'Should prove to be an interesting conference."
Actualy it sounds like it will be mostly rehash of incidents we have heard over and over nothing new.

so, this may bring more awareness for the average public, but this is known for some time

But it won't necessarily bring more awareness for the average public because (as I have said before) this is NOT a press conference; it is merely a panel of people giving a lecture (which the have given before) to a private club.

Giving a presentation to The National Press Club is not the same as giving a press conference. I suppose IF (and that's a big if) one of the members of the club finds the lecture interesting and decides to pursue it more, then it could potentially raise public awareness.

This panel has given a similar (maybe even the same?) lecture to other private groups before, so -- as you indicated -- it isn't like something new is necessarily going to come out of this particular presentation.

I'm only asking because I can't see any evidence that this presentation is even going to happen on the day quoted, according to Reuters this is booked to be happening on 27/09/10 at 12:30pm in the Holeman lounge.......yet according to the NPC there is no booking for that date and time.......surely if they had been invited then the NPC would have updated their booking calender for an event that is due to take place in 7 days??



Actually, yes there is a booking. Click on the 27th of September. I just did and it's there.

Peace be with you.

So it is........I checked last night and again this morning and it wasn't there.........They must have rustled up the booking fee then

"Ufology has to do some SERIOUS housekeeping before that environment could ever be created. Until then, like I said we are all pissing in the wind. "
I so agree, there are just to many using this subject to sell a book or make a buck and don't mind twisting and fat straight out lying.
Like all subjects if there were not hoaxers...lyers..those out to suck a $ out of us...we could have truth, clerity, finaly know.

I did read a 'channelling' a little while ago in which the 'light being' who was being channelled said they had prevented nuclear war by inactivating the weapons, I seem to remember that he/she also said that they had also stopped them 'nuking' space, or something like that, and that the 'light workers' were also getting rid of all their debris which was floating around in space. Also said that TPTB were aware of this and were panicking.

Although I might read a channelling from time to time, I treat them with the greatest skepticism. Not because I think it's impossible, but because there is so obviously enormous room for all kinds of disinfo and fantasies in this arena.

Anyhow, the OP reminded me of what I had read. If I can find the link I'll post it.

There have been British officers who have come out and stated, on record that. They developed a *relationship* with their Russian counterparts to stop a nuclear holocaust breaking out by accident, in part because of the activities of UFOs. In other part it was because of natural phenomenon triggering alerts on the defense grid. You seem to lack the basic understanding of military balance. Wars tend to only break out when one side doesn't have a clue about the other side's activities.

That's because either, one side is planning an attack, or it kicks off by accident. Both NATO and the Warsaw pact allowed blatant spying by each other military intelligence to help stop any accidental conflicts. Sop much so that when the arms limitation treaties came in NATO officers have said in public. "The Russian guy hugged me and said, I hoped it would include you as you know what's really going on".. "I myself was happy to see my Russian counterpart as he knew full well of our capabilities"..

Both sides played lip service to being *at loggerheads*. The truth was far more mundane and a hell of a lot more practical. Neither side wanted to see some conflagration kick off because of a mistake. While their political *Masters* sabre rattled for the public, the military arms of both forces quietly tried to make sure the world was as safe as was possible.

The idea they led their lives in some sort of *splendid isolation* is simply wrong.

this makes me think of the song Ariels in the Sky by System and-

to do his work, his strange work,
and perform his task, his alien task.

that is to say, not a part of this creation.

"There's an FBI document from 1950 that shows they had already recovered three crashed saucers in New Mexico with little alien guys aboard. "
Wow the little guys sure do crash a lot! Wonder what their problem is, could they have tried our famed "firewater" and become hooked?:-)



The FBI document was sent to J. Edgar Hoover on March 22, 1950, and stated that an Air Force investigator had revealed that three "flying saucers" had been recovered in New Mexico. They were all about 50 feet in diameter and each contained three small humanoids about three feet tall, "dressed in metallic cloth of a very fine texture."

There is no date or location for when these craft were recovered, but it sounds like something that the writer Frank Scully might have gotten hold of, at least in a garbled version.

This document speculates that radar might have interferred with the control systems of the alien craft, but I've heard other versions as well, such as how they fired on them with some early types of surface-to-air missiles that had proximity fuses, and might have brought them down that way.

I don't know and in the absence of more declassified documents no one is ever going to know.

According to this declassified CIA document from May 27, 1953, the investigation of UFOs was assigned to the Physics and Electronics Division of the CIA's Office of Scientific Intelligence.

All files held by the Applied Science Division and Counter-Intelligence Division were to be turned over to this department. The Applied Sciences Division would continue to "provide support from a weapons and hardware standpoint." What wepaons and hardware, we might well ask?

This document gives us a small indication of the real UFO investigation that was going on, apart from Project Blue Book.

In January 1949, General Charles Cabell, Director of Air Force Intelligence, stated that only about 20% of UFO reports had really ben explained, and the remainder were almost certainly not any known type of domestic or foerign aircraft.e

Just the opposite, the UFO reports "defy many well-defined limits in aeronautical sciences", at least as they were known in 1949.

This was the opposite of what they were telling the public.

To those who claim this is not scheduled at the Press Club, I just checked. It most certainly is as of my typing this in.

Try clicking on the date in question on the calendar. And there it is.

Sigh...

:: I see now this info was posted previously... my bad and sorry for that. Will try harder to quell enthusiasm.

In a last ditch effort, I include:

One's position in life has little to nothing to do with one's ability to accurately deal with witnessing things that defy current logic.


Except the UFO phenomenon doesn't really defy current logic. There are stranger things happening within quantum mechanics. I'll also point you to the Cometa Report, where the only logical explanation left was the alien equation.

Maybe the radiation from the nukes caused the ionized aerial objects hovering overhead and also caused the circuits to malfunction as well.

Wikileaks released the footage of the reuters reporters being murdered.

Is reuters repaying a favour and are wiki going to weigh in with something to do with this. Wiki have spoke how there is a widespread deception going on. Manning also spoke about how public debate was needed over what files he seen.

Wouldn't it be funny if all the nukes have actually being 'turned off' by these unidentified flying objects. Maybe nobody has any nukes that work now. Now that would crack me up. Maybe thats what wiki has being threating the whitehouse with and why the whitehouse wish to destroy wiki.

I can dream , can't I

Interesting opinions on that, I guess we'll just have to wait and see what kind of "new disclorsure" is coming out at the end.

I'm not claiming that it isn't on the National Press Club Schedule (it wasn't originally, but I see now that it is)...But whether or not it's on the schedule is not the point I'm trying to make.

My point is that people on this thread are saying things like "I can't wait to hear what information comes out of this press conference". HOWEVER, this is NOT a "press conference" -- it is a lecture given to a private club. The National Press Club is a private club, not a news agency. This presentation won't necessarily provide us with any new information.

These people on this panel giving the presentation are part of a lecture circuit. These former USAF guys have given a similar lecture (maybe even the same lecture?) to other private groups. There is no reason to believe that these guys will say anything new that they haven't already said.

It's not a story that they are talking to "the media", because they are not. They may be making this presentation to members of the media, but this is not a media event -- There is a big difference. Presenting this lecture to the Press Club is akin to presenting to the National Association of Realtors. If the media wants to report on this story, the necessary information is already out there.

Sure -- the topic they are discussing is interesting. THAT'S the story -- not the fact that they are giving this presentation to the Press Club.

The press conference will also address
It says in the article it is a press conference, it is being held at the National Press Club, in fact, who really cares!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What's important is what they say, not how you want to label the style of the presentation. It clearly says "this is a public-awareness issue" and that they will be demanding answers from the Government. Move along.

The "article" is actually a "Press Release" written by the people giving the lecture. Neither Reuters nor the National Press Club wrote the press release:

SOURCE Former U.S. Air Force Officer Robert Salas, and Researcher Robert Hastings

But, you are right that what they say may be important (and I said that in my post)...

...HOWEVER, what they may say will not necessarily be anything new, because this same panel has given this lecture before to other private groups.

The only way this will raise public awareness is IF (and that's a big if) some member of the Press Club finds the lecture interesting enough to pursue additional information. It's very possible that there will not be ANY articles written by the media about this lecture.


EDIT TO ADD:
Well, now that I think about it, there may be due-paying members of the Press Club who may write for "alternative" news sources who may be at the club that day for this lecture. However, those people probably have already written articles about these panelists and what they have to say...so no additional public awareness there, either.

Ah, thank you and point taken. I was reacting to posts, (not just yours) that were saying it wasn't on the event list.

Your characterization of it is correct... although the NPC lists it as a "News Conference," whatever that means.

Having said that, I would be willing to go along with the premise that nothing new will be voiced, although of course I'd hope to hear something new, some pattern from their analysis or whatever... we'll see, I guess, but like you my hope level is, um, a tad limited.

I think (hope? Ha!) these folks mean well, but nothing much of consequence is going to come of it, in my opinion, just more cases to look at or not.

Here's a snippet or two from what was sent to our group, the League of Western Fortean Intermediatists, with a plea for donations in the next paragraph... I just posted it along with all the other events we get wind of.



[...] The purpose of the event is to focus worldwide media attention on the reality and importance of the situation. [...] At the press conference, scheduled for September 27th, 2010, seven ex-USAF personnel, including Mr. Salas, author of "Faded Giant", will discuss their nuke related UFO experiences. Mr. Hastings will briefly summarize his 37 years of research into the UFO-Nuke phenomenon, and then introduce the witnesses. Mr. Salas will then offer concluding remarks. [...]


Thanks for replying... peace.
