The wall of denial and ridicule that has prevented the truth about what the world’s governments really knows about UFOs now contains large cracks and is likely to collapse at any moment. It has been in place for about 80 years but the time has now come for it to be removed.
There is now a wealth of information and data from credible sources backed up by recordings on video, FLIR, thermal, and the best radar available.
A few years ago, the US Navy changed its guidance on the reporting of unidentified aerial phenomena to the extent that it now encourages pilots and weapons officers to report, without any risk of their careers being undermined by speaking up.
On Aug. 4, 2020, Deputy Secretary of Defense David L. Norquist approved the establishment of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force (UAPTF). The Department of the Navy, under the cognizance of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, will lead the UAPTF.US Navy press release, August 14 2020
The Congressional hearing of May 2022, the first on this subject in over 50 years, contained indicators that there was a lot more to be said about the phenomenon. It was tantalisingly close but frustrating in that they didn’t discuss the best footage that is in the public domain and confined the really interesting discussions to private hearings.
The legislation that is now being drafted and submitted for changes in the US laws, would not only protect whistleblowers and anyone else from testifying about their first hand accounts, but also compels them to do so. These are highly significant indicators of the bipartisan push for full disclosure.
Now That We Agree They Exist, What Next?
In the past couple of years we passed the point at which UFOs and other forms of UAP were accepted as a reality. The question is no longer, “Do they exist?”. The questions now are:
- What are they?
- What are they doing?
- How do they work?
- Are they a threat?
- Who or what is operating them?
- What can we learn from them?
None of these questions presupposes they are extraterrestrial but the possibility has not been ruled out. It has also been suggested that they are from another time as opposed to another place other than Earth. The uninformed may scoff at these ideas but those at the forefront of physics and cosmology who at least appreciate what little is known of the quantum world are not so dismissive, even if most of them do remain silent to protect their positions and careers.
Distraction & Diversion
There is a strong possibility that you’re not aware of what’s going on and what’s about to happen in the world of UFOs and UAP. Our lives are filled with distractions and it’s not getting any easier. There is so much noise and mental or emotional clutter that just finding time for quiet contemplation of any subject is becoming increasingly difficult.
After your domestic, commercial/employment, and social responsibilities, you probably have little time left to think about anything else. The media pumps out one doom and gloom story after another.
The current and recent news stories keep everyone distracted and diverted.
- The Climate Crisis. This is the evergreen scare of the modern age. When we’re not being told that we’re going to burn, drown, or freeze to death, they’re telling us how we have to restrict our lives to ‘combat’ the ‘threat’.
- The Energy Crisis. This is the big topic of the moment and its knock-on effect on economies is generating most of the anxiety.
- Health Scares. Most recently Covid-19 but there will be another one soon, you can count on it. Monkeypox is lurking in the wings but won’t become the main scare without more scaremongering.
- Wars. Most recently Ukraine (though, have you noticed how it’s gradually fading from the news? Syria and Yemen are barely mentioned. Meanwhile, Afghanistan is once again under Sharia Law enforced by the Taliban.
- Current Affairs. Political scandals, the trans debate and other ideologies competing for your attention. It goes on and on.
- Social Media. Social media’s business model is to distract and addict, and it does it very well. How many hours do you spend scrolling each week?
After the international and domestic news channels have covered these subjects and depressed you, the local news is ready to take its moment to remind us of all the crime, corruption, and personal tragedies that have occurred, just in case you weren’t feeling demoralised enough after watching the main news.
But if you can look up at the skies, day or night, strange things are happening. Drag your attention away from news and social media to watch and listen to what’s happening in the world of UFOs.
Aviation and UFOs
By definition, aviation and UFOs are inextricably linked. The pilots of World War II, both Axis and Allies, returned to base with reports of foo fighters, each believing the other side had developed some secret and superior new technology.
It was civilian pilot Kenneth Arnold who gave us the term ‘flying saucer’ after his close encounter in 1947, and ever since then it has been the recreational, commercial, and military pilots who have been at the forefront of the UFO phenomenon, as well as their colleagues and counterparts in air traffic control.
Countless airline pilots have witnessed UFO sightings but the vast majority remained silent for fear of the inevitable doubt cast upon their ability to fly safely. The same can be said for air traffic controllers.
Military pilots have faced the same dilemma for years but now they are stepping forward and are being heard. They have become the most reliable witnesses because their sightings are corroborated by the data from the aircraft carriers and support ships in their fleets.
UFOs Through The Years
In ancient history UFOs were described and depicted in the language and symbolism prevalent at the time. From the Biblical depictions of Ezekiel’s wheel to the paintings of the Middle Ages showing circular disks shining down beams of light.
During the 19th Century, the accounts from eye-witnesses were of flying ships (airships), and in the latter half of the 20th Century the UFOs took on the appearance of disks and saucers that gleamed like the hubcaps on the white-walled wheels of shiny new cars.
In the first two decades of the 20th Century the UFOs and UAP have morphed again, and once again it is the pilots who are giving us the most vivid accounts, particularly the pilots of the US Navy.
The latest version of UAP are tic tac shaped, as reported by Cmdr David Fravor, Lt Cmdr Alex Dietrich and Lt Ryan Graves, among other US Navy personnel and other military personnel from other nations.
As human technology has evolved, more and more sightings and detections have occurred. It begs the question, are there more UFOs appearing now or are we seeing what has already been there because we are better at detecting them?
To any newcomer to this fascinating subject it’s like pulling out into the traffic in Naples during the rush hour. You can be carried along on a journey to a destination that wasn’t quite where you originally intended to go, and it can be an alarming experience.
The People To Follow
There are several people speaking publicly on this subject that are worth paying attention to due to either direct or indirect experience of the phenomena, the investigations, and the whistleblowers who have stepped forward.
Below is a short list that is by no means exhaustive. Others will have their own favourites but these are the people who have caught my attention.
I tend to stick to people who post online using their own name and who are willing to be interviewed. There may be good reasons why some need to remain anonymous but it’s just too much work trying to distinguish them from the wannabes and trolls who also post anonymously.
Opinions among the #UFOTwitter and #UAPTwitter followers on Twitter will vary. Personal likes and dislikes distract people from the ultimate goal of the truth. Egos get in the way of it too, but these are people that seem to me to have the contacts and experience to speak knowledgeably on the subject.
People in the Know
Lue Elizondo – Former head of AATIP has since spent the last year or two giving countless interviews about what he knows. He is still bound by NDAs which he adheres to rigidly but even so, his insights are compelling. Former member of the TTSA. Follow him on Twitter.

His website also contains some interesting dialogues and analysis from the dissections of what has been announced by the military, NASA, etc.
The Five Observables
The five observables were first mentioned publicly by Luis Elizondo. They help to distinguish UAP from other aerial phenomena.
In plain English, if it can accelerate from nought to hypersonic speeds in the blink of an eye, fly from space, through the atmosphere, and into the water and back again, do all kinds of hard and instant turns, and do all that without showing any kind of propulsion system or exhaust when viewed on thermal or infrared cameras, then that’s a genuine UAP.
- Anti-gravity: The UAP are able to fly without any visible means of propulsion i.e. jet engine, piston engine, rocket engine, or electric motor.
- Instant acceleration: They are able to accelerate from a fixed position to hypersonic speed instantaneously.
- Hypersonic speed without signatures: They travel at hypersonic speeds with no heat signatures and no sonic booms.
- Low observability: They are able to avoid detection. They are sometimes visible on radar but not visible to the naked eye, for example.
- Transmedium travel: Some have been observed travelling into Earth’s atmosphere from space, through the atmosphere, and into the ocean with no apparent difficulty or change in movement when moving from one medium to another.

Ross Coulthart and Bryce Zybel in conversation with each other
Ross and Bryce are back, explain where they’ve been, and dive into three deep subjects: First: new language from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence that may grant immunity for potential witnesses not only in government but in private aerospace. Also: Is Gary Nolan the new Lue Elizondo? The Stanford professor has been raising his profile in the UAP community, and has granted Ross a wide-ranging and shocking interview (which we’ll play in a later episode). Finally, a discussion that only begins to tackle the subject: how will we change in a post-disclosure world — after most of the world acknowledges that we are not alone?
A Short History Of UFO/UAP
In this series, journalist M J Banias takes you on a quick review of the key characters, many of whom are mentioned above, who have been instrumental in initiating, generating, and guiding us to disclosure during the past few years.
Why They Are Not Drones
Many people would like to easily explain away UAP as being ‘just drones, probably from a foreign power’. There are several problems with this argument:
- Drones are comparatively slow in contrast to the speed of UAP.
- Drones are not capable of transmedium travel.
- Drones have a distinct signature when viewed on IR or radar.
- Drones are not capable of cloaking themselves.
- Drones are not capable of instant acceleration.
In other words, they don’t display any of the flying characteristics described in the five observables.
Footnote: The Abyss
Does James Cameron’s 1989 film The Abyss hold a clue as to the type of intelligence that may be at the bottom of our deepest oceans? It has been suggested that UFOs are not from out there in deep space (although they fly there) but orginate from here on Earth.
