Veteran UFO Researcher Urges Vigilance Following Pentagon Disclosures

Pin It

By Robbie Graham      January 23, 2018         (mysteriousuniverse.org)

  • UFO researcher and author, Greg Bishop, is skeptical as to the motive of the U.S. military in December’s disclosure of the Pentagon’s $22M study of UFOs and the release of an F-18 cockpit video of a “tic tac” UFO, in concert with former government scientists and officials who left the government to join a disclosure initiative called “To the Stars Academy”.

  • Bishop thinks that Tom DeLonge’s ‘To the Stars’ is designed to direct attention away from something, rather than to reveal anything of substance. It may be to direct attention away from other secret programs and to “smack the hornet’s nest” to see who might react.

  • As a cautionary tale supporting his skepticism, Bishop recounts the tale of Paul Bennewitz. In 1979, Bennewitz lived in Albuquerque near Kirtland Air Force Base. He told the Air Force about strange lights he had seen at night over the base, moving in non-aircraft-like ways. The Air Force began feeding him disinformation and compelled him warn the public about an imminent alien invasion. The Air Force watched as Bennewitz became more and more mentally unstable. In 1988, Bennewitz received mental health treatment and he thereafter stopped discussing UFOs.

  • I find it troubling that those who least trust the power structure are more than willing to accept a story when it agrees with their preconceptions. That is when we should be the most discerning and vigilant,” says Bishop.

 

In December 2017, the US government broke its almost-fifty-year silence on the UFO issue through its proxy-acknowledgement of a Top-Secret Pentagon UFO project called the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program. The conclusions of the project, which ran from 2008 to 2012 at a cost of $22 million (and which continues quietly to this day), were that “aircraft” of apparently unearthly origin are routinely penetrating America’s airspace.

These aircraft, according the former head of the Pentagon project, Louis Elizondo, exhibit flight characteristics that defy the laws of our known physics. They do not belong to the United States of America, nor, apparently, to any other nation on Earth. Moreover, it emerged that the Pentagon has recovered “alloys” from UFOs which are currently being stored and studied behind lock-and-key in Las Vegas, Nevada with the oversight of billionaire aerospace industrialist Robert Bigelow.

The implications are startling, and the media are fast recognizing as legitimate a subject that for so long has served as little more than tabloid fodder. It is now (almost) official: UFOs are not only real, but potentially representative of non-terrestrial technologies. 2018 looks set to be a very big year for the UFO.

But we should proceed with our wits about us. Since 1947, US government engagement with the UFO phenomenon has been characterized almost exclusively by deception; by disinformation and perception management campaigns in service of agendas that remain as murky as ever.

Do the Pentagon’s recent UFO “disclosures” signal an imminent end to the decades of secrecy? Have the powers that be had a radical change of heart? Are they finally ready to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about their knowledge of the UFO enigma? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of those questions, it may be your belief speaking, rather than your logic.

Greg Bishop understands better than most that things are rarely, if ever, as they seem when it comes to UFOs and the US military/intelligence community. His book, Project Beta: The Story of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO Myth, tells the story of a sophisticated government campaign of disinformation perpetrated against one unsuspecting U.S. citizen, the effects of which rippled out across the UFO subculture and eventually reached the shores of pop-culture, significantly shaping our beliefs about flying saucers and the nature and agendas their potential occupants.

Greg Bishop

Here, Greg shares with me his thoughts on the recent Pentagon “disclosures,” and how we might better seek to solve the UFO riddle by removing government from the equation altogether and focusing instead on democratized, grassroots research.

RG: Summarise for us the disturbing case of Paul Bennewitz.

GB: In 1979, Paul Bennewitz was living in Albuquerque, New Mexico, right on the border of Kirtland Air Force Base, which was home to many secret programs. He noticed strange lights moving in non-aircraft-like ways on the Base at night, and decided to tell the Air Force.

That was a mistake. He also had a keen interest in the UFO subject and no filters at all, so he was happy to ride his beliefs to their illogical conclusions. Instead of handing him a cease and desist order, the Powers That Be decided it would be more profitable to string him along, hoping in the process to learn how he had figured out much of a coded message transmission system that had been painstakingly developed (as he was a very skilled electrical engineer) and who he was talking to as well as who was trying to talk to him. They hoped that this would reveal foreign agents and infiltrators.

Later, they began to feed him disinformation, but he believed it because he thought that he was working closely with the Air Force to warn everyone about an alien invasion. For the most part, Bennewitz provided his own narratives and details, but when the Air Force (and possibly other agencies) realized that he was becoming dangerously unstable, they did nothing to disabuse him of these harmful ideas. Concerned for his well-being, in 1988 his family placed him in a mental health facility. He recovered fairly quickly and generally stayed out of the UFO arena for the rest of his life.

RG: To what extent did the disinformation campaigns of the 1970s/80s influence the UFO subculture during those decades? Are we still feeling the effects today?

GB: I think they mainly served to keep people away from secret programs and to keep chasing their own tails. I do not think that they were perpetrated to keep researchers away from any great secret. As I see it, the main effect today is that UFO fans place far too much emphasis on the government cover up angle, which may have been at least part of the point from the beginning.

RG: What if any parallels do you see between DeLonge’s ‘To the Stars’ initiative and historical perception-management efforts?

GB: To me, it has the earmarks of an operation that is designed to direct attention away from something, rather than to reveal anything of substance. The fact that the government knows something about the subject and has been studying it for many years should come as no surprise to those interested in UFOs. I don’t think that the wider culture (especially younger people) were surprised either. The more salient point is that there is some acknowledgment of it by both the media and some places in academia because the story was published in a paper of record, even though I see it as essentially a publicity release disguised as a news story.

RG: Would you care to speculate as to possible agendas behind this recent release of information?

GB: Generally, when the intelligence community decides to move in some particular direction, it is designed to achieve more than one goal. One possible effect was mentioned in the last answer: Media outlets and academics seem to no longer see UFOs as a subject for automatic ridicule. This may serve to bring more intelligent thought to bear on the issue, which may stimulate original approaches and research with practical applications. Another reason may be to direct attention away from less obvious issues, as well as a way to “smack the hornet’s nest” and see who might react.

RG: The recent “revelations” about the Pentagon UFO program… should we be excited or concerned? Why?

GB: I think we should do neither. I believe we should watch quietly and unemotionally, but with close interest. Reacting to the news is most likely part of the agenda of those who released it.

RG: What are your thoughts on “Disclosure” in general? Is this something the UFO community should be pursuing—truth through government—or should we be following different lines of enquiry entirely in our quest to unravel the UFO enigma?

GB: I find it troubling that those who least trust the power structure are more than willing to accept a story when it agrees with their preconceptions. That is when we should be the most discerning and vigilant. It is also interesting that the recent “revelations” are closely following the myth and agenda around the UFO subject that has existed in the culture since at least the mid-1990s, with antecedents from long before that.

Evidence of an Alien or Lost Civilization in Antarctica?

by Arjun Walia        January 22, 2018          (collective-evolution.com)

  • UFO’s have been spotted many times over Antarctica, and many claim there are ET remnants and a lost civilization being covered up in Antarctica.

  • Over the past seventy years we have seen an enormous amount of evidence showing that UFOs are real, and that some of them might be of extraterrestrial origin. The U.S. government and former government officials recently released information of a Pentagon study of UFOs and an F-18 cockpit video tracking a “tic tac” shaped UFO in 2004. They claim that the Pentagon program was shut down. But these types of black budget programs are never actually shut down. This is a type of secrecy that’s common in the secret world of black budget and special access programs.

  • The government and power elite have deceived us with fake news on so many different topics. Examples would be the so-called war against drugs and terrorism. UFO groups and movements have a long history of infiltration by government agents. The UFO field is full of disinformation. One must do their research and learn to use their discernment.

  • Still, there is plenty of information out there that comes from sources that can be completely verified. Based on corroborating evidence, it appears that a clandestine black budget Secret Space Program does exist. If anybody is claiming to come from this black budget program, the least we can do is hear them out and then compare it with all the existing information we have today.

  • Corey Goode claims to have been part of the Secret Space Program, having numerous experiences with extraterrestrial beings. It is true that Goode’s credentials in this program cannot be verified, and some seriously doubt his credibility. Corey appears to be sharing information that could be real, although one cannot yet identify who he truly is within these programs. This is why we must use our intuition when looking at this sort of information. ‘How does it feel?’ is a question to ask yourself. (see 2:52 minute video clip of Corey Goode below)

  • When it comes to the topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials, who can we really trust? The best sources are the opinions of researchers from around the world, and the ‘whistleblowers’ that come forward. Many of these people have some amazing stories that corroborate the stories of others and the information that’s already out there. This makes it easier for UFO researchers to put two and two together.

  • It’s up to you to decide what resonates and what doesn’t.

 

Are there aliens in Antarctica? Were there ever? The idea of aliens or a lost civilization having once inhabited, or still inhabiting, Antarctica has been talked about for some time. This isn’t all that far fetched when you consider that we have been, and are currently being visited by extraterrestrials.

It has been hypothesized for centuries, and within the past decade alone, we have seen an enormous amount of evidence showing that UFOs are real, and that some of them might be extraterrestrial in origin. In fact, at the end of 2017, the US Government released an official video of one of these objects for the first time ever. It was filmed travelling at speeds and performing maneuvers that no known air-craft can.  The Navy pilot, and another recently retired gentleman from the Department of Defense, Louis Elizondo, both shared their belief that these objects are extraterrestrial, as have many others before them.

The footage came via an “Ariel Threat Identification Program” that had been running, and claims say that it was shut down. Based on all of my research, these programs have been running for a long time, and they’ve never actually been shut down.

It’s a type of secrecy that’s commonly seen in the secret world of black budget and special access programs.

There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations. That it behooves us, in case of these people in the future or now should turn hostile, to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want. This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defense Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

Corey Goode, author and alleged Secret Space Program whistleblower has talked about a process of revealing this UFO and ET information to the public slowly. A process referred to as ‘drip disclosure’ or ‘slow disclosure.’ This in itself raises a number of questions and concerns, one of them being the fact that the government and those who use their power to influence government policy have deceived us and provided the public with fake news on so many different topics. A few great examples would be the so-called war against drugs and terrorism. Why should we expect accuracy and truth when it comes to the topic of UFOs?

In a recent interview we did with Corey Goode, we spoke about some of the recent findings in Antarctica as it relates to warm environments beneath the ice that could harbour life. This immediately raises the question of “are we about to hear more drip disclosure about Antarctica?” Why is this question raised? Because many have claimed there are ET remnants and a lost civilization being covered-up in Antarctica.

UFO’s have also been spotted many times in Antarctica. Here’s one document from the CIA archives to use as an example, it states as follows:

ANTARCTIC FLYING SAUCERS” – A group of red, green, and yellow flying saucers has been seen flying over Deception Island for two hours by Argentine, Chilean and British bases (military) in Antarctica. The flying saucers were also seen flying in formation over the South Orkney islands in quick circles.”

What’s Going On In Antarctica, Who Can We Trust? 

When it comes to the topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials, who can we really trust? The best sources to go off of are the documents that we have, the opinions of researchers from around the world, and the ‘whistleblowers’ that come forward. This is the best way to present information in a credible way and have it touch the masses, especially those who are still unaware of the subject. The positions these whistleblowers have held in their own is right is quite shocking, from ex-Directors to Lockheed Martin, to four star generals and more.

 

That being said, UFO groups and movements also have a long history of infiltration by government connections. Whether they do this, and have done this to find out more information, or to simply litter the field with disinformation is completely separate topic.  Organizations like MUFON or initiatives like Project Bluebook are great examples.

This field is full of disinformation, and one must really do their research and learn to use their discernment.

A more modern-day example would be the To The Stars Academythe group that the US Government went through to release their recent UFO video.

For the most part, the whistleblowers that have come forward are all sharing some very interesting information that corroborates with a lot of information others in the field are sharing as well.  To many of them, the reality of the extraterrestrial hypothesis isn’t even a question, based on what they’ve experienced.

I also learned about incidents involving nuclear weapons, and among these incidents were a couple of nuclear weapons sent into space were destroyed by the extraterrestrials. . . . At the very end of the 70s and the early 80s, we attempted to put a nuclear weapon on the moon and explode it for scientific measurements and other things, which was not acceptable to the extraterrestrials. They destroyed the weapon before it got to the moon.” – Colonel Ross Dedrickson 

The next step, would be to examine those who claim to have contact with these beings, and many have.

Yes, it’s both. It’s both literally, physically happening to a degree; and it’s also some kind of psychological, spiritual experience occurring and originating perhaps in another dimension. And so the phenomenon stretches us, or it asks us to stretch to open to realities that are not simply the literal physical world, but to extend to the possibility that there are other unseen realities from which our consciousness, our, if you will, learning processes over the past several hundred years have closed us off.” – John Mack

Many of these people have some amazing stories that corroborate with the stories of others and the information that’s already out there. This makes it easier for UFO researchers to put two and two together.

Scientists Wrong In Ruling Out ‘Alien Megastructure’ Around Dimming Star

by Norman Byrd          January 21, 2018          (inquisitr.com)

• “Tabby’s Star”, or KIC 8462852, is over 1000 light years from Earth and displays four separate dips in the star’s brightness. It made news in 2017 that its dimming might be due to an alien megastructure or some type of artificial construct of alien design such as a ‘Dyson Sphere’ partially covering the star.

• Now, in an article posted to Phys.org, one of the lead co-authors of the study, the star’s namesake Tabetha Boyajian, notes that the dimming and brightening of Tabby’s Star is due to a massive cloud of dust and is “not opaque, as would be expected from a planet or alien megastructure.” She and her co-authors say that an artificial alien structure can be ruled out because if it were a solid megastructure, the wavelength depth of the dimming would more consistent.

• But couldn’t an alien structure surrounding the system’s star not necessarily be of a solid material, but rather made of a type of material that would allow some filtering of the light? Or what if it is only partially completed and therefore not consistent in its dimming? It is, therefore, wrong to strictly rule out the possibility that the star’s dimming might be due to an alien construct around the star. On the other hand, it could be simply due causes that are natural in the cosmos, as the astrophysicists now say.

 

One of the continuing story subtexts in all the recent deep space and exoplanet discovery articles, not to mention those covering the accumulating data from planets and moons within our own Solar System, is that the existence of alien life cannot be ruled out. As an exception to this, in further study of Tabby’s Star, the mysterious dimming star KIC 8462852, it was revealed that the cause of the dimming effect was most likely due to a natural phenomenon, and it could be ruled out that the strange effect was caused by an alien megastructure or some artificial construct of alien design.

But is that correct?

To be precise, according to an article posted to Phys.org, one of the lead co-authors of the study, star namesake Louisiana State University’s Tabetha Boyajian, noted that the dimming and brightening of KIC 8462852 was due to a massive cloud of dust and was “not opaque, as would be expected from a planet or alien megastructure.” The conclusion was derived from perusing months of observation data of the so-called “dimming star” — which is over a thousand light years from Earth — that captured four separate dips in the object’s brightness. By studying the various wavelengths, it was determined that the effect, if it were a more solid or opaque obstruction, would present itself in the dimming data as a similarity in wavelength depth.

Penn State’s Jason Wright, also a co-author of the study, supports Boyajian’s conclusion. He writes in his blog, AstroWright, that the new study suggests “we now have no reason to think alien megastructures have anything to do with the dips of Tabby’s Star.”

Although they may be correct, Boyajian and Wright’s conclusion could well be flawed in the thinking that an extraterrestrial civilization so advanced to be able to build an alien megastructure that could surround (or even partially surround) something as large as a star would be constrained to using materials that might not allow some filtering. That is, not getting similar wavelengths or some wavelength uniformity from the dimming star data might not actually rule out an alien megastructure if such a massive construct was built using materials that allowed at least some of the star’s light to pass through.

And then there is the possibility that the dimming is caused by a structure that is itself only partially complete.
