Starting in December of last year, the US Department of Defense began officially releasing video of UFO encounters recorded by fighter pilots on advanced imaging devices of various kinds. As soon as it started to happen, I wondered if the terror I experienced in the years after I published Communion would return and sure enough, that’s exactly what seems to have happened.

I am not talking about terror having to do with the visitors. I’ve long since made an accommodation with them. While I wouldn’t deny that they have done things that are terrifying, including to me, my life with them is not like that now. I stuck with it and gradually came to what I have now, which is useful to me on many, many different levels.

No, I am talking about the attacks on me and the oppression of me that was carried out with an official locomotion. I have increasing evidence that it has started again, and this time I intend to speak out about it.

First, of course, there’s this website, which is being constantly damaged and degraded in many subtle ways by somebody who can enter it undetected. There are only two possibilities here: somebody from my service provider is responsible or somebody with a high level of hacking skill is doing it. The reason I say this is that it is protected by one of the most sophisticated firewalls on the market. To enter it, you need either to already be behind that firewall or you need to be able to circumvent it. (No credit card information is kept on the site. It’s not about stealing anything. It’s about making things not work right, in order to frustrate users.)

Now, today, I got some very chilling information. I was recently invited to be on Gaia TV by one of the hosts. I agreed. But then a day later, the producer called me and told me I wasn’t wanted. I wondered why not. I have been led to believe that word came down from the top that "Whitley has been known to tell tall tales." That exact phrase, and that is what has frightened me so much.

The reason is that this precise phrase, word for word, was used by men claiming to be federal officials who visited my doctor right after Communion was published and my film agent. The men claimed to be FBI agents, but who knows what they really were. One of my doctor’s nurses told me that they had demanded my medical records and had said that "Whitley tells tall tales and we need to find out if there’s anything wrong with him." According to the agent’s assistant, he was told that "Whitley tells tall tales and it would be unpatriotic and harmful to the country to set up Communion as a film."

What is so infuriating about this is that I do have a sense of fun. I’ve told plenty of Texas-style tall tales in my life. I learned how to partake of this time-honored tradition at my father’s knee. But I would never tell such a tale about the close encounter experience. Never! It is something that is going to resonate through human history, for God’s sake. I would never, ever tell any story about my experiences that I did not believe to be true, and when I’m not sure, as was the case, for example, with much of the material in the Secret School, I have been careful to say so.

I don’t know if the doctor gave those creeps my records or not, but I do know that the agent gave the project to only one producer. He had just released a film called Ishtar, which was an infamous bomb, and had already been let go when I was sent in to talk to him about Communion. It ended up being produced independently and given a tiny, almost perfunctory release.

And now I hear this same precise phrase, allegedly from Gaia TV. What is so infuriating to me about it is that they have many guests and hosts on who make unusual claims without offering evidence, and my story is among the best and most carefully documented cases of the unexplained in history.

Just to reiterate, I have deposited in the public record medical and psychological tests, lie detector tests and a host of witness testimony in support of my claims. Ed Conroy, with Report on Communion, has left in the record an extremely detailed analysis of virtually every claim I made in Communion, supporting me.

In fact, in all the modern literature of the unexplained, I don’t think that there is another case that even comes close to the level of documentation I offer, or the consistency over now more than 30 years of public life.

As most of you know, I have a functioning implant in my left ear. I use it all the time and I’m glad it’s there. I am, in fact, provably in touch with the visitors and not only that, with visitors who DO have our best interests at heart. Whether they all do or not I cannot know, but I have had these people in my life for at least 30 years and probably more, and I am not only still here, I have been given some truly marvelous insights and had some phenomenal experiences, and I can only hope that the circle will widen.

I’ve been a sort of test bed. Can a human brain accommodate hyperdimensional perceptions? How far are we able to go? I am living proof that we can go very damn far indeed, that, in fact, we have the potential to become a much more potent species at every level than we are now.

And how does the government react? They come face to face with one of the few instances in history that a human being has provably broken through to a higher level of being, proving that we are capable of a glorious future beyond imagination. And what is their response? "Whitley has been known to tell tall tales." Thank you air force or CIA or whoever you are. Thank you, Gaia TV.

What is so maddening and so awful is that I cannot know anything for sure about any of this. But the repetition is very disturbing.

  1. When I first saw advertising
    When I first saw advertising for Gaia TV I was repulsed by it and had and still have no desire to subscribe to Gaia. Maybe it was just too well produced or to commercial. I’m not sure what it is. My gut simply told me Gaia wasn’t for me. And they’ve had a certain person on some of their shows that I deeply feel is a charlatan. So try not to worry about it. Make your own Gaia. Please detach yourself from this that bothers you.

    I like how the bhagavad gita puts it (And I’m paraphrasing): try to do good things, but be detached from the results.

    Thanks, I’ll be praying for you.

  5. Whitley, I agree with Andy,
    Whitley, I agree with Andy, especially about Gaia TV. I checked it out way back when it was launched, and it was way too ‘slick’ for me. Can’t pinpoint that exactly, but it felt more like it was all about taking unusual subjects and tweaking them for the sake of appearances to pull in more of a mainstream viewership…plus make money.

    Also, I think it has to pointed out that you must really be on to something that is so close to the truth in the telling that officials work ongoing to try and silence you. That being said, I think it’s interesting that at breakfast this morning I told my partner that I know that everything here at Unknown Country is being monitored, and I don’t have any illusions about it…And just now I read your new journal posting. In addition, this whole thing about alleged DOD/Tom Delonge ‘disclosure’ that began in December has not set well with me either, and just comes off as manipulative. As for the ‘officials’ attempting to oppress you, you are justified in having some frustration and anger, but then you need to just let it go and get back on track. You are making a difference, just not in the way you would prefer to see.

    Andy, I read the Bhagavad Gita once a year, and I get something new from it each time I read it, as well as a greater understanding of reality. I read the Tao Te Ching yearly as well, and it’s time to read them both again.

  7. So, as I was reading this
    So, as I was reading this last night the thought that crossed my mind is…….’Funny Jewish and Yiddish Sayings.’ I have no idea why this came to mind BUT after pulling up the website below and reading the quotes, I copied over a few that resonated with me.
    http://quotes.yourdictionary.com/articles/funny-jewish-sayings.html

    If God lived on earth, people would break his windows.
    Rejoice not at thine enemy’s fall – but don’t rush to pick him up either.
    If you sleep with dogs, you get up with fleas.

    That is strangely chilling. But may you be comforted, Whitley, for we honor you. Meanwhile, consider the source. Gaia has interviewed a individuals whose claims are outlandish and unfounded, so I consider much of their output questionable; whereas with you, I am confident you tell the truth as you know it.

  13. I am very sorry to hear of
    I am very sorry to hear of the attacks on your website and now the rejection by Gaia, but I agree with the above comments–I don’t fully trust Gaia, either. What really disturbs me, is one of the sites I go to that deals almost exclusively with the afterlife (and has been around for a long time) still has not mentioned your new book, even though they seem to scour the world for such books. Also, a podcast I listen to, that, once again, deals almost exclusively with the afterlife, has not mentioned you or (I assume) asked you for an interview. Both the website and the podcast are run by people who also run a popular afterlife convention, each year. I would have hoped they could have shown the interest in you that you so richly deserve.

    The collective soul seeks more and more freedom, yet there is a force that continues to suppress it time and again. Why? I don’t get it. What are they afraid of? Losing their power? Such a meaningless conflict. That’s the real war going on. Who will win? I am afraid of what Whitley said may come true, in our lifetimes: “Not enough freedom? Extinction.”

    Probably no big loss but still perplexing. UFO/Alien material is all over the place. The question is why still the official secrecy and suppression? I would like to think that the powers that be are acting like children acting selfishly over a prized toy. On the other hand, are they protecting us somehow and have our best interest at heart? And why are you Whitley in particular being singled out? Why don’t “they” want you talking?

  25. I admit to being unfamiliar
    I admit to being unfamiliar with Gaia TV, but then again even though I read a lot, I am somewhat particular about what I will spend my time on. If Gaia TV, after more than 30 years of WS writing, does not know enough about Whitley Strieber that an unnamed source can scare them away from hosting you, then I don’t see what they could have offered. Of course, an author has to sell his books to make a living, and I completely understand that, but these people do not seem to be the kind of folks that really have their act together. Too bad, because their audience would have been treated to an interview with a truly exceptional mind and voice, one that dares to ask questions without expecting easy answers.

    As far as hackers or attackers to the website, the signs are not good. “Something” has been trying to shut you down, you represent a question that is too dangerous to answer. Instead of coming up with an easily explained(even if easily disbelieved)story of strictly alien abduction, you had to go and speak about all that “other stuff”, that most of our religions make reference to but that modern society denies. Funny that we are seeing public disclosure of what seem to be clear UFO activities. This suggests, to me, that there are people/agents/government agencies that are looking to steer this discussion towards the more spectacular but not satisfying, “craft from outer space” and not an enigmatic soul related one. If there is anything I have gotten from WS’s writings over the last 30 years it is that there is a LOT more to all of this than the nuts and bolts stuff. Probably the crux resides in the soul and efforts continue to make sure that aspect is not embraced. Why? I honestly don’t know, but things seem to be happening with a decided purpose, away from an internal source(or external, if we think of both concepts having a common origin–the soul).

  27. WWII bomber crews had a
    WWII bomber crews had a saying that “the flak is always heaviest when you are over the target”. I have had a number of paranormal experiences myself and have always read and watched everything on the subject that I can. I can say that after 30 years of reading your material that you are I believe the closest to the truth. The “Powers that Be” whomever they are do NOT want people to accept that “the Greys” are inter dimensional and interact with humans who have died. If people started to really believe in the Soul and its importance, the World would really change and they don’t want that.

    Regarding Gaia TV, Whitley supposedly tells “Tall Tale”s but not the guy who has elaborate stories about space stations around Jupiter, blue avian ETs, Mayan spaceships and people living inside the Earth. He’s a welcome guest—what a load of BS !!

    Thank you Whitley for having the courage to always say what you believe to be the truth even when it isn’t popular. As great a writer as you are if you were a BSer, you could have written and spoke of a fantastic universe full of different aliens and Federations and made a whole bunch of money and packed lecture halls too. Instead you told the strange and wonderful truth and sadly that shakes up too many people’s version of reality.

I’m sure you’ve had similar thoughts. Whatever the reason its cowardly! Talking openly could be your best shield.

    I am interested that the movie producer had a film called Ishtar. I think perhaps a goddess has been looking out for you. I thought the Communion film was actually very good, and paid good justice to your book in a way that may have been lost elsewhere.

    If the site is still being booby trapped it is likely, as you have alluded to, someone on the inside.

  37. One of the many problems
    One of the many problems extant in human nature, now as in the past, is in taking our individual point of view too seriously. Much natural harmony is disturbed in the human realm by the resulting us vs. them mentality and the belief that Truth can be won through battle. Truth and Falsehood are both realities and the Universe is their playground, and as individuals we must choose our sides, and our weapons, carefully, but no single individual need burden themselves with the weight of the the entire battle.

    Whitley, sorry to hear about the malevolent forces in your life. Still, life is short and when this one is finally done, yours will be a great reward. To persecute and bully others, one must be profoundly lacking in compassion. What might seem perversely enjoyable at present, must turn to a horrified cry in the end. The energy behind that cry is what is needed to drive their evolution. We are all on a journey toward undoing. For now, try to grok that you are the sky and not the the clouds that appear in it.

  43. It is clear to me by now that
    It is clear to me by now that the “authorities” or whoever they are, don’t mind if people keep talking about UFOs, ETs, Life on other planets, etc… It appears that the discussion about advanced technology from another planet or from secret human programs is really being stimulated. What they don’t want is people questioning and trying to understand the true nature of the phenomenon, beyond the “nuts and bolts” interpretation, because this will help people regain some of the critical thinking they have being working to erase for so many years,( with great success by the way). They like to feed ready answers to the public, but they can’t let the questioning develop freely, as it becomes very difficult to control, thus dangerous for them. Their preferred weapon is fear. When it doesn’t work they ridicule the messenger. The fact that you are not afraid or ashamed of sharing your thoughts and experiences publically is something they don’t know how to deal with except by trying to suppress. Keep doing your good work! Love, health and having fun is all that really matters in the end.

  47. My email today to Gaia on
    My email today to Gaia on this issue:

    I am a long-time Gaia subscriber and I love the quality and variety of content you offer. In terms of your coverage of edge topics that you list under “Seeking Truth” I have long felt it to be a glaring omission that Whitley Strieber’s presence is nowhere to found, not even with a single interview by, say, George Noory or Regina Meredith. Stireber’s singular voice and perspective in this field is of vital importance, in my opinion, in presenting a balanced view of these topics. When you began to produce series with people like William Henry and Linda Moulton Howe, I thought Strieber’s presence in some form seemed inevitable.

    I was deeply disturbed, therefore, to read Whitley Strieber’s recent journal entry at his website where he described having been disallowed by the producer from appearing as a guest on one of your programs. (http://www.unknowncountry.com/journal/ufo-disclosures-continue-terror-returns-me). I have avidly followed his work for decades and believe his work to be of major importance to our collective understanding of the so-called “fringe” topics you cover — so much so that the lack of his viewpoint on Gaia I believe makes for a lopsided and biased presentation of these issues on your part.

    I strongly lobby for a reappraisal of Strieber’s appearance by those who determine content on Gaia.com

      Good for you Rajah. I admit I don’t watch Gaia TV but the reasons they gave for cutting him seem really specious. While it’s not easy to believe everything Whitley says, he’s at least as well known as anyone else on Gaia, and at least as deserving to be heard. Let the viewers decide, don’t censure for no valid reason.

    I am a long-time Gaia subscriber and I love the quality and variety of content you offer. In terms of your coverage of edge topics that you list under “Seeking Truth” I have long felt it to be a glaring omission that Whitley Strieber’s presence is nowhere to found, not even with a single interview by, say, George Noory or Regina Meredith. Stireber’s singular voice and perspective in this field is of vital importance, in my opinion, in presenting a balanced view of these topics.
