I applaud Greeneyedleo's excellent decision to direct discussion of the Escamilla / Walson hoax back into this original thread.
I am offering this "catch up" report for the convenience & interest of members who jump to this point in this complex discussion without availing
themselves of the relevant facts due to the large amount of information that must be worked through.
Maybe...maybe not "Catch up" Report:
Escamilla is a serial hoaxer who suppports the likes of Walson, Kruse, etc... He is becoming so desperate to maintain the charade that he purports to
be his "work", he is trying to shut down all discussion & debate to the point where it is reported he is now making death threats against people who
are exposing his "work".
Walson himself is a serial hoaxer, whose hoaxes are indicative of the relentlessly extremely poor quality material proferred by Escamilla.
You'll also find that Escamilla is trying to promote this video by all possible avenues that don't incur costs, such as your
of the film here on ATS.
You'll find this is the case because Escamilla lost his financial support for this film, when $300K was "pulled" because the financiers came to
understand the extremely poor quality of the material in Escamilla's movie.
The "straw that broke the camel's back" was Escamilla's totally disingenuous support of the serial pest, the appalling Alison Kruse.
Here is the ATS thread wherein the Walson material was consigned to the hoax bin.
**HOAX** Found New Video- large Space Objects: F.A.S.T. **HOAX**
Here are Springer’s summary comments pertaining to Walson:
Springer's Comments On Walson:
This thread contains videos of what has been defined as satelites and stars being presented as huge "interstellar space craft" by using slow
shutter speeds and moving the tripod holding the out of focus video camera.
The author, now banned from AboveTopSecret.com for hoaxing, has been asked several times to provide pristine exif data, present a fast shutter
speed image taken seconds before or after capturing the "ships" or provide a clearer image of a known object as has been done by more than one
of our members who have the same grade of telescope as the hoaxer.
Needless to say none of these things were provided and the author decried the request as an attempt to "control" him and stated he was leaving ATS
forever, just like 99% of all hoaxers usually do when they are caught.
I note the most significant promoter of Walson was Escamilla, the well known hoaxer who supports such high profile & ridiculous hoaxes such as…..
The Dishonesty & Danger Inherent In The seeingUFOsPA Hoax
And his own “rods” hoax…..
Should ”Rods” Threads Be Consigned To The Hoax Forum?
Here is a link to “Alien Casebook” wherein they summarise the Walson hoax.
You'll also find Escamilla is tangled up in the Maussan world of appalling hoaxes.
The Jaime Maussan Metepec Creature Confirmed as a Hoax
I also note the name that is "front & centre" of the video promotion, being none other then David Icke!
David Icke…..Ufology’s Worst Ambassador
Please let me know if you require further info regarding Walson, Escamilla, Icke, Kruse, etc...
