• On July 5th, Donald Burleson, New Mexico’s MUFON Director, gave a presentation on the link between Marilyn Monroe’s death and the UFO cover-up to a packed room at the International UFO Museum & Research Center at the recent Roswell UFO Festival.

• In 1962, at age 36, the actress Marilyn Monroe was found dead at her Brentwood estate’s guest house from probable suicide after swallowing barbiturates. Monroe was believed to have had extramarital affairs with both John and Robert Kennedy. Burleson believes that JFK illegally divulged classified information about the existence of UFOs and alien life forms to Monroe. Later, Monroe was so disgusted with the Kennedys, that she told close friends that she wanted to hold a national press conference where she would “tell all” about the Kennedys.

• Burleson points to a wiretap of journalist Dorothy Kilgallen revealing a conversation she had with Monroe, where Monroe had spoken about learning of a secret visit JFK made to an airbase to inspect materials from outer space, and that such a disclosure would be an embarrassment for John Kennedy’s efforts to place a man on the moon.

• If Monroe revealed that JFK had given her classified information, Kennedy could have faced criminal charges. Other government officials likely also wanted to keep Monroe from revealing secrets they did not want to be made public. So government agents killed her by lethal injection and made it look like a suicide. Burleson says that Robert Kennedy was in the room with Monroe when she died. He cites accounts from Monroe’s maid and handyman and neighbors who said they saw Robert Kennedy enter Monroe’s house on the night she died, accompanied by two men, one of whom had a black bag, similar to a doctor on a house call.

• Burleson noted that investigators found no fingerprints at all in Monroe’s guest house, not even her own. A toxicology report on Monroe’s death indicated that she had ingested about 50 to 90 pills worth of barbiturates, an abnormally large amount. But Monroe needed a large glass of water to swallow any pills, and the water in the bathroom sink at the estate’s guest house she was in had been turned off. Burleson claims that the medical examiner signed Monroe’s death certificate under duress.

• Finally, Burleson cites a National Security Council document obtained by a detective agency that mentions Monroe’s name. The subject line of the document refers to “Project Moondust” – a project aimed at collecting space debris. The document also mentions MJ-12, the name of the secret group that President Harry Truman put together to covertly investigate UFO-related matters.

 

Hollywood, a high-level government conspiracy, political power and UFOs were all at the center of a presentation by a writer who claims Marilyn Monroe’s death was part of a cover-up to keep classified information about the existence from UFOs from being made public.

People were packed into a room at the International UFO Museum & Research Center Friday, for the hour-long presentation by Donald Burleson, a writer and New Mexico state director of the Mutual UFO Network. He said Monroe’s death and what he claims as a cover-up is a national disgrace.

The corpse of actress Marilyn Monroe is removed to the morgue on a stretcher by a police officer. Monroe was found dead of a barbiturate overdose in her bedroom, an apparent suicide.

“Some of the ranchers around here like to say the more you stir it, the more it stinks, and it is a very apt description,” he said to the audience about Monroe’s death.

Monroe was 36 years old when she was found dead in 1962 at her Brentwood estate. The official cause of death was ruled a probable suicide after swallowing barbiturates.

Burleson though argues Monroe was murdered and that Robert Kennedy — U.S. attorney general at the time of Monroe’s death and brother to President John F. Kennedy — had something to do with it.

He even claims that Robert Kennedy was in the room with Monroe when she died. He cites accounts from Monroe’s maid and handyman and neighbors who said they saw Robert Kennedy enter Monroe’s house, including once the night she died, accompanied by two men, one of which had a black bag, similar to the kind a doctor would carry when making a house call.

Two Experts Offer Tips on How to Spot an Unidentified Flying Object Near You

Listen to “E27 7-12-19 Two Experts Offer Tips on How to Spot an Unidentified Flying Object Near You” on Spreaker.
by Abby Haglage                     July 2, 2019                     (yahoo.com)

• July 2nd was “World UFO Day”, commemorating the July 2, 1947 UFO crash in Roswell, NM. Seventy-two years later, people are still fascinated with the UFO phenomenon.

• In a New York Times exposé , two Navy pilots revealed that they had spotted UAPs flying over the East Coast almost daily for more than six months between 2014 and 2015. Experts have many theories as to where UFOs come from, ranging from glitches in radar technology to spacecraft belonging to other nations. Although the Navy pilots’ reports are credible, they do not link these objects to extra-terrestrial beings. In fact, there is no evidence that does so. The Roswell crash itself was officially just debris made up of rubber strips, tinfoil, and paper.

• Origins and cause aside, how can people actually spot a UFO? Astronomer Chris Rutkowski says that a place with a good view of the sky is crucial, and the later at night the better. “Most UFO sightings came between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m.” “I’d personally recommend simply finding a dark location at night, away from city lights, and watching the skies.”

• According to Rutkowski, places with higher populations tend to have more sightings. But “(UFO) ‘hot spots’ come and go from year to year,” says Rutkowski . “So in some years, the state with the most reports by population could be Vermont, while it might shift to Missouri another year.”

• Rutkowski also suggests using tracking app technology. “There are many planetarium and satellite tracking apps you can get that can help you pick out objects in the sky, and see which ones aren’t stars and planets!” he says. The app store lists a number of helpful ones with high ratings, including Orbitrack and ISS Detector.

• Jan C. Harzan of MUFON says knowing the places where UFOs are often spotted is key. “On a per capita basis Maine and Arizona are the two best states to see a UFO,” Harzan says. “But UFO sightings happen all over the world.”

• Rutkowski is of the opinion that UFOs are not aliens from another world. Harzan does believe in extraterrestrials. But both men agree that the chances of a civilian spotting a UFO in the United States are good. Says Rutkowski, “Polls have shown that 10 percent of all North Americans believe they have seen UFOs — in the USA alone. That’s about 33 million people.”

[Editor’s Note]   What I find disturbing is that the new normal which the mainstream is pushing is that, yes it is now undisputed that UFOs exist. But these thousands of UFO sightings cannot be of an extraterrestrial origin, because extraterrestrials do not exist. Once again the skeptics use the fact that the government has been hiding evidence, ridiculing witnesses, and covering up the ET presence for the past 72 years – to argue that there is no “actual” evidence of extraterrestrials. But the evidence is there for anyone who cares to do a little research.

 

On July 2, 1947, a rancher in Roswell, New Mexico, stumbled on what appeared to be debris from a “flying saucer” made up of “rubber strips, tinfoil, and rather tough paper.” Baffled, he turned the materials over to the sheriff, who began an investigation. The event, later known as the Roswell UFO Incident, would eventually be recognized as the first sighting of an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) in the U.S.

Seventy-two years later, the rancher’s discovery is one that is still commemorated, a day that is now officially known as: “World UFO Day.”

Chris Rutkowski

Aimed at both awareness and fun, the day celebrates the original sighting, while also recognizing how many have been recorded since. Although the vast majority of these have been shared by civilians, the U.S. government has confirmed its own encounters with what it calls “unexplained aerial phenomena” (UAPs).

Last month in a New York Times expose, two Navy pilots revealed that they had spotted UAPs flying over the East Coast almost daily for more than six months between 2014 and 2015. To be sure, although their reports are credible, they do not link these objects to extra-terrestrial beings. And in fact, there is no evidence that does so. Experts have many theories as to where these objects do come from, ranging from glitches in radar technology to spacecraft belonging to other nations.

Origins and cause aside, how do people interested in UFOs actually spot one? In honor of World UFO day, Yahoo Lifestyle tracked down two experts to find out.

Find an open view of the sky

While it’s important to note that places with higher populations tend to have more sightings, longtime ufologist (UFO expert) and acclaimed astronomer Chris Rutkowski says that “a good view of the sky,” is crucial. “Especially a horizon,” he tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “So downtown Manhattan might not be better than Mesa, Arizona, overall.”

Jan C. Harzan

Know the states where it’s most common

According to Jan C. Harzan, executive director of the nonprofit MUFON (a UFO investigation & research organization), knowing the places where they’re spotted the most is key. “On a per capita basis Maine and Arizona are the two best states to see a UFO,” Harzan tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “But UFO sightings happen all over the world.”

Irvine-Based UFO Group Marks 50 Years of Watching the Skies

Listen to “E23 7-8-19 Irvine-Based UFO Group Marks 50 Years of Watching the Skies” on Spreaker.
by Ben Brazil                   June 26, 2019                       (latimes.com)

• The Mutual UFO Network, or ‘MUFON’, is an international research nonprofit that investigates UFO sightings. Headquartered in Irvine, California, the group has spent decades investigating reports and sightings of UFOs worldwide with chapters in all 50 states and about 40 countries. A symposium at Hotel Irvine July 26th to 28th marked the organization’s 50th anniversary.

• Reports are gathered from each chapter and funneled through the Irvine office. Jan Harzan worked as Orange County MUFON section director from 1995 to 2013. He also earned a degree in nuclear engineering at UCLA and worked as an IBM executive for 37 years. Today the 64-year-old serves as the executive director of MUFON.

• For five decades, MUFON’s volunteers have investigated more than 120,000 cases. There are more than 600 trained investigators worldwide, as the organization receives about 500 to 1,000 reports a month. About 30% of them go unexplained. Harzan says the study of UFOs “has had this stigma for years.” “Anybody who saw a UFO was considered a crazy person.” “The military and intelligence community don’t think you or I have the right to know this stuff exists.”

• Harzan believes the stigma surrounding UFOs may be fading as more reports come to light. The New York Times recently reported that several Navy pilots reported encounters with UFOs, and US senators have received briefings on these sightings. “[W]e are entering a new era,” Harzan said. “It’s no longer, ‘Are UFOs fact or fiction?’ It’s ‘UFOs are real, deal with it.’ Now the questions will shift to who are they and why are they here?”

• Harzan thinks that aliens are intergalactic observers, monitoring the activities of the ‘apes with the nukes’. “They are interested in our nuclear capabilities,” Harzan says. “My personal opinion, I think they are watching over us to make sure we don’t kill ourselves.”

• When Harzan was a boy of 10 years old, he saw a UFO in his backyard in Thousand Oaks. The craft was about 10 feet long and 3 feet high, smooth and metallic on the outside with a corrugated metal landing gear. It hummed like a transformer on a telephone pole. Harzan says, “I don’t know what it was, but it wasn’t ours.”

• Investigator Linda Flechtner had experiences with UFOs when she was a teenager and started working with MUFON about six years ago out of the Irvine office. She’s always discussed UFOs with her brother and sister who’ve both been MUFON investigators for nearly 30 years. Of the 300 cases she’s investigated, about 20 of them are classified as ‘unidentified’. One of her most memorable cases involved a pilot who encountered an interactive orb as he was flying. “He chased it, and it played with him,” Flechtner said. “He said he tried to get (behind it) but it interacted with him. Then it took off.”

• MUFON will remain a sanctuary for the sky-gazers,” says Harzan, “… for people who have had (UFO) experiences, and … where people can come and get answers.”

 

The pilots must have been small.

Jan Harzan reckoned the craft was about 10 feet long and 3 feet high. He described it as smooth and metallic on the outside, something similar to a water tank, with corrugated metal landing gear. It hummed like a transformer on a telephone pole.

“It’s like it had been born as one piece,” Harzan said. “I don’t know what it was, but it wasn’t ours.”

Harzan said he first saw a UFO at age 10 while standing in his backyard in Thousand Oaks. The experience, whatever it may have been, stuck with him. The 64-year-old Newport Beach resident now serves as the executive director of the Mutual UFO Network, or MUFON, an international research nonprofit.

Harzan works out of MUFON headquarters in Irvine, the central hub of a network with locations in all 50 states and about 40 countries.

The organization is marking its 50th anniversary at its annual symposium, July 26 to 28 at Hotel Irvine.

The group has spent decades investigating reports and sightings worldwide, seeking to provide an answer to one of humanity’s central questions: Are we alone? But the organization has also acted as a refuge for those who believe they have experienced the incomprehensible and wonder what secrets the sky may harbor.

The nonprofit has investigated more than 120,000 cases. Most end up being drones, balloons, a planet. About 30% of cases go unexplained.

Everything is funneled through the Irvine office. Annual reports are gathered from each chapter.

About four people regularly work in the office. The conference room is filled with UFO-related books. The back wall is lined with dozens of file boxes spanning five decades of investigation.

“The military and intelligence community don’t think you or I have the right to know this stuff exists,” Harzan said.

Investigators are volunteers. They are trained with a field investigator manual. There are more than 600 investigators worldwide. The ranks are needed as the organization receives about 500 to 1,000 reports a month.

No one else it seems will listen to their stories without presupposition.

“It has had this stigma for years,” Harzan said. “Anybody who saw a UFO was considered a crazy person.”
