FBI raids home of owner of Area 51 website

FBI agents raided the home of the owner of a popular UFO website dedicated to exposing Area 51, according to reporter George Knapp.

Knapp tweeted Thursday night that Joerg Arnu, owner of the website Dreamland Resort: Area 51, was raided by the FBI in a “no-knock warrant” at his home in Rachel, Nevada.

“FBI agents came down hard on the operator of a popular website devoted to all things Area 51–its programs, lore, and legacy. More than a dozen agents served a no-knock warrant on the Rachel, NV home of Joerg Arnu, owner of http://dreamlandresort.com…”

Zerohedge.com reports: Knapp said in a second tweet that all “computers, files, phones, photos” were “seized” while another team of FBI agents stormed his other home in Las Vegas. The agents “seized all digital devices and files, held his girlfriend at gunpoint.” 

“The warrants were served one week ago. Arnu noted on his site that he does not know the reason for the raid or whether specific images of the secret base posted online may have initiated such a vigorous action by federal law enforcement,” Knapp continued. 

On Dreamland Resort: Area 51’s website, the first sentence reads: 

Monitoring Area 51 since 1999: Take an inside look at Area 51, a.k.a. Dreamland, the world’s most famous secret Air Base

The mystery remains why a “no-knock warrant” was served at Knapp’s residences with FBI agents’ guns drawn.

We must point out that the raid comes several weeks before the US Air Force unveils its advanced new B-21 Raider stealth bomber on Dec. 2. 

Here’s what people are saying in response to Knapp’s reporting:


    • Maybe. But the real threat is your own local police in concert with DHS and probably other three-letter-agencies.

      At this location, we have “police” dressed in black pajamas, creeping around farms like burglars in the wee, small hours of the night looking for god-only-knows what. We have “police” literally wearing military camo, in million dollar helicopters, running around patrolling rural farms. I have had and witnessed far more fubar encounters with the police than civilian “bad guys”. I don’t need protection from bad guys, I need protection from the gd police. These people don’t recognize the Constitution or Bill of Rights — and the Supreme Court does not either.

      • I remember when they made it legal in TN for cops to install cameras on farms and acreage for surveillance. THey have been spying on rural areas that way.

  1. After JFK and rfk took Marilyn Monroe out to see Area 51, not terribly much layer she said, “the people are totally fooled”.
    And the space patrol and weapinisation agenda needs dumb arses to believe in Martians and abnunakis and all that clap trap. That’s what thrute going to use to totally unify the people under one Central Communist Covenant Government. Either Astana or Jerusalem depending if they decide to kerp pretending Theure Christians and Jews and Moslems or whether they just dump all that and admit they’re atheists materialist who would rather pretend to be pagans worshipping wood.

  2. J. Edgar Hoover, one of the conspirators in the President Kennedy Assassination and FBI Director for 47 years, until poisoned to death in his house in 1972 from eating poisoned food from in his refrigerator (who done it?), would be proud of this arrest.

  3. I hope he was smart enough to have backups of everything in a different location. That’s what I’d do.
