Since last year’s outpour of women who were subjected to sexual abuse from high profile individuals in the entertainment industry, producer of eye-opening documentary, An Open Secret, Gabe Hoffman, decided to screen his film for free on Vimeo, “to commemorate serial predator Harvey Weinstein finally being exposed.”
The accusations against Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment cases from former employees and actresses date back decades. Weinstein was fired from The Weinstein Company, a company he co-founded back in 2005, and one-third of the company’s all-male board resigned and another four members took a leave of absence after the news broke. Politicians returned his contributions, and many actors and actresses stepped forward with details of their experiences with Harvey.
This scandal has inspired many women to share their stories of harassment and abuse through the #MeToo movement and still today, entertainers who were also exposed to sexual harassment are speaking out against other moguls in the industry who have taken advantage of them.
Women and men alike have shared their testimonies, but one group of individuals that lack representation in this crisis, are children.
Corey Feldman, popular child star from the 80’s, has made it his mission to share his own story of abuse from when he was a child entertainer and how difficult it was for him to get charges laid against his predators. We first covered his testimony back in 2014 and also shared other child stars who shared their stories of abuse like Allison Arngrim from Little House on the Prairie and Corey Haim, a close friend of Feldman who spoke of being fed drugs and taken advantage of.
When a parent is told that there child will be the ‘next star’, they almost immediately hand over all rights over for their child, assuming thats the best approach since they don’t have as much knowledge as the agents or scouts. When this happens, the child is left vulnerable and unprotected, leaving them at the mercy of individuals who have other intentions. I wrote before about the modelling industry and it’s poor standards for young models and shared the experience of Sara Ziff and how it motivated her to create the “Models’ Bill of Rights” and co-founded the Model Alliance,
When I entered the business as a 14-year-old schoolgirl, I was routinely asked to do topless shoots and pose seductively. To this day, in an industry dominated by minors, there is no policy of informed consent for jobs involving full or partial nudity. A recent survey shows that 86.8% of models have been asked to pose nude at a casting or job without advance notice.
An Open Secret
An Open Secret debuted in 2014 and garnered some attention, but shockingly not enough. I say this because the media is absolutely buzzing with scandal after scandal involving adult men and women, but there is not yet enough attention on the children that have been subjected to this abuse and are still being preyed on today.
Ashton Kutcher certainly brought attention to the abuse children from all over the world are suffering by going before U.S. Congress to educate and call to action human trafficking. His speech went viral and showed a different side of Ashton not many people knew. He is the chairman and Co-Founder of Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children, an international organization that fights against human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of children, which is why he has so much knowledge on the subject matter. His work is changing the fates of thousands upon thousands of human trafficking victims.
In 2016, Elijah Wood did an interview with The Sunday Times to promote a film, when the topic of child stars and pedophilia arose, “There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind. There is darkness in the underbelly,” he told the interviewer.
“What bums me about these situations is that the victims can’t speak as loudly as the people in power,” Wood continued. “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.” Wood stated that his comments were based on An Open Secret, “Let me be clear: This subject of child abuse is an important one that should be discussed and properly investigated,” he said. “But as I made absolutely clear to the writer, I have no firsthand experience or observation of the topic, so I cannot speak with any authority beyond articles I have read and films I have seen.”
An Open Secret is a documentary about the sexual abuse of teenage boys at the hands of Hollywood big-wigs and goes deeper into Digital Entertainment Network, best remembered today for hosting wild parties with drugs, alcohol and underage boys. Stories are shared by former teen actor Michael Egan III, talent manager Marty Weiss, who pleaded no contest to lewd acts on a child and who admits molestation in the film, and talent manager Bob Villard, who used to represent Leonardo DiCaprio and also pleaded no contest to lewd acts with a child.
You can watch the film for free because producer Gabe Hoffman, “wants to celebrate the brave women who have exposed Harvey,” but also exclaims that “Harvey Weinstein, by the way, is not the only one who has used confidentiality settlements. That’s why more of Hollywood’s behaviour hasn’t been exposed. This is the tip of the iceberg.”
Here is the trailer,
We all imagine a world where every child has the right to be themselves and express Love as nature intended but unfortunately for some, this will never be a world they will live in. No one wants to talk about the abuse, but the truth of the matter is that it’s happening and it’s up to each and every one of us to help bring light to this dark subject. No matter what age, abuse is unacceptable and if we truly wish to see a world where this is abolished, we must begin to seek and understand why this issue even exists and how we can prevent it from escalating. This is heavy stuff, so it’s also important that we allow ourselves to properly process this information so that we can act accordingly, in a way that doesn’t perpetuate the hate and violence, but that ends it effectively. This information can also serve as a daily reminder of gratitude for the amount of abundance our lives are given by family and friends.

The “Unmasking Antifa Act Of 2018”: The Nonsense Never Ends
- The Facts:
A bill has recently been submitted to Congress that specifically targets groups of people wearing masks who are preventing others from exercising their constitutional rights.
- Reflect On:
Can we see how much of what the government is doing with regards to violent protests and counter-protests is complicit with the way these protests are being used to prevent us from dealing effectively with the real issues?
Last year, in an attempt to condemn the ‘violence and domestic terrorism’ that took place during events between August 11 and August 12, 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Senate tabled the ‘Charlottesville Resolution’ whose main purpose was ‘rejecting White nationalists, White supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups, and urging the President and the President’s Cabinet to use all available resources to address the threats posed by those groups.’
Wow. Those Senators are really earning their salaries, aren’t they? Bravo–they’ve given the government more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.
Now this year, in an attempt to stem the rising violence perpetrated by the group called Antifa, Congress introduced Bill H. R. 6054:
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018’’.
SEC. 2. INTERFERENCE WITH PROTECTED RIGHTS WHILE IN DISGUISE.
(a) IN GENERAL.—Chapter 13 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by inserting after section 249 the following:
‘‘§ 250. Interference with protected rights while in disguise
‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, while in disguise, including while wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both.
Wow. They’re really getting to the heart of the matter here, aren’t they?–the masks. Granted, threatening the ‘free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to <any person> by the Constitution’ was already a punishable crime, even without a mask, but let’s not let that get in the way. The government should be congratulated for their accomplishment here, which again is doing nothing except giving themselves more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.
Who Supports These Groups?
I personally don’t know of anyone who supports White Nationalists, White Supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, or other hate groups. I also don’t know anyone who supports Antifa.
To be perfectly honest, I’m not even sure if many of the people that go out to protest and counter-protest in public are necessarily ardent supporters of their respective group’s fundamental ideologies. I believe many are paid mercenaries. Others may be looking for an opportunity to vent their own suppressed anger.
Can We Ignore Them?
Ideally, we should be completely ignoring violent groups with such extremist ideologies. But there is a reason we have a hard time doing so. It is because it is these groups that get to star in the mainstream media circus and in the political discourse, at the exclusion of the vast majority of citizens who are moderate, reasonable, and have legitimate grievances. Isn’t it farcical that we are still talking about the Ku Klux Klan? That they still exist?
There is a reason that groups like the KKK seem to be getting recycled from the dustbin of history, at the same time newer extremist movements like Antifa are being well-funded and supported: their violent confrontations continue to be used by the financial elite as a smoke screen to grab our attention and fill the headlines, all while discouraging the moderate and reasonable majority from actually speaking up in public about the real issues that face us today, about the real and obvious tyranny the financial elite continue to perpetuate.
Embers Of Fear Dying Out
For the financial elite, the agenda itself is irrelevant; as long as violence, chaos, and polarization are created, they are able to keep their game going and hold on to power. But it’s getting harder and harder for them to stoke the fires of fear and violence, as they need to infuse more energy and resources than ever to bring these events together.
As we awaken and evolve, more and more of the population is turning away from angry and violent opposition as a way of dealing with issues. It’s important that we remain conscious and avoid the temptation to participate in the false left/right dichotomy that is constantly on display in the political arena and in the mainstream media. As we see these violent confrontations fundamentally as staged events, and stop giving our emotional energy to one side or other of the polarity, these techniques will no longer have their intended effect, and we can look forward to the day that they will have eventually petered out.
Newly Discovered Crop Circle Has A Message For Humanity (July 2018)
- The Facts:
A new crop circle was recently discovered in the UK on July 8th, 2018. It was the exact depiction of the chemical weapons warning symbol.
- Reflect On:
Does this serve as a message for us to put down the chemical and nuclear weapons for good? Do we need to be using these weapons? This may also cause us to consider the poisoning of our planet in other ways.
A new crop circle was recently discovered on July 8th in Coneybury Hill, Nr Stonehenge, Wiltshire. This circle is the exact same as the chemical weapons warning symbol.
Interestingly this crop circle was found shortly after the death of Dawn Sturgess who had come into contact with a deadly nerve agent.
While we can’t know for sure, this crop circle certainly appears to be a message to humanity about the dangers of chemical weapons and the catastrophic damage they can cause, regardless of who you believe made it. Perhaps this circle symbolizes the fact that these weapons have no place in our world, and it’s time we got rid of them, for good.
Check out some amazing drone footage of this newly discovered crop circle below.
It is not all that surprising to see this message show up in a crop circle, as in the past we have seen deliberate ET intervention when nuclear weapons would have otherwise been used. We have covered this topic before, and the following is an excerpt from an older article,
One of many previously classified reports -out of the thousands in existence -that is now available in the public domain is the intrusion at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, on August 24, 1966. Air Force personnel were concerned about a light in the sky. A team went to check it out and confirmed the object, then saw a second white object while doing so. The object was tracked on radar and moved vertical several times; each time it descended, an air force officer in charge of a missile crew found his radio transmission interrupted by static. The object eventually descended to ground level, and the Air Force sent a team to check it out. They saw the object either on the ground or hovering very low. According to the official report:
“When the team was about ten miles from the landing site, static disrupted radio contact with them. Five to eight minutes later, the glow diminished, and the UFO took off. Another UFO was visually sighted and confirmed by radar. The one that was first sighted passed beneath the second. Radar also confirmed this. The first made for altitude toward the north, and the second seemed to disappear with the glow of red.”
Here are a couple of more articles that go into greater detail regarding the connections between UFO’s and nuclear missiles:
Why Are They Stopping Nukes?
It seems that these extraterrestrials know just how damaging nuclear weapons can be to our planet, and possibly to our entire solar system. There is information that says that UFO’s have been deactivating nuclear weapons since we created them and started to show up a lot more often when we were testing the atomic bomb. Thankfully, someone or something has our back and is helping to stop us, humanity from making a huge mistake.

The Deep Truth Behind Why Trump Is President
- The Facts:
Since Trump's presidency, we have seen many of humanities shadows thrust into conversation. Not just shadows of Trump, but each and every one of us. The media has been aggressively opposing Trump almost all the way through.
- Reflect On:
What is Trump's presidency showing us about ourselves? Why are we seeing a full out media attack on Trump? Is the cabal losing power? Are we beginning to see the first stages of big shifts away from oppressive regimes?
A little backstory before we get into the video below. Back in 2016, following the election, we had stated that there seemed to be a pretty large shift in power given that Trump made his way into office. How did this happen? Here is a brief outline.
There is a divide taking place within the Cabal/Deep State. This divide is causing power struggles as some facets work to move away from the entirely destructive means of the previous many decades, and instead work towards a different path. Is this an entirely ‘good’ path? No, but we’re going to see this as a HUGE welcome improvement as we continue to shift our consciousness.
This divide works its way through intelligence agencies whereby ‘white hats,’ as you can call them, begin to bring forth leaks, information and dealings that help break apart the extremely oppressive end of the cabal. White hats are essentially everyday individuals, like Snowden was, who work inside intelligence agencies and who are also having a shift in consciousness within themselves. No longer do they wish to support the ways of the old, the ways it would have been if Hillary made it into office.
So we begin to see a power struggle, one that is obviously coming as a result of having an ‘outsider’ in office that is shaking things up QUICKLY.
How Did Trump Get In?
First off, what I mentioned above is a big part of it. On top of that, was the flip in electoral college manipulation that usually takes place when a president is chosen. Was Hillary Clinton furiously angry after the election because she didn’t get enough support from the general populace? No, she was furiously angry because her side of the Cabal/Deep State, who promised her a win and bought the entire media to help make it happen, flipped in part, causing enough of a change to have Trump get in.
Now typically people tend to think that when you talk about things in this manner it means you are in favor of Republicans and Trump. But this is primitive thinking in that it only looks at one tiny layer of what’s happening to apply an explanation we can then be comfortable with. When in reality, all that is happening here is we are looking at what is ACTUALLY happening, not what we are being told what is happening.
You do not have to be pro Trump, pro Republican, or even in support of politics at all, for that matter, to see what’s truly taking place here.
Regardless, questions have been coming in for months and months to CE, asking what we think about Trump, whether we are in support of him and what all of this ‘chaos’ means. Of course, some, because we speak about things honestly and from a neutral perspective, tend to think we side with Trump because SOME of the actions of his administration and who’s behind him are actually in favor of humanity, and we report on them.
But regardless of the amount of explanation we have tried to bring to this somewhat complicated situation, I felt we needed something VERY clear. So I created a video expressing what Trump’s presidency truly means for our collective consciousness and 3 very big factors that are being brought forth through his time in office. This video will answer the topic this article is titled as.
Please take the time to watch and digest this, as it will answer so many questions regarding Trump and what is taking place.
