Daily 2 Cents: Bright Light Puzzles FAA & USAF -- He Wants My Baby... -- NSA Loses UFO Files

Bright Light Puzzles FAA & USAF

CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, Calif. — Both KTVU and our affiliate station in Sacramento received multiple calls about a bright light streaming across the sky around 6 a.m. (9/12)

Police at multiple stations in Contra Costa County tell KTVU they also received calls.

KTVU checked in with the Vandenberg Air Force Base and FAA who both said they aren't aware of what may have caused the bright light.

There's a strong solar storm scheduled to hit earth beginning Friday morning, and experts say the light could be tied to the storm.

At this point, additional details have not been released.



A Skunk Ape arm? Mmmm...there was no mention of where it was found, just somewhere in Florida. It's not human...being tested for DNA. We'll see....

UPDATE: it's actually an alligator arm. Lon


Religion Doesn't Make People More Moral

A new study has examined how religious and political affiliations affect how we perceive morality.

Researchers from Saint Peter's University in New Jersey and the University of Illinois in Chicago asked 1,252 adults from the United and States and Canada a number of questions about their experiences both committing and witnessing good and bad deeds.

While those from different religious and political backgrounds might seem to be at loggerheads on a number of moral issues, the study found that people tend to commit the same number of good deeds regardless of their personal beliefs.

There were however some differences among the participants - deeply religious people tended to experience a more intense feeling of guilt or embarrassment upon committing an immoral act and a deeper sense of pride or satisfaction when committing a moral one.

On the political side, liberals and conservatives appeared to have similar morals but tended to think and talk about moral concepts in different ways.

"As far as I know, this is the first study that's used this kind of lived-experience approach to track morality as it's happening," said psychologist Dan Wisneski. Read more at Live Science


He Wants My Baby...

I am 6 months pregnant. Before I even knew I was pregnant, I just knew I was. My husband and I had been trying barely for a month, when I dreamed I was pregnant and something inside me told me I was even though it was still two weeks before I was supposed to get my period. My body, my mind, my soul just knew I was already pregnant, I had to be. I took some test I bought at a drug store the very next day but they came out negative. It was still too early to detect it. I waited a week and took the first response pregnancy test and sure enough it was positive. I took three more just to be sure before I went to confirm with my doctor. My husband and I were extremely happy...still are, but what happened to me has me going crazy.

I've never had a history of mental disorders, dont even have a history of that in my whole family, both my mom's and dad's side. All my life I've been perfectly healthy. My way of thinking is always positive, always look at the bright side of things even when I know things are bad I focus on the good or I try to find an explanation for weird things that happen but unfortunately I just can not think of a single reason of why I saw what I did and felt like I did at that very moment and it has not happened again thankfully.

I am truly terrified. Never have I felt this fear in my 23 years of life. I'm getting shaky just rethinking about it, I actually feel it staring at me. I'm sorry its just so hard to type it out but I'm in desperate need of help that I will have to suck it up.

Sorry if I make any spelling mistakes I just want to write it out as fast as I can and get it over with. It happened yesterday. It was around 5:50 pm, my husband had just come home from work. He's usually home a little before six. He pulled up, I heard his car pull into our driveway. I was in the kitchen sweeping and had the front door open with the screen door closed so I could perfectly hear him calling out to me asking if I wanted to go on a walk around the neighborhood. I yelled at him that I would be right out just had to go into my room to get my keys.

As I walked away from the kitchen and towards our room I felt this overwhelming sense of fear and like I was being watched. I could feel the heaviness as soon as I walked in the room, of what I dont know, just a real bad horrible vibe, I cannot explain it. I have a storage space in my room on the ceiling right above my closet. I have high ceilings so basically they built the closet then made a regular ceiling on it with the rest of the room is built with a high ceiling. Makes sense? Well on top of that space I have a couple of old things I no longer use but still work but there was something else on top of there watching me.
I am Catholic, I was baptized and did my first communion, I might not go to church every Sunday but I go once in a great while. I believe in god in good and bad. I believe in satan as well. If good exists evil must too. With that being said I know it was the devil, satan himself on top of that staring at me. Im on the verge of tears now I dont know if I can go on but I must be strong for my baby and I, I need help.

As I walked by I could feel him, staring at my every move I could feel that he wanted to take my son with him I just knew thats what he wants. I was so scared I did not evwn want to turn my head to the right to see him, I was terrified, still am. I grabbed the keys from my purse that was on my bed and turned the opposite direction so I wouldnt face him. But i just had to have a quick glance at him, and that's what I regret most in my life.

He was sitting on his legs but at the same time up, kind of like when a dog sits when you tell them you have a treat for them and they are sitting up waiting for it, well like that and he had thick chains with thick cuffs around both his legs, I cant even think of the proper things to call his feet. They looked like hoofs, at least one did and the other like a chicken foot but in a human looking way. Its so hard to describe. And his face, his face had regular features as an adult but his eyes had a menacing look, he had a grin on his face, like he was enjoying making me feel terrified. He looked greysih but brown also. His look though the way he was looking at me, that is engraved in my soul. He wanted to take my sweet angel from me and for reason I believe that if I would have made eye contact with him he would have taken him from me.

I tried to be strong and not show fear inside me I was yelling and running out of there but for some magical reason I maintained composure and walked away from the room with tears in my eyes. Once I reached the leaving room I ran out to my husband crying telling him what I had just saw but he couldn't even understand me. I do not know why I saw that, was it my imagination? I doubt it, I haven't even seen scary movies or anything. I was happy prior to that ready to go on a walk then all of a sudden that. Please believe me, I am not crazy, and no it is not my hormones. I was perfectly fine I know what I saw I know how I felt before even seeing him. My husband kind of doesn't believe me, but hes doing everything he can to make me feel safe but its not enough.

Why does he want my unborn son, hes the light of our life even though hes not born yet we would give up our life without hesitation just to make sure hes safe. Why me, why I've been good where did I fail. I know most wont believe me but I swear is the truth. I just dont know what to do, I wish this was just a nightmare because its exactly how it feels. But it's reality, my reality. I dont even want to step foot in my house. I dont know what I am going to do. I know it was not my imagination please help me - Reddit.com


NSA says it has lost its non-redacted UFO files

UFO and government secrecy researcher John Greenewald has been petitioning to get the National Security Agency (NSA) UFO files that were released in the 90s further declassified. When they were released, after a legal battle, much of the information was redacted. There are large swaths of information that have been blacked out or covered with white out. However, the NSA recently told Greenewald they could not find even one original of the hundreds of pages UFO files.

Greenewald received this information in response to a request for a Mandatory Declassification Review (MDR) of the NSA’s UFO files. MDRs require that the agency re-review previously released redacted files to unredact information that is now declassified. This is a similar process that was used to reveal the name of Area 51 in CIA documents last year.

The MDR was fulfilled for an affidavit related to the lawsuit asking the NSA to release its UFO files in 1980, called the Yeates affidavit. As for the rest, the NSA writes, “With the exception of the enclosed document, we cannot locate unredacted copies or the original documents that were previously reviewed and released to the public.”

In the late 70s, the Citizens Against UFO Secrecy (CAUS), headed by lawyer Peter Gersten, sought to get UFO files from several government agencies released using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The NSA refused to release their files, so CAUS sued.

The NSA had a large amount of UFO files, not necessarily because they were investigating UFOs, but because they monitor communications worldwide as part of their regular duties. These files are called communications intelligence (COMINT). Among this large amount of data, there were hundreds of files referring to UFOs. However, the NSA felt they should remain classified.

In 1980, Eugene F. Yeates, chief of the Office of Policy for the NSA, submitted a 21 page document to the judge overseeing the case, Federal Judge Gerhart A. Gesell, as to why these files should remain classified. This is the Yeates affidavit. However, this document was also classified.

Although Gesell did not have the clearance to read the documents in question, the Yeates affidavit convinced him that the NSA files should stay classified. He wrote, “The public interest in disclosure is far outweighed by the sensitive nature of the materials and the obvious effect on national security their release may well entail.”

When the Yeates affidavit was released, it was heavily redacted. UFO researcher Stanton Friedman shows a page from the document to demonstrate government UFO secrecy, and as he says, this goes over well on television where a simple image can be very effective when making a point.

Eventually, in 1997, due to laws making it more difficult to keep files over 25 years old classified, the NSA released a less redacted Yeates affidavit, and 156 UFO documents. As Friedman puts it, the affidavit was originally about 75% blacked out, the second version was only about 20% blacked out. However, the UFO documents are heavily redacted.

The NSA must have seen Friedman’s talks or television interviews, because instead of mostly blacking out the text, this time they largely whited it out, making it much less visually poignant.

Greenewald writes, “In essence, the ‘originals’ were destroyed or lost when they blacked out the records many years ago — and now in 2014 — they are missing and can not be further reviewed for declassification and release. The history, whatever it may be, is lost forever.” Read more at Open Minds TV
