The Gulf of Mexico Oil Disaster- What took place, Why, Who was responsible and the long term Economical and Ecological Implications.

Many opinions and theories have come out due to the natural oil spill disaster. Our Government has in all actuality stayed quiet muffled about the incident and the Media has kept news of it scrambled and with many holes along the way. Why has this taken place? Well I hope to answer that or at the very least give you the insight of what I have uncovered through research of facts as well as bringing my knowledge and experience to help put together what everyone needs to know.

Some would say this was due to lack of safety inspections and the neglect of the big oil industry. Some would say it was the result of a “Terrorist” attack or the act of war by North Korea. Others might tell you it was an inside job for monetary gain. Some will also say it was done as part of the Global Elite agenda for depopulation. Another theory you might here is that it is simply a matter of firming the grip on societal control. I am here to tell you that in a way these statements are all correct.

To explain everything I am going to cover would take a lot more words than I am going to use and at some point if needed I will explain on record further with all of you each point and concern I am about to explain. So let’s begin with the time line.

First of all here is an article of the timeline of events since day one. http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6482L220100510 Now after you have reviewed the timeline let’s fill in the gaps of the first day and even prior to the disaster happening. 20 hours prior to the explosion the company Halliburton http://www.halliburton.com/ which is owned by famous war criminal Dick Cheney was on the rig to do some maintenance and support cement work on the drilling. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/10/gulf-spill-halliburton-co_n_570484.html I find this interesting due to the similarity with the “security” company and maintenance
that had occurred in the World Trade Center just before the “attack” when for 8 hours surveillance cameras were shut off.

Next we have the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) on the oil rig 2 hours before the explosion doing a surprise inspection. Now this can happen. The BLM is authorized to do surprise inspections on any facility on Federal land or in US operated waters. However there seems to be a bit of questioning as far as proper identification of the entire inspection team plus to have this occur 2 hours prior just doesn’t sit well with me. What were they really doing there and how come the BLM hasn’t made any official statements? Don’t you think that if they were doing a safety inspection one VERY important thing they might want to check are the mandatory safety blow-back Valves that prevent something like this from occurring? The truth is that that wouldn’t have mattered anyway because an oil rig worker who has remained anonymous has stated that the blow-back valves were the wrong kind for the rigs requirements. Now who knows how long it will be before we find out for sure since all the surviving oil rig workers are on a gag-order by BP, which they were all forced to sign. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHj97pvEHkM

One other interesting fact I need to add is that these offshore oil rigs are set up with an emergency alarm system that notifies all proper response teams like the US Coast Guard. The only way proper emergency notification could not have happened would be either due to faulty equipment that wasn’t properly inspected or the equipment itself was disabled. At this point it could go either way. But here’s the REALLY interesting part most media neglects to say. “A crew member from an oil platform that sank off the Louisiana coast Thursday reported an initial explosion three hours before the rig went up in flames in a second, larger explosion, the Coast Guard said.” Refer to this article- http://www.palmbeachpost.com/money/ap-oil-rig-reported-explosion-3ap-oil-rig-reported-explosion-3-hours-before-598217.html Now what I want to know is how the hell does there become a 3 hour gap between first and second explosion. If I was on the demolition team I suppose I would want time to get away and for the accelerate to take it’s course for optimum damage. Is that farfetched? Not really considering the details in planning this obviously had.

Now most of you are aware of the rest of the timeline that is full of mistakes, overlooking details and just plane diversion of the truth. So let’s breakdown some key points.

I spoke of Haliburton and BLM and there involvement so let’s now talk about the other key players.

Transocean is a global company that builds Oil Rigs and guess what? They built Deep Horizon. See for yourself – http://www.deepwater.com/fw/main/Deepwater-Horizon-56C17.html?LayoutID=17
Now this global company has been in the business for a long time yet this is the product they put out? If Toyota has a faulty floor mat and years later they have a recall because of a few auto accidents as a result of that floor mat Toyota is held responsible, yet Transocean is just about in the shadows and even said they are putting a cap on how much money they will spend on clean-up. Hey Transocean how about those “faulty” blow-back valves?

Starting to see this rabbit hole goes deep?

British Petroleum has done some foolish stuff in the past. Let’s have a look- http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/09/business/09bp.html This oil disaster though is by far the worst and so far here has been their ideas and attempts to contain the oil. They made an attempt to cover it with a 4 story containment metal box which failed. Then they had some “top scientists” come up with the idea to plug the hole (if you didn’t know there are actually 5 separate leaks) with golf balls, rubber tires and rope. Excuse me? Did someone forget to remind them that 100,000 barrels of oil that is spewing out everyday? With that kind of pressure behind it that idea of theirs is just plane stupid. These oil companies are also suppose to have onshore emergency backup plans and equipment. Yet BP seemed to almost sit on their thumbs for quite a while before taking pathetic action. Then they went from stupid to insanity. Here’s why I say that.

British Petroleum own a company called NALCO http://www.nalco.com/applications/corexit-technology.htm That company makes COREXIT. COREXIT is a highly toxic oil dispersant that even as you read this is being flooded onto the Gulf via ship, plane and even on shore through high pressure hoses. Here’s a little fact about COREXIT- The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has pre-approved both for such emergencies. The effectiveness of Corexit EC9500A is rated as 55 percent, and the effectiveness of Corexit EC9527A is rated as 63 percent, according to the EPA. That ranks them behind 12 other dispersants (out of 18) that the agency has determined do a better job dispersing oil while protecting marine life.
As for toxicity, the EPA rates both products as either comparable in toxicity or 10 to 20 times more toxic than the 12 others on the list. This week, BP chief executive Tony Hayward told The Guardian newspaper that the amount was “tiny in relation to the total water volume” in the Gulf.
Reliance on dispersants, especially in response to a disaster on par with the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska is understandable, say environmental groups. What they don’t understand is why marine ecosystems are being sacrificed to save coastal habitats, a trade-off that wouldn’t be an issue if there were less toxic solutions. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2010/0515/In-Gulf-oil-spill-how-helpful-or-damaging-are-dispersants

So in all actuality this dispersant is causing more wide spread harm to the Gulf than the oil itself at the moment. Plus the fact that in 1967 an oil spill happened off the southern California coast. Do you know what was used primarily to clean it up? Hay, straw and Kentucky Bluegrass. Sound familiar to anyone? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5SxX2EntEo Yet we won’t see that being payed for because BP is making profit off the dispersant.
So now you know most of the players in this disaster, but there are a couple more. I can only speculate due to the disappointing behavior of Obama that he himself is either aware of the REAL truth behind this or he himself is under gag order. Consider this before you side with Obama that perhaps he has no choice but to stay quiet. He may very well be aware and this is why. He may deny it but I have found enough to convince me that BP gave Obama more campaign money than any other single politician they have given to in 20 years which in that 20 year time BP has given $3.5 million. Plus let’s not forget the $15.9 million they gave just last year to influence the Energy policy. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0510/36783.html

Could this be why since the disaster occurred 27 waivers of inspection have been authorized by our Government to offshore rigs in the Gulf? http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2010/05/07/93761/despite-spill-feds-still-giving.html So even with all of this our so called government does this!

This little known fact may come to a surprise to you all as well. As many of you know Goldman Sachs has been under hot financial pressure by really the same guys in the same club. So to “fix” their problem they decided to bet against oil rig Deep Horizon. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/andy-borowitz/goldman-sachs-reveals-it_b_558774.html This took place only a few days prior and that bet was from what I was told by a source $134 million. May not sound like a lot but put it this way. It’s like a reverse bid on the stock market. If a product fails you actually make money. Bets like this can make 10 times the amount and more. My guess Goldman Sachs is cashing in.

Now you know a brief description of the the key players and time line. I could get into more of it but it’s a lot to write at this time. I will explain in further detail after my next wave of investigation.

So let’s move on to the next issue with this disaster. With every great disaster comes change and the birth of new policies and even government agencies. This has taken place for a long time but let’s go fairly current. 9/11 was the birth of the Department of Homeland Defense, Transportation Security Administration and the PATRIOT Act. Hurricane Katrina gave FEMA far more involvement in Civil emergency response and was really the final launch pad for certain facilities with many coffins on standby. That brings us to the Deep Horizon oil rig disaster. The Obama Administration suddenly out of nowhere pops out a 2000 page document (which I am trying to get a copy of) that states the creation of 2 new policing agencies, one to police offshore oil rigs and the other to handle matters right alongside the oil companies. So apparently what we had before wasn’t good enough?! http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2010/05/11/93928/feds-announce-new-agency-to-police.html

This is all coming down to some very serious issues for us all. Like I said to some of you about this disaster it will effect more lives than Pearl harbor and 9/11 combined AND will also damage plants, marine life, birds, humans, plants, crops and even drinking water. Is that a bit farfetched? Think again my friends. Let me explain the following.

Marine life- the Gulf and the rest of the Worlds oceans have 3 main sources of food that is the very foundation for the Marine Life food chain. I am talking about Phytoplankton, Plankton and Krill.
Phytoplankton are a major food source for anemones, coral and more of the seabed life. Phytoplankton depends on growing and multiplying by Photosynthesis. Between the ever growing oil sheen and the underwater oil plume this Phytoplankton will die on a large scale do to a lack of essential sunlight.
Krill and Plankton are a vital food source as well for everything from Shrimp to Whales and many in-between are effected by the loss of them. In fact for the first time in quite a while grey whales are being seen in parts of the Atlantic ocean thought to be void of them. This poses another problem which is that whales who normally make the Atlantic their home now have to compete which in turn will decrease the amount of food for them.
We have already seen dolphins washing up on shore dieing from toxins, suffocation and a lack of food. In case you didn’t know dolphins and whales each have a purpose being on this planet and if that balance gets tampered with we are in for a world of trouble. I promise you that.
Now let’s look at the oil itself. First of all we have 5 holes the oil is spewing from at a massive rate. This is causing massive under pressure below the seabed. Erosion is happening but we don’t know how fast. Plus with massive amounts of methane crystals forming which isn’t a good thing either we are looking at a potential volcanic type eruption. Once that happens the Gulf will indeed turn black killing everything in it. Currently we are dealing with this new problem of the thick crude oil, plume that has formed beneath the water surface and is making its way to the Gulf northern currents. This means if it gets caught up in it we will see it round Florida and make it’s way up the eastern seaboard.
When crude oil floats on the surface of seawater something takes place. It begins to emulsify. That basically means it becomes like a sea foam except with oil. Here’s the danger with that. We are going to be reaching hurricane season before we know it in the Caribbean and I know how they work so imagine this. I must remind you this is the worst case scenario. Hurricanes pick up water on the surface of the ocean. This emulsified oil will be picked up. This means islands and even coastal towns in the US will get engulfed with this oil. Look outside right now and imagine every tree, car, building, fountain and everything else covered in a light layer of this oil. It is possible. Not to mention the issue of this dispersant they are using which is highly toxic as well. Then this poses the problem of acid rain. COREXIT and crude oil mixed in rain water is what could happen.
Besides the obvious of the massive amounts of jobs being lost, increase in seafood, most likely a bump up in taxes and gas going up here is another issue we need to consider.

Drinking water and coastal food crops. I spent a lot of years on ships and know how water purifications work very well. First we have what is called an Oil Water Separator. This is to separate oil out of bilge water. It works well but not 100%. In fact in US Coast Guard and EPA regulations a certain thousands part per million is allowed in the water when being discharged overboard. Evaporators and ROs (Reverse Osmosis) which are used to make seawater into drinking water have difficulties when dealing with oil. Unless our government REALLY picks up the pace on this disaster and cleanup we are looking at yet another huge problem. Once the oil and dispersants reach the shores, inner bays and even rivers where there are pumping stations to plants that purify water for drinking and watering food crops we are looking at contamination. I know this sounds horrible but it’s the absolute truth my friends. Make no mistake the worst is yet to come. It has already been predicted that if this oil disaster is not contained 100% soon it could have an adverse effect on 1/3 of our worlds oceans and if that happens guess what is next.

I have discussed a lot in this statement and to be honest I could discuss a lot more but quite simply I am mentally exhausted. However this needed to be said to all of you. This by no means was meant to cause panic but simply to put things in a better perspective so you all know what steps we need to take to fight this and go after who is truly at fault. You are all in my thoughts and protection.

Thank you.

Ex Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary of Intelligence For The United States Speaks Out About UFOs

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A former High Ranking federal government employee, Christopher Mellon, is writing a lot about the reality of UFOs and the need to study the phenomenon.

  • Reflect On:

    Has this phenomenon not already been studied, in secrecy, for decades? Why doesn't Mellon ever address that fact?

If there is one thing that’s glaringly obvious, it’s that Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), or Unidentified Ariel phenomenon, are real. This is evident by hundreds of military encounters that have been documented for decades. Complimenting these encounters is a plethora of radar tracking data, photographs, and videos.

Although once deemed a “conspiracy theory,” similar to how mass surveillance was until that was exposed by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, that’s not the case anymore.

This in large part came from all of the activists in the field sharing information about UFOs in a very credible manner. It also came from recent happenings within the mainstream, when major mouthpieces for the establishment like The New York Times and Washington Post covered the topic of UFOs.

One of the writers of those pieces was Christopher Mellon, who served 30 years in the federal government and was Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary for Intelligence from 1997  to 2002 and in security and information operations from 1998 to 1999. From 2002 to 2004, he was Minority Staff Director of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence under Sen. John Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.).

Mellon’s Washington post article detailed a number of UFO encounters with the military with extreme credibility. But again, this isn’t new information. In the 1950s, President Harry Truman went on national television announcing to the world that UFOs are real, and that they discuss the topic at every conference that they have with the military, that “there’s always things like that going on, flying saucers and they’ve had other things.” (source)

The secrecy wrapped around this subject has been active for more than 100 years.

In Mellon’s latest article for The Hill, Mellon states that:

Congress need do at this juncture is require the secretary of Defense and the director of national intelligence to review the UAP issue and deliver a report providing a comprehensive assessment. This report should include not only an estimate of the situation but a description of the structure and processes required to ensure effective collection and analysis going forward.

He goes on to stress the importance of further study of what’s going on here, hinting that they could be Russian objects, which in my opinion is a ridiculous assumption. He also hints to the fact that they could be extraterrestrial by stating that:

If UAPs turn out to be toys of Elon Musk’s making, we’ll all breathe a sigh of relief. If they are Russian, we’ll be glad we took action now rather than kicking the can down the road. If we learn that someone else’s more advanced version of our Voyager spacecraft has reached Earth, then this humble measure will forever transform our understanding of the universe and man’s place within it.

What’s Fishy About Mainstream Coverage of UFOs

Mellon is one of hundreds of “high-ranking” people who have been outspoken about this phenomenon. He’s even part of the team at To The Stars Academy, which was started by former Blink 182 Rockstar to bring the truth about UFOs into the mainstream in a credible way. On that team is a very impressive list of people including Steve Justice, the recently retired Director of the Aerospace division at Lockheed Martin.

In a quote on their website, he basically alludes to the point that these UFOs have been ‘collected’ somehow, which is evident by him stating that “we need to harvest these technologies from the Science Division to realize that capability.”

“This is a concept for an international point-to-point transportation craft that will erase the current travel limits of distance and time.  It mimics the capabilities observed in unidentified aerial phenomenon by employing a drive system that alters space-time metric. We have glimpses of how the physics of this works, but we need to harvest technologies from the Science Division to ‘realize’ the capability.”  – Steve Justice, Aerospace Division Director

Now, the reason why mainstream disclosure is so fishy is because we already have a a plethora of extremely credible sources emphasizing that we already know many of these objects are extraterrestrial. Take Norman Bergrun, for example, a mechanical engineer who has worked for Ames Research Laboratory, NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics), and Lockheed Missiles and Space Company (now known as Lockheed Martin). He then went on to found Bergrun Engineering and Research. When he talked about extraterrestrials, I listened. As explained in the article linked, he spoke of numerous encounters with UFOs, and even extraterrestrials that the government has had, and that these objects are known to be real within various circles.

Mellon never addressed that or how, as Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Defence Minister stated, the official policy is to “shoot first and ask questions after.” (source)

Not long ago, Dr. David Clarke, an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in England who was also the curator for The National Archives UFO project from 2008–13, uncovered documents showing how British intelligence has been desperate to ‘take down’ these objects and figure out how they work. You can read more about that here.

Evidence proving that objects have been successfully taken down is a completely different subject, but as Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14) told the world, “yes there have been crashed crafts, and bodies recovered.” (source)

Furthermore, government disclosure has always been subject to deception and misinformation, often being used in some manner to ‘trick’ the population into justifying a specific solution or action step. Are UFOs going to be the same thing? Is mainstream UFO disclosure something for us to be wary of and take with a grain of salt?

All important things to think about, for sure.

The Takeaway

The disclosure of a reality that’s been hidden from us throughout all of history would be huge. It would leave no aspect of humanity untouched, have huge implications, and really open up pandora’s box. There are a lot of questions to be answered, and a lot of information is still going unacknowledged by these mainstream articles. However, so far they’ve done a decent job of bringing it out in a credible way, but where do they want to take it? If these objects present some sort of “threat,” a narrative that also seems to be common amongst recent mainstream UFO disclosure, are they simply going to use that to justify the weaponization of space? There are so many questions. Although some of them could pose a threat, if you’ve looked into this topic, it seems that these objects are harmless and have probably been around longer than we have. If any type of doomsday scenario was going to occur, it probably would have already happened.

Our Hearts Are Broken: They Are Not Only Censoring Julian Assange, But Collective Evolution As Well

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Not only Julian Assange, but journalists and media outlets around the world are being heavily censored. Not only is their content being censored, but their revenue streams have been taken away.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is this happening? What ever happened to the freedom of information and the freedom of speech? What's really going on here?

What’s happening to media today is both heartbreaking and crazy, and we’re not sure how many people are actually aware of the Orwellian-type of censorship that’s currently taking place in our world. When it comes to geopolitics, things have become quite clear within the past few years. There is a general consensus among many political leaders and academics that, for a long time, there has been a deliberate manipulation of the opinions of the masses, and the individuals behind this “unseen mechanism, constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power” of global geopolitics. Our minds are “molded, our tastes formed” and our ideas are “suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” (Edward Bernays)

One of the ways in which this manipulation was accomplished was through mainstream media; however, thanks to the birth of social media, mainstream media was no longer the only voice being heard. In fact, outlets like Collective Evolution began reaching tens of millions of people per month, overshadowing many popular mainstream media outlets.

Now, Collective Evolution has been censored by “the ministry of truth.” This ministry is made up of pharmaceutical companies and funders like Bill Gates, and is overseen by the Atlantic Council, which has ties to the Council on Foreign Relations. We recently wrote about one of these ‘fact checkers’ called NewsGuard.

What’s happening here is the censorship of information that threatens various corporate and political interests. This information gained the attention of the masses simply because it was presented in a credible way that often couldn’t be countered. Julian Assange is a great example, as he has been ‘scooped’ up by ‘the powers that be,’ not because he threatens national security interests, but because for more than a decade he’s been exposing the lies, deceit and corruption that plague geopolitics. Recently, Assange was hit with another 17 criminal charges under the Espionage Act, as a federal grand jury in Virginia returned a brand new indictment that added 17 more charges to the original charge Assange was handed in March 2018. You can read more about that story here.

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden reacted on Twitter, stating that “The Department of Justice just declared war – not on Wikileaks, but on journalism itself. This is no longer about Julian Assange: This case will decide the future of media.” This statement is true.

The only reason some people may support the arrest of Assange is simple: brainwashing. The establishment still has a grip on the consciousness of many people with regards to several different topics, and as a result, they are able to justify their actions. Thankfully, with every year that passes, more people seem to be ‘waking up’ to what’s really going on here.

Below is the response from Wikileaks about the most recent indictment against Assange via their Facebook Page.

What Happened To Us Here At Collective Evolution & Why We’re Hoping CETV Does Well

What happened to us here at Collective Evolution is not much different. Our revenue streams have been taken away, our Youtube account has been demonetized, and our Facebook page has been censored and its reach has been restricted. Thus, tens of thousands of dollars per month have been taken away from us, money that was crucial in helping us do what we do. It’s simple: The best way for the global elite to continue their war on information is to take away the revenue streams of those who are putting it out there. This has been heartbreaking for us, as we have had to layoff several of our employees, making our jobs more difficult.

It’s insane to go from watching your platform have twenty million people on it per month, to then all of a sudden have social media giants like Facebook, which has become a revolving door of government employees, restrict your page. Even Google’s getting in on the censorship. When this happened around the time of the 2016 elections and Collective Evolution was accused of working for the Russian government, our views dropped nearly 100 percent.

This is a huge violation of human rights. We are living in a world where our rights are being taken away without anybody even noticing.

The only thing we could do was create CETV.  This is a platform where we are supported by YOU, the people who enables us to continue doing what we do.

CETV is a platform where we have exclusive interviews, original shows and how-to guides, with new content being added every week! You can access it from desktop or mobile, FireTV, Roku, iOS, Android and AppleTV.

Soon, we’ll be adding CE Connect to the mix, where you can work directly with us to create journalism and get involved in changing the world through action and inner change. You can become a member of CETV here. 

Mainstream media is funded by the government, intelligence agencies, and corporations. And yes, there is proof in support of that, which you can read more about here. It’s time to have more platforms that are able to openly discuss and share information without having to worry about censorship or being on the radar of mainstream media.

Here are 5 Reasons to subscribe to CETV.

This is now our only hope for survival before we are completely erased from the internet by the powers that be. So for those of you who are supporting us, we thank you for being part of the transparency movement.

The Takeaway

You know something is up when our abilities to simply question information and share information are blocked and prevented from getting out into the world. It’s not really fair that a small group of corporations completely own all media, nor is it fair that they have the power to shut down any other platform that does not suit their interests.

At the end of the day, it’s another ‘event’ that’s simply waking up more people and allowing them to see what’s really going on. However, the fact that it’s being done silently and quietly is quite concerning.

Help Support Collective Evolution

The demand for Collective Evolution's content is bigger than ever, except ad agencies and social media keep cutting our revenues. This is making it hard for us to continue.

In order to stay truly independent, we need your help. We are not going to put up paywalls on this website, as we want to get our info out far and wide. For as little as $3 a month, you can help keep CE alive!

Why Fantasy-Based Claims Always Crash & Burn: The Big Picture About UFOs & Extraterrestrials

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    One of the world's leading researchers on the topic of UFOs shares why it's important to stick to evidence, as well as evidence that is credible when examining the topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials.

  • Reflect On:

    It's OK to believe something, or have a specific viewpoint, but to share that viewpoint as truth when there is no evidence or corroborating information within this field is irresponsible. Has this field been infiltrated by misinformation campaigns?

There are many great quotes about UFOs and extraterrestrials. One of the most revealing quotes comes from the very first director of the CIA, Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter, who informed people that although UFOs are very real and the Air Force is very concerned with them, there has been an “official campaign of secrecy and ridicule.” (source)

In my opinion, this campaign has permeated the field of UFO research to this day, and it thrives by disseminating information that can’t really be verified or corroborated in any way, and really does nothing but harm when it comes to the credibility and understanding of the topic. There are some ridiculous claims out there, including those made by “whistleblowers” who have no proof to verify who they claim to be.

Meanwhile, in regards to legitimate evidence and credibility, there is a plethora of information one can use in order to see that the topic of UFOs and the potential for extraterrestrial intelligence is a very real and serious issue.

“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations. Who they are, where they are from, and what they want should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not be the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.”  –Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

Apart from statements given by hundreds of people with very credible and interesting backgrounds, we also have pictures, video footage, radar trackings, declassified documents, and much more in support of the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon. This type of evidence has existed for decades. For example, here’s a CIA document from decades ago that also cites another incident.

The document states as follows:

advertisement - learn more

“ANTARCTIC FLYING SAUCERS” – A group of red, green, and yellow flying saucers has been seen flying over Deception Island for two hours by Argentine, Chilean and British bases (military) in Antarctica. The flying saucers were also seen flying in formation over the South Orkney islands in quick circles.”

It’s one of thousands of examples. When it comes to military encounters with UFOs, a good example comes from Iran in 1976 (need correct year!). Two F-4 interceptor pilots reported seeing the object visually, and it was tracked on their airborne radar. Both planes experienced critical instrumentation and electronics went offline at a distance of twenty-five miles from the object. Here is an excerpt from the declassified report:

“As the F-4 approached a range of 25 nautical miles it lost all instrumentation and communications. When the F-4 turned away from the object and apparently was no longer a threat to it, the aircraft regained all instrumentation and communications. Another brightly lighted object came out of the original object. The second object headed straight toward the F4.”   (source)

These are just a few examples showing us that something strange is going on. When it comes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis, it’s vital that we take information from only verified credible sources.

“It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.” –  Herman Oberth, one of the founding fathers of rocketry and aeronautics (source)

Take, for example, Dr. Norman Bergrun, a mechanical engineer who has worked for Ames Research Laboratory, NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics), and Lockheed Missiles and Space Company (now known as Lockheed Martin). He then went on to found Bergrun Engineering and Research. When he talked about extraterrestrials, I listened. However, when someone with no proof of who they are makes claims that don’t corroborate with any other information, it’s very hard to listen and take them seriously. That’s not the case with Dr. Norman Bergrun.

Below is a video by Richard Dolan, an academic and scholar who happens to be one of the world’s leading researchers on the topic of UFOs. He has many great and informative videos on his youtube channel, which contain some very interesting discussions. One of his latest is titled “Why Fantasy-Based Claims Always Crash & Burn. The Big Picture.”

“The UFO subject is inherently difficult. Assessing the evidence is often a challenge, but one that is necessary. An all-too-common pitfall of the subject is its vulnerability to claims based on fantasy. We can do better. Claims like ascension, or of alleged secret space wars on Mars or time travel and the like, all of these claims without evidence eventually inevitably come crashing down. We watch them rise, we watch them fall. We see them enter our community like a virus, spreading a kind of mental sickness, but then eventually dying out. They have to, because without genuine evidence, any claim is eventually going to be discarded. How can it not be, but in the meantime they enter our lives, confuse our thought processes and cause disruption, they leave us worse off and not better off. And the reason for that is simple, lies and deceptions never make us better. They don’t make us better people, even if some believers in them are well meaning. They don’t make us better because they’re illusions. And also, to continually believe in things without asking for evidence ultimately weakens your mind. Engaging in that kind of mental process over and over corrodes your ability to understand and evaluate actual evidence. It corrodes your analytical and reasoning abilities, you simply give up control of your mind.” (Quote taken from video below)

The Takeaway

I don’t want anybody to be insulted by what Dolan said. When it comes to this topic, it has huge implications and leaves no area of humanity untouched. It’s okay to entertain claims and dive deep into researching people who have claimed to have contact experiences, for example. Dolan does plenty of that in the multiple books he’s written on the topic. Exploration and examination are important, but it’s best to only claim something is a ‘fact’ if it can be verified using evidence, especially when exploring a topic as vast as this one.

When it comes to the implications of this topic, of course there are spiritual implications, technological implications, and broader implications that could change our collective perception of reality. When it comes to ‘good’ and ‘bad,’ of course there could be ‘good’ and ‘bad’ entities, but all we can do for now is explore the evidence. This is not to say that we can’t explore other topics and discuss certain theories and possibilities, but we must make it clear when we are doing so so that others know we are simply speculating. We must ultimately never spread speculation as truth or put a stamp on our claims saying that “this is correct.”

I do believe that all of the answers we seek lie within us, although that may be “spiritual mumbo jumbo” to some. The point is, I will never share my thoughts, feelings and intuitive beliefs as ‘facts’ about the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon, and if I do share my beliefs, I will always make it clear that I am sharing something I cannot provide evidence for. However, I don’t like to do that with regards to UFOs because I prefer to share factual, evidence-based information. I am on a mission to reach as many people on the planet as I can to let them know that this is something that demands our attention. The only way to do that is to provide evidence, and there is more than enough of that. I also believe very few people have access to the “answers within,” simply because we’ve never been taught how to listen to that voice and we are overloaded with sensory experiences from the day we are born. But that’s another topic!
