Child sexual abuse has been one of Hollywood’s dirtiest and biggest secrets for a long time. One of the brave survivors who have come forward to share their experiences with the public is Corey Feldman, a former child-star.

Amidst all of the Harvey Weinstein scandals, Feldman chose to bring more attention to his child sexual abuse allegations in Hollywood, as sexual violence is extremely common in Hollywood and affects not only an astonishing number of women, but many men and children as well.

Feldman tweeted multiple times late last week explaining that although he will not name “anyone else’s” abuser, he would “love others to come forward.”

“For the record: I will not be going on a talk show to disclose names of my abuser or anyone else’s abusers. So please stop asking me to do so,” he tweeted.

He also noted that without proper protection for him and his family, he could not name names for safety reasons. “Also let me add, this is not about fear of being sued! Yes that’s a real possibility but the bigger reason is safety for my family,” Feldman tweeted.

“My career was shut down, I have been mocked and shamed for doing what I have done to this point!”

He added that he would “love others to come forward as there are many other witnesses to the crimes I have addressed. Still not one of my peers has offered anything up in a decade.”

Shortly after Feldman chose to recount his child sexual abuse allegations over social media, he was arrested for marijuana possession. However, the official story is full of holes, and Feldman was quick to point out the irony over the timing.

Corey Feldman Arrested for Marijuana Possession After Discussing Pedophilia in Hollywood

Only days after Feldman had publicly discussed the prevalence of pedophilia in Hollywood, making international headlines all over again, he was arrested under some pretty suspicious marijuana charges.

Feldman’s tour bus was pulled over for speeding, but then an officer allegedly “smelled marijuana” and searched Feldman. Feldman and his crew were then taken down to the station and Feldman was charged with speeding, driving under suspension, and possession of marijuana, although he was released after paying a fine.

However, Feldman took to Twitter again to share the details of his arrest, which differ from the official story. He wrote:

Crew having medical marijuana, with a legal CA prescription, I had nothing on me, but was charged because its my bus. Also 5 others were charged due to having legal medicines without their particular bottles. No illegal or street drugs were found on the bus at all! Which is why nobody spent the night in jail. However we were promised that these charges could all be dropped with proof of proper scripts! It was a bit of a good ol shakedown! After we paid them in cash, they asked for pics and autographs, and then called the local paper to do interviews!

It’s clear that Feldman faced some troubles with the law this week, but whether or not this was part of some greater plan to discourage him from speaking out about child sexual abuse and pedophilia in Hollywood remains unclear. All we know is that it’s important that we keep an open mind when listening to Feldman’s words and provide him with a safe space to speak his truth, otherwise other survivors will never come forward!

Feldman has not shied away from disclosing his encounters with child sexual abuse in Hollywood in the past.

In 2011, Feldman stated, “I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest problem for children in this industry. . . . It’s the big secret.”

“I was surrounded by [pedophiles] when I was 14 years old. . . .  Didn’t even know it. It wasn’t until I was old enough to realize what they were and what they wanted . . .  till I went, Oh, my God. They were everywhere,” he continued.

Final Thoughts 

Corey Feldman isn’t the first prominent actor to come forward to discuss the underground, unspoken world of pedophilia in Hollywood.

For example, Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood has spoken out about this issue as well. “Let me be clear: This subject of child abuse is an important one that should be discussed and properly investigated,” Wood said.

“It was all organized,” he continued. “There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind. There is darkness in the underbelly.”

“What bums me about these situations is that the victims can’t speak as loudly as the people in power,” Wood stated. “That’s the tragedy of attempting to reveal what is happening to innocent people: They can be squashed, but their lives have been irreparably damaged.”

The sad truth is, our economic system isn’t kind to sexual abuse survivors, whether it’s against women, men, or children. People in positions of authority abuse their power far too often to commit sex crimes, and then they get off scot-free because people are either too afraid to come forward or the justice system refuses to adequately punish powerful people.

As Feldman explained, “There was a circle of older men . . . around this group of kids. And they all had either their own power or connections to great power in the entertainment industry.”

It’s not just higher-ups in Hollywood who take advantage of their privilege and abuse their positions of authority, either. Cops, politicians, big shot executives, and other higher-ups and government officials commit sexually violent acts against men, women, and children far too oftenand yet many of these crimes go unpunished, or even worse, unacknowledged. Why? Because within the constraints of our current economic system, money and power often trump ethics.

Hierarchy is designed to benefit those who sit on top of the throne, and everyone else who lies below their positions are often left at a disadvantage. Our economic system is doing an injustice to rape survivors, as many feel they cannot share their experiences with the public because their aggressor holds so much power or public sway. What’s worse, many feel they cannot even say “no” in the first place because it would endanger their career, livelihood, or reputation.

That’s why it’s so important that we create an open, safe space for survivors to come forward. Many survivors are already terrified enough to share their experiences publicly; we should be making it easier for them to do so, not more difficult.

Much love!

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?
