We Have UFO Footage!

The Pentagon has confirmed that images leaked to the press in 2019 do show unidentified vehicles flying over U.S. airspace. These Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs), harassed at least three U.S. warships during military exercises. The footage of three pyramid shaped UAPs was leaked in July 2019 and showed the unidentified objects hovering above the USS Russell off the San Diego coast.

The video was leaked to documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell. “This is probably the best UFO military filmed footage certainly that I’ve ever seen,” Corbell told FOX News, “but I think also that the world has ever seen.” Former intelligence director John Ratcliffe also has watched the video. He says these UAPs move at speeds that are impossible using the modern technology of Earth. Sometimes, the way these things move can’t even be explained.

the UAPs can be seen traveling from space to earth to sea without being destroyed. After witnessing one UAP plunge into the sea, the Navy sent a submarine to find the wreckage. Nothing was found.

UFO enthusiasts are calling for the government to open research files and admit there are indeed unidentified flying objects – whether from outer space or our own backyard.

“UFOs are real, and they are here, but we don’t know who they are or the intent,” Corbell said. “That’s no longer a question. You have just not been paying attention.”

2021 Olympic Uniforms Spark Discussion

The new uniforms for the U.S. and Canadian teams have been revealed ahead of the 2021 Olympic games in Tokyo. Are they too casual? Are they too white and crisply boring? Or are they perfect for an Olympic ceremony that was delayed due to the worldwide pandemic? These questions are all over social media.

Ralph Lauren has been the U.S. team’s designer since 2008. For the 2021 games, 600 Team USA athletes have a white uniform with red and blue accents and the U.S. flag displayed on shirts and jackets, along with the symbolic embroidered image of the polo player and pony of the Ralph Lauren brand.

“Every four years, Ralph Lauren does its best to dress up our greatest athletes in the most swagless outfits possible,” one angry journalist tweeted – but the cool factor isn’t what the designer was going for. It was a more socially conscious decision.

David Lauren, son of the founder, told reporters that the company opted for more “sustainable materials” and “manufacturing processes.”

Canada went with denim again, with messages that look like graffiti. Their uniforms were designed by Levi Strauss – a U.S. company – and Hudson’s Bay of Ontario. Sports journalist Jenna Harner tweeted, “Ahhh yes, Canada going with the ‘20-something girl at brunch’ lewk for the closing ceremonies this Olympics.”

It just proves once again that you can’t please everybody.

A Symbolic Withdrawal of Troops

President Joe Biden is withdrawing all U.S. troops from Afghanistan on September 11. That’s 20 years to the day after the attack on U.S. soil that led to what is now the longest war in American history.

The U.S. military invaded Afghanistan in October 2001 to destroy the Taliban and al-Qaeda, terrorist groups believed to be behind the September 11 attack that killed nearly 3,000 Americans.

The U.S. also spent billions of dollars in aid to help Afghanistan rebuild. The goals were simple: Remove al-Qaida, remove the Taliban, take out all groups of terrorists, and establish civil protections.

Retired Gen. Colin L. Powell agrees with the decision to leave Afghanistan: “I wouldn’t say enough is enough.” Powell was the leader of the State Department during the September 11 attacks and the beginning of the U.S. war in Afghanistan. “I’d say we’ve done all we can do … What are those troops being told they’re there for? It’s time to bring it to an end.”
