Anne and I have had quite an interesting time recently, with regard to anomalous experiences. She is becoming a sort of communicator. Not exactly a psychic, but rather somebody who initiates needed action at the right moment. It started a few weeks ago when we had an apparent missing time experience while out walking. I believe that I've reported...

Today is my birthday, and when I opened my email folder this morning, I discovered the first witness statement I have received in the twenty plus years since my close encounters that corroborates my testimony about my 1985 experiences. The witness was working at the Mohonk Mountain House during the fall of 1985. This establishment, a lovely old...

From December of 1986 until October of 1997, I was in continuous, often daily, contact with the grays. I have written little about it in part because there is no proof and I feel that my words will, for the most part, fall on deaf ears. People simply won?t believe me. More importantly, though, there has been the huge question of how to write about...

So far this season, there have been four times as many tornadoes in the U.S. midwest than normal. These storms have killed nearly 75 people, and caused vast amounts of damage. Meanwhile, Europe is suffering from weather so strange and violent that nobody can remember anything like it. For example, a tornado struck Hamburg, causing extensive damage...

I have always been concerned about what really happened on September 11, 2001, but I have also always thought that the attacks were the result of a combination of determined action on the part of terrorists and official incompetence. I did not really believe that they might have actually been orchestrated by our own government. Indeed, such a...

Ramona was buried today, one of the very hardest days of Art?s life. I am in the odd position of actually being able to imagine how he feels, because I went through it in some small way in the days after Anne fell ill a year ago October. I will never, ever forget how supportive he and Ramona were, and how good all of you were to me. When I really...

Twenty years ago tonight, at approximately three thirty in the morning on December 26, 1985, I heard odd noises and felt as if I had fallen out of bed. I opened my eyes to a scene of such extraordinary horror that I am still suffering from the effects of that moment, two decades later. What I saw before me was a small room like the interior of a...

A few weeks ago, I wrote a journal entitled the Smashed Pillars of Conservatism. This got me branded as a liberal, as if that was some sort of dirty word. Now I'm going to lash out against the left, so it'll be time to be called a fascist, I suppose. The truth is that neither the left nor the right work. In the past, they've both had their moments...

Just in the past two years, there have been two great earthquakes that have devastated populated areas and many other smaller ones that have also done great damage, the Amazon has virtually dried up, the Arctic has begun to melt, the Greenland and Antarctic ice caps have become unstable, and the weather has turned into a complex monster. What is...

American conservatism began as a movement dedicated to the preservation of individual freedom. It was founded on three fundamental pillars: the limitation of government involvement in private life, the containment of corporate power, and the prevention of military adventure abroad.

I must say that I continue to be mystified by the Key. It's so ironic that so much paranormal experience would come to me, a person easily convinced by the paranormal. Before my 1985 close encounter, I was pretty skeptical about such things. Knowing of my tendency to dismiss even the most vividly physical of my unusual experiences, I called my...

A few weeks ago, I discovered a lost trove of lecture tapes, interviews, videos and other audio-visual documents, including some of the most unusual UFO videos ever made, and this week I begin the process of archiving them online. The first thing I uploaded is a lecture I gave in 1988 at the World Affairs Conference at the University of Colorado...

Another summer, another series of weather catastrophes worldwide. Monster rains kill hundreds in India, a gigantic area of Siberian permafrost melts, northern Europe floods while southern Europe experiences its worst drought ever recorded. And now Katrina, which could well turn out to be the greatest environmental disaster in the history of the...

I have gotten in two books and interviewed the authors for upcoming Dreamlands that have, frankly, blown my mind. In all the years I've been doing this journal, I don?t think that I've ever written, specifically about books. But these two have changed the way I think about the world in such deep ways that I feel a need to write about them, in...

There is a significant likelihood that the United States is going to experience a nuclear attack. This attack will probably take the form of the destruction of more than one American city, and will be designed to cause maximum casualties. This seems inevitable because the steps necessary to prevent it have not been taken, and perhaps cannot be...

Finally, the general media is beginning to acknowledge the existence of a problem with the Gulf Stream. But they and the scientists who communicate with them are still bending over backward to minimize public alarm. Here is a typical approach, this one from CNN, based on comments by a senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution...

My wife recently published a diary entry about herviews on the Terri Schiavo case, which elicited a ton of email response. Like my recent journal on the Rapture, or the non-existence thereof, the vast majority of the letters were positive. We receive ten thousand emails a month, and our volunteers try to at least open all that are not obvious...

I have been trying for some time to write the predictions journal that I promised in December, but frankly, the news is so uniformly bad that I have hesitated even to approach the subject. I am no Nostradamus, incidentally. I extrapolate, I do not prophesy. Over my writing career, there have been a few odd incidents of unintentional prophecy, such...

The much heralded ABC special on UFOs has come and gone. Predictably, it was more of the same, a large number of lies sprinkled with a few truths. At least it wasn?t as relentlessly negative as such programs have generally been in the past. But people like Peter Jennings and his producers are cursed with the belief that they can understand?or...

Last Sunday's tsunami will go down in the history books as one of the greatest natural catastrophes of all time. It comes during a period of unusually high earthquake activity worldwide. Of course, since the geological community does not believe that there is any central force that triggers earthquakes, this fact will be attributed to coincidence...

Yesterday, Anne woke up. I mean this in a profound way, new for me, that is unlike anything I have ever seen before. Well, not quite: I remember a few years ago when my sister woke up like this. One moment, the eyes are there, but they are just eyes. The next, something glistens from within, and you see it: the soul has returned to the surface of...

Saturday, October 18 was the most terrible day my wife and I have ever known. It started out as a lovely and very normal day. We went to a movie, then watched a baseball game with our son. At about nine, we went home. On the way, Anne suddenly said, "I have so many wonderful memories of my marriage." I was rather surprised--not that she had good...

A moment ago, we received the shocking and tragic news that Dr. John Mack had been knocked over by a car in London and killed. This is a tremendous personal loss for me and Anne, and for all who this sacred man helped. He was truly a man of courage, who put his reputation, his career and his livelihood on the line for the most scorned and derided...

September, 2004, has been a terrible month on planet earth. We have suffered one of the greatest sequence of storms in recent memory, with devastation from the United States to China to Bangladesh. As I am writing this, the death toll in the United States is close to a hundred. At least a thousand people have been killed in Haiti, 64 in Grenada,...

It?s such an eerie time right now. The weather is changing radically before our eyes, with sixteen typhoons in the Pacific this year and powerful hurricanes still forming, with extraordinary environmental changes that suggest that the planet?s natural system is in the process of a profound breakdown, and far faster than anybody imagine. And now...

My last journal entry drew practically no comment. This was quite unusual. Generally, there's a load of mail, pro and con. I know why it received this silence: nobody wanted to think about what it meant, which is that if a wider mideast war is on the way, we are not going to see it coming because we have lost crucial intelligence resources in Iran...

The outing of Valerie Plame in the column of Robert Novak has now led to the resignation of Jim Pavitt from the CIA. Mr. Pavitt was Valerie Plame?s superior. His work has been devastated by this catastrophic security leak, and he has apparently chosen to resign as a result. The announcement of his retirement is the tip of an iceberg of...

We went to the premiere of the Day After Tomorrow with Art and Ramona earlier this week. It was a fabulous event, with the whole front of the Museum of Natural History turned into an arctic waste via the use of artificial snow. The premiere was packed with celebrities, including the stars of the movie and many others. The film itself is a...

In January of 2003, I published a journal entry on this website in support of going to war against Saddam Hussein. The reason I offered then is even more valid now than it was then. It is that the west needs at least one substantial, proven and stable source of oil outside of its own borders. The stakes are not small: we need this to survive...

As the currents in the world?s oceans show signs of slowing and the initial phases of sudden climate change become noticeable across the planet, ?The Day After Tomorrow,? the mega-movie inspired by The Coming Global Superstorm is due to hit the screens on May 28.
