THE COMING GREAT DECEPTION—PART 37: Did Disney Almost Let The Cat Out Of The Bag?

Share this!

In the lead-up to the release of Mission to Mars, Disney had worked with an army of NASA scientists, astronauts, and technicians to produce the script for the film. Soon after, a row reportedly took place between NASA and Disney, as it seemed the space agency didn’t like what the film was set to insinuate: that a discovery had been made of past alien presence on Mars, that an artificial, sphinx-like “face” and pyramidal shapes near it (photographed by the Viking Mars probe) had actually been discovered, and that a twenty-five-year cover-up was being perpetrated by NASA and the US government in collusion with other world powers who were waiting for a mysterious “right time” to disclose the findings. Even former consultant to President Bill Clinton, Dick Morris, once told his call girl that documented evidence of past intelligent life existed on Mars and was concealed by the US military.[i]

One thing is certain: A cover-up of global proportions involving an alien presence—past and present—that includes supranatural sites, machines, devices, and entities has become abundantly convincing in recent years as expert testimony from astronauts and military personnel (including generals, pilots, aviation experts, and government officials), as well as documents on official government letterheads released through the Freedom of Information Act, have piled sky high. No reasonable person can any longer survey the known evidence and doubt that someone or something is operating outside the average man’s purview in league with at least some of the world’s elite. Smack dab in the middle of this conspiracy is not only NASA and other aeronautics and space administrations like the European Space Agency, but the Vatican. In some ways, this makes perfect sense. Official Disclosure of so-called extraterrestrial intelligence and habitable alien worlds, which is likely to be announced in 2013, according to scientists like Abel Mendez, who runs the Planetary Habitability Laboratory at the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo, “will have a profound effect on humanity.”[ii] This will be true both psychologically and spiritually, and, due to the nature of man, most of the world’s peoples will be looking for traditional religious leaders to put the revelation of exoworlds and “aliens” (whom we believe to be deceptive fallen angels) into context. As the most powerful Church on Earth with its own diplomatic corps of ambassadors posted throughout the industrialized nations of the world, the Vatican is uniquely positioned and has been actively preparing for this moment. According to Monsignor Corrado Balducci, who, during his life, was an exorcist, theologian, member of the Vatican Curia (governing body at Rome) and official mouthpiece of the Church concerning the reality of aliens here now, the Vatican has not only been closely following the phenomenon, but has also been using its embassies (Nunciatures) around the world to quietly compile material evidence on the extraterrestrials and their mission. The Vatican has never refuted this revelation from Balducci, and in further evidence of the covert research, in 1976, a high-profile attorney named Daniel Sheehan (with degrees from Harvard in government law and divinity and who had served as legal counsel on numerous famous cases, including the Karen Silkwood case, Iran-Contra, Three Mile Island, Watergate, and—with funds from Laurance Rockefeller—even as counsel for famous abduction researcher Dr. John Mack) sought to crack open the secret UFO files held in the vaults of the Vatican library. If anybody should have been given access to them, it would have been Sheehan, as in addition to his legal profession, he was general counsel to the United States Jesuit Headquarters in Washington DC. Furthermore, his request was made at the behest of the US government and then president of the United States, Jimmy Carter. During a 2001 radio interview, Sheehan explained what happened when he requested access to the Vatican’s highly guarded alien files:

It turned out that President Carter, then in 1977…had actually asked to have the information regarding the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence and the UFO phenomena sent to him. This procedure of asking the United States Congress—the Science and Technology Committee of the House of Representatives to have the Science and Technology Division of the Library of Congress Congressional Research Service— [to] gather all this information together, and make a determination about what information was going to be released to the public, and how much was going to be made available to Congress, could be made in that context. So, it was in that context that I was talking to Marcia Smith, and Marcia asked me whether, as General Counsel to the United States Jesuit Headquarters, there at their National Office in Washington DC, whether or not I could get access to the section of the Vatican library in Rome that would contain this information…on extraterrestrial intelligence and the UFO phenomenon. I was very pleased to try to do that. So I asked Father Bill Davis, who was the Director of the National Office at that time [1977], if I could follow that process of trying to get that information from the Vatican. He gave me his official approval, so I undertook that process, but much to my surprise in fact, and much to the surprise of Father Davis I might add, we were refused access to that particular portion of the Vatican Library. So, I sent back a second letter to the Jesuit who was the head of the Vatican library, and explained to him that this was an official request that had come from the Congressional Research Service of the Library of Congress—that it had come from the Congress of the United States, and that the President, himself, had wanted to get this information. So, I thought that would get us the information, but I received a second response from the Vatican Library saying no—the Jesuit National Headquarters would not be provided with this information. So, I had to regretfully report that back to Marcia Smith letting her know that I was not able to get it.[iii]

While the Vatican is certainly the biggest duck in the puddle with responsibility for controlling the flow of disclosure information for the world’s religious communities, it is not alone among consulting academia. For instance, the astronomers we mentioned earlier who are working to pinpoint the alien home bases by searching for their “Dyson Spheres” are funded in large part by the Templeton Foundation, a philanthropic organization interested in genetics and alien-sounding transhumanist aspirations as the path toward hybridizing humanity to posthuman. As mentioned earlier in this series (“Mount Graham and the L.U.C.I.F.E.R. Project: The Investigation Begins”), the Templeton Foundation has been funding a series of lectures titled, “Facing the Challenges of Transhumanism: Religion, Science, Technology,” at Arizona State University, which led to another undertaking launched in 2009 called the SOPHIA project (after the Greek goddess who helps man make contact with “them”), the express purpose of which is to verify communication with and to contact “Other-Worldly Entities/Extraterrestrials, and/or a Universal Intelligence/God.”[iv]

Another university that we suspect could be involved in the cover-up of the alien presence, artifacts, and/or mysterious technology is Pennsylvania State—or at least one of its well-known lecturers. This story goes back to 2005, when me and Steve Quayle were doing a series of Q-File radio shows, and suddenly a story shot across the World Wide Web of a giant, Leviathan-type creature that had been discovered in the polar ice of Franz Josef Land.[v] The colossal being was described as having horns “immense in dimension” that protruded from its head “with incredible length. The body is covered with a combination of coarse fur and what can best be described as ‘body armor’ (like an American armadillo) that protects its enormous joints and head.”[vi]

Both me and Quayle started investigating the story at the time—including analyzing the audio and video files—and within days, Quayle had tracked down the helicopter pilot who had flown over and filmed the Leviathan video. According to the pilot, Sony had created a docudrama hoax to virally promote the release of a new Playstation 2 game called, Shadow of the Colossus. Quayle reported his discussion with the pilot to George Noory on Coast to Coast AM that same week, but before the whole thing could be put to rest, new evidence unearthed by myself suggested that both me and Quayle might have only scratched the surface of a much deeper mystery or “bait-and-switch” designed to throw people off the trail of legitimate recovery efforts at or near the Franz Josef Land site. Among the most interesting and potentially telling pieces of the puzzle was a senior lecturer in anthropology and American studies at Pennsylvania State University, Abington College in Abington, by the name of P. J. Capelotti. Just before the so-called hoax was perpetuated, the professor had been conducting archaeological studies of Franz Josef Land and followed his research of the site by immediately advocating the need to establish international laws and/or treaties to preserve alien artifacts.

Among other things, Capelotti pointed out that:

The late biochemist and science fiction writer Isaac Asimov once speculated that the galaxy may contain 325 million planets with traces of civilizations in ruins. Perhaps our astronomers and their SETI stations are hearing only static through their radio telescopes because they are, in effect, listening for a message from the extraterrestrial equivalent of the ancient Maya or the Sumerians—dead civilizations that can speak to us now only through archaeology. Constructing a catalog of visual signatures of advanced civilizations will someday be within the province of aerospace archaeology. And with a potential cultural resource database of 325 million planets with civilizations in ruins, there sure is a lot of fieldwork to do “out there.”[vii]

Did Capelotti’s team discover something in Franz Josef Land and/or nearby expedition sites needing international protection…something that corresponds to artificial remains elsewhere in the galaxy that also need international protection…something big enough to, let’s say, employ Sony to concoct a cover-up? Was the helicopter pilot paid off or threatened against admitting the truth about what he had actually filmed? As extraordinary as that sounds, history has shown repeatedly how governments have participated in similar scenarios on more than one occasion. (Just look at the ridiculous Roswell weather balloon cover-up story.)

Another intriguing aspect of the 2005 case is how, like the pro-transhumanist Templeton Foundation’s funding to locate Dyson Spheres and “Other-Worldly Entities/Extraterrestrials” in order to promote the alien-hybridizing of man, Capelotti seems to have come away from his Franz Josef Land findings with a similar belief that “aerospace archaeology” is somehow connected with the next step in human evolution (something the film Mission to Mars also strongly suggested). In a now-removed Pennsylvania State Personal Webserver entry preserved on the “Aerospace Archaeology Wiki,” Capelotti wrote:

I prefer the term “aerospace archaeology” if for no other reason than it includes the study of sites from the space age, which I believe will become increasingly important to the study of modern man as technological possibilities continue their course of altering the possibilities of human evolution.[viii] (emphasis added)

What type of “technology” could Capelotti’s team have recovered in Franz Josef Land that convinced him that: 1) man’s evolution will be altered via “aerospace archaeology”; and 2) international laws and/or treaties must be established now to preserve alien artifacts?

Amazingly, a few years after me and Quayle’s investigation, Capelotti followed his 2005 expedition with a book published by McFarland Publishing titled, The Human Archaeology of Space: Lunar, Planetary and Interstellar Relics of Exploration, in which he discusses the Shadow of the Colossus Leviathan conspiracy and admits to making two voyages to the North Pole on board the Russian icebreaker Yamal at the time. “During the second voyage,” he writes, “as we returned from the pole, we landed by helicopter on Rudolf Island in the Franz [Josef] Land archipelago.”[ix] Capelotti describes his team’s excursion to the site to examine the remains of “an enormous aircraft,” which he then claims was a Soviet TB-3 bomber whose destruction the former Soviet Union had also “buried as deeply” as the government could. Again, how and why surveying a crashed airplane could be described as needing international laws and/or treaties to preserve “alien artifacts” as well as having the power to alter humanity via “aerospace archaeology” simply does not add up. Capelotti then takes several pages of his book to focus on me as he seeks to downplay our original inquiry:

This fairly benign aerospace archaeology—albeit in very extreme environment—was taken up as a central element of an argument for the presence of artifacts of extra-terrestrial intelligence here on earth. In a series of articles called “Stargates, Ancient Rituals, and Those Invited Through the Portal” and posted on the internet news site Raiders News Update, author Thomas Horn speculated that it was the disbelievers that were being conned, in this case by a specially created hoax that was in fact part of a larger cosmic conspiracy involving, you guessed it, me.[x]

After republishing a large part of my 2005 investigation in his Human Archaeology of Space work, Capelotti repeats his claim that nothing otherworldly was discovered at Franz Josef Land, but he does so, once again, without explaining how neither a crashed Soviet airplane could lead to the next step in human evolution nor why—following whatever was discovered in the Arctic Ocean north of Russia—this had provoked his immediate advocacy of international treaties to preserve alien artifacts.

It’s also interesting that, according to Capelotti, the former Soviet government wanted to “bury as deeply as possible” the massive craft they had discovered near where “Sony” had filmed the Leviathan. This attempt to capture, suppress, and control “alien artifacts” is the modus operandi of earthly governments and is a reminder of what happened in 2003 when archaeologists discovered a magnetic anomaly in the ground where the Euphrates River once flowed. It turned out to be (according to the archaeologists) the lost tomb of King Gilgamesh, the legendary ruler of ancient Sumeria known in the Bible as Nimrod and in the New Testament as the spirit of Antichrist that rises again during the end times. This is interesting, given that the same location is mentioned in the book of Revelation (chapter 9) where John describes the “bottomless pit” opening up. Does this imply the gate to the underworld is located near the Euphrates where ancient Babylon stood? Whatever the case may be, within hours of the Gilgamesh find, the United States military set up a barrier around the site and removed the materials, secreting them away to places unknown. Members of the media, who had been set to cover the Gilgamesh findings, suddenly found themselves without a story and in the dark. This included journalists from the Assyrian International News Agency,[xi] ABC News,[xii] and BBC News.[xiii] According to Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval, in Message of the Sphinx,[xiv] the US and Egyptian governments also blocked independent investigations around the Great Sphinx at Giza, where it is believed a “Hall of Records” or mythical library exists containing the lost knowledge of the Egyptians on papyrus scrolls and the history of the lost continent of Atlantis, which psychic Edgar Cayce claimed is buried beneath the Sphinx.



All this should catch the reader’s attention given how the Brookings Institution, considered the number-one policy think tank in the world with contributors from every field of science and industry, philosophy, and religion, published a secret report in the 1960s for the Committee on Long-Range Studies of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in which they argued in favor of NASA and other national agencies withholding from the public knowledge or evidence of alien artifacts. Brookings speculated that advances in technology and space frontierism would soon allow extraterrestrial exploration and even armchair astronomers to locate artifacts on other planets, and this was of great social concern to them. The report, titled “Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs” (provided with the purchase of this book from the publisher), describes how “artifacts left at some point in time by these life forms [intelligent aliens] might possibly be discovered through our space activities on the Moon, Mars, or Venus.”[xv] The policy setters then suggested such a discovery could lead to the acquisition of “unknown knowledge” or even “contact” with entities, and this was an uncalculated danger. They wrote:

Anthropological files contain many examples of societies, sure of their place in the universe, which have disintegrated when they have had to associate with previously unfamiliar societies espousing different ideas and different life ways; others that survived such an experience usually did so by paying the price of changes in values and attitudes and behavior. Since intelligent life might be discovered at any time via the radio telescope research presently under way, and since the consequences of such a discovery are presently unpredictable because of our limited knowledge of behavior under even an approximation of such dramatic circumstances, two research areas can be recommended:

  • Continuing studies to determine emotional and intellectual understanding and attitudes—and successive alterations of them if any—regarding the possibility and consequences of discovering intelligent extraterrestrial life.
  • Historical and empirical studies of the behavior of peoples and their leaders when confronted with dramatic and unfamiliar events or social pressures. Such studies might help to provide programs for meeting and adjusting to the implications of such a discovery. Questions one might wish to answer by such studies would include: How might such information, under what circumstances, be presented to or withheld from the public for what ends? What might be the role of the discovering scientists and other decision makers regarding release of the fact of discovery? (emphasis added)[xvi]

Of particular concern to the Brookings Institute was how fundamentalist Christians might react to—and even define—the issue through broadcast and print media. As such, they should be infiltrated and gradually steered toward a particular mindset, which the government could favor. “Consider the following,” they wrote:

The Fundamentalist (and anti-science) sects are growing apace around the world and, as missionary enterprises, may have schools and a good deal of literature attached to them. One of the important things is that, where they are active, they appeal to the illiterate and semiliterate (including, as missions, the preachers as well as the congregation) and can pile up a very influential following in terms of numbers. For them, the discovery of other life—rather than any other space product—would be electrifying. Since the main ones among these sects are broadly international in their scope and are, in some places, a news source, the principal distributors of mass media materials, an important source of value interpretation, a central social institution, an educational institution, and so on, some scattered studies need to be made both in their home centers and churches and their missions, in relation to attitudes about space activities and extraterrestrial life.[xvii]

The wide-ranging Brookings Institute report thus determined: 1) Aliens and/or their artifacts are likely to be confirmed this century on other planets, including Mars and the moon; 2) The impact on society and religion is unpredictable and potentially dangerous; and 3) Confirmation of alien intelligence should thus be withheld until the appropriate time, when the world’s masses have been properly “climatized” to the idea.

One is therefore left to conclude that, whether it is the tomb of Gilgamesh, the Hall of Records, the Franz Josef Land findings, or more recent alleged discoveries such as the underground Dark Pyramid fifty miles from Mount McKinley in Alaska, the idea that artifacts that may be connected to otherworldly knowledge and extrasolar locations exist on or beneath Earth’s soil is possible and even perhaps should be thought of as waiting instruments of end-times deception, something established long ago in anticipation of a final conflict when the armies of darkness shall gather in contest for the souls of humankind.

On this, the question for the reader is, if artificial structures are revealed on another planet similar to or linked with structures on Earth, will you lose your religion? Not if you understand where they originated and how they plan to use them in the COMING GREAT DELUSION (WATCH FOR THE DOCUMENTARY THIS FALL! 10 YEARS IN THE MAKING!).
