Now I think that various groups within the halls of power / the government have been TRYING for a universal UFO/new Age religion for some time..

So, I am quarter of a way through the second Vallee book now, and it is interesting.
I will come back to you when I have finished it.
I went a head and bought Alexanders last book too, just to see where he is coming from.
Thank you for the tip :-)

Het GUT what’s your feeling on J Alexander---is he on the up and up or in with the bad guys?
I was disappointed Colonel Alexander did not provide me an opportunity to discuss Martin Cannon with him. I would very much like to hear his current thoughts on Cannon-related events.
Cannon published The Controllers: A New Hypothesis of Alien Abduction, circa 1990, in which he explored the possibility some reported abductions might actually be the results of Manchurian Candidate type covert research projects such as MKULTRA. While it is readily apparent the colonel would publicly assign no more value to such a publication than to use it as kindling to light the coals of the grill on which to hoist Martin, I am more interested in how Alexander might comment on his relationship with Cannon than what he would obviously say about the man's work.
For example... Alexander's wife, Victoria, reportedly telephoned Cannon in 1993. She allegedly informed Cannon that Alexander and Hal Puthoff were very angry at Cannon, for whatever reasons, and that Gordon Novel had been called on to handle the situation, whatever the situation and details of its handling specifically may have been considered to be.
Col. John B. Alexander, Gordon Novel, and Victoria Lacas-Alexander
Writer/researcher George P. Hansen explained he personally heard the recording left by Alexander's wife on Cannon's answering machine. Hansen wrote:
Alexander has spent some time with Novel and has flaunted the affiliation, perhaps in an attempt to intimidate others. Martin Cannon, an investigator who has written on government mind-control projects, received a call from Alexander’s wife on May 30, 1993.
She left a message on his answering machine saying: “Martin, as an ex-friend I have to warn you. John and Hal [Puthoff] are really pissed off at you. And they’ve given the matter over to Gordon [Novel] to handle. Watch out.” ...Cannon was well aware of Alexander’s interest in UFO abductions and of Novel’s background. He was quite alarmed, and the day he received the message, he called and played me the tape. I suggested that he alert a number of people in the media, and he also notified the FBI.
I would find it interesting to ask the colonel about the matter. Was he actually pissed? If so, why?

One aspect that was mentioned way back is that there were a bunch of crazy Christian fundamentalists with high ranks in the US military. They supposedly believe UFOs are demons and so wanted AATIP closed down.
But what if they weren't really crazy or believe in demons and Greek Gods? What if the old guard at the Pentagon have slowly slipped into retirement and the old boy networks have finally broken down?
The unaccounted for billions are being closely scrutinized. Especially since the Trump Administration came to power.
A career as a 'defence contractor' raking in $$$ in government grants means producing something useful and cost effective not wasting money studying your pet theories and hobbies. The track record of 'old gang' is no longer seen as providing a useful service. Perhaps they've all been told they are being 'let go'. No more funding for the weird stuff.

Unfortunately while the supply of snake oil is probably unlimited the demand is almost certainly finite. Greer's market share is under threat from this new project. In both cases the aliens seemed to have been framed.
