A Navy-man's view of Black Ops and UFOs

This is an e-mail to us, with a link to a blog that visitors here should find interesting:

Guys,

I laugh out loud every time I read all the Area 51 idiots talking on the web forums and discussing all the black ops the Air Force is involved in.

I am retired Navy and I learned a long time ago from some fairly high ranking officers one thing. F*cking Air Farce [sic] can't keep a secret. Ever since what ever went down around Roswell and else where ,when they ran right out and told the world and everybody had to backtrack and cover the dumbsh*t's asses, the USAF has never been privy to jack sh*t of real importance or secrecy.

EVERYTHING has been under the control of the Navy Department. There is so much money buried in Navy's budget that nobody even questions it. Hell most of the over runs on ship construction is actually funds siphoned off for other secret ops. Everybody bitch's and there is an "investigation" maybe a fine but the same companies still keep getting contracts and nobody says a thing. It is a game.Who built Greenbriar? The Navy. Who maintains all the embassy's around the world? The Navy.Who maintains Camp David? The Navy. We all know how screwed up the army corps of engineers are. There are no looky loo's sitting on mountains around NAS China Lake. No bozos, sitting in boats off San Nicholas Island off the coast of California either. NAS Adak Alaska sure has a lot of activity for a base that is closed. Nice long runway and hangars still being maintained.

I will give you a link to a web site that discusses a 1 BILLION dollar construction contract awarded by the Navy. Read the article and back track on the company's, the directors of the company's and the sub contractors involved. If you find a person's name or a subsidiary "google" it. Guys remember the Navy has closed a boatload of bases recently, Adak.Alaska ,Iceland, Puerto Rico, are closed ,Gitmo mostly has no personnel. Why the contingency planning. The Navy has the Seabees's who do this for the Navy (I was one). They have even approved adding another Seabee battalion to the active fleet at a time when they are decommissioning ships and squadrons. So why the Billion dollar contract? LOOK at what the other contracts the companies that are involved in this one also have. It will make you go Hmmm?

Oh and could you please send me the password to your papers? It you do, I'll let you see my blog about an incident that happened to me.

Heck I'll show you now:

The Metamorphoses of UFOs and Ufology

dali23.jpg

UFOs, as we’ve noted earlier, have morphed from chariots of the gods, to mysterious airships of the late 19th Century, to attendant lights of WWII, to flying saucers of the 50s, to human-capturing ships of the 60s, to airfoils of various kinds in the 70s and 80s, until their latest incarnation as delta-shaped craft of the 90s.

triangle23.jpg

In 2007, UFOs have gone back to erratic lights in the sky pretty much.

What hasn’t changed is how UFO investigators and researchers go about scrutinizing the phenomena.

Ever since the Arnold 1947 sighting, and the Maury Island episode, ufologists have applied a mix of inept evaluations, including interviews of witnesses, photographic and video enhancements, and hypnosis (a remnant of Mesmer’s 18th Century suggestive technique).

maury23.jpg

What was de rigueur in 1947 for investigating crimes or scientific anomalies has been replaced in the 21st Century by physical and psychological forensics and scientific disciplines that were not even imagined in 1947, such as DNA analyses and quantum perturbations.

But ufology’s investigatory camp has remained tethered to the old practices, and that’s why the UFO riddle continues to be unsolved.

Friedman, Randle, Hall, Rudiak, Maccabee, Hopkins, Jacobs, and the dead among them, Hynek, Mack, Sprinkle, et alia are or were locked into the methodologies of the past, from which no results, of any kind, have been forthcoming, even after 60 years of their scrutiny.

Even those who are culled for TV interviews, such as the recent one with Larry King on CNN, provide nothing but the same old rhubarbs that have worn thin by the retelling of them, over and over again, with nothing new ever added to the material.

These are the old-guard of ufology. But there are new investigators or theorists who aren’t beholden to the methods or ideologies of the past.

The new breed of UFO investigators can be found in the blogosphere surely, but many are extant in an “invisible” academic milieu, which was made archetypal by Jacques Vallee.

Some of the new breed who are not invisible (or academic necessarily) include Mac Tonnies, John Greenewald, Nick Pope, Bruce Duensing, Joseph Capp, Frank Warren, Dirk Vander Ploeq, Stuart Miller, and Vincente-Juan Ballester Olmos, among a few others.

Some are not youngsters but they are persons who haven’t concretized their thinking, as have those who insist on holding forth with egotistical barbs at UFO venues where silliness often overtakes serious discussion.

However, there is also a sub rosa set of ufologists who research the UFO phenomenon and discuss, with no holds barred, arcane and obtuse explanations for the mysterious sightings which have flummoxed the old-timers.

This subliminal group may not be any more successful at providing a UFO denouement, but perhaps their imaginative ruminations and technical expertise, along with their forensic schooling, will take UFOs out of the hands of the mummified ufologists and help place the enigma in the arena of science, real science, not the faux science of ufology that has allowed UFOs to escape their final detection.

While UFOs have changed their configuration over the years, ufology hasn’t – until now.

Capturing God and UFOs

ammon16.jpg

How difficult is it to capture a UFO….or God; that is, physically, tangibly, actually?

Major military establishments, such as those of the United States, Russia, China, and Britain have had occasion to capture aircraft from their counterparts: Russia (the U.S.S.R. when it happened) got its hands on Gary Powers’ U-2, China got its hands on American planes in Viet Nam, the U.S. got it hands on MIGs in Korea, et cetera.

Is it unimaginable that a “flying saucer” or UFO has not been captured – gotten hold of – by some military construct at some time or other?

Such a craft could have been gathered from a mishap, or shot down, inadvertently (mistaken for an enemy airplane) or purposefully.

(The “mishap” possibility is what keeps the Roswell story alive.)

But how does God figure in this?

The gods or God made appearances on the Earth, as related by the Hebrew Bible [Genesis 3, 17, 18; 3 Kings 19; Tobias 6; et cetera], the Mahabharata, the Upanishads, the Iliad, the Aztec and Mayan codices, and other historical or mythical treatises.

aztec16.jpg

Jacob, in the Hebrew Bible, wrestled with an angel, or as properly translated, Jacob wrestled with God [Genesis 32], and was injured (dislocated thigh joint).

UFOs or flying saucers are purported to have occupants, some seen and some interacting with human beings on the ground or aboard their craft.

16.jpg

But in either of the scenarios (gods or UFO occupants), no one has been able to subdue and capture either a UFO (alien) being or a god, not even an angel.

The gods and extraterrestrials remain elusive.

(Why no one has wrestled a flying saucer pilot to the ground or no abductee has punched one out while being kidnapped is grist for the passivity of human beings in dire straits, as was the case with Jews as they were being taken away during World WAR II, and in earlier pogroms.)

jews16.jpg

So, we’re left, for now, as to what can be done, or what has already occurred when it comes to UFOs or their tangible reality, flying saucers?

Have the strange flying machines been able to escape every attempt to nab one? Have they been able to fly, free of accident for the thousands of years that they’ve been experienced by humankind?

The “freedom from mishap” explanation doesn’t fly. What alien culture could create a machine that never malfunctions?

Unless those machines are the encapsulating vehicles for the gods (or God). We all know that the gods (or God) can’t be captured.

ancient16.jpg

So, either we take the view that UFOs are like gods or the machinery of the gods and can never be subdued, or we accept that UFOs are just extraordinary craft of alien beings or the mysterious militaries of this Earth and can be, with due diligence, captured, brought to heel, by extraordinary means – means that are not outside the technological abilities of human beings in A.D. 2007.

the16.jpg

Or, as noted above, have UFOs already been garnered by some Earthian military? Even circumstantial evidence is meager, but not totally hidden.

And if a UFO has been downed, why can’t another be?

It’s too bad that ufologists are such a pauperish lot; if they had some real monies, they could mount a “Capture a UFO” campaign, once they stop their internecine (and silly) conjecturing.
