U.S.: Are UFOs striking back?

U.S.: Are UFOs striking back?

After being missing from media headlines for decades, UFOs seem to be invading again the U.S. A video recorded by the U.S. Navy, which was recently leaked, has put the mysterious spaceships—allegedly crewed by aliens— in the spotlight.

The video, gotten by a documentarist and shared by NBC News, recorded the accurate timing when a non-identified flying object vanished near the California’s coast, near San Diego.

The veracity of the shot was confirmed by the U.S. Department of Defense, who assured the clip was recorded by the U.S. Marine staff and is going to be checked now by the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF), a program created in 2020 to “gather intelligence” on the “nature and origins” of such objects.

According to Telemundo’s report, the video was released days prior to an interview granted by two former Navy pilots in the TV program “60 Minutes” where both confirmed they were assigned the mission to investigate “multiple anomalous aerial vehicles” that descended 80,000 feet in less than a second. The incident took place in front of San Diego, back in 2004.

One of the pilots interviewed by the TV program, Commander Dave Fravor, said he spotted a "little white Tic-Tac-looking object… and it was just kind of moving above the whitewater area, and then disappeared. Seconds later, the USS Princeton reacquired the UAP on its radar. It was approximately 60 miles away.”

The return of UFOs, it seems, is paramount for the U.S. National Security especially if Senator and major Republican representative at the Senate Intelligence Committee, Marco Rubio, urged to taking very this event seriously.

In an interview broadcasted last Sunday, also at CBS’s 60 Minutes, the pro-Trump Senator claimed he was a believer, before the report were issued, unclassified, which will be released by the U.S. Director of National Intelligence and the Secretary of Defense by December.

“There is a stigma on Capitol Hill,” Rubio said in 60 Minutes. “Some of my colleagues are very interested in this topic and some kind of giggle when you bring it up, but I don't think we can allow the stigma to keep us from having an answer to a very fundamental question.”

"I want us to take it seriously and have a process to take it seriously,” Rubio stated. “I want us to have a process to analyze the data every time it comes in”.

"That there be a place where this is catalogued and constantly analyzed, until we get some answers. Maybe it has a very simple answer. Maybe it doesn't."


The lack of reliability to which the anti-Cuban Senator refers to is related to, of course, the manipulation the media and the U.S. secret service have done on the subject.

The best example is the Roswell’s case, or the Roswell UFO incident, which occurred on July 8th 1947, which is today regarded as the beginning of modern ufology.

First, it was said that it was not a flying saucer what fell in Roswell, but the remains of a weather balloon.

Fifty years later, U.S. Army’s reports stated that the crash in New Mexico involved a test flight by the so-called Project Mogul: a top secret plan that used balloons capable of reaching great heights to gather intelligence on the atomic bombs tests carried out by the Soviet Union by means of the sound of explosions.

According to what British writer, researcher, and documentarist Mark Pilkington confirmed to magazine Sputnik Mundo, the great repercussion the case of the alleged alien crash had, provided a model for American intelligence in their future covert, secret operations.

“In the early 1950s the US military was testing a lot of new technologies and it was convenient to disguise them as UFOs. It was a double bluff,” he said.

According to the researcher, the original strategy of the U.S. Air Force consisted on convincing witnesses that they had seen something like the reflect of Venus planet, but later they realized people were more receptive to the myth of flying saucers.

Key executives from Hollywood and mass media such as mogul and film producer Darryl Zanuck or Time Life CEO, Henry Luce, both former members of the Psychological Strategy Board, a committee created in 1951 with the goal of coordinating and planning operations of psychological wars in the first years of the Cold War, were involved in that media “machination.”


But while, as Mark Pilkington states, the issue of sightings of non-identified objects in U.S. was closely related to the Cold War against the Soviet Union, why UFOs are back in the front pages of major media?

Does it have any relation with the “frozen war” the fading American empire has unleashed against Russia and China to maintain military supremacy?

If so, it is very likely we get to know about it, at best, in fifty years or so.

What we do know is that this UFOs thing has its own implications within the domestic policy of the U.S.

It was revealed by the FOX News’ controversial political analyst who has just said that the U.S. Army is more interested in hiring pregnant pilots than in investigating non-identified flying objects.

Speaking about the TV program 60 Minutes, broadcasted on Sunday night on UFOs detected by the U.S. Navy back in 2015, Tucker Carlson, in his Monday monologue, said the Pentagon was too busy giving priority to diversity-inclusion-related initiatives, instead of “perceptible and real threats” posed by non-identified flying objects.

“Oh, UFOs, they’re spooky and kind of funny. Crazy people believe in them. Up until you get to the line. The Pentagon admits it doesn’t know what in the world this is. That’s all you need to know.” And added: “from a national security perspective, that’s a very big problem.”

The presenter also confirmed that the Space Force was geared to do something about the “daily incursions” from mysterious flying objects. But, instead, the newest branch in the U.S. Army was engaged “political purge” wasting the money.

Space Force Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Lohemier was fired after criticizing the government’s “diversity and inclusion” programs as an extension of Marxist ideology that would eventually divide the country, rather than unite it.

And after praising a technology that can do 600 to 700 G-forces, that can fly 13,000 miles an hour, that, that can evade radar and can fly through air and water and possibly space, and oh, by the way, has no obvious signs of propulsion, no wings, no control surfaces and yet still can defy the natural effects of Earth’s gravity, Mr. Carlson questioned:

"Sound like a potential threat? You think? So what has the Pentagon done about it? Well, we don’t know the full story as of tonight. But we don’t know that they’ve done anything about it, and then cover the fact they ignored it by declaring the whole subject classified for decades, then spending the rest of the day thinking about how to bomb Syria again and rid the Marine corps of people who voted for Donald Trump."

With such warnings, seriousness, and concerns hovering around, at least —in my opinion— it is probable that we do not need to wait much to know if UFOs will play any role in the “civil war” dividing this nation between “communists” Democrats and “neo-fascist” Republicans.

No one should doubt for a second that, in a nation ruled by a Congress enclosed by fences and where political absurdity turns fake news into real facts, perhaps an Orson Welles-like influencer emerges to announce the beginning of another War of the Worlds.
