Conspiracy #8: UFOs
UFOs. Not an original topic, but with recent developments over the past few years earning a new discussion. From the thousands of official UFO reports all across the United States alone to the recent released Pentagon UFO videos, there’s a lot more to unpack in relation to what it could mean for the future.
example #1: 180 Day Countdown for UFO Disclosure in COVID Relief Bill
In the 5,593-page coronavirus relief bill recently passed in December, there was an unexpected proposition: a request for the Pentagon to brief Congress on all it knows about unidentified flying objects within 180 days.
“Though not in the text of the law itself, a comment from the Senate intelligence committee, attached to a portion of the package funding intelligence operations, asks the Director of National Intelligence to consult with other top defence officials and spy chiefs to submit a report on “unidentified aerial phenomena” (UAP), the government argot for UFOs, within six months.
The briefing will cover “observed airborne objects that have not been identified” and feature “detailed analysis of unidentified phenomena data collected by: a. geospatial intelligence; b. signals intelligence; c. human intelligence; and d. measurement and signals intelligence”, according to the request.”
Example #2: pentagon ufo videos
The Pentagon UFO videos are select visual recordings of cockpit instrumentation displays from U.S. Navy fighter jets based aboard aircraft carriers USS Nimitz and USS Theodore Roosevelt in 2004, 2014 and 2015. “The three grainy, black and white videos, widely characterized as officially documenting UFOs, were the subject of extensive coverage in the media in 2017. The Pentagon later addressed and officially released the videos in 2020 (13 years after the first of the videos were leaked to the public in 2007.)
Publicity surrounding the videos has prompted a number of explanations, including drones or unidentified terrestrial aircraft, anomalous or artefactual instrument readings, physical observational phenomena (e.g., parallax), human observational and interpretive error, and, as is typical in the context of such incidents, extraordinary speculations of alien spacecraft.
On November 14, 2004, fighter pilot Commander David Fravor of the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group investigated radar indications of a possible target off the coast of southern California.Fravor reported that he saw an object, white and oval like a Tic Tac, hovering above an ocean disturbance. He estimated that the object was about forty feet long.A second wave of fighters, including pilot Lieutenant Commander Chad Underwood, took off from Nimitz to investigate. Unlike Fravor, Underwood’s fighter was equipped with an advanced infrared camera.Underwood recorded the FLIR video, but did not himself see any unusual object.
During 2014–2015, fighter pilots associated with the USS Theodore Roosevelt carrier strike group were operating off the East Coast when they recorded the GIMBAL and GOFAST videos while reporting instrument detections of unknown aerial objects which the pilots were unable to identify.
The videos, featuring cockpit display data and infrared imagery, were initially provided to the press by Luis Elizondo, the former head of Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, the Department of Defense’s investigation. Elizondo had resigned from the Pentagon in October 2017 to protest government secrecy and opposition to the investigation, stating in a resignation letter to Defense Secretary James Mattis that the program was not being taken seriously. In September 2019, a Pentagon spokeswoman confirmed that the released videos were made by naval aviators and that they are “part of a larger issue of an increased number of training range incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena in recent years.” On April 27, 2020, the Pentagon formally released the three videos.” (Wikipedia)
Example #3: rendleshem forest
“In late December 1980, there was a series of reported sightings of unexplained lights near Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England which have become linked with claims of UFO landings. The events occurred just outside RAF Woodbridge, which was used at the time by the United States Air Force (USAF). USAF personnel, including deputy base commander Lieutenant Colonel Charles I. Halt, claimed to see things they described as a UFO sighting.
The occurrence is the most famous of claimed UFO events to have happened in the United Kingdom, ranking among the best-known reported UFO events worldwide. It has been compared to the Roswell UFO incident in the United States and is sometimes referred to as “Britain’s Roswell”.
The UK Ministry of Defence stated the event posed no threat to national security, and it therefore never was investigated as a security matter. Sceptics have explained the sightings as a misinterpretation of a series of nocturnal lights: a fireball, the Orfordness Lighthouse and bright stars.” (Wikipedia) However, respected military official who experienced it first hand say otherwise entirely.
USAF officer Jim Penniston who was present during the incident, described seeing a craft covered in hieroglyphic-like characters. He said the following: “I estimated it to be about three meters tall and about three meters wide at the base. No landing gear was apparent, but it seemed like she was on fixed legs. I moved a little closer… I walked around the craft, and finally, I walked right up to the craft. I noticed the fabric of the shell was more like a smooth, opaque, black glass.”

Example #4: volume of accounts
Just in the last decade alone, there have been over 50 thousand official UFO reportings to date. For such a high number, it seems highly unlikely that we are alone in the universe. What do you think? Let us know below!
