    Secretary of Defence for Intelligence), currently of TTSA.

    "As unlikely as it may seem, there is no denying the possibility that some UFO/UAPs encountered by our military are probes launched by distant civilisations."

    "This paralysis is occurring at a time when the scientific community increasingly recognizes the possibility of humanity encountering probes from spacefaring civilizations. In fact, last year the House Committee on Space, Science and Technology directed NASA to begin looking for “technosignatures,” by which it means alien space probes. This is happening because many exobiologists now recognize probes are more efficient and effective than radio waves for purposes of space exploration or contact. As unlikely as it may seem, there is no denying the possibility that some UFO/UAPs encountered by our military are probes launched by distant civilizations."

    (data venia)

    With all due respect to these experts, with regard to the entropy laws, technological and logistical limitations, I would like to question how much and / or how long they thinked it is worth not thinking about the most obvious.

    In favor to my questioning, I ask what item bellow can not seem as a kind of "probe":

    (1492) Christopher Columbus sent to Americas
    (1960) bathyscaphe Trieste sent to the bottom of Mariana Trench
    (1969) mission Apolo 11 sent to Moon.
    (1994) the predator drone (MQ-1) sent to war in Afghanistan

    (just thinking out loud)

    Humans explore. It's just what they do.

    All of this reminds me a lot of the "alien invasion scenario" as predicted by Wernher von Braun according to Carol Rosin.

    The headline already sets the tone, and Mellon's talking points in the article really are a) there is evidence for ETs and advanced ET technology, b) they could be a military threat, and c) we need to spend more on the military as this will increase our security, benefit the economy and unite the people for a common cause and against a common enemy. On top of it all, the article is published in a major veterans' newspaper.


    Here are some of the most revealing passages of Mellon's article:

    In my conversations with Cmdr. David Fravor, his excitement was palpable and contagious, as were the fears of his anonymous female wingman when she described the surreal manner in which the UAP seemed to defy the laws of physics, tumbling through nonsensical angles to maintain a dominant position vis-à-vis Fravor’s F-18. […]

    Fravor’s wingman told me, and Fravor agreed, “We didn’t stand a chance against it.” I cannot imagine Navy F-18 pilots saying that about any Russian or Chinese fighter. These sobering words from badass Navy combat pilots should be taken to heart by DoD officials and Congress.

    Indeed, the radical and technologically superior nature of these craft is a common theme for Navy pilots on both coasts. In the famous “Gimbal” video posted by The New York Times, one of the pilots is heard to exclaim, “There’s a whole fleet of them out there!” He was referring to a V-shaped formation of smaller craft approaching the fighters as they observed a larger “mothership” in the video. […]

    If we knew for certain that the Russian or Chinese militaries had leapfrogged the United States technologically, there would be an uproar, much as there was when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, the world’s first man-made satellite. Fearful of falling behind, the public grew restive and Congress promptly responded by increasing spending for NASA and bolstering science-education programs. These initiatives paid handsome dividends 11 years later when Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon, arriving courtesy not only of a new space vehicle but thousands of patented new technologies that strengthened U.S. industry and leadership in science and technology. […]

    At the strategic level, isn’t it odd that illegal immigration is an emergency requiring DoD to forgo billions in spending yet no funds are available to investigate hypersonic platforms capable of carrying weapons of mass destruction across U.S. borders? […]

    Pearl Harbor and 9/11 are tragic examples of intelligence failures that could have been avoided. Our continuing inability to identify the radical aerospace vehicles violating our airspace is an ongoing intelligence failure […].

    And he closes the article with this gem that I have to highlight on its own:

    If we fail to thoroughly investigate, in the wake of reliable pilot reporting and the Navy’s admission, it can only be because policymakers are prioritizing political expediency over national security – a state of affairs reminiscent of the declining Roman Empire, when the needs and concerns of troops in the field were given short shrift by maneuvering politicians in Rome. Hopefully, support for our troops is one thing that still unites us.

    Out of all the bazillion things you could say about the history of UFO and ET research, of documented human interaction with ETs, stories of abduction and of inspiration, Mellon, a DoD insider, chooses to talk like this.

    This confirms the impression that I and many have had: that the TTSA (that Mellon is a member of) is part of an ongoing effort to conduct a limited hangout regarding UFO information, to put a spin on that information and to gaslight the public into accepting a world in which the people are uniform, obedient soldiers of a caring scientific-political-economic-military elite.


    I would like to close this post with words from Randolph Bourne, published in 1918:

    War is the health of the State. It automatically sets in motion throughout society those irresistible forces for uniformity, for passionate cooperation with the Government […]. The minorities are either intimidated into silence, or brought slowly around by subtle process of persuasion which may seem to them really to be converting them.
