The UFO Phenomenon

Row erupts among US politicians over sinking of UFO disclosure bill

The bill, which was passed by the Senate earlier this year, has now been opposed by several House Republicans.
Known as the Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) Disclosure Act of 2023, the bill would require every government office to release to the public any and all records concerning unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP) and extraterrestrial life (or 'non-human intelligence').

Championed by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, among others, it was hailed as a major step toward full UFO disclosure and a greater level of transparency on the issue than ever before.

While the bill was successfully passed by the Senate back in July, it has since been unexpectedly blocked by a number of House Republicans for reasons that continue to remain unclear.

This has, unsurprisingly, prompted some heated remarks from other members of Congress.

Schumer, in particular, took to the floor on Monday to slam opponents of the bill.
"House Republicans are also attempting to kill another commonsense, bipartisan measure passed by the Senate, which I was proud to cosponsor... to increase transparency around what the government does and does not know about unidentified aerial phenomena," he said.

"Unidentified Aerial Phenomena has generated intense curiosity from many Americans, and the risk for confusion and misinformation is high if the government is not willing to be transparent."

Speaking on the The Joe Rogan Experience podcast recently, whistleblower David Grusch also had something to say about the decision to oppose the bill.

"Why are you blocking the bill ?" he said. "And it's not going to cost much, a couple [of] million a year max, you know, for the panel, which is like vaporware in U.S. government speak, right ?"

"If there's nothing to see here, why are Mike Rogers and Mike Turner in the House blocking this bill that is, in my opinion, the most important legislation for transparency in American history?"

"And it's not going to cost much, a couple [of] million a year max, you know, for the panel, which is like vaporware in U.S. government speak, right ?"" Well, no, it is $20M for 2024 alone, Michaelangelo.  We could instead plant 20 millions $1 trees, or feed 20 million $1 hot dogs to the people walking across our virtual southern border.

Glad someone is blocking it, D or R doesn't matter. We waste money on special interest garbage way too much. Either the Government already knows and is not telling us or there is nothing to tell. Either way this gives us nothing more then dead end reports that never amount to anything.

It's not a left right issue it's that the author of the article just made it look like that. There are those on both sides of the isle that doesn't want the public to know. Simply because they are involved with the dark ones. (beholden to)!

An amazingly shortsighted and self centered comment. It's in EVERYONE'S interest to know about this technology and how it could transform the planet for PEACE and prosperity for ALL humankind instead of always being in the hands of the military industrial complex. Yeah it's real and anyone who thinks otherwise has their head up their...

Republicans certainly have a lot of hands in the military industrial complex which stands to profit from such technologies. However Trump may be willing to spill the beans and is just another reason why they are trying to keep him out of the picture.

The cost is: 0.00031746031746032% of the US budget. Just putting it in perspective. Personally I think it is a waste but for a different reason.
