Dr. Bruce Maccabee is a retired optical physicist, and has been one of the premier UFO researchers in the last few decades. His accomplishments in this field are too long to list here, but in particular, Dr. Maccabee was the first to receive the FBI’s UFO files via a FOIA request in the late 1970s. A FBI story on a memo in these files has been getting a lot of attention lately. In this story, the FBI referenced having released the UFO memo in the 70s, they were referring to Dr. Maccabee. Even though this is the case, no one in the media has bothered talking to Dr. Maccabee about the memo, so we are.
In this edition of Open Minds UFO Radio, we talk about how the media has gotten this story wrong, Dr. Maccabee’s opinion of this now infamous “Hottel” UFO memo, and what insights the FBI’s UFO files give us into their investigations into the subject.

Bruce Maccabee is one of the premier mainstream UFO scientists of the past four decades, second perhaps behind Jacques Vallee and Stanton Friedman.
His accomplishments are many and his credibility can be seconded by the U.S. Navy. Nobody has as much experience when it comes to verifying or debunking UFO photographs and films.
Once again apologies for my infrequent posting. I have an ongoing family health crisis ( not me this time! ) which takes my time. But I’ll give you a little food for thought this week in this UFOTV video by Stanton Friedman, nuclear physicist and premier UFO researcher and major proponent of the nuts and bolts theory of UFOs.
Personally, I don’t think all UFOs are alien space vehicles, but there’s a chance a good many of them are, and Friedman gives his case a nice reason to be believed.
According to a U.S. government think tank, the Collins Elite, the UFO phenomenon is actually linked with angels and demons, not aliens.
In their view, this validates Conservative Christianity and that the U.S. government must turn more theocratic in nature in order to combat the “alien” invasion and save the soul of the nation.
UFO researcher Tim Beckley believes this outlook should be given more thought and that there’s a lot of evidence for it:
It’s UFOlogy’s dirty little secret. It’s something that is better left swept under the rug. Stanton Friedman doesn’t talk about it. Stephen Bassett most assuredly would keep the subject at arm’s length. The late Richard Hall would have deleted you from his address book. And Steven Greer would never consider it part of his ongoing Disclosure program.
To coin ourselves a catch-all phrase that brings together all the negative aspects of the subject, I prefer to call it the DARK SIDE OF UFOLOGY!
It would appear – at least at first glance – that only those who consider themselves Christian fundamentalists have a rigorous drum to beat on behalf of the subject matter we are considering – that at least some UFOs can rightfully be tied in with Demonic phenomenon. It would seem to be almost an exclusive element of their zealous faith based belief system that contends anything remotely occult or supernatural—and that would definitely include UFOs — has a stanch ally in the devil and his minions. Christian apologist, Dave Hunt has stated, “the same people that run UFOs are the same people that run haunted houses.“
Indeed, it has become more apparent even by those who for decades held dearly to a deep belief that UFOs must be interplanetary in nature, that there is a paranormal nature to this enigma that cannot easily be set aside. Several top notch researchers — such as the late Dr J. Allen Hynek’s former associates Ted Phillips and Philip Imbrogno — have come to realize that we are NOT dealing solely with physical craft from outer space occupied by off-world astronauts coming to warn us that we might possibly annihilate ourselves either ecologically or in the course of our warlike nature.
More and more emphasis needs to be placed on the spiritual, occult and paranormal nature of the phenomenon seen in our skies and invading our homes and personal boundaries. It’s not all “sweetness and light,” kiddies. The truth is that there are a host of negative elements associated with UFO encounters. Some of the entities involved could very well be leading us down the primrose path. You can believe, and the evidence clearly is undisputable, that there are cosmic criminals in our midst who have successfully managed to possess and control the minds of utterly frightened participants who had no warning that they were to be caught up inside a nightmarish web of confusion and chaos.
The late Lord Hill Norton head Admiral of the British Fleet was quoted as saying he felt UFOs were demonic in nature.
There are numerous aspects of this dark side of UFOs that we examine closely in our just published book Round Trip To Hell In A Flying Saucer: UFO Parasites, Alien Soul Suckers, Invaders From Demonic Realms.
+ The connection between UFOs, demons, and possibly Satan himself.
+ The fascination for and the link between Nazism, occultism and post WWII German-made flying saucers.
+ The ghastly exercise of blood draining and human sacrifice throughout antiquity and their relationship to animal and human mutilations and blood letting in modern times, which align closely to the appearance of UFOs in specific theaters of operation on our planet.
+ The weird claims of John Lear that aliens are coming here to kidnap humans and not return them. That people are being used for food, and how “they” are performing sadistic experimentations upon us, and are attempting to suck out our souls and place them in “containers” for their own perverted use.
+ The Islamic belief in the normally invisible elementals identified in the Koran as the Jinn and how these malevolent spirits are able to misrepresent themselves by camouflaging their true identity and traveling around at fantastic speeds.
+ Shape shifters who can turn into human looking beings, animals, orbs, fireballs or manifest themselves even as physical “hardware” to fool us into believing they are mechanical devices.
+ The casting of magical spells, occult rituals and the ability to conjure up
spirits and beings often mistaken for UFOnauts but more closely aligned with the elemental kingdom.
UFO REPORTS ARE STRIKINGLY SIMILAR TO
DEMONIC POSSESSION AND PSYCHIC PHENOMENON
Long time investigator Ann Druffel says the aliens are not who they claim they are, but have sinister motives.
I don’t think a week went by when my mail box (not the one that is part of your Windows or Mac, but the one that stands, or used to stand, at the curb) wasn’t jammed with a couple of large manila envelopes from William C. Lamb.
To be honest, our “correspondence” was mostly one sided. To me, Lamb was a bit of a nutter (British for crackpot). He claimed to have images of heaven and even God’s throne that astronomers had photographed through high powered telescopes that exist on the edge of the galaxy. To him the ole man in the clouds was as real as you or I and the Lord’s Kingdom was a place you could actually see if you had a powerful enough telescope. Kind of crazy, right? Well, the story doesn’t end there. According to Lamb, he knew all about God and Satan firsthand because he had seen Beelzebub with his own eyes. No! It wasn’t part of a near-death or out-of-body experience, but a component of a UFO landing.
Lamb had been out hunting in a snowstorm around four or five AM in February 1922, as he explained, when he heard a buzzing sound and saw this huge spherical craft hovering over a nearby field. It was so large and brilliant to his eyes that it blocked out the stars and he found himself mesmerized by its sudden appearance. He watched in awe as a partition opened on the side of the craft and a gigantic creature with wings flew to the ground and landed in the snow. The being was somewhere between seven and eight feet tall and appeared demonic in its facial features and physical form. Lamb said he hid behind a tree and watched as it tracked through the snow, its hooves – yes, I said hooves – melting down to the tundra as it went along. Eventually it came to a sturdy wire fence and managed to just walk through it, burning through the mesh and leaving it looking red hot.
At the time I had every reason to believe Lamb was totally delusional. It was
obvious that he saw everything through the eyes of orthodox religion. So much so that when he was approached by this ghoulish figure he managed to get it to fly off, using the name of Jesus and commanding it to depart.
The case is known to others besides me. Apparently a letter or two from W.C. was also preserved in the Air Force’s Project Blue Book files because astute researcher Jacques Vallee mentions it in his book Passport to Magonia. Vallee has long expressed his opinions that, “UFOs are real but they are not physical. They are messengers of deception,” and that, “. . .the UFOs beings of today belong to the same class of manifestation as the (occult) entities that were described in centuries past.”
As far back as the 1960s – perhaps earlier! — certain fractions in the U.S. government and military acknowledged the occult nature of what were still referred to in many circles as flying saucers. In 1969 the U.S. Printing Office issued a 400-page publication entitled UFOs And Related Subjects, a huge compendium of over 1000 books, literature and testimonies of UFO contactees. The document was compiled for the Air Force and the Library of Congress by Lynn Catoe who in its Introduction matter-of-factly states: “A large part of the available UFO literature is closely linked with mysticism and the metaphysical. It deals with subjects like mental telepathy, automatic writing and invisible entities as well as phenomenon like poltergeist manifestations and possession. Many of the UFO reports now being published in the popular press recount alleged incidents that are strikingly similar to demonic possession and psychic phenomenon that have long been known to theologians and parapsychologists.” Others with a decisively Christian bent have expressed concern that “the aliens often encourage illicit sex, and other ungodly things.” One abductee Calvin Parker told me that aliens had caused the AIDS virus and that, “I think they are demons. I feel like it’s evil. It could come from another world, but I think it’s kind of interdimensional in this one,” Parker explained to a reporter.
Ann Druffel has been active in investigating UFOs since 1957 when she joined the National Investigations Committee on Unidentified Flying Objects. The affable author of Tujunga Canyon Contacts (co-authored by D. Scott Rogo) and How To Defend Yourself Against Alien Abduction is a no nonsense type of individual. She has paid her dues and everyone respects her opinions, even when she unhesitantly states: “The entities who pose as ‘extraterrestrials’ are not what they say they are. Rather, they are apparently unwholesome entities who have deceived and interacted with humans since the dawn of history. Be they mythic, ‘real,’ ‘spiritual,’ interdimensional or from a ‘hidden world’ which somehow exists in or alongside our own earth plane, I cannot say, since proof still eludes us. I do know for certain, however, that interfering, shape shifting, ‘otherworldly’ entities have been described by every major culture (and many smaller cultures) on the face of the earth down through the millennia, and that these older cultures developed means to fend them off or, at the very least, recognized them for what they were.”
UNCLE SAM’S DEMONIC THINK TANK
Nick Redfern is one of the few investigative journalists that is almost universally respected in a field where disagreements and lingering grudges between UFOlogists are fairly common. Recently, he authored a book, Final Events: And The Secret Government Group on UFOs and the Afterlife which just about ruined his near perfect reputation. The work details the history of a hidden think tank within the U.S. Government that believes rather than having alien origins, UFOs are really a tool of the Devil.
We sat down for a length interview with Redfern to be found in Round Trip To Hell In A Flying Saucer. Redfern explained to me that the think tank was begun to try and exploit the mental powers of what they called “Non-Human Entities,” commonly known as the Grays. “There were people in the official world,” Nick says, “that wanted to see if the mind-power of the Grays could be utilized as a form of mind-weaponry by the Pentagon, and the Department of Defense ..something along the lines of a next generation Remote Viewing type program.“ The more the Pentagon group got into the project, “the more they came to believe that the Grays were highly deceptive, and they also came to believe the Grays were actually – and quite literally – deceptive demons from Hell, who were here to deceive us about their true agenda – which was to bring people over to the dark side and prepare things for Armageddon, but to do it under the guise of a faked alien appearance,” or so Redfern reveals.
“As for abductions, the think tank believes the whole alien scenario is a scam – a series of brain-induced hallucinations provoked by these entities as a means to reinforce the idea that they are aliens here to experiment on us..” Furthermore, the they can seemingly, “provoke hallucinatory imagery in the mind: aliens, goblins, Bigfoot, etc. to make us believe we’re seeing something physical and external.”
The group came to conclude, says Redfern, “That Earth is a farm, and that we are the cattle. . .that these entities essentially are here to harvest and feed upon the energy of our soul at death because these demonic creatures are basically energy-based, and our energy feeds and fuels them.” This task is further expanded upon in our book by retired CIA “jockey” and ace pilot John Leer who has long maintained such a “peculiar” theory.
For our book Round Trip To Hell In A Flying Saucer, we have gathered together our own “think tank” of prominent individuals to express their opinions and to collectively publish their own findings. Included in this roster are Brad Steiger, Adam Gorightly, Kenn Thomas, Brent Raynes as well as the posthumous John Keel author of Trojan Horse and Mothman Prophecies.
Incorporated in this large sized work is also a little known tome published in 1955 from which we adapted the overall title of our own work. Not only did Cecil Michael claim to rub shoulders with Mr Scratch, but he says he went with him straight to hell. Proclaims the flyleaf on a very rare copy: “Here is one of the most startling stories ever written! The narrator, calmly working in his auto repair shop, suddenly finds himself playing host to a pair of visitors from outer space. From that moment his entire life is changed.
“For weeks the Spacemen practice all types of weird experiments upon their bewildered friend, who is too terrified to protest. Finally, wearying of their ingenious super-games, they decide to take the poor auto mechanic on a trip to Hell. . .And, as you descend with the narrator into a modern Inferno, you will pray, with the auto mechanic who tells the story, that his visit will be a short one.”
The British publication Magonia encapsulates Cecil Michael’s bizarre Round Trip To Hell In A Flying Saucer in this manner:
“The craft went off into space, eventually arriving at a bleak red planet with a lake of fire into which coffins were cast, the dead bodies inside them then coming to life and burning in agony. He was afraid that he would be trapped there permanently, but apparently he was saved by a vision of Christ that appeared in a beam of white light, and returned to Earth. The trip seemed to have taken four days, but only four hours had passed.”
Without a doubt this can be said to be our oddest contribution to the overall body of UFO and paranormal literature we have published over the last five decades. It discusses a theory that is straight out of the movie The Exorcist.
To many it will be a difficult to accept concept. To others it is something that they already recognize as part of their on going faith. It is none the less a premise that needs to be explored.
An old Sir Arthur C. Clarke saying comes to mind in this instance; “A sufficiently advanced alien technology is indistuigishable from magic.”
I don’t think a truly alien intelligence would be an exclusive view-point of a local planetary religion, but would perhaps disguise itself as one in order to carry out an objective.
Hat tip to The Anomalist.
It has been four years since I wrote my popular blog post UFOs, history and the hardware and while I have researched other subjects over that time, researching UFOs and what they might be comes back into my ken . I guess what is your first love is always your first love, no matter what.
During that four year period I have read works written by Jacques Vallee, Richard Dolan, Nick Pope, Zecharia Sitchin and of course, Stanton Friedman. And I’m not even counting the many podcasts and YouTube videos posted by others over those years I listened to and watched.
So what have I learned?
That reality is in the eye of the beholder.
Yeah, that could be a cop-out, but truthfully I have concluded that there might not be a definitive answer when it comes to the UFO phenomenon.
Are flying saucers ET vehicles or deep black craft made by the U.S. Military-Industrial-Complex? Well, check out Area 51.
Of course the main stream media have literally no credibility when it comes to Area 51. You be the judge.
Then there is the story of Dr. Dan Burisch/Crain of Area S-4 fame and supposed former Majestic-12 operative.
He proclaims that ETs are time travelers from the future, and thusly are a branch of Humanity not yet evolved. They are not true “aliens” at all. And he gives an excellent description of Area 51 and the S-4 complex he worked at.
Is Dr. Dan a disinformation artist or is he the real deal? I’m not sure, but I like the time traveler theory. Any descendent race of humanity colonizing another planet, no matter how Earth-like will have to undergo some sort of tranformation, either bioengineered or by natural selection. True aliens wouldn’t resemble human beings at all in my view, if one takes the theory of planetary evolution seriously.
And then there is Bob Lazar. One cannot talk about UFO hardware in Area 51 and S-4 without mentioning Bob Lazar. Although many have tried to discredit Bob over the years, his story has remained consistant and unchanging over the years. In my opinion, I think he is the real deal, for whatever that is worth.
Of course when one talks about Bob, you can’t leave out his friend John Lear. Lear is an enigma to me. At times he smacks of unflagging credibility simply because of his mass of flying different types of aircraft over the years from the time he was sixteen years old (just from being the son of the man who invented the Lear Jet). A person doesn’t reach that accoplishment from being an unstable psycho wacko.
But then again, some of his stories are really hard to swallow. Just listen to what he has to say and you be the judge.
In closing, my conclusion is that the answer to UFO hardware is buried in the Nevada desert and in old records at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. If supposed time traveling ETs from the future left any kind of hardware laying around, the military-industrial-complex of the United States has confiscated it and you bet your back-side the technology has been back engineered to the max if possible.
