Pope endorses evolution of ET life

Pope endorses evolution of ET life

In a statement before the Pontifical Academy of Sciences on October 27, Pope Francis I endorsed the view that extraterrestrial life – which he refers to as “beings of the universe” – has evolved in ways that is consistent with the plans of “God the creator.” He explained how the Catholic Church views the Big Bang and evolution as scientific processes underpinned by “the plan of the creator.” Pope Francis has officially moved the Catholic Church away from the idea of “God the creator” as a magician or demiurge creating the universe in an act of omnipotence over six days, to a more scientific view that God works mysteriously behind the scenes planning the evolution of life on Earth and the Universe. The Pope’s statement reveals his view that intelligent extraterrestrial life has evolved in a manner that is consistent with “the plan of the creator,” thereby making it possible for extraterrestrials to act in ways that further this plan. The Pope’s statement is a surprising endorsement of the view that the activities of intelligent extraterrestrial life in the universe can be part of a universal plan by “God the creator”. Consequently, Pope Francis’s statement is preparing the Catholic world that extraterrestrial life visiting our world in UFOs may be part of “the plan of the creator.”

Pope Francis began his remarkable statement by first dismissing the simplistic idea behind creationism where God created the universe in six days and nights:

When we read in Genesis the account of Creation, we risk imagining God as a magician, with a wand able to make everything. But it is not so.

 He instead endorsed the more evolutionary friendly view that “God the creator” mysteriously works through nature:

God and Christ walk with us and are also present in nature… the scientist must be motivated by the confidence that nature hides, in her evolutionary mechanisms, potentialities for intelligence and freedom to discover and realize, to achieve the development that is in the plan of the creator.

The Pope went on to discuss the evolution of intelligent extraterrestrial life which he referred to as “beings of the universe”:

He created beings and allowed them to develop according to the internal laws that he gave to each one, so that they were able to develop and to arrive and their fullness of being. He gave autonomy to the beings of the universe at the same time at which he assured them of his continuous presence, giving being to every reality. And so creation continued for centuries and centuries, millennia and millennia, until it became which we know today, precisely because God is not a demiurge or a magician, but the creator who gives being to all things.

The Pope’s statement explicitly endorses the view that intelligent extraterrestrial life may have evolved on many different worlds, and achieved a “fullness of being” and “autonomy” that makes them vital parts of “the plan of the creator.”  This suggests that the activities of intelligent extraterrestrial life throughout the universe can be supported by the Catholic Church as consistent with the plan of “God the creator.”

It is important not to underestimate the magnitude of the Pope’s statement since it supports radical ideas of intelligent design such as extraterrestrial intervention in human history may be part of “the plan of the creator.”  For example, researchers such as Zecharia Sitchin and Arthur David Horn have claimed that genetic manipulation by intelligent extraterrestrials has occurred on early earthly life forms and primates. This radical version of intelligent design is now compatible with Catholic Church teachings according to the Pope’s statement. Furthermore, the ubiquitous UFO phenomenon that suggests extraterrestrial life is visiting and interacting with our world, may also be part of the plan of “God the creator.” The Pope’s October 27 statement is evidence that the Catholic Church is preparing the world for major developments concerning the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial life.

Did NASA live video capture extraterrestrial life during spacewalk?

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in exonews, science and technology

space bug near ISS

space bug near ISSOn October 22 during a spacewalk by two Russian astronauts, the International Space Station (ISS) live feed showed a luminescent UFO briefly fly nearby. The astronauts had just jettisoned two parts of the ISS that had been removed, and the live feed showed the objects slowing falling towards the earth. As the second object is jettisoned, the UFO appears and briefly maneuvers near it. The luminescent UFO does not appear to be space debris as it clearly changes direction several times. It appears to be under intelligent control suggesting either a luminescent life form indigenous to outer space, or an extraterrestrial vehicle of some kind.

The first possibility of an extraterrestrial life form that can survive in outer space was suggested in a brief video analysis of the UFO conducted by Third Phase of Moon. It was proposed that the UFO was some kind of insect. The idea of space bugs existing in outer space received a boost on August 19, 2014 after Russians scientists announced the results of a yearlong study of a strange substance that had been obscuring the windows of the ISS that had been collected by astronauts during a prior spacewalk. Russian scientists announced that the substance was a form of sea plankton growing on the windows of the ISS. Flying at an approximate altitude of 200 miles, it is extremely unlikely that sea plankton could be carried so high by air currents. Nevertheless, the sea plankton on the ISS was growing, suggesting that it was a form of plankton indigenous to outer space rather than carried into space from the Earth’s surface.

Another possibility is that the luminescent object is an extraterrestrial spacecraft. If so, it would be yet another incident of spacewalking astronauts being monitored by extraterrestrial craft. October 7 was another incident of spacewalking astronauts being captured on the ISS live feed with a UFO nearby that appeared to be observing ISS activities. The UFO was elliptical in shape and stationary relative to the ISS.

The ISS live feed is clear evidence that something other than space debris was briefly captured on video during a spacewalking mission. The video is very suggestive of some form of indigenous space life, or an extraterrestrial vehicle, closely monitoring the ISS and the spacewalking astronauts.

Two cigar shaped UFOs appear near the International Space Station

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in exonews, galactic diplomacy

2 UFOs near ISS

2 UFOs near ISS

Newly released video from the International Space Station’s (ISS) Live Stream shows what appears to be two cigar shaped UFOs near the ISS. The UFOs briefly appear in the video stream before there is a signal interruption. When the live stream resumes the UFOs are gone. The incident was uploaded to Youtube on October 21 and has already begun generating much discussion. It is difficult to estimate the size of the UFOs but previous sightings of similar cigar shaped objects have been estimated to be aircraft carrier sized, big enough to host smaller UFO craft. Leading astronomers and astrobiologists are now telling us that the cosmos is teeming with exoplanets capable of hosting intelligent life, and we need to prepare for its discovery. This leads to the question, are extraterrestrial ships monitoring the ISS?

The latest video incident follows a string of UFOs being captured by the ISS live stream. On October 7, a UFO appeared near two space walking astronauts. The object was also elliptical or cigar shaped, and appeared to be monitoring the ISS. On January 29, 2014 the live stream showed a yellow elliptical UFO that appeared to actually have docked with the ISS. This raised remarkable possibility that the ISS was being visited by unknown astronauts from a classified military program, or even extraterrestrials.

The main objection against past UFO sightings captured on the ISS live camera feed is that these are lensflares caused by the sun or a strong light source nearby as it hits the camera lens. In the live video feed of the two cigar shaped UFOs, there is no significant change in the ambient light as the UFOs slowly appear in the video. If the UFOs were caused by a lensflare, then their appearance would be marked by a clear change in the ambient light. Nor do the UFO appear to be natural phenomena occurring in the Earth’s atmosphere or surface.

If the two UFOs are not caused by a lensflare, camera malfunction or other natural phenomena, what are they? The UFOs may be intelligently guided cigar shaped spacecraft that have been reported by military and government whistleblowers to be very large in size.

One possible explanation is that they belong to a secret space fleet. Another explanation is that the UFOs are extraterrestrial in origin. As far back as the early 1950s, cigar shaped UFO have been regularly sighted and photographed. The most famous photographs were taken by George Adamski who filmed smaller scout ships emerging from larger cigar shaped UFOs near the moon. In a related 1952 incident, Adamski and six witnesses claimed to have sighted a large cigar shaped UFO fly overhead. It was soon followed by a smaller “scoutcraft” that landed near Adamski, who met the extraterrestrial pilot.

The International Space Station’s live camera feed continues to capture strange nearby objects through its various external camera systems. Some of these objects might be explained away as lens flares or natural phenomena. Not so however for all other incidents that likely include the two cigar shaped UFOs captured  on October 21. If these two UFOs are under intelligent control, they could be spacecraft from a secret space program or from an extraterrestrial intelligence. If extraterrestrials are indeed monitoring the ISS, they may be allowing their spacecraft to be captured on video in a First Contact scenario.

Kingdom of Hawaii approves protocols for extraterrestrial contact

Kingdom of Hawaii approves extraterrestrial contact protocols

On Sept 7, 2014, political representatives of the Reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii formally approved a set of Contact Protocols for extraterrestrial visitors to Hawaii’s Star Visitor Sanctuary in the Puna region of the Big Island of Hawaii. The Sanctuary was first proposed in a Declaration that was approved by five representatives from the Reinstated Kingdom on May 28, 2014. The Declaration is an official invitation to extraterrestrials, aka “Star Visitors,” to appear and meet with representatives of the Kingdom of Hawaii and the general public at the Sanctuary. The newly approved Contact Protocols are the first time representatives of a sovereign state have publicly approved official measures in response to the appearance and/or contact with extraterrestrial life.

The Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary was formally launched on June 27 by Naliko Markel, the Kingdom’s Minister for the Interior at a ceremony attended by up to 200 people that participated in native Hawaiian traditions for blessing the designated land for its special purpose of hosting “Star Visitors” to Earth. Coincidentally, the nearby Pu’u O’o crater began a new lava flow on the same day of the launch as though signaling the volcano goddess Pele’s support for the Kingdom’s initiative.

The seven Contact Protocols outline the formal steps the Kingdom of Hawaii will take for various ways extraterrestrial visitors may appear and/or interact with Kingdom representatives and the general public. The Protocols use an extraterrestrial contact classification system first proposed by former USAF Project Bluebook consultant Dr Allen Hynek that was popularized in the film, Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind. The protocols describe four distinct ways in which Star Visitors can interact with Kingdom of Hawaii Representatives and the general public.

A close encounter of the first kind is a sighting of an extraterrestrial vehicle at a distance of less than 500 feet. A close encounter of the second kind is where there is physical evidence of a landing by an extraterrestrial vehicle. A close encounter of the 3rd kind involves sighting an extraterrestrial being. Finally, a Close encounter of the fourth kind represents direct physical contact with extraterrestrial entities.

The protocols are based on the legal authority of the Reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii to establish diplomatic relations with Star Visitors in conformity with Hawaiian traditions and history as a sovereign state. The Contact Protocols authorize the creation of a delegation comprising Kingdom of Hawaii officials and experts that will meet with extraterrestrial visitors. The delegation will issue summaries of various forms of contact on a website, and coordinate with members of the general public having a close encounter. In the case of a contact event with significant global public interest, a full report will be prepared that will be submitted to the United Nations Secretary General and the General Assembly.

The Kingdom of Hawaii Contact Protocols are a significant development from earlier efforts by astronomical organizations to develop protocols for the discovery of extraterrestrial life through radio signals. The best known of these is SETI’s “Protocols for an ETI Signal Detection” that outlines international coordination when radio signals from an extraterrestrial intelligence are detected. The SETI protocols do not however cover the contingencies raised by extraterrestrials actually visiting, flying over and/or landing on Earth.

The Kingdom of Hawaii was the first sovereign state to proclaim its status as a neutral state in 1854. Now the Kingdom can add to its list of firsts, a set of extraterrestrial contact protocols that have been adopted by political representatives of a sovereign state. The Hawaii Contact Protocols provide a model that can be used by other members of the international community preparing for a future where extraterrestrials show up and interact with humanity.

Science, Politics & Spirituality of extraterrestrial civilizations [Updated]

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in exopolitics research, science and technology

Scienc Spirituality Politics

Course begins on September 15, 2014

The discovery of exoplanets in the habitable regions of their suns, according to the world’s leading astrophysicists, makes the existence of extraterrestrial life a foregone conclusion. Astronomical observations of exoplanets has stimulated scientific conferences questioning, for the first time, the societal and political implications of intelligent life existing somewhere in the far reaches of space. For example, a September 18-19 Symposium sponsored by NASA and the Library of Congress brings together some of the worlds leading astrobiologists to discuss ways of preparing the public for the discovery of extraterrestrial life. According to astrophysicists such as Stephen Hawking, extraterrestrials would most likely be predatory in nature and the best response to contact would be to equip the world’s military to defend humanity.

For others, convinced that extraterrestrials have been visiting humanity since the dawn of the nuclear age, scientists are late comers to the party. A host of whistleblowers, experiencers and government documents have revealed, according to UFO and “exopolitics” researchers that extraterrestrials are already here. Not only have extraterrestrials been silently watching us, but advanced technologies have been developed to monitor, intercept and even shoot down their spacecraft. All this has been done secretly for national security reasons if the evidence is to be believed.  So what would extraterrestrials be like? What would be their science, politics and spirituality?

There have been a few ad hoc attempts to answer such questions. As far as the astrophysics/astrobiological community is concerned, there have been conferences by the Royal Society and the Pontifical Academy of Sciences which tackled some of these questions. In a conference proceedings paper, the Royal Society’s Dr Martin Dominik and Prof John C. Zarnecki endorsed studying the societal aspects of any discovery of extraterrestrial life. They stressed the importance of determining the possible motivations of extraterrestrial life:

The detection and further study of extra-terrestrial life will fundamentally challenge our view of nature, including ourselves, and therefore the field of astrobiology can hardly be isolated from its societal context, including philosophical, ethical and theological perspectives. With the detection of extra-terrestrial life being technically feasible, one needs to address whether perceived societal benefits command us to search for it, or whether such an endeavor may rather turn out to be a threat to our own existence

A popular online course on astrobiology asks at the end of a five week program: “What are the possibilities for intelligent life elsewhere? How would we deal with contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence and what would be the impact on society? Who would represent Earth?”

The best attempt to systematically address questions concerning the science of extraterrestrial civilizations has been undertaken by Professor Michio Kaku from Columbia University. Kaku has used a typology of hypothetical extraterrestrial civilizations based on energy consumption first developed by Soviet Astronomer, Nikoli Kardarshev in 1964. In the “The Physics of Extraterrestrial Civilizations” and “The Physics of Interstellar Travel,” Kaku offers insightful analyses of how energy consumption of extraterrestrial civilizations reveals much about their possible science, and spacefaring abilities.

 

Kaku’s and Kardashev’s analyses, predictably exclude the extensive but controversial body of evidence examined by UFO/expolitics researchers that extraterrestrials are visiting us now.  This is understandable if not without criticism by those seriously investigating such evidence. The astrophysics/astrobiological community only accepts data that can be scientifically tested and replicated in a way that leaves no doubt as to its veracity and of any conclusions drawn. Evidence that extraterrestrials are currently visiting us cannot be so tested and replicated according to normal scientific protocols; since it is subject to controversy, missing key data, government denial, witness accuracy, etc. However, what if the excluded evidence could tell us something about the politics and spirituality of extraterrestrials that could be matched up with the best scientific speculations over their science? Wouldn’t it be worth examining such evidence even if it wasn’t conclusive? There have been attempts to do so.

A 2008 conference presentation by the author did examine evidence of extraterrestrial visitation using the typology first developed by Kardeshev and later used by Kaku. The conclusions are startling. One can get a rough idea of the science, politics and science of extraterrestrial civilizations. The implications are enormous. Once we understand the science, politics, and spirituality of extraterrestrial civilizations, we can make informed choices about how to best resolve global problems. Furthermore, we can transform the Earth using advanced extraterrestrial knowledge and technologies. The video of my 2008 conference presentation is available here or below for free viewing.

For those wanting to dive deeper into the available literature and evidence concerning extraterrestrial science, politics and spirituality, then I recommend the following online course (click here) which starts on September 15, and is offered through the Exopolitics Institute. 

The discovery of exoplanets has already transformed the astrophysics and astrobiological communities with physical evidence that the Earth is not the only habitable planet in our galaxy. If life can “spontaneously” develop here, then it could do so anywhere – perhaps on one of the exoplanets already discovered. Over time, intelligent life would evolve and like humanity, develop a keen interest in visiting other worlds. Learning a little about what extraterrestrial science, politics and spirituality could be like is a wise move even for those still skeptical that intelligent alien life exists.

Mars Rover image of thigh bone sparks media frenzy & NASA response

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in science and technology

NASA Source Image of thigh bone

NASA Source Image of thigh boneOn August 14, the Mars Curiosity Rover photographed an object that appears to be a thigh bone on the Martian surface. When the photo was released by NASA’s JPL affiliate a few days later, initial observers claimed that the object was a fossilized bone fragment. The first thigh fossil claims on August 20 generated much media attention and public controversy with coverage by major media outlets such as the Huffington Post and Britain’s Daily Mirror In an unusually quick response, NASA replied to the growing controversy on August 21 by claiming that the object was little more than a rock. Today, Science.com released a story backing NASA’s claim that the photo is nothing more than a rock. Not so according to a growing number of independent researchers that have uncovered past Curiosity Rover images of what appear to be different life forms on the Mars surface.

The image was taken by Curiosity Rover’s Mastcam which provides high resolution panoramic color images of the Mars environment. ­­ Among the first observers of the thigh looking object was the popular website UFO Blogger that released a post on August 20 claiming:

After fossilized spine and finger now NASA Curiosity on August 14, 2014 photographed fossilized thigh bone-like object on Mars.

As major media sources began giving UFO Blogger claims wide coverage, NASA quickly released a statement on August 21 dismissing the notion that the object is a thigh bone:

No bones about it! Seen by Mars rover Curiosity using its MastCam, this Mars rock may look like a femur thigh bone. Mission science team members think its shape is likely sculpted by erosion, either wind or water. If life ever existed on Mars, scientists expect that it would be small simple life forms called microbes. Mars likely never had enough oxygen in its atmosphere and elsewhere to support more complex organisms. Thus, large fossils are not likely.

While Space.com and other major media outlets appear satisfied by NASA’s explanation, independent researchers disagree. In fact, past Mars Rover images show what clearly appear to be animals roving the Mars surface.

In August February 2013, for example, a Curiosity Rover photo showed what appeared to be a duck on Mars. Another Rover Curiosity image taken in February 2013, showed what looked like a lizard on the Mars surface. In yet another photo from Curiosity Rover captured on September 2012, a squirrel appears to be on Mars. Finally, in a series of five images captured by the Spirit Rover in 2009, an object clearly appears to have moved; curiously, NASA experts refused to comment.

NASA’s explanation that all the above images are merely rocks appearing to be animals or fossils generates heated controversy not only in the general public, but among NASA scientists themselves. Richard Hoover worked for NASA as an astrobiologist for 46 years, and claims that in 2004, the Mars Rover, Opportunity photographed what clearly looked like the fossilized remains of a crinoid, a marine animal that looks like a sea lily. Hoover showed it to colleagues who immediately recognized the object as a crinoid. However, rather than examine the exciting possibility that Opportunity had photographed the fossilized remains of a living organism, Hoover said that less than four hours after taking the photo, Opportunity’s rock abrasion tool ground the area where the possible fossil lay into dust. He asked David McKay, the former chief astrobiologist at the Johnson Space Center, why this had been done. According to Hoover, the answer he received was less than satisfactory. Hoover’s conclusion was that senior NASA scientists were actively destroying evidence of Martian fossils.

If animals do roam the Martian surface, as Mars Rover photographs suggest, then bone fossils and bone fragments will also likely be detected on the Mars surface as Hoover claims. Photographic and whistleblower evidence suggest that NASA’s explanations that Mars Rover images are nothing more than rocks, appear to be obfuscations designed to mislead the general public about the true composition of the Mars atmosphere and of life on Mars.

Vatican preparing statement on extraterrestrial life

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in religion

Vatican-mothership-Pope Francis
Vatican-mothership-Pope FrancisPope Francis is reportedly preparing a major world statement about extraterrestrial life and its theological implications. Rosana Ubanell from Voxxi News today reported that due to advances in scientific detection methods for the discovery of extraterrestrial life, Pope Francis wants to be ready with a statement about “First Contact”. Ubanell reports that details have yet to be officially announced but that the Vatican’s interest in extraterrestrial life is well documented through recent astrobiology conferences the Vatican Observatory has sponsored or participated in. Father Guy Consolmagno, a Jesuit astronomer and one of the leading Catholic proponents for preparing for the scientific discovery of extraterrestrial life, on July 18, won the Carl Sagan science medal from the American Astronomical Society. Pope Francis, a fellow Jesuit, regularly consults with Consolmagno and other leading Vatican astronomers about scientific issues. It is likely that Pope Francis is preparing an “Urbi et Orbi” speech – Latin for “to the city [of Rome] and the world” – about First Contact with extraterrestrial life.

The Vatican’s scientific interest in extraterrestrial life was publicly revealed for the first time in May 2008 when the head of the Vatican Observatory, Fr Gabriel Funes, also a Jesuit, gave an interview to the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano. Funes made a series of startling statements about how extraterrestrial life is likely to be more ethically evolved than humans, and can be welcomed as brothers. In his interview, which was titled “The extraterrestrial is my brother,” Funes said that intelligent extraterrestrial life may not have experienced a ‘fall’, and may be “free from Original Sin … [remaining] in full friendship with their creator.” This makes it possible to regard them as ‘our brothers’ as Funes explained:

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…
Most importantly, Funes’ statement makes possible the idea that Christianity can be exported to extraterrestrial worlds that have not experienced a ‘fall’ and are free from original sin.

Just over a year after his interview, Funes was the organizer of the first ever Astrobiology Symposium held by Pontifical Academy of Sciences in November 2009. Consolmagno and Funes have ever since played leading roles for the Vatican Observatory in presenting a theological perspective on the discovery of extraterrestrial life. Most importantly, both have been leading advisors to Pope Francis about scientific issues concerning the discovery of extraterrestrial life.

What is likely to be the content of Pope Francis’ upcoming statement or possible “Urbi et Orbi” speech about alien life? An important clue is a forthcoming presentation by Fr. Consolmagno at a September 18-19, 2014, astrobiology symposium organized by NASA and the Library of Congress that is titled: “Preparing for Discovery: A Rational Approach to the Implications of Finding Microbial, Complex or Intelligent Life Beyond Earth.”

Consolmagno is a featured presenter and will discuss the theological implications of discovering alien life. His topic, “Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?” suggests that Pope Francis agrees that extraterrestrials are capable of the higher ethics involved in understanding the Christian message and becoming Christians.

If Pope Francis is indeed preparing a statement about extraterrestrial life, it is likely to emphasize that there is no incompatibility in Christian teachings with a belief in extraterrestrial life as Fr. Funes proposed in May 2008. More importantly, Pope Francis is likely to emphasize themes of extraterrestrials: not sharing in original sin; being more ethically evolved; and being capable of sharing the Christian message, and being our brothers.

Not all will welcome a statement from Pope Francis advocating extraterrestrials as brothers and worthy of being baptized into the Christian faith. According to Chris Putnam and Tom Horn, authors of Exovaticana, Pope Francis I is preparing to lead the Catholic Church to embrace aliens as “brothers in Christ” – reflective of the 1950s and 1960s contactee reports of benevolent “space brothers.” Putnam’s and Horn’s Exovaticana portends a future religious war between those accepting extraterrestrials as “brothers in Christ” and those believing them to be returning demons about to enslave us. Despite the extensive scholarship found in Exovaticana, it unfortunately skews data towards an overly negative assessment of the motivations of extraterrestrial visitors. Thankfully, the Vatican’s evolving public position, as reflected by statements from its leading astronomers, shows a far more enlightened stance on how to consider the discovery of alien life from a theological perspective. A statement or “Urbi et Orbi” speech from Pope Francis expounding on various themes associated with the view that extraterrestrials are potential “brothers in Christ’ is a welcome position to take on a controversial issue with major world significance.

Secret US alien agreements may be valid under international law

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in galactic diplomacy

Secret ET Agreements-1050 Secret ET Agreements-1050

The legitimacy of secret agreements between the U.S. Government and alien civilizations may be valid under both U.S. and international law contrary to widespread public perceptions. This shocking conclusion has emerged from legal research into the status of agreements reached by a sitting US. President with the chief executive officer of a foreign power.

According to whistleblower testimonies that have been documented in the book, Galactic Diplomacy: Getting to Yes with ET, President Dwight Eisenhower met with and reached agreements with representatives of at least two extraterrestrial civilizations. According to Galactic Diplomacy, these secret agreements lacked legitimacy since they were never ratified by the U.S. Senate as required by the U.S. Constitution. Article II.2, of the Constitution requires that any international treaty signed by the Executive branch needs the advice and consent of two thirds of the U.S. Senate:
The President … shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur.
Consequently, it was reasoned the agreements reached between President Eisenhower and the chief executive of an extraterrestrial delegation were questionable under U.S. law. At best, it was reasoned that they were quasi-legal since they were only signed but not ratified as constitutionally required by Article 2.II:
… this constitutional provision [2.II] has been bypassed by a series of executive orders and congressional actions that make it possible for agreements to be signed and implemented without the consent of two-thirds of the Senate nor with the knowledge of the general public. These extra-constitutional arrangements have dubious legal standing and while these may at most have standing for short periods such as national emergencies, it is extremely doubtful that their legal standing would be sufficient for a semi-permanent arrangement which has existed for almost 60 years. (Galactic Diplomacy, p. 24)

Recent research has however discovered the legal concept and practice of an “executive agreement” that rules out such reasoning.

According to the U.S. State Department website:
international agreements brought into force with respect to the United States on a constitutional basis other than with the advice and consent of the Senate are “international agreements other than treaties” and are often referred to as “executive agreements.”
An “executive agreement” makes it possible for a U.S. President to reach an agreement with a foreign power without the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate. Furthermore, under international law, executive agreements are recognized as valid, even if these have been conducted in secrecy. Also, the U.S., Supreme Court has ruled that executive agreements are valid, even if the U.S. Congress is not consulted.

In a case involving an Executive Agreement between President Roosevelt and the Soviet Union (United States v. Belmont 301 U.S. 324 [1937])the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the President’s power to sign executive agreements without consulting or gaining the consent of the US Senate. The reasoning for the decision from the perspective of one of Justices was summarized as follows:

The President’s act in recognizing the Soviet government, and the accompanying agreements, constituted, said the Justice, an international compact which the President, “as the sole organ” of international relations for the United States, was authorized to enter upon without consulting the Senate. Nor did state laws and policies make any difference in such a situation, for while the supremacy of treaties is established by the Constitution in express terms, yet the same rule holds “in the case of all international compacts and agreements from the very fact that complete power over international affairs is in the National Government and is not and cannot be subject to any curtailment or interference on the part of the several States.”
The disturbing conclusion is that executive agreements signed by President Eisenhower and his successors with representatives of an extraterrestrial civilization may be legal under both international and U.S. domestic law. The only caveat is if the executive agreement violates the U.S. Constitution, then the Supreme Court could strike it down. If an executive agreement is highly classified, however, then it is highly unlikely to be brought before the Supreme Court for adjudication. This basically removes the sole known judicial mechanism for striking down an executive agreement signed by a U.S. President.

According to whistleblower testimony, in exchange for President Eisenhower giving aliens the right to establish bases, extract Earth resources and to conduct limited biological research on humans, the U.S. received assistance in studying and reverse engineering alien technologies. Consequently, the U.S. has participated in the development of a secret space fleet that operates in deep space, and conducts diplomatic relations with extraterrestrial civilizations. According to one whistleblower, the secret space fleet is part of an organization called the “Earth Defense Force,” while other whistleblowers call it “Solar Warden.”

The idea that secret “executive agreements” reached by U.S. Presidents and extraterrestrial civilizations may be constitutional will come as a shock to many. Unfortunately, executive agreements are valid in international law and even recognized by the U.S. Supreme Court. Consequently, there is likely to be an extensive number of secret “executive agreements” reached between the U.S., and perhaps even other governments, with representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations. Urgent action needs to be placed on exposing these agreements to eliminate any wrong doing, and ensure that they comply with the U.S. Constitution, and International law and Human Rights standards.

It’s official – extraterrestrials can now land at Hawaii UFO Sanctuary

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in galactic diplomacy

Star Visitor Sanctuary Opening Ceremony
Star Visitor Sanctuary Opening CeremonyThe Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary was officially launched on Friday June 27, 2014 in a dedication ceremony on the Big Island of Hawaii. A video released today shows many of the events conducted with the goal of inviting extraterrestrial visitors to land, and meet with representatives of the Reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii and private citizens. The ceremony began with a traditional Hawaiian blowing of the conch shell followed by a blessing by the Minister of the Interior for the Kingdom of Hawaii. The video then shows a dedication by the “Women of the Womb” that was followed by the building of a traditional “Ahu” designed to sanctify the Sanctuary in accord with Hawaiian tradition.

Michael Weeks, the Kingdom’s Representative for the Puna region, ended the formal part of the dedication ceremony by reading the “Declaration for the Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary”. The Declaration explains the sovereign legal authority of the Kingdom of Hawaii, the Kingdom’s history of international neutrality, and protocols for extraterrestrials or “star visitors” to land and begin formal diplomatic relations with Kingdom representatives.

The dedication of the Sanctuary is the second time that a sovereign state has dedicated land for the exclusive purpose of extraterrestrials to land and meet private citizens. The Sanctuary is hosted on land provided by the Kingdom of Hawaii in the area of Kalapana in the Puna region. Up to 200 people attended the ceremony and gave their enthusiastic support to organizers and those conducting various parts of the ceremony. This video captures most of the events that made up the dedication ceremony and post-dedication interviews revealing the aspirations of those attending for contact to happen with extraterrestrial visitors. It’s now official – extraterrestrial visitors can land at the Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary!

Kingdom of Hawaii rep discusses June 27 launch of extraterrestrial sanctuary

Written by admin on . Posted in exopolitics activism

Michael Weeks Interview June 2014.Movie_Snapshot Michael Weeks Interview June 2014 (2).Movie_SnapshotIn an exclusive video interview released today, an elected representative of the Reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii discusses a sanctuary being created for extraterrestrial visitors to land at the Big Island of Hawaii. Michael Weeks is the Representative for the Puna region of the Reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii. In the interview, Representative Weeks explains the history of the Reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii beginning with the overthrow of the Hawaiia Kingdom’s government in 1893 by U.S. plantation owners. The nonviolent resistance campaign initiated by the Hawaiian Queen Lili’uokalani to the coup and subsequent illegal annexation by the U.S. in 1898 continues to the present day.

Representative Weeks explains how the inherent sovereignty of Hawaiian nationals continues to exist despite the overthrow of the Kingdom’s government. He explains that in March 1999, the Kingdom of Hawaii government was reinstated by Hawaiian nationals in grass roots elections as an expression of their inherent sovereign right. The Reinstated Kingdom comprises a government headed by a Prime Minister, Henry Noa, two houses of parliament, and a revised Kingdom of Hawaii Constitution.

Representative Weeks relates his own personal experiences concerning ancient Hawaiian legends of the Kingdom of Mu/Lemuria and the connection to the Pleiades star system. He says that these legends spoke of a time when Pleiadians interbred with the ancient Lemurians who were the ancestors of modern Hawaiians.

Representative Weeks went on to explain why the Reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii has sovereignty over newly created land by recent volcanic lava flows that is designated for the Star Visitor sanctuary. He describes the importance of the Kingdom’s historic tradition of neutrality for welcoming extraterrestrial life. Finally, Representative Weeks explains the choice of June 27, 2014 for the launch of the Sanctuary which coincides with the next new moon.  
On Friday, June 27. 2014, there will be an open public ceremony dedicating the land assigned for the Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary, in accordance with Hawaiian tradition. The ceremony will occur on the first day of a Hawaiian Sustainability event scheduled for June 27-29, at Uncle Roberts, Kaimu-Kalapana, Kingdom of Hawaii. An exclusive interview with (Uncle) Robert Keli’iho’imola, Sr., a noble within the reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii, is available here.
