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?

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.

In the Early 1950s, D.C. Was Obsessed With UFOs

Listen to “E193 In the Early 1950s, D.C. Was Obsessed With UFOs” on Spreaker.

Article by Sianna Boschetti                       December 9, 2019                           (dcist.com)

• On Saturday, July 19, 1952, Washington National Airport radar picked up a group of UFOs flying over Washington, D.C. That evening the UFOs remained, hovering over the capitol. “There was an attempted intercept,” says Dr. Kevin Randle, ufologist and author of the book: Invasion Washington: UFOs Over the Capitol. “But the (fighter) planes got there and everything was gone.”

• One week later, on Saturday, July 26th, the same crew operating the radar at Washington National Airport saw the same blips on their screen. The crew called for another fighter plane interception. Said Randle, “It seemed that every time the fighters showed up, all the uncorrelated blips disappeared from the radar. In other words, all the UFOs went away. When the fighters returned to base, the blips came back.”

• The incidents over D.C. were turned over to the Air Force’s ‘Project Blue Book’ investigation. Project Blue Book is currently commemorating the 50th anniversary of the investigation’s end in 1969 with an exhibit of declassified documents in the National Archives.

• According to Rebecca Charbonneau of the University of Cambridge (in Cambridge, England), and an ‘expert’ on the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, also known as SETI, Project Blue Book was more than an attempt to follow up on UFO sightings. With the Cold War looming, Project Blue Book was a way to see if these UFOs could actually be technologically advanced Soviet aircraft. In the early 1950s, tensions with the Soviet Union were increasing and American surveillance technology was far less effective than today.

• Statistics supplied by the National Archives list 12,618 UFO sightings investigated by Project Blue Book between 1947 and 1969. All except 700 of those cases were readily “identified”. According to the Archives, Project Blue Book arrived at three major conclusions: 1) none of the UFO sightings posed a threat to US national security; 2) the technology present in all UFO sightings did not suggest otherworldly advancements to aircraft technology of the day; and 3) there was no evidence suggesting that the UFOs were from outer space.

• By January 1953, Harvard University astronomer and prominent UFO debunker, Dr. Donald Menzel, announce the CIA’s findings regarding the UFOs seen over D.C. and recorded on radar the previous July. The official explanation was temperature inversions, which occur when a layer of hot air moves over a layer of cool air and bends radar beams. Says Randle, the “so-called experts” came in and told the National Airport radar crew ‘what they really saw’.

• Regardless, Washington, D.C. was in the throes of UFO excitement. The Washington Post regularly reported updates on the sightings. “All’s Quiet Along the Potomac On the Flying Saucer Front,” read one headline in late July of 1952. They reported that a girl in Northwest D.C. saw a saucer in August. The American University student paper reported sightings over their campus in October.

• But one Vienna, Virginia resident wondered what all of the “whoop-de-doo” was about. In a Washington Post letter to the editor on August 15, 1952, he wrote: “I don’t see anything astounding about (flying saucers) at all. The air and the sky around us are full of wonders much more spectacular than saucers.”

[Editor’s Note]   Where do I begin? These UFOs flew over Washington DC on two consecutive weekends, and hovered over the city for everyone to see. When fighter planes got near them, they disappeared from radar, and came back when they left. But all of this is “explained” as layers of air that can “bend radar beams” by the CIA and a Harvard astronomer who never met a UFO that he couldn’t debunk. Then a ‘SETI expert’ from Cambridge University, another deep state institution, defends Project Bluebook by pointing out that the Air Force was more interested in monitoring Soviet technology than actually explaining UFOs. What could be more important than a national security threat? Except that Project Bluebook’s conclusion was that these D.C. UFOs posed no threat to national security.

Furthermore, according to Project Bluebook, UFO technology across the board was no more advanced than the ordinary aircraft technology of the day and there was no evidence suggesting that the UFOs were from outer space. If you believe this, then you need to have your head examined. This is clearly a government cover-up straight out of the Robertson Panel Report of January 1953, and the Condon Report of 1968.

In reality, the CIA and the Air Force didn’t want the public to know that the UFOs buzzing Washington, D.C. were actually German Nazi-built spacecraft using extraterrestrial technology that was meant to coerce the US government into covertly joining with them and their Draco Reptilian allies, which the military industrial complex did. This began the deep state elite’s secret space program, which has developed over the past seventy years beyond anyone’s imagination. When the deep state is defeated by the higher consciousness of a (still mind-controlled) human population, all of these advanced technologies, including aerospace, medical, and food production technology, will become available to the planet.

 

On Saturday, July 19, 1952, the crew at Washington National Airport saw something unusual, according to the next day’s national headlines.
“Saucers Swarm Over Capitol,” read the front page of the Cedar Rapids Gazette. That headline, among many others that day, expressed an anxious curiosity as to why a group of unidentified flying objects spent their Saturday night hovering over D.C. just five years after the now-legendary incident in Roswell, New Mexico.

While other sightings may have eyewitness testimony or indirect evidence of the objects moving through our world, these UFOs spotted at National Airport were undeniably present on a radar.

It’s the reaction to the blips on the radar screen that really sets D.C.’s alleged alien incident apart, says Dr. Kevin Randle, a prominent ufologist and author of Invasion Washington: UFOs Over the Capitol. At one point, Randle says, fighter planes tried to head out to the UFOs’ locations.

“There was an attempted intercept,” he says. “But the planes got there and everything was gone.”

One week later, on Saturday, July 26, the same crew was working at the radar facility, Randle says. This time around, though, they were prepared for the potential of seeing UFOs. Sure enough, the blips reappeared on the radar screen, and the crew called for another interception.

“It seemed that every time the fighters showed up, all the uncorrelated blips disappeared from the radar. In other words, all the UFOs went away,” Randle says. “When the fighters returned to base, the blips came back.”

The incidents over D.C. was one of a number of UFO sightings across the country that the Air Force investigated via Project Blue Book, a study that began five years prior in Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. A code name for the country’s most well-known investigation into UFOs, it eventually became a household name for alien enthusiasts.

The investigation staff tracked sightings and wrote summaries of reports from around the country, according to the National Archives. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the investigation’s end, declassified documents from Project Blue Book are now on display in the East Rotunda Gallery of the National Archives.

Project Blue Book was a systematic attempt to follow up on UFO sightings, says Rebecca Charbonneau, a Ph.D. candidate and Gates Cambridge scholar at the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge. She is an expert on the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, also known as SETI.

With the Cold War looming, the 1950s was a fascinating time for these sightings to have taken place, she says.

Trump Probably Hasn’t Been Told Anything About Area 51

Listen to “E41 7-26-19 Trump Probably Hasn’t Been Told Anything About Area 51” on Spreaker.

Article by Charles Creitz                      July 16, 2019                      (foxnews.com)

• Fox News’ commentator, Jesse Watters (pictured above with President Trump), pondered whether President Trump was aware of what goes on at the top secret military base known as ‘Area 51’. On the Fox News show “The Five”, Watters quipped, “I am surprised Trump has not slipped up about Area 51 yet… The man cannot keep a secret. I don’t even think they told him about Area 51.”

• Watters contends that if Trump is privy to knowledge about the base, ‘it is surprising he hasn’t told the public’. Watters noted that Trump is unusually open at campaign events. “He’ll just let it go at a rally,” Watters said. “But if he has kept that secret, I am very proud.”

• Area 51 is a government facility in the Nevada desert near Groom Lake, a salt flat located about 120 miles north of Las Vegas. The site was used during World War II as an aerial gunnery range for Army pilots. In the 1950’s it was converted to an Air Force test site for the U-2, F-117A, A-12 and TACIT BLUE aircraft. In 2013, the CIA acknowledged the base’s existence. Today, Area 51 employees take an unmarked passenger plane from a Las Vegas airport to the classified base.

• A Facebook page is advertising a ‘March on Area 51’ on September 20th at 3 am. The Facebook creator believes “they can’t stop all of us.” Well over one million people have pledged to participate in the invasion.

• While it isn’t exactly known what the base is currently used for, Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews told The Washington Post that Area 51 is where, “we train American armed forces” and “is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force.” She discouraged civilians from visiting the area. “The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets,” McAndrews added.

 

Ahead of a Facebook-advertised “storming” of Area 51, Jesse Watters considered whether President Trump has been told about what goes on at the secretive military installation.

If Trump is privy to top-secret information about the base, which has long been a point of discussion for conspiracy theorists who believe the facility holds government secrets about aliens and UFOs, it is surprising he hasn’t told the public, Watters said on “The Five.”

“I am surprised Trump has not slipped up about Area 51 yet,” he joked.

“The man cannot keep a secret. I don’t even think they told him about Area 51.”

The “Watters’ World” host added Trump is often unusually open at campaign events — to a greater extent than past presidents.

“He’ll just let it go at a rally,” he said. “But if he has kept that secret, I am very proud.”

On Facebook, a page advertising the purported event went viral over the past week, as more than 1 million users responded they would go to the top-secret military installation on Sept. 20 at 3 a.m., with the creator writing “they can’t stop all of us.”
