Today President Obama meets with his Chinese counterpart, President Xi Jinping in a two day Sino-US summit in Sunnylands California. The summit is expected to discuss hot button strategic issues like cybersecurity, North Korea, and high-tech espionage. The meeting will set the stage for a more ambitious meeting in July where U.S. and Chinese officials will hammer out agreements in the strategic and economic spheres. The Obama Xi summit follows upon a speech made on May 21, 2013, by Dr Henry Kissinger who argued that the U.S. and China needed to cooperate in creating a new world order. Kissinger’s influence extends well beyond his status as an influential “elder statesman” that was instrumental in the 1972 Nixon visit to, and rapprochement with, China. According to various documents and whistleblower sources, Kissinger has been powerful figure in managing global information about what is known about highly classified technology programs that date back to the Nazi era. In his speech, Kissinger was signaling to the Chinese leadership that a new world order jointly headed by the US and China is not only inevitable but the indispensable key for China gaining access to the Holy Grail of high technology – retrieved extraterrestrial technologies. If President Xi chooses to fully cooperate with President Obama, then disclosure of the truth about extraterrestrial life and technology can be expected to eventually follow.

In his May 21 speech, Kissinger said: “The challenge is how to build a world order for the first time in history on a global basis…. The United States and China have a special obligation.” Kissinger went on to describe how this would be done:

It is not that China and the United States should establish a G2 organization, but what they should do, and what they need to do is to approach a common conception of how problems should be dealt with, and then work with the international community to make a real international community.

As a former National Security Advisor and Secretary of State during the Nixon and Ford administrations (1969-1977), Kissinger has a powerful resume for advocating his thoughts about world governance. What is not generally known about Kissinger is that his influence was established well before he was chosen by Nixon to be his National Security Advisor. As a protégé of Nelson Rockefeller, Kissinger played important roles in the covert Cold War operations strategy developed in the Eisenhower administration. Rockefeller chose Kissinger to be his point man for developing a strategic covert response to the Soviet threat. Only problem was that the Soviet Union was not the real threat – it was the advanced technologies and capabilities of extraterrestrial visitors.

Kissinger’s influence dates from experiences in Germany during World War II when he was part of the Army’s Counterintelligence Corps (CIC), and helped identify Nazi scientists familiar with advanced technologies of interest to the U.S. Some of the Nazi scientists retrieved in Operation Paperclip were directly involved in advanced technological projects that according to the father of modern rocketry, Hermann Oberth, had been assisted by knowledge of extraterrestrial life and technology. Oberth said:

… we cannot take credit for our record advancement in certain scientific fields alone. We have been helped.” When asked by whom, he replied, “the peoples of other worlds.”

Embedded within the Army’s CIC was a little known elite unit called the Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit (IPU) that, according to a leaked document, had been created by General George Marshall in 1942 to study crashed flying saucers. The US. Army initially denied that the IPU existed, but documents released through the Freedom of Information Act confirmed its existence at the time Kissinger served in the CIC. Kissinger left the CIC as a reserve captain in 1949 and his previous work hunting Nazi scientists involved in covert technology projects almost certainly exposed him to the IPU, and marked him as someone with a big role to play in future covert projects involving alien technologies.

Beginning in 1953, Kissinger served as an advisor to Nelson Rockefeller who was responsible during the Eisenhower administration for government reorganization and the contracting of classified research and development projects into the corporate world. These technology development projects involved highly classified alien technologies in a program run by a Truman appointed committee named Majestic-12 (aka MJ-12).

Kissinger’s long suspected role in classified programs attempting to reverse engineer retrieved alien technologies and his direct relationship with MJ-12 was posthumously confirmed by Dr Eric Henry Wang. Wang was the head of the Department of Special Studies that from 1956 to 1960 was located at Sandia National Laboratories, and previously at Wright Patterson Air Force base in Dayton, Ohio. After his death in 1960, his widow revealed that Henry Kissinger, according to Dr Wang, “is deeply involved in the Flying Saucer Program. In fact, he was completely in charge of it at the time that Dr. Wang was still alive and involved with it.”

Kissinger’s influential role in alien related projects was illuminated even further in filmed testimony released to the public of a former CIA agent in May 2013. The agent claimed that he had been recruited by the CIA while serving as an army cryptologist during the Eisenhower administration. He revealed that in 1958 he and his immediate CIA superior were summoned by President Eisenhower, who was accompanied by Vice-President Nixon, to pass on a message to the MJ-12 control group in charge of alien related projects:

We called the people in from MJ-12, from Area 51 and S-4, but they told us that the government had no jurisdiction over what they were doing…. I want you and your boss to fly out there. I want you to give them a personal message…. I want you to tell them, whoever is in charge, I want you to tell them that they have this coming week to get into Washington and to report to me. And if they don’t, I’m going to get the First Army from Colorado. We are going to go over and take the base over. I don’t care what kind of classified material you got. We are going to rip this thing apart.

The CIA agent’s testimony is significant since it revealed the brewing conflict between the representative government led by Eisenhower and Nixon, and the secret control group, MJ-12, that was not willing to disclose the full extent of its operations. Significantly, this occurred at the very time that Kissinger was in charge of alien related projects, according to Dr Wang. Basically, Kissinger and others on the MJ-12 committee were opposed to Eisenhower and Nixon exerting any authority over alien related projects.

When Nixon finally succeeded to the Presidency in 1968, Henry Kissinger was chosen to serve as his National Security advisor. Most political commentators assumed that Kissinger, as a Nelson Rockefeller man, was chosen to ensure Rockefeller’s support for the Nixon Presidential campaign. The truth was that Kissinger was there to ensure that Nixon would not cause any problems when it came to how alien related projects were being run. Kissinger represented the interests of Rockefeller and the MJ-12 committee.

The Nixon-Kissinger visit to China in 1972 was an important step in forming a second front against the Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact allies including Vietnam. China was now formally allowed to join the United Nations, and a rapprochement had begun with the United States. The four decades long rapprochement has culminated with Kissinger’s May 21 speech recommending a partnership by the US and China in creating a New World Order. The sub-text is that if President Xi cooperates with President Obama, then China will be allowed greater access into the covert world of advanced alien technology programs. The price for eventual public disclosure of alien life and technologies, something that would greatly benefit China, is full cooperation between the U.S. and China in establishing a New World Order.

In sWhistleblower on Eisenhower Invasion  threatensational testimony submitted on the final day of the Citizen Hearing on [UFO] Disclosure, six former members of the U.S. Congress heard from a former CIA agent about an incident involving President Eisenhower and extraterrestrials. In a video testimony played today before the retired US Congress members, the agent alleged that President Eisenhower sought to gain information from a secret control group called MJ-12 about alien related projects at a facility near Area 51 called S-4, both of which are located in a remote region of Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada. When denied the requested information, Eisenhower allegedly authorized a personal message that the agent and his immediate superior would deliver to those in charge at Area 51 and S-4. The message was a direct threat that the President would authorize a military invasion of Area 51 and S-4 if his request for information was not carried out.

The former CIA agent is currently aged 77 and suffering from acute kidney problems and has only several months to live. A 15 minutes segment was played out of a longer interview where he went on the public record about how he was recruited by a senior CIA operative located out of Langley, Virginia to work with the CIA on the issue of extraterrestrial life. At the time of his recruitment in 1958, he had just completed training at the US Army Signal Training Center, and began working as an Army cryptologist. He said that he was recruited by the CIA operative because it would give him significantly more money than he was earning in the Army. His first assignment was to examine files on UFOs and extraterrestrial life submitted from USAF base at Fort Belvoir, which were different to the Project Blue Book files studied at Wright Patterson Air Force Base that were eventually released to the general public.

In response to questions from UFO historian Richard Dolan, the former CIA agent went on to explain how in 1958, he and his boss – the CIA operative – were summoned by President Eisenhower to the Oval Office. The President, who was accompanied by Vice-President Nixon, told the agent and his boss that he was trying to get information about efforts to learn about extraterrestrial life and technology. The agent said that according to President Eisenhower: “MJ-12 was supposed to find out, but they never sent reports to him.” The CIA agent said he and his boss were called into the Oval Office”. President Eisenhower said:

We called the people in from MJ-12, from Area 51 and S-4, but they told us that the government had no jurisdiction over what they were doing…. I want you and your boss to fly out there. I want you to give them a personal message…. I want you to tell them, whoever is in charge, I want you to tell them that they have this coming week to get into Washington and to report to me. And if they don’t, I’m going to get the First Army from Colorado. we are going to go over and take the base over. I don’t care what kind of classified material you got. We are going to rip this thing apart.”

In response to Dolan’s question, “Eisenhower was going to invade Area 51?” the CIA agent confirmed that Eisenhower indeed planned to so with the First Army.

After traveling to Area 51 and S-4, the CIA agent said that he saw several garage type doors with flying saucers in them. He described seeing a Gray alien at the S-4 facility that his boss “partially interviewed”. Upon returning to the White House, the agent and his boss relayed what they had seen at S-4. Significantly, the FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover, was also present during the debriefing of the CIA agent and his boss over what they had witnessed at S-4 and Area-51. According to the CIA agent, Eisenhower was shocked.

The testimony of the CIA agent was admitted into the Citizen Hearing by the main organizer, Stephen Bassett, since he thought it was credible based on the research of Linda Moulton Howe and Richard Dolan. The CIA agent’s testimony yields important insights among which include:

  1. President Eisenhower had lost control of extraterrestrial related projects to a control group called MJ-12. This is precisely what Stephen Lovekin, who served in the White House Army Signals Corps, said motivated Eisenhower to give his departing Military-Industrial Complex speech in January 1961.
  2. The CIA was tasked with the study of extraterrestrial life and technology, and had access to USAF files located at Fort Belvoir. This helps confirms leaked Majestic documents that President Kennedy first approached the CIA to get access to MJ-12 documents dealing with UFOs and extraterrestrial life.
  3. Extraterrestrial technology was being studied at a secret facility, S-4, located near Area 51. This helps confirm the testimony of Robert Lazar who was the first to describe the secretive facility S-4 facility having several extraterrestrial vehicles in them.
  4. An extraterrestrial, a Gray, was secretly being housed at the S-4 facility. This helps confirm the testimony of witnesses such as Bill Uhouse that aliens were assisting engineers working on black projects attempting to reverse engineer alien propulsion technologies.

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.

Screenshot from video showing mysterious alien looking Secret Service agent in background

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!

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.

World Economic ForumIn Davos Switzerland, a prominent ski resort, the world’s business elite are meeting to discuss what to expect over the next 10 years. This year, the annual World Economic Forum meeting runs from January 23 to 27 and business leaders are joined by prominent politicians and central bankers. For 2013, an 80-page analysis of 50 risks for the next 10 years was distributed to attendees. The Global Risks 2013 report  is lengthy list of prognostications of what world leaders need to plan for to avoid “systemic shocks and catastrophic events”. Among the list are five X factors that according to the report, “no country alone can prevent.” One of the X factors is the discovery of extraterrestrial life.

The Global Risks 2013 report begins by outlining the importance of "national resilience" in response to anticipated global risks over the next 10 years:

Global risks would meet with global responses in an ideal world, but the reality is that countries and their communities are on the frontline when it comes to systemic shocks and catastrophic events. In an increasingly interdependent and hyperconnected world, one nation’s failure to address a global risk can have a ripple effect on others. Resilience to global risks – incorporating the ability to withstand, adapt and recover from shocks – is, therefore, becoming more critical. This special report is organized around two axioms:

  • Global risks are expressed at the national level. 
  • No country alone can prevent their occurrence.

The report goes on to explain ways in which world leaders can “share insights and ideas that improve national and organizational resilience to global risks.” 

Among the list of global risks are five X factors developed in collaboration with Nature, a leading science journal. The Global Risks 2013 report recommended readers “to consider a set of five X factors and reflect on what countries or companies should be doing to anticipate them.”

The last of the five X factors is the “Discovery of Alien Life”. The World Economic Forum report begins this section as follows:

Given the pace of space exploration, it is increasingly conceivable that we may discover the existence of alien life or other planets that could support human life. What would be the effects on science funding flows and humanity’s self-image?

The report goes on to explain:

It was only in 1995 that we first found evidence that other stars also have planets orbiting them. Now thousands of “exoplanets” revolving around distant stars have been detected. NASA’s Kepler mission to identify Earth-sized planets located in the “Goldilocks zone” (not too hot, not too cold) of sun-like stars has been operating for only three years and has already turned up thousands of candidates, including one the size of Earth. The fact that Kepler has found so many planet candidates in such a tiny fraction of the sky suggests that there are countless Earth-like planets orbiting sun-like stars in our galaxy. In 10 years’ time we may have evidence not only that Earth is not unique but also that life exists elsewhere in the universe.

What would be the national and global impact of such a discovery according to the Global Risks 2013 report?

The discovery would certainly be one of the biggest news stories of the year and interest would be intense. But it would not change the world immediately…. Over the long term, the psychological and philosophical implications of the discovery could be profound. If life forms (even fossilized life forms) are found in our solar system, for example, the origin of life is “easy” – that any place in the universe life can emerge, it will emerge. It will suggest that life is as natural and as ubiquitous a part of the universe as the stars and galaxies. The discovery of even simple life would fuel speculation about the existence of other intelligent beings and challenge many assumptions that underpin human philosophy and religion.

Through basic education and awareness campaigns, the general public can achieve a higher science and space literacy and cognitive resilience that would prepare them and prevent undesired social consequences of such a profound discovery and paradigm shift concerning humankind’s position in the universe.

What would be the “undesired social consequences of such a profound discovery?” For an answer, one can look to the 1961 Brookings Report that was commissioned by NASA and written by the Brookings Institution for eventual presentation to the US Congress. The Brookings Report, titled “Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs,” described an alarming scenario of what might happen to society if humanity was not sufficiently prepared for the discovery of technologically advanced extraterrestrial civilizations:

Evidences of its [extraterrestrial] existence might also be found in artifacts left on the moon or other planets. The consequences for attitudes and values are unpredictable, but would vary profoundly in different cultures and between groups within complex societies; a crucial factor would be the nature of the communication between us and the other beings…. Anthropological files contain many examples of societies, sure of their place in the universe, which have disintegrated when they had to associate with previously unfamiliar societies espousing different ideas and different life ways; others that survived such an experience usually did so by paying the price of changes in values and attitudes and behavior.

Is social disintegration what the Davos Global Risks 2013 report has in mind if extraterrestrial life is discovered? The simple answer is no, if leaders develop the necessary “national and organizational resilience” to such a discovery, and implement “basic education and awareness campaigns”. The Global Risks 2013 report shows how far humanity has come over the last 50 years since the Brookings Report was written. World Economic Forum organizers are far more optimistic and believe that humanity can be sufficiently prepared for a “paradigm shift concerning humankind’s position in the universe.” World leaders currently meeting at the Davos World Economic Forum are themselves being prepared for the possible discovery of extraterrestrial life within the next 10 years.

On January 9 Gordon Duff published an article declaring that a US Congressional investigation of alien moon bases was underway. In the article, Duff doesn’t disclose sources to back up his claim, but referred instead to stories from other publications that touch on various aspects of his claim. Among them is a photo of what appears to be a tall tower on the moon; and a controversial photo and video of an alien moon base allegedly discovered and leaked by China, yet critics claim that the video is actually old NASA footage. According to Kerry Cassidy from Project Camelot, Duff’s claim is a genuine disclosure with some necessary redirects and disinformation thrown in for the sake of plausible deniability and for the benefit general reader still unaccustomed to the reality of an extraterrestrial/UFO cover up.  Is it possible that the US Congress has begun holding secret hearings on decades-old evidence of alien moon bases?

Duff began his article:

Discussions of alien moon bases and videos of structures on the dark side of the moon aren’t new. That congress is investigating, not only the bases themselves but three decades or more of continually doctored data from NASA and defense space projects is news.

The closest Duff gets to supporting this astounding claim is referring to photos and a video of alleged alien structures on the moon. The first photo, and video appears to show a base of some kind on the moon. The photo and video were allegedly taken by China’s second lunar orbiter the Chang’e-2, and leaked to the world by China. According to DarkGovernment.com:

The image, however, has been identified with a NASA lunar orbiter mission, not the Chinese.Further investigation has led some to believe the image is an outright hoax, while others are still adamant it’s real.

Disclose.tvAlien Moon Base Captured By Chang'e-2 Orbiter? 2012

Another photo appears to show a tower on the moon [see top image] which according to Duff “is approx. 13 miles high, 4 miles in diameter at the base, the dome top has three miles in diameter.”

Duff cites DarkGovernment.com which says: “insiders Ken Johnston and Donna Hare accuse the space agency of “ordering a cover-up of photographic evidence,” and that “NASA doctored, obfuscated, and obscured thousands of photos over the years.”

Duff doesn’t give sources to substantiate his headline grabbing claim that the US Congress is hearing about a NASA orchestrated alien cover up. Yet he does refer to two witnesses, former NASA contractors/employees who would know about such a cover-up. Ken Johnston and Donna Hare would be among the key witnesses that would be expected to be called before such a Congressional committee. To that list, one could add Karl Wolf who has also testified publicly that NASA along with the US Air Force has tampered with evidence of extraterrestrial life on the moon. Wolf is mentioned in the DarkGovernment article that writes:

As reported by the Washington Times, “Karl Wolf, an Air Force sergeant who was assigned to the National Security Agency, said that mysterious structures were discovered on the far side of the moon when the United States was mapping its surface before the 1969 lunar landing. Those photos too were culled out of the public record.”

Without naming his sources, and only giving photos and videos to indirectly support his claim, it would be easy to dismiss Duff. No so fast according to Kerry Cassidy from Project Camelot who writes:

Veterans Today is disclosing right on time and at the level to which they feel their audience 'can handle the truth'.  Mixed in with proper doses of disinfo and misdirects.  But nonetheless.  It is happening.

 Cassidy also doesn't name her sources for supporting Duff's claims. One thing is clear, disinformation is certainly a part of Duff's article. One tidbit involves yours truly. Citing Dark Government Duff writes:

 And then there’s the publication, The Canadian that reports: “Dr. Micheal Salla has indicated that there is a Military Industrial Extraterrestrial Complex or MIEC, and that Earth is being assimilated by an alien agenda which also operates on Earth’s Moon.”

Let me set the record straight here. It is true that I have written about a Military Industrial Extraterrestrial Complex or MIEC which derives from a classified set of agreements and cooperation between select government/military/corporate entities and some extraterrestrial groups.  An alien agenda based on an assimilation program, however, is not something I have claimed as alleged by the Canadian. That is something that Dr David Jacobs and Budd Hopkins have discussed in relation to Gray extraterrestrials conducting an extensive hybridization program. In contrast, I have stated repeatedly that the evidence points to most extraterrestrial groups being highly ethical and taking a non-interventionist approach to human affairs. Most extraterrestrials have been silently assisting humanity by a variety of consciousness raising activities and limited human contacts that I have recently discussed at length. One cannot speak of a single alien agenda, since there are many alien groups visiting earth, some of which are directly competing against each other. This would not be the first time that the Canadian has misrepresented my writing in a way that undermines my credibility as a researcher. Unfortunately, both DarkGovernment and Veterans Today have perpetuated the inaccuracy or disinformation to promote the view that I support the belief in a single alien agenda of assimilation.

Duff’s claims are extraordinary, and may well be a mix of genuine facts and disinformation. If Congress has indeed begun holding secret hearings on alien bases on the moon, that would be a welcome development. Perhaps Donna Hare, Karl Wolf and Ken Johnston are testifying right now as of this writing. Perhaps, Duff has got it all wrong. One day, however, the truth about alien bases on the moon will be conclusively determined, and the US Congress will hold hearings about how long and why evidence was withheld for so long.

Prime Minister Medvedev reveals secrets about ETs among us

Prime Minister Medvedev reveals extraterrestrials secrets in Russian MIB documentary

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s off-air comments that Russian Presidents are given a secret file about extraterrestrials living among us created much media interest. Most news reports claimed that Medvedev was simply joking. His apparent reference to the Men In Black movie as a source of information on a super secret agency that monitors extraterrestrials on Earth was commonly cited as key evidence that he was in fact joking.  The reasoning is that no political leader would refer reporters to a comedy to clarify national policy. It has now emerged that Medvedev was not referring to the Men in Black comedy after all, but to a recent Russian television documentary titled “Men in Black” that reveals many details about an extensive cover up of extraterrestrial life visiting Earth.

After completing an on-air interview with five television reporters on December 7, 2012, Prime Minister Medvedev continued to respond to reporters and made some off-air comments without realizing that the microphone was still on. He was then asked by one reporter if “the president is handed secret files on aliens when he receives the briefcase needed to activate Russia's nuclear arsenal,” Medvedev responded:

Along with the briefcase with nuclear codes, the president of the country is given a special ‘top secret’ folder. This folder in its entirety contains information about aliens who visited our planet… Along with this, you are given a report of the absolutely secret special service that exercises control over aliens on the territory of our country… More detailed information on this topic you can get from a well-known movie called Men In Black… I will not tell you how many of them are among us because it may cause panic.

After giving his detailed comments to the reporter on extraterrestrials, Medvedev was translated as follows in a Reuter’s report: “More detailed information on this topic you can get from a well-known movie called ‘Men In Black'”.  The Reuters translation was used by a number of media sources in concluding that Medvedev was joking, and his comments needed to be taken with a grain of salt. For example, one reporter said:

… before Russian alien conspiracy theorists can say “told you so,” the Russian PM quickly indicated that his comment was a joke. “More detailed information on this topic you can get from a well-known movie called ‘Men In Black,'” he said.

Another reporter subtitled his article: “Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev makes a crack about aliens, and conspiracists promptly lose their minds.”

However, a more accurate translation of what Medvedev actually said about the Men in Black phenomenon was: “You can receive more detailed information having watched the documentary film of the same name.”  So Medvedev was referring to a Russian “documentary film” titled Men in Black, not the Hollywood blockbuster by the same name. Since the Russian documentary was recent and not well known outside of Russia, most Western media accepted the Reuter’s translation. The documentary was translated into English and released on Youtube on December 18, 2012.

It’s true that while Medvedev was giving his detailed response to a female reporter’s question on extraterrestrial life, the reporter was broadly smiling, and other reporters could be heard laughing in the background. Yet Medvedev appeared very serious throughout his elaborate response, and did not appear to be joking. So was Medvedev referring to the Men in Black Hollywood comedy to, at best, reveal valid information to the reporter using dry humor? Or was Medvedev instead giving a candid admission about Russian Presidents being given a secret briefing paper on a secret agency created to monitor extraterrestrials living among us, and referring to a recent Russian documentary for the reporter to follow up?

In the Russian Men In Black (MIB) documentary, a number of prominent UFO cases in Russia and the USA are discussed. The Roswell UFO crash is covered, along with a number of extraterrestrial abduction cases, and UFOs disabling nuclear weapons facilities. The documentary examines testimony that extraterrestrial bases have been established on Earth, and that some are in restricted US military areas with the full knowledge of the Pentagon. The documentary even goes on to seriously discuss President Eisenhower’s alleged meeting with extraterrestrials, where agreements were reached with some of the visitors giving them permission to take some of the Earth’s resources in exchange for advanced technology. If Medvedev wanted the female Russian reporter to explore some of the information he was revealing, then it makes sense that he was in fact referring to the Russian MIB documentary.

This leads to an incredible conclusion. If Medvedev was in fact referring to the Russian MIB documentary, then he was implicitly endorsing information that extraterrestrials have established bases on remote US military facilities with Pentagon approval. Even more startling is that Medvedev was endorsing the claim that President Eisenhower had in fact met with extraterrestrials, and reached agreements for advanced technologies to be traded for planetary resources. Initial media reports of Prime Minister Medvedev’s off-air comments were simply unaware of a Russian documentary titled Men In Black, and wrongly concluded that he was referring to the MIB comedy. As the translated text of his comments now makes clear, Medvedev was referring to a Russian documentary exposing the Men in Black phenomenon, and was candidly advising the Russian reporter to investigate some of the claims found in it to learn about a worldwide cover up of extraterrestrials among us.

On Friday, December 7, the current Russian Prime Minister and former President, Dmitry Medvedev, made some startling off-air comments to reporters while his microphone was still switched on. He was asked whether the President is given any secret files on extraterrestrials while in office. In his responses, Medvedev not only confided that extraterrestrials are visiting the Earth, but that some are actually living among us. He went even further to say that the Hollywood comedy, Men in Black, depicting a secret government agency monitoring extraterrestrials on Earth, has a factual basis to it. While the comments appear to be playful responses to a reporter’s off-beat question, they raise questions over exactly how much truth was being revealed by Medvedev. Given that Medvedev’s responses were said off-air, without him realizing that his microphone was still recording, they at face value give credence to claims that extraterrestrials are not only visiting our world, but are even living among us.

After completing an on-air interview with five television reporters, Prime Minister Medvedev continued to respond to reporters and made some off-air comments without realizing that the microphone was still on. His off-air comments were more frank about his real feelings on recent political developments in Russia where authorities were reigning in civil liberties. He was then asked by one reporter if “the president is handed secret files on aliens when he receives the briefcase needed to activate Russia's nuclear arsenal,” Medvedev responded:

Along with the briefcase with nuclear codes, the president of the country is given a special 'top secret' folder. This folder in its entirety contains information about aliens who visited our planet… Along with this, you are given a report of the absolutely secret special service that exercises control over aliens on the territory of our country… More detailed information on this topic you can get from a well-known movie called Men In Black… I will not tell you how many of them are among us because it may cause panic,

Medvedev’s comments are not the first time a prominent Russian official has spoken out about extraterrestrial life while giving television interviews. In an extraordinary television interview aired in May 2010, the Governor of the Russian Republic of Kalmykia, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov who was also President of the World Chess Federation, claimed that in 1997 he was taken from his penthouse apartment on board an extraterrestrial vehicle. Ilyumzhinov claimed that the extraterrestrials he met were humanoid and gave him a tour of their ship, and even took him to another world.

There has long been claims that not only have extraterrestrials been visiting our world, but have actually lived among us. A well documented case in Italy called Amicizia (Friendship) revealed that more than 100 individuals, including senior public officials, had met with a group of extraterrestrials with bases in the Italian peninsula and the Adriatic Sea over a 22 year period from 1956 to 1978. Significantly, these extraterrestrials were secretly monitored by NATO authorities who did not interfere with private citizens meeting with and providing supplies to the extraterrestrials. The Friendship case, if genuine, suggests that something like the official agency created to monitor extraterrestrials on earth depicted in the Men In Black movies, is based in fact. Certainly, Prime Minister Medvedev appears to think that such a “secret special service” exists.

While it can be claimed that Medvedev was giving a playful response to an off-beat reporter question, the full context of his off-air remarks suggest he was being candid on a range of topics, including extraterrestrial life. Plausible deniability certainly comes to mind when trying to analyze Medvedev’s frank off-air comments. This raises the intriguing possibility that Medvedev’s comments were orchestrated with prior approval to reveal facts to the Russian public that authorities are not yet able to officially announce to the world – extraterrestrials live among us.

In Tuesday's U.S. Presidential election, Barack Obama won a narrow but clear victory over his Republican opponent. Democrats held on to their Senate majority, and Republicans maintained control over the House of Representatives. The next twelve months or so will be when Obama moves forward with his most ambitious re-election policies before the 2014 mid-term elections return the United States again to the hyper-partisan politics that produced gridlock for the last two years. Republican control over the House will ensure that there is plenty of opposition to much of Obama’s legislative agenda. This will not be the case though with immigration reform to finally deal with the question of illegal aliens. Severely punished by the Latino vote, Republicans are sure to give bipartisan support to Obama in passing a new DREAM Act to legalize the status of young illegal aliens raised in the USA. What however of another type of illegal alien claimed to be visiting the USA? Does UFO extraterrestrial disclosure figure at all in Obama’s political agenda?

When Obama first became President there were many hopeful signs that his push for more transparent and accountable government would translate into greater openness where the truth would finally come out about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. His appointment of Hillary Clinton to Secretary of State fueled rumors that her documented interest in UFOs in the Clinton administration would lead to some startling disclosures. Whistleblowers were ready to come forward to testify about a host of illegal government activities if they were given protection to reveal their secrets. This culminated in the belief that disclosure of extraterrestrial life was imminent early in the Obama administration. Four years later, those early hopes look positively naïve. Government transparency did not open up national security archives to researchers, and whistleblower protection did not happen after all. The Obama administration went on the record to disavow any interest in investigating claims that the Roswell crash really involved otherworldly UFOs. There was no disclosure of extraterrestrial life visiting our world.

What has changed, four years after Obama’s first Presidential election, is that the world is better prepared for accepting that extraterrestrial life exists. Here are three scenarios of how Obama might announce the existence of alien life during his second term of office.

Scenario 1 – Alien life found on exoplanets. The deployment of advanced space telescopes such as NASA's Kepler Mission, has led to the discovery of hundreds of exoplanets. This has revolutionized the scientific community. The question, “do habitable conditions for life exist elsewhere in the galaxy?” has been decisively answered in the affirmative. Statistics tell us that some, if not many, of the billions of exoplanets projected to exist in our galaxy alone, are sure to host some form of life. The world’s foremost scientists are now openly discussing the scientific and social consequences of extraterrestrial life being discovered. The question is now “when” rather than “if” extraterrestrial life will be discovered by the next generation of space telescopes used to scan the galaxy.  The new Obama administration will continue to fund NASA scientific missions, making it possible that at some point in his second term, he can announce that we are not alone in the galaxy.

Scenario 2 – Roswell Crash really did happen. This scenario concerns claims that extraterrestrials are visiting us now and select government agencies have been covering this up since at least July, 1947, when the famous Roswell crash incident occurred. As most are aware, the US Army Air Corps released a statement on July 8 that a flying saucer had crashed, but retracted it hours later. Chase Brandon, a former CIA clandestine officer and public relations representative has claimed that he saw a file in the CIA historical archive that settled any personal doubt he had that the Roswell flying saucer crash really did involve extraterrestrial life and technology. Chase’s claims echo those of Lt. Col. Philip Corso, who led the Foreign Technology Desk at the US Army Research and Development department. Corso claims the U.S. Army had a filing cabinet with material from the Roswell crash that was leaked to private industry to spark technological development. During Obama’s second term, more material/evidence from the Roswell crash may leak, and/or witnesses come forward to reveal that extraterrestrial technology was indeed recovered. Several petitions have been launched with the Obama White House to achieve this goal.

Scenario 3 – (Contrived) War of the Worlds. There have been claims by Gordon Duff, a senior editor of Veterans Today, John Kettler and others of secret battles in the Pacific Ocean and Antarctica between a coalition of US-led Naval forces and extraterrestrials based in undersea bases. So far, there has not been any hard evidence to support such claims, only anonymous sources that are not revealed by Duff, et al. A Stalin era intelligence file released in 1991 revealed that the Admiral Byrd’s Antarctic expedition, Operation Highjump, did encounter and battle with a mysterious UFO force in early 1947. A succession of Hollywood blockbusters, Battleship, Battle Los Angeles, and the Avengers all focus on an extraterrestrial invasion theme. Is the public being conditioned to accept the possibility of an extraterrestrial invasion for a contrived national security crisis? According to former chief Apollo scientist, Werner Von Braun, a contrived alien invasion has been planned for several decades. Could President Obama one day find himself publicly responding to a national security crisis where US and allied military forces are under (a contrived) attack from an alien presence?  

Any of the above or alternative scenarios might occur in the next year, or before the end of Obama’s second term of office in January 2017 – so what would happen? Obama’s award of the Nobel Peace Prize; mixed racial heritage; and an eclectic religious upbringing with a Christian mother, a Muslim father and stepfather, and six years spent in Muslim Indonesia as a youth, make him ideally suited to become a highly popular world leader.If it was decided that the existence of extraterrestrial life – due to scientific discovery and/or political necessity – was to be announced to the world, then President Obama would be the ideal candidate for the job.

Extraterrestrial disclosure would very likely overcome national differences and lead to rapid political unification at a planetary level, as President Reagan speculated in a General Assembly speech at the United Nations in 1987. We could very quickly expect world-wide planetary elections for national citizens to be represented in direct dealings with Galactic civilizations. This could be achieved either through significant reform of the United Nations (which currently represents “states” and not “people”), or through the creation of a “United Earth” sovereign body representing the people of Earth. In either case, any formal announcement by President Obama of the existence of extraterrestrial life would start a series of events where he would predictably take a more global leadership role in representing the people of Earth in negotiations with galactic visitors. So when President Obama and his bipartisan Republican allies pass a revamped DREAM act for illegal aliens, let’s dream of what would happen if the existence of off-planet aliens were also to announced by the White House sometime in the next four years.
