Since there is no such thing as a ‘flux capacitor,’ that can’t be a ‘flux capacitor’

“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,” the Obama administration said in a Nov. 4 statement.


“In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye. The fact is we have no credible evidence of extraterrestrial presence here on Earth,” according to the statement posted to the White House website and attributed to Phil Larson, research assistant at the Office of Science and Technology Policy.

So Americans are expected to believe a government that proudly wears “cover-up” as its middle name isn’t covering anything up … because they say so?

The statement “is the first time since this issue exploded in the public’s mindset in 1947 that the executive branch has issued a formal position in writing on this issue,” says Stephen Bassett, a physicist, researcher and Washington lobbyist who contends the government has long covered up the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects.

Does this mean it’s finally time to pack their tents and head home for those who believe there’s an ongoing struggle for control of the earth between the relatively benign gray aliens and the larger, red variety who shelter inside the hollow earth?

Does this mean the end of the line for the Little A’Le’Inn in peaceful Rachel, which has built a tourist trade from fans driving Route 375 — The Extraterrestrial Highway — looking for UFO activity in the town 25 miles northeast of the non-existent Area 51 military base?

Will there not even be any more “X Files” re-runs?

“Of course not,” says Bassett, who predictably predicts the White House disclosure will give him and others fresh opportunities to challenge government officials and pry out the real truth.

Nor are they buying it in little Rachel.

“The president is living proof that there’s life outside Earth,” says Sharon Taylor, a waitress at the Little A’Le’Inn, finally settling that pesky “birth certificate” mystery. (Hint: Grover’s Mill, N.J.)

Turns out there’s actually a reason for the Nov. 4 statement. President Barack Obama had promised that petitions gaining at least 5,000 signatures within 30 days would get a response. One, organized by Bassett and demanding the government “formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race,” had accumulated 12,078 signatures as of Nov. 7.

(Of all the promises he’s made, he chooses to keep THIS one?)

Predictably, the threshold for an official petition response has since been bumped up to 25,000 signers. (Do we hear 100,000?)

I always preferred the answer of the late Isaac Asimov. Asked if he believed in UFOs, he would respond, “Of course. I also believe in UCOs. Until I get close enough to figure out what kind of bug it is, it’s an Unidentified Crawling Object.”

I could reveal the location of the captured Gray Alien scientists — who aren’t dead at all, of course. But pretty soon there’d be FOIA requests for the oscillation fusion overthrusters they’ve designed, allowing motor vehicles to run indefinitely on water and banana peels. Then someone would probably think to ask if I know where Elvis and Jesse Garon are hiding out, and where would our whole carbon-based economy be, then?

Hey, Mr. Spaceman,
Won’t you please take me along,
I won’t do anything wrong.
Hey, Mr. Spaceman,
Won’t you please take me along for a ride?

    Hi Vin! I follow Mike Shedlock’s advice with respect to official government denials, and that is: Never Believe Anything Until It’s Officially Denied

  2. Steve Says:

    Vin’s sense of humor is not to be denied!

    I look for those UGO’s you know the unidentified growing objects I pull from from my garden!

    Given the available evidence, one would be pretty foolish to aver with absolute certainty that it exists on or inside our planet either.

  4. Bruce Says:

    Cory!!! You’re comment is awesome, I’m stealing it! Clearly, we can not know that something “does not exist” we can only know if something does, and then only if it’s in the realm of our own experience or taken on word of someone we respect and trust. For me, that hasn’t mean governments word for a long, long time.

    I would remind everyone that some parts the government still deny the existence of area 51
