LAKE ERIE UFO's CAUSED THE BIG BLACKOUT of August 14, 2003!
OHIO Lake erie UFO's CAUSED THE BIG BLACKOUT August 14, 2003?

"In the hours before the nation's worst blackout" on Thursday, August 14, 2003, "several transmission lines in Ohio were carrying massive amounts of power--"well above" emergency summer standards--before automatically shutting down, a company that owns the lines said Friday," August 22, 2003.

"American Electric Power (AEP) owns or co-owns the power lines with First Energy Corp., which is at the center of a U.S.-Canada blackout investigation. The company released the information with a timeline but didn't offer any conclusions about the cause of the failure."

"The region where investigators suspect the eight- state blackout began Aug. 14 had become a black hole, sucking electricity from generators and threatening to burn transmission lines because of the overload, power company officials said. Many lines automatically shut down to prevent burnout as the blackout spread."

"At some point, the power transmission systems in northern and southern Ohio separated from each other, causing electricity meant to move through FirstEnergy's system to reverse itself and flow over AEP's system through Indiana and into Michigan, then back to FirstEnergy in Ohio, power company officials say."

"'Something happened in the time leading up to the blackout to the north of us,' AEP spokesman Pat Henlepp said. 'Suddenly the electrons destined for Columbus or Cincinnati or somewhere turned tail and headed north (towards Lake Erie--J.T.).'"

"The power failure affected 50 million people in eight states and Canada. It shut down more than 100 power plants and knocked Cleveland's water supply off line." Curiously, strange objects were seen in the skies of northern Ohio before and during the blackout.

According to Filer's Files, "George Ritter, who fought in Vietnam with the 5th Special Forces, videotaped UFOs on (Friday) August 15 (2003), the second day of the blackout. He videotaped a series of photos of large lake- freighter-size (1,000 feet or 300 meters long--J.T.) cylinders flying over his home" in Fostoria, Ohio (population 13,931), 30 miles (50 kilometers) from Lake Erie."

"The video was shot on VHS tape at between 10,000 and 15,000 frames per minute. The speed is fast enough to stop and insect or bird. These craft are moving at thousands of miles per hour."

In addition, eyewitness Daniel Wilson wrote, "I recently read in UFO Roundup about green helicopters being seen in Massachusetts before a power outage in Attleboro, Mass. on (Wednesday) August 13, 2003. This shook me up a bit, because on (Tuesday) August 5, 2003, a low-flying, very loud, green helicopter circled twice over my house in Painesville, Ohio (population 17,503)."

"I was able to see the copter on the second pass as I ran outside to see what was going on. Hospital and bank helicopters fly over my house almost every day, but this green helicopter was not one of those. It was at about 200 feet (60 meters) in altitude."

"I watched it fly off to the south, and the sound went away. About a minute later, I heard the sound again as if the helicopter was coming again. Painesville is also 30 miles (50 kilometers) east of Cleveland, and also five miles (8 kilometers) from the Perry nuclear power plant. (One of the first to shut down Aug. 14--J.T.) Yes, we did have a blackout here on August 14th."

Painesville is on Route 20, approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) west of Ashtabula, a port on Lake Erie and the site of many UFO events in recent years. (See the Minneapolis, Minn. Star-Tribune for August 23, 2003, "Before failure, Ohio lines carried heavy power load," page A8. Also Filer's Files for August 20, 2003 and UFO Roundup for August 20, 2003, )

Lake Erie UFO's Observed In Blackout Area

Millions of people were without power on August 14th and 15th. The exact cause of the Blackout as of now has not been found. I suggest that UFO activity should be examined as one of the possible causes for the Blackout and satellite data may provide proof of this possibility. The Canadian Prime Minister claimed the blackout started with a lightening strike at a power plant at Niagara, New York, but investigation has ruled out lightening as the cause, since there are thousands of lightening strikes each day and the system is well protected.

The nation's fourth largest investor-owned electric system, serving 4.3 million customers, First Energy Corp., which is at the center of the blackout investigation says its high-voltage line failures could not have triggered the event, claiming there were numerous unusual power swings elsewhere in the Midwest hours earlier. First Energy spokesman, Todd Schneider said, "What happened ... is much more complex than a few tripped power lines in our system, the utility's data showed unusual conditions, including strange fluctuations of voltage, in the Midwest grid "as early as noon"

Thursday, more than three hours before the First Energy lines failed. The blackout hit its peak at 4:11 p.m. EDT.

A federal task force of US and Canadian officials will investigate the power blackout and determine how to keep it from happening again. There was still no clear sense of what triggered the breakdown and sweltering in summer heat from southern New England to Michigan. The preliminary investigation focused on an electrical transmission loop that encircles Lake Erie. No one was sure where the blackout was triggered, although investigators have been intrigued by a series of interruptions on five power lines in the Cleveland area during the hour before the massive blackout began.

The North America Electric Reliability Council states, "Two minutes after the last of the Cleveland-area line problems there were power swings noted in Canada and the Eastern US.'' They cautioned, "It's not clear if these events caused the wider blackout or were a consequence of other events.'' "We never anticipated we could have a cascading outage of this magnitude and speed", said Gent, chief of NERC, the organization charged with assessing the dependability of the nation's electric grids.

If the problem began in Ohio or Michigan, as speculated, it should never have reached Manhattan, complained New York Gov. George Pataki, adding that the grid was supposed to be designed to isolate such problems. It may be weeks, before solid answers emerge, said Gent. The answer appeared to be somewhere on what is called the Lake Erie Loop.

About the time power was disrupted, technicians noticed a stunning development on the northern leg of the loop, some 300 megawatts of electricity moving east abruptly reversed course and within seconds 500 megawatts of power suddenly were moving west. Electricity flows on its easiest path, so it is believed the change in direction was caused by a sudden reduction in power somewhere on the line at the western end of the loop, investigators suggested. Michehl Gent states, "This was a big swing back and forth, throughout the grid system, power levels began to fluctuate.

That caused generators and other systems to trip across the region to protect equipment." More than 100 power plants, including 22 nuclear reactors in the US and in Canada, shut down, to protect themselves against power surges, officials said. But, what triggered the shift of electricity flow, and where?

This is where UFO intervention should be examined. Numerous UFO reports are related to power outages. In last weeks Filer's Files #33, Minnesota - two saucers knocked out electricity near the Iowa border on August 5, 2003, at 5:30 AM. The witness saw two saucer shaped UFOs that fried the solid state-switching unit in his well. The local electrical provider came out and found a problem with a transformer and also had to replace a section of underground cable on the road where the witness saw the two saucers.

George Ritter who fought in Vietnam with the 5th Special Forces videotaped during the Blackout large cylinder shaped UFOs near Fostoria, Ohio only thirty miles from Lake Eire. Sam Sherman the President of Independent International Pictures also had a UFO sighting in New Jersey on August 15, 2003, that is detailed later in these files. The average UFO has shown it has the energy equivalent to a power station. They are frequently seen hovering above power plants and power lines often when the power fails. I contacted transmission line experts who admitted it was possible for large amounts of electricity to be taken from these lines without their knowledge.

Geomagnetic storms are another possibility but NASA's spaceweather site Dr. Tony Phillips stated, "Readers have asked if solar activity could be responsible for the widespread blackout in the eastern US and Canada. Not likely. There were no strong solar flares or geomagnetic activity yesterday to trigger the outage."

Many readers may remember the largest previous blackout in history, The Great Northeast Blackout on November 9, 1965, when the power system failed at 5:16 PM, and 30 million people in Ontario, New England, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania were without electricity for 13 hours. The event started at the Ontario - New York border, near Niagara Falls when a single transmission line from a Niagara Falls generating station tripped. Five other transmission lines overloaded and tripped within 2.5 seconds, isolating Niagara Station 1,800 MW generators that became unstable and shut down.

The Northeast Power System became unstable and failed within seconds. A Niagara Falls faulty automatic relay device was blamed. However; there is evidence that UFOs may have contributed to the power failures. A month later in December, the grid systems failed in Texas and New Mexico, after UFOs were observed.

Dr. James E. McDonald, a noted physicist submitted a report to the US House Committee on Science and Astronautics on July 29, 1968, during Symposium on Unidentified Flying Objects. He states,

"Then there are scattered instances in which substantial power distribution systems have failed at or very near the time of observation of aerial phenomena similar, broadly speaking, to one or another UFO phenomenon. I have personally checked on several such instances and am satisfied that the coincidence of UFO observation and power outage did at least occur. Whether there is a causal connection here, and in which direction it may run, remains quite uncertain. Even during the large Northeast blackout, November 9, 1965, there were many UFO observations, several of which I have personally checked.

I have inquired at the Federal Power Commission to secure data that might illuminate the basic question of whether these are merely fortuitous, but the data available are inadequate to permit any definite conclusions. In other parts of the world there have, also, been reports of system outages coincident with UFO sightings. Again, the evidence is quite unclear as to causal relations."

The largest wave of UFO sightings occurred in 1965. From coast to coast strange low flying objects were reported almost nightly by people of all ages and walks of life. These sketches compiled by a NICAP researcher represent a small sample of hundreds of investigated cases in which truly unknown objects were judged to have been involved. As the year progressed the number of reports rose dramatically. On the night of August 2, thousands of people in 4 Midwestern states witnessed spectacular aerial displays by large formations of UFOs. That same night a multicolored disc was photographed in Tulsa, Oklahoma while several persons watched it perform low altitude maneuvers. This picture was extensively analyzed, pronounced authentic, and later published by Life magazine and many newspapers. But the year's most incredible development was yet to come. On the evening of November 9 hundreds of UFO sightings were reported throughout the northeast.

In New York State luminous objects were seen hovering over 3 very significant locations. New York City, a Syracuse relay station, and a Niagara Falls power plant.

Within moments of the Syracuse sighting 9 northeastern states and parts of Canada experienced the largest power failure in history. Media accounts including those by NBC news, The Associated Press, and some local papers openly reported the UFO sightings and in a few cases suggested that they be investigated as a possible cause of the blackout. However, before this speculation could gain much momentum the Federal Power Commission announced that the problem had been caused by a broken relay in a Canadian power plant. This answer was accepted by the press and public and the UFO angle was quickly forgotten. But, the official explanation was untrue.

Major Keyhoe reports that a private investigation by the utilities industry later concluded that the relay had NOT broken, but had been tripped by a huge, unexplainable surge of power. The only major paper which attempted to follow up on a possible UFO connection with the outage was the Boston Record America. But the paper's editors told a NICAP investigator that shortly after publishing this account of the Niagara Falls sighting they had been called by an Air Force officer at the Pentagon and severely reprimanded for printing the story. In any event, the public at large remained unaware of the presence of UFOs during the Great Northeast Blackout.

Filer's Files urges Congress to investigate the possibility that UFOs contributed to the Blackout. Videos and other evidence will be presented if needed. See [link to www.georgefiler.com]

The same EASTLAKE CEI power plant talked about in the above article is also the same location of the Eastlake 1988 Coast Guard Sighting!

Date March 04, 1988 - Eastlake CEI Power Plant UFO Event

This is actually a pretty famous UFO case. Coast Guard personnel responding to citizen reports of unusual aerial activity over Lake Erie on March 4, 1988, witnessed classic UFOs near Eastlake, OH. Sheila and Henry Baker were driving home with their three children about 8:35 P.M., after taking them out to dinner, and were almost home. As they neared the waterfront, Sheila noticed something hovering over the lake; they drove down to the beach to investigate and got out of the car. The moon was bright, and there was ice on the lake; Sheila could hear it cracking like claps of thunder.

Plainly visible was a huge, gunmetal gray, football-shaped, silent object rocking back and forth, blinding white light emanating from both ends. Then the object began moving, swinging one end toward the shore and descending. The Bakers became frightened, ran back to their car, and fled. When they got home, the object was still visible from a window facing the lake. Sheila hid the children in a closet, fearing that the thing might come and get them.

The object moved out over the ice and continued to descend, with red and blue lights now flashing in sequence along its lower edge. Sheila called the Eastlake police to report a UFO, and after several referrals, with no one expressing much interest, was told that unusual activity over the lake would be the responsibility of the Coast Guard. Suddenly five or six bright yellow triangular objects shot out of the center of the large object and began darting around independently (satellite objects). Once they stopped and hovered point up around the parent object, then sped away to the north, turned east, then inland toward the Perry nuclear power plant.

At this point Sheila called the Coast Guard, which sent a team to their house to investigate. Seaman James Power and Petty Officer John Knaub arrived towing a Boston Whaler (a seaworthy boat) just in case. They told the Bakers that they had seen some lights over the lake from Fairport Harbor and thought they were flares, maybe fishermen trapped out on the ice. However, when Sheila pointed to the main craft and some of the triangular objects still zipping around it, the men drove closer to the lake to investigate, accompanied by the Bakers. At the lakefront they could hear the ice rumbling and roaring.

In their incident report sent later by teletype to Coast Guard headquarters in Detroit, MI, the men were quoted as saying that "the ice was cracking and moving abnormal amounts as the object came closer to it."

Power and Knaub gave a running report on what they were seeing to their base via the two-way radio in their Chevy Suburban. The window was down, and the Bakers overheard them saying words to the effect: "Be advised the object appears to be landing on the lake . . .

There are other objects moving around it. Be advised these smaller objects are going at high rates of speed. There are no engine noises and they are very, very low."

Abruptly one of the triangles zoomed straight toward the Coast Guard vehicle, a blur of light, then veered east, straight up, and came down beside the parent object. Two witnesses in separate locations also reported seeing the triangles. Cindy Hale was walking her dog when she noticed a triangular object hovering overhead, and her dog began to whine and cower (animal reactions). She took the dog indoors and came back out to watch. The triangle flashed a series of multicolored lights, then accelerated and was gone without making a sound (hover-acceleration).

Tim Keck was using his astronomical telescope when one of the triangles caught his eye. He had a cheap throwaway camera with him and snapped a picture of the object before it flew away over the horizon. The photograph was analyzed by optical physicist Bruce Maccabee, who considered it to be a legitimate.

Recently Uncovered - INTERVIEW OF WITNESSES TO the 1988 Eastlake UFO, Keep in mind this UFO was witnessed and reported by two coast guard officials by the Eastlake CEI Power Plant which you have already learned was pinpointed as the Origin of the 2003 Black out!

We both saw lots of stars but no UFO's. We were about 75 miles from lake Erie and outside the entire blackout.

It probably was a UFO using zero-point energy to power up. That is what causes cars not to start, and massive blackouts.

A new kindle book offers a new explanation of the 2003 blackout that affected nearly 50 million people in the Eastern United States and Canada.

But the explanation is not conventional and might appear absurd to many. It is based on prophecy, some of which has already been fulfilled.

The new book on how Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has outlasted most of his Western “enemies” and is closing in on President Barack Obama says the blackout was an omen to members of the Zion Christian Church that their leader, Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi, was indeed a Man of God.

A prophet in the church had prophesied two months before the blackout that during the Bishop’s visit to the United States there would be a big omen.

At the same sitting the prophet also called on church elders to advise followers that they must leave politics alone as Mugabe was going to outlast his enemies.

The whole story and how Mugabe has survived against all odds is told in a 10600-word kindle book: Can Obama outlast Mugabe?

More stories of the trials and tribulations Mugabe has gone through and how he has survived even when he had given up are on the blog dedicated to the book.
