Basiago and Eisenhower: "Marsgate" and the "Alternative 4" Dimension of Human Consciousness

Independent Mars colony recruits Andrew D. Basiago and Laura Magdalene Eisenhower have confirmed the existence of a secret human survival colony on Mars in a joint appearance on Exopolitics Radio with Alfred Lambremont Webre.

Mr. Basiago, 48, a Cambridge-educated lawyer who practices law in Washington State, was a child participant in the DARPA time travel program Project Pegasus (1968-72) and later teleported to a U.S. base on Mars twice in 1981.

Ms. Eisenhower, 36, the great-granddaughter of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, was the subject of a sophisticated attempt to recruit her into the secret Mars colony in 2006 that she broke free from after resisting its deeply rooted manipulations and chose to live out her destiny on Earth

They described how the secret Mars colony is funded by black budget military and intelligence sources as a survival mechanism for the human genome in the event that solar flares, nuclear war, or some other cataclysm ends human life on Earth.

In the wide-ranging, three-hour interview, Mr. Basiago termed the cover-up of the Mars colony “Marsgate” and called for a Congressional investigation of the U.S. presence on Mars, with its emphasis on military occupation rather than diplomatic engagement of the indigenous human society living in underground cities beneath the surface of Mars.

Ms. Eisenhower stated that “Alternative 3” – the notion that trillions of dollars of resources should be spent to protect human life by placing it on Mars – should give way to “Alternative 4,” a new public awakening to achieve a sustainable civilization on Earth.

Their historic, interactive exposé of Marsgate on Exopolitics Radio was based on direct personal experience.  For Mr. Basiago, this consisted of the two trips that he took to Mars in 1981, when, at age 19, he walked on the surface of the Martian terrain after teleporting there from a CIA facility in El Segundo, California.  

For Ms. Eisenhower, this consisted of clandestine efforts that were made in 2006, when she was 33, to infiltrate her personal life and recruit her as a member of the secret Mars colony.

She was recruited for a mission that would travel to Mars and learned that a colony had been under development there for several decades. It wasn't until later that she found the connection between the mission and the colony, in very significant ways.

During the interview, the two emerging figures in the Disclosure Movement discussed their opposition to factors guiding the secret Mars colony. These include fear, secrecy, psychological manipulation of recruits, and the abuse of quantum access technologies and other covert methods to identify potential colonists.  

Mr. Basiago speculated that the Mars colony is being staffed by individuals who descend from specific Aryan bloodlines that contain a Martian genetic substrate and that do not represent the genetic diversity of the entire human race on Earth.  Ms. Eisenhower, agreeing, also was exposed to and understood the archetypal aspects and significance of it. 

They suggested that this policy be reconsidered.  In various venues, Mr. Basiago, Ms. Eisenhower, and this reporter have advocated a treaty between Earth and Mars society that would establish a Mars protectorate and normalize diplomatic recognition and immigration between the two planets.

Following the interview, Mr. Basiago and Ms. Eisenhower issued a joint statement about human survival colonies on other planets.
"It is a positive thing for the human race to put survival colonies on other planets.  Earth has been struck by many cataclysms in the past, and so we should protect the human genome by placing human settlements on other celestial bodies.  

"Yet, when secrecy surrounding such projects tempts government to rob the free will of individuals, and excludes humanity from debating a subject that implicates the whole human future, and diverts the destiny of a planet to serve an off-planet agenda, the conscience of a free people requires that such projects be undertaken in the bright sunshine of public scrutiny, not within the dark corridors of the military-industrial complex." - Andrew D. Basiago and Laura Magdalene Eisenhower, 2010

Eyewitness evidence of the U.S. presence on Mars

With their joint disclosure, Mr. Basiago and Ms. Eisenhower – one a crusading lawyer, the other a member of one of America’s presidential families – joined a growing cadre of individuals who have stepped forward with eyewitness testimony that reveals the covert U.S. presence on Mars.  

These include Michael Relfe, who in two documented books describes his 20-year service (1976-1996) as a member of the U.S. armed forces staffing the secret Mars colony, and former DoD scientist Arthur Neumann, who has stated publicly that he has teleported to the secret Mars colony for project meetings.

1.  Michael Relfe:  Mars colony eyewitness Michael Relfe is a whistleblower and a former member of the U.S. armed forces who in 1976 was recruited as a permanent member of the secret Mars colony.  

In 1976 (Earth time), he teleported to the Mars colony and spent 20 years as a permanent member of its staff. In 1996 (Mars time), Mr. Relfe was time-traveled via teleportation and age-regressed 20 years, landing back at a U.S. military base in 1976 (Earth time).  Mr. Relfe then served six years in the U.S. military on Earth before being honorably discharged in 1982.

In a two-volume book authored by his wife, Stephanie Relfe, B.Sc., The Mars Records, Mr. Relfe describes the two types of individuals at the secret Mars colony:

“To clarify: Remember there are two kinds of people that I remember.

“1. People visiting Mars temporarily (politicians, etc.) – They travel to and from Mars by jump gate. They visit for a few weeks and return. They are not time traveled back. They are VIP's. They are OFF LIMITS!!

“2. Permanent staff – They spend 20 years’ duty cycle. At the end of their duty cycle, they are age reversed and time shot back to their space-time origin point. They are sent back with memories blocked. They are sent back to complete their destiny on Earth.”  (Vol. 2, p. 204)

Michael Relfe also discusses the presence and functions of Reptilian and Grey extraterrestrials at the secret Mars colony.

“EL: What about the Reptilians?

Michael Relfe: Yes. They are racially related (Draconians, Reptilians, Grays.)

EL: Do any Grays and Reptilians live on the Mars Base?

Michael Relfe: Yes, some are stationed there. I remember the Grays as doctors or technicians. I believe the Reptilians stay camouflaged (cloaked) most of the time. They prefer to appear human because they are naturally fierce-looking.” (Vol. 2, page 205)

2. Mars colony eyewitness Andrew D. Basiago is a whistleblower and a former child participant (1968-72) in the secret U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) time-space research and development program called Project Pegasus that involved gifted American school children in time travel.  

As a result of having teleported in Project Pegasus, Mr. Basiago was approached by CIA agent Courtney M. Hunt in 1981 and invited to visit Mars.  When Mr. Basiago asked Mr. Hunt why it was necessary for him to teleport to Mars, Mr. Hunt replied, cryptically, “Because the survival of the human race depends upon it.”

Mr. Basiago states that he was first teleported to Mars in July 1981 from a CIA facility in El Segundo, California.  He went via “jump room” and after arriving at an underground U.S. base spent about an hour on the Martian surface.  The second visit was made in August 1981 in the company of Mr. Hunt.  

Mr. Basiago describes how on the second trip, he and Mr. Hunt went for a quarter-mile walk on the desert-like terrain of Mars to visit one of the early Martian colonists, probably a CIA employee, living in a rudimentary stone cottage.  The colonist related how several of his fellow colonists had been lost to predators on the Martian surface, like the Martian land-based plesiosaur.

The testimony of Andrew D. Basiago as to intelligent Martian life both on and under the surface of Mars, it seems to me, is highly credible.  I have had the opportunity to interview, question and cross-examine Mr. Basiago closely over all aspects of his accounts regarding Project Pegasus and Mars since the year 2000.  

I have found his verbal and written accounts to be consistent and verified by available witness and documentary evidence, including written versions of his evidence that he has made available to me. 

As an attorney (a member of the District of Columbia bar) myself, I have found Mr. Basiago, who is a lawyer and graduate of UCLA and Cambridge universities, to be extremely conscientious in the execution of his duties as an officer of the court and a member of the bar of the State of Washington. He consistently tells the truth – even punctiliously so – and is a conscientious reporter of his experiences.

There are credible, corroborating academic, scientific, and U.S. intelligence witnesses to Mr. Basiago’s participation in Project Pegasus.

His account of life forms that he encountered on the Martian surface, including human-animal hybrids and plesiosaur-like creatures, is supported by images of such creatures that Mr. Basiago has identified in photographs from the surface of Mars taken by NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Spirit in the last several years and presented in over 60 writings that he has published at the website of the group that he founded, the Mars Anomaly Research Society (MARS).

3. Laura Magdalene Eisenhower – Ms. Eisenhower is a survivor of an attempted recruitment into the secret Mars colony in 2006-7.  She has documented her identity as great-granddaughter of President Dwight D. Eisenhower through her birth certificate and driver’s license.  

In 2007, her significant other and male partner, known as “Agent X,” broke down, took “apart all of the equipment (cell phones, computer batteries)” in their room, and admitted that he had been briefed and tasked by his associates to meet her at a cultural fair in a romantic guise with the true intent of recruiting her because of her social identity as an Eisenhower and spiritual identity as a divine feminine “Sophia.”  

Agent X’s associates may have used time travel or looking glass technology to pre-identify Ms. Eisenhower as a target for recruitment into the secret Mars colony.

Ms. Eisenhower writes:
“I only have my reaction in an email draft form, after he told me he was sent, nine months after knowing him. Here I am asking questions about why this would be so. I spoke to him in person about it and that is when I found out many things relating to my children and me. Here is a little excerpt from the email that was never sent...

“2007 - How did you know I was going to be at the gathering. I was the one who came and sat next to you? Did you then clue into the fact that I was who you were looking for? Did you have a description? Was finding me related to Magdalene or Eisenhower?  Are the people who want you to do missions aware of our connection?  Who is trying to harm us?  I have a hard time believing you knew all of this upon meeting me, it makes more sense that you would of found out after the fact..."
The surface corporate public infrastructure for the attempted recruitment of Ms. Eisenhower into a Mars colony project has been identified through “(1) A variety of technical documents relating to warp drive, plasma focus fusion, history of remote viewing and intelligence, the space industry and a new alternative fuel company; (2) A collection of emails describing 'Fleet EXODUS and Fleet DISCOVERY,' and that the project be kept highly confidential, especially from ET disclosure/Philadelphia project groups."

Ms. Eisenhower has written a statement which sets out her views on the Mars colony.  She says, “A little more of the background about this mission and how it is possible that it is connected to Sophia is described below in this quote taken from old emails in 2007 with Agent X.”

Ms. Eisenhower continues:  
“Something he calls the 'Patrons' communicated to Agent X about this mission. The word around the circle of people he knows – is that there are disturbances in the field and we need to be out of here in five years. He told me [and my associate] about the ships.
“The excerpt below is from an actual email that I have saved on file. He wrote this after she expressed interest about some projects in which he wanted her funding and planning assistance. She and I at the time were working on Earth mission projects both together and independently.”
In one email that Agent X sent to Ms. Eisenhower’s associate, he states, 
“Laura obviously has told you about our plans for an Exodus. The first Ark will be named Sophia. She will carry several hundred individuals to another planet, with eleven ships for escort and exploration. We have five and a half years to develop the Exodus fleet. To me the most telling song beyond what my 'Patrons' have told me is that the Looking Glass Project has never ever been able to look into the future beyond 2012."
Although Agent X has publicly written a statement denying what the above documentation clearly shows, at least one close former female companion of Agent X has written to confirm that public misogyny is part of Agent X’s modus operandi.  Ms. Eisenhower has chosen not to share the email, even though he publicly smeared her character.

This reporter has confirmed that Laura Magdalene Eisenhower is, in fact, who she says she is, the great-granddaughter of President Eisenhower, contrary to false claims circulating about that subject on certain Internet blogs.  The documents, document references, and emails made available to this reporter by Ms. Eisenhower and her associate appear to be genuine documents that are what they purport to be.  

In public interviews and private discussions with Ms. Eisenhower, she has sought one value above all others – commitment to the truth.  This commitment to the truth is what appears to have enabled Ms. Eisenhower to uncover the covert aspects of her attempted Mars colony recruitment, including its covert pre-targeting of her persona.

4.  Arthur Neumann - Mars colony eyewitness Arthur Neumann is a whistleblower who as a Project Camelot witness referred to himself as Henry Deacon and was formerly associated with a U.S. government agency.

On July 25, 2009, at the European Exopolitics Congress in Barcelona, Mr. Neumann stated publicly, “There is life on Mars. There are bases on Mars. I have been there.”  

The following day, Mr. Neumann participated in Futuretalk, a Project Camelot documentary interview, in which he provided details of his teleporting to a permanent Mars colony, and participating in a one-hour project meeting, which was also attended by representatives of an intelligent civilization that lives in cities under the surface of Mars. 

The July 26, 2009 Futuretalk interview during which Mr. Neumann spoke about the details of his teleportation to Mars for a one-hour project meeting attended by Martian humanoids at the secret Mars colony, was conducted by Bill Ryan and Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot, with the participation of Robert Dean and Alfred Lambremont Webre.

Mr. Neumann’s verification of the existence of bases on Mars, and of having personally been to Mars, occurred at the end of Command Sgt. Major (USAF retired) Robert Dean’s presentation at the European Exopolitics Summit. 

During his presentation, Robert Dean showed satellite images of an apparent city under the surface of Mars, as well as an apparent base on the surface of Mars.  

This reporter has examined former DoD scientist Neumann’s official U.S. passport as a former U.S. DoD scientist and his National Security Agency retirement pamphlets, and has questioned him about his teleportation experience to Mars and project meeting with Martian humanoids on Mars.  

Mr. Neumann is an independent whistleblower who has made his account – of teleporting to Mars and meeting Martian extraterrestrials in a DoD-related project meeting on Mars – public at great personal cost.

He is a highly gifted and intelligent scientist, and in my questioning of him and his account, I found him to be honest and concluded that he is being truthful about his experiences and that it is reasonable to conclude that his account of his experiences on Mars is genuine.

Alternative 4 and the positive time line

Alternative 3 is the title of a motion picture that was to have premiered on April 1, 1977 in the United Kingdom. It later played only once in June 1977. 
“[In the motion picture] it was claimed that scientists had determined that the Earth's surface would be unable to support life for much longer, due to pollution leading to catastrophic climate change. It was proposed that there were three alternatives to this problem: the first involved the detonation of nuclear bombs in the stratosphere in order to allow the pollution to escape. 

“The second alternative was the construction of an elaborate underground city, a solution reminiscent of the finale of Dr. Strangelove [as in Deep Underground Military Bases or DUMBs]. The third alternative, the so-called "Alternative 3," was to populate Mars via a way station on the Moon.”
In their interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, Mr. Basiago and Ms. Eisenhower discussed how a perceived need to escape solar system cataclysm or nuclear war while preserving the human genome is a factor driving the secret Mars colony.  

Underlying themes of Earth cataclysm and war seem to have led a breakaway military security apparatus to develop a plan to occupy Mars and the solar system covertly and through the manipulation of humanity’s free will. 

Although the 1977 British motion picture may have been a work of fiction or even a hoax, by the evidence, the Alternative 3 film appears to be referring to a real secret Mars colony.  Mr. Relfe indicates that he first arrived at the Mars colony in 1976 and Mr. Basiago states that he teleported to Mars in 1981, only four years after Alternative 3 was to have been released to the public.

Alternative 4

In the interview on Exopolitics Radio with Alfred Lambremont Webre, Ms. Eisenhower introduced the theme of “Alternative 4.”  This denotes a new dimension of human consciousness, one that breaks away from the dualistic reality of the permanent war economy. 

That economy’s ultimate expression seems to be a planet Earth destroyed by environmental pollution or war, solar or other natural catastrophe; meanwhile, a secret escape colony is prepared for a pre-selected sample of the human genome.

According to Ms. Eisenhower, “Alternative 4” means exposing Marsgate and the “Alternative 3” mentality that has led to the present cul-de-sac for humanity – an intentional living hell on Earth.  Alternative 4 means embracing a new, positive time line, in which Earth and humanity do not face cataclysm at pre-determined dates like 2012 (a Mayan calendar meme date) or 2442 (a secret Masonic meme date of 1776 + 666).

‘How I Empower the Positive Timeline’

Ms. Eisenhower writes

“I have endless thoughts and ideas, action plans and solutions and can link our ancient history, wisdom, divine blueprints and evolution into present time – knowing that a golden future is a result of us being able to harness our creative power and our highest potential through a deeper and more intimate knowledge of our roots and the hidden aspects of truth that are out there.

“I am aware of what it takes to reach our ultimate goals and protect the integrity of consciousness, and what is required of us to truly have freedom and justice in this world. I have access to technologies, plans and truths that can restore our planet and am connected to many who are already actively working on preventing Global Crisis and who are manifesting all the necessary change.

“I wish to draw attention to the things that are most important for our world right now and hope to steer our creative power into the causes, projects and understandings – that create the greatest shift both internally and externally.

“I have both practical, logical wisdom and a deep understanding of the esoteric, paranormal and mystical. With a wide range of interests and a vast education that was mostly self-taught, I am capable of uniting us and our missions and truly taking us on an adventure that captivates the soul, our deepest hopes and quest for answers. And I can help reunite us with what is most familiar and important for our awareness to grasp – as we transition into an age of Awakening...

“This is a false war – there are harmful technologies and we can stop these wars. We are all connected to the forces of nature and there are many who are doing work to stop this. This is why I am coming out. 

“Regardless of this story, the positive timeline must be empowered and any potential deceits, inhumane use of technology or doom scenarios must be addressed and looked at closely. This is because the only doom we are in for is the potential that we might be controlled and led to believe in things that play on our weakness and vulnerability, when in fact we may have nothing to fear at all.

“There is a lot of work that is ahead of us as we dismantle the technologies, dissolve the poisons and break free of the games and lies. There are agreements between lower alien races and humans and because of this things have gotten out of control.  Our universal allies must be recognized and we must mend the errors of the past through being the solution – rather than the product of their control and projections about our future.  

“Many are blind to the manipulative agenda, including certain presidents. Anytime we act out of fear, we have dug ourselves deeper into the false matrix.  When we act from wisdom and awareness of who we really are – we are agents of divine will, rather than part of the breeding doom scenarios that become a self-fulfilling prophecy, coupled with many forces that support that.  We also need to guard against false second-comings and recognize that it is our divine blueprint that is becoming illuminated.  We do not need to be rescued, just awakened.

“We have to fall back on our positive nature and higher selves to give our creative energy the fuel to break free.  We can do this!  We are the creators and dreamers. We can safely travel throughout space as well – with our freedom, divinity and spirit intact.”

Ms. Eisenhower quotes Caitlin Matthews: "Sophia is not a Goddess for women or men exclusively. She will give us a totality of wisdom, if we accept her for both the practical Earth wisdom of the Black Goddess and the transcendent cosmic wisdom of the World-Soul which are equally available to us."

British artist claims to have been visited by aliens SIX times in 10 years

A British artist has claimed he was abducted by a UFO and now aliens are projecting ideas onto his brain inspiring him to paint.
Lloyd Canning, 33, believes he was first captured by extraterrestrials in 2005 after he saw a massive spaceship hovering above his car. A few days later, he says that he felt compelled to paint certain images that he thinks are the aliens' way of communicating with the human race.
The dad-of-two, a former scaffolder, is so certain other-worldly creatures are using him as a medium he has given up his job and now paints these spooky images full time.
Lloyd, from Evesham, Worcs, has used his so-called encounter to create works that show portraits of planets and aliens and after years of keeping his collection secret in fear of being laughed at, Lloyd says he now regularly exhibits at alien conventions and is preparing for his first international show.

Whale found a km from the coast in Utah, U.S.A.

Farmington| A dairy farmer from a small town near the Great Salt Lake in Utah, made an incredible discovery on his property while he was looking for one of his cows that had not returned. 69-year old Michael Woodson, found a 12 meter long humpback whale laying lifeless in the middle of one of his fields, hundreds of kilometers away its natural habitat.

The Farmington City Police was called on the site to investigate, since the farmer thought that the cetacean could have been left there as a creepy prank by some neighborhood youngsters. The investigators rapidly dismissed the possibility however, as no traces of vehicles or machinery large enough to carry it were found anywhere near the animal. The police admits that they are almost clueless at the moment as to how the marine mammal found its way on Mr. Woodson’s property.

Fallen "Shadow People"

Shadow People, also known as Shadow Folk, or Shadow Beings, are usually attracted to one person or location for unknown reasons. Often they are seen as dark silhouettes of human-shape, generally male, that prefer to watch someone unseen and flee the moment they are noticed. Still this doesn’t always fit the experience. While some people distinctly see a shadowy human form others have dexcribed shapeless wispy black blobs and swirling columns of dark smoke.

#5 The Coventry Medieval Guildhall Ghost

coventry guildhall original photo
In April, the Coventry Telegraph were convinced that their photographer had captured a ghost on camera while taking pictures of the Irish President, Michael D Higgins during his visit to the town.
They reported that ‘in those images he found a ghoulish green ‘ghost’ hanging out behind Michael D Higgins when the leader was addressing the city’s Medieval Guildhall.‘ Apparently ‘the emerald ethereal apparition seemingly goes unnoticed by the gathered great and the good – who are all listening intently to the President’s speech.’
Yeah, probably because it is the light from a projector or some other such light source and they had no reason to pay it any attention. You see, the Telegraph showed everyone the photo above first which does indeed show an odd green light behind Higgins…
coventry guildhall annotated
…but when you look at the bigger picture (above) you can quite clearly see the light is reflected elsewhere in the picture (see fig. 2) and that the shape of the chair in front of the alleged ghost is mimicked in the shape of the ghost (fig. 1). This is because the chair is blocking whatever the light source is.

#4 The Dover Castle Ghost

This footage was filmed at Dover Castle by a security camera in 2009, uploaded to Youtube in 2011 and recently made the headlines because people were convinced that it shows a real ghost and, I presume, it was a slow news day. The first red flag is raised by the fact that this is bad quality footage being filmed by a secondary source which makes it near impossible to investigate.
Personally I think this is an insect moving across the lens of the CCTV camera which is why it has hardly any distinguishable shape or colouring (and it wouldn’t be the first time an insect on a camera lens has been mistaken for a ghost), but part of my thinks that this could also be a hoax (though I’ve no evidence of this.) The behaviour of the security guard in the footage is a bit too convenient and looks staged. Would he really have reacted so quickly to a weird thing appearing on CCTV? Hmm….
Either way, naff…

#3 Samuel Kent’s ghost

Samuel Kent comparison
Trowbridge resident Michelle Midwinter thought that she had captured something a bit odd on camera when taking a photo of her house. You can see the original photo here. She felt that something resembling a face could be seen in one of the windows when there was nothing in the window or nearby that could cause that effect. A self-confessed non-believer of ghosts she still claims that the photo shows what could be the face of an old man and sold it to the first News Agency that came sniffing.
Now, this is where it gets weird because the caretaker of my old school, Andrew Jones, who has an interest in local history says that the photo bears a striking resemblance to Samuel Kent, the father of Constance Kent, who brutally murdered her three-year-old brother when she was 16 in the nearby village of Rode in 1860. I’m not seeing it…
…but I do see He Who Must Not Be Named…

#2 Ye Olde Man Ghost

The above video of a strange apparition in the Ye Olde Man & Sythe public house in Bolton started to gain a lot of attention in February this year. I initially thought that what we were seeing in this video was created by using a Peppers Ghost illusion but I was wrong and Bryan and Baxtermanaged to make a perfect recreation of this video using Adobe After Effects as seen below.

When the video initially made the news I was curious and had a quick dig around and discovered that the account that uploaded the video to Youtube belongs to Richard Greenwood, the current manager of the pub who took over in 2012 after it closed down briefly. In a 2012 article about the reopening, The Bolton News quoted Greenwood as saying he wanted to capitalise on the history of the pub which dates back to 1251 and is thought to be one of the four oldest public houses in the country. Richard Greenwood is also Managing Director for Consult Greenwood Ltd, a consultancy firm supplying creative routes to market for new products and technologies…

#1 The Black Eyed Kids of Cannock’s Chase

black eyed kids
Black Eyed Kids (BEKs) are dangerous apparently, and a sighting of one could be a bad omen. If you let one into your home bad things will happen, but what these bad things are nobody knows. This is quite possibly because BEKs are just urban legends that do not exist. Don’t let that get in the way of a real life ghost story though! Gosh no.
The Black Eyed Kid of Cannock’s Chase is a case that is shrouded with poor taste and not a jot of mystery. Easily impressed Lee Brickley, the so-called investigator at the centre of this story received one eye-witness report from a member of the public who sighted what has been described as a BEK in 2013. He waited until October of 2014 to go public with this in what can only be described as a publicity seeking campaign.
This resulted in front page news stories in The Daily Star and the word-of-mouth account of the odd sighting being tastelessly linked to the murder of young girls decades ago in an attempt to make the story seem more interesting. It has since made the front page of the latest Fortean Times issue.
It’s a non-story and the attention it has gained is quite baffling. The fact that most of the coverage has been uncritical is just frustrating. I just want to put the story in context:
One woman says she saw a Black Eyed Kid. There is nothing to support her story other than her word. That’s it.
"Hi, I'm Lee Brickley and I'm hiding behind my book because I'm scared because I believe in, like, everything."
“Hi, I’m Lee Brickley and I’m hiding behind my mediocre book because I’m scared of everything because I have a low threshold for evidence. I believe, like, pretty much anything you tell me. “
Brickley has form for taking eye-witness accounts and using them as evidence that supernatural entities are real in the Cannock’s Chase area but (to my knowledge) he has never done it in such a tasteless fashion before. For that reason alone Brickley and his Black-Eyed-Kid-That-Wasn’t has made the Number One spot on my Worst Ghosts of 2014 list.
I predict that in 2015 Slenderman will be seen in Cannock’s Chase and will have a baby with the so-called PigMan hybrid monster. You heard it here first.
