MUFON LA Presents Greg Bishop

Venue: St. Innocent Orthodox Church (Inside Herman's Hall), 5657 Lindley Ave. Tarzana, CA 91356

Speaker: Greg Bishop

Topic: PROJECT BETA: How the U.S. Government Created An Alien Invasion

In the early 1980s, electrical physicist Paul Bennewitz thought he
had stumbled onto evidence of an alien invasion. Unbeknownst to him, he
had been fed disinformation by the Air Force Office of Special
Investigations in a counterintelligence operation. The plan backfired,
however, because the incident led to renewed calls for disclosure of
government UFO secrecy. In the process, Bennewitz had actually stumbled
onto strange lights and signals that were part of the vast black budget
projects that were going on at Kirtland-projects sponsored by the Air
Force, Defense Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Agency.
The Bennewitz episode would provide the government cover-story for those wild UFO conspiracy tales for the next 20 years or more, and
serve as a warning to researchers not to confuse the authority of the
messenger with the truth of the message.

Thanks to the efforts of author/researcher Greg Bishop, the truth
behind the Bennewitz story and its implications to current ufology is
finally being revealed. Bishop's lecture will feature personal notes,
correspondence, and some of the verified disinformation that was fed to
Bennewitz that lead to his eventual breakdown and institutionalization.
His presentation will also include an in-depth analysis of the
disinformation campaign by an agent specifically assigned to draw
Bennewitz into an ever-increasing web of paranoia and intrigue, much of
which still runs through the UFO rumor mill today. Other new
information and accounts will deal with the famous Cash-Landrum close
encounter case and its relationship to the Bennewitz case.

Greg Bishop is the author of the book Project Beta: The Story of
Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO
Myth. Greg says he has been fascinated with the no-man's land between
the extremes of wide-eyed belief and closed-minded debunkery ever since
1991, when he co-founded a magazine called The Excluded Middle, a
journal of UFOs, conspiracy research, psychedelia and new science (now
online at ). Wake Up Down There!, a collection
of articles from the magazine, was published in 2000. His third and
newest book, Weird California, was published by Sterling Publishers and
Barnes & Noble in March of 2006. Greg's radio show, Radio
Misterioso, can be heard on Sundays from 8-10 PM PST at Interviews with fringe-topic researchers and weird
music are the usual fare.

Time: 8:00pm

Admission: $9.00 for members, $15.00 for non-members


Blue Rose Report #3 now online

BLUE ROSE REPORT #3 – Archive Now Online
Last night’s show was unscripted and very FUN! Friend and coconspirator Craig York called in and we began discussing Cryptozoology and anomalous animal behaviors in the news. We discussed the increase in public awareness of cryptozoology and the media’s playing up of animal news stories. We careened across continents discussing Central Texas cougar sightings, giant insect nests, Indian elephant rampages and rice beer (1998/99 and 2005/06), psychotic American raccoon gangs, manic monkeys, Texas Bigfoot & Ghost-Lights and much more!

Mack White called in and added to the discussion, starting the rampaging elephants thread and speaking of North Texas cougar sightings. Eventually my friend Jimmy called to chime in about Central Texas cougar sightings and by the end of the show we finally had our first “unknown” caller, Carlos, in the last five minutes of the show, inquiring about the conjunction of Bigfoot and UFO reports which we had briefly touched upon earlier. We mentioned local researchers such as Rob Riggs and more well known writers such as Jerome Clark and Loren Coleman who, once upon a time, wrote books connecting these two subjects.
Listen Live to SMiles Lewis
Anyway, take a listen to the online audio archive of the show available HERE (locally) and HERE (at Blog Talk Radio dot com).

Devastating News…

China: Chen Guangcheng is prisoner of conscience
rights activist Chen Guangcheng was today sentenced to four years and
three months in prison. In reaction, Catherine Baber, Deputy Asia
Pacific Director at Amnesty International said:

“We condemn
utterly the sentence imposed on Chen Guangcheng and consider him a
prisoner of conscience. Chen has been imprisoned solely because of his
peaceful defence of human rights and he should be released

“The charges against Chen were politically
motivated and the trial was grossly unfair from start to finish. Chen's
lawyers were obstructed at every step of the way, from collecting
evidence to representing him in court. By some accounts the trial
lasted only two hours; and the courtroom was filled with official
representatives preventing members of the public and most of Chen's
relatives attending.”

Chen was charged with “damaging public
property and gathering people to block traffic” in June 2006, after he
had been detained incommunicado for three months. He had been
arbitrarily confined to his home since September 2005. Before his
detention Chen had been helping local villagers in their attempt to sue
the local authorities in Linyi City, Shandong province, for
carrying out an illegal policy of forced abortions and sterilizations
which reportedly affected thousands of local women.

You'll hear Guest Adam Gorightly as well as calls from Mack White and Greg Bishop.

We talked about Consciousness, Psychedelics, UFOs and  Contactees like Philip K. Dick, Robert Anton Wilson and John C. Lilly. Gorightly talked about his three books: Shadow Over Santa Susanna, The Prankster and the Conspiracy as well as his most recent tome, The Beast of Adam Gorightly – Collected Rantings '92 to '04.

Gorightly also educated us about another connection for explaining the name of our show … The Blue Rose Report. Seems there is a Contactee saucer cult leader, the Rev. Bob Short who founded The Blue Rose Ministry and ministered for years out at the Giant Rock, Joshua Tree, Landers, California vortex with some of the original 50s / 60s Contactees.
