I-Team: Former Sen. Reid Pushing to Solve the Mystery of UFOs

by George Knapp and Matt Adams                    February 1, 2019                 (lasvegasnow.com)

• In his first on-camera interview since battling some health issues, former Nevada Senator Harry Reid (pictured above) told the I-team’s George Knapp that he maintains his enthusiasm for UFO research. (see 2:08 minute excerpt from the Harry Reid interview below)

• When told that Pentagon officials said that the $22M Pentagon UFO study known as the ‘Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program’ (AATIP), which reportedly amassed a gigantic data base of UFO cases, videos, and information, and also produced dozens of scientific papers about advanced technology, was cancelled in 2012 because ‘it didn’t produce much’ and found ‘nothing of interest’, Reid responded, “[I]t was voluminous reports with a lot of good stuff in it, and it’s too bad they said that.” “[S]omebody either wasn’t telling the truth or didn’t know the facts.”


Former Nevada Senator Harry Reid says he is once again bending ears and twisting arms to get his congressional colleagues interested in studying UFOs.

Reid has been out of the spotlight for the last year while battling some health issues.

Now, that he is feeling stronger, he gave his first on-camera interview despite the tough challenges he faced in the last year, Senator Reid has maintained his enthusiasm for UFO research, and the I-Team didn’t have to ask twice for an update.

Back in 2007 when he was Senate Majority Leader, Reid and colleagues initiated a secret Pentagon study of UFOs and related topics. It was based in Nevada and reportedly amassed a gigantic data base of UFO cases, videos, and information. It also produced dozens of scientific papers about advanced technology.

In late 2017, news of the program finally went public. People at the Pentagon claimed it had been cancelled, in part, because it didn’t produce much. Reid says that’s baloney.

Did Top Secret Pentagon ‘Stargate’ Letter Convince Senator John McCain Alien Invasion Was Imminent?

by Bill Bain                    January 27, 2019                        (heraldscotland.com)

• On January 16th, a declassified DIA/Pentagon letter dated January 9, 2018 addressed primarily to the late Arizona Senator, John McCain, as the Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, (see letter with attached list of 38 DIA-commissioned program titles here) was released pursuant to a Freedom of Information request. The letter contained the titles of ‘a bewildering litany of otherworldly research papers commissioned from scientists around the globe’.

• Unless the Russians or Chinese have torn a wormhole through the fabric of space-time with a laser weapon recently, it isn’t they who have the Pentagon delving into invisibility cloaking, dark energy, stargates, multidimensional manipulation, meta-materials, laser weapons, quantum entanglement and “controlling external devices in the absence of limb-operated interfaces”. Who were the academics and scientists writing these advanced technology research papers for the U.S. government and why?

• Many of the academics who wrote the ‘Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program’ (AATIP) research papers were already part of the now-defunct “National Institute for Discovery Science”, which was well-known for its studies of UFO sightings, extraterrestrials and other “fringe” topics. Nevada businessman and UFO believer, Robert Bigelow founded the NIDSci. Bigelow’s friend, Nevada Senator Harry Reid, initiated the 2007 AATIP study, and it was Bigelow Aerospace which won the AATIP contract to manage its research.

• The largest single source of these Pentagon academic reports is EarthTech International of Texas, whose CEOs have close ties to Robert Bigelow and Bigelow Aerospace.

• One AATIP report on the topic of ‘Invisibility Cloaking’ was penned by the respected German scientist, Dr Ulf Leonhardt. Leonhardt is a noted global expert on quantum optics, which juxtaposes the fact nothing actually exists with photon manipulation. One day, this may potentially allow a military force to enter a country without being seen.

• Another AATIP author is former NASA propulsion engineer, Marc Millis. Millis claims he had an unexplained visionary experience where a ‘being’ produced a ball of energy which then entered his body. After attending a Silicon Valley venture capital event in 1999, Millis left NASA to pursue exotic technologies.

• While the Pentagon spent $22 million on its Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, Nick Pope – formerly the “Fox Mulder” of Britain’s own governmental UFO research department during the 1990’s, notes that, “It still doesn’t give us a definitive answer to whether, as claimed, ‘foreign advanced aerospace weapon threats’ is coded language for UFOs.”

• Although it’s unknown if the AATIP paper convinced Senator McCain of a viable alien threat, it’s certain that former US President Ronald Reagan believed in such a possibility. Reagan’s numerous mentions of aliens in speeches marked him as a blatant “UFO-nut” hiding in plain sight. During the 1985 Geneva Summit, Reagan and Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev had a private chat. Years later, Gorbachev revealed that Reagan had simply asked him to set aside their differences in case the world was invaded by aliens. Reagan made public his concerns in a 1987 U.N. speech, saying, “I occasionally think how quickly our differences would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. Yet, I ask you, is not an alien force already among us? What could be more alien to the universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat of war?”

[Editor’s Note]   This is a typically snarky British Deep State response to the revelation that the Pentagon brass and top politicians take the type of exotic propulsion and other technologies exhibited by UFOs very seriously. While describing the origins and authors of the Pentagon’s AATIP research from 2007 to 2012, the writer employs ridicule and derision to portray the AATIP authors as a bit unhinged, debunking the motive of commissioning such research programs, and condemning the reports as a waste of time and money. Even the article’s title makes a joke out of an alien invasion. And therefore, it is a waste of time for anyone to take the Pentagon’s exotic propulsion and technology programs seriously. In other words, don’t believe the evidence you see before you, believe us (the Deep State) when we tell you that none of it matters. Life will continue as it is with fossil fuel engine propulsion, and any new technologies will only come to the public in small drips … and you’ll like it.


“THERE are a number of people here who know everything on that screen was absolutely true,” said the President. A wave of nervous laugher rippled through the White House’s private cinema room. Ronald Reagan, however, never broke a smile, his solemnity immediately silencing the intimate audience of esteemed guests – Neil Armstrong, Steven Spielberg, high-ranking military personnel and the upper echelons of Nasa among them. It was 1982 and the group had just been treated to a special pre-release screening of ET: The Extra-Terrestrial.

Despite its rather outré nature, this tale is no urban myth – although some details have been embellished over the years. One retelling even has Reagan weeping on Spielberg’s shoulder as ET “went home”. Having since confirmed the event indeed took place, the legendary director has also admitted he remains unsure if Reagan was being honest with his guests – or simply pulling off deadpan surrealism better than Rikki Fulton or Jacob Rees-Mogg.

One thing is incontrovertibly true – if Ronald Reagan had intimate knowledge of extra-terrestrial visitations to Earth, then he certainly knew they weren’t friendly, doe-eyed botanists. Without even taking his bizarre satellite-laser “Star Wars” missile defence system into consideration, Reagan’s numerous mentions of aliens in speeches marked him as a blatant UFO-nut hiding in plain sight. One turning a blind eye to the Pentagon burning through tens of millions of taxpayer dollars investigating “foreign advanced aerospace weapons”.

Yet, if such research – carried out under different guises by the US military since Project Blue Book in the 1950s – was simply to ascertain the threat from traditional Russian or Chinese bogeymen, then it seems they were a wee bit more technologically advanced than previously thought.

This week, the Pandora’s Box of top secret Pentagon documents was declassified under a Freedom of Information request – a single five-page letter containing the titles of a bewildering litany of otherworldly research papers commissioned from scientists around the globe.

The titles of these academic studies certainly don’t concur with commonly accepted Russian technical malevolence like vote rigging and web trolling. Certainly, research into invisibility cloaking, dark energy, stargates, multidimensional manipulation, meta-materials, laser weapons, quantum entanglement and “controlling external devices in the absence of limb-operated interfaces” seems more like a Philip K Dick fever dream.

If nothing else, the document – addressed primarily to the office of late Senator and former pilot John McCain, who also had a considerable interest in colourful accounts of unusual aviation – certainly proves the Pentagon had been trying to get their heads around the true nature of a somewhat peculiar security threat. And unless the Russians or Chinese have torn a wormhole through the fabric of spacetime with a laser weapon recently, it wasn’t them.

Uni lateral thinking

THE exotic nature of some of the research papers commissioned by the US military’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) would raise a quizzical eyebrow on even Vladmir Putin’s Botox-irrigated deathmask.
It’s certainly reaffirmed the suspicions of the global Ufology community, who only learned of the research papers’ existence last week after the AATIP letter ended up on the desk of Nick Pope, ex-head of the UK Government’s official UFO research project. Colloquially known as Britian’s “Fox Mulder”, the affable Nick immediately teased true believers on Twitter with some ambiguous speculation, saying: “It still doesn’t give us a definitive answer to whether, as claimed, ‘foreign advanced aerospace weapon threats’ is coded language for UFOs.”

DIA List of Exotic Propulsion Papers linked to Mars Colony Recruitment

Laura Magdalene Eisenhower, great granddaughter of President Dwight Eisenhower, claims that from April 2006 to January 2007, she and a friend were the targets of a covert recruitment effort to be taken to a future Mars colony to escape imminent catastrophic earth events. Laura Eisenhower says that despite her repeated refusals, she was subjected to different forms of pressure by individuals associated with the Mars colony project, the head of which she claimed was famed physicist, Dr. Hal Puthoff.

Puthoff’s involvement in an alleged Mars colony recruitment project that targeted Eisenhower and her friend takes on particular significance with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) releasing a list of 38 Defense Intelligence Reference Documents (DIRD) studying the feasibility of exotic propulsion and energy technologies. The DIA documents date back to 2007 when funding was first made available for the creation of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) through the Senate Majority Leader at the time, Harry Reid.

It’s more than coincidental that Eisenhower and her friend’s experiences overlapped with the beginning of the AATIP program, which funded advanced propulsion technology studies with the $22 million provided by the U.S. Congress. The money was sent to the Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS), which in turn funded studies by researchers and their affiliated institutions.

The most prominent of these was EarthTech International which was founded by Puthoff in Austin, Texas with a focus on exotic technology research as explained on their website:

The Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin was founded in 1985 by Harold Puthoff, PhD, and later incorporated under EarthTech International, Inc., in 1991 as an innovative research facility with a high‐powered creative staff dedicated to exploring the forefront reaches of science and engineering. Our research interests include theories of spacetime, gravity and cosmology; studies of the quantum vacuum; modifications of standard theories of electrodynamics; interstellar flight science; and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, specifically as these topics may apply to developing innovative space propulsion and sources of energy. We strive to translate these ideas into laboratory experiments.

Senator Reid’s decision to fund AATIP, the prominent role of Robert Bigelow (billionaire founder of BAASS) in directing the funding to research institutions such as EarthTech International, suggest that there was a shared interest among Reid, Bigelow and Puthoff in the idea of establishing a Mars colony to survive future cataclysmic Earth events.

According to Eisenhower’s testimony, which appears in interviews and an extensive online report released in February 2010, the planned Mars colony needed her and others to seed the colony which would survive the predicted cataclysms. She became romantically involved with an Agent X [whose identity she wishes to withhold for his protection] in April 2006, who was the key intermediary in the recruitment effort.

Agent X was closely associated with Puthoff’s EarthTech International, as Eisenhower explained:

Regarding the group he [Agent X] mentioned, he believed that he had joined a sort of thinktank, an investigative group, which was also working on creating a mission to Mars. He kept telling me of the cataclysms that were coming and that this was something we were special to be involved in.

Agent X very much thought that the people he was dealing with were good guys and his physicist adviser [Dr. Hal Puthoff] was his hero because of the zero point energy, remote viewing stuff he was involved in. He tried to get me excited, saying that we had a chance to escape the disaster.

It should be noted that Puthoff is widely credited with establishing the remote viewing program at Stanford Research Institute that received funding from the DIA and the U.S. intelligence community from 1970 up to 1994, when the DIA decided to stop funding for reasons best explained by the veteran remote viewer, Joseph McMoneagle.

Eisenhower says that her family bloodline and metaphysical connection to a “Christ-Sophia” archetype of feminine energy, made her and her young twin sons highly desirable recruits for the launch of the future Mars colony. She was subsequently targeted in an elaborate honeypot operation involving an Agent X:

It just did not sit well with me, but he wouldn’t talk further, and I just hoped it would all fade away as our love would become much more important. At this time, I had no idea the power they had over him, or that they were even using anything on him to keep him as an agent and almost a servant to their mission. I was blinded by love too, and I just wanted to not think about it till it came up again. I later found out that they had sent him to find me….

The agency that sent him to find me, or the other groups he was involved in who held my story in their awareness for many lifetimes, I wasn’t sure who he was speaking on behalf of regarding Sophia or my boys – because I believed I was a person of interest for the agency and was recruited to Mars because of my Eisenhower bloodline. I suppose the reasons were both.

Direct corroboration for Eisenhower’s claims comes from a former friend, Ki’ Lia, who was similarly targeted in the Mars recruitment effort, and eventually wrote about it in a detailed online report called “2012 Earth Timelines and the Secret Mars Agenda” that was released around the same time of Eisenhower’s report in February 2010.

Especially important was an extensive number of research papers that Eisenhower and Ki’ Lia say they were given access to by the Mars colony team headed by Dr. Puthoff. Ki’ Lia wrote:

I was sent for review many scientific documents about the key technology components:

  • propellantless propulsion or faster-than-light warp drive
  • plasma ion fusion
  • ultraconductors

As well as regarding:

  • vehicle design, land, air and aquatic robotic rovers
  • artificial intelligence
  • advanced communications and knowledge transfer
  • architectural compositions and other capacities to terraform and replenish life on Mars

I also was asked to look into other aerospace academies, virtual reality, psychotronic weapons, invisible shielding and a whole spectrum of exotic, quantum access technologies.

What is remarkable here is the number of advanced technology topics she mentioned in her 2010 report that match many of the studies in the list of 38 Defense Intelligence Reference Documents (DIRD) released eight years later in 2018.

Even more significant is that six of the 38 DIRD papers identified in the DIA list had as their primary authors scientists affiliated with EarthTech International.

The six papers with EarthTech International scientists as primary authors deal with a variety of energy and propulsion systems associated with space travel in general. These topics would be critical for future Mars missions and establishing a colony there.

The EarthTech papers in the DIA list are identified with the security marking UNCLASSIFIED/FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY, along with the name of the lead author and where they appear in the sequence of 38 documents:

5. Advanced Space Propulsion Based on Vacuum (Spacetime Metric) Engineering, Dr. Hal Puthoff …

8. Traversable Wormholes, Stargates, and Negative Energy, Dr. Eric Davis …

11. Antigravity for Aerospace Applications, Dr Eric Davis …

14. Concepts for Extracting Energy from the Quantum Vacuum, Dr. Eric Davis …

31. Laser Lightcraft Nanosatellites, Dr. E. Davis …

34. Quantum Tomography of Negative Energy Stats in the Vacuum, Dr. E. Davis.

So far three of the reference documents listed among the list of 38 confirmed by the DIA have been leaked to the public. These are documents #5 and #8 in the DIA list, which were first publicly released by Corey Goode on December 17, 2017; and document #19 which was released later by George Knapp on May 4, 2018. It is titled “Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions” and its co-authors are Richard K. Obousy, Ph.D. and Eric Davis, Ph.D.

Consequently, out of the three papers that have been publicly released in their entirety, all list EarthTech scientists as first or second authors. We do not know if EarthTech scientists were involved in the remaining 31 documents since the DIA list only shows the first author. It is expected that further FOIA requests will lead to the release of all the unclassified documents on the list.

Of the seven DIRD documents authored by Earth Tech scientists, five of them deal with spacecraft and propulsion, while two deal with extracting energy from a vacuum. These would be highly desirable research areas to develop breakthroughs in order to establish a Mars colony as Eisenhower and Ki’Lia claimed.

Was EarthTech really intent on developing concepts for a future Mars colony, or merely creating a cover for an already existent Mars colony seeking new recruits from Earth?

Both Eisenhower and Ki’ Lia were unsure as to what the real agenda was in the covert effort to recruit them for a planned Mars colony, and they raised a number of possibilities in their respective reports.

There has been an extensive number of whistleblowers and insiders who have spoken about secret Mars bases and colonies already in existence by 2006. These include Corey Goode, Henry Deacon, Andrew Basiago, Michael Relfe and others. If they are correct, as I have concluded elsewhere, then it becomes clear that EarthTech was not really intending on their DIA reference documents being used to build propulsion technologies for a future Mars colony.

Goode in fact has said that the Mars colonies routinely use deception to attract Earth based recruits who are promised a futurist luxurious lifestyle on Mars, but instead are subjected to slave labor conditions soon after their arrival. Eisenhower had independently concluded that this would indeed have been the fate awaiting her two sons and her, along with Ki’Lia, if they had gone through with the recruitment process:

Over time the Mars issue became louder and louder. Ki’-Lia and he were working on plans to make this mission happen, but she realized his plans were dubious based on my observations and could only try to investigate more. She and I would talk more and more, and I would fill her in on my observations. I had dreams and premonitions that something was way off, and in one dream I got taken up by chains into a ship and a voice told me I had to make a choice about being with them or staying on Earth – and that they wouldn’t harm me but they would certainly control me.

Based on Eisenhower and Ki’ Lia’s reports, there appears to have been multiple purposes in the use of the DIRD papers prepared by EarthTech, and other exotic technology papers published over the years in a variety academic journals.

One was to use the 38 AATIP papers as a cover for exotic propulsion and energy technologies that had already been covertly developed by private industry, and were being used in secret space programs, and manned bases or colonies on the Moon and Mars. It should be noted that the $22 million provided in funds for the DIRD studies and related AATIP programs was the proverbial drop in the bucket for funding an actual Mars colony program. Thus AATIP was being used as a cover for an actual Mars colony program that was accepting recruits for new bases or colonies due to predicted Earth cataclysms makes a lot of sense.

A second purpose was to lure recruits to an already existing Mars colony by promising them a means of evacuating Earth prior to cataclysmic changes. As Eisenhower and Ki’ Lia suspected, and as Goode independently confirmed, the future Mars colony recruitment effort was a deception that would have drawn them into an already existing program, where they would have been ruthlessly exploited.

A third purpose was ritual based magic as Eisenhower, her twin sons and Ki’ Lia were viewed as archetypal representations of divine feminine energies and the mythical founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus. Basically, Mars was to become a new Rome from which imperial space power would be projected throughout the solar system, and beyond. In 2007, Richard Hoagland and Mike Bara exposed how ritual based magic is a prominent part of NASA missions, thereby suggesting that a similar process occurs in secret space programs.

Finally, the six EarthTech papers, along with the other 32 papers identified in the DIRD list, had the purpose of getting white world scientists and the general public up to speed on some of the technologies that have already been developed and are being used in secret space programs. This, according to Goode, was the reason why he was given two of the 38 DIA documents, as previously discussed, and released them to the general public.

The recent confirmation by the Defense Intelligence Agency of a list of 38 reference documents, corroborates key elements of Eisenhower and Ki’ Lia’s controversial claims about being targets for a covert recruitment project for a Mars colony. The EarthTech International research papers they were shown as part of this process closely matched topics covered in the DIRD papers funded by Reid and the U.S. Congress, through Robert Bigelow’s BAASS.

The concerns raised by Eisenhower and Ki Lia in their respective reports about the Mars recruitment effort and the role played by Puthoff’s EarthTech International appear to be valid. This requires further investigation of the role played by Puthoff, Davis, Reid and Bigelow in developing exotic technology ideas to escape predicted Earth cataclysms, and/or being involved in finding recruits for a covert Mars Colony program.
