Steven Greer's Odyssey
By Wade Frazier

The catalyst for writing this essay was reading Steven Greer's Hidden Truth — Forbidden Knowledge, which is the book version of a recently rendered oral history of his life.  I have been following Greer's efforts since the early 1990s, and helped stage the New Energy Movement conference where he spoke in 2004.  Greer's journey saw him mount an impressive and dangerous attempt to make the reality of extraterrestrial (ET) civilizations visiting earth, today, officially acknowledged.  The logical extension of his ET efforts was the pursuit of free energy, because they are conjoined.

Most free energy activists I know of began their journeys at a young age.  They may not have pursued alternative energy while young, but they all had personal qualities and youthful experiences that led them down paths that few travel, and such paths regularly lead to the energy issue, which is humanity's root issue and always has been.  Those who have pursued free energy the longest and most successfully have had high personal integrity in common, largely because the perils and temptations are so great that personal integrity is probably the most important quality for continued pursuit.  Personal integrity is the world's scarcest commodity, which makes those activists quite unusual. 

Nearly all of modern physics' giants were, to one degree or another, mystics, which is true of most free energy activists and inventors that I have encountered.  Ken Wilber posited that the giants of physics became mystics due to science's failure to explain the universe.  I am not so sure.  I have known minds that were arguably on par with Einstein's and Tesla's, and their mystical orientation seemed significantly responsible for their scientific and inventive insights, not a result of watching science fail to explain the universe in a satisfactory manner. 

As with Dennis Lee, Steven Greer had a challenging childhood.  Greer thinks that his troubled family life helped make him stronger.[1]  Greer also had a keen appreciation of nature from a young age, which is common among those devoting their lives to healing the planet.  Greer had mystical experiences from a young age, partly due to being spared religious indoctrination, because religion is often spirituality's worst enemy.  Greer's mystical initiation began with a near-death experience at age seventeen.[2]  Dennis was in his early twenties when he had his mystical breakthrough.  My awakening happened was when I was sixteenBrian O'Leary's mystical awakening came much later, when we was almost forty years old.[3]  My first professional mentor began his mystical journey as a child, but had no framework for his experiences.  His startling mystical abilities were largely responsible for his ingenious inventions, similar to Nikola Tesla.  Others whose free energy efforts I respect had similar awakening experiences, usually in their late teens or early twenties.  Those experiences often led to radicalizing experiences, which usually meant leaving behind the conventional beliefs that the masses subscribe to (what I call “mind-crutches”). 

Greer articulated an important concept quite well, writing:

Most of the problems that we face in our world today, whether they be spiritual and religious or scientific, political and economic, are all because people are holding onto some perspective that has nothing to do with the truth but has to do with their own belief system and addiction to something that is outdated, and they can't let go of it.[4]

That is another way of stating the integrity issue.  We humans tend to abandon the pursuit of truth and settle for self-serving beliefs, particularly in a world of scarcity, as those self-serving beliefs usually help justify our political-economic status.  Jesus described a similar phenomenon when he spoke about a rich man entering heaven and a camel passing through a needle's eye.  That phenomenon is also alive and well in science.  It is possible that those self-serving delusions would largely disappear in a world based on abundance.  Greer wrote about receiving an angry, personal attack from a prominent scientist at one of his public talks.  After the talk, some of the scientist's associates approached Greer and said that his public outburst was not due to him believing that Greer's ET/UFO discussion was wrong, but because, “he thought that maybe it really was true, and it meant that everything he knew and has been teaching for sixty years of his career was rubbish!”[5]

Although witnessing ET craft in flight is easy to accomplish, denial is a common response from the public to UFO, ET and free energy talk, and Greer noted how “normal” such behavior was.  Greer related an incident when a U.S. military general invited Greer to brief him on the ET/UFO situation.  During the briefing the general noted that he himself had been stonewalled and ridiculed by the military establishment in his attempts to find out more.  He then related a poignant anecdote.  The general's father had discovered ET/UFO cover-up activities within the U.S. government and had run into the usual wall of silence and denial.  He told his son about the situation, but the future general thought his father was crazy.  His father eventually killed himself (or, quite likely, was murdered and his death made to appear a suicide).  The general told Greer, “I wasn't until I got into this position at the Pentagon that I realized that the old man was right!”[6]  If an ET/UFO whistleblower was thought a “kook” by his own son, what chance does somebody like Greer have with the general population? 

Greer has briefed officials from the White House, Capitol Hill, CIA, Pentagon, United Nations, Vatican and other institutions, and has yet to receive a scoffing reaction.  Instead, the briefing's recipients show deep concern and are troubled by the implications.  The most common reaction to his briefing again hinges on the integrity issue: virtually none of the briefing's recipients have ever done much with the information.  They fear the people behind the cover-up, feel the job is too big for them, and leave the task of uncovering the situation to somebody else.  Greer was regularly told by insiders that because he was an outside agent (Greer was a hospital emergency room doctor by profession) that he had the freedom to make noise on the ET/UFO issue.  Those insiders always wanted to stay inside and quiet.  Once Greer briefed a U.S. Senator, and they discussed why the sitting U.S. President (Bill Clinton) and others would not make the subject public, and the Senator said, “Well, I'm just a Senator,” and Greer retorted, “Well, I'm just a doctor!”[7]  Not long after Greer briefed the CIA's Director, one of Clinton's friends told him that they were afraid that if Clinton tried revealing the ET/UFO situation to the public, he would end up like JFK.[8]  That dynamic is typical of all humans, not just the elites.  Almost nobody on earth today assumes much responsibility for the trajectory that humanity is on, enough to actually do something meaningful about it (the ratio is less than one in a thousand).  It is almost always somebody else's responsibility. 

Sitting American presidents are out of the loop regarding the ET/UFO situation.  Clinton read Greer's briefing materials at the White House and exclaimed: “I know this is all true, but God damn it, they won't tell me a thing.  Not a God damned thing!”[9]  Jimmy Carter tried getting UFO information from George Bush the First, who was then the CIA's Director.  Bush refused to give Carter the CIA's information, and told Carter to get it from someplace else.  Carter persisted, and was eventually threatened with an abrupt end to his presidency if he did not immediately cease his investigative efforts.[10]  JKF was also stonewalled as he tried investigating the ET/UFO situation.  Dwight Eisenhower was the last sitting president in the loop.[11]  During Greer's journey, he was given a classified CIA report on the wiretap they had on Marilyn Monroe's phone.  Monroe told a friend that JFK had seen recovered ET craft, and Monroe was going to call a press conference to publicly disclose it.  Monroe “committed suicide” the next day.[12]  An FBI agent told Greer that he could be locked up almost indefinitely for publishing that Monroe document, but Greer does so to this day.  People such as Laurence Rockefeller, Barry Goldwater and even secretary generals of the United Nations have tried making the ET/UFO issue a public matter, but were thwarted.[13] 

Not long after Greer briefed the sitting Director of the CIA (James Woolsey), he was invited to meet with the people behind the ET/UFO cover-up and much more.  That group essentially runs the world.  They told him that the U.S. president and CIA director, “don't know anything, and they are never going to know anything.”[14]  Much of what Greer was told at that meeting seemed incredible, but Greer was able to later confirm virtually everything he was told.  At that meeting, they told Greer that they had paid out $100 billion in quiet money over the years to prevent free energy, anti-gravity and related technologies from becoming publicly used.  When I heard Greer say that in 2004, it made perfect sense, as I encountered those stories many times during my adventures.  I am sure that members of the same group offered Dennis a billion dollars to stop our pursuit of free energy.  As Tom Bearden says, those offers are their “benign” tactics.  Only when the “benign” and subtle methods fail do they begin playing rough, as they did with us

The global control cabal is divided, and factions of the more “benevolent” half have demonstrated those technologies to a select few.  About half of the cabal realizes that the power plays by the darker half threaten to turn earth into a cinder, and they favor bringing those technologies to the public.[15]  The darker half also has a plan to wipe out about six billion people and turn the surviving humans into pliant slaves, but part of their motivation is also to reduce humanity's burden to earth's ecosystems.  Ironically, with free energy, there does not need to be any burden to earth's ecosystems.  That global controlling organization is not one that many conspiracy researcher/theorists are familiar with.  That organization is the offspring of secret societies and elite manipulators going back thousands of years.  The favored grist for the conspiracy theorist mills - the Bilderbergers, the Freemasons, Bohemian Grove, Skull and Bones, the Trilateral Commission, the CIA/NSA and other alphabet soup federal agencies, defense contractors, European royalty and so on - are not in charge of that global cabal.  The cabal has penetrated and influences those organizations, thereby limiting what those organizations are capable of.  The rank-and-file members of those compromised organizations have little idea what is really happening or who is calling the global shots.  CEOs of Fortune 500 corporations that are involved in the global control paradigm and that have helped developed those exotic technologies are not in the loop either.[16] 

While I do not believe that names are important, Greer has mentioned some of the organizations involved with maintaining global control.  The Mormon financial empire is the most powerful member of the present group.[17]  Interestingly, Mormons stole Dennis' company in Seattle.  The Jesuit order is also a major player.  For the people who play at those levels, wealth is largely a means, not an end.  The end is power.  Controlling the world's financial systems and keeping free energy and related technologies out of the public's hands are simply the means to keep control over humanity.  People living in scarcity are easy to control.  People living in abundance are not.  Consequently, people motivated primarily by greed are not the most ruthless members of the global cabal.  Religious fanatics and Armageddonists are the most vicious foot soldiers of that global controlling group.[18]  They want to bring the world to an end so they can all float off to heaven together.  They have some strange bedfellows, and studying the spiritual path is important to understanding the situation.  The brethren of those religious fanatics are variously called negative masters, Satanists, the Dark Brotherhood and other names.  They have made self-service a science and enjoy all the death and suffering that their efforts cause.  They help the religious fanatics and greedy hyper-capitalists keep control over humanity, but do it for very different ends.  Instead of destroying the planet and everybody ascending to heaven, they want to drag as many as possible into hell

The global cartel's goals and means often align with the milieu's smaller players.  Greed and a lust for power is not the sole province of that global cabal; they are simply its most accomplished players.  For instance, I doubt that the global cabal was deeply involved in our Seattle eventsBill the BPA Hit Man may have worked for the cabal, but perhaps not.  The BPA and local electric companies may have simply been protecting their local markets.  Likewise, the Boston events may have had little Big Boy involvement, but that first offer to buy us out was most likely a Big Boy overture.  Most of what I saw with Dennis was probably just average people in the thrall of greed, fear and a lust for power.  The Big Boys usually need not expend much effort to derail efforts such as ours, as our “allies” and the local energy gangsters unwittingly do their work for them.  We will probably never know who stole our technical material during the raid; it was undoubtedly for somebody in the energy racket food chain, but might have been a relatively local effort.  Likewise, I am only about half convinced that Mr. Skeptic's efforts regarding Dennis are being done of the behalf of some covert interest.  The human ego may explain the dishonest “skepticism” that I have seen Mr. Skeptic engage in.[19] 

Brian O'Leary is, along with Ed Mitchell, the most outspoken ex-astronaut on the ET/UFO issue, and has had bizarre and perilous encounters with high-ranking officials.  The U.S. military brass knows full well the reality of the ET/UFO issue, but their cover-up and disinformation efforts are probably more along the lines of their misguided “national security” ideals than it is consciously working on the Big Boys' behalf.  In fact, the Big Boys have faked and/or inflated an aspect of the ET/UFO issue to further their power goals.  Most of the free energy, anti-gravity and other exotic technologies that I am aware of were at least partly developed by reverse-engineering captured ET craft.  Our reproductions of those technologies are relatively primitive.  If the ETs that visit earth had primarily malevolent intent, humanity might not exist today.  The ETs have technology that could exterminate humanity in short order.  Just one of their tiny scout ships could easily defeat's earth's combined military might.  However, an acknowledgement of the ET reality would immediately threaten earth's power structure, particularly the Big Boys' grip over humanity. 

For many years the Big Boys have planned a fake ET event whereby ETs are portrayed as the ultimate terrorist, and humanity will be duped into huddling under the Big Boys' “protection.”  It will be a global protection racket.  The ET “abduction” phenomenon is at least partly a Big Boy operation to manipulate people into fearing ETs.  The good news is that the ET situation is largely under the control of the benevolently-intended ETs, but they operate under the Prime Directive (Star Trek is not all that fictional), and they cannot directly and openly intervene in human affairs unless enough humans ask for it or we are truly in danger of destroying this planet (something that humanity will not be allowed to do).  Because humanity is toying with its self-destruction these days, our ET pals may reveal themselves in undeniable fashion in the next few years, which would end the dark ones' megalomaniacal dreams.  The Big Boys may try to preempt the situation with a manufactured event that vilifies ETs.  If the ET card is played, the Big Boys plan to play it first.  They also know that if they play that card, they will ultimately lose their game.  We therefore are currently suffering under the biggest cover-up of all time.  Most of the Star Wars technology has been developed so the controllers can threaten violence against a benevolent public ET landing.  Among spirituality initiates, such malevolent motivation and activity is not difficult to comprehend. 

Steven Greer, Dennis Lee and Brian O'Leary have all been subjected to life-threatening, cloak-and-dagger harassment by the Big Boys, Greer perhaps the most visibly.  I had begun full-time research on the subject matter that became my website when Greer held his famous 1997 secret U.S. Congressional hearings on the ET/UFO issue.  Greer had about a dozen witnesses testify, and his co-chair for the hearings was Apollo 14's Ed Mitchell.  Greer was trying to enter by the establishment's front door, something I had seen Dennis attempt numerous times.  I watched from a distance, and it was no big surprise when Greer and members of his team came down with a rare form of cancer soon after the hearings.  I sent information to Greer's assistant, Shari Adamiak, on alternative cancer treatments.  Adamiak died in early 1998, as did others in Greer's circle.  Greer was the only survivor of that cancer.  In his book, Greer described the diabolical technologies used to induce their cancer.  Greer used his mystical abilities to fend off their attacks, even shaming his assailants into ceasing their efforts (by asking his god to forgive them).[20]  Not only do the Big Boys induce deadly diseases with their methods, but they also attack people's minds.  Many inventors are paranoid, but Greer wrote that the electromagnetic technology the Big Boys use on inventors and others trying to bring free energy to the world induces or exacerbates paranoid tendencies.  I was part of at least one effort that may have come under similar attack, and I am revealing it for the first time here at this footnote.[21] 

Greer is still at it.  What may impress me more than anything else about people such as Greer is their persistence.  There are very few like them.

[19] At one of Dennis’ public events in the 1990s, Mr. Skeptic attended and handed out his “skeptical” pamphlets.  He wanted a meeting with Dennis and considered himself one of Dennis’ worthy adversaries.  Dennis quickly disabused Mr. Skeptic of that notion and refused to meet with him.  Dennis considered Mr. Skeptic to be merely one the many zero-integrity critics that he has encountered over the years, some on the energy interest payroll somehow, but many just freelancing.  That slight may be partly responsible for Mr. Skeptic’s efforts in attacking Dennis ever since.

[21] In early 2003, soon after America’s invasion of Iraq, Brian O’Leary asked me to join the board of the New Energy Movement (NEM).  In retrospect, I should not have joined, partly due to the fact that I was in poor emotional shape to assist such an effort.  I was invited into other efforts at about the same time, and I joined some before I realized that I was stretched too thin and quit all of them.  I helped found and fund NEM until I resigned the day after NEM’s September 2004 conference.  In late 2003, on NEM’s original website I read an article by Eugene Mallove on promising free energy approaches, and one of them was the exact technology we were pursuing when the Big Boys dropped the hammer on us in 1988.  Brian introduced me to Mallove and we had some email exchanges about Dennis, our efforts and the heat engine/heat pump combination we were pursuing.  Mallove was a former academic (at MIT) who had yet to really sail the rough waters of free energy activism.  I tried telling him about the big carrots and sticks that were used on us, and he was skeptical about the billon-dollar bribe that Dennis received (it was the largest he had heard about).  To Mallove’s credit, however, he was at least willing to listen (which is unusual in of itself).  I sent him technical information on what we were pursuing, and he promised to reply in the coming spring. 

In early May 2004, we had an NEM board meeting at Brian’s house and began planning our September 2004 conference.  Mallove agreed to be a conference speaker, partly because several board members knew him.  The week after our board meeting, I began to pay for professional assistance for NEM.  I resumed my career a month after I joined NEM, I was working twelve-hour days at my stressful day job, and there were some hiccups in getting the professional help aligned with NEM’s needs.  An NEM board member had a tantrum during that week over the hiccups.  The outburst seemed disproportional to the problems, and I had a very stressful week trying to calm the waters and getting us back on track.  By Friday of that week, May 14th, all was well and that board member sent me a conciliatory email, and further stated that we might be under psychic attack, the kind that Greer later wrote about in his book.  As that board member was sending me that email, Mallove was dying from being bludgeoned.  We heard about his murder the next morning.  Because of that bizarre “coincidence,” I will always be skeptical that Mallove’s death was a random murder.  It was frustrating to try educating Mallove on the methods the Big Boys used on activists like us, to instead receive his skepticism.  Mallove may have learned of their more extreme methods in fatal fashion.  Mallove was engaging in activism in Washington D.C., and Greer, Paul Wilcher, Danny Casolaro and others discovered the hard way how dangerous radical activism and investigation can be around America’s capital city.  At the NEM conference, Greer said that Mallove’s death might well have been due to the “extreme countermeasures” that the Big Boys sometimes use on their more nettlesome gadflies.  We may have also been subjected to those technologies during my days with Dennis.
