Federal Judge To Hear 'Heavenly' Case
By Sandy Semans, Sentinel Staff
E-Mail: Sandy.nul

Three defendants scheduled to appear before Judge Terrence Boyle
in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North
Carolina in July might just touch on close encounters of the
fourth kind.

Dr Steven M. Greer, Emery S. Smith And Deborah Foch have been
charged in connection with alegedly operating a commercial
venture on a national wildlife refuge.

Charges against Greer include operation of a commercial
enterprise on a national wildlife refuge, trespassing on a
national wildlife refuge, and violation of "daylight use only"
regulation which prohibits all nighttime activities on Pea
Island except fishing.

Smith and Foch are charged with Interfernce with persons
engaging in authorized activity, trepassing on a national
wildlife refuge, and violation of the "daylight use only"
regulation for Pea Island.

The charges are all related to an incident that occurred in
April 2010.

On the evening of Monday, April 12, 2010, when law enforcement
officers from responding agencies crossed the dunes on Pea
Island National Wildlife Refuge to see why so many people were
on the beach at night, they were stunned to see more than three
dozen people in a circle holding up light sticks, a source at
the Sheriff's Office told the Sentinel the following day. The
light-holders weren't anxious to give out information, but, said
the source, the event had something to do with UFOs.

The participants were taking an Ambassador Training course held
on the Outer Banks from April 11-17. The classes, held in
several locations across the country, are sponsored by the
Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI),
part of the Disclosure Project, headed by Greer, a former
physician who has been leading such programs for more than a

A Web site publicizing the event described the North Carolina
location: "It's a wonderful location, with amazing energy and
mystery, starry skies, and a great place to practice the CSETI
ET Contact Protocols while learning to be an Ambassador to the
Universe... This is the fourth year that we will be returning to
this location, near where the Wright Brothers flew the first
powered airplane in 1903. It is fitting that we will be
practicing the CSETI ET Contact Protocols in this historic
location!... This nearly week-long intensive prepares you to
make open, peaceful contact with Extraterrestrial civilizations
as a citizen-diplomat from Earth."

Topics covered during the week-long program included:

=B0 "CSETI CE-5 Protocols to initiate contact with ETs using
consciousness, coherent thought, lasers, electromagnetic
signals, and group processes;

=B0 "The nature of mind and how to experience the unbounded,
cosmic aspect of consciousness always within us. This will
include specific meditation techniques to experience cosmic
consciousness, achieve natural remote viewing and precognition
abilities, and other aspects of higher states of consciousness;

=B0 "A direct experience of the structure of the cosmos that
integrates the unified field of cosmic awareness, space/time,
matter, electromagnetism, and the subtle realms of thought/light
- and how these interface with ET technologies and communication

=B0 "Practice with the CSETI CE-5 Protocols and learning to
discern ET spacecraft from man-made classified technologies.
This includes field work out under the stars with Dr. Greer;

=B0 "An in-depth understanding of who is behind ET related secrecy
- and why;

=B0 "How to create a CSETI Contact team in your area and initiate
on-going peaceful contact with ET civilizations;

=B0 "The new and wondrous sciences dealing with free energy from
the vacuum, antigravity, and other technologies that will give
us a sustainable, peaceful future on Earth; and

=B0 "A glimpse of the future: How humanity will evolve over the
next 500,000 years to become enlightened people who will become
Extraterrestrial visitors to other planets."

The cost was approximately $1,000 per person to register, plus
the cost of reading materials required. However, that cost
doesn't include travel expenses, lodging and meals, said Foch,
coordinator of the programs, to the Sentinel in 2010.

Foch confirmed at that time that the program had been held on
the Outer Banks for the past four years and that a total of 30
to 40 participants and staff attended each session. She said
that the participants ranged in age from 20 to 80 and are of
differing backgrounds varying from students to professionals to

The Ambassador registration page included the Web site address
of the Outer Banks Visitor Bureau to help registrants find out
more about the area and lodging. Foch said in some locations
where the programs are held, the sponsor sometimes blocks rooms
in hotels or helps make other arrangements.

Asked why the programs weren't advertised locally so that
residents could participate, she replied that they would
advertise if the event was a two-hour evening lecture for
hundreds of people.

Several such events are held throughout the country at places
such as Joshua Tree National Park where programs have been held
since 1996 and Mt. Shasta. Foch confirmed that most if not all
programs take place on national wildlife refuges and national

"We like to have access to less populated areas," she explained.

She estimated that 25 to 50% of the attendees are repeats. To
use the federal property for commercial ventures, proper permits
must be obtained. It appears NO commercial permits were obtained
for these events.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesperson Bonnie Strawser told
the Sentinel in 2010 that a "SPECIAL USE PERMIT" MUST be
obtained before any such activity can take place.

"We require a SUP for all commercial activities that occur on
the refuge, but we don't permit all activities.

"We turn down requests for permits that do not meet the
requirements for on-refuge activities. The activities are
evaluated - activity. time, and location - by impact on wildlife
and habitat.

Activities must be wildlife-dependent. We DON'T allow/would not
permit non-wildlife dependent commercial recreational activities
- thus would not likely issue a permit for a UFO program -
commercial or otherwise.

Strawser said that there are NO exceptions to the permit
requirement. "The refuge manager has the descretion to waive or
reduce the fee - which can be large - if he/she deems the
activity to be beneficial to the refuge - for example, the
filming of a wildlife production to teach people about refuges
or wildlife."

There has NEVER been a license issued for this type of program,
she said. The same week the group was found on Pea Island, they
also attempted to access the beach farther south in the National
Seashore, which is managed by the National Park Service, said
Steve Thompson, special park uses coordinator for the National
Park Service Cape Hatteras Group.

"Law enforcement turned them back and told them they had to have
a permit. We wouldn't issue a permit for that because it does
not fit with our mission," said Thompson. "The only training
that we allow is scientific which helps result in the best
management of the park - we work a lot with university

Earlier this year, the group noted on its website that plans for
another Outer Banks visit were still being formulated and would
be announced at a later date. However, NO such plans have since
