Hillary Clinton is hedging her bets regarding UFO disclosure, saying that if there are national security issues involved, she won’t be able to proceed after she enters office.
We know for certain that Jimmy Carter promised to tell all prior to entering office, then refused to do so. More recently, he has refused even answer questions about the matter.
Laurence Rockefeller was a passing acquaintance of mine, and we once had a discussion about what happened when he attempted to confront Bill Clinton with the question. Clinton replied, simply, that he couldn’t discuss it.
We also know that there are documents that are more than thirty years old that are not defined as national security matters, otherwise John Podesta, in his February tweet on the subject, would not have added that revealing them is “the law.” Unless there is a continuing national security need, information must be released from classification after a 30 year period.
However, if the release of a piece of information might lead indirectly to compromise of a national security matter, then that information can continue to be withheld.
Astronaut Gordon Cooper observed a UFO on the ground at Edwards Air Force Base in 1957. He said publicly, and told me personally, that films had been taken of it and sent on to Washington. They were obviously classified because they have never been released. They were of a silver object standing at the end of a runway, according to Cooper. It displayed no weapons and appeared to pose no threat. So the photographs do not show something that displays a threat. They would be an example, perhaps, of what John Podesta was referring to when he said that there are documents that should be released because they are no longer legally classified. (Note: there has been some online controversy about whether or not Cooper saw the object itself. His public statements are ambiguous. He told me that he saw it personally.)
I have been told by somebody I believe to be reliable that Jimmy Carter received a briefing about this subject that moved him deeply and upset him profoundly, and led to his subsequent refusal to discuss it further.
It seems clear enough that there is an overarching national security issue that prevents the release of any and all documentary evidence that UFOs are intelligently controlled. Or is it a national security issue? It could also be a social issue.
Say the Gordon Cooper photographs were released, or documents confirming that objects had been detected in the past that were indisputably under intelligent control, what would happen?
I doubt that more than a week would pass before the media would be asking about the alien abductions. Moreover, in the interest of ratings, they would be telling the most sensational and terrifying stories they could, without the slightest sense of responsibility and little regard for the truth. The very worst practitioners of the cult of the evil alien would become immediate sensations.
People like me, with my complex vision of this enigma, would be ignored. The public wants a story about good guys and bad guys, not a nuanced and subtle approach that leads with questions. And yet, in the absence of such an approach, any disclosure process is in danger of becoming a great waste.
I think, and have thought for a long time, that the visitors themselves, in all their complexity and contradiction, are probably in control of the disclosure process. I doubt that it’s ever going to be up to a president, or anybody in our official world, to make any final decisions about it. What’s worse, those keeping the secrets may not be entirely candid about their reasons for doing so, or their need for secrecy.
If you were a newly elected president and suddenly found yourself in a briefing being directed in a way that you had never imagined possible and by individuals you had never dreamed existed, you would be shocked into a loss of discrimination. Anything that was said to you under such circumstances, you would take as gospel.
However, from my long experience with the visitors, I would say that such a reaction is literally the worst possible response. Even under such circumstances, which I know from my own life are fantastically difficult to handle, a degree of skepticism must be preserved.
For example, despite the public folklore and the secret community’s assumptions, we don’t even know if we’re dealing with aliens. We don’t know what we’re dealing with. None of us do, not even those who have been told by the visitors themselves what the truth is. It may or may not be the truth. In fact, it’s perfectly possible that the visitors—by which I mean the whole array of apparitions assumed to be aliens—might not know what they are any more than we know what we are.
So the person entering the White House is going to be confronted by an astonishing emotional and intellectual challenge that it would take years of preparation to have the slightest hope of responding in a useful manner.
Over the past few years, I have been laying what I hope is some good intellectual groundwork in publishing Solving the Communion Enigma and Super Natural. Should there be disclosure, the books point a way to rational discussion of the issues it presents.
Maybe that will make a difference. I like to think it might. Perhaps if the groundwork I and others have been doing matters at all, the visitors will allow the edge of the curtain to be raised after all. We certainly need it. We are on the accelerating curve of an extinction event on Planet Earth, and a new perspective is crucial to our survival.
An admission that the visitors were an unknown and intelligent presence would bring our best minds to the problem. I cannot even imagine what they would discover, but I do know this: a door will be opened, and a new world will beckon to us from the beyond.
