So, Tuesday, Could 17 was the day that the Home Everlasting Choose Committee on Intelligence held its hearings. That is the primary public Congressional listening to about UFOs since 1968. You’ll be able to learn the transcript of the listening to right here. Some sources have been promising dramatic revelations.
Rep. Tim Burchett – a long run advocate for disclosure – advised The Solar On-line he has been knowledgeable by dependable sources that “materials” has been recovered from the objects or craft which have been reported in skies over the US. The Tennessee Republican declined to elaborate additional as he stated the data had been handed to him in a “labeled setting”. “I have been advised by a number of sources now we have recovered one thing from these [crafts or objects],” Mr Burchett advised The Solar On-line.
However there have been none. No secrets and techniques have been “disclosed” – the truth is, we heard from Scott Bray, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence, that the federal government has no proof of ET visitations, and doesn’t possess any wreckage, or organic stays from supposed UAPs. He talked about ‘vary incursions,’ i.e. supposed intrusions into army coaching areas by objects that do not belong there. I’ve written about this earlier. Plainly the Navy solely cares about unidentified objects supposedly getting into their very own personal sandbox. If unidentified objects flip up elsewhere, the Navy apparently would not care. Truly, because the Tic Tac and the Gimble UAP movies in all probability present distant jets, we do not know the way distant they’re, and thus, whether or not or not they’re truly contained in the army coaching space. Possibly it will be higher to talk of unidentified objects sighted from inside such coaching areas, with out making the belief that such objects are literally inside the world.
The listening to was, on the entire, somewhat uninteresting. As you would possibly count on, a lot of it was taken up with bureaucratic speak. Everybody promised that their investigations could be goal and scientific, and that they’d reveal every part they’ve, aside from info that may compromise intelligence sources or strategies. All of which implies nothing, as a result of they may not get away with saying anything! 😏 There was a lot speak about sensors and databases and such, as if such issues have ever produced helpful details about any UFO case.

|Video 1 UAP 2021, the perfect UAP proof that Naval
Intelligence has! Aren’t you impressed???
Only a fast be aware to say I watched the UAP listening to held this morning. It was fairly droll stuff, however I did discover extremely amusing a 5 minute or so section the place a really brief UAP clip was introduced through a lap-top and it was apparent that individuals have been having hassle discovering the UAP in it. Finally somebody is ready to cease it in the precise place to see a small streak of sunshine flitting previous the aircraft.
75 years of ufo thriller and we’re nonetheless having to endure blobs and specks of sunshine like they show something.
Certainly. The article of their “Video 1 UAP 2021” was so insignificant and troublesome to see that it needed to be performed time and again a number of instances earlier than the item was even seen. When lastly it was caught in a freeze body, it was only a tiny spherical object with no particulars. Very seemingly this was only a balloon that the plane flew previous at a excessive price of velocity. They present this as a few of their greatest proof, and we’re supposed to not snicker?
Then Bray confirmed two movies “taken by means of night time imaginative and prescient ‘goggles,’ with a single lens reflex digital camera.” I used to be making an attempt to check the way you connect a single lens reflex digital camera to nighttime imaginative and prescient goggles, and at last concluded that you do not. I feel he means, this was taken with a digital camera held as much as the eyepiece of the goggles. Excessive tech!!! The objects, he says, “stay unsolved.” Not less than he appeared to appreciate that the triangular form of the objects was an artifact of the digital camera diaphragm (“Bokeh,” to be precise). However the objects themselves are, he stated, unidentified.
|Dylan the Villain posted this on Twitter, figuring out the objects seen in the beginning of the video as Jupiter, and several other stars in Scorpius. Apparently this was too troublesome for Naval Intelligence to determine.|
Rep. Rick Crawford (Republican from Arkansas) form of staked out his place because the skeptic on the committee. He started by saying that he’s extra involved about finding out Chinese language and Russian hypersonic weapons than UAPs. However since finding out UAP stories would possibly yield info on such weapons, “I’m on board. The intelligence neighborhood has a severe obligation to our taxpayers to forestall potential adversaries equivalent to China and Russia from stunning us with unexpected new applied sciences.” Later within the listening to, Crawford remarked to Ronald S. Moultrie, Below Secretary of Protection Intelligence & Safety (USDI&S) that the decision and particulars of the UAP pictures we have been proven are merely horrible. We’re “calibrating” our sensors, Moultrie replied.
What was maybe probably the most distressing second of the whole listening to was towards the tip, when Darin LaHood (Republican from Illinois) requested, what are the implications for people and teams who put out false details about UAPs? Moultrie replied that no person has to date been held legally accountable. What’s the deterrent for such people for Disinformation or Misinformation? I do not know, Moultrie replied, Congress must determine this.
In different phrases, some persons are desperate to have Biden’s new Ministry of Fact adjudicate, censor, and maybe punish, these selling “false info” about UFOs. Now, I’ve been debunking “misinformation” about UFOs for a few years, however this is likely one of the worst concepts I heave ever heard on that topic. In fact, a lot of what’s stated about UFOs by distinguished UFOlogists is pure “misinformation,” however I’m terrified on the considered some authorities company deciding what’s true and what is not, and punishing offenders. I imply, Steven Greer and Corey Goode could be serving life sentences. That is the land of the free (or at the least it was once), and the thought of the federal government policing discourse, deciding what might be freely stated and what can not, would set up a full-blown political tyranny, the place disagreeing with our rulers is punishable, simply as within the days of the Divine Proper of Kings. Liberals used to say, I would disagree with what you say, however I’ll defend to the demise your proper to say it. In the present day’s liberals say, if I disagree with what you say, you have to be silenced, and possibly even punished. Be afraid, be very afraid.
For these to check at present’s Congressional listening to with the one 54 years in the past, the total file of the 1968 hearings is on-line right here. The format was fairly totally different from what we’re seeing now. A formidable-looking listing of ‘UFO consultants’ was assembled to inform the U.S. Home Committee on Science and Astronautics that UFOs are one thing crucial, and have to be studied.

Seeing Carl Sagan among the many audio system, you would possibly suppose that he was invited as a ‘token skeptic.’ Alas, it isn’t so. In his testimony to the 1968 hearings, Carl Sagan stated:
I would point out that, on this symposium, there are not any people who strongly disbelieve within the extraterrestrial origin of UFO’s and due to this fact there’s a sure view, not essentially one I strongly agree with — however there’s a sure view this committee will not be listening to at present, alongside these traces.
In different phrases, Sagan was saying that there have been no robust skeptics on that panel. (Donald Menzel was solidly skeptical, however whereas he submitted a paper, he was not on the panel.) Since Sagan was himself on the panel, it is apparent that Sagan didn’t himself “strongly disbelieve” within the ETH at the moment.
I don’t suppose the proof is in any respect persuasive, that UFO’s are of clever extraterrestrial origin, nor do I feel the proof is convincing that no UFO’s are of clever extraterrestrial origin. I feel as every of the previous audio system has talked about, however maybe not sufficiently emphasised, that the query could be very a lot an open one, and it’s definitely too quickly to harden attitudes and make any everlasting contentions on the topic.
That feels like one thing written by Marcello Truzzi! Klass referred to Sagan’s ET ambiguity a number of instances in personal correspondence. Klass advised that Sagan would say something he thought would assist to get his SETI funded. He did not belief Sagan, as many others didn’t, partially as a result of Sagan was blaming the Chilly Conflict and the arms race on US nuclear weapons insurance policies (however not on Soviet ones). Sagan gave the impression to be rooting for the ‘different facet.’
