Presidential candidates will often place focus on topics that pique the interest of the masses in an effort to conjure up votes from the population of the United States. Hillary Clinton is no exception, revealing that she will expose files related to Area 51 if elected president even those that might contain information confirming the presence of UFOs and aliens.
Hillary Clinton surprised UFO connoisseurs and conspiracy theorists alike when she announced her plan to declassify Area 51 documents on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Although she is currently leading Bernie Sanders by a significant margin, her surprise announcement could further her lead and potentially send her to the highest office in the United States as the curiosity of the American populace wonders what is really happening at Area 51 in Roswell, New Mexico.
According to the Mirror, Hillary Clinton simply wants to reveal what is happening at Area 51, either to prove that there is nothing there or to finally open up the secrets to the world.
"I'm going to do it again. There's a new name for UFOs. It's unexplained aerial phenomena. That's the new nomenclature. I would like us to go into those files and hopefully make as much of that as public as possible. If there's nothing there, let's tell people there's nothing there. If there is something there, unless it's a threat to national security, I think we ought to share it with the public."
The Huffington Post referred back to Bill Clinton's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel in 2014, when he was asked if he ever had the opportunity to take a look at the documents regarding Area 51. Although he did not admit to actually seeing any files, he did say that he was unsuccessful at confirming any Area 51 rumors. Still, he did make a statement regarding aliens visiting the Earth.
"If we were visited [by aliens] someday, I wouldn't be surprised. I just hope that it's not like [the movie] 'Independence Day,' that it's a conflict."
It is unknown whether former President Bill Clinton was able to gain any insight into Area 51 and the possibility of aliens or UFOs, knowledge that he may have passed on to Hillary as fuel to reopen the conversation and potentially gain more votes in the process. It may simply be a ploy to gather the votes from curious American citizens, only to end up at a dead end when or if the file contents are not able to be revealed -- if there even are files.
Stephen Bassett, the registered lobbyist on alien and UFO issues, believes that Hillary would not make such claims unless there is information to reveal, even if only hinted at by former President Bill Clinton. He feels that making the claim with no knowledge would be too foolish.
"The only circumstance under which a leading presidential candidate, her president husband and their common advisor would repeatedly speak to the ET issue during a campaign is when their collective brain is fully aware the ET presence is fact."
Area 51 has been a mystery since the supposed alien spacecraft crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. Stories surrounding the event have been changed over time, and the existence of the heavily-guarded base has been denied many times, further increasing curiosity about the area. Whether it is simply used for experimental aircraft testing, nuclear engineering of weapons, or is, in fact, home to alien life forms and their spacecraft, we may never know.
However, it seems as though Hillary Clinton will make it a priority to reveal the facts behind the famed military base known as Area 51 if she is elected as the next president of the United States.
