Are Our Politicians Really Aliens?

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 8:01 AM

There have been conspiracy theories since the beginning of time. I’d like to look at some of the biggest political conspiracies of all time—from around the world. Sit back and discover some of the biggest secrets in the world—that may, or may not have even happened.

British Prime Minister Harold Wilson Was A Secret Soviet agent

Soviet defector Anatoliy Golitsyn is thought to have claimed that Wilson was a KGB spy. He further claimed that Hugh Gaitskell was assassinated by the KGB so that he could be replaced as Labor leader by Harold Wilson. Furthermore, former MI5 officer Peter Wright claimed in his memoirs – Spycatcher – that he had been told that Wilson was a Soviet agent. MI5 repeatedly investigated Wilson over the course of several years before conclusively deciding that he had no relationship with the KGB.

Aliens and Roswell

The event that kick-started more than a half century of conspiracy theories surrounding unidentified flying objects. Something did crash at Roswell, New Mexico, sometime before July 7, 1947 and – at first – the US authorities stated explicitly that this was a flying saucer or disk. Numerous witnesses reported seeing metallic debris scattered over a wide area and at least one reported seeing a blazing craft crossing the sky shortly before it crashed. The conspiracy theory has been fanned by the US military repeatedly changing its story. Within hours of the army telling reporters that it had recovered a crashed saucer, senior officers insisted that the only thing that had fallen from the sky had been a weather balloon.

Did Nasa Fake The Moon Landings?

Some of the theories surrounding this subject are that the Apollo astronauts did not land on the Moon; Nasa and possibly others intentionally deceived the public into believing the landings did occur by manufacturing, destroying, or tampering with evidence, including photos, telemetry tapes, transmissions, and rock samples; and that Nasa and possibly others continue to actively participate in the conspiracy to this day.

The Almighty Illuminati And The New World Order

A conspiracy in which powerful and secretive groups are plotting to rule mankind with a single world government. Many historical events are said to have been engineered by these groups with one goal – the New World Order (NWO). The groups use political finance, social engineering, mind control, and fear-based propaganda to achieve their aims. Signs of the NWO are said to be the pyramid on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, strange and disturbing murals at Denver International Airport, and pentagrams in city plans. International organizations such as the World Bank, the IMF, the European Union, the United Nations, and NATO are listed as founding organizations of the New World Order.

Some Truths Behind The Assassination of the King of Camelot.

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 11:34 AM

bloglrg-camelot

The Kennedy assassination is still considered, by many, to be the ultimate conspiracy. New facts come to light all the time—some of them are disproven—some are never proven either way. What happened to the President is still a mystery—but this blog article is one that has been on my mind for some time. I’d like for us to look at some of the more unusual facts about the assassination.

The Limousine

The limousine Kennedy was riding in at the time of his assassination was a 1961 Lincoln Continental four-door convertible code-named the X-100. After it was examined for evidence following the shooting in Dallas, the X-100 was overhauled, cleaned and returned to service at the White House in mid-1964. It continued to carry presidents until early 1977 and is now on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.

War is Hell

Oswald was arrested in a Texas movie theatre, less than 90 minutes after Kennedy’s shooting. The film that was screening was called War Is Hell! It was billed as being about “Iron guts guys in action who kill for medals… dames… or just to stay alive!”.

Walter

Vice-president Lyndon Johnson told CBS newsman Walter Cronkite in 1969 that he did not discount the possibility Kennedy’s death was the work of a foreign power: “I can’t honestly say that I’ve ever been completely relieved of the fact that there might have been international connections,” he said. Johnson requested the comment be removed from the interview for national security reasons and it only aired after his death.

The Oswald Charge

Oswald was charged with killing Kennedy and a police officer named John Tippit. On November 24, Oswald was himself shot by nightclub operator Jack Ruby while being transferred from the city jail to Dallas county jail. Oswald was taken to the same Parkland Hospital which had received Kennedy less than 48 hours earlier, but was pronounced dead a short time later. Ruby was convicted of Oswald’s murder in 1964 despite a plea of insanity. Ruby developed lung cancer in prison and died in January 1967, also at Parkland Hospital.

Unlucky Presidents

Kennedy was the fourth US president to be assassinated. Others were Abraham Lincoln (1865), James Garfield (1881), and William McKinley (1901). America’s 29th president, Warren G Harding, later revealed to have been a corrupt philanderer, was widely rumoured to have been poisoned by his wife in 1923. Coincidentally, Lincoln and Kennedy, who were elected 100 years apart, were both succeeded by vice-presidents named Johnson. Andrew Johnson became America’s 17th president in 1865, and Lyndon Johnson became the 36th president in 1963.

Warren

In 1964, the report from the President’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, chaired by Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren (the “Warren Commission”) found the shots which killed Kennedy were fired by Oswald, and that he acted alone. It also found Oswald wounded Texas governor John Connally, and killed Tippit while evading arrest. Earl Warren was a former Republican Governor of California, and the GOP’s 1948 vice-presidential nominee.

Other Theories

Alternate theories about the events of November 22, 1963 persist. The 1979 House inquiry fueled theories of a second gunman and a wider conspiracy. Before his death in 2007, one of the Watergate burglars, former CIA Agent E. Howard Hunt, alleged Lyndon Johnson was involved in a conspiracy to kill Kennedy. Historian James Reston Jr says Oswald’s intended target was Governor Connally, not President Kennedy. Perhaps most intriguingly, new analysis of the graphic home movie footage of the assassination shot by Abraham Zapruder has concluded that at one point his camera stopped, crucial frames were missing and that the first of three bullets fired by Oswald was deflected by a street sign.

The TOP 5 Conspiracy Theories

Filed under: Conspiracies — Frank Fiore @ 10:33 AM

When it comes to conspiracies there are certain ones that are above the rest. This blog article is all about the biggest conspiracies ever to become publicly known. From time travel, to mobsters, to Presidents this list has them all—and you may want to research these topics further.

The Philadelphia Experiment

In 1943, a US Navy destroyer was actually made invisible and teleported from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Norfolk, Virginia, in the Philadelphia Experiment or “Project Rainbow”. While records in the Operational Archives Branch of the Naval Historical Center have been examined, no proof confirms the event. Obviously, laws of nature would make the likelihood that the USS Eldridge was rendered invisible fairly slim.

Nonetheless, once the generators were turned on, the massive electromagnetic fields started to build up a fog that concealed the ship from view until the fog itself disappeared, taking the Eldridge with it. The joy of success soon dissipated, as the crew was found to be disoriented and nauseous. Months later, a final test rendered some sailors violently ill. Several went “missing.” Others lost their marbles while an unlikely lot were fused to the metal in the ship’s structure.

If this seems incredible, remember that it was also in the 1940s that the power and destruction of the atomic bomb was unleashed on innocent civilians.

Jimmy Hoffa

Jimmy Hoffa earned a reputation amongst peers as a tough and effective negotiator. After negotiating the union’s first national contract with trucking companies, the Teamsters Union membership grew to more than two million under his leadership. With time, this raised the ire of many, as Hoffa became the subject of many government investigations and prosecutions that ultimately led to his imprisonment in 1967.

Hoffa left prison in 1971, but disappeared four years later. The last time he was spotted was at Machus Red Fox restaurant in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and we have no reason to think that it was the food that killed him. Eight years later, he was finally declared legally dead.

Hoffa took on Big Business when it wasn’t hip, only dangerous. While many respected and revered him for what he contributed to social and employment causes, many other more powerful people sought to put him into “early retirement.”

Big Tobacco’s Big Denial

The list of companies that are socially irresponsible for either hiding facts turning a blind eye or simply ravaging foreign lands just increases as the days go by. But the credit for this list must go to Big Tobacco.

For years, cigarette companies essentially made products that, when used as recommended, would kill you. After the revelation was made that cigarettes were bad for you, Big Tobacco has tried to cover up one thing after another. And while cigarette smoking has reduced, the number of tobacco-related deaths never ceases to go up.

What does not help is that between greedy lobbyists and shallow politicians (is this not a tautology?), no end seems to be in sight. What they could do is replace all of the tobacco farms with hemp and use this as a natural substitute and more natural source of paper, rope and everything else possible. Just don’t hold your breath — whatever’s left of it anyway.

Martin Luther King Jr.

In recent years, Bill Clinton asked Janet Reno to review “new evidence” presented by the family of Martin Luther King Jr. about his assassination 30 years ago. The King family claims that convicted assassin James Earl Ray, who died recently, was just a fall guy caught up in a sweeping conspiracy that included then President Lyndon Johnson, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, J. Edgar Hoover, several army units, as well as organized crime figures.

Whether there is any truth to these claims or whether Ray’s defense lawyer fabricated them remains to be seen. Surely, the original account of King’s murder was rushed by the bureaucrats at the FBI, but more rhetoric should emphasize whether or not Ray was the murderer and whether he was helped by violent white supremacists or government agencies.

To this day, numerous people could be guilty of his assassination.

John F. Kennedy

On November 22, 1963, US Democratic President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was shot in Dallas, Texas. While initial reports named the shooter as Lee Harvey Oswald, several events have since questioned this. Within days, Jack Ruby shot and killed Oswald in front of hundreds of people — obviously to shut him up.

Moreover, several people still wonder what involvement the Kennedy brothers played in Marilyn’s death and ask whether JFK’s death was a result of a settling of accounts. In recent years, Oliver Stone’s take on the assassination raised even more questions, as JFK could have been the target of various individuals and groups.

Even More Doppelganger Sightings

Filed under: Paranormal — Frank Fiore @ 8:11 AM

We are taking a break this week from the BEK encounters to talk about another strange series of occurrences that are taking place across the United States. Doppelgangers. We have already shared some of these stories—which have been very popular with readers. These are situations when an unsuspecting person runs into a carbon copy of themselves. Nobody really knows the truth about doppelgangers—but take a look at this encounter and see what you think about it.

It almost felt like a dream. I woke up to my dog, Lucy, barking. She was upright on the bed where my husband and I were sleeping with our 7 month old daughter, staring at our door like an unknown stranger was out there rummaging around. I thought she was just freaking out over a house noise. We’d only had her for 3 months and she was still a puppy. It could have been anything- our roommate, a creak from the house settling, the awnings moving outside in the breeze- I wasn’t too concerned initially.

I decided the best bet would be to open the door and show her nothing was there. It sounds a bit silly, but it’s what we do with our daughter when she gets scared, and I figured it should work with a puppy, too. I opened the door and she raced to the front door. She stood there, snarling at the door. It was an angry, violent growl, one I had never heard her make before. I looked groggily at her and opened the baby gate blocking the doorway, planning to open the door and show her everything was OK.

The second my hand reached for the deadbolt, Lucy went wild. She started barking and jumped toward me, and when I touched the metal, she suddenly changed her temper. She whimpered, almost like she was afraid and backing down. As her mannerism changed, so did mine- I wasn’t calm anymore. My heart was racing and sinking at the same time. I had been flooded with a mixture of fear and dread. I looked through the peephole. I can’t explain why I looked, but I did. Outside were two kids.

One was just a smidgen shorter than me, and didn’t look much younger. I’m 21, and she looked to be 16 or 17. She was slender and pale. Her hair was a light shade of honey blonde, and she wore it long, about mid-back, with long, thin, blunt bangs in the front that covered most of her eyes. She wore jeans, a light-wash that’s popular right now, and a thin-looking olive colored pullover style hoodie. She held the hand of a small girl, who looked to be around 3 or 4, in the same style jeans and a button-down ivory cardigan. The smaller one looked at the floor shyly, but had the same shade of hair, tied back in a ponytail. She held a stuffed toy under her free arm, and it was identical to one my daughter has- as was their style of dress. Had it not been for the feeling of overwhelming dread and fear, I probably would have asked these children in and given them some tea or hot chocolate to get them out of the bitter cold. Something about them seemed off. At this point, I hadn’t made any noise- I hadn’t shushed the dog or grumbled, nothing- I hadn’t turned on any lights, these kids had no indicators I was at the door. The older one spoke.

She had a voice that was mature, confidant, strong, and completely accentless. She held her head tilted downward, and I couldn’t see her eyes. She said “We have to use your phone.” I stood frozen in fear. How did she know I was there? She raised her head to face me directly, and that was when I saw her eyes. There was a reason I couldn’t see them through her bangs before- they were black, or midnight blue, or a dark, dark purple- they were otherworldly. she said. “Our mother is worried.”

As someone who has always been interested in creepy stories, I knew what she was the second she looked at me through the door. I have never been one to believe in these things- as a staunch Atheist and skeptic when it comes to the paranormal, I had written off many a ghost story from friends and family members eager to tell their tale. I didn’t believe it. Still, I couldn’t rationalize my way out of this- I was standing with nothing but a thin wooden door between me and a Black Eyed Kid. There was no questioning what was right in front of me.

I did not answer her. Slowly and silently, I backed away from the door, Lucy still cowering at my ankles. She kept talking. “Just let us in to use your phone.” I took another step back, and with that step, the tone changed. At first, she seemed polite. When I took that second step back, she became commanding, almost hostile. We’re not going to hurt you. If we wanted to do that, we would have broken in. I’ll ask again. May we come in and use your phone?” Lucy snarled at the door, and I inched backward, though something inside me seemed to be slowly pulling me back toward the door. It wasn’t a physical pulling so much as a subconcious need to go back and let them in.

I got to my room, covered up the window, locked the door, and sat there in the dim light of the nightlight. I heard her call me back to the door once more, and then quiet. I didn’t go back to sleep that night, and I haven’t slept right since. I know from reading about them that BEK’s can’t just come in without permission. I know they haven’t hurt anyone, but I still fear I’ll be the exception. When I told my husband, he said it was just a dream. He keeps telling me to forget it, but this lingering feeling of sadness, this dread when the house is silent at night, this fear of a knock at the door… this tells me otherwise.

More Doppelgangers

Filed under: Paranormal — Frank Fiore @ 8:44 AM

We are taking a break this week from the BEK encounters to talk about another strange series of occurrences that are taking place across the United States. Doppelgangers.

doppelganger_girl

In the summer of 1978, I was out of school for the school holidays. I was eleven years old, or so and I had been in my room playing when I went to my family’s kitchen. We lived in rural Idaho. My mother, father and I lived with my grandmother. My grandmother was sitting in her rocker with a strange, puzzled expression on her face and asked me, “What do you need a dollar for?” I knew nothing about wanting a dollar, and I asked her what she was talking about. She said that I had come downstairs and had asked her for some money. When I said that I hadn’t she believed me. She said that sometimes ‘strange things happen—and that sometimes things can look, act and feel like humans, but they aren’t.”

After that she grasped me and held me in her arms. We prayed together, and I truly felt a bond with a grandmother who had never been that interested in me. As we hugged the room felt deathly cold and the front and back doors flew open with a huge gust of wind. I will never forget the incident. My grandmother was a very wise woman. I still wonder to this day who, what and why something would want to impersonate me? Sometimes I think it was just a spirit trying to help me bond with my grandmother—other times I think it’s something more sinister. It never happened again though, and I am thankful for that. What do you make of that?

Doppelgangers

We are taking a break this week from the BEK encounters to talk about another strange series of occurrences that are taking place across the United States. Doppelgangers. These are situations when an unsuspecting person runs into a carbon copy of themselves. Nobody really knows the truth about doppelgangers—but take a look at this encounter and see what you think about it.

My grandma passed away many years ago. It was a complete shock to the whole family as she had shown no signs of ill health. My mother took her loss badly, as I guess all children do.

Months later and the family was starting to pull itself together. My mother had a striking resemblance to her mother, and she was in the process of dating the man who would become her second husband. She hired a babysitter to watch myself, and my brother while she went out on a date.

The sitter was a local girl, who really wanted us to go to bed. She had her boyfriend coming over. She shooed us off to bed and sat on the couch waiting for her boyfriend to arrive. I hear a commotion downstairs when the door opened and a woman who ‘sounded’ like my mother entered the room. She was screaming, and shouting, and told the sitter to put her clothes on and go home.

The babysitter left and the whole house went silent.

The next morning, I woke up and went downstairs to find my mother angrier than I’d ever seen her. She claimed that she had come home and found nobody watching us. She called the sitter. “Why did you leave my children alone?” The sitter replied, “Well, you told me to leave.” My mother then said, “I certainly did not.”

Confused the sitter said, “Well someone told me to leave, and it certainly looked like you.”

My mother didn’t say anything to the sitter—but she certainly believed to her dying day that her mother had been the one responsible for that mess. We had a different sitter after that, and I never heard anything more about the story.

But sometimes when I think about it—it does make me smile. My grandmother was such a strong woman; she would have certainly behaved that way if she had walked in on a sitter getting ready for her boyfriend.

What do you make of that? Why don’t you check out some of the other stories that have been sent into us here? Check out our other posts.

Looking for Beta Readers

Filed under: IJIN — Frank Fiore @ 12:38 PM

I’ve just completed my new historical fiction novel entitled IJIN and am looking for beta reviewers to read the story and hopefully provide a pre-publication review that I can send along with my submission package to publishers.

IJIN is in the vein of ‘Winds or War’ with twist – but from the Japanese side of the Pacific War. The twist is a story of a young American boy adopted by a Japanese family who has to grow up and come of age against the backdrop of WWII Japan. In the process he joins the kamikaze to attack the American Fleet off Okinawa.

If the book is published I will send you a signed copy for your help.

If you are interested, please email me at frank@frankfiore.com

Here’s the prologue to the story that will give you a good idea what it’s about and how it unfolds.

Hiroshima

August 1945

 

I think of death.

 I sit in a cold, dank cell in the darkened bowels of a military prison in Hiroshima. As I await my execution, I think about another who is also facing death. He was a remarkable young boy; an innocent soul that was coming of age against the backdrop of this ill-conceived war that my country has waged for these past nine dreadful years.

 The story I’m about to tell is my recollection of that boy, maturing amidst this war, with whom I was thrown into contact with over a period of years. It was a war that had cost the lives of millions of my fellow countrymen who bled in the belief of superiority, who burned in the cities that were built on false promises; men who did their duty but ultimately lost their humanity. It was a war of national suicide and the personal perversity of hundreds of thousands of people; a polite and cultured people gone mad – and that young boy, now a teenager, who was tormented by this war, placed himself in harm’s way and was thrown into the turmoil of a plot to overthrow an Emperor.

 Whether it was out of fear, revenge, honor, or personal salvation, I couldn’t say. But this American teenager placed himself of his own free will in the pilot’s seat of a Mitsubishi Zero, joining other young Kamikaze pilots hell-bent on attacking the powerful American fleet off our coast. 

 How did this young American teenage boy arrive at such a strange and startling fate? Perhaps I should start at the beginning.

Another Terrifying Incident With the Black Eyed Kids

Filed under: Paranormal — Frank Fiore @ 1:26 PM

Another terrifying account has come in since we posted last week’s story. You can see it here. These Black Eyed People seem to be terrifying half of the world. Take a look at this account and see what you think… it’s pretty creepy!

One evening I was sitting in my bedroom reading a book. It must have been around 1am, and was a Friday night. My husband worked nights so I usually tried to stay up for him. I heard a knocking. It wasn’t a normal knock; it was a slow, constant one. I got up out of bed to see what it was. I looked out of the window and to my surprise saw two young children. I opened the window and asked them what they wanted at this time of night. They replied by saying a simply, “Let us in.”

Now I didn’t recognize these children at all—they weren’t the kids from next door. They were dressed in black clothes, and looked dirty. I did wonder if they were runaways, and it did cross my mind to call the Sheriff. I said no and asked what for and all I got back from them was, “We want to use your bathroom.” I was quite shocked that children of about I’d say 10 years old wanted to use a stranger’s bathroom at this time of night. So I told them no. I closed the window, but looked at them through the glass, and to my surprise I glanced at their eyes and I have never ever seen eyes like them. They were black, completely black. I got the feeling of evil and unhappiness. It surrounded me. It was horrible.

The knocking continued for two hours. This slow rhythmic knocking that reached all around the house. I picked up the phone several times—but the phone line was dead. I didn’t dare look outside again. When my husband arrived home he said that he didn’t see anything outside, I told him about the phone and he checked it.

It was live. I haven’t seen the kids since.

The Black-Eyed People Strike Down Under

Filed under: Paranormal — Frank Fiore @ 9:04 AM

Since we started sharing these stories of Black-Eyed Kids we have been contacted by a number of people. This tale comes from a reader in Australia who came face-to-face with these kids, and wanted to share his story.

I have been reading a lot of stories about the Black Eyed People lately. I want to share my experience with one of them. This took place in March 2005. I live in Australia and March is the beginning of fall, but the nights can still be quite warm. I was working at a coffee shop in the city at the time and decided to walk home that night. It would take me around forty-five minutes to walk home but figured, what the hey.

I was about half way home and it was already dark. It would have been about 7 p.m. I was just walking past my local library when I noticed a homeless guy who I’d seen around our neighborhood the last few months. He was heading toward me up the sidewalk.

I knew I didn’t like this guy because he was always grinning and staring at me and as I came closer, I made a point of avoiding eye contact. For some reason, as I was passing him, I looked up and into his eyes. They were completely black. Just as the other encounters have mentioned– there was not a single speck of white to be found in his eyes.

He was also grinning at me, all teeth bared and I instantly felt like turning to run. I mean these people absolutely make you feel terrified. It’s like nothing I can explain. Even your bones feel shaky.

I remember being shocked and scared and I raced home as fast as I could. I turned back once and he was just standing there staring after me. When I got home, I told my boyfriend, but he brushed me off. I don’t know who or what this guy was, but I’ve never forgotten it and neither will you if you run into them.

I have been trying to learn all I can about these people. It seems strange to me that they are called Black-Eyed Kids when so many of the incidents concern Black-Eyed Adults.

Another Tale of Black Eyed Kids

Filed under: Paranormal — Frank Fiore @ 7:26 AM

Another tale has been submitted about an incident with the Black Eyed Kids. If you’ve had an experience like this… we want to hear from you. Government Investigators need to get on this !

I have been interested in the paranormal for a few years, and read the stories on your site almost every day. I have been thinking about something that happened to me a couple of years ago. I was in college, and had just left a movie theater with my boyfriend.

As we were leaving, I saw a car and I looked into the window, and no one was in it, or maybe the windows were tinted so I couldn’t see anything, but I stared at it for a while not knowing why. Then my boyfriend realized he needed gas pulled over into a gas station. As he filled up and went into the station to pay for the gas I noticed that the car I’d seen before had now pulled into the gas station and was pulled up against our car.

The window was rolling down and soon I could see a man, who looked to be a teenager, with long hair. I instantly thought he was just another kid getting gas. A coincidence. But when he turned to look at me I could see that his eyes were completely black.

My first reaction was utter fear. I didn’t feel like I was being looked at by just a kid. I just had a sensation. I turned away, too scared to look at him. Then I managed one more glance and he hadn’t moved. He was still so close to his car window and had those eyes on me. I’ll always remember those eyes.

When my boyfriend arrived, I told him about the guy. We both turned to look at the guy and he hadn’t moved. He was in that same position. I noticed I wasn’t the only one who couldn’t keep looking at him. My boyfriend got freaked out, too. We both had the same sensation: he’s not human. I have since moved to another state, for work purposes, but I remember that incident very well.
