Arcade Fire - Chemtrails, 9/11 & Other Oddities

I have uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel entitled "Arcade Fire - Chemtrails, 9/11 & Other Oddities" -

There is a lot of information in this video that has not really received any attention anywhere. I felt it was time to try and correct that oversight. Some of the information (particularly the embedded "code" in Arcade Fire's video "Signs of Life") is quite staggering and I'm surprised I haven't heard it being discussed in alternative knowledge research circles. Please check out the video, share it far and wide, give it a "thumbs-up", etc., if you want to.

Star Trek & 9/11 - The Ellison Family Connection

Talk about making the most of your time! I am currently researching and writing three factual, alternative knowledge books!! The gathered material I am sizeably basing these three books on was originally meant for one book… but when I figured out how big the book would be (especially as I am still gathering and assembling yet more research!) I had a rethink. I don’t want to end up with something akin to “The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick” and I wouldn’t even try to achieve that kind of feat! Obviously, I am trying to post things here on the blog and my Facebook page whenever I can, but the book research and writing is very time intensive and consuming. Once I get into my writing “groove”, I try to stay there as long as I can and not get distracted as it allows me to get a lot done. That said, I had to take a break to bring something to your attention that piqued my curiosity greatly. The following is an article I have put together from research I have been looking at in the last few days. Although it will be looked at in far more detail in at least one of the aforementioned books, I had to flag this as it may have provided me with some answers to a few questions that I left unsatisfactorily unanswered in my “Science Fiction and the Hidden Global Agenda” books. I hope some of you find this revealing.

Star Trek & 9/11 – The Ellison Family Connection
In my “Science Fiction and the Hidden Global Agenda” books, and in various articles, videos and talks, I have dissected the hugely popular science fiction television and film franchise “Star Trek”. I have evidentially demonstrated a myriad of connections between the franchise and the likes of the RAND Corporation, Boeing, Lockheed, Stanford Research Institute, the U.S. Department of Defense, NASA, JPL, the NSA, the CIA and so on. I have also documented how 9/11 seems to repeatedly synchronise with “Star Trek”. 9/11 and the post-9/11 world was somewhat thematically foreshadowed in the television series “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” – a couple of years before 9/11 even happened. Post-9/11, the entire third season “Xindi” story-arc of “Star Trek: Enterprise” was based on 9/11 and the post-9/11, “War on Terror” climate. Nowhere was the connection with 9/11 more apparent than in J.J. Abrams’ 2013 movie “Star Trek: Into Darkness”. Anything attached to J.J. Abrams should sound some concerning alarm bells for people. I have covered this matter at length in part 2 of my recent presentation “Disney Darkside”. See: Disney Darkside 2/2 (Carl James@Truth Juice B'ham - 14/2/17) -


In my 2016 edition of “Science Fiction and the Hidden Global Agenda” – Volume One, I had to leave a dangling question about the possible motives and agendas behind the making of “Star Trek: Into Darkness”. In the book, I demonstrate how the film was a reinforcement of the official narrative of 9/11. I was a little perplexed as to what happened to a reference to 9/11 in the closing credits of the film. Here is a short section from my book: “A dedication “to the post 9/11 veterans” was included in the closing credits of the cinematic release of the film. Curiously, since the release of the first edition of this book, it has come to my attention that the dedication “to the post 9/11 veterans” has been removed from the closing credits of the European DVD and Blu-ray releases, as well as from those versions aired on UK television. We really should ask the question why? I have yet to confirm if the dedication remains in any DVD / Blu-ray releases of the film sold outside of the European coding region.” I have yet to clear this matter up to my satisfaction. However, the revelations later in this article may provide a possible answer.

Further in my book, I wrote: “On the subject of the film’s closing credits (and as a substantial connection between the film and the 9/11 / free energy technology cover-up), the producers of the film used the credits to thank “Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, Operated by Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC, for the US Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration” – who were consulted (in what capacity I am unsure) during production of the film.” I raised this subject again in my recent “Disney Darkside” presentation: “Although it is known that Livermore Labs and the Department of Energy were extensively consulted for the film, it is not known why they were involved. Given that the film is a blitz of 9/11 propaganda (reinforcing the “official” narrative of those events), we should also note the existence and use of directed free-energy technology on 9/11 (as exposed by Dr Judy Wood in her book “Where Did the Towers Go?”).  In this regard, we are once again back in the territory of energy. J.J. Abrams and his associates have repeatedly returned to the subject of energy (in one form or another) throughout their careers.”

Star Trek has often synchronised 9/11 to the directed free-energy technology / weaponry used on 9/11. The aforementioned “Xindi” story arc in “Enterprise” is triggered when a directed free-energy weapon is utilised to destroy a huge chunk of the eastern coast mainland of America. Then there is Robert Picardo’s (who portrayed the EMH Doctor in “Star Trek: Voyager”) multi-faceted involvement with the NASA/JPL outfit “The Planetary Society”. Picardo has served on the advisory board of The Planetary Society for approximately two decades. The Planetary Society is (by its own admission) sponsored by the likes of Underwriters Laboratories. This provides a significant connection between the Star Trek franchise and the 9/11 cover up - given the connections between Underwriters Labs, NIST and the 9/11 cover story. Dr Judy Wood (author of "Where Did the Towers Go - Evidence of Directed Free-Energy Technology on 9/11") has extensively documented her Request for Correction (RFC) to the NIST WTC reports and her Qui Tam cases verses a number of defendants including Underwriters Laboratories.

But back to “Star Trek: Into Darkness”. The film’s co-writer, producer, and director J.J. Abrams is (as I demonstrated in the aforementioned “Disney Darkside” presentation) quite fixated with the themes of energy and consciousness in his media output. He has also collaborated extensively with the likes of the U.S. DoD, the CIA, NASA, the United Nations and the Department of Energy on his television and film projects. Note also that the Department of Energy and the DoE-funded Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (both credited as collaborating on the production of “Into Darkness”) have worked with every branch of the military industrial complex on the likes of so-called "psychic warfare", mind control, and free-energy technology development... and the suppression of it, for that matter. Although you can read between the lines (based on all the aforementioned) as to why these entities were involved with “Star Trek: Into Darkness”, I was never able to evidentially demonstrate who got them involved and why… until now. As is often the case with such things, the evidence was staring me in the face all along. It was in the public domain all along and I somehow failed to notice it.

My discovery was prompted by some recent additional research into the Kathryn Bigelow-directed film “Zero Dark Thirty” – which was presented as a depiction of the “true story” (which in itself is a wholly false narrative) of a military assault on the compound where we were told “Osama bin Laden” was “killed”. Interestingly, the villainous “Khan” character into “Star Trek: Into Darkness” was described by several people involved with that film as a “Bin Laden-type character”. You will see why I have highlighted this synchronicity as I go on. “Zero Dark Thirty” shows how torture was used by the CIA to “obtain intelligence” about “Bin Laden”. It has now been evidentially documented that the CIA were involved with the production of “Zero Dark Thirty” – despite their repeated denials that they were ever involved with the project. Additionally, Kathryn Bigelow received classified documents from The Pentagon (not even privy to members of the US Congress) to help with production of the film. The extensive use of military equipment and assets was also procured for the film - which must have been cleared by the military given the narrative and themes of the film. Remember that Kathryn Bigelow also directed “The Hurt Locker” which was a classic example of a Hollywood film serving as a recruitment/propaganda film for the US military.

David L. Robb’s excellent book “Operation Hollywood” demonstrates how many films and television productions have received Pentagon / DOD support in exchange for their input in the writing / rewriting of scripts. Although this is usually done to allow the military to create positive portrayals of the institution and encourage recruitment uptake, it is also done to allow the military to “white-wash” the less-than-favourable aspects of military history (“Black Hawk Down” is a good example of this) and maintain the façade of certain psyops and cover-ups that have involved the military / industrial / complex. The CIA have precisely the same arrangement with various Hollywood film and television productions for precisely the same reasons. It appears that the same situation is also true of the likes of the FBI, NSA, NASA, United Nations and, for that matter, the Department of Energy. With regard to the latter, it would explain why the DoE and LLNL were involved with “Star Trek: Into Darkness” – a film that maintains the mainstream illusion (at least thematically) of the “official” narrative of 9/11 and simultaneously muddles and redirects attention away from the true nature of the directed free-energy technology on 9/11 cover-up.

Now we unravel more deeply! “Zero Dark Thirty” was co-produced by Annapurna Pictures. Annapurna Pictures was founded in April 2011 by Margaret Elizabeth "Megan" Ellison. Megan Ellison is the sister of David Ellison who is also a bit, big hitter in the Hollywood industry – he is a notable film producer, close associate of J.J. Abrams and the founder and CEO of Skydance Media. Skydance is responsible for producing (amongst others) the following feature-length films Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (both co-produced by J.J. Abrams and both assisted in production by the CIA), G.I. Joe: Retaliation, World War Z, Terminator Genisys, Jack Reacher, and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (all Pentagon / DOD associated), and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (DOD & CIA associated). They are also currently producing Top Gun: Maverick. This film, like the first Top Gun film, involves (multiple DOD / CIA collaborator) Jerry Bruckheimer and, I’ve no doubt, will (like Top Gun) almost certainly receive full DOD / Pentagon support. The short and long of it is that almost every production that has come out of Skydance Media has received DOD and / or CIA support.

And now for drumroll… are you ready? Skydance Media also produced… wait for it… Star Trek: Into Darkness AND, for that matter, Star Trek: Beyond!

But it doesn’t end there. Megan and David Ellison are the son and daughter (respectively) of Larry Ellison. It appears that all the opportunities that Megan and David have had in their lives in establishing their positions (both connectively and financially) in the Hollywood industry have been thanks to the position, wealth and power of their father. Larry Ellison is a businessman, entrepreneur, and philanthropist who, according to numerous sources, is now listed as the fifth-wealthiest person in America and the seventh-wealthiest in the world – worth over $60 billion. Larry Ellison gained his wealth by co-founding (and serving as the CEO) of the Oracle (interesting name!) Corporation. His corporation began life in a rather telling manner. In the 1970s, Larry Ellison worked for Ampex Corporation where he was tasked with creating a database for the CIA – which he named “Oracle”. His Oracle Corporation grew out of this project. The following is taken from a 2014 Business Insider article by Julie Bort entitled “Larry Ellison Is A Billionaire Today Thanks To The CIA”: “The CIA was the customer that launched Oracle, cofounder Larry Ellison said on stage Sunday night during the opening keynote for the company's massive customer conference in San Francisco. "Our very first customer was the Central Intelligence Agency," he said.” Historically, Oracle has had many dealings with the likes of the CIA and The Pentagon. Are we seeing a pattern in the Ellison family?

To bring this piece to a conclusion, I want to briefly touch on 9/11 again. Thanks to Larry Ellison, Oracle seems to have played a substantial role in the 9/11 cover-up as well. Soon after the events at The Pentagon on 9/11, Larry Ellison had allegedly “already made arrangements with the army for more than two hundred staff from the damaged Pentagon to be accommodated in Oracle's Washington offices. A secure Special Response Center had been quickly established to provide support for government agencies needing security-cleared communications channels. Ellison said that in New York a similar effort was under way, including the creation of an "emergency office locator" to help identify the temporary office locations of thousands of displaced workers.” (Quote taken from “Softwar: An Intimate Portrait of Larry Ellison and Oracle” by Matthew Symonds, pg. 402)

It has also been claimed that Todd Beamer, a 32 year old account manager at Ellison's Oracle Corporation in New Jersey, was an “alleged” passenger on Flight 93 on 9/11. Beamer was forever connected with the 9/11 cover story via the propaganda movie “United 93” as the “passenger” who (according to “official” sources and narrative) said “Let’s Roll” and then joined others in proceeding to overpower the alleged hijackers. Of course, there are so many flaws in the Flight 93 “narrative”, I wouldn’t know where to begin here. I suggest you gain a clearer perspective by looking at some of the research of Andrew Johnson and Mark Conlon. Links to some of the research into the “planes” on 9/11 subject are included in my previous article “The Truth About 9/11” -

So there you have it. By no means am I saying that the Ellison family are the ones we should hold exclusively to account for the subversive (in a negative sense) content and agendas of the aforementioned Hollywood films. They are only a part of a chain of entities that are steering and influencing these films. But, if nothing else, this article should give a little insight into the processes that are at work.  There is no such thing as a coincidence or harmless association when we read “thanks to…” in the end credits of a film – at least not when those being thanked have very clear and documented military, political, historical and social agendas. Like the sunglasses motif in the film “They Live” or the lines of code in “The Matrix”, it really is time to recognise the media for what it is. Stop treating it like it is good, harmless, all smiles and sunshine, friendly and helpful, and on your side. It may not have been all bad at one time, but today it pretty much stinks rotten and isn’t worthy of anybody’s time or attention. My advice is now, always try and ignore it whenever you can. If you do notice it, whenever it waves its glittery arms all over the place – screaming for your attention, learn to see it for what it is.

Until next time!

The Truth About 9/11

Around this time every year, I try to post a little something about the subject of 9/11. Today is the 16th (an inverted 91!) anniversary of the events of that tragic day in 2001. Despite the fact that many people have now awoken to (or are in the process of awakening to) the truth about what really happened on that day, there are still many people who maintain that 9/11 took place exactly as the mainstream media narrative dictated. There are also people who have always had questions about the events of 9/11 and have looked around the internet and “tripped over” the various limited-hangouts that exist purely to mislead people who are curious about the truth of 9/11. Some of these latter folk have stalled their curiosity by falling for the notion of bombs being planted in the WTC (and several surrounding) buildings before 9/11. Others fall for the idea of the use of thermite or even “mini-nukes” on 9/11. Such notions are based on a myriad of unsupported theories and endless speculation. This limited-hangout perspective of the events of 9/11 creates a conclusion in certain minds that, whilst being “very fishy”, the idea of the events of 9/11 being anything other than what the official narrative tells us has no real solid evidence. It’s all just another “conspiracy theory” from the “tin-foil hat wearing brigade”!

I can tell you here and now that this conclusion couldn’t be further from the truth. Although I have been researching 9/11 since (pretty much) the day it happened, it wasn’t until roughly eight years ago that I discovered the ground-breaking research of Dr Judy Wood. For those of you unfamiliar with Dr Judy Wood, here is an overview of her credentials taken from the website “Where Did the Towers Go”: “Dr. Judy D. Wood is a former professor of mechanical engineering with research interests in experimental stress analysis, structural mechanics, optical methods, deformation analysis, and the materials characterization of biomaterials and composite materials. She is a member of the Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM), co-founded SEM’s Biological Systems and Materials Division, and has served on the SEM Composite Materials Technical Division. Dr. Wood received her B.S. (Civil Engineering, 1981) (Structural Engineering), M.S. Engineering Mechanics (Applied Physics), 1983), and Ph.D. (Materials Engineering Science, 1992).”

I cannot stress how important it is for people to go away and study the evidence that has been gathered by Dr Judy Wood. There is no way I could do justice to the evidence, that this lady has presented in her book “Where Did the Towers Go?” - a few sentences here or even a lengthy article wouldn’t begin to scratch the surface. In a nutshell, Dr Judy Wood’s data evidentially demonstrates conclusively that the Twin Towers of the WTC complex did not collapse or blow-up. Quite simply, they sizeably turned to dust in mid-air. Dr Judy Wood’s data also demonstrates that this process was not caused by impacting “jet liners” and the like. Rather, the destruction of the Twins Towers (and seemingly multiple surrounding buildings in the WTC complex area) was caused by a weapon of directed free-energy technology. Sounds almost difficult to believe doesn’t it!? Unfortunately, this is the reality of what happened on 9/11 and the overwhelming and demonstrable evidence collated by Dr Judy Wood is the proof of this.

The implications of the use of this type of technology in use on 9/11 is staggering. Not only does it evidentially prove that the world was wholly lied to about what really happened on 9/11 (and, for that matter, every single day ever since 9/11), but it also demonstrates that there are free-energy technologies in existence that (whilst offering a very real and practical way out of the economic and scientific prisons that the masses of the world are currently trapped in) have been perverted into usage as devastating weapons of destruction capable of killing countless people and potentially destroying vast areas of landscape.

There is also another aspect of the technology used on 9/11 with serious implications – that of the bizarre behaviour of Hurricane Erin, that was due to make landfall in New York on the morning of 9/11. Just before 9/11 took place, Hurricane Erin seemingly defied the laws of nature by making an abrupt right-turn on itself and headed straight back out into the Atlantic Ocean. How convenient for what was to subsequently take place! However, I don’t believe in coincidences on this scale! Dr Judy Wood’s evidence shows that Hurricane Erin was either a component aspect of the directed free-energy technological mechanism that occurred on 9/11 or, at the very least, was affected by the process. It seems a little bizarre that, on the anniversary of 9/11, the east coast of American has been battered by seemingly multiple hurricanes. Even the most sceptical of my friends and colleagues have voiced the concern that there is something really odd going on in the US with these weather phenomenon – although many of them have blindly and naively dismissed the oddities as “probably climate change” (my rebuttal to this will have to be a subject for another time!) If, as the evidence demonstrates, directed free-energy technology can affect huge hurricanes, it is not outside the realms of possibility that something has been manipulating the current weather phenomenon in the US. Some food for thought…

With the anniversary of 9/11 once again here, it is always vital that we do not blindly accept the mainstream version of these kinds of historically tragedies. I’m sure (although the current weather phenomenon may take attention away from it somewhat) that there will be several documentaries aired on the mainstream media this week to “remind” people of, and reinforce, the “official” narrative of 9/11. No doubt, the mainstream news media will also give 9/11 a few mentions for the same reasons. If you are curious about, or have an interest in, the events of 9/11, I would suggest that this year you try something a little different. Give the mainstream “official” version of 9/11 a miss and have a look at the truth instead. It could very well completely change your perspectives on a great many subjects.

Below, I have listed links to a wealth of material that discusses the evidence of what really happened on 9/11. If this is all new to you, you might want to fasten your proverbial “seat belt” as it can be an uncomfortable ride. Far be it from me to compare anybody to a horse, but it is apt to use an old adage in this regard: “you can take a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink!” Whilst it may be uncomfortable to see and hear the truth about 9/11, the rewards are infinite. We should always be prepared to ask tough questions about our own world views and perspectives. Yes, it is never comfortable when we realise we have been led down the so-called “garden path” and lied to repeatedly. Pride sometimes kicks in and can breed denial as a means to avoid admitting that we’ve taken for a “mug”! However, we should never be ashamed to admit that we don’t always know what we think we know or, perish the thought, that we might be wrong about something. As a species, our greatest strength can be in learning from our mistakes. In fact, admitting such things allows for growth and makes us more well-rounded human beings. It opens us up to greater possibilities and other avenues in our lives. It enriches us and helps to free us from any shackles we have, or allow to be, imposed upon us. It might be trite or clichéd to some, but it really is the case that “the truth can set you free.”

Good Vibrations Podcast #113 - Carl James - The London 2012 Olympics Revisited

I recently had the privilege of being interviewed by Mark Devlin for a return visit to his excellent Good Vibrations Podcast series. Here is an overview of the interview from Mark’s website:
“In the months leading up to London's hosting of the 2012 Olympic games, many alternative researchers were speculating on whether the event was to be used to launch another society-changing false-flag "terror" event, of the type we have seen so often since. Thankfully, nothing of that nature did occur. But today's returning guest, author Carl James, argues that a massive mind-control psy-op was, in fact, perpetrated on the public through the ritualistic and symbolic aspects of the opening and closing ceremonies. His contention forms the basis of his new book, 'What Really Happened at the London 2012 Olympics,' and he guests on Volume 113 to share his findings. Aspects discussed include the predictions of the late Rik Clay, the role of Russell Brand, connections to the Live 8 and 7/7 events of 2005, and Predictive Programming contained in Dr. Who.”
The interview can be listened to at the link below:

Facebook & August 2017 Updates

Those who know me well will attest that I’m not a big fan of social networking! I do wonder when human civilisation suddenly realised that it had become necessary to articulate every waking thought in our heads to anybody who will listen. I always laboured under the illusion that everybody who uses platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram act in such a manner. Whilst that is actually true for a considerable number of people on social networking websites, I had something of a pleasant surprise recently when I finally decided to sign up to Facebook.

My decision to add my presence to Facebook was prompted by some words of wisdom shared with me by several of my trusted fellow alternative knowledge researchers. Like me, they are well aware that Facebook is sizeably little more than a vast data collection archive for the likes of Western Intelligence agencies (a evidentially documented fact just in case there are any naysayers out there who believe otherwise!) and a testbed for all manner of social engineering projects orchestrated by the various hands of the global agenda elite players who control and steer most of what goes on around us on a day-to-day basis. All that aside, it makes sense not to shun the likes of Facebook on those grounds alone. If we are mindful of the trite and trivial debris that floats almost luminously around the ether of Facebook, we can also recognise a lot of good things. I have now realise that there are many people on Facebook who use the platform to share insightful knowledge to those who perhaps lived blissfully unaware of certain truths beforehand. Others use it to organise social activism, to try to prevent injustices, to inform people about events and platforms that work to gather and better educate those looking to understand what this vast uncertain sea that we call “life” is perhaps really all about.

As somebody who tries very hard to raise awareness about various truths and share knowledge with others, I recognise that it is important to spread the word as far and wide as possible. In this day and age, the internet appears to be the principle way to share useful information. Yet, it has recently come to my attention that, for some people, the internet IS Facebook and little else. Many people no longer spend hour after long hour trawling through thousands of webpages, reading long articles (or, heaven forbid, a book!), or patiently watching an informative but lengthy video to the very end. Our new age is one of fast and instant bite-sized nuggets of info… many people no longer have the stomach or the patience for anything else. If so, I’d better draw my thoughts to a close now for fear of going on too long!

In brief, I have joined Facebook!

All that I share here and elsewhere on the internet, I will now share on my Facebook page as well. If anybody wishes to seek me out there and add me as a friend and such, the link to page is below. Please note that I am still something of a Facebook Luddite! It is taking me time to figure things out! I also don’t have access (as many people do) to Facebook via my phone (another aspect of my Luddite-esque nature!) only via my PC. I will check in a few times a week to post material and check messages and such. I don’t imagine I will be present for long stretches each day like many users. That said, I do appreciate anybody taking the time to follow my work and research and for sharing it with others. Understanding the true nature of our reality begins with knowledge, so it is always vital that we share it any way we can.

August 2017 Updates

The last month or so has seen some big changes in my life. I don’t want to get into too much detail here, but personal circumstances have steered me toward a new journey in my life. A week ago, I waved a thoughtful goodbye to my working life of over twenty years in the healthcare profession. I am in the very fortunate position of being able to remove myself from the mainstream “work” paradigm – at least for a while anyway. As of now, I am dedicating a large portion of my time to alternative knowledge research, writing, interviews and talks. In the last week alone, I have taken part in two interviews – one with Mark Devlin for his Good Vibrations podcast and the other with Taj and Nyssa of The Divine Truth / Revolution Radio show. Both will be available to listen to shortly and I will post the links and relevant information here as soon as that information is accessible. I am currently getting to work on writing several new books. It is a little early to reveal too much about these books, but I can say that one of them will be my first venture into fictional writing! Watch this space…

I have done a number of presentations around the UK in the last few months. I just want to take this opportunity to thank those of you who managed to attend and spread the word about those events. Your support is truly appreciated. Also, once again, a big thank you to those who came to the High Wycombe Paranormal Group – Menna, Neil, Taj, Ben, the list goes on. Special thanks to Menna and Andrew Johnson for making it all possible. A huge thank you also to Kirsty from the Truth Juice Hull group – not only for making me so welcome in Hull but also for her ongoing efforts to promote and share so much of the work I have accumulated over the last 12 months. A big thank you also to my friend Jan – my faithful train-travelling companion on the journey to and from Hull! I must note that we managed to raise £165.46 for the Hull Samaritans on the night of my talk at Hull. A job well-done!

As always, my heartfelt appreciation and positive energies go out to each and every one of you who has supported and continues to support all my efforts and work. I couldn’t do it without you! It never to ceases to amaze me that there really are so many positive and caring people in this thing we call “life”. Imagine what could be achieved if everybody else adopted this, oh so simple to grasp, attitude. Some food for thought…!

Until next time!

Disney Darkside - Truth Juice Hull - 12/07/17

I will be presenting my most recent talk - "Disney Darkside" - at the Truth Juice Hull group on Wednesday 12th July, 2017. The talk will begin at approx. 7.30pm. The venue address is The Walton Street Club, Walton Street, HULL, HU3 6JR. Admission costs and details are as follows: £5 Waged/ £3 Un-Waged / Donation / or whatever you can manage even if that is nothing. Truth Juice Hull is NON-PROFIT making and the venue is FREE. Lack of money will never be an issue with attending the talks. For more details, visit: or email

For those of you interested in coming along, here is an overview of the talk.
"Disney is synonymous with wholesome values, memorable stories and films that will put a smile on the faces of all the family. But is there something far more sinister lurking beneath the surface of the “House of Mouse”? In this presentation, alternative knowledge researcher and author of the book “Science Fiction and the Hidden Global Agenda” will examine the long-known “dark side” of Disney – looking at its documented relationship with the military / industrial complex, and their use of embedded sexual and arcane symbolism, social engineering and fragmentation, alleged mind control programming, and so on. Carl will also recount how his research brought him into contact with a prominent Disney insider and how this contact set him off on an even darker investigation – one that involves the likes of J.J. Abrams, Star Wars, Saturn worship, energy, consciousness, transformation, and the very nature of reality. In asking the question – what are Disney really up to? – Carl may have uncovered a startling answer with implications for all of humanity."

If you are able to post details about this talk / event on your social media feed or website, I would really appreciate it. I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to everybody who made me feel so welcome during my recent visit to the High Wycombe Paranormal Meet-Up Group. I had a great time and met some truly intelligent, interesting and lovely people during my presentation and the overall stay. A special thank you also to Andrew Johnson, Menna (and her family!) and Neil - the organiser of the Paranormal Meet-Up Group.

Many thanks again for all your continued support and I hope to see you at Truth Juice Hull!

Doctor Who - Themes & Symbolism - From 7/7 to Saturn Worship

Hi folks!
I have uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel entitled: "Doctor Who - Themes & Symbolism - From 7/7 to Saturn Worship." I have been meaning to put something together on this subject for quite a while and it seems an appropriate time given the recent renewed interest in the BBC's popular TV show "Doctor Who". In this video, I have used portions of the research included in my book, "Science Fiction and the Hidden Global Agenda" - Volume Two, along with some new bits and pieces. I look at the foreshadowing of 7/7 in the (pre-7/7) 2005 first season of "Doctor Who", as well as the repeatedly visited themes and symbolism indicative of occultism, arcane and mystery school knowledge, secret society beliefs and the practice of Saturn worship. I also touch on some synchronicities with the London 2012 Olympics - a subject I have covered comprehensively in my new book - "What Really Happened at the London 2012 Olympics" - available from Lulu Publishing here:
The link to the video is below. I have also embedded the video on this page. Please give the video a watch and a "thumbs up" if you like it. Many thanks, as always, for all your support.
All the best for now!

NEW BOOK - What Really Happened at the London 2012 Olympics

Hi folks. I have recently published a new paperback book - "What Really Happened at the London 2012 Olympics". Here is an overview of the book:
"On July 6th 2005, London was awarded the 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. The following day, London was rocked by 7/7. For the next seven years, there were sustained suggestions of a possible "terrorist attack" or other type of “event” at London 2012. When The Games passed, it was assumed that nothing had happened. Yet something had been overlooked. At London 2012, the world was subjected to a ritualistic assault on mass human consciousness. In this book, alternative knowledge researcher Carl James charts the real story of the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. From announcement to completion. London 2012 is a bizarre and disturbing story of elite global agendas, state sponsored terrorism, social engineering, arcane symbols and occult practices... even the suggestion of rampaging zombies and visiting extra-terrestrials. What really happened at the London 2012 Olympics!?"
The book is 252 pages long, includes numerous black and white images, and detailed footnotes with links and information for further research. The book is priced £11 (excluding postage costs) and is available from Lulu Publishing at the following link:

If possible, I would really appreciate it if you could repost this information via email, Facebook, Twitter or personal website. As always, many thanks to those of you who continually support all my efforts.

Richplanet 2017 Fake Reality Tour - Overview

I just wanted to remind folk about the most recent work of Richard D. Hall and Richplanet TV. I wanted to cover this material several weeks back. Unfortunately, I have been snowed under with my own research and work of late. I will be updating you all with the fruits of my labour in the next day or two. I managed to attend Richard's most recent Richplanet 2017 "Fake Reality" Tour in Birmingham a couple of months ago and it was, unsurprisingly given the amount of work that Richard puts into his research, talks and films, an excellent and enlightening event. Richard covered a myriad of subjects at the event. I did try to keep some basic notes on the subjects covered but I lost track of this when I became so engrossed in the material! There were several real "standout" aspects to the presentation that are worth mentioning. Richard looked at length at fakery and misdirection in the media and gave some shocking examples to ponder over. Following on from his previous films about the Madeleine McCann mystery, Richard also announced the release of his latest films. The pieces attempt to tackle the most difficult questions of all. Assuming Madeleine died, which Richard firmly believes is the case, how did she die? and why was the death covered up with the help of British government agencies? All parts of the two films can be viewed at the following links:

Madeleine - Why The Cover Up? - PART 1 OF 6 -
Madeleine - Why The Cover Up? - PART 2 OF 6 -
Madeleine - Why The Cover Up? - PART 3 OF 6 -
Madeleine - Why The Cover Up? - PART 4 OF 6 -
Madeleine - Why The Cover Up? - PART 5 OF 6 -
Madeleine - Why The Cover Up? - PART 6 OF 6 -
To check out Richard's previous films on the Madeleine McCann subject visit The films can also be watched on the Richplanet YouTube channel - Please try, if you can, to support Richard's ongoing research by purchasing his dvds. The latest Madeleine McCann films (collectively titled Madeleine : Why The Cover Up?) are available for £12.00. The DVD box set consists of two 90 minute films. The first film examines the movements of the initial suspect in the case, Robert Murat, both immediately before and after Madeleine was reported missing and attempts to shed light on whether he played a role in the cover up of Madeleine’s alleged death.

A real standout aspect of the Richplanet 2017 Tour (as it is a subject very close to my heart) was Richard's shocking revelations about NASA's Apollo 11 historical fakery / disinformation campaign. Richard once again secured the services of the highly respected expert in statement analysis (American Peter Hyatt) whom he utilised to reveal "embedded confessions" in a 2011 mainstream media interview given by Kate and Gerry McCann. Peter Hyatt analyses "[speech], the process involves deciding which tense to use, which words to select and what order to put them in. This happens in a fraction of a second. If somebody is constructing sentences from their experiential memory, the process follows particular patterns, which can be identified. If a person is fabricating when they speak, the cognitive process of choosing words is interrupted, because the mind must censor and insert artificial information in a very short time period. Language of somebody who is fabricating is therefore different and can be identified."

This time, Richard employed Peter Hyatt to use his skills to analyse an interview with Apollo 11 "astronaut" Neil Armstrong - conducted and filmed in the immediate period after NASA "Apollo 11" era. Peter Hyatt's conclusions were shocking, if not unsurprising. It appears that Armstrong was being deceptive / dissembling about his "Apollo 11 experiences". What is particularly noteworthy is that Hyatt explained to Richard that he had no real interest in the notion of NASA / Apollo fakery and, like many people, believed the "official" narrative of Apollo 11. The insight he gained from this analysis shocked him thoroughly. Hopefully, Richard will put this information together on his website or as a film or show of Richplanet TV as I feel this information (as with all his other research) needs to reach the widest possible audience.

Richard has recently released a light hearted "On the Road" video of his experiences during the 2017 Tour. I was really pleased to be asked by Richard if I would film a short interview (whilst at the Birmingham venue) for inclusion in this video. You can view this video at the following link. RICHPLANET 2017 Tour, video "on the road" -
Richard has now released a 4 DVD Box Set of the 2017 Tour (priced £14.00) - available at the following link: The boxset (filmed in Merthyr Tydfil, 13th April 2017) is region free (Format PAL 16:9 / 200 minutes) and presents the 3 hours of the tour presentation. Here is an overview "The lectures expose mainstream medias fake reality and how it creates fake news in order to hide the most important questions and facts. This includes an introduction to Richards latest Madeleine film "Madeleine : Why the Cover Up?", and some opinion on the sheer breadth to which mainstream media is being used to cover up the truth about Madeleine. A VERY big state secret must be being protected. The lectures contain some research into the Bridgend suicides with some shocking insights. Peter Hyatt surprises himself when he analyses a 1970 interview given by Neil Armstrong and his alleged experience of walking on the moon. Richard also continues with his research into NATO and its alleged involvement in the targeting of UFOs. Many other subjects and issues are discussed." The Box Set also includes the aforementioned "On the Road" film.

My thanks to Richard for all his ongoing efforts. His work is always relevent, thought-provoking, thoroughly investigated and done so for all the right reasons. Long may Richplanet TV and all Richard's hard work continue!

The Starchild Project – Keeping the Record Straight

Below, I have reposted a detailed and important article - written by researcher Andrew Johnson. This article is important not only with regards to the ongoing study of the Starchild Skull, but also as a stark reminder of what unfortunately sometimes happens in multiple arenas of the realm of study of what is proverbially termed alternative knowledge research. My deepest appreciation to Andrew for taking the time to put together what must have been a difficult piece to write. What matters is that the evidence he has assembled appears to (sadly) speak for itself. This matter really does seem to echo what happened with aspects of the so-called "9/11 Truth Movement" / limited-hangout. Please take the time to read this valuable article and follow all the links (highlighted in blue text) to the evidential sources. Carl (The Truth Seeker's Guide.)

The Starchild Project – Keeping the Record Straight
Andrew Johnson - This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
23 May 2017
For those people who don’t know about the so-called Starchild Skull, please watch this 17 minute fact-packed video.

I first learned about the so-called Starchild Skull in about 2003 and less than a year later, I met and befriended Lloyd Pye and helped him transfer some 35mm slides into a Powerpoint file. Over the next 9 years, we met many times and he came to stay at my house at least twice, when I organised talks for him in Nottingham (2009) and Derby (2012). Amazingly, he also attended at least 3 of my talks – in London (2005), Gravesend, UK (2012) and the same Derby event in 2012. In 2004, he visited me with Amy, whom he was later to marry, after they moved back to the USA in 2005.
Once again, I find myself in the uncomfortable position of having to document deeply troubling developments in a field of research. I will examine and unpick deeply troubling attempts to introduce doubt about the Starchild Skull and Lloyd Pye himself.
If you don’t want to read all of the text below, simply spend about 2 hours listening to these next 2 recordings. A comparison should clearly highlight the main problems which I attempt to analyse in detail below.
Melanie Young - The Starchild Skull - 2014 Border Zone UFO Conference – 40:53

Melanie Young, RN - 1/2 - The Starchild: DNA Testing and the Story Behind the Story – 62:15

Are the 2 presentations by the same person? Read on, if you wish.

Lloyd Pye – My Friend

Lloyd was a great friend with whom I was in regular contact and I was extremely upset to hear of his death from Lymphoma Cancer in Dec 2013. I still think of him daily. Lloyd was always generous with his time and his attention and, privately, he was also generous with his praise and gratitude for whatever assistance I and others gave him. In 2003, I knew that what he was doing was very important and we shared the common goal of revealing important truths and knowledge, of the type that many people didn’t want to hear or understand.
The last time I saw Lloyd was on 18 Sept 2013, when he showed me the Starchild Braincasts. At that time, he told me more about a new development with the Starchild project. Lloyd explained that some months previously, he had gone to see a business man, based in Tampa Florida, called Matthew Brownstein. Matthew was going to try and help Lloyd to develop skills for raising funds for the research into the Skull, as Lloyd felt he had not been very successful at this. Mr Brownstein himself became acutely interested in the skull and started to do his own research. At this time, Lloyd and others were attempting to raise further funds for ongoing DNA testing and analysis which, for the previous 3 years or so, had been undertaken on a voluntary basis by an anonymous geneticist in the USA. The geneticist had the permission of the company he was working for to do this research, but the company, too, wanted to remain anonymous at that time.
At our last meeting, in Sept 2013, Lloyd explained to me that Matthew Brownstein, following his own research, proposed that they form an agreement and a company as a vehicle for furthering the goals of the Starchild Project. Although Lloyd didn’t go into minute detail about the agreement, he did tell me of the formation of an agreement between himself, Amy (his ex-wife), Ray and Melanie Young and Matthew Brownstein. The reasons I am explaining this will become clear below.
I find this whole article difficult to write because I have to write about 2 people whom I thought would share the same goals as Lloyd and myself – to talk about evidence and reveal truths. However, the statements documented below essentially prove they now want to insert doubt and/or attempt to discredit years of research for which many sacrifices were made.

The So-called “Veritas” Show

Some readers will know of a subscription-based podcast/internet radio talk show called The Veritas Show which has been “on the web” since 2009, with all shows hosted by Mel Fabregas. He set up the show following his discovery of the Milton Torres UFO-shootdown case and his wish to interview Torres. As a previous guest on the programme myself (in 2010 and 2016), I did consider contacting Mel Fabregas  before posting this article, but decided against doing so, due to the extreme nature of the statements which I have documented below. I suppose I will just have to resign myself to the possibility that Mel Fabregas will post an hour-long tirade against me, as Henrik Palmgren of Red Ice radio chose to do in 2013, when I posted a similar critique of his failure to point out errors in statements guests were making about 911 evidence. Or, maybe Mel Fabregas will “do the right thing” and include an update on his website, pointing out the errors and false statements made in the interview which I am analysing here.
I had a high regard for Mel Fabregas, not only because of his support for Dr Judy Wood’s research and the fact that he has interviewed her several times, but also because he was a friendly chap who seemed to be trying to “do the right thing”. He had featured a number of interesting guests on his programme. Perhaps things began to change for Mel Fabregas around the time he began to entertain the idea of a flat earth. To anyone who can observe reality for themselves and do some basic calculations, hosting a programme like this is little different to hosting a programme about the theory that 2+2 might actually be equal to 5. Something has definitely changed for Mr Fabregas - I found this May 2017 interview to be deeply upsetting and troubling.

“Veritas” and The Starchild: DNA Testing and the Story Behind the Story

On 19 May 2017, I received a Veritas email update announcing the interview with Starchild Skull Owner Melanie young. The description seemed to have some slight errors, so I was already slightly troubled. That is, it said
Testing has revealed that both skulls were from individuals who had Native American DNA, but from different tribes.
This was information that I remembered being correct in 2003, but later testing revealed a rather more complex situation. Why didn’t Melanie Young, owner of the skull, know this?
I knew that there had been some disagreements within the Starchild Project since 2016, because I had seen the creation of Melanie Young’s own “Starchild” website – which was rather peculiar. I had also briefly corresponded with Amy Vickers – another key member of the Starchild Project Team - about the situation. During the “Veritas” show, the troubling picture became clearer.
I spent quite some time carefully listening to the interview and transcribed parts of it (timings given below are approximate). This was an uncomfortable process, knowing what I know about Lloyd Pye and the Starchild Skull Evidence. (I have recently started to give talks about the Skull, because I had copies of most of the slides Lloyd Pye used in his talks. I had these copies because I helped Lloyd on several occasions and hosted talks by him, as mentioned above.)
The interview runs for just over 2 hours, but the 2nd hour is only available to subscribers (which is kind of ironic, as you will read, below). A friend kindly donated a 3-month Veritas subscription to me, which enabled me to listen to the 2nd hour. In my analysis below, I will be “jumping around” a little, across the 2 hours, in order to point out some problems/errors I found. If you’re going to accuse me of cherry-picking statements etc, you’re going to have to listen to the whole thing, aren’t you?

Melanie Young, Who’s She?

As mentioned above, Melanie Young owns the Starchild Skull  - she had met with Lloyd Pye in 1999 and handed over the unusual skull to him, because of his expertise in hominoids. Young confirms this account in the first hour. She also states she is a UFO/Abduction experiencer – even to the point of stating she has had “hybrid alien children.”  She herself acknowledges that because of this, some people do question her sanity (but I, personally, do not judge her on this issue – as there are others who have described very similar and deeply troubling experiences).
You can listen to the first hour of the interview here:

Young and Fabregas discuss the story of the Skull and at 1:58 into the interview Mel Fabregas says:
“I didn’t know [about] your name!”
The way that Mel Fabregas said this was odd to me - as if he was trying to say that Lloyd Pye had tried to keep Melanie’s identity a secret.  This seemed to be confirmed by the discussion which took place at about 28:23.
MY: He had no life but fringe science [MY talks about her business and family life]
MY: I stayed out of the way.
MF: You did to the point I didn’t know who you were!
MY: Most people don’t know who I am and most people don’t know that I own it and even the people involved in the project attempted to take the ownership away from me.
Before dealing with this remark, I will make one comment on what she said after the above:
So it’s been interesting since Lloyd’s passing on trying to get me out there for people to understand the story behind the story and to get the correct information because the correct information isn’t out there. Except for since I came on the scene about a year ago. Lloyd did not tell the truth.
This is a direct attack on Lloyd Pye’s reputation and is clearly meant to insert doubt. Listeners can make up their own minds as to whether they think that Mel Fabregas, champion of Veritas, challenges these statements in any way – or comes up with any of the points of rebuttal to what Melanie Young says. There are some points that Young makes that Mr Fabregas should have known were wrong/untrue/misleading. Please read on.
[EDIT: 25 May 2017 - I noted that Melanie said "I came on the scene about a year ago". She was giving public talks in 2014 and 2015 - she didn't just start doing this in 2016. However, 2016 is when Chase Kloetzke came on the scene. Is this a "different Melanie" talking, then, do you think?]

The theme of Melanie Young being marginalised was revisited in the 2nd hour when she said, regarding Matthew Brownstein:
He thought he was going to take up the torch but there was no way I was not going to be in the forefront again – you were not going to push me to the back of the pack.
The overriding impression I got is that Melanie Young was trying to say that the other members of the Starchild Project team (including Lloyd Pye) had tried to minimise and downplay her role and take away attention from her. What was really galling is that I knew Lloyd Pye had never done this and, when given the time, he had always clearly stated that Ray and Melanie Young were the owners of the skull. He said this at least in 2007 (3 mins 50 into this interview with the Paracast), 2008 (10 mins in) and 2009 – at the Nottingham Presentation I organised and recorded – note the photo on the screen (approx 9 mins 42 in). Interested people can find many many more examples of Lloyd Pye’s interviews where he mentions her name. For Mel Fabregas not to know her name in relation to the skull must mean that he hadn’t listened to the story of the skull very closely, or he had a poor memory or he was deliberately misleading people over this issue.
Similarly, the Starchild Project Website also showed (at least by 2009), who the owners of the skull were – here are links from the Internet Archive. Even the current Website makes this clear, though there isn’t a photograph of the owners.
Going back to Melanie Young’s abduction experiences, at 25:00 in hour one, she stated:
When I found Lloyd he was very clear that he did not want me talking about my abduction experiences. He did not want me doing anything with abductions and… related to the Starchild. …. To him it was like a battlefield.
Though Lloyd Pye may have said this to Melanie in 1999, or thereabouts, Lloyd had clearly changed his mind on this sort of issue 4 years later – when he was openly discussing a possible connection between the Skull and Alien Abduction experiences at some of his lectures. He was still discussing these issues in 2009. (As we shall see later, he was less inclined to include this material in his lectures from 2010 onwards.)

Intervention Theory

In parallel with furthering the research goals of the Starchild Project, Lloyd Pye had discussed other aspects of his research which seem to indicate that an off-world influence has been at work in the development of homo sapiens. This “Intervention Theory”, for example, is discussed in his ebook. I bring this up, because in hour 1, at 26:58, Young states:
MY: I just felt that comfortable with him. I did not know what his agenda was going to be. And his agenda all along has been to prove that aliens have interfered with our growth on this planet that we have been genetically manipulated. That’s what he wanted to prove with the skulls.
MF - Isn’t that contaminating some of the research with your own - I don’t want to say pre-conceived notions… Isn’t that providing some of your biases?
MY - Yes, so correct.
This was a peculiar comment  – suggesting that Lloyd wanted to use the Starchild Skull to “prove himself correct” about Intervention theory. Whilst this may even have been true at one time, it was still a peculiar comment – because it came from a woman who stated she had hybrid children!  (That is, someone who had been on the receiving end of alien intervention.) Fabregas seems to “join in” with this criticism of Pye, which is also inappropriate, as we shall see.
In reality, it appears Lloyd was more interested in gathering evidence about the Starchild Skull than proving his intervention theory was true. Again, if Melanie Young had personally experienced “interference” by aliens, wouldn’t she, too, want to see her experiences validated by additional evidence?
As was saw above, Lloyd did talk about alien hybrid children – at least until 2009, but then, in 2010, more DNA evidence was given to him. Following this, Lloyd clearly stated that it looked as if the Starchild Skull was not a hybrid. In his lectures, he describes how new DNA evidence changed his conclusions about the “hybrid” scenario. Both Melanie Young and Mel Fabregas entirely failed to mention this (another reason for me writing this article.)

“Don’t Speak Ill of the Dead” – They’re Just After Money…?

This is one of those phrases that, when it is uttered, you can guess that the person making this statement is going to go against their own advice/statement. In hour 1, at 29:35 this peculiar exchange takes place:
MF:There’s a saying that goes like this “Don’t speak ill of the dead..”…… A lot of researchers and me were invited to a private meeting in Pennsylvania…
MY: … with Paul…
MF:Yes, I also saw a presentation at UFO congress in 2011 or 2012 and please people don’t criticise me for what I am about to say… but I couldn’t stay there for the entire time… because at one point I felt it was almost like an infomercial trying to collect thousands and thousands of dollars. Every other sentence had to do with “donate to this” and I understand if you need to conduct a DNA test and you don’t have the funds and you go out there and try to get them. But the amount of money being requested was enormous and I don’t know about you, but how much does a DNA test cost?
This was also extremely peculiar – not just because they were talking about a closed meeting of researchers and were clearly being cagey about the details, but also because Mel Fabregas had already been told, in some detail, about the cost of the DNA tests in his own interview with Matthew Brownstein, conducted shortly after Lloyd’s tragic death. What exactly is the problem Mr Fabregas is trying to solve here?
The “money theme” is returned to several times in this interview, but the way the costs have been incurred or changed over the years is never properly discussed with accurate detail. For a more detailed summary, refer to the already referenced interview with Matthew Brownstein, or the one given on Red Ice Radio by Amy Vickers (whom Melanie Young attacks at several points in the interview. I will leave the listener to make up their own minds about these remarks, once they find them. I would strongly argue that it is Amy’s name that is the least well-known by those who are familiar with the Starchild Skull.)

Money and Ownership of the Skull

Mel Fabregas further criticises Lloyd and the Project’s fundraising efforts at about 30:50 in Hour 1, stating:
Why do you need 100’s of thousands of dollars to continue an operation where some of the titles that I saw including one – who I interviewed a few years ago I am not gonna name the names  folks you can google it within our website - he is the last person who came on board. Chief operating officer – things along those lines. Why do you need all this corporate board of director in such a fashion that in order to keep that operation going it almost looks like the muscular dystrophy association collecting funds every year.
Again, why won’t he even mention Matthew Brownstein’s name? Melanie Young does! What is the objective here? Later, Fabregas  has to acknowledge,  that Melanie Young was involved in the formation of a company. In the 2nd hour, they discuss the formation of the Starchild Project Company/agreement. At 2:55 in another peculiar exchange, they say:
MF: Do you now regret having given Lloyd the Starchild Skull
MY: No, the only thing I regret is signing any legal papers with the other members of the team.
MF: Oh you did sign some legal papers?
MY: Yes, towards the end of Lloyd’s life, after he was diagnosed with Lymphoma – or right before – within the last 6 months. When Matthew Brownstein came into the picture that’s when they decided we needed to have a business in order to get funders to get investors so that’s when they took it to a lawyer he drew up paperwork on the operating agreement OK so they developed 2 companies. One I totally understood and it was about funding the research. The 2nd one was explained to me that it was making sure everyone knew I was the owner but I was giving them sole permission to do the research.
MF: Oh my goodness so you were basically relinquishing your rights
MY: I didn’t understand that I was relinquishing my rights but what really happened was I relinquished ownership.
MF: Which was worse
MY: Which was worse. And again this was stuff that was pretty much forced down my neck because  it had to be done and they had a time table and I was not given enough time to take it to a lawyer I trusted or I knew.
The idea of Melanie Young being forced into an agreement and given a time limit seems ridiculous. In any case, this agreement has now been dissolved! A little later in this discussion, Mel Fabregas again collaborates in trying to paint the original team members in a bad light:
MF: Even without those legal documents, they were in possession of the skull for many years, correct?
MY: For 3 years.
MF: So possession is 9/10 of the law so if they were in possession of that skull, and you didn’t have any you didn’t have any legal documentation stating it was yours, how could you prove that it was yours and I am surprised you got it back. I am glad
My understanding of this situation, from knowing Lloyd personally is this. When Lloyd was lecturing originally, and also taking the skull around to various experts, he was in possession of the original skull. At some point, however, he realised this wasn’t a good idea – as it became clear it was very unusual and needed to be kept safe. At this point, an expensive replica was made by a company “Bones Clones” and that is what he carried around with him. So, I assume from this, that the real skulls were returned to Melanie Young in about 2002 (as in 1999 + 3 years). So, Mel Fabregas appears to be conspiring with Young to promote the idea that Young did not have possession of the skull for “many years” when in actuality, she had possession of it all the time. If you listen closely, you will hear discussion of the skull’s teeth, which were used for DNA testing. Hence, I am highly sceptical of Young’s story of picking the Skull’s up from Matthew Brownstein in Tampa (and no specific dates are given). The “I am surprised you got it back” statement from Fabregas can only be meant to cast the original project members in a bad light, suggesting they would try to keep possession of the skull against Young’s wishes. This is clearly a ridiculous suggestion, when it seems Young had the skulls all the time!
At around 6:50, Mel Fabregas says:
Are you sure you have the real one?
That is, he suggests, Melanie might not have been given the real one back. Again, Fabregas shows a lack of knowledge here – because the real skulls have had segments of bone cut out of them for the testing – the replicas do not have these cuts. It would be totally clear if Young was given a “replica skull.” However, Young then says:
MY: Oh the other one I have too. I know I have the real one because the copy has been destroyed.
Wow – why destroy a copy? I have my own copy here and it wasn’t cheap! Young then talks about having a museum quality cast made – but for what purpose, when she already had a good quality copy?

[EDIT: 25 May 2017 - I think she (or someone) probably destroyed the first copy - this was the best one and, I understand, it was made BEFORE portions of bone were removed for DNA testing - and I think the first "Bones Clones" copy was used to make the Brain Casts.]
The theme of money and ownership is returned to several times during the interview, with both of them trying to give the impression that Melanie Young was “taken for a ride” by disingenuous people. This is extremely upsetting. Why on earth would Melanie Young be associated with such people for over 15 years, without any such statements from her? Perhaps we will find part of the answer to this question later.

Age of the Skull

At several points in the interview, Young makes comments about the age of the skull at death. For example at about 41:07 in hour 1, she states:
All of the experts say it’s 5 years old the only ones that say it’s more than that is Lloyd and Amy. But all of the experts say it’s a 5 year old child.
This statement is false in both parts. The evidence regarding whether the skull was that of an adult or a child is inconclusive. This is clearly stated on Starchild website in Dr Ted Robinson’s report:
17. A detached upper right maxilla contains two molars [recent note: one has been lost to testing]. Tooth wear on the molars indicates maturity was reached, yet another set of teeth are present in the maxilla and appear ready to take the place of those mature teeth when and if they are lost or are no longer useful. The question of age at death remains open.
Various experts are named on this page and so Young’s statement about “all the experts” is false. Why is she, as owner of the skull, contradicting what was on the project website for years? Why is Mel Fabregas not familiar with this?

DNA Evidence/Update

At several points in the interview, there is discussion of DNA evidence – but some of the statements are vague and/or incorrect. The 2nd set of DNA tests were done in 2003 by a company called Trace Genetics (which was later absorbed into another company). Lloyd discussed all of this in his lectures. Young also tries to present the impression that the Starchild Project have hidden data and reports. A couple of statements Young made stand out at 7:57 in hour 2 she states, weirdly:
MY: I never saw a report from Trace. All you ever saw in reality when you went to see one of Lloyd’s presentations were screenshots or photoshopped pictures  -
MF: Right
This statement is also false, as we shall see, and the remarks immediately following are also made to paint Lloyd Pye and Amy Vickers in a bad light. (Fabregas again conspires in making these remarks.)
In hour 2, Young makes further remarks about the 2003 Trace Genetics Report. At 9:21 she states
So when we started this new independent investigation with Chase, all of a sudden, the 2003 report from Trace Genetics shows up on the website. On the project website. Even though for the last year, I had been begging Amy for reports. She would never give them too me. She would always say “they’re in the book or they’re online”
This is a lie. I found a copy of the Trace Genetics report in the Internet Archive dated June 2004! I cannot believe that Melanie Young was either not given a copy or did not know it had been posted. Here is the link explicitly -
Why can’t Mel Fabregas verify the claims of his guests? “Verify” and “Veritas” – you can see the connection, right?
Young states that she has recently, through a person called Chase Kloetzke, initiated more DNA testing and that the Young’s website currently contains results in a report dated 28 March 2017, which states on Page 6:
The results for the nuclear DNA feasibility test were positive. There is sufficient nuclear DNA detected for future testing opportunities.
As stated by Melanie Young in the interview, the mtDNA results agree with those carried out 14 years ago and since the original 2003 tests, nuDNA (nuclear DNA) was recovered in further tests, as Lloyd  described in his presentations between 2010 and 2013. Hence, the March 2017 report appears to contain no new information. In the interview, Melanie Young implies that further results were due in April or May 2016 (by my estimation). Mel Fabregas states near the end of hour 2 of the interview that he would record an additional short conversation about the results, if they became available. No discussion was included and neither is anything newer than 28 Mar 2017 posted on Melanie Young’s Website, that I was able to find.
At other points in the interview, both Young and Fabregas question why it’s taken so long for DNA tests to be done and a figure of 20 years (elapsed time) is mentioned by Fabregas (at about the 23 minute mark of hour 2) – disregarding the earlier discussion of the Trace Genetics 2003 test – which is covered in depth in Lloyd’s lectures, as already stated.
Young makes further remarks around the 24:20 mark (Fabregas assists) which appear to be an attempt to discredit the (anonymous) geneticist that has been doing the research for free since 2010.
MY: People found Lloyd on line and offered to help and the scientist found Lloyd and said that he could do the testing for free in his spare time at the lab he was working for so we went that route and he found weird stuff but nothing he could substantiate and he would not put his name on it.
So when Lloyd passed and I started really looking into it because no one else was doing anything. I tried to pick up the torch.
I started looking into this guy he’s not a geneticist – he’s a virologist used to work for the CDC – probably really good in his field – but he had no clue how to do human genome – nor did the lab he was working for.
We wasted time because he was willing to do it for free.
MF: Yeah but do what if he doesn’t know what he’s doing.
MY: That’s my thought.
It’s odd how this guy who “doesn’t know what he is doing” was able to supply Lloyd Pye with detailed screenshots – from the NIH database – that show the DNA sequence matches (or lack thereof). Neither Fabregas nor Young discuss the FoxP2 gene, which was discussed in some detail in Fabregas’ interview with Matthew Brownstein in Dec 2013. As an example, a question Fabregas could have posed would be, “What about the FoxP2 gene that Matthew Brownstein and I discussed in 2013?” This may, perhaps, have elicited a more appropriate response from Young. However, it seems that character assassination was the “order of the day” here.

Discrediting the Original Investigation

It appears one of the objectives of this interview is to discredit the original investigation. It is so hard to believe that this would be the case, as the person being interviewed is the very same one that “kicked off” the whole “quest” back in 1999. However, at the end of hour 1 of the interview, Young makes the following staggering statement:
You go to the Starchild all of their information is old and not true. I don’t like to speak ill of anybody but their website has changed so much since chase and I started the new investigation that they basically are mirroring what we’re finding. So what you have seen in the past is no longer on that website – they’ve changed it completely. But they definitely are misleading on their website.
Chase Kloetzke and mine are totally scientific in nature – mine’s a little bit more story telling and that’s  
Now, it is quite easy for anyone to compare the 2 websites and it should, very quickly, become clear that there is a lot of information on and not very much at all on the site (so the “mirroring” claim is also bogus). Being slightly facetious, and taking Young’s statement literally, that all information on the Starchild Project website is “old and not true,” doesn’t that mean that she is not really the owner of the skull and has, in fact, never been associated with the skull? (She did say all of the information is “not true”.) So here again, we have a ridiculous statement – she never really states which specific information is untrue and cannot be true. Her sweeping statement if taken literally, discredits her own story/account.
Also, the statement about the  website having been changed since the “new investigation” is misleading. A video of Chase Kloetzke discussing the new “investigation” was posted on 6 May 2016. To assess what changes took place on the Starchild Project’s website between, say Jan 2016 and the present time, you can access a version of the website from Jan 2016 in the internet archive. Comparing that to the current version, one can indeed see that the layout/style has been re-vamped, but the information is the same and I would argue that the newer version is clearer and shows a lot of information directly on the homepage (for example, the “Starchild For Dummies” video is the first thing you see now.)

“Maybe It’s Hydrocephalic After All…”

Early on in the investigation, it was deduced this skull was not that of a hydrocephalic. This explanation  is the one sceptics and debunkers immediately “go to”. Lloyd Pye, and others (including myself) have gone to some lengths to show that hydrocephaly cannot explain the skull’s shape and form. Indeed, Melanie Young herself, in a 2009 interview with Bill Burns (Blackboard) and others in the “UFO Hunters Team” was asked about Hydrocephaly and confirmed the skull could not have been from a hydrocephaly victim:
MY: If it were a hydrocephalic, this would be bulged out (pointing) but only one side would be bulged out, or the back would be bulged. It wouldn’t be symmetrical like that is.”
BB: So a hydrocephalic skull is asymmetrical
MY: asymmetrical…
BB: This skull is symmetrical…
MY: …is completely symmetrical
MY: If that were hydrocephalic, the bones would not be connected. The would be no skull
So, then, what possessed Melanie Young to say, at 20:26 in hour 2 of the Mel Fabregas interview:
MY: I am not ruling out Hydrocephaly any more – I was at the beginning – because I bought into Lloyd – but I am not gonna rule that out – now that I’ve looked at it and ye know….
Again here, we see her implying that Lloyd Pye persuaded her. However, she had previously implied or even stated that it was her knowledge of human anatomy – and deformities in infants – which had shown her the form of the skull was not the result of hydrocephaly.
Shortly after this incredible statement, Young discusses Dr Aaron Judkins (an archaeologist who lead a dig for evidence of Noah’s Ark) and states:
Aaron Judkins is the only one to go on record claiming it’s not hydrocephaly
This statement is also untrue. Point 8 in Dr Ted Robinson’s report on the Starchild Project website:
8. Dr. Bachynsky noted that there is no evidence of erosion of the inner table of the skull. Such erosion would be consistent with a diagnosis of hydrocephaly, so this condition can safely be ruled out as a cause of the abnormalities expressed. Hydrocephaly also causes a widening of the sutures, again not expressed here. There was consensus agreement to both of these observations by other experts conversant with these features.
Why is Melanie Young making these false claims? Is it me “seeing things” where there is really nothing unusual?

Chase Kloetzke – The New “Investigator”

Several times in the interview, Melanie Young mentions Chase Kloetzke who, as indicated above, has allegedly “taken on” the investigation. In the interview, we learn very little about Kloetzke – certainly, none of her expertise is discussed in any detail, neither are details of why Melanie Young appears to have put so much trust in this person. Kloetzke has a website, where she gives information about her background (and a lot of photos of herself.) Her “bio page” states:
Chase earned her Master Trainer, Master Instructor title while employed with the Department of Defense. Armed with a Bio-mechanical Engineer accreditation, she was responsible for designing specialized programs and the supervision of complete success regarding Force Readiness, unique mission responsibilities and Elite Force Protection.
This information seems rather vague to me – is there anything which indicates she has a good knowledge of human anatomy, osteology, genetics or other related fields? So, Melanie Young criticised a geneticist (or virologist) working, gratis, in a lab intermittently for several years – and was supplying real data, but she is uncritical of some person that has recently come on the scene, has disclosed connections to the US military and lacks any obvious credentials to help with the investigation of the Starchild Skull? Is it me?


In this analysis, I have tried here to be dispassionate, but it is difficult here, due the involvement of my late friend Lloyd Pye and because I know about the evidence being discussed. As with 911 evidence, I have spoken about it publicly, many times and the same sort of attacks have been made on the evidence and the “messengers”.
In Nov 2015, I wrote to Melanie Young enclosing a link to a booklet (36 MB download) I had produced to accompany the talk(s) I was giving about the Skull. This booklet was basically a total rip-off of the information either produced by Lloyd Pye or posted on the Starchild Project Website. If you work through this booklet, and through the 2017 Fabregas/Young interview, it should serve to further illustrate how bizarre the whole interview was.
Melanie Young did actually write back to me on 05 Nov 2015 saying:
Thank you for your support. you have done a great job on your pamphlet. It is very well written. I know I couldn’t done a better [job]  myself. I appreciate anything you could do to help me pick up were Lloyd left off. I owe it to him for everything he has done for me.
So, from reviewing this, as I just have, it appears that something happened to Melanie Young after Nov 2015, because her comments in the Mel Fabregas interview don’t seem to tally at all with the Nov. 2015 email, above. To provide further evidence that something serious has happened to her, I found an audio of Melanie Young’s presentation at the 25 Jan 2014, Border UFO conference, in Texas. Here, she is in complete agreement with all the research on the Starchild Project Website and reports on it 100% accurately. She also has trouble describing what happened to Lloyd Pye and her overall demeanour makes her sound like a different person – speaking in a clear and concise manner. This is also the case with her presentation on 21 April 2015 at the Ozark UFO conference, where we can here her accurately discussing the DNA evidence.
I ask the question then, what has caused Melanie Young, in April or May 2017 to lie about Lloyd Pye and smear or attempt to smear other members of the Starchild Project team? Why did Mel Fabregas assist in this process – when he had previously interviewed Matthew Brownstein and had previously met Lloyd Pye. He did not challenge anything Melanie Young said and did not bring up any of the points I have made in this article.
From the discussion, analysis and checking that I have written about above, I conclude here that the Fabregas/Young interview served one or more of the following purposes:
· It was an attempt to discredit the previous investigation work.
· Wind the clock back 18 years, by re-presenting the disproved theory that the Starchild Skull is that of a hydrocephalic child.
· Introduce doubt about the reputation of Lloyd Pye and/or attack him.
· Introduce doubt about the reputation of other Starchild Project team members.
· Focus on funding/money issues, and imply the project was/is all a money-grabbing scam (ironically, some of this discussion is in an interview recording which sits behind a “pay-wall”)
Based on previous analysis of similar issues, I will now switch to some speculation. The skull is now in the possession of Chase Kloetzke, who will either not publish any results which go beyond what was known by 2012, or she will publish results which attempt to contradict or discredit the research done up to that point. The video of Kloetzke, posted on Melanie Young’s site (referenced above), shows no images of the skull, gives no new information and gives no real clue as to what precise expertise Kloetzke has to further the analyse and investigate the skull. Perhaps the overall intent was to encourage those who have worked so hard to reveal the truth about the skull to “give up and walk away.” Didn’t quite work, did it…?

Update 25 May 2017

My prediction made in the last paragraph was correct.
