Pretty bold presidential campaign strategy by Hillary Clinton here, just saying that she’ll “get to the bottom” of these Area 51/Aliens/UFO conspiracy theories that have been prominent beyond the sci-fi community since rumors of an alien crash landing in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. I mean, who doesn’t want to know if aliens exist or not!?
Hollywood has had tremendous success with alien flicks over the years, and now it seems as if the Democratic nominee-hopeful and former first lady wants to let the people know if the cinema scriptwriters are on to something or not. Could something like E.T., or God forbid, Independence Day really happen?
In a recent visit to the Conway Daily Sun editorial office, the former Senator and Secretary of State opened up about her thoughts on alien-lore and her aims to uncover the truth behind UFOs should she be elected the 45th President of the United States of America.
At the end [of the meeting], she chatted with this reporter, who had asked her about UFOs the last time she visited. She recalled that 2007 exchange with a smile and seemed to have fun discussing the topic.
“Yes, I’m going to get to the bottom of it,” said Clinton with enthusiasm.
Back in 2007, Clinton had said that the No. 1 topic of freedom-of-information requests that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, received at his library was UFOs.
Last year, Bill Clinton told late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel that he wouldn’t be surprised if Earth is visited by aliens since so many planets out there may support life.
“I just hope it’s not like ‘Independence Day,'” said Clinton, referring to a movie about alien invaders.
When asked about her husband’s nonchalant comment about contact with the third kind, Hillary Clinton responded: “I think we may have been (visited already). We don’t know for sure.”
So you’re saying there’s a chance, Hillary? There’s a chance that aliens already visited Earth? Whoa. But seriously, if you look at practically any deep sea creature, that almost seems like a given, right? I mean, where else would the absurd life that lives down there come from? A meteor, that’s where.
As far as UFOs and the shrouded secrecy that is Area 51, well, Hillary Clinton also stated a task force to look into the matter wouldn’t be ruled out. While many skeptics believe Area 51 may actually house alien lifeforms and possible UFO wreckage from Roswell, Hillary’s husband also told Jimmy Kimmel that it was actually a government research facility for military stealth technology.
[Hillary] Clinton also said she would like to look into Area 51, a secret military base in Nevada that has long been rumored to contain aliens. At first, she called it Area 54 and then corrected herself.
But Bill Clinton told Kimmel that he had already looked into Area 51. He said everyone who works there has to stop about an hour away to put on special clothing. Clinton said Area 51 is where stealth technology is made.
“There are no aliens there,” said Bill Clinton, adding at the anniversary of the supposed Roswell, N.M., crash in 1947, he released all the documents he could on the subject because he knew there would be popular demand.
Kimmell had Bill Clinton promise that he would have announced the existence of aliens if he had found them.
Hillary Clinton, while at the Sun, added that the chairman of her campaign, John Podesta, is a huge fan of UFO lore. She said he enjoys a sci-fi show on the FX network. Podesta served as chief of staff to Bill Clinton and counselor to the president for Barack Obama.
“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.”
So, do aliens exist? I’m saying yeah, but I guess we’d have to elect Hillary Clinton to find out. Pretty tough bargain. But if we did and the are, in fact, out there, would Donald Trump be quick to declare an interstellar war? Probably … Definitely.
