Stephen Bassett on
Free Energy and UFOs: New York Times Article (below), a
sober if somewhat low key article appeared in the New
York Times today focusing on Stephen Bassett and his
statements about the need for free energy to replace
coal and oil. The obvious choice is to utilize the power
used in UFO propulsion systems:
"...The government has in its possession
"extraterrestrial vehicles," lobbyist Stephen Bassett
said. As in flying saucers."
One of the newest energy lobbyists claims he has the answer to
climate change: spaceships.
The government has in its possession, "extraterrestrial vehicles,"
lobbyist Stephen Bassett said. "As in flying saucers."
"Imagine the power source," he said,
"behind a 30-foot wide saucer that
weighs the same as a tractor-trailer yet hurtles through galaxies at
20,000 miles per hour."
"What is the energy system operating that craft?" Bassett said. "They're not burning kerosene."
He added, "It eliminates oil. It eliminates coal. If it's as good as
we think it is, it transforms everything."
"No more ozone hole or melting polar ice caps," Bassett said.
price of electricity would drop to almost nothing."
Bassett believes this. Fervently.
He is working for free as a lobbyist, representing the Hawaii-based
Exopolitics Institute, an educational organization which describes
"dedicated to studying the key actors, institutions and
political processes associated with extraterrestrial life."
said he is less lobbyist and more political activist.
UFO phenomenon is real," Bassett said. "The
extraterrestrial presence is real."
Bassett's been lobbying about seven months, targeting the science
and technology, and defense and aviation angles.
He added energy to
his portfolio in a Senate filing last week.
He has spoken to lawmakers in the past, Bassett said, but he's
writing off lobbying Congress for now, calling the extraterrestrial
issue "the third rail" of politics.
Besides, he and other believers
have a bigger name on their list.
"Knowing that Congress could not act," Bassett said, "what we did
was focus on the executive branch, the White House."
Those who believe the truth is out there have been waiting for
someone like President
Obama to come clean about the government
hiding information on extraterrestrials, Bassett said.
"sensitive to the concerns of the military intelligence
community," Bassett said, plus he is popular worldwide, and he "has
the intelligence to handle it."
Bassett and fellow believers during the presidential campaign
launched the "Million Fax on Washington" and have been sending Obama
faxes and e-mails and leaving voice mail messages asking him to
admit that E.T. is real.
Documents should be released. There should
be congressional hearings. And that spaceship technology should be
made available to the public.
Odds that this will happen are improving, Bassett said. Obama has
friends backing a release of all information on extraterrestrials.
Those friends include
John Podesta, president and CEO of the
progressive Center for American Progress.
"John has been supportive of efforts by groups who have pushed for
government transparency," said John Neurohr, a Center for American
Progress spokesman. "But he has not talked with President Obama
about the issue."
One energy analyst said it is not surprising that among the great
diversity of energy lobbyists there is one who wants to expose a UFO
"I hope he's right. Wouldn't it be cool?" said Jerry Taylor, senior
fellow and energy analyst with the libertarian Cato Institute. "Good
luck to him. Hopefully, the magic energy machine will be coming our
