Project Blue Book | Unidentified Flying Objects

Project Blue Book | Unidentified Flying Objects 100
If you ever wondered if the show, “Project Blue Book”, premiering on the 8th of January 2019 is a work of fiction, let us quickly assure you that it is not. In fact, what this show is based on is a true story of a government project that was carefully swept under the project. The project, as you might well know, is the Project Blue Book.

What you may think you know about this project might not be completely true. However, we shall now try to delve into what really happened with this investigation, what its mission is, and why it had to be aborted and kept classified for a long time.

To go back to the beginning, we have to head as far back as 1947. This was just as the cold war was starting. There was suspicion in the air, and there were many reasons for this.

So, when a businessman and pilot known as Kenneth Arnold made a report on June 24, 1947, it quickly raised the fever.

Kenneth’s report was clear and direct: He had observed nine flat disc-like aircraft near Mt. Rainer, Washington. They were flying at incredibly high speed.

His description of them was so vivid and the press, who quickly dubbed those aircrafts as “flying saucers,” was the beginning of thousands of other similar reports.

In fact, between that first incident in 1947 and when Project Blue Book was terminated in 1969, a total of 12, 618 sightings of strange things moving in the sky had been reported across the United States.

When the Project Blue Book was carefully shut down, the U.S. Air Force gave a number of grounds that have since been its official stand:

  • No UFO reported, investigated, and evaluated by the Air Force has ever given any indication of threat to our national security;
  • There has been no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air Force that sightings categorized as “unidentified” represent technological developments or principles beyond the range of present-day scientific knowledge; and
  • There has been no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as “unidentified” are extraterrestrial vehicles.

This is part of the official statement, but a lot more was involved in the case of Project Blue Book. So, why would the U.S. Air Force do that?

Was Project Blue Book a failure or was it just a fluke? There are a number of things to note.

Keep in mind that the U.S Air Force is the agency in charge of the surety of the airspace all over the nation.

It was at the beginning of the cold war when reports started rolling in. The initial reaction was a bit frantic at first. There were suspicions about which country may be responsible.

Many suspected that these strange aircrafts could be from the Soviet Union. Others wondered if it was another country.

With the suspicion, The Air Force quickly launched what was then known as Project Sign. This would be followed by other investigations, Project Blue Book is one of them.

Project Sign

Project Sign was the initial response, but it only lasted for just over a year. At first, it appeared as if The U.S. Air Force were trying to actually discover what the unidentified flying objects were. Project Sign was actually taken somewhat seriously.

According to the report of a captain of the U.S Air Force, Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, the intelligence specialists at the Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC) were so confident of getting answers to the UFO problem within a year at most.

(By the way, you might want to keep the name of Captain Edward J. Ruppelt in mind, because he would later become a Project Blue Book director and the author of a book titled “The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects”).

Back to Project Sign, the UFO problem that the intelligence specialists at ATIC were looking to solve had nothing to do with if these UFOs existed or not.

It was more about where it is from. Could it be the Russians at work or should we really gaze into space for answers? Could these UFOs have come from some other planet?

Their findings would cause an internal split inside the group. There were those who believed that the UFOs were indeed from outside the planet Earth, while there were others who maintained that it couldn’t be true.

By the time the Project Sign ended, the official results were inconclusive. In their report, the flying saucers were neither confirmed nor denied.

But that really wasn’t the end of it. A document was authored by the project in 1948, and the document was called “The Estimate of the Situation”.

This document was sent straight up the command chain of the U.S. Air Force. Ruppelt revealed that the majority of the specialists who worked on Project Sign were particularly impressed by one of the many reports of sightings.

This particular report was the Chiles-Whitted UFO Encounter on the 24th of July, 1948. This incident involved two pilots whose Douglas DC-3 airliner was almost hit by a torpedo-shaped UFO. Most of the investigators actually believed this incident was true.

The conclusion was that the level of technology that must have gone into such an aircraft could not have been realistic for either the U.S. or the U.S.S.R. The only logical explanation was that it was from another planet. This belief was stated clearly in the document.

News article on report by C.S. Chiles and J.B. Whitted from Blue Book files. From 1951 through 1953 Captain Edward J. Ruppelt was chief of Project Blue Book — the official Air Force investigation into the UFO phenomenon.

But guess what, the document was rejected by the Air Force for lack of physical evidence. What’s more, all copies were ordered to be destroyed. The U.S. Air Force would later deny the existence of this document, even resisting any attempt to use the Freedom of Information Act in getting a hold of it.

However, Ruppelt and several other sources confirmed the existence of this document. One of these sources was Dr. Allen Hynek. Dr. Hynek was a scientific consultant and UFO skeptic brought in to work on both Project Sign and Project Blue Book. His role and shocking transformation would be discussed shortly.

But Project Sign wasn’t shut down to start Project Blue Book. There was another project in-between. This project is called Project Grudge.

Project Grudge

Project Grudge is a fine example of how to appear productive when, in reality, you are busy doing nothing. Project Grudge was a total fluke set up with one single aim: debunk all reports and find natural explanations for those you can’t.

Needless to say, many of those “explanations” were completely illogical. Investigations were rarely conducted since the conclusion is already known. Any little investigation done was tailored to lead right back to the preconceived answer.

This continued until the UFO sighting reported around Fort Monmouth in New Jersey in September of 1951. A number of pilots and radar operators observed these fast-moving and highly maneuverable aircraft that are shaped like discs. It took a direct order by the head of Air Force intelligence at the Pentagon, Major General Charles P. Cabell, to swing the investigators into action.

When a meeting was called, it became clear that the investigators at Project Grudge had been taking all reports as a huge joke. This realization made General Charles P. Cabell push for the dissolution of Project Grudge and its replacement by Project Blue Book, the project intended to take the sightings really seriously.

Project Blue Book

With huge determination, Captain Edward J. Ruppelt (Remember him from Project Sign?) was put in charge of Project Blue Book, and work commenced immediately. It was Ruppelt that created the name Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) to replace the press-publicized “flying saucer.” Data were gathered and placed under high scrutiny.

When the results of the study were released, it shocked the skeptics. A clean 22% of the 3200 reports studied were labeled as unknown. That means they couldn’t be explained away. That is huge, and the report shook the beliefs of many.

One of such people is the Astronomer, Dr. Allen Hynek, who was hired as a scientific consultant during Project Sign and Also for Project Blue Book. He was a straight UFO skeptic who worked at the time in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Ohio State.

He had treated the whole thing has an utterly ridiculous fad that would go away soon enough. He would try debunking any of the sightings, claiming that there was surely a natural explanation. Sometimes, he would even find a ridiculous explanation, like one of his declarations in 1966 that left many people laughing.

After observing and conducting research for years with no easy explanation for some of what he personally saw and heard, Dr. Allen Hynek would later conclude that, indeed, these were not fads. The sightings of UFO were real and they point to something outside this planet.

This led him to become a passionate believer in what we now know as UFOs. He founded the Center for UFO Studies, wrote several books and was a technical advisor for “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” an iconic film about UFOs released in 1977.

So, you would expect the Project Blue Book to gain international interest, right?

Well, think again. What followed was as strange as the UFO sightings themselves.

In 1953, Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, the director that had worked hard since the previous year to get out the report suddenly left the project. What was left of Project Blue Book was a shadow of itself, a device used for public relations.

Earlier in 1952, a panel of scientists had been convened by the CIA. After meeting for 12 hours over a period of 4 days, the reports worked on by Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, Dr. Allen Hynek, and many others were brushed under the carpet.

The idea was that, if given enough time, all those sightings could be explained away.

The motion of the meeting was switched to calming down the public. A public relations campaign was proposed to debunk and remove the “aura of mystery” from the UFOs, all in an attempt to take away the public’s attention.

Project Blue Book was stripped of most of its power and resources and was transformed into a debunking device. Of course, this frustrated Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, thus making him to leave.

When Major Robert J. Friend tried to resuscitate the project years later, he got little cooperation and even more limited budget.

Everything went downhill from there. In 1969, Project Blue Book was terminated and its file declassified.

But the damage has been done. Many reports have been debunked by the project after Rupelt left. Other documents related to UFO which were not held by the Project Blue Book still remain classified, despite pressures and lawsuits from private UFO groups.

And the public? Well, the public has moved on.

The later mission of Project Blue Book seemed to work more than the former.

While the U.S. Air Force would secretly continue their investigation, the public stance still remains.

Once again, the public is kept in the dark.

Juno probe recorded a radio signal source in orbit of Jupiter which may be an ancient interplanetary station

Juno, is NASA’s unmanned interplanetary station launched on August 5, 2011 to explore Jupiter, the second project under the New Frontiers program. The spacecraft entered the polar orbit of the gas giant on July 5, 2016. The purpose of the mission was to study the gravitational and magnetic fields of Jupiter, as well as to test the hypothesis that Jupiter has a solid core.

Instruments of the Juno interplanetary probe, which is exploring Jupiter, detected a nearby signal at a frequency of about 6.5 megahertz, which is in the range of high-frequency radio waves. On Earth, they are used for ionospheric communications and over-the-horizon radar, but in Jupiter’s orbit, their source is supposedly natural.

Such signals have been known for a long time: they are called decametric radio emission. However, for the first time, a spacecraft recorded them in the immediate vicinity of the place of origin. In fact, the probe flew through the source of the radio burst, near Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon.

Juno’s sensors observed the phenomenon for about five seconds, and then it merged with the background radiation. Given the speed of the probe – about 50 kilometers per second – we can conclude that the area of ​​space where the signal is generated is about 250 kilometers across.

As NASA explains, the found radio emission with a frequency of 10-40 MHz creates a stream of electrons rotating in Jupiter’s magnetic field. They generate a radio signal as a result of a process of a certain cyclotron maser instability. 

NASA was so terribly interested in this cyclotron instability that the Juno mission was decided to be extended indefinitely, and now the bright adepts are busy building a new ship, the money for which they managed to get in a record short time.

The intrigue is that the conspiracy theorists knew about this radiation back in October 2020, although NASA only spoke about it now. The story began there with the appearance of the following message on one of the network boards:

Juno probe recorded a radio signal source in orbit of Jupiter which may be an ancient interplanetary station 121

According to this modest text, it was written as if by a CIA officer who went on the run in the fall of 2020. The reason for this was the cleansing of a team of agents who cleared and hid information about the discovery in orbit of Ganymede of an object similar to an interplanetary space station, created using some advanced technology. 

It was opened by the same “Juno”, which on June 6, 2020 discovered a strange radio signal, which NASA reports only now. The signal was very powerful and went in a narrow beam, which does not happen in nature, so the satellite was slowed down and at the next revolution turned to look – where is the beam coming from? 

The signal came from an object in the form of a torus, inside which a sphere about 1000 feet in diameter was suspended. The sphere was of a substance resembling metal, glowing with a purple light with a green tint, and rotating clockwise. In this case, the torus rotated in the opposite direction. It also looked like the sphere had been damaged by some kind of internal explosion. Nobody had any idea what it was, and it was thought that this was the work of the proto-civilization of the Earth, which was trying to colonize Jupiter. The version of the object’s alien origin was also considered. 

When people read it in October, everyone laughed merrily. However, when NASA revealed the discovery of something on Ganymede, everyone suddenly realized that the message seemed to be pure truth and therefore now, in order to hush up the information, NASA urgently released its legend of what was happening.

Peruvian court names Gates, Soros and Rockefeller as “creators” of the COVID-19 pandemic

Peruvian judges said the coronavirus pandemic was organized by “authors of a new world order”, including Microsoft founder Bill Gates, investment banker George Soros, and members of the Rockefeller family of billionaires. Such a verdict was issued when considering an appeal to extend the detention of a local resident accused of rape.

Judges Tito Gallegos, Luis Legia and Tony Changaray were the authors of the controversial ruling. They explained that the coronavirus pandemic turned out to be force majeure, since no one, except for the “organizers” of the pandemic named by them, could predict its consequences.

“The criminal process was paralyzed due to the COVID-19 pandemic created by the criminal elites, which paralyzed activities in almost all countries … No world government, individuals and legal entities, nor the defense of the accused can claim that this pandemic can be called ‘predictable’, except for the creators of the new world order, such as Bill Gate, Soros, Rockefeller, etc., who ruled it. They continue to manage it in conditions of extreme secrecy and in global corporations with an eye on the 2030 project,” the Pasión por el Derecho edition quotes the text of the resolution.

Representatives of the department, which is responsible for overseeing the work of judges in Peru, have already announced that a review has begun against the authors of the ruling. The RPP publication indicates that it will be clear from its results whether a colleague committed a violation.

In early 2020, against the backdrop of a pandemic, conspiracy theories related to the spread of COVID-19 spread online. According to one version, some world forces (among which Bill Gates, the CIA and the Chinese authorities were mentioned ) specially brought the coronavirus into the laboratory and spread it to put the inhabitants of the planet at home, irradiate them with 5G, and then microchip them. 

Gates himself later stated that such theories were “difficult to deny” because they are “too ridiculous.” 

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) believes that the virus was not created artificially – the organization is of the opinion that the infection was transmitted to humans from bats.

US “on the edge”: Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US?

US "on the edge": Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US? 123

The United States is in danger of going to extremes, which after the January 6 events, no one knows what is happening in the country and the uncertainty seems to peak in the next few hours.

There are facts which could show that we are heading for the most dramatic hours the world has experienced since the August 1991 coup in Russia when the communists attempted to return to power and take control of the nuclear arsenal.

First, after an incomprehensible and unexpected blackout in Pakistan, a blackout happened in the Vatican.

A few hours before the blackout in Pakistan, the frequency of power grids in Europe dropped sharply,   and only renowned German engineers and no less famous German quality of equipment saved Europe from plunging into darkness, as it happened a little later in Pakistan:

Are there plans for some kind of Pentagon intervention, as Washington now resembles Moscow in August 1991?:

Second, US President N. Trump is ready to activate the Emergency Alarm system that bypasses all conventional media (television, internet, radio, etc.) to send a message to US citizens!

In response, of course, to the decision of the dominant online media, from Google to Fb, Amazon, Tweet, Twitch to ban Trump from communicating with US citizens, even through Parler, the medium used by tens of millions of right-wing Americans to communicate.

The Emergency Alarm System (EAS) is a national alert system in the United States that came into force on January 1, 1997 and is coordinated jointly by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The system is designed primarily to allow the president to address the country by intervening in the programming of all radio and television stations in the event of a national emergency.

The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) is used as a backend for the dissemination of warning information via EAS and related technologies, such as Wireless Alerts Alerts (WEA), using Common Alerting Protocol (CAP). EAS messages are mainly transmitted via terrestrial and satellite radio and television (including broadcast and multichannel television), which must be part of the system. 

Millions of SMS have been sent in the last hours with the following update:

US "on the edge": Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US? 125

Third, the US military has been embroiled in an unprecedented political conflict. According to the New York Times, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked Chief of Staff General Marley Miley to restrict the president’s access to the nuclear arsenal, but he refused, as it would be a purely military coup.

The representative of the American Military leadership, David Butler confirmed that “the phone call was made and there was information about the nuclear control procedures”.

To add that 70% of the military support Trump, but one can not imagine the involvement of the US armed forces in the internal political conflict, even if it has gone beyond what could be assumed as “within reason.”

Fourth, the airspace above Washington was recently closed. Theoretically, it closed because an air traffic controller fell ill with coronavirus. Information was then leaked about “a possible terrorist attack by Iran in retaliation for Suleimani’s assassination.”

How likely is that? Then there were rumors that it was closed because N. Trump moved out of the White House accompanied by USAF fighters.

That is, for the movement of the aircraft of the presidency “Air Force 1” but it does not cease as a fact to be unprecedented.

The official excuse is that they disinfect the Air Traffic Control Room for flights over 18,000 feet because of a controller who tested positive for the virus.

See the picture of air traffic on the east coast of the USA, now:

US "on the edge": Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US? 126

Fifth, the arrival of the National Guard in Washington in large numbers:

Military helicopters observed over many US cities. There are many helicopters, they fly at unusually low altitudes and, if the helicopters are attack helicopters, people can consider full suspension systems with weapons:

Sixth, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released an UPDATE of the nuclear attack guidelines it gives to all Americans through the Ready.gov website. Among the items added by FEMA are the following:

On your way to work, find suitable hiding places to look for in the event of an explosion. Due to COVID-19, many of the places you may walk to and from work may be closed or may not work during normal hours. 

Such things were brought to the attention of the Americans for the last time fifty years ago, at the very peak of the Cold War, and the fact that this is now remembered again is very surprising to everyone. 

Seventh,since Sunday, January 10, the Boeing E-4B is constantly in the air – one of the so-called “doomsday aircraft”, that is, an air command post:

US "on the edge": Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US? 127

In normal times, any of these messages taken separately would have caused a serious panic among American conspiracy theorists, since, apart from periodic flights of “doomsday planes,” nothing of the above has ever happened. And now it turns out, as it were, seven inexplicable sensational news in 24 hours.

This allows one to think that in the United States either some not very good things are being prepared, or these things are in full swing. That is, we can talk either about some grandiose false flag or even a possible world war.
