According to Gordon Duff, senior editor of Veterans Today, intelligence sources are revealing that hostile extraterrestrials are militarily engaging with world naval forces. In an article, provocatively titled, “UFO War: Chinese and US Navy off San Francisco,” Duff claims that the Chinese navy is lending assistance to the US in battling these hostile forces in what looks like a real life version of the recent movie Battleship. Duff claims that his intelligence sources are Asian, and that US naval forces are stretched thin in the Pacific due to a beefed up naval presence in the Persian Gulf. Duff admits that the story stretches credibility but that his source is usually reliable, thereby raising the possibility that either the story is largely accurate and/or officially sanctioned disinformation. Are we being prepared for an alien false flag invasion?

Duff is a former Marine and has been very outspoken in exposing the misuse of government power and authority. Veterans Today is a highly popular newsblog taking on many controversial topics not covered by the mainstream media. It includes former senior military officers on its international Board of Directors. So it was very surprising to see Veteran’s Today on Monday leading with Duff’s attention grabbing headline and article. Duff claims:

This last week, reports of Chinese naval vessels off the US coast, Northern Californian in particular, have been reported but denied. Now an Asian intelligence agency reports that a combined fleet operation between the US and China has been going on, a full combat operation against what we are told is a “highly unfriendly extra-terrestrial threat.” The verifications of the fleet operations have been many, there have been no confirmations from the US side though the ships have been seen by every vessel that makes it offshore.  The true nature of both the threat and the extent of the multinational military force used is beyond any imaginable classification level.

The claim that a multinational military force is battling a UFO threat off the coast of San Francisco appears to be circumstantially supported by unusually high US naval activity in the region. Duff claims that no US military sources are confirming these events. He refers to a classified memo that apparently is being circulated to only a small group of need-to-know officials. Duff claims the memo mentions:

  • Opposition is extraterrestrial and extremely aggressive and unfriendly
  • The threat represents a “clear and present danger” and is isolated to the Pacific Basin
  • China is forced to carry US responsibility because our own naval capability is sitting in the Persian Gulf when America is under a very real threat.
  • Attempts to seek confirmations or to directly verify these operations will lead to fatal consequences.

In his conclusion Duff writes: “I either have to give this a 70% or reclassify a reliable official source as purposefully leaking something that makes no sense.” 

In the swirl of rumors surrounding UFO naval incidents described in Duff’s article, it’s clear that some intelligence agency is depicting extraterrestrials as hostile. This goes against the evidence accumulated over more than six decades that extraterrestrials have been peacefully engaging with governments and private citizens to raise consciousness, share advanced technologies, and prevent nuclear warfare. While the abduction phenomenon rightly raises concerns over the emotional and psychological impact of some extraterrestrial activities, it’s rare to hear of citizens being physically injured. While it is always possible that a new faction of extraterrestrials may have recently arrived that are indeed hostile, it’s more likely that the incidents Duff describes are part of a psychological warfare program. The goal is to firmly establish UFOs and extraterrestrial life as issues belonging to the national security domain, rather than to international diplomacy.

An alien false flag event – a contrived extraterrestrial invasion using advanced technologies – would ensure that public awareness of evidence concerning alien life is skewed towards national security concerns. Viewing extraterrestrials as hostile, intent on overcoming the world’s military forces, would justify national security policies that would further erode constitutional principles in the USA. More importantly, it would sideline international organizations such as the United Nations intent on promoting diplomatic solutions to international crises.

Rumors of a false flag alien date back to the “Report from Iron Mountain” document first released in the early 1960s and published in 1967. Dr Werner Von Braun later confided to a close colleague that a false flag alien invasion was indeed been planned by corporate entities along with their national security agency partners. An alien false flag event would be the ultimate way in which national security agencies and their multinational corporate partners could engineer government policies that increase their respective power, and maintain the secrecy of an extensive number of classified programs that are funded by a quasi-legal black budget. What Duff describes in his article, and parallels with the recent Battleship movie, has the tell-tale characteristics of a psychological warfare program to prepare the general public for a false flag alien invasion.

The White House has once again launched “We the People,” an online platform designed to hear from the American public about their key issues. In the midst of a highly competitive election season, President Obama is once more reaching out to the public to show he cares about their issues. The White House website declares: “We the People provides a new way to petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country. We created We the People because we want to hear from you. If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.”  Among the many petitions being launched, and hoping to pass the lofty 25,000 threshold, is one dealing with the famous Roswell UFO incident and the possibility that it was extraterrestrial in origin.

Steve Bassett from the Paradigm Research Group (PRG) has formally petitioned the Obama Administration to: “reinvestigate an alleged extraterrestrial vehicle crash near Roswell, NM in 1947 and an Air Force cover-up of the facts.” In support of his petition, which he titled, “Disclosure Petition V – Roswell,” Bassett cites a former astronaut, military officers and a retired CIA officer who all believe that something out of this world really did happen at Roswell:

Lt Col. Philip Corso (USA) "I came into possession of the Roswell File. This file contained field reports, medical autopsy reports and technological debris from the crash of an extraterrestrial vehicle."

Capt. Edgar Mitchell (USAF/NASA) "Roswell was a real incident, and that indeed an alien craft did crash, and that material was recovered from that crash site."

Chase Brandon (CIA) "It was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet."

Lt. Col. Richard French (USAF) "There were actually two crashes at Roswell."

Bassett even cites Gov. Bill Richardson to support his petition for a new investigation: "The mystery surrounding this crash has never been adequately explained – not by independent investigators, and not by the U.S. government."

I contacted Steve Bassett and asked him a few questions about his current petition which is the fifth in a series of White House petitions launched by him

Q1. Why is this petition important?

Disclosure Petition V focuses on Roswell and is aimed to point back to the White House response to Disclosure Petition – I claiming there was no evidence for extraterrestrial engagement of the human race or for government suppression of any evidence for such.

The immediate effect of the White House "We the People" project was to permit the ET issue to be posted to the White House website for the first time.  This was a milestone.   As it happened the first Disclosure petition received the necessary 5,000 signatures triggering a formal written response from the Obama administration – also a first.   It remained up on the White House website for two months.   The subsequent Disclosure petitions were posted for 30 days each.   This is not just any website, it is the Internet presence for the President of the United States, and since September 22, 2011 the ET issue has been addressed on that website with regularity. 

I expect the "We the People" section to be closed after the election, regardless of the outcome.  Until then, PRG will continue to post Disclosure petitions to the site.

Q2. What was the White House response to your earlier petitions on UFO disclosure? Do you expect a different response this time? Why?

There will be no White House response to Disclosure Petition V – Roswell as there is little chance it will acquire the necessary 25,000 signatures.  The "We the People" project is fading out, largely due to actions by the White House.  There is an upside as the number of posted petitions has shrunk to about 30 providing the Disclosure petitions more visibility. 

Q3. What do you think will happen if you achieve the 25,000 threshold?

Under their own rules 25,000 signatures would generate a White House response.  It would be quite interesting to see how the White House would maneuver around the statements of Col. Corso, Capt. Mitchell, Gov. Richardson, Agent Brandon and Col. French.  Essentially, these men have called the U. S. Air Force a liar.  Awkward.  Such contradictions are rife throughout the truth embargo.  However, as long as the public and the media are willing to live with these contradictions, the truth embargo will continue.

After the first successful petition, Phil Larson from the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy, officially responded:

The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye. However, that doesn't mean the subject of life outside our planet isn't being discussed or explored. In fact, there are a number of projects working toward the goal of understanding if life can or does exist off Earth.

Larson went on to discuss the Search for Extraterrestrial Life Initiative (SETI); the Kepler Space Telescope seeking Earth-like exoplanets; and the Mars Science Laboratory, as examples of government projects focused on possible extraterrestrial life.

If “Disclosure Petition V – Roswell” does reach the 25,000 threshold it would be helpful to know if Mr Larson or the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy could give a different response this time. The official Obama Presidential Campaign slogan is Forward – it would be good if we could move forward on a genuine investigation of the Roswell UFO Crash and possible cover up of extraterrestrial life.

The world mourned the recent passing of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. According to various sources, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin saw large UFOs observing the moon landing from a nearby crater. Apparently, Armstrong took his moon secrets to the grave. Not so according to Dr Steven Greer, Director of the Disclosure Project – a non-profit organization dedicated to releasing whistleblower testimony of classified UFO projects. Greer spoke to close family members of both Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin who privately confirmed that the latter had seen large UFOs observing the Apollo 11 moon landing from a nearby crater. More significantly, a personal friend of Armstrong told Greer that Armstrong received death threats to keep his moon secrets. If true, both Apollo 11 astronauts and other surviving moon walkers have received death threats to keep their moon secrets.

During his life, Neil Armstrong publicly revealed nothing contrary to the official version of events that took place surrounding the Apollo 11 mission. As far as his public comments were concerned Armstrong didn’t appear to be keeping any moon secrets. There was however a cryptic comment he made during a White House speech celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing that he made on July 20th 1994 that suggested he was keeping moon secrets. While Armstrong struggled to hold back tears with other Apollo 11 astronauts and President Clinton watching, he said:

Today we have with us a group of students, among America’s best. To you we say, we have only completed a beginning. We leave you much that is undone. There are great ideas undiscovered, breakthroughs available to those who can remove one of truth's protective layers. There are places to go beyond belief.

What was Armstrong hiding? What did he mean by "truth's protective layers?"In an August 27 blog post, Dr Stephen Greer reveals that he spoke with close relatives of both Armstrong and Aldrin who had been told the truth about what the latter had seen on the moon:

Close friends and very close family members of both Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin have separately told me that indeed there were numerous, large UFOs around the crater where the Lunar Module landed and that these were seen by both Armstrong and Aldrin. I have also spoken to military officers that have seen the footage of this event- but it has never been made public. One close family member of Buzz Aldrin told me “It is not my place to out Buzz on this- someday if he can speak about it, he will…

Greer next revealed that according to a close friend of Armstrong, the latter had received death threats to keep his moon secrets:

When we were organizing The Disclosure Project a few years ago, I asked one of Neil Armstrong’s friends if Armstrong would come to Washington to brief members of Congress at the 1997 Congressional briefing we organized in April of that year. I was told that Armstrong wished he could –but that if he spoke about what really happened during the moon landing, that Neil Armstrong, his wife, and children would all be killed. It was put to me this bluntly.

If what Greer was told by relatives and friends of Armstrong and Aldrin is accurate, then Aldrin and other surviving moon walkers have received death threats to maintain silence about what they saw on the moon. Armstrong’s cryptic comment at the White House, and struggle to hold back tears revealed his deep anguish over the momentous truths he was forced to hide. If America’s most celebrated astronaut could be so crudely threatened into silence, then ways need to be found to protect America’s remaining astronauts so they can come forward to reveal any moon secrets they are hiding.

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon died today from heart failure. For many, Armstrong is the all-American hero who performed the seemingly impossible. He fulfilled President Kennedy’s vision of putting a man on the moon before the end of the decade. Armstrong’s walk on the moon was televised and witnessed by hundreds of millions around the planet. For many it was an unforgettable experience and sparked hopes of a bright future for human space travel. What Armstrong experienced that day on the moon has been marked by controversy over a two minute period of radio silence that surprised viewers and fueled many theories over what really happened. According to alleged leaked government documents and photographs, Armstrong did not just see the barren landscape televised to millions, but something much more significant. According to NASA insiders and an alleged ham radio transmission intercept, what Armstrong witnessed that day changed his life, and led to the eventual abandonment of the manned lunar missions. According to alleged leaked documents, two huge extraterrestrial spacecraft watched the Apollo 11 landing, and observed the Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin moon walks.

During the Apollo 11 moon landing, there was a two minute period of radio silence. According to NASA, the problem arose from one of two television cameras overheating, thus disrupting the reception. What really happened, according to various sources, was that Armstrong and Aldrin saw something else watching them! According to Timothy Good, author of Above Top Secret (1988) HAM radio operators receiving the VHF signals transmitted from Apollo 11 to NASA’s Houston headquarters, intercepted the following message which NASA screened from the public in the missing two minutes:

Mission Control:

What's there ? Mission Control calling Apollo 11.

Apollo 11:

These babies are huge, sir … enormous….Oh, God, you wouldn't believe it! I'm telling you there are other space craft out there… lined up on the far side of the crater edge… they're on the moon watching us. (Above Top Secret, p. 384.)

The HAM operator’s radio intercept was widely dismissed by the media, but in 1975 it received unexpected support. Maurice Chatelain, is a retired NASA communications engineer who helped develop the communications system used in the Apollo moon missions. In his 1975 book, Our Cosmic Ancestors, he wrote:

[O]nly moments before Armstrong stepped down the ladder to set foot on the Moon, two UFOs hovered overhead. Edwin Aldrin took several pictures of them. Some of these photographs have been published in the June 1975 issue of Modern People magazine.” (p. 25)

Later, in 1979, Chatelain said that Armstrong’s sighting of two UFOs over a lunar crater was being deliberately kept from the media and public by NASA:  “The encounter was common knowledge in NASA, but nobody has talked about it until now.” l Even more remarkably, Chatelain claimed that:

…all Apollo and Gemini flights were followed, both at a distance and sometimes also quite closely, by space vehicles of extraterrestrial origin – flying saucers, or UFOs, if you want to call them by that name. Every time it occurred, the astronauts informed Mission Control, who then ordered absolute silence.

Was the missing two minutes of radio silence during the Apollo 11 moon landing an attempt by NASA to cover up what Armstrong really saw on the moon? Were UFO sightings a common occurrence during Apollo missions?

According to Buzz Aldrin in a number of press interviews, Apollo 11 was indeed watched by a UFO during its journey to the moon. Aldrin describes how the Apollo 11 astronauts avoiding mentioning the word UFO in reporting what they were witnessing, and instead asked Houston about the location of the Saturn V launch rocket. Aldrin’s admission that Apollo 11 was being shadowed by a UFO does give credence to belief that UFOs did witness the moon landing, and Armstrong had reported this to NASA in a radio communication that resulted in the missing two minutes of radio silence. Aldrin’s admission also supports Chatelain’s claim that one or more extraterrestrial vehicles watched the Apollo 11 moon landing as Chatelain claimed in his book.

Is there any other source supporting the controversial claims that Neil Armstrong had witnessed two huge extraterrestrial vehicles over a lunar crater watching the Apollo 11 moon landing. According to Timothy Good, Dr Vladimir Azhazha, a physicist and Professor of Mathemeatics at Moscow University at the time:

“Neil Armstrong relayed the message to Mission Control that two large, mysterious objects were watching them afte3r having landed near the moon module. But his message was never head by the public – because NASA censored it. (Above Top Secret, p. 384)

So why did NASA eventually terminate the Apollo missions if extraterrestrial visitors were there and watching the Earth? The answer according to Armstrong, as relayed by an unnamed Professor at a NASA symposium is as follows:

Professor: What really happened out there with Apollo 11?

Armstrong: It was incredible … of course, we had always known there was a possibility … the fact is, we were warned off. There was never any questions then of a space station or a moon city.

Professor: How do you mean “warned off”?

Armstrong: I can’t go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology – Boy, where they big! … and menacing …. No, there is no question of a space station.

Professor: But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11?

Armstrong: Naturally – NASA was committed at that time, and couldn’t risk a panic on earth…. But it really was a quick scoop and back again. (Above Top Secret, p. 186)

So what’s the truth? Did Neil Armstrong really see extraterrestrial vehicles on the moon, who eventually warned NASA not to return? With Armstrong’s death we will perhaps never have his personal version of what really happened on that July day in 1969. Perhaps NASA will one day release an official version of what really happened, or have they already done so through a fictional movie admission by Buzz Aldrin? In the movie Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Buzz Aldrin comes forward to reveal a version of the truth about what he and Armstrong saw on the moon. In the movie he says on a secret black operations radio line to NASA, during public radio silence, while on the moon:

Buzz Aldrin: You cannot believe what we're seeing…

Black Ops NASA Technician: We are not alone after all, are we?

Buzz Aldrin: No, sir. We're not alone.

 

If the above events are true, it must have been very difficult for Armstrong to keep official silence about what he really saw on the moon for over four decades. Perhaps that explains his reclusive nature after the lunar missions, and public reticence in describing his personal experiences on the moon. If so, he remained true to his word and kept silence despite any personal reservations to the contrary. Neil Armstrong was an American Patriot to the end.

Early this morning US Eastern Time, the Mars Science Laboratory (aka Curiosity rover) successfully landed on Mars. “Curiosity's main assignment,” according to NASA, “is to investigate whether its study area ever has offered environmental conditions favorable for microbial life.” To achieve its two year exploratory mission, the nuclear powered Curiosity carries 15 times as much scientific equipment as on previous Mars rovers.  Curiosity will analyze samples of soil, rocks and atmosphere on the spot and transmit results back to NASA scientists. NASA claims that “Curiosity is a bold step forward in learning about our neighboring planet.” Importantly, according to Doug McCuistion, director of the Mars Exploration Program at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., "This mission transitions the program's science emphasis from the planet's water history to its potential for past or present life."

If you are interested in learning about the possibility of current life on Mars, Curiosity is not designed to answer that question. Why not you may ask? According to NASA, the inconclusive results of past NASA experiments of current microbial life on Mars meant that there was no point repeating such experiments and risk new scientific controversy. NASA has a right to be concerned since controversy over the Viking Lander experiments in 1976 has not gone away. According to a scientific study published in April 2012, the Viking experiments successfully detected life after all. All this makes NASA’s current emphasis on seeking whether conditions ever existed on Mars for life look rather trivial, and a step in the wrong direction.

Here is what self-congratulatory Press releases from NASA over Curiosity’s successful landing won’t tell you. In April 2012, a team of scientists and mathematicians analyzing data from the 1976 Viking Mission concluded that life on Mars was detected in one of the four experiments conducted by the two robotic landers. Their report, “Complexity Analysis of the Viking Labeled Release Experiments,” released in the International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Sciences resurrected the controversy over results of the Viking Mission’s “Labeled Released experiment” designed by Dr Gilbert Levin. The Viking mission was the only Mars mission so far that was designed by NASA to detect life. Dr Levin was confident that the experiment had detected microbial life on Mars, but his NASA colleagues disagreed and his startling finding was forgotten in the Martian sands of time. This new scientific investigation has concluded that Levin was right all along.  Here is what the team of scientists concluded in their 2012 report:

The only extraterrestrial life detection experiments ever conducted were the three which were components of the 1976 Viking Mission to Mars. Of these, only the Labeled Release experiment obtained a clearly positive response…. We have applied complexity analysis to the Viking LR data….We conclude that the complexity pattern seen in active experiments strongly suggests biology while the different pattern in the control responses is more likely to be non-biological….These analyses support the interpretation that the Viking LR experiment did detect extant microbial life on Mars.

So why has NASA not designed any new experiments for detecting current life on Mars? That’s the 2.5 billion dollar question that should be asked with the Curiosity mission and budget. Are we really expected to believe that after more than three decades since Viking, NASA still can’t design an experiment to conclusively answer whether or not life currently exists on Mars? Rather than Curiosity being a “bold step forward in learning about our neighboring planet,” it looks like an expensive step backwards to avoid renewed scientific controversy over whether or not life exists on Mars.

Edinburgh University is set to launch a series of six free online courses in Autumn 2012, one of which is titled: “Introduction to Astrobiology and the Search for Extraterrestrial Life”. The course involves five lectures to be presented online and will result in a certificate to all that complete it. Edinburgh is teaming up with Princeton and Stanford universities in an effort to make available undergraduate courses to a global audience for free as part of the Coursera consortium.  According to Edinburgh University spokesperson, Ranald Leask: “Something like extraterrestrial life comes out of a wide and deep base of knowledge and academic endeavour.” Leask is referring to the progress made by the scientific community in confirming the existence of distant exoplanets and that some of these have the right conditions for hosting life as we know it. Princeton was the first U.S. university to offer a degree in astrobiology. Now thanks to Edinburgh University, astrobiology courses that focus on questions concerning the existence of extraterrestrial life are going global.

Edinburgh’s “Search for Extraterrestrial Life” course will be taught by Professor Charles Cockell who has authored two books on Mars, worked for NASA, and is the current Director for the UK Center for Astrobiology. Cockell’s course will examine questions such as “Is there life on other planetary bodies?” and “How is it distributed throughout the Universe?”

According to Rory Reynolds from the Scotsman:

The first two weeks of the course explore the origins of life and how beings survive in extreme environments, with the focus in the third week moving to the possibility of life being discovered on other planets. The final week includes asking how contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence would be dealt with and what would be the impact on society. It concludes with the question “who would represent Earth?” in the event of first contact.

The course is a direct result in the ongoing discovery of exoplanets, some of which have been confirmed to exist in the habitable region of their suns. This has sparked a number of academic conferences focusing on the social and political impact of the discovery of extraterrestrial life. Two were hosted by the Royal Society of London in 2010, and led to much media interest over scientific speculations over the likely motivations of extraterrestrial life. The most notable has been Prof Stephen Hawkings’ view about space faring extraterrestrials being more likely predatory in nature than friendly.

Recent advances in space telescopes have now made it possible to detect alien metropolises on distant worlds. On May 8, 2012, NASA announced: “NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope has detected light emanating from a “super-Earth” beyond our solar system for the first time. While the planet is not habitable, the detection is a historic step toward the eventual search for signs of life on other planets.”  According to Dario Borghino from  Gizmag: “This marks the first time that light has been detected from a planet of such a small size, and the find is telling astrophysicists where to look in their search for signs of life on planets beyond our own.”

The question to be examined in the final week of the Edinburgh Unniversity course, “who would represent Earth” in the case of contact is very significant. It first came to public prominence in 2010 in relation to Dr Mazlan Othman from the United Nations Office of Outer Space Affairs who was a presenter at the Royal Society astrobiology conference in October 2010. There was much media speculation over a story in the Sunday Times mistakenly claiming that Dr Othman would represent Earth on behalf of all humanity. In an earlier talk, Othman did say however:

The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that some day human kind will receive signals from extraterrestrials. When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject. The UN is a ready-made mechanism for such coordination.

Edinburgh University’s upcoming “Introduction to Astrobiology and the Search for Extraterrestrial Life” course will open up an exciting new era in the study of extraterrestrial life. Core questions regarding the existence and societal implications of extraterrestrial life are being raised by respected scientists, and will now be discussed by students around the world. According to Jeff Haywood, vice principal of the University of Edinburgh, the number of students for the online course is potentially 100,000 students or more. That projected enrollment figure is in itself a remarkable possibility. Whether 100,000 students enroll or not, it is clear that the scholarly study of extraterrestrial life and its societal implications has entered mainstream scientific discourse and is now going global.
