U.S Government Document Excerpt: “CIA’s Role in the Study of UFOs, 1947-90”

(Central Intelligence Agency,Washington, D.C.)
UFO comments by H. Marshall Chadwell, Assistant Director of OSI:
“H. Marshall Chadwell, Assistant Director of OSI (U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI or OSI)), added that he considered the problem of such importance ‘that it should be brought to the attention of the National Security Council, in order that a communitywide coordinated effort towards it solution may be initiated.’ (22)
Chadwell briefed DCI Smith on the subject of UFOs in December 1952. He urged action because he was convinced that ‘something was going on that must have immediate attention’ and that ‘sightings of unexplained objects at great altitudes and traveling at high speeds in the vicinity of major US defense installations are of such nature that they are not attributable to natural phenomena or known types of aerial vehicles.’ He drafted a memorandum from the DCI to the National Security Council (NSC) and a proposed NSC Directive establishing the investigation of UFOs as a priority project throughout the intelligence and the defense research and development community. (23) Chadwell also urged Smith to establish an external research project of top-level scientists to study the problem of UFOs. (24) After this briefing, Smith directed DDI Amory to prepare a NSC Intelligence Directive (NSCID) for submission to the NSC on the need to continue the investigation of UFOs and to coordinate such investigations with the Air Force.

Naked Bible Podcast Episode 152: Ezekiel 38-39, Part 1: Who or What is Gog?

As was the case with Ezekiel 37, these chapters are among the most familiar in the entire book of Ezekiel. This first of two episodes on these chapters focuses on the terminology: Gog, Magog, Meshech, Tubal, and Togarmah. It also addresses the fallacies of translating Hebrew nesiʾ roʾsh as “prince of Rosh” and interpreting the phrase as modern-day Russia, and the difficulties ancient translators had with the term. An alternative understanding of Gog is offered, one that is consistent with the supernaturalistic worldview of the “foe from the north” motif in Old Testament thought.

The episode is now live.

UFO Sighting in Liverpool, England on 2017-04-01 17:42:00 – A large disc with no protrusions about or below, like a very large penny with curved edges. looked like there were 2 lights on one side.

I was on a train when i spotted the ufo. from liverpool to manchester which left liverpool lime street and was about to arrive at edge hill. i looked to the north side of the train and saw this object. when we went past trees which blocked the view it had vanished. i saw the ufo for about 14 seconds. i wanted to alert other passengers but it had gone very quickly.

UFO Sighting in North Bend, Washington on 2017-03-31 05:50:00 – Star like object traveled north, stopped, reversed course, turned west & traveled, then stopped.

While taking out the trash at 5:45 am, 3-31-17, i was appreciating the clear sky after an extended period of rain and cloud cover. i noticed what looked like a small star in the western sky drifting north, at about 45 degrees elevation. commercial aircraft in the area typically travel east/west; north/south paths are uncommon. i’ve observed satellites passing by in the past and thought it might be one as its rate of motion across the sky seemed about right for one. however it looked too large for a satellite. in terms of size i’d rank it in the bottom quartile of stars visible with the naked eye. my view was clear and there were other stars nearby that i used to gauge its motion. over the course of the next 30 seconds or so it traversed a distance of about the width of my hand at arm’s length. then it reversed its direction and began traveling south at the same rate. it covered a distance of about the width of my finger at arm’s length. then it turned 90 degrees and began traveling west. it continued west at it’s previous speed for about 20 seconds, then slowed and finally stopped. i observed it for the next 10 minutes or so and could not detect any further motion. dawn was beginning to lighten up the sky now, so it was difficult to tell if the brightness of the object was diminishing or it was simply fading with the other stars. at no previous time did the object’s brightness vary or change color. it was past 6 am then and i left for work. this is the first time i’ve seen something in the sky i can not understand.

Tom DeLonge defined pop-punk with Blink-182. He left stardom behind to study aliens.

(LeAnn Mueller/Courtesy of PWR PR) Of all the pop-punk bands to emerge in the 1990s, few achieved success like Blink-182. Massive hits like “What’s My Age Again?” and “All the Small Things” fueled its distinct brand of cheery-cum-snotty adolescence. By October 2001, the band could draw 15,000 eager fans to Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. There the crowd watched as Blink-182, then composed […]

UFO Sighting in Wasilla, Alaska on 2015-04-10 00:00:00 – I observed a craft that released many orbs before another craft rendezvoused with it , before both disappeared.

I was near anchorage international airport getting sun , and had my binoculars that day , as i had seen an object the previous fall from the same location. i noticed what appeared to be a star in broad daylight and looked around to see if other stars were visible. none were , so i took out the binoculars and looked around the sky for other “stars”. when i realized there were none , i concentrated on the object. it was reflecting sunlight , and i was able to see that it was teardrop shaped. it appeared to be in a light brown haze , as if the atmosphere was reacting to it. it was not moving at all. suddenly , what appeared to be two parallel lines of smoke shot out of the craft , and between the lines shot out roughly 10 orbs that disappeared seconds after being released. then it happened several more times , but the orbs were shot out in different directions with each release. after about ten minutes of this , another craft the exact same size and configuration appeared from nowhere and rendezvoused with the first craft. at this time , i tried to get in a better position for viewing , as my neck and shoulders were getting stiff . when i looked again , they were gone. three days later , i went back with a camera and binoculars. while searching with binoculars , i saw a white sphere that was miles away , moving faster than any aircraft we have. it moved as if tumbling through the air. it appeared to be a sphere with a thin slice of a cube attached to it , and as i said it tumbled . it didn’t seem possible that it could move that fast in such a manner. i set up a camera and i believe i have it on film. my problem is that i am a dumbass regarding electronics and don’t know how to down load and examine it.
the following year , i made many trips to the same location. it just so happened that on one occasion without binoculars , i was able to identify the same type of haze in roughly the same direction , and inside it was a light that i knew was a ship. there were numerous flashes of light near it and they appeared to be streaking away from the main object at high speed. it was at this time i realized that the orbs from the sighting the year before were not disappearing after being released. they were moving so fast that their image was still on my retina and merely appeared to disappear.
my impression of this is that they are scientists , or students , or colonists , or tourists. whatever they are , they look at us as if we are ants they stumble across on a path in the woods.

AFTER ARRIVAL PHOENIX LIGHTS 20 YEARS LATER On March 13, 1997 something extra-ordinary happened in the skies over Phoenix across Arizona.
