Yesterday was an amazing day in many ways. I was stuck out in the shopping throngs when the news broke and was not able to start dissecting the release until hours later. I do have to credit Tom DeLonge and To The Stars. He promised something big and I think they can check that box.
To see the New York Times, followed by most other major mainstream news outlets, running with this sliver of Disclosure is awesome! For much of my adult life, I’ve wanted to feel that vindication when something broke that cannot be easily dismissed. It felt good! Hopefully, this has opened some eyes in the media, the uninformed masses, and the scientific community on the reality and the importance of this topic. That’s immensely positive and to applauded.
That said, as with any other topic, emotional responses are not the ones that lead to wisdom and discernment. It’s not jealousy or sour grapes to question the quality of the information, the “Why Now” aspect, and what next?
OK, we had this amazing moment. Now what? Does that mean Matt Drudge and Wolf Blitzer are suddenly going to be running stories about the 70 years of UFO cover up? Does that mean that Neil De Grasse Tyson and Richard Dawkins are going cease being skeptics on the topic and put their reputations on the line to support deeper research? Does this mean US intelligence agencies have bought off on taking this public or that this small group has declared themselves in open rebellion against the secrecy? Can we expect that the most highly manipulated and secretive topic in the intelligence world is suddenly going to be shot straight because a video and some little side program are acknowledged?
Here are my notes from the release. The video is jaw-dropping, no doubt.
Watch it, if you haven’t seen it.
However, it’s still obviously edited. As always, the program that was reported is claimed to have been ended. They spent $22 million over five years, the cost of one fighter jet, and determined there were other priorities. Nothing about what was discovered in the five years of the program was revealed, save the video.
Finally, the Harry Reid story is interesting. Even as majority leader of the senate, you don’t decide what’s black budget. Black budget, by definition, is money spent without congressional oversight. I appreciate Senator Reid’s interest in the topic and using his position to the extent he could to push the research. That said, this project is peanuts compared to what intelligence agencies must be spending, and still spending, on this issue. The media tied this up in a nice bow. There’s disclosure. Three former senators funded some research and it’s now over so go back about your business.
I’m not going to criticize DeLonge or his team. They may have more to deliver and that will be WELCOMED! That said, we have a media with a track record of misleading us reporting on activities of agencies with a track record of misleading us. The wise approach is to deal with that dynamic with discernment.
We haven’t seen the backlash against this and there will be one. We haven’t seen how this information will be used. Is it to be used to militarize us in preparation to fight the evil aliens? There have been aspects of that message coming from DeLonge and his team. Let’s not kid ourselves. Many of the people involved have spent their lives with a mindset of identifying and disabling enemies. Is that to be the approach we follow because they gave us the candy we wanted?
Let’s do our happy dance. Then it’s the time to double down on demanding transparency and truth and using our collective wisdom, not the Pentagon’s, to decide how to deal with a reality that got a lot harder to deny yesterday.
Keep on seeking YOUR truth!
