AMMACH Conference 2013

Here’s my HPANWO TV reportage on last year’s AMMACH Conference: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/ammach-conference-2012.html

The AMMACH Project is only just over two years old, yet in those twenty-seven months it has taken the UFO/conspiratorial community by storm. The Anomalous Mind Management Abductee Contactee Helpline (0795-1752-0813) has created a community of researchers, ET contact experiencers and their supporters, filmed hundreds of hours of interviews with witnesses and built a network of meet-ups and support groups, both closed and open. They’re based in England, but have operated in other countries too, like the United States and the Czech Republic. Their videos have been shown on the brilliant PSTV channel which is broadcast on Sky TV 191. AMMACH’s directors, Miles Johnston and Joanne Summerscales, are two people I have encountered before at other events before I did through AMMACH (see: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2010/12/rendlesham-forest-incident-30th.html and: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/uk-probe-conference-march-2011.html) and they come across as very different characters indeed; but they obviously gel together very well in their working capacity to have achieved what they have.

It was a cold and grim morning as Ustane and I trudged through the Saturday morning streets of Nottingham. The spring of 2013 has been so cold that it’s virtually non-existent, an “Indian Winter”. We approached the venue with curiosity and trepidation because it was The Belgrave Rooms, see: http://www.belgraverooms.co.uk/. This imposing building on Goldsmith Street was built in 1880 and today is hired out for conferences and wedding receptions etc, but just a quick look at the exterior and interior will show that it is a Freemasonic Temple. Of course there are many buildings created by Masons that are no longer Freemasonic centres and have been converted by new owners to other functions, but it appears that The Belgrave Rooms are still actively used by Nottingham’s lodges, see: http://www.nottinghamshiremasons.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=180&Itemid=355. I’ve made an accompanying HPANWO TV video, that will be uploaded shortly, in which I study the very blatant and ostentatious Illuminati symbolism of this building, see: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/ammach-conference-2013-vox-pop.html. Oddly enough Ustane and I had been there before to a Truth/UFO/conspiracy event; in 2009 Lloyd Pye, owner of the Starchild Skull, spoke there. Personally I don’t think it’s very sensible for we in the Truth Movement to hold our events at locations that are in any way associated with the Freemasons. I don’t know the circumstances in which AMMACH organized this conference, except that I heard they tried the Britannia Hotel again and it was not available; but I would have advised them never to consider The Belgrave Rooms unless it was an absolute last resort, or the only option for minimizing ticket costs etc. I was talking to one of the speakers afterwards and they said it “messed me up”. Ustane and I entered the building and were led to a large and elegant room called the “Ionic Dining Room”, a vaulted hall filled with round dinner tables covered by tablecloths. This was far bigger than the small conference room with rows of seats where Lloyd Pye had done his lecture. I think this conference had originally been planned for a smaller room and moved to this larger chamber at the last minute; therefore it took a while for Miles to set up all his equipment. But nobody minded because it gave us longer to socialize. It was great to meet up with friends like Cathi Morgan (see: http://hpanwo-radio.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/programme-25-podcast-cathi-morgan.html) and fellow Critical Mass Radio host Sacha Christie (see Links column) Also my Probe-buddy Dave Morgan was there, and other friends like Ellis Taylor and Ann Andrews, who were speaking. Sadly Colin Woolford was not able to attend; he was very much missed by us all and I’m sure he regrets his absence too. As I sipped coffee in the entrance hall to the venue I was approached by a group of smart-looking young women who asked me to sign a TV disclosure form. I’ve dealt with these kinds of forms before and therefore recognized these people immediately as a TV production crew. I got talking to them and they told me they were from a company called Off the Fence Productions, see: http://www.offthefence.com/. They are commissioned to produce a documentary about AMMACH for Channel 4. Alarm bells rang! I hope Joanne and Miles know what they’re doing. Getting involved with mainstream TV is a precarious business; my own experience in that department is almost entirely negative, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/bbc-77-conspiracy-road-trip.html. However, after talking to them for a while I relaxed; I was quite impressed with how positive they sounded. I’ve often said that even in the mainstream media there’s a limit to what can be forcibly covered up and biased, see: http://hpanwo.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/some-of-them-are-on-our-side.html; these people seemed very genuine. One of them said: “This project has been a real adventure for me, a life-changing journey”. The programme is scheduled to be broadcast in the autumn and I look forward to it; I feel that the quality of this forthcoming TV programme could be a major gauge by which to measure the impact on society of not only AMMACH, but UFO/conspiracy matters in general. At the moment I feel optimistic that Miles' and Joanne's gamble will pay off and it will be a well-composed and fair programme. Time will tell for sure.

(These reports on the speakers' addresses are based on notes I took during the speeches which I've recorded to the best of my abilities. If I've made any factual errors then I apologize.)

Jeff Scott
ET Surveillance and the Military
There’s a common notion among the Skeptics that people who go public with stories about alien contact and government surveillance do so because they’re desperate for attention and want to attract fame and fortune. This is total nonsense, and one look at Jeff Scott should prove that to anybody. Far from being a seeker of the limelight Jeff Scott is a very softly-spoken young man wearing casual clothes and with long dreadlock hair, who appears quite reluctant to appear on stage in front of many people; he is inexperienced in giving live lectures and has not made his public persona a high priority in life. In this way he reminds me very much of Chantelle Piper from last year’s AMMACH Conference. He says he comes from a mixture of Celtic, Jewish and Norwegian bloodlines and sees this as significant. Genetics and alien contact is a big subject, but I’m not sure general racial origins make any difference on their own; specific families however do and I’d be interested to know more about Jeff’s. What’s happened is that for all his life he has been abducted from his home in Reading, Berkshire by the Government in what is known as a “Military Abduction- MilAb”. The earliest one he remembered happened when he was aged four. He was also, as an adult, staying in a hotel in Manchester when he was taken from there by a group of people led by a blonde woman. He had electronic implants inserted into his body through his nose into his brain, a feature Marie Kayali would bring up later in the day. The relationship between MilAbs and alien abduction is one sprinkled with all kinds of theories. Some people regard one as a charade to disguise the other; I disagree with both. It’s particularly fashionable nowadays to claim that all alien abduction is nothing more than “stagecraft” to launder the activities of military abductors; but the more honest and intelligent researchers understand that this is simply fallacious. That being said however, the involvement of the Government and military in alien contact and those experiencing it is undeniable. Jeff is the son of a Ministry of Defence policeman who was responsible for nuclear weapons facilities like the Trident base in Scotland. In Reading there is an old stately home called Caversham Park used by BBC Monitoring, an organization set up in World War II and acts as a link between TV and the intelligence services. According to Jeff it’s guarded by Americans armed with guns and when he tried investigating this place he found himself under surveillance. He was followed by strange people and was then attacked by a man at a party in London whom he identified as a Mossad spy. He was even followed on holiday to Spain and had his luggage tampered with at the airport. Most disturbingly of all, he had his mobile phone replaced by a dummy that matched it in function but gave off a signal many times too powerful, so much so that it gave him a cyst in his mouth and made a lightbulb burst. He says that there is a base in south Oxfordshire near Junction 6 of the M40. This is just by Lewknor where the coaches stop on their way between Oxford and London. There is a major excavation there where the motorway cuts through the peaks of the Chiltern Hills, “the Stokenchurch Gap”, but I’ve seen nothing suspicious there myself. Although the area seems to have a strange microclimate; sometimes it's sunny on one side of the Gap and raining on the other. What's more, a dozen miles further east, just past High Wycombe, the motorway passes within sight of Egypt Wood, part of the Burnham Beeches area that is reputed to be the location of Satanic ritual. Jeff has a very mature attitude to alien contact and understands the point I made above: it is real, but this does in no way diminish the reality and importance of MilAbs. He comes from a region of England that I’ve noticed has particular properties. It is many miles across and covers the southern border of Oxfordshire and into Berkshire as far as Reading. It is populated by people who appear disturbed and demoralized. Didcot, for instance, a few miles north of Reading, is a place where everybody seems miserable and irritable; the staff at the railway station are always rude and aggressive. Another feature of this area is that it contains a large number of large, heavy industrial scientific laboratories, like the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, see: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/nuclear-fusion-power.html, the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and the Diamond Light Synchrotron, see: http://www.diamond.ac.uk/. It’s also reputed to be the location of the Peasemore base, as described by James Casbolt/Michael Prince and Barry King. This is said to lie beneath the countryside at a depth of three hundred feet. It does look as if this region holds some kind of significance in that area and Jeff’s information adds to the evidence. It was a very interesting speech; Jeff was beaten by the clock in finishing, but he ended on a positive note that I wholeheartedly endorse: the key to planetary change is transformation of the collective consciousness of humanity. Kindness and compassion has to take the place of distrust and resentment.

Ann Andrews
The second speaker to take the stand was somebody I know very well and have met many times, Ann Andrews. The point I made above about attention-seekers applies even more to Ann Andrews. She is a gentle and maternal character who lives in a remote farmhouse. She has always maintained that she wanted nothing more from life than to be left in peace with her family and animals to bring up her two sons. She has been forced into the situation in which she finds herself today by her experiences. I myself have visited Ann’s home and can vouch for the strange things that go on there: http://hpanwo.blogspot.co.uk/2007/11/my-trip-to-haunted-house.html. The strange occurrences surrounding her younger son Jason started at his birth and continue to this day when he is aged almost thirty. Most significantly there was an incident when he was a small child in which a huge thunderclap was heard above their house and somebody knocked hard on the door. Jason then went into a trance and began reciting complicated mathematical formulae. To begin with Ann and her husband Paul took Jason to the doctor to try and heal his strange behaviour; they were not originally people naturally inclined to believing in “superstitious nonsense” and did what nearly all parents would do when concerned for their child. It was only when Jason’s psychiatrist failed to get to the bottom of his condition that Ann and Paul very reluctantly began to accept that they might be dealing with the fact that his alien encounters were real; they then approached the late and lamented Tony Dodd, a former police officer turned alien abduction researcher. It was then that Ann began recovering memories of her own alien contact experiences, and also mysterious events surrounding her own father, a Gypsy. Gypsies are people with a great tradition in mystical wisdom and esoteric arts and her father was a horse-whisperer. What's more, as I said above, these things often run in families. Unlike many people in Exopolitics, Ann thinks that the link between UFO’s and other paranormal phenomena, and indeed the spiritual, should be emphasized, not rejected. This I agree with and I’ve always doubted the classic Extraterrestrial Hypothesis; UFO’s are not necessarily nuts and bolts spacecraft, more sophisticated versions of our own Saturn V and Space Shuttle, piloted by flesh and blood aliens, flying here across light-years of space from a planet we could see if we had a good enough telescope. The truth may be very different, and far more interesting. I think studying the UFO phenomenon alongside other kinds of unexplained occurrences is very progressive. There is a definite link between them as John Keel discovered many years ago. Ann saw “ghosts”, including one of her dog, as well as aliens; this is why I called my article about her house My Trip to a Haunted House. She and her family have encountered men-in-black and have taken orb photographs. Interestingly a lot of these photos were taken on disposable film cameras, not digitals. This nullifies one of the main Skeptic arguments: that orbs are simply a product of digital photography. Ann’s family have been often harassed by the authorities, another feature of extraterrestrial contact. Her computer has been wiped and her home broken into. She has more recently had incidents happen in her life that make her think… or hope, that she is protected by otherworldly powers. A recent grassfire near her house was deflected away by a means she still doesn’t understand. Also her son was involved in a terrible car crash that under normal circumstances would probably have killed him, yet he walked away from with a few bruises. After seeing the high strangeness in Ann’s house for myself, along with reading Ann’s story, I find my normally resilient and diplomatic tolerance for the Skeptics strain. Ann is not… not… hankering after fame and fortune. Her connection with the world of the outlandish has caused her much heartache. In her books she reveals aspects of her contact experiences that she does not talk about live because the emotional agony of them is still so great. She is both an ordinary, and extraordinary, lady who has had to adapt her life to a world in which the unbelievable has become everyday. Both she and her family have had to struggle to do this and for them to adapt back would be a huge weight off their shoulders.

Ellis Taylor
A Life in the Daze
See Links Column   
My old mate Ellis Taylor hardly needs introducing to regular HPANWO-readers. He describes himself as an “otherworld traveller”, somebody who from an early age has experienced the worlds normally hidden from view behind what conventional wisdom calls “reality”. I have synchronistically just managed to get hold of a copy of the controversial new book by Rupert Sheldrake, The Science Delusion, (see: http://www.sheldrake.org/B&R/booksuk/) and was reading it on the coach on my way to Nottingham. So I was in a perfect frame of mind to understand Ellis’ lecture. To begin with he explained how science has changed the world so much for the better, it has taught us so much. Ellis is a fan of the American physicist and philosopher of science, Michio Kaku, as I am, and we are certainly not as the Skeptics like to portray us: “anti-science”. In fact it is scientists like Silas Beane who are more and more confirming what we so called “loonies” have been saying for centuries. Beane has described reality as a “grand computer simulation”. Yet Ellis also understands how science in the wrong hands can serve as a tool for suppression and limitation. Interestingly Rupert Sheldrake was attacked by a man wielding a knife, see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TaMvICAoT4 (I’m sure I wrote an article about this at the time but it seems to have disappeared. I must replace it with a new one). Ellis related many of his particular experiences that I have written about before in articles like this one: http://hpanwo.blogspot.co.uk/2009/01/dogged-days-by-ellis-taylor.html and: http://hpanwo.blogspot.co.uk/2010/09/bathing-into-history-part-4.html. The biggest secret, Ellis says, is not just the title of a book by David Icke, but is the true nature of reality, spiritual reality. This is the secret that governments keep from us more than any other; it’s bigger than aliens, bigger than 9/11, bigger than Free Energy, bigger than the Reptilians. Both science and religion, these two apparent opposites, are used to suppress this biggest secret; science says: “It’s mystical nonsense”, religion says: “It’s witchcraft and the Devil”. But I’ve seen how they will put all their “differences” aside and stand side by side, shoulder-to-shoulder, and unite in condemnation of anybody approaching that biggest secret. But there is a dark side to spirituality and the dark side has rallied with hoaxers and plants, the mainstream media playing a role. For Ellis “news” is an acronym: “NEWS- No Evidence Will Suffice”; very good! Must remember that one. It’s a shame because many journalists are taught the Journalists Creed by Walter Williams, see: http://www.mopress.com/creed.php, but everything in the practical reality of modern propaganda breaks this creed. But, as I’ve said above, there are limits on what can be kept from us, even in the most tightly controlled mainstream media. For instance nobody could prevent such an illustrious figure as John Lennon relating his own UFO experience, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jdw4cibPh-U. But then he was assassinated by Mark Chapman, a man whose name means “dealer in war”. Ellis doesn’t think the names of people like his are a coincidence. I enjoyed this latest speech by Ellis as much as I have all of his others; along with the stories he tells every time he always includes something new. He has been speaking out for a long time and was one of the first esoteric researchers I encountered when I first became conspiratorially-aware. 

Marie Kayali
The AMMACH Conference 2013 is dedicated to the loving memory Marie Kayali's daughter Gina who died in suspicious circumstances on November the 2nd last year at the age of twenty. The banner of the conference, which I reproduce with the organizers' permission, is based on a painting she did just two hours before her death. The lovely, colourful butterfly motif is very poignant; it reminds me of the research of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. Kubler-Ross visited many old death row prisons and death camps and saw time and time again that people had been carving pictures of butterflies on the walls and wooden bedsteads etc, as if the image, a classic symbol of rebirth and the Afterlife, had come into their heads just before their own passing. Marie herself has had contact experiences from the age of three at her home in Ireland; blue-suited Nordic beings coming out of the walls of her bedroom. She also saw "Angel Hair" in a field. Nowadays this is a rare addition to the UFO phenomenon, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/football-ufo-in-florence.html. She had another experience aged seventeen at her boyfriend's house when she moved to England. He was so traumatized by it that he had a nervous breakdown and has never recovered. Her surname is Arabic, not Irish, and this is because she was married to a Syrian intelligence agent who is the son of a famous diplomat; Henry Kissinger is a close family friend of the Kayali's. When she was pregnant with Gina she was told she had such a perfect pregnancy that she warranted "assisting with medical research"; something she regretted in later years. In 1998 her daughter, aged about 5 or 6 at the time, saw a triangular UFO. Like Jeff, Marie has also had implants put in her body, a dozen or more in her joints and head. Many of them are inside her brain and cannot be safely removed. However she had her first implant removed in 1966 as a small child. She's had a scan just a few weeks ago at the International UFO Congress in Arizona USA; the implants are still there. What sometimes happens is that even when implants are removed they often come back, with as much mystery as when they first appear. She allowed her examination by Steve Colbern (http://www.alienscalpel.com/) to be filmed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCRIvgA0NLM. Oddly enough Steve and his team had to drive two hundred and fifty miles to get to Congress and they have reported missing time on the way, and on the journey back. Marie has had no identifiable contact with the military and is positive that all her experiences are truly extraterrestrial. I've never had any experiences like hers myself, but I find opinion varies considerably and appearances can sometimes be deceptive. However, as I said above, there's no doubt the reality of both ET contact and MilAbs is true. Marie also revealed another aspect of her contact experiences that is also a common feature of the phenomenon, dating right back to George Adamski and his contemporaries; she was shown images of the planet Earth being destroyed by war, environmental damage and other human ecological crimes. The aliens often stress that these are not predictions, they are warnings. They are what will happen if we do not change our ways and evolve our consciousness to a higher spiritual level. Marie ended her speech with a dig at the media: "They treat UFO's as a joke. Well that in itself makes them a joke" Well said! Take note, Off the Fence Productions. Don't be like the others; break the mould! 

Sarah Goodley and Kate Baxter
The last address was a two-hander by two ladies involved with a new affiliated project AMMACH CHEX- Child Experiencer Reports. I have recently read Jon Ronson's book What I Do in which this renowned conspiratorial pundit pours scorn on the concept of "Indigo Children" and comes close to accusing parents who take the idea of ET contact seriously as virtually negligent, even abusive. In today's Britain, where Social Services will snatch children from the arms of their parents almost on the nod, those are dangerous words; the other side of the story needs to be told. For some reason children with a rhesus-negative blood group are statistically far more likely to be abducted by the State; this may be related to the Royal nature of that group. One of Henry VIII's wives probably had it due to the problems she experienced during pregnancy. Sarah comes from a family in which there have been many stillbirths; a life-shattering experience that I can sympathize with because it's affected my own family too. Her father spent most of his life in mental care and Sarah thinks he was an experiencer. She wistfully spoke about Turkey, a country in which experiencers are treated far better, and today Turkey has a productive UFOlogical community, see: http://www.womeninufology.com/farah-yurdozo.php. Children especially need institutions of support, freedom of expression and belief by parents and other adults. They need to be able to cope with duality because that invariably results. CHEX will provide child-parent workshops, eclectic methods and identification for further support. We're living in a world in which there is a War on Children, there's no other word for it. The State is intervening in child-rearing wherever it can, probably with a goal to breaking up families and replacing it with communal upbringing by a Big Brother government. Children are being hit with multiple vaccines and pharmaceuticals at every opportunity. ET contact experiences are one more way the Government can use to tear their lives apart.
Kate Baxter (I'm guessing that's not her real name) insisted on having all the cameras turned off when she took the stage. She is a serving midwife and if her employers found out she was speaking at AMMACH she'd be instantly discharged. Regular readers will know that I can put myself in her shoes very well indeed, see: http://hpanwo.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/how-i-became-ex-hospital-porter.html. Also for nine years I was a Delivery Suite Porter and worked alongside midwives and obstetricians in the "birthing machine" as she called it. During the Q and A I asked her for more details and apparently they could easily have her on the NHS whistle-blowing policy. I gasp with frustration when people tell me that if there really were secrets in medicine we'd all hear about it because "the doctors would tell us"! Kate Baxter explained how so much of the drugs, medical interventions and post-natal treatments for babies are unnecessary, not only unnecessary but unnatural and pathogenic. In this way she echoes perfectly the research of Jeanice Barcelo; I highly recommend this interview: http://www.redicecreations.com/radio/2012/07/RIR-120708.php. Like Jeanice, Kate bravely speaks out bravely against the artificial and robotic nature of pregnancy and childbirth. Women conceiving babies without a good lover, being forced to work through their pregnancy, being induced, given harmful drugs, the babies not being allowed to be held by the mother and enduring as their first experience of life injections, being laid on cold tables, Jeanice speaks of them having their genitals mutilated. I do miss Hospital Portering, but my feelings are very ambivalent. Being out of it is a huge weight off my conscience! The mechanization of childbirth is a manifest symptom of the mechanization of humanity itself. Miles said himself during the Q and A that natural human beings are on the verge of extinction; we're being wiped out by the Illuminati elite and replaced with a slave race of cyborgs. Useful idiots like Ray Kurzweil trumpet the advantages of transhumanist technology without understanding that it contains the keys to our downfall as a species; and our planet, as Marie Kayali's experiences revealed.

After the Conference was over we all went to the pub for an informal celebration. There I had some brilliant conversations with the speakers and delegates. One of them was a young woman who used to be one of the early AMMACH witnesses, but had asked for her video to be removed after her child was taken into care, so corroborating the portent of Sarah Goodley's and Kate Simpson's. I took out my camera and shot a brief vox pop HPANWO TV video with some of the other AMMACH delegates there; it also contains footage of the venue, see: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/ammach-conference-2013-vox-pop.html I felt extremely tired by then. Conferences take a lot of my energy and the better they are the more tired they make me. Seems strange when all we're doing is quietly sitting down. Luckily Ellis Taylor was staying with me and Ustane and so we got a lift home in his car. I really enjoyed the AMMACH Conference 2013 and I'm very grateful to Miles and Joanne, all the speakers and everybody else involved with organizing it. It was even better than the conference last year, and that was very good as I've said. AMMACH has done a lot of good work and I hope it continues. Another interesting thing, out of the myriad of interesting things that happened that day, was that I was sitting in the auditorium writing the notes that are the basis for this article, and my pen ran dry. The pen was one I've been using for a number of months; it's a only a cheap, grey plastic disposable biro, much like any other. The remarkable, and possibly synchronous, thing was that it had printed along its barrel, the words: Britannia Hotels- Nottingham. Yes, I picked it up and first used it at the first AMMACH Conference last year, and it has lasted exactly long enough to run dry at the second. I've decided to keep the spent pen as a souvenir, along with my programme and ticket.
