The Conspiracy Wiki
Nancy Lieder

The Nancy Lieder conspiracy concerns the channeling of Zetas to predict a Nibiru collision with Earth.


Nancy Lieder[1], who channelled Zetas, [2] began posting on newsgroups in 1995 during the build-up to Comet Hale-Bopp's 1997 perihelion. Lieder claimed that Hale-Bopp was not a true comet, but only "a distant star, and will draw no closer."[3] She further claimed that the mass anticipation of the comet's arrival was an act of misdirection by the establishment to distract the world from seeing "Planet X", which she claimed was en route to collide with Earth.[4] After Hale-Bopp's perihelion revealed it as one of the brightest and longest-observed comets of the last century,[5] Lieder downplayed its impact, claiming that the comet was neither as bright nor as large as had been predicted.[6]

Lieder claimed that Planet X was roughly 4 times the size of the Earth,[7] and that its perigee would occur on May 27, 2003, resulting in the Earth's rotation ceasing for exactly 5.9 terrestrial days.[8] Then the Earth's pole would destabilise in a pole shift (a physical pole shift; i.e. the Earth's pole physically moving, not to be confused with a geomagnetic reversal) caused by magnetic attraction between the Earth's core and the magnetism of the passing planet, resulting in the core's magnetic disruption and subsequent displacement of the Earth's crust.[9]

Lieder's Planet X idea first spread beyond her website in 2001, when Mark Hazlewood, a former member of the ZetaTalk community, took her claims and published them in a book: Blindsided: Planet X Passes in 2003. Lieder would later accuse him of being a confidence trickster.[10] Hazlewood also still maintains that Planet X is due, and published a new book, Delicate Earth, in 2006.[11] Japanese cult the Pana Wave Laboratory, which famously blocked off roads and rivers with white cloths to protect itself from electromagnetic attacks, also warned that the world would end in May 2003 after the approach of a tenth planet.[12]

After the 2003 date passed, Lieder claimed that it was merely a "White Lie ... to fool the establishment,"[13] She claimed that to disclose the true date would enable those in power to plan martial law and attempt to trap people in cities during the shift which would cause their deaths.[14] She still insists that the Zetas tell her that Planet X is coming and that a more specific passage timeline will be forthcoming after Obama takes office.[15][16][17]


Whitley Strieber, author of the alien abduction account, Communion, has said that, while he accepts Lieder's claims of abduction, he believes that her predictions of apocalypse are a symptom of her trauma: "The visitation of these impossible and overwhelming presences creates a catastrophe of mind… (they) overturn our understanding of what the world is and how it works. ... It feels like the world is ending. What it actually means is that the mind, as we once knew it and lived it, is ending."[18]
