Alien Contact Laws- $5,000 Fine And Imprisonment

HTML clipboard

Already Passed by Congress On October 5, 1982, Dr. Brain T. Clifford of the
Pentagon announced at a press conference (“The Star”, New York, Oct.
5, 1982) that contact between U.S. citizens and extra-terrestrials or their
vehicles is strictly illegal. According to a law already on the books  (Title 14,
Section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations, adopted on July 16, 1969,
before the Apollo moon shots), anyone guilty of such contact automatically
becomes a wanted criminal to be jailed for one year and fined $5,000. 

administrator is empowered to determine with or without a hearing that a person
or object has been “extraterrestrially exposed” and impose an
indeterminate quarantine under armed guard, which could not be broken even by
court order. There is no limit placed on the number of individuals who could
thus be arbitrarily quarantined. 

The definition of “extraterrestrial
exposure” is left entirely up to NASA administrator, who is thus endowed
with total dictatorial power to be exercised at his slightest caprice, which is
completely contrary to the Constitution. According to Dr. Clifford, whose
commanding officers have been assuring the public for the last 39 years that
UFO’s are nothing more than hoaxes and delusions to be dismissed with a
condescending smile: “This is really no joke, it’s a very serious

This legislation was buried in the 1,211th subsection of the 14th
section of a batch of regulations very few members of government probably
bothered to read in its entirety, the proverbial needle in the haystack, and was
slipped onto the books without public debate. Thus from one day to the next we
learn that, without having informed the public, in its infinite wisdom, the
government of the United States has created a whole new criminal class: UFO
contactees. The lame excuse offered by NASA as a sugar coating for this bitter
pill is that extra-terrestrials might have a virus that could wipe out the human
race. This is certainly one of the many possibilities inherent is such contact,
but just as certainly not the only one , and in itself not a valid reason to
make all contact illegal or to declare contactees criminals to be jailed and
fined immediately. 

It appears the primary effect of such a law would not be to
prevent contact, it would be to silence witnesses. If enforced, the law would
prevent publication of contactee reports except under cover of anonymity, and
unleash a modern inquisition in the Land of the Free. However, it is
unenforceable, so obviously absurd and unfair that the public will refuse to
accept it. 

The citizens of the United States will greet it with a resounding
Bronx cheer and laugh it out of court, forcing it to be repealed. It should be
replaced by clearly worded legislation, not open to interpretation in a
multitude of different ways, humanely relevant to the contingency of E.T.
contact, debated and passed by Congress openly instead of slipped through
“under the table” without the public being informed. According to NASA
spokesman Fletcher Reel, the law as it stands is not immediately applicable, but
in case of need could quickly be made applicable. What this means is that it is
ambiguously worded, so that it can be interpreted either one way or the other,
as the government desires. It is certainly not a coincidence that Dr. Clifford
held his press conference during the period when the popularity of the film E.T.
was at its peak. As E.T. portrayed a type of extraterrestrial that was
benevolent and lovable, the inference is that the press conference was intended
to discourage attempts to communicate or fraternize with UFO occupants. However,
instead of having the intended effect, it backfired, causing public furor. 

may be some relationship between this fiasco and the next semi-officially
endorsed attempt to deal with the subject of extra-terrestrials, the TV film V,
which was featured with repeat performances and maximum publicity by major
networks worldwide. The aliens portrayed in V are the most horrifying and
repulsive nightmares imaginable, who are defeated thanks largely to a CIA hit
man specializing in covert operations, the tough guy with the heart of gold who
with the aid of the handsome hero saves the human race. 

This is obvious and
transparent propaganda, designed to do what the government’s widespread use of
dis-information, and Dr. Clifford’s press conference about the absurd lemon of a
law already on the books failed to do: squelch attempts to communicate or
fraternize with UFO occupants. One way to avoid widespread panic at the
announcement of the news that we are under surveillance by nonhuman intelligent
beings with a technology far more sophisticated than our own is to point out
that this situation is nothing new, but has literally been going on for
millennia. If the “flying dragons” mentioned in the I Ching intended
to attack and destroy us, they could easily have carried out this objective long
ago. Along with this article, the text of the E.T. Law will be presented.
However, there are several points that I wish to make: 1211.101 Applicability. 

The provisions of this part apply to all NASA manned and unmanned space
missions… I could dismiss this whole controversy as a tempest in a teacup if
the above passage contained the word “only”, so as to read: “The
provisions of this part apply only to all NASA manned and unmanned space
missions…” However, it does not contain that one little word which would
have made such a big difference. If the government was suddenly faced with the
accomplished fact of an undeniable overt E.T. visitation, this regulation could
therefore, be construed as being applicable to all space missions, NASA or non
NASA, whether of terrestrial or extra-terrestrial origin. As it stands, this law
is applicable to UFO contact. The meaning would have to be stretched, but the
built-in loophole does exist. 

1211.102 Definitions.
(b)(2): Touched directly or
been in close proximity to (or been exposed indirectly to )…Even without
involved in a UFO close encounter would become eligible for indefinite
quarantine under armed guard according to the above. By including indirect
exposure, the NASA administrator is empowered to make the definition mean just
about anything he wants it to. An example of indirect exposure is given, but an
example is not a definition. Unless indirect exposure is defined precisely, it
can mean almost anything. The possibility is not specifically ruled out that
other types of indirect exposure than the example given might be considered
valid grounds to “quarantine” a citizen or group of citizens. In my
opinion, it is vital that we challenge the validity of his law, for if it is
allowed to stand unchallenged, UFO contactees and researchers may all meet
behind barbed wire and armed guards somewhere in Alaska. I strongly urge
everyone who reads the E.T. Law, Title 14, Section 1211 of the Code of Federal
(at the end of this article), to clip it out, and send it on to your
congressman, with a demand penciled in, to repeal this absurd and potentially
lethal law. We must use reason, and transcend fear in order to make this planet
a place where all may live in peace and harmony, as One. Text of the E.T. Law

animal, or other form of life or matter whatever is extra- terrestrially exposed
and quarantine such person, property, animal, or other form of life or matter
whatever. The quarantine may be based only on a determination, with or without
the benefit of a hearing, that there is probable cause to believe that such
person, property, animal or other form of life or matter whatever is extra-
terrestrially exposed.
(4) Determine within the United States or within vessels
or vehicles of the United States the place, boundaries, and rules of operation

(3) During any period of announced
quarantine, no person shall enter or depart from the limits of the quarantine
station without permission of the cognizant NASA officer. During such period,
the posted perimeter of a quarantine station shall be secured by armed guard.

(4) Any person who enters the limits of any quarantine station during the
quarantine period shall be deemed to have consented to the quarantine of his
person if it is determined that he is or has become extra-terrestrially exposed.

property, animal or other form of life or matter whatever in compliance with
such a request, order or demand of any court or other authority is not given,
the person to whom it is directed shall, if possible, appear in court or before
the other authority and respectfully state his inability to comply, relying for
his action on this 1211.107. 1211.108 Violations 

Whoever willfully violates,
attempts to violate, or conspires to violate any provision of this part or any
regulation or order issued under this part or who enters or departs from the
