I heard that The Invaders was about the fear that communists were gonna take over America. In my opinion, New World Order is another of saying Global Communism.

I am now guessing that those communist trials in 50s America were right - The American government WAS being infultrated by commies.

Exclamation The Nightmare Has Only Just Begun...

I viewed it first as a great sci-fi, a darker version of Star Trek but it took on other meanings second time 'round, after I'd read Icke's work.

Here's the intro:

Great shout decode reality. I, too, was thinking about this earlier in the year and thought I would have a search on the forum before starting a new thread on the topic. Here is a current playlist and background information for anyone that wants to look at or analyse some of the episodes.

43 episodes, including the pilot, and you are absolutely right on everything, not forgetting murdering or removing world leaders they don't control. Maybe we should be looking at some of the less obvious alien plots, in terms of what we are not currently well aware of, to see if we can relate them to anything else.

Yes, and just a few years after Kennedy got assassinated and his not so well known, more so now though, 'Secret Society' speech.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhZk8ronces

I have noticed some 'altruistic Youtubers' who seem to spend their whole lives, literally, telling everyone it was about 'warning us against communism'. Odd that, and one would think Kennedy wouldn't have felt he had to make such an impassioned speech to media folks when issuing a warning about 'communism'.

The difference being that in 'The Invaders' they were still fighting for control; while in 'They Live' (1988) they had already gained control. Given the hard work the murderous freaks must have put in during the intervening 20 years, then it probably isn't too far off the mark.

Before the information age of cyberspace, I always assumed that I had simply missed the last episode where Vincent finally defeated the aliens once and for all. However, unbeknown to me, I had seen the last episode and it was clearly gearing up for a third series. The plot was obviously going to be about the small group of believers securing more allies and really taking the fight to 'The Invaders'. Unfortunately, the show was ultimately cancelled and another series never made. It has been argued that the cancellation of the show was down to falling ratings, but the ratings were still very respectable. Hmm...

There was talk about a movie too a few years back, but nothing concrete has happened yet.

I never thought anything of that, but maybe you are on to something. I always assumed it was because they didn't want the viewers asking 'How the hell does this guy afford to endlessly travel around the country fighting these aliens?'

It takes decades to bring in a system such as communism. Communism just means zero freedom, zero rights, zero tolerance, zero ownership, zero freedom of expression, zero freedom of speech, zero privacy etc. The bankers and secret societies are just a TOOL used by the ptb to help bring in communism. It takes decades to bring in a communist system - First you need to get the sheeple to hate the current system.

Absolutely....weird innit. Funny how the media paints it though innit?

Maybe they should have done the same in England in the 50's then our security services wouldn't have been so badly penetrated by damn Ruskies.

As the saying goes, never fear your fear as Frank Herbert wrote in the novel Dune, here was a mind who knew a little about how the human mind works, so many of the things that are happening today were predicted many decades before they happened, it is a great story and one that is fulfilling its destiny in so many ways today.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGbr2pTborM

Add a little spice of monotomic gold and a lack of fear and humanity can rest in peace, but can never turn the eye, never rest, lest the higher power creep in again.

Cheers for revamping the thread, Illuminuts. Will comment later on.

By the way, I highly recommend you check out the episode The Ivy Curtain. David Vincent discovers that a school is being used by the aliens as a clandestine indoctrination centre. Sounds a bit like my education.

Saw a recent Roddy Piper interview. He said when They Live was first shown, it ended after a one week run at the cinema.

If The Invaders was shown at 6 pm on mainstream television today, it'd strike a chord of recognition with many people today. I'm surprised more researchers haven't referred to it in their work.

Btw, it would be good if this was in General with the trailer in my original post made visible.

Absolutely, which is probably why it won't be repeated again at sensible hours. Like I said, it all clicked with me earlier this year. I really associate the last episode with Kennedy's call to arms, metaphorically, when he gave his speech to all those media people. I think the HAARP episode would knock some people for six nowadays.

When I quoted your original post the disappeared link did show up in my quote, as is often the case when disappeared links in posts are quoted, but when I followed it I found that the Youtube account associated with the video had been terminated. Therefore, in my quote, I just linked to another Youtube video of 'The Invaders' opening titles instead.

You had two identical threads on this topic started 8 months apart, you must have forgotten you started the first one when starting the second one, and they were merged. They were both in 'General', but they obviously didn't get many replies and got pushed off the first page quite quickly. I think one of the original threads only had 3 replies. I asked that the merged thread be moved here, so that it might get more attention from those genuinely interested in the topic. If you really feel strongly about it, then just ask for it to go back to 'General'. No ego involved and no harm done. Peace.

It did have some very nice totty in it did 'The Invaders'. Hopefully, Zhiba won't rush back to spank me for saying it.

Thanks for that, it's definitely helped. Yes I didn't even realise I'd posted two threads.

When I first saw the series it was its entertainment value that had me watching it week after week. The fact that it also contains these profound themes is more than an added bonus.

Oh, Suzanne Pleshette was very easy on the eye for a woman bent upon humanity's destruction.

Someone must have liked her, probably Thinnes, as she got to play a different aliens in one episode in both series. She tried to help Vincent both times.

I digress, but my favourite clip of the entire show is 32.10-33.40 in this episode. It never fails to bring a smile to my face.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKtQn...dmJQNZ&index=4

One other thing, I wonder if the handheld disc weapon, which caused people to suffer a cerebral hemorrhage, was a reference to undiscovered CIA assassinations.

The scariest clip for me was seeing one of the aliens in their original 'form'.

This one is without question my favourite episode, The Ivy Curtain

'A school in Mexico is really a front for an alien indoctrination centre. The head of the school offers a pilot a lot of money to smuggle in its otherworldly students.'
