A Star In Kansas (Part II of II)



PART II


Last time we put justified tears to rest, tried and failed to herd cats, established justifications, and were substantively lectured by people of unquestioned sincerity...
.
We move on.
.
Foundations laid the previous day, the next day's activity is a panoply of UFO subjecture wholly complementing the previous day's presentations, expanding the history further back then is generally known, and touching substantially on the theme of the OZUFO conference:  UFOs and Nukes.
.
Butch Witkowski
First up—and right after breakfast too—embattled researcher Butch Witkowski, takes us for a walk on the dark side of the abduction phenomenon with a forensic presentation of, not "cattle" mutilation, mind you... but "human" mutilation.  Could the "other," apart from merely abducting we humans, be torturing, mutilating, and murdering us too?  The evidence seems inconclusive to this observer, but something produced the horrendous and stomach churning subjects of Witkowski's unsettling photographs, and the case he makes is not entirely dismissible.
.
After a welcome break from Witkowski's punch-in-the-paranormal-gut that was his presentation—not for the squeamish—Rosemary Ellen Guiley served up more engaging and embraceable fare.  First a word about Ms. Guiley.
.
Rosemary Ellen Guiley has written some 43 books, numerous papers, and is on the mastheads of several named initiatives aspiring to meld spirit and science in the name of equal time for both Plato and Aristotle, I submit.  A lovely woman such as she is, with her world class reputation and sought after schedule, could be expected to be aloof, standoffish... even arrogant and elitist.  Not so Ms. Guiley!  She was ever gracious and approachable, more a listener than a talker, and damned funny too.  Likable on all levels. Approachable at all times.  Appreciable in every regard. 
Guiley and Feschino share a table... 
.
Regarding her current book, written along with her less than fortunate co-pilot on the venture: the increasingly infamous and now wholly discredited Philip Imbrogno, she explored how far back into our history the other, alien, or ET may go.  Islamic tradition parallels Christian tradition with regard to "fallen Angels," it seems.  UFOs, abductions, and close encounters abound in Textual Islam just as they do in the Bible.  Only, Islam seems to take a more balanced, informational, complete, and evocative position with regard to the reportage on their gods and angels.  This is as it pertains to angels "fallen," or otherwise.  To say that her presentation was compelling is to prosecute an understatement.  ...First-wash talk from a top drawer lady.
.
Bryce Zabel
Following Guiley, Bryce Zabel returned to presage his writing partner and co-author, Richard Dolan, coming later, on the consequences of official disclosure of the outré  "other" as it pertains to the effects and affects of this "other" on human Government, Religion, Institution, and Agency (GRIA).  What will change and why?  How will GRIA change and where will these changes manifest most?  When will these changes be, not found, but faced
.
Peter Robbins
After lunch, we regard Nuclear weapons and the UFOs—with the presumption of self-aware occupants—interested in them.  First in the breach is the always with-it and persuasive Peter Robbins to revisit the Rendalsham Forest Events: The Woodbridge and Bentwaters Base Incidents in England.  The update on current events and principals was more than interesting and of note, but special mention must be made of something else.
.
Robbins extended what this writer took to be an Olive Branch to Colonel Charles Halt regarding some low-intensity conflict the Rendalsham principals had been enduring for some time and did so with humility and style.  When Col. Halt took the podium later on for his presentation he, again by this writer's estimation, accepted said Olive Branch with grace and aplomb and made a startling disclosure of his own. 
.
Charles Halt
Halt reported that the enlisted men associated with the Rendalsham incident were put through a "stand-down" so bloody arduous in extremis that it involved unending debriefings of brain-washing intensity and psychotropic drugs!  That's the long and tall on this writer's take. He remarked further that it was a wonder that these brave men had any "there" there, left at all.  The question is begged: is this the way we treat brave volunteers who witness something inconvenient to a corrupt authority through no fault of their own?  I can work up little surprise if so.  Still, a startling disclosure!
.
Robert Salas
Moving forward, Robert Salas took us all deep into the secret and hugely well-vetted world of the atomic Missileer, nuclear missiles, and astonishingly, effecting UFOs!  With illustration and lucid talk this Air Force veteran, retired master's engineer, and high school math/science teacher, does his society one more good turn!  
.
See, he faced the ufological reality foursquare and, with no small courage, passed his experience on to the rest of us.  At the end of his presentation, I hurried backstage and told him that I was hugely impressed with his history of service and was officially bestowing upon him the "As Ufologically Sober As Stanton Friedman," award.  He had a hearty laugh and so did I... it was good, though.  He was that compelling and that convincing. This writer's read is that Salas tells the truth and nothing but.
.
Colonel Charles Halt then took the mound! Number two man at Bentwaters Base in England during the infamous—and getting more so—UFO incident of 1980, he pitched a perfect game pertaining to his being on site, ground zero, for "first person testimony of the event" rights.  His story is important in the nukes & UFOs context because "everyone knows," nuclear weapons were being stored illegally at that facility in 1980!  Colonel Halt?  He fixes you with a stony expression and informs you that he is not at liberty to either confirm or deny. 
.
The ranking witness to the event, he's on clear audio tape with his subordinates, a crack team of top notch Security Police—"guarding nuclear weapons," remember so, "crack" by necessity and design—as they chased close-counter, even physically touched, UFOs in the otherwise deserted forest.  This UFO was witnessed by civilian persons off the base too, reader.  This did not...as it is maintained ..."not happen"!
.
The closing day of the Summit was "final history and likely implications," day.
.
Feschino & Friedman
First up was my good friend, "Shoot Them Down" researcher and author Frank Feschino Jr.  His presentation regarding extant military "Shoot UFOs Down" orders, the biggest Flying Saucer Flap in US UFO history, and the whole 1952 "Summer Of Saucers"  affair... only culminated in the Flatwoods Monster situation, a presentation in itself... It is, again, the ETH so far up your nose you feel knees on your mustache as I alluded before. 
.
There's a lot of military history in Feschino's 90-minute presentation, air, and ground, and just how is it that a whole battalion of infantry can be deployed to a remote area because a woman and six kids see an "owl" in the mountains?  Enthralling, to be sure, but this was not the "hit" of his presentation.
.
The "hit" concerned the eight-foot square time-line-map documenting UFO activity in and around the State of West Virginia (http://tinyurl.com/3mkl4m6).  See, if the reader was informed that the furiously busy construction laboriously laid out reflected UFO activity, in and around the State, over the preceding decade, they would be impressed enough!  Though reader... ...the construction alluded to reflects only 21 HOURS worth of activity September 12, 1952... and the bulk of that in just 2 hours!  Be now properly impressed!
.
Richard Dolan approaches, reader, cue the ominous music.  There's
Richard Dolan
no secret why Richard Dolan gets invited to conferences all over the planet.  Besides being a leg of my own personal Ufologically convincing "quadrature" or "Quad Riga," he has for many years (along with Feschino, Friedman, and the not attending Robert Hastings) been my ufological goto.  Dolan is the very portrait of the person one would think is needed to break the unsettling if inevitable news to the rest of us.  Still warmly approachable like the college professor/hero in a quality 1950s Science Fiction film, he's tall, fit, and hugely eloquent.
.
Dolan envisions a breakaway civilization inside the civilization we know, if unknown to you and I.  This civilization within a civilization may avail themselves of wondrous technologies purloined from crashed saucers and strange deals with their builders, and, catbirds in catbird seats, it could be this secret civilization keeping official admission of such at bay.  Cogently opining on the inevitability of that "official admission" or disclosure, Dolan explores the affects and effects of the supposed secret civilization on its parent civilization.  Good stuff raising the hair on the back of one's neck to be sure—one has to face fear to mitigate fear, reader—but, still, not to be compared with Dolan "one on one."
.
Dolan had me out for a beer, once, during a break in the evening program where he wolfed down a Veggie pizza... and he told me 'stuff' that made me dizzy... made me feel like he'd turned gravity down somehow, real light in the seat and "Twilight Zonie." One on one with Dolan is a memorable experience.  It wasn't the beer, folks.
.

What 'stuff'? What you'd expect, on reflection. Big names undisclosed in dark, still smoke-filled rooms, discussing the unknowable, to us, but pedestrian to them like they live in another reality or dimension entirely... a select group of human beings availed of Technology so advanced it's real magic in a synthesis of mind and material... provoking "breakaway civilization" and facilitating a different "kind" of human, altogether. Shocking!

.
Head swimming 'stuff'. Iterated justifications for why we are, at all, interested in this 'stuff', eh?  Dolan instructs that our interest is justified, brothers and sisters! Yea and verily!

.
Steve Bassett
Closing... the reader can say what he wants about final speaker Steve Bassett.  That he is a belligerent bombast in the vein of a ufological Alex Jones.  That he's a UFO guy never seeming to get around to talking about UFOs.  That he hijacks conferences with talk about secret underground cities, FEMA concentration camps, suitcase and shipping container nukes used on the heartland of the US and seaports coast-borne... 
.
Though, consider: it might be that he genuinely feels that an across the board disclosure, given the ufological reality outlined by most of the previous speakers, may be just the thing to preclude the use of those aforementioned nukes, those proposed concentration camps created in the wake of atomic blackmail, tens of thousands of children starving to death, presently, on this planet every day, oceans dying in turgid toxic filth... all this where we have an un-admitted wherewithal with regard to secret technology that could mitigate all these tragedies?  Yet, a result of reptilian sociopathy, our unelected leadership would deny the race of us these mitigating boons.  Well, this writer is provoked to a little belligerence of his own.  You go, and God's speed Mr. Bassett!
.
John Leatham
Finishing up, let me congratulate, again, OZUFO Summit producer, Mr. Dan Lauing, a good man of sincere passion with the courage of honest conviction to say what he thinks needs to be said, able to provide a platform for others to express similar unsettling sentiments, and then making that so, compellingly, so.   Also, acknowledged here is John Leatham's wholly selfless quality value added.  OZUFO is not done without yourself, Sir.
.
I look forward to the next substantive conference.  There is a new star in Kansas.
