From Politico: Congressman Demands Answers on UFOs

Post by ProfessorX »

This is not from the Onion, National Enquirer, or Alex Jones. It's from Politico. But it's definitely, I guess ... "off the beaten path".

Navy withholding data on UFO sightings, congressman says
https://www.politico.com/story/2019/09/ ... gs-1698396" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

A top Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee is accusing the Navy of withholding information about reports of unidentified aircraft after officially requesting more data on the mysterious encounters.

Rep. Mark Walker of North Carolina, the ranking member of the Intelligence and Counterrorism subcommittee, asked Secretary Richard V. Spencer in July to outline what resources the Navy is dedicating to investigating the sightings. He also asked if officials have found "physical evidence" to substantiate the claims, and whether they are aware of any foreign nations or private companies that have introduced breakthrough technologies that could explain them.

Navy Undersecretary Thomas Modly responded in a brief letter on July 31 that "the Department of the Navy takes these reports very seriously and continues to log sightings and fully investigate the accounts," according to a copy provided to POLITICO.

But Walker said he is discouraged by the Navy's seeming unwillingness to provide his committee with more data about the so-called unidentified aerial phenomena — the term the Pentagon prefers over the more traditional "unidentified flying objects," or UFOs. He has expressed concern publicly that the craft could pose a threat to U.S. forces or territory.

[snip]

Congressional interest in the unidentified aircraft reports has grown since revelations by POLITICO and other news outlets in late 2017 that the Pentagon had investigated the sightings through a program established a decade earlier by former Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada.

Among the revelations were sightings reported by pilots and other personnel assigned to the USS Nimitz and the USS Theodore Roosevelt battlegroups in 2004, 2015 and 2016, including footage of unknown aircraft exhibiting characteristics that appear to defy known aerodynamic properties. The Pentagon also financed a series of theoretical studies to try to explain how the aircraft might operate — ranging from "Detection and High Resolution Tracking of Vehicles at Hypersonic Velocities" to "Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions." (*)

In the recent interview, Walker, a former pastor, also acknowledged that he is open to the possibility that there are no easy explanations — or the answers could change how humanity perceives the known universe.

"The way I look at this: What if [U.S. government agencies] already do know about it but the rest of us don’t?" he added. "I certainly have an open mind to see where this leads us. We are going to stay on the issue and follow through like we said we wanted to do."

[snip][end]

(*) Yeah, that is some creepy deepy shit that comes up on the PDF if you click that link. Check the "studies" the DIA/AATP was funding.

8. Traversable Wormholes, Stargates, and Negative Energy, Dr. Eric Davis, EarthTech International (Product is classified UNCLASSIFIED//FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY)
really? The government is studying ... stargates?

19. Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions, Dr. R. Obousy, Obousy Consultants (Product is classified UNCLASSIFIED//FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY)
Ummmm. Hmmmkay. (**)

But this one got my spider sense really atingle.

15. An Introduction to the Statistical Drake Equation, Dr. Claudio Maccone, Intemational Academy of Astronautics (Product is classified UNCLASSIFIED//FOR OFFICIAL USE ONL Y)
As I've said, the Drake equation was astronomer Frank Drake's "back of the envelope" calculation he made back in the 60s for how many planets with intelligent alien civilizations might be out there in the universe.

Dr. Richard K. Obousy (Ph.D (Physics) Baylor University 2008), is a past President of Icarus Interstellar and a current director. In addition, he is a Primary Propulsion Senior Scientist for Icarus Interstellar, a non-profit research foundation dedicated to researching technologies that will enable breakthroughs in interstellar travel. He is also Subject Editor and a Member of the Advisory Board for the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society and a regular guest contributor for Discovery Space News. Dr. Obousy completed his Ph.D in theoretical physics in 2008, with a dissertation titled “Investigation into Compactified Dimensions: Casimir Energies and Phenomenological Aspects“, which was largely focused on understanding the nature of the vacuum of quantum field theory. Prior to studying for his Ph.D, Dr. Obousy worked for the UK Defense Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA) as a radar physicist. He successfully organized an award-winning polarimetric radar experiment in Hawaii in 2001. He was recently a chapter contributor for the book “Going Interstellar”, edited by Jack McDevitt and Les Johnson (Deputy Manager for the Advanced Concepts Office at NASA George C. Marshall Space Flight Center).

Alright people. Rod Serling will step out from behind the curtain any minute now ... right?

If the government was working on interstellar technology ... they'd tell us. Right? :D

BTW, tis true, Barry Goldwater was one of the first people who promised to reveal everything the government knew about UFOs if he got elected POTUS.

... he lost, of course. :D

Should we note that recent sightings of UFOs have increased since Trump got elected? Perhaps the entire universe is worried? :rw)

Don't know his motives. Do know he said the aliens use Element 115 to power their space ships, which is only found on their planet.

Uhhh whoops. That was until none other than the Russians made it here on our planet - Moscovium - P.S. it doesn't do what Bob says it does. :D

Here's what I figure they'd say. "Really? Is this the best your species can do?" :rw)

Goldwater also asked the CIA to find Noah's Ark. Some whacko had written that satellite pictures had found evidence of a shipwreck on Mt. Ararat, so Barry said how about you guys check this out? They did.

All on the Internet somewhere.

You might want to check out Joe Rogan just interviewed DAN AKROYD, who has never met an alien or UFO story he doesnt believe.

I really enjoyed Joe constantly pushing back at Dan and Dan took it in good humor.

He was there to sell

Which evidently is amazing, I cant try it because I am allergic. As you already know every time I drink I break out in handcuffs.

Drinker? I am curious, buy this and tell me what you think, you may have to get a 2nd mortgage first.

Yeah, I still drink, although vodka is something I tend to avoid. Doesn't agree with me well. But ... in the name of science ... where's the OJ? :D

Anyway, I know this about Akroyd. He's often been on Coast to Coast. What? There have been nights where I'm driving somewhere, it's midnight, what the hell ELSE is on the radio? At least back in the Art Bell days, unlike Noory, he didn't usually put militia RWNJs on the air. I really like when he has on Michiu Kaku the physicist.

So, one of the reasons he appeared in Ghostbusters is the actor in real life is really interested in the paranormal ... ghosts and UFOs among other things. So needless to say, yeah, I'd expect him at "Alienstock".

Anyway, I think you know my take. They may have been doing cutting-edge "skunkworks" stuff at Area 51, but none of it was based on alien tech. I personally think we don't have any. Or NASA is just pretending and acting like we don't, but that would be silly. Most of that stuff has probably been moved to Utah or other facilities. These folks may have an awesome party, but they will get arrested if they trespass the base perimeter. Bad news: there just isn't that much to see there, anymore, alas.
