Barack Obama should respond to ET disclosure petition in Denver, says UFOlogist Jeff Peckman
Later this morning, President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak at the Auraria campus, with subjects expected to include student-loan reform. But former mayoral candidate Jeff Peckman, the man behind the failed ET affairs commission initiative, would like him to touch on something else -- a petition asked the government to formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.
Watching the sky.
The petition was created by the Paradigm Research Group as part of a White House program called We the People. As we noted in a post about a medical marijuana-related idea pushed by Fort Collins' Dean and Karen Beers, the site promises an official review and response to any petition that reaches a predetermined threshold within a prescribed period.
Like, for instance, the ET-disclosure petition, which states:
"We, the undersigned, strongly urge the President of the United States to formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and immediately release into the public domain all files from all agencies and military services relevant to this phenomenon."
The petition's signature goal was 5,000, and Peckman says that total was surpassed in four days. At present, it's been cyber-signed by 11,496 folks -- and given this success, Peckman wrote in an article on Examiner.com, Obama should keep his administration's word by personally tackling the matter at Auraria.
"Denver would be a great place to finally start dealing with this issue, because of the history here -- with my ballot initiative, with Colorado having a lot of UFO sightings, with the previous history he made at Invesco Field," where Obama accepted the Democratic nomination for president in 2008, "and with him signing his first big bill here" -- the $787 billion stimulus measure circa February 2009. "I think he could do a lot to inspire America, and inspire the world."
And that's not all. Peckman believes that disclosing extraterrestrial contact will lead to job creation, one of Obama's main themes these days. How?
