Glad that's sorted, then.
The American government is not in contact with aliens and is not aware of any living on Earth, the White House revealed today in response to 12,000 American citizens who told the government "they could handle the truth". The official statement from Phil Larson, a research assistant from the White House's Office of Science and …
""The American government is [...] not aware of living on Earth, the White House revealed today."
It took a Freedom of Information request to reveal this?" ... Jon Green Posted Monday 7th November 2011 12:54 GMT
Greetings, Jon Green and El Reg ARGonauts,
Would you be surprised if Europe were equally clueless, even as they scurry and scamper like lemmings and headless chickens to contain the unfolding and quite alien conflicts which are exposing the corrupt workings and fabrications of dodgy markets and crooked criminal enterprises posing as free capitalist states and fully functioning economies, whenever quite obviously they are neither and never have been? Or would you fully expect them to be so ignorant, as it is par for the course as you consider the present?
And that is all that I would wish to say, for now, but would leave you with the following to ponder....http://www.ur2die4.com/?p=927
Aliens coming to earth my arse! Load of old tosh made up by people with too much imagination and no creative outlets.
Why bother ragging the government? If you want see aliens, simply head out to the back of beyond for a few weeks, get dressed up as a down-at-heel hick and wait for the saucers to land! Every story, the aliens come down, gang-probe some "hillbilly" and drop them off by the side of the road afterward.
Sure I appreciate the stories from the abductees, but it wasn't so long ago that the same sort of people, prior to space aliens being in the public conscience, would claim Succubii would come into their rooms at night. They'd "freeze" people in their beds, wide awake and do nasty things to them.
As George Carlin once said, "50% of Americans believe in angels. What the hell? Are you, fucking stupid or something? A good dose of some illegal drugs will get you some fucking angels my friends!"
"the odds of us making contact with any of them – especially any intelligent ones – are extremely small"
He is therefore not ruling out making contact with the unintelligent ones. These will be the ones that watch the videocasts of "The only way is Betelgeuse 5", "Rigel 4 has got talent", "Celebrity Big Polymorphic Natal Being" etc.
LOl, this story is hilarious and may offer reassurance and comfort to those with IQS of 70. The US government isn't even in control of the information,so why bother to contact them in the first place? Any sensitive information will be part of compartmentalized special access programs. The reason for this: to keep secrets and allow for plausible deniability amongst those in government, as well as maintaining domestic tranquility. Most folks think that secret projects end with black projects entitled TOP SECRET, but there are many compartmentalised grey projects beneath that,labelled CRYPTO, MAJIC, etc.
<blockquote>opinion polls stating that more than 50 per cent of the American people believe there is an extraterrestrial presence and more than 80 per cent believe the government is not telling the truth about this phenomenon.</blockquote>
Presumably that's 80% of 50%, rather than an additional 30% believing the government is covering up an alien presence in which they themselves do not believe?
Not sure if you are trolling, but here goes anyway...
The Roswell tapes show no such thing.
The hundreds of UFO photos show UFOs. ie Unidentified Flying Objects. Not aliens. Not spaceships.
The people claiming to have been abducted are wrong. The human mind is an amazing thing.
There you go. Sorted it all out for you.
errr, I hope that they know that if there is some sort of an alien coverup, an _elected_ government wouldn't know about it! And for that matter any position that is linked to this _elected_ government wouldn't know about it.
the people who would know are the people who are _not_ elected, these people will have static jobs that the 'people' won't be able to interfere with. In order to maintain total deniability (?), those who face the people and are questioned by the public, must never know the truth themselves.
Hell, we have entire continents run by people who, on the evidence of current economics, don't even understand that credit card bills need to be paid. This isn't just the elected ones who rotate chairs every so often - it's the ones in a job for life who are supposed to be the country's experts. And as the Queen said, "why did none of you see it coming?" And yet they're supposed to be managing a worldwide conspiracy that's kept this all hushed up for decades?
Plus this conspiracy is supposed to involve the media too. You know, the papers who are in cutthroat competition with each other, who'd sell their children to get one over on the others, and who are quite happy to ignore government "do not print this story" commands if they think it'll get them more sales. And all the TV stations, including places like Al Jazeera who'd be quite happy for the American establishment to collapse.
I think it's clear reading some of the comments here that if you're in the mindset that believes in this sort of thing, you're not in the mindset to accept any statement from the government about it.
But the government knows this. So why bother making a statement? It's obviously a conspiracy at the highest level - they're secretly keeping people in the dark about the fact aliens have never landed here by making statements they know won't be believed. Genius!
Not much news in this story, but significant to me that he acked that given the size of the universe it was likely there was life out there. I look forward to "US GOVT SAYS ALIENS LIKELY" being broadcast tonight on Fox News and the various religious talking heads being called on to explain how they are going to cope with the fact that being made in God's image might actually mean God is small and green.
I know, not gonna happen.
So which is more likely....
1) Despite our planet being smaller than a drop in the ocean in the vastness of the universe we are the only place heaving with life in the entire universe.
2) That despite the vastness of it all we are the only sentient beings and if there is any other life out there is microbial in nature or extinct already and we will be lucky to see traces of any existence under rocks.
3) That maybe other sentient beings exist but they are all inferior to wonderful us and could never travel in space.
4) That other sentient beings might exist and might have space travel but would never go and visit a planet broadcasting large amounts of non natural radiation.
5) The yank police state is lying for a change.
The White House response was an insult to those of us who signed the petition. They did not even bother to do an investigation before sending out the response that there were no known extraterrestrials. All they had to do was to talk to some CIA or Pentagon people. It is the US military/intelligence community that has kept this secret for so long. They think the disclosure will jeopardize US dominance of the world. See ufocoverup.org for more info
