In his new journal entry, Whitley Strieber discusses the recent US presidential election in light of what he has learned from the visitors about their aims, and the ways in which president-elect Trump’s stated positions conflict with those aims, and the ways that they further them. In some respects, it would appear that a Donald Trump administration would stand against the two key aims of the visitors, which are the preservation of a healthy environment and the furtherance of human freedom. But is that really true?

Whitley points out, for example, that in December of 2009 Donald Trump and two of his children were among the signatories to a letter that was placed in the New York Times by a large group of business leaders in the eve of the Copenhagen Climate Summit. The letter stated, “If we fail to act now, it is scientifically irrefutable that there will be catastrophic and irreversible consequences for humanity and our planet.”

So does the president-elect really believe that global warming is a "hoax" as he said during the campaign? If so, will he pursue policies that are damaging to the environment at a time when it is teetering on the razors edge of disastrous change?

Whitley states that, in any case, Unknowncountry will continue to follow the lead of the visitors on this and the other great issue that concerns them, which is freedom. He points out that the founding fathers stated in the Declaration of Independence that "all men are created equal," and that the Constitution guarantees all the right to life, liberty and happiness. Racism, by its very nature, stands against these ideals, and the site will also continue its stance on behalf of the freedom of all men and their equality as part of the fundamental American social contract.
