On the day that Hunter Biden was scheduled to go to court, the U.S. government conveniently decided to hold a big congressional extravaganza on UFOs, complete with sketchy “whistleblowers” who claim the government is hiding dead aliens.
There is something really off about the alien whistleblower.

Of course, many folks on the right saw this as nothing more than a coordinated distraction maneuver, similar to how they “re-arrest” President Trump every time Joe has a scandal pop up. Although, overall, the feeling from a lot of Americans was rather “meh.”
Check out the overwhelming vibe on TikTok:
Revolver actually published a fantastic article on this very topic — Americans basically shrugged their shoulders at the entire UFO circus and went about their business as usual.
It really makes you wonder, has the CIA lost their touch? That’s what Revolver’s own Darren Beattie is wondering after he dug up a document that reveals something very interesting. It turns out that the CIA likes to use “UFOs” to distract the public. According to Darren’s tweet, the CIA used this very tactic in Guatemala, of all places.
Well would you look at that, when the CIA wanted to distract from its machinations in Guatemala they floated the idea of planting "flying saucer" stories in the media

Here’s a closeup of the document Darren shared. Notice the word “fabricate” highlighted in yellow.
In truth, the CIA likes to use UFOs as a “cover” for various activities. Back in 1997, they admitted to lying to the American people about UFOs during the Cold War .”
In the darkest days of the cold war, the military lied to the American public about the true nature of many unidentified flying objects in an effort to hide its growing fleets of spy planes, a Central Intelligence Agency study says.
The deceptions were made in the 1950’s and 1960’s amid a wave of U.F.O. sightings that alarmed the public and parts of official Washington.
The C.I.A. study says the Air Force knew that most reports by citizens and aviation experts were based on fleeting glimpses of U-2 and SR-71 spy planes, which fly extremely high.
Those planes were developed in the 1950’s and 60’s to photograph enemy targets. From secret bases, mainly in California and Nevada, the aircraft repeatedly flew across the country and eventually overseas to bases in countries that included Britain, West Germany and Taiwan.
The CIA really went all out to keep this cold war/UFO lie going. The NYT piece continues:
While commercial airliners int he 1950’s flew at altitudes of up to 30,000 feet, the U-2 soared to more than 60,000 feet and the SR-71 to more than 80,000 feet, or 15 miles, nearly the edge of space.
The planes carried powerful cameras to spy on foreign military installations and sensitive electronic gear to capture radio and radar transmissions. The spy craft were developed by the intelligence agency and often flown by the Air Force.
Rather than acknowledgeing the existence of the top-secret flights or saying nothing about them publicly, the Air Force decided to put out false cover stories, the C.I.A. study says. For instance, unusual observations that were actually spy flights were attributed to atmospheric phenomena like ice crystals and temperature inversions.
”Over half of all U.F.O. reports from the late 1950’s through the 1960’s were accounted for by manned reconnaissance flights” over the United States, the C.I.A. study says. ”This led the Air Force to make misleading and deceptive statements to the public in order to allay public fears and to protect an extraordinarily sensitive national security project.”
The study, ”C.I.A.’s Role in the Study of U.F.O.’s. 1947-90,” was written by Gerald K. Haines and appears in Studies of Intelligence, a secret Central Intelligence Agency journal. Five years ago, the agency began releasing unclassified versions of the journal yearly.
Fast forward to today. If the CIA is back to their old tricks, then Thursday’s congressional UFO circus would suddenly make perfect sense. They knew they needed something significant to divert the storyline away from Hunter, so they called in the big guns: whistleblowers and little green men. The question for Americans now is: Do you trust the CIA to never lie to you again, or do you believe that just like in the past, the CIA uses their propaganda and manipulation techniques on both foreigners and the American people to distract them while they do their dirty work?
