"The evil Spirit, the evil Demon, the evil Ghost, the evil Devil,
From the earth have come forth; From the Underworld unto the land they have come forth;
In heaven they are unknown, On earth they are not understood, They neither stand nor sit, Nor eat nor drink." -From an ancient Babylonian Tablet "CC," Vol.II.

Ever since my commercial radio career has been put on hold it seems that I have never been busier. I have been called upon numerous times to speak at colleges and at fund raisers. I am always curious as to how I appear to people who are not used to hearing a guy mingling non-traditional views with politics and religious dogma.

Either I am a freak show, or someone actually thinks I am on to something.

I always hope that it is the latter but I think it is a little of both.

I recently commented about how I am seeing the world these days. I asked a crowd at a local bar if they had ever rode in a car with a person who is just a little drunk.

There were a few chuckles and there were a few claps. I told them that there have been times when I, too, have been with a friend that has maybe had a little too much to drink and that I have sat in the passenger seat white knuckled and worried that I wouldn't make it home in one piece.

Once we arrive at our destination we breathe a sigh of relief that we made it. We forget all about the idea that the drive could have been our last or that our destination would have been the final one. We say good night to our friend and we never stop and think that it was stupid to even participate in such behavior.

We don't think about what could have happened, what dangers we face when we are careless.

I said to the audience that this is how I am viewing the world today. We are passengers in a car that is being driven by a drunk and careless driver that we are supposed to trust.

The media tries to simplify our world into mini sound bites and visuals. They neatly put every issue and every crisis into a box and beam it into your home. There are stories about struggles against all odds, miraculous births, untimely deaths, and global conflict.

I wonder if it ever occurs to the passive viewer that our planet is far more complicated than what they see on the screen? Or that a thirty-minute news feed can't possibly give them perspective on how the daily routine is affected by not only those things we perceive, but by those things that are entirely imperceptible.

While you go about your daily routine, you probably do not stop to think about the cycle of life and death. Try to picture the inhabitants of earth as a giant herd of cattle. Each cow has a purpose in the herd. Many get the privilege of just grazing and chewing their cud. Some are breeders; others are used for resources like milk, cheese and butter. There are others that are thinned out in order to keep the population at a manageable size.

"It is estimated that every second more than twenty-eight people are born and ten die; that every hour, more than eleven-thousand newborns cry out. Each day more than 1 million human conceptions are believed to come about, resulting in some 350,000 new cases of venereal disease, and more than 150,000 abortions.

Among those newborns, every day 35,000 will die by starvation, 26,000 of them children. Meanwhile, each twenty-four hours, the pace of war against the planet increases, sometimes in major affronts, other times imperceptibly, at least by our limited perceptual standards.

That war includes the loss of 57 million tons of topsoil and eighty square miles of tropical forest and the creation of seventy square miles of virtually lifeless desert - every day.

At current birth and death rates, the world is adding a Los Angeles every three weeks. If average human growth rates were to continue at their present course (the so-called "constant fertility variant") the world's population would reach at least 10 billion by the year 2030, 20 billion by 2070, 40 billion by 2110, and 80 billion by the year 2150." -From the book World War III - Population and the Biosphere At The End Of The Millennium

When we awaken every day many of us breathe a sigh of relief that we are still alive. There are many among us who now understand that life should not be taken for granted.

Yet for many people there are no goals being made, no plans to be carried out and no ambition that will be awarded. For some of us life is here but hope is gone.

We have been programmed to believe that there is a shadow vexing us and so we go about our day to day lives with a mark on our spirit that can keep us from thinking about a future that has promise and fulfillment.

It is almost as if we are all drunk with the spirit of dread.

Hollywood has been churning out torture films lately, movies that show people being killed in horrible ways. There is also a surge in vampire films, and alien films like "War of the Worlds" and "Independence Day" are being used as modern metaphors for terrorist plots from the invisible enemy.

While it is a psychological no-no to indulge in magical thinking, I can't help but think that there is some hidden message trying to get through.

I tune into other talk shows on the radio that seem to liberally dole out the tired old "reality" that has been talked about for decades. I listen to the late night talk that is supposed to be cutting edge and I get some sugar-coated love, light and fluffy advice that doesn't take into account that the ante has been raised in the spiritual war and that your arsenal must include knowledge in order to combat these forces.

When someone offers to speak about these topics, they are usually shut down because the commentator is himself illiterate about the subject matter that he is supposed to know about.

It is sad really.

I know we are supposed to feel good and that we are supposed to illuminate ourselves with the new age babble, but has it done any good? Does it offer you anything of protection against forces that seem to get more spiritually wicked?

No quick fix therapy is going to do any good to a world that has been exposed to spiritual corruption so foul that they are unaware that they are infected. No new age babble, or tired boogah-boogah story, or even a cross is going to protect you from the vampires that have been allowed to pass through the gates.

The problem lies in the fact that we are locked into the tired, rigid systems that give us no new ideas and no new knowledge. We are reducing the spiritual realm to clowns that ask for phone calls from people claiming to be time travelers or even the anti-Christ.

While I am sounding overly critical at the moment I do admit that I have a sense of humor about such things; then again, I couldn't be more serious about politics, religion, and those things paranormal that not only go bump in the night, but also get physical with a push, a shove or even a stealthy invasion.

The paranormal has now entered every facet of our society. The demons have entered through the gates of the temples, mosques and synagogues. They all have names, but the new age love and light brigade have failed to identify them.

Religious clerics run in fear from these demons, and some have even learned to embrace them because they empower their lust for greed and dominion over the weak-minded.

Politics are not immune from this plague of demonic tampering. Playing on the political chess board becomes an overwhelming exercise in hypocrisy, wearing our nerves to the point of being threadbare.

It weakens the morale of many people. Many seem so gullible and so willing to follow leaders who act as if they are possessed by some dark and chaotic force. In the political spectrum we are seeing men and women who seem to be corded to some dark force, their unity consummated through acts of bloodshed and sex magic. They demand that certain morality be practiced by the people, yet the elite adhere to a different morality, a peculiar one that shares the same characteristics as the vampire.

"Modern morality and manners suppress all natural instincts, keep people ignorant of the facts of nature and make them fighting drunk on bogey tales. Ordinary morality is only for ordinary people."-Aleister Crowley

We are beginning to see our human spirit gradually being taken from us. A cunning, chaotic and invisible force has seized the souls of men. I believe that this hijacking of the consciousness is the beginning of the alien threat that has been talked about by the so-called the fringe groups for decades.

Just after the 9-11 tragedy I was able to get an interview with Dr. Carol Rosin. Rosin told me of her experience working with Werner Von Braun, who, in the last years of his life, revealed things to her about plans for the future. He had spoken of the Cold War and how it would eventually disappear through knowledge and communication.

He then said that through a series of violent progression we would see acts of terrorism being committed by rogue nations and an eventual global conflict that would be accompanied by an alien invasion of some kind.

Now I am sure that a lot of people out there are laughing at the idea of an invasion from space, because critical thinking tells us that the chances of this happening are quite slim.

However, are we saying merely that the chances of an alien invasion with the magnitude that we saw in the movie Independence Day is unlikely, or are we ruling out all types of invasion?

My beliefs about aliens have been quite clear. Aliens, in my opinion, are any organism or entity that invades a host and then robs it of its resources.

Eventually the host decays and is left dead.

The alien or entity can be as small as a virus that enters into a human host and eventually cripples it and changes it. This makes the host vulnerable. Eventually the entity seizes and feeds upon the host until it dies. These entities can also feed off of the host's spiritual or psychic energy, changing its personality and its capability to function mentally.

Stories of soul-stealing entities are not new and the struggle to ward off such entities has been going on for millennia. The stories have been spun into mythologies about vampires and stories of reptilian overlords such as those spoken of by David Icke.

The word vampire, of course, conjures up Hollywood images of Bela Lugosi or Christopher Lee. However, there are many types of vampires, and not all are limited to being blood-sucking predators.

The alien and the vampire are archetypes that have been muddled with all sorts of clichés. But their origins are ancient, and they have symbolized disease, death and decay for millennia.

The eaters of the flesh, the drinkers of the blood and those who seize or possess the spirit were very much a part of the mythologies and histories of ancient civilizations.

The "alien" tendency to eat the flesh and blood of humans was spoken of throughout the oral and written histories.

"If any man whosoever of the house of Israel eat blood, I will set my face against his soul, and will cut him off from among his people. Because the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you, that you may make atonement with it upon the altar of your souls."-Book of Leviticus

Beheadings, suicide bombings, even the attacks on the World Trade Center where nearly 3000 died are all part of a ritualistic bloodletting. We have smeared them together as terrorism and have diminished the true nature of the threat and the symbolism that these rituals illustrate.

What we are seeing now are ritualistic crimes that have a major significance and carry theological weight in the mystical circles that exist in the highest places of authority on this planet.

We realize subconsciously that the elite exploit and control us, but our culture does not encourage an open or conscious acknowledgement of this fact. We don't see it exposed in the media, nor do we see religious figures openly denouncing the control mechanisms. In fact, they encourage slavery and obedience to the treachery of alien rage and conflict.

Our culture tends to marginalize those who express any ideas that indicate a mass brainwashing or manipulation is taking place. A secret stronghold that pays no mind to the peaceful teachings that are found in religion and spirituality has molded culture over the centuries.

Cultures all over the planet are encouraging their people to accept domination and manipulation. The question is for what purpose and for what outcome? Is there actually a force or perhaps a group of entities that are controlling us from some nebulous fortress?

We in the western culture are consciously unaware of what is going on because we are so caught up in our own so-called religious and political superiority.

We dismiss all of the blood rituals as barbarism and fail to comprehend the significance of what is released into the ethosphere when scores of Middle Eastern dead are left to be buried in mass graves.

We fail to comprehend the significance of a shell of human flesh burnt to a crisp and sitting in the same position as it did when it had life. The most frightening part of all of this war and bloodshed is the religious imperative to murder and to shed the blood ritualistically. After the blood has fallen to the ground a ritual of fire should seal it.

This is done to unleash a psychic power into and around the earth. When scores of souls are released in a violent manner it is believed that the energy activates a number of demonic or chaotic elements.

The images of violent murder that we see on television create a sense of hysteria in the collective consciousness. It cripples our psychological well-being and leaves us open for suggestion.

We do not account for the possibility that all of this ritual murder is being done to trigger the base instincts of humans. Their fight-or-flight mechanisms are toyed with and we begin to understand why we see an increase of consumption of sleep aids and antidepressants.

The media has been fond of using the term "desecration" to describe what is happening with the war on terror and the clash of civilization.

We have seen the desecration of the Qu'ran, the desecration of dead bodies, the destruction and desecration of mosques. The western culture does not see the how dangerous this can be. The western culture holds their angels and Gods in high esteem and they know of their characteristics.

But do they really know about the gods and the powers that are held sacred by their so-called enemies? Do they know that they are unwittingly unleashing powers and chaotic entities that when awakened could cause devastation, plague, and mass psychological breakdown?

"The reality shows that the war against America and its allies has not been limited to Iraq as George W. Bush claims. Iraq has become a point of attraction and restorer of OUR ENERGIES.

At the same time, the holy warriors, with God's grace, have managed repeatedly to penetrate all security measures adopted by the unjust allied countries. The proof of that is the explosions you have seen in the capitals of the European nations who are in this aggressive coalition.

The delay in similar operations happening in America has not been because of failure to break through your security measures. The operations are under preparation and you will see them in your homes the minute they are through with preparations with God's permission."-Osama Bin Laden

Many people are unaware that the murder that transpires every day unleashes alien thought forms. It releases energies that fortify the chaotic entities that are destructive and controlling of human behavior. The media downplays it as just typical terrorism and retaliation, a clash of good guys versus bad guys. But these acts of ritualistic murder are far from typical. They are acts of necromancy used to release and empower the alien plague of rage and insure that the people of planet earth destroy themselves willingly.

How else would you be able to explain why so many people support the advancement of war and bloodshed when they know that the prospect weakens the species and leaves them open for plague and pestilence?

"You still don't get it do you boys? There ain't no countries anymore no more good guys, they're running the whole show, they own everything, the whole goddamned planet they can do whatever they want!

What's wrong with having it good for a change? Now they are going to let us have it good if we just help them. Now they're going to leave us alone, let us make some money. You can have a little taste of that good life too. I know you want it, hell everybody does."-Commenting on the alien takeover from the Movie "They Live" by John Carpenter

Our fanatical Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders are literally allowing the invasion and infestation of Planet Earth. The blood that is shed opens a channel to entities that wish to possess mankind. It empowers unknown or alien forces that wish to arrive form the fortresses of the air and spread their infectious warlike rage to humankind.

"Thus shall be done in the most strongholds with an alien god. Whom shall be acknowledged and increased with glory and shall be caused to rule over many and divide the lands for gain." -The Book of Daniel

There are many who swear by their bibles and yet are unaware that there have been other ancient texts that have given warnings of the alien threat. It is quite clear that as we open the channel to invite the alien plague in we see the unwanted consequence of rage and bloodletting in our own neighborhoods.

The mass shedding of blood opens the channel. It fortifies the warlike energies of both sides. It is the alien within, the disease that opens up borderline personality traits.

We are in denial about what we are truly doing with this ongoing war. There are a few commentators who have assumed responsibility to get the word out about this and have somehow downplayed the importance of acknowledging the danger of what is happening.

There will be no politician or religious figure that will sacrifice his prestige or his income by stating that the alien invasion has begun and that it has turned into an infestation to render the population of the planet into a weakened state.

This leaves them vulnerable and ill prepared for the final act of the elite's plans. We will still be fed the same old rehash of new age philosophy that waters down the threat of what is happening: the elimination of what might be termed imperfect by the controlling elite.

As I have said before, the time for the tired re-hash needs to end. We need to understand that while we are playing war in the cradle of civilization we may be opening ourselves up to discarnate spirits that can possess us and rob us of our physical and spiritual health.

The life force and he death force have incredible power and the mythologies surrounding this power are an important part of our psychic genealogy.

When we see the world around us we can actually blame the horror we see on human stupidity or wickedness. However in our religious texts and mythologies we see that there were actually alien entities and "gods" that fell from their true divinity and set out to take spiritual energy and the life force from humans in order to live.

The first stories of these entities and their bestial nature predates back to roughly 4000 B.C.E. from the ancient Sumerian civilization. The Sumerians brought us the earliest archeologically proven dynasty.

Facts prove that by 3100 B.C.E the first cities were built and the first religions were set up and practiced. The Sumerians were polytheistic with anthropomorphic gods. The ancient religions believed in gods and demons and also "seizing spirits", those spirits that would possess a human host. These spirits were known as the Edimmu or the Ekimmu. Throughout the various ancient histories there were stories of men that would be attacked and possessed with an invisible entity.

The Ekimmu would take control of a man, give him the evil face, the evil eye, and then he spoke with the evil mouth.

The Ekimmu were believed to be created when someone died a violent death or was not buried properly. Their angry spirits would seize the spirit of the living, making them the ultimate shadow entity or intentional psychic vampire.

They were described as demonic in nature, phantom-like entities that roamed the earth, unable to rest.

Another belief regarding the Ekimmu is that their origins come from outside of our planet. The belief dates back to a time where the ancient inhabitants of the earth witnessed a great cataclysm. This cataclysmic cycle was created by the arrival of a comet or meteor that, when it hit the earth, not only rocked the planet but also left behind an organism.

This organism was alien in nature and had curing characteristics. The organism was used to heal the sick and even according to some accounts raise the dead. It also had the ability to transform humans into other forms. Those who were exposed to the organism could literally shed their skin like reptiles.

Sumerians named the healing organism Ningishita and the symbol of this organism was a Reptile with a staff or a wooden stave.

The organism mutated and eventually became a virus that would infect the victim. Eventually the human victim would become infested with worms.

In ancient times infection by parasitic worms was common. The filarial worm Dracunculus medinensis, also known as "the fiery serpent", crawled around inside the victim's body, just under the skin.

The victim was actually left in the same state as a rotting corpse.

Physicians treated this infection by cutting a slit in the patient's skin, just in front of the worm's path. As the worm crawled out the cut, the physician carefully wound the pest around a stick until the entire worm had been removed. It is believed that because this type of infection was so common, physicians advertised their services by displaying a sign with the worm or serpent on a stick.

In this arena we begin to see the areas David Icke has touched upon with his many books about the ancient Babylonian brotherhood and the reptilian horde that has allegedly possessed the elite on this planet.

It would be an understatement to say that a simple explanation of shape-shifting aliens running the whole show on Planet Earth is outrageous, but there might be some vital links to the explanation that show up in the mythologies of the Sumerians. What we see is that not only are we allegedly being controlled by a secret brotherhood, but a brotherhood that has a disease that has mutated over the millennia and creates the effect of a "metaphoric" shape-shifting experience.

They have been infected with the "virus" and the "worms" have invaded their bodies.

This type of "disease" is spoken of in the lyrics of the Pink Floyd song "Waiting for the Worms." The song is from the album "The Wall" and it is sung after the main character loses control of his mind and allows his entire hatred and bigotry to rise to the surface. He then shaves his head and wears a fascist uniform. He recruits henchmen to march through the city and begin a reign of terror. In the lyrics we see how "the worms'" infestation creates a bloodthirsty and power- hungry animal, half man, half beast.

"Waiting to cut out the deadwood
Waiting to clean up the city
Waiting to follow the worms.
Waiting to put on a black shirt
Waiting to weed out the weaklings
Waiting to smash in their windows
And kick in their doors
Waiting for the final solution
To strengthen the strain
Waiting to follow the worms
Waiting to turn on the showers and fire the ovens
Waiting for the queers and the coons
And the reds and the Jews
Waiting to follow the worms"-Pink Floyd "Waiting for the Worms"

The effect also results in a creation of a human that can be labeled a "hemophagic psychovore" for lack of a better terminology.

I remember back in 2002 that I was noticing some quirky stories on the crime blotter. One of the stories that confused and intrigued me was a story that had the headline:

Reptilian queens, UFOs, a cancer cure - strange circumstances surround murder case.

I thought it was an amazing headline since the story was not from a tabloid or weekly world news. It actually was a case looked into by Court TV correspondent John Springer.

By now we should all understand that I am not surprised by much anymore. Things are quite bizarre on Planet Earth these days, but I guess I really wasn't prepared for what I was about to read:

"In a case with quirky testimony about aliens, UFOs and a smashed vial of blood, a New Mexico fashion designer faced a death sentence for the murder of a woman whose body has never been found.

Friends of the defendant, Linda Henning, insist she brain-washed, drugged - or both - by the victim's husband, Henning's alleged lover.

The 48-year-old fashion designer found herself facing a capital murder trial - and the possibility of being the first woman sent to New Mexico's death row since the state reenacted the death penalty in 1985."

I was wondering if I had somehow landed in an X-Files episode commercial and that the lone gunmen would appear on the computer screen to tell me that I had been "punked".

"Bank teller Girly Chew Hossencofft, 36, was reported missing by concerned co-workers on Sept. 10, 1999. The Malaysian-born woman told friends and an FBI agent in the weeks leading up to her disappearance that if anything happened to her they should immediately focus on her estranged husband, Diazien Hossencofft."

I thought that the name was even suspect: "Girly Chew Hossencrofft?" Too weird to be a real name.

As I read on I started to get a chill.

"After her disappearance blood from several people was found in her apartment. Clothes and a gray tarp with her blood on it were discovered strewn on a remote stretch of highway."

It sounded like some sort of ritual sacrifice.

"Police built a circumstantial case against Diazien Hossencofft, 37, and he pleaded guilty to murder in January 2002 to avoid a potential death sentence for the abduction of his wife of seven years. But Hossencofft told authorities that Henning, his girlfriend, did not participate in the crime and that he inadvertently implicated her when he used a vial of her blood to throw off investigators.

Henning, who has said she believes that the U.S. and other world governments are run by puppets controlled by reptilian-alien masters, was indicted by a grand jury on 20 counts, including first-degree murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and perjury.

A third alleged co-conspirator with militia ties was implicated by Diazien Hossencofft as the actual killer, but a grand jury indicted the man, 52-year-old Bill Miller, only on evidence tampering charges."

There it was, a story that sounded like it was written by Karl Kolchak of television's Night Stalker series. Diazien Hossencofft's real name is Armand Chavez, who claimed to be a geneticist and is allegedly a shape shifter who actually altered his voice and look before he would kill. Of course the woman with him was obsessed by reptilian aliens that may or may not exist depending on what you believe about Sumerian religious belief.

Of course the story has been told over and over again and critical thinking should prevail when talking about shape shifting reptiles. However this is probably the first time that mainstream America has been exposed to anyone that entertains the idea of shadow entities and reptilian shape shifters in our midst.

As I have pointed out they are part of ancient religious beliefs and even though you can write it off as myth there are millions of religious people that believe that a serpent tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden.

What did the serpent introduce to paradise?

Death and decay.

What was the purpose of the serpent's arrival?

To arrive in the beginning to bring to an end the creation that has a direct blood line to the divine Father or in the Latin Alpha Omega Patris Sanguinis. The mission of the reptilian hemophagic psychovore is to introduce to the bloodline a plague that will kill off the inhabitants of the earth. The reptilian vision is to rid the planet of what they consider to be useless eaters.

Many people wonder: why does it appear that a fulfillment of prophecy is happening now? They wonder why the planet seems to be in chaos and why things are out of control.

It may be as simple as an organism that was once thought to be dead is now alive again and it is infecting all of us. It is a new form of sociopathic behavior.

It is all being done by design. The alien threat as arrived as an invisible entity. The darker forces spoken of by the ancient Babylonians have been unleashed in order to rid the planet of its divine stock. There was no armada of flying saucers, no army of satanic minions, and no formal arrival from superior beings on the White House lawn.

The invasion was literally an infestation of an organism that when introduced to the populace convinced the masses that they were their own alien threat.

"In general, one can say that it is only when human beings are threatened by somebody else that they are ready to unite and to accept short-range privations for long-range goods; they are ready to unite under the threat of war and catastrophe. Undoubtedly, the best thing for world government under law would be invasion from Mars. Unfortunately, this is rather unlikely to take place. But is it possible to persuade ourselves that after all human beings are their own Martians, that with over-population and over-organization and over-technicalization, we are committing immense aggressions against ourselves? Can we unite against ourselves for our own higher interest? "-Aldous Huxley

If we were facing an invisible, biological alien threat, or a threat of an invisible enemy that is in the form of a disease that can be contracted by anyone, then no one would be above suspicion.

What if it goes much deeper than this?

What if a group of researchers working at the Human Genome Project announced that that through an astonishing scientific discovery they found that non-coding sequences in human DNA is no less than genetic code of an unknown extraterrestrial life form?

Now this would mean that everything on earth has this extraterrestrial DNA. In human DNA, these so called non-coding sequences constitute a larger part of the total genome.

We only use 3% of our DNA.

Now even though this so called "junk DNA" has no purpose it has to be relaying some information. The information sends a sequence and then there is a predetermined glitch in the sequence. This produces an alien protein that triggers a dormant gene. This dormant gene sends a self-destruct signal. It is a remote controlled process.

The question is who has the remote control switch and are the junk genes that have a relationship with an extraterrestrial intelligence being manipulated by the puppet masters?

If the answer is yes then that would mean that evolution is not what we think it is.

The frightening thesis, if you choose to accept it, is that the reason we are seeing war and bloodshed without opposition now is because there are many humans being triggered in some way to respond to the ancient war like programming given to us by our extraterrestrial creators.

The idea of alien meddling is something that transcends borders and cultures.

Zulu Shaman Credo Mutwa, an octogenarian Shaman from Africa, states that a reptilian race known as the Chitauli exist on planet earth. He claims that they arrived from the sky anciently. They have been known to leave and then return. They periodically come back to the earth in large ships that make horrible sounds. He claims that they have returned to Africa and to various parts of the world. He claims that they are here now among us and they feed on our blood.

"The Chitauli prey upon us like vultures. They raise some of us, they fill some of us with great anger and great ambition, and they make these people they've raised into great warriors who make terrible war. But, in the end, the Chitauli do not allow these great leaders, these Great War chiefs and kings, to die peacefully. The warrior chief is used to make as much war as possible, to kill as many of his people, and those he calls enemies, as possible, and then, in the end, the warrior chief dies a terrible death, with his blood being spilled by others." -- Zulu Shaman Credo Mutwa

The Shaman claims that the Chitauli made their presence known in Rwanda, and that the massacre there was brought on by tribal rage fueled by an alien threat, a threat that sparked vampire hysteria throughout Africa.

Several stories were being published by Reuters and the Pan African news about naked "wizards and witches" falling out of the sky in Zambia.

There was also a report of a politician that was taken out of his home and stoned by hundreds of angry Malawians claiming that the political figure was harboring vampires. Blantire Urban Governor Eric Chiwaya, a member of the ruling United Democratic front was collecting human blood for international aid agencies.

Another man that was suspected of being a bloodsucker was stoned to death, and angry villagers also attacked three priests suspected of being vampires.

There is little doubt that the metaphor of a vampire or even an alien infecting us with the rage to do ourselves in is a valid one especially now in times of crisis.

However, is it all just a metaphor?

All of the alien, reptilian, and vampiric tales are based in ancient myth and religion.

It wasn't just made up by people like David Icke or even Zechariah Sitchin. It is not just a thrill ride in a movie like "War of the Worlds," "Independence Day," "Underworld" or "Blade."

The metaphor of the alien when hoisted above Hollywood cliché is often used to warn us of war and devastation. The vampire is used in literature as a harbinger of plague, disease and contamination.

The so-called metaphor of the reptilian shape-shifter may not be metaphor at all. It may be the reality that both the vampire and the alien are based on. It may be as simple as admitting that they are in places of power. They are here and they live off of your blood. The way that they will get it from you is to convince you that it is time to lay down your defenses and let them lead you to your death.

Their method of harvesting fresh blood is to cathartically engage our collective fears of an apocalypse.

There will be no end to the world, only an end to your life.

I hope you can forgive me for wondering if there are evil reptilian aliens in places of power trying to hurry it along.
