President Obama pledged to land humans on Mars in last night’s State of the Union speech. In a show of his commitment he arranged to have astronaut Scott Kelly in the audience.
Kelly is scheduled to spend a year in the International Space Station. Kelly’s mission is vital for a future manned mission to Mars given the three years or so for a round trip.
Last month, we launched a new spacecraft as part of a re-energized space program that will send American astronauts to Mars. In two months, to prepare us for those missions, Scott Kelly will begin a year-long stay in space.
Republicans and Democrats all stood to give Kelly a standing ovation after Obama’s introduction.
On Dec. 5, 2014, NASA successfully tested its Orion spacecraft which will be used for manned missions to Mars. The Orion will be launched on top of NASA’s new heavy lift rocket, the Space Launch System which is scheduled to be ready by 2018. The Space Launch System is planned to become NASA’s most powerful rocket launch vehicle ever, surpassing the Saturn V rockets used for the Apollo missions five decades ago.
Back in April 2010, President Obama gave a speech at the Kennedy Space Center where he revealed his plan to get humans to Mars by 2035. “I expect to be around to see it,” Obama told NASA employees.
NASA is not the only U.S. organization planning to put humans on Mars. Elon Musk’s Space-X is also planning to develop sufficiently powerful rockets and spacecraft for the long trip Mars.
“The reason SpaceX was created was to accelerate development of rocket technology, all for the goal of establishing a self-sustaining, permanent base on Mars,” Musk told an audience back in May 2014. Musk plans to develop a Falcon Heavy Lift rocket, the most powerful rocket since the Saturn V that will be used for manned missions to Mars.
If all goes well for NASA and Space X, sometime within the next decade or two, humans will be taken to Mars. The first human landing on Mars will be a historic global event, rivaling the first moon landing. Or will it? Ardent conspiracy theorists argue that humans have already landed on Mars.
Alleged whistleblowers have come forward over the last few years claiming to have traveled to a secret colony on Mars using different classified travel technologies. Among the more recent is ‘Captain Kaye’, who claims to have spent 17 years on a Mars military base after being taken there by a spacecraft belonging to a classified space fleet. Another alleged whistleblower, Andrew Basiago, an attorney based in Washington state, claims to have been teleported to a secret Mars base after being recruited into a classified program called Project Pegasus.
Without concrete evidence to support extraordinary claims of a secret human colony already on Mars, there has been heated controversy. Is there a secret space fleet already ferrying humans to Mars; or advanced teleportation technologies for instantaneous travel there?
One thing we can be sure of from the Edward Snowden NSA leaks, intelligence agencies are very skilled in hiding highly classified programs through compartmentalization. Documents confirm that the NSA and its partners train operatives to use covert forms of online deception to lead the public away from the truth.
For President Obama, his immediate challenge is to convince the Republican controlled Congress that putting humans on Mars is a policy worth funding.

2014 was a big year for the field of exopolitics – the nascent science of understanding the political implications of UFOs and extraterrestrial life. There were many exopolitics developments that figured prominently in news articles and videos from around the world. These developments point to two complementary processes that are likely to continue in 2015 and lead to very different outcomes. The first is a decades-long top secret policy of covering up evidence of extraterrestrial life that appears to be slowly unraveling due to an ongoing disclosure movement. Second, there is an official effort to prepare the general public for the impending discovery of extraterrestrial life. These processes can lead to either a “post-disclosure world” where the alien UFO cover-up has been exposed; or a “post-discovery world” where humanity learns that we are not alone. Here are my top ten exopolitics stories (listed in reverse order) based on a combination of popularity, persuasiveness and significance to either a “post-disclosure” or “post-discovery” world in the near future.
# 10. On Nov. 11, the European Space Agency (ESA) confirmed that it was receiving a mysterious signal from Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The ESA described the signal as a “mystery song” and uploaded a recording with the caption: “Hear our comet sing.” The confirmation follows months of rumors that the Rosetta mission was originally sent to explore a radio signal from the comet first detected 20 years ago.
#9. On Feb. 24, a leaked NSA document was released that explicitly reveals a clear connection between online covert operations by the “Five Eyes” intelligence community (US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand) on the UFO issue. Titled, “The Art of Deception: Training for a New Generation of Online Covert Operations,” the document is smoking gun evidence that the intelligence community is training its covert operatives to deceive the public on a range of sensitive national security issues including UFOs.
#8. Over a four day period up to Nov. 9, NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) detected a strange area near the sun where solar activity was apparently being absorbed by an invisible object. The immense spherical lens shaped field was claimed to be part of an advanced technology based on the principle of a “Dyson Sphere.” NASA’s SOHO images appear to be evidence of the sun’s energy being absorbed by a gigantic lens shaped solar collector whose approximate size was larger than the sun itself!
#7. On Aug. 14, the Mars Curiosity Rover photographed an object that appears to be a thigh bone on the Martian surface. When the photo was released by NASA’s JPL affiliate a few days later, initial observers claimed that the object was a fossilized bone fragment. The first thigh fossil claims generated much media attention and public controversy with coverage by major media outlets such as the Huffington Post and Britain’s Daily Mirror. In an unusually quick response, NASA replied to the growing controversy on August 21 by claiming that the object was a rock. Not so according to a growing number of independent researchers that have uncovered past Curiosity Rover images of what appear to be different life forms on the Mars surface.
#6. On April 8, an alleged USMC whistleblower came forward to claim that he spent 17 years on Mars serving at a secret military base whose main mission was to protect five civilian space colonies. In exclusive testimony released on ExoNews TV, Randy Cramer, who used the pseudonym, Captain Kaye, said that the Mars Defense Force recruits personnel from different military services. He claims that he was recruited from a covert branch of the U.S. Marine Corps called “Special Section,” and also served in a secret space fleet for nearly three years.
#5. On June 27, the Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary was officially launched in a dedication ceremony on the Big Island of Hawaii aimed at welcoming extraterrestrial visitors to Earth. The extraterrestrial sanctuary was first promulgated in a declaration by official representatives of the reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii. The “Declaration for Creating Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary” makes it possible for extraterrestrials to land on sovereign land claimed by the reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii.
#4. On Oct. 27, Pope Francis I endorsed the view that extraterrestrial life – which he referred to as “beings of the universe” – has evolved in ways that is consistent with the plans of “God the creator.” The Pope’s statement was a surprising endorsement of the view that the activities of intelligent extraterrestrial life in the universe can be part of a universal plan. Consequently, Pope Francis’s statement is preparing the Catholic world for the discovery of extraterrestrial life visiting our world in UFOs may be part of “the plan of the creator.”
#3. On Aug. 19, ITAR-TASS reported that Russian scientists have found microbial life on the surface of the International Space Station (ISS). The Russians first detected the microbes over a year ago and confirmed that the organisms can live in zero gravity, extremely low temperatures and with cosmic radiation. Despite the harsh conditions, the scientists reported that the bacteria were thriving on the surface of ISS and could live there for years. The Russian discovery is startling since it confirms that extraterrestrial microbes can flourish in deep space. Read more.
#2. From Sept. 18-19, 2014, NASA and the Library of Congress hosted a symposium on how society can prepare for the discovery of extraterrestrial life. Leading astrobiologists from around the world convened at the Library of Congress in Washington DC., to discuss the latest scientific theories and developments in the search for extraterrestrial life. Presenters discussed the implications from recent scientific breakthroughs in discovering the existence of exoplanets, new theories of the conditions under which extraterrestrial life can flourish, and how to communicate with them. The symposium took the position that the discovery of extraterrestrial life is imminent and the public needs to be prepared.
#1. On Jan 29 the live camera feed of the International Space Station (ISS) showed what appeared to be a strange yellow elliptical object docked with the hull of the ISS. The video shows the sleek looking yellow UFO docked at the ISS for just over two minutes with the Earth slowly rotating in the background. The video ends with ISS live feed going into blue screen mode. This suggested that NASA cut the ISS live feed once it was realized that the video of the UFO docked at the ISS was going live to the world. The docking positioning of the UFO suggests that it is not the result of a camera anomaly but a genuine spacecraft of unknown origin. This led to much speculation that the UFO was docked so that extraterrestrials could meet with NASA astronauts as has allegedly occurred in the past.

Images from the Mars Curiosity Rover have been digitally altered by NASAs JPL affiliate to cover up objects discovered on Mars. The latest digital alteration was revealed in a November 15 video released on Youtube that showed how an object caught by the Rover had been obscured by removing data to hide something from view. The alteration follows another incident revealed on November 9 of NASA JPL tampering with Rover Curiosity images where an object appears to have been digitally blurred. What is it that NASA doesnt want the public to see on Mars?
The digital alteration involved an object that has a portion of it removed and replaced by surrounding sand. Close image analysis of the altered object in the November 16 video shows how a straight line portion was changed. This created an unnatural looking effect where no shadows appear where they should for the affected object. Whoever had digitally altered the image had done a sloppy job in hiding evidence of their tampering according to the video description:
It has become more and more blatant and in your face what NASA and JPL have been doing to the “Raw Images” being beamed back from the Curiosity Rover on Mars. This is a prime example of how they have been using the blur tool and fake sand to remove artifacts and objects that someone does not want you to see. Whoever worked on this one over at JPL needs to be fired they did a horrible job with the blending of the fake sand.
The digital alteration follows an even more visually striking case of evidence tampering by NASA, this time blurring what appears to be an artificial object. In the second digital alteration (see below), it is clearly seen how an object with straight edges and smooth curves has been blurred using some kind of blurring software. The blurring is easy to see relative to the rest of the environment, and striking evidence of NASAs JPL altering raw visual data to hide what is being discovered on Mars.
NASA is no stranger to accusations that it has deliberately altered or even destroyed images to hide evidence of artificially created objects found by its spacecraft. Donna Hare worked for NASA contractor Philco Ford, had a Secret security clearance, and was shown a picture of a UFO flying over the moons surface captured during an Apollo mission by one of her colleagues. She recalled the following conversation:
I said, is this a UFO? And hes smiling at me and he says, I cant tell you that. I cant tell you that. What I knew he meant was, it was [a UFO] but he couldnt tell me. So I said, what are you going to do with this information? And he said, well, we always have to airbrush them out before we sell them to the public. And I was just amazed that they had a protocol in place for getting rid of UFO pictures on these things
Hare decided to go public in November 2000 with her whistleblower testimony released through the Disclosure Project.
Other whistleblowers have also come forward to claim that NASA and affiliated government agencies have a policy of destroying or altering photos that reveal artificial structures on the moon or in space. Karl Wolfe, for example, claims that he witnessed NASA, the NSA and the US Air Force cooperating to remove such structures from Apollo and satellite imagery when detected. At a highly classified military facility Wolf says he was shown NASA images by a colleague revealing a base on the far side of the moon:
he pulled out one of these mosaics and showed this base on the moon, which had geometric shapes there were towers, there were spherical buildings, there were very tall towers and things that looked somewhat like radar dishes but they were large structures . I was a little irritated that the government had been lying about all this for years and covering it up.
Yet another whistleblower is Dr Ken Johnston who was a manager of NASAs Data and Photo Control Department. Johnston claims that he also witnessed moon photos showing artificial structures and was asked to destroy the photos. He refused and was fired by NASA.
The two recent November 2014 cases of digital alteration of Mars Curiosity Rover images are is striking examples of a policy by NASA to hide evidence that some of the objects photographed by its spacecraft and probes are artificial in origin, and have been found on the Mars surface. Together with whistleblower claims that NASA has a decades-long policy of photo tampering with objects that appear artificial, it is not too hard to reach a firm conclusion of what NASA and its JPL affiliate is doing with Curiosity Rover images. NASA is not in the business of discovering extraterrestrial life, but is instead hiding such a discovery from the general public.

The upcoming 51st anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination and its connection to classified UFO files is discussed in a new video released by Third Phase of Phase on November 6. The video, “UFO Sightings MJ-12: The Presidents Last Stand,” proposes the general public is opening up for the first time to the possibility that Kennedy had a genuine interest in UFOs and that this played a role in his assassination. Using historic documents – both those released through the Freedom of Information Act and those leaked unofficially by whistleblowers – it is proposed that Kennedy tried a number of different initiatives to gain access to classified UFO files. With a subscriber base of almost 200,000, the Third Phase of Moon video introduces a radical new perspective on the Kennedy Assassination to the US and world public.
The Third Phase of Moon video uses a combination of new film footage taken on the Big Island of Hawaii with the writer wherein my 2013 book, Kennedy’s Last Stand is discussed, and archived footage of a 2009 lecture wherein documents concerning Kennedy’s efforts to gain access to classified UFO files are discussed. The video begins by discussing President Kennedy’s experiences in Post War Germany where he was a guest of the U.S. Secretary of Navy, James Forrestal, and toured captured Nazi UFO technologies. Kennedy’s war time knowledge of UFOs played a key role in his interest in gaining access to classified UFO files closely safeguarded by the CIA’s counter intelligence division, and a secretive organization called Majestic-12.
Kennedy’s efforts to do an end run against the CIA’s refusal to share classified UFO files is discussed, along with his efforts to gain access using his Commander in Chief powers when visiting U.S. military facilities. It is claimed that Kennedy shared some of the UFO secrets he had discovered with Marilyn Monroe. Monroe’s estrangement from Kennedy and attempt to reveal his UFO secrets through a planned Press Conference, is claimed to have played a direct role in her August 1962 death.
The Third Phase of Moon video finishes with Kennedy’s historic September 20, 1963 initiative announced at the United Nations General Assembly to collaborate with the Soviet Union in joint space and lunar missions. It is proposed that Kennedy’s space cooperation initiative was driven by a desire to have classified UFO files shared between the respective bureaucracies of the US and USSR. This would have eventually ensured direct Presidential access to classified UFO files and programs. When it became clear on 12 November 1963 – after Soviet Premier Khrushchev finally accepted Kennedy’s space cooperation initiative – that Kennedy might succeed, a secret assassination directive called “Project Environment,” was implemented by the head of the CIA’s counter intelligence division. Ten days later, President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

On Saturday morning, October 25, the Space X Dragon detached from the International Space Station (ISS) as it began its return mission to Earth carrying various cargo items. In NASA’s video footage of the Dragon departure, uploaded the same day to Youtube, a small luminous UFO is apparently monitoring the detachment and start of Dragon spacecraft’s return which conducts three burning maneuvers near the ISS. Video analysis of NASA’s coverage of the incident was conducted by Third Phase of Moon that clearly identified the UFO. Furthermore, Third Phase of Moon makes the remarkable claim that NASA deliberately tried to hide the UFO as it monitored Space X Dragon’s departure.
In the raw footage of the incident provided by NASA, it is hard to identify the UFO which is a small light just above and to the right of the Dragon spacecraft. According to Third Phase of Moon, this is because NASA zoomed out from the Dragon craft as soon as the UFO appeared nearby. After NASA’s raw footage is subjected to video analysis through zooming and light contrasts, the UFO becomes clear. Was NASA’s zooming out at the moment the UFO first appeared merely coincidental; or, as Third Phase of Moon claims, a deliberate attempt to cover up the UFO?
The Space X Dragon incident follows only three days after another small luminous UFO appeared near the ISS, this time during a spacewalk by two Russian astronauts. The UFO was very clear and appeared to maneuver near an object jettisoned by the astronauts. A day before, on October 21, two cigar shaped UFOs appeared near the ISS. In another incident on October 7, an elliptical UFO appears nearby another spacewalk by two astronauts.
The October 25 incident suggests that once again, a UFO has been filmed apparently monitoring ISS activities. If NASA was trying to cover up the latest UFO incident, this may be part of a deliberate policy of countering the frequent appearance of UFOs near the ISS that might lead the public to conclude that we are not alone.

On October 22 during a spacewalk by two Russian astronauts, the International Space Station (ISS) live feed showed a luminescent UFO briefly fly nearby. The astronauts had just jettisoned two parts of the ISS that had been removed, and the live feed showed the objects slowing falling towards the earth. As the second object is jettisoned, the UFO appears and briefly maneuvers near it. The luminescent UFO does not appear to be space debris as it clearly changes direction several times. It appears to be under intelligent control suggesting either a luminescent life form indigenous to outer space, or an extraterrestrial vehicle of some kind.
The first possibility of an extraterrestrial life form that can survive in outer space was suggested in a brief video analysis of the UFO conducted by Third Phase of Moon. It was proposed that the UFO was some kind of insect. The idea of space bugs existing in outer space received a boost on August 19, 2014 after Russians scientists announced the results of a yearlong study of a strange substance that had been obscuring the windows of the ISS that had been collected by astronauts during a prior spacewalk. Russian scientists announced that the substance was a form of sea plankton growing on the windows of the ISS. Flying at an approximate altitude of 200 miles, it is extremely unlikely that sea plankton could be carried so high by air currents. Nevertheless, the sea plankton on the ISS was growing, suggesting that it was a form of plankton indigenous to outer space rather than carried into space from the Earth’s surface.
Another possibility is that the luminescent object is an extraterrestrial spacecraft. If so, it would be yet another incident of spacewalking astronauts being monitored by extraterrestrial craft. October 7 was another incident of spacewalking astronauts being captured on the ISS live feed with a UFO nearby that appeared to be observing ISS activities. The UFO was elliptical in shape and stationary relative to the ISS.
The ISS live feed is clear evidence that something other than space debris was briefly captured on video during a spacewalking mission. The video is very suggestive of some form of indigenous space life, or an extraterrestrial vehicle, closely monitoring the ISS and the spacewalking astronauts.

Newly released video from the International Space Station’s (ISS) Live Stream shows what appears to be two cigar shaped UFOs near the ISS. The UFOs briefly appear in the video stream before there is a signal interruption. When the live stream resumes the UFOs are gone. The incident was uploaded to Youtube on October 21 and has already begun generating much discussion. It is difficult to estimate the size of the UFOs but previous sightings of similar cigar shaped objects have been estimated to be aircraft carrier sized, big enough to host smaller UFO craft. Leading astronomers and astrobiologists are now telling us that the cosmos is teeming with exoplanets capable of hosting intelligent life, and we need to prepare for its discovery. This leads to the question, are extraterrestrial ships monitoring the ISS?
The latest video incident follows a string of UFOs being captured by the ISS live stream. On October 7, a UFO appeared near two space walking astronauts. The object was also elliptical or cigar shaped, and appeared to be monitoring the ISS. On January 29, 2014 the live stream showed a yellow elliptical UFO that appeared to actually have docked with the ISS. This raised remarkable possibility that the ISS was being visited by unknown astronauts from a classified military program, or even extraterrestrials.
The main objection against past UFO sightings captured on the ISS live camera feed is that these are lensflares caused by the sun or a strong light source nearby as it hits the camera lens. In the live video feed of the two cigar shaped UFOs, there is no significant change in the ambient light as the UFOs slowly appear in the video. If the UFOs were caused by a lensflare, then their appearance would be marked by a clear change in the ambient light. Nor do the UFO appear to be natural phenomena occurring in the Earth’s atmosphere or surface.
If the two UFOs are not caused by a lensflare, camera malfunction or other natural phenomena, what are they? The UFOs may be intelligently guided cigar shaped spacecraft that have been reported by military and government whistleblowers to be very large in size.
One possible explanation is that they belong to a secret space fleet. Another explanation is that the UFOs are extraterrestrial in origin. As far back as the early 1950s, cigar shaped UFO have been regularly sighted and photographed. The most famous photographs were taken by George Adamski who filmed smaller scout ships emerging from larger cigar shaped UFOs near the moon. In a related 1952 incident, Adamski and six witnesses claimed to have sighted a large cigar shaped UFO fly overhead. It was soon followed by a smaller “scoutcraft” that landed near Adamski, who met the extraterrestrial pilot.
The International Space Station’s live camera feed continues to capture strange nearby objects through its various external camera systems. Some of these objects might be explained away as lens flares or natural phenomena. Not so however for all other incidents that likely include the two cigar shaped UFOs captured on October 21. If these two UFOs are under intelligent control, they could be spacecraft from a secret space program or from an extraterrestrial intelligence. If extraterrestrials are indeed monitoring the ISS, they may be allowing their spacecraft to be captured on video in a First Contact scenario.

A photograph taken by the Mars Curiosity Rover shows what appears to be an elongated skull on the Martian surface. According to an October 18, 2014, report by UFO Sightings Daily, the curious object is an elongated head similar to those found in ancient Egypt. In a Youtube video, the Martian skull like object is compared to elongated human skulls found in various Egyptian murals and the similarity is striking.
Around the same time the skull like object began to be discussed on the internet, NASA administrator Charles Bolden made a surprising statement about life on Mars in an October 9 interview in London:
People always ask the question ‘Why Mars?’ Several reasons: One, Mars is very Earth-like, or least used to be Earth-like. It is a planet, a sister planet to Earth. It is the most likely planet in our solar system, um, that had life at one time… may have life now, and we feel can definitely sustain life.
Was this merely a coincidence, or was Bolden preparing the world public for some surprising future announcement regarding life on Mars? Perhaps Martian life once existed, and it was connected to ancient Egypt?
The photograph was taken by Curiosity Rover on September 14, 2014 and was the focus of a video posted a month later. In the video, comparisons with various elongated human skulls depicted in Egyptian murals and statues, the suggestion is that the object is a human skull. If so, then the elongated skull may be evidence of a tangible connection between ancient Egypt and Mars. Both Earth and Mars at one time in their history possessed a human population with elongated skulls that were part of their respective planetary leaders.
Whatever the origin of the mysterious object, it is unlikely that the Curiosity Rover will investigate it more closely due to the standard response by NASA that such fossil like bone fragments are just rocks. For example, in its response to a Mars Rover image of what appeared to be a thigh bone found on Mars, NASA responded that it was nothing more than rock. Former NASA employees, such as Richard Hoover, however disagree. Hoover claims that NASA administrators go to great lengths to cover up the possibility of Martian life, and in one case directed one of the Rover missions to actually destroy evidence of a Martian fossil.
Perhaps NASA’s standard response is right, and the skull looking object captured by Curiosity Rover is just a rock. Alternatively, the object may be the elongated skull of a humanoid species that had a historical connection to ancient Egypt. Was NASA Administrator Bolden’s October 9 claim of past Martian life purely coincidental in timing, or the start of NASA releasing more of what it really knows about life on Mars?

On October 7, the live camera feed from the International Space Station (ISS) captured video of a UFO near by astronauts during a spacewalk. In a Youtube video uploaded today by NASA of the spacewalk, an unknown craft is clearly visible as one of the spacewalking astronauts performs his mission. The UFO appears for 12 seconds beginning at the 1:40 minute mark (see embedded video extract). It has an elliptical metallic shape and is of unknown size. It appears to be close by and monitoring the astronauts.
One possible explanation is that the UFO could be one of two resupply ships currently visiting the ISS. On September 23, a Space X Dragon cargo ship arrived at the ISS. It was followed two days later by the Soyuz TMA-14M carrying three additional crew members. The two craft are respectively scheduled to return to Earth on October 18 and November 10. However, both craft are docked, and not floating near the ISS as the unknown object appears to doing in the October 7 video.
Another explanation is that it could be a lensflare or camera reflection of part of the ISS itself. However, lensflares and reflections typically happen as sunlight or a strong light source reflects off the sides of a camera lens and/or nearby objects. However, there does not appear to be any strong source of light near the astronauts or camera during the video segment when the UFO appears. The even light in the background of the video during the critical period appears to rule out a lensflare/camera reflection explanation.
The video footage follows incidents earlier in 2014 which showed what appeared to be UFOs visiting the ISS. The most revealing occurred on January 29 and involved live video feed of a yellow elliptically shaped UFO that appeared to actually have docked with the ISS. This raised remarkable possibility that the ISS was being visited by unknown astronauts or even extraterrestrials. To date, no satisfactory answer has been given by NASA for the unknown spacecraft captured on video docking with the ISS.
The October 7 incident cannot be video of either the Dragon X or Soyuz spacecraft which are docked. Nor does it appear to be caused by a lensflare/camera reflection. The elliptical shape of the object is consistent with earlier incidents at the ISS involving UFOs close by or even docking with the ISS. Is it possible that once again, a spacecraft of unknown origin has been captured on video visiting the ISS, this time monitoring a spacewalk by two astronauts?

Edward Snowden has released official documents that show the extent of NSA surveillance of foreign political leaders. According to another NSA whistleblower, Russell Tice, the NSA does the same in the U.S. It conducts regular surveillance of senior U.S. officials including military officers, members of Congress, Supreme Court justices and even members of the executive branch. The goal, Tice claims, is to gain sensitive personal material on such senior U.S. officials for the purpose of blackmailing them into supporting policies favorable to the recipients of the NSA surveillance information. One of the policies is maintaining secrecy about UFOs and their extraterrestrial origins.
In December 2005, Tice came forward to publicly reveal how the NSA and the Defense Intelligence Agency were conducing unlawful wiretaps of U.S. citizens. He revealed to various media sources that among the targets were senior U.S. officials:
They went after high-ranking military officers; they went after members of congress — Senate and the House — especially on the intelligence committees and the armed services committees, lawyers, law firms, judges, State Department officials, part of the White House, multinational companies, financial firms, NGOs, civil rights groups …”
In June 2013, Tice was asked about the potential for blackmail of senior U.S. officials from NSA surveillance files:
Collins: Now Russ, the targeting of the people that you just mentioned, top military leaders, members of Congress, … intelligence committees, … and then executive branch appointees. This creates the basis, and the potential for massive blackmail. Tice: Absolutely! And remember we talked about that before, that I was worried that the intelligence community now has sway over what is going on.
While Tice was not widely believed at the time, the Snowden NSA document leaks have confirmed many of his claims.
In a June 2014 interview with the Washington Blog about forthcoming Snowden based stories of NSA surveillance of U.S. citizens, Tice explained that the Snowden documents belong to a database called the Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System.
These documents are accessible to all within the NSA with the necessary Top Secret and Sensitive Compartmented Information clearance levels. However, Tice claims that there are more restricted NSA information networks based on higher security levels. He describes two of these as Exceptionally Controlled Information (ECI) and Very Restricted Knowledge (VRK). It is in these more secretive networks that Tice found information concerning the surveillance of senior U.S. officials going back as far as the 1970s and the surveillance of Senator Frank Church who led a Senate investigation of the U.S. intelligence community.
Tice revealed that one of the recipients of the NSA’s secret surveillance files of U.S. leaders was former Vice President Dick Cheney:
… the whole thing was being directed and was coming from the vice president’s office … Cheney, through his lawyer David Addington…. all “sneaky pete” under the table, in the evening when most NSA employees are gone for the day. This is all being done in the evenings … between like 7 [at night] and midnight.
According to another whistleblower, Derek Hennessy, Cheney had direct knowledge of a secret UFO program based on extraterrestrial technologies at the highly secret S-4 facility at Area 51. Cheney was therefore well placed to use NSA information to find out who among U.S. officials had received information about UFOs and extraterrestrial technologies. He could use this NSA information to blackmail senior U.S. officials in order to maintain UFO secrecy.
Among the U.S. officials that have been monitored and blackmailed, according to Tice, is President Barack Obama who first came under the radar of the NSA when he became a candidate for the U.S. Senate.
In the summer of 2004, one of the papers that I held in my hand was to wiretap a bunch of numbers associated with a forty-some-year-old senator from Illinois …. That’s who the NSA went after. That’s the President of the United States now.
This helps explains why Obama backtracked on many campaign pledges, including that of the most open and transparent U.S. government in history. Obama’s pledges and choice of administration officials fueled speculation that was being prepared to disclose the truth of UFOs and their extraterrestrial origins.
The Art of Deception is a 50 page powerpoint presentation released by Snowden that confirms deception involving UFOs is part of online covert operations maintained by the NSA and its global intelligence partners. Blackmailing senior U.S. officials into silence would be critical for the success of covert programs aimed at deceiving the public about UFOs. Based on documents released by Snowden and Tice’s earlier revelations, one can conclude that President Obama and senior U.S. officials are blackmailed by recipients of NSA surveillance information on a number of issues, including maintaining secrecy about UFOs and extraterrestrial life.
