“Congress Admits UFOs Not ‘Man-Made,’ Says ‘Threats’ Increasing ‘Exponentially’”

“Buried deep in a report that’s an addendum to the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023, a budget that governs America’s clandestine services, Congress made two startling claims. The first is that “cross-domain transmedium threats to the United States national security are expanding exponentially.” The second is that it wants to distinguish between UFOs that are human in origin and those that are not: “Temporary nonattributed objects, or those that are positively identified as man-made after analysis, will be passed to appropriate offices and should not be considered under the definition as unidentified aerospace-undersea phenomena,” the document states.

The admission is stunning chiefly because, as more information about the U.S. government’s study of UFOs has become public, many politicians have stopped just short of claiming the unidentified objects were extraterrestrial or extradimensional in origin. The standard line is typically that, if UFOs exist, then they’re likely advanced—although human-made—vehicles. Obama refused to confirm the existence of aliens but did say that people have seen a lot of strange stuff in the sky lately when asked directly on The Late Show with James Corden, for example. But now Congress seems to want to specifically distinguish between objects that are “man-made” and those that are not.

A “cross-domain transmedium” threat is one that, by the Pentagon’s definition, can move from water to air to space in ways we don’t understand. In July, the Pentagon announced it was opening the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) to investigate these threats. The bill would reclassify Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (the government’s term for UFOs) as Unidentified Aerospace-Undersea Phenomena and rename the Pentagon’s office in line with the new designation. Last year, a leaked video that was confirmed by the Pentagon as being authentic appeared to show a UFO seamlessly flying beneath the waves. “

Comment: My belief about this is that there are alien races that we have contact with and others that are unknown to us, PL

    “It seems we are now reliving after 1,500 years the great conflicts with arianism – with the big difference that we are now concerned with defining the relations, not between Christ and the Trinity, – but between Christ and a universe that has suddenly become fantastically large, formidably organic and more than probably poly-human (in thinking planets – millions perhaps). And if I may express myself brutally (but expressively) I see no valid or constructive way out of the situation except by making through the theologians of a new Nicea a sub-distinction in the human nature of Christ between a terrestrial nature and a cosmic nature.”
    (Letter to Andre Ravier SJ, 14 January 1955, Lettres intimes, 452)

    This passage by Father Pierre Teilhard de Chardin SJ illustrates, at least to me, that he accepted the probable existence of alien races or poly-human as he put it. Winston Zeddemore told the mayor in the movie Ghostbusters much the same thing when he said, “These things are real. Since I’ve joined these men, I’ve seen shit that’ll turn you white.”

    • Glenn Fisher says:

      Although God did create the heavens and the earth I’m firmly on the other side of this.
      If these aliens should make contact with us I’ll admit I’m wrong but until then I’m of the Biblical worldview that we’re alone in the universe.

  2. Bill Roche says:

    By what logic/arrogance can we believe that in the universe (say how big is the universe anyway. Man, its forever and everywhere) we are alone? Acknowledging we are not alone requires us to question/doubt all the creation stories, moral/ethical beliefs, and “glue” which holds humans together. This is even bigger then the divide b/t liberal and conservative; vast man vast. Some, as of yet unborn, baby growing up in America will join the USSF and will go where no man has gone before .. Too bad I won’t be there.

  3. d74 says:

    Let’s think about it:
    They are way ahead of us. If they wanted to be proactive, they could eradicate us in a heartbeat, and for a long time.
    But they don’t.
    On the contrary, they are here and observe us. They try to understand us. Our frenzy baffles them.
    Their conclusion is obvious:
    We are too stupid to speak up. Nothing to gain and a waste of time.

    They have eternity ahead of them. But, with the help of technology, we will give them the gift of our self-destruction well before the end of eternity. Then they will come to take over and repair the damage we have done to our planet. And they will live happily.

      In Imamu Baraka’s “Preface to a 10,000 Page Suicide Note” the best section as I recall described the landing of flying saucers during the Newark New Jersey race riots of the Sixties. As he related it they were whizzing around one fine evening in the nearby ether when their listening devices tuned into an earthly DJ who had devoted an hour of his show to playing Art Blakey records. So they did a hyper dimensional 180 and landed so as to check it out. The NJ state troopers found 12 foot tall skinny alien types going through looted record stores. Probably they reported it up the chain of command and a stoned official in the pentagon or Capital hill didn’t realize it was fiction and here we are.

  4. mcohen says:

    How come only Americans have contact or sightings of ufo’s.What about the rest of the planet.

    • TTG says:


      Wrong. UFO sightings are a worldwide phenomenon. They also occurred long before the US existed.



      • Fourth and Long says:

        Yes, schizophrenical, diabetic, impacted wisdom tooth and psychotropic plant induced hallucinations also predated the existence of the United States. But don’t let that trouble you. I think dreams even predated the Declaration of Independence just possibly. Tough call.

        • longarch says:

          hallucinations also predated the existence of the United States.

          Some UFOs show up on radar. I don’t know of any personal hallucination that shows up on radar. However, many UFOs that are not recorded on radar systems nonetheless provide a large, compelling body of evidence. Consider, for example, the “foo fighters” seen by World War II pilots and air crews. These men were extremely sober and responsible.


          • Fourth and Long says:

            My dad probably flew as many or more miles as any US Army Air Corps man between Dec 7, 1941 and Jan 1, 1946. (Navigator on 4 engine long distance bombers. But Air Transport Command, hence the mileage). He called those sightings “Gremlins” and said it was a common occurrence of flyboys. TTG explains it very well in his story of his ranger buddy on a cold North Georgia mountain elsewhere on this blog and the rangers under training who put coins in cypress trees looking for candy bars and soda pop. Exhaustion and stress but of superhuman magnitude. It warped my dad so severely that when my mother would scream at him about Hiroshima and how could Truman do that his only response was: “People just wanted to go home.”

            It’s just another of a huge supply of anecdotes about the Big One (2nd World War) but it may have value and be relevant to the current conflict in Ukraine that is a proxy war between two nuclear superpowers (USA and Russia) because very smart people are now calling it a war of attrition.

            “Just wanted to go home.”

            And with more nukes than Truman could have ever thought possible.

  5. borko says:

    There is an excellent book series that deals with encountering alien civilization(s) from a rather pessimistic view.

    It is called The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin and is a 3 book series. Netflix is in the process of adapting it for TV but it will not be as good as the books.

  6. cobo says:

    These days, with so much great CT swirling around, who needs science fiction. One intriguing theory is that the entire UFO thing is being used to assist the elites with global control. Certainly there are other holes in the warren, but in keeping with the intel theme may I suggest for your viewing pleasure, Dark Journalist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWI3z6unM3Q

    And if you remember “The Invaders”

  7. Barbara Ann says:

    I subscribe to the Great Filter solution to the Fermi paradox and am skeptical of UFO’s being signs of alien civilizations. Either that or the Strugatsky brothers were right in their highly original and amusing premise; that aliens are of such a level of advancement that they have no interest in us whatsoever and maybe just treat out planet as analogous to a picnic location.



  8. William says:

    I have read fairly credible reports that up to 1 percent of the U.S. population are in fact aliens. If this is true it would mean that as many as 329,ooo aliens are walking around in the United States. Well, how could this possibly be true. It is not possible that such numbers of enemy agents could be hidden through cloaking because there are always technical problems – they would in fact have to look like us, and are us, but without a soul and a deep seated hostility towards us, because we can advance and they cannot.

    There will be ways to detect such enemies of the state, but I do wish more forward progress had been made. Difficult times ahead and very very soon.

    • Barbara Ann says:


      From what I recall of They Live 1 percent is a conservative estimate. I hope someone is working on mass producing those sunglasses.

    • Mark Logan says:


      “Uber drivers, mostly. But not as many as you’d think.”

      Looking at the timeline of life on earth and figuring it’s probably similar to how live evolves most everywhere, I’d imagine one could explore a million planets that harbor life before one might encounter a proto-industrial civilization just a few dozen generations removed from discovering how to make steel, and even coexists with stone-tool making people of the same species. They all but certainly find us fascinating and if there is a community word would spread. Every egg (or whatever) head in range would seek a study tour.

    • Peter Hug says:

      Men in Black is a documentary…

    • Fourth and Long says:

      When brown bears start attending Church and davaning in Synagogue we’ll know for sure. It will be explained away in the press that once they realized that little pieces of paper are all that’s needed to get food from a supermarket they saw the light. The 325,000 in your note are the ones who donned people costumes to use paper money years ago toward the same end. How do they get the paper money? Too easy a question. And the answer solves many mysteries. How could Washington DC and the Neocons be such bloodthirsty warmongering psychopathic monsters and get away with it for so long? How can beings who are apparently human have no concern at all for human life up to and including women and little children? You now have the answer.

  9. Notfakebot says:

    I’m inclined to think these UFOs are more often then not naturally occurring phenomena, some of which may yet to be explained.

    If truly alien and intelligent, then some kind of drone or probe I would imagine.

    I have a hard time wrapping my head around the thought that an intelligent living organism could travel incredible distances to physically visit far away planets like ours.

    • Barbara Ann says:


      Most folk lack a conception of just how vast and empty the universe is. Inter-dimensional travel is a must for space-faring living organisms. An illustration: traveling in our 3 dimensions at the cosmic speed limit (light speed) aliens who left our nearest galaxy around the time man first learnt to control fire would still not have arrived here yet. Communication would need to work inter-dimensionally too order to support an interstellar civilization. Making a “how are you today?” call to Proxima Centauri entails an 8 year delay for the response. Aliens able to master such technology would probably regard our civilization as akin to how we regard an ant colony.

      • Bill Roche says:

        No one, well not me, can understand the limitless nature of the universe. No beginning, no ending, always there, always will be; how far is that? How wide? Did we reach bottom yet? The nature of life as we understand it has a beginning and an end. Everything does right …. nope, not the universe. If its true that the universe holds more stars than all the grains of sand on all the beaches on earth, how would one know? If our simian brain w/its imperfect set of senses, is unable to receive and understand the information pouring onto earth daily, how are we to answer the fundamental question for humanity – why?
        eat, live, and be merry for … you know the rest.

  10. I think the biggest question is the following:

    Should the U.S. and Russia cooperate in gathering information about these mysterious observations?
    I.e., establish a joint task force which would collect what is known about these things.

    The intelligence agencies in the U.S. have vast experience in collecting and analyzing information.
    So too do those in Russia.
    Would it not be better for the human race for them to work together on this issue?

    I can imagine two arguments against that:
    1. It might reveal too much about our capabilities.
    2. The Russians might feed us false information, for one reason or another.

    Also hindering this would be the current poisonous relations between the U.S. and Russia.
    Thanks a lot, all you Ukraine lovers and Russia haters.

    • TTG says:

      Keith Harbaugh,

      You can substitute China for Russia and it would read just as well. Chinese intelligence and space capabilities may even have more to say on this question than the Russians, although I doubt neither China nor the US trusts each other enough to cooperate.

      • In the case of China,
        I think the issue of Taiwan is an intractable one.
        I see no good solution to it,
        which leaves both sides satisfied, or at least not too unhappy.
        Of course, from my POV I wish the PRC would just accept Taiwan as an independent nation,
        but if they are not willing to do that, what can we do?
        There is no evident mutually acceptable solution.

        OTOH, for Ukraine I think John Mearsheimer has given good advice: find a compromise that both sides can live with.
        Such should, IMO, be possible.
        Ukraine would have to accept half a loaf.

        • Steven says:

          Keith, the problem with PRC accepting Taiwan as an independent nation is that it would allow the USA to move in and install nuclear weapons 100 miles away from China.

        • Bill Roche says:

          Keith Harbaugh why not Russia gets non of Ukraine’s bread?

    There Are Many Storys of Creation..God.Creator of the Heavens and Earth..and All Living Creatures..Including Man Kind.That Account Seems Logical to Me.
    …Then Fallen Angels. With Lucifer ..Who Went Around Earth to The Different Races God Spead Around Aftether the Tower of Babel..Those Angels…with Higher Powers Than Man..Used thier Technology
    To Rule Over Those Cultures and became Thier gods..using What we call UFOS to Travel.(The Chariots of the gods).and High Tech Tools to Move Stones..Laser Cut Them into shapes ..
    Creat under Water Bases…i/e Sumerian History..(gods from out of the Ocean.) teaching them Science and Culture and Languages and Mathmatics..
    The Bible indicates There are good and Bad Angels..In Creation..Good Ones have many Records of Contact with mankind..Both in Human Form..In Person..Or in UFOs..As Ezekial Desecribed Flying Toward Hime in the Desert.. in Great Detail..With a Clear dome on Top..lights inside..an Human Looking Beings at the Controls..They Contacted him and Interacted.
    Using Steath and Cloaking to Reveal Hidden events taking Place..

    So..There Are Good Ones..Being Used By God..to Help Mankind..While Evil..Powers Now Control Earth.. And there are Bad Ones..Shape Shifters..Reptilians..NOT created in Gods Image..Being Used by Lucifer..That have thier own Space Craft (UFOS) To Influence and Control Events on Earth..Have Probable Made Contact with World Governments and Provided Technology. Which Has and is Being Reversed Engineered
    There Are Two Obvious Events in Human Experience…Good Things and Evil Things..Good People and Bad People..Love…and Inhumane Hatred and Violence..

    Its Becoming More Exposed all The Time..Hidden things God told Daniel that
    would Be Revealed in the End Times..( Secret Writings) Like the Dead sea Scrolls..

    This Conflict is reaching its Conclusion..(The Last Days) The One World Government of Satan..The Mark of The Beastin order to Buy or Sell….The Famines and Weather Changes..The More Frequent UFO Activity.. The Radical Tranformation in Human Behavior..and Mental Health ..Are Coming From Hidden Works,,in Dark Places..
    I Believe that to Be True..

      Colonel Lang..
      We experienced the Sound of Some Flying object Come over The Olumpic Mountains to The West ..We were on East side of the Oylmpics..below the Peaks..At That time we could Hear The Sound of it..Tree Top High But No Lights…It Was Heading Down slope toward
      Hood Canal toward The New BangorSub Base where Nuclear Wepons were just being brought in By The White Train..I know because I was Helping Pan Am Security Deal with the Ground Zero Protestors at the Gates and Rail Entrance..
      This Craft Made the Propulsion sound of a Turbine In a Hydro Electric Dam..
      like a Generator..The Ground under Our Feet Vibrated..Becuse It Was So
      Close above Us..
      I Reported this matter in Detail to MUFO..That Report was apparently taken off their Web site…I Want you to Know This ..With Your Interest..
