MUFON Targeted Summer Camp School Kids After Jan Harzan Rejected Call for U.S. Educational Standards Compliance

Vancouver, BC – Exclusive new video published to social media on August 9, 2020, offers viewers one insider’s account of a 2018 meeting held during that year’s International UFO Congress (IUFOC) in Phoenix, Arizona, where alleged pedophile Jan Harzan is said to have rejected compliance with U.S. educational standards as a requirement for Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) national infotainment programming targeting primary school-aged children. Semi-retired U.S. educator Dr. Bob Wenzel Gross spoke earlier this week with Jon Kelly in a two-hour interview for TrueTube News explaining how the former Executive Director’s dismissive posture red-flagged MUFON as an ambiguous player in the trafficking of children to symposiums at U.S. hotels and resorts.

In an August 3, 2020, post to Facebook titled “TEAR IT DOWN AND START OVER: NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT TO REFORM UFOLOGY” Dr. Bob Wenzel Gross wrote “In February 2018, I presented at the IUFOC in Phoenix, AZ. Immediately after my PowerPoint presentation, I was approached by members of MUFON, who were also attending IUFOC. They requested that I meet with them later that day, along with MUFON’s Executive Director, Jan Harzan. As a group, we would discuss ways that MUFON could use education to increase membership in their organization. As a seasoned educator and curriculum specialist, I met with them and offered my recommendations. MUFON desperately wanted to attract younger members.”

In previous correspondence with this reporter Dr. Gross has emphasized that “Getting students involved with MUFON was NOT a secret. I know I wasn’t the only person who was aware of MUFON’s plans. Everybody who attended the meeting in Phoenix in 2018 had input on how to grow MUFON via educating school-aged students.”

During his exclusive TrueTube News interview Dr. Bob Wenzel Gross explained how the 2018 backroom IUFOC meeting with prominent MUFON figures including Jan Harzan unfolded. “They asked me to present what I think needs to be done if they want to go into an educational approach to MUFON and attract school students at a younger age. So I told them if I was doing this and I was serious about it I would develop content standards and try to align them with national science standards and things like that. Then I’d create curriculums and then someone like me or someone else could teach your individual MUFON members that have some kind of background in that how to teach that.

“So I presented it and everyone listened. And then Jan said he wasn’t interested in putting that much time or effort into doing something like that.”

In an apparent IUFOC meeting attendee follow-up email dated July 9, 2018, (whose distribution list names “TRAVIS: The True Story of Travis Walton” Producer Jennifer Stein, MUFON Publicity Rep Bambi Dudley, Associate Professor in the Department of Physics at the University at Albany (SUNY) Dr. Kevin Knuth and Dr. Gross) Phoenix Lights author Dr. Lynne Kitei issued a dramatic call.

“Appreciate you writing up something to assist us in our effort to inspire young people to attend the free events Bob. Terrific! In the meantime Jennifer, thought it might be helpful to contact CAMPS around Philly & NJ, who might want to bring their campers to either the FREE Lectures, Films or both. Just an idea. Can’t hurt to contact them, as that’s where most of the kids in town are right now and they’re always looking for fun activities,” the email explained.

From Dr. Gross’ perspective foreseeable child negligence issues surrounding these initiatives were further amplified by sickening news of the retired IBM senior project executive Jan Harzan’s July arrest on charges of soliciting a minor, what the former Penn State music instructor describes as the “Last straw”. In a July 14, 2020, post to Facebook Huntington Beach Police explained “On July 3, detectives contacted a male by the name of Jan Harzan after Harzan solicited sexual activity from a detective he believed was a 13 year old girl. The suspect solicited the minor to meet for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity, and when the suspect agreed to meet the supposed minor, detectives were there to take him into custody.”

In their response to Jan Harzan’s arrest MUFON terminated his directorship replacing him with Flamingo Air sex tourism proprietor David MacDonald (as profiled by Vice where the article’s homophonic headline alludes to the new executive director’s reputation for facilitating bestiality).

According to Dr. Bob Wenzel Gross “They [MUFON] almost have to shut that place down and take a look at what might be going on. Even though I don’t have any evidence necessarily that something really terrible was going on I think they really need to say “Stop the works here and let’s take a look at what could be going on in our organization.””

Cultivating Self-Knowledge: ‘Swami in a Strange Land’ Author Joshua M. Greene talks God and Beatles

By Jon Kelly

NewsInsideOut.com

Vancouver, BC – An exclusive new video published to YouTube on May 6, 2016, explores the lives and teachings of Krishna and Prabhupada, a yogi from India who founded the Krishna Consciousness movement in the West during the 1960s. Bestselling author Joshua M. Greene recently spoke about his new book “Swami in a Strange Land: How Krishna Came to the West: The Life of A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada” with NewsInsideOut.com’s Jon Kelly. During his one-hour interview the PBS and Disney filmmaker told of an encounter with his teacher at Beatles headquarters in London that convinced him to follow a spiritual path.

Described by the New York Times as “a storyteller who traces journeys to enlightenment,” the director of strategic planning for the United Nations Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders portrayed the 1960s as a period of transition. “We were flexing new muscles, looking for alternative solutions to war and inequality. The message which Prabhupada brought (the millennial teachings of Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita) spoke directly to those issues.”

The former adjunct professor of religious studies at Hofstra University in New York suggested that his teacher’s mission revealed “knowledge of the self as the immortal spark of God, a Divine essence different from the external body and the race/religious background of the body. By cultivating knowledge of ourselves as eternal souls we could know the peace that had so eluded us through other channels: military, economic, governmental etc.”

“All of these teachers were coming into America. The Asian Exclusion Act had been repealed. Teachers from India and Asia who otherwise had no access to America were coming and setting up their shops, their schools and their teachings. There was this marketplace of spirituality in the 1960s.

“Prabhupada among all of those many teachers was the one who insisted that the purpose of yoga, the purpose of all spiritual disciplines is to know ourselves as eternal beings and our relationship with the Supreme Being through love and devotion.”

“There was a universalism to his teachings,” the author further reflected. However he later cautioned viewers, “That knowledge of the deeper dimension of reality is not something you get like a gold ring on a carousel. It is something that is revealed when we become qualified to understand it.”

According to the edition, “In 1965, a seventy-year-old man set sail from India to America with a few books in his bag, pennies in his pockets, and a message of love in his heart. He landed in New York at the peak of the revolutionary counterculture movement of the ’60s, and went on to spark a global spiritual renaissance that led to the creation of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.”

The following partial transcript records one highlight from an exclusive interview featuring bestselling author Joshua M. Greene in conversation with NewsInsideOut.com’s Jon Kelly discussing the new book “Swami in a Strange Land: How Krishna Came to the West: The Life of A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada”.

What were the circumstances under which you first met Prabhupada?

I was a lost child of the 1960s and wondering what it’s all about (Mrs. Jones). At the time I was a student at the Sorbonne in Paris. A devotee who had been there to start a Krishna Center in 1969 said, “My teacher Prabhupada is in London right now. Why don’t you go and meet him? It’s very rare to meet a pure devotee of God.”

I had no idea what he was talking about. But when he said that Prabhupada was living with John Lennon I got on the next boat train to London and showed up at the Krishna Temple (on Bury Place off Little Oxford Street by the British Museum) and walked in.

They were having lunch, this beautiful vegetarian spread. I sat down and they asked me about myself. I said that I was in school studying literature.

“Really. What else?”

“Well, I play organ in a rock band.”

“Really? Come with us!” So we traipsed out and got into this Volkswagen Minibus. Probably the worst car allowed on the roads. We’re rocking back and forth on our way to someplace.

I said, “Where are we going?”

They said, “You’ll see, you’ll see. You’re welcome to Krishna’s band. You’re in Krishna’s band now.”

So we show up about 15 minutes later. They open the door and there in front of me is a door with the number three on it. I’m thinking about three and I’m looking up and down the street when I realize it’s Savile Row.

3 Savile Row: This is Beatles headquarters.

The Beatles were pretty much the wise men of our age. Whatever they were into we wanted to know what it was.

I walked in and we go down to a studio in the basement of the building and there’s George Harrison, stringy as a string bean, hair down to his waist wearing badges. Krishna badge and a Yogananda badge and a Prabhupada badge and he’s got beads around his neck; the whole paraphernalia.

They hand me a harmonium, this hand-pumped instrument and I start playing along as they’re recording an album of Indian devotional music.

I’m thinking to myself, “Okay, let me get this straight. If I hang out with these people I get God and the Beatles.”

“Alright, I’m in!”
