On Thursday, Kari Lake appeared on Newsmax with Eric Bolling to discuss the events of the past week. On Wednesday, Hunter Biden’s plea deal fell apart and then on Thursday President Trump was charged with additional crimes.
That was the easy stuff. But then the discussion turned to the Congressional hearings on UFOs.
The US Congress has held a public hearing on claims the government was concealing a longstanding program that retrieves and reverse engineers unidentified flying objects (UFOs).
Three retired military veterans testified on Wednesday before a House Oversight Subcommittee that was Congress’s latest foray into the world of UAPs – unidentified aerial phenomena, the term the US government uses instead of UFOs.
The US government has begun taking the issue of UAPs more seriously in recent years, pushing for more research as the sightings observed could be a national security matter.
The central worry was that the sightings potentially are unknown aerial surveillance technology used by China to collect intelligence on US defenses.
Retired Major David Grusch, one of the veterans who testified on Wednesday, said he was asked in 2019 by the head of a government task force on UAPs to identify all highly classified programmes relating to the task force’s mission.
At the time, Grusch was detailed to the National Reconnaissance Office, the agency that operates US spy satellites.
“I was informed in the course of my official duties of a multi-decade UAP crash retrieval and reverse engineering program to which I was denied access,” he said.
When asked whether the US government had information about extraterrestrial life, Grusch said the US likely has been aware of “non-human” activity since the 1930s.
US Representative Tim Burchett supported the idea that the government was concealing information, saying at the opening of the hearing – which also featured testimony from two former Navy officers who said they witnessed UAPs – that “we’re going to uncover the cover-up”.
Of course, the hearing on UFOs was likely thrown in to dilute the Biden Crime Family news in the middle of this.
Kari Lake commented on the alien hearing: “If the extra-terrestrials ever do come to this planet I hope they are not brought to our “leader” because I really don’t want the first introduction they have to human beings to being this mumbling, bumbling, fool, diaper-wearing, child-sniffing lunatic.”
