In Washington, everyone has their issue. But it's probably safe to say that Stephen Bassett's is a little more colorful. Bassett, the executive director of the Paradigm Research Group, wants the U.S. government to lift what he calls the "truth embargo" and acknowledge that extraterrestrials are real and are engaging the human race. "Think of me as a very committed political activist like any other, whether it's the civil rights movement, or the gay rights movement, or the women's rights movement, or any other," he told Yeas & Nays.
Though his movement is a wee bit more alien.
Bassett and his allies are taking over the National Press Club in downtown D.C. from April 29 to May 3 to host the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure. "What we are going to do is bring the largest concentration of witnesses ever assembled in one place, at one time, and they are going to testify exactly as if they were in a real congressional hearing," Bassett explained. Former members of Congress are being tapped to run the hearings, while witnesses, including former astronaut (and sixth man on the moon) Edgar Mitchell, are coming in from around the world. A film production crew from Los Angeles will film the whole thing, turning "Truth Embargo" into a documentary.
Bassett hopes that eventually the media will force the government to come clean. "All political advocacy is a chess game that we play with the government, we are trying to maneuver that situation," he said. "The issue's been taken seriously for a very long time now," he added.
Good, in a way. The more time the idiots in DC spend on stupid crap like this the better.
Extraterrestrials definitely are on the Earth and controling certain aspects of our life and culture. I mean, how else can you explain the popularity of Keeping Up with the Kardashians other than extraterrestrial mind control?
Who’s to say that extraterrestrials haven’t visited the earth and the US government covered it up? Given how so much about Obama’s history has been ginned up he might be one of them.
To be able to travel many light years, you would need extreme intelligence. Do you see the disconnect?
“To be able to travel many light years, you would need extreme intelligence. Do you see the disconnect?”
Not at all. As an alien out to impose his will on us he was smart enough to register as a Democrat, curry favor with the Chicago political machine, and he was smart enough to dazzle the dolts of the media.
May I borrow your FTL drive?
I was kind of hoping for an ET type alien instead of a tyrant. I guess we better get Will Smith on the job...Jeff Goldbloom too.
Certainly. I just replaced the dilithium crystals.
Well it makes more sense than what has been happening in Washington the last 50 or so years, damn sure less dangerous to the Constitution and us.
Maybe the “aliens” are putting the human species through a series of tests, a maze if you will, to determine our average level of intelligence. I’d say the fact that we continue to elect and follow the most incompetent of leaders speaks volumes.
I would like off this rock please.
She can do the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs.
My God...we’ve gone plaid.
If there are extras then the government would cover it up, if there aren’t then they would pretend to cover it up so as to detract from other incompetence.
Quix ol’ buddy, if you’re reading this you really ought to re-register under a new name and get on this game.
RED MEAT - COME AND GET IT!
The author is an Historian, a damned good one at that!

Many in the disclosure kook crowd have woven together a New Age ET religion with radical enviornmentalist and communist Utopian ideals.
To them, ET’s are to be the saviours of planet earth - all knowing gods. They think the ET’s created mankind.
Further, they think that Christians and other unevolved people will be taken by the ET’s from earth and only the those of enlightenment or “evolved consciousness” will be allowed to stay.
