UNKNOWN DRONES, AND SPACE FORCES/FARCESMarch 3, 2020
Today is an unusual blog in that I'm combining two very different and unrelated stories, but to a purpose, I hope! First, let's deal with the space force, or depending on your lights, space farce.
Let's recall a very basic, and very unusual, chronology. First, we had a U.S. Army general, General Mark Milley, giving a speech to a bunch of cadets, in which said general stated for all the world to hear that the soldiers of the future would have to fight "little green men." (See https://gizadeathstar.com/2016/05/tidbit-us-army-general-fighting-little-green-men/ and https://gizadeathstar.com/2018/12/remember-that-generals-little-green-men-speech/) At the time that story appeared, there were those who said there was no real significance to General Milley's remarks, because "little green men" was US Army code for Russians, given the Russian army's combat camouflage green uniforms. To that I said, and still say, hogwash, because General Milley would have had to be a dunce not to know the wider colloquial reference "little green men" remarks would conjure. Then we had, of course, President Trump's unusual remark that we needed "another space force." Another one? You mean that Gary McKinnon, the UK hacker who claimed to have hacked into the Department of Defense and claimed he saw the names of spaceships and their captains, was true?
Then of course, we had the Trump Administration actually getting its space force from Congress, with all the attendant reshuffling of the command structure. And all of this took place against a backdrop of DARPA's and NASA's "100 year warp drive" project whose goal is to make the USA "warp capable" within a century. That was about 10 or so years ago, so we're at T minus 90 years, and counting. Along the way, we've also seen story after story about asteroid mining, and the massive amount of wealth contained in this or that asteroid, which, lo and behold, had values estimated to be big enough, "coincidentally," to wipe out all that bad toxic derivative paper sloshing around in the financial "system."
Well, while all of that was going on, there was a story that I missed from 2018 that I missed, which G.B. recently shared (a big thank you!). Here it is:
Wait a minute... spying on other galaxies? Yes, you read that correctly, and the details are even more outlandish, and mind you, this time it's not me walking off the end of the twig of high octane speculation, but the U.S. Air Force, this time in the form of US Air Force Lieutenant General Verralinn Jamieson, who just happens to be the Air Force's Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance. General Jamieson made her remarks in 2018 for a US Air Force Association event. Her remarks:
"I am convinced that there are more domains - man-made domains - that will come, and I would offer you that if we look at galaxies - sounds nuts - but there's going to be a man-made domain in galaxies."
When queried what she meant by this admittedly bizarre and breathtaking remark, General Jamieson responded:
"Space has got different galaxies. And in those galaxies in the future we're going to actually have capability that we have right now in the air. We don't know what it is because we haven't reed our mind to think about what is that space and how we are going to utilize it. Space is contested. It's going to happen."
Now, there are to my mind, three ways to interpret this: (1) General Jamieson has been smoking a rare and potent form of wacky tobbacky, and thus like so many in Swampington DC is utterly out of touch with reality; (2) she knows something by dint of her capacity in intelligence, something she cannot share, perhaps something learned by some sort of "contact"; and/or (3) that "something" might be known by some sort of undisclosed capability to "see into the future."
None of these three alternatives are very reassuring. And as far as the General's remarks are concerned, the article itself points out that we've not yet made it to Mars with a manned expedition, a mere 48 million miles away, while the closest galaxy to us is the Adnromeda galaxy, which is a whopping 2.5 million light years away.
For the moment, however, let's turn to that other story. A few weeks ago there was a story of various drones appearing over Colorado. Many people sent me this story, but at the time I didn't blog about it because not much was known about the story, and there seemed to be weightier stories to blog about. But now the story is gained a little more traction, for according to this article shared by S.H., the U.S. Air Force does not have the slightest clue as to whose drones they are:
Now, in the article itself, it's interesting to note that the government emails state that the FBI is still involved in gathering intelligence about domestic UFO sightings, but much more importantly, the sightings are "not our team", i.e., they do not belong to "us." The question is, does "us" refer simply to the USA? or to humanity in general? More strikingly, the sightings follow a familiar pattern:
In another email, confusion is expressed by an unknown sender who asks their superior if there are any operations ongoing.
Northeastern Colorado is in a tizzy about drone sightings. They all seem clustered in an area that has quite a few Minuteman sites. Do you know if security forces is playing with UASs [unmanned aircraft systems] up there?”
In a third email that question above is answered within the 90th Security Forces Group FOIA release dated January 8, 2020. The group states that the drones are “100000000000% not us.”
“I’ve seen some articles pointing the finger as us,” the sender writes, “but I can definitely say this is not our team.”
In other words, the sightings occurred over nuclear weapons facilities. As the article notes, some discussion was had as to whether the drones were part of base security and defense system tests, and that's entirely possible. However, the article concludes with a press release which, once again, denies that the drone sightings were of anything belonging to the US Air Force.
So, for the sake of argument and our high octane speculation of the day, let's take the emails and the US Air Force at its word, and that the drones were not part of some top secret defense system test unknown to the base commander, and so on. When one does so, and compares this story to the remarks of Lt. General Jamieson, one gets an unusual parallax, if I may borrow the term: Might the drone events of late 2019 and early 2020 be the types of events that prompted her to make her remarks a year before, in 2018? Whatever one makes of this speculation, it's intriguing to note that the matter of the mysterious drones is surely known to General Jamieson, for according to Wikipedia, she continues to occupy her post of the Air Force's Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance.
See you on the flip side...
