Congressional Hearing Initiative Update


http://www.paradigmresearchgroup.org/Update11-29-14.htm

All Citizen Hearing on Disclosure DVD sets were delivered to the House and Senate. Direct contact with congressional offices will begin on December 1. Emphasis will be on Members of key committees and  Members referred to PRG by constituents. The key committees are these: House: Intelligence; Science, Space and Technology; Homeland Security; Oversight and Governmental Reform Senate: Intelligence; Commerce, Science and Transportation; Homeland Security; and Governmental Affairs.

Social Media Campaign
The social media campaign to ensure the DVDs are reviewed by congressional staff is moving forward rapidly. The number of tweets with hashtag #disclosure since Oct. 31 is 385,800The campaign is being run from three web locations: The Disclosure Lobby (Facebook), www.faxonwashington.orgwww.disclosure.media and will continue throughout December. 

Media Coverage
Due to the presidential immigration directive and the pending events in Missouri, most congressional staffers were still in town when the CHI was well covered in the Washington Times on Sunday and Monday, November 23, 24.

                 (expanded article)


Given all congressional staff read the political sections of the two major DC papers daily and coupled with the social media campaign, it is fair to say awareness of the CHI on Capitol Hill is well underway.

Citizen Hearing on Disclosure



The Congressional Hearing Initiative would not be possible without the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure held at the National Press Club April 29 to May 3, 2013. The DVD video record of the CHD just sent to Congress will open the door for the necessary meetings needed to establish a consensus for hearings. Presently a commercial quality version of the CHD DVD is available at the    CHD website.
[The CHD was produced by CHD2 Productions in conjunction with Paradigm Research Group

Stephen Bassett Interviewed on altPOV.tv Radio (Skype Video)



Published on 26 Nov 2014
Stephen Bassett has been a leading advocate for ending the 67-year government imposed truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. In this incredible interview, he discusses the obstacles he has faced over the years, and how, over time, the U.S. government has been losing it's very firm grip on its secrecy campaign.

Did you know that the CIA actually founded and funded the National Enquirer to spread disinformation and misinformation to millions of Americans? Did you know that the Cold War was the perfect alibi for those who have been suppressing the truth?

Thanks to the advent of the Internet and cyberspace, people have been able to communicate with each other - across the globe - more and easier than ever before. Bassett's www.ParadigmResearchGroup.org has been operating in cyberspace since 2001 and, along with other UFO researchers, lobbyists and exopolitical advocates, has a plan in place that may lead to full disclosure by February 2015 …

Spacing Out! Ep. 98 - Roswell UFO researcher claims he has alien photos


Published on 21 Nov 2014
A key researcher of the 1947 Roswell UFO incident claims he has photos of an extraterrestrial. That and other UFO news on this episode of Spacing Out!

Unknown Objects Caught on Video Over Corby U.K.


UFO Casebook
Original Source: Mufon

I was shocked the object appeared to go down and out of sight...

Corby, Great Britain  19th November 2014
I was standing outside my front door when I caught a glimpse of something out of the corner of my eye and saw something shoot across the sky; then suddenly stop at that point.
I got my phone out and recorded the object. I wasn't sure what to think when I first saw the object.
It had green lights that seemed to be flashing randomly; I could just make out it was a solid object and the way it moved from right to left and up and down, I couldn't explain it; I'm baffled.
I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. I think I was shocked the object appeared to go down and out of sight. I was rooted to the spot; it took me about 10 minutes to move and go inside.
Then I kept going in and out the front door in case I saw it again. It was a feeling of disbelief.
Did I really see that, or was I just imagining it; but I have video footage, that's says I did. I'm still in a bit of shock now an hour later.

News 9 Investigates The Phenomenon Of RODS


By Kelly Ogle - News 9

Cameras capture a variety of moments in time, but sometimes they capture something else, something unexplained. One man from New Mexico believes he's discovered a new life form, which has spurred a worldwide debate.
"There is a phenomenon that exist among us," said Jose Escamilla, founder and researcher of RODS. "They're like sky fish. They swim through the air like fish."

He first captured a strange image on his photographs back in 1994.

"At first I thought they were insects, birds you know floating close to the lens of the camera," he said.

However, at such a high shutter setting, he says he eliminated the possibility of it being an insect or a bird, but something else, something mysterious.

"We think it's a living entity of some kind. It does have behavior of being alive," said Escamilla. "They're very evasive, they're super fast."

Escamilla calls this entity a ROD, measuring one to six feet long with a cylinder body and multiple sets of wings.

"We don't know what they're doing here. We don't know how long they've been here," he said. "We have rock carvings that appears to show RODS on carve drawings from 50,000 years ago."

Skeptics, however, don't buy into the ROD theory. Skeptics like Mark Zimmerman, an assistant Professor of Photography at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond.

"I hate to call myself a skeptic, but I'm probably labelled as that because I just think there's some sort of scientific answer for things like this," said Zimmerman. "I think it's interesting and makes for a good topic of discussion."

In fact, he discussed the phenomenon in class recently after one of his students, Erick Perry, captured what appears to be a ROD in a photograph taken for a class assignment.

"It was actually somebody in class who pointed it out," said Perry.

As part of the assignment, Perry took the same photograph at a cemetery during different times of the day. In the night photograph, a white object appeared in the upper right-handed corner.

"People in class joked around about it, like UFOs, but most likely, it was probably like a bug or a plane or something," he said. "The fact that it was in a cemetery made it a little more creepy."

Zimmerman agrees the object is more than likely not out of this world.

"You can capture planes as they're going across the sky, satellites, things that you typically wouldn't see other than like a dot typically when you look up," he said. "Whereas with the longer shutter, when it's open, things will move and light will reflect off of it."

Wanting to prove his point, Zimmerman shot a series of photographs at different exposure times around a porch light, capturing what appears to be objects similar to Rods, but actually turned out to be moths. Like other camera experts, Zimmerman says cameras are capable of producing artifacts, something in the picture that wasn't actually there.

Escamilla viewed Perry's photograph from class and says the mysterious object is not a ROD, but perhaps an airplane. However, he says that doesn't disprove his ROD theory.

"Each object has its own certain footprint, it's certain pattern of flight, you can tell what an insect looks like, you can tell what a bird looks like, a dragonfly and a ROD is a ROD," he said.

Escamilla says RODS can be seen anywhere but their hotbeds are in Washington DC, New Orleans, Canada, Mexico, Texas, Arizona and California the U.S. He says they've also been captured in Scotland, Russia, Japan, China, Germany and the UK.

Escamilla has seen RODS in photographs and video of space and even underwater. He even spied a ROD in video taken from SkyNews9 during tornado coverage in 1999.

"Those RODS are huge. That one white ROD that comes out of the top of the cloud, that cloud front was 10 miles away from the helicopter and it comes out in three frames. That thing must have been a 100 feet in length," said Escamilla.

So what do you believe? Do rods exist among us, these strange living things that appear and disappear in the blink of an eye, caught at just the right moment in time?

"I think everyone always has some sort of conspiracy on anything. I mean, it could be Bigfoot," said Zimmerman.

"This phenomenon is real and for those of you who don't believe in it, that's your prerogative. You can believe what you want, or disbelieve, but the fact is, these things are here," said Escamilla. "They are doing something here. We don't know what they do but they are doing it."

Escamilla says technology has improved the documentation of RODS, where he's now able to capture them using infrared filters and in high-speed footage.

Activist demands congressional action on aliens — of the extraterrestrial kind (Steve Bassett)



While Congress and the White House argue over illegal aliens, Stephen Bassett — founder of Paradigm Research Group and a registered lobbyist - continues to demand that lawmakers, the White House and assorted officials tell what they know about aliens. As in extraterrestrials.

The determined Mr. Bassett has already organized a “Citizen Hearing on Disclosure” last year at the National Press Club in the nation’s capital. A DVD of the 30-hour close encounter between witnesses, six former congressmen, law enforcement, experts and journalists was sent to all members of Congress on Nov. 5, as a matter of fact.

Mr. Basset now says he will “renew direct engagement” with lawmakers and has organized an aggressive social media campaign among like-minded voters who also want answers about UFO sightings, alien technology and other matters. He offers a dozen sample tweets for interested folk, a #disclosure hashtag and a mission statement: “Dedicated to ending the government imposed
truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.”

Congress last addressed the issue formally in 1968, Mr. Bassett says.

There is some transparency afoot, though. In 2011, the FBI released a limited number of documents - immediately deemed the “X-Files” by the eager press - still found in what the agency deemed its online “vault.” In 2009, the NSA also declassified some historical information and made it public online, right alongside material related to POWs and the Kennedy assassination.

Other governments have embraced transparency even further; Britain’s defense agency released 52,000 pages of formerly classified material simply titled “UFOS” to the public in 2013. Millions of curious viewers from 160 nations promptly visited the archives site online.

Mr. Bassett, meanwhile, is ready to rumble.

“This will be a concentrated three-month effort accompanied by substantial media coverage. If congressional hearings are held, it is quite likely the truth embargo will collapse,” he predicts.

Did We Find Another Planet In Our Solar System?


Published on 21 Nov 2014

It’s long been theorized that there is a planet in our solar system that is beyond Neptune and Pluto. Amy is here to discuss new evidence that might back up this theory.

MUFON Kick Starter - A New Global UFO Database


The Mutual UFO Network has designed a new system to capture UFO reports, display the data, and find answers. Now we need to build it.

First things first. Some good news about taxes: MUFON is a 501(3)c non-profit. Your donation is tax deductible! 

Second important line of business: Existing members and donors! We have you covered. Please be assured that we recognize your support through the years! If you are an existing member of MUFON and select a reward that includes a 2-year Premium Explorer membership, 2 awesome things will happen:

1) Your existing membership will be upgraded to Explorer level. (scroll to the very bottom of the page for the fine print on this new premium membership.)
2) Your membership will be extended 2-years from the expiration date of your current membership. 

**And a special thanks to James Fox for the interview clips at the beginning of the video, as well as his endorsement of this project.**

Now to answer the big questions.

WHAT exactly are we trying to accomplish? 

WHAT are the rewards?

WHO is MUFON? And WHY are we qualified? 

WHEN will we launch our new system? 

WHY do we need 78k? 

Ok, let's dive in.

WHAT exactly are we trying to accomplish?



WHAT exactly are we trying to accomplish?


If you'd rather see it than read about it, check out our prototype. Remember, a prototype is just the visual mock-up of what we are trying to build.
If you'd rather see it than read about it, check out our prototype. Remember, a prototype is just the visual mock-up of what we are trying to build.
1) Improve the usability of the "Report a UFO" experience to gather MORE data and CLEANER data. With better design, we can ensure that fewer people abandon their report before finishing. We also need to revise which questions are asked, and how. Test out the first draft of our redesign.

2) Cleaner data will allow us to do more with that data. We want to provide a free, accessible and robust interface to filter, sort, search and visualize the data. This will help professional and armchair researchers find patterns and possibly even answers in the UFO data. 

Here are a few examples of the types of searches you will easily be able to do. 

"Show all black triangle sightings with more than 2 witnesses that occurred in the state of New York during the month of January from 1981-1992"

"Show only reports that have been reported by government officials that include official government documents, involving green lights"

"Show all sightings that happened near airports, in daylight, with more than 3 testimonials, including images"

3) Allow historical, heavily-researched cases to be searched alongside the thousands of incoming reports. Cases from antiquity, Project Blue Book, the COMETA report and other reputable sources will be tagged with metadata and will be searchable as a result. Access to books, articles, papers and other documentation will be integrated into the database. (In a nutshell, get Hangar 1 Case Files Online.)

4) Improve the speed and security of the database. Make sure it's snappy as well as protected from potential hacks.

5) Create a more valuable member experience. Our membership dues are what keep our lights on. With the new online system we will be able to offer more value to our generous members. With a better membership, we hope to significantly grow our member base and our operational budget in kind. Then we can engage in even more investigative journalism and activism and fund important research. It's a win-win. Members get more and MUFON can do more. Here are a few new things we want to offer our members:

A logged in state, with an online member profile (public or private)
Custom saved searches 
Optional alerts when new reports match a save search
Premium database features
Database CSV export ability
Bookmarked reports and articles
Enhanced commenting and community features
Integrated polling and voting on important UFO and MUFON issues
Automatic MUFON Store discounts
Better integrations with local chapter activity and events
Continued early access to the MUFON Journal (but, in the spirit of free information, back issues will be accessible to the public)

Draft of Member Profile page

Draft of Member Profile page
 6) Improve the general usability, visual design and scientific tone of the website. Create a better content organization that makes MUFON.com more useful and usable on desktop computers, tablets and mobile devices.

Ex-NASA Worker Claims She Saw Humans on Mars in 1979


By Paul Seaburn

For those of you tired of looking at pictures from Mars that appear to be skulls, levitating rocks or animals, here’s a story with a new twist. An audio clip posted on YouTube from a Coast to Coast AM show has a woman claiming to be an ex-NASA employee also claiming that she and some colleagues were watching a video feed in 1979 from the Viking lander when they saw two human-like figures walking around.



“Jackie” called in to tell her story to John Lear, the former CIA pilot, ufologist and well-known conspiracy theorist. She is heard saying she handled the downlink telemetry from Viking. She and six coworkers were watching a group of monitors when the incident occurred.
Then I saw two men in space suits – not the bulky suits we normally used, but they looked protective. They came over the horizon walking to the Viking Explorer.
At that point the video feed cut out, so she says they went “upstairs” but the door was locked and paper was taped over the window so they couldn’t see in. Her question to Lear was whether the men she saw were from NASA.
Lear, who claims NASA landed on Mars in 1966, responds that they were probably from NASA and were there to do repairs on Viking. He said the light spacesuits weren’t even necessary because humans can adapt to breath the Martian atmosphere. After some banter with the host of the show, the audio clip ends.
As expected, there’s both buzz and questions about Jackie’s claim, not to mention Lear’s response. She calls it a “27-year-old mystery” but 1979 is actually 35 years ago. The clip is from 2014 and was posted in September but there’s no specific date of the broadcast. None of her coworkers were with her to corroborate the story. John Lear has many interesting and controversial theories, too numerous to mention (see Micah Hanks’ article for more info), about UFOs, aliens, life on the moon, NASA’s cover-ups of its work with extraterrestrials and 9/11 conspiracies.
Any thoughts? It’s an interesting story. Now that it’s out, let’s hope Jackie’s coworkers come forward with more information.

UFO experts say 'we are not alone'


By Michelle Basch

WASHINGTON -- UFOs were the topic of a panel discussion Wednesday night at American University, and one of the speakers used the occasion to reveal evidence he called a "smoking gun."

"We have come into possession of a couple of Kodachrome color slides of an alien being lying in a glass case," author and researcher Thomas Carey told the near-capacity crowd in Abramson Recital Hall.

He's been researching the 1947 Roswell incident since 1991.

"What's interesting is, the film is dated 1947. We took it to the official historian of Kodak up in Rochester, New York, and he did his due diligence on it, and he said yes, this filmstrip, the slides are from 1947. It's 1947 stock. And from the emulsions on the image, it's not something that's been Photoshopped like today. It's original 1947 images, and it shows an alien who's been partially dissected lying in a case."

Carey says the being looked like what he thought an alien from the famous Roswell incident would look like.

"3 and a half to 4 feet tall, the head is almost insect-like. The head has been severed, and there's been a partial autopsy; the innards have been removed, and we believe the cadaver has been embalmed, at least at the time this picture was taken. The owners of the slide -- it's an amazing story. The woman was a high-powered Midland, Texas, lawyer with a pilot's license. We think she was involved in intelligence in World War II, and her husband was a field geologist for an oil company."

Carey says he plans to reveal the images early next year.

Another panelist, Dr. Richard Haines, is a retired NASA scientist and co-founder of NARCAP (National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena), which provides pilots with an anonymous way to report sightings they can't explain.

"We're pretty ignorant yet about what we're dealing with. And that's the birth of a science. That's how most sciences begin," he said.

Haines says NARCAP has collected hundreds and hundreds of UFO cases.

"Our government is not taking the subject seriously. My role, or mission, if you will, is to bring this to the attention of our aviation world, at the union level, at the airline level and at the government level. I'm finding hardly any difficulty doing that in foreign countries. I'm having a great deal of difficulty in America, and I don't know why."

Leslie Kean is an investigative journalist, co-founder of the Coalition for Freedom of Information and author of the New York Times bestseller "UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record."

She wrote her first story about UFOs in 2000.

"My whole life was changed at that point. I was so compelled and so interested and so curious about this UFO phenomenon, because the more I studied it, the more I realized that you couldn't write it off. … It's not like you learn ways of explaining it. You learn more and more about the mystery of it, and the incredible documentation that's out there," she said.

During her presentation, she detailed several interesting UFO cases, and showed some photographs, including one of a shiny, circular object.

"This is an incredible photograph that was taken over Costa Rica in 1971 by a government plane, a mapping plane, that had a camera strapped underneath the aircraft. And every 17 seconds it took a photograph of the ground. The dark area is a lake, and ... the lighter area is the land, and over that lake there's a disc-shaped object."

Kean says Chile and France have full-time government staffers who do nothing but seriously investigate UFO cases, and she thinks the same is needed in the U.S.

"I'm trying to make the point that our scientists need to get more involved. In order for that to happen, we need a government agency here that will open the doors to allowing our scientists to engage with this topic."

The most riveting presentation of the night came from retired U.S. Air Force Colonel Charles Halt, one of the witnesses of a famous series of UFO sightings in England in 1980 known as the Rendlesham Forest incident.

Halt says he went into the forest to check out a report that a UFO had landed there. He saw three indentations in the ground that were spaced evenly, and a Geiger counter showed abnormally high levels of radiation in the area.

Mum catches 'UFO' on camera and proclaims: "It was unbelievable, I've never seen anything like it"


By Rebekah Holliday

Colourful craft flew fast across the sky in Liverpool, sparking speculation among residents about what it was?

This is the intriguing moment a multi-coloured 'UFO' was caught on camera soaring through the night sky above a city in Britain.
First it was bright blue, then red and then amber – causing Giedre Misiunaite to wonder what on Earth was flying overhead.
The 28-year-old mum and her husband were left stunned by the strange phenomenon.

"We were standing there in the backyard having a smoke and my husband said, 'look at that!' the Liverpool Echo reports.
"It was bright blue and then it was staying still – like it was floating –  and then it went really, really fast backwards and forwards.
"And then it went amber and then red.
"Then it just stood still and then disappeared but it came back about 10 minutes later.
"I'm sure other people must have seen it because we went for a drive and we saw other people standing outside in their pyjamas."

Giedre, from Old Swan, Liverpool, added: "I'm sure it wasn't a plane, it was 100 miles too fast for a plane ... It was just unbelievable – I've never seen anything like that in my life."
And she wasn't the only resident to spot the mysterious UFO.
Heather Prescott told the Echo via Twitter that she saw something strange overhead but assumed it was a lantern.

"Just an orange light out of (the) living room, botanic park, Littlewoods , Edge Lane direction but again presume lantern," she wrote.

Mrs Misiunaite said she had no idea what the mysterious light was.
See the video below and make up you're own mind – we've slowed down the vision so you can get a better look.
