The topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials, as well as the possible extra-dimensional origins of these supposed ‘intelligences’ and craft continues to gain rapid popularity and credible disclosure within the mainstream, and that’s because of the fact that the UFO phenomenon is indeed real. These objects are spotted, photographed, recorded on video, commonly tracked on radar and observed by military pilots who are scrambled to take a closer look. This is evidence that can’t be denied, which is why  Christopher Mellon, who served 30 years in the federal government and was Deputy Assistant Defence Secretary for Intelligence from 1997  to 2002, has published detailed articles for outlets like The Hill as well as The Washington Post emphasizing the reality and seriousness of this subject. He is one of several to do so.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to see this type of UFO mainstream disclosure taking place, although it’s unfortunate that the topic, or any topic for that matter, has to be taken seriously by mainstream media for many to even take the subject seriously. This type of disclosure is well overdue given the fact that there has been a long campaign of “official secrecy and ridicule,” as stated by Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter, the very first director of the CIA. (source)

But why now? The topic of UFOs has been gaining a tremendous amount of popularity and credibility, not only from the type of sources listed above, but also from a slew of credible ‘whistleblowers’ from intelligence agents, ex-government officials, high-ranking military personnel, astronauts, an many more who have been and are disclosing this reality. There was and has been more than ample evidence to show that UFOs are real, that there are “objects in our atmosphere which are technically miles in advance of anything we can deploy.” (Lord Admiral Hill Norton, Former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee)

So again, why now?

It seems that mainstream media had no choice but to jump on the topic and attempt to control it. Like I said, mainstream coverage on the topic of UFOs is great, but one cannot help but point out the fact that mainstream media outlets, or as I like to refer to them, establishment mouthpieces, have been feeding us disinformation and misinformation since their inception. Does this mean they plan to do the same thing with UFOs?

Operation mockingbird is a great example, but it seems like it’s still going on today. Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, who was a top German journalist and editor and has been for more than two decades, went on the record stating that he was forced to publish the works of intelligence agents under his own name, also mentioning that noncompliance would result in him losing his job. William Arkin, a long-time well known military and war reporter who is best known for his Groundbreaking, three-part Washington Post series on the Black Budget in 2010 has gone public outing NBC/MSNBC as completely fake government run agencies. You can read more about that here.  There are even declassified documents that clearly show the relationship that intelligence agencies like the CIA have with mainstream media, as well as academia.

This is important to note.

Why is this important to recognize? It’s simple, because again, all we’ve seen is deception, at least for the most part, which is why it raises an eyebrow how people with backgrounds like Mellon, all of a sudden, are able to publish serious pieces in these media outlets about the topic of UFOs. What about all of the other activists, researchers and whistleblowers over the years? Why are they not receiving any attention at all? Was the UFO topic becoming so popular that ‘the powers that be’ are now simply trying to control the narrative of the subject? And if so, what are they trying to do with it? This is just speculation on my part, and I am sure on the part of many other researchers out there.

The Threat Narrative

One thing that seems to rub me the wrong way about mainstream UFO disclosure is what seems to be a constant ‘threat narrative.’ This is a phenomenon that dates back hundreds, if not thousands of years. Cases have ben documented for a very, very long time. If there was some sort of ‘extraterrestrial threat’ or a threat to national security by these objects, if they are extraterrestrial in origin, wouldn’t some type of ‘event’ have already taken place by now? Why is it that a ‘threat’ narrative always seems to accompany any type of UFO disclosure by the mainstream? Perhaps the elite want to weaponize space? Perhaps they want to present it as a threat, the same way they present terrorism as a threat? To justify immoral actions? These are all important points to consider given the fact that we’ve already been lied to and misled on so many other major topics. Why should the topic of UFOs be any different?

That being said, perhaps there is no threat type of agenda here, more on that in a bit.

This phenomenon is deep, and to anybody who is researching it knows that it’s not fair to a number of researchers and experts who have been left out of this process of mainstream disclosure. Mainstream disclosure also doesn’t address all of the information and evidence that’s piled up over the years. It’s simply, government, or perhaps, ‘deep state’ disclosure. The narrative is controlled, and despite the vastness of this subject, we are simply getting a narrowed down view of the phenomenon, whether the intentions of mainstream UFO disclosure are ‘good’ or ‘bad’ remains to be seen.

Now, I am not saying that malevolent forces from other world’s don’t exist, and I’m not saying benevolent forces don’t either. Based on all of my research over the past decade, there are no doubt some disturbing aspects that are associated with this phenomenon. The phenomenon itself, whether benevolent or malevolent, is in itself a disturbing paradigm buster for many people. There are also opposite, and uplifting factors that go hand in hand with the phenomenon as well. We as a collective are not yet ready for mass disclosure and all of its implications. If we were, it would have happened already. Perhaps it’s happening slowly at a pace that best suits human consciousness? Perhaps the ‘deep state’ or people in power aren’t control of disclosure? Perhaps we are? Perhaps ‘they’ are, perhaps it happens on ‘their’ terms, when we are ready, and not ours?

Some malevolent aspects of this phenomenon may even be connected to our own government, like abductions, for example. There are reasons to believe that a large majority of forced abduction experiences are actually government run psychological warfare experiments. In his book, “Forbidden Science 4,” Dr. Jacques Valle explains how he came in possession documents showing that forced “UFO abductions” were conducted by the CIA as psychological warfare experiments. You can read more about that here.

A former member of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Richard Doty, has also claimed the same thing. And that he was one of many who were tasked with spreading disinformation into the field. You can read more about that here. Government agencies have long infiltrated the field for the sole purpose of spreading disinformation, in order to drive researchers and investigators far away from the truth. This is something that is still happening, at large, today, in my opinion.

Is mainstream UFO disclosure part of this disinformation campaign? So far it doesn’t look like it, as they’ve done a good job bringing legitimacy to the reality of the phenomenon. But we have yet to see how far they go.

With regards to mainstream UFO disclosure, Mellon, and the organization he is a part of (Tom Delonge’s TTSA), are doing a great job of bringing awareness to a real phenomenon, however, again, the term ‘threat’ seems to be used constantly, especially by a former Pentagon official that’s part of the team, Louis Elizondo. Elizondo was part of the now disclosed Ariel Threat’s program at the Pentagon, one that tracked and kept a close watch on UFOs that entered into our atmosphere.

The New York Times broke the story about a secret Pentagon program, but any UFO researcher knows these programs are more in-depth, expensive, and expansive than anything that’s described  İn that article.

Elizondo has emphasized on multiple occasions that he believes these objects are indeed extraterrestrial in origin. In the clip linked in this sentence, he also mentioned a ‘potential threat’ multiple times.

The Threat Narrative Is Understandable, But…

This is not to say that perceiving these objects as a potential threat is not justified, but for years these objects have performed evasive manoeuvres. The fact is, from a military point of view, it’s understandable why these are perceived as a threat. It’s not illogical, after all, these objects are technologically more advanced than any air craft known to man. If something is violating air space and hovering over nuclear missile facilities, for example, which they often do, it would be irresponsible for our military not to at least consider a possible threat, at least at our current level of human consciousness.

The evasive characteristics and efforts to avoid our own aircraft has been emphasized by multiple people, like Canadian defence minister Paul Hellyer, for example, who said that these objects commonly take “corrective measures to avoid our aircraft,” and that our military tends to “shoot first and ask questions after.” (source)  Don’t forget four start General Nathan Twinning, who stated in a declassified intelligence document decades ago that,

“The phenomenon is something real and not visionary or fictitious. The reported operating characteristics such as extreme rates of climb, manoeuvrability (particularly in roll), and motion which must be considered evasive when sighted or contacted by friendly air-craft and radar, lend belief to the possibility that some of the objects are controlled either manually, automatically, or remotely.” (source)

There are a trove of declassified documented cases that also show the same thing.

We must ask ourselves, are these objects genuine threats? Have they shown themselves to be threats? Has their behaviour been indicative of any type of ‘threat’ activity?  There are some cases you could maybe argue that yes, their behaviour has been aggressive, but for the most part based on my research, there isn’t really much to base a ‘threat’ narrative off of when it comes to the examination of how these objects have been observed and recorded. There are literally, practically zero cases that represent that type of behaviour.

The way mainstream UFO disclosure stands right now, it’s not an extreme, over the top ‘threat’ type of narrative as of yet, but it’s there, no doubt, and it seems to be the only perspective that’s being pushed without considering other possibilities.

Is this being done for ulterior motives, or is it innocent? I don’t know.

Again, unidentified flying objects entering into our airspace, hovering over nuclear bases, tampering with nuclear weapons, etc, from our level of perception, it’s easy to see how this type of activity is perceived as a threat, but is there a fear mongering agenda here or is this perception simply necessary, at least from our current level of consciousness?  Is there an agenda here? Or is this just a natural expected narrative ?I’ll let you decide. There have been suggestions from people with interesting backgrounds that a threat narrative is being used for a supposed false flag alien invasion, but I’m not going to go into that here.  You can read more about it here.

The classified black budget world would have to be really advanced to pull that off, perhaps they are.

It’s also important to mention that there is no easy way to disclose the reality of this phenomenon. Mainstream UFO disclosure can’t simply burst out and hit the unawake Ned population with certain truths about this topic. It’s disturbing in many ways as it is uplifting and encouraging. There are many dimensions and aspects to this phenomenon, and it opens up countless amounts of questions that veer off into many other related fields. It’s a paradigm buster.

At the end of the day, regardless of how they are perceived by our military and our elite authority agencies, the fact remains that a large majority of cases clearly show no hostility, and are not indicative at all of any type of hostility. Sure, they may be intrusive, curious, and strange, but gain, the phenomenon seems to be older than we are, and we still have no clear signs of hostility as of yet. If anything, I’d imagine that our race is the one that ‘they’ have to be cautious of.

So, again, we have to ask ourselves, is a threat narrative being pushed? Are good people who believe we should be pre-cautious and perceive them as a threat being used to push some sort of ulterior agenda? Or is it simply ‘protocol’ to assume the ‘threat’ narrative?

The Takeaway

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this topic truly leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. It has huge implications, spiritually, technologically, historically and scientifically. The process of disclosure is long, and it won’t come from any type of authority figure, it will happen naturally, in my opinion, as time goes on and as the collective mind opens up to the fact that we are not alone in the universe, and that we have been and are being visited for a very long time.

Senate Demands UFO Disclosure From Intelligence Community As New Reports Surge

The government has all but acknowledged they are actively investigating UFO’s.

Published

UFO Disclosure

(TMU) – The intensity has been steadily growing over Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs), which are, essentially, the 21st-century version of UFOs. In recent years, surprising new reports in typically sceptical mainstream media outfits like the New York Times have carved out a fresh generation of intrigue from a once-taboo issue.

The government has all but acknowledged they are actively investigating UAPs, which suggests the phenomenon may be more than clandestine international or geopolitical military intrigue. Maybe they really don’t know what’s going on.

The website The War Zone is in the process of gathering hazard reports from the United States Air Force and the Navy. Their data, compiled from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, suggests that last year Navy pilots reported a surge in UAP encounters along the East Coast.

The hazard reports are dense in technical language and don’t exactly flow like Close Encounter of the Third Kind, but they do establish that “the concern regarding unknown aircraft operating in the warning areas is clearly growing more palpable.” 

Renewed interest in this subject has now made its way to Capitol Hill too, as last week the Senate Intelligence Committee voted in favour of mandating U.S. intelligence agencies and the Defence Department to disclose all records related to UAPs, including any “sensitive” information.

“The Committee remains concerned that there is no unified, comprehensive process within the federal government for collecting and analysing intelligence on unidentified aerial phenomena, despite the potential threat,” the committee stated, in a draft of its Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, adding:

“The Committee understands that the relevant intelligence may be sensitive; nevertheless, the Committee finds that the information sharing and coordination across the Intelligence Community has been inconsistent, and this issue has lacked attention from senior leaders.”

The measure hasn’t been adopted by the full Senate yet. If and when it does, the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defines will have 180 days to put together a report.

Most UFO/UAP theorists believe the true ‘family jewels’ of classified information on extraterrestrials to be among the most closely and tightly held national security secrets.

However, slowly but surely, the contours of the mystery are coming into sharper focus. Twenty-five new hazard reports obtained by The War Zone provide more encounters of anomalies. However, these accounts are, again, dry and fairly non-specific about the actual UAPs in question.

The War Zone, as well as fellow FOIA maven John Greenwald of The Black Vault, seems to suggest that the volume and presentation of records is being distorted. Collated from the Navy’s Web-Enabled Safety System (WESS) Aviation Mishap, the Hazard Reporting System (WAMHRS), and the Air Force Safety Automated System (AFSAS), 25 reports over six years seems curiously low to some researchers.

According to The Black Vault, the reason may be that there are secret backchannel classified systems that bypass standard reporting protocols, making them invulnerable to FOIA requests.

On June 24, 2020, The Black Vault disclosed “off the record” comments by Major Malinda Singleton, a spokesperson for the Air Force who had been designated as a UAP media contact. Speaking to Susan Gough, spokesperson for the Pentagon, Singleton issued two side notes that she did not intend to be read by the public. She wrote:

“Currently the Air Force is not working any specific guidelines for reporting UAPs. **Side note and off the record – we do have reporting instructions for Unauthorized Air Vehicles/Military Installation Airspace Violation, but that is more in the C-UAS realm. That information is provided via OPREPs on SIPR.”

Singleton also wrote:

“How do we define UAPs, it (sic) would say it is similar to the definition that DoD is already using. ** Side note and off the record – most people I talked to were aware of this term, but again we don’t have the official reporting instruction for it.”

According to The War Zone, this last comment confirms the widespread knowledge of UAPs in the DoD but, more importantly, the previous comment suggests an archive of UAP information that is subject to authorization up the chain-of-command.

John Greenwald of The Black Vault writes, “The reference Singleton added ties into a theory first proposed by Australian researcher Paul Dean. That is, that UFO cases, those that are likely not just misidentified drones or balloons, are made within what is called the Operational Reporting (OPREP) system. Specifically, Dean points out OPREP-3 reports, including subcategories 9F and 9B, as being the most significant.”

Of particular import to Greenwald is that “Singleton also added in her comment that OPREP’s would be located on SIPR, or Secret Internet Protocol Router Network. SIPR is a secure system within the Department of Defence (DOD) wherein the data on it is considered classified up to SECRET. In other words, the OPREP’s stored within SIPR are all considered sensitive information and not meant to be released to the public.”

So, in a sense, we’re back to where we started. The government has acknowledged interest in UAPs and we can read some (likely redacted) reports, but the real juicy stuff is probably still classified.

The War Zone claims it is in the midst of continued investigations into this material that they believe will further illuminate UAP/UFO encounters.

In the future, the widespread use of advanced radars, like the Infrared Search and Track Systems, could help to document new UAP cases.

UFO Photographed Near Where Mexican Air Force Had Mass Sighting

Published

Paul SeaburnGuest Writer

An interesting photo appeared this week in The Campeche Tribune showing an unidentified flying object taken while the photographer was shooting dust clouds from the Sahara Desert floating over Champotón Bay in the state of Campeche. While the photo is fairly clear despite the dust, the interesting part of the incident is that Campeche is the location of one of Mexico’s more famous UFO sightings – in 2004, Mexican Air Force pilots saw 11 UFOs and filmed them. Are these incidents related?

“I immediately took the photos and shared them in my social network. The characteristics are very similar to those of a flying saucer.”

UFO Tree
Kind of like this, only not as close

The Campeche Tribune reports that local resident Luciano Carrillo photographed the UFO (see the photo here) on June 23rd at 7:15 pm. The dust haze is clearly visible and casts a shadow on a small island in the bay, but the saucer-like UFO is reflecting light from somewhere. Unfortunately, that’s the extent of the coverage by The Campeche Tribune and no other local media seems to have picked it up.

Radar operator: “There they go, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, no, there are eight. There we are going to see them, they go to an unusual speed. One, two, three, four, five , six, seven, eight in the screen.”   Captain: “Are they at the same altitude?”   Radar operator: “Affirmative

Contrast the limited coverage of Luciano Carrillo’s UFO to that of the 11 UFOs seen and recorded by Mexican Air Force pilots on March 5, 2004. That incident and the video was reported by Mexican national news and on major news outlets around the world – CBS and Fox reported on it in the U.S. The objects were said to be flying at an altitude of 11,500 feet and the Air Force C-26 A crew claimed that they followed them and were surrounded by them, but the objects disappeared when they stopped the pursuit. Their speeds were said to have increased from 180 kph (112 mph) to 540 kph (335 mph) in seconds. The C-26A is a small plane and the crew was using it to search for drug smugglers. (You can see the entire video here).

“I couldn’t say what it was … but I think they’re completely real.”

After hearing testimony like that from Lt. Mario Adrian Vazquez, the infrared equipment operator who recorded the UFOs, Mexico’s Defence Department released the video, the audio and the interviews, confirming the objects were unidentified. (Those were the days.) The news prompted celebrations from those who believed this was evidence of alien visitation, while sceptics suggested they were ball lightning (unlikely at that altitude), meteor fragments (kind of slow for that) or flares from oil rigs in the bay (kind of high for that too).

What other explanation could there have been for these UFOs? The location is about 1000 km (620 miles) from the Popocatapetl volcano where many UFO sightings have been reported. The bay off the coast of Campeche contains underwater asphalt volcanoes, but those aren’t known to attract UFOs. One other thing that wasn’t known by the public at the time but is well known now – UFOs would be seen and recorded later in 2004 by US Navy pilots attached to the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz. Was there ever an investigation into whether those two incidents may have been related? If there was, there don’t seem to be any public records of them, nor any follow-up of the Mexican Air Force sighting.

Which brings us back to the latest one. It’s unlikely there will be any government looks at Luciano Carrillo’s photo. It will probably be examined by UFOlogists for evidence of CGI tampering.

Military UFO sightings should get more investigation and probably do. Yet the public rarely gets to see the results. Whether you like the popular investigators and reporters in the UFO world or not, they’re at least keeping the incidents in the public eye, which is keeping pressure on the governments to disclose.

One of these days …

UFOs, A Secret Project, And The U.K. Ministry Of Defense

Published

Nick Redfern, Guest Writer

May 2006 was the date on which a remarkable revelation of the UFO type surfaced. It demonstrated that the U.K.’s Ministry of Defence has a remarkable (and a secret) interest in ball lightning and plasmas – and potentially using them as weapons, no less. It was a revelation that made UFO researchers all across the world sit up and listen and look. For a number of years, it was disclosed, the U.K.’s Ministry of Defence had been secretly working on a UFO program. I must make it clear, however, that it wasn’t the kind of project that had dead aliens and crashed UFOs – as per Roswell – at its heart. In fact, it had zero to do with such things. Nevertheless, the disclosure was stunning, all the same. Between 1996 – when the operation began – and February 2000, when the project was completed, the MoD had been carefully and quietly investigating the UFO puzzle. The program’s official title was Unidentified Aerial Phenomena in the UK Air Defence Region. Unofficially, it went by the far less lengthy name of Project Condign.

It was due to the U.K.’s Freedom of Information Act that the Report surfaced – and with thanks to the investigations of UFO researchers Dr. David Clarke and Gary Anthony. The pair worked hard to try and get the report released. That work eventually paid off. The 465-pages-long report was a fascinating one. Despite the fact that the MoD always maintained it had very little interest in UFOs, the sheer length and depth of the report showed that this was, at the very least, a misunderstanding. Or, at the other extreme, an outright lie. A great deal of focus was placed on the author of the report. His name remained hidden behind closed doors for quite a few years. But, nothing stays hidden forever. And that applies here. The elderly man was a Dr. Ron Haddow

In 2006, Haddow wrote an adventure-driven novel titled No Weapon Forged. It was reviewed in that same year by John Nicholls, who was writing for Testimony Magazine. In part, Nicholls noted that Haddow “spent the early part of his life in the Royal Air Force, both in flying and in testing the first airborne digital equipment to enter RAF service. His work then changed to teaching radar, electronic warfare, air defines and guided weapons, with special reference to Middle East warfare.” Nicholls continued that Haddow, “continued in research and design of equipment, and later became a Senior Advisor to a NATO Industrial Advisory Group work on future defences…”  Without a doubt, that’s quite a body of work.

For years, the U.K. UFO research community sought to find out who it was that wrote Project Condign. A good friend of mine, Irene Bott, almost got to the heart of that mystery in the late 1990s. From 1996 to 2000, Irene ran the U.K.-based Staffordshire UFO Group. On one particular day while I was hanging out at Irene’s then-home, she put a call in to the Ministry of Defence. The purpose was to inquire about a UFO incident that she was looking into at the time. For reasons that still remain fully unclear to this day, Irene was transferred by the MoD operator who answered her call not to the MoD’s “UFO desk” that Nick Pope previously ran, but to none other than Ron Haddow. Documentation now in the public domain shows that Haddow and his colleagues were deeply concerned by this spectacular error. That Haddow actually spoke with Irene hardly impressed the Ministry of Defence, as the now-declassified documents on the Haddow-Bott conversation show. By all accounts, the whole thing caused a fair degree of concern within the MoD. And for Haddow, too. Just another day in the weird, intrigue-filled world of UFOs and government.

Trump Says He’s Heard ‘Interesting’ Things About Aliens, Will ‘Think About’ Declassifying Info

President Donald Trump has claimed that he’s heard some “interesting” things about aliens as well as the secretive Area 51 base in Roswell, New Mexico.

(TMU) – President Donald Trump has claimed that he’s heard some “interesting” things about aliens as well as the secretive Area 51 base in Roswell, New Mexico, that some theorists claim is a UFO crash site.

The president was been extremely vague about details – and even withheld the information from his eldest child, Don Trump Jr.

The comments were made Thursday during a Father’s Day-themed interview with Don Jr. that was held for the president’s re-election campaign, reports NBC News.

Don Jr., who is apparently just as interested as the rest of us in what transpired at Area 51 during the alleged UFO crash in 1947, wound down the interview by asking his father, “Before you leave office, will you let us know if there are aliens?”

“Because this is the only thing I really want to know. Would you ever open up Roswell and let us know what’s really going on?”

However, Trump responded in a guarded way, protecting the seemingly classified information.

“So many people ask me that question,” Trump said. “There are millions and millions of people who want to go there [Roswell] and see it.”

I won’t talk to you about what I know about it, but it’s very interesting,” he continued. “Roswell is a very interesting place – there’s a lot of people who would like to know what’s going on.”

Don Jr. then responded by asking if his father would consider eventually declassifying the information, to which the president responded: “Well, I’ll have to think about that one.”

President Donald Trump on Roswell and UFOs – June 18, 2020

Area 51 was created amid the Cold War rivalry with the Soviet Union as a top-secret research and development site for aircraft such as the U-2 spy plane and other then-cutting-edge platforms.

Conspiracy theorists and ufologists have claimed that an alien spacecraft crash-landed just outside Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, after a rancher found mysterious debris in a pasture used by his sheep. Officials of the U.S. Air Force responded at the time that only a weather balloon had crashed – a claim that hardly convinced UFO enthusiasts, even after the Pentagon admitted that the debris was related to a top-secret atomic warfare project.

Since then, some claim that the base houses everything from alien spacecraft to extraterrestrial pilots’ corpses and other technology – speculation that has been fed by popular culture and the fact that the U.S. government didn’t actually confirm the base’s existence until 2013.

Last June, Trump said that he was briefed on UFOs but revealed that he was quite sceptical about their existence, saying: “People are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particularly.”

Trump says he doesn’t particularly believe in UFOs

Last September, however, the U.S. Navy admitted that widely-circulated video footage captured by Navy pilots that purportedly showed UFOs flying through the skies did depict actual “unknown” objects that flew into U.S. airspace.

While officials admitted that they have been baffled by the unknown flying objects, they also admit that past encounters with them have been frequent. They also said that rather than calling them “UFOs,” they prefer the term “unidentified aerial phenomena” or UAPs.

The videos were eventually declassified in April, to which Trump responded: “I just wonder if it’s real. That’s a hell of a video.”
