Ask Trump and Biden About UFOs

Article by Jazz Shaw                               October 20, 2020                                     (hotair.com)

• On October 22nd, NBC’s Kristen Welker muted the microphones and scrapped the foreign policy focus of the debate to again pour over the pandemic, racial inequity and police reform. But when will a moderator bring up the topic of UFOs, now that the Pentagon has created a UAP Task Force. Would either Donald Trump or Joe Biden release government information on UFO incursions into our air space?

• An article on Newsweek.com (see here) asked “is it really unrealistic that the topic of UFOs could surface at the next presidential debate?” Would Weller set aside her anti-Trump agenda long enough to field a topic like UFOs? No. There are still too many people in mainstream media who are afraid that broaching the subject would make them appear unserious. or even unhinged. Welker has never publicly touched on the topic.

• But that doesn’t mean that it’s not worth asking about or somehow not a valid point of debate. The Newsweek article shows how far the UFO topic has migrated from the realm of paranormal research into the mainstream media. Tucker Carlson hits the subject regularly on Fox News. Both Jake Tapper and Michael Smerconish have done serious segments about UAP incursions on CNN. The New York Times and the Washington Post have both done multiple articles covering these strange craft without making jokes about it.

• President Trump has been asked multiple times about UFOs. He’s never given us an answer beyond saying that he would “check into it”. But at least he hasn’t brushed it off entirely. But we’ve yet to hear anything from Joe Biden on the topic. Medium.com writer Bryce Zabel published a UFO briefing memo (see here) for Joe Biden earlier this year, although there’s nothing to indicate that Uncle Joe looked it over.

• One reporter in New Hampshire kept asking every Democratic presidential candidate during the primaries about their position on UFOs, but somehow never got around to Joe Biden. So we really don’t know if Biden HAS any position at all. If he does wind up winning the election, he really needs to get up to speed. According to former Senator Harry Reid, there is a ton more UFO evidence that the public hasn’t seen, and that UFOs have even shut down some of our nuclear weapons facilities in the past.

• On the other hand, what if President Trump dropped a truth bomb in the run up to the election? Wouldn’t that be a totally ‘2020’ thing to happen right about now?

 

                    NBC’s Kristen Welker

We’ve already learned some of what we should expect from the final presidential debate this week. For

        Fox News’ Tucker Carlson

one thing, we know that the candidates’ microphones are going to be muted at times, possibly to avoid any “spicey” encounters. We’ve also heard that the original, scheduled focus of the debate, foreign policy, has been essentially scrapped by Kristen Welker. She will instead go back to the same list of topics that were dealt with last time, such as the pandemic, racial inequity, police reform, etc. But there’s one subject missing from the list. When will a debate moderator ask the candidates about the Pentagon’s UAP Task Force and whether or not they plan to release government information on UFO incursions into our air space? If you think it’s just me and the ufology enthusiasts asking about this, think again. The question popped up this week at Newsweek.

                  CNN’s Jake Tapper

“2020 has been a shocking year, to say the least, so is it really unrealistic that the topic of UFOs could

        Fmr. Nevada Senator Harry Reid

surface at the next presidential debate? Believe it or not, some Americans want to see President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden address the topic of national security in a totally new way on Thursday night.

Bryce Zabel, writer and producer of NBC’s Dark Skies, published a Medium article on Monday that questions if debate moderator and NBC reporter Kristen Welker could bring up the topic of UFOs during the final presidential debate before the 2020 election.”

Zabel makes many good points as usual, but then again, UFOs are sort of his beat. So do I think that Welker will set aside her anti-Trump agenda long enough to field a topic like this? No. I would say the chances are basically zero. There are still too many people in mainstream media who are afraid that broaching the subject would make them appear unserious or even unhinged. I was doing some searching this afternoon and couldn’t locate a single instance where Welker has even touched on the topic.

Once Upon a Time, Betty and Barney Hill Told a Story That Was Out of This World

by Ray Duckler            March 17, 2018              (concordmonitor.com)


• This article recounts the alien abduction case of Betty and Barney Hill (pictured above) in 1961. Betty was a white college graduate and a social worker, and her black husband, Barney, was an honored member of the United States Commission on Civil Rights. The couple were driving from Canada back home to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, when they encountered the UFO.

• As Betty and Barney Hill drove south on Route 3 through the White Mountain National Forest, they reached Indian Head Resort where the encounter first occurred. Today, a green historical marker near Indian Head Resort reads: “On the night of September 19-20, 1961, Portsmouth, NH couple Betty and Barney Hill experienced a close encounter with an unidentified flying object and two hours of ‘lost time’ while driving south on Route 3 near Lincoln. They filed an official Air Force Project Blue Book report of a brightly-lit cigar-shaped craft the next day, but were not public with their story until it was leaked in the Boston Traveler in 1965.”

• Between the Indian Hill Resort and Lincoln NH, Barney noticed cigar-shaped UFO hovering above the tree-line. He stopped and got out to take a look. Through his binoculars he could see humanoid beings in the UFO’s windows looking back at him. Barney immediately ran back to the car yelling at Betty that they had to leave. Their car began to vibrate and they both felt a tingling sensation. This is when they lost all memory, which was later regained through hypnosis. They recalled that by the time they had driven past Lincoln and were almost to Thornton NH, a group of aliens blocked their car on Route 3 and took the couple aboard the UFO craft.

• Barney described the beings as having spindly legs, a bulky torso, cat-like eyes, and they wore shiny black uniforms. Betty recalled throwing a punch or a kick, which might explain why her dress was torn. She said they tried to probe her naval but it hurt so much that they stopped. They were examined by the alien beings on board the UFO for two hours.

• The next thing that Betty and Barney Hill knew, they were again driving on Route 3, thirty miles south of Thornton near Ashland. By sunrise, they reached their home in Portsmouth. They reported their UFO sighting to the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena. Continuing to suffer from severe anxiety, Barney went to see Boston psychiatrist, Dr. Benjamin Simon. Dr. Simon hypnotized Barney and learned that his anxiety was caused by his belief that he and his wife had been abducted by aliens. Betty’s description of the event, also made under hypnosis, matched up closely with Barney’s.

• In 1965, a Boston journalist got a tip on the encounter and ran with the story, although the Hills declined requests for an interview. The Hills took refuge from the ensuing media storm at Betty’s mother’s house in Kingston NH near the Massachusetts border. Barney died in 1969 at age 46 from a brain aneurysm. A book and a movie were eventually made based on the UFO abduction. Betty recovered from a brain tumor, but died in 2004 from lung cancer at age 85.

 

Leon Noel moved carefully toward the row of twisted, sagging apple trees near the Interstate 93 overpass in Lincoln, each step swallowed by two feet of snow.

He pointed with a sweeping motion across the horizon. “There,” he said. “That’s them.”

The trees had been zapped by radiation emitted from an alien craft in 1961. At least that’s what Noel had always told his children and then his grandchildren. “They thought it was gospel,” Noel said.

That was a family joke. The part about Barney Hill squinting through binoculars and seeing humanoids above this same field, peering from windows like passengers on a plane, was not.

Neither was the part about Hill making a mad dash back to his car on Route 3, screaming in terror to his wife, Betty Hill, that the couple had to leave, fast, or risk capture.

Or the piece about the Hills being taken aboard the craft somewhere near Thornton, then losing all memory for two hours, then arriving at home in Portsmouth as the sun rose and their thoughts were unchained, allowing them to focus, at least partially, on what had happened.

It occurred during a six-hour stretch, beginning near midnight on Sept. 19, 1961, if you believe in that sort of thing.

And don’t take my word for it.

Look it up.

“Who knows?” Noel said. “I don’t. All I know is something happened.”

                      Betty Hill in 2003

Noel drives the steam locomotive at Clark’s Trading Post. He’s lived in Lincoln for nearly 50 years.
His hands and smile are gigantic, and his silver hair rises from his head and shoots in different directions, sort of like that craft that Barney and Betty Hill insisted they saw that night 57 years ago.

The yarn is part of the town’s landscape, much like those funny-looking apple trees.
As Noel worked his way through the high snow, a 12-year veteran of the Lincoln Police Department pulled over to see what was happening. He declined to give his name.

“I have more than a passing familiarity with what happened,” the officer said. “But that doesn’t mean I’m a believer.”

What about you?


An alien concept

The Hills lived in Portsmouth and were just passing through on their way home from Canada. A mixed marriage before those unions were fully accepted, Barney, an African American, died in 1969 from a brain aneurysm at age 46, and Betty, who was white, passed in 2004 from lung cancer at 85.

And yet, like Noel and that steam locomotive, they’re forever connected to the Lincoln region. As Noel says, “It was a big thing. My aunt lived here and she was right here, so it was a big thing to talk about. But nothing ever came of it because …”

Noel’s voice trailed off, then he laughed, as though his mind had hit that universal stop sign we all approach. Look one way, and your mind tells you it’s not true.

Look the other way, however, and your mind asks, “Why not?”

“There is something out there,” Noel says. “For the billions of stars that you look out at with the naked eye at night, we can’t be the only flea on the dog.”

If what Betty and Barney – the most famous couple with those names since the Flintstones – claimed was true, the 1969 moon landing would be transformed into a walk in the park. But no matter what you believe, the story was out of this world once the media got a hold of it four years after the incident.

A zany-sounding episode, sure, but whiffs of legitimacy – including government scrutiny and hypnosis by a respected Boston physician – followed this like a comet’s tail. In fact, even the state added some credibility, planting one of those green historical markers near Indian Head Resort, right there on Route 3, to celebrate the 50th anniversary in 2011.

It reads: “On the night of September 19-20, 1961, Portsmouth, NH couple Betty and Barney Hill experienced a close encounter with an unidentified flying object and two hours of ‘lost time’ while driving south on Route 3 near Lincoln. They filed an official Air Force Project Blue Book report of a brightly-lit cigar-shaped craft the next day, but were not public with their story until it was leaked in the Boston Traveler in 1965.”

Then come the words that push you to Google: “This was the first widely-reported UFO abduction report in the United States.”

Granite Staters Talk About UFO Sightings

by Jennifer Crompton          March 8, 2018          (wmur.com)

• Retired Navy Commander, David Fravor, one of four F-18 Navy pilots who witnessed the now infamous “tic-tac” shaped UFO off of the coast of San Diego in 2004, now lives in New Hampshire.

• Favor describes the encounter: Looking from his jet to the ocean’s surface below, “there’s this blob of white water that has shape, like a 737… so there’s something like a seamount that’s under the water.” A second “tic-tac” shaped UFO is seen (and recorded) hovering about 50 feet above the water. “…we’re descending, and [the UFO] starts to mirror us, and it’s coming up, so I’m, like, ‘Alright, that’s pretty wild!'”

• Favor said that all four airmen were “weirded out” and not taken seriously when they returned to their Navy carrier. Favor believes that what they saw was not from this world. “Honestly, I don’t think we have the technology.”

• Fravor says that humanity could benefit by taking the UFO issue seriously. “Let’s just say you figure out how this thing works, and it has some revolutionary power source that we have not thought of… It doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.”

• See 2:35 minute video of David Fravor below.

• As many as 10 UFO sightings per month are reported to the National UFO Reporting Center in New Hampshire, and are investigated by the Mutual UFO Network, a civilian organization that has chapters in every state. “It’s usually aircraft at high altitude or aircraft lights on approach. And then there are also aircraft that the United States don’t want us to know about,” says former MUFON investigator Mark Podell.

 

WINDHAM, N.H. —
A decorated retired fighter pilot now living in New Hampshire is telling his tale of seeing something strange in the sky years ago.

Retired Navy Cmdr. David Fravor served in the Navy for 24 years, 18 of them as a pilot. Although he has a lot of experience in the air, there’s one story about which he’s asked most often.

During a routine exercise in 2004, Fravor’s plane and another were redirected by their air defense ship to an area off the coast of southern California to check out something that was picked up on radar.

“And there’s this blob of white water that has shape, like a 737, that’s pointing this way, so there’s something like a seamount that’s under the water,” Fravor said.

He said that another unidentified object, described as the shape of a Tic-Tac hovering about 50 feet above the water, was recorded by a plane’s camera.

“So as we get to about here, about 12 o’clock, we’re descending, and it starts to mirror us, and it’s coming up, so I’m, like, ‘Alright, that’s pretty wild!'” Fravor said.

He said the unidentified flying object interacted with his Super Hornet before flying off.
He described all four airmen as “weirded out” and not taken seriously when they returned to their carrier. Fravor said he believes that what they saw was not from this world.

“Honestly, I don’t think we have the technology,” he said.
