If you told somebody 10 years ago that there existed some sort of
secret group or "secret
government" pulling the strings behind the scenes of
government policy, international law, various global
rules/regulations, and more, they would have called you a "conspiracy

changed, largely as a result of information leaked by
Julian Assange, and various
other whistleblowers and activists in recent years.
All of this exists in what's become known as the "black
budget world" - a world so secretive that its operations,
known as Special Access Programs, or Unacknowledged Special Access,
remain hidden from Congress and are exempt from reporting to

Is this the world
where the "Men In Black" (MIB) come from?
Multiple presidents and politicians have alluded to the
existence of a "secret government."
For example, the 26th
President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, stated
ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government
owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the
President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, stated that,
"some of the
biggest men in the United States" are "afraid of something," of
a "power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so
interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not
speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."
Another great quote
comes to mind here, from Edward Bernays' book Propaganda
The conscious and intelligent
manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses
is an important element in democratic society.
Those who manipulate this unseen
mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is
the true ruling power of our country.
We are governed, our minds are
molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men
we have never heard of.
Eisenhower, too, coined the term "military industrial complex,"
and referred to the dangerous potential for the rise of misplaced
power it had created.
Today, within the
mainstream, this subtle hand that influence the realms of politics,
finance, and more is becoming known as
the "Deep State."
The Men in Black
Just as the "Deep
State" has now become almost mainstream rhetoric, "men in dark
suits" is another one that's creeping into the picture, thanks to
Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as Russian Prime
Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
A couple of months
ago in a live interview, Putin said:
a person is elected, he comes with his ideas. Then people with
briefcases come to visit him, well dressed, in dark suits, kind of
like mine. Except instead of a red tie it's black or navy.
they explain what to do, and the whole rhetoric changes, you see?
This happens from one administration to the next."
Was Putin referring
to representatives of the Deep State?

decisions over the years were actually made by presidents, and how
many were dictated to them, their hands forced by other people.

policy, one that continues to push forth its agenda for a

As for Medvedev,
when asked about the

the camera was still rolling, he stated:

Who Are They? Are
There Any Pictures or Videos?
The best person to
refer to when discussing this topic is Nick Redfern, an author,
lecturer, and journalist who published a book titled The Real
Men in Black, which
provides evidence and anecdotal accounts of these mysterious men,
with a specific focus on their connection to the
Here's a little
excerpt from the introduction of his book:
For years - or perhaps even for
centuries, as I will later - the Men in Black have been elusive,
predatory, fear-inducing figures, hovering with disturbing
regularity upon the enigmatic fringes of the UFO subject,
nurturing their own unique brand of terror and intimidation.
Like true specters from the outer
edge, the MIB appear from the murky darkness, and roam the
country-side provoking carnage, chaos, paranoia, and fear in
their wake, before returning to that same shrouded realm from
which they originally oozed.
Very often traveling in groups of
three, the MIB are a trinity of evil that seemingly appears and
vanishes at will.
They are often seen (in the United
States) driving 1950s-style black Cadillacs and (in the British
Isles) 1960s-era black Jaguars, both of which are almost always
described as looking curiously brand-new.
The preferred mode of dress of
these sinister characters is a black suit, black fedora - or
Homburg-style hat - black sunglasses, black necktie, black socks,
black shoes, and a crisp, shining, white shirt.
Below is a picture
taken from Redferns' book of a strange figure seen by a woman named
Mary Robertson in 1968, a woman who became increasingly
afraid of this figure, which 'stalked' her for three days.
The photo was taken
by her friend, Timothy Green Beckley.
I had my own
experience with a Man in Black, when me and Jim Moseley
photographed a strange individual one day back in 1968.
told me and Jim he seemed to be oddly dressed, and kind of like
a zombie - just standing there, very rigid. She had never
engaged him in dialog but he seemed to be surveying those going
in and out of the building.
You can refer to
the book for that story, as it's one of many.
The most interesting
thing, to me, is their connection to the UFO phenomenon. The book
details UFO witnesses and contactees having these strange men show
up out of nowhere after an experience.
How did they know?
What was going on there?
There is also a
distinction made between Department of Defense type of intelligence
officers, and the MIB. The MIB don't seem to be part of any known
There is something
very paranormal about these guys.
A few years ago,

captured on hotel CCTV following a UFO report. It made its way
around the web and caused quite the stir, and multiple media outlets
picked up on it, including Buzzfeed.

of strange encounters that seem to keep happening throughout

He saw an
object, almost transparent at first, but then "solidly visible
over the lake." It was triangular or diamond-shaped, growing in
size. Swann, in terror and amazement, heard a strong wind moving
past, rustling the pine trees so much that some cones and
branches fell on them.

the craft was,
"a drone of some kind,
unmanned, controlled from somewhere else."
Axelrod asked him what it was
doing there, to which Swann replied,
"Well, for chrissakes! It was
thirsty! Taking on water, obviously. Someone, somewhere
needs water… so I suppose they just come and get it. You
don't need to be a psychic to see that."

"You got it," Axelrod replied.
Swann last saw Axelrod at the San
Jose Airport, and never heard from him again.
