The latest rounds of DNC leaks have had a complicated impact both on the political climate within the U.S. and on diplomatic relations with Russia, whom the Obama administration has blamed for sponsoring the hackers. However, a number of bizarre emails have surfaced that might hint at a conflict far greater in scope than any petty squabble, one with surprising links between the Clinton campaign and extraterrestrial life forms. Yes, aliens.
At center stage in the unfolding sci-fi drama is John Podesta, the Chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign machine and former Chief of Staff to Bill Clinton. As something of a pet project parallel to his political duties, Podesta has become the de facto advocate on behalf of all tinfoil hat-wearing people out there who believe that the government is hiding what it knows about aliens.
“I think I’ve convinced [Hillary] that we need an effort to kind of go look at that and declassify as much as we can, so that people have their legitimate questions answered,” Podesta told KLAS back in March. “More attention and more discussion about unexplained aerial phenomena can happen without people — who are in public life, who are serious about this — being ridiculed.”
Despite Podesta’s impressive credentials and his unquestionable access to sensitive information, many have been quick to lambast him for getting swept up in a so-called conspiracy theory.
“I come in for my fair share of people raising questions about whether I’m off my rocker, but I’ve been a longtime advocate of declassification of records,” Podesta lamented. “People really want to know what the government knows.”
Enter Dr. Edgar Mitchell. In 1971, Mitchell became the sixth person to walk on the moon as part of the Apollo 14 program. After retiring from NASA the following year, Mitchell remained out of the public eye until 1998, when he called on the government to allow top-ranking officials to speak about their experience with extraterrestrial lifeforms without fear of prosecution. He claimed, with 90 percent certainty, that a significant number of UFOs that had been spotted since the 1940s were a result of alien activity.
Mitchell passed away in February 2016, but his name has resurfaced thanks to the DNC leaks, which linked Mitchell to Podesta via email correspondence between the two. The cryptic messages all but confirm that Mitchell was desperately trying to warn Podesta about possible extraterrestrial threats in the year before his death.
In the first email, which Mitchell sent to Podesta in January 2015, the former astronaut attempts to connect Podesta with a number of officials who seem to be working toward a “Space Treaty” in order to facilitate “peace in space” between earthly nations:
It is urgent that we agree on a date and time to meet to discuss Disclosure and Zero Point Energy, at your earliest available after your departure. My Catholic colleague Terri Mansfield will be there too, to bring us up to date on the Vatican’s awareness of ETI. Another colleague is working on a new Space Treaty, citing involvement with Russia and China. However with Russia’s extreme interference in Ukraine, I believe we must pursue another route for peace in space and ZPE on Earth.
In the second email, sent in August 2015, Mitchell urgently warns about “nonviolent ETI [extraterrestrial intelligence]” that would prove hostile to Earthlings if we began waging war against each other in space:
Because the War in Space race is heating up, I felt you should be aware of several factors as you and I schedule our Skype talk. Remember, our nonviolent ETI from the contiguous universe are helping us bring zero point energy to Earth. They will not tolerate any forms of military violence on Earth or in space.
Mitchell goes on to provide a slew of sources that warn about a three-pronged war between the United States, China, and Russia that could be fought over space superiority. Such a war, according to Mitchell, would scare the aliens away and rob us of zero point energy – a mind-bogglingly unintuitive quantum mechanical concept with potentially pseudo-magical applications if it were to be harnessed.
Beyond their gift of brain-bending knowledge, though, Mitchell believed that aliens were responsible for quelling conflicts between humans as far back as the 1940s. Mitchell, who grew up in New Mexico near the atomic bomb testing site in Alamogordo and the fabled UFO destination of Roswell, told Mirror online about his firsthand experiences.
“My own experience talking to people has made it clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to war and help create peace on Earth,” he said. “I have spoken to many Air Force officers who worked at these silos during the Cold War. They told me UFOs were frequently seen overhead and often disabled their missiles.”
The fact that Mitchell had maintained such close contact with Podesta seems to imply that the Clinton campaign has more than just a passing interest in the extraterrestrial. Hillary herself addressed the issue during a New Hampshire campaign stop in 2015, opining that Earth might have already been visited by aliens.
Hillary also claimed that, if elected, she has made a pact with Podesta to finally release government secrets concerning aliens.
“[Podesta] has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out,” she said. “One way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51.”
