John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, says it’s time for the U.S. government to release any evidence it has about the existence of alien forms of life in outer space.
Podesta, who was also a chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, told CNN that if Hillary Clinton is elected, she’ll ask for as many records about Area 51 in Nevada as the U.S. government has to be declassified.
“I think that's a commitment that she intends to keep and that I intend to hold her to," Podesta told CNN.
Area 51 is a remote Air Force test and training range that’s been the subject of conspiracy theories, including UFO sightings.
"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," said Podesta.
Asked if the government is holding proof of alien life, Podesta said: “That’s for the public to judge once they’ve seen all the evidence that the U.S. government has.”
Asked about his own beliefs, Podesta simply said: “There are a lot of planets out there,” adding “the American people can handle the truth.”
I don't know whether i can handle it IF THERE are no aliens.
I've finally figured out what Hillary's campaign voice reminds me of! It's been nagging and nagging at me (kinda like Hillary, herself) for months. She tries to modify it from time to time when her handlers are able to convince her to tone it down, or perk it up, or sound more sincere. But, the sound of that voice always comes back to this:
So. Today, California and New York took the first steps to raising their intra-state minimum wage to $15.00 per hour over the next few years as the respective Governors signed the enabling legislation into effect.
The relevant politicians in those states flapped their jaws a bunch about "dignity" and "parity" and "economic justice."
I frankly don't think much consideration was given at all to actual "economics."
