A former Israeli space security chief has sent eyebrows shooting heavenward by saying that earthlings have been in contact with extraterrestrials from a "galactic federation."
"The Unidentified Flying Objects have asked not to publish that they are here, humanity is not ready yet," Haim Eshed, former head of Israel's Defense Ministry's space directorate, told Israel's Yediot Aharonot newspaper. The interview in Hebrew ran on Friday, and gained traction after parts were published in English by the Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.
A respected professor and retired general, Eshed said the aliens were equally curious about humanity and were seeking to understand "the fabric of the universe."
Eshed said cooperation agreements had been signed between species, including an "underground base in the depths of Mars" where there are American astronauts and alien representatives. read more
Pompeo's comment came in response to a reporter asking if the State Department is prepared to engage with President-elect Joe Biden's transition team and if not engaging in that process promptly could pose a threat to national security. The secretary of state initially smirked while answering and kept the rest of his remarks vague. "The world is watching what's taking place," he said. "We're going to count all the votes. When the process is complete, there will be electors selected. There's a process. The Constitution lays it out pretty clearly. The world should have every confidence that the transition necessary to make sure that the State Department is functional today, successful today and successful the way the president who's in office on January 20, a minute after noon, will also be successful."
In 2016 Trump lost the popular vote to HRC by more than three million votes. While in office he was impeached, and only through the collusion of his partisan supporters in the Senate avoided removal. While in office the worst epidemic in more than hundred years has ravaged this nation and killed far in excess of 200,000 Americans. Almost none of whom would have died had he responded to the acute crisis with anything other than denial, mockery and indifference. While in office the nation's political, racial and cultural differences have expanded exponentially to be the very worst in our history since the Civil War. Thanks to him we are now a nation completely divided. In 2020, Trump lost the popular vote to Joe Biden by almost four million votes. By any rational, objective standard Trump is a loser and his presidency has been a failure for the bulk of the American people. All that can be said to Trump supporters at this point is, Live With It. read more
Sean Connery, who rose from poverty to knighthood as the original and arguably ultimate big-screen James Bond, died on Saturday at age 90. The actor's son told the BBC that he died in his sleep in Nassau and that he was "unwell for some time." According to his son, the actor "had many of his family who could be in the Bahamas around him." "We are all working at understanding this huge event as it only happened so recently, even though my dad has been unwell for some time," he told the publication. "A sad day for all who knew and loved my dad and a sad loss for all people around the world who enjoyed the wonderful gift he had as an actor."
