It has come to our attention that someone has been spreading rumors that have, in some minds, caused doubts as to the authenticity of our reports. It has been done to lead others in the field into believing that they are nothing but fabrication.
Unsurprisingly, just before this, we gave a star team member her walking papers in reference to all aspects of our case, due to efforts to conceal our work from Mufon, to get us to act in anonymity so the true source of the reports could be altered in her favor.
A large accusation to make ? not when we have all the e-mail conversations with this investigator including the contracts she sent us to sign away all rights to our story, our findings, to her in return for moneys that were to be passed down, IF anything of consequence was ever done with the material. Surely she already had something in mind or she would not have been so persistent in the contracts sent back and forth, all day,ones we never approved of.
It was because of recent actions to borrow specific photos of ours on her way to a conference, and then the story she published two to three days later about an episode on the highway with a UFO, that we finally broke off communication finally. Our problem; the photos she borrowed from us were nearly the exact setting for her tale.
If you hear any repetitive out of the Kansas city office or Saint Louis office stating any false truths in our tales, take the source into the consideration. Neither will be an accurate one. We have stated on too many occasions the truth in our work and you have read between the lines in our reports the upset sometimes that came along with extraordinary findings. We trust that those of you who have followed the site to not need further convincing.
As Lori mentioned, a lot is taking place in the organization of Mufon at this time. It is not growing. It is struggling to survive. The recent concession made to investigators of the Star Team status, essentially, is just a bandage on the knee of the children who wish to have more say in Mufon.
It is a soothing measure to give the coffee shop investigators something to swell up and be proud of. While they are lost in their moment of misguided revelry, a celebration only taking place in the minds of egocentric, the Mufon political wheels keep their grinding progress as low-key as possible.
So, you have a situation much like the past examples of groups and organizations with noble initial causes, brought to a point of ineffectiveness by the very people who populate it.
Mufon was supposed to be, as I’ve been told, an organization for the collection and categorization of UFO Reports. It was made up people who were, for the most par,) volunteering their services, were becoming members out of a common interest in answering once and for all the question: Is there really Alien life visiting our world? The search was what was supposed to be important and not the camera opportunities with reporters.
Some use this body and its activities, not as a place to knuckle down with other sharp minds and look for real hints answers, but as a convention atmosphere, set up more for social networking and the selling their own stories than a time to ponder with the others the intricacies surrounding the stories of abductees and other witnesses.
It is also a place to be someone else for a while, and whether that alter ego is using the conference for much more personal networking or the individual is content to play psychic/contactees/ investigator, and a master of all situations, it really matters little.
The work the parents assigned before leaving is still all over the bedroom floor. There is no serious attention to their initial purpose,.
So the new owner proceeds. Do you really think he hesitates a bit in proceeding with his initial purpose? He doesn’t even have to look up from his table because the new guy below him, sitting at the table, can throw scraps convincing those lost dissension that someone is really listening.
Whatever Mr Bigelow plan , they will ,unless he runs into a governmental problem, come to fruition. Why shouldn’t they?
He had the money to purchase the organization. Someone had to be willing to sell it to him. My point is, unless there were issues involved with the sale that were corrupt, he made a legal purchase and as owner has every right to do as he pleases with it.
We don’t have to agree on his politics or his motives for him to have that right. When he becomes aware of just how little these agents are doing for Mufon in regard to the definition of their positions, well, he might just decide there’s no reason to waste his money financing a dinner playhouse for wanna be stars in the UFO and Occult field. It has to be remembered, he didn’t buy a group of people. He bought a storehouse of information. Their participation is optional.
This makes all the posturing by investigators and the race for acclaim a bit silly. Investigators have watched the efforts of possible experiencers to sell themselves and elaborate sometimes falsely on their tales. Investigators have seen the possibilities and some are already grooming themselves, not just to be star team members (I wonder who came up with that title?) but real STARS.
