There’s something to be said about a week where news about an official US Congress hearing on US Military personnel hiding the existence of aliens gets buried beneath fervent defensive Tweets (or Xeets, our bad!) about Team Barbie vs TeamOppenheimer.
In case you haven’t been able to get out of the fog that has been Barbenheimer week, allow us to fill you in on a shocking and bizarre update on aliens and UFOs. It turns out, they exist and the US military might have been in possession of several alien spacecraft and supposed “nonhuman biologics” retrieved from the aforementioned crashed spacecrafts!
US lawmakers held a remarkable hearing on Wednesday where they invited former military members to share their first-hand accounts of encounters with unexplained anomalous phenomena (UAP). Reportedly, the hearing aimed to explore what the government knew about the UAP and if there were any implications for national security or need for more transparency.
Key witness David Grusch, who had been in charge of investigating UAP within a US Department of Defence agency until a few months ago, claimed that the US Government had “intact and partially intact alien vehicles”. He also alleged that information on UAP was being illegally withheld from Congress.
Needless to say, the Pentagon has denied the allegations. In a statement, US Defense Department spokeswoman Sue Gough said investigators have not discovered “any verifiable information to substantiate claims that any programs regarding the possession or reverse-engineering of extraterrestrial materials have existed in the past or exist currently.“
Notable revelations from the UAP Congress hearings
If you’ve been on the Internet for a while, claims of UFO sightings and unexplained phenomena, like the strange monoliths showing up in different locations around the world, are not really surprising. But this is the first time that an official Congress hearing has been held and former US Defense personnel have stepped forward to blow the whistle on a supposed cover-up.
Aside from Grusch, other military members also came forward as witnesses. Retired Navy commander David Fravor claimed that he chased a UFO while flying over the ocean in 2004.
Ryan Graves, a former Navy pilot, claimed that he encountered dark grey or black cubes inside a clear sphere during his flights.
Why are the hearings on UFOs important?
Over the years, it has been made abundantly clear from scientists‘ and astronomers’ testimonies that there is no substance to these claims of extraterrestrial invasion on Earth. Pentagon has also been adamantly denying the existence of alien technology on the planet. And with the mounting troubles on Earthlings from issues like the climate crisis, resign cost of living, racial intolerance, and prosecution of sexual and religious minorities, supposed UFO sightings are not very high up on the list of problems each of us individually is going through each day.

So why are a bunch of US senators spending their time listening to eyewitness accounts about UAPs? Because the issue highlights the need for transparency between US government agencies and a need for an updated reporting system as there is no existing protocol for UAP sightings. Graves recounted that these are not rare or isolated incidences and there have been instances where an unknown object has flown between two F-18s and came within 50ft of the aircraft but there hasn’t been any official acknowledgement or reporting mechanism to record that.
A bipartisan group of senators, led by majority leader Chuck Schumer, introduced an amendment to the defence spending bill, aiming to reveal government records on UAP through a review board with a presumption of immediate disclosure.
What do you think of the eyewitness’ claims?
