The Umbrella Academy’s Majestic 12 in Real Life

July 31, 2020                              (heavy.com)

• In Episode 4 of Netflix’ “The Umbrella Academy”, we’re introduced to “The Majestic 12.” We’re told that they’re a secret committee of science, military, and Deep State members, and that John F. Kennedy was the first president to try to publicly reveal their existence and “push them into the limelight”. Look how that turned out. They are powerful and well-connected.“They are are not to be trifled with,” we are warned.

• Also known as “MJ-12”, this group is at the center of a number of UFO conspiracy theories. They were formed in 1947 by an executive order issued by President Harry Truman. Their mission was to investigate and recover, if possible, alien spacecraft – beginning with the crashed Roswell craft in 1947.
• Their very existence was only revealed in 1984 when a documentary film producer by the name of Jaime Shandera claimed that someone anonymous had put an envelope containing a roll of film in his mailbox. When Shandera developed the film, it revealed eight pages of classified government documents. These documents supposedly showed not only the government’s investigation of alien craft, but the creation of The Majestic 12.

• Debunkers pointed to supposed flaws in the documents like incorrect ranks, the use of “media” instead of “press” and formatting that didn’t match the formats of other government documents of the era. The FBI later announced that the pages were bogus and wrote “BOGUS” in all caps over the documents.

• Today, it has come to light that the US government and military have continued investigating UFOs, although not the ‘alien’ type, they say. The US Intelligence Budget for 2021 includes a mandate for the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force, under the Office of Naval Intelligence, to submit a report of all their collected information within 180 days from June 17.

• While the idea of a secretive “Majestic 12” isn’t at the forefront of the American’s zeitgeist right now, there is indeed a renewed interest in UFOs. A recent article in the New York Times reported that the Pentagon may have obtained vehicles or parts of vehicles that aren’t from Earth. Eric W. Davis, an astrophysicist and consultant for the Pentagon’s UFO program, said he gave a classified briefing in March to a DoD agency about retrievals of “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.” And on April 27th, the DoD authorized the official release of the three infamous videos of UFOs taken by Navy pilots.

 

In Episode 4 of The Umbrella Academy, we’re introduced to the concept of “The Majestic 12.” You might be interested to know that they exist in real life too. Read on to see the photo of them that was shared in the fourth episode and to learn more about the group in real life.

In Episode 4, we’re shown the photo above of “The Majestic 12.”

We’re told that they’re a secret committee of science, military, and Deep State members. According to the show, President John F. Kennedy was the first president to try to push them into the limelight. “They are are not to be trifled with,” we’re warned.

The photo above shows 11 out of 12 of the members of The Majestic 12. Apparently they are powerful, well-connected, and pull some serious strings. We’ll learn more about them on the show, but this article only focuses on what was revealed about them in Episode 4 (and what we know about them in real life.)

The Majestic 12 in Real Life

The mythology of The Majestic 12 is every bit as intriguing as their story in The Umbrella Academy. Also known as “MJ-12” among conspiracy theorists, this group is at the center of a number of UFO conspiracy theories. The myth is that they were formed in 1947 by an executive order issued by President Harry Truman, and they include scientists, government officials, and military leaders. Their mission was to investigate (and recover if possible) alien spacecraft. Supposedly, their first mission was to recover the craft in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.

The first idea of their existence came from “leaked” government documents in 1984. Jaime Shandera, a documentary producer, said that the leaked files were dropped in his mail slot in an envelope in 1984, Slate reported. Shandera said he received a roll of film that, when developed, revealed eight pages of classified documents. These documents supposedly revealed not only the investigation of alien craft, but the creation of The Majestic 12.

Some people pointed out that the documents had flaws, like incorrect ranks, the use of “media” instead of “press” (when “press” was the more common term at the time), and formatting that didn’t match the formats of other government documents, Slate reported.

The FBI later announced that the pages were bogus and wrote “BOGUS” in all caps over the documents.

World UFO Day – July 2, 2020

HAPPY WORLD UFO DAY!!!!

 

“I want to believe.” These are the words of notorious X-Files hero Fox Mulder, who convinced an entire generation that the truth is out there – we just have to find it. But on July 2, it won’t only be sci-fi enthusiasts trying out their ET sleuthing skills, as everyone on planet earth will have to opportunity to celebrate World UFO Day.

UFOs have been the stuff of legend for centuries, but it wasn’t until the 1950s that freaky flying saucers grabbed national and international mainstream attention. Since then, UFOs have captured the minds of old and young alike, and witness’ stories have proliferated around the world.

World UFO Day serves as a way for everyone to come together and watch the skies on the same night in search of UFOs, but that’s not its only purpose. Many see the holiday as a way to spread knowledge and awareness of UFOs, making a case for their existence, and hoping to make disciples out of the dubious.

So why July 2? For many, this date represents the anniversary of the famed and all-but-confirmed 1947 incident in Roswell, New Mexico. Believers claim a UFO crash landed there, deep in the American southwest, but that the government has been covering it up ever since. What do you believe?

Wernher von Braun and the Roswell Incident

 

Article by Christina Stock                           March 2, 2020                               (rdrnews.com)

• At the end of World War II, the U.S. Government brought a number of prominent German scientists to America under what was called ‘Operation Paperclip’. One of these scientists was the now legendary Wernher von Braun (pictured above), who functioned as a key figure in the design of American rocket technology, including the Saturn rocket that first took us to the moon in 1969.

• When a UFO crash occurred northwest of Roswell in early July 1947, President Harry Truman needed to make some quick decisions. As we all know, he ordered the military to cordon off the area and take control of the crash site. Truman also decided to bring in civilian scientists to examine the crashed UFO. This may have included Robert Oppenheimer and Wernher von Braun. In his book, “Is E.T. Here?”, UFO researcher Robert Trundle indicates that von Braun was indeed one of the scientists Truman brought in on the Roswell UFO crash.

• In the book, Trundle cites an account given by Clark McClelland, astronaut and former science officer with the Kennedy Space Center, who describes a memorable exchange he once had with von Braun. During one of many meetings of Cape Canaveral launch crews, McClelland and von Braun stepped outside onto a patio for a chat. The conversation drifted to the 1947 Roswell incident. Von Braun and his colleagues were working at the White Sands Testing Range near Roswell, testing captured V-2 rockets. McClelland asked von Braun whether the rumored Roswell UFO crash really happened.

• On condition that McClelland wouldn’t repeat any of it while von Braun was still alive — a pledge which McClelland kept — von Braun told McClelland that in fact he had been asked to help inspect the crashed UFO. Von Braun described the craft’s material as being a thin, unfamiliar substance more resembling some sort of skin than metal. Some pieces were like silvery chewing gum wrappers, von Braun said.

[Editor’s Note]  Wernher von Braun died in 1977. In 1978, investigative reporter Stanton Friedman interviewed former Air Force intelligence officer Major Jesse Marcel, a Roswell eye witness who said that it was no weather balloon that crashed in the desert, but a UFO. Thus, the legend of the Roswell UFO crash entered the public zeitgeist. And the silvery ‘chewing gum wrapper’ like material that von Braun mentioned? Jesse Marcel hid several sheets of it in his hot water heater at his home in Houma, Louisiana. It may still be there today. (see ExoArticle here)

 

When the UFO crash northwest of Roswell occurred in early July 1947, President Harry Truman, upon receiving that fateful phone call in the wee hours, must have needed to make some quick and shrewd decisions about what to do. As we all know, this obviously ended up including a cordoning off of the crash site and the control of that site by the military.

Some other actions must have been needed as well, notably including the decision to bring in some civilian scientists to examine what had to be the most remarkable object ever encountered in human history.

Various speculations and inferences over the years have been made as to who some of those experts might have been, for example, my own conclusions about consultation with Robert Oppenheimer. In addition, another interesting choice has come to light.

At the end of World War II, the U.S. Government brought a number of prominent German scientists to America, in what was called Operation Paperclip. One of these scientists was the now legendary Wernher von Braun, who functioned as a key figure in the design of American rocket technology, including the Saturn rocket that first took us to the moon in 1969.

Recently, UFO researcher George Filer has explored, published in his online journal Filer’s Files, an account given by Ufologist Robert Trundle in his book, “Is E.T. Here?” to the effect that von Braun was one of the scientists Truman brought in on the Roswell UFO crash. Trundle cites an account given by Clark McClelland, astronaut and former science officer with the Kennedy Space Center, who describes a memorable exchange he once had with von Braun.
