Roswell Information is Slowly Fading Away

Roswell Information is Slowly Fading Away
For 69 years the government and military have been avoiding telling us the real facts about the 1947 Roswell Incident and what actually transpired back then.

     Three things that are inevitable, I suppose, are time, change and progress; and to me, it appears as if all of those are becoming part of the 1947 Roswell Incident.

Time, primarily due to the fact that many of the first-hand witnesses some of us have known for years are no longer with us, due to their senior age taking its toll on them to the grave, and I understand that will eventually be all of our demise. For me, I truly miss some of them due to the relationships I had with them the past 20 years doing Roswell research.

Change, because it is sometimes necessary, while at other times I have to wonder if the change was really beneficial or needed.

Progress could be a means of developing improvement, or moving forward, however, I don’t always agree with that description either. I’ve seen many changes and improvements over the years which I’m not sure should have been classified as progress.

Add to the above three terms the fact that for 69 years the government and military have been avoiding telling us the real facts about the 1947 Roswell Incident and what actually transpired back then. I can’t help but believe that perhaps that’s the government and military plan, when all the witnesses are gone, changes take place and progress moves on, which will leave nothing to reference back to the 1947 Incident. As a 20 year resident of Roswell I’m starting to see that happen. At times it’s frustrating, but I continue to believe that we need to continue searching for answers, even though the answers are becoming more difficult to obtain because of time, change and progress.

The time factor has been one of the toughest realities I’ve dealt with concerning some of the first hand witnesses I’ve known the past 20 years, who are no longer with us. I had long conversations with many of them during the time I knew them, and am hopeful these witnesses will not be forgotten.

A few I’d like to mention are Jesse Marcel Jr., (Intelligence Officer Major Marcel’s son.) Jesse and I have done lectures together, we’ve had dinner together with our wives, and he and I emailed each other frequently. You miss someone like him when they’re gone, simply because of who he was, and the conversations I had with him over the years.

Two gentlemen that I had the opportunity to be around, almost on a daily basis while I was a volunteer at the UFO Museum in Roswell from 1996 until 1998, were Walter Haut and Mortician Glenn Dennis. They were both original founders of the UFO Museum along with businessman Max Littell.

Walter was the Public Relations Officer at the Roswell Army Air Field, and wrote the now famous July 8, 1947 newspaper article for the Roswell Daily Record under orders of the Base Commander Col. William Blanchard. Walter and I had many discussions about his personal life, and his involvement with the atomic bomb group that dropped the bombs on Japan to end WWII. I was also involved with a video recording Wendy Connors and I did with Walter about his career in the military and his involvement with the UFO Incident.

Mortician Glenn Dennis was the latest first hand witness to pass away in 2015 at the age of 90. I am one of the few researchers who has some slight concerns about Glenn’s account of his relationship with the military nurse at the base hospital, the 6’ 2” Captain that threatened him, and the drawing that nurse did of the alien bodies. That information has never been verified. The nurse and Captain have never been located, and the drawing by the nurse has never been found. I did a FOIA request on Glenn and got a copy of his mortician license issued from San Francisco in 1945, to verify that he was in fact the mortician.

Other people I’ve met over the years no longer with us include Sheriff Wilcox’s 2 daughters; Lt. Robert Shirkey, Weights and Measures Officer at the base in 1947; Art McQuiddy, editor of the other Roswell newspaper in 1947, “The Roswell Morning Dispatch”; among several others. With my interest in the 1947 Roswell Incident since the 1980’s, I feel extremely fortunate that by living in Roswell the past 20 years, I had the opportunity to meet some of these individuals. Consequently I put more confidence in what they told me than I ever will those who have been covering it up for the past 69 years.

St Mary's Hospital (Roswell) Before and After
St. Mary’s Catholic hospital on the south side of town was replaced in 1997 with a new and needed Chaves County Administration building.

Roswell Army Airfield Hospital Then and Now
The Roswell Army Airfield hospital in 1947 was torn down before I moved to Roswell in 1996. Today it’s an open field on the base, and there’s nothing to indicate the hospital was ever there other than an old Air Force photograph I located.

I understand the need for changes and replacing buildings, however with an event as important as the Roswell Incident, those old buildings should be remembered with some reference as to what they were, or what took place in and around them. This and future generations will never know what important events took place at those locations.

Base Fire Station and Control Tower Then and Now
With the term progress, my biggest disappointment occurred this year when the original Roswell Army Airfield fire station and military base control tower were torn down. It’s now an empty lot. I’ve not heard anything from the city why two buildings of such historical value needed to be discarded. They were some of the original buildings at the base, and are now gone. Luckily I did take a photograph of them before they were torn down.

At 74 years old I also will be gone some day, and I hope that future generations will somehow know the importance of the people and buildings that were involved in the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident, and not let it pass in time, change or progress.

UFOs and Nukes: The Secret Link Revealed
The film presents declassified U.S. government documents and on-camera military witness testimony confirming longstanding and ongoing UFO incursions at American nuclear weapons sites.

     My recently-released documentary film, UFOs and Nukes: The Secret Link Revealed, was licensed by Gaia TV in late July and is now available to the network’s Video On Demand subscribers. As of this date, it is the highest rated video in Gaia’s “Seeking Truth” category.

One viewer commented, “Wow!! Great job by Robert Hastings in this documentary. Thanks for introducing new facts and different angles on some well known and not so well known cases. Tons of indisputable evidence in this one.”

The film presents declassified U.S. government documents and on-camera military witness testimony confirming longstanding and ongoing UFO incursions at American nuclear weapons sites. Since 1973, I have interviewed more than 150 U.S. Air Force, Army and Navy veterans regarding their involvement in still-classified incidents at ICBM deployment sites, weapons storage areas and test ranges.

According to key ICBM launch and targeting personnel—Air Force Captains Robert Salas, Robert Jamison and David Schindele—nuclear missiles in their underground silos sometimes malfunctioned when a UFO briefly hovered above them. Another veteran—Air Force photographic specialist Lieutenant Robert Jacobs—inadvertently filmed a domed-disc UFO using beams of light to disable a dummy nuclear warhead in flight during one missile test, something confirmed by Maj. Florenze Mansmann, who analyzed the film frame-by-frame.

Given the veterans’ dramatic testimony, which is often supported by publicly-available documents, it becomes clear that unknown observers piloting tremendously advanced aerial craft have monitored and even tampered with humans’ deadliest weapons for decades. Indeed, Soviet Army documents presented in the film confirm that the Russians also endured UFO-related disruptions of their missile systems.

Obviously, these revelations are tremendously important and people worldwide should be made aware of them. If you are a Gaia TV subscriber, please watch the film. If not, you can still rent or buy it at Vimeo On Demand. Additionally, CNN’s video of my livestreamed 2010 press conference and several articles relating to the UFO-Nukes Connection are available at www.ufohastings.com.

UFOs on the Walls of Churches in Romania?

UFOs Over Romania

     As the famous castle of Dracula in Transylvania goes up for sale it is a a remarkable coincidence that featured in my new book is a medieval painting from a church in Transylvania that some researchers believe depicts a UFO (see below).

In Romania, everyday people, especially in the countryside, always considered the heavenly apparitions not as something impossible but as "divine signs" that can happen normally, though rarely. There are countless testimonies in this regard. This belief was reinforced by the fact that the holy characters of the Christian religion, from the Old and the New Testament were seen on occasion coming down from heavens and returning whence they came.

Painting of UFO From Church in Transylvania

In past centuries, when, in Romania, most of the population was illiterate, religious teachings were spread and reinforced by the use of frescoes, depicting biblical scenes, covering the walls of churches both indoors and often also outdoors as well. Even if these scenes evoke ancient events and distant lands, the painters painted men and buildings as they knew them in the environment they lived. Similarly, we can assume that they sometimes painted such holy characters in heavenly vehicles that resemble certain celestial objects that they saw themselves flying in the sky (Comets, meteors etc), or that were reported by witnesses of strange airborne apparitions. In areas with Orthodox religion there are many such representations in a variety of different churches.

The city of Târgovişte was the capital of Walachia for several centuries. The construction of the Princely Church in the city was completed in 1583. The frescoes inside have not been repainted but only retouched with all of the original figures and objects remaining exactly the same. As the Romanian journalist Gabriel Tudor noted, on the west wall of the nave, the fresco depicting the moment of receiving the tablets of the Law by Moses on Mount Sinai (the ten commandments), we see a character not mentioned in the Bible: depicted as an angel and placed between two concentric circles, looking as if it had just come out to watch the proceedings. What are those two circles? In any case, surely not clouds which are clearly represented in the nearby paintings in a completely different manner. Also they can not be stars or the moon, because on the same fresco the sun is seen, whose rays are prominently depicted to draw attention that the scene takes place in broad daylight. Could it be that the two circles are a graphic representation, in a primitive manner, of a disc-shaped UFO with a domed top, which the anonymous painter, having not a very good capacity to represent things in a three-dimensional perspective, drew as a circle inside another circle?

The writer and researcher of mythology Victor Kernbach (1923-1995), in his book “Enigmele miturilor astrale” (Riddles of astral myths), detailed that similar frescoes have been in churches from Bucharest as the (old) “Saint Spiridon” and “Bucur”. Unfortunately, the first was demolished under the communist regime, but the second exists today and the pictorial representations are of the same type as those at the Princely Church of Târgovişte.

As the Romania author Călin Turcu (1942-2006) noted in his book “Extratereștrii în România” (Aliens in Romania), “On the walls of the chapel Lainici (Gorj County) can be distinguished a picture quite different from the others. The drawing, done in the early seventeenth century and representing the “Annunciation”, depicts, above the Archangel Gabriel and the Virgin Mary, a heavenly “vehicle” with the shape of a double balloon which again can not be a cloud. The flying object ends with a narrow open tube, where red streaks appear to burst and absorbed behind by a red cloud.

On the walls of Tutana monastery (Argeş county), built in 1577, is depicted an “astronaut”, equipped for space flight. It is by no means an earthly character. Images such as those presented above are reported not only in Romania but also in other countries of the Orthodox faith, as in the Decani monastery in Kosovo and on a number of Russian religious icons.

But the paintings with UFOs are not restricted only to the Orthodox churches. One such painting exists also in a Protestant church, in the centre of Romania. Gili Schechter and Hannan Sabbath, from the Israeli Extraterrestrials and UFOs Research Association, commented in an article of a photo of a mural fresco in the Monastery Church, not far from the Clock Tower in the city of Sighişoara (Transylvania). The photo reproduced in the article was made by Cătălina Borta. Under the image is written in German, a passage from Psalm 130, 7: “Israel trust the Lord!” In the image is a large building, possibly a church, above which floats, slightly oblique, a large disc-shaped object, divided in to about 10 large sections. From the centre of the disc pointing down is a sort of spike. Above the bright object is a short column on which you see other objects that are hard to identify.

UFO On Coin
The authors could not find who did the painting, nor when. However the text can not date before Luther had translated and published, in 1534, the Bible in German. The authors also noted that the same disc hovering, diagonally divided into sectors and with the stick underneath, appears on a number of medals from the seventeenth century, probably chips used in gambling. It issued its opinion that these objects represent the cartwheel described in Ezekiel's vision.

A similar picture exists in Liber Prodigiorum, a book, written by Julius Obsequens, a fourth-century Roman historian. But the book, which describes the unusual heavenly appearances over Rome, was printed, with engravings added, only in 1552. The authors noted some differences between Sighişoara painting and the objects on the medals; for example, these have almost all a circle of stars on the circumference, while they are not on the object depicted in Sighişoara.

Are these paintings depictions of medieval UFO sightings or do they have a much more mundane and simpler explanation ? As an academic and a UFO researcher I must admit that the images on these paintings are certainly worth a second look and we should not rule out the possibility that they do depict something that today would be described as a UFO.
