Top-Secret UFO files could 'gravely damage' US national security if released, Navy says

This infamous video of the USS Nimitz UFO encounter may not be the only one out there...
In November 2004, several U.S. Navy pilots stationed aboard the USS Nimitz encountered a Tic-Tac-shaped UFO darting and dashing over the Pacific Ocean in apparent defiance of the laws of physics. Navy officials dubbed the strange craft an "unidentified aerial phenomenon," but they have remained mum on what, exactly, that phenomenon could've been. Now, unsurprisingly to anyone who's ever considered making a hat out of tinfoil, the military has confirmed they know more than they're letting on.

In response to a recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, a spokesperson from the Navy's Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) confirmed that the agency possesses several top-secret documents and at least one classified video pertaining to the 2004 UFO encounter, Vice reported.

According to the ONI spokesperson, these documents were either labeled "SECRET" or "TOP SECRET" by the agencies that provided them, and that sharing the information with the public "would cause exceptionally grave damage to the National Security of the United States."

A woman visiting South Florida from Salt Lake City, Utah, was found dead near the hotel where she was staying.

Police were seen early Saturday afternoon removing a body from a large lake that is adjacent to the Fort Lauderdale Westin, located at 400 Corporate Drive.

Authorities later confirmed that the deceased woman was Kelly Glover, who was in South Florida on business and staying at the Westin.

Glover's husband, Adam Bremer, told Local 10 News on Friday that her disappearance was very bizarre.

"Her friend went to bed early (Wednesday)," Bremer said. "My wife was still up. Her friend woke up around 4 a.m. (Thursday), and my wife was nowhere to be found, and the door was left open."

Mysterious drone swarms appear nightly in US Midwest - no federal agency has an explanation

mysterious drones colorado dec 2019
Local and federal authorities are investigating confirmed reports of mysterious drone sightings in northeastern Colorado and Nebraska that appeared in the night sky this week.

Sheriff's offices in Lincoln, Washington and Sedgwick counties have been getting calls this week about the unknown winged devices after initial reports came out of Phillips and Yuma counties, sheriffs said.

The drones reportedly have 6-foot wingspans and fly between 7 and 10 p.m. in gridlike patterns 150 to 200 feet in the air in groups of six to 10, the Denver Post reported.

Yuma County Sheriff Todd Combs said in a Facebook post Tuesday that the drones are flying in airspace controlled by the federal government, however, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the U.S. Air Force, and the U.S. Army Forces Command said they don't have any information.

Comment: Business Insider adds that the drones appear in giant swarms and have been flying every night for the past week over Phillips and Yuma Counties. The drones appear and disappear at roughly the same time each night in swarms of at least 17 and up to 30 and appear to measure about 6 feet across.

Mysterious lights hovering above the east Valley have many wondering if we've had a close encounter.

"It was pretty bright, it was about straight up over here, and it went straight that way, stopped, and it didn't seem like it was too far," said DJ Maier and Kerri Burnett, describing what they saw.

The couple says they spotted the phenomenon outside their Mesa home on Sunday around nine that night.

They say the object seemed to come from the southeast.

Missing 411? Mystery deepens in death of Michigan mom Adrienne Quintal

Adrienne Quintal
Foul play does not appear to be a factor in the disappearance of Michigan mom Adrienne Quintal, whose body was discovered over the weekend after she vanished from her family's cabin more than two months earlier, according to new reports.

Quintal's body was discovered Saturday near a dam roughly 300 yards from the Honor, Mich., cabin she vanished from on Oct. 17.

The day Quintal disappeared, the single mom made a desperate call to family members, claiming two men were outside the cabin shooting while she was indoors.

Benzie County Undersheriff Kyle Rosa told local station WPBN Monday that the results of an initial examination of the body seem to indicate otherwise.

Russian media show video of alleged female bigfoot running by side of road

russian bigfoot
"She has a breast, this is a female!"

That's not the kind of comment one hears on U.S. mainstream media news programs but things are obviously different in Russia, where GRTK.TV covered an expedition to the Republic state of Bashkortostan in southwestern Russia after Bigfoot experts could not explain a video they received from the area showing what looked to them like a female Bigfoot. While the U.S. is becoming more skeptical of political news out of Russia, should it listen to its Bigfoot news?
"This, I think, is the second such case in the world. So convincing. Because it is clear that this creature is running. Moreover, when we studied the freeze frames, I saw there at one turn a bulge - this is a woman's chest. Do you understand? This is a female."
GRTK.TV followed Igor Burtsev, head of the Moscow office of the International Center for Homology, to the Birsky District in northern Bashkortostan (also known as Bashkiria) to investigate what it calls an "amazing and even shocking" video allegedly taken in 2016 by three girls and a young man driving a Zhiguli (a famous and awful car built by the Soviet Union, more commonly known as the Lada). This was an old car (the last one was built in 2014 so it was probably smoking and lurching) and the passengers sounded pretty scared by what the claimed was chasing them. (You can see the video here.) (If the video is blocked, you can see a photo here.)

Comment: The original video is no longer available, but this video includes the footage and some stabilized and enhanced views:

Exorcists condemn Canadian children's book on summoning demons as seductive and dangerous


Comment: Here's the company behind the book, apparently Canadian. The gender-bender agenda literally wishes that demons 'step in' and take over humanity...


Father Francesco Bamonte

A group of international exorcists has raised the alarm about a new children's book teaching kids how to interact with and summon demons, saying the publication is not only a spiritual threat, but is a disguised attempt to lure young people into satanism.

"You don't mess around with demons. Whoever invites a child to summon a demon is like a person who puts a grenade in their hands to play with. Sooner or later the child will pull the pin and the bomb will explode in their hands," the International Association of Exorcists said in a statement last week.

"Whoever invites a child to summon a demon is telling them that it's possible to get help from a criminal to get something. Whoever invites a child to summon a demon is causing them to lose their identity and to be morally, psychologically and spiritually destroyed," they said, adding that those who invite children to summon demons are already "an 'ally' of the demons."

The Brown Mountain Lights - An unexplained 'paranormal' phenomenon that's gone on for centuries

brown mountain lights
What are "paranormal experiences"? I don't really understand the term anymore, it's used to describe events and experiences that are out of the ordinary, it implies that these events are not 'normal.' It's almost 2019, and more people are starting to become aware of the fact that "paranormal" experiences are actually quite normal, quite common, and well documented throughout history. We have evidence in the form of video footage, pictures, and actual physical evidence from several different supposed events. Not only that, 'paranormal' discoveries have been the subject of rigorous investigations by governments and researchers around the world. The 'Stargate' program in the United States, for example, was one that studied these experiences in order to use them for intelligence purposes, and they worked. Here's a great example from the Central Intelligence Agency's electronic reading room about an individual who was able to move solid objects through solid barriers, by simply using his mind. You can read more about that, in-depth, here.

Winged being observed at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport

Mothman
I was at the airport picking up a load at Nippon, I was already backed into a dock and was standing away from the truck smoking a cigarette while they loaded my truck. I was looking toward the runways, in the direction of the tunnel and that is when I noticed something that looked like a large bird standing just outside of the fence by the parking lot. It was not hard to miss because two street lamps were nearby. It looked like a person with wings that were stretched out and flapping. It was walking away from the fence toward the open field and then began to flap its wings and disappeared.
Investigator Notes:
I spoke with the witness via phone and was able to get a little more information regarding this sighting. The witness primarily speaks Spanish but was able to report this sighting with the help of his daughter and her boyfriend. The witness was standing away from his truck as it was being loaded smoking a cigarette when he said he caught movement out of the corner of his eye and saw the being standing near the parking lot and was illuminated by two street lamps.

The witness stated that the creature was about 7 feet tall using the fence as a point of reference. When I asked him how he was able to be so certain as to the height of this being, the driver stated he has been to this location multiple times and he estimates the fence to be about 8 feet high. Using the fence he was certain that the being was at least seven feet tall.

Comment: The Singular Fortean Society, 1/12/2019 Other recent sightings
This sighting location (O'Hare International Airport) is less than 15 miles west of Lake Michigan.

Several other sightings have been reported in the same area, including an October 30th sighting of a large, winged humanoid in Park Ridge, an October 29th report of a winged humanoid accompanied by several other beings, an October 19th sighting of a "giant-sized bat" outside of the Edward Hotel in Rosemont, an October 5th sighting of a "tall creature" with "bright red eyes" and "large wings" near Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, and a report from July of a six-foot-tall creature flying over the Des Plaines River near Rosemont, Illinois.

Mothman sighting
This is the latest news in a string of 'Mothman' sightings from within a few hundred mile radius surrounding Lake Michigan, including every state bordering the great lake. These sightings ostensibly began in the spring of 2017, but more historical accounts are being reported as more people become aware of the phenomenon.

Sightings of weird winged beings around Lake Michigan have been reported at all hours, often in or near a park, and around water. Witnesses consistently describe a large, gray or black bat or bird-like creature — although in a small number of cases the creature was described as insect-like — sometimes with glowing or reflective red, yellow, or orange eyes; and humanoid features such as arms and legs are often reported.

Many of the sightings are also of something seen only briefly or are described only as a flying creature with few details, which leaves open the possibility that a large avian being could explain some encounters. Sightings of anomalous avians, including thunderbirds and pterosaurs, are often reported in or near the same locations as those where witnesses have reported winged humanoids.
