Agents from the U.S. Air Force and FBI recently raided homes in Clark and Lincoln counties in an investigation of a man who operates a website about the top-secret military base known as Area 51, a spokesman said Wednesday.

From the cited article...

...Dreamland Resort, at, started by Arnu in 1999, features YouTube videos taken from drones flown over places around Area 51, satellite images of the base, a discussion forum with posts on the topic, articles on test flights, "black projects" and UFOs, and what it says are photos of new vehicles such as the so-called "super secret" Northrop Grumman RQ-180 unmanned stealth aircraft shown flying in 2021....

"...features YouTube videos taken from drones flown over places around Area 51..." --- I suspect that may be what caught the investigators' attention.

And now for omething completely different...

Tubes - What Do You Want From Life


What do you want from life?
To kidnap an heiress
Or threaten her with a knife?
What do you want from life?
To get cable TV
And watch it every night?

There you sit, a
Lump in your chair
Where do you sleep
And what do you wear
When you're sleeping

What do you want from life?
An Indian guru
To show you the inner light?
What do you want from life?
A meaningless love affair
With a girl that you met tonight?

How can you tell when you're doin' alright?
Does your bank account swell
While you're dreaming at night?
How do you know when you're really in love?
Do violins play when you're touching the one
That you're loving?
You might also like
Boy Crazy
The Tubes
Mondo -------
The Tubes
No Sleep
What do you want from life?
(What do you want from life?)
Someone to love
And somebody you can trust?
What do you want from life?
(What do you want from life?)
To try and be happy
While you do the nasty things you must?

Woof, they don't write lyrics like that anymore...

Here is an interesting fact for you UFO lovers. In World War II Germany built a stealth jet fighter known as the HO 229. It was brought to the USA. It was evidently seen by Kenneth Arnold in 1947 as his picture of a flying UFO is very close to the picture of the HO 229. There is a picture of it crashed at Roswell on the Internet. Rumor has it that it was used to sneak up on an Alien Saucer and shoot it down. The rest you can investigate.

I am old man with not that many years space aliens, if you are out there, would you please just stop with the mystery and (ET) call up the White House and ask if you can visit them? And then, of course, find a way to help us stop ruining our planet. Or is Trump your guy after all?

After the 1947 UFO sighting, Arnold became famous "practically overnight". Arnold's daughter would later recall the family receiving 10,000 letters and constant phone calls.[3]

Arnold was contacted by Raymond A. Palmer, editor of fringe/sci-fi magazine Amazing Stories,[5] who asked Arnold to investigate the story of two harbormen in Tacoma who reportedly possessed fragments of a "flying saucer".[5] Palmer sent $200 to fund the investigation.[5]

On July 29, Arnold interviewed a harborman who claimed that one of the objects "began spewing forth what seemed like thousands of newspapers from somewhere on the inside of its center. These newspapers, which turned out to be a white type of very light weight metal, fluttered to earth". The harborman claimed the craft emitted a substance resembling lava rocks that fell onto his boat, breaking a worker's arm and killing a dog.[5][6]

Arnold interviewed Fred Crisman, an associate of the harborman, who reported having recovered debris from Maury Island and having witnessed an unusual craft.[5] Crisman showed "white metal" debris to Arnold, who interpreted it as mundane and inconsistent with the harborman's description.[5]

Arnold contacted the Air Force, and two officers soon arrived to investigate.[5] The officers conducted interviews, collected the fragments, and took off in their plane to return to base. In the early hours of August 1, the two officers died when the B-25 Bomber they were piloting crashed outside of Kelso, Washington on their way back to California.[7]

Writing in 1956, Air Force officer Edward J. Ruppelt would conclude "The whole Maury Island Mystery was a hoax. The first, possibly the second-best, and the dirtiest hoax in the UFO history."

The only reasons I could think of for the FBI to raid a home over UFO info is,

1. They are trying to get a clue on source leaks inside Area 51.

2. They are attempting to remove information that actually leads to something they don't wish to be known.

Other than those items it would seem to me it would be better to ignore it (in the process not giving credit to UFO enthusiasts). By doing a raid, one has to think there is something there, something our government doesn't wish us to know.
