We recently pointed out the news on the front pages of The New York Times, The Washington Post, and a myriad of other media recently about a secret Pentagon group that studies “UFOs” — usually more the terrain of tabloids.
“The Defense Department has never before acknowledged the existence of the program, which it says it shut down in 2012,” The Times reported on Saturday. “But its backers say that, while the Pentagon ended funding for the effort at that time, the program remains in existence.” [See story]
One of its “backers” — and in fact the fellow who, through a close connection to Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, pushed for the investigation, is an aerospace multi-billionaire named Robert Bigelow, a real-estate tycoon (owner of Budget Suites of America) and aerospace entrepreneur who is currently working with NASA to produce expandable craft for humans to use in space.
On CBS’s “60 Minutes” in May, Mr. Bigelow, whose company also was under contract with the Pentagon study, said he was “absolutely convinced” that aliens exist and that U.F.O.s have visited earth. According to The Times: “Mr. Reid said his interest in U.F.O.s came from Mr. Bigelow. In 2007, Mr. Reid said in the interview, Mr. Bigelow told him that an official with the Defense Intelligence Agency had approached him wanting to visit Mr. Bigelow’s ranch in Utah, where he conducted research. Mr. Reid said he met with agency officials shortly after his meeting with Mr. Bigelow and learned that they wanted to start a research program on U.F.O.s. Mr. Reid then summoned Ted Stevens, an Alaska Republican, and Daniel K. Inouye, a Hawaii Democrat, to a secure room in the Capitol.”
Cloak and dagger stuff — or was the topmost level of government becoming involved with something occult?
As it turns out, the ranch mentioned — the one owned by Bigelow — was purchased by the billionaire because it has a long and bizarre history not just of “extraterrestrial” but of paranormal (read, occult) happenings.
It is supposed to be the terrain for old Indian “skinwalkers” — medicine men or witch doctors who could transfigure into various entities, especially animals.
It is also notorious for strange lights in the sky — not dissimilar from ghostly “orbs” (or what the Indians called “spirit lights”).
No, not from another world but from another, spiritual dimension. The ranch, located in west Uintah County bordering the Ute Indian Reservation, was popularly dubbed the “UFO ranch” due to its ostensible fifty-year history of odd events said to have taken place there.
To round it all out, Bigelow’s Skinwalker Ranch is also known for bigfoot sightings, animals with piercing red eyes, Indian ghosts, and a terrifying lake “monster,” not to mention poltergeist phenomena such as objects thrown (or shot) from nowhere.
Typical parapsychological fare.
Two and two equals four — at least as far as Skinwalker Ranch: It’s occult. It has a long history of Native American ritual. Perhaps we will go there and have a “special report” on it shortly.
The point for now: if a spirit can make itself look like strange animals, then perhaps it can make itself look like an extraterrestrial also… (or — not to discount the possibility of life elsewhere — a “flying saucer”).
