Things are not all that great in the world of UAPs, which I mention using the new acronym for UFOs here to distinguish it from the world of UFOs which is a separate entity. Just Wednesday night, at the first Republican debate, Chris Christy was asked about an encounter with alien creatures. His answer was poorly formed and does nothing to suggest that many attitudes have changed, even with the supposedly positive discussions held at some high government levels.
Some that was seen when Kirsten Gillibrand, in a speech in Glens Falls, mentioned UFOs. The crowd reaction floated somewhere around derision. There was laughter when she moved to the subject of UFOs. It might be that she referred to the Navy pilots and David Grush as some pilots and the second guy. Not sure why she didn’t name names here but the real point was the negative crowd reaction.
Although she seems to believe in AARO and that Sean Kirkpatrick is competent and capable, I have seen nothing to suggest that he has entered the arena as an unbiased source. In the various hearings and briefings, he has been a part of, he has provided very little in the way of investigative evidence. He seems more interested in the logistics of the investigation as opposed to the gathering and review of that evidence.
The worse part of this that she suggested that Congress might never get the truth about the Special Access Programs known as SAP. Although Grusch had said he knows the names of those involved in the creation of the UFO programs and that he has the names of firsthand witnesses, we still haven’t heard much about it and the little information we do have is somewhat disturbing. It does seem that the plan is to drag all this out until the public tires of it or a new administration can kill it.
Confirmation of this came earlier today when Chris Mellon said that he thought there was little prospect of further hearings about UFOs by the House Oversight Committee though there is still legislation that provides precedence for declassifying UFO information. That might be the one positive here.
However, Mike Turner of Ohio, who chairs the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has convinced James Comer who is the Chair of the House Oversight Committee that additional hearings could harm the reputation of the DoD and further hearings should be avoided. This seems to suggest there will be no more hearings on the topic, at least in the near future, and that would surely affect the disclosure of information.
Further, Turner disregards Grush’s testimony though there are members of the committee who take it seriously. I have worried about Grusch’s mention of the Italian UFO crash, which is apparently a hoax could undermine some of support that Grusch has had recently.
I wonder if they have had the classified briefings in which Grusch named names and provided the documentation. If so, that testimony wasn’t overly persuasive and there must have been some problems with the documents. If there were problems in those classified briefings, if they were actually held, that might explain some of the reluctance to support Grusch’s whistleblower claims.
I suppose that I should note that some of Turner’s campaign donors are large Defense and Aerospace organizations. This amounts to something over a hundred thousand dollars. That might have had some influence on his decisions concerning UFOs, though there are other donors who provided a great deal more money who are probably not interested in UFOs.
But there is some good news. Stan Gordon, who began investigating UFOs in the 1960s, and is the force behind the research into the Kecksburg UFO crash of 1965, hosts a website called Stan Gordon’s UFO Anomalies Zone. It covers a range of paranormal phenomena, though my interest is in the UFO sightings.
As an example, is a
sighting reported on August 3 of this year from the downtown section of
Latrobe, Pennsylvania. The witness, who was taking an early morning walk when
he spotted a series of lights that he first thought was an aircraft. As the
light approached, he saw a solid dark triangular-shaped object.
He said, at the bottom was one white, steady light on each corner of the triangle, and in the center was a single steady red light. Along the sides were more white, steady lights. He said that the craft was about one hundred to two hundred feet long from point to point and was flying at about 1500 feet. The UFO made no noise.
For those who ask why we don’t have any good UFO footage because nearly everyone is carrying a good quality digital camera in a pocket, here’s part of the answer. The man took video of the UFO and saw the image on the phone screen. When he got home and tried to review the video, there was no image. He said that he didn’t know why it didn’t record. He also said that he watched the object for about three minutes.
Stan also reported on what he called a surge of activity over the July 28 to 30th of this year. Some of the reports related to Bigfoot hunting in which I was uninterested. On July 29, Gordon got a phone call from a witness who said that he had seen a massive, triangular-shaped object that emitted a bright greenish-orange glow. The UFO was hovering when he first saw it. The UFO then vanished only to reappear. There seemed to be an electric hum coming from it.
Here's why this is interesting. The witness took pictures with his cell phone. He could see the UFO on the phone, but the photographs showed a blurred image. He didn’t understand why that happened but it does suggest there might be some sort of electronic emission, invisible to the eye that affects the digital cameras. Before you laugh, remember, there are hundreds of reports of UFOs stalling cars and affecting other electronic devices.
