Be Aware: How Some Alternative News Outlets Are Hindering Truth

Published

on

We sit at one of the most important times for media ever. With the mainstream media being called ‘Fake News’ by the POTUS and with alternative media outlets getting so much attention from people around the world, things are changing a lot.

Furthermore, almost anyone can start a media outlet these days and begin sharing their thoughts and opinions about something all while gaining a great audience. This is extremely empowering and helps to get information out of the hands of those who have historically manipulated it.

But, this also means that it’s easy to jump online and start creating and distributing content without ever looking into the truth. In fact, that option has always been there, but the access is even easier.

This means as users we must be discerning with what we read and consume. We always needed to be this way to be honest, but now it goes much further. This also leads to an important fact about our time, it’s time for each of us to take full responsibility for ourselves, our lives, actions and move towards not being reliant on governance.

The challenge we face is some alternative outlets are producing fake stories that relate to very real topics which are true and need further reporting, but by producing fake viral headlines, they are making the subject look entirely false after a website like Snopes debunks it. While Snopes should also not be considered a credible source due to their alliance with mainstream thinking, it doesn’t mean everything they debunk is actually true. This whole process of producing false news narratives effectively makes people doubt subjects like ET’s, UFOs, government coverups, Wikileaks, the deep state etc.

The truth is, there are enough REAL alternative news stories out there to never have to make one up or produce fake stuff, so why do it? Hard work and time is all that comes to mind right now. It takes time and a team of people to produce factual content that is properly researched.

On the other hand, there are topics that are not yet easy to prove, but are very much worth looking at. Like for example the ET reality. We cannot confirm with absolute certainty that a specific alien being exists for example, but a journalist can show pictures, provide quotes from eye witnesses, whistleblowers and so forth and write the story in a manner that asks the reader to question and see what resonates. This is how we would produce a story with not yet verifiable facts.

Here at CE , we do our best to stay factual and accurate via a lengthy editing process. This is what it looks like:

What is Truth?

Sometimes we say truth is subjective, but I don’t tend to agree with this. Events play out, and when they do we can color it in any way we choose. That doesn’t change what played out as an event however. You see, we have been making excuses for why our emotions, bias’ and so forth get in the way of seeing the world clearly. This is an ego tactic built into the human ego that keeps us from letting go of old ideas, patterns, habits and identifications.

For example, we often get stuck looking at everything from a particular political slant. We don’t want to go back on what we may have previously believed in the past. Then we turn around and say “that’s my truth” but we full well know we are coloring that with our political slant.

Given this understanding, we have built Collective Evolution’s media strategy to look at events for what they are. We examine as much evidence as possible and then release our stories. This doesn’t mean we’re perfect and never have bias, but you won’t get a political position because we don’t take them nor buy into them. You won’t get the mainstream controlled version of a story because it cuts out many aspects of what happened in order to paint a specific picture. From us, you will get a bigger picture perspective, what we can reflect on and how we can learn and grow from what is playing out in our world. It’s media that cares about truth and the viewer -conscious media.

We Need To Identify & Stop Sharing

Now back to content.

One of the challenges we face with the ease of making a living as a media outlet online is that sometimes websites will choose to copy and paste content from other sites or simply write content based on bogus facts because it will bring traffic, i.e. revenue. Not all do this in all cases, but it’s important to discern and fact check as a viewer, and of course, read the article, not just the headline.

A viewer may see a headline and it may sound fake. For example” The Mind Control Tactics Used By Facebook – They Know More About You Than You Thinkbut it’s not. We are often simply used to seeing certain topics in the mainstream and this would not be one of them, so it sounds more outlandish but it is very real.

The key again is, if something catches your eye as a headline, read, discern, use your intuition and do some more research if need be.  Many topics can usually be verified  in about 1 – 2 minutes.

Looking at this article by Neon Nettle, a site that often posts false stories amongst true ones, you have Putin: ‘Pope Francis Works for Satan’ The quote inside the article is backed by another website called Antonius Aquinas. This site then backs its quote to a website called YourNewsWire who does not source where the quote is from.

It’s easy to verify quite quickly that even if this story were somehow true, we have no way to verify it because there is no source on the quote at all. This doesn’t make something fake 100% of the time, but it begins to beg the purpose of even writing stories like this.

Let’s take this one for example. This headline is from YourNewsWire again: Clint Eastwood: Obama ‘Worst President In Our History; He Looted America’

The claim is that Clint Eastwood made this statement about Obama, yet a simple Google search tells you that this isn’t true. Despite the fact that it’s not true, many people sharing this content simply base its truth on headlines. This might be the most prominent trend emerging on the internet today, and one that is spreading so much false information.

Perhaps there is truth to the idea that Obama may have looted America or that the decisions of his administration spent so much on war, and killed many innocent people etc. But going about the topic in this manner, doesn’t bring credibility to it. It seems to encourage people to turn away from alternative news.

Another headline from YourNewsWire: Putin To Send 3,650 Pedophiles Into Space ‘For Life.’

Once again, clearly a subject that can be checked within moments via basic searching.

In a CE podcast episode on the topic of Fake News, I brought up examples like this from these two sites and it began a public conversation about fake news with one of the founders of YourNewsWire (YNW), Sean Adl-Tabatabai. It was never my intention to challenge or damage the reputation of YNW as the conversation on the podcast was very much neutral, it simply asked people to question. Instead, the intention was to encourage a cleaning up of the content, not just for the alternative media movement but for people in general. Why produce news and information without the proper due diligence?

During the conversation I asked the question:

ME: “Do you agree or not agree that your website sometimes posts fake news? If so, do you knowingly do it?”

The response I received was

YNW: “No. Fake news to me is something that the publisher/author knowingly puts out.”

Now I understand that during the course of the conversation it would be easy for Sean to become defensive or upset at what was occurring. In his eyes, he felt as though his site was being called a fake news site, which isn’t entirely true, and he wanted to defend the reputation. So let me be clear here. I don’t believe any of the sites I have mentioned produce 100% fake news. Perhaps that is the view Snopes intends to create for them, but it was not covered this way by us. Instead, I know this site produces some stories which are false. And people share them like crazy. Does YNW know they are producing false stories? Perhaps. They didn’t seem to think so. But the very answer I received above indicated that it’s easier for the organization to state that their stories are not fake news because the writer doesn’t take the time to research them.

Hence why my passion for news and information led me to want to say something to help improve the overall site. Which I made quite clear in the podcast and our conversation. “Sean I’m with you on this. This is why I intend on holding others accountable in the same way other people have held CE accountable years ago. Some of these subjects are true, but it is meaningless and harmful to the overall movement to post stuff that is so obviously fake. And perhaps you don’t have a final check system where someone can check things over, if not, add one in. Blacklist certain authors so that their content cant go straight out before being checked. If you post stories that are truthful and then a bunch that are fake, why post the fake ones?”

What We Can Do & Final Thoughts

Quite simply. Read content. Don’t simply share it or feel like you can determine a whole story from a headline. This is important. Check into the sources of quotes, facts or other things mentioned in an article. Just because you see a link doesn’t mean it’s even going to a a credible source.

As users, it’s time to take control of media by keeping them accountable. The mainstream media misleads people or covers up information as much as alternative new does sometimes. This can be a tough pill to swallow and it may not be a popular subject. In fact, I feel people may get upset at me for simply writing an article like this. But that’s not on me. This is an important subject for us all to reflect on and the time has come to do it.

Check out our podcast on The Rise of Fake News and what that actually all means. Why was the term created? How is the mainstream media using is? Is it backfiring on the MSM? Will it help to clean up alt news?

“The Consistency Is Mind Boggling” – University Professor On Alien Abductions

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. David M Jacobs, a recently retired Professor and historian, shares the fact that those who claim to have been abducted, and there are millions, share extreme consistency with their stories, and come back with proof.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is this not addressed? As Jacob's points out, if it's not true, then we have the greatest discovery of all time with regards to neurology.

We know that the phenomenon is very, very widespread around the world. People think that this is an American phenomenon, it is not. I’ve worked with people from Africa, and Asia, and Latin-America, and Europe and so forth… All say the same thing all around the world, it does not matter where they’re from. People often ask me whether there’s any consistency in abduction accounts, the consistency is mind-boggling.

The quote above comes from Dr. David M. Jacobs, a recently retired professor of History at Temple University, from the video below. He’s one of many academics who’ve been studying the ‘alien abduction’ phenomenon for a long time. We’re talking about full-out investigations and actual case work. Himself and practically every other researcher in this field would tell you that yes, the consistency is indeed jaw-dropping. People who claim to have been abducted by intelligent extraterrestrials, or come in contact with beings, and there are millions of them all over the world, all share remarkably consistent stories.

I work with people who have MD’s, or psychiatrists, psychologists… people who are university professors, and people who have never been able to hold a job…and everybody in-between. The vast material that they talk about has never been in the public domain, without consistency there is no phenomenon, and it is the consistency that keeps coming back…People are physically missing from their normal environments when they are abducted, people come back with unusual scars on their body, fully formed scars that weren’t there before.

It’s important to make a distinction here. There are all sorts of contacts happening. There are forced abductions, we call these people abductees, then there are simply contactees. Contactees don’t experience any type of forced abduction or strange procedures that are performed on them like abductees, there is also a wealth of data showing that a lot of people have friendly, informative, and mysterious type of contact experiences as well, and there are a range of beings (which also show up with consistency in multiple experiencer accounts) that have also been reported with consistency, including human looking ones. Along with these experiences come telepathic messages, in many cases appear to warn of future destruction unless human rapidly evolves and, grows up, so to speak.

Many abductees also report a sense of remorse and empathy within some of these forced abductions, others do not.

Here’s a great example, a case that involves more than 60 school children in Zimbabwe.

Dr. Jacobs goes on to state, regarding abductions, a very interesting point

Now, let us suppose it is not happening, all those things still remain, and yet it’s not happening, there is no such thing as the abduction phenomenon. If that is the case, we have found the most important thing ever in the history of neurology, brain function, cognition… All these people are saying the same thing at their risk, this is not going to bring applause to them, that they say they’ve been abducted by aliens from outer space. High functioning people say thisnknowing full well it could destroy their careers, and they say this around the world…And it’s not happening, then what?

The mainstream world has and is currently addressing the UFO topic, but the talk of extraterrestrial visitation as one possible explanation for some of these UFO visitations has still been left out of the equation. For the latest updates on that, you can refer to this article:

The US Government Just Admitted to Recovering Materials From UFOs – Here Are The Latest Updates

All of these people, again, are not crazy. They are normal human beings, many of them who have or had no interest in the phenomenon prior. So, again, either something very important in the history of mental health is going on, or the exact opposite, and if we actually take time to examine the evidence, the answer becomes quite clear.

Some of what people report as UFOs are extraterrestrial (ET) vehicles. Some of those extraterrestrial vehicles actually have ET crews, and some of those ET crews catch and release humans.” — Dr. Don Donderi, a retired McGill University Professor of 40 years in the Department of Psychology (source)

Below is a brief account of one example that pertains to abductions, again, something different from regular contactee experience as mentioned earlier in the article. There is footage of Dr. Jacobs here as well.

Are We Being Prepared For Contact?

Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel – Roscoe Hiellenkoetter (source)

Now, with the emergence of mainstream UFO disclosure, although not really addressing the extraterrestrial question, these topics are slowly creeping into the mainstream. It appears that the process of ridicule which existed for so long, via mainstream media, movies, popular television shows and more, seems to have turned into a process of disclosure.

The topic touches all areas of humanity, including metaphysics, spirituality, not just science, technology and questions in those areas. It represents an evolution in all areas, most importantly an evolution in consciousness. It really forces us to question ourselves, and help us understand who we really are as well.

Humanity is at a crossroads, and our hesitance to accept certain realities these days is drifting, and acceptance is coming in. Our perception of reality is shifting, and that alone is creating action around the world to bring about something that can’t really be put into words.

Perhaps this is becoming more relevant at this because there is a message here for humanity, and the experiences of contactees and abductees could perhaps help us decipher that message if they haven’t already. The common theme is something we all internally know in our hearts, the golden rule, and the caretaking of our planet and life upon it.

We as humanity have an enormous amount of potential to create an experience where this type of existence can happen, where we can be free from the chains of economic slavery and allowed to grow and advance as a species. Our destiny is no doubt in the stars.

Recently we interviewed Susan Manewich about her research into this space as well. One of the many profound truths she shared was that of all the contactees they have studied, there is a strikingly similar message shared by all. Check it out below

Banned TED Talk: The Giant Ceremonial Astrological Mound Builders of Ancient North America

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Strong evidence points to the reality that giants existed on earth. Many ancient cultures recognized this. Many of these beings had great knowledge of the stars and astrology.

  • Reflect On:

    How much of our history is actually true? How much has been held back? When you begin to stretch your consciousness outside of simple everyday life as we know it, we begin to explore actual reality.

It’s truly mind-altering to contemplate history, I usually start with the fact that most of our recorded history remains in secrecy. The US Government alone, according to some historians, classifies approximately 500 million pages of documents every single year.

How can a researcher, historian, or anybody who is interested in diving into the archives of US history, for example, expect to find anything of any real substance that actually pertains to the truth?  History is written by the victors, and most major historical events are full of information and facts that don’t really show up in our secondary and post-secondary ‘educational’ textbooks. These days, no matter how much evidence and fact support a topic, if that topic and information simply defies beliefs, or offends current upheld belief systems (many of which are based on lies), then it is rejected.

We see this in all disciplines today, a great example would be the connection between consciousness and our physical material world, as demonstrated numerous times repeatedly by quantum physics. Despite the fact that we are told these rules only apply at the quantum level, there are several examples which show that, no, they can be applied at the classical level as well.  Cases of mind influencing matter have been reported throughout history and across many cultures, more specifically in regard to ‘supernormal’ abilities which include telepathy, psychokinesis, and other phenomena that lie within the realms of parapsychology. This is evident in ancient literature, from the Vedic texts and the yoga sutras to Jesus, Moses, Milarepa,  Mohammed and more. It’s also evident via declassified CIA documents, some of which you can access here.

What is going on here? Just as there is a scientific blackout in many cases, we also have historical blackouts and a modern-day blackout of information and discoveries that are made by the black budget world. A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.”

Yet we still reject these blackouts and historical facts are no different. What about the Giants of North America? Have discoveries been ‘covered-up’ simply because they don’t fit the framework of accepted knowledge? It sure seems that way, especially because you won’t see any mention of giants in our textbooks. Perhaps that’s because they don’t fit in with the supposed theory of evolution? Is this information just too paradigm shifting? Where what we once thought we knew, is not true anymore? Kind of like another, ‘the Earth is not flat’ type of moment…

Giants are found within the lore of multiple cultures, from the indigenous to the ancient past, but bones have also been discovered on numerous occasions.

“It calls up the indefinite past. When Columbus first sought this continent—when Christ suffered on the cross—when Moses led Israel through the Red-Sea—nay, even, when Adam first came from the hand of his Maker—then as now, Niagara was roaring here. The eyes of that species of extinct giants, whose bones fill the mounds of America, have gazed on Niagara, as ours do now.” – Lincoln

A discovery was made in 1883 when the Smithsonian (the United States government/military-led organization) dispatched a team of archaeologists to the South Charleston Mound. The report indicates that the team uncovered numerous giant skeletons ranging from 7 to 9 feet tall. They were decorated with heavy copper bracelets and other religious/cultural items. The report also mentioned that some of them had a skull that was of  “the compressed or flat-head type.” This would resemble similar skeletal characteristics to those found in South America and Egypt. (source)

Going back further still, in 1774 settlers found what they called “The Giant Town,” which housed several gigantic skeletons, one being an eight-foot-tall male. (source)

You can read more about that in the articles we’ve written previously about the subject, and see some examples. From New York Times articles and more, the evidence of giants is great.

The Ceremonial Astrological Mound Builders of Ancient North America

Another interesting topic I recently came across, was, just like Pyramids, and many other ‘wonders’ of the world built with remarkable mathematical precision and synchronicities, are the ancient structures in North America that’s been completely ignored by mainstream history.

Jim Vieira is a stonemason, writer, and star of History Channel’s Search for the Lost Giants had his TED talk banned. The banned TED talks are always the most fascinating, my favorite from Russel Targ, who was a physicist contracted by the CIA to create the STARGATE project, a program investigating parapsychological phenomena, where he shared everything he knows about ESP. It was banned simply because it was too controversial, similar to Vieira’s talk as well.

In one of Jim’s talks, he describes a structure, one of many which have apparently been found all over America, that goes to show just how interesting and mysterious, and advanced these beings are. It’s one of many pieces of the puzzle showing that extremely advanced, highly intelligent ancient civilizations once roamed the Earth, and many of them have been completely blacked out from history. Perhaps the ‘history makers’ wrote their own version and decided to cut out information that wouldn’t fit in with their plan to control the narrative of what is and what was.

In it, he describes “ceremonial” stone-works that have been found in New-England, these structures have been carbon dated, according to the talk, to thousands of years old, every single one of them, “but there’s a historical blackout,” according to Vieira, especially in New England.

He goes on to show a picture of the Goshen Stone chamber, one of the hundreds in New England. What’s remarkable about these structures is that the majority of them are oriented to the equinox sunrise or winter solstice sunrise.

Below is a picture he took on March 12th from the chamber:

He then goes on to say, “we are told that these are colonial root sellers.”  This one has a 10-tonne sailing, and as a stone mason, he explains how the structure itself is quite a feet, which is why he has a suspicion that they might have been built by the giants which exist in ancient lore.

Another interesting shot from the talk, this particular structure (Goshen Stone) has a stone line shaft created in the chamber which allows the Equinox sunset to come through twice a year, only on those days.

Again, he also cites lab work done which sites carbon date reading of thousands of years old. So that would completely shatter the current mainstream accepted explanation, that these are simply colonial root sellers… How crazy is that?

You can check out the full TED talk below:

The Ancients Obsession With Astrology

The evidence for intelligent ancient civilizations that have been left out of the historical record is grand, but even the ones that have not been left out show a tremendous knowledge of astrology, planets, and facts about the cosmos that we didn’t discover ourselves till only a few decades ago, like the existence of Pluto, for example.

From the indigenous all the way to ancient Sumeria, astrology has obviously played a huge key role among these societies and was extremely relevant, yet today, this topic and its importance are brushed off as pseudoscience. I personally have no doubt the movement of the cosmos and the way it affects human consciousness is something real, yet perhaps not well understood, but it’s making a comeback.

There is a lot of validity behind such concepts and beliefs, but they are brushed off today simply because we’ve been trained to believe that this type of thing is bogus, when really, it’s far from it and once understood it could be of tremendous use to humanity, especially for goodwill.
