28. If you're trying to prove Bigelow's a kook, that's a poor way of going about it

Most Americans believe in an afterlife. Eighty-one per cent. See study at Barna.

You could ridicule him for his beliefs in UFOs and get more traction.

Only one problem: you'd also have to throw in Senator Schumer and the late former Senator Harry Reid, too. There's actually a fairly good sized contingent of legislators who want to see if our government is spending money on reverse engineering of UFOs. This is from The Hill and the discussion is going on right now (the link on this story is today, Jan 30, 2024):

snip

In July, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced extraordinary bipartisan legislation alleging that surreptitious government “legacy programs” are attempting to reverse-engineer exotic UFOs of “non-human” origin.

In stark contrast to Kirkpatrick’s claim that a “small group” is driving recent UFO-related developments, Schumer stated that a “vast web” of UFO whistleblowers and witnesses informed the eyebrow-raising legislation. Moreover, in remarkable comments on the Senate floor, Schumer cited “multiple credible sources” to allege that elements of the U.S. government have illegally withheld UFO-related information from Congress.

Far from holding an irrational “religious belief” in UFOs, as Kirkpatrick seems to suggest, key members of Congress are dead-set on forcing government transparency on a decades-long mystery. They should be commended and encouraged, not mocked as “true believers.”

I believe I know why Bigelow gave trump the million (it was for legal fees. Bigelow was a DeSantis advocate). It would be concerns over the Israel/Gaza situation. With Biden's latest accomplishments in that area, Bigelow might not have given trump that money; the article notes he gave it a while back.

To understand why he thinks this, you'd have to watch this documentary, available on FreeVee via Amazon Prime: "And Did They Listen?"

p.s. I know you won't watch, but others might. If anyone does watch, keep your ears open for what will happen if the US attacks Iran.
