Citizen Hearing on 'UFO & Alien' Disclosure 2013

Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, April 29 – May 3, 2013

It has just been confirmed that five former members of the US Congress will hear evidence of a sixty year cover-up of evidence of UFOs and extraterrestrial life. In an April 8 Press Release, it was announced that from April 29 to May 3, 2013, former Senator Mike Gravel (1961-1981); former Congressman Merrill Cook (Rep, 1997-2001); former Congresswoman Darlene Hooley (1997-2009); former Congresswoman Carolyn Kilpatrick (1997-2011); and former Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey (1993-2013) will sit and hear evidence from forty witnesses. Modeled on a U.S. Senate hearing room formula, the five members will hear the evidence presented by “researchers, activists and military/agency/political witnesses” in what will be called a “Citizen Hearing on Disclosure.” The former Congressional members will hear evidence that the Roswell Crash did happen, that the US military issued shoot-to-kill orders against UFOs, that the FAA was ordered to cover up UFO sightings, that the reality of extraterrestrial life has officially been covered up since at least 1947, and that nuclear weapons facilities have been deactivated by UFOs.

The “Citizen Hearing on Disclosure” is the brainchild of Stephen Bassett from the Paradigm Research Group who succeeded in raising over a million dollars in funding for the event which will be streamed live to world and held in the National Press Club. Bassett says that:

The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure will attempt to accomplish what the U. S. Congress has failed to do for forty-five years – reveal the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time.

The last time the US Congress heard evidence about UFOs was in 1968 at a symposium held before the Committee On Science And Astronautics, which comprised 30 members of the U.S. House Of Representatives. The Congressional Committee heard evidence from six scientists, and accepted written statements from a further six scientists including Stanton Friedman, M.Sc. who will be a presenter at the 2013 Citizen Hearing on Disclosure.

On the Citizen Hearing website, the format is explained:

All will conduct themselves in the same manner appropriate to a Congressional hearing. To the extent possible the protocols for congressional hearings will be followed. Committee members will receive written statements from witnesses, hear oral statements and ask whatever questions they wish about the subject matter at hand.

Witnesses include former astronaut Edgar Mitchell, former Canadian Minister for Defense, Paul Hellyer, and witnesses/researchers from Brazil, Uruguay, Peru and China.

I spoke today to Stephen Bassett, Executive Director of the Citizen Hearing, about what he expects to emerge from the Citizen Hearing. He said that no report is expected from the former members of Congress who will simply hear witness testimony, receive reports, ask questions and maintain a suitable congressional model for the Citizen Hearing. The main intention is to have the evidence presented for follow up. In this regard, he explained five main goals:

  1. Send a message to the U.S. Congress that it is not doing its job, by having the Citizen Hearing gather evidence about UFOs and extraterrestrial life that deserves further investigation by the Congress.
  2. Reply to a White House claim in an official response to an earlier petition that there is no evidence supporting the extraterrestrial hypothesis.
  3. Stimulate Citizen Hearings in other countries by having the Citizen Hearing translated into the five most important world languages.
  4. Draw attention to the tremendous number of witnesses, researchers and activists working on disclosing the evidence of an extraterrestrial presence.
  5. Create a 501(c)3 organization that can gain funding for future Citizen Hearings.

A documentary will be produced from the Citizen Hearing which will be titled Truth Embargo. The April 28-May 3 Citizen Hearing is free and open to the public. More details are available at its main website.

The search for an explanation of what caused the Super Bowl power blackout just got deeper with live camera video feed of a UFO filmed over the Louisiana Super Dome minutes before the blackout. Yesterday, the International Business Tribune, published a story featuring the video titled: “Did Red UFO in New Orleans Sky Trigger Super Bowl Power Cut.” The video shows two mysterious red lights floating above the Superbowl stadium minutes before the blackout. The video is a record of the live camera feed from the Online Weather Center for New Orleans on the day and evening of the Super Bowl. The power outage lasted 34 minutes, only slightly longer than the global power outage caused by extraterrestrials in the Sci Fi classic, The Day the Earth Stood Still, aimed at sending a message to world governments. Was it all just coincidental, or was the UFO an extraterrestrial vehicle sending a message to humanity?

The video became available on Youtube soon after the Super Bowl ended on February 3 and uploaded with the title. “Blimp or Ufo ? Lights Above Super Bowl 47 Before Blackout New Orleans Superdome Blackout ! UFO ?” The video was spotted by Dominic Gover from the International Business Tribune who ran his story in the highly regarded International Business Tribune on February 6. According to Gover,

Officials in New Orleans are still baffled by what happened to disrupt the American football game between Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. Confusiondeepened when energy supplier Entergy New Orleans admitted its investigation had drawn a blank.A full-scale inquiry has been mounted by the owners of the Superdome. Consultants were being drafted in to analyse data. More than $1m of improvements to the stadium were commissioned in the aftermath of the blackout. But could footage of the sky over the southern state city at the time of the power cut hold clues?

The video shows the Louisiana Superdome on the day of the Super Bowl taken by the Live Camera feed from the Online Weather Center. According to the video narrator:

There was something that appeared right above the Superdome right before the lights went out… Maybe nothing, maybe something. But there was something above the Superdome in the sky right before the lights went out.

In my previous Super Bowl article, I speculated about the similarities between the Super Bowl power outage and the power blackout in the Day the Earth Stood Still Sci Fi classic:

In the Day the Earth Stood Still, an alien called Klaatu comes up with the idea of a 30 minute power outage to get the attention of Earth governments so that they allow scientists to meet to discuss the alien’s proposals for nuclear disarmament and world peace. With more than seventy years elapsing since the first UFO sightings and alleged communications with extraterrestrials, could aliens have lost patience with the US government? Could aliens have chosen to demonstrate their power by orchestrating a power outage at the New Orleans Superdome during the biggest moment in the US sporting calendar?

The video of the live camera feed of a UFO over the Superdome minutes before the blackout does make it more plausible that over 111 million viewers witnessed a message from extraterrestrials. On the other hand, the UFO may have been a blimp or other mundane terrestrial source that coincided with a chance electrical breakdown at the Superdome during a remarkable Super Bowl game. You decide.

exopolitics 10 YearsToday marks the 10th anniversary of exopolitics.org which was created on January 20, 2003 on Martin Luther King Day. The date was chosen to celebrate the life and mission of Martin Luther King who was a personal inspiration to me, and whose work had similarities with the new research and life venture that I was embarking on with the creation of Exopolitics.org. Dr King strived for the removal of racial inequality and a restoration of the Constitutional values upon which the United States was created: Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The main challenge he confronted was the inbred biases of many in the public who were brought up to believe that racial inequalities were a natural part of life. Dr King’s immediate struggle was against institutional policies that upheld racial segregation in the American South. The harder and long term struggle was against the inbred biases that made American citizens resistant to accepting any changes to the racial inequalities that were believed to be an inevitable part of life.

In first being exposed to the reality of extraterrestrial life, and a massive cover up of supporting evidence I saw a similar struggle ahead to what had confronted Dr King in the civil rights arena. After a 20 month period of researching the issues raised from my watching of Dr Stephen Greer’s Disclosure Project Press Conference in May 2001, I decided to change my conventional research interests at American University where I had worked since 1996. In writing my first exopolitics paper, "The Need for Exopolitics: Implications of the Extraterrestrial Conspiracy Theories for Policy Makers and Global Peace", I naively thought it would be welcomed by my superiors at American University. How wrong I was. I was told not to associate the University with exopolitics in any way, and so could not publish my article on my Amerian University webpage. This directly led to the creation of Exopolitics.org . Continued opposition led to my eventual dismissal from American University in 2004 which created significant personal and professional problems in my life.

Ten years after the creation of the Exopolics.org website, I am greatly encouraged by the number of individuals that have become interested in exopolitics, and created exopolitical websites and organizations around the world. Nevertheless, the struggle is still massive and much work needs to be done to expose the extent of the cover-up of evidence of extraterrestrial life. The institutional policies that hide this truth from the American and world publics need to be exposed. More importantly, and more challenging, is the quest to address to inbred public biases that individuals discussing UFOs and extraterrestrial life are somehow on the fringe of society and need to be shunned.

In reality, all studying UFOs and extraterrestrial life are courageous individuals who have dedicated much of their time, and lives in many cases, to finding out the truth despite public dismissal and ridicule. While there will always be differences of opinion and methods among researchers, I admire all who have dedicated their time to UFO and exopolitical issues given the public biases against such interests. I especially appreciate those individuals that have supported my work in many ways, and given me the courage to continue on despite the determined opposition of public institutions and the mass media.

Exopolitics continues to personally inspire me and my research interests. Those visiting exopolitics.org can view online for free the full scope of my 10 years of research – approximately five books worth of material or half a million words. I look forward to what the next 10 years will bring to the field of exopolitics and to my own life. I sincerly thank all that have had the courage to write, speak or commit themselves to investigating and informing others about evidence of visitors from other worlds coming to our small planet. You continue to inspire me and give me cause for optimism over  the tremendous opportunities that lie ahead for us individually and as a species as we boldly step forward to embrace the truth about our cosmic visitors.

UFO captured by NASA and deleted from Johnson Space Center websiteIn a news alert issued today, NASA has been caught deleting photos from its website of what is unmistakable evidence of a UFO. The UFO photos first appeared on the NASA Johnson Space Center website in May 2011 and clearly showed a spacecraft of some advanced design. Without any fanfare, the photos were uploaded and stayed on the NASA website for over a year and half until being recently removed. According to Scott Waring from UFO Sightings Daily, the photos were initially leaked by someone in NASA wanting to get the word out about UFOs. The removed photos with original links to the NASA/Johnson Space Center website can now be found on UFO Sightings Daily. The removal of the digital photos supports claims by whistleblowers that NASA regularly removes evidence of UFOs from its website that are extraterrestrial in origin.

Here is what Waring had to say about the photos when they were first discovered on NASA Johnson Space Center website:

Take a look at these amazing photos that were leaked out of NASA Johnson Space Center. The quality of the photos is almost HD and the detail we see of the UFO recorded by a NASA satellite orbiting are incredible. The most important question here is not what they are…space stations or ships, but is the species that built them still on board those ships?

After the photos were removed, Waring issued a news alert claiming:

I have just been made aware by one of our readers that the UFO Photo that were almost in HD in quality have been deleted. I have tried the links in 4 different web browser but to no luck. The links are gone which means only the photos and videos we posted are the only evidence they ever existed. Please download and copy the video and photos you a personal file of yours and share with others.

As the photos and video make clear, there is unmistakable evidence of UFOs of an artificial design that have been photographed by NASA’s earth orbiting spacecraft. The UFO does not correspond to any known terrestrial spacecraft and appears to be alien in design. Nothing is known of the occupants, but Clark McClelland a former NASA employee who completed training as a Spacecraft Operator may have the answer.

During a 34 year career working as a NASA contractor/employee, McClelland was responsible for ensuring the safety of numerous NASA missions including Mercury spaceflights, Apollo missions, the International Space Station and the Space Shuttle. In a statement released on his website on July 29, 2008, McClelland revealed that he witnessed an eight to nine foot tall extraterrestrial in association with a Space Shuttle mission he was monitoring from the Kennedy Space Center. He wrote:

I, Clark C. McClelland, former ScO [Spacecraft Operator], Space Shuttle Fleet, personally observed an 8 to 9 foot tall ET on his 27 inch video monitors while on duty in the Kennedy Space Center, Launch Control Center (LCC). The ET was standing upright in the Space Shuttle Payload Bay having a discussion with TWO tethered US NASA Astronauts! I also observed on my monitors, the spacecraft of the ET as it was in a stabilized, safe orbit to the rear of the Space Shuttle main engine pods. I observed this incident for about one minute and seven seconds. Plenty of time to memorize all that I was observing. IT WAS AN ET and Alien Star Ship!

Furthermore, McClelland wrote that he was not the only NASA official who witnessed the incident: "A friend of mine later contacted me and said that this person had also observed an 8 to 9 foot tall ET INSIDE the SPACE SHUTTLE CREW COMPARTMENT! Yes, inside OUR Shuttle! BOTH missions were DoD (Pentagon) TOP SECRET (TS) encounters!'

Could the UFO photos that were deleted from the NASA Johnson Center website been the same extraterrestrial vehicle seen by McClelland? If so, then we may have our answer as to who are its occupants, and why someone at NASA decided to finally pull the photos from their website. The fact that the photos were left on NASA`s website for over a year and a half does suggest that there are those working within NASA that want the public to learn the truth about what NASA is seeing and doing in outer space. On the other hand, the fact that the photos were pulled does confirm that NASA is actively suppressing information about UFOs caught on film from many of its space missions.

UPDATE: Thanks to alert readers, both the high and low resolution photos of the UFOs depicted in the original series that were posted in the Scott Waring May 2011 article are still available online. It now becomes clear that NASA JSC moved their digital images to different locations. Here are the links to the high res versions (simply replace "highres" with "lowres" in the URL to get the low resol versons):

Britain's Director of Public Prosecutation (DPP) announced today that Gary McKinnon will not face prosecution in the United Kingdom for hacking into the computer systems of NASA, the Pentagon and other government agencies in search of information on UFOs. Keir Starmer QC (DPP) decided that the chances of a succesful prosecution "are not high." McKinnon claimed to have found photographs, film, and other evidence of alien spacecraft secretly held by various U.S. government agencies. Starmer's decision follows an earlier decision by British Home Secretary Theresa May in October 2012 to block the US extradition efforts. While the US extradition order is still valid and could be activated in other countries if McKinnnon travelled abroad, Starmer's decision ends McKinnon's decade long legal nightmare in Britain. McKinnon can now safely reveal anything further that he learned of secret US government knowledge of UFOs and extraterrestrial life.

In his statement Starmer said:

The potential difficulties in bringing a case in England and Wales now should not be underestimated, not least the passage of time, the logistics of transferring sensitive evidence prepared for a court in the US to London for trial, the participation of US government witnesses in the trial and the need fully to comply with the duties of disclosure imposed on the CPS. The prospects of a conviction against Mr McKinnon which reflects the full extent of his alleged criminality are not high.

McKinnon first hacked into NASA's Johnson Space Center and said:

… he found a high definition picture of a large cigar shaped object over the northern hemisphere. He said that he was so shocked by the picture that he didn’t think to immediately save it. He also said that the file size was so large that is was difficult to view it on his computer. Eventually his connection was lost, and so was the picture.

When McKinnon later hacked into classified files of U.S. Space Command (incorporated into Strategic Command on October 1, 2002 soon after McKinnon was caught), he discovered a number of naval terms such as "fleet-to-fleet transfers" concerning non-terrestrial officers. He said:

I found a list of officers' names … under the heading 'Non-Terrestrial Officers’. It doesn't mean little green men. What I think it means is not Earth-based. I found a list of 'fleet-to-fleet transfers', and a list of ship names. I looked them up. They weren't US Navy ships. What I saw made me believe they have some kind of spaceship, off-planet.

McKinnon’s startling discovery cast light on what had been earlier revealed by no less than a former President of the United States: Ronald Reagan. In President Reagan's Diary, the entry for Tuesday, June 11, 1985 (page 334) reads:

Lunch with 5 top space scientist. It was fascinating. Space truly is the last frontier and some of the developments there in astronomy etc. are like science fiction, except they are real. I learned that our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people.

Reagan’s comment was revealing since the recently retired Space Shuttle held a maximum of eight people and only five were built for space flight. Even if all five took off fully loaded it would be impossible to place and maintain 300 astronauts in orbit. Was Reagan revealing the existence of a highly classified space program that could accommodate hundreds of astronauts in orbit? Apparently so, according to dozens of military and corporate whistleblowers. Hidden within one of the nine unified combatant commands of the U.S. military, as McKinnon later discovered, appeared to be a highly classified fleet of aircraft carrier sized ships that operate in outer space.

Now that McKinnon no longer faces the threat of extradition and will not be prosecuted by British authorities, he may be able to reveal more about what he learned from sensitive U.S. military and government computer files about UFOs and extraterrestrial life.

In Tuesday's U.S. Presidential election, Barack Obama won a narrow but clear victory over his Republican opponent. Democrats held on to their Senate majority, and Republicans maintained control over the House of Representatives. The next twelve months or so will be when Obama moves forward with his most ambitious re-election policies before the 2014 mid-term elections return the United States again to the hyper-partisan politics that produced gridlock for the last two years. Republican control over the House will ensure that there is plenty of opposition to much of Obama’s legislative agenda. This will not be the case though with immigration reform to finally deal with the question of illegal aliens. Severely punished by the Latino vote, Republicans are sure to give bipartisan support to Obama in passing a new DREAM Act to legalize the status of young illegal aliens raised in the USA. What however of another type of illegal alien claimed to be visiting the USA? Does UFO extraterrestrial disclosure figure at all in Obama’s political agenda?

When Obama first became President there were many hopeful signs that his push for more transparent and accountable government would translate into greater openness where the truth would finally come out about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. His appointment of Hillary Clinton to Secretary of State fueled rumors that her documented interest in UFOs in the Clinton administration would lead to some startling disclosures. Whistleblowers were ready to come forward to testify about a host of illegal government activities if they were given protection to reveal their secrets. This culminated in the belief that disclosure of extraterrestrial life was imminent early in the Obama administration. Four years later, those early hopes look positively naïve. Government transparency did not open up national security archives to researchers, and whistleblower protection did not happen after all. The Obama administration went on the record to disavow any interest in investigating claims that the Roswell crash really involved otherworldly UFOs. There was no disclosure of extraterrestrial life visiting our world.

What has changed, four years after Obama’s first Presidential election, is that the world is better prepared for accepting that extraterrestrial life exists. Here are three scenarios of how Obama might announce the existence of alien life during his second term of office.

Scenario 1 – Alien life found on exoplanets. The deployment of advanced space telescopes such as NASA's Kepler Mission, has led to the discovery of hundreds of exoplanets. This has revolutionized the scientific community. The question, “do habitable conditions for life exist elsewhere in the galaxy?” has been decisively answered in the affirmative. Statistics tell us that some, if not many, of the billions of exoplanets projected to exist in our galaxy alone, are sure to host some form of life. The world’s foremost scientists are now openly discussing the scientific and social consequences of extraterrestrial life being discovered. The question is now “when” rather than “if” extraterrestrial life will be discovered by the next generation of space telescopes used to scan the galaxy.  The new Obama administration will continue to fund NASA scientific missions, making it possible that at some point in his second term, he can announce that we are not alone in the galaxy.

Scenario 2 – Roswell Crash really did happen. This scenario concerns claims that extraterrestrials are visiting us now and select government agencies have been covering this up since at least July, 1947, when the famous Roswell crash incident occurred. As most are aware, the US Army Air Corps released a statement on July 8 that a flying saucer had crashed, but retracted it hours later. Chase Brandon, a former CIA clandestine officer and public relations representative has claimed that he saw a file in the CIA historical archive that settled any personal doubt he had that the Roswell flying saucer crash really did involve extraterrestrial life and technology. Chase’s claims echo those of Lt. Col. Philip Corso, who led the Foreign Technology Desk at the US Army Research and Development department. Corso claims the U.S. Army had a filing cabinet with material from the Roswell crash that was leaked to private industry to spark technological development. During Obama’s second term, more material/evidence from the Roswell crash may leak, and/or witnesses come forward to reveal that extraterrestrial technology was indeed recovered. Several petitions have been launched with the Obama White House to achieve this goal.

Scenario 3 – (Contrived) War of the Worlds. There have been claims by Gordon Duff, a senior editor of Veterans Today, John Kettler and others of secret battles in the Pacific Ocean and Antarctica between a coalition of US-led Naval forces and extraterrestrials based in undersea bases. So far, there has not been any hard evidence to support such claims, only anonymous sources that are not revealed by Duff, et al. A Stalin era intelligence file released in 1991 revealed that the Admiral Byrd’s Antarctic expedition, Operation Highjump, did encounter and battle with a mysterious UFO force in early 1947. A succession of Hollywood blockbusters, Battleship, Battle Los Angeles, and the Avengers all focus on an extraterrestrial invasion theme. Is the public being conditioned to accept the possibility of an extraterrestrial invasion for a contrived national security crisis? According to former chief Apollo scientist, Werner Von Braun, a contrived alien invasion has been planned for several decades. Could President Obama one day find himself publicly responding to a national security crisis where US and allied military forces are under (a contrived) attack from an alien presence?  

Any of the above or alternative scenarios might occur in the next year, or before the end of Obama’s second term of office in January 2017 – so what would happen? Obama’s award of the Nobel Peace Prize; mixed racial heritage; and an eclectic religious upbringing with a Christian mother, a Muslim father and stepfather, and six years spent in Muslim Indonesia as a youth, make him ideally suited to become a highly popular world leader.If it was decided that the existence of extraterrestrial life – due to scientific discovery and/or political necessity – was to be announced to the world, then President Obama would be the ideal candidate for the job.

Extraterrestrial disclosure would very likely overcome national differences and lead to rapid political unification at a planetary level, as President Reagan speculated in a General Assembly speech at the United Nations in 1987. We could very quickly expect world-wide planetary elections for national citizens to be represented in direct dealings with Galactic civilizations. This could be achieved either through significant reform of the United Nations (which currently represents “states” and not “people”), or through the creation of a “United Earth” sovereign body representing the people of Earth. In either case, any formal announcement by President Obama of the existence of extraterrestrial life would start a series of events where he would predictably take a more global leadership role in representing the people of Earth in negotiations with galactic visitors. So when President Obama and his bipartisan Republican allies pass a revamped DREAM act for illegal aliens, let’s dream of what would happen if the existence of off-planet aliens were also to announced by the White House sometime in the next four years.

On Tuesday November 16, British hacker Gary McKinnon finally won his decade long battle to avoid extradition to the US to face charges of hacking into the computer systems of NASA, the Pentagon and other government agencies. McKinnon claimed to have found photographs, film, and other evidence of alien spacecraft secretly held by various U.S. government agencies. In deciding to block the US extradition efforts, British Home Secretary Theresa May said she decided in favor of McKinnon “after medical experts concluded he was seriously ill and likely to attempt to take his own life." While McKinnon still risks prosecution by British authorities, it's unlikely that further legal action will be taken against him. Will McKinnon reveal more about what the US government knows about UFOs and extraterrestrial life now that he now longer faces extradition?

McKinnon first hacked into NASA's Johnson Space Center and said:

… he found a high definition picture of a large cigar shaped object over the northern hemisphere. He said that he was so shocked by the picture that he didn’t think to immediately save it. He also said that the file size was so large that is was difficult to view it on his computer. Eventually his connection was lost, and so was the picture.

Lunch with 5 top space scientist. It was fascinating. Space truly is the last frontier and some of the developments there in astronomy etc. are like science fiction, except they are real. I learned that our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people.

Reagan’s comment was revealing since the recently retired Space Shuttle held a maximum of eight people and only five were built for space flight. Even if all five took off fully loaded it would be impossible to place and maintain 300 astronauts in orbit. Was Reagan revealing the existence of a highly classified space program that could accommodate hundreds of astronauts in orbit? Apparently so, according to dozens of military and corporate whistleblowers. Hidden within one of the nine unified combatant commands of the U.S. military, as McKinnon later discovered, appeared to be a highly classified fleet of aircraft carrier sized ships that operate in outer space.

Now that McKinnon no longer faces the threat of extradition and is unlikely to be prosecuted by British authorities, he may be able to reveal more about what he learned from sensitive U.S. military and government computer files about UFOs and extraterrestrial life.

 

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.
