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
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
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
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
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
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.
