Gov. Gavin Newsome Launching A PAC To Solve UFO Mystery?

Forbes  |  A team of political consultants and business leaders launched a political action committee Thursday dedicated to pushing the government to disclose more information on UFOs, weeks before Congress is set to receive a report on “unidentified aerial phenomena”—military jargon for what used to be known as unidentified flying objects—from U.S. intelligence agencies.

“We created the UFOPac because it has become clear to us that there may be more to this topic than governments are willing to share,” Fisher said in a statement. “UFOPac.org will help build a mass movement to share this with our elected representatives - regardless of party or political affiliation.” On its website, the group says that once “UFO phenomenon is verified by the government and available data is released” it will help academic and technology communities study the “technologies, physics, and mechanics of these crafts” without stigma.

Key Background

As part of the massive $2.3 trillion spending bill Congress passed in December, lawmakers instructed the director of national intelligence and secretary of defense to work together to deliver a report on “unidentified aerial phenomena.” Lawmakers gave intelligence officials 180 days to hand over the report to Congress, a deadline that comes next month. The legislation stipulates the report must offer “detailed analysis of unidentified aerial phenomena data and intelligence” and “a detailed description of an interagency process” to report sightings of UFOs. In March, former intelligence director John Ratcliffe told Fox News, “Frankly, there are a lot more sightings than have been made public.”, From 2007 to 2012, the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency gathered information on UFOs under a $22 million unclassified program sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.)  that the public was unaware of until 2017, when media outlets reported on it.

“There’s a stigma on Capitol Hill. Some of my colleagues are very interested in this topic and some kind of giggle when you bring it up,” Rubio added during his 60 Minutes interview.

Surprising Fact

Last April, the Pentagon released three unclassified videos of "unidentified aerial phenomena” shot by Navy pilots that were previously published by the New York Times in 2017. In one clip, an oblong object moves through the sky as a pilot yells, “Look at that thing, dude — it's rotating!"
