John Warner IV Discusses the State of UFO Disclosure
Over the past several years, the disclosure movement has taken some interesting turns as videos of UFOs (or UAPs) tracked by the Navy have been made public. With esteemed media outlets reporting on the matter, and credible Navy pilots coming forward to describe their experiences, motley groups of researchers, celebrities, and government insiders have banded together to steer the narrative.
Within that group is Christopher Mellon, the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence in the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations, who also happens to be a member of one of the most highly influential families of bankers and politicians in American history.
Mellon first announced his role in the recent alleged disclosure movement through his involvement with To The Stars Academy, a bizarre amalgam of scientists, intelligence officials, and former Skunk Works engineers led by eccentric rockstar Tom Delonge.
While Mellon’s rhetoric around the UFO/UAP topic has been relatively conservative and pretty much what one would expect from a former intelligence bureaucrat, his cousin John Warner IV has recently begun to discuss his views on the subject from a more radical perspective.
Warner IV is the son of former Sen. John Warner III who served as Secretary of the Navy from 1972 to 1974 in the Nixon administration. During his storied career in military and politics, Warner III married Catherine Mellon, before divorcing and starting a second marriage with the immensely famous Elizabeth Taylor.
Needless to say, Warner IV was privy to a stimulating upbringing, rubbing elbows with famous movie stars, top military brass, royal families, and banking moguls, including his grandfather Paul Mellon who was a fox hunting buddy of the legendary Gen. George Patton. In fact, this is one of the relationships in which Warner IV says he was given his first drips of disclosure about UFOs.
According to Warner IV his grandfather was cold and distant from his mother, but the two shared a male bond that led to some interesting conversations, especially regarding his time in Eastern Europe in the late 1940s.
“He said, ‘I was with Patton at the end of the war in Czechoslovakia… I was with Patton in Pilsen and we went into a warehouse and looked at all the Wunderwaffe stuff. You know rocket works, V2, maybe some V3 parts, the Flugelrad with the jet engines and all this stuff. And you know I saw this big disc aircraft,’” Warner IV said his grandfather told him.
“And I said, ‘Oh, is that the Flugelrad with the BMW jet engines?’ and he was like, ‘No…no’ and that was the end of the conversation,” Warner IV said.
On another occasion, while speaking to his father about the Navy’s operations in Antarctica, Warner IV says he received some cryptic, off-the-cuff remarks that would set off a lightbulb in his head years later. His father’s involvement in Operation Deep Freeze, (an ongoing naval operation initiated in the early 1950s by Admiral Richard E. Byrd that set off ufological rumors around Antarctica ) which led him to question why the US military had such intense interest in the frozen climate at the bottom of the planet. Hearing that the US, as well as several other countries, were constructing bases and missile silos as part of the global hegemonic struggle was not surprising, but when he asked why that was occurring on such a desolate part of the globe, his father simply pointed to the sky and said “space operations.”
It wasn’t until later in his life that Warner IV began to piece together the many uncanny conversations he had with his father, grandfather, and countless high-profile figures, regarding disclosure and the UFO phenomenon. And it wasn’t until he began reading about foo fighters, Nazi UFOs, and the German interest in the occult during WWII — not to mention the Nazi’s attempt at establishing their own base on Antarctica in Neuschwabenland — that things really began to click.
Today, as we find ourselves at a time when the UFO subject has never been more openly discussed in the mainstream, Warner IV is opening up about his experiences and how they relate to the current state of affairs. And it couldn’t be more welcomed as he is one degree of separation from many important actors in the conversation, most notably his cousin Chris Mellon.

New Legislation Could Open Floodgates of Government UFO Reports
The US government just made it easier to report UFOs, possibly releasing people from non-disclosure agreements. Will this open the floodgates of information?
As part of the annual defense spending bill, within the National Defense Authorization Act for 2023, the House just approved an amendment that would make it easier for current or former members of the military, government-employed civilians, and contractors to report UFOs or UAPs as the government now calls them.
The measure was sponsored by Reps. Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin and Ruben Gallego of Arizona, who have been among those in Congress calling for more transparency into UFOs.
The amendment would create a secure system for reporting any UFO phenomena and protect those who come forward from any repercussions.
Gallagher told Politico, “I believe it’s possible that folks may be precluded from being fully transparent with congress due to their being bound by non-disclosure agreements… if that’s true, I want to make sure that there’s no technical reason preventing them from speaking to us.”
