RICHARD DOLAN IS one of the world’s leading UFO researchers. He delivered this now-classic statement at the Citizens Hearing on Disclosure at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., before six retired members of the U.S. Senate and Congress.

“I’ve often felt that disclosure on the matter of UFOs and possible ETs is a paradox. It is impossible, but it is inevitable. Impossible because there is no political motivation for it. Period. Inevitable, however, because our leaders are not the only factor in the equation. There are the other beings, after all. But mainly, there’s us, the people, who are going through the greatest social, cultural, and especially technological transformation in the history of humanity. In fact, we are the game changers.

Someday, and it won’t be too long in the future, something is going to force someone’s hand. It could be a major sighting, a major leak, something. Something that can no longer be denied. After all, we are fast approaching what experts in artificial intelligence call the Singularity, when computing intelligence exceeds our own. In such a future, can we really think we will still be stuck in neutral on this issue?


Something will force the President’s hand. He or she will finally hold that long awaited press conference and make that bombshell understatement: “I have been advised by the national Security Council, and heads of our intelligence community that there is a reality to some of the UFO phenomenon, in that some UFOs are real physical craft not manufactured by any known civilization on earth.” Or, words to that effect. It’s the kind of statement that many proponents of UFO disclosure would like to hear, but the real question is, what next? Because there will be quite a few follow-up questions.

At the top of the list will be questions about who these other beings are and what their agenda might be. This will be a very difficult question for any President to answer. What if at least some of that answer includes information that might be deeply upsetting? Divining the intentions of non-human visitors–or permanent residents–might not be the easiest thing to do, but it’s entirely possible, judging from the data we do have, that some of them don’t really care very much about humanity. Some may, some may not. What if an agenda has been determined within the intelligence community, and this agenda includes something to do with alleged abduction phenomena? And even if that isn’t true, does any President honestly believe he or she can contain rampant speculation along these lines?

Even if the intentions of these other beings are said to be neutral or positive, there will clearly be tremendous suspicion by large swaths of humanity. This will not be an easy sell. There will already be a sizable number of people predisposed to interpreting these other these beings as nothing less than demonic. Short of bringing one of these entities to a podium and subjecting it to hours and days and weeks of questions by an insatiable public, it is very likely that any moment of disclosure will not satisfy the public the way it would like to be regarding these alien motivations.

That’s only the beginning of the problems. One early and obvious question that will arise, one which will have deep, profound political implications, will be the very simple “Why did you managed to keep this secret all these years?”

Consider that our entire society has been told that UFOs do not represent anything truly anomalous, that ET’s or aliens are definitely not here on Earth interacting with us, that UFO believers may be well-meaning but had been mistaken about all of that. This has been a mindset embedded within all of our major institutions.

Political careers have been destroyed, or at least severely undermined, by the UFO taint. Remember what happened to Dennis Kucinich in 2008 after it became known that many years before he had seen a UFO. Never mind the fact that the two witnesses he had been with came out and corroborated the sighting. They saw the same thing.

All of these institutions and others have treated the UFO topic as nothing more than a joke, something suitable for immature minds. Can it really be that professors throughout the United States uniformly have dismissed this phenomenon without any cooperation from the intelligence community? Ditto with the world of science, politics, and media? Well, no, not when the most modest amount of research shows strong intelligence community influence over all of those institutions.

I n other words people will see very clearly that the national security apparatus has created a global culture that has suffocated the truth. Researchers will begin to investigate in a serious way just how these relationships have undermined the credibility of all of those institutions, and undermined our apprehension of truth.

But it won’t stop there. Citizens will naturally want to know specifics about the structure of secrecy itself. That is, they will want to know, if the US president has been out of the loop all these years, as it seems, then who exactly has been in the loop? Who has been running the UFO cover-up? If the answer is anything along the lines of my own research so far, it will show that the cover-up has long ago gravitated away from formal presidential authority into international and private hands. It’s not that the U.S. President is a non-player in all of this, but rather is more like the public face of the true power elite that stands behind. We all have come to understand this when it comes to power in general, and this will likely be the case when we begin a sophisticated analysis of UFO secrecy.

In other words, the moment of disclosure will trigger an intellectual revolution worldwide relating to the true structure of power on planet Earth. It will be a moment in which the world sees and The political fallout will be tremendous, and a great battle will develop within the first year of Disclosure. Think of it this way. Just because the president has been forced into making an announcement doesn’t mean that the CIA and all the other intelligence groups that had been managing this will simply walk away from the table. There has been a concerted effort spanning an entire human lifetime to control this topic. A great deal has been invested, and mere disclosure is not going to change that. The real issue in the immediate post-disclosure world will be: who controls the spin on the story?

Because right away there will be a great divide, a chasm. Once this topic is available for open discussion, you can be sure that people around the world will be demanding answers. You can be just as sure that on the other side of the fence, information will be handed out as sparingly as possible. Government spin doctors will be out in great numbers trying to control the situation according to national security policy, but this time independent UFO researchers may very well get a public hearing that they had never gotten before. If the official spokespersons are making misleading or false statements, it’s going to be much easier, post-disclosure, for independent researchers to point this out. Because this time, the world will be much more likely to listen. And there will be many, many more investigators into this topic after disclosure than there are today. How all that will turn out only time will tell.

There are many other topics to be disclosed. Tao for instance would be the President Kennedy Assassination and the 9/11 Travesty.

We definitely live in exciting times Richard Dolan will be lecturing at the NEWLIFE EXPO in New York City, October 21-23.
