Author and researcher Jim Marrs joined George Knapp for a discussion on such topics as UFOs, remote viewing, and the JFK assassination. Marrs cited an interesting occurrence that predated the recent UFO controversy in Stephenville, TX-- the same small town had a publicized sighting all the way back in 1897-- when a large silver cigar-shaped object was spotted in the skies.
The JFK assassination and UFO secrecy share certain similarities-- they are both government conspiracies involving fabrication, and the destruction & alteration of evidence and testimony, he stated. Further, he noted that just before the assassination, Kennedy had issued an order for UFO files to be turned over to the CIA-- and this never took place after his death.
Marrs revealed findings of the government's secret remote viewing program. For instance, in targeting the failed missions of the Mars Observer and Phobos II, viewers described a disc-shaped object rising off the surface of Mars and scanning the craft as they entered Mars' orbit. Inadvertently, the scanning beams caused the crafts' computers to be scrambled and control was lost. He added that Soviet pilot Marina Popovich's photo matched the remote viewed description. Marrs also mentioned that he participates in a special forum hosted by Above Top Secret.
First hour guests, MUFON spokesperson Alejandro Rojas and former reporter for the Empire Tribune Angelia Joiner offered updates in the Stephenville, Texas UFO case. There was a new sighting in the area on February 9th, said Rojas, who added that Bruce Maccabee had been brought in by MUFON to analyze video and photos in the case.
Joiner discussed the controversy around her leaving the newspaper that she was reporting on the UFO incidents for, as well as the harassment one of the witnesses has experienced with military aircraft buzzing his property. For more on the story, see this recent report from Earthfiles.com.
