    If TRUTH is controversial...


    If Truth is controversial, does that mean we do not have the right to hear it?


    If truth could potentially undermine religion, economic models, hierarchy, social classes and "order", is that reason to censor what we, The People have access to?


    Who is the ultimate authority on what is best for me, you or anyone? Are we too delicate, too naive, too uneducated to understand the implications that may derive from " full" disclosure?


    These are just some of the questions being addressed at The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure.


    These proceedings take place April 29 - May 3, 2013 at The National Press Club ( with the hope and intention of calling for change on current governmental disclosure policy to the public. This event specifically is geared toward information related to UFO sightings and encounters, Ufology as a study and science and records of witness accounts of direct "alien" contact.


    The hearing committee panel consists of former Congresspersons and Senators which includes:


    Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (Rep., MD)
    Congressmen Merrill Cook (Rep., UT)
    Congresswoman Darlene Hooley (Dem., OR)
    Senator Mike Gravel (Dem/Lib., AK)
    Congresswoman Carolyn Kilpatrick (Dem., MI)
    Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey (Dem., CA)


    Among the 30+ witnesses scheduled to present eyewitness testimony, documentation and expertise are (in no particular order of either appearance or importance):


    Nick Pope (Former Ministry of Defense, UK)
    Daniel Sheehan JD
    Linda Moulton Howe
    Capt. Robert Salas (USAF, Ret.)
    Dr. Edgar Mitchell (NASA, Capt. USN, Ret.)
    Oscar Santa-Maria (Col. Ret., Peru)
    Dr. Sun Shili (People's Republic of China)
    Stanton Friedman (Canada)
    Full list of witnesses available at


    As Day 3 comes to a close, and reflecting on the various testimonies heard here thus far; from the Rockefeller Initiative and Bentwaters to Nuclear Tampering and official document submittals, and regardless of my individual opinion on the subject of UFOs, I can only state that this has been a fascinating, enlightening and unprecedented event.

    How the mainstream media dumbs down and makes a mockery of this issue is absolutely appalling. The implications of getting the thruth out about this would serve to make this world a cleaner safer place to live in for our children and grandchildren.

    Why is this not been covered?

    The scientific evidence they are putting forward alone deserves coverge, even for the sake of interesting debate, let alone having the potential as being the most historic news story in history.

    CNN and all other news media is under orders here, I think, for whatever reason not to report on this in a serious manner. It's most unfortunate how that truth embargo has been going on for so long, whatever the reason be it religion or a fear factor (much the same thing really), when this is all very real and the biggest subject in world history yet those pulling the strings have managed to have it...

    One wonders where 'the finest political news team on television' contrived to tuck-itself away during the recent utterly-unprecedented, brilliantly organized and conducted, 'Citizens Hearing On Disclosure'.

    This REALLY is news worthy. I have taken the time to listen to the playback of the Citizen Hearing and recommend it to everyone! Apparently it only takes one of the countries that testified to take it up with the U.N. (and they are not talking about going the U.N. Security Council that U.S. owns) This group is going get the global conference they need. CNN, report this!

    This is the biggest news ever!!  Why Isn't the media more committed? It is my belief and those of others, that official disclosure should have been made the  the World years ago.

    I firmly believe the literate among us have grown weary of  shallow lies spewed out the mouths of our elected leaders. If left this way, it's just a matter of time before civil unrest.

    EagleAZ, you're so right. The press is full of people high up making sure this info doesn't reach the masses, or only reaches the funny section that's how effectively we've been indoctrinated and conditioned over the years about UFOs that still thousands are witnessing, yet it's not seriously reported on because reporters on the ground aren't informed well enough. Instead (like MSN slamming Mike Gravel)...

    If you build the platform for our politicians to step on and change legislation, you can alter the course of history and rid the special interests thus cure yourself as well as all of us from the military industrial complex gang.

    Full disclosure is imminent. All main stream sources should be covering the biggest news in the world's history. We know why they are not. Alternative media and bloggers are now the main stream media and are gaining in popularity over the past decade. I have only one thing to say to all MSM reporters and networks. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU FOR NOT DOING YOUR JOB!

    Well, more to come in my next article on the subject. I am still waiting for direct CNN feedback and perhaps I will post my full article here. The next article would fall on deaf ears, however, if the current article is being "held back" from true CNN acknowledgment; but it will be submitted shortly and I would love to give CNN the opportunity to cover it.

    This subject is extremely relevant and...

    I don't see the typical media tactics, of acting like it's a big joke, drawing attention from the FACTs by acting like an idiot over the subject matter like some of the reports I've seen. However I must say this article falls way short of being investigative and/or informative. We need investigative reporting not comic relief or minimum efforts. I would think with all the evidence that was shown at the...

    Seems so strange to see a serious news gathering information feed us tabloid fluff and ignore a story with incredibly, unbelievably far reaching ramifications for all of humanity.  Please answer us.  Are you going to ridicule, ignore or actually investigate these phenomenon and this story seriously?

    Let the Truth come the Veil of Darkness come down!  The Power Elite must be hacked away, eliminated forever, so we can have true peace and real freedom!  But first, we must forgive those who were threatened to keep these things secret. Remember, they have families, too.  Then, and only then, do I believe those kept under the thumb of these "Powers" will feel relief from persecution...

    All major news agencies should be repoting this. If the military is concerned that we will think that they will not or cannot control whatever is in our skies, they are right. Any civilization that is hundreds, thousands or millions of years more advanced than we are, then we cannot protect our skies from them. Compare our technology now to what we had even 100 years ago. If our military ran into a...

    40 ex military officers and enlisted men, an FAA supervisor, an ex Minister of Defence (Canada), an ex member of the UK's Ministry of Defence, additionally, former presidents, governors, congressmen, current scientists, police officers, doctors, lawyers and pilots have all seen UFO's. They're either lying, hallucinating, or telling the truth. With at least 200 billion galaxies out there (and possibly even...

    This should have been covered back over ten years ago with Dr. Steven Greer's first Disclosure Project attempt. More and more prominent people will be coming out as science and society come to grips with our childhood's end.
