Since the early 1950s, UFO fans have flocked to theaters by the millions to be entertained by Hollywood’s portrayal of UFOs and alien beings, mainly green creatures with huge eyes.

More and more evidence reveals that these images of alien monsters are far from the truth, but are part of a world-wide conspiracy to cover-up the real truth about the presence of UFOs.

“A Black Man introduced this reality (reality of UFOs) to the modern world,” said Ilia Muhammad, who wrote, “Five Facts About UFOs that Experts Won’t Tell You.” Ilia Muhammad went on to say the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, patriarch of the Nation of Islam, met the Supreme Being (God in person) who showed him a huge wheel-shaped plane along with its smaller crafts (now labeled UFOs).

“Since the early 1930s, Elijah Muhammad gave vivid firsthand details about these crafts and their purposes in the world directly from the source of these wheels,” he wrote.

Could it be more realistic to believe that those who navigate the Baby Planes and even the Mothership are real men whose commander is offering divine guidance to an otherwise stiff necked, hard-hearted nation that has ignored divine warning after warning and has chosen to resort to business as usual?

Many years ago, Hollywood produced a UFO film dealing with a special message given to the American government by a man from another planet. “The Day the Earth Stood Still” (1951)  is a sci-fi movie created by 20th Century Fox that tells the story of a man named Klaatu who comes to earth in a flying saucer with a profound message to be delivered to all world’s leaders at the same time.

Klaatu’s message is one of peace and his desire was for all nations to find a way to live in harmony or be annihilated.

In Minister Farrakhan’s lecture series titled “The Time and What Must Be Done, Part 58, The Shadow Government, Guidance to President Barack Obama and The Nation, Part 3,” he referenced the film, The Day The Earth Stood Still and the powerful message the movie held.

Minister Farrakhan said, “Maybe God wants you  (President Obama) to use the power of your office to invite to America (and) scientists from all over the world—just as it was in the movie The Day The Earth Stood Still, released the 28th of September, 1951.  In that movie, all the scientists came together; and the man from ‘The Wheel’ said to them he came ‘to offer them good.’ Pay attention to the following words that ‘the man from The Wheel,’ named ‘Klaatu,’ said to the scientists,  ‘We’ve come to visit you in peace—and with good will.’ ” 

“Klaatu concludes his message with the following words,  ‘I am leaving soon, and you will forgive me if I speak bluntly. The universe grows smaller every day, and the threat of aggression by any group, anywhere, can no longer be tolerated. There must be security for all or no one is secure … these Wheels—Their function is to patrol the planets—in spaceships like this one—and preserve the peace….’ ”

Unapologetically, the Minister said during his Shadow Government lecture that America must find a way to live in peace or she will face divine chastisement.  He said, “Join us, the Nation of Islam, and live in peace; or pursue your present course, and face obliteration. We shall be waiting for your answer—The Decision rests with you.  This was a movie, but the writers of this script understood The Reality of what these Wheels represent!” he said.

According to a 2013 UFO report, more than 87 percent of people in North America have seen the presence of UFOs and 76 percent say they have witnessed a UFO.

Other films Hollywood produced with alien-invasion themes include “Independence Day” and “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.”

 Independence Day is a 1996 film starring Will Smith and Vivica A. Fox as a Black couple that struggles to survive an alien invasion. Independence Day’s combined domestic and international box office gross was $816.9 million, which, at the time, was the second-highest worldwide gross of all time. It is currently the 42nd highest-grossing film of all time and was at the forefront of the large-scale disaster and science fiction film.

A more softer alien invasion was “E.T.” (1982), a Steven Speilberg film and a Hollywood blockbuster centered around a young boy (Elliot) who befriends a stranded extra-terrestrial alien and assists him in returning home, while keeping the extra-terrestrial hidden from his mother and the U.S. government. E.T. grossed more than $792.9 million.

Why does Hollywood use time and energy on UFO movies when the world has been told there is no such thing as UFOs? What has yet to be unanswered about the UFO phenomena that Hollywood is still searching for?

For those who seek to separate UFO truth from fantasy, you can find it in Minister Farrakhan’s 58-installment lecture series The Time and What Must Be Done, which serves as an open book on the reality of the UFO-Mothership connection.
