In July 1947, a flying saucer went skipping like a stone across the New Mexico desert. “Most people think the ship crashed in Roswell, but it only hit the ground before bouncing up and landing in Corona,” says Pat Jennings, ex-military UFO enthusiast and “Mercenary Genius Extraordinaire.”
Our route into town was opposite of the flight path, my wife and I barreling through the New Mexico desert at 65 miles per hour down US-285 from Clines Corners, a hiccup of a town.
It was my birthday weekend, and when my wife asked what I wanted to do, I just pulled out the itinerary I’d prepared and pointed to a map of Roswell.
It was like Mecca to a UFO freak like me, and I’d wanted to see it for myself since I was a kid.

So many people in Forteana profess to being open-minded on whatever happened at Roswell, New Mexico in the summer of 1947, the true nature of Bigfoot, whether or not life after death is a reality and…well, the list goes on and on. But, that’s actually not so – unfortunately. Time and time again I have seen researchers – in pretty much all aspects of Forteana – take that arms-folded, barriers-up approach when their cherished theory is questioned or doubted.
Are these people for real? Indeed, they are. I’m not saying I’m anything special, because I’m most certainly not. But, correct me if I’m wrong, the reason why Mysterious Universe exists, the reason why books are published every year on a mountain of mysteries, and the reason why paranormal-themed radio and TV shows exist is specifically because we don’t have the answers. If we did, I wouldn’t be writing these words right now, because I wouldn’t need to!
The exact relationship between the Reptoids below and the Sirusians above has yet to be conclusively explained or even coherently speculated about. These beings may be cousins, disconnected by the passing ages since their original time on Earth, or our Terran Reptoids may be visitors from Sirius. If the latter is the case, I don’t think their presence can be described as an “alien invasion” because for the majority of human inhabitants of Earth, these beings do not exist. I am not of the belief that the Reptoids are directly pulling the strings of global domination, as some of the more outlandish theories maintain, but rather are hidden residents that are here by prior arrangement or treaty.
The sprawling reaches of Denver International Airport (DIA) could serve as a spaceport that supports the arrivals and departure of Reptoid/Sirusian travelers. Built in 1994, the airport was fully operational as a civilian airport in February of 1995.… Read the rest
Today marks the 66th anniversary of the Roswell UFO incident and debate still continues regarding what exactly happened on that day. All we know for sure is something happened, and the subsequent confusion (some may say cover-up) in the press covering the event and contradictory statements from the US military has been fuel for speculation ever since.
Did the United States recover the wreckage of an alien craft or a weather balloon? Here’s what we know for sure (or pretty close to sure):
On July 8, 1947, Roswell Army Air Field Public Information Officer Walter Haut issued a press statement indicating that a “flying disc” had been recovered from a crash site on a local ranch by elements of the 509th Operations Group. Local newspaper the Roswell Daily Record ran with the story, publishing a front-page feature with the title “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch in Roswell Region”. Later that day, another statement was released, this time under Commanding General of the Eight Air Force Roger Ramey.… Read the rest
According to this story in the Huffington Post, there were actually two UFOs shot down near Roswell NM in 1947.
Curiously, the technology used to fly the UFOs (as described in the article) was contemporary with the technology used to shoot them down.
It would certainly be specular if the craft were extraterrestrial in origin. And it would be just as spectacular if the US Air Force employed 1980s-era weapons to disrupt 1980s-era flight technology in the 1940s.

A long-serving CIA agent has revealed a hidden file on the Roswell ‘UFO’ incident that was supposedly found at the site – and says, “It really happened.”
Speaking on the 65th anniversary of the Roswell incident, Chase Brandon, an agent who served 25 years with the agency, said that the information is concealed in a hidden vault within the agency’s Langley headquarters.
“It was in a vaulted area – there was one box that really caught my eye. It had one word on it: Roswell. I rummaged inside it, put the box on the shelf and said, ‘My God, it really happened’. It was not a weather balloon – it was what people first reported. It was a craft that did not come from this planet,” he stated.
For twenty-five years Brandon served in the Agency’s elite Clandestine Service as an undercover, covert operations officer carrying out foreign assignments involving international terrorism, counterinsurgency, global narcotics trafficking and weapons smuggling.
This is even stranger to me than the famous “it’s aliens!” conspiracy theory we all know and love. Thomas Harding writes in the Telegraph:

Devotees of science fiction have been convinced for decades that an alien spacecraft crashed in the desert of New Mexico – and that the American government covered up the recovery of extraterrestrial bodies. The so-called Roswell Incident of 1947 spawned conspiracy theories by the score.
But now, sadly for UFO spotters, a new book offers an entirely man-made — and some would say even more bizarre — explanation, featuring two of the greatest villains of 20th century history: the Soviet dictator Josef Stalin and the infamous Nazi “Angel of Death” Dr Joseph Mengele.
During a powerful storm in July, 1947, an object crashed near a rancher’s home in Roswell, New Mexico.
Roswell army air base initially said that a “flying disc” had come down, but hours later, as government scientists arrived in the area, it was stated instead that a weather balloon had crashed.
Rubber fetuses given out by pro-life students at high schools in Roswell, New Mexico were banned because they were “distracting the educational environment.” The want for the ban to be overturned has created a court case bringing to question where the first amendment lies in the situation. Matt Reynolds of OnPoint details:

The suspensions of seven pro-life students at two Roswell, N.M., high schools for distributing rubber fetuses have given birth to a lawsuit that takes the First Amendment protections for student speech into uncharted territory.
The students, who belong to a religious youth group called Relentless in Roswell, sued school officials last month, alleging their suspensions were unconstitutional. They were disciplined in February after they handed out hundreds of fetus dolls at Goddard and Roswell High Schools before classes.
The complaint describes the dolls as two inches in length and “the actual size and weight of a developing unborn child at 12 weeks’ gestation.” Attached to the dolls was a verse from the Bible: “For you formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.
It’s been a while since we’ve visited the realm of UFO investigation; so we felt when we did return, we would need to bring along a true expert in the field. Luckily for us, we found just that in Dennis Balthaser. Dennis actually lives in Roswell New Mexico, and has been studying the famous ‘Roswell Incident’ for many years. He has appeared on countless television and radio shows, and is often published in UFO Magazine.
This week we discuss: The Roswell Incident, Dulce underground base, Area 51, The state of Ufology today and much more. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
