History Channel Greenlights ‘The Secret Of Skinwalker Ranch,’ Which Delves Into UFO Sightings In The Area

by Rachel Tsoumbakos                    June 24, 2019                        (inquisitr.com)

• A+E Network television distribution and HISTORY (formerly the History Channel) has announced the development of a new UFO/paranormal non-fiction series entitled The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch. It will delve into the unexplained occurrence of alleged paranormal and UFO-related sightings at Skinwalker Ranch for at least 200 years, a 512-acre property located in Utah’s Uinta Basin. The ranch itself gets its name from a Native American legend about a shape-shifting creature referred to as “The Skinwalker”.

• Since the 1950s, the ranch and the area surrounding it has often been referred to as UFO alley and has garnered international media attention. In 1996, billionaire businessman and UFO enthusiast, Robert Bigelow, purchased the property and embarked on his own research into the Skinwalker Ranch. Three years ago, the ranch was sold to an anonymous buyer. Over the years, much study has gone into the area, some of which is believed to have been secretly funded by the US Government. But there has been little official access granted to the media and only a handful of documentary crews have been allowed access inside the ranch.

• Executive producer Kevin Burns, who is also the creator for HISTORY’s The Curse of Oak Island, will be “gaining full and unprecedented access to the ranch as he tries to uncover the truth about this strange location. The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch is being developed by Prometheus Entertainment and Letter 10 Productions. A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights.

 

The creator of The Curse of Oak Island is bringing a new series to History Channel with The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch. The new nonfiction series will delve into the unexplained occurrence of alleged paranormal and UFO-related sightings at the location.

According to Deadline, The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch is currently the working title for this new series.

Executive producer Kevin Burns, who is famous for The Curse of Oak Island and Ancient Aliens, will be “gaining full and unprecedented access to one of the most infamous and secretive hotspots of paranormal and UFO-related activities on earth” as he tries to uncover the truth about this strange location.

Skinwalker Ranch is a 512-acre property located in Utah’s Uinta Basin that has been host to claims of multiple UFO sightings and paranormal activity dating back as much as 200 years. Along with the suspected paranormal activity and allegations of UFO sightings, the ranch has had its fair share of reported cases of animal mutations. The ranch itself gets its name from a Native American legend about a shape-shifting creature referred to as The Skinwalker.

Since the 1950s, the ranch and the area surrounding it has often been referred to as UFO alley and has garnered international media attention. Over the years, much study has gone into the area, some of which is believed to have been secretly funded by the U.S. Government.

Travel Channel: Team Explores the Alien Highway

by Susan Leighton                     May 26, 2019                      (1428elm.com)

• Chuck Zukowski, a former law enforcement officer in Colorado turned UFO-Paranormal investigator. Today he is the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Deputy Director of Mutilation Investigations. For years, he studied cattle and horse mutilations in Colorado as well as other parts of the country. His research into this phenomenon yielded an interesting concept which is known as the Paranormal Highway of America Theory.

• Zukowski noticed that most animal mutilations and UFO sightings occur on the 37th parallel – on the borders of Utah and Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Kansas and Oklahoma. Along this latitude you’ll find Area 51 and Dulce, NM.

• Zukowski’s theory was highlighted on the Science Channel series, The Unexplained Files in 2014. Now the Travel Channel (which is fast becoming the home of paranormal television) will feature Zukowski and his team on Alien Highway, set to premiere on June 12th. The first episode of Alien Highway tackles the famous Skinwalker Ranch in Utah, where – according to Native American lore – a malevolent witch turns into various animals at will, and may turn out to be alien.

 

Travel Channel embarks on Alien Highway with Chuck Zukowski, a former law enforcement officer in Colorado turned UFO-Paranormal investigator. The skill set that he acquired while being on the job serve him well as he delves into fringe topics with just the right amount of skepticism.

At present, Zukowski is the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Deputy Director of Mutilation Investigations. For years, he studied cattle and horse mutilations in Colorado as well as other parts of the country. His research into this phenomenon yielded an interesting concept which is known as the Paranormal Highway of America Theory.

This came about after Zukowski began noticing that most mutilations and UFO sightings occur on the 37th parallel. Also known as the UFO Highway, these hot spots can be found on the borders of Utah and Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico as well as Kansas and Oklahoma.

Just exactly what do you find along this particular latitude? Area 51 and the rumored Dulce, NM underground base are just some of the locations on this stretch of road. Zukowski’s theory was highlighted on the Science Channel series, The Unexplained Files in 2014.

Now, according to the press release from Travel Channel, (which is fast becoming the home of paranormal television) Zukowski and his team will be embarking on a new adventure for the network. Alien Highway is set to premiere on June 12 at 10:00 p.m.

The Paranormal Roots of the Pentagon’s UFO Program

by Alejandro Rojas                    May 15, 2019                     (denofgeek.com)

• The Pentagon’s five-year, $22M ‘Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program’ (AATIP) UFO study program, headed by Luis Elizondo, which The New York Times revealed in a December 2017 article (see here), did not begin with interest in UFOs. It began with the Defense Intelligence Agency’s interest in the paranormal activities going on at billionaire Robert Bigelow’s ‘Skinwalker Ranch’ in Utah. The original name for the secret project was the Advanced Aerospace Weapons System Application Program (AAWSAP).

• Soon, the fundamentalist Christians within the various US intelligence agencies began to raise their religious concerns. “They’re basically high-level people in different intelligence agencies… who think that anything involving UFOs and the paranormal is satanic,” said George Knapp (the I-Team Las Vegas television journalist who has been closely following this story). “Certain senior government officials thought our collection of facts on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) was dangerous to their philosophical beliefs,” said Elizondo. “[T]he data was a threat to their (Christian) belief system.”

• By 2008, the pressure from the Christian right to end these demonic “paranormal investigations” caused them to create a sub-group inside of AAWSAP that focused only on military UFO cases. This was AATIP. When Elizondo took over as the head of the program in 2010, he only worked within the AATIP UFO division while the DIA closed the AAWSAP paranormal division. By 2012, the AATIP was closed down as well (so they say), and Elizondo left the government to work with Tom DeLonge’s ‘To The Stars Academy’.

• The DIA had initially approached Las Vegas billionaire Robert Bigelow “to visit Mr. Bigelow’s ranch in the Uintah Basin of Utah, where he conducted research”. The original AAWSAP Paranormal division’s investigations included “bizarre creatures, poltergeist activity, invisible entities, orbs of light, animal and human injuries and much more,” according to a senior manager on the project.

• Bigelow’s first significant foray into the unknown was an organization created in 1995 called the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (NIDS). Its purpose was to conduct scientific investigations of the paranormal. Bigelow bought the Skinwalker Ranch in 1996. By the time the DIA official had approached him, Bigelow had already spent decades and large sums of money researching the paranormal.

• Among the paranormal manifestations at the Skinwalker Ranch were floating orbs and a giant wolf-like creature that attacked cattle, could withstand multiple point-blank gunshots, and seemed to disappear into thin air. On one occasion, NIDS investigators were observing the ranch from the edge of a bluff when one of them noticed a light in the forest below. The light began to grow. Once it became a couple of feet wide, they say it looked like a tunnel opening up, and they saw a creature within. It was large and black with no face. It crawled out of the light and into the dark forest. The light then began to disappear until it was gone.

• After the DIA began investigating the Skinwalker Ranch in 2007, DIA officials met with Nevada Senator Harry Reid about starting a paranormal research program. Senator Reid, a friend of Bigelow’s, shared Bigelow’s interest in the topic and found bipartisan support from a couple of fellow members of Congress to secure funding and get the project launched in 2007. Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS) won the government contract to manage the project.

• John Alexander, a retired Colonel in U.S. Army Intelligence, helped organize NIDS investigations. “What we learned was that the events were real and tangible, and definitely occurring,” Alexander explained. “These weren’t figments of someone’s imagination, or folklore or any of these sorts of things.”

 

At the end of 2017, The New York Times broke the story of a secretive Pentagon program with a budget of $22 million to investigate UFOs called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). The man who exposed the existence of the program, Luis Elizondo, was the former head of the project. Elizondo’s ongoing efforts to investigate the UFO mystery with his new employer, the To the Stars Academy (TTSA), will be featured in a History Channel series premiering May 31 called Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation.

However, what The New York Times apparently did not know when they published their story is that the program went by a different name at its inception, and the scope of the program was much broader than just UFOs. In fact, according to a senior manager on the project, the investigations included “bizarre creatures, poltergeist activity, invisible entities, orbs of light, animal and human injuries and much more.”

It is unknown whether Undisclosed will cover the paranormal aspects of the program. Although Elizondo did work with this paranormal project, he only worked in the UFO division. By the time he was the head of the entire program, the UFO division was all that was left. The rest of the program had been shut down, and you will never guess why. It wasn’t because people inside the Department of Defense (DoD) thought the program was too weird, although some did. It was shut down because of demonic forces.

Don’t worry, demons didn’t attack the Pentagon, but apparently, some people inside the government were afraid the potentially paranormal incidents being investigated could be demonic, especially scary occurrences taking place at a ranch in Utah, and they wanted no part of it. They didn’t want the government messing with demons either, so they lobbied for the program to be ended and it was.

This may sound extremely odd, but according to those involved, it’s true.

The New York Times story that broke the Pentagon UFO program began when an official with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) approached Las Vegas billionaire Robert Bigelow “to visit Mr. Bigelow’s ranch in Utah, where he conducted research.”

That sounds innocent enough, but what the article did not cover is what Bigelow researched at this ranch in Utah. Bigelow was known for his interest in the paranormal and UFOs, and by the time the DIA official had approached him, Bigelow had already spent decades and large sums of money researching the paranormal. Bigelow’s first significant foray into the unknown was an organization created in 1995 called the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (NIDS). Its  purpose was to conduct scientific investigations of the paranormal.
