“The day of final UFO revelation is at hand! Glory! The government heroes in the shadows have stepped forward with the good news! All hail! Let us praise these insiders and bow down! Our efforts have not been in vain!”


No kid gloves, no fawning gratitude toward sources.

For far too long, government insiders who offer UFO “revelations” have been given a free pass.

They should be treated like any other sources for breaking stories. “Your information is fascinating, but I have lots of questions about you and your background.”

There is a history of these insiders spreading disinformation or lies mixed with truth. This is how intelligence and propaganda operatives work. For instance, they could present tidbits about actual UFO sightings along with false claims about recovering “alien bodies.” Those latter claims would be part of their covert agenda.

Suppose secret government/corporate programs have been using the stolen work of Tesla and other outlier researchers to achieve advanced propulsion technology? They cover up that fact by spinning tales about alien ET tech. I’m not asserting that’s what happened, but it would illustrate why they would float lies…

Journalism—by which I mean independent journalism—should be miles past the point of asking softball questions and naïvely accepting “breakthrough revelations” from government sources.

In the wake of recent NY Times UFO disclosures from Luis Elizondo, a former intelligence operative who headed up a secret Pentagon program to study UFOs, many questions arise. Not one reporter who has gained access to Elizondo has publicly queried him at length about his suspect background in the intelligence community.

It would be more than interesting to get serious answers from Mr. Elizondo. They would provide a new jumping off point for further investigation.

Vetting a government insider isn’t easy. You ask many questions, you observe how he answers them, you keep pressing and probing and form your best assessment of the person. You don’t just lie down and accept him running you over like steamroller.

Here are questions Mr. Elizondo should respond to:

* Mr. Elizondo, in your extensive high-level work as an intelligence case officer, did you ever plant stories in the press? False stories? If not, let me put it to you this way: if you had seen the value of planting a false story, in order to move a covert operation forward, would you have done it?

* Mr. Elizondo, you resigned from the Pentagon in October. Almost immediately, you began revealing secret UFO information to the public and the press. What about your non-disclosure agreements with the government? You violated them, didn’t you?

* Did you have permission from the government to ignore those agreements? If so, how did you arrange that?

* If not, what has the government told you about your violations?

* It appears the Pentagon wanted you to speak publicly about UFOs. True? If so, why?

* According to Pentagon sources, you took several UFO videos with you when you resigned. You originally obtained these videos, in order to train pilots on how to respond when they encountered UFOs—but then you turned around and used the videos to inform the press and public about the reality of UFOs. Is this true? Has the government communicated with you about this?

* In your interviews, you mention that the government, or one of its sub-contractors, has been studying materials from UFOs. What specific materials? How were they obtained? From captured UFOs? Crashed UFOs? Where are these UFOs now? Did the reporters at the New York Times ask you about this?

* Is it true that scientists have been unable to analyze the composition of “UFO metals?”

* Why, after decades of denial and silence, did the New York Times suddenly use you as a main source for a UFO story? Did the Times have a green light from the Pentagon?

* You state that the secret Pentagon program, under your leadership, studied reports of UFOs and compared the probable technological capability of those vehicles to the technology the US possesses. Did you probe what has been going on at the Lockheed Skunkworks in Palmdale, California? What have you discovered about advanced secret technology at the Skunkworks and other facilities?

* As a “whistleblower,” have you decided to parcel out what you know in small pieces, over time? If so, why?

* How did you move from working as a case officer, running clandestine operations in Latin America, to heading up a secret Pentagon program on UFOs? The shift seems odd, to say the least?

* Surely you understand that, because intelligence operatives are trained to lie and deceive, there are doubts about your veracity now. Your comments?

* Why did the New York Times suddenly break a huge UFO story? Why now? It certainly appears that you, the Times, and the Pentagon are operating in concert, bypassing the usual secrecy, denial, and skepticism. What’s going on?

* Your background includes “Microbiology, Immunology and Parasitology, with research experience in tropical diseases.” Where did you study these subjects? For what purpose?

* You’re now a member of Tom DeLonge’s team at To the Stars Academy. Several members have significant medical backgrounds. Here are quotes from the Academy’s website:

Dr. Norm Kahn’s career with the CIA “culminat[ed] in his development and direction of the Intelligence Community’s Counter-Biological Weapons Program.”

Dr. Paul Rapp “is a Professor of Military and Emergency Medicine at the Uniformed Services University.”

Dr. Garry Nolan “is the Rachford and Carlota A. Harris Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University School of Medicine…He holds a B.S. in genetics from Cornell University, a Ph.D. in genetics from Stanford University.”

Dr. Adele Gilpin, “is a scientist with biomedical academic and research experience as well as an active, licensed, attorney.”

Dr. Colm Kelleher “is a biochemist with a twenty-eight-year research career in cell and molecular biology currently working in senior management in the aerospace sector. He served as Laboratory Director at biotech company, Prosetta Corporation, leading several small molecule drug discovery programs focused on viruses of interest to the United States Department of Defense. He worked for eight years as Deputy Director of the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS), a research organization using forensic science methodology to unravel scientific anomalies. From 2008-2011, he served as Deputy Administrator of a US government funded threat assessment program focused on advanced aerospace technology. Dr. Kelleher has authored more than forty peer reviewed scientific articles in cell and molecular biology, immunology and virology as well as two best-selling books, “Hunt for the Skinwalker” and “Brain Trust”. He holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Dublin, Trinity College.”

* What are all these medical people doing on your team? Are we about to be treated to warnings about “viruses from outer space?” What is the bio-medical component of UFO disclosure? Are you looking for huge government funding for new programs in this area? Is THIS a covert agenda behind your breakout story about UFOs?

* If you were running a UFO disinformation op on the public, what is the most important lie you would float, and why?

* Would you agree that such disinformation ops have been run in the past? Give us an example or two.

* Your Academy has released a statement which claims “there is sufficient credible evidence of UAP [Unidentified Aerial Phenomena] that proves exotic technologies exist that could revolutionize the human experience.” Are some of those technologies already under the control of the Lockheed Skunkworks? One member of your new team is Steve Justice, who “is the recently retired Program Director for Advanced Systems from Lockheed Martin Advanced Development Programs – better known as the ‘Skunk Works’.” He should know the answer to that question. What does Steve have to say? How would you suggest we check his statements?

Mr. Elizondo, I’m asking all these questions, because the mainstream press isn’t.

If you claim we are in a new era of honest Disclosure, that honesty should include you answering these and other inquiries. After all, you’re the prime source of the current story. As such, you should be willing to open up and address doubts.

Or are you banking on naïve public acceptance of your assertions?

If that’s the case, you’re only adding to the decades of obfuscation surrounding the UFO issue.

I’m here, I’m ready, able, and willing to have you lay your cards on the table.

No, I don’t expect you to contact me. But I do air these questions so people can compare them to what reporters will ask you in the months to come.

Which brand of whistleblower are you? The limited-hangout variety, or a no-holds-barred truth teller?

Certainly, you know we are used to hearing from government limited-hangout artists, and the truth tellers are rare, to say the least.

If you want to be recognized as authentic, you’ll have to go the extra mile.

To put it another way, if a career intelligence officer, who has worked with the US Army, the DOD, the National Counterintelligence Executive, the Director of National Intelligence; who has conducted and supervised highly sensitive espionage and terrorism investigations around the world; who has acted as an intelligence case officer running clandestine operations in Latin America and the Middle East—if such a person approached me with secret information about UFOs, I would naturally want do everything I could to vet him.

Well, that person is you. That is your resume.

You should be willing to answer a very large number of pointed and specific queries.

Are you?

    If anyone wants to check out the idea that the Pentagon used Tesla’s ideas on how to make UFOs I can suggest two books by William Lyne:”Space Aliens From The Pentagon” and “Occult Ether Physics”.

  2. simpleworkathomeplan says:

    I have been looking hard at the UFO video and realized something odd. I’m not an expert but the clouds behind the UFO are on an angle, moving fast left to bottom and the UFO is centred within the crop marks steady without any . Maybe someone can comment on how a fighter jet chasing this UFO would need to be oriented in flight to be able to capture this video flawlessly?

  3. From Quebec says:

    Now that Hillary Clinton has been defeated , her promise to get to the bottom of the government secrecy on UFOs has ended. (

    Hum! Think about this. Hillary wanted to get to the bottom of this issue. Is this not scary coming from that wicked witch?

    I smell a rat here.

  4. Westcoaster says:

    Great questions, Jon. Once again you’re “spot-on”.

  5. Not So Free says:

    It seems to me that the whole UFO thing is simply either a way to keep the sheeple from realizing what is going on or it’s the next part of the plan to further crack down on what’s left of our liberty by scaring us half to death about an alien invasion; either physical or by infection by alien DNA.

    • Chris Sarno says:

      There is but one voice on this topic I convey credibility, that being Jaques Vallee, and he wrote a very interesting book about just such marvelous, too good to be true revelations called “Messengers Of Deception,” I would suggest all interested parties obtain a copy and read it, over thirty years old it remains spectacularly relevant and deeply, profoundly insightful! Deep state, an unexpected political fall, Donald Trump, James Clapper, John Brennan and the agencies they headed up, all in complete rebellion against the lawfully elected president of the USA, and more importantly the Americans who elected him, and the NY-Times, hmmm? Elizondo is running an op, a political op(whether he knows it or not)of some type and this story is simply a barb, he’s sinking a barb for the deep state and judging by the behavior of that deep state these last 18 months its not for the general welfare….

  6. Jon Olsen says:

    A good place to look also is Col. Philip Corso’s book The Day After Roswell.”

  7. elliottjab says:

    It’s truly a relief to witness a bit of progress toward ‘correction’ – but what a mess the world has become.

  8. elliottjab says:

    The wrong people still working these programs will literally be the death of many of us. Chemtrails overhead almost daily in W. New Mexico & sadly – lately – at night as well.

    Avoiding the fall out isn’t possible & yeah – it affects everything – everything.

  9. Theodore says:

    Wow! Now that is what I declare is some mighty fine ‘free-range, non-GMO, Organic, Glysophate-free’ reporter-questioning!

  10. Da vid says:

    For heavens sake Russia and USA have had anti gravity flying machines since at least the 1960’s
    I have seen with my own eyes Khrushchev standing in front of one claiming it would be how people would travel across the globe in the future.
    The alien crap is just that crap

  11. NBS says:

    Good old Jon Rappoport….he is intelligent, logical, and a very incisive and insightful thinker. He seems highly ethical and asks excellent penetrating questions here that pretty much answer themselves. His questions gave me a good giggle…they politely and neatly expose how the intel. world operates.
    IMO every “leak” about UFOs and ETs is important to ready the masses for Disclosure whether it’s via the fine archeology and science in “Ancient Aliens” or the latest Hollywood propaganda or supermarket “rag”. We just always need to test for the “fear factor” and discard the fearmongering items as clearly black hat “agenda”. Jon’s point is that we must ferret out the gems (truths) in all leaks and discard the junk.

    Thank you, Jon, for your enLightenment.

    Body Language: Tom Delonge

  13. Jon, I find this sort article pointless.

    “He said”, “they said”. “who cares?”

    “That’s real”, “That’s fake”. “I can’t make up my mind”

    We’re confused.

    If you really truly wanted to do some good here, get to the “nub”, cut the bullshit, this is all you need to do.

    Don’t talk to me about “unidentified flying objects”. I am only interested in discussing identified flying objects. Now, please also show me the expert steps in determining identification and categorisation, for without those simple steps, you are left with “permanently unidentified” objects versus “spurious unidentified” objects versus classifiable (i.e. weather balloon, insect, ball lightening, secret plane) “unidentified” objects.

    I get to the point and cut the bullshit in my latest article….

    “Irrational genetic qualities are rather harder to quantify. For one, do the Draco bloodlines even exist? Rationalist-atheist-materialists will judge all discussions on the subject of Anunaki lineages as nothing short of whimsical superstition even though “irregularities” in the human body undeniably confirm an extra-terrestrial heritage of sorts. The limbic system and cerebral cortex are two obvious highlights. Should we suppose the atheists are wrong and that there is a metaphysical power source which “drives” a living body, then, conceivable, a complete alien could assume a form of unrelated genetic provenance. In the case of an extraordinarily diverse being such as human, might the power source identify with only part of the overall genetic hubris? Might [in odd cases] the power source identify with a Martian-Sirian complex (amplified by the human cerebral cortex) in isolation?

    Typing away on my computer, I drifted off analogically for a moment. What if my equipment “related” to this very discussion? Well, the machine has an essential hard drive, of course. It runs a “Windows 7” operating system, supports a soft screen and pretty much everything else required to aid structural processing functionality. However, upon further contemplation, I decided my ambition and imagination also firmly plays a big part in that operational flow. Numerous pieces of software are never or almost never used by me. Others that use computers, with different needs, concerns, might regularly utilise some of those obsolete programs. The software applications I do open, I select for my purposes, not theirs. Thinking along these lines, about the possibility of how the “power source” concept in relation to the human brain parries with this, I came up with a radical avenue of consideration. Could each “mind” actually select or reject presented genetic modularity (in the same way I accept or reject software packages on my computer)? Might a reptilian “mind” head for the limbic system? Per identical reasoning, an old Atlantean would logically seek solace from the cerebral cortex, right?”


  14. BRF says:

    Nice….and hard nosed. I really don’t know what to make of the whole extraterrestrial meme for exactly the reasons and questions stated in this article. For this reason ET anything is not much of a concern for me. Are the Majick documents just more of the same. Anyway this was a class lesson in how investigative journalism should be approached.

  15. Goddards Journal says:

    Great work! A very-rare skeptical review of the facts. The MSM pieces on this story look far more like infomercials for TTSA than just bad journalism. Ie, they look like effective advertising.

    I’ve posted a critical analysis of the curiously named “Gimbal” video…

  16. Karn says:

    Amazing insight, many thanks sir

    • Phillip Bell says:

      It is looking like the public is being set up for a retraction of the story further discrediting the UFO phenomena. More mis-information from the CIA etc. !

  17. Matthew Barrett says:

    I wonder if this is this the same Luis Elizondo I fired from my Counterintelligence Special Operatiosn team in Korea in 1997? He was fired for lying and being mentally unstable. He claimed that his coworkers/roommates were conspiring against him and trying to carve a swastika on his forehead. Yes, that what he said. Oh, and his father escaped from Cuba and all he had from him was his Rolex watch. Looked as good as every other Rolex I saw in Korea.

  18. Gobemixer says:

    Excellent article Jon. What is most important about Elizando is what he is NOT saying and who he is NOT working with. Where is Dr. Steven Greer? Robert Hastings? Richard Dolan? Stanton Friedman? Where is the mountain of witness testimony about crash retrievals, bodies recovered, nuclear missiles disarmed, Quintonians working with Lockheed-Martin? Eisenhower ET meeting? Luis Elizando is trying to establish a baseline of ignorance upon which all future lies will now be built. Same old song and dance! Enough already… out with the TRUTH!
