US Select Senate Intelligence Committee directs Department of National Intelligence to report on Unidentified Ariel Phenomenon

Senator Marco Rubio's reference to UAP catches observers off-guard

Press Release

Toronto [ZNN] In an unprecedented legislative attempt to respond to growing pressure within the US Senate, Senator Marco Rubio Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has broken with tradition by directing the Department of National Intelligence (DNI) to report on unidentified aerial phenomenon (UAP) in its annuaINTELLIGENCE AUTHORIZATION ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2021. Stemming from Pentagon briefings on UAP/UFOs with Senators, they want to know more.

The terminology - unidentified aerial phenomenon - has never before been used in modern-day Senate committee annual fiscal reports. This has caught many political observers off-guard. The term unidentified aerial phenomenon (UAP) replaces the acronym UFO - unidentified flying objects - in official circles.
  • In the AUTHORIZATION ACT SECTION designated as -‘Advanced Aerial Threats', the SELECT SENATE COMMITTEE states, [it] "...supports the efforts of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force at the Office of Naval Intelligenceto standardize collection and reporting on unidentified aerial phenomenon, any links they have to adversarial foreign governments, and the threat they pose to U.S. military assets and installations.”
  • The Committee also stated, “… the Committee remains concerned that there is no unified, comprehensive process within the Federal Government for collecting and analyzing intelligence on unidentified aerial phenomena, despite the potential threat.”
The 'requirement to report' also indicates the SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE must receive a report within 180 days of the date of enactment of the Act on unidentified aerial phenomena(UAP) from the Department of National Intelligence.

It is unclear why the chair of the powerful SELECT SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE, Senator Marco Rubio, decided to inject a segment on UAP into the generally staid annual FISCAL YEAR ACT. However, in an interview, Senator Rubio made his feelings more than clear, “We have things flying over our military bases and places where we are conducting military exercises - we don’t know what it is and it isn’t ours…” [Listen to his interview below**]

The background on this legislative move by Chairman Rubio demonstrates he is not the first to seek answers about the matter of UFOs.
  • Former Senate Majority Harry Reid along with two other senior Senators raised the same issue. Reid and his colleagues Senators Inouye and Stevens were successful in obtaining $22 million of Senate funding for a UFO investigation program within the Pentagon.
  • The program designated AATIPAdvanced Aerial Threat Investigation Program - ran from 2007 to 2012. 
  • The program was headed by Luis Elizondoa former intelligence officer.
  • It is worthy of note that Rubio would insert into the 2021 AUTHORIZATION ACT language identical to the 2007 Pentagon program’s term - "ADVANCED AERIAL THREATS".
According to UAP Washington lobbyist, Steven Bassett* Executive Director of the Paradigm Research Group- this move by the SELECT SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE is an effort to establish Congressional or Senate hearings on the UAP issue. Bassett predicts there will be government hearings - perhaps as early as the spring of 2021. In his comments Bassett re-asserts what former Presidents Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and former White House Chief of Staff John Podesta were up to when their respective administrations tried to delve into the UAP matter as far back as 1981 and into the mid 1990’s.

As stated in the legislation, Rubio warns, “...the Committee finds that the information sharing and coordination across the Intelligence Community has been inconsistent, and this issue has lacked attention from senior leaders.” 

It appears Senator Rubio and his Co-Chair Senator Mark Warner want answers. Will the Department of National Intelligence comply, or will Rubio's Committee have to find another way to pry loose what US intelligence and military agencies are guarding so closely about UAP? 

ZNN contends that - implicit in this Senate Committee’s legislative directive to the DNI - Senator Rubio appears to be tactfully and strategically engaging the hypothesis that these craft known as unidentified aerial phenomenon may not originate from the planet Earth. If these tactics work for Senator Rubio, the Extraterrestrial hypothesis may well have entered a new era in US politics.

A Huge Piece of UFO History


What does history tell us about the future of UFO Disclosure? 

Media Alert

Toronto [ZNN] In the early years of how UFOs were covered and discussed among the massive community of researchers and pundits, UFO UPDATES,  an email open forum moderated by the late Errol Bruce-Knapp, served as the bell-weather of information. Quite frankly there was little else that people could depend on to see or develop a personal or global perspective on the UFO matter. 

Errol Bruce-Knapp
Looking at the UFO UPDATES ARCHIVE and Errol's radio program STRANGE DAYS... INDEED tells us the UFO issue was viewed very differently from how it is engaged today. So much has changed... indeed. If one reviews the email contributions on UFO UPDATES one can clearly see how attitudinal perspectives have altered.

For the uninitiated, it may make little difference; but for the more UFO savvy - things have moved significantly. This alteration in attitudes and interpretation of facts reveals an important vector in how the public perception of UFOs has become imbedded in popular culture and - the media. 
  • How and why has this become so differentiated from how the UFO matter has evolved today? 
  • What might have been the perspectives of the UFO UPDATES forum contributors been then if the US NAVY had revealed the TICK-TACK videos? 
  • Did UFO observers and pundits wear blinders back then or were they simply dealing with the facts and opinions they had at the time?
We'll never really know.

One thing is very clear - UFO UPDATES - a truly Canadian phenomenon - in its primal vision and provision of opportunities for UFO pundits to express their renderings on the UFO matter - the future and our present perspectives are in pretty good shape because of one man... Errol Bruce-Knapp. 

Have a look at some of what UFO UPDATES was all about then and feel free to contrast it with how we perceive it all today.

International correspondent clarifies the UFO issue.

Media Alert

Toronto [ZNN] A current wave of clarity has been established by a filmmaker and an international intellectual about UFOs or UAP (unidentified aerial phenomenon). 

This wave or perhaps more accurately described as a stream of consciousness - signals that this category of cutting-edge journalistic influence is attempting to awaken humanity. 

This stream of consciousness by an enlightened new generation of journalists will be crucial to the engagement of a new strata of understanding among millennials as well as a traditional generation who have always considered the UAP issue interesting but of little consequence in their lives. This is about to change.

During the last four weeks, filmmaker James Fox has stunned the UAP community and the general public with his blockbuster film THE PHENOMENON - a must watch.


Now, international commentator Come Carpentier de Gourdon has ignited a parallel and powerful discourse about the state of UAP events: new and surprising government initiatives that appear to be laying the ground work for some form of government acknowledgement or disclosure.

This literary corollary to the Fox film by Carpentier de Gourdon comes to the fore just in time by adding impetus to the thesis put forward by James Fox in his film about why governments are becoming more openly attentive to the UAP matter and whether or not craft of off-world origin and their alleged occupants have anything whatsoever to do with or interest in the human family. 

Answers to these questions may soon become more apparent - so stay tuned for the next wave of consciousness because the consequences of an ET presence will have an other-worldly provenance we have yet to fathom.

Dr. John Mack - In Memoriam

The Man and the Legacy Remembered 


For those familiar with the late Harvard psychiatrist and alien abduction author Dr. John E. Mack it is not difficult to reach back in our memories to replay one of his lectures or interviews. His clarity of mind and wealth of knowledge verge on the unimaginable and visionary at the same time.   

John had a way of making the phenomenon of 'alien abductions’ penetrate the realm of the real without imposing cultural bias or psychiatric restrictions on a new frontier of knowing. He made it make sense. Both he and his good friend Budd Hopkins were pioneers on this new frontier.

For those not familiar with Dr. Mack's work - what follows may enlighten or disturb - either way it may prove instructive to the open mind.

John Mack was killed in a horrifying car accident as he walked along a road late at night in England after a lecture he had given. The details of this 'accident' were crushing and after16 years - still too raw in my mind to write about - so I'll let that be for now and re-live the tears I shed late that night at another time. 

The tragic news was sent to me by a close mutual friend... it said: 'Victor - he's gone..." and it went on from there - describing the sorrow and the deplorable needlessness of his death.

My history with John has many adventures and are unspoiled in reminiscence. 

In 1996 I visited John in his Harvard office over three memorable days to discuss the abduction phenomenon. I also had the honour and pleasure of interviewing John on the popular Toronto UFO radio program STRANGE DAYS... INDEED. 

Still - after 16 years since his passing, Dr. Mack's understandings of this bizarre phenomenon live on. These understandings - to this day - form the foundation around which current global researchers and writers present the 'alien abduction' phenomenon. John redefined the term ‘abductee’ - removing the negative connotation with a more heuristic term, ‘Experiencer’. In doing so Dr. Mack opened new doors.

  • Is the ET experience part of the material world or does it originate from a different place?
  • How do Experiencers describe the encounters they have; their bodies and vibrational energy and moving through solid objects?
  • Why has the psychiatric community not embraced this phenomenon?   

Captured here for you are Dr. Mack's responses to these and other questions in this nine minute segment of the hour long interview I did with Dr. Mack on Strange Days... Indeed.

Former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada - 15th Anniversary of his UFO revelations

For Immediate Distribution
The Honourable Paul Hellyer marks 2005 University of Toronto UFO Symposium Disclosures

Toronto [ZNN] Friday September 25, 2020 marks the coming forward of The Honourable Paul T. Hellyer with his historic announcement at the 2005 Toronto Canada SYMPOSIUM ON UFO DISCLOSURE AND PLANETARY DIRECTIONS. Mr. Hellyer stated:

"UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head." 

The Hon. Paul T. Hellyer
"No other North American elected official of cabinet rank has  challenged the government of the day to acknowledge and disclose the truth behind the biggest secret of the last 70 years." ZNN News Director Victor Viggiani

Hellyer - who also served as Canada's Minister of National Defence - made his ground-breaking statement at the University of Toronto's Convocation Hall in 2005.

Hellyer's notoriety as a politician - one who swam against the current for most of his career - brought him to the brink of becoming Prime Minister of Canada - before losing the nomination for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada to Pierre Elliott Trudeau in 1968.

Little did he know then another pathway in history lay ahead of him. Hellyer's thirty-minute address stunned just over 500 attendees and the media at the UofT Convocation Hall venue as he revealed breath-taking aspects of the UFO phenomenon. 

Hellyer's assertions attracted the attention of mainstream media in the US, Canada and abroad. The news of his disclosures - those captured by media notables such as then MSNBC anchor Tucker Carlson (2005), CBC Radio's HERE AND NOW with then host Matt Galloway, the Toronto Star's reporter Joanna Smith and numerous UK newspapers - still resonate to this day. 

Hellyer's 2013 appearance and spirited testimony at the Washington National Press Club CITIZEN HEARING ON DISCLOSURE, sponsored by the Paradigm Research Group, brought on-lookers to their feet. The 2013 Washington DC Bureau Chief, Mitch Potter interviewed this reporter - producing this front page story in the Toronto Star.

Mr. Hellyer's dedication to the truth and the courage behind his perseverance catapulted this 97 year-old Canadian statesman to become one of Canada's most internationally renowned figures. 

Hellyer's books, his cross Canada tour in 2015, innumerable radio interviews and lectures world-wide have etched his name in history as a UFO Disclosure advocate of both integrity and grit.



Now, 15 years later - two highly significant UFO disclosure events have occurred. First - the US Select Senate Committee on Intelligence has made bold legislative moves to force American Intelligence Agencies and the US Defence Department to open their data banks on UFOs. Second - the current political context of UFO disclosure has been radically altered - the US Navy has now openly and publicly stated for the first time ever their videos of - UFOs are real. 

Where have we heard those words before?



- Mr. Hellyer will appear on THE CONSPIRACY SHOW with host RICHARD SYRETT and guest-host Victor Viggiani - News Director at the ZlandCommunications NewsNetwork - Sunday September 27 at 11pm Eastern on AM740 Zoomer Radio and live on the internet. See: ZOOMER RADIO LISTEN LIVE this coming Sunday.

- Mr. Hellyer's newest book - LIBERATED! The Economics of Hope is due for publication this month.
