The Paranormal Roots of the Pentagon's UFO Program

The ridge on the ranch known as the “path of the Skinwalker” for the frequent reports of paranormal activity in the area.
At the end of 2017, The New York Times broke the story of a secretive Pentagon program with a budget of $22 million to investigate UFOs called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). The man who exposed the existence of the program, Luis Elizondo, was the former head of the project. Elizondo's ongoing efforts to investigate the UFO mystery with his new employer, the To the Stars Academy (TTSA), will be featured in a History Channel series premiering May 31 called Unidentified: Inside America's UFO Investigation.

However, what The New York Times apparently did not know when they published their story is that the program went by a different name at its inception, and the scope of the program was much broader than just UFOs. In fact, according to a senior manager on the project, the investigations included "bizarre creatures, poltergeist activity, invisible entities, orbs of light, animal and human injuries and much more."

It is unknown whether Unidentified will cover the paranormal aspects of the program. Although Elizondo did work with this paranormal project, he only worked in the UFO division. By the time he was the head of the entire program, the UFO division was all that was left. The rest of the program had been shut down, and you will never guess why. It wasn't because people inside the Department of Defense (DoD) thought the program was too weird, although some did. It was shut down because of demonic forces.

Don't worry, demons didn't attack the Pentagon, but apparently, some people inside the government were afraid the potentially paranormal incidents being investigated could be demonic, especially scary occurrences taking place at a ranch in Utah, and they wanted no part of it. They didn't want the government messing with demons either, so they lobbied for the program to be ended and it was.

This may sound extremely odd, but according to those involved, it's true.

Stanton Friedman, a nuclear physicist devoted to uncovering what he could about alien life, has died. He was 84.
Stanton Friedman, the famed UFO researcher based in Fredericton, has died.

Friedman was returning from for a speaking engagement in Columbus, Ohio, when he died suddenly at the Toronto Pearson Airport on Monday night, according to his family.

He was 84.

A nuclear physicist by training, Friedman had devoted his life to researching and investigating UFOs since the late 1960s.

He was credited with bringing the 1947 Roswell Incident - the famous incident that gave rise to theories about UFOs and a U.S. military coverup - back into the mainstream conversation.

He was an accomplished writer, publishing dozens of papers on the subject and writing or co-writing several books.

Churches combine forces in Rome to learn best exorcism practices because of rise in possession cases

exorcist
Exorcism is going multi-denominational. Where once those competing for the souls of followers would burn each other as heretics and spur decades-long wars, different Christian denominations are now rallying together to battle a resurrected threat.

And that's no less than Satan himself.

The Roman Catholic Church has for the first time opened up its annual exorcism class in Rome to representatives of all major Christian faiths. The Pontifical University of Regina Apostolorum is a Vatican-affiliated university in Rome has been conducting the increasingly popular annual exorcism conventions for Catholic priests for the past 14 years.

But now the doors of the 14th Exorcism and Prayer of Liberation Course has been thrown open to groups once considered heretical and demon-infested only a few short centuries ago.

Now some 250 Catholics, Lutherans, Greek Orthodox and Protestant priests have assembled to arm themselves with the sword of the holy word to battle Satan amid the souls of their parishioners.

It is itself a dark art, born of a dark age.

The Catholic Church, however, insists demonic possession is on the rise.

It appears that in the hunt for extra-terrestrial life, the ocean waters of our planet could hold intriguing answers, with more and more alien-seeking enthusiasts persisting in their search not only on the ground, but also beneath.

A self-proclaimed UFO expert has claimed that there is an "underwater alien base" lying beneath the surface of the Great Lakes in North America, making reference to an extraordinary phenomenon caught on camera and publicised online.

A set of snapshots shared by Christine McNaughton‏ (@chancesmommy) showed the sun encircled by four distinct reddish rainbow-like rings as it went down, lighting up the skies all around the area.

Top Secret

What The Hell Is Going On With UFOs And The Department Of Defense?

This UFO footage released by the Defense Department shows a remarkable UFO captured on camera onboard the Navy F / A-18 Super Hornet chasing the unidentified flying object
Few stories have garnered more requests from our readers for commentary than the recent news that the Navy has decided to very publicly change its reporting rules and procedures for when its personnel observes an unexplained phenomenon like a UFO and a USO.

There have been wildly varying takes on this sudden change, but the truth is that it is very hard to know what to make of it considering how absurd it sounds-the Navy now wants to know about unidentified craft that can penetrate airspace over its installations and around its most capable naval vessels with impunity? Shouldn't that be a default position for a service tasked with defending American interests and controlling vast swathes of area above, below, and on the surface of the Earth?

Mysterious 'UFO' spotted falling from sky during thunderstorm
AN alien spacecraft has been filmed falling from the skies after being struck by lightning, a prominent UFO proponent has alleged.

And the latest proof of an alien spaceship exploring Earth has arrived today, according to wild online reports. For the shocking footage is said to show a UFO falling to the ground after being caught in a thunderstorm over England.

Self-proclaimed UFO expert Scott C Waring uploaded the blink-and-you'll-miss-it clip today

Waring wrote on his ufosightingsdaily.com blog: "In the video this dark UFO fell from the sky.

"It is very thin, yet compared to the buildings in the background, it is probably close to 30m long and 4m wide.

"The UFO falls directly under the location of where lightning exploded, so it appears that an object was struck by the lightning and fell."

UK police: 'Drone' that shut down Gatwick Airport for days last December 'could see what was happening on runways, was eavesdropping on radio communications'

UK military deployed equipment at the airport to 'catch' the 'drone' but it evaded them every time
The drone attack that caused chaos at Gatwick before Christmas was carried out by someone with knowledge of the airport's operational procedures, the airport has said.

A Gatwick chief told BBC Panorama the drone's pilot "seemed to be able to see what was happening on the runway".

Sussex Police told the programme the possibility an "insider" was involved was a "credible line" of inquiry.

About 140,000 passengers were caught up in the disruption.

The runway at the UK's second busiest airport was closed for 33 hours between 19 and 21 December last year - causing about 1,000 flights to be cancelled or delayed.

In his first interview since the incident, Gatwick's chief operating officer, Chris Woodroofe, told Panorama: "It was clear that the drone operators had a link into what was going on at the airport."

Comment: Yes, it was a 'drone' alright, a really OUT THERE one with intelligence beyond our ken!

From AAWSAP to AATIP: How the Pentagon's UFO program changed names, and focus

Luis Elizondo

Luis Elizondo at the SCU AAPC conference March 15, 2019.
On Dec. 2017, the New York Times published a story about a secretive UFO program ran out of the Pentagon. The project the NYT referred to was the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). However, since the NYT posted their article, more information has come to light, and it turns out the program had a different name in 2007 when it began.

There has been a lot of confusion around this issue, myself included. Other researchers had found that the project's first name was the Advanced Aerospace Weapons System Application Program (AAWSAP). So why did the NYT refer to it as AATIP?

Using information from my interviews with former AATIP chief Elizondo, and information found online in other interviews, I put together what I could on how AAWSAP became AATIP. I then interviewed Elizondo to fill in gaps and verify what I thought I knew was accurate and correct what I had wrong. I was then able to put together the information in this post that Elizondo has verified as correct.

Although others involved with these programs have commented on the names, Elizondo is the only one who was an administrator, and he is the highest authority I have interviewed on this topic.
