2014 Libertarian Candidate for Governor Praises Hillary Clinton for Discussing UFO Disclosure
Hudson, WI 7 AM – On December 30th, 2015, Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton spoke to the editorial board of the New Hampshire paper The Conway Daily Sun. After the event, the former Secretary of State was asked about the UFO issue by journalist for the paper, Daymond Steer. “Yes, I’m going to get to the bottom of it,” was the candidates response.
This was not the first time Steer had asked the question of the candidate while she was running for president. In 2007 she was asked about the issue and if she supported government disclosure and said at the time she supported the disclosure activist.
“It is a brave position for a politician to take,” said Robert Burke, 2014 Libertarian candidate for Governor. “and it is the right one. Like her campaign Chair and husband’s former Chief of Staff, John Podesta, I believe it’s time for the government to come clean on what they know. Not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it’s the law.”
Burke is referring to a 2002 and 2003 statement by Podesta who called for the release of the UFO files during a press conference at the National Press Club. Podesta recently completed a year of work for the Obama administration on climate change and tweeted upon leaving, “My greatest regret was not securing the release of the UFO files. #TheTruthisoutthere.”
Clinton made it very clear to the reporter in NH that a driving force behind her support was her Campaign Chair, “He has made me personally pledge that we are going to get the information out.” The Clinton’s have a a long history with Podesta on the issue going back to the mid 1990’s when billionaire Lawrence Rockefeller engaged the then Clinton White House to release the UFO files. The initiative became known as “The Rockefeller Initiative,” and thousands of documents confirming the effort have been released through the Freedom of Information Act.
Burke was clear about why this issue is so important to the 2016 election. “The public’s general understanding of the issue comes from 70 years of government propaganda and disinformation of the subject. Those who have not taken the time to explore the implications of disclosure do not understand why this is issue matters so much at a time when we are facing the challenge of climate change. Whether the climate change is man made or related to our sun is not settled science, but the changes are clear.”
This is not the first time the former candidate has spoken out on the issue. In late 2014 he issued a press release in support of Washington’s only Exopolitics lobbyist Steve Bassett and his delivery of a landmark Mock Congressional Hearing DVD set to every member of congress.
Robert Burke’s advocacy on the topic of a government cover-up of alien activity has been controversial before. This press release was not released or approved by the Libertarian Party of Wisconsin, as it is mis-attributed by WisPolitics.
