Pentagon releases strange footage of UFOs — and an ex-Senate leader says ‘it only scratches the surface’

Published

on

With the Pentagon having formally released three U.S. Navy videos showing what a spokesperson described as “unidentified aerial phenomena,” former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is calling for a thorough review of the material.

On Monday, the 80-year-old Nevada Democrat posted: “The U.S. needs to take a serious, scientific look at this and any potential national security implications. The American people deserve to be informed.”

CBS News’ Stefan Becket reports that according to Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough, one of the three videos was recorded in 2004, while the other two were recorded by Navy pilots in January 2015. Becket quoted Gough as saying, “After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena.”

Reid provocatively suggested the government knows much more about this phenomenon than it is making public:

The New York Times, Becket notes, first reported on the 2004 incident in 2017. One of the U.S. Navy pilots told the Times that an oblong object about 40 feet long was hovering over the Pacific Ocean — saying that it “accelerated like nothing I’ve ever seen.”

According to Becket, “The two other videos of incidents in 2015 include footage of objects moving rapidly through the air. In one, an object is seen racing through the sky and begins rotating in midair.”

In one of the two 2015 videos, a U.S. Navy pilot can be heard saying, “Dude, this is a fucking drone, bro.” And another pilot can be heard saying, “There’s a whole fleet of them.

Pro-Trump internet trolls tried to hijack Nickelodeon’s kid’s survey on who should be president — and failed

Published

on

On Tuesday, Nickelodeon hosted its "Kids Pick The President" straw poll, in which young viewers of the network give their own opinion on who should win the presidential election. The poll has no electoral significance, given that kids cannot vote and given that the survey methodology is not scientific and lets anyone opt in regardless of how it balances the sample.

Despite this, pro-Trump internet trolls reportedly sought to hijack the results, spreading the message to get people to flood the poll with votes for President Donald Trump.

In the end, however, they couldn't even do it. Joe Biden won the poll, 53 percent to 47 percent.

Wisconsin residents saw a “nightmare scenario” situation unfold Tuesday as 5,262 COVID-19 cases rocked the state, resulting in 64 deaths as President Donald Trump held a large campaign rally with few masks and zero social distancing.

"This is no longer a slow-motion disaster," said Gregory Poland, director of the vaccine research group at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. "This is a disaster in warp speed. And it's maddening to me as a physician because a whole lot of people have died and are dying."

Published

President Donald Trump's website appeared to have been briefly hacked on Tuesday -- one week before the 2020 presidential campaign.

Visitors to the site briefly saw a fake DOJ takedown notice.

"This site was seized," the message read. "The world has had enough of the fake-news spreaded (sic) by President Donald J. Trump."

"It is time to allow the world to know the truth," the message continued.

The message also claimed "secret conversations" prove the Trump administration "is involved in the origin of the coronavirus."

There is no evidence that is the case, experts believe the virus originated in China.
