The UFO Phenomena and Coverup

“It is true that I was denied access to a facility at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, because I never got in. I can’t tell you what was inside. We both know about the rumors (concerning a captured UFO and crew members). I have never seen what I would call a UFO, but I have intelligent friends who have.”
~Senator Barry Goldwater, 1979

Excerpt from my e-book, The UFO Phenomena: The Cosmic SOS

“A 2002 Roper Poll indicated that three-quarters of the public claim that they are somewhat prepared for the discovery of extraterrestrial life and nearly half are very prepared. The poll also indicated that should the government make an announcement of the discovery of extraterrestrial life, only a small portion expect it to change their religious beliefs.

“So with statistics like that, why does our government continue this game of denial? So with statistics like that, why does our government continue this game of denial? Do they continue to fear what the 1960 Brookings Report concluded that people, especially the fundamentalist religionist, would panic and the world would be in chaos? It seems to me that the public is a little more realistic and accepting in this current age than we are being given credit for. Or does our government have other motives for keeping all this under wraps? Might it be that they don‘t want the citizens to know that they have no control, and there might be others out there with much more wisdom and advanced technology and have the well being of our planet and the cosmos as their first priority? Or does it come down to the usual―power and greed—and the need for superiority in our world? I‘ve got news for our government, the world is in chaos, and an acknowledgment that we are not alone in the universe may do a lot to give us hope that things might change for the betterment of all, not only American citizens but citizens of our world, and our space brothers.”

John Podesta, President Clinton's Chief of Staff from 1998 to 2001, is an advocate for government openness. At a national press club conference in 2002 he said the government should "open the books" on its UFO investigations. Podesta was co-chairman of the Obama-Biden Transition Project, and is currently President of the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank in Washington, D.C.

“I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark; on the question of government investigations of UFOs. It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it because it’s right; we ought to do it because the American people quite frankly can handle the truth; and we ought to do it because it’s the law.” ~John Podesta

"I know other astronauts share my feelings…. And we know the government is sitting on hard evidence of UFOs." ~Col. Gordon Cooper, Mercury, Gemini Astronaut

‘I have taken special interest in these accounts [of UFOs].. I think there may be substance to some of these reports… I think we owe it to the people to establish credibility regarding UFOs and to produce the greatest possible enlightenment on this subject.”
~President Gerald Ford

"I can assure you the flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on earth." ~Harry S. Truman, Washington DC, April 4, 1950.

"I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we've been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomena is real." ~Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 Astronaut

I can’t help but wonder if President Obama will have his hands tied, as it seems other Presidents have, or will he be able to give us some facts about the off-earth visitors?

I have seen several UFO's too, but they were in the lower atmosphere and very far away. That said, they were unidentified flying objects. I often watch satellites criss crossing the sky I can often spot twenty or thirty withing the first few hours after sunset.

However, on a few occassions some of these satellites had propulsion systems. Once while sleeping outdoors along the California Coast near San Francisco, an object was undulating at incredible speeds being followed by another object that was undulating. The second object sped past the first object and crossed its path and seemed to be playing with each other as they made there way to the Outer Coast of San Francisco where they seemed to stop and hover above the city.

On two other occasions I have seen what appeared to be a satelite flying in orbit. And then suddenly another light appeared just behind the first object and merged with the first object leaving only one light in orbit. I have seen this twice.

On another two occasions Stacey and I saw in orbit three Lights that were traveling in a triangle formation. Whether this was three seperate satellites or one larger entity or vehicle in space, we are not sure of.

I'd say my first account was the most other worldly and I would have a hard time believing that humans from our known societies were operating these vehicles. The other two accounts can just be advanced military space exercises, but either way they are unidentified and could have easily been E.T. in origin.

Bernie, by your descriptions I would guess some were not of this world. I've had several, but two major sightings which I wrote articles about on my To Dance With Angels website. A textbook author/teacher from Norway asked to use one of my articles in the book he was writing for 8th graders. In the same section he mentioned President Carter's sighting. I was honored to be included with Carter.

Maybe some day we will have answers.

I do hope the files will be opened. I will hold that thought! Open Government!
I have never seen an UFO but I think there are lots of life forms besides carbon based.
We are not alone!

There is life out there folks. I've been involved in the Galaxy Zoo, classifying galaxies. There are about 1,700,000 galaxies that have to be looked at and categorized. This is just a few of many millions more that have yet to be photographed. To think there is no other life in the universe is a very narrow view.

What me and my neighbors saw one night in Sedona, AZ convinces me that we are not alone.
