Whitley's Journal

Art called me about a month ago to tell me that Premiere was using the occasion of his retirement to cancel Dreamland. This did not surprise me. When their parent company, Clear Channel, bought the Matt Drudge program, they were planning to cancel Dreamland. It was only the intervention of Art Bell and his partner Alan Corbeth that prevented...

2003 could bring some dramatic changes in the way we perceive the UFO phenomenon. Certainly, the stage is being set.

Lilith's Dream is in bookstores, officially, on Tuesday, October 8. It will be appearing in stores from today, Sunday. There are only about 30,000 copies going out at the moment, so if you want one, get it in the next couple of days. I am going to be touring for the book, just a little bit. For my schedule, click here. I'll also be on about...

I have been thinking for a while about whether or not I would ever write this journal entry. But I am going to write it, and I?m going to tell you things in it of a kind that I have always kept to myself in the past. For years, I?ve watched in silence as certain things have happened regarding UFOs and the close encounter experience, and these...

We are continuing to publish this article periodically, in view of the many new visitors coming to the site. It was first published in August, 2001, then a second time in Feburary, 2002. This journal entry is about UFO secrecy. It does not follow the usual line about the secrecy being basically caused by arrogant government types who have too...

My family has just had a very difficult and powerful week of struggle. For those of you who read my previous journal entry, on Monday, April 8 my sister went into surgery to get a brain aneurysm cleared up. The surgery went find, but afterward she had a devastating stroke. She was left with extraordinary deficits: her entire right side was...

A week ago Monday my sister underwent surgery to clear up a brain aneurysm. The surgery went fine, but afterward she suffered a massive stroke. She has been left with her right side completely paralyzed, her speech lost, unable to swallow, and her vision severely impaired to an unknown degree. The surgery has an excellent safety record, so we...

It?s Good Friday, 2002, about seven in the evening. Since I was about ten and beginning to wake up to the meaning of the gospel, this day has had profound meaning for me. Today again, the passion has been much in my thoughts. I?ve been thinking about the mystery of compassion as it is revealed in the life of Jesus, and how, for me, it is the...

The historical reality of the Koran and the Bible are under the most serious question in history, and both Moslem and Christian religious zealots are threatening scholars who dare to say that historical and archaeological reality depart from 'revealed truth.' In the March, 2002, issue of Harper's Magazine Daniel Lazare offers an article...

In August, I published this journal entry about the reasons for UFO secrecy. As far as I know and understand, it is correct. I thought perhaps that some new documents had added some missing pieces, but on analysis I see that this statement still holds up. At the time it was published, there was very little response to it, probably because...

I recently had a late-night experience that had an unusual enough texture to be worth reporting as possibly not a dream, at least not in the ordinary meaning of that word. I cannot say that it felt entirely physical, but it was unusual enough, and intense enough, for me to wake up the next morning thinking it might have been a contact...

Christmas is coming, and with it the 17th anniversary of my close encounter experience of December 26, 1985. To this day, it haunts my sleep. My wife tells me that, if she should get up during the night, I will call out to her immediately, and grab her hand when she returns to the bed. I still remember those few minutes as if it had all...

Osama bin Laden has always had a single objective. It is not to destroy the United States, but to gain political power. His objective, in directing his spectacular assault against the U.S., was to cause ferocious American reprisals that would outrage Moslem fundamentalists. He has as his objective the toppling of three governments: those of...

Since Unknowncountry.com began its coverage of 911 and I began reading my 'What I Love About America' statement on the radio, hundreds of people have voted with their feet, quitting my newsletter and abandoning the website. It has been a hard, hard few weeks in our world, beginning with 911 and ending now with the latest FBI warning that...

Before September 11, we were one country. Now we are another. In the old America, we were self-assuredly embarking on what was actually a very strange and forked road. On the one hand, our new administration was promoting globalism and free trade. On the other, it was pursuing a policy of isolation and disengagement. It had more-or-less...

September 11, 2001 was the worst day of all of our lives. In that awful sense, it brought us together in a new way. The images that haunt me--the doomed woman stretched to her limit, leaning out of a window above the flames; the dark shadow that seems to cover the second plane as it races across the skyline filled with people just like me;...

Recently, Dr. Steven Greer, the emergency room physician turned UFO researcher, organized his second Washington press conference designed to spur congressional hearings on the subject that would bring an end to a perceived government cover-up of UFOs. A similar conference held some years ago by Dr. Greer was a disaster. Among other things, a...

I'm worried about the chemtrails issue. There is an element of hysteria appearing in some of the letters and stories I am seeing about this, and I think that we need to be very clear about what is and isn't known for certain. Nobody is sure that chemtrails are even a real thing. That must not be forgotten. There are three levels of evidence....

I have been living with high-level strangeness most of my life. As a child, I took it for granted. When it re-entered my life in December of 1985, I was shocked to my depths.

I am sitting here stunned. I have just found out that the climate is changing much faster than scientists used to think. The extraordinary process of sudden climate change is not somewhere down the road. It is staring us right in the face. What is worse, we are absolutely unprepared. A large minority of the public actually believes the loopy...

Today we inaugurate the forty-third President of the United States. It is an interesting experience for me, because, living here in Texas, I share many mutual friends with George and Laura Bush. There are many familiar faces flashing past on the podium. I remember when my father began to speak of George Bush Sr. as a newcomer, when he first...

Thirty seven years ago today, as of the moment I just put pen to paper, John F. Kennedy was shot dead in Dallas, Texas by unknown assassins, for unknown reasons. From that moment to this, the American Presidency has been an institution in decline. The decline actually started in November of 1960, when Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago stole the...

Two weak candidates, a hung election. Who could have expected otherwise? Not only that, they begin making spectacles of themselves almost immediately. First, Al Gore, foolishly relying on television news as his source, concedes. Then, a few minutes later, he retracts his concession. Does George Bush react in a statesmanlike manner? Perhaps,...

In Texas, you can vote early (and, in the past, often), and Anne and I cast our ballots last week. By mutual agreement, we do not discuss our voting preferences, so I have no idea how she voted. As I read down my own ballot, I voted as I always vote, mostly for people I either know or with whom I share mutual friends. I am not partisan. I...

Congress has just passed one of the worst bills ever devised. It is the Intelligence Authorization Act of 2001, which quietly adds powers to the Executive Branch that will extend unprecedented powers to the presidency and all but destroy the cause of intelligence reform. It could not send out a clearer message: this congress intends to give...

From the first, the UFO question has been shrouded in secrecy. Some blame the US government for this, and that isn't wrong. But it is also true that whatever is behind this phenomenon is also extremely secretive and careful. However, a close examination of the phenomenon reveals that there has been a slow, steady process of accumulation of...

The world's weather is deteriorating much more rapidly than Art Bell and I ever dreamed possible when we were writing the Coming Global Superstorm. At the same time, the media and the government continue to take a wait-and-see posture. Worse, at a time when our world and our country are going to need imaginative and effective leadership, the...

Over the past few years, I have watched Art Bell and his family walk through the dark places of hell. I have seen the quiet courage of heartland America at work, and the deep injuries to the soul that come from being treated to irresponsible attention from the media. Now Art is retiring from radio. For each of us who love him, who respect...

I thought I would like to write a little bit about Dreamland. First, to thank everybody who listens. Second, to say that all the e-mail is really very welcome. But remember that we get about 5,000 e-mails a month, so we can't answer everybody. Also, we are finding that e-mail is not instantaneous, so questions for the show are coming a little...

--New Study Shows Repressed Memories are Real It is two thirty in the morning on March 17. I have just awakened from one of the most disturbing nightmares of my life. In this nightmare, I am in a school. It?s about 1948, and the school is in a large building that is, I believe, on Randolph Air Force Base. Our teacher is Dr. Krause. I am sent...
