Stealthy spy drone replacing supersonic SR-71 has been secretly flying for 9 years !!

(CLICK TO ENLARGE ABOVE ARTIST’S RENDITION of a similarly designed craft, not necessarily RQ-180 but a Long Range Strike Bomber, similar to the upcoming B-21)

A new report from AVIATION WEEK (October 24, 2019) reports that the US Air Force’s secretive stealth drone – commonly referred to as the RQ-180 – had its first test flight in 2010.

The Northrop Grumman-designed unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) has been in the skies for nine years without apparently ever being photographed.

Developments at Beale Air Force Base and Edwards Air Force Base in California suggest that the UAV is currently engaged in operations, AVIATION WEEK reports.

It likely began flying at the Groom Lake testing facility at Area 51.

Little is known about the design of the aircraft, but it is thought to be modeled after Northrop Grumman’s X-47B drone, with a trailing edge like the B-21 Raider’s.

An in-depth report by Guy Norris in AVIATION WEEK presents new evidence that a secretive, stealthy reconnaissance drone is now in operation with the US Air Force – and has been flying since 2010.

The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), thought to be called the RQ-180, is a large stealth craft used for reconnaissance missions, filling the role left open by the retirement of the SR-71 in 1999.

There are no publicly available images of the UAV and an Air Force spokesperson said they were not aware of the drone.

It is thought to be modeled after Northrop-Grumman’s X-47B, FOREIGN POLICY reported in 2013, and to have a relatively large wingspan and a trailing edge, similar to the B-21 Raider.

The RQ-180 likely began flying at the Groom Lake testing facility at Area 51, where the government’s secretive U-2 testing was carried out in the 1950s.  AVIATION WEEK points to Aug. 3, 2010, as the first flight date for the aircraft.

In 2014, testing appears to have been moved to Edwards Air Force Base in California, with a long-range test flight – possibly to the North Pole – reportedly taking place in early 2017.

Insider reached out to Edwards Air Force Base regarding the test flight, but did not receive a response by press time.

At Beale Air Force Base, also in California, the 427th Reconnaissance Squadron was recently re-commissioned and is now overseeing the operation of the drones, AVIATION WEEK reports.

A spokesperson from Beale AFB told Insider that they were not aware of the squadron.

However, a press release from April on Beale AFB’s web site celebrates the presence of the 427th Squadron at the ribbon cutting of Beale’s new Common Mission Control Center, which will help provide ISR data in “highly contested areas.”

According to AVIATION WEEK, there are now at least seven of these UAVs currently in operation, performing a penetrating intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) role. “R” is the designation for a reconnaissance aircraft and “Q” means it is remotely piloted.

The US Air Force declined to comment to AVIATION WEEK, BUSINESS INSIDER was told by the Air Force press officer on duty that the press desk was not aware of the program.

Here is AVIATION WEEK’s article of October 24, 2019:

USAF Unit Moves Reveal Clues to RQ-180 Ops Debut

It is interesting to mention that several military aviation photographers (including Steve Douglass of Texas) had taken photos of “something” in 2014 over several locations, such as over Kansas and Amarillo, Texas.

The government may not be smart enough to keep secrets – – but smart enough to muddy the waters

We give way too much credit to the government, the government that is quite inefficient, unable to keep secrets for too long and unable to cover up anything for too long.

I stand with Col. John Alexander who stated time and time again that there is no intentional cover-up of the UFO phenomenon by the US government, even though the phenomenon seems to exist.


Because the government itself  (including the military)  has always been perplexed by this phenomenon, being unable to come up with any conclusions, mainly for the reason that this phenomenon in essence seems to be “paranormal”  (or better yet, paraphysical in nature.

It is therefore quite understandable that the government is incapable and unwilling to deal with this phenomenon and rightfully refuses to explain things of this nature.

It will never prematurely make any official announcement that this phenomenon constitutes actual physical ET visitation.

The military, however, seems to have taken advantage of such assumptions  (made by some in the government and the military that UFOs are extraterrestrial)  and continues to develop various weapons systems as a cogent reason to emulate such technologies emanating from the reported phenomenon, taking advantage of its psychological implications.

The bottom line here is that even though the UFO phenomenon may exist  (and we are still uncertain about its true nature),  it has not proven itself to be absolute, tangible evidence that we have been visited by actual physical extraterrestrial biological entities in any actual physical spacecraft of any kind.  The term “UFOs” is misleading since we still do not know if they are really objects or if they are actually flying as we understand flying to be  (as through the use of a propulsion system),  as often mentioned by Dr.  Jacques Vallee.

So, yes, I also agree with the recent statements made by Edward Snowden.

Please read the following extract from CNN report on October 23, 2019:


As a former employee of the CIA and contractor for the National Security Agency, Snowden had access to some of the nation’s most closely held secrets.

And, like any curious mind with access to the CIA’s version of Google might do, he went in search of answers to some of society’s most pressing questions.

As it turns out, the US government is not aware of any intelligent, extraterrestrial life, he says.

“For the record, as far as I could tell, aliens have never contacted Earth, or at least they haven’t contacted US intelligence,” Snowden writes in his recent memoir, “Permanent Record.”

Also, the moon landing did indeed occur.

“In case you were wondering: Yes, man really did land on the moon.  Climate change is real.  Chemtrails are not a thing,” he adds.

The NSA whistleblower addressed the conspiracies again on an episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, released Wednesday, saying “there’s no evidenceof aliens and chemtrails and the like.

“I know, Joe, I know you want there to be aliens,” Snowden joked to Rogan, the podcast’s host.  “I know Neil deGrasse Tyson badly wants there to be aliens.  And there probably are, right?

“But the idea that we’re hiding them — if we are hiding them — I had ridiculous access to the networks of the NSA, the CIA, the military, all these groups.  I couldn’t find anything,” he continued.


As I stated in the beginning the bottom line is that this phenomenon in essence seems to be “paranormal”  (or bettter yet, paraphysical)  in nature and for some folks almost bordering into the area of the supernatural and even involving religious beliefs).

Norio Hayakawa, an unorthodox UFO conspiratologist

Please watch the above 2-minute video or read the following summary:

Norio Hayakawa, born in 1944, is an American activist who lives in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.  He is currently the director of CIVILIAN INTELLIGENCE CENTRAL, a citizens’ oversight committee.  He has appeared as a guest on Coast to Coast AM multiple times, and is most known for his UFOlogy investigations in and around New Mexico and the American Southwest.

Norio Hayakawa is from Yokohama, Japan, but calls New Mexico his home.  He attended Spanish classes at the University of Albuquerque, and graduated in 1970 and also did graduate studies at the University of New Mexico.

During March 1990, Norio Hayakawa led a Nippon TV crew to Dulce, New Mexico, where they interviewed the locals, including the Jicarilla Apache tribal officials, general townsfolk and ranchers, about paranormal activity in the area.

In the past, he has been associated with film maker and activist, Anthony J. Hilder.  Hayakawa and Hilder are responsible for starting the Area 51 People’s Rally in 1998.  The event was formed in protest against what was seen as the secrecy surrounding Area 51.  The second rally was held in 1999.  The rally kicked off on the 5th of June at the Little A’Le’Inn in Rachel, Nevada.  The event began with a press conference.  There were various topics discussed which included the New World and Global Government.

Speakers at the event included Hilder, Ted Gunderson  (former FBI agent-in-charge of Los Angeles)  and Spanish speaking talk show Victor Camacho who came with a truck load of Latino listeners.  The following day a gathering of about 200 people were congregating by the signs of Groom Lake Road.  Demands were being made by Hilder and some others directed at the Area 51 authorities.  Hayakawa opened the 2000 Rally.  The event was covered by KVBC and Channel 3 (NBC) with Hilder speaking to the gathering, with Joerg Arnu fielding the reporter’s questions.


A UFO conspiratologist is not quite the same as a Ufologist or a conspiracy theorist.

A UFO conspiratologist simply studies UFO beliefs and widespread conspiratorial thoughts that seem to be prevalent in today’s UFO culture.

The word conspiratology has not been used widely in the English language.

As far as I am concerned, one of the first persons to use this word years ago was Gary Schultz of Santa Monica, my former colleague.

Here is my definition of conspiratology:

Conspiratology is a comprehensive study on the origins, the role and effects of beliefs in conspiracy theories on society.

It is a general study on why beliefs in conspiracy theories or conspiratorial worldview are deeply ingrained in the psyche of a segment of human society.

(The Newsweek Magazine made a comment a few years ago that beliefs in conspiracy theories have become as American as apple pie.)

There are many conspiracy theorists but conspiratologists seem to be few in number.

It is important to bear in mind that a conspiratologist himself may or may not necessarily subscribe to any conspiracy theory.  However, if he does, he could give an impression to the public that he does not subscribe to any particular conspiracy theory.

When it comes to the topic of military aviation and “Area 51”, these are the researchers I fully trust and hold in high esteem: Joerg Arnu, Peter Merlin and Ron Milione.

Bob Lazar, a total fraud or a reluctant disinformant?

Bob Lazar did tell a nice story.   In fact, a great story.   But the fact is that it simply remains just a story.  It appears to be a cleverly made story at that.

It is more important to ask why he had to tell his dubious and largely unsubstantiated story which seems to be persistently peddled by debonair raconteur, George Knapp, who practically made a secondary career promoting Bob Lazar’s story.

Stanton Friedman said Bob Lazar was a fraud.   Let’s look at what Friedman said:


Incredible claims have been made about Bob Lazar for years.  He supposedly is a physicist with an MS in Physics from MIT and an MS in Electronics from the California Institute of Technology.  He was a “Scientist” for Los Alamos National Laboratory, and obtained a job back-engineering UFOs at a very secret site S-4 near Area 51 in Nevada through noted Physicist, the late Dr. Edward Teller.

Supposedly he figured out how saucers work using Element 115 – – matter/anti-matter, etc.  He was able to steal a small quantity of 115 from the 500 pounds available, but this was stolen back.  There was indeed an announcement in early 2004 about the production of 4 atoms of element 115 by operating a huge European accelerator for many weeks.  It has a very short half life so there is no way to accumulate pounds of it.  He supposedly came forward with his story despite death threats because he thought the public has a right to know.  Videotapes are available with his claims.

It is all BUNK.

Not one shred of evidence has been put forth to support this story:

No diplomas, no résumés, no transcripts, no memberships in professional organizations, no papers, no pages from MIT or Caltech yearbooks.  He also mentioned, in a phone conversation with me, California State University at Northridge and Pierce Junior College – – also in the San Fernando Valley, California.  I checked all four schools.  Pierce said he had taken electronics courses in the late 1970s.  The other three schools never heard of him.

The page from the Los Alamos National Lab phone book with Lazar’s name on it clearly states that it includes employees of the DOE and outside contractor, Kirk Meyer. “K/M” follows Lazar’s name.  This proves he worked for K/M, not LANL.

I checked with LANL’s personnel department for Lazar’s name and that of an old colleague.  They found my guy, but not Lazar.

He was publicly asked when he got his MS from MIT.  He said “Let me see now, I think it was probably 1982.”  Nobody getting an MS from MIT would not know the year immediately.  He was asked to name some of his profs.  He said: “Let’s see now, Bill Duxler will remember me from the physics department at Caltech.”  I located Dr. Duxler.  He’s a Pierce Junior College physics prof, and never taught at Caltech.  Lazar was registered in one of his courses at the same time Lazar was supposedly at MIT!   Nobody who can go to MIT goes to Pierce JC, not to mention the rather long commute between LA and Cambridge, Mass.

I checked his High School in New York State.  He graduated in August, not with his class.  The only science course he took was chemistry.  He ranked 261 out of 369, which is in the bottom third.  There is no way he would have been admitted by MIT or Caltech.  An MS in Physics from MIT requires a thesis.  No such thesis exists at MIT, and he is not on a commencement list.  The notion that the government wiped his CIVILIAN records clean is absurd.  I checked with the Legal Counsel at MIT – – no way to wipe all his records clean.  The Physics department never heard of him and he is not a member of the American Physical Society.

When he declared bankruptcy in the mid 1980s for almost $300,000.00 he listed his occupation as a self-employed film processor.  With MS degrees from MIT and Caltech?  Caltech would not have accepted him for an MS program, if he already had one from MIT.

His propulsion scheme sounds good  (as do many science fiction stories),  but makes no real sense especially in view of how difficult it would be to add protons to #115.  Gravity wave amplification sounds great but what does it mean?

He could not have gotten a Compartmentalized Security clearance having operated a brothel.  His W-2 form from the Department of Naval Intelligence totals under $1000.00, at most a week’s pay for a scientist:

(CLICK TO ENLARGE ABOVE – – the original “paycheck” of Bob Lazar

You can’t get a security clearance in a week.

Scientists leave trails.  Lazar is NOT a scientist.  He couldn’t even answer scientific questions put to him.   An excellent review of Bob’s “Physics” can be seen at:

LAZAR CRTIQUE, by Dr. David L. Morgan

I should add that Bob is a bright and talented guy who operated a jet powered car, put on fireworks displays, and apparently helped physics professors working at the Los Alamos Meson accelerator facility.


But the big question is:

Was he a total fraud or a reluctant disinformant?

Plasma weapons, emerging military technology and UFOs

This type of military technology has been developing for more than 45 years or so.  So just imagine what we may have at the present moment.  Please read the following item from 1999:

by Justin Mullins, NEW SCIENTIST  – – December 25, 1999:


I was at a party in downtown Oakland when I first heard about the Voice of God.  It was the usual mix – – a few intellectuals from Berkeley and Stanford, the gracious host and hostess and a gaggle of greedy journalists, of whom I was one.

The conversation was highbrow and stilted but the food was plentiful, so I stayed to chat.  It was an innocuous, forgettable evening, except for one thing, a short conversation with an expert in laser optics from Stanford University.

His extraordinary tale left me spinning.

It involved a clandestine military project with a goal so outrageous that, even now, it is difficult to comprehend.  The story was set in the late 1980s, at an undisclosed military research facility hidden in the New Mexico desert.  (most likely the Manzano/Sandia base at Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque).

Here, researchers working with high-power laser weapons discovered that they could create a glowing ball of fire in the sky by crossing the beams of two powerful infrared lasers.  The beams were invisible to the naked eye, but where they intersected, their electric fields became so intense that they ripped apart molecules in the air, creating a plasma – – a luminous mix of high-energy ions and electrons.

By moving the laser beams around the sky, the researchers found they could shift the plasma ball back and forth at very high speed.  They even discovered that by switching the beams on and off quickly and redirecting them to different spots, they could maintain several plasma balls in the air at the same time.  At night, they demonstrated their skills, flying their glowing creations in formation high above the cold desert.


Here is a timely comment by Smythers on Dreamland Resort:

“So this was a thing back in the day – lasers creating plasma balls that shifted and shimmered in the night skies, the science teams sweeping them across the heavens like red/burnt orange egg shaped chariots of the gods

and this is now back in the main stream.

The above was from a piece 20 years ago now – so this all in all is around 40 to 45 YEARS old.

Why am I posting this?  Because these laser spheres make a great defensive capability against hypersonic airframes of all sorts.  Hitting a dense ball of plasma at 120,000 feet is going to ruin your day.

Almost like a tic tac that could be visible on radars and IR tracking apparatus over a Navy fleet.

Food for thought as the Pentagon scientists are now investing major money in this talking/visible field of energetic research. Publicly this time but wrapped up in the ‘less than lethal’ field – to make people hear and see things.”

Not all Italian-Americans are for Columbus Day celebrations



It might be surprising to learn that I am an Italian American against Columbus Day.

I’m not a self-hating Italian.  Quite the opposite.  I couldn’t be more proud of my heritage.  My family comes from Basilicata and Molise in il mezzogiorno (Southern Italy).  They came here, as immigrants still do, to escape poverty and find work.

I was born and raised in the working-class streets of South Philly in the 50s and 60s, a time when Italians were still not considered completely white.  As a kid, I endured being called “dago” and “greaseball.”  I was told I had a Roman nose; “roams all over your face,” the kids would laugh.

Every October 12, I got to feel proud of my ethnic features and curly hair.  I didn’t know much about Columbus, only that he was Italian and had discovered America.

In college, I learned a different story.  Failing to find a new route to India, the sailor from Genoa “discovered” a land already occupied by millions of indigenous people.  Columbus wrote of them in his journal, “They would make fine servants…With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.”  He then claimed their land for Spain.  He didn’t claim it for Italy, which was not even a country at the time.

His “discovery” led to the eventual death of 80% or more of the native populations from European diseases to which they had no immunity.  Not to mention the murder of those who dared to resist the will of the conquistadors.

I never felt the same about October 12 again.

I decided to search for real Italian-American heroes.  I studied the history of Italian immigration to this country, it was not a pretty picture.  Those of us from Southern Italy were considered a separate race from Northern Europeans.  Experts wrote that we would never amount to anything because we were innately inferior to Anglos.  There were NINA (No Italian Need Apply) signs to greet us in store windows, and lynchings in the South (where racists saw us as no different than blacks).

During World War II, President Roosevelt approved a blueprint for internment camps for Italian-Americans.  That plan was never executed, but thousands of Italians were relocated, imprisoned and harassed.  The “secret history,” as it is called, of that period is memorialized in a museum exhibit (“Una Storia Segreta”) that has toured the country.

In the midst of my digging, I uncovered heroes: Ferdinando Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, two anarchists who were found guilty of murdering a pay clerk and security guard in Braintree, Massachusetts.  International protests did not stop the execution of those men, despite the fact that the evidence was flimsy and during the trial, the judge called them “dagos,” a derogatory term for Italians.

There were the brave Italian immigrant women who helped organize the female garment workers in the sweat shops in New York.  And of course Harlem’s amazing congressman, Vito Marcantonio, who pushed for civil rights for blacks in the 50s, Carlo Tresca, who was involved in the Italian Railroad Workers Federation and published two progressive newspapers, and Mario Savio, one of the founders of the free speech movement at Berkeley in the 60s.

Even the entertainment industry had its share of giants, such as Frank Sinatra who produced a music video in the 40s that promoted multiculturalism, and Tony Bennett, who marched with Martin Luther King in the South.

It’s time for Italian-Americans to say goodbye to Columbus and embrace our proud history.

Being proud to be Italian has nothing to do with Columbus.



New Mexico, USA celebrates its first Indigenous Peoples’ Day – – Monday, October 14, 2019

My comment:

I had mixed emotion when I decided to post this article.

Nevertheless, I decided to bring this topic up mainly because I live in New Mexico, a unique state that has 23 native American tribes within and a state where the Anglo-Saxon population is not the majority.

The Indo-Hispano people are the majority here in New Mexico.

In other words, the majority of the people here are of mixed heritage – – Spanish and indigenous.

Even though there are also some Caucasian Spaniards  (pure Hispanos with blue eyes)  here but they are in a minority, because the vast majority of the Spanish conquistadores did not bring their Spanish women from Spain and therefore chose to marry local indigenous women  (i.e., native American women).

There are also some descendants of Hispanic Jews that found refuge here, especially in northern New Mexico, who had fled the Spanish Inquisition in Europe and elsewhere.  But again, many of them intermarried here with the local indigenous folks as well as with some Anglo Saxons who later came to New Mexico.

New Mexico definitely has a complicated history.

But I believe that with much pain and suffering, the original residents, i.e., the native Americans and their culture did survive all these years and that recognition should finally be given.  This is just my personal opinion.

New Mexico, USA celebrates its first Indigenous Peoples’ Day – – Monday, October 14, 2019

New Mexico, USA, officially marked its first Indigenous Peoples’ Day on Monday, October 14, 2019.

Governer Michelle Lujan signed a bill this year creating this significant holiday.

Lujan Grisham said in a statement Wednesday that she was “proud” to legalize this new holiday:

“This new holiday will mark a celebration of New Mexico’s 23 sovereign indigenous nations and the essential place of honor native citizens hold in the fabric of our great state,” she said.  “Enacting Indigenous Peoples’ Day sends an important message of reconciliation and will serve as a reminder of our state’s proud native history.”

From now on every year this legal public holiday will always fall on the second Monday of October.

A’HO to this !!

Bob Lazar and George Knapp peddling the same old story with a new book – – “DREAMLAND, An Autobiography”

(Available on AMAZON from October 15, 2019)

According to the description of this new book peddled by Bob Lazar and George Knapp:

“Bob Lazar is the reason Area 51 became infamous in the 1980s and his recent appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast with 7 million listeners is credited with inspiring the Storm Area 51 phenomenon.

In his DREAMLAND autobiography, Lazar reveals every detail of his highly controversial story about being an insider within the world’s most legendary military research base.”

But it’s the same old unsubstantiated story told over and over again.

Nothing new.

But if you are still gullible enough to want to buy this highly dubious “autobiographical” book, you can also buy it directly from Bob Lazar through his own website:

By the way, the FOREWORD in this book was written by none other than, you guessed it, debonair raconteur  (i.e., a dashing, skilled storyteller)  George Knapp, Lazar’s long-time promoter and handler who practically made a secondary career peddling Lazar’s “extraterrestrial” tale.

History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” crankery

(But it makes for a great entertainment)

“ANCIENT ALIENS is some of the most noxious sludge in television’s bottomless chum bucket.  Actual (so-called) “experts” are brought in to deliver sound bites that are twisted and taken out of context while fanatics are given free reign.  Fiction is presented as fact, and real scientific research is so grossly misrepresented that I can only conclude that the program is actively lying to viewers.  To present the show as a documentary, on a non-fiction network, is a loathsome move by the History Channel spinoff.” – – Brian Switeck

ANCIENT ALIENS is a “documentary” series on the (pseudo) History Channel which premiered in April of 2010.  The History Channel also screened a two-hour documentary of the same name in 2009.

Unsurprisingly – – given that ANCIENT ALIENS is just a rehash of ancient astronauts crankery, courtesy of Erich von Däniken  – – Däniken himself appears sweatily frequently in most episodes.

ANCIENT ALIENS now airs about every other minute, even outshining Pawn Stars in network executive love.

Re-branded as the Ancient Alien Theory, abusing the word theory in the process, von Däniken and Giorgio A. Tsoukalos set out to show how humanity achieved very little without the assistance of aliens.  While it could be more accurately be described as the Ancient Alien Hypothesis, it could be even more accurately described as the Ancient Alien Ass-pull.

The History Channel describes the “theory” as such:

According to ancient alien theorists, extraterrestrials with superior knowledge of science and engineering landed on Earth thousands of years ago, sharing their expertise with early civilizations and forever changing the course of human history.  But how did this concept develop, and is there any evidence to support it?”

Why I commend the US Navy’s recent use of the term “UAP”, instead of “UFO”

With regards to the recent controversy over the footages of the so-called “Tic Tac UFO”, testimony by pilot David Fravor and the position of the US Navy on this matter, I totally agree with the US Navy’s recent choice of the termUAP” (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon) instead of “UFOs”.

Here is why I also detest the term “UFOs”:

Unfortunately, to most people, the term “UFOs” automatically has a connotation of something from outer space, i.e., such as “alien spacecraft”.   That should not be the case.

The term “UFO” immediately implies that something is actually and physically “flying”, as if utilizing some type of a propulsion system as we understand the term “flying” to be.

The term “UFO” also implies that that “something” is exclusively a physical object as we understand the term “object” to be.

I have always agreed with Dr. Jacques Vallee’s proposition that “UFOs” may not necessarily be “objects” nor could they be “flying” as we understand those terms to imply.

This is why I prefer the term UAP, i.e., Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.

This is not a matter of semantics.

As I stated numerous times in the past, I am convinced that the “UFO phenomenon”  (or, more correctly described as “Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon”) is a real phenomenon.

That’s as far as we can go, for right now.

But the most important thing is that UAP is simply a phenomenon, for right now.

It is not equivalent to “alien spacecraft”.

It will remain a phenomenon until it is solved.

And we must take into consideration that it may never be solved by humans.

And that’s the bottom line, at least, for right now.
