New Youtube show for tonight — as always, this will premiere at 8 p.m. Eastern time. I have adapted the main points of my recent Fireside Chat Podcast for tonight’s public YouTube presentation. Even so, I have a few new points planned.
By the way, for the UFO geeks out there (which I know are many!), this is the 70th anniversary of the 1952 Washington DC UFO flyovers. And something I will be discussing tonight: after all these years, we are almost in the EXACT same place regarding “openness” on the discussion of UFOs as we were back then. After all, General John Samford gave a large press conference in the aftermath of those sightings — and keep in mind he did not dismiss all the reports (he merely lied about the DC events as weather phenomenon). But he mentioned that many such reports, despite seeming incredible, came from credible people. But he also essentially said, “we’ve got this — nothing to be concerned about.”
Does that sound familiar? Fast forward seventy years to Ronald Moultrie claiming that the Pentagon can identify and mitigate any of these UAP. Amazing.
I’ll have a few other things to say and hope to see you there.
“If this is an op, then why has there been no follow-up in the media? Why?”
History doesn’t repeat itself, but ain’t it funny how often it rhymes?
1960 Fleet Adm. Hillenkoetter, first DCI and CIG chief, wrote to Congress, as reported in The New York Times: “Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.” The Air Force quashes Congressional hearings in 1961 and the press develops amnesia.
1967 Phenomena recognized in Congress and turned over to U of Colorado and Condon whitewash. Press rolls over like walruses.
1975 Church Committee limited hangout and document dump. Records released of high-level acknowledgement by Generals, Admirals and Agency chiefs going back to 1940s. The UFO incidents at missile silos and weapons storage areas. Barely noticed by press even 10 years later.
The press can be relied on to do their mockingbird best and they do so even today. So-called brainy & cultured NPR and PBS, “the ideas networks”, haven’t touched the subject with a 10 foot pole.
If it walks like an op, talks like an op and quacks like an op… it’s probably an op. From their point of view, the situation rates an op, especially based on history. Where’s the op? Right in front of our noses.
I must compliment you on your bullet-point list at 30:24. It’s excellent, and worth sharing.
The possible Fallback Positions Timeline at this point in the video is likewise excellent and worth sharing.
“What’s their motivation?”
I think we can find their motivation in Lambros Callimahos’ monograph UFO HYPOTHESIS AND SURVIVAL QUESTIONS. It’s only 7 pages, so READ IT DAMMIT, EVERYONE !!! I also suggest downloading your own copy as it very well may go away.
From a standpoint of cultural history, Callimahos’ arguments make good sense, but now that we are LIVING his cultural hypothesis, I no longer see it from the executive summary level of historical hindsight. I see it from the level of the Japanese citizenry, who were denied trade and cultural contact and then had only carefully controlled (i.e. very little) contact with the west, for generations.
The UFO decision-makers see a carefully controlled and very slow transition, over generations, to be the best way for them to hold on to their power and money. I don’t think they really care a fig for the cohesiveness of the culture.
Now go and read the Callimahos monograph, dammit, and note that his name is not on it– it’s redacted in what looks like black crayon and still is. It was known to the community but I don’t think it was confirmed by NSA until my 1992 FOIA suit against NSA for the Yeates Affidavit. I could be wrong and apologize if I have denied someone that credit.
It’s only 7 double-spaced pages.
Agreed that the Callimahos paper is anyways worth reading. From the late 1960s by a man considered an absolute legend within the NSA itself.
Great show Richard! While watching you timeline I was reminded that some of the comments last week were suggesting that the disclosure advances that occurred during the tRump administration were somehow the result of the that crew. I’d like to suggest exactly the opposite.
It strikes me as just a little disingenuous for T supporters to be taking credit for things that were clearly a long time in planning and in the works and underway well before that crowd got into power. It is akin to a new Administration taking credit or being blamed for booms or busts that were years in the making and which happened to land on their watch.
Let us remember that Tom DeLonge and the group he gathered under the ToTheStars (full disclosure, I am investor in that) umbrella is largely to be credited with the gains we saw in the disclosure realm and that much of the careful planning for that and the preparatory ground work was underway well before and originated during the Obama administration. It was likely largely due to Podesta and Clintons behind the scenes support (as proved by wikileaks emails) for what they thought would develop into much more when they were in the White House. As we all know that didn’t happen and those plans … as well as DeLonge’s … were derailed.
Remember, DeLonge’s first book (Sekret machines – quite good actually) was released in 2017 and that obviously was several years in development and for which ALL the “research” and disclosures he used as a basis, happened during Obama.
I would also suggest that the widespread corruption and incompetence of the Trump administration is what allowed old forces to regain control. Had we had 4 years of Clinton with a likely Podesta Chief of Staff we would probably have seen a lot more than we are at this point. There were certainly numerous stories of Clinton’s support for disclosure. So… let’s give credit where credit is due and not where it is not. Trump was too busy worrying about his own image and all the trouble he and his corrupt administration got into to worry about disclosure. He just doesn’t have the subtlety and finesse it takes to thread that type of thing through the halls of power.
Could Obama have done more, probably yes, but he unfortunately was a Libran. Libra’s like to be liked and tend to sit on the fence and are easily managed by handlers whispering in their ears. So we got what we got.
You made the comment that some of us watch your commentary on their phone, I am one of them. Sadly, some of your visuals are too small to appreciate. I find your statement amusing, delightful and I appreciate your humor when interjected between the seriousness of your comments.
I for one, find your perspective that the toothpaste will be pushed back into the tube correct. Unfortunately, the distractions that are created will be a major factor and the majority of people will be far too busy “adjusting” to the hardships we must endure and will not have the luxury of entertaining the possibilities of an Alien race haunting us. The “plandemic,” food, water, energy, climate chaos, etc. will be the priority of the average working person. Additionally, I have found people are fed up with the political system and the media. The majority of those I have approached just want to be left alone. Inflation is a huge problem and it is more than speculated the economy is about to explode into chaos with some kind disaster that will make our head spin.
People are not stupid, yet it must be realized few have any idea on how to combat the manufactured nonsense.
I’m sure you’ve seen this by now but thought I’d share in case you hadn’t.

Thanks for your outstanding work!
Thank You Richard 👏🏾, I wish I could get my family,friends ,and coworkers to hear what you are talking about. It goes in one ear and out the other when I bring up the subject about a ufo cover-up,and that has been going on since the 40’s. I am no where near the expert you are in this subject ,but I try my best to talk about topic with people. I have tried to get people to watch documentaries and checkout your website,but they show no interest whatsoever,it is very disappointing. Keep up the great work ☺️
My husband was skeptical until he started watching The Secret of Skin Walker Ranch on the History Channel. Sure, it’s mainstream, drags along, is similar to the annoying Oak Island format, etc., but it does help shed some light on UAPs and other phenomena (portals) from a scientific standpoint. So, now he’s starting to come around and admits that he believes.
Congress isn’t giving up just yet.
