Trump Launches Space Command: Will They Fight Aliens And UFOs?

Article by Arthur Villasanta                      August 30, 2019                      (ibtimes.com)

• On August 29th, President Trump announced the reactivation of the United States Space Command at a White House ceremony. But the new command of the US Armed Forces won’t be fighting invading aliens or UFOs. The US Space Command is designed to meet the threat presented to U.S. military satellites by the increasingly sophisticated anti-satellite capabilities of Russia and China. Said President Trump, “Those who wish to harm the United States, to seek to challenge us on the ultimate high ground of space, it’s going to be a whole different ballgame.”

• The US Space Command was originally established in 1985 to coordinate the use of outer space by the United States Armed Forces, but was stood down in 2002. In 2018, the Department of Defense (DoD) announced the US Space Command would be reestablished as the eleventh unified combatant command under the DoD, similar in status to US Special Operations Command, US Cyber Command, US Pacific Command and US Central Command.

• The 2019 National Defense Authorization Act, signed into law in 2018, directed the reestablishment of the US Space Command under the US Strategic Command. But in December 2018, President Trump directed that the US Space Command be re-established as a full ‘unified combatant command’ with full responsibilities for fighting wars in space. It is seen as a predecessor to Trump’s US Space Force, which will ultimately become the sixth military service in the armed forces, similar to the US Army and US Navy.

• US Air Force General John W. Raymond is the current Commander of the Air Force Space Command, and he will concurrently command the US Space Command as well. Said General Raymond, “We no longer have the luxury of treating space superiority as a given. There is a growing threat. The scope, scale and complexity is concerning.” General Raymond listed the threats that the US Space Command will deal with, including jamming of GPS communication satellites, directed energy weapons, and ground to satellite missiles which China demonstrated in 2007.

 

The defunct United States Space Command (USSPACECOM) was reactivated as a unified combatant command (UCC) of the Department of Defense (DoD) in ceremonies presided over by President Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday.

USSPACECOM becomes the 11th UCC of the United States Armed Forces. This designation makes it similar in stature to other UCCs such as U.S. Special Operations Command, U.S. Cyber Command, U.S. Pacific Command and U.S. Central Command.

Gen. John W. Raymond, USAF, is Commander of USSPACECOM. He is also the concurrent Commander of Air Force Space Command, which is a separate command from USSPACECOM.

USSPACECOM was originally established in 1985 to coordinate the use of outer space by the United States Armed Forces but was stood down in 2002. In 2018, DoD announced USSPACECOM would be reestablished as a unified combatant command.

“We no longer have the luxury of treating space superiority as a given,” said Gen. Raymond on Thursday.
“There is a growing threat. The scope, scale and complexity is concerning.”

George Bush Sr Took UFO Secrets To the Grave – Because ‘Americans Couldn’t Handle the Truth’, Lobbyist Claims

by Emma Parry                    December 18, 2018                  (thescottishsun.co.uk)

• Steve Bassett (pictured above left), an American UFO lobbyist, told the (Scottish) Sun Online that the 41st US President, George Herbert Walker Bush (pictured above right), knew the truth about the extraterrestrial presence on and around the Earth, and could have ended the UFO cover-up. Bush was a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and had been briefed daily by CIA agents while in the White House. Bush-41 would have been the “ideal” president to disclose the truth about UFOs as he was so well informed. But he kept all his UFO knowledge a secret right up until he died last month at age 94 at his home in Houston, Texas.

• According to Bassett, Bush-41 “…would have been the ideal ‘Disclosure’ President… The Cold War was over and the door was now open to end a very expensive and complex truth embargo.” “[I]t is my view the military/intelligence complex would have been quite comfortable with ‘Disclosure’ taking place during a second term of President George H. W. Bush.”

• Former US President Jimmy Carter pledged that he would disclose to US citizens what the government knew about UFOs if elected after witnessing a strange light while governor of Georgia in 1969. But while director of the CIA, Bush is said to have blocked President Carter’s attempts to obtain UFO information during a briefing on November 19, 1976. Bush told the president-elect he didn’t have the need to know but if he wanted information he should ask the Congressional Research Service (CRS) to prepare a briefing for the new administration. Bassett thinks Bush rebuffed Carter because he knew some UFOs were extra-terrestrial in origin. “Carter fired him shortly thereafter,” says Bassett. “One might ask, ‘If there was no truth to the extra-terrestrial hypothesis, why would Bush disrespect a presidential request?”

• Bassett also claims that “…Bush was quite knowledgeable about the history of the extra-terrestrial presence to the extent he required. Did that include the July 1947 Roswell events? Almost certainly yes.”

• While campaigning with his son Jeb Bush in the 1980s, Bush-41 was asked about UFOs by a journalist. He replied, “Americans can’t handle the truth.” During a presidential rally trip to Rogers, Arkansas, in 1988, Bush was asked: “Will you tell the people the truth about UFOs?”  Bush replied: “I know some. I know a fair amount.” Later, Bush included in a speech: “We will travel to neighboring stars, to new worlds, to discover the unknown.”

 

The 41st President of the United States, who died last month aged 94, was a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and was briefed daily by spooks while in the White House.

And according to UFO researchers he would have been the “ideal” president to disclose the truth about UFOs as he was so well informed.

But he kept all his UFO knowledge a secret right up until he died at his home in Houston, Texas.

Steve Bassett, an American UFO lobbyist, told Sun Online Bush knew the truth about extra terrestrial life and could have ended the UFO cover-up.

He said: “The consensus among researchers is George H. W. Bush would have been briefed on the extra-terrestrial presence to whatever extent he so desired.

“There is no clear evidence George H. W. Bush wanted ‘Disclosure’. That said, it is my view the military/intelligence complex would have been quite comfortable with ‘Disclosure’ taking place during a second term of President George H. W. Bush.

“He would have been the ideal ‘Disclosure’ President from their perspective. The Cold War was over and the door was now open to end a very expensive and complex truth embargo.”

While director of the CIA, Bush is said to have even blocked former president Jimmy Carter’s attempts to obtain UFO information during an alleged briefing on November 19, 1976.

Bush told the president-elect he didn’t have the need to know but if he wanted information he should ask the Congressional Research Service (CRS) to prepare a briefing for the new administration.

Carter had pledged he would disclose to US citizens what the government knew about UFOs if elected after witnessing a strange light while governor of Georgia in 1969.

Bassett, the executive director of UFO campaign group Paradigm Research Group, thinks Bush rebuffed Carter as he knew some UFOs were extra-terrestrial in origin.

He said: “We do know the newly elected President Carter approached CIA Director Bush regarding a study the White House wished to initiate regarding the extra-terrestrial issue.

“Bush declined to cooperate and referred him to another agency. This may have guaranteed he would not be able to stay on as CIA Director – or not.

“Carter fired him shortly thereafter. One might ask, ‘If there was no truth to the extra-terrestrial hypothesis, why would Bush disrespect a presidential request?'”

Obama White House denied access to UFO files

Obama Podesta in discussion - access deniedJohn Podesta’s candid admission on Feb 13, his last day as Counselor to President Obama, that his biggest failure was to secure disclosure of UFO files raises many questions. The dominant response by the mainstream media has been to ignore questions of who, what, why a senior White House advisor was denied access to UFO files, and focus instead on Podesta’s long history of a fascination with the X-Files TV series. The Washington Post, UPI, The Hill, etc., have all made Podesta’s admission on Twitter a personal issue about his X-Files fascination, rather a serious policy issue concerning information denied to the White House.

For those that missed it, here’s what Podesta said on Friday:

 my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files.

The Washington Post’s Al Kamen wrote in response:

Podesta was a major fan of the “X-Files” television show. Our colleague Karen Tumulty asked him in 2007 about the FOIA jam at the library, and Podesta, through a spokesman, replied: “The truth is out there.” That’s the show’s tag­ line.

Amy Connolly of UPI writes: “In a nod to the long-running television show The X-Files, Podesta, who has had a longtime fascination with all things extraterrestrial, tweeted using hashtag #thetruthisstilloutthere.”

The Hill’s Julian Hattem writes:

John Podesta’s biggest regret on leaving the White House is not proving Fox Mulder right… The humorous tweet about his time in office came in a list of his top 10 moments over the last year,

Here are just a few who, what, why questions the above writers didn’t bother asking.

Podesta’s admission came on his White House Twitter feed while he was discussing initiatives related to his official responsibility of overseeing climate change and energy policy for the White House. Did Podesta attempt to gain access to classified UFO files possessed by one or more government entities due to its relevance to his official duties?

His admission suggests that UFO information has relevance to climate change and/or energy policy. If so, does that mean that UFOs are indeed interplanetary spacecraft that use energy sources far more advanced than anything offered by the fossil fuel industry?

If UFO information has relevance to energy policy, then why wasn’t Podesta able to gain access despite having all the power of the White House behind him? What government entity can deny access to information requested by a senior advisor to a sitting President in the performance of his official duties?

Thankfully, there are some in mainstream media willing to explore such questions. CNET writer Chris Matyszczyk asks:

Is it possible that both the president and Podesta know more than they (are allowed to) let on? If your answer is yes, that leaves us to speculate on why they’re not revealing it. Is it because we’d be frightened? Or is it because our belief systems would become so displaced that what remains of our social cohesion would dissolve?

These are just a few of the more obvious who, what, why questions raised by Podesta’s admission. Unfortunately, much of the mainstream media isn’t asking them because it is treating his admission as wry X-Files humor. We are basically being told that the Twitter revelation of a senior White House advisor is not something to take seriously.

Podesta’s involvement in a number of earlier attempts to learn the truth about classified UFO files points to a different conclusion. He was very serious. As a counselor to President Obama, with all the power that position conveys, he was still unable to pierce the veil of secrecy surrounding classified UFO files.

Podesta’s earlier involvement in a failed attempt by the Clinton administration to gain access to classified UFO files is well documented. FOIA documents gained by Canadian UFO researcher Grant Cameron detail a timeline involving President Clinton and Hillary Clinton seeking information from deceased billionaire Laurence Rockefeller on the topic. Strategies were developed for how the Clinton White House could gain access.

Podesta was involved in one of these strategies. The passage of Executive Order 12958 aimed at streamlining declassification of thousands of national security files, and involving the White House in the process. The goal was to shake loose some of the classified files hidden away in the national security archives of various U.S. government entities and corporate contractors and see if any could cast light on the UFO phenomenon. Podesta became Chief of Staff to Clinton, yet despite all the power available to him then, and to the President himself, access to UFO files was denied.

If a sitting President and his most senior advisors can’t access UFO related information relevant to policies being developed, then who is the real power behind the throne? Surely that’s a question worth a serious investigation by the Fourth Estate.
