Over the past week, NBC’s Megyn Kelly has taken a lot of heat over her controversial interview with Alex Jones. You may be familiar with Alex Jones’ work at Info Wars, as he’s gained an extensive following after years of work in alternative news and “conspiracy theories.” To be clear, I genuinely believe that Alex Jones has helped the movement at times, and I recognize the role he played in my own life and my personal “waking up” process. However, he is also notorious for reacting and communicating in extreme ways, jumping to conclusions that are often false and potentially bringing a lack of credibility to alternative media at times.

Though his intensity is clearly indicative of the passion he has for his work, which is very inspiring at times, this type of reaction did not necessarily serve him in his interview with Megyn Kelly (though I’m not sure if you could even call it an interview, as it was clearly a hit piece against Jones as well as a form of political propaganda). We get into more details about this specifically in our latest docu-series episode at the end of this article.

When I first watched the interview, I remember thinking, this cannot be the full story. This was another clear example of mainstream media (MSM) not providing the full picture, and simply publishing a “political fluff” piece rather than real, honest news. To be frank, I wasn’t sure if it was even deserving of an article at first, because it lacked substance and was clearly over-edited.

It seemed like Jones’ responses to Megyn in the interview weren’t actually his responses, but rather misplaced sentences meant to paint Jones in an unflattering light and simply put words in his mouth. However, did Alex really expect MSM to accurately portray who he is? Most of what MSM spews is altered, falsified, or dramatized, so it’s unsurprising that his interview was no different from the regular narrative we see on MSM news networks.

So, What Lessons Can We Take From Jones’ Interview?

In my opinion, one of the things we can learn from this interview is the importance of neutrality. In this particular interview, you have two very different people who represent very different things reflecting a similar state of consciousness. Both parties use extreme emotions and statements, both promote fear and anger, and neither of them are truly independent or neutral.

Megyn Kelly, who clearly had her own agenda, is not doing her journalistic duty by putting out a piece like this. Instead of choosing more relevant stories, she only focused on the Sandy Hook shootings. Not that this particular event doesn’t deserve media attention, but this occurred in 2012, and ultimately Jones has a lot more information out there that deserves to be discussed.

Why weren’t topics like the elite, occult rituals, Hillary Clinton’s corruption, or Jones’ work at the Bohemian Grove brought up? These are all stories that are far more shocking and controversial than a shooting that occurred five years ago, and that’s only four of many topics that Jones reports on that deserve to be discussed in the mainstream

Instead, Kelly only focused on one story, and involved one parent’s tragic loss. In addition, for viewers that weren’t well versed on Sandy Hook and the controversy surrounding it, they probably had no idea what was going on because she didn’t provide enough background information on the subject. Instead, she created an “I’m right, you’re wrong” dialogue with Jones, which serves absolutely no one. The entire interview lacked substance and evidence, with both offering mere conjecture and attacks on one another’s character.

Kelly also focused significantly on Jones’ ties to President Donald Trump, making it seem like this was a political propaganda piece. Kelly painted Jones in a negative light, just like MSM paints Trump in a negative light. Instead of allowing Jones to explain these relations, she only allowed him to get a few words in. Plus, by painting an inaccurate picture of Jones and then tying him to Trump, she has now associated Trump with “fake news,” which is ironic given that NBC is the real pusher of “fake news” here.

On the other hand, you have Alex Jones, who responded to the piece by referring to Megyn Kelly as a modern day “Medusa.” Don’t get me wrong, Jones clearly has reason to believe that Kelly had bad intentions, since she lied to him about the context of the interview, which he was able to prove by recording their phone calls.

However, his response was full of anger, which does not help his credibility or public image. Not only that, but he’s doing to Megyn exactly what she did to him. Both forms of media are coming from the same level of consciousness.

One of the most important aspects of journalism, and communication in general, is responding instead of reacting. Kevin Trudeau put it beautifully when he compared the difference between responding and reacting in regards to modern medicine: When we respond to medication, our bodies are working with it, but when we react to something, this means we’re experiencing some sort of negative effects.

The same can be said in any other scenario. When we respond to something or someone, we are taking a neutral stance and acting as the observer, whereas when we react, we are most often responding emotionally and with a particular viewpoint. It’s crucial when it comes to independent reporting and even everyday life that we respond instead of react.

When we’re mad, we often lose track of our thoughts, overcrowd our minds, and say things we don’t mean. Our passions can be mistaken for biases, and we can lose credibility for it. I’m not suggesting that you don’t develop passions or express them, but rather that you simply try your best to remain neutral and not let your passions turn into anger! At the end of the day, this will only upset you. 

Final Thoughts

Either way, this interview represents an opportunity for both Megyn Kelly and Alex Jones to grow and learn from their actions. Kelly has had an extensive career in MSM, and perhaps the negative backlash she’s receiving from this interview will act as a catalyst for her own change and encourage her to focus more on seeking the truth than raising her ratings and succumbing to the elite’s agenda.

This interview also shows us that the rise of conscious media is incredibly important. The ways of the past where we bash one side or the other with extreme emotion or drama does not serve to bring out the truth and only puts more of this drama into the public. Whereas if we can look at information from a neutral place, without emotion or bias to persuade viewers, we can transcend a form of media that is not serving us to advance consciously.

As for Alex Jones, perhaps this interview will show him that he could benefit from remaining more neutral and not letting his anger get the best of him. After all, he probably wouldn’t have attracted this type of interview into his life if he didn’t need to learn something from it. Though this extreme reactions have clearly served him in the past, and many others, as he has inspired so many of us to “wake up,” alternative media is currently under attack with all of these allegations of “fake news,” and expressing anger probably won’t help progress the movement any further.

We already see so much fear and anger expressed in MSM, as they manufacture so many stories about false villains; let’s keep this type of mindset out of independent journalism!

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.

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?
