ORLANDO, Fla. — Jason Pirozzolo, a politically-connected Orlando hand surgeon who used to serve on the board of the agency that oversees Orlando International Airport, was named in a Wednesday night report by CBS News as a figure in the sex trafficking investigation targeting U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz and former Seminole tax collector Joel Greenberg. Citing unnamed sources, CBS News reported that Pirozzolo paid for travel, accommodations and female escorts on a trip to the Bahamas with Gaetz in late 2018 or early 2019. “Investigators are trying to determine if the escorts were illegally trafficked ...
Navy pilot tells '60 Minutes' US government sees UFOs all the time: 'Every day for at least two years'
In a report from "60 Minutes," former military pilots explained some of the UFO or UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) sitings have been sited or followed for a very long time.
Former Navy pilot Lt. Ryan Graves' voice is the one that was heard on the now-infamous video captured by U.S. military pilots that still can't be identified. In an interview with co-host Bill Whitaker, Graves said that he saw UAPs almost daily for two years.
He explained that the unidentified objects could easily be U.S. technology still in development, secret spy technology from another country, or "something otherworldly." He noted that his biggest concern is that it's a national security issue because it could be Russian or Chinese. He noted that if they were tactical jets, the military would take it seriously. But as a UFO or UAP, they're unwilling to investigate.
"Because it looks slightly different, we're not willing to actually look at the problem in the face, we're happy to just ignore the fact that these are out there watching us every day," said Graves.
In a 2004 incident, radio, photos and two Naval Aviators saw a UAP that led them to believe it was something otherworldly.
"Your mind tries to make sense of it, like maybe it's a helicopter or a drone," said Alex Detrich, who was training about 100 miles off the coast of San Diego. A nearby ship, the USS Princeton, detected something they couldn't quite figure out and sent Detrich and "Top Gun" flight school grad and commanding officer David Fravor to look at the object. They were joined by their backseat weapons system officer.
The object descended 80,000 feet in less than a second, they explained. They saw a bubbling of white water about the size of a 737 in an otherwise smooth sea.
"So, we're looking at this," Fravor says, laughing uncomfortably. "And about that time, her back-seater says, 'Hey, Skipper, do you...?' And about the time that got out, I said, 'Do you see that down there?' And we saw this little white tic-tac object and it's moving right above the white water area."
Fravor got closer and Detrich circled. It then began mimicking their moves, circling with them. The object then disappeared, taking off in another direction. Seconds later it was seen again near the ship, 60 miles away, captured on camera and radar again.
They both agreed that if they'd seen it "solo" they'd be afraid to report it because it would sound so crazy.
"There's definitely something, I don't know who's building it, who's got the technology or whose got the brains but it's out there," said Fravor.
Next month, the Senate is supposed to release the UAP report, but Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said that it could miss the June 1 deadline.
While speaking to Lou Dobbs on Fox Business during his presidency, Donald Trump promised that he would release all of the information available about UFOs. He never did.

The divorce between Bill and Melinda Gates wasn't expected to be acrimonious, but revelations about the former Microsoft CEO's infidelity are causing concern among the company's board of directors.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the board is investigating Gates after it it was reported that he had an affair with a Microsoft engineer over the course of several years while Gates was serving as CEO.
"Microsoft received a concern in the latter half of 2019 that Bill Gates sought to initiate an intimate relationship with a company employee in the year 2000," a Microsoft spokesman told the Journal. "A committee of the Board reviewed the concern, aided by an outside law firm to conduct a thorough investigation. Throughout the investigation, Microsoft provided extensive support to the employee who raised the concern."
Gates' spokesperson said, "There was an affair almost 20 years ago which ended amicably." She said his "decision to transition off the board was in no way related to this matter. In fact, he had expressed an interest in spending more time on his philanthropy starting several years earlier."
In March 2020, Gates stepped down as CEO and from the board of Berkshire Hathaway, saying he wanted to focus more on philanthropy.
In April 2019, Microsoft announced that it was changing the way it handles sexual harassment and discrimination complaints.
The Lincoln Project to start a civics program to teach K-12 kids that today's government isn't normal
Chasing after your fellow officials screaming at them, staging protests that gum up Congress, and attacks on the U.S. Capitol aren't normal, but for some young people, it's all they've ever witnessed from their government, Axios reported.
It's one of the reasons that the GOP-expat group The Lincoln Project is starting a civics education program they'll call The Franklin Project. They'll also start doing grassroots organizing around those who are fed-up with "partisan dysfunction and authoritarianism." It will become their Democracy Corps, a "hyper-local movement spread across the nation 'that will advocate for and amplify the values upon which America was founded,'" said Axios, quoting the prospectus.
The move comes amid a group of over 100 Republicans threatening to leave the GOP amid Rep. Liz Cheney's (R-WY) expulsion from the House leadership.
"We're not the megaphone; we're the convener," co-executive director Greg Jenkins told Axios.
