Here’s my last take on the Will Smith and Chris Rock thing:

We need to stop ignoring the fact that various government agencies have admitted over the past year that UFOs are real.

Not even kidding. I know, I know, I usually joke around about conspiracies and such in this column, but this is real — the government has admitted that UFOs exist.

And instead of concentrating on ridiculous crap like Will Smith, the Kardashians, Kid Rock, Bhad Bhabie, and various other moronic garbage, it’s kind of stunning that more people aren’t interested in, and talking about, this shocking revelation.

Why Isn't The Latest UFO News Getting More Press Than Will Smith?

We’ve got the war in the Ukraine. This is bigger.

We’ve got inflation and a recession looming. This is bigger.

We’ve got massive lockdowns in China and a new covid variant spreading about Europe and Asia.

But, yes, this is bigger.

This phenomenon really started in earnest last year, when the Pentagon admitted they had evidence of a number of UFO sightings and have, for over a decade, had a top secret organization looking into the unidentified vehicles. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio — you know, the legitimate political veteran who just ran for president a few years ago, not some freak in a tin foil hat like Lauren Boebert — requested a detailed analysis of the task force’s findings. A year ago, the New York Times ran an article on the phenomenon and the program, quoting an astrophysicist and former consultant for the UFO program, Eric W. Davis, as saying that he gave a classified briefing to the Defense Department agency regarding “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.”

Again, this is the Pentagon.

New York Times.

Marco Rubio.

These aren’t fringe elements or websites that look like they were made on AOL in 1997 featuring obviously photoshopped pics of Bigfoot waving as his flying saucer leaves the Taco Bell drive-thru.

Various images of UFOs have been released by the government and authenticated as real.

These are legit media sources, legit organizations, saying that UFOs exist, and at best they really have no freaking clue what they are.

However, they have admitted to discovering and testing wreckage from them.




And, why isn’t it bigger news that, according to documents recently declassified, dozens of people who encountered UFOs ended up having physical injuries and illnesses due to the encounters?

This is, by far, the biggest story in the world right now. Nobody knows what these things are. The government, the Pentagon, is admitting that they don’t know what the UFOs are.

Are they some top-secret technology from Russia or China? Doubtful, certainly at this point, since Russia and China, as previously mentioned, definitely have other things on their mind.

Are they some top-secret technology from the private sector, or from some other country that we’re not aware of?

Nobody knows, but that’s the only other terrestrial option.

The other option, of course, is that these craft are of extraterrestrial or interdimensional origin.

And that’s something, that’s a fear, that nobody wants to acknowledge.

The History Channel released this video from the Pentagon showing a military jet converging on a UFO.

Now, it’s absolutely astonishing to me that this keeps being ignored or downplayed by the mainstream media. There’s reporting on these incidents, from reputable sources, who are confirming the existence of UFOs and other unexplained phenomenon, and it might make a tiny blip, and then it disappears.


I don’t get it. Are people just ignoring it because they don’t want to deal with what it means if they don’t ignore it?

The latest news is perhaps the most unsettling.

According to the website Mysterious Universe, “the British newspaper The Sun claims it received 1,574 pages of documents from the US Pentagon as a result of a Freedom of Information (FOI) request first filed in on December 18, 2017, asking for a copy of all “files, reports or video files” related to the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) – the secretive US Department of Defense UFO investigation program which began in 2007, was funded until 2012, ran unfunded for some time after that, and was made public in 2020. That’s not the blockbuster part either … The Sun reviewed the documents and found reports on the biological effects of UFO sightings on humans – including cases of “apparent abduction”, “unaccounted for pregnancy”, sexual encounters, experience of telepathy and perceived teleportation.

“According to the latest release of over 1,500 pages of declassified documents from the Pentagon’s from Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP), Americans suffered from radiation burns including brain and nervous system damage and bizarrely even “unaccounted for pregnancy” after encounters with UFOs. It described alleged injuries to “human observers by anomalous advanced aerospace systems” in a collection from March 2010 which it said was a “threat to United States interests.”

The report in particular pointed at 42 cases in which humans suffered injuries after alleged encounters with “anomalous vehicles” meaning UFOs as people were exposed to condictions related to electromagnetic radiation with some allegedly inflicted by “energy related propulsion systems.”


The report stated cases of nerve damage, heart palpitations and headaches after coming into contact with anomalous vehicles.

And, again, this isn’t the Weekly World News or Coast to Coast AM or UFO Magazine, it’s the mainstream media that this is somehow making its way into, albeit in a far less hyped fashion than Will Smith slapping Chris Rock.

For example, here’s NBC National News with a lengthy story about how the Pentagon and other government agencies have admitted that UFOs exist.

Here’s my previous column on the subject with a variety of other links to reputable media sources reporting on the government admitting the existence of UFOs.

Here’s a video compiled by CNN, which got surprisingly little traction on that 24-hour-a-day news network. That joins various other videos which have been leaked and talked about in the media.

I’m not quite sure what it’s going to take for the media to actually give this the attention it deserves. I’m guessing it’ll take a UFO landing on the White House lawn, and several aliens getting out, only to make jokes about Jada’s hair and get slapped by Will Smith.

That would make sense, after all, since he is one of the Men in Black.

But barring that happening, when is this finally going to get substantial media attention?

Stay tuned.

From what I understand, Chris Rock is busy writing jokes for the aliens, just in case.
