• Out there: Former Sen. Mike Gravel says White House suppressing evidence of ETs

    Top Line

    Even as most Americans wonder what planet politicians are from, is it possible that the government is squelching evidence of extraterrestrials visiting Earth? One former presidential hopeful says yes – and that the conspiracy goes all the way to the top.

    Former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) says the White House has helped keep the truth about the “extraterrestrial influence that is investigating our planet” from the public.

    “It goes right to the White House, and of course, once the White House takes a position, ‘well there's nothing going on’...it just goes down the chain of command, everyone stands toe,” Gravel tells Top Line.

    Gravel is one of six former congress representatives who were paid $20,000 by the UFO advocacy group Paradigm Research to participate in a Congressional-style Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington this week, where witness after witness has presented first-hand accounts of UFO sightings and extraterrestrial visits.

  • Last week intelligence officials assessed “with varying degrees of confidence” that chemical weapons had been used in the country—a possible game changer because those actions crossed President Obama’s red line. A lot of questions came in on Yahoo! answers this week about potential action by the United States: What would it look like? What would we do in the region?

    Problem Solved asked: Why are we intervening? If we do intervene, what will we do?

    And Jordan inquired: Why do we feel like we have to intervene in all of these conflicts? All of our supposed "allies" lie low and stay in the weeds until the coast is clear.

    Thank you for all of your great questions, and please keep them coming on Yahoo! answers. You can also write to me on Twitter and on Facebook. We’ll

    10-year-old Evan Jackson had just made a touchdown in his football game, but he had to be pulled off to the sideline because he had overheated. It got him thinking, along with his brother Alec and cousin Caleb: what if there were a way to keep football players cool and hydrated without having to leave the field?

    The three boys--all elementary school students from McDonough, Georgia--came up with a prototype of a hydration and cooling system for football players. And along with 30 students, they were invited to present their award-winning science and engineering project to President Obama at the 3rd Annual White House Science Fair.

    “The idea of cool pads is shoulder pads that have an ice pack and Gatorade built in to prevent against heat exhaustion and save lives,” they explain to Politics Confidential, pointing to their display set up inside the White House. “It works by using three basic features--the compression shirt, the helmet, and the shoulder pads.”
