Feschino Flap





Frank Feschino lives my friend! Remember him as you pretend you took no sides when he disclosed... his tale to us on Errol's show. Invited, he just tells the story. There is no reward or glory, just a smear by those effused with ignorance which Frank's refused.
.
Not that he'd expected praise, but he's dismayed at the "disgrace." See, all he did was sift too well the "well raked dust" of Bluebook's "tell." Too, what was told as data's sieved and facts appear we can't forgive? Why, a betrayal of the trust which others missed and won't discuss!
.
Hauling data, Frank's returned. Sixteen years his search had churned! Too, he's been busy "prosecuting" all the claims dismissed "refuted"!
.
Still, dismiss him, and the stars, plus all of ones professed regard to hoe the jealous row of science! That lack of which is pseudoscience.
.
Seems Frank might be, what I sure feel... is the righteous, real deal! Too, there's interest from some principals most agree are more than sensible. Massive data must sustain more truth per drop than's been maintained by specious words or ill campaigns employed to cant considered brains!
.
Frank's been at this, years, my friend! See, you've the "cant," I would contend. You condemned him without reading, without so much as even thinking! Then lock ranks and shut him out without a thought what he's about!
.
Too, all because his book was raped, dispatched to an ignoble jape; perverted by an errant press and hacked beyond belief, you've read. Ask Don Ledger who'd contend that "errant press," too, hacked on him!
.
...Some reactive meme dispatched, to aid pro-active effort's crash? Folks who can't see other venues, the "blinkered fools" without known "menus," these must have it all their way... or make the rest, then, rue their day!
.
Frank has, frankly, done the work where others, frankly, weren't alert! This must help to open doors obstructed by "convention's" force, a force maintaining world views of niggards wishing mundane news!
.
Shoot Them Down is called a hoax and mocked, insulted... made a joke, but now it has deserving edit, a second look provokes a credit! Too! Feschino's story's caught the eye of persons more amazed than I!
.
Though, Frank's accused of a "destruction " a "very silly" contrived "construction "... built to "bring the 'study' down..." already limping and unsound!
.
But that's a crock, the data's there! This has one by the shortest hair. See, it's in the record no one read! If it's a snake, it's bit! You're dead.
.
Condon was a liar, hoss, and what's that fare, friend? What's our loss? What would we be if we weren't slaves and faced our future... acted brave?
.
Truth is better through my lens... facilitates respect, my friend.
.
Too, I... suspect that Frank's sincere, accept his work (oh my... oh dear!), and show that it's not Frank to say... compelling truth! No, that's "Bluebook's" play.
.
See? Over half the data's there. All had missed the "thread," Mon Frère! Likely blinded by Herr Condon... ill perceived non-truth, the problem: Dick and Jerry, primrose led to be so hard-nosed, and that said? Science fiction is far off... but data driven? That shoe drops.
.
It won't impede the crushing fact that "Shoot Them Down" was orders, Jack! We would want a saucer bad, so risk a war with "others"! Mad!
.
Too, it's not like we can't be stupid, addled, brainless… less than lucid, caught within the errant snare that we're "alone," but au contraire!
.
...Now I don't know what I've found out is truly what it's all about, but I respect what Frank has done... what he's late writ and by the ton! Too, some heavy-weights have waded in? Those who scoffed, prepare your chins!
.
Friedman, Cox, and Porterfield know the data cited's real. Good and Barker make a case, and Maccabee has interest placed. Responsible, one follows data, the rest is bupkis; zero... nada.
.
Think! There is more that has been missed if these men think this might exist. If I'm wrong, I'll say "mea culpa", double-slap my face like Culkin, apologize in verse and prose, and say that "you" were on the nose.
.
Until that time just hold your mud; refrain from holding breath, by God!  I don't believe I'm wrong, at all; convictions "soar and cleave" — my call!

Three generations of serious UFO researchers just missed it; the biggest flap in United States History of which we too faintly or even barely heard. Three generations of "UFO Hunters" from Keyhoe to Kimball, reader, never recognized the fumbled ufological ball! Gray Barker, of all people, got close, but he didn't have Bluebook.

A special thank you is extended to Dr Edward Condon, then, the stealth spook and authoritarian obfurator who had Bluebook and blew it off of needs decidedly niggardly, short sighted, and dangerous. Ignorance always is. Shame Dr. Condon! Shame.

Ask Stanton Friedman... the generation between Keyhoe and Kimball —presuming I'm forgiven this stretch to alliteration— he'll admit he missed it, I'm betting. But presented to him in the data rich manner in which it is offered? He caught this train, reader, shovels coal in the tractor, and officiates at the caboose!

Sentient Toads




As regards our so-called "mainstream," thought reflective and sincere; our "limit" on bad thinking — a buffer from "the fear":

Supposed "a mediation," or "distillation" of the facts, it's portrayed as very "logical" — the "cure" for "fakes and hacks." Too, it shills as sense's medicine, protection from the fringe, the unwashed and the ignorant… the deceptively unhinged.

It's the view that most will hold... because it is "official." Other views are ridiculed to implode upon dismissal. See, it's opposed to other views, which fade in sad distraction as the mainstream is a jealous foe and a master of detraction!

It will leave no stone unturned to keep its upper hand, and many that must challenge it are cursed, betrayed, or damned.

See, it owns the "eyes" and "ears"… we use to watch our day. Too, what's "perceived" depends upon the values it portrays!

Right? It pretends the common sense, the middle of the road, the sober and the rational, with the sentience of a toad! So, I am made suspicious of the track that it would take, the positions it's presuming, and the points it seems to make.

See, it's their point to satisfy... the folks with all the 'money'! Those "owners" of the "eyes and ears"… which seems a trifle funny?

The "mainstream" should reflect a mean, an average we all use… to find our way from day to day — that path of least abuse! Though, it's in fact duplicitous and hobbled by its bias... which is prosecuted merrily by those few who would deny us.

"Deny us what?", you'd smirk and sneer (officious and complacent). Well — deny us well nigh everything…, you… "less than perspicacious"!

We're denied a real world and 'real' people leading! We're denied the oversight of oversight that's needed! We're denied the real deal on what our actions cost, on who must pay for some to play, be a measure for that loss…

We are sold a bill of goods, we're led around by glands, and we don't get the "pictures" that occur in "other lands!" So we're denied that "portrait" of the way things really are… we're denied reality! Now, isn't that bizarre!


Don't pretend to fool yourself the mainstream acts for you, the hapless individual who is looking for some truth. It does in fact mistrust you and will punish you, you know? It's a knight in "Satan's" service of corrupted status quos.

There is in fact corruption of a type that startles, too, when you find it in the fabric of your life, and know it's true. It's a cunning contravention by a clan of psychopaths who support it with a covetous persistence not for laughs!

Too it won't care that "Christians" are allowed to prey on kids, or keep the crooked cops corralled when up to their old tricks. It's not just crass injustice! Loss of trust we must endure as the ENRONs of the business world collude their bull manure!

C'mon! This bogus mainstream is providing all the "pap" that the "talking heads" are drooling from their whining jaws like crap! It's not impressed that children die, well up into the millions! It shall not see a "Death Row" as a place for black civilians. It won't admit to slavery, the tortures it would craft, and it won't admit that it's remiss by practicing such graft!

The mainstream's not the mainstream when it won't reflect the views of the people it confuses with an obfuscation's ruse! It cannot be a mainstream if dismissing UFOs, as it's eighty in a hundred who are thinking "someone knows"!

Our mainstream's a betrayer of the truth that most would seek! The mainstream's made the lap dog of some grand conspiracy?

Our mainstream has been hijacked by some psychopathic thieves who are busy with their passion as they prosecute their greed. See, it won't reflect the real mean; it means instead to craft the 'mean'.

And that is like a mirror made to fudge its own reflection, where one can't see the blemishes one might find on close inspection. See, where one perceives the fairest skin, no need to wash ones face? One suffers unseen blemishes one should view with some distaste.

Here are some items about which the mainstream has had plenty of time to be forthcoming. All of the proceeding are perfect opportunities for the mainstream to actually be a mainstream — a reflection of a golden mean, a core of trusted rationality and logic; a steady (trust worthy) social foundation… a steadier foundation than there is presently for far too many individuals on much too small a world:


The unidentified craft appeared to take efficient controlled evasive action.
--FBI Memo, describing chase of UFO over the North Sea, 1947.

Before we could do any more, the Army, after conferring with [U.S.] officials, ordered the investigation stopped.
--Dr. Paul Santorini, on UFOs over Greece in 1946.

The reported operating characteristics such as extreme rates of climb, maneuverability (particularly in roll), and action which must be considered evasive when sighted ... lend belief to the possibility that some of the objects are controlled ...
--General Nathan Twining, Head of Air Material Command (AMC), 1947.

I was called one afternoon [in 1948] to come to the Oval Office – the President wanted to see me.... I was directed to report quarterly to the President after consulting with Central Intelligence people, as to whether or not any UFO incidents received by them could be considered as having any strategic threatening implications ....
--General Robert B. Landry, Air Force Aide to President Harry S. Truman.

From their questions, I could tell they had a good idea of what the saucers are. One officer admitted they did, but he wouldn't say any more.
--Commercial pilot, after questioning by intelligence officer, 1950.

Army intelligence has recently said that the matter of ‘Unidentified Aircraft' or ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena,' otherwise known as ‘Flying Discs,' ‘Flying Saucers,' and ‘Balls of Fire,' is considered top secret by intelligence officers of both the Army and the Air Forces.
--1949 FBI memo on UFOs.

Information is desired if this was some new or experimental aircraft or for any explanation whatsoever.
--1949 CIA memo.

[Object] described as flat on top and bottom and appearing from a front view to have round edges and slightly beveled ... No vapor trails or exhaust or visible means of propulsion. Described as traveling at tremendous speed.... Pilot considered by associates to be highly reliable, of mature judgment and a creditable observer.
--Air Force intelligence report, following UFO sighting by F-51 pilot, 1951.

...some propulsion method not in the physics books.
--Scientist who witnessed a UFO in 1952.

For six hours ... there were at least ten unidentifiable objects moving above Washington. They were not ordinary aircraft.
--Senior Air Traffic Controller for the CAA, Harry G. Barnes, 1952.

Based on my experience in fighter tactics, it is my opinion that the object was controlled by something having visual contact with us. The power and acceleration were beyond the capability of any known U.S. aircraft.
--F-94 pilot, after encountering a UFO, 1952.

In view of the wide interest within the Agency ... outside knowledge of Agency interest in Flying Saucers carries the risk of making the problem even more serious in the public mind than it already is.
--CIA memo, 1952

It was silvery in color, had a bun-shaped top, a flange like two saucers in the middle and a bun underneath, and could not have been far off because it overlapped my windscreen!
--RAF fighter pilot, 1954.

…Maximum security exists concerning the subject of UFOs.
--CIA Director Allen Dulles, 1955.

Some military officials are seriously considering the possibility of interplanetary ships.
--FBI memo on UFOs, 1952.

Pilot of helicopters wished to stress fact that object was of a saucer like nature, was stationary at 2000 ft. And would be glad to be called upon to verify any statements and act as witness.
--Emergency Report from Maxwell Air Force Base on air space violation by UFO, 1954.

I have discussed this matter with the affected agencies of the government, and they are of the opinion that it is not wise to publicize this matter at this time.
--Senator Richard Russell, head of Senate Armed Services Committee, regarding his sighting of a UFO during a 1955 trip to the Soviet Union.

What bothers me is what's happening to our aircraft.
--Anonymous Air Force officer, 1955.

The Air Defense Command in Baton Rouge was on the phone, waiting for our report, when we landed there.
--Commercial pilot following a UFO sighting, 1957.

Saucers exist (I saw two). They were intelligently flown or operated (evasive tactics, formation flight, hovering). They were mechanisms, not United States weapons, nor Russian. I presume they are extraterrestrial.
--Lt. Colonel Richard Headrick, radar bombing expert, 1959

Reliable reports indicate there are objects coming into our atmosphere at very high speeds and controlled by thinking intelligence.
--Navy Admiral Delmar Fahrney, public statement, 1957.

Congressional investigations ... are still being held on the problem of unidentified flying objects and the problem is one in which there is quite a bit of interest.... Since most of the material presented to the Committees is classified, the hearings are never printed.
--Congressman William H. Ayres, 1958

Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.
--Former CIA Director, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, public statement, 1960.

When the team was about ten miles from the landing site, static disrupted radio contact with them. Five to eight minutes later the glow diminished, and the UFO took off. Another UFO was visually sighted and confirmed by radar.
--Classified report by an Air Force Strike Team at Minot AFB, 1966.

... reliable, but off the record information from the Pease AFB in Portsmouth, indicates frequent radar blips and fighters are constantly scrambled to pursue these objects.
--Journalist John Fuller, 1965.

I think there may be substance in some of these reports ... I believe the American people are entitled to a more thorough explanation than has been given them by the Air Force to date.
--Congressman Gerald R. Ford, March 1966.

If 'they' discover you, it is an old but hardly invalid rule of thumb, 'they' are your technological superiors.
--National Security Analyst, Lambros Callimahos, 1968.

My own present opinion, based on two years of careful study, is that UFOs are probably extraterrestrial devices engaged in something that might very tentatively be termed 'surveillance'.
--Dr. James McDonald before Congress, 1968.


...All of the preceding are frozen moments in our ufological past and, collected together, a largely unimpeachable indication regarding the actuality of some larger reality... a grand physical existence from which we are being, very suspiciously, "protected" by a conflicted, corrupted, and likely criminal mainstream. Somebody knows. Read on.

Thinking And Waiting...


Yeah — hey! ...and thanks for sailing in! I'm feeling kind of low right now, so it's good to know a friend. Dismissed a "Cyber-Wacko" by some persons I'd admired, I'm stunned with disappointments I suspect are not required.

Citations by the carload? …Summarily ignored. Papers I have written are dismissed, subsumed — deplored? Not making any headway, I sense those spinning wheels; traction just ain't happening! Too, I sense a changing deal...

No one in particular, "I can think and I can wait." I keep my own good council, and I dourly face my fate. See, I've found I trust my conscience to define where I should steer, and I firmly heed my instincts on the subjects we all fear.

So, I'm not — much — distracted by the flapping of some tongue, or the tapping of some key by some dismissive 'other' rung. They're all just proclamation of the sort who must resort to the insult always issued by that sport without retort!

Some say there's no conspiracy of a type I have described. That *life* is no illusion and reality's proscribed! These become the haze we see — lies hidden in the fog. Truth? Our Institutes are porcine, filled with wolves and rats and hogs!

So say, oh, Noam Chomsky, Mike Malloy, and Howard BloomRidgeway, Marrs, Parenti, and with Webb (?) we're out of room. Some sneer at these citations and deplore what they express, but rebuttal's not forthcoming and you sense that they're distressed.

Now, am I incoherent when I write these earnest odes? Then what is that "coherence" you'd imply you have in loads?

Where is the alacrity your insults have not found, where would come your outrage that is specious and unsound? Where would come your petulance, your pique, and your displeasure? What have you provided to discussions… we can measure?

...And please don't tell me: "...many years of hard investigation." That just won't wash, you've had your chance, and agitate frustration. See? Enslaved to dodgy filters that enslave you to your cant? "Presumptions" are made differently so you have a canted stance.

Yeah… you print your "books" and make the "lists" but what have you to show? We're light-years from disclosure as you've hoed the wrong damned row! Fifty years have come and gone, the saucers still a giggle. Conspiracy has been dismissed, it's you to squirm and wiggle.

Now I'm the one to stand accused because I'm asking questions — because I make suggestions more proactive than repressive. Implied, I'm warm and fuzzy in conspiracy's cocoon, that I'm the lazy thinker (…that I'm crazy as a loon?).

Some say I lack coherence and I'm (only) having fun… but when the reading's over? "Lot 10" bullets fill their guns!

All of your "coherence" is comprised of narrow views. All of your "pronouncements" are just that, mere air you've used. Too, I doubt you have the competence to label me insane, or make profuse assessments on how others use their brains. You lack imagination, you're laggard and you're slow, you've moved not one step closer... so you'll reap what you would sow.

Too, providing still more insult to that person written to: you have no art you artless fob. You have no depth imbued.

Pandering after big-shots is a futile path to take, they have no use for what I've got; I complicate their stake! I entangle all their issues! I confuse the status quo. I confound them to distraction; I perplex them, don't you know?

See? If I am right, they live in fear — they lose the cat-bird seat. Everyone's *investment*? Up in smoke! That's hard to beat!

If I am *right*, they're nullified! Their "culture" loses air! Everyone must re-think work that's paid them "fair and square".

Everyone must take new stock! New kingdoms are at hand! A grander rule of law's prescribed by those who make their stand!

Correct, I signal something that's beyond what we've been told! Correct I am their death knell. Correct? Their bell must toll!

I'll not be "taken seriously," some officiously intone, until I kiss the ass of their ignoble "status quo," but I would sooner kiss the ass of all that I detest than go along with what some say or do as they suggest.

See. These ply a blithe denial that is cloistered and concealed. They're airily dismissive on what's regularly revealed! They're arrogant, sententious, and très smug beyond belief... like they've explained the saucers, sport, and that will bring them grief.

It's true that I'll respect some folks for contributions made, you'll understand, then, why I'd act... to move beyond their shade.

There's more to "this" than these let on, for all their acrimony on the general conspiracy these dismiss as trite and phony.

For all their admonitions on the "science of these things," they're too reserved for most of us wanting truth that "action" brings.

Too, there is a vast conspiracy, Sir, of a kind that you might find... in pursuit of vile agendas très complex that you deny.

SOB's Receding Horizons




I can step outside and find no limit — to my finite mind; that thing we have still reaching out beyond the "noise" some bitch about. ...To be amazed how much is plain so clearly sing this glad refrain!

The starry skies could crawl with life that comes from other suns, good night! There is frequent evidence that this, profoundly, must exist! Creeping lights still fly due west without a sound I must confess! Too, I might see them every time I put my eyes upon the sky!

Still, the bland officious must propose that I'm pretentious... and pretend that I don't see the lights I see confronting me! These "lights" are there despite indifference, that measure of their crass insentience; society subsumed so some can profit like they've used a gun!

"They" can make one "toe a line," deny one what she's earned [a crime!], and keep their heels upon ones neck — preclude someone a LIVING, yet!

The universe goes "on and on" in time that's more the merely long, where anything has happened there... righteous glory, cruel despair, or anything to fall between some yin and yang of priceless being!

Mainstream science is abject regarding what they would neglect, and one cannot presume to know what shall not honor quid pro quo. Reality's appalled at this, this ignorance proclaimed a bliss.

A universe, not user friendly, is where one lives a life completely. Though not a place for faint of heart... it's still a heart's component part... Truth's required to give life meaning. Antithesis is just demeaning.

All this *stuff* I've bitched about just bubbles at our core, good scout! We could no more stop its egress than one might stop a bullet's progress. There is something going on and someone knows; the feeling's strong, and I perceive what's been denied by institutions I've decried.

There are wonders prepossessed by psychopaths we should detest! These are men who jerk the reigns, manipulate our trusting brains with propaganda they enjoin to keep their status quo employed!

Now "we're" completely self-absorbed, a "bunch" employed but then ignored, and we must aid what would subsume our greater effort, be consumed? We scrap like wolves around a carcass, bitch and snap like Klingons, Marcus, tearing off odd chunks of meat so meaningless... and no great treat! Case in point, hate reappears, too, we yield gladly to our fears. What remains... shall not be spared... as "points are made" or "dollars squared"!

Most won't do the "selfless thing" and psychopaths must reign supreme. See, no one needs a "peer review" where rule of law is not abused! It remains we're soggy jetsam swashing on the decks of flotsam, and dashed against the rocks of those who profit by our ignorance, Holmes!

We find at last we live a lie that we've been taught we could decry: that priests are men above reproach; a lawyer's not a slimy roach; policemen are the friends we need to sanctify our selfish greed? That UFOs do not exist, that folks aren't taken — time's not missed, and we can trust our government is more than bovine excrement?

Well — I'm alive beyond that jive of what they make up or contrive. I am one no longer fooled by what they'd have me teach in school.

I have senses; I can see, I can hear and think... I'm FREE! I'll report the truth perceived without your baggage. I've been relieved!

Left to just my own devices (an idle mind is truly priceless!), I have found with cynicism, how some react to criticism. Too, if "they" take it personally, I might be right... these fail to see.

I know you're scared; well... I'm scared too... But someone knows, you know it's true. There is 'something' underlying, *someone's* there there's no denying, and it's, in fact, a lighted fart that we're 'protected' on our part!

We don't share a "blessed" ignorance! We're not served by our indifference! They'd say that we won't WANT to know... but then they would! That sucks and blows...

"Knowing", I suspect, improves the quality of life abused. If one is one, in fact, informed, then one achieves some 'better' form.

It's your loss if you don't 'know'. Truth's a boon they'll not bestow. They would lose the cat-bird seat, and they'd not suffer that defeat!

History shows that we're not served by lies and obfuscation heard. Secrets which are kept from you are what you'd want to know! It's TRUE!

Your ignorance is to their advantage to keep you at a disadvantage. It's ignorance rewards those pleased to prosecute their lust and greed.

You won't "profit"; you're made stupid, and that's the role of institutions which are closed to oversight. They're hiding stuff that shatters NIGHT!

alienview@roadrunner.com
www.AlienView.net


A closed institution is a bad institution — generally. A lack of critical oversight on any institution leads to corruption of that institution —if it ever was uncorrupted— in all cases. Absolute power corrupts absolutely, always. We're just not that good, yet. We lack the constitution to be efficaciously arbitrary. Evidence?

Consider thousands of scurvy chicken-hawk Christian priests running blithely free. Still, the masses (you and me) complacently allow them this, you see? Why?

Running parallel to the preceding and related I expect, there is a most fulsome whining and carrying on, otherwise, by the hyper-educated science religionists, presently, regarding a 'belief' that so called "pseudo-science" is rotting 'legitimate' science from within! This may be proud science thinking entirely too much of itself.

Grandly pontificated is this "rot" that the aforementioned science apologists say is facilitated by the mere consideration of various and sundry scientific so-called "heresies." These are tediously moaning pontificators who would have us believe that the study of UFOs, the 'Abduction' phenomenon, and other unsolved "anomalies" or "unsettling peculiarities" must destroy the very science that the more rational of us (ironically) would use to attempt a study of those things. Science should not fear investigation it seems to me. I was taught Science is investigation.

Now this is not surprising given the abject humiliation UFOs traditionally provide for an inappropriately arrogant science, but still: their protests are stuff and puling nonsense, reader!

It is the science religionists, themselves, who encourage that rot and disinterest! It is the science religionists, themselves, who make science dull to the layman and uninteresting to the student. It is the science religionists, themselves, who limit investigation to such a narrow band of filtered reality in method, repeatability, and measurement. It is the science religionists, themselves, who un-propitiously pitch the proverbial papoose with the dirty bath water (...sorry).

Finally, it is the science religionists themselves who depart from the reality of science when they obstinately CHOOSE not to go where the data ultimately leads —for shortsighted, self-serving, and status-quo maintaining reasons— ...uh, ...was a broad spectrum cancer cure discovered years ago and shelved to sustain a corporate bottom line?

Some of these science religionists pompously pronounce "reasonable sounding proclamations of scientific fidelity and high-toned diligence," but that is merely a fallacious cloak too airily worn, reader. Wearing these cloaks, remember, are mere garden-variety human beings.

Human beings. Likely ten in a hundred of these, more under pressure, are full blown sociopaths —monsters— and ninety percent of all of them are full of crap, in addition to being monsters, because ninety percent of everything, if you can believe Theodore Sturgeon, Isaac Asimov, or Stanton Friedman, is full of crap. Fealty, fidelity, and honorable conduct won't be guaranteed in "Scienceia," just as it can't be "guaranteed" anywhere. Verily, these obtuse science religionists can be just as crooked as anyone else...

One must make, you see, all the justice one can stand, themselves, by themselves, and around themselves. The hijacked mainstream can't (won't—shan't!) stand for very much of it themselves, so don't depend on it for justice.

The "well-meaning" but certainly axe-grinding klasskurtxians (interested only in keeping coveted positions at funding troughs) assume the cloaks of these "scientific religionists," write the rules for discovery, and make up from convenient cloth the definitions of "evidence." They set the "sliding-scale bar" of "proof enough" for the —very manipulated, conned, and complacent— rest of us. What is the "sliding scale" bar? What is proof enough? Are we manipulated (non-efficaciously so) by our society?

The "sliding scale bar" is the "killer app" rubric of denial employed by Skept-O-Bunkies (SOBs) regarding "extraordinary claims requiring extraordinary evidence," for instance. The "bar that shall be cleared" is set by the SOBs themselves, so there is never enough "extraordinary evidence" for a contested claim, resulting in Jean Van Gemert's receding —backsliding— and therefore unachievable "evidentiary horizon." As "proof" may counter a jealously entrenched mainstream, there "shall be" no proof extraordinary enough to unseat that mainstream. A non-efficacious manipulation... by any other name it is offal sweet.

The reasonably observant are not fooled. Too, the duplicitous-ness of mainstream science is sensed by the masses even if it cannot be articulated, as such, by those masses. All begin to perceive, to one level or another, that it is this conflicted mainstream defining the provenance of the ballyhooed and bemoaned "rot from within" if that rot "exists" at all.

"Anti-Truth" is decidedly not the fault of "fringe activities" arising only as a result of the scientific VACUUM imposed by those same reflex reductionists identified as SOBs. A vacuum decidedly remaining after those same mainstream's science religionists and their equally limited SOB apologists complete their cultural slash and burn of individual sensibility and then sail on, on our wind!

The proof of all this is a very obvious anomalous aerial activity that is still giggled at by the mainstream 50 years after it was first identified as a bona-fide subject of (mind-bogglingly!) gainful scientific study! The stars, ladies and gentle-bunkies! No less than the stars are lost in this artless Cartesian intransigence!

Any true investigation demonstrates that there is very little to giggle at, after all. Moreover, science, as a junior institution in the measure of things, shouldn't smile... especially condescendingly. A condescending smile's a smirk, and smirks should only earn a sneer from superiors, contemporaries, and subordinates alike.

Somebody knows. It's in your, very likely, gainful interest, reader, to know as well. Precluding your "knowing" are closed institutions without oversight for convenient reasons benefiting, and known only to, "them."

Most institutions are closed, or become closed to an individual if an individual can't or won't be "vetted" by same. Non-vetted Individuals are denigrated, marginalized, and reviled by institutions. I've personal experience with this.

Ironically it remains that Individuals —a result of their singular if transmittable inventiveness— are required for any lasting cultural success. Individuals are the affects of change required because what can't change dies... goes extinct. The consequence of rigid and unchanging 'closed' institutions are the death of evolving progressive culture.

Individuals are key. Respect your individuals; only, don't take any crap from them, either.

Read on.
