Why is There a UFO Cover Up?

By April 30, 2008

Follow me on:

Many of us who research UFOs deal with the cover up of UFO information. I am not one who finds conspiracy in everything, but I do have the attitude that our government can and will do anything they want to when it suits their purpose. There have been many attempts by different groups to get through the government block on knowledge, and force the government to release information on UFO cases. So far, there has only been a small step taken.

Many were excited when the Freedom of Information Act was established, but what good does it do when a good bit of the data in a document is blacked out? Have you ever read the FOIA action. Here is a small part of it.

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is the implementation of freedom of information legislation in the United States. It was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson on July 4, 1966 (Amended 2002), and went into effect the following year. This act allows for the full or partial disclosure of previously unreleased information and documents controlled by the U.S. Government. The Act defines agency records subject to disclosure, outlines mandatory disclosure procedures and grants nine exemptions to the statute.

It is common knowledge among those interested in UFOs that there is a ton of information being kept locked up, and away from prying eyes. This is what has happened. The data on UFOs is not kept in the same place as financial, geographical, or historic documents, but they have a place all their own. This information is controlled by a small group of individuals who answer to no one, not even the President. Somehow, as time goes by, and members resign or pass away, another trustee takes their place, and the group continues from generation to generation. Believe me, the information sought by die hard Ufologists will never be made known. Of course, we can always hope that someone who can document a major UFO event comes forward, and somehow causes the government to reevaluate their position. But, don't hold your breath.

well here in the usa , the war of the worlds radio broadcast in the 50′s kind put scare into the government.
so i would think they still dont think we are ready for any kind of discloser

Personally I don’t think we have too far to find “Powerful global entrenched special interests” or “sophisticated global gangsters” as described in the blog at expolitics. Just look at our Commander-In-Chief and his thugs for the usual suspects.

Yes, let’s try them all at The Hague!

When you control a planet’s intelligent inhabitants.You must not tell them of their potential as a collective MASS. You can not tell them in identifying the real nucleus of families who are insulated with that drug called $$$$.This tool $$$ in used to man ipulate the temptation of the body and corrupt the ~soul~ Once truth is exposed^^ -You can no longer effectively be controlled and nor the whole of the populas.The real Evil is the actual Veil of *not* knowing/seeing[Deception] the truth of their capabilities, as a collective species.When citizens of the world are approached by Star People-our cosmic neigbors[Remember, we too are Extraterrestrials to them].The Rulers do not want interaction.Due to the fact that forbidden knowledge will be given away and the Rulers lose control of the Hosts/Hostages.Free energy,healing technique abilities,natural vibrational tapping of energies,and cosmic truth about our evolutionary cycles.Also to understand that all progess is towards extinction in guarding the Military Complex through war and murder.These groups of families have lost touch with their Mother-EARTH and soul **** Now these Elites they are getting ready to dug a hole and evolve “Sub-TERRESTRIAL ” What about you ? ~~~~~~~~~~~

I just have a rather naive, or simplistic view;that is, most people find it too fantastic to entertain the possibility of an extraterrestrial presence observing us. Second, I think those which have the greatest difficulty admiting to the persistent reality of various encounters are the world powers. Beginning with the foo fighters of World War II, it became obvious that no government had such technology. I think it would be extremely difficult for a government like the United States, for example, to own up to such vulnerability. Denial is the best way to deal with the fear of substantive, diplomatic, contact. The catch-phrase is that “they are not a threat to national security.”

There are those in the government, specifically the military, who feel sensitive information such as UFO’s are simply too provocative for the public to comprehend. These military shadow personnel are arrogant and dangerous. Having the knowledge that extra-terrestrials are visiting this planet is simply too important to hide.

I think they fear that revealing the true nature of this subject would lessen their grip on control of the masses. Also…it’s tough for some of these career military nuts to admit that their are beings out there who can simply toy with our most sophisticated technology.

The truth will never be revealed until a public UFO event forces their hand. Even then, I doubt all information will ever become public.

if it does you can bet they will know who leaked it and deal with them.

It would take a large mass of ufo’s to suddenly appear around the world where everyone and anyone can see them before the government would ever admit to anything dealing with ufo’s. You know like in the movie independence day (will smith) I sometimes wonder if something like that where to happen in real life if the government would try there hardest to convince us that they are ships thay they designed and control. I know there is other life out there I have had 3 up close sightings in my time and do have pics and video to back up my claims on 2 of them the 3rd I was not lucky enough to catch a pic or have video. I just wish the government and the military would realize we all are smarter than they give us credit for and we know more than they think and to just come out and admit the truth but of course that would make them look stupid etc…. and they wouldn’t dare so they just continue to deal with it by denying it, what better way to hide something by simple denial geeezzzzz I hope before I pass from this earth that some truth will become known.

by the way the broadcast of the war of the worlds was in the 1930′s not the 1950′s done by (orson welles) not sure I spelled the last name right, but anyway just in case anyone wanted to research it or anything I just wanted to give the right time frame for it and I’m not doing that just 2 pick on u (corwin) I just know the date was in the 30′s and I just wanted to let everyone know. I don’t mean to be rude in anyway.

Marchettti hd it right years ago; the coverup is intended to protect the status quo, and prevent adverse psychlogical reactions. I think the truth WIL be revealed someday but not for a long time, when acclimatization has progressd more.

May 6, 2008 at 4:05 pm
(12) Edward Biebel says:

I think Starman is on the right track. It is the status quo that those that know that ETs are here are protecting. The global system is either good for the plans of the aliens or the governements of Earth made a deal with them to run the show to the benefit of the ETs.
Most people who believe in ETs and UFOs don’t really give a thought to how there life would change. Just look at the progressive-socialist Global Warming crowd. Do you really want to be ruled by a failed totalitarian dictartorship system that doen’t understand science or economics? Most people in the West are much happier and better off than they would be under a dumbed down economically equalized system in which freedoms would not exist and one would have to ask permission to do anything to a petty bureaucrat; eat sleep, marry, travel, drive, etc. (The old old Soviet Union under Stalin)
We are better off with the illusion of freedom rather than the tyranny of that “brave new world.”
Be careful what you ask for; the answer to the UFO Enigma may not be what you expect. There is the law of Unitended Consequences!

Knowledge is power, and knowledge withheld from the masses is power over them. This has been axiomatic in pretty much any government you care to name.

IMHO information about UFO’s is being kept from the public for a number of reasons. First, as I stated, jealously guarded information, particularly as may apply to advanced propulsion and weapons systems, is a significant source of power over John Q. Public. If John don’t know about it, it possibly could be used against John without him suspecting anything. Also, if John doesn’t know about it, he can’t tell Vladimir or Achmed about it.

Second, we humans are accustomed to thinking of ourselves collectively as the acme of all civilizations, the very highest and most developed form of life that exists. Knowledge that a more advanced and powerful civilization is hanging out in the wings would send our entire socio-economic system into complete disarray. As has been pointed out, the War of the Worlds radio broadcast had America freaking out, and that was only a radio broadcast. Sudden revelation that a superior race exists and has emissaries here on Earth would cause exactly the same reaction, only with much more widespread and serious impact. Think “stock market discombooberation” and “food panic” for starters. I live in South Louisiana, and I went through Katrina. I’ve seen how people can get when things go awry, and it ain’t pretty.

Then, believe it or not, there may be the aspect of protecting the ET’s from the blazing torch and pitchfork crowd. I’m a gun owner and collector, and while I wouldn’t think of taking pot shots at ET’s, there are plenty of folks who would. It’s unfortunate, but that mentality does exist among humans (gun owners or not).

I am of the same school of thought as is Billy, and I’ve stated such before. The government, no matter which party is in charge, will trample your rights in a second if it suits their purposes. They will do whatever they want or need to do to accomplish their ends. And withholding UFO information from the public is one of the things they are doing.

(14) Patrick Sullivan says:

“Our Government” is a front organization for a group of people organized around the central banks that have made the decision to exterminate the mass of the human race in an all out nuclear holocaust.

The Extraterrestrials do not want the planet burned down and have intervened to allow enough time to pass that we will direct the end of the nuclear threat.

We can do it for we are the LIVING DEAD. The nuclear ‘Trigger’ has been pulled on us several times over the decades since the decision was made(in 1946) to kill us all.

As former director of the FBI J. Edgar Hoover said; “The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous, that he cannot believe it exists.”

That is why our nuclear war fighting elite cannot now come clean and tell us the truth about ET; it will reveal the truth that the plan from the beginning of the nuclear age was and continues to be to turn us all into nuclear waste.

In my opinion,, The personal who keep UFO information a secret, are not only traitors to the people of our country,, But to all humanity as well.

(16) Gen says:

Sam B. I’m with you on this. The information is being withheld for reasons rooted in Greed, Competition, Ego’s too large to admit that it really isn’t all about US, and the reality that there is that segment of the populace that will completely freak out! I understand these “reasons” but bottom line I don’t personally feel they are good enough to justify the lies, deception, pretense. These people observe no law. They will do anything and everything to maintain the charade and yes – nothing short of a “Hollywood” Style global appearance of ships hovering for all to see could shake these Control Fanatics out of the shadows.

It’s compartmentalized to the extreme. I’m not sure exactly who knows everything, but certainly top brass would have to have a hand in it somewhere. And if you think about it, if Roswell was a non-Earth UFO, with occupants or without, they cleaned it up and covered it up. They even managed to misplace/burn/lose the records during that period of time. They’ve lied to the public for 60 years or more. I can’t imagine they could come out today and say, ‘yeah we lied to all of you and we still don’t know how these things work.’ Meanwhile, objects invade restricted air spaces all over the world with impunity. If you tell a big lie once, it’s twice as hard to tell the truth. I think they are afraid of telling what they know, and believe if they did the publics trust in the government and military would disappear faster than a UFO into the sky.

difinealty way too much greed and someone likes to have the power to contorl what everyone thinks and does. If they lost that power they would not do so without a fight.

(19) Rob says:

If we are being visited by UFO’s it would be arrogant to believe that they only visit countries who are Americas allies. So they must vist countries who are enemies of America and in turn these countries must have recovered crashed objects. I find it difficult to beleive that atleast one of these nations would not jump at the chance to embaress the USA. Especialy if they believe it would cause a panic in America, hence ruining the economy

Hi All,

I will welcome the day with open arms when UFO enthusiasts get a grip and consider why mainstream scientists keep their distance from the subject of alien visitation to Earth.

Although advanced craft, alien vehicles are still ‘nuts & bolts’ machines. The aliens piloting and crewing such are nothing more than extra terrestrial biological entities. Clearly more advanced than us as their evolution and technological capability can testify to.

However, other than that, they are nothing special. There is nothing mystical about them. They are living organisms which in some way are born, live and die of old age. On route they can have accidents, suffer diseases and ailments and can die prematurely through accident or design.

Alien entities are ‘flesh & blood’ creatures. Clearly their physiology must be different to all Earth based life forms. As such, it is a cosmological, biological and physical impossibility for any alien to resemble anything here on Earth. So humanoids are out. So to, is the claim that aliens can simply land in craft and get out and walk about. This isn’t Star Trek and it never will be.

No alien being could ever just land and get out. Its first breath of air would be its last. Indeed, as would it be owers in reverse.

To suffer no ill health or death, an alien would need to evolve on a world IDENTICAL in almost every way to Earth and that is just not possible.

The element mix of our air would need to be the same and our world would be an immediate bio-risk to ET as indeed, an alien world would be to us if we just stepped foot on it.

While most astro-biologists and other astonomy linked scientists refuse to believe that alien entities in advanced craft visit Earth, I do believe it, but the science must support that. And UFO enthusiasts the world over simply ignore the science and elevate aliens to a God-like status just to account for all the ‘magical’ things they do.

Visitation to earth by alien vehicles staffed by biological entities is an extremely rare event. Even rarer is abduction and contact. And our planet must be the worst place in the Universe for alien breakdowns and crashes. A sort of extra terrestrial elephants grave yard.

Perhaps in the entire history of Earth, alien vehicles have failed on just a handful of occasions – not thousands which UFO lore states.

Far more likely in modern times is that recovered alien technology has simply been shot down. Yes, I know very boring. But nonetheless true.

There are no force fields to fend off our puny attempts to tackle them. They can defend themselves, but ask yourself the question, why do they run when military planes intercept them and lock on their weapons?

ET avoids confrontation at all costs because our simplistic weaponry is capable of bringing down such craft no matter how far away they’ve come.

If this was not the case, why are such advanced craft crashing at all? Why are their claims of recovered craft via military intervention?

Such technologically advanced species would have to be pretty stupid to come light years to end up breaking down or being shot up.

When UFO buffs stop making the most outrageous statements and claims and actually start considering the science, then, scientists will start to cooperate with Ufology and take it serious. At the moment virtually no one will put his or her name to the hypothesis of alien visitation. And the reason why is to be found on virtually every UFO discussion forum and comment board in the world.

WHY COVER IT UP! To me this question is best answered by looking at what the revealing of ufo’s would do to the whole fundamentals of Religion? The cause this would have on the total population’s belief of life after death and the promises for being good in this life, as promoted by every government in office as is evident in the Government schools curriculum’s around the world, Religion is the best form of control the government’s have and there is no way they want to contradict this as it would most definitely be cause for mass hysteria! For all those who say I would have to see it to believe it you are contradicting yourselves if you believe in religion! Why do you believe in Religion when there is no other proof than some well written books possibly by the very early government’s who wanted to create control that would make dictating easier for themselves! Imagine the out of control chaos there would be on earth if there was proof Religion is a lie and there is no consequences after this life! I could go off on tangents but I will just leave it there! P.S Everything you know in this life is stored in your physical brain cells therefore making it impossible to keep your memories when you die! So how could you be punished or rewarded for what you have no idea about!

I no first hand why ‘they’ are covering alien/ufo things up, and alot of people are sceptical, others would be scared to death, some wouldn’t care and some would be relieved. Why do you think there have been so many alien/sci-fi movies eg: Dragonball, G.I Joe, Twilight, Underworld, Jumper, The One. They are trying to let everyone know slowly ,which is a good idea but certain other wish tokeep it a secret for ever which a few of us, including me don’t like, for this to succeed we have to unite and fight as one, not as individual countries. I want to tell people but im not allowed, and i listen to those that created the secret until ‘other’ step forward and go over their heads.

If I said that I was in posession of an alien craft do you think I could even get it on the news.No of course not the military would first take it off me then search and remove any immages and other possible proof then set me up for a fall into the arms of the media just to ridicule and difuse the situation making me look like a nut case.Here in Australia whenever there are reported sightings there is a duopoly of media that like to report on these events especially the morning shows, then the hosts roll their eyes and then make lite of the event making the witnesses look like inbreds.If I was in posession of an alien craft I would tell no-one.Then I would take and hide pictires and pieces all over the country side.
