A look at the Commission Wording.
1. Extraterrestrial intelligent being
means a form of
life assumed to exist or originate from outside Earth or its atmosphere.
Are we going to base a public commission based on an assumption?
2. Extraterrestrial vehicle means a non-living method of transportation
originating from outside the Earth of its atmosphere.
Why if we are
assuming that there are extraterrestrials would they not
have a biological transport device? If they do are we not supposed to
study it as well?
3. Exopolitics means the study of the key individuals, political or
other institutions, and processes associated with extraterrestrial life.
Sec. 2-255.60 Legislative intent.
The People of the City and County of Denver hereby declare that:
1. The presence of extraterrestrial intelligent beings and
extraterrestrial vehicles on Earth, and within Earth’s atmosphere, has
been confirmed by credible evidence, official government documents, and
whistleblowers formerly working for the U.S. Government and government
By agreeing with
this you either have seen “official Government
documents” that are not released, which makes you either a person who
is breaking the agreement with the Government for a security clearance
or admittance to being a Spy who has looked at unreleased Secret
documents. You would also be agreeing that there is “credible evidence”
that has been collected and researched to conclude that it is
extraterrestrial in nature (which it has not). This is a classic
example of “Argument from Authority” this means that regardless of the
credibility of the source, it is assumed that they are right because
they are in a position of authority.
2. Evidence of extraterrestrial beings has been known by United States
presidents since President Franklin Roosevelt, including President
Ronald Regan as disclosed by his presentation to the United Nations
regarding extraterrestrial matters;
This is another
claim based on assumption that they have some sort of
inside information of the Presidents knowledge. This information
usually comes from conspiracy minded people who are from the E.T.
believer camp and not from any official sources. The statement
that President Ronald Regan made was “In our obsession with antagonisms
of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of
humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us
recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our
differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat
from outside of this world. And yet I ask - is not an alien force
already among us? “ This was used as an example of a universal threat
to all of the world and not a statement of his admittance of the
existence of extraterrestrial life.
3. Since at least 1947, the United States government has denied
knowledge of this evidence, thus placing the public and local
governments at potential risk and disadvantage;
The reference to
1947 is due to the “Roswell incident” which has been
explained/debunked by both the Government as well as private citizens.
This is only considered to be a real event by people in the
extraterrestrial believer communities.
4. The United States government has suppressed, and withheld from the
public, evidence of advanced clean energy, transportation and other
technologies of extraterrestrial origin. These technologies could
potentially offer substantial economic relief for our most pressing
social and economic concerns, including a reduction of pollution and at
least partial replacement of fossil fuels with affordable non-polluting
energy sources, and other advanced technologies.
This statement once
again assumes that you have some kind of inside
information. The section itself claims that the government has withheld
this information from the public. How can you sign and declare this
document true with assumed claims like this? This also claims that this
information that you are assuming includes clean energy technologies.
How can we assume this when the statement itself states that they have
suppressed this information from the public? How can we assume that an
extraterrestrial form of energy would be different from our own or not
be deadly to human life forms? This is one of the common claims of the
people behind the “Disclosure” movement; they claim clean-free energy,
better medical technologies but have no proof of these other than the
assumptions that they are making you agree with by signing this
5. Local government officials have rejected or ignored the need to
prepare city personnel and citizens for potential contact of
interactions with extraterrestrial intelligent beings of their vehicles
a. Multiple federal government agencies have acknowledged the presence
of extraterrestrial intelligent beings, through hundreds of official
documents, but have not informed our citizens about how to
intelligently and responsibly respond to UFO/extraterrestrial
b. Hundreds of top military leaders, government scientists,
government contractors, commercial airline pilots, air traffic
controllers and NASA officials, many with Top Secret clearances, have
been disclosing their person experiences and involvement in interacting
with UFOs not from Earth and, in some cases, their apparent
extraterrestrial intelligent occupants;
c. A credible non-profit organization has received over ten
thousand (10,000) written reports of UFO sightings, primarily in the
U.S., during the period Nov. 2005 – April 2008. The total number of
reports nationally in 2008 was more than twice the number from the
previous year. There have been more than 1,000 written reports of
Colorado UFO sightings submitted to the same organization during the
period of Jan. 2000 – April 2008;
d. Government denial, ridicule, and a lack of public awareness about
this credible evidence prevent the responsible evaluation of potential
risks and benefits for the safety, health and cultural awareness of
Denver residents and visitors in relation to potential interactions
with extraterrestrial intelligent beings;
Why would the local
government be concerned about the repercussions of
an extraterrestrial contact? If extraterrestrials were to somehow
appear the Federal government would be in control and the local
government would have no jurisdiction.
a. This statement
once again point out that the source of the
information is either coming from people who assume that this is true
or a person who is somehow breaking their government clearance. If
these documents exist and you agree that they do by signing this, where
b. This is another
case of “Argument from authority” meaning that just
because someone has an authoritative title does not make them any more
credible. The average number of people with delusional psychological
disorders is less within the people with Top Secret and government jobs
who have “come forward” about the extraterrestrial issue in the
employment in these types of jobs than the general populace of the
country. This means that the government is screening employees
well enough to have less people with these types of psychological
conditions than the general public.
“credible non-profit organization” that they are not
naming is MUFON (The Mutual U.F.O. Network) this organization is based
in Colorado and has been collecting reports of U.F.O. sighting for over
40 years. Recently the International Director of MUFON has come out
publically stating that the Stan Romanek case which the Denver E.T.
Commission has based most of its “evidence” on is not credible.
d. This statement is
based on assumption again due to the government’s
lack of releasing the information that you agree that they have when
you sign this document.
6. At present our government does not have any protocols for:
a. Responsibly evaluating, documenting, and acting on citizen reports
of encounters of interactions with extraterrestrial intelligent beings,
regardless of the highly unusual and credible evidence that may attend
such encounters and interactions; or
b. Referring such reports to properly trained city personnel, or
private professional individuals or organizations that have responsibly
dealt with such matters in a professional manner;
According to the
previous statements in this document the government
has already documented and interacted with extraterrestrial intelligent
beings, so why would they not have protocols? The “credible evidence”
that they claim has been documented has not been shown or researched by
the general public so how do they know that it exists? If there are
groups that have dealt with these matters in a professional manner in
the past, why can we not continue to have them take care of what they
would be referred to take care of in the first place without government
7. There is enough credible evidence available, independent of the
United States government about extraterrestrial affairs; and
8. The creation of an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission will help to
ensure the health, safety, and cultural awareness of Denver residents
and visitors and, ultimately, facilitate the most harmonious, peaceful,
mutually respectful, and beneficial coexistence possible between
extraterrestrial intelligent beings and human beings.
Once again they are
making claims of “credible evidence” but have shown
none for you to agree with when signing this document. We already have
departments that ensure the health and safety of citizens of the City
of Denver and we cannot assume any of the other parts of this statement
are true solely based on assumptions with no proof.
The legislative intent of this division is to create a responsible,
responsive, commons sense strategy for dealing with issues related to
the presence of extraterrestrial intelligent beings on Earth. To that
end, the People of the City and County of Denver hereby establish an
Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission, which shall have the following
1. To obtain and provide the most accurate, complete, credible, and
relevant information available to city government personnel and
residents about extraterrestrial intelligent beings on Earth;
2. To assist residents and visitors in reporting sighting or, or
interactions with, extraterrestrial intelligent beings or their
vehicles, and refer them to proper and most appropriate public of
private service agencies;
3. To inform people of the implication of encounters with
extraterrestrial beings or their vehicles;
4. To develop protocols for peaceful and diplomatic contact with
extraterrestrial beings in the event of contact;
5. To fund the Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission entirely from
grants, gifts and donations, without requiring any fiscal outlay form
the city budget; and
6. To make expenditures for the Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission
1. They claim in
this document that there are already private credible
organizations exist conducting this type of service. Why do we need a
government agency repeating something that is already being done?
2. Once again they
have already claimed that these referral services
are already in place.
3. How can we know
the implications without having ever had documented
4. Why would we need
to develop protocols if we agree with this
document that states we have already interacted and dealt with them in
5. The City and
County of Denver has already spent money on this
Commission. The multiple meetings held with the City Council, Counting
of Ballots, Inclusion on any upcoming ballots all cost the city money.
If the Commission is approved it will have to use City offices, have a
representative (at least part time) as a liaison between the city and
the Commission, and any revue or updates to the City from the
Commission would require city employees to be present.
6. This fund would also have to be under the watch of the City so it
would cost the City money.
Sec. 2-255-61 Commission Created.
There is hereby created an extraterrestrial affairs commission. The
commission shall consist of seven(7) regular volunteer members approved
by the Mayor who shall give preference to four (4) residents of
Denver, Colorado who satisfy the selection criteria. Each approved
member must be a knowledgeable expert in some area related to
extraterrestrial intelligent beings or their vehicles. Members who are
not Denver residents may participate from anywhere in the universe by
any means available. The commission shall include:
· One expert in
witness testimony from people who have previously had a top secret
clearance and had direct personal close encounters with
extraterrestrial beings or their vehicles. Such expert must have
written at least one book or three scholarly articles focusing on
whistleblower testimonies and/or five years work experience with an
organization specializing in whistleblower testimonies.
· One expert
with a Ph.D. in the “natural sciences” i.e. physics, astronomy, or
· One expert
with a Ph.D. in the “social sciences” i.e. sociology, political
· A medical
doctor who is a published author with expertise on the
· One expert
with at least five years experience in investigation of
UFO/Extraterrestrial encounters as evidenced in their authoring of at
least one book or three articles in scholarly journals.
· One expert
with a certificate or diploma in Exopolitics or who works with a
UFO/Exopolotical organization with non-profit 501( c ) (3) status in
the U.S. or its equivalent in other nations.
expert who has consulted at least one hundred people regarding their
alleged close encounters with extraterrestrial beings and has a Ph.D.
in psychology or another suitable social science discipline.
“members approved by
the Mayor”, If this is the case the cost of
facilities and the time of the Mayor plus any assistants would come
from the City budget.
Expert one –
This would be a person who would be willing to go
against his/her top secret clearance to confirm that they believed they
had an alien encounter, who is also an author with experience in
whistleblower testimony? Sounds like the position was hand
written for someone that Jeff Peckman knows.
Expert two – This is
a good choice for any research team to give it
Expert three – This
is another good choice to gain credibility.
Expert four – An MD
who is a specialist in U.F.O.’s who is also an
author? Sounds like another one of Jeff Peckman’s friends.
Expert five – Five
years experience in UFO investigation with one book
and three articles published in a Scholarly journal. Not only does this
sound like another person that Jeff created the job for but there is no
“Scholarly journal” that publishes UFO experiences.
Expert six – Has a
certificate or degree in Exopolitics and works for a
non-profit group. Another job created for a known person? And how
credible is a degree/certificate in Exopolitics?
Expert seven – Has
consulted with at least 100 people about close
encounters and a suitable social science degree. This is another job
created for a specific person.
Sec. 2-255.62 Powers and duties.
The powers and duties of the Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission shall
be as follows:
1. To establish an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission fund and to
solicit and accept gifts, grants and donations;
2. To obtain and make available on the official City of Denver website
the objectives of the commission, and any progress or other reports;
3. To display in the most cost-effective manner on the City of Denver
web site, and otherwise, the most credible evidence and witness
testimony regarding the existence and activities of extraterrestrial
intelligent beings on earth;
4. To evaluate potential risks and benefits for the safety, health, and
cultural awareness of Denver residents and visitors in relation to
potential encounters and interactions with extraterrestrial intelligent
5. To establish simple and reliable procedures for residents to report
to local government authorities any sightings of, or contact with,
extraterrestrial intelligent beings of their vehicles;
6. To refer residents and visitors to properly trained city personnel
or private professionals, as necessary, to address valid concerns
resulting from sightings of, or contacts with, extraterrestrial
intelligent beings of their vehicles;
7. To expend all monies related to the Extraterrestrial Affairs
Commission fund to achieve the purpose of this commission;
8. To report quarterly by the 15th of February, May, August and
November to the mayor and city council on progress in achieving the
stated purposes of the commission; and
9. To seek public input regarding present and future Extraterrestrial
Affairs Commission activities and citywide needs, including at least
two open hearings per year.
1. The solicitation
of gifts, etc. for funding is acceptable, but will
it be able to collect enough money to fund the commission?
2. To have access to
the city web site there are many requirements.
Training from the City IT department, Access to a City computer to
access the intra-net, and a background screening for the persons
placing content on the site. All of these requirements cost the City of
Denver money. This site also limits the type of content by design
so the specifics of the expectations of the commission need to be more
3. This is another
example of cost to the City. Computer use, Storage
space and bandwidth are something that costs the City of Denver money.
In this statement we also assume that we have proof of “the existence
and activities of extraterrestrial intelligent beings on earth”.
4. This statement
contradicts the previous statement saying that
the commission will evaluate potential extraterrestrial contact. In the
prior statement it claims that we already have “the existence and
activities of extraterrestrial intelligent beings on earth”.
5. This statement
seems to just place a conduit between the city and an
organization such as MUFON. Which would make such organizations
“government approved” and maybe even open for government funding.
6. This statement is
nothing more than a different wording of #5
7. Does this mean
that they have to make sure to spend all of the money
that would be allocated to the commission? What if they had an overage
or not enough funding?
8. By having
quarterly reporting to the Mayor and the City Council they
would once again incur cost to the City of Denver by requiring city
employees to attend these meetings in City owned buildings.
9. Two open public
hearing per year would cost the City of Denver money
for facilities, staffing, publication of notes, etc.
Sec. 2-255.63 Procedures
The commission is authorized to adopt bylaws and internal guidelines
governing its operations and to promulgate rules and regulations as
necessary to achieve the purpose of this division.
They can create
their own rules?
Sec. 2-255.64 Staffing and administrative support.
Staffing and other administrative support for the Extraterrestrial
Affairs Commission shall be determined by the commission, as necessary
to achieve the purposes of this division.
They still have not
spelled out what goals the commission has, other
than to have access to the city website. So how do they know what
is “necessary to achieve the purposes of this division”.
Sec. 2-255.65 Relation to city departments and agencies.
Departments, offices, and agencies of the City and County of Denver
that are responsible for administering the systems and related services
shall cooperate with the Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission to support
the purpose of this division.
This means that
because they deal with “health, safety, education, web
site, Mayors office & the City Council they will have access to all
of the divisions involved in those fields. This could be dangerous due
to the employee level access that would have to be allowed. Do they
require the members of the Commission to pass a city background check?
Sec. 2-255.66 Implementation and Enforcement.
By the effective date, as set forth below, the City and County of
Denver shall adopt all measures necessary for the proper and effective
implementation and enforcement of this article.
Who decides what is
“necessary for the proper and effective
implementation and enforcement”?
New claims against us...
Mr. Peckman is now claiming that a couple of “ghost-hunter wannabes are
on a mission to get attention for themselves by continuously attacking
Stan Romanek and me”
His comments also include statements that we are “nut cases” and
“trying to get themselves into the news since they don’t do anything
We would like to address the issue of the ballot initiative and its
impact on the people of the City of Denver, the reputation of the City
of Denver and his ongoing campaign to discredit us.
The “ghost-hunter wannabes” that he mentions are the Rocky Mountain
Paranormal Research Society. We have been involved in paranormal claims
investigations for over 11 years and even if Mr. Peckman does not want
to admit it, before his little commission issue we have been involved
with world-wide media for quite some time.
Mr. Peckman claims that we are trying to act professional and unethical
and just trying to gain media attention for ourselves. He has
even gone so far as to claim that we have never said why we oppose the
creation of an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission. We have stated the
facts behind the claims and why we oppose it in detail many times, but
Mr. Peckman would rather that those facts be covered up by making wild
statements about us and flat out lies about our tactics and opinions
about the issue.
The facts are that Mr. Peckman wants to promote unproven U.F.O. claims
through a public resource to give it credibility. These claims need to
be proven to the public before the resources of the City are used to
push a personal agenda. This shows the tactics that Mr. Peckman and his
colleagues are taking to discredit an opposing viewpoint. While he does
have the right to state his beliefs, we also have the right to voice an
It is time to look at both sites of the issue and allow the public to
decide for themselves, not cover-up the opposition and try to make them
go away. We thought that cover-ups were something that Mr. Peckman was
opposed to, but it seems that as long as he is the instigator of the
cover-up that is ok.
