Saturday night: Ex-Pentagon whistleblower warns of UFO 9-11

Spread the love

A Pentagon investigator resigned because he felt the UFO issues were not being taken seriously enough:

A former Pentagon investigator who claims to have run a hush-hush UFO program has warned that an upcoming blockbuster report about “unidentified aerial phenomena” could reveal a failure by US intelligence agencies on par with 9/11.

Luis “Lue” Elizondo, former head of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, has told The Post about the document slated for release in June under a mandate contained in former President Donald Trump’s $2.3 trillion appropriations bill for this year.

The whistleblower said the highly anticipated report will address what UFO believers have been clamoring to discover about Tic Tac-shaped objects the Navy saw in 2004, the strange “cubes within spheres” seen by naval aviators in 2014 and mysterious black triangles reported around the world.

Now this is interesting: Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb, author of Extraterrestrial, put out by a respected publisher, claims that Oumuamua was an extraterrestrial light sail (and we’re too dumb to realize it). Other astronomers think it’s a chunk of nitrogen ice from Pluto. Such dull sticks those other astronomers are…

The remarkable thing is that we haven’t found so much as a fossil bacterium in recent Mars samples. The belief that whatever’s weird out there must be aliens is a sheer act of faith. The same people who would dismiss massive evidence for design in the universe and life forms believe in ET with no evidence at all. That’s probably because, at heart, their commitment is one of the few types of religion that naturalism permits.

    The New Yorker has a long and reasonably objective article on the same subject.

    Still, I’m automatically suspicious of establishment “open-mindedness”.

    Since 1946 the government has been writing both sides of the script on this issue, along with all other issues. A “retired” official encourages the heretic side to bring them out of the woodwork, then the unretired officials smash the heretic side.

    Strawman.

    At least something you and the religion of naturalism have in common: dismissal of a massive amount of credible evidence.

    There is plenty of evidence for UFOs and extraterrestrials. Denying and ignoring it isn’t going to make it go away.

    Given an intelligently designed universe extraterrestrials are also a given.

    AndyClue –

    I think you misunderstand news’ point. It’s not that the phenomena aren’t real. It’s just that there is literally *no* evidence connecting it to another planet. That’s pure conjecture and storytelling.

    As recommended by those here, I read the Sturrock Report. Sure wish I could witness some of the things the people therein claim to have seen…

    This quote from the abstract stuck with me, though: “…there was no convincing evidence pointing to unknown physical processes or to the involvement of extraterrestrial intelligence.”

    No, I don’t think I’ve misunderstood news’ point at all. Do you thinkg the aliens originate from a sun? From empty space? Where do you think the resources for their technology come from?

    Whoever these aliens are they must have known man was about to add a camera to their mobile phones , as the aliens seem to be no longer available for blurry ,fuzzy photographs ,or photos of any kind, now that we all have a camera on our person at all times.

    Marfin- the other day I saw a hawk being pushed by the wind. By the time I took out my phone and got to the camera mode, it was gone. Phones do not take good pictures of objects at a distance.

    ET: Phones do not take good pictures of objects at a distance.

    Before we all had mobile phones there were many instances of people claiming to have photos of flying saucers. There are several classic examples. The cameras available at the time were generally of less quality than today’s smart phones. And not everyone carried one around with them. So the photos we do have would have been (like the fossil record) very hit and miss.

    So, the question is: with many, many more people having fairly good cameras with themselves at all times why aren’t we getting a lot more photos of alien spacecraft?
