UFOs: Road to a 'false-flag' alien invasion?

Could 'hoax' plot be patently obvious?

In April 2020 the United States Department of Defence authorised the release of three videos taken by US Navy pilots that seem to depict airborne, heat-emitting objects with no visible wings, fuselage or exhaust, performing in ways no “known” aircraft could achieve.

It is the first time the Pentagon has come clean on the videos, which had already been leaked online and gained international attention after the New York Times published them as part of a December 2017 expose on the Pentagon’s secret UFO research, the so-called Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP).

Although it doesn’t use the terms “unidentified flying object” or “UFO” to describe them it does acknowledge the phenomena observed in the three grainy monochrome infrared videos, taken in November 2004 and January 2015, can be characterised as “unidentified”.

The released videos show US aircraft being easily outmanoeuvred by strange objects capable of speeds and aerobatics allegedly far beyond the scope of current military aircraft that are related to USS Nimitz and USS Theodore Roosevelt UFO incidents. The US Navy has confirmed the authenticity of the videos, stating only that they depict “unidentified aerial phenomena”.

The AATIP was allegedly headed by Luis Elizondo, who has claimed to have been instrumental in the 2017 leaks, and was a secret “investigatory” effort funded by the US Government set up in 2007 to study UFO phenomena. It was made public after the New York Times report in December 2017, five years after the US Defence Department claims it had ceased operations because its appropriations ran out.

But Elizondo continued to work for the Defence Department until October 2017 when he resigned to join To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, a UFO research collective co-founded by former Blink 182 guitarist Tom DeLonge, with partners Jim Semivan and Harold Puthoff.

Not long after taking up his role as director of government programs and services with To The Stars Academy (TTSA), Elizondo conducted an interview with journalist George Knapp suggesting there was a lot more to reveal on the subject of UFO disclosure.

AATIP appears to have been the latest in a succession of Defence Department “special” operations allegedly set up to investigate UFO reports, although many believe their role was to cover up the phenomena and debunk alleged sightings.

Project Blue Book is probably the most widely known studies conducted by the United States Air Force (USAF). Following projects Sign (1947) and Grudge (1949), Blue Book was launched in 1952 with the purpose of scientifically analysing UFO-related data and determining if UFOs were a threat to national security.

Thousands of reports were collected, analysed and filed, but following the 1968 Condon Report, which concluded there was nothing anomalous about UFOs, and a later review of it by the National Academy of Sciences, an order was given to close the study in December 1969... with all activity under its auspices officially ending on 19 January 1970.

By that time Project Blue Book had collected 12,618 UFO reports and concluded that most of them were misidentifications of natural phenomena or conventional aircraft. According to the National Reconnaissance Office a number of the reports could be explained by flights of the formerly secret U2 and A12 planes.

The UFO reports were archived and are available under the Freedom of Information Act, but names and other personal information of all witnesses have been redacted. A small percentage of UFO reports were classified as unexplained, even after stringent analysis.

An Air Force memorandum dated 20 October 1969 and signed by Brigadier General C H Bolander states that after Blue Book’s demise “reports of UFOs which could affect national security” would “continue to be handled through the standard Air Force procedure designed for this purpose”.

Freedom of Information Act requests show the US Air Force continued to catalogue and track UFO sightings, particularly a series of UFO encounters from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s that occurred at military facilities with nuclear weapons. Many of these officially-released documents depart drastically from the bureaucratic wording of the normal government paperwork, making obvious the sense of "terror" these UFO incidents inspired in many USAF personnel.

With a growing public clamour for more openness on the UFO subject through such organisations as the Centre for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI) and The Disclosure Project, championed by former traumatologist Dr Steven Greer, reports of the phenomena have burgeoned since Blue Book’s closure, culminating in the recent Pentagon disclosures.

Elizondo says he resigned from the Pentagon in October 2017 in protest over government secrecy and opposition to the investigation. But could To The Stars Academy (TTSA) simply represent a paradigm shift on UFO disclosure by the Pentagon following the demise of AATIP?

A “public benefit corporation”, TTSA has ex-CIA senior intelligence officer Semivan and former Defence Department physicist and research scientist Puthoff as its co-founders, along with chairman DeLonge.

Both Puthoff and Semivan are also on the board with financial specialist J Christopher Mizer, while Elizondo, the chairman’s sister Kari DeLonge and former Lockheed Martin Skunk Works director for advanced programs Steve Justice are company executives. The TTSA advisory board is also littered with former intelligence and military personnel.

Through a contract awarded to Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS), AATIP generated a 494-page report documenting alleged worldwide UFO sightings over several decades and according to one former BAASS contractor the report was only a sample of the material provided to the Defence Intelligence Agency.

In addition to annual programme updates about “UAP” or anomalous phenomena, the programme also funded and published 38 studies covering a range of advanced theoretical aerospace topics ranging from “Detection and High Resolution Tracking of Vehicles at Hypersonic Velocities” to “Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions”.

TTSA is composed of aerospace, science and entertainment divisions… and has even struck a deal with the US Army regarding the study of purported “extraterrestrial discoveries”.

The deal is understood to have been signed last year in the wake of reports the group had obtained evidence related to the famous 1947 Roswell UFO incident in New Mexico.

The meta-materials in question are believed to be engineered composites that have electrical properties not present in any naturally occurring form, which give them a number of unique qualities including the ability to affect the transmission of electromagnetic waves.

TTSA first announced the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) last October, with an earlier company press release revealing the samples include a piece of micron-layered bismuth/magnesium-zinc metal; six pieces of bismuth/magnesium-zinc metal; a piece of aluminium; and a round black and silver metal flake.

The history of the samples is convoluted, with the late Art Bell, a long-time host of paranormal radio programme Coast to Coast AM, reported to have originally acquired them from an anonymous source who claimed his grandfather had been in an unspecified branch of the US military.

The objects eventually landed in DeLonge’s hands, who passed them on to TTSA by way of Linda Moulton Howe, an investigative journalist who claimed a number of labs and corporations, including the Army’s Redstone Arsenal, had attempted to look into them but could neither track their origins nor reproduce them.

Under their agreement, military scientists will analyse the materials collected by TTSA to help “characterise” them and will provide TTSA laboratories with expertise and other support resources.

According to a statement on TTSA’s website Dr Joseph Cannon, of US Army Futures Command, said: “Our partnership with TTSA serves as an exciting, non-traditional source for novel materials and transformational technologies.”

In addition to aerospace research, TTSA’s first major “entertainment” project was the documentary series Unidentified, originally made for the History channel, currently running in the UK on Blaze as part of the channel’s “UFO week”.

Unidentified features both Elizondo and DeLonge investigating many of the cases explored by the AATIP, with its former chief regularly stressing the possible threat these UFO phenomena pose to national security because of their preponderance over classified military sites where nuclear weapons have been housed.

The series also contains testimony to the fact the alleged UFO sightings could be connected to secret military technology, but throughout the programmes there is an emphasis of the danger these incidents could pose because of the sensitive nature of where many of the sightings have taken place.

Greer, who heads up CSETI and The Disclosure Project has campaigned for almost three decades for greater openness on UFOs from the government and has produced several documentaries outlining his views on the subject.

In the documentaries Sirius; Unacknowledged; and Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind; Greer and other whistleblowers talk about Defence Department manipulation of the media regarding UFOs, with moles in senior positions in many mainstream agencies, and the possibility that a “false-flag” conspiracy exists within the defence establishment to simulate an alien invasion to move the planet towards a new world order run by the “industrial-military complex”.

Greer’s view is that this “invasion hoax” has been planned over several decades, with reverse-engineered technology based on alien craft now at a stage where the industrial-military complex can begin to set the plan in motion.

With retrieved wreckage and complete extraterrestrial craft to examine, plus access to much of the work on anti-gravity technology conducted by the Nazis before the end of World War II, over the past 70 years, would it be such a stretch of the imagination for Greer to be correct?

Given how technology has changed since the 1940s, one would expect the Pentagon to already know all about the properties of any materials allegedly retrieved from New Mexico in 1947.

If work on that technology was taking place it would be understandable for the military to deny all knowledge of it, but once development is complete and the industrial-military complex has the equipment to carry out an invasion hoax, the seeds of that threat need to have been already indelibly printed in mankind’s consciousness.

Was the 2017 leak to the New York Times contrived? Is TTSA a front for exploiting some of the assets acquired over the last seven decades and spreading disinformation about the threat posed by UFOs?

It’s interesting to note that in 2018 the US Navy was granted a patent for an advanced aircraft resembling a UFO.

The military inventors filed the patent for the highly unusual craft in 2016, with its plans describing methods of reducing the vehicle’s mass through the generation of gravity waves, allegedly first observed after being produced when two black holes collided that same year.

This means the aircraft uses complex technology to reduce its mass and thereby lessen inertia, its resistance to motion, so that it can zoom along at high velocities. The craft described in the patent features a cavity-wall filled with gas, which is then made to vibrate using powerful electromagnetic waves that create a vacuum around the craft allowing it to propel itself at vast speeds. The UFO-style ship can be used in water, air or even space.

“It is possible to envision a hybrid aerospace/undersea craft (HAUC), which due to the physical mechanisms enabled with the inertial mass reduction device, can function as a submersible craft capable of extreme underwater speeds… and enhanced stealth capabilities,” the patent states. “This hybrid craft would move with great ease through the air/space/water mediums, by being enclosed in a vacuum plasma bubble/sheath.”

Although the US Navy has been granted the patent it doesn’t necessarily mean the craft has been built and tested… although it is further evidence of the military’s knowledge of such technology.

A Metro report on the patent asked former Ministry of Defence UFO investigator Nick Pope if he saw any similarities between the designs and the 2004 Nimitz incident.

“A hybrid craft, capable of flying both in the air and underwater, is uncannily similar to what was reported in the USS Nimitz incident from 2004,” Pope said. “There was a similar incident of a UFO flying underwater in Puerto Rico in 2013. The possible connection between the USS Nimitz incident and this patent is intriguing, and it’s interesting that the US Navy seems to be the link here.

“It’s possible that the patent is inspired by the incident and is part of an attempt to work out the technology behind the objects that were chased by the Navy F18s.”

Pope said the key question was how the plans fitted in with wider AATIP activity. Apparently the patent’s author Salvatore Cezar Pais mentions Puthoff, who was a key figure in the organisation and commissioned the 38 papers exploring the “exotic” technologies used by the Defence Intelligence Agency during briefings filed with the US Congress.

“The papers that got media attention related to anti-gravity, invisibility cloaking, warp drive and wormholes, but a key point is that many of the papers relate to exotic propulsion systems – not just the technology that would enable us to build a faster aircraft, drone or missile, but the technology that we’d need for interstellar travel,” Pope said.

Given the secretive nature of the subject, it’s unlikely the truth about UFO technology will ever be fully revealed… but ample evidence exists to suggest the industrial-military complex has, or is developing, technology that would enable it to simulate an invasion. Perhaps many of the sightings over the past 70 years have been the precursor towards such an event?
