(TMU) — The U.S. Navy has officially acknowledged that video footage purportedly showing UFOs flying through the skies are, indeed, actual “unknown” objects that flew into U.S. airspace.

While officials admit that they are largely baffled by the unknown flying objects, they also admit that encounters with them have been quite frequent—and they also don’t want us to call them “UFOs.”

Instead, the preferred terminology is “unidentified aerial phenomena” or UAPs.

The three clips of footage taken by Navy pilots were originally released in 2017 and 2018 by To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences (TTS), a UFO research organization founded by former Blink 182 frontman Tom De Longe. The three videos have been dubbed “FLIR1,” “Gimbal” and “GoFast.”

At the time of their release, TTS called the videos “the first official evidence released by the US government that can be rightfully designated as credible, authentic confirmation that unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) are real.”

And now, officials from the Pentagon are admitting that this is the case.

In initial comments to the Black Vault, Navy spokesperson Joseph Gradisher confirmed:

“The Navy designates the objects contained in these videos as unidentified aerial phenomena.”

In one of the videos captured on November 14, 2004, Navy pilots lock onto a target just before it rapidly accelerates out of the left side of the frame, far too fast for the jets’ sensors to remain locked-on.

In the two other videos, both from 2015, U.S. fighter pilots can be heard discussing what they are seeing. In the “Gimbal” clip, the pilots say:

“It’s a fucking drone, bro!”

“There’s a whole fleet of ‘em…”

“My gosh! They’re all going against the wind. The wind’s 120 knots out of the west.”

“Look at that thing, dude!”

The Navy spokesman told Time magazine:

“The reason why I’m talking about it is to drive home the seriousness of this issue.

The more I talk, the more our aviators and all services are more willing to come forward.”

Gradisher declined to speculate on whether the unidentified objects in the videos were extraterrestrial vessels—but did note that they are usually proven to be far more boring objects such as drones. He said:

“The frequency of incursions have increased since the advents of drones and quadcopters.”

Continuing, he noted that “very much an ongoing investigation” into the objects captured in the videos. Gradisher explained:

“Incursions by [unidentified aerial phenomena] represent a safety hazard to aviators and security issues for operations. The Navy is investigating the incursions seen in the three videos.”

He added that sightings do “occur frequently.”

In separate comments to CNN, Gradisher noted that the three videos are merely the tip of the iceberg. He said:

“This is all about frequent incursions into our training ranges by UAPs.

Those incursions present a safety hazard to the safe flight of our aviators and the security of our operations.

For many years, our aviators didn’t report these incursions because of the stigma attached to previous terminology and theories about what may or may not be in those videos.”

In short: the truth is out there. And the U.S. Navy wants to make it crystal-clear that if we want to find out what exactly those UAPs are, service members should be unashamed to report them without fear.

FBI Seizes Capitol Building LEGO Set From Alleged Rioter’s House

Many of us know, either from our childhood or even our adulthood, that building and collecting LEGO can be a fun hobby that allows us to tap into our creativity in a relaxing, stress-free way.

But what if someone’s LEGO hobby is something much more nefarious – or even seditious in the eyes of the government?

Such may have been the case when special agents with the FBI confiscated a fully completed LEGO set of the U.S. Capitol Building from the home of Robert Morss, 27, whom they allege participated in the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, according to court documents published by The Smoking Gun.

The large LEGO set is comprised of 1,032 pieces and was released in 2016 and is no longer available for retail. The agents seized the finished set along with other items matching those they believe Morss had in his possession when he allegedly stormed the building – including a neck gaiter, a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag, a military-style satchel, a black tourniquet, and military battle dress uniforms.

The documents also note that he “had three different firearms including a handgun, a shotgun and a rifle” in his possession.

According to LEGO, the United States Capitol Building setfocuses on the structure’s neoclassical style facade, steps and lawns” and is “finished with a decorative ‘US Capitol’ nameplate.” In 2019, the product was “retired” – which has less to do with politics and more to do with the limited availability of the company’s unique product lines.

Morss, who is from Pennsylvania, was arrested last month on a range of federal charges. According to the Department of Justice, his alleged crimesinclude assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers; obstruction of an official proceeding; civil disorder; and robbery of personal property of the United States.”

An FBI investigator’s affidavit notes that Morss joined rioters in direct confrontations with officers guarding the Lower West Terrace doors of the Capital in “an intense and prolonged clash between rioters and law enforcement.”

Law enforcement officers claim that they also found a notebook in Morss car that had instructions on a “Step by Step to Create Hometown Militia” that included a list of names, equipment, and sections on “ambush,” “battle drills,” and “formations.” The notebook also contained notes that said “bring assault rifle,” “4 magazines,” and “bring kit/body armor.”

However, the court documents do not indicate whether the LEGO set was deployed in tactical drills prior to the botched uprising.

The DOJ says that roughly 465 individuals have been arrested on charges related the events of Jan. 6.

Neptune, the Roman God of Water, ‘Emerges’ From Waves in Photo During UK Storm

If we were to believe our eyes, it would seem that the ancient Roman god of water himself made an appearance on the shores of New Haven, England, on a day of especially rough surf.

What appears to be the “face” of Neptune was captured on Tuesday when photographer Jeff Overs of the BBC was taking photos of waves crashing over the harbor wall in the port city.

Of course, one is free to believe that the ferocious deity emanated from the depths of the sea to remind us puny humans of his wrath.

But alas, it was likely a simple example of pareidolia – the phenomenon of seeing faces and figures in otherwise random or ambiguous everyday objects.

The photographer snapped the shot amid high tide and winds exceeding 50 miles per hour (80km/h), namely because of the violent nature of the shore.

“It’s become a popular location for photographers because the sea ‘boils’ in high wind against the sea wall,” Overs explained.

“The waves splash into the high wind and when blown back occasionally make patterns that look like ghoulish faces.”

Overs added that one of the small foreground waves even resembles a hand – albeit a pareidolic one.

“It’s a straight shot and I haven’t manipulated the image at all,” he added.

Lunar New Deal: GOP Lawmaker Suggests Altering Moon & Earth’s Orbit to Stop Climate Change

Published

Texas Republican Congressman Louise Gohmert raised the eyebrows of his Congressional colleagues on Tuesday after seemingly suggesting that climate change could be combatted by changing the orbit of the moon, or even altering “Earth’s orbit around the sun.”

Gohmert, who has been decried as the “dumbest member of Congress” for his past absurdly anti-scientific comments regarding the ongoing pandemic and a number of other issues, has been a vocal opponent of progressive legislators’ attempts to put a “Green New Deal” on the government’s agenda.

However, his apparent suggestion of a “Lunar New Deal” to mitigate global warming could take the cake as his most hare-brained idea yet.

The comments came during a House Natural Resources Committee hearing on four pending bills while questioning Jennifer Eberlien of the Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service, reports NBC.

“I understand, from what’s been testified to the Forest Service and the B.L.M. [Bureau of Land Management], you want very much to work on the issue of climate change,” the Texas congressman began.

“I was informed by the immediate past director of NASA that they’ve found that the moon’s orbit is changing slightly and so is the Earth’s orbit around the sun,” he continued.

“We know there’s been significant solar flare activity,” Gohmert said. “And so, is there anything that the National Forest Service or B.L.M. can do to change the course of the moon’s orbit or the Earth’s orbit around the sun?”

“Obviously that would have profound effects on our climate,” the lawmaker added.

Responding, Eberlein said with a smile: “I would have to follow up with on you on that one, Mr. Gohmert.” 

“If you figure out there’s a way in the forest service you could make that change, I’d like to know,” Gohmert responded, without any trace of irony.

Longtime critics of the conservative legislator were besides themselves with bewilderment and mockery over the out-of-this-world suggestion.

On the opposite side of the aisle California Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu suggested that perhaps Marvel Comics superheroine Captain Marvel was up to the task.

“She can alter planetary orbits with her superpowers. I’m going to work on a bipartisan resolution asking for her help,” Lieu wrote on Twitter.

According to NASA, the Earth’s climate has changed throughout history for various reasons, including small variations in the planet’s orbit.

However, the agency’s website notes that this doesn’t discount the fact that anthropogenic or human-caused activities are the culprit of the current warming.

“The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is extremely likely (greater than 95 percent probability) to be the result of human activity since the mid-20th century and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented over millennia,” the site says.
