  • Leah Haley was by far one of the most interesting alien abductees on the scene today. She has a couple of firsts to her credit: She was the first to write a children’s book designed to help kids view their alien abductions as positive, edifying experiences, and she was the first to claim she was inside an alien spacecraft when it was shot down by the U.S. military. Now, however, Haley believes that every last one of her “alien” encounters was actually a military abduction, or MILAB. In March, she told UFO blogger Jack Brewer that none of it was real; it was all a cover for government mind control experimentation. Farewell, Ceto.
  • In related news, Charles Hickson passed away on September 9. Hickson was involved in one of the strangest UFO encounters ever reported, the Pascagoula incident of 1973. He and his 19-year-old fishing buddy, Calvin Parker, were supposedly levitated into a spaceship and examined by eyeless, carrot-nosed aliens.
  • Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his government leaders are proof positive that once you deny the Holocaust (or any major, well-documented historical event, for that matter), you no longer have to live in reality. In June, he declared that Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the Iranian woman sentenced to stoning for adultery in 2006, wasn’t really given a death sentence – that was all a media hoax. An Iranian official had already tried to stifle the worldwide outcry against Ashtiani’s sentence by stating, in contradiction to all previous statements, that Ashtiani was also convicted of murdering her husband (she was actually acquitted). And Youcef Nedarkhani, the Christian minister sentenced to death for blasphemy against Islam? He’s really on trial for rape and extortion, even though the court documents only mention blasphemy.
  • Face discovered in testicular tumour“. Stay classy, Telegraph.
  • Who is the artist known as the Philadelphia Wireman? His or her enigmatic metal sculptures were salvaged from the trash in the early ’80s, and since that time there have been murmurs that they’re a hoax perpetrated by John Ollman of the Fleischer/Ollman Gallery. The Wireman’s pieces are currently on display there.

Martian plesiosaurs, Mossad sharks, and teleporting dolphins. Oh my.

  • Felicity Lowde, convicted in 2007 of harassing 7/7 bombing survivor Rachel North, has now turned her cybertongue against Pagans and Freemasons in Bristol, speculating they may have abducted and ritually murdered Joanne Yeates in a macabre Solstice initiation ceremony. Circumstantial evidence includes the fact that some Bristol Pagans like to meet in pubs near Ms. Yeates‘ workplace.
  • In late 2008, a Washington state man named Andrew Basiago announced he had found numerous anomalous things in photos taken by the Mars Spirit Rover, including humans in blue jumpsuits, statues, a Bigfoot, a “centipede woman”, and huge snakes. Now Basiago says he was teleported to Mars twice in 1980, and on one occasion he and the CIA agent accompanying him were charged by a plesiosaur. I’m sorry to report that some people believe this, and it has led to a crazy kerfuffle between leading members of the exopolitics movement. Basiago is apparently a practicing attorney, and claims to have five degrees from institutions like UCLA. He’s scheduled to speak at a Dolphins & Teleportation Symposium being held in Hawaii this June. Maybe a Martian plesiosaur will show up, too.
  • Kids, this is what happens when you go AWOL to make shitty “documentaries” with your friends.
  • Lest anyone is wondering why Egypt is up the creek, look no further than this: Last December, Mohamed Shousha (Governor of South Sinai) publicly declared that Israel’s Mossad may have dumped a shark into Egyptian waters to harm the tourist industry. With leaders like this, who needs leaders?

Is it just me, or would all these things combined make a great movie? A bloodthirsty shark capable of teleporting itself to the surface of Mars is released into English waters by an intelligence agency, and is thwarted by a coalition of dolphins, Martian plesiosaurs, and drunk Pagans.

bathroom demon at work
  • I have seen some seriously stupid things at World Net Daily over the years (Amero hysteria, anyone?), but this takes the cake: “Family Spooked as ‘Satan’ Possesses New Bathroom“. As with the famous faces of Belmez, a family in Budapest thinks one of their shower tiles has mysteriously formed an image that could be the Devil. Or Max Headroom.
  • I know a lot of people didn’t like the movie Salt, but to my knowledge the blogger at Three Dead Words is the only reviewer to describe it as “more NWO e-Mein Kampf Mind Control Slave Super Spy Stuff”. She is also quite certain that actor Liev Schreiber is an “induced MPD/programmed multiple/MC slave by leave of the U.S. federal gov’t CIA black ops....trauma-bonded to his abuser mother under the directions of some CIA/Jesuit directed MONARCH MC programmer’s demands.” Conspiranoid-to-English translation: Schreiber was brainwashed by his eccentric mother, the U.S. government, and priests (even though he’s Jewish).
  • This just doesn’t seem ethical. How could you be sure the aliens know what they’re getting into?
  • Glenn Beck recommending the work of a racist, anti-Semitic, fascist-loving conspiracy theorist – why does this not surprise? Clearly, he hasn’t hired a fact-checker since his brush with Nazism.
