“Alright people, this one’s a big one.” — “Are billionaires and politicians plotting with ETs to run the world?”
“Hidden power — secrets — cover-ups — corruption — you think you know the whole story? Think again!” — “It’s the most far-out, conspiracy investigation yet — a cover-up of an extraterrestrial invasion.” — TruTV “Jesse Ventura’s Conspiracy Theory”
(Spies, Lies and Polygraph Tape) — Ever since TV producer Marisa Kagan contacted me about the creepshow weirdness at Bob Bigelow’s Skinwalker Ranch, I’ve been curious how “Jesse Ventura’s Conspiracy Theory” would spin the tale of aliens and cowboys battling in a remote location in Utah.
“People have been killed …”
It all started when aerospace entrepreneur Bob Bigelow — “a new millenium Howard Hughes … a mysterious, elusive billionaire … who’s building his own private space station” — told the New York Times of the danger from UFOs:
His space stations are not his only interest in space. “I’ve been a researcher and student of U.F.O.’s for many, many years,” Mr. Bigelow said. “Anybody that does research, if people bother to do quality research, come away absolutely convinced. You don’t have to have personal encounters.”
He added: “People have been killed. People have been hurt. It’s more than observational kind of data.”
“I get a lot of calls from a lot of people who want me to investigate conspiracies,” Ventura explains in the voice over, “This one was different from the start.”
“The Skinwalker Ranch: named for the shape-shifting witches of Native American legend.”
In the 1990s, Bigelow funded the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS) to investigate paranormal reports and UFO sightings. One hot-spot of paranormal activity was centered at a remote ranch in Utah. Bigelow purchased the ranch and sent in his researchers to try to determine what was going on.

Veteran UFO investigator Don Ecker told Ventura’s team, “All the evidence, all the data that’s been collected has been locked away by Mr. Bigelow.”
Among Bigelow’s original NIDS advisers were Dr. Christopher Kit Green, a former senior CIA official, and Dr. Eric Davis, a physicist who was tapped by the U.S. Air Force to study teleportation. Davis would later tell STARstream Research about a bizarre telepathic attack that allegedly took place at Skinwalker Ranch.
The story of mind-hacking entities told by Davis was truly disturbing, but another, potentially more explosive rumor had been spreading about an alleged battle between Bigelow’s people and something not of this Earth.
“We have a scientist from San Francisco, Dr. Jack Sarfatti, who claimed he had been told by reliable sources that there was actually an invasion of aliens on Bigelow’s Skinwalker Ranch in Utah, and he claims a number of Bigelow’s men were either killed or injured by the ETs.”
I broke the story about Sarfatti’s tale of a battle at Skinwalker Ranch in my story “Bigelow Aerospace Lethal UFO Extraterrestrial Battle Rumor Exposed.”
San Francisco physicist Dr. Jack Sarfatti claims to have heard the rumor while visiting London in 2004, while in the company of Nick Cook, the well known aerospace journalist from the private intelligence publisher Janes Information Group.
“I was asked by the ‘CIA’ not to pursue the story in 2004, but now Bigelow has (allegedly, it seems) opened Pandora’s Box on the story.”
According to Sarfatti, the rumor of a battle between Bob Bigelow’s employees and otherworldly beings was provided by a mysterious French woman, who was accompanied by a body guard carrying a mystery briefcase allegedly containing “some kind of ‘psychotronic’ weapon based on alien ET technology.”
Following the NASA / DARPA 100 Year Starship symposium, where Sarfatti unsuccessfully attempted to push open the UFO alien visitation topic, Sarfatti dismissed the Skinwalker Ranch alien battle story after speaking to Jacques Vallee, the famous UFO researcher.
“Yes, the French woman’s story to me,” Sarfatti explained, was “a delusional distortion of [Bigelow adviser Jacques] Vallee’s meeting with her in Paris at Simon Daniel’s conference.”
Sarfatti seemed willing to entertain the alien invasion conspiracy after he watched Ventura’s Skinwalker episode.
“I remember now I told the Jesse Ventura people that there was no point me being in the show because what I heard in 2004 was only hearsay,” wrote Sarfatti. “ I did speak briefly about it to Jacques Vallee [a NIDS consultant] as I recall, at the first DARPA-NASA Starship Meeting in Sausalito Jan. 2011 … and he denied the French woman’s version of what allegedly happened at Bigelow’s Utah Ranch: a battle with hostile aliens popping out of a floating star gate with at least two of Bigelow’s private army being killed. Eric Davis was one of Bigelow’s employees at the time and he also leaked the story. This would explain why Eric got so uptight at the Oct 1, 2011 DARPA-NASA meeting in Orlando when I broached the UFO subject followed by Doug Trumbull [special effects wizard on “2001: A space Odyssey”] who backed me up the next day.”

“Who’d be the link between Bigelow, the government, and extraterrestrials?”
We already know Bigelow is associated with Kit Green, the former CIA analyst who contnues to consult to the U.S. intelligence community, and Dr. Eric Davis, the point-person on teleportation technology for the Air Force. And we know, based upon Sarfatti’s account, Office of the Director of National Intelligence and former CIA analyst to the National Intelligence Council Dr. Ron Pandolfi was asking around about Bigelow and his friends, all alleged members of the UFO AVIARY. (Pandolfi went on to investigate research into the high-frequency gravity-wave physics of UFO legend.) The AVIARY was an unofficial group of mostly former intelligence officers interested in UFO reports. Recently it was confirmed that a TOP SECRET government UFO working group secretly met to discuss possible extraterrestrial visitations in the 1980s.
If you believe conspiracy maven Alex Jones, who also appeared on Jesse Ventura’s “Conspiracy Theory,” then retired Col. John Alexander is one BA-D-ASS dude.
“Governor, Bigelow is an unwitting front man,” Jones told Ventura, “The guy who’s really behind this is Col. John B. Alexander … it is insane when you start researching this … Col. Alexander moved here, to head up the paranormal research that Bigelow is into … this is literally the rabbit hole right here … He is probably one of the most scary, living people out there today. He’s the real deal — so watch it! — he’s one scary, son-of-a-bitch.”
If you contact the Federal Aviation Administration about a UFO sighting, they advise, “Persons wanting to report UFO/unexplained phenomena activity should contact a UFO/unexplained phenomena reporting data collection center, such as Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS).”
Alexander told Ventura that he arranged for the Federal Aviation Administration to refer all UFO reports to Robert Bigelow’s BAASS — Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies.
But is Alexander — Bigelow’s “government connection” — more than a consultant to BAASS? Could Alexander be the man behind a secret Bigelow Aerospace DEFENSE Advanced Space Studies (BA-D-ASS)? Is he, to quote, “Bigelow’s Dick Cheney?”
Is Alexander in charge of protecting the ranch — and the rest of the world — from an extraterrestrial alien invasion?
We [Victoria and John Alexander] then met Ronald S. Pandolfi, Ph.D., Director, Afghan Energy Project, Office of the Chief Scientist, CIA, and his wife of two months, beautiful Aliyah Malik Pandolfi and namesake graduate student, Ronnie Pandolfi, at Town Square’s California Pizza Kitchen (pictured). Ron — who knows how these rumors get started? — is widely rumored to be at the core of the CIA’s involvement with extraterrestrials … I have known Ron for many years. He has a sharp wit and dry, amused humor and — this is my compliment — he’s a provocateur to the unstable, weak, conspiracy-minded people — and why not! We share the same theories (though I don’t know if Ron believes in “burning in hell” like I do) and radical opinions on many UFO topics and individuals who swim in its muddy waters.
So, is there a real government connection to Bigelow with Alexander as the go-between?
“Bigelow Aerospace,” Alexander told Ventura, “is a totally privately held company.”
“What’s the story on the Skinwalker Ranch?” Ventura asked Alexander.
“A very strange place,” Alexander conceded. “I’ve been up there but I was never in charge … very strange things happen in the area.”
Then Ventura pushed the question, “You’re not the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain?”
Alexander sheepishly responded, “Heavens, no.”
“Bigelow’s like a sponge, soaking up truths you and I will never know,” Ventura concluded. “Robert Bigelow is an American dreamer … but his connections with government, individuals, other nations, hell, who knows, maybe extraterrestrials … that’s gotta keep us all worried. When corporations take over space, when they’re allowed to spy, haul weapons, even create their own space stations, somebody has got to be held accountable. A conspiracy of silence ain’t the answer. And what’s going on at that Skinwalker Ranch, anyway?”
