Crystal clarity in the defeat of UFO legislation -- our republic is obsolete
Steve Bassett — great work!
Billy, the U.S. Congress just told us that UFOs represent technology beyond our knowledge. LOL!
U.S. Congress — I've known that for a very long time. And U.S. Congress — they are not from here.
Easy to spot people within the mainstream media who are likely compromised, but get away with it, due to the pre-existing stigma structure, still loosely in place. Julian Barnes, of the New York Times, springs to mind.
The New York Times should be uncovering the news, not covering it...up, as usual.
So is (was) this a one battle war, or have we just seen the defeat of a single bill? Tim Burchett has the will, but he's not part of a significant oversight committee.
Has Mellon's contribution to publicise UAP events and circumvent the DoD reached an end? Was lining up whistleblowers his trump card (whistleblowers who provided testimony that Burchett and his oversight colleagues couldn't follow)?
Does any momentum remain, unseen? Are the politicians who were drawn to the cause still seeking answers or have they all been dissuaded?
Those of us who are aware of the significance and implications of historical UFO events are probably a step behind those politicians who have been told more by insiders. If we want answers then some of those politicians must want answers just as much.
And what of the evidence that Grusch could provide? How much of that has been investigated and by whom?
"How do you buy this kind of coverage?"
As you pointed out at the beginning, Ike already covered that.
The same applies to the vast majority of Congress on both sides.
The NYT , WaPo, and the other legacy news organizations are bought and paid for and are now officially the Ministry of Truth.
You're better off being on our own than being with them.
I think this was to be expected but still very disappointing. From my own polling of friends and family there is little to no knowledge of what is happening and has happened. There seems to be little understanding of what their children might face in the future based on the oversight issue of the military industrial complex and NHI tech research. I suppose with all the other issues that are coming to the forefront (AI, Climate Change, Authoritarianism, a divided populace, etc etc.) it maybe too overwhelming to contemplate. We will probably never get the money geyser out of our politics and influence so what's left of our basic democratic process will be on the chopping block. I said it before, but there is a real danger of our society becoming something similar to some version of the Hunger Games. With the advancement of AI and research into NHI tech by corporations given that tech by our own military, with little to no oversight, its really disturbing to think about the results. Many do not want too.
Forget catastrophic disclosure. After this cave, which proves again that Congress has nobody's back except its own, nobody is going to risk disclosing anything. Certainly not whistleblowers. No one wanted to seriously believe the Black Hats controlled all the action, but now you know. Some in the ragtag UFO community will try to regroup in some meaningful way, but they'll be up against the house, and you never bet against the house.
All I can say is Amen Billy. You once again nailed it. We just continue to watch the corruption fester on the Hill. The word transparency and accountability are non-existent in the US Government. It has always been part of the UFO landscape and likely always will. Corporations who are hiding the truth for the US government won out here. They won't have move those materials to hiding places and be afraid that the USG won;t be sending in people to raid their labs. LM is off the hook. Lest any whistleblowers think that anything will change or improve things, this clearly demonstrates it is not worth their time and personal safety to open up.
The Republicans screwed us on this, which I find surprising. Especially after conservative media played Grusch up so much. Coulthart, who’s taken shots at Biden on Need to Know didn’t lob any bombs at the Republicans on the latest podcast. I find that interesting. Maybe they’ll be more hearings with more whistle blowers. Maybe that’s the only way to truly break the ice on this issue.
By god I hope Marler has multiple fire suppression systems and good security.
Even NBC's "Meet the Press" gave Graff a platform last Sunday to provide a subtle rebuttal to guest Rep Tim Burchette. I don't believe for 1 minute that the MS news media isn't complicit in this endeavor to mold public opinion, especially with the repetitive theme that "there's nothing to see".... Graff seems to fortuitously making the rounds on other talk shows and media outlets. He's probably auditioning for a public relations position in the DC bureaucracy or MIC as the "go to guy" to put the matter to rest whenever the entrenched establishment (gatekeepers) needs expedient push back when the heat gets turned up. He would be a perfect fit with his voluble public persona.
Hi Billy, Very well written. Thank you. I always figured, when push came to shove ufos would be the literal and metaphorical vehicle that would begin to drive a wedge between the legislative and military branches of govt. At which point the Pentagon, Lockheed Martin would shut it all down through their compromised gatekeepers in congress, using 'national security' as an always reliable excuse.
The US is a corporate dictatorship, literally. Depressing when Lockheed Martin has more sway over legislation than hundreds of millions of American citizens.
Catastrophic disclosure, here we come!
