President Trump has been very outspoken about his stance on abortion. Last year, he even claimed that women who have abortions should face some sort of legal punishment. He has also publicly spoke out against Planned Parenthood, specifically opposing their abortion services.

During a Republican presidential debate, Trump recognized that Planned Parenthood “helps millions and millions of women” who turn to the organization for services like breast and cervical-cancer screenings. However, he also explained that he would gladly defund it because it performs abortions, something he clearly doesn’t support.

One of the first steps President Trump actually took on his first day in the Oval Office was to sign a ban on federal money going to international organizations that perform or simply provide information about abortion services. Yesterday, Trump’s ban came into fruition as he signed legislation cutting off federal funding to Planned Parenthood and other organizations offering abortion services.

What Does Trump’s Anti-Abortion Law Mean?

Don’t worry, women are not being completely banned from having abortions in the U.S., but this law is certainly cause for concern for those of us that are pro-choice. However, this new law will certainly provide some barriers for women in need of abortion services or healthcare in general.

“Despite repeated promises that he would protect and invest in women’s health, President Trump has once again shown that his words carry little weight,” argued Heidi Williamson, the senior policy analyst for the Women’s Health and Rights Program at the Center for American Progress. “Trump’s actions are creating very real and damaging consequences for millions of women and their families, inflicting direct harm on already vulnerable communities.”

Towards the end of Obama’s term, he passed a rule that prevented state and local governments from withholding federal funding for family planning services regarding contraception, sexually transmitted infections, pregnancy, breast and cervical cancer, and abortions. Unfortunately, the Trump administration’s new law nullifies and essentially reverses the previous actions taken by Obama.

Ironically, it was Vice President Mike Pence who cast the tie-breaking vote in the Senate, who hasn’t exactly been shy in sharing his views on abortion. “A society can be judged by how it deals with its most vulnerable, the aged, the infirm, the disabled, and the unborn. I believe it with all my heart,” Pence said at one of the debates. “And I couldn’t be more proud to be standing with a pro-life candidate in Donald Trump.” (source)

Of course, one of the largest organizations that’s affected by this new law is Planned Parenthood. The majority of the federal funding Planned Parenthood actually receives supports preventative health care, birth control, pregnancy tests, and other women’s health services. In fact, only 3% of the services the organization provides are abortions.

President Trump actually proposed that Planned Parenthood could keep its funding if it stopped providing abortion services. Thankfully, the organization didn’t accept his conservative deal, stating that the organization would never do such a thing.

To be clear, we’re not advocating women should use birth control, nor are we ignorant of some of the corruption within Planned Parenthood (read more about that here and here). I actually wrote an article on the dangers of using birth control, which you can read about here. However, that doesn’t mean that women shouldn’t be entitled to make their own decisions about their body.

People are allowed to take pharmaceuticals, eat whatever they want, and subject their bodies to toxins and other harmful substances. We all have free will to do whatever we want to our own bodies. Although I believe your body is your temple and that you should treat it with care, at the end of the day, it’s ultimately just that: Your body.

Your Body, Your Choice?

The U.S. healthcare system doesn’t fund abortions anyways, with the exception of rape, incest, or to save a woman’s life. This doesn’t seem entirely fair to me, as I don’t think healthcare should be determined by the amount of money we have saved in our bank accounts.

What so many people who are anti-abortion seem to forget is that if it’s not your body, it’s not your decision to make. Who are we to judge women if they want to have an abortion? Likewise, we shouldn’t judge women if they choose not to have abortions, either. So many women are shamed into or out of having abortions by other people, it can be easy to forget that the decision shouldn’t be made at the societal level, but rather at the individual, soul level.

We shouldn’t judge any human being, regardless of the decisions they make and actions they take. We are all on our own journey, there isn’t “one right path” for us all to take during what we call “the human experience.”

Even if you yourself don’t support abortion or you don’t think you’d ever have one, that doesn’t give you the right to tell others how to think or what to do. Part of the beauty in this world is understanding why we all have such different opinions. We all endure different experiences and hold different truths, leading us to have completely opposing belief systems.

We live in a dualistic world, and so society takes these polarizing views on subjects like abortion, claiming that they’re either pro- or anti- certain topics, creating even more separatism. By claiming to be anti-abortion, you’re perpetuating a certain belief system, which could ultimately prevent you from learning from and connecting with others.

Of course, abortion isn’t a subject to take lightly, and it’s not as “black and white” as being for or against it. The physical, emotional, and energetic repercussions of having an abortion can be incredibly difficult. Abortions can lead to the manifestation of other physical ailments and can cause tons of emotional and energetic blockages for women (and even men), particularly regarding the sacral chakra.

At a soul level, I believe we choose our most difficult experiences in order to learn and grow from them. Given the difficulty surrounding the before and aftermath of abortions, why would anyone want to make that experience even more difficult for them? We shouldn’t shame people for the decisions they make, regardless of how we feel about them. The world is our greatest mirror, as we are all reflections of one another. Remember that next time you’re arguing with someone or judging someone for their actions or beliefs!

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?
