I was under no such assumption that John Lear and Bob Lazar are in any way a team or combo. But their names do tend to come up in tandem a lot around here. Thus why I mentioned them at the same time

Hi George,

Big fan on C2C!

My question is about Ted Phillips - have you ever interviewed him? He is known for Marley Wood's but my question is about Project Moonshaft which a purported UFO is buried in the ground somewhere in Slovakia discovered during World War II. Heard Ted talk about it years ago but have never heard any update on it.

Do you have any additional information on Project Moonshaft?

Thanks for your time,

George W

For three decades, I have been a working journalist in America's most interesting (and arguably most corrupt) city. As with old buildings and whores, if you stick around long enough, you become somewhat respectable, and to my utter amazement, I have become the one of the most recognizable and most honored journalist in this wild and wacky state.

Amazing introduction.

GeorgeKnapp what is the most compelling evidence you have directly seen that convinces you of "forces beyond our control". Likewise if you have not, what is the closest you've seen.

Hello and welcome to ATS George,
Are you aware of any accessible locations you can get a glimpse of the "super-natural"?

Also is there anything you want the public to know of or planned to release that you haven't and could do here at ATS

I addressed the current state of the ranch in response to another query so would refer you to that spot.

I have visited the property quite a few times, spent about a dozen weekends up there, slept in the NIDS trailer, sat in the darkness for hour upon hour waiting for something to happen but never saw anything too dramatic, nothing that I would consider to be in the paranormal realm.

The stuff that still gives me the heebie jeebies are the stories we heard from residents, events which are closer to poltergeist type activity than anything we might consider ET. Small things, such as the wife goes to the store, buys a few weeks worth of groceries, unpacks the food and puts it into the cupboards, walks out of the room for a few seconds and returns to find all the groceries back in the bags....that gets to me. The dark shapes hovering outside their windows, then eventually standing at the foot of their beds--the strange language being uttered by unseen beings from what sounded like a few feet above their heads, the invisible creatures that walked thru pools of water causing ripples, or which walked thru herds of cattle causing them to scatter---all very weird.

Of all the events witnessed by the NIDS scientists, the one about the dinosaur creature being shot out of the tree stands out because, whatever the thing was, it fell after being shot and left a footprint...make that a claw the snow on the ground around the tree. The scientists also saw a ball of light that stretched into a tunnel of light and watched in horror as a tall dark creature, maybe 8 feet tall, wriggled thru the tunnel then climbed out and started running up the hill toward Skinwalker ridge. That's spooky stuff.

I do not think there will ever be disclosure, not by the US government anyway. They have lied far too many times, both to the public and to Congress, have misappropriated too many millions of dollars to keep the lie going, to ever come clean. If they were t o disclose even a little bit of it, I think a lot of people would go to prison.

I also think it would not make political sense to disclose. Any president who acknowledged this reality would be overwhelmed with followup questions. He/she would be accused of distracting attention away from other pressing problems. There is no such thing as partial disclosure. They couldn't tell us that ET's are real and leave it at that. People would demand to know more, and I think the administration would be paralyzed.

I also think there may be legitimate reasons for not disclosing. For one thing, disclose what? We assume the govt. knows more about UFOs than the general public, but that might not be true. It could be that no one really understands the big picture, and the parts that we do understand are profoundly disturbing. Plus, there are serious national security issues involved, and I could understand why some military adviser would argue that it is not in our interests to alert potential adversaries to the fact that we have the technology in hand.

At most, there would be a very small group of people who would know the essence of what is going on--something like this would be the most highly compartmentalized info in the entire government. I think there is a good chance it has been taken out of the realm of government, and whatever secrets or technology or wreckage that exist are more likely in private or corporate hands by now, which makes it even harder for investigators to get at the truth.

What if that small group of people in the know has heard something so terrible, so profoundly disturbing that it really would cause disruption of social institutions? I am a right-to-know guy and believe that whatever info exists, the public deserves to know, regardless of the consequences....but I still find myself asking---what if the truth is really bad, something akin to us being a fast food factory for some other beings, a stopover for yummy snacks, or a supplier of souls?

If disclosure happens--and that's a big IF--it will have to come from the visitors themselves and in a form that is indisputable. "They" are, after all, the true architects of the coverup. it starts with them. They could make their presence known if they wanted to, but they don't. it would be interesting to know what their reasons are.

That was the best and most complete answer I have ever read on the disclosure topic, very nice.

Hello and welcome George.
While the ufo stuff is interesting I have a more down to earth question.

Having lived in Vegas a short time I watched your or one of your investigations into the plight of the wild horses.
Has any headway been gained to stop the round-ups? and more into the leasing of the grasslands in I think Wyoming and Colorado from ranchers for millions of dollars to house these horses? Has to be some back scratching going on there.

If I recall it seemed to me it was all about the cattle barons that wanted the land and water.

Watching the investigation and show you put out was really appalling.

I'm a huge fan of yours and just wanted to say it's a pleasure to have you. Always looked forward to Sundays on coast with GK.

I've my share of anomalous phenomena in the clear night sky lately.

No. I think that is a real stretch.
I don't think Americans will ever give up their guns. Proponents couldn't even achieve stricter background checks, so anyone who tries to confiscate guns had better bring plenty of firepower with them because it would be a bloody and prolonged mess, which is why I don't think anything like that will ever be attempted.

Hi George, thanks for being here and I just wondered if you had any thoughts on the role of the Office of Naval Intelligence in official UFO research (despite the U.S. Navy never releasing any UFO documents) or the fact that the U.S. Government denies taking any interest whatsoever in the UFO subject since 1969 despite there existing official documents which clearly show they do.

I've been a member for a couple of years and check in on a semi-regular basis, though, to be honest, I have so little time to devote to fun stuff. My pal Springer collaborated with me a couple of years ago on a special we produced for ATS about wild horses and the connection to the BP mess. I think it is probably still up on the site somewhere. Before that, I put together a considerable online piece about Phil Corso in which I shared the first-ever videotaped interviews with the colonel. I believe that should also still be viewable too.

I do not get to check in as often as I would like but I do check out ATS stuff now and then, especially when I see something of interest on the twitter feed. Like you, I get tweets form ATS pretty much every day.

Hi George and welcome. (I'm not actually replying to anything) just that I need to use the reply button to be able to post at this time.
Have you any thoughts about the Cash-Landrum incident given the similarity of the observed craft with the Rendlesham, (England) craft, and where the two events were just a day apart? I don't mean the subsequent use/abuse of the law, but is there any other case that comes close to these two incidents that you might know of?

Welcome to ATS George!...

Have you had the opportunity to read Greg Valdez's new book "Dulce Base"? How do you feel about his well thought-out and well researched ideas regarding animal mutilations being government projects, as well as his ideas on the Dulce Base "alien" stories?

posted on Sep, 17 2013 @ 05:21 PM
Dear Mr. Knapp, Thank you for taking the time to make yourself available to us at ATS! Have always followed your stories on many t.v. broadcasts.

Question: 1.) What is your current opinion (function, purpose) on Area 51 (which has now been formerly acknowledged by the gov't) and,

1A.) that its activities along with the suspicion that the mission of Area 51 and all of its secret black projects and ET (based upon your investigative research) activities have actually been moved to a new location? Perhaps Utah or Colorado?

Thanks very much!!

Hi george, welcome to ATS! You are by far my favorite C2C host, and I try to listen every time you're on. I wish I could think of all the questions I've had for you over the years, but I'll have to start with this one:

I just saw you on a Travel Channel show in a segment about an alleged UFO crash in Russia, where there were supposedly samples of metal from the UFO itself recovered, and sitting in a museum!

Having heard just about every UFO story there is, and read numerous books, I was flaberghasted that this was one had never even appeared on my radar. I actually thought about starting a thread about it here if I could get more information.

Could you expound on the nature of this metal, and why is it not being made into a bigger deal than it is? It seems that this could be the smoking gun, and yet it's just sitting there on display. This seems surreal to me, at best.

Thank you for your time.

Thank you for your answer Mr. Knapp. I've recently listened to your 2006 C2CAM interview at least three times over the past two days. Once on my own, than with a friend and once again on my own during work. It's quite fascinating.

Again, thank you for your answer.
