Wednesday Humor: Iran Has "Incontrovertible Proof" That US Is Run By Aliens

Tyler Durden's picture

While some will not be surprised, Al Arabiya reports that Iran's FARS News Agency claimed in a recent report that:

"The United States' domestic and international policy has been driven by an 'alien/extraterrestrial intelligence agenda' since 1945."

The "incontrovertible proof" supporting the revelations was (apparently) found in a Federal Security Service (FSB) report, carried out by American computer specialist Edward Snowden - and is confirmed (somewhat amazingly) by former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer in the following interview.



Very impressive to see Sophie (the interviewer) keep a straight face - whether you believe the man or not...



As a gentle reminder, this chap was in charge of Canadian military in the 60s!


Via Al Arabiya:



Snowden reportedly contacted the Guardian’s columnist Glenn Greenwald telling him, according to Fars, that there “were actually two governments in the United States, the one that was elected, and the other, secret regime, governing in the dark.”


The agency added that Snowden’s revelations were confirmed as “accurate” by former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer, during an appearance he made on Russia Today’s program SophieCo.


Hellyer said: “This information is top secret in a way that the governments aren't talking about it, but if you listen to whistleblowers and the people are had worked in the industry and who know what is going on, there is just a lot of information out there and it doesn't take very long to get your hands on it.


He said 80 percent of UFO reports analyzed by the Canadian defense ministry during his time in office were not real, but “there were 15 or 20 percent for which there was no explanation and there genuinely unidentified flying objects.”

stupid propaganda for the sheeple.

The U.S. Is run by dual-citizens.

Dumb Iranians.

that I agree with... and these people do have their own cult/religion...   but my propaganda statement was about the nazi story being attributed to Iran.  classic disinfo to make Iran look bad.  Iran, of all countries, knows exactly what little fascist war mongering state in the ME controls the United States government... and though they ironically act like Nazis, they are nothing of the sort.

They prefer to be called "undocumented extraterrestrials".

OK.  I'm about to be destroyed here, but many Christians believe that aliens and UFOs are in fact demons, and were mentioned in parts of the old testament that were not canonized.  Reference the Book of Enoch.  Ok, that's it.  Now you can think I'm insane.

non-Christians too...

I can't believe the Tylers (the "new" Tylers?) did not think to mention that Snowden did not say the country is run by aliens.  Saying the elected government is a front for a secret government is hardly crazy.  Of course if I were the CIA, I would go ahead and put out a news story that Snowden says the U.S. is run by aliens in order to make the entire concept of a shadow government sound absurd.  Hopefully this story will be developed further and not end with "Wednesday humor."  Surely the original Tylers would have done so.  And I would add that the new Tylers are not aliens.  Just not the original.

The laws of physics are no different in our solar system than they are throughout the cosmos.

Considering how young our civiliazation is it would be a statistical anomaly if the environment that lead to the creation of life on our planet did not occur elsewhere, and would also be a statistical anomaly if it did not occur elsewhere long before we were here. It is unrealistic to think that if there were others out there that they would not find our radio signals with precise coordinates of our planet in relation to a cosmological map of the pulsars which each have their own unique signature.

As a firm believer in Jesus Christ I will be the first to say that science and religion need not be at odds with each other. It is the psyop program that wishes to turn people away from our creator and keep us from realizing that they have no power over us, because we have already won victory over death.

Anyone who truly understands the science of DNA and switch genes will realize that it is a programming language, and that we are a product of intelligent design. Any other beings in the universe are a product of the same, and by no means should be worshipped as greater than us.

+1, believe that to the T.

all the proof you should want

it seems supremely arrogant to assume that earth is the only place that life exists?

You know what Donnie Rumsfeld said about known unknowns..

of course a hoax wrapped in a lie called project bluebeam will keep the charade going for another 100 years

I get it now.  The engineer part is a joke.  Engineers usually rely on hard data, at least the ones I know anyway.  More than enough data.  This bullshit is what they throw out there the create your doubt.

ACP's picture

Interesting that a joke article has produced one of the most interesting chains in a while.

LetThemEatRand's picture

What's key to me about this article is that the new Tylers didn't get the joke.  

Tijuana Donkey Show's picture

Wednesday humor? I think that outlines a joke LTER. 

LetThemEatRand's picture

The article juxtaposes the senile Canadian with the Snowden story, leaving the impression that the "humor" is Snowden's non-existent statement that America is run by aliens.  You'd have to delve through three layers of irony to see the humor as being that the CIA planted the story.  The original Tylers would not have created this misimpression or required mental gymnastics to see the humor.

ACP's picture

Possible, but what I miss is that there are no more inter-thread Tyler comments.

LetThemEatRand's picture

I'm guessing original Tyler would jump in on one of these and tell me to fuck off.

Still ZH is the best watering hole in town, but should things go south, the solution lies in our own hands. What do you think of a community-driven news site, spun off by ZH authors and contributors? Ad-free, spy-free. I'll write it for you, if we want to use it. No Javascript. Just basic HTML and CSS.

LetThemEatRand's picture

I'd love it and I would certainly contribute in my free time, such as it is.   I wish I had time/money to do more.

LetThemEatRand's picture

I need to call it a night but if you're serious I'll be around.  I'm guessing a bunch of others here would jump on board and your biggest problem would be sifting through the BS.  If you have the technical means, I'll bet you'd have content if you have time to sift.

Skateboarder's picture

I am out also. The idea is up for reals. I don't have time to participate in research or sifting. I would merely play facilitator of technology. The design is not difficult, and the scalability portion I would have to learn about. I wouldn't mind making the site and giving it to responsible hands like HH, Cog, WB, GW, and gang. I'm busy as fuck with work but I think this site needs to be made at some point pretty soon. I'm not versed in making web pages scale and fit to every browser on every OS and shit, but I can make something simple that is likely to show up corect on most setups. If other ZHers want to participate in a truly community-driven website, a github project can be created and people can work on a website once a plan and architecture are devised. Many ways to go about this. I'm just stirring up a pot.

One question: Assuming the creation of the universe at the "Big Bang" and time blah blah blah (should have read "Idiots guide to a History of Time"), that would mean that all life had the same "start time." So, given the nature of..well, mother nature; why would any other civilization, be any more advanced than our own?

I up-voted you, but I'm still not convinced that any other life forms out there would have managed to acheive so much more than we humans, given that we all started the race at the same time..

Ranger4564's picture

You've heard of "conditions conducive to life" yeah? Just because the big bang blah blah blah happened doesn't mean that the environment was there to support life. There may have been molecules /  microbes being scattered around but they could not thrive in some locations and could thrive in other locations. The Earth was molten for a long long time before it cooled enough to allow life to exist. Life may have tried to start / land / whatever, but it was not possible until the first microbes took hold.
