UFO is now UAPTF. Just rolls off your tongue, doesn’t it?

The Navy will lead a new task force charged with detecting, analyzing and cataloging encounters with what used to be called UFOs that could threaten the United States, the Pentagon announced in a statement Friday…

The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, approved Aug. 4 by Deputy Secretary of Defense David Norquist, was established so the Department of Defense can improve its “understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins” of mysterious flying objects, the statement said.

Joining research into other mysteries of modern American political life. Like trump’s hair.

Come to think of it. Could this be trump’s hair in the air?

    Vladimir Ilych Lenin, in a conversation with H. G. Wells (1920): “…You are right. I understood this myself when I read your novel The Time Machine. All human conceptions are on the scale of our planet. They are based on the pretension that the technical potential, though it will develop, will never exceed the terrestrial limit. If we succeed in establishing interplanetary communications, all our philosophies, moral and social views, will have to be revised. In this case the technical potential, become limitless, will impose the end of the role of violence as a means and method of progress.” http://www.autodidactproject.org/quote/wells_lenin_scifi.html

      “US intelligence agencies have 180 days to share what they know about UFOs, thanks to the Covid-19 relief and spending bill” https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/10/us/ufo-report-emergency-relief-bill-trnd/index.html
      “The director of National Intelligence and the secretary of defense have a little less than six months now to provide the congressional intelligence and armed services committees with an unclassified report about “unidentified aerial phenomena.”
      It’s a stipulation that was tucked into the “committee comment” section of the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, which was contained in the massive spending bill.
      That report must contain detailed analyses of UFO data and intelligence collected by the Office of Naval Intelligence, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force and the FBI, according to the Senate intelligence committee’s directive.
      It should also describe in detail “an interagency process for ensuring timely data collection and centralized analysis of all unidentified aerial phenomena reporting for the Federal Government” and designate an official responsible for that process.
      Finally, the report should identify any potential national security threats posed by UFOs and assess whether any of the nation’s adversaries could be behind such activity, the committee said.
      The submitted report should be unclassified, the committee said, though it can contain a classified annex.”

Boyd suspects that the video may have been altered prior to going public, and he is concerned that the Navy may have provoked the UAP into firing an electromagnetic pulse at a US Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet jet.” https://sociable.co/technology/engineer-spacetime-bending-forensic-analysis-tic-tac-nimitz-ufo-video-navy/

    (10/11/20): “In a Fox News interview over the phone on Sunday, Trump was asked why the Department of Defense has set up a UFO task force.” https://futurism.com/trump-military-aliens
    “So Mr. President, are there UFOs?” anchor Maria Bartiromo asked him outright.
    “Well, I’m going to have to check on that,” Trump said. “I mean, I’ve heard that. I heard that two days ago. So I’ll check on that. I’ll take a good, strong look at that.”
    But then, instead of stopping there, Trump went on to boast about the US military — in an apparent threat to any extraterrestrials who might be out there.
    “I will tell you this: We have now created a military the likes of which we have never had before,” he said, unprompted by Bartiromo. “Russia, China, they’re all envious of what we had. All built in the USA. We’ve rebuilt it all—$2.5 trillion dollars. As far as the other question I’ll check on it, I heard about it two days ago actually.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJuticQPZBw&feature=youtu.be

    “At one point during the 1985 Geneva Summit, President Ronald Reagan and Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev took a break from negotiations to take a walk. Only their private interpreters were present and for years, the details of what they talked about were kept secret from both the Russian and American public. But during a 2009 interview with Charlie Rose and Reagan’s Secretary of State George Shultz, Gorbachev revealed that Reagan asked him point-blank if they could set aside their differences in case the world was invaded by aliens.” (Smithsonian) https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/reagan-and-gorbachev-agreed-pause-cold-war-case-alien-invasion-180957402/

    BLC-1 is a candidate SETI radio signal announced in December 2020, possibly coming from the star Proxima Centauri. The signal has a frequency of 982.002 MHz and an apparent shift in its frequency is consistent with the Doppler effect caused by the movement of Proxima b, a planet of Proxima Centauri.
    The radio signal was detected during 30 hours of observations conducted by Breakthrough Listen through the Parkes Observatory in Australia in April and May 2019. As of December 2020, follow-up observations have failed to detect the signal again, a step necessary to confirm that the signal was a technosignature. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BLC-1
    “Strange radio transmissions appear to be coming from our nearest star system; now scientists are trying to work out what is sending them” (Scientific American December 18, 2020) https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/alien-hunters-discover-mysterious-signal-from-proxima-centauri/
    “…scientists behind the discovery caution there is still much work to be done, but admit the interest is justified. “It has some particular properties that caused it to pass many of our checks, and we cannot yet explain it,” says Andrew Siemion from the University of California, Berkeley.
    Most curiously, it occupies a very narrow band of the radio spectrum: 982 megahertz, specifically, which is a region typically bereft of transmissions from human-made satellites and spacecraft. “We don’t know of any natural way to compress electromagnetic energy into a single bin in frequency” such as this one, Siemion says. Perhaps, he says, some as-yet-unknown exotic quirk of plasma physics could be a natural explanation for the tantalizingly concentrated radio waves. But “for the moment, the only source that we know of is technological.”

    The Pentagon’s pilots have seen a lot of UFOs, a lot more than they’ve told the public about. That’s according to John Ratcliffe, Trump’s former Director of National Intelligence. Ratcliffe told Fox News that an upcoming Pentagon report about unidentified aerial phenomena will detail more UFO interactions than had been previously reported. https://www.vice.com/en/article/3an3b8/former-director-of-national-intelligence-teases-blockbuster-ufo-report
    The 2021 Intelligence Authorization Act—part of a spending bill that outlines the U.S. intelligent committees priorities for the forthcoming year—included a provision forcing the U.S. intelligence apparatus to issue a report on UFOs. The deadline for that report is June 1.
    It’s worth taking Ratcliffe’s comments with a grain of salt, but this report has been anticipated for months, and it makes sense that it would include additional UFO sightings.
