For many years people in the UFO community have talked about the day when the President of the United States finally stands up and says that UFOs are real. That is the day researchers believe when the cover-up will end and the world will all learn the truth about this modern day mystery.

Energy will be cheap and we can all drive big cars again.

Well the president has finally made the announcement that UFOs (and more specifically ETs) are real. Disclosure has finally taken place.

Dr. John Alexander was right when he wrote in his book “official disclosure has happened…President Reagan stated UFOs are real.” Yes he did Dr. Alexander. He certainly did.

The problem is that the announcement was made June 27, 1981 and no one paid attention. I doubt many more will after this article makes the rounds.

Reagan had actually let the cat out of the bag before 1981. Reagan, as many know, had at least two UFO sightings. The first sighting occurred on a night that Reagan was invited to a party that actor William Holden was hosting in Hollywood. A number of key personalities were invited. Two of those attending, comedian Steve Allen and actress Lucy Ball, both recounted the story of Reagan’s UFO encounter.[

Reagan was missing when the party began and the party was held up until he and Nancy arrived nearly an hour late. According to both Allen’s and Ball’s version of events Reagan was very excited. He described the fact that he and Nancy had seen a UFO while coming and stopped to watch the event. Lucy in her account of the event summed up her recollection of the event. It appeared in the biography  “Lucy in the Afternoon: An intimate Memoir of Lucille Ball”. “After he elected President," Ball said, "I kept thinking about that event, and wondered if he still would have won if he told everyone that he saw a flying saucer.”

Left out of the Ball biography is the bombshell part of the story. Lucille Ball would later relate that part of the story to fellow Hollywood actress Shirley MacLaine. It would confirm a rumor related to the story that had circulated for years regarding this sighting- a contact experience.

The only thing that varied in this telling of the story was the location of the party – Ball told MacLaine that it was at Helen and Armand Deutch’s house. (Armand had been a Hollywood producer and later member of Reagan’s kitchen cabinet. Helen and Armand were considered one of Ron and Nancy Reagan’s closest friends.)

According to Ball Reagan told her that the UFO landed and an alien emerged. It told Reagan to quit acting and take up politics. This revelation appeared in a British newspaper quoting MacLaine.[1]

The story of a United States president telling someone that he had talked to and taken advice from an alien is a big story, so I began to check the story. It turned out not to be a British tabloid gone wild but actually true. Shirley MacLaine had put most of the story in her 2007 book Sage-ing while Age-ing.

I and everyone else had missed it, probably because the media picked up on the story told in the book that Ohio congressman Dennis Kucinich had seen a UFO up close at Shirley’s house. They asked him the famous “Did you see a UFO” at the Philadelphia Presidential Democratic debate, and that ended his 2008 run for President.

MacLaine wrote the Ball account on page 142

Reagan had seen a craft when he was an actor, as he and Nancy were driving on Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles. Apparently the craft landed and an accupant descended, who then spoke to him telepathically. He never told me directly, but he did tell a party of people who were waiting for him at Helen and Armand Deutch’s house. Lucille Ball told me he had arrived ashen and confused, and told her the story. She told me because, as a Democrat, she wanted me to know that Ronnie must have been crazy…”

Now back to the official UFO/ET announcement.

The location of the announcement was the White House Theatre on the evening of June 27, 1981. Those in attendance included Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Conner, Astronauts Colonel Joseph Engle and Captain Richard Truly, NASA administrator James Beggs, former Deputy Director of the CIA Vernon Walters, Chief of Staff James Baker, Deputy Chief of Staff Michael Weaver, Assistant for Political Affairs Alexander Morgan Mason, British Ambassador to the United States Sir John Nicolas Henderson, Journalist and Founder of the National Review Ralph de Toledano, journalist Allen Ryskind, Chairman of the 1984 Olympics Peter Uberroth, journalist Martin Agronsky, journalist and screen writer William Dodson Broyles, Undersecretary of State for Security James Buckley, Joseph Canzeri who was working for the first lady, Lane Calhoon, Kathleen Carey, Robert Gubitosi, Jerald Pasternak, and singer Barbara Cook.

The event was screening of the movie “ET: The Extraterrestrial.” The movie, produced and directed by Steven Spielberg told the story of an alien that gets stranded on earth after his UFO craft leaves him behind. He hides out with a young boy while the government hunts for him and he tries to send a message to his home planet for rescue.

When the movie had ended Spielberg recounted what Reagan said to the audience assembled to watch the movie,

He just stood up and he looked around the room, almost like he was doing a headcount, and he said, “I wanted to thank you for bringing E.T. to the White House. We really enjoyed your movie,” and then he looked around the room and said, “And there are a number of people in this room who know that everything on that screen is absolutely true.”

And he said it without smiling! But he said that and everybody laughed, by the way. The whole room laughed because he presented it like a joke, but he wasn’t smiling as he said it.[2]

The story was similar to another story of an event that had occurred on the same evening. This story was told by another Hollywood producer Jamie Shandera who had been working on a film project with Spielberg in Japan. Shandera stated that Spielberg had told him that Reagan had made an even more revealing statement just before the film ended. Reagan leaned over and told Spielberg, “I bet there aren’t six people in this whole room that know how true this whole thing is.”[3]

A couple years back I was approached by Kina Merdinian, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Global Discoveries Network Foundation, who stated that in talking with a top Hollywood director (you I would know if I heard the name) that he had related being told the same story. I asked Kina if it was exactly the same wording of which she was not sure, so I sent her the “there aren’t six people in this whole room” story from my website to show to the director to see if the story was the same. Sometime later, Kina replied that she had shown the story to the director and yes it was the same story that Spielberg had told him.

So a United States president tells a fellow actress that he and his wife had contact with an alien and that the alien gave him direction in his life. Then he tells a room full of people that the whole ET thing is for real. What are we to make of this?

Some will say it’s true. Most of the media and the sceptics will say that Reagan was a bit crazy and shouldn’t be believed. That is the sad part and the rub in the story.

Everyone is waiting for the most influential and powerful person in the world – the president of the United States to say UFOs are for real. When he does he can still be written off as crazy like the North Dakota farmer who claims he saw a strange light one night.

Perhaps we need a new standard of what will cause disclosure if the words of the President don’t seem to do it. For 60+ years there have been stories that disclosure was about to happen. One of the best rumours of imminent disclosure occurred in the late eighties just before Ronald Reagan left office.

The rumour was the combination of two rumours that swirled in the UFO community 1) Reagan would disclose as a last act of his presidency 2) the United States government had an extraterrestrial guest (EBE3) being stored in a safe house near the Washington Mall in Washington.

The rumour that many talked about was that as his last act as President Reagan would appear on TV with the live alien.

Now that would bring disclosure. The media would race to cover the story. The scientists would admit their ignorance and arrogance and beg for forgiveness. The government would release all the files detailing their lies and misdeeds.

Well, thinking it over – maybe not.

[3]  As an odd side note to this story, the showing of E.T. was the last event on June 27th. The very next event for the President was the next morning, June 28th. It was a meeting that included President Reagan, James A. Baker 111, Chief of Staff; Edwin Meese 111, Counselor; and Michael K. Deaver, Deputy Chief of Staff. They met in the oval office.

From there the four men went to the highly secure White House Situation Room where Barack Obama would thirty years later tell Jayden Smith, son of actor Will Smith “"I can neither confirm or deny the existence of extra-terrestrials but I can tell you if there had been a top secret meeting it would have taken place in this room."

It was there that the President participated in a briefing of the U.S. Space Program. Participants included six members of the National Security Council or National Security Affairs and no one from NASA.
