"Did America get 'ripped off'? UFO disclosure bill derided for lack of transparency."

The recent measure directs the government to disclose to the public at least some records about UFOs, but some transparency advocates don't think it goes far enough.

As per the article:

"Those hoping momentous revelations were on the horizon regarding what the government knows about UFOs may be slightly disappointed with legislation Congress passed last week.

Yes, the recent measure directs the government to disclose to the public at least some records about UFOs.

But you'll need to be patient: Under the provision, the executive branch has up to 25 years within a record's creation to make it public. And even then, the president can determine that any records must remain classified for national security."

So, a step forward, but ...

"2023 marked historic progress for UFO science, though no smoking gun for aliens exists yet"

"Many say UAPs, also called UFOs, are real — but probably not aliens. This year, we got a little closer to the truth"

As per this article:

"Before the start of the 2020s, almost anyone who admitted to a belief in UFOs (unidentified flying objects) or extraterrestrial visitors was dismissed as a crackpot. Yet since the start of the decade, the Pentagon has repeatedly and openly acknowledged that their own pilots have spotted and recorded images of UFOs (more specifically known as UAPs, or unidentified anomalous phenomena). The so-called Pentagon UFO videos — the initial clips of which were released to the public in 2020 — showed UAPs recorded in 2004, 2014, 2015 and 2019. Ever since, respected government officials and scientists have joined ordinary UFO enthusiasts in insisting that the proverbial truth must be out there."

What follows in this article is a short, but detailed list of significant happenings in the study of UFOs in the year 2023. So, overall, some progress has been made in diminishing the UFO Weirdness Factor. But, there's more work to be done.

"'Jellyfish' UAP video reveals strange object in Iraq"

As per this article:

"UFO journalist Jeremy Corbell has released footage of what he is calling a "jellyfish" UAP spotted in Iraq in 2018.

NewsNation has not independently verified this footage.

The video was apparently taken at a U.S. joint operations base in Iraq, and according to Corbell, the object is officially designated a UAP — unknown aerial phenomenon — by the Pentagon. The footage was taken with thermographic/forward-looking infrared radar."

I suspect the Pastafarians will be all over this one! It sure looks like the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) to me.

"Kentucky Asks Aliens to Visit on Their UFOs in Fun Tourism Campaign: 'Just Don't Eat Us'"

"Lexington scientists and scholars beamed a message to Earth-sized planets 40 light years away"

As per this article:

"A Kentucky tourism board is trying to attract new visitors — extraterrestrial ones — by sending a message to other planets.

The Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau (VisitLEX) recruited local scientists and scholars to beam the message to outer space using an infrared laser. They targeted any alien lifeforms potentially living on Earth-sized planets orbiting the TRAPPIST-1 star 40 light years away.

The message, which they sent from Kentucky Horse Park with approval from the Federal Aviation Administration, included a coded bitmap image containing clues to the origin and intent of the transmission, an audio recording from blues musician Tee Dee Young and photos of Lexington."

I can't help but wonder if the residences of Roswell, New Mexico will respond to Kentucky's tourism campaign. Will Roswell, or perhaps the state of New Mexico, be tempted to make the potential lifeforms of TRAPPIST-1 a better offer than fast horses, and 101 proof Wild Turkey bourbon?

"Pentagon UFO report says most sightings 'ordinary objects' and phenomena"

As per the article:

"WASHINGTON, March 8 (Reuters) - A Pentagon report on unidentified flying objects said U.S. government investigations since the end of World War Two have found no evidence of extraterrestrial technology and had concluded that most sightings were misidentified ordinary objects and phenomena.

The report released on Friday follows on from a 2022 Pentagon announcement that its then newly formed All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) had not found any evidence to suggest that aliens have visited Earth or crash-landed here."

So, what ya gonna believe, the 'Merican gov'ment, or what ya really, really wanna believe?

To the surprise of absolutely no one, this rebuttal to Volume I of the Pentagon's UFO Report didn't take long in coming.

"Pentagon report denies UFOs are aliens. Experts accuse the government of misrepresenting the truth"

As per this article:

"A new report from the Pentagon on unidentified flying objects and unidentified anomalous phenomena has partially confirmed high-profile whistleblower allegations about planned clandestine government programs for the retrieval and reverse-engineering of non-human aircraft via private contractors.

The report has also, however, drawn sharp rebuke among academic skeptics and disclosure advocates after raising more questions and concerns than it answered. Concluding the Department of Defense's investigation into itself, the report from the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office claims to have found "no empirical evidence" of UAP, yet also declassifies the DOD origins and developmental plans for a UAP-related program called Kona Blue, that AARO says never got off the ground.
 
Disclosure advocates have since roundly criticized the report for its alleged lack of scientific rigor and failure to fully disclose firsthand accounts and significant details involving the programs mentioned in the report. The report's critics include famed Pentagon Papers lawyer Dan Shehan, former Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) director Lue Elizondo and the DOD's former top civilian intelligence official, Christopher Mellon. The 63-page report is not only notably laden with typographical errors, misplaced URLs, self-referential citations and statements misrepresenting the public conclusions of UAP scholars — but also omits a significant amount of the historically declassified data which the office was tasked with compiling in the report."

So, the UFO High Weirdness Factor lives on.

Along with the many conspiracy theories out there, UFOs are a popular 'Merican media subject for other reasons. For instance:

"Joe Rogan Suggests UFOs, Drug Use Are in the Bible"

As per this article:

"Joe Rogan discussed whether the Bible depicts UFO sightings and drug use during a recent installment of his popular podcast.

The broadcaster, whose podcast The Joe Rogan Experience is among the world's most listened-to shows, delved into the matter during a discussion with writer, producer and director David Holthouse in an episode released on April 2. Holthouse and Rogan spoke about various UFO sightings over the years, and theorized that they could be evidence of top-secret military projects or alien life forms.

Among the several ideas thrown forward, Rogan also floated the theory that UFOs have always been present on Earth, before pulling up scripture from the Bible's Old Testament Book of Ezekiel, which speaks of an encounter with unknown beings."

And, further along in this article:

"While Ezekiel said that a human-like figure high above the beings was an "appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord," Rogan and Holthouse floated the theory that perhaps this was an hallucinogenic experience.

"I mean to anybody that's done DMT [dimethyltryptamine] or ayahuasca—really tripped on psychedelics—you read that and it feels sort of familiar," Holthouse said. "The glory of God, these visions of these beings.""

And, even further along in his podcast, Rogan theorized that Moses may have been a stoner. So, never let it be said that 'Merican media doesn't cover all of the really important issues.

I guess Fox News the Ministry of Propaganda didn't want to devote all of their 'news coverage' to TFG's first criminal trail on Thursday. So, they included the following article:

"Las Vegas alien video's previously missed detail proves 'authenticity,' expert says: 'You can't deny it'"

As per this article:

"When a Las Vegas family told police they saw something "not human" in their backyard, they were not lying, a veteran crime scene recreation expert said.
 
Scott Roder, of Evidence Room Animation and Exhibits, used his expertise and motion tracking software to analyze the video of a purported UFO crash landing in Sin City in April 2023.
 
He told NewsNation they tried to "debunk" the responding officers' bodycam footage or prove something was added to the video.
 
Now, he said he is convinced there were two creatures creeping around the family's Las Vegas yard that night. "All of our results came back as authentic," Roder said. "There's no editing. That is an original video.""

If you can't trust the Ministry of Propaganda on stuff like this, who can you trust? Anyway, after spending who knows how much time getting here, from who knows where in the universe, it's perfectly understandable that alien space visitors would want visit Vegas for a little R&R. It's just too bad that, after navigating their way through the Milky Way, they couldn't find their way to the Las Vegas Strip. I'm sure any one of the many casinos there would have been more than happy to 'comp' them plenty of food, drinks, casino chips, and a luxury hotel suite for as long as they wanted to stay.
