It's been one heck of a year, and 2020 isn't over yet. The year just might have one more trick up its sleeve and give us the icing on the cake: disclosure. The buzz on social media, especially Twitter, is the idea that we are finally about to find out what the governments been hiding all along - aliens are real.
The reason people think we are about to see disclosure is because of a recent New York Times article titled "No Longer in Shadows, Pentagon’s U.F.O. Unit Will Make Some Findings Public". As optimistic as I want to be, the title alone should tell you that the 'books' are not going to be opened completely. Chances are, we are about to get just a trickle of info.
The idea of disclosure started first making waves when a Senate committee report mentioned the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force, a U.S. government program thought to no longer exist. The report published last month inadvertedly revealed details on the program, such as its spending on intelligence services aimed at identifying the unidentified flying vehicles military pilots were encountering.
Now the Task Force is ready to talk, but not to discuss the program in question. Instead, the promise is to release "some of its findings to the public within 180 days after passage of the intelligence authorization act." So we should expect something in six months, and probably a little more something every six months after - or until the story gets forgotten.
What we do know is that briefings to government committees, aerospace companies and other members of the government have been happening. Marco Rubio recenltly spoke on the issue, so this can be confirmed - but Rubio does leave plausible explanations as a possibility stating: “Maybe there is a completely, sort of, boring explanation for it. But we need to find out.”
What makes UFOlogists hopeful that this release is the real deal are the statements of astrophysicist Eric Davis, a defense contractor that was part of the program. Davis says that top officials at the Pentagon were briefed earlier this year about crash retrievals from “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.” The materials in the craft were not something scientists could create, thus the assumption that the material is extra-terrestrial.
But that is a huge leap. Tom Delonge, CEO of To The Stars Academy, announced last summer that he had purchased several pieces of 'metamaterials' from investigative journalist Linda Moulton Howe. The material was reported to have came from “an advanced aerospace vehicle of unknown origin” with a chain of custody dating to the mid-1990's. We haven't heard any findings, then the story breaks that we might have UFO's in our possession. Maybe just maybe Delonge knows something afterall, or maybe the material turned out to be nothing. Who knows.
The flipside of the argument lies between the lines, or statements, of all involved. This material and even the crash wreckage we seem to have in our possession is from an 'unknown origin'. Unknown does not mean alien - as much as I really want it to. And I can't help but think that we the people are being baited. The disclosure leaks are trying to build a fear of the unknown, a fear that will be used against us later.
Senator Rubio, acting chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, has openly said that his primary concerns are defense related since the unidentified aircraft are seen over American military bases. Rubio also rationally states that the technologies are "not in the American arsenal" and does wonder if China or Russia or some other adversary had made “some technological leap” that “allows them to conduct this sort of activity.” That seems to be the most logical answer, but it still could be Aliens. Maybe they will finally tell us.
Again, as much as I want it to be Aliens, the easiest answer shouldn't be ignored. And the easiest, most likely answer is that the debris and material is man made. Keep in mind, no article has yet to mention "recovered bodies" only debris and wreckage. Does this mean that the unidentified objects are drones? Possibly. And who is the leader when it comes to technology?
China makes many of our cell phones and just about every other piece of tech in your pocket and in your house. China might have just recently unleashed a virus that shut down the world. China is also known for keeping some pretty serious secrets, collecting data on US citizens via TikTok, and are quite the competitor. So I'm not saying it's China, but China sure is an easy scapegoat. In our highly politicized landscape, to expect disclosure to be anything but political is silly. And to expect unknown objects to not be used as a political tool is just as silly.
You might disagree, and I am not saying that China is the source of everything we might learn in the upcoming months about UFO's - but one wager I would take is that whatever information is released is going be used to further the surveillance state and extend the political divide between the US and China. I'm making predictions here, and I predict that even if it is Aliens, it will be blamed on China (and probably Russia will be linked as an accomplice). Screen shot this.
Many are optimistic that we will finally learn the truth, but you have to ask why now? Sure, we can hope that revealing the true nature of UFO's would cause some sort of worldwide unification. You could even argue what better time than now? After all, the world is in absolute choas - so why not lay all the cards on the table? Because governments worldwide don't like not having all the answers, and thus need time to figure out how to use the disclosure angle for political gain.
I can't help but think of Ronald Regan's statement way back in 1985:
"... when you stop to think that we're all God's children, wherever we may live in the world, I couldn't help but say to him, just think how easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from some other species from another planet outside in the universe. We'd forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries and we would find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this earth together"
As much as I have always seen that speech as a hint that we are not alone in the universe, I don't think we are about to learn the true nature of the universe, or that Aliens exist. We live in a different time. The Regan era had clear enemies that made it easy to pick sides. Today we have temporary political alliances that morph based on need. What we are seeing with these slow "disclosure" leaks is political opportunists trying to force their enemies hand.
That enemy, or scapegoat, has always been and always will be China and Russia. I don't know why they were chosen to be the worlds forever enemies, but people need a monster to rally against. Racism, sexism, climate change, Russia, China, a virus, aliens. The thing is, no one likes the idea of an enemy that they can't beat.
So which of those enemies listed sounds like we have a fighting chance to beat it? Unidentified Flying Objects from light years away with little green men onboard? Or China and Russia? One way or another when the 'disclosure' dust settles, their names wil be called and we will be left with the same tired enemies which will not be UFO's and Aliens.
