George Soros pal, John Podesta, says that his ′biggest failure′ while serving as a counselor to Barack Obama is not getting the federal government′s UFO files released. Podesta tweeted this Friday on his last day in the Obama White House. The former Chief of Staff to Bill Clinton, Podesta announced his departure in early January. He joined the Obama administration to work on climate change issues and is leaving to work for Hillary Clinton, presumably for her presidential campaign, if she ever declares she′s running. Podesta tweeted on Twitter, ″1. Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstillouthere cc @NYTTimesDowd″. During his days as Bill Clinton′s Chief of Staff, John Podesta did oversee the declassifying of millions of government files. He is a UFO ′enthusiast′ who has even spoken on the subject at the National Press Club, advocating the release of all UFO files and data more than 25 years old.

Podesta is a slippery character, especially judging by his circle of friends and his ideology. But even I′ll give him some credit when due and this one counts. There is no good reason why the government should keep what they know about UFOs secret any longer. Certainly if its just limited to sightings and such from more than 25 years ago. Britain, France, Belgium, and other nations have been dumping their old UFO files in the past few years, making them public. I haven′t seen any signs of cultural shock or mass suicides as a result so far. So why not us, too? Why does our government feel so paranoid about the whole thing?

In 2005, former Canadian Defense Minister, Paul Hellyer, went public testifying that UFOs are visiting Earth on a regular basis. Earlier this year, Hellyer, 90, gave an interview on Russia Today saying that there are some 80 species of aliens from other worlds, with perhaps four species walking amongst us now. He mentioned one group of ″tall white″ extraterrestrials are working with the U.S. Air Force at a base in Nevada.

Files released by other countries are not as specific as what Hellyer says, but they do add to the mystery behind the UFO phenomenon. Recordings of radar tracks as well as eyewitness accounts by military and commercial airline pilots do point to many sightings being something much more than just weather balloons. Some of UFO files possessed by the FBI and CIA have been declassified. Most of the CIA files explain many sightings as being U-2 and SR-71 spy planes. One memo for FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover shows that a team of investigators did look into the famous Roswell, New Mexico crash and appears to verify that something strange happened there, including the recovery of unusual bodies from the crash site.

While I′m glad to see him leave the Barack Obama White House, I am sympathetic to John Podesta and his ′biggest failure′ on not getting more UFO files declassified. I would have been happy if he spent more time on that than trying to sell us on the climate change myth. Just the Vostock ice core samples alone show that climate change is a natural, constant condition, totally unrelated to anything we humans do. For much of the last 500,000 years, average temperatures are some 10 to 12 degrees cooler than now. In between the numerous Ice Ages are relatively short warming periods, usually lasting a few centuries before another cool-down. Maybe the former Chief of Staff to Bill Clinton will advise Hillary Clinton to make UFO disclosure a campaign issue? Given the latest political fallout from Oregon over alleged corruption involving green energy scams, global warming may be too hot of a potato to handle.
