Get a feel for what it's like to be at Alien Con with this simple tour of the Alien Con Marketplace, a really fun place to shop and talk UFOs with fellow attendees and even "Ancient Aliens" stars!
Check out highlights from the amazing guest panels at Alien Con 2019 in Los Angeles. The following video features William Shatner, George Knapp, Jeremy Corbell, David Childress, Rabbi Ariel B. Tzadok, Linda Moulton Howe, William Henry, and Mike Bara discussing topics ranging from the mysteries of Antarctica to a possible connection between JFK and aliens:
A totally surprising and totally enthralling interview with one of the most amazing UFO "witnesses" of all time, Bob Lazar, has just "aired" on the Joe Rogan Experience. Documentarian Jeremy Corbell recently brought Lazar back into the mainstream with his film Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers, which is available on Netflix right now.
Lazar claims to have worked at Area 51 in the 1980s. He was tasked with back engineering alien technology, specifically a small reactor with the power of anti gravity. He also witnessed a test flight of a spaceship, and glimpsed into a large room that sheltered several other spacecraft, all of different shapes. Lazar also claimed to have read government briefings about these craft, and the alien presence on Earth. In one briefing, it was revealed to him that the technology he was experimenting on originated from the zeta reticuli star system.
It's important to note that many skeptics have since "debunked" Lazar's claims, and in fact, it is difficult to prove that Lazar ever worked for the US government at all. However, many of Lazar's claims have only become more credible over time. Whether or not Lazar's story is real, his knowledge certainly is. Lazar spoke early on about things that were not then known to the public, like Area 51 and a radioactive element called Element 115.
Back when Lazar initially spoke out about what he had seen at Area 51, not much was known to the public about UFOs. However, since then, the government's secretive UFO research programs have been disclosed, along with UFO sightings by top ranking military and government officials. These facts, along with the modern-day mainstream news coverage of them, certainly lend credibility to Lazar's testimony.
The Joe Rogan Bob Lazar interview is well worth a listen, not just to revisit Lazar's amazing testimony, but to also hear Rogan, Corbell, and Lazar talk about things like the recently leaked Wilson document (which refers to a crashed UFO) and Lazar's reluctance to do the interview. Lazar went so far as to say he believes his experience of being shamed and harassed in the public eye deterred other potential whistle blowers from coming forward. Rogan, however, believed that this time around, people will listen to Lazar and give him the benefit of the doubt. Did you watch the Joe Rogan Bob Lazar interview? What do you think?
Today is a pretty historic day in ufology, with President Donald Trump speaking openly about the UFO phenomenon. He admitted to being brief on the topic during his term, but also shared that he didn't personally believe in UFOs.
In an ABC News interview, George Stephanopoulos asked President Trump what he thought about the recent Navy pilot UFO sightings being reported. Trump said "I want them to think whatever they think ... I did have one very brief meeting on it. But people are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particularly." However, he went on to encourage the Navy pilots sharing their UFO encounters by saying "I think our great pilots would know. And some of them see things a little bit different from the past. We’re watching, and you’ll be the first to know."
For some UFO believers and researchers, as well as witnesses and alien abductees, Trump's disbelief in the phenomenon may be frustrating.
Others may find that a sitting president commenting on UFOs is a sign of UFO and alien Disclosure, regardless of the president's personal beliefs. Still others will find the president's lack of belief in the phenomenon to be a sign that he is not actively participating in Disclosure, for better or worse. Depending on who you ask, Disclosure will lead to mass enlightenment or deception.
What's interesting is right now, press Secretary Sarah Sanders is leaving the White House, and back in December 2017, she promised she would ask President Trump about aliens. She never did. But fast forward to now, June 2019, and George Stephanopoulos has finally asked the question... well, almost.
What do you think of Trump's recent statements about UFOs? Is he telling the truth about what he believes? Do you think he's been told the truth by those "in the know?" Or perhaps. Trump does believe UFOs could be real and could actually be a threat, and that's why he launched a space force.
(Note: Some skeptics consider the Allagash abductions to be debunked, as one of the witnesses claims that it was a made up story. However, the three other witnesses continue to hold that the incident was real. As always, you be the judge...)
Many know about the 1975 alien abduction of Travis Walton, but what about the encounter from just a year later occurring along the Allagash River in Allagash, Maine? It's just as well-documented, and more importantly, just as terrifying!
In the summer of 1976, twin brothers Jim and Jack Weiner and friends Charles Foltz and Charles Rak were camping along the Allagash River. After arriving at Eagle Lake by canoe, they felt compelled to go night fishing, as they were running low on food and had failed to catch much or anything so far. Before venturing out on the river, they lit a large campfire.
Something stopped them from night fishing that evening, though. Charles Rak - even after recanting his memories of direct alien contact much later on - remembers the UFO sighting, explaining how he "had an uncomfortable feeling of being stared at," which caused him to "(turn) around and (see) this very, very bright globe of light in the sky... changing color from white to red to green in a liquid kind of melding motion."
In other reports, for example on UFOCasebook.com, the mystery craft was described as "a light that seemed much brighter than a star," which changed colors and was estimated to be 80 feet in diameter, and moving slowly over the treetops.
One of the men signaled their flashlight at the weird, luminous craft, and that is when it traveled directly toward them.
After that, well, it was like nothing had happened. Suddenly, the men were back on the riverbank, and their impressive log fire was now just a pile of ashes. The group of friends were just left with questions, like "how much time had really passed during their short fishing trip?," and "what was that strange light in the sky?," however none of them wanted to ponder any of these things. The silence didn't last long, though.
Jack Weiner is the first of the friends brave enough to talk about the encounter. He is having nightmares that he just can't keep to himself anymore. They feature strange entities with "large metallic glowing eyes with no lids" as well as insect-like, four-fingered hands. He is also dreaming about "sitting on a bench naked and feeling very fearful."
To his relief, he is not alone in his memories. The other three friends, including his brother Jim, recall similarly terrifying experiences, but only under hypnosis, which was advised by UFO researcher and recent friend Raymond Fowler.
Other details of the encounter are eventually retrieved through hypnosis, including the extraterrestrial craft having a metal, sleek, sterile interior, and the beings having long, slender limbs and fingers, with only four fingers in all, and big, dark, "metallic" eyes.
According to early sources, all of the men had similar recollections of the scary alien abduction during hypnosis, and each of the men even passed a lie detector test about the encounter.
Many compare the Allagash Abduction incident to the contactee case of Whitley Strieber, a popular American horror novelist who wrote about his personal, frightening encounters with alien entities in the book Communion. Communion was published more than a decade after the Allagash Abduction, however.
Since the Allagash Abduction made headlines, one of the abductees, Chuk Rak, claims that the story of the UFO sighting and the campfire burning out is all true, however he never actually recalled the abduction during hypnosis. The other three witnesses maintain their stories to this day, however, so we are left to wonder... and have bad dreams about... the Allagash Alien Abduction.
If this abduction account and others like it are true (consider Roswell, Whitley Strieber, and Travis Walton), then what does that say about aliens?
Are they friendly creatures peacefully examining us for scientific purposes? Or are are they the unfriendly monsters we see in our nightmares? ... Or could they be a little bit of both?
