Well, not exactly, but it got really close in a six degrees of Kevin Bacon kind of way. We all know that the now famous site has been hacking away at Hillary Clinton’s email servers every chance they get. In their latest score, they found a couple of emails from Dr. Edgar Mitchell, former astronaut and the sixth man to walk on the moon, to John Podesta, former adviser to President Barack Obama turned campaign chairman for Clinton.
Dr. Mitchell spent nine hours on the surface of the moon as part of the Apollo 14 mission in 1971. In the decades following his return, the former astronaut became convinced that not only is there life on other planets, but they continue to visit our planet from time to time to observe our cultures. In the emails, Dr. Mitchell expresses his desire to meet with Podesta specifically about three topics.
A Desire to Discuss Government Knowledge of Alien Life Forms
Dr. Mitchell claims that not only the US government but other governing bodies around the world have concrete proof of ETI (extra terrestrial intelligence). Furthermore, he named a colleague, Terri Mansfield, who would be willing to join a proposed meeting to update Podesta on the Vatican’s awareness of ETI. In another email, he cites Bill and Hillary Clinton as being former friends of Laurance Rockefeller, a man who spent the last years of his life in the search for proof of the government’s knowledge of ETI.
In truth, Rockefeller and his niece, Anne Bartley, established the UFO Disclosure Initiative to the Clinton White House. The initiative’s sole purpose was the declassification of all governmental information, including that from the CIA and US Air Force, about the existence of Extra Terrestrial Intelligence.
A Belief that ETI Are Willing to Share Technology to Allow Us to Develop Zero Point Energy on Earth
What is Zero Point Energy you ask? Clean, self sustaining, limitless energy.
You read that right. The ability to supply our world with power forever without further damaging the planet to do so. Mitchell claimed that alien societies already possess this energy and could easily aid us in our development. He goes on to make reference, somewhat cryptically, that he knew of a couple of different groups already working to create this energy and had actually hired him on as a consultant.
A Belief that ETI will NOT Tolerate any Violence on our Planet that Spills into Space
In fact, Dr. Mitchell in an email sent on August 8, 2015 was sent to remind Podesta that the ETI who were assisting us in the development of Zero Point Energy would withhold their support due to military violence on Earth and in space. He went on to provide links for various articles written about the ability of China, Russia, and the US to use satellite technology to wage war upon each other.
He spoke about writing a treaty titled Treaty on the Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space, and the necessity of having all three major powers sign and adhere to it.
The email then took an ominous turn.
“It sounds like science fiction, but the potential for real-life star wars is real enough. It’s just not new. Fears of battles in space go back to the Cold War and several initiatives, like President Reagan’s “Star Wars” missile-defense system.
Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work spoke to Congress in June about the threat. He said during a speech the technology the U.S. developed during the Cold War allows it “to project more power, more precisely, more swiftly, at less cost.”
Take a moment to think about everything satellites do. GPS, surveillance and communications all depend on them. And the Scientific American notes you can disable satellites without missiles. Simply spray-painting lenses or breaking antennas is enough.
President Obama requested $5 billion for space defense in the 2016 fiscal budget. And a former Air Force officer told the Scientific American most of the United States’ capabilities in space have been declassified to send a clear message: There are no rules for war in space.”
So, why email Podesta?
John Podesta has his own history linked with the belief in UFOs and ETI. Some of these beliefs have become hot button topics due to the high positions he has held in government.
Press Secretary Mike McCurry has been quoted as saying, “John can get totally maniacal and phobic on certain subjects. He’s been known to pick up the phone to call the Air Force and ask them what’s going on in Area 51.”
It’s possible that Mitchell saw in Podesta a compatriot, and Podesta had ins with just the right people to get the ball rolling for Dr. Mitchell to access the information that he needed. Unfortunately, Dr. Edgar Mitchell succumbed to a long term illness in hospice care in February of 2016.
We may never know or understand the full extent of what Dr. Mitchell was trying to convey in those emails. He often wrote of things he could only discuss via Skype or in person. It’s easy to write some of these things off as the ramblings of a conspiracy theorist, but let us not forget that this was an intelligent man. He was a scientist to his dying day.
Most importantly, though…he had been there. He has traveled where only a few from our planet can claim. He has seen that which lies outside our planet’s atmosphere up close and personal. He walked on the softly glowing orb that we gaze upon at night. Who better would know what lies beyond our lives on earth than the man who has been there?
