Stephen Bassett is the Executive Director of the Paradigm Research Group which is an Exo-politics organization ďDedicated to ending the government imposed truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race." He also founded X-PAC, a UFO lobbying group. He was involved in Steven Greerís Disclosure Project and helped orchestrate the 2001 National Press Club meeting where a number of witnesses promised to testify before Congress should hearings be held. Bassett has a ďIím mad as hellĒ kind of attitude and frequently assails Washington with projects such as Ďa million faxes!í demanding UFO Disclosure and "the end to the truth embargo." He assumes that ETs are here. He assumes we have back engineered power systems and UFOs from the Roswell crash, and he assumes this has all been withheld. These are a priori truths with Bassett. No proof is necessary.
Bassett has developed the idea that Disclosure is something that insiders want to do, but that it depends upon who is President before that can happen. He says the Cold War precluded Disclosure and since the Cold War it has depended on the correct President. Bush 1 would have worked, but he didnít get re-elected. Drats, delayed again! Clinton would not work, and neither would Bush 2. At the 2009 ďX-ConferenceĒ Bassett gave President Obama an ultimatum that ďHe better disclose by May 31, 2009 or else another country probably will before then.Ē Apparently he had high hopes for Obama, the perfect president to invoke Disclosure, who just hasnít come through for him either. It must be a great disappointment.
His book outlining his strategy is UFO's and U.S. Presidents: The Secret History. 2009. ISBN: 978-1590202722. This is very much a cargo Cult-like mentality. The salvation of mankind is going to happen any day now. It's imminent and will come on the form of Disclosure of the ET presence. So while Christians are waiting for Jesus; Bassett is waiting for the government.
Nobody really knows where Bassett came from. He says he spent fifteen years in ďbusiness developmentĒ and has a degree in physics before he concentrated on Disclosure. Thatís the sum total of the background we have prior to 1996. There are a great many years missing from his resume.
Bassett wants so much to bring the issue of ET Disclosure in front of the public that he appears willing to do anything at all to further his cause. At an appearance on The Paracast he was asked by David & Gene why he gave credence to known charlatans. He stated that it didnít matter if the people who took the stage were credible or not. All that mattered was to get the idea before the public. He said,
ďThe problem is not about our opinions about who is a laughingstock. Itís all about the government. Donít worry about the individual aspects of people in the field. I donít care about your background. Credibility is not an issue in the Disclosure process. I just donít care. Itís not my concern and Iím not in a position to sort it out. I donít give a damn."
He then became extremely upset and literally blew a fuse. His voice went up an octave and he became totally incoherent. Listen to Bassett split a gut on The Paracast here. It's especially telling from 1hr:15min on to the end. He also appeared on the show on April 6, 2008 and September 9th, 2007.
