This week, I decided to take a look at the UFO situation without the benefit of a guest. Periodically, I just think it’s time to review what is going on in the world of the UFO from my perspective, which is, of course, a different perspective.
In the first segment, I looked at the idea that Disclosure might be coming closer with the release of the Navy videos and the Navy’s confirmation that the video was authentic. I believe that some thought it meant the image was of an alien spacecraft. It just meant that the video had been filmed by a Navy pilot, not that the image was anything other than an artifact created by the technology rather than something real.
All this affects the idea of Disclosure, and that this might be a way of diverting attention from Disclosure. I noted the trouble of two cultures or two civilizations meeting and the consequences of that. This was a suggestion as to why Disclosure might be as close as we thought. It was a point that I returned to later in the show. You can listen to this, and the rest of the show here:
In the Second segment, I touched on some of the past guests who were less than fully cognizant of the UFO situation. Rather than go through this again, I’ll just point to other postings that cover the information in more detail.
For those interested in my discussions with Lawrence Spencer and his claim of receiving material from a nurse stationed in Roswell in 1947, you can read about it here:
Of course, as with the following two former guests as well, you can listen to those shows by using the Embedded Audio Player on the left. Just scroll through the list until you find the right program.
I did talk about Christopher Montgomery, who had slung several allegations at me on other programs and in his book. You can read about that here:
Finally, is Robert Gross, who thought he had found a viable explanation for the Roswell crash. He hung up before we finished the show because, well, it had devolved into my questions and his answer of “No Comment.” You can read about it here:
My real gripe, as I talked with these men was that they didn’t seem to have a good grasp on the subject. They didn’t follow up on their theories with the proper documentation and research. They didn’t follow the path to the end.
One of the ways I illustrated this was my search for the soldiers from Company F, who had accompanied George Custer into the Battle of the Greasy Grass (known by others as Custer’s Last Stand). The point was, in the world today, I was able to find a company roster with the names of each of the men with very little trouble. I’ll have more on this when I find the answers to my questions about their fate (and no, all of them didn’t die with their company, which intrigues me).
In the third segment, I talked about the nonsense of changing UFO to UAP. Although there are a number of people who believe that UFO means alien spacecraft, I think that the majority out there know that UFO means something that is unidentified. Some of us, Stan Friedman, Don Schmitt and I returned to using flying saucer when we meant an alien craft. That makes it clear. Everyone understood. None of this nonsense about an “unidentified aerial phenomenon.”
I did mention that Coral Lorenzen of APRO had started using UAO, meaning “unidentified aerial object.” Not as clean as UFO and still mentioned an object suggesting something more solid that a phenomenon. Anyway, it is a matter of semantics and you have to wonder if this change wasn’t introduced just to confuse the issue rather than to clarify it.
This seemed to be rewriting history, encompassing both the Robertson Panel and the Condon Committee. Although both were wrapped in the mantle of scientific research, both were, in fact, attempts to end public interest in UFOs. The conclusions of the Condon Committee were written before the investigation began… and strangely, the findings of the committee were those outline by the Air Force in the Hippler letter, which shouldn’t have ended up in the public’s hands. You can read the details here:
Finally, I got around to UFOs and the Deep State. I noted that if the book had been written this year rather than last, there would have been more information about the longevity of the Deep State and how it operates. We see it as those appointed to positions of power in the Biden Administration are those who have served in the federal government for decades in other Administrations including those led by Republicans.
I answered the question about the persistence of the secrecy. Why, today, after decades of exposure to UFO reports, investigations, sightings, and information, does the truth remain classified? It has nothing to do with a fear of panic and everything to do with retaining power. This is all outlined in the book.
Next up is a discussion with Don Schmitt about the current state of UFO research and where we think it is headed. If you have questions, append them here, and we’ll talk about it.
