JUST SAY, "NO!"

.

ALIEN AGENDA
by Jim Marrs
published: 1997
.
Let's begin with the obvious: Somehow you just have to like a book about flying saucers and aliens written by a man named MARRS (even if these creepy dudes aren't really originating from distant planets -- as I'm convinced they aren't). I've just read ALIEN AGENDA for the second time, and if a more thorough overview of the UFO phenomenon (along with all of its auxiliary mysteries such as abductions, crop circles, & cattle mutilations) has been published, then I'm unaware of it.
.
The book opens with a bang as Marrs (correctly) states, "The controversy over the existence of UFOs is over. UFOs are real." The only people who would contend with that are those who have not objectively studied the subject in depth, and those who are too frightened to admit the obvious. I am dismayed by a few of my fellow reviewers who decry a lack of evidence to support the UFO "concept." If they were expecting a UFO to emerge from between the pages when they first cracked this book open, then it is no wonder they were disappointed.
.
ALIEN AGENDA documents the testimony of innumerable individuals who claim to have observed incomprehensible, unearthly flying objects. Some of these well-respected, rational people include an astronaut, doctor, fighter pilot, archbishop, police chief, aircraft design company employee, Air Force lieutenant, deputy federal marshal, Franciscan nun, Air Force major, radar operator, brigadier general, county sheriff, geologist, physicist, chemist, petroleum engineer, secretary of the Navy, Navy photographer, senator, astronomer, lieutenant colonel, civil defense director, military intelligence officer, and a priest! If a collection of eyewitnesses like this was arrayed against you in a court of law to testify that they had seen you kill your mother-in-law, you can be most certain that a lethal injection would be awaiting you in your immediate future. (Either that or a commendation, depending upon your mother-in-law.)

.
And yet, when the testimony concerns flying saucers and aliens, suddenly people are quick to brand it "unreliable" and dismiss it. We can't have it both ways! Out here where I live, most of us couldn't beat a dead dog lying by the side of the road in an I.Q. contest, but still we're smart enough to realize that testimony from people like the aforementioned constitutes valid evidence in support of the UFO phenomenon.
.
In addition, I'd say that when a former director of the C.I.A. publicly states that UFOs are real and that "through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense", and when a professionally esteemed physicist says of crop circles, "whatever is doing these formations is affecting the fundamental biophysics and biochemistry of the plants... the basic micro fibril structures of the plants have been altered. Such cellular changes cannot be hoaxed", then it's time that we sit up straight at our desks and start taking notes!

.
No proof? No evidence? It seems that a few reviewers are in need of having that grey pudding between their ears examined by a competent physician! {Oh, Stephen! Stephen! Stephen! Why must you insist on being so "UNHELPFUL"?} That was just the planet Venus that the farmer saw land in his cow pasture? It was only swamp gas that followed the lady's car for thirty miles down the highway? That was just a weather balloon that buzzed the pilot's airplane repeatedly at 4000 miles per hour? Okie-dokie. Whatever you say, Mr. Government Man. You've never lied to us before!
.
Yes, ALIEN AGENDA has a few problems: Too many typographical errors for a major publication. As one reviewer pointed out, the author overworks the term "mind-set" and you may or may not find this irritating depending upon your mind-set. Chapter 11, IN THE MIND'S EYE, which is highly speculative at best, is too long. Chapter 12, A METAPHYSICAL EXAM (where I believe we finally sit down to the meat loaf and Tater Tots), is too short. When Marrs refers to "the demagoguery of anti-Communist Senator Joseph McCarthy" and his "witch-hunt" -- when he implies credence in Paul Ehrlich's book THE POPULATION BOMB -- when he insinuates that F.D.R. was somehow an unwelcome threat to the Morgan Banking House -- it is clear that MARRS is out in space!

.
With a few reservations, I recommend the book, but suggest that you not stop here. Also investigate ALIEN ENCOUNTERS by Chuck Missler, ENCOUNTERS WITH UFOs by John Weldon & Zola Levitt, and afterwards, ALIEN INTERVENTION by Paul Christopher. These books make extremely compelling arguments that the manifestation of interdimensional demonic activity and deception is the most all-around satisfying answer to the UFO question and its attendant problems. I definitely agree!
.
With that in mind, permit me to close with a bit of unsolicited advice: If some pleasant evening while you are slurping beer in your jacuzzi, a silver disc should descend into your backyard, landing on your barbecue grill, and a long-limbed, large-headed, big-eyed short feller emerges, flashes you the Vulcan peace sign and offers to take you for a spin in his jaunty little ship, I strongly urge you to..... (*Please see the title of this review.)

  1. Al Bondigas here. Ha! That was some funny stuffs. If my memory serves me, wasn't there a book or two by Marrs that you really liked, and kind of got you started on your information journey?

      Nothing I read by Marrs got me started on my information journey, because that began in early '94.

      But you may be thinking of his book 'INSIDE JOB: Unmasking The 9/11 Conspiracies'. That was a good, early book on the 9/11 scam.

      He also wrote a pretty good book on the JFK assassination that I read. I think it was titled 'CROSSFIRE'.

      His research can be a tad sloppy at times, but the bulk of it is well worth reading and considering.

      I think I may have even written a review for his book 'INSIDE JOB'. I'll have to check and see. If so, it will eventually get posted here on this blog.

  2. I believe! But I don't believe anything mainstream media or the government tries to tell us. Lies! all Lies!

    I'm not ready to board any space ships any time soon. I already get my anal probing done every three years by a licensed physician (or is he really a visiting alien - because who in their right mind decides looking up peoples behinds is a good career move?)

      I've wondered about that too. What sort of person would want to be a proctologist?

      The only thing I feel I can safely say that I know about proctologists is that they all voted for Hillary Clinton. I mean, obviously they're attracted to assholes.

  3. Great review, Reno!
    Meatloaf and Tater Tots? I knew you seemed familiar.
    Oh, I agree they're out there - just like the Lunatic Fringe ;-)

    1. Thanks, dIEDRE.

      Did you happen to be a witness to "The Phoenix Lights" back in... when was that... like, 1996? '97?

    1. It's a real good one, BR'ER. Nearly comprehensive, and coming from a more secular view than some of the others I've recommended to you. So you get to look at the phenomenon from another angle.

      You won't be sorry having invested time in this book, and you can probably find it used online for just a few dollars.
