Vancouver, BC – An exclusive two-part video released June 18, 2018, on TrueTube by NewsInsideOut.com (Part I, Part II) captured UFO Classified’s Erica Lukes’ lucid insights surrounding a variety of incendiary UFOlogical questions and commentary from host Jon Kelly. In this episode TrueTube caught up with the former Mutual UFO Network state director for Utah following her emergence as a champion for women’s issues in contemporary UFOlogy. Newsweek reported earlier this year in an article titled “What if Aliens Met Racists?” how MeToo-era MUFON presents an unenticing brand comparable to a dumpster fire of racism and sexism.

During her exclusive interview the “UFOs: The Lost Evidence” cast member explained how researchers dedicated to science and truth have broken formal ties with the network in the wake of their latest scandal, emerging as independent voices pioneering new avenues for discovery and learning. In Part I the Newsweek newsmaker told in morbid uncensored detail of navigating entrenched gender and racial stereotyping said to be common in major UFO media workplaces and social networks. In Part II Erica Lukes explained how an ongoing science-backed research program at Hessdalen, Norway, would be impossible to replicate under the present political climate in Trump’s America.

The discussion ventures further into roles played by the film “Sirius” (2013) and the supposed “Roswell Slides” in for-profit desecration of indigenous native child remains, so-called “Wet Room UFOlogy” implications of promoting torture aficionados to executive roles at the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI) and NXIVM-like UFO cults (along with public vulnerability to cult appeals). Further citations include negligently uncritical mainstream UFO reporting omissions and the Bigelow Aerospace “files-for-cash” scandal that apparently placed one MUFON director of abduction research’s social worker’s license under a state-imposed five-year probation.

Having viewed Parts I and II viewers may agree with the yogic conception of how understanding life in the universe requires a universal outlook, not one constrained by classism, racism, sexism or nationalism. To critics the guest and host offer a collective argument seemingly stating, “Your racist sexist fascistic UFOlogy is defective and will not produce good results.”

According to an online bio Erica Lukes is a UFO researcher and podcaster. She is the former state director for the Utah chapter of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and a MUFON field investigator. She is currently conducting private research on UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) and Parapsychology (the scientific study of paranormal and psychic phenomena).

UFOlogical death of the confidential informant: Erica Lukes full statement and interview

UFO Classifieds' Erica Lukes

Vancouver, BC – A new interview aired on December 7, 2016, features explosive allegations of sexual abuse cover-ups at UFO conferences and cyberstalking of anti-secrecy activists. Erica Lukes, Communications Director for the International Association of UAP Researchers spoke with California MUFON Radio host Lorien Fenton in a conversation that charted never-before-aired grievances that may shock some listeners. Responding to online critics the director’s statements appear to substantiate what Edward Snowden had earlier revealed as components of “psychology-based influence techniques” used by state-sponsored social media trolls on websites such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

UPDATE: Coast to Coast AM’s George Knapp asked Erica Lukes to speak further to allegations of stalking and sexual abuse in an extraordinary radio moment during her interview on the December 18, 2016, broadcast. Coast to Coast AM is the most-listened-to late-night talk radio show said to air on over 600 terrestrial stations in the United States, Canada, Australia and Guam. Stalking and sexual abuse in the UFOlogy community is now international news. Readers can listen to the segment by clicking play on the player below.

 

IAUAPR Executive Director Ted Roe has now openly questioned the practice of accepting UFO-related evidence from anonymous confidential secret witnesses in an Exopolitical climate where ET Experiencers have been elevated to the status of primary Disclosure sources. This inquiry appears to have been met with some incendiary blowback in the form of alleged threats and cyberstalking harassment from participants in social media and online broadcasting. It all began when one of the parties pushing for transparency served as an associate producer in MUFON’s communications department, as Erica Lukes relates in the IRN interview.

In her statement published below, the communications director describes how “Many researchers having dedicated considerable time to the field have then been targeted by a negative faction of debunkers who have been allowed to flourish on Facebook and other social media sites. Under such a regime, people who have come into this field seeking answers are discounted, women are targeted and debased.”

According to NewsInsideOut’s Alfred Lambremont Webre there exists an identity-vetting protocol at Facebook whereby members are required by site employees to submit passports and drivers’ licenses. These documents are surrendered in attempts to persuade the social media giant that members are the people whom they say they are in their profile identity. That other members openly use social media today under self-described pseudonyms in such stringent identity-vetting conditions presents Facebook as a paradox-enmeshed platform of extreme double standards.

The social media world seems in this way like a venue whereby the public encounters what could be described as seeming superuser account holders operating anonymously under a secret covenant with a select group of conspirators whose cultural currency within UFOlogy also appears to supersede that of known flesh-and-blood individuals. The appearance of the UFOlogical cultural superuser bears in this way an unfortunate resemblance to the state-sponsored, site-sanctioned troll operating under an assumed identity, like those described in the Snowden JTRIG documents.

The popular science press of today informs readers of the ways in which trolls are lying sadists and psychopaths. Suggestions of how criminals will proceed covertly appear axiomatic. JFK said that “The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society.” With these ideas in mind a reasonable individual may consider how any person seeking to avoid the appearance of impropriety would not appear in public under the guise of a potential troll.

Exclusive Statement of Erica Lukes: “The past few days have been incredibly alarming for an already fractured community. The blatant misinformation that has spread across the internet has resulted in a mob mentality that seems neither interested in the truth nor in understanding the complexities involved in this situation.

“To date, there has been no proof presented by Mr. Gilles Fernandez to substantiate his claims that Mr. Roe “threatened to out” Isaac Koi. Instead we have seen portions of social media posts that have been given to the public in a deliberate attempt to create an abusive environment to discredit myself, my colleague Ted Roe and the International Association of UAP Research.

“We have received threats of physical harm, blackmail and hacking.

“Both Ted and I have stated numerous times that we value the significant work done by Isaac Koi. He has been an important part of this field for many years and it is a great loss to see him leave. It is very clear that the motives of his associate, Gilles Fernandez must be questioned.

“This current situation has highlighted agendas of people dominating the field whose purpose appears to focus on bullying and abusive behavior. We have witnessed an increasingly negative environment that must be examined if we are to move forward in a cohesive and positive manner.

“Many researchers having dedicated considerable time to the field have then been targeted by a negative faction of debunkers who have been allowed to flourish on Facebook and other social media sites. Under such a regime, people who have come into this field seeking answers are discounted, women are targeted and debased.

“This behavior must end. Discussions of anonymity in a field full of disinformation are valid and needed. If we hope to engage the mainstream scientific community then this among many other issues should be addressed.”

Advancing the Horizon of Human Understanding: MUFON Utah State Director Erica Lukes Interviews Jon Kelly

By Jon Kelly

NewsInsideOut.com

Vancouver, BC – Exclusive new video published to YouTube on February 28, 2016, captures Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Utah State Director Erica Lukes in conversation with NewsInsideOut.com’s Jon Kelly for an insightful 90 minutes exploring consciousness, anthropological, sociological and technical dimensions of experiential contact. The producer of such mini-documentaries as “UFO Canyon,” and “UFO Mountain” emphasized contact as a bridging mechanism linking human society with other civilizations along with what he described as the almost-inevitable expression of advanced behavioral characteristics from within the mind of the experiencer.

Fiercely independent research meets the new wave of MUFON state director seeking access to resources and opportunities to develop effective teams who can participate in advancing the horizon of human understanding. The following partial transcript offers a preview of what listeners can expect to hear from this broadcast that originally aired January 16, 2016.

Erica Lukes: Jon, give us a little bit of background on the UFO and paranormal work that you’ve done and help us understand how we can become better at connecting.

Jon Kelly: My work in these fields emphasizes consciousness development. I was a person who got involved in a very serious yogic meditation path as a young adult. The classical yogic world is populated with all kinds of phenomena, a really long litany of phenomena. There are people who study the Vedas [possibly world’s oldest literature] who say that they contain descriptions of aircraft and spaceships as if those people had high tech.

Beyond any kind of nuts-and-bolts high tech the concepts of Siddhis and occult powers are part of the yogic culture. There’s this expectation that people will have breakthrough experiences when they perform the practices intensively. I’m not just talking about the Hatha Yoga that people enjoy, the athletic posture and stretching exercises that are very popular now. I’m talking about the other seven limbs that Patanjali talked about: Pratyahara, Pranayama etc. All these different practices, the internal practices.

When people do the internal practices as vigorously as they do the athletic work they will be stimulating this very high potential within them. It’s described as a Cosmic potential. When the Cosmic and the human get together there’s a really big party that follows.

When we think about the UFO phenomena we think about the cosmic travellers and the cosmic entities that are living in this multi-dimensional universe with us. There’s a simile. When we feel that our inner compass is guiding us to understand the cosmic within us, that our lives and our experiences in the material universe begin to reflect more of those qualities. We begin to feel that it’s as if there was a cosmic influence in our flow of our everyday experience and that all these remarkable things happen.

I had cited Dorothy Izatt in our earlier call as a housewife who lived here in the Vancouver region and was very successful in taping UFOs on 8mm film, thirty thousand feet of it. Her footage was scrutinized by professors at the University of British Columbia and her work was widely seen on U.S. television during the 1980s. Again, this is just a family person who lives in their home and when they look out the window there’s a UFO and they film it.

We see that this flow of their lifestyle has this cosmic duty. That person is like a bridge to other consciousness and civilizations. In the anthropological world people talk about the shaman as the bridge between society and the natural world or the universe and its potential. The medicine people in Native American tradition, the medicine person as the bridge, that their beingness, their existence embodies this participation in more than one dimension of being.

From those traditional viewpoints with a good medicine person the society would benefit. They would bring gifts to the society for the advancement of the people and the betterment of their quality of life.

The contactee, the person who acts as the facilitator in some way who, maybe just through their storytelling or maybe by bringing others with them to their contact experiences or by filming then publishing their work, they are also in engaging in that kind of bridging work. They are advancing the horizon of human understanding into new and exciting arenas with all kinds of different future potentials. But again the potential that I emphasize the most is the impact on consciousness development; that the contact event serves as a springboard into higher understanding and expanded functionality of mental performance, behavioral performance improvements.

I say that people will demonstrate some of the yogic siddhis. Their talents will emerge. This is part of the UFO literature, that people’s talents, their painterly or musical or other talents manifest in conjunction with their contact experiences.

This is aligned with what the yogis were saying, that the higher virtues can be awakened through contact with very intense consciousness’s, other maybe more advanced beings can stimulate us in ways just through their presence, to excite within us growth and development.

This is where I see the greatest opportunity. As a person who emphasizes the spiritual over many other things, for me, that’s where this leads. But it’s entirely reasonable to say that in terms of material science, there are long-standing claims already. Philip Corso wrote a book about fibre optics coming from UFO crash sites. There is an assumption that there are material science advances that will also, if they haven’t already arrived, they will come through these interactions.

People who are serious about creating legal and political structures that will support the long-term growth and development of human civilization interaction with other civilizations have authored works in the area of Exopolitics. People have put forwards all kinds of policies that describe a society that succeeds in those diplomatic interactions and integration occurs. They envision universal societies and treaties. That vision may be a little too far ahead of where I am in terms of my hands-on experience but it’s obvious for anyone who is familiar with the literature that greater thinkers have anticipated that there are going to be all kinds of potential benefits from that kind of growth and integration.

UFO Classified with host MUFON Utah State Director Erica Lukes airs Friday nights at 4 p.m. PST/7 p.m. EST starting March 4, 2016, on KCOR Digital Radio Network.
