Alien Contact Laws- $5,000 Fine And Imprisonment

Apollo UFO Public Contact

Already Passed by Congress On October 5, 1982, Dr. Brain T. Clifford of the Pentagon declared at a press convention ("The Star", New York, Oct. 5, 1982) that make contact with among U.S. citizens and extra-terrestrials or their vehicles is strictly illegal. According to a legislation previously on the books  (Title fourteen, Part 1211 of the Code of Federal Polices, adopted on July 16, 1969, before the Apollo moon shots), any individual guilty of such get in touch with routinely gets a needed criminal to be jailed for one year and fined $5,000. 

The NASA administrator is empowered to determine with or without a listening to that a person or object has been "extraterrestrially exposed" and impose an indeterminate quarantine beneath armed guard, which could not be broken even by court order. There is no limit placed on the quantity of individuals who could thus be arbitrarily quarantined.

The definition of "extraterrestrial exposure" is left entirely up to NASA administrator, who is thus endowed with overall dictatorial power to be exercised at his slightest caprice, which is entirely contrary to the Constitution. According to Dr. Clifford, whose commanding officers have been assuring the public for the last 39 years that UFO's are absolutely nothing a lot more than hoaxes and delusions to be dismissed with a condescending smile: "This is truly no joke, it really is a extremely serious issue."

This legislation was buried in the 1,211th subsection of the 14th section of a batch of polices extremely couple of members of federal government most likely bothered to read in its entirety, the proverbial needle in the haystack, and was slipped onto the books with out public discussion. As a result from one day to the next we learn that, with out getting advised the public, in its infinite knowledge, the federal government of the United States has developed a complete new criminal class: UFO contactees. The lame justification presented by NASA as a sugar coating for this bitter pill is that extra-terrestrials may well have a virus that could wipe out the human race. This is surely one of the numerous prospects inherent is this sort of make contact with, but just as surely not the only one , and in by itself not a legitimate cause to make all contact illegal or to declare contactees criminals to be jailed and fined quickly.

It seems the principal effect of such a regulation would not be to avert contact, it would be to silence witnesses. If enforced, the legislation would prevent publication of contactee reports besides beneath address of anonymity, and unleash a contemporary inquisition in the Land of the Free of charge. Even so, it is unenforceable, so naturally absurd and unfair that the public will refuse to take it.

The citizens of the United States will greet it with a resounding Bronx cheer and chuckle it out of court, forcing it to be repealed. It must be changed by obviously worded laws, not open up to interpretation in a multitude of diverse approaches, humanely related to the contingency of E.T. speak to, debated and passed by Congress overtly as an alternative of slipped via "below the desk" without the public becoming knowledgeable. In accordance to NASA spokesman Fletcher Reel, the legislation as it stands is not right away relevant, but in case of need could speedily be made relevant. What this means is that it is ambiguously worded, so that it can be interpreted both one way or the other, as the government desires. It is undoubtedly not a coincidence that Dr. Clifford held his press conference for the duration of the period when the recognition of the film E.T. was at its peak. As E.T. portrayed a sort of extraterrestrial that was benevolent and lovable, the inference is that the press conference was meant to discourage attempts to talk or fraternize with UFO occupants. However, rather of having the intended effect, it backfired, leading to public furor. 

There might be some connection amongst this fiasco and the following semi-officially endorsed endeavor to deal with the matter of extra-terrestrials, the Tv film V, which was featured with repeat performances and maximum publicity by significant networks around the world. The aliens portrayed in V are the most horrifying and repulsive nightmares conceivable, who are defeated many thanks largely to a CIA strike man specializing in covert operations, the difficult man with the heart of gold who with the aid of the handsome hero saves the human race. 

This is apparent and transparent propaganda, intended to do what the government's prevalent use of dis-information, and Dr. Clifford's press conference about the absurd lemon of a regulation presently on the publications failed to do: squelch attempts to talk or fraternize with UFO occupants. One way to stay away from widespread panic at the announcement of the information that we are below surveillance by nonhuman smart beings with a technological innovation much much more innovative than our individual is to point out that this situation is practically nothing new, but has practically been heading on for millennia ( via ).
