You are invited to Northland MUFON meetings

Do you know what MUFON is? MUFON stands for The Mutual UFO Network. MUFON is a 501(c)3 organization that has chapters in almost every US state. MUFON was established in the Midwest in 1969.
The mission statement of MUFON is as follows:
1)  Investigate UFO sightings and collect the data in the MUFON Database for use by researchers worldwide.
2)  Promote research on UFOs to discover the true nature of the phenomenon, with an eye towards scientific breakthroughs, and improving life on our planet.
3) Educate the public on the UFO phenomenon and its potential impact on society.
The Northland chapter of the Mutual UFO Network covers the northern half of Minnesota, all the way to the Arrowhead and the entire state of North Dakota! There is a Minnesota MUFON chapter but UFO/UAP enthusiasts in northern Minnesota and north Dakota wanted to be able to attend meetings in person without having to travel to the Twin Cities. It took a lot of discussion, traveling, sacrifice, money and hard work but the Northland now has its own chapter where people can gather with like-minded UFO enthusiasts to learn and share their stories.

There are many, many accounts of UFO sightings and evidence in Minnesota and North Dakota. Most notable is the 1979 Marshall County deputy sheriff incident, which was widely reported in local and national media.
MUFON has professional Field Investigators who will contact you for more information if you have a sighting. All information is confidential. While many sightings can be explained, it is nice to have a resource of knowledgeable individuals to help investigate these sightings. MUFON is dedicated to isolating the factual information and evidence from each sighting and recording everything in their massive database. Members are able to access this database to compare evidence from decades ago to the present.

Historically, only about 10% of incidents are regarded as unexplained but in recent years, there are approximately 20-30% that have confounded experts. People are coming forward with their stories that they haven’t been able to talk about before. Military whistleblowers are even coming forward in mainstream news. We do recognize that there are many older retired military whose stories have been out there for decades and are well known to the MUFON and the UFO community in general.

Meetings are comprised of a brief introduction to MUFON followed by a presentation. Guest speakers have been some of the heavy hitters in the UFO/UAP phenomenon including Kathleen Marden (daughter of Betty and Barney Hill), Charles J. Hall, and other highly regarded people in the UFO community. There are more distinguished guests upcoming each month in 2024 and the full schedule is here on the website.

The annual MUFON symposium is being held in Dallas, TX. This year’s theme is “The Battle for UFO Transparency”. Northland MUFON will be represented there and we hope to be able to secure even more interesting people for presentations.
Northland MUFON invites you to attend our next meeting, on Saturday, May 25th from 2:00 – 4:30 with social hour beginning at 1:30. It will be hosted at the Fargo Library- Northport in Fargo, ND, and the VFW Post 1720 in Grand Rapids, MN. We’ll have Earl Grey Anderson presenting “My Known Unknowns.” Earl Grey Anderson is a prominent figure in the field of Ufology, known for his work as a MUFON field investigator, State Director of Southern California, and member of MUFON’s STAR Team and Experiencer Resource Team (ERT). He has been involved in investigating numerous High Strangeness cases, including one presented at MUFON’s “Cases of the Year” at the 2021 Symposium. Because the Northland MUFON chapter covers such a big geographical area, we offer Zoom links on the website to every monthly meeting as well. If you are in Grand Rapids, the meeting is at the VFW Post 1720 west on Highway 2, if you live near Fargo, come out to the Fargo Public library, Northport!

In June, our meeting is on Saturday the 22nd, with Rich Hoffman as the special guest. Rich is a former Defense Contractor that has worked at the NSA. He is also a Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU) Executive Board Member. Rich will be giving his presentation of “Investigating UFO’s for 5 Decades. What has Changed?” This should be a very interesting meeting as Rich will present this from a scientific perspective.

Northland MUFON would love to see you there either in person or via Zoom!

Well folks, it happened as predicted! Iran just attacked Israel on April 13th which means the warning “Don’t” didn’t work nor will it in the future. Joe Biden has been using this 4-letter word since Hamas attacked Israel on October 7th. I just saw a montage of Biden’s cabinet members (Austin, Kirby, Blinken, etc.) all saying this 4-letter word. It looked so comical that it could have been a sketch on SNL.

Most of you I am sure have heard the phrase “peace through strength” which has been used for many years and many administrations (except for our current one). We have seen the opposite with Biden! Can you imagine if Biden had been our President at the beginning of WWII with him telling Hitler “Don’t.” Or, Japan’s Emperor, Hirohito, prior to Pearl Harbor? Both would have laughed in his face and that is exactly what is happening today!

At the beginning of the Hamas attack on Israel I predicted that this could lead us to WWIII. After 6+ months of that war, we are getting very close. America needs to defend Israel (against the pro-Palestine members of Congress and protestors) or we will suffer.
Why doesn’t Biden use the word “Don’t” on illegal aliens at our boarder? We know why............Votes!!
