Tom Sanger interview and new analysis of Independence Day UFO near Tucson

By Jon Kelly

Vancouver, BC – An exclusive new video published to YouTube on September 17, 2015, catches up with night vision videographer Tom Sanger to discuss his evidence of a UFO over the Santa Catalina Mountains near Tucson recorded on Independence Day. Fireworks weren’t the only bright objects in Arizona skies that July 4, 2015, evening as the seasoned experiencer and his sky watch colleague teamed up to capture one of this summer’s most talked-about close encounters. While MUFON has declared the matter “case closed” a few questions remained concerning optics that even the so-called professionals of UFOlogy may be loath to consider.

Citing communications masts visible on Mt. Bigelow, Open Minds stated on July 22, 2015, that “out of focus lights can be seen on the far right of the screen” at the beginning of the video. This defocused status contrasts with a pin-sharp in-focus recording of the UFO, indicating how the mystery object and communications masts resided on two entirely different focal planes that evening.

During his interview, Tom Sanger emphasized that while recording fireworks that evening he had manually set focus at that time for nearby, not distant objects, recanting earlier remarks to Open Minds in which he described an object at 30 miles distance.

Huffington Post’s follow-up from earlier this month offered the report of Phoenix MUFON’s director of investigations whose on-site post-event survey determined that human activity (described by HuffPo as headlights from automobiles) near the summit of Mt. Bigelow was the cause behind the sighting. A gated roadway leading to a platform does exist at relative line-of-sight to the camera’s perspective, but according to the witness, this is no superhighway trafficked by a lineup of hundreds of vehicles passing through the trees over the 8 plus minutes accounted for in the video.

The strong possibility exists, supported by optical evidence, that the UFO was in fact located over Sanbino Canyon between the mountain and the observer. During his interview Tom Sanger described how the masts and peak of Mt. Bigelow both resolve along the same focal plane when imaged during daylight with the Luna Optics camera.

That the UFO resided upon a separate focal plane at variance with the distance to out-of-focus communications masts shown in the early frames of the video is abundantly clear to all parties concerned. In this reporter’s considered opinion, the evidence shows that the UFO was not on the mountain. It was recorded hovering in the foreground.

Digital magnification of the Tom Sanger UFO reveals possible structural details including three individual light sources separated by discrete gaps along the observer-facing portion of the object’s airframe.

The relationship between exceptionally bright bursts of light shown in the video and the operations of hand-held illuminators is further explored during the interview. The impact of a one Watt laser recorded at 13 miles distance on a 0 Lux broadcast camera’s sensor array is compared to overexposure suffered by the 0.03 Lux Luna Optics LN-DM50-HRSD when capturing fireworks. Lights from the UFO neither display streaming trails from sweeping hand-held light beams nor do they at any time overexpose on the sensor.

Archival footage from Mt. Adams in Washington provides a baseline for evaluating such claims, suggesting how the 300-times-more-sensitive Luna Optics camera would have struggled to display anything other than a whited-out image frame under similar conditions near Mt. Bigelow. The Tom Sanger video shows no evidence of the visual jitter associated with hand-held lights and their operations. It is as if the UFO lights were performing with machine-like precision at a separate focal plane from the summit.

Was it hundreds of dancers wearing headlamps rotating in a circle on the Mt. Bigelow platform? The focal plane evidence again denies such suggestions. What really happened is that members of the public equipped with affordable night vision optics exceeded the data collection performance of so-called UFOlogy experts who proceeded to attempt to bury the story under a mountain of spurious claims and paperwork.

Their loud and widespread protestations betray serious absence of real-time instrumental field operational experience and post-event critical analytic skills. The Tom Sanger video and its public consequences offer a revelation concerning how persons seeking answers to UFO contact mysteries are today empowered in pioneering independent avenues of research at these awe-inspiring frontiers of twenty-first century knowledge.

To paraphrase a line from Bad Boys II (2003), the Tom Sanger Independence Day UFO “just got real.” Readers can watch an exclusive enhanced version of the UFO below.

Syrian Refugees: Assad involuntarily cites ‘threatening prophecy’

By Jon Kelly

Vancouver, BC – Exclusive new video published to YouTube on September 16, 2015, purports to reveal how Syrian President Bashar al-Assad recently recalled negotiations and an offer not unlike one reported issued by the U.S. government to the Taliban during talks concerning Syrian refugees. The death of Aylan Kurdi, like the “Nayirah” incident preceding the Gulf War, has now become iconic in Western media propagandizing a refugee crisis impacting countries in Europe with populations scheduled for admission to both the United States and Canada. As if reflecting such concerns, the video exposes unconscious communications about “death,” a “dark symbol” and a “threatening prophecy.”

The commander-in-chief of Syrian Armed Forces sat down earlier with RT along with other key Russian media for an interview published yesterday where he spoke at length on political progress, the crisis in Syria, its allies and the war on terrorism. An intelligence assessment of that interview’s soundtrack utilized a mirror filter to digitally reflect the Ba’ath Party general secretary’s speech signal in order to detect unconscious communications.

Like the mirror on a reflector telescope, such impressions offer provably accurate insight into a streaming subtext of sleep talking-like comments from inner space. has previously reported how the same procedure publicly revealed details of the Iraq War, identified the BTK Killer, named Russian spy Anna Chapman’s accomplice and uncovered the UFOs in Edward Snowden’s NSA cache weeks, months and years before such information became widely-accepted public knowledge. Below is a partial transcript of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s remarks on the refugee crisis followed by the secret message encrypted backwards therein.

PRESIDENT ASSAD: Actually it’s like the West now is crying on the refugees with one eye and aiming at them with a machine gun with the second one. Because actually those refugees left Syria because of the terrorism. Mainly because of the terrorists, because of the killing.

And second because of the result of terrorism. When you have terrorism and have the destruction of the infrastructure you won’t have the basic needs of living. Many people will leave because of the terrorism and because they want to earn their living somewhere in this world.

The West is crying for them and the West is supporting terrorists in the beginning of this crisis, saying it was “A peaceful uprising,” they called it. When they say later, “It’s moderate opposition.” And now they say “There’s terrorists,” like Al-Nusra and ISIS but because of the Syrian state or Syrian regime or the Syrian president.

As long as they follow this propaganda they will have more refugees. It’s not about Europe didn’t accept them or invite them as refugees. It’s about not dealing with the cause.

If you are worried about them, stop supporting terrorists. That’s what we think regarding the crisis. This is the core of the whole issue of refugees.

See that death. Know this dark symbol. And you give him this threatening prophecy.

The death of Aylan Kurdi, the exploitation of human suffering (whether real or imagined) as a tool for propaganda and a looming invasion of Syria by the West following failed diplomatic efforts are clearly invoked above.

The British Daily Express newspaper reported last week how the father of Aylan, Abdullah Kurdi, was allegedly engaged in human trafficking as the captain of the boat that capsized in the Aegean Sea on September 2, killing at least 12 people. France’s Le Monde published allegations that Aylan’s body had been moved on the beach prior to recovery for enhanced optics that ignited a firestorm of sympathy around the world.

The family was said to have been attempting to reach Vancouver, British Columbia and the tragedy quickly became a focus of the 2015 Canadian federal election. It was Green Party leader Elizabeth May who posted how Prime Minister “Stephen Harper has absolutely no credibility on this issue, having failed to honor previous agreements.”

The global impact of the death of Aylan Kurdi is comparable to the influential “Nayirah” incident prior to the Gulf War (1990-91) where a 15-year-old Kuwaiti girl told a United Nations caucus that Iraqi soldiers had removed scores of babies from incubators and left them to die. An editorial that appeared in the New York Times following the war clarified how “The girl, whose testimony helped build support for the Persian Gulf War, was identified only as “Nayirah,” supposedly to protect family members still in Kuwait. Another piece of information was also withheld: that she is not just some Kuwaiti but the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the U.S.”

That testimony was exploited heavily in swaying public sentiment against Iraq leading to a U.S. –led Coalition invasion of Kuwait and the subsequent slaughter of an estimated 20 to 30 thousand Iraqi personnel. Claims of human child sacrifice were exploited as a “dark symbol” ritually espoused via media to incite public hysteria mobilizing for war (PSYOPS). The fact that those claims proved fraudulent did not prevent Gulf War Syndrome and the decimation of Iraq’s environment leading to the genetic deformation of infants, both of which have been attributed to the Coalition’s intensive use of depleted uranium munitions both during and after the conflict.

A looming invasion of Syria is targeted by the West, that country being named by the extremist neoconservative Project for a New American Century in 2000 as a stepping stone towards assaulting Iran. Readers can see the complete text of “Rebuilding America’s Defenses” here.

The Guardian newspaper reported yesterday that British extremist think tank the International Institute for Strategic Studies has also assessed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad “poses a much bigger threat than Islamic State.”

In negotiations leading to the U.S.-led Coalition invasion and occupation of Afghanistan (2001-2014), French intelligence analyst and author Jean-Charles Brisard is said by Inter Press Agency to have related an incident wherein the Taliban were instructed by a Bush administration representative that “Either you accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs.”

This reporter can only wonder if such a deal was also tabled before President Assad, inspiring his conceit of a “threatening prophesy” revealed in the transcript and video above.
