Collective Evolution asked Lana a few questions about her new documentary, The Resonance, a film where experts not only provide proof of ET life but they also describe a new advanced world humanity is evolving into that includes community with ETs. We also asked her opinion on extraterrestrials and the state of human kind.

1. What Is Your Personal Connection To This Documentary?

The Resonance is my second feature length documentary and it features thirteen experts who are very brave for coming forth and sharing their perspectives on UFOs, ETs, and Human Consciousness. I applaud them. Prior to creating it, I produced and directed The Wellness Story documentary featuring twenty-nine health experts including Dr. John Demartini from The Secret movie. In The Wellness Story, viewers are given knowledge and skills to reclaim their health and maximize their potential at many levels of being: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Towards the end of that film and during the spiritual segment, one of the experts, Dr. Kathy Forti, an ex-clinical psychologist out of Santa Monica, California, explains her near death experience whereby she integrated with advanced benevolent beings that gave her downloads of information pertaining to physics. As a result, she was guided to create a healing technology. Also during that spiritual segment, the audience is given other glimpses into a wider reality (in front of them yet invisible to the physical eye) that is alive with intelligent beings that have been with humans for thousands of years, not just in modern times.

Having said all that, for me professionally, The Resonance was the next step as a documentary filmmaker to crack open for viewers this expanded reality and show what is there and who is there, such as the extraterrestrials. Gratefully, I was able to film many of the speakers in Brantford, Ontario at the Alien Cosmic Expo organized by Jo-Anne Eadie who is also in the film sharing Brantford’s UFO history.

On a personal level, I have been aware, for much of my life, of otherworldly beings occupying the same space as humans and who have pure, positive intentions to help the human race along, so I naturally and excitedly jumped at the opportunity to show that outlook through the visual medium of film with The Resonance.

2. Why Do You Feel It Is Important For People To Be Aware Of Extraterrestrials?

In The Resonance documentary UFO Researcher Grant Cameron explains, “Almost everybody who is an experiencer who has been on a UFO is shown the screen and on the screen they show the destruction of the earth, big huge tidal waves, environmental devastation, and the world blowing up. They are telling us, ‘you have the world at the edge of a cliff and you have to stop it. You have to quit cutting the leaves off the trees because eventually there will be no more trees.’ They are giving us a warning about how we are treating the world.”

The benevolent ETs would like to see humans create a world without pain, suffering, violence, and misery. Do you know that it is abnormal to be in pain, to be sick, to be poor, to feel unloved, to live in an environment that is polluted? Health is supposed to be normal. To be healthy, in the full expression of the word, also includes our expanded awareness of otherworldly beings that care about our survival. ETs are trying to connect with us and help us to be better, be healthier. These ETs operate from a place of true unconditional love.

Honourable Paul Hellyer, former Minister of National Defence for Canada, says in The Resonance that “there is a spiritual conflict. Some of the races I’ve been told are very spiritual more so by far than us on earth. They don’t go around killing each other and establishing empires and looking for more power and they are not greedy. They are what we keep saying we would like to be.”

3. Did You Face Some Resistance When Creating This Film?

One day, some of my production team and I were at an public event handing out flyers for the November 21 film premiere of The Resonance being held at the JJR Auditorium at the University of Toronto and put on by Modern Knowledge (thank you Chris Russak!). I won’t say where we were or mention names but I will say this: We met a professional woman, ET aware, who refused to take our flyers and promote the film after she read about a certain expert speaker in my film that she had butted heads with. So, in that sense, I experienced negative drama in the alien industry, and this is the very same drama that is inhibiting Unity Consciousness, the foundational consciousness that is needed for humans to successfully be in community with ETs. Unity Consciousness also extends to plants and animals.

In The Resonance, Crop Circle Filmmaker Patty Greer explains the fascinating crop circle delivery system, in that it is composed of three elements: ETs, Mother Earth, and Conscious Humanity. She goes on to explain how the messages in the crop circles come in various forms such as binary codes and pictograms. One year the pictograms were of fish, birds, and bugs. Shortly after was the BP Oil spill that killed fish, birds, and bugs. Clearly, humans need to learn to embrace and care for all living beings, that’s Unity Consciousness.

If I were to encounter hardcore resistance to my film I would treat it the way I encounter a person that is very skeptical about alternative medicine — overly skeptical from an unhealthy place. To them, I explain: “You need to look at what’s so special about being resistant to something that can help you and you need to figure out why your investment in resistance is part of your journey so that you can heal that issue. Since it’s an emotionally charged issue for you, anything with an emotional charge needs to be diffused. The goal of healing is to learn to self-regulate your emotions to zero point so you can evolve in consciousness.” There’s healthy resistance and then there’s non-sense resistance.

4. Have You Ever Personally Been Contacted By An ET Or Another Dimensional Being?

In The Resonance Judy Martene, and Intuitive Spiritual Counsellor, describes her positive ET abduction, if you can call abduction positive. As a result of this triggering event in her life she evolved in her understanding of reality to conclude that, “We are not alone on this planet, we never have been and we never will be.” I concur.

My doctorial work is in Transpersonal Psychology and Energy Medicine. I have studied the evolution of consciousness and our Higher Human Perceptual System. I chose this path of study and research because I was personally experiencing the expansion of my consciousness at a young age to include interaction with advanced, benevolent beings on a non-physical level. Throughout much of my life I have telepathically communicated with advanced beings, on a clairvoyant level I see them, and on a claircognizant level I receive downloads of knowledge from them. They have also been by my side guiding my healing practice, when let’s say, I am doing an energy healing on a patient. They teach me. As a result of my strong connection to them I have learned to stand confidently in the Light, thus I know there is nothing to truly fear. Having said that, my advice to readers who have been traumatized from being abducted by dysfunctional extraterrestrials is to heal any lingering victim consciousness and put the focus on the Light. Light and Dark cannot share the same space, you need to adamantly choose what side of the fence you are on. It’s a confidence game, that’s how you protect yourself and that’s how you mature into your potential.

An expert in The Resonance, Sandee Mac from Arizona, also an Energy Healer, works with people who have been traumatized by dysfunctional ETs and she disseminates exceptional words of wisdom around that subject. Another expert, Dr. Don Donderi, former psychology professor at McGill University, approaches abductions in the film from a scientist’s perspective.

Also in The Resonance, Jason Quitt, an Energy Healer, profoundly explains: “If we choose to have negative thought-forms, or addictions or obsessions, we are building an energy resonance within us that attracts certain beings towards us. It’s our choice to pull those energies towards us. It’s the same thing for those people who choose to meditate, eat healthy food, and study, you are actually changing your resonance to call on other beings that will want to help you or assist you. It all starts within you and you have full control over this.” Jason nailed it with that message. Ask yourself: What or who are you in resonance with? That’s a powerful personal growth question that can elicit healthy change.

5. What Is The Most Shocking Discovery About ETs You Made Through Your Research?

I have been working in the health field for 20 years now. I have seen all types of patients, young and old. I have seen all types of pain, injury, even the ugliest of diseases. I have heard all types of cries, all types of stories. I have witnessed all kinds of healings and miracles. I think that as a result of observing the worst and best in humans, nothing shocks me anymore, not even evil, scary looking aliens or the war driven humans that want to conquer the planet. Sorry, I wish I could give you something juicy! I guess I am immune to the shock factor. Nuclear Physicist Stanton Friedman says in The Resonance when he describes cases of UFOs that, “after you read the first 200 cases, it’s all the same stuff going on all over the planet.” After a while, UFOs and ETs become like second nature. I will say that I am fond of Susan Collins’ orb photos in my film which she explains can be of alien origin through proper intention.

The more that humans familiarize themselves with ETs and UFOS and the more they open up the conversation about ETs and UFOs, the more they will integrate the alien experience and the less shocking the whole topic will be. Honestly, it really shouldn’t be shocking. It should be a normal part of the human experience. On my “Health Matters” Rogers TV show I have addressed many topics that for some hosts are too heavy or controversial. I will sit with my panel of doctors as we openly discuss the penis, the vagina, and the corruption in our healthcare system. Why not add ETs to the conversation? Why would I ever want to limit myself in terms of the topics I discuss? That wouldn’t be good for my health.

Unfortunately, some media and other forces have sensationalized ETs to be shocking and to be feared. In The Resonance Michael Horn, American Media Representative for the Billy Meier Contacts, explains from his perspective that “back in the 30s the government enlisted the services of Orson Welles, actor and director, and H.G. Wells, the author of War of the Worlds. They were both forced under threat of death to carry through on a radio show scaring people with the fear of little green men landing in New Jersey.” Michael goes on to say, “Animal mutilations are not ET, it’s secret military. The agenda is to frighten people to control them, even a fake ET attack would be used to clamp down on everybody. 10,000 years, we’ve only had 250 scattered years of peace on this planet and it wasn’t because aliens were attacking us.”

6. Why Do You Think Some Countries, Like Mexico, The UK & Brazil, To Name A Few, Have Disclosed The Reality Of UFOs, & Other Countries, Like The United States Have Not?

I don’t know the agendas of those countries. I can say this: Humans have tipped consciousness in the direction of full-disclosure. That means there are more people in the population that seek truth than there are people who could care less or just aren’t aware. How do we know this? We are starting to see the release of information from higher powers and organizations. And, this disclosure momentum is building!

In The Resonance Victor Viggiani, M.Ed., News Director, explains receiving confidential documents from NORAD in regards to three CF-18s in Canada that made contact with UFOs at 35,000 feet. We show these documents. He explains that he is not sure why they gave him that information and that he thinks it was a mistake on their part. So, one way or another, the information is being made public… by accident or not. Then again, we know there are no accidents.

7. Do You Think There Was Good Intention In Keeping The ET Reality A Secret?

I am going to ask Richard Syrett, host of The Conspiracy Show, and also our fabulous emcee at the film premiere to flip that question to our panel of experts in the film, including Hon. Paul Hellyer, during our live Q and A following the screening and that will be live streamed. Hey, just so you know, people are encouraged to post their UFO and ET questions on our film Facebook page for our live web stream on November 21. Here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/theresonancedocumentary

For me, your question is interesting as it can be answered from different angles. For example, if we are answering it from the place of healing, then humans need to ask themselves: “What have we learned from being suppressed and having ET contact purposefully robbed from us? How has being suppressed and cut off from ETs served us?” From that healing perspective, having the contrast of suppression of ET contact has, one could say, inspired humans to move away from victim consciousness and towards finding the courage and strength within their hearts to push through the obstacles of lies and deception in order to reclaim their sovereignty. Triumph is always sweeter when it’s due to a long, hard won battle.

On the other hand, had there been no calculated suppression of ET contact and information, humans would have lived a very different lifestyle, a type of wondrous life they have the potential to discover. Everything always works out at some point and that’s because Collective Evolution cannot be stopped.

And on a third hand, on another dimension, there are no secrets.

8. Where Do You See The Future Of Humankind Going, Based Off All Your Research & Conversations With Others?

Humans are interesting in that they can create unnecessary pain and drama for themselves and I say that after observing hundreds of people over the many years in my therapy practice. For example, if I suggest to patients a natural, toxic free, safe, evidence-based solution to becoming healthier and point out the debilitating side effects of a medication including possible suicidal tendencies, headaches, and weight gain, and even explain that prescription pills are the 4th leading cause of death in Canada and the USA according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), many folks will still look at me as though I am an alien. It doesn’t seem to make sense, does it, that humans should choose the path of most resistance when really life could be so simple, pain-free, and prosperous? How do we explain this resistant behaviour?

A famous psychologist by the name of Dr. Abraham Maslow coined a term called The Jonah Complex. It states that humans fear their greatest potential; they fail to achieve a life even close to what they are capable of and settle for mediocrity. For example, they could fear good health just like they could fear becoming a successful entrepreneur just as they could fear community with loving ETs. Author Marianne Williamson writes: “Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.”

You might say to me next, “Well, Dr. Lana, that’s stupid, why do humans fear their greatest potential?” The answer is: “It’s convenient to stay small. Staying small has the feel of a safety blanket, it’s cozy. When you are small you avoid taking personal responsibility. My amazing media team for The Resonance asked several political representatives from The Greater Toronto Area to come to the film premiere, and while their offices politely emailed back saying they had a conflict of interest and regretfully couldn’t attend, a person has to wonder: For a politician to show up at The Resonance premiere would mean that he/she could no longer play small by avoiding the ET topic and would now need to take public responsibility for doing something about off world civilizations engaging humanity. Schools don’t prepare politicians to handle that matter, yet. (As a side note, we still have a few days until the film debut so fingers crossed that an acting politician attends and even addresses the audience after watching.)

Moving along, Dr. Carl Jung, a famous Swiss Psychiatrist, taught that humans are motivated by the archetype of wholeness. Now, this sounds contradictory to Dr. Maslow’s Jonah Complex but you need to be able to hold both views in your mind. Humans are driven to become whole and they fear their greatness. That unresolved inner battle has been humanity’s Achilles’ heel and victory is called Self-Mastery. I spelled Self with a capitol “s” because I am referring to the Higher Self.

In The Resonance you will hear expert speaker Sandra Kyrzakos talk about the need for humans to connect to their Higher Self so as to evolve into the 5th dimension human, a dimension of Unity Consciousness where humans have claimed their galactic status and are participating with ETs. Fear cannot be sustained in this higher realm. The healing work must be done here and now.

During the healing process, it can get worse before it gets better and that’s because the body and mind need to purge the buildup of poisons and toxins. For example, Dr. Sabina DeVita explains in my first documentary, The Wellness Story, that fluoride (from sources such as tap water) acts to calcify the pineal gland, also referred to as the seat of the soul by French Philosopher Rene Descartes and third eye in Hinduism. This gland is responsible for our connection to our intuition and clairvoyance. How can humans connect to their inner being and beyond when a major part of their brain is hijacked by chemicals? Humans need to start detoxifying and educate themselves on ingredients in topical and ingestible products. Globally, we may see more creative, albeit immature, efforts by the forces of suppression as they scramble to maintain their domination lifestyle. My advice for the general population wanting to mature into the fifth dimension, develop their consciousness, and expand their human potential is the following: Eat a plant based diet, exercise, train your brain to think properly, regulate your emotions (diffuse emotionally charged events and return to zero point), meditate to open up your internal energy channels so as to connect with advanced intelligences, and open up a decent book on developing your Higher Human Perceptional System. That’s a good start for healthy ET contact. Oh, and Sandra Kyrzakos would add, “act compassionately.”

Excuse me now, ETs are calling me about a third documentary I need to set in motion. Being of service is ongoing. How will you choose to serve humanity?

Saturday, November 21st, you can join us at the JJR MACLEOD AUDITORIUM, University of Toronto Campus, 1 King’s College Circle, Toronto, ON Canada where the premiere screening will be taking place followed by of a live Q & A with the incredible speakers in the film.

WHAT?! Marineland Is Officially Exempt From Canada’s Ban On Whale & Dolphin Captivity

Published

on

Image: 123RF

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Canada recently passed a bill that bans the capture and captivity of whales and dolphins. Marineland, a huge whale/dolphin entertainment park, has been exempted from the law that makes it illegal to do so.

  • Reflect On:

    What gives human beings the right to hold such majestic, innocent, benevolent and intelligent animals captive? What gives them the right to separate them from their families? Why do we treat other beings on Earth the way we do?

Animal captivity is extremely cruel and heartbreaking. Imagine what another intelligent, benevolent race would think if they came across our planet and observed what we do. My guess is that they’d be terrified to attempt to interact with us simply based on how we treat other sentient, benevolent beings on this planet.

Canada recently passed a legislation that completely bans keeping whales, dolphins and porpoises in captivity for entertainment, trade, possession, capture and breeding. The bill (S-203) is also known as the “Ending the Captivity of Whales and Dolphins Act,” and it was approved by the House of Commons after they voted in favour of the bill, which was first introduced in 2015.

The only time capture is permitted in Canada is for rescue purposes or, unfortunately, for scientific purposes.

According to Green Party Leader MP Elizabeth May, “Canadians have been clear, they want the cruel practice of keeping whales and dolphins in captivity to end… With the passage of Bill S-203, we have ensured that this will happen.”

More than 20 marine scientists and stakeholder organizations endorsed the bill, which quite frankly should have happened long ago. These beings, or any beings for that matter, do not belong in tanks where they are constantly suffering. These are extremely emotional, social, empathetic and brilliant beings. What we’ve done to them and continue to do to them is beyond horrid, to be blunt.

This bill was supposed to phase out this type of captivity in Canada, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, as Marineland Canada’s whales will remain at the park following the page of S-203. Already captive whales will remain in captivity, which means approximately 60 animals will live out their entire lives at Marineland and at the Vancouver Aquarium.

Canadian law now states that it’s a criminal offence, as it should be, to keep a cetacean in captivity, but it looks like Marineland Canada has been exempted from this. It does not seem, however, that they can bring more animals into the park, but they’ll more than likely begin breeding programs to keep their business going for as long as they can.

According to Marie Holer, a representative from Marineland Canada:

We’ve been working to evolve Marineland for over a year and have made many positive changes to the park, including the new educational presentation on marine mammals, the introduction of the Marineland Express and our Polar Splash pad that will open in July. Since opening day, we’ve seen our largest crowds in years and are thrilled that so many people support us in our work. We’re looking forward to enhancing our education, conservation and research focus in the short term to highlight our commitment to marine mammals.”

Is this truly a good step? As long as these animals are in captivity, there can be no care given to these animals. Why do we as human beings feel we can imprison animals like this is simply for entertainment? It feels heartbreaking, confusing, and makes deeply question the state of our connection to wildlife.

Have we really become that disconnected from life?

It’s not all bleak though! Things are obviously improving, and that’s become quite evident thanks to the vast amount of activism over the years that has finally resulted in the passing of the legislation mentioned in this article, but we still have a long way to go.

Remember, these animals have never really shown any type of aggression towards humans, except in captivity.

The Takeaway

Why do human beings go to the circus? Why do they go to places like Marineland? Is it because human beings are terrible? No. It’s simply because many of us have been desensitized and have not quite questioned this in many ways. Which is OK! That’s part of the process. When it comes to animal captivity, mass marketing and scientific justifications have allowed our minds to be manipulated. They’ve made us think that animal captivity is okay, when clearly we would not like to be confined against our will, so why do it to others?

I believe that we’re all born as extremely understanding beings, and that humans are a very empathetic race. I believe that our feelings and our ability to experience empathy are what makes us special. I also believe that these traits and characteristics left us for a while, but they are now returning and we are beginning to “think” from our hearts again.

This is why awareness regarding animal captivity has increased and will continue to increase around the globe until it is completely banned everywhere, or until people simply stop showing up to these places and providing them with profits.

Video: The Most Significant Leak About Extraterrestrial Craft Just Went Public

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A recently leaked document has exposed notes taken by legendary scientist Dr. Eric Davis during a meeting he had Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson, who was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, regarding extraterrestrial space craft.

  • Reflect On:

    UFOs used to be a conspiracy, now they are quite mainstream and their existence is backed by tremendous amounts of evidence. The next question is, where are they from, and who made them? Will this information be suppressed too?

A quote I love to use in many of my articles comes from Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell. He said, “yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered.” (source)

The thought that governments and/or rogue agencies around the world have been involved in taking down and even possibly revere engineering possible extraterrestrial craft is nothing new. Available to the public are statements from the highest ranking positions within government and the military, and there are also declassified documents that hint toward the same idea.

For example, former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer once told the public that the protocol with regards to UFOs was to “shoot first and ask questions after.” 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 that the Royal Air Force was desperate to capture one of these UFOs and reverse engineer it. You can see those and read more about it here.

Most Significant Leak?

Check out our video segment on this new leak, or read more below.

More recently, what some are calling the most significant leak in UFO history has been made public – and it may be one of the strongest documents linking UFOs to extraterrestrials.

The document goes into detail about a meeting that was had between Dr. Eric Davis, and Vice Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson. Who is Eric Davis? He is a very well known scientist, and quite the legend. For many years he was a member of the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (NIDS)(Owned by Robert Bigelow), the Chief Science Officer of EarthTech Int’l, Inc. and the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin in Austin, Texas; and he is the Owner/Chief Executive/Chief Scientist of Warp Drive Metrics who consults and contracts for the Department of Defense. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Early Universe, Cosmology and Strings Group at the Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics & Engineering Research at Baylor University in Waco, TX.

Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from July 1999 to July 2002, prior to that he was the Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The document is in the form of notes that were written by Davis after their meeting that took place in 2002, regarding a series of events that took place during the spring of 1997, when Wilson was Deputy Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Since the leak of this document, there has been no denial publicly by Davis regarding the authenticity of these documents, and the focal point of the document is about a meeting (and what happened after that meeting) that took place in 1997 between UFO researcher Dr. Steven Greer, Admiral Wilson, Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14 astronaut) and other high ranking individuals within the military. This meeting was spoken about by Dr. Greer and Dr. Mitchell nearly four years prior to the leak of these documents, so it’s all very interesting. In the episode, we actually play footage of Mitchell confirming and talking about this meeting as well as Greer.

The documents point towards a program that involves the crash retrieval of extraterrestrial craft, that are “not made of this earth, not made by man.”

You can view the entire document here.

if you missed the video embed above of myself and Joe Martino having a discussion about these documents in detail, you can watch it here.

The Takeaway

“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations.” – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

The fact that we are not alone has huge implications from science to technology, to history and possible metaphysical/spiritual implications as well. It really opens up Pandora’s Box, and it is one out of many examples that are allowing us to see how humanity has been conditioned to think a certain way, limit our reality, despite all of the evidence, that conflicts with long held belief systems.

At the end of the day, the idea that there are other highly advanced, intelligent lifeforms in the universe, or multiverse, and possibly other dimensions that are and have been visiting our planet, and others, for a very long time is most likely just the very tip of the ice-berg.

This is not a new discovery. We have had this type of knowledge of UFOs and ETs for a very long time, culture and elites have simply suppressed this knowing.

British Home Secretary Has Signed Extradition Order To Send Julian Assange To US

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    British home secretary Sajid Javid has signed the extradition order to send Julian Assange to the US. This now leaves the final decision to the courts. It's likely that the extradition decision process will take many months to decide in court.

  • Reflect On:

    Is this another step in harming the freedom of press? The freedom of revealing truth to citizens? Is this government overreach whereby they feel it's OK to pretend to the public that their knowledge of truth is not important?

The British home secretary, Sajid Javid, has just signed a request for Julian Assange to be extradited to the US where he faces an 18-count indictment, issued by the US Department of Justice, for charges linked to computer hacking and revealing government secrets in collaboration with Chelsea Manning, formerly Bradley Manning. The charges all fall under the Espionage Act.

“He’s rightly behind bars. There’s an extradition request from the US that is before the courts tomorrow but yesterday I signed the extradition order and certified it and that will be going in front of the courts tomorrow.” – Sayid Javid

Officially, Assange is accused of soliciting and publishing classified information and conspiring to hack into a government computer. “It is a decision ultimately for the courts, but there is a very important part of it for the home secretary and I want to see justice done at all times and we’ve got a legitimate extradition request, so I’ve signed it, but the final decision is now with the courts,” said Javid.

If you were to look entirely at the law, you might say “yes, technically if he did these things, there is a case to be made.” However, was Assange involved enough in this process to prosecute him? Did he do something that was a disservice to the people? Or did he do something that was a disservice to the powerful elite?

That is something for you to decide, ideally without the manipulative rhetoric from the powerful elite and the mainstream media they own. Attempts to suggest he threatens the patriotism of the US and the national security of the US might be something to observe as a clear sign of bait and switch: get upset at this, instead of looking at what he revealed about the powerful elite in the totality of the leaks he has put out.

Swedish courts had just recently rejected an extradition request for Assange to be sent back to Sweden for an alleged rape case dating back to 2010. Assange denies the accusation and has since the beginning. The decision out of Upsalla to deny his request was fueled by the claim that Assange did not need to be detained.

Assange is currently in jail for 50 weeks for skipping bail after he spent seven years in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He was recently too ill to appear at a hearing at Westminster magistrates court in relation to the US request. The hearing has been rescheduled for Friday, June 14th, 2019.

Thomas Garner, an extradition lawyer at Gherson Solicitors, said Javid’s certification of the request was “an important though merely procedural step” to start the extradition process.

“I would expect the court to set a preliminary timetable for the extradition process tomorrow,” he said. “It is likely to be many months before any hearing at the magistrates court and of course either side may then seek to appeal that decision in due course. Despite this, the Swedish authorities will be monitoring the process carefully as the further down the line the US proceedings get the harder it might become for the home secretary to give precedence to any competing request.”

The Takeaway

From a systematic standpoint, this is a necessary procedural step in extraditing Assange to the US and it has been granted. It could have been blocked but Javid felt it was necessary for ‘justice to be served.’

As we can see, this is an example of a spot where someone could have stood up and said “no I don’t support this given what it does to protect the powerful elite and given what it does to journalism and the maintenance of secrecy.” Obviously, Javid would have faced much criticism if he had stood up, perhaps legal problems too, we were not able to confirm that, but we are seeing a system play entirely along with the power elite in this case.

In the video below, there is an important discussion on some of the ‘Qanon’ ideas in relation to Assange. My analysis on that is that it appears to be heavily misguided, but you decide for yourself.
