Citizen Hearing on 'UFO & Alien' Disclosure 2013

Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, April 29 – May 3, 2013

It has just been confirmed that five former members of the US Congress will hear evidence of a sixty year cover-up of evidence of UFOs and extraterrestrial life. In an April 8 Press Release, it was announced that from April 29 to May 3, 2013, former Senator Mike Gravel (1961-1981); former Congressman Merrill Cook (Rep, 1997-2001); former Congresswoman Darlene Hooley (1997-2009); former Congresswoman Carolyn Kilpatrick (1997-2011); and former Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey (1993-2013) will sit and hear evidence from forty witnesses. Modeled on a U.S. Senate hearing room formula, the five members will hear the evidence presented by “researchers, activists and military/agency/political witnesses” in what will be called a “Citizen Hearing on Disclosure.” The former Congressional members will hear evidence that the Roswell Crash did happen, that the US military issued shoot-to-kill orders against UFOs, that the FAA was ordered to cover up UFO sightings, that the reality of extraterrestrial life has officially been covered up since at least 1947, and that nuclear weapons facilities have been deactivated by UFOs.

The “Citizen Hearing on Disclosure” is the brainchild of Stephen Bassett from the Paradigm Research Group who succeeded in raising over a million dollars in funding for the event which will be streamed live to world and held in the National Press Club. Bassett says that:

The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure will attempt to accomplish what the U. S. Congress has failed to do for forty-five years – reveal the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time.

The last time the US Congress heard evidence about UFOs was in 1968 at a symposium held before the Committee On Science And Astronautics, which comprised 30 members of the U.S. House Of Representatives. The Congressional Committee heard evidence from six scientists, and accepted written statements from a further six scientists including Stanton Friedman, M.Sc. who will be a presenter at the 2013 Citizen Hearing on Disclosure.

On the Citizen Hearing website, the format is explained:

All will conduct themselves in the same manner appropriate to a Congressional hearing. To the extent possible the protocols for congressional hearings will be followed. Committee members will receive written statements from witnesses, hear oral statements and ask whatever questions they wish about the subject matter at hand.

Witnesses include former astronaut Edgar Mitchell, former Canadian Minister for Defense, Paul Hellyer, and witnesses/researchers from Brazil, Uruguay, Peru and China.

I spoke today to Stephen Bassett, Executive Director of the Citizen Hearing, about what he expects to emerge from the Citizen Hearing. He said that no report is expected from the former members of Congress who will simply hear witness testimony, receive reports, ask questions and maintain a suitable congressional model for the Citizen Hearing. The main intention is to have the evidence presented for follow up. In this regard, he explained five main goals:

  1. Send a message to the U.S. Congress that it is not doing its job, by having the Citizen Hearing gather evidence about UFOs and extraterrestrial life that deserves further investigation by the Congress.
  2. Reply to a White House claim in an official response to an earlier petition that there is no evidence supporting the extraterrestrial hypothesis.
  3. Stimulate Citizen Hearings in other countries by having the Citizen Hearing translated into the five most important world languages.
  4. Draw attention to the tremendous number of witnesses, researchers and activists working on disclosing the evidence of an extraterrestrial presence.
  5. Create a 501(c)3 organization that can gain funding for future Citizen Hearings.

A documentary will be produced from the Citizen Hearing which will be titled Truth Embargo. The April 28-May 3 Citizen Hearing is free and open to the public. More details are available at its main website.

ExoVaticanaNew-350pxYesterday Pope Francis I celebrated his first Easter Mass as the leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics. In his first “Urbi et Orbi” speech – Latin for “to the city [of Rome] and the world” – he called for peace in the Middle East; an end to human trafficking and greed; preventing the exploitation of natural resources; and protecting animals by becoming “responsible guardians of creation.” The Pope normally gives two Urbi et Orbi speeches each year where he deals with major challenges faced by the world and Christendom.

In a future speech it has been predicted that he will discuss a unique challenge that the world faces according to the authors of a new book. In Exovaticana, Chris Putnam and Tom Horn predict that the new Pope, Francis I, will soon announce the existence of extraterrestrial life, among whom an alien savior will emerge to reinvigorate Christian teachings!

Putnam and Horn, successfully predicted in their last book, the best-selling Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope is Here, that Pope Benedict would resign rather than die in office. They based their prediction on St Malachy’s, Prophecy of the Popes. According to Putnam and Horn, Francis is the final Pope, “Petrus Romanus”, who will oversee the dissolution of the Catholic Church as predicted in St Malachy’s prophecy, by announcing an extraterrestrial savior.

Putnam and Horn claim to have documented the research and evidence supporting their startling prediction in their new book, Exovaticano – advance orders of which have already rocketed it into Amazon’s best seller lists for its April 15 release. On their website and in Exovaticano, they claim that the Catholic Church hierarchy plans to announce an extraterrestrial savior who will usher in a new world spiritual belief system that supplants traditional Christianity and organized religion. Putnam’s and Horn’s research is based on interviews with Catholic scholars and scientists who were willing to discuss the Prophecy of the Popes and the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

Among the Catholic researchers interviewed is Dr Guy Consolmagno, a Jesuit and Vatican astronomer who generated much press interest in 2010 for his views on alien life. He said: “Any entity – no matter how many tentacles it has – has a soul.” When asked if he would baptize an alien, Consolmagno replied: “Only if they asked.” Putnam and Horn cite a difficult to find document written by Consolmagno who makes a remarkable claim about the relationship between Jesus and extraterrestrial life:

Perhaps it’s not so far-fetched to see the Second Person of the Trinity, the Word, Who was present “In the beginning” (John 1: l), coming to lay down His life and take it up again (John 10: 18) not only as the Son of Man but also as a Child of other races?

At first reading, it appears as though Consolmagno is suggesting that Jesus may have been the “Star-Child of an alien race” as Putnam and Horn suggest. On re-reading Consolmagno’s quote, it appears that he is instead claiming that the second aspect of the Holy Trinity that was personified in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, may be recognized as relevant to other worlds and races. This would make it possible for Consolmagno to baptize aliens, even on their own worlds.

If Jesus divinity is recognized by extraterrestrial races, and expressed in a unique way by them, then it is easy to understand why Consolmagno believes that contemporary society will “look to the Aliens to be the Saviors of humankind.” Consolmagno, as Putnam and Horn make clear, is no rogue priest making wild theological pronouncements about alien life. Consolmagno’s boss and Chief Vatican Astronomer, Dr Gabriel Funes, stunned the world in May 2008 when he revealed that it is acceptable for Catholics to openly contemplate extraterrestrial life. In an interview he said:

Just as there is a multiplicity of creatures on earth, there can be other beings, even intelligent, created by God. This is not in contrast with our faith because we can’t put limits on God’s creative freedom… “Why can’t we speak of a ‘brother extraterrestrial’? It would still be part of creation…

Both Funes and Consolmagno are scientific advisors to the Pope and advise him on all matters concerning astronomy – which includes the likelihood of a future discovery of extraterrestrial life. It’s inconceivable that both Funes and Consolmagno would have been able to make public their beliefs about extraterrestrial life without the approval of the previous Pope, Benedict XVI. It is highly likely that the Vatican astronomers will continue to be given permission to make statements about extraterrestrial life and its theological implications. So is it pure science driving these statements from Vatican astronomers or something else?

 

Funes and Consolmagno are best known among the scientific community for organizing an astrobiology conference on the grounds of the Vatican in November, 2009. The conference contemplated the consequences of the latest scientific advances which was made possible the discovery of exoplanets. A process that according to many astronomers makes the discovery of extraterrestrial life a question of “when” rather than “if”. For example, Dr Chris Impey from the University of Arizona’s Astronomy Department said at the 2009 conference:

As scientists gather to discuss progress in astrobiology, we still only know of one planet with life: our own. But there is a palpable expectation that the universe harbors life and there is hope that the first discovery is only a few years away.

It may be that Vatican astronomical interest is driven by the possibility of discovering extraterrestrial life on some distant exoplanet in the next few years. Not so according to Putnam and Horn. They contend that Vatican astronomers have already found evidence of extraterrestrial life, much closer to earth.

Putnam and Horn claim that the Vatican’s astronomical telescope (Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope) located at the Mt Graham Observatory, Arizona, is tracking something that has yet to be announced to the world. They quote from Father Malachi Martin, another Jesuit, who cryptically revealed something that was being tracked by Vatican astronomers that had great significance. In a 1997 interview on the popular radio program Coast to Coast AM,

Martin said:Because the mentality…amongst those who [are] at the…highest levels of Vatican administration and geopolitics, know…what’s going on in space, and what’s approaching us, could be of great import in the next five years, ten years.

On the question of what precisely is being tracked, Putnam and Horn claim that “people familiar with Malachi believe he may have been referring to a near-future arrival of alien intelligence.” The aliens will be carrying with them a message that transforms Christianity from an earth-centric faith system into a new galactic faith that welcomes extraterrestrials as our “spiritual brothers”. Who will be the savior that emerges from the incoming extraterrestrial object secretly monitored by astronomers that, if Putnam and Horn are correct, the Vatican is preparing to soon announce in an “Urbi et Orbi” speech to the world?

A video recording from President Obama’s address at the 2012 AIPAC conference at the Washington Convention Center shows a mysterious looking figure among the Secret Service agents protecting him. From one camera angle, the figure looks uncannily like a tall Gray alien; with no noticeable ear, mouth or facial hair. From most other camera angles, the figure appears as a bald Secret Service agent who looks human enough. Not so according to a popular Youtube video that has over 330,000 hits since its March 13, 2013 release. The bald Secret Service agent is a shape shifting humanoid alien, and the video provides detailed analysis supporting its remarkable claim. So was it all just a trick a light, or did the camera capture something we weren’t supposed to see? In the 1988 science fiction movie classic, They Live, extraterrestrials live among humanity using advanced technology to hide their physical differences. Is it possible that the Secret Service employs aliens to protect President Obama, and uses some kind of advanced technology to hide them from the public eye?

The idea of the U.S. Secret Service employing aliens appears far-fetched, but it was only back on December 7, 2012 that Prime Minister Medvedev said in candid off-air comments that Russian Presidents are briefed on aliens living among us. He went on to add that a highly classified national security agency monitors aliens residing on Earth. Major media thought it was a case of Medvedev’s dry humor, and that he gave the joke away when he referred to the Hollywood Blockbuster, Men in Black. Yet Medvedev appeared to be referring to a Russian documentary instead, one produced by the same network that the female reporter who asked him the alien question worked for. In fact, the reporter asked the question because the network was working on another extraterrestrial related documentary. A disturbing possibility is that the meteor strike on Russia on February 15, 2013 was related to Medevedev’s candid off-air comments about aliens among us. A Russian Parliamentarian claimed that the meteor strike was a warning to the Russian government. Was it a warning that Russian needs to maintain secrecy about alien visitors? If Medvedev wasn’t joking, it is possible that aliens secretly living on Earth aren’t just monitored, but also employed in sensitive security positions like the U.S. Secret Service.

It’s a fact that advanced technologies such as invisibility have been developed for use in classified military projects for some time now. Proof-of-concept demonstrations in the open source literature are available for funding and development purposes by military contractors. Classified versions would predictably be far more advanced, and very likely have been operational for some time now. It’s reasonable to conclude that invisibility or related technologies are used by the Secret Service to make agents disappear, and/or alter their physical appearance. Consequently, Secret Service agents very likely use invisibility technology when protecting the President and other VIPs. Such technologies may also be used by any extraterrestrial aliens recruited into the Secret Service. Is President Obama being guarded by aliens, or was it all just a trick of light? You decide!

giant-rock-home-page-newAn historic television interview with George Van Tassel recorded in June 1964 reveals a number of technologies that have been secretly developed by the U.S. Air Force and Navy based on information first gained from extraterrestrial visitors. Among the national security secrets revealed by Van Tassel is that the U.S. Air Force has possessed antigravity technology since at least 1956. Van Tassel claims to have witnessed a practical demonstration of antigravity technology in 1953 when he was taken up into an extraterrestrial spacecraft that had landed at Giant Rock airport in California which he managed at the time. In the interview, Van Tassel further claims that technologies based on retrieving visual scenes from any time period, including television signals and even time travel itself, have been developed, and then classified for national security reasons by the U.S. Navy. Based on his extraterrestrial contact experiences, Van Tassel devoted great effort to developing time travel technology and expanding human longevity through the four stories tall “Integratron” he built at Giant Rock. He died of a heart attack in 1978, only weeks before the scheduled completion of his Integratron. Circumstances surrounding his death suggest that the knowledge he gained on extending human longevity, another topic with important national security implications, had been appropriated by U.S. authorities for secret development.

 The television interview was conducted by Jack Webster from KVOS TV on June 18, 1964. Chief among Van Tassel’s claims is that he was taken up into an extraterrestrial spacecraft and given technological information by four space visitors that were human looking, and about 5’ 6” in height on August 24, 1953. One of the visitors was 700 years old according to Van Tassel. He was given a simple mathematical formula for time travel that directly correlated frequency with time in an inverse relationship. Remarkably, Van Tassel claims that the technology had subsequently been developed to view any visual scene from any time historic period. The technology was quickly classified by the U.S. Navy and the inventor was forced to work in a secret project. The time travel/viewing technology described by Van Tassel in his 1964 interview is similar to what was much later described as “Project Looking Glass” which whistleblowers claim to be run by the U.S. Navy.

 The equation Van Tassel received from his 1953 extraterrestrial contact became the basis for his development of the Integraton, a four stories tall structure that would lead to cellular rejuvenation and increase human longevity. It was intended to be free and open to the general public. On the verge of completing his Integratron project in 1978, Van Tassel died in mysterious circumstances of a heart attack. Select U.S. government agencies then intervened to confiscate material and documents from his property. The Integratron project was then abandoned. Van Tassel’s pioneering research on cellular rejuvenation and human longevity was very likely absorbed into a highly classified project that again had important national security implications.

 Finally, in the interview, Van Tassel also says he witnessed first-hand the antigravity technology of the extraterrestrial visitors who have had bases on the moon for centuries. Van Tassel also claimed that the US Air Force has developed antigravity technology in highly classified projects in 1956. Antigravity technology based on the principle of electrogravitics was discussed in open source scientific literature up until 1956 after which such research suddenly became highly classified.  No more scientific studies had appeared after 1956. Van Tassel’s claim gives a plausible answer for the mysterious disappearance of antigravity research from open scientific literature. Government agencies had succeeded in demonstrating their practical value, and importance for national security. All subsequent open source or civilian efforts to develop antigravity technologies were either classified or repressed. In the case of Otis Carr, a disciple of Nikola Tesla, his own civilian based antigravity technology was repressed with terrible results. Carr was jailed on trumped up charges and it was only four decades later, in March 2006, that one of Carr’s technical assistants, Ralph Ring, came forward to reveal the truth. Carr had successfully developed antigravity technology, and was subsequently repressed by national agencies.

 


The 1964 television interview with Van Tassel is a classic that features that pioneering research of one of the most important contactees from the 1950s, and some of the knowledge that was acquired with extraterrestrial assistance. The interview reveals three of the most important national security secrets in the USA that have been developed for well over five decades; antigravity technology; cell regeneration and human longevity; and time travel /viewing of the past and future. A film based on the life of George Van Tassel is currently under production featuring Hollywood actor, Kevin Gage. The film, Giant Rock: The Greatest UFO Story Never Told, will reveal more details of Van Tassel’s knowledge of time travel, antigravity and rejuvenation – knowledge that has been secretly developed by select national security entities for almost six decades.

A team of scientists has released a paper in the March edition of the Journal of Cosmology supporting claims from an earlier study, that a meteorite that crashed in Sri Lanka in December 2012 contained extraterrestrial fossils. The initial paper, “Fossil Diatoms in a New Carbonaceous Meteorite,” was published in January 2013 and subjected to criticism that the diatom fossils (a form of algae) found in the meteor had been contaminated by earth water and the fossils were terrestrial in origin. The new study authored by a team of scientists from Cardiff University, University of Buckingham, and University of California San Diego, found that the rock was definitely a meteorite and that the meteor had not been contaminated, and the fossils in it were ancient. The new scientific study gives strong support to Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe’s theory of Panspermia, that ancient microbial life has spread throughout the galaxy by comets.

The new scientific study, “The Polonnaruwa Meteorite: Oxygen Isotope, Crystalline And Biological Composition,” appeared in the March 5 edition of the Journal of Cosmology. It was first reported on March 11 by Sebastian Anthony, in ExtremeTech, who claimed that the new study “is the strongest evidence yet of cometary panspermia.”

The March 5 study directly addressed the main criticism leveled against the January paper that the meteor rock samples were contaminated by Earth water, and that the Diatom fossils were of terrestrial origin. Professor Patrick Kociolek from the University of Colorado wrote a response to Phil Plait from Bad Astronomy that:

… the diversity present in the images represent a wide range of evolutionary history, such that the “source” of the diatoms from outer space, must have gone through the same evolutionary events as here on earth. There are no extinct taxa found, only ones we would find living today…for me it is a clear case of contamination with freshwater.

Plait and other critics used Kociolek’s claim that the meteor sample was contaminated by freshwater. Using a sophisticated testing process, the new study, however, conclusively dismissed the contamination thesis:

The presence of a number of carbonaceous biological structures exhibiting severe nitrogen depletion is highly indicative of ancient fossilised biological remains. Some of these were deeply integrated in the surrounding mineral matrix suggesting they could not have been recent terrestrial contaminants.

The March 5 study also addressed criticism that the Sri Lanka rock samples were not meteorites; it concluded:

We conclude that the oxygen isotope data show P1 59/001-03 and P/159001-04 are unequivocally meteorites, almost certainly fragments originating from the fireball-causing bolide. The most likely origin of this low density meteorite with delicate structures, some highly carbonaceous, is a comet.

This March 5 scientific study helps confirm Wickramasinghe’s theory of Panspermia which the authors themselves point out: “The presence of fossilized biological structures provides compelling evidence in support of the theory of cometary panspermia first proposed over thirty years ago.” The new study is sure to raise more scrutiny of the Sri Lankan meteor sample and the idea that life is quite common throughout the universe, and can be spread by comets.

It has just been announced that the world’s first space tourist, Dennis Tito, is leading a private effort to send a manned space flight to Mars in January 2018. A Media Advisory titled “The Planets are Aligning for a Once-in-a-Generation Space Journey” claims that a rare alignment of the planets will be occurring that makes possible a manned mission to travel to Mars and back in 501 days. In a Media Advisory he announced the creation of the “Inspiration Mars Foundation”, a non-profit foundation that would lead the Mars mission. The Foundation, which Tito chairs, will give more details about the manned Mars mission in a February 27 Press conference at the National Press Club. Three respected space scientists are scheduled to discuss the proposed mission. Tito’s announcement follows an earlier announcement by SpaceX to establish a colony on Mars. Private efforts to create manned Mars missions, appear to be eclipsing official public efforts by NASA and other space agencies to send humans to Mars – but are they?

According to the February 20 Media Advisory issued by the Griffin Communication Group:

The Inspiration Mars Foundation, a newly formed nonprofit organization led by American space traveler and entrepreneur Dennis Tito, invites you to attend a press conference detailing its plans to take advantage of a unique window of opportunity to launch an historic journey to Mars and back in 501 days, starting in January 2018.

Tito achieved global fame when he paid $20 million to hitch a ride on a Russian Soyuz Space vehicle to the International Space Station in 2001. Tito now wants to contribute the growth of the American space industry at a time when NASA is facing budget cuts and the reduction of manned missions:

This “Mission for America” will generate new knowledge, experience and momentum for the next great era of space exploration. It is intended to encourage all Americans to believe again, in doing the hard things that make our nation great, while inspiring youth through Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and motivation.

Tito’s efforts follows a presentation by SpaceX founder Elon Musk in November 2012, where he announced plans to establish a colony of 80,000 on Mars. Taking a trip to Mars, if Musk has his way, would cost as little as $500,000. Musk revealed his long term plans in a November 16 presentation at the Royal Aeronautical Society. In an interview, Musk revealed that establishing a Martian colony was his ultimate objective, and “it always has been.” Given his recent space accomplishments, successfully sending an unmanned space vehicle to the International Space Station and back – Musk’s Mars vision is no idle pipedream. What of Dennis Tito? We will have to wait to see the February 27 Press Conference to learn more specifics.

Tito and Musk seem to be filling a hiatus in manned space missions to the moon and planets given cut backs in NASA funding. But are they really? Have official US manned space flights to other planetary bodies come to an end due to a stagnant U.S. economy? Not so according to the memoirs of former U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

In President Reagan’s Diary, the entry for Tuesday, June 11, 1985 (page 334) reads:

Lunch with 5 top space scientist. It was fascinating. Space truly is the last frontier and some of the developments there in astronomy etc. are like science fiction, except they are real. I learned that our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people.

Reagan’s comment was very revealing since the recently retired Space Shuttle held a maximum of eight people and only five were built for space flight. Even if all five took off fully loaded it would be impossible to place and maintain 300 astronauts in orbit. It couldn’t be any clearer. President Reagan was revealing the existence of a highly classified space program that could accommodate hundreds of astronauts in orbit. Military and corporate whistleblowers that have come forward to reveal what they know of classified antigravity space vehicles, would agree with Reagan. Hidden within one of the nine unified combatant commands of the U.S. military, as British hacker Gary McKinnon discovered back in 2002, is a highly classified fleet of ships that operate in deep space. The classified name of this secret space fleet is alleged to have been “Solar Warden”. The trip to Mars and back by the not so secret U.S. space fleet can be expected to be far less than the 501 days Tito plans for his 2018 space venture.

Orbital trajectories and sizes of 2012 DA14 and the meteor that streaked across the Russian skies on Friday. Photo by: SETI Institute

A ten thousand ton meteorite blew up yesterday over the Russian Urals with the force of an atomic bomb of 500 kilotons (30 Hiroshoma bombs) causing over 1200 injuries and damaging 3000 buildings in the city of Chelyabinks according to NASA and the Russian Interior Ministry. The meteorite explosion preceded by a few hours the near miss of the much larger Asteroid 2012 DA14 whose impact would have been far more catastrophic. The close timing between the two events led to some scientists claiming that they were related. Not so according to NASA which released a statement saying that the meteorite and Asteroid 2012 DA14 were entirely unconnected. More controversial are claims by Russian MP, Vladimir Zhirinovsky who told the Russian media that the meteorite was in fact a U.S. weapons test. While widely regarded as an extreme rightwing Russian nationalist given to making provocative claims by the Western media, Zhirinovsky does raise some important questions. Do elements of the U.S. military possess weapons that could simulate a meteorite falling over major cities? If so, then such weapons could indeed be used to intimidate nations into following policies against their national interests as Zhirinovsky was suggesting.

First, let’s begin with Zhirinovsky’s comments. He told Russia’s state controlled RIA news: “Those aren’t meteors falling, it’s the Americans testing new weapons” Zhirinovsky also claimed: “US Secretary of State John Kerry had wanted to warn Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov about the “provocation” on Monday, but couldn’t reach him.” Most controversially he went on to say: “Outer space has its own laws… Nothing will ever fall out there… If [something] falls, it’s people doing that. People are the instigators of wars, the provocateurs.”

Zhirinovsky’s claims might be easily dismissed as the scientifically illiterate comments of an extreme Russian nationalist. Yet, he does have a point that wars are often instigated by shadowy groups using false flag events to intimidate nations and provoke wars. Also, it has been calculated that the chances of asteroid near miss and meteor impact happening at nearly same time (only 15 hours apart) were calculated to be 1 in 100 million. That indicates a high likelihood that the events were more than coincidental which supports Zhirinovsky’s claim. So we now get to the core of Zhirinovsky’s claims. Does the U.S. military have the technology to simulate a meteorite impact or direct an actual meteor from its space trajectory over specific regions or cities over Earth?

According to what is publicly known about U.S. military capabilities no such technology exists. There are however classified military technologies secretly deployed in space that could redirect or imitate a meteor detonating over specific regions of the planet. Contrary to general public knowledge, there is strong evidence of a secret space fleet, controlled in part by elements of the U.S. military that is capable of interplanetary flight using sophisticated antigravity technologies. In his memoirs, Former President Ronald Reagan in fact referred to a secret space shuttle program that could fly 300 people:

Lunch with 5 top space scientist. It was fascinating. Space truly is the last frontier and some of the developments there in astronomy etc. are like science fiction, except they are real. I learned that our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people.

In regard to antigravity technologies, these have been clearly demonstrated to both exist, and to have been developed in classified military programs.

Using antigravity technologies, one of the vehicles belonging to this secret space fleet could approach and change the inertia (something regarded as impossible by the currently known laws of science) of a meteor, asteroid or comet in order to move it out of its normal space trajectory. Antigravity technology could therefore be used to direct meteors, or simulate a meteorite impact using other space objects, over nations for political purposes. Indeed, redirecting a meteor or asteroid in this way to cause regional destruction on Earth, could be used as a false flag event to warn nations against pursuing certain policies. Such an event would generate a new set of global threats that absorb public attention and future government funding, as occurred with the September 11, 2001 attack which has been claimed to have involved classified space weapons.

Finally, what of the timing of the meteorite impact and today’s asteroid pass? Is there a connection? In this regard, NASA says:

According to NASA scientists, the trajectory of the Russian meteorite was significantly different than the trajectory of the asteroid 2012 DA14, making it a completely unrelated object. Information is still being collected about the Russian meteorite and analysis is preliminary at this point. In videos of the meteor, it is seen to pass from left to right in front of the rising sun, which means it was traveling from north to south. Asteroid DA14′s trajectory is in the opposite direction, from south to north.”

 

While there may be no direct physical connection, the timing of the two events does create a clear psychological association, and suggests a possible political connection.

Psychologically, the two events have been associated by their close timing, only a few hours apart. The attention of the world public and media has been directed to a destructive meteorite impact at virtually the same time of a near miss by an asteroid, something that would have been far more destructive if it impacted. The world public and leaderships will predictably give more serious attention to the threat posed by asteroids and other Near Earth Objects.

Politically, if the meteorite impact was created by elements of the U.S. military, then the timing of the meteor impact and asteroid flyby was meant to send a clear political message to Russian leaders. The Chelyabinsk region is only 900 miles from Moscow and has long been a hub for the Russian military and defense industries. Zhirinovsky could be correct. The meteor may have been a warning to the Russian Federation to change policies that are inconsistent with U.S. policy, or else in future something from space might impact with far more catastrophic consequences.

Martian apparition at Fatima was an extraterrestrial encounter

Marian apparition at Fatima was an extraterrestrial encounter

The Pope’s resignation speech on Monday morning has left Vatican experts baffled over the real reason for his resignation. Most are dismissive of his stated health reason for resigning. Some commentators believe he was ordered to go by powerful behind the scenes forces who believed that the time was right for a new Pope. Some speculate that the Pope was ordered to resign by the Knights of Malta, a powerful behind the scenes Catholic order which has sovereign representative status at the United Nations. They may be right. After all, in 2005 when he began his Papacy, Pope Benedict was widely regarded as a place holder. Place holder for who?

The Final Pope according to the Prophesy of the Popes who would rule during the dissolution of the Catholic Church. What would emerge after the end of the Papacy and the Catholic Church, a new spiritual belief system based on world unity? What set of global events could usher in the dissolution of organized religion? For an answer, we can investigate the 1917 Fatima incident which Pope Benedict played a role in interpreting back in May 2000.

Three young children received six apparitions of the Virgin Mary over a period of six months from May to October 1917. Lucia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto received three prophecies or secrets. Two of the secrets were revealed by Lucia in 1941 in a document requested by Jose da Silva, Bishop of Leiria.

The First Secret concerned a vision of Hell on earth which was mitigated for the children by the promise that they and others would be taken to heaven by their devotion to the “Immaculate Heart of Mary.” Given that the apparitions occurred during the lead up to some of the most intense fighting of the First World War, the First Secret appeared to be a statement of contemporary global events. The Second Secret predicted a second World War and future calamities if Russia was not converted by the prayers of the faithful, and their dedication to the Virgin Mary. Both the onset of the Second World War and the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 have been regarded as supporters of the Fatima event as vindication of the Second Secret which seemed unthinkable at the time it was first publicly revealed. The Third Secret was not initially revealed by Lucia to the Bishop of Leiria in 1941 because she was “not yet convinced that God had clearly authorized her to act.” Two years later, the Bishop ordered Lucia to put the secret in writing. She wrote the secret down on a sheet of paper, put it in an envelope and sent it to the Bishop in June 1944 with the instruction that it was not to be opened until 1960 when “it will appear clearer.” The “Third Secret of Fatima” was not released to the public for another 56 years fueling speculation that it prophesied calamitous times for the Catholic Church. In May 2000, the Vatican released a document that did indeed reveal calamitous times ahead for the Catholic Church:

And we saw in an immense light that is God: `something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it’ a Bishop dressed in White, `we had the impression that it was the Holy Father’. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions.

Lucia later confirmed in communications with the Vatican that the Bishop dressed in White was a future Pope, but she did not know who. The Third Secret did indeed refer to the death of a Pope in a way that echoed the Prophesy of the Popes. The systematic death of Bishops and other religious figures in a ruined city appeared to symbolize the destruction of Rome and the Catholic Church. So did the Third Secret of Fatima prophesy that the Catholic Church would come to an end, and the last Pope killed? The theological commentary accompanying the Third Secret of Fatima was written by none other than Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the current Pope Benedict, who then headed the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. His deputy, Archbishop Tarcisio Bertone wrote: “Fatima is undoubtedly the most prophetic of modern apparitions.” While Ratzinger agreed with the prophetic value of the three secrets of Fatima, his interpretation of the Third Secret was that the death of the Pope symbolized the attempted assassination of John Paul II, and the persecution suffered by the Church in the 20th century.

What is the meaning of the “secret” of Fatima as a whole (in its three parts)? What does it say to us? First of all we must affirm with Cardinal Sodano: … “the events to which the third part of the “secret” of Fatima refers now seem part of the past.” Insofar as individual events are described, they belong to the past. Those who expected exciting apocalyptic revelations about the end of the world or the future course of history are bound to be disappointed.

So what was it about the Fatima event and the apparition of the Virgin Mary that could lead to the Vatican withholding the Third Secret for over fifty years until 2000? Was it because it did allude to or confirm what was found in the Prophesy of the Popes – the end of the Papacy and the Catholic Church? Or was withholding the Secret part of the Church’s strategy to see if it would outlast the Communist ideology, which did directly persecute Christians in the Soviet bloc? Pope Benedict opted for the second answer in giving his theological commentary in May 2000, but he knew that Fatima event was not simply a spiritual incident. The Pope knew that Fatima was actually a case of a UFO sighting witnessed by thousands in this remote Portuguese town. The Marian apparition witnessed by the three girls was related to extraterrestrials aboard the UFO whose revelations proved to be incredibly prophetic. The final of which involved the end of the Papacy and the Catholic Church. The real reason behind the Pope’s sudden resignation announcement may be that the Catholic Church is about to be convulsed by events related to the appearance of extraterrestrial life bearing a transformative spiritual message for humanity – one that will bring an end to organized religion around the world.

JPL/NASA graphic of Asteroid 2012 DA14

An incoming asteroid scheduled to pass Earth this coming Friday February 15 is generating much press attention as a new kind of threat facing humanity. At its closest approach Asteroid 2012 DA14 which is 150 feet long, will be 17,200 miles from the Earth. Less than 1/10 the distance to the moon, and within the outer orbits of communication and weather satellites. That qualifies as a very near miss in astronomical terms. In a NASA media teleconference held last Thursday, the consequences of an impact (which NASA emphasized would not happen this time) would be similar to the 1908 Tunguska event where a forest area of 750 square miles was destroyed in Siberia. In a CNN video interview held yesterday, the head of the Planetary Society, Bill Nye, emphasized that a large metropolitan area such as Atlanta, Boston or New York would be obliterated by an impact of something similar in size to Asteroid 2012 DA14. NASA pointed out that only 1% of asteroids the size of 2012 DA14 have been discovered. Presently, there is no effective global defense system against incoming asteroids. Critics claim that NASA is deliberatedly hyping the global threat posed by asteroids as part of a secret strategy to weaponize space. Is the media attention over Asteroid DA14 justified, or is increasing media interest part of an orchestrated secret strategy where asteroids replace terrorism as the preeminent global threat?

 

In Thursday’s media teleconference, NASA emphasized that the asteroid will definitely miss the Earth. It was pointed out that the Earth may not be as fortunate in future since only 1% of asteroids of similar size are known by NASA’s Near Earth Object Program. An asteroid the size of 2012 DA14, if it impacted, would be similar to the Tungaska event of 1908, according to NASA scientists and cause regional devastation. NASA’s Near Earth Object Program has a 20 million dollar budget, and lacks funding to track all near Earth objects. NASA relies on astronomers at various public and private observatories around the world to find and track asteroids such as 2012 DA14 which was discovered on February 23, 2012.

At the NASA media teleconference, NEO program scientists including its Program Manager and Chief Scientist, Dr Donald Yeomans from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory gave further details and answered questions about Asteroid 2012 DA14. Yeoman and his colleagues also gave responses to submitted questions prior to the media teleconference. In response to the question, “What would happen if DA14 were to impact Earth?” they explained:

Asteroid 2012 DA14 will not impact Earth, but if another asteroid of a size similar to that of 2012 DA14 (about 150 feet across) were to impact Earth, it would release approximately 2.5 megatons of energy in the atmosphere and would be expected to cause regional devastation. A comparison to the impact potential of an asteroid the size of 2012 DA14 could be made to the impact of a near-Earth object that occurred in 1908 in Tunguska, Siberia. Known in the asteroid community as the “Tunguska Event,” this impact of an asteroid just slightly smaller than 2012 DA14 (approximately 100 – 130 feet/30-40 meters across) is believed to have flattened about 750 square miles (1,200 square kilometers) of forest in and around the Podkamennaya Tunguska River in what is now Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia.

In response to the question, what is “NASA doing about Near-Earth objects,” Yeoman and his colleagues explain:

The NASA Near Earth Object Observation (NEOO) Program detects and tracks asteroids and comets passing close to Earth using both ground- and space-based telescopes. The network of projects supported by this program, commonly called “Spaceguard,” discovers these objects, characterizes a subset of them and plots their orbits to determine if any could be potentially hazardous to our planet.

Spaceguard was a term coined by Arthur C. Clark in his book, Rendezvous with Rama. Like in Clark’s book, Spaceguard is a global detection system for asteroids, comets, or near-Earth objects in general, that have a potential to impact the earth. A 1992 U.S. Congressional Study produced a Spaceguard Survey Report that mandated NASA locate 90% of large (greater than 1 km) near-Earth asteroids within 10 years. Serious funding began for Spaceguard after the Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 impact on Jupiter in 1994 that released the energy equivalent six million megatons of TNT (100,000 times the largest hydrogen bomb ever tested). Enough for an Extinction Level Event (ELE) were something similar in size to hit earth.  

NASA’s Near Earth Object Office attempts to balance monitoring the threats posed by NEOs and not unnecessarily causing public alarm. The budget for tracking potential hazardous objects is relatively small, giving NASA, according to some critics, a vested interest in hyping the threat posed by NEOs. That certainly was the opinion of Richard C. Hoagland who believed that NASA was hyping the threat posed by Asteroid 2012 DA14 to increase its funding. Hoagland has a point. NASA is desperate for funds since its budget was cut for 2012, and frozen for the next three years at a time of increasing inflation. Listening to Bill Nye in his CNN interview, it’s clear that Nye was also hyping the threat posed by Near Earth objects using gestures and language to emphasize their danger to humanity.

The increasing media hype over the threat posed by asteroids leads to the scenario that they may in future replace global terrorism as the new preeminent threat to humanity. This scenario in fact was clearly anticipated nearly forty years ago by one of NASA’s pioneers, Dr Werner Von Braun.

According to Carol Rosin, who worked with Von Braun in his final years, he became increasingly concerned over secret plans to create new global threats to justify a military buildup in outer space:

When I was a Corporate Manager of Fairchild Industries from 1974 through 1977, I met the late Dr. Wernher Von Braun. We first met in early 1974. At that time, Von Braun was dying of cancer but he assured me that he would live a few more years to tell me about the game that was being played- that game being the effort to weaponize space, to control the Earth from space and space itself…. As practically a deathbed speech, he educated me about those concepts and who the players were in this game…. What was most interesting to me was a repetitive sentence that he said to me over and over again during the approximately four years that I had the opportunity to work with him. He said the strategy that was being used to educate the public and decision makers was to use scare tactics That was how we identify an enemy.

The strategy that Wernher Von Braun taught me was that first the Russians are going to be considered to be the enemy. In fact, in 1974, they were the enemy, the identified enemy. We were told that they had “killer satellites”. We were told that they were coming to get us and control us — that they were “Commies.”

Then terrorists would be identified, and that was soon to follow. We heard a lot about terrorism. Then we were going to identify third-world country “crazies.” We now call them Nations of Concern. But he said that would be the third enemy against whom we would build space-based weapons.

The next enemy was asteroids. Now, at this point he kind of chuckled the first time he said it. Asteroids-against asteroids we are going to build space-based weapons.

If Rosin is correct, then Werner Von Braun believed that NASA would eventually begin to hype the threat posed by asteroids and near earth objects as part of a secret strategy to make asteroids the new global threat. While NASA went to some length to emphasize that Asteroid 2012 DA14 did not threaten the earth, the media frenzy created by NASA’s detailed media teleconference is creating a public perception of asteroids as a new global threat.

It is not far-fetched to speculate that if an asteroid the size of Asteroid 2012 DA14 were ever to impact the earth and cause regional devastation that included parts of the USA, that we would have a new 911 event. The U.S. would lead a global coalition of the willing to transform Spaceguard from an NEO early detection system to a preventive system equipped with advanced space based weapons. More disturbing would be the possibility that elements of a highly classified US led space fleet discovered by the British hacker, Gary McKinnon, could deliberately steer an asteroid to impact the Earth to create the world’s first space-based false flag event.

The search for an explanation of what caused the Super Bowl power blackout just got deeper with live camera video feed of a UFO filmed over the Louisiana Super Dome minutes before the blackout. Yesterday, the International Business Tribune, published a story featuring the video titled: “Did Red UFO in New Orleans Sky Trigger Super Bowl Power Cut.” The video shows two mysterious red lights floating above the Superbowl stadium minutes before the blackout. The video is a record of the live camera feed from the Online Weather Center for New Orleans on the day and evening of the Super Bowl. The power outage lasted 34 minutes, only slightly longer than the global power outage caused by extraterrestrials in the Sci Fi classic, The Day the Earth Stood Still, aimed at sending a message to world governments. Was it all just coincidental, or was the UFO an extraterrestrial vehicle sending a message to humanity?

The video became available on Youtube soon after the Super Bowl ended on February 3 and uploaded with the title. “Blimp or Ufo ? Lights Above Super Bowl 47 Before Blackout New Orleans Superdome Blackout ! UFO ?” The video was spotted by Dominic Gover from the International Business Tribune who ran his story in the highly regarded International Business Tribune on February 6. According to Gover,

Officials in New Orleans are still baffled by what happened to disrupt the American football game between Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. Confusiondeepened when energy supplier Entergy New Orleans admitted its investigation had drawn a blank.A full-scale inquiry has been mounted by the owners of the Superdome. Consultants were being drafted in to analyse data. More than $1m of improvements to the stadium were commissioned in the aftermath of the blackout. But could footage of the sky over the southern state city at the time of the power cut hold clues?

The video shows the Louisiana Superdome on the day of the Super Bowl taken by the Live Camera feed from the Online Weather Center. According to the video narrator:

There was something that appeared right above the Superdome right before the lights went out… Maybe nothing, maybe something. But there was something above the Superdome in the sky right before the lights went out.

In my previous Super Bowl article, I speculated about the similarities between the Super Bowl power outage and the power blackout in the Day the Earth Stood Still Sci Fi classic:

In the Day the Earth Stood Still, an alien called Klaatu comes up with the idea of a 30 minute power outage to get the attention of Earth governments so that they allow scientists to meet to discuss the alien’s proposals for nuclear disarmament and world peace. With more than seventy years elapsing since the first UFO sightings and alleged communications with extraterrestrials, could aliens have lost patience with the US government? Could aliens have chosen to demonstrate their power by orchestrating a power outage at the New Orleans Superdome during the biggest moment in the US sporting calendar?

The video of the live camera feed of a UFO over the Superdome minutes before the blackout does make it more plausible that over 111 million viewers witnessed a message from extraterrestrials. On the other hand, the UFO may have been a blimp or other mundane terrestrial source that coincided with a chance electrical breakdown at the Superdome during a remarkable Super Bowl game. You decide.
