Why Joe Rogan is “100% Convinced” Aliens Are Among Us

• Joe Rogan (pictured above) recently moved his popular podcast from LA to Austin, Texas. The studio’s red lighting and tunnel-like shape give the new location a slightly futuristic feel. This was fitting in the September 9th episode with comedian Ron White when the topic of conversation turned to aliens and UFOs. Rogan asked rhetorically, “when will the aliens land? I’ve been thinking the aliens are coming.”

• “I’m convinced, I’m 100% convinced,” he said about the idea that aliens are “dancing among us.” Rogan says that he used to be 60% certain. But he revealed that he’s “talked to people that have seen them. I talked to this one guy who was a pilot,” referring to Commander David Fravor. “He encountered this thing that they called the Tic-Tac UFO. This is an object that they tracked on radar that went from 60,000 feet to one foot above sea level in less than a second.” This particular sighting was actually recorded by the US Navy, with its authenticity confirmed by the Pentagon in 2019. Officials still claim not to know what the object was.

• Rogan then discussed his 2019 interview with physicist Bob Lazar who worked on back-engineering a craft found by the government, saying that Lazar “right away knew that this was no technology that we had currently available.” The propulsion system Lazar describes in a documentary bears striking similarities to the system of the Tic-Tac UFO.

• Rogan admitted that he’s “always worried about things I wanna believe. If I wanna believe it I’m always skeptical.” Perhaps Rogan’s audacity to seriously talk about aliens and UFOs – and government secrets – will prompt more guests with alien-related experience to share their stories.

Since Joe moved his podcast studio from hectic LA to Texas for a fresh start, the studio design of the

classic brick walls and purple curtains has gone through a dramatic transformation.

The brand new Texas studio boasts some interesting red lighting, a tunnel-like shape, and some protruding black and red panels among other ornaments that give the new location a slightly futuristic feel.

It seems only fitting that the conversation about aliens would arise with the background looking like it had come straight out of a sci-fi movie. He began by broaching the bizarre topic with “when will the aliens land? I’ve been thinking the aliens are coming.”

“I’m convinced, I’m 100% convinced,” he said about the idea that aliens are “dancing among us,” but he “used to be 60%.” He continued by revealing that he “talked to people that have seen them. I talked to this one guy who was a pilot,” regarding his conversation with a man named Commander Fravor.

“He encountered this thing that they called the Tic-Tac UFO. This is an object that they tracked on radar that went from 60,000 feet to one foot above sea level in less than a second.”

Ex-Air Force Members’ Stories Will Convince You UFOs Are Real

Article by Patrice A. Kelly                             August 27, 2020                                   (filmdaily.co)

• Are UFOs real? According to Luis Elizondo, former military intelligence officer and past head of the Pentagon’s now-defunct Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, “I think we’re at the point now where we’re beyond reasonable doubt that these things exist. We know they’re there – we have some of the greatest technology in the world that has confirmed their existence.”

• Since the term ‘UFO’ describes aerial objects that defy explanation, some believe that they represent technology deployed by a hostile human source. Evaluating the potential threats posed by UFOs should, therefore, involve the collaboration of leaders around the world, said Elizondo, who is now a director of global security and special programs at To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science, a private agency pursuing evidence of UFOs.

• The U.S. government has been collecting reports on UFOs since the 1950s – in the Air Force’s Project Blue Book, from 1952 to 1969, and through the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), a federal agency that compiled witness accounts of UFO encounters from the 1950s through the 1980s.

• On November 14, 2004, Cmdr. David Fravor (pictured above) and Lt. Cmdr. Jim Slaight were on a routine training mission in their F/A-18F Super Hornets, 100 miles out into the Pacific from the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier. An operations officer aboard the USS Princeton asked if they were carrying weapons. Commander Fravor replied that they only carried ‘dummy missiles’ as they had not been expecting any hostile exchanges off the coast of San Diego. “Well, we’ve got a real-world vector for you,” the radio operator said.

• For two weeks, the Princeton had been tracking UFOs. The objects appeared suddenly at 80,000 feet, and then hurtled toward the sea, eventually stopping at 20,000 feet and hovering. Then they either dropped out of radar range or shot straight back up. The radio operator instructed the pilots to investigate. The two fighter jets headed toward the “merge plot” with objects. When they reached that point, they could see nothing around them. Then Fravor looked down at the ocean. Although the seas were calm, waves were breaking over something that was just below the surface. Whatever it was, it was big enough to cause the sea to churn.

• Hovering fifty feet above the churn was an oval aircraft of some kind, whitish, around forty feet long. The craft was jumping around erratically, staying over the wave disturbance but not moving in any specific direction. Commander Fravor began a circular descent to get a closer look, but as he got nearer the object began ascending toward him, as if the UFO were coming to meet him halfway. Fravor abandoned his slow circular descent and headed straight for the object. Then the object peeled away. “It accelerated like nothing I’ve ever seen,” said Fravor.

• The operations officer on the Princeton told the jets to rendezvous at a ‘cap point’ sixty miles away. The jets were near the cap point when the Princeton radioed: “Sir, you won’t believe it,” the radio operator said, “but that thing is (already) at your cap point.” “We were at least 40 miles away, and in less than a minute this thing was already at our cap point,” Commander Fravor related. By the time the two fighter jets arrived at the rendezvous point, the object had disappeared.

• The fighter jets returned to the Nimitz, where everyone on the ship had learned of Commander Fravor’s encounter and was making fun of him. Fravor’s superiors did not investigate further and he went on with his career, deploying to the Persian Gulf to provide air support to ground troops during the Iraq war. But recalling that day off of San Deigo, Commander Fravor said, “I have no idea what I saw.” “It had no plumes, wings or rotors and outran our F-18s.” Fravor added, “I want to fly one.”

 

There’s no question that the world has an ongoing fascination with UFOs. Although reports of sightings are often met with derision– as delusions of people who wear “tin-foil hats” – there is no doubt that many people have seen something unexplained whizzing through the sky. So the question becomes – are UFOs real?

According to Luis Elizondo, former military intelligence officer and past head of the Pentagon’s now-defunct Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), they just might be.

They do exist . . .

“I think we’re at the point now where we’re beyond reasonable doubt that these things exist,” Elizondo said. “We know they’re there – we have some of the greatest technology in the world that has confirmed their existence.”

Though some label UFOs as alien spacecraft, the term merely describes aerial objects that defy explanation. One possibility is that they represent technology deployed by a hostile human source, so it’s impossible to say for sure that UFOs are harmless, Elizondo said.

Evaluating the potential threats posed by UFOs should, therefore, involve the collaboration of leaders around the world, remarked Elizondo, who left the Pentagon in 2017 and is now a director of global security and special programs at To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science, a private agency pursuing evidence of UFOs.

UFOs or UAPs

UFOs are also known as unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs. The U.S. government has been collecting reports of these enigmatic objects since the 1950s in the Air Force’s Project Blue Book, from 1952 to 1969, and through the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), a federal agency that compiled witness accounts of UFO encounters from the 1950s through the 1980s.

Nimitz sighting

One of the most famous cases of UFO sightings happened to pilots assigned to the USS Nimitz on November 14, 2004, over the Pacific Ocean. Cmdr. David Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Jim Slaight were on a routine training mission 100 miles out into the Pacific when the radio in each of their F/A-18F Super Hornets crackled. An operations officer aboard the U.S.S. Princeton, a Navy cruiser, wanted to know if they were carrying weapons.

Pentagon UFO Videos Marking Return of Biblical Extraterrestrials

Article by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz                              May 3, 2020                            (breakingisraelnews.com)

• The Pentagon recently released and confirmed the three unidentified aerial phenomenon videos taken by US Navy fighter jets in 2005 and in 2015 of wingless aircraft traveling at hypersonic speeds with no visible means of propulsion. One Navy pilot, Retired Cmdr. David Fravor told ABC News, “I can tell you, I think it was not from this world.” “I have never seen anything in my life, in my history of flying that has the performance, the acceleration — keep in mind this thing had no wings.”

• Unidentified aircraft with ‘other-worldly’ technology should not come as a surprise to Biblical scholars familiar with Jewish tradition. The appearance of ‘aliens’ may be a harbinger to the coming of the Messiah.

• The sixth chapter of Genesis describes interactions between strange creatures called ‘Nephilim’ (literally ‘the fallen’) and men. “It was then, and later too, that the Nephilim appeared on earth—when the divine beings cohabited with the daughters of men, who bore them offspring. They were the heroes of old, the men of renown.” Genesis 6:4

• In the pre-flood era of Noah, the Bible says that the “Sons of Elohim” cohabited with the daughters of men, and God immediately decided to limit man’s lifespan to one-hundred and twenty years. The offspring of these unions were called ‘Nephillim’.

• The nephillim are mentioned again in the Book of Numbers as some of the giant residents of Israel present after the Exodus. “We saw the Nephilim there—the ‘Anakites’ are part of the Nephilim—and we looked like grasshoppers to ourselves, and so we must have looked to them.” Numbers 13:33

• Some Biblical scholars also point to Judges as proof of extraterrestrials. “The stars fought from heaven, From their courses they fought against Sisera… “Curse Meroz!” said the angel of Hashem. “Bitterly curse its inhabitants, Because they came not to the aid of Hashem, To the aid of Hashem among the warriors.” Judges 5:20-23 According to the Talmud, Meroz is a certain planet in the stellar sphere whose inhabitants were cursed for refusing to do God’s will.

• The Talmud (Sanhedrin 97a) describes how the ‘nephillim’ will return as a part of the Messianic process. In the Talmud, Rabbi Yitzchak asks Rabbi Nachman, “Do you know when Bar Naphli (the son of the fallen Nephilim) will come?” Rav Nachman replies, “It is Messiah”. In the language of the Talmud, ‘Naphli’ means “giant”. This is based on a verse from Amos which connects ‘nophelet’ (the fallen) with the return of the House of David. So “Bar Naphli” refers to specific ‘giants’ who are connected with the coming of the Messiah.

 

The Pentagon released three videos taken from U.S. Navy fighter jets, confirming the videos showed “unexplained aerial phenomenon”, seeming to admit for the first time that the Earth has been visited by alien species with advanced technology. This should not come as a surprise to Biblical scholars and according to Jewish tradition, the appearance of aliens may be a harbinger to the Messiah.

VIDEOS OF WINGLESS AIRCRAFT AT HYPERSONIC SPEEDS

Last Monday, Susan Gough, a Defense Department spokesperson, released a statement confirming that the videos, which had appeared on the internet, were authentic. The footage seems to show wingless aircraft traveling at hypersonic speeds with no visible means of propulsion.

The official confirmation was intended “to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real or whether or not there is more to the videos.”

“The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as ‘unidentified’”, the statement said. The Department of Defense has authorized the release of three unclassified Navy videos. One video taken in November 2004 and another in January 2015 were recorded by F/A-18 Hornet fighter pilots during military training exercises in restricted airspace. Another was also recorded in January 2015. The videos have been circulating in the public domain after unauthorized releases in 2007 and 2017.

“After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena.”

Two of the videos were included in a December 2017 New York Times article that explained how the U.S. government ran a program for investigating reports of unidentified flying objects until 2012. The third video was released in March 2018 by To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science, a private scientific research and media group.

PILOTS REACT

Retired Cmdr. David Fravor spoke to ABC News in 2017 about the video he filmed during a routine training flight approximately 100 miles out over the Pacific, in November 2004.

“I can tell you, I think it was not from this world,” Fravor said to ABC. “I’m not crazy, haven’t been drinking. It was — after 18 years of flying, I’ve seen pretty much about everything that I can see in that realm, and this was nothing close.”

“I have never seen anything in my life, in my history of flying that has the performance, the acceleration — keep in mind this thing had no wings.”
Navy pilot Lt. Danny Accoin said in the 2019 History Channel documentary series Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation that unlike fighter jets, the airborne objects in the videos had “no distinct wing, no distinct tail, no distinct exhaust plume.”
