The Unsatisfactory AARO Hearing

By | April 19, 2023

Hi Everyone,

I watched the AARO hearing today, like many of you. I thought it was quite unsatisfactory. I was nearly going to do a quick livestream about it tonight but wanted a bit more time to prepare something more appropriate, so expect something from me about this tomorrow. My response is essentially prepared now but it will be better to get this out in the morning.

    After a while, it becomes irritating to watch all the UFO Podcasters get excited about these hearings, then act disappointed when there’s no subsequent disclosure.

    Richard, you are one of the few exceptions; thank you for that. This secret ain’t never coming out voluntarily, especially by the government. So silly for the UFO experts to think otherwise.

    One could not expect anything else. A bit like the politicians and management in the public sector. They have their agenda. Every time you believe in a change for the “good”, it is constantly mistreated in bureaucratic nonsense. But you also mention it yourself, Richard, in “Secret space ufos: Apollo 1-11”. There are things that we know, and things that they will keep secret. A thick red line has already been drawn!

    Pffff the blogisphere was running around with its hair on fire for last 2 weeks on this. Given that the past is often and indication of the future one could easily predict that what would transpire was what did… I did’t bother watching it and I probably not listen to too much of the post non-event blather…..


    As of 8:15 a.m. CDT, on 20 April 2023, the only video I could find on yootoob had only 10,219 views. Apparently folks don’t even know the hearing happened, or worse, they don’t care enough to watch it. So now we know UFOs are real, but the government op has accomplished its goal– hardly anyone follows it or cares. We’re all too focused on “the dominant paradigm” propaganda and lies that we shove in our own faces.

    Here is a one hour and eleven minute video of the hearing, placed on yootoob by The Washington Examiner. The hearing was apparently not recorded or uploaded by ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, FOX News, etc.

    Some singing woman in weird clothes and makeup, that I never heard of, reaching 5 months sober is the big news today.

    Link to Senate Armed Services Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee hearing (“AARO hearing”).

    I do not waste my time on this. It’s like COVID, the evidence is there, yet we continue to have discussion and play games with the reality.

    Unfortunately, I expect nothing less from these people. I have zero faith in the government’s ability to tell the truth about…anything really.

    Separately, James Fox is going to be on Joe Rogan’s show. I asked him to drop your name to Joe while he’s there. You’d be a great guest!


    Gillibrand sounds like a 4th grader doing a bad reading of a school report. She could use some practice.

    She also looks unhealthy.

    Dr. Kirkpatrick? A stuffed shirt. He also reads sometimes like this is a school assignment that he just wants to get through, and doesn’t really care about the grade. Some of his best (worst) lines:

    “The UAP challenge is more an operational and scientific issue than it is an intelligence issue.” That’s a nice way to trivialize things and discourage thought. “Let us handle things. We have guns, charts and graphs! We already know what IT is, but we’re not going to tell you Shogunate peasants.”

    “AARO’s job is to turn UAP into SEP; Somebody Else’s Problem.” You know, I am constantly amazed by the current administration’s people saying things right out loud. I’m sure they don’t mean to admit it, but this is blatant government buck-passing at its finest. I think we’re going to see quite a few balloons, plastic bags, birds, ice crystals, mis-identified conventional aircraft, unusual weather phenomena, poorly understood (but good enough for government work!) geo-electrical discharges, atmospheric inversions and thrown pie plates. Oh, and marsh gas! Don’t forget the marsh gas! Hear that whirring sound? Why, it’s J. Allen Hynek!

    Yeah, they held a hearing, and I’m sure they’re very proud of it. Most of the former UFOlogists will decry it but then they’ll get right back on the government bandwagon, selling the snake oil of “disclosure” when that’s the last thing that’s actually happening. Most of the UFOlogical community has turned into Millennial cultists who BELIEVE that no matter how wrong their prophets are, and how long they get strung along and their tax money stolen… they’re cultists. They BELIEVE. They BELIEVE that in spite of 70 years of lies, disinformation campaigns and and harassment, that the government is now a bunch of morally upright boy scouts who will tell us the REAL TRUTH any day now!

    Many were always like this, but now it’s rampant cultism in a destructive blind-faith fundamentalist government UFO-religion.

      All of the new podcasters out there that i only know about because of the forum……………..They are not just ‘cultists’ they are ops people and i find it insultingly obvious.

    Richard, What is this committee AARO submit their analysis to? I thought they would report to congress but not some ill defined outside group. If it is a MAJIC sub-committee then there is something even they don’t know and after all these years no less. -A

      Yes, that was something in the hearing that really caught my attention. I don’t know anything about this group. It may not be quite as nefarious as it may appear, but I have no idea.

  9. SunPower

    I didn’t mean nefarious necessarily, I’m not even sure they were called MAJIC. Whatever they’d be called, they’d be the very definition of the deep state since no one within the elected state would know anything about them either. I got a brief impression when you mentioned them that there is more to this than meets the eye. Also, AARO might be looking for something more specific on their behalf (USOs?) (bases?). I’d like to be a fly on the wall when they’re discussing AARO reports.
