When this article is published, the US Congress UFO hearing will have been held. It is the second hearing of this type in US history, but to be more precise, it is the first UFO hearing aired live on the Internet. The political significance is that, unlike the first hearing in 1968, this event commands the attention not only of the US public, but the whole world. The six million dollar question is: What if the Pentagon admits there is an alien technology? How would governments of other countries react to this? Would our religious beliefs be seriously challenged by the existence of alien civilizations? Is God an alien? Are earthlings ready to face the Truth?

As a cynical veteran journalist who has covered so many mysteries that remained unresolved, I do not expect the answers to the above questions will be revealed in this hearing. Congressman Andre Carson presides over the hearing. “The American people expect and deserve their leaders in government and intelligence seriously evaluate and respond to any potential national security risks—especially those we do not fully understand,” he said. Since this is understood as a national security issue, two military officers, namely, Ronald Moultrie from the Pentagon, and Scott Bray, deputy director of naval intelligence, are invited to testify.
Can two officials of the middle ranks in the military be expected to unveil the whole UFO mysteries in the past six decades, which included flying disks, mutilated cattle, undersea unidentified objects, alien abductions, Area 51, etc.? Of course not. However, even if the Truth is not revealed yet, at least the UFO phenomenon is no longer a fringe subject. Those who pursue the subject seriously will not be ridiculed and marginalized anymore — hopefully.

For those officials such as Luis Alizondo, this hearing confirms that their whistleblowing work is appreciated and their reputation rehabilitated; for those journalists such as Leslie Kean, whose whole professional career have been spent on pursuing this subject, this hearing justifies their efforts. However, there are those who are not so fortunate. Stanton Friedman, the nuclear physicist who tracked UFOs, passed away in 2019. I think he would be very happy to see this hearing if he is alive. Would he review the authenticity of Majestic 12 documents if he had the chance?
We should also remember Dr. James E. McDonald (1920-71), who played a key role in Congressional UFO hearings in 1968. His conviction that UFOs represented a physical phenomenon of scientific importance and the hypothesis of extraterrestrial visitation should be taken seriously would lead to his downfall and suicide. He was a martyr of academic UFO science.
It was a historical tragedy that the first wave of UFO sightings after the Second World War coincided with the beginning of Cold War. Two famous incidents in 1947 heralded the post-war UFO craze, namely, Kenneth Arnold, a private pilot, encountering with nine “flying saucers” on June 24th and, of course, the crash on July 5th at Corona, New Mexico, or the so-called “Roswell Incident”. Suddenly, UFO sightings became a national phenomenon, which, in the eyes of government officials, might evolved into mass hysteria.
In 1948, U.S. Air Force General Nathan Twining, head of the Air Technical Service Command, established Project SIGN (original name: Project SAUCER) to collect, collate, evaluate, and distribute within the government all information relating to such sightings, on the premise that UFOs might be real and of national security concern. The irony is that after 74 years we come back in full circle to where we were at the beginning.
In the heat of the Cold War, the Air Force and CIA suspected UFOs might be the secret weapon of Soviet Union. In fact, in recent years the author Annie Jacobsen made the unlikely suggestion that the disk that crashed in Roswell was indeed sent by Stalin. Paranoia, however, gave way to secrecy. After Project SIGN, there was Project GRUDGE (1949), which was intended to alleviate public anxiety rather investigate the phenomenon. So there was a foregone conclusion before the project even started: UFOs were unreal. Anyone who saw UFOs was crazy; anyone who talked about UFOs was “crank”. The phenomenon, however, persisted. So Project Blue Book came into existence in 1952.
Project Blue Book was under the capable leadership of Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, who officially coined the name “Unidentified Flying Objects”. Thousands of UFO reports were collected, analysed, and filed. It was also in this project that the astronomer and scientific consultant Dr. J Allen Hynek created the categorization of what is later known as “Close Encounters”. For some unknown reason, Captain Ruppelt was temporarily transferred to another assignment in February 1953. When he returned to the project, he found his staff heavily reduced.
Another strange turn is that in December 1953, Joint Army-Navy-Air Force Regulation number 146 “criminalized” discussion of classified reports of UFO by military personnel with unauthorized persons. Violators face up to two year in prison and/or fines up to $10,000. Project Blue Book, from then on, was about public opinion control. The “hidden agenda” was to debunk UFO rather than investigation. This had continued until 2017, when official videos of UFO by Air Force fighter pilots were leaked to news media.
Why this secrecy? Why public opinion of UFOs had to be controlled? Why was UFO research labelled “pseudoscience”? Both Dr. James McDonald and Dr. Allen Hynek knew that even if 99 percent cases of UFO sightings were fake, the remaining one percent had to be investigated seriously. However, only Dr. McDonald made the quixotic effort of going against the official agenda. The price he paid for this was destruction of his academic career and marriage, and eventually his own life.
The lesson of this history is: What we need today is not only the investigation of recent UFO sightings, but also a complete review of all the important cases of UFO encounters since 1947. Most of all, we need to know who ordered the cover-ups.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
