1Experts from NASA, MIT and the Library of Congress have recently testified in front of the United States Congress House Committee on Science, Space and Technology about the ‘high likelihood’ of life in our galaxy as well as neighboring ones.(1) The House Committee on Science, Space and Technology oversees the most prominent public science agencies, such as NASA, the National Weather Service and the National Science Foundation. According to the collective opinions of three of the country’s top space scientists, it may be microbiol, and it may also be intelligent extraterrestrial life. Whatever the case may be, it probably and most likely exists, according to these three participating experts:

  • Dr. Mary Voytex, a Senior Scientist for Astrobiology, Planetary Science  Division at NASA
  • Dr. Sara Seager, Professor of Physics and Planetary Science, MIT
  • Dr. Steven Dick, Baruch S. Blumberg Chair of Astrobiology, John W. Kluge Center, Library of Congress

When they were all asked by the committee if there is life out there, they all responded yes. Rep. Chris Stewart asked, “Let’s assume that we find life? What do we do then? How does that change things with us in the way that we view ourselves?” The discussion about intelligent extraterrestrial life continued even further, but the underlying conclusion of this hearing was the fact that extraterrestrial life definitely exists.

This isn’t the first time a congressional hearing has been arranged on this topic, in May of 2013 the Committee on Science, Space and Technology had a hearing on the recent discovery of three super-Earth sized planets by NASA’s Kepler space telescope.(2) Scientists today are estimating that the Milky Way Galaxy alone is host to 100 billion stars, and that our universe alone is thought to contain at least 100 billion galaxies.

The search for extraterrestrial life within the mainstream is definitely starting to gain attention. Bigelow Aerospace (BASS) Director of Operations, Mike Gold recently admitted that despite missing the hearing with regards to the three super Earth sized exoplanets, he knew they concluded that galaxies, and our galaxy are most probably “teeming with life, and that,this is what science is telling us.” When asked about UFOs, he said that, that was a separate division of BASS and he couldn’t comment on it.

Within the past year alone, we’ve had these two hearings take place. Another significant event that also generated a lot of mainstream media buzz was the congressional type citizens hearing on UFO disclosure. Several former congress people participated, alongside several researchers, politicians and military personnel that testified to the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial life as well as Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs).

2013 was a pretty big year for questions regarding life on other planets. Although many are open to the idea about intelligent life on other planets, many are still unaware of the fact that the amount of evidence that’s available to the public which indicates we are not alone is incredible and vast. On the other hand, the amount of evidence that indicates there is no proof for this claim is very little.

I find it ironic how our mainstream world still participates in the search for extraterrestrial life when we’ve already found it, or they’ve already found us.

I’ve used this video in a lot of my articles, it’s just such a powerful statement and fits in with the article.

Apart from insiders and high ranking military and political personnel like Paul Hellyer, Canada’s former Minister of National Defense, O’Leary could be referring to many things. He could be referring to the documents released by dozens of governments worldwide that admit to having programs to study the UFO phenomenon, that they are tracked on radar, and seen by military pilots. He could be referring to his own personnel experience. One thing is for certain, the evidence out there is unbelievable, and it points in the direction of ‘yes, we are not alone.’

Arguments against the existence of known intelligent extraterrestrial life and UFOs have vanished, the only one that seems to remain is the lack of empirical data, the lack of personal experience. As far as research and documentation go, there is plenty of it.

Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance – Albert Einstein

The hearing ended with a discussion of how the UN already has protocols set in place if extraterrestrial intelligence is found, and to not keep secrets. It ended with the pondering of how that would be interesting, if some people knew and some people didn’t. (1)

The hearing also coincides with Obama’s recent appointment of Jon Podesta.(3) His newest adviser, who was quoted saying this:

I’m skeptical about many things, including the notion that government always knows best, and that the people can’t be trusted with the truth. The time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue. Presenting the facts, the book includes statements from only the most credible sources — those in a position to know — about a fascinating phenomenon, the nature of which is yet to be determined.

It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. The American people — and people around the world — want to know, and they can handle the truth.

The US recently released its highly anticipated Pentagon UAP report, but it wasn’t much more than a 9 page rundown of what has been known for decades. Regardless, for many, what was promising was that the UFO subject was being taken seriously again – and perhaps many more scientists might get involved.

For decades many have been warning about leaving UFO disclosure in the hands of a government that likes to use crisis’ or current events to expand its defense budgets. Further, why would we suddenly expect a government, who has been lying about this subject for 70 years, to suddenly come forth with the truth? What would inspire them to suddenly change their mind?

Perhaps it’s because the search for ET is an idea who’s time has truly come. We’ve reporting on this for over 13 years, and are mongst a community of researchers who have been encouraging humanity to look at the evidence for more than 70 years. It feels like an idea that human collective consciousness is more than ready to explore.

The impact the ET question has on our individual and collective worldview has the power to truly change the way we view ourselves and the meaning of life here on earth. Think of the implications answers to this question could have on how we set up and run our society as well. Technology, culture, collaboration etc – I spoke about this more in great detail in my extended interview for Greer’s. prior film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind here.

Now, a new documentary from Dr. Steven Greer, directed by my good friend Michael Mazzola, seeks to explore what the films calls “the current government and media disinformation campaign promoting 3 big lies:”

1. We do not know what these UAPs/ UFOs are. WE DO.
2. Humans cannot make craft that can maneuver like UFOs. WE CAN and WE DO.
3. The UFOs are a threat. THEY ARE NOT.

Bold statements. Watch the film below and see what resonates most with you.

Pentagon UFO Report: Explanations Fall Into One of Five Categories. Aliens Not Ruled Out

So is it aliens? The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is here, and the executive summary alone gives insight into the nature of this report from US Intelligence Communities.

The limited amount of high-quality reporting on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP. The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) considered a range of information on UAP described in U.S. military and IC (Intelligence Community) reporting, but because the reporting lacked sufficient specificity, ultimately recognized that a unique, tailored reporting process was required to provide sufficient data for analysis of UAP events.

Essentially, the report aims to acknowledge 16 years of this phenomenon, while leaving out the 70 years it has been studying this phenomenon.

Still, as per the report, the U.S. government can’t explain 143 of the 144 cases of unidentified flying objects reported by their own military planes.

It acknowledges that “a handful of UAP appear to demonstrate advanced technology.”

In 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics. Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernible means of propulsion. In a small number of cases, military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.

The UAPTF holds a small amount of data that appear to show UAP demonstrating acceleration or a degree of signature management. Additional rigorous analysis are necessary by multiple teams or groups of technical experts to determine the nature and validity of these data. We are conducting further analysis to determine if breakthrough technologies were demonstrated.

It goes on to drop the last 16 years of measuring this phenomenon into 5 key categories, non of which mention non human intelligent life, but that is technically a bin for it.

The five categories are,

Airborne Clutter: These objects include birds, balloons, recreational unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or airborne debris like plastic bags that muddle a scene and affect an operator’s ability to identify true targets, such as enemy aircraft. Natural

Atmospheric Phenomena: Natural atmospheric phenomena includes ice crystals, moisture, and thermal fluctuations that may register on some infrared and radar systems.

USG or Industry Developmental Programs: Some UAP observations could be attributable to developments and classified programs by U.S. entities. We were unable to confirm, however, that these systems accounted for any of the UAP reports we collected.

Foreign Adversary Systems: Some UAP may be technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity. UNCLASSIFIED 6 UNCLASSIFIED

Other: Although most of the UAP described in our dataset probably remain unidentified due to limited data or challenges to collection processing or analysis, we may require additional scientific knowledge to successfully collect on, analyze and characterize some of them. We would group such objects in this category pending scientific advances that allowed us to better understand them. The UAPTF intends to focus additional analysis on the small number of cases where a UAP appeared to display unusual flight characteristics or signature management.

The report does state, rather predictably, that some observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis.

As expected, they are claiming that “UAP clearly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security.” What’s odd about this statement is that this phenomenon has been known about for 70 years, yet not a single aviation incident has occurred that anyone knows of, so why are they a threat to flight all of a sudden?

Further, one could expect “a threat to nation security” would be mentioned  for two reasons: on a political level this means more attention will be paid to the issue, and there has long been political leverage gained from presenting certain global events as a threat to ‘get other things done.’

In this case, the report makes mention of foreign adversary threats should these incidences fall under that category, claiming these could be breakthrough or disruptive technology.

The report contends that further scientific analysis and more focused measurement apparatus would be required to answer some of the unanswered questions surrounding ‘the few’ instances where UAP performed ‘impossible’ maneuvers.

There is likely a classified version of this report that would be in much greater detail. The question is why after 70 years is the public still in the dark?

Perhaps the takeaway here is that although this is essentially a repeat of Project Blue Book of the 50s and 60s, we are now in a time where it’s being talked about again. Further, we are in an age where information spreads a lot faster and a lot further then back then. Perhaps that will be the kicker this time around.

We’ll have more detailed coverage throughout the day and into tomorrow.

The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is set to be released from the U.S. Intelligence Community. Some of those waiting expect a moment of acknowledgment, but perhaps nothing all that new, while others are hoping for a much deeper admission of non-human intelligent life. Time will tell.

In the wake, Senator Marco Rubio has issued the following statement:

Rubio Statement on UAP Report

Miami, FL — Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Vice Chairman Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement on the unclassified report on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) issued by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

“For years, the men and women we trust to defend our country reported encounters with unidentified aircraft that had superior capabilities, and for years their concerns were often ignored and ridiculed,” Rubio said. “This report is an important first step in cataloging these incidents, but it is just a first step. The Defense Department and Intelligence Community have a lot of work to do before we can actually understand whether these aerial threats present a serious national security concern.”

In 2020, Rubio, as Acting Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, included report language in the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 directing ODNI to submit a report to congressional intelligence and armed services committees on unidentified aerial phenomena.

We’ll have full coverage of the what’s in the report later today, if the report is released, and of course in the coming days as it will inevitably require much analysis and discussion. Sign up to our email list and follow us on Twitter for more to come.
