Hosts Janet Kira Lessin & Dr. Sasha Lessin interviewed special guest JoAnne Richards on the Sacred Matrix on Revolution Radio (www.freedomslips.com), on Sunday, February 25, 2015.
Jo Ann and Mark Richards of the Earth Defense Headquarters (EDH) present a story that reaches back generations. Mark Richards is serving a life sentence for a murder that became known as the "Pendragon Plot." Years after the crime, he again came to public attention with claims to have been a space command pilot who led an attack against aliens to reclaim a secret base at Dulce, New Mexico. He cited a remarkable family history that includes numerous covert activities affecting global interests and top level alien contact.
Richards's story has been told on youtube videos, blogs, web sites, and conferences. Mark has been interviewed at least three times by Kerry Cassidy (Project Camelot). Indeed, Cassidy calls Richards a "classic case of the government framing someone who they feel may be turning against them from within the military." That alone might warrant our attention if it were true.
Ultimately, the story challenges fundamental notions of history, science, and culture. Carl Sagan once observed that extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. I am not sure that I totally agree with this premise -- proof is proof regardless of whether it is extraordinary -- but certainly we should not accept extraordinary claims on face value. As a former MUFON director has warned, "Make sure that you check their sources. Make sure you check every single fact. You better be a fact checker, because if you're not a fact checker, you're gonna be at the recipient end of disinformation, hoaxes and just being led down the primrose path that a lot of ufologists find themselves."
Much of what is presented cannot be proven. I might have my suspicions, but have no way to verify if there was or was not a 1952 "ambassadorial visit by Prince Nagadraconis, whose reptilian species was from Earth" at Hamilton AFB (as stated in 2009 conference notes, cited below). I do not know if an alien treaty was renewed in 2011, as claimed at a conference. Therefore, it is useful to look at what can be known to determine how much credence can be given the story as a whole -- and to do so, to start from the beginning with his family history.
