    I feel bad for people thinking we’ll get disclosure from hearings they don’t understand what drives the cover up. There is a shadow government that has alien technology that is above the law, above checks and balances that are a dangerous group of people. Think about this if you Jane children and you’re about to go to a hearing and tell us everything. What will likely happen is you’ll get a knock on your door from strange men that seem to know everything about you, almost like they have an omnipresence. They’ll warn you and threaten your life or worse your family’s life. Lue Elizondo and Chris Mellon and many others are great men with huge balls, however not everyone is of that caliber actually in AATIP there’s a slide. Slide 9 says there is an enemy of the United States that has the science to control and manipulate space time and matter, penetrate sensitive US facilities, INFLUENCE DECISION MAKERS(cough) and compromise national security. That slide is dedicated to the group controlling the cover up. We won’t ever get disclosure from the USG.

    Well, i am going to jump in here and say to the community, “i told you so”, like four years ago and i could go through the past four years of comments i made here (of course i wouldn’t go through that) LOL. And i never stopped calling this all a big old op and it looks like i have been correct. That includes all the DOD contractors/former and current spooky spooks counter and counter/counter included. 🙂

    This little hearing pulled my theories all together and i was right as rain. Sorry everyone but i had to consider saying goodbye to this topic because it had become painful – in regards to the overall naivete of the community as well as not wanting to be continually insulted by operatives.

    And i will say that most podcasters , and that includes those who enjoy high regard from the community, are all a part of it and they all keep heralding big breakthrough news from the government offices. They get their information from all of their weapons contractor/spook friends.

    btw, i always thought it was a weather balloon. I mean, i know those Reds are sneaky and all……………………………But that is meritac for ya! I am just a person who pays attention and has done so for about forty years and counting.

    I shall say no more here. 🙂 Oh, i am really glad you threw in that comment about Russia and China being less risk averse than the god blessed homeland! I agree with your interpretation of the good doctor’s implied meaning there.
    Thank you Richard!

    This hearing was almost laughable. Only a few ballon like sightings. Then suggesting it was probably China!! They are trying to bore the heck out of the public so nobody cares anymore 😴.. Never showing the real unexplainable sightings.
    I’m done watching these hearings..I guess I shouldn’t of had my hopes up since 2017..Great presentation you gave Richard
    Thank you

      I never had any interest of watching the hearing because I knew it was going to be a joke. And I don’t have any plans to watch any future hearings, they are never going to present any truthful information at these earrings.

  4. Ed Claytor

    A dog and pony show for the Military Industrial Complex. About the only give was the last question when he was bit more relaxed. Dr Kilpatrick indicated more with hand gesturing about the academia side having to stay within the “classified sources”. Meaning to me if it was seen and could only be explained in acidemia theoretical terms then it was going to be and stay classified. Saying in effect yeah, we will tell you about it, if its adversarial or an explainable natural occurrence. However, if it can’t be explained by those two, the general public will never hear about it.

    Hi Richard
    Excellent analysis of the situation and the hearings, Richard. I don’t know how SK can be so certain they are not extraterrestrial, yet still have no idea what they are. It sounds unscientific to me. Perhaps what KS was covertly suggesting was that scientific progress and disclosure won’t be made within AARO or the government; private endeavours of scientists hold the key. Or is KS following the narrative L Elizondo and C Jaimungal put forward, that if we identify the threat, the threat will be on our doorstep post haste? And that trigger may be just a collective awareness, consciously or unconsciously, by the masses.

      Damn me all to hell if you ain’t asking the question I always ask! Going over the history and the sightings and the documents and what the experiencers tell us has consumed me for over 30 years, and it always leaves me asking this very question… What should we DO?

      Most people won’t do anything and don’t see why they should. They are spectators. One new-age mystic even labels them less-than-real.

      It’s not for me to judge that far, but it’s safe to say that the vast majority of people with any interest in the UFO field are in it for the entertainment value. I’ve seen people openly say that here on this website.

      And that’s OK. For them.

      But for us… what do we DO? How do we affect what is happening? How do we drive these things in a direction we think it should go?

      Me? I think we should start asking for formal apologies for past illegalities and misbehaviors. I think we should start asking for accountability based on known and authenticated documentary evidence.

      I think we should be seriously looking at the practicalities of contact with non-human intelligence, especially diplomacy, trade and technological/cultural exchange. Demands should be made for all information regarding past and present activities in this regard. I should think that at minimum, hypothetical preparations have been made, probably more than once.

      I cannot over-estimate the value of Richard Dolan’s contributions to the history of the phenomenon. Upon a foundation he has been instrumental in creating, we can move forward into a future of active participation.

    Sean Kirkpatrick. This is a double barreled Irish name. Everyone knows the Irish have the gift of the gab. Therefore they can easily talk to you for two hours without revealing much, if anything, of value if they don’t want to.

  7. Ted2

    You already said not to expect anything from the government and now we are going to have to watch this s__tshow progress. The only thing that can possibly upset their apple cart is some unforeseen action by the UFOs. Not likely.

  8. Andromeda107

    Richard I didn’t have any interest in watching the hearing, I knew nothing was going to come of it. We aren’t going to get any transparent information from AARO in relation to these UAPs , which have been witnessed for decades by people. AARO and Congress refuse to address the fact that these objects have seen, documented and tracked since the 40’s by regular credible citizens and the Air Force. The Air Force has always taken the lead in tracking these objects, and they are usually first on the scene when these UAPs crash, but oh no AARO and Congress dare not mention the Air Force involvement ,or how quiet the Air Force has been.I wouldn’t be surprised if Dr. Kirkpatrick is taking his orders from someone higher up , being told to be evasive to as many questions as possible from Congress , that’s if he actually knows anything.Congress need only to look at the Wilson/Davis notes to see how deep the cover up goes,although I would hope by now the Congress people who participate in these hearings would have read the Wilson/Davis notes by now.I do wonder do any of these people in Congress who participate in these hearings want any real truth to come out on the uap/alien abduction phenomenon? It’s obvious that Senator Earnst wasn’t interesting in getting to the real truth as she kept bringing up Chinese weather balloons and tech from adversaries.

  9. Gary Roberts

    I’ll clear it up for Y’all.. If you “believe” in UFO/UAP, you must be a Republican. So naturally, this Administration labels it as bullshit. It’s always partisan. Always.

    1. itsmeRitaC

      Huh? I guess since president ike, there have been no republicans in office? Eisenhower was Republican. Or……….Was he? Who can know? That was BSM. Before social media.
      Cheers.

    Richard,

    As we’ve previously discussed in the not too distant past, it is quite apparent that the public side of AARO’s mission objective is to put the UFO genie back in its top secret, need-to-know, bottle. We predicted this months ago, and we can see it happening right now…right before our very eyes. This has been the case ever since the AOA got what they wanted–i.e., the creation of an officially sanctioned and fully funded UFO program (AARO) to resurrect the short lived AAWSAP–BAASS program, which was run by the DIA between 2008 and 2010. In addition to taking over the role of AAWSAP-BAASS, AARO has also taken over most, if not all, of the functions of the pseudonymous AATIP group, which had been investigating military UFO incidents all along under different names.

    As we also previously discussed, the AOA accomplished this feat through the creation of a carefully controlled soft-disclosure initiative that was implemented to garner public interest in UFOs as leverage to force congress into creating the AARO. Mission accomplished. Of course, this initiative also involved having to strip away the decades old UFO stigma that was previously orchestrated by the government. Unfortunately, public interest in the matter is now no longer needed, but is instead a hindrance, if not a threat, to the agenda of the AOA’s handlers–a cost of doing business that they were aware of from the get go. You see, the faction within the DOD/IC, who backed the AOA (i.e., their “handlers”) never had any intention of disclosing what they really know about UFO’s to the public; they simply allowed the AOA to leak, and subsequently promote, carefully selected military related UFO information and evidence through various MSM outlets, like the NY Times, TTSA, TV, and the internet in order to execute their agenda, which by all accounts appears to involve wrestling control of all UFO programs away from the established UFO deep state faction within the IC, or at least to be read in on those programs. In order to get congress on board, however, they needed to get the public involved, so they leaked just enough information to peak public interest, as well as strip away the attached stigma that the government so masterfully created over the last 7 decades. Of course, to give their agenda teeth, they had to promote the notion that the objects present a potential national security threat. It all worked spectacularly well, and once the AARO was established, the disclosure spigot was simply turned off, and the AARO (and NASA) were then tasked to clean up the residual spill. Obviously, this is all conjecture on my part, but it would explain a lot.

    With that said, the AOA and their handlers knew this was coming well ahead of time, so they needed to consolidate all loose ends into a tidy package that could more easily controlled. That is why the term UFO was re-branded as UAP, and why the UAP phenomenon magically started with the TIC TAC incident in 2004 and ended with Naval pilot incidents of 2019–as if the UFO phenomenon did not exist prior to, or after, those dates. In order to control the narrative, they simply had to limit its scope—which includes boiling down reported UAP incidents to nothing more than anodyne numbers that are presented to the public once a year. It’s a simple as that. And now that they got that they wanted, Operation Public Putz is being systematically rolled out to shut down public interest and curiosity.

    Does anyone else not think it is a coincidence that the TTSA suddenly disbanded–never mind form the way it did in the first place by a middling rock star–once congress created the UAP task force leading to the formation of AARO? Has anyone not questioned why there were no follow up articles by the NY times about what is arguably one of, if not the most important, ongoing news stories in the annals of human history? Or question why the rumors involving the public disclosure of additional videos of the TIC TAC, and possibly the Gimbal and Go-Fast incidents, never came to fruition? We know they have them, and we were briefly teased about their forthcoming release, but it never happened, and all talk of them has simply evaporated. Why? For national security concerns? Come on. Their real concern is that the videos (recorded in the optical EM frequency range) would present tangible proof to anyone laying eyes on them that UFOs are in fact real, are likely alien, and can’t be simply explained away, or rationalized, as heat signatures of jets, hot air balloons, drones, or birds–which is what the AARO (and NASA) will eventually surmise; mark my words. The only reason why the public was teased with the release of more videos in the first place was to titillate us even more, but the powers that be quickly realized it wasn’t necessary; they got what they wanted, so the spigot was summarily turned off.

    As I previously mentioned, the whole soft disclosure phenomenon of the past 5 or 6 years was just a carefully orchestrated and brilliantly executed scheme by the AOA and their DOD/IC backers to reinstate the original AAWSAP–BAASS program, including one of AAWSAP’s most intriguing mission objectives, which followed in the footsteps of VADM Wilson’s probe–to investigate allegations that a certain faction, or factions, within the IC have been overseeing reverse engineering programs of alien craft, which are in the possession of their aerospace contractors. This objective was not only one of the deliverables specifically identified in the AAWSAP-BAASS contract, which was run by the DIA (where the good Admiral had previously worked), but it was quietly slipped into the 2023 NDAA (Sect 1673) as a last minute addition in December of 2022. The Section 1673 addendum includes the establishment of a secure mechanism for reporting “…any activity or program by a department or agency of the Federal Government or a contractor of such a department or agency relating to unidentified anomalous phenomena, including with respect to material retrieval, material analysis, reverse engineering, research and development, detection and tracking, developmental or operational testing, and security protections and enforcement.” So what does this language tell you? It tells me that some people in the government know the allegations are credible, and they want to be in on it. And this is not some conspiratorial bullshit. This is the real deal, printed in black and white and signed off on by the legislative and executive branches of the US government.

    Also, as we previously discussed, Section 1673 of the 2023 NDAA also provides protection for witnesses who had signed NDAs, which was perhaps the most important road block to obtaining information about the clandestine UFO programs.

    Unfortunately, Section 1673 also mandates the establishment of a mechanism that “prevents the unauthorized public reporting or compromise of classified military and intelligence systems, programs, and related activity, including all categories and levels of special access and compartmented access programs.” This falls under the category of “Rut, Roh…Shaggy.” We are now seeing this mechanism play out right before our very eyes in the public UAP hearings. Essentially the public is screwed. Wash, rinse, repeat. 1969 all over again. Of course, the AOA may resurface from time to time to publicly promote what we might perceive as their continuing support for public disclosure, but is it really? Of course, I am being cynical for purely selfish reasons…if any one of us were in their place, we would have likely done the same thing. I suppose, if anything, we can be thankful they cracked the door open for us–at least for a couple years. The one thing that we, the public, have going in our favor is that the UFO stigma, which was a major impediment to public acceptance of UFOs, was shattered (or at least cracked) over the course of the last 5 years, and will be hard to glue back together again—at least in the near term. What we need right now is a credible, non-military, UFO related incident or event to occur, which cannot be controlled by the military establishment. The MSM will be all over the first whiff of any major public UFO incident. To this end, if the Varginha, Zimbabwe, Westall, Miami Gardens, Wanaque Reservoir, or Phoenix lights, incidents happened today, would we even be having this conversation? God, I hope James Cameron can get a hold of that alien film footage from Varginha before AARO gets a hold of it.

    On a side note, I have a quick question: what are your thoughts on the JASON group? I came across an interesting paper written for BAASS in 2008 (clearly as part of the AAWSAP-BAASS program) on anti-gravity/EM theory/technology, in which the JASON group got involved. I found it interesting that it was the only paper I could find in DTIC involving Bigelow, and that JASON was apparently tasked to review, if not flat out discredit it. The group who wrote the paper to BAASS even went on to write up a response to debunk the theory used by JASON to discredit their claims, which was published in DTIC as well. It’s probably nothing, but I found it interesting nonetheless. You may, however, want to look into the JASON group some time to see how they might fit in with the government’s UFO agenda, if you haven’t done so already. I believe JASON also had ties with SRI at one point. Just thought.

      Hi DA, This is a great comment. I think pretty much everything you say here makes sense, but I still wonder about connecting TTSA formally (more or less) to the overall plan that has now given us AARO. I won’t say it’s out of the question, but don’t you think it’s at least as possible that TTSA was guided for different reasons to push “disclosure” to its limited extent, an effort that was quickly and easily swallowed up and digested by the national security elite to (once again) change the direction of the information? To me, this still seems more plausible but I can’t pretend I know for sure. In any case, thanks for this. As for the Jason Group, I haven’t followed them that closely to be honest. They are definitely very important and influential. I agree they are worth some research.

      1. itsmeRitaC

        I for one would be highly interested in having a real discourse on this topic right here. Suggestion for a show, Richard. But i may be an audience of one. 🙂 No, i honestly don’t think so. But you also may have personal connections that make it unwise topic to get into here.

        If TTSA was not originally involved in the bigger picture, the gov’t sure got in at record speed for something they didn’t know was about to happen. With a lot of moving parts too. In fact, nothing from TTSA, as far as i have known about anyway, ever went anyplace. But i only know about the History Channel limited series for certain.

        And who renamed them UAP? That was already in that original NYTimes article. That rebranding in the paper of record is convenient, imo. Maybe i am wrong and UAP wasn’t presented to the world, via that original article?

        I also think the moving of the ufo timeline is convenient, although i am not familiar with the statute of limitations for suing the DOD or the Feds for losing ones’ job or reputation, etc, from decades ago.

        Anyway, i think that the fact that the committee chair and one other senator is all who showed up is a direct message in itself. Do we know who showed up for the classified one? Was Kirkpatrick the ‘witness’? He is talked about in that Greenstreet video as having said to others that the gov’t knows that there are ET craft for a long time. He said it like three years ago. It is in the most recent of those videos on Skinwalker. So he lies all over the place, obviously. Not that it matters……………………. Oh well.

        OK. I will take a posting break for a while. LOL.

        1. Richard Dolan Post author

          I think the original NYT article used the phrase U.F.O., with the periods in there. But TTSA usually avoided the phrase UFO, as they often said, in order to avoid the stigma. I do understand that although it’s always a double-edged sword to start playing around with the branding of anything as well known as UFOs.

        I have been seeing references to the Jasons in the UFO mess since 1988. If I am not mistaken, their UFO-related activities go back into the 1950s, and their people are said to have been involved with MJ-12. Didn’t Stanton Friedman say that?

        Where did the acronym UAP come from? Maybe it was Hillary Clinton back in 2016.

          Bill Cooper was the first person to start connecting the Jasons to the UFO coverup. I believe they were created around 1960 as a high level national security consulting body. For all I know they could well have information into MJ-12, or Zodiak, or whatever else it is called.

          1. ACTIVEGUARDIAN

            From wikipedia, a sometimes useful source.

            >>>”In 1958, a military-issues physics summer study program named Project 137 was launched by physicists John Archibald Wheeler, Eugene Wigner, and Oskar Morgenstern. Participants included Murph Goldberger, Kenneth M. Watson, Nick Christofilos, and Keith Brueckner.

            Out of that program came the idea of a permanent institution for advanced scientific research, a proposed National Defense Institute, on behalf of the Department of Defense. Wheeler was offered such a position by DARPA’s Herb York but turned it down, having put in the effort to establish Project 137. Murph Goldberger also turned down the request.

            However, in December 1959 Marvin Stern, Charles H. Townes, Keith Brueckner, Kenneth M. Watson, and Marvin Leonard Goldberger met in Los Alamos where several of them had been working on nuclear-rocket research and launched JASON as an ongoing summer study program, with financial and administrative support supplied by the Institute for Defense Analyses. In the early 1960s, JASON had about 20 members. By the end of the decade it had grown to over 40 members, with close ties to the President’s Science Advisory Committee. In the early 1970s the backing institution for JASON was changed from IDA to SRI.[15]”<<<

          I think it was indeed Hillary Clinton who said UAP first to the masses on a late night interview show. When she was running in 2016.

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks for getting back to me. You and I have something in common: we both celebrated our wonderful wives’ birthday on the 21st. I hope Tracey had a happy birthday, and was able to pull her workaholic husband away from his desktop long enough to share some quality, non- extraterrestrial, time together.

    Anyhow, with respect to possible other reasons why the TTSA was guided by the NSE towards limited disclosure: what did you have in mind? Let’s discus.

    D.A.

  12. D.A.

    I am not familiar with the JASON group. I brought them up only because I came across 2 technical reports in the Defence Technical Information Center (DTIC) while doing an unrelated literature search. One of the reports was a technical paper on the use of High Frequency Gravitational Waves (HFGW) for communication applications written by Transportation Sciences Corporation (TSC) for the Bigelow Aerospace Corporation, which was published in the DTIC around the same time Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS) was collecting white papers on advanced aerospace propulsion technologies for AAWSAP. Please note the word “Transportation” in TSC’s name. The second report was prepared by JASON to “evaluate” the technical merit of TSC’s HFGW concepts after they (JASON) were officially briefed on the concepts by another company called GravWave LLC. The JASON report and TSC paper were contemporaneously published in the DTIC. The relationship between TSC and GravWave is unclear, but apparently the two organizations are closely associated. I have not read completely through either report yet, but at first blush I found them interesting for the following reasons:

    1)Though both papers (TSC and JASON) were marked as unclassified, one of them–I believe the JASON report–was officially marked for official government distribution only. I’ll need to double check to make sure which one (or possibly both) was marked for limited distribution, but I believe it was only the JASON report, which would make sense because the TSC paper was specifically marked for unlimited distribution. What made the distribution markings even more confusing is the fact that TSC had stated in the preamble to their report submission that the JASON report was in fact distributed to the public and that it was reported on by various news outlets. Notwithstanding the ambiguous distribution information, coming across limited distribution markings on a technical document is not too unusual in and of itself, but so far it is the only unclassified report I came across in DTIC marked as such, so even if it isn’t classified–meaning that its public dissemination would not create harm to our national security–someone within the ODNI (the office who sponsored the JASON report) felt it was something important enough that it should not be shared with just anyone–even though it apparently was.

    2) I didn’t come across any other Bigelow related papers published in DTIC despite the fact that several other papers were submitted to Bigelow for the AAWSAP program around the same time. They may be in the DTIC system–I just didn’t come across any during my search, but I’ll check again. They also might all be classified, and therefore unpublished, but that seems very unlikely given that they had already been given to the press. I found it interesting that the one Bigelow-related report I did find involved of all things gravitational waves, which as we all know, was alleged by Bob Lazar to be the technology used for the propulsion system used in the UFO he was working on at S-4. This is likely just a coincidence, but if it’s not, then it would mean that despite the relatively large number of papers submitted to Bigelow for AAWSAP-BAASS, the one paper deemed worthy enough to be published in the DTIC, and to have been peer reviewed by JASON, involved the application of gravitational waves.

    3)Though the TSC paper was centered on the use of HFGW for communication purposes, it also listed propulsion and displacement of space objects, and interplanetary navigation, among other things, as potential applications of the technology. Remember the word “Transportation” is the first word in TRC’s name, not communication.

    4) HFGW based communication, if plausible, would certainly explain SETI’s failure to detect ET communications using radio telescopes. And if ET communications were in fact GW based, could it be possible that SETI is aware of it as well, but chose to continue using radio-based telescopes for a reason, such as plausible deniability? If I recall correctly Seth Shostek is not a big proponent of the ET hypothesis when it comes to UFOs despite working for a group who’s entire mission objective is to detect ET communication signals…albeit 100% unsuccessfully. Even the WOW signal wasn’t theirs. Someone is giving SETI a lot of money for doing absolutely nothing.

    5)The JASON report, itself, was apparently tantamount to a modern-day version of the Condon Report in that its primary purpose appears to have been to simply “swamp gas” HFGW theory and the scientific reasoning presented by TSC (and/or GravWave LLC) based on invalid rationale, specious reasoning, and calculated omissions, despite the fact that the individuals authoring the TSC report were eminently qualified in the subject matter of HFGW–likely more so than the group of disparate subject matter experts comprising the JASON group. The TSC refuted the findings of the JASON report in writing, and accused JASON of having based their criticism on preconceived and misplaced opinions using the invalid application of a known GW effect on a specific type of detector that was unrelated to the HFGW concept presented in the TSC paper, indicating an allegiance on the part of the JASON group to a specific agenda aimed at discrediting the potential application of HFGW theory out of hand without proper scientific vetting. The questions are why, and for whom?

    Again, I haven’t read through either of the reports thoroughly, but if any of the criticisms TSC had with the JASON report are in fact valid, then the report clearly has all the earmarks of having been a hatchet job on the part of the JASON group for someone within the ODNI.

    Just my humble opinion.

    PS: Has any further information been provided on the most recent cattle mutilations in Texas?

    One more note regarding DTIC paper/report distribution classifications; they are technically unrelated to government security classifications; however, the reports can be assigned a security classification during the official review process, which will ultimately restrict their distribution. The wider an author requests a paper or report to be disseminated, the more stringent the review process becomes and the more concurrences are needed to obtain approval for that level of distribution, which slows down the publishing process considerably and opens the paper up to more scrutiny. Of course, requesting public distribution, which is the widest form of distribution, triggers the most scrutiny and longest lead time for publication.

    If an author wanted to get a paper published in the DTIC as quickly as possible with as little scrutiny as possible, then requesting the most limited distribution makes publication of the paper that much easier and quicker, especially if the author were trying to fast track the report for a specific audience within the DOD or IC. The fact that one of the reports I came across had been marked for limited distribution may just mean that the author, or the official sponsor of the author’s report, wanted the report published as quickly as possible for a particular audience. For example, if the JASON group, or more specifically their ODNI sponsor, wanted their peer review report criticizing TSC’s HFGW theory to be published in DTIC as soon as possible, which in this case was only a matter of a couple months (which is lightning fast), then they would have requested the most limited distribution possibly when submitting the report. And if the audience they were targeting with their criticism of TSC’s HFGW theory was…say another organization within the IC, like the DIA, then requesting the most limited form of distribution was necessary in order to ensure that the JASON report got out to its intended audience as quickly as possible, and concomitantly with, if not ahead of, the TSC paper.

    I’m not saying that is what happened. At this point I’m not even 100% sure which of the reports had the limited distribution classification marking. I’m just saying it’s something for the most cynical minds to consider; that’s all. Furthermore, the people involved in AAWSAP-BAASS would have surely been briefed on the findings of the JASON group’s report well ahead of its official publication anyway. The report’s publication simply added weight to the group’s findings, whether they are valid or not. And as we all know, within the scientific community (SC) publication can sometimes be as important as, and sometimes even more important than, fact–depending on the agenda.

    Richard,

    I’m not sure if you continue looking at new comments made in older threads, but I have one more thing to say on this topic, and then I promise to shut up.

    I actually didn’t watch or listen to any of the UAP hearing, just what you’ve summarized in this show. Frankly, I won’t watch or read anything any of these guys put out for public consumption. With that said, I can’t quite get a bead on this Kirkpatrick guy. First I see headlines popping up all over my browser for articles suggesting that he and a Harvard astrophysicist (I assume Loeb) speculate that some of the UAPs might be ET drones, and then this nonsense comes along. Clearly, the online articles are nothing more than click and bait pablum, but without ever being baited into clicking on them, I assumed there was some glimmer of truth to them in that Kirkpatrick may have at least intimated at some point that he was open to the idea; however, based on what you’ve presented here about the most recent UAP shit show, he’s far from open to the idea. Moreover Kirkpatrick appears to be nothing more than an abject liar–a bad one at that, and one who openly insults the intelligence of not just the American people, but that of all the Naval airmen and crewmen, who’ve had the courage to come forward about what they’ve witnessed–at a time when the UFO stigma still had a choke hold over open discourse and their reputations–to discus what they knew about the publicly released UAP videos, which the Pentagon authenticated as real, and admitted they couldn’t explain.

    At 10:38 into your show, you quoted that this asshole actually stated there was “…no credible evidence thus far of extraterrestrial activity, offworld technology, or objects that defy the known laws of physics.“ Wait…what? First of all, the people who hired this idiot need to be fired immediately, right along with this ass-clown–I don’t care what box of Cracker Jacks this card-carrying Mensa reject pulled his PhD out of. This guy either doesn’t understand the definition of the word evidence, or doesn’t understand that eyewitness testimony (especially from highly credible individuals), videos, and electronic sensor data recorded from numerous cutting edge U.S. military assets are absolutely considered “credible evidence”, and of the highest order. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be used for making life and death combat decisions. This line-towing bureaucrat either doesn’t know the difference between “evidence” and “proof”, or is just stupid enough to assume that his target audience doesn’t. Simply put, if there were no evidence that the UAP phenomena was other worldly in nature, then we wouldn’t be sitting here right now writing about UAP hearings. Regarding the notion that there is no “evidence of objects that defy the known laws of physics”: well, either this dolt needs to take a few classes on the known laws of physics, or he needs to divulge what he, and a select number of others, might actually know about the “known” laws of physics that apparently the rest of the world does not know, because none of the characteristics that these UAP display, (which have been conveniently categorized as the “Five Observables” by the very people who initiated the UAP soft-disclosure effort that lead to the creation of the very organization he heads) adhere to any of our known laws of physics. This isn’t bullshit; it’s fact.

    And regarding the notion that our open and honest government has no evidence of ET activity, or offworld technology: the reality of the matter is the only “evidence” we truly do NOT have is that the UAP phenomenon involves “terrestrial” activities using “on-world” technology despite the preponderance of highly credible, and well documented, rock-solid EVIDENCE that the phenomenon has been occurring with utter impunity in our skies and in our waters for decades, if not for centuries or millennia. Again, if there was no “evidence” that the UAP phenomenon was other-worldly in nature, and/or used offworld technologies that are beyond our current level of understanding, then I wouldn’t be sitting here wasting my time talking about it, and right now you would be getting ready to retire from the University of Rochester’s history department.

    As always, just my humble opinion.

      Hi DA, First, yes I always review all comments before they are approved, no matter how old the thread is. Secondly, I agree with your assessment and you definitely gave me a laugh or two with how you expressed it! I would only add in support that I think we are long past the point in which we can trust anything that comes out of the Pentagon bureaucracy on … well, pretty much anything I can think of.

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks for the reply. After looking back at my last comment, I can see how I might have been a little harsh on Kirkpatrick. Perhaps I should have taken the high road by putting more of a positive spin on his nonsensical comments, but covering a turd with roses only makes for a shitty smelling bouquet.
