The video above is a classic presentation the late William Cooper gave before a Las Vegas MUFON event in the late 1980s. Here, the famous conspiracist divulged links between secret societies and conspiracies in America with the alleged contact between humans alien beings. Many of his claims are controversial, of course, and would be revised and modified over the years, leading up to his equally-controversial death in 2001 shortly after the terrorist attacks of 9-11-01. However, it is very interesting to observe the parallels Cooper draws between groups like the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergs, and other elite groups in conjunction with popular UFO conspiracy theories emanating from reports dating back to the late 1940s and early 1950s.

Among the topics Cooper touches on in this video are the alleged existence of “Ebe”, a small alien recovered from crashed saucer wreckage (presumably the alleged Roswell UFO crash), which seemed to process food more like a plant than a mammal. “Ebe” was a nickname given to the entity, short for “extraterrestrial biological entity”, and was kept in custody until the early 1950s, at which time the creature began to fail in health. A number of other crash recoveries are described later on in the video, complete with the retrieval of craft and, in four instances, more alien captives.

MJ-12 is discussed as well, though Cooper claims it had never actually gone by this name internally, and traces the roots of modern American conspiracies back to the formation of this clandestine group during the presidency of Dwight Eisenhower. Looking back, it is interesting to consider how much of this, if any of it, is reliable data in relation to the ongoing UFO presence. For instance, Don Ecker had written in the 1990s about a number of highly sensational claims Cooper made, comparing them with research and, in some cases, fabrications made by other UFO researchers.

  1. Thanks for posting this. Disturbing, but I can believe it. I just have one question. With their advanced technology, why haven’t the aliens found a solution to their inability to reproduce, or clone a new generation? That seems a little strange considering their amazing capabilities.
