ALIEN INVASION MEMES: Israel Defense Forces Training For Attacks From Extraterrestrials - Stages UFO Threat Drills To Bolster Cyber Defense Network; Prime Minister Netanyahu Says "We Must Be Prepared"?!

February 28, 2015 -  ISRAEL
 - Lights appear in the dim night sky. An unknown number of alien spaceships are descending on Earth. The world's inhabitants take refuge in shelters. Time is running out. How would the Israel Defense Forces face this alien invasion threatening to destroy the world?

The IDF looks to its tech-force for answers.

This was the premise for last night's training exercise for the Israel Air Force's computer programming unit "Ofek" (horizon), meant to instill in the participants the importance of cyber defense by trying to sabotage the technological system of the alien spacecraft.

"The participants of the exercise work daily on developing operational programs for the air force," explained the commander of the engineering unit to the IDF website, Lt. Col. Meir.

"The goal was to make them understand the importance developing [cyber] defense. We adapted the exercise to Generation Y, which loves challenges. So we prepared the framing story of an alien invasion," explained the commander.

This strange exercise was all about putting the soldiers in the enemy's shoes.

"During the exercise, teams competed against each other to hack the intended system we built for them," said the head of the cyber department, Maj. Gil. While trying to hack the system, the major said the soldiers tried to gather as much as information as possible on the alien spaceships.

"We wanted them to understand the importance of guarding the secrecy of  [air] force information," said the major.

Israel has been the ever-increasing target of cyber attacks in recent years. During the 50-day conflict between Israel and Hamas this past summer, it appeared that Hamas managed to infiltrate a number of civilian communication systems, according to the IDF, who also mounted their own cyber attacks against Hamas-affiliated websites. 

Last week, The Jerusalem Post reported that Gaza-based hackers launched cyber attacks against Israeli targets using a pornographic video clip.

Last Sunday, Israel’s cabinet approved the creation of a National Cyber Authority, a companion to the already-existing Israel National Cyber Bureau (INCB), that would focus on cyber threats in the civilian sector.

“Cyber threats can paralyze nations. This is a strategic threat that can paralyze and hurt no less than other threats in various fields and we must be prepared to for it on the national and international levels,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. - Jerusalem Post.

EXOPOLITICAL DISCLOSURE: President Obama And Top Officials Secretly Briefed On Extraterrestrial Cover-Up!

John Podesta and President Obama

February 24, 2015 -  UNITED STATES
 - John Podesta's public admission that his biggest regret in leaving the Obama White House was his failure to have UFO files disclosed continues to fuel a media firestorm. Much of the media interest has failed, however, to raise questions beyond Podesta's X-Files fascination, as exemplified in initial reports, and repeated on Feb 17 in coverage by Fox News and The Independent. A key question being ignored is how did Podesta know such files existed, and had anyone briefed him about them?

It has now been learned that one of Podesta's unofficial sources for the existence of such files is Disclosure Project advocate Dr Steven Greer. Greer announced on Feb 14 that he had unofficially “briefed” Podesta about an extraterrestrial cover-up in early 2009, soon after President Obama took office. Podesta at the time was in the process of completing his work as co-chair of Obama’s Presidential transition team. Greer’s briefing documents were to be passed on to President Obama himself, and to his then-CIA Director Leon Panetta.

Greer explained the background to his unofficial briefing:
An attorney working with Mr. Podesta requested the briefing and we assembled an extensive file for Mr. Podesta to provide to the newly- elected President Obama. There was also support for this process from a senior CIA official who is friendly to Disclosure and the briefing was also provided to then-CIA Director Leon Panetta.
The cover letter to the extensive briefing documents provided to Podesta is six pages long and is titled “Special Presidential Briefing for President Barack Obama.” Dated Jan 23, 2009, the cover letter was publicly released by Greer in Dec 2012. The cover letter contains references to some of the material provided to Podesta, including how Presidential administrations have been systemically denied access to information concerning extraterrestrial life and technology on the grounds of “misguided secrecy”. Greer wrote:
Because of this misguided secrecy, the wondrous new sciences related to advanced energy generation, propulsion and transportation have been withheld from the people. These advances include the generation of limitless clean energy from the so-called zero point energy field and quantum vacuum flux field from the space around us, and propulsion that has been termed (incorrectly) anti-gravity. The field of electromagnetic energy that is teeming all around us and which is embedded within the fabric of space/time can easily run all of the energy needs of the Earth – without pollution, oil, gas, coal, centralized utilities or nuclear power.
It’s significant that when Podesta was appointed Counselor to President Obama, his duties as described on the White House website “include overseeing climate change and energy policy.” This firmly suggests that the UFO files that Podesta requested involved some of the classified information on free energy technologies that were described in Greer’s briefing.

It’s important to emphasize that Podesta almost certainly had Obama’s support in accessing UFO files that could revolutionize the energy industry, and end U.S. dependence on fossil fuels and nuclear energy. Podesta’s Feb 13 twitter message signaled his frustration at being unable to access such classified files which he clearly believed existed. Podesta was undoubtedly taking one final swing at secretly appointed national security officials that had denied him and the President access out of “misguided secrecy.” Thankfully Greer’s disclosure of his secret briefing of Podesta in 2009 and the cover letter that accompanied the briefing documents is now a matter of the public record. - Examiner.

CONTACT: Real Or Imagined - UFO Communications Evident In Vancouver Skies?!

February 24, 2015 -  VANCOUVER, CANADA - An exclusive video posted to YouTube revealed evidence for communications bridging the gap between human consciousness and other cosmic intelligences. A series of displays from mysterious sky objects recorded in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, demonstrated how these entities appeared to possess an uncanny knack for showing up in the right place at the right time whenever the cameras were rolling. Captured over a five-year period, the luminous interactive displays were recorded using two different optical systems, including a professional series digital broadcast camera featuring a redundant triple-sensor array.

The video features highlights from five years of local skywatching and contact documentation: “A pattern of UFO communications is evident in the skies over Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Bidirectional signaling bridges earth and air to evoke signs of psychic contact taking place over a multi-year period. Two different electronic instruments register the same repeatable phenomena indicating open lines of communications from advanced intelligences cooperating in the development of human consciousness.”

WATCH: A Pattern of UFO Communications.

According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, semaphore is a method of visual communications employing lights or flags that in late 18th century France utilized telescopes to perform long distance sightings of signals between fixed transmission points. The evidence appears to show that semaphore, an established mode of terrestrial communications utilizing lights and telescopes and the recent Vancouver, British Columbia video utilizing lights and telephoto optics possess more than a few similar traits.

The signaling interactions revealed in the video also appeared to show UFOs offering receipt of transmission acknowledgements like those utilized in data communications networks. Furthermore, synchronization of signals was evident in these instances where a clearly defined order of events occurs after commencement of signal transmission from the ground. These synchronized sequential communications between UFOs and people on the ground appeared to provide local evidence of an emerging global trend. To further clarify, the ordering of these events was depicted on screen as:

1. Signal transmission
2. Receipt of transmission acknowledgement

Contemporary digital data communications between computers on the Internet utilize binary on/off encoding to transmit information in strings of ones and zeroes. A brief exposition on the evolution of binary encoding in human history cites its appearance in the Sanskrit Vedas, the communications logic of German philosopher Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz and the Boolean logic of English mathematician George Boole.

Readers who wish to deepen their understanding of how seemingly meaningless on/off iterations can convey meaning between communicators may try using this free online translator to decode the following strings of numbers written in binary and paste their translations in the comments section below:

01010100 01101000 01100101 01110010 01100101 00100000 01101001 01110011 00100000 01101101 01101111 01110010 01100101 00100000 01110100 01101111 00100000 01101100 01101001 01100110 01100101 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100001 01101110 00100000 01110111 01101000 01100001 01110100 00100000 01110111 01100101 00100000 01101011 01101110 01101111 01110111 00101110

The highly publicized 1974 Arecibo message transmitted by professional scientists into space fabricated the popular illusion of mainstream science’s interest in communicating with extraterrestrials. 25 years later it was revealed by Cornell News how this event had less to do with any serious attempt at understanding the subtleties of human-ET communications, offering in their place only a crude unilateral exhibition of the transmission capabilities of that era. As far as communications were concerned, Arecibo was all about affectation in the absence of authenticity.

This reporter had previously concluded that possibly more valid instrumental evidence for ET contact was published to YouTube in 2012 than SETI has produced in the past 40 years, a scenario which apparently eluded teams of scientists struggling to appear relevant during an era of widely-accessible, affordable digital night vision. The suggestion that authentic human-ET communications were taking place outside of the sphere of common public knowledge during the time of Arecibo was highlighted in the 1977 film “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” wherein elite operatives of an international shadow governmental body are portrayed using sound and light signals to communicate with ET spacecraft.

In present day contact circles, the theme of elitist politics runs deep through the CSETI culture, whose skywatching protocols apparently require participants to voluntarily surrender their rights to free speech in a country where those rights are protected by constitutional law. A document hosted on the website titled “AGREEMENT FOR PARTICIPANTS IN CSETI’S AMBASSADORS TO THE UNIVERSE TRAINING RETREAT” states unambiguously how signatories “Agree to hold all proceedings of this CSETI Ambassadors to the Universe Training Retreat confidential and agree that it shall not be shared publicly without the prior express written consent of CSETI.”

Are such undemocratic and elitist practices providing a smokescreen of cover for professional misconduct and potentially criminal abuses? Some attendees at the reportedly disastrous 2013 Contact in the Desert UFO conference appeared to believe this to be the case.

The four incidents of clearly illustrated Vancouver UFO communications from the years 2009, 2013 and 2014 depicted in the video “A Pattern of UFO Communications” exceeded one Latin maxim’s consideration for the number three. Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Norman Mineta had illustrated his own plan-detecting methodology by citing the rule of three on a number of occasions as expressed in the maxim “omne trium perfectum” (Latin: “Everything that comes in groups of three is complete”).

“When you see one of something happen, it’s an accident. When you see two of the same thing happening, it’s a trend. When you see three, it’s a plan,” said the former transportation secretary in an on-camera interview posted to YouTube. Click here to watch former United States Secretary of Transportation and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Norman Mineta explain how the rule of three guided his analytic perspective on questions related to national air transportation safety.

To clarify further, in his testimony before the 9/11 commission, Norman Mineta stated the following:

MR. MINETA: Absolutely. And in terms of what motivated me to bring all the aircraft down, as you see one thing happen, that’s an accident. When you see two of the same thing occur, it’s a pattern. But when you see three of the same thing occur, it’s a program. And so at that point I decided to bring all the aircraft down.

During an interview with UC Berkley’s Daily Californian newspaper, the former transportation secretary observed how “If you see one of something occur you consider that an accident. But when you see two of the same thing occur then you know that there is a pattern or a trend. In this instant we had three of the same thing occur, and that is a program or a plan. So I then informed the FAA to bring all the airplanes down.”

By such a Mineta standard reiterated below it can be understood that multiple incidents of UFO communications in Vancouver are no accident and not simply a pattern but are in fact indicative of planned communications leading to the unfoldment of human consciousness and the integration of modern civilization with a larger cosmic society. “Well, when that third one went into the Pentagon, it’s like anything else. If you see one of something it’s an accident. When you see two of the same thing, it’s a pattern or a trend. But when you three — see three of the same thing occurring, then you know it’s a program or a plan.” - News Inside Out.

EXOPOLITICAL DISCLOSURE: The Thomas Reed UFO And Abduction Case - UFO Story Lands In A Hall Of History, The Great Barrington Museum In Massachusetts Accepts Family's 1960s Account Of Aliens!

Graphic illustration

 - This is how the story goes: It’s 1966, and 6-year-old Thomas Reed is in his bedroom on his family’s horse farm in the Berkshires when the encounters begin.

Strange lights. Strange figures in the hallway. Suddenly, he’s in the woods near his home looking at a UFO. Then he and his younger brother, Matthew, are inside the craft. He’s shown a projection of a willow tree.

The following year, there is another incident at their home on Boardman Street in Sheffield. More strange lights. The sound of doors slamming. Then the boys are back inside the vessel. The next thing Thomas knows, he’s in his driveway being scooped up by his mother, who has been searching frantically for the boys on horseback.

Two years later, the family is driving on Route 7 when they see strange lights in the sky. Their car stalls, and then Thomas and his brother and mother and grandmother find themselves in a giant room. He is brought to meet two strange, ant-like figures, then placed in some sort of cage. Next thing, he’s back near the car.
Reed has told these stories many times, and it has not always gone well. But recently, his tale had found recognition in an unlikely place. The Great Barrington Historical Society & Museum has formally inducted the UFO story.

Thomas Reed says he was 6 when he was first taken by extraterrestrials.
What does that mean? “It means that we believe it is true,” said Debbie Oppermann, the director of the society.

“I know we’re going to get a lot of backlash. We’re going to get hammered,” she said. “But we have given it an awful lot of thought, and, based on the evidence we’ve been given, we believe this is a significant and true event.”

The historical society believes it is the first time a “mainstream” historical society or museum in the United States has declared a UFO encounter to be historical fact. But the decision was far from unanimous; of the nine members of the historical society’s board, three were “strongly opposed” to the decision, Oppermann said, but “it passed with consensus.”

The Reed case already has its own display in the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, N.M.; now, it’s about to get one in Great Barrington, about 2 miles from where the alleged encounters took place.

What most interests the historical society is the 1969 encounter, because dozens of people in the area reported seeing an unidentified flying object around that time, typically described as a disk-shaped craft performing acrobatic maneuvers in the sky. Many of those eyewitnesses called the local radio station, WSBS, which covered the sightings. (The radio station has provided documentation to the historical society, which interviewed one of those eyewitnesses. They have also examined a polygraph test taken by Thomas Reed.)

The Reed abductions are well known in the world of UFO enthusiasts. Thomas Reed this month was a featured speaker at the International UFO Congress in Arizona, the world’s largest UFO convention. And the story has been the subject of television shows and radio programs through the years. But Reed, who now lives in Tennessee, said the recognition from the museum is historic.

“They took a stand and have chosen to recognize something that many people in their position would have stepped away from,” said Reed, who is now 55. “We know what we saw, and it was not local. It was definitely off-world. And it affected my whole family, and there has been a lot of post-traumatic stress.”

The subject of UFOs and alien encounters has always occupied a fringe position in American culture, with many believers labeled as tin-hat conspiracy theorists obsessed with government coverups. But polls show that the number of Americans who believe has been growing. A 2012 study by Kelton Research, a market research company, found that 36 percent of Americans believe aliens have visited the earth.

Director Debbie Oppermann says the Great Barrington Historical Society believes the Reed family story of having been abducted by aliens in 1969 is true, in
part because dozens of people reported seeing a UFO at that time.  MATTHEW CAVANAUGH FOR THE BOSTON GLOBE

But “proof” remains elusive for many, including Ted Acworth, a scientist with a doctorate from Stanford who was doing postdoctoral work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology when he was tapped to be the “science guy” on the History Channel show “UFO Hunters.”

Acworth looked at some of the more famous cases around the world, and he said he was never able to find what he would consider physical evidence of alien encounters.

“I’m convinced that there are things happening that are unexplainable, but is that proof of a UFO?” said Acworth, who lives in Boston and now works on technology startups. “A lot of highly credible people believe in their bones that they saw something. It’s not just fringe wackos. But the nearest habitable planet is many, many light years away, and I don’t think they’d come here just to scare people and fly home again. They’d make themselves known.”

Reed says he is not trying to convert nonbelievers. Their scorn has been a part of his life.

His mother owned a restaurant in town, and there were those who came in only to make her life miserable. He got beat up a lot by the other kids. His grandmother used to hold a pillow so he could punch it to get his frustration out. After the third encounter, his mother boarded up the boys’ bedroom, quickly sold the house, and they moved a few miles up the road to Great Barrington.

All he can do, he says, is follow what his mother always told him: Speak the truth.

“It hasn’t helped us in any way to talk about,” Reed said. “We’re not making any money. This has tarnished our life. This has smeared our family’s name. It can only hurt you when someone Googles your name.

“But when you have something extraordinary like this happen to you, how do you keep a lid on it?”

EXOPOLITICAL COVER-UP: Did A UFO Crash In Canada - Military Exercises Spawns UFO Reports?!

Posts like these were circulating on Twitter and Facebook on Wednesday night, with people suggesting there was a UFO crash near Jackhead, Man. It was
actually an airplane being used in a military training exercise, according to the Canadian Forces. (Twitter)

February 24, 2015 -  MANITOBA, CANADA
 - Social media reports of a possible UFO sighting last night near Jackhead, Man., are not true, says the Canadian Forces, which attributed the bright light people saw to an airplane from a training exercise.

On Wednesday night, several people said on Twitter and Facebook that they saw a bright light in the sky, fuelling speculation that it may have been an unidentified flying object.

The rumour became stronger when photos were posted of Canadian Forces vehicles in the area, with some people claiming the military was there to contain a UFO crash site.

But it was not a UFO at all, says Lt.-Col. Paul Davies, commanding officer 38 Territorial Battalion Group, which is involved in an Arctic Response Company Group training exercise on Lake Winnipeg this week.

"There's no aliens, just my friends in the air force who are out there helping us on this exercise," Davies told CBC News on Thursday.

"I have the commander of that air force contingent sitting right beside me and, you know, he assures us that that was not a UFO, but that was him."

About 150 military personnel are taking part in Exercise Arctic Bison 2015, which includes the 38 Canadian Brigade Group, the 2nd Battalion of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, the 4th Canadian Ranger Patrol Group, and 440 Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Force.

Davies said soldiers are training to deal with a plane crash and provide ground search and rescue support in the Arctic.

The bright light that people saw, he explained, came from an airplane that takes off very quickly.

"From a distance it may have looked like it was going straight up in the air, but it wasn't," he said. "It was just us out there playing our games."

UFO SIGHTINGS: More On That Purple UFO Over Peru That Interrupted A TV Show - February 10, 2015!

February 24, 2015 - LIMA, PERU
 - A television production crew in Lima, Peru, videotaped a purple-colored disc-shaped UFO hovering in the distant sky near a construction site.

So far, there's no official explanation for the object.

According to Peru This Week, television show "Alto al Crimen" was shooting an episode in the upscale Miraflores district of Lima on Feb. 10. The show's host, Lima Congressman Renzo Reggiardo, halted an interview to allow his camera operator to focus on the strange-looking purple object in the sky.

WATCH: UFO over Peru.

Both distant and zoomed-in perspectives of the UFO reveal a saucer-shaped object, with a large central bright purple section, tapering off on either end. The extreme right end appears almost black in color, while the opposite end seems to be a darker purple shade than the center part of the object. The video also reveals that sometimes the two dark ends appear to become smaller and larger.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing the aerial object for up to two hours, and yet, no video has emerged showing how the UFO left the scene. So, the question remains: How, exactly, did it go away? Did it fall to the ground, float away or speed up and vanish over the nearby ocean? Or perhaps (as in some UFO reports over the years), did it simply vanish?

The Peru chapter of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) is investigating this case, seeking more eyewitnesses who may have videotaped the purple aerial object from different vantage points.

The image below shows the Miraflores area of Lima, Peru, bordering the Pacific Ocean, where the UFO was seen.

Some possible explanations, according to include a drone or a kite.

The following composite image shows the object in two positions beyond the construction site where it was spotted by eyewitnesses.

EXOPOLITICAL DISCLOSURE: "#TheTruthIsOutThere" - Author Leslie Kean Says John Podesta Is Pulling Back The Curtain On UFOs!

February 21, 2015 -  UNITED STATES
 - It was the tweet heard round the worlds. On John Podesta's last day at the White House on February 13th, the longtime Presidential counselor, who is likely to chair a 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign, dashed off a confession that lit the blogosphere with thousands of retweets and comments: "Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files."

Along with the media, which couldn't resist a spoof by late-night comedian Jimmy Fallon, conspiracy theorists are having a field day. Taking Podesta's barb as confirmation of fantastic coverups by operatives with knowledge of extraterrestrials and twisted political agendas, they imagine Podesta himself holds devastating secrets. Some are claiming with bravado that their own activism is what prompted his recent lighthearted remark.

The facts hardly bear that out.

Actually, as surprising as the tweet was, Podesta's position on the controversial issue was not exactly news. A staunch proponent of open government, he has previously called for the release of any government files on unidentified flying objects, or more broadly, unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), that merit such action under existing law. As Chief of Staff for President Bill Clinton, Podesta pressed for Executive Order 12958 which declassified broad categories of information formerly withheld on the grounds of national security.

In 2002, Podesta began publicly supporting what became a landmark Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed by the Coalition for Freedom of Information, an independent advocacy group. NASA had been stonewalling and refusing to release its records concerning a significant 1965 UFO incident in Kecksburg, PA. Many witnesses described seeing a fireball in the evening sky, followed by a controlled landing and the systematic military recovery of a spacecraft-like object, rushed away on the back of a flatbed truck. As reported by local radio and newspapers, U.S. military personnel cordoned off the area, investigated the site, and left without ever providing a full report of the incident other than to dismiss it as a meteor.

During the lawsuit's final hearing in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in 2007, the exasperated Presiding Judge, Emmet G. Sullivan, declared that "heads should roll" at NASA and that NASA's case was a "ball of yarn." He approved a settlement that required NASA to comb through hundreds of documents in specified locations, and provide them to journalist and plaintiff Leslie Kean, under the watchful eye of the court.

Success at forcing an agency to do this kind of extensive historical search under FOIA without Congressional intervention was unprecedented. Podesta called the victory "a triumph for open government and the spirit of inquiry."

Coalition for Freedom of Information in 2003. (Credit: courtesy SCI FI Channel)

But - there was one problem. The resulting documents did not include one iota of information relating to the Kecksburg case, despite an earnest and thorough effort by NASA staff. Three hundred boxes were searched, on top of the hundreds of pages released during the court proceedings prior to the settlement. Yet they revealed nothing about the case at hand.

Could these be the "UFO files" that Podesta was alluding to in his tweet? Might there be others as well, stored in locations inaccessible to the FOIA in violation of the law?

Podesta has been a brave voice for sanity and objectivity on a subject that is generally considered unworthy of serious discussion. In a foreword for Kean's 2010 book, UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record, Podesta wrote: "The time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue." Describing himself as "a curious skeptic" who understands the difference between fact and fiction, he said the American people "want to know, and they can handle the truth."

Official investigations around the world have consistently found that a small but significant percentage of sightings defy conventional explanation, most of them involving police officers, military personnel, pilots and air traffic controllers. Physical evidence such as radar returns, measurable effects on the environment, or scientifically analyzed photographs accompany the best cases.

In 2011, Podesta hosted a private meeting of government officials, scientists, and military and intelligence experts, organized by Kean and her coalition, at his liberal think tank, the Center for American Progress. A panel presented expert briefings backing the establishment of a modest official project to evaluate UAP in cooperation with other countries.

"The official position of the U.S., which has denied the existence of any abnormal aerial phenomena since 1969, is a weighty handicap and has a negative influence on the attitude of many governments," wrote Yves Sillard, former Director General of the French National Space Center, in his briefing paper. "If this position could be modified, the U.S. would probably play a leading role in this necessary international effort."

Ricardo Bermúdez, a retired Air Force general who directs the Chilean investigative effort, agrees. "United States participation would be beneficial for all countries," he stated.

A U.S. agency is long overdue. The Air Force's official investigation, Project Blue Book, was terminated in 1970 after two decades, since no sightings were determined to pose a national security threat. Yet over 700 cases remained unexplained. Since then, no branch of the government has investigated UAP.

This lack of both transparency and responsive action to alarming UFO incidents undermines public trust. Some unidentified objects may be attributable to foreign military aircraft or drones, and should be of general defense interest. Other phenomena display such unusual characteristics that they are of broader scientific interest. Under certain circumstances, UAP can even raise air safety concerns. Still, the FAA discourages pilots from reporting any such incidents, in stark contrast to policy in Europe and South America.

Official agencies in France and Chile, along with other South American countries, conduct rigorous, open UAP investigations. In 2014, the heads of these offices met in Paris for the first time, to begin a cooperative venture. The U.K. spent decades collecting data, but closed down its office in 2008 due to the overwhelming stream of Freedom of Information requests besieging the staff. Interest was so great that the Ministry of Defense decided to simply release all its documents online.

Yet here at home, a 2012 poll showed that nearly 80% of Americans believe the government has concealed information about UFOs. As a result, frustrated citizens turn to fringe conspiracists seeking some way of understanding our irrational denial of this very real phenomenon.

When UFO events occur here, civilian groups do the best they can in battling the obstacles to investigating them. At Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on Nov. 7, 2006, a metallic disc was observed hovering over the United Airlines terminal for at least five minutes, before shooting straight up in the sky, at great speed, cutting a hole in the cloud bank. This was not a flying machine known to any of the aviation experts who witnessed or later analyzed the event.

On March 13, 1997, hundreds if not thousands of citizens, including the governor at the time, saw massive delta-shaped objects gliding silently over Arizona. Like the Kecksburg case, this event has never been explained despite a class action lawsuit filed in 2000 by witnesses in Phoenix. A court-ordered search for information was issued to the Department of Defense, but once again, no pertinent records were obtained.

Nonetheless, much more data on UFOs has been accumulated than ever before, and files have been released around the world. The phenomenon's physical reality is now firmly established. But its nature and origin remain a problem. Meanwhile, astronomers have reported that there could be as many as 40 billion habitable Earth-size planets in our galaxy; one out of every five sunlike stars has a planet the size of Earth orbiting it in the Goldilocks zone.

We need to join the other countries taking responsible action in addressing this persistent mystery, preferably at the White House level where The Office of Science and Technology Policy is well positioned to take on this task. John Podesta supports the effort to appoint a government staffer for this purpose - and that is no surprise. - Huffington Post.

SPACE: The Final Frontier - Professor Stephen Hawking Says "Colonize Planets To Save The Human Race"!

February 21, 2015 -  SPACE - World famous physicist Stephen Hawking says humankind should colonize other planets to ensure the future of the species. He claimed armed aggression could end civilization and that space travel would provide somewhere to go.

While taking an American visitor on tour of London’s Science Museum, the physicist said colonizing other planets could be “life insurance” for whatever embattled remnants of the human race still existed following a nuclear apocalypse.

Sending humans to the moon changed the future of the human race in ways that we don't yet understand,” he said.

It hasn't solved any of our immediate problems on planet Earth, but it has given us new perspectives on them and caused us to look both outward and inward.”

I believe that the long term future of the human race must be space and that it represents an important life insurance for our future survival, as it could prevent the disappearance of humanity by colonizing other planets,” he added.

His remarks came while he escorted Adaeze Uyanwah, from Palmdale, California, around the museum, a prize she won after producing a blog and video describing her “perfect day” in the capital.

Hawking also said, were it possible, he would eradicate aggression from the list of human shortcomings, saying it had the capacity to end humanity.

The human failing I would most like to correct is aggression. It may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or a partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.”

“A major nuclear war would be the end of civilization, and maybe the end of the human race.”

When asked which human facets he valued the most, he said “empathy.”

The quality I would most like to magnify is empathy. It brings us together in a peaceful, loving state,” Hawking said.

Uyanwah, who is a teacher and a creative writer, beat tens of thousands of contestants to win the prize.
She said the opportunity to meet the professor was “incredible.”

“It's incredible to think that decades from now, when my grandchildren are learning Stephen Hawking's theories in science class, I'll be able to tell them I had a personal meeting with him and heard his views first hand. It's something I'll never forget.”

Hawking has previously issued other bleak warnings about the future of the human race. In December last year, he said artificial intelligence had the capacity to spell the end of civilization. - RT.

UFO SIGHTINGS: MUFON Cases - Oklahoma Witnesses Describe Two UFOs Near Ground Level; And South Carolina Witnesses Report Cloaking UFO!

February 21, 2015 -  UNITED STATES - The following reports constitutes the latest sightings of UFOs from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) .

Oklahoma witnesses describe two UFOs near ground level

An Oklahoma witness at Ada reported watching two objects hovering under 300 feet just south of his home, according to testimony in Case 63403 from the MUFON witness reporting database.

The reporting witness was in his living room at 9:32 p.m. on Friday, February 13, 2015, when he noticed that his son had driven onto his property, but his vehicle was stopped near the gate approximately 300 feet east of the house.

“He sat there about 10 minutes or so,” the witness stated. “I thought it was a bit unusual, but I have seen him drive past the house down into the pasture checking out deer or coyotes, so I didn’t think much of it.”

The father and son witnesses at Ada, OK, first noticed two UFOs silently hovering under 300 feet near their property beginning about 9:32 p.m. on February 13, 2015. Pictured: Ada, OK. (Credit: Google)

A short while later the son came into the house.

“He said, ‘Dad you need to come take a look at this.’ So I got up and we went outside. He pointed to the south of the house and about 300 yards or so away were two objects, one a diamond-shaped object about 300 or so feet above the ground and the other a thick donut-shaped object about 150 feet up and maybe 100 feet west of the diamond-shaped object.”

The witness described the objects.

“Both were a dull orange color. The diamond-shaped object seemed to ‘sparkle’ while the donut remained a dull orange the entire time we observed it.”

The witness went back inside to retrieve binoculars hoping to see more details, but they only made the objects seem brighter.

One of the objects was diamond-shaped about 300 or so feet above the ground and the other was a thick donut-shape about 150 feet up and maybe 100 feet west of the diamond-shaped object. Pictured: Ada, OK. (Credit: Google)

The larger object then began to move.

“After approximately 10 minutes or so we noticed the larger object, the diamond-shaped one, started moving very slowly to the east. Soon it was behind the trees.”

The two then moved to the front or east side of the house for a better look.

“We couldn’t see it at this point but could see the glow behind the trees, so we moved out by the road in front of the house just as the object moved east out of the trees.”

The witness described the object’s movement.

“As it moved across the road it started to rise. By the time it had crossed the road it was maybe 700-800 feet up. It sat there maybe 10 minutes or so. At this point we noticed a plane maybe five miles or so east of the house moving north to south and it was at this time that I noticed we could hear the plane, but there was absolutely no noise coming from either object we were looking at.”

They turned their attention back to the smaller object.

“The donut-shaped object had not moved at all. After about 10 minutes of hovering above the trees east of our county road the larger object started moving east again climbing to about 1,000 feet and then it started moving north, climbed to about 1,500 feet, and started flashing lights. We watched it move north until it was out of sight.”

The smaller object remained in place.

“The donut-shaped object never moved at all and eventually seemed to fade away. After a few more minutes we went back into the house. The diamond-shaped object was maybe the size of a 727 and the donut-shaped object was about one third that size. I spent 27 years in the military and have lived all over the world. I was part of the Third Marine Air Wing and so was around aircraft most of my life and I have never seen anything like what I saw that night.

Ada is a city in and the county seat of Pontotoc County, Oklahoma, population 16,810. No photos or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on February 17, 2015. Oklahoma MUFON is investigating.

Oklahoma is currently a UFO Alert Level 5 – with 0.52 sightings per million population based on MUFON January 2015 statistics. Oklahoma received a total of two UFO reports in January.

The UFO Alert Rating System is based on five levels – 1 through 5 – where states with 4.01 or higher reports per million residents are rated an Alert 1; 3.01 – 4.0 reports are an Alert 2; 2.51 – 3.0 are an Alert 3; 2.01 – 2.5 are an Alert 4; and those states with 2.0 or lower are rated an Alert 5.

South Carolina witnesses report cloaking UFO

Two South Carolina witnesses at McCornick reported watching a circle-shaped, translucent object that slowly moved across the sky, according to testimony in Case 63235 from the MUFON witness reporting database.

The husband and wife were fishing on Clarkshill Lake – also known as Lake Strom Thurmond – when the object was first noticed. The reporting witness looked away from a contrail in the sky – and then back again – and noticed something to the right of the contrail.

“I could see the whole right side of object, but it was translucent,” the witness stated. “The left side was completely transparent. I could make out the outline of the right side with a pattern on the inside. It must have been tilted because I could make out the whole right side of the circular object.”

The witness pointed out the object to her husband.

“I said to my husband, look there is an object, but I knew he would not be able to see it unless his eyes were already fixed on the object. After pointing to the object and telling him it’s to the right of contrail it went completely transparent.”

The witness described the object.

“The object appeared to be very slowly moving to the left of contrail when it went completely transparent. I was completely in awe that I finally had witnessed what I know was a UFO. I have always been a believer and hoped that one day I would witness such an event.”

The witness will continue to watch the skies for future events.

“The fact that I saw what was apparently an object cloaking itself doesn’t leave me questioning what I witnessed. I know what I saw that day and I will never forget it.”

Lake Strom Thurmond, also known as Clarks Hill Lake, is a reservoir at the border between Georgia and South Carolina in the Savannah River Basin. The lake is about 27 miles northwest of Augusta, GA.

South Carolina is currently a UFO Alert Level 5 – with 0.42 sightings per million population based on MUFON January 2015 statistics. South Carolina received a total of two UFO reports in January.

UFO SIGHTINGS: Can You Help Identify UFO Spotted Over Cornish Beach, Cornwall, United Kingdom - February 17, 2015?!

Close up of the Bude object.

February 21, 2015 -  UNITED KINGDOM
 - A 'UFO' has been captured in a photograph in the skies above Cornwall - which has emerged on the day RAF jets scrambled to intercept two long-range Russian “Bear” planes over the region.

One Cornish beachgoer spotted something in the sky and, despite close scrutiny, it was not obvious what that object was - causing much speculation.
Members of the Cornwall UFO Research Group have been debating a possible extraterrestrial sighting after this image was posted on their Facebook page and began circulating on social media.

Bude object.
The image gained more interest today as RAF fighter jets escorted a Russian bomber plane away from the skies off the Cornish coast.

The picture appears to show a “triangular shape” hovering above the walkers gathered on Summerleaze Beach at Bude.

And David Gillham who posted it to the group, said it was the second sighting of the strange object in as many weeks.

“Just received this photo ... from a person in Bude. Any ideas what this object could be?,” he commented.

“Taken at Summerleaze Beach, Bude, N Cornwall 17th February 2015. Looks triangular....but I have no idea what it is?

“The second sighting I have witnessed around N Cornwall in two weeks!”

Members have discussed the possibility that image depicts a Russia bomber, similar to those spotted off the Cornish coast yesterday.

But as one individual points out, the photograph was taken on February 17 – the day before.

So the strange flying object appears to remain a mystery for now. - Western Morning News.

UFO SIGHTINGS: The Latest UFO Sightings Across The Globe - February 17, 2015!

UFO over California

WATCH: UFO over Mexico's Popocatepetl volcano - February 16, 2015.

WATCH: Triangle-shaped UFO sighting over Santa Clara, California - February 15, 2015.

Eye-witness report:
This took place at about 11PM. I was heading southbound on Lawrence Expwy and started filming at about the top of the bridge above El Camino Real. There was absolutely no sound when I saw this flying object. As I approached closer to it I became very surprised. That’s when I started speaking. This flying object had basically stopped in the air and was hovering very close to a house. It was basically hovering in a residential like area. The area was right around Benton and Lawrence Expwy on the side towards the new Apple headquarters.

I stopped filming because this big wall protecting the residential area from the Expressway blocked me. Also, I had merged all the way to the right and did not want to stay there.

I quickly took a u-turn to capture more footage and find out what it really was. It had completely vanished. I even drove all the way back to the top of the bridge over El Camino Real. Nothing.

Drove up to the top of the Kaiser Permanente hospital parking lot building. Still no sight of it anymore. It was just gone.


WATCH: UFO sighting above San Antonio, Texas - February 10, 2015.

Eye-witness report:
While Skywatching I notice this low flying orb above some trees. No FAA navigational lights were visible. Only a huge glowing light. It appeared to be monitoring the area.

I decided to pan back using the fence/tree tops as reference points..You can clearly see this unidentified object was traveling behind some tree tops,... giving us the altitude it was traveling...

This was an awesome sighting due to how huge and low it was traveling. On the video capture you can see some sort of craft... At some point it travels behind some tree tops and out of view. In my opinion this glowing object was clearly no aircraft or satellite weather balloon.

UFO SIGHTINGS: MUFON Cases - UFOs Were Communicating Says South Carolina Witness!

Two triangle-shaped objects were seen over Spartanburg, SC, beginning about 8:40 p.m. on February 6, 2015. Pictured: Spartanburg, SC. (Credit: Google)

 - Two South Carolina witnesses at Spartanburg reported watching two triangle-shaped UFOs that appeared to be communicating between each other with lights while the witnesses’ electronic equipment failed, according to testimony in Case 63142 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The reporting witness and her fiancée first saw two triangle-shaped objects in the sky beginning about 8:40 p.m. on February 6, 2015.

“The lower end of the triangles had bright blue points while the top end had bright pink lights,” the witness stated. “One would blink on and off and the other would answer with its own series of blinks.”

The witnesses were sober at the time.

“Neither of us had had any drinks. We were surprised by what we saw. We drove to a store, and after parking, could still see them clearly.”

A short time later the objects were gone.

“When coming back out into the parking lot; both objects were gone. There were no stars in their place. It was just a regular clear night.”

The witnesses also noticed other air traffic at the time.

“I will add that when we first saw them, there was also a plane in the air much higher than the objects themselves.”

The witnesses also noticed that their electronics failed during the event.

“Our phones were not working well, and my laptop wasn’t receiving any signal – neither of which has ever happened before. When I looked at them the hair on the back of my neck raised. I don’t know what that might mean to you. I didn’t feel afraid, but I felt that there might have been an energy in the air that we as humans might not understand.”

Their attempts at photography did not work.

“We tried to take a picture, but our phones just wouldn’t work. Every time we pointed them towards the objects, our phones would just show static.”

During the event, the witnesses said that their cell phones and computer were not working properly. Pictured: Spartanburg, SC. (Credit: Google)

Spartanburg is the largest city in and the county seat of Spartanburg County, South Carolina, population 316,997.
