Since some of you expressed interest:
“The U.S. Navy now confirms UFO videos made public by the New York Times and a UFO research group back in 2017 are the real deal. What does that mean?” Alisyn Camerota asked.
Now, Tom DeLonge, the Blink-182 guy who’s the founder of the To The Stars Academy, the group involved in the release of these videos, is either an amazing visionary — or a complete nut. If you’ve read any interviews with him, it probably made you think he was, at the very least, maybe a teensy bit paranoid:
To give you an example, one time I remember bringing up a very specific craft that I believe we’re building, in secret, to emulate the phenomenon that our government has been observing for decades. So I started talking about the craft, and its magnetic slide system and how it displaces over 89% of the mass of the ship, how it ionizes the engine, how it glows — I went through the whole thing, and this engineer looks at me, this guy is 70 years old, and he goes, “You better be real fucking careful about what you’re talking about.” And I go, “Okay, so I’m close.” And he goes, “I’m not fucking kidding with you. You better be really fucking careful.” And he calls me up the next day and he goes, “I’ve had calls about you. If someone comes and asks you to get in their car, don’t fucking get in the car.” [laughs] And that’s the shit I’m dealing with.
Well, this story is some small validation for DeLonge — whose name isn’t even mentioned. But I thought it was a significant omission, so I thought I’d mention it. But back to the story.
“The Navy says it still doesn’t know what the objects are and officials aren’t speculating. A Navy spokesman simply confirming the objects seen in various clips are unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs. The UFO reports were first investigated by a secret $22 million program, part of the Defense Department budget that investigated reports of UFOs. The program has since been shut down. But it was run by a military intelligence official who told CNN they found compelling evidence that we, quote, ‘may not be alone.’ Randi Kaye, CNN, New York.”
I stumbled across this site from a link in a local news site, and it’s a clearinghouse for UFO reports. It’s pretty interesting — so far, I found three sightings only a few blocks from where I live! Check it out if you’re interested.
Here’s a UFO recorded in a nearby section of the city. I remember when this first went viral, and I thought, “What? It’s just a cloud!” But if you look carefully, there are lights on the inside and it seems to be somewhat directed.
This one was taken just north of the Hellmouth, where I used to live. It’s interesting because the photographer, Scott Waring, never saw this in real time, he just likes to take 30-second exposures of the night sky and discovered it after. https://www.stwbphotography.com/
Update: Oh, just noticed this.
I’ve been having nightmares about giant waves since I was a kid, so this is a little scary:
I think there’s plenty of credible information that points in this direction, but it’s odd that everyone’s suddenly speaking about it:
The existence of UFOs has “proved beyond reasonable doubt”, a former Pentagon official has said.
Luis Elizondo, the former head of a secret US government programme, believes that Earth may well have been visited by alien life via the unidentified aircraft and that there is also proof.
He resigned from the US Department of Defence in October to protest against the excessive secrecy and opposition to the programme he was in charge of.
Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph , he said: “In my opinion, if this was a court of law, we have reached the point of ‘beyond reasonable doubt’. I hate to use the term UFO but that’s what were looking at.
“I think it’s pretty clear this is not us, and it’s not anyone else, so one has to ask the question where they’re from.”
I think it’s funny as hell that Deadspin editor Tom Ley is flipping out over the NYT disclosures of possible alien spaceships AND THE UNIDENTIFIED ALLOYS:
My question now is: What the fuck are we even doing right now? How are we all just going about our work on a Monday morning after seeing video—which was not taken by some yokel with a cell phone but by the ultra-sophisticated systems of a Super Hornet—of an extremely weird flying object speeding through our skies? How are we doing so after reading this testimonial from one of the pilots who encountered the object?
Hovering 50 feet above the churn was an aircraft of some kind — whitish — that was around 40 feet long and oval in shape. The craft was jumping around erratically, staying over the wave disturbance but not moving in any specific direction, Commander Fravor said. The disturbance looked like frothy waves and foam, as if the water were boiling.
Hahaha. Hahahahahah. Boy, isn’t that strange? What do you think the unidentified craft was doing out there on the ocean? Did you also see the part about the mysterious alloys that have been recovered by our government?
Under Mr. Bigelow’s direction, the company modified buildings in Las Vegas for the storage of metal alloys and other materials that Mr. Elizondo and program contractors said had been recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena. Researchers also studied people who said they had experienced physical effects from encounters with the objects and examined them for any physiological changes.
Ahhhhhhh. Hahahaha. [begins to sweat] The alloys! There are just … alloys. The alloys are sitting in a facility in Las Vegas and we cannot identify what they are made out of. Look, here is one of the authors of the Times piece on MSNBC reiterating that the United States Government cannot determine what these alloys are: [See video.]
So they just, uh, [sweating a lot more now] don’t know what’s going on with the alloys. They don’t know. The alloys are just sitting there, possibly causing physical reactions in people who have come into contact with them. These alloys sound pretty serious. The military seems to be taking these alloys very seriously:
A 2009 Pentagon briefing summary of the program prepared by its director at the time asserted that “what was considered science fiction is now science fact,” and that the United States was incapable of defending itself against some of the technologies discovered. Mr. Reid’s request for the special designation was denied.
[Sweating so profusely that I am now sitting in a puddle of my own anxiety] It’s Monday morning and I’m just going about my day!
I have assumed for a long time that there was a government coverup going on, and that sooner or later, they would start dribbling out stories to get people used to the idea.
I just think it’s funny that so many people have never read anything credible at all on the subject of UFOs. There are a lot of very smart people involved in studying this, even if most of them are treated like Mel Gibson in “Conspiracy Theory.”
