Green Party nominee Dr. Jill Stein was excluded from the third and final presidential debate as a result of the two-party system. She was not prepared to simply roll over and accept a loss, however.

Stein took to Facebook Live and Twitter last Wednesday night to share her thoughts on the matter.

More than 932,000 people viewed her broadcast in support of her alternative viewpoint, with it even being shared over 19,700 times by the time Thursday afternoon hit.

“Thank you so much for tuning in to the real debate,” the Green Party candidate announced on Facebook as she began her live broadcast, contrasting it to what she called the “sham debate” between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump that took place at the University of Nevada.

“We are very excited to be able to present to you real answers to the questions after Hillary and Donald continue to duck those questions and mostly hurl mud at each other.”

Stein has always been vocal about her opinions on the two-party system. In an interview back in July, she said, “the two-party system is the worst-case scenario. In my view, the worst horror of all is a political system that tells us we have to choose between two lethal options, and that’s what we have to fight and we shouldn’t be manipulated into thinking it’s one or the other of these villains out there, one or the other evil.”

Rules set by the Commission on Presidential Debates, a nonprofit corporation established by the Democratic and Republican parties that has been paving the way for debates since 1988, have made it possible to keep third-party candidates like Stein and Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party out of debates. Current rules call for a third-party nominee to acquire a poll at 15% or higher in an average of five major national election polls.

Many, including Stein, believe this system limits voters’ options.

America is currently the only major developed country to remain limited to two parties. This makes it laughably easy for big corporations to buy out political parties. The fear seems to be that more voices would lead to more complex debates, as well as diversity and options to choose from.

“Forget the lesser evil,” argued Stein. “Stand up and fight for the greater good like our lives depend on it – because they do.”

Stein, along with many others, believes the system is broken and hinders voters from hearing from and considering all of their options, effectively locking out the diversity of voices and views that make America the powerhouse it is today. And a poll published last month by Suffolk University and USA TODAY revealed that an astonishing 76% of American voters would prefer to have more presidential candidates on stage for the debates.

Stein used her Facebook Live stream last Wednesday to host her own debate, answering all of the major questions Clinton and Trump were asked in Nevada. She went on to share her feelings on the two-party system, calling the election a choice between two criminals. Stein said if she were to become president, she would hire Supreme Court justices who would actually “stand up for labor rights, who continue to protect LGBTQ rights, who support immigrant rights, who support women’s rights, especially women’s reproductive rights, and Indigenous Americans’ rights.” She said these justices would “stand up for the rights of people and to understand that corporations are not people” by rivaling Citizens United along with other decisions that have formed “false equivalence between money and speech.”

Stein also shared her stance on things like gun control, calling for background checks and revised gun show rules. She also announced the need to end gun manufacturers’ immunity from prosecution.

Stein also claimed Clinton won’t do enough to improve women’s access to reproductive health care and abortion, and said if she were appointed, she would broaden abortion availability and oppose the Hyde Amendment. She also discussed health care, calling for universal, single-payer health care that would take place through an expanded Medicare program accessible to all U.S. residents.

Regarding Trump’s desire to build a wall as a border from Mexico, Stein said the focus should instead be on extensive reform to U.S. foreign policy. “We don’t need that wall. In fact, we need to stop invading other countries so that we’re not forcing migration of refugees. And in fact, the most important thing we can do to end the immigration crisis is to stop causing it in the first place.”

Stein wrapped up her debate by discussing the national debt, sharing her plans for rebuilding the U.S. economy. She proposed that the United States could both reduce its debt and boost its economic prosperity by halting support for expensive foreign wars, cutting back on tax cuts offered to large corporations and the rich, and ending Wall Street nonintervention:

These wars for oil are not making us safer; they’re making us bankrupt. So we need to cut the bloated and dangerous military, which is something we can do with a weapons embargo, with a freeze on the bank accounts of our allies who are funding the terrorist forces. We can ensure that we can cut the military, enforce a true peace offensive in the Middle East, and put our dollars into true security here building up our economy.

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.
