Dr. Chris Cogswell, from the Astonishing Research Corps’ Delphos Ring Investigation, May 2016

“There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence.  And I spent millions and millions and millions – I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent on this subject.” 
– Robert Bigelow of Bigelow Aerospace and Skinwalker Ranch, on 60 Minutes, May 2017.
 
 
 

Possible location where two Navy F/A-18F Super Hornet pilots on a routine training mission, Cmdr. David Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Jim Slaight encountered unidentifiable craft that behaved like no known objects.  

 

Background:

How "credible" does an eye-witness have to be before their account of an Unidentified Flying Object is taken seriously?  Whom would you think is the most credible sort of witness for this type of impossible craft, aside from the beings or forces that made them?  How about an elite jet fighter pilot from the US Navy, highly trained to identify every known aerial threat – known to a conventional military, of course.  Tonight, we sit down again for Part Two with our friend Rob Kristofferson, from the Our Strange Skies podcast to discuss in detail the eye-witness report and related consequences of David Fravor, USN Ret., former Commanding Officer of Fighter Squadron VFA-41, who along with his Weapons Systems Officer Lt. Cmdr. Jim Slaight engaged a target that behaved like nothing they could imagine.  After hearing about Fravor's account, you just might start to believe that "Secret Machines" do indeed exist... and your next thought will be, "...well then, who, or what is controlling them?"  Get ready for some "Soft Disclosure" everyone.

“I’m not embarrassed or ashamed or sorry I got this thing going, I think it’s one of the good things I did in my congressional service.  I’ve done something that no one has done before.” 
– Former US Congressman Harry Reid, who, the day before the New York Times story broke, Tweeted, “The Truth is Out There.”

Background:

The term "Disclosure" in the UFO community generally refers to the long-awaited event when the government, specifically the U.S. Government, finally tells the world that UFOs exist, along with everything they know about extraterrestrials, or so enthusiasts of the topic would hope.  While we wouldn't suggest holding your breath until "Full Disclosure" happens, there has been an interesting, recent development worth noting.  On December 16, 2017, the New York Times published a curious article titled, "Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. Program."  Apart from the mild surprise that such a serious publication as the New York Times would bother running with any story that would give consideration to such a "preposterous" idea as UFOs being real, is the bigger surprise that from 2007 until 2012, $22 million dollars of U.S. taxpayer money was spent annually on something called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program.  Although funding for this program officially ceased in 2012, it was also revealed that the program still exists and continues to investigate credible reports of possible UFO encounters.  Join us tonight as we sit down with friend, collaborator and fellow podcaster Rob Kristofferson, host of his own show called Our Strange Skies as we discuss the significance of a major revelation that there is a serious military effort to investigate what many believe is Science Fiction, but what some "in the know" think may be a threat against which we have no defense.
