Loren is founder and director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine. The episode will also include a forthright discussion of the chatter surrounding the recent revelation of a secret Pentagon UFO research project.

Curtis Collins' Blog: Blue Blurry Lines

After The Paracast -- Available exclusively to Paracast+ subscribers on December 31: Featuring Gene and Chris along with UFO researcher and blogger Curtis Collins. The session begins as Gene mentions his other radio show, The Tech Night Owl LIVE, which featured a nationally known cybersecurity expert, and how all or most of us have probably already been hacked. Chris cites the Jerry Bruckheimer movie, “Enemy of the State,” which starred Will Smith and Gene Hackman, as a potential real-life example of how easily we can be observed and followed around. Following up on the ongoing reports about that “secret” Pentagon UFO study, Chris brings up some intriguing possibilities on how the $22 million, an unknown portion of which evidently outsourced to billionaire Robert Bigelow to conduct UFO investigations, might have been spent. What about the unanswered questions about the study? Chris continues to criticize journalist Leslie Kean and her involvement in the matter. What about the “other shoe” that he expects drop? What is Bigelow’s end game? What about the connection to the “To The Stars” project headed up by rocker Tom Delonge?

What About a False Flag UFO Invasion?
By Gene Steinberg

Those of you who are hoping and dreaming for UFO disclosure mostly assume that our visitors do not wish us ill. Instead, they either don’t care, or are concerned about our indifference to the state of the environment and our penchant for tribal conflicts. They hope to enlighten us, somehow.

True, there are a number of people who claim to be in touch with the “Space Brothers” and talk about their alleged good intentions, but nothing ever changes. Or maybe it just changes for the worse.

But others believe that ET isn’t so friendly towards us. A significant part of controversial abduction researcher Dr. David Jacobs’ theory about human/alien hybrids is that they plan a silent takeover. As these hybrids move into positions of power over the years, decades or centuries, one day we will all awaken and find ourselves under the control of evil extraterrestrials.

It’ll all be done without declaring war, without firing a shot.

In all this, you wonder whether the governments of Earth have any guilty knowledge of what’s really going on. As I read over the discussions about that alleged “secret” Pentagon UFO research project, Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, it seems to exist in a vacuum. It is as if it was the very first time the U.S. government actually did anything to investigate UFOs, and even then it was outsourced to billionaire Robert Bigelow.

What about Project Blue Book? What about over 70 years of sightings that our government cannot possibly be in the dark about?

What indeed?

So is the current focus on UFOs all part of an effort at gradual disclosure? After years of denials that they represent a threat to our national security, the subject seems to almost be taken seriously nowadays.

But there’s more, growing evidence of extrasolar planets orbiting relatively nearby star systems. Some of those worlds appear to be rocky and Earth-like in nature, and thus may have the potential of supporting lifeforms of one form or another.

With potentially billions of such worlds around the galaxy, it seems only logical that a number of those lifeforms have evolved to the point where they have developed advanced civilizations capable of star travel. Maybe they are visiting Earth.

It all appears to make so much sense.

So are those discoveries, and the news about the Pentagon UFO study, all connected somehow? Or was the revelation of the latter largely connected to the recent retirement of its head, Luis Elizondo, and the fact that he joined up with rocker Tom DeLonge’s To The Stars project?

Is there any ulterior motive involved?

So what about the UFOs and their intentions towards us?

Over the years, sci-fi films have depicted the arrival of aliens in various ways. In the classic flying saucer film, “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” from 1951, the visitor, Klaatu, was here to warn us of the dangers of our warlike behavior. He cautioned Earth scientists that, if we didn’t straighten up, they would take matters into their own hands and destroy us in the interests of galactic piece.

Even though this film was highly influential in some of the early contactee claims, that carrot/stick approach was largely ignored. It didn’t fit with the message of benevolent extraterrestrials.

The two versions of “War of the Worlds” and “Independence Day” (and its sequel) were typical of “aliens on the loose” movies, in which ET was here to destroy us. And don’t forget “Earth Versus the Flying Saucers” and its fantastic stop-motion special effects.

But let’s take the alien visitor concept a little further to the ultimate conspiracy theory. And, gentle reader, I am going way out on the limb here, so I’ll just say that this is just a thought piece. I do not take it seriously, or at least I hope there’s nothing to be worried about.

In 1996, there was a barely successful action film, “The Long Kiss Goodnight,” that was largely meant as a star vehicle for Geena Davis. Directed by her husband at the time, Renny Harlin, it depicted Davis as a CIA assassin who loses her memory and spends a big portion of the film attempting to figure out who she really is.

Once her memory returned, she had to confront a CIA gone rogue. Concerned about lower budgets for the agency, its leaders hatched a scheme to fake a terrorist or false flag act. It involved the detonation of a chemical bomb, and, of course, our heroine managed to thwart the plot just in time.

False flag.

Now conspiracy theorists have long talked about possible false flag military actions as schemes to enrich the military-industrial complex. Some of it even sounds credible when you consider what Republican President Dwight Eisenhower, a former five-star General and World War II hero, said before leaving office in 1961. He leveled a warning that Americans should keep watchful eyes on the military establishment.

Was he right?

What about that infamous false flag, the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964, which was used as the basis for expanding America’s participation in the Vietnam War?

What would an out-of-control military-industrial complex do in the 21st century to bloat Pentagon budgets and assume greater control over our society? Certainly instigating a nuclear conflict would be the wrong way to go, since those who would benefit the most probably wouldn’t survive to enjoy the fruits of their labors?

In the spirit of that Geena Davis movie, what about staging a fake UFO invasion? What about manufacturing a few attacks around the world that appeared to demonstrate, with CGI trickery and some advanced weaponry, that we were under attack by extraterrestrials?

Would the gradual disclosure of the existence of ET, and its possible presence on Earth, form the basis for staging a faux attack of this sort?

Even the hint of an alien threat would be enough to swell military budgets worldwide. It would also give authoritarian government leaders, and their military cohorts the ability to clamp down on the rights of citizens, to assume greater control over our affairs.


While I do not necessarily accept the claims of possible false flag or conspiratorial acts involving the 9/11 attack, don’t forget how quickly Congress passed the Patriot Act. Don’t forget how it places limits on our freedoms in exchange for greater protection against terrorists.

Imagine what they could do if the threat came, not from gangs of terrorists, but from alien invaders?

Maybe it’s just stuff for a sci-fi film or TV series. If done properly, it might be a smash hit! Surely nobody in authority would ever consider such an outlandish act.

As I said, this is just a thought piece. Please don’t take it seriously.
