A proposed White House Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission is ‘in’ while Denver’s is ‘out’ – for now.


As author of the "Denver UFO Examiner initiative" and this column, I put it on hold because of growing confidence in the ‘pro-transparency’ Obama administration and his ‘pro-UFO disclosure’ cabinet members and staff. I proposed the new White House commission and applied last November to be its project coordinator. A few others in Colorado, Utah and Arizona have applied for other related positions.

Around 21% of Americans voted to elect Barack Obama as President. Polls in recent years show that three to four times that many Americans believe that the U.S. government has covered up secret files concealing evidence of extraterrestrial visitors to our planet.


Testimony from hundreds of credible Disclosure Project whistleblowers support the claim that these secret ‘UFO’ files contain potentially trillions of dollars worth of critical solutions for clean energy, economic growth, job-creation, national security, and reduction of government waste.

  • What is the chance that in 2009 the ‘government’ will disclose evidence of extraterrestrial UFOs and visitors? It is 100%.

  • Why? Because “We the People” are the government and most of us want this information disclosed.

People who think the 'government' won't disclose the UFO 'X-File' have simply forgotten their legal rights and self-governing role.

President Obama is the highest elected public servant, but he is still a servant, and not the master of our destiny. So if he does not reverse the 60-year old campaign of secrecy, denial and dis-information about these ‘X-Files’, then ‘We the People’ are capable of doing it ourselves. And we can do it with evidence that even the federal government does not have. This can be done through strategic efforts like the Denver UFO Examiner ballot initiative EXTRA Campaign.

However, it would be far more effective and valuable if the White House and concerned citizens achieve this historic and globally transforming disclosure together in an cooperative and mutually respectful manner. It would be consistent with the ideals and promises or our new President and the character of this new time under his visionary leadership. It would also be in line with his Citizen’s Briefing Book of ideas.

Stephen Bassett of the Paradigm Research Group discovered that disclosure of UFO ‘X-files’ was very popular among ideas submitted to the Citizen's Briefing Book set up at the Presidential Transition web site,


Bassett said in a January 22 press release that,

“Of the 44,000 submissions, 23 submissions were related to ending the government-imposed UFO/ET Truth Embargo. They received a combined total of 177,210 votes with over 3,200 comments. Based upon voting support, six of the UFO/ET Disclosure related ideas were in the top 101 out of 44,000 submitted.”

President Obama’s White House transition co-manager John Podesta has stated publicly,

"I think it's time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark on the question of government investigations of UFO's. It's time to find out what the truth really is that's out there. We ought to do it really because it's right. We ought to do it because the American people, quite frankly, can handle the truth. And we ought to do it because it's the law."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a major advocate for UFO disclosure during her husband’s presidency, now holds some of the keys to unlock the door to the UFO ‘X-Files.

President Obama emphasized that his Administration,

“is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.”

In a press conference announcing his Memoranda on his first full day of office he also stated:

“For a long time now, there's been too much secrecy in this city. The old rules said that if there was a defensible argument for not disclosing something to the American people, then it should not be disclosed. That era is now over. Starting today, every agency and department should know that this administration stands on the side not of those who seek to withhold information but those who seek to make it known.”

The winds of ‘change’ are blowing strongly in the direction of disclosure. Harnessing this wind will power a wide range of benefits for President Obama and the rest of humanity.


Anyone interested in working for the proposed White House Commission on Extraterrestrial Affairs will soon be able to apply at the new White House web site but it might require specifying the proposed new commission in the job application.
