Info-ParaNet Newsletters, Number 112 Thursday, December 28th 1989 Today's Topics: Blue Book Expungement MJ-12 Document - HOAX! Re: Lazar/Area51 Re: Info-Paranet Newsletter KVEG/Lazar Transcript #1 KVEG/Lazar Transcript #2 KVEG/Lazar Transcript #3 KVEG/Lazar Transcript #4 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From: paranet!f37.n114.z1.FIDONET.ORG!Jim.Speiser Subject: Blue Book Expungement Date: 27 Dec 89 05:59:00 GMT I must say I am very distressed at the news that all the names are being excised from the Blue Book files ("Crawdaddy" Magazine article by Jim Hougan). Does anyone know why this is being done? Can the Privacy Act be invoked ex post facto like this? It seems to me that UFOlogy has a big political issue right here, that many otherwise contentious groups could unite behind. I certainly hope the big UFO magazines run editorials on this.

Date: 27 Dec 89 06:42:00 GMT As Robert Sheaffer reported here earlier, one of the MJ-12 documents has finally been shown - CONCLUSIVELY - to have been hoaxed. Included with the package of documents received in photographic form by Jaime Shandera was a letter from Harry Truman to James Forrestal giving his formal approval to the MJ-12 project. The signature on that letter is an EXACT duplicate of one found on a real Truman document, reports Phil Klass in the latest Skeptical Inquirer. The MJ-12 signature is 3.6% larger than the legitimate one, which is exactly 3 times the enlargement factor of a standard Xerox machine (1.2%, in order to cover up the "framing" effect produced if a document isn't quite as large as the copying glass). Klass theorizes that it would take three Xeroxing procedures to transfer the real signature onto the bogus document. I have to hand it to Phil on this one...the evidence is plain. The Forrestal letter is a hoax. The distressing thing in all this is Stan Friedman's stubborn refusal to back off. Worse, apparently Friedman knew of the conclusions of the handwriting analysts, yet went right on with his lectures and speeches, giving no indication that anything was amiss. This does not reflect well on his other achievements or his overall credibility, which until now I had held in high regard. We are still left, however, with the questions of who and why, and with which noted Western government's blessing.

Robert Lazar was the guest of Billy Goodman. ================================================================== 12/20/89 Billy Goodman Goodman: What exactly does Area S-4 mean? Lazar: I really don't know. It might be referred to as "Site" 4 -- that might be what the "S" is for, but I really don't know. There are THREE S-4's in all of the Nevada Test Site. The nuclear test site itself is a small area, and it has "sites" or "areas" 1 to 29 or 30. The S-4 there, I think, is a nuclear reactor. There's an S-4 just south of the Tonopah test range. And there's an S-4 -- the one that I worked at -- just south of Groom Lake. Goodman: Bob Lazar, while working there as a Government scientist, saw not only one but as many as nine flying saucers. And he's telling the whole world about it. He wants everybody to know that in fact there are flying saucers out there. Last time you were here, you never really told us what are their plans with these flying saucers. Do you have any idea WHY we have flying saucers at this point? Lazar: I guess it's just essentially research. The idea is to back- engineer them, to go back and find out how they can be duplicated using earthly materials and technology. 606: Is it possible these machines travel in time back and forth? Lazar: It's certainly possible. Certainly, when you create any artificial gravitational field, you technically move in your own time. So technically, you do slip forward when you create your own intense gravitational field. 606: BACK in time too? Lazar: Theoretically, that's possible. Exactly how you would do that, I don't know off the top of my head. 606: So that could be used like a time machine, right? Lazar: Essentially yeah, that is -- 606: For time travel? Lazar: -- that is possible. 606: Wow! That's really something! Lazar: Yeah, that's science-fiction-like. Fritz, Westlake, California: Billy, it is sizzling again on the West Coast. Bob Lazar, thank you very much for coming on again. You must come on. This has got to go nationwide. The cat is out of the bag. I'm sure those little gods in S-54 are listening in, and believe me, it's your best security to come on. If anything happens to you, we're all behind you, Bob Lazar -- everybody. This is like a snowball going down the hill and will become an avalanche, and ignorance will be wiped out. We've got to know the truth -- for once and forever. They are here! Let's find out why they are here and who they are and what their purpose is. Lazar: Well thank you! Fritz: Okay Bob, we're all behind you. Billy, keep that show going! It's the Number One show in America in talk shows. Goodman: Well, thank you very much Fritz. He did explain to you why we have flying saucers, right? Fritz: Well, I know why they are here. The general public has to become aware; they're just wakening up. It's like a film being lifted from their eyes. I mean, they've been laughing for forty years! Goodman: Wait a minute Fritz. You know why they're here? Why are they here, Fritz? Fritz: Well, first of all, it's a conditioning process. Goodman: Okay, you got it. Fritz: We are in a quarantine because we are so ignorant; our ignorance keeps us from meeting them. Big brother reaches out the hand and says, "Come over, little brother, let's have the cosmic connection," but we have to become a world together -- earthlings. We are about 170 nations -- 170 languages; we have to come together. When we have a spokesman, then we will meet on equal ground. Tim from Pasadena: When you looked into the saucer, how does the hatch work? How does it seal up, and what are all of the mechanics involved? Lazar: The hatch -- or whatever it was -- was completely removed; there was just an opening in the side of the craft. Tim: Did the opening have any kind of sealing around it or a lip? Lazar: I really don't remember. 'Cause I was so interested in looking inside, I didn't really catch a strong glimpse of the sealing mechanism or any other thing around it. Tim: When you were previously on Billy's show, you said you looked into one, and it was all smooth like it had been a wax casting. -- Michael Corbin - via FidoNet node 1:104/422 UUCP: !scicom!paranet!User_Name INTERNET: Michael.Corbin@p0.f422.n104.z1.FIDONET.ORG -------------------------------------------------------------------- From: paranet!p0.f422.n104.z1.FIDONET.ORG!Michael.Corbin Subject: KVEG/Lazar Transcript #2 Date: 28 Dec 89 01:23:00 GMT <...Continued from previous message> Lazar: Yeah, exactly. Tim: Now, was that the only one you looked into? Lazar: No, it was the only one I looked into. The other ones I just saw from a distance, so I don't know any detail about them. Tim: And the one you looked into, was that the "Sport Model"? Lazar: Yes, exactly. Tim: And that's the only one you saw fly as well? Lazar: Right. Tim: What was your work there? Lazar: Like I said before, it was essentially to back-engineer the propulsion and power system. Tim: So you weren't really involved in the mechanics of the craft itself? Lazar: No, not at all. Tim: But mostly just the Element 115 and all that kind of stuff you were learning about? Lazar: Right. Goodman: What is gravity? Lazar: Gravity is a wave. It's a force, essentially, just like electromagnetic waves are a different type of force. I really don't know a good way to describe gravity. Goodman: Einstein and other scientists really don't have an answer for what gravity is, do they, totally; they don't really understand it totally, do they? Lazar: No, no, not at all. In fact, I don't think we understand ANYTHING about gravity. Goodman: Why don't we just float away ourselves? What keeps us down on the planet? Lazar: That is the attractive force of gravity. Goodman: Some people say it presses down, but it doesn't, does it? Lazar: No, it doesn't. It's an attractive force. It's like, on an atomic scale, the strong and weak nuclear forces hold the atoms individually together. Goodman: Is your actual title government scientist or physicist? Lazar: You could use either one. Goodman: You are no longer a government scientist or physicist, right? Lazar: Not employed by the government. Goodman: But you are continuing in the scientific field. What do you do? Lazar: I design and build advanced radiation detection equipment, mainly alpha radiation equipment for essentially use in detecting plutonium for national laboratories. Lee Samuels: How long has that craft been on this earth? Lazar: I really don't know. I don't even know how long it's been down at S-4. Samuels: Do you know where it originally landed? Lazar: No, you got me on all that stuff. They really never keep me in as to -- Samuels: It could have been here for years? Lazar: Yeah. Or it could have been brought in in pieces from somewhere else, too. Samuels: Did you see just one craft or a number of craft? Lazar: I saw a number of them. Samuels: Did the other workers talk about it, where it came from, or more they towed in, or whatever? Lazar: I don't know. There really wasn't that much conversation between everyone. Samuels: Were you by yourself when you were investigating the craft? Lazar: Walking by myself. There were security people around me, but when I crawled underneath on the sub-floor to look at the gravity amplifiers, I got away from them. But there was no one right next to me the whole time. Samuels: Any evidence of LIVE aliens held captive? Lazar: Nothing I could put my finger on. Samuels: Then you didn't get to see any at all then in that sector? Lazar: Nothing I could put my finger on. Samuels: Did the craft have sleeping quarters for aliens? Is it like a Star Trek craft? What kind of craft is it? -- Michael Corbin - via FidoNet node 1:104/422 UUCP: !scicom!paranet!User_Name INTERNET: Michael.Corbin@p0.f422.n104.z1.FIDONET.ORG -------------------------------------------------------------------- From: paranet!p0.f422.n104.z1.FIDONET.ORG!Michael.Corbin Subject: KVEG/Lazar Transcript #3 Date: 28 Dec 89 01:26:00 GMT <...Continued from previous message> Lazar: No, it's pretty vacant inside. Granted, a couple of things were removed; they were sawed off at the base. I don't know what they were; I just saw little stumps on the ground, so I don't know what was removed. But it doesn't look like it had anything like sleeping quarters or anything like that. Samuels: Any writing you could detect or any language on the walls? Lazar: No. Samuels: Any panels, like a dashboard on a car? Lazar: Yeah. In fact, that was one of the things -- There was more than one control panel set up, but it looks like one was removed. Samuels: Were these craft all from the same source? Were they all identical? Lazar: No. Each craft was completely different in physical appearance. I didn't get to look in depth at the other craft, but I only fooled around with one. Samuels: I applaud your courage. Caller (referring to a certain book): Have you heard of him? Lazar: I think I thumbed through that book once. I think John Lear -- Caller: What the heck is an energy grid on our planet? Lazar: I don't know. I don't buy that theory or anything in that book. It's a grid outlined over the entire globe, and at each intersection there's an energy vortex of some kind. I'd rather not comment since I don't buy it. Caller: On TV you mentioned something about a time warp and a folding over. What did you mean by that? Lazar: Right. It's how gravity, whether produced artificially or naturally, distorts time and space. Caller: I read about Nicola Tesla questioning Einstein's theory of relativity. He says that energy DOESN'T come from matter. Where does it come from if it doesn't come from matter? Lazar: That's a strange question. It can be EXTRACTED from matter. But it can be extracted by other means, too. I really don't understand that [question]. Tom from Los Angeles: How can UFOs be kept secret for 40 years? Lazar: I did pose that question to some people at S-4, and the answer that I got was that it's the easiest thing TO keep secret because of the subject matter. Tom: Is that because it's tied in with a lot of parapsychology- psychic-type stuff -- National Enquirer? Lazar: Maybe so. There is so much disinformation made so available to the public via the tabloids and things like that that any true information getting out is assumed to originate from those sources. Tom: Carl Sagan is a "people" scientist; he's brought science down to the general public. What about getting him involved in this somehow? Lazar: I imagine he's fairly open-minded. I've never met him. Tom: He's one of the biggest UFO debunkers. Lazar: He's going to need his own proof, as everyone should require. It's impossible to make an absolute believer out of someone that hasn't had hands-on experience or has seen something for themselves. That's the way any scientist is going to look at it. Tom: How far is Zeta Reticuli? Lazar: I think it's around 32 light years. Tom: Do these ships travel faster than light? Lazar: It's an irrelevant question because they get around it because they're not in a linear mode of travel. Since they're distorting time and space, there's no true time reference. And since velocity is distance over time, when you begin to fool around with time, you really can't state a true velocity. Tom: Re the SETI program -- the search for radio signals -- couldn't some of these observatories or telescopes be aimed at the places where aliens supposedly come from? Lazar: RADIO waves and frequencies along that band aren't utilized; it's GRAVITY wave communication, and a radio-telescope isn't going to pick up anything of that sort. Goodman: The way you got to see this UFO was not planned by anyone wanting you to see it, right? You were walking with security and you went into a doorway. How did you describe that before? Lazar: It may have been planned by them. I had no advance warning of it. I had been brought in a separate door the whole time, and one specific time I was just led into the area where I worked -- through the hangar doors, which I had never been in before -- walked directly by the craft, and began to slow down by it, and they said, "Just keep walking; keep your eyes forward," and it was just like that. Nothing was said, and I just went and sat down in an empty room. Goodman: You went and sat down in an empty room after you saw it? Lazar: Yeah, waited for this guy that I worked with, Barry, and then we went to work on some of the work we were assigned to. Goodman: What was some of the work that you actually did? What did you actually do at S-4? When you had an assignment, what would it have been, for example? -- Michael Corbin - via FidoNet node 1:104/422 UUCP: !scicom!paranet!User_Name INTERNET: Michael.Corbin@p0.f422.n104.z1.FIDONET.ORG -------------------------------------------------------------------- From: paranet!p0.f422.n104.z1.FIDONET.ORG!Michael.Corbin Subject: KVEG/Lazar Transcript #4 Date: 28 Dec 89 01:29:00 GMT <...Continued from previous message> Lazar: Most of the time I worked there I was being briefed and being brought up to date on what had been done before. Most of the hands-on bench work was with the anti-matter reactor itself: being shown how it operated, giving demonstrations, and things of that sort. Goodman: There was practically no communication with your fellow workers? Lazar: Right. They kept that to an absolute minimum. They were on the buddy system: you always worked with someone, and that's the person you communicated with, and there was really no cross- talk between groups. Goodman: When you went there for the initial interview, you said at the time they actually had a gun at your head -- Lazar: No, that was at the security briefing. Goodman: Security, wherever that may be -- The initial interview when you went to work at S-4 I'm talking about, that's not when the gun was at your head? Lazar: No. Goodman: When you went there, what was your understanding about what you were going to be doing? Lazar: Some high-technology work, and I assumed they were talking about some sort of gravitational propulsion system. Goodman: Were you excited about that? Lazar: Oh yeah, very much so, because there was some talk about that because it was something that I was interested in, something they KNEW I was interested in, and that was the hint that I got. Goodman: And did it come to fruition? Did what you were told you were going to do actually happen? Lazar: Yeah. Goodman: For what period of time? [Goodman goes right into NEXT question.] How long were you actually there before you let people know what was going on up there? How many months or days or whatever? Lazar: Probably a couple of months. Goodman: Every time you went there you literally had to fly up, land at Groom Lake, take a bus that was blacked out at the windows -- Lazar: Right. Goodman: -- and no communication on the bus. What were you thinking as a young man. You're a very young man; let's face it. Lazar: I'm not that young. Goodman: Well, you're a very young man; I think you are. Anyway, what were you thinking? Were you just saying, well this just goes with the territory and I'm just going to go along with this? Lazar: Oh yeah, you bet! I would have done that and much more just to be involved with the project. Goodman: Ah! The excitement was just being there, being a part of what was going on behind the scenes. The secret part about it? Lazar: Oh sure. I would have taken a LOT more crap than they had dealt out. Goodman: Can you picture it? He's in his thirties, sitting on a bus, and accepting the fact, Okay, I'm going to work this morning, not talking to his compadres on the bus, is looking straight ahead, blackened-out windows, not driving on asphalt, all dirt roads. . . Didn't you ask yourself why they didn't do anything about the dirt roads? Lazar: It was a good dirt road. A lot of the roads around there are dirt, in fact almost all are. Mark in Los Angeles: Previously, you described the central column of the propulsion device as being a wave guide. There was a disk toward the bottom of this thing down near the anti-matter generator that spins. What is that disk made of -- Lazar: There's no spinning disk. Mark: What is the disk made of? Is it a capacitor? Lazar: A disk? The wave guide extends down, and it widens out and sits on the curved portion of the reactor. The bottom of the reactor is a plate, but nothing rotates or moves; it's all connected together. Mark: Is that plate a capacitor? Lazar: No. Mark: Well, what is it made of? Lazar: Metal. That's the only way I can describe it; I don't know what kind; it's [electric-] -- Mark: Did anyone determine the kind of metal it was? Lazar: Not to my knowledge. -- Michael Corbin - via FidoNet node 1:104/422 UUCP: !scicom!paranet!User_Name INTERNET: Michael.Corbin@p0.f422.n104.z1.FIDONET.ORG ********To have your comments in the next issue, send electronic mail to******** 'infopara' at the following address: UUCP {ncar,isis,boulder}!scicom!infopara DOMAIN ADMIN Address {ncar,isis,boulder}!scicom!infopara-request ******************The**End**of**Info-ParaNet**Newsletter************************
