Harry Reid Claims U.S. Government Covered Up UFO Evidence for Years

Former Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) says the U.S. government has worked for years to cover up evidence of possible close encounters with UFOs. 

Reid, who pushed for the creation of a classified, now-defunct U.S. government UFO program, said in The Phenomenon, a new documentary by director James Fox, that “there’s more than one up there.”

Most of the evidence the government has around UFOs “hasn’t seen the light of day,” he said.

“We have it — it’s there,” the 80-year-old said. 

He said the government “did everything they could” to stop the UFO program and “wanted nothing to do with this.”

“Nobody has to agree why it’s there. But shouldn’t we at least be spending some money to study all these phenomenon? Shouldn’t we study this stuff? The answer is yes. That’s all this was about,” he said.

“And why the federal government all these years has covered up, put brake pads on everything, stopped it. I think it’s very, very bad for our country,” he added.

In July, the former senator said on Twitter he had “no knowledge – and I have never suggested — the federal government or any entity has unidentified flying objects or debris from other worlds.”

“I have consistently said we must stick to science, not fairy tales about little green men,” he said then.

The documentary details a history of UFO sightings in the United States and globally, including the military-confirmed encounters off the coast involving U.S. Navy pilots.

He said there is a chance that they may have interfered with American weapons: The documentary tells the story of a 1967 report in which a UFO appeared over a U.S. missile base, at which time 10 of the missiles became inoperative.

“If they had been called upon by the president to launch, they couldn’t have done it,” Reid said. 

The former director of the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, Lue Elizondo, said The Phenomenon is “the most accurate and informative documentary ever made about UAPs.”

law firm gathering evidence for two class-action lawsuits

HALIFAX — A law firm representing the families of victims of the April mass shooting in Nova Scotia has hired a criminal investigation firm as it prepares two potential class-action lawsuits.

Halifax-based Patterson Law issued a statement Wednesday saying Martin and Associates Investigations will provide expertise about police procedures, crime scene analysis and related matters that may turn up evidence supporting the lawsuits.

One of the proposed class-action proceedings names the estate of the lone gunman who killed 22 people on April 18-19 during a 13-hour rampage that spanned several communities in northern and central Nova Scotia.

The second class-action, which names the RCMP and the Nova Scotia government, focuses on the police response to the killings.

“We are actively seeking the assistance of the public to provide information that may be relevant to the gunman’s actions and the law enforcement response to those actions,” lawyer Robert Pineo said in a statement. 

“The sole purpose of this investigative review is to uncover the truth; truth for the families and truth for the general public.”

The law firm also announced it has set up a Facebook page to solicit tips, documentation, photos and video from people who may have information about the crimes. The page is called “NS Mass Shooting Tip Page.”

Pineo said those who wish to remain anonymous can submit information directly to Martin and Associates, which is also based in Halifax.

Meanwhile, Patterson Law has confirmed it will represent all but three of the victims’ families in a federal-provincial public inquiry, which was announced in July.

Ashley Banjo Says Diversity Ofcom Complaints Are Evidence Of A Deeper Issue In British Society

Diversity troupe leader Ashley Banjo has said the controversy surrounding the group’s recent performance on Britain’s Got Talent, which reflected on the events of 2020, is indicative of a deeper issue in British society.

In the first semi-final show of this year’s BGT, Diversity returned to the stage to put on a powerful performance looking back at key moments in the year, including scenes alluding to the coronavirus pandemic, the killing of George Floyd and the ensuing global protests against police brutality.

While the routine won widespread praise at the time, it also led to more than 24,000 complaints being made to Ofcom, which the media regulator eventually dismissed.

Reflecting on the performance in a new interview with GQ Hype, Ashley admitted he was surprised at how much the Black Lives Matter-inspired section of the routine ended up being focussed on.

Asked about “that Diversity BLM performance”, Ashley explained: “I’m proud for it to be [called that], but it’s really interesting how you coined it our ‘BLM performance’, because it wasn’t.

“What I find the most incredible thing about all of this is that the Black Lives Matter element of the routine is the part that stuck with people, which, like I said, I can’t reiterate enough how much I’m proud of.

“But the performance itself was supposed to be a roundup of everything that we felt in the year; a summary of the things that have affected us… it was an idea of unity, the idea of hope. And obviously, as part of that routine, it would be impossible to ignore how much the Black Lives Matter movement, the idea of racism coming to the forefront of global attention, is present. It’s here and it’s right now.

“So in our summary of the year, it was impossible for me not to reflect upon it.”

Insisting he always had the full support of ITV, Ashley continued: “I said to them on the phone that week before, ‘This is what I think I’m going to do’. And they were great with it. That’s really important. They didn’t say anything until we turned up on the day. We turned up and we rehearsed.

“I think it was a bit of a shock for everybody [there]. Everyone was like, ‘Wow, this is where you’re going’. But as much as it was a shock, I don’t think as many people have ever taken me aside individually. The first run-through in rehearsal, people said they either were in tears or that it connected with them. That for me was so important.”

The Diversity performer was also asked whether he thought the complaints were a symptom of a “significant problem with British culture”.

“I think a significant problem is an idea of perspective, right?” Ashley said. “I feel like, to some people, there is a massively
