About Richard Dolan

Richard Dolan

Around 1994, the UFO problem began to interest me. I had always possessed an average level of interest in the subject. I owned exactly one book on it, and caught an occasional documentary on television. In other words, I knew nothing of value whatsoever about the problem of UFOs, very much like most people.

Dr. Steven Greer Disclosure Project Talk - Sept 2001, Portland, Oregon

Dr. Steven Greer, Director, Disclosure Project - Sept 2001, Portland, Oregon

I often say, unless we change directions, we're likely to end up where we're going. For years we've been talking about some of the fundamental structural problems in our society. One of the fundamental problems is the issue we're dealing with tonight. I will connect the dots for you of why this issue is relevant to the events of yesterday. I'll do it as delicately as I can.  R

Earthbound Hypothesis and the New Breed of Ufologist

Shane Hill, 7-21-2000

This article is part off a small series dealing with the suspected origins of UFO's. There are three main theories the EBH or Earth Bound Theorem,. The OWH or Off World Theorem which proposes that UFO's are from outer space. Finally the Mystic or occult theory which can be divided into two distinct areas of belief or opinion, the occult being that UFO's are from other realms.  R

Everywhere, by Stealth

Richard M. Dolan

Every day, spectacular events occur in the skies, in space, in the oceans, and on the ground. Astonished witnesses around the world see them. For many, the shock of something so extraordinary, so inexplicable, is a consciousness-shattering experience, never forgotten. Yet few people tell anyone what they saw, save perhaps a close friend or family member.

John Podesta : Clinton’s X-Files Man

Grant Cameron, Presidential UFO

The difference between the average man’s 50th birthday party, and Podesta’s, is that Bill and Hillary Clinton hosted Podesta’s party. The theme of the party was extraterrestrials, or more accurately "The X-Files" a TV fictional drama about the government conspiracy to cover up the existence of extraterrestrial life. The reason for the X-Files theme was that John Podesta was a man openly obsessed with the show. Reporters referred to Podesta as "the unofficial leader of the X-files Club in the West Wing of the White House."

Mind-Body Problem

Greg Sandow

But amusing as all this is -- I could tell crazy UFO tales all day long -- it's not the crazy stories that matter. It's the sane ones. To understand the UFO phenomenon, you need to hear firsthand accounts, from reasonable people who aren't looking for publicity, like the woman in her twenties and the older married couple, who -- in separate incidents -- told me they saw something really huge pass overhead in silence, flying low, at treetop height, some years ago in the Hudson Valley (an area with many reports of such sightings).

Navy retiree says he also saw spaceship 28 years ago

Natalie Chambers, The Associated Press, October 21, 2001

When Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker told the world in 1973 they were abducted by aliens while fishing on the Pascagoula River, few people believed them. Now after 28 years, it appears they weren't alone in their experience on that Oct. 11 night.  R

Reasons to disclose

Stephen Bassett, August 17, 2000

In a June 14 Alien Zoo column the question was asked, “What does the ‘politics of UFOs’ mean?” The answer: making the case to the general public why their personal vital interests and their nation’s vital interests are served by a comprehensive and truthful disclosure of the facts known to their government relating to the extraterrestrial presence. Events intervened delaying a follow-up column making that case, until now.

Review of Albert A. Harrison's After Contact: The Human Response to Extraterrestrial Life

John Alexander, Ph.D., NIDS (National Institute for Discovery Science), Las Vegas, Nevada

In pragmatic detail, Harrison examines the human consequences of contact with such an intelligent extraterrestrial entity. Except for fictional accounts, no one previously has explored as comprehensively the many ramifications such contact would pose for those of us who live in what we believe to be technologically advanced societies. Just what would happen if we learned that we were not at the top of the evolutionary pyramid?  R

Review of Bruce Maccabee's UFO FBI Connection: The Secret History of the Government's Cover-Up

John Alexander, Ph.D., NIDS (National Institute for Discovery Science), Las Vegas, Nevada

To those involved in the UFO field Bruce Maccabee is well known as a meticulous researcher who has applied his skills as an optical physicist to many photographs of unexplained phenomena. He is also known for his strong background in the history of the field. The UFO FBI Connection will add another important piece for those attempting to make sense of the often discombobulated evidence of this complex puzzle.  R

Review of Peter Sturrock's 'The UFO Enigma'

John Alexander, Ph.D., NIDS (National Institute for Discovery Science), Las Vegas, Nevada

In late September 1997 a multidisciplinary group of scientists convened at the picturesque Pocantico Conference Center near Tarrytown, New York to attempt to reevaluate the evidence pertaining to UFOs. Financially supported by Laurance Rockefeller, it was the author, Peter Sturrock, who brought the two disparate groups of scientists together.  R

Someone's Watching Over Us

Maj. Donald E. Keyhoe, USMC (Ret.), The TRUE Report on Flying Saucers, 1967

Since January 1950, when TRUE published my first article on UFO's (see page 6), there has been a tremendous change in the public attitude toward Unidentified Flying Objects. Before, the "flying saucers" were ridiculed by most Americans. Only a small number knew the dramatic evidence - confirmed reports by veteran pilots and other competent witnesses. Even fewer knew of the Air Force Top Secret Estimate of the Situation - that the Flying Saucers - officially Unidentified Flying Objects - were interplanetary vehicles engaged in a long observation of the earth.

Stan Friedman on UFOs & Roswell

Glenn Danforth, GatorBytes magazine

Nuclear Physicist Stanton Friedman is, arguably, the world's most respected and well-known UFO researcher. Friedman believes two alien spaceships crashed in New Mexico in 1947. He offers what many people feel is proof the U.S. Government has conducted a continuing cover-up of the truth behind what newspaper headlines at the time called the crash of a flying saucer (now known as the Roswell incident).  R

Steven Greer and the Disclosure Project

Richard M. Dolan, October/November 2001 issue of UFO Magazine

The arrival of Dr. Steven Greer in the world of ufology signifies a marriage of sorts between two antipodes of thought. On the one hand, Greer has raised the banner – trampled and abandoned – that was carried years ago by Donald Keyhoe. This is the fight to end UFO secrecy. Like Keyhoe, Greer has given it an extraordinary effort for more than ten years, focusing on "nuts and bolts" cases, briefing high level government officials, pressing for Congressional hearings, and gathering many people from the military who are willing to put their careers (and worse, some say) on the line to discuss it. This is his Disclosure Initiative, culminating in the press conference of May 9, 2001. For better or worse, it was a historic – that’s right, historic – event in the history of ufology.

Strange Connections

Shane Hill

As with any field of study, ufology should be looked at through the eye of scientific enquiry. Regardless of how those that call themselves regular scientists see it we must see it that way. Had we been taking the right approach since Kenneth Arnold had his sighting then perhaps ufology might not have the stigmata associated with it that it does. Gather enough facts, place them all together ask the right questions then things start to appear, small similarities, patterns, or clues start to creep out from the mountains of data that most of us seem to collect.  R

Synopsis of 'Unconventional Flying Objects': JSE Review

H.E. Puthoff, Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin, TX - Journal of Scientific Exploration

To the degree that the engineering characteristics of UFOs can be estimated by empirical observation, in my opinion the above-referenced, recently-published book by Paul Hill provides the most reliable, concise summary of engineering-type data available. [1] The data were compiled over decades of research by a Chief Scientist-Manager at NASA's Langley Research Center [2] who acted as an informal clearinghouse for UFO-related data.  R

The Brookings Report - NASA Study on Implications of Discovery of ET Life (abridged copy)

The Enterprise Mission

What is presented here is an abridged copy of this crucial NASA study -- dealing only with the section specifically referencing "implications of the discovery of extraterrestrial life." The full study -- almost 300 pages, covering the full range of NASA's projected space program for the early 1960's, complete with over 400 citations of additional documents, further studies, research reports and background data on a wide variety of projected NASA interests -- is available from The Enterprise Mission. Welcome, then, to "the Brookings Report" -- which increasingly seems to have played a crucial role in determining official NASA policy (if not that of other branches of the Federal government) on the controversial subject of "solar system artifacts" ... for more than thirty years.

The Covert Organization Responsible for the UFO/ET Issue: PI-4O

Steven Greer, M.D., Director CSETI, 1996

PI-40 is a quasi-governmental, USAPS related, qu`asi-private entity operating internationally/transnationally. The majority of operations are centered in private industrial 'work for others' contract projects related to the understanding and application of advanced extraterrestrial technologies. Related compartmentalized units, which are also USAPS, are involved in disinformation, public deception, active disinformation, so-called abductions and mutilations, reconnaissance and UFO tracking, space-based weapons systems, and specialized liaison groups (for example to media, political leaders, the scientific community, the corporate world etc). Think of this entity as a hybrid between government USAPS and private industry.  R

The Government and UFO's: Protocol for Truth

Dan Smith

How well has the government responded to the popular belief that it is concealing evidence of ufo's? Here is what seems to be the standard conservative view: Since there is no basis for the popular belief to begin with, any attempted response on the part of the government is only likely to stir that pot and thus be counter-productive. The opposing view is that by inadequately responding, the government is contributing to the perception of a cover-up.

The Lost Opportunity: 1966 in Retrospect

Richard M. Dolan

As we look back at 1960s ufology standing at the city gates, we might ask ourselves: was there ever a true chance for success? The military and intelligence "handlers" of the UFO problem had resources and capabilities far beyond that of NICAP or any civilian researcher. Fifty years of ufology have shown time and again how civilians have underestimated the resources and resolve of the military-intelligence community to manage this problem. If we today cannot be confident that even the president is fully informed of UFO reality (who can say how much he really knows?), is it realistic to think that private organizations in the 1960s could have done any better? And what about today?

The Paradigm Clock

Stephen Bassett, July 17, 2000

On April 30, 1998, the Paradigm Research Group published to the World Wide Web the “Paradigm Clock.” It includes a chronicle of events that have moved the clock. When the governments of the world, most likely but not necessarily led by the United States, formally disclose to their citizens the presence of extraterrestrial beings, the Paradigm Clock will strike midnight.

'The UFO Evidence' by Richard Hall - Introduction

Richard Hall

Over thirty years ago I compiled this documentary report (The UFO Evidence - 1964) for the leading UFO investigation group, the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) in Washington, D.C. Few people at that time were aware of the scope and consistency of UFO reports by credible witnesses such as scientists, professional pilots, police officers, and even U.S. Air Force personnel. The Air Force was officially charged with conducting a UFO investigation, but maintained that nothing of any importance was being observed.

The UFO Phenomenon

Mark Cashman, The Temporal Doorway

If the only strange things seen in the sky were a few oddly moving lights, or some specks glinting in the sun, there would be no UFO problem. But there have been many observations of these objects at close range by groups of credible witnesses. In addition, physical traces of various kinds have been left behind, and witnesses have experienced physical and medical effects, including lasting injury.

The Zeta Reticuli Star System and ETs

Robert M. Collins and William Moore, Focus Magazine, 1991

Evidence gleaned from both the Betty and Barney Hill abduction case and from intelligence sources has suggested that the home of at least one group of supposed alien 'visitors" to Earth may well be the Zeta Reticuli system, a close pair of companion stars (two stars traveling together in the same direction at the same speed in a wide-binary system) is located some 39.4 to 39.5 light-years distant.  R

UFO Disclosure Crusader Dr. Steven Greer Challenges Media Establishment on Its Home Turf

Len Kasten, writer for Atlantis Rising Magazine

The momentum for full disclosure of the truth from the government about the UFO phenomenon seems to fluctuate almost like the stock market. It goes through periods of intense enthusiasm usually initiated by one or more dedicated individuals or groups, followed by times of relative discouragement and disinterest after it has become abundantly clear that a solid stone wall has been encountered, and it is an exercise in futility.  R

UFOs Continue To Visit Nuclear Energy Sites

George D. Fawcett, 3/3/02

UFOs have been seen and recorded near various atomic energy locations in this country and overseas. Such incidents at the Savannah River, Hanford, Los Alamos, Oak Ridge, McGuire, Cherokee and Indian Point nuclear and atomic plants are of continued vital interest and concern to scientific, military, civilian and governmental observers everywhere. These UFo encounters raise such serious questions as: Are UFOs monitoring our atomic and nuclear energy sites and if so, why? Let's examine some of these often reported events.  R

UFOs: Ignorance Is Bliss

Paul Nahay, June 1, 1999

"I don't believe in UFOs or aliens." So expounded a guest at a recent social gathering I attended. It seems they felt obliged to state this, even though not one word had been spoken on the subject throughout hours of polite Memorial Day weekend conversation. The comment was clearly proffered for my benefit, since this person knew that I am a student of the phenomenon, and an activist in working towards open public disclosure of our government's considerable, unconstitutional, and easily documentable involvement with it. The comment, and the completely unprovoked context in which it was stated, solidified for me the amazing degree to which ignorance is worn as a shield of pride by people in our culture.

What does "The Politics of UFOs" mean?

Stephen Bassett, August 16, 2000

It is a strange phrase - other worldly, ambiguous. It’s also a standing joke which goes like this: the lobbyist/activist is lurking at some soirée or another in Georgetown or Bethesda or the Capitol. Amiable chatting is taking place, harmless banter, until that magic moment occurs when the unsuspecting attendee asks innocently, “Now what is it that you do?”

What is UFOlogy?

Dennis Stacy, Former Editor, MUFON UFO Journal

At any rate, UFO has now entered into common usage and appears in most dictionaries, along with ufology, the study of UFOs, and ufologist, one who studies UFOs. In many ways, the term is a "loaded" one in that it implies classification or designation prior to a proper analysis or thorough investigation.  R

Who's Afraid of UFOs?

Greg Sandow

I'm telling this story to illustrate a phenomenon I'm tempted to call UFO denial. I'm a UFO believer; push me up against a wall, and I'll say I think the damn things are real. But I didn't want to believe those stains. I found myself thinking, "Yo, give me a break. Alien stains -- who does Jacobs think he's kidding?" Show me alleged tangible evidence, in other words, and I run away from my belief.

Would ET Vote? The Likelihood of Extraterrestrial Democracy

Douglas Vakoch, SPACE.com, 8/15/02

You Don't Have To 'Believe' In UFOs Any Longer

James Neff, webmaster, Rense.com

Whenever I hear the question "do you believe in UFOs?" in coversation I become immensely frustrated. To most of those who have devoted even a reasonable portion of time to acquiring an understanding of the phenomenon, the term "belief" simply doesn't, and should never, apply. To use this expression shoves the UFO over into the category of religion or even fantasy, and nothing could be more inaccurate or counter-productive. UFOlogy is a scientific pursuit like any other.  R

NASA's Dirty Little Secret: Remarkable UFOs Captured On NASA Open Broadcasts


The following video footage submitted by Oren Swearingen comes from NASA's public satellite broadcasts. NASA cannot possibly black out everything, and Oren has certainly found this to be true.

What Kind of Science Is The Study Of Unidentified Flying Objects?

Mark Cashman, The Temporal Doorway

One of the complaints frequently raised by those who are skeptical of the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) as an objective physical phenomenon is the nature of UFO data and the method by which UFOs are investigated. These complaints are based on a specific view of science and its data which is not necessarily appropriate to phenomena like UFOs. This is not to suggest, in any way, that UFOs are not amenable to scientific study. It simply means that the methods which work in one field of science are not necessarily appropriate to another.  R
