Vancouver, BC – Exclusive new video published to social media on February 12, 2019, catches up with former Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Utah State Director Erica Lukes in conversation with NewsInsideOut.com co-editor Jon Kelly discussing explosive revelations from UFO Classified’s recent interview series with MUFON whistleblower Phil Leech. This latest NewsInsideOut.com UFOlogy and Exopolitics investigation raises disturbing questions regarding how MUFON could possibly survive an audit testing compliance with its own internal guidelines, let alone one that evaluated MUFON compliance with U.S. federal laws and regulations. UFO Classified with Erica Lukes airs Friday nights at 4 p.m. PST/7 p.m. EST on KCOR.
Erica Lukes is a UFO researcher and host of UFO Classified on the KCOR Digital Radio Network. She is the former state director for the Utah chapter of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) who trained as a MUFON field investigator. She is currently holding a substantial historic archive of UFO periodicals, research, rare books and other publications (some of which were willed to her by noted researchers) available through special public events in Salt Lake City. Erica will be seen on Science Channel’s “NASA’s Unexplained Files”.
In a series of letters posted to UFOClassified.com earlier this year the former National Director of MUFON’s Case Review Team detailed an emergent culture of extensive background checks targeting individuals reporting UFO incidents where potential Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) law violations exposed Americans’ protected health information (PHI).
In the first document Phil Leech wrote “I have found that some investigators are having extensive background checks run on witnesses when they submit a report … one report showing a comprehensive list of medications a witness is using with side effects from these medicines.” Citing MUFON’s Case Management System (CMS) as a multi-user access online database, the author noted “many individuals within MUFON” could inappropriately (if not illegally) access such protected records via a simple login.
According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, the HIPAA Privacy Rule “requires appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of personal health information, and sets limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that may be made of such information without patient authorization. The Rule also gives patients rights over their health information, including rights to examine and obtain a copy of their health records, and to request corrections.” How MUFON is maintaining compliance with such standards is not well-understood at the time of this writing.
The Phil Leech letters further chronicle seemingly outrageous evidence management practices naming MUFON’s Director of Investigations Chase Kloetzke in the black hole funneling of highly sensitive materials collected from witness medical procedures (an alleged implant) to Luis Elizondo, formerly with the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), now To The Stars (TTS) Academy’s Director of Global Security and Special Programs.
In a passage that appears to defy the author’s understanding of chain of custody compliance, Phil Leech wrote how this exotic specimen left MUFON’s purview via “Lue Elizondo with the production company from A&E that picked it up for transport.” The whistleblower asked incredulously “After 50 years of searching for the truth why would [DOI Chase Kloetzke] or anyone else turn over the one piece of evidence that could prove this all to a Production Company?”
In the way described by whistleblower testimony MUFON appears to resemble an active covert partner to multiple departments of the federal government including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s widely-derided “If You See Something, Say Something” informants campaign, where bureaucratic mission creep imposes continuingly increasing demands for public data mining in the name of quotas and yearly bonuses. It is in such a manner that MUFON appears to act as a covert enabler of ongoing out-of-control big government expansion into what remains of private life in America.
And MUFON is not alone in potential privacy trespasses. In perhaps the most bizarre turn of events supposed Secret Space Program (SSP) whistleblower Corey Goode and protégé Jordan Sather have been named as principal actors in a criminal #DoxxGate doxxing campaign targeting online critics and opponents resulting in legal action due to HIPAA law violations against one of their victims. Ironically it was Corey Goode’s controversial appearance at the 2017 MUFON Symposium that fueled in part a mass defection of the organization’s senior membership protesting MUFON’s latest iteration as an entertainment production company that has abandoned science in all but name.
MUFON’s ridiculous public embrace of Corey Goode’s ever-changing narratives alongside an apparent shared HIPAA law violation modus operandi seems to define both parties as Blue Avians of the same feather. Seen in this profound light, Goode and company as cultural phenoms can also be understood as characters in live action national security exopolitical theater role play harboring covert allegiance to U.S. federal agency initiatives.
