Six former members of Congress to hear space alien testimony

Six former members of Congress to hear space alien testimony By Justin Sink - 04/29/13 11:29 AM ET

Six former members of Congress have signed up for a week of congressional-style testimony on the existence of space aliens.

The hearing, which will occur this week at the National Press Club, will feature some 30 hours of testimony on the possible existence of extraterrestrials and be recorded for a documentary film. Around three dozen researchers and academics are expected to testify.

Participants will include ex-Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska), and ex-Reps. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D-Mich.), Darlene Hooley (D-Ore.), Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.) and Merrill Cook (R-Utah).

The event is being sponsored by the Paradigm Research Group, a lobbying group for alien research. According to the Detroit News, the organization is paying Kilpatrick $20,000 plus expenses for her participation, although the former congresswoman said she has always been interested in the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

"It's good to be here," she told the paper. "We're excited. I've been reading and watching, and so I'm looking forward to the week's activities."

Bartlett told the Federick, Md., News-Post that while he never saw evidence of a government conspiracy during his time in office, he had an open mind.

"It's a huge universe out there," he said. "You have to be kind of presumptuous and arrogant to assume we're the only intelligent life in the universe."

Last year, the White House responded to a pair of petitions posted to the government's "We the People" petition site asking that the administration disclose whether there had ever been contact with space aliens. The White House has promised to answer all petitions that pass a set threshold.

"The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race," Phil Larson of the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy said in a statement. "In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye."

Which is more likely:

1: Aliens from space exist
2: The GOP governs conservatively.

I think the group need to focus on the terrorist we have killing Christians and Jews instead of UFO’s..The little green men and women have been around for thousands of years and as far as I know none have murdered anyone ..now you see guys we have bigger problems than to waste our money on flying saucers..

Well, you've got the presumptuous and arrogant part down... the rest needs some work.

I wonder if they will cover Project Serpo....

Or the battle of Dulce...

Of the fact that we gave away the cow and the country in the 1950’s under ill conceived treaty with the alien bastards.

Given the fact that there are hundreds of billions of galaxies (each with hundreds of millions of stars), no doubt aliens exist somewhere. However given the laws of physics its a virtual certainty that no biological alien has ever visited the earth. However over the past twenty years earth has been transmiting an endless stream of digital alogromithic data. An electronic response may be soon be coming. There may be in fact a string of civilizations linked in this manner.

Are you assuming we know all there is to know about physics?

“Bartlett told the Federick, Md., News-Post that while he never saw evidence of a government conspiracy during his time in office, he had an open mind.

“It’s a huge universe out there,” he said. “You have to be kind of presumptuous and arrogant to assume we’re the only intelligent life in the universe.”

He may have better stated that by saying they might be the ONLY intelligent life in the universe....

"In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye."

Two assertions which are provably false on the face of them. Documents exist which prove the government not only knew UFOs are real but that non-terrestrial entities were involved with these objects, and has purposely conducted a disinformation campaign regarding the government's involvement in the issues. So, the WH tosses out two more lies to join the mountain of lies they spew daily. Nothing new in that game, but the venue will be interesting to follow.

“However given the laws of physics its a virtual certainty that no biological alien has ever visited the earth ...” Well that answers my immediate question regarding how idiotic a statement ... and the poster doesn’t even comprehend how stupid the assertion is that we know ALL the laws of Physics. In fact, we are discovering that we poorly comporehend the laws we’ve discovered! Even Maxwell’s equations ahd solutions which call into question the Einstein theory of general relativity being the end all of Physics laws!
