From the CIA’s MindWAr to QAnon


Retired U.S. Army Major General Paul E. Valley

The purported origins of QAnon were shared by a retired U.S. Army Major General Paul E. Valley, who was interviewed by Mike Filip on AmeriCanuck Internet Radio of Canada, on October 14, 2019, where he explained:

Q-Anon is information that comes out of a group called ‘The Army of Northern Virginia.’  This is a group of military intelligence specialists, of over 800 people that advises the president.  The president does not have a lot of confidence in the CIA or the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) much anymore.  So the President relies on real operators, who are mostly Special Operations type of people.  This is where ‘Q’ picks up some of his information.[1]

Yeah, right…In 1980, Valley—who supported QAnon as a legitimate source about a “deep state” of elite satanic pedophiles—was then Commander of the 7th PSYOP Group and collaborated with Maj. Michael Aquino, then PSYOP Research & Analysis Team Leader and simultaneously the occult leader of the Temple of Set—an elite network of satanic pedophiles that operated out of the Presidio Army based near San Francisco—on an article about the use of what is known as psychotronics—a fancy word for purported occult powers—in warfare. The article, titled “From PSYOP To MindWar: The Psychology Of Victory,” was inspired by Col. John B. Alexander’s “The New Mental Battlefield” published in the same year. The MindWar paper argued for the application of Psychological Operations (PSYOPS) and “psychotronics” at the national level both in the target country and at home. Vallely and Aquino wrote:

Psychotronic research is in its infancy, but the U.S. Army already possesses an operational weapons systems designed to do what LTC Alexander would like ESP to do – except that this weapons system uses existing communications media. It seeks to map the minds of neutral and enemy individuals and then to change them in accordance with U.S. national interests. It does this on a wide scale, embracing military units, regions, nations, and blocs. In its present form it is called Psychological Operations (PSYOP).

In The Men Who Stare at Goats, about the CIA’s Operation Stargate, Jon Ronson has speculated that the same mindwar capabilities proposed by Stubblebine, John B. Alexander, Paul E. Vallely and Michael Aquino were used by the military in the bizarre torture methods employed in Iraq. These new proposed methods of psychic warfare represented the adaptation of psychotronics to military warfare, which contributed the First Earth Battalion, inspired by the New Age thinking that emerged from the influence of Esalen and the psychic research of the Stanford Research Institute (SRI). Willis Harman’s protégé Marilyn Ferguson was the author of the 1980 bestseller The Aquarian Conspiracy, which became regarded as the “handbook of the New Age.” Ferguson eventually earned numerous honorary degrees, and befriended such diverse figures as Buckminster Fuller, Ram Dass, Nobel Prize-winning chemist Ilya Prigogine and billionaire Ted Turner. Ferguson’s work also influenced Vice President Al Gore, who participated in her informal network while a senator and later met with her in the White House.

Alexander was director of the Advanced Theoretical Physics Working Group (ATPWG), which SRI remote-viewer Hal Puthoff and United States Army Colonel Philip J. Corso have both claimed that the ATPWG “operated at the highest levels of government.”[2] Corso, with help from William J. Birnes, published The Day After Roswell in 1997, with a forward from Strom Thurmond. Corso was a former military intelligence officer under General Charles Willoughby, ASC member, Shickshinny Knight and Black Eagle Fund conspirator implicated in the JFK assassination.[3] After joining the Army in 1942, Corso served in Army Intelligence in Europe, becoming chief of the US Counter Intelligence Corps in Rome. In 1945, he arranged for the safe passage of 10,000 Jewish World War II refugees out of Rome to the British Mandate of Palestine. He was the personal emissary to Giovanni Battista Montini at the Vatican, later Pope Paul VI, during the active period of the Nazi “Rat Lines.” Corso himself claims that he participated in Operation Paperclip.

Corso was on the staff of President Eisenhower’s National Security Council for four years, from 1953 to 1957. Dick Russell also reports that in 1954 Corso was involved in planning the overthrow of Guatemalan President Jacobo Arbenz Guzman. During the Korean War (1950 – 1953), Corso performed intelligence duties under General Douglas MacArthur as Chief of the Special Projects branch of the Intelligence Division, Far East Command. In 1956, Corso worked with West German paramilitary units connected to the spy network of Reinhard Gehlen.[4]

The Day After Roswell claims that an extraterrestrial spacecraft crashed near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947 and was recovered by the United States government who then sought to cover up the evidence. In 1961, he became Chief of the Pentagon’s Foreign Technology desk in Army Research and Development, working under Lt. Gen. Arthur Trudeau. In this position, Corso claims to have supposedly been assigned to oversee the reverse engineering material recovered from crashed alien spacecraft, resulting in several technological breakthroughs, including accelerated particle beam devices, fiber optics, lasers, computer chips and Kevlar. The book concludes with reproduction of information about Project Horizon, a 1950s US Army plan for bases on the moon.

Corso further claims that the real purpose of Reagan’s Strategic Defense initiative (SDI) was not to deflect a missile attack by the Russians, but to counter the threat posed by extra-terrestrials. As pointed out in “Saucers, Secrets and Shickshinny Knights” by Martin Davis, “This, of course, led to the end of the Cold War, when Reagan agreed to let the Soviets use Star Wars technology to defend the USSR against the same galactic menace.”[5]

Project Stargate

Scene from Men Who Stare at Goats, based on book by Jon Ronson, about the CIA’s Operation Stargate

Ferguson’s friend Lt. Col. Jim Channon was responsible for introducing New Age ideas that were to use psychotronic methods of Project Stargate as a form of psychic warfare.[6] Project Stargate was overseen until 1987 by Lt. Frederick Holmes “Skip” Atwater, an aide and “psychic headhunter” to Maj. Gen. Albert Stubblebine, the head of US Army Intelligence & Security Command (INSCOM). The unit was small-scale, comprising about 15 to 20 individuals, and was run out of “an old, leaky wooden barracks.”[7] Stubblebine was convinced of the possibility of a wide variety of psychic phenomena. He required that all of his battalion commanders learn how to bend spoons in the manner of celebrity psychic Uri Geller, and he himself attempted several psychic feats, in addition to walking through walls, such as levitation and dispersing distant clouds with his mind.

One of Stubblebine’s closest officers was Colonel John B. Alexander, a leading advocate for the development of non-lethal weapons and of military applications of the paranormal.[8] Alexander (born 1937) is a retired US Army infantry officer and colonel and a leading advocate for the development of non-lethal weapons and of military applications of the paranormal. He spent part of his career as a Commander of Green Berets Special Forces in Vietnam, led Cambodian mercenaries behind enemy lines, and took part in a number of clandestine programs, including of the notorious Phoenix program, where John Singlaub was his boss at Project MASSTER.

Alexander has long been interested in what used to be regarded as “fringe” areas. In 1971, while a Captain in the infantry at Schofield Barracks, Honolulu, he was diving in the Bimini Islands looking for the lost continent of Atlantis. According to psychic Edgar Cayce, Atlantis—located from the Gulf of Mexico to Gibraltar—was destroyed in a final catastrophic event circa 10,000 BC. The focus of the efforts of the Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE) has been in the Bimini Islands. With his former wife, Jan Northup, Alexander performed ESP experiments with dolphins, along with Dr.C.B. Scott Jones and Theodore Rockwell, a prominent nuclear engineer who has worked on naval nuclear propulsion systems and who also serves as vice-president of the U.S. Psychotronics Association.[9] Alexander was an official representative for the Silva mind control organization and also a past President and a Board member of the International Association for Near Death Studies.

Alexander was connected to Gordon Novel, a member of Permindex and a former associate of Kerry Thornley, the founder of Discordianism and also a JFK assassination suspect. Novel came to the attention of Garrison after allegedly making claims that he was an employee of the CIA in 1963 and knew both Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby.[10] In February 1961, Novel had been part of an action planned by Guy Banister and David Ferrie to procure weapons from a munitions bunker in Louisiana, owned by the Schlumberger Company. Although Garrison hired Novel as an investigator, Novel later admitted, “I was working as Garrison’s chief of security, while at the same time working for the White House to destabilize Garrison’s operation.”[11] Novel was somehow able to evade extradition attempts of Garrison, who concluded that Novel’s intelligence connections were projecting him.[12] As a private investigator, Novel also provided strategic advice to various celebrities including Michael Jackson and Jean-Claude Van Damme. Other peculiarities in his background included a conviction for illegally transporting electronic surveillance equipment in Nevada, pleading guilty to illegal possession of firearms in Georgia, and a charge of firebombing in Louisiana. He achieved further notoriety for making spurious claims about having seen a CIA photograph of J. Edgar Hoover engaging in homosexual activity. [13]

Alexander wrote the first proclamation of psychotronic technologies for military uses, titled “The New Mental Battlefield: ‘Beam me up, Spock’”, which was published in the December 1980 edition of Military Review, the professional journal of the US Army. Alexander’s article advocated the introduction of New Age and occult practices into US military intelligence, including remote viewing, telepathic communication, telekinesis, levitation, invisibility, even the power to kill without violence, and the power to induce hypnosis from a distance. Alexander wrote:

Psychotronics may be described as the interaction of the mind and matter. While the concepts may stretch the imagination of many readers, research in this area has been underway for years, and the possibility for employment as weaponry has been explored. To be more specific, there are weapons systems that operate on the power of the mind and whose lethal capacity has already been demonstrated.[14]

During his career in the army Alexander showed exceptional interest in esoteric techniques explored by Channon in his First Earth Battalion manual. A former Army master sergeant who is now a fixture on the human-potential circuit, Channon wrote a paper in 1979 called the “First Earth Battalion Operations Manual,” a long and loopy treatise on using New Age concepts to create a breed of mind-expanded future soldiers, “Warrior Monks,” who would utilize paranormal abilities and counterculture principles to better prevail in future conflicts with the nation’s adversaries. Heavy on graphics, it was partly inspired by the Whole Earth Catalog counterculture magazine, created by Stewart Brand, who in 1979, Brand had been assigned to investigate the Human Potential Movement for Task Force Delta. Channon served in the US Army as an infantry officer from 1962 to 1982 and had two tours in Vietnam. Channon particularly spent a good deal of time training under Michael Murphy, the co-founder of Esalen. In 1979 he wrote a 125-page “operations manual” for a proposed “First Earth Battalion.” At a subsequent 1979 briefing at the Fort Knox, Kentucky, officer’s club, Channon presented his concepts to “commanders”, who he claims immediately made him the first commander of the First Earth Battalion.

Channon’s First Earth Battalion slide show was brought to General Stubblebine by Alexander, and by 1981 Stubblebine established a secret “psychic spies unit” at Fort Meade, to test out such techniques as remote viewing. Working from ‘s blueprint, a Special Operations experimental team, dubbed “Jedi Warriors,” were trained in a wide array of Eastern oriental martial arts and meditation techniques, combined with strenuous physical training programs.[15] In 1983, the Jedi master provided the model and a name for the Jedi Project.[16] Stuart Heller, a New Age psychologist, who gave classes in stress control to corporate executives and officials at NASA, was brought in to provide similar schooling to the commandos.

Jedi Project’s aim was to seek and “construct teachable models of behaviorable/physical excellence using unconventional means.”[17] Warrior Monks would harness “basic technologies” like carrying baby lambs to greet the enemy and offer “automatic hugs”, they would attain the ability to pass through walls, operate based on spirit communication, feel plant auras, stop their own hearts without ill effect, changing the mind of the enemy through sub-sonic frequencies and acid rock music out of sync. Barbara Marx Hubbard, a delta psychologist, suggested that the First Earth Battalion could bombard the Soviets with psychic love rather than hate and suspicion.

After some controversy involving these experiments, including alleged security violations from uncleared civilian psychics working in Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIFs), Major General Stubblebine was placed on retirement. Stubblebine was later president of the Monroe Institute (TMI), which was founded by Andrija Puharich’s protégée Robert Monroe, after he started having what he called “out of body experiences,” now also commonly referred to as OBEs. The Monroe Institute (TMI) is a nonprofit education and research organization devoted to the exploration of human consciousness, based in Faber, Virginia. Upwards of 20,000 people are estimated to have attended TMI’s residential Gateway program during its first thirty years, with consumers of the audio industry founded on its research running into millions. In 1978, the U.S. military evaluated TMI and arranged to send officers there for OBE training.[18] In fact, according to Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America’s Psychic Spies, by Jim Schnabel, Stubblebine signed contracts with the Monroe Institute to test various hypnosis techniques to enhance remote viewer’s performance.

Stubblebine and Alexander are on the board of a “remote viewing” company called PSI-TECH. The company also employs Major Edward Dames (ex Defense Intelligence Agency), Major David Morehouse (ex 82nd Airborne Division), and Ron Blackburn (former microwave scientist and specialist at Kirkland Air Force Base). PSI-TECH has received several government contracts. For example, during the Gulf War crisis the Department for Defense asked it to use remote viewing to locate Saddam’s Scud missiles sites. Last year (1992) the FBI sought PSI-TECH’s assistance to locate a kidnapped Exxon executive.[19]

International Freedom Foundation (IFF)

Jack Abramoff (center)

After retiring from the Army in 1988, Alexander joined the Los Alamos National Laboratories and began working with Janet Morris, Research Director of the US Global Strategy Council (USGSC)—connected to Le Cercle, the umbrella organization of the Fascist International—chaired by ASC member Dr. Ray Cline, also a member of Ted Shackley’s “Secret Team” of rogue CIA agents involved in the JFK assassination.[20] According to David Teacher, author of Rogue Agents, Le Cercle, the umbrella organization of the Fascist International, was connected to four groups involving the Brian Crozier’s 6I’s American allies: Jack Abramoff’s International Freedom Foundation (IFF), the Institut d’Etudes de la Désinformation (IED), the Center for Security Policy (CSP) and the Institute of World Politics (IWP).[21]

In 1985, Abramoff became perhaps the nation’s most notoriously corrupt lobbyist when he pleaded guilty in 2006 to conspiracy, fraud and tax evasion. In 1985, Abramoff also showed up on a list of people helping Oliver North to influence the upcoming aid to the Contras.[22] Abramoff’s lobbying and the related scandals and investigation were the subject of two 2010 films: the documentary Casino Jack and the United States of Money, and the feature film Casino Jack, starring Kevin Spacey as Abramoff.

In 1981, Abramoff became chairman of the College Republicans (CR) where he made lifelong alliances with Grover Norquist, Ralph Reed, Paul Erickson, and Amy Ridenour, known to be lifelong Republican Strategists. During the Vietnam War, it was leftists who challenged power, Abramoff explained to reporters. But “now we’re the campus radicals.”[23] Abramoff joined in a plan developed by Norquist to transform the CR from “a resume-padding social club,” as one account puts it, into “an ideological, grassroots organization.”[24] Abramoff became famous for his declaration: “It is not our job to seek peaceful coexistence with the Left. Our job is to remove them from power permanently.”[25]

At Yale, Erickson served as the national treasurer of the College Republicans, whose staffers included Grover Norquist, Ralph Reed, and Jack Abramoff. “To every college Republican who contacted the national office,” Abramoff wrote in his autobiography, Capitol Punishment, “Paul Erickson was by far the most impressive person they had ever encountered in politics.”[26] “We were some of the biggest cold warriors ever,” explained Erickson, “but then the Wall fell. We won. There is a huge school within the conservative movement and the Republican Party that says you can’t look at these people through the same lens of the Cold War.”[27]

Erickson told the Rapid City Journal that he used to spend his summers helping freedom fighters. In 1982, he traveled to Israel while leading college students on a summer tour. While there, he witnessed the beginning of the 1982 Lebanon War. In 1983, he acquired provisions for insurgents fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan, including tents, medical kits, camels and mules. He said he had recently been helping Marshall Plan Charities with redeveloping Afghan villages. In 1990, he returned to Nicaragua to observe U.S.-backed Contra rebels stop fighting after the Soviet-supported President agreed to honor a popular election’s results.[28]

In 1983, Abramoff went to South Africa as chairman of the College Republican National Committee, a member of the Coalition for Peace Through Strength (CPTS) to begin an ongoing relationship with the extreme right National Student Federation (NSF).[29] Abramoff ran Citizens for America, a pro-Reagan group that helped Oliver North build support for the Nicaraguan Contras. Citizens for America staged an unprecedented meeting of anti-Communist rebel leaders known as the Democratic International in Jamba, Angola. This conference included leaders of the Mujahedeen from Afghanistan, UNITA from Angola, the Contras, and opposition groups from Laos. Out of this largely ceremonial conference came the IFF, in 1986. Abramoff helped to organize, and also attended the conference.

The IFF’s purpose was to counteract pressure in the US for sanctions on South Africa by denigrating Nelson Mandela and the ANC as Soviet agents.[30] Over half the IFF’s funding was provided by the South African DMI, the Directorate of Military Intelligence.[31] Amongst the participants at the IFF conferences were Theodore Shackley, William Colby, ex-Director of the CIA and a Cercle guest, and Oleg Kalugin, former head of KGB Counter-Intelligence.[32]

Abramoff was Director National Security Caucus Foundation, headed by long-time ASC head John Fisher and various other leading ASC veterans on the board.[33] From 1999-2003, Abramoff was secretary/treasurer of the Maldon Institute, an MI6, CIA and ASC-linked ultra-right propaganda front.[34] Abramoff is particularly close to the extremist Religious Right in the United States. In 2002, he co-founded American Alliance of Christians and Jews (AACJ), with Religious Right extremists Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell.[35]

In November 2011, Tucker Carlson hosted a book party in his Northwest Washington home to celebrate the launch of Jack Abramoff’s Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth About Washington Corruption From America’s Most Notorious Lobbyist. Carlson opened the night with a personal tribute to what Abramoff had endured, having spent three and a half years in a Maryland prison on charges of mail fraud, conspiracy, and tax evasion. “I raise a glass to Jack Abramoff and I’m proud to do so,” Carlson said.[36]

Abramoff now represents shady Ukrainian billionaire and Putin protégé Dmytro Firtash, who apparently maintains strong ties with Russian mafia boss Semion Mogilevich, and who was one of Paul Manafort’s biggest clients.[37] The acting US attorney in Chicago recently dubbed Firtash an “organized-crime member” and an “upper-echelon associat[e] of Russian organized crime.” Firtash is currently under indictment in US federal court for allegedly orchestrating an international titanium mining racket.[38]

Council for Security Policy (CSP)

Vallely has been close with former CIA director James Woolsey. Vallely and Woolsey shared membership on the neoconservative Council for Security Policy (CSP), founded in 1988 by Frank Gaffney, a member of the influential Council for National Policy (CNP), who worked for Richard Perle during the Reagan administration. The CSP, which uses the ASC’s motto “Peace Through Strength,” is funded by the Olin, Scaife, Carthage, Bradley, and a few other right-wing foundations.[39] Major weapons contractors such as Boeing, General Atomics, General Dynamics, Litton, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Thiokol, and TRW have also provided financial support.[40] The CSP’s activities are focused on exposing and researching perceived jihadist threats to the United States. CSP Advisory Council includes Heritage Foundation founder Edwin Feulner, and neoconservatives Midge Decter, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Dick Cheney, Douglas Feith, Richard Perle, Donald Rumsfeld, James Schlesinger, Paul Wolfowitz and Daniel Pipes.[41] Also on the CSP Advisory Council is Knight of Malta Joseph E. Schmitz, a former executive of Blackwater, the infamous American private military firm founded by CNP member Erik Prince.

Vallely and Woolsey have also been associated with the Intelligence Summit. The Summit was founded in 2006 by John Loftus, former U.S. government prosecutor and former Army intelligence officer. He began working for the US Department of Justice in 1977 and in 1979 joined their Office of Special Investigations, which was charged with prosecuting and deporting Nazi war criminals in the US. Loftus is an author of numerous books on the CIA-Nazi connection including The Belarus Secret, Unholy trinity: how the Vatican’s Nazi networks betrayed western intelligence to the Soviets, and The Secret War Against the Jews, both of which have extensive material on the Bush-Rockefeller-Nazi connection.

The Intelligence Summit is a powerful, secret organization of top intelligence officers from around the world. Several former CIA directors, former Mossad chiefs, former MI6 heads, former US Air Force Generals and other top intelligence officials are part of its leadership. The Chairman of the Intelligence Summit, is a top secret person, whose identity is never revealed and his name withheld for security reasons. The list of speakers and board members includes Michael Ledeen and Richard Perle.[42] The Advisory Council included James Woolsey, another former CIA director, John Deutsch, and Robert Spencer the director, Jihad Watch. In 2006, the Summit was exposed for ties to the Russian mafia through the Summit’s long-time financier Russian Zionist oligarch Michael Cherney. Cherney has been repeatedly linked with Solntsevskaya.[43] In 2003, Cherney founded the Jerusalem Summit, attended by Richard Perle and Frank Gaffney, Ehud Olmert and Benjamin Netanyahu.

According to Jack Sarfati, Woolsey was working with in 2001-2012 with remote-viewer Stephan Schwartz, who has links with the Institute for Noetic Sciences (IONS).[44] Woolsey appears to be close to UFO cultist Joe Firmage, Catherine Austin Fitts, and John Petersen. They all belong with the Arlington Institute, non-profit think tank specializing in predictive modeling of future events, that is, futures studies.[45] Petersen was a naval flight officer in the United States Navy, and has worked at the National War College, the Institute for National Security Studies, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the National Security Council at the White House. Fitts blew the whistle on the missing trillions at the Pentagon and collaborated with Michael Ruppert in exposing CIA drug trafficking.

Firmage also associated with John B. Alexander.[46] In 1999, Joe Firmage, quit USWeb, the US$2 billion company he co-founded, to promote what he says could be “the most important news event in 2000 years,” humanity’s potential rendezvous with extraterrestrials.[47] Firmage produced a 600-page manifesto entitled The Truth, posted on the Internet, which contained documents from a source he called the “Deep Throat of Cyberspace,” which he claimed may shed new light on UFOs and the Roswell incident, including what purport to be memos on the subject from President Truman and scientists Albert Einstein and Robert Oppenheimer.[48]

Human Potential Foundation

Dr C.B. “Scott” Jones

John B. Alexander’s cohort, C.B. “Scott” Jones, a veteran of US Navy intelligence, was the president of the Human Potential Foundation, which was funded by Laurance Rockefeller. Jones was one of the aides Senator Claiborne Pell of Rhode Island who founded the organization in 1989. Pell’s mentor was Skull and Bones member Averell Harriman. Also a member of the CFR, Pell was a very powerful figure in Washington, having served as Chairman of the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee from 1987 to 1994. Pell was mentor to former Vice-President Al Gore, with whom he shares an avid interest in the paranormal, with both supporting government-funded research into the matter. Pell was also a leading member of the Club of Rome as well as friend of its founder Aurelio Peccei.[49]

C.B. Scott Jones has been head of the CIA-connected Rockefeller Foundation for some time and chairs the American Society for Psychical Research (ASPR).[50] Jones worked in the private sector research and development community involved in the US government sponsored projects for the Defense Nuclear Agency (DNA), Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command. He has briefed the President’s Scientific Advisory Committee, and has testified before House and Senate committees on intelligence matters.[51]

From 1985 to 1991 C.B. Scott Jones was employed as a member of Pell’s staff for the stated purpose of studying paranormal phenomena, as reported in 1990 by The Washington Post.[52] Jones worked for Pell until it emerged that during the months before the Persian Gulf War, while in the employ of Pell, Jones wrote a letter to Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney, expressing concern that the word “Simone” appeared when audiotapes of Cheney’s speeches were played backwards. Jones had been investigating “reverse-speech therapy”. Addressing him as “Dear Dick”, Jones wrote to Cheney out of a concern that Simone might be a “code word that would not be in the national interest to be known.”[53]

The Human Potential Foundation’s activities included the studies of the social effects of alien contact and the most effective methods for lobbying Congress.[54] Its employees included Dick Farley, who resigned over concern that the Council of Nine exercised increasing influence over politicians and decision-makers. He wrote that The Nine “maintain a working network of physicists and psychics, intelligence operatives and powerful billionaires, who are less concerned about their ‘source’ and its weirdness than they are about having every advantage and new data edge in what they believe is a battle for Earth itself.”[55]

The Aviary

Left to right: John B. Alexander, Permindex member Gordon Novel, and John’s wife Victoria.

John B. Alexander and C.B. Scott Jones are members of what is called “the Aviary,” a group of intelligence and Department of Defense officers and scientists involved MILABS operations—black operations by rogue military-intelligence units who are said to stalk, harass, terrorize, kidnap, drug, gang-rape and mind-rape innocent civilians, using hypnotic mind-control programming to implant a false post-hypnotic “memory” that the episode was an “alien abduction.”[56] Each member of the Aviary bears a bird’s name. Alexander, the leader, is “Penguin” while Jones is “Falcon” and Hal Puthoff is “Owl”. Others include Ron Pandolphi (“Pelican”), who is a PhD in physics and works at the Rocket and Missile section of the Office of the Deputy Director of Science and Technology, CIA.

Alexander wrote UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities, in which he reviews major events in UFO history, finding both facts and flaws: “The gulf between the public’s opinion of UFOs and what most scientists believe regarding them is cavernous.” During the 1980s, Alexander organized an interagency group to explore the evidence, with participants from the military, CIA, and aerospace industry examining classic cases, including Roswell; the Gulf Breeze, Fla., photos; and unexplained incidents occurring within the U.S. strategic defense systems (such as sightings by NORAD installations), plus claims of reverse engineering on captured crafts; the Phoenix Lights, which Arizona’s governor at the time admitted witnessing; and the documented radiation poisoning suffered by Betty Cash and Vicky Landrum after their reported 1980 encounter near Houston. Determining that UFOs, while real, are “beyond current comprehension,” he sees the extraterrestrial hypothesis as too narrow. UFOs remain an enigma, he concludes, since “every time we think we have an answer, new observations make the problem more complex.”

Alexander married alien abduction researcher Victoria Lacas, who worked in association with C.B. Scott Jones. She, Stubblebine and his wife Rima Laibow, who claims to be an abductee herself, toured Europe and the Soviet Union, where they have established a prodigious UFO/Psi network.[57] Jones held the position of what was termed the consultant in international relations for a while beginning in 1989 with MUTUAL UFO NETWORK (MUFON), one of the oldest and largest civilian UFO-investigative organizations in the United States.

Alexander is a member of the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS), a privately financed research organization based in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, and operated from 1995 to 2004. It was founded in 1995 by real-estate developer Robert Bigelow, who set it up to research and advance serious study of various fringe science, and paranormal topics, most notably ufology. The group includes Alexander, his wife Victoria Alexander, Edgar Mitchell, Gordon Novel, Hal Puthoff, Bruce Maccabee, and airplane designer Burt Rutan. Some of the ufologists he has funded include Budd Hopkins, Bob Lazar, and Linda Moulton Howe, who is well known for her investigations of cattle mutilations, and her conclusion that they are of extraterrestrial origin. She is also noted for her speculations that the US government is involved with aliens.

Bigelow owns Skinwalker Ranch in northeastern Utah which is a focal point of scientific research into the paranormal. Called the “Strangest Place On Earth”due to its long history of strange and bizarre happenings.[58] The activity, as reported by hundreds of witnesses over several decades, includes UFOs, unusual balls of light, animal mutilations and disappearances, poltergeist events, sightings of Bigfoot-like creatures, living dinosaurs, and other unidentified animals, physical effects on plants, soil, animals and humans, strange ice circles, magnetic anomalies, and a vast array of other of anomalous phenomena. The area is also noted to have a Vortex or Portal where doorways to other realms or dimensions are seen as glowing tubes, and random holes or rips in the sky.

In 1974, the plant physiologist Frank Salisbury collected hundreds of UFO reports from residents in the Uintah basin region of Utah, which includes Skinwalker Ranch and a Ute reservation. According to Jeremy Corbell’s documentary, Hunt for the Skinwalker, Ute tribal members have recognized the paranormal phenomena occurring in the area for centuries. They characterize these events as the work of malevolent tricksters, similar to the ghostly “skinwalkers” of Navajo folklore.[59]

NIDS installed video cameras and other sensitive monitoring equipment, built new fencing and constructed observation posts manned with trained observers, in hopes of collecting evidence for scientific study. But to this day NIDS states publicly that none of the phenomenon occurring there has been recorded, even though the NIDS scientists have seen the reported phenomena. One NIDS scientist says, “It isn’t as simple as saying that ET’s or flying saucers are doing it. It’s some kind of consciousness, but it’s always something new and different, something non-repeatable. It’s reactive to people and equipment, and we set up the ranch to be a proving ground for the scientific method, but science doesn’t seem amenable to the solution of these kinds of problems.”[60]

Bigelow as a close friend Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat who was the Senate majority leader from 2007 to 2015, and who has long had an interest in space phenomena. It was largely at the request of Harry Reid, that Defense Department gave $22 million to fund the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, founded in 2007.[61] It was run by a military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo, from the Pentagon. On January 16, 2019, the Defense Intelligence Agency released a list of 38 research titles pursued by the program in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by Steven Aftergood, director of the Federation of American Scientists’ Project on Government Secrecy. One such research topic, “Traversable Wormholes, Stargates, and Negative Energy,” was led by Eric W. Davis of EarthTech International Inc, which was founded by Hal Puthoff. Another project called “Invisibility Cloaking” was headed by German scientist Ulf Leonhardt, a professor at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. Leonhardt’s research pertains to theoretical quantum optics, and in 2006 his work on theoretically creating “an invisible ‘hole’ in space, inside which objects can be hidden” was cited by Nature. Yet another title, “Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions,” was attributed to theoretical physicist Richard Obousy, director of the nonprofit Icarus Interstellar.[62] Project Icarus was launched in 2009 as a five-year theoretical design study for a fusion based starship.

The Aviary expanded to include almost anyone who supports or debunks UFO research that is in any way connected to the government, such as US Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) counterintelligence officer Richard C. Doty. One of their agents include a UFO researcher known as William Moore, who was introduced to John Alexander in 1987 by Scott Jones. Moore, a former Minnesota schoolteacher was the co-author of The Philadelphia Experiment and The Roswell Incident. In fact, Moore is credited with sparking popular interest in the now well-known Roswell incident.[63]

Moore confessed in front of an audience at a conference held by MUFON on July 1, 1989, in Las Vegas, how he was promised inside information by the senior members of the AVIARY in return for his obedience and service to them.[64] He admitted to have participated in the propagation and dissemination of disinformation fed to him by various members of the AVIARY. Three years later, in 1992, during an interview Moore informed the UFO community that he was still acting as a controlled informant.[65]

Moore also confessed how he was instructed to target one particular individual, an electronics expert, Dr. Paul Bennewitz, who had accumulated some UFO film footage and electronic signals which were taking place in 1980 over the Menzano Weapons Storage areas, at Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico. As revealed by Greg Bishop in Project Beta, Doty gave Bennewitz the “Project Aquarius” Teletype, being the earliest mention of a hoax that came to be known as the notorious Majestic 12 (or MJ-12) documents. MJ-12 was the supposed code name of a secret committee of scientists and government officials formed in 1947 by an executive order of US President Harry S. Truman. The purpose of the committee was purportedly to investigate the recovery of a UFO north of Roswell in 1947. Later it was discovered the Aquarius document was phony and had been prepared by Doty.[66] As Greg Bishop writes:

Here, near the bottom of this wordy message in late 1980, was the very first time anyone had seen a reference to the idea of a suspected government group called ‘MJ Twelve’ that controlled UFO information. Of course, no one suspected at the time the colossal role that this idea would play in 1980s and ‘90s UFOlogy, and it eventually spread beyond its confines to become a cultural mainstay.[67]

What came to be known as the “MJ-12 papers” first appeared on a roll of film in late 1984 in the mailbox of television documentary producer Jaime Shandera, who had been collaborating with Moore since 1982. Moore had also been contacted by Doty in 1980, who described himself as representing a shadowy group of 10 military intelligence insiders who claimed to be opposed to the UFO “cover-up.” In January 1981, Doty provided Moore with a copy of the phony Aquarius document with mention of MJ Twelve. Sydney Sheldon’s 1991 bestseller, The Doomsday Conspiracy, which fed fears of a government UFO cover-up, and for which James Hurtak served as “technical consultant,” relied on the MJ-12 papers as supportive evidence.

The MJ-12 documents were popularized by Paul Bennewitz who, as covered in the documentary Mirage Men, was a tragic case of a “useful idiot” of American intelligence. Bennewitz was also involved in spreading the belief of reptilian aliens that had begun to gain popularity in the 1990s. Bennewitz apparently became convinced he had located a secret alien facility that he called Dulce Base, after intercepting what he thought were electronic communications originating from alien spacecraft located outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The notorious Dulce Base, alleged joint human and alien underground facility under Archuleta Mesa on the Colorado-New Mexico border near the town of Dulce, New Mexico, is also not far from Maurice Strong’s Baca ranch. The Colorado-New Mexico border region had emerged as one of the major sites for the cattle-mutilation stories then current in the West. As noted by Michael Barkun, author of A Culture of Conspiracy: Apocalyptic Visions in Contemporary America, the area around Baca had already attracted the attention of people interested in the paranormal.

According to Bennewitz’s account, a treaty was brokered between the aliens and the US government, according to which the base was to be operated jointly by the aliens and the CIA. However, treaty violations on the part of the aliens led to open conflict. The aliens are of such power, however, that they cannot be removed. By 1982, Bennewitz had begun to spread his ideas about the Dulce base to others in the ufology community. Bennewitz wrote Project Beta in 1988, which was mostly concerned with how the base might be successfully attacked. In 1988, William F. Hamilton III and Jason Bishop III both visited Dulce and wrote extensively about the base. Hamilton described the aliens as “small humanoid beings [that] may belong to the class we know as Reptilia rather than Mammalia.” Bishop called them “descendent [sic] from a Reptilian Humanoid Specie.”[68] Thomas Edwin Costello, who claimed he had been a security guard at Dulce, called the aliens at Dulce “reptilian humanoids.”

Moore would later claim in 1989 that he began collaborating with AFOSI in spying on fellow researchers such as Bennewitz, and dispensing disinformation ostensibly to gain the trust of the military officers, but in reality to learn whatever truth he could glean about UFOs, and how the military manipulated UFO researchers. Moore claims that he tried to push Bennewitz, who had been in a mental health facility on three occasions after suffering severe delusional paranoia, into a mental breakdown by feeding him false information about aliens. Later it would turn out that some of the UFO documents given to Moore were forged by Doty and his collaborarors, or were retyped and altered from the originals.[69] As a result of Moore’s involvement, coupled with some surreptitious entries and psychological techniques, Bennewitz ended up in a psychiatric hospital.[70]

Ufologist Linda Moulton Howe was invited to Kirtland AFB by Doty in 1983. Howe is best known for her allegations that cattle are of extraterrestrial origin, and that the US government is involved with aliens. Howe had been working on a documentary on UFOs, and during her visit Doty showed her what he claimed were briefing documents prepared for the president of the United States and which discussed crashed saucers and recovered bodies of ETs, and promised movie footage would be provided. But when footage never appeared, Howe’s documentary was cancelled, which she now suspects was the intended purpose.[71]

In November 1987, Howe had a meeting with Captain Collins, which was also attended by John Lear, a former employee of the CIA front called Air America, the son of the famous inventor Bill Lear (the car radio, the Lear jet), and a candidate for the State Legislature in Nevada. Lear has also been a primary source for stories claiming that there are vast underground bases in the Southwest populated by aliens carrying out gruesome biological experiments on human beings, all with the approval of the US Government. At the meeting, Collins presented Howe and Lear with documents concerning MJ-12 and an alien held captive by the government. According to Howe’s affidavit, Collins spoke of having worked “behind the scenes” for many years with William Moore.[72]

Howe has supported the veracity of the famous fake video of an alien autopsy from the famous Roswell, which has reignited controversy since a “leaked memo” was allegedly sent to Bigelow from one of his physicists Eric Davis. The film was released in 1992 by British entrepreneur Ray Santilli, who claimed he obtained it from a retired US military cameraman while seeking archive footage of Elvis Presley in the US. Eventually, fellow film maker Spyros Melaris revealed in 2018 that they had actually faked the footage using animal organs and pig brains. The memo is believed to have been leaked from the archives of Edgar Mitchell.

According to the memo, after scientist Kit Green left the CIA, he was called into the Pentagon by a person in uniform who asked him to professionally evaluate the autopsy photos and reports. Green apparently confirmed the cadaver was real, and revealed that alien forensic tissue and organs were being stored at Walter Reed-Armed Forces Institute for Pathology Medical Museum in Washington DC. However British UFO investigator Philip Mantle, who has probed the footage for fourteen years, has branded it the “world’s largest hoax.” Mantle points out that Santilli film was not made or conceived until 1995, and therefore Green could not have seen what he claimed to have seen in the memo.[73]


Frank Gaffney

In November 2016, it was reported that Trump appointed Gaffney, also a notorious Islamophobe, to his transition team, to oversee the appointment of his national security advisers.[74] In 2016, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) labeled the CSP as a hate group and a “conspiracy-oriented mouthpiece for the growing anti-Muslim movement.”[75] Gaffney counts Rick Joyner as a “personal hero,” and the two work together to fight against the “Chrislam” movement, that seeks to combine both religions.[76] Gaffney has also been associated with David Yerushalmi for being responsible in spreading misinformation about Islam and for encouraging the enactment of anti-Muslim laws, including anti-Sharia legislation in the United States.[77] In 2010, James Woolsey and Joseph E. Schmitz, former executive with Blackwater and Knight of Malta, co-authored a CSP report that claimed sharia law was a major threat to the national security of the United States.[78]

The Military Committee Chairman for the CSP is retired Major General Paul E. Vallely, who wrote the 1980 MindWar article with Michael Aquino of the Temple of Set. During an interview on Veterans Today Radio Show with Stew Webb, Senior Editor Gordon Duff of stated that the CIA, Mossad and Saudi Intelligence created ISIS, and led by Vallely. Professor Jim Fetzer of VeteransToday further stated that Alan Sabrosky, “will have a report that a retired U.S. Army Major General Paul E. Valley, Commander of the 7th PSYOP Group, is guiding the terrorists and their operations against Assad.” Professor Jim Fetzer then asked Duff if he could confirm or deny the charge, after which Duff responded: “Vallely is the commander of ISIS, yes.”[79]

Recently, Vallely has been serving as a senior military analyst for Fox News. He co-authored a book with retired Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney, titled Endgame—Blueprint for Victory for Winning the War on Terror, published by Regnery Publishing, which borrows, philosophically from MindWar. In 2005, Vallely founded a conservative political organization called Stand Up America US, that promotes the following issues: “First amendment rights, Second amendment rights, strong national defense and secure borders, national sovereignty, support of the armed forces, individual liberties and personal responsibility, fiscally responsible, limited government.” It consists mostly of links to far-right and Islamophobic news stories from conservative news outlets, and endorses the views of Glenn Beck. Vallely also hosted a radio program on Stand Up America, in which he regularly invited as guests neoconservatives and hardliners like Michael Ledeen.

In his position as FOX News military analyst from 2001 to 2007, Vallely unwaveringly promoted the US wars of naked aggression against Iraq and provided the personal defense of Donald Rumsfeld in the media as well as initiated a cover-up of the Valerie Plame affair. Vallely has continued to serve in disinformation of all kinds. As the Institute For Policy Studies (Right Web) writes:

Retired Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely is a former military analyst for Fox News and is the host of the conservative radio show, “Stand Up America.” Vallely, who serves on the boards of a number of hawkish policy groups that have pushed interventionist U.S. policies in the Middle East as part of the “war on terror,” was one of several retired military figures who was involved in a controversial Pentagon program aimed at disseminating favorable views of U.S. policies in the Iraq War by debriefing analysts like Vallely before their appearances on TV news programs.[80]

Some of his public statements have caused controversy, such as saying “we are not going to permit” a Shiite victory in an Iraqi election, and claiming that the war on terror is a war between Islam and Judeo-Christianity: “That’s what’s going on. If you don’t understand that, then you don’t get it.”[81] Vallely has recently lent his support to an organization called Veteran Defenders of America. In his letter of support he stated that, “Perhaps the greatest threat to our safety and liberty is the threat of radical Islam. This threat goes well beyond the threat of terrorism. Islamists, both inside and outside of America, are looking for any and every way to infiltrate and subvert our country through what is known as “stealth jihad.” He encourages US civilians (veterans) to be “eyes and ears of freedom, because we know freedom isn’t free.”[82]

Vallely is also a supporter of the Jerusalem Summit organization and an advocate of the its proposal to “relocate”/”resettle” Palestine and the Palestinian people to surrounding Arab countries as a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and to bring about the organization’s belief “Billions of people believe that Jerusalem’s spiritual and historical importance endows it with a special authority to become a center of world’s unity… that one of the objectives of Israel’s divinely-inspired rebirth is to make it the center of the new unity of the nations, which will lead to an era of peace and prosperity, foretold by the Prophets… Just as in the past the Free World stood together against Fascism and Communism, so it today must do to combat the third challenge: radical Islam.”[83]

Trump also promoted Michael Glassner, who formulated Trump’s infamous Muslim ban. A longtime aide to former US Senator Bob Dole, to deputy campaign manager, Glassner helped to hire former Scott Walker campaign manager Rick Wiley as well as former Chris Christie campaign manager Ken McKay. In 2014, Glassner joined the pro-Israel lobby, American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) where he was the Southwest regional political director. In February 2016, Glassner said, “My interest in pro-Israel politics had grown exponentially. Particularly since 9-11, which represented a real credible threat to all Americans and in particular as a Jew, I felt very strongly about the threat of radical Islam and so I became more and more involved with AIPAC.”[84]

Retired General Michael T. Flynn, who would become Trump’s controversial National Security Advisor, is the co-author of The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies, with Michael Ledeen, published in 2016. Flynn sees Islam as one of the root causes of Islamist terrorism, describing the religion as a political ideology and a “cancer.” He stated in a Twitter post that “fear of Muslims is RATIONAL” and included a video link claiming that Islam wants “80% of people enslaved or exterminated.”[85] Flynn has been a board member of ACT! for America, an American conservative political group founded in 2007 to “promot[e] national security and defeat terrorism.” Laurie Goodstein of the New York Times states that it “draws on three rather religious and partisan streams in American politics: evangelical Christian conservatives, hard-line defenders of Israel (both Jews and Christians) and Tea Party Republicans.”[86] ACT! members have introduced David Yerushalmi’s anti-foreign law bill (also known as anti-Shariah bill) in several state legislatures, accompanying it with “a public outreach blitz about the ‘threat’ of Sharia to America.”[87]

On April 25, 2018, it was reported that Trump intends to nominate Paula Dobriansky, another signatory of the neoconservative Project for a New American Century (PNAC), suspected of being behind the 9/11 attacks.[88] At the end of May 2018, Trump appointed another PNAC signatory, Gary Bauer, a close associate of Erik Prince, for the position of Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs. The commission is an independent body that tracks religious freedoms overseas. “We have seen a disturbing rise in anti-Semitism and persecution of Christians around the world, but especially in the Middle East,” Bauer, a veteran of top Education Department posts in the Reagan administration, said in a CUFI release on Thursday. “We must confront these two threats. Through this post, I will work to ensure the President and Congress are provided real policy options for contending with religious persecution in the world.”[89] Bauer also serves on the Executive Board of Christians United for Israel, the Christian-Zionist lobby group headed by John Hagee.[90]
