Congress is one step closer to uncovering the truth behind UFOs after this week's testimony before the House Subcommittee on National Security, the Border, and Foreign Affairs. In what many are calling a historic hearing, the subcommittee heard from two former U.S. Navy pilots and a decorated military veteran and intelligence official-turned-whistleblower.
However, while there is an undeniable appeal to the popular belief of alien life visiting Earth, two well-known opinion hosts, Ben Shapiro and Matt Walsh, have very different views on the matter.
Shapiro, host of The Ben Shapiro Show on the Daily Wire, has been one of the most outspoken skeptics of alien life. Earlier this week, he called the story of UFOs "bull crap" and suggested that the only alien life on Earth is former presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders. In true logical form, Shapiro believes that if so many people have seen UFOs, then there would be credible evidence all over the internet.
On the other hand, Walsh was adamant in his stance that Shapiro committed an "unspoken assumption" against the possibility of aliens.
"If you are already committed to that response, you are openly committed to that response before you even look at the evidence," said Walsh during a recent segment. "That prejudges the conclusion and does not take into account the evidence."
It comes as no surprise that the Department of Defense said in a statement that the investigation of UFOs, led by the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), "has not discovered any verifiable information to substantiate claims that any programs regarding the possession or reverse-engineering of extraterrestrial materials have existed in the past or exist currently."
But despite the government's strong stance and previous skepticism, witness and whistleblower David Grusch, an Air Force veteran and former member of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, made a stunning claim during the hearing. When asked about UFOs, Grusch argued that he knows the "exact locations" of UAPs from interviewing over forty witnesses over a four year period. Furthermore, he said that these locations have been provided to an inspector general and "some" to the congressional intelligence panels.
It isn't clear whether or not the truth about aliens and UFOs will come to light. But while we don't have any definite answers, one thing is for sure - the debate between Ben Shapiro and Matt Walsh on the subject continues to spark an interesting dialogue.
My friend @MattWalshBlog thinks he destroyed me with "facts and logic" over aliens and UFOs...but here's why he's wrong.
