One of the advantages of the blogging is that there are several means of observing who is coming onto your blog. One in particular, Statcounter, is free and pulls up quite a bit of info on who’s coming on, where they are coming from, what they are looking for. Often times, we get people just looking for particular images, such as tiger or dolphin, the co-exist bumper sticker (that’s a popular one) or… girls in prom dresses holding chickens. Yes, we have gotten multiple search hits on the latter. And we deliver, too!
Meanwhile, we occasionally get hits from interesting sources, such as the White House or the Navy or the Department of Defense. Frequently, such hits come after a topical post.
However, what’s really unusual is what happened a few days ago. Someone working for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Ontario spent eight hours on our blog. An entire work shift, 8:30-4:30. They were very interested in the Quebec Encounter posts, downloading everything. We noticed that as soon as they went offline, someone else from Ontario, a city called Timmons, came on and continued pursuing the same posts.
We let Charles know about this investigation–theirs and ours!– and asked him what he thought. It was Charles’ UFO encounter from March 2011 and the aftermath that was the topic of those posts. He believes it was an authorized action, but that the RCMP typically do not investigate UFO reports. He believes an order came from higher up, possibly from a U.S. agency.
“If a Federal worker would be found on a blog without any reason all day long, he would lose his job. That person was given an order to find out everything available about the encounter,” Charles wrote.
“I believe they are looking for us. Not because we are criminals, but because they would like to search our backyard – even though a year has passed. They are aware of our physical problems, the headaches, so they know that we may be been irradiated. They want to find out more.”
Charles also said that he has no interest in discussing the event with the RCMP or any other government agency and face possible public scrutiny. He wants people to know what happened, but he doesn’t want his family exposed to ridicule.
Our sense was to observe the RCMP, but keep quiet. However, Charles asked us to post about it so they would know that we know they are watching in the hopes that they will not pursue the matter. It’s like that funny E*Trade commercial with the baby using hand gestures and saying, “I’m watching you watching him.”
