I know the news about Clark McClelland, backing up Mitchell’s claim that extraterrestials exist, came out at the end of July 2008, but i have just been trying to assess his reasons for doing so, and find out some more information about him.
For those not up to date, it started with Edgar Mitchell admitting on Kerrang radio (from the UK), that he believed in aliens….please see here for my article on this, and to listen to the audio.
He had however, mentioned this before, in 1998 to The Sunday Times (please see link here ) and also in November 2007 (see link here ) so in a sense this is not new…. Those interested in his website, please go to http://www.edmitchellapollo14.com/ . However, for some reason (why i’m not sure, as this radio station is not well known) it became common world wide phenomena very quickly…
Then at the end of July 2008, Clark McClelland backed up Mitchell, saying that “ I, Clark C. McClelland, former ScO, Space Shuttle Fleet, personally observed an 8 to 9 foot tall ET on his 27 inch video monitors while on duty in the Kennedy Space Center, Launch Control Center (LCC). The ET was standing upright in the Space Shuttle Payload Bay having a discussion with TWO tethered US NASA Astronauts! I also observed on my monitors, the spacecraft of the ET as it was in a stabilized, safe orbit to the rear of the Space Shuttle main engine pods ” (extract from article).
For the rest of this article please see Australia.to “NASA expert claims to have seen ET from UFO standing in shuttle payload bayduring space flight” . It then goes on to state where he has been, who can verify for him, and so on…. although it does say, that he is ready to tell his story, but for compensation.
It seems that Mitchell believes he is legitimate, as he gives us many examples of where he has been, what he has done, and so on (all in this article). This is important, as there is not much information on him, that i can find out. Right at the end of the article above, there seems to be a motive here:
“Most of you are not aware that my Space Program Retirement was DENIED TO ME!! I was told by several KSC high management people to not take a legal action, and that they were working to have my job returned to me with back pay! Yeah, SURE! Thanks to the Legal Gods that I found an attorney who would give me a free consultation. He told me that I had a fixed time limit to file an action against those responsible” (extract from article). Basically, the main thrust of this was that he is broke, and owed money, and by all accounts small changed (i must note so would i be too). Maybe this is nothing (if true of course), but must be mentioned however.
So i’m thinking, wow this is big stuff, but i’m honestly worried; why? can i just take this statement on faith… i’m afraid not. so although interesting, i cannot say “well hell i believe him”.
Do not get me wrong, i believe that UFOs (the small % that is not explained away) are either extraterrestials, or they are a government Black Ops project. However, there is no way of knowing if he is telling the truth.
The timing of this also interests me…. NASA’s fiftieth birthday has just passed, and then these 2 (who have already shown their feelings before, but to little effect), have been getting attention, although to be fair only limited attention. Of course, many theories can be concluded from this…NASA makes you sign a secrecy clause, so you could be in trouble with both them and the government.
Unless this is some kind of program led by the government/ NASA in a round about way, towards educating us to the ETs of this world. Again though, i just feel this an odd way of doing it, if that was the case. Although maybe, they both (or one or the other) were told to make these statements to protect a secret black ops project being tested. mmm, not sure about that either. There are other scenarios too.
I’m not really scratching the surface here, but you see the problems we have here; there is the fact that Mitchell has mentioned this before, but it got nowhere, but now it hits the headlines, why?
We have McClelland, who makes this statement basically in favour of Mitchell, and wants compensation, for the full story, why? and why not wait until he has more evidence. The only worrying thing is, that the more i read this, the more i think of Bob Lazar, and believe me that is not a good thing.
In conclusion, i am not sure what to make of this, although i feel Mitchell has more to offer, and is definately more creditable in what he is trying to say than McClelland.
I am fascinated by what has happened, but alarm bells are ringing; what i would like however, is for a serious debate to take place, not just in the mainstream media, but with NASA and governments, publically about all this… but this is never going to happen.
Sorry if this has come out in a bit of a mess, as i have literally just written out what i feel on the matter…. i will follow this closely and see where it leads us, and update again if i can find out some more….
I would love to hear your views on this… please leave them in the comments section below.
