Trump’s Vow To Veto The NDAA May Prevent Us From Learning That We Are Not Alone

Trump Attempts To Prevent The Renaming Of Millitary Bases

According to White House, defense, and congressional sources, President Trump is threatening to veto legislation to fund the military, which might become one of his final acts in office.

Since June, Trump has reportedly told Republican lawmakers that he would veto the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) if it was to include an amendment to rename military bases honoring Confederate millitary leaders.

The names of 10 installations have been put into question, including: Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas and Fort Lee in Virginia.

The Senate Armed Services Committee would approve the amendment, proposed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, in a 25-2 vote. If the language used survives the floor vote and is included in the House version of the package, the president would have to veto the entire bill in order to prevent the names of these military bases from changing.

However, this proposal hasn’t just led to a disagreement with partisan Democrats but with those in Trump’s own cabinet. Mark Esper, the now former Defense Secretary, was fired by President Trump earlier this month, due to his attempt to work with Congress to codify the renaming of bases in the bill.

The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sen. James Inhofe, has indicated that this is a ‘big issue‘ for President Trump and that he has serious doubts that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, will put the legislation on the floor for a vote if it ‘has a veto on it‘.

Why Will Trump’s Potential Veto Prevent Us From Learning The Truth About UFO’s?

The NDAA doesn’t simply entail the renaming of military bases. Instead, it covers the annual millitary budget and a variety of other policies for the U.S. millitary, including pay rises, funding for new equipment, and an assortment of military projects, among other items.

Perhaps most notably, the NDAA contains references to UFOs, which could lead to dramatic new insights into recent military UFO sightings that have captured the attention of E.T. enthusiasts and the general public at large.

In June’s Intelligence Authorization Act (IAA), the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) authorized appropriations for the fiscal year of 2021 for the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force (see below for more information) and supported its efforts to reveal whether Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) have links to ‘adversarial foreign governments, and the threat they pose to U.S. military assets and installations.’

While the Senate passed the NDAA which included the IAA containing the language about the task force) in July, the House’s version of the NDAA, which passed during the same month, did not include the IAA. However, the Senate re-passed a version of the NDAA within the last few weeks (under the House bill number: H.R. 6395) that does include the IAA and instructions for the UAP task force.

However, the NDAA must be passed and signed before Congress adjourns on January 3rd. If President Trump decides to veto the act and both the House and Senate fail to produce a new version before the deadline, it will be back to square one… While this does not mean that information pertaining to UAP’s won’t be revealed period, it will mean that the genral public will have to wait even longer than was previously anticipated for the disclosure.

The Unidentifed Aerial Phenomenon Task Force:

On the 23rd June, The New York Times released an article on a ‘once-covert program to investigate unidentified flying objects’. The Pentagon would refuse to discuss the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force (UAPTF), which is being run by the Office of Naval Intelligence.

However, a Senate Committee Report, which was created to outline the spending of America’s intelligence agencies for the coming year, has provided some insight into this elusive program.

The committee would state that the aim of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force was to:

standardize collection and reporting on unidentified aerial phenomenon, any links they have to adversarial foreign governments, and the threat they pose to U.S. military assets and installations.’ The need for this program, they argue, stems from there being, ‘no unified, comprehensive process within the Federal Government for collecting and analysing intelligence on unidentified aerial phenomena, despite the potential threat.

Senate Committee Report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force

The committee has directed the Director of National Intelligence and Secretary of Defense to create a report within 180 days in an unclassified form.

The Committee is concerned that, as a result of several recent incidents of attempted unauthorized access to Naval Air Station Key West and Fort Story, Virginia by Chinese nationals, several security vulnerabilities have been discovered. Foreign adversaries may be systematically probing military installations and facilities, and it is important that the Department of Defense take responsibility for ensuring security measures are adequate.

Senator Marco Rubio, who is the acting chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, would reinforce the concerns over this phenomenon and the threat it could pose to America’s national security. He would state to a CBS affiliate that,

The bottom line is if there are things flying over your military bases and you don’t know what they are, because they’re not yours and they exhibit potentially technologies that you don’t have at your own disposal,  that to me is a national security risk and one that we should be looking into.

However, while this Senate committee report may give the impression that this is their first foray into this territory, it is anything but. In 2017, The New York Times revealed that out of the $600 billion annual Defense Department budget, $22 million was spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. Although this program was said to have been shut down in 2012, its backers have contended that while its funding by the Pentagon had ended, that the program remained in existence.

In April 2020, the Department of Defense would go on to confirm the authenticity of three videos captured by naval aviators, which were previously published in 2017/18. This came after a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the Black Fault.

The Times would go on to report that, ‘Navy pilots reported to their superiors that the objects had no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes, but that they could reach 30,000 feet and hypersonic speeds.’ The footage shows a blurred, silhouetted craft, of abnormal shape, moving through the air at speeds which reach up to 1,190/mph – a rate at which even the aviators onboard sensors struggled to lock on to.

Tom DeLonge, the founder of To the Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences, who initially released this footage would go on to state that:

We believe that this level of recognition is exactly what is required to eliminate the extreme skepticism surrounding U.A.P. events, so we can finally move forward to sharing and analyzing reliable data from respected institutions, […] After 70 years of misinformation, it’s time that we make progress to understand the extraordinary technology being observed during these events.

However, what is most remarkable are the statements of Eric W. Davis, an astrophysicist who worked as a subcontractor and consultant for the Pentagon’s U.F.O program since 2007. He would tell The Times that materials, from crafts of unknown origin, had been recovered and examined. So far, the Pentagon had failed to determine their source, which led him to conclude that, ‘We couldn’t make it ourselves.’ He would go on to claim that he has given a classified briefing to a Defense Department agency, while working for an Aerospace Corporation, about retrievals from ‘off-world vehicles not made on this earth’.

In February 2020, Popular Mechanics released an article on the ‘Pentagon’s Secret UFO Program’, after a yearlong investigation. They would suggest that, ‘The path to truly understanding the Pentagon’s current UFO problems doesn’t begin in 2008 with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the AAWSAP [Advanced Aerospace Weapons Systems Applications Program], but rather, a decade earlier…’

Robert T. Bigelow, the owner of Budget Suits of America and founder of Bigelow Aerospace, has shown passionate interest in both UFO’s and paranormal phenomenon. In 1995, Bigelow set-up the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (NIDS), which was self-described as, ‘a privately funded science institute engaged in research of aerial phenomena, animal mutilations, and other related anomalous phenomena.’ It would later be disbanded in 2004, however, in January 2008 he would establish the LLC – Bigelow Aerospace advanced Space Studies (BAASS). Approximately six months after BAASS opened its doors, it would, with the support of late senators Ted Stevens and Daniel Inouye, Harry Reid (Senate Majority Leader (2007-2015)), set up funding for the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) and the AAWSAP contract in the Supplemental Appropriations Bill of July 2008.

In March 2018, Reid would tell the New York,

It would be black money, we wouldn’t have a big debate on the Senate floor over it. They would put in their Defense appropriation bill, 11 million bucks. The purpose of it was to study aerial phenomena. The money was given, a directive was given to the Pentagon, to put this out to bid, which they did.

Harry Reid, Sennate Majority Leader, 2007-2015

On August 18, 2008, the contractors of the DIA issued a 32-page contract for commercial items for the AAWSAP. Bidding closed three weeks later and BAASS was awarded the full contract of $10 million.  A week later, Bigelow Aerospace would begin listing career opportunities with BAASS.

While the advertisement does not directly mention or have language related to UFO’s, its phrasing that, its ‘primary focus is on breakthrough technologies and applications that create discontinuities in currently evolving technology trends’, and that ‘the focus is not on extrapolations of current aerospace technology’, is highly suggestive.

However, the question remains – ‘Where are these unidentified flying objects from?’ Are they a product of China, who has, unbeknownst to the Western world, technologically advanced to the point where they can severely outmatch any U.S aircraft? Or, is this something more alien to U.S. soil than the Chinese? Have we really been visited by little green men, or have our imaginations just run wild?

Chinese Origin:

In 2019, CNN reported on the ‘Super Great White Shark’, an ‘armed helicopter’ which looks remarkably like the stereotypical depiction of a UFO. The craft was displayed at the China Helicopter Exposition in Tianjin; it is 7.6 meters long, nearly 3 meters high, and can hold a crew of two.  

A translation of the placard next to the Super Great White Shark at the exhibtion would read:

[The] Super Great White Shark armed helicopter is a composite wing-body fusion high-speed helicopter configuration designed for the future digital information battlefield. In the initial stage of its design, it refers to the international excellent and mature helicopter design technologies, such as AH-64 Apache, CH-53 Sea Stallion, and Russian Ka-52, Mi-26. While absorbing their respective advantages, it adopts the internationally popular wing-body fusion (BWB) [blended wing body] design and the former. A new type of high-speed helicopter with [a] conceptual design of propeller blades has been successfully applied in helicopter design.

While it remains unlikely that this type of craft has alluded American fighter-pilots, millitary officials, and government bodies since 2017, it isn’t out of the question that China has advanced technologically, to the point where it could out match the capabilities of US aerial forces. However, there remains very little information in the public body to determine if China has indeed managed to create new technologies that could do this.

Extra-Terrestrial Origin:

The disclosure of this information has led many to contend that we are not alone, and that the Pentagon’s recognition of these unidentifed crafts is just one step closer to the truth.

Vinay Menon would argue that ‘the world owes him [Lazar] an apology‘, after being labelled as a ‘fraud‘, ‘liar‘, ‘conspiracy theorist‘ and ‘UFO hoaxster‘.

In May 1989, Bob Lazar achieved notoriety after appearing in an interview (under the pseudonym ‘Dennis’) with the investigative reporter George Knapp on the Las Vegas TV station KLAS to discuss his employment at S-4: a secret government military facility, which he purported was located near the Nellis Air Force Base Installation (Area 51) and adjacent to Papoose Lake.

Lazar would claim that his role was to help reverse engineer one of nine crafts, which he alleged were of extra-terrestrial origin. Upon joining the porgram, Lazar read a variety of briefing documents which would explain that Earth has been visited by alien beings (The Grey’s) for the last 10,000 years; who originate from a planet orbiting the twin binary star system Zeta Reticuli.

The vehicle that Lazar would work on, coined the ‘Sports Model‘, was manufactured out of a metallic substance (similar in both touch and appearance to stainless steel). The specific nature of Lazar’s work was to understand the propulsion system of this craft. He would discover that it was fuelled using a stable isotope of element 115 (which was only synthesized in 2003 and later named Moscovium). This would enable three gravity generators to lift the vehicle and allow it to fly in orbit and space.

In an interview, Bob Lazar would describe how these crafts operate:

There are three amplifiers. The craft can operate on a single one, it can lift off the ground. The way in which it’s propelled are two different ways: There is what they call omicron configuration, where the craft is using one generator or delta configuration where it’s using all three. Delta configuration would be for space travel, essentially the craft will tilt up on its side, as opposed to a science fiction movie where you see a flying saucer moving around, the craft will tilt on its side, focus its three gravity generators to a single point and move through space that way. Moving round a source of gravity is a problem to a disk because its interference essentially, so what they do is work with that interference to their benefit. They’ll use one gravity generator to lift the craft off the ground, and as opposed to what were used to, for instance a plane, once its in the air we envision thrust or some force coming out the back of it to push it forward, the crafts work completely opposite of that. What they do is once their hovering in the air they’ll swing the two remaining gravity generators up in front of them and create a distortion, essentially a downhill, and the craft rolls downhill for infinity, its always chancing a little distortion. That’s why they look goofy when they fly around at low speed, […] because the gravity field around the earth is not completely constant or stable, it depends on the minerals or the density of the earth underneath it, gravity will vary somewhat and you will get odd movements of the craft – so its low speed mode is kind of unstable for the most part.

Bob Lazar

In the three videos authenticated by the Navy this year, each craft can be seen rotating and flying belly-up, exactly as Lazar described in the 1980’s. This has led some to believe that he has finally been ‘vindicated‘ (as Joe Rogan wrote earlier this year).

If Trump does decide to veto the NDAA then we will have to wait and see what ammendents the House and Senate make in order have it passed by the president. While it remains unlikely that items pertaining to the disclosure of information about UAP’s will be removed, many will become increasingly uncertain as time passes. However, if President Trump decides to not veto the act and it is passed, we can expect to see information on UAP activities begin to appear within 180 days subsequent to the acts passing. What this might include remains to be seen, however, with each new finding we draw ever closer to the fact that we are not alone in this universe…or that the Chinese have significantly outmatched the technological capabilities of the West.

Either way… The Truth is Out There!

While humanity has has continuously ventured into the unknown, today we are on the precipice of a new uncertainty. With covid, political unrest, and economic decline we feel that another sinister turn is just round the corner. Although discussion, art, and storytelling won't necesserily create any solutions for this in the short-term it might provide a conduit for productive thought, or at the very least might take our minds off our current reality.
