The Travis Walton 1975 abduction case is one of the more remarkable cases in ufology for several reasons. (If you’re unfamiliar with the case, then start here.) But one of the reasons I’ve become fascinated with it is not for what we do know, but rather what we don’t know. At least not yet.
Most of the attention in the case has remained focused on the single evening of November 5, 1975, when Walton first went missing. And most people assume that that is all there is to the story. That it was simply a one and done event, which involved one man at the wrong place at the wrong time, who suddenly disappeared after encountering a UFO. Walton reemerged several days later to relate his extraordinary encounters with alien beings and humanoids who he believes attempted to revive him aboard a vast UFO.
But was it really the end (or the beginning) of his strange experiences?
Revelations involving the Pentagon’s secret UFO program brought ufology to the front page of mainstream news last month. Yet one question still remains—who are the forces behind the phenomena and what do they want? The documentary “Alien Intrusion: Unmasking a Deception” attempts to answer that question on Thursday, January 11th at 7:00 pm for an exclusive one-night Fathom event. In partnership with the film, I am giving away a pair of tickets to various theaters in the Philadelphia metro area to see it, along with copies of the book, “Alien Intrusion” by Gary Bates, which the film is based upon.
If you live in Philadelphia or the surrounding suburbs (including New Jersey) enter to win by filling out the form below. One winner foralien abduct each theater will be chosen at random. Not local? No problem. Enter to win a copy of the book instead. But don’t delay— contest ends at 11:59 pm ET on January 8th.
There was a recent article posted by Alejandro Rojas to the Open Minds website recently. It details a long, lost photograph of a diamond-shaped, metallic UFO that the Ministry of Defence (MoD) regarded as “the real deal.”
Nick Pope, the head of the UFO inquiries division at the MoD at the time, revealed that the stock answer to an impressive sighting like this was “I don’t know what it is, but it’s not one of ours’.” This brings up a rather interesting debate about the whole conspiratorial aspect that UFO buffs often resort to—The government is covering it all up! Are they? Or are they just as clueless as we are when it comes to this phenomenon?
Maybe that really is a reason to ignore it, cover their eyes and hope that it all just goes away like a bad dream. Especially if we can’t stop or control the phenomenon, which sounds more like a nightmare.
So what happened to the poster? What about copies of the original photographs? Someone out there might still have them. Is it you? Let’s talk.

I received an email from Sue Swiatek, the state director of MUFON Virginia, about an upcoming conference in the Maryland area she organizes annually called “Fortfest.” I didn’t get a chance to attend last year’s but from what I heard it had a fantastic lineup. This year Fortfest also has some impressive speakers—some of which I’ve heard of, but have never seen lecture before.
I want to share with you a harrowing account involving possible human-alien hybrids located underneath a university in Baghdad, Iraq in 2003. I think this event is important because there could be other Marines out there who can corroborate or verify it.
A call to the January 8, 2016 “Midnight in the Desert” radio program was put in by the mother of a Marine who had been a part of either a reconnaissance or retrieval mission regarding these hybrid containers. In the caller’s voice, it was quite apparent that she was nervous relaying the story. I would post the audio itself for you to hear, but copyright issues from Rowland Network prevent me from doing so.
A recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel shows that Hillary Clinton’s interest in UFOs are still a priority. Plus, she mentions the term “UAP,” which actually shows she’s already educated on the topic. (Thank you John Podesta.)
The term UAP or “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” is something that former UFO investigator for the Ministry of Defence, Nick Pope, has referred to in the past. Apparently, it was a sneaky tactic that was employed in order to get around FOIA requests regarding the term “UFOs.”
Also, take note of her response to former president Bill’s previous inquiry into the subject, which Kimmel had also asked him directly about in the past…
It was supposed to be just another open lines night for the well-known talk show host, Art Bell, as he began another episode of his new show, “Midnight in the Desert” on the Dark Matter Radio Network. But things took a strange turn that Friday, July 31st, reminiscent of his older days hosting Coast to Coast AM. An anonymous caller masking his voice and identifying himself on Skype as “Classified Classified” came in just minutes before the end of the program.
Here is a rundown of some upcoming UFO events and lectures for the country listed in order of when they are taking place. Am I missing any? Let me know in the comments below or by contacting me directly.
This year is shaping up to be a jam-packed one on the lecture circuit. At least in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey region. Here is a quick run-down of some of the more interesting ones. Which ones are you going to? Let us know if you hear of any others!
