Theodore T.R. Roosevelt, Jr. was an American politician, author, naturalist, soldier, explorer, mason and historian who served as the 26th President of the United States.
When one thinks of U.S. Presidents and UFOs several of our Chief Executives come to mind. Firstly, there is President Eisenhower purportedly meeting aliens at Edwards Air Force Base in 1954. Then there is JFK’s memo to the CIA asking for disclosure on UFOs ten days before his assassination.
More humorously but perhaps true is the story of Richard Nixon treating comedian Jackie Gleason to a view of dead alien Grays at Homestead Air Force Base in 1974. But what about Teddy Roosevelt?
Is anyone in the UFOlogy Community even aware of a documented UFO sighting over our 26th president’s home, Sagamore Hill, in Oyster Bay, New York on August 1, 1907, when he was in his second term of office?
According to an old clipping found by UFOlogist Kay Massingill from a newspaper called the D.C. Evening Star dated August 2, 1907, two events of a mysterious nature occurred in the town of Oyster Bay in a 24 hour period and both concerned Mr. Roosevelt.
In the latter, the town librarian Miss Denton opened up the library on the morning of the 1st and discovered a beautiful mahogany chair donated by Teddy to the museum from his days as Governor of New York had split down the backside sometime the night before. More peculiar was the fact that on the reverse back of the chair was the Bald Eagle Seal of the United States of America, and it was split in half.
However, the main event occurred the evening before between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. when a brilliant white light was seen to hang motionless over Sagamore Hill.
According to the dispatch, it was a light considerably larger than a star, and hung about 300' in altitude over the house according to numerous witnesses. It was an intense white light, and after 11:00 p.m. it began to fade to a spark and then extinguished.
Meanwhile in the library a short distance away, a chair associated with Sagamore Hill’s occupant was coming undone in a most mysterious way.
Was Mr. Roosevelt home the night of the UFO sighting? The article doesn’t say and we’ll probably never know but it is known that Sagamore was called Roosevelt’s Summer White House and it was the middle of summer.
Why would a ball of light attend to Mr. Roosevelt in the heat of 1907? Two clues can be found concerning his agenda as President that year.
One clue was his December 3, 1907 Annual Address to Congress. The speech is mundane for the most part dealing with anti-trust actions, railroads, the Department of Agriculture, conservation, unions and such but near the end of it Roosevelt begins to lay out the groundwork for creating the world’s most dominant modern navy. It seemed Roosevelt had a great grasp of what was happening in the world concerning Japan, Germany and China and their eventual rise on the world’s stage. He specifically recommended dredging Pearl Harbor to make it a world class naval base and increasing Alaska’s defenses. Did he know something about the world no one else did? His maneuvering just months after the Sagamore Hill incident directly led to Americas emergence as the modern world’s greatest Suprerpower.
Did he have help from ET, whispering in his ear? During his tenure America’s Navy grew from 5th to 3rd in the world in size.
The second clue is the very interesting coincidence of the Second International Peace Convention held at The Hague, Netherlands that year from June 15 to October 18, 1907 which was during the Sagamore Hill sighting. That convention was the brainchild of none other than Teddy Roosevelt. It was an attempt to codify the rules of war, particularly naval warfare. More importantly, it was seen as the world’s first attempt at an international governing body, a forerunner to the League of Nations and the United Nations.
So one could ask if possibly aliens, or time travelers for that matter, were attempting to lay out the groundwork for, or interfere with, the earth’s direction in the 20th and 21st centuries and might they have been in contact with our Presidents long before Mr. Eisenhower’s 1954 encounter?
