"There's an old saying; just because you're paranoid, that doesn't mean they're not out to get you. I have my own variation: just because you're insane that doesn't mean that things aren't slipping in unnoticed through dimensional gateways..." ~ Christopher Knowles (h/t to The Daily Grail for quote.)

I Saw Bigfoot Kissing Santa Claus
Dom Armentano is a “free market economist” for the Cato Institute, which is steeped in Libertarian philosopies. Up to a point that is; apparently, there are limits to what topics are acceptable.
Armentano wrote an op-ed piece that was published in the Vero Beach Journal on UFOs; specifically, on the issue of declassification. The Cato Institute apparently felt this was akin to endorsing child pornography or animal cruelty, for they fired him. If you have any doubt as to Armentano’s UFO interest having anything to do with his firing, here's the response Armentano received when he inquired about his sudden dismissal:
“I won’t deny that this latest op-ed played a role in our decision. Some day we may look back and wish we’d listened to you. But for now this strikes us as not an issue that we want to have as part of Cato’s research agenda.”
However, Armentano did not use the Cato Institute for his UFO “research agenda.”
