Statement For Publication

Subject: Statement For Publication
X-Mailer: AOL 4.0 for Windows 95 sub 13

So RAMS how long are you going to ..leave this open to wild speculation?

Look at it from the perspective of a sequence of scenarios and events. Art Bell has long been accused of being a Mason. Whatever that is. He has been accused of being many things. This in the public eye.

Richard Hoagland speaks about coverups which involve NASA and beyond. Secret societies? Hidden organizations? The Majestic 12? Where is Stanton these days?

Richard Hoagland becomes A WIDELY controversial and favorite guest in the radio community. Continuing to speak out with regards to NASA, he is met with much opposition and attacks on his person and his Angstrom Award is questioned as well as his past and current affiliations and credentials. Subjected to such scrutiny, he forges ahead presenting clues , providing the public with enough information to either speak up or investigate. A valuable commodity.

Understanding that members of the NASA organization may perhaps at the very least be concerned about this heresy, disclosure, trail of clues and exposure to these things, one can safely assume Richard Hoagland must have been controversial even within the NASA infrastructure.

Then along comes Robert A. M. Stephens. From the beginning, was he presenting himself as in some kind of opposition towards Richard Hoagland? This was the first I had ever heard of him on the airwaves.

Suddenly Mr. Stephens is given opportunity to present Mr. Hoagland with a series of 200 questions on the Art Bell program. In my opinion, if this was to be "hush hush" on the part of Bell and Hoagland I would have to question why Robert Stephens would be even given the opportunity for this debate in the first place, considering the fact that Art Bell and Richard Hoagland are known friends. Art Bell did not anticipate Robert Stephens attacking Richards personal character in such a heated and instantanious way, without provocation.

Being an objective entertainer and fair mediator, Bell agreed to permit Stephens this time. It was to be an open debate regarding the 200 questions, and Richard Hoagland appeared in good faith that is was to be an honest, mature debate between grown men. Instead within the first few minutes Robert Stephens claimed Richard Hoagland was a pathological liar thereby ending the "debate".

It appears as though Robert Stephens was not sincerely seeking answers. He was seeking an audience to discredit Richard Hoagland from the beginning. Why? Stay with me here.

Enter, David Oates. He Was to be my husband, before I ended the relationship on the grounds that I did not feel comfortable with his "world views". David and I remained friends and continued to casually maintain conversations.

David expressed to me in a conversation that Robert Stephens was "hired by NASA, to take down Bell and Hoagland. There is information that NASA wants to release to the public, but cannot until Bell and Hoagland are out of the way. NASA contacted me (David) also, and I have been in on this, from the beginning. I am behind the Behold scenario, and Robert has said that I can do whatever I want, that he will take the heat for me." So, the web site "Behold" was erected wherein every attempt to discredit, defame and humiliate Art Bell was presented.

Upon this horrible thing taking place, I myself decided to expose the horrific conspiracy and to tell the world what was really "going on behind the Behold scenes". I was not about to sit by and watch these people destroy an innocent man. I erected a web site myself that showed the recorded conversations between David Oates and myself wherein he and Stephens are conspiring with eachother and as David claimed to me, a serious attempt to destroy the "threat of Art Bell and get him off the airwaves", so that NASA can go ahead and release this information about UFO's to the public.

Stephens maintains throughout this whole debacle, that "there are things...unbelievable things, that I am aware of that will affect all of humanity. Behold."

This "person" (RAMS) is granted inside knowledge of something far greater than our wildest imaginings. Yet we as a people have not been permitted the same courtesy of knowing what we all have a right to know. But Robert A. M. Stephens somehow has a "right" to keep it from us, until we are "all grown up enough to take it", in his estimation. But as Stephens has implied and so much as said over the internet "I have decided the world is not yet ready".

Richard may be starting to fit pieces of a puzzle together for us. I suggest we all pay attention to this man instead of the inane rantings of a sociopathic, conspiratorialist preditor. Mr. Hoagland's web site is continuously updated and can be found at

Perhaps there is some truth to this conspiracy being "bigger than we can imagine". But we as a people would have a serious right to know. And NASA does not have to "destroy a radio entertainer" in order to achieve this goal. The underlying tone of all the events of this past while, have the distinct flavor of a sinister plot. Some feel NASA is behind this. David Oates told me they were. And I have since been Stephens and Oates "Achilles Heel".

We are watching and counting on you Richard.

From Oates X-Fiancee

Subject: From Oates X-Fiancee
X-Mailer: AOL 4.0 for Windows 95 sub 13

David told me he DID kill a man, but he was trying to defend himself when that happened. I don't know whether he was lying or not, or why he would, to me. I was his fiancee at the time, so I felt he was confiding things in me, that he may have not confided in others. But my suspicion is, there may be others out there who David told this too, knowing David.

But I also understand he did not want this out.

The ambush where four men were dead according to David, happened at his home when he heard there was a contract put on his life. They got the kids out of the house, sat there in the dark and waited. The ambush happened, shots fired, and four men were dead from that incident.

As I said, I don't know why David would make this stuff up to me, but I do understand why a man in the public eye would not want these sordid details to go public.

This for me, also shows my concern for David's associations, and the possibility where I was concerned, that there was potential for a serious threat to Art. Being as David was consumed with Art and seeking revenge on him. I have never seen a scarier pack of individuals in my life. By that, I mean those that surround David.

I ask that pigdog correct this story. I never said he murdered. I said -- he SAID he killed a man.


The actual motion for a restraining order filed by David Oates claimed that you accused him of murder. I changed the Pigdog story about the case to make it more clear that he claimed this, and not us.

Do you guys realise Pigdog translates as Schweinhund in German? You know, the insulat all those fake nazis use in those bad WW2 movies?

Anyway... I was gonna write something about your website... I guess it -is- your website (but who the hell am I calling 'you' here?)

Anyway, back to your website, webpages, www section, whatever. It as kind of cool, even though you seem to have something against the Dutch or something

I love living in Holland... just gotten back from a party, smoked about umpteen joints, drank a lot of beer and stuff...

Did I mention your website is kind of cool? What's the story with your website anyway? I don't get it.

That article about the sqrats is kind of cool though.

Oh yeah: thanks for the link to my website, the Wesley Crusher-gets-beaten-up-by-Mr T-cartoon I mean, you got me like 250+ hits so far

Cool :)

Now I have to figure out a way to remember to visit your site more often, I guess... I lose URLS way to soon.

Hey did you know that around 4 am there is NOTHING on TV here? Stupid, eh? I mean, back when I was visiting in the 'States, there was always something on, but not here.

I get like 35 channels, but there is nothing except music television and CNN and those stupid shows where they try to sell you stuff. I hate my VCR for breaking down

Oh yeah, drinking 40+ coffee in one day is a bad idea

Art Bell an his recless release of propaganda dealing with Hale-Bop comet were the primary contribiting factors in the Heavens Gate suicide. Ask NASA about his inqiuries if you have a question and why he was denied acess to their data,

Sounds pretty fucking dubious to me. Take a look at: Skeptics Pelt Art Bell With Rocks and Garbage.

Orbital review

From: Joab Jackson <>
Subject: Orbital review

Hey did I ever tell you I saw Orbital back in like 93 or 94? It was in some warehouse in D.C. -they were part of a package tour, a kind of "Monsters of Techno" thing with Aphex Twin, Moby and some other acts I've forgotten. It was like 4 a.m. and they turned off all the lights and so it was pitch black and they were surrounded by all these synths and stuff and each guy had only a wearable headset with penlight-sized flashflight beams coming out each side, like some coal miner's hat or something. So the whole set you could only see these monster-like eyes menacingly darting about the stage as they played and adjusted their synths. Never did see what they actually looked like. I don't know why, but it seemed like a really cool thing to do. That Moby reminded me of Billy Idol, but I thought Orbital ruled after that. The Orbital review reminded me of that.

You guys should check out D.J. Shadow by the way. "Entroducing" is his best. Great stuff. Even my techno-loathing friends liked that album.

After reading your review of Orbital's new album, I noticed that you found the second disk in with the "In Sides" album...

Well, a bit of trivia not everyone knows about, but the "In Sides" album came in two flavors, with not one, but (count em) *two* different versions of the "sup3r s3cr3t" second disk. I might be able to dig it up on mp3 if you were interested. Anyway, nice article, keep up the crazy badness (or was it bad craziness?).

This be one cool website!. Many hours spent perusing craziness. However, Pork theme gets lost in the XMIT. I wish I was talented enough to contribute as a PigDog reporter. Chalk it up to having a BAAS from the University of Delaware. Nothing happens here that is newsworthy. Unless it involves the banking industry, which has taken over the entire state, since DuPont fired all of us, me included. Might be grist for the mill vis a vis the Illuminati, Freemasons, and Bilderbergers, all of which have a big following here. I was rejected from Freemasonry because I signed an "Impeach Nixon" form at a "Crisis of Confidence" seminar held at the University of Delaware (an unfounded claim to being a real university by normal standards). My old man arranged a bogus house break-in to claim my Grandfather's Masonic ring, which I was destined to inherit. As a 33rd degree Mason, my old man is a huge prick, just because I used to smoke dope. If any of this is in interest to PigDog, lemme know.

Dear Pigdog,

Well you know you are good so I will spare you the flattery and appropriate congradulations on the charming magazine you have. I am actually writing to ask a favor. I recently started reading Hunter S. Thompson's book and have since devoured everything he has written. I am looking for a way to get in touch with him and since you claim to be a gonzo news-magazine and you carry a picture of him on your page I thought perhaps you might have an e-mail, or a link to his own webpage. Anyway I would appreciate any help you can give.

Re: Jackboots in the face

From: "Richard Tater" <>
Subject: Re: Jackboots in the face.
Date: Fri, 30 Apr 1999 22:38:14 PDT

Dear Pigdog

I just found your site and scanned through it. I came across the "Another Jackboot in the Face" article and I can't say that I'm surprised. After twelve years of the Regan/Bush assrape and Clinton's similar cop-lovin' ways, it seems that my age group (25-35) will step in line to just about any further restrictions on their liberties without the slightest questioning. "Schtep inside. You vill only be deloused!" Even though the hippy generation eventually sold out, at least they had the youthful foresight to bitch and protest a bit before sliding into the same delusions of comfort, security, and conformity of the 1950's, post-war, American dream.

Speaking as an ex-drunken driver of the highest level (I drive a flatbed for a living, so I don't participate in that sport any longer), I can at least breath a sigh of relief that this latest legal fuckaround won't effect me at the personal level of facing even stiffer fines and penalties if caught in the act. The few times I've been pulled over and tested I blew under the .08 limit and was sent on my merry way. If this latest lowering of limit gets passed in Seattle, and considering the fink mentality of the nation-state it probably will, it may just set yet another president to the Zero-tolerance mentality that continues to sweep the Union.

The whole legal limit idea is too much of a generality. People are all different when it comes to intoxication and their ability to handle it. I come from a long line of professional drunks and drunken drivers. I have a much higher tolerance to booze and its effects as a result. I had an idea a little while back that they should have a standardized testing for intoxicated driving. Every person should take the regular driving test and then a drunk driving test. You keep running the course and drinking till you fuck up. Then you're alcohol percentile rated. Some folks will line up to the legal limit, others will score higher, and many wilted specimens of humanity, who probably shouldn't be driving at all, will score lower.

So, the next time some needle-dicked power-tripper pulls you over for a random hassle, smells some booze, has you blow into the happy-fun-tube, and you pop a .12, he has to let you go because you're rated to .18. Now that's a rational solution I can get behind. But, since we're living in a sterile world or humorless, robot politicians and media numbed, pod-people constituencies, reasonable solutions seldom count any longer.

Real Fucking Sincerely
Richard Tater
