When I think of Area 51 I think of TV shows I watched on TLC when I was a kid, exploring the claims and evidence that existed for a secret military base that was studying anything from advanced technologies to UFOs and aliens. The shows would always create intrigue but always left you wanting more. I watched those shows back in the 90’s and early 2000’s, never did I see or hear the name Bob Lazar.
In my late teens, as I began to explore my curiosities around ETs, aliens and the paranormal that I had as a kid, I still for some reason hadn’t heard Bob’s name in the documentaries I watched. Thus, although I knew what I felt about Area 51, I simply wasn’t sure how much evidence there truly was. Then came 2009 and I founded CE. Now we were starting to move into full on research mode, truth-seeking and some journalism. It was around that time that our now most senior journalist, Arjun Walia, mentioned Bob Lazar.
This is when everything began to change about Area 51 for me… it’s also when I realized Area 51 was just one of MANY of its kind.
Bob’s Media Appearance As ‘Dennis’
In May of 1989, Bob Lazar appeared in a special interview with investigative reporter George Knapp on Las Vegas TV station KLAS. Bob used the name “Dennis” for the interview and remained anonymous by hiding his face. He stated he had to do this in order to protect himself as he would get in trouble for what he was saying.
He said that he was involved in the reverse engineering of several flying saucers and that the government hid this from the public purposefully. He also stated that the government knew there were technologies that could completely change our world as we know it and that they knew alien life existed. His story became huge very quickly and that’s when things began to get difficult for Bob.
“The propulsion system is a gravity propulsion system and the power source is an antimatter reactor, this technology doesn’t exist at all.” – Bob Lazar in an interiew with George Knapp.
In his testimony, he claimed to have worked in a facility called S-4 located adjacent to Papoose Lake, which is located south of the main Area 51 facility at Groom Lake facility. It was at this location that Lazar worked on flying saucers that were not of Earth origin and was even given briefing documents describing the involvement by Grey aliens from a planet that orbited the twin binary star system Zeta Reticuli with Earth for the past 10,000 years.
Lazar also claimed to hold degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech).
Why do I say claimed? Because no one has been able to corroborate any of his stories ever since he went public. The man was clearly intelligent, knew what he was doing, and was highly trained, yet he appeared to have been erased from the educational institutions that educated him.
How is this possible? Well, let’s think for a moment. If you have followed our coverage of ETs and UFOs here at CE for any time at all, you’ll know there has been a very large coverup when it comes to both subjects. The coverups are not coming from a low level within institutions involved, they come from very high up, and workers are compartmentalized so deeply within these studies that they cannot possibly put all the pieces together to tell a full story of what’s happening.
That said, the full knowledge of these programs is held by very high up and powerful individuals, the types of people who can order other institutions to erase your identity, history somewhere or even record of a diploma. All they have to do is utter the words “a threat to national security,” and they can get anything they want done.
So is Lazar telling the truth? Is this all made up? Have there been efforts to cover up his true story? That’s for you to decide, but thus far everything points to his testimony being true. His story has never changed and has been corroborated by many others.
A New Film About Lazar
In a new documentary Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers, which sold out its 1600 seat world premiere in LA earlier this week, director Jeremy Corbel tells the incredible, almost unbelievable story of Bob Lazar and all that happened after that famed 1989 interview.
The film explores his story from front to back, including the challenges Lazar experienced while making the film where current lab, United Nuclear, was raided by the FBI who stated they were searching for some toxic chemicals. Yet, Lazar claims the police response for what is truly was a routine investigation was well over the top. What were they actually looking for? Were they just trying to harass or intimidate Bob during a project where he’d be telling his story to millions more? Maybe they want him to stay silent?
Either way, they seem to be keeping a very close eye on Bob still.
I had a chance to watch the new Bob Lazar film and it took me back to my early days watching Area 51 TV shows, only this time, it was much more real, profound and intriguing. This film allows you to connect with Lazar and his story in a way like never before. His testimony is truly incredible and seeing a true portrait piece of a man who’s come out about one of the biggest stories ever to go public is riveting as you get to feel what he felt. Bob claims himself that him coming out about this has made his life worse. Lazar’s authenticity, humble nature, and emotion truly come through in this film and it illustrates just how tough it can be for people to come out and share the truth.
I felt this was an important piece for even the average person interested in UFOs or ETs because it allows you to truly empathize and connect with what whistleblowers go through. For those who do not know much about the subject, this is a very grounded and approachable way to tackle the subject. Yes, you can show this to your friends or family who think you’re nuts for believing in ETs, lol.
If you’ve had questions about Area 51, this film is a great place to start. And if you want to hear from the man who has truly blown the lid off area 51, Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers is mandatory viewing.
Is Bob telling the truth? Feel that out for yourself.
