Highly trained military pilots are seeing strange objects in the sky.
The Pentagon is increasingly concerned about UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena). The frequency of sightings has some U.S. military leaders and politicians worried that whatever these things are, they could pose a threat to national security.
Are UFOs the unifying force America needs?
In all seriousness, UFOs (or UAPs, whatever you want to call them) are a hot topic right now. And what is interesting about this sudden “threat” to America is that Democrats and Republicans are coming together on this issue.
Top Party leaders from both sides are speaking out about this weird development.
In early April, former CIA director R. James Woolsey told Black Vault, a website that collects paranormal case files, that he is “not as skeptical as I was a few years ago, to put it mildly,” about UFOs, and that “something is going on that is surprising to a series of intelligent aircraft, experienced pilots.”
Speaking to CBS’s “60 Minutes” last month, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said that while UFOs can still prompt a “giggle” from some lawmakers, “I don’t think we can let the stigma keep us from having an answer to a very fundamental question.”
And a day after Rubio’s comments aired, former president Barack Obama told CBS’s “The Late Late Show with James Corden” that “what is true — and I’m actually being serious here — is that there is footage and records of objects in the skies that we don’t know exactly what they are.”
UFOs — also known as unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs, in official parlance — are having their moment in politics, and a bipartisan one at that.MSN
Hillary Clinton and John Podesta both came out in 2016 saying Hillary would declassify a bunch of materials on what the government knows about UFOs.
Even Donald Trump slyly indicated he knows something about the 1947 Roswell, N.M. incident. “I won’t talk to you about what I know about it, but it’s very interesting,” Trump told his son during a 2020 campaign interview.
Whatever is going on “up there,” UFOs tend to bring some unity across political aisles, as both sides hold a mistrust of government authority and tend to think the government lies a lot – which it does.
Funny how the “red” and “blue” teams are finding common ground in flying saucers and little green men.
Huge swaths of the country are divided on basic facts — like who actually won the 2020 presidential election (Biden) — while the two political parties can’t even agree on a definition for what constitutes “infrastructure.” Yet when it comes to UAPs, there is emerging bipartisan and mainstream consensus that, as the “X Files” famously popularized, “The truth is out there.”MSN
