The “Stranges” of Valiant Thor
“Are you Strange?”
Frank rolls his eyes and replies, “Here we go again. No, it’s Strang-es.“
Prior to seeing Dr. Frank E. Stranges deliver a presentation (courtesy of this Roku channel, from what I believe was 1991) I really didn’t know much about him. The only thing I knew of Dr. Stranges (not to be confused with Dr. Strange) was his 1967 book, “Stranger at the Pentagon.”
In that book, Stranges outlined his very own personal encounters with a human-looking, extraterrestrial (a Venusian to be exact) named Valiant Thor. He was, and possibly still is, walking among us and supposedly within the halls of government, too.
Black Triangle Sighting in Iowa
A report was sent to me of a large triangle or possibly diamond-shaped object, which was spotted recently in Iowa on January 25,
2019at approximately 9:30 pm CT…
The witness and her mother were driving from Des Moines to Indianola on Highway 69 at the time when they saw a black, extremely large craft with “three porthole lights” on its bottom. The craft was approximately 500 feet above them gliding along slowly. The witness said that the craft even stopped or hovered at one point during the sighting.
Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers
In case you hadn’t heard, Jeremy Corbell is the new investigative filmmaker on the block with his latest film, Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers.
Regardless of what you think of the Bob Lazar story in general, this new documentary on him is certainly worth the watch. There’s no denying that Corbell is revisiting some of the most bizarre stories on the UFO landscape and presenting them to a new audience that may not be as familiar. If you haven’t seen Corbell’s film, Hunt for the Skinwalker you also need to add that to your playlist too.
But just like Hunt for the Skinwalker, it seems that people either love his latest film or hate it.
Going to the Source of the Strangeness
Recently, I did an interview for the API Case Files Podcast with its host, Marsha Barnhart. In the interview, we talk about my research into the Men in Black and other areas of high strangeness, which I chronicle in my book “The Spectrum.”
Click here for the full podcast interview.
Marsha was someone I initially contacted about a 2008-09 case that she investigated for the Aerial Phenomena Investigations (API) team. Even though it’s a multifaceted case, it’s probably best known for containing surveillance footage of two purported Men in Black (MIB) entering a hotel lobby in search of the manager at the heart of the case.
The clip showing these MIB caught on camera went viral soon after both Coast to Coast AM and BuzzFeed picked up on API’s case report.
Are UFOs Truly Extraterrestrial?
Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is back in the spotlight after undergoing cancer treatment. He recently appeared on KNPR to talk politics, but more importantly, his involvement with the secret UFO program that made national headlines back in 2017.
According to the article…
While most of what Reid weighed in on was politics, he also addressed the funding of research into military sightings of unidentified flying objects. Reid had helped to direct money to that research.
“I think it is something we can’t ignore,” he said, “I personally don’t know if there exist little green men places. I kind of doubt that, but I do believe the information we have indicates we should do a lot more study.”
He said there are eyewitness accounts from hundreds of people, including military pilots, of unexplained objects moving through the air all in the same way.
Reid said he is working with a member of Congress to create a place for military pilots to report what they see without fear of reprisals.Source: “Harry Reid: Renewed But Ready to Rumble?” KNPR’s State of Nevada on Nevada Public Radio.
The “Project Blue Book” TV Series
Check out the trailer for History’s new TV series “Project Blue Book” and tell me you don’t excited…
I think this might satisfy my craving for a little…at least until “The X-Files” returns. Eventually. Sometime. Hopefully.
A Mini UFO Flap in New Jersey?
Happy 2019 para-pals! The past year has certainly been an interesting one in the world of the strange. One thing in particular that kept me engaged were all the UFO reports I began to receive from New Jersey in 2018.
…including one bizarre Men in Black encounter two weeks after my lecture on, well, that very same subject…
At one point, I began to think there was a sort of “mini UFO flap” going on in the area, especially in South Jersey. Sure, it wasn’t nearly as impressive as the 2008 Bucks County, Pennsylvania UFO flap that occurred nearby ten years prior, but there were still an interesting number of cases, which Patch reported on recently.
Fifty-one to be exact. (Hold the Area 51 jokes please.)
People still don’t know about AATIP
Despite what most in the UFO field would like to believe, there is still a large group unfamiliar with AATIP—the U.S. government’s recently revealed UFO program. This was the main subject at this year’s 2018 MUFON International Symposium. For those of you who are part of that group, here is a link to catch you up to speed on the DoD’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program.
And for those of you who ARE familiar, here’s a more recent article just for you. Yes you, my fellow UFO nut.
George Clinton’s Alien Abduction
As one can imagine, legendary funk artist George Clinton has probably had a number of episodes of “missing time.” Those familiar with his eclectic taste know that he’s no stranger to the drug lifestyle, which also surrounds his legacy.
But there’s one experience George Clinton can’t seem to explain away as easily as that.
Recently, on Sirius XM “’70s on 7” channel, Clinton opened up about the moment that both he and Bootsy Collins witnessed while en route to Canada. Take a listen…
Is there more to Travis Walton’s abduction?
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?
