As someone who is actively involved in conspiracy research I try very hard to put forth information which is well founded and researchable. I have long held the belief that you should not trust me, you should see what I write and do the research to come to your own conclusions. Like many researchers I can and do make mistakes. This, however, is not the prevailing view amongst conspiracy researchers who seek to spoon feed answers to the public. The interesting thing is where those answers come from, and you might be surprised, well shocked is probably the better word.
Each day, as a researcher, I hit up a lot of different news sites and try to get the gist of the days headlines. I seek out both mainstream and alternative news to try to find nuggets of information because lets face it - this is the conspiracy world and sometimes a nugget is the best thing you have. Many times I see very provocative titles about wars, rumors of wars and lots of other dribble which has very little basis for reality but one thing is always for certain - I see RT and Veterans Today cited extensively. So awhile back I decided to do a little research, I am a researcher right, to figure out who is behind these media sources. I discovered, to my surprise that RT/Russia Today is a Kremlin funded propaganda machine and that Veterans Today's Editor Gordon Duff is featured extensively on the Iranian funded propaganda machine PressTV as a analyst. Having discovered this I told a few friends about what I found and put it in the back of my mind in the "don't trust this" folder.
Recently I learned that political renegade and liberatarian poster child Jesse Ventura was going to join RT / Russia Today and to have a deep hard hitting political show. Interesting I thought, and frankly a slam to his credibility in my mind. The truth be told I enjoy Ventura and I think he has done a lot for exposing the alternate governmental structures and conspiracies which seem to flourish in today's world. As Governor of Minnesota I think he did some things really well and made a huge difference, but RT? What is he thinking? I've been asking myself that very question since I learned of this and I figured I should explore some of the information which is available about Russia Today in hopes someone will pass along this information to Governor Ventura and maybe, just maybe, he will rethink this. I also wanted to share this information in hopes that people will really take a long hard look at RT and Veterans Today as news sources.
What I am NOT saying is that Gordon Duff or Jesse Ventura are shills to these propaganda machines. I suspect they are well intentioned individuals who are taking advantage of opportunities they feel will spread their messages, both good and bad. That being said I think their association with these news sources does hurt their credibility, and I think that's a fair assessment.
So who is Russia Today really?
Russia Today was founded by RIA Novosti, the state owned news agency of Russia, in 2005. RT also shared space with RIA Novosti though it maintains a separate operational environment. In 2012 RT moved to a new state of the art broadcast facility which was subsidized by the Russian government and in 2013 Vladamir Putin issued a presidential decree dissolving RIA Novosti and formed a new information agency called Rossiya Segodnya or translated Russia Today. RT was very quick to point out that Rossiya Segodnya was a seperate entity, but as of Dec. 31st 2013 Margarita Simonyan, the Editor and Chief of RT News, was appointed as Editor and Chief of Rossiya Segodyna which she holds along with her day to day responsibilities with RT effectively giving Simonyan editorial control over both operations at once.
At its founding RT received a total of $30m from RIA Novosti along with additional funds which have been traced back to banks and companies who are supporters of Putin. From that point the RT annual budget has grown to over $300m and has been protected by order of Vladamir Putin. You can see more about that here.
The Christian Science Monitor Reported:
According to Russian media, the Kremlin funds RT to the tune of about $300-million annually, and Putin last year personally forbade the government to slash its funding.
In the UK, OFSCOM which is the standard and practices entity has investigated RT to determine if the news they are presenting is unbiased and factual. Apparently OFSCOM has investigated RT no less then six times.
According to the OFSCOM spokesman
Ofcom has launched an investigation into whether this programme about the situation in Ukraine, which included anti-western comments, was duly impartial.
What I really found disturbing was a section of a Buzzfeed article about RT:
Soon after joining the network, the current and former employees said, they realized they were not covering news, but producing Russian propaganda. Some employees go in clear-eyed, looking for the experience above all else. Others don’t realize what RT really wants until they’re already there. Still others are chosen for already having displayed views amenable to the Kremlin. Anti-American language is injected into TV scripts by editors, and stories that don’t toe the editorial line regularly get killed.
This is consistent with other statements made by former reporters who left RT. Many cited strict editorial control and the silencing of alternate viewpoints as primary motivations for their departure.
That being said it seems to me that these constant RT generated headlines about conspiracies, UFOs, and the decline of the west are being very carefully crafted and frankly having the desired result but should we trust them? Probably not at this point and after researching it and trying to make sense of it I really need to question what Ventura is thinking because his association with such an organization would be counter to his beliefs, at leas the ones I am aware of. But don't believe me, do the research. To that end I am providing a list of just a few articles about RT at the end of this article.
So who is PressTV?
Another popular information source appears to be PressTV and one of their self styled analysts Gordon Duff (Editor of Veterans Today). Duff, who is a controversial figure, is also a go to source for conspiracy headlines so lets explore who he is a Analyst for.
PressTV was founded in 2007 and is a division of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting or IRIB. IRIB is independent of the Iranian government butit has been reported they hold a strong loyalty to the current conservative political group as well as the Revolutionary Guard. (More details are here at the bottom of the article). It is also important to point out that the head of IRIB is appointed by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei directly and that IRIB/PressTV is the only legal news source in Iran. PressTV has also been the source of a fair amount of controversy, the claims of which are too numerous to place in this article so I would suggest you check out this article for more information.
So how does Gordon Duff play into this? Well from time to time Gordon Duff functions as an official analyst for their broadcasts and speaks authoritatively on military subjects, politics and a whole host of other subjects. He is seen or at least presented as PressTV's commentator on these subjects. A case in point is an article on Veterans Today called "Armageddon watch over Syria" which is by "Gordon Duff and Press TV." What's particularly interesting about that article is that you have a article co-written by PressTV (an Iranian propaganda machines) which has the American flag in its background. The juxtaposition Americanism with Iranian propaganda is fascinating and very intentional but what is more interesting is the fact that Duff and others from Veterans Today participated, in Syria, at a counterterrorism conference sponsored by PressTV - you can read the article here.
Since we have no budget to be corporate raiders to buy out the Murdoch media empires of the world, we have to focus on the tools that we do have. The main ones included the alternative media where we have made great gains. Press TV has been clawing its way back out of the sanctions rabbit hole, and Veterans Today has seen a huge growth in its radio audience over the last few months, with 5 million viewers a week now.
This excerpt seemed to place Veterans Today solidly in cohoots with PressTV. It is also important to point out that the sanctions which are referenced were due to state sponsored terrorism charges and the outright falsifications of news reports.
Perhaps the most stunning revelation about Veterans Today and Gordin Duff was his own admission that at least 30% of what is published by Veterans Today and 40% of what Gordon Duff writes is false. Don't believe me? Too shocking for words? Listen to Gordon Duff and his own words...
So what are we to do? RESEARCH! No one out there has the full truth and as a person who is interested in the subject you need to find it yourself. Do the research and come to your own conclusions. Don't let these subjects be spoonfed to you because you can't always trust the person holding the spoon. But one thing is certain - I would not trust RT, Veterans Today or Gordon Duff. That's just my opinion.

So what is the Process Church, or the The Process Church of the Final Judgement? Originally founded in the 1960's in London, the Process Church was a splinter group of the Scientology movement founded by Mary Anne and Robert DeGromston. Although they were a splinter of Scientology the group was later classified as "suppressive persons" by L. Ron Hubbard in 1965. In 1966 the group moved to Xtul in the Yucatan where they developed the "Processing Theology." A theology were they worshiped by Christ and Satan believing both entities would eventually come together to judge the world and eventually execute final judgement.
The church has also been linked to CIA mind control experiments as well as general mind control activities and has a very interesting roster of members including Charles Manson, David Berkovitz (The Son of Sam), and several other notorious members. All of whom, it has been claimed, are mind control victums.
Vincent Bugliosi, the prosecutor during the Charles Manson family trial, stated in "Helter Skelter" that Manson appeared to used much of the philosophy from the Process Church in his beliefs. This is further supported by the fact that representatives of the Church visited him in jail after his arrest. According to those representatives, the purpose of the visit was to discover if Manson had any contact with the Church or received any literature about the Church. The group published an extensive article about Manson and their jail visit in the The Process magazine's special "Death" issue.
Mary Tyler Moore?
It is unclear if Mary Tyler Moore was actually a member but a recently unearthed photo shows her in firm possession, and flaunting, a copy of the Process Magazine while visiting Merry Old England. If so she would not be the first Hollywood star to be attracted to such and organization. Jane Mansfield was known to have been an associate of Anton LeVay and there are many photos of them together. The late entertainer Sammy David Jr. was also a member of LeVay's organization and in a letter to Dr. Michael Aquino, Davis accepted membership 3/17/73 and was formally admitted 4/13/73.
Mary Tyler Moore is one of the most beloved actresses of her generation, and while possessing a copy of The Process does not mean she was a member, posing with it does makes a statement. What this does mean is that she was aware of the organization and had taken the time to at least read the magazine which would be filled with Process Theology. The issue it's self, called the "The Sex Issue" dealt apparently with "Sex: Lucifer, Satan, Jehovah and the Grey Forces. Three Paths and a Quagmire" which dealt with sex in connotation of its relationship to the Process Churches three gods.
While there is no evidence Mary Tyler Moore ever did join the cult, it is again an interesting side note to history to be seen and pose with their magazine. Makes you wonder...
(From the Wikipedia)
The term "processean theology" distinguishes these ideas from the process theology derived from the thoughts of Alfred North Whitehead.
In Xtul was the first "channeling" of God. After Xtul, Jehovah was the only recognized God. Later, with Jehovah, Lucifer and Satan were recognized as "The Three Great Gods of the Universe" and Christ as the Emissary to the Gods. The Three Great Gods represent three basic human patterns of reality:
- Jehovah, the wrathful God of vengeance and retribution, demands discipline, courage and ruthlessness, and a single-minded dedication to duty, purity and self-denial.
- Lucifer, the Light Bearer, urges followers to enjoy life to the full, to value success in human terms, to be gentle and kind and loving, and to live in peace and harmony with one another. Man's apparent inability to value success without descending into greed, jealousy and an exaggerated sense of his own importance, has brought the God Lucifer into disrepute. He has become mistakenly identified with Satan.
- Satan, the receiver of transcendent souls and corrupted bodies, instills in followers two directly opposite qualities; at one end an urge to rise above all human and physical needs and appetites, to become all soul and no body, all spirit and no mind, and at the other end a desire to sink beneath all human codes of behavior, and to wallow in a morass of violence, lunacy and excessive physical indulgence. But it is the lower end of Satan's nature that men fear, which is why Satan, by whatever name, is seen as the Adversary.
In between these Three Great Gods and man, is an entire hierarchy of Gods, beings and superbeings, angels and archangels, demons and archdemons, elementals and guides, and fallen angels and watchers.
The Process believes that, to varying degrees, these "God-patterns" exist within everyone. The main doctrine of The Process is the unity of Christ and Satan, who exist as opposites. Jehovah and Lucifer exist as opposites and when Christ and Satan are united, this will unite Jehovah and Lucifer.
In the original 1960s literature of the church, Christ, Lucifer, Satan and Jehovah were all arranged on a mandala, with Christ at the top opposite Satan on the bottom and Jehovah on the left opposite Lucifer on the right.
(The descriptions of the Gods comes from a teaching called 'The Hierarchy' published in December 1967, as a part of 'The Tide of the End'.)

There has recently been a lot of buzz which has emerged about a interesting object found in a SOHO image from the LASCO C3 camera which has been making the rounds as a new UFO sighting and in some circles even being blamed for the destruction of a US Air Force weather satellite. While the object is very interesting and does present some fascinating implications it appears to be more likely some sort of space platform in use by the ever present "Secret Space Program."
So what's the deal? In a March 1st image off the SOHO satellite you can clearly see this object fairly well illuminated sitting within the field of the camera. At first glance it actually bears a striking resemblance to the DRAX Industries space station seen in the film Moonraker. The general design of the object has lead me to think it might be a space platform of some sort, in fact its design is erely similar to an early USAF / NASA design for the Multimodule Operational National Multipurpose Space Station which was port forth in the early 1960's.
Based on its general design it would appear to be a platform with multiple solar panels and modules, most likely very human in design. But its design is not what is truly perplexing. What is more interesting about this object is that it can only be found using the LASCO C3 camera. The LASCO C2 camera does not seem to display the object.
So why would that be? To understand that we need to look at the LASCO C3 vs. the LASCO C2 cameras. According to SpaceWeather.com the main difference is field of view:
LASCO (Large Angle Spectrometric Coronagraph) is able to take images of the solar corona by blocking the light coming directly from the Sun with an occulter disk, creating an artificial eclipse within the instrument itself. The position of the solar disk is indicated in the images by the white circle. The most prominent feature of the corona are usually the coronal streamers, those nearly radial bands that can be seen both in C2 and C3. Occasionally, a coronal mass ejection can be seen being expelled away from the Sun and crossing the fields of view of both coronagraphs. The shadow crossing from the lower left corner to the center of the image is the support for the occulter disk.
C2 images show the inner solar corona up to 8.4 million kilometers (5.25 million miles) away from the Sun.
C3 images have a larger field of view: They encompass 32 diameters of the Sun. To put this in perspective, the diameter of the images is 45 million kilometers (about 30 million miles) at the distance of the Sun, or half of the diameter of the orbit of Mercury. Many bright stars can be seen behind the Sun.
This could indicate the object, which is a dead ringer for the 1960's Multimodule Operational National Multipurpose Space Station, could have been out of the field of view of the C2 camera. It could also indicate that there is some sort of "cloaking" device which was defeated by the C3 camera for some reason. The objective fields of view of the camera's so different it would most likely appear the object is much further out from the Sun.
So is the object alien? Most likely it is not. Many sites are reporting this object as being a UFO, which in some ways it is since we cannot readily identify it, but due to its composition and overall design it feels very human. I can't tell you why it is there or what it is doing but its design is human. I know its very easy to jump on the bandwagon and claim this is a alien object. Frankly that's the easier answer, if its not then we have a lot of figuring out to do...
What's also interesting is that more and more of these objects are being found, which would indicate the "Secret Space Program" is very far along and our solar system is dotting with platforms and ships making the rounds. In human terms, this is what we should expect. If the "Secret Space Program" is indeed out there, which I have argued time and time again, then we should be finding ore of these and honestly we are. Everyday, at an accelerating rate, we are finding more mysterious and obviously human objects which we were not told about. It also seems to me to indicate that they are growing and preparing for something.

The information provided in this four hour lecture is from Dr. Lawrence Dunegan, a pediatrician, who was invited to attend a lecture by the prominent doctor Richard Day M.D. in 1969. According to Dunegan, before the lecture started Dr. Day told the room of about 80-90 doctors all about a series of changes they would witness in their lifetime. The changes were being by “The Order” as he called it or you might speculate he was speaking what we now know it now as the New World Order or Illuminati. Dr Day also told the doctors that he was free to speak at this time because everything was in place and nobody could stop them now that the project was underway.
Recording devices were not allowed in the room and taking notes of the lecture was prohibited. Fortunately, Dr. Dunegan had a near photographic memory and was able to produce notes after he got home from the lecture. Those notes stayed in his desk for more then 20 years until he pulled them out and decided to make audio tapes of the information in 1989. Was it a coincidence that Dr. Day died the same year that Dr. Dunegan began distributing this information on audio tapes in 1989? Seems very coincidental.
After the lecture was completed, Dr. Day gave the doctors a hypnotic suggestion to the entire room to forget everything they heard, but be ready for the coming changes. According to Dr. Dunegan, after the lecture when he asked some of his friends that were in the room what they thought of the lecture none of them could tell them what it was about!

The enigma of Alternative Three has been debated, argued, and contested for more then 30 years since its original broadcast in 1977. Originally conceived of as a War of the World’s style broadcast, it stunned a nation and later stunned the world. The ideas presented in it so dangerous and radical that the film was subsequently banned in at least three countries and labeled to dangerous for television in the United States. For many years it has been labeled a hoax, and disinformation but what if it was true? For more then 10 years I have sought to prove its reality, carefully mapping the events in Alternative Three to real life events then working to expose the elements of the Secret Space Program which support it. You probably knew all that, so what’s the big deal? Well to put it bluntly, there is now strong evidence of an actual Alternative Three research study carried out by FDR at the height of World War 2, its aim was to come up with a plan for massive resettlement assuming the Earth had been irrecoverably damaged as a result of the expanding war. One of the conclusions? We needed to move massive populations off world to Mars or Venus.
I know what you are thinking.. Hang on a minute… Yes you heard that right – A covert government plan to relocate massive populations off the Earth to Mars or Venus.
The project called the “M Project” or Migration Project was commissioned by FDR in 1940 with a black, unrecorded budget, of $180,000 and took over four years to complete. It was headed by an emanate Anthropologist named Henry Field and employed 32 researchers and nine secretaries. The project was handled covertly because as FDR himself put it “we are dealing with political dynamite.” What is more interesting is that this covert study was carried out with no leaks what so ever, as the lead researcher Henry Field later pointed out after the report had been declassified. He later published a part of the study as “M” Project for FDR: Studies in Migration and Settlement, a book you can now buy, shockingly, on Amazon. It has also been carefully hidden in plain sight for more then 70 years.
The main objective of the study was where to place millions of refugees intelligently and FDR at the time stressed this was a military as well as civilian problem because as he put it “the disconnected can and will cause trouble, serious trouble.” This is a truism we see everyday in the headlines of the world’s papers and in the discussions around the water cooler. At the time no climate or topography was considered too harsh and the researchers discussed everything from the Belgian Congo to Tanganyika eventually arriving at the conclusion that “temporary” housing could be established on Mars or Venus but apparently they felt Alpha Centauri, our closest celestial neighbor was a bit too far and was deemed impractical. In fact the interplanetary option was discussed at some length with an entire chapter devoted to it called “Interstellar Migrations.”
So what does this really tell us? What we are seeing is the early attempts and solving the Alternative Three problem. One of the viable solutions for which, after an exhaustive four years of study, was to move large populations for Mars. Sound familiar? That’s probably because you have watched or read about Alternative Three and it would appear in the late 1950’s this plan was dusted off from its dust shrouded slumber and given serious consideration. I would argue that in the years following that fateful 1959 meeting and the disclosure of the collapse of the phytoplankton carbon dioxide scrubbing system that “M” was enacted bring us to today…
What’s also interesting is that the studied concluded that Venus was also a viable option. This fits in well with the theory I have presented that a second, competing, off world group is based there. The researchers believed that Venus would work though it would be the harder road, so it stands to reason others may have come to a similar conclusion and chosen it because they knew we would take the easy button which is represented by Mars.
At this point we have the evidence, we know that the Alternative maps to real world events. We have heard the whistle blowers and see the photos of the secret space program. What we have been missing all this time is the genesis, which I had concluded was that 1959 meeting of the American Chemical Society and while I still believe our own interstellar migration started as a result of that meeting, the M Project clearly shows even in the 1940’s people in power were thinking of mass migrations and ecological collapse be it due to war, plague or industrialization. Project Argus, Lunex, Horizon, the DUMBs, COGs, and all the other elements now all fit together as I laid out in The Secret Space Age: Secret Space Programs, Breakaway Civilizations, Nazi UFOs, SDI and Alternative Three.
It’s going to now start getting really interesting…
Thanks TAL for the FYI!

In the small farming village of Novo Selo Stipsko in Macedonia, a farmer named Trayche was digging a new part of his field when he made a shocking discovery. While working in his field Trayche’s plow hit an object buried just below the surface. Curious he investigated and found a box which had been buried some time ago and oddly chained shut. He quickly broke the box open and found a strange skull that appears to to be from a werewolf or ‘Varkolak’ in the local language. Is it a werewolf? The skull has some striking features.
The story of the farmer spread and Filip Ganov, a Bulgarian student who was in the Novo Selo Stipsko doing research on the Balkan Wars. Ganov was very curious about the discovery and contacted Trayche who let Ganov examine the box and take photos.
Garnov sent the photos to a wildlife expert in Bulgaria who believes that the skull was indeed from a wolf but not necessarily a werewolf. Instead, the expert believes the wolf was suffering from something called Paget’s disease which is a genetic disorder (also found in humans) that causes misshapen bones and enlarged skulls.
The skull is an interesting find and displays both canine and human features, features which probably caused some concern amongst the locals who were raised on Eastern European folklore. The chain on the box is a good indication so whoever buried it believed it was a creature they didn’t want roaming around. The main question is what does the Cryllic onthe inside of the box say? Those details were not given but would probably help the story.
Is it a werewolf? I’m not sure but it needs more exploration for sure!

The Congregation for the Light calls Manhattan’s Murray Hill area home and preaches the impending end of days and the power of karmic retribution to men and women who believe they descend from an Aryan super race that once populated Atlantis, reports the New York Post.
With all the hallmarks of a cult, it’s no surprise ‘the Light,’ as its 200 members call it, also has some disenchanted former members spreading tales of its sinister side.
Former member Paul Arthur Miller described to the Post a young adulthood full of indentured servitude in leader Tom Baer’s furniture factory, physical training for a doomsday that never seemed to come and a culture of homophobia.
‘The belief is that Planet Earth will be ending soon and we would have to defend our people and safeguard our food and supplies,’ 58-year-old Miller recalled to the Post.

One of the things which has always been perplexing about the Break Away Civilization was the notion of “Batch Consignments.” Batch Consignments was a term used in Alternative Three to describe the movement of individuals off-world for use as slave labor to construct bases on the Moon and Mars. The idea of Batch Consignments was to use effectively slave labor as a commodity work force for construction of the bases needed by the Break Aways for expansion.
On the surface the idea seems quiet reprehensible, people being forcibly relocated and forced to perform slave labor, but then again you are dealing with a group which does not necessarily hold human life in high regard, but it does make sense. It is cheaper to use slave labor then to use a skilled group of people to perform any task.
So here’s the problem – How do you prove that Batch Consignments exist? A relatively large workforce would be needed, the work would be grueling and the mortality rate would probably be high due to accidents, overwork and other causes. So you would need a constant supply of new people being kidnapped to provide the labor force. So where do you get large numbers of people over a long term? The answer, at least in part, may surprise you.
Ever year thousands of people go missing under mysterious circumstances. Accidents, murder, and many other reasons can provide the context. Recently there have been many stories about people kidnapped who spent decades in captivity before escaping to tell their story, but there are others which actually defy conventional logic.
Most batch consignments, if they exist, can be attributed to political instability in the third world. During many of the regional wars seen in Eastern Europe, Africa, and South East Asia instability and large numbers of displaced individuals provide a large source of labor. During these conflicts entire villages could disappear without a trace with little or no attention and the level of humanitarian catastrophe in the worn torn regions makes it almost impossible to catalog the number of people displaced, lost or just vanished.
During the Rwanda Genocide in 1994 more then 800,000 people were murdered and hundreds of thousands simply vanished and are presumed dead. This would represent men, women and children and some of those individuals could have become batch consignments very easily.
But there is another mystery which was discovered by researcher, and ex police officer, David Paulides. Paulides has undertaken research into disappearance clusters and his research has proved some very interesting results. On one hand he has documented numerous cases where, in National Parks, children have disappeared within feet of their parents only to be found miles away sometimes even over mountain ranges with no recollection of how they got to that location.
In other cases he has documented cases where people simply vanished leaving their cloths in a pile as if they were snatched from within their clothes. Their clothes simply simply piled where the person had been standing. In both cases dogs were unable to pick up the scent, which is strange, it was as if the person just dematerialized.
Whats more interesting is the locations of the clusters of disappearances. If we look at the map which Paulides has made, we can see that at least some of clusters are located near places like Tonopah/Area 51/Nellis, Edwards AFB, Sandia, as well as many other major installations which could be used for movement. In fact many of the disappearances are reasonably close to facilities documented on a map made by “TAL” dating back to 1990 where he documented secret underground bases and a secret underground rail network which links them. The match is pretty uncanny.
More over Paulides has documented numerous cases of disappearances inside National Parks, and when people inquire with the NPS about the disappearances? They are stone walled and told the National Parks Service does not keep records of disappearances. This lead Paulides and others to file FOIA requests which have as of yet provided no further information.
In fact on occasion researchers have even been intimidated by National Parks Service personnel when filling FOIA requests. So why the secrecy? One would think the NPS would be doing whatever they could to locate the missing campers or hikers. One would also imagine that, given the numbers of visitors, the NPS would be working hard to protect people which I think they do to some major extent but you still cannot escape the fact that many of these clusters are in National Parks. But that also makes sense.
If you want to harvest labor you are going to go where people are, and there are a lot of them in National Parks. They also provide a good cover – Well Bob went hiking and got lost case closed. But the patterns Paulides is finding is disturbing. As Paulides put it in an interview with George Knapp:
“People disappear in the wilderness all the time. We’re talking about something different. These are unusual things that don’t make sense, that happen to cluster together in three to four, sometimes as many as 20 to 30 people missing at one location.”
The numbers here, at least the numbers we know, are fairly small. Paulides has found about 400 cases so far of strange disappearances but that is what he has found. The actual number could be far higher, and is high enough that he has written four books on the subject. So I think he’s touching the tip of the iceberg.
He has also documented large number of disappearances of young people in Canada where young men and women have disappeared from native villages, and again there is no official comment.
Could these disappearances be linked? I think its possible especially when comparing his map to that of TAL’s map. It is very odd to me that even given the small geography TAL represented that there are clusters of missing persons around his facilities. That is just strange to me, but it also makes sense. You need to be able to take people somewhere for transport.
Will we ever know for sure that is whats going on? I don’t think we will but one thing is for sure – The next time I go into the wilderness or a National Park which is a hot spot I will be keeping a close eye on my friends and family.
