Joe Biden and UFOs
"C'mon man! The thing about the things in, you know, the sky...c'mon man."


President Joe Biden held a joint news conference on May 21 with visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in. It was broadcast live on many major and cable networks. At about 6:40 PM EST, FOX TV News reporter Peter Doocy asked Biden a question of a very different nature, and caught the President clearly off-guard. Doocy asked of Biden: "President Obama says there is footage and records of objects in the sky -- these unidentified aerial phenomena -- and he says we don't know exactly what they are. What do you think?" President Biden replied: "I think that you should ask President Obama again!" Biden, with a confused look, then quickly turned away from the podium while throwing off his translator earpiece as he ran off, abruptly ending the news conference!


You can view the thirty-four second exchange here:


If one looks very closely at the President's demeanor when asked the question, he shows surprise but tries hard not to flinch. His reply was a definite dodge -- President Biden's reaction was to be completely evasive in answering the question. It was a polite way of saying 'no comment'. The public reaction to disclosure is a matter that has yet to be assessed, so why would he comment? President Biden also directed the answer to his colleague, former President Barack Obama, who has already said some things...certainly (and curiously) more than he did when he was President.


We can of course infer reasonably that if Obama takes the issue seriously, then so too does Biden.


He is also no doubt aware of the Pentagon UFO report to be generated soon, promised to detail what is known about the phenomena. Not wanting to speak of such things before the report is released, may have been why Biden wanted to dismiss the question.


But there are other reasons to believe that Biden is well versed on matters related to UFOs.


Biden's very close friends and professional associates of many years include former Senator and Speaker of the House, Harry Reid; former President Clinton's Chief of Staff and Hillary Clinton's Campaign Manager, John Podesta; and former New Mexico Governor and Secretary of the Department of Energy, Bill Richardson.


All three of these individuals have an abiding interest in the phenomena, and perhaps more than any other politicians in history, have commented publicly and extensively on the seriousness of the UFO issue. It is inconceivable that Joe Biden has not also discussed these very matters with these men, particularly as it may relate to national security and the intrusion of US airspace. In this case, we can make inferences based on "the company you keep".

It was of course Senator Reid who helped authorize a previously covert Pentagon UFO study program called Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, or AATIP. He has a long-time association with Robert Bigelow, the aerospace pioneer believed to have been involved in the storage of UFO debris, as reported by The New York Times a few years ago. Reid's numerous recent comments in retirement about the subject leave no doubt that he has been privileged with information about the phenomena that remains highly classified. Harry Reid has been close to Joe Biden for nearly thirty years, collaborating with him on numerous legislative initiatives. Biden was of course Vice President of the United States under Obama during several years of the AATIP UFO study program championed by Reid.

John Podesta and Biden


In 2002 and 2003, Mr. Podesta called for the release of UFO documents in government files. In 2010, he reiterated this theme in a foreword to the book UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record by Leslie Kean. He was featured in the 2011 documentary Secret Access: UFOs on the Record. In 2015, Mr. Podesta also issued provocative Twitter messages well-covered by national and international media. More recently, Podesta's emails to Tom DeLonge, head of the UFO research group To the Stars Academy were leaked. Podesta and Biden have been personal friends and political associates for over a quarter century.

In June of 2004, Richardson wrote the Introduction to The Roswell Dig Diaries by Tom Carey and Don Schmitt. Richardson wrote that "The mystery surrounding the Roswell crash has never been adequately explained... we need to get to the bottom of something that has perplexed millions... for more than 57 years. Clearly, it would help everyone if the US government disclosed everything it knows." According to a 2007 AP story when Richardson was asked by a Dell Computer, TX employee about Roswell, Richardson said, "When I was in Congress, I said to the Department of Defense and Los Alamos, "What is the data, what is the data you have?" He was told the records were "classified". Richardson has known Biden well and worked with him since the 1990s, and he endorsed Biden for President in 2020.



A July 2020 piece appeared -- months before the election -- on the website by columnist Bryce Zabel. It was prescient. In it, Zabel writes an Open Letter to Biden who was at the time campaigning for the presidency: "You need a policy about how you are going to deal with UFOs. In fact, you'll have to decide if you're even going to call them that, or whether you'll use UAP, the new acronym that indicates Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. The questions are waiting for you now, and you'll get them in a virtual town hall, a news conference or even a presidential debate." Zabel then predicted correctly, "You are going to be asked about this, and soon, and you better not make a joke about it and talk about little green men. That won't work anymore. The issue has gotten very serious very quickly."


Mr. President, such a chuckle and shrug will no longer do. And the issue is clearly one of national security. The released films of aircraft from elsewhere of astounding capability show that they tease our own aircraft -- but it is no joke.
