In these past few weeks, hope has been revived in the UFO community that the United States government needs to finally pony up for their knowledge of extraterrestrial life and their visit to our planet. Those who have seen too many films (and by us, I mean them) will nervously wonder if the government has the right tone to approach La Close Encounter of the Thirdkind for the first time.
But, alas, our ‘top-notch’ military and fearless Commander in Chief seems to have shot down three car dealership balloons, or maybe he gifted teenagers drones from Christmas, or better yet…weather balloons.

Although this possible possibility is very disappointing, although predictable, I have found it to be an honor for one of my favorite holidays; It’s fun to recall some of the best UFO hits in presidential history.
So find your tin foil hat, grab those binoculars and get ready for things to get a little weird, as most things related to aliens tend to get. Say hi to the boss, and let’s get this space party started.
Founding Fathers and UFOs
UFOs have been rumored to visit our greatest leaders since the original and my personal favorite president, George Washington. Many UFO enthusiasts debate the validity of the story that Georgie was visited by UFOs and aliens one fateful night at Valley Forge.
He points to the story that George Washington was visited by an angel that night and prophesied what a great nation we would become. Apparently, this angel skipped the part about reality television and avocado toast.

The argument is that this angel is actually a time traveling alien. But, unfortunately, this story is based on a story.
George Washington didn’t claim to have been visited by an angel, but it makes for some wonderful historical romanticism. But let’s not forget, good ole George wasn’t the only Founding Father associated with UFOs.
One of my other favorites of all time was the interest in extraterrestrial visitors. When Thomas Jefferson was vice president, he described a close encounter he knew in Volume 6 of the Transactions of the American Philosophical Society.
This article is a description of a singular phenomenon observed in Baton Rouge by William Dunbar. Esq.’ The incident told of a giant floating orb the size of a house hovering over poor Willie Dunbar’s barn.
Too bad Jefferson didn’t have Sidewinder missiles then.

UFOs or weather balloons?
Fast forward to the Roswell incident of 1947, arguably the most significant UFO incident in American history. This is easily one of my favorite UFO stories; Legend has it that a flying saucer crashed in Roswell, New Mexico.
In fact, the USAAF (United States Army Air Forces) issued a statement that a saucer had been recovered, only to return it strangely saying it was a weather balloon. Good to know that DOD has kept its communication strategies the same.
A year later, President Harry Truman ordered his aide Robert B. Landry pointed out to him. Now that’s interesting and frustrating at the same time.
If UFOs exist, don’t they have inherently threatening strategic implications? But, then again, maybe I’ve seen too many movies. Yet, in general, it is my expert experience that foreigners are always bad news.
I mean, don’t you think aliens resemble a tiny nugget of ET? They certainly take on a more gruesome and terrifying flavor, like the Xenomorphs from Alien.
While I’m a pretty tough cookie, I’m no Ellen Ripley.

Two presidents in modern history claimed to have actually seen a UFO. First up is none other than Peanut Headed Jimmy Carter.
That’s right; He told Larry King that he and 25 other young men experienced a UFO encounter one night on campus when he was young. He described it as “a strange light coming towards us, a round light”.
Carter went on to say, “It got closer and closer and stopped right over the pine trees and then it started changing colors to blue, red, white. Then it stayed there for a while. We were all stunned.”
Oh my! You don’t hear much about this story when people remember Jimmy Carter. But it doesn’t end there.
Another favorite president of mine, Ronald Reagan, saw what he described as “a big light flying just behind the plane” in 1974 while flying to Bakersfield. But alas, no revelation yet.

President’s Comments on Knowledge of Aliens
Perhaps the most inveterate interrogator of presidential UFO knowledge is none other than funnyman Jimmy Kimmel. On his show, he asked each incoming president if they knew anything about aliens.
When asked by President George W. Bush, he said, “I’m not telling you nuthin.” Good for your George; You bury that secret deep inside and don’t share it with a late-night hack.
When President Bill Clinton was asked if he would tell the American people if aliens existed, he said yes. As we can believe it; Come on now, he’s not called Slick Willie.
When he asked the lord and savior of the left, President Barack Obama, he gave a naturally inflated response. “Foreigners do not allow disclosure, you reveal all their secrets and they have strict control over us. I cannot disclose anything. “
Here we are today, if you take reports at face value, our geriatric president is shooting down benign balloons and letting Chinese spy balloons roam the nation.
If aliens ever visit, I hope they warm to me and take me in because they must have better sense than some of the jokers behind the wheel here.
