U.S. government is “ignoring UFO sightings” because “nobody wants to be the alien guy,” former Pentagon official said

U.S. Pentagon UFO alien life ufos Aliens The government is “ignoring UFO sightings” because “nobody wants to be ‘the alien guy’ in the national security bureaucracy,” a former Pentagon official said. Christopher Mellon, a former deputy assistant security of defense for the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations, claims that the government needs to thoroughly investigate nationwide reports of flying unidentified objects, given the sheer quantity in recent years. In a Washington Post op-ed, Mellon, who now works at The Stars Academy of Arts and Science (TTSA), says some U.S. pilots have encountered a UFO and several have even caught footage of the occurrence, but not enough has been done about it. "We have no idea what’s behind these weird incidents because we’re not investigating," he wrote. Keep up with this story and more by subscribing now On Friday, the Stars Academy of Arts and Science released footage of a UFO spotted by the U.S. Navy off the East Coast in 2015. Youtube Mellon believes that although they may not necessarily indicate alien life, the UFOs could be advanced Chinese or Russian technology, which would still warrant an investigation. However, he claims that people in the Pentagon turn their backs on bizarre videos and treat them as isolated incidents, rather than connected events. "If these craft mean that Russia, China or some other nation is concealing an astonishing technological breakthrough to quietly extend its lead, surely we should respond as we did then," Mellon wrote. He added: "Or, if these craft really aren’t from Earth, then the need to figure out what they are is even more urgent." Mellon then states that “nobody wants to be ‘the alien guy’ in the national security bureaucracy” because those types of people are often “ridiculed or side-lined for drawing attention to the issue.” On Friday, new UFO footage was released by TTSA, a Continue Reading

Footage claims to show pilots’ encounter with UFO

Footage claims to show an encounter between US fighter jet pilots and an unidentified aircraft. It was released by To The Stars Academy of Art and Science, a research organisation founded in October 2017 by Luis Elizondo to conduct research into “exotic science and technologies.” The recording, from 2015, was made aboard a Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet which was flying over the US east coast. In the clip, two pilots are heard shouting in disbelief after capturing the object on their ATFLIR Pod. According to To The Stars Academy of Art and Science, it "contains the most advanced sensors and powerful tracking systems on the market".  Christopher Mellon, an adviser to the organisation, wrote in the Washington Post that the US needs to put more effort into researching these sightings.   He questions whether the clip could be "evidence of some alien civilisation" or proof that the US was "technologically leap-frogged by Russia or China". GO FAST is the latest in a series of declassified videos released by To The Stars Academy showing possible UFO sightings - the first being FL1R1, followed by GIMBAL. Like the others, this footage comes with crucial chain-of-custody (CoC) documentation because it is a product of US military sensors, which confirms it is original, unaltered, and not computer generated or artificially fabricated. While there have been leaked versions on the internet, the CoC establishes the authenticity and credibility that this version is the original footage taken from one of the most advanced sensor tracking devices in use. Following the release of FL1R1 and GIMBAL, the US Department of Defense admitted to running a secretive five-year programme investigating UFO sightings.  The programme cost $22 million before it was shut down in 2012.  It was the first time the Department of Defense had acknowledged the existence of the Continue Reading

Hear American Airlines Pilot Discuss UFO Sighting Over Arizona in FAA Tape

Pilots over southern Arizona last month reported a mystery object flying above their aircraft in a flight-control recording released by the Federal Aviation Administration."Was anybody above us that passed us like 30 seconds ago?" a Phoenix Air Group pilot flying a Learjet at 37,000 feet asked an air traffic controller at about 3:30 p.m. on February 24."Negative," said an official with the Federal Aviation Administration's Albuquerque Center."OK," the pilot responded a few seconds later. "Somethin' did."A few minutes later, an American Airlines Airbus pilot reported seeing the same thing at roughly 40,000 feet over the Sonoran Desert between Picacho and Mammoth.No one knew what it was.Now, nobody's saying this is evidence of little green men, but the tape makes for a fun UFO story, clearly. And there's a possible serious side. Even in the likely event that the object has a mundane source, the incident may reveal a potential safety hazard because of its unexpected appearance in the sky.TheDrive.Com's War Zone page was apparently the first to publish the recording today. The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed the authenticity of the digital file on Friday and emailed a copy to Phoenix New Times.The FAA seemed to suggest that yes, this was sort of weird."Other than the brief conversation between two aircraft, the controller was unable to verify that any other aircraft was in the area," Lynn Lunsford, FAA mid-states public affairs manager, told New Times. "We have a close working relationship with a number of other agencies and safely handle military aircraft and civilian aircraft of all types in that area every day, including high-altitude weather balloons."In other words, the FAA should have heard about a weather balloon or military flight, but didn't.American Airlines didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.In the recording, after the Learjet pilot's report, another voice from the sky piped up, "UFO!"A man laughed. "Yeah."About three minutes later, Continue Reading

The sadistic Golden State Killer terrorized California 40 years ago. Is he still out there?

By Katie Dowd, SFGATE Updated 10:25 pm, Sunday, March 4, 2018 Now Playing: An FBI video soliciting help from the public in finding the Golden State Killer, a rapist and murderer who targeted the Sacramento area, Bay Area and further south from 1976-86. Media: San Francisco Chronicle When he broke into the Goleta condo of Robert Offerman and his girlfriend Debra Alexandria Manning on Dec. 30, 1979, he’d already committed dozens of rapes in Northern California. He was pathologically meticulous. Law enforcement knew he stalked his victims, usually choosing single women who lived in one-story homes. In previous cases, he’d broken into the home when it was unoccupied to prep the scene, removing bullets from guns, disabling lights and learning the layout of the house. But something went wrong that night. Offerman, whose hands were bound, managed to break free. Police think he attacked the intruder. He shot both Offerman and Manning dead. When police searched the house the next morning, one detail stuck out to them: The couple’s Christmas turkey leftovers had been taken from the refrigerator and eaten. The killer stayed for a snack. --- The man who killed Offerman and Manning remains one of the state — and the nation’s — most frightening unidentified serial killers. Known alternately as the East Area Rapist, Golden State Killer and Original Night Stalker, his statistics are hard to fathom: at least 12 murders and 45 rapes spanning from 1976-86. There were victims in Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Sacramento, Yolo, Stanislaus and San Joaquin counties. window._taboola = window._taboola || []; _taboola.push({ mode: 'thumbnails-c', container: 'taboola-interstitial-gallery-thumbnails-5', placement: 'Interstitial Gallery Thumbnails 5', target_type: 'mix' }); _taboola.push({flush: true}); window._taboola = window._taboola || []; _taboola.push({ mode: 'thumbnails-c', container: Continue Reading

SEE IT: Online video claims UFO attacked Taliban camp in Afghanistan

An online video claims the U.S. has a new ally in its fight against terrorism - one from another planet. The video from the group Section 51 - titled "UFO ATTACKS TALIBAN CAMP!!! March 2014" - allegedly shows a UFO firing multiple times at a compound that then goes up in smoke. The organization, which seeks to show the reality of UFOs, claims the footage was shot by the U.S. Marines. The location is then filled with a large pile of smoke, and the film cuts to a triangle-shaped object flying in the sky. The authenticity of the video cannot be confirmed. The U.S. military has not announced any UFO sightings in Afghanistan. The website Pixable shows the supposed UFO video is incredibly similar to a 2009 military video shot in Iraq. @joelzlandau USING A MOBILE DEVICE? CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO.

Whether it’s CIA, Mafia, LBJ or even aliens, JFK assassination conspiracy theories never die

It's one of the enduring mysteries to come out of the latter half of the 20th Century: who shot JFK, and why? Fifty years after his death, a scant 25% of Americans believe the official version of John F. Kennedy’s death, according to a recent poll. The government’s story, promulgated by the Warren Commission — an investigatory body created a week after the assassination — said that a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, fired three shots, two of which fatally struck Kennedy. Oswald acted alone, the Warren Commission said, and so did Jack Ruby, the man who shot and killed Oswald two days later. RELATED: CRONKITE LOOKS BACK ON ASSASSINATION IN PBS SPECIAL In the decades since, advances in criminal forensics and technology have upheld some of the Warren Commission’s findings and cast doubt on others. In 1976, the U.S. Congress authorized another investigation into Kennedy’s death. This one, done by the House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations, took three years and was largely done in secret. It concluded that Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy — but it eliminated as suspects many of the groups most Americans felt were likely culprits. What is known is that the 35th U.S. president was fatally shot at 12:30 p.m. central time on Nov. 22, 1963. Kennedy, about to launch a re-election bid, was traveling in his motorcade through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas, Texas. Two bullets struck the charismatic 46-year-old. One entered his back and exited from his throat. RELATED: NURSE CLAIMS JFK HAD ANOTHER BULLET LODGED IN BODY The other hit Kennedy on the left side of his head and exited out the right side. It sprayed blood and gray matter across the pink suit of his vivacious wife, Jackie Kennedy, and through the interior of the car. Those shots were fired from the sixth floor window of the southeast corner of the Texas School Book Depository building. Continue Reading

Arizona’s whirlwind of activities

With its radiant red rocks and energy vortexes, Sedona, Ariz., is a mecca for nature enthusiasts and those looking to relax. It's where hippies and yoga buffs feel just as welcome as hikers and mountain bikers. And the perfect season to visit is nearly here. September and October not only bring major music, art and food festivals, but it's when torrid temperatures in the desert city begin to drop. Sedona is a two-hour drive from Scottsdale - a Western town that lassos tourists in with its posh spas and golf courses. And the recently revamped downtown scene gives good reason to couple Scottsdale with a Sedona getaway. Both cities are spa-speckled, but Sedona thrives on its spiritual element. For a chance to learn all about the area's energy, view the scenery and get in some exercise at the same time, try one of the Sedona Spirit Vortex Hikes (888-282-9901; yogalife.net ). Led by Bronx-born Johanna Mosca, or one of her guides, the tours set out around massive sandstone formations - some of which are vortexes, or centers of spiraling energy. It's believed the spots are ideal for meditation, healing and prayer. There are four major vortexes in Sedona, Mosca explains at the start of one recent three-hour yoga hike. Some have masculine energy, known as electric. "They arouse you, stir you up and motivate you," she says. Others have feminine, or magnetic energy. "It's energy that draws you inward, quiets you," explains Mosca. "It has you recall a past life, and makes you feel a deeper calm and peace." The vortexes of Airport Mesa and Bell Rock have masculine energy. Cathedral, named for its spires, is feminine. Boynton Canyon is said to be electromagnetic, a perfect balance between the male and female energies. "Locals say they need to get out of Sedona every once in a while because it's too powerful," Mosca says. "There's a lot of Native American energy here. They came here for pilgrimages, but they thought it was too sacred to live long-term." Continue Reading
