Colombian Priest Claims that President Invited Him to Perform Exorcism on Palace, then Retracts Statements

By: Alex Kack

Padre Chucho, a Catholic priest who has become something of a celebrity in Colombia, has recently found himself walking back pecuilar statements he had made on television.

The retraction centers on claims made by Chucho that, new Colombian President Ivan Daque had requested that the priest come to Colombia’s famed presidential palace, Casa de Narino, to perform an exorcism.

The priest claimed that President Daque had requested his presence to “cast demons out” of the palace, while President Daque is a practicing Catholic, there is no evidence to support that he believes in literal demonic possession or hauntings or has sought related services from the Church at any time.

Chucho later retracted the statement on social media, stating that no one from the President’s administration had contacted him about

This is not the first time Chucho, who’s real name is Father Jesús Hernán Orjuela, has spoken about exorcism. He rose to fame as a host on morning talk show where he would often discuss exorcisms as well as other issues related to religion and the Catholic faith.

Government Program Researched Stargates, Other Dimension

By: Alex Kack

The United States governments Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, originally disclosed in a shocking New York Times article in 2017, funded research into a variety of other theoretical and supernatural phenomena. These new revelations come in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.
Many of these topics have been the hall mark of science fiction for decades. Among the subjects studied were traveling through worm holes or “stargates”, warp drives, invisibility cloaking, ‘high energy laser weapons’ and the viability of experimental new metals.

Prior to this disclosure it was presumed that Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, had primarily served to investigate alleged UFO sightings.

Harvard researchers say mysterious structure may be alien probe

Oumuamua is the name scientists have given to a mysterious object traveling through space and into our solar system. The object is of unknown origin although scientists do know that it originated outside of our solar system, making it the first known object to have done so. It was first observed towards the end of 2017.
Now researchers from Harvard University are advancing the idea that it "may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization." A statement they make in a to be published paper in The Astrophysical Journal Letters.
The researchers are careful to state this is far from certain, however there are abnormalities about the speed and trajectory of the object that have confused them and other researchers.
Namely that the object sped up as it passed our Sun, something that should have naturally caused the object to slow.
When first observed researchers at SETI attempted to observe the object for a vari…
