Ex-Lincoln Project employees demand release from NDAs to discuss co-founder’s behavior
Six former employees at the anti-Trump Republican group the Lincoln Project went after its leaders Thursday night, demanding to be released from their nondisclosure agreements (NDAs) so they can talk openly about John Weaver, a now-departed co-founder who has been accused of sexually harassing young men.
The organization, amid receiving massive criticism for the allegations against Weaver, announced Thursday night that it would be hiring an outside investigator to review his tenure at the Lincoln Project.
Leaders of the Lincoln Project say that they were unaware of Weaver’s conduct until recent reports detailed these allegations.

In an open letter published by The New York Times, the six unnamed former employees and associates asked that their NDAs be waved, saying that they wanted to be allowed to disclose information “that would aid the press, public and our donors in answering questions relevant to the public interest.”
“Tonight, in light of recent events, news reports and statements from the Lincoln Project, we call on the remaining leadership of the Lincoln Project to release us all and all others from all Non-Disclosure Agreements (or other contracts), without precondition, regarding (a) harassment perpetuated by John Weaver that we have experienced or witnessed (b) knowledge of harassment of others by John Weaver (c) any other information specific to the John Weaver situation that would aid the press, public and our donors in questions relevant to the public interest, and to the interests of the Lincoln Project’s many loyal fans and small donors,” the letter reads.
“Recently published stories about the Lincoln Project are filled with inaccuracies, incorrect information, and reliant exclusively on anonymous sources,” the Lincoln Project said in a statement posted to Twitter on Thursday night. “However, there is a central truth in all of them that must be reckoned with and that is John Weaver’s appalling conduct and the abuse he inflicted on people.”
Thus, the organization announced, that it would be retaining a “best-in-class outside professional to review Mr. Weaver’s tenure with the organization and to establish both accountability and best practices going forward for the Lincoln Project.”
At the end of its statement, the Lincoln Project emphasized that “any person who believes they are unable to talk about John Weaver publicly because they are bound by an NDA, should contact the Lincoln Project for a release.”

Las Vegas Backyard UFO Encounter and Its Connection to Historic UFO Incidents
In a Las Vegas suburb, a family’s experience has put them into the realm of the unexplained. What started as a crashed object in their backyard and sightings of “non-human” beings has now unveiled a captivating connection to two historic UFO incidents—Trinity and Rendlesham Forest.
It was a late April night when the people of Las Vegas witnessed something extraordinary. Multiple witnesses, including law enforcement officers, observed a streak across the sky. Body cam footage from one of the responding police officers displays the spectacle. As reports flooded in from across eastern California, Nevada, and Utah, the American Meteor Society took note, hinting at a spectacle that defied easy explanation.

Responding to the call, two police officers were dispatched to investigate the strange occurrence. The body camera footage obtained from both officers captured their initial reactions, reflecting a mix of nerves and intrigue.
Conversations between officers and witnesses revealed astonishing claims, with one witness describing a “big creature” standing around 10 feet tall.
While one officer proceeded to inspect the backyard, the video footage from his body camera was redacted by Metro police due to privacy concerns, according to reports. Witnesses conveyed their belief in the sighting, despite expressing skepticism before. Simultaneously, another witness informed the police about an SUV circling the area, potentially adding another layer of mystery to the incident, according to reports.
But this was just the beginning.
As the incident unfolded, an web of connections emerged, drawing parallels to historical UFO encounters that have perplexed and fascinated humanity for decades. Among these, the Trinity Incident stands as a testament to the enduring mystery surrounding UFO phenomena.
The Trinity Incident, which transpired in, July 1945, was set against the backdrop of the world’s first atomic bomb test in New Mexico. Witnesses, present during the event, reported a peculiar sighting, a UFO defying the laws of physics, hovering near the blast. The incident became covered in secrecy due to its connection to the classified Manhattan Project. This led to the rise of speculation about extraterrestrial involvement and their interest in our technological advancements.
Fast forward to December 1980, when another chapter in UFO history was written, Rendlesham Forest, an event that unfolded near the RAF Woodbridge base in Suffolk, England. Military personnel stationed there encountered inexplicable lights and an otherworldly craft nestled amidst the forest. The Rendlesham Forest incident remains one of the most compelling UFO cases on record, captivating the world with its documented evidence, eyewitness testimonies, and subsequent investigations.
Now, as the Las Vegas incident captures global attention, trending on Twitter, its connection to these historical encounters become apparent. The connections are astonishing, a crashed object, sightings of strange beings upwards of 10 feet tall, and eyewitnesses who stand by their claims, just as those who witnessed the Trinity Incident and the events in Rendlesham Forest did.
What does this all mean?
In this connection of past and present, the Las Vegas backyard encounter serves as a gateway into the world of UFOs. It calls the worlds to explore the uncharted territories of the unknown, where the boundaries of our understanding are challenged.
As speculation continues to surround this perplexing event, the encounters with unidentified phenomena and the mention of “big creatures” with large gazing eyes, in a suburban backyard have left the community and investigators perplexed. The quest for answers in this unusual case remains ongoing, as locals ponder the possibility of an otherworldly presence.
