New Article Claims Military Has "Clear" Photo of Flying Triangle Rising from Ocean
As most of you probably know, Tim McMillan has an article in the new online news site The Debrief in which he outlines the continued Pentagon interest in the question of flying saucers, or "unidentified aerial phenomena" as they have been known among the military on and off for the past seven decades or so. The article, which is a bit shaggy and at times somewhat unclear, contains some new details about previously reported interactions between the To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science and lower-level staffers for the U.S. Senate:
A former private contractor for AAWSAP and AATIP, Dr. Hal Puthoff, confirmed for The Debrief he was one of a handful of persons who conducted the October briefings. “I have been invited to brief congressional staffers on the Senate Armed Services Committee on UAP matters in the last couple of years,” Puthoff said in an email, “and have done so on more than one occasion.” Dr. Puthoff described the staffers during these meetings as being “engaged,” and provided “positive responses, [and] more details always being requested.”
We already knew this, but it is still sad to see that a man who has spent decades researching interdimensional space poltergeists is feeding his nonsense to Congress. On the other hand, Congress is riven with conspiracy theories and false facts. Nevertheless, when senators send staffers to meetings, it is generally a sign they do not consider the issue important, or else they would have taken the meeting themselves.
By far, however, the most sensational claim in the article is also one that McMillan provides no evidence to support, a hearsay claim that an intelligence report contains a "clear" photograph of a triangle-shaped craft that rose from the ocean:
The photograph, which is said to have also been taken from inside the cockpit of a military fighter jet, depicted an apparent aerospace vehicle described as a large equilateral triangle with rounded or “blunted” edges and large, perfectly spherical white “lights” in each corner. Officials who had seen it said the image was captured in 2019 by an F/A-18 fighter pilot.
This account is at least a third-hand recitation of whatever happened, and it raises a number of questions about the logistics of the story. The claim, of course, rests on the photograph, and it is beyond curious that no one is curious. Neither the military nor the Senate reacted at all as though they had just seen proof positive of space aliens, or the lost technology of the Deros in the Shaver Mystery's underground and undersea lairs. They acted like kids who just discovered porn. McMillan describes the two Pentagon UFO intelligence reports going "viral" among government workers who tittered about it and did nothing.
If the alien invasion ever does come, I suppose the aliens know that we will be easy pickings. No one is going to lift a finger to stop them, but someone might write a report about it six months to a year later.
UPDATE: McMillan posted a leaked copy of a Navy photo of one of the UFOs this afternoon. At first glance, it appears to depict a balloon or a drone, suggesting a good reason no one cared too much. SECOND UPDATE: A Twitter user convincingly showed the balloon to be a Mylar Batman children's novelty balloon.

In case no one's noticed, we are a species that (a) taught itself to talk so it could tell itself how wonderful it is, (b) defined "intelligent" so as to only apply to itself, and (c) fails to live up to even that self-aggrandizing definition 99.999% of the time; and the other .001% of the time is evidently by sheer accident.

Maybe they were here to deliver ballot counting machines.

You've inspired me to tweak the meaning of the au courant TTSA and Pentagon acronym UAP.

This is OLD news and NOT Aliens. Google Earth caught a crystal clear image of this craft flying over Australia. A craft which flew over Belgium in 1992. At one time, this photo was available at the Coast to Coast AM website. I may still have a copy saved to a floppy disk. That right there, should tell you how old this news is. I would have to break out my computer running on Windows 98 to pull it up.

Uh, yeah, no. On the other hand I've seen such craft myself several times. On The X-Files.

You're definitely not as smart as you think you are. This is so easily verifiable by a simple Google search. Took me all but a fraction of a second.

Yet it doesn't cast a shadow, suggesting the satellite and the sun were directly about it (cool coincidence, bro) or it's stuff on the ground. Bazinga.

Maybe he meant that Hal Puthoff’s head is shaped like a large equilateral triangle with rounded or blunted edges.

Hahaha - oh their proof is always so much more underwhelming than they describe it as. That’s pretty obviously going to be a manmade balloon or something. And hardly a giant UFO staring a pilot in the face.

Congress takes paranormal rubbish very seriously and Congress regards scepticism as a curiosity. Congress has still not caught up, in 2020, with the difference between wishful thinking and putting things to the critical test. That also applies to the Military.

These lights could very well be triangle shaped - there's no reason why not. But it's more than likely that it's all an optical illusion because if it was possible to get right up close to these objects their far-off appearance would disappear and it could become apparent that they are gaseous substances.''

How clever of these poltergeist aliens from another dimension to disguise themselves as a batman balloon.

After listening to the likes of John Kennedy and Daisy Hirono speak for more that 30 seconds I am confident that Congress is the best place to take a long distance photo of a Batman balloon and try to spin it as a UFO.

There should be a rule like in SAG/AFTRA where everyone has to use a different name that no one in government can be called "John Kennedy". I once worked for a guy named James Bond and it always felt weird.

Moving on, Dec. 2 Templar idiocy on Scott Wolter's blog. Have at it.

When I was a Senate aide I had to meet with anyone who made an appointment, no matter how nuts they were! In fact, as I tended to be more patient than most and had double majored in Political Science and Psychology, they tended to give me most of the nuts. I met with quite a few urologists and the like.

Don't need to hear about your plumbing problems.

I noticed in Black Vault that someone used the freedom of information act to force the FBI to release its files on Meade Layne and his Borderlands organisation. Don't forget that without Meade Layne and his buddy Gerald Light there would be no President Eisenhower-Space Aliens connection. That rubbish all began with Meade Layne and Gerald Light.
