(QUOTE)

The family whose Groom Mine property overlooking top-secret Area 51 was seized by the Air Force through eminent domain said Monday that independent appraisers have valued the land at between $44 million and $116 million — a far cry from the $333,300 the government has offered.

James Leavitt, attorney for the Sheahan family, said the huge difference surfaced Friday when expert reports were exchanged during discovery in the ongoing land dispute in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.

The case continues to be litigated after the family rejected the Air Force’s $5.2 million “final offer,” prompting the seizure of the Sheahans’ 400 acres in Lincoln County on Sept. 10, 2015.
The Air Force then appraised the land at only $333,300.

In a telephone interview late Monday, Leavitt, of the Kermitt L. Waters firm, said he will argue for the the constitutional right of just compensation for the Sheahan family’s 22 property owners, noting that the law of eminent domain, the taking of private property by government to convert it to public use, requires it.

“If the government wants to take this to trial, then absolutely we’ll take this to court,” he said.

In a news release, family member Joe Sheahan said, “This is a prime example of the federal government overstepping its boundaries and bullying its own people as though the law doesn’t apply to them.”
The Air Force had no immediate comment Monday night.

My ultimate position on UFOs

sagan-00

Like the overwhelming majority of the world’s astronomers and scientists, I do not discount the possibility that we are not alone in the universe. Most likely we are not alone, even though we still have no definite, scientific evidence for it……so far.
(I am talking about already fully developed, sentient intelligent life……not just micro-organisms).

I was a director of the Civilian Intelligence Network, a loosely-knit citizens’ watchdog group on government accountability and network of researchers, investigators and intelligence gatherers whose primary focus was on the government’s so-called Black Budget Programs at locations such as the operating base at Groom Lake, Nevada (Area 51).

The Civilian Intelligence Network was established in 1990.

It is now a defunct group.
I now support the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) which is the nation’s largest and most well-funded citizens’ watchdog group on government accountability.

I have researched the UFO phenomenon since around 1961.

In 1990 I organized a network called the Civilian Intelligence Network and began to conduct a thorough research on Area 51 in Nevada.

I have also investigated some widespread claims about the existence of Dulce underground base in New Mexico, and have spoken in many conferences nationwide, especially in the early 1990’s.

In 1995 I was invited by a radio talk show host, Art Bell, to appear on his program called “Dreamland”. During my two-hour appearance, I brought out a theme, which was my belief then that the government already had enough technologies to simulate a fake “extraterrestrial” invasion or threat scenario in order to create a forced global unity in the future, if necessary.
That was in 1995.

My present research is on why a segment of the population keeps holding on to their beliefs in “UFOs” (as physical alien spacecraft from outer space, piloted or maneuvered by physical alien entities), despite the apparent lack of globally accepted physical, irrefutable scientific (empirical) evidence.

My focus is also on the study of how a segment of the population’s “beliefs in UFOs” have been manipulated (and in some cases, even created) and taken advantage of by the U.S. intelligence community and by the military in counter intelligence operations, even though they themselves may have given the impression of having been perplexed by this enigmatic phenomenon which they cannot explain and thus will not disclose to the public.

I fully support the organization Aerial Phenomena Investigations Team (based in Washington, D.C.) which stated:

“The serious study of UFOs has been suspended for decades.
The entire field of UFOs has become a toxic swamp of pseudoscience, puerile pranks, sophisticated hoaxes, conspiracy mongering, shoddy and often unethical research, new age claptrap, cheap entertainment and true belief.

Although we agree with the mainstream scientific consensus that the evidence for alien visitation is not persuasive, we think there are hints that something unknown may be going on, although judging whether or not that unknown is extraterrestrial is premature at best.”

(QUOTE)

When laser-equipped fighter jets hit the skies in the 2020s, they’ll include a lot of “Made in New Mexico” technology.

The Air Force Research Laboratory at Kirtland Air Force Base is overseeing the government’s new fighter jet demonstration project known as SHiELD, or Self-Protect High Energy Laser Demonstrator.

The program aims to place small-scale laser pod defense systems on older military aircraft, with the first system demonstration scheduled for 2021.

To build it, the Air Force lab awarded an initial $39 million contract in late August to Northrop Grumman to create a new laser beam control system.

Two more contracts will follow in the coming months, one for a laser pod that contains the system’s power, thermal management, battery and cooling technology, and another to develop the laser itself, said SHiELD program manager Richard Bagnell.

Northrop will manage the beam control research and development at a division in Redondo Beach, Calif., and at the AFRL’s directed-energy directorate in Albuquerque.

Updated information on the planned Air Force’s big land grab of Alamo Road and the surrounding Desert National Wildlife Refuge (i.e., a large portion of land southeast of Area 51). There will be a public meeting on October 20 in North Las Vegas.

by Henry Bream, LAS VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL – – October 10, 2016:
http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/water-environment/questions-abound-air-force-s-bid-more-desert-national-wildlife-refuge-land

(QUOTE):

With public meetings set to start this week, officials at Desert National Wildlife Refuge say they still don’t fully understand the Air Force’s plan to turn the heart of their preserve into a training area.

Refuge manager Amy Sprunger and her boss, Christy Smith, worry that the proposal will disrupt bighorn sheep and other wildlife in the area and cut off public access to some of the most popular backcountry destinations. But they said it’s hard for them to evaluate the plan because there is so much uncertainty about it.

“We really don’t know. It’s uncomfortable,” Sprunger said.
“We’re concerned,” Smith added. “We’re just really concerned.”

In late August, the Defense Department unveiled plans to add 301,507 acres to the Nevada Test and Training Range near Indian Springs, a restricted military proving ground that already covers more than 2.9 million acres in Clark, Lincoln and Nye counties.
Roughly 278,000 acres of the range expansion would be carved from the federal wildlife refuge 30 miles northwest of Las Vegas, which has seen about half its area come under military control since World War II.

The proposed action also could renew — perhaps indefinitely — the military’s hold on land previously withdrawn from public use for the test range, an annexation currently set to expire in 2021.
Refuge could lose land to Air Force expansion.

Air Force officials will hold five scoping meetings this month — Wednesday in Beatty; Thursday in Tonopah; Oct. 18 in Caliente; Oct. 19 in Alamo; and Oct. 20 in North Las Vegas — to gather public input on the plan. Congress will have final say over the range expansion, but no vote is expected until 2018 or later.

ET Enigma – – “High Strangeness” or “Sufficiently Advanced Technology”

hynek_lg

(the late Dr. J. Allen Hynek, 1910 – 1986)

by Trevor Wozny, the Angry Ufologist

(QUOTE)

In UFOlogy there exists a battle of ideologies.
Two camps as-it-were.
They are not divided by race, religion, color, politics, or sexual orientation.
Nothing as grand as those examples but a modest distinction of sourcing.
One side firmly believes that all UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon)/UFO cases are examples of spacecraft from some far off inquisitive planet, i.e., advanced alien technology is what we are seeing.

The other side has a wider view of what is possible in our believed Multiverse over the other.
They believe that the UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon)/UFO enigma has several different sources.

Interdimensional and possibly Intra-Universal origins are not off the table.

It comes down to either if you believe that all UAP/UFO’s are nuts and bolts spaceships or that UAP/UFO’s origins come from far more bizarre places than 46 billion light years of real estate can accommodate.

The major reason for this divide is what has become to be known as “high strangeness”.
The more one contemplates and studies the UFO phenomenon, the more paradoxical it becomes.
The term “high strangeness” can be attributed to Dr. J. Allen Hynek who addressed the United Nations on the subject of UFOs on October 27th, 1978:

“Mr. Chairman, there exists today a world-wide phenomenon. Indeed if it were not world-wide I should not be addressing you and these representatives from many parts of the world.
There exists a global phenomenon the scope and extent of which is not generally recognized.
It is a phenomenon so strange and foreign to our daily terrestrial mode of thought that it is frequently met by ridicule and derision by persons and organizations unacquainted with the facts.
I refer, of course, to the phenomenon of UFOs – Unidentified Flying Objects – which I should like to define here simply as “any aerial or surface sighting, or instrumental recording (radar, images, etc) which remains unexplained by conventional methods even after competent examination by qualified persons.”

url

Lifting J. Allen Hynek’s definition from his book, “The Ufo Experience”:

“The Strangeness Rating is, to express it loosely, a measure of how ‘oddball’ a report is within its particular broad classification.
More precisely, it can be taken as a measure of the number of information bits the report contains, each of which is difficult to explain in common sense terms”
.

Especially puzzling are the reported strange alleged UFO encounters of various kinds by people from diverse occupations and educational levels from all corners of the world, which appear to defy logical explanation.

The phenomena consist of reports of strange flying physical craft that demonstrate an ability to suddenly appear and disappear, change shape, accelerate at a tremendous speed, and to merge and split apart.

Such reported incidents suggest that the UFO phenomenon’s maneuverability may defy laws of gravity and inertia, which seem illogical given our current understanding of scientific principles and physical laws.

Additionally, among a group of people, some may see a UFO while others don’t, some report gaining psychic ability after a UFO encounter, and some believe to have telepathic communications with the UFO occupants, among other incidents characterized as incidents of “high strangeness.”

While bizarre UFO incidents may lend hints to their possible nature or origin, a number of UFO theories have been proposed which include the extraterrestrial, extradimensional, atmospheric phenomenon, paranormal manifestations, advanced secret technology, a manifestation of a psycho-cultural phenomenon, and time travel to explain the nature and origin of this perplexing phenomenon.

I believe the high-strangeness aspect has more to do with how our brains perceive these events than it does with the events themselves.
