The Presidential Reality Show & The Illusion Of Choice: Is 2016 The Year Everybody Realizes Elections Are Rigged?

Published

Distracting the Public

The current U.S. ‘Presidential Reality Show’ playing out throughout the mainstream media with almost 24/7 coverage is nothing more than a distraction. It provides  entertainment and the ‘illusion of choice’ in what has become hypocrisy and the corruption of the democratic process. While some people may be pinning their hopes on Donald Trump to clean up the mess that previous administrations have created, it is worth noting that Obama was also touted as a saviour. Obama offered hope, integrity, and the promise of real change for the U.S. Under Obama’s administration he carried out over 1,063 documented examples, of lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy, and waste. Some of these included: military intervention in Libya without Congressional approval, giving a no-bid contract to Halliburton cronies (just like Bush did), creating an administration full of lobbyists (after promising he wouldn’t have any), breaking his promise to close Guantanamo Bay, supporting the $700 billion TARP corporate-welfare bailout just like Bush, and supporting Bush’s unconstitutional Patriot Act, to name just a few.

While the masses enjoy the political circus created by the media, corporations are revelling in the hoopla and going about their business of seducing observers into a media induced coma, thus blindsiding citizens to the real issues of the day. While Donald Trump may appear to be upsetting the status quo, it will be hard for any serious change to occur as long as the concentration of power is controlled by the elite. Let’s not forget Donald is part of that elite, having been born with a silver spoon in his mouth, despite his claims he was a self-made man. As control concentrates with these ruling oligopolies, the message of community, society, political discussion, civic values, and any organized dissent is marginalized.

Propaganda, Omission, and Corporate Interests

“As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: You liberate a city by destroying it. Words are used to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.”

– Gore Vidal

While the distraction of the masses occurs at one end of the spectrum, at the other end propaganda continues to bamboozle the unsuspecting citizenry.  Apart from the inability to disseminate large volumes of information, the main difficulty in distinguishing propaganda from other types of biases is in its subjectivity. For one party the information communicated may be seen as educational, yet for the other party it may be seen as propaganda. Propaganda is about presenting facts and information selectively so that the message elicits an emotional response.

It is important for the news media to be seen as advertiser-friendly. Any negative news slant, especially in regard to the economy, environment, or foreign policy, may upset potential advertisers and limit revenue streams. Mass killings, terrorism, race hate, and police violence, on the other hand, are welcomed by the mainstream press. These keep people in an endless state of fear, and ensure they keep consuming news. So we see soft stories and sensationalism serving as a means of attracting readers and viewers, while more subtle and meaningful stories are avoided for risk of scaring away potential advertisers. Business interests and potential advertisers such as industrial agriculture and the automotive, pharmaceutical, and travel industries are therefore protected from potential bad news stories that may spook or upset advertisers.

Economic Propaganda

“People who own the society, the merchants and manufacturers, they are the architects of government policy and they design it in their own interest of course no matter how grievous the effect is on others. The point of corporate propaganda and the educational system is to instill these beliefs and it works pretty well.”

– Adam Smith

While the U.S. government, with the help of the mainstream (corporate) media, is reporting that the American economy is in good shape, other non-mainstream analysts suggest otherwise. John Williams, an economic consultant who runs the website Shadow Statistics, examines the data many mainstream media outlets fail to update or question. Take the ‘official unemployment’ rate in the United States, as outlined by Unemployment USA. It is promoted to the public at around 4.9%, yet Williams argues that “the numbers are a matter of definition. If you interviewed those who are unemployed you would get a much higher rate than what the government puts out as its definition.” (2)  

Williams points out that back in 1994 discouraged workers were counted. If you hadn’t looked for work in the last two years but you were still ready and able to take a job the government counted you. It doesn’t now. Williams estimates that if the calculation was the same or similar to what it was back in 1994, the unemployment rate would be more in line with 23%.

Divide and Conquer

“After you’ve had somebody say to you for the thousandth time, ‘How come we never hear about these issues in the media,’ you start to realize that the media itself is an issue.”

– Svend Robinson

Instead of informative and intelligent conversation, the mainstream news media have become an agenda-driven mouthpiece for creating isolation, separation, and obedience. One of the primary reasons the elite have garnered dominance is their commitment to psychological operations that divide-and-conquer the public. As David DeGraw from Dissident Voice puts it:

In manufactured public opinion, Obama represented a far left swing in US politics, and Bush represented a far right swing, and these two supposed polar opposites also had a Congress overwhelmingly run by members of their own party. Did we get drastically different policies? In what matters most, in both cases, the results were the same: more money and power for the Economic Elite and the continued decline of the US middle class. This fact is now undeniable.

Yes, there are definite differences in their rhetoric and on some social issues, but this is the key to the psychological operations, to the divide-and-conquer strategy that they use so effectively. (3)

While the rhetoric on issues such as religion, gay marriage, abortion, race, terrorism, immigration, and gender play out, other fundamental issues such as social inequality, environmental degradation, and systemic political and corporate corruption, as well as the invasion of foreign countries to secure resources, go largely unchallenged.

So How to Avoid Being Manipulated?

Noam Chomsky sums it up nicely in this quote,

“I try to encourage people to think for themselves, to question standard assumptions… Don’t take assumptions for granted. Begin by taking a sceptical attitude toward anything that is conventional wisdom. Make it justify itself. It usually can’t. Be willing to ask questions about what is taken for granted. Try to think things through for yourself.”

The Man Who “Hacked” NASA & The AFSPC Gives A New Interview Describing What He Found

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Nearly two decades ago, Gary Mckinnon of the UK accesses nearly 100 NASA and Department of Defence, including the US Air Force Space command. He faced extradition for 10 years after finding a picture of a UFO and a list of "non terrestrial officers."

  • Reflect On:

    How sheltered are we from certain information? Has 'national security' simply become an excuse to keep information concealed from the public to protect corporate and government interests?

The field of UFOlogy has long been muddled with disinformation campaigns and bad journalism, and sometimes this journalism includes infiltration efforts by intelligence agencies themselves. This is clear given the fact that intelligence agencies have a direct relationship with journalists and mainstream media outlets, as there are declassified documents showing so. Operation mockingbird is a great example, not to mention all of the mainstream media journalists who have come out and said that mainstream media is directly influenced by intelligence agencies, governments and corporations. You can find some of these documents and see examples of these whistleblowers in two previous articles I’ve published that go into more detail here, and here. When it comes to UFOs, we know that they’re real, but we also know that along with that reality there has been “an official campaign of ridicule and secrecy.” (Ex-CIA Director Roscoe Hillenkoetter) Perhaps this ridicule campaign carries on today through some rather ghastly, unbelievable claims, but let’s not let that mask the fact that this phenomenon is indeed real, and there are a plethora of credible sources including documents, data, physical evidence, and more suggesting we’re not alone, and that we probably are being visited and have been visited by intelligent extraterrestrial beings from other worlds and possibly other dimensions.

A lot of this evidence has come from UFOlogist Richard Dolan, who has always been a key resource for me with regards to accessing credible information about the UFO phenomenon. I find that it’s important to seek out proper researchers who share information in a credible and verifiable way, especially about a subject that can so easily be ridiculed when you are trying to reach the masses who don’t have much knowledge about it, but are genuinely curious. I also feel that my generation of UFO researchers lack proper research and investigative skills, are easily influenced and swayed, and in the age of social media are simply trying to share whatever they can, no matter how credible, to simply ‘stay relevant,’ instead of doing it for the love and genuine desire to share important, truthful information.

Like I said, there are some rather ‘outside the box claims’ out there that have absolutely no credibility behind them, and to share those actually does more disservice to the movement, in my opinion. On the other hand, there are some very outside the box claims and information that do indeed have tremendous amounts of credibility behind them, and these are the ones we should be paying attention to.

One example comes from the case of Garry McKinnon, who for 10 years was in great danger of extradition to the United States for accessing nearly 100 NASA and military computers including the United States Space Command. This was the real deal, and HERE is a clip of Obama and the UK Prime Minister at the time fielding a question about Garry, this breach made headlines new.

Gary was able to access these computers in real time and view files on them. He found some startling pictures, one in particular was of a large cylindrical shaped UFO hovering in space, in addition to a strange spreadsheet document with a list of “non-terrestrial officers,” presumably belonging to a publicly unacknowledged branch of the United States military operating in space, as well as “fleet to fleet” transfers of materials, whatever that means.

I’ll let you listen to the interview below for more details straight from Garry McKinnon’s mouth, via Dolan’s Youtube Channel, where he also describes a high-resolution photograph, taken from space, of a smooth, cigar-shaped craft.

The Real Secret Space Program

Is there a secret space program, and have clandestine groups been reverse engineering ET technology?

Dr. David Clarke is an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in England. He was also the curator for The National Archives UFO project from 2008–2013, and regularly comments in national and international media on UFOs.

These documents reveal how the RAF expressed great interest in finding UFOs.

Dr. Clarke told The Daily Mail,

Even though they have been partly censored they can’t conceal the fact the UK military were interested in capturing UFO technology or what they coyly refer to as ‘novel weapon technology’… And the files reveal they were desperate to capture this technology – wherever it came from – before the Russians or the Chinese got hold of it first…. Although this was 1997, Russia was still regarded as an undefeated enemy with a weapons programme regarded as a threat to the West.

The question is: Did they get one? More on that later…

The military personnel who are encountering these phenomena tell remarkable stories. In one example, over the course of two weeks in November 2004, the USS Princeton, a guided-missile cruiser operating advanced naval radar, repeatedly detected unidentified aircraft operating in and around the Nimitz carrier battle group, which it was guarding off the coast of San Diego. In some cases, according to incident reports and interviews with military personnel, these vehicles descended from altitudes higher than 60,000 feet at supersonic speeds, only to suddenly stop and hover as low as 50 feet above the ocean. – Christopher Mellon, former Assistant Secretary of Defence

We don’t know the answer to these questions, but we do know that the United States has a history of government agencies existing in secrecy for years. The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, and its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained a secret for 30 years.

We are talking about Special Access Programs (SAP). From these we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘deep black programs.’ A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.”  (source)

We also know that there is a black budget to fund these programs.

HERE is another great discussion with Dolan titled “Secret Space Program, Real Evidence.”

Are These Objects Extraterrestrial?

There are literally hundreds of people with extensive academic, political and military backgrounds, all the way to astronauts, who have been blowing the whistle for a very long time.  Many scientific publications have also been made throughout the years describing strange and radar confirmed military sightings by military pilots. You can see some evidence and documentation from this article I wrote regarding the Chilean Air Force.

According to Herman Oberth, one of the founding fathers of rocketry and astronautics, “flying saucers are real and . . . they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.” (Oberth, Hermann: “Flying Saucers Come from a Distant World,” The American Weekly, October 24, 1954)  (source 1)(source 2)

“”We have, indeed, been contacted — perhaps even visited — by extraterrestrial beings, and the US government, in collusion with the other national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public.”

Victor Marchetti (Second Look, Volume 1, No 7, Washington, DC, May, 1979)

Another great quote:

“There are objects in our atmosphere which are technically miles in advance of anything we can deploy… we have no means of stopping them from coming here… 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… This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not the subject of ‘rubbishing’ by tabloid newspapers.”

– Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

The point is, if you believe some of these objects are indeed extraterrestrial, you are not alone. Couple these statements with the claims of thousands of individuals who have had contactee and abduction experiences who’ve shared remarkably consistent stories, it’s definitely a plausible hypothesis for the UFO phenomenon.

The Takeaway

What are the implications of extraterrestrial contact? Humanity will always go through paradigm shifting realizations that will jolt human consciousness. Right now, we have a lot of work to do here on Earth, and we should be focusing on cleaning up our planet and ridding it of greed, destruction, war, etc. I feel that the ET reality is somehow connected to that realization, and the need and urgency that many of us feel regarding the planet and service to others.

Wikileaks Document Reveals a “Secret US Base on the Moon” (VIDEO)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A document published by Wikileaks clearly implies that the United States had a "secret" base on the Moon that was destroyed by Russia. It's one of many interesting documents that suggest strange things are and have been happening on the Moon.

  • Reflect On:

    Is our world really as it's been presented? There are millions of pages of documents that are classified by multiple countries every single year, how is it possible to really determine what's going on behind the scenes? Why does secrecy rule?

A US government document that was released by WikiLeaks reveals the US had a base on the moon that the Soviets allegedly destroyed. Myself and CE founder Joe Martino explore not only the document but the overwhelming evidence that supports the idea that the US indeed had a base on the Moon and probably still does. We also explore the idea that we may not be the only ones up there. All documents and evidence of what we spoke about are linked in this detailed article for those who enjoy reading and want to access the documents that we reference in the video below.  To see the specific Wikileaks document we are discussing, you can click here.

The idea that something strange may be happening on the Moon is not far fetched at all. In fact, given all of the information that’s now available within the public domain on the subject, it’s hard to see how it’s not a fact. Again, we go into a lot of that information in the episode below.

The episode goes into detail and looks at multiple documents found within the CIA’s electronic reading room about bases on the moon as well, plans for building bases on the moon, and studies also showing there are existing structures on the dark side of the moon that may have been built by ‘someone else.’

Russian Space Probe Captures Images of a UFO & Then Disappears Forever

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Soviet Air Force Colonel & Cosmonaut Marina Popovic (pictured above) was one of multiple to express that something extraterrestrial may have happened to the soviet 'space probe' designed to explore the moons of mars after communication was lost.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on the fact that there is so much evidence showing we are not alone--it's overwhelming--yet, to a certain extent, society still ignores the biggest story in human history.

What’s really going on in space? What have ‘the global elite’ tried to do in space? The truth is many people are starting to realize that we live in a very sheltered world, inside a bubble that people are now trying to desperately pop. We’ve been fed a lot of disinformation about discoveries that would change the way we view the very nature of our reality and what it means to be human. Discoveries that would have us ask the deep questions about life, our purpose, why we are here, and where we come from. Discoveries that would literally change human consciousness forever.

We knew that the Earth was flat, we knew that we were the center of the universe, and we knew that a man-made heavier than air piece of machinery could not take flight. Through all stages of human history, intellectual authorities have pronounced their supremacy by ridiculing or suppressing elements of reality that simply didn’t fit within the framework of accepted knowledge. Are we really any different today? Have we really changed our acceptance towards things that won’g fit the frame? Maybe there are concepts of our reality we have yet to understand, and if we open our eyes, maybe we will see that something significant has been overlooked. – Terje Toftenes (source)

This ‘something’ significant is the fact that we are not alone.  Whether it be a former Chairman of the Royal Navy telling us that “there is a serious possibility that we are being visited, and have been visited by people from outer space,” or an Apollo 14 astronaut saying that “there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered,” we have no shortage of high-ranking insiders attesting to the reality that some UFOs may be extraterrestrial. There have been some very interesting leaks over the years that suggest the same thing.

General Carlos Cavero told the world in 1979, “everything” has been “in a process of investigation both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world.” On a global scale, “the nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon” and there is “an international exchange of data.” (source)

Phobos

Phobos II was the last space probe designed by the Soviet Union to explore the moons of Mars. Unexpectedly, we lost communication with it, and multiple insiders have said we weren’t told the truth about what really happened. In a new segment of the CE showa platform we created to combat the demonetization and censorship we are experiencing as a result of presenting the information we present, founder Joe Martino and I go deeper into the Phobos topic, which you can watch below.

A Bit More About UFOs

Today, UFOs are no longer taboo. For years, we’ve experienced, as I’ve said many times before, an “official campaign of ridicule and secrecy” (Ex-CIA Director Roscoe Hillenkoetter) of the phenomenon. The establishment in many ways was responsible for the foolish articles that would constantly appear in mainstream media publications, absolutely ridiculing a topic that is actually very real.

But the tables have now turned. One of the biggest mouthpieces for “the establishment,”  The New York Times, admitted something that the establishment, or facets of it, have been concealing for years: UFOs are real. A former high-ranking federal government employee, Christopher Mellon, also wrote a Washington post article that detailed a number of UFO encounters with the military with extreme credibility. But again, this isn’t new information. In the 1950s, President Harry Truman went on national television announcing to the world that UFOs are real, and that they discuss the topic at every conference that they have with the military, that “there’s always things like that going on, flying saucers and they’ve had other things.” (source)

Official pictures and videos have also been released, for example, a photo taken by two Royal Canadian Air Force pilots on August 27th, 1956 in McCleod, Alberta, Canada is a great example. (“Physical Evidence Related To UFO Reports” – The Sturrock Panel Report – Electromagnetic Effects) (source) (source) You can see that picture here.

In this case, the pilots were flying in a formation of four F86 Sabre jet aircraft. One of the pilots described the phenomenon as a “bright light which was sharply defined as disk-shaped” that looked like “a shiny silver dollar sitting horizontal.” Another pilot managed to photograph the object, as you can see above.

The US Navy has acknowledged footage showing multiple UFOs that was released a couple of years ago by To The Stars Academy via The Pentagon, and they’ve recently confirmed that the videos are indeed real.

A Word About ‘Mainstream’ UFO Disclosure

There are millions of pages of documents to go through, and thousands of statements from high ranking people that have been attesting to the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon for a very long time. That being said, the topic is going ‘mainstream’ and it’s always important to note that the establishment, and media outlets like the New York Times, CNN etc have been intelligence agency mouthpieces. They have fed the world a lot of disinformation and the type of controlled disclosure we are seeing on this subject is probably no different.

There is much more going on than what we get from the mainstream–they always try to control the narrative for their own selfish purposes. It’s always important to keep that in mind for anybody who delves deep into this subject. Are they trying to control the narrative and spread more disinformation? Are they trying to present a threat narrative in order to justify certain measures? Similar to how ‘terrorism’ was used and financed by the west to justify the infiltration and takeover of other countries in order to bring them ‘democracy?’

These are important questions to ask ourselves as this topic gains more popularity. What is presented by the mainstream is far from the available truth that’s already out there.
