A recent London-based poll revealed that more people believe in extraterrestrials than God. In other words, these days more and more people look to the heavens not for a deity, but rather … an E.T..
And, if the fanaticism of alien lore and other-worldly creatures have a “Mecca”, it’s becomes a coin toss between two extremely specific locations in the middle of nowhere, in the Southwestern United States.
Area 51 — otherwise known as “Dreamland” or “Paradise Ranch” or “Home Base” or Homey Airport or Groom Lake — located adjacent to Edwards Air Force Base within the Nevada Test and Training Range in southern Nevada.
Or Roswell, New Mexico — where in 1947 a presumed “flying saucer” crashed. According to the U.S. military, however, it was nothing more than a weather balloon (part of “Project Mogul”, created to spy on the Soviet Union’s nuclear weapons testing from the air).
Apart from unrequited promises of funny-looking spaceships and little green men, these two United States Air Force locales have one other huge thing in common.
They, together, have — albeit indirectly — successfully exposed former Secretary of State and current Democratic presidential nominee frontrunner Hillary Clinton to be the pathological panderer/grand deceiver many already suspected her of being.
The formula that solves for this unequivocal truth is actually quite simple. Please allow us a few paragraphs to draw it up.
During her most recent stop in New Hampshire, Clinton was asked by a reporter for The Conway Daily Sun (who also claims to have asked her the same zinger back in 2007) about Area 51, to which the former senator replied “yes, I’m going to get to the bottom of it … I think we may have been visited already. We don’t know for sure.”
Soon thereafter she mistakenly called it “Area 54” (perhaps confusing it with “Studio 54”, maybe?) over and over again before righting herself.
She even dropped this incredulous line, after divulging that her campaign chairman, John Podesta, was a dogmatic UFO head (via the Sun and Foxtrot Alpha):
“[Podesta] has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out,” said Clinton. “One way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51.”
Are you thinking what we’re thinking?
Hillary Clinton was born Hillary Diane Rodham on October 26, 1947. On October 11, 1975, she married William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton, who on January 20, 1993 was inaugurated as the 42nd President of the United States of America.
If she really wanted the answers to these Area 51/Roswell/UFO questions, all she would have to do is ask her husband who — mind you — hasn’t dodged the question himself in public, in spite of the fact that he signed an executive order maintaining that the records of the Nevada base remain top secret (an order that’s been renewed by every sitting president since).
It’s hard to believe that Bill wouldn’t let if wife in on the secret if it was so important to her; if there was one at all. Of course, the reality is that the mysterious corner of the airbase is — in all likelihood — used to develop advanced air combat technology that must stay cloaked because the U.S. has enemies both foreign and domestic and that’s how maintaining the most expensive military in the world works (over $600 billion, distance second is China at $171 billion).
Of course every politician panders, it’s a game one must play on the path to power, but come on, Hillary. Don’t treat Americans like they’re stupid. And have some dignity. Because, let’s be real: you believe in aliens like a Rhodes scholar believes in Santa.
