• In December 2017, the New York Times broke the story of a $22 million U.S. Department of Defense UFO research program called the “Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program” headed by military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo, on the fifth floor of the Pentagon’s C Ring. The New York Times article mentions that materials gathered from UFO crash sites were shipped off to Bigelow Aerospace for examination. One of the authors of the NY Times report, Ralph Blumenthal, stated that the UFO materials were “…some kind of compound that they don’t recognize.” The host of the UFO Congress, Alejandro Rojas claims that Elizondo said of this UFO material, “I can tell you it is not an alloy like the New York Times claims.” “Elizondo has told me it is a ‘meta-material’ with strange isotopic values indicating it is not from Earth.” Elizondo has also mentioned that these encounters with UFO crash sites have occurred hundreds of times.

• But there has been no follow up regarding these UFO materials that have allegedly been recovered. In fact, we’re not really sure where these objects are. It still seems that we’ve been given only a part of the story.

• Historian and ufologist, Richard Dolan suggests that the government and the media collude to give a part of the truth made to look like the complete truth. It is part of a tactic where the media will share some genuine information, but doesn’t follow-up on the details. Says Dolan, “So, it’s five months later, and we’re clearly not dealing with a serious effort by the mainstream media, for that reason alone… I have had information now, from a very good source, that, what they’ve recovered aren’t metal alloys, that they’re being described as meta-materials…a very different thing.”

• Unfortunately, most of our media is controlled by a very small group of people who insist on ignoring revelations regarding UFOs and extraterrestrial contact. “The establishment media will never cover the UFO subject in a serious way, that is, until they [are] absolutely pushed to the wall ,” says Dolan.

 

“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about where we were headed and offered to help. But instead, we, or at least some of us, interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after.” – Paul Hellyer, former Canadian defence minister.

First off, the fact that the official disclosure of Unidentified Flying Objects has happened is huge, and those who are avid researchers of the phenomenon saw this one coming. For years, we’ve experienced, as I’ve said many times before, an “official campaign of ridicule and secrecy” – Ex-CIA Director Roscoe Hillenkoetter of the phenomenon. The establishment, in many ways, was responsible for the foolish articles that would constantly appear in mainstream media publications, absolutely ridiculing a topic that was and is actually quite real.

Today, we’ve seen a complete 180 degree switch. UFOs are no longer ridiculed by the mainstream, which should raise a serious eyebrow because very seldom does mainstream media share any sort of truth, especially when we’re talking about projects that rank among the most secretive in the world.

Unfortunately, most of our media is controlled by a very small group of people, and declassified documents alongside whistle-blower testimony has made this very clear. Intelligence agencies have close relationships with “every major wire service, newspaper, news weekly, and television network in the nation, this has helped us turn some ‘intelligence failure’ stories into ‘intelligence success’ stories.’ and has contributed to the accuracy of countless others.” This comes straight from a CIA document. Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, Sharyl Attkisson, Amber Lyon and many others have also provided many examples of what it’s like to work inside a media organization that’s dominated by government/corporate/deep state interests.

This is exactly why mainstream UFO disclosure is questionable, and there appears to be multiple things happening here. One is the fact that the phenomenon was so obvious for anybody who looked into it, from a research perspective. There was and has been more than ample evidence to show that the UFOs were and are real, that there are “objects in our atmosphere which are technically miles in advance of anything we can deploy.” – Lord Admiral Hill Norton, Former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

The statement below from Victor Marchetti, former special assistant to the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, doesn’t seem to hold so true anymore, at least the last part.
“We have, indeed, been contacted — perhaps even visited — by extraterrestrial beings, and the US government, in collusion with the other national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public.”

One of the biggest mouthpieces for “the establishment,” The New York Times, admitted something that the establishment, or facets of it, have been concealing for years; UFOs are real.

The Times broke the story about a secret Pentagon program, but any UFO researcher knows these programs are more in-depth, expensive, and expansive than anything that’s described here.

According to the Times, “In the $600 billion annual Defense Department budgets, the $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was almost impossible to find.”
Which was how the Pentagon wanted it.

For years, the program investigated reports of unidentified flying objects, according to Defense Department officials, interviews with program participants and records obtained by The New York Times.  It was run by a military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo, on the fifth floor of the Pentagon’s C Ring, deep within the building’s maze.

The Defense Department has never before acknowledged the existence of the program, which it says it shut down in 2012. But its backers say that, while the Pentagon ended funding for the effort at that time, the program remains in existence. For the past five years, they say, officials with the program have continued to investigate episodes brought to them by service members, while also carrying out their other Defense Department duties.

What’s Missing From Mainstream UFO Disclosure

One interesting thing to note here, is the sharing of information and truth in order to lie. For example, the MK Ultra program, a CIA based mind-control program is a great example. This is because the evidence became so obvious that the U.S. government had no choice but to disclose the reality of it. Although they clearly did not share all, the public thought they did. The program had been declassified and thus, all of the questions and inquiries into the program stopped because apparently, the government released everything there is to know.

This is what we could be seeing with the UFO program. Prior to this disclosure, dozens of other governments had already done so themselves, and the field is loaded with a ton of credible witness testimony as well as various documents released via The Freedom of Information Act.

Now that the Pentagon has admitted to this program, does that mean the existence of UFOs has been disclosed, and that’s all there is to it? Are we seeing a clever way of releasing information, in order to conceal more important information, or is this really a slow disclosure initiative by the U.S. government? And if it is, why are they doing it?

“Why is the mainstream covering this story the way they are? I have been saying for years that the mainstream media, the establishment media, will never cover the UFO subject in a serious way, that is, until they would be absolutely pushed to the wall and then do something…So the question is, what is going on here?…If they’re the voice of the establishment (mainstream media), then why have the establishment elected to put this story out?” – historian Richard Dolan, one of the most prominent thinkers of our time. He’s also one of the world’s leading researchers on the topic of UFO’s.

Richard goes on to explain, in the lecture linked below, that this is simply a tidbit of truth that’s been made to look like the complete truth. It brings up a number of key things that have been ignored by mainstream media regarding the recent UFO disclosure, which is being addressed through the To The Stars Academy.

“The best way to keep a secret is you pretend to share it, you give some information out, some genuine information, which they did, there were some significant revelations here, significant admissions, and much that was not followed up…” – Dolan

• In December 2017 The New York Times and The Washington Post reported on the Navy’s USS Nimitz carrier strike force F-A18 jets intercepting a “tic tac” shaped UFO (part of a “whole fleet of UFOs) over the Pacific Ocean southwest of San Diego. In May, George Knapp’s ‘I-Team’ (Las Vegas CBS affiliate KLAS-TV) obtained and released a 13-page Executive Summary prepared by and for the U.S. military analyzing the encounter.

• The Executive Summary related one Navy pilot’s observation of roiling waters in the ocean the size of a football field. “The disturbance appeared to be 50 to 100 meters in diameter and close to round. It was the only area and type of whitewater activity that could be seen and reminded him of images of something rapidly submerging from the surface like a submarine or a ship sinking.” As the pilot flew away, he could see that the disturbance had cleared and seas calmed.

• The Navy pilots never made visual contact with whatever caused the undersea disturbance. But the report stated that it may have been caused by an AAV (Anomalous Aerial Vehicle), which was unseen due to advanced cloaking capabilities that made the AAF “invisible to the human eye.”

• A submarine in the vicinity did not detect anything unusual underwater. If an object was indeed in the Pacific Ocean, “it would represent a highly advanced capability given the advanced capability of our sensors,” the report stated.

 

New details are emerging about a UFO sighting recorded by the U.S. military in the waters off the coast of California 14 years ago.

The 2004 incident involving the “Tic Tac” UFO, named because it was a fast-moving white object that resembled one of the mints, was first revealed late last year by The New York Times and The Washington Post.

KLAS, the CBS affiliate in Las Vegas, obtained a copy of a report “prepared by and for the military” in 2009 that details multiple interactions with anomalous aerial vehicles (AAVs) over two weeks in late 2004. The report also discussed the high speed and advanced cloaking capabilities that allowed the AAVs to evade observation and detection.

“The AAVs would descend ‘very rapidly’ from approximately 60,000 feet down to approximately 50 feet in a matter of seconds,” the report noted.

Pilots indicated there may have been something in the water as well. One pilot detailed a disturbance up to the size of a football field: “The disturbance appeared to be 50 to 100 meters in diameter and close to round. It was the only area and type of whitewater activity that could be seen and reminded him of images of something rapidly submerging from the surface like a submarine or a ship sinking.”

The disturbed area also resembled shoal water around “a barely submerged reef or island,” but as the pilot flew away, he could see that the disturbance had cleared and seas calmed. Although he never made visual contact with whatever caused the disturbance, the report stated that it may have been caused by an AAV, which was unseen due to cloaking “or invisible to the human eye.”

Another pilot described a disturbance beneath the water of an AAV that “looked like frothy waves and foam almost as if the water was boiling.”

A submarine in the vicinity did not detect anything unusual underwater. If an object was indeed in the Pacific Ocean, “it would represent a highly advanced capability given the advanced capability of our sensors.”

• One would think that with the recent revelations of the first known interstellar object to pass through our solar system, the “asteroid” Oumuamua, a long, narrow object that appears to be coated with organic material;  a Pentagon program that spent $22 million to study UFOs;  an accompanying cockpit video of a Navy jet tracking a pill-shaped UFO;  and the news that the government had stored exotic ‘non-terrestrial’ metals from UFO crash sites in a Nevada warehouse, the public would be in a frenzy to know more about the UFO and extraterrestrial presence.

• So, why doesn’t anyone seem to care?

• The writer blames President Trump. According to the writer, the day to day activities of Donald Trump has dominated every news cycle to the point that if a story is not about him, the public figures it must not be newsworthy.

• Trump has made everyday reality seem so alien to so many of us that news pertaining to actual aliens doesn’t seem nearly as wild as it would have in another era. Our ability to be shocked is exhausted. It feels as though ET himself could step out of a flying saucer in Times Square and half a day later the news cycle would move on to Trump’s latest tweetstorm.

• Ultimately, we cannot afford to let the extraordinary become ordinary – not in culture, not in politics, and certainly not in science. We cannot abandon our ability to dream and think big, to approach the world with a sense of wonder. Such an abandonment would be a betrayal of our children and the children we once were. Our reality may be distorted right now, but the truth is still out there.

 

When I was a kid, I dreamed of aliens. Not literally – I didn’t hallucinate in the middle of the night about being abducted and probed or anything like that. But I imagined with spine-tingling wonder what it might be like if humanity made contact with alien life, what it would mean for the world and for me.

That’s why it came as such a shock last week to see an article in the New York Times declaring that a small, ultra-secretive group at the Pentagon is actually, in real life, investigating UFOs. They have videos, one published in the Times, that beggar explanation. They have facilities in Nevada that had to be retrofitted to accommodate exotic metals from crash sites, materials which researchers deemed did not appear to originate from any country, and technology against which the program’s director said the United States could not defend itself.

Again, this is not being reported on some fly-by-night blog. This is the New York Times. Couple this information with the discovery of the first known interstellar object, Oumuamua, passing through our solar system – a long, narrow asteroid that appears to be coated with organic material – and it’s got me wondering: Why doesn’t anyone else seem to care? When I was growing up, or even a few years ago for that matter, these kinds of reality-bending revelations would have sparked massive public conversation and dominated media coverage. Now they pass without a blip.

What’s the deal?

To be sure, some of the explanation is probably as simple as public fatigue around these types of stories from less reputable sources. After decades of conspiracy theories and X-Files reruns, the threshold for credulity is extra high. And as a skeptically minded person myself, I think that’s a good thing. But when a publication like the New York Times stands behind this kind of story and people treat it with less interest than the latest Robert Mueller shoe-drop or the new tax law, it makes me think that something deeper is afoot – and as with so many things, I think the issue ties back to Donald Trump.

Since he rode down that golden escalator two and a half years ago (really, it’s only been two and a half years), Trump has occupied an outsized role in the psyche of America and, to a lesser degree, the world. After his shocking election in 2016, he’s dominated every corner of public discourse, reaching far beyond politics into sports, film, television, business, and so on. Every story seems to be about him, whether it’s intended to be or not.

A corollary of Trump’s refraction of reality, then, is that things which can’t in any way be related back to him seem inherently less important. He’s the protagonist of our cultural subconscious, no matter how much we might not want him to be, and his presence permeates our world so overwhelmingly that news which doesn’t in any way connect to him feels ancillary at best and irrelevant at worst – even if that news involves the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

Indeed, Trump has made everyday reality seem so alien to so many of us that news pertaining to actual aliens doesn’t seem nearly as wild as it would have in another era. Our ability to be shocked is exhausted. It feels as though ET himself could step out of a flying saucer in Times Square and half a day later the news cycle would move on to Trump’s latest tweetstorm.
