Month: January 2011

Richard O’Connor, M.D.

The fifth annual Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF) closed yesterday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Panel presentations and forum discussions took place over January 22-25, 2011. While this conference would normally be of little personal interest to me, this year’s roster of invited speakers at the conference caught my attention. Ufologist Stanton Friedman, journalist and well known British UFO authority Nick Pope, venture capitalist and well known UFO authority Jacques Vallee, and well known science writer, brilliant physicist, and History Channel UFO commentator Michio Kaku were invited to speak at this year’s GCF. The title of their presentation? Contact: Learning From Outer Space.

This is a very interesting and welcome new development.

What other familiar faces were invited to speak at the Saudi GCF? The list is a long one, but to name only a few: former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was invited to speak, the Saudi Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, and former U.S. President Bill Clinton. We note that President Clinton’s name and photo were conspicuously absent from the long list of pre-announced conference speakers, but he did stand at the podium and he did speak of our world’s ongoing need for innovation. Perhaps in remaining as inconspicuous as possible, President Clinton hoped to avoid being asked any uncomfortable and possibly embarrassing questions regarding UFOs and the intelligence behind them.

The list of speakers and those who attended this conference is a lengthy roster of the movers and the shakers of our civilization’s global business community. Big companies, big money, big ideas. There is one characteristic about such a group as this of which we can be certain: they would not have their time wasted on nonsense. People whose lives operate at this echelon of human endeavor and responsibility do not suffer fools lightly and they keenly realize that naivety regarding the myriad forces that are at play in shaping our world and our reality is not a virtue. After all, it’s business, and these GCF attendees eat, sleep, and drink business.

Therefore, this unique panel of speakers invited to the 2011 GCF composed of Stanton Friedman, Jacques Vallee, Nick Pope, and Michio Kaku is a highly significant indicator that UFO Disclosure is gaining momentum. With this new involvement of the global business community, Disclosure may be imminent. To many of these business leaders, the term UFO will represent an Unprecedented Financial Opportunity.

The Friedman, Vallee, Pope, and Kaku panel were not invited to the GCF in order that GCF attendees could make fun of them, deride them, and call them “nut cases”. They were not invited to the GCF to provide entertainment. They were invited there because the momentum of UFO Disclosure is accelerating, and a great number of highly influential capitalists in our world now know with certainty that the UFO Phenomenon is real. These business leaders are educating themselves about the UFO Phenomenon, trying to put together their After Disclosure game plan in the light of their new awareness of this unprecedented reality. We should pay close attention to these developments and follow this example.

In his SOTU address yesterday evening, President Obama made the point of how quickly our world is changing. He spoke of plans to produce electric cars, high speed trains, and of America’s need to educate and to innovate. He also spoke of biofuels, “clean coal”, and natural gas as being a part of America’s plan to meet our future energy requirements. President Obama made it clear from what he said, and from what he did not say, that the U.S. government establishment will continue its policy of avoiding acknowledgment of the reality of the UFO Phenomenon, it will not be mentioned out loud in public, and our government will continue to simply ignore the fact that there are one or more civilizations who have arrived here and who have apparently developed a means to produce energy that powers machines of transport which make electric cars and high speed trains obsolete and primitive means of transportation, even before they are produced.

As concerned citizens of not only our nation the U.S., but also as citizens of planet Earth, we must continue to ask when this charade will end. How can we, in good conscience, choose to continue to squander our planet’s limited resources and to foul Earth’s environment in the production of machines of transport and methods of energy production that are comparatively primitive, obsolete, and environmentally destructive when viewed in light of the frequently described performance characteristics of UFOs and the energy which powers them? We simply cannot afford to continue to sweep this new reality under the carpet and continue to pretend that it does not exist. In the 1800′s, Native Americans were smarter than this. When introduced to the relatively awesome power of the modern rifle they did not ignore this new development in their reality. They did not say “now that we know these weapons exist, lets just not tell any of the others about them and let us pretend that they do not exist”, nor did they say “we will just have to produce a better arrowhead”. They quickly recognized the need to completely abandon an old and more primitive technology and adopt an obviously superior technology which would serve their needs to produce the food, clothing, and the defense they required.

If what has transpired at the GCF in Riyadh indicates that the business leadership of our global civilization is at last beginning to recognize the UFO Phenomenon as the highly significant factor in the evolution of our civilization’s future that it will be, we can be thankful for the GCF and thankful that there are some important and influential people out there who are now giving the UFO Phenomenon the attention that it rightfully deserves. Would that the leadership of our own government follow their example!

Here is my suggestion to President Obama and to the U.S. Congress. Tell the budding young scientists presently being educated in our universities that the UFO Phenomenon is real, and task them with the mission to discover and then replicate the means of energy production that is utilized to power them. We do not need to “reinvent the wheel”. We need to take this new information that has fallen into our laps and find out how it works in a program of well funded scientific research undertaken by the brightest minds on this planet, unfettered by the secrecy which has stifled previous attempts toward this end by our U.S. military-industrial complex. I believe that President Obama should set up a task force modeled similarly to the “Manhattan Project”, appointed to make Contact with the Visitors, and have this task force attempt to determine who these beings are who are operating the UFOs; from where do they originate, how they have arrived here, how their machines are manufactured, and what means of energy production is used to power them. We should seek to arrange a diplomatic agreement with these Visitors. This is how our nation, and our civilization, can make serious progress to gain the future President Obama spoke of in his SOTU address yesterday evening, and this is how we can protect the precious biosphere of Earth from further degradation through the use of biofuels, “clean coal”, natural gas, or any organic materials which we must combust for energy production. Those methods are of the past. UFOs are of the future. Last but not least, we should ask them how they make the “Genuine” Crop Circles. They are absolutely astounding in their beauty and their complexity!

President Obama’s SOTU address was masterfully delivered with very important content. His skill as an orator is brilliant! I believe his heart is in the right place and he is trying to do his best for the American people. His joke about the smoked salmon was pretty funny, and we had a good laugh about that one! President Obama is the one who can present the UFO truth to the world, framed in his reassurance that we have everything to gain from the expansion that our understanding of this universe will undergo when we open up to this new paradigm without fear.

UFOs are not funny nor are they imaginary, and I would respectfully ask that President Obama acknowledge their presence in our reality to the American people and to the world in order that we can then move on to our future and possibly skip the part where we have more fossil fuels and their toxic by-products poured into our gas tanks, spilled into our oceans, spewed into our air, and breathed into our lungs.

Graphic summary of GCF discussions by Sunni Brown reveals prominence of ET contact and new energy systems.

At five thousand dollars a ticket, some business leaders got more than they bargained for when they attended the first day of the Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF) being held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. They were told flying saucers are real, and they had better start thinking about the business implications of extraterrestrial life and technologies. Convened each year by the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority, the GCF brings together business and political leaders to discuss ways of promoting business competitiveness. For the first time at its annual conference, the GCF held a panel discussing UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Titled “Learning from Outer Space” the panel comprised five speakers who all endorsed the view that extraterrestrial life is real, and has many implications for the world as we know it.

The panel was held on January 23, and was a “main plenary” session meaning all GCF participants were able to attend and hear what the experts had to say about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Up to 1000 participants included business and political elites such as former British and Canadian Prime Ministers, Tony Blair and Jean Chretien; Jim Albaugh, President and CEO of Boeing; Andy Bird, chairman of Walt Disney International; Jared Cohen, Director of Google ideas, and many others. The advice they got was that the issue of extraterrestrial life is real, and they better start paying attention to the business implications. Here’s how the GCF summarized the panel presentations on its website:

Learning from Outer Space – Panel
The unconventional and highly relevant topic of extraterrestrial life forms was addressed by yesterday’s panel discussion “Contact: Learning from Outer Space”. Experts Zoaghloul El-Naggar, Stanton Friedman, Michio Kaku, Nick Pope and Jacques Vallee made compelling cases for the existence of living beings elsewhere in the galaxy, drawing upon empirical evidence, religious theology and logical reasoning.
Mr. Friedman opened his remarks with a bold statement, “Flying saucers are real!” and this summed up the perspective of the panel members. Mr. Pope explored the potential business implications of outer space, such as the profitability of alien branding or sponsorship.
While El-Naggar was also convinced of their existence, he raised the interesting point that it may not be ethical to spend resources trying to contact alien societies when we still face war and poverty in our own society.
Mr. Vallee encouraged more academics to analyze the evidence. However, on behalf of his successful Venture Capital fund, he said, “We are not ready to invest in this type of research, but we think that somebody should.”

The 2011 GCF conference panel on Outer Space has opened the door for world business leaders to seriously consider the implications of evidence concerning UFOs and extraterrestrial life. A graphic summarizing GCF discussions by artist, Sunni Brown (top right), reveals the prominence given to issues of extraterrestrial contact and the overwhelming changes new energies will bring to humanity. Business leaders are poised to do what political leaders have so far failed to do – proactively deal with compelling evidence that we are being visited by galactic civilizations who have advanced technologies to share with humanity.

President Eisenhower Farewell Adress - Jan 17, 1961

Today is the 50th anniversary of Eisenhower’s warning about the dangers posed by the military-industrial complex in his farewell speech televised on January 17, 1961. It was the most unusual of farewell addresses for a U.S. President, especially so for a retired five star general. What exactly did Eisenhower have in mind with his farewell address? More importantly, what did Eisenhower tell President-Elect Kennedy about the military-industrial complex in his confidential meetings with him away from their staffers during the Presidential transition period? After all, the issues that so concerned Eisenhower would be passed on to Kennedy. It would be only natural that Eisenhower would confidentially brief Kennedy about critical policy issues that he could only vaguely allude to in a public speech. This leads to the critical question. Did these confidential discussions away from presidential staffers, play any role in what subsequently happened to Kennedy less than three years later? Most Kennedy assassination theorists ignore any direct link between Eisenhower’s farewell speech and the Kennedy assassination. The reality is that there is a direct link between Eisenhower’s warning of the military-industrial complex and the actors that conspired to physically eliminate Kennedy in 1963. The link in question was executive Presidential control over advanced technologies associated with the UFO phenomenon.

First, let’s begin with Eisenhower’s farewell speech itself and the warning he gave exactly fifty years ago:

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

Eisenhower emphasized the importance of “an alert and knowledgeable citizenry” in ensuring a proper balance of national security interests and personal liberties. Clearly, what Eisenhower had in mind was that the citizenry would be sufficiently informed about national security issues so that a balance could be reached in the policy making process. When the private citizenry, along with elected political representatives and the mass media were not informed, the potential for disastrous misuse of power under the guise of national security existed. Eisenhower desired transparency when it came to the national security process, and saw this as the means of maintaining a proper balance between security and liberty. Given Eisenhower’s military background and long familiarity with the need for secrecy on vital national security issues, it is an extraordinary statement from him. So what was it precisely that so concerned Eisenhower that he would take such an extraordinary position in his farewell address?

Most assume that the military-industrial complex referred to the enormous armaments industry developed in the U.S. to feed the growing appetite of the U.S. military in policing the world. Enforcing Pax America would require long range bombers, aircraft carriers, nuclear missiles and a whole array of armaments that would be built by private contractors and spawn a vast military-industrial complex. Herein lay the danger according to the conventional view where highly paid corporate lobbyists would exercise undue influence over legislators and the mass media to justify expenditure on more powerful armaments. There was, however, a deeper aspect to the military-industrial complex that concerned Eisenhower above all else. Something so veiled in secrecy that the citizenry, elected political representatives, and even the President himself was out of the loop of the policy making process. The issue concerned advanced technologies associated with UFOs.

Insight into the thinking of President Eisenhower in referring to the danger of the military-industrial complex was given by Steven Lovekin who worked during the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations in the White House Army Signal Agency, and later retired as an Army JAG officer with the rank of Lt Colonel. From 1959-1961, Lovekin was in an elite group of military servicemen whose job it was to maintain the integrity of Eisenhower’s communications channels. This brought him into close proximity with Eisenhower who confided to this elite military group some of his private concerns. This is how Lovekin describes Eisenhower’s concerns over the power of the military-industrial complex, and its handling of the UFO phenomenon:

We would sit around with him when we were at Camp David, and he knew who each and every one of us by name. That was the great thing about being under him. I was just a sergeant at the time. I was still privy to some stuff that some people wouldn’t be privy to…. When he said the main thing we have to fear is the military industrial complex, he wasn’t kidding, and he had the subject matter we are talking about [UFOs] in mind. He was quite explicit about that.

Lovekin’s testimony is an eyewitness account that Eisenhower believed that the danger posed by the military-industrial complex was directly related to management of the UFO phenomenon. In another interview, Lovekin described Eisenhower’s growing frustration with the way the UFO issue was being managed:

This frustration, from what I can remember, went on for months. He realized that he was losing control of the UFO subject. He realized that the phenomenon or whatever it was that we were faced with was not going to be in the best hands. As far as I can remember, that was the expression that was used, “It is not going to be in the best hands.” That was a real concern. And so it has turned out to be…

So if Eisenhower did privately warn Kennedy about the threat posed by the military-industrial complex in managing the UFO issue, how might this be related to the Kennedy assassination?

There have been a number of whistleblowers who have come forward to reveal that President Kennedy actively sought to be briefed about UFOs, but was denied access by senior policy officials. Kennedy tried to do an end run against those denying him access and visited military bases to learn directly about classified projects conducted there. Kennedy also sought to be briefed by military intelligence officers who knew about the UFO issue and how it was being managed by an elite control group. This is confirmed retired Lt Col Philip Corso who worked in the Eisenhower administration, and during the Kennedy administration, claims to have worked in a Top Secret Army project to seed civilian industries with recovered UFO technology. In an interview, Corso revealed that he personally briefed Bobby Kennedy about UFOs, who relayed what he had learned to his brother, the President.

I have written elsewhere about evidence suggesting that President Kennedy from the beginning of his administration, did indeed attempt to re-establish direct Presidential authority over management of the UFO issue. Kennedy was thwarted again and again. His assassination was a direct consequence of his final, and most audacious effort to regain control of the UFO issue. In September, 1963, Kennedy proposed joint space and lunar missions with the Soviet Union. This would have required an extensive information sharing program including data about UFOs. On November 12, 1963, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev finally accepted Kennedy’s offer. Ten days later Kennedy was dead.

Kennedy’s efforts to re-establish Presidential control of the UFO phenomenon can be directly traced back to President Eisenhower’s warning about the dangers of the military-industrial complex; and what Eisenhower had, almost certainly, privately confided to him about the secret management system for UFO technology. 50 years ago the world was warned about the dangers of the military-industrial complex. Few are aware of the extent to which President Kennedy tried to secretly deal with the danger that Eisenhower had only vaguely described in his farewell address; and how Kennedy’s efforts to decisively act on Eisenhower’s warning was directly related to his assassination.
