President Eisenhower commissioned a secret society known as THE JASON SOCIETY (JASON SCHOLARS) to sift through all the facts, evidence, technology, lies and deception and find the truth of the alien question. Initially, the society was made up of 32 of the most prominent men in the country in 1952 and the top 12 members were designated MJ-12
Later on, the terms "Jason Society" and "Jason Scholars" were used to refer to all the people out of the academic and scientific world that work together with or for MJ-12. Typically they work on project Majority and are members of Majestic / Maji.
The Jason Scholars also were the ones that were responsible for the recommendations, known as Alternative 1, Alternative 2 and Alternative 3, for the case that some -possible alien induced- catastrophe might threaten Earth.
