ARIZONA, ÜBER ALLES: A recently-passed law in Arizona that requires brown people to present papers when asked by gestapo officers inspired a group of vandals/protesters to “smear refried beans in the shape of swastikas on the state Capitol’s windows.”
Hat tip to our SMiles
The following are the search results of the http://www.mufon.com/ data base for Arizona since 11/01/09 to date. While this sample is in most regards typical of a two-month window, some reports do stick out rather well. Therefore I’ve included the MIB report from 12/20/09, a late report from 2/15/88.
While I find “late” reports rather frustrating (glad I’m NOT the investigator), this one seems interesting due to the “arm’s length” aspect of the reporter and its clear style. Besides that, who doesn’t love a good MIB story?

|Description:||Around 1989 I was working at a restaurant in Scottsdale, Az. I was speaking with a customer and somehow we were on the subject of life on other planets. I recall saying something to the effect of “The odds are that there has to be life on other planets, due to the vast number of planets”. Another customer overheard me say this and said “Do you really believe that”? I said “Yes, I do”. He said “Next time I come in, I am going to show you something”. He had a serious demeanor as he said this. I had no idea what to expect. A few days later he came in and had a brief case with him. This brief case was totally dedicated to this UFO encounter he had experienced. He showed me a map of Arizona, where he had outlined the area that he had encountered a UFO in. It was the Roosevelt Lake area, north of Phoenix. He then pulled out a Polaroid photo he had taken. I stared at that photo for 20 minutes. It is THE most realistic photo of a UFO I have ever seen. And it was VERY close up. The photo was taken from about 50 ft. away. It was taken at night and the ONLY light source was from the UFO itself! It was so apparent that I didn’t even ask if he had used a flash. I was obvious he had not, so I just said, unassumingly, “Why didn’t you use a flash”? His eyes got huge, and he said “Are you kidding! They would have seen me”. The reason you could tell the light was emanating from the craft was because the foliage to the left on the image was illuminated from behind. The foliage was in front of the craft, from the vantage point of the camera. The leaves were black, not green, as would be expected if the light source were from the camera. You could see only the outline of the foliage, not detail, as one would see from a camera flash. The craft was the classic disc-shaped kind. It was gray and metallic looking. The lower portion of the craft was concealed, due to a cliff overhang that it was hovering behind. I would gauge the craft to be about 60 ft. from side to side. The craft was about 50-60 ft. away from the camera-taker. The most fascinating part on the craft was the light on it. There was an orb, about the size of a basketball, that was circling the middle, most wide part of the craft. The orb was pure white in color, with not a tinge of yellow or blue. The reason you could tell the orb was circling the craft was due to the fact that the camera had captured a tail trailing the orb, as would a tail on a comet. So I tell they guy, after freaking out on the amazing authenticity of his photo, that he has to show this to someone. He said “I plan to. There is a professor/ufologist at ASU that is interested in this”. So I see the guy several days later and he said he had taken the photo to the ASU (Arizona State University) guy. He said the ASU professor also said it was the best UFO photo he had ever seen. I see the guy several days later, again, and ask him what the ASU professor guy is doing with the photo and such. He starts acting really weird. He wouldn’t answer me. I asked him again. His demeanor was that he was pissed off. He said to me “I’m not allowed to talk about it”. I said “What? What do you mean?” He said “I’m not allowed to talk about it”. He is really agitated. I can’t resist, so I said “Oh come on”. He said “I’m not allowed to talk about it. Two men from the government showed up at my door and said I am not allowed to mention this again, or I will diappear. They took the photo from the ASU professor and threatened him as well”. Since then I have read much info on UFO phenomena. Interestingly, much of what I have read about MIB, is that they appear at someone’s door, as a pair of two men, to threaten the experiencer. Mind you, his experience was long before MIB, the movie, came out, and MIB became part of general consciousness. I had never heard of MIB at this point. The internet had not taken off yet, so he didn’t research the MIB phenomena to add credence to his story. He didn’t need to anyway, with that photo! It now makes sense to me that these government guys take only the good photos, and leave the junk out there. Thus when the genereal public views the photos, they assume the whole phenomena is people’s imaginations, or pranks. They purposely allow the crappy photos to prevail. If anyone knows who the ASU professor may have been, could you please contact a MUFON representative. I cannot imagine there were many ASU professors/ufologists at the time.|
Men In Black, MIBs or Messengers of Irritating Brainfry, have occupied a significant niche of the popular culture since their first pairing with the UFO phenomenon in the early Fifties.
The term Men in Black (MIBs), in popular culture, is used in UFO conspiracy theories to describe men dressed in black suits, sometimes with glowing eyes or other monstrous features, claiming to be government agents who attempt to harass or threaten UFO witnesses into silence. “All MIB are not necessarily garbed in dark suits”, writes American researcher Jerome Clark. “The term is a generic one, used to refer to any unusual, threatening or strangely behaved individual whose appearance on the scene can be linked in some fashion with a UFO sighting.” (Wikipedia)
In 1963, a book called “Flying Saucers and the Three Men In Black” was published by Albert K. Bender.
Albert K. Bender was running an organization, in 1953, called the International Flying Saucer Bureau (IFSB) and editing a publication called Space Review. In his ’63 book, Bender relates a visit from the MIBs, and appears to have coined the term, at least as we currently use it.
Both the IFSB and the Space Review were suspended after this visit, but as you read this the stories of this type of intimidation are common. Somewhat.
The book also introduced into the lore “three beautiful women, dressed in tight white uniforms.” Like their male counterparts in black, the women in white had “glowing eyes”. For more details of this event, go here: http://www.ufoevidence.org/documents/doc1695.htm.
(I haven’t run across anything about the “Three Women in White”. Anyone?).
As some will already be aware, during the investigation conducted at Point Pleasant, West Virginia by John Keel, there was a series of strange sightings of what some call ‘Men in Black’ as well as a few odd phone calls made to John Keel (and apparently some others) by a man who called himself ‘Indrid Cold.’ By phone, Cold offered some cryptic “prophecies” that had no real relation to the sightings of Mothman and UFO activity going on in that area during1966 & ’67.
Personally, I wonder if the bizarre phone calls from Indrid Cold may have been an example of what Loren Coleman refers to as “Twilight Language”. More on this in another post.
My favorite Point Pleasant MIB encounter? The Man In Black confronting the local reporter/publisher, trying to intimidate, then suddenly attracted to a ball-point pen.
like a pack rat to a lost engagement ring.
Always cracks me up…

In recent weeks, I’ve heard State officials from California to Texas commenting on the increasing anarchy in Mexico. When asked about the growing “blow-over” of murder and mayhem to our side of the border, the answer has been “We’re dealing with it, and we’ve got the facilities to deal with further incursions”.
Oddly enough, other officials, including Homeland Security, will simply state that they “are reviewing and revising plans that are in development”.
Really? What have you got so far?
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) – 1/24/06
KBR, the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton Co. HAL, said Tuesday it has been awarded a contingency contract from the Department of Homeland Security to supports its Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities in the event of an emergency. The maximum total value of the contract is $385 million and consists of a 1-year base period with four 1-year options. KBR held the previous ICE contract from 2000 through 2005. The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to expand existing ICE Detention and Removal Operations Program facilities in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs, KBR said. The contract may also provide migrant detention support to other government organizations in the event of an immigration emergency, as well as the development of a plan to react to a national emergency, such as a natural disaster, the company said.
Yes, the same KBR/Haliburton so loved by our former Vice President, Dick Cheney(Criminal charges pending).
Oh, that’s how it works, eh? Someone’s been very busy lately.
What might those “new programs” be?
There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and guarded, but they are virtually empty. These camps are operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), and should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general’s signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached.
The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons.
Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation.
Project “Endgame” ties all the loose ends together (who comes up with this shit?).
The camps all have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from the detention facilities. Many also have an airport nearby. The majority of the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive “mental health facility” and can reputedly hold approximately 2 million people.

What about the Constitution? The Bill of Rights?
Executive Orders associated with FEMA that would suspend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
These Executive Orders have been on record for nearly 30 years and could be enacted by the stroke of a Presidential pen:
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990
allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995
allows the government to seize and control the communication media.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997
allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998
allows the government to seize all means of transportation, including personal cars, trucks or vehicles of any kind and total control over all highways, seaports, and waterways.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10999
allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000
allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001
allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002
designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005
allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051
specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310
grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049
assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921
allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation. General Frank Salzedo, chief of FEMA’s Civil Security Division stated in a 1983 conference that he saw FEMA’s role as a “new frontier in the protection of individual and governmental leaders from assassination, and of civil and military installations from sabotage and/or attack, as well as prevention of dissident groups from gaining access to U.S. opinion, or a global audience in times of crisis.” FEMA’s powers were consolidated by President Carter to incorporate the…
National Security Act of 1947
allows for the strategic relocation of industries, services, government and other essential economic activities, and to rationalize the requirements for manpower, resources and production facilities.
1950 Defense Production Act
gives the President sweeping powers over all aspects of the economy.
Act of August 29, 1916
authorizes the Secretary of the Army, in time of war, to take possession of any transportation system for transporting troops, material, or any other purpose related to the emergency.
International Emergency Economic Powers Act
enables the President to seize the property of a foreign country or national.
-These powers were transferred to FEMA in a sweeping consolidation in 1979.
-Most of the camps have been constructed or renovated within the past few years.
-Hurricane Katrina, preparation and aftermath, was called an “exercise” by our then Vice President. A shameful loss and shuffling of citizens.
Hmmmmm. So we have an identified plan, the “legal structures” in place to allow it to bear fruit, a growing number of discretely-constructed new “detainment facilities” that could conceivably hold MILLIONS of people.
We also have a growing border problem as things get worse in Mexico. This is certainly due to our border still being OPEN to illegal traffic of all kinds.
Why would our Government build all these camps to accommodate a “massive influx of refugees “when the border is left open?
Instead of preparing for a “massive influx”, why not devote some time and energy to filtering out undesirables, and allow good folks to seek refuge and that better life we used to be proud to offer?
Hey, what were those “Other Programs” again?
Could there be several agendas being worked here?
Yes. There is always the possibility that “Programs” are funded, developed and implemented with outcomes totally different than the stated purpose.
However, let’s remember that to think that there is a conspiracy and dark agenda behind this assumes a certain level of intelligence within the conspirators.
A level of intelligence they might not deserve.
-To think that these things came to pass as a result of greed, favoritism, manipulation, avarice, hubris and incompetence is just as likely.
And I truly don’t know which scenario scares me more.
