The US House of Representatives passed a bill on July 14 that includes a proposal for the establishment of a Space Corps to be formed out of existing US Air Force space operations. The proposal suggests that the Space Corps have a relationship to the US Air Force that parallels the current US Navy relationship with the Marine Corps.

What makes the proposal interesting is that it is being opposed by the US Air Force and the White House, both believe such a separation is unnecessary. According to Air Force Chief of Staff, General David Goldfein:

If you’re saying the words separate and space in the same sentence, I would offer, you’re moving in the wrong direction.

Similarly, the White House released a statement saying “the creation of a separate Space Corps … is premature at this time.”

Why is Congress attempting to push through a radical restructuring of USAF over the objections of senior military officials?

For an answer, we can examine the possibility that the USAF runs a second tier secret space program, and that the “real” or “first tier” space program is run by the US Navy. Indeed, this is precisely what was indicated by British hacker, Gary McKinnon, who found a list of “non-terrestrial officers” and “fleet to fleet” transfers.

The language found on the hacked Pentagon documents is clearly suggestive of a US Navy led secret space program. Does the Navy have space fleets where such transfers are a regular occurrence for its “non-terrestrial officers”?

Such a possibility has been solidified by a number of alleged secret space program whistleblowers, which began with Michael Relfe in 2000, Randy Cramer in 2014, and Corey Goode in 2015. All three, to varying degrees, refer to a Navy led “Space Corps”, which has existed since at least 1976.

Furthermore, all three claim to have served in “20 and back” programs based on age-regression and time travel technologies, without any direct evidence to support their incredible claims. The lack of direct evidence has predictably led to many skeptics deeming such claims outlandish, “inherently unverifiable”, and calling for them to be dismissed from serious consideration.

The emergence of William Tompkins’ book in December 2015, Selected by Extraterrestrials, provided something these three alleged whistleblowers have lacked – verifiable documents pointing to the existence of a Navy-led secret space program. Tompkins’ extensive documentation has been analyzed at length in the 2017 book, The US Navy’s Secret Space Program and Nordic Extraterrestrial Alliance.

Tompkins’ material affirms that a Navy led “20 and back” secret space program exists and does use highly advanced age-regression technologies which he helped pioneer when working at the aerospace company TRW (now part of Northrup Grumman) from 1967 to 1971. He says that beginning in the late 1970’s the first working Navy prototype spacecraft were deployed.

By the early 1980’s, space battle groups were formed comprising space carriers, destroyers and related support craft, some of which were several kilometers in length. Eventually, eight space battle groups were formed that essentially replicated the integrated command structure of a modern aircraft carrier battle group.

Tompkins’ testimony and documents, along with Relfe, Cramer and Goode’s testimonies, provides an answer to what McKinnon says he saw in terms of “fleet to fleet transfers”. Furthermore, McKinnon’s “non-terrestrial officers” would refer to Navy personnel that are actively serving under “20 and back” or similar programs.

If the above testimonies are accepted, then it is quite clear that a Navy-led Space Corps has been in operation for over four decades. More precisely, there are “space marines” currently serving in space, performing similar duties to what marines have been doing under the banner of the Department of the Navy for over two centuries.

We are now in a position to properly assess the House of Representatives proposal for a Space Corps. The proposal suggests that the USAF is the lead military service when it comes to space operations. However, if we accept the testimony of Tompkins, McKinnon, Goode, etc., then it is clear that it is the US Navy that is the lead military service in space operations.

By Congress proposing a USAF led Space Corps, something that the Air Force leadership opposes, what effectively is happening is that the general public is being encouraged to follow a manufactured debate – a red herring. The idea is to mislead the public into believing that the USAF is the lead military service in space affairs, and that a “Space Corps” does not presently exist.

This is diametrically opposed to what Tompkins, McKinnon, Goode, etc., have revealed. Therefore, it is fair to conclude that the proposal to form a US Space Corps as a separate military service under the USAF is little more than a red herring aimed at distracting the public from what is really happening in deep space. The real intent behind the Congress proposing such a Space Corps may be to condition the general public to accept a future “limited disclosure” of a USAF space program, while hiding the truth about the far more advanced Navy program.

Obama Report to Congress and space warOn May 26, President Barack Obama issued a report to the U.S. Congress about an interagency effort to develop an “integrated policy” to deter potential enemies in Space. Obama’s “Space Report” gives credence to secret space program whistleblowers such as Corey Goode, who claim that battles have been fought between rival secret space programs in 2015, with the most recent occurring over Antarctica in April 2016.

In a letter released through the White House Press Secretary discussing the report along with a classified Annex, Obama said:

The report is the result of an interagency process with the objectives to reduce risks to the United States and our allies in space; and to protect and preserve the rights, access, capabilities, use, and freedom of action of the United States in space.  Success will require a multi-year effort and commitment across all departments and agencies, and I look forward to your continued support. 

Obama’s letter said the report was issued to comply with “section 1613 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016″, which he signed into law on November 25, 2015.

The Act was first submitted as a Bill on May 14, 2015, and had the following section to which Obama was directly responding in his May 26, 2016, letter:

Requires the President to establish an interagency process to develop a policy to deter adversaries in space.

Obama’s letter refers to “a multi-year effort and commitment across all departments and agencies.” What provides important context for his letter are reports of alleged battles in space between different secret space programs, which began in early 2015 according to Goode.

Goode’s first public reference to battles in space was in an email interview released on May 30, 2015 where he discussed recent military conflict between different secret space programs [SSP] and their respective extraterrestrial allies both on Earth and in deep space:

Before the breakdown in the overall relations between the factions that were once united through the “Secret Earth Governments” (and their “Syndicates” known as the Cabal/Illuminati and various other Secret Societies), their Controllers (Draco Federation Royals and Ancient Earth/Human Break Away Civilizations that have deceived many and presented themselves as ET’s from various Star Systems) there has been quite a lot of chaos among these groups which has resulted in them turning on each other. This has led to conflict in various underground/undersea networked facilities that have been responsible for some of the Earth Quakes in recent months that have been occurring across the Planet Earth as well as some incidents on Mars and other bodies in the Sol System…

Goode went on to describe the result of defections to a SSP Alliance formed with the U.S. Navy’s Solar Warden program, which led to a surge in military battles, especially on Mars leading to many deaths at secret colonies:

Over the last 6 months there have also been some defections of assets from the Cabal controlled ICC [Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate] Secret Space Program, remnants of the Dark Fleet (which is not a Draco Fleet but a Human SSP Fleet that serves alongside the Draco Alliance) that were not caught outside of the Outer Barrier as well as various other Military Black Ops SSP Program Members. Some of them brought with them time critical and actionable intelligence that was acted on by some of the SSP Alliance Leadership and their new allies without bringing it to the SSP Alliance Council. This resulted in Two Massive Attacks that caused large numbers of innocent deaths. Those who took part in what the Blue Avians called “Atrocities” were unapologetic and stated that it was the cost of war but the collateral damage was regrettable.

It is very significant that Goode’s May 30, 2015 revelations of recent space battles overlapped with the introduction into the U.S. Congress of the original bill for the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016, which requested Obama to: “establish an interagency process to develop a policy to deter adversaries in space.”

It’s worth emphasizing here that at the same time Goode was revealing the military hostilities that had just occurred both on Earth and in Space between different secret space programs, the U.S. Congress was authorizing President Obama to respond to future scenarios not dissimilar to what Goode was saying had already occurred in early 2015.

More recently, Goode claims that he received a briefing about a battle fought over Antarctic skies in April 2016, involving an attack on six large “teardrop shaped” cruisers by dozens of smaller “chevron shaped” space craft. He has provided graphic illustrations of both the Antarctic space battle, and of the location of the six bases from which the alleged cruisers launched.

Goode was uncertain over the origin of the chevron shaped space craft, and referred to speculation among his contacts that they belonged to an “Earth Alliance”, comprising “White Hats” from different national militaries such as the BRICS nations of Russia, India, China and Brazil.

Goode also said that he was physically taken on a tour of these hidden Antarctic facilities, which he says are jointly run by the Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate (ICC) and the Dark Fleet. He stated that the six space cruisers belonged to Dark Fleet, which dates its origin to breakaway Nazi groups in Antarctica and South America.

They were carrying Nazi-aligned global elites that had fled to South America and Antarctica over the last six months, as Goode explained in a personal briefing to me on June 15.

Antarctic_Under_Ice_Industrial_Cities (2)

Red circles mark approximate locations of underground Dark Fleet/ICC bases in Antarctica and their relative sizes

On June 18 – 19, David Wilcock gave his analysis of the informal briefings he had received earlier from Goode, and speculated that the attacking chevron craft belonged to members of the U.S. Military Industrial Complex (MIC):

Corey’s people in the SSP Alliance did not know who built the “chevrons”. It appeared to be one of the Earth-based “lower level SSP” groups. In order to give them honor and respect, I will refer to these Earth-based space program groups as the military-industrial complex, or MIC.

Wilcock says that he spoke with another whistleblower, Dr. Pete Peterson, who said that the US based MIC was given these advanced technologies by defectors from corporate controlled secret space programs:

Peterson knew all about these triangle-shaped craft when I discussed it with him on the phone. The MIC are very proud of their new weapon. It is very likely that the MIC got this technology from Alliance defectors from the space-based ICC, or Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate.

The ICC is a faction of the SSP that started out as a part of the MIC. The ICC then became far more powerful and splintered off in various off-planet colonies. This group is completely self-sufficient, never needs money or supplies of any kind from Earth, and is effectively a breakaway civilization. The craft piloted by the earth-based MIC were nowhere near as advanced as those of the ICC or Dark Fleet, but all of that has changed now.

In June 2009, Petersen had first shared his testimony on a leading whistleblower site Project Camelot, and has continued to privately brief Wilcock.

If Goode and Petersen are correct, then it would appear that Obama’s letter referring to a “multi-year effort and commitment across all departments and agencies,” to deal with space adversaries, is not referring to a hypothetical future scenario, but is dealing with present real time contingencies involving one or more secret space programs and their extraterrestrial allies.

Furthermore, Goode claims that he was abducted on three occasions over a six week period during the months of January and February by an interagency military group with its own secret space assets, which was intent on gathering intelligence on the accuracy of Goode’s earlier revelations.

In a previous article, I discussed Goode’s June 15 personal briefing where he said that the National Reconnaissance Office, USAF Space Command and Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) were agencies very likely involved in his military abductions.

They are part of what Goode has previously described as a “lower level” secret space program, largely unaware of the more highly classified space programs operating in deep space with kilometers long space carriers and cruisers as confirmed by former aerospace engineer William Tompkins.

While at a Douglas Aviation Company think tank called Advanced Design, Tompkins says that he personally designed the first space battle groups in the 1950’s, which eventually began deployment in 1984 as the Navy’s Solar Warden Space program.

The significance of Goode’s January/February military abductions by the NRO, USAF Space Command and DIA is that these are currently gaining intelligence on the operations and technologies used in more advanced space programs, which are completely independent of the regular chain of military command, and Presidential oversight. These are almost certainly the same agencies involved in Obama’s “interagency process to develop a policy to deter adversaries in space.”

Consequently, if Goode is correctly reporting his experiences, then it would appear that his military abductions were part of President Obama’s new interagency initiative to prepare for future space battles involving unnamed adversaries.

Obama’s Space Report, and section 1613 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2016, provide important circumstantial support to Goode’s claims that military hostilities between rival secret space programs are currently occurring. These hostilities have stimulated a coordinated response by select military departments, agencies and corporations within the US Military Industrial Complex, and their international allies – what Goode loosely describes as the “Earth Alliance”, to deal with “adversaries” who will likely be revealed in what has been predicted to be a limited disclosure announcement.

US Congress protects slave labor-650

On November 16, the U.S. House of Representatives joined the Senate in passing a bill that provides legal protection for space mining conducted by U.S. based corporations that establish off-world operations. While most Congressional members that passed H.R.2262 – U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act may have done so with the impression that they would protect the rights of U.S. companies in future space mining missions, they instead have provided legal protection to corporations that have been secretly conducting such operations for decades.

The passage of the “U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act” is significant due to recent whistleblower claims that off-world space mining by U.S. affiliated corporations have been using slave labor on Mars and elsewhere in our solar system. More recently, it has been claimed that these mining operations and associated bases, began as a result of cooperation between German Secret Societies and the U.S. military industrial complex, a relationship that dates back to the late 1950s.

If these claims are true, then U.S. corporations have been involved in slave labor practices on Mars and elsewhere, which originated with the policies of Nazi Germany. Clark McClelland, a veteran space engineer who worked for NASA or its contractors for a total of 34 years, claims he saw Hans Kammler, the same Nazi SS official involved in implementing slave labor practices for highly advanced secret projects in Germany, at the Kennedy Space Center in the early 1960s.

McCelland’s testimony supports another whistleblower, Corey Goode, who claims secret agreements had been reached with the Eisenhower administration as a result of flyovers of Washington D.C., by German flying saucers in 1952. McClelland’s and Goode’s testimonies about Nazi and German infiltration of the U.S. space program are investigated in the recent book Insiders Reveal Secret Space Programs and Extraterrestrial Alliances.

The relevant section of the “U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act,” dealing with protecting space mining was originally submitted on March 19 to the U.S. Congress as a separate bill titled “H.R.1508: Space Resource Exploration and Utilization Act of 2015.”

Rather than being voted on as a separate bill, the “Space Resource Exploration and Utilization Act” was instead incorporated into the larger bill, “H.R.2262 – U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act.” It was the latter bill that was passed by the House of Representatives on November 17, and earlier by the U.S. Senate on November 10.

Title IV of the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act (aka Space Resource Exploration and Utilization Act of 2015) protects the rights of mining companies willing to invest significant financial resources in future space exploration. If, for example, a mining company establishes a base on Mars, then it would have the right to exploit the resources of Mars while being protected under U.S. federal law.

Here is what the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act has to say in section “51302. Commercial exploration and commercial recovery”:

(a) IN GENERAL – The President, acting through appropriate Federal agencies, shall—

(1)       facilitate the commercial exploration and utilization of space resources to meet national needs;

This clause raises the possibility that under U.S. “national needs” the President of the United States can provide resources and assistance to mining companies to establish off-world bases and mining. There is nothing particularly alarming here at the prospect of companies such as Elon Musk’s SpaceX being given assistance to plan future Mars missions that establish mining bases to fund themselves.

The next clause of the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act does raise some disturbing issues however:

(2) discourage government barriers to the development of economically viable, safe, and stable industries for the exploration and utilization of space resources in manners consistent with the existing international obligations of the United States;

What exactly does “discourage government barriers” mean? This clause could be used to argue against any future government regulations as unnecessary and causing significant impediment to profitable mining operations.

For example, if a mining company was to exploit workers in slave-labor like conditions, rather than federal regulators imposing U.S. labor standards, the oppressed workers would be left hanging to seek a resolution of the corporate entity itself. 

The subsequent clause is even more alarming:

(3) promote the right of United States commercial entities to explore outer space and utilize space resources, in accordance with the existing international obligations of the United States, free from harmful interference…

What does “free from harmful interference” mean? In the case of a mining corporation imposing slave labor working conditions, this clause suggests that international organizations such as the International Criminal Court would not have the power to directly intervene. Basically, managers at prospective space mining operations would be protected under U.S. Federal Law from international organizations investigating them for using slave labor.

Finally, section 106 of the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act specifies the U.S. federal courts as having “exclusive jurisdiction”:

 “(g) Federal jurisdiction.—Any claim by a third party or space flight participant for death, bodily injury, or property damage or loss resulting from an activity carried out under the license shall be the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal courts.”

Basically, this means that any human rights issues arising in the mining operations of corporations with off-world bases would have to be addressed through U.S. federal courts.

The U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act raises some very troubling legal issues about future mining operations by U.S. based corporations. However, rather than a hypothetical legal problem to be debated by space law attorneys, there is testimonial evidence that space mining operations already secretly exist. Furthermore, it has been claimed that these mining operations use slave labor on Mars and other locations in the solar system.

According to alleged eyewitness testimony, an inspection of a Mars mining and manufacturing facility was conducted on June 20, 2015. In a detailed report written two days later, Corey Goode claims that he along with a “Lt Col Gonzales” (a pseudonym) were given an official tour of a facility owned by a corporation called the “Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate” (ICC). The inspection was done to investigate claims of slave labor being used at ICC facilities.

According to Goode, a former ICC employee had defected to a rival space program called the “Secret Space Program (SSP) Alliance”, and was willing to testify in future legal proceedings against responsible corporate officials.

A Council heading the SSP Alliance made the necessary arrangements for Goode and Gonzales to travel to Mars and inspect the ICC facility. Based on what Goode and Gonzales directly witnessed, there is testimonial evidence that slave labor is currently being used on Mars to mine and manufacture products for the ICC.

It has been claimed that the findings of investigations by the SSP Alliance, against corporate and other abuses in space, will submitted in planned “crimes against humanity” trials.

If Goode’s report is accurate, then the effect of the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act would be to give U.S. federal legal protection to the owners, managers and personnel of corporations currently using slave labor in off-world operations. Investigations by international human rights organizations, including the International Criminal Court, and the alleged SSP Alliance legal proceedings, would be effectively neutralized.

Currently, the House’s Space Resource Exploration and Utilization Act awaits reconciliation with its Senate version before being passed on to President Obama for his signature and ratification. This is expected to happen quickly with little debate since the general public, mass media, and perhaps even Obama himself, are unaware of the secret decades-long involvement of U.S. corporations in off-world mining operations. 

It appears more than coincidental that at the same time as accusations of slave labor being used at off-world mining operations are being secretly investigated for possible criminal prosecution, that the U.S. Congress has passed legislation that would effectively provide legal protection to corporate officials responsible for crimes against humanity in space.

Moon Meeting March 2015

On Tuesday, Dr. John Grunsfeld, head of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate told the House Science, Technology and Space Committee that extraterrestrial life is on the verge of being discovered. For many, Grunsfeld’s bold prediction was basically a pitch to the House Committee to increase spending levels for NASA’s space exploration missions, where recent successes by NASA in discovering water on other planets and moons in our solar system justifies more funding. Was his discovery prediction merely a pitch for more funding based on recent scientific discoveries, or is there a deeper ‘exopolitics’ agenda at play concerning the imminent disclosure of extraterrestrial life?

 Grunsfeld told the House Committee:

Are we alone? Many, many people on planet Earth want to know…. We are on the cusp of being able to answer that question.

 The Huffington Post gave a summary of the recent developments concerning the discovery of water in the solar system:

 There’s evidence of an interior ocean on Pluto. One of Jupiter’s moons has a global ocean beneath its crust that could contain more than twice as much water as Earth. There are at least half a dozen of these ocean worlds in our solar system alone — and where there’s water, there may be answers about the potential for life across the universe.

In addition, there was the recent discovery of a rocky exoplanet only 60% larger than earth that rotates around a sun similar to our own, in a comparable orbit of 385 days. Scientists said that the likelihood that Kepler has surface water, and therefore the right conditions for life to evolve is very good.

NASA’s recent scientific discoveries and bold predictions by Grunsfeld and other NASA officials lead to the conclusion that the public is being prepared for the imminent discovery of extraterrestrial life. Is this merely a result of genuine scientific advances in NASA’s ability to better detect the conditions for life in our and other solar system? Or is Grunsfeld’s prediction part of a deeper ‘exopolitics’ agenda driven by developments behind the scenes?

Raw Teir Eir

Illustration of Blue Avian that appeared on stage in secret meeting held on the moon in March 2015

Beginning in early March 2015, there was an alleged meeting on the moon involving up to 70 private individuals along with about 120 officials representing different secret space programs and national governments who heard plans about disclosing the existence of extraterrestrial life. The meeting was addressed by an 8ft tall extraterrestrial called Raw-Teir-Eir who belongs to an alien race called the “Blue Avians” that is part of an alliance called the Sphere Being Alliance. The Sphere Being Alliance is allegedly intent on helping bring about full disclosure of extraterrestrial life.

Two of the individuals that attended that secret moon meeting have revealed themselves to varying extents. Corey Goode, who initially used the pseudonym GoodETxSG when his testimony first emerged in October 2014, publicly revealed himself in early April. The second individual, a military officer who uses the pseudonym Lt Col Gonzales, more recently allowed  summaries of two secret space program meetings he attended in June to be released. The summaries were Goode’s notes on the oral briefings Gonzales had given to Goode who did not attend the two meetings. Goode gave video testimony of the secret moon meeting held in March that both he and Gonzales attended which is available for free online at Gaia TV.

Goode’s and Gonzales’ testimonies suggest that public officials at NASA, the European Space Agency and other national space programs have been advised that plans are advancing quickly behind the scenes to disclose to the general public the truth about extraterrestrial life. In order to better prepare the world for the psychological shock of discovering that extraterrestrial life is real and that government institutions have been withholding this for decades, officials such as Grunsfeld are very active in playing up the imminent nature of a discovery of extraterrestrial life. Presentations such as Grunsfeld’s at the House Science Committee are a good opportunity to generate media interest in the implications of such a discovery while making it appear as though the only hidden agenda is a pitch for more NASA funding.

If Goode and Gonzales are correct, then there is a deeper exopolitics agenda behind Grunsfeld’s announcement. This agenda suggests that any NASA announcement about the discovery of extraterrestrial life is preparation for further disclosures about when alien life was first discovered, when it first made contact with humanity, and why this vital information was kept secret from the public for decades.

On June 15, the U.S. House of Representatives took a major step in passing a bill that provides legal protection to space mining by U.S. based corporations that establish off-world operations. While most members of the House’s “Science, Space and Technology Committee” that passed the bill may have done so with the impression that they would protect the rights of U.S. companies in future space mining missions, they instead have provided legal protection to corporations that have been secretly conducting such operations for decades. This is especially significant given recent claims that off-world space mining by U.S. affiliated corporations have used slave labor on Mars and elsewhere in our solar system.

The bill, “H.R.1508: Space Resource Exploration and Utilization Act of 2015,” was introduced and referred to the Science, Space and Technology Committee by a bipartisan group of eight members on March 19, 2015. On June 15, after an 18-15 vote two days earlier in favor of amending the bill, it was officially sent to the full House for a vote in an upcoming session. An identical bipartisan bill has been introduced into the Senate by Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Patty Murry (D-WA).

The Space Resource Exploration and Utilization Act ostensibly protects the rights of mining companies willing to invest significant financial resources in future space exploration. If, for example, a mining company establishes a base on Mars, then it would have the right to exploit the resources of Mars and be protected under U.S. Federal Law. Here is what the proposed Act has to say in Section 51302:

(a) Commercialization of space resource exploration and utilization
(1) IN GENERAL – The President, acting through appropriate Federal agencies, shall— facilitate the commercial exploration and utilization of space resources to meet national needs;

This clause raises the possibility that under U.S. “national needs” the President of the United States can provide resources and assistance to mining companies to establish off-world bases and mining. There is nothing particularly alarming here at the prospect of companies such as SpaceX being given assistance to plan future Mars missions that establish mining bases to fund themselves. Back on November 16, 2012, SpaceX founder Elon Musk announced his plans to build a colony of 80,000 people: “At Mars, you can start a self-sustaining civilization and grow it into something really big.”

The next clause of the Space Resource Exploration and Utilization Act does raise some disturbing issues however:

(2) discourage government barriers to the development of economically viable, safe, and stable industries for the exploration and utilization of space resources in manners consistent with the existing international obligations of the United States;

What exactly does “discourage government barriers” mean? That appears to be short hand for saying that any government regulations are unnecessary and could be a significant impediment for profitable mining operations. For example, if the mining company was to exploit workers in slave-labor like conditions, this would be a problem for the mining company to resolve, rather than federal regulators imposing U.S. labor standards.

The subsequent clause is even more alarming:

(3) promote the right of United States commercial entities to explore outer space and utilize space resources, in accordance with the existing international obligations of the United States, free from harmful interference…

What does “free from harmful interference” mean? In the case of a mining corporation imposing slave labor working conditions, this clause suggests that international organizations such as the International Criminal Court would not have the power to directly intervene. Basically, managers at prospective space mining operations would be protected under U.S. Federal Law from international organizations investigating them for using slave labor.

Finally, the Space Resource Exploration and Utilization Act specifies the U.S. district courts as having “Exclusive Jurisdiction”:

Exclusive Jurisdiction: The district courts of the United States shall have original jurisdiction over an action under this chapter without regard to the amount in controversy.

Basically, this means that any human rights issues arising in the mining operations of corporations with off-world bases would have to be addressed through U.S. district courts.

The Space Resource Exploration and Utilization Act raises some very troubling legal issues about future mining operations by U.S. based mining corporations. However, rather than a hypothetical legal problem to be debated by space law attorneys, there is testimonial evidence that space mining operations already secretly exist. Furthermore, it has been claimed that these mining operations use slave labor on Mars and other locations in the solar system.

Based on what Goode and Gonzales directly witnessed, there is testimonial evidence that slave labor is currently being used on Mars to mine and manufacture products for the ICC.

If Goode’s report is accurate, then the effect of the U.S. Space Resource Exploration and Utilization Act would be to give U.S. Federal legal protection to the owners, managers and personnel of these corporations currently using slave labor, against possible investigations by international human rights organizations, including the International Criminal Court.

Goode’s incredible claims are currently being investigated. It is likely that the corroborating testimony of Lt Col Gonzales will emerge in the near future. In addition, Goode claims that an extensive number of documents are forthcoming that will substantiate his claims.

Currently, the Space Resource Exploration and Utilization Act has moved to the full House of Representatives for debate and a vote at its next legislative session, while the Senate will follow soon after with its own version of the bill. It appears more than coincidental that at the same time as accusations of slave labor being used at off-world mining operations are being secretly investigated for possible criminal prosecution, that the U.S. Congress is in the midst of passing legislation that would effectively provide legal protection to corporate officials responsible for such crimes.

Congress-NASA-ETOn December 4, the House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology of the U.S. Congress held a session discussing the possibility of extraterrestrial life and what should be done to find space aliens. Titled: Astrobiology: The Search for Biosignatures in Our Solar System and Beyond” the session lasted 90 minutes. The meeting was chaired by Lamar Smith of Texas and featured three prominent astrobioligists from NASA, MIT and the Library of Congress. The questions asked by House members were rather general and vague, sometimes descending into the ridiculous. Rep. Ralph Hall (R-Tex) asked the panel: “Do you think there’s life out there and are they studying us — and what do they think of New York City?” Some members of the Democratic Party criticized the meetings as a waste of time. So why did the House hold this meeting at all, and why now?

The answer according to most astrobiologists is that the discovery of exoplanets makes it certain that there are millions, if not billions of earth like planets capable of hosting life in our galaxy alone. A recent statistical paper found that 22% of sun like stars may host habitable planets. Given the high unlikelihood that so much cosmic real estate would be devoid of life that has shown itself to be so robust on Earth, astrobiologists have basically reached a consensus that it is a only a matter of time before alien life is found. This was the observation of Bill Posey, Republican of Florida who said: “You’ve pretty much indicated [the discovery of] life on other planets is inevitable…. It’s just a matter of time and funding.” Posey and other members acknowledged that there needs to be more funding for NASA to build better space telescopes to find exoplanets and support detection programs like SETI to find intelligent alien life out there. Dr Stephen Dick from the Library of Congress challenged the current separation between detecting microbiological and intelligent extraterrestrial life, and called for a renewal of funding for SETI:

In addition to a renewed search with the latest technology, the reinstatement of funding for SETI would allow a systematic examination of these intriguing questions. It would also repair the artificial programmatic divorce between the search for microbial and intelligent life, which, despite engaging different scientific communities, are part of the same research problem. And I believe SETI would be supported by the public, which as always is interested in life beyond Earth, whether microbial or intelligent.

Earlier in May a subcommittee of the House Science Committee heard evidence of the latest astronomical findings concerning exoplanets, and the need to continue funding such research. There are many congressional members sympathetic to NASA and its budgetary needs despite the strict fiscal conservatism of the Republican Party that has led to cut backs in NASA funding. The White House has submitted a budget for NASA of $17.7billion for 2014, which is a slight decrease from 2012. It is not certain that NASA will even get this which is a worry to its supporters.

This latest Congressional meeting comes roughly seven months after a mock congressional hearing involving six former members of Congress. The Citizen Hearings on Disclosure examined evidence of a UFO cover-up and that we are being visited by various extraterrestrial civilizations. The former congressional members did not think it likely that the current Congress would take up any time soon the issue of extraterrestrial life, or at least claims of a cover-up. Yet here we are seven months later and Congress has indeed begun openly discussing extraterrestrial life, though not evidence of a cover-up.

Curiously, current members of the U.S. Congress are open to discussing extraterrestrial life in the context of the latest astronomical data provided by NASA, yet won’t hear from former NASA employees and astronauts about what they know of a cover-up. Apollo 14 astronaut Dr Edgar Mitchell, for example, has been very prominent in speaking out about the cover-up for over a decade. Indeed he testified by live video before the Citizen Disclosure Hearing. Yet don’t expect the House Committee to call upon Dr Mitchell soon to testify. The official stance seems to be that discussion of extraterrestrial life is now fine as long as it’s done in the context of NASA’s discoveries of exoplanets, but don’t discuss the possibility of a cover up by NASA employees and others. That way NASA can get funds for more efforts to find alien life somewhere in deep space, while ridiculing those claiming that NASA has already discovered ET much closer to home.

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.

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.

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.
