In his recent appearance on Tucker Carlson Today, immunologist and government UFO advisor Garry Nolan claimed to have evidence that government employees, including military members, who encountered UFOs experienced brain damage and that some died following exposure to flying saucers. Nolan had studied the health records of hundreds of government employees at the invitation of Christopher "Kit" Green, a former CIA employee who studied "weird" topics in the 1970s and 1980s alongside his close friends, paranormal researchers Jacques Vallée and Hal Puthoff. Vallée documented some of their involvements in his diaries, published as Forbidden Science.
According to a Vice story last year, Green began studying brain anomalies at the request of the CIA, but he and Nolan lost access to government medical records when so-called Havana Syndrome became a political issue. "I was locked out of all of the access to the files because it's now a serious potential international incident if they ever figured out who's been doing it," Nolan said at the time. Now, he tells gullible reporters like Ross Coulthart and Tucker Carlson that he is a CIA-sponsored brain researcher. Go figure.
Green is once again contradicting Nolan's claims about the evidence for UFO-induced brain damage and death. Green has previously said that he saw no evidence of aliens in the brain scans. Now, in an email exchange with Ronald Pandolfi in Jack Sarfatti's UFO email discussion list, Green reiterated that he found no evidence of aliens, advanced physics, or the supernatural.
Here is Pandolfi's original message:
Let me be clear. There has never been a confirmed death or injury to a USG person to include military intelligence persons caused by close proximity to an alien craft. That is consistent with what I have discussed with Dr. Green. To be even more clear, should I have any disagreement with Dr. Green on a technical matter, I will discuss it with him and come to an agreement before I share any view publicly. Concerning politics, I do sometimes have differing views from those of Dr. Green, but I always enjoy and appreciate his perspective. My reference to Loons and Crooks should not be interpreted on a one-to-one basis with the people you cited. They are views expressed by others including fringe media, and often falsely attributed to known individuals. In such cases, it is those who are reporting the false information who are Loons and Crooks. From a personal perspective, the statements by Dan Smith, often attributed to me, are those of Dan Smith, a Loon and a Crook, but otherwise a really nice guy.
And Green's response:
Ron’s characterization of my findings since reviewing and seeing 300 cases personally since January 2009 all referred to me by Board Certified Physicians is true. No etiologies remain either unknown or requiring magic. Or advanced physics to explain. I wasn’t sure for the first 10 years. In my opinion he is correct. And was from the beginning.
And there you have it.
Meanwhile, former History Channel personality Scott Wolter claims the Catholic Church is attempting "world domination" and will "destroy" American democracy unless "We the People" rise up against Catholicism. He's an unreconstructed 19th century anti-Catholic nativist.
