An American Airlines flight travelling from Cincinnati to Phoenix on Sunday shared a bizarre close encounter with what its pilot described as a fast-moving, ‘long cylindrical object’. The encounter, which occurred at 36,000 feet above the remote northeast corner of New Mexico, west of Des Moines yesterday, involved AA Flight 2292, an Airbus A320, according to The Drive. In a radio transmission allegedly intercepted by Steve Douglass, who runs the Deep Black Horizon blog, the pilot can be heard telling Albuquerque Air Traffic Control: ‘Do you have any targets up here? We just had something go right over the top of us.

Part of a Boeing flying higher up? Article says the same thing was reported by two different aircraft in 2018, a missile-like object.

Whoever wrote this article doesn’t realize the size of the United States. They wrote “northeast New Mexico, west of Des Monies,” except northeast New Mexico is two states and about 600 miles away from the middle of Iowa. Also, White Sands is about 350 miles from northeast New Mexico.

Professional debunkers on the payroll of the USAF will quickly dismiss the sighting. They can't use "swamp gas" or a daytime view of Venus, quite obsolete after 50 years of use, so the order may go out to attack the reporting pilot. A Japanese pilot reported something similar over Alaska several years ago. The Japanese government under American orders pinned him to a cross. Expect the same here.

Area 51 swamp gas. Of course nothing on radar, no one has a camera, can’t really say what it was. Airliners need to have front and rear video cameras recording their entire flight. Cops have dash cams so how about cockpit cams built in the cockpit and somewhere on the tail.

Could this explain some of this year’s egregious snubs? The Hollywood Foreign Press Association—the group of people who nominate and select winners for the annual Golden Globes—has come under fire for lack of diversity after a report found zero black members currently in the organization.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen signaled the administration is open to new corporate taxes but dismissed the idea of a 'wealth levy,' saying President Joe Biden opposes it. Yellen said Biden favors boosting taxes on companies and could raise rates on capital gains, noting the idea was 'worth considering.' The administration is looking to boost the corporate tax to 28 per cent, Yellen noted. But she ruled out a wealth tax—an idea favored by progressives. 'A wealth tax has been discussed but is not something President Biden' favors, Yellen said at a virtual Dealbook/DC Policy Project conference Monday hosted by the New York Times.

Mask mandates are in jeopardy in one state. The North Dakota House of Representatives, on a 50-44 vote, passed a bill Monday that would ban any future mask-wearing mandates. The bill, which is now headed for the state Senate, follows the repeal in January of a November order by Republican Gov. Doug Burgum requiring the wearing of masks in public, though some local mandates remain. State Rep. Jeff Hoverson, Minot Republican, called all mask mandates “diabolical silliness” and the conspiracy of “unelected, wealthy bureaucrats who are robbing our freedoms and perpetuating lies,” according to a report in the Grand Forks Herald.

Governor Greg Abbott requested statewide designation for major disaster relief from President Biden. Biden denied the statewide designation and only approved some counties in Texas, not all of them. Abbott asked for a declaration that covered the entire state because the winter storm knocked out power and heat throughout the state, as well as leaving millions of Texans without water. Texas has 254 counties. Biden approved only 77 counties for disaster relief. The governor calls it an important first step but it falls far short of what Texas officials requested. Biden signed the declaration late Friday. It covers much of the Texas population.

WASHINGTON – The Equality Act is expected to advance in Congress this week. It's a controversial bill designed to overhaul the nation's civil rights laws to include LGBT Americans, but many worry it will trample on the rights of women and people of faith. Under the Equality Act, disagreement is considered discrimination. It includes gay marriage, biological males competing in women's sports, and doctors performing procedures--like gender reassignments--that go against their conscience.(Snip) Under the bill, Christian beliefs are unlawful. Churches could be prevented from requiring employees to abide by their biblical beliefs about marriage and differences between men and women.

President Biden is now two-for-two in making awful selections for his Cabinet.

The second is his selection of appeals court judge Merrick Garland to be attorney general. For those who don’t recall, Garland was nominated in March 2016 for a seat on the Supreme Court. The Obama administration sold him through the mainstream media as a potential court “moderate,” the best the Republicans could hope for.
