Paranormal Study Reference Articles
June 2019 was another month where UFO news dominated the paranormal spectrum. The History Channel aired the six-part show “Unidentified.” New Navy UFO reporting protocols (not currently being released to the public) were put in place. The heads of US government including the President, Senate and Congress were briefed on UFOs by the military. There was what has been called the most important UFO leak of all time, the “Core Stash” documents. It is getting to the point where so much information is flowing into the public realm from government sources that the word “disclosure” is on the tongue on many ufologists, while others see this as a possible government leak using TTSA and the media to keep people off the track of military advancements. Time will hopefully tell.
“I would say remain skeptical. Healthy skepticism is very important; in fact, it’s imperative. In fact, in my job as an intelligence officer, I was paid to be skeptical. I think you should always question all the information that comes before you by anybody who says anything, and I think that’s true not just with people like me, I think it’s true with government, religion, and everything in between.”– Luis Elizondo, former head of AATIP and member of TTSA
