuttle mission video footage of Unidentified Flying Object Phenomena. The results of that investigation led to the development of the book and documentary film, "Evidence, The Case For NASA UFOs."

David's Ancient of Days 2004 topic
"NASA's Video Evidence of UFOs"
Confronting Officials with the Paper Trail
David expects Volume 2 of his NASA material to be available at this conference

MORE: *Curiously, David is also the photographer who "discovered" Pamela (now Lee) Anderson. All that aside, from 1979 to 2001, in part-time reforestation work, David Sereda has personally planted over 1 million trees in the forests of the Pacific Northwest of British Columbia, Canada, Alaska and some in California. He has worked with oil spill clean-up on several oil spills, in California and in the North West. In 1990-1992, he became Director of the L.A. based “Tesla Foundation” promoting “Scientific Discoveries For a Better Environment” where he promoted breakthroughs in non-radioactive nuclear energy, solar power and hydrogen fuel technologies. ... From 2000-2001, David Sereda co-founded, with Ms. Shawn Mussell, “The Native Elders Video Library Archives” a non-profit, California based foundation developing a Video Library of Native American Indian Elders oral teachings and wisdom.

Listen to Stephen Bassett originally broadcast on "Conspiracy" with your host Earl Benezet

Stephen Bassett is a leading advocate in the nation for ending the 61-year government imposed truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. He is a political activist, lobbyist, commentator and columnist. He is the founder of the Paradigm Research Group, the Executive Director of the Extraterrestrial Phenomena Political Action Committee (X-PPAC), the creator of the Paradigm Clock and the executive producer of the X-Conference. His work has been covered extensively inside and outside the United States. See PRG Media Coverage.

Since 1996 Bassett has assisted numerous organizations and initiatives working to 1) raise public awareness, 2) convene open Congressional hearings to take government witness testimony, and 3) end the truth embargo. He has appeared on hundreds of radio and television talk shows and in numerous documentaries speaking to millions of people about the implications and likelihood of "Disclosure" - the formal acknowledgement of the extraterrestrial presence by world governments

_____________________________________________

In 1995 Bassett decided to bring a 15-year background in business development and consulting and a degree in physics into the issues surrounding extraterrestrial-related phenomena. His point of entry was a five-month stint working at the Program for Extraordinary Experience Research (PEER), founded by the late Dr. John Mack in Cambridge, MA.

In July of 1996 he left Cambridge to set up an advocacy organization, Paradigm Research Group (PRG), in Bethesda, MD, just outside of Washington, DC. The mission of PRG was to use all means possible to confront the United States government regarding its policy of a truth embargo on the events and evidence demonstrating an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and the formal acknowledgement of that presence. One of the first moves of PRG was for Mr. Bassett to register as a lobbyist advocating UFO/ET issues, most importantly Disclosure. He was the first person to ever do so.

In April of 1997 he attended the press and congressional briefings conducted in Washington, DC by Steven Greer and CSETI. During the July, 1997 events in Roswell, New Mexico, he assisted Stargate International in launching the "Petition for an Open Congressional Hearing on Modern UFO Evidence." This is part of an ongoing process to bring the United States Congress formally into the process of disclosure. The petition continues to gather paper and e-mail signatures and will eventually be presented to the Congress at the appropriate time. In October 1997 he assisted Frances Barwood, city councilwoman in Phoenix Arizona, in dealing with an aggressive attempt by her political opponents to discredit and punish her for speaking publicly and in council session on the lack of a proper investigation of the Phoenix UFO sighting in March of 1997. Ms. Barwood won her recall election by a 2 to 1 margin.

Another project of importance during this period was publicizing the complex issues represented by the Area 51 environmental damage lawsuit on behalf of former Area 51 employees. This case was pressed by Jonathan Turley of the Environmental Law Advocacy Center at George Washington University and eventually went to the Supreme Court where it was unfortunately rejected. In November of 1997, he turned his attention to the issue of the disposal of records and documents which may have historical bearing on the actions and posture of the U. S. government relating to UFO events and evidence.

In January of 1998, Mr. Bassett assisted in launching the campaign of Frances Emma Barwood for Secretary of State of Arizona, the first candidate to ever run for high state or federal office in the United States who will directly address publicly the issue of possible intelligent extraterrestrial presence in our airspace and lack of proper government response to citizens demands on this matter. She subsequently lost the primary election.

At midnight on April 30, 1998 he published the "Paradigm Clock" to the World Wide Web. This website is designed to support the researchers/activists in the field. The Clock itself is a metaphor for citizens and the media to develop a feel for the process of disclosure underway. Then from early April of 1998 Mr. Bassett worked to develop media interest in the anomalies present in the photographic returns of the Cydonia region of Mars from the Mars Global Surveyor. Additional concerns included the fate of journalists who had done investigative pieces unfavorable to elements of the government and the secrecy reform legislation (S-712) introduced by Sen. Patrick Moynihan.

Early in 1999 Bassett began a collaboration with Robert Bletchman and Larry Bryant of MUFON who had developed a UFO State Ballot Initiative targeting the 16 states permitting direct referendum. He developed a web subsite to represent this project. Missouri became the first test effort under the guidance of MUFON state director, Bruce Widaman. Then in July, after assisting Virginia MUFON in promoting MUFON's '99 International Symposium in DC metro area, he begun a process for a more intense approach to Congressional members. Consequently, on July 13, 1999 he founded the Extraterrestrial Phenomena Political Action Committee (X-PPAC), the first PAC in history to target the politics of UFO/ET phenomena and the government embargo of facts confirming the presence of extraterrestrial life forms in our world, now. Announced nationally on July 21 it will be promoted via its website at www.x-ppac.org and by ongoing guest media appearances.

In 2000 political initiatives were restrained by the pending change of government. Mr. Bassett continued to speak to the issue at conferences in Santa Clara, CA and Santa Fe, NM later that year.

Early in 2001 Paradigm Research Group and X-PPAC put their support firmly behind a major new political initiative titled “The Disclosure Project.” Specifically assistance was given to the holding of an important press conference on May 9, 2001 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. At that time the testimony of 70 government and agency employees, 21 in person, directly relating to extraterrestrial-related events and evidence was presented to the media. The totality of this testimony, compiled from 120 hours of interviews, essentially confirmed an extraterrestrial presence and a government embargo on formal acknowledgement of this fact.

On April 17, 2002, in a press conference held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, "Disclosure2003: the Maryland 8th District Congressional Campaign of Stephen Bassett" was formally announced. This campaign sought to challenge the voters of the 8th District (parts of Montgomery and Prince George's Counties) as well as the other candidates to engage the politics of disclosure and the facts of an extraterrestrial presence along with a range of other controversial issues neglected by America's increasingly risk averse politicians. The campaign website is archived..

On January 13 of 2003 he proposed a new project, Citizen Hearing, which would conduct a week-long hearing in Washington, DC before former Members of the House and Senate. The motto for this project is, "If Congress will not do its job, the people will."

In April of 2004 he produced the 1st Exopolitics Expo - the X-Conference - held at the Hilton Washington, DC North/Gaithersburg. This was followed by X-Conferences 2005, 2007 and 2008.

On October 1, 2008 PRG launched the Million Fax on Washington with the goal of directing thousands of letters, faxes and emails toward the transition headquarters of the new President Elect. The considerable correspondence generated all called for the new president to end the truth embargo, release all files, call for congressional hearings, and make available ET derived technologies to the public domain. Phase II of the Million Fax on Washington began on February 1, 2009 with the new destination the White House.

Concomitant with these projects was continuing public awareness work via the PRG website and media appearances coupled with lobbying of the political media to take notice of what is easily the biggest and most important news story in history.

With the nation and world moving into new and troubling territory, Mr. Bassett will continue to work to create a broad based coalition within the extraterrestrial phenomena research/activist community capable of reaching out to the twenty million plus American citizens who are following the politics of disclosure with interest and concern. The aim is to form a political structure of sufficient size to meaningfully influence government policies and actions leading up to and following the formal acknowledgment of the extraterrestrial presence.
