Sorry folks!

First, there's "President Eisenhower's Close Encounters" (2020) that has proven to be an Amazon best-seller!   And in 2023 its worthy sequel,

“The Nixon-Gleason Alien Encounter”

Still available on Amazon & "President Eisenhower's Close Encounters"

Released in November 2020 by Foundations Publishing, I take a look at how President Dwight D. Eisenhower made contact with friendly, landed alien beings in 1954 & '55, plus some other amazing presidential tales tied to this historic secret communication.  In January 2022 the book was released by Tantor Media ( in audiobook form....

Go to to find "President Eisenhower's Close Encounters" and its sequel "The Nixon-Gleason Alien Encounter," both best-selling nonfiction books with great reviews. 

Did President Eisenhower's second-in-command, Richard Nixon, years later as president escort comedian Jackie Gleason inside an airbase lab to see dead ET bodies?  Read all about it, every detail I could find.  Or listen to the audiobook form, via Tantor Media.

This is one remarkable story, backed up by presidential digitized records and the comic's spouse at the time. Stunning!

Some helpful images on the MO41 UFO crash affair, the subject of my first two books.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt was our nation's president during the time of the 1941 UFO crash in Cape Girardeau, a city he visited in 1920.


Young Ensign Jack Kennedy worked in D.C. for the Office of Naval Intelligence in 1941 and may have found out plenty on MO41.

Harry 1

The GrandMaster Mason of Missouri, Senator Harry S Truman used to live in Cape Girardeau in 1906. Just after the '41 UFO crash there, his stock soared and he was off on a meteoric rise to the highest office in the land.


This late 1990s letter was typed by a dying CIA and Army Intel officer, confessing that one of the biggest secrets he ever learned was of the crashed ET ship in Missouri, 1941!

History Channel

Not only has the MO41 affair been featured on "Ancient Aliens," but also on History Channel's "MUFON: Hangar 1" series.

Ancient Aliens

"MO41, The Bombshell Before Roswell" was shown and featured in the History Channel program "Ancient Aliens" in August, 2016.

This genuine ET footage still photo - taken in early '40s Russia - fits the description of the '41 Cape Girardeau crash perfectly. Coincidence?


Quite possibly an actual photo of a captured, crashed alien ship, site unknown. The photo was leaked years later, evidently, and seems to be a good example of what is said to have come down in a farmer's field outside Cape Girardeau, Missouri, in April 1941 - but it is NOT a photo taken from that night or shortly thereafter, as far as I know.

Skyrocket clips-1

Actress Carole Lombard died in a mysterious TWA plane crash in early 1942, with a UFO sighting involved. Here, she wears ruby "flying saucer" type clips, found after her fatal plane accident, which has eerie parallels to the MO41 event.

A paragraph from the "Twining Report," also known as the 1947 "White Hot Intelligence Estimate," showing 1941 UFO crash discovery by the army.

Most of the above images and video clips are about my 2016 book, "MO41, The Bombshell Before Roswell," which did well but is no longer being published by Argus. I have a new, updated version with the latest clues, hopefully to find a home in 2024 with a new publisher.
