Yep "The Thing", you are talking about this picture of a mountain:
Verifiabe source of the Aldrin quote, please?
Aldrin was visiting the region with a tour group. He was taken to a hospital in Christchurch, New Zealand, where he spent a week recovering from congestion in his lungs. His manager described the evacuation as "grueling" at the time, but noted that Aldrin was in good spirits as his body responded well to antibiotics.
...In a country that has a large, educated population there is a large subset of individuals who suffer from...a form of mental illness that doesn't interfere with your everyday life...... if there is a condition that is threatening to the social structure - like the idea that the aliens are here and they are taking our babies, or that God hates people of a certain creed or colour...they can end up encouraging each other to get a lot sicker, or they strap on belts and make themselves human bombs. So we have to know how to deal with these people and how to prevent them from being dangerous to others...
'So, what do we do?...
'The way to do it is to construct a framework whereby they can parse out the things that they've heard that are not true, and you whittle it down to a manageable story. A story like this: "There were three spaceships that came here over thirty years, and we've got one of them. We can't figure out how it works, we've crashed it because there's a lot of physics that we've still got to learn. We do have something that's like a magnethydrodynamic toroid, and it really did get a craft off the ground, but it smelled bad and it killed a couple of pilots. And we're really sorry about that, but we did it because we've got this machine that came from another planet, and we need to know how it works." '
'How do you tell people that story? If it's true?' he added, almost parenthetically.
"If you were to give them the core story right off the bat, they'd get sick, so you do it slowly over ten or twenty years.You put out a bunch of movies, a bunch of books, a bunch of stories, a bunch of Internet memes about reptilian aliens eating our children, ...Then one day you say, "Hey, all that stuff is nonsense, relax, it's not that bad, you don't have to worry, the reality is this..."

Something much closer to home that’s always been with us makes far more sense than aliens from across the star systems traveling here to observe our culture and hide themselves from us. Considering how we relate to other life here on our planet, the ego required to believe any being from across the stars would have that level of understanding out us, and respect towards us and our culture is truly remarkable.
The behavior described would make more sense for something at home. You spy on your neighbors hoping they don’t see you.

UFO lore has been poisoned for decades by the spooks. Their memes and themes used as a cover for unethical practices and technoscams.

TLDR : UFO lore has been poisoned for decades by the spooks. Their memes and themes used as a cover for unethical practices and technoscams. But now "conspiracy" has gone mainstream across the US it now presents a threat to the fabric of society. America needs to reel it all in, spooks need to cover their own asses and ufology need to be reset.
spooks need to cover their own asses and ufology need to be reset

The real question I have ask repeatedly is why are we doing this now?
Some bad this way comes
" 1. Pursuant to the request of the Assistant Director for Scientific Intelligence, the undersigned Panel of Scientific Consultants has met to evaluate any possible threat to national security posed by Unidentified Flying Objects ("Flying Saucers"), and to make recommendations thereon. The Panel has received the evidence as presented by cognizant intelligence agencies, primarily the Air Technical Intelligence Center, and has reviewed a selection of the best documented incidents.
2. As a result of its considerations, the Panel _concludes_:
a. That the evidence presented on Unidentified Flying Objects shows no indication that these phenomena constitute a direct physical threat to national security.
We firmly believe that there is no residuum of cases which indicates Phenomena which are attributable to foreign artifacts capable of hostile acts, and that there is no evidence that the phenomena indicates a need for the revision of current scientific concepts.
3.The Panel further _concludes_:
a. That the continued emphasis on the reporting of these phenomena does, in these parlous times, result in a threat to the orderly functioning of the protective organs of the body politic.
We cite as examples the clogging of channels of communication by irrelevant reports, the danger of being led by continued false alarms to ignore real indications of hostile action, and the cultivation of a morbid national psychology in which skilful hostile propaganda could induce hysterical behavior and harmful distrust of duty constituted authority.
4. In order most effectively to strengthen the national facilities for the timely recognition and the appropriate handling of true indications of hostile action, and to minimize the concomitant dangers alluded to above, the Panel recommends:
a. That the national security agencies take immediate steps to strip the Unidentified Flying Objects of the special status they have been given and the aura of mystery they have unfortunately acquired;
b. That the national security agencies institute policies on intelligence, training, and public education designed to prepare the material defenses and the morale of the country to recognize most promptly and to react most effectively to true indications of hostile intent or action.

The only thing more alien than something that came from another planet would be something the came from a completely different universe (dimension). Still alien.

So if TPTB are heavily hinting at something, I will continue to remain skeptical until someone actually comes up with the beef.
That's what they want you to do. They know that about you.
