So, I know everyone's afraid of looking like a crazy person, but I can’t believe the new UFO report from the Pentagon isn't a bigger deal.

Our govt says there are crafts that "outstrip our arsenal by at least 100 years to 1,000 years at the moment” and we're like "meh..."
The former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence literally said the crafts we’re seeing are “far beyond anything that we’re capable of…There’s nothing we could build that would be strong enough to endure that amount of force and acceleration.”
There were so many sightings the Pentagon confirmed that they created a top secret program to investigate UFO’s.

The USS Princeton and USS Nimitz tracked an aircraft that traveled 60 miles in 3-4 seconds, after being confronted by an F-18 fighter squadron in the Pacific.
“Imagine a technology that can do 700 g-forces, fly 13,000 mph, evade radar…And has no obvious signs of propulsion...and yet still can defy the effects of Earth’s gravity. That’s precisely what we’re seeing.”

-Director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program
We’re just now finding out there have been so many sightings by our military that the Senate Intel committee is holding a public hearing next month because it’s a “national security threat.”
People seem to be taking three different stances here:

1) It's advanced U.S. technology being tested
2 It's China or some other foreign military
3) It's other-worldly
If it is the United States:

1. Why would we spend hundreds of millions of dollars investigating sightings of our own crafts?

2. Why would our govt release footage of the incidents? I guess it could be a “look at us” to other militaries, but wouldn’t it tip our hand?
If it is China:

1. Confirmed sightings date to 2004, long before China had their new tech boom. How'd they keep this tech secret for 17 years?

2. Why hasn’t that level of tech been seen elsewhere in China? (Their submarines and carriers are archaic compared to the U.S.)
If it’s something other-worldly:

1. Setting aside that it’s totally irrational, if they/it are this far ahead of us, wouldn’t they be able to avoid detection?

2. If they’ve been here on/off for 20 years, why haven’t they done anything yet?
I know we've all spent years laughing at anyone who brings up UFOs, but if the U.S. military and intelligence community is to the point where they’re calling it a national security threat, it’s probably time to take them seriously.
This quote from Naval Commander David Fravor should underscore the seriousness of the topic:

“I don't know who's building it, who's got the technology, who's got the brains. But there's something out there that was better than our airplanes.”
You can laugh, but these are serious, highly trained people talking about why we should care.

This video is pretty wild:

Here's the full 60 Minutes video for those asking:

The Pentagon said they released the videos because they “didn’t reveal any sensitive information or capabilities.”

Which makes me wonder about the videos that DO reveal sensitive information or capabilities that haven't been released 👀👀👀
I think it's worth adding another possibility:

It's the government misleading us to stoke fear in order to justify increased defense spending/expansion of Space Force, etc.
Also, Obama came out last night and (after years of silence on the matter) says:

"We can't explain how they move, their trajectory. They did not have an easily explainable pattern...we don't know exactly what they are"…

Wait... the guy leading "Drag Queen Story Hour" for kids was arrested for child porn???

If only there would have been some warning signs, we could've stopped this earlier....…
This is the worst, most sickening part:

"The complaint alleges that the abusive acts depicted in the material occurred in a Cottage Grove home owned by Blomme and his husband. The couple are the adoptive parents of two children."
I'm sure this other guy convicted of sexually assaulting an 8 year old is just participating in Drag Queen Story Hour out of the goodness of his heart:…

If we’re canceling things with a history of racism, how bout we start with gun control laws?

Look it up.
The KKK supported strict gun control laws and consistently lobbied for measures to keep guns from "urban areas" that disproportionately housed Black Americans.
After the Civil War, southern states passed laws saying only "Army and Navy" guns could be sold. AKA the ones ex-confederate soldiers already owned.

It was meant as a clear way of keeping guns from Black Americans.

I cannot believe this is real, but it is.

This USC Professor is on leave after students were offended that a Chinese word he used during a lecture on foreign languages sounded like an english racial slur.

Watch the video for yourself:
The school is now offering "supportive measures" to students who were hurt by the Professor's language...
Worth noting: Last month a Professor was put on leave for asking a student named Phuc Bui to consider using a different name because it might offend students in class.

It's a lose-lose.

My Chadwick Boseman Story:

In 2014, while interning in DC, I got to go to a promotional event for his new movie ‘Get On Up.’

Before the event started there was a happy hour in the lobby, and everyone was awkwardly standing around mingling. (1/5)
I kept thinking one of the guys we were standing with was the dude I’d seen in the trailer, but I thought there was no way he wasn’t on the red carpet, or swarmed by people, so I just kinda let it be.
Eventually, I just said “Excuse me, not to be weird, but are you one of the guys in this movie?” And he was just casually like “Yeah, I’m Chadwick, what’s up?” As if him being a movie star was as normal as me being a Hill intern. (3/5)

2 1/2 years ago I committed to reading a book a week until I’d filled up this shelf. Tonight, I got to put the last book on that shelf.

I know it’s cheesy, but this literally changed my life. It took forever, but I can’t tell you how worth it it was. Okay, that’s all. Image
My five favorite on the shelf:

5) The Great Siege of Malta.

Most interesting, intense military history I’ve ever read. Image
4) Nothing To Envy

Haunting account of life inside North Korea. I’ll never forget the first hand accounts in here. Image

The new Mccarthyism in America is the witch hunt against those in academia who don't go along with the Left's SJW narrative.

Here's a thread of cases you probably haven't heard of:
1) This Dean was fired after saying in an email to students “Everyone’s life matters” while advocating for peaceful protest.
2) This Professor at UNT was fired after making a joke criticizing micro aggressions in his classroom:
