Donald Trump has a hotline where you can report illegal aliens. Here’s a big news report on the new phone system: dumb alien phone line. Now, you and I know that ALL of the little green men are illegal, but how can you prove it? No papers, no luggage, nothing. Squat. Just a bunch of shiny metal, contrails and blinking red lights. Those guys are small, bug-eyed, and bendy. Illegal aliens go everywhere and fit in many places Donald Trump cannot.
So The Donald got that part of the alien equation wrong. But, he got another part right: LAUNCH A COUNTER-NARRATIVE TO COVER THE TRUTH, a truth, Nick Redfern says, that is far from what many choose to believe. In The Roswell UFO Conspiracy: Exposing a Shocking and Sinister Secret, Redfern finishes the research he began in 2005’s Body Snatchers in the Desert, just in time for the 70th anniversary of that famous – and infamous – crash in the desert in New Mexico. His findings? Well, no spoiler alert here. You’ll just have to read it.
And once you read it, you’ll have to decide – was the government’s cover-up story more believable than the truth? Maybe. Just invent a plausible counter-narrative and never give in, something that Mr. Trump does so well. Create another chaotic story to cover the first chaotic story you made up to cover something you weren’t supposed to do in the first place. Magicians call it indirection. We call it a big fat lie.
So, the American government is a bit like a teenager who, no matter what the activity, is always telling the parents that they are at a movie at the mall. Mom and Dad cry foul and, in the case of Trump, so do the American people. But beware, some made-up stories work too well and steal the past right out from under people.
Enjoy your little green men but keep you eye on story simmering under the story someone is shoving down your throat. Listen for what you don’t hear.
