The western powers of the world, America and Europe in particular, have taken advantage of their dominant role on the world stage to pursue their selfish ambitions. Their financial and military might for the past 100 years has kept them in complete control over world affairs. Their influence over international institutions like the UN, World Bank and IMF has made sure that they received cooperation from the rest of the world and their financial interest and commercial beneficiaries have reaped the rewards of this power. But now that looks like it’s all coming to an end as both America and Europe edge closer towards economic insolvency due to overspending, debt, and inflation while at the same time, the global community continues to learn about the corruption and deceit from the west. With China and Russia leading the way, countries around the globe are making moves and positioning themselves for a world less dominated by America and the west.

A World Dominated By The West

For generations, American and European forces have been able to operate without much resistance due to their military and economic influences in the world. A whole article could be spent on discussing the military component but I’ll stick to the economics. In 1945, both the World Bank and the IMF were created after WW2, to help with the devastation of the war. The World Bank being American dominated and the IMF being European dominated, these two international institutions have been in charge of the development of third-world nations by supplying loans for infrastructure and capital projections. In this scheme, a lot of debt is accumulated on behalf of the countries who take on these loans and the money used for the projects goes straight into the pockets of western corporations. There has been plenty of evidence to suggest that the whole process is filled with corruption and that these institutions are more destructive than helpful by gaining leverage over countries that can’t pay back its debt. Anyone who is interested can look up the work of John Perkins or James Henry.

The other way the west is dominant, especially the United States, is because of their currency and their central banks. Both the dollar and euro are seen as reliable and thus valuable currencies because they are used by multiple countries keeping them in high demand. But the US dollar is the reserve currency of the world, the majority of countries trade in dollars, giving the dollar a really high demand. The dollar standard was decided upon the world at the same time the IMF was created, during the Bretton Woods Conference. This monopoly of money gives incredible power to the Federal Reserve that can print US dollars at will for their own use and still have many other countries use it. But back in ’45 they couldn’t print dollars at will, or at least not do so and keep an honest gold price since the money was still backed by gold. So as the US govt. spending increased and the debt grew, more countries started asking to exchange their dollars for gold, and Nixon had no choice but to un-link the dollar from gold in ’71, which made the reserve currency of the world strictly paper. Without gold holding them back, the US government could now spend unlimited amounts of money and just print what they couldn’t tax. All this money printing is called inflation in economic terms. It erodes the value of the currency leading to higher prices. The only reason why the US dollar has not collapsed yet is because of its status as reserve currency. But it now appears that the other nations of the world have grown tired of the fix in the game and have set course to change the current system.

Rise Of The BRICS

The foreign ministers of Brazil, Russia, India and China first met in 2006(1), possibly anticipating the financial crisis that was to come in 2008. The BRIC nations had their first official summit in 2009, discussing the need for reform within the global economy and critical issues that faced the world including food security and a lack of representation of developing countries on the world stage(2). In 2010, South Africa became the 5th nation to join, giving the African continent a voice in the emerging international coalition (3). In 2014, the five countries capitalized their own international development bank to rival the World Bank and IMF.

In the last several years, there has been plenty of rhetoric coming from both Russia and China about the need for a new reserve currency (4). Realizing the inevitable demise of the dollar due to the large amounts of inflation America is creating to finance their government and supplement their weak economy; China, Russia and other countries have been using their US dollar reserves to buy gold (5). China, the number one producer and importer of gold(6), has over 1 trillion worth of US government debt that it knows can only be paid back in soon-to-be worthless currency. If they wanted to, China could avoid this loss by dumping their US treasures on the market, but this act would hurt every country holding US dollars. So instead, for now, they are accumulating gold by the boat load and quietly moving away from the dollar, as are other countries as they prepare for a bad crash in America.

China, leading the charge, has gone all over the world to sign new trade agreements, currency deals and contracts with dozens of countries (7). Their biggest contract was signed this past march, when Russia and China agreed on a 30-year gas deal where Russia would sell its gas for 400b for the next 30-years to China. In the contract there were many supplement agreements, including forgoing the US dollar and using their own currencies (8). Russia has also been busy. Coming back from the World Cup, Putin cemented ties and signed agreements with Cuba, Argentina and Brazil (9). Although the EU has supported America in sanctioning Russia, much of Europe would rather not see this happen, as many of the countries depend on Russian gas and trade with Russia (10). France’s finance minister has come out and attacked the current dollar system, calling for the ability of countries to use a variety of currencies in global trade (11). There are rumors coming out of Mexico that a significant number of wealthy citizens want the country to move to a silver standard. If this were to happen, tons of capital would flow into Mexico and they would see a substantial rise in the value of their currency. This global trend to move away from the dollar financially, has translated over into moving away from America politically, as the world learns more about America’s foreign policy and devious activities.

The Decline Of America’s Credibility And Influence

The lack of coverage on America’s foreign policy from the western mainstream media should come as no surprise when the content of all traditional media in each country is controlled by several corporations. But in other parts of the world, the crimes of America are well known. Like the death of innocent civilians, overthrowing of legitimate governments, covert CIA operations, and just a blatant disregard for human life. The foreign policy of America has them making only a few friends but lots of enemies as their credibility deteriorates (12). Iran has been a long-time target of America due to worries of an Iranian nuclear weapon. Iran claims their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes and has the support of China and Russia but America hit Iran with sanctions anyways. But the sanctions backfired as it forced Iran to sell its oil in other currencies instead of the dollar. Russia is bartering equipment and goods for Iran’s oil, India is paying in rupees, China uses their Yuan, and Japan uses the Yen. These countries completely dismissed America’s sanctions and it led to an oil-producing-nation dealing outside of dollars. (13)

In May of last year, when Edward Snowden told the world that the NSA was spying on everyone, including political leaders, a shockwave was sent throughout the geopolitical sphere as Heads of State all around the world were not too pleased with America (14). Germany, in particular, has become very irate with America. Germany had already, several months prior, asked for their gold reserves to be shipped back to Germany from America but they refused leading to speculation as to both why Germany wanted its gold back and why America refused (15). Germany eventually accepted the decision, but now after hearing about the NSA’s operations and just recently finding two American spies working for the German government, Germany might be singing a different tune towards America.

Three months after Snowden’s leaks, international relations were at odds as the Syrian crisis was heating up and both America and parts of Europe accused Assad of releasing chemicals weapons on his people and demanded retribution by bombing Assad. Russia and China made their objections known and vetoed several UN resolutions that came from the west. Public opinion in America was strongly against the strikes so Obama couldn’t get enough support from congress. So for the first time, the western powers weren’t able to get their way. This led countries like Israeli and Saudi Arabia, close allies to the US, to publicly criticize America for failing to act. (16)

America has been called upon to play a big role in many areas of the world; providing protection, weapons and aid to numerous countries, America’s military budget was $640 billion in 2013, which was more than the next 9 countries combined (17). America has been supplying the rebels in Syria with weapons as they did with the ones in Libya (18). So when Ukraine falls into a civil war between the government/military and Pro-Russian separatist, it must be eye-opening for world leaders to see America’s hypocrisy as it gets infuriated over Russia’s very restraint actions. 95% of Crimeans wanted to join Russia and much of eastern Ukraine does as well because they’re ethnic-Russians and their land use to be part of Russia (19). The vote of Crimea’s referendum outlines an important question. Who owns the land? Is it the people or the government? If you argue the case that it’s the people; that they have a right to self-determination, then you would support the referendum of Crimea and their joining of Russia. The west did not support the idea and so the US wrote up a draft resolution at the UN to nullify the decision. 13 nations supported it but it was vetoed by Russia; China didn’t vote (20). America and other countries then began to sanction Russia and blame Putin for causing the unrest in Ukraine.

The geopolitical changes that have occurred, and the ones that are still in motion, show the fading of an old world order as America and Europe continue to lose its power and influence. There is no guarantee that China and Russia will do a better job but the emergence of the BRICS nations and the creation of their own bank demonstrate that they won’t go at it alone. We can only wait and see what comes next?

Melinda Gates Was Concerned About Her Husband’s Relationship With Jeffrey Epstein, WSJ Reveals

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Wall Street Journal is reporting that one possible reason for the divorce of Bill and Melinda gates may be due to his supposed relationship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

  • Reflect On:

    Did you know that elite child sex trafficking may be a real issue among certain circles? We are bringing attention to this recent story to bring awareness to this fact.

Before you begin...

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

Make sure you follow Collective Evolution on Telegram as we have no idea how much longer we will be on Facebook.

What Happened: Bill and Melinda Gates recently announced that they will be divorcing. They haven’t revealed the specific reason for their divorce, but the Wall Street Journal has reported that one source of concern for Ms. Gates “was her husband’s dealing with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, according to the people and a former employee of their charity, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Ms. Gate’s concern about the relationship dated as far back as 2013, the former employee said.”

Business Insider explains:

Sources told The Daily Beast last week that Bill Gates’ willingness to meet as early as 2011 with Epstein — who by then had already pleaded guilty to soliciting an underage girl in 2008 — “still haunts” Melinda Gates. According to the outlet, the couple met with Epstein in New York City at his Upper East Side mansion in September 2013. Sources told The Daily Beast that soon after the meeting, Melinda Gates told friends of her discomfort during the encounter. Several people close to the couple reportedly said she was “furious” over her husband’s relationship with Epstein. Bill Gates told The Journal in 2019 that he was not friends with Epstein. Documents reviewed by The Journal say that after The New York Times first reported in October 2019 that Bill Gates had met more than once with Epstein, Melinda Gates called her advisors multiple times.

According to the National Post, days before Epstein died in a New York Prison he named venture capitalist Boris Nikolic as a backup executor of his will. Nikolic had worked as a science advisor to Bill Gates. The Post goes on to mention that in an emailed statement at the time, “Nikolic told Bloomberg that Epstein had not consulted him about the will and that he had no intention to fulfill the duties.”

Nikolic is seen in the picture above on the left side of Gates. The others, from the left are, at the time, a senior JP Morgan executive James E. Staley, former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers, Mr. Epstein and of course Bill Gates.

This is the only other connection between Gates and Epstein that seems to exist. Gates met with Epstein in 2011, 2013 and 2018 it appears although no information as to why is available. Rumours related to philanthropy seem to be the reason but again, these meetings had occurred after Epstein was a convicted sex offender.

In 2014, multiple media outlets reported that police arrested  a Seattle man at the Gates’ mansion for allegedly collecting more than 6,000 child rape photos. Rick Allen Jones, reportedly employed as an engineer at the Gates’ home, is also accused of trading pornography images via Gmail. None of the activity Jones was involved in occurred at the Gates’ residence except for his arrest.

Why This Is Important: It’s no doubt odd that Bill Gates would meet with Epstein multiple times, especially after he was convicted as a sex offender. Perhaps these meetings were the only ones made public and there were more we don’t know about? Who really knows, we will probably never get the truth as to why they had this kind of relationship, if you can even call it that. We’ve seen the same thing with Prince Andrew, except Bill Gates doesn’t have any sexual offence accusations against him like Andrew does.

 Last year the former CEO of Reddit, Ellen K. Pao, tweeted that Ghislaine Maxwell “was at the Kleiner holiday party in 2011” but she “had no desire to meet her much less have a photo taken with her. We knew about her supplying underage girls for sex, but I guess that was fine with the “cool” people who managed the tightly controlled guest list.” After the tweet, Pao removed it and then made her profile private.

Maxwell, Epstein’s close associate is now on trial facing multiple sex offences and child sex trafficking charges, just like Epstein. It’s concerning that many people  seemed to be well aware of Epstein’s activities yet nobody really went public.

The Epstein saga, and all of the strange connections that go along with it are important because it highlights a very real problem that doesn’t seem to receive enough attention within the mainstream, and that’s the issue of supposed elite level child sex trafficking.

These kinds of rumours are quite prevalent among high ranking people, as a paper published in European Psychiatry details:

Research eventually led to the Franklin scandal that broke in 1989 when hundreds of children were apparently flown around the US to be abused by high ranking ‘Establishment’ members. Former state senator John W DeCamp, cited as one of the most effective legislators in Nebraska history, is today attorney for two of the abuse victims. A 15 year old girl disclosed that she had been abused since the age of 9 and was exposed since the age of 9 and was exposed to ‘ritual murder’ of a new born girl, a small boy (who was subsequently fried and eaten) and three others.

It’s a very deep issue, with countless examples of accusations and convictions involving high ranking people which include Vatican officials, Royal Family members, Prime Ministers, Presidents, politicians, Hollywood elite, financial elite and many more. You can read about more examples here if interested.

Sonia Poulton, a British journalist, social commentator, and filmmaker, has been investigating the dark web of pedophilia for years. Some of her research has been compiled into a documentary called “Pedophiles In Parliament.” You can access that here if interested.

We have conducted an interview with a survivor of elite child sex trafficking/slavery. You can access the full interview and start your free trial HERE on CETV, a platform we created to help combat internet censorship and allow us to continue to do our work and get the word out about various issues and topics.

The Takeaway: Much has come to light over the past few years regarding this issue, but if it is prevalent at the highest levels, how can it be stopped? If those with the power to stop this issue and the ones we approach to deal with this issue are involved, what steps can we take? Take Cardinal George Pell, for example, a high ranking Vatican official who was convicted of child sexual abuse. His charges were dropped and he was set free. It’s disturbing to contemplate the idea that Cardinal George Pell is or would be involved in such things, after all, he himself established The Diocesan Commission Into Sexual Abuse in 1996.

Perhaps some of those whom we view as idols, or gods and saviours are actually not what they seem? Perhaps it’s time for humanity to turn to itself instead of continually relying on big politics and powerful people to solve our issues. Perhaps that’s why they never get solved? Politics has become a cesspool of corruption and a system that does not seem to be adequate at dealing with many of the issues we face today, yet we continually turn to it for answers and permission. Given the amount of corruption within the system, the idea that sex trafficking is prevalent in some of these circles should come as no surprise.

The mainstream has failed to have appropriate conversations around elite level child sex trafficking and pedophilia, many people would consider it to be a “conspiracy theory” if you brought it up to them. It really goes to show how media sources have become a hub for disinformation and perception manipulation in many areas. It’s important to start having these discussions if we are going to make any progress with regards to solving it, regardless of how unbelievable it may seem.

Why Can’t We Question COVID’s Origins?

Recall back to the beginning of the COVID pandemic and discussion were had about the origins of the virus. Was it naturally occurring, coming from an infected bat sold in a wet-market in China, or was it created in a lab and leaked whether on purpose or accidentally? At the time, the ladder was sharply considered a conspiracy theory, and if you ask most people today, inevitably including fact checkers, they will tell you this is true – COVID coming from a lab is a mere conspiracy theory.

But still today, many don’t agree with this hypothesis.

On May 3rd, journalist Nicholas Wade, a science writer who has worked on the staff of Nature, Science and, for many years, on the New York Times, penned an extremely lengthy piece on Medium called: Origin of Covid — Following the Clues.

In it he explores how the ‘debunking’ of the lab origins story came to be, and the stark conflict of interest associated with the letter published by the Lancet claiming the virus was naturally occurring. The letter was written by Dr. Peter Daszak, president of the EcoHealth Alliance of New York. His organization funded coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This means Dr. Daszak would at least partly responsible for COVID leaking from that lab if it in was made there and in fact had leaked. Yet this stark conflict of interest was never claimed in the Lancet letter that became the political piece that encouraged the world not to consider lab origins.

As time has gone on, as Wade suggests, the evidence that COVID indeed originated in a lab continues to mount:

After all, the more months pass without the natural emergence theory gaining a shred of supporting evidence, the less plausible it may seem. Perhaps the international community of virologists will come to be seen as a false and self-interested guide. The common sense perception that a pandemic breaking out in Wuhan might have something to do with a Wuhan lab cooking up novel viruses of maximal danger in unsafe conditions could eventually displace the ideological insistence that whatever Trump said can’t be true.

Make no mistake, and I have to write this in or else we risk further demonetization and de-platforming, mainstream media and fact checkers will assure you COVID did not originate in a lab.

As I read through Wade’s extensive research into the origins of COVID, I began to see a possible pattern: the same ridicule and shutting down of scientific conversation regarding the origins of COVID that occurred throughout 2020 appears to be occurring right now when scientists and virologists question current vaccinations and roll out methods.

Multiple scientists have drawn questions about COVID vaccines, and they are only met with censorship and the label of “anti-vaxxer”, even when they are themselves pro-vaccine.

We had a discussion about this, and we also gave an inside look at how internet fact checking and Big Tech are being sure vaccine  story doesn’t get out. We wanted to give people an inside look at how our narratives, and financial well being as a company, is held hostage until we agree with change them at the behest of internet fact checkers.

UFOs: More Advanced Intelligent Life Could Exist Right Here On Earth

CE Staff Writer 7 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The UFO phenomenon may not only be indicative of extraterrestrial life, but perhaps intelligent life from here on our planet, perhaps in other realms or dimensions that are not always perceivable to our senses.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is the UFO phenomenon receiving extreme amounts of legitimacy within the mainstream after years of ridicule?

Before you begin...

Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), now commonly known as Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAPs) have become a big topic of discussion within the mainstream as of late. We are talking about objects that have been photographed, videotaped, tracked on radar, and seen by high ranking military personnel as well as civilians on the ground and in air-craft. These objects perform maneuvers and travel at speeds no known man made piece of machinery can. They truly defy our understanding of aerodynamics and, and in some cases, physics.

The next discussion to arise is, are those manning these craft human or something else?

Based on my years of research, just as there was strong evidence for the existence of these objects decades ago when they were deemed a conspiracy theory, there is strong evidence now, and in my opinion, there is evidence these objects are not human made.

As far as credible sources that support this idea, Colonel Robert Friend, in his very last interview before his death, who was a director of Project Blue Book from 1958-1962, suggested that the U.S. Air Force knew what these objects were even at that time. The former director of the Pentagon’s UFO program, Lue Elizondo, recently gave an interview to the NY Post saying that he had a meeting with a very senior Department of Defense official who mentioned he knew the craft were not of human origin as well. Former Air Force Colonel Ross Dedrickson also claimed to have information that these objects were not human made, and from what he knew, the beings are benevolent, concerned about the well being of our planet.

I recognize not all people will consider these sources ‘credible evidence.’

Beyond these testimonies are things like documented cases of sightings or “contact” experiences. According to these cases, people report both benevolent and malevolent experiences, often linked to the UFO phenomenon.

So, if they are not human, what are they? The obvious truth is, we don’t know, but there’s no harm in speculating.

Are They From Here?

Plato once said, as documented in Phaedo:

And upon the Earth are animals and men, some in a middle region, others (elementals) dwelling about the air as we dwell about the sea; others in islands which the air flows round, near the continent; and in a word, the air is used by them as the water and the sea are by us, and the ether is to them what the air is to us.

The truth is, much of our “reality” isn’t even perceivable to our human senses. We can only see within a tiny frequency of the entire visible light spectrum. We have to use special equipment like infrared telescopes and more to see things that we otherwise couldn’t. Quantum mechanics and the emergence of post-material science has shown us that there are “invisible” parts of what we perceive to be our physical and material world that make up the vast majority of it. Some, like Plato, referred to this as the ether, or aether. Who is to say that life does not dwell in these realms? They exist all around us, perhaps some of these objects originate from there – or as you might say, right here on Earth.

Another interesting quote from ancient philosophy:

“And they allowed Apollonius to ask questions; and he asked them of what they thought the cosmos was composed; but they replied; “Of elements.” “Are there then four?” he asked. “Not four,” said Larchas,  “but five.” “And how can there be a fifth,” said Apollonius, “alongside of water and air and earth and fire?” “There is the ether,” replied the other, “which we must regard as the stuff of which gods are made; for just as all mortal creatures inhale the wire, so do immortal and divine natures inhale the ether.” “Am I,” said Appollonius, “to regard the universe as a living creature?” “Yes,” said the other. – The Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Philostratus, 220AD (source)

Even Rene Descartes proposed the theory that “space,” (what we perceive as empty space) is completely filled with matter in various states. There is evidence to suggest he was executed by the Church because his science entered into the realm of metaphysics.

Many ancient cultures have stories and texts which refer to ‘magical’ and ‘mythical’ lands that co-exist alongside our reality. Whether these places are actual physical places, or places that reside in ‘another dimension,’ for lack of a better term, has been the subject of great discussion within various material throughout the ages. These stories can be found in ancient Buddhism and Vedic philosophy, along with oral stories passed down from Native cultures throughout the world.

According to Paracelsus, a German-Swiss physician and alchemist (like Issac Newton) who established the role of chemistry in medicine, in his Philosophia Occulta, translated by Franz Hartmann: 

“Man lives in the exterior elements and the Elementals live in the interior elements. The latter have dwellings and clothing, manners and customs, languages and governments of their own, in the same sense as the bees have their queens and herds of animals their leaders.” The Secret Teachings of All Ages, An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, 1928, Manly P. Hall

What’s also interesting is that these objects are commonly observed entering or exiting our oceans. Sometimes when they “fly away” they don’t appear to fly away, but rather dematerialize. In other cases they are observed “taking off” at tremendous speeds.

The point is, there could be a number of different explanations, and chances are not all objects originate from the same source. It truly calls into question what we think we know about the nature of reality. And I feel we’re at an important time to question this curiously. Recall that there was a time when scientists, like Galileo, were condemned for the discoveries that they made and ideas they presented. Are we really any different today? How open are or minds to concepts of reality that don’t fit within the current framework of accepted knowledge?

One thought I’ve often had is that it can feel concerning to that topics like UFOs have to be presented in mainstream media before most will see it as legitimate. Footage has to be verified by the Pentagon, as it recently was, for the masses to realize that these objects are indeed real. Less than a decade ago the evidence for the existence of these objects was already very strong.  Yet we have to be told by government or mainstream media before the general populace can see it as real?

Does this highlight just how reliant humanity has become on these sources for information? What are the implications of that? As with so many geopolitical issues, it’s hard to trust mainstream media, or government for that matter, to get an accurate depiction of what’s really happening. This is why I am concerned that so many people rely on these sources when it comes to an honest depiction of the UFO phenomenon. Perhaps this phenomenon is one that requires a citizens initiative as well?

One thing to look out for with critical thinking is the US government’s suspicion that these objects are Russian or Chinese in origin. I believe this narrative is an effective to heighten the national security state, for no legitimate reason, while simultaneously controlling the extraterrestrial and/or other life hypothesis that goes with this phenomenon.

Perhaps they will paint these objects as a threat, even though the vast majority of the time these objects perform evasive maneuvers to avoid our own aircraft. We seem to be the ones chasing them.
