link2024, May 30 - A UK Freedom of Information request has revealed the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) is currently researching how it will react to the so-called ‘black swan’ event that is discovering extraterrestrial life, including announcing the find to the public.

A black swan event is unpredictable and has wide-ranging consequences, but in hindsight, it appears to have been inevitable.

The report is investigating whether a plan already exists – none has ever been made public – what a plan would look like, and how the UK can be ‘on the front foot’ should such an astounding scientific discovery finally be made. It has been conducted for over six months and will be finalised in July, at which point a new government could receive it. An internal report will be presented to the DSIT Permanent Secretary setting out recommendations for an action plan including opportunities, challenges and areas of expertise. While a summary of the work states the primary focus of the report will be ‘the impact on the science landscape’, it will also consider the wider impact.

link2024, May 23 - Documented sighting of metallic spheres over Livermore Lawrence National Laboratory (LLNL) on April 30th 2019, referenced by Luna on today's DOE Hearing.

Today, at a U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Accountability hearing, Representative Anna Paulina Luna asked Department of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm about a specific UAP incursion that occurred at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on April 30th, 2019, in which metallic spheres were seen flying around. Video timestamped to when Luna asked this question: At approximately 10:30 AM, I was notified by the Central Alarm Station (CAS) about a possible drone sighting. The CAS Operator mentioned hearing escorts at the building 815 project discussing a drone in their vicinity at approximately 10:27 AM. I contacted the Security Escorts at building 815 in the Process Area. They both reported seeing a round silver drone flying around the Process Area. It would periodically stop and hover for several seconds, then continue flying. It headed north of their location, stopped and hovered again for several more seconds. The drone was reportedly in their area for several minutes before departing towards the southeast. The drone was flying at such a height and distance that its specific characteristics were impossible to identify. I contacted another individual who confirmed that no drone flights were scheduled for Site 300 that day. A team member was dispatched to sweep Corral Hollow Road, but no personnel were found in the area. Another team member drove to the area around building 836 and reported that it was clear. I continued to monitor the Process Area but did not spot the drone again. At 10:40 AM, the incident was reported to the relevant authorities. Further notifications were made to other team members.

link2024, May 21 - "Non-human intelligence exists. Non-human intelligence has been interacting with humanity. This interaction is not new and has been ongoing." - Karl Nell, retired Army Colonel.

Alex Klokus interviewed Colonel Karl Nell at SALT iConnections New York, where Knell discussed evidence of non-human intelligence on earth. He detailed the U.S. government's level of knowledge and its disclosure process. Knell says there's zero doubt non-human intelligent life has visited Earth and dives deep into what exactly that means for humans. Karl Nell is an active Pentagon official four (4) steps removed from the United States president. Currently works as an advisor to the Vice Chief of Staff in the Army Futures Command. The unit was only relatively recently created in 2018 and works with experimental prototypes for future combat systems. Col. Karl E. Nell is predicting that an updated version of the UAP Disclosure Act will be reintroduced in Congress this summer, with a goal of adding it to the NDAA by the end of the year. At his presentation at SALT, Col. Karl Nell specifically namedropped Paul Hellyer (former Minister of National Defence of Canada) and Haim Eshed (former Director of Space Programs for Israeli Ministry of Defense) as people in positions to know that should be taken seriously: Nell goes on to lay out the reasons the government is actively concealing knowledge of NHI from the public, it's mostly societal implications, he calls the government "reactionary" instead of "proactive" because they're unwilling to accept the reality of higher lifeforms interacting with us and aren't ready to create a coherent plan for the future of that reality.

Additionally, Rear Admiral Tim Gallaudet corroborates Karl Nell's statement on LinkedIn: "My colleague, retired Army Colonel Karl Nell, said with 100% certainty that the world is being visited by higher-level, non-human intelligence (NHI). I know he is correct with complete certainty." Nell told the world to look to a Canadian minister of defence and the founder of Israel's space program.

linkKey takeaways

The speaker, Karl Nell, believes that non-human intelligence exists and has been interacting with humanity. This is not a new phenomenon, and there are people within the government who are aware of it.

Evidence for this belief comes from key figures with high-level access to information, such as Paul Hellyer, Ham Eshed, Chris Mellon, Lou Elizondo, and David Grush. All of them have stated similar beliefs regarding the existence of non-human intelligence.

The government has not officially disclosed this information for six main reasons: national security, lack of a plan, potential societal disruption, potential non-public agreements, potential misdeeds and cover-ups, and basic organizational intransigence.

Despite these reasons, Karl Nell believes that disclosure should still occur for three reasons: people have a moral right to know, being proactive is better than being reactive, and societal advancement and global competitiveness could benefit from more people being aware of this topic.

Karl Nell warns of the possibility of "catastrophic disclosure," where the truth is forced out in a way that could cause societal upheaval. He suggests that the world could be in a state similar to the collapse of the Bronze Age, where civilizations failed due to stressors they couldn't handle.

The intentions of non-human intelligence are unknown. Karl Nell suggests that their intentions might be driven by the same Darwinian evolutionary process that governs life on Earth, making it naive to expect either complete altruism or malintent.

Karl Nell suggests that disclosure is not inevitable, given that previous cycles of interest in disclosure have come and gone. However, he hopes that recent legislative efforts, such as the Schumer Amendment, could lead to more progress in this area.

The phenomenon of non-human intelligence is a global issue, not just a U.S. issue. Therefore, it would be beneficial for nations to work collectively on this.

Karl Nell believes that humanity can pursue an understanding of the ultimate truth, which includes understanding non-human intelligence. This pursuit is part of our existence.

The speaker also indicates that there might be a race to reverse-engineer alien technology, as it could provide a strategic advantage to the nation that accomplishes it first. However, he also acknowledges the potential instability that could come with such a transition.

link2024, May 17—The deadline for copies is Sept. 30, the end of the federal fiscal year. Agencies have until Oct. 24 to review, identify, and organize their material.

The UAP Records Collection will consist of “copies of all Government, Government-provided, or Government-funded records relating to unidentified anomalous phenomena, technologies of unknown origin, and non-human intelligence” The 2024 National Defense Authorization Act (Public Law 118-31, Sections 1841-1843) requires NARA to establish the ‘‘Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Records Collection.” The law requires that by October 20, 2024, each federal agency review, identify, and organize each Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) record in its custody for disclosure to the public and transmission to the National Archives. The Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) Records Collection will consist of “copies of all Government, Government-provided, or Government-funded records relating to unidentified anomalous phenomena, technologies of unknown origin, and non-human intelligence (or equivalent subjects by any other name with the specific and sole exclusion of temporarily non-attributed objects).”

Agencies must identify all UAP records in any format, make digital copies of these records, and prepare them for transfer to NARA by the deadline established by the act. NARA will only accept the digital versions of UAP records. Publicly releasable copies of UAP records transferred to NARA will be made available online in the National Archives Catalog. NARA will provide an online finding aid that will be integrated with the Catalog. Agencies will continue to manage the source records in their custody according to the NARA-approved disposition schedule. Temporary records will eventually be destroyed. Permanent records will eventually be transferred to NARA, even if a copy has already been transmitted as part of the UAP collection.

link2023, April 17 - Tim Gallaudet, an oceanographer and former Naval rear admiral who served as the author of a March white paper about so-called "unidentified submerged objects" or USOs, told Fox News this week that he considers it both "scientifically valid" and critical to national security to study these phenomena.

Released by the newly-convened Sol Foundation, a think tank dedicated to studying what the military calls "unidentified anomalous phenomena" (UAPs), the 29-page report centers on a 2019 video taken aboard the Omaha off the coast of San Diego. The video, which was leaked to filmmaker Jeremy Corbell and verified by the Pentagon as a legit instance of Naval-recorded UAP in 2021, raises more questions than it answers — and in both his interview and the Sol Foundation report, Gallaudet suggests that the strange craft should be treated as a threat.

Extraterrestrial - originating, existing, or occurring outside the earth or its atmosphere

AARO found no evidence that any USG investigation, academic-sponsored research, or official review panel has confirmed that any sighting of a UAP represented extraterrestrial technology

Correct, there are no claims or evidence for extraterrestrial technology.

AARO found no empirical evidence for claims that the USG and private companies have been reverse-engineering extraterrestrial technology. Based on all information provided to date, AARO determined that claims involving specific people, known locations, technological tests, and documents allegedly involved in or related to the reverse-engineering of extraterrestrial technology are inaccurate. Additional claims will be addressed in Volume II.

Correct, there are no claims of reverse engineering for extraterrestrial technology.

AARO assesses that all of the named and described alleged hidden UAP reverse-engineering programs provided by interviewees either do not exist, are misidentified authentic, highly sensitive national security programs that are not related to extraterrestrial technology exploitation, or resolve to an unwarranted and disestablished program

Again, careful use of extraterrestrial term

AARO assesses that the inaccurate claim that the USG is reverse-engineering extraterrestrial technology and is hiding it from Congress is, in large part, the result of circular reporting from a group of individuals who believe this to be the case, despite the lack of any evidence.

Again, careful use of extraterrestrial term

AARO assesses that UAP sightings, reports of these sightings to USG organizations, and claims that some UAP constitute extraterrestrial craft and that the USG has secured and is experimenting with extraterrestrial technology have been influenced by a range of cultural, political, and technological factors.

Again, careful use of extraterrestrial term

Several factors—domestic and international—most likely influenced sightings, reports, and some individuals' belief that there is sufficient proof that some UAP represent extraterrestrial technology.

Again, careful use of extraterrestrial terms and the word "some."

AARO assesses that some portion of sightings since the 1940s have represented misidentification of never-before-seen experimental and operational space, rocket, and air systems, including stealth technologies and the proliferation of drone platforms

Again, the use of the word "some."

linkBackground

According to Grusch (and many other sources), the Atomic Energy Act was used to classify UAP back in the day. They used this legal definition to shove UAPs in there conveniently:

Such material is capable of releasing substantial quantities of atomic energy. The president can't legally declassify or disclose anything that falls under that act:

https://www.americanbar.org/news/abanews/aba-news-archives/2022/10/fact-check-presidential-authority/

Some secrets, such as information related to nuclear weapons, are handled separately under a specific statutory scheme that Congress has adopted under the Atomic Energy Act. The president cannot automatically declassify those secrets alone and must, by law, consult extensively with executive branch agencies.

This is why Schumer's UAPDA was required to give the president that legal right. The UAPDA even called out The Atomic Energy Act as an obstacle (Before they gutted it)

Legislation is necessary because credible evidence and testimony indicate that Federal Government unidentified anomalous phenomena records exist that have not been declassified or subject to mandatory declassification review as set forth in Executive Order 13526 (50 U.S.C. 3161 note; relating to classified national security information) due in part to exemptions under the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (42 U.S.C. 2011 et seq.) It also includes an over-broad interpretation of ‘‘trans-classified foreign nuclear information,’’ which is also exempt from mandatory declassification, thereby preventing public disclosure under existing provisions of law.

linkSummary

Limitations on Use of Funds for Unreported Programs: No funds can be used to support activities involving unidentified anomalous phenomena unless the Secretary of Defense provides details to the appropriate congressional committees and leadership. This applies to activities described in the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office's 2024 fiscal year report.

Independent Research and Development: Funding related to unidentified anomalous phenomena cannot be considered as indirect expenses for contracts covered by Department of Defense Instruction Number 3204.01. However, such information can be made available to the appropriate congressional committees and leadership.

Definitions: Terms such as "appropriate congressional committees," "congressional leadership", and "unidentified anomalous phenomena" are clearly defined.

Establishment of Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Records Collection: The Archivist is to establish a collection of unidentified anomalous phenomena records in the National Archives. The collection will consist of all government, government-provided, or government-funded records relating to unidentified anomalous phenomena and equivalent subjects.

Disclosure of Records: All unidentified anomalous phenomena records transmitted to the National Archives for public disclosure will be included in the Collection and made available to the public.

Fees for Copying: The Archivist will charge fees for copying unidentified anomalous phenomena records, with the amount not exceeding the actual expenses incurred by the National Archives in making and providing the copy.

Review, Identification, Transmission to the National Archives, and Public Disclosure of Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Records by Government Offices: Each head of a Government office is to identify, organize, and prepare for transmission records relating to unidentified anomalous phenomena to the Archivist for inclusion in the Collection.

Grounds for Postponement of Public Disclosure of Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Records: Disclosure of these records may be postponed if there is clear and convincing evidence that the threat to the military defense, intelligence operations, or conduct of foreign relations of the United States posed by the public disclosure outweighs the public interest in disclosure.

Funding Limitations Relating to Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena: No funds can be used in support of any activity involving unidentified anomalous phenomena unless the Director of National Intelligence has provided the details of the activity to the appropriate committees of Congress and congressional leadership.

linkTimeline

Enactment of the Act: This is the starting point of the timeline. The specific date will depend on when the Act is officially passed into law.

Within 45 days of enactment, The Archivist prepares and makes available to all Government offices a standard form of identification for use with each record (Sec. 1842).

No later than 60 days after enactment: The Archivist commences the establishment of a collection of unidentified anomalous phenomena records at the National Archives (Sec. 1841).

As soon as practicable after enactment, Each head of a government office begins to identify, organize, and prepare for transmission of the records in their possession (Sec. 1842).

Not later than 300 days after enactment: Each head of a Government office completes the review, identification, and organization of each record for public disclosure and transmission (Sec. 1842).

Records are available to the public for inspection and copying at the National Archives within 30 days of their transmission (Sec. 1841).

Records are available digitally via the National Archives online database within 180 days of their transmission (Sec. 1841).

If disclosure is postponed, The head of the Executive agency notifies congressional leadership and the oversight committees of Congress within 15 days of such decision (Sec. 1843).

No later than 25 years after the date of the first creation of the record: Each record shall be publicly disclosed in full (Sec. 1842).

Fiscal year 2024: Limitations on the use of funds for certain unreported programs involving unidentified anomalous phenomena come into effect (Sec. 1687, Sec. 7343).

linkAnalysis

See threads and discussions for links to source materials.

😀 Sec. 1005—Requirement for unqualified opinion on Department of Defense financial statement - Requires the DOD to get a clean audit by 2028.

😀 Sec. 1687. Limitation on use of funds for certain unreported programs - Gillibrand Amendment - prohibits funds from being used on any UAP programs unless disclosed to Congressional leadership and Intel and Armed Services Committees. This also covers IRADs.

🤔 Sec. 1841. Unidentified anomalous phenomena records collection at the National Archives and Records Administration—Parts of Schumer/Rounds—Establishes a collection of records in the National Archives for UAP records. The Senate Homeland Security, Armed Services, and Intel Committees, together with the House Oversight, Armed Services, and Intel Committees, have oversight.

😒 Sec 1842. Sec. 1842. Review, identification, transmission to the National Archives, and public disclosure of unidentified anomalous phenomena records by government offices - More of Schumer/Rounds - Each governmental office holding UAP records must identify all UAP records and send them to the National Archives. There is no review board. However, there is a requirement that each document must be disclosed in full within 25 years of its creation unless the President certifies that there would be identifiable harm to national security and that outweighs the public interest in disclosure.

😡 Sec 1843. Grounds for postponement of public disclosure of unidentified anomalous phenomena records - Contains some additional circumstances under which particular records can be withheld from disclosure when they involve grave harm to national security and reveal sources and methods.

☹️ There's a lot more to Sections 1841-3, as they are quite complex and will require further analysis in the coming days. They are far short of what we want, but we shouldn't be blind to any benefits contained within them.

😀 Section 7343. Funding limitations relating to unidentified anomalous phenomena. - largely a repeat of Section 1687

🤔 Sections 7601-6 contain broad reforms to the laws on classification that will require further analysis. It may have an impact on UAP secrecy issues. Previously mentioned it here: https://x.com/CuriousNHI/status/1695792419864813837?s=20

🤔 Sec. 7801-4. Improved funding flexibility for payments made by the Central Intelligence Agency for qualifying injuries to the brain contains provisions related to assisting those subject to anomalous health incidents (i.e., possible UAP or Havana syndrome). More analysis is required, but previously covered this here: https://x.com/CuriousNHI/status/1695792420993069266?s=20

😤 It also appears that they took out reforms of the IC IG whistleblower process that were in part or wholly inspired by some of the issues David Grusch had.

21:53:04👾: If the Senate passes the yearly NDAA bill and Congress creates and passes a different version of the bill. how do the two get reconciled? This is the National Defence bill

21:53:04🤖: When the Senate and the House of Representatives (collectively referred to as Congress) each pass different versions of a bill, such as the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), they reconcile the differences through a process known as "conference." In this process, a "conference committee" is formed, made up of members from both the Senate and the House. This committee's job is to resolve discrepancies between the two versions of the bill. They create a "conference report," which is essentially a compromise bill that draws from both the Senate's and House's versions. Once the conference committee agrees on a final version of the bill, it is sent back to both the Senate and the House for a vote. If both pass it, it then goes to the President for approval or veto. If they cannot agree, the bill may die, or one house may decide to pass the other house's version. If the President vetoes the bill, it can still become law if both the Senate and the House vote to override the veto with a two-thirds majority in each chamber.


The NDAA is a huge document, with over 2,330 pages. It is divided into hierarchies as such:

Division -> Title -> Subtitle -> Part -> Section

As I understand it, Burchett’s Bill is to be added to the end of Subtitle G, of Title X, of Division A. Namely:

Division A: Department of Defense Authorizations

Title X: General Provisions

Subtitle G: Other Matters

This is the only “Subtitle G” of a “Title A” that I could find in the entire document, so I assume this is the portion of the NDAA that Burchett is referring to.

The existing UAP Disclosure Act has an entire Division dedicated to it, namely:

Division G: Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Disclosure

Based on this understanding of the NDAA, Burchett’s addition to the bill didn't seem intended to replace the Senate UAP Disclosure Act, regardless of what Gaetz’s tweet implied.


AMENDMENT TO RULES COMMITTEE PRINT 118- 10 OFFERED BY MR. BURCHETT OF TENNESSEE At the end of subtitle G of title X, add the following new section: 1 SEC. 10ll. DECLASSIFICATION OF CERTAIN REPORTS OF 2 UNIDENTIFIED AERIAL PHENOMENA. 3 (a) IN GENERAL.—Not later than 180 days after the 4 dates of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Defense 5 shall declassify any documents and other records in the 6 possession of the Department of Defense relating to pub7 likely known sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena. 8 (b) DEFINITION.—In this section, the term ‘‘publicly 9 known sighting of unidentified aerial phenomena’’ means 10 a sighting of an unidentified aerial phenomenon 11 about which there is information available in the public 12 domain prior to the declassification of documents and 13 records required under subsection (a).

link2023, September 14 - NASA is well-positioned to contribute to studying Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) within a broader government framework. The agency's expertise in data analysis, collection, curation, and distribution makes it a key player.

NASA is well-positioned to contribute to studying Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) within a broader government framework. The agency's expertise in data analysis, collection, curation, and distribution makes it a key player. Engaging the public through crowdsourcing techniques, such as smartphone apps, can enhance data collection. NASA should explore the development of a crowdsourcing system and help establish a standardized civilian UAP reporting system. Additionally, NASA's involvement can help reduce the stigma around UAP reporting, which currently hinders data collection. NASA's credibility and transparency can set an example for approaching UAP research scientifically and involving the public. Furthermore, the panel suggests integrating UAP studies into the Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS), administered by NASA for the FAA. This confidential system, receiving thousands of reports yearly, could provide valuable data for understanding UAP threats to airspace safety. Leveraging NASA's partnership with the FAA, advanced analysis techniques could enhance future air traffic management systems. NASA's fleet of earth-observing satellites should play a powerful supporting role in determining the environmental conditions that coincide with UAP. It is essential to note the pivotal role structured data curation plays in a rigorous and evidence-based framework to understand UAP better. The U.S. commercial remote-sensing industry offers a potent mix of Earth-observing sensors with the potential to resolve UAP events directly. The standardization of collected information via well-crafted calibration will make it possible to carry out a rigorous scientific investigation into UAP. NASA's experience in this area will be vital. NASA should leverage its considerable expertise in this domain to potentially utilize multispectral or hyperspectral data as part of a rigorous campaign.

This post discusses the discovery of two previously unknown species with unique genetic information backed up in a DNA database accessible to other scientists for verification. Tests, including those by metallurgy specialists, radiologists, and geneticists, have authenticated the bodies and their age. Scans of the bodies reveal metal implants, eggs with embryos, and organic material inside. It mentions government efforts to block and spread misinformation about these findings. The post also highlights depictions of similar beings in ancient civilizations. The author encourages scepticism and independent research. Forensic scientists discuss scans of substances found on the bodies and speculate on their joints and motor function. DNA comparisons with over a million samples reveal a departure from the Darwinian theory of evolution. The post concludes by asserting the authenticity of these once-living creatures. Jaime Maussan, a self-proclaimed "ufologist" with a history of pseudoscience and false claims about extraterrestrials, presented two specimens allegedly of "alien" remains to the Mexican Congress. Maussan testified that the shrivelled grey bodies with three fingers on each hand are "non-human beings not part of our terrestrial evolution." However, experts quickly criticized his claims, stating that they lacked evidence. Maussan's assertion that carbon dating conducted by researchers at the National Autonomous University of Mexico supports his claims was contradicted by the university, which distanced itself from his testimony. Maussan's previous claims, including one about an alien body in 2015 and another involving specimens in Nazca, Peru, in 2017, have been debunked. Despite the lack of analysis and data release, images of the supposed aliens have circulated on social media. This incident coincides with renewed interest in extraterrestrial phenomena, as NASA appointed its first director of UAP research and former Air Force intelligence officer David Grusch testified about non-human "biologics" from UAP crash sites.

The Mexican Chamber of Deputies is set to conduct a public hearing similar to those held in the United States Congress, focusing on unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Morenista representative Sergio Gutiérez Luna announced this, with renowned UFO specialist Jaime Maussan participating in the event. Gutiérez Luna stated that Mexico is joining the global movement of nations addressing this phenomenon, emphasizing the potential impact on future generations. The hearing will include speakers like former US Navy pilot Ryan Graves, who claims to have encountered UFOs during flights and aims to establish regulations for anomalous aerial phenomena in Mexico. Jaime Maussan welcomed the Mexican authorities' openness to these "extraordinary realities," and the public hearing is scheduled for September 12th at 4:00 p.m. in the San Lázaro campus. Earlier in the US, a subcommittee of the House Oversight conducted a hearing featuring military officers testifying about UFO sightings, confirming the US government's detection of such objects, encompassing phenomena in space or water. The hearing, broadcast live on YouTube, lasted over two hours and involved individuals from the intelligence community reporting encounters with anomalous ships and evidence of "non-human intelligence."

Additionally, retired Major David Grusch revealed to Congress a long-standing US program dedicated to recovering and reverse-engineering UFOs, contradicting the Pentagon's denial of such claims. This congressional involvement in "unidentified aerial phenomena" (UAP) reflects a shift from extraterrestrial speculations to national security concerns, with lawmakers from both parties advocating for further investigation due to potential ties to US adversaries.

https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-66786611

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has potentially discovered a molecule called dimethyl sulphide (DMS) on a distant planet, K2-18b, which could indicate life, as living organisms on Earth typically produce DMS. However, researchers emphasize that this finding is not yet confirmed, and more data is needed. In addition to DMS, methane and carbon dioxide have been detected in the planet's atmosphere, potentially indicating the presence of a water ocean. K2-18b is unique as it is much larger than Earth and falls into the category of "sub-Neptunes," poorly understood in terms of their atmospheres. While this discovery is exciting, further research is required to ascertain the presence of life in this distant world.

Starting around the 20:40 mark, the discussion delves into the creation of laws related to obfuscation and secrecy by the officials involved in the Manhattan Project. It's highlighted that UAP materials emitting radiation are intentionally classified under the Atomic Energy Act. Moving to the 23:00 mark, there's mention of a classified project related to the Manhattan Project that studied UFOs independently of Project Blue Book. Skipping to the 28:00 mark, Grusch suggests that gauging the technological advancement of nonhuman intelligence is challenging. He emphasizes that their progress isn't necessarily linear and may have taken a different evolutionary path but are not significantly more advanced than humans. At 29:50, he mentions the potential for humanity to make major technological strides, possibly one discovery away from manipulating spacetime. Around 30:29, it's noted that UFOs appear to be interested in our nuclear technology. Skipping to 36:00, the discussion raises the possibility of hidden scientific breakthroughs. At 44:00, Dr. Hal Puthoff of the Pentagon insinuates that antigravity research made progress and was subsequently hidden. Around 47:00, UFO metamaterials are discussed. The host connects the "UFO Disclosure" movement and intentional disinformation to the "elite." Moving to 1:04:00, there's a history of "UFO debunkers" linked to government organizations studying UAP. At 1:17:28, Elizondo and Dr. Garry Nolan's statements about bioengineered AI beings operating UFOs are referenced. Grusch explores this possibility, including the idea that these beings are designed to look humanoid to interact with humans. Around 1:19:30, the possibility of ETs being our descendants from the future is discussed, with the host suggesting they might avoid major interventions to preserve the timeline. Finally, from 1:27:00 onward, Grusch details how being on the Autism spectrum has influenced his interactions.

The Department of Defense is reshuffling leadership at the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office, the agency within the Pentagon that’s responsible for investigating reports of unidentified aerial phenomena or, as they’re better known, unidentified flying objects. Deputy Secretary Of Defense Kathleen Hicks will now oversee AARO, while the program’s current director, Sean Kirkpatrick, will report directly to her.

AARO will accept reports from current or former U.S. Government employees, service members, or contractors with direct knowledge of U.S. Government programs or activities related to UAP dating back to 1945*. These reports will inform AARO’s congressionally directed Historical Record Report. We will announce when a reporting mechanism is available for others to use. The Pentagon on Thursday announced the launch of a new website with the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), which will provide the public with declassified information about UFOs, or what the government calls unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAPs). Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks recently moved to personally oversee the Pentagon’s unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP) investigation team, formally known as the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, DefenseScoop has exclusively learned. A new website will soon be launched where incidents can be reported.

Hicks now holds regular meetings with AARP's inaugural director, Sean Kirkpatrick — who she’s also repositioned to report directly to her.

David Grusch's testimony received the most attention with his statement: "I have no ability to verify that testimony because we’ve not been told of any such programs. We’ve asked for all information related to all programs and have not been given that detail." As someone who helped secure full funding for AARO this year, do you believe the U.S. adequately researches and reviews incidents of unidentified anomalous phenomena? I believe that the AARO office is exceptional and well-equipped for this task. If there are any special access programs – SAP programs – that Congress has not been informed about, we have included an amendment in the defence bill to prevent their funding. We aim to avoid being misled or led astray. We are committed to uncovering the truth, and this office is ideally positioned to accomplish that mission.

The legislation, outlined in multiple sections, aims to establish a comprehensive framework for handling and disclosing records related to Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAPs) within the United States government. It mandates the creation of the "Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Records Collection" at the National Archives and Records Administration, encompassing government records on UAPs, unknown origin technologies, and non-human intelligence. Records must be catalogued, preserved, and made digitally accessible. The legislation establishes a Review Board, independent of the government, responsible for determining the disclosure or postponement of records based on specific grounds, including threats to national security, confidentiality, and personal privacy. The Review Board's activities are subject to oversight by Senate and House committees, and it reports annually on its progress. The legislation seeks to enhance transparency while safeguarding sensitive information, ultimately leading to a comprehensive understanding of UAP-related phenomena.

The Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2024, detailed across pages 209 and 110, introduces amendments concerning Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAPs). The act defines key terms such as "Director" and "Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena" and expresses concern about potential technological surprises from foreign adversaries. It directs the Federal Government to increase awareness about historical exotic technology antecedents. Funding limitations are imposed on activities involving UAPs protected under special access or restricted access classifications, requiring full disclosure and justification to appropriate congressional committees, leadership, and the Director of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office. These limitations encompass capturing, analyzing, protecting, and reverse-engineering UAP-related materials or technology. Contractors possessing such materials must notify the Director and provide them within set timeframes. Independent research and development funding linked to UAP materials may not be permissible without sharing it with the Director, who must notify Congress upon receiving UAP-related materials or information.

Grusch lodged whistleblower complaints in 2022 and 2021 to disclose classified UFO information to the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. He alleges a collaborative effort involving the Vatican and Five Eyes to obtain a "non-human" craft recovered by Mussolini's government in 1933, expressing concerns about potential American casualties linked to concealing UFO information. Despite NASA and the U.S. Department of Defense's denial of extraterrestrial life and alien materials, Grusch's claims have triggered a congressional UFO hearing scheduled for July 26, 2023, led by the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability. A decorated combat officer with experience in intelligence agencies, Grusch claims to have witnessed documents detailing UFO retrievals and reverse engineering, positing that UFOs might originate from extra dimensions. Scepticism from some experts and scientists centres on the absence of concrete evidence to validate Grusch's assertions, which align with a pattern of similar claims from former federal department employees over the years, prompting questions about their credibility.

The shared DNA system's resemblance implies a common origin, likely stemming from a similar physicochemical process and initial conditions. Non-coding sequences, once dubbed "junk DNA," are vital for gene expression regulation through epigenetics. The 64bp gene address mentioned may solely function in genetic engineering, possibly lacking relevance within EBOs' bodies. EBOs employ a 4bp chromosomal address, capable of distinguishing 256 chromosomes, surpassing the 16 observed in their genome. Despite this, the uniformity of intergenic regions in EBOs raises concerns about potential unintended interactions and chromosomal fragility. The notion of an "index" system in EBOs may pose challenges due to shared core palindromic sequences and minor differences between target index sequences.

On May 17, 2022, the United States House Intelligence Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation convened public congressional hearings to address military reports of unexplained aerial phenomena (UAPs). Marking the first such hearings in over 50 years, the event delved into the history of UFO investigations, including the disbandment of Project Blue Book in 1969 due to a perceived lack of national security threat. Media reports in 2017 and the 2020 Covid relief bill highlighted secretive Pentagon efforts to study UAPs. The June 2021 unclassified report, mandated by the Covid relief bill, revealed that 144 UAP incidents dating back to 2004 remained unexplained, prompting a call for further investigation. In November 2021, the Pentagon established the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group (AOIMSG) to continue the work of the Navy's Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force. The 2022 hearings featured military officials testifying about the rising number of sightings, the necessity of interagency cooperation, and the potential threats of foreign hypersonic weapons programs. Declassified images and footage of UFOs were presented during the hearings, underlining the need for ongoing study of these phenomena.

Issued on June 25, 2021, by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Report offers a comprehensive overview of UAPs, compiling 144 observations by the U.S. Armed Forces from 2004 to 2021. The report highlights that the UAP Task Force struggled to ascertain the origins of most sightings (143 out of 144), identifying only one case as a "large, deflating balloon." Notable characteristics of UAPs include their unconventional flight behaviour, like hovering against the wind and sudden manoeuvres without apparent propulsion. The report classifies potential explanations into airborne clutter, atmospheric phenomena, government or industry developmental programs, foreign adversary systems, and an "other" category. Although not attributing the phenomena to extraterrestrial life, the report underscores the need for further study and investment. Some UAP sightings correlate with radio frequency energy, prompting exploration into potential groundbreaking technology. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio expressed concerns about national security implications, and the report's classified annexe was presented to congressional intelligence committees. Despite the categorizations, the report doesn't offer a conclusive explanation for all the observed UAPs.

The Pentagon UFO videos consist of visual recordings captured by US Navy fighter jets in 2004, 2014, 2015, and 2019, depicting encounters with unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). After gaining significant media attention and speculation, the Pentagon officially declassified and released these videos in 2020 and 2021. Notable instances include Commander David Fravor's investigation of a possible UFO target in 2004, observing a white, oval-shaped object hovering above the ocean, and videos from 2014-2015 showing unknown aerial objects encountered by pilots from the USS Theodore Roosevelt carrier strike group. Various explanations for these videos include instrument malfunctions, observational illusions, conventional aircraft or aerial devices, and speculative ideas about alien spacecraft. Some experts suggest the UFOs might be drones operated by foreign nations to assess US defenses, while others consider possibilities like electronic warfare or sensor errors. The US Navy revised its reporting procedures to encourage pilots to report unexplained aerial observations. The 2021 preliminary UFO report by the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) did not provide a definitive conclusion on the nature of these UAPs, presenting five potential categories of explanation. The investigation into UAP phenomena continues, focusing on implications for aircraft safety and national security.

Former Senate majority leader Harry Reid mentioned that he had talked with President Bill Clinton about aerial phenomena and UFOs during his presidency. Reid noted that Clinton's curiosity extended to a wide range of topics, and while the conversation was passing, Clinton was interested in the subject. Reid also mentioned that John Podesta, one of Clinton's top staffers who worked for him at Walmart, has publicly supported UFO disclosure. Reid's interaction with Clinton on the topic suggests that even during Clinton's time in office, there was some level of interest and discussion regarding UFOs.

https://www.cnn.com/2017/12/16/politics/pentagon-ufo-project/index.html

Former Senate majority leader Harry Reid was key in initiating the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), a Pentagon program focused on investigating reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). The program was active from late 2008 through 2011 and cost taxpayers $22 million. Much of the funding went to an aerospace research company led by Robert Bigelow, a close ally of Reid, who is also collaborating with NASA on space projects. The program was run secretly within the Pentagon, led by military intelligence official Luis Elizondo. Although the Defense Department officially stated that the program ended in 2012, insiders suggest that it continues investigating UFO episodes reported by service members while performing their other defense duties. The existence of such a program demonstrates an ongoing interest in monitoring potential unidentified aerial threats.

Avi Loeb, a prominent astrophysicist at Harvard University, has gained attention for his groundbreaking research in astrophysics, particularly on topics such as black holes and the early universe. However, he has also stirred controversy by delving into the subject of space aliens and their potential existence. His involvement with the Breakthrough Starshot project, aimed at sending light sail spacecraft to nearby stars, drew significant interest. In 2017, Loeb's focus shifted when the interstellar object 'Oumuamua entered the scene. The object's peculiar properties, including its shape, reflectivity, and acceleration, led Loeb to propose the idea that it might be an extraterrestrial light sail, a notion that has garnered both media attention and skepticism from fellow scientists. Despite criticism, Loeb stands firm in his belief that the scientific community should openly explore unconventional ideas, including the search for technological signs of alien life. He has published a book, "Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth," to further discuss his persfirmly believespective and challenge the norms of scientific inquiry. Loeb emphasizes the importance of genuine curiosity, evidence-based exploration, and open dialogue in shaping the future of scientific discovery.

Pope Francis expressed his openness to baptizing aliens during a homily on acceptance and inclusion within the Catholic Church. He referred to a Bible story about pagans' conversion to Christianity and emphasized accepting the Holy Spirit, even if it comes in unimaginable forms. The Pope humorously described a hypothetical scenario of baptizing a Martian with green skin, long nose, and big ears, akin to children's drawings. He highlighted the historical struggle within Christianity to accept various manifestations of God's presence and questioned the right to close doors if the Lord shows the way. This isn't the first instance of the Vatican discussing the idea of baptizing extraterrestrial beings, as a former astronomer of Pope Benedict XVI also mentioned willingness to baptize aliens if they asked.

https://oversight.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/Ryan-HOC-Testimony.pdf

Beginning in 2014, I was stationed near Virginia Beach, and my squadron, VFA-11, was equipped with upgraded radar systems. It was then that we began detecting unexplained UAP in our airspace. Initially considered software glitches, we confirmed their physical presence through infrared sensors. Over time, these UAP sightings became commonplace, even routine, and were corroborated by multiple sensor systems. These encounters led to open discussions among aircrew, forming an "open secret" within our squadron.

One significant event occurred during a training mission in Warning Area W-72, ten miles off Virginia Beach's coast. On this day in 2014, as our F/A-18F Super Hornets entered the airspace, my fellow pilot and I observed a dark gray cube encased within a clear sphere, seemingly motionless against the wind, positioned directly at our entry point. In response to avoid a collision, both aircraft were forced to take evasive maneuvers, abruptly terminating the mission. Despite submitting a safety report, there was no official acknowledgment or further reporting mechanism for such encounters. These UAP encounters displayed extraordinary capabilities that surpassed our understanding of existing technology. Their acceleration exceeded Mach 1, remained motionless against strong winds, and outperformed our fighter jets, operating seamlessly throughout the day. These objects exhibited no conventional features like wings, flaps, or engines. As an engineer, I struggled to explain these phenomena.

I founded Americans for Safe Aerospace to offer support, research, and public education for aircrew impacted by UAP encounters. Our organization has connected with nearly 5,000 members and worked with over 30 UAP witnesses who have come forward with their experiences. In conclusion, I aim today to emphasize the urgency of addressing these UAP events. As a pilot and witness, I firmly believe advanced UAP sightings are a significant national security and aviation safety concern. The American people, and the global community, deserve transparency and serious investigation into these encounters.

Area 51, also known as Homey Airport or Groom Lake, is a secretive facility within the Nevada Test and Training Range, operated by the US Air Force (USAF) and administered by Edwards Air Force Base. While its operations are undisclosed, it's believed to be involved in testing experimental aircraft and weapons systems. The USAF and CIA acquired the site in 1955 to test the Lockheed U-2 aircraft. Its secrecy has led to conspiracy theories and UFO legends. Though not officially labeled a secret base, all activities are classified as Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS/SCI). The CIA confirmed its existence in 2013 after declassifying documents following a Freedom of Information Act request. Situated about 83 miles north-northwest of Las Vegas, Area 51 and the surrounding region, including the town of Rachel on the "Extraterrestrial Highway," have become a popular tourist attraction.

On November 7, 2006, around 16:15 CST, a remarkable incident occurred at Chicago O'Hare International Airport. Federal authorities received a report that a group of twelve airport employees had witnessed a metallic, saucer-shaped craft hovering over Gate C-17. The sighting began when a ramp employee pushing back United Airlines Flight 446, bound for Charlotte, North Carolina, spotted the object. The sighting was corroborated by pilots, airline personnel, and mechanics. Interestingly, air traffic controllers did not observe the object, and it didn't register on radar. Witnesses described the craft as noiseless, with a diameter ranging from 6 to 24 feet, and it appeared dark gray. Witnesses outside the airport also reported seeing the same object, with one observer describing it as a disc-shaped craft hovering over the airport, creating a distinct hole in the cloud cover as it shot through at high speed. This unusual event lasted for about five minutes and was witnessed by several United Airlines employees who had rushed out to view it

Flight 446 was getting ready to fly to North Carolina from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport when a United Airlines employee on the tarmac noticed a dark grey metallic craft hovering over gate C17. That day, November 7, 2006, a total of 12 United employees—and a few witnesses outside the airport—spotted the saucer-shaped craft around 4:15 p.m.

The witnesses say it hovered for about five minutes before shooting upward, where it broke a hole in the clouds—enough that pilots and mechanics could see the blue sky. The news report became the most-read story on The Chicago Tribune’s website to that date and made international news. However, because the UFO was not seen on radar, the FAA called it a “weather phenomenon” and declined to investigate.

A "secret report" by the UK's Ministry of Defence (MoD) regarding UFOs has garnered media attention. The report, authored in 2000 and recently unearthed by researcher David Clarke, compiles UFO sightings reported to the MoD over previous decades. However, the report's credibility has been questioned due to its lack of direct consultation with scientists and reliance on literature searches and theories from UFO folklore. The report suggests that many UFO sightings could be attributed to misidentifications of aircraft or unusual weather phenomena. Claims that plasma balls in the atmosphere could interfere with the brain's temporal lobes and create abduction memories have also been criticized as lacking solid scientific backing.

A document marked "Top Secret Umbra" has been released, shedding light on how the National Security Agency (NSA) became involved in the UFO phenomenon. The document, originally filed in 1980 in response to a lawsuit, reveals that the NSA had 239 UFO-related documents in its files, with some originating from other government agencies. The document highlights intercepted communications discussing unidentified aerial phenomena, radar observations, and reports of luminous objects in the sky. The document is largely declassified, with redacted sections to protect employee names and sensitive NSA information. Despite its release, the document does not address the UFO phenomenon conclusively but provides insight into the NSA's operations during the Cold War era.

On November 2004, Fravor was the Commanding Officer of Strike Fighter Squadron Forty-One aboard the USS Nimitz (CVN-68). During a training exercise, he encountered a distinctive UAP phenomenon. As he launched with his wingman, they were informed of real-world tasking, suspending their training exercise. The USS Princeton, CG-59, tracked unknown objects on their radar systems for about two weeks. These objects had descended from above 80,000 feet, coming down to 20,000 feet, remaining for hours, and ascending rapidly.

On that day, at 20,000 feet, a contact appeared in the vicinity, and the controller indicated a Merge Plot. As they observed, they spotted a small Tic Tac-shaped object above the ocean's white water. It exhibited extraordinary agility, abruptly changing direction and altitude. Fravor's aircraft attempted to approach for a closer look, but the object accelerated and disappeared. The incident was captured in a now-famous video taken by another crew. Fravor revealed that the event was never officially investigated, and his crew was not questioned. In 2009, Jay Stratton, part of the ATIP program, reached out to investigate. Fravor continued by discussing his subsequent contact with Lue Elizondo, who had left the Pentagon and joined To The Stars Academy. This organization addressed UAP issues, leading to articles in the New York Times in December 2017, contributing to the growing public and government interest in UAPs. Their aircraft's infrared sensor also detected the object's heat signature, which lacked the typical plume of conventional propulsion systems. While the exact number of observers is not explicitly stated, it involved Commander Fravor, his Weapons System Officer, and potentially his wingman, emphasizing the need for oversight and understanding of such UAP encounters.

A former White House chief of staff, John Podesta, and an international investigative journalist have called on the Pentagon to declassify classified files related to unidentified flying objects (UFOs). They are not seeking to prove the existence of aliens but rather to promote the scientific investigation of unexplained aerial phenomena. The Coalition for Freedom of Information (CFI), backed by the Sci-Fi channel, aims to access secret government records involving projects like Project Moon Dust and Operation Blue Fly, which were clandestine operations investigating UFOs and retrieving unknown objects. The CFI emphasizes that the goal is a serious scientific investigation, not a publicity stunt, to address the documented cases of strange aerial phenomena and reduce scientific ridicule associated with UFOs.

Facing extradition to the United States from his North London home, he could receive a 70-year prison term and hefty fines. McKinnon's actions took place between February 2001 and March 2002, and his search through U.S. computer networks occurred when U.S. national security was under increased scrutiny following the September 11, 2001 attacks. In this exclusive interview, he discusses his motives, findings, and experiences, describing his belief in suppressed information about antigravity, UFO-related technologies, and free energy.

It also contained information about ship-to-ship transfers, but I've never seen the names of these ships noted anywhere else. I was able to briefly see one of these pictures. It was a silvery, cigar-shaped object with geodesic spheres on either side. There were no visible seams or riveting. There was no reference to the size of the object and the picture was taken presumably by a satellite looking down on it. The object didn't look manmade or anything like what we have created.

During the cold war, the U.S. military misled the public about the true nature of many unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings to hide the existence of its spy planes, according to a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) study. The study reveals that many UFO reports were actually sightings of U-2 and SR-71 spy planes developed in the 1950s and 1960s to gather intelligence. These planes flew at high altitudes beyond those of commercial airliners, which contributed to their mysterious appearances. Rather than acknowledging the existence of these top-secret flights, the Air Force created false cover stories attributing the sightings to atmospheric phenomena. The admission of this deception is seen as significant and raises questions about other UFO-related cover-ups.

The Varginha UFO incident occurred in 1996 in Varginha, Brazil, involving claims of sightings of strange creatures and UFOs by residents. Witnesses reported a large-headed creature with red eyes and unusual markings called the "ET de Varginha." Rumors spread, suggesting captured extraterrestrial beings in a hospital and military involvement. However, an official inquiry in 2010 debunked these claims, attributing the sightings to misinterpretations of normal events or people with physical conditions. Skeptics criticized sensational media coverage, and despite the debunking, the incident left a lasting impact on Varginha, leading to tourism and merchandise related to aliens and UFOs. Structures like spaceship-shaped bus stops and a water tower with a disc-shaped reservoir were erected, reflecting the incident's influence on local culture and economy.

The discussion pertains to the secrecy surrounding Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) and its potential connection to socioeconomic factors.

The implication is that disclosing information about UAPs could shift our understanding. Unfortunately, your text does not provide specific URL links for additional context.

The individual had access to information from the highest echelons of the intelligence community, including insights from informants like Bobby Ray Inman, a distinguished figure in the US Navy and Intelligence Community. Inman conveyed that matters related to Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) or Non-Human Intelligence (NHI) are classified under national secrecy regulations, revealing possession of operational crafts in this realm. The concept of NHI dates back to 1993, and secrecy surrounding these subjects traces its origins to the 1950s. Reference is made to a NASA study exploring the potential consequences of publicly addressing encounters with NHI, highlighting significant shifts in theology, economics, technology, and energy, exemplified by the obsolescence of fossil fuels. Rather than an abrupt disclosure, the approach gradually introduced transformative changes over time, although this strategy deviated from its intended course. Multiple governments are similarly inclined to keep these matters confidential due to concerns about socio-economic upheaval, as also indicated by Grusch. The narrator underscores personal sightings of NHI vehicles on several occasions.

The claim suggests that Russian soldiers were turned to stone after shooting down a UFO on March 27, 1993. A CIA report, complete with photos and witness statements, documents the incident. According to reports from a Ukrainian publication called Ternopil Vechirniy, soldiers in Siberia observed a flying saucer, shot it down, and saw five alien beings emerge. The story states that a white ball appeared, exploded, and turned 23 soldiers into stone. There are speculations about alleged contact between Russians and gray aliens in 1942. Surviving soldiers described the aliens' advanced technology. However, due to the fantastical nature of the claim, it should be approached with skepticism and verified through credible sources. Declassified documents related to the incident can be found on the CIA's website.

These UAP events, known as "fast walkers," were tracked by NORAD. The USAF Foreign Technology Division, Flight Performance Division (FTD/SQDF), was assigned to analyze unknown data related to these UAPs. The paper notes "undocumented" simulations conducted on UAP within NORAD's Space Surveillance Center at Cheyenne Mountain Complex. It remains unclear if conclusions regarding fast walkers were shared with Congress in classified settings, as they have not been disclosed publicly or in open hearings. J. Allen Hynek, Project Blue Book's scientific advisor, previously revealed that NORAD and SAC radar had tracked UAP in 1967.

In a congress leak from 29 December 1987, CIA and civilian pilot John Lear, the son of William Lear, founder of Lear Siegler Corp, claimed that the US government (USG) had been collaborating with gray extraterrestrials since the 1960s. He made several other claims, including assertions that Germany may have recovered a saucer as early as 1939, Gen. James Doolittle inspected a crashed saucer in Sweden in 1946, Truman established MJ-12 in 1947, and there were multiple saucer crashes in the late 1940s in places like Roswell, Aztec, and Laredo, TX. Notably, one saucer crashed in the 1950s was too large to transport and had to be buried. Allegedly, the logistics for moving crashed saucers were legendary, involving night moves, purchasing entire farms, clearing forests, blocking highways, and using multiple trucks in tandem. He also claimed that the first communication between aliens and the USG occurred at Holloman AFB on 30 April 1964, leading to a deal in which the USG ignored abductions in exchange for technology. He said abductions were more sinister than just monitoring; they involved implanting devices, posthypnotic suggestions, termination of people for biological material, termination of threats, genetic experiments, and impregnation. He further asserted that an altercation occurred at the Dulce laboratory in 1979. By the 1980s, MJ-12, a secretive group, began promoting positive film projects about aliens to distract from their dealings with extraterrestrial beings. Some MJ-12 members at a place referred to as the "Country Club" contemplated confessing the scheme, while others aimed to develop anti-UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) weapons under the cover of SDI (Strategic Defense Initiative). One saucer was so enormous, and the logistical problems in transportation were so enormous that it was buried at the crash site and remains there today. The stories are legendary for transporting crashed saucers over long distances, moving only at night, purchasing complete farms, slashing through forests, blocking major highways, and sometimes driving two and three low-boys in tandem with an extraterrestrial load a hundred feet in diameter.

On November 17, 1986, a notable UFO incident involving a Japan Air Lines Cargo Flight 1628 took place. This incident centred around a Japanese Boeing 747-200F cargo aircraft travelling from Paris to Narita International Airport near Tokyo. The airplane was carrying Beaujolais wine. While flying over eastern Alaska during the Reykjavík to Anchorage leg of the journey at around 17:11, the crew spotted two unidentified objects to their left. These objects rapidly ascended from below and approached to escort the aircraft. Each object displayed two arrays of glowing nozzles or thrusters while their bodies remained obscured in darkness. The aircraft's cabin was illuminated, and the crew could feel the heat on their faces as the objects came closer. Eventually, the two escorting craft departed, making way for a much larger, disk-shaped object that began trailing behind the airplane. Anchorage Air Traffic Control even asked an approaching United Airlines flight and a military aircraft to confirm the unidentified traffic, but by around 17:51, when they observed JAL 1628, no other crafts could be identified. The entire sighting persisted for 50 minutes and concluded in the vicinity of Denali.

Security police at the Indian Point Nuclear Plant in Buchanan, NY, reportedly witnessed a UAP with oscillating yellow, white, and blue lights that caused the plant's sensors, alarms, and security communications computer to fail. The UAP, described as cone-shaped and as long as three football fields, passed directly over the Unit 3 reactor for about five minutes. One officer managed to film the object using a camera. Within two days, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reportedly reassigned the plant's security operations, and records of the event were removed. The NRC, a regulatory agency established in the 1970s, was allegedly aware of a similar UAP sighting over another nuclear station in the late 1980s but did not formally investigate it.

On April 11, 1980, at La Joya Air Force Base in Peru, General Luis Spicer oversaw Peruvian Air Force training when a UFO was detected by the control tower. A large, glowing object approached the base, evading attempts at communication. Lieutenant Oscar Santa Maria Huertas piloted a Su-22 to intercept the UFO, describing it as a dome-shaped craft with a bright halo and remarkable agility. Despite firing at it, the UFO absorbed projectiles and ascended rapidly, displaying advanced capabilities. The incident, witnessed by around 2,000 personnel, remains a well-documented UFO encounter involving the military. Santa Maria's encounter with the enigmatic object prompted Peruvian government reporting to U.S. authorities like the CIA, NSA, and secretary of state. General Spicer emphasized the importance of understanding these phenomena to determine their nature and potential implications.



link1980 - Bob Lazar is an American businessman and conspiracy theorist who claims to have worked on reverse-engineering #leak #LARPing #conspiracy

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BobLazar

Bob Lazar is a controversial American businessman and conspiracy theorist who asserts that he participated in reverse-engineering extraterrestrial technology at a secret site called "S-4," located near Area 51. He claims to have examined an alien spacecraft and accessed US government documents detailing alien interactions with humans across millennia. Lazar's claims have popularized discussions about Area 51 and fueled conspiracy narratives regarding its covert activities. However, doubts have been cast on his educational background, as there is no verifiable evidence of his alleged degrees from MIT and Caltech. He was employed as a technician for a contractor at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility, not as a physicist. Critics and the US Air Force have discredited Lazar's alleged involvement in reverse-engineering flying saucers at "S-4," particularly his assertions about an antimatter-powered craft fueled by element E115, which lacks scientific support. His claims about the historical connection between saucers and extraterrestrial beings lack substantiating evidence. Despite attracting both proponents and skeptics, there is no concrete proof to corroborate his claims of alien technology or interactions. Lazar's workplace was subject to a law enforcement raid in 2017, linked to a murder investigation in which he was not implicated.

Operação Prato, a significant UFO phenomenon, unfolded in Brazil from 1977 to 1978. Investigated by the Brazilian Air Force, the event encompassed prolonged UFO sightings and interactions primarily in villages like Colares. Witnesses reported experiencing burns from light rays emitted by the UFOs. Air Force agents witnessed these unidentified aerial phenomena and collected photographic and film evidence. The official investigation lasted four months but continued unofficially into 1978. In 2005, Brazilian ufologists pushed for declassifying classified UFO files, leading to meetings with high-ranking generals. These officials acknowledged the systematic tracking of UFOs since 1954. Recognizing the importance of ufology, the Air Force pledged to release classified files and proposed a collaborative committee for UFO research. However, public access to classified files necessitated approval from the Air Force chief, Defense Minister, and Brazilian president. The Operação Prato incident is part of a broader history of UFO engagement by the Brazilian government, such as the 1986 radar-tracked incident involving UFOs and jet fighter pursuits.

The 1976 Tehran UFO Incident occurred on September 19, involving an unidentified flying object (UFO) over Tehran, Iran. During the event, two F-4 Phantom II jet interceptors from the Imperial Iranian Air Force reported losing instrumentation and communication as they approached the object, with their systems restored upon withdrawal. One jet also experienced a temporary weapons systems failure. Civilians and military personnel spotted a shining object in the sky, and two interceptors were sent to investigate. One pilot reported losing instruments and communications upon approaching the object, while another described encountering a flashing, multicolored object that caused equipment malfunctions when he attempted to engage it. Analysis suggests possible misidentifications of astronomical bodies and meteor showers, as well as equipment malfunctions, contributing to the incident. Skeptics assert that many elements can be explained without invoking the presence of an alien spacecraft.

The flight leader was immediately told that the object had failed to reply to radio contact attempts and was instructed to fire at the plane. As the flight leader armed his missiles and prepared to fire at the object, Cuban Air Defense Headquarters listened as the screaming voice of his wingman came over their radios, stating that his leader’s aircraft had just disintegrated completely, with no visible explosion or sign of an attack. Immediately afterwards, the weird metallic sphere accelerated upward from its altitude of approximately 33,000 feet to over 98,000 feet and headed southeast into South America.

During the Cold War, recently revealed secret files indicate that two U.S. fighter planes were dispatched to intercept and potentially shoot down an unidentified flying object (UFO) over the English countryside. The incident, disclosed through National Archives files in London, occurred in May 1957. Pilot Milton Torres, now living in Miami, recounted his experience when he was seconds away from firing rockets at the object, which exhibited erratic movement and had a radar reading resembling "a flying aircraft carrier." Despite reaching speeds exceeding 7,600 mph (12,000 kph) and moments from firing, the UFO abruptly vanished from radar. Following the incident, Torres was cautioned by an undisclosed individual, threatening national security repercussions if he spoke about it. The documents don't offer an official explanation for the event, with speculation ranging from secret military experiments to possible UFO involvement.

NICAP was a non-profit organization and faced financial collapse many times in its existence, due in no small part to business ineptitude among the group's directors. Following a wave of nationally publicized UFO incidents in the mid-1960s, NICAP's membership spiked dramatically and only then did the organization become financially stable. However, following publication of the Condon Report in 1968, NICAP's membership declined sharply, and the organization again fell into long-term financial decline and disarray.

A recently further declassified 1955 CIA memo highlights a remarkable event during the Cold War involving former U.S. Senator Richard B. Russell's sighting of a "saucer-like" craft in Russia. The memo, authored by Herbert Scoville Jr., details an interview with Russell on October 27, 1955, during which he observed a greenish-yellow ball rising quickly while on a train journey out of Baku. Russell's skepticism transformed into certainty as he and his group witnessed a second similar object ascending into the sky. The objects exhibited a "whirling" motion and a "yellowish glow," observed at a significant altitude without associated lights. Notably, the incident occurred during a train trip personally requested by Russell, dispelling notions of a staged event. Russell also observed military barracks, personnel, and radar installations, including a nearby "big egg beater object," during a motor trip between Moscow and Borodino. The incident was previously mentioned in a 1955 "Current Intelligence Bulletin" and Project Blue Book files, with the full memo's declassification prompted by a Mandatory Declassification Review case.

This document discusses the presence of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in the United States and speculates on their potential Soviet origin and motives. It notes patterns in UFO sightings across the country and dismisses the idea that they are merely rumor-induced, suggesting instead that these sightings may represent advanced Soviet aircraft. The document posits three possible reasons for these Soviet UFOs: first, to sow doubt in the efficacy of U.S. atomic weapons as a propaganda tactic; second, for photographic reconnaissance, possibly to map certain U.S. regions; and third, as a means to test U.S. defense capabilities, crucial information for any potential Soviet strategic planning. This document thus highlights the complex and uncertain nature of the UFO phenomenon during its written period. Among the incidents reported, many statements by reliable and experienced persons tend to confirm that flying objects have been seen. Approximately 210 incidents have been reported. The observers reporting such incidents are trained and experienced U.S. Weather Bureau personnel, USAF-rated officers, experienced civilian pilots, technicians associated with various research projects and technicians employed by commercial airlines. The description of such objects seems to fall roughly into three categories: (1) Silver disks or balls, approximating a Horten wing-type aircraft; (2) Balls of fire of various colors and intensities; (3) Cigar or pencil-shaped objects similar in appearance to V-2 type rockets in horizontal flight. The number of configurations might be further reduced with the following considerations in mind: Silver disks or balls have, for the greater part, been observed in daylight, and a number under clear weather conditions with visibility unlimited. In most instances, balls of fire have been observed at night. Cigar, or pencil-shaped objects, have been sighted in fewer numbers but with about equal distribution in daylight and at night. A few accounts tell of the disks having a rough cigar shape when viewed while maneuvering. Some of the disks are described as having luminosity in daylight. It, therefore, is possible that a single type of object may be involved in all sightings, and differences in description may result from viewing the objects at various angles and under differing conditions of visibility.

Battelle Memorial Institute, a research organization, conducted the analysis. Elroy John Center, a Battelle scientist, was revealed to be a co-author of a 1949 Battelle report on analyzing memory metals, specifically Titanium alloys like Nitinol. Center had privately mentioned his involvement in analyzing UFO debris, and this revelation matched the report's findings obtained through FOIA.

Battelle is highlighted as a significant organization involved in various sectors, including defense and science. The post also notes its connections to government agencies, its status as a 501(c)(3) organization, and its control over various national laboratories. The analysis further points out connections between the report's findings and the characteristics of the Roswell crash metal, including its "shape memory" properties. General Arthur Exon's testimony and General George Schulgen's memo, along with other military studies on memory metals, are discussed as supportive evidence.

Dr. Howard C. Cross, a Battelle scientist, is identified as a key figure in UFO research for government agencies and top-secret Titanium alloy studies. The possibility of Battelle's advanced arc furnace's role in creating Nitinol memory metal is raised. The post also delves into Dr. Edgar Mitchell's statements about a "semi or quasi-private organization" involved in UFO secrecy, which the author connects to Battelle due to its characteristics and involvement in UFO-related projects. Overall, the post presents a detailed analysis of documents, reports, and statements to establish the connection between Battelle Memorial Institute and its role in analyzing materials from the Roswell UFO crash.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BattleofLosAngeles

The Battle of Los Angeles occurred on February 24-25, 1942, in Los Angeles, California, during World War II. It was a purported attack on the continental U.S. by Imperial Japan, prompting a massive anti-aircraft artillery barrage. Shortly after the U.S. entered the war, the event initially raised concerns of a Japanese assault. However, Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox later dismissed it as a "false alarm." Speculation arose about a possible cover-up to hide a real invasion. In 1949, it was revealed that a meteorological balloon had triggered the incident, leading to widespread firing and panic. The U.S. Office of Air Force History attributed the event in 1983 to heightened wartime anxiety and lost weather balloons. Despite official explanations, the incident influenced air raid precautions and increased anti-aircraft defenses, while some continued to question its true cause.

The document outlined several key points, including the acknowledgment that these sightings were not considered fictitious but rather something real and not visionary. Reports described disc-shaped objects of substantial size, some displaying remarkable flight characteristics such as rapid climb rates, exceptional maneuverability, and evasive actions when encountering friendly aircraft and radar. Furthermore, the document noted common features of these objects, including metallic or reflective surfaces, circular or elliptical shapes, and the absence of trails, adding an element of mystery to the sightings. The possibility of domestic origin or the involvement of classified projects was also considered. However, the lack of physical evidence, such as crash-recovered exhibits, remained a challenge in confirming the existence and source of these objects.

Retired lieutenant Colonel Jesse Marcel's claims in 1978 fueled conspiracy theories that the debris was from an alien spaceship and led to government cover-up speculation. The United States Air Force's 1994 report attributed the incident to a nuclear test surveillance balloon from Project Mogul. Despite explanations, the Roswell incident remains associated with UFOs and aliens, reflecting the 1947 flying disc craze and becoming an enduring cultural symbol. The event's portrayal in media and its place in popular culture makes it a significant and long-standing UFO claim.

On December 13th, at Supreme Headquarters, Allied Expeditionary Force, a startling revelation emerged regarding a novel German weapon on the western air front. American Air Force pilots reported their encounters with enigmatic silver spheres hovering over German territory. These spheres appeared either as solitary orbs or in mysterious clusters, occasionally displaying a semi-translucent quality. This astonishing development, dubbed a "secret" weapon, coincided curiously with the Christmas season, resembling the festive glass balls adorning Christmas trees. However, the true nature of these enigmatic spheres remained uncertain, as there was no available information regarding how they remained suspended in the sky, what they contained, or the purpose they were intended to serve. The floating mystery ball had become a perplexing and mystifying addition to the unfolding wartime narrative.

John Lear's UFO hypothesis, detailed in the file UFO 1953, discusses extensive government cover-ups and contact with extraterrestrial beings. Lear, a pilot with a CIA and government background, asserts that the truth about alien interaction has been suppressed for about two decades, causing upheaval. He proposes that Germany may have recovered a saucer in 1939 and describes aliens resembling praying mantises, much more advanced than humans. Some witnesses to the "truth" met mysterious deaths. The MJ-12, a top military scientist group, handles UFO matters involving saucer crashes like Roswell. Lear alleges a communication with aliens at Holloman Air Force Base in 1964 and a technology-for-silence deal in 1969-1971. He claims abductions involve brain implants and genetic experiments, suggesting aliens rely on human and animal tissues for survival, leading to cattle mutilations. Lear states MJ-12 planned gradual disclosure to the public, potentially involving UFO researcher William Moore. He implies extraterrestrial existence is hidden via media manipulation, raising questions about alien infiltration or invasion.
