Stephen Bassett, who set up Paradigm Research Group in 1996 to lobby for the extraterrestrial “truth embargo” to be lifted, exclusively told Daily Star Online that if not for Donald Trump being elected President in 2017 we would already be living in a post-disclosure world.
However, he now thinks 2020 could be the year that governments and militaries worldwide lift the lid on alien visitors – with the US Navy officially designating mysterious sightings as “unidentified aerial phenomena ” a good sign.
“Disclosure is getting very close,” he said.
“In fact, had it not been for the extraordinary events of the last election in the United States we would already be a couple of years into the post-disclosure world.”
Speaking to this site before the process to impeach President Trump had started, Stephen said the political situation has made it very difficult for disclosure to happen but now he had real hope.
He added: “If we could get this little political problem in the United States resolved and get back to a normal, functioning government, though I’m sure it will never be perfect, I think this ET thing and the To The Stars Academy will explode.
“They have got more stuff to release but they have been holding it back and this issue could go wild.
“This means disclosure could easily happen in 2020, which I really love and will be cool, because what is 20:20?
To The Stars Academy, founded by Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge, has previously posted declassified US military videos of what was said to be evidence of UFOs.
Stephen, who thinks aliens have been turning off our nuclear weapons to show us how useless they are, suspects that once the “truth embargo” is lifted ETs will engage in “full contact” with humans.
He said this will probably lead to aliens sharing advanced medicine with us, which will save us from the antibiotic crisis.
NASA will no longer be “forced to cut ISS live feed” when the shuttle encounters phenomena, he added, which would lead to a golden age of space exploration.
