UFO Conspiracy Theorists Excited for Hillary 2016, She is Definitely ‘Out There,’ Anyway

Looks like Hillary has the UFOlogist constituency all wrapped up. Apparently UFO nuts are all excited about a possible President Hillary Clinton because it seems she has surrounded herself with people who believe in UFOs.

UFO lovers think that Hillary will be good for them[1] and their claims that the USA has millions of UFO documents it refuses to release to the public.

As reported by AJ Vicens in Mother Jones, much of this hopefulness is being fueled by Hillary’s prior, and even current, ties to UFO enthusiasts and conspiracy nutters. But it’s guilt by association; Hillary has never given any indication she’s into this wacky stuff.

As Vicens writes:

In particular, [UFO activists] are encouraged that John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff, will likely chair Clinton’s campaign and would likely serve in another Clinton White House. As a self-described “curious skeptic,” Podesta has openly called for greater government transparency on UFO-related matters. In his forward to UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record, a 2011 book by journalist Leslie Kean, he wrote, “It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. The American people—and people around the world—want to know, and they can handle the truth.”

Podesta’s interest in extraterrestrial phenomenon is nothing new. In 1998, theWashington Post described his “fanatical devotion to ‘The X-Files’—especially FBI agent Fox Mulder, with whom he shares a penchant for obsessiveness and paranoia.” Grant Cameron, a Canadian UFO researcher, unsuccessfully tried to get the Clinton Library to release records detailing Podesta’s X-Files-themed 50th birthday party, which was apparently thrown by the first couple—who may have dressed up as the show’s main characters.

Yep, she is definitely way, way out.
