Contact in the Desert UFO Conference 2014 (Part 3/3)

Modern History/Current Events

Continued from Contact in the Desert Conference 2014, Part 2



Dr. Michael Salla founded the Exopolitics Institute in 2005.  “Exopolitics,” as defined on his website, is “the study of the key individuals, political institutions, and processes associated with extraterrestrial life.” Originally a scholar of international politics who specialized in ethnic conflicts in Kosovo, East Timor, and Sri Lanka, Dr. Salla devoted his research to exopolitics after being convinced of the reality of extraterrestrial life in 2001.

Dr. Salla spoke about the material in his most recent book, Kennedy’s Last Stand: Eisenhower, UFOs, MJ-12 & JFK’s Assassination (extensive book review here). In the lecture, he made a cogent case for a link between John F. Kennedy’s assassination and the UFO/extraterrestrial contact phenomenon.

Here is a quick summary of his lecture:

Dr. Salla made the point that JFK knew since 1945 (way before his presidency) about flying saucer technology and that the Nazi Germans possessed this technology during World War II.  As revealed in JFK’s private diary, which was kept by JFK when he was a 28-year-old reporter in Europe during the summer of 1945 (published as the book Prelude to Leadership), JFK was present at the Potsdam Meeting in Germany over July/August of 1945. He attended as a guest of James Forrestal, who was the Secretary of Navy during WWII (and eventually one of the founders of MJ-12). The Potsdam meeting, which was held to decide how to administer punishment to the defeated Nazi Germany, was the birthplace of Operation Paperclip (Operation Paperclip was the program in which over 1,500 German scientists, technicians, and engineers from Nazi Germany and other foreign countries were brought to the United States after World War II for employment of their technological knowledge). So Kennedy had the opportunity to witness the discussion and evidences of the technological secrets held by Germany during WWII, which included flying saucers.

In 1947, James Forrestal became one of the founders of Majestic-12 (MJ-12), a secret committee formed to investigate the many “flying saucer” sightings and the technology behind them.  He also became the first U.S. Secretary of Defense that year.

Forrestal quickly became at odds with the rest of MJ-12. MJ-12 wanted exclusive rights to the UFO information and to keep the information secret, while Forrestal believed that the best minds needed this information to deal with the phenomenon effectively. Eventually, in 1949, Forrestal was removed from office, and two months later, “committed suicide” [by falling from the 16th floor of the psychiatric clinic where he was confined].

When JFK became the president of the United States in January 1961, he of course knew about UFOs. When he didn’t get a briefing about UFOs after taking office, he went through the backdoor to get more information.

In 1963, Kennedy appealed to the Soviet Union for a joint venture in space. He launched a policy initiative in which he proposed a joint U.S.-Soviet lunar expedition, which was accepted by the Soviet premiere Nikita Krushev, especially in light of a recent cosmonaut rocket failure. Thus human space venture was never supposed to have been a race, but a collaboration into space.

Subsequently, JFK sent a memo directing the CIA to cooperate with the Soviet Union and share files that need to be shared. The CIA, through MJ-12, had complete monopoly over the UFO files. However, under the MJ-12 directives, then held by CIA director Allen Dulles, government agencies were to be told nothing about UFOs, and should be lied to. In particular, the 6th MJ-12 directive regarding Project Environment specified that “When conditions become non-conducive for growth in our environment and Washington cannot be influenced any further, the weather is lacking any precipitation … it should be wet,”  the term “wet” being codeword for “kill.”

Kennedy was assassinated shortly afterward, on November 22, 1963. According to Dr. Salla, Lyndon Johnson, who began working with MJ-12 in 1949 and who had been sent to visit (threaten) Forrestal during his confinement before his death, played a key role in the assassination of JFK.

Forrestal, Eisenhower, and Kennedy all opposed the military-industrial complex, and did not believe that information as huge as the presence of intelligent extraterrestrial life and advanced extraterrestrial technology should be monopolized by very few men.


From the introduction for The Citizens’ Hearing for Disclosure:

“Donald R. Schmitt is the former co-director of the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS), where he served as the director of special investigations for 10 years. Before that, he worked as a special investigator for the late Dr. J. Allen Hynek…”

Schmitt’s mentor Dr. Hynek was scientific advisor to Project Blue Book (a project conducted by the U.S. Air Force to study UFOs, between 1952 and 1969).

What really stood out in my mind from Schmitt’s talk was Schmitt’s admission that when he first decided to investigate the Roswell incident approximately 25 years ago, he was a complete skeptic. He just could not imagine that the government could keep under wraps something of such epic proportions as the truth of the Roswell incident (recovered extraterrestrial bodies, craft, and technology). Arriving in Roswell, he honestly believed that investigation would be wrapped up in a single weekend.

I think many people could relate to this incredulity– how could the government possibly keep secret something so big? There were a craft, bodies, and lots of  witnesses!

As Schmitt started talking to the first witnesses, he became convinced of the validity of what happened. Multiple witnesses described the same technologies– weightless, paper-thin material that couldn’t be bent, dented, scratched, or cut, and materials that you could crumble and crease in your hand, but once released, would flow through the fingers like water. Multiple witnesses described the same events, consistently, repeatedly, and even in their death beds. And as he himself directly experienced the blockages– sometimes quite hostile– during his information quest, he realized that there actually was a systemized suppression of information.

During the lecture, Schmitt spoke about the material in his most recent book, Inside the Real Area 51: The Secret History of Wright-Patterson. The title of his talk was “Where Did the Roswell Wreckage and Bodies Go?”

The first atomic bomb test was code-named Trinity, and took place in southern New Mexico on July 16, 1945, as the result of the Manhattan Project.  The test site, named the White Sands Proving Ground, was built in the desert about 35 miles southeast of Socorro, New Mexico, about a 2-hour drive west from Roswell. Around the time of first atomic bomb test, there were more UFO sightings in New Mexico than anywhere else in the world.

The Roswell incident happened over the 4th of July weekend in 1947. According to Schmitt, two bodies were recovered near Roswell, and 40 miles north of Roswell, there were an impact crater, three bodies, and one being still walking around.

Many people think that the wreckage remains and bodies are stored in Area 51 in Nevada, but Area 51 didn’t exist in the 40s. He said that the wreckages and bodies from the Roswell crashes are currently stored in Hanger 18 of Wright-Patterson Field in Dayton, Ohio. The bodies were first moved to hangar 23, which was connected to hangar 18 through an underground tunnel. Hangar 23 is now filled with concrete.

Yvonne Smith

According to the Contact in the Desert conference brochure, Smith began researching the UFO phenomenon in the late 1980s. After two years of studies and 1000 hours of internship at the California Hypnosis Motivation Institute, she received her hypnotherapy certification in 1990. Specializing in cases of post-traumatic stress disorder, she uses her hypnotherapy skills to help UFO experiencers work through the emotional trauma from their encounter.

Smith founded Close Encounters Resource Organization (CERO) as a monthly support group for UFO abductees in 1992. More recently, she founded CERO-International to educate the public with open-to-the-public events about the close encounter/abduction phenomena.

In her lecture, Smith talked about her latest book, Coronado: The President, The Secret Service and Alien Abductions.

The book is about a number of UFO abductions that took place simultaneously on Coronado Island off San Diego, CA, in March of 1994, to several members of Smith’s CERO group (Smith’s Coast to Coast interview here). These CERO members were attending the TRIAD UFO Conference being held on Coronado Island. Interestingly, President Bill Clinton happened to be on Coronado Island on the same weekend as this conference, with his secret service entourage. Several CERO members believed that something strange had happened to them during their weekend at the conference. Through physical evidence and hypnotic regression, Smith was able to piece together various pieces of evidence that indicated alien abductions.

One of the attendees remembered seeing a bright light, and found blood on his pillow the next morning, coming from his ear. Another of the attendees found a scoop mark on her shin, and later an implant was found and removed from the site by a doctor. A number of the attendees recalled being taken to a huge craft. Some of the attendees remembered seeing each other on the craft, on an examination table or carrying out some kind of work.

In attendance during Smith’s lecture at the Contact in the Desert conference was a woman who was a repeat abductee. It seemed that she was being used to perform various functions on the craft, including calming and soothing the frightened new abductees, as well as having some medical procedures done on her. Perhaps it was because of the therapy work that she had done with Smith over many years, but she seemed generally accepting of her repeat abduction experiences. She mentioned moments of feeling guilt. She also said that because the abductors knew of her interest in technology, she would be “rewarded” with teachings about their technology after her procedures. She seemed fully functional and remarkably well-adjusted to what I would consider an extremely unusual and potentially-traumatizing life.



James Gilliland is a minister, spiritual counselor, energetic healer, internationally known lecturer, and a best selling author. He is also the founder of the ECETI (Enlightend Contact with Extraterrestrial Intelligence) organization. I know of him as the owner of ECETI ranch in Trout Lake, Washington, where thousands of people have witnessed UFOs and extra-normal phenomena over the past ten years. The witnesses include all kinds of scientists, engineers, TV stations, local police, professional photographers, and investigators from around the world.

From his website:  “There are large volumes of photos and literally hours of footage of ships hovering, taking off at break neck speeds, making right angle turns, throwing off tremendous energies expanding to several times their original size and responding to the people below showing they are under definite intelligent control.”

The fact is that UFOs make regular appearances at the ECETI ranch, and the sightings are not accidental. Gilliland is routinely able to call forth UFOs to his ranch. It is the same with Dr. Steven Greer– he can routinely call forth UFOs. How do they do it? They both use protocols that involve the raising of one’s spiritual vibration.

From Gilliland’s website: “There are protocols for contact. One must have a high degree of honesty, integrity, and be dedicated to the awakening and healing of Humanity and the Earth. They must also be committed to their own awakening and healing process. When one has met these protocols they will most likely be contacted and become ambassadors of truth.”

I really enjoyed and resonated with the primary message in Gilliland’s talk that the way to meet the higher-vibrating ETs (of course, lower vibrating ones exist as well) is to raise our own vibrations. We need to match their vibrational level to be able to see them, to have them enter our reality.

The spiritual aspect is really the critical requirement for open contact, one which perhaps not enough people appreciate or even associate with contact. Before we can have world-wide open contact with the higher-vibrating intelligent extraterrestrial beings, we need to have a high enough vibration as a collective. It means less fear, and more dedication to the awakening and healing of oneself, Humanity, and Earth.

According to Gilliland, contact is already happening. I believe it.
