THEY'RE HEERE (4-Star NYPost Review Praises Peter Jennings for Exposing Govít UFO Coverup)
NY Post ^ | February 23, 2005 | LINDA STASI

Posted on 02/23/2005 7:11:28 AM PST by dead

WHY would a serious journalist like Peter Jennings tackle a silly subject like UFOs? Maybe it's because 40 million Americans can't be wrong. It turns out that 40 million of us have claimed to have seen UFOs, while half — yes, half — of all Americans believe in their existence… < snip >

So, why, if millions of people have seen UFOs, are the eyewitnesses immediately reduced to the level of raving loonies (from "lunar")? Interestingly enough, that is the legacy of another successful government PR campaign…< snip >

The feds thought they could keep a lid on UFO sightings and keep a budding worldwide panic under control by making witnesses look crazy. Yes, it seems you could fool all of the people all of the time… < snip >

Good for Jennings for reaching for the stars!

Linda Stasi is the NY Post's liberal television reviewer.

She probably always assumed that UFOs were not real and people who thought they were real were nuts. But then Peter Jennings told her otherwise, so now she knows better.

Aliens will never control the minds of earth's liberals, because network television won't share power.

So this is supposed to be an expose showing that UFOs are actually interstellar craft?

What would we do without Peter Jennings? [/sarcasm]

Just damn.

If you want on the list, FReepmail me. This IS a high-volume PING list...

More death of the MSM.

BatBoy on Dan Rather is next.

Actually, these type of "reports" are probably a step up for network news.

Art Bell to replace Rather.

And some will.

In all fairness to Jennings, he likely has had documents from the 70s faxed to him that strongly indicate the existence of UFOs.

There was UFO stuff on the history channel all weekend.

There are UFO's. Unidentified Flying Objects. Everything you see in the sky that you do not know what it is is, by definition "unidentified".

The question is, are they our's, china's, russia or alien in nature.

The SR-71 was flying for 30 years before the government acknowledged it and I am sure, most of the aircraft we see is expermental US or man-made.

I did not see the show so did they prove the aircraft were alien or "off-world" or simply that the government will not tell us what they are building.

Well, that's proof enough for me!

Maybe it's because 40 million Americans can't be wrong.

Sure they can. About 50 million of them voted for Kerry last November, didn't they? Well, OK, 40 million plus 10 million deceased or fake.

The History Channel, Discovery, and TLC tend to go with lots of UFOs and ghosts during sweeps months.

Interestingly, at one time the Government took this stuff fairly seriously, contrary to their public pronouncements. Of course, they also ran experiments to determine if psychics could detect Soviet missile subs, so take that for what you will.

People who believe in UFOs had to vote for Kerry; after all he had an Unidentified Foreign Objectives.

NEWS ALERT: Dateline Chicago:

Geraldo joins Jennings on an expedition beneath streets of Chicago to confirm Al Capone's vault actually contained an invisible Alien spacecraft.

Jennings reports "It is no coincidence that Capone and the constellation Capricorn have 5 letters in common. Even more stunning is that Al Capone's facial scar was nearly identical in appearance to the stars in Orion's Belt. What did Mr Bush know and when did he know it?"

/sarcasm

Well, Ms. Stasi seems convinced. Another woman that was similarly convinced that aliens were here and were controlling our minds used to rant near Columbia University on the corner of 116th St and Broadway.

Her proof was irrefutable: If you didn't agree with her, the aliens had YOU under control already.

From a great episode of the Simpsons when Homer and Ned Flanders go to Las Vegas to allow Flanders to sow some wild oats. Unfortunately, they end up getting married to two Vegas hostesses and start walking home to Springfield and while doing so start to cook up their alibi.


Homer: All right, let's get our stories straight for Marge and
Maude. [the two begin walking down the highway] We were out
buying them fabulous gifts ...
Ned: What's the occasion?
Homer: Because we love them, jackass! Anyhoo, we came out of Wal-
Mart when suddenly, one hundred spaceships ...
Ned: Homer!
Homer: You're right, you're right, fifty spaceships beamed us
aboard. They gang-probed you, while I discovered an
invention that blew their heads up and saved America.
Ned: Uh, do I have to be gang-probed?
[two vultures land on the highway behind them, first looking
at Ned and Homer, then each other]
Homer: Would you rather tell Maude the truth?
Ned: [sighs] What did the aliens look like?
Homer: Well, I only saw them from the back 'cause they were so busy
gang-probing you. Well hello, little birdie! [fade to
black]

I can tell you without hesitation I have seen what could only be called a UFO. Up close. With three other people.

There are people who have argued with me, telling me I did not know what I saw, when I know damned good and well otherwise: The craft about 500 yards away.

Furthermore, it is the height of arrogance to believe we are the only form of intelligent life in the universe.

I know all about the skeptics, like Phillip Klass, who says they don't exist simply because he has never seen one. Bugger him.

It is the height of strawman debate to state that those of us who don’t believe aliens have flown ships through our atmosphere believe that intelligent life doesn’t exist anywhere else in the universe.

I will continue to believe that there are time and space limitations that restrict visitations by any intelligent life that may exist elsewhere in the universe, until shown a single iota of PROOF otherwise.

Your statement that you saw something you couldn’t identify provides proof of very little. It proves only that you typed a statement asserting that you believe you saw something you could not identify. Next time, swipe a bylantium hubcap or something.

I have always thought that it was mathematically impossible that in the ENTIRE universe, we are the only intelligent life.

It is equally mathematically impossible that any other intelligent life has visited our galactically inisgnificant corner of the universe.

The universe is just too big to only contain one planet of intelligent life, just as it is too big to have more than one intelligent species find another one.

UFO PING LIST PING.

Please let Las Vegas Dave and I know if you want on or off the ping list.

I hope to have some running commentary on the program live on this thread:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1348204/posts

Please plan to 'attend' as a live thread during the program, if you are well read, and/or have a serious interest in the topic and are ready to dicsuss it from a fair-minded perspective. Nay sayers will hopefully be thunderously ignored.

I'm not precisely sure of the timing here in the Mountain States. But that's my option--whenever it's shoing here on the local ABC channel. I think I have to get it off the antenna vs off Direct TV.

Blessings,

My real view on the subject is pretty much the same as Personal Responsibility's post right after yours. But I also tend to put the remote down when I get to one of these shows.
