Hi,

My friend took this video March 14th ~7:20AM on top of Angels Landing in Utah.

I'm guessing it's just a plane/contrails reflecting off morning sun, but who knows!? Seems very similar to this post https://www.metabunk.org/threads/so...plane-near-zion-nation-park-united-541.11097/.

Anyway, video is attached. Not sure where to view flight history, but I'm sure you guys do. Have fun. Also, enjoy my friend's pure stoner confusion throughout the video.

Claim within the conspiracy community of 'green screen' error/glitch during Biden south lawn press gaggle on 16th March 2021.

Video will play at 7 seconds. The claim is that Biden's right hand passes through the microphone.


In reality just a deceptive camera angle.


Hats off to this person who compiled a side by side.

Explained: UFO Filmed With Telescope [Loon Balloon]

"UFO filmed with telescope" sounds ideal, as most UFOs are TFAs - Too Far Away to get a clear look. Unfortunately this one was not much better - it was filmed with a telescope, but seemingly with a phone camera held up to the eyepiece. The UFO itself was many miles away.
At first I thought it was lense flare, as it changed shape in the video with the phone focussing. But it was also claimed to be something visible to the naked eye. It also seemed to have and "antenna" coming from the top.

Then I remembered that many telescopes invert the image. So maybe was more like.

Now it looks like a ballon, and the obvious contender is a Loon Balloon, like.

Debunked: Hovering Ship "Fata Morgana" or "Mirage" [False Horizon]

  • 59,174

Tabloid media love to invoke the cool sounding "fata morgana" or "superior mirage" to explain images of things floating in the sky. The problem is that a real fata morgana superior mirage (above the boat) looks like this:


An inferior mirage (under the boat) looks like this:

In both cases there's distortion, and there's inversion.

It does NOT look like this:

Hello everybody, this is my first post in this forum, so i am sorry if I do anything wrong, Last week 16/02/2021 during a newscast, something with a weird shape ran across the screen, Here is the link, the possible UFO appears at 1:51:57 after some "research" i managed to find a Reddit post here is the link and in the comment section a user by the name of ewandrowsky replied to the post giving some context, imo i think that was just a plane, but the camera might have distorted it, and somehow made it look like a UFO

A "cruise missile type of thing" spotted by AA2292

Article:
At approximately 1:19 CST on the Albuquerque Center frequency of 127.850 MHz or 134.750 MHz (recording wasn't frequency stamped) the pilot reported: "Do you have any targets up here? We just had something go right over the top of us - I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing - moving really fast right over the top of us."


American later confirmed this to Tyler Rogoway at The Drive:

We immediately followed up [with American Airlines] looking for clarification on that statement, especially in regards to if the pilots had been directly asked about this or not, and noting that we had clearly heard the flight number's identification in a longer version of...

Explained: Why Biden is boarding C-32 instead of VC-25

On February 5th, 2021, President Joe Biden made his first flight aboard Air Force One, travelling from Joint Base Andrews to New Castle Air National Guard Base for a weekend trip to his home state of Delaware, the Associated Press reported. Here is the video showing Biden boarding Air Force One from C-SPAN: https://www.c-span.org/video/?508747-101/joint-base-andrews-departure

However, some people took note of the fact that Biden was boarding an airplane that resembled the C-32, a modified Boeing 757, commonly used by the Vice President as Air Force Two, instead of the VC-25A, a modified Boeing 747. Some Trump supporters even went as far as claiming that the reason for this was because Donald Trump was still in control of the presidency so he was still in possesion of the original Air Force One, forcing Biden to use a decoy airplane. This follows a series of allegations that Biden has been using fake props and...

Debunked: Biden signing "Blank" Executive Orders

2021-01-22_15-53-03.jpg

In the C-Span footage, the bright lights and the low resolution of the video made it look like Biden was signing blank executive orders. This led some of the more imaginative QAnon holdouts to suggest they were actually blank (and hence part of some kind of fake Presidency). However, a higher resolution photo shows the text.

The text is also briefly visible in the video as he closes the document folder, so the sheet is briefly not being directly lit.

Debunked: Biden in "Fake" Oval Office

2021-01-22_14-26-45.jpg

Unwilling to accept that Biden is now President, several people have been sharing memes suggesting that recent photos and video of Biden in the Oval Office are fake. The evidence presented seems large to be things like noticing the wallpaper was different years ago, or that when viewed from a low angle you see more trees, and from a high angle you see people and cars. There's also a claim that German TV released a photo of the "set"

This is indeed a backstage image of a fake oval office from Germany. It's the set used by the German program Bilt, for their election night coverage. Note the four people in the image above, here they are on German TV.

Blue UFO Over Hawaii

Hawaii Blue UFO.jpg

A UFO seen in Hawaii looks similar to an LED kite to me, appearing as a curved line of light that changes shape.


The loop above has been stabilized, the apparent jitter comes from a combination of motion blur (from camera motion, not the object moving) and loss of focus.

Here it's compared to another LED kite:


Article:
Misitina Sape told Hawaii News Now she captured the image at 8:26 p.m. near Haleakala Avenue in Nanakuli.

Not long after, a woman named Moriah spotted what looked like the same object passing over Princess Kahanu Estates.

Trump's Call with Brad Raffensperger

Article:

President Trump urged fellow Republican Brad Raffensperger, the Georgia secretary of state, to “find” enough votes to overturn his defeat in an extraordinary one-hour phone call Saturday that election experts said raised legal questions.

The Washington Post obtained a recording of the conversation in which Trump alternately berated Raffensperger, tried to flatter him, begged him to act and threatened him with vague criminal consequences if the secretary of state refused to pursue his false claims, at one point warning that Raffensperger was taking “a big risk.”

Throughout the call, Raffensperger and his office’s general counsel rejected Trump’s assertions, explaining that the president is relying on debunked conspiracy theories and that President-elect Joe Biden’s 11,779-vote victory in Georgia...

Debunked: "Missile Strike" caused Nashville Explosion

Nashville Bombing header.jpg

The idea that a city of 700,000 people would somehow fail to notice a missile being fired a an AT&T building, or even the idea that some powerful and secretive cabal would think that nobody would notice, is pretty obviously ridiculous. But missiles are a common target for conspiracy theorists and so it should have been un surprising that some people say that the explosion in Nashville was not only from Anthony Warner's RV, but was augmented, or perhaps caused, by a missile.

The evidence presented for this is tenuous. Firstly there's the idea that the explosion happened across the road from the RV, an idea that took hold because of video showing a the central fireball being obscured by a dust cloud - discussed and debunked in another thread.

Debunked: Nashville Explosion was "Across the Street" from the RV

2021-01-04_10-04-50.jpg

The following video is a cropped and slowed version of the official Metro Nashville PD video of the RV explosion. I've also corrected it for the camera motion from the blast, so you can more accurate see where things are before and after.



Some people have claimed that the explosion comes from "across the street". This is an understandable mistake. If you overlay a before and "during" shot, you see a portion where the fireball is visible on the right, but the RV was on the left.


However even in this comparison, it should be obvious what is going on. The fireball is there, but it's blocked in the center by...

Is Falun Gong Behind Seth Holehouse's "The Plot to Steal America"? It looks like it.

Falun Gong Holehouse Header.jpg
A slickly produced video titled "The Plot to Steal America", which regurgitated many election conspiracy theories and pointed the finger at China, was shared in a tweet by Donald Trump on December 23, 2020.

The video is narrated and ostensibly created by Seth Holehouse and his web site "Man in America." Holehouse is a member of Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa), a "new religious movement" that many people have described as being a cult. Several people have noted this connection and suggested that the video is simply disinformation, propaganda from Falun Gong. Falun Gong has a long history of attacking the communist government of China, and more recently of strongly supporting Trump.

It appears that attempts have been made by Falun...

2020-12-16_09-29-12.jpg
"'Storm coming" is a joke I use whenever the the weather looks a bit dark. It's an old Yorkshire reference (like "there's trouble at 'mill"), a folksy comment meant to invoke the idea of a gruff old farmer looking out over the field at oncoming clouds.

It's also a very common metaphorical phrase used in movies and books. A search of the movie/TV data base QuoDB returns over a thousand results.

2020-12-16_09-40-06.jpg

It also represents a foundational belief in the QAnon theory, dating back to a random comment Trump made about "The Calm Before The Storm" in 20172020-12-16_09-44-43.jpgIt was likely he simply said something...
