Readers may have noticed that I've not been terribly excited about the "disclosure" promised in the recently-released and much-hyped UFO report. Other than an interview here and there, I've not commented much, save to notice a few things: (1) we've seen UFO reports in the lamestream propatainment media before, going back decades, so the recent New York Times and Washington Post attention to the subject is nothing new, (2) we've seen UFO marketing campaigns before too, and (3) the military's interest is nothing new. What is new is that it seems Ufology has lost its collective memory and forgotten its own history, which is a subject for another time.
In this sense there's nothing really new to see here, except perhaps that there's a tighter coordination between the recent media marketing campaign and the military than before.
But there is something noticeably new about the report according to this article shared by L.C.:
What's new is this:
Together with one voice, the anonymous US officials and the "paper of record" which is supposed to scrutinize US officials assure us definitively that the mysterious aerial phenomena that have reportedly been witnessed by military personnel are certainly not any kind of secret US technology, but could totally be aliens and could definitely be a sign that the Russians or Chinese have severely lapped America's lagging military development.
"The report determines that a vast majority of more than 120 incidents over the past two decades did not originate from any American military or other advanced U.S. government technology," NYT was reportedly told by the officials. "That determination would appear to eliminate the possibility that Navy pilots who reported seeing unexplained aircraft might have encountered programs the government meant to keep secret."
Oh well if the US government has ruled out secret US government weaponry programs, hot damn that's good enough for me. Great journalism you guys.
One senior official said without hesitation that U.S. officials knew it was not American technology.
He said there was worry among intelligence and military officials that China or Russia could be experimenting with hypersonic technology https://t.co/bgYtohKC9O

"Intelligence officials believe at least some of the aerial phenomena could have been experimental technology from a rival power, most likely Russia or China," the Times reports. "One senior official briefed on the intelligence said without hesitation that U.S. officials knew it was not American technology. He said there was worry among intelligence and military officials that China or Russia could be experimenting with hypersonic technology."
No, it's not ours flying around up there (after trillions of missing dollars and a massive post-World War Two effort to get a grip on the phenomena of UFOs), but it could be aliens and even worse, it could be Russians or Chinese. In any case, we need lots more money to catch back up with "whomever". Now what's very interesting here is not only the plea for more money in connection with the UFO issue, but the tacit admission that some, at least, of what we may be seeing could be just advanced terrestrial technology.
In short, we're looking at another carefully prepared narrative, and this one I don't suspect is going to go away any time soon: the UFO-Chinese-Russian threat is here to stay; they've taken the op public, and are demanding more money to develop the emulative technologies they've already probably been covertly developing for many years. It's not JFK's "missile gap," it's now a "UFO gap".
There are two possible ways to interpret this, and this is where it gets much "stickier". The first is, they're lying - hardly difficult to imagine coming from Swampington, D.C. - and are fully aware of their own massive technological and covert efforts to emulate UFO performance. I have written about this issue in several books and spoken about it at the San Mateo, CA and Bastrop, TX Secret Space Conferences in 2014 and 2015. For anyone attending the first of those conferences, the presentations of the late Mark McCandlish, and of Michael Schratt, should disabuse anyone of the notion that there has not been a massive expenditure of money, research, and time to create some very exotic technologies the past few decades. In short, they're saying essentially what I and others were saying at those conferences: there is a massive covert and technological infrastructure working on such technologies. The difference is, in their version they're located in Russia and China, not here, and we need to create one here, which will require lots of money.
This attempt to accept the tenets of the "secret space program" conferences, and shift their center, and the time of origin of the American response to the present, is simply risible.
The second possibility is much more frightening and a much more remote possibility, but it's a possibility that nonetheless must be mentioned: they're not lying when they say "it's not ours" but that it might be human. What this might represent is that the entire infrastructure that created all those ultra-secret black projects - an infrastructure that Ufologist Richard Dolan dubbed the "breakaway civilization" - has indeed so pulled away from its tether to the overt civilization that funded it, that the latter has entirely lost control of it and no longer knows what it is doing, and it has been left with nothing to show for its expenditures.
There is also, however, a third possibility, namely, that the planned colonization of the Moon and Mars, and ultimately the mining of celestial bodies, is going to require systems much different than chemical rockets. But before such systems can be revealed, the ground needs to be prepared, and since such systems could be dangerous in "the wrong hands" (like China and Russia), we're going to have to implement even more draconian surveillance and security measures to keep such systems from falling into "the wrong hands." There is, of course, a contradiction here since by their own admission Russia and China already potentially have them, but such contradictions have never bothered the swamp before.
The bottom line? Well, in my opinion, if this article's information about the report should prove to be true, we've just been fed another (very expensive) nothing burger... What they really need to sell this narrative is a "big event" involving UFOs and lots of people, a kind of Sino-Russo-extra-terrestrial Sputnik event, a false flag with saucers...
See you on the flip side...
