BOOK REVIEW: Bloodline of the Gods by Nick Redfern (New Page Books) 2015

With fellow Red Dirt Report writer Sarah Hussain behind the wheel, as we headed to an assignment in faraway Alva, Oklahoma, I sat in the passenger seat plowing through Nick Redfern’s newest book, Bloodline of the Gods, and subtitled “Unravel the Mystery of the Human Blood Type to Reveal the Aliens Among Us.”

Redfern, a prolific writer who refuses to shy away from any controversial issue or paranormal enigma, kept me absolutely captivated, page after page, as the autumnal Oklahoma countryside rolled by. By the time we got back to Oklahoma City, later in the afternoon, I had completed the book, my mind racing. What if this is true?

And Redfern warns readers that the information on those pages is “controversial in the extreme” and that his story “requires us to accept the possibility that the history of the human race is woefully incomplete, incorrect, and lacking in key, critical data.” Anyone who has watched the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens program will know where I’m going with this.

Is humanity, as Redfern suggests, part of a planet-wide lab experiment where at least 10 percent of us are actual descendants of an ancient and advanced alien civilization – the Anunnaki – due to having Rh negative blood. What that means is that while most of us are Rh positive (where our blood cells contain a specific antigen). In fact, Redfern tells us that in the U.S., approximately 85 percent of Caucasians, 90 percent of African-Americans and approximately 98 percent of Asian-Americans are Rh positive.

But that minority of Rh negatives, which includes many well-known world leaders, past and present, are not like us. They are different. Just as the Basque people of northern Spain are different. They are different in many ways, and the bloodlines matter, Redfern tells us in his easy-to-read manner.

Redfern, an Englishman based in Texas, takes us on a wild, historical journey. From many thousands of years ago, when Cro-Magnon man and the Neanderthals were trying to survive (something – or someone – killed off the Neanderthals), a race of aliens, living on the planet Nibiru (which is in our solar system, but on an unusual orbit), came here over 400,000 years ago seeking gold to be used to repair the thinning ozone layer on their own planet.

We learn about Enki and Enlil, the Anunnaki sons of Anu, who are in charge of the gold mining operations, largely in Africa, and eventually lead to the creation of what became human beings, although not without significant controversy amongst Anunnaki leaders.

Sound too bizarre to be true? Yes, I know. I thought the same thing when I was first introduced to these ideas via the works of Zecharia Sitchin and guests on late night Coast to Coast AM. And later, in my previous book reviews – Our Occulted History by Jim Marrs and Slave Species of the Gods and African Temples of the Anunnaki, both by Michael Tellinger – I began to realize that these ideas hold water and are very likely valid. What of the “Great Deluge”? What of the ancient mining operation sites that can’t be explained in South Africa?

And then there’s us. Did Anunnaki biological engineers tinker with the all-ready existing Homo erectus to ultimately create a slave species to mine the gold?

From here, Redfern’s book takes us through the ancient stories of the distant past, like The Epic of Gilgamesh. How the Biblical tale of Noah may actually be about Utnapishtim, who was warned of the impending doom as Nibiru passed Earth’s orbit – creating a planetary cataclysm – and made an “ark” to save genetic material of Earth creatures so that when the catastrophe ended, life could begin anew.

Was this when the Anunnaki split for Nibiru, leaving a few “watchers” behind? And are they behind the flying saucer and alien abduction phenomenon that began in the early 1960’s with Betty and Barney Hill and has continued to the present day? Are the “Grays” (likely biological robots – drones), like the ones written about in Whitley Strieber’s chilling 1987 book Communion, doing the dirty work of abducting humans with Rh negative blood, in hopes of keeping remnants of their race going forward?

These Rh negative people are known to be psychic and very intelligent, with slightly larger brains – like Cro-Magnons – and includes note only President John F. Kennedy but his alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and Oswald’s Russian wife Marina. Other “negatives” include Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. And we can’t foget members of the British Royal family. One can agree that there is something different about these people. Some argue there is even a “reptilian” angle to this phenomena, as popularized by UK researcher David Icke.

And the U.S. military, Redfern writes, appears to be monitoring Rh negative people. Those with that blood characteristic have told of strange people and black helicopters seemingly monitoring their every move. UFOs seem to show up when they're least expected. It can be unsettling and even terrifying, although some victims and researchers see these encounters in a positive light.

So, one has to ask: Where is this all going? Will Rh negatives be outed? Will they be vilified as being different and somehow dangerous? And are we heading towards some soulless, transhumanist future as Oz-like aliens work behind the proverbial curtain?

Once again, Nick Redfern pushes the envelope on what our actual history may involve and that what we have been taught to believe is just a cover story. After all, isn't reality usually stranger than fiction?
