A bizarre online campaign suggesting that UFO enthusiasts storm Area 51 in search of alien secrets hidden at the infamous base has seemingly garnered the support of nearly 200,000 people. The wild idea is reportedly the brainchild of a group of online agitators who created a Facebook event titled ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us.’ Although the proposed gathering appears to have been just a joke, the concept captured the imagination of the masses online.

To date, a whopping 181,000 people have declared that they are ‘attending’ the event and another 200 thousand individuals have expressed interest in joining in on the action which is set to take place on Friday, September 20th at 3 AM. Of course, as anyone who has haphazardly accepted an online invitation to a distant relative’s art gallery opening or dance recital can attest, the vast majority of the people who indicated plans to join in the horde almost certainly will not be in attendance when the big day arrives.

That said, there’s a very real possibility that some foolhardy individuals may genuinely make an effort to storm Area 51 on September 20th when organizers allegedly plan to “meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry.” Aside from the installation’s incredibly stringent security measures which prevent unauthorized visitors, the very fact that the date and time of the planned surge is public knowledge is a pretty good indication that the daring gambit will prove futile. It could also wind up being criminal should would-be trespassers push the proverbial envelope and really try to gain entry to the base.

Area 51 researcher George Knapp, who famously broke the story that Area 51 existed back in 1989, responded to the idea on Twitter by noting that “this plan has been proposed multiple times over the last 30 years. Then, as now, it’s a really bad idea.” To that end, he stressed that “there are no aliens at Area 51, no alien tech either” and that “base security is more than capable of handling Winnebago trespassers.” With that in mind, it would undoubtedly be wise for the idea to remain in the daydreams of UFO enthusiasts sitting at their computer rather than being put into practice.

If there are no Aliens at the base, then what in the hell are these?

Recent UFO Encounters With Navy Pilots Occurred Constantly Across Multiple Squadrons

The War Zone

One of the biggest questions surrounding the most recent known spate of UFO encounters with U.S. Navy pilots—those that occurred off the southeastern seaboard of the United States between 2014 and early 2015—pertains to how persistent they actually were. We know Super Hornet aircrews from Strike Fighter Squadron 11 (VFA-11), the Red Rippers, detected unknown objects multiple times on radar and one aircrew even had a close encounter visually with one of them, but what about the rest of the many Hornet squadrons based at Naval Air Station Oceana, not to mention the E-2 Hawkeye squadrons from nearby NAS Norfolk? We have the answer to this question and it is remarkable.

A source with knowledge of the events has made it clear to The War Zone that presence of the mysterious objects in the restricted training airspace off America’s east coast was so pervasive that it was largely common knowledge among local flying units. They noted that the majority of the Super Hornet squadrons equipped with AN/APG-79 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars—you can read all about this technology and how it was key in detecting these objects in our exclusive piece on the subject—at the time were having the same experiences, as well as the crews flying the new E-2D Hawkeye with its incredibly powerful AN/APY-9 radar suite. It literally became such a common and near everyday occurrence that Naval Aviators and Naval Flight Officers from the base would talk about it informally with regularity.

The E-2D Hawkeye is one of the most capable aerial surveillance platforms ever created.

But that doesn’t mean formal action wasn’t taken. Beyond filing an official safety report after one of the jets almost hit one of the unidentified objects—described eerily as a translucent sphere with a cube structure suspended inside of it—Notices To Airman (NOTAMs) were posted regarding the dangers potentially posed by unknown aerial vehicles flying in the same military operating areas that aircraft from NAS Oceana frequented for training. This action was taken by the base’s command leadership as they couldn’t figure out how else to address the bizarre issue and its perceived threat to their aircrews’ safety.

We have since filed Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests for copies of these NOTAMs, as well as documents regarding how the decision to file the NOTAMs was made at the command level.

Another burning question surrounding these events pertains to whether or not additional visual encounters occurred beyond the one near miss with the Super Hornet and the ‘cube inside an orb’ object. Our source tells us that there were many more, and yes, they all resulted in the exact same description of the object. So, we are talking about a uniform set of very strange looking objects here that were spotted on radar, by infrared targeting pods, and by the naked eye, frequently over 2014 and the first part of 2015 above the waters off America’s southeastern coastline.

As we noted in our last piece on the subject, these encounters dropped off to the point they were described as fleeting and inconclusive at best once VFA-11 and its carrier air wing went on cruise to the Middle East in early Spring of 2015. In addition, we know that the carrier strike group and its aircraft were equipped with key new sensor fusion technologies for that deployment, a fact that is eerily similar to the circumstances surrounding the now famous ‘Tic Tac’ incident nearly a decade earlier. All of which makes these objects’ presence during the time leading up to that deployment that much more curious.

Yet at the same time, the fact that the volume of these recent encounters seems much greater and spread over a much larger period of time versus the infamous incident in 2004 is puzzling. And none of this even addresses the very peculiar physical appearance of these objects, but we have another report on that subject that will be filed in the very near future.

Still, at least we now have a much better sense of how widespread these encounters were and the cultural impact that they had on the Navy’s east coast master fighter jet base. This also underscores just how taboo this topic was to military aviators. The fact that these types of events could have been so pervasive, yet kept so hushed-up outside of Navy tactical aircraft aircrew circles, is telling in itself and provides good evidence as to why the Navy had to officially change is procedures for its personnel reporting such strange incidents.

All this comes as Congress is taking a high-interest in the subject as of late, with multiple briefings being given to key lawmakers with the military’s top witnesses.

Whatever the case may be, we are definitely entering into uncharted territory when it comes to this long shunned and abused topic. What exactly that will mean when it comes to actually getting to the truth of the matter remains to be understood.

Exorcist bishop pours holy water on ‘evil city’ from helicopter

A CATHOLIC bishop will pour holy water over a city from a helicopter to carry out an “exorcism” on “demons”.

Ruben Dario Jaramillo Montoya wants to use his position as Bishop of Buenaventura, in Columbia, to purge the streets of evil.

Montoya told local radio station Blu Radio: “We want to go around the whole of Buenaventura, from the air, and pour holy water onto it to see if we exorcise and get out all those demons that are destroying our port, so that God’s blessing comes and gets rid of all the wickedness that is in our streets.”

Local media report the National Army support the bishop’s plan and have offered him the use of a helicopter to carry it out.

The bishop said: “Buenaventura should have the Devil taken away so that we can see if we can get back the tranquillity the city has lost with all this crime, wickedness and the drug trafficking that is hitting our port.”

It is said that the exorcism will take place between July 13 and 14, during a local festival.

Between January and May this year, 51 homicides were reported in the city, 20 more than in the same period last year.

The latest murder in the city shocked the country when Diana Tatiana Rodriguez, 10, was found with clear signs of having been tortured and sexually abused.

Her uncle, Jhon Edwar Quintero Urquiza was arrested and reportedly confessed to the crime.

Buenaventura is one of the municipalities which was worst hit by the armed conflict in Colombia.

The municipality turned into a strategic spot for the drug route to the United States.

In 2010, a car bomb attack killed nine people injured more than 20.

Pentagon Confirms Interest in UFOs

The Department of Defense has confirmed what many in the world of UFO research have long suspected: that the government investigates UFOs. The remarkable revelation came by way of a statement provided to the New York Post by DoD spokesperson Christopher Sherwood in response to an inquiry about the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) which came to light back in December of 2017. Concerning the work that had been done by the program, he conceded that AATIP “did pursue research and investigation into unidentified aerial phenomena,” meaning, in a traditional sense, UFOs.

While, on the face of it, this may sound like common sense to UFO enthusiasts who have argued for decades that the government was interested in the phenomenon and simply did not want the public to know, the very fact that a Pentagon official admitted as much is being seen as quite significant to those who study the mystery. Former UFO investigator of the UK’s Ministry of Defense, Nick Pope, called the DoD statement a “bombshell” because, until now, the Pentagon had largely “left the door open to the possibility that AATIP was simply concerned with next-generation aviation threats.” However, he mused, “this new admission makes it clear that they really did study what the public would call ‘UFOs.'”

Pope’s opinion on the surprising nature of the statement was echoed by indefatigable archivist of strange and unusual government documents, John Greenewald, who told the Post that he was “shocked they said it that way, and the reason is, is they’ve seemingly worked very hard not to say that.” He went on to note that the revelation from the DoD constitutes “actual evidence” that AATIP did, indeed, investigate UFOs. Observing that “we’re one step closer to the truth,” Greenwald expressed hope that the Pentagon will reveal more details about AATIP at some point in the not too distant future.

Beyond the insight concerning AATIP, one particularly compelling aspect of the Pentagon statement is that the DoD said that they “will continue to investigate, through normal procedures, reports of unidentified aircraft encountered by US military aviators.” This would appear to indicate that investigation of UFOs is an ongoing concern and not something that ended when AATIP was said to have been shuttered in 2012. It is also in keeping with a statement made last month by the U.S. Navy concerning a change to UFO reporting guidelines in which the service revealed that they have investigated unidentified aircraft sightings “in recent years.”

Taken together, the two statements would certainly seem to suggest that the government is not only keenly aware of the UFO phenomenon, but is, in some instances, actively trying to investigate the mystery. It remains to be seen whether or not we’ll ever find out what, if anything, they’ve determined about the enigmatic anomalies so often seen in our skies. That said, UFO enthusiasts should be optimistic in the sense that at least the government is finally willing to acknowledge the phenomenon which has, for the most part, been verboten until recently.
