What I would ask from you is, think back on all your years in the military fighting the Cold War and ask yourself, is it possible you and everyone you were involved with, including the Russians in the same positions, were somehow convinced that the Cold War was real, rather than it actually being real?
Regan was on to something. Look what they did to his mind to silence him.
Seriously though both he and his wife entertained fringe theories and ideas . Neither was closed minded until that mind was closed in a more permanent way. I know I just started a new conspiracy didn't I?

Reagan was interesting from this point of view like you said he was interested in the subject below is an hr long vid about his supposed briefing but I don't think he was in control. I say skip the first 16 min blah blah intro.
If and I mean if Reagan was on to something that either the Joint Chiefs, the NSA, and FBI supposedly had no information on. He may have went behind the backs of several layers of Above and Way Above Top Secret security to find information about the ufo subject. If Reagan was in fact informed of what these ufos were, how many we had recovered, and what their intention was. It was something that he felt that he needed to let not only the American public but the entire world should have been made aware of or should not have been made aware of. Was he given information that some of these ufos had engaged in hostile activities and to the threat that these hostile or peaceful entities pose to not only the United States but to the world and the entirety of mankind itself?
We have to remember that at the time, George Bush Sr was in charge of the CIA at the time. Since this was the case, Bush may or may not have played a hand in Reagan's interest in the subject. Reagan had, in some way, what amounted to either very little or generous amounts of information to thousands of ufo sightings not only across the country but from around the world at his fingertips. If Reagan had discovered or was informed about the truth behind why ufos where and still visiting this planet. Was the information that he knew about so sensitive or so disturbing that it changed his outlook on what he thought Earthly and what was not?
I also saved that video to my "Watch Later" list on my Youtube so i could watch it later.
Well these Early Alien Invasion Scifi Movies basically have the same Elements
Saucer shape ,, UN destructible metal material ,, Humanoid like aliens ,,
Alien control implants ( invasion from mars ) Electronic Magnetic Pulse .. TDTESS
Tho there was Claims that the CIA was involved with The DAY the Earth Stood Still
as in 1951 was a great year for Alien invasion movies just 5 years after Roswell incident
Hmm interesting ...
*During the Time of Truman*
The DAY the Earth Stood Still (1951)
When Worlds Collide (1951)
The Man from Planet X (1951)
The Thing from Another World (1951)
Invasion of Mars (1953)
The War of the Worlds (1953)
*Time of Eisenhower*
It Came From Outer Space (1955)
This Island Earth (1955)
"Earth vs. the Flying Saucers" (1956)
"Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (1956)
So was the Government giving out Visual Hints ??
Or Something Like Government just wanted to see the Public reaction
just in case of a real alien invasion ! ???
pretty much like the 1938 scare of Mercury Theater Orson Wells Radio Version of War of the Worlds
But one Movie in mind that bothers me is
Invasion from mars with the implants

I enjoyed your post.
As regards lost nukes the story they briefed us the most about was the USS Thresher in 1963.
As for "free energy" it won't be ZPF. The Casimir effect is the usual thing discussed, and that force is so negligible that a vast sheet of nano scale gapped plates couldn't transfer enough net usable power to move a pollen grain off the ass end of an ant.
I'd personally say that a molten sulfur and mirror based array in the american southwest (of say 100 miles squared) would be the closest to "free energy" we could get with conventional tech. We could power much of the USA that way; but there is no incentive to do something that useful and beneficial.

Dyslexic eh? So are we to believe then, that people who are unable to write in a syntactically cogent manner are not to be trusted? Should their pontifications be discarded outright?
Shes full of it, the motives are attention grabbing and the dyslexia doesn't help it only exacerbates the condition of a pathological wannebe using her great grandfathers names to sell her snake oil.
Ike would be ashamed of her shes a disgrace to ufology and a coward who hides at the first sign of any criticism...squeak squeak.edit on 4-12-2013 by AthlonSavage because: (no reason given)

I remember reading something billed as the Reagan Briefing about UFOs; Reagan asked if Carter had been told all this stuff, and cracked a joke about Carter not being smart enough to understand it.
Meanwhile, Carter was a Nuclear Engineer, and Reagan was an actor famous for working with a chimpanzee, a sports announcer who didn't let the audio feed interruption get in the way of continuing his game description, and a nondescript but good-looking governor (and primo script reader!) It was obvious to me during the first year of his second term that he had Alzheimers, but it didn't matter. GHWB was running things.
People don't seem to know or forget that Bush I's bestest friend and political supporter was the father of the guy who tried to shoot Reagan. (Wonder where he got the gun and the address of where Reagan was gonna be that day?) If his aim had been a tiny bit better, GHWB would have been President far sooner, with all of his CIA connections, etc. But with Reagan knocked for a loop by almost dying plus the mental deficiencies, it wasn't even necessary to try to knock him off anymore. He willingly played his part, was out of the loop on most things (Bush II set him up with that whole Iran-Contra thing, which is one of the reasons Reagan didn't remember it) and the guys behind the scenes ran everything. Bush I had Eight Years as president during Reagan, then Four More Years after that, then Eight Horrific Years of Bush the Lesser, if you want to look at it that way. We had 20 years of that Reptilian Family and the proof is in the results.
The last time we had a non-puppet for President, he was run out of office for having zipper control issues, the one before that for 'being attacked by a rabbit' and the Iran Hostage situation, and the one before that had his head blown off in broad daylight. Just as a hint to any future lead-takers.
Now, off to listen to Bot's suggestions.edit on 32281012pmWednesdayf28Wed, 04 Dec 2013 22:28:32 -0600America/Chicago by signalfire because: addendum
I think we can say that the Cold War was very real and at times the political tensions ebbed and flowed. However something drastically changed during Reagan's terms in office. Was it due to an alien threat as Ronnie mentioned? Or was it simply that the Soviet Union was broke and out of the game?
