Russell Brand recently shared his thoughts on another current event that has touched many around the world. An event that took place in a country that we at CE are not only based in, but also one that doesn’t typically see events like this -at least by comparison to many others. This event is also prompting the Canadian to look at creating a less free nation as well as more power to the police.

“The incidents in Ottawa are being used to advance a narrative that will not only entitle them to further wars abroad, but will entitle them to inhibit our freedoms,” – Russell Brand

Russell talks a lot about the narrative and agenda that both Canada and Prime Minister Stephen Harper pushed across during his speech to address the nation regarding the attack. Before we get into the detail of that, I want to share a little anecdote.

The Purpose Of The Military?

I had a conversation not too long ago with someone in which we primarily spoke about the military. We mainly focused on the purpose of it and what it has been used for over the past decade. I was told that members of the military should be seen as heroes who are fighting for our freedom. Shocked by this statement I thought to myself, given the events of our world, how could anyone think this? Then I realized it is possibly an opinion gathered from watching mainstream media only. Possibly watching things like Stephen Harper’s speech which Russell addresses in the video below.

I believe there could be value in watching mainstream media, but one would have to look to multiple sources of information outside of the mainstream to actually get a true story of what is taking place. The idea behind this stems from the fact that 90% of mainstream media is owned by six corporations and thus you are likely hearing the narrative these six corporations are trying to push out.[1] The idea of biased media is not new as it can be seen with any news platform that contains a political bias. (Conservative, liberal, socialist etc.)

Does Harper’s Speech Have An Agenda?

The Harper government is already associating this event with ISIS yet no one knows what is going on. Even if it turns out that it’s not related to ISIS, the words will have been repeated enough in public ears that they will automatically think ISIS was involved and committed the act. Interestingly the new ISIS hype is stirring up all kinds of controversy and may not even be real threat. [5]

Brand makes a very interesting point by the end of the video. He proposes that a previous shooting that took place in Moncton, New Brunswick recently didn’t get the same attention as the National War Memorial shooting because it was done by a white Canadian and not someone who could be perceived as a foreign enemy -ultimately an individual who could help to justify foreign military deployment. Even though the previous shooting took the lives of three RCMP officers versus just the single life of Corporal Nathan Cirillo.

Not to pose value on anyone’s life more than another, but you would think both scenarios would be equally as important -no? Perhaps Russell is correct in his assumption?

No matter how you cut it, the idea of a terrorist threat seems to be a very hot topic and highly pushed idea in the mainstream media. With one of the biggest events justifying the war on terror (9/11) being highly controversial and heavily avoided by both the government and media when it comes to answering questions about what really happened, it’s difficult to say whether terrorism is a serious threat, or more so one proposed by leaders and the media to justify creating wars where the West attempts to gain control over other areas of the world.[2] After all, what have the wars over the past 13 years actually done other than end the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent people and cost tax payers exorbitant amounts of money? Perhaps they created a sense of increased safety, but there is no evidence to support that.

After all on the same day as this attack parliament quietly passed bill C-13, one of the most controversial pieces of legislation presented under the guise of cyberbullying. Even the mother of Amanda Todd who committed suicide due to cyberbullying spoke out against the bill stating “I don’t want to see our children to be victimized again by losing privacy right.” [3] Since bill C-13 contains proposals that would allow the Canadian government to spy on citizens online.

Again we have an increase of police control as well due to this attack. The Harper government wants to make terror arrests easier. “Accelerated review of police abilities is underway’ says public safety minister Steven Blaney. [4]

Are we really keeping our nation more free? Or do these types of “attacks,” which could be false flags like 9/11 likely is, have a different agenda behind them? Is the Prime Minister’s speech pushing this agenda forward?

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

The US recently released its highly anticipated Pentagon UAP report, but it wasn’t much more than a 9 page rundown of what has been known for decades. Regardless, for many, what was promising was that the UFO subject was being taken seriously again – and perhaps many more scientists might get involved.

For decades many have been warning about leaving UFO disclosure in the hands of a government that likes to use crisis’ or current events to expand its defense budgets. Further, why would we suddenly expect a government, who has been lying about this subject for 70 years, to suddenly come forth with the truth? What would inspire them to suddenly change their mind?

Perhaps it’s because the search for ET is an idea who’s time has truly come. We’ve reporting on this for over 13 years, and are mongst a community of researchers who have been encouraging humanity to look at the evidence for more than 70 years. It feels like an idea that human collective consciousness is more than ready to explore.

The impact the ET question has on our individual and collective worldview has the power to truly change the way we view ourselves and the meaning of life here on earth. Think of the implications answers to this question could have on how we set up and run our society as well. Technology, culture, collaboration etc – I spoke about this more in great detail in my extended interview for Greer’s. prior film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind here.

Now, a new documentary from Dr. Steven Greer, directed by my good friend Michael Mazzola, seeks to explore what the films calls “the current government and media disinformation campaign promoting 3 big lies:”

1. We do not know what these UAPs/ UFOs are. WE DO.
2. Humans cannot make craft that can maneuver like UFOs. WE CAN and WE DO.
3. The UFOs are a threat. THEY ARE NOT.

Bold statements. Watch the film below and see what resonates most with you.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
