Satellites are searching for alien life on distant planets, but a scientist's strange encounter suggests we may want to look deeper into our world.

Bob McGwire, a professor at Virginia Tech and with the Institute for Defense Analyses, was carrying out classified work on the USS Hampton submarine when he heard the sound of 'something whizzing by.'

The onboard sonar determined the unidentified submerged object (USO) was traveling through the water faster than the speed of sound, he has claimed.

Such speeds underwater should have crushed the submarine, according to McGwire, but he said it was as if they were standing still.

McGwire said he urged the naval team to report the encounter, but they determined it would hinder the mission.

'When I left there with the knowledge in my head, not having been told to be quiet, not having been told it was classified... It is mine to tell whoever I want. They blew it,' McGwire said, noting he would not discuss the classified work done on the sub.

The strange incident happened in the late 1990s, but McGwire recently came forward with the story on the YouTube channel UAP Society, where he wanted to 'blow the whole thing wide open.'

'Deeply disturbing stuff' - Can the truth ever be told?

dimension ufo
A disclosure by media commentator Tucker Carlson, bearing no relation to partisan politics, was lost in news of war in the Middle East, the danger to shipping, and earth changes. Appearing on the December 12, 2023 edition of the Redacted news program on You Tube, Carlson astonished many by stating that there were aspects of the UFO phenomenon that were troubling due to their dark nature. "There is a spiritual factor I can't fully understand," he said, going on to say that these aspects were sufficiently disquieting as to make the subject one to be avoided. "Deeply disturbing stuff."

One would hope that this forbidden knowledge would be tantamount to a battleship salvo fired at the extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH) and its obsession with marrying the phenomenon to alleged technological civilizations across the galactic gulfs. Astronomical surveys have thus far come across five thousand planets without finding signs of life, much less a star-spanning culture. Or, as other modern thinkers have suggested, a single civilization emerges at a time, only to flicker and die before being replaced by another, and a future space bound humanity may someday find their ruins.

In his 1975 opus The Mothman Prophecies, the late John A. Keel wisely observed that the ancients had found a solution to the enigma. "Three thousand years ago," he wrote, "a small group of brilliant men investigated and solved the mystery of unidentified flying objects. Since then, a great many others have approached the same mystery from different perspectives and solved it over and over again."

Michael Ian Black: UFO whistleblower David Grusch is my hero of 2023

There's at least a small chance that David Grusch will end up being one of the most consequential figures in history. On June 5, the former intelligence officer was the subject of an extraordinary article in The Debrief entitled, "Intelligence Officials Say U.S. Has Retrieved Craft of Non-Human Origin." At once, the 36-year-old retired Air Force officer went from combat veteran to whistleblower, making the incredible claim that the United States government, and/or its military subcontractors, has in its possession multiple partial or intact "alien" craft.

Further, he claimed, the U.S. began collecting these craft in the 1940s and has been studying them ever since — while denying their existence to the public.

Grusch also provided to Congress "hours of recorded classified information transcribed into hundreds of pages which included specific data about the materials recovery program." The following month, he went further, testifying under oath to Congress about the so-called "craft retrieval program."

Grusch is not the first person to make such claims over the years, but he is among the most credible. A decorated Air Force veteran, Grusch has the résumé of both a boy genius and a Boy Scout. Overnight, a man almost nobody had ever heard of became the perfect poster child for the growing disclosure movement, which seeks the truth about what the government knows regarding UFOs or UAPs.

'Demonic forces' stopped official investigations into UFOs in the UK

The government failed to properly investigate unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP) in the Nineties over fears they were caused by 'demonic forces', the UK's leading expert has claimed.

Nick Pope, who led the Ministry of Defence's UFO desk between 1991 and 1994, has said the then chief of defence staff Lord Hill-Norton stopped investigating sightings after being influenced by a controversial priest.

There are also similar beliefs in the US government, he added, with politicians and officials frequently deferring to the Bible when the issue of UFOs, now officially known as UAP, arises.

'It's counter-intuitive that some official resistance to taking UAP seriously comes not from hard-nosed science-minded sceptics who think studying the subject is a waste of government time and money, but from a faction that believes UAP are real - but demonic,' said Mr Pope, speaking to Metro.co.uk.

'This stems in part from a biblical description of Satan as being "the prince of the power of the air" - a quotation from the book of Ephesians.'

Some UFO records must be released, US Congress says

The United States Congress just passed legislation that directs the U.S. government to release records related to UFOs.

Some UFO records, anyway. According to new provisions in the Fiscal Year 2024 National Defense Authorization Act, the law that funds the U.S. military and related activities, the U.S. National Archives must collect for release all documents that "pertain to unidentified anomalous phenomena, technologies of unknown origin, and non-human intelligence."

None of those terms is defined in the bill, however. "Unidentified anomalous phenomena," or UAP, is a relatively a newly adopted and broadly defined term that encompasses UFOs in the sky in addition to unidentified objects underwater, in space or that appear to travel between these domains.

The records are to be released once 25 years has passed since their creation, unless the president directs them to remain classified, and newer records can be released sooner if the agency that created them allows it.

David Grusch: Congress' pared-down UAP measure a 'total failure'

Whistleblower David Grusch is admonishing Congress for what he says is a "total failure" to get more public transparency about what the government knows about unidentified aerial phenomena.

Grusch, a former Air Force intelligence officer, made headlines when he said the U.S. government is covering up a UFO, or unidentified flying object, retrieval program. The United States, Grusch said months ago, is in possession of "quite a number" of "nonhuman exotic origin vehicles that have either landed or crashed."

Some lawmakers now are pushing for more transparency around UFOs, also known as unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs). They took a step toward that goal by including in the annual defense funding bill a provision requiring disclosure of classified records relating to UAPs but not before stripping out key portions of the measure.

"What we're witnessing right now is, quite frankly, the greatest legislative failure in American history," Grusch said Monday on "Elizabeth Vargas Reports." "Whether you believe my allegations or not, this is a government transparency issue at large."

Grusch first went public with his allegations in an exclusive NewsNation interview with investigative journalist Ross Coulthart earlier this year. Grusch claimed to know of the crash retrieval program based on information he was told from other intelligence sources with knowledge of the program.

Comment: Here's the segment with Grusch:

Ross Coulthart also appeared:
Coulthart said he has a "pretty good idea" what information Grusch may release in the coming weeks.

"I'm actually very excited that you've managed to pull that out of him," Coulthart told Vargas. "Because I've been waiting for a while for him to provide a rejoinder to the critics who have constantly asserted there is no firsthand evidence."

While Coulthart said he can't speak with any specificity on the contents of Grusch's possible op-ed, he thinks he may have an idea of what it could feature.

"I suspect it's something to do with either photographic or video material that he may have seen, but I'm only speculating," Coulthart said.

Coulthart maintains more people will likely come forward with their own UFO claims after Grusch presented his information.

Secrets of Area 51: Metallic egg-shaped UFO the size of an SUV was kept at the highly-classified Air Force base in the 1980s, whistleblower claims

An egg-shaped metallic UFO was kept at Area 51 in the 1980s, a whistleblower claims in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com.

Engineers at the Nevada airbase claimed the CIA found the strange craft in the desert and brought it to them for investigation - but later shipped it to another base after they were unable to get inside the object.

Eric Taber has been a defense aerospace contractor for 13 years and has held a security clearance to work on military aircraft.

In an interview with DailyMail.com, he revealed the story his late great uncle Sam Urquhart, an Area 51 contractor, told him about a UFO at the mysterious desert base.

Taber testified in May to the Pentagon's UFO investigation unit, the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), who are collecting accounts of alleged government possession of non-human craft.

Congress is taking a huge step toward UFO transparency—and lawmakers pushing for the truth aren't happy

© Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast
Congress is about to take perhaps its biggest step toward transparency surrounding UFOs, but the lawmakers pushing for change say the disclosure policy doesn't go far enough.

UFOs — or UAPs, standing for "Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena" in government-speak — have been a hot topic on Capitol Hill for years, given a number of high-profile disclosures. But a hearing over the summer with former intelligence officer and whistleblower David Grusch, where he claimed the government was concealing information like evidence of "non-human biologics" recovered from UFOs, took the frenzy to a new level.

That hearing put UFO policies front and center in the annual defense bill, which had already been written in both chambers before the hearing. But lawmakers from both parties — including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) — pushed negotiators working out the differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill to add new UFO disclosure laws to the legislation.

Schumer and a number of other senators wanted to create a "UAP Records Review Board" — modeled after how the government handled records associated with President John F. Kennedy's assassination — where UFO documents would carry "the presumption of immediate disclosure." (That didn't make it in the final bill.)

Comment: As Christopher Sharp at the Liberation Times put it:
The Controlled Disclosure Campaign - killed.

The Independent Review Board dedicated to the disclosure of UAP information and materials - killed.

The authority of eminent domain wielded by the U.S. Federal Government over any materials or biological evidence of unknown or non-human origin - killed.

New whistleblower and witness protections - killed.

Enforcement of subpoena - killed.

Amnesty provision for defense contractors and other entities in possession of UAP-related material and involved in illegalities - killed.
As a positive, tracking those who put up the roadblocks is in itself revealing. It seems one purpose of this legislation may have been for just that reason: to ferret out where the pushback is coming from. Those sources include:
  • Lockheed Martin
  • Representative Mike Turner - Chair of the House Intelligence Committee
  • Representative Mike Rogers - Chair of the House Armed Services Committee
  • Representative Mike Johnson - Speaker of the House
  • Senator Mitch McConnell - Minority Senate Leader
  • Senator Roger Wicker - Ranking Member of the Senate's Armed Services Committee.
Sources indicate that the CIA and defense contractors pinpointed the key politicians named above, who were able to thwart other members of Congress, including Senators Schumer and Mike Rounds, who are understood to have fought hard to pass the language intact.

There is some slight positive news - Section 1687, referring to the Limitation On Use Of Funds For Certain Unreported Programs.

The language restricts the use of funds authorized for any activities related to UAP unless the Secretary of Defense provides details of such activities to specific congressional committees and leadership. Additionally, it imposes limitations on independent research and development funding for UAP unless information is made available to the same congressional entities.

However, that language no longer includes the level of detail contained within the initial language, including references to recovery and reverse engineering of UAP craft linked to the limitations of such funds.


If there's truly nothing to hide, why are influential members of Congress, allegedly aided by the CIA and defense contractors, working so hard to conceal something that supposedly doesn't even exist? This raises serious questions and strongly hints at a substantial cover-up.


Best of the Web: Irish scientist with top secret US Government clearance: 'The UFO phenomenon can manipulate human perception, invade people's lives, and is very deceptive'

George Knapp and Dr Colm Kelleher
George Knapp and Dr Colm Kelleher
In 2017, The New York Times published a series of articles exposing a hidden Pentagon programme that investigated unidentified aerial phenomenon (UAP). An Irish man, Dr Colm Kelleher (67), ran that secret operation.

Over a Microsoft Teams chat from the Nevada desert, the AAWSAP (Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications Program) manager for the Defence Intelligence Agency, Dublin born scientist Dr Kelleher, described, what he believes, are the profound nature of his work.

"The idea that humans are the only life form in the universe is no longer true, that there is another intelligence very close to planet earth, is a shattering experience to internalise," he said.

"This was not taught in Templeogue College. Suddenly you are faced with a reality that should not exist. There's that phrase, 'ontological shock.' You make a shift psychologically and you never go back.

"For people who have experienced this, something changes and it becomes extremely important. People who have come face to face with this are very engaged. People who haven't are on the side lines.

"In general, there is a psychological form of denial because if you admit this into your reality, there is a whole slew of things that are not true.

"That is why society is kind of split, as some people have been awakened to something that should not exist."
