According to insiders involved in establishing an Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) related Prospective Special Access Program (PSAP) within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), DHS staff emerged from meetings with two other U.S. government agencies, rumored to possess advanced non-human materials, 'convinced that advanced technology was sequestered under government supervision at aerospace contractors' facilities.'

The book, titled Skinwalkers at the Pentagon details how in 2011 high-level officials at the DHS, Sacha Mover and Jim Bell, 'began knocking on doors beyond DHS to connect with the "keepers of the secrets" in at least two other agencies.'

The account continues:
'In these meetings, which took place in June-July 2011, Sacha, Jim, and colleagues were treated rudely and harshly.'

'Bell and Mover were repeatedly told "no, and hell no."'
The narrative of these events was penned by journalist George Knapp, along with Dr. James Lacatski and Dr. Colm Kelleher.

Kelleher and Lacatski led the Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications Program (AAWSAP) and Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS) within the U.S. government's Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), focusing on the investigation of UAP.


SOTT Focus: Tucker Carlson on Joe Rogan Podcast: 'UFOs and Intelligences Behind Them are Essentially Supernatural'

carlson ufo aliens rogan
UFOs and their pilots might not be 'extra-terrestrials' from a distant planet at all, but 'spiritual entities' who have inhabited Earth for as long as humanity itself.

At least, that's the 'supernatural' theory Fox News vet and one-time MSNBC host Tucker Carlson put forward this week on comedian Joe Rogan's podcast.

'There's a ton of evidence that they're under the ocean and under the ground,' Carlson told Rogan's listeners during the show's usual, sprawling, three-hour-long chat format, adding: 'They've been here for a long time.'

Carlson's latest comments echo an increasingly common refrain from UFO-curious lawmakers, including Missouri Congressman Eric Burlison and his fellow GOP legislator Tim Burchett, who both compared UFOs to Biblical entities in the past year.

'The first chapter of Ezekiel is pretty clear of a UFO sighting,' Rep. Burchett told reporters in January of 2023, ahead of his push to bring UFO whistleblowers to testify before Congress last summer.

'Whenever I use the term "angels,"' added Rep. Burlison, who has been privy to classified briefings on the UFO phenomena, 'to me, it's synonymous with an extradimensional being.'

Comment: The last bit is interesting, especially given that a key figure in the DIA until 2016 when he attempted to emerge from behind the scenes into public office - but was thwarted by, well, demonic forces - was General Michael Flynn.

This apparently astonishing ability of Carlson to, in just a few short years, go from MSM newscaster to leapfrog even Joe Rogan in understanding the deep questions about the nature of our reality speaks to why religious households, generally, produce more intelligent people than secular ones. At least, they generally produce people with a sounder basis upon which to later, maybe, begin to 'quest for truth' and really learn to 'see the unseen'.

Carlson on the 'alien' phenomenon:

Rogan, for all his reputation as an 'open mind', when discussing this topic with Carlson, comes across to us as being comparatively narrow-minded and anthropocentric. The irony here is that he's the one who used psychedelics to 'see the unseen'... did that backfire?

The whole Rogan podcast with Carlson:


Canada joins secret Pentagon meeting on UFOs - DND can't figure out who attended

sky canada project
After an initial meeting on sharing information with allies on unidentified flying objects, the Canadian military has cooled on its interest in the extraterrestrial file.

The Canadian Forces do not have any plans for additional meetings with allies at this point and will not be working with the federal government's science advisor on the phenomena, National Defence confirmed to this newspaper.

Last year, a U.S. defence scientist revealed that allied militaries had met at the Pentagon to discuss sharing data on what is officially referred to as Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena or UAP.

At the time, National Defence confirmed that a Royal Canadian Air Force officer attended the meeting in May 2023.

Department spokeswoman Andrée-Anne Poulin said what was discussed at the gathering remains secret. She noted the discussions centered around sharing information on the subject of UAPs.

Comment: The Canadian government's public handling of the UFO problem is arguably even more laughably inept than the Americans'. There is already U.S.-Canadian collaboration on the topic, but it remains classified. The Canadians involved here are either dumb or just playing dumb.

Drones or UFOs? Alarming incursions demand answers

The U.S. military is confronting an unsettling phenomenon. Over the last five years, a series of bizarre — and remarkably brazen — "drone swarms" have overwhelmed key Department of Defense facilities and assets, including nuclear missile silos. Notably, some of the objects appear to exhibit unconventional technology.

As Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, stated on April 9, "We see consistent incursions around sensitive government facilities."

Despite the U.S. government's sweeping investigative authorities and abilities, the puzzling incidents remain a mystery. None have been decisively tied to foreign or domestic actors.

For its part, the Pentagon has been unwilling or perhaps unable to present any photographic or video evidence that conventional drones are responsible for the most perplexing encounters. Asked whether he had seen any images of the objects, Kelly responded "no."

In December 2023, for example, large numbers of unidentified "drones" appeared regularly over Langley Air Force Base in Virginia.


New documentation reveals significant flaws in US government's UFO investigation

In a recent document dump by the Department of Defense (DoD), provided to The Black Vault website, confirmation has emerged regarding news initially reported by Liberation Times earlier this year.

The documents affirmed that David Grusch, a former senior intelligence officer and whistleblower on Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP), deliberated on presenting testimony and evidence concerning purported U.S. government activities in the retrieval and reverse engineering of non-human materials to the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), the DoD's UAP office.

Concerns about AARO, as a third party, being exposed to information provided securely and legally by Grusch to the Intelligence Community's Inspector General and Congress, while there is an ongoing DoD IG Whistleblower Reprisal Investigation, led to his decision not to provide evidence and testimony.

Top Secret

The Pentagon's new UAP report is seriously flawed

Last month the U.S. government's new UAP investigation office, the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), submitted a report to Congress entitled, "Report on the Historical Record of U.S. Government Involvement with Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena" (UAP, the new term for UFO). This new report is itself anomalous for several reasons.

First, who ever heard of a government report being submitted months before it was due? Especially one so rife with embarrassing errors in desperate need of additional fact-checking and revision? Was AARO Director Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick rushing to get the report out the door before departing, perhaps to ensure that his successor could not revise or reverse some of the report's conclusions?

Second, this appears to be the first AARO report submitted to Congress that the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) did not sign off on. I don't know why, but Avril Haines and her Office were quite right not to in this case, having spared themselves considerable embarrassment in the process.

Third, this is the most error-ridden and unsatisfactory government report I can recall reading during or after decades of government service. We all make mistakes, but this report is an outlier in terms of inaccuracies and errors. Were I reviewing this as a graduate student's thesis it would receive a failing grade for failing to understand the assignment, sloppy and inadequate research, and flawed interpretation of the data. Hopefully, long before it was submitted, the author would have consulted his or her professor and received some guidance and course correction to prevent such an unfortunate outcome.


Western US residents report the most UFO sightings

Those of us in the western U.S. who enjoy vast open spaces may also be more likely to report UFO sightings, a new study suggests.

An analysis of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) reports (UAP is a new umbrella term that includes UFOs not just in the sky but also in space and underwater) suggests local environmental factors play a role in the number of UAP sightings reported.

The study, based on about 98,000 reports over 20 years as cataloged in an open-source, online dataset maintained by the National UFO Research Center (NUFORC), modeled how reported UAP sightings coincide with environmental variables such as light pollution and cloud cover, as well as things like proximity to airports and military installations. The results reveal the majority of reported sightings originate in the western U.S., along with a smaller hotspot in the northeastern U.S.

"It was completely unexpected," Richard Medina, a geographer at the University of Utah who led the study, told Space.com. "It's difficult to explain why we have this many more sightings in the West."


French couple 'disappears' while hiking in Madeira - Portuguese island records 6 'missing tourist' cases in 3 years

The search for missing tourist couple Laurent and Véronique Blond on the north coast of the island of Madeira has been suspended since Tuesday due to bad weather, the public security police service (PSP) said today - adding that the operation could soon be called off for good.

"At the moment, weather conditions don't allow us to continue the search. It has been suspended. We are working on information and, depending on whether we have new information, we will decide whether or not to resume the search" explained Commissioner João Góis, speaking to journalists in Funchal.

Góis said that if the operation is resumed, the perimeter of the investigation will be widened, as the area closest to where the tourists were staying, in Fajã da Areia, in the parish and district of São Vicente, has already been " thoroughly searched more than once".

"On Monday, we searched again, because the weather conditions allowed it. We went out with our search, rescue and mountain rescue brigade and we also had the support of the Civil Protection and National Republican Guard drone teams," he said.

João Góis reiterated that "the possibility of not resuming the search" is now on the table if there is "no more evidence, no more information".

Comment: 'Missing 411' cases expert David Paulides discussed the 4 earlier cases of missing mountain-runners/hikers on Madeira in this episode of his show from December 2022:


Flashback Alienated: Peter Levenda on the alien 'threat' narrative

Ex–Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge
© LeAnn MullerEx–Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge
There has been some Twitter controversy lately over a tweet from Tom DeLonge concerning the UFO Phenomenon and the threat it poses to human life on Earth. It seems that people have definite ideas about all of this, and they do not hesitate to make them known in response. This is my attempt to clarify my own position. I do not speak for Tom, of course, but I do believe that too many assumptions have been made by critics of Tom and of To The Stars that confuse the issue unnecessarily.

First of all, it seems that one of the major criticisms of Tom's position is that he is somehow a shill for the Pentagon or the CIA or some military group or cabal. I have seen the term "war monger" used, as well. If one takes the position that the Phenomenon is dangerous to humans, it stands to reason - according to this critique - that the person taking that position is a government stooge. What is the purpose of being a government stooge, then? Why, it's to increase US government defense spending, of course.

There are a few things wrong with that theory when it comes to the Phenomenon, however.

In the first place, US spending on defense far outstrips those of the next nine countries combined (and that includes China and Russia). No one needs Tom talking about UFOs to have any appreciable effect on the defense budget. The amount of money spent so far by the US government on UFO research is minuscule. If it were to double or triple, it would still be minuscule and not approach the cost of, for instance, the cheapest single line item in the 2017 Defense Budget of $89 million for rolling airframe missile systems (a surface-to-air system for defending ships against missile attacks). If we are not talking about UFO research, though, but defense systems against possible UFO attacks, then we have another problem:


Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies publishes pattern study 1945-1975 military and public activities

uap scu
The Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU) released the following announcement:

Today, the SCU published the following peer-reviewed study: UAP Activity Pattern Study 1945-1975 Military and Public Activities, by SCU members Larry J. Hancock, Ian M. Porritt, Sean Grosvenor, and Larry Cates. The new study is the third in a series of examinations of unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP) activity in the post-World War II era.

This new study examined UAP incidents over three decades (1945-1975), revealing a pattern of activity associated with public reports during the study period, and found that reports shifted from high visibility daylight observations at a distance to nighttime close approaches to the observers during the study period. In addition, the focus of UAP activity shifted from the military to the public arena, with increased close approaches to observers. UAP loitering for extended periods near the observers was found to have been observed primarily at night rather than in daylight. Military loitering incidents were reported more frequently from 1949 to 1959, while the public reporting loitering incidents became much more frequent during a short period from 1966-1967.

The nature of the UAP activity also changed over time, from an early period of high visibility - with frequent daylight observations of multiple UAPs (often observed to be disc-shaped) in controlled, interactive flight, with radical maneuvers such as instantaneous acceleration vertically from a hovering position, radar-tracked speeds exceeding 9,000 miles per hour, and 90 degree turns without speed changes. More often noted in military reports were evident activities such as radical speeds and acceleration and maneuvering multiple UAPs during interactive flight. In addition, reports of numerous objects in groups (primarily in the daytime) peaked in 1952 and trended downwards in subsequent years.
