Ben Emlyn-Jones and Danielle at Bases at the Black Swan

The Bases at the Black Swan was one of the most enjoyable of the many public events the Bases Project has held, see background links below for details of some others. I interviewed Miles Johnston about the event and the upcoming one in Ireland here: http://hpanwo-radio.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/programme-243-podcast-miles-johnston.html. I met up with many old friends and made a few new ones, such as Danielle. She had the most terrible journey to the Black Swan from her home in West Yorkshire. She was stopped by the police over a motoring offence that appeared too conveniently timed to be coincidental. She had her car impounded and would have had it confiscated permanently if it hadn't been for the solidarity and generosity of the Bases Project delegation. I introduced the open-mic experiencers session at the event and she was the first speaker, making her public live debut.
Danielle will shortly be a guest on HPANWO Radio, see the entry in the Links column for upcoming details and she has her own websites here: http://www.huskylight.com/ and: https://www.youtube.com/user/Martingale1510.

Sunday Express on Marcus Allen

For some reason there has been considerable mainstream media coverage of this year's Glastonbury Symposium, see: http://www.glastonburysymposium.co.uk/. I myself went along in 2010 and made one of my favourite HPANWO TV videos, Ben Goes on Tor!, see: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2010/07/ben-goes-on-tor.html. In those days only the specialized press of the UFO/conspiracy/paranormal and the mind/body/spirit communities; and the various overlaps thereof, covered it. Journals such as Nexus, Caduceus, Namaste etc. This year one of the speakers was Marcus Allen, the UK publisher of Nexus magazine. He's a good friend of mine and fellow researcher, specializing in the moon landings, and has been on HPANWO Radio many times, see: http://hpanwo-radio.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/programme-179-podcast-marcus-allen.html. His lecture was reviewed by Jon Austin of the Sunday Express and... ultimate spoiler alert, it is not exactly Pulitzer Prize material. Source: http://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/838136/Moon-landings-hoax-Marcus-Allen-not-possible-Glastonbury-Symposium.

The content is vaguely factual, but includes some aversive elements. The very title is simplistic and misleading: "Secret Space Project- 'NASA had craft to reach moon... but hoaxed Apollo missions instead'." It is intended to make the reader scoff, and hopefully read no further. The true relationship between the secret space programme and NASA's public equivalent is complex, but explicable. Marcus and I delve into it in our interviews and also there is more information in the background links below. The article begins: "A top lunar landings denier." Any description of a person's beliefs that includes the suffix "denier" is a personal slur. It is intended to connect in the reader's mind to "Holocaust denier" and thereby demonize the person. It is a tactic used by people like George Monbiot, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2011/02/death-to-climate-change-deniers.html. "Shocking claim" is just a piece of shallow rhetoric. Why use the adjective "shocking"? "Shocking" is a position on a purely emotional and qualitative gauge. It says nothing about how much or little evidence exists to support or discredit the claim. It is similar to Carl Sagan's cliche "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary explanations." See here for more details: https://youtu.be/Oxfmkn7QygY?t=26m18s. "Mr Allen is the UK publisher of 'alternative news' magazine Nexus." "Alternative news" is put into scare-quotes so that the reader will intuit an implicit pejorative subtext. This is done in a similar way to how the mainstream media use the phrase "fake news". The same goes for the old lines "moon hoax conspiracy theorist" (repeated twice) and "The far-fetched conspiracy theory." If a trick keeps working, why not keep using it? "It is then claimed that specialist scientists aided by Nazi's, who worked for the US in return for immunity from war crimes trials." This refers to Operation Paperclip and it is not a "claim"; it is historical fact. After the destruction of Nazi Germany at the end of World War II, Hitler's scientists were given the choice of working for the victorious allies or going to Nuremburg. The best known of these scientists is Wernher von Braun. Many of these experts were also working in the field of electrogravitics and this would have included the back-engineering of extraterrestrial technology that used it, see background links for details. "Believers even claim that the high-tech craft are secretly flown into space." The word "believers" is another dysphemism; it echoes phrases like "believers in the cult of the Lemonade Fountain" etc. It prevents the readers understanding that people like Marcus have come to this field of study via a careful scientific analysis of the evidence. As always with the mainstream media, it is the comments under the article that are far more interesting than the article itself; and based on those, apart from the usual idiots of course, I'm pleased to say that the propaganda in this screed does not appear to have fooled as many people as the authors and editor would probably like. We're almost at the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo moon missions. NASA know this is going to be a massive informational choke point for them, possibly too massive to prevent the truth exploding out... and I'm going to be squeezing hard on their necks!

The Larry Warren Controversy- Part 20

In the background link above you will see my review of Nick Pope's article "Theft at East Gate" in the latest issue of Outer Limits Magazine. Now Larry has given his own assessment of the publication in a new video with Tino.
See here for the YouTube version: (coming soon)
In the video Larry proposes a new idea for a conference that I do hope will be realized. Obviously I'll be sure to cover it in extensive detail should the event go ahead.

Big Brother House Haunted

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 is underway. This Orwellian TV franchise has been running for twenty years and has been exported to fifty-four countries. The latest instalment of evictions, arguments, communal sleeping and cameras in the toilet stars a number of celebrities; however, and maybe I'm just displaying my alienation from popular culture, I have only heard of one of these people, Derek Acorah, see: http://bigbrother.channel5.com/housemates. Derek Acorah is a self-styled psychic medium who has risen to the heights of stardom via his professed ability to talk to the dead. He became famous as one of the hosts of Most Haunted. David Icke has also had readings with him. Despite this, his psychic ability has been called into question and a few times he has been caught out cheating. He once claimed to channel the spirit of a dead South African prisoner warder called Kreed Kafer. He was actually hot reading disinformation he had been fed. Kreed Kafer never existed and was only invented by some skeptics who wanted to catch Acorah out. The name is an anagram of "Derek faker". Therefore quite a few TV viewers will be rolling their eyes and folding their arms over Acorah's latest scoop. He says that the Big Brother house is haunted by the ghosts of two housemates from previous series. David Gest was a TV actor and the ex-husband of the actress Liza Minnelli. He was in the 2016 Celebrity Big Brother and died a few months later of a stroke. Jade Goody appeared in the 2002 season of Big Brother and went on to become a household name. She returned to the series in Celebrity Big Brother 2007. She died of cervical cancer at the tender age of twenty-seven. Derek Acorah says he has seen the spirits of both former contestants in the house as well as orbs and mist. Source: http://metro.co.uk/2017/08/02/derek-acorah-claims-celebrity-big-brother-house-is-haunted-by-the-ghosts-of-jade-goody-and-david-gest-6825266/.

Just because a psychic medium carries out fraud does not necessarily follow that they are not a real medium, but it does totally ruin their credibility. Some genuine mediums will fake the effects when they're having trouble connecting to spirit. I advise never to be tempted into that. It is better to be honest with the audience, tell them the spirits are simply not cooperating tonight and offer them their money back. One reason Acorah may be blagging again this time is because Jade Goody might not be dead. Like Jo Cox MP (see background links below), she may have faked her own death and is now living a long way from her previous home under a new identity. This was suggested by Ian R Crane in one of his lectures and there is good reason to suggest this. Firstly, despite being terminally ill she does not look very sick in her photos at the time. She lost her hair, allegedly due to chemotherapy, but did not loose much weight or exhibit any other obvious symptoms. The way her diagnosis was revealed to her was extraordinary. She was a housemate in the Indian version of the show, called Bigg Boss, when she was called to the diary room and given the news on the phone by her doctor in England. She was then allowed to return to the house where she broke down in tears and was consoled by the other housemates, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhVefAit_K8. Under no circumstances would any doctor consult with a patient in that manner, especially when it comes to news that is so terrible. What would have happened is that Jade would be called to the diary room and told by Big Brother that she had to leave the house for medical reasons. She would then be taken to the surgery and told by the doctor in person. In fact it is unlikely that she would even have been allowed to be a contestant while undergoing tests for the disease. This was a test for the cancer itself, not just a positive papilloma smear test. Why would Jade fake her own death? Ian suspects it is to help market "Gardesil", the human papilloma virus vaccine, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fk7ydeFPxs. I'm not sure about this. Jade Goody would be a bad choice for this kind of scam because her personality is not one I would judge as being good for keeping a secret.
