MORE FOE THAN FRIEND -- IS IT TIME WE FORM
AN ALIEN RESISTANCE?
For many in the UFO community who deeply desire a more reassuring
explanation for the UFO phenomenon than the evidence may present, Karla Turner
continues to be a problematic, even tragic figure in the many years since her
death in 1996 from a dangerous form of breast cancer she contracted right
after an abduction experience. Turner was an outspoken voice for abductees’
rights and never wavered in her belief that the aliens were an evil,
invasive force that intended no good with their medical experiments and
frightening mind control capabilities. To this highly-trained clinical psychiatrist,
the UFOnauts were wickedness personified, simply evil in the “flesh.”
The publisher, “The Conspiracy Reader,” is adamantly determined that
Karla Turner’s voice continues to be heard from beyond this time and place and
that her message is still proclaimed in an era when alien abduction is no
less rampant and no less traumatic for the experiencers than when Turner
first began writing about what was happening to her and her family. This is
more so the case considering that so many stand deeply-rooted today in the
Exopolitical movement, where a sort of pseudo-hip “spiritual blissfulness”
regarding the true character of the “visitors” outweighs rational thought
in light of what at least some of the evidence as to their nature seems to
indicate. This can no doubt be considered a “theme book” which utilizes
not only Turner’s searingly painful research, but added background material
from a stable of writers, which includes Timothy Green Beckley, Tim R.
Swartz, Brad and Sherry Steiger and myself, resulting in a rather hefty, large
format, 285-page collection of shocking, mind-warping accusations against
those who seemingly hold us in some form of cosmic slavery that has gone
on unabated possibly since antiquity if not from the start of our very

This innovative book, “Evil Empire of the ETs and the Ultra-Terrestrials,”
opens with a fascinating narrative by seasoned UFO/paranormal author Tim
Beckley, who first hung out his journalistic shingle in the field over
forty years ago. In a section which he justifiably titles “Strange Brew,”
Beckley – who has long heralded the paranormal vs interplanetary genesis for
the UFO enigma, relates the harrowing tale of a succession of tormented
travelers who encountered strangely morphing ships and shape-shifting beings
while driving the open highway, turning their sojourns into hellish
nightmares. In one case, a married couple, Bob and Jackie Blair, told their story
to a newspaper reporter in Sauk Centre, Minnesota.
Brad and Sherry Steiger
“They had been experiencing unexplainable phenomena for three days,” the
newspaper states, “for 900 miles across three states, and when they stopped
in Sauk Centre, Minnesota, hardly anyone believed them.”
The pursuit had begun in Montana when what the Blairs at first took to be
stars in the night sky turned out to be nine small ships and one large one.
Things turned hostile quickly when the couple’s car was shot with
needle-like shavings of silver metal that penetrated the couple’s windshield. The
shavings ruined the truck’s new paint job and when Jackie touched them they
caused her fingers to break out in blisters; Bob had a similar blister on
his wrist. The reporter says that their fingers glowed from the unknown
substance they had touched and Bob exclaimed, “We might be dying right now! We
don’t know what it is. We have to get to a doctor.”

The incident is dead on creepy as the couple says that a group of
attacking “individual things” were “shaped like about eight-inch people with
V-shaped heads, wings on their backs,” like prehistoric birds. They were said to
be exceedingly hostile and went into attack mode several times, cloaking
the scene in a dense fog. “It was like a backwards tornado coming from the
mouth of the leader of the ships. It was like a ray that he was sending down
with this funnel. He did it five times, than left,” Bob said.
This is a classic example of the kind of mental and emotional agony often
left behind after a UFO encounter.
“And you know we’re not dealing with men from Mars,” says Beckley, who
was once a strong believer in the interplanetary origins of the UFO
phenomenon but has wavered from this path in recent years. Not knowing or
understanding what has happened is hard to bear, especially in a case where one is
forced to wonder whether some kind of life-threatening injury has been
incurred. How could Bob know whether the blisters he and his wife had were
somehow a sign of something fatal? What doctor could have treated an
Beckley’s chapter provides the entire eye-popping scenario of the Blairs
along with another terrifying highway encounter that happened to a young
woman named Mickie and her girlfriend, which is so blatantly bizarre that it
would appear that they were almost on an acid trip, though Beckley says they
swore to him in a face to face interrogation that they never touched the
stuff. At one point in their drive across country a monster “dog” appeared
in their back seat complete with glowing red eyes, scaring the bejesus out
of the two women. Beckley believes this adds considerable weight to the
Ultra-Terrestrial concept that other realities are merging with our own in
many close encounter cases, placing the abnormalities outside the realm of
wandering space ships and alien occupants into a totally different conceptual
My own contribution is called “The Shadowy Universe of Alien Thought
Control,” and deals with such unsettling possibilities as the mental co-opting of
world leaders in government, religion and economics and the open hostility
of the alien presence. In an interview I did with researcher and political
activist Michael Brownlee, he argues quite convincingly that if anyone
else were to abduct members of our citizenry by the millions or over-fly and
disable our nuclear missile sites, we would regard it as an act of war and
Why is it we give the aliens a free pass in those terms? One answer may be
that we are humiliatingly outgunned and outmanned, and the authorities
simply can’t go public with a situation they can neither influence nor
control. However, efforts like the Star Wars Space Defense program, begun under
President Ronald Reagan, seem to be a step in the right direction, Brownlee
said, and he knows personally people in the defense industry who are
continuing to work to develop adequate technology to fight back against the aliens’
There is also new material in “Evil Empire of the ETs and the
Ultra-Terrestrials” by veteran authors Brad and Sherry Steiger, whose chapter is
called, simply enough, “Hostile Encounters With Alien Intelligences.” One can
always count on the Steigers to produce some of the very best writing on this
subject available anywhere, and their chapter certainly no exception.
“The Not-So-Friendly Face Of ET Encounters” is offered here by writer and
Emmy Award-winning producer Tim R. Swartz, who never fails to deliver an
in-depth and thorough examination of the topics he writes about.
Sandwiched in between all the fascinating new material is of course Karla
Turner’s “Into The Fringe,” which set new standards for honesty and bravery
in the face of the dark mystery of alien abduction. Turner had no patience
for people who said the negative baggage that accompanies abduction was
because of the abductee’s failure to be open to the experience’s beauty and
worth. Like Brownlee, she protests most vigorously the tendency to “blame
the victim,” to say the fault lies in humanity and not in the fascistic,
iron-grip of the aliens. No amount of New Age positive thinking can change the
fact that people are being subjected, completely involuntarily, to a
series of medical, psychological and emotional procedures that leave them
cowering in fear and with no readily available cure or solution.
Even the late Budd Hopkins, who told me more than once that he hesitated
to call the aliens “evil” because it would an over-simplification that he
felt would be counterproductive, nevertheless equated alien abduction with
rape, simply because it was not an experience freely chosen and could not be
stopped by any human method of resistance.
For an article she wrote for Tim Beckley’s now defunct magazine “UFO
Universe,” which is further elaborated on in the recent Global Communications
book “Round Trip To Hell In A Flying Saucer,” Karla Turner created a
checklist, a breakdown of the most basic elements of alien abduction that puts
the matter in its proper perspective quite succinctly. We present a portion
of the checklist here.
* Aliens can alter our perception of our surroundings.
* Aliens can control what we think we see. They can appear to us in
any number of guises and shapes.
* Aliens can take us – our consciousness – out of our physical
bodies, disable our control of our bodies, install one of their own entities,
and use our bodies as vehicles for their own activities before returning our
consciousness to our bodies.
* Aliens can be present with us in an invisible state and can make
themselves only partially visible.
* A surprising number of abductees suffer from serious illnesses they
didn’t have before their encounters. These have led to surgery,
debilitation, and even death from causes the doctors can’t identify.
* Some abductees experience a degeneration of their mental, social
and spiritual well-being. Excessive behavior frequently erupts, such as drug
abuse, alcoholism, overeating and promiscuity. Strange obsessions develop
and cause the disruption of normal life and the destruction of personal
* Some abductees report being taken to underground facilities where
they see grotesque hybrid creatures, nurseries of hybrid humanoid fetuses,
and vats of colored liquid filled parts of human bodies.
* Abductees report seeing other humans in these facilities being
drained of blood, being mutilated, flayed, and dismembered, and being stacked,
lifeless, like cords of wood. Some abductees have been threatened that
they, too, will end up in this condition if they don’t cooperate with their
* Aliens have forced their human abductees to have sexual intercourse
with aliens and even with other abductees while groups of aliens observe
these performances. In such encounters, the aliens have sometimes disguised
themselves in order to gain the cooperation of the abductee, appearing in
such forms as Jesus, the Pope, certain celebrities, and even the dead spouse
of the abductee.
“It becomes clear,” Turner writes, “from these details that the beings
who are doing such things can’t be seen as spiritually enlightened, with the
best interests of the human race in mind. Something else is going on,
something far more painful and frightening, in many, many abduction encounters.”
There is an understandable need, she acknowledges, for humans to believe
in the power of good.
“We need for the aliens to be a good force,” she admits, “since we feel
so helpless in their presence. And we need for some superior force to offer
us a hope of salvation, both personally and globally, when we consider the
sorry state of the world.”
The aliens understand that we hope for them to be benevolent creatures, she
reasons, and they use that desire for goodness to manipulate us.
“What better way to gain our cooperation,” Turner asked, “than to tell us
that the things they are doing are for our own good? Looking at the
actions, the results of alien interference, such as on the list above, there is a
great discrepancy between what we desire from them and what they are doing
Turner also detailed the consistent patterns of deception that make up a
great deal of the abduction experience. People sometimes report that they
were treated kindly by the aliens, and were told that they were “special” or
“chosen” to perform some important task for the benefit of humanity. Given
such a positive message, the abductees may ignore the fear and pain of
their encounters and insist to themselves and others that a higher motive
underlies the abduction experience. They may only recall, in some cases, a
benevolent encounter and have no memory of any negative action.
But intensive research now shows us something much different.
“We know, for instance,” Turner writes, “that ‘screen memories’ are often
used to mask an alien abduction. Such accounts abound, in which a person
sees a familiar yet out-of-place animal, like a deer or owl, a monkey or a
rabbit, and then experiences a period of missing time. The person often
awakens later to find a new, unexplained scar on his body.
“Uneasiness about the encounter will persist, however, and far different
memories may start to surface in dreams or flashbacks, and then the person
seeks help to explain the uneasiness. Quite often, hypnotic regression is
used to uncover the events behind the ‘screen memory,’ and that is when the
typical alien abduction surfaces. However, from several recent cases, it is
apparent that these recovered memories may well be yet another screen,
masking events that are much more reprehensible.”
So, according to Turner, abductees can’t trust their screen memories nor
can they trust the recovered memories which may come later. It quickly
becomes a wickedly complex hall of mirrors in which the truth perishes somewhere
in the many reflected surfaces. If things like forcible sexual intercourse
and all the other forms of victimization can be defended in moral terms, we
are a long way from understanding how.
Turner’s voice was not the only one shouting to be heard with this unhappy
truth, and many abduction researchers and hypno-therapists agree with her
overall negative take on the experience, though they may not express it in
those same exact terms. Ann Druffel, for instance, has written extensively
about methods for resisting alien abduction, one of which involves invoking
the name of Jesus immediately after an experience begins.
But it is Turner who remains the most eloquent spokesperson for resistance
from among the abductees, and we can only wonder if her voice was silenced
by her death from cancer as a deliberate act of the aliens, who were intent
on enforcing some form of damage control to counter the “bad press” she
was giving them. Such a thing is unknowable of course; the vagaries of when
an illness like cancer presents itself may have nothing to do with aliens,
even in Turner’s case.
Nevertheless, reading “Evil Empire of the ETs and the Ultra-Terrestrials”
will help to keep Turner’s dissenting voice alive and perhaps aid in your
own coming to terms with experiences that continue to bewilder and frighten
you. If you have a difficult time making it all fit into a rosy, glowing
picture, you are certainly not alone.
The great bard Shakespeare once famously wrote, “The fault, dear Brutus, is
not in our stars, but in ourselves.” But perhaps, in the case of alien
abduction, the fault originates somewhere out there in the stars after all.
