4/26/19: UFO – A NEED TO KNOW W/ PAUL HYNEK
A NEED TO KNOW
MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
When I was finishing up late in the office last night, I became distracted by the overwhelming onslaught of stories about the story in Politico about how the Navy is releasing new guidelines on how military personnel should report UFOS -or U.A.P’s to use the military terminology.
When the story broke the other night, I felt it was advantageous to report it the minute it reached my desk because I felt that this was a huge breakthrough for those who are looking for government’s admission that UFOs exist.
As I was reading through the different newspaper and magazine sites with the breaking news, I realized something that wasn’t obvious at first –and then when I had my epiphany it actually chilled me a bit.
I got to thinking about how several shows back, I talked about the novelty of an alien invasion, how it is entertaining and fun to speculate about UFO’s and aliens – it is the unanswered questions that compel us. We all know that there have been so many questions with more speculation than answers. It always makes for a great discussion.
However, I remember saying that while the novelty is fun, the reality of it all would not be as fun – it certainly makes us think long and hard about where we stand in an unfathomable universe.
We have developed over the years an assumption that the Cold War cover-up of UFO’s and aliens would remain that way and that many investigators were just spinning their wheels and giving us the same old UFO and alien boilerplate.
When the report came in that the Navy was taking the threat of UFOs seriously, the wheels stopped spinning and I realized that something pretty damn convincing had to have happened to get the Navy and the Air Force to change their mind about UFOs and the way they handled reports.
Think about this: in the modern era going back nearly 100 years there have been sightings of unidentified flying objects.
Arguably the intensity of these sighting started happening just before World War II. After World War II flying saucers were part of our culture and from then on there were sightings, and crashes, and reports of aliens.
The military created Project Grudge a short-lived project by the U.S. Air Force to investigate unidentified flying objects. That evolved into Project Sign and then came the public relations fiasco known as Project Blue Book.
Sighting after sighting was met with denial. Roswell was simply a plane crash and the aliens were said to be test dummies found in the New Mexico desert. If anyone were to have witnessed a UFO or even claimed they were contacted by beings, you would get a visit from the infamous men in black.
It has all become fact turned to folklore, but the fact remains buried in the mythology.
Now, the Navy is getting serious about UFO sightings.
It brings me to a very ominous conclusion and that is if the Department of Defense and the military are revising their position, then they certainly do not know what they are dealing with.
To be clear here is the official wording from the Politico on how the Navy is changing their policy:
“There have been a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years,” the Navy said in a statement in response to questions from POLITICO. “For safety and security concerns, the Navy and the [U.S. Air Force] takes these reports very seriously and investigates each and every report.”
“As part of this effort,” it added, “the Navy is updating and formalizing the process by which reports of any such suspected incursions can be made to the cognizant authorities. A new message to the fleet that will detail the steps for reporting is in draft.”
To be clear, the Navy isn’t endorsing the idea that its sailors have encountered alien spacecraft. But it is acknowledging there have been enough strange aerial sightings by credible and highly trained military personnel that they need to be recorded in the official record and studied — rather than dismissed as some kooky phenomena from the realm of science-fiction.”
This is the statement printed in the Washington Post:
“Recently, unidentified aircraft have entered military-designated airspace as often as multiple times per month, Joseph Gradisher, spokesman for office of the deputy chief of naval operations for information warfare, told The Washington Post on Wednesday.
Citing safety and security concerns, Gradisher vowed to “investigate each and every report.”
He said, “We want to get to the bottom of this. We need to determine who’s doing it, where it’s coming from and what their intent is. We need to try to find ways to prevent it from happening again.”
Now I know it would be irresponsible to call this some sort of invasion – but what else can we call it? And while the military has expressed that they are not endorsing the idea that the UFO’s are alien spacecraft there is no real way to distinctly classify something like a UFO in such a way that it gets reported and an investigation occurs on an official level within the military.
Again, the impact of this change of heart should not be ignored—and the importance should send a clear message. It appears that even though there maybe advanced aircraft being tested by adversarial countries – the Department of Defense appears to be flummoxed over just what they are dealing with.
It appears that the military was lax in having a structured procedure and classification system for reporting unknowns –and now after so many years they are changing their minds.
Military personnel have been stigmatized in the past for reporting UFO’s and Military brass have suppressed the conveyance of information in significant ways.
The Military has known more than they wish to let on and again the change in policy can give us all reason to use our imaginations on this issue.
We now can surmise that the change in policy is based in the fact intruders whether human or extra terrestrial have invaded our airspace, have been stalking our Naval fleets with fantastic technology that makes them impervious to existing countermeasures and defenses.
The fact is that since 2014, there’s been an uptick in sightings of weird aircraft in military-designated airspace, as many as multiple sightings a month.
The Washington Post reports:
“In some cases, pilots — many of whom are engineers and academy graduates — claimed to observe small spherical objects flying in formation. Others say they’ve seen white, Tic Tac-shaped vehicles. Aside from drones, all engines rely on burning fuel to generate power, but these vehicles all had no air intake, no wind and no exhaust.”
When the Pentagon program was publicly revealed in 2017, indicating the US government had been keeping track of reported UFO and alien sightings for a number of years; many stories emerged based on the program’s reports and records. One told the story of Naval pilots who, in 2004, tracked a conglomerate of unidentified flying objects for several weeks. According to records reported in the NY Times, “The objects appeared suddenly at 80,000 feet, and then hurtled toward the [Pacific Ocean], eventually stopping at 20,000 feet and hovering. Then they either dropped out of radar range or shot straight back up.”
At one point after a few weeks of monitors, two fighter jet pilots — Commander David Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Jim Slaight were ordered to investigate further, and honed in on the crafts. One unidentifiable, white-colored aircraft reportedly hovered about 50 feet above the water, sending a roiling churn through the sea. According to the record it “around 40 feet long and oval in shape. The craft was jumping around erratically, staying over the wave disturbance but not moving in any specific direction.”
When the pilots headed toward a rendezvous point so they could figure out an approach to the UFOs, the object headed toward it at incredible speed before disappearing entirely. The objects were not seen again and the pilots claimed they were “weirded out” by the whole encounter.
There are also other stories that suggest that something very interesting is happening and that the UFO acknowledgement is only part of the story.
In February 2019, Navy hired third-party contractors to destroy all evidence of its top secret laser weapon research, possibly suggesting that they’ve reached a usable design. On March 23rd we Had David Adair on the program to talk about the Military patents and designs that surfaced online which appear to show an advanced aircraft capable of altering “the fabric of our reality” in order to achieve extreme speeds and maneuverability.
The data dump appeared days before the Navy announced that they were changing their reporting guidelines for UFOs.
David Adair reported about his experiences at Area 51 and gave detailed descriptions of advanced engines and triangular craft that were hidden there. He claimed that he was not sure why what was once considered a black budget aircraft was being leaked on the internet.
Back in 2009, a number of whistleblowers emerged revealing how corporate involvements with black budgets have been achieved. With the advent of “disclosure” and “declassification,” non-military corporate whistleblowers have come forward with hidden information about they have seen.
A recently deceased informant revealed how during the mid-1980s, he worked for six months as an archivist for a large aerospace defense contractor based in California. It was a temporary assignment with his employer at an obscure office building.
The archivist found many files dealing with flying saucers and extraterrestrial life. The files contained: “Reports, photos, media materials (tapes, films, video cassettes) and material from crashed saucers.” When asked where the files came from he revealed the “materials came from everywhere – CIA, Air Force, Navy, Army, DARPA, NORAD, DOD, FBI, and government officials to name most.”
Ben Rich, who is the former CEO of Lockheed Martin Skunk Works, says that many of the classified UFO and alien secrets have been moved from secret “X-Files” in the government and military to corporate Aerospace companies and are protected under corporate secrets laws. This means that even with the freedom of Information act you can come up empty handed about possible reversed engineering, aliens, and any missions into space that are not officially recognized.
Ben Rich again adds that “There are two types of UFOs — the ones we build, and ones THEY build. We learned from both crash retrievals and actual “Hand-me-downs.” The Government knew, and until 1969 took an active hand in the administration of that information. After a 1969 Nixon “purge”, the administration was handled by an international board of directors in the private sector.”
Cynics will tell you that all of these incidents can be chalked up to conspiracy theory because of all the hype and controversy surrounding the facts and information about these new revelations.
However, it is obvious that this is not a theory at all – real people are being used as pawns in this game of advanced weapons and reverse engineered reality.
Chris Mellon, a former Pentagon intelligence official and former member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, has now confirmed that many UFO sightings have been swept under the rug by service members who don’t know how to go about reporting such anomalies.
Weeks before this military disclosure we reported that former U.S. Senator Harry Reid argued that America, China, and Russia are now caught in a “UFO Race,” it’s likely that these new Navy guidelines are geared towards widespread intelligence collection on the state of global aerospace capabilities. If some of the recent alleged disclosures are true, then it appears someone is operating aircraft that can outrun anything the U.S. Air Force possesses.
Before we let our mind wander into the alien piloted UFO territory, we need to use discernment and keep in mind that that technology exists that is capable of performing flying maneuvers that shatter our perceptions of propulsion, flight controls, material science, and even physics.
This is the new reality and it may be hard to process. Of course, we always have to leave an out – for the Navy to say that maybe they jumped the gun – but this is different.
I know that it will spin a lot of impromptu conspiracy theory – but why?
Admitting that the reality of UFO’s was a big hurdle, as uncomfortable as that reality is, it may be time to rethink UFO’s because the military is.
Perhaps this isn’t the disclosure we want right now but it is the kind of disclosure that we need.
