What could be gained by the Democratic front-runner for the U.S. Presidency to interject the issue of UFOs into her campaign? The truth is I don’t know. But I can speculate. The speculation starts with the assumption that UFOs are a real phenomenon that the government knows exists, but is unwilling to admit. If we don’t assume at least that much, then I can’t really see any advantage for Hillary Clinton to mention the subject.
As a candidate who is not adored among her supporters, or trusted among the voters generally, what would be the advantage to mention the topic if she thought it were a dead end? It would seem to have only downside and no upside. However, what if she felt she needed to swing for the fence with some truly game changing information that could change the dynamic and the topic of the race.
There is no doubt that changing the topic of her campaign would be helpful. Recently, she has faced questions about her health. She is facing an insurgent campaign from Bernie Sanders that seems to be gathering momentum. Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades have been forcefully reconstituted in the new book, The ‘Clintons’ War on Women, and are systematically seeping into the campaign. Her role in the destruction of the credibility of Bill’s victims is a major part of the book and an awkward issue for the campaign. The never shy Donald Trump has not so gently fanned those flames.
The Clinton Foundation’s fundraising from foreign sources is still ripe for discussion. The Benghazi affair lingers. Finally, and probably most importantly, the classified email problem continues to fester and could result in an indictment. An indictment in the middle of the campaign would be almost insurmountable. All these issues undercut the image of Hillary as a champion of women and a competent, trustworthy leader. Disclosure is the one issue that could vaporize every one of her political liabilities and render Donald Trump and the seven dwarfs irrelevant.
Hillary would probably not be the Disclosure President. However, For Hillary to get the political benefit of Disclosure, she only has to set off the chain reaction and watch as President Obama makes the announcement. In this one stroke, Obama is made relevant and thrust back into a worldwide media storm, not the story of the year, but the story of all recorded human history. While President Obama might bask in the attention, he would have to answer some of the most difficult and delicate questions a President has ever been asked, thus clearing the way for the next President to continue the project of Disclosure with very little political risk.
In the meantime, Disclosure would suck all of the air out of the election, obliterating her political baggage. She would then become a champion of truth on the most important issue of all time. She would be instantly changed into the good government advocate that brought transparency to that good ole boy military-industrial complex, which had been sitting on this truth for its own purposes for at least 70 years. It would give her the power to move forward and control the debate on the issue.
It would disconnect her from the systematic deception of the government. How would Americans react if the country had been denied the benefits of transformative technologies paid for by the citizens but hidden for decades? What if NASA had been building rockets while the government had space technology capable of traveling easily to planets and maybe the stars? By initiating the start of Disclosure, Hillary Clinton would guarantee her role as the first women President and the greatest whistleblower the world has ever seen.
One can imagine the confusion and consternation of the two leading Republicans with the change of topic. How could Donald Trump recapture the limelight? His campaign against illegal “aliens” would take on a new meaning. He would no doubt brag that he had long known everything there is to know about UFOs. (In fact he was trailed by a UFO at a recent campaign stop.) But he would be in the most uncomfortable position of having President Obama and Hillary Clinton leading the discussion with the real inside scoop.
Ted Cruz would have a different problem. Since his base is substantially made up of the evangelical right, the religious implications would pose a serious challenge to this groups religious world views. Would they take the position that Disclosure was an elaborate conspiracy? Not a preposterous idea. Would they express the revelation as demonic interference and mesh this notion into their end-times theology? A person with Cruz’s intellect, political smarts, and obvious religious faith, would have to very quickly come up with a convincing and unifying reaction.
Many American’s would sigh a bit of relief that the government had finally admitted what was obvious to them. The cultural conditioning that has been going on for the last 70 years would finally make sense to everyone. If Hillary could pull off Disclosure, she would likely guarantee her election. However, if she attempted it and failed, it would probably be the final nail in the coffin of her candidacy. Either way, it would be the most interesting Presidential Campaign in American History.
