CONSPIRACY theorists have claimed that an American base is hidden in a mountain and where aliens killed 60 American soldiers in a secret war.
Ufologists are convinced that the remote village of Dulce, New Mexico is home to a seven-story military bunker that rivals Nevada’s Area 51 for wild cover-up claims about extraterrestrial people on Earth.
Dulce is a small town with a population of less than 3,000, and the Jicarilla Apache Reservation tribal headquarters.
But it’s also home to what bonkers conspiracy theorists say is a sprawling multi-story base in the Archuleta Mesa Mountains, when humans teamed up with aliens after first fighting for decades.
Stories about foreign activity first emerged in the mid-1970s.
One of them was reported by New Mexico State Trooper Gabriel Valdez, who said he had seen a UFO before finding a series of disturbing cattle.
The officer claimed that inside a dead cow he found what he claimed to be a hybrid that “looked like a human, a monkey and a frog”.
Then, in 1979, it is alleged that workers excavating a military bunker accidentally discovered cave-dwelling aliens—which triggered a major battle that killed several American soldiers.
And the conspiracy theorist behind the far-fetched story also claimed there were war scars to prove it, proudly showing the missing fingers on his left hand that he claimed were detonated by a laser gun.
Self-styled whistle-blower Philip Schneider was working on the construction of a massive underground Cold War base near Dulce when he claimed that he and his engineer team had broken into an ancient cave system where “gray” extraterrestrials had killed them. A base was established.
Schneider also said that he encountered seven-foot-tall creatures that smelled like burning garbage, which prompted him to pull on his sidearm that he was carrying.
Opening fire, he claimed to have killed two people before being struck by “some sort of plasma weapon”.
He survived, but claimed to have lost several fingers. Meanwhile the army immediately called in the special forces.
A major battle ensued when American special forces, who were stationed nearby, arrived at the scene.
Sixty people and several “aliens” are said to have died in the shelling.
However – despite his claims – no definitive proof of his statements was ever found.
However Schneider would take his story to the grave and would appear regularly at UFO conventions in the 90s when he “went in public” for the first time.
He died in 1996, shortly after what was officially deemed a “suicide” – although many of his followers believe he was actually banged for the whistle.
“Greys” in UFO lore are one of the most popular “types” of aliens—known for their slim bodies, bulging eyes, pale skin, and large craniums.
These are the aliens who allegedly crashed during the infamous Roswell incident in 1947.
Schneider later said that there is a war going on under the earth’s crust and it has been going on since that time.
Schneider alleges that 1,477 underground bases – called Deep Underground Military Bases (DUMBs) – have been set up to conduct warfare, costing $17 billion each worldwide, all with a secret black budget. is funded by.
But Schneider said that some of the aliens have made peace and cooperated with the Earthlings, with the base he helped build a laboratory where terrifying experiments were conducted on humans.
Schneider gave extensive lectures on the subject, spinning a vast web of theories about US government “black projects”.
He was found dead in an apparent suicide in Oregon in 1996, although he had always told his family that he would never kill himself if he was found dead.
This has raised questions about conspiracy theories that he was killed for blowing the whistle.
Another key player in Dulce Base Conspiracy Theory is a man named Dr. Paul Benevitz.
He reportedly became convinced that State Trooper Valdez’s reports of cattle mutilating around the area were the result of experiments conducted by aliens.
He then began picking up electronic signals allegedly intercepted in the Dulce, which he believed were emanating from beneath.
Their claims were published in 1988 in the infamous tabloid The Weekly World News – claiming that aliens were “conducting genetic experiments on human guinea pigs”.
UFO sightings have also been reported in the area over the years, with some locals photographing the alleged craft.
And stories of deep, sprawling underground bases across America are a popular lynch pin of conspiracy theories — popping up in QAnon’s wider mythology lately.
But none of these claims have been given solid evidence and have been widely dismissed as false.
