Even US President's advisor can't make headway

CHENNAI: The six burglars who were arrested for the Watergate break-in were former CIA operatives. Reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein,though young and limited in experience but unlimited in perseverance, with the help of an FBI insider (Deep Throat), exposed the Watergate scandal which led to the resignation of President Nixon.
The oil industry’s total net worth is around $ 45 trillion. If one reads Daniel Yergin’s 1992 Pulitzer Prize winning book The Prize: The Epic Quest Oil, Money and Power, one will understand the extraordinary power and influence of the oil industry on global politics. In America it has a symbiotic relationship with the arms industry. Citing protection of Middle-Eastern oil fields and international shipping lanes, the American government spends around $650 billion on defence which is more than the combined defence budgets of the next nine countries. UFOs hold the key to developing ‘new energy technologies’ which will ultimately get rid of our dependence on oil, which also means you can no longer use the Middle East as an excuse to amass weapons.
If you are a Texan oil baron, or a shareholder in arms manufacturer Lockheed Martin, you will stop the truth from coming out using your extraordinary leverage on American mainstream media and politics, which was further enhanced by the 2010 Citizens United Vs Federal Election Commission verdict, where the US Supreme Court declared that corporations had no limitations in funding political campaigns. America, which was already de facto oligarch now became de jure.
But one government official is fighting this. His name is John Podesta, former chief of staff to President Clinton (1998-2001) and later legal counsel to President Obama. At present, he is the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton.
In 2002 at a news conference organised by the Coalition for Freedom of Information, which he co-founded, he said, “I think it’s time to open the books about questions that have remained in the dark, questions of government investigations of UFOs.”
“It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it because its 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.”
On February 13, 2014 his last day in office as legal counsel to President Obama, John Podesta tweeted from his official White House handle: Finally my biggest failure of 2014, once again not securing the disclosure of UFO files.
Podesta’s admission came while he was discussing initiatives related to his official responsibility of overseeing climate change and energy policy for the White House. Podesta uses the words ‘once again’ in his tweet because previously he tried it during Clinton’s administration but failed.
Instead of probing into the extraordinary nature of his revelation and ask some serious questions like who or what government entity is preventing Podesta from gaining access to information while doing his official duties, the American mainstream media treated it as some kind of joke. They refused to show the same passion with which they went into the minute details concerning Monica Lewinski’s under garments as if the very existence of America depended on it. But in the case of Podesta the very existence of the planet does depend on finding the answers to his tweet, because any UFO related information does have relevance to climate change and energy policy. UFOs don’t run on fossil fuels or chemicals like liquid hydrogen and oxygen. They use energy sources and technologies far more advanced than anything offered by the fossil fuel industry, which when released will put an end to our oil addiction and save our world.
The million dollar question here is if the senior legal advisor of a sitting President can’t access UFO related information relevant to energy policies being developed, then who is the real power behind the throne?
To understand that power, we must travel back to September 1947 when President Harry Truman convened a meeting of 12 men, a meeting that changed the very course of human history…
