Â Â Â Larry Klayman is still alive. We know this because, last week, he petitioned the Department of Homeland Security to deport President Obama back to Africa. âHe has no legitimacy to be president, and he must be tried, convicted, and removed from our shores,â Klayman declared in a press release, âbefore he destroys everything the Founding Fathers bequeathed to us.â
How could anyone forget Klayman, the prodigiously litigious Gennifer Flowers attorney who lodged more than a dozen lawsuits against the Clinton administration during the 1990s? Since then, heâs sued everybody from Elena Kagan to Dick Cheney to Mark Zuckerberg to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to even his own mother. When he left Judicial Watch in 2003 to seek the Republican nomination for Florida’s U.S. Senate post, Judicial Watch wouldnât take him back, so he sued them, too.
Anyway, the only reason Klayman rates a De Void blurb is because, for a few fleeting moments in 2009, the guy swiveled his omnivorous targeting-acquisition machinery at UFOs. Back then, Klayman promised to get âthe governmentâ to concede that UFO data was classified for reasons of national security. Such an admission, of course, would be seismic insofar as the USAF wriggled out of its UFO mission in 1969 by declaring there were no national security angles to the phenomenon. Klayman’s new platform, Freedom Watch, hurled FOIA missiles at the CIA, the DIA, the DoD, the NSA and the USAF, knowing before hearing back that his barrage would be futile.
âWeâre not waiting for them to go through their administrative aspects,â Klayman vowed of the anticipated military evasiveness. âWeâre going straight into a court of law because theyâre in violation.â He told De Void he was looking forward to gathering affidavits from government officials who âshouldnât have a problem with this if it isnât a national security issue, as they claim.â At the time, he hadnât decided where to file but he was certain he could have his pick of venues. âThe media loves a good story,â he said. âMost (judges) are egocentric, they donât make a lot of money and they like to get their names in the news.â
De Void kept waiting for the court action. Surely the wires would pick up on the story when it broke. After all. Larry Klayman. The seasons changed. Nothing. The UFO gambit didn’t even get him on TV. De Void left unreturned messages with Klaymanâs gatekeepers. The clock kept ticking and the seasons changed again. After months of radio silence it became clear that Klayman had given up. No clarion press announcement this time.
Sometimes you wonder which exact species of anger or attention deficit disorder motivates and drives characters like Larry Klayman. Maybe he figured there wasnât enough divisive partisan red meat in UFOs to sustain his appetite. Maybe he, too, began to realize the MSM doesn’t cover UFOs. And maybe it all worked out for the best.
