A Miami congressional candidate has claimed that she’s been abducted by aliens, and she’s kept in touch with them since. In two Spanish-language videos unearthed by The Miami Herald, Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera recounts her experiences with extraterrestrial life.
Aguilera claimed that when she was seven, three large, blonde aliens, two female and one male, made contact with her, and have communicated with her telepathically since then. She said the aliens reminded her of the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro; a stately figure with arms outstretched. Aguilera said the aliens took her inside their spaceship, although it’s unclear whether the spacecraft left Earth.
The aliens apparently gave Aguilera a wealth of information. Acording to her, they said that the world’s “energy center” is in Africa, and that there are 30,000 alien skulls buried on the island of Malta, in the Mediterranean.
The videos were uploaded in 2009 and 2011, and when The Miami Herald reached out for an update on Aguilera’s extraterrestrial beliefs, she chose to be a bit more vague, telling The Herald:
For years people, including Presidents like Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter and astronauts have publicly claimed to have seen unidentified flying objects and scientists like Stephen Hawking and institutions like the Vatican have stated that there are billions of galaxies in the universe and we are probably not alone. I personally am a Christian and have a strong belief in God, I join the majority of Americans who believe that there must be intelligent life in the billions of planets and galaxies in the universe.
It’s possible that Aguilera’s PR team has advised her against making public statements about the existence of extraterrestrial blonde beings. Still, she’s definitely not the first politician to believe the truth is out there. John Podesta, a former adviser to President Barack Obama and most recently Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair, has long been an alien enthusiast. In a 1998 Washington Post interview with Mike McCurry, the former Press Secretary had this to say about Podesta, who also worked for the Clinton administration at the time: “John can get totally maniacal and phobic on certain subjects,” McCurry said. “He’s been known to pick up the phone to call the Air Force and ask them what’s going on in Area 51.”
Podesta has been a tireless advocate for the government disclosure on files pertaining to UFOs and alien life. Just last week, he tweeted an endorsement of Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge’s To The Stars Academy, a consortium concerned with space research — including extraterrestrial life.
A former council member in Doral, Florida, Aguilera is running to replace retiring Miami Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. Podesta made it into the White House, a few times. Maybe Aguilera shouldn’t be too worried about disclosing her alien interactions.
Either way, Tom DeLonge might want to give her a call.
