"Our Republic and its press will rise or fall together. An able, disinterested, public-spirited press, with trained intelligence to know the right and courage to do it, can preserve that public virtue without which popular government is a sham and a mockery. A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press will produce in time a people as base as itself. The power to mould the future of the Republic will be in the hands of the journalists of future generations."    Joseph Pulitzer

Critical Government Transparency Legislation Jeopardized by a Powerful Few In Congress

The Schumer-Rounds Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Disclosure Act is imperiled by a powerful few in the House and Senate.


By Daniel Sheehan, Founder of the New Paradigm Institute

On July 26th, 2023, retired US Air Force Intelligence Officer David Grusch provided sworn testimony to the US House Oversight Committee’s Sub-Committee on National Security that the government and certain private US government aerospace defense contractors have recovered – and are in present physical possession of – non-human craft and biologic evidence of a non-human intelligence ostensibly associated with this not-of-this-world technology.

One day after Grusch’s historic testimony, the US Senate passed the FY 2024 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that included a bipartisan amendment, the UAP Disclosure Act (UAPDA), that will establish a new nine-person “UAP Records Review Board” to be empowered by Congress with subpoena power and the power to exercise the government authority of eminent domain to extract every document, and every physical piece of evidence, about UAP. This legislation will task this new Board with the duty to present to the US President a “Controlled Disclosure Campaign Plan,” pursuant to which our government will be mandated to reveal to the public “as much as possible” about the UAP phenomenon that can be disclosed without jeopardizing national security.

The US House passed its own version of the NDAA without similar UAP transparency and disclosure measures. Now, the House and Senate are in conference, working through the differences in each chamber’s legislation to reconcile the NDAA in hopes of passing both chambers and signing it into law.

The UAPDA contained in the Senate’s NDAA is must-pass legislation. The amendment would finally shine a light on the investigations and findings the government has kept hidden from the public for over 75 years. As Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and his bipartisan colleagues said when announcing the amendment, keeping UAP records from the “public at large is simply unacceptable.”

However, self-interested forces inside the Pentagon, our intelligence agencies, and government contractor aerospace corporations are applying political and financial pressure on the Chairs and Members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Armed Services Committee, as well as the new House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to kill this legislation....................................
