Elvis Presley :

Unexplained Power Blackouts

...Chronology Of Events...

1950s / 1960s 

'BLACKOUTS, the extinguishing of all lights in large areas and entire cities due to power failures. UFOs have frequently been seen hovering near power facilities, sometimes prior to or during blackouts. The highest number of such incidents occurred in the late 1950s and the mid-1960s...'

Margaret Sachs The UFO Encyclopedia

August 1962

John Myers, an acquaintance of Marilyn Monroe, reported that soon after her death a light that he always left on in a 'special room', containing a portrait of MM, '..was extinguished of its own accord - nobody had entered the room. He also found inside this locked room a written note for which he could not account...'

Maurice Barbanell He Walks In Two Worlds

November 1965

After the death of Dorothy Kilgallen, there was a big power blackout affecting New York, where she had lived and died:

'On November 9th 1965, New York State as well as portions of six neighboring states and eastern Canada were plunged into darkness for several hours.

Besides the loss of power, the blackout triggered sensors that placed the Mt.Weather facility (to house the president in time of nuclear attack) on red alert.

There were also a number of reports of anomalous lights, and speculation that the blackout may have been related to UFO activity in some way.'

Francis L. Ridge, NICAP website


'..When the music's over
When the music's over
When the music's over, turn out the lights
Turn out the lights, turn out the lights...'

The Doors

July 1968

'..UFOs have often been seen hovering near power facilities. There are a small number but still a little too many to seem pure fortuitous chance, of system outages, coincident with the UFO sighting..'

Dr.James E. McDonald, testimony before the House Committee on Science & Astronautics

December 1972

At Elvis Presley's home, Graceland in Memphis:

'..Our conversation soon turned to his deep love for his mother, and he began telling me the story of how she had died just prior to him being sent to Germany.

...He was in the middle of telling me the story about how he tried to cope in Germany, and that's when it happened.

"Luckily," he was explaining, "I had access to a jeep, and I would sometimes go off by myself and just sit in that jeep and think about her for hours at a time. I remember I drove up into some nearby mountains one night, you know, just to get away, and I was sitting there thinking about her, and began crying. I yelled out, 'Momma'..."

And when he said the word momma, the lights went out in the house. They stayed off for a few seconds and then came back on, and he went on with his story, as if nothing out of the ordinary had happened. He had this look on his face as if he was totally unaware of what had just happened.

He said it a second time - "Momma" - and again the lights went off and came back on as if a storm had struck the house. The second time it happened, Linda came rushing out of her bedroom. "What in the world is going on? Why are the lights going on and off?" she wanted to know.

I did my best to explain to her what had happened, not really knowing myself, and she and I walked back into her bathroom, clearly shaken up, having no idea what had taken place. We've talked about that story several times since it happened and still have no logical explanation of it...'

Jeanne LeMay (As told to Jim Cox) Elvis, Linda and Me  

May 1977

The album 'Lights Out' by rock band UFO was released, including the song 'Lights Out'.

July-August 1977

David Bowie's album 'Heroes' was recorded in West Berlin. Released on October 11th that year, on RCA - the same record label that Elvis Presley recorded for - 'Heroes' includes the song 'Blackout'.

August 16th 1977

'The Meditation Gardens at Graceland where Elvis, his mother, father and grandfather are laid to rest, was originally built for Elvis in 1963 by Anne Lacker and Bernie Grenadier.. it is now the focal point of any visit to Graceland...

According to legend, on the night of Elvis' death, the lights in the Meditation Gardens all mysteriously failed.'

Mick Farren The Hitchhiker's Guide to Elvis

August 16th 1977

Larry King: Did you go to the funeral?

Linda Thompson: Oh, I felt - oddly enough, Larry, every light in my apartment went off. I was the only apartment in my building that had no power. And I lit candles all over the apartment just to pack, just to get ready to go back to Memphis. I went outside, and I said has everybody lost power? No, just your apartment, which I thought was a little strange. And my friends were coming over to console me, and they said, oh, you're lighting candles for Elvis. And I said, well, actually, no, I'm trying to see to pack.

Larry King Show, 16.08.2002

August 16th 1977

'.."Well," she explained in between the tears, "I got a phone call from Lisa. When I picked up the phone, Lisa was screaming, 'Linda, Linda, my daddy's dead!' At that, I threw the phone in the air and when I hesitantly picked it up again I said, 'Oh, no, honey, I'm sure you're mistaken. He can't be dead! Put somebody else on the phone for me, okay?' My brother Sam.. took the phone and confirmed that he had died. Oh, Jeanne, it was terrible! My hands were shaking, and I couldn't believe what I'd just heard! And then, for no reason at all, you won't believe what happened. The electricity in the apartment went out. Can you believe that? It was just like when the power went out when you and Elvis and I were at Graceland that time. Do you remember? It was all so weird. I had to pack my suitcase by candlelight...'

Jeanne LeMay (As told to Jim Cox) Elvis, Linda and Me

August 16th 1977

'..Sometime shortly after I began to pack, all the power went off in my apartment. Not long after that, my next door neighbour knocked on my door and stuck her head in.

"Can I get you anything?" she asked. "Can I do anything for you? We heard the news about Elvis, and we know he was a big part of your life. We used to see him slipping in the back door here."

"Thank you so much," I said. "But, no, I have everything I need. Oh, is your power off?"

"No, ours is fine," she said. "Let me know if you need anything."

I smiled and nodded as she closed the door behind her. As the day darkened into night, I began to light candles to better navigate around my apartment. A few friends came by, including my workout buddy, Deborah.

"Oh, how sweet, you're lighting candles for Elvis," she said.

"Well, not really," I said. "I have to see to get ready to fly out of here, and there's no power in my apartment."

I was not unaware of the strangeness of the situation. It was downright eerie. As the night wore on, and the power remained inexplicably out in my apartment only, I began to consider all the candles for Elvis after all. It was his first candlelight vigil, a tradition his fans have carried out every anniversary of his passing since that day...'

Linda Thompson A Little Thing Called Life

August 16th 1977... and around that date 

'..As many of us talked in the days after the funeral, I began to take note of the many strange occurrences around Elvis's death. Priscilla said she'd been overcome by a strange sense of loss even before she heard he was gone. Almost the minute Jerry Schilling heard the word of Elvis's death out in Los Angeles, a major drought ended there with a rainstorm. After Linda Thompson heard the news, the power went out in her apartment. As we all gathered around televisions at Graceland the night of Elvis's death to see how the story would be covered on the ten o'clock news, the sound went out on the broadcast. As we carried Elvis's casket out of Graceland, a tree limb fell on Ginger Alden's car. Later, Alan Fortas tried to play a tape of "Blue Hawaii" in his car and it jammed. I tried to play a cassette of Elvis's Greatest Hits in my car and the tape broke right after "Can't Help Falling in Love" - the song Elvis ended his concerts with. None of us knew what to make of any of that, but I could never help thinking that all those coincidences added a supernatural twist Elvis himself would have loved...'

George Klein and Chuck Crisafulli Elvis: My Best Man

circa-October 1977

'..Things remained difficult for a long time, but I gradually began to heal, thanks to the loving support from family and friends. I also received numerous condolence letters from Elvis's fans. The letters brought me great comfort, and I answered every one I could. Even when the electricity went out in our home once, I got a flashlight and continued to answer those letters of sympathy. Knowing that so many cared about me gave me the strength I needed to get through the first terrible months without Elvis...'

Alien Sign : Hand Holding Globe

A    Challenge    To    Human    Understanding

On my Globe In Transit website, that was on-line during the first decade of the 21st century, I had a section titled CHOSEN TO SHOW THE WORLD : the JANUARY 25th 1967 ALIEN EXPERIENCE of BETTY ANDREASSON LUCA MIRRORED IN HUMAN POPULAR CULTURE.

The much-discussed Betty Andreasson Luca alien encounter experience of 1967 was originally documented in Raymond Fowler's successful and critically-acclaimed book 'The Andreasson Affair'.

One of the features of the experience documented in the book, which has been (and will likely continue to be) seemingly reflected in human visual culture, was (decades later) dealt with by me in Part 5 of the 'Chosen To Show The World' section of the Globe In Transit website.

Here is how I described this particular aspect of the 'classic' alien encounter on the webpage -

"Description: Return Home, The White Globes

There were two glasslike balls that were held by one of Betty's 'alien captors' prior to the message, and then by two entities that returned Betty to her home. One of the globes was about four or five inches in diameter; the other, perhaps, eight or ten inches diameter. One alien rolled the larger globe - "It rolled right over his hand and sat on the top of his hand" - this manual manoeuvre of the white ball is illustrated in [figure 30 of] 'The Andreasson Affair'. Betty returned to the kitchen of her house with one alien in front of her, one behind - each carrying a white ball. These spheres seem to have been used as control devices to manipulate the Andreasson/Aho family back in the house."

Some examples were shown on that page of 'Chosen To Show The World' of imagery from human culture (art, photography, advertising etc.) that seem to mirror this aspect of the encounter. Numerous visual examples have been found from both before and after the time it occurred.

It is possible that some of the artists who created this notably similar imagery had undergone a similar experience with aliens. If they had previously experienced alien contact/s and witnessed the beings manipulating globes, as Betty Andreasson did, then this feature of a powerful hidden reality would surely be expected to remain in their subconscious mind and influence their creative work, though they may not consciously recall what had happened to them due to alien influence in this regard.

The prevalence of the imagery that is out there of hands - usually human, occasionally other - holding globes [HHG], created during the course of the 20th and 21st century is something that might well be difficult to explain in mundane terms.

Given how many examples of HHG have been created by disparate people around the world, it does not seem unreasonable to link this extraordinary phenomenon discoverable within human art, film and photography to the Betty Andreasson alien encounter of January 1967, and, by clear indication, to the agenda of the aliens that was set out in Raymond Fowler's book.

Kodachrome Slides

The Message Not The Messengers *

Everything leading up to the May 2015 BeWitness event, held at the National Auditorium, Mexico, and since that flashpoint in time, leads me to the consciousness that it was an alien experiment. One experiment within a larger panorama of alien enterprises pertaining to this planet.

Adam Dew; Donald Schmitt; Tom Carey; Jaime Maussan, and all the others who were involved in the BeWitness show on May 5th 2015, were no more or less than messengers playing their parts in the alien experiment. The reaction of foolish, paranoid and vindictive minds is to waste time criticising or condemning these messengers, when the message of the Ray-Kodachrome slides is worthy of exceedingly careful study by those open to infinite possibilities.

Cars or Chemtrails :
Which Does More Harm?

Part 3

Sonia Poulton

Sonia Poulton has a video on YouTube entitled -

Why does the Green Party not want to discuss geo-engineering?

Published on 29 June 2014 (with 5,235 views on 17/07/17), the clip lasts 1 minute 51 seconds. The description posted with it reads -

Journalist Sonia Poulton was happy when she, and cameraman Lee Ryan, came across Caroline Lucas in London. The broadcaster had a question for the former Green Party leader having previously watched a You Tube encounter with Lucas and activist Bob Truther. The response from Lucas proved surprising. Note how she points to the sky, for the benefit of her aide, as she walks off... This, to date, makes two Green Party leaders, including Natalie Bennett, who does not wish to discuss what is happening with our skies.

I don't know if there is any significant meaning to be found in the Caroline Lucas response to Sonia Poulton shown in this video. A search on-line, however, does reveal that Caroline Lucas has done a lot of work to practically deal with the undeniable, deadly problem of pollution caused by cars and other road vehicles. Here are some relevant sections of text from web pages dating from 2010 to 2015......

Caroline Lucas MP website statement: March 22nd 2010

'..The key suggestion of this paper, backed by Green, Labour and LibDem councillors, was to reduce traffic in the centre of town - something many Brighton residents agree is a crucial priority.

Lewes Road, for example, sees some 30 million cars pass through it each year, undermining air quality and contributing to noise pollution.

The Green Party is the only party who are serious about improving the quality of the air, and stopping the 50,000 deaths a year that occur as a result of air pollution - a toll which makes air pollution as harmful as passive smoking.'

MP Caroline Lucas Speaks Out On UK Pollution Problem: July 14th 2011

'Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP for Brighton and Hove has made an appeal this week for more to be done about the ignored issue of pollution in the UK. She condemned the government for continued inaction, despite a law suit being filed against us by the European Commission. Lucas revealed we are in the midst of a hidden health crisis with 1000s of immature deaths happening each year as a result of pollution. Health problems include asthma, lung capacity reduction and heart attacks...'

Green Party website article: May 1st 2012

'Lollipop men and women joined Green Party Leader Caroline Lucas MP and Mayoral candidate Jenny Jones in Lewisham on Tuesday to highlight London's air pollution problem - and the Mayor's deceptive efforts to cover it up...

..the campaign group Clean Air in London last week revealed that the capital had the highest levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2), a toxic gas, of any capital city in Europe in 2010...

The Green Party have issued a 6-minute video on the air pollution problem, entitled 'Air Pollution: A 21st Century Health Scandal'...'

MP unveils £250,000 air quality monitor in Brighton: December 21st 2015

'A new £250,000 'first of a kind' advanced air quality monitoring station was officially unveiled at the University of Brighton by local Green Party MP Caroline Lucas on Friday (December 18).

Installed at the University's Falmer campus, the monitoring station is reportedly the first in the UK dedicated to the detection of harmful, nano-sized particles and their gaseous precursors...


Ms Lucas, the MP for Brighton Pavilion, praised the University's "trailblazing research" and congratulated it for "breaking new ground and having real leadership".

She added: "What will come out of this research I hope will be more pressure on policy makers to take more action to reduce air pollution. I hope the university's research will accelerate moves to improve air quality and tackle this scourge on people's health."'......

Why is Sonia Poulton concerned about 'geo-engineering' and 'what is happening with our skies' to the extent of wanting to confront Caroline Lucas about it, yet apparently unconcerned about what is happening on the ground (the real happenings that Ms.Lucas is addressing)? Could it be that Sonia Poulton's direct involvement in what is happening on the ground requires her to divert attention away from this deadly problem that she, herself (a car driver), is contributing to. Hence, perhaps, she prefers to point her finger at a more distant problem that 'the government' is (allegedly) responsible for?

The government doesn't need to carry on a hidden campaign to poison the atmosphere. The public - millions of human beings on this planet - are willing to do the dirty work on their behalf, by driving cars and other road vehicles; using mobile phones; microwave ovens; Wi-Fi; cordless phones, etcetera. If the government are adding even more contamination in any way, then that is an issue to be highlighted and seriously considered; but, not at the expense of ever acknowledging that the vast bulk of the air quality problem is caused by millions of so-called 'ordinary people', who are keen to indulge in environmentally damaging activities, thereby colluding with big business elites.

When it comes to poisoning of the air, it is not 'the government' and 'chemtrails' that we should be directing most attention to when seeking to solve the problem, it is ourselves.

We are the ones who are 'systematically poisoning our world'.

We are the problem.

Cars or Chemtrails :
Which Does More Harm?

Part 2

David Icke

In David Icke's book 'The Biggest Secret', he focusses a fair amount of attention on the oil companies, and strongly gives the impression that he considers them to be very bad indeed:

'..the double cross symbol was later used by some aspects of the Christian Church and it is the origin of the term to be 'double crossed', manipulated. This has become another symbol of the reptilian Brotherhood and you can see it in the logo of the oil giant, Exxon, controlled by their American managers, the Rockefellers...' (p.159)

'..Standard Oil, controlled by the Rockefellers, was, in effect, the same company as I.G. Farben, Hitler's chemical giant which operated the concentration camp at Auschwitz. I.G. Farben was the heart of the Nazi war machine and it was technological knowledge transferred to them by Standard Oil which allowed Hitler to fight the war. This included the know-how necessary to turn the vast German coal reserves into oil...' (p.254-255)

'..the double square, or eight pointed star, can be seen in the lobby at the heart of the British Parliament and a long list of world police forces surround their badge with the same symbol.. The chevron is another version of this.. You need to look at this as symbolic of two three-dimensional boxes, one above the other, and not as one-dimensional 'ticks'. This is the logo of the Brotherhood oil company Chevron, and the other oil and transnational corporations are a maze of symbols featuring the secret language of the force which controls the world.. Texaco has the pentagram inside a circle with the T square of Freemasonry.. The symbol of Atlantic Richfield Oil (ARCO) is a pyramid with the capstone missing looked at from above.. and Amoco has the lighted torch...' (p.363-364)

'..The ANC government is just as controlled and corrupt as the white one it replaced. Shell Oil, the Babylonian Brotherhood oil company controlled by people like Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, gave a whole tower block to the ANC at the time of the changeover...' (p.131)

'..Researchers like Philip Beresford, the author of The Book Of The British Rich, say that Queen Elizabeth invests in the major corporations like Rio Tinto.. Royal Dutch Shell, ICI and General Electric. This makes sense because these are all pillars of the black nobility...' (p.376)

'..According to Stephen Dorrill in his book, The Secret Conspiracy, Inside The Secret Service In The 90s, Control Risks is the most important of the private secret services operated by the Queen's Privy Council.. One of the companies using Defence Systems in South America is British Petroleum who employ Control Risks. BP is one of the most unpleasant business operations on the planet and a front for the British Foreign Office, British Intelligence and The Crown. British Petroleum is a jewel of the Brotherhood and the Windsor cartels and so it is only understandable that they would use the Brotherhood-Windsor 'security' network...' (p.398-399)
Given that these passages were published in one of David Icke's books, and given that Mr.Icke is a former spokesperson for the Green Party, we might expect that he would be keen to advocate people's use of bicycles and public transport, rather than the deadly option of the car. (Clearly, cars are a deadly option, not only due to their pollution - chemical and noise - and, due to the accidents involving them, causing death and injury; but, also due to their need for fuel coming from - as David Icke seemingly sees it - Babylonian Brotherhood oil companies) 

Yet, the on-line evidence I've seen tends to suggest that David Icke couldn't care less about environmental damage caused by cars. Nor, does he indicate any concern over any ethical-type issues surrounding the activity of driving a car, e.g. 'Brotherhood'/'Nazi'/'Rockefeller'/'Masonic' connections to the production of oil, and, one might suppose, also, inevitably from the Ickean viewpoint, the vehicles themselves being tied up with 'The Brotherhood'.

In addition to the seeming lack of concern for car pollution that his output on Twitter demonstrates, there is also a video on YouTube titled 'David Icke - The Truth, and his car!' Filmed in Ryde, Isle of Wight, where he lives and running for 14 minutes 49 seconds, the uploader describes it like this:

David lets us in to see the reality and not the lies spread by some

Near the start of the presentation, David Icke refutes that he has done it all for the money; that he lives in a mansion, and that he drives a Bentley.

Actually, he drives a saloon car. (He emphasizes this fact, as if to lead us into being impressed at how unworldly and restrained he is in his financial output)

He gets into the car and drives to his house, making barbed reference to it being his "mansion" and to "electronic gates" and a "butler".

After 2 minutes 15 seconds, he gets out of the car, and goes into his flat in a block of flats, with a further dramatic "mansion" reference.

He further states, while showing the viewer around, that he is not doing things just for himself, and not for the money.

Another shorter video on YouTube has Mr.Icke in Alex Jones' car. As with the above-outlined effort, there is not (as I recall) a single mention of the 'Brotherhood' connections to cars and the fuel they run on. Nor, does Mr.Icke express any worry at all about the pollution and the other deadly problems that car driving is responsible for.

Although we might simply shrug this all off as par for the course for a committed car driver - their ability to drive the car when and where they want always far outflanking in their minds any considerations to the negative impact on others of what they are doing - the comparison I am seeking to bring to light here perhaps justifies the attention I've given to Mr.Icke's (seeming) one-track pro-car mind.

Ex-Green Party spokesperson, David Icke's unconcern about damage to humanity done by cars through their toxic emissions.

In contrast to

David Icke's relentless agitated concern about damage to humanity done by the (alleged) toxic emissions of chemtrails. 

I have to wonder..

1) Are the 'chemtrails' really a serious problem?

2) If they are a serious problem, is David Icke keen to focus attention on them, rather than car pollution, because he is a long-term car addict? 

3) If they are largely an invention, or exaggeration, is he focussing on 'chemtrails' as a deliberate distraction from real problems, like cars?    

Could it be that David Icke is really working for the 'Babylonian Brotherhood' by aggressively promoting an almost non-existent problem called chemtrails?

Cars or Chemtrails :
Which Does More Harm?

Part 1

Icke and Poulton Twitter Survey

For more than 10 years, I have encountered on-line references to 'chemtrails'. They are considered by some to be poisonous trails left in the sky by aircraft. Photographs of purported chemtrails proliferate as supposed evidence, provided by those who profess concern for the terrible damage that these aircraft trails are said to be perpetrating on the atmosphere (and all life existent therein).

As the years went by, I came to notice that certain individuals who were loudest in their condemnation of 'chemtrails' were also car drivers. I found it puzzling that anyone could be extremely worried by what 'chemtrails' are (allegedly) doing to the air we breath, yet, seemingly unconcerned about what cars are (certainly, undeniably) doing to the air we breath.

In April 2016, I did a basic survey of the tweets put out by two prominent chemtrail agitators, both of whom, I knew, were also car drivers - David Icke and Sonia Poulton.

A search of the David Icke twitter account for the keyword 'car' found 31 tweets, between May 2012 and March 2016. A search for the keyword 'cars' found 20 more tweets.

Of these 51 tweets referencing 'car' or 'cars', only two had any connection to the terribly serious global problem of car pollution:

Lib Dems : Ban petrol and diesel cars from UK roads by 2040 (7 August 2013) and Paris pollution prompts car ban (17 March 2014)

A search on the Icke twitter account on the word 'pollution' found 15 tweets, including the above 17.3.2014 one and...

Air Pollution : What they are not telling us about the smog

This was the only other Icke 'pollution' tweet that could have had any link to the problem of murderous chemicals being emitted by millions of road vehicles, in Britain and around the world.

A search was also done on the David Icke twitter account for the words chemtrail and chemtrails, with these combined yearly results:

2012 - 19 tweets | 2013 - 28 tweets | 2014 - 7 tweets | 2015 - 1 tweet | 2016 (part only) - 4 tweets

The results of the Icke twitter searches revealed that, between 2012 and March 2016, he had likely tweeted no more than 2 or 3 times on the huge problem of vehicle pollution; yet, had, by extraordinary contrast tweeted no fewer than 59 times about chemtrails!


The other chemtrail agitator whose tweets I searched was Sonia Poulton.

A search of her account for the word car/cars turned up only 3 tweets, yet they vividly reveal her feelings on the subject:

@LisaWhitemore @Emssy82 Potholes create havoc on a car. I am sick of all these shysters taking our money and failing to give us a service 

@alyzande I'm not a gamer but I love racing real cars, though. 

15 years with AA and my first year with @RAC_Care and car damaged during recovery. Witnesses & garage report sent & you deny responsibility?

A search of the Poulton twitter account for the word 'pollution' called up no results.

A search of her account for chemtrail/s found five tweets, including...

I have no idea why people deny existence of weather manipulation #chemtrails. Been going on for decades. Got Govt. docs proving it. (23 July 2013)

‘Sir Cliff Richard's Berkshire property searched by police

No arrests have been made and Sir Cliff, 73, who is abroad, said the allegation was "completely false".

Police said the allegation involved a boy under 16.

The BBC understands it relates to an alleged sexual assault at a 1985 event where US preacher Billy Graham appeared at Bramall Lane, Sheffield.
The allegation is believed to have been reported to police recently.

The search in Sunningdale was carried out by South Yorkshire Police, which told the BBC it did not force entry to the property….’

‘More people have come forward with information after Sir Cliff Richard's home was searched over an allegation of child sex abuse.

The singer's Berkshire penthouse was scoured for five hours yesterday by officers from South Yorkshire and Thames Valley Police as part of an investigation into an alleged sexual assault on a young boy at a religious event in 1985.

Sir Cliff, who was away in Portugal when the search took place, firmly denied any wrongdoing and hit out at the fact BBC journalists were apparently tipped off about the plan.
The broadcaster's head of newsgathering Jonathan Munro said today the information did not come from South Yorkshire Police.

In a statement, the force said: "When a media outlet contacted South Yorkshire Police with information about an investigation, we took the decision to work with them in order to protect the integrity of that investigation.

"Since the search took place a number of people have contacted the police to provide information and we must acknowledge that the media played a part in that, for which we are grateful." ’
