The far left-wing of the Democratic Party may have some ideas that seem alien to many of us, however, 2020 Democratic hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders has vowed he will reveal the truth about aliens and UFOs, if he is elected president.
In an recent interview on the “Joe Rogan Experience,” Sanders was pressed about whether he would be open with the public about extraterrestrial knowledge if he takes the White House.
“If you got into the office and you found out something about aliens, if you found out something about UFOs, would you let us know?” Rogan asked Sanders, who is seeking the Democratic nomination to take on President Trump in 2020.
“Well I tell you, my wife would demand that I let you know,” Sanders laughingly replied.
“Is your wife a UFO nut?” Rogan asked in response.
“No, she’s not a UFO nut. She goes, ‘Bernie, what is going on, do you know? Do you have any access?’ ” Sanders said.
“And you don’t have any access?” Rogan asked.
“I don’t,” Sanders laughed. “Honestly, I don’t.”
“You’ll let us know though?” Rogan asked.
“Alright, I’ll be on the show, we’ll announce it on the show. How’s that?” Sanders said.
The interview comes as UFOs and the idea of aliens has become an increasingly popular topic online in recent months thanks to the launch of a satirical Facebook event, titled “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” earlier this summer.
Increased Interest In UFOs
While the “Storming of Area 51” turned out to be a hoax, the government has been taking a more serious look at UFO sightings of late. As reported by Fox News, and in these pages the Defense Department reportedly briefed Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., in June, along with two other senators as part of what appeared to be heightened efforts to inform politicians about naval encounters with unidentified aircraft.
Warner’s spokesperson indicated that the senator sought to probe safety concerns surrounding “unexplained interference” naval pilots faced. Soon after, Politico reported more briefings were being requested as news surfaced that the Navy revised its procedures for personnel reporting on unusual aircraft sightings.
As part of a program investigating the issue, Navy personnel reportedly told Pentagon officials that they encountered aircraft that appeared to defy the laws of physics and aerodynamics while in military airspace.
President Trump has said that he doesn’t believe UFOs exist but is open to the idea. “Well, I don’t want to really get into it too much. But personally, I tend to doubt it,” he previously told Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “I’m not a believer, but you know, I guess anything is possible.”
