Alien Reboot

Note: There is a new movie review up on SubscribeStar. For those looking to support my alcoholism, it is also up on Buy Me A Beer.


For reasons no one has bothered to explain, the government went on a strange public relations tour, informing us that it has for years been documenting unidentified objects in the air and sea. These events have been captured by cameras mounted on military ships and aircraft. They released a bunch of these videos, some of which had audio of the people recording them. Those voices in the videos tell the viewer that the cameramen are baffled by the blurry images they are seeing.

Along with the videos, the Pentagon provided some background. They claim they have data going back a long time suggesting these events are not illusions. For example, they claim the appearance of unidentified flying objects near a nuclear weapons battery caused the facility to shut down. They did not state it directly, but the implication is the entity behind the unexplained objects was also able to turn off the nuclear weapons facility or at least disable it while they were flying around it.

Despite the comically bad video that was released, the claim is that these objects, in the air and the sea, operate in ways thought impossible. They move faster than any human built craft and they maneuver well beyond our capability. In one case, an object was claimed to have been in the air then it went into the sea, moving at speeds well beyond any known seagoing vessel. The video for that one shows what looks like a piece of fuzz moving around on a grainy black and white video.

Supposedly the government is releasing this stuff because Congress passed a law requiring them to come clean on the UFO question. Marco Rubio, one of the Senate’s most brilliant thinkers, got something passed last year that requires the Pentagon to issue a report to the public on what they know. Presumably, these videos are part of prepping the public for whatever the official word is on UFO’s. Who knows, maybe they will roll out a little green man along with the report.

Of course, the right way to view this is with lots of skepticism. After all, the people putting this into the public domain lie to us every day. They were sure that invisible Russians using mind control somehow altered the 2016 election. Amazingly, those invisible Russians were able to do their dastardly deeds without ever having been caught on camera, so maybe the space aliens flying around US navy ships could learn a few things from the those invisible Russian mentats.

Then we have the evidence itself. Maybe the military really is using 1970’s technology on ships and aircraft, but those videos look suspiciously primitive. The only thing missing was Mulder and Scully from the old X-Files series. If Rod Sterling were narrating the video, it would have made more sense. Again, given the government’s compulsive lying, the voice overs were less than convincing. If this is all they have, then we have to assume this is just more bravo sierra from the state.

The biggest problem with all UFO claims is that we know some things that would have to be true about alien visitors. One is they would have to be orders of magnitude smarter than humans in order to master interstellar travel. We are not even sure we can return to the moon, much less travel the stars. This super smart species that has conquered what we currently think is impossible, that is travel beyond light speed, would surely have figured out how to evade our primitive cameras.

The claim about the nuclear missile facility is the most amusing example of the paradoxes in the UFO story. We are told they were able to detect these entities on radar, but the entities seem to have disabled the nuclear weapons. That means these super intelligent space aliens can shut down our most advanced weapons from their ships but could not figure out how to shut off the radar and cameras. It is a good thing they did not come here to rob bank vaults.

Despite the outlandishness of these whoppers, it fits a familiar pattern for how the state disseminates bogus information. Andrew Anglin pointed this out in his Unz Review piece on the UFO story. He wrote, “Journalists and people who claim to be journalists regularly come up with things that seem plausible or likely, then claim that they have an insider source”. Those sources are imaginary, or they are the government contact that is dictating the fake news item to the “journalist”.

The question, of course, is why are they putting this nonsense out into the public domain after years denying any of it was real? There are plenty of theories ranging from the mundane to the conspiratorial. One possible answer is that these people are compulsive liars who just like lying. Generations of selection pressure in favor of sociopaths have resulted in a ruling class full of them. They think it is funny to mess with the rubes in flyover country and this just another gag.

The good news is that the public seems to be more than a bit skeptical about these new UFO claims. The story did not get much traction and the commentary on it from independent sources has been mostly negative. The American public may have reached the point where they view all official stories as just new productions from the same theater group. The new real-time X-Files is like the latest Star Wars offering, in that the public has seen enough. The thrill is gone.

I’d like to offer what seems an obvious, yet probably all too often overlooked hypothesis related to the UFO issue. As with too many issues, people tend to think everything must be either-or. Really? I ask you, why can’t ALL OF THE FOLLOWING be true? There really are some unexplained phenomena that are usually called UFOs. It’s possible that the government issues more or less honest reports, at least at times. There have been some damned odd sightings over the decades (centuries even). Many of them can be explained by hysteria or other psychology factors, but ALL of them? Note… Read more »

Remember when alien abductions were all the rage? Then it sort of faded away. Always some people in the middle of the woods in the middle of nowhere. Personal theory is if these were really happening some guy named Verle would have shot one long ago, then called the game warden to make sure it didn’t invalidate his unfilled deer tag. Wonder if there is an alternate explanation–there is a spoofing technology out there that defeats current radar and thermal detection.

Up until recently, I would have believed that military forces occasionally spotted weird flying phenomena which they would secretly investigate. There are many things in our heaven and earth undreamt of in our philosophy. Now that authorities are saying it is so, I strongly doubt it. These days, decyphering official announcements is like reading between the lines in Pravda: we think, what forces behind the scenes made them publish that? We know the answer is probably not, ‘because it is true’ because it never is. Every statement and every MSM report is pushing an agenda. Hmm, remember The X Files?… Read more »

UFOs could be real without being extraterrestrial. Some people theorize that they’re demons. CG Jung argues that they’re a manifestation of the collective unconscious. And others speculate that they’re impingements from another plane of existence or another dimension. I’m not sure what to believe, although I am certain whatever the gubmint is saying about UFOs is a bald-faced lie.

From the descriptions in The Bible they are pretty scary looking: they have 4 faces – one of a man, one of a bull, one of an eagle, & one of a lion. https://biblehub.com/ezekiel/10-14.htm They’re on some sort of contraption that has wheels & it whisks them like lightning in whichever direction they’re going.

Plasma electric magnetic phenomenon: From Thunderbolts: “In 1956, Winston Harper Bostick demonstrated that an amorphous mass of high-velocity plasma has a natural ability to convert a large proportion of its kinetic energy into magnetic energy, contained in an organised toroidal structure. He called this structure a ‘plasmoid’. Archaeologist and Thunderbolts colleague Peter Mungo Jupp details the criteria of eyewitness accounts that some UFO sightings may in fact be plasmoids. They seem to possess an intelligence, rise and fall to the ground as though being flown, seem to fly in the direction of either magnetic pole, change shape, pulse, and can… Read more »

ETs probabilistically exist. Some are more, some are less advanced than us.

Forget about those less advanced, they are incapable of traveling here.

Consider those more advanced. Perhaps, because the universe is so vast, we remain hidden. Perhaps they have found us and have already paid us a visit and found us uninteresting or not unuseful.

Perhaps they are our authors and are allowing the simulation to continue a while longer in order to see what we will do next.

The CBS Radio production of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” was broadcast in October 1938, just prior to WW2.

CBS founder William Paley and his star newsmen Edward R. Murrow and William Shirer were long-time members of the CFR. In March 1938, Murrow and Shirer were first to report on the Nazi invasion of Austria and provided much of the later “war reporting” to the US public. During the war, Paley also served as a Colonel in the Psychological Warfare Division.

Perhaps we never have and never will be visited by extra-terrestrials due to the “Fermi Paradox” which states that when an advanced civilization reaches a certain point of knowledge and discovery, things start to regress like we saw with the Greeks, the Romans, the English, and now the US. Ridiculous things like transgenderism, racial justice (vengeance) and the like take precedence over genuine scientific discovery and discipline. In short, it may very well be a universal maxim that “advanced” civilizations always commit suicide before they can even come close to interstellar space travel.

While we’re on the subject though, yes such speculation is more pop-philosophy than rational analysis, but an interesting hypothetical posed by one of those “where are they” articles pointed out that it’s almost within our grasp to build self-replicating space probes, and that in deploying such probes they would “colonize” the galaxy in…well I forget the number, but lets say 10 million years. Point being that the galaxy is way older than 10 millions years and if aliens occurred with anywhere near the frequency of their adherents we should be swimming in these probes, and yet, nothing.

This article explains that UFOs are really just drone technology controlled by U.S. adversaries. So, UFOs are promoted to protect military incompetence.

I think its just a combination of horrible equipment and the anti american US government trying to demoralize christians. Christianity is standing in the way of woke, gay liberalism and what better way to torture them than by putting trannies on tv and talking about aliens, which are certainly not explained in the bible.

We have about 8-10 Protestant, non-Amish / Mennonite churches in Canada who are openly & publicly standing up to the COVID tyranny and not complying. They’re been jailed or fined, most bullied into outward “compliance” – but are moving underground in reality.

Total congregants? Probably around 5,000 and 8,000 between them. Pretty blackpilling when you realize what a tiny % of the population that is.

There are lots of aliens around me… In fact Canada is bringing in 400,000 per year (those are just the legal ones). I heard there’s 30 million illegal aliens living in the USA, mostly the Southwest. Most of these aliens are actually quite hostile. They laugh in our face and brag about our replacement while cheating, stealing, and destroying.

I’ll start caring about grainy 1920s style black and white footage of blobs moving around once we get the current alien problem under control.

Distraction? Just like the “Russian collusion” tale was rolled out just in time and in order to distract from Hillary Clinton’s private server crimes and the murder of Seth Rich, maybe the sociopaths in charge of programming decided the public needed to be distracted from the debacle that’s the Biden administration. As mainstream religion dies off, peoples’ need to find an overarching narrative and greater meaning needs a new Tale to focus on.

Unless it was their version of April Fools Day or some sort of initiation rite. But then again seeing as they a sooooper advanced, what else could they really do with us? Would they attempt to steal our old fashioned technology? Possibly resources from Earth? In this frame of reference it seems highly likely that the aliens just like having fun with us.

Insane. The groveling is fairly evident from his facial expressions and the text, but the way he says it is so over the top. The bits where he says “very, very, very, very sorry…” sound so awkward in Chinese. I’ve never heard a native Chinese speaker talk like that. He’s literally translating his English into Chinese in a naked attempt to ingratiate himself to his Sino overlords.
