I knew Dennis Kucinich was crazy but…I had no idea he was this crazy. So kudos to all Democrats who knew enough not to give him any support in the Democratic Primary.
The eternally loopy Shirley Maclaine in her new book “Sage-Ing While Age-Ing” writes of Kucinich’s close encounter, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.
“He had a close sighting over my home in Graham, Washington, when I lived there. 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 ten 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 his mind.”
WOW. That’s all I can say. Wow. Kucinich not only seeing a UFO but hearing directions.
Let me get this straight. Creatures from millions of miles away travel to Earth to see…Dennis Kucinich. I’m losing respect for aliens by the minute.

Now I understand why he abandoned his pro-life views!
It wasn’t a cynical, pathetic attemot to secure the Democratic presidential nomination…
He was just following orders from the Aliens!
Quick! Someone tell Mulder and Scully!

This article is perpetuating the falsehood that those that see UFOs are crazy. This is an extremely ignorant comment. In fact the more unexplainable the UFO sighting the more intelligent the witness is. That is the fact of the matter.
Plenty of people see triangular shaped UFOs. Many people have had experiences with mental communication related to strange encounters. The professional and intelligent people that have studied UFO for the last 6 decades will take this seriously. So should you!

This article is perpetuating the falsehood that those that see UFOs are crazy.
No, those who admit to having seen them are the real idiotic nuts. But crazier still are the people in NE Ohio who continue to elect this clownish midget.

Reagan saw UFOs several times. Here’s the first story:
Ronald Reagan’s daughter Patti Davis described her father as “fascinated with stories about unidentified flying objects and the possibility of life on other worlds.” She compared the “madness” of her father’s inauguration day to “a fifty’s movie in which flying saucers descend on the metropolis.”
Reagan may have gained this intense interest from sightings he had while he was Governor of California. Kitty Kelly in her Unauthorized Biography of Nancy Reagan stated Reagan admitted to believing in flying saucers, and “even swore that he had seen a few unidentified flying objects.”
Two of these Reagan UFO encounters have become public. The first sighting story was made public by Steve Allen on his WNEW-AM radio show in New York. Allen stated that a well know personality in the entertainment industry had confided a UFO story to him many years before. As the story had already made the rounds in the rumor mill, there was no question the comedian and host was referring to Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy.
Ron and Nancy were expected at a casual dinner party with friends in Hollywood. Except for the Reagans, all the guests had arrived. Ron and Nancy showed up a half hour later quite upset. They stated that they had seen a UFO coming down the coast.
Lucille Ball in her book “Lucy in the Afternoon” also described the event. In her account of the event she stated, “After he elected President, I kept thinking about that event, and wondered if he still would have won if he told everyone that he saw a flying saucer.”

Here’s the second Regan UFO story:
Norman C. Millar, then Washington Bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal, later the editor of the Los Angeles Times. Reagan told Millar:
“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 of Governor Reagan plane was Bill Paynter, and he backed up Reagan’s version of the incident with the UFO.
I was the pilot of the plane when we saw the UFO. Also, on board were Governor Reagan and a couple of his security people. We were flying a Cessna Citation. It was maybe nine or ten o’clock at night. We were near Bakersfield when Governor Reagan and the others called my attention to a big light flying a bit behind the plane.
It appeared to be several hundred yards away. It was a fairly steady light until it began to accelerate, then it appeared to elongate. The light took off. It went up at a 45-degree angle – at a high rate of speed. Everyone on the plane was surprised.
Governor Reagan expressed amazement. I told the others I didn’t know what it was. The UFO went from a normal cruise speed to a fantastic speed instantly. If you give an airplane power it will accelerate – but not like a hotrod, and that is what this was like.
We didn’t file a report on the object because for a long time they considered you a nut if you saw a UFO.
Paynter added the UFO incident didn’t stop there. He stated that he and Reagan had discussed their UFO sighting “from time to time” in the years following the incident.
Reagan, in his discussion of the sighting with Norman C. Miller added that he had told Nancy about the UFO he had seen, and they had done personal research on UFOs. This research had uncovered the facts that there were references to UFOs in Egyptian hieroglyphics. Reagan was telling his story in a very animated way. This led Miller to conclude that Reagan seriously believed in UFOs. He asked him, “Governor, are you telling me that you saw a UFO?”
Suddenly, according to Miller, Reagan realized that he was talking to a reporter. “This look crossed his face,” recalled Miller, “and he said let’s just say that I’m an agnostic.”

Here’s the story of Jimmy Carter’s UFO sighting:
As previously mentioned, Jimmy Carter is one of two U.S. Presidents who have reported seeing a UFO before becoming the President….
Carter’s UFO sighting began shortly after dark on a windless night. Jimmy Carter was standing outside the Lion’s Club in Leary, Georgia, waiting for a meeting to start. Suddenly, he and ten or more witnesses, sighted a red and green orb radiating in the western sky. Carter described an object that “it seemed to move towards us from a distance, stop, move partially away, return, then depart. Bluish at first; then reddish – luminous – not solid.”
“At times,” reported Carter, “it was as bright as the moon, and about as big as the moon – maybe a bit smaller. The object was luminous; not solid.”
In an interview with the Atlanta Constitution, Carter described the moving nature of the event. He described the sighting as a “very remarkable sight.” This is an important event, because many of the skeptical investigations done on the Carter sighting, have tried to paint the event as a ho-hum occurrence. None of the descriptions Carter has made of the event have ever described it as ho-hum.
Jimmy Carter’s mother Lillian also confirmed that Carter had been very impressed by what he had seen. “The UFO made a huge impression on Jimmy,” she stated. “He told me about the sighting many times. He’s always been a down-to-earth no-nonsense boy, and the sighting by him, as far as I am concerned, is as firm as money in the bank.”
Carter had, in fact, described the UFO sighting many times in the years since it occurred. In every instance, including the latest known telling of the story at Emory University in 1997, Carter has never backed off on the spectacular nature of the event. He has also never conceded that was he saw was some misidentification of a natural phenomena.
Carter estimated that the object was three hundred to one thousand yards away. He estimated that the event had lasted 10 minutes. Then the object disappeared. Carter was so impressed by what he had seen, he recorded his impressions of the event on a tape recorder at the time.
And here’s the link to his official signed report:
