Do you believe in UFOs?

Responses to this simple question will vary. Some will respond with an eye roll and a few will smile. Once in a while though, someone will respond with an emphatic “yes.”

Needless to say, Sen. Marco Rubio, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, has been privy to classified information and he is extremely concerned. Either Chinese technology has advanced at a frightening pace without our knowledge or we’ve have visitors from beyond our solar system.

TMZ caught up with the Florida Republican on Monday at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C. to discuss the situation.

Rubio told TMZ, “There’s stuff flying over military installations and no one knows what it is, and it isn’t ours. So, for me, that’s logical. You want to know what it is. It’s just common sense. Stuff’s flying over the top of your most sensitive installations and it’s not ours and no one knows whose it is, you should find out what it is and tell us.”

The TMZ reporter noted that many people consider China to be a big threat, but he wondered if we shouldn’t also “be worried about what else that’s out in the universe.”

Rubio laughs. “I would take it one step at a time. You know what I mean. I’m not saying that’s what it’s all about. Like I told you, I don’t know the answer to what it is. But it’s stuff that’s there.”

“So, you’re on the intel committee and they don’t tell you what’s going on?,” the reporter asks.

“Well, I think they tell us what’s going on. I mean there’s stuff flying over the top of our military and they don’t know who’s flying it. They don’t even know what it is,” answers Rubio. “So that’s a problem. We need to find out if we can.”

“So, everyone thinks we’re the smartest out there in the universe. But are the aliens possibly smarter than we are?”

The senator shrugs and says, “If they made it all the way here, they probably are, yeah. If they can get here and we can’t get there, that tells you they’re more advanced. But I don’t know if there are aliens. I don’t know if they’ve ever visited. When you talk about that stuff, everybody gets all stigmatized about it. No one wants to sound weird. My stuff is very simple. We don’t know what that stuff is that’s flying over the top of our installations. Let’s find out. Maybe it’s another country and that would be bad news too.”

“Let’s just say, one more question … hypothetically …  should Biden … should we try to be friendly with these folks?”

“Oh, I don’t know man,” replies Rubio with a smile. “We have so many problems going on as it is, that would be one heck of a way to top the last year and a half.”

Marco Rubio is far from the only government official open to the possibility that aliens may exist.

In August 2020, several months after the Navy officially released video recordings of unexplained encounters pilots and sailors have experienced (presented below), “Deputy Secretary of Defense David L. Norquist approved the establishment of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force (UAPTF),” which will be led by the Navy.

Last Monday, former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe appeared on Fox News’ “Primetime” with Maria Bartiromo. The two discussed the Pentagon’s forthcoming report about UAVs which is expected to be released in June.

In the video below, Ratcliffe tells her, “There have been a lot more sightings that haven’t been made public. Some of those have been declassified.

When we talk about sightings, we’re talking about objects that have been seen by Navy or Air Force pilots or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain. Movements that are hard to replicate, that we don’t have the technology for. Or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom. So, in short, things that we are observing that are difficult to explain. And so, there’s actually quite a few of those. So that information is being gathered and will be put out.

When we see these things Maria, we always look for a plausible explanation. Weather can cause disturbances, visual disturbances. Sometimes we wonder whether our adversaries have technology that are a little bit further down the road than we thought or that we realized. There are instances where we don’t have good explanations for some of the things that we’ve seen and when that information is declassified, I’ll be able to talk a little bit more about that.

Some readers may have seen the stunning videos officially released by the U.S. Navy in April 2020 of well, unidentified flying objects. The Black Vault’s John Greenewald, Jr. explains that the Navy uses the term UAP as opposed to UFO because it is the “basic descriptor for the sightings/observations of unauthorized/unidentified aircraft/objects that have been observed entering/operating in the airspace of various military-controlled training ranges.”

(Note: The videos had been previously released by The New York Times and The Black Vault in 2017 and 2018. By April 2020, the videos were “officially” approved for release.)

One video was recorded off the coast of San Diego in November 2004. The “FLIR1” became known as the “Tic-Tac UFO Incident” and a film entitled the “Nimitz Encounters” was made about it, according to Greenewald.

And two others were recorded off the coast of Virginia by navy pilots on a training mission in January 2015.

Last week, Popular Mechanics reported that over a period of four nights in July 2019, a small group of U.S. Navy destroyers out on maneuvers off the coast of San Diego, coincidentally in the same area where UAVs had been seen in 2004, claimed to have “encountered a mysterious fleet of drones. The Navy investigated the bizarre incident … but came away without a satisfactory explanation.”

(Note: The Popular Mechanics piece was blocked by a paywall, however, a version of the article was available on Outline.)

The drones were described by crew members as “Tic Tac shaped objects” which was precisely the description provided by the Navy pilots who’d seen them in 2004. They “displayed an obvious interest in the destroyers.”

Observers claimed they “demonstrated capabilities far exceeding commercial drones, including flight time.” At one point, “a drone paced a destroyer as it sailed at 16 knots.”

In September 2019, the article states, “observers spotted five to six drones in and around the Palo Verde nuclear power plant. And in January 2020, a wave of mystery drone sightings took place over Colorado, Nebraska, and Wyoming.”

The Navy has no explanation for this.

  1. Why I love this blog. Mix of relevant and now entertainment. Thank You, Elizabeth!
    Now, Einstein’s theory of spacetime being relative to the observer may help our three dimensional minds consider a fourth dimensional (or multi-dimensional) critter visiting. The shape observed by FLIR sensors could be just a fraction of the size (mass) observed. It could be in total size, however, FLIR is programmed on our three dimensional spacetime, which could “see” only a small part of it entering our three dimensional space. Should this be a simple un-inhabited drone from a spacetime differential to us, it would help explain its miraculous movement and tremendous disappearance off scope sans Sonic boom.
    My limited knowledge of terrestrial technology suggests neither we nor ANY foreign entity can create this anomoly. Keep in mind our adversaries continue to steal technology.
    The object can only be seen by FLIR if it gives off radiant heat.
    The WSO switching to TV (visual senor) suggests a solid form through visible light.
    Our theoretical physicists are having fun with these images. However, it’s possible that natural phenomenon create these sightings. Especially over our oceans.
    Nice that former federal administration allowed us to witness these declassified videos. Honesty still best policy.

  2. What is your opinion? … I spoke to a former American Airlines pilot last year who said he was flying once and he noticed an oval shaped “ship” flying nearly right next to the was similar to the size of his plane and it was following his speed. His co-pilot saw it. They called in the rest of the flight crew to witness it. He notified the powers that be and they told him he’d seen swamp fog! I’m inclined to believe UFOs are for real. … But I also thought Trump would win.

  3. Do I believe that Marco Rubio believes in UFOs? Absolutely. Do I believe in UFOs? Well, I’d bet that UFOs from this planet (military hardware) are more likely than UFOs from other worlds. That being said, I used to live in Vegas and occasionally would play roulette, so my hunches may not be all that good.

    Do I believe in aliens from other worlds? Absolutely. My first ex-wife has always had me wondering just where she really was from….ooookay, no more bad jokes. I do think aliens are a possibility…. com’on man, does anyone think that man invented fish tacos without otherworldly help?

  4. R.E.T.,
    You’re a hoot. Retired Air Force here as well. Highest security next to POTUS. Having studied theoretical physics way beyond my highschool physics teacher’s advice: “go into the army as you lack brains for any other branch of the military,” I know Einstein’s theories hold water.
    However, we invent terms such as alien life, acronyms like UFOs, UAVs etc, to appease our intuition.
    What exists within and without our three dimensional observation still confounds our understanding.
    What I love about Elizabeth’s entreats into the recent declassified videos is it’s honesty. I trust our GIs sufferance and amazement over their observed anomalies.
    However, these recorded jet FLIR videos are far from evidencing visitors from another dimension/spacetime.
    Einstein wanted to call his 1905 notion on special relativity (E=mc2) ” Invariance.” However, friends he admired and hoped to help him get his PhD (and Nobel Prize) convinced him to call it, “relativity.”
    The f**ked up media, academia and every psychologist since had interpreted Einstein’s first brilliant simplification of our universe to mean, everything is relative!
    That cannot be further from the Truth! He evidenced at least one constant (the speed of light in the vacuum of space) as a constant. And that constant reverberates through 2021 years of human existence!
    We could continue a metaphysical discussion here, but Elizabeth would have us digress.
    Yes, alien life forms exist. They are, in my opinion our Angels, birthright trancendents. Our Creator exists as written in ancient texts; we in His Image, for His Glory.
    Pissing on the ancient prophesies through humanistic abnormalities our certain doom…

    • I believe in angels. I believe I actually meant one once, but that is fodder for a different post and time. All I can say now is I am here today, alive because of that being.
