Seventy years later, some continue to demand...

...that the authorities tell us the truth...

In mid-1947, a United States Air Force balloon crashed at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico.[1] Following wide initial interest in the crashed "flying disc", the US military stated that it was merely a conventional weather balloon.[2] Interest subsequently waned until the late 1970s, when ufologists began promoting a variety of increasingly elaborate conspiracy theories, claiming that one or more alien spacecraft had crash-landed, and that the extraterrestrial occupants had been recovered by the military, who then engaged in a cover-up.

In the 1990s, the US military published two reports disclosing the true nature of the crashed object: a nuclear test surveillance balloon from Project Mogul. Nevertheless, the Roswell incident continues to be of interest in popular media, and conspiracy theories surrounding the event persist. Roswell has been described as "the world's most famous, most exhaustively investigated, and most thoroughly debunked UFO claim".[3]

Plenty of folks have made money based on this hoax.

We elected a president with a huge net worth*.  Of course, he's far from perfect.  Can't recall any that were, can you?

Still, it's absolutely impossible for anyone with an ounce of sense to actually believe he'd use the office for personal monetary gain.

It's something that's so ding-dang-diddly illogical, I can't believe even the dumbest media personality - and it's nearly impossible to determine which idiot deserves that title - actually believes what they're spouting.

Instead of using our FBI agents to investigate and track nutcases like Hodgkinson, we've got them chasing their tails in an attempt to find that "Russia link"...

Who will profit from this one?

*3.5 billion dollars
