MUFON conference to probe alleged secret U.S. space program

The Mutual UFO Network’s 2017 International UFO Symposium, July 20-23 in Las Vegas, will focus on the possible existence of a secret U.S. space program.

Bravo to MUFON for giving proper attention to this subject.

Is ufology finally starting to pay attention?

Such a conspiracy would be orders of magnitude beyond Watergate, an ongoing decades-long cabal calling into question our very system of government: a program so secret its existence is shielded from Congress, the president, and the people.

It would be the most profound military conspiracy since the Manhattan Project.

Unfortunately, as always, MUFON continues to be obsessed with the ET hypothesis, the notion of “reverse engineered” alien technology and other rubbish …

Here’s a news flash: the human race doesn’t need assistance from space aliens to invent paradigm-changing technologies. One only needs to recall: the microchip, lasers, fiber optics, nuclear weapons, nuclear energy, microwave ovens, medical imaging systems, robotics …

Unless you think aliens were behind these modern marvels as well.


Springtime and renewal: the Rendlesham Forest cover-up …


Well, it’s officially spring, so it’s time to renew our ongoing and futile quest for those final reports from the Ministry of Defence regarding the Rendlesham Forest incident.

Last year, when their release was delayed yet again, we were told that they would be transferred to The National Archives sometime this year, spring at the earliest. So I recently checked and was told by the archives that it is working with the MoD but that there is not a definitive date for the transfer of these files.

Boy, considering the fact that there’s nothing to this whole thing – at least according to officialdom – they sure are taking their time.

It’s been, what, almost two years since these records were supposed to be released?

I think it’s fair to say this is a cover-up. And when we finally do receive the docs … much will be covered up, to be sure.

What could possibly justify these delays?  The military bases where this historic encounter took place are now closed. The Cold War is over. My speculation is that it was not ET. Rather, it was likely the U.S. testing its above-top-secret field-propulsion platform, and the Brits understand this. Hence, the repeated assertions by the authorities that the events surrounding Rendlesham Forest represent “no threat” to national security, and the need for continued subterfuge.

Also, please see my take on The Halt Perspective and other things Rendlesham Forest at

The Halt Perspective is a worthwhile addition to anyone’s UFO book collection, but don’t expect a compelling read.

It’s like a 770-page scrapbook of factoids, letters, reports, transcriptions, old news articles, photos and illustrations, but nonetheless a worthwhile reference book for those of us who are obsessed with the confounding, latter-day saga of unexplained aerial phenomena.

The review includes a “deconstructing commentary,” which proposes some plausible explanations touching on:

  • How Sgt. Penniston’s story smacks of classic disinformation.
  • How that creepy winking eye in the forest was probably a 3-D holographic display, psyops to confuse and distract.
  • And the likelihood that the UFOs were not ET, but an above-top-secret U.S. surveillance platforms based on electric-field propulsion technology.

Alas, the strange saga that is the Rendlesham Forest incident is not an isolated event. Rather, it fits neatly into a series of like encounters going back 40 years or longer.

But, hey, it’s all in Flying Saucers.

Jimmy Kimmel needles Bush 43 about UFOs


Jimmy Kimmel is at it again, pestering a former president about UFOs, and you gotta love it!

You also have to find Dubya’s cryptic response sort of telling … from the linked account.

“This is a question that I think is very important to me and very important to the country,” Kimmel said. “When you were in office — and I don’t know when this happened or if it happened — did you go through the secret files; the UFO documents?” The audience broke into laughter.

“Maybe,” Bush said. “I’m not telling you nothing.”

Bush is not the first president or politician to refuse any form of disclosure on Kimmel’s show. He’s also pressed Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, who made a joke of it on Kimmel, but later told GQ, “I gotta tell you, it’s a little disappointing. People always ask me about Roswell and the aliens and UFOs, and it turns out the stuff going on that’s top secret isn’t near as exciting as you’d expect.”

That would come as disappointing to disclosure advocates, who have been struggling to pressure the government into releasing anything they know about UFOs or extraterrestrials. Many, including the Disclosure Project, which pushed for congressional hearings in the 90s, believe the government is hiding advanced energy technology, including propulsion systems reverse-engineered from extraterrestrial vessels. While some are just curious what the government is hiding, others hope eventual disclosure could lead to environmental and global political revolution.

While Bush continued the tight-lipped tradition, UFO hunters may find some paradoxical comfort in how GWB’s assessment differed from Obama’s. “Are there really great secrets that you know that you can’t share with people?” Kimmel asked.

“Yeah,” Bush said.
