Where did all the Open Minds Forum members go?

Fri Oct 19, 2012 12:29 pm by Admin

With Open Minds Forum restored now for almost half a year at it's new location with we can now turn to look at reaching out to OMF's original members who have not yet returned home. OMF's original membership was over 6,000 members strong, prior to the proboards suspension, according to the rolls of the time. We can probably safely assume that some of those accounts were unidentified socks. If we were to assume a reasonable guess of maybe as many as 30% possible sock accounts then that would leave potentially somewhere between 4800 to 4900 possible real members to locate. That is still a substantial number of people.

Who were all these people? Some were average individuals with common interests in ufology, exopolitics, globalism, corruption, earthchanges, science and technology, and a variety of other interests. Some just enjoyed being part of a vibrant and unusually interesting community. Others were representative of various insider groups participating in observation and outreach projects, while still others were bonafide intelligence community personnel. All with stake in the hunt for truth in one fashion or another. Some in support of truth, and communication. Others seeking real disclosure and forms of proof. And others highly skeptical of anything or limited subjects. The smallest division of membership being wholly anti-disclosure oriented.

So where did these members vanish to? They had many options. There are almost innumerable other forums out there on the topics of UFO's or Exopolitics, the Unexplained, and Conspiracy Theory. Did they disappear into the world-wide network of forum inhabitants? Did some go find new homes on chatrooms or individual blogs? Did they participate in ufo conventions or other public events and gatherings? How about those who represented groups in special access? Or IC and military observers? Those with academic affiliations? Where did they all go and what would be the best way to reach out and extend an invitation to return?

And what constitutes a situation deserving of their time and participation? Is the archive enough? How exactly do people within the paradigm most desire to define a community? Is it amenities, humanity or simply population size for exposure? Most of the special guests have been emailed and have expressed that population size for exposure is what most motivates them. But not all. Long-time member Dan Smith has other priorities and values motivating his participation. Should this open opportunities for unattached junior guests who have experience and dialog to contribute to the world? How best to make use of OMF's time, experience and resources?

Many skeptics would like to see the historical guardian of discourse opportunity to just up and disappear; go into permanent stasis. They think that not everyone has a right to speak about their experiences and if there is no proof involved then there can philosophically be no value to discourse. I personally would respectfully disagree with them. Discourse has always been the prelude to meaningful relationships and meaningful mutual relationships have always been the prelude to exchanges of proof. In a contentious social environment with regards to communication vs disclosure how do we best re-establish a haven for those preludes? Is it only the "if we build it they will come" answer? Well considering OMF has been largely fully functional over the last four or five months this line of reasoning is not necessarily true. So what would be the best way re-establish this? Your suggestions are sought. Please comment.

Jacky Gleason's Alien Encounter


Jacky Gleason's Alien Encounter

Post by Guest on Thu Mar 15, 2018 1:15 pm

Jacky Gleason and me had a fair amount in common: he was rightist, Catholic (but I'm non-practicing), a paranormal buff, a big fan of Bert Kaempfert, and didn't like challenges.

He had Kaempfert on his show as a guest in '68, and it was the first time I saw him. Gleason was himself  a bandleader (although there is doubt as to his exact role in the recordings), making about 50 albums of romantic music in the '50s and '60s, and using some of the best jazz musicians, including trumpeter Bobby Hacket in the '50s, who had played with Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman. His first album, Music for Lovers Only, still holds the record for the longest stay on the Billboard Top Ten Charts (153 weeks), and his first 10 albums sold over a million copies each.

Gleason had many books on the supernatural (which is often erroneously and confusingly synonymized with ''paranormal''), psychic phenomena, and 1000s on UFOs (I have about 60). He even had his house designed in the shape of  a flying saucer! His interest in UFOs and his friendship with President Nixon, who was his golf partner in Florida, got him to see dead bodies of  aliens at the Homestead Air Base in Florida. This story is told by his wife Beverly and Airman 1st Class Larry Warren, who was involved in the Rendleshsam Forest UFO incident in 1980 in Suffolk, England. In the same town in '56 occured one of the most famous UFO radar-visual contact cases, the Bentwaters-Lakenheath incident. The objects were tracked by 3 ground-based radars and confirmed by the Venom night fighter aerial radar and visually from the plane and on  the ground.

Nixon, Gleason, Kissinger and Merritt

Post by yohansmittenbergIII on Thu Mar 29, 2018 4:56 pm

Like the post and topic, if anyone is interested, Dark Journalist has had a series run about a possible time capsule letter that is in the White House, Merritt, not sure but I think the guy was a special agent or op that Nixon trusted that when the time came or when he thought it was time to get a personal letter out about UFO/Alien and energy info to be released because he (Nixon) knew what was coming (WaterGate). He (Nixon) wanted redemption from the dark stain that the event had cast on him. The only other one then Merritt that knew about the letter was Henry Kissinger. Grant Cameron who I think is a straight shooter has been on the Dark Journalist in which this was talked about recently. Might be worth a look.

PS Henry Kissinger was recently at the White House and spoke with President Trump and spoke highly of him, thought Kissinger might be deep state, not sure but worth a thought if it peaks one's interest.

PPS Merritt is ill and not sure of health and wanted to fulfill the task he was given and they have tried to get in touch with those in the White House.

Kissinger was definitely Deep State. And Cameron is certainly a straight shooter and has highlighted disguised disclosure.

There are so many good interviews on these subjects on You Tube it's hard to keep up.
