Thursday on “The Alan Colmes Show,” Alan spoke with Washington’s only registered UFO lobbyist, Stephen Bassett, about what the government knows about discovering extraterrestrial life in the universe and if the public will ever truly be informed about it.
Bassett told Alan that the government has known about UFOs and their contact with humans for decades, including U.S. presidents who wanted to do further research. Bassett also said that it will be Barack Obama who will make history by being the first president to fully disclose what the government knows and explained why the media has been part of a coverup.
Out There: Obama May Release Tons of UFO Secrets Before Leaving Office
Before the beginning of 2017, US President Barack Obama is expected to declassify a large trove of information pertaining to aliens and UFOs.
The Paradigm Research Group, the only registered "alien disclosure" lobbyist in the United States, has been fighting for 20 years to get the White House to reveal what they know about the existence of extraterrestrials on Earth.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has similarly pledged to send a task force into Area 51 in Roswell, New Mexico, should she be elected. Her campaign manager, John Podesta, has long fought for the release of information regarding an alien presence on Earth.
“Podesta has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out. One way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51,” Clinton remarked to the Conway Daily Sun in December 2015.
Clash: You’re also known for your views on UFOs. What’s your experience regarding the Roswell, New Mexico, incident of 1947?
Mitchell: After my space flight, I was contacted by descendants of the original Roswell observers, including the person who delivered the child-sized coffins to the Air Force to contain alien bodies. Another was one of the children of the deputy sheriff who was patrolling traffic around the site.
There was also a military officer who was a friend of the families not involved in that particular operation, but who did share office space there. They all seemed credible with their stories that the bodies found were alien.
Clash: If that’s the case, why has it been hushed up?
Mitchell: Initially I think there was justification in that leadership officials thought people weren’t ready to handle it. But we are well past that now. Frankly, and this is just personal opinion, remember what (President) Eisenhower said in his final speech: “Beware the military industrial complex.” I suspect that’s what we’re talking about.
But it’s not just military. It’s a cabal of organizations primarily for a profit motive. We invented aircraft at the beginning of the 20th century.
