High Strangeness: OMG! Citizen Hearing on Disclosure!

OMG! Citizen Hearing on Disclosure!

Hang on to your hats, everyone: The world is going to change on April 29th, and nothing will ever be the same again!

This really is quite a big deal. For five full days, from April 29th to May 3rd, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., just two blocks from the White House and 12 blocks from the U.S. Congress, the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure will bring together 30 to 40 UFO experts and witnesses from around the globe to testify before a government panel and "seek out the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time."

"What issue is that?" you ask. Why, nothing less than the U.S. Government's decades-long cover up of "an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race." "If the Congress will not do its job," the organizers say, "the people will."

That's a pretty ambitious goal, but this is a pretty big issue, and after getting absolutely nowhere for 66 years, you wouldn't expect to get to the bottom of things in only three or four days, would you? You need five for sure. With minimal rest breaks.

A press release explains that this is a $600,000 production out on by the aptly-named, Bethesda, MD-based Paradigm Research Group, or PRG. Their website explains that PRG is "Dedicated to ending the government imposed truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race." I wish them all the best with that.

I guess the point I'm trying to make here is that this is all they do, so they ought to do it right. And by all appearances, they are pulling out all the stops:
  • The main ballroom of the National Press Club will be configured to resemble a Senate hearing room. There will be press areas, an audience area, witness tables and committee tables.
  • All will conduct themselves in the same manner appropropriate to a Congressional hearing. To the extent possible the protocols for congressional hearings will be followed.  
  • Witnesses will include the top researchers in the world along with government / agency / political persons of rank and station.
Are you picking up on a theme here? PRG is going to an awful lot of trouble and expense to make this event resemble a Congressional hearing. Why? Maybe because the panel before whom the witnesses and experts will be testifying only resembles the United States Congress.

The headline that started it all. Bad move, Air Force.
That's right, all this hoopla is so 30 to 40 UFO experts can "testify" before a panel of former U.S. Congresspersons and Senators. "Former," as in "retired," as in "washed up," as in "no longer in power." You get the picture. Five days of testimony directed at a panel of six people who can't do a damned thing about it. Oh, and this part is almost poetic: the whole thing will be moderated by a former CNN news anchor. "Former," as in... oh, you must it get it by now!

Now, I'm not saying no good will come of this. The event will be seen around the world in many different languages, and it's never a bad thing to get a whole lot of people around the world thinking and talking about UFOs. And there are a quite a few impressive names on the list of witnesses. But at some point that starts to become a negative, too. Take this guy Stanton Friedman, for instance. I've been to one of his presentations, and he's a brilliant, fascinating guy with a strong argument to make. But he's been railing about government disclosure for decades, so is he going to bring anything new to the table? And what about the grandkids of the Air Force major who was the first on the scene at the famed Roswell UFO crash? I'm sure they're great people, but I'm a little foggy on what exactly they can contribute to this conversation besides sweet memories of being bounced on their grandpa's knee.

So, okay, I wish them all well, and to be honest, if there was any way I could be in Washington that week I would be sitting in on every session and hoping for the best. But I find it more than a bit odd that these dedicated truth-seekers believe they can achieve their goals by faking a Congressional hearing.

You are apparently a "debunker" with his head up his own ass. You, quite obviously, have NOTHING to bring to the table. So, shut the fuck up!

Where is DRUDGE when it comes to the most important, eye opening story in the last hundred years?

Has drudge gone and got a chicken liver transplant, and didn't tell anyone?

The all important drudge has lost much luster and credibility with many of my friends, and many truth seekers in this great land that are hungry for the real truth.

I have new found respect for Huffington Post to have the courage to be one of the very few media sources to able to report the news honestly and provide the people in America with some very rare fresh air and sunshine.

Perhaps the rest of the media in America will loose their yellow streak and stop kissing big corporations a** for a little greedy money and shake the dust off.

It was not Major Marcel's grandson at the event. It was his son. According to Jesse Marcel Jr., he actually handled wreckage from the 47' crash. This makes him pretty relevant. With regards to Mr. Friedman, I think you are off the mark. Every preacher of the UFO gospel has his or her own voice. It appears you are starting to develop your own
