Yahoo News disinfo on crop circles - truth vs the facts

I was really upset today when i watched this weeks feature on Yahoo News about crop circles - talk about disinformation!. Basically the video discredits the whole Crop circle phenomenon as it brings up the pathetic Dug and dave arguement  again (the 2 men from 1990 who came forward saying they created all the crop circles predating this time).  Obviously, someone hasn't done their research at Yahoo or they have been purposely been told to produce this biased work. Don't they know that the public can no longer be easily fooled anymore ?.

Its time we look again at the important arguement of determining fake crop circles from genuine ones. Most of the public have forgotten there is valid research which can separate both from each other.

As the public have not been told the full story about crop circles they often instantly disregard the whole phenomenon as the work of hoaxers. The media and the hoaxers over the years are responsible for the this biased opinion.  Once again, i would like people to remember the point of disinformation - 'to confuse but not necessarily disprove' - when you discredit the topic it becomes confusing and it just takes a few seeds of doubt for the public to drop interest it all-together. This is exactly they want to happen with crop circles,  but if you bother to look further and actually study crop circles you find out there is alot more going on here than just pretty shapes.

Information is a powerful tool, so lets look at the facts behind genuine crop circles:

According to Colin Andrews (who coined the term crop circle in 1980) over 90% of current crop circles are fakes, with 10% falling into the range of being classed as genuine. You can argue on this percentage , but the fact is there is a certain extent which can not be explained away by coventional means. 

With the advent of GPS and plotting decides more sophistated fakes have been able to have be created over the years.Yet still the genuine crop circles return as they have for over a thousand years (previously known as objects like the 'moving devil') , with recorded history going back to 800 AD in Wilshire UK - where the majority of crop circles still appear to this day.

Investigators, like Nancy Talbott of BLT Research, who continue to study the phenomenon and produce peer research papers on it, have actually documented crop circle characteristics that cannot be accounted for by men walking through wheat fields with boards strapped to their feet. 

Those characteristics include:

*Abnormal enlargement of cell wall pits in the bract tissue of crop circle plants
*Lateral and longitudinal enlargement, and bending and stretching of plant stem nodes in crop circle plants
*Stunting and malformation of seeds in crop circle plants
*Crystal growth in crop circle soil that, under laboratory conditions, could be achieved only at temperatures that would incinerate all plant matter
* Magnetic anomalies inside crop circles.

I could go on about this further but i suggest you  listen to Nancy's research below and her lectures on 'genuine' crop circles. Similarly, there are many other scientific studys about crop circles underway worldwide and so the phenomenon is not as easily explained away as Yahoo would like you to believe.

Amazing Tuscan Ufo Video from 11th July 2010

Very Interesting Ufo video from Tuscan. If you live in Tuscan and witnessed this sighting please reply to this post. We would like to know more about this sighting here at realUfos so your comments appreciated.

That Ufo report from Kota Kinabalu, Sabahin Malaysia

A New Ufo report in from Malaysia. I overlooked this one as a possible fake until i started to get multiple emails from people saying that they also saw it (but still we only have one photo submitted). If you live in the region and also saw this sighting in Sabahin Malaysia realUfos would like to hear your account - please respond to this post.
Article Report:
A Ufo was reported over   Kota Kinabalu holiday resort in Sabahin Malaysia. Apparently many people on the resort island spotted the strange round blue translucent disc, so it may not just be a camera trick:

One of the guests, Jemas Dungil, 27, told the tabloid that a woman shouted when she saw a round blue flying object in the sky:
“We came out of a hall to see what the commotion was all about and I saw a round blue disc in the sky.
“It turned green a few seconds later,” she said.

Several other guests and employees, who claimed to have also spotted the object, said it hovered in the air for a few minutes before disappearing.
Some even claimed that their handphones “went dead” when they tried to record the object with the devices.
Jemas said although she managed to capture a picture of the object, she did not believe that it was a UFO.
“What I saw was really extraordinary because it happened right in front of me,” she said.

Another witness, Donny Benedict, 29, said he did not believe in the existence of UFOs, but changed his mind upon watching the unusual sight. “I saw the object for about 20 seconds before it disappeared.
“It’s strange that it did not make any noise like a normal aircraft,” he said, adding that he regretted not being able to take a picture of the object with his handphone as it was out of battery.

New Ufo movie - Battle of Los Angeles

Keep an eye out for this new film hitting cinemas in 2011 - the Battle of Los Anegeles. Based on the true story of the real 1942 Ufo attack in Los Angeles which i have written about over the years  .
Hopefully the hollywood movie will bring some attention to one of America's most important (but long forgotten) Ufo incident of all time:

Movie Review:
The footage opens with a little background on the 1942 Battle of Los Angeles, when anti-aircraft artillery responded to reports of an unknown aircraft. It then switches to a more modern-day Los Angeles, clearly under enemy fire, although the nature of the fire isn't entirely clear. As the military evacuates LA, a Marine platoon is ordered to find a group of survivors and bring them back to the evacuation point. But time is short; the Armed Forces plan to bomb LA in just three hours, hoping to obliterate the invading army. The Marines clearly know little about these invaders, except that they are "not of this world."

Actual real news clippings from the Battle over Los Angeles back in 1942 :

Predating the Roswell incident in 1947 - americas most important Ufo incident - Just What was hovering above Los Angeles on February 25, 1942?'s Dara Brown has the story on this 65th anniversary of the 'Battle of L.A.':

The Battle of Los Angeles is the name given by contemporary news agencies to a sighting of one or more unidentified flying objects which took place from late February 24 to early February 25, 1942 in which eyewitness reports of an unknown object or objects over Los Angeles, California, triggered a massive anti-aircraft artillery barrage. The Los Angeles incident occurred less than three months after America's entry into World War II as a result of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The following are excerpts from the primary front page story of the LA Times on February 26th. Note that there is not a SINGLE description of the object even though is was clearly locked in the focus of dozens of searchlights for well over half an hour and seen by hundreds of thousands of people:

Army officer "if 1000 rounds  of ammunition can't bring one plane down then their not planes"

Army Says Alarm Real  Roaring Guns Mark Blackout

Identity of Aircraft Veiled in Mystery; No Bombs Dropped and No Enemy Craft Hit; Civilians Reports Seeing Planes and Balloon

Overshadowing a nation-wide maelstrom of rumors and conflicting reports, the Army's Western Defense Command insisted that Los Angeles' early morning blackout and anti-aircraft action were the result of unidentified aircraft sighted over the beach area. In two official statements, issued while Secretary of the Navy Knox in Washington was attributing the activity to a false alarm and "jittery nerves," the command in San Francisco confirmed and reconfirmed the presence over the Southland of unidentified planes

Relayed by the Southern California sector office in Pasadena, the second statement read: "The aircraft which caused the blackout in the Los Angeles area for several hours this a.m. have not been identified." Insistence from official quarters that the alarm was real came as hundreds of thousands of citizens who heard and saw the activity spread countless varying stories of the episode. The spectacular anti-aircraft barrage came after the 14th Interceptor Command ordered the blackout when strange craft were reported over the coastline. Powerful searchlights from countless stations stabbed the sky with brilliant probing fingers while anti-aircraft batteries dotted the heavens with beautiful, if sinister, orange bursts of shrapnel.

City Blacked Out For Hours

The city was blacked out from 2:25 to 7:21 am after an earlier yellow alert at 7:18 pm was called off at 10:23 pm. The blackout was in effect from here to the Mexican border and inland to the San Joaquin Valley. No bombs were dropped and no airplanes shot down and, miraculously in terms of the tons of missiles hurled aloft, only two persons were reported wounded by falling shell fragments. Countless thousands of Southland residents, many of whom were late to work because of the traffic tie-up during the blackout, rubbed their eyes sleepily yesterday and agreed that regardless of the question of how "real" the air raid alarm may have been, it was "a great show" and "well worth losing a few hours' sleep." The blackout was not without its casualties, however. A State Guardsman died of a heart attack while driving an ammunition truck, heart failure also accounted for the death of an air raid warden on duty, a woman was killed in a car-truck collision in Arcadia, and a Long Beach policeman was killed in a traffic crash enroute to duty. Much of the firing appeared to come from the vicinity of aircraft plants along the coastal area of Santa Monica, Inglewood, Southwest Los Angeles, and Long Beach.

In its front page editorial, the Times said: "In view of the considerable public excitement and confusion caused by yesterday morning's supposed enemy air raid over this area and its spectacular official accompaniments, it seems to The Times that more specific public information should be forthcoming from government sources on the subject, if only to clarify their own conflicting statements about it."
"According to the Associated Press, Secretary Knox intimated that reports of enemy air activity in the Pacific Coastal Region might be due largely to 'jittery nerves.' Whose nerves, Mr. Knox? The public's or the Army's?"

UK Prime Minister David Cameron & Obama discuss Ufo Hacker Gary McKinnon

What an amazing turn around Gary Mc Kinnon's case has taken over the last year!
Attention to his case has reached its height this week as both president Obama and UK prime Minister David Cameron addressed the issue during a press conference and explained that a resolve for his case is underway.
This goes to show that raising public attention to certain concerns works and can really have an impact on government law makers.
Information is a powerful tool - now if we can only apply this same type of pressure on the Ufo disclosure topic maybe we can make some progress.
Press conference video:

Back in 2006 when i first posted about this case, Mr Mckinnons story was obscure and ridiculed.
It became obvious that the US governments case against him was not just flawed  but highly suspicious. Gary's hacking attempts  could  surely not add up to $800000  worth of damage and it seemed that the charges were 'trumped up' to ensure he was made example of. Extradition for hacking is an unpredented action and it was more likely that it was the sensitive nature of the content what Gary was hacking into was the real reason for this harsh retaliation.

Gary said he was looking for evidence of Ufo's, some believe history was fabricated to gain sympathy - but the prosecutions own case against him does indeed confirm that he was caught hacking into NASA's Johnson's Space Center, the building which over the years many have considered as NASA's Ufo airbrushing lab.

With continued support online Mr Mckinnons story gained public awareness and the exposure became an embarrasing situation for the US government.

It has been some time so if you are not familar why Gary is called the "Ufo hacker" then read our previous posts which explain Gary's long battle against Extradition and why the case against him is not only unjust but highly suspicious.
Gary's Mum speaks to ITV

New BBC article extract
The computer hacker Gary McKinnon could avoid extradition to the US by serving time in a British prison, David Cameron suggested today after raising the issue in talks with Barack Obama.

Following his meeting in the White House, the prime minister told BBC Radio 5 Live that the government has discussed with US ambassador, the possibility of "some of the (sentence), if there is a prison sentence, being served in a British prison".

He said: "That is one potential outcome and I'll be working very hard to make sure that these things are discussed between the two governments. If we can reach a settlement then all to the good. I don't want to make a prediction because there are many difficult issues that have to be worked through."

His remarks suggest officials are nearing a deal to avoid McKinnon's extradition to the US, where he faces up to 60 years in prison. Last night, in his first remarks on the issue as prime minister, Cameron said McKinnon was accused of a "very important and significant crime", but hoped that "a way through" could be found.
Speaking at a White House press conference alongside Obama, Cameron added: "Clearly there is a discussion going on between the British and the Americans about this, but I don't want to prejudice those discussions."

Obama said a solution should be found within the law, but in the context of the "co-operative relationship" between the US and the UK.

"I trust that this will get resolved in a way that underscores the seriousness of the issue, but also underscores the fact that we work together. We can find an appropriate solution," the president said.

Amazing New Photo of Ufo over Hangzhou China + Xiaoshan airport staff speak

As the world waits for the Chinese military to provide some sort of explaination for the Ufo that closed  Xiaoshan Airport in  Hangzhou many further photos and videos are coming in of the large bright Ufo seen over the airport .  As usual we expect some flip flop story to be spun by the military within a week but we will keep you posted as this story develops. As this was a mass sighting numerous videos and photos are slowly making it out of China into the media.

Its seems that the ever increasing trend of Ufo sightings near airports may be building up to something, if you recall the last major airport incident happening back at Ohare airport in 2006.

Below new pictures come from a new report at looking at further new photos of the Ufo over Hangzhou and interviews with airport staff:
“There was an unknown object seen in the skies over the airport. So, according to our regulations, we had to close the airspace. Aircraftvmovements were suspended from 8:45 PM to 9:45 PM (on July 7, 2010).” - Ruan Zhouchang, Spokesperson, Xiaoshan Airport, Hangzhou, China

New Video of apparent Ufo taken from within aircraft that was diverted

Posters comments:
(apparent) New footage of UFO that closed Airport in China, taken from inside the plane that was diverted from the area. This is one of the UFO's that caused the closure of a busy airport in China last week. The authorities are still baffled and have not come up with an answer as to what this might be. The Government of China has gone completely silent over th incident. The Passenger that filmed this footage from his window seat on the plane wants to remain anonymous in fear of retribution from the Chinese Government.

The Story so far:
"In the past two weeks, China has had two major UFO sightings. The first, on July 7, was basically a glowing streak in the sky near Xiaoshan airport in Hangzhou, a city outside Shanghai. In the interests of passenger safety, airport authorities shut down operations for an hour, and eighteen planes were delayed.

Eight days later, on July 15, another UFO appeared in Chongqing, a city in eastern China. Described as "four lantern-like objects forming a diamond shape," the lights "hovered over the city's Shaping Park for over an hour." Whether or not China has recently become a destination spot for space travelers, its recent spate of unexplained celestial phenomena may say a great deal about its emerging place in the world -- and its plans for the future." Source

The Day Before Disclosure

Evidence gathered the last 60 years, from all over the globe, and in numbers by hundred thousands, point to the undeniable fact that we are not alone and never have been alone.

Politician claims EU Is Hiding 'Secret UFO Files'

This was news  over a month ago when Italian politician Mario Borghezio who is a member of the EU Parliament raised eyebrows with a June 14 EU declaration titled "On the Declassification of Documentation on UFOs," in which he called for a European UFO commission.

"Many members of the scientific community have been looking into the issue of UFOs and have denounced the systematic covering up of information on the subject," the declaration says.

Mario Borghezio's recent comments (about EU member states) have again attracted interest with him saying that "Yes, I know that some of them have secret UFO files,".

His tabled EU declaration is also gaining popularity:
"About 30 members of the European Parliament -- especially from Eastern Europe -- have signed my declaration, and it means they agree with me," he said.

"The EU member states, under the principle of transparency, have a duty to make public and available to all scientific data on UFOs which, today, are partially or wholly secret,"

It will be interesting to see the outcome after Oct. 14 which is the deadline for EU members to sign Borghezio's disclosure declaration.

Im really tempted to say this is a good fake done with the aid of GPS however i would like all your comments. Is the progression of crop circles into ever more sophisticated forms work of people with too much time on their hands or not? How can we tell the difference between genuine crop circles and fake ones when the hoaxes get more advanced every year?

Chinese Ufo reports continue in the media - still unsolved

The questions surrounding China's recent Ufos sightings still remain unsolved. The military is being tight lipped and the media continues to followup on further Ufo reports in China:

The first sighting occurred at Hangzhou's Xiaoshan Airport, in the eastern part of the country, according to the state-controlled Xinhua news agency.

Eighteen flights were delayed or rerouted and operations shut down after twinkling lights were spotted above the terminal around 9 p.m. July 7, the agency said. According to Xinhua, speculation has centered on a private aircraft. The state-run China Daily quoted a source saying the object had a military connection.

"No conclusion has yet been drawn," said Wang Jian, head of air traffic control with Zhejiang branch of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, and the investigation continues.

Purported photos of the unworldly object have appeared online and on YouTube.

Meanwhile, The Shanghai Daily reported a UFO appeared above the city of Chongqing on Thursday.

Witnesses said four "lantern-like objects forming a diamond shape" hovered for an hour above a park.

"I stared at it and it did not move," one resident told the newspaper. "After hovering for an hour, the thing started to fly higher and finally out of people's sight."
