There’s been an increasing amount of discussion in the media over the past two years about unidentified flying objects (UFOs).
Congress is now looking into the unexplained phenomena.
And all hell is breaking loose after a top Republican made a bombshell accusation about a UFO coverup by the government.
The office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released a report last week saying that hundreds of alleged UFO sightings were under investigation, with more than 500 reports coming in just since August 31, 2022.
But one Republican in Congress is accusing the government of a cover-up on UFOs and demanding they come clean about it with the American people.
“This thing is a huge cover-up, for whatever reason,” Tim Burchett (R-TN) told NewsNation. “And I just feel like America is ready, we need to know, and to stop with all the shenanigans.”
Burchett brought up the recent footage showing UFOs making maneuvers that are humanly impossible.
“If you were human and make the turns that have been seen in some of this footage, you would literally turn into a ketchup package,” he said. “I mean, you would be gone.”
Burchett then accused the government of hiding the truth about UFOs since the Roswell incident in 1947.
“I think the American public can handle it and they need to release everything,” he said.
Burchett is not the only member of Congress looking for answers about UFOs.
Congress passed the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in December, which is always slammed full of amendments doling out billions of dollars to special-interest projects.
But one amendment was added to the December NDAA requiring the Department of Defense to review historical documents related to an alleged unidentified flying object (UFO) sighting in New Mexico back in 1945.
The review will be led by the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), which was created in July of 2022 to investigate any “unidentified anomalous phenomena that may pose a threat to national security.”
During a recent episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, former UK Ministry of Defense official Nick Pope discussed the alleged “avocado-shaped” craft that crashed almost 80 years ago in New Mexico.
“This has been called the ‘Roswell before Roswell,’” Pope said about the 1945 crash.
Pope explained some of the “many UFO provisions in the new defense bill” to Tucker Carlson.
“The DOD must provide Congress with a list of everything they found out about this specific incident, but all other incidents and programs from January 1, 1945, onwards,” Pope said. “And anyone involved in these programs or with information about it will be released from their secrecy oaths and nondisclosure agreements, and they’ll be able to testify to Congress about this.”
Carlson pointed out to Pope that the alleged sighting in 1945 took place around the same time the United States blew up its first nuclear bomb.
“That seems to be the case,” Pope said, reaffirming Tucker’s suggestion that there is a connection between the detonation and the alleged UFO sighting. “And again, Congress is demanding answers on this,” he added.
“Yeah, we must get to the bottom of this UFO and nuclear connection,” he concluded.
