    Humans. It's in our nature to deceive. I hate to admit it but I'm more convinced that it was little people who were operated on, versus actual aliens from outer space. We're so used to NEEDING this occurrence to be real that we're willing to overlook the most plausible scenario.

    The hypocrisy of it all is that YOU want the GERMAN SCIENTISTS to acknowledge their ACTIONS during war time but don't expect or ask the SAME for your OWN government or those of the ALLIES where they TESTED various gases like MUSTARD GAS on their OWN SOLDIERS, DROPPING two ATOM bombs on CITIES full of CIVILIANS, using AGENT ORANGE and NAPALM during Vietnam and Korean wars, Bombing IRAQ and entering IRAQ without even finding ACTUAL EVIDENCE for NUCLEAR WEAPONS while at the SAME TIME having their OWN ARSENAL of NUCLEAR WEAPONS. If you want another country to DISBAN their nuclear weapons or just factories that would make it POSSIBLE, THEN THE US need to do the SAME. I just love the HYPOCRISY when you deem the NAZIS the WORST when the USSR under stalin and the US have killed ALOT more people and NOT CRITICIZING the numerous BLACK OPs the US have done in the last 50 years like those they did in PANAMA etc are QUITE AMUSING MENTAL GYMNASTICS. Moreover, why should the US government not GET similar flak for ALLOWING these "TERRIBLE NAZIS" safety and RUN major agencies and institutions in the US. Without HERMANN VON BRAUN the space exploration and the MOON landing in 1969 would NOT have HAPPENED and ironically is ONE of the THINGS that are TOUTED as one of the MAJOR ACHIEVEMENTS of the US and "WHAT MAKES THEM SO GREAT" and that it WAS ALL DUE to these "NAZI SCIENTISTS" their POPULACE to this DAY dispise.

    Richard Nixon took his friend, the famous Jackie Gleason, to Homestead Air Force Base to see the alien remains. Gleason returned home that night very shaken. According to his wife, he couldn’t eat or sleep for three weeks afterwards. He was never the same again. *Does that sound like surgically altered humans?*
    The only person Jackie confided in was Larry Warren from RAF Bentwaters, who had seen live aliens up close along with other airman in what became the most significant military - UFO incident in the history of Great Britain. Now referred to as the UK Roswell.

    The comments on this video are hilarious. However, you guys gotta empathize with her when you realize:
    1. She's a reporter, she's usually the one asking the questions, and
    2. This is her livelihood, of course she's going to mention her books. You'd be disappointed if she gave away all her work for free and then you bought the book and didn't learn anything new.

    This is a statement made to lead you into the wrong thinking, we can stay on top and have top tier weapons without constantly fighting israels wars. There is ZERO reason for us to have troops anywhere but on american borders and in allied bases for diplomacy during peace time. Literally anything else is bullshit military industrial complex propaganda.

  • Lord Rendlesham of Suffolk
    We have already established that our interstellar craft and surgically-altered humans piloting it are about as far apart as the viewers are to this lady’s book. It’s now 72 years since the Roswell crash so it’s ‘time’ to move forward again to England 1980. According to this lady we have to imagine these ‘surgically-altered’ humans carefully navigating one of our interstellar craft between the twin US Air Force bases of Bentwaters and Woodbridge in Suffolk, which held the
    largest arsenal of nuclear weapons in Europe.

    She never explained how they trained the surgically-altered Down syndrome humans to fly our anti-gravity craft? It can ‘cruise’ in the earth’s atmosphere at Mach 16 and outmanoeuvre any military aircraft in existence (and this still applies). This craft is capable of accelerating from 0 - Mach 30 faster than this lady can promote her book. This would kill any human, modified or otherwise.

    The disclosure movement worldwide is really taking off through information exchange. The shadow government is struggling to keep the lid on the Human/Alien Alliance. CIA assets like a *Annie Jacobson* and *Linda Moulten Howe* are trying really hard with half-truths, misdirection, misinformation, unnamed sources, deceased sources, top level leaks etc. It’s not working ladies!

    Honestly, I find it hard to believe that important government people trusted her with secrets they couldn't reveal to anyone else. This woman is lacking so much social etiquette in this interview when it comes to conversations. Give a short answer to satisfy the question and state a more detailed explanation is in your book. Don't go on a podcast to shell your book and then complain non-stop that the interviewer should read the book instead of asking questions.

    1:05:00 Interesting when Joe tells Annie around 11 seconds from the time stamp: "when you bullshit, I think you also bullshit yourself"
    If you can freeze frame at the point he mentions 'yourself' you will see Annie's 'tell'
    The autonomic response is self-evident you can have a poker face but you cannot have a poker body!
    A highly developed human can pick all this up from the vibrations when a person speaks.
    We on the other hand can pick this up DIRECTLY from her thought patterns prior to speech, there is no time lag so to speak.

    • Whizz Kid

      GREAT COMMENT! Here are further examples of other larger ‘Holocausts’ and some are taking place TODAY.
      From the colonial period of the early 1500’s through the twentieth century, the indigenous peoples of the Americas have experienced massacres, torture, terror, sexual abuse, systematic military occupations, removals from their ancestral territories, the forced removal of Native American children to military-like boarding schools, allotment, and a policy of termination.
      *By 1900 the indigenous population in the Americas declined by more than 80%, and by as much as 98% in some areas.*
      Between 1932-1933 *7 MILLION Ukrainians were killed and *10 MILLION died of starvation* in the USSR.
      The Soviet Union also paid the harshest price when an estimated *26 MILLION Soviet citizens died during World War II,*
      With regard to Africa I couldn’t agree more with your sentiments although, sadly, I fear that the exploitation of this great continent is not over. In this day and age, it is an absolute OBSCENITY that there are still starving people in the world. The top five wealthiest individuals own the *wealth equivalent of 750 MILLION people EACH* Among them are Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet.
      What is happening in the Sudan is a modern-day holocaust! - we should remind ourselves EVERYDAY that a human is a human regardless of the colour of their skin.

    I'm totally addicted to these JRE podcasts! Super interesting! I do have to point out at 1:29:16 that Annie is very misleading about the fencing/dueling scars. They were an early university "German" practice; it wasn't only "Nazis" who did this and the practice started way before the Nazi party was conceived. So chances are there were Nazis with dueling scars, but also Germans with the scars who were not Nazis. Just my two-cents!
