US Government ‘Forces NASA to Cut ISS Feed Whenever UFOs Appear for National Security’

• Stephen Bassett has been campaigning since 1996 for the US government to end the “truth embargo” and declassify its knowledge of extraterrestrials and UFOs. He is the Executive Director of the Paradigm Research Group which lobbies Congress for disclosure of the UFO phenomenon. In an exclusive Daily Star interview, Bassett said that “NASA was formed in 1958 by the Space Act, and by then the government was already well aware of the extraterrestrial presence.” But since the Russians were developing their space agency, the US needed to create a comparable civilian space agency.

• The drafters of the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 realized that the space agency would “very likely” encounter the UFO/ET phenomenon which government insiders were intent on keeping a secret. So they included a clause in the Space Act that should NASA encounter anything that affected national security, they must say and do nothing and turn it over to the Department of Defense. Since the very existence of ET and UFOs is a matter of national security, this effectively prevented NASA from talking about UFOs at all.

• Bassett expressed his sympathy for NASA personnel. NASA’s ‘hands are tied’, said Bassett. “They have been in a really tough spot.” “The (UFO and extraterrestrials) are out there, (NASA) probably sees things, but they can’t address it. It has to go to the Pentagon.” And so NASA has to lie to the public in order to obey the federal law. NASA is a “victim” of the ‘truth embargo’ says Bassett. “I greatly respect NASA, but they are in an impossible position.” “Since 1958, NASA has been between a rock and a hard place.”

• Many researchers suspect that whenever a UFO turns up on NASA’s live feed from the International Space Station, that they must deliberately cut the feed and blame it on a ‘loss of signal’.

• Bassett says that if the existence of aliens were publicly revealed, rendering the government’s truth embargo moot, then NASA would throw a party. This would be a “massive boom” for NASA. By lifting this secretive posture, says Bassett, “interest in space and space research (would) expand and explode. NASA will be the recipient of that.” So the day after the government finally confirms the ET presence, “… they will be throwing some serious parties at various NASA facilities around the country”.

 

NASA has its “hands tied” and is forced to cut the International Space Station (ISS) live feed when UFOs turn up, according to a campaigner who has studied alleged alien phenomena for years.

Conspiracy theorists have often claimed the US space agency covers up the existence of extraterrestrial life by terminating the live feed from the ISS at the exact time UFOs appear.

This has never been proven and, according to the message that pops up when the feed is cut, it is simply down to a “temporary loss of signal with the International Space Station”.

But Stephen Bassett, who has been relentlessly campaigning since 1996 for the government to declassify its supposed knowledge of aliens, believes NASA’s hands are tied.

He told Daily Star Online: “They have been in a really tough spot and I feel for them and so if they are turning off the video cameras because something is flying by the space station it is not NASA being the bad guy.

“It’s them essentially obeying the law, which is what the National Security Act is, and    simply not doing anything which would, quote, endanger the truth embargo because under the act of national security it has to remain.”

Stephen is the Executive Director of the Paradigm Research Group, an organisation set up to end the supposed government-imposed “truth embargo” on extraterrestrial presence on Earth.

This truth embargo, he explained, is what is stopping information on aliens being released to the public and something that NASA is also the victim of.

“I greatly respect NASA but they are in an impossible position,” he continued.

Navy’s Attitude About Releasing UFO Videos More Disturbing Than the Videos

Listen to “E119 10-8-19 Navy’s Attitude About Releasing UFO Videos More Disturbing Than the Videos” on Spreaker.

Article by Thomas L. Knapp                 September 25, 2019                  (duluthnewstribune.com)

• The US Navy recently confirmed that three online videos of military jet encounters with UAPs: ‘unidentified aerial phenomenon’ are authentic. But what is more disturbing is that the Navy seems less concerned with the UAPs themselves, than with the notion that the videos, while not classified, had not been “cleared for public release”. A Pentagon spokesperson told The Black Vault website, “The videos were never officially released to the general public by the (Department of Defense) and should still be withheld.”

• The oldest ‘Tic Tac’ UFO video is from 2004. Now, 15 years later the Navy still hasn’t determined what these UAPs are. But the Navy’s biggest concern is that the videos were released? The videos are not “confidential,” “secret,” or “top secret,” based on degrees of potential damage to national security. No such long-term category as “not cleared for public release” should exist with respect to information generated or acquired by the government.

• If the government works for the people, why should it keep so many secrets from the people in the first place? There should be a time limit in which any given piece of information must either be classified or made available to the public. All government information not classified within 30 days of its creation or acquisition should be stored in databases that the public can search at will. Concealing information from the public should be incredibly difficult — not a matter of course. “Not cleared for public release” shouldn’t exist as a new category.

• UFOs may be extraterrestrial in origin. The public needs more information. But it shouldn’t be the government’s prerogative to conceal such information from the rest of us indefinitely, tell us tall tales about weather balloons and swamp gas, and offer lame “national security” excuses when called out. A bigger problem than determining what these UFOs are may be the how the post-World War II national security state apparatus has developed a culture of general secrecy that we accommodate at our peril.

 

The U.S. Navy confirms that three online videos showing two military air encounters with what it calls “unexplained aerial phenomena” and the rest of us call “unidentified flying objects” are authentic, as Popular Mechanics reported.

The videos are interesting, and some might find them disturbing. What’s more disturbing to me is that the Navy thinks the videos are none of our business, not even 15, or even four, years after they were recorded in 2004 and 2015.
Pentagon spokesperson Susan Gough told The Black Vault website, “The videos were never officially released to the general public by the DoD (U.S. Department of Defense) and should still be withheld.”

The videos aren’t classified. They just haven’t been “cleared for public release.”

No such long-term category as “not cleared for public release” should exist with respect to information generated or acquired by government.

There are legal standards for “classifying” information as “confidential,” “secret,” or “top secret,” based on supposed degrees of damage to national security disclosure of the information might cause.

I’m personally against allowing the state to keep secrets at all. They claim to work for us. If we’re really their bosses, we should get to look over their shoulders any time we please.

Scientist Claims USS Nimitz UFO Might Have Been Looking For Something Underwater

Listen to “E113 10-3-19 Scientist Claims USS Nimitz UFO Might Have Been Looking For Something Underwater” on Spreaker.

Article by Jake Massey                     September 19, 2019                       (ladbible.com)

• Kevin H. Knuth, a former NASA research scientist, has written a research paper entitled: ‘Estimating Flight Characteristics of Anomalous Unidentified Aerial Vehicles’ which claims that the ‘Tic-Tac’ UFO spotted by two jets from USS Nimitz carrier group off of San Deigo in 2004 may have been watching over something submerged under water.

• The Navy jets’ encounter with the ‘Tic-Tac’ UFO took place in 2004, but only came to light in December 2017 following a New York Times report which revealed the US Department of Defense ran a special program designated to tracking UFOs known as the ‘Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program’. The Times article included a video taken by Navy fliers of the Tic-Tac UFO in flight, (or “UAP” – “unidentified aerial phenomenon” as the Navy prefers to call them).

• On that day of the UAP sighting in 2004, Chief Petty Officer Kevin Day saw a mysterious submerged object in the water. Knuth relates in his research paper that, based on Day’s description, the UAPs acted as if they “were looking for something by slowly tracking south at 100 knots or so at a 28,000ft altitude. The Tic-Tac UAP was then observed to be hovering with erratic motion over the churning water.” “An encounter with the Tic-Tac UAP ensued. After the encounter the submerged object was no longer present.”

• Knuth continues: “Clearly, the UAP was interested in the submerged object.” “It is possible that this object and others like it are the reason that the UAPs were in the area.” “Day reported that the UAPs appeared to be avoiding the Nimitz Carrier Group and its aircraft, which is very different from the encounters on the East Coast involving the Roosevelt Carrier Group in which case the UAPs seemed to be seeking out encounters.”

 

A former NASA researcher has claimed the UFO spotted by two jets from USS Nimitz may have been watching over something submerged under water.

If none of this means anything to you, a little explanation. Basically, the encounter took place way back in 2004, but only came to light in 2017 following a New York Times report which revealed the US government had a special programme designated to tracking UFOs.

A video showed the UFO – which is formally known as a Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) and looks a bit like a Tic-Tac – appearing to fly in front of camera.

Now, Kevin H. Knuth – a former NASA research scientist – has offered a theory as to what was going on, based on the description of witness and Navy Chief Petty Officer Kevin Day. The new hypothesis is based on the fact Day saw a mysterious submerged object in the water during the UAP sighting.

According to the Daily Star, Knuth writes in his research paper ‘Estimating Flight Characteristics of Anomalous Unidentified Aerial Vehicles’: “The thought was triggered by Kevin Day’s description of the UAPs as acting as if they were migrating.

“They also seemed to act like they were looking for something by slowly tracking south at 100 knots or so at 28,000ft altitude. The Tic-Tac UAP was then observed to be hovering with erratic motion over the churning water.

“An encounter with the Tic-Tac UAP ensued. After the encounter the submerged object was no longer present.
“Clearly, the UAP was interested in the submerged object.”
