Disclosure Updates / Coast Guard UFO Sightings

Wednesday - May 19 2021

Stephen Bassett, Joseph Foster

In the first half, disclosure lobbyist and truth seeker Stephen Bassett shared updates in the disclosure field, including what to expect in the upcoming report on UAP to the Senate Intel Committee. The report that's due in June (initiated by Senator Marco Rubio) is more of an evaluation than an investigation, and it's going to be part of a much larger process, he suggested. We are finally "in the last weeks and months of a truth embargo," he believes, and further, it's likely that congressional or public hearings on UFOs/UAP will be convened with a particular focus on national security issues. Ultimately, because of the hearings (potentially seen by millions of people), the "President will be in a position to confirm the ET presence in a comfortable way," he projects.

This current phase of disclosure was kicked off in 2017 with the To the Stars Academy (TTSA) formation, which included ex-Pentagon and DOD officials like Luis Elizondo and Christopher Mellon, and then followed by the New York Times articles, he cited. Elizondo, Mellon, and Steve Justice recently left TTSA because it may be easier for them to deal with congressional staffers without being part of a specific organization, Bassett speculated. For the hearings, in addition to military witnesses, he thinks those who work in the secretive defense contract industry could also be included, and this may be facilitated by Justice, who was formerly a director at Lockheed's Skunk Works. "The testimony from the military witnesses will virtually confirm...beyond a reasonable doubt, that some of this phenomena is off-world," he added.


Retired senior technology executive Joseph Foster has compiled a lifetime of paranormal sightings and experiences, including many stories from his time in the military. In the latter half, he discussed his UFO and USO (unidentified submerged object) sightings, as well as areas like the Bermuda Triangle and the Devil's Sea that are prone to strange anomalies. As a member of the US Coast Guard, he was stationed between Hawaii and Japan during July-August 1969. On a deck watch on the ship bridge, he was alerted that targets were closing in on the ship, flying in formation at a staggering 3,500 mph (picked up on radar). They saw three bright white objects that flew above the vessel and then disappeared over the horizon.

Foster described a USO-type sighting south of Da Nang, Viet Nam when his ship was anchored, and some of the team were on a swim call. Again on a bridge watch, they noticed an enormous black teardrop-shaped object briefly coming up from underneath the ship, estimated to be around 100 ft. long and 35 ft. wide (too big to be a whale, most likely). Observing UFOs with the naked eye in daylight, he noticed there wasn't the distortion around them that is often picked up in photos. An energy field could surround such craft, Foster postulated-- using a drive or propulsion that distorts the time and space around it, similar to what may be going on with the 'Tic Tac' UFO and its potential use of metamaterials.

So interesting, many thanks

At least in North America, there has been a ton of press about UFOs. 60 Minutes did a piece about the subject last weekend, which is apparently kind of a big deal. So it seems something is brewing, but I won't necessarily hold my breath for some huge government-approved UFO disclosure coming this summer. But I guess we will have to wait and see...

Oh, thanks, I didn't know that
Think it is this one:[eztv-re]-t...

Interesting, Marco Rubio compelled a report to be drawn up for the US Senate by next month.
I actually thought we would have seen more of Rubio in the 2016 election. Maybe this is part of his long game ?

Yeah, there is a lot of hype surrounding this report coming out next month. Some people like Stephen Bassett think it will lead to Congressional Hearings on the subject of UFOs. People like Steven Greer think it is leading up to a "false flag" military scenario - a plan that has been 7 decades in the making. Some people like Jacques Vallee is more skeptical and seems to think it will not lead up to much change.

I thought about uploading the 60 Minutes program here. I watched it - it was pretty good, a serious take on UFO sightings by military personnel. The same stories that broke with the NY Times etc back in 2017 as a result of Luis Elizondo and the To The Stars Academy's efforts. And now apparently Elizondo has been threatened with his security clearances being revoked by the Pentagon because he has left TTSA, so he has hired The Disclosure Project's attorney Daniel Sheehan for legal help. And The Disclosure Project has always believed that Elizondo was government disinformation on the subject of UFOs to perpetuate the military plan of a false flag "alien threat". So Sheehan is going to try to get Eilzondo to come clean about that etc. It's a real UFO drama going on right now!

Sure, "deadcatting" -- that's partly what I meant by Rubio's longgame (and/or the interests for which he represents).

Even so, what *isn't* a decoy or distraction these days? One man's truth is another man's distraction. That's how it goes (♫ everybody knows :)

There are most certainly games and competing factions when it comes to this subject. It's confusing even to those who follow it closely! I can hardly imagine what everybody else thinks...

As a side note, I have noticed that The Pirate Bay tracker and ConCen tracker are not tracking or displaying seeders and downloaders properly any longer here on ConCen. It says only 10 people have downloaded this, but my seedbox has uploaded to around 40 different peers. No big deal really, though...

ConCen has been tracking peers the same way for many years.

The stats are updated frequently (much more than other trackers) by scraping each of the announces listed. If the ConCen tracker application (Opentracker) resets its download count to zero (which it does every time the server restarts), I preserve its previous count. This makes the download count reported for the ConCen tracker as accurate as I can get it. If my software says the ConCen download count is x, that means that since the torrent was uploaded (which could be years), x clients reported to the ConCen tracker that they finished the torrent.

I won't be responsible for what other tracker scrapes report. When their tracker software resets the download count, I don't preserve the previous value. The effort to write the code that tried to keep an accurate historic total download for outside trackers is not worth the reward, IMO. Certainly not with this PHP/Drupal code base.

If your seedbox has uploaded more copies than ConCen is reporting, it's because of any combination of:

  1. announces are resetting their download counts
  2. announces are in your announce list which aren't in ConCen's announce list
  3. your box is using DHT or other mechanisms that distributes swarm info without using announces

I will not add features to this version of ConCen. Writing the thousands of lines of code that makes up the site you see here, using the Drupal platform, has made me hate PHP far more than I did before! ConCen's next version will use a proper language.

I chose Drupal initially because I thought it would be faster, and the modules I wrote would be easy and useful for others to install. Getting a quick and dirty site up was much faster, but going from there to what you see now was painful. I decided that to make it easier for others to easily build a Drupal bittorrent site, I would code using their module system. It became apparent that it would require building not one, but at least a dozen optional modules built off a couple of core ones. I acheived this, but it's far from release ready.

The "Drupal Way" is a clusterfuck of bad platform design decisions that get in the way of writing clean, robust, efficient code. It tries to do too much using a language that isn't powerful enough. Later versions of Drupal and PHP are better, but there's too much legacy cruft weighing it down.

Then I realized if I released the code, having to support it (Drupal attracts lots of people who shouldn't be running web sites) would drive me insane. I would be forced to abandon it (as many others have done) to remain sane. Drupal is plagued by badly written and/or unsupported modules.

I don't want to propagate plague. If one of you out there is willing to maintain it, maybe I'll reconsider...

Oh wow, thanks for the reply. I am almost certain it is the scraping related to TPB that is not entirely accurate with the amounts of peers etc. When I use just ConCen I know it works fine. I should look into multi-tracking torrents better. I know some people add a whole bunch of other trackers...

Even though I add some other trackers, and I see that downloads are occurring, I have no idea where or how they are seeing my uploads... They never appear on any of the sites I use to download. It's bizarre

I know with my 2 separate trackers I use to make torrents, I upload individually to ConCen and also to The Pirate Bay because I also have an account there. I always assumed some announce tracker URLs you could add to the torrent and it would just show up on those sites or on Google. But I think a lot of them you have to upload the torrent manually and do it like how it is done here on ConCen. I haven't really kept up with all of the public trackers. There are so so many!

Well, that's been my frustration because none of the torrent sites I use allow me to upload anything, except for the mighty Concen.

So one of you technites out there, can you kindly explain how to find out exactly where one's torrents are appearing (since, evidently, others are downloading them somewhere)?

The following trackers all show that downloads have occured, but I cannot actually locate where people are seeing these "announced":

kudos for the Leonard Cohen reference!

I just recently re-watched Christian Slater in "Pump Up the Volume". It's worth watching it, just for how they sample that Cohen song, but I also really liked the fact that the Internet totally destroyed the vibe of that film. It just cannot happen anymore. I also paused it and looked closely at all the music he was playing and listening to. Interesting 1990 piece.
