Featured Event: Ike's Trip to Hollomon AFB to see Alien Craft




LOS ANGELES - UFO Crash at San Augustin Lecture. Author Art Campbell explores the possible role of President Eisenhower in the UFO phenomenon. It was February, 1955--the world was poised on the brink of international crisis: Eisenhower had just threatened the Red Chinese that if they invade Formosa (Taiwan), they face the threat of nuclear war. Our allies were concerned and angry, and the Russians were ready to explode their first megaton H-bomb. With all this international tension, Ike said he was going bird hunting in Georgia! (Ike also liked to golf. See his bright red leather golf bag, part of the Newport Beach Sports Museum presidential golf bag collection.) The cover story. Eye-witnesses stated that Eisenhower actually detoured to New Mexico’s Holloman Air Force base, just as the base radar was shut down and two UFOs were seen coming low into the air base? Follow the trail of testimony and supporting evidence for the hypothesis that Ike was involved in a UFO crisis just as the U.S. was ready to go to war. Time: 8 p.m. Location: Unitarian Universalist Church, (Inside the Fellowship Hall), 12355 Moorpark St., Studio City, CA 91604. Cost: $15/person. Call: (818) 483-0864.
