Yesterday was the New Hampshire primaries and while I wasn’t really interested in the political posturing and the pitch for the new green deal – I was however interested in another story out of New Hampshire that thrust the wannabe presidential hopefuls in what I like to call the Gray New Deal.

It is in my opinion, the deal where future candidates have to address the extraterrestrial issue – something that last year President Trump could not escape as reporters like Tucker Carlson and George Stephanopoulos were not shy in asking the President about the Navy encounter with UFOs and the phenomenon in general.

Another bold reporter that is not afraid of addressing the UFO issue is from New Hampshire his name is Daymond Steer.

He is a journalist for a local New Hampshire newspaper called the Conway Daily Sun and keeps asking politicians and presidential hopefuls about UFOs. I thought it was brilliant that he keeps asking the questions of presidential hopefuls because it forces them to take on the issue of disclosure.

By hosting informal, video recorded Q&A sessions, the Conway Daily Sun has had a lot of politicians vying for the presidency stop by its office. Hot on the heels of the New Hampshire primary it is the cool and hip thing to stop by and hang out with the reporters.

The interview sessions run about an hour, and Steer, who usually covers politics and crime, waits until the last moment to sneak in the big question on his mind outside of healthcare and education: UFOs.

Steer made waves in 2016 when he asked Hillary Clinton again about UFOs. Clinton told the Conway Daily Sun, “I’m going to get to the bottom of it. I think we may have been [visited already]. We don’t know for sure.”

He stated in the past that this was a one time shot and that he wanted to retire the question but when the David Fravor Nimitz Tic Tac story came along in December of 2017,  Steer thought it would be appropriate to ask the UFO question again of other candidates because it turns out, that Fravor is from New Hampshire.

For Steer, his questions are less about politics and more about the strange and seemingly more legitimate possibility that this UFO stuff actually matters.

Coincidentally, there have been some de-classified papers that indicate that in the 1970s. our government thought that the UFO question should be taken seriously and at one time saw the possibility of an alien invasion as a doomsday threat along with mutually assured destruction.

In most advanced countries there are many complex issues that governments have to tackle.  This is why there is a bureaucracy that is in charge of things like Defense, intelligence, general welfare, and other agencies that ensure that we have a modicum of continuity.

One does not stop and think just how complicated things are because we take for granted that we will have certain creature comforts at our disposal.

There are issues that many Americans are concerned about only because the media and politicians have usually framed them in such a way that the same old concerns are always thrown in as talking points for debate.

However new concerns have been raised due to the fact that we are no longer in the 20th century and as we are now pushing through the second decade of the 21st century – new concerns are emerging that seem to be fatalistic.

There have been concerns about what can be seen as apocalyptic concerns with regard to climate and ecosystem collapse as well of end of the world scenarios that include nuclear war, cyber and biological attacks.

Declassified documents have revealed that in the late 1970s into the early 1980s that show that the United States government and the military agency took the apocalypse very seriously.

While the government’s secret plans for surviving the end of the world dealt primarily with surviving a nuclear conflict there was another possibility of doomsday that was in the fine print.

This, of course, was an invasion from hostile extraterrestrials.

Both President Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter had UFO sightings.

During the presidential campaign of 1976, Jimmy Carter was forthcoming about his belief that he had seen a UFO. During the presidential campaign of 1976, Carter promised that, if elected president, he would encourage the government to release “every piece of information” about UFOs available to the public and to scientists.

 After winning the presidency, though, Carter backed away from this pledge, saying that the release of some information might have “defense implications” and pose a threat to national security.

There are many people who speculate that Carter was discouraged by then CIA director George H.W. Bush from pursuing any and all information about UFOs.

Carter’s successor President Ronald Regan also knew of the possible doomsday scenarios that could play out in both the nuclear arena and with possible alien threats from outside of our known world.

He did not see UFO speculations as trivial.

They gave him perspective amid the rising tensions of the Cold War.

November 19, 1985, was a momentous day. It was the first time in eight years that the leaders of the Soviet Union and the United States held a summit meeting. The two countries had been in a nuclear arms race for years, and the fate of the planet was at stake. In the midst of the Cold War, Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev met in Geneva, Switzerland to try and find some common ground.

During a 2009 interview by Charlie Rose with Gorbachev and Reagan’s Secretary of State George Schultz, it was revealed that something strange had happened during that event.

President Gorbachev and President Reagan took a walk,” Schultz explained. “They went down to some cabin on Lake Geneva where there was a fire in a fireplace and you sat down there — I wasn’t there, but I know when you came back, there were two friends, almost. Talking about what was going to happen. Then we went to the next…”

“At the fireside house,” Gorbachev cut in, through an interpreter. “President Reagan suddenly said to me, ‘What would you do if the United States were attacked by someone from outer space? Would you help us?’ I said, ‘No doubt about it.” He said, ‘We too.’ So that’s interesting.”

Keep in mind that it was Ronald Regan that proposed a Space Fence to be activated for his SDI –Strategic Defense Initiative which was a defense program involving X-ray lasers and subatomic particle beams that were derisively nicknamed “Star Wars.” He invoked the possibility of alien invasion multiple times during his presidency, often as a perspective-taking exercise to highlight the fragility of our existence if we were to face an alien threat that would lead to our doomsday.

George H.W. Bush did not give information or even indicated that he had an interest in creating a discussion about the UFO or even the extraterrestrial issue.

Bush was very careful about how he dealt with classified information, especially when the public was involved. However, there was an interesting exchange that occurred on March 7, 1988, between then-Vice President Bush and a UFO researcher named Charles Huffer. The incident in question occurred at a campaign stop in Rogers, Arkansas, where Huffer had been waiting for the Republican presidential hopeful outside a building where a press conference was to be held. Huffer, armed with a tape recorder, was able to obtain a few vague statements from Bush on the UFO subject, as transcribed by researcher Grant Cameron:

“Mr. Bush, Mr. President,” asked Mr. Huffer (in the excitement of the moment Mr. Huffer called him President). “Will you tell the people the truth about UFOs?”   “Yeah,” replied Bush. Then realizing what he has just said Bush added, “If we can find it, what it is. We are really interested.”   “You’ll have it, you’ll have it.” said Huffer. “It’s in there. (I meant it would be in his briefing when he became president) Declassify it and tell us, ok?”   “OK,” said Bush, ” alright, yes.”

Cameron notes that “Bush then entered the building where he met with the local Arkansas press,” while Huffer apparently waited outside. As Bush later emerged from the building, Huffer approached him again, reminding the Vice President that he was, “going to hold [him] to that promise.”

“Alright,” replied Bush.   “OK,” said Huffer, “you’re going to get it.” (I meant the UFO information)   “Why don’t you send me some information about it? ” asked Bush.   “Naw,” said Huffer, “you’re a CIA man. You know all that stuff.”   “I know some,” replied Bush. “I know a fair amount.”

When Bill Clinton was President there was a conspiracy theory that in his second term he walked into the Oval Office, lit up a cigar and said: “Tell me what you know about Roswell and Area 51?”

For some time I always believed it was an urban legend until Clinton appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2014.

“First I had people go look at the records on Area 51 to make sure there was no alien down there,” Clinton said during the appearance.

“People thought that because everyone who works there has to stop about an hour away and put on special clothing and then drive in and out, and that’s because a lot of our stealth technology is made there.

He concluded that he knew nothing about aliens at Area 51.

What is most interesting is that when Clinton served his second term, the 50th anniversary of the Roswell event took place and just before that all happened there seemed to be a Hollywood upsurge in movies dealing with extraterrestrials.

Rather than having aliens being submissive and shy like in Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extraterrestrial, the aliens were aggressive and one of the breakthrough films that illustrated this was the film, Independence Day.

This film at the time was considered one of the most amazing film dealing with the “doomsday scenario” brought to us by malevolent aliens.

Producers of the film were looking for support from Washington for the film.  They did not succeed.

The Pentagon did not provide production support to the movie “Independence Day” because it portrayed the military as ineffective against the alien threat. There also was dialogue mentioning Area 51 and Will Smith’s Air Force character dated a stripper. But in 2016, the United States Army developed a months-long, multi-platform promotional campaign for the movie’s sequel.

Documents released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) show the campaign for “Independence Day: Resurgence” was pursued to blend fiction and reality, boost recruitment, and alter the public’s perception of the Army.

Through a technologically and psychologically sophisticated campaign, the U.S. Army’s project was part of the 2016 “Patriotic Season” campaign. Personnel attempted “to associate America’s Independence with the US Army and own it.”

The Army hoped to leverage 20th Century Fox’s $150 million advertising budget for the movie to spread their messaging. A “case study” boasts of cast members and actual soldiers, who made an appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Using appropriately Hollywood rhetoric, the Army’s ad agency “laid out a strategic vision which [tied] the Army in relevant ways to the movie, demonstrating the Army’s ability to prevail against any obstacle and be the only force with the scale, scope, capabilities and critical thinking to protect our nation now and in an uncertain future.”

In particular, personnel had a “perceptual goal” to “overcome strongly held misperceptions of the Army as low-tech, ordinary,” and a “last resort option” for those looking to join the military.

The ad agency wanted to replace this impression with the idea that the Army is a “versatile, highly-trained, adaptable team.” The campaign asserted Independence Day was “brought to you by and defended by the U.S. Army.” They adopted a full-spectrum approach, using everything from TV spots, to paid digital ads, to hiring Wild Posting, a marketing agency, to set up an outdoor media campaign for buses, benches, and billboards.

Fox used the innovative technique of pretending that the events of the first film actually happened and that there was a real “War of ‘96” following the alien invasion.  This included mock-ups of news broadcasts, discussion panels, and even a fake Las Vegas Tourism Board video showing tourists gambling in the ruins of the city.

The stars of the film appeared in imitation PSAs to inform the public about how they could help the war effort and urged them to sign up for ESD—the Earth Space Defense, a global military force that features heavily in “Independence Day: Resurgence.”

The question is whether or not the “Earth Space Defense” was a bit of predictive programming that has now led us to the newly formed “Space Force.”

While the “Earth Space Defense” was used in Independence Day Resurgence as defenders against alien threats – we are told the President Trump’s Space Force is not at all about defending the planet against aliens.

Yet there have been Doomsday protocols that clearly indicate that from Jimmy Carter to President Trump there has been a concern about such threats.

It appears that as far back as 2015, the military was already gearing up for a Space Command or a Space Force and used the Independence Day franchise to further their agenda.

All this was happening as the Pentagon had a newfound interest in UFO investigations according to the New York Times article that exposed the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP).

In the campaign’s first phase leading up to the movie’s release in June 2016, the Army worked to “expose prospects to the U.S. Army as a versatile, advanced, highly-capable force in a way that’s hyper-relevant to IDR fans’ passion for the movie.” The appeal of this global force was fueled by online recruitment, social sharing, and producing videos “highlighting  the Army as the leading force, which utilized alien technology to advance human technology and fight back.”

At times, the briefings make it seem like the Army thought that the events of the two “Independence Day” films had actually happened. Army-funded TV spots in the spring of 2016 featured an Earth Space Defense -deployed father talking to his son via video chat.

Emphasizing this intentional blending of fiction and reality, one of the aims of the second phase—which began shortly before the movie came out—was to “highlight that fictional movies and heroics are based on real-life Army soldiers and heroes who make a difference for the nation and the world every day.”

This phase involved positioning the Army as the institution “most responsible for American independence and inspire prospects to be a part of it by leveraging the central themes of the movie.”

According to one briefing, the Army recommended that their campaign, “utilize the core themes of the film, surrounding independence, to continue to align Army with patriotism, independence and the equity of the holiday to further build ownability.”

This is true predictive programming that was documented and intentionally created by the Military to encourage new recruits to join Earth Space Defense –which now has been renamed The Space Force.

Phase two additionally included promotional screenings on military bases and “soldier reaction” videos put out via traditional social media and live updates posted to “emerging platforms,” like Periscope and Snapchat. These posts were liked, shared, tagged, and retweeted by Army employees, alongside content amplified “via paid social media ads.” They even arranged for “soldier actor interaction linking reality and fiction.”

In addition to the screenings and activities around them, the Army’s campaign cost over $2 million, and their measurements for the project’s effectiveness relied heavily on what they termed “perceptual drivers” and “perceptional research points,” i.e. the messaging and associations they injected into people’s minds.

Even though the Independence day movie bombed at the box office the question remains as to whether or not spending $2 million of taxpayer money on a fake viral internet phenomenon worked in getting people excited about joining the military to fight aliens ?

What we learn from all this is that in the fine print of doomsday documents that were in the hands of the military, there were protocols being examined for the possibility of alien invasion and the acclimation of the public to an Earth Defense Force capable of a fight if the event takes place.

Even though the Democratic candidates and President have been asked about UFOs and many of them laugh and then finally admit that they would reveal the truth – President Trump was being very vague with reporters but secretly it is evident that he takes the issue seriously as our military has been in the crosshairs of UFO stalking events, we have put more power into the Space fence –nd have created a new branch of the military called the space force.

 What is nebulous is whether or not an alien invasion is still on the books as something that can happen if we let our guard down.

 Something has repeatedly shown that  it can easily find carrier strike groups, which are designed and operated to be hidden in the far oceans, and to find nuclear ballistic missile submarines running near totally silent deep under the water.

Something can penetrate the most securely guarded areas of the most important areas in the U.S. military and render our most critical deterrent platforms improbable. For Pentagon planners, this is Armageddon-level stuff.

But the truth is clear: If it wanted to, something strange could defeat America without raising a sweat.

The extension is that even if the U.S. government believes, as it does, that these UFOs aren’t Chinese or Russian, publicizing the issue itself risks another danger.

Namely, that if the U.S. shares what it knows about UFOs, China or Russia might learn enough to replicate the associated technologies behind UFOs for themselves. And seeing as those technologies are almost certainly built around space-time manipulation if Beijing or Moscow figures it out before the U.S. does, we have a rather large problem.

This isn’t to say that the U.S. government is sitting idle.

Whatever one thinks about the claims of those such as Bob Lazar, who says he worked on crashed UFOs at Area 51 or the number of civilian and military government agencies retaining active programs to ascertain the source, capabilities, and intent of UFOs, we still have a military that has put millions of dollars into investigating and even launching propaganda about UFOs.

 What we are learning now is that none of this “disclosure” has been random – it appears to be a well thought out plane to acclimate the American people into accepting the celestial pay off of 2020 .
