UFO's and the US Government

Recommended Posts

The following January, the C.I.A. secretly convened an advisory group of experts, led by Howard P. Robertson, a mathematical physicist from Caltech. The “Robertson panel” determined not that we were being visited by U.F.O.s but that we were being inundated with too many U.F.O. reports. This was a real problem: if notices of genuine incursions over U.S. territory could be lost in a maelstrom of kooky hallucination, there could be grave consequences for national security—for instance, Soviet spy planes could operate with impunity. The Cold War made it crucial that the U.S. government be perceived to have full control over its airspace.

To stem the flood of reports, the panel recommended that “the national security agencies take immediate steps to strip the Unidentified Flying Objects of the special status they have been given and the aura of mystery they have unfortunately acquired.” It also suggested that civilian U.F.O. groups be infiltrated and monitored, and enlisted the media in the debunking effort. The campaign culminated in a 1966 TV special, “UFO: Friend, Foe or Fantasy?,” in which the CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite patiently consigned U.F.O.s to the oblivion of the third category.

In the summer of 2018, Elizondo’s successor brandished Kean’s article to make this case to members of Congress. According to the former Pentagon official, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee inserted language into the classified annex of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act, passed in August of 2018, that obligated the Pentagon to continue the investigations. “The U.A.P. issue is being taken very seriously now even compared to where it was two or three years ago,” the former Pentagon official said.

Last summer, David Norquist, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, announced the formal existence of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force. The 2021 Intelligence Authorization Act, signed this past December, stipulated that the government had a hundred and eighty days to gather and analyze data from disparate agencies. Its report is expected in June. In a recent interview with Fox News, John Ratcliffe, the former director of National Intelligence, emphasized that the issue was no longer to be taken lightly. “When we talk about sightings,” he said, “we are talking about objects that have been seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery, that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain, movements that are hard to replicate, that we don’t have the technology for, or are travelling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom.”

The above are a few teaser quotes from the linked long-form article.

It's long (obviously), but, IMO, a very interesting dive into the US Government's involvement with investigating UFO's, from 1947 to the present day.

No question in my mind, they have been covering things up extensively for at least the past 60 years - or more.

We have begun to see a change in candor and attitude as of late, it remains to be seen if this will continue.

Aliens are fun to think about, especially if they're wearing stylish hats. They're out there, far out there, but not here. Also, you think the Mole People would be happy about aliens just dancing around our skies? It would be an all out sexy war.

Anytime this government lies to The People, it’s a crime against humanity.

This lie is designed to hide the existence of a crime. What that crime is, we can speculate, but my guess is, it will take the Owner of the Garden to resolve in our favor.

The return of the “Days of Noah” was an analogy made by Jesus Christ, which suggests that the nature of the crime is the illegal use of humanity for a purpose, which we were not intended, involving our reproduction.

Regardless of our individual belief system, it’s an interesting argument, which cannot be dismissed, given the curious lies we are looking at.

Our leadership invited a corruption that must now be destroyed by a Higher Power ...

Before it’s over, there will be too many calamities to count. Instead of the plagas of Egypt, there will be as many as needed.

“Terror Non-Firma” is the command now given and written upon the face of the entire Earth.

Let the lying tongues in Washington try to govern an apocalypse nunc. 

The Founder of our DNA approaches, to take back what is rightfully His.
