"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.)

On UFO Magazine's Blog: "Reactionary Skeptibunkies Move Reactionary Bowels Regards UFO/Nuke Initiative
On UFO Magazine's blog you can read what Robert Hastings has to say about skeptoid Benjamin Radford's attack. (thanks to Alfred Lehmberg for posting this.)
At the conclusion of Hasting's piece, he asks us to "keep an eye out. . ." by the usual suspects on this issue:
I am asking persons who read this to keep an eye out for me and to report any other articles critical of the UFO-Nukes Connection press conference posted by CSI members Benjamin Radford, Kendrick Frazier, James Oberg, James McGaha, and others. Please notify me at email@example.com. Thank you.
Hastings points out that CSI, formerly known as Committee for the Scientific Investigations of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP), has ties with our government's nuclear weapons programs:
Benjamin Radford neglected to mention that he is the managing editor for Skeptical Inquirer magazine, published by the "UFO-skeptical" group CSI. Radford also failed to mention that the executive editor of the magazine, Kendrick Frazier, worked as a PR Specialist at Sandia National Laboratories--one of the US government's largest nuclear weapons labs--for more than 20 years although, with rare exceptions, he seemed shy about acknowledging that fact.There's more; which you can read about on UFO Magazine's blog.
Moreover, a leading CSI member, James Oberg, once worked with classified nukes-related secrets while in the Air Force and once privately chastised another former USAF officer, Dr. Bob Jacobs, for leaking information pertaining to the nukes-related Big Sur UFO incident. As I have written elsewhere:
“Many years ago, I discovered that Kendrick Frazier was in fact employed—beginning in the early 1980s—as a Public Relations Specialist at Sandia National Laboratories, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Yes, the same Sandia Labs that has been instrumental to the success of America’s nuclear weapons program since the late 1940s, through its ‘ordinance engineering’ of components for bomb and missile warhead systems.
Interestingly, Skeptical Inquirer's publisher's statement, or ‘masthead’, which appears at the beginning of each issue, never once mentioned Frazier's employment at the highly-secretive, government-funded laboratory. Instead, the magazine merely listed, and continues to list, his profession as "science writer"—a reference to his having written several books and articles on various scientific subjects. Also curious is the fact that various online biographies on Frazier—including one written by himself—also fail to mention his two-decade tenure at Sandia Labs. An odd omission indeed.
Consequently, here is the situation: In what is arguably the most dramatic nuclear weapons-related UFO incident ever revealed [Big Sur], two former U.S. Air Force officers insist that one of our experimental nuclear warheads was actually shot down by a flying saucer. And who is responsible for publishing the first debunking article about the Big Sur incident, in which it is claimed that the UFO encounter never happened? Why, a PR guy working for the U.S. government’s nuclear weapons program!
It's always a wonder to me why it is that these individuals, who put themselves out there as rational, clear thinking, and skeptical, are so willfully ignorant of the UFO phenomena, while at the same time so willingly dismissive of anything related to UFO events.
We see things in the skies that are odd, at best. Forget ET for the moment, that's interpretation, personal belief. But the fact remains: there are unexplained objects in our skies. They emit mists and substances, they're small, they're huge, they operate in the open and yet secretively right in front of us. They're flying over populated areas, they're freaking people out. They're disrupting systems. (On this, on many levels, from the literal to the esoteric.)
And so, we ask: what are they, what are they doing, and why isn't anyone we put in control doing anything about them?
Those are rational responses.
So here's a point: if these UFOs are not ET, and if they are "just" us, meaning military/black ops/classified/private industry stuff, then the above questions remain. What are they, why are they, and what are they doing?!
An object I saw in my community, on a very good video taken by the witness (and seen by several others) ejected a mist of who knows what onto the apartment buildings below. And, it camouflaged itself; unless you were looking very carefully, you never would have known it was there. Okay, so it was ours. What the hell is our government/private industry doing to us? Maybe it's benign, maybe it isn't, but we won't find out if we don't investigate. I'm not comfortable with weird objects in the skies above me doing things that I don't know about, and, according to the uber-skeptoids of the world, am not supposed to question, because doing so means I'm irrational and lack critical thinking skills.
