Linda Moulton Howe again promotes a known UFO hoaxer who wants to benefit from someone else's hard work
It has been brought to my attention that Linda Moulton Howe has published a story on her website where she describes the most important moment in Brazilian Ufology, the disclosure of secret UFO files by the Brazilian Air Force. Linda Moulton Howe tells the story with a level of distortion and absence of fact only seen a few years ago when she defended and promoted a known hoaxer as genuine.
Here it is: http: // I could not believe what I was told and then I visited To my astonishment and absolute surprise I confirmed that Linda Moulton Howe once again has produced a very unreliable kind of journalism and presented completely distorted information as genuine fact to the international UFO community.
Despite the fact that the disclosure of secret UFO files by the Brazilian Air Force was announced weeks ago as an achievement of the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU), after 14 very long months of hard work and determination in promoting the movement UFOs: Freedom of Information Now and the gathering of 36,000 signatures in a petition, Linda Moulton Howe completely omits those truly responsible for the successful results of the campaign.
Despite the fact that hundreds of UFO websites reported the accurate events leading to the opening of Brazil's military UFO files and despite the fact that the international UFO community is well aware of the legitimate info about the : Freedom of Information Now campaign and its authorship, Linda Moulton Howe published her story on distorting the information and omitting those actually responsible for the most successful achievement that the Brazilian UFO researchers reached with an enormous amount of work and sacrifice. News of the success of the UFOs: Freedom of Information Now campaign has been circulated to the international UFO community.
Instead of informing her readers appropriately, Linda Moulton Howe chose to interview one of the only people in the Brazilian UFO Community who had absolutely nothing to do with the campaign at all and who only had, at the last minute, jumped in the boat not as an invited guest, but only as a shameless opportunist seeking to benefit from somebody else's hard work. Yes, you guessed right that fellow is Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira.
Linda Moulton Howe's story on her website misleads her readers to believe that Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira was invited by the Brazilian military to the meeting that the UFO researchers had with them. Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira was never invited and he never took part in the campaign at all, as he is not recognized as a UFO researcher in Brazil, but seen as a nuisance to the legitimate Brazilian UFO community.
The UFOs: Freedom of Information Now campaign was launched in April 2004 as a genuine initiative done exclusively by the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU) with broad support from the entire Brazilian UFO Community. After 10 months of very hard work, last January the military finally acknowledged this movement. The spokesman for the military was Major Antonio Lorenzo and he contacted UFO researcher and Brazilian UFO Magazine editor A. J. Gevaerd, inviting him and the entire Committee for a visit to Brazilian Air Force installations, in Brasilia, de Federal Capital.
Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira, contrary to Linda Moulton Howe's story, was never contacted by the military and never invited. However, when he knew that the meeting was scheduled to May 20, he and a partner called the Brazilian Air Force department and demanded to be present at the gathering. As the Brazilian Air Force, as public department, cannot deny access to someone while open to someone else, he was then accepted to come, with a visible embarrassment for him and the members of the Committee.
Contrary to what Linda Moulton Howe believes or wants her readers to believe, Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira attended the meeting as an uninvited guest, much to the embarrassment of the Brazilian UFO community. He asked no questions to the military, took no notes, and made no remarks. He was not acknowledged at all. Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira did not attend any of the personal meetings with the military, and he did not analyze any documents.
All Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira and his partner did was take photos and films and make sure that they would appear in photos and films made by the members of the Committee and the press, in a incredible effort to have their faces on the program Fantastico for an interview, an interview in which Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira refers to Linda Moulton Howe. The Fantastico program is the very same which, a few years ago, exposed Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira' hoaxes and his prison under the accusation of having sold 6,000 pieces of land that did not belong to him.
Linda Moulton Howe presented Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira to her readers as if he was some kind of spokesman of the campaign promoted by the Brazilian UFO researchers, and as if he had played some role in helping the Brazilian UFO researchers to achieve this historical event. Instead of helping in any way, Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira only criticized the campaign in the previous months before it reached its goal of gaining the cooperation of the Brazilian military. Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira helped with absolutely nothing. And Linda Moulton Howe presents him as a person who played an important role in the process. This is a shame and is insulting to those actually responsible for the success of this very important campaign.
I think that I don't have to remind the members of the international UFO community that a few years ago Linda Moulton Howe visited Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira's farm in Brazil after Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira's paid for Linda Moulton Howe's trip. She was delighted to listen to his fantasy tales of abductions and contacts with aliens. Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira's claims are largely known delusions or hoaxes. She listened to no Brazilian UFO researchers, she spoke with no members of the press or Brazilian UFO community, she did not contact any of a number of people who could describe to her how Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira fakes UFO sightings.
Instead, Linda Moulton Howe promoted Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira's absurd tales in the USA, especially the hoax in which he was supposedly abducted by aliens and tried to convince people of his story with some burned bed sheets and small burns to the ceiling of a room, through which he was allegedly taken to a mothership and encountered 39 aliens races, including Jesus Christ. That hoax is well known to the entire Brazilian UFO Community, which completely reject his UFO-sect Projeto Portal (Gateway Project), created during the same time the HeavenZs Gate was created outside San Diego.
As the head of the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU), the group who initiated this campaign for the freedom of information, in the name of all the other members of such Committee and being the person who was contacted by the Brazilian military and invited by them for this very important meeting in Brasilia, I cannot stand for anymore of Linda Moulton Howe's unreliable journalism and will not allow it or any other half truths or omissions to destroy or discredit this critical freedom of information campaign.
The truth must prevail here at this very important and historical UFO cooperative effort. The international UFO community must move forward and we all must realize that there is no more room for lies, distortions, and opportunists who do nothing and criticize the ones who do.
