Disclosure Theater

The Senate’s Watergate hearings made for riveting TV. The Cosmic Watergate of UAP reality will spawn hearings that will blow them away. Coming soon to a screen near you.

The Congressional Hearings to Come

When it comes to UAP/UFO reality, the Congress seems on an eventual path to multiple committee hearings in both the Senate and the House, under the guise of national security, the issue that’s unlocked support in high places.

Military pilots and radar operators will play a key role in these early ones. Scores more witnesses to sightings will come in. This stage of testimony will be focused on threat. Why do these objects buzz our Carrier Strike Forces, shut off our nuclear weapons, and show such an interest in our military capabilities?

These hearings, once they exhaust the possibility of…


The Politics of Disclosure

The U.S. government has confirmed that UFOs are real but truly unknown. Will the DNI report explain who makes them?

STATUS: The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has demanded an unclassified UAP report by June 25, 2021. It will be a huge test of UFO transparency and openness for the Biden Administration.

The Senate Intelligence Committee called for the Director of National Intelligence and the Secretary of Defense to put together a report on UAP activity within 180 days of the enactment of the Intelligence Authorization Act. Buried inside that massive bill filled with dry legislative language was this:

“The Committee supports the efforts of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force at the Office of Naval Intelligence to standardize collection…


Estimate of the Situation

Everything old is new again. A “smoking gun” of the UFO era, the Twining Memorandum, written in 1947, is more relevant than ever. It says UFOs are real and that we don’t make them.

United States Air Force General Nathan Farragut Twining was a very big deal. During World War Two, he was considered an outstanding commander of bombing operations in both the European and Pacific theaters. After the war, then Lieutenant General Twining was named Commanding General of the military’s Air Materiel Command, working with the Air Technical Intelligence Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. It was in this esteemed capacity that he was asked to write a secret memo about UFOs in 1947 for Brigadier General George Schulgen, Chief of the Air Intelligence Requirements Division at the Pentagon.

Twining put his name…


No Time Like the Present

Despite the past year’s history of pandemic, protests and politics, now is still the right time to end the UFO cover-up.

Times are tough. Just over a year ago, the coronavirus sent us indoors to watch the number of victims skyrocket and the economy crater. Even as we start to return to our normal lives, there are reminders everywhere about what a deeply divided nation America now is. We can’t agree on vaccines, social justice, border policy, or even who got elected in the last election.

Demanding to be dealt with are the existential challenges of climate disasters, species extinctions, poverty, refugees and nuclear proliferation. We have issues of war and peace with Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, at minimum.

Stroke of Midnight

How being over-caffeinated in the middle of the night on live radio can focus a mind as few other broadcast experiences can.

These days it’s safe to say that midnight is usually past my bedtime. If you’re the second half guest on Coast-to-Coast AM, however, that’s when you’re just getting started.

In order for things to work out optimally, it’s all about peaking properly. That means a good night’s sleep the night before, a nap in the afternoon, drink some water, eat a light dinner, maybe watch a little TV from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Then comes the first cup of coffee and maybe half a sandwich.

NOTE: Bryce will appear as George Knapp’s second guest on Sunday night’s show, June…


Breaking News

The New York Times has senior government sources talking about what’s in the UAP report that’s coming soon. They can’t say that UAP/UFOs are alien, but they can’t say they’re not either.

The New York Times has sources that lay out the essence of what they think will be the UAP report scheduled to be delivered to Congress later this month. It doesn’t connect every dot that people in the know are ready to connect, but it’s not a whitewash either. The Times headline reads:

U.S. Finds No Evidence of Alien Technology in Flying Objects, but Can’t Rule It Out, Either


Fire in the Sky

In 1975, Travis Walton claimed he was abducted for five days. For nearly fifty years, his story has been sensationalized and commercialized but it’s still one of the best cases ever.

It’s been almost 46 years since a young forestry worker named Travis Walton was allegedly struck by a beam of blue light in front of six co-workers while thinning trees in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests near the small town of Snowflake, Arizona.

The case is famous for a variety of reasons:

  • The UFO was seen at close range by six people besides Walton.
  • Walton disappeared for five days during which his co-workers were suspected of murder.
  • Over the years, Walton and the rest of the crew all appear to have passed lie detector tests, many of them multiple times.
  • It…


Estimate of the Situation

We have collected our Trail of the Saucers articles and essays that deal with the upcoming UAP report. One POV does not fit all.

The UAP Report is due for delivery to the Senate and House Intelligence and Armed Forces committees no later than June 25, 2021. It could come earlier, or it could be delayed. It’s such a highly important and anticipated document, however, that Trail of the Saucers editor Bryce Zabel and senior contributors Carolyn Brouillard and Mark Hammons have all been compelled to write about it more than once.


Thought Experiment

Imagine the speech that President Biden could give in advance of the UAP report’s delivery to Congress. It’s his historic chance to be the Disclosure president.

The White House, East Room, Next Month, 9 p.m. ET

My Fellow Americans

This is not a speech I ever expected to give. Not tonight. Not anytime.

Yet to ask another person in my Administration to deliver this message is to let you down, to fail to do my duty.

Being President of the United States carries with it many responsibilities. The most important one, I believe, is to be accountable to the citizens of this country and to tell them the truth.

Tonight I will do that. I’ll look you in the eye and tell you the truth as I know it…
