It seems aliens have the potential to be a pivotal topic in the race to the White House. Mind you, not the illegal kind who cross the Southern border pursuing the mirage of the American dream –which Donald Trump and most of the GOP contenders have been sadly exploiting to fuel the fires of Fascism in America. I’m talking about the ones which enflame the passions of OUR little tin-foiled demographic.
On a recent interview, Daymond Steer of The Conway Daily Sun reminded the presidential hopeful of a previous conversation they had back in 2007 (when she was still a member of the US Senate) in which Steer brought the subject of UFOs –which automatically makes him my favorite person in all of New Hampshire, BTW– to which Mrs. Clinton replied with a smile and a uncharacteristically willingness to discuss a subject which still remains Taboo in political circles —Kucinich anyone?
“Yes, I’m going to get to the bottom of it,” said Clinton with enthusiasm.
She also commented on her husband’s appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel’s show last year, in which he talked about his efforts to learn about what happened in Roswell, and pry inside the secrets held at the infamous Area 51, by adding “I think we may have been (visited already). We don’t know for sure.”
That’s an interesting response in itself, because it may hint at how even the spouse of the former “most powerful man in the world” –and someone who aspires to win that high office for herself– may have not managed to get to the bottom of the UFO rabbit hole, and answer with certainty the question ‘have we been contacted, Yes or No?’… OR it could even be that those inside the government who have looked into this darkest of abysses, are still scratching their heads at the mind-boggling complexity of the UFO enigma; a phenomenon that doesn’t really seem to conform to the simplistic explanations spawned during the early years of the Space Age.
…Then again, who really knows WHAT was discussed between she and the late Laurance Rockefeller during those long, private chats at his JY Ranch near Jackson’s Hole, Wyoming. It was then that Rockefeller gave Clinton a copy of Paul Davies’ Are We Alone? Philosophical Implications of the Discovery of Extraterrestrial Life –Memo to the UFO community: Notice how Rockefeller chose NOT to give her a book written by ANY of you??
But if there’s someone who seems to beat the Clintons in his enthusiasm about UFOs, that is John Podesta: The former chief of staff during president Bill Clinton’s administration, highest-profiled X-Files fan, who is now overseeing his wife’s campaign– and who caused quite a stir with that little Tweet he tweeted last year:
“He has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out,” said Clinton. “One way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51.”
Well, promising has never hurt a politician’s career, right? Especially during election year –and frankly, sending a task force to storm Area 51 seems less laughable to me, than forcing Mexico to pay for the expenses of a border wall…
Still, I must say I find this move by Clinton both bold and refreshing. Her Democratic ticket is by no means secure IMO, with all the thunder Bernie Sanders has stolen from her campaign among the younger demographics –the fact that the Establishment both on the left and right side of the spectrum is so antagonistic towards him is quite telling– and thus bringing up the UFO wildcard is a daring, unexpected move. Ever since I started to pay attention to Grant Cameron’s research into the US presidents’ involvement with the UFO question, I was eager to see if the subject would be brought up during the 2016 campaign.
Now it seems that it might, no matter how much the mainstream media will seek to either ignore it, or belittle its significance.
So kudos to Daymond Steer for making this election a whole less depressing that what it threatened to be, and for *hopefully* helping make the UFO subject become something more than a late-night show punchline –although I’m sure my thanks will not be as enthusiastic as those of Roland Emmerich’s…
