Has the US Government been covering up the existence of UFOs?

March 30, 2021 5 min read

We believe that the United States Government has covered up the existence of UFOs.

My Family used to sit on the roofs of their houses and watch atomic explosions go off in the distance. I would get told stories of secret government programs, and the weird lights seen in the High Desert.

It was here, when I was in fifth grade, where my uncle Joe told me the story about Travis Walton being abducted by aliens. And that while everyone around us was saying he had an insane acid trip – he didn’t. My uncle Joe swore that, not only was it true but that the US government threatened him and his family to keep quiet.

He warned me, be very careful of who I tell people about his experience.

It would be 8 years later when the movieFire in the Sky came out. 

There I sat Spellbound… “wow! My uncle Joe knows him,” I thought and “THIS is what he was telling me.”

Everything reminded me of Mingus mountain, the night sky, and an insane bolt of cold ran down my spine.

I don’t know about you but growing up with uncles who swore to the existence of, and knew people who personally dealt with, these kinds of encounters instilled in me a questioning nature. Whether they were just tall-tales concocted to frighten a boy around the campfire or the reminiscences of a real alien encounter, it runs in my nature to question everything, something that I still hold dear today. 

 UFO’s, the 1950’s and the CIA

Kept Highly Classified for years,The Durant Report andThe Robertson Panel Report both dealt with research, sightings, personal testimonies and scientific analysis. In both reports, the US Government did, in fact, come to the conclusion that “it was probable that aliens did exist and that while most sightings were due to “Natural Phenomenon,” a high percentage of them – especially from Military and Experienced Pilots – could not be explained.

Operation Blue Book Was Really a Cover Up

The US National Archives contains documents on the investigation and review of UFO phenomena going back decades:  https://www.archives.gov/research/military/air-force/ufos

From 1947 to 1969, a total of12,618 sightings were reported to Project BLUE BOOK. Of these, 701 remain "Unidentified." The project was headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, whose personnel no longer receive, document or investigate UFO reports.

The decision to discontinue investigations into UFO phenomena was based on an evaluation of a report prepared by the University of Colorado entitled, "Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects.” 

Their Review ofProject Blue Book included the following criticisms:

"Blue Book's explanations of UFO reports were not universally accepted, however, and critics — including some scientists — suggested that Project Blue Book performed questionable research or, worse, was perpetratingcover up.[11] This criticism grew especially strong and widespread in the 1960s.

Take, for example, the many mostly nighttime UFO reports from the midwestern and southeastern United States in the summer of 1965: Witnesses inTexas reported "multicolored lights" and large aerial objects shaped likeeggs or diamonds.[11] The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported thatTinker Air Force Base (nearOklahoma City) had tracked up to four UFOs simultaneously, and that several of them had descended very rapidly: from about 22000 feet to about 4000 feet in just a few seconds,[11] an action well beyond the capabilities of conventional aircraft of the era. John Shockley, ameteorologist fromWichita, Kansas, reported that, using the state Weather Bureauradar, he tracked a number of odd aerial objects flying at altitudes between about 6000 and 9000 feet.[11] These and other reports received wide publicity.

Project Blue Book officially determined[11] the witnesses had mistakenJupiter or brightstars (such asRigel orBetelgeuse) for something else.

Blue Book's explanation was widely criticized as inaccurate. Robert Riser, director of the Oklahoma Science and Art FoundationPlanetarium offered a strongly worded rebuke of Project Blue Book that was widely circulated: "That is as far from the truth as you can get. These stars andplanets are on the opposite side of the earth from Oklahoma City at this time of year. TheAir Force must have had its star finder upside-down during August."[11]

A newspaper editorial from the Richmond News Leader opined that "Attempts to dismiss the reported sightings under the rationale as exhibited by Project Bluebook [sic] won't solve the mystery ... and serve only to heighten the suspicion that there's something out there that the air force doesn't want us to know about",[11] while a Wichita-basedUPI reporter noted that "Ordinary radar does not pick up planets and stars."[11]

Another case that Blue Book's critics seized upon was the so-calledPortage County UFO Chase, which began at about 5.00am, nearRavenna, Ohio on April 17, 1966. Police officers Dale Spaur and Wilbur Neff spotted what they described as a disc-shaped, silvery object with a bright light emanating from its underside, at about 1000 feet in altitude.[11] They began following the object (which they reported sometimes descended as low as 50 feet), and police from several other jurisdictions were involved in the pursuit. The chase ended about 30 minutes later nearFreedom, Pennsylvania, some 85 miles away.

The UFO chase made national news, and the police submitted detailed reports to Blue Book. Five days later, following brief interviews with only one of the police officers (but none of the other ground witnesses), Blue Book's director, MajorHector Quintanilla, announced their conclusions: The police (one of them an Air Force gunner during theKorean War) had first chased acommunications satellite, then the planet Venus.

This conclusion was widely derided,[11] and police officers strenuously rejected it. In his dissenting conclusion, Hynek described Blue Book's conclusions as absurd: in their reports, several of the police had unknowingly described the moon, Venus and the UFO, though they unknowingly described Venus as a bright "star" very near the moon. Ohio CongressmanWilliam Stanton said that "The Air Force has suffered a great loss of prestige in this community ... Once people entrusted with the public welfare no longer think the people can handle the truth, then the people, in return, will no longer trust the government."

In April 2003, the USAF publicly indicated that there were no immediate plans to re-establish any official government UFO study programs.

However, in December 2017 it was disclosed that a new secret UFO study titled theAdvanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) was funded at over 20 million dollars a year from 2007 to 2012

Government officials, including Senators are openly speaking about it

Marco Rubio wasn’t caught on a hot mic when he recently expressed his concern about unidentified flying objects buzzing over militarybases – and he's on board with the government getting to the bottom of the phonomena.

"For me, there’s stuff flying over military installations and no one knows what it is, and it isn’t ours," Rubio said. "If stuff’s flying over the top of your most sensitive installations, and it’s not ours, and no one knows whose it is – you should find out who it is, and tell us."

So what about you and your own experiences?  Did you have cool Uncles describing the Universe to you as well?  Have you witnessed aliens or UFO’s?  Tell us about it!

Stay “weird,” my friends!

In West Virginia, the Mothman is a supernatural creature reportedly seen in the Point Pleasant area from November 15, 1966 to December 15, 1967. The first newspaper report was published in the Point Pleasant Register, dated November 16, 1966, titled "Couples See Man-Sized Bird ... Creature ... Something". Mothman is often seen JUST before Disaster strikes.

So, we have covered the historical context of the Anunnaki, whom many believe are the ‘Bloodlines’ of gods.  Before you roll your eyes, realize that the French President, Emmanuel Macron, himself, has stated that he is a descendant of the god Jupiter of the Roman & Greek who, in turn, are tied to the Anunnaki.  (*trust me it gets a lot weirder when you start digging)
