Cue The X Files theme song: Apparently Eisenhower really was "in" with the extraterrestrial crowd. So says a surprisingly credible source. Seriously!
Former government consultant and noted academic Timothy Good says that in 1954, "President Eisenhower had three encounters, set up meetings with aliens, which took place at certain Air Force bases including Holloman Air Force base in New Mexico."
Hang on, Scully -- there's more.
In 2010, retired New Hampshire state representative Henry McElroy, Jr. came forward to talk about his own accidental viewing of a top-secret brief meant for Eisenhower's eyes. And do you know what the document claimed?
McElroy says the document contained information about the existence of aliens in America and the possibility of Eisenhower meeting with the creatures.
Whoa. It doesn't take much to connect the cosmic dots here. Particularly if you're a conspiracy theorist.
Look, I'll be honest: I've always been more into vampires/zombies/ghosts than aliens ... but after clicking my way through a bunch of those conspiracy theorist-ish websites?
Just call me Mulder.

I know, I know -- there's no proof, blah blah blah. (A conspiracy theorist would say that's because the government covered it up!) But let's just pretend the following theories are true:
Eisenhower's first meeting was with a blond, human-like type of alien known as the Nordics. They warned the president about aliens (not Nordics) orbiting the equator who were hostile beings from Orion. They also asked us to dismantle and destroy our nuclear weapons, stop killing each other, and stop polluting the earth. President Eisenhower refused. (Clearly!)
Eisenhower's next meeting was with the Alien Greys -- a.k.a. the "hostile aliens" the Nordics warned us about. Having completed their orbit of the equator, they came to ask the government for help: Their planet was dying, they said, and they "needed quarters on earth to conduct genetic experiments that might allow their race to survive." In return, the Alien Greys offered us their "advanced technology." Trade you all the humans you can abduct for unlimited tech support!
Guess what? Eisenhower signed the treaty.
Yikes! Okay, I'm freaking myself out now. Gotta stop conspiracy theory-ing or I'll never get any sleep. But seriously ... it all kind of makes sense, doesn't it??
Do you think there's any truth to the stories about Eisenhower meeting with aliens?
