Obama is telling the truth - while trying to make it seem humorous, nice spin.

Excellent first post, nice find!

It isn't out of the question, but I was curious which effort strikes you as even vaguely plausible as a true "filmed on-location?"

There isn't one, yet. Just can't get any traction on the idea. Alas.

Even going at it like "You remember how many recruits you guys got out of 'Final Countdown'!" doesn't work.

eta: Grant you, you have to hum in a contrived antagonist, sort of like the attack at Pearl Harbor for FC. If the whole movie had been "we just got sucked into a noisy vortex thingy and now we're in...1927" it wouldn't have worked. "Let's float around for two hours repairing systems and then wait for the next vortex thingy" would have sucked.

So, what's the choices. You could try the 'sad but terminal control systems failure' thing, but it's hard to get a really good scare on plot wise if it's just 'the ship re-aligned with Einsteinian space time ok...but everyone in it got turned into chutney', if there's no antagonist to strive against other than 'it took a long ass time to get the transfer functions just right - most of the time'.

It's hard to work up drama for 'there's a skanky ocean-like body of water with scum in it', or 'it's red and dim and sandy'. Once you've seen a lichen it's pretty boring even if you do weird close-ups with jarring piano chords like Ron Howard in Apollo 13. And cliff structures that sort of look like Anasazi cliff dwellings but might be just odd sandstone formations are great the first time but after that, unless you find something in one which no one has (guess you could make that your macguffin) they're pretty much nothing.

Let's see, what else. There's no fish. You could maybe have everyone catch a disease but there's nothing you can catch, apparently.

Pretty undramatic to show "I laid out under the crop lights ... again" or "We're OUT OF TENNIS BALLS (jarring piano chords)" or "The last can of dip...IT'S GONE!" (jarring piano chords)

So, you would have to not have your drama at planet Dirt. I guess you'd have to have the guys go on to an unannounced NEW location, where they discover what the secret standing orders are for new encounters or something.

Except that with Truman, Reagan, perhaps Kennedy, and to a lesser extent Clinton, we're talking about intelligent, resourceful, calculating, discreet, patriotic, trustworthy (with respect to state secrets - not their personal, ahem, weaknesses), men of their word. Intellect, discretion, etc., go a long way toward moving up a few notches on the 'privileged-info' ladder.

Obama? I don't think so. Intellect? Discretion? Patriotism? Don't make me laugh.

That was pretty amusing.. .thanks.

Oh, to know what you might know... heh. But yeah, that's how it likely is for most real estate we're certainly not finding yet.

Sometimes you come across individuals involved in groups that would be right in the thick of the UFO/Alien experience. And they would be sworn to a secrecy clause. Very likely military or a type of security agency NSA,CIA,FBI or any number of Black Ops group.

I can only say that I believe all that has been in Area 51 or similar types of holding facilities or research facilities has been of Terrestrial origin.

There will be no official disclosure(imho).

Any disclosure must come with deniability. Therefore, it will not come from "official" sources.

Oh course there wont be.
The people begging for disclosure will yell "false flag, it's fake".

It has happened every time any current or former government official has said something about aliens..(not just in the us)

At this point it will be a waste of their time, the tax payers time.

People who want disclosure wouldn't know how to handle it.

They already know what THEY WANT to hear. So if it isn't:
space fairies, with magical powers zipping bubba up to the spaceship.

They will not be happy.

I don't want to over-analyze but the point where Obama says
"they exercize strict control over us" .. that extra statement is so unnecessary that it holds much truth in my opinion,
also look at how he forces himself to laugh and smile ridiculously hard when Kimmel says "they will be analyzing your facial expressions .."

BUT, the most important statement that no one has talked about is one of the last things he says :
"I .. I ... I ..I can't reveal anything"
> oh really ? (Kimmel asks)
and then he nods so seriously, he was being honest that moment and actually admitting that there are ET-secrets
that we are not allowed to know about. This is the first time that an active president openly admits there is
stuff out there that "they" don't want the world to know, interesting times.
