Am I the only one now hearing the iconic opening music of the series in my head? :-) --Kynde (talk) 13:41, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

I wasn't until you mentioned it :-( 13:57, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

May be related to this news released yesterday:[1] Seebert (talk) 14:41, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Yep, slow news day.OhFFS (talk) 15:19, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

The title text is probably a reference to US government restrictions placed on their departments (such as NOAA), preventing them from releasing details which might support the idea of climate change. JamesCurran (talk) 18:27, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Most likely this or the more recent budgetary cuts and reallocations that have forced closure of some programs. Kinda surprised it wasn't noted on the main page actually 20:39, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Of course the shadowy forces that control the world want to believe ... or at least want YOU to believe in UFO. The idea is simple: 1) make you believe in UFO 2) blame UFO for problems they caused. -- Hkmaly (talk) 02:46, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

How does the title text makes it "clear" in any way that this is a reference to Trump policy? 07:29, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

Clear only after reading it :-) (And even then it would make no sense for the Trump administration to suppress facts. Since when do facts still play a role in today's politics? ;-)
Of course it is clear, especially knowing about Randall's political inclination, and I am pretty disappointed to see these parts of the explanation removed, however I don't want to be part of the edit war myself. -- 12:05, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
I would add that if someone thinks it's not about Trump policy, then at least replace it with something else. As it stands right now, there's no mention of the title text at all! Ianrbibtitlht (talk) 12:16, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
Right; it is totally not about Trump's policy, but about... ah, I dunno, let's just omit it. -.- -- 12:58, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
Ah whatever, edit war, here I come. :D -- 13:07, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
