Citizen Hearing On Disclosure
April 29 to May 3, 2013
National Press Club, Washington, DC
"If the Congress won't do its job,On Sunday, 28 April, I received notification of the Citizen Hearing On Disclosure
the people will."
the people will."
that could be seen world-wide in live streamingvideo April 29 To May 3, 2013 – Washington, DC.
The conference far exceeded my expectations. It contained information from 40 credible witnesses many of whom (especially scientists, engineers and ex-spooks) spoke in terms that resonated in my deepest levels. This event was nothing less than revolutionary.
Nevertheless, there was one credible living witness noticeably missing, who could have given unimpeachable personal testimony on the experiences of George Adamski. I will be exploring this discrepancy as this thread evolves.
Nuclear Weapons Facilities and Extraterrestrial Incursions at the National Press Club The Citizen Hearing: Days One and Two. Edited Press Release:
Washington, DC - The second day of the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure has come to a close with extraordinary testimony taken by six former members of Congress regarding events and evidence pointing to an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.
On day one, Monday, some of the top researchers in the field testified to Senator Mike Gravel, Congressmen Roscoe Bartlett, Merrill Cook and Congresswomen Lynn Wolsey, Carolyn Kilpartick, Darlene Hooley. One panel of witnesses, which included Stephen Bassett, Grant Cameron, Linda Moulton Howe and Dr. Steven M. Greer, addressed the history of the Rockefeller Initiative - a three year effort by Laurence Rockefeller, a friend of the Clintons - to convince President Clinton to release to the public all documents in government files relating to unidentified flying objects and grant amnesty to members of the military services and government agencies who come forward with relevant information.
Mr. Bassett testified that those who were aware of and/or directly involved in this effort included President Clinton, Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, Leon Panetta, Albert Gore and Bill Richardson. In a later interview Bassett added, "President Clinton remains a major figure in the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton sought the presidency and was appointed Secretary of State by President Obama, John Podesta went on in 2002 and 2003 to call for the release of all government held "UFO" files and was appointed co-chair of President Elect Obama's transition team, Leon Panetta was appointed Secretary of Defense and Director of the CIA by President Obama, Bill Richardson stated in 2004, "the mystery surrounding this crash (Roswell 1947) has never been adequately explained -- not by independent investigators, and not by the U.S. government." Richardson then sought the presidency and was selected by Obama to be Secretary of Commerce (he withdrew his nomination.)"
Bassett also stated,"None of these powerful political figures have ever been asked a single question by the press regarding the Rockefeller Initiative."
On day two, Tuesday, Air Force personnel testified regarding what some call "England's Roswell." Sgts. John Burroughs and Jim Penniston were directly involved in the 1980 events near RAF Bentwaters in the UK when an incursion over several nights occurred at this nuclear installation by a craft of unknown origin. This case is considered one of the most important in the modern era.
Perhaps the most powerful testimonies of the day came from retired United State Air Force personnel, Capts. Robert Salas, Bruce Fenstermacher, David Schindele and Sgt. David Scott who gave compelling first hand accounts of the shutting down of ballistic missiles by unknown craft hovering over nuclear launch sites in the United States, one of which was the Minot AFB in North Dakota, in December 1967. Another was at Travis AFB in 2010. Similar, earlier events are the Echo and Oscar Flight shut downs in early 1996. Also, craft were observed hovering above the Hanford AEC plant in Washington state on 8 August 1950. Several members of the Citizen Hearing Committee called for formal Congressional hearings into these incidents.[Note: in a separate report referred to me by the daughter of T. Townsend Brown, a Soviet documentary called "Men in Black", revealed by Russian President Medvedev in a news conference in late 2012, this same kind of phenomenon took place in the USSR in the late 1950s (?) when several craft of unknown origin were seen hovering over the 50th RVSN Division in the Carpathian District and activated the system of nuclear missiles. None of the operators could countermand this activation. All equipment was totally blocked. Only when the UFOs left could the facility operators regain control of their system. Provocation from USA was not even considered.]
On Day three, Wednesday: A.M.
AIR FORCE FIRST RESPONDERS TO ANNOUNCE PLANS FOR FEDERAL LAWSUIT
Allege conspiracy to deny benefits for injuries sustained in the line of duty. By Patrick Frascogna
WASHINGTON, D.C., April 30, 2013 – Two career United States Air Force veterans announced their intention to file a federal lawsuit against the Veterans Administration in an effort to obtain medical benefits to remedy injuries sustained in the line of duty at a press conference at the National Press Club on Tuesday.
Retired Tech Sergeants John Burroughs and James Penniston claim the government is denying them proper treatment for injuries sustained in the line of duty as base security at the U.S. airbase at RAF Bentwaters in December of 1980. Penniston and Burroughs were the first on-scene responders to a potential base incursion by an object of unknown origin into one of the most sensitive United States Air Force installations at the height of the cold war. As such, the pair were momentarily on the front lines of the USAF defense establishment in Europe...
"We don't intend to be the last two casualties of the Cold War", Burroughs said, "left hung out to dry by our chain of command and obsolete notions of national security. There is no reason at this late date to deny us the information that may extend our lives, the bulk of which we spent in service to our country."Wednesday: P.M. Roswell incident...
On day four, Thursday:
Witnesses from South America such as Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Bolivia gave testimony in the morning. Other countries such as China, Australia, France and Italy gave testimony in the afternoon of UFO sightings and interaction with space people, especially People's Republic of China who claimed to be descendants of space people.
On day five, Friday:
By far the most important and credible speaker-witnesses so far for me are investigative reporters Linda Moulton Howe and Richard P. Dolan. Close seconds are physicist Robert Wood, Ph.D. and physician Steven Greer, M.D..
In the second and last session Stephen Bassett spoke of the need for a single official statement from world governments: "We are not alone!" He also spoke of the need for new language, citing terms such as "UFO" and "cover up"as examples of stereotypes needing revision. Instead of "UFO" consider "extraterrestrial phenomena" (ETP?). Instead of "cover up" consider "truth embargo", etc. And with governmental acknowledgement, we could then use the term "exopolitics", etc.

There is to be a press release communique given and signed by the panel of former Congressional members on Monday, May 6, 2013.
Monday, 6 May 2013: excerpt from The Oakland Tribune:
"The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race will attempt to accomplish what the Congress has failed to do for 45 years -- seek out the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time," according to the hearing's website.
Besides Woolsey, also plumbing the final frontier's mysteries this week are former U.S. Sen. Mike Gravel, D-Alaska, and former Reps. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md.; Merrill Cook, R-Utah; Darlene Hooley, D-Ore.; and Carolyn Kilpatrick, D-Mich.
The multiday hearing, which started Monday and ends Friday, promises testimony from about 40 researchers and military/agency witnesses and is being live-streamed in English and Spanish...
The event was organized by the Paradigm Research Group -- a UFO conspiracy-theory group in Bethesda, Md., founded by activist Stephen Bassett, which invited the former lawmakers to use their House-honed skills in interviewing witnesses.
The White House in November 2011 answered a pair of petitions seeking disclosure of information on extraterrestrial life -- including a petition launched by Bassett -- by stating "the U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye."On Wednesday, 9 May 13, the following release was issued:

Citizen Hearing on Disclosure Committee Seeks UN World Conference on Possible Extraterrestrial Presence
Washington, DC – On May 3, 2013 members of the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure Committee and Hearing witnesses representing ten UN member nations met at the National Press Club to draft a statement seeking United Nations review of evidence of a possible extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. The result is the following communiqué:
Citizen Hearing on Disclosure
WashingtonCommunique May 3, 2013
From April 29, 2013 to May 3, 2013 researchers, activists, political leaders, and former members of military services and government agencies representing ten countries gave testimony in
to six former members of the United States Congress. After hearing this testimony these members issue the following statement: Washington, DC
Whereas: given the unfolding scientific understanding of the number of potentially life supporting planets within Earth's home galaxy, it would be the height of arrogance to assert that humans are the only sentient beings within that galaxy;
Whereas: given that credible witnesses have brought forth overwhelming scientific evidence documenting the current presence of unidentified and unexplained aerial craft that many believe to reflect an extraterrestrial intelligence;
And Whereas: given the enormous global implications if these craft are, indeed, of extraterrestrial origin, such an issue is a matter for the General Assembly of the United Nations;
Therefore, we the undersigned request the Citizen Hearing Foundation use its offices to organize interested parties and raise the funds necessary to pursue a global campaign to convince one or more nations to propose a resolution within the General Assembly calling for United Nations sponsorship of a world conference addressing the possible evidence for an extraterrestrial presence engaging this planet.
We the undersigned pledge our support for this effort.
Congresswoman Carolyn Kilpatrick;Senator Mike Gravel; Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey; Congressman Merrill Cook; Congresswoman Darlene Hooley [Unable to sign due to postemployment restrictions on Congressional Members and officers.]; Congressman Roscoe Bartlett [Unable to sign due to post-employment restrictions on Congressional Members and officers.]
The Citizen Hearing Foundation is a pending 501(c)3 non-profit, which will launch its website later this month and immediately begin raising funds to pursue nation sponsors for a resolution to the UN General Assembly.
On 9 May 2013 the British on-line newspaper Telegraph.com published a report titled "Money and Britons join US quest for truth about UFOs".
