Why Is Everyone Talking About UFOs?

AMAC Exclusive

UFOsSuddenly, everyone is talking about UFOs—and talking about them very seriously. It seems that almost every day, another news story is released with never-before-seen footage of “unidentified flying objects” being tracked by U.S. Military fighter jets and visible not just to the pilots but to their radar as well.

What exactly has been revealed – and what is really going on?

Perhaps the real “breaking of the dam” moment for the UFO disclosures was the 2017 New York Times article, “Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. Program.” That reporting blew the lid on an obscure, $22 million Pentagon program called the “Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program.” It began in 2007 at the urging of Nevada Senator Harry Reid. The Pentagon claimed it was shut down in 2012, but various officials in the Department of Defense have stated that it still exists. One person who has made the rounds in the media is Luis Elizondo, a former military intelligence official who ran the program. He resigned in 2017 after working on the Pentagon’s UFO program for ten years.

Elizondo has testified on multiple occasions that these objects are real and discussed the national security implications of that observation—saying it could possibly be the worst intelligence failure in our history. He is just one expert among a growing number of government insiders willing to speak candidly about the phenomenon. Another, Eric W. Davis, worked as an astrophysicist with the program. He revealed that the Pentagon examined physical materials they could neither identify nor manufacture themselves. He confirmed to the New York Times that he’d briefed defense officials about “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.”

The implications of these revelations are stunning.

The 2021 Intelligence Authorization Act, one of the last pieces of legislation signed by President Trump, required the Department of Defense to gather and disclose the data it had collected on UFOs into a report to Congress. How much of that report will be public and declassified is still unknown. The 180-day deadline Congress set is coming up next month. The anticipation of the report has led to more coverage of this previously forbidden topic in mainstream outlets and possibly to a spate of leaks from the national security bureaucracy itself.

In a Fox News appearance, former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe, far from trying to tamp down the curiosity, only upped the ante when he said the following: “When we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have been seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery, that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain, movements that are hard to replicate, that we don’t have the technology for, or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom… Usually, we have multiple sensors that are picking up these things.” In other words, this is not a case of people’s eyes playing tricks on them.

And Ratcliffe wasn’t the only former intelligence official saying things that not too long ago would have sounded crazy. Former CIA Director John Brennan said in an interview, “I think some of the phenomena we’re going to be seeing continues to be unexplained and might, in fact, be some type of phenomenon that is the result of something that we don’t yet understand and that could involve some type of activity that some might say constitutes a different form of life.”

“A different form of life”? We’re in new territory now.

You know an issue has reached the “mainstream” of public discussion when 60 Minutes is talking about it. Just a few years ago, in a 2017 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, former President George W. Bush humorously but curtly refused to divulge any of the details he knew about UFOs. In sharp contrast, perhaps representing the sea change that has since taken place, former President Obama admitted they exist and that their physical movements could not be explained.

There’s also been a steady stream of documentaries on the subject that have been recently released. The Phenomenon includes interviews with very mainstream figures like Senator Harry Reid and Governor Bill Richardson, along with others who worked in the Department of Defense.

Another was the 2017 documentary, Unacknowledged. That film was done by Dr. Steven Greer, who has been talking about UFOs and extra-terrestrials for nearly three decades and has been largely ignored by mainstream media. But with all the recent revelations, people like Dr. Greer and his “Disclosure Project” don’t seem as crazy any longer. In fact, in May 2001, he and a variety of ostensible witnesses to these programs had a nearly two-hour press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, calling for these government programs to be acknowledged and disclosed to the American public. Virtually everything Greer alleged is now being officially acknowledged by the government or spoken about in mainstream media.

But people like Greer, while claiming that UFOs and extraterrestrials exist, are also emphatic that they don’t present a risk to national security. Is he correct? There is no way of knowing. But Americans can expect to learn much more with the release of the intelligence community’s report in June.

All aliens are demonic fallen angels. Trust only in Jesus and do not take any “jabs”. The Mark of The Beast is coming. The jab is the anti-christ’s precursor to implement his demonic mark.

I’m forced to wonder if your sentiments regarding flu shots, polio and measles vaccines are similar. Thank God we’re not still living in a world that would look like what you proffer with this post; we’d still be in the Dark Ages watching Bubonic Plague wipe out mankind and torturing people to death trying to exorcise demons. You really should consider seeking out mental health treatment, no kidding.

Honestly, I love the idea of UFOs and if they have been around for awhile; maybe just maybe they are harmless. In the other hand; if the government is trying to put this information out now, we have to be in high alert and not to lose track of what it is really important for the American people. Politicians always use detractors to move forward their disastrous ideas wasting trillions of $ that we do not have.
At this moment, the alien that concerns me is the one that comes from the southern border. We all know Biden is importing crime and illegal activities. Our country is in crisis, and we all are going to pay for the bad decisions of the Democratic party and some Republicans.

The only “aliens” we have tobe concerned about are those currently pouring into this country illegaly, preparing to derail our elections and consume the lion’s share of our economy in entitlements. There’s nothing like the feeling one gets from watching increasingly large amounts of our incomes, and those that will be generated by our kids and grand kids for generations to come, being handed over to people who are neither legitimately naturalized citizens, have any vested loyalty to this country or produce anything of benefit to anyone else in the community. The truth is, the vast majority of these folks are not productive contributors to the economy; that is a myth. The vast majority of illegal aliens are not suddenly going to become law abiding, productive citizens when they come into this country breaking federal law the very second they step foot across our border. They will continue to demonstrate disregard for our laws and societal norms while they do nothing but consume and propagate. THAT is the demonstrable historical fact. The people running this country into the ground right now out of Washington DC are lying, communist trash who intend to subjugate the American people and this is one of the main strategies for affecting that nefarious scheme, but it doesn’t have a thing to do with flying saucers. For Pete’s sake….

The groups you’re identifying typically have the distinction of being organized by communist ideologues like Patrice Collurs and Bernie Mann or are George Soros-paid thugs, as opposed to being fleeced by drug cartels to smuggle them across the border.
Man, the people of this country better wake up or we’re not going to have a country left to wake up to. Flying saucers?! Who on earth cares?! We’ve got some real problems we’d better start paying serious attention to or we’re all going to end up dealing with a world no one wants to live in anymore.

it is another way to keep the people fearful. The government had us all worked up about the virus and they saw how people panicked about it! Why not start-up UFO’s again? The masses will believe any lie the media puts out there, even if the truth is being told otherwise.

I wouldn’t believe Brennan if he said the suns rises in the East. He voted for a Communist at the height of the Cold War and ran the phony hit job on Trump!!

John Brennan is the champion liar of all time. Witness his own admission he purposely lied about his knowledge of Trumps’ guilt on TV during the impeachment trial at the same time he was admitting he had no proof of it in classified closed door committee hearings where he was under oath to tell the truth.

Can you spell, “diversion”…….the more discussion about UFO’s the less about really important things…like the military being hijacked with “wokeness”….the budget being slashed and the capacity of our military being scaled down…..the failures of leadership to deal with “co-ed” soldiers and sailors….and a multitude of other serious things that can be smoke-screened with UFO’s. It’s a game.

I agree 100% with you D.P. Especially the part about our military being hijacked. I read an article last week about the Air Force wanting to eliminate the F-22 Raptor, and already retire the first three dozen F-35’s that they recently took control of. Congress is saying that they are too expensive and no longer needed. This all coming when the Military is talking about how we need to be preparing for adversaries such as China and Russia because they believe we will be facing one or both in the near future…I also read where the US Marine Corp was downsizing to become leaner and to prepare for conflict with China in the Pacific. Unfortunately to get leaner and meaner they’ve done away with several of their Rifle Battalion’s, Air Wings, and ALL of their Tank Battalion’s.

Right on! Use the media to distract the public about the incompetence in the managing of our Commie-leaning DemocRat Party.

I remember a WW2 Vet at the VFW, recalling being on a battle ship somewhere in the pacific and having one of these things come up out of the ocean along side the ship he said was damn near the size of the ship, I still remember my Dad talking about the things showing up around Norfolk navel air station, so their nothing new, my Pop’s was a E9 USN so his word is not disputable ~

I think all the talk is more for distraction than anything else. UFO’s have been sighted for a very long time, reported by those who saw them, and they were laughed at. I know, I watched one with my family in Chicago, July 1962, as it was chased by three jets flying formation. It quickly outdistanced them and disappeared. Radios announced all the calls they had received from viewers, but no one believed anyone. The same thing was seen by my friend’s mother a week earlier and I joked about it…until I saw it, then I called to apologize. I am not saying it was ET or Michael Rennie and Bort; I just know it was something way beyond what normally flew in our air space. They do not frighten me, but it is nice to know that others will not be laughed at when they admit to seeing one.

Obama started this UFO discussion which is only an attempt to distract people from the Arizona recounts which are revealing the DNC cheated like crazy in the last election to put Biden in office.

I’m certainly ecstatic that creepyjoe is forcing me to stay locked in and masked up, because he KNOWS the science that nobody else can explain of “flighting saurcers.”. I’m even getting comfortable living under my bed (where the CCPVID-19 CAN’T get me), but my bet is still on “nothing to see here, folks,” for the AZ, GA, PA, MN audits’ final results. And Dominions can only be hacked by Republicans that don’t have THE admin password, but can be DNC electioneers with user password.

Horse Feathers!! Regardless of the validity of the discussion on UFO’s. this is nothing more than a smoke screen to divert the public’s attention from the real issues of corruption in the current administration.

“But people like Greer, while claiming that UFOs and extraterrestrials exist, are also emphatic that they don’t present a risk to national security. Is he correct?”

From a scientific perspective, any civilization able to develop craft, either of a manned or of a robotic type, capable of interstellar space travel would be several hundred, if not potentially thousands, of years in advance of us technologically in so many areas. As such. their only interest in a primitive species like humanity would likely be of an anthropological interest. Simple observation and recording of a primitive species in its natural habitat. Exactly what our own anthropologists have been doing with more primitive societies that they have encountered for a long time.

Could a much more advanced race pose a national security threat, if they actually wanted to do us harm? Of course they would, as we would have little to no capability to effectively engage them successfully from a military perspective. Several years back there was a well thought out multi-part special put together by the scientific community laying out what would happen, under various scenarios, should we ever encounter an alien race with hostile intentions against earth. The bottom line is humanity would lose in virtually every scenario.
