Contactee: Telepaths and an Extraterrestrial

NOTE: I was open-minded to the commentary until 'Star Trek' was mentioned...

Chicago, IL - 7/27/2010: I know telepathic contact draws real sceptical responces but I have found virtually nothing in literature about their society or conduct so hopefully something can be learned from mine. This occured in a hospital which probably draws more scepticism, but unlike many contactees who boast a special role or genes or whatever, all I could think when these 5 beings entered my mind is I wanted them the hell out, I wanted to leave the damn hospital. It was not a voluntary or uplifting experience. I sensed the 4 telepaths represented very important people or political entities and they were very angry about being dragged in the presence of this being, I think they blamed me. I was not the center of the telepathic conference but more a witness or possible helper. As I say, if I had been thinking I was some vanguard human contactee, it would have been me at the center of the conference. The alien sounded male, but had no organized projection of emotions or aesthetics other than some joviality. His mood was altogether alien from a human perspective. On Star Trek you see certain cultures having particular emotional qualities, here there were absolutely none, this person did not know how to impress his audience of humans, and made mistakes. Many I pointed out and he was thankful. His main point was that our planet was running out of resources and was going to run into some big, big trouble. He was offering that his people would take a group of human intellectuals away from the many problems that were bound to crop up, and set up an archive for us humans. He suggested I would make a good diplomat, but my focus was to get away from this hospital. He left and I had to deal with alot of mental stress from the 4 remaining people. At last I was released (I asked for a court hearing so because I felt I was being detained without due process) The Doctor said I was fine and the further I got from that hospital the better I felt. I think when the aliens deal with their medical subjects they sort of freeze the mind to prevent conversation so this was a unique event where 5 humans (mainly 4) freely interacted with this extremely strange guy. I have had telepathic experiences before but never with a being as absolutely different from humans as this. By the way, there have been 2 near debarkations with a saucer at Chicagos O'Hare airport. I hope this is of some help to researchers. MUFON CMS

All US Presidents bar one are directly descended from a Medieval English King

What do Barack Obama, Thomas Jefferson, George W. Bush and the other past U.S. presidents have in common? Besides holding the coveted title of commander-in-chief, it appears that all of them but one are cousins.

The remarkable discovery was made by 12-year-old BridgeAnne d’Avignon, of Salinas, California, who created a ground-breaking family tree that connected 42 of 43 U.S. presidents to one common, and rather unexpected, ancestor: King John of England.

‘They all have the trait of wanting power,’ d’Avignon told the station WFMY.

King John, also known as John ‘Lackland’, is renowned for signing the Magna Carta in 1215, which limited the monarch’s power and helped form the British Parliament.

John’s other claim to fame, or infamy, is that he was depicted as the villain in the Robin Hood tales.

D’Avignon, a seventh-grader at Monte Vista Christian School in Watsonville, started the project in hopes of tracing back her own bloodline in France, but somewhere along the way she decided to take her genealogical quest to the highest level.

In order to create the family tree, the 12-year-old spent months scouring through over 500,000 names in search of the ‘presidential Adam.’

Her 80-year-old grandfather, who has been tracing roots for nearly six decades, helped her make the presidential links.

D’Avignon started with the first U.S. president, George Washington, she traced both the male and female family lines to make the connection.

Prior to d’Avignon’s discovery, genealogists were only able to link 22 families of presidents, likely because they only focused on male bloodlines.

The only former commander-in-chief not linked to King John is the eighth president, Martin Van Buren, who had Dutch roots.

The teen also found out that she is the 18th cousin of President Obama. She even wrote to her new-found relative a letter to share her findings with him.

So far, however, d’Avignon said she received only a generic response from the White House.

D’Avignon created a poster of the presidential family tree and is selling signed copies of it in hopes of raising enough money to make a trip to Washington DC. The middle-school student says her goal is to hand-deliver a replica of her family tree to the president.

'I think we just all go back somewhere; it’s just a matter of proving it,' she said. - dailymail

Cattle Mutilations in Colorado Have Ranchers on Alert

Recent livestock mutilations have Gunnison area ranchers shaken and on the alert for more strange attacks on cattle and horses.

In recent weeks, a horse was shot and had its head skinned at the LeValley Ranch property, which is part of the Esty Ranch holdings about eight miles east of Gunnison. The horse also had its tongue and anus removed.

Less than two months ago, a prize heifer in the same heavily traveled area just off of Colorado 50 and Colorado 114 had its tongues, lips and anus removed.

"To me it looks like a ritualistic issue. Either that, or they are high on drugs. There is just no logical explanation for it," said Esty Ranch owner Mike Clarke.

Two other incidents took place on other ranches in that vicinity in May and July.

The four mutilations have prompted the Gunnison County Stockgrowers Association to offer a $500 reward for any information that will lead to a conviction. The Colorado State Patrol has also been alerted to watch for strange activities in that area. The Gunnison County Sheriff's Office, the agency investigating the mutilations, did not return phone calls asking for comment.

Clarke's ranch foreman, Allen Roper, stated that the mutilated animals appeared to be shot, but no bullets were found and that the mutilations were done with knives and were not a result of predators.

The recent mutilations have similarities to mutilations that occurred in the 1960s in neighboring Saguache County. The most famous incident was reported in 1967 when a horse that became known as Snippy" had its head and neck skinned. Like in the most recent cases, there was no blood at the scene or tracks. The mutilations were never solved.

In 2009, a San Luis Valley rancher found four calves with their tongues sliced out, udders removed, eyes cored and faces skinned. Those cases were never solved and there also was no blood nor tracks around those animals.

Clarke said if there is another incident he expects "the ranching community will really be up in arms."

"What concerns us is what they are going to do next?" Clarke said. - gunnisontimes
