Assad Says Syria Chemical Attack Was “Fabricated” By The U.S. & Is “Hand-In-Glove With Terrorists”

When the chemical attack occurred last week in Idlib, Syria, the Western military alliance and mainstream media immediately pointed their finger toward Assad. However, independent journalists and alternative news networks including CE questioned this, claiming that it could just be another false flag attack orchestrated by the West in order to justify military intervention for ulterior motives.

The White Helmets were immediately on the scene of the attack, an organization funded by the West that’s painted as being a group of peacekeepers who provide aid to victims, when in reality most of the help they give is to the terrorists. Meanwhile, back at the White House President Trump ordered 50 missile strikes against the Syrian military base in response.

Putin was one of the first leaders to refer to the attack as false-flag, and now, Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is claiming the same thing. He gave a statement earlier today that addressed the West’s involvement in the chemical attack.

Assad Claims Chemical Attack Was Fabricated By The West

In regards to the recent allegations that Assad’s troops were responsible for the latest massive chemical attack, Assad explained that he thought the attack was “100% fabrication.” Assad also questioned whether or not the children photographed were even dead.

Assad explains that it was “not clear whether it happened or not, because how can you verify a video? You have a lot of fake videos now.”

This was brought to light earlier this year when the Pentagon paid a PR firm over $500 million to create fake terrorists videos.

“We don’t know whether those dead children were killed in Khan Sheikhun. Were they dead at all?” he asked.

“There was no order to make any attack. We don’t have any chemical weapons, we gave up our arsenal a few years ago,” he said. “Even if we have them, we wouldn’t use them, and we have never used our chemical arsenal in our history.”

Though this may seem insensitive to some, it is a valid question given that the White Helmets were actually caught staging and filming fake rescue scenes like this (you can watch a video on this here).

“Definitely, 100% for us, it’s fabrication… Our impression is that the West, mainly the United States, is hand-in-glove with the terrorists. They fabricated the whole story in order to have a pretext for the attack,” Assad said.

You can watch the full interview below:

His statement comes shortly after his top political advisor, Bouthaina Shaaban, said that the U.S. missile strike killed the people fighting the terrorists. You can read more about that in our CE article here.

It wasn’t just the U.S. government and affiliated mainstream media outlets that were quick to blame Assad for the attack, the U.K. jumped on board as well.

British prime minister, Theresa May, explained, “We believe it is highly likely that the attack was carried out by the Assad regime… Apart from anything else, we believe it’s only the regime that has the capability to make such an attack.”

Given that the U.S. and the U.K. both have vested interests in Syria, it seems strange that they were the two countries leading this propaganda campaign regarding the chemical attack. In fact, the White Helmets are largely funded by the U.S. and the U.K., even though they claim that they receive no funding from outside parties with a vested interest in Syria, but a quick glance at the finances tells a different story.

The White Helmets’ Ties To The UK & The US

Vanessa Beeley, an independent researcher and journalist, explains that “they are in fact multi-million funded, conservatively speaking, a hundred million dollars, from the US – $23 million via USAID; UK around $65 million; France is supplying equipment.”

Beeley even speculated, “What we are seeing here is an eradication of Syrian state institutions and the implantation of a Syrian shadow state by predominantly the UK and the US, but also supported by EU governments.”

If the Western military alliance is using the White Helmets as a front to create a shadow government in Syria, that would provide even more reason for them to create this propaganda campaign surrounding the Syrian conflict and the recent chemical attack.

The White Helmets also claim to be neutral and unarmed, which is far from the truth. As Vanessa Beeley explains, “If we look at their claims to be neutral, they are embedded entirely in terrorist-held areas whether it is predominantly Al-Nusra Front or ISIS or any of the various associated brigades of terrorists that take their command very much from Al-Nusra Front, that is where White Helmets are exclusively.”

Beeley noted that the White Helmets also, “provide medical care for the terrorists, they funnel equipment in from Turkey into the terrorist areas (…) They’ve been filmed participating and facilitating an execution of a civilian in Aleppo. They post celebratory videos to their social media pages of the execution of civilian Arab soldiers.”

She continued, “from the testimony from the real Syria Civil Defense across Syria they have also been involved in the taking over of the real Syria Civil Defense units, the stealing of their equipment and the eventual massacres and kidnapping of real Syria Civil Defense crews.”

Yet somehow, the West managed to paint a beautiful picture of the White Helmets by way of a “documentary” on Netflix. The White Helmets film depicts the group as saviours (literally, the song “When The Saints Go Marching In” plays in the background), when in reality this group isn’t quite as “heroic” as the documentary and North American mainstream media paints them to be. Perhaps the only reason this group deserved to win an Oscar was for their acting skills — not their humanitarian efforts.

You can read more about the White Helmets in our CE article here:

Who Are The ‘White Helmets?’ Do We Really Know What They Are Doing In Syria?

The U.S. Sells Arms to Terrorists & Trained Them to Use Chemical Weapons

The U.S. has been funding the Syrian war for quite some time, so it’s clear that they have a vested interest. U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard actually just returned from Syria and publicly discussed the U.S.’s interests in the Syrian war (as the U.S. sells arms to ISIS and other terrorist groups), offering a compelling call to action in the process:

“I return to Washington, DC with even greater resolve to end our illegal war to overthrow the Syrian government. I call upon Congress and the new Administration to answer the pleas of the Syrian people immediately and support the Stop Arming Terrorists Act. We must stop directly and indirectly supporting terrorists—directly by providing weapons, training and logistical support to rebel groups affiliated with al-Qaeda and ISIS; and indirectly through Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, and Turkey, who, in turn, support these terrorist groups. We must end our war to overthrow the Syrian government and focus our attention on defeating al-Qaeda and ISIS.”

You can read our CE article about it here.

Michel Chossudovsky, an award-winning author, an Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Ottawa, and the Founder and Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG), explained:

“Trump’s decision to strike a Syrian airbase in retaliation for Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons against his own people confirms that the ‘False Flag’ Chemical Weapons attack scenario first formulated under Obama is still ‘on the table.’ Our analysis (including a large body of Global Research investigative reports) confirms unequivocally that Trump is lying, the Western media is lying and most of America’s allies are also lying.” (source)

Chossudovsky wrote a piece published in 2012 about how the Pentagon not only provided chemical weapons to Al Nusra, an affiliated Al Qaeda terrorist organization, but also trained the rebels in the use of these weapons. Washington has always pointed its finger at Russia and Assad, despite the fact that a United Nations independent commission confirmed that the rebels, not the government, have chemicals weapons in their possession and were using sarin nerve gas, which was used in the recent chemical attack, against the civilian population.

He explains:

“And once these Al Qaeda rebels had been supplied and trained in the use of WMDs by military contractors hired by the Pentagon,  the Syrian government would then be held responsible for using the WMD against the Syrian people.

This in turn would provide a justification for a humanitarian R2P intervention to “protect” and come to the rescue of the Syrian people.

Believe it or not: that is the justification for waging a “humanitarian war” on Syria.”

Additionally, the following Mail Online article was published in 2013 and subsequently removed. Note the contradictory discourse: “Obama issued warning to Syrian president Bashar al Assad,” “White House gave green light to chemical weapons attack.” You can read more about this here.

 goes on to explain that CNN accuses Bashar Al Assad of killing his own people while also acknowledging that the ‘rebels’ are not only in possession of chemical weapons, but that these ‘moderate terrorists’ affiliated with Al Nusra are trained in the use of chemical weapons by specialists on contract to the Pentagon.”

This isn’t necessarily anything new though, the U.S. government has been arming and training terrorists for quite some time, and this latest attack in Syria is starting to sound dangerously familiar to 9/11.

Even Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., spoke out about the Pentagon’s ties to terrorists, explaining:

“In fact, many of the ISIS fighters and their commanders are ideological and organizational successors to the Jihadists that the CIA has been nurturing for 30 years. The CIA began arming and training the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan in 1979 to fight the Soviets. Following the Soviet withdrawal, the CIA’s Afghan Mujahedeen became the Taliban while its foreign fighters, including Osama bin Laden, formed Al-Qaeda. In 2004, then British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook told the House of Commons that Al-Qaeda took its name—meaning “database” in Arabic—from the voluminous CIA database of Jihadists—Mujahedeen foreign fighters and arms smugglers trained and equipped by the CIA during the Afghan conflict.”

How the Syrian Conflict is Linked to False-Flag Terrorism 

As I said previously, it’s becoming more and more clear that the Western military alliance has an ulterior motive behind the Syrian conflict and that the chemical attack was likely an act of false-flag terrorism.

False-flag terrorism is the idea that a government would stage a terrorist attack in a country (even their own) in order to justify war and the infiltration of a foreign country for their own purposes (whether that be for money, oil, etc.). It’s also used to heighten a state of fear and security within their own country, and in order to do so, they need a villain. For example, in the case of 9/11 it was Al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.

Even Putin admitted that the chemical attack was likely false-flag, as he stated:

“We have reports from multiple sources that false flags like this one – and I cannot call it otherwise – are being prepared in other parts of Syria, including the southern suburbs of Damascus. They plan to plant some chemical there and accuse the Syrian government of an attack.

All of the misinformation being spread by the U.S., along with their close ties to terrorist groups in Syria, is starting to sound dangerously similar to 9/11. When it comes to alleged “terrorist attacks,” the sad truth is that the government (or the shadow government or the elite) is often involved. We’ve seen this occur with Al-Qaeda and its relationship with the U.S. government, as various documents have tied them to U.S. intelligence agencies like the CIA.

Sibel Edmonds, a former FBI translator and the founder of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition, has actually spoken out about the United States’ false, strategic portrayal of both Al-Qaeda and ISIS in order to revive the “terror scare” and further perpetuate the “terror war industry.”

In a Russia Today interview, Edmonds explains that ISIS was actually created by the U.S. in order to facilitate a brand change, shifting the attention from Al-Qaeda to ISIS. Al-Qaeda was starting to die down, so they needed to create a heightened state of fear about another terrorist group, which is part of the reason the U.S. funded ISIS so heavily. Edmonds also goes on to discuss Western media’s role in the creation of ISIS, as they further perpetuate the fear and fake stories surrounding these “terrorist attacks.”

You can read more about the origin of ISIS in our CE article here.

In regards to U.S. interests in the Syrian war, I believe a lot of it comes down to financial incentive. The U.S. is making a killing off selling arms to terrorist groups, and they are simultaneously creating a heightened security state in their own country and Syria, giving themselves more control over American and Syrian civilians. This leads to another potential incentive for the U.S. to continue to fund ISIS, and particularly the White Helmets, which is to create a shadow government in Syria.

It all comes down to the global elite’s plan for a New World Order; however, if we continue to educate others and collectively shift our consciousness, we can prevent the NWO from occurring.

Nearly Half of All Health Care Workers At Chicago’s Loretto Hospital Refuse COVID-19 Vaccine

Avatar

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A survey conducted at Chicago's Loretto Hospital shows that only 40 percent of healthcare workers will take the COVID-19 vaccine once it's available to them.

  • Reflect On:

    Why does vaccine hesitancy not only among people, but healthcare workers seem to be growing larger and larger every single year?

What Happened: Earlier this month Dr. Nikhila Juvvadi, the chief clinical officer at Chicago’s Loretto Hospital, said that a survey was administered there to healthcare workers in December regarding who would get the COVID-19 vaccine and who wouldn’t. The survey found that 40 percent of the hospital staff said they would not get vaccinated and 60 percent said they would.

Juvvadi said that, “in her hospital, a lot of that hesitancy is based on minority groups’ deep-rooted mistrust of vaccinations and other large-scale health care programs; “I’ve heard Tuskegee more times than I can count in the past month – and, you know, it’s a valid, valid concern.”

In 1972, a government whistleblower, Peter Buxton, revealed that for the previous forty years, beginning in 1932, both CDC and the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) conducted the so called “Tuskegee Experiment” to study the progression of untreated syphilis in impoverished African-American men in rural Alabama. Public health regulators lured illiterate sharecroppers with the promise of hot meals, funeral costs and free health care from the U.S. government. According to the Centers for Disease Control, which took over the study in the early 1960’s, none of 299 syphilitic sharecroppers were ever told they had the disease. CDC purposefully withheld penicillin after the antibiotic became a proven treatment in 1947. CDC actively prevented participants from accessing syphilis treatment programs elsewhere. CDC’s victims in that study included numerous men who died of syphilis, 40 wives who contracted the disease, and 19 children born with congenital syphilis.

When, in 1966, Buxton sent a letter to government regulators complaining about the ethics and morality of the study, CDC reaffirmed the need to continue the research until all subjects had died and been autopsied. To bolster its position, the CDC sought, and gained support for the study’s extension, from the American Medical Association (AMA).

Buxton finally told his story to my uncle, Senator Edward Kennedy in July of 1972. Senator Kennedy convened Senate hearings, at which Buxton and HEW officials testified and CDC finally terminated the study. – Robert F Kennedy Jr.

Why This Is Important: COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy, and vaccine hesitancy in general is nothing new. Riverside County, California has a population of approximately 2.4 million, and about 50 percent of healthcare workers in the county are refusing to take the COVID-19 vaccine despite the fact that they have top priority and access to it.  At Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills, one in five frontline nurses and doctors have declined the shot. Roughly 20% to 40% of L.A. County’s frontline workers who were offered the vaccine did the same, according to county public health officials, and fewer than half of the hospital workers at St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Tehama County, Calif., were willing to be vaccinated. You can read more about this story here.

Roughly 55 percent of surveyed New York Fire Department firefighters said they would not get the coronavirus vaccine, the Firefighters Association president said last month.

 A recent survey by Kaiser Family Foundation found that nearly a third of health care workers across America would probably or definitely would refuse the vaccination.

A recent Gallup poll showed that only 58% of Americans plan on getting the COVID vaccine when it’s available. An October poll conducted by Zogby found that nearly 50% of Americans have concerns about the safety of the coming COVID vaccines.

Vaccine hesitancy is nothing new, and it’s been an issue prior to the COVID vaccination. A number of studies point this out, for example, a study published in Clinical Microbiology and Infection in 2017 titled “Addressing vaccine hesitancy: the crucial role of healthcare providers” is a great example.

Another one published a year before titled “Vaccine hesitancy and healthcare providers” is also a good example. One of the authors of this study, Dr. Heidi Larson a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project Emphasized this point at a World Health Organization (WHO) conference on vaccine safety at the end of 2019.

The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers. We have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines. That’s a huge problem, because to this day any study I’ve seen…still, the most trusted person on any study I’ve seen globally is the health care provider. (More information and links to the conference here)

There are many studies regarding vaccine hesitancy, and if you go through the literature the main causes seem to be a lack of trust for pharmaceutical companies and various concerns about vaccines that have yet to be answered. Aluminum, for example is one. The adjuvant is blamed for adverse reactions and injuries, and science is and has been raising cause for concern for many years.

 A recent publication in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) by one of its associate editors, Dr. Peter Doshi,  titled ” Pfizer and Moderna’s “95% effective” vaccines—let’s be cautious and first see the full data” calls into question these claims by the COVID vaccine manufacturer. I thought I’d post it here in case you were interested in reading it. It raises a few of many issues as to why some people are hesitant as well.

When it comes to a lack of trust, this is completely understandable, is it not?  For example, in 2010 Robert G. Evans, PhD, Centre for Health Services and Policy Research Emeritus Professor, Vancouver School of Economics, UBC, published a paper that’s accessible in PubMed titled “Tough on Crime? Pfizer and the CIHR.”

In it, he outlines the fact that,

Pfizer has been a “habitual offender,” persistently engaging in illegal and corrupt marketing practices, bribing physicians and suppressing adverse trial results. Since 2002 the company and its subsidiaries have been assessed $3 billion in criminal convictions, civil penalties and jury awards. The 2.3-billion settlement…set a new record for both criminal fines and total penalties. A link with Pfizer might well advance the commercialization of Canadian research.

Concerning conflicts of interest, specific to the COVID-19 vaccine also seem to be raising concerns. According to Kamran Abba, executive editor of the BMJ and the editor of the Bulletin of the World Health Organization, “The UK’s pandemic response relies too heavily on scientists and other government appointees with worrying competing interests, including shareholdings in companies that manufacture covid-19 diagnostic tests, treatments, and vaccines.”  Perhaps this is why other therapies and treatments that have shown success have been brushed off, ignored and in some cases labelled as “fake news.”

Over the last few months, I have seen academic articles and op-eds by professors retracted or labeled “fake news” by social media platforms. Often, no explanation is provided. I am concerned about this heavy-handedness and, at times, outright censorship. – Vinay Prasad, MD, MPH (source)

Another recent article published in the BMJ by journalist Paul D. Thacker highlights the conflicts of interest that exist between the United Kingdom’s COVID-19 advisors, which also seems to be a common theme around the globe. Based on my research this seems to be a global phenomenon.

A few years ago more than a dozen scientists from within the CDC put out an anonymous public statement detailing the influence corporations have on government policies. They were referred to as the  Spider Papers. The scientists outlined great corruption that happens at “all levels” within the CDC.

The Takeaway: Vaccines are not a one size fits all product, in the US alone nearly $4 billion has been paid out to families of vaccine injured children, and a number of studies are calling into question their safety.

For the most part anybody who is concerned about vaccine safety is usually dubbed an “anti-vax conspiracy theorist.” Concerns that many scientists, doctors and people are bringing up with regards to vaccine safety are never really acknowledged or addressed, which brings me to my next point.

Why do we have such a hard time discussing controversial topics? Why are things always made out to seem so black and white? Why are we so polarized in our beliefs to the point where we can’t look at another viewpoint that challenges our own? Why can’t we understand why some people disagree with us and why they feel the way they do?

Should freedom of choice not always remain?

A Sad Day For Truth & Journalism As Donald Trump Fails To Pardon Julian Assange

Avatar

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Donald Trump did not pardon Wikileaks' Julian Assange in the final hours of his presidency.

  • Reflect On:

    What does it say about our world of those who expose immoral and unethical actions by powerful people and institutions are locked up, censored, silenced, tortured and ridiculed?

What Happened: In a slew of pardons and commutations issued during the final hours of his presidency, Donald Trump did not pardon Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden recently posted a tweet from former Maine State senator, Eric Brakey, that reads as follows: “The Failure to pardon Assange, Snowden and Ulbricht is a great final act of cowardice and submission to the Deep State.” Deep state refers to the influence and sway that various powerful people, corporations, financial institutions and more have on political policy and decision making around the world. These days many people believe that America, for example, no longer represents a democracy but rather a ‘corporatocracy’ so to speak.

Snowden also reacted to the development by tweeting that he was “not at all disappointed to go unpardoned by a man who has never known a love he had not paid for. But what supporters of his remain must never forgive that this simpering creature failed to pardon truth-tellers in far more desperate circumstances.”

When it comes to Julian Assange, we are talking about a man who exposed a number of immoral and unethical actions by several governments. Wikileaks exposed, in great detail, the corruption that plagues these ‘institutions’ as well as the corruption that lives amongst dozens of powerful corporations that control almost every aspect of our lives, from food, to health, to energy resources and more.

In response to the leaks made by Assange, and other people like Snowden for example, the US government’s classic response was and still is that by leaking the information they did, they put America in harm’s way. They often say this citing the fact that they leaked classified information.

Today classified information doesn’t seem to be classified for national security purposes. Instead, “national security” seems to be commonly cited in order to justify the concealment of information that threatens various corporate, financial and political Agendas.

JFK warned the citizenry about “an announced need for increased security” that would be “seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.” This is what’s happening today.

When it comes to Julian Assange I like to share a hard-hitting quote that always comes to mind every time I write about him. It comes from Nils Melzer, Human Rights Chair of the Geneva Academy of Int Humanitarian Law and Human Rights, Prof of Int Law at the University of Glasgow, UN Rapporteur on Torture and Other Inhumane or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.

How far have we sunk if telling the truth becomes a crime? How far have we sunk if we prosecute people that expose war crimes for exposing war crimes? How far have we sunk when we no longer prosecute our own war criminals? Because we identify more with them, than we identify with the people that actually expose these crimes. What does that tell about us and about our governments? In a democracy, the power does not belong to the government, but to the people. But the people have to claim it. Secrecy disempowers the people because it prevents them from exercising democratic control, which is precisely why governments want secrecy.

Why This Is Important/Final Thoughts: The silencing and straight ridicule of truth and/or information that again, threatens various political, corporate, financial and elite agendas is commonplace today. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, today we have a digital authoritarian Orwellian “fact-checker” patrolling the internet telling people what is and what isn’t, deciding for the user what they are allowed to see and what they aren’t allowed to see. Censorship of people like Assange and organizations like Wikileaks has really ramped up. Independent media outlets, (like Collective Evolution), and what seems to be thousands of scientists, doctors, journalists, academics and people who simply present information, evidence and opinions that go against the grain are having their social media accounts removed. This is why we here at Collective Evolution are encouraging all of our followers to join our Telegram account. It’s a censorship free platform.

Assange has been subjected to extremely inhumane conditions and torture. What’s happening with him is not only sad, but it’s truly alarming and what’s even more concerning is that many people don’t have any idea about it. He is being completely ignored by the mainstream media and whenever they do cover it, they do so with the perception that he actually did something wrong. Did he?  They’ve run an absolute smear campaign on him.

I came across an interesting post by activist Greg Bean. In it, he brings up Johannes Gutenberg, the man who first introduced the printing press to the world.

He writes about how that single act created a free press, which gave birth to the concept of freedom of speech, and how the two are “inextricably linked; printing is a form of speech.”

Gutenberg’s invention started the Printing Revolution, a milestone of the 2nd millennium that initiated the modern period of human history including the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Age of Enlightenment, and the Scientific Revolution, and began the knowledge-based economy that spread learning to the masses. Such mass communication permanently altered the structure of society. Removing control of information from the hands of the powerful and delivering it into the hands of the disempowered.

The broad circulation of information, including revolutionary ideas, in many languages, undermined Latin’s dominant status and the authority previously held by those trained in Latin, it transcended borders, threatened the power of political and religious authorities, increased literacy breaking the monopoly of the literate elite on education and learning, and bolstered the emerging middle class. It increased cultural self-awareness and cultural cohesion and undermined the authority of distant rulers and high priests.

WikiLeaks’ threat to the powerful was recognised and every effort was, and is, being made to criminalise anonymous leaking, which would be akin to criminalizing Gutenberg’s printing press, but there is not much chance this criminalisation will succeed.

I suggest you read the full piece as it makes some very interesting points.

Is Mainstream “UFO Disclosure” A “Psyop” For A “False Flag” Alien Invasion? – I Doubt It

Avatar

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Mainstream UFO disclosure is taking off and the subject is no longer taboo. There's a common narrative in the field suggesting that because mainstream media is presenting the topic the way they now are, the phenomenon represents nothing but lies.

  • Reflect On:

    Does mainstream media cover real events and attempt to manipulate the perception of the masses regarding such events? Are there powerful groups of people out there who want to control the narrative when it comes to the topic of UFOs?

Collective Evolution has been covering the UFO/extraterrestrial (see UFO article archive here) phenomenon since our inception in 2009, and one common theme we’ve come across many times in the “truther” community, for lack of a better word, is the idea that some very powerful people are planning to stage a “false flag” alien invasion and that this subject is full of deception. This article will discuss the possibility and plausibility of a “false flag” alien invasion as well as the claim that mainstream UFO disclosure represents nothing but deception.

Is Mainstream UFO Disclosure Deception? As many of you reading this probably already know, the UFO topic has been and is being completely legitimized within the mainstream. The subject is no longer taboo, and institutions like the Pentagon, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and multiple governments around the world have admitted that these objects are real. Not only that, but collectively they’ve released millions of pages of previously classified documents detailing the reality of the phenomenon. These documents include radar tracking data, high ranking military testimony, stories of unknown objects that have been retrieved, photographic evidence and much more. We’re talking about objects performing maneuvers that defy our understanding of aerodynamics that can perform maneuvers no known aircraft is capable of performing. Video footage of unidentified objects have also been released by multiple governments, and coverage from CNN and the New York Times, for example, also further this point.

So is this all some sort of great deception? If you believe it to be I ask you this, why would governments and intelligence agencies around the world, for decades, completely ridicule this topic and encourage people to view it as a “conspiracy theory?” Why would they deny the phenomenon for so long? The same organizations who are now giving a tremendous amount of legitimacy to the topic are the same ones who, according to former CIA director Roscoe Hillenkoetter, initiated an “official campaign of ridicule and secrecy.” If you want to deceive a population and make them believe UFOs are real you don’t use ridicule and constantly tell the population that these objects are not real. Furthermore, you don’t push the idea that those who believe in UFOs are crackpots. If you wanted to deceive the public about UFOs this would be completely counterproductive.

The statement by Hillenkoetter is quite easy to see if one goes back and studies the literature and lore surrounding ufology and the way it’s been covered by mainstream media for decades. This ridicule campaign has also been corroborated by multiple “insiders” with backgrounds within intelligence. Richard Doty, a former member of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, for example, claimed that his job was to actually spread disinformation within the UFO community, making it more difficult for anybody within these communities to arrive at any kind of truth.

Despite these ridicule efforts by intelligence agencies and governments, the evidence suggesting these objects are indeed and were real, in my opinion, has been quite evident for a very long time. It’s a shame that for something to be legitimized in the minds of the masses it must be covered in a certain way by mainstream media outlets. This is still a big problem on our planet and it’s a concern that mainstream media can have such an influence on human consciousness.

So Why So Much Mainstream Media Coverage All of a Sudden? If It’s Not Deception, What Is It? In my opinion, the idea that these objects are real became so obvious that mainstream media had no choice but to jump on the train, so to speak. Not only do we have all of the evidence mentioned above, but perhaps the best piece of evidence are people’s own personal experiences. My own experience with UFOs for example has fueled my interest in the topic for quite some time now, and it seems that the next step to take is to listen to people who (claim to) have had experiences.

There is a lingering idea out there I often come across, and that’s the idea that anything mainstream media covers must be and is completely false and represents deception. I do understand this perception given the fact that mainstream media, in my opinion, has largely been a mouthpiece for the corporate and political establishment. I’ve written in depth about why I feel this way before, and presented whistleblower testimony as well as documents that’ve been released via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) showing the very close connection these media outlets have to governments, intelligence agencies and big powerful corporations.

My observation over the years has been that mainstream media does indeed cover real events and stories but is in many cases constantly engaged in manipulating the perception of the masses for such events. We see this all the time with geopolitical issues, like major terrorist attacks for example. On one hand you will have Western media blaming a terrorist organization like ISIS, and on the other you will have foreign media claiming it was a “false flag” attack perpetuated by the West. This would mean that Western governments, or factions of it, would be funding terrorist organizations, arming them or in some cases creating events and carrying out attacks and blaming it on a terrorist organization. In turn, this would allow them to justify the invasion of a foreign country under the guise of good will for ulterior motives.

Could we be seeing the same thing with the topic of UFOs? Are there people who gain gain from narrative control and perception manipulation? Is mainstream media coverage of UFOs an attempt to control our perception of the phenomenon? Is this more likely the explanation rather than an elite group of people completely fabricating the phenomenon? Having been a researcher of the subject for more than fifteen years, I can tell you that the topic is extremely vast and leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. It opens pandora’s box and it becomes extremely complex as more and more questions continue to emerge. What we receive from mainstream media and/or government/government affiliated agencies will no doubt be a sanitized version of truth in my opinion. We cannot make the mistake of characterizing the behaviour of these objects based on the selected few cases that will be released into the public and beamed out by mainstream media. We cannot allow our perception of the phenomenon to be given to us by government or mainstream media. As with most other topics it’s important to do our own research and investigation instead of relying on information from what seems to be such unreliable sources.

An Unnecessary Threat Narrative? A False Flag Alien Event? One thing I’ve noticed so far with regard to mainstream UFO disclosure, and I am sure others have as well, is “threat” narrative. The idea that these objects represent a possible threat and are therefore a big time national security issue that deserves serious attention. Having studied this topic for a number of years, one thing remains quite obvious as I am sure is the same for other researchers in the field, and that’s the fact that the behaviour of these objects has never really constituted a threat. There’s nothing they have really done, at least in the majority of cases, that represents the justification of the threat assumption. These objects are constantly performing evasive maneuvers to avoid our air-craft, and furthermore they’ve been documented not only for decades, but for thousands of years. If some type of threat was imminent, it would probably have already happened by now, no?

I want to draw your attention to a recent statement made by Dr. Jacques Vallee on the Joe Rogan show.

We have to stop reacting to intrusions by UFOs as a threat, I mean that’s the whole thing behind this new task force, as much as I respect, you know, the task force, my colleagues and I want to cooperate with them to the extent that we can bring information or resources to what they do. But there is more, this is not, should not be looked at specifically as a threat…With the phenomenon that we observe if they wanted to blow up those F18s they would do it. Obviously that’s not what it’s all about, and this idea of just labelling it all as a threat because it’s unknown, that’s the wrong idea.

Vallee is an astrophysicist and a computer scientist.   The subject of UFOs first attracted his attention as an astronomer in Paris. He subsequently became a close associate of Project Blue Book’s J. Allen Hynek and has written several books on the UFO enigma. He is currently a venture capitalist living in San Francisco. Vallée co-developed the first computerized map of Mars for NASA in 1963. He later worked on the network information center for the ARPANET, a precursor to the modern Internet, as a staff engineer of SRI International’s Augmentation Research Center under Douglas Engelbart. He’s clearly a very intelligent man who knows a lot about the phenomenon, and someone who I as a fellow, younger UFO researcher have been following for a long time.

With this quote above, he shares the feelings I’ve been putting out in written form for many years, that perceiving the activity of these objects as a threat is the wrong way to go. It’s interesting because through his work he’s also brought awareness to the disinformation campaign that surrounds this subject, something I’ve also covered for many years and touched upon earlier in this article.

In his book, “Forbidden Science 4” for example, Valle explains how he came into possession of documents showing that forced “UFO abductions” were conducted by the CIA as psychological warfare experiments. Again that’s one of multiple examples.

It goes to show how complicated this issue is and how hard it can be to arrive to any type of truth and draw conclusions.

The “task force” he mentions in the quote above refers to To The Stars Academy, who is working with the US Department of Defense, and has been for quite some time, to disclose the reality of the UFO phenomenon to the public. The military jets he refers to comes from an encounter released by this organization in cooperation with the Pentagon. Again, it’s important to ask why a threat narrative may exist. Is it to receive more funding? To profit off of the UFO topic in some sort of way? To profit off of and gain control and access to technologies that may be better off in the hands of the public?

If there’s one thing I can tell you, and I am sure Vallee and many others would do the same, stories from the public as well as many other ‘high ranking’ people regarding this phenomenon are littered with positive stories about benevolent beings who are concerned about the direction we (the human race) are heading. This is quite commonplace and does corroborate with the activity these objects (UFOs) demonstrate in many ways. That being said, it’s important to mention that the field also has stories about with appears to be malevolent stories.  In either case there is an overwhelming amount of corroboration from supposed experiencers.

False Flag Alien Invasion? What about the idea of a false flag alien invasion? Personally, I believe this would be extremely hard to pull off and I don’t think the resources and cooperation that would be required to pull off such an event exist. Sure, there’s no doubt that a false flag staged event could be plausible, especially given the fact that it seems  governments and “the powers that be” have had access to this technology for decades. This would involve a few objects, or perhaps just one in my opinion and it would be covered by media outlets worldwide. Again, according to Vallee as mentioned above, the CIA was staging alien abductions in Central America. Is a false flag alien invasion a possibility? Sure. I would argue however that it’s not a probability. The only “false flag” type of event that would happen with UFOs, I believe, and is possibly currently happening is mainstream media simply attaching a threat narrative to the phenomenon using already existing footage and evidence that’s been released to the public.

Many decades ago Wernher Von Brauns mentor Hermann Oberth, the founding father of rocketry and astronautics, also known as the ‘father of Spaceflight’ stated his belief that “flying saucers are real” and that “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.” He wrote these words in “Flying Saucers Come From A Distant World”, The American  Weekly, Oct 24, 1954. At the time, academics like Oberth were well aware of the UFO phenomenon.

Apparently, Braun was the one who first warned of a false flag alien invasion. This was expressed by Carol Rosin. Rosin was the first female corporate manager of Fairchild Industries. A space and missile defence consultant who has worked with various corporations, government departments, and intelligence communities, she worked closely with Wernher Von Braun shortly before his death, specifically on the subject of space-based weapons. This claim is corroborated by Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, as expressed in a Wikileaks dump a few years ago.

According to Rosin, a threat narrative would be attached to the UFO phenomenon for the purpose of building space based weapons.

And remember Carol, the last card is the alien card. We’re going to have to build space based weapons against aliens,’ and all of it, he said, is a lie.

The Takeaway: As I said before and have said many times, this topic is extremely complex and leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. At the very least it forces humanity to expand its consciousness and consider truths and possibilities that were never considered before. Based on my research and experience, the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon is not so much about “them” as it is about “us” and our relationship with the planet and all life that resides on it.

If anything, I believe the more we explore this topic the more it will coincide with more people questioning the way we live on this planet, why we live the way we do and what exactly it is that is preventing us from thriving. One thing is for certain, humanity has the potential to create a human experience where everybody can thrive.

We have the solutions, that’s not the problem, the issue seems to be the consciousness behind these solutions and innovations. Do we use groundbreaking technology, for example, to profit, gain more power and build weaponry? Or do we use it for the good of the whole? Are our systems set up to put people, compassion, understanding and empathy first, or are we still ruled by greed, the lust for power, control and other factors that dominate the ego. Perhaps the topic can help us understand a little more about ourselves and what we are, because we still have so much to discover.
