Las Vegas Now
A secret Pentagon program to study unknown aerial objects — otherwise known as UFOs — may not be finished after all.
The civilian contractor for the program was Bigelow Aerospace, based in Las Vegas. Their contract ended in 2012, but the man who managed the program inside the Pentagon thinks it is still operating.
His name is Luis Elizondo, and most of us first heard his name last October when he stood on a stage with rock star Tom DeLonge and other government insiders.
Elizondo said he had spent 10 years as the head of a secret study of unidentified aerial objects. He also was instrumental in the release of official UFO videos recorded by military pilots.
The I-Team sat down with him earlier this week to ask, among other things, why the Pentagon considered UFOs to be a potential threat.
“Is it a threat? And if it’s a threat, is it the Russians or Chinese? These are the normal questions, whether dealing with terrorism or weapons of mass destruction or you’d ask for any national security issue de jour, and yet here we are with something that…..”
Reporter George Knapp: “Doesn’t fit.”
Luis Elizondo: “That doesn’t fit, doesn’t fit.”
Elizondo has spent most of his adult life protecting his country, on active duty in combat hotspots, handling terrorists at Guantanamo, and at the Pentagon, where he was the point man for AATIP, the Advanced Aerial Threat Identification Program. That program collected and analyzed information about encounters between the U.S. military and spectacular but unknown technology, what some would call UFOs.
“My job in the government at the time with AATIP was two-fold, to determine what it was and how it worked, not really focusing on who was behind the steering wheel or whatever. If we can answer the first two things, everything else we will be able to explain later,” Elizondo said.
He says that even his immediate supervisor in the Pentagon was unaware of the program. Only a small list of people scattered in different branches and agencies had a need to know. The word threat is built into the name of AATIP, and even though the unidentified craft being reported by pilots and others didn’t launch an Independence Day type attack on humanity or zap major cities with death rays, the defense department had to consider the possibilities.
The so-called Tic Tac UFO, for instance, was detected over several days in 2004 by personnel with the U.S.S. Nimitz battle group off the coast of San Diego. It didn’t attack, but it demonstrated vast superiority over America’s most advanced defense systems.
“I think if you were to take this issue that we’ve seen and we have something coming into our air space that we control that has a Russian star on the tail or a North Korean tail number, I think people would have a much different reaction and response because there’s something we can identify and say, this is in our air space and shouldn’t be here,” Elizondo said. “You DOD, you CIA, you DHS, have the responsibility of protecting us, how did this happen? And yet, here we have the same scenario but there are no flags or numbers on the tail. In fact, there may not even be a tail on some of these things, and yet it’s crickets. Nobody wants to have that conversation.”
In 2007, a small group of senators led by Nevada’s Harry Reid, initiated a program to change the culture surrounding UFO reports. Reid was motivated, in part, because of classified reports he’d read about UFO encounters over U.S. nuclear bases in which atomic weapons were somehow disabled.
“The communications in the missile defense installation was shut down. It didn’t happen once. It happened more than once,” former Senator Harry Reid said. “We have things in ships at sea, things in the water. What is that?”
Reid says he was also concerned that if adversaries like Russia or China could master the technology displayed by the Tic Tac or other UFOs, the U.S. military would be at a great disadvantage. Elizondo agrees.
“I think it is ridiculous to presume that other nations that are very sophisticated, very capable, aren’t looking at this as well. I cannot go into detail about why I think that, but I am very confident they are aware,” Elizondo said.
The program set up by the Pentagon to assist AATIP was housed at Bigelow Aerospace in southern Nevada. The contract ended in 2012, but Elizondo believes some version of the study is ongoing. Elizondo thinks it makes sense to study Tic Tacs and other UFOs and compares it to how you might react if someone pierced your home security system.
“The first thing you do, you come down your stairs as you look in your living room, you see muddy boot prints in your living room on the carpet that weren’t there the night before. Nothing has been taken out of your house, nothing has been disturbed, no one has been harmed and yet every night, despite you locking the front door, closing the windows and turning on the alarm, there are muddy boot prints that keep showing up on your carpet. now, is that a threat?”
So, what about those Pentagon videos? Are they legit? And when will we get to see more of them released?
George Knapp was born in Woodbury, N.J., and raised mostly in Northern California. He graduated from high school in Stockton, Calif.; earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from West Georgia College; and later earned a master’s degree in communications from the University of the Pacific, where he also taught speech and debate and served as director of forensics. George also taught speech at California Polytechnic University, coached the debate team at the University of California at Berkeley and taught broadcast journalism at UNLV.
Along the way, George also worked as a hod carrier, farm laborer, carpenter’s assistant and house painter. He moved to Las Vegas in 1979 and landed a job as a taxi driver. Later, he worked at KLVX-TV Channel 10 as a part-time studio cameraman and production assistant. KLAS-TV hired him in 1981 as a general assignment reporter. George also has co-anchored various newscasts for KLAS-TV.
Since 1995, George has been the chief reporter on Channel 8’s I-Team investigative unit. In that capacity, he has earned five regional Edward R. Murrow awards and a national Edward R. Murrow award for his investigative stories on the voter registration fraud in the Clark County election of 2004.
Knapp has won the prestigious Peabody Award twice and 19 Emmy Awards. Nine times, he has won the Mark Twain Award for best news writing from the Associated Press. And in 1990, his series about UFOs was selected by United Press International as best in the nation for Individual Achievement by a Journalist.
Philadelphia witness had good view of UFO
A Pennsylvania witness at Philadelphia reported watching a hovering orb that eventually flew away, according to testimony in Case 95886 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was in South Philadelphia at 11 p.m. on October 26, 2018.
“I was holding my three-month-old son and looking out my north facing third floor windows,” the witness stated. “There is an airport nearby and I see loads of helicopters and drones, but this was different than anything I have seen in the seven years that I have lived here.”
The witness said he sees many objects from the master bedroom window on the third floor.
“I have five windows that face north, south, and west and I have no curtains since I like to see the city views. What I saw was a large, bright red, glowing orb about 11-30 feet in diameter that hovered erratically and changed colors every 30 to 60 seconds. It changed from completely red to completely green then completely blue. It was red most of the time and I don’t think it was a sequential pattern I believe it was random because I saw more red and green than blue.”
The witness said the orb was flying east, and then it would hover and stay completely still.
“It then changed direction and flew west very quickly and disappeared. The total viewing was about five minutes. I’ve scoured the news and have seen no other accounts of this which is perplexing because there should be multiple witnesses. South Philly is a busy area on a Friday night because of the cheesesteak places that tourists line up at. I’m hoping someone else out there saw this as well.”
MUFON Pennsylvania Field Investigator William Morse closed this case as an Unknown-Other.
Ecto-1 Returns in Teaser for Secret Ghostbusters Movie
Trailer teases the return of the Ghostbusters with a malfunctioning proton pack and a rusting Ecto-1.
A new Ghostbusters is coming in 2020! It was announced this week with the arrival of this short but effective teaser trailer. It’s an eerie night and spine-tingling music from the original Ghostbusters score is playing as the camera moves past a fence dripping with ectoplasm into an creepy barn where we hear the sound of proton pack that won’t start. And then the wind blows up a tarp to reveal a rusting Ecto-1.
The new film is being directed and co-written by Jason Reitman, the son of Ivan Reitman who directed the original Ghostbusters.
“I’ve always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a 6-year-old visiting the set. I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans,” Reitman told Entertainment Weekly. “This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ’80s happened in the ’80s, and this is set in the present day.”
For those of us who grew up in the 80s, the 1984 Ghostbusters film was probably one of our earliest introductions to the occult, inspiring a lifetime of obsession. Sure, I was disappointed when I learned Tobin’s Spirit Guide wasn’t real, but my hope was renewed when I discovered real occult texts. And of course Ecto-1, a 1959 Cadillac built by the Miller-Meteor company, kick-started a love for hearses.
Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis?
I probably had not even heard of these things before Ghostbusters.
The new Ghostbusters is set for a 2020 release.
The BBC cuts an interview after an astrophysicist assures that the space radio signals are of extraterrestrial origin
It seems that the mysterious repetitive radio signals sent from a distant galaxy are giving a lot to talk about. As we already published in the Esoteric and Paranormal World, a team of Canadian scientists detected 13 new rapid radio bursts (FRBs) from deep space, in a discovery that could change our understanding of the universe.
Astronomers detected repetitive FRBs for the second time in history, which experts believe could be a breakthrough by offering scientific evidence of advanced extraterrestrial life. The researchers detailed their latest finding in the journal Nature last Wednesday. Rapid radio bursts are short pulses of radio waves that are supposed to originate from beyond our galaxy, probably billions of light years away from the Milky Way. In radio astronomy, an FRB is what is known as a high-energy astrophysical phenomenon of unknown origin, which manifests itself as a transient radio pulse, which usually lasts a few milliseconds.
But what makes these FRBs so important is that they were first discovered in 2007 when a signal was detected in radio astronomy data collected in 2001. Last summer, for three weeks, the team found another 13 signals using the Experiment radio telescope Canadian Mapping for Hydrogen Intensity (CHIME, for its acronym in English). Dr. Ingrid Stairs, Chime astrophysicist, and professor at the University of British Columbia said that, until now, only one FRB was known that was repeated so knowing that there are others suggests there could be more and could be used to understand these cosmic enigmas, where they are from and what causes them.
And it is this last point that has caused controversy in the scientific community, with some suggesting that they are of natural origin and others claiming that they are clear evidence of the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial life in the universe. But it seems that you do not want to give voice or vote to scientists who point to this last possibility. And it has been demonstrated during a BBC interview when the presenter interrupted her at the moment when an astrophysicist assured that the rapid bursts of radio detected from deep space could be signs of an advanced extraterrestrial civilization.
Hiding the truth
A BBC interview with astrophysicist Elizabeth Pearson was interrupted after she suggested that the radio signals detected beyond the Milky Way are of extraterrestrial origin.
“Then, with these rapid bursts of radio, particularly this one that is repeated, is the second time we’ve found it, we hope we can understand a little better what these things are, ” Dr. Pearson told the BBC.
“Hopefully, when looking at the new rapid bursts of radio, we could establish if it is one of these phenomena. One of the slightly clearer theories is that it could be an advanced extraterrestrial civilization, but it is more a case that we can not rule out what we think it is. “
And at that moment, the news anchor played down the last comment of astrophysics.
“Well, you know, obviously, you say that’s one of the most outstanding theories, that’s the one that’s in everyone’s ears, that’s the headline, thank you,” Joanna Gosling said.
Astrophysics seemed to want to add something to the presenter’s comment and said before being interrupted: “Yes, it’s …”
And mysteriously the audio was cut and removed the image of astrophysics, to the surprise of the viewers.
“Oh, we lost her. But anyway that’s fine, maybe, this is evidence of aliens. We’ll see, “ Gosling added.
And this curious incident has caused all kinds of reactions on social networks. Conspiracy theorists have publicly denounced that the BBC is part of the media manipulated to hide the truth and in this case, they did not expect astrophysics to comment so freely on the theory that the strange fast radio bursts are of extraterrestrial origin.
Also, that astrophysicist Elizabeth Pearson is not the only one to believe that its origin is artificial. Professor Avid Loeb, from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in the United States, has been assuring for some time that it is extraterrestrial technology. Although there would be two possibilities, which is really a signal sent intentionally, and the other that suggests that these signals are repetitions of extraterrestrial technology, as energy sails to propel huge ships. However, for some reason that we do not know, it does not matter if the extraterrestrial theory is spread, much less that it is the scientists who do it.
Are the media covering up the truth? Maybe the aliens are among us, infiltrated in society?
