Although your Curmudgeon is a Republican, we’ve always given you the news about crazy Republican candidates and creationism. It’s only fair, therefore, that we report what’s going on in the other party.
At the CNN website we found this headline: Clinton campaign chair: ‘The American people can handle the truth’ on UFOs. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
There has long been an air of conspiracy surrounding theories of alien life, and the head of Hillary Clinton’s campaign said Thursday it’s time to do away with the secrecy. CNN’s Jake Tapper pulled aside Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, who was a guest on “The Lead,” to talk aliens.
Aha! Now , maybe we’ll find out what going on. We’re told:
“The U.S. government could do a much better job in answering the quite legitimate questions that people have about what’s going on with unidentified aerial phenomena,” Podesta said.
Podesta has made his interest in the possibility of alien life and conspiratorial leanings toward Area 51 well known. During his time serving in the Obama administration, Podesta tweeted, “Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstilloutthere cc: @NYTimesDowd.”
Hillary chose the right man to head her campaign! Let’s read on:
Clinton herself pledged in January to “get to the bottom” of whether rumors of U.S. contact with extraterrestrial life were true.
See? It’s no accident that Hillary chose Podesta. CNN continues:
In regard to Area 51, Podesta echoed Clinton’s call, saying, “What I’ve talked to the secretary about, and what she’s said now in public, is that if she’s elected president, when she gets into office, she’ll ask for as many records as the United States federal government has to be declassified, and I think that’s a commitment that she intends to keep and that I intend to hold her to.”
There’s more to the story, but we’ve already given you the good stuff. Your Curmudgeon hopes that this information will be useful in helping you to choose the best candidate.
