Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: July 8, 2017 (Stream + Tracklist): 70th Anniv. of Roswell UFO Crash!

Al Leon kicking the bong around. Spaceship kind a cloudy!

<Prince Lincoln: The Aliens gonna whip you and put you in your rightful place!; 10 sec.>

Greetings,

If you have listened to Smile Jamaica regularly over the past 5 years or so you will notice that one of my musical fascinations is UFO tunes.

I used to do political interviews on KRCL. When the Radioactive program was changed by an odious new station manager, (who has since ignominiously resigned), to a lightweight news show as opposed to hard news format, I quit doing it. I charitably said I “retired” from political interviews.

That left me with a whole heap of time to explore other pursuits. Based on  recommendations from a couple of my coffee buddies, I started watching the Ancient Aliens show on History Channel.

Giorgio Tsoukalos the Bob Marley of Ancient Aliens

The gist of the show is that Ancient civilizations were impacted by travelling space visitors who helped  create mankind to do their bidding: mining gold to repair their damaged atmosphere on their home world of Nibiru.

The 12th Planet that exists at the outside of our solar system.

Nibiru loops around on its elliptical orbit and approaches earth every 3600 years

The show tracks mostly Sumerian, Egyptian and Mayan stories and myths. I’m one half Assyrian – from the land of the two rivers (North of ancient Sumer.) So I was fascinated by the connection between one man’s mythology and an alternative world cosmology

Sumerian Tree of Life is a double helix
The Anunnaki created us from DNA of their creation

<Cosmology vs. Mythology; 3 sec.>

One of the things I noticed, especially in Mutant Dub, was the number of Reggae and Dub tunes devoted to space travel, aliens and UFOs. Add in several dozen Rock examples and you have enough for a 3 hour showcase on Smile Jamaica. I got to nearly 300 on my Itunes UFOria playlist. A Smile Jamaica episode averages about 35 songs in 3 hours.

Ground control to Major Tom

Since so much of Rastafari Reggae is devoted to the Bible, I could connect the dots between Sumerian Cosmology of the Anunnaki – Those who came from the sky and UFO’s in the Bible and other ancient stories.

UFOs in the Bible; 1 min

  • Noah’s Ark – No: Ziusudra in his submarine or Utnapishtim in his Tesseract (spaceship)
  • Burning Bush – Spaceship
  • Ezekiel’s Wheel – Spaceship
  • Jacob’s Ladder and the Stairway to Heaven – Spaceship
  • Elijah’s Chariot of Fire – Spaceship
  • Enoch (Noah’s great grandfather) – “walked with God and then was not”. Taken to the Heavens  via Spaceship
  • Magic Carpet Ride – from the Arabian A Thousand and One Nights – Spaceship
  • Vimanas from Hindu theology – flying spaceships who fought battles in the skies

Lot’s wife was not turned into a pillar of salt. That is the wrong Hebrew word. She was turned into a pillar of smoke after a nuclear attack to destroy the Sinai spaceport.

Jacob’s ladder: From the ground to a waiting Spaceship

Even Led Zeppelin would agree:

There’s a lady who’s sure
All that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.

The idea that space travellers from hundreds of thousands of years ago had the capacity to see Earth as a habitat to exploit seems far fetched. But is it any less fantastical than the Bible, Greek myths or Hindu stories?

The original dreads

But one man’s Skygod is another man’s Ancient Astronaut. According to Ancient Aliens, man’s evolution and creation is connected to the very same DNA that contains mysteries  we mere humans can not yet comprehend.

Noah’s Ark is unbelievable. 2 of every animal on a ricketty ass wooden boat? 70 cubits is 105 feet. Less than a modern Aircraft carrier. So you’re gonna fit elephants, giraffes, hippos and rhinos etc? Plus all the smaller creatures. No way.

How you gonna keep the lion from eating the lamb?

Space ship or submarine? Makes more sense. And if the Anunnaki could travel from the outer reaches of our Solar System, they would have the advancement to use the DNA they developed to re-create the animal and plant kingdom from seed banks and DNA repositories they housed on board their space craft.

Modern day physicists believe that the Tesseract space ship could flex time to enable space travel. It was how Utnapishtim left earth for the skies during the Great Flood

Modern technology we can’t even hope to approach in 2017 in an era of primitive Earth history. What local Sumerians, Arabs, Hebrews, Mayans and Hindus saw as chariots, or flying carpets or ladders we would immediately recognize as space craft.

The Anunnaki – see his wristwatch

Listen to my description and Tena Stelin’s song paying tribute to the Ancient Astronauts coming down from the sky…

<The Anunnaki phenomenon> 

***

In America, UFOs are most connected with the July 1947 Roswell New Mexico crash. Wasn’t swamp gas or weather balloons until military censorship

July 8, 1947: RAAF – Roswell Army Air Field

Long story short: In early July 1947, a ranch foreman named William Brazel discovered debris of a downed space craft. He recovered bits of the material and took it home. When he crinkled the metallic material it resumed its smooth, flattened exterior.

The Air Force bullied him into giving up his souvenirs. The Air Force investigator, Jesse Marcel, was also finessed into claiming what he found was nothing more innocuous than a weather balloon.

Fake news 1947: DENVER – UNDATED: Major Jesse Marcel from the Roswell Army Air Field with debris found 75 miles north west of Roswell, NM, in June 1947. The debris has been identified as that of a radar target. The Air Force released a report on 24 June debunking reports of a UFO crash near Roswell, NM, in 1947. (Photo by: UNITED STATES AIR FORCE/AFP/Getty Images)

I have a personal connection to what happened in Roswell that day. My brother in law, Michael, sells high tech pipe to computer companies. He is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

<Robert’s Roswell Recap; 1 min. 14 sec.>

He was in Roswell selling high tech pipe to local salsa manufacturers. He was having lunch in the local cafe with one of his clients. He innocuously asked, “What’s the deal with Roswell and UFOs?”

His lunch mate said that the coroner was instructed by the Air Force to bring 3 child size coffins to the Base. “You don’t need coffins for a weather balloon.” The coroner was total salt of the earth, rural roots and no big city conspiracy nut.

That was enough for me! Do not scoff, Look to the skies!

<Coffins for a weather balloon?>

<Two stories on the date of the Roswell crash>

True story on Roswell:

My brother in law sells high tech pipe to agricultural, research labs, salsa manufacturers. He lives in Albuquerque but travels the length of New Mexico.

One day in Roswell he asked his customer about the 1947 UFO crash. Was it real or bullflop?

His customer said: the local mortuary owner, salt of the earth rural America. Veteran. Straight shooter. The Air Force came to him and asked him to provide 3 children’s size coffins.

“If that’s what he said, that’s how it happened”

Friday Nights

Ancient Aliens TV – Friday Nights on the History Channel. This explores the various connections between Earth’s history and Alien contact before there was recorded history.

<My love of Sumerian history led to UFO-ria; > 2 min 6 sec

Basically Aliens from Nibiru called Anunnaki (Those who came down from the sky) who came to Earth b/c we had the gold they needed for their ruined planet. They were essentially too lazy to mine the gold themselves so they created a race of humans to do the work. When the humans got too noisy, they were destroyed with a flood.

Click image for a better view of how Nibiru’s orbit intersects with Earth and the Sun

Mystery-of-Nibiru-orbit (1)
The 12th Planet Nibiru – 9 planets, Earth’s moon, the Sun, Nibiru. Elliptical orbit from outside the galaxy toward the Sun

Every 3600 years the orbit of Nibiru approaches earth: The Anunnaki drop their space ships to space ports in:

  1. Sumer (lower Iraq)
  2. Sinai (Egypt) – the pyramids are guide posts for entry
  3. Baalbek (Syria)
  4. Mohenjo Daro (Pakistan)

Humans mine the gold. Nibiru whips around the sun heading back out to the edge of our Universe, the ships go up and land on Nibiru for the journey home.

They will be back in 3440 AD.

2. Zecharia Sitchin

An Azerbaijani Jew who translated thousands of cuneiform texts that showed what we know from the Bible and Greek Mythology were actually much older from original source stories from Sumer.

His book series, Earth Chronicles, discusses these topics

Zecharia Sitchin – the original Astro Theologist
508957
7 volumes of Aliens on Earth. Stories from the Bible and Greek Mythology came after their Sumerian originals

What have I learned from my bingewatching and binge reading?

All those stories from the Bible and parts of stories from Greek Mythology,  Iraqi A Thousand and One Nights, Hindi religious literature is all “plagiarized” from my ancestors the Sumerians (I am an Assyrian from that area on my mom’s side. Assyrians adapted from the Sumerian cosmology).

What is in the Bible or world literature that relates to Alien space travel?

UFO’s in the Bible

<Spaceships in the Bible; 44 sec.>

Flying Saucers by Tena Stelin – Lyrics transcribed for the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives:

Anunnaki, Anu-Anunnaki
Anunnaki, El Kuluwm

Flying Saucers
Them a chat bout on-ya
Flying Saucers
Up in the Sky near and far
It’s coming like Star Wars…Watch it!

Please tell me: what is the meaning?
The meaning of these sightings?
So many people claim to see the same thing
I guess it must mean something

Talking about Extra Terrestrials!
Ask yourself: is it real or is it impossible? Watch out!

In the Book of Ezekiel
It’s like he describes a Crystal Ship

I’ve got to wonder if he was for real?
Was he just a raving lunatic? Hallelu-Jah!

Enoch walked with God
And he was found not

Elijah was taken up into a Chariot
A Chariot of Fire!

Inna Ancient Mesopotamia
They talked about the Anunnaki
They said they came from beyond the Sky
Oh tell me! Was they telling a lie?

El Kuluwm means the Source
El Kuluwm the highest course
All and Iley and Allah is the Same
So the Rastaman tell me no feel no way
