• The Pentagon’s recent admission of having a program that studies UFOs, not to mention a cockpit video of a Navy jet chasing a UFO, has created a lot of buzz in the media. But prior to this blockbuster revelation, there have been millions of documents released via governments, military, and intelligence agencies that clearly document the fact that these things are tracked on radar, and that military pilots are often scrambled to take a closer look. When our pilots come too close to these craft and they perform evasive maneuvers or shut down the pilots’ critical instrumentation and electronic equipment, it’s clear we are looking at an intelligently controlled and highly sophisticated piece of technology.

• Hundreds of academics and scientists have published articles in peer-reviewed journals, and given lectures around the world regarding the scientific data and evidence that’s already been obtained from the UFO phenomenon.

• The recently retired director of the Pentagon UFO program, Louis Elizondo, confirmed on CNN that there is a great deal of evidence suggesting we are currently being visited, and have been visited, by intelligent extraterrestrials. Even the pilot of the UFO video released by the Pentagon stated his belief that this particular object was “not from this world.”

• When you have several hundred individuals who’ve held high ranking positions within the military, the academic community, and within intelligence agencies as well as private military contractors like Lockheed Martin, telling us that some of these UFOs are indeed extraterrestrial in origin and are much more technologically advanced than our own, it’s not something to ignore.

• But when celebrity astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson was asked about intelligent extraterrestrials visiting Earth in a CNN interview (see 5:27 video below), Tyson responded, “The evidence is so paltry for aliens to visit Earth, I have no further interest. .   It seems to me, aliens who visited us . . . would manifest more convincingly than fuzzy video, and there’s no reason to assume that because you don’t know what you’re looking it equals aliens that visited us from outer space.”

• Tyson may be correct that we don’t know what the UFO is for certain, but that doesn’t mean we should therefore ignore the phenomenon. The fact that Tyson doesn’t even acknowledge the operating characteristics of this craft (in the cockpit video) goes to show that he doesn’t really recognize the significance and implications of such sightings. Tyson says that, from a scientific standpoint, none of this constitutes evidence at all.

• Tyson clearly hasn’t done his research or examined the evidence. The fact that Neil deGrasse Tyson has been popularized, given so much credibility and a mainstream media platform, is dangerous.

[Editor’s note] Is Neil deGrasse Tyson simply a paid shill for the media cabal’s disinformation campaign? Is he trying to preserve his head-in-the-sand point-of-view because this is what his top-selling books say and he wants to stay relevant? Or is he just happily ignorant due to his intentional refusal to actually look at the plethora of UFO evidence out there? When the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon is finally revealed to be true, will Tyson publicly admit what a close-minded fool he really is and go away?

 

“People I think have conflated the concept of a UFO with whether we’re [being] visited by aliens. UFO means unidentified flying object, this is a highly non-specific term, it is so non-specific it admits you don’t know what you’re looking at. . . . The universe brims with mysteries, just because you don’t know what it is you’re looking at, doesn’t mean it’s intelligent aliens from another planet.”

When asked about his skepticism about intelligent extraterrestrials visiting Earth, Tyson responded, “The evidence is so paltry for aliens to visit Earth, I have no further interest. . . . It seems to me, aliens who visited us . . . would manifest more convincingly than fuzzy video, and there’s no reason to assume that because you don’t know what you’re looking it equals aliens that visited us from outer space.”

The Pentagon’s recent admission of having a program that studies UFOs has created a lot of buzz in the media. It’s official disclosure, but there have been millions of documents released via governments, military, and intelligence agencies that clearly document the fact that these things show up in our atmosphere all the time, that they are tracked on radar, and that military pilots are often scrambled to take a closer look.

The Pentagon claims the program was shut down, but the recently retired director of the program, Louis Elizondo, says otherwise. He also recently appeared on CNN stating that there is a great deal of evidence suggesting we are currently being visited, and have been visited, by intelligent extraterrestrials. Even the pilot of the UFO video released by the Pentagon stated his belief that this particular object was “not from this world.”

What Neil Is Not Acknowledging

First off, Neil is not recognizing that this is a common occurrence, and has been for decades. He is not recognizing that it’s quite clear we are looking at an intelligently controlled and highly sophisticated piece of technology.

Encounters with UFOs have been tracked on radar as well as visually confirmed thousands of times, and this is just one example of multiple encounters, many of which are far more extraordinary than this one.

That being said, this one was quite extraordinary. We are talking about objects travelling at tremendous speeds and performing maneuvers that no known aircraft can perform, some of which even defy our current understanding of physics.

One of the pilots of this particular encounter, David Fravor, describes his experience as follows: “As I got close to it, probably within a mile to half a mile, it rapidly accelerated to the south and and disappeared in less than two seconds. . . . It had no wings . . . there’s no rotors. . . . This was extremely abrupt. Like a ping pong ball bouncing off the wall, it would hit and go the other way and change directions at will. And then the ability to hover over the water and then start a vertical climb from basically zero up towards about 12,000 feet, and then accelerate in less than two seconds and disappear — it is something I had never seen in my life.”

Neil may be right about the fact that we don’t know what it is, but that doesn’t mean we should therefore ignore the phenomenon. He also fails to provide any alternative explanations. He doesn’t even speculate on the matter, which is weird because we’re talking about, again, an object performing never-before-seen maneuvers, displaying extremely technologically advanced capabilities.

It may not be ET, but if not, where is it from? From what we’ve been told, the military doesn’t even have access to this type of technology. If it did come from the military, how would the military pilots and their superiors not know about a craft in their vicinity, given the fact that they are themselves representatives of the military?

Is the craft manmade, perhaps from a rogue aerospace program that not even the U.S. military knows about? Who knows. But the fact that Tyson didn’t even acknowledge the operating characteristics of this craft goes to show that he doesn’t really recognize the significance and implications of such sightings.

Another interesting fact is that it is only when our pilots come too close to these craft that they perform evasive maneuvers or shut down the pilots’ critical instrumentation and electronic equipment.

“The Evidence Is So Paltry”

“Intelligent beings from other star systems have been and are visiting our planet Earth. They are variously referred to as Visitors, Others, Star People, ETs, etc. . . . They are visiting Earth NOW; this is not a matter of conjecture or wistful thinking.” – Theodor C. Loder III, Phd, Professor Emeritus of Earth Sciences, University of New Hampshire.

Prior to the official disclosure of UFOs, and mind you, not just any unidentified flying objects, but again, objects travelling at tremendous speeds and performing maneuvers that no known aircraft can, skeptics like Tyson stated that the evidence for “UFOs” was practically nonexistent.

This simply isn’t true. The evidence for UFOs, before their official disclosure, was abundant. This really showed how little Neil had researched the topic. As a wise man once said, “Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance,” and that’s exactly what’s happening here.

“It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.” – Hermann Oberth, one of the founding fathers of modern rocketry.

He stated that, from a scientific standpoint, what we had at the time did not really constitute evidence at all. Meanwhile, hundreds of other academics and scientists were publishing articles in peer-reviewed journals, and giving lectures around the world regarding the scientific data and evidence that’s already been obtained from the UFO phenomenon.

The fact that Neil has been popularized, and given a mainstream media platform, is dangerous. Because he’s been given so much credibility, his words have the power to influence the minds and perception of anyone watching.

Well, when it comes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis, there is, as a former NASA astronaut and Princeton physics professor once said, “abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time.”

To portray the extraterrestrial hypothesis as ridiculous, which Neil does, is simply ignorant. From a scientific standpoint, witness testimony is not credible, but when you have several hundred individuals who’ve held high ranking positions within the military, the academic community, and within intelligence agencies as well as private military contractors like Lockheed Martin, telling us that some of these UFOs are indeed extraterrestrial in origin, and are much more technologically advanced than our own, it’s not something to ignore.

“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations. Who they are, where they are from, and what they want should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not be the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee.

Neill is also not taking into account the Black Budget, which funds programs that have no oversight from Congress, just as described by a 1997 U.S. senate report.

Does that mean the scientific developments within this world are not real because we don’t have access to them? Absolutely not.

• The former head of a Pentagon UFO Program unveiled on December 16th, Luis Elizondo, said that UFOs visiting Earth has been ‘proved beyond reasonable doubt’. Elizondo told The Independent: “I think it’s pretty clear this is not us, and it’s not anyone else. So one has to ask the question where they’re from.”

• In addition to interviewing pilots and military personnel who reported experiences with UFOs ‘acting in a way that seemed to be beyond human beings’ current capabilities’, the program also investigated the science of ‘wormholes’ and ‘warp drives’. Elizondo further stated that UFOs have often been found near nuclear and power plants.

• Elizondo said he resigned from the Pentagon program in October because he believes the government needs to provide more funding and support to UFO research. He immediately joined up with Tom DeLonge to form ‘To The Stars Academy’.

• The DoD UFO program was created by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada), with the support of the late Senators Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) and Republican Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), based upon their fears that the unexplained phenomena could be advanced weaponry or technology from foreign states such as Russia or China which could threaten the US, and therefore posed a national security issue.

• After seven years, and ‘very little to show for it’, Reid decided it wasn’t worth continuing. The program ostensibly ceased in 2012, but according to its backers the program remains in existence and officials continue to investigate UFO episodes brought to their attention by service members.

• Speaking to CNN, Elizondo said: ‘My personal belief is that there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone. (see video below)

 

The former head of a Pentagon program to understand the mysteries of UFOs has said that such objects visiting Earth had been ‘proved beyond reasonable doubt’.

Speaking to The Telegraph, former Intelligence Officer Luis Elizondo said that unidentified flying objects of advanced capabilities have been seen ‘lots’ over the years.

Elizondo, who presided over the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program until two months ago, told The Independent: ‘I think it’s pretty clear this is not us, and it’s not anyone else, so one has to ask the question where they’re from.’

The program, inaugurated in 2007 and funded with $22million of government funds, was revealed to the public earlier this month.

Elizondo further said that UFOs have often been found near nuclear and power plants.

He said he resigned from his government job because he believes the government needs to provide more funding and support.

The Defense Department finally acknowledged the existence of its long-secret UFO investigation program earlier this month, when officials shifted attention and funding to other priorities.

Its initial funding came largely at the request of former Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat long known for his enthusiasm for space phenomena, the newspaper said.

The program was created by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada), with the support of the late Senators Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) and Republican Ted Stevens (R-Alaska).

Their fears were that the unexplained phenomena could be advanced weaponry or technology from foreign states such as Russia or China which could threaten the US.

‘Was this China or Russia trying to do something or has some propulsion system we are not familiar with?’ a former staffer told Politico.

While Elizondo, who ran the initiative, stressed he wanted to take the ‘voodoo’ out of a ‘voodoo science,’ the program investigated some issues that sound like they’re straight out of a science fiction movie.

They included ‘wormholes’ and ‘warp drives’ as well as interviewing pilots and military personnel who reported experiences with UFOs.

Elizondo said that many of the Navy pilots described aircraft moving and acting in a way that seemed to be beyond human beings’ current capabilities.

‘We had never seen anything like it,’ he said.

The former staffer said that Reid believed there could be a valid national security issue and so agreed to fund the program.

But after a few years, and very little to show for it, Reid decided it wasn’t worth continuing.

‘After a while the consensus was we really couldn’t find anything of substance,’ he recalled. ‘They produced reams of paperwork. After all of that there was really nothing there that we could find. It all pretty much dissolved from that reason alone—and the interest level was losing steam. We only did it a couple years.’

‘There was really nothing there that we could justify using taxpayer money,’ he added. ‘We let it die a slow death. It was well spent money in the beginning.’

According to the Pentagon, the program ‘ended in the 2012 timeframe.’

Yet according to its backers, the program remains in existence and officials continue to investigate UFO episodes brought to their attention by service members, the newspaper said.
The Pentagon openly acknowledged the fate of the program in response to a Reuters query.
‘The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program ended in the 2012 timeframe,’ Pentagon spokeswoman Laura Ochoa said in an email.

‘It was determined that there were other, higher priority issues that merited funding and it was in the best interest of the DoD to make a change,’ she said.

But the Pentagon was less clear about whether the UFO program continues to hover somewhere in the vast universe of the U.S. defense establishment.

‘The DoD takes seriously all threats and potential threats to our people, our assets, and our mission and takes action whenever credible information is developed,’ Ochoa said.

What is less in doubt is former senator Reid’s enthusiasm for UFOs and his likely role in launching the Pentagon initiative to identify advanced aviation threats.

‘If you’ve talked to Harry Reid for 60 seconds then it’s the least surprising thing ever that he loves UFOs and got an earmark to study them,’ former Reid spokeswoman Kristen Orthman said in a message on Twitter.

Or as Reid himself said in a tweet that linked to the Times’ story: ‘The truth is out there. Seriously.’

Elizondo has since joined former Blink 182 vocalist Tom DeLonge’s company To The Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences – described as a ‘public benefit corporation’ that has ‘mobilized a team of the most experienced, connected and passionately curious minds from the U.S. intelligence community, including the CIA, Department of Defense, who have been operating under the shadows of top-secrecy for decades.’

Speaking to CNN, he said: ‘My personal belief is that there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone.

image002On April 12, 2013, The Rachel Maddow Show from MSNBC gave us a full segment on the upcoming Citizen’s Hearing on Disclosure to be held in Washington DC between April 29 and May 5, 2013. Her segment was titled “Watch This Space”  and mentioned that, not long ago, the White House was forced to respond (after receiving 12,000 signatures) to a “We the People Petition” to reveal an extraterrestrial presence visiting Earth. While the White House’s Office of  Science & Technology Policy responded in the negative in that “there is no credible evidence” for this.  Could it be that the White House will indefinitely represent the policy of official denial in a world in which Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Belgium, England and other countries are revealing part of the UFO report files? Can a simple denial from an Office (which  probably is neither informed, or has cared to carefully investigate) appease the general citizenry (perhaps for a few more decades) and that’s about it?

Probably, official denial won’t hold too much water this time as a 5-day marathon fake hearing in a room configured at the National Press Club to resemble a Senate hearing with the participation of 5 genuine former members of Congress.  This event invites us all who are convinced that there is serious credible evidence of the extraterrestrial presence to support -as Ed Komarek says-our leaders for them to come out finding the courage to treat this subject seriously. We should be healing, rather than negative about our leaders since we are all part of the same human situation facing an eye-opening reality. It is a big step for our leaders to take as initially worldviews are questioned and “orthodox” science (it wouldn’t be likely for ETs  to get here they say) which is the official “common sense” standard for most institutionally-focused persons would also be questioned.   However as Rachel Maddow showed (taking an honest initiative among the large U.S. networks), it may take a make believe congressional hearing to allow the Government to take notice move on with the issue (as the U.S. is one of the world’s last holdouts of official government denial of a major country’s interest in the UFO phenomenon).

This is news as it may well be a sure-footed beginning…not unlike taking a first step into a new direction that can change the destiny of a major journey; a first long-lasting, political-cultural step towards recognizing the legitimacy and respect for the issue of the many important (legal, scientific, philosophical, spiritual, political) implications of a genuine extraterrestrial presence. More news networks and opinion-guiding institutions should follow (unless told to keep away or to downplay it?) in one way or another even if their spoke persons -by training and habit- may still attempt to throw to us a reaction-provoking, tongue-and-cheek style, either to dismiss or simply to create a form of controversy.  Bryce Zabel and Richard Dolan’s analytically-adequate book A.D. (After Disclosure) might also become newsworthy, at least among the next generation of the daring intelligentsia trying to catch up with the Exopolitical issues that should have been recognized about 65 years ago (and are already being seriously discussed by individuals like Michael E. Salla and Manuel Lamiroy).

Rachel Maddow announced that the five former senators will be paid $ 20,000 each to conduct the hearings. I don’t know about that detail but I know that the witnesses in general are seriously reporting very real -even if incredible- aspects of a worldwide phenomenon that could be admitted in many objective and impartial courts and that has been officially and non-officially recognized since the 1940’s but which, in spite of enormous amounts of adequate evidence (including physically analyzed alien implants ) it has been largely ignored, debunked, laughed at and distorted by most of our cultural, political, scientific and religious leaders.  Let’s study the whole of the Exopolitical phenomena inclusively, both in its objective and in its qualitative aspects.

Other important pro-disclosure events (like Dr. Steven Greer’s Disclosure Project gathering of important witnesses in 2001 at the National Press Club) have taken place and interest has peaked and subsided as the media gave a lukewarm coverage to them. However, Larry King from CNN was valiant enough to interview several key witnesses as well. This time there is a greater opportunity for the issue to cease being in the entertaining fringe boondocks of Fantasia and to gradually (or even sooner) become a cultural “meme” as seriously considered as the national debt or other normal political concerns. The more respectable individuals like former Canadian Minister of Defence Paul Hellyer speak up, the less movers and shakers and regular folk will try to look the other way (so as to look respectable within formal culture). The less the issue elicits smirks, fear, denial or excessive, blinding enthusiasm , the more we’ll be able to collectively deal with its implications, change our selves on purpose as adults and (literally) soar to the Cosmos. My take on this is that dangerous technological secrets (one of the valid reasons for the cover-up/truth embargo) will still be kept for quite some time and -after some degree of official disclosure- we will continue with our lives while gradually opening up to a whole new world in which science, metaphysics and spirituality are seen as a more complete kind of knowledge.  Moreover, the possibility of strengthening positive, mutually-respectful relations with conscious human choice-respecting varieties of ETs could also come to fruition as this option would be in the natural interest of most people on Earth.
