Moving has turned out to be a much bigger time-sink than I had anticipated, and I have found myself way behind on paperwork. Today’s post is a bit short to give me time to watch next week’s America Unearthed today, assuming Travel Channel makes it available as they have done with previous episodes.
It turns out that Giorgio Tsoukalos is a voice of reason in what passes for the UFO community. A satirical petition asking readers to travel to Area 51 in the hope that a mass “invasion” of UFO believers could overwhelm Air Force security and reveal government UFO secrets led to more than a million people digitally signing their names, and the Air Force issued a warning to potential participants not to cross into the restricted air field. Tsoukalos posted on Twitter yesterday that he did not endorse the effort.

After finishing the renovations at my new home, it is now moving day! Today the movers are coming to box up and load everything, and tomorrow it all arrives at the new house. I will be largely offline and away from blogging during the move. If everything goes well, I hope to be able to resume my normal schedule after the move is complete. I am not sure if the new cable package includes the Travel Channel, so we will see how it goes in reviewing the upcoming America Unearthed episode when (or if) it debuts online this week.
If you are looking for my review of the episode of America Unearthed that aired on July 2, I reviewed it last week when it debuted online. If the Travel Channel releases the following episode at midweek as they have been doing, I will review it this week. Otherwise, I will be taking off a couple of days for the holiday and will return Friday to review the next episode of Ancient Aliens.
David Wilcock hasn’t been having a very good couple of years. Only a few years ago, he was the third most prominent ancient astronaut theorist on Ancient Aliens, behind Giorgio Tsoukalos and David Childress, and he was one of the biggest stars of the Gaia TV streaming service, which featured hundreds of hours of programming from him. He also had a lucrative line of books and DVDs and a speaking tour. But then Wilcock made the critical error of turning subtext into text. With the exception of Tsoukalos, nearly all of the Ancient Aliens crew and their colleagues are right-wingers, but they manage to keep their conservative ranting mostly confined to short asides in YouTube videos and tweets. Wilcock, on the other hand, has been outspoken in his embrace of the most extreme pro-Trump conspiracy theories, including both Pizzagate and Q-Anon, and he has proudly declared himself a recipient of Russian propaganda, which he repeats uncritically. Between this and his contentious departure from Gaia, even the brain trust behind Ancient Aliens finally cut ties with Wilcock, who has not appeared on the show since Wilcock refused to participate in their episode interviewing John Podesta, whom Wilcock considers part of an anti-Trump, child-raping alien death cult.
