Mainstream News Coverage Of UFOs Raises Alarming Questions About Disclosure



UFO in tunnel

It’s been a weird couple years for UFO research and speculation. We’re closing out a decade that has heard the drum beat for Disclosure—the long-sought declassifying of government knowledge of extraterrestrial visitations—grow intensely in certain “fringe” circles while the vast majority of mainstream scientists continue to express resolute scepticism. But is that facade slowly cracking? Recently, a series of puzzling and consistent reports began to appear in mainstream news outlets suggesting that our very own government’s employees may be far more interested in—and confused by—UFOs than previously thought.

First, there landed the now well-known December 2017 article in the New York Times about the Defence Department’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which for the first time featured official government acknowledgment of on-going Pentagon research into UFOs. This dovetailed with the declassification of a massive trove of hundreds of thousands of CIA documents detailing decades of Cold War-era government research into UFOs—or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), as they are more commonly referred to these days.

Even more researchers have come forward, including billionaire entrepreneur and UFO enthusiast Robert Bigelow, who had received funding from his friend and then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid so that Bigelow’s aerospace research company could investigate UAPs.

In a 60 Minutes interview, Bigelow stated: “There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence.”

Luis Elizondo, who for years was the man in charge of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, provided further testimony that Big Think called “shocking” and a “historical inflection point in our attitudes regarding UFOs.”

If we rewind back to 2016, we can marvel over the Year of Oumuamua, the name given to “a mysterious, cigar-shaped interstellar object (that) fell through our solar system at an extraordinary speed.” The comet—the first known interstellar object to pass through our solar system—possessed such a confoundingly anomalous shape, size, trajectory and composition that scientists could not rule out its being an artificial extraterrestrial craft being propelled by solar sails.

Now, a newly published New York Times article reveals that, during the years of 2014 and 2015, Navy pilots were documenting daily UFO sightings and encounters. The article features these pilots making their claims on the record, a somewhat unusual feat. The article reads:

“The strange objects, one of them like a spinning top moving against the wind, appeared almost daily from the summer of 2014 to March 2015, high in the skies over the East Coast. Navy pilots reported to their superiors that the objects had no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes, but that they could reach 30,000 feet and hypersonic speeds.

These things would be out there all day,” said Lt. Ryan Graves, an F/A-18 Super Hornet pilot who has been with the Navy for 10 years, and who reported his sightings to the Pentagon and Congress. ‘Keeping an aircraft in the air requires a significant amount of energy. With the speeds we observed, 12 hours in the air is 11 hours longer than we’d expect.’

Many are quick to point out that these sightings could easily be glimpses of man-made (possibly top-secret government technology) drones or other aerial craft. The Washington Post even points out that the New York Times reporters “are not saying that these UFOs are extraterrestrials, but they are trying to destigmatize the reporting of a UFO.”

However, as mainstream articles on UFOs—something that was unthinkable earlier this century—grow increasingly audacious with their claims, it’s worth considering what this trend is building towards. The more we learn about trained Navy pilots observing unidentified craft executing near-impossible makeovers at hypersonic speeds, it’s worth considering what Disclosure would really look like in our media landscape, in which corporate news often acts as an echo chamber for the State Department.

If the government were trying to come clean about something utterly shocking and revolutionary that they knew was destined to become public knowledge, would they do it all at once or would they do it piecemeal, in a controlled drip over the course of many years—a slow-moving coup, so to speak—using their media levers to control the narrative and manage our reaction?

Extraterrestrial Beings Visiting Earth Is Something For Us To Discover – Not Government To Announce



Extraterrestrial Beings Visiting Earth Is Something For Us To Discover – Not Government To Announce

UFOs and the idea that some of them are piloted by extraterrestrial beings are no longer taboo subjects. UFOs have officially left the sphere of ‘conspiracy theory.’ That term is used today mostly when people’s beliefs are challenged, no matter how clear the evidence may be. But can we really blame them? For years, we’ve been bombarded with the idea that it’s silly to believe such things; in fact, the very first director of the CIA, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, told the world that there was actually an “official campaign of ridicule and secrecy.”

That was decades ago, and since then one thing has become abundantly clear, and that’s the fact that the UFO problem has involved military personnel and more from around the world for more than 70 years now. The subject is wrapped in secrecy.

A great quote comes to mind here from European filmmaker Terje Toftenes, who put out a documentary about the extraterrestrial presence many years ago. In it, he shares a thought that really makes one think.

“Lord Kelvin’s statement bears with it the voice of paradigms past… We knew that we were the centre of the universe, and we knew that a man-made heavier than air piece of machinery could not take flight. Through all stages of human history, intellectual authorities have pronounced their supremacy by ridiculing or suppressing elements of reality that simply didn’t fit within the framework of accepted knowledge. Are we really any different today? Have we really changed our acceptance towards things that won’t fit the frame? Maybe there are concepts of our reality we have yet to understand, and if we open our eyes maybe we will see that something significant has been overlooked.” – Terje Toftenes (source)

It’s been nearly ten years since his film was made, and having worked in this field for quite some time, it’s truly mind altering just how much the collective mind has opened up to the possibility that we’ve been visited by extraterrestrial beings.

We are in a process, and there is a reason why “are we alone” is one of the biggest questions ever pondered by humanity. We are naturally inclined to discover, wonder, and ponder, at least most of us are. No doubt our way of life has shifted from discovery, one quality out of many that represents the natural state of a human being, into a robotic life focusing on our jobs, career, family, and providing. The systems we have in place here on our planet are not conducive to our natural state, and human beings no doubt have the potential to create something much greater that is both in harmony with us and our planet.

The process of disclosing the reality that we are not alone–that we have and are being visited–is simply a reflection of human consciousness. It’s occurring because there are people all over the world who are contemplating and searching for the answers to this phenomena, and it’s the result of more people doing their own research instead of allowing an untrustworthy entity to provide the answers for them.

The process of disclosure, especially within the past 10 years, has been greatly assisted by evidence. There are peer-reviewed scientific studies examining this phenomenon, there are photographs, videos, witnesses, high ranking military testimonies, and aerospace executives, academics, astronauts and many more all sharing their proof, evidence, and knowledge showing that not only are UFOs real, but many of them are piloted by ‘people’ that do not originate from planet Earth as well. There are also millions of pages of documents on the subject that’ve been released by dozens of governments.

Dr. Brian O’Leary once said, “There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time.” Apollo 14 Astronaut, Dr. Edgar Mitchell told the world, “yes, there have been crashed crafts and bodies recovered” and that “there is no doubt that we are being visited.”

Many of these objects are tracked on radars, and again, have been photographed and video taped for years. For example, here is a photo taken by two Royal Canadian Air Force pilots on August 27th, 1956, in McCleod, Alberta, Canada. (“Physical Evidence Related To UFO Reports” – The Sturrock Panel Report – Electromagnetic Effects) (source) (source)

The evidence is truly overwhelming, and undeniable.

Of course this begs the question, why don’t ‘they’ just show up en masse? Well, perhaps there are still many things we don’t understand. Perhaps ‘they’ have trouble communicating with us, as we do with other species. Perhaps they are afraid and prefer their presence not to be known. Perhaps there are multiple groups out there with multiple motives and agendas, some malevolent, some benevolent, and perhaps there are many who are simply exploring and minding their own business.

Why has this subject been shrouded in secrecy? The answer to that is simple: We are a controlled race, and we don’t have our sh*t together here on Earth. If we did, we’d probably already be a space faring race. UFO technology threatens that in a number of ways, from ‘free energy’ to the destruction of current belief systems about the true nature of reality. The extraterrestrial phenomena could perhaps reveal to humanity something about ourselves that would completely change worldview paradigms–there are a number of implications.

The point is that we are asking questions, our minds are opening, and we are going through a process. Our civilization is very young, and no doubt other civilizations out there had to go through what we are going through before they themselves became a space faring race.

There are still many questions to ask, and a lot of discoveries to be made. We are currently in the beginning of this long yet rapid process that will change our world forever. Perhaps the biggest lesson of ‘looking out there’ is to encourage us to look within, at our own planet, and ask ourselves: What exactly are we doing here, and what is going on?

The awareness of the extraterrestrial presence is also coinciding with many other transitions and awakenings the human race is becoming privy to. We are waking up to deception on all fronts–we are opposing a heightened national security state where the goal seems to be total population control, we are becoming more aware and in tune with our planet and the fact that there are much better ways to operate here on Earth that are more harmonious to all life, and we are becoming aware that we have been deceived on so many levels and on so many topics.

We are waking up.

Sure, official extraterrestrial ‘disclosure’ may never happen, and that’s because it’s a process. We are the discoverers of something that was perhaps already known by our great ancient ancestors. After all, they wrote about it and told many stories about travellers from other places.

Do you really think we are alone? What does your intuition tell you? Have you looked into it? Have you gone through the evidence and seen how strong it is?

The only things holding us back from knowing are our long held beliefs, which are always hard to let go of in light of new information and evidence. As I said, it’s a process.

The Takeaway

The realization that we are not alone is not one that will come in the form of an announcement from a government authority. In fact, it’s a lesson in how we do not need to wait for authoritative figures to tell us what is and what isn’t correct. Too often, we see deception from authoritative figures, and more people are starting to realize that it’s time to rely on their own thinking instead of letting someone else do it for them.

This realization also leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. It has spiritual implications, all the way to technological and scientific implications, and much more. It really opens up pandora’s box, and we haven’t even begun to scrape the tip of the iceberg.

University Mathematician Decodes The Crop Circle With A Binary Code & Extraterrestrial Face



University Mathematician Decodes The Crop Circle With A Binary Code & Extraterrestrial Face

Did you know that crop circles are actually real? How they’re made and who or what is making them is up for debate, but the existence of intricate, remarkable and very complex designs that are “sown” into crop fields all around the world is a fact that’s not open for debate. Looking at some of these designs, especially footage taken from a plane or a helicopter, should give you goosebumps.

Why? Richard Taylor, a physicist from the University of Oregon, outlines it best. Despite ridiculing any type of ‘supernatural’ explanation for these designs, he states that this is “the most science-oriented art movement in history.” It’s also interesting to note that many of these designs have been studied in a laboratory setting, as some of the nodes of these stalks are blasted out on one side. Not many people know this about crop circles, but the crops are not simply flattened. It’s quite clear that some sort of high level technology is being used. (source)

This ‘blasting’ effect has been replicated by highly localized microwave heating, which causes water inside the crop to vaporize and dislodge. As a result, the stock flops completely over to one side. Because of this, Taylor concludes that crop circle artists are using GPS devices, lasers, and microwaves to create these astonishing patterns of geometric forms due to the measurements he found in his research.

There will always be those who reject some sort of supernatural hypothesis, but for those who actually look deeper into the crop circle phenomenon, it’s hard to argue that something strange isn’t happening. Personally, I would say it’s obvious.

The crop circle you see above appeared in 2002 in a field near Crabwood, United Kingdom. Yes, it was real. It’s been filmed, documented and photographed. There is footage all over the internet. It made a lot of noise as it’s documented in the Crop Circle archives and has been researched by multiple scholars all over the world.  Here is some great helicopter footage of the Crabwood circle with Terje Toftenes, an award-winning Norwegian filmmaker and video producer.

HERE is some more astonishing helicopter footage taken by the photographer of the photos posted below, Lucy Pringle. You can see people standing in the crop circle here as well, it’s quite detailed footage.

Who could do something like this? Who could design a binary code and implant a face within a crop in the dead of night in only a few hours, leaving no entrance or exit marks, while being artistically and mathematically precise?

Miia Pitkonen is one of many scholars who have examined this particular circle. She is a physicist from the University of Helsinki in Finland, specializing in medical physics. You can view his curriculum vitae here.

Clearly, she has an interest in this phenomenon because she published a paper titled “Crop Circles and Life at Parallel Space-Time Sheets.” It’s a two part series, and in it he examines the Crapwood crop circle. (source)

She explains:

“Crabwood message consists of two parts. An alien picture and a picture representing spiral like bit sequence starting from the centre of the picture and proceeding counter clockwise. It has been proposed [59, 60] that the message is coded using 9-bit code and that 8-bit portions obey ASCII code. With this assumption the message reads as:

Beware the bearers of FALSE gifts & their BROKEN PROMISES. Much PAIN but still time. EELI!UVE. There is GOOD out there. We OPpose DECEPTION. Conduit CLOSING\’

Obviously there are one or two incomprehensible words involved (EELI!UVE). There are also two variants of the message in the net. OPpose appears at Paul Vigay’s homeopage and Oppose at at Martin Keitel’s homeopage. In the following both options are considered. One could consider the possibility that the message has much deeper layer than the somewhat oracle-like statement in ASCII code, and that the presence of the little inconsistency might be intended to make clear that a deeper level is involved. What these aliens would like to communicate is something very essential about themselves as a life form. The image of an alien accompanying the bit sequence indeed suggests this. This something very essential could obviously include the code for translating ordinary DNA triplets to amino-acids. Perhaps also the code for translating the exotic RNA doublets to the analogs of amino-acids. These analogs could be even electromagnetic waves. There could be also other codes: just at the time when the Crabwood message had arrived I developed entire hierarchy of cognitive codes based on Mersenne primes and regular polygons constructible using only compass and ruler. The first guess is that the message should be represented by some universal code. The appearance of 3 × 3 = 9-bit code words decomposing naturally to 3 sequences of 3-bits suggests that a cognitive code consistent with genetic code might be involved. This guess was very useful in that it led to the identification of the genetic code of exotic RNA and the decomposition of 3 3-bit portions also suggests immediately that information about RNA is in question. It however turned out that ASCII code is the proper manner to interpret the message, ninth bit serves as a separation sign only. The interpretation relies on extremely general aspects of the ASCII code: capital and small letters correspond to amino-acids and capital and small forms of a given letter denote for the same amino-acid. Control signs denote the amino-acidic counterparts for the code associated with the exotic RNA. The ordering of the symbols does not matter. One could also use different kinds of symbols: only the numbers of various kinds of symbols telling how many code words are mapped to a particular amino-acid (or whatever counterpart of it) matter.”

It’s quite complicated, I know. Paul Vigay, a British computer consultant notable for work in developing and supporting RISC OS software and long-time researcher in the field, was the first to discover that the message was encoded in ASCI binary code. He also worked with Mel Gibson on the film Signs, but unfortunately died a very mysteries death.

“Beware the bearers of false gifts and their broken promises. Much pain but still time. (Damaged word.) There is good out there. We oppose deception. Conduit closing (bell sound).”

Below is another great screen shot taken by a helicopter.

Pitkonen’s paper is quite in-depth and states that the makers of this circle, whoever/whatever they are, could be using this type of specific code, and much more. One thing is for certain: Whoever made this circle is extremely artistically, technologically, and mathematically advanced to a point beyond belief.

Below is a screenshot of the last part of her paper expressing the same conclusion that many of us have come to, the realization that something amazing is going on here.

Pitkonen, in her paper, also goes into great detail and analysis regarding a broadcast (known as the “Arecibo” message) that was put together by Carl Sagan and his colleagues in 1974. It was sent into space via radio waves at a special ceremony to celebrate the remodelling of the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico. It was the most powerful broadcast ever deliberately beamed out into space. Directed at a star cluster sitting approximately 25,000 light years away, it consisted of a pictorial message depicting our planet’s location in our solar system, the core principles of our math and science, and the NASA antenna used to transmit the signal in the hopes that it would be interpreted by an extraterrestrial intelligence. The message also included details about human beings, such as our physical appearance and DNA code. The signal was a million times stronger than the typical TV transmission.

27 years later, in 2001, the crop circle phenomenon gained some well-deserved attention when a pattern in the form of a response to the 1974 broadcast appeared right next to Britain’s largest telescope, the Chilbolton, and observatory, home to the world’s largest fully steerable meteorological radar.

The Takeaway

Why are such discoveries and phenomena ridiculed in the mainstream? And when the mainstream does engage in a discussion about the crop circle phenomenon, why don’t they address the facts presented in this article? Why are these considered to be hoaxes when some of the designs are so complicated, precise and complex that they baffle some of the world’s greatest minds? What’s going on here?

There are facts about our reality that are so mind-altering that the human mind, in many cases, will instantly dismiss them. On a collective level, clearly we are all not ready to examine this phenomenon, and no matter how much evidence is in support of it, it always be greeted with ridicule and skepticism.

Something extraordinary is happening here, and it has been happening for years. It could have tremendous implications for humanity as we continue to slowly but surely open our minds to concepts that do not yet fit within the framework of accepted knowledge.

First Contact: What If We Find Alien Life?



First Contact: What If We Find Alien Life?

If we’re going to spend time and resources searching for extraterrestrial life, we should know what happens when we make alien contact.

Over two decades ago, the first alien planet was detected orbiting another sun. We’ve since spotted more exoplanets, but no discovery has caused a stir quite like the star KIC 8462852 (also known as Tabby’s Star). The odd nature of this alien solar system came to light in September 2015 when astronomers were using Kepler to look for dips in the star’s brightness caused by any orbiting planets passing across its face.

Given that stars are enormous, and planets much smaller by comparison, these fluctuations are usually tiny. Even a Jupiter-sized planet passing in front of a star like the Sun only results in a 1% change. And yet astronomers saw KIC 8462852’s brightness plummeting by up to 22%. Nothing like it had ever been seen before.

What rocketed the find into the news was the fact that some commentators suggested aliens might be responsible for the drop. Since it was too big to be caused by a single planet, some theorised huge mega structures created by an intelligent civilisation might be blotting out the star’s light. They imagined the dimming could be caused by vast banks of solar panels orbiting the star.

Of course there were other, far less fantastic explanations – some said it was likely that a huge swathe of comets was collectively blocking our view. Louisana State University’s Bradley Schaefer disagrees.

After poring over data, he found that the dimming has been going on for more than a century. His calculations show that nearly 650,000 giant comets would have had to pass by the planet during this time to create the recorded patterns, something he’s dubbed “completely implausible”.

The astronomers behind the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) project pointed the radio dishes of the Allen Telescope Array at the star, just in case they could hear something. “We found no indication of an extraterrestrial civilisation at the other end of the telescope,” says SETI’s Douglas Vakoch.

If KIC 8462852 turns out to be a dead end, it’ll be the latest in a line of blanks. Ever since astronomer Frank Drake undertook the first SETI experiment in 1960, we’ve detected no signals that we can definitively say are alien in origin. But that may be about to change.

A Bigger, Better Search For Alien Life

In summer 2015, the late Stephen Hawking and Russian entrepreneur Yuri Milner launched Breakthrough Listen, a 10-year, $100m (£66.5m) project billed as the biggest scientific search ever undertaken for signs of intelligent life, which kicked off in February 2016.

Utilising two of the biggest radio telescopes on the planet – the 100m Green Bank Telescope in the US and the 64m Parkes Telescope in Australia – it’ll be more than 50 times as sensitive as previous searches and will cover 10 times more of the sky. It will also listen over a frequency range five times greater than before and will scan through them 100 times as fast. It will eavesdrop on the million closest stars and 100 nearest galaxies for any sniff of civilisation. The search will be sensitive enough to pick up the equivalent of aircraft radar on any of the 1,000 closest stars to Earth.

Along with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerburg, the pair also announced Project Starshot, which will send tiny rockets to search for habitable planets in Alpha Centauri, our nearest solar system.

The fact that Milner is prepared to spend such a vast sum on hunting for aliens shows just how far we’ve come. We now live in the era of exoplanet astronomy, with more than 4,000 confirmed alien worlds beyond the Galaxy. From what we’ve found so far, astronomers estimate there could be 60 billion potentially habitable planets in our Milky Way.

A famous equation formulated by Frank Drake – the Drake Equation – suggests some of them may host to intelligent life. That’s a rich seam to mine. “The search doesn’t appear as futile as in the past,” says the University of Portsmouth’s Bob Nichol, a member of the UK SETI Research Network.

As well as searching for radio signals, they will also look out for laser transmissions. But with all this excitement about detecting future alien signals, what will we do if we find something?

Confirming First Contact

Should we pick up an alien signal, the first hurdle to leap is being able to show definitively that it doesn’t come from anything else.

“To start with, you’d have to put a low probability on it being alien,” says the University of St Andrews’ Duncan Forgan. Once other possibilities have been ruled out, he believes there are important checks that must be carried out. “The first is whether it’s reproducible,” he says.

If a signal is just a one-off then it’s hard to tell anything about it. This is well illustrated by the Wow! signal heard in August 1977. The intense burst of radio waves lasted for 72 seconds and was very close to the frequency that SETI researchers believe an alien civilisation might choose to communicate at. When astronomer Jerry Ehman first saw the signal on a printout from the Big Ear radio telescope in Ohio, he wrote ‘Wow!’ next to it in red ink.

But despite various efforts since, no repeat signal has ever been heard coming from that part of the sky. If a repeat is found, you can confirm it is coming from another planet by the way that planet’s motion affects the signal. “There should be a measurable shift in its spectrum due to the velocity of the planet around the star compared to us,” says Forgan.

If the discoverer(s) of the signal cannot find anything to rule out aliens, they’ll then throw it open to others teams of astronomers who will do their best to prove it isn’t from ET. “Any suspected signal would become the subject of extreme scrutiny,” says Forgan.

If extraterrestrial technology remains the most plausible explanation then, according to the official ETI Signal Detection protocol, that information should be passed to the UN Secretary General as well as a host of other international organisations. The frequency at which the signal was heard will be protected to keep that channel free from any other radio clutter, and no reply is to be sent until an international consensus on the matter has been reached.

Details of the discovery will be spread rapidly to the general population through the usual media channels, and the person or persons who discovered the signal will tell the world themselves.

It is all well and good confirming an artificial signal from an alien race elsewhere in the cosmos, but if it is a deliberate message rather some eavesdropped technological hum, how will we know what it says? After all, they are unlikely to be fluent in any Earth language. But civilisations within a few tens of light-years of Earth would have received a few decades’ worth of radio signals from Earth, so perhaps they could package up their message in a way they know we’d understand.

Alternatively, it’s been suggested that mathematics might be the language of choice for interstellar chit-chat. Initial contact could be made by beaming out a radio message encoding the list of prime numbers or the Fibonacci sequence. Once both sides know they both speak the same language – maths – you could use binary numbers to send more detailed messages such as pictures. So we’d search any potential message for mathematical structure.

Should We Call Back?

If we do find alien life and start up a conversation, what impact would that have on the wider population? One insight comes from a 1999 survey by The Roper Organization on behalf of the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS). When asked how they would cope psychologically with confirmed news of an advanced extraterrestrial civilisation, 32% of respondents said they were “fully prepared to handle it” and 17% said they would “rethink their place in the Universe”.

However, when asked how they thought others would respond, 25% said “most people would totally freak out and panic” and 10% said most others would “act irrationally and become dangerous to others”.

“Much would depend on the contents of the message,” says Forgan. Clearly, detecting the existence of advanced alien technology on a far distant planet is different from an aggressive message threatening imminent invasion. A 1997 survey found that 84% of respondents believed aliens would turn out to be friendly rather than hostile.

Perhaps we can learn something about our reaction to extraterrestrial aggression from Orson Welles’ famous War Of The Worlds broadcast in 1938. The radio version of the HG Wells story was said to be so realistic that many people mistook it as factual and believed aliens were really invading. While reports of mass hysteria were overblown, the same cannot be said when a Spanish version was broadcast in Ecuador in 1949. Crazed crowds took to the streets and at least six people ended up dead.

Should the message not threaten imminent invasion, the thorniest question we’d have to confront is whether or not to send a return message. It’s a topic that currently divides astronomers.

“I was recently at a meeting of UK SETI scientists and there was a quick straw poll. The room was split exactly in half,” says Forgan. He doesn’t believe we should be sending out any kind of deliberate message into space. “I don’t think it’s a good idea to speak to someone when you have no idea who they are,” he says. “I’m not convinced we should be advertising the human race at this point in our existence.”

This is a particular issue if we’ve just eavesdropped on another civilisation without them explicitly sending us a message. They might have no idea of our existence. This hasn’t stopped astronomers before, however. The Arecibo message, for example, was beamed towards the star cluster M13 in 1974. It contained fairly intimate details of who we are and where we can be found.

Now that our search for extraterrestrial intelligence is about to move up a level thanks to Breakthrough Listen, these are questions we are going to have to grapple with properly. There may be rules for how scientists should deal with any suspected signal; what the rest of us should do and how we’re going to feel if that day ever comes is anyone’s guess. But it’s certainly an exciting time to be a citizen of the cosmos.

900,000 People Sign Up To Storm Area 51 & They Have An Unbelievable Plan!



Over A Million People Expected To Sign Up To Storm Area 51 & They Have An Unbelievable Plan!

For as long as humans have contemplated the cosmos, we have wondered if we are alone in the universe. And we might be closer than ever to finding out the answer to this question as 900K of an unarmed and not-remotely-dangerous army of keyboard warriors are ‘planning’ to storm Area 51 and they have a plan.

Let’s face it; there is more evidence for the existence of UFOs than there is evidence for many things humanity accepts as 100% real!

This evidence comes in the forms of actual military and commercial radar tracking of UFOs, videos and pictures of UFOs that have been released by multiple governments and statements from hundreds of the highest ranking military personnel from across the world about UFOs being far more technologically capable than any aircraft on Earth. You can read more of that here.

The event, titled “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” is inviting users from around the world to join a “Naruto run” — a Japanese manga-inspired running style featuring arms outstretched backwards and heads forward — into the area.

The main objectives: liberate the ‘captured’ aliens, maybe bag yourself a new alien bae, hotwire a sweet UFO vehicle and integrate extra-terrestrial beings into modern day society. Nice!

It’s a mission likely to go unaccomplished, and yet 900,000 people are getting ready to finally uncover the secrets of the USA’s biggest alien conspiracy theories once and for all.

Although, some may go rogue and adopt their own fighting style…

The ‘Storm Area 51’ mission has now gone viral and is trending on Twitter. And the memes are flooding in thick and fast.

One alien enthusiast has already planned to go official with his new ‘alien boo’

Unofficial soldiers include hip-hop legend and the extremely nimble MC Hammer, who tweeted:
