Every day, spectacular events occur in the skies, in space, in the oceans, and on the ground. Astonished witnesses around the world see them. For many, the shock of something so extraordinary, so inexplicable, is a consciousness-shattering experience, never forgotten. Yet few of them tell anyone at all of what they saw, save perhaps a close friend or family member.

The things they see are of some variety, but which often fall within one of several categories. Here is a report that is typical. It describes an event that occurred in Hydes, Maryland, on May 15, 1976, but wasn’t reported until twenty-three years later to the National UFO Reporting Center, on the World Wide Web. The witness who wrote about this was with five other people, all adults and professionals, lying on the front lawn of a farm after dinner at about 7 p.m. To their great surprise, they saw an enormous, round craft approach slowly from the horizon, perhaps at 30 or 40 miles per hour. It slowly rotated in counter-clockwise direction; white lights were visible on the outer edges. The witness estimated the object’s diameter to be 1,000 feet, although it was hard to notice details, due to the sunlight at the time of day. When the object appeared over them, it stopped and split into four smaller, wedged shaped craft. Then, in the “blink of an eye,” the objects zoomed away to the North, South, East, and West. There was never a sound during the sighting. “To this day,” writes the witness, “we have never spoken about this to anyone, not even ourselves.”

This sighting is extraordinary, inexplicable, and utterly commonplace. The records of UFO reports describe many examples of craft that are silent, divide into smaller segments, and zip away noiselessly at amazing speeds. Not only do ordinary people report them, but so do military personnel. As with the military, so it is with civilians that silence is usually the rule when it comes to UFOs. The reasons differ, of course, just as trauma and fear of ridicule differ from secrecy protocols.

However one wishes to interpret the phenomenon, every indication points to the number of UFO witnesses being not in the thousands, but the millions. Whether one considers the subject to be bunk, or of the utmost seriousness, people are seeing things which are affecting them deeply. Because there are no institutional structures for them to report, or even talk about, what they saw, they keep silent and try to forget what is unquestionably the most incredible experience of their lives. For some, time takes its eventual toll on the strength of their convictions, and they convince themselves that maybe what they saw wasn’t all that incredible. They keep silent, of course, because they fear being labeled as crazy — a luxury few can afford.

Seeing is not always believing, much less understanding. What matters is seeing with the right perspective. History provides many examples of people seeing things that were denied by higher authorities; even more of people who saw old things in new ways, and were ignored. Galileo failed to get the Pope even to look at Jupiter’s moons through a telescope. In the 18th century, the French Academy of Science denied that stones could fall from the heavens, and rejected the mass of witnesses testimony as superstitious nonsense. For most of the 20th century, scientists dismissed continental drift as fantasy, despite the observations that Africa and South America seemed to fit together, and shared many geological properties.

Leaving science for politics, the examples become more dramatic, almost surreal. The last century has provided several instances of entire peoples being liquidated amid blanket denials from their killers. Each time, witnesses came forth to announce what was happening, only to face silence or dismissal. Meanwhile, entire nations, such as the Armenians, Ukrainians, Kazakhs, Jews, Slavs, Cambodians, and East Timorese — to name merely the best known — were ravaged.

The mass of ignored UFO sightings fits into this pattern, whatever its ultimate answer may be. You may see; you may know. Whether you can persuade in the face of official denials is entirely different.

This pattern evolved over the last century. The airship wave of 1897, for instance, mirrored our own age by commanding broad public interest, then vanishing into the collective memory hole. Early witnesses, however, responded to these sightings rather differently than today. Official ridicule was less important, talk of aliens was non-existent (except for a few isolated jokes about men from Mars), and people were more forthcoming to their local, independent, newspapers to describe what they saw. Mainly, there were fewer genuine UFO sightings, and people were less aware of the phenomenon. It was just as well; people had nowhere to report what they saw. In 1897, if you thought you saw an alien, you were on your own.

This changed after the Second World War, when sightings of anomalous events spiked dramatically upward. A crucial reason was that new technologies, such as radar, made it easier to detect UFOs, as did widespread aviation. Therefore, it is impossible to state conclusively that UFOs themselves became more common, despite this being the working assumption of most UFO writers. It is, however, a reasonable supposition, based upon the upsurge in reports by witnesses on the ground. If this is so, we cannot yet know why; we can only guess.

One point is beyond question: UFOs became important to our military and political elites. This required the collection of as much intelligence as fast as possible, and gives full flavor to the intense media coverage of flying saucers following Kenneth Arnold’s sighting of June 24, 1947. For months and years before Arnold’s encounter, Americans and Europeans, including military personnel, had been seeing UFOs. Early in 1947, for example, military aircraft had “chased” a UFO over the North Sea, only to be outmaneuvered and outraced. The intense media barrage following Arnold’s sighting lasted for two weeks, encouraged people from around the country to report what they saw, then stopped abruptly. Then, for the next two decades, military agencies such as Projects Sign, Grudge, and Blue Book continued to accept reports from the public — without lending any credence to them — which provided a useful service for the collection of intelligence.

From the late 1940s to the late 1960s, an American who saw a UFO could rest easy with the fiction that his government would investigate the event. Blue Book, however, was a mere collection point: it could not conduct any true analysis of UFOs and was only charged with debunking the matter to the public. This deficiency was apparent by the early 1950s; in response, two formidable private groups were able to compete with Blue Book for the collection of UFO reports: The National Investigative Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) and the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO). This institutional structure helped to give UFO witnesses a veneer of legitimacy.

Even so, most sightings went unreported. During Blue Book’s heyday, Air Force consultant Allen Hynek conservatively estimated that the program received less than ten percent of all actual UFO sightings. Accepting this logic translates into over 120,000 sightings of UFOs in the United States for roughly two decades, and a much larger number of witnesses. In light of Blue Book’s fallacious method of explaining most of these sightings, we are left with the unsettling conclusion that there were thousands upon thousands of legitimate UFO sightings during that period.

The era of institutional legitimacy was brief. By the mid-1960s, a new wave of UFO sightings created a sense of near-crisis. The role of Blue Book became a bit obvious when the best it could do, in effect, was to blame UFOs on swamp gas. The loss of public credibility outweighed any counter value Blue Book might have possessed as a collection agency of UFO reports. Its demise became inevitable from that point; by 1969 it was dead. Ironically, in closing its doors, Blue Book also vanquished its two main competitors, NICAP and APRO, neither of which ever recovered from the ‘bear market’ for UFOs that ensued in the aftermath.

Which brings us to our present era. An awesome number of UFO sightings continue to occur, but which now leave no echo within the public realm. Officially, the military no longer admits to investigating UFOs. Although several organizations accept UFO reports, few witnesses know of them. The largest UFO organization of the past thirty years, the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), does not compare in size or quality to NICAP or APRO. The result is something like the situation prior to the 1940s, with nowhere for a witness to go, and nothing that officialdom will “do” about it. It is the situation of our six friends sitting on the lawn of their farm, watching in silent, isolated, awe as an object of unimaginable technology flew over their heads. Once again, we are on our own.

Such is the very rough, public development of the human response to the problem. Regarding the UFOs themselves, there have been a few consistent threads spanning the years. They operate by stealth. They are silent. They are everywhere. They have not publicly identified themselves. They represent technology that is impossible by known standards. For decades, people have claimed to see aliens, to have been abducted by them, and occasionally to have communicated with them.

Ensnared by the unknown between the poles of official silence and ridicule, people offer their own theories. The aliens are here to create a race of hybrids for future colonization of the planet. Or, they are tourists here to visit. Or, they are scientists studying us, bound by the prime directive of non-interference. Or, they are here for the Earth’s minerals and DNA. Or, they are space brothers seeking to enlighten those humans ready to receive their wisdom. Or, they are indifferent to our fate. Or, they are from our future. Or, they are demonic entities as portrayed in the New Testament. Or, they are angelic beings who can be channeled. Or, they are hyper-dimensional entities who can blip into and out of our reality. Or, they have been here all along and have guided human evolution.

There is no sure way out of this morass. Even official “disclosure” of UFOs — a laudable goal with fifty years of history — cannot reliably lead to a state of clarity. It is not certain from which source disclosure can come: does the President really know everything? Nor is there a way to verify the extent or accuracy of disclosure. Past official statements do not give cause for confidence. Indeed, the CIA has been claiming for several years that it has provided disclosure, after admitting to an interest in UFO reports to protect the existence of its classified aircraft. Further disclosures from official sources may provide information that fits along any point in the long spectra of completeness, accuracy, honesty, and intentions. In other words, we might in theory receive information that is complete, accurate, honest, and with the public’s best intentions in mind. Or, it may be incomplete, incorrect, dishonest, and with the intention to sell us down the river. Or anywhere in between.

We must also consider the likelihood that full and accurate disclosure may not be possible. Our leaders may know a little bit about this, or they may know much. There is no reason, however, to believe that they know everything of importance, or that they have a relationship with aliens on some level of parity. If others have arrived with technology far beyond our own, it is more likely that our leaders have not achieved “diplomatic” parity, or would learn anything more than what these others want them to know. This could be nearly anything. Self-serving dispensing of isolated facts comprises a large part of U. S. diplomatic history, and indeed the history of most nations; there is no apparent reason why it must be different with an advanced race.

Conceding the above, it remains that the fight to end UFO secrecy remains one of the great causes of our day. It is a struggle for truth, self-government, and survival. It is a call for courage in the face of a potentially grave threat. It is fighting the good fight, regardless of the consequences.

“Fight” may well be the most apt of all words. Based upon our limited knowledge about the underside of this phenomenon, humanity appears to be facing the presence of others under the worst possible circumstances. The maxim “divide and conquer” is well-worn in our own history. An observation of the human response to the presence of others suggests it is one they know as well.

Antarctica Update: More Strange Visitors

December 13, 2016

In the wake of my blogs about the strange goings on in Antarctica lately, several people shared more information about the southern polar continent’s list of visitors, and a very strange list it is indeed. And I thought I’d pass along their findings to the readership here, along with a few remarks and high octane speculations of my own. For example, Mr. D.A. sent along the following list; among the list of visitors to Antarctica, we may now add the fact that former President Bill Clinton visited the Christ Church, New Zealand “Deep Freeze” Base in that city:

PRESIDENT CLINTON VISIT TO THE CHRISTCHURCH INTERNATIONAL ANTARCTIC CENTRE AND OPERATION DEEPFREEZE.

Notably, according to this short article, President Clinton spoke via telephone to the American McMurdo base in Antarctica.

But wait… there’s more.

The list also includes Great Britain’s Prince Harry:

Prince Harry and the Royal Family in the South Pole

According to this article, the visit was a “charity function” for wounded soldiers:

In November 2013, Prince Harry joined one of three teams of wounded servicemen and women to trek to the geographic South Pole for Walking With the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge.

The three seven-man teams from the UK, Commonwealth and USA departed London for Cape Town on Sunday 17th November to acclimatise at Novolazarevskaya Station, Antarctica.

The expedition to the South Pole began from 87° south on 30th November, with the teams reaching the geographic South Pole on 13th December.

The teams of service personnel, all of whom have physical or cognitive injuries, represented and raised funds for military charities from the constituent nations: Soldier On (Canada); Soldier On (Australia); Soldiers to Summits (United States); and Walking With The Wounded (United Kingdom).

Due to the hostile conditions and the nature of the injuries involved, the expedition teams were followed by a support team, who were on hand in case of emergencies.

Trekking around 15km to 20km per day, the teams endured temperatures as low as -45°C and 50mph winds as they pull their pulks (custom built arctic sledges), each weighing in excess of 70kg, towards the southernmost point on the globe.

As with previous Walking With The Wounded expeditions, the South Pole Allied Challenge aims to highlight the extraordinary courage and determination of the men and women who have been wounded while serving their countries and to draw attention to the need to help in their career transition.

Stop and ponder that one for a moment: a trip to Antarctica to “highlight the extraordinary courage and determination of the men and women who have been wounded while serving their countries and to draw attention to the need to help in their career transition.” Uh huh… I know that that event certainly stuck in my mind and made me think immediately of how hard career transitions are for wounded soldiers. Frankly, a parade down main street would have been more effective, and therefore I question the story, not that the expedition didn’t happen, but rather, I question the explanation of why it happened.

Oh, and before he left with his entourage, Prince Harry of course spent a little time at the Palace meeting with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II at a reception:

Before they set off, The Walking With The Wounded teams and Prince Harry met The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh at a reception at Buckingham Palace as they made their final preparations for the 200 mile expedition.

Now, if you’re like me, you will suspect that there was probably a bit more going on here than just a “reception” with grandmum and granddad.

And then finally, we have King Juan Carlos and his Queen making a little trek through the Straits of Magellan on a Chilean navy vessel, before the King “fulfilled an ambition” by visiting Antarctica in 2004:

SPAIN – ROYAL VISIT OF KING CARLOS TO ANTARCTICA

Now, if you’re keeping royal Antarctica score cards here, that marks the British Royal House, and the Spanish Royal House, as visitors to the continent, and (just for kicks) let’s recall that the House of Windsor, or better put, the House of Saxe-Coburg und Gotha has its own multifaceted connections to the old houses of Hannover, Welf-Este, and of course, the house of Hohenzollern for all you Kaiser Wilhelm II fans.  And if we really want to poke around in the family archives a bit, we’d have to include at least historic connections with the House of Orange as well. And the Spanish royal house, similarly, has its own multifaceted historical and biological connections to the Bourbon-Poissons in France, and to the Hapsburgs. One has to wonder, therefore, what the Antarctica gossip was around the royal dinner tables in London and Madrid and in Germany, France, and Austria.

All we’re missing here is a visit by the Romanovs, but given all the other high strangeness, perhaps we can figure that Patriarch Kiril’s visit might have been that of a “representative.”

So adding it all up, we have the following increasingly strange and bizarre list of people that have either visited, or have been connected to, Antarctica:

1)  Rudolf Hess (sponsor of 1938-39 Nazi Expedition);

2) Herman Goering(sponsor of 1938-39 Nazi Expedition);

3) Admiral Richard Byrd, visitor, leader of Operation High Jump, 1947, who makes strange remarks for El Mercurio of Santiago de Chile about the USA preparing to defend against “enemy fighters that can fly from pole to pole with tremendous speed”;

4) Russian Orthodox Patriarch of Moscow, Kiril III (visitor), to bless an Orthodox chapel;

5) US Secretary of State John Kerry, visitor, to learn about “climate change” (so we’re told);

6) Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Moon astronaut, visitor, who tweets about getting ready to “go to the launchpad”, who then has to be evacuated and quarantined;

7) Prince Harry of Great Britain, visitor on a “charity” junket to highlight wounded soldiers and difficult career transitions;

8) King Juan Carlos of Spain, visitor, who wants to fulfill a “lifelong ambition” to see beautiful, scenic Antarctica.

And as if all this were not enough, Buzz Aldrin allegedly tweeted “We are all in danger. It is evil itself,” (Astronaut Buzz Aldrin Tweets “We are all in Danger. It is evil itself”) apparently in reference to the alleged pyramid-mountain found on the continent. I cannot help but to indulge in a little tangential high octane speculation here, since…
