IS THIS MAN AN ALIEN?! No. This is John Podesta, Hilary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign manager. He recently hopped on the Twitter box to announce a big truth bomb is about to drop regarding aliens and UFO and the former frontman of Blink-182: "Stay tuned for big announcement tomorrow #TheTruthIsOutThere." What ever did he mean?!
He was referring to a trove of "information" disclosed by Tom Delonge on extraterrestrials. Delonge, apparently, has been working with other government officials on alien stuff. Podesta has a long history of claiming the U.S. Government knows more than it lets on about aliens. Back in 2002, Podesta was ranting and a raving about some documents that NASA apparently had embargoed regarding a 1965 UFO incident in Pennsylvania. When he was counselor to Obama, he regretted not having unlocked those docs to the people.
Edgar Mitchell was the sixth man to walk on the moon. He was an exceptional astronaut with an unconventional mind. One experiment he underwent may even have proven him a psychic. After returning to Earth, Mitchell condemned NASA and governments the world over for covering up UFO incidents.
In fact, Mitchell grew up in a town near Roswell, New Mexico, and was a teenager in 1947 when the famous UFO crash landing occurred. He spoke with local government officials who agreed something fishy was going on, but had no hard evidence to prove it. After stringing together other UFO sightings near military bases, Mitchell concluded that the aliens were trying to warn us against self-destruction by WMDs.
One-time presidential candidate and U.S. representative Dennis Kucinich officially saw.... A. UFO! And he decided to bring it up...in the 2007 DNC debate. He was clarifying, and verifying what actress Shirley MacLaine wrote in her book, that the candidate had seen the object in her backyard.
MacLaine's description continued. Not only did Kucinich see something in the sky, but he, she claims, said that he "felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind.” Kucinich skirted that part of the recounting, and instead came back with a real whopper: that there were "more people in this country have seen UFOs than I think approve of George Bush's presidency.” Looks like the aliens taught him a thing or two.
Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, former president of the Russian Republic of Kalmykia and president of the World Chess Organization, claims he was abducted by aliens. He says they were very similar to people, which, who knows, was probably part of their grand plan. After making the claim, another official pointed out that the aliens may have been able to steal state secrets.
But wait. It gets weirder. Ilyumzhinov also claims that chess was brought to Earth by aliens, and that if not enough people play, the aliens will grow angry and destroy the planet out of spite. This could be why, when he was president of Kalmykia, he made chess mandatory for all schoolchildren. The dude is whacked.
Canada's Former Defense Secretary Paul Hellyer has been caught on and off record blabbing about aliens. He was discussing the very real existence of not just one species of alien visitors, but four. They've been coming to Earth every now and then to check up on the place for thousands of years.
But that wasn't just some off-the-cuff, out of the blue remark. Hellyer has been advocating for transparency regarding alien visitation for years. He's been doing this for forty years. He claimed in '05 that he saw a UFO with his family. The thing about Hellyer is that he's not, at least on paper, a crackpot. He's an educated, rational, credentialed person. Makes ya think.
In 2013, Paradigm Research Group impaneled a group of government officials to discuss and weigh in on the matter of aliens. One of those who partook was former Republic representative of Maryland Roscoe G. Bartlett. He went on record saying, "I’ve been exploring how we might get this issue out of the shadows of the lunatic fringe.” He also voiced his concerns that an electromagnetic pulse from outer space could wreak havoc on our nuclear arsenal.
Astronaut Gordon Cooper logged 222 hours in space, and has an astounding resume. But perhaps the most astounding thing he did was be outspoken when it came to aliens and UFOs and government secrecy. This transcription of an interview with the man is too good to paraphrase:
“For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public. Why? Because authority is afraid that people may think of God knows what kind of horrible invaders. So the password still is: We have to avoid panic by all means.”
John Callahan was the former head of the Federal Aviation Administration’s Accidents, Evaluations and Investigations Division in the '80s. He's most famous for opining on the Japanese Airlines 747 plane incident in which the captain of that craft reported three UFOs keeping pace with the plane. Callahan claims he was contacted by the CIA to discuss the matter. Callahan relayed the information. Supposedly the CIA man told Callahan, "This event never happened. We were never here. We’re confiscating all this data and you’re all sworn to secrecy." Snap!
US Army General Stephen Lovekin was interviewed about getting privy to some top-secret docs. He talks about going one afternoon to the Pentagon and getting exposed to Project Blue Book. He recounts being shown a metallic piece with inscriptions on it that served as instructions. The military found the object of such importance that they dedicated lots of time and manpower to it.
Former CIA Director Admiral R. H. Hillnkoetter grew frustrated over the secrecy surrounding UFO sighting documents. He is recorded to have said, "Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. “But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.”
What does it all mean?! Why are they so worried if there's nothing there? And if there's nothing there, why aren't we freaking out more?
