UFOS AND PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS
Richard and Victor Viggiani (Zland News Service) welcomes a former Pentagon official turned UFO lawyer/lobbyist and a Canadian UFO researcher to discuss what various US Presidents have known about UFOs.
GUEST: Larry W. Bryant’s UFO-research legacy began in 1957 when he became a member of the now-defunct, Washington, D.C.-based National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena. Since that time, he has contributed UFO-E.T.-related articles, essays, book reviews, and commentaries to numerous newspapers, magazines, journals, and newsletters. A specialist in exposing and challenging official UFO secrecy, he now writes a column – “Bryant’s UFO View” – for the newsstand periodical UFO Magazine. His long-time use of the U. S. Freedom of Information Act to ferret out various federal agencies’ hard-core evidence of UFO reality has resulted in not just a history book (UFO Politics at the White House: Citizens Rally ’round Jimmy Carter’s Promise – 2nd edition, 2005; Galde Press) but also in several FOIA lawsuits against such agencies as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency. In 2007, Galde Press published what Bryant calls “the world’s longest book review” – Conjuring Gretchen: The Saga of Virginia’s Preacher-Hypnotist. And, in 2010, he published his first work of fiction, a Fortean novella in the form of a fictive memoir – Conjoined: The Story of Rex and Roxanne – The World’s First Androgynous Siamese Twins. Bryant resides in Alexandria, Virginia, retiring there in 1994 after 36 years of federal civil service in various writing/editing positions. In the past few years, he’s been publishing a web log at ufoview.posterous.com, now supplemented by a free online newsletter at tinyletter.com/ufoview-updates.
GUEST: Grant Cameron became involved in Ufology in May 1975 with personal sightings of an object which locally became known as Charlie Red Star. The sightings occurred in Carman, Manitoba about 25 miles north of the Canada-US border. Hundreds of other people sighted objects at the same time during a prolonged flap of sightings.Over the next 18 months he had many sightings of large objects and small (monitor) objects in the area. He spent countless days in the area photographing a series of strange objects and interviewing hundreds of witnesses who were involved. After composing a manuscript about the flap, he moved on to research the work of the late Wilbert B. Smith. Smith headed up the Canadian government flying saucer investigation known as Project Magnet which ran from 1950 to 1954. During two decades of work on Smith, Cameron was able to collect most of Smith’s files and material written. He interviewed most of the associates around Smith who worked on the flying saucer investigation. He has produced a CD-Rom data disk that hold most of the documents from the Smith files, along with 12 hours of audio related to Smith’s work.
In the past few years Cameron has turned his research interests to the involvement and actions of the President of the United States in the UFO problem. He has made 20+ trips to the National Archives and most of the various Presidential archives looking for presidential UFO material. One highlight his presidential UFO research was the chance to question Vice-president Dick Cheney on his knowledge of the UFO subject. Another highlight of the presidential UFO research was a FOIA to the White House Office of Science and Technology which yielded 1,000 pages of UFO documents from the Clinton administration. Many of these findings have been written up on The Presidents UFO Website www.presidentialufo.com.
9/11: EXPOSIVE EVIDENCE
Richard welcomes Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth Founder, Richard Gage to talk about his new documentary, 9/11 Explosive Evidence: Experts Speak Out. The film features cutting-edge 9/11 evidence from more than 50 experts in their fields – high-rise architects, structural engineers, physicists, chemical engineers, firefighters, metallurgists, explosives experts, controlled demolition technicians, and more. They are each highly qualified. Several have Ph.D’s, including renowned scientist, Lynn Margulis who was awarded the National Medal of Science, and who exposes in this film the fraud of NIST and discusses how the scientific method should have been applied to the destruction of evidence and to the high temperature incendiaries in the WTC dust samples.
GUEST: Richard Gage, AIA, is a San Francisco Bay Area architect and a member of the American Institute of Architects. He is the founding member of AE911Truth. He has been a practicing architect for over 20 years and has worked on most types of building construction, including numerous fire-proofed steel-framed buildings. Most recently he worked on the construction documents for a $400M mixed-use urban project with 1.2 million square feet of retail, parking structure, and 320,000 square feet of mid-rise office space—altogether about with 1,200 tons of steel framing.
