From Watts Up With That
Essay by Eric Worrall
Tucker Carlson recently asked why claims by David Grusch that the USA is in possession of alien artefacts and spacecraft is not top news. An obvious explanation – nobody has produced any evidence.
The original claim;
INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS SAY U.S. HAS RETRIEVED CRAFT OF NON-HUMAN ORIGIN
LESLIE KEAN AND RALPH BLUMENTHAL·JUNE 5, 2023
A former intelligence official turned whistleblower has given Congress and the Intelligence Community Inspector General extensive classified information about deeply covert programs that he says possess retrieved intact and partially intact craft of non-human origin.
The information, he says, has been illegally withheld from Congress, and he filed a complaint alleging that he suffered illegal retaliation for his confidential disclosures, reported here for the first time.
Other intelligence officials, both active and retired, with knowledge of these programs through their work in various agencies, have independently provided similar, corroborating information, both on and off the record.
The whistleblower, David Charles Grusch, 36, a decorated former combat officer in Afghanistan, is a veteran of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). He served as the reconnaissance office’s representative to the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force from 2019-2021. From late 2021 to July 2022, he was the NGA’s co-lead for UAP analysis and its representative to the task force.
Can you imagine the value of even a small item of alien origin, produced by science centuries or millennia ahead of our own? What impact this would have on human technology – personal nuclear reactors, AIs which can fit into a matchbox, handheld blaster guns straight out of Star Wars, all virtually overnight?
What is the chances the military could keep that kind of capability quiet?
We’d all love to believe we are not alone in a vast and so far terrifyingly empty cosmos.
But extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. And nobody has produced anything like the level of evidence required to make such claims convincing.
I’ll believe in alien artefacts when someone does something tangible to prove this – shows me an alien ray gun, or lands a flying saucer somewhere public. Otherwise the latest claim looks like just another chapter of the aliens among us nonsense people have been peddling all these decades, ever since elves and fairies went out of fashion.
For what it’s worth, I’m a big Tucker fan, I think he’s done a great job of exposing corruption, and holding the powerful to account. But Tucker, please don’t ask us to believe in space aliens, unless you know someone who can show us an operational flying saucer.
Update (EW): If anyone would like a more terrestrial explanation for the apparent uptick in military UFO sitings, check out the Russian Skyfall, their “flying Chernobyl“. The Soviets developed a working nuclear powered jet plane, the Tupolev Tu-95LAL, in 1961 – if you can call “working” a flying vehicle which kills the pilots, because of the lack of radiation shielding. This was a Soviet attempt at solving the problem of reaching the US mainland, before the widespread deployment of ICBMs. So it seems plausible that Putin isn’t lying when he claims Russia has built a nuclear powered cruise missile which can stay in the air for weeks. If Russia actually does have this capability, what better target to buzz than US military vessels which mistakenly believe they are well out of aerial reconnaissance range.
