tv   CNN Tonight  CNN  May 18, 2022 6:00pm-7:00pm PDT

6:00 pm
the supreme court with a ruling expected soon. the u.s. marshal service is working to provide around the clock security at the justices' homes. the department of homeland security is warning law enforcement partners of potential danger to the public and members of the court. the news continues. let's hand it over to laura coates and cnn tonight. anderson, thank you. that interview you had with the family of the woman whose husband was in the nursing home. it was empowering to know their true story and just so tragic. thank you for that interview. >> married more than 60 years. just incredible. >> just trying to preserve the dignity and going every day and him not knowing. my heartbreaks and it still does. i'm laura coates, and this is cnn tonight. the great cliff hanger remains just that this evening,
6:01 pm
suspenseful. more than 24 hour was aa primary race closed, key to which party holds the senate next year, the biggest primary of the year has stretched into night two, with the two gop senate kcandidates deadlocked. david mccormick and trump endorsed mehmet oz. thousands of mail-in ballots are still being counted. and even after they're counted, this dead heat race is likely headed to an automatic recount under pennsylvania law because of the slim margin. so, both oz and mccormick have already acknowledged that still isn't over. in fact, there's a process. >> we have ten of thousands of mail-in ballots that have not been counted. we're not going to have a result tonight. when all the votes are tallied, i am confident we will win. >> the process remains. but here comes donald trump today on his social media site,
6:02 pm
ripping a page right out of his own playbook that his endorsed candidate, oz, just go ahead and declare victory. why? he said so it's, quote, harder for them to cheat. more baseless conspiracies based on this notion of mail-in ballots. so, all eyes remain on this key battleground state that trump lost in 2020. the ex-president can celebrate the resounding victory of one of the most active supporters of his lie. extreme far right candidate doug mastriano. he soundly won the gop nomination for pennsylvania governor yesterday. it's a huge win for him undoubtedly. but for his party, perhaps that's more questionable. see, a lot of republicans in pennsylvania and frankly elsewhere aren't too happy that mastriano is the one on the ballot going into the election going against the current p.a.
6:03 pm
attorney general. mastriano attended the stop the steal rally, even seen walking past breached barricades that day. many republicans fear he might be easy for shapiro to knock out in november. and interestingly enough, shapiro thinks so too. he was actually apparently hoping that mastriano would be the one to run against him. and remember, whoever the governor will be, will appoint a secretary of state in pennsylvania, who will actually oversee elections, including the one in 2024. with mastriano trying to get a free and fair election overthrown from back in 2020, that could worry a lot of voters in november. meanwhile, there's the blowout victory in the democratic primary for senate last night. john fetterman winning that nomination from his hospital bed. recall that he had a stroke and a defibrillator implanted to regulate his heart rhythm. but the medical emergency did
6:04 pm
not stop him from advancing to the general election in november, where he's going to face off with, well, either mehmet oz or dave mccormick. that's the big question. which one will it be? which republican will go against fetterman? and could meterman's health issues become a bigger issue for him in the general election? and what did his win and other race outcomes say about the strength maybe of progressivism in america? i want to bring in nina turner, former ohio state senator and former co-chair of bernie sanders presidential campaign. she recently lost her own bid for congress. and also scott jennings, former adviser, senator minority leader mitch mcconnell. welcome to you both. let me begin with you, scott. when people are thinking about this primary and this notion of trump saying, just go ahead and declare the victory because you don't want those pes si, well,
6:05 pm
mailed in ballots of getting in your way. you have some memory flashbacks of what happened in places like pennsylvania, for example, in 2020, and like in georgia in containment of the big lie. when you hear trump say that, what comes to mind for you? what is your reaction? >> well, it worked out great for him, right? it's not like the country was plunged into a massive crisis we're still dealing with today. >> not at all. >> by the way, he's recommending that we disenfranchise a bunch of republicans, people in his own party. this is not the right advice. i don't know who has the advantage here. it's a very close race. and i think republicans are going to be well served with either mccormick or oz, who are likely going to run the same campaign in the fall, which is that joe biden is terrible and we need to push back on him by electing a republican. in some ways i'm not sure it quite matters. it matters to trump, of course, because he cares about his one loss record. the idea we would disenfranchise
6:06 pm
republican voters seems crazy to me. in this particular space, he's never been known for reasonableness. >> also in this country right now, the idea, nina, or disenfranchising voters whoo ought to have their votes counted, increasingly more common in this country. what's your reaction to having mailed in ballots that would impact a republican or a voter in general this notion of, as scott said, they would be better served with either oz or of course mccormick? what's your reaction to that? >> well, it's definitely lunacy. all votes should count. and that's what this representative democracy is about. most people are never ever going to run for office. but the one way that their voices can be and should be heard is the notion of one person, one vote. so, that is vitally important. and the fact that president trump and other republicans unfortunately pedal this nonsense about voter fraud, we know that there have been stud di dids out there to show people have a greater likelihood of
6:07 pm
interesting struck by lightning than to have voter fraud. it makes no sense. in that, scott and i might not agreen a lot, but disenfranchising people is wrong no matter who they want to vote for. >> i'm glad we have that nice foundation. bravo to both of you on that. now, let's talk about the idea of what's happening in terms of what the race would ultimately be against, say, fetterman, of course, in this race and then either the winners of the republican primary? and i wonder, from your perspective, nina in particular, you know, you've got fetterman who has said he's a democrat. and i would note back in april he told our colleagues he does not categorize himself as a progressive. he considers himself a democrat that's running on the same platform of ideas that every other democrat in this race is running on. he said, i can't think of a democrat running narnlly that's running on anything functionally different in that regard. when you hear that idea, he's
6:08 pm
often referred to and thought of as a progressive. diz his victory -- and it was a decisive one at this point. does that bode well for progressive policies and platforms? or is he trying to distance himself because he needs to be more appealing in a general election where there might not be the appetite for it? >> i mean, appealing to changing people's material conditions, that's the key. it was shakespeare who once said, what's in a name. a rose by any other name smells just as sweet. if in fact the lieutenant governor is running to change material conditions of the poor, the working poor, and the barely middle class in this country, he may not want to call himself a progressive. but standing up for those issues are vitally important to all voters, to all people, especially if you are among the people who are poor, the working poor, and the barely middle class. that is to change their lives materially. that is health care. that is making sure people can unionize. that is making sure folks have a living wanl. those things permeate, laura, as
6:09 pm
we know across party lines. so, it is vitally important that he pushes that. you know he's also been running on making it very clear that he is not joe manchin, for example. he's not kyrsten sinema. and that's a great start right there coming out the gate. >> scott, on that notion of thinking one saying tomato, one saying tomato, and the idea of what it means, does it resonate with the republican party for those coming up on the general election. i know of course trump did win back in 2016 pennsylvania but lost obviously in 2020. but the messaging in terms of what might appeal more broadly to voters, you're talking about some of the people who have run for election and right now who are deciding whether they're going to be the primary victor have run in part on these notions of the big lie. if that's the starting point of things, are we even to the point where policy considerations are going to be paramount? >> i think for republicans, whoever wins the senate race really -- i mean, i hate to make my profession sound
6:10 pm
superrudimentary and non-complicated, but joe biden is in the mid 30s in virtually all these targeted senate races. he is in really bad shape in pennsylvania. inflation is out of control. gas is forced up at a gallon. people can't find baby formula. if you can't find a way to spin this straw into gold, i mean, i don't know, and god help you. this is not a complicated issue. democrats are in control of everything. joe biden is at the top of the whole thing. and voters are really unhappy about all the stuff i just said. that's what you should focus on. and that's why i have high hopes for the senate race. i don't have high hopes for the governor's race because it doesn't seem to me like mastriano wants to focus on those issues. he wants to focus on other issues that have nothing to do with being competent or likable, which you need to be in a governor race. i feel like oz or mccormick could focus on those core things and put republicans back in the senate race, which they need to
6:11 pm
do if they want to pick it up in the fall. >> why it's so important, if you think about this, nina, and the idea of whoever's going to be the governor in this particular race, who will be in charge of overseeing elections in the state of pennsylvania, which obviously was a battleground state and continues to be so. when you think about where the party is right now, i mean, it's one thing to say, yes, you can spin the straw into gold. but one of the preventing vehicles for that has been what's happened in the senate. the administration has not been able to accomplish all that it wants to because of the road blocks in the senate. what do you say to that? >> yeah, i mean, you have republicans who are just doing what republicans do, especially on issues that help to lift people. and then you've got two democrats who are front and center, both senators manchin and sinema who are going totally opposite direction, have been major road blocks to president biden's agenda. so, it is vitally important that democrats get some senators in
6:12 pm
that particular chamber who are going to stand up and fight for the agenda that the president is pushing. that is important. and then, laura, another point to that, there are some other democrats that's probably hiding behind sinema and manchin. we must get rid of the filibuster. let's do that post-haste. and then begin to work on the issues that will lift people in this country. it is time now for either party to play games with that. we can't get voting rights passed. both parties should be in agreement -- in agreement -- that it is important to have access, unfettered access to the ballot box. the john lewis voting rights act, which many, whether they're republican or democrat, talk about the relationship that they had with the late congressman, how much they love and admire the late congressman. but yet and still it's like pulling teeth to have people who are elected, who get elected for a living, stand in the way of advancing, expanding, and protecting access to the ballot box. there should be no partisan argument about needing to ensure
6:13 pm
that people have that kind of access to the ballot box. the child tax credit, another example. >> i hear you. >> it shouldn't matter whether you're republican or democrat, laura. you want babies and children from all families across this country to be pulled out of poverty. i don't get it. >> i think the explanation depends on what people would say, the retort would be those things are not the priority to the republican party in the same way that it is the democratic party. and you point out the idea of the road blocks being two parts in part. we'll continue the conversation. thank you so much. i appreciate hearing from both of you. and now frankly to some very concerning new warnings from homeland security as we await the looming supreme court decision on abortion rights, and warnings of potential violence to come. we'll get insight from a former secret service agent. that's coming up next. it kills 99% of plaque bacteria and forms an antibacterial shield. try parodontax a active gum health mouthwash.

6:18 pm
service says it's working around the clock to provide around the clock security at the homes of supreme court justices. that warning comes after the leak of draft opinion that would overturn roe v. wade. so, how concerned should americans be in a post-january sixth insurrection world? let's get some perspective from cnn law enforcement analyst and former secret service agent jonathan wac row. jonathan, i'm glad you're here, but i have to tell you, it gives people a great deal of pause when you think about the dire warning that's been issued, the idea of storming, the idea of murder, the idea of pure violence happening. i wonder, what is your take on this memo?
6:19 pm
were you surprised to see it? >> well, listen, laura, good evening. one, no, i'm not surprised because dhs and law enforcement has learned from the past. it is very prudent right now that they are raising awareness and sharing information about potential violence surrounding any type of supreme court decision. and i just think that their focus on this highlights just how tense the conversation is nationally around abortion rights and just renewed intensity in anticipation of this decision. really you highlighted some of those security risks, and they stem predominantly from clashes that are anticipated between pro-abortion and anti-abortion rights groups. and those clashes, while of concern, there's also this worse-case scenario which is fear law enforcement is warning about around attacks from
6:20 pm
domestic violence extremist groups, who we have seen in the past have capitalized on these polarizing social issues in the past. >> it's one thing to talk about the anticipation. but anticipation is only as good as if you have the resources and the ways to prevent and deter it. do you think that they are flat-footed in their ability to do so? or will they be able to be nimble enough should this actually arise? >> laura, great question, right? we've seen law enforcement caught flat footed in the past. january 6th was a great example. >> and not from their own reason, by the way. we talk about flat-footed. not because of their own ability or lack of desire to help and provide the service. resource-wise, flat-footed. intelligence-wise, in terms of the information, flat-footed. >> no, actually, what we're seeing is actually a very robust intelligence process being put into place to look at all sides of these issues. law enforcement must consider the primary, second, and third
6:21 pm
order of consequences of any decision that's handed down by the court, right? any decision you're going to have a winner and a losing side, right? and you're going to have anxiety and tension between those two groups. law enforcement knows that and they're looking at key groups on both sides of this issue to understand who the primary actors, what type of action may exist should a decision go either way. and they're planning accordingly. the federal law enforcement, dhs, is working with local law enforcement partners around the country to get ahead of this issue. this is unprecedented. i have never seen this before where we're seeing a whole of government approach to one singular court action. and i think that, you know, it just speaks to the seriousness of this issue and how we need to move forward to prepare. >> and when we do see the idea maybe on a whole of government apr approach, when you've got individual jurisdictions.
6:22 pm
you've had complaints across the country about shutting down in areas and what that would mean, the reading of the tea leaves. here do you think there's going to be a coordination for the supreme court of the united states to suggest hey, this is going to be coming on this particular day to take and plan accordingly? or will it have to be as responsive as when the media learns about it, when the american people learn about whatever final ruling there will be? >> listen, there's three parts to this. it's preparation, response, and recovery. that's what law enforcement is thinking about. it would be great if they got a heads up that there was some decision coming so that they can basically put out the right resources at the right syme. however, the fact that we are sitting here tonight talking about this, raising awareness, and law enforcement agencies are not only working with each other, but they're also working with a private sector, corporations and businesses, both large and small around the country to help them prepare for the potential impact of this decision. so, the preparation of the left
6:23 pm
of boone planning is key in bringing the agility you just talked about, bringing the structure into place so we can work together and maintain civil order as best as possible. >> jonathan, you know, the elephant in the room is the fact that, you know, we are talking about this in anticipation of a potential violent response. and we know we are a country that honors and values the first amendment. but the idea of the expectation of free speech and reaction and assembly turning violent is something that i think we can't get used to in this society. i know you know that quite well. and we'll see what comes of it. you know, the government is not warning people to avoid going to the supermarket or to church. but deadly racism like the massacre in buffalo is cause for fear. and it isn't exactly a one-off. michael air dyson joins me. i want to know does he see a

6:27 pm
in the wake of the buffalo mass shooting, america once again finds itself engaged in conversations about racism and
6:28 pm
white supremacy, in particular in this case, the white replacement conspiracy theory. it's the latest in a string of hate motivated massacres including el paso, pittsburgh, and charleston. the question is, why does this keep happening? and are we having the right conversations about hate to stop it? professor at vanderbilt university, and author of "equal: a story of america," michael eric dyson joins me now. michael, i'm so glad you're here to talk about this and give the perspective. but this is a conversation that is infuriating by how cyclical it really is, the idea of the evergreen nature of the conversation about the replacement theory. it has its place in history but also in the present. walk us through a little bit about what this says about the state of race in america. >> laura, it's always great to be on with you. yeah, this is not anything new. in fact, what's interesting is
6:29 pm
that the white replacement theory comports effortlessly with confederate theories of white supremacy and white superiority with post-reconstruction denial of opportunity to black people with violent reprisals against black people from the unabashed merit to have progress. the fact that you think they can vote. they were going to schools and burning them down. they were going to polling places and threatening black people. this was 100 and some odd years ago, and it continues today. as odd and as exceptional as the white replacement theory looks, there's a newfangled twist here, the expression that we are fearful of genetically disappearing. in 20-some-odd years, white people will no longer be the statistical majority in this country. and when you tie it all together, white replacement theory, anti-crt argument, the insistence that abortion be banned and that white babies in
6:30 pm
particular be born, this is all of a larger piece. and that larger piece is the fear of whiteness disappearing in the face of a worldwide global expansion of people of color. and right here in this nation, we will not be replaced by jews, by blacks, by latinos, and others. that's part of the tragedy that has to constantly be dealt with and seen as a throughline from white supremacy beginning before 1619 on down to today. >> you know, the way you talk about it under that discussion is often talked about the browning of america. there's conversations around the census data and who to include, who's entitled to be thought of as an american. even recently you had members of congress audacity of the government to provide formula to undocumented newborns and give it to rightful american babies. the whole throughline is there. but what often follows this
6:31 pm
conversation is this is not who we are. this is not america. the president of the united states as a candidate saying i'm running to fight for the soul of this nation. but is there a fallacy in the idea that this isn't who we are? >> there is a tremendous salacious assumption that this is not who we are. one president fighting for the soul of america, another president fighting solely for white america more broadly. we saw this in 45 under his presidency. we saw the resurgence of white supremacist thinking, of the unashamed expression, of the embrace of white supremacy, autocracy, neofascism comes along. the greatest predictor for fascism in america is white supremacy. what is it when black people are written out of their history and narrative? this angst about crt, we know this has really blown up. two years ago people didn't even know what crt. we're looking at the wrong rt,
6:32 pm
crt, critical race theory, versus wrt, white replacement theory. and in this country, deeply entrenched in the bowels of this nation is the belief that whiteness is rightness. so, the american constitution, the declaration of independence, the bill of rights, the federalist papers, even though they are not explicitly in many cases expressing this white supremacy, they are built upon it. we see the long historical trajectory of antiblackness, of anything that doesn't represent whiteness in this pristine, piriform. so, yeah, we've got to talk about the ways in which mitch mcconnell and kevin mccarthy and scalise and others represent a spectrum and continuum of beliefs that are hospitable to and incubating of the kind of deep and profound explicit violence we see manifest. i'm not saying they're the same
6:33 pm
thing. i'm saying they are on a continuum where they begin to tolerate the forms of bigotry and hatred. mitch mcconnell said black people vote like americans do, not other americans. already there's an othering, a distancing from black people as humane agents of our destiny, as citizens in this country. it's all of a piece, and it's very ugly for america to confront it. we'd rather think oh it's a bunch of guys in white sheets or nice haircuts who are talking about, we will not be replaced, we will not be removed. no, it is deeply entrenched in the bowels of america. >> how do we go from this being perhaps who we are to who we ought to be. it's one thing to have the esoteric conversations we need to have to understand the lay of the land, the history of the context, but how do you go from that to where we shall be and not -- some would look at this and say you're offending the
6:34 pm
first amendment. just because i don't happen to abide by your principle doesn't mean i don't have any right to say it and you've got to legislate against me. how do you bridge that gap? >> well, look, the great historian steve morse, better known as stevie wonder, said the first man to die. don't be trying to lecture black people about loyalty to this nation. we were loyal to this nation when this nation refused to feed us, treated us like chattal slavery, otherized us, and we stood tall. america has been at its best when its ideals have been articulated but lived out within the freshly concrete context of african american struggle. only when black and brown and red and yellow and peoples of color come along to embody the ideals that america put forth brilliantly but contradicted
6:35 pm
paradoxically. thomas jefferson writing about the declaration of independence but then owning human beings. so, when black and brown and others come along, it is our -- the night before he died said america, all we ask is be true to what you said on paper. that's what it will take. >> michael eric dyson, the only person who can talk about stevie wonder, thomas jefferson and make we want to solve the next wordle clue. i appreciate you always. i'm so glad to have you on the show. and i loved your book. thank you so much. >> thank you so kindly. look, the former officer who held down george floyd's legs in his final nine moments, he pleaded guilty today to second degree manslaughter. if you forgot the specifics in the two years since george floyd was killed, lane was only days into his job. and he's the one, recall, who asked derek chauvin if floyd should be moved out of that prone position. but he never actually did get off the man, as he lay in the street dying.
6:36 pm
the state's attorney general says this plea is proof lane, quote, accepted his responsibility for his role in floyd's death. the defense attorney says this is a chance for a two-year sentence versus a possible mandatory 12 if convicted. you can decide for yourself if this plea is a step towards greater justice. we'll turn next to the nation's formula shortage, so bad now that some children need to be hospitalized. the doctor who leads the key committee at the american academy of pediatrics is seeing the extremes of this emergency and will share it with us. we'll look at the newest guidance for parents with "cnn tonight" returns.

6:41 pm
all now-consuming reality, the panic time for baby formula. >> when i get to work in the morning, i look for formula. when we're sitting on the couch for an hour at night, we're looking for formula. >> the worse case is becoming a reality. in memphis, a lack of formula put two children in the hospital. the chair of the american academy of pediatrics, please tell us how are the children doing? >> they're doing very well. actually one of them did -- was able to go home. one is still there and we're hoping to be able to send him home soon. >> you know, when we hear about this, this is the fear of parents, if there is not the ability to provide sustenance and nutrition, you're not going to be able to maintain a thriving child very long. you treated two patients.
6:42 pm
it's hard to imagine that you won't expect more. >> it is. it's a worry that with this shortage that until there's more production that we're going to continue to have needs until the factory that was shut down is back up and operating, there's not as much production from all the different companies that make formula to make up the difference. >> so, what are you telling parents? i can only imagine what that conversation was like and the fear of a parent bringing their child knowing that they cannot feed their baby. they cannot provide. and they're looking for alternatives. i know as a mom we were really only trained. certain stages you introduced certain types of food. there's a discussion about whole milk now possibly. is that changing in terms of being able to use that for children? i was always told, no, that's not what you use. >> no, it's not what you use, not before you're of age,
6:43 pm
especially not before six months of age. six months -- the first six months, literally, you're totally dependent on either breast milk or formula for your intake. it's got to supply all of the nutrients. now, when you have some solids in your diet, a little bit of -- for instance, if you can't find formula for a day or two, whole milk is probably -- it's a stop gap measure. it's far from ideal. it's really not recommended until you're a year of age. >> a stop gap measure, the idea of it's either feed my child nothing or potentially this stop gap measure. is it a concern health-wise? what are you telling parents in terms of what they're supposed to do when you're treating them? >> well, yeah, there's also -- there's some next step toddler tom formulas, for instance. those are not as complete. they're not designed for infants. but as a stop gap measure while you're looking for formula, a

day or two of those is something you can use. there are groups and people who have created ways to find formulas. there are formulas available but you have to look pretty hard to find them. >> and of course have the means to do so, which is an overarching concern for so many reasons for good reason. if there were to go on for a longer period of time -- we know with even the defense production act and the idea of reopening a factory, that these may still be prolonged solutions that will take a long time, how long can this go on and not jeopardize the health of these children? >> well, that's a good question. how long -- how much supply do we have left? i don't know that anybody really knows the answer to how much is left. the fda has made some moves. they're actually working to approve some formulas from overseas to help bridge the gap and bring in some supplies that we don't normally see in the
6:45 pm
u.s. those formulas, of course, they have to make sure they're complete and they're safe. and that's under their legal purview to make sure that the formulas or safe. >> and we highly regulate that for that reason, the nutritional value. thank you for what you're doing. i know one child went home. i hope the other one is able to as well and it doesn't become a revolving door of other children in need of help. thank you so much. >> you're welcome. well, there's a lot going on for a variety of reasons. so, perhaps it's no wonder that the first congressional hearing -- there it is -- on maybe ufos in half a century, has only been, well, a blip on the news radar. but we're about to dive into those truly extraordinary few hours examining the possibility of extraterrestrial life here on earth. so, what does our guest make of it? he's going to take apart some of those videos of ufo sightings shown there. and if they aren't some kind of

unidentified aerial phenomena are a potential national security threat, and they need to be treated that way. for too pilots avoided reporting or were laughed at when they did. today, we know better. uaps are unexplained. it's true, but they are real. >> i can't lie, i'm into this. those kicked off the congressional hearing on ufos. top pentagon officials testified under oath about wa they know about those unidentified aerial ph phenomenon or uaps. a video of flashing triangle shapes as seen through night vision goggles.
6:51 pm
for several yearsu unresolved until now. >> you know who else had a similar explanation that was grounded in facts months before pentagon officials went on the record. nick west. science write rr and ufo investigators who joans ins me . they were trying to offer certain explanations today at the hearing. there was some we're still puzzled by. can we walk through the video to get an idea. i want to know what you see when you see the videos. begin with thetriangles, flashi green through the sky.
6:52 pm
>> they spent several years looking at the video frying to figure out what it was. we see triangles moving through the sky. one triangle in particular that is flashing and the first thing you noted is flashing about the same rate as a commercial airliner. i figured that might be the explanation. i looked into the technology that's being used, the cameras being used, it's a night vision by binocular. you can see it's a triangle shape. if you view something like a small light through a lens that has a triangular aperture then it will look triangular shape.
6:53 pm
i'm a little bamboozled as they were weren't to figure this out for about two years. this video shows an object flying by this frame. >> that's an even lower information vitd owe. this video, you can't see from the one they showed in the hearings. it's out of focus.
6:54 pm
it's probably moving very slow. he also said it was reflective. we can see that from the white highlight on it. the most likely explanation is it's a balloon that the plane is flying by. it's not moving itself. it's not actually anything particularly interesting. it's bit of airborne clutter. i wonder what the hearing really is here. what is the real point of having this and particularly now. those not the only things they looked at. there could be classified kpo components of any hearing. can you explain what is the reason for the hearings now. has there been a culmination of
6:55 pm
this. people are trying to understand the phenomenon that's not just an anomaly. >> there's always been ufos since we had people fly and those have always been with us and always interesting. we want to figure out what they are. more recently, we had new technology like drones which present new challenges in identify things in our air space. this is something that is a real issue. it's a significant issue and could be problems attacking using drones. we really need to be able to identify drones so it's real thing they need to look into. this is all being conflated by people who are lobbying because they believe in aliens. they believe there's a non-human intelligence flying around in the sky and they think the government needs to tell us about it.
