Intelligence Officials Say U.S. Has Retrieved Craft of Non-Human Origin
Gillibrand scheduling hearings with UAP whistleblower David Grusch
Congressional investigations into UAPs continue ratcheting up.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is working on scheduling hearings with UAP whistleblower David Grusch, along with the current or former government officials who seem to corroborate some of his claims.

Gillibrand says they’ll be open to the public, if Grusch agrees to allow cameras in.

Last week, the senator announced she secured “full funding for the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) in the Senate Armed Services Committee’s markup of the FY24 National Defense Authorization Act.”

Gillibrand is also pushing a measure in this year’s must-pass National Defense Authorization Act in response to Grusch’s claim the federal government is hiding Special Access Programs (SAPs) from Congress. Her proposal would bar funding for any government program that isn’t directly funded by Congress.

“So if there are SAPs out there that are somehow outside of the normal chain of command and outside the normal appropriations process, they have to divulge that to Congress,” Gillibrand recently told me.
The public hearing would likely be limited as the news interview was. Any new info will have to be behind closed doors that congress can then decide to declassify. Should be interesting in anycase.
Looks like the hearing is July 26th. If any of Grusch's claims come out of this it'll be a doozy.
‘Non-human intelligence’: Schumer proposes stunning new UFO legislation

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), along with a bipartisan group of five other senators, introduced extraordinary legislation on July 13, suggesting that the U.S. government or private contractors may secretly possess recovered UFOs and “biological evidence of living or deceased non-human intelligence.”

According to the legislation, “non-human intelligence” is defined as “any sentient intelligent non-human lifeform, regardless of nature or ultimate origin which may be presumed responsible for” UFOs.

Given the decades-long stigma associated with the UFO topic, such stunning language is not included in bipartisan congressional legislation on a mere whim, let alone proposed by the Senate’s top lawmaker.

According to a statement accompanying the legislation, the 2017 disclosure of a previously unknown government UFO analysis program spurred a broad congressional investigation of unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP), the government’s new terminology for UFOs.

The ongoing investigation “uncovered a vast web of individuals and groups” claiming knowledge of secret UAP-related programs and information.

According to Schumer, “the sheer number and variety” of UFO-related claims “led some in Congress to believe that the [U.S. government] was concealing important information regarding UAPs over broad periods of time.” Moreover, as noted in the legislation, “credible evidence and testimony indicates that Federal Government [UFO] records exist that have not been declassified” as required by law.

To that end, Schumer’s legislation establishes an independent nine-member agency to collect, review and declassify UAP records. If passed in its current form, the law would mandate that all government UFO documents “carry a presumption of immediate [public] disclosure.”

Whistleblower tells Congress the US is concealing 'multi-decade' program that captures UFOs

Grusch said he was asked in 2019 by the head of a government task force on UAPs to identify all highly classified programs relating to the task force’s mission. At the time, Grusch was detailed to the National Reconnaissance Office, the agency that operates U.S. spy satellites.

“I was informed in the course of my official duties of a multi-decade UAP crash retrieval and reverse engineering program to which I was denied access,” he said.

Asked whether the U.S. government had information about extraterrestrial life, Grusch said the U.S. likely has been aware of “non-human” activity since the 1930s.

The Pentagon has denied Grusch’s claims of a coverup. In a statement, 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.” The statement did not address UFOs that are not suspected of being extraterrestrial objects.

Grusch says he became a government whistleblower after his discovery and has faced retaliation for coming forward. He declined to be more specific about the retaliatory tactics, citing an ongoing investigation.

“It was very brutal and very unfortunate, some of the tactics they used to hurt me both professionally and personally,” he said.
Intel refusing them a skif or closed door congressional meeting with Grusch is a bit of a red flag... Hope they get it done at some point.
I'll keep it nice and simple...


"programs that possess retrieved intact and partially intact craft of non-human origin"

Hasn't happened. Sorry to be the bearer of "bad" news.
Long new interview with David Grusch:

Havent watched yet its almost 2 hrs long... But Jesse Michels has usually done a pretty good job in his interviews.

DOE chips in and with news of a dozen or more witnesses backing up what Grusch had to say its gonna be interesting. Hope they make it through the process faster tho it took Grusch ~2 years before he was allowed to talk...

In August, shortly after US government UFO whistleblower David Grusch gave testimony to Congress about crashed spacecraft and alien “biologics,” many observers wondered how much credence to put in his testimony. After all, Grusch is just a single individual. The other two individuals who testified before Congress were former Navy pilots who said they had no evidence of a government program to retrieve and reverse-engineer spacecraft of exotic and apparently nonhuman origin.

But at least 30 other whistleblowers working for the federal government or government contractors have given testimony, or a “protected disclosure,” to the Office of the Intelligence Community Inspector General (IC IG), the Defense Department Inspector General (DOD IG), or to Congress over the last several months, according to multiple sources interviewed by Public.

(NewsNation) — NewsNation has learned Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., and other lawmakers will soon gain access to the classified SCIF room, where they will be able to look at UAP documents.

For decades, the UFO question has been consigned to the realm of speculation, conspiracy theory and science fiction. However, in recent years, more people have started taking on the subject with a more academic approach.

Access to a SCIF for congressmen for both being able to read classified material and interview whistle blowers under NDA is what many are waiting for as the next big step in disclosure.
Finally had that SCIF but looks like they cant publicly say much yet of what was told to them. Some interesting tidbits tho:

"What it appears to be is somebody has discovered something—some advanced form of propulsion or technology—that may actually change all of our lives,"
told reporters upon leaving a classified UAP briefing this morning.

Regulation vs. Eminent Domain: An Alternate Approach to ‘The Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Disclosure Act of 2023’

Earlier this year, legislative power and unexplained phenomena collided when U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Mike Rounds introduced the “Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) Disclosure Act of 2023.”

Contained within this groundbreaking amendment is a provision concerning “eminent domain,” a government legal tool that is often associated with infrastructure and public interest. However, in the context of UAP, a look at the implications, ethical challenges, and legal complexities tied to applying eminent domain to technology of unknown origin and biological evidence of non-human intelligence (NHI) is warranted.

The UAP Act of 2023’s Eminent Domain clause has already sparked some debate amongst those with legal backgrounds that follow the subject. The current drafted legislation would allow the U.S. government to seize NHI technology and biological evidence. While it appears to grant access to undisclosed NHI discoveries for public benefit, the provision’s reach is broad, and will impact not only major defense contractors but also individuals, private corporations, and other entities involved in scientific explorations.

The challenge of appraising NHI technology for fair compensation and its potential disruption to national defense initiatives further complicates the matter.

What follows is an argument that introduces an alternative regulatory approach, which will help to promote compliance and transparency while preserving property rights and national security interests. The regulatory approach to the subject is a proper first step to safeguarding the balance between public interest and individual freedoms.

Q: One quick follow up question. So, you said you think you've all talked to the same people David Grusch did. Are you able to expand on that? What did they share with you all?

DR. KIRKPATRICK: No. For a variety of reasons, so we -- we, obviously, we are obligated to protect all these people's identities for – for all kinds of reasons. What they are reporting, we are documenting. They are reviewing and then revalidating that this is what they want to say. We then research all of that collectively. There is a – there is a, if you think of it as a story arc, there's a number of people that kind of fit into this story arc.

But then there's these little offshoots and variations on themes. We're investigating each and every one of them. We're cross-referencing those. There are some bits of information that are turning out to be things and events that really happened. A lot of it is still under review, and we're putting all that together into our historical report.

Grusch got his clearance renewed today, allowing him to do more skifs, so should be interesting over the next few months what we finally find out of his sources...

The head of the Pentagon’s office that investigates UFOs is stepping down in December, the Department of Defense announced Wednesday.

Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) Director, announced he would be retiring after a 27-year career in the department and the U.S. Intelligence Community.
In an exclusive interview with Politico, Kirkpatrick said he is ready to move on, 18 months after he took the chief position.

“I have accomplished everything I said I was going to do,” he said.

And still circumventing congress apparently... witnesses should not submit directly... let your branch decide what they want to talk about. Kabuki.
Any reports AARO collects through the new secure mechanism, which imposes strict limitations on what can be submitted based on classification of the relevant information, “will be used to inform AARO’s congressionally directed Historical Record Report, due to Congress by June 2024, and its investigations into alleged U.S. government UAP programs.”

Despite the new secure reporting mechanism that was recently made available on AARO’s website, U.S. government personnel are being instructed not to submit sightings of UAP directly through AARO’s website and are instead advised to “follow the process established by your service branch or federal agency to report the information to AARO.”


“And we have extended an invitation at least four or five times now for him to come in over the last eight months or so and [have] been declined,” Kirkpatrick also said.

Responding to a text message from NewsNation Senior National Correspondent Brian Entin, Grusch characterized Kirkpatrick’s statement as inaccurate.

“I have zero emails or calls from them,” Grusch was quoted saying of the alleged invitations from AARO Kirkpatrick referenced in the October 31 media roundtable.

“That is a lie,” Grusch added.
Have to wonder if the renewed security clearance isnt simply gonna hamper Grusch with NDA's again tho... Kind of a rock and a hard place situation. Good that he can testify in a SKIF but his superiors keep preventing him from testifying to any meaningful extent. So seems all we can hope if for more whistleblowers to come forth to back him up at this point even if no new info is allowed to come out.
I guess hes waiting on legal advice or permission to sift through info he has from his NDA's... at this point tho Id more want to see his peers come forth to back up the claims.
