Red-Headed Alevi In Kurdistan Could Be Guardians Of Watchers’ Secret Knowledge And Shed Light On The Excalibur Legend

Ellen Lloyd – AncientPages.com – In the foothills of Turkish Kurdistan, in eastern Anatolia, there is an unusual tribe called Alevi.

The mysterious Alevi do not only differ in their physical appearance compared to other people living in the region, but their religious beliefs and ceremonies reveal some intriguing aspects worth exploring further. The Alevi worship certain angels and some scholars suggest, they are guardians of Watchers’ secret knowledge. It’s also possible their religion may reveal some secrets behind the legend of Excalibur.

Today’s form of Alevism dates only to the 15th century, but the roots of these people go back thousands of years.

Unusual Religious Ceremonies of The Alevi

The Alevis take their name from the word alev, meaning fire.

Fire played an important role in their religious beliefs and practices. The Alevi are the second-largest religious community in Turkey, comprising as many as 15 million people who adhere to a mystical branch of Islam that broke off from the main Sunni majority.

History of the Kurds goes back thousands of years.

The Alevi are not Muslims, although they do recognize some avatars or divine incarnations. Many of their religious ceremonies are quite exotic to outsiders. For example, during the important Alevi ceremony known as Ayini Jam, the Alevi insert a sword into the ground to communicate with the universal spirit.

The Alevi have been criticized for allowing women to participate in all ritual gatherings, which is uncommon in the Muslim world.

What Do The Dimili Alevis Know About The Legend Of The Excalibur?

The Dimili Alevis are also known as the Qizilbash, the red-heads. People with red hair are often encountered among the Kurds.

The Dimili Alevis are Sun and Moon worshippers and they also practice the ancient Iranian rite of worshiping the deity represented as a sword stuck into the ground. Greek historian Herodotus (484–c. 425 BC), mentioned this rite was practiced by the Iranic Scythians, and Sarmatians in Ukraine about 2,300 years ago. In his book The Kurds, AvMehrdad Izady points out that the image of the sword stuck in the ground or rock is similar to that of the British Excalibur and King Arthur.

Excalibur/ Still from the BBC’s “Merlin”

“There is a strong possibility that the two are related. In AD 175, Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius assigned a legion of Sarmatians from Pannonia (modern Hungary) to serve in England and Scotland (the Sarmatians’ commanders name was Lucius Artorius Castus!)” This suggests that the “basic elements of the legend may have been introduced into Britain by these Sarmatian settlers and the familiar story of Excalibur may thus be akin to this Dimili Alevi religious practice.”

There are many controversial questions regarding the ethic and religious identity of the Kurds. Many theories have been put forward but there is no definite evidence that could provide us with answers as who these people really are where they came from.

Are The Alevi Guardians Of Secret Knowledge Of The Watchers?

In his book From the Ashes of Angels, Andrew Collins propose the Dimili Alevi are familiar with the secret knowledge of the Watchers. “Had the Daylamite or or Dimili, tribes of Turkish Kurdistan managed to preserve the name of Dilmun or Dilaman from the prehistoric age right down to Medieval times?

More importantly, did the red-headed Alevi tribesmen guard age-old secrets concerning the Watchers’ apparent presence in this region? And what of their home territory, south-west of Lake Van – had this really been the location of Dilmun, the Mesopotamian domain of the immortals, as well as Kharsag, the settlement of the Annage, and Eden, the homeland of the Watchers?” Collins asks.

In this Gustave Dore engraving from Milton's Paradise Lost, Satan, the Fallen Angel,

As Ancient Pages mentioned in another article, little is known about the Watchers, the Fallen Angels who were the “sons of God”.  The subject of the Watchers is controversial, and scholars think the Watchers deliberately ‘created’ the hybrid giants to destroy God’s creation as punishment for being cast out of heaven.

Perhaps by studying the religion of the Alevi we could gain more knowledge about the secrets of the Watchers. (Click to Source)

The rise of the Antichrist and modern technology. All they need is the right conditions: a totalitarian world dictatorship to put it into effect

totalitarian-world-dictatorship-to-put-it-into-effect

With modern technology and advanced systems, computer chips and hi-tech surveillance, “Big Brother” is watching, and it’s now “all systems go!” Everything’s falling into place for the global economy to take off, and the technology and necessary computing power are with us now, the actual infrastructure is already in place, developed, tested and proven.

The Anti-Christ world leader will be the author of confusion, the master counterfeiter, and through his many images he will deceive the nations. The Antichrist will come on the world stage peaceably, with flatteries, via powerful persuasion and propaganda. By this means he is able to creep into houses and lead captive the masses.

Through his many images and idols he shows himself clever, for acceptance of his 666 mark of the Beast (Revelation 13:16-18) will be the fashion–the logical, the reasonable, the convenient, the safest, the securest, the vital, the norm, that which is accepted in the eyes of man, both small and great.

It’s getting darker and colder all the time, and many people in the world can feel it. They may not understand it, and they don’t always want to admit it, but it’s happening. The sun is setting, the darkness is falling, and the world is looking for hope, for some ray of light. The nations question “Why this and why that? Why all the pain and strife in the world? Why the slaughter of the innocents? Why troubles and sorrows?” These questions are being raised in people’s hearts and minds, and those whose foundations have been built on the sand, or others who had no foundations to begin with, have no answers.

Never in all of history until now has the technology existed for a world dictatorship to rule the world. All they need is the right conditions: a totalitarian world dictatorship to put it into effect. The Antichrist government will use the computer to rule the world in the form of an image to the antichrist. The image of the Beast!

REVELATION 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast (Antichrist); saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast (Antichrist), which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

REVELATION 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

REVELATION 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

REVELATION 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

REVELATION 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. 666

The technology for the Antichrist’s One World monetary system and “Mark of the Beast” is already developed and ready to be put into effect. Just think, all the peoples of the Earth united, on the same wavelength, the same channel.

All around, every single day, there are signs of the coming End, signs of the Antichrist, signs of the coming One World Order. Man’s knowledge has also increased in these last two years, as it has in other recent years, but it now heads in more dangerous directions than in the past, including attempts to clone human beings, fuse man and beast in the embryo, or genetically modify man. As men seek to unravel the secrets of life, they also seek to combine it with machine. They seek new and improved robots to serve man, giving them artificial intelligence and mobility such as they’ve not had before. They seek to make man himself more of a machine, implanting chips, sensors, and electrodes to enhance man’s powers and intelligence.

These chips and implants come with many benign purposes: They increase security for children and protect them from abduction; they monitor criminals; they check the health of their subjects and release medicine into the body; they make identification quick and easy; they prevent fraud; they monitor and increase productivity; they make life more convenient in many ways. In the last two years we’ve seen a great increase in the knowledge that has made such things possible and public acceptance of the devices themselves.

Despite the promises of technology, modern comforts and conveniences, and affluence unknown in the past, poverty persists. War threatens. Disease stalks and kills many. The world thinks they’ve entered the great new age of technology, and the 21st century is going to thrust them into the greatest glories of their “techno-age.” The technology known as biometrics, for example, the process of collecting, processing and storing details of a person’s physical characteristics, has excited the interest of governments and companies because, unlike other forms of ID (cards, papers, etc.), it knows the target human as well as a mother knows her children. The most popular forms of biometric identification are retina scans, hand geometry, thumb scans, fingerprints, voice recognition, and digitized photographs.

This is the sort of power that will be needed to run the Antichrist’s computers and government. here’s nothing intrinsically wrong with the technology and being able to do things faster and better. But these will be useful mechanisms of the Antichrist’s New World Order. Technology has broken down borders and nations are becoming less important, which will make the creation of his one-world government relatively simpler. It’s happening so gradually that global government will just be a logical next step.

The world will accept him, only to find that the heaven on earth he’s promised them has become hell on earth, with hell hereafter for those who take his 666 Mark of the Beast. They’re trying to control living beings with technology, with chips that they’ve finally managed to incorporate in their brains. And they’ll go on developing that technology until it reaches its apex in the Mark of the Beast, with which evil men would seek to control and monitor men even more.

Are you ready for these great and final events of the end? You can get ready now by receiving Jesus into your heart. Simply pray this little prayer and He will come in: “Dear Jesus, I believe that You are the Son of God and that You died for me. Please forgive me for all my sins. I ask You, Jesus, to please come into my heart and give me Your free Gift of Eternal Life. (Click to Source)

GREAT PYRAMID HIDING A STARGATE? Scientist Suggests There Is A Mysterious Object Hidden In Unexplored Cavity That Pharaoh Used “To Pass Through The Gates Of The Sky”

Giza Pyramid: Scientist Suggests There is an ‘Iron Throne’ in Unexplored Cavity

1060705652

The newly discovered cavity in the Giza Pyramid has left scientists around the world wondering what lies inside the mysterious chamber. Italian mathematician Giulio Magli may have some answers.

In November 2017, the magazine Nature published the results of the ScanPyramids project revealing that there is a large cavity at least 30 meters long within the Pyramid of Cheops (Giza Pyramid) in Egypt. Since then, scientists and archaeologists around the world have been trying to discover what this void contains and what its purpose was.

Giulio Magli, professor of Mathematics and Archaeoastronomy at the Politecnico di Milano, has proposed one of the first hypotheses; his conclusions were published by Eurekalert.

According to the scientist, the newly found chamber was hardly a mistake made during the construction, neither did it carry an architectural function such as reducing the load on the main corridor of the pyramid, as some experts have suggested.

Magli believes that the answer can be found in the burial religion of the ancient Egypt.

“There is a possible interpretation, which is in good agreement with what we know about the Egyptian funerary religion as witnessed in the Pyramids Texts. In these texts it is said that the pharaoh, before reaching the stars of the north, will have to pass the “gates of the sky” and sit on his “throne of iron,” Magli was reported as saying by Eurekalert.

“The room may contain, at its upper end and exactly under the apex of the great pyramid, an object needed by Cheops after crossing the doors: the “iron throne” mentioned in the Pyramid Texts,” Magli said.

The scientist noted that in the pyramid there are four “air ducts” along which the spirit of the deceased ruler could “get out”, while the passage leading to the north ends with a sealed door. It is behind this door, according to Magli, that there is chamber containing the throne.

He recalled that inside the same pyramid the throne of Cheop’s mother Queen Hetepheres had been discovered. It had a low cedar base covered in gold and faience.

“Cheops’ could be similar, but coated with thin iron sheets. Of course it would not be melted iron, but meteoritic iron, that is, fallen from the sky in the form of Iron meteorites [distinguishable due to the high percentage of Nickel] and again cited in the Texts,” Magli said.

The pyramid of Cheops also known as the Giza Pyramid is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, which was built in the middle of the third millennium BC, at the time of Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops), representative of the Fourth Dynasty of the Ancient Egyptian Kingdom.

The structure, 145 meters in height and 230 meters in width, remains one of the tallest and largest structures ever built by mankind. (Click to Source)

Ancient Egypt: Mysterious 2,600-Year-Old Temple And Statues Point To Holy Site At “Hill Of The Pharaohs”

Archaeologists working in Egypt have uncovered the remains of a mysterious 2,600-year-old temple and a series of sacred artefacts they believe to be part of a holy complex at the Hill of The Pharaohs.

In their excavations in the north of Egypt, the team said they found signs of the temple structure as well as other ancient objects which they dated to the late period between 664-332 B.C.

The archaeologists at the Tel al-Pharaeen site, also known as the Ancient Buto site in the Kafr al-Sheikh governorate said the temple appeared to have held four furnaces which were likely used to make devotiional offerings.

Ayman Ashmawy, head of the ancient Egyptian antiquities sector at Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities said in a statement that the mud walls recovered in the dig would have formed the architectural axis of the temple.

The archaeologists also recovered the bases of two limestone pillars that would have once formed some of the integral structure of the temple.

Experts uncovered other limestone artefacts including a statue of King Psamtik I seated on a throne and partly identifiable by a royal handkerchief he was depicted as holding. The upper part of the statue had become damaged over the centuries.

Another as of yet unidentifiable royal statue was also uncovered. The carved black granite statue has lost its head, its neck and a section just below one knee. However, experts believe this is also likely to Psamtik because of its royal clothing.

The dig has uncovered part of the upper section of an ancient Egyptian god carved in quartzite, an inscription relating to the Buto temple and the royal cartouche of Psamtik. The statues and other fragments, including a necklace and symbol of the goddess Hathor recovered from the site, have been stored at the Ministry of Antiquities.

In recent years, Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities has been working to publicize the ongoing archaeology work in the country in a bid to attract tourism. Following Egypt’s 2011 revolution and the extended period of instability that followed, tourist numbers to the North African nation have dwindled.

Last month archaeologists discovered four intact children’s graves at a quarry that once provided stone for buildings built centuries later. The youngest of the children was between two or three years old at the time of death, according to Live Science.

In November, experts uncovered an ancient sarcophagus containing a startlingly well-preserved mummy wearing an intricately painted gold-and-blue burial mask. (Click to Source)

An AI expert explains how robot-human offspring would work

We are coming to the Days of Noah. So what kind of monsters are sinful humans going to create? The Nephilim are coming back!

adult-3046123__480

Can robots and humans make babies together? This is a serious question inspired by some of the advances already achieved in the 21st century by researchers in cell biology and in a discipline variously known as biorobotics, synthetic biology, or bionanotechnology.

Although it had long been a truth universally acknowledged that sexual intercourse was an essential precursor to conception, it was only around 150 years ago that early studies of embryology revealed the reason why, according to the dogma of the time, intercourse was “essential” in human reproduction. The reason was that only an egg from a female, fertilized by a sperm from a male, can result in a live birth. But thanks to the Nobel prize winning work of researchers like embryologist John Gurdon and stem cell researcher Shinya Yamanaka, it has become possible during the past few years to create both sperm cells and eggs in the laboratory from skin cells, obviating the need for a human mother or father to kick off the reproductive process.

At the end of April 2016, Stanford University and the Valencia Infertility Institute announced the result of a collaboration project in which human sperm, with tails, were created from skin cells. Just five months later, testifying to the speed with which stem cell research is progressing, researchers at the University of Bath reported that they had discovered a method of creating offspringwithout the need for a female egg. This was heralded as a major breakthrough which rewrites 200 years of biology teaching, and could pave the way, for example, for a baby to be born from the DNA of two men.

In August 2017, researchers at Ohio State College of Engineering announced an exciting new technology. “Tissue nanotransfection” (TNT for short) which enables injured or aging tissue to be repaired or restored, including blood vessels, nerve cells and entire organs.

TNT technology has two major components: First is a nanotechnology-based chip designed to deliver cargo to adult cells in a live body. Second is the design of specific biological cargo for cell conversion. TNT doesn’t require any laboratory-based procedures and is also non-invasive.

“By using our novel nanochip technology, injured or compromised organs can be replaced. We have shown that skin is a fertile land where we can grow the elements of any organ that is declining,” writes the study’s co-lead, Dr. Chandan Sen, director of Ohio State’s Center for Regenerative Medicine & Cell Based Therapies. The next step for the Ohio researchers is clinical trials next year to test this technology in humans.

In fraction of a second, TNT injects genetic code into the skin, turning those cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions, generating any cell type of interest for treatment within the patient’s own body. This is key to the concept of a human-robot baby whose genetic information comes from both “parents,” the robot as well as the human. The skin cells used to derive the sperm and egg which start the embryonic process, already contain genetic information from the human parent. But what of genetic information derived from the robot parent?

Robot genes

To answer this question, let us consider the research of a South Korean team lead by Jong-Hwan Kim, a pioneer in robotics. In 2005, Kim and his team at the Robot Intelligence Technology Lab in Korea’s Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) published a paper in which they describe an artificial creature called Rity, living in a virtual world. They used Rity to test the world’s first robotic chromosomes—a set of computerized DNA codes for creating artificial creatures that can have their own personality, and can ultimately reproduce their own kind or even evolve as a distinct species. The effectiveness of the Korean team’s artificial chromosomes was demonstrated by implanting genetic code into two Rity robots living in a virtual world, in order to specify their personality.

In 2007, the Korean team applied for a patent for their “genetic robot” invention. The patent describes in some detail how the research team model their software robot based on established biological inheritance laws, including those propounded by Gregor Mendel, who lived from 1822 to 1884, the founding father of the modern study of genetics.

When a sperm and egg meet, their respective DNAs combine so that half of our DNA comes from our mother and half from our father. We need to understand how the Korean model operates in order to understand how a human-robot baby can be created with genetic codes derived partly from a robot. The team define their “genetic robot” as an artificial creature, a software robot, or a general robot that has its own “genetic codes,” the genetic code of a robot being a single robot genome composed of multiple artificial chromosomes.

The genetic codes are classified into “personality genes” related to the internal state of the software robot, and “outward genes” related to its outward appearance. The outward genes provide pieces of outward genetic information that determine the outward appearance of the software robot, such as its face and its eyes. The personality genes provide fundamental genetic information, internal state genetic information, and behavior determination genetic information, and they dictate the robot’s personality by determining changes in its internal states, including changes in the robot’s motivations, its homeostasis, and its emotions, and changes in the corresponding behaviour manifestations as the robot interacts with its external environment.

The term “fundamental genetic information” refers to fundamental parameters, for example volatility, which have a great effect on changes to the robot’s internal states and external behaviours. The internal state genetic information comprises parameters that affect the internal state of the robot in relation to how it is affected by external inputs to the robot. The behavior determination genetic information refers to parameters that determine the robot’s external behaviours based on its current internal states.

So to summarize their invention, the multiple artificial chromosomes implanted in the Korean software robot dictate the individual personality characteristics peculiar to that robot, which in turn governs how the robot’s internal states change, including its motivation, homeostasis, emotion, and its behavior resulting from those changes while it is interacting with its external environment.

The Korean team’s patent application also summarizes their method for passing on genetic information from a robot “parent” to its robot “offspring.” The genetic codes of one or more software robots are used as the genetic codes of a pair of parent software robots, and new genetic information is created by combining genetic information from paired homologous chromosomes – information provided by the genetic codes of the parent software robots. The combining is conducted according to a predetermined gene crossover rule.

The Korean invention allows the user to design a genetic code for a software robot easily and intuitively and to design genetic codes for various software robots by crossover. It also enables a user to easily modify or construct a genetic code for a software robot by providing both a changing function for intuition traits and a software robot crossover function. This exercise in genetic engineering is used to create software robot offspring with the desired personality features.

It cannot be a huge step to translate the genetic code format generated by the Korean algorithm, into the genetic code format employed in the Ohio TNT chip, thereby allowing researchers to specify personality traits and physical characteristics to be passed from a robot parent to a human-robot baby.

Robot-human offspring

Suddenly the very real possibility has appeared on the horizon of the robots of the future manipulating human skin cells to create human sperm and human eggs, and from them, using the Ohio discovery of TNT as the basis, creating an entire human-robot baby whose embryo can be nurtured and carried through pregnancy by a mother surrogate. By injecting genetic code into skin cells à la TNT, the Ohio researchers have paved the way for the genetic code of a robot, containing some of the characteristics of the robot, to be passed on to its offspring along with human genetic code. This is how I believe it will be possible, within the foreseeable future, for humans and robots to make babies together.

Will this happen in my lifetime? Probably not, as I am 72. But given the phenomenal rate of discovery and progress in the fields of cell biology and nanotechnology, I think it is likely to happen before the end of this century.

There are all sorts of ethical questions relating to such a use of genetic engineering as part of the process to create babies.

These implications were put somewhat into perspective in a post on human genetic engineering by Renuka Sivapatham, a graduate student at the University of Southern Denmark. DNA editing techniques have been available for decades and are crucial tools for understanding gene functions and molecular pathways. Recently, genome editing has stepped back into the limelight because of newer technologies that can quickly and efficiently modify genomes by introducing or genetically correcting mutations in human cells and animal models.

Genome editing technologies have come a long way and have already advanced towards mammalian models and clinical trials in humans. These results force scientists to question the future and the implications of such powerful technology. Should we accept the genetic engineering of human embryos? If yes, when and in what capacity should we accept it?

Prominent scientists in the field have already initiated conversations regarding the ethical implications that arise when modifying the human genome. Preventing genetic diseases by human genetic engineering is inevitable. The slippery slope is if, and when, we start to use it for cosmetic changes such as eye color or for improving a desired athletic trait. A perfect example is surgery, which we have performed for hundred years for disease purposes and is now widely used as a cosmetic tool. Opening the doors for the genetic engineering of human embryos could, with time, lead to genetic manipulation for desirable traits, raising the fear of creating a eugenic driven human population.

Who are we to manipulate nature? For those who suffer from genetic diseases, the answer is not so simple. If we can safely prevent severe genetic diseases and create healthy humans, why not manipulate nature?

At this time the long-term effects of genome editing remain unknown, raising additional questions. As the field progresses, with appropriate regulations and guidelines, it will eventually co-exist alongside other major controversial topics like nuclear power and genetically modified organisms. Since ethics are different across the world, creating international guidelines will be a challenge, but a necessity. Strict regulations are in place for nuclear power, the same should be possible for the genetic engineering of human embryos. To outlaw genetic engineering entirely will be potentially declining a place at the discussion table, as the further utilization of such technologies is unlikely to be abandoned. (Click to Source)

Former Pentagon official confirms: UFOs “proved beyond reasonable doubt”

Collage Ufo Invasion Forest

Saturday, December 30, 2017 by: 

(Natural News) For decades scores of people from around the world have sworn that they have seen alien spacecraft from outer space. No small amount of those sightings have occurred in the United States.

Yet each time the “official” word from our government has been that “alien beings” don’t exist because we’re all alone: No life exists in any other galaxy, those known and unknown, except human life.

That never sounded reasonable to most people, mind you, and with good reason. There is simply no way of knowing what form of life exists “out there” in space because it is so vast, we’ve yet to scratch the surface. Plus, it is the pinnacle of human arrogance to believe that because we can’t travel great distances through space, nothing else can, either.

Now, however, all doubts about whether other life forms exist has been erased by a former Pentagon intelligence officer who says there is convincing evidence that we’re not alone in the universe.

As reported by the UK’s Telegraph, Luis Elizondo, who once headed a secret U.S. government effort called the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP), says there exists evidence of highly advanced aircraft using technology that no nation on earth possesses.

In fact, he says the existence of such technology has been “proved beyond reasonable doubt.”

Elizondo ran the AATIP until October of this year from an office on the fifth floor of the Pentagon, which was funded with $22 million in “black ops money” from Congress. It was a real-life X-Files program which began in 2007 and has since been confirmed by the Defense Department.

In an interview with the Telegraph, Elizondo said a lot of things he could talk about were still classified, including whether or not he and his team had examined UFO (unidentified flying object) sightings around the world, or whether they had talked to any witnesses to such sightings.

“I’m not at liberty to discuss that,” he told the paper. “But we took a very comprehensive approach. Nothing was too small to investigate.”

However, he did say this: “In my opinion, if this was a court of law, we have reached the point of ‘beyond reasonable doubt.’ I hate to use the term UFO but that’s what we’re looking at.

“I think it’s pretty clear this is not us, and it’s not someone else, so one has to question where they’re from,” he added.

And while the precise number of sightings investigated as well as witnesses interviewed are also classified, the former Pentagon X-Files investigator said there has been “lots.” (Related: Americans will welcome ET visitation, says psychologist.)

He also said that his team found geographical “hot spots” during their probes, sometimes near nuclear facilities and power plants. Common factors of the movements of UFOs were also identified by the investigators, he said.

“It was enough where we began to see trends and similarities in incidents,” he said. “There were very distinct observables. Extreme maneuverability, hypersonic velocity without a sonic boom, speeds of 7-8,000mph, no flight surfaces on the objects. A lot of this is backed with radar signal data, gun camera footage from aircraft, multiple witnesses.

“There was never any display of hostility but the way they maneuvered, in ways no one else in the world had, you have to be conscious something could happen,” he added ominously.

It could just be that whatever or whoever was flying those crafts knew nothing earthlings could send against them was a serious threat.

In any event, after reports outed Elizondo’s program, attention shifted to the release of footage shot by a U.S. Navy pilot off San Diego in 2004.

Cmdr. David Fravor was flying an F/A-18 near the object and reported seeing a “white Tic Tac, about 40 feet long with no wings” that demonstrated out-of-this-world speed and maneuver capabilities.

As for the crafts themselves, Elizondo told the Telegraph: “I think it’s pretty clear it’s not us, and it’s not anyone else” flying them. (Click to Source)

Mystery over top secret UFO program deepens

UFO over Rio.  Photos by Cinimod Studio

The mystery of a top-secret UFO program has deepened after government officials claimed there was confusion about its purpose — while experts accused them of backtracking.

The Pentagon last week confirmed the existence of a $22 million program called the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) which investigated sightings of UFOs between 2007 to 2012, The Sun reported.

The revelation excited UFO fans around the world as it was the first time the US government had admitted investigating UFOs since 1969.

The organisation’s work was outed by Luis Elizondo when he told The New York Times he ran the shadowy Department of Defence program from 2007 to 2012 and continued to look into the issue until he resigned in October this year.

Two bombshell videos of unexplained UFO sightings by US military personnel — investigated by the AATIP — were also published.

However, when contacted by Sun Online, the spy organisation Defence Intelligence Agency claimed there had been some misunderstandings.

A spokesman said: “There is some confusion about this program and claims about its purpose in press reporting … the Defence Intelligence Agency has not released any information, files or videos.”

But Department of Defence officials disputed this, saying they did not know what “confusion” the Defence Intelligence Agency was referring to, and stating they had been “clear” about the program’s aims.

A Department of Defense spokesman said: “The AATIP’s mandate, when it existed, was to assess far-term foreign advanced aerospace threats to the United States.”

It is claimed the program ended in 2012, however Mr Elizondo said that he had continued to work with officials from the Navy and the CIA on the program until he resigned from office in October.

UFO experts have claimed that this disagreement could be the government trying to back-pedal because it isn’t “ready or willing” to disclose the information.

Ufologist Alejandro Rojas from Open Minds TV, which is dedicated to extraterrestrial life, said: “It does seem to me like they might be backtracking.

“They haven’t clarified exactly what the confusion is, but I’m not surprised that they are scrambling over this now.

“According to The Washington Post, Luis Elizondo essentially got the videos under somewhat false pretences.

“He claimed he wanted to use the videos for training pilots. He didn’t say he wanted to use the videos to demonstrate that UFOs are real, which is what’s happening.

“I think that’s why the clips are so short and — especially with the second one. There is so little information attached to it.

“I think perhaps they thought just in case somebody gets a hold of this and tries to turn it into a big UFO thing, we just won’t give them much information.

“It puts them in a spot because perhaps they’re not ready or even willing to come out and talk about this.

“And they didn’t intend these videos to be used for this purpose.

“It wouldn’t be the first time the government has tried to spin things in a different direction on this topic.

“But we’ve got Elizondo who led the program going on the record to talk about it — so it’s clear that they were investigating UFOs.”

Sun Online has now lodged a Freedom of Information request with the Defense Intelligence Agency for any other UFO files or videos related to AATIP. (Click to Source)

4,655 Reported UFO Sightings in 2017; 490 in California Alone ..

California Led U.S. with 490 UFO Sightings in 2017

UFO sightings are nothing new. The Puritans reported strange sightings and lights in the sky as early as the 1600s. With the advent of movies about outer space and unidentified flying objects came even more sightings. The National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC)  has an entire website dedicated to the “collection and dissemination of objective UFO data.” The organization curates reports of UFO sightings in the U.S. and Canada via a web form and a phone hotline, which has operated almost continuously since 1974. NUFORC logged a total of 4,655 sightings in 2017, down from the 2016 total of 5,619.

A recent report came from New Mexico on December 14. A woman reported that she and her husband saw a triangular object with bright green lights near Santa Fe. She claims they “saw an object flying across the Interstate in a southeasterly direction. It appeared triangular with bright green lights around its entire periphery.”

“From my husband’s perspective, it appeared larger than a full moon,” she reported. “By the time it crossed my field of vision (I was in the passenger seat), it appeared slightly smaller than a full moon. It was perhaps several hundred feet in front and above us and appeared to be moving at about 100 mph or less. It seemed to be heading down and then it vanished.”

NUFORC spoke with the witness via telephone and “found her to be very eloquent, and very sober-minded. We suspect that she is an excellent witness.”

NEXT: The Number of UFO Sightings by State

 California far and away submitted the most reports of UFO sightings, topping the list with 490 in 2017. Florida was next with 308, followed by Washington (192), Arizona (180), and New York (170). New Mexico, home to the famous 1947 UFO sighting in Roswell, came in at number 25 with 73 reported sightings. Perhaps surprisingly, Nevada, where the legendary Area 51 is located, reported only 55 sightings, coming in at number 29 overall. N. Dakota, Hawaii, and S. Dakota had the fewest reports, with 6, 13, and 16 respectively.

1. California 490

Some recent reports out of California include: an “orange light flying in the sky that was changing direction very rapidly” in Sacramento; “a small, quiet, blinking object; it’s movements were very smooth, unlike a plane or a helicopter” in Carmichael; a “group of about 25 chevron shaped crafts all glowing a soft orange color” in Daly City; a “large, dull red-colored, round object with a darker brownish glow around the outside going very fast” in Watsonville; and a “RED light seen at night gliding together and lights disappearing one by one along with sound” in Hawthorn.

I’ll leave it up to readers to decide how credible these claims are. Many of them could be attributed to drones, weather balloons,  military aircraft, or the recent SpaceX launch that rattled Californians. And NUFORC cautions readers to be on the alert “for flawed, or hoaxed, reports, particularly among those that have been submitted by individuals who elect to remain anonymous, and/or who provide no contact information with their reports.”

The site noted that they’ve been receiving a large number of prank calls to the hotline. “If you are one of the many young people who are placing prank calls to our Hotline, we would request that you cease using our telephone lines for recreational purposes!!” they wrote. “The bulk of the calls we are now receiving over the Hotline are prank calls, and often obscene, and we are requesting that callers of all ages not use our Hotline for frivolous purposes.  These nuisance calls have become an extreme inconvenience to the people who run the UFO Center, and they are interfering with our ability to provide an important service to people who wish to submit serious reports to our facility.”

NUFORC does provide a list (dating back to 1936) of what they believe are “the more dramatic, and/or more well documented, cases that have been reported to us over the last decade.” (Click to Site)

IS DISCLOSURE COMING? Clinton campaign chief tweets ‘lift veil’ after Pentagon UFO exposé

HILLARY Clinton’s former campaign manager has demanded the “veil over UFOs is lifted” in the wake of news about a secret US Government probe into the phenomena.

John Podesta, who was chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and Counselor to President Barack Obama, took to twitter to call for openness about aliens and UFOs after details of the Department of Defense Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification £16.5million secretive programme investigating the threat posed by UFOs were revealed this weekend.

According to a report from the New York Times, the US Government-funded programme investigated reports of UFOs between 2007 and 2012.

It was allegedly run by military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo, who is now a key player in a UFO research group set up by former Blink 182 singer Tom DeLonge.

Mr Podesta tweeted a link to reports about the explosive news saying: “Lift the veil.”

He added: “#TheTruthIsOutThere.”

Senator Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat who was the Senate majority leader at the time, requested the funding details for the programme before details emerged, also used social media to apply more pressure.

He tweeted a link to reports saying: “The truth is out there. Seriously,” adding a picture of a UFO.

“If anyone says they have the answers, they’re fooling themselves.

“We don’t know the answers but we have plenty of evidence to support asking the questions.

“This is about science and national security.

“If America doesn’t take the lead in answering these questions, others will.”

Mr Podesta has been at the centre of the new To The Stars Academy, launched by Mr DeLonge, which is crowdfunding to get funds to investigate UFOs.

And Mr DeLonge emailed Mr Podesta about the project, as revealed by Wikileaks disclosures during the Clinton campaign.

Mrs Clinton also pledged during her campaign that she would find out the truth about aliens and the mysterious Area 51 USAF base in Nevada if she made it to the White House.

In one e-mail sent in October 2015, the singer, who sang about extraterrestrials in the band’s 1999 song Aliens Exist, used the title “Important Things”.

Inside this email Mr DeLonge claimed he had two important contacts Mr Podesta should meet over the “sensitive topic” of UFOs and a film, novel and documentary he was working on, which involved an interview with Mr Podesta.

He wrote: “Tom DeLonge here, The one who interviewed you for that special documentary not too long ago.

“Things are moving with the project. The Novels, Films and NonFiction works are blooming and finishing.

“I would like to bring two very ‘important’ people out to meet you in DC.

“I think you will find them very interesting, as they were principal leadership relating to our sensitive topic.

“Both were in charge of most fragile divisions, as it relates to classified science and DOD (department of defence) topics.”

It is not clear if Mr Podesta replied to the e-mails or had any meetings.

Upon leaving Barack Obama’s administration, he tweeted his “biggest failure” was “not securing the #disclosure” of the UFO files. (Click to Source)

F-18 fighter plane captures stunning UFO on video… government admits UFO research is real

ufo-abduction-aliens-2

(Natural News) Following the release of a new report from The New York Times (NYT) about efforts by the United States government to investigate unidentified flying objects (UFOs) as a potential threat to national security, some amazing video footage has now been released suggesting that this threat may be more imminent than previously thought.

There have been at least two separate incidents now in which a U.S. Navy F/A-18 fighter jet apparently captured infrared video footage of what appears to be UFOs flying around in space. The one video contains audio of a conversation between the pilot and his weapons officer, both of whom sound flabbergasted over what they saw before their very eyes. The second video actually shows the plane’s radar apparatus locking onto the UFO, which is seen moving so quickly that it disappears offscreen before it can be fully tracked.

In an interview with NPR, portions of which were relayed by PJ Media‘s Rick Moran, an intelligence officer by the name of Luis Elizondo who headed up the Pentagon program responsible for probing UFOs explained how the intelligence asset is often unsure about what it sees flying in the sky – and this anomalous footage is no exception.

“If you’re asking my personal opinion from here, look, I’ve got to be honest with you, I don’t know where it’s from. But we’re pretty sure it’s not here,” Elizondo is quoted as saying, noting that the objects seen often move and rotate with almost magic-like ease and speed.

“Now does that mean it’s ‘out there?’ Whether or not it’s Russian or Chinese inside or little green men from Mars or frankly your neighbor’s dog, I wanted to purposely steer away from that because I wanted to focus on truly the raw science: what were we seeing and did it pose a threat to national security.”

Is Big Brother faking ‘disclosure’ in order to pull of a massive ‘cosmic false flag’ attack?

As interesting as this all might seem – the video and audio captured speak for themselves – the release of this information at a time such as this in human history is potentially suspect. That’s because, with things seemingly heating up in the space realm these days, it seems just a little bit too convenient that Big Brother has chosen now to suggest that UFOs may, indeed, be real.

Dr. Stephen Greer from Sirius Disclosure is one such skeptic who believes that the UFO and “extraterrestrial” narrative is all a ruse by the government to cover for manufactured false flag events of a cosmic nature that could one day be used to fake an alien invasion.

According to Dr. Greer, a large percentage of the so-called “UFO” events that are being witnessed or reported around the world do not originate from outer space. In his opinion, these are manufactured events by humans – mainly the military industrial complex – to trick humanity into believing that the world is being invaded by ET beings from other planets or galaxies.

What would be the purpose of this? In the view of Dr. Greer, certain government entities might try to use it as a cover in the event that enough people in society become awakened to the truth of things and start to challenge the status quo.

“If someone tries to stage an event, we’re all going to call it out as the hoax that it is… and not go along with that what I’m calling ‘scripted Armageddon,’” Dr. Greer is quoted as saying.

“They would love to see a shut down of our civilization and the extermination of about five billion people, through a conflict that they will stage, and they will manufacture Armageddon … the big one is going to be the launch of a hoaxed attack on the planet that would look 100% like an extraterrestrial event … and it is not.” (Click to Source)
