Out there: Former Sen. Mike Gravel says White House suppressing evidence of ETs

By Rick Klein, Olivier Knox, Richard Coolidge, and Jordyn Phelps | Power Players – 43 mins ago

Even as most Americans wonder what planet politicians are from, is it possible that the government is squelching evidence of extraterrestrials visiting Earth? One former presidential hopeful says yes – and that the conspiracy goes all the way to the top.

Former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) says the White House has helped keep the truth about the “extraterrestrial influence that is investigating our planet” from the public.

“It goes right to the White House, and of course, once the White House takes a position, ‘well there's nothing going on’...it just goes down the chain of command, everyone stands toe,” Gravel tells Top Line.

Gravel is one of six former congress representatives who were paid $20,000 by the UFO advocacy group Paradigm Research to participate in a Congressional-style Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington this week, where witness after witness has presented first-hand accounts of UFO sightings and extraterrestrial visits.

Gravel says the strongest accounts of alien encounters are from former military officers, such as retired Air Force Capt. Robert Salas, who testified that UFOs temporarily disabled nuclear weapons on his watch.

“The smoking gun of the whole issue, which is when they saw hovering space craft in Wyoming and South Dakota over the ICBM missile silos that the missiles couldn't work,” Gravel says.

Gravel says the media has aided what he sees as a government cover-up by not taking reports of ET encounters seriously.

“What we're faced with here is, in areas of the media, and the government too, an effort to marginalize and ridicule people who have specific knowledge,” he says.

When asked about the fact that he was compensated for his participation in the hearing, Gravel says it did not influence him to agree with the testimony.

“This is an opportunity which I've taken to focus on this issue for an entire week and the preparation I made in coming to it, for my enrichment that's very important,” Gravel says.

For a ride into the outer limits of human knowledge on the possibility of alien life, and to hear how Gravel thinks the world should treat potential alien visitors, come along for this expedition of Top Line.

So much is wrong with that sentence.

would it really cause widespread panic if we really found out aliens are real, ufo's are real and we've been visited? I imagine there'd be a whole lotta "I told you so" going on. Not saying there wouldn't be social or even economical impacts but I just don't think it'd be the whole "people taking to the streets fucking stuff up" reaction people would expect.

I think most peoples reactions would either be "OK, and?" Or "Fucking duh..."

Now, if they started invading, then mass panic in the streets would be expected.

I think we, as a species, have been inundated with enough ET and UFO stuff over the years that we're just about completely desensitized to it. If they did come, if they were friendly we'd be like "hey, that's cool. Wanna play COD?" and if they were badass, we're all leveled up with COD and Walking Dead, Falling Skies, etc. and we'd just waste their asses.

I'm fairly convinced we're the aliens on this planet. Flying around, zapping blowing shit up, probing anus holes for 'research'.

The only way something like this could possibly be true is if the US government has a collection of a few events that they strongly suspect are extraterrestrial in origin, but they have no solid proof, so just going public with it would be pointless. As powerful as it is, the US government cannot account for the lack of any conclusive video or tangible evidence in non-governmental hands. In other words, you'd think something would get out there in today's media reality.

I think a lot of the amount of times people have hacked NASA and other government agencies and they haven't found (or at least acknowledged) that they found any data or evidence relating to UFO's

I'm secure in my opinion that a) aliens are out there and b) they've never visited us.

If Aliens do eventually visit this planet it would be to colonize and take over. We're assholes. It would be the equivalent of visiting your in laws. Nobody wants to do that.

So... a bunch of UFO carnies pays to have a convention in Washington DC real close to "governmenty stuff", and then they pay tens of thousands of dollars to a bunch of ex-government people to come listen to their "testimony". Testimony which amounts to a bunch of kooks who are hawking UFO books and merchandise.

Somebody call Scorch and tell him a bunch of UFO nuts are ripping off his PFG TV gimmick.
