So why the sudden coordinated push for this? When we see the main stream media all jump on the same story, we know it is being coordinated behind the scenes. I notice this is all breaking while the President is out of the country - visiting Japan and now the UK. But a couple of interesting points. Ted Cruz recently said the US now needs a "Space Force" to deter "Space Pirates". Yes, really, he said that, see CNET story here. Elon Musk (SpaceX) replied to a twitter thread on this with a pirate flag. See here. And oddly, when Trump was in Japan he said that Japan and the US had agreed to "dramatically expand our nations’ cooperation in human space exploration" and "We’ll be going to Mars very soon. It’s very exciting." See here.
WTF. Related story from the New York Post quotes a former UK Ministry of Defense official as saying this:
When I worked on this issue for the UK’s Ministry of Defence, we used “UAP” in our internal policy discussions, thus avoiding the pop-culture baggage that came with the term “UFO” and reframing the discussion as a defense and national security issue. That’s how those of us who have looked at the phenomenon from within government view it.
UFOs have finally come out of the fringe and into the mainstream. Multiple stories have appeared in major media outlets. There is congressional interest. Pilots, radar operators and intelligence officers involved in these encounters and investigations are going on the record, calling for action. It’s difficult to avoid the conclusion that there’s a bigger picture here. The pace of events is picking up, and we seem to be building up to something. Something is happening. Something new. Something big.
So yeah, the powers that be (TPTB) are planning something. What, I have no idea. And no, I don't see this as a Paranormal board topic - this is current affairs topic being reported on in a very high profile way across all the US news media.
