Venezuelan Asylum Achieved, Snowden reveals UFO Documents
Kilgoar, Internet Chronicle, Jul 5 2013

CARACAS, Venezuela – Edward Snowden, the leaker of NSA surveillance documents, was granted asylum in Venezuela on Friday. With safe harbors in sight, Snowden was willing to share shocking and world-shattering exclusive secret government documents with The Internet Chronicle. Snowden’s testimony was as follows:

The highest levels of government don’t know what to do about UFOs, and the official story that they are all merely weather balloons or natural phenomena have been clearly dismissed. If anything, these documents speak about UFOs as if they are surely guided by an intelligence beyond our own. As it turns out, the most credible and inexplicable sightings are of vehicles that have been spotted leaving the sea floor at hydrothermal vents and directly entering solar orbit. Because ballistic missile tracking systems and deep-sea sonar are kept as state secrets, scientists don’t have access to data about these objects. However, most of the contractors at DARPA are sure that there is a species more intelligent than homo sapiens living in the mantle of the Earth. It makes sense, if you think about it, because that is the only place where conditions have been more or less stable for billions of years. Extremophiles may live at different temperatures than us, but they have been able to thrive and develop intelligence at a seemingly accelerated rate. That’s not true, because they’ve simply evolved at the same rate, but without many of the vicissitudes which set back surface life. The president receives daily briefings about their activities. Analysts believe their technology to be so far advanced that we stand little chance of survival in any potential war. The general sentiment is that we are but ants from their perspective, so there is little chance they would empathize or attempt to communicate with us, and the current contingency plan is to detonate nuclear weapons in deep caverns to ‘sting’ the foe we have no hope of destroying in hopes it would discourage further attacks.

Critics may allege that what the 30-year-old former NSA and CIA contractor can state with authority about our ultraterrestrial neighbors is already well-known. But the Ground-Penetrating Radar, or GPR, scans, which The Internet Chronicle has shared and confirmed with sources within intelligence community, will only serve to underscore popular bitterness over strategically timed earthquakes and tsunamis. Just as PRISM shined a new light on goings-on in NSA’s ECHELON computer systems, revealed in the 1990s, the vast complexes of underground cities, laser-etched from pure diamond, apparent in the GPR scans will transform public debate about the balance between liberty and security.

The Internet Chronicle is a satirical webzine, like The Onion but much more so. Another recent story, Lady GaGa diagnosed with brain cancer, produced the following chat result:

    Someone must be a Radiohead fan. 🙂

    … Up above
    Aliens hover
    Making home movies
    For the folks back home,

    Of all these weird creatures
    Who lock up their spirits,
    Drill holes in themselves
    And live for their secrets.

    They’re all uptight, uptight,
    Uptight, uptight,
    Uptight, uptight. …

    Subterranean Homesick Alien, Radiohead

    the tweet YES! YES! YES! FUCK YOU AMERICA! sounds equally if not more fake, unless he is some kind of deep agent provacateur.

    and not even sarcastic, just plain phoney, as if designed to turn large segments of possibly wavering population off and drive them back to pavlovian haven.

    in somewhat (un)related vein, in my experience (yes, anecdotal) most americans, however educated and worldly they think they are, are symphatetic to the palestinian plight yet completely and unquestioningly sold on the official gospel of everything else; 9/11, holocaust, etc.

    they blame the pussy government for inviting jihadis with generous offers of scholarships and social benefits and rant about jihadis waging a senseless war against the essential goodness of united snakes.
