George Knapp – The Government’s UFO and Paranormal Study: The Skinwalker Ranch – Sept. 18, 2018

Open Minds UFO Radio: George Knapp is an award-winning investigative journalist and is currently Las Vegas Now’s I-Team Chief Reporter. His reporting has made the mysterious Area 51 famous and has uncovered the most extensive scientific study of a paranormal hotspot. He also is an occasional host of Coast to Coast AM. As a UFO show, those are the accolades that likely interest the OpenMinds.tv audience most. However, beyond the paranormal Knapp’s reporting has resulted in two dozen regional Emmys, five regional and two national Edward R. Murrow awards, nine Associated Press Mark Twain Awards for best news writing and a couple of Peabody Awards, among others. In 1990, he won a United Press International award for his UFO reporting. Little did they know just how influential this work would become. 1989 was the year George began reporting on the alleged back-engineering of alien spacecraft at Area 51 by Bob Lazar. This series made the Area 51 base famous worldwide while remaining the most secretive at the same time.

In this interview, we discuss more recent revelations by George and the Las Vegas Now I-Team. In 2005, George co-authored the book Hunt for the Skinwalker: Science Confronts the Unexplained at a Remote Ranch in Utah. His co-author was Colm Kelleher, the lead scientists in the investigation discussed in the book. Before writing the book, George had hoped to create a documentary, but those plans were halted, until now. A new documentary co-produced with Jeremy Corbell includes footage George held on to for years. In addition to the original footage, George’s reporting has revealed the Pentagon partially funded this scientific investigation. This interview includes never-before-shared details about the nature of the government program and the research behind the Hunt for the Skinwalker.

  1. I was wondering if there were any reported UFO sightings over N. Las Vegas in the fall, mid to late November of 2003. What I saw was large and the crickets even sensed it. I feel I couldn’t have been the only person to see it. Is there a way to find out if there were other sighting around that time?

  2. It’s just the same thing as abductees temporarily seeing owls instead of aliens or being unable to remember their faces. It’s telepathic manipulation by the aliens when you get too close to one of their installations. It’s not actually big foot. You’re never going to catch the wolf man or trap an apparition. They are messing with your brain and your electronics. They can also take over your body like you were a radio-controlled car. Funny that they’re spending money on this ranch or tracking aircraft, but they’re ignoring the people who’ve been inside these craft and facilities. Other, much smarter researchers, like David Jacobs, don’t waste their time on studying from the outside.

  3. Thank you Reticuli. I don’t believe there was any telepathic manipulation. Though how would I know, right? I tried to keep my eyes open and pinched myself as a comfort that I wasn’t imagining it. I tried to be objective while observing it. It started as four lights coming from north of Nellis. As I continued to smoke my cig (not pot) within a minute it was directly over my house. The four lights were at each corner and in between, there was what looked like a heat shield. It appeared as if it were a mere 50 feet over the rooftop. I thought I could see the night sky and stars through it but there was distortion. It stayed still for what seemed like a long moment. Then one corner folded down a bit, kind of like an acknowledgement. It went back to it’s original position then began to rise up until I could no longer see it. It seemed like a long time but I didn’t lose time. Shortly after I no longer could see it, the crickets started back up again. I really couldn’t believe no one else saw it. It was a cold night but it was early evening. I wonder if there was someone with sophisticated projection equipment was practicing it’s use. If not, I have it on good authority that the US nor any other country has that kind of cloaking technology. Yet.
