Ep 43- The Extraordinary Life and Strange Death of James Forrestal – Part 2

On episode 43 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we continue our journey with Peter Robbins through the mysterious death of James Forrestal. This is PART 2 of the series.

On May 22nd, 1949, Forrestal fell to his death from the sixteenth-floor window of Bethesda Naval Hospital, where he was treated for “depression”. An official U.S. Navy Medical Review Board convened on his death, after examining all doctors and witnesses who were in the vicinity. They could not establish the reason for Forrestal’s fall. The peculiar circumstances of Forrestal’s death, and the U.S. government’s withholding of the complete report of the review board until 2004 has led to much speculation and controversy.

What many are not aware of is that Forrestal has also been connected to the controversial MJ-12 group, an alleged secret committee of scientists, military leaders, and government officials, formed in 1947 by an executive order by then U.S. President, Harry Truman, to facilitate recovery and investigation of alien spacecraft. Before his departure as Secretary of Defense, Forrestal had a mental breakdown, which ultimately led to his untimely death. What did he know? What was he told? And what exactly happened to him in the hospital as he plunged downward into tragedy and questionable history?

    Harry Truman was a 33rd degree Freemason of the southern jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite. Forrestal was Roman Catholic. Like John F. Kennedy, the two are like oil and water. The history of these two factions goes back to the Templars being burnt at the stake by the church back in 1307. The history is pretty amazing. James Forrestal was put into Bethesda with the full knowledge (not his) that he would not come out alive. Same as Senator Joseph McCarthy, who was fighting a battle too big for one man. McCarthy knew this nation was being transformed into a communist country and that communists had hijacked control of the government. One world totalitarian socialist government is the goal and whoever gets in the way will be silenced. It is the Luciferian philosophy that man can himself become God. The alien agenda is everything but extraterrestrial. The “alien” threat will be used to usher in the one world government, because everyone will have to submit to draconian legislation in order to fight the threat. Same goes for climate change. The alien agenda and climate change are serving the same purpose. To destroy freedom. The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells was adapted to radio in 1938 on Orson Wells’ show and was used as a psychological operation to see how the public would react to this scenario. People actually committed suicide, shot at water towers, and literally ran for the hills when they heard the broadcast. Man made alien invasion will be used to help in the transition to one world government. You can take that to the bank.

    Further, the last corpsman testified that he was never writing anything on his watch. He wasn't even reading anything. Look at the testimony of Harrison, the corpsman on duty. He is explicit about this.

    Here's a question. Why weren't the police called in to investigate if a crime had been committed. The investigation of the review board was simply to determine if there was negligence, not murder. But even if you die in your home, the police are called to determine if there was any foul play; but in the case of Forrestal, a man who allegedly jumped out a 16th floor window, there was no crime investigation by the police.

    Always fun to tune in occasionally to these paranoid fans of conspiracies. Forrestal was a crappy Navy secretary and a very, very disturbed man all his life.

    I am still alive! I was James Forrestal in my previous incarnation and I still maintain an interest in disseminating the truth about ET's and the cabal that has fought to preserve this great secret!

    I find these historical accounts fascinating.
    President Truman is my cousin via 3 lines on my father's side, so I'm his cousin of varying degrees 3 times. Strange family I have.
