I think it’s safe to admit some unexpected weirdos have become politicians lately. Your left or right leaning views aside, possible candidates for various political positions have been appearing in some unorthodox locations as of late.
Take Florida for example. The state currently counts Bill Nelson as a U.S. Senator. Nelson is well-known for flying on the space shuttle Columbia, an accomplishment worth touting and certainly grants him a different perspective than his peers.
But as uncovered by the Miami Herald, one congressional candidate out of Miami is trying to one up Nelson. Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera, a Republican House candidate, claims to have visited a spaceship of aliens. Yes, like as in extraterrestrial beings. She stated the ship had “round seats” and was powered by “quartz rocks.” Since visiting the aliens at the age of 7, she confesses that these aliens have telepathically communicated with her over the years.
The proof comes from two Spanish-language YouTube videos. In the footage, here are among the things she says the aliens have told her.
▪ There are 30,000 skulls — “different from humans” — in a cave in the Mediterranean island of Malta.
▪ The world’s “energy center” is in Africa.
▪ The Coral Castle, a limestone tourist attraction South Miami-Dade, is actually an ancient Egyptian pyramid.
▪ “God is a universal energy.”
When asked by the Herald among her alien buds, Rodriguez Aguilera released a statement. She touched on the Space Age and beyond, but failed to mention anything regarding extraterrestrial beings.

“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,” she told the Herald. “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.”
That being said, 2017 is by far the strangest year I’ve been alive.
