There are UFO cases both known and unknown which have gripped the curiosity of many ufologists and experiencers worldwide within the field and tugged their interest and fascination. In the first half of the show, British UFO researcher Jason Gleaves joined Richard Syrett (Twitter) to share such encounters of high strangeness and the unexplained. Gleaves related an account of an incident that occurred at his base, RAF Cosford, where in March 1993 a guard witnessed something hovering over the air field and radioed for assistance. "When they all got there they all saw the same thing, which was a large dark triangular-shaped craft... they all described it to be the size of a battleship," he reported. The same UFO was reported at another RAF installation as well as witnessed by civilians, he added.
Gleaves recounted a UFO story he described as a real 'War of the Worlds' encounter because of the UFOs striking resemblance to the other-worldly vehicles in the classic alien invasion movie. The incident took place on August 15, 1972 in Japan where two 19-year-old university students noticed something strange in the sky above an active volcano. The object, which was firing lasers at the volcano and flying in a zigzag pattern, was photographed several times by the students, Gleaves disclosed. "The [UFO] is clearly moving in the sky under intelligent control," he said, adding its proximity to an active volcano rules out it being a conventional aircraft.
Gleaves shared his own UFO sighting which he had with his sister when they were children visiting relatives in Liverpool in the mid-1970s. "We both witnessed a silver disc-shaped object hovering outside the bedroom window," he recalled, noting the UFO did not look like anything they had ever seen before and took off at high velocity. He also spoke about his work analyzing photographs and video footage of UFOs. Gleaves revealed he utilizes photo editing software filters to examine and bring out details in the images in order to determine potential authenticity. He estimated between 70 to 80 percent of UFO images are known objects.
A handful of plutocratic elites have profited on an unfathomable scale through corporate welfare and other perks. Unimaginable salaries and bonuses for the One Percent, contrasted with layoffs and reduced pay for the majority of the workforce, along with increasing calls for austerity measures and lowered standards of living, has become the "new normal" in America. During the latter part of the program, researcher Don Jeffries (Twitter) argued this record economic inequality is more than an unintended consequence of globalism, showing how the consolidation of wealth may well prove to be the greatest conspiracy of all.
Jeffries described himself as a populist who shares the philosophy of former Louisiana governor Huey Long who though only the first million dollars of income (about $12 million in today's dollars) should be exempt from taxation. "I believe there is unimaginable wealth that we don't even know in these tax-free foundations that have never been audited," he suggested. According to Jeffries, the economic system of the United States is rigged in favor of the super-rich. As an example, he pointed to the pandemic and rules which forced mom-and-pop stores to close while large retailers remained open. If it was for public safety, why were the large stores where crowds can gather allowed to be open, Jeffries questioned, noting how this shows exactly where the wealth was going.
Numerous small businesses closed and were never able to reopen, and that business went to the large companies, he continued, adding that PPP loans from the stimulus package ended up bailing out rich celebrities. Jeffries described what happened during the pandemic as the greatest transfer of wealth in history. "You can't have a first-world economy when you have half the country that has nothing... the bottom fifty percent of America has less than one percent of the collective wealth," he explained. Jeffries believes politicians from both sides have created the problem and they are likely not the ones who can fix it. Proposals to tax the so-called rich will only lead to further destruction of the middle class while the upper tier is never touched, he said.
