On Monday news broke that President Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn, had resigned. The information raised many eyebrows, especially given the exposure of corruption within the political system as of late.

In no time, many theories about why this happened began to hit the media. Are we getting the whole story and is there a bigger picture to look at? Let’s explore.

Flynn’s resignation came following weeks of speculation about his ties to Russia. Days of reporting went live about the specifics of his calls with Sergey Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, in which the pair discussed U.S. foreign policy toward Russia. This action violates federal law which led to a heap of controversy as to whether or not the president could support his pick.

News reports then revealed that the White House had been warned last month by the then acting attorney general Sally Yates — prior to her being fired for advising justice department lawyers that the travel ban was “not lawful” — that Flynn could be subject to blackmail.

“I have sincerely apologized to the president and the vice president, and they have accepted my apology,” Flynn explained in his resignation letter.

Enter WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks stepped in on Tuesday regarding the political events, blaming a “destabilization campaign” by the media and Democrats for Flynn’s resignation.

The organization tweeted:

When a Washington Post op-ed exposed the Flynn–Kislyak call in mid-January, Pence was quick to defend Flynn, denying any wrongdoing.

Flynn reportedly discussed sanctions former President Barack Obama inflicted on Russian operatives following the revelation by the U.S. intelligence community that the Kremlin ordered cyberattacks and leaks meant to hurt Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Flynn reportedly advised Russia to hold off until Trump took office, when he would have the opportunity to retract the sanctions.

WikiLeaks role in the presidential campaign meant the release of various emails that were apparently stolen from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. The organization was criticized for being one-sided in its leaks, as no detrimental information regarding Trump came forward. However, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claimed the organization simply didn’t have proper leaks to provide as of yet.

WikiLeaks also denied getting hacked emails from Moscow, despite the intelligence community believing that Russia was the main source of the DNC and Podesta hacks, and Kremlin was interfering with the campaign to ensure a Trump win. On this accusation WikiLeaks stated the main goal of the organization is transparency.

Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of the foreign affairs committee at the upper chamber of the Russian parliament, noted that firing Flynn for his contacts with Russia is “not just paranoia but something even worse.”

“Either Trump hasn’t found the necessary independence and he’s been driven into a corner… or Russophobia has permeated the new administration from top to bottom,” Kosachev said.

A “destabilization campaign” by the media and Democrats for Flynn’s resignation makes sense. U.S. intelligence agencies zeroed in on Flynn’s communication with Kislyak right after Russia agreed not to retaliate for Obama’s sanctions.

Furthermore, the list of the events, exposed by the Post, the New York Times, and other outlets, all came from anonymous sources within the U.S. government.

So what is the real story?

The Bigger Picture

We’re seeing once again where our current ways lead us. A world so invested in political culture and ‘sides’ leads to ultimate disorganization, battling, corruption and fear. All things that don’t lead to a peace driven and thriving society. These actions are happening to challenge us to think differently.

So what do we do NOW as we have to work our way out of this politically driven way of seeing the world? It all comes down to the conversation we create and our world views. We can speculate all day, create media built around multiple sides and political agendas to further confuse and divide people, or we can look beyond that and simply ask ourselves what we can do instead. What our world could look like if we didn’t play into these dramas and instead projected a world we wanted to see.

But this is easy to say and harder to do. So what would that look like? How can we dream beyond our current ways and actually organize around these ideas? How can we strip out political identification and come together to go after what world we want to live in?

We don’t have all the answers, but these are the thoughts we must begin to go after and converse around vs. simply speculating on who hates who and who’s doing what over and over again while not even thinking about what’s possible.

We must begin to have conversation in a new direction and end the old rhetoric. So think outside the box. What can our world really look like and how can we make that happen? We have so many brilliant and creative people who can help form these movements but we stop dead in our tracks when we step back into our current world views and meaningless rhetoric. The to shift consciousness on the matter.

What does your world look like?

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?
