We’ve already established that Herman Cain’s chief of staff Mark Block is the new Cigarette Smoking Man. But the cover-up goes all the way to the top. Yesterday, the White House said it has no evidence of alien visitations. Can you believe it!?!
In a WhiteHouse.gov post entitled Searching for ET, But No Evidence Yet, Phil Larson of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy provides the official White House response to two citizen petitions concerning the government’s knowledge of alien visitations. The first, signed by 5,387 citizens, insists that the U.S. government “Immediately disclose the government’s knowledge of and communication with extraterrestrial beings“:
This Petition calls for the President to disclose to the American people the long withheld knowledge of government interactions with extraterrestrial beings and call for open Congressional hearings to allow the people to become aware of this subject through those whose voices have been silenced by unconstitutional secrecy oaths.
The second petition, signed by 12,078 people, asks that the government “Formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race-Disclosure” (yes, it’s got a “disclosure” just tacked on there at the end):
We, the undersigned, strongly urge the President of the United States to formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and immediately release into the public domain all files from all agencies and military services relevant to this phenomenon.
Hundreds of military and government agency witnesses have come forward with testimony confirming this extraterrestrial presence. Opinion polls now indicate more than 50% of the American people believe there is an extraterrestrial presence and more than 80% believe the government is not telling the truth about this phenomenon. The people have a right to know. The people can handle the truth.
Together, they got a response this past week:
Searching for ET, But No Evidence Yet
By Phil Larson
Thank you for signing the petition asking the Obama Administration to acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence here on Earth.
The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye.
However, that doesn’t mean the subject of life outside our planet isn’t being discussed or explored. In fact, there are a number of projects working toward the goal of understanding if life can or does exist off Earth. Here are a few examples:
SETI—the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence—was originally stood up with help from NASA, but has since been moved to other sources of private funding. SETI’s main purpose is to act as a giant ear on behalf of the human race, pointing an array of ground-based telescopes towards space to listen for any signal from another world.
Kepler is a NASA spacecraft in Earth orbit that’s main goal is to search for Earth-like planets. Such a planet would be located in the “Goldilocks” zone of a distant solar system—not too hot and not too cold—and could potentially be habitable by life as we know it. The Kepler mission is specifically designed to survey our region of the Milky Way galaxy to discover Earth-sized, rocky planets in or near the habitable zone of the star (sun) they orbit.
The Mars Science Laboratory, Curiosity, is an automobile-sized rover that NASA is launching soon. The rover’s onboard laboratory will study rocks, soils, and other geology in an effort to detect the chemical building blocks of life (e.g., forms of carbon) on Mars and will assess what the Martian environment was like in the past to see if it could have harbored life.
A last point: Many scientists and mathematicians have looked with a statistical mindset at the question of whether life likely exists beyond Earth and have come to the conclusion that the odds are pretty high that somewhere among the trillions and trillions of stars in the universe there is a planet other than ours that is home to life.
Many have also noted, however, that the odds of us making contact with any of them—especially any intelligent ones—are extremely small, given the distances involved.
But that’s all statistics and speculation. The fact is we have no credible evidence of extraterrestrial presence here on Earth.
If that doesn’t satisfy you, you’re almost guaranteed not to be alone.
After all, if this cover-up’s been going on ever since the 1952 Washington Flap — or since Mulder’s Dad screwed over some sailor from an alien-infested submarine — then you can rest assured that a couple of online petitions aren’t going to convince the Illuminati to unlock the vaults of knowledge and open the doors of perception. But they might make aliens Facebook famous!
