Sweden recently became the first European Union (EU) member in Western Europe to officially recognize the state of Palestine. As several others across Europe have done the same.

Last week, Swedish prime minister followed through with his plans, as The Swedish Foreign Ministry posted a message on Twitter making their announcement and stated that they “expressed hopes for a peaceful coexistence with Israel and Palestine.” (source)

“Our decision comes at a critical time because over the last year we have seen how the peace talks have stalled, how decisions over new settlements on occupied Palestinian land have complicated a two-state solution and how violence has returned to Gaza. By making our decision we want to bring a new dynamic to the stalled peace process. We are now ready to take the lead. We hope this can show the way for others” (source)

According to the New York Times Israel fears that the move by Sweden could lead other influential European countries to follow suit, something that Israeli officials say would pre-empt the results of future negotiations over a  Palestinian state with agreed borders. (source)

According to Israel:

” The decision of the Swedish government to recognize a Palestinian state is a deplorable decision which only strengthens extremist elements and Palestinian rejectionism.” (source)

The Muslim territories in the Gaza strip and West Bank have been searching for independence from the Jewish occupiers for many years. This conflict is one of the most tragic and prolonged conflicts in human history , supposedly between Israel and Hammas, with Hammas being labelled as “terrorists” by Israel and used as constant justification for the destruction of Palestine and murder of innocent civilians.

Western corporate media has bombarded the populace with the idea that Israel has the right to defend itself. Is this another 9/11 scenario? Are Israel and the United States supporting, sponsoring, and encouraging “terrorism” in order to justify acts of war? For some kind of agenda that much of the mainstream world doesn’t even know about? What do you think? Is Israel systematically whipping out an entire race? Is Hammas not letting up, leaving Israel with no choice?

It’s never wrong to ask questions.

More people are starting to ask these questions, and there are a number of differing opinions on the subject. Here’s one of them from Abby Martin at Rt news.

HERE is a video of Senator David Norris, an Irish academic, senator and civil rights activist. He’s been credited with a number of successes, including overthrowing the anti-homosexuality law in 1988 after a fourteen-year campaign. A video of him has popped up on the world wide web and seems to be getting lots of attention. In it, he condemns Israel for their actions in Gaza, expressing how he feels they are defying the world and using the Holocaust to justify what they are doing.

What Can We Learn From This Conflict?

As always, when it comes to global conflict and the political agendas involved, it’s hard to know what is really happening and why it’s happening. More and more people, everyday, are losing complete trust in corporate media for their lack of ability to provide people with truthful information.

At the end of the day all of this boils down to human beings killing other human beings. This isn’t really a religious conflict as we’ve been made to believe. No religion on the planet preaches this kind of behavior. Regardless of what you believe, there is absolutely no justification for murder, and it should never be considered a solution to any problem.

What is happening in Gaza is something that does not need to be a part of the human experience anymore. This is something no human being desires or agrees with, regardless of weather you believe that these conflicts are purposely manufactured and prolonged or not. Nobody resonates with this type of activity unless their consciousness can be manipulated to justify  and accept murder which we’ve seen happen before.

It’s time to snap out of it, wake up and stop participating in it.

At the same time, it is natural and important for us to critically question what is really happening because it can be hard see solutions when what is really happening is not well understood or cloaked in secrecy.

It’s hard to comment on an issue where much of the world (I believe) has been left in the dark regarding the truth behind this conflict. The fact that Western media has been the source of information coming out of the region makes it hard to present something that takes a completely different perspective, so I’m going to stay away from it.

The fact that we still have to protest the murder of innocent people as we approach 2015 is ridiculous. Imagine living on a planet where there was no conflict. I’m not a dreamer, the solutions are there and we have the potential to create something like that. Human beings, at birth, in their most natural state prior to entering a world of mass programming, are peaceful, loving accepting creatures. We are taught and programmed to behave the way we do today.

Imagine how far we would go, and how we would be able to use our resources and intelligence to leap into greater discovery about ourselves, the true nature of our reality and more, if we could all learn to cooperate together.

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?
