OK HERE WE GO TIME TRAVEL FACT OR FICTION;
'TIME-TRAVELER' BUSTED FOR INSIDER TRADING
Wednesday March 19, 2003
By CHAD KULTGEN
NEW YORK -- Federal investigators have arrested an enigmatic Wall Street wiz on
insider-trading charges -- and incredibly, he claims to be a time-traveler from the year
Sources at the Security and Exchange Commission confirm that 44-year-old Andrew Carlssin
offered the bizarre explanation for his uncanny success in the stock market after being
led off in handcuffs on January 28.
"We don't believe this guy's story -- he's either a lunatic or a pathological
liar," says an SEC insider.
"But the fact is, with an initial investment of only $800, in two weeks' time he had
a portfolio valued at over $350 million. Every trade he made capitalized on unexpected
business developments, which simply can't be pure luck.
"The only way he could pull it off is with illegal inside information. He's going to
sit in a jail cell on Rikers Island until he agrees to give up his sources."
The past year of nose-diving stock prices has left most investors crying in their beer. So
when Carlssin made a flurry of 126 high-risk trades and came out the winner every time, it
raised the eyebrows of Wall Street watchdogs.
"If a company's stock rose due to a merger or technological breakthrough that was
supposed to be secret, Mr. Carlssin somehow knew about it in advance," says the SEC
source close to the hush-hush, ongoing investigation.
When investigators hauled Carlssin in for questioning, they got more than they bargained
for: A mind-boggling four-hour confession.
Carlssin declared that he had traveled back in time from over 200 years in the future,
when it is common knowledge that our era experienced one of the worst stock plunges in
history. Yet anyone armed with knowledge of the handful of stocks destined to go through
the roof could make a fortune.
"It was just too tempting to resist," Carlssin allegedly said in his videotaped
confession. "I had planned to make it look natural, you know, lose a little here and
there so it doesn't look too perfect. But I just got caught in the moment."
In a bid for leniency, Carlssin has reportedly offered to divulge "historical
facts" such as the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden and a cure for AIDS.
All he wants is to be allowed to return to the future in his "time craft."
However, he refuses to reveal the location of the machine or discuss how it works,
supposedly out of fear the technology could "fall into the wrong hands."
Officials are quite confident the "time-traveler's" claims are bogus. Yet the
SEC source admits, "No one can find any record of any Andrew Carlssin existing
anywhere before December 2002."

For Immediate Release:
Philadelphia Experiment Survivor A Fake
by Bob Florida
Al Bielek has made a living over the last 10 plus years by selling books and claiming to
to be a survivor of the mythical Philadelphia Experiment, the legend of a top secret WWII
test in early stealth technology for destroyers. The legend has it that the U.S.S.
Eldridge was used for the test and at some point during the experiment it went completely
invisible and teleported from the Philadelphia coast to Norfolk, Virginia and the back
again. Bielek's version of events is even more elaborate - he and his half brother, Duncan
Cameron, jumped overboard as things started going heywire on deck and they landed in 1983,
20 years into the future and on dry land at the Montauk Air Force Base in Montauk, Long
Island. What follows is an extensive bit of sci-fi sounding adventures that include nearly
everything from time travel to mind control and despite being too fantastic to believe,
Bielek has plenty of believers around the world. That may change now, and Bielek may well
other vocation, and not because anyone can prove his time travel claims wrong. Instead,
his tall tale house of cards is coming down because it's now come to light that he stole
the identity that he claims he had when all his adventures began.
An unlikely trio of X-File sleuths from three different countries joined forces due to
their shared interest in the WWII legend and they each at some point became too skeptical
of Bielek's claims. For German Gerold Schelm it was the same as for your typical detective
- too many wild and baseless claims from Bielek despite some known and traceable facts.
For Canadian Fred Houpt it took longer for his suspicions to cause him to take action, but
after a while too many descrepencies began to appear in Bielek's tale, like so many holes
in Swiss cheese, until Houpt knew there was something very wrong. For American Marshall
Barnes, the most active of the three and a leading expert on the Philadelphia Experiment,
it was after he had compiled fact after fact that supported the idea that something like
the Philadelphia Experiment had indeed taken place but he never found a shred of evidence
to support Bielek's version.
Finally the three, with the help of additional friends and coconspirators, began their own
investigation focusing on Bielek himself, analyzing every aspect of every version of his
story. Tracking down names, dates, places, military facts. Whether it was conferring with
an expert on ship interior's who was able to establish that a photo that Bielek claimed
was taken inside the Eldridge was actually from inside a much bigger ship, to discovering
that many of the scientists that Bielek claimed were involved with the secret test were
either dead before the test was ever conducted or were really characters from a science
The most damning evidence against Bielek's account, however came with the discovery by
Barnes that Bielek had stolen the identity of a millionaire yarn manufacturer who had
attended Princeton back in the 1930s. Alex Cameron III was from Pennsylvania and appeared
in a Princeton 1936 year book as "A. Cameron". That same photo was placed by
Bielek on his web site where Bielek claims that it's a photo of Edward A. Cameron, the son
of Alexander Duncan Cameron and half brother of Duncan Cameron. Through a series of
adventures, Bielek claims that Edward Cameron was age regressed by intelligence agency
scientists and then sent back in time to 1927 and placed as a young child in the Bielek
family where he was raised and grew-up as Al Bielek. He regained his memories after
watching a sci-fi movie about the Philadlephia Experiment on TV.
The photo of A. Cameron was the first piece of hard evidence that Bielek had ever produced
to support his identity as Edward Cameron. Being that the source of the picture was known,
Barnes went to Princeton and visited the archives there to verify the photo. There he made
the shocking discovery that it wasn't of an Edward "A." Cameron but that the
"A." stood for Alex and he was from Reading, Pennsylvania not anywhere near Lond
Island. Not only that, but Barnes was able to obtain a phone number and address for the
man. After calling it he discovered that Cameron had died 2 years before but was able to
get the phone number of his surviving son.
Meanwhile, Schelm and Houpt were busy double checking the identity of "A.
Cameron" as well and were able to get a confirmation in writing of his true identity
as well as some background history on the man. He had made a good living in the yarn
business and also had a daughter. Schelm got a photo of the man and his wife in their
later years, sitting comfortably in a convertible automobile, proving that he had not been
aged regressed and sent back in time and was now running around as Al Bielek spouting
conspiracy theories about time travel, UFOs, aliens and the secret government.
Barnes prepared a secret email account for Cameron's son and when he was able to talk to
him, he got permission to tape the conversation. In it, Alex IV told the true story of his
father and admitted to not having any idea of who Al Bielek or any of the other colorful
characters are that are associated with Bielek's tale of the Cameron brothers. Then Barnes
had Alex IV open the secret email account and listened as he identified the photos of his
father, confirming that in fact he was A. Cameron's son.
Then Barnes guided Alex IV to Bielek's web site at http://www.bielek.com
and had him click on the bar for Al Bielek and then where it said "Ed
Cameron". When the page came up describing Ed Cameron's life Alex let out a "Oh
my God. That's my dad!" There at near the top of the page was his father's 1936
Princeton year book photo. Then when asked by Barnes to identify the photos of Alexander
Duncan Cameron, who should be his grandfather by Bielek's account, Alex IV couldn't.
"My grafather was never in the navy". This confirmed suspicions that Barnes had
been having since discovering the true identity of A. Cameron. Bielek had taken two
different Cameron families and put them together, with him claiming to be A. Cameron so
that he could then be a part of the other Cameron family if only by name.
This twisted scenario was confirmed later by Schelm's contact with an H. Van Pelt and a
member of Barnes' American team's contact with an M. Long. Both are related to Alexander
Duncan Cameron and both deny any knowledge of the man in the A. Cameron photo. In
particular, from M. Long's account it seems that the stories about Edward and Duncan
Cameron's youth are based on the true life of Alexander Duncan Cameron. They were probably
told to Bielek by one of his sons who is also named Duncan Cameron. This Duncan is a
friend of Bielek and used to claim that he was the half brother who jumped overboard with
Ed Cameron and traveled through time. He claimed that his spirit was placed in his current
body when his previous one began to breakdown due to adverse effects from his time travel
experiences. Both he and Bielek would later join Preston Nichols as part of the secret
government's Montauk Project program at the abandoned Air Force Base at Montauk, Long
Island and eventually be b
rain washed to forget after the project was shut down. Of course since the one man that
Bielek claims was Edward Cameron wasn't, that means there was no Ed Cameron, thus causing
a chain of deletions that cancel out not only Bielek's version of the Philadelphia
Experiment but blow a king size hole in Nichols' claims of the Montauk Project as well,
since Nichols is on record saying that Bielek's tale connecting the two projects together
is true. A cottage publishing industry has been based on these stories for Sky Books, a
small press house run by one Vincent Barbarick who uses the name of Peter Moon to publish
under. There is no telling whether these revelations will help or hurt future book sales.
"I think poor Al has smoked one too many," commented Alex IV about Bielek's
story. The son of the man who Bielek claimed to be said that he wasn't going to sue Bielek
because the "story isn't true" and "it's just too crazy to believe",
but he did give Barnes and his investigators the right to use the taped conversation and
photos of his father to set the record straight.
Meanwhile, Barnes says this does nothing to harm his further invesigation of the WWII
legend. "Really," he said, speaking on vacation in Southwestern, Ohio,
"this is pretty good. It clears the decks of this crazy story and realigns the focus
on the hard evidence that has been suppressed repeatedly but documents a real basis for
trying to make a destroyer escort invisible to sight and radar during WWII. We've
discovered so much more that we haven't even had a chance to organize it all, but we will
fairly soon. When we do, we'll have a clear and verifiable line of evidence showing much
of the who, why, when and where of the true events and also the efforts to misappropriate
the legend, like what Bielek did, and the efforts to cover it up. After that, I don't
think I'll ever want to deal with it again."
