Dennis Kucinich and the UFO
from the December 2007 Star Beacon
NOTE: The following is a compilation of articles gathered from the
Internet that talk about Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich and
his daring remark during the October debates, that he did witness a

Dennis Kucinich, Bill Richardson and UFOs: The
‘Other’ Alien Question in the 2008 Presidential Election
latest book, Sage-Ing While Age-Ing, Shirley MacLaine recollects an
evening with Dennis Kucinich at her home in Graham, Wash., where she described
him having a UFO sighting. She writes: “Dennis found his encounter extremely
moving. The smell of roses drew him out to my balcony where, when he looked
up, he saw a gigantic triangular craft, silent, and observing him. It hovered,
soundless, for 10 minutes or so, and sped away with a speed he couldn’t
comprehend. He said he felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in
there was much media interest in MacLaine’s comments regarding Kucinich’s UFO
sighting. An Oct. 23 article in the Cleveland-based Plain Dealer describes how
repeated calls to Kucinich’s office for confirmation of MacLaine’s
recollection went unanswered.
was not surprising that in the Democratic Presidential debate on Oct. 30,
Kucinich was asked by the moderator, Tim Russert, about his sighting. Russert
first recounted MacLaine’s version of what Kucinich experienced, and then
asked whether he had seen a UFO. Kucinich’s clear affirmation to Russert’s
question confirmed her account. It suggested that the sighting was a deeply
moving and “directive” experience for him.
did not elaborate on the heartfelt connection with the UFO or the mental
directions he received. His comments about moving his campaign office to
Roswell, and comparing poll numbers of UFO believers with Bush’s popularity
rating was an awkward attempt to defuse an issue he wanted to evade for
obvious political reasons.
MacLaine’s recollection, however, suggests that Kucinich privately thinks very
seriously about the UFO issue, given its “hearts and minds” effect on him.
in September, after a conference discussing UFOs in the Washington, D.C.,
metro area, Kucinich staffer Natalie Laber was asked by Washington Post
reporter Dana Milbank about Kucinich’s knowledge of UFOs. She told him to
“keep your silly comments to yourself.” In his subsequent story, Milbank
referred to efforts to “out” Kucinich about his UFO beliefs.
So MacLaine has effectively “outed” Kucinich on the UFO issue, an issue that
poses considerable political challenges for him.
Democratic presidential candidate was asked about the UFO question in a
post-debate interview on MSNBC. Chris Matthews asked Bill Richardson whether
he believed in the existence of UFOs. Richardson said he hadn’t seen one and
that “there is no credible evidence” for them. However, he went on to claim
that the “Federal Government has not come clean at all on that issue, and it
incredulous Russert asked Richardson, “Did you say the United States
Government is covering up a history of the UFO sighting in your state?”
replied: “They (the government) don’t produce documents, Chris. They should
just get it all out, and there’s a known history about this.”
earlier town hall meeting in Round Rock, Texas, Richardson was asked whether
he would pledge to release files on the Roswell UFO crash. He responded: “I
remember I had my constituents ask me. I was the congressman and I said,
‘Well, Department of Defense, Los Alamos Labs, what is this? What is the data
you have?’ ”
said the official reply was: “Oh, it’s classified.” He said: “That ticked me
off.” So a series of jocular questions by Tim Russert and Chris Matthews to
Democratic candidates on UFOs has brought out into the Presidential election
the issue of the Government not disclosing all it knows about UFOs.
2002 Roper Poll showed approximately 70 percent of the American public believe
the “Government does not tell everything it knows about UFOs and
extraterrestrial life.” The most famous UFO incident was one that Richardson
referred to at the Round Rock meeting, and involved the Government withholding
documents. This was the famous Roswell incident, which gained worldwide
attention after a July 8, 1947 press release was issued by the Roswell Army
Air field, that a flying saucer had crashed. The story quickly died down after
more senior Army officials said that the crash debris was in fact a weather
interest was renewed in 1978, after the senior military intelligence officer
involved in investigating the incident, Major Jesse Marcel, claimed that the
crash involved a flying saucer after all. More recently, a posthumously
released affidavit by Walter Haut, the Public Information Officer at Roswell
responsible for releasing the initial flying saucer report, declared that the
crash involved extraterrestrial life forms and an advanced egg-shaped vehicle.
He claims he actually sighted the vehicle and bodies, and that the Pentagon
ordered a cover-up by issuing conflicting press releases.
UFO question poses considerable difficulties for any presidential candidate
desiring mainstream support, as evidenced by Kucinich’s and Richardson’s
jocular yet awkward responses to questions. There is nevertheless much
evidence that the Government knows much more than it’s telling the public.
Bill Richardson is now on the record that the US Government is withholding
important documents that will settle once and for all what actually happened
in the Roswell incident.
Dennis Kucinich is also on the record for having seen a UFO, and will in
future have to elaborate further on his experience and what it would mean if
he won the Presidency. Meanwhile, Shirley MacLaine, an avid believer in
extraterrestrial life, has demonstrated a remarkable propensity for Sage-Ing
is more commentary picked up off the Internet:
Tucker Carlson asks a good question:
Why isn’t Kucinich taken seriously?
Carlson, who hosts the MSNBC political show, “Tucker,” had a segment on (a
recent) show asking why Dennis Kucinich isn’t taken seriously, despite being
the only “true” Democrat in the field.
Brooks, a Los Angeles Times columnist, and A.B. Stoddard, who writes
for The Hill, both agreed that Kucinich stands for traditional
Democratic stances (union and workers’ rights, an economic platform that would
promote middle class America, Universal Health Care, etc.) but concluded that
his stances are seen as too far left in today’s middle-of-the-road world. They
also blamed the media for his “longshot” status, but did praise the ideas he
brings to the tables.
it that eight years of President Bush’s administration bringing the United
States of America’s government so far right that most of the world thinks
we’re fascists, and that bringing a real FDR-type Democrat to the White House
sounds like such a bad idea?
cannot even see much of a difference between Democrats and Republicans
anymore, and for the American Democracy to work that has to change. A
one-party system is bad for the people, and only good for corporate interests
(probably the “real” reason that Congressman Kucinich isn’t given much of a
chance in the 2008 race, according to corporate media).
the conclusion that pundits reached wasn’t exactly what I had hoped for when
the debate started on show, it was refreshing that pundits did agree that
Kucinich does, indeed, bring valid concerns to the 2008 election. Every day
that Kucinich is in the race is a day that Hillary Clinton and her host of
faux-Democrats will have to move their platforms farther left, and that helps
the average American more than you could possibly imagine. And, if the
improbable happens, and Kucinich is inaugurated in 2008, the entire world
would be a better place with his views on world peace, sustainable energy
sources, and workers’ rights that would turn the tables on the corporate world
and give average people a fighting chance for change.
Kucinich is already treated as a bit of an alien by the other Presidential
contenders; it only got worse at (the recent) forum, when interrogator Tim
Russert pushed him about Shirley MacLaine’s claim that he saw a UFO at her
home. A trapped Kucinich offered tersely, “I did.” But before he moves
campaign headquarters to Roswell, as he joked he would, the LA Times
points out that he’s not alone.
Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan admitted seeing UFOs, although it’s typically
an “issue used on politicians to make them look bad.” And Kucinich got
unlikely post-debate help from the governor whose state benefits from Roswell
tourism, as Bill Richardson urged the Government to “come clean” about the

1995 conference on UFOs and contact with alien civilizations that was
bankrolled by the late Laurence Rockefeller. The organizer, Dr. Scott Jones,
served on the National Security Council of Democratic President Jimmy Carter

chief of staff and aide John Podesta was quoted by the Las Vegas Journal as
saying, “I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained
in the dark on the question of government investigations of UFOs.” The
Washington Post quoted Clinton’s Press Secretary Mike McCurry as saying of
Podesta, “John can get totally maniacal and phobic on certain subjects. He’s
been known to pick up the phone and call the Air Force and ask them what’s
going on in Area 51.”
Bill and Hillary Clinton are also reportedly intrigued with the subject of
UFOs as were Presidents Carter and Reagan.
Governor of Georgia in 1973, Carter filed a UFO sighting report with the
International UFO Bureau, claiming he had seen a UFO in Leary, Georgia, in
Governor of California in 1974, Reagan related a UFO encounter with The Wall
Street Journal: “I was in a plane last week, when I looked out the window and
saw this white light. It was zigzagging around. I went up to the pilot and
said, ‘Have you seen anything like that before?’ He was shocked and said,
‘Nope.’ And I said to him: ‘Let’s follow it!’ We followed it for several
minutes. It was a bright white light. We followed it to Bakersfield, and all
of a sudden, to our utter amazement, it went straight up into the heavens.
When we got off the plane, I told Nancy all about it.’ ” The
pilot confirmed Reagan’s account.
president, Reagan said the following in a speech: “I’ve often wondered... what
if all of us in the world discovered that we were threatened by an outer — a
power from outer space, from another planet — wouldn’t we come together to
fight that particular threat?”
father of Republican conservatism, Senator Barry Goldwater, wrote in 1975:
“The subject of UFOs has interested me for some long time. About 10 or 12
years ago, I made an effort to find out what was in the building at
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, where the information has been stored that
has been collected by the Air Force, and I was understandably denied this
request. It is still classified above Top Secret.”

that the Government should release all documents concerning the alleged crash
