Eisenhower and the Aliens
President Eisenhower had three secret meetings with aliens, former Pentagon consultant claims. Ex-President met with extra-terrestrials on three separate occasions at New Mexico air base ... Eisenhower and other FBI officials are said to have organised the showdown with the space creatures by sending out 'telepathic messages' – UK Daily Mail
Dominant Social Theme: Wow, this Eisenhower was something else – a Supreme Allied Commander with a telepathic bent.
Free-Market Analysis: We have long pointed out that one of the elite's dominant social themes is the idea that aliens are involved with Earth, as an Internet search on "Daily Bell" and "alien invasion" shows.
This fear-based promotion is helpful to the Anglosphere power elite because it often breeds among people a kind of paranoia, which in turn gives the powers-that-be a more sympathetic environment for more expansive government and charismatic "leaders."
The "aliens among us" meme also provides the elites with a great way of devaluing and controlling the alternative Internet media. By planting dubious "alien" stories within controlled media environments that appear to be alternative media sites (but are not) the powers-that-be can devalue serious exposes.
Often these "aliens among us" stories are sprinkled like spice among serious articles regarding the military-industrial complex, central banking and other subjects that warrant study and consideration. Often referred to as "poisoning the well," inserting such stories – articles generally about the paranormal, the Illuminati, etc. – creates an environment where, for many people, every kind of alternative viewpoint is then cast into doubt.
Lately, as we have documented over the past year or more, there are more and more of these stories featuring off-Earth creatures. Now, here at DB we're not going to suggest that there are NO other intelligent life forms in the universe. But we have a hard time with the "here and now" stuff.
The idea that Eisenhower sat down at a conclave with "grays" and plenty of witnesses is just a bit hard for us to believe. It sounds more like a Grade D Hollywood movie than real history. Here's some more from the article:
Conspiracy theorists have circulated increased rumours in recent months that the meeting between the Commander-in-Chief and people from another planet took place. But the claims from Mr Good, a former U.S. Congress and Pentagon consultant, are the first to be made publicly by a prominent academic.
Speaking on Frank Skinner's BBC2 current affairs show Opinionated, he said that governments around the world have been in regular contact with aliens for many decades ... It has been claimed that Dwight D. Eisenhower met the extra-terrestrials at the Holloman Air Force base in New Mexico.
The initial meeting is supposed to have taken place with aliens who were 'Nordic' in appearance, but the agreement was eventually 'signed' with a race called 'Alien Greys'. Mr Good added: 'We know that up to 90 per cent of all UFO reports can be explained in conventional terms. However, I would say millions of people worldwide have actually seen the real thing.'
There are yet more reasons for the power elite to float this sort of narrative. Thanks to what we call the Internet Reformation, more and more people are discovering the many ways their lives have been manipulated.
But by adding a good dollop of information about non-existent aliens, the elites can dilute that dawning knowledge and redirect credulous people away from the really important matters – such as how the society in which they live and work has been constructed to deny them freedom and reduce their opportunities.
It's all about control, and the way to induce control is to create these vast historical narratives – what we have come to call directed history. In the 20th century, such directed history was from what we can tell amazingly effective. The elites developed their story lines, hired their cronies to play their parts and then wrote the "approved" history in the aftermath.
The goal was always apparently the same, however. World domination – what's been called a New World Order. The 20th century moved the peoples of Earth a good way closer to that destination. The 21st century was supposed to have finished the job, but the Internet's sparked a growing comprehension – and resentment – having to do with what's REALLY taking place.
We've been waiting for the proverbial other shoe to drop, frankly. We wouldn't put it past the current powers-that-be to organize a large false-flag event featuring aliens. It seems to us that's where they're headed, though perhaps the Internet itself and the ability of people to scrutinize power elite themes has made them more cautious.
As cautious as they may be these days, the elites are a contemptuous bunch. They simply don't believe that even massive exposes of their activities matter much. We see it differently.
Conclusion: If the powers-that-be DO try create some massive false-flag alien episode, they may find people are not nearly so credulous as in the 1920s when Orson Welles caused massive hysteria with his War of the Worlds broadcast. Times are changing.

DB - you've pushed these ideas too!
Reply from The Daily Bell
Ha, are you implying David Icke is an alien? Anyway ... there is a difference it seems to us between presenting anomalous ideas and describing a full-fledged formal (if secret) alien presence on earth. One challenges the accepted wisdom of the day, the other is perhaps a purposefully promoted elitist dominant social theme aimed at manipulating people and their belief structures for purposes of building more effective global governance.

"by sending out 'telepathic messages' "
telepathetic is closer to the truth...
and, inevitably, when "divide and conquor" converges to where it must: blowback directed, finally at the correct target: those claiming to be "master"
... is the point in time when some "event" will be contrived, in a false attempt to focus our collective wrath elsewhere.
be wary of this, as DB states quite well...

Look into CROP CIRCLES. Crop circles are the real deal: phenomena not explainable in any scientific, earth bound way and generated by energy fields not (yet) acknowledged by the scientific community. The Anglosphere has tried everything in their power to discredit their annual appearances around the globe - and failed. Crop circles cannot but be designed and executed by an extra terrestrial intelligence. They are talking to us, not in the conventional sense but through their symbology. Their mere existence cuts elite hubris down a few notches. And you can look it all up ON THE INTERNET.

As many have suggested, crop circles could easily be done by satellites.
Reply from The Daily Bell
From what we have observed, crop circles often seem to be connected via small definable pathways through the field where the people who apparently made them late at night walked, single file, with their brooms, sweepers, pegs and ropes to the selected destination ...
Posted by dimitri on 02/16/12 03:53 PM
Whose satellites? Then, on the ground, the bending and sort of instant microwaving of the crops into their intended design are not known to be replicable by any man made instrument. But who am I to quibble? Never know what NASA and the rest of the alphabet soup agencies come up with that is top secret now only to be revealed as old hat thirty years from now.

The use of wacky UFO stories as a dismissive screen is certainly useful to diguise genuine aerial secrets--now. However, given the interest and alarm from the USAF in the late 1940s and early 1950s, I'd say it began far less as an official propaganda meme than an annoyance to officialdom. It was always fantastic-- e.g., a fantasy-- and the concept of alien saucers zipping around nuclear sites and military installations was a potentially worrisome myth which needed to be officially tamped down. There probably WAS nothing to it at any time, but its popularity undercut the real meme, that is, the US is invincible, the Ruskies don't have a chance against our superior air power, etc.
Tim Good, the "expert" quoted here, is an enjoyable writer and has been spouting silliness for a couple of decades. It's not as if any of this "news" is new. Among other myths, Good's book ABOVE TOP SECRET (published about 1980) deals with the alleged meeting of Eisenhower with the little green guys, ostensibly when Ike was out of commission in Palm Springs after a heart attack. It's no more fact-based that Tim Good's affably daft insisting that the US astronauts are all hiding the truth of the spooky stuff they saw in space and on the Moon. (Specifically dismissed by even astronauts on friendly terms with Timothy Good.)
I think it's unlikely but not impossible to use the "UFO" meme as some sort of power threat, though there are proponents of the idea. One screwball dame, whose main claim to fame seems to be she worked as Werner von Braun's secretary (or at least has a couple snapshots with her standing next to him) insists that Von Braun's secret fear was that the Powers That Be would create a phantom "alien menace" to trump the fears of Communism, terrorism, and anything else, as a device to use to consolodate a world order against the terrible threat from outer space.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

The "scientific tests" done on the silly crop circles by well-meaning fatheads are the aesthetic equal to leeching a sick person to suck the evil spirits from the bad blood.

"given the interest and alarm from the USAF in the late 1940s and early 1950s"
... nothing at all to do with the budgest cuts and loss of MIC resources, post WWII and eating the "peace dividend". Luckily, THEY were better prepared with "alternate threats" when the "evil empire" so rudely imploded, despite massive subsidies to "keep it afloat".

It seems mankind has always been a dupe for frightful things. From an underworld full of goulish creatures and hob goblins to the Christian sponsorship of Satan himself, best recruiting tool ever.
It just never ends.

Ha ha! This was great, Daily Bell. After the day I had, I needed a good laugh. Thanks! I absolutely believe you are correct in your analysis. I also have been watching for a false flag event involving aliens. I think they are throwing stuff out there to see what sticks. Too funny for words!

Eek, my secret is out...

Of the time I've been visiting here this has to be the first time that I have ever disagreed with the Daily Bell; fortunately it's a very small point. Check out some of the viral videos that folks like the MythBusters are having to prove are faked and you can see how a good chunk of the people can be fooled all the time. First scary part is they are allowed to vote. The second scary part is they will probably turn on those of us who notice the manufactured illusion being employed when we try to warn them.
"Why'd y'all shoot that guy?"
"To shut 'em up. He kept yelling something about 'the man behind the curtain, the man behind the curtain!' It got kinda irritating."

"The idea that Eisenhower sat down at a conclave with "grays" and plenty of witnesses is just a bit hard for us to believe. It sounds more like a Grade D Hollywood movie than real history. Here's some more from the article:" F Movie would be more appropriate. Most Americans laugh off alien invasions, abductions and sightings. The most compelling evidence to date may be the photos of a one armed Swiss fellow. However, given the advanced technology of any aliens visiting earth, it would be foolhardy to believe we could defeat them with our fossil based energy schemes and this includes nuclear bombs that would Only damage ourselves. Perhaps our best hope would be the weapon the Europeans used best against the natives of the Americas: the spread of diseases. Besides the USA does not need Aliens, all the USA has to do is villainize an Iraq or IRAN or in the future a Switzerland and stage a false flag attack e.g. Swiss Bankers launching an attack on American Banks and stealing millions in pension funds.

I'm surprised the DB didn't include their review of the "Thrive" movie. Didn't you say you would force an elf to sit down and watch it?
Talk about a good example of poisoning the well, even though I am pretty sympathetic to New Age-y stuff.
Posted by Bluebird on 02/16/12 07:30 PM
Good, Ol' Grey Ghost. But I am still laughing. Someone please tell Al and company to forget it. No way will we believe the aliens told them they could see earth from their place because of all the steam rising off the cow... gas. Hoot! What a world.

I must say one of the most disappointing articles on DB. While I agree there is an ever increasing alien meme I don't agree on this article's lack of balance in the arguments presented.
Recently, The White House has put out an offical denial that Obama was part of Project Pegasus. 5 independant whistleblowers where part of a secret government time travelling project that amongst other things teleported people to mars.
Amongst the whistleblower is Laura Magdalene Eisenhower great-granddaughter of the former president. The government have been infuriated by the claims. Exo-Politico Alfred Lambremont Weber published the ground breaking article in the Examiner and was consequently fired and his articles removed.
He was the judge in Kualalumpar recently that trialed Bush and Blair for crimes against Peace. There have also been other military whistleblowers that have come out and stated that UFO have deactivated nuclear missles. I would encourage the writer to dig deeper into the hype and the memes and not be part of the scoffing. There are life on other planets and around the universe and they are increasingly visible.

Sorry we disappointed. If it makes you feel any better, no one can say with full certainty that there are not already space aliens on earth. It's just that we find the hypothesis fairly doubtful.
