Too Much X-Files, Sen. Reid

1/17/17 Victory Girls Blog reports on Sen. Reid's getting the Pentagon to look for E.T.s:
Former Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) wants to protect the United States from . . . wait for it. . . aliens from outer space.
Both the New York Times and Politico just revealed on Saturday that Reid launched a program in 2007 to investigate Unidentified Flying Objects. You know, UFOs. Or Little Green Men, or ‘Greys,’ or whatever.
And they include Sen. Reid tweeting "The truth is out there. 🛸 "

12/16/17 Politico gives a frighteningly down-to-Earth explanation:
Reid initiated the program, which ultimately spent more than $20 million, through an earmark after he was persuaded in part by aerospace titan and hotel chain founder Bob Bigelow, a friend and fellow Nevadan who owns Bigelow Aerospace, a space technology company and government contractor. Bigelow, whose company received some of the research contracts, was also a regular contributor to Reid’s reelection campaigns, campaign finance records show, at least $10,000 from 1998 to 2008. Bigelow has spoken openly in recent years about his views that extraterrestrial visitors frequently travel to Earth. He also purchased the Skinwalker Ranch in Utah, the subject of intense interest among believers in UFOs. Reid and Bigelow did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

I went to a nuclear testing ground museum at Las vegas and was surprised that half of the place was devoted to UFOs and mythical aircraft operating out of Area 51. Now to hear that Bigelow, which I long suspected acquired early NASA research into inflatable structures and then took it as their own research, has been a supporter of UFO investigations, is disturbing. Worse is that Bigelow seems to have been a recipient of the money set aside for this Air Force investigation.

I remember Hillary stating that she would open up Area 51 and expose the secrets of that place if elected President. Now with this revelation regarding Reid and Bigelow I truly begin to wonder how crazy some of our elected officials (and corporate leaders) really are.

It's business as usual for Nevada's Harry Reid (the State Senator in the movie Casino is based on him). He funnels money in the form of classified contract to his friends.
