Transparency and Disclosure

Columnist Cheryl Costa discusses disclosure and Hillary Clinton as the UFO candidate.

The story is about transparency and disclosure — it’s not about little green men!

In the past couple of weeks we have seen a positive surge of reporting in the mainstream media regarding Hillary Clinton’s promise to get to the bottom of the UFO topic. Suddenly, she’s picking up the moniker of being the “UFO candidate.”

Of course, what the media gives, it must take away. Some in the media have been trying hard to paint the UFO advocates as a rabble of smart, silly people, liberally labeling us as UFO true believers and UFO die-hards, and, of course conspiracy theorists. They’d have you believe it’s all about little green men.

Let me paint it for you another way. It’s about transparency on the part of the government. It’s about the “truth embargo” that’s been at the heart of it all. It’s about important people like Air Force General Curtis LeMay telling Senator Barry Goldwater in 1964, “Never ask me about that again.” It’s about General Nathan Twining, head of the U.S. Air Materiel Command (AMC), who wrote a classified letter to Air Force General George Schulgen regarding the “flying discs in the fall of 1947.” He said the objects were “real and not visionary or fictitious.”

During the Paradigm Research Group-sponsored Citizen Hearings On Disclosure (CHD) in Washington, D.C. in 2013, researcher Grant Cameron read from a top secret Canadian government memo that declared UFOs were “the most highly classified subject in the United States.”

If all the controversy and discourse about UFOs are simply mis-identifications, weather phenomena, hoaxes and crazy people, then why is it so highly classified?

Add to that, why has it been necessary for the government to humiliate, marginalize and censor those who have reported what they or others have seen? Why does this topic have such a stigma attached to it that we have to withhold or change the real names of those who report UFOs?

Why is it that the mainstream critics are doing their level best to tell you that Hillary Clinton is pandering to a tiny handful of UFO crack pots? Perhaps its because they don’t want you to know the real truth or they can’t handle the truth.

In 2012 the National Geographic organization commissioned the polling study regarding the American people’s interest in UFOs. The poll found that 36 percent were solid believers, 47 percent were on the fence and 17 percent flat out didn’t believe in the subject. The poll also found that 70 percent believe the government is not sharing what it knows. But what does this mean in term of actual numbers of people?

Well if 70 percent or 218.69 million Americans think that the government is not being forth coming and transparent about this UFO business, that is great political hook if you ask me. What politician wouldn’t like a potential base with popularity numbers like that?

But the truth embargo goes deeper than the topic of UFOs or UAPs (Unexplained Aerial Phenomena). If a secret is long kept, it is hard to tell the truth about it because the second question might be.

“If you’ve been lying to us about UFOs all these years; what else have you been lying to us about?”

I’ll close with a motto from the Paradigm Research Group: “It’s no longer about lights in the sky; it’s about lies on the ground.”

Let’s end the Truth Embargo!

Let’s look at some recent UFO sighting reports from New York skies:

May 7, 2016: At 9 p.m., a motorist in Canastota reported four glowing objects hovering over the road ahead of him before suddenly vanishing.

May 8, 2016: At 3:30 a.m., a resident of Syracuse was having a smoke on his deck when an orange orb flew over him.

May 9, 2016: At 7:30 a.m., a motorist and passengers near Clifton Park reported a cigar-shaped UFO that seemed to be ejecting orange orbs.

May 14, 2016: At 7 p.m., two residents of New York City were out having a smoke and observed a stationary “black dot” against a background of white overcast.

If you are interested in joining a monthly UFO discussion group in the Onondaga County area, drop Cheryl an email NYSkies@DragonLadyMedia.com. If you have a UFO sighting to report, you can use either one of the two national database services: nuforc.org or mufon.com. Both services respect confidentiality.

Cheryl Costa would love to hear the when, where and what of your New York sighting. Email it to NYSkies@DragonLadyMedia.com. The names of witnesses will be omitted to protect their privacy.
