Gallup Polled Americans About UFOs For the First Time in Decades

 

Article by Anna Merlan                           February 25, 2020                           (vice.com)

• U.S. Social Research for Gallup, commonly known as the “Gallup poll”, is an organization that has been conducting public opinion survey polls on various topics since it was created in 1935. Ever since then, Gallup has asked the public about their beliefs in fringe topics including the paranormal, aliens and UFOs. Just three years after its creation, Gallup found that 70% of the public were aware that Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds broadcast was a radio play, while 30% thought that they were listening to a real alien invasion.

• In 1965, Gallup polled Americans about “flying saucers”.  91% of the people they polled said they’d never seen one.  5% said that they had seen one. And 4% didn’t know what a flying saucer was. In 1996, Gallup asked the American public the same thing. This time, 87% said they had never seen a UFO, 12% said they had seen one, and 1% were oblivious.

• In 2019, Gallup once again asked Americans about UFOs, seeing that so much UFO news had hit the mainstream press with the ‘Tic Tac UFO’ in 2017/18 and ‘Storm Area 51’ in the summer of 2019.  60% of the public believe that these so-called ‘UFO’ sightings can be explained by human activity or natural phenomena. But 33% attribute UFO sightings to alien visitation. “This group is potentially sympathetic to those who want to uncover what the government knows about alien landings, once and for all,” wrote Gallup director Lydia Saad, though she is not a believer herself.

• In a geographic breakdown, the Gallup poll revealed that the percentage of people who believed in alien UFOs was 40% on the West Coast of the US, while 32% of Americans in the East and South believe, and 27% of people in the Midwest thought that aliens were buzzing us. People in the West were also more likely to say they’ve seen a UFO themselves. Saad suggests that, since the West is home for ‘Area 51’, “perhaps there’s more talk and awareness.” Saad also notes that “They have better visibility in some of those Western states than we have out East. It’s hard to see the stars out here in Connecticut.”

• Gallup also surveys Americans’ paranormal beliefs. In 2005, Gallup asked people about ghosts and ESP. Their responses have shown that the American public is receptive to the unknown. “A certain percent of people believe in a lot of things,” says Saad. “People aren’t straitlaced or very literal. There’s quite a lot of openness out there to things that we cannot see.” Over the past thirty years, Gallup has periodically surveyed Americans on the JFK assassination. A majority believe there was more than one shooter. As Saad put it, “the fact [is] that people don’t trust the government to tell the truth. That’s been an ongoing dimension of public opinion.”

 

In 2019, the public opinion polling company Gallup decided to directly ask the American public about their experiences with UFOs again, for one simple reason: semi-credible evidence of their existence was back in the news.

“Between the ‘Storm Area 51’ phenomenon and the New York Times articles about the Navy changing its protocols for pilots reporting unidentified things in the air—there was news of pilots seeing bizarre planes traveling at hyperspeed—maybe we’re at the point where some of this is getting more credence,” Lydia Saad told VICE, recalling what she was thinking at the time.

Saad is the director of U.S. Social Research for Gallup, and she oversees polls about a lot of things that don’t involve aliens. But in 2019, she advocated for asking about them again, reasoning that the amount of UFO news flooding the atmosphere might have changed people’s opinions. (She’s not a believer herself, she said: “I’m boring.”) The company conducted two surveys, in June and August of that year. They found that a majority of Americans—60 percent—think UFO sightings can be explained by human activity or natural phenomena. But a full 33 percent think otherwise, saying they believe some UFO sightings can be attributed to alien visitation.

“This group is potentially sympathetic to those who want to uncover what the government knows about alien landings, once and for all,” Saad wrote at the time.

Those numbers were particularly high in the West, where 40 percent of residents believed some UFOs can be attributed to aliens, compared to 32 percent of residents in the East and South, and 27 percent in the Midwest. People in the West were also slightly more likely—20 percent—to say they’d seen UFO themselves, versus 12 percent in the East and 15-16 percent elsewhere.

Saad hesitates to say precisely why that regional difference exists, but she does have some theories. “The home of Area 51 conspiracy is the West, so perhaps there’s more talk and awareness,” she said. She also proposed another theory, laughing: “They have better visibility in some of those Western states than we have out East. It’s hard to see the stars out here in Connecticut.”

“I wouldn’t want to say conclusively,” she added.

Is Rudloe Manor the British Equivalent of America’s Roswell?

by Verona Jones                   May 21, 2019                   (huluwatcher.com)

• Underneath the typical English estate of Rudloe Manor (pictured above) are over two million square feet of underground tunnels, created during the 1930’s when Rudloe’s quarry was mined for Bath Stone. During the second world war, Rudloe Manor housed the Royal Air Force in these underground tunnels. The British government confiscated Rudloe manor and surrounding properties during WWII to build a munitions dump. However, Rudloe Manor was never released by England’s Ministry of Defense.

• Rudloe Manor is situated in the center of Wiltshire county where the majority of crop circles have been found. It is also home to Avebury Henge and Stonehenge, both Neolithic structures that are older than the Egyptian pyramids, and to ancient mounds, prehistoric sites, and burrows. This makes Wiltshire county a “window area” location that is prone to UFO sightings.

• After the famous American writer Dorothy Kilgallon wrote a newspaper article about a UFO crash in the 1940s, Rudloe became Britain’s version of Roswell. Kilgallon said she received her tips from an unidentified high-ranking British official who claims that the crashed spacecraft and its alien crew were gathered up by the British government and secreted away. Kilgallon died under rather mysterious circumstances. Is it possible that Kilgallon was silenced because of what she knew about the Rudloe UFO? Or was it because she was on the verge of discovering the plot surrounding the JFK assassination? No one is certain. All of her research on both JFK’s murder and the information about the British UFO crash went missing.

• On January 23, 1974, locals claimed that a spaceship crashed in the Berwyn Mountains in Wales, UK. The military were there in an instant to sanitize the area. The government claimed that it was simply an earthquake. Later they changed it to a meteorite to account for the bright lights that the local population saw in the sky that night. Declassified documents indicate that the British government does indeed know about the Berwyn Mountain UFOs, and theorists claim that the remains of the Welsh craft were taken to Rudloe Manor.

• In Season 12, Episode 3 of History’s “Ancient Aliens”, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos and former Ministry of Defense employee Nick Pope pay a visit to Rudloe Manor and the Corsham Computer Center (CCC) which is two miles away and connected to Rudlow Manor by the tunnel system. Tsoukalos found the site encircled by barbed wire fencing with patrol dogs and security cameras. A few minutes after his arrival, the local police show up and order the film crew to stop filming and leave the site. The MOD claims that the site is simply a data processing center for the Royal Navy. But there is no sign stating that this is Navy property. All of the secrecy points to a cover-up. (see 5:05 minute ‘Ancient Aliens’ clip on the Rudloe Manor below)

 

In Season 12, Episode 3 of Ancient Aliens, the mystery of Rudloe Manor is explored at depth. At first glance, the Rudloe Manor looks like any other English estate, but underneath the house and property, there are over two million square feet of underground tunnels.

The tunnels were created during the 1930s when Rudloe’s quarry was mined for Bath Stone. The mineral mined was used to build the nearby city known as Bath. During the second world war, Rudloe Manor housed the Royal Air Force (RAF) in her underground tunnels.

Now, this is where the mystery begins. England confiscated Rudloe manor and surrounding properties during the war to build munitions dumps. However, unlike other private installations used by the military during the war, Rudloe Manor was never released from England’s Ministry of Defense (MOD).

       Wiltshire County, UK

It was rumored that Rudloe was Britain’s version of Roswell because an American reporter and writer Dorothy Kilgallon had written a newspaper article about a crash in the 1940s. Kilgallon titled “One of the greatest women writers in the world” by Ernest Hemingway was known to have some of the most powerful contacts in the world. Although, Kilgallon had no proof of anything she wrote.

According to Kilgallon, she received her tips from a high-ranking British official who wished to remain unidentified (surprise…surprise). Neither the American or British government have been transparent when it comes to the subject of UFO’s which gives us reason to believe that something strange happened at Rudloe.

Like Roswell, the spacecraft remains along with the aliens were gathered up by the British government and secreted away. Ancient alien theorists believed that to be Rudloe Manor.

Bill Clinton Tried to Discover Truth About UFOs and JFK Murder

by Jon Austin                January 30, 2018                  (express.co.uk)

• When Bill Clinton became President in 1992, he appointed his friend, Webster Hubbell, Associate Attorney General and tasked him with finding out what there was to know about the JFK assassination and the UFO phenomenon.

• In Hubbell’s 1997 memoir, Friends in High Places, he relates that CIA chief James Woolsey provided Hubbell with information that the CIA had run two projects to study whether UFO were a threat to national security. The official determination was that UFOs did not pose a threat to national security, and that’s where it ended. Hubbell was allowed no information at all on the JFK assassination.

• Hubble concluded that there are “unacknowledged special access projects” within the US government that officials will not reveal, and that a “secret government wing” holds classified information that even the President is not privy to.

[Editor’s note]  This is the notorious “Deep State” that is keeping secrets.

 

President Bill Clinton tried to discover the truth about the assassination of JFK and UFOs while he was in office. Mr Clinton asked Webster Hubbell, his associate attorney general, to find out all he could about two of the world’s biggest conspiracy theories – that more people than Lee Harvey Oswald were involving in killing his predecessor John F Kennedy, and the US Government has covered up for years the fact that aliens have visited Earth.

According to his memoir Friends in High Places, Mr Hubbell hit a brick wall at every turn.
He was unable to find out anything more about the death of JFK.

Thousands of files made public by the CIA about the death late last year were not handed over.
And, while he was able to get the disclosure of some files on US interest in UFOs, there was no smoking gun evidence that aliens conspiracy theorists are seeking.

Mr Hubble concluded that a “secret government wing” holds all such data, that even the President is not privy to.

Mr Hubbell wrote that the two tasks given to him by Mr Clinton were to resolve the mysteries surrounding the murder of JFK and to get to the bottom of the understanding of the government on UFO sightings.

His conclusion of a secret government wing appears to tally with the claims of conspiracy theorists, like the Paradigm Research Group (PRG), which campaigns for alien disclosure that there are “unacknowledged special access projects” within the US government, that are not only top secret but not even admitted to.

However, Mr Hubbell was given some information on UFOs from the then CIA chief James Woolsey. Mr Woolsey revealed the agency had run two projects named ‘Project SIGN’ and ‘Project SAUCER’ to access whether if UFO sightings were a threat to national security.
The inquiries concluded there was no such threat.
