UFO’s Are Real – But Can You Handle the Truth?


UFO’s Are Real! The DoD, Harry Reid, a Navy pilot, even Tom DeLonge all say so.

This has been the It Topic in the paranormal community since the ground-breaking New York Times article on December 16th. I give you the CliffsNotes here.

Pretty cool, right? It’s huge! But…

There’s so much more to the UFO subject than just this sudden flurry of media attention. There is no quick, easily digestible sound byte that will summarize the last 70 years.

That’s right. The modern UFO age began in 1947 with the Maury Island incident, Kenneth Arnold’s Rainier sighting and of course – Roswell. That’s 70 years of secrecy and cover-up to work through. It’s gonna take a sec for some people to process. Especially if you’re just starting to explore the UFO community.

I had a conversation with an acquaintance about the NYT’s piece, and it was enlightening. It profoundly illustrated for me how much work we in the UFO community have to do to make this topic readily accessible to the mainstream public.

This guy is intelligent, though with a deplorable tendency toward pontification and talking over people. However, even with those caveats, he’s also struck me as open-minded, so when I asked if he’d read the article or heard about the Pentagon’s release his answer surprised me.

First, he insisted, there wasn’t any evidence (Um, excuse me?) He man-splained in some detail from the We Have Bigger Issues to Discuss, and Why Would Aliens Bother Coming Here scripts. And finished with this shocker: “But I haven’t read the article.”

He then professed to be “very well read on the subject” but also “very skeptical.” <<<Except, how well read are you if you haven’t read this? Or use those words “no evidence?”>>> We need skeptics. We do! Too often though, this takes the form of denying any and every claim because it’s not reproducible in a lab, or written up in a peer-reviewed journal.

Skepticism is necessary in this field, but it’s more common cousin, cynicism is stifling. Cynics already have their mind made up that this subject is nonsense. They find data points that support their views, and exclude everything else.


My friend was cynical. Because his reaction when I told him that the Pentagon ran this program, that they determined these things were not of this Earth, and had recovered materials, was to shut down and talk over me. His eyes glazed, and he even got defensive. “I can’t have this discussion because I haven’t read the article.” He heard me, but he didn’t want to accept that there had been official acknowledgment. He even said “I’m sure they didn’t say UFO’s exist” after stating he hadn’t read the article.

The news is a paradigm shift. It is going to get really uncomfortable for a lot of people, as it did for this guy. Almost every day since the 16th the online outlets have run a UFO-related story. Sometimes two.

I’m not talking about some local Gazette reporting on the farmer who saw a flying disc out in his field. I mean The Big Guys, the Main Stream Media:  New York Times, Newsweek, NPR, CNN, MSNBC, Fox and more. Don’t take my word for it – go Google it for yourself.

Remember, prior to the 16th there might have been a single story in the MSM every few weeks to months, with the obligatory wink-and-nudge. These pieces were treated as fluff, and were accompanied by humor or even outright derision. The pervasive attitude in the news and journalistic media has been universally negative, and the whole UFO subject has been ignored, belittled and marginalized. This has been by design, and our current societal perceptions of UFO’s is the result of decades of propaganda. More on that at another time.

If you’re new to the UFO world, here’s something you need to know:  The UFO community is huge, diverse, and can be vicious in defense of individual pet theories. There is some stuff that you’d think was swiped from a science fiction novel. It is, from an outside observer’s viewpoint, full of contradictory, fantastical claims and there is little cohesion within the community. Quite the opposite, there’s often outright warfare between factions. This too, is by design, and again, more on that later.

It is however, also full of wonderful, open, genuine people who are striving to bring about real disclosure. They aren’t hard to find either. There are trustworthy sources, there are outlets that bring real, verifiable evidence. There are whistleblowers, insiders, and journalists who bring this fascinating phenomenon to the wider world through blogs and podcasts.

Most important, a new call for unity among the UFO community is rising. To put differences aside, to work together, to bring the truth out to the wider public.

That’s the absolute heart of the matter – We want the truth. We deserve the truth. Those of us who’ve been in this world, we know. We absolutely know. The UFO phenomena is real. But it’s about more than just extraterrestrials in metal ships zooming through our skies. This is where it gets a little sticky, because not everyone in the field wants to acknowledge that there is more than just nuts and bolts spaceships.

There are key facts, that must be acknowledged to form true unity in the community. These include the following:

  • Hard evidence exists – recorded data, recovered material, physical effects, etc., and more.
  • There are spiritual and paranormal aspects associated with UFO phenomena.
  • Perception of UFO’s is dependent on the individual. Personal accounts will therefore naturally be tempered by individual filters, and discrepancies will result. These should be honored as personal, but perhaps not absolute truths.
  • There has been active disinformation planted within the UFO community to sow dissention, ridicule, and division by our government and intelligence agencies.

If we start here, acknowledging and agreeing to these basics, we can build from there. Unity and working together will be essential to getting national, even worldwide acknowledgement of the UFO phenomenon. Maybe you only want to look at the spiritual side, or only the physical, that’s up to you. But some recognition of all these aspects will be essential, because they are all part of the whole.

We need to be gentle with those just arriving at the party, we will need to be gentle with those who are having experiences they don’t understand, and we will need to be gentle with ourselves as new truths dispel old.

These are exciting times. Let’s enjoy the ride, support each other and bring real disclosure to the world.

“UFO’s Are Real,” Said the Pentagon


Did you hear about this? Just last week, The New York Times, Newsweek, CNN, NPR, all reported that the Department of Defense has investigated UFO’s. Not your tin-foil-hat-donning uncle. Not that weird lady up the street with chickens who grows all her own veggies.

The Main Stream Media.

Which yeah, admittedly, I have trust issues with. I kinda trust the bloggers and channelers more than the MSM. But that’s for another time.

There’s suddenly a flurry of UFO related articles. The UFO community is all aflutter – some with joy, some in denial. Amid all the emerging details, one small, but crucial piece is almost lost in the crowd.

The Department of Defense’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program investigated UFO’s. They used fancy language for it – unidentified aerial phenomena, unconventional aerospace-related findings, unusual aerial systems – but it boils down to this irrefutable fact:

The Department of Defense has officially acknowledged a program designed to look for UFO’s, stating it ran from 2007 to about 2012, and cost roughly $22 million.

Let that sink in for just a minute. Just that simple fact.

Because no matter what the nay-sayers may spew, the DoD silently, secretly investigated UFO’s. They consistently denied it. They did their best to discredit it. But they did it.

This is fucking huge.

Disclosure is such a loaded word. Ask any random UFO researchers what they think Disclosure involves, and you’ll probably get multiple answers.

“Aliens gotta land on the White House lawn!”

“The President’s gonna come out and announce it.”

While the methods of how, and timing of when, has been hotly debated for some time, there is one constant – official acknowledgment.

This is it folks.


They have said, officially that UFO’s exist. At the conclusion of the program, the overall consensus was that these things aren’t from around here. And… while the DoD says AATIP ended in 2012, the guy that ran the program from an office in the Pentagon says differently. He has said there is a successor to his position, but did not name this person.

That’s Disclosure. It might not be how you imagined it. It might not be how you wanted it. But it’s real. Our world is going to change. Hang on, it’s about to get very interesting.

Because here’s a few truths that you may not have considered, that go right along with the recent news.

To all those who said “There’s no such thing as UFO’s.” Clearly incorrect. Volumes of accounts, video, eyewitness, physical traces, physical effects, all documented; and the conclusion – no country on Earth has this technology. This is going to be very difficult truth for some people to accept. We need to be gentle and understanding with those who struggle with this new knowledge.

To the claim, “There’s no evidence.” Yes, there is. The NY Times article describes video and audio recordings, eye-witness testimony from military pilots, even “metal alloys and other materials … recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena.” These need to be studied openly, and by as many different labs and universities as possible around the world. Transparency with results is essential.

To the scoffers who sneered, “They could never keep a secret that big.” Yes, they have. Demonstrably so. Harry Reid said it was paid for with black money, and they didn’t want a lot of discussion about it. They hid this for years, deliberately. The reason it’s coming out is because the guy who ran it got an attack of conscience.

Also, you gotta ask, “What else have they hidden from us? What else have they lied about?” This is just the tip of the iceberg. This is just the beginning.

What else will come to light?

Oh yeah, there’s issues. Of course there are. There are plenty out there who will put the negative spin to this, and have. It will be diminished, degraded, attacked – it already has been. And it will be celebrated, praised, and defended – this too is happening right now.

It should be. It should be talked about from every angle. Because it’s been kept in the dark for far too long.

Don’t just take my word for it – read about it yourself. Google it. Do your own research and use your own discernment. What they are has yet to be determined, but we’ve hit a huge milestone – open acknowledgement that UFO’s are real.

World Disclosure Day


Did you miss it? July 8 is World Disclosure Day!

Most, if not all, UFO enthusiasts, researchers, and listeners of late night talk radio have heard the term Disclosure. It refers generally to the public acknowledgement of an extraterrestrial presence on Earth by the government.

The idea of Disclosure is super sexy. The press crowding in for the presidential briefing – Lights! Camera! Aliens! Whee! Media Circus! Discussions can get very heated even amongst UFO enthusiasts about Disclosure. Will it happen? When? This year? Never? Have They been hiding what they know? Do They know anything at all?

“Oooo! She’s cray-cray! Talking about aliens and conspiracies.” Insert twirling finger next to your ear here.

Don’t believe me? That’s okay, I want you to think for yourself. This post isn’t about convincing you, or providing absolute proof. It’s about opening up your mind.

It’s time to start seriously considering the UFO question. If you’re worried about looking silly to your neighbor, chances are they’re already ahead of you. Multiple polls show that most Americans believe in intelligent extraterrestrial life; those numbers range from 56% to over 70%, and almost half believe aliens have visited the Earth at some point in time. Not feeling so crazy now, are you?

Don't worry, you're in good company.
Don’t worry, you’re in good company.

Acknowledging the reality of intelligent alien life doesn’t require mystical belief. According to NASA, we will have proof of alien life within the next 20 years. The search for planets capable of sustaining life outside our solar system has proven fruitful beyond even the most hardened sci-fi fan’s wildest dreams. Finding life even closer to home – Mars, the moons of Saturn and Jupiter – becomes increasingly more likely the more we learn about them.

There are then, three basic premises to consider.

  • IF – Intelligent extraterrestrial life is visiting Earth,
  • AND – Earth governments are aware of the fact,
  • THEN – A conspiracy to hide that fact from the general population is in place.

Let’s look at each of these statements individually.

Intelligent extraterrestrial life is visiting the Earth.

At this point the number of eyewitness testimonials is uncountable, going back as far as humankind has been recording history.

  • Egytian, Sumerian, Indian texts, even the Bible all have passages describing lights, fire and vehicles in the sky that transport people and gods.
  • Depictions of aerial phenomena, from cave art to to appearances in the earliest photographs, to YouTube today attest to their presence.
  • Reports to MUFON and other UFO reporting groups continue to accumulate with no sign of slowing down.
  • First-hand accounts of people taken into extraterrestrial craft; the alien abduction phenomena.

Is every picture, report or video real? Each one will have it’s believers and deniers. Some will be obvious, some will not stand up to forensic scrutiny. But some will, and some have. It is statistically impossible for every case to be fake. Project Bluebook alone, widely considered to be more of a PR mission than a true investigation, had 701 cases it could not explain.

These cases continue to mystify:

  • The Rendlesham Forest Incident
  • Roswell
  • Travis Walton



“It only takes one white crow to prove not all crows are black.”

“Why don’t we have physical proof if they’ve landed?” Take a look at the links at the end of my post for information on the thousands of cases where physical traces have been found. Burn marks, impressions of landing gear, even changes to plant life in the area have all been studied.

Earth governments are aware of the fact.

Multiple governments have released documents showing that persistent, on-going investigations and documentation are taking place. France, the U.K., Canada, New Zealand even the U.S. have released declassified documents detailing UFO encounters from civilian, military and intelligence individuals and organizations.

Paul Hellyer, former Minister of Defense for Canada has publicly stated that governments are aware of, and in contact with extraterrestrials. Astronauts have described seeing extraterrestrial craft and beings. Nick Pope with the U.K. Ministry of Defense has frequently spoken about government involvement. Deathbed confessions by scientists who formerly worked within the military-industrial complex attest to government involvement in retrieval of crashed vehicles, bodies of aliens and then back-engineering the recovered technology.

A conspiracy to hide that fact from the general population is in place.

Governments hide things all the time.

In Roswell, the ‘flying disk’ became a ‘weather balloon’ on July 8, 1947, and a decades-long cover-up began.

“Where are the whistleblowers?” NASA employees, physicists, astronauts, military pilots, politicians, engineers, government employees… and the list keeps growing! Lots and lots of people are talking, are telling their stories, but the mainstream media is not giving them the airtime. It’s left to independent researchers, bloggers and the Internet to disperse their messages, and the word is getting out there.

“Why cover it up at all?” In 1960, NASA commissioned a study, carried out by the Brookings Institution, on “Peaceful Space Activities.” While it did not specifically state that information about extraterrestrial intelligent life should be withheld, the study did point out that within our own history, contact between races with widely divergent technological capabilities did not go so well for the less-technically endowed.

That would be us.

The Brookings Report is frequently cited as the justification for continuing the cover-up that began in 1947.

There is at this point a preponderance of evidence on the side of a government conspiracy to hide UFO information from the public. The argument could easily be made that the slow trickle of documents and admissions is a form of slow disclosure – little bits of information released with little to no fanfare that gradually percolate into general knowledge. Programs such as Ancient Aliens, and Aliens:  The Definitive Guide are tailor made to bring the idea of alien visitation into everyone’s home.

Take your time. Peruse through the links below. Did you find something that surprised you?

Weird Weekend – How Much Weirdness?

Can one person take?  Am I the only one who thinks that spending $733 million dollars on political TV shows just how weird priorities have become?


Only a few more days….


Until then, I offer up this more conventional weirdness.  UFO’s caught on tape.


Weird Weekend – If Aliens Are Real…

Why don’t they just land on the White House lawn and introduce themselves?


Why don’t they let someone get a real picture/video instead of those grainy, jumpy images?


I’ve already shared my thoughts on whether or not life exists out there in our galaxy, or even our own solar system.


To discuss what might be going on in the head of an intelligent alien being, what might motivate them is something science fiction writers have been doing for decades.  What we are finding as our knowledge base expands is that, more and more often than not, science fiction is becoming science fact.  Want an example?  Just take out your cell phone.  It’s a communicator and minicomputer you can carry in your purse or pocket.  Before my smart phone, my celly had to be the clamshell kind.  Why?  Because flipping that little gizmo open was my own personal Star Trek moment, each and every time.


Today, Hub and I were catching up on episodes of The Clone Wars animated series.  In Season 5, Anakin and Obi Wan, with Anakin’s padawan Ahsoka travel to Onderon to aid rebels who are fighting the Separatist controlled government of the system.  The Jedi must keep their assistance hidden from the Separatists so as not to draw the attention of Count Dooku and thus escalate the fighting.  The Jedi are there strictly to train the rebels and stay in the background, not to fight the rebel’s battles for them.



Why don’t the Jedi simply step up and clean out the Separatists on Onderon?  Anakin, Obi Wan and Ahsoka could have easily wiped up the mess on their own.  Two reasons, first they don’t want the Separatists to know the Jedi council is involved.  But also, the Jedi know the Onderon people must fight their own battles, and win their system back for themselves.  They are willing to provide support and education, but not publicly.


So I have to ask the what if question.  What if the reason aliens don’t land and introduce themselves is that they don’t want to have their presence publicly acknowledged?  What do you think?  Could the reasons be benevolent, like the Jedi?  Or, conversely, what if it’s like the movie They Live?


What do you think?  Or perhaps the biggest question is, why would they bother to come here at all?


I love hearing from you!  Please share your thoughts!




Weird Weekends Return!

Credit where credit is due: http://www.allnewsweb.com/

Our world is a lot stranger than you might think.  Ghosts, UFO’s, Bigfoot, Atlantis, the Loch Ness Monster and more have been a part of our society’s framework for decades.  But have you ever noticed that when any of these extra-normal topics surface, people tend to lower their voices, as if they were talking about something shameful?  There’s still a social stigma attached to ‘those types’ of discussions.  You can find on the interweb as many who disbelieve and debunk as those who have eyewitness, firsthand, or photographic evidence.  My goal is to try and break up that stigma.

What is the truth?  That is something we all have to decide for ourselves.  No, not every sighting, picture or video is real.  Obviously.  But with the body of digital data and eyewitness events growing by leaps and bounds, is right to just dismiss everything out of hand?  I’d like to offer up that we should instead be looking at and considering this rapidly growing body of data.  Science can hold the key, but science does not have all the information.  We are not reaching for the peak of all we can know, rather it is an ever-expanding pool.

Personally, I have firsthand knowledge that there is a larger reality than is currently accepted, because I can see and talk with those who live on the ‘other side.’  With Weird Weekends, I want to bring to you the strange, the out-there, the unbelievable, and the mystical.  I hope you will look at these with a fresh and open eye.

Can we talk about aliens?  It’s one of my favorite subjects.  When I was a kid in grade school learning about the solar system, I was taught that ours is the only planet with water, with life.  I was even told that it was highly likely that Earth was the only planet with any life.  That life was so incredibly complex, and the conditions on Earth just so unique that the odds were against it developing anywhere else.  I was told there was no way to travel between the stars because of the incomprehensible distance separating them.  There would be no light- or warp speed.  Childhood dreams crushed under the vicious bootheel of scientific reality.  Sigh.

Not really.  The dreams just matured.

We have managed to lob satellites to fly by all the planets and moons circling our little sun.  We’ve even dropped landers on some of them.  Guess what our little robot friends are finding?

This is not Earth, this is Mars. Pretty, isn’t it?
Credit where credit is due: http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2009/jan/27/mars-snow-space-technology-nasa

Like Curiosity on the Martian surface.  Just this week, it sent back pictures of an ancient streambed, verifying that at one time water flowed freely on Mars.  Satellite images returned from orbit show what is likely seasonal flows of water on the surface.  And as we already know, where there’s water, there’s life.  I think it’s pretty cool that within my lifetime we’ll likely have verification of life on other planets.  That’s pretty incredible when you think about it; in just 3 decades we’ve gone from being certain we were alone, to postulating life on some of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.

We are only one system on the outer rim of a galaxy comprised of billions of these systems.  The Kepler Mission is finding that planets circle nearly every star it looks at, and Kepler is only looking at one tiny segment of the sky.  It is only a short time until they find Earth’s twin circling a distant sun.  It is not just likely, but probable that advanced, intelligent life has evolved ‘out there’ in the cosmos.  The next question then is, have they ever come here?

That’s just one of many ‘best of’ ufo videos out there.  I particularly like the footage of the discs in the sun.  Are they real?  You decide.  Some of the clips are more compelling than others.

Why would they come here?  Why not land and introduce themselves?  Seems kind of stupid to fly a bajillion miles across interstellar space to just draw a design in the grass and fly back.  Right?

Credit where credit is due: http://mysteriesandsecrets.blogspot.com/2012/06/crop-circles.html

Why not?  It’s not as if we don’t do the exact same thing, right here on Earth.  We don’t ask permission of the wolves, or sharks or elephants when we radio tag them to track their movements.  We don’t even try and communicate with fellow denizens of our own planet that use sounds to communicate, understand grammar and syntax, and whose own vocalizations and behaviors demonstrate name recognition.  (Dolphins, in case you were wondering.)  It is entirely possible that to a visiting alien species, trying to talk to a human would be like trying to discuss physics with your cat.

It is interesting that most Americans believe in UFO’s today.

What do you think?  Are UFO’s all some crazy person’s delusion?  Or is the Earth is being visited?  Could we have been visited in our past?

Speak up!  Don’t be shy!  I really love to hear your thoughts, so tell my why you agree, or disagree.  All viewpoints are welcome.
