A RACE OF GIANTS – FREE ON YOUTUBE

RACEOFGIANTS
Legends speak of Giants that once walked the earth. In America alone there have been over 1,500 newspaper accounts, including 3,781 skeletons of a race of blond-haired giants discovered and exhumed. Where did the evidence go? Did the Smithsonian Institution cover it up?

“There were giants…”

GILGAM
The Ancient King Gilgamesh was regarded as a superhuman. In The Epic he is said to be 11 cubits (approximately 18 feet) tall. He supposedly reigned for 126 years.

RATING:  2 Charley’s
Overall this is not a video. It’s a voice over reading to stock photos, artwork and historical images.  There are no interviews with archeological experts or ground-pounder researchers. But it’s an interesting and very informative narrative over all. Great for listening to when you’re doing chores or driving.

STONECLAD
Giants were reputedly ferocious warriors with
awesome strength and power.

One aspect though that makes Race of Giants a Fortean natural, is its complete dependence on old newspaper clippings for original source material. It’s exactly the same research method Charles Fort used to write his masterpieces, particularly his first book The Damned. Of which this site pays homage to.

SAINT CHRISTOPHER
Accounts of Saint Christopher claim he was 12 feet
tall and had a dog’s head.

The Ancient Giants Who Ruled America:
The Missing Skeletons and the Great Smithsonian Cover-Up
(1st Edition) By Richard J. Dewhurst
AGRULED
A study of the substantial evidence for a former race of giants in North America and its 150-year suppression by the Smithsonian Institution shows how thousands of giant skeletons have been found, particularly in the Mississippi Valley, as well as the ruins of the giants’ cities. Explores 400 years of giant finds, including newspaper articles, first person accounts, state historical records, and illustrated field reports. Reveals the Stonehenge-era megalithic burial complex on Catalina Island with over 4,000 giant skeletons, including kings more than 9 feet tall. Includes more than 100
rare photographs and illustrations of the lost evidence that the Smithsonian has been actively suppressing the physical evidence
for nearly 150 years.

Unearthing the Lost World of the Cloudeaters:
Compelling Evidence of the Incursion of Giants, Their Extraordinary Technology, and Imminent Return
By Dr. Thomas R. Horn and Stephan Quayle
THECLE
Unearthing the Lost World of the Cloudeaters is a book unlike any other, one that demands the Smithsonian to open its hidden warehouses so the history of ancient America can be rewritten! All of this is chronicled by Dr. Thomas R. Horn, and radio legend Stephen Quayle, Following a secret conference with leaders of the Ute Nation, Zuni, and Hopi tribes. Add two more teams of investigators and film crews to the project and the most compelling evidence of giants in America is finally unveiled. This involves pre-Columbian, dragon/giant-worshiping interlopers who traversed the Atlantic Ocean and secret Anasazi routes to corrupt the earliest Americans with portal-opening sorcery. This corruption involved human sacrifices, ritual cannibalism, and technology of the fallen ones.

FETUFOPI
This is actually an audio documentary originally sold as a  two vinyl record set released in 1978.

Included in this collection  are first-hand testimony of abductees whose stories are discovered while placed under hypnosis. High-end production values along with a terrific audio mix of music and effects makes it fun to listen to. What’s nice is that they don’t overpower the narrative.

CAPTURED!
The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience: The True Story of the World’s
First Documented Alien Abduction
by Stanton T. Friedman and Kathleen Marden
(Betty and Barney Hill’s niece.)
CAPTURED
Almost 60 years after the UFO abduction of Betty and Barney Hill, more and more people are convinced that UFOs are real and their existence is being covered up by the government. If you have doubts or questions about the Hill case or alien experiences in general, Captured! will give you the answers you’re searching for. The 1961 abduction of the Hills stirred worldwide interest, primarily because of the book The Interrupted Journey, the subsequent media coverage, and a 1975 TV movie, The UFO Incident. The case is mentioned in almost all UFO abduction books. It also became a target for debunkers, who still attack it today. But the complete story of what really happened that day, its effect on the participants, and the findings of investigators has never been told…until now.

Extraterrestrial Contact: What to Do When You’ve Been Abducted
By Kathleen Marden
KM BOOK
It has been 20 years since the publication of How to Defend Yourself Against Alien Abduction by Ann Druffel. This new book by UFO researcher Kathleen Marden is the handbook for this generation. It is the essential reference guide for those who have experienced contact with nonhuman intelligent entities, families and friends of those “experiencers,” and anyone interested in alien abduction/contact and UFOs.

How to Defend Yourself Against Alien Abduction
By Ann Druffel
ANN DBKC
In 1988 Ann Druffel, who has researched UFOs for 40 years, discovered a little-known fact that had been drowned in abduction hysteria–documented evidence that people have successfully fended off attack by the “greys,” the short, big-eyed aliens now familiar through so much popular media. Using her database of 250 case studies, including 70 “resisters,” Druffel has ascertained 9 techniques that witnesses use to ward off alien entities and even break off abductions in progress. And perhaps even more astonishing, this evidence points to the possible true identity of the greys and their link to the abducting entities of myth and folklore.

Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers: The Truth Behind the Misinformation, Distortion, and Derision by Debunkers, Government Agencies, and Conspiracy Con-men
by Stanton T. Friedman and Kathleen Marden
SFKMBK
The mainstream media has misinformed us for years about UFO studies conducted by highly regarded scientists associated with some of the finest universities in the country. There is significant evidence that the U.S. government has covered up the alien presence through misinformation, distortion, obfuscation, and ridicule. Some prominent, politically connected scientists have engaged in the cover up. And a few professional writers have helped to successfully label any scientists who have been persuaded by the evidence and brave enough to take a stand as unscientific charlatans, fanatics, and kooks.

WAS THE MOON LANDING FAKED? OR WAS THE DOCUMENTARY?

OPLUNE POST IMAGE

OPERATION LUNE – DARK SIDE OF THE MOON
This award-winning film exposes how Stanley Kubrick faked the 1969 moon landing, featuring interviews from many key players in NASA, “Operation Lune” navigates the viewer through lies and truths; fact and fiction. This is no ordinary documentary. Its intent is to inform and entertain the viewer, but also to shake them-up – make them aware that one should always view television with a critical eye.
Amazon Prime’s Blurb.

Odd that when you read the last sentence in the above blurb that you get such good advice considering the source it’s coming from.

The plain truth about this video is, that it’s a total fraud.  Well, maybe that’s too strong a phrase to use. How about an “Homage to conspiracy theories?” But I’ll settle for “Mockumentary.”

Usually after I view a video, I do some in-depth research Google diving to see what other background information I can find about the film. After about all of 10 minutes, here’s what turned up:

RATING: PULLING YOUR LEG CHARLEY
Charles Fort, sporting a fake nose and glasses get-up, hereby awards
“Operation Lune” the very first Pulling Your Leg Charley.

Dark Side of the Moon is a French mockumentary by director William Karel which originally aired on Arte in 2002 with the title Opération Lune. The basic premise for the film is the theory that the television footage from the Apollo 11 Moon landing was faked and recorded in a studio by the CIA with help from director Stanley Kubrick.

From Wikipedia:

“It is finally revealed that this is a mockumentary as the end credits roll over a montage of blooper reels, with the main participants laughing over their lines or over their inability to remember them.”

WAS THE APOLLO 11 MOON LANDING FAKED?
Let’s take a step back here and give a very broad tip of the hat to the conspiracy theorists. Anything is possible, right? The internet, and particularly YouTube, offers up plenty of food for thought on the Apollo 11 cover-up claim. But remember, “One should always view television with a critical eye.” Now where did we read that advice?

ONE MOON LANDING I KNOW WASN’T FAKED.
Bernie O’ConnorEditor, Videos Of The Damned.
Over 12 years ago, I had the honor of interviewing the late Edgar Mitchell, the Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo 14. He graciously consented to appear, via phone, on a paranormal themed radio show I was producing and hosting  for our local public radio station.

On February 5, 1971, Astronaut Edgar Mitchell and Commander Alan Shepard, spent nine hours working on the lunar surface. During the hour or so we chatted, I posed the question, “Edgar, a lot of people claim the whole space program is a big fake, especially Apollo 11. What would you say to them?”

He laughed and answered, “I know the space program is real. I was there, standing on the Moon looking down on you folks. In fact, I took your picture.”
(Unfortunately I do not have a copy of this show.)
