UFOs And Certainty
Review and Commentary regarding James Fox's
Film Documentary 'UFOs--Out Of The Blue'
By Alfred Lehmberg

UFOs are a certainty of a type that is -sure- and beyond all rational skepticism. They are a certainty that belies the ponderous arguments of the rabid debunker. They are a certainty measured in a number so close to the whole number "one" (or a hundred percent), that the impossibly TINY remainder (that mega-microscopic difference of undaunted doubt...) is without a scintilla or a shred of any MEANING, the remotest SUBSTANCE, or the smallest SIGNIFICANCE! Such is the CERTAINTY that we are -not- alone in the universe.
All the major propeller noggins, brainiacs, high-domes, and eggheads think so, too, as does the majority of an educated population of people who believe humankind actually landed on the moon. Major religious apologists think so. Respected groups of scientists, government executives, and professional people think so. This writer thinks so. It is more likely than not that the reader thinks so, too...
So how is it, then, that there is this disconnect between belief and behavior? From what presupposed "where" comes this steadfast refusal to acknowledge this *certainty* and act accordingly? What generates this lack of interest in rejecting the baseless ignorance our interest-conflicted corporate *leadership* (and its lap-dog white-bread media) stealthily imposes? Why do we -continue- to tolerate these duplicitous entities who live on to -further- encourage the rank and file to giggle up their sleeves in mocking denial of CERTAINTY?
A more rational, intelligent and far looking approach, alternatively, is accepting this valid -certainty- regarding "new people" in previously "undiscovered countries"... "across a river" we don't yet know -how- to cross! In other words, acknowledge "new people" not of this Earth ... cop to the Extraterrestrials... admit to Aliens! ...And Aliens a little more advanced than we are, too, on more than a -few- levels. We may be bumping up against the *problem* right -there-, but I digress.
...Aliens from space... What a concept, eh?
But a concept not substantially different from the people newly discovered in a just discovered America by a barely seaworthy Europe of the post renaissance! Spain and Portugal were the aliens then (forgetting the aliens don't have to -be- Spain and Portugal).
Moreover, it is a more fortuitous concept this time around because we have a little more knowledge and a tad more experience with which to deal with it. Though, again, what keeps us from this birthright of discovery that we are by no means -alone- in a universe infinitely grander than even the most intelligent of us could appreciate? A "reach" -must- exceed its "grasp", reader, or we're dull as Nancy Reagan's fashion sense at the age changing denouement.
What are the roots of this brand of intellectual cowardice? What are the mechanisms of this cowardly denial? Outmoded "Tradition" and questionable "Ceremony," and those more comfortable maintaining it for reasons of their own, perhaps? More on that later.
James Fox handily considers these startling concepts and questions of far reaching and elevating potentiality, and more, in his film "UFOs -- Out of the Blue," and provides the fence-sitting skeptic abundant reason to climb down on the side of cautious acceptance for the idea that -some- (if not many) UFOs are intelligently controlled craft ... not of Earthly manufacture... in authenticity, in actuality, in reality, and in fact! Get used to it.
You will, -anyway-!
Fox provides ample demonstration that the truth -is- stranger than the fiction woven and embroidered artfully by corporate entities at cross purposes to the human beings they should be serving. Plus, he offers (believably and on balance) an ID for these back-stepping corporate entities. They are the -same- corporate entities, it turns out, as the ones Dwight Eisenhower warned us about, so forcefully and convincingly, we're shown, at the close of Eisenhower's term in office when he left his presidency. This is a non-elected leadership, remember, and one without humane responsibility, accountability or conscience. Truly, it is an irresponsible leadership who has fundamentally ignored the elected leadership, Fox points out, and largely because they manufacture them from persons of their own choosing, -this- writer observes. Verily!
Moving on, this film is a worthy effort competently executed by a rational team of truth seekers led by Fox and has a serious message for the (uninformed) viewer that is SPOT-ON! Fox's production is -not- a film necessarily for the ardent student of ufology who has familiarized herself with the intricacies of the general lore (a small minority). Fox's production is -not- a film, necessarily, for the professional researcher who has ferreted out that which -is- known about this subject (an even smaller minority) and who will, even justly, contest the validity of the production based on its flaws. "Out of the Blue" is, flatly, -not- a film for the rigid and reactionary debunker (a suspicious minority given inordinate credence and hijacked mainstream support), who will unfortunately make distracting (and unethical) use of the film's aforementioned few flaws to unjustly discredit the ENTIRE sterling effort.
The STUDENT minority may be aware of all or most of the facts presented, and will ask what is new. The RESEARCHER minority will contest the validity of some of the principals used in interview and some of the ufological footage used as illustration. He will therefore fall into the hands (and purposes) of the conflicted DEBUNKER minority who can then crow -too- loudly about the testimony and involvement of controversial persons such as Doctor Greer, Colonel Corso, and Sergeant Clifford Stone. These "skepti-bunkies" will too loudly utilize the contested inclusion of these persons in a busy attempt to, by extension, discredit the very credible testimony of persons like Professor Sturrock, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Gordon Cooper, and Admiral Lord Hill Norton, more credible persons featured in Fox's film. This is the scurrilous using the microscopic to invalidate the macroscopic, democracy being used to destroy democracy, as an analogy, so as to, perhaps, continue to hide the truth is plain sight!
This film -is- for the person who would scrape the scales from their eyes. This film -is- for the person who is CURIOUS about the larger reality that we accelerate towards with ever more apparent, unsettling, and discomfiting speed. It -is- for the person interested in a serious chronicle of events that might lead the open-minded individual to the rational conclusion proposed: that we are being visited by (and are interacting with on some level) off-Earth cultures, and that our *puppet* governments, motivated by their own non-elected elite for reasons of arbitrary convenience, have been LYING to the rank and file about it from the very beginning!
...And not for the -benefit- of that rank and file, either...
Additionally, the rigid skepti-bunky will appropriate the use of discredited Meier and contested Mexican footage, used in Fox's film, to disqualify other, much more convincing footages of UFOs, footage that brought -this- jaded ufological writer right up out of his chair! One of theses clips -still- dazzles after numerous reversals, slow motion frame to frame, and re-winds.
The aforementioned footage opens up on a very slightly blurred and heat distorted daytime home movie camera image (but a competent one) of a glowing disk of indeterminate size angling downwards in a gracefully arcing dive to the hot dry desert floor. Words on the screen say White Sands, New Mexico 1996.
The size of the object becomes apparent as it makes contact with the parched daytime soil and gouges up car sized clots of assaulted earth (that would take many seconds to fall to the ground!) and raises a huge cloud of dust that slides quickly out of frame as the unchanging and still glowing orb (!) inexplicably BOUNCES like a skipping stone (!) and is then followed on its ricocheting trajectory by the camera! The size of the object is hard to judge but the violence of the distant impact (far beyond massive high tension electrical towers) indicates a size, at least, bigger and more massive than a light plane... perhaps even 747 sized! There is no hint of a tail or a fuselage or wings or a cockpit where these would have been, clearly, visible.
Additionally, a tough military transport plane like a C-17 would have -pancaked- at the rate of closure and approach angle with which this *thing* struck the ground! I've seen films of B-52s auger in with a lesser closure rate and attack angle, and they smear like a monster bug on a big windshield! They, assuredly, don't bounce.
-This- thing bounced like a big smooth stone on a calm lake. It did not deform or change its appearance in any way. It did not begin to come apart or shed parts. It did not lose so much as a fraction of the strange integrity it possessed before the crash... and it looked like it was just going to continue on its merry way completely unaffected by the initial contact with the ground... when the angle (after some seconds of continued flight) steered it to a steeper approach angle and terrible contact with the ground once again! There was no bounce -this- time! There was; however, a monstrous explosion! More earth was moved than on the -first- contact, and the saucer shaped orb exploded like a wineglass thrown at a brick patio, bursting into -thousands- of pieces of fractured light! It was the most incredible purported UFO footage this writer has ever seen.
And that is the theme of Fox's treatment of the ufological, a treatment very low on woo-woo, and high on quality footage and the testimony of credible witnesses -heavily- represented by multinational educational, departmental, and elected government officials (or high ranking military). This is forgetting, with outraged difficulty, the scurrilous and axe grinding attempted character assassinations on Mitchell and Cooper by skeptibunkies previous to the film's release (smears completely and thoroughly discredited by Jerry Cohen at , but I digress).
The vast majority of the witnesses are solid, credible, and don't have the hidden agendas of their discouraging detractors to prosecute! Fox very effectively catalogues credible incidents in his film and composes the associations of very -valid- points being made with UFO footage that was, at -minimum-, UFO footage purported to be genuine at one time, and was merely demonstrative! And that is footage, additionally, at a -minimum- of screen time that is in -no- way representative of the aggregate verity of this important film as a whole! Let's move on.
We are not alone! Does the reader understand that? This is not a momentary distraction from more pressing realities, good reader, this -is- the reality! Fox makes that clear with a very credible and convincing production. He provides convincing visuals that brought -this- jaded viewer to his breathless feet! He presented facts and occurrences that this writer knows the majority of viewing individuals are not aware of and would find extremely interesting. Finally, he supplies proof that quality persons of world class authority find the subject of UFOs one whole lot -less- dismissible than the hijacked mainstream would have the individual believe, and this by a long shot! See the film!
In a sidebar, this writer reminds the reader that there are no amount of otherwise data-following researchers sharp-shooting the production and complaining about the verity of individual testimonies that should -remotely- damage the credibility of this film... The testimonies included are from individual persons that for RIGHT, WRONG, or INDIFFERENT reasons are, still, a cross section of -all- the people (liars AND saints!), and who are all pointing forcefully in the SAME freaking direction, also still!
Some of them ARE fake! So? SO!?! So how is that NEWS? The fraudulent will not make the genuine any LESS genuine, despite the suggestions of the most vociferous debunker. Some of them are ALWAYS fake!
BUT! Some of them, in TURN, are -NOT-!
James Fox thinks that that the preceding should give one pause to reconsider. Much of it is -not- fake, good reader! Presidents have confirmed it. Science quantifies and qualifies it. Common -sense-, as it astonishingly turns out, DEMANDS it. All the photographic, historical and anecdotal evidence points to it, and the public can accept it as plain as the nose on their astonished faces (!), Fox seems to conclude. It -is- the future, and Fox suggests thinly , moreover, that we should begin living in it.
Fox makes this more than patently clear in "UFOs -- Out of the Blue", whatever the criticism of his axe grinding critics, well meaning or no! He does it in an intelligent manner that belies the fantastic quality of the subject matter, and he even tells the viewer who is at the bottom of the general cover-up, even if the ID is not helpful. Who are they? "They" are the military/Industrial complex.
...-Not- very helpful is it (?) -- like trying to hold *fog* responsible for its behavior (and that's the point of corporate design, actually -- the avoidance of personal liability... responsibility). But they are, actually, human beings -not- entirely unlike the reader, sir and madam! They are individuals contributing large and small to corporate interests, interests -comfortable- using the INSTITUTION of that corporation as a way to diffuse guilt and avoid personal responsibility, for causing massive ignorance and huge suffering in the whole rest of the world they would draw their profit from, and keeping their big lie alive... If anyone ever asks you who "THEY" are, that's who they are... persons who manipulate or -help- to manipulate other persons for the purposes of their own personal enrichment REGARDLESS of that cost to others. Sociopaths by any other name. So -this- writer, director James Fox, and the film's narrator, Peter Coyote, would seem to contend.
Be that as it may, Fox's fine film is important and a quality addition to the curious individual's essential library of visual and print materials regarding the *larger* reality... a reality largely rubbished in suspicious supermarket tabloids, to paraphrase Admiral Lord Hill Norton from the film. Truly, it is -more- than equal to the low price of its admission.
Information in that regard can be found on the film's website at: , along with more details about the film, facts regarding prestigious awards that fox's film has won, and pertinent links to the film's ernestly convincing narrator (and former legendary Digger!), Peter Coyote. I watched the film three times for this review and found it more compelling with each subsequent viewing. It is eminently worthwhile even with its forgettable flaws, it is concise and complete, and it is very well executed. Finally, it portrays a -certainty- actually there!
