A Private Tour of Roswell With a UFO Expert Looking for the Truth

Listen to “E51 8-03-19 A Private Tour of Roswell with a UFO Expert Looking for the Truth” on Spreaker.

• Dennis Balthaser is a UFO researcher and author, and a long-time resident of Roswell, New Mexico. He is an expert on the details of the Roswell UFO crash of 1947. Several years ago, Balthaser began to offer private tours of nearby areas of interest pertaining to the Roswell crash. He expected doing 3 or 4 tours a month. His current schedule is ten tours a week, and he books up fast.

• Balthaser says that the city of Roswell has embraced its notoriety in a way that few other places have. Or, at least that’s what Roswell wants you think. Balthaser suggests that the city’s tourist campaign, gift shops, and constant reminders of aliens are an illusion. The city is more interested in selling t-shirts than preserving history, says Balthaser. The annual UFO Festival with its parade, costume contest, and concert is a “circus” – all spectacle and no substance. Balthaser doesn’t have time for a show. He is only interested in the truth of the UFO incident, which the US government has covered up.

• The first stop on Balthaser’s tour was the offices of the Roswell Daily Record, the newspaper that (on July 8th, 1947) published the first report of a downed UFO, and then, the very next day, published a retraction. Balthaser tells of the rancher, Mack Brazel, who found the debris in the desert outside the city proper. Prior to the UFO crash, Brazel had a side business returning downed weather balloons to authorities for a reward. So he was very familiar with weather balloons. And he knew that what he brought to Roswell’s sheriff, George Wilcox, was not a balloon. Wilcox called the military. The military authorities threatened the sheriff, confiscated the debris, and locked Brazel up in jail for five days. The newspaper’s retraction said that the debris was from a downed weather balloon.

• The next stop was at the Chaves County Courthouse, which was the site of the sheriff’s office in 1947. Sheriff Wilcox lived there with his family. His wife cooked for the prisoners. This was where Brazel brought the crash debris. Wilcox let his daughters play with the strange material – a metal sheet that could be crushed, but would reform in seconds. After handing the debris over to the Army, the military police came back to threaten the little girls to remain quiet. Balthaser has never forgiven them for that. The old sheriff’s office was demolished sometime around 1997 to build the new courthouse. But there is no plaque or sign indicating that it was once there. “Doesn’t make a lot of sense, does it?” said Balthaser. “Almost like they want the sheriff’s office to be forgotten.”

• The next stop was the funeral home where the mortician, Glenn Dennis, was a civilian witness to the 1947 incident. Dennis was a close friend of Balthaser before his death. On that day, Dennis had driven a soldier injured in a motorcycle accident to the Roswell Army Airfield military hospital where he saw hunks of metal being loaded into ambulances by military personnel he didn’t recognize. He was immediately stopped by an Army captain who threatened him that if he ever talked about this, they will “never find your bones in the desert.” The next day, Dennis received a call from the Army hospital, inquiring about embalming fluids and child-sized coffins. Soon after that, a nurse whom Dennis knew from the hospital was reported to have been relocated, and then, according to Dennis, to have died. Balthaser believes the story was concocted to protect the nurse who was said to have seen the saucer’s alien occupants.

• The next stop was a military housing complex where the Army Airfield was once located. A large house still remains there, which was the home to Colonel William H. Blanchard, the guy who forced the Roswell Daily Record to retract the original flying saucer crash article in 1947. Balthaser notes that after the incident, Blanchard was promoted to ‘assistant to the Joint Chiefs of Staff’ at the Pentagon, and became a four-star general by the age of 50. He also noted that Blanchard sent a Christmas card to Walter Haut – the public information officer who retracted his original story of the UFO crash – every single year for twenty years until Blanchard’s death. Balthaser thinks that this was the general’s way of keeping track of Haut and where he lived.

• They then arrived at the spot where the Army hospital once stood. Balthaser said that the city had demolished the hospital building to make room for a real estate developer. But there is no development there. In fact, only a water tower and Hanger 84, where the crash ‘debris’ was temporarily stored, are the only relics from 1947 that have not been destroyed and paved over.

• As they drive through the city of Roswell, Balthaser points out that the abundance of aliens depicted throughout the town, from lamp posts to a Dunkin’ Donuts statue, are all painted bright green, along with the city’s logo and tourist t-shirts. But the rancher, Brazel; the mortician, Haut; and the Army nurse all reported that the small aliens were grey, not green. Balthaser suspects that this is part of the cover-up and re-branding of the incident.

• Balthaser has less interest in promoting a conspiracy theory as he has in determining just what rattled his friends so badly, so many years ago. He noted that “you don’t threaten people over weather balloons”. These people stayed scared to their very deathbeds. And he finds it strange that today the City of Roswell brands itself after an extraterrestrial incident while systematically erasing all evidence of it.

[Editor’s Note]   Could this Army nurse that was “relocated” have been Matilda O’Donnell MacElroy, who is the subject of Lawrence R. Spencer’s book, “Alien Interview”?  In the book, Matilda claims to have been present at the site of the crashed flying saucer outside of Roswell, and that one of the four small Grey alien occupants had survived. This alien chose Matilda to attempt to communicate with, and the military brass ordered her to keep notes during a handful of interviews that she conducted with the Grey. To her surprise, she was allowed to keep these notes. After retiring from the Army, Matilda remained quiet throughout her life. But she was determined to share her notes with Lawrence Spencer before she died, which delved into the origin of plant and animal life on the planet, the human species, the Earth itself, and our place in the universe. She felt that mankind needed to know the answers to important questions contained in her notes and the book, including what other intelligent species inhabit the universe, and the devastating consequences to humanity if we ignore the message that the extraterrestrials are attempting to communicate to us.

 

The city of Roswell, New Mexico, knows exactly why you’re here. From the International UFO Museum and Research Center, to the enormous “little green man” holding up a Dunkin’ Donuts sign, to the alien-faced streetlights along downtown’s main drag, the city embraces its notoriety and novelty in a way that few other places have. Even its official motto, “We Believe,” all but admits to the veracity of the infamous “Roswell UFO Incident” of 1947, when a flying saucer was alleged to have crash-landed in the desert beyond the city limits before the government promptly covered it up.
Or, at least, that’s what Roswell wants you think that it thinks.

          Dennis Balthaser

To hear author and UFO researcher Dennis Balthaser tell it, the tourist campaign and the gift shops are all a sleight of hand, an illusion, a way to keep folks from looking too deeply at the truth. The city, he says, is more interested in selling t-shirts than preserving history. He refers to the recent UFO Festival — an annual parade, costume contest, and concert, this year headlined by Billy Ray Cyrus — as a “circus,” all spectacle and no substance.

Balthaser doesn’t have time for a show — he, like so many of us, is after the truth.

I meet Balthaser in an otherwise empty parking lot. He’s an older, unassuming man, standing in the shade of a tree and leaning against the hood of his SUV. His white cowboy hat is pulled low as he waits for me. He greets me with a nod, extends his hand.

He started offering tours of Roswell a few years ago, as a counter to the growing commercialization of the city’s history, with the expectation of running three, maybe four a month. His current schedule is ten tours a week, and he books up fast. I’m not even the first tourist he’s picked up today.

We start with the conspiracy right away: the first stop is the offices of the Roswell Daily Record, the newspaper that published the first report of a downed UFO, and then, the very next day, published the retraction. He tells the tale of the rancher, Mack Brazel, who found the debris in the desert outside the city proper, then brought it to Roswell’s sheriff. Brazel, I’m told, had a profitable side-hustle turning in downed weather balloons for a reward — he knew what one looked like. This, obviously, wasn’t that. The sheriff, George Wilcox, didn’t know what he was looking at either, so he called the military. Then the lawman got threatened. The rancher ends up in jail for five days. The military confiscated the debris.

Matilda O’Donnell MacElroy

Balthaser and I are sitting in a parking lot across the street from the Record as he recounts the story, the two of us eyeing the newspaper building like spies on a stakeout. He pulls out a binder, with reproductions of both front pages – the one about the Roswell Army Air Force “capturing” a flying saucer, and the one about the weather balloon.

“Twelve hours and the whole story changes.” He lowers his sunglasses at me, raises an eyebrow. “That’s a little suspicious, don’t you think?”

Trump Probably Hasn’t Been Told Anything About Area 51

Listen to “E41 7-26-19 Trump Probably Hasn’t Been Told Anything About Area 51” on Spreaker.

Article by Charles Creitz                      July 16, 2019                      (foxnews.com)

• Fox News’ commentator, Jesse Watters (pictured above with President Trump), pondered whether President Trump was aware of what goes on at the top secret military base known as ‘Area 51’. On the Fox News show “The Five”, Watters quipped, “I am surprised Trump has not slipped up about Area 51 yet… The man cannot keep a secret. I don’t even think they told him about Area 51.”

• Watters contends that if Trump is privy to knowledge about the base, ‘it is surprising he hasn’t told the public’. Watters noted that Trump is unusually open at campaign events. “He’ll just let it go at a rally,” Watters said. “But if he has kept that secret, I am very proud.”

• Area 51 is a government facility in the Nevada desert near Groom Lake, a salt flat located about 120 miles north of Las Vegas. The site was used during World War II as an aerial gunnery range for Army pilots. In the 1950’s it was converted to an Air Force test site for the U-2, F-117A, A-12 and TACIT BLUE aircraft. In 2013, the CIA acknowledged the base’s existence. Today, Area 51 employees take an unmarked passenger plane from a Las Vegas airport to the classified base.

• A Facebook page is advertising a ‘March on Area 51’ on September 20th at 3 am. The Facebook creator believes “they can’t stop all of us.” Well over one million people have pledged to participate in the invasion.

• While it isn’t exactly known what the base is currently used for, Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews told The Washington Post that Area 51 is where, “we train American armed forces” and “is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force.” She discouraged civilians from visiting the area. “The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets,” McAndrews added.

 

Ahead of a Facebook-advertised “storming” of Area 51, Jesse Watters considered whether President Trump has been told about what goes on at the secretive military installation.

If Trump is privy to top-secret information about the base, which has long been a point of discussion for conspiracy theorists who believe the facility holds government secrets about aliens and UFOs, it is surprising he hasn’t told the public, Watters said on “The Five.”

“I am surprised Trump has not slipped up about Area 51 yet,” he joked.

“The man cannot keep a secret. I don’t even think they told him about Area 51.”

The “Watters’ World” host added Trump is often unusually open at campaign events — to a greater extent than past presidents.

“He’ll just let it go at a rally,” he said. “But if he has kept that secret, I am very proud.”

On Facebook, a page advertising the purported event went viral over the past week, as more than 1 million users responded they would go to the top-secret military installation on Sept. 20 at 3 a.m., with the creator writing “they can’t stop all of us.”

UFO Fans Plan to ‘Storm Area 51’ and Find the Aliens Inside

Listen to “E38 7-18-19 UFO Fans Plan to ‘Storm Area 51’ and Find the Aliens Inside” on Spreaker.
by Rob Waugh                   July 8, 2019                     (finance.yahoo.com)

• A Facebook group entitled, ‘Shitposting cause i’m in shambles’, has organized a march on Area 51 on September 20th at 3 am, and over 120,000 have signed up to attend. Area 51 is the secretive military base in Nevada, where conspiracy theorists believe alien technology is being studied. The group will meet at the Area 51 Alien Center (on US-95 in Amargosa Valley, Nevada; pictured above).

• Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, says that Area 51 has always been a magnet for those who believe the US Government knows a lot more about UFOs than they want to reveal to the public. There is a 25-mile no-fly zone for civilian aircraft around the base. Has the government been working on secret alien technologies? Or is it simply a test-bed for hi-tech fighter aircraft?

• The late Boyd Bushman was a senior scientist who worked for Lockheed Martin at Area 51. Bushman claimed he had worked on anti-gravity projects, alien technologies, and had even met and photographed an alien. He examined at least eight different types of alien spacecraft there. Bushman also said that he had received death threats, and that security personnel had attempted to discredit him and tried to keep him from going public. In 2008 he passed a polygraph test to support his claims.

• Bushman revealed that “…aliens fly their spacecraft on a special flight path that takes them through a shaft drilled on the side of a mountain near Area 51.” He also claimed that 230-year-old humanoid aliens from the planet Quintumnia lived at Area 51.

• This backs-up other claims by people who say they have worked on ET spacecraft at the base, but there is no solid evidence for their stories. The extreme nature of these claims makes serious investigators shy away from this subject, and talk of UFOs and aliens is an effective way of hiding the real human technological activities at the site.

[Editor’s Note]  As of July 19th, 1.7 million people were “going” to the event.  

 

More than 120,000 people have pledged to ‘storm area 51’ – the secretive military base in Nevada, where conspiracy theorists believe alien technology is being studied.

The plan – hatched on a Facebook group – is set for September 20 this year, at 3am, with attendees planning to meet at the Area 51 Alien Centre.

  Boyd Bushman and alien being

Titled, ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All Of Us’, the plan has attracted thousands of people claiming they will attend.

We should note, however, that it’s from a Facebook group entitled, ‘S**tposting cause I’m in shambles’, so it may be that some of the UFO fans fail to show up, Metro reported.

At the Area 51 base in Nevada, there is a 25-mile no-fly zone for civilian aircraft – so aerial views of the base are rarely seen.

But have they – as UFO fans believe – been working on secret technologies stolen from aliens?

Or is the base simply a test-bed for hi-tech fighter aircraft?
