UFOs, JFK, and Elvis

Conspiracies You Don't Have to Be Crazy to Believe

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


"I'm not asking you to believe every conspiracy theory you'll find in this book. . . . I didn't write this book to give you all the answers. The Warren Commission did that, and the answers were all wrong. I wrote this book to inspire you to do what the powers that be wish you wouldn't:  to question authority . . . and to keep an eye out for Elvis."

In UFOs, JFK, and Elvis, the distinguished statesman of stand-up comedy tackles some of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups this side of Roswell. Just what is it that they don't want you to know about the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Area 51, and what the American astronauts really found on the moon? The unexplained crash at Roswell and the mysterious "face" on Mars? The link between the Nazis and the U.S. space program? Evidence of extraterrestrial experimentation?

Finally, one lone "nut" exposes the conspiracy to keep conspiracies a dirty little secret, standing up to the shadowy forces that would have us believe that Oswald acted alone, those lights in the sky are weather balloons, and fluoridated water is good for you (yeah, right). "Some of the smartest people I know . . . find it easier--and certainly more comforting--to believe that America is the only country on earth with no conspiracies at all." Just remember: do not ask on whom The Belz has told--he's told on them.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 28, 1999 – Television actor Belzer (he played Detective John Munch on Homicide) began his career as a comedian, working in the same dark political vein as Mort Sahl and Dick Gregory. He brings this skeptic's tone to his discussion of the questions raised by popular American conspiracy theories: Who really killed President Kennedy?, Do UFOs exist? and the ilk. Reading, he comes across as a friendly guy with a healthy anti-authority streak. He poses himself as a people's advocate, at one with all the loonies who believe the U.S. government is involved in cover-up upon cover-up. Much of the program is devoted to attacking the facts of the Kennedy assassination. He makes light of all the loose ends and contradictions (to the occasional sound effect of a whizzing bullet). Later, he discusses whether the Apollo space program was a sham, then delves into the even more far-fetched topic of sex with aliens (he calls it "intergalactic buggery"). Here, he finally sheds his high-handed tone and allows himself to become downright giddy in his conjectures. Based on the 1999 Ballantine hardcover.

Customer Reviews

Total crap

This book is full of conjecture and repeated quoting of "sources". It reads like it was written by a wide eyed junior high school kid.
It is a waste of money and time. I want my money and time back.
