Evidence Shows UFO Tech ‘100 Percent’ Not From Earth, but That’s Not a Threat: Rep. Tim Burchett

Extraterrestrial beings might not be a threat. Otherwise, they could have already used their superior technologies to “turn us into a charcoal briquette,” said Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) after claiming to have seen classified UFO footage.

Mr. Burchett, who will lead an anticipated House Oversight Committee hearing on UFOs—now commonly referred to as unidentified anomalous phenomena or UAPs—said in a July 2 interview with space science podcast Event Horizon that he has been shown footage that has not been released to the public.

“Have you seen compelling evidence that we’re actually seeing something really weird in the skies that might affect national security or global security, that might not be from this Earth?” John Michael Godier, host of the podcast, asked during the interview.

“One hundred percent. No question,” the Republican congressman replied, adding that he has yet, however, to see anything “dangerous” enough to justify keeping the public in the dark about it in the name of national security.

“We’ve been dealing [with government coverups] since at least [the Roswell incident of] 1947, probably since about 1897 in what was the Aurora, Texas, ‘UFO crash,’” the Republican congressman said during the interview.

He then told host John Michael Godier that if those extraterrestrial beings have technology unlike anything we know on Earth, they could “turn us into a charcoal briquette.”

“If they can travel light years or at the speeds that we’ve seen, defy physics as we know it, fly underwater but don’t show a heat trail, then we are vastly out of our league,” the congressman continued. “We can’t handle it. We couldn’t fight them off what we wanted to. That’s why I don’t think they’re a threat to us, or they would already have been.”

When asked about the upcoming House UAP hearing, Mr. Burchett said he wanted to make sure the hearing included testimonies of “creditable witnesses,” such as pilots and scientists who “have seen something out of the ordinary.” He also said he doesn’t expect that any Pentagon official would show up with any meaningful information.

The Department of Defense is just a huge bureaucracy,“ he said. ”All bureaucracies do is to justify [their] existence. I have no time for them.”

The hearing is prompted by a government whistleblower’s extraordinary claims that the U.S. government had obtained not only “intact and partially intact vehicles of non-human origin,” but also their occupants’ bodies.

The whistleblower, David Charles Grusch, told science website The Debrief that there is a decades-long, ongoing competition with other countries to “identify crashes/landings and retrieve the material for exploitation/reverse engineering.”

Mr. Grusch, a 36-year-old combat air veteran of Afghanistan, was also part of the UAP Task Force, a program run by the Office of Naval Intelligence to investigate UAP sightings. From 2019 to 2021, he served on the task force as the representative of the National Reconnaissance Office, one of the “Big Five” U.S. intelligence agencies, which is in charge of designing and operating spy satellites.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), another longtime advocate for transparency on the U.S. government’s involvement with extraterrestrial phenomena, also revealed last month that he had been approached by several more intelligence whistleblowers with “high clearances,” who said they had ‘first-hand’ knowledge of UAP programs.

“We’re trying to gather as much of that information as we can,” Mr. Rubio said in a June 26 interview with NewsNation. “Frankly, a lot of them are very fearful of their jobs ... fearful of harm coming to them.”

Mr. Burchett said This is what he hopes to overcome in the upcoming UFO hearings and allow people to freely speak about what they know.

“Let’s just turn loose the reports, quit with the redacted reports that look like Swiss cheese with everything whited out or blacked out, and just give us all the information and let the American public decide,” he told the podcast host.

“We can handle it. Stop with the arrogance. Stop with the corruption. Let’s get it all out there.”
