The Archuleta Mesa in New Mexico has seen its fair share of strange incidents, as residents of Dulce, New Mexico can attest. Dulce, a rural border town on the Colorado-New Mexico border, is the tribal headquarters of the Jicarilla Apache Reservation and is relatively unpopulated (Dulce has a population of only roughly 3,000 people).
According to various claims, it is the location of the top-secret Dulce Base, a combined scientific and military complex run by humans and ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳s.
Rumors of a base in Dulce first surfaced in 1979. At Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Paul Bennewitz, a local electrician with a degree in physics, was examining sensitive government initiatives.
Construction and monitoring of sensitive radio equipment was a part of his study. He started intercepting unusual radio signals around 1979. The conversations, as far as he could tell, were between government entities and another party, which he eventually discovered was not from this planet. The signals came from near Dulce, on a mesa.
When a second report corroborated the hypothesis of a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s in the region, the tale gained traction. State Trooper Gabe Valdez of New Mexico has been investigating many strange occurrences of damaged animals around the mesa. These weren’t some ordinary cow mutilations.
Valdez observed that abandoned gas masks and light sticks were frequently spotted at the area. In one case, he discovered a strange fetus inside one of the corpses. The fetus resembled a “cross between a person, a monkey, and a frog,” according to Valdez. According to experts in ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ species, the fetus was the abandoned body of a malicious reptiloid (aka R̳e̳p̳t̳i̳l̳i̳a̳n̳) a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳.
Phil Schneider is the first to speak up.
Phil Schneider, 35, came forw̳a̳r̳d soon after, claiming to have worked at the Dulce Base facility. Schneider did have military links, according to investigators. Oscar Schneider, a United States Navy Captain who worked in nuclear medicine and helped construct the first nuclear submarine, was his father.
Morrison-Knudsen had Schneider working on a project to dig four huge holes that were connected by tunnels, according to Schneider.
His role was to go down into the holes and examine the rock composition in order to provide recommendations for next steps. Because of the unusual presence of military men – Green Berets and other special forces – he was w̳a̳r̳y of the work from the start.
Workers discovered a massive manmade cavern while drilling. The edifice was massive and unmistakably man-made. Schneider was admiring the cavern when he was abruptly confronted by a seven-foot-tall gray ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳.
Schneider drew his revolver and fired a shot at the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳, who retaliated with an unknown weapon of its own. More a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s and military men engaged in a gun battle.
67 employees and military men were murdered in the melee, with Phillip Schneider being one of just three persons to survive. Schneider said he was injured in the incident and revealed scars on his chest to back up his claim. He said the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳’s weapon was to blame for the oddly shaped injuries.
Dulce Base, according to Schneider, has seven floors connected by a subway system. Schneider claims that the subway system runs all the way to the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
According to him, the base is the hub of a ground operation between the US and ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳s. Thousands of a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s dwelt in the underground complex, according to Schneider. In return for superior ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ technology, they were permitted to experiment on humans.
Schneider began speaking out about ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳s, unidentified flying objects, and government cover-ups. He launched a newspaper named The A̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ Digest with four other males. The magazine was well-received by the paranormal community and had a broad distribution.
Schneider mentioned in the book that there were underground ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ bases all throughout the earth. The bases were built with a large quantity of black budget money.
One of the creators of The A̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ Digest was discovered deceased in a park in Portland, Oregon, in 1993. He’d taken a bullet to the mouth. Schneider said his buddy was assassinated in order to silence them. His claims were dismissed by the police.
Schneider has been lecturing throughout the country about government cover-ups, black budgets, and U̳F̳O̳s for several years. Schneider constantly stated that he was aw̳a̳r̳e that his life was in jeopardy.
Schneider’s body was discovered three years after his business partner’s de̳a̳t̳h̳, on January 17, 1996. The cause of de̳a̳t̳h̳ was determined to be a stroke by doctors. Surprisingly, the decision was eventually modified to suicide. Schneider allegedly wrapped a rubber catheter tubing three times around his neck and knotted it with a knot, according to investigators.
Schneider’s assertions have been verified.
Thomas Costello, claiming to be a security guard at the base, came forw̳a̳r̳d shortly after Schneider’s unexpected de̳a̳t̳h̳. Costello verified Schneider’s claims, adding that both humans and a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s carried out gruesome experiments at the location. The caverns on the mesa had been populated by reptoid a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s for centuries, according to Costello.
Costello’s comments sparked a media frenzy, with stories about him appearing in newspapers across the country. Schneider’s family unexpectedly rushed onto the scene following Costello’s public presence.
Family members came forw̳a̳r̳d after years of quiet to say that Phil Schneider was mad. The media frenzy died down, and the family fell silent once more.
Tonto National Forest is home to a top-secret military installation.
Other instances of hidden underground military outposts have been discovered by researchers. A bizarre report from the US Forest Service’s Southwestern Region office in Albuquerque, New Mexico, was discovered thanks to a Freedom of Information Act request.
It was a strange call from a man who claimed to have seen workmen constructing an underground “a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ base” near the Tonto National Forest west of Phoenix, Arizona. The following email was issued to all US Forest personnel, according to the report:
“David received a call at the front desk this morning from a man caller alleging the development of a secret government base past Pinal Creek upstream from the Salt River Canyon” (Upstream from Roosevelt Lake).
The caller claimed to have observed construction cranes coming out of the cliffs, small stealth planes and U̳F̳O̳s, a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s and humans cooperating on the site, and a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s devouring people.
He claims to have images of some of these materials, including a dismembered head. The caller stated that he is 60 years old, is not insane, and does not use drugs. He claimed he’d previously phoned the ‘office at the lake,’ but he didn’t know if they were turning the other cheek or if they’d been bought off.”
A similar report was discovered in the files of a U̳F̳O̳ investigation group. Scott Heckman had filed the report, which detailed a facility in the national forest where dozens of individuals were believed to have “gone missing.” The following was taken from the report:
“I’ve been able to track the craft down to its most important base in the Tonto National Forest.” While camping in the Sierra Ancha Wilderness, I spotted this. The U̳F̳O̳s continued to fly down into the basin every two minutes.
“They flew low, maybe two thousand feet above the ground, out of the southeast.” The location is used for training by A-10s during the day. Refueling is also done here at all hours of the day and night.
“Several inexplicable disappearances have happened in Cochise County over the previous 30 years, and these locations have been plagued by them.” People’s identification, money, and keys are left in abandoned cars. The people that live there have inexplicably vanished, never to be seen again.”
