OFFICIAL PORTRAIT OF PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN

CLICK HERE to listen to a clip of RONALD REAGAN's
favorite song, "EL PASO," by Marty Robbins. The song peaked
at #1 in November of 1959.

In a December 4, 1985 speech at Fallston High School, MD, President REAGAN spoke about his 5-hour private discussions with General Secretary GORBACHEV the previous month in November, 1985. He relayed to the class: "How much easier his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from another species from another planet outside in the universe. We'd forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries, and would find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this Earth together."

"Government is NOT the solution to our problem, government IS the
problem." - Ronald Reagan
 
"My life really began when I married my husband." - Nancy Reagan
 
"What I'd really like to do is go down in history as the president who
made Americans believe in themselves again." - Ronald Reagan

THIS RELEASE HAS BEEN APPROVED BY and AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT as part of a continuing public acclimation program.

WHAT: Transcripts of highly classified audio cassette recordings made of 40th U.S. president RONALD REAGAN's briefings with his top level and key advisers on the EXTRATERRESTRIAL subject matter. There are six (6) briefings in the first set; "Project SERPO" POSTING #27a is only the first one (1) of the six (6) transcribed sets.

The REAGAN ET TRANSCRIPTS are located in POSTING #27a, "3 of 7" and "4 of 7." This does NOT include the "BONUS! SERPO POSTING #27" stream.

WHEN: President REAGAN was briefed on many aspects of the EXTRATERRESTRIAL subject matter from March 6-8, 1981 and then again on October 9-12 of the same year.

WHERE: President REAGAN was briefed on both occasions at the presidential retreat at Camp David, MD.

HOW: At President REAGAN's request, these briefings were both tape recorded AND transcribed via the coordination and administration by a "Top Secret Codeword-cleared" CIA administrative assistant named XXXXX XXXXX. The recordings comprise many meetings/briefings in a combination of 60 min and 90 min cassettes for a total of 54 tapes.

Of the 54 tapes, 40 have been completed by DOD-DIA personnel; you are reading the transcripts of one of six (1 of 6) briefings President REAGAN made between Friday-Sunday, March 6-8, 1981.

DOD/DIA personnel were able to gain access to and possession and ownership of these tapes because SOME of the recordings deal with an ALIEN THREAT from a specific HAV [Hostile Alien Race] and therefore fall under the purview, control and jurisdictional authority of the Dept of Defense.

WHY: The reasons to disclose this information now is two-fold:

1) As in the case of the "Project SERPO" disclosures, the 25-year time limit on classified USG projects had expired and could -- after much legal vetting and wrangling between DOD lawyers and those USG employees who WANT it released -- be CONSIDERED for public release and into the public domain.

The "Project SERPO" final report was issued in 1980 + 25 years = 2005 ... Wednesday, Nov 2, 2005 was the first "Project SERPO" release.

The RONALD REAGAN Presidential ET Briefings: 1981 + 25 years = 2006 ... legal issues to be worked out and resolved brings us to late 2007.

2) MANY other countries are disclosing their encounters with extraterrestrials -- especially Canada, the UK (MoD files) and Latin America -- so some amount of pressure has been placed and brought to bear on the normally tight-lipped USG "black world" to be more open about what they/we have in our "TS/Codeword" files.

SUGGESTION: I'm acutely aware that MANY of you will gloss over POSTING #27 which is a lengthy biographical piece I personally researched, compiled and wrote on Ronald Reagan woven together from 10 (ten) different sources in my immense personal library (see bottom of POSTING #27 for bibliography) and which took me
80 hours to edit into the final product you'll read.

I know that you'll all want to "get to the good stuff" first, BUT I would implore you to GO BACK and read the Reagan linear narrative I edited as it provides some GREAT insight into the man, will lead one to believe that given his engaging, natural wit and charm that he used to joke with a great deal of the time that in fact he WOULD HAVE said -- and joked -- the way he did during the highly classified briefings he received on the EXTRATERRESTRIAL SUBJECT MATTER in 1981.

You'll also learn about some little, virtually UNknown facts surrounding the attempted 1981 assassination on his life -- as well as others -- under the section heading, "CONSPIRACY THEORY 2 of 2: POTSHOTS FROM THE BUSHY KNOLL?!"

MODERATOR's IMPORTANT CLOSING NOTE: From the very first SERPO posting, I've been given a very wide, great and sole discretionary latitude in HOW I release the material to the public in terms of presentation, formatting, style and CONTENT.

For THIS release, I was surprisingly provided the names of ALL eight (8) individuals who participated in the classified briefing plus even the name of the CIA briefing transcriber. Five (5) of the presidential briefing participants are still alive -- plus the CIA transcriber -- so I made the "executive"/editorial decision to MASK THOSE NAMES from public view and replace them with "ADVISER #1" - "ADVISER #4."

For the fifth individual, he is referred to only as "The CARETAKER." The CIA transcriber is referred to as just that. GREAT pains, lengths and efforts were undertaken by me to delete their names when they were mentioned by other speakers. If I glossed over and missed one, then so be it though I hope not.

Including President REAGAN, only three (3) individuals are named as they have all passed on to the afterlife.

ISSUE: Though I was NOT asked to do this, in my mind, an obvious problem would definitely arise: These still-living advisers would be hounded, pestered and questioned mercilessly and without end by both real UFO investigators and "armchair" researchers thereby bringing continued DISCLOSURE of these audio recordings to a complete HALT.

The pressure for me to CEASE and DESIST, as well as the special unit within the DOD/DIA who made this information available would be enormous. I am ONLY interested in getting I-N-F-O-R-M-A-T-I-O-N out to the UFO community and public at large, NOT in "outing" the individuals who participated in these PRIVATE briefings ... at least NOT while five of the eight (5 of 8) participants are still very much alive. If I receive directions to proceed otherwise, I certainly will, but until that time, it's MY CALL.

As ANONYMOUS remarked to me: "Victor, the really 'good stuff' is yet to come after the first release!"

Speaking for myself only, I too WANT to see that "really good stuff" and I'll do NOTHING to jeopardize at all.

This will be my FINAL word on THIS matter and I'll entertain NO suggestions, advice or ideas at all about it ... I'll NOT dignify ANY inquiries regarding this particular issue with even so much as a simple reply. I MEAN WHAT I SAY.

In addition to the many LEGAL issues which surrounded, hobbled and held up this release for months on end, two (2) military historians reviewed and signed off on this material as well as an astronomer from Cornell Univ.

It is my high HONOR, distinct PRIVILEGE and great PLEASURE to send this 8-part stream to (in order):

a) UFO Thread List, M-Z (hundreds);

b) UFO Thread List, A-L (hundreds);

c) 24 senior USG officials + 1 MI5 member (active), MI6 (retired), Soviet KGB (retired);

d) small list of personal friends, former students of mine, ex-girlfriends and cyberstalking victims (
12);

e) Bush Admin White House (2)

f) U.S. Secret Service Presidential Protective Service Detail (1);

g) CORNELL UNIV, Space Sciences Division, Astronomy Dept, NASA's Mars Rover Project, USG "black world" contract astronomer (1);

h) retired employee of the NSA who greatly assisted me in not only the proofreading and photo configuration and selection, but advised me and provided valuable input and insight on key aspects of this VERY SPECIAL release.

i) ANONYMOUS/DIA-6 (6) who will forward all eight (8) parts to key members of the USG intel commuinity, both here and abroad.

I hope you are all ENRICHED and EDUCATED beyond belief and your wildest dreams by what you are about to read!

FEEDBACK? E-mail me at my regular e-mail address, NOT this one .... I will NOT respond to ANY e-mails sent here and plan on closing DOWN this address soon. It was solely opened for this particular stream ... no more Wizard ... he's departed for Planet SERPO....

Soviet Union General Secretary MIKHAIL GORBACHEV at a speech on February 16, 1987 in the Grand Kremlin Palace in Moscow: "At our meeting in Geneva, the U.S president said that if the earth faced an invasion by extraterrestrials, the United States and the Soviet Union would join forces to repel such an invasion. I shall not dispute the hypothesis, though I think it's early yet to worry about such an intrusion."

RON & NANCY HORSEBACK RIDING

Click to enlarge


NOT QUITE ALONE - 1982 On every ride, Secret Service agents followed the President and the First Lady, who went by the code names "Rawhide" and "Rainbow."

MAJOR EVENTS THAT OCCURRED DURING REAGAN's TWO (2) PRESIDENTIAL BRIEFINGS ON THE EXTRATERRESTRIAL PRESENCE ON EARTH during March and October, 1981: 

President Reagan was shot and seriously wounded on Monday, March 30, 1981 in Washington, DC. Also seriously wounded were Secret Service Agent Timothy McCarthy [hit in the stomach], DC police officer Thomas Delahanty (struck in the neck] and Press Sec'y James Brady [shot in the left temple]. John W Hinckley, Jr was arrested, found NOT GUILTY by reason of insanity on May 4, 1982, and committed to St Elizabeth's Psychiatric Hospital in Washington, DC. 

The U.S. Senate confirmed on Monday,  September 21, 1981, the appointment of Sandra Day O'Connor as the FIRST female U.S. Supreme Court justice.

CONSPIRACY THEORY 1 of 2: That President Reagan was shot for his insistence that more information be made available to him on the alien presence than what is normally given each new incoming, sitting president [see end for conspiracy theories]. 

REVITALIZATION OF CAPITALISM, DEMAND FOR DEMOCRACY: 1980-1989 

SUMMARY: In the U.S., "The Reagan Years" (1981-88) brought the longest economic boom yet in U.S. history via budget and tax cuts, deregulation,"junk bond" financing, leveraged buyouts and mergers and takeovers.
However, there was a stock market crash (Oct. 1987), and federal budget deficits and the trade deficit increased.

Foreign policy showed a strong anti-communist stance, via increased defense spending, championing of the MX missile system and the "Star Wars" missile defense program.

Four (4) Reagan-Gorbachev summits (1985-88) climaxed in the INF Treaty (1987) as the Cold War began to wind down. The Iran-Contra affair (Oliver North's TV testimony, July 1987) was a major political scandal.
Homelessness and drug abuse (especially "crack" cocaine) were growing social problems. 

THE RISE OF THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT: THE REAGAN "REVOLUTION" 

From the time American colonists first began to consider breaking away from England to form their own system of government, lively discussion has almost never stopped over the extent of the powers that government should have.

When the ratification of the Constitution was being debated in the late 1780s, some notable patriots argued that the federal government it described would have too much authority over individual states, and"states' rights" versus federal power has been a heated issue ever
since. 

In the 20th century, federal powers expanded in such areas as government regulation of business and banking and in the enactment of social welfare programs. Franklin D Roosevelt's New Deal in the 1930s, Harry S Truman's Fair Deal during the 1940s, and the Great Society of Lyndon B
Johnson during the 1960s were all designed to confront social and economic problems at the federal level.

In 1980, Ronald Reagan campaigned on the theme "Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem." By cutting taxes, ending several social welfare programs, and reducing government regulations on business, he reversed the political trends of the 20th century, and his policies helped revive a sluggish American economy. 

Reagan's policies and his speech-making skills inspired tremendous enthusiasm from his supporters, and resulted in two landslide election victories. Meanwhile, his opponents called attention to enormous federal budget deficits that grew out of control during his administration.
Nevertheless, the nation's oldest president emerged vigorous and still popular after two terms.

"I am the same man I was when I came to Washington," he said when he left the White House. "I believe the same things I believed when I came to Washington." 

When Ronald Reagan was born, his father John took one look at the 10-lb baby boy and called him a "fat little Dutchman" ... the nickname "Dutch" stuck with him for his entire life.  A political liberal in his youth, Ronald Wilson Reagan helped create and spark a conservative coalition in middle age and moved American politics rightward after winning the presidency at age 69. Reagan grew up in a family that was by the standards of the day -- socially as well as politically -- liberal.

His Roman Catholic father Jack and his evangelical Protestant mother Nelle condemned racism and young Ron received help from a Jewish mentor.
Jack's job with the Works Progress Administration helped the family survive the Depression of the 1930s, but Jack's alcoholism left a mark on his son's personality. Outwardly amiable and optimistic, Reagan typically concealed his feelings, avoided confrontations, and cultivated many acquaintances, but few close friends.

After graduating from Eureka College in 1932, Reagan became a radio sportscaster in the Middle West and then began a film acting career in Hollywood. Generally avoiding the movie colony's often wild social life, he nevertheless became active in the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and a master of Hollywood politics. In 1940, he helped to arrange production of his most famous film, "Knute Rockne: All American," in which he starred as Notre Dame football legend George "The Gipper" Gipp.

That same year he married actress Jane Wyman. Involved in national politics as well, he voted for Franklin Delano Roosevelt four (4) times and bled for liberal causes so easily, he would later joke that he was a "hemophiliac." Barred from WWII combat by weak vision, he acted in films and plays produced by the U.S. Army. A series of crises in the late 1940s permanently altered Reagan's life. He almost died of pneumonia, his marriage collapsed, and his movie career stalled.

The Reagans first met in 1949 when Nancy discovered that her name was on mailing lists of left-wing organizations. When she complained, she was referred to Reagan who, as president of the Screen Actor's Guild, was able to straighten it out. Apparently, she had been confused with a different Nancy Davis, and he invited her to dinner so that he could explain.

Their romance developed gradually. Reagan was still upset over his recent divorce from Jane Wyman, but he found Nancy a comforting shoulder to lean on. He was extremely talkative and she was a good listener. They became engaged in February 1952 and were married on March 4, 1952 with actor William Holden serving as best man. Later that year their first child, Patricia Ann "Patti" was born. A son, Ronald Prescott, was born in 1958. Reagan had also had three (3) children during his first marriage (one was adopted and one died in infancy).

Nancy and Ronald's film careers were both winding down during the 1950s. The Reagans bought a ranch, "El Rancho del Cielo," and began moving among a wealthy circle of friends in Southern California. They appeared together in a movie called "Hellcats of the Navy" in 1957. It was Nancy's LAST film work while her husband had all but abandoned movies for television.

REAGAN FILMOGRAPHY:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001654/

Reagan's LAST film, "The Killers," was released in 1964, the same year he made a televised campaign speech for Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater. Goldwater lost the election, but Reagan impressed California Republicans enough to become their candidate for governor in 1966. He won the election.

In the election of 1980, former California Governor Ronald Reagan defeated Jimmy Carter, a victory that signaled the emergence of a strong conservative political movement that would exert great influence in the coming decades. The new conservatism combined antagonism toward government deregulation and taxes, support for an aggressive foreign policy toward the Soviet Union, and promotion of so-called family values based on Christian morality.

Reagan pursued an economic policy -- "Reaganomics" -- of tax cuts and deregulation. When the disastrous economy of the late 1970s entered a period of record expansion after 1982, Reagan's popularity soared. His tough rhetorical stance against the Soviet Union and massive defense build-up likewise earned him support not only from conservatives, but many disaffected middle-class voters who traditionally had voted Democratic. In 1984, Reagan won re-election in a landslide.

Though many found Reagan charming, his presidency was controversial. Annual budget deficits reached record levels in the 1980s pushing the national debt to nearly $3 TRILLION by 1988.

Conservative zeal for prosecuting the Cold War also led to the administration's greatest crisis, the Iran-Contra scandal, an illegal scheme that involved arms sales to Iran to secretly fund anti-communist rebels in Nicaragua. A number of Reagan administration officials were convicted for their role in the scheme, but Reagan avoided prosecution. He also later admitted that his administration had traded arms for hostages with Iran.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS IN THE REAGAN YEARS 

The USSR and EASTERN EUROPE: A troublesome 1980-85 for the USSR was followed by (five) 5 years of astonishing change: the surrender of the Communist monopoly, the remaking of the Soviet state, and the beginning of the disintegration of the Soviet empire.

SOVIET EMPIRE BREAKUP: The world community witnessed the extraordinary disintegration of the Soviet Union into 15 independent states. During the Reagan Era, the 1980s had already seen internal reforms and a decline of Communist power both within the Soviet Union and in Eastern Europe. Russia remained the predominant country after the breakup. In the fall of 1989, the failure of Marxist economies in Eastern Europe was the catalyst in a historic step: The Berlin Wall was opened in Nov 1989.

Remarks on East-West Relations at the Brandenburg Gate in West Berlin

"There is one sign the Soviets can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom and peace. General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, TEAR DOWN THIS WALL!" - President Ronald Reagan, Friday, June 12, 1987

The ABOVE excerpt is from:
http://www.reagan.utexas.edu/archives/speeches/1987/061287d.htm

MIDDLE EAST: The Middle East remained militarily UNstable with sharp divisions along economic, political, racial and religious lines. In Iran, the Islamic revolution of 1979 created a strong anti-U.S. stance (hostage crisis, Nov 1979 - Jan 1981). In Sept 1980, Iraq repudiated its border agreement with Iran and began major hostilities that led to an 8-year war in which millions were killed.

LIBYA: The U.S. accused Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi of aiding terrorists in Dec 1985 in Rome and in Vienna of airport attacks, and Reagan retaliated by bombing Libya in April 1986.

ISRAEL affirmed all Jerusalem as its capital in July 1980, destroyed an Iraqi atomic reactor in 1981, and invaded Lebanon in 1981, forcing the PLO to agree to withdraw. A Palestinian uprising, including women and children hurling rocks and bottles at troops began in December 1987 in Israeli-occupied Gaza and spread to the West Bank. Troops responded with force, killing 300 by the end of 1988 with 6,000 more in detention camps.

LATIN AMERICA / CENTRAL AMERICA:

In NICARAGUA, the U.S. CIA admitted in 1984 to having directed the mining of Nicaraguan ports, and the U.S. sent humanitarian (1985) and military aid in 1986. Profits from secret arms sales to Iran were found to have been diverted to the contras in 1987.

In EL SALVADOR, a military coup in October of 1979 failed to halt extreme right-wing violence and left-wing terrorism. From Jan - June of 1980, some 4,000 civilians were killed in the civil unrest. In 1984, newly elected Pres Jose Napoleon Duarte worked to stem human rights abuses, but violence continued.

RECAP: After 25 years of Cold War detente in practice if not in name, Reagan resumed vigorous denunciation of the Soviet Union as an evil, totalitarian empire. He also sponsored the largest military buildup in U.S. history. In March 1983, confronted with a strong antinuclear protest movement, he proposed a high-tech missile defense system, known as the Strategic Defense Initiative.

Elsewhere, Reagan's diplomacy mixed prudence with exaggerated fears of Third World radicalism. He retained diplomatic relations with communist China and, after a disastrous intervention in the Lebanese civil war which cost more than 300 American lives in guerilla bombings, he prudently withdrew.

On the other hand, he ordered the bombing of Libya and the invasion of Grenada on the dubious grounds that their governments profoundly threatened U.S. interests, and he worked tirelessly to overthrow the Marxist Sandinista regime in Nicaragua.

The degree to which Reagan's military buildup contributed to the collapse of communism remains conjectural, but Reagan UNquestionably responded flexibly as the Soviet Union moved toward democracy under Mikhail Gorbachev. First lady Nancy Reagan, an influential behind-the-scenes figure in the Reagan White House, encouraged this flexibility.

PRESIDENTIAL PROCESSION

APPROACHING THE SUNSET YEARS

After her husband won the presidential election in 1980, Nancy arranged glittering social occasions where men wore tuxedos and women donned glamorous floor-length gowns. Her expensive tastes in parties, White House dinnerware, designer gowns, jewelry and furnishings met with some criticism by people who pointed out that while President Reagan was trimming the federal budget, White House social spending was growing almost out of control. Nancy Reagan handled the criticism by pointing out that her gowns were only on loan from designers and were donated to museums after she wore them.

Those initial concerns soon passed, though. Her involvement with the Foster Grandparents Program and her fight against drug abuse revealed a more serious and caring first lady. She became a spokesperson for the "Just Say NO!" campaign that advised young people to resist trying drugs, and she supported private efforts, rather than government programs, to help combat drug abuse.

Mrs Reagan expanded her drug awareness campaign to an international level by inviting first ladies from around the world to talks on drug abuse, and during the fortieth anniversary of the United Nations in 1985, she was host of a second international drug conference. Nancy Reagan also helped her husband recover from some serious medical problems: He was wounded in an assassination attempt in 1981, he had colon surgery four (4) years later, and prostate surgery in 1987, the same year Nancy herself had surgery to treat breast cancer.

She became increasingly involved in helping direct her husband's administration during his second term. Particularly after his hospitalization, she preferred a more relaxed schedule for him so that he could concentrate on the most significant issues needing his attention. As the Iran-Contra scandal entangled the Reagan administration, she became angry with staff members she felt hadn't helped prepare him for answering tough questions from the press.

Nancy Reagan enjoyed being first lady, but she WELCOMED RETIREMENT after the end of her husband's second term in 1989. She almost immediately established the Nancy Reagan Foundation to continue her campaign to educate people about the dangers of substance abuse, and in 1994, the Foundation joined forces with the BEST Foundation for a Drug-Free Tomorrow. Together they developed the Nancy Reagan Afterschool Program to promote drug prevention for young people.

A devoted couple, the Reagans helped each other through the best and worst of times. Nancy helped arouse her husband's fighting spirit when he was recovering from a gunshot wound in 1981 following a failed assassination attempt, and she was again at his side as he recovered from surgeries in July 1985 and January 1987.

The Reagans returned to their California ranch where the former president remained active before beginning to deal with the effects of Alzheimer's disease. The couple remained devoted to each other as he began suffering more profound effects of the disease, and they founded the Ronald and Nancy Reagan Research Institute as part of the National Alzheimer's Association to help focus attention on the disease and provide information about it.

After the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, CA, opened in 1991, Nancy served on the board for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, which promotes his "Four Pillars of Freedom" -- preserving individual liberty, promoting economic opportunity, advancing democracy around the world, and building PRIDE IN AMERICA's NATIONAL HERITAGE.

At the end of his presidency, the two former actors went home to their California ranch and, after finally riding off together into the sunset, the Reagans enjoyed a peaceful retirement....

THE REAGAN LEGACY 

In his speech, Reagan observed that "Progress may be slow -- measured in inches and feet, not miles -- but we will progress." Small progress in overcoming the economic crisis he identified in the address was made during the first two years of his presidency. Beginning in 1983, the American economy improved and expanded consistently over the next six (6) years -- through the end of Reagan's term.

Tax reduction acts passed in 1981 and 1986 helped relieve the tax burden that Reagan blamed for having stifled growth. Government programs, which Reagan identified as another form of burden, were cut back during his administration with mixed results.

Businesses were able to act with less restraint, but some took advantage of reduced government supervision. The government deficit that Reagan targeted for reduction in his inaugural address actually grew during his presidency, partly from increased military spending and a trade imbalance where imports far outbalanced exports and partly from resistance by Congress to authorize further cuts in government programs.

The economy improved, and some government regulations were enacted later to help maintain order and stability in business. One of the results of the Reagan presidency has been the more careful consideration and debate -- as well as resistance -- that greets each potential new regulation.

To his supporters, that reality is an example of what they call "The Reagan Revolution" -- an administration that turned away from a 50-year trend of large government social programs and brought renewed emphasis to the question of just how powerful Americans want their government to be.

THE ALIEN THREAT AS SEEN FROM RONALD REAGAN's EYES!

Ronald Reagan is the only president, besides Jimmy Carter, to admit publicly that he'd seen a flying saucer. Reagan was also the only president to hypothesize -- albeit metaphorically or hint -- about the possibilities of hostile extraterrestrials posing a threat to Earth.

In a speech before the United Nations General Assembly on Monday, September 21, 1987, Reagan used an example of an alien attack on humanity as a rationale for governments to put aside their differences and come together for the common good. He did so with the full knowledge that many of the assembled press would take his remarks derisively.

Nevertheless, Reagan also knew that most, if not all, of the assembled diplomats represented governments that had their own issues in dealing with the UFO "threat." Reagan had used the same analogy before during a speech at his summit meeting with Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev in 1985.

Unlike his predecessors, some of whom might have been more inclined to disclose the existence of UFOs to the American people, Ronald Reagan proposed the development of a planetary defense system called the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), or as it was dubbed by the media, "Star Wars."

Though the program was touted as a "shield" against incoming Soviet ballistic missiles, many UFO researchers thought that it was public cover FOR ITS REAL MISSION: A DEFENSE SHIELD AGAINST HOSTILE UFOs. In fact, the Soviets were actually inclined to support the project, despite their public protestations, once Reagan offered to make it available to them.

RONALD REAGAN, AN ALIEN INVASION and "THE NEW WORLD ORDER!"

The proponents of the "New World Order" cosmic conspiracy believe that when President Ronald Reagan gave his famous "alien invasion" speech to the entire United Nations General Assembly in September of 1987, he had already secretly advised representatives of the 176 member nations that the leaders of their respective governments must meet the demands of the technologically superior extraterrestrials or be destroyed. In his speech to the General Assembly, Reagan said that an alien threat was already among us.

A number of conspiracy theorists stated that Reagan's speech hinted at a plan agreed to by world leaders that extraterrestrial invaders around the year 2000 would carry out a carefully staged "alien invasion" that would convince the masses of the world that a real-life alien attack from outer space was about to begin. People of all nations would believe their leaders, who would tell them that the aliens were a benevolent species and that unconditional surrender to them would be for everyone's own good.

Immediately following the surrender to the aliens, the united leaders will form a One World Government -- a New World Order -- thus fulfilling biblical prophecies about a return to the days of Babylon. The aliens will revel themselves as demonic entities that delight in doing Satan's work.

Under the One World Government, the following laws and rules will apply:

- There will be NO private or church schools;

- Christianity will NOT be permitted in ANY form;

- There will be only a one-unit monetary system; 

- Population will be limited by restrictions on the number of children per family;

- There will NO middle class, only rulers and servants;

- NONE of the former national boundaries of countries shall exist;

- Privately owned firearms or weapons of any kind will be prohibited;

- A legal system of world courts will oversee a single unified code of laws, enforced by a One World Government police force and a One World unified military; 

- Only ONE RELIGION will be allowed and that will be in the form of a One World Government Church, which will adhere to Satanism or Luciferianism;

- Permanent, NONelected hereditary oligarchists will select serfs from the population and form a feudal system, similar to the one that existed in the Middle Ages; 

- Diseases, wars and famines will be engineered until there are only one (1) billion people -- those who are deemed useful to the ruling classes -- living on the planet; 

- The social system will be on the basis of a welfare state -- those who are obedient and subservient to the One World Government will be rewarded with the means to live. Those who are rebellious will be starved to death or declared outlaws, thereby becoming targets for anyone who wishes to kill them.

CONSPIRACY THEORY 2 of 2: POTSHOTS FROM THE "BUSHY KNOLL?!"  

Talk about a small world! A little before 2:30 p.m. on the afternoon of Monday, March 30, 1981, John Hinckley, Jr -- with a .22 caliber bullet -- almost facilitated VP George Bush's ascendancy to the White House thereby sloughing off his second-banana status eight (8) years ahead of schedule! Vice President George Bush briefly flirted with a fast promotion.

Crouching on the sidewalk in front of the Washington Hilton, John Hinckley, Jr began firing six (6) explosive "devastator" bullets from his Rohm R6-14 revolver at Ronald Reagan. He survived after surgery at George Washington University Hospital where he told his wife Nancy: "Honey, I forgot to duck!"

Small world, indeed. For that very same day, John Hinckley's older brother Scott, had a dinner date with an old friend of the family: NEIL BUSH, son of the vice president! Scott Hinckley was vice president of his father's Denver-based firm, Vanderbilt Energy Corp.

What some saw as merely an odd "coincidence" prompted more conspiratorially attuned eyebrows to arch like divining rods. After all, what are the ODDS of the president's constitutional successor and the president's would-be assassin knowing each other?! Probably ZERO!

But the Bushes and Hinckleys went way back, to Texas of the 1960s, where both George Bush and John Hinckley, Sr had amassed personal fortunes in the booming oil industry. Both were blue bloods who circulated in the same privileged circles, which the transplanted aristocrats liked to call their "Texas Raj."

* In the NBC special reports aired immediately after the shooting, correspondent Judy Woodruff said that at least one (1) shot was fired from the hotel ABOVE Reagan's limousine. She later elaborated saying a Secret Service agent had fired that shot from the hotel overhang. Could Reagan's wound have been inflicted by friendly fire? Did we glimpse a bona fide "second gunman" a la JFK in Dealey Plaza?

Either way, Woodruff's account might explain HOW a slug managed to strike Reagan when his limo's bulletproof door stood BETWEEN him and Hinckley. Sizing up the Bush-Hinckley nexus, conspiracy sentry John Judge has theoretically dubbed this "the shot from the Bushy knoll."

* In October 1980, Hinckley, Jr flew to Nashville to stalk Jimmy Carter, but was arrested at the airport when authorities discovered three (3) handguns in his suitcase. Oddly, after ONLY FIVE (5) HOURS IN CUSTODY, this unstable and antisocial pariah -- who had attempted to transport weapons across state lines and into a city soon to be visited by the president of the United States -- was fined and RELEASED without further ado! Even more oddly, authorities apparently didn't bother to examine his journal, which in "Dear Diary" fashion, detailed Hinckley's plans to kill Carter! Was this a case of bumbling negligence or something more ominous?

* Finally, a pall of suspicion quite naturally fell over VP George "Poppy" Bush the preppy achiever and future president whose spooky pedigree was longer than a Texas stretch limo. Like his father before him, Bush, Sr was a member of Yale's elite "Skull and Bones Society," which had weaned more than a few powerhouse pols, Wall Street lions, CIA "black world" superstars and a 1980s group of disgruntled intel operatives known loosely as "Agents for Bush" who had been fired by CIA Director Admiral Stansfield Turner under the Carter administration.

* There are also a couple of parallels between Hinckley, Sirhan Sirhan [assassinated Robert Kennedy on 6-5-1968], Mark David Chapman [John Lennon's assassin on 12-8-1980], Arthur Herman Bremer [Alabama Gov. George Wallace's would-be assassin on 5-15-72] and Patrick Purdy, the commando-geared gunman who slaughtered five (5) Vietnamese children, and wounded another 30, in a Stockton, CA, school yard on Tuesday, January 17, 1989. ALL were heavily dosed with psychiatric drugs -- mind-control drugs by definition.

Purdy strode coolly onto that playground, pumping away with his Chinese-style, semi-automatic AK-47 assault rifle firing 104 full-metal-jacketed MILITARY-TYPE bullets loaded in 7.62 X 39mm cartridges with the same GLAZED-EYED ROBOTIC DEMEANOR CHARACTERISTIC of one-day spree killers. Many of those killers are dosed with mood-altering drugs, a fact little publicized when such tragedies occur.

Before drawing his gun to shoot at Reagan, Hinckley has said that he had hoped someone would STOP him. As he drew his gun, he felt, "Now, I have NO choice." He said he felt "relieved" once the shooting was over. Like Chapman and Sirhan before him, he squeezed out bullet after bullet, then became preternaturally calm, as if his PREDETERMINED MISSION/FUNCTION function was now complete.

Perhaps, Hinckley, Purdy, et al., were the victims of psychiatry gone berserk, monsters manufactured by accident. OR perhaps they were DELIBERATELY PROGRAMMED MIND CONTROLLED ASSASSINS [CIA's MK-ULTRA] courtesy of a little known, hole-in-the-wall USG "black world" agency that "takes care of things" outside of normal channels.
