The Files of The Disclosure Agency Presents

Media Alert

Peter Robbins
Toronto [ZNN] Few researchers have enjoyed recognition that includes a personal and intimate experience involving a sighting of a UFO, the abduction of a family member and the camaraderie of a world renowned pioneer in the research of the phenomenon known as 'alien abductions'.

Writer, lecturer and UFO investigator Peter Robbins has distinguished himself in all of these categories.

ZlandCommunications News Director Victor Viggiani caught up with Peter Robbins in his home in New York state. The interview began as most do in the world of UFOs - however Peter soon began to reveal emotional and heartfelt aspects of his own UFO sighting, that of his sister and her subsequent alien abduction experience. These events shook his world and redefined his reality.

It did not stop there.

Peter and Budd
In this most impassioned conversation with researcher Peter Robbins - he goes on to describe how his world-view would be altered by a new-found friend and confidant - Budd Hopkins

Listen - to Peter's accounts of his sister's unworldly experience - and his unique working relationship with Budd Hopkins. Hopkins - who passed away in 2011 would go on to revolutionize the global understanding of how encounters by thousands, if not millions of human beings would expand the consciousness of humanity in the revolutionary experience of human contact with Extraterrestrials.

Former senator majority leader and architect of Pentagon UFO program says aliens are real

Could the US Navy revelations and Pentagon UFO videos be a smoke-screen for something even bigger?

Media Alert - UPDATED MAY 9 Noon ET
Toronto [ZNN] It didn’t take long for Senator Harry Reid to again comment on the Pentagon’s official acknowledgement that videos of UFOs are real. The Senator appears to have specific insights into the reasons behind the US Navy and Pentagon's recent revelations about UFOs.

Reid reiterated that other political figures need to come forward to publicly assess what the US Navy revealed in December of 2019 - facts that demonstrate craft of unknown origin are regularly entering US air space and there is little US jets can do about it.

Although the $22 million allocation of funds to the Pentagon spearheaded by Reid to operate a UFO investigation from 2007 to 2012 purportedly ran its course, more details appear to be emerging as a result of the investigations.
There may however be something else happening here that does not readily acquaint itself with the mind's eye.
The pattern of information-releases about UFOs that we have witnessed since December 2017 bears a striking resemblance to what is often referred to as a “limited hang-out”. The CIA is also well-known for this technique of mis-direction. 
According to former special assistant to the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Victor Marchetti, ‘limited hangout’ is a form of admission resorted to when a phoney cover-story can no longer be relied upon to misinform the public. 
Here is how it works.

The manipulators admit to or even volunteer some form of the truth while managing to withhold key overwhelming or damaging facts. The results - the public and even the press are intrigued by the new information but never think to pursue the matter in more depth.  

Might the Pentagon videos and the revelations by the US Navy be intended to distract or mis-direct a target audience away from even more sensitive UFO encounters using the 'limited hangout' technique?

Might this form of manipulation be a plausible explanation as to why so little media attention is being paid to what otherwise would be a bombshell revelation by the planet's most powerful military agency about UFOs interacting with highly sophisticated but helpless US aircraft?
A Smoke Screen is Required 
The Pentagon has never commented on nor has it ever publicly hinted at UFO incursions over US nuclear installations.

There is absolutely no reason to believe that the Pentagon is unaware of these incursions. In one such incident in 1967 at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana, a storage site for nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), Air Force Capt. Robert Salas Ret. testified in a notarized affidavit that several missiles became inoperative at the same time base security guards reported seeing a glowing red object, about 30 feet in diameter, hovering over the facility. Salas commanded ICBMs as a launch officer. The Malmstrom incident was only one of many incidents involving UFOs and nuclear assets in the United States. Others have occurred in the UK and Russia.
As authentic as they may in fact are, might the US Navy UFO videos, pilot testimony, radar technician reports, Navy policy changes to how pilots report UFOs and the recent Pentagon acknowledgement be a 'side-show' of sorts? 
The intention? To shield other, more highly sensitive intelligence that concedes the US military no longer has control of the airspace over its massive nuclear arsenal due to UFO incursions? It is not hyperbole to suggest that an admission of this critical classification by the Pentagon or the White House would reek havoc in the US and among NATO allies. 
ZlandCommunications is not yet prepared to predict an admission of this thesis by the Pentagon, however given:  
a) The constant three-year drizzling of information about UFOs and military jets since December 2017, combined with, 
b) The propensity of the US military and its associated intelligence arms to misdirect, misrepresent or otherwise lie - makes the use of the 'limited-hangout' propaganda technique a real possibility - one not entirely out of the question; and, 
c) A misinterpretation of missile-shutdowns 
by military officials as threat rather than a warning from advanced off-world civilizations designed to dissuade global militarists against the use nuclear armaments.
Rationale for a Limited-Hangout Scenario
Admissions by the US Navy and the Pentagon of suspicious videos of UFOs over US Pacific coastal waters would raise comparatively little interest compared to an official admission by the Pentagon that UFOs are tampering with the massive US arsenal of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs). 
The robust nature of the US Navy and Pentagon revelations about UFOs should have been a bombshell in national and international media - but it was not. The news continues but with only whispers of coverage echoing among select mainstream outlets and the tightly knit global UFO research community. All of the actors, key players and agencies have been carefully assigned their roles. With rehearsals staged over 60 years, it really was not that difficult to do this - all one take. Question is who got taken?
Has the US Department of Defence cleverly covered its tracks and future revelations about nukes and UFOs by manufacturing an alternative bait and switch routine without anyone figuring it out... until now?

So, does Senator Reid know more about what is going on than what has already been revealed and why is he reiterating his UFO/ET mantra for the second or third time?

As strange as it may seem in this age when sophisticated journalists - whose job it is to get at the truth - often fall prey to this form of spinning re-manufactured lies or truth. As one pundit once suggested - "It's hard to tell if they're tightening the screws or loosening them..."

Pentagon officially releases three UFO videos taken by US Navy pilots

UPDATE - April 29

“The previously leaked videos were declassified to ‘clear up any misconceptions’ on whether they were real.” 
[US Pentagon]


Toronto [ZNNZlandCommunications has learned the Pentagon has officially released three videos of UFOs taken by Navy pilots. 

The Global UFO research community and world-wide mainstream media are reeling after this official release by the Pentagon. 

At this point over 35 mainstream media outlets have covered the Pentagon’s announcement. 

This broad-based coverage by virtually every US media outlet demands a clear and unambiguous statement by the White House and the US Air Force - both of whom are conspicuous by their current silence.

It now appears UFOs are now officially official. Analysis continues to pour in. Stay tuned for further developments.

Journalists and news outlets are invited to contact ZNN News Director Victor Viggiani for interviews and comments by using the contact details below.
The three videos show what the pilots saw during training flights in 2004 and 2015. Two of the videos were published by the New York Times in 2017. The other video was released by the To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science group, a media and private science organization.” [The Guardian]

The Files of the Disclosure Agency presents -
An Interview with Roswell expert Donald R. Schmitt

Media Alert

Toronto [ZNN] The crash of a flying saucer near Roswell New Mexico in July of 1947 began an era of controversy that has lasted for over 70 years. Lies and government complicity have spun a web of conspiracy unparalleled in modern times.

A staggering irony still haunts those in the military who were forced by their superiors to spin their own web of deceit and falsehoods. The irony? The US military’s first press release was actually the truththey announced to the world that they had captured a flying saucer outside of Roswell New Mexico.

From there the truth faded quickly - there was no flying saucer - just a weather balloon, at least that is what US military communications personnel in charge of reporting on the crash were directed by their superiors to tell the media. 

The military's proclamation in the next day’s newspapers said – it was just a Weather Balloon. Few understood it at the time but, in less than 24 hours, the trajectory of world history changed… forever - all of it based on a false narrative fabricated by the US government. 

The US Air Force then proceeded to wait several decades to brazenly compound their weather balloon false narrative, absurdly suggesting in a 1997 report that 'alien bodies' found at the crash site, "[W]ere actually anthropomorphic test dummies that were carried aloft by U.S. Air Force high altitude balloons for scientific research."  (USAF The Roswell Report - Case Closed) This ludicrous 'report' was immediately dismissed by the UFO research community. 

How then is it possible to strip away the lies, conjecture and misinformation to obtain a journalistically sound and well-researched assessment of what really happened in July of 1947 near Roswell New Mexico? 

Will this review and the on-going work by Don Schmitt and his fellow research partner Tom Carey re-kindle current efforts to advance full disclosure of the ET reality?

To understand how all the pieces of a very complex puzzle fit together, you are invited to listen to ZNN's remarkable conversation with Roswell investigator Don Schmitt. It is replete with dramatic and disquieting information - some of which this reporter has never heard before. The revelations are the result of research that began in 1989.  

Based on the testimony of over 600 witnesses, Mr. Schmitt delivers a professional, journalistically sound and provocative account of the 1947 Roswell Incident - one that ignited what is currently referred to as the extraterrestrial presence now engaging the planet. It is clear Don Schmitt’s passion for his work is unmistakeable.

For those familiar with the story of Roswell, this interview reviews several new insights and re-frames what is already known. For those unfamiliar with the Roswell event... Listen and be prepared to be astonished.

Donald Raymond Schmitt
Donald R. Schmitt is the former co-director of the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies, where he served as Director of Special Investigations for ten years. Among Schmitt’s published works are the bestseller, WITNESS TO ROSWELL, which he co-authored with fellow researcher Tom Carey, and COVER-UP AT ROSWELLHe has led and organized the four official archaeological dig projects at the actual Roswell crash/debris field conducted in 1989, 2002, 2006, and 2013.

Activists ponder the impossible and seek ways to achieve a common purpose.

The activist mind is a rare but contagious commodity. Like the mind-set of great explorers and those who risk and flaunt tradition, activists ignite the possibilities of radical ideas and contrive to make the unthinkable happen. The activist mind seeks what others cannot imagine and acts as few other would dare.

Activists are a primordial breed - instinctive thinkers who not only challenge the status quo but also break its barriers into small bits for easy consumption by the like-minded as well as the indolent. 

The  primary role of the activist is to create conditions in which social discourse about matters and events of critical importance and interest to the global community can be inseminated, born and go on to thrive. 

This brings us to the peculiar but responsive activist who challenges the human family with the proposition embraced by the mind-set that the planet has been and is being engaged by multiple groups of off-world civilizations. 

Please do not fall off into the deep-end of this issue unless you can tread water - because there is no safety in trying to touch bottom - one either dispenses with this issue as nonsensical or one engages it as a thought-experiment closer to reality than one may perceive. 

Pick your referent group and read-on... or drowned in a miasma of disbelief - either option is a risk.

Anyone in any capacity who presses for or creates  conditions that promote opportunities for open public dialogue can be considered an activist and an educator. In this sense, the activist-educator is the essential ingredient - a catalyst if you will - one who frames the facts to create a revised world-view and a compelling pathway towards understanding. 

Evidence of an Extraterrestrial Presence as promoted by the activist unreservedly presents documentation and testimony of the highest order. Most may walk by this evidence as if it were mere window dressing. Some stop and soon realize it is the most profound deposition of facts presented in human history.

Strategies and Tactics

The activist-educator utilizes two modalities.

First, the activist, like the obstreperous and deviant renegade, is the first to signal to the rest of the clan that a radical and marginalized idea is advancing on the horizon.

Like the canary in the coal mine, yes - but in this case - one who sustains herself for future reference. She falls not off her perch but breathes the fresh air of change.

The second modality is quite fascinating. Although the world-view of the activist is at first almost always rejected by the group; the activist perseverates. A crafty and determined unwillingness to cave-in to public and institutional criticism guides the true activist to demonstrate human intuition has a value-equivalency to data derived from science, social mores or our five senses... a quaint strategy that seems to work quite well when attempting to awaken the indolent, government officials, bureaucrats and even one's best friends.

To understand the nature of this modality it is useful to cite the lives of historical activists: Gandhi, Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Malaha Yousafzai and Susan B. Anthony. Each used tactics that resulted in suffering recrimination, incarceration and even death to achieve their activist goals. 

On the other hand, the skeptic or those who adhere to traditional world-views rarely put themselves in jeopardy. They dismiss the activist as libertarian, utopian or simply radical. The skeptic and authoritarians frequently use doubt and uncertainty to bludgeon new ideas with the theory that certain categories of knowledge and information are impossible or worst yet - unthinkable. 

By the use of cynicism, ridicule and personal attacks the authoritarian's refusal to consider radical ideas seeks to impose their will on others - divide rather than unify. The activist mind works differently. Activists ponder the impossible, seek ways to achieve a common purpose to promote unifying discourse and cooperation in order to achieve goals beyond the human frontier of thought. In other words - new concepts, however radical, are good ideas worthy of consideration. The null set of ideas is not an option.

Finally, that skeptics are usually ignored by the activist is considered the true mark of a dedicated activist. The activist does this for several reasons - most important of which is to conserve the psychic energy required to rise above the din and diminutions of personal attacks and the odd bullet they may have to dodge when things get serious. Some activists even go so far as to embrace their critics in the hope - as mentioned earlier - that activism's contagious nature might work a miracle on the intransigent.

The Extraterrestrial Presence

The ubiquitous notion humans are a supreme species is regularly challenged by activists who advocate in favour of the ET reality. 

The late Dr. John E. Mack, former Head of Psychiatry at Harvard University, often stated humans were not the top of the cosmic heap. For an activist like Dr. Mack, this mode of reasoning opened the door to complex issues about the Extraterrestrial presence. 

Generally considered as unthinkable and radical to many - a growing segment of the human family believe radical ideas such as an ET Presence are becoming thoroughly thinkable. 

In the last five decades we have witnessed the initiatives of several political figures who have pondered what appears to be impossible or even a threat to their own political capital. Yet they moved forward to find ways of achieving the impossible - a consensus risk. Yes. But why?

Several examples of this are now a recognized part of a growing trend towards a condemnation of the scepticism and cynicism that has held back progress in making the UFO/ET issue a prominent matter in global geo-politics. 

Although not fully engaged by most political leaders - media coverage - the vanguard of public opinion - has taken on this issue. No other journalistic bookmark reveals this more expressively than the New York Times article of December 2017 on UFOs by Ralph Blumenthal, Helene Cooper and Leslie Kean.  

In it, Blumenthal, Cooper and Kean describe how Senators Harry Reid, Daniel Inouye and Ted Stevens' 2006-2007 initiative made possible an investigation into UFOs. They achieved a $22 million Senate appropriation to the US Pentagon to investigate UFOs. Such an appropriation of millions would have been considered unheard of or even un-American in the past. But it happened.

The fact that three senators, including Congressional Intell-committee member Mark Warner, could be briefed by defence department officials on the UFO matter was also unthinkable at one time. But it happened.

None of these politicians sought political benefit - on the contrary - it’s more likely their interest in the UFO matter and acting upon it could actually hinder their political capital. It didn't and they moved forward to disrupt the old ways of secrecy.

In another example, former US Assistant Deputy Secretary of Defence Chris Mellon‘s decision to come forward in numerous media interviews about the reality of UFOs was not only courageous but an apolitical move that created  decisively open discourse.

In the time leading up to the $22 million Senate appropriation for a UFO investigation and later in 2017, with revelations by US Navy officials about on-going pilot encounters with multiple UFOs - might it now be time for the UFO issue to make its debut during the up-coming US election campaign? 

A big swallow.

Could the UFO matter become part of the democratic process and in turn emerge as the third rail of American politics?  

In a more specific sense - a conversation about how entities within the US military and in the private sector are experimenting with and perhaps already using UFO based propulsion systems of energy could very well engage yet  another category of public debate about re-thinking the use of fossil fuels. The fact that this matter is not yet a major issue during the 2020 campaign is indeed unfortunate.

Using outdated world-views and rhetoric to create dynamic and new strategies for change can never be effective in educating the global community about the most significant event in human history. New ways of thinking are needed to affect global change... regrettably we’re just not there yet. 

But a prominent UFO/ET activist sees it differently.

The 2013 Citizen Hearing on Disclosure - Washington DC

In 2013 The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure took the leap of all activist leaps since 2001. 

Activist Stephen Bassett - Executive Director of the Paradigm Research Group and a  rogue but temperate activist took such a leap. He decided - with some funding from supporters - to rent the Washington DC National Press Club for five days. The Washington DC National Press Club is the revered press locale of such figures as John F. Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower and other esteemed Presidents. 

Basset chose this location to set-up a mock Congressional Hearing featuring former members of Congress and the Senate to explore the UFO/ET question. 

For over 30 hours some 40 witnesses gave testimony. Pilots, lawyers, authors, research experts, Air Traffic Control Senior advisors, a nuclear missile launch commander and a former Canadian Minister of Defence gathered in Washington DC to provide unimpeachable testimony about UFO incursions here on planet Earth. Many consider the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure a benchmark that may play-out in real time soon.

"What kind of person would risk such an occasion almost doomed to failure from the onset? The answer - an ACTIVIST. To this day Mr. Bassett may rue the day he conceived to assemble the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure - but one thing is certain - no observer that ZNN is aware of laments his decision." ZNN spokesperson.

Perhaps with this kind of activist wake-up call - one that brings forward the open acknowledgement of the ET PRESENCE - there is hope that the activist mind still thrives. 

Only the activist mind and the collective will of the human family - ignited by these minds - can make the unthinkable happen.

So - is activism contagious - is it a mode of reasoning that may resurrect humanity? Time will tell and so will the bullets they dodge.

Your comments are invited.

Former UK Ministry of Defence Official on UFOs and Covid19

Files of the Disclosure Agency - 
An interview with Nick Pope
Media Alert

Toronto [ZNN] There is little doubt we are in extraordinary times. The fate of the planet and all we have known and know is in jeopardy.

In this context, has the greatest question ever to face humanity: Are we alone in the universe been subsumed by a pandemic that threatens our very existence? Or, is this a new age of enlightenment in which the human family rises above the pettiness of political and ideological differences to defeat an invisible and vulnerable foe of the mind and body?

Some forward thinking realists might propose that this pandemic experience is a test - a blueprint for humanity to abandon its fear-based modes of reasoning and ultimately accept the audacious reality that Earth is being engaged by off-world civilizations. These questions have never been asked before - perhaps it is now time to ask them.

Our first interview in this series of the Files of the Disclosure Agency is with Nick Pope - pre-eminent author, broadcaster, journalist and former UK Ministry of Defence official in charge of its UFO DESK. Nick takes time with us to address these profound issues... and more. You will be surprised by his take on this matter.

Coming soon on The Files of the Disclosure Agency - watch for our upcoming interviews with author, lecturer and Roswell expert Don Schmitt and investigative writer, author and lecturer Peter Robbins.
