The Godfather Of Conspiracy - John Lear
When aviator John Lear died in 2022, he left behind a colorful legacy filled with wild claims about hostile aliens, secret bases, global conspiracies, and government cabals. Lear was more than familiar with the dark secrets and shady dealings of the Black World. He grew up in that environment. As the son of aviation legend Bill Lear, John piloted just about every aircraft of his day, mingled with high-ranking defense officials and aerospace bigshots, flew secret cargo missions for the CIA, and learned first-hand about excessive secrecy and disinformation. Lear became obsessed with the UFO mystery and in the 1980s, emerged as a harsh critic of what he described as a massive coverup operation. As he grew older, Lear's claims became more grandiose. Some of his allegations were far fetched. However, a few turned out to be true. For both George Knapp and Jeremy Corbell, Lear played a pivotal role in their own interest in UFO matters. In this episode, learn about Lear's colorful life, grandiose claims, and his lasting impact on the subject.
