UFOs: The Elephant in the Cosmic Room

“A history of Ufology is a history of human consciousness.” ~ Richard Dolan

In November of 2011, for the first time in U.S. history, the White House was obligated to publicly release a statement regarding its official position on UFOs and Extraterrestrials, thanks to a petition (which had gathered enough online signatures) submitted to the “We the People” site. The gist of the White House response was this:

The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye.

This response is not surprising. It has been the official position of the U.S. government on this issue since the early history of UFOs back in the 1940s. But what’s significant here is that the White House has finally issued an official statement, and it has opened itself up to a follow-up petition — a bolder and more strongly-worded petition that mentioned actual names along with documentations which implicated the Clinton administration. The petition reads as follows:

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO immediately investigate UFO/ET Disclosure efforts during the Clinton administration – the Rockefeller Initiative.”

Disclosure Petition II – The Rockefeller Initiative

The Obama administration has formally stated, “The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race.”

If true, what was Clinton’s Office of Science and Technology Policy investigating from March 1993 to October 1996 in concert with billionaire, Clinton friend, Laurance Rockefeller?

Those who knew and have not spoken publicly of this initiative include: President Bill Clinton, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, Obama transition chairman John Podesta, Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta, Vice President Al Gore and Gov. Bill Richardson.

UPDATE: Here’s an audio snippet from an interview with Stephen Bassett wherein he explained Disclosure Petition II.

I hope the petition gets the required 25,000 signatures so that the White House will be obligated to issue a public statement on this matter. It would be interesting to see how the White House would respond. That’s why I signed it.

But that’s not the only reason why I signed it.

I believe that the UFO phenomenon is real, and we the people have a right to know whatever it is. I’m referring to the authentic sightings (about 5% of the reported sightings) that cannot be explained by lame explanations like “weather balloon,”  “the planet venus,” and “swamp gas.” The next logical question of course is, are UFOs from outside of Earth, or are they some advanced technology which are hidden from the denizens of this planet, or both? The White House can keep saying that there is no evidence that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged the human race, but it can never deny the U.S. government’s interest in UFOs, especially when there are historical documents that prove that the government is not being truthful.

It doesn’t take a paranoid conspiracy theorist to know that the U.S. government lies to its citizens and the world. And anyone who says that the people in the government can’t keep a secret has a very short-term memory, or just plain naive. The U.S. government has power over its people and it controls the mightiest military in the world. We can only wonder what the Military Industrial Complex is up on its sleeves with its unlimited black budget. In the eyes of its informed citizens, the U.S. government has lost its credibility long ago, without even bringing up the subject of UFOs.

The UFO cover up is the mother of all cover ups, but at the same time, it is the Elephant in the Cosmic Room. Based on the opinion polls on UFOs and ETs, the majority of people already believe. It’s also interesting to note that the more educated and intelligent the person is, the more likely he/she is to believe that UFOs are from another planet. Of course, polls don’t necessarily prove anything. But what it does is show that majority of the people are more than ready for a Disclosure.

But Disclosure is one thing, the real impact of a Disclosure is another. Maybe the majority of people can handle the psychological shock of a disclosure that UFOs are real and that we are being visited by extraterrestrials, but are we ready as a society to face global disruptions of epic proportions?

I can almost sympathize with the U.S. government (or even the shadow governments around the world) for keeping this a secret. An official disclosure would cause unimaginable disruptions to our global economy (think the end of petroleum and the collapse of the stock market), geopolitics, religion, academia and scientific establishments. The book After Disclosure by Richard Dolan and Bryce Zabel intelligently speculates and deals with all these scenarios. It’s a must-read to prepare ourselves psychologically, emotionally, politically, financially, and even spiritually should disclosure finally happen within our lifetime.

As Richard Dolan would say, “disclosure is impossible, but inevitable.” I believe that he is right. It’s a logical conclusion because our technology is accelerating exponentially and we are on the verge of leap-frogging our own evolution as a species. As communication becomes instantaneous and global, and smart phones with cameras become ubiquitous, it’s only a matter of time before the secret-keepers concede that they can no longer hide the secret from the masses. But here’s the rub. Maybe we can accept the reality of UFOs and ETs (thanks partly to Hollywood), but can we handle the revelation of a breakaway civilization? (watch Richard Dolan’s presentation for more context.)

Whenever, however which way Disclosure happens, I think we’re in for an epic collective shakedown, on the ground and up in the sky. So let’s buckle our seats Dorothy because Kansas is going bye-bye.
