X-Files Final episode

US Covers Up Aliens For 50 Years

"Mitchell, who holds a doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, does not fit easily into the ranks of the UFO fanatics. Although he acts as a consultant to The X Files, the cult television series, he is scornful of "disinformation" about aliens and flying saucers that emanates from the Internet and marginal UFO organisations in America."

"The minority, the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the Church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and make its tool of them."
- Albert Einstein letter to Sigmund Freud, July 30, 1932

"I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark; on the question of government investigations of UFOs. It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it because it’s right; we ought to do it because the American people quite frankly can handle the truth; and we ought to do it because it’s the law."
- John Podesta, former White House Chief of Staff, Oct. 22, 2002 at the National Press Club

    I had only seen a couple episodes of the X-files but I watched the final episode and thought it interesting to note they ended the series on a spiritual note. They said they believed in something bigger than the alien-government conspiracy as Moulder held the Christian crucifix around Sculley’s neck. The Channel 2 10:00pm news here in San Francisco following the program prominently featured a serious story concerning UFOs a.k.a. UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon). Tom Vacar interviewed Linda Connel from NASA’s Aviation Safety Reporting System who admitted that they do accept and compile reports from pilots regarding sightings of phenomenon that have not been explained.  NASA referred Mr. Vacar to former 30 year NASA research scientist and current Chief Scientist Richard Haines of NARCAP.  Mr. Haines acknowledged that about 20-30% of UAPs are unexplained objects that interfere with air safety. Mr. Haines also said he has substantial reason to believe that the US government has been collecting 'sensed' data regarding UAPs and is indeed withholding the data from the public.

Aviation Safety Reporting System,

“A comprehensive review of past ground and airborne reports (radar and aircrew visual) of close encounters with UAP (Haines, 2000) has shown that: (1) A still-unexplained phenomenon does exist and deserves serious scientific study, and (2) U.S. aviation safety could be adversely affected by UAP under certain circumstances. An unfettered, private study of high-quality aviation-related UAP data is in the national interest.”

Public Perception
For more than 50 years, people have observed, reported on, speculated about, investigated, and reviewed the widely recognized UFO phenomenon.

As recently as July 2002, The Washington Post reported that two F-16s from Andrews Air Force Base were scrambled in the skies over Washington after radar detected an unknown aircraft. Military officials said they do not know what the jets were chasing because it quickly disappeared. Events like this reported in the press and media continue to raise questions about the source and nature of these unidentified aerial phenomena.

There is a consensus among most researchers that at least five to ten percent of these unidentified phenomena cannot be explained by natural or artificial causes. Furthermore, because there has been no ongoing independent, empirically based scientific research conducted on unidentified aerial phenomena, no one can explain with objectivity or authority what UFOs are.

    My influence page contains a rational argument and evidence for extraterrestrial influence on human social development.  The material is in some ways similar to the X-files as is my contention that viruses, perhaps all of them are engineered.  My reasoning is based on physical evidence and scientific theory including nanotechnology and Panspermia.

UFOs: What to Do?
For RAND Use Only
George Kocher, 27 November 1968
Those familiar with the UFO literature are aware that reports of sightings did not begin with Arnold's sighting in 1947, but that phenomenology much the same as is reported today can be found in documents going back to the earliest times. Vallee (2) gives a sampling of this; B.L.P. Trench (3) has made a more thorough study and reports on the research of others able to study the original documents.

What was reported? Luminous discs, shields, globes and elongated objects in the sky, sometimes alone, sometimes in large numbers. Occasional descriptions of interactions with the observers are also mentioned, including landings, and seeing and communicating with occupants. The latter events especially were almost always interpreted in a religious context. A recent
"The Baptism of Christ" 1710 by Aert De Gelder example is the repeated appearance of a typical UFO phenomenology at Fatima, Portugal on six successive months in 1917. The October 13 phenomenon was the best reported and was witnessed by a crowd of about 70,000 persons, including a number of scientists, reporters, atheists, and agnostics, as well as faithful Catholics. One of the scientifically curious was Dr. A Garrett of the University of Coimbra.  Rain, which had been falling that day, ceased and the crowd looked up to see the "sun" now visible through the heavy clouds. Professor Garrett wrote,

"...I turned toward this (sun) which was attracting all eyes and I could see it like a disk with a clear cut edge, with a vivid rim, luminous and shining, but without hurting one. The comparison I have heard at Fatima with a disk of dull silver, does not seem to me exact. It was a clearer, more vivid, richer color and with shifting tints like the luster of a pearl. It was not at all like the moon on a clear transparent night, for one saw and felt it like a living star. Nor was it spherical like the moon, nor did it have the same quality of lighter and less light. It looked like a burnished wheel cut out of mother-of-pearl. Nor could it be confused with the sun seen through a fog -- there was no fog... This disc spun dizzily round. It was not the twinkling of a star: it whirled round upon itself with mad rapidity... The sun, preserving the celerity of its rotation, detached itself from the firmament and advanced, blood-red, towards the earth, threatening to crush us with the weight of its vast and fiery mass. These moments made a terrifying impression." (4)

 The relationship of the old phenomenology to religion are discussed by Thomas. (5)

UFOs & Extraterrestrial Life
Americans' Beliefs and Personal Experiences
Prepared for the SCI FI Channel
September 2002

Most Americans Psychologically and Spiritually Prepared for Proof of Extraterrestrial Life
Most Americans appear comfortable with and even excited about the thought of the discovery of extraterrestrial life. Three-quarters of the public claim they are at least somewhat psychologically prepared for the discovery of extraterrestrial life, and nearly half are very prepared.
Government Knows More Than It Is Telling
In the view of many adults (55 percent), the government does not share enough information with the public in general. An even greater proportion (roughly seven in ten) thinks that the government does not tell us everything it knows about extraterrestrial life and UFOs. The younger the age, the stronger the belief that the government is withholding information about these topics.

The Disclosure Project
“The Disclosure Project is a nonprofit research project working to fully disclose the facts about UFOs, extraterrestrial intelligence, and classified advanced energy and propulsion systems. We have over 400 government, military, and intelligence community witnesses testifying to their direct, personal, first hand experience with UFOs, ETs, ET technology, and the cover-up that keeps this information secret.”

Edgar Mitchell: US Covers Up Aliens For 50 Years.
by Tom Rhodes
The Sunday Times - (London)
October 11, 1998
NEW YORK -- There are no little green men on the moon. Edgar Mitchell knows this because in 1971 he became the sixth man to walk on it. He is positive, however, that aliens have landed on Earth.

Mitchell argues that life is almost certain to exist on any other planet with a supportive environment. Some physicists, he points out, now believe it is possible to travel faster than light, even if humble earthlings have yet to achieve it.

He is 90% certain that many of the thousands of UFOs recorded since the 1940s belonged to visitors from another planet. Although some have been delusions and others natural phenonema, too many remain unexplained, he said. "This suggests there are humanoids manning craft which have characteristics not in the arsenal of any nation on earth that we know of. That is very alarming," he said. It was a startling departure for a scientist who, up to now, has been wary of appearing with ufologists widely regarded as cranks. "Until recently I was very cautious about such conferences," Mitchell, 68, admitted before the opening of an annual convention entitled the UFO Experience. "But now I believe there is sufficient circumstantial evidence to warrant a scientific understanding in this area."

Mitchell, who holds a doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, does not fit easily into the ranks of the UFO fanatics. Although he acts as a consultant to The X Files, the cult television series, he is scornful of "disinformation" about aliens and flying saucers that emanates from the Internet and marginal UFO organisations in America.

Mitchell says his research - including conversations with people who have worked in intelligence agencies and military groups - has convinced him that the American government has covered up the truth about UFOs for 50 years. He is trying to persuade Congress to grant his sources immunity to tell "the real story" of events such as the so-called Roswell incident - the alleged crash of a flying saucer in New Mexico in 1947.

"Many of these folks were under high-security clearances, they took oaths and they feel they cannot talk without some form of immunity," Mitchell said. "It takes a brave person to come out on something like this."

Welcome to the Coalition for Freedom of Information Web site.
According to a 2002 Roper poll, 72% of Americans believe the federal government is not telling us everything it knows about UFOs. In keeping with our society's interest in an open government, the independent alliance CFI was formed. Its goals are to support a new research effort into what has come to be known as the UFO phenomenon, as well as to promote more government disclosure about UFOs.

Since 1947, the United States government has put up roadblocks to prevent the release of information it possesses on UFOs. In fact, most UFO researchers believe that significant classified information is being withheld. The Coalition for Freedom of Information seeks to bring together those who have both studied and been exposed to this phenomenon and who believe it to be worthy of further investigation....

For nearly 40 [more than 50] years, the science establishment has ignored the UFO problem, relegating it to the domain of "true believers and mental incompetents" (a.k.a. "kooks and nuts" [according to the former editor of Applied Optics magazine]). Scientists have participated in a "self-cover-up" by refusing to look at the credible and well reported data. Furthermore, some of those few scientists who have studied UFO data have published explanations which are unconvincing or just plain wrong and have "gotten away with it" because most of the rest of the scientific community has not cared enough to analyze these explanations. The general rejection of the scientific validity of UFO sightings has made it difficult to publish analyses of good sightings [in refereed journals of establishment science]. Examples are presented of the scientific-self-cover-up involving erroneous explanations, refusal to look at the data, and rejection of papers for publication. How long will this situation last? Forty [fifty] years is long [too long].

UFOs and the National Security State - Richard M. Dolan

This is a thorough and monumental undertaking. I applaud your effort.” - Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 Astronaut

Commentary: UFOs and the National Security State  - by Joe Firmage
"Because of the developments of science, all countries on Earth will have to unite to survive and to make a common front against attack by people from other planets. The politics of the future will be cosmic, or interplanetary."
– General Douglas Macarthur, October 8, 1955, New York Times

“Are scientists and journalists aware that the chief scientific consultant in the Air Force’s Blue Book study of UFOs later characterized the project as a publicity maneuver to mollify the public, himself convinced by the evidence he saw that genuine, unexplained aerospatial phenomena are in our midst?” - Dr. J. Allen Hynek on camera shortly before his death in 1985

"Unknown objects are operating under intelligent control... It is imperative that we learn where UFOs come from and what their purpose is... Behind the scenes high ranking military officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense." – Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, first Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, public statements in 1960

"The trick would be to describe the project so that, to the public, it would appear a totally objective study, but to the scientific community would present the image of a group of nonbelievers trying their best to be objective but having an almost zero expectation of finding a saucer." - Robert Low, University of Colorado senior administrator, former intelligence officer, and assistant director of the Condon Committee, in a confidential 1966 memo suggesting the approach of the Condon UFO study

"I am convinced that these objects do exist and that they are not manufactured by any nation on Earth." – Air Chief Marshall Lord Dowding, Commander-in-Chief, Royal Air Force Command, London Sunday Dispatch, July 11, 1954
