Join the Boycott to Protest the CIA Coverup of President Obama's Trips to Mars

You just couldn't make this up:

For the past few years I have been reporting from time to time on the absurd claims of a group of UFOlogists calling their study Exopolitics, "political implications of the extra-terrestrial presence." Alfred Lambremont Webre claims to have been the founder of Exopolitics, although in reality Michael Salla can probably claim that dubious honor. Webre has the website, while Salla has .

Michael Salla's "Exopolitics" banner
Lately Webre's claims have gotten so bizarre (the war between the Andromeda Council and the Reptilians, Americans being teleported to a secret base on Mars to meet with aliens) that even others in exopolitics became alarmed, and began distancing themselves from him. (This recalls the old joke about the tenor who was so stupid that even the other tenors noticed it.) As Salla recently wrote, "Webre is a marginal and controversial figure in the network of exopolitics researchers and activists that has formed around the world. Webre's writing and behavior is seen as too bizarre and controversial for most credible exopolitics researchers to use." Nonetheless, Webre's far-out articles on the Examiner were being read by as many as 400,000 people each month. Until recently, that is, when gave him the boot.

Webre's colleague Jon Kelly, "a world-famous expert in the application of voice-based disclosure technology for revealing UFO secrets" (WTF?), writes
Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal Judge and founder of Exopolitics Alfred Lambremont Webre is calling for consumers to occupy an immediate boycott of pay-per-impression advertising funded news website’s corporate publication ban against the Seattle Exopolitics Examiner is an Illuminati agenda-inspired media hit targeting the columnist who revealed President Barack Obama’s participation in the CIA’s secret Mars visitation program."

Pieces on are presented to make you think you're reading a news story. One time a colleague and I were discussing one of Webre's absurd columns in claiming that NASA was promoting (not debunking)  fears of an "extinction level event" from Comet Elenin, and he asked me "What kind of newspaper is publishing crazy stuff like this?"  I replied "I don't think it's actually a newspaper, it's more like this guy's blog." Well, in his feud with, Webre spelled out's business model:
During 2009 many of the writers were receiving $0.01 per page view. later offered a variety of pay scale options to their writers. now bases compensation on variables such as subscriptions, page view traffic and session length.... derives the bulk of its revenue from consumer (reader) click-throughs.  Every time you as a reader click through to read an article on, the company is paid a royalty by its advertisers.
Let's see, one cent per page at 400,000 pages per month gets you $4,000 a month, although Webre suggests  that was only in a good month. So the formula for success as a UFO writer seems to be: make up the most outrageous claims you can think of and put it on, then sit back and collect the coins dropping into the hopper. And here am I, stupidly wasting my time and effort writing a skeptical Blog! Webre does not say exactly what happened to get him kicked off It cannot be that they are concerned about their journalistic credibility, for they have none. Webre does say, " has been criticized for its lack of verification and fact-checking of stories published on the site, including accusations of plagiarism."

Webre's request is simple: "Please let your friends and networks know you are boycotting because it is promoting the CIA’s Obama on Mars cover-up, and its direct assault on the Truth movement and Truth movement journalists like Alfred Lambremont Webre." How would that be for a Facebook status?

New : Historical UFO Documents (Klass, Hynek, others)

On my website, I have recently began scanning and posting PDF files of some of the more significant correspondence and other historical documents in my private collection. (That's one reason I haven't posted much here recently). These papers involve such well-known UFOlogists and UFO witnesses as Philip J. Klass, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, Dr. James E. McDonald, Dr. Carl Sagan, Dr. Thornton Page, Dr. David Jacobs, Lonnie Zamora, Capt. Lawrence Coyne, etc. I first began corresponding with Philip J. Klass in 1968, and we stayed in touch until his death in 2005. Klass' papers were then donated to the American Philosophical Society, where they can be requested by researchers willing to travel to Philadelphia to see them, or to pay the associated fees to have copies sent. My intention is to post all of the most significant UFO related papers, especially Klass' "White Papers," on my website.

At present, here are some of the more interesting and significant papers:

There will be more papers to follow, that I will post as time permits
