The USS Kidd, a Navy destroyer, was using night vision cameras and spotted several mysterious flashing objects in the skies, according to footage the Pentagon revealed to The Sun.
At the time, Sen Harry Reid told Mystery Wire: "They are coming in swarms, like bees, like insects, so many of them."
Like Graves, Reid too suspects a former Cold War foe might be orchestrating these bizarre sightings.
"Always remember Russia, the Soviet Union, is run by a man who ran the KGB. They had as many as 31,000 agents at one time. So Russia is involved in this, no question about it."
One lesson of the pandemic is that humanity’s desire for normalcy is an underrated force, and there is no single mistake as common to political analysis as the constant belief that this or that event will finally change everything. If so many can deny or downplay a disease that’s killed millions, dismissing some unusual debris would be trivial.
There is a thick literature on how evidence of alien life would shake the world’s religions, but I think Brother Guy Consolmagno, director of the Vatican Observatory, is quite likely right when he suggests that many people would simply say, “of course.” The materialist worldview that positions humanity as an island of intelligence in a potentially empty cosmos — my worldview, in other words — is the aberration. Most people believe, and have always believed, that we share both the Earth and the cosmos with other beings — gods, spirits, angels, ghosts, ancestors.
Slaughter went on to make a point about the difficulty of uniting humanity that I’d been contemplating as well. “After all, we are facing the destruction of the planet as we know it and have inhabited it for millennia over a couple of decades, and that does not even unify Americans, much less people around the globe.”
If the real threat of climate change hasn’t unified countries and focused our technological and political efforts behind a common purpose, why should the more uncertain threat of aliens?
Had enough, all you Drumpf-disciples? There's plenty more in Ezra's kitchen, just in case you needed another hot dish of whup-ass. I'm just shocked Klein didn't press Pearly Pigtails for a pull-quote. Maybe she was busy getting a fresh rinse at Tavistock.
Either way, I've taken shits more trustworthy than The New York Times. And buttering their bread with the ridiculous Ezra Klein from the equally-ridiculous Vox.com just slathers on the silly. It just makes me wonder who's swallowing all this shit. I probably don't want to know.
SPACE IS AN ALTAR, SO IS THE SKY.
We all know the space program is just a very expensive ritual-performance operation, so one shouldn't be surprised that the UFO program isn't any different. In fact, arch-skeptic Jason Colavito has been doing true yeoman's work in exposing the actual cult driving the current media blitz:
The Bigelow circle, and those adjacent to them in TTSA, generated UFO hysteria by leaking alleged Pentagon UFO videos and sweet-talking their way into the New York Times through receptive journalists like John Mack acolyte Ralph Blumenthal and abduction researcher Budd Hopkins’ ex-girlfriend, UFO disclosure advocate Leslie Kean, later a member of the Bigelow Institute board of directors.
Then, the Times story generated outrage among the soft-minded in Congress, who met with TTSA officials, particularly Mellon, and became receptive to their lobbying for a UFO report. Congress duly authorized TTSA’s wish-list, and this in turn sparked more media coverage in elite publications, which carefully omitted questionable parts of UFO advocates’ pasts.
Colavito has also been harshing on the weird collaboration between Jacques Vallee and onetime Philip Corso mouthpiece Paola Harris, which even has diehard Ufologist heads scratching. Apparently this book has since been mysteriously withdrawn, but here's the press release anyhow:
Breakthrough Research Reveals the Earliest Evidence of US Government’s UFO Recovery
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 6, 2021 — Hard evidence has existed since 1945 for the actual recovery of unidentified flying craft in the United States, according to a new research book, TRINITY: The Best-Kept Secretwritten by two seasoned analysts of the global patterns behind the UFO phenomenon. Italian investigative journalist Paola Leopizzi Harris and French-born information scientist Dr. Jacques F. Vallée have teamed up to uncover the details of a New Mexico crash in 1945, fully two years before the well-known incident at Roswell and the famous sighting by pilot Kenneth Arnold in 1947.
UFOs serve as facilitators of what I label "cultural deconstruction." Recently, the word "deconstruction" has been introduced into our lexicon by philosophers and literary critics.
It refers to a process whereby long-standing and pivotal "structures" of thought and action are dismantled so that new, more fluid, and semantically fruitful modes of reflection can take hold."Deconstruction" is contrasted with "destruction" inasmuch as the latter connotes a random and unconstrained act of demolition, whereas the former suggests an aim-governed and formative sequence of changes.The work of deconstruction is not sudden, but slow and inexorable. It is more akin to a sculptor chipping away at stone so that he can craft a figure than to an iconoclast who seeks by some coup de main to obliterate outworn impressions.So far as UFOs are concerned, the deconstructive movement works upon human culture as a whole, although it may also have devastating effects at times on individual lives.
When confronted with the question of whether UFOs are simply Earth-bound vehicles or from another galaxy, Elizondo offered a third unsettling option. He started by emphasizing,
“This is important,” then explained how humans can only perceive “a narrow band” of reality. A lot of stuff (infrared, radio waves, cosmic radiation) is invisible to the human eye. There are “things that are right in front of your eyes, but you can’t see them.”
Hence, they are influenced by pity, are indignant, solicitous, and delighted, and suffer all the mutations of the human soul; and are agitated by all the ebullitions of human thought, with a similar motion of the heart, and tempest of the mind.Hence we may be confident, from the diverse forms of religious observance and the various types of sacrifice, that there are some among this number of divinities who like to be honoured by night or by day, openly or in secret, and with joyful or gloomy victims, ceremonies or rites, as for instance Egyptian divinities generally enjoy lamentations, while Greek ones usually prefer choral dances, and barbarian ones the noise of cymbals, drums or flutes.
The same Apuleius, when speaking concerning the manners of demons, said that they are agitated with the same perturbations of mind as men; that they are provoked by injuries, propitiated by services and by gifts, rejoice in honors, are delighted with a variety of sacred rites, and are annoyed if any of them be neglected.
Told you so. More:
Among other things, he also says that on them depend the divinations of augurs, soothsayers, and prophets, and the revelations of dreams, and that from them also are the miracles of the magicians.
The spatiotemporal order, whose geometry was formulated summarily by Einstein, may be little more than a single vibrational "rate" within what John Wheeler has called "superspace." Thus UFO "visitations" or intrusions may be traced back to some hyperdimensional point of origin.
Furthermore, the "visitors," rather than systematically "studying" our ways out of magisterial curiosity, may be working with methodical dispatch to make us transparently conscious of, if not to elevate us toward, the realm in which they move and have their being.
The psychedelic drug DMT can conjure powerful visions. In low doses, people often hallucinate fractal patterns, geometric shapes, and distortions in the physical space around them. But things get much stranger with higher doses.When people consume enough DMT (N,N-Dimethyltryptamine) to have a "breakthrough" experience, they often encounter beings commonly known as 'elves' that seem autonomous, existing in a reality separate from our own.
There you have it.
I absolutely think UFOs are real. I've seen them. I think a lot of the ones that aren't just misidentifications of ordinary objects are experimental aircraft, but I think a lot aren't. And I think you should stay the fuck away from them.
UFOs, like most paranormal phenomena, are usually not a harbinger of happiness and good fortune. I think they're a side effect of death, trauma and tragedy, like all other genuine paranormal events. And to obsess on them is to invite that dark energy into your life.
Gordon White once told me that that dark energy was why so many UFOlogists have such bad luck or die so young, and I've come to see the wisdom of that. Some of us just have to learn that lesson the hard way.
