Black Money and Military UFOs - The Beginnings of Disclosure of the Secret Space Program - Links, Videos, and Commentary

When it comes to disclosures from the mainstream media, it may not seem as though there is much to get excited about. By this point, revelations of these types are considered old news to many of us who are paying close attention to the disclosure process. Though it may seem that these disclosures are catered only to those who ignored Roswell, the Arizona lights, and ignored virtually every other UFO encounter in U.S. and world history, these revelations represent the first of the continually-increasing boldness of the corporate media.

Ever since the famed and yet misnamed Battle of Los Angeles (which wasn't actually a battle), the American people have been fascinated with the subject of visitors from outer space. Representations of these encounters have been featured in popular entertainment in television, movies, and in the world of gaming. Though this entertainment tends to paint the image of ETs as largely dangerous and negative, these images have had a way of subtlety introducing humanity to the universe beyond Earth's surface. (And in fact, there are both positive and negative ETs in our universe, according to sources.) This subtle introduction, however, was not always necessary, and the reality of UFOs and ETs not always so unfamiliar to the population.

The concept of ETs is not at all new to the planet, according to ancient records and research. These records describe beings that were thought of as gods who came from the sky, possessed the ability of flight, walked the Earth alongside human beings, and had a significant impact on society and the world in general.

In modern times, the records of these beings has reportedly been hidden from the general population. At the same time, the benefit of the teachings and technology of these ancient visitors has been kept under lock and key, only to be used by a ruling elite who consider themselves superior to the rest of humanity, according to reports.

It is our current establishment that has ensured that the public was unfamiliar with the reality of UFOs and of ETs/EBEs up this point. So what we are seeing is a dishonest establishment that is gradually trying to clean up its own self-created mess; that being the secrecy and ignorance which would otherwise be of detriment to the evolving society (and the galaxy, for that matter).

Some experiencers and whistleblowers even report that these ET beings are still visiting the planet (and even live here in some cases), but that they have deliberately avoided directly appearing to large groups of people. This was said to be for the purpose of maintaining our human illusion of isolation in the universe. Until our society is psycho-emotionally ready to see these beings again, they may remain hidden, according to sources.

The interesting part about these reports, such as this one from the New York Times, is that the media clearly has no idea what they are doing when reporting these stories. From one report to another, it seems that media companies are thoroughly confused, unsure of the consequences of these reports, and beating around a proverbial bush about an issue of which many people within the truth community are extensively aware.

We have been listening to the real sources whom news reports would have been interviewing, had they been reporting these stories as they first broke. However, instead of reporting them, the corporate media has ignored the issue altogether, and has only focused on subjects that maintained the status quo.

Now this corporate media finds itself roughly three decades behind the rest of the UFO community, beginning to report on subjects as though there is no more information to report at this time. In this way, we in the truth community are getting a clear view of the undeniably fictitious nature of news media at the corporate level.

As each of these reports comes forward, we are realizing that most of the conspiracies which the corporate media has dismissed and ignored (aside from CIA the disinformation we've encountered) were real and true to life. This is profound and goes to show that one does not need expensive cameras, stage makeup, and a yearly salary to report reliable information. All we need is a little initiative and the courage to lead a story instead of following corporate profit and ratings.

WASHINGTON — In the $600 billion annual Defense Department budgets, the $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was almost impossible to find.

Which was how the Pentagon wanted it.

For years, the program investigated reports of unidentified flying objects, according to Defense Department officials, interviews with program participants and records obtained by The New York Times. It was run by a military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo, on the fifth floor of the Pentagon’s C Ring, deep within the building’s maze.

The Defense Department has never before acknowledged the existence of the program, which it says it shut down in 2012. But its backers say that, while the Pentagon ended funding for the effort at that time, the program remains in existence. For the past five years, they say, officials with the program have continued to investigate episodes brought to them by service members, while also carrying out their other Defense Department duties.

The shadowy program — parts of it remain classified — began in 2007, and initially it was largely funded at the request of Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who was the Senate majority leader at the time and who has long had an interest in space phenomena. Most of the money went to an aerospace research company run by a billionaire entrepreneur and longtime friend of Mr. Reid’s, Robert Bigelow, who is currently working with NASA to produce expandable craft for humans to use in space.

On CBS’s “60 Minutes” in May, Mr. Bigelow said he was “absolutely convinced” that aliens exist and that U.F.O.s have visited Earth.

Working with Mr. Bigelow’s Las Vegas-based company, the program produced documents that describe sightings of aircraft that seemed to move at very high velocities with no visible signs of propulsion, or that hovered with no apparent means of lift.

Officials with the program have also studied videos of encounters between unknown objects and American military aircraft — including one released in August of a whitish oval object, about the size of a commercial plane, chased by two Navy F/A-18F fighter jets from the aircraft carrier Nimitz off the coast of San Diego in 2004.

Mr. Reid, who retired from Congress this year, said he was proud of the program. “I’m not embarrassed or ashamed or sorry I got this thing going,” Mr. Reid said in a recent interview in Nevada. “I think it’s one of the good things I did in my congressional service. I’ve done something that no one has done before.”

Two other former senators and top members of a defense spending subcommittee — Ted Stevens, an Alaska Republican, and Daniel K. Inouye, a Hawaii Democrat — also supported the program. Mr. Stevens died in 2010, and Mr. Inouye in 2012.

While not addressing the merits of the program, Sara Seager, an astrophysicist at M.I.T., cautioned that not knowing the origin of an object does not mean that it is from another planet or galaxy. “When people claim to observe truly unusual phenomena, sometimes it’s worth investigating seriously,” she said. But, she added, “what people sometimes don’t get about science is that we often have phenomena that remain unexplained.”

James E. Oberg, a former NASA space shuttle engineer and the author of 10 books on spaceflight who often debunks U.F.O. sightings, was also doubtful. “There are plenty of prosaic events and human perceptual traits that can account for these stories,” Mr. Oberg said. “Lots of people are active in the air and don’t want others to know about it. They are happy to lurk unrecognized in the noise, or even to stir it up as camouflage.”

Still, Mr. Oberg said he welcomed research. “There could well be a pearl there,” he said.

In response to questions from The Times, Pentagon officials this month acknowledged the existence of the program, which began as part of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Officials insisted that the effort had ended after five years, in 2012.

“It was determined that there were other, higher priority issues that merited funding, and it was in the best interest of the DoD to make a change,” a Pentagon spokesman, Thomas Crosson, said in an email, referring to the Department of Defense.

But Mr. Elizondo said the only thing that had ended was the effort’s government funding, which dried up in 2012. From then on, Mr. Elizondo said in an interview, he worked with officials from the Navy and the C.I.A. He continued to work out of his Pentagon office until this past October, when he resigned to protest what he characterized as excessive secrecy and internal opposition.

“Why aren’t we spending more time and effort on this issue?” Mr. Elizondo wrote in a resignation letter to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

Mr. Elizondo said that the effort continued and that he had a successor, whom he declined to name.

U.F.O.s have been repeatedly investigated over the decades in the United States, including by the American military. In 1947, the Air Force began a series of studies that investigated more than 12,000 claimed U.F.O. sightings before it was officially ended in 1969. The project, which included a study code-named Project Blue Book, started in 1952, concluded that most sightings involved stars, clouds, conventional aircraft or spy planes, although 701 remained unexplained.

Robert C. Seamans Jr., the secretary of the Air Force at the time, said in a memorandum announcing the end of Project Blue Book that it “no longer can be justified either on the ground of national security or in the interest of science.”

Mr. Reid said his interest in U.F.O.s came from Mr. Bigelow. In 2007, Mr. Reid said in the interview, Mr. Bigelow told him that an official with the Defense Intelligence Agency had approached him wanting to visit Mr. Bigelow’s ranch in Utah, where he conducted research.

Mr. Reid said he met with agency officials shortly after his meeting with Mr. Bigelow and learned that they wanted to start a research program on U.F.O.s. Mr. Reid then summoned Mr. Stevens and Mr. Inouye to a secure room in the Capitol.

“I had talked to John Glenn a number of years before,” Mr. Reid said, referring to the astronaut and former senator from Ohio, who died in 2016. Mr. Glenn, Mr. Reid said, had told him he thought that the federal government should be looking seriously into U.F.O.s, and should be talking to military service members, particularly pilots, who had reported seeing aircraft they could not identify or explain.

The sightings were not often reported up the military’s chain of command, Mr. Reid said, because service members were afraid they would be laughed at or stigmatized.

The meeting with Mr. Stevens and Mr. Inouye, Mr. Reid said, “was one of the easiest meetings I ever had.”

He added, “Ted Stevens said, ‘I’ve been waiting to do this since I was in the Air Force.’” (The Alaska senator had been a pilot in the Army’s air force, flying transport missions over China during World War II.)

During the meeting, Mr. Reid said, Mr. Stevens recounted being tailed by a strange aircraft with no known origin, which he said had followed his plane for miles.

None of the three senators wanted a public debate on the Senate floor about the funding for the program, Mr. Reid said. “This was so-called black money,” he said. “Stevens knows about it, Inouye knows about it. But that was it, and that’s how we wanted it.” Mr. Reid was referring to the Pentagon budget for classified programs.

Robert Bigelow, a billionaire entrepreneur and longtime friend of Mr. Reid, received most of the money allocated for the Pentagon program.

Contracts obtained by The Times show a congressional appropriation of just under $22 million beginning in late 2008 through 2011. The money was used for management of the program, research and assessments of the threat posed by the objects.

The funding went to Mr. Bigelow’s company, Bigelow Aerospace, which hired subcontractors and solicited research for the program.

Under Mr. Bigelow’s direction, the company modified buildings in Las Vegas for the storage of metal alloys and other materials that Mr. Elizondo and program contractors said had been recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena. Researchers also studied people who said they had experienced physical effects from encounters with the objects and examined them for any physiological changes. In addition, researchers spoke to military service members who had reported sightings of strange aircraft.
