Democratic operative John Podesta has created some major media waves this week. He is best known as the quintessential inside-the-beltway Washington insider. He was Bill Clinton’s last chief of staff and presided over the infamous Clinton pardons. He later founded the very liberal Center for American Progress in Washington. And for the last year, he has served in the Obama Administration as an advisor to the President focused on the issuance of executive orders. He’s definitely not on this conservative’s Christmas card list.
Podesta’s involvement with the Obama Administration came to an end last Friday when he moved on to presumably work with the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign for president. Just before leaving, Podesta issued a series of statements on social media listing his accomplishments and failures as an Obama advisor in 2014.
The last of Podesta’s tweets was extremely strange and unexpected. He stated that his biggest failure of 2014 was not obtaining the disclosure of “the UFO files”. He didn’t say he couldn’t find out IF there were files. He stated that there ARE files and he couldn’t get them released to the public.
If Podesta is right, then despite the many, many documents the government has released over the last several decades, there are more that are being held secret and he could not pry them loose from whoever controls them. This gives credence to the idea that at least some of the thousands of sightings that have been reported are not just swamp gas or the planet Venus.
Turns out that Podesta has a bit of a history in asking for UFO information disclosure. In 2002 at a Coalition for Freedom of Information press conference, he called for the release of the truth about UFO’s saying “…because the American people can handle the truth. And we ought to do it because it’s the law.”
Podesta’s interest in the UFO topic seems to have germinated during his tenure with the Clinton administration. At that time, the billionaire philanthropist, Laurance Rockefeller, personally lobbied the president (and possibly the first lady) for the release of all government files on the topic. Bill Clinton admits that he did look into this but was never able to find anything.
Later during Clinton’s presidency, Podesta was instrumental in developing and implementing Executive Order 12958 that was an effort to declassify millions of pages of U.S. national security documents. Possibly some of these dealt with UFO’s.
So where does this leave us? Clearly, John Podesta thinks there is highly strategic information about the UFO phenomenon that the government has and is not releasing to the public. It’s not clear if he knows what it is or if he just knows there is something being hidden from the public.
So why would he send out this strange tweet? He hasn’t retracted it or mentioned anything further. He just floated it out there for public consumption.
I believe that as with all things in Washington, politics is behind Podesta’s disclosure on disclosure.
If indeed extra-terrestrial (ET) beings are visiting this planet, confirmation of this would constitute the biggest event in world history. Its impact would be monumental on all aspects of the global community. It would greatly expand our perspective on our place in the universe. It could provide access to new technologies that would dramatically enhance all of human existence.
Therefore, whoever was able to break through the veil of secrecy to bring the truth to the masses would be forever associated with the greatest event in human history. What politician could resist that?
It’s hard to believe that it would be Obama who would be standing in the way of disclosure of ET evidence. There’s never been a more narcissistic, political animal in the White House. The opportunity to add ET disclosure to being the first black president would be something he couldn’t resist.
Podesta could be trying to leverage some unseen Pentagon bureaucracy by going to the public to build pressure for disclosure. The UFO community is on fire with this and is aggressively lobbying all levels of the federal government for disclosure. And the pressure for disclosure is not just on the U.S. government. Many countries are being pressured to come clean with what they know.
So in effect, we could have a kind of international disclosure race. Which world leader will be the first to disclose the truth about ET’s? If indeed there were truth to be disclosed, would the U.S. want Putin to grab the disclosure glory? How about Merkel of Germany? Netanyahu? That would be a disaster.
No, the way things are in Washington these days, I believe that our government would make sure that any truth of ET existence would come from the U.S. first.
So if there really is ET truth to be revealed, I believe it would have to be disclosed soon.
However, if we are where we are ten years from now with no confirmation of ET presence, then I would just say fugetaboutit!
