    This is the penultimate war that was ever waged. Our very existence is as a result of it. The good guys lost unfortunately. We have been slaves of Rome the shadow government since. As time warriors we must right the wrongs from the past. Only then can we achieve true dominion. Rome wrote the history The traitor Josephus was the scribe. The archeology doesn't support his version of events ergo he lied. All that we know was based upon that lie and the mind control we have been exposed too. Plato's laws of logic discern scripture. There are two dialectics. They are glaringly obvious. If you believe in Jesus accept his calling the rock of the church Satan and see them for their works. God said the temples were for the uncircumcized. Call him a liar and accept the words of men or embrace his footstool. For only God can release us from this system of bondage Rome. Altars, idols, temples and money are not the way. Scripture says that. The Lord is waiting for the faithful. 

    The siege was lost here. Eleazar Ben Yair lost it by not firing on the slaves building the ramp. They were weaponized by Lucius Flavius Silva. As difficult as it is the enemies weapons have to be rendered inoperative. In the modern era they are the bodies and the memories of the sacrificed in the false flag attacks. You cannot take in the power of the weaponized. It will destroy and enslave us. 


    Masada is an American television miniseries that aired on ABC in April 1981. Advertised by the network as an "ABC Novel for Television," it was a fictionalized account of the historical siege of the Masada citadel in Israel by legions of the Roman Empire in AD 73. The TV series' script is based on the novel The Antagonists by Ernest Gann, with a screenplay written by Joel Oliansky. The siege ended when the Roman armies entered the fortress, only to discover the mass suicide by the Jewish defenders when defeat became imminent.

    The miniseries starred Peter O'Toole as Roman legion commander Lucius Flavius Silva, Peter Strauss as the Jewish commander Eleazar ben Ya'ir, and Barbara Carrera as Silva's Jewish mistress. It was O'Toole's first appearance in an American miniseries.

    The music for Parts I and II were composed by Jerry Goldsmith. Because of myriad production delays, Goldsmith was forced to move on to other previously contracted scoring commitments. Parts III and IV were composed by Morton Stevens, based on the themes and motifs Goldsmith had written.

    Masada was filmed on location at the site of the ancient fortress, in the Judean Desert, Israel. Remains of a ramp, created during the filming to simulate the ramp built by the Romans to take the fortress, can still be seen at the site. ABC, concerned that the audience would be unfamiliar with the historical background of the story, commissioned a 30-minute documentary, Back To Masada. Starring Peter O'Toole, it recounts the history of the Jewish revolt against Rome. The network gave the documentary to its affiliates to run in the weeks before the premiere of the miniseries.

    Part II

    Learning of the breaking of the truce upon his return from Rome, Silva marches the 5000 men of the 10th Legion to the foot of Masada and lays a siege to the apparently impregnable fortress. He directs Quadratus and Merovius on a suicidal assault of the fortress in order to remove them from his forces and make them an example to any others who share their political leanings. Rubrius Gallus directs that a ramp be built to almost the summit of the mountain intent on breaking through the Masada walls with the aid of a 50-foot siege tower that is being constructed out of sight of the rebels. When Eleazar successfully attacks the Roman soldiers building the ramp with catapulted stones, Silva quickly rounds up hundreds of Jews from the surrounding area to use as slaves to continue the work, believing correctly that Eleazar will not attack fellow Jews. This makes Eleazar change his tactics to psychological warfare, allowing the heat of the sun and revealing the surplus of water on Masada to demoralize the Roman troops. Also, he acts to capitalize on the Romans' belief in reading the future from the entrails of sacrificed goats, leading a party through the Roman sentries at night to feed the goats maggots, knowing that their discovery during the rituals will be seen as a bad omen. Eleazar's problems are further compounded by his own religious doubts and opposition from the more pacifist groups on Masada.

    Masada (Hebrew: מצדה metsada, "fortress") is an ancient fortification in the Southern District of Israel situated on top of an isolated rock plateau, akin to a mesa. It is located on the eastern edge of the Judaean Desert, overlooking the Dead Sea 20 km (12 mi) east of Arad.

    Herod the Great built two palaces for himself on the mountain and fortified Masada between 37 and 31 BCE.

    According to Josephus, the siege of Masada by Roman troops at the end of the First Jewish–Roman War ended in the mass suicide of 960 people, the Sicarii rebels and their families who were hiding there.

    Masada is one of Israel's most popular tourist attractions.

    Archaeology vs. Josephus

    No Hasmonean buildings found

    Yadin's team could detect no architectural remains of the Hasmonean period, the only findings firmly dated to this period being the numerous coins of Alexander Jannaeus. Researchers have speculated that the southwestern block of the Western Palace and the auxiliary buildings east and south of it could be Hasmonean, relying on similarities to the Twin Palaces at Jericho. However, their excavators could make no archaeological discovery able to support this presumption.

    Inaccurate description

    According to Shaye Cohen, archaeology shows that Josephus' account is "incomplete and inaccurate". Josephus only writes of one palace; archaeology reveals two. His description of the northern palace contains several inaccuracies, and he gives exaggerated figures for the height of the walls and towers. Josephus' account is contradicted by the "skeletons in the cave, and the numerous separate fires".

    Historicity of mass suicide

    According to Kenneth Atkinson, no "archaeological evidence that Masada's defenders committed mass suicide" exists.


    I presume Josephus lied. I believe he turned in his compatriots to be either arrested and killed or ambushed and killed. For that he was rewarded with status and privilege by Rome.

    It appears agents from THRUSH have conspired to pull The Man From UNCLE. I found a source, but the media player jumps to the dead file a lot. This episode came with a paranormal message. Actress Carol Wayne was murdered in Mexico in 1985. She was drowned. After watching the show a voice from beyond said look into my background. I did. She married Barry Feinstein a noted photographer of the rich and famous. He was commissioned to photograph Marilyn Monroe's death scene focusing on the pill bottle. Why? Wouldn't the police photographer have been good enough? It needed a studio shot. On The Tonight Show Carol said she didn't swim. It seems readily apparant to those in the know she knew the truth about Marilyn's murder and being a popular TV personality she was going to reveal what she knew. They silenced her. The order published a song and grim reaper image commemorating the event. 

    Now the world can know, and she can rest in peace. Stunningly beautiful, terribly vulnerable, certifiably courageous she was another one of many murdered to conceal the crimes of the era. I heard the voice. I dared to look. I found the reason. The paranormal is somehow normal to me.


    This one seems stable. 

    The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is an American television series broadcast on NBC from September 22, 1964, to January 15, 1968. It follows secret agents, played by Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, who work for a secret international counter espionage and law and enforcement agency called U.N.C.L.E. Originally, co-creator Sam Rolfe wanted to leave the meaning of U.N.C.L.E. ambiguous so it could refer to either "Uncle Sam" or the United Nations. Concerns by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer legal department about using "U.N." for commercial purposes resulted in the producers' clarification that U.N.C.L.E. was an acronym for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. Each episode had an "acknowledgement" to the U.N.C.L.E. in the end titles.

    The series centered on a two-man troubleshooting team working for U.N.C.L.E. (United Network Command for Law and Enforcement): American Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn), and Soviet Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum). Leo G. Carroll played Alexander Waverly, the British head of the organization (Number One of Section One). Barbara Moore joined the cast as Lisa Rogers in the fourth season.

    The series, though fictional, achieved such cultural prominence that props, costumes and documents, and a video clip are in the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library's exhibit on spies and counterspies. Similar U.N.C.L.E. exhibits are in the museums of the Central Intelligence Agency and other US agencies and organizations gathering intelligence.

    U.N.C.L.E.'s adversary was T.H.R.U.S.H. (W.A.S.P. in the pilot movie - not to be confused with the World Aquatic Security Patrol from Gerry Anderson's Stingray). The original series never divulged what T.H.R.U.S.H. represented, but in several U.N.C.L.E. novels by David McDaniel, it is the Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity,described as founded by Col. Sebastian Moran after the death of Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls in the Sherlock Holmes story, "The Final Problem".

    Frank Cariago (Bernard Fein), the U.S. head of a crime syndicate, is under pressure from Uncle Giuliano (J. Carrol Naish). Cariago decides to buy a movie production directed by Sheldon Veblan (Shelley Berman) so his girlfriend, Ginger Laveer (Carol Wayne) can have the starring role. But the picture is a disguised plan to drop a bomb on the family's biggest rival – Las Vegas. (One of the few episodes in which THRUSH is not the villain.)

    Excerpt from Carol Wayne website )

    According to published reports, Carol Wayne was on vacation in Santiago Bay, Mexico with Los Angeles car salesman Edward Durston on January 10, 1985 when (it has been reported) the couple had a argument about where they were going to stay that evening (they were scheduled to fly back to Los Angeles the next morning).

    Durston checked into a hotel and Wayne reportedly left to walk down the beach (to cool off?). That was the last time anyone saw her alive. Local fisherman Abel de Dios found her limp body floating in the shallow bay waters three days later.

    Mexican authorities wondered how Carol Wayne came to drown in waters four feet deep, fully clothed. There were no cuts or abrasions, so a fall from the nearby rocks was ruled out. The coroner stated that death occurred 3 - 4 days earlier and the body tested negative for drugs and alcohol.

    Suspicions were raised: Carol Wayne had to be identified by workers at the Las Hadas resort where the couple had been staying earlier in the week. When locals went to look for Wayne's traveling companion, they discovered that Edward Durston checked out three days earlier - leaving Wayne's luggage at the airport with a message that she would pick up her bags in the morning.

    As an aside, many readers may remember the (alleged) LSD related death of Art Linkletter's daughter Diane. She jumped (or fell) from a sixth floor apartment building in 1969.

    Art Linkletter basically ended his successful television career when he started crusading against drugs with a fervor that made it hard for middle America to find the afternoon talk show host funny anymore.

    Not that it necessarily means anything, but Diane Linkletter's companion the night she was killed was Edward Durston.

    According to early police claims, Durston was friends with Abigail Folger and on "speaking" terms with Voityck...he possibly knew Sharon Tate....from The Daily Reporter - October 10, 1969:

    The war was with Rome against God's people. It still is. Rome waged actual, political and psychological warfare against God's people. Much if not all we know comes from that demon seed. The only hope for God's people is to undo the wrongs of the past and make them victories. Then the dead did not die in vain. 

    We see the insipid Google swine masters of the marvelous silicon from Satan have taken issue with the lesson plan of the great war against the Jews by the imperial Rome the illustrious anti-Christ state of godly Caesar's. We send you to the mountain with this link to enjoin the struggle of the ages still waged as oppression against we the people.

    Part I

    In the year 70 AD, with the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the second temple, the Jewish rebellion against Roman occupation is declared over. But Eleazar ben Ya'ir and his family flee the city vowing that the Judean War is not ended. Eleazar and his followers make their headquarters on top of the mountain fortress of Masada. From there they conduct raids on Roman occupied villages in the south of Palestine. These guerrilla attacks threaten the credibility of the declared Roman victory. The commanding general of the 10th Legion, Cornelius Flavius Silva, arranges a meeting with Eleazar to negotiate a truce. Returning to Rome, Silva's hopes to implement a truce in Judea are quashed by the Emperor Vespasian because of political pressures in the Roman Senate. Silva is sent back to Judea after securing the services of veteran Siege Commander Rubrius Gallus. Silva is also informed that his second in command, General Marcus Quadratus, and Head Tribune Merovius, are spies for the emperor's political enemy. While Silva is still in Rome, through the treachery of these two men, the truce is violently broken by the Romans.

    Mission: Impossible is an American television series that was created and initially produced by Bruce Geller. It chronicles the missions of a team of secret government agents known as the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). In the first season, the team is led by Dan Briggs, played by Steven Hill; Jim Phelps, played by Peter Graves, takes charge for the remaining seasons. A hallmark of the series shows Briggs or Phelps receiving his instructions on a recording that then self-destructs, followed by the theme music composed by Lalo Schifrin.

    The series was filmed and financed by Desilu Productions, and aired on the CBS network from September 1966 to March 1973. The series was reprised in 1988 for two seasons on ABC, retaining only Graves in the cast. It also inspired a series of theatrical motion pictures starring Tom Cruise, beginning in 1996.

    The series follows the exploits of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF), a small team of secret agents used for covert missions against dictators, evil organizations and (primarily in later episodes) crime lords. On occasion, the IMF also mounts unsanctioned, private missions on behalf of its members.

    The identities of the higher echelons of the organization that oversees the IMF are never revealed. Only rare cryptic bits of information are ever provided during the life of the series, such as in the third season mission "Nicole", where the IMF leader states that his instructions come from "Division Seven". In the 1980s revival, it is suggested the IMF is an independent agency of the United States government.

    "The Slave: Part 2" Lee H. Katzin William Read Woodfield & Allan Balter October 15, 1967

    Continuation of the previous episode. Barbara Bain is sold to a slave trader, and then switched with the kidnapped princess just before the auction. The princess is an English woman who has convinced her husband, the king's brother, that slavery is wrong. The IMF contrives to get the king's brother to the slave auction, where he discovers his own wife being sold at auction. The king's brother then demands an end to slave markets in his country.

    It's the height of the Cold War and the United States government is desperate to combat the spread of Communism. The CIA launches a highly classified, top secret research program into the covert use of biological and chemical agents. In simulated attacks on enemy populations, entire cities in America are contaminated with bacteria, exposing millions of Americans to germ warfare. But the real focus of the research is on mastering the art of mind control. Psychiatrists at top academic institutions work under secret contract with the agency. Psychiatric patients, prisoners, even unwitting members of the public are exposed to a startling array of experiments designed to facilitate interrogations, induce amnesia and program in new behavior. Every psychological technique is explored, including hypnosis, electroshock therapy and lethal cocktails of drugs. What was the extent of these brainwashing experiments? How did the CIA become involved in such far-reaching and disturbing research?

    UFO Files Episode 21 of the Series

    The Day after Roswell - by Lt. Col. Phillip J Corso

    Delve into the aftermath and repercussions of the 1947 Roswell incident, when many believe an alien spacecraft crashed in New Mexico. Based on The Day after Roswell by Lt. Col. Philip J. Corso and William Birnes, we explore if technologies like the laser, fiber optics, the integrated circuit, super-strong fibers, Kevlar bullet vest proof, and night vision were developed with the aid of aliens. Career officer Corso claims his first alien encounter came on July 6, 1947, while on late-night security rounds at Ft. Riley, Kansas, where he saw bodies of EBEs (Extraterrestrial Biological Entities) inside shipping crates. In 1961, as Chief of Foreign Technology in the Army's department of Research and Development, his job included analyzing alien technology from Roswell, then introducing it into America's technological mainstream--thus, reverse-engineering alien artifacts. And we talk to many scientists involved at the time, who credit hard work, not alien contact, with these technological advances.

    The Day after Roswell - by Lt. Col. Phillip J Corso

    Full Book:

    I'm reading The Day after Roswell prepping for my next show. Col. Corso laid it out. The alien invader is the silicon chip. The EBE extraterrestrial biological entities are bio engineered 'robots.' The Roswell crash was a feint to bait us with the technology we would implant for them. Every device we have spies on us and controls us. As the 5G grid comes alive the trap will be sprung. The chip isn't the mark of the beast. It is the beast. Even without insertion, the nearest chip most likely in our phone will do the job for them. I believe Col. Corso because he was assigned the Roswell R&D project, saw things first hand and was lambasted by John McCain on a point of honor the MIA POW's from the Korean War. We're in so deep we may not be able to extricate ourselves.

    Ai (Hebrew: הָעַי‎ hā-‘āy "heap of ruins"; Douay-Rheims: Hai) was a Canaanite city. According to the Book of Joshua in the Hebrew Bible, it was conquered by the Israelites on their second attempt. The ruins of the city are popularly thought to be in the modern-day archeological site Et-Tell.

    Mount Sinai or Sin ai.

    Finding the Mountain of Moses: The Real Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia

    Page 172.

    It was as if from the year 1947 to 1980 a fundamental paradigm shift in the ability of human kind to process information took place. Computers themselves almost became something like a silicon based life form, inspiring the carbon based life forms on planet Earth to develop them, grow them, and even help them reproduce. With computer directed process control programs now in place in virtually all major industries, software that writes software, neural network based expert systems that learn from their own experience in the real world, and current experiments under way to grow almost microscopically thin silicon based chips in the weightless environment of earth orbit may be the forerunner of a time when automated orbital factories routinely grow and harvest new silicon material for microprocessors more sophisticated than we can even imagine at the present.

    Were all of this to be true, could it not be argued that the silicon wafers we recovered from Roswell were the real masters and space travelers and the EBE creatures their hosts or servants? Once implanted successfully on Earth, our culture having reached a point of readiness through its development of the first digital computers, would not the natural development stream, starting from the invention of the transistor, have carried us to the point where we achieve a symbiotic relationship with the silicon material that carries our data and enables us to become more creative and successful?

    Maybe the Roswell crash, which helped us develop the technological basis for the weapons systems to protect our planet from the EBEs, was also the mechanism for successfully implanting a completely alien non-humanoid life form that survives from host to host like a virus, a digital Ebola that we humans will carry to another planet someday. Or what if an enemy wanted to implant the perfect spying or sabotage mechanism into a culture?

    Then the implantation of the microchip based circuit into our technology by the EBEs would be the perfect method. Was it implanted as sabotage or as something akin to the gift of fire? Maybe the Roswell crash in 1947 was an event waiting to happen, like poisoned fruit dropping from the tree into a playground. Once bitten, the poison takes effect.

    God has revealed the other parts the singularity, Eisenhower's military industrial complex warning given in light of Roswell, and the Google high tech cities which are really prisons. The military industrial complex caved for short term money, power and influence at the cost of the civilization. The best option is to smash, dash and crash the silicon tech otherwise we're doomed at some point in time.

    THE SINGULARITY PROJECT The End of Mankind as We Know It

    In a joke I received the destroyers of the world today were all born 9 months after Roswell. They are: Barrack Obama, Sr. Albert A. Gore, Jr. Hillary Rodham William J. Clinton John F. Kerry Howard Dean Nancy Pelosi Dianne Feinstein Charles E. Schumer Barbara Boxer Joe Biden

    Nazi scientist Hermann Oberth stated the 'alien' craft were really time machines. A future civilization was returning for a purpose. I will be interviewing an American scientist who has just published on this next month. There is a power and a force directly human civilization behind the scenes. This is as good an analysis as any to explain everything in a grand unified theory. As they said in another classic 60's show Star Trek, you will be absorbed. We are carbon based life. The anti-life is silicon based. It is all around and waiting to be inside of us.

    Take your family off-road camping for less than half the price of a base RV.

    Recreational vehicles are comfortable, cool, and everything, but are often too expensive for the average adventure seeker. Even entry-level offerings could come close to the $100,000 mark and that’s definitely not a price everyone can afford. But don’t lose faith – there is one vehicle on the market that fits even more tight budgets.

    In fact, the Bruder EXP-4 is not a motorized vehicle but a camping trailer riding on a single-axle off-road suspension with 17-inch wheels that is ready for use on any terrain. It’s designed and built in Australia but, don’t worry, the company that makes it is happy to ship it to the United States for about $5,000.

    Like statecraft warcraft is an age old strategm. You snooze; you lose. The Port arthur attack was one of the greatest naval battles in history. The role of intelligence well displayed as the great game. Take careful note of this series since the world still experiences numerous flashpoints as we write. It is so well done it could be a training film. Pay careful attention to the ruthlessness exhibited. The law of the jungle is the supreme law.

    Reilly, Ace of Spies is a 1983 television miniseries dramatizing the life of Sidney Reilly, a Russian Jew who became one of the greatest spies ever to work for the British. Among his exploits, in the early 20th century, were the infiltration of the German General Staff in 1917 and a near-overthrow of the Bolsheviks in 1918. His reputation with women was as legendary as his genius for espionage.

    The mini series was written by Troy Kennedy Martin, and based on the 1967 book Ace of Spies by Robin Bruce Lockhart, whose father R. H. Bruce Lockhart was one of Reilly's fellow spies. Sam Neill stars as the eponymous character. The theme music is the romance movement from Dmitri Shostakovich’s The Gadfly Suite, though Shostakovitch is not actually credited (Harry Rabinowitz is credited with the music).

    2 "Prelude to War" Martin Campbell Troy Kennedy Martin 7 September 1983

    1904: Reilly is stationed in Port Arthur and forced to help the Japanese, against his better judgement, in taking the port from the Russians. As a mass evacuation gets under way, Reilly’s plans are put at risk by a soft-spoken detective.

    The Battle of Port Arthur of Monday 8 February – Tuesday 9 February 1904 marked the commencement of the Russo-Japanese War. It began with a surprise night attack by a squadron of Japanese destroyers on the neutral Russian fleet anchored at Port Arthur, Manchuria, and continued with an engagement the following morning; further skirmishing off Port Arthur would continue until May 1904. The attack ended inconclusively, though the war resulted in a decisive Japanese victory.

    The opening stage of the Russo-Japanese War began with pre-emptive strikes by the Imperial Japanese Navy against the Russian Pacific Fleet based at Port Arthur and at Chemulpo. Admiral Tōgō's initial plan was to swoop down upon Port Arthur with the 1st Division of the Combined Fleet, consisting of the six pre-dreadnought battleships Hatsuse, Shikishima, Asahi, Fuji, and Yashima, led by the flagship Mikasa, and the 2nd Division, consisting of the armored cruisers Iwate, Azuma, Izumo, Yakumo, and Tokiwa. These capital ships and cruisers were accompanied by some 15 destroyers and around 20 smaller torpedo boats. In reserve were the cruisers Kasagi, Chitose, Takasago, and Yoshino. With this large, well-trained and well-armed force, and surprise on his side, Admiral Tōgō hoped to deliver a crushing blow to the Russian fleet soon after the severance of diplomatic relations between the Japanese and Russian governments.

    On the Russian side, Admiral Stark had the pre-dreadnought battleships Petropavlovsk, Sevastopol, Peresvet, Pobeda, Poltava, Tsesarevich, and Retvizan, supported by the armored cruiser Bayan and the protected cruisers Pallada, Diana, Askold, Novik, and Boyarin, all based within the protection of the fortified naval base of Port Arthur. However, the defenses of Port Arthur were not as strong as they could have been, as few of the shore artillery batteries were operational, funds for improving the defenses had been diverted to nearby Dalny, and most of the officer corps was celebrating at a party being hosted by Admiral Stark on the night of 9 February 1904.

    Illustration of the destruction of Russian destroyers by Japanese destroyers at Port Arthur

    As Admiral Tōgō had received false information from local spies in and around Port Arthur that the garrisons of the forts guarding the port were on full alert, he was unwilling to risk his precious capital ships to the Russian shore artillery and therefore held back his main battle fleet. Instead, the destroyer force was split into two attack squadrons, one squadron with the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd flotillas to attack Port Arthur, and the other squadron, with the 4th and 5th flotillas, to attack the Russian base at Dalny.

    Night attack of 8–9 February 1904

    At about 22:30 on Monday 8 February 1904, the Port Arthur attack squadron of 10 destroyers encountered patrolling Russian destroyers. The Russians were under orders not to initiate combat, and turned to report the contact to headquarters. However, as a result of the encounter, two Japanese destroyers collided and fell behind and the remainder became scattered. At circa 00:28 on 9 February, the first four Japanese destroyers approached the port of Port Arthur without being observed, and launched a torpedo attack against the Pallada (which was hit amidship, caught fire, and keeled over) and the Retvizan (which was holed in her bow). The other Japanese destroyers were less successful; many of the torpedoes became caught in the extended torpedo nets[3] which effectively prevented most of the torpedoes from striking the vitals of the Russian battleships.[4] Other destroyers had arrived too late to benefit from surprise, and made their attacks individually rather than in a group. However, they were able to disable the most powerful ship of the Russian fleet, the battleship Tsesarevich. The Japanese destroyer Oboro made the last attack, around 02:00, by which time the Russians were fully awake, and their searchlights and gunfire made accurate and close range torpedo attacks impossible.

    A Japanese torpedo boat approaches a Russian torpedo boat. A Japanese sailor attacks with a saber the commander of the enemy ship and then throws him to the sea in a furious impetus (Angelo Agostini, O Malho, 1904).

    Despite ideal conditions for a surprise attack, the results were relatively poor. Of the sixteen torpedoes fired, all but three either missed or failed to explode. But luck was against the Russians insofar as two of the three torpedoes hit their best battleships: the Retvizan and the Tsesarevich were put out of action for weeks, as was the protected cruiser Pallada.

    The Invaders is an American science fiction television program created by Larry Cohen that aired on ABC for two seasons, from January 10, 1967 to March 26, 1968. Dominic Frontiere, who had provided scores for Twelve O'Clock High and The Outer Limits, provided scores for The Invaders as well.

    The series was a Quinn Martin Production (Season One was produced in association with the ABC Television Network - or as it was listed in the end credits, "The American Broadcasting Company Television Network").

    Roy Thinnes stars as architect David Vincent, who accidentally learns of a secret alien invasion already underway and thereafter travels from place to place attempting to foil the aliens' plots and warn a skeptical populace of the danger. As the series progresses Vincent is able to convince a small number of people to help him fight the aliens.

    "The Possessed" William Hale John W. Bloch January 2, 1968

    At the Willard Sanitarium, a place of rest and convalescence, Dr. Martin Willard (Michael Constantine) is working with the aliens and his brother Dr. Ted Willard (Michael Tolan) is also cooperating but is not fully committed. Ted breaks into a laboratory by night to try to get a particular file but is confronted by alien Adam Lane (William Smithers) who overcomes Ted after a struggle. Just as Adam is about to kill Ted with an alien disc weapon, his brother Martin appears and dissuades Adam from doing anything rash. Adam then plants a device in Ted's head, with Martin's agreement, supposedly in the cause of research, but the device is causing Ted to be confused in his memory and actions. Martin is very protective of Ted, who happens to be an old friend of David Vincent's. As Ted recuperates at home after the lab incident he is cared for by Martin who wants to make sure to keep aliens away from Ted.

    He is visited by David Vincent who clearly sees that Ted is a troubled man. Martin has an uneasy relationship with Adam, and Martin is also under pressure from Janet Garner (Katherine Justice) who is Ted's fiancée. Her Father who was funding the research has died unexpectedly, and Martin has denied her access to Ted and to the research lab. Vincent calls Scoville who agrees to send a spy technician to the lab in order to service some equipment. Adam gets suspicious and tries to stop the technician from leaving, but Vincent and Scoville come to his rescue. The technician confirms that there are mind control experiments using earth made equipment going on and that Janet's father's death was caused by a head implant device. With that evidence Vincent persuades Janet to call for a second post mortem examination on her father's body. This puts further pressure on Martin and Adam's relationship. Adam then secretly uses the mind control equipment to order Ted to Kill Janet. David breaks into the lab and overhears Adam issuing the kill order to Ted remotely. Vincent gets to Janet's house just as Ted arrives and knocks Ted out, accidentally dislodging the implanted device. Ted recovers and goes back to the lab with David. After a scuffle with Adam during which Martin is accidentally shot by Ted, Vincent subsequently shoots Adam, who vaporizes. Ted takes over the running of the sanitarium with Janet, and the aliens are given their pink slips.
