This books author, Alfred Lambremont Webre, said to be a graduate of Yale University and Yale Law School and a former Fulbright Scholar, makes some pretty extraordinary claims. He describes ancient beings known as the Archons, who can conduct their activities under the cloak of invisibility, and who feed off negative energy. He explains that our souls are holographic fragments of God, who he also refers to as the Source, and how our souls and the Source are working together to create other planets and galaxies for further soul development.

Described as the founder of Exopolitics, Webre makes other extraordinary claims, including time travel and the existence of a secret Mars colony.

Buckle up my friends, this will be a wild ride to the outer reaches of literary time and space!

This book contains American history that we certainly weren’t taught about in school. America: Nation of the Goddess, by noted British author Alan Butler and American writer Janet Wolter, wife of Scott F. Wolter, host of H2’s America Unearthed, delve into what they describe as a secret cabal of influential “Venus” families whose lineage can be traced back to the Eleusinian Mysteries, to a mythological background with the planet Venus, and with themes commonly associated with the Great Goddess of antiquity. The authors claim that by working with the Freemasonry and the National Grange Order of Husbandry, that the Venus families strived to elevate the feminine principles and aspects of religion and society. The authors assert that they also strived to introduce sacred geometry across the early American landscape, citing examples like the design of the Washington Monument and three obelisks in New York City that are seemingly spaced out to resemble Orion’s Belt, with one of them located at St. Paul’s Chapel, described as our nation’s counterpart to Scotland’s mystical Rosslyn Chapel.

Back on March 25, 1948, on a remote mesa near Aztec, New Mexico, did oil field workers discover a crashed 100 foot diameter flying saucer? This story, long dismissed as a hoax, originally appeared in the pages of a book entitled Behind the Flying Saucers, by a columnist named Frank Scully. It was a best seller until a journalist named J. P. Cahn came along and claimed that it was a hoax, and so it remained for over three decades, until in 1987, author Scott Ramsey located a living witness to the incident.

And so began years of further research and investigation into this perplexing, challenging matter. Did the U.S. Government indeed recover a crashed saucer back in 1948, that was quickly removed to a secret laboratory for further study and analysis? The authors believe that’s the case and believe that they’ve made the case for vindicating Frank Scully’s book as authentic.

Read and decide for yourself.
