Just last month President Trump signed the “Space Policy Directive 1” – a directive that orders NASA to start sending American astronauts back to the Moon and eventually Mars. I always thought that was where NASA was headed, but perhaps not based on the slow progress to date in making anything happen in this regard. I, for one, was beginning to wonder; perhaps President Trump and others in Congress were wondering as well. The White House press release went on to say, “The President…will change our nation’s human spaceflight policy to help America become the driving force for the space industry, gain new knowledge from the cosmos, and spur incredible technology.” Makes one wonder what “new knowledge” we will gain from the cosmos. Perhaps that we are not alone? Or what “incredible technology” will suddenly appear. An interesting statement since for nearly eight years now the United States hasn’t been able to put a man in space. We have been using Russian technology to do so.
Intelligent minds must wonder what is really going on behind the scenes, and this was one of the reasons for the theme of our 2017 MUFON Symposium, “The Case for a Secret Space Program.” Hopefully we’ll learn very soon as I was recently informed by a former NASA employee that President Obama, before he left office, signed a directive authorizing six different groups to begin releasing information on extraterrestrial life and the fact that we are not alone in the universe. From recent announcements, it is clear that at least one of those groups is the new TTS venture by Tom DeLonge. One would have to assume that NASA and JPL are two other groups given this same directive. Who the other three are is a mystery to me. Perhaps someone reading this knows the answer to that question and can enlighten all of us. But does it really matter? The point is, we are going to begin seeing a flood of official notifications, on a rather frequent basis, that we are not alone in the universe. Something that MUFON has been saying for 50 years now. Oh, and that there is some nifty technology that is going to benefit us all. Get ready people of Earth. Hmmm, sounds very much like our mission statement: “The Scientific Study of UFOs for the Benefit of Humanity.”
As MUFONers, we stand with open arms welcoming our brothers and sisters from the establishment, whether that be our government, DOD, private industry, or the intelligence community, who wish to share the truth with us. We are more than ready for it, as is the rest of humanity. Welcome to 2018!
