Facebook has been under fire all year as a new change to their algorithm will again take pages and businesses out of the newsfeed and replace them with more ‘friends’ posts. A move that apparently users asked for even though Facebook has provided no proof of that.

In fact, Facebook is the only one set to gain from this move as now businesses will have to pay even more to reach an audience they worked so hard to build. Further, users will no longer see any of the content they took the time and energy to say they wanted to see.

This leaves Facebook in the midst of a transition that will likely bury themselves as they are making their platform less useful to users. You see, users decided how they wanted to use Facebook when they began sharing and putting information out that they saw from brands they love. Yet, Facebook feels it knows what users want more, and is now taking that all away.

I have called this  Facebook’s start to their own downfall. They’ve chosen constant growth and profit over user experience, instead of a sustainable business model that also aligns with its users. And users can see this, in fact, they are upset that they don’t know how Facebook works nor how to control what they want to see.

Now Facebook has come under attack again as a tweet coming from the conscious mind of Jim Carrey states he will be dumping his Facebook stock and deleting his Facebook page because he feels it’s unacceptable that Facebook profited off of Russian advertisements in Facebook about the US election.

Russian Ad Buying On Facebook

Of course Jim is referring to the information that came out about Russian ad purchasing on Facebook during the 2016 US election. Facebook and Twitter had revealed that Kremlin-linked groups were buying advertisements on both social media platforms during the 2016 presidential election. The ads appeared to push voters away from Hillary Clinton and instead towards Donald Trump, Jill Stein, or Bernie Sanders.

Whether or not you agree that this made a difference in the election, which it likely did not, some are not happy about it.

It’s unclear whether or not Jim is unhappy with Trump’s election or if he more so is trying to hold Facebook accountable for its unconscious actions in allowing another country to create advertisements that could sway voter decisions, but nonetheless he has something to say.

“We must encourage more oversight by the owners of these social media platforms,” Carrey stated in a CNBC statement. “This easy access has to be more responsibly handled. What we need now are activist investors to send a message that responsible oversight is needed. What the world needs now is capitalism with a conscience.” 

Why Would Russia Do This?

If you have been following what is happening outside of mainstream news when it comes to the election, you may have noticed that the media went pretty silent about the incredible level of corruption and election manipulation Hillary and the DNC were involved in.

From a bigger picture perspective, Hillary is part of a Deep State regime that has been in power for a very long time. Obama, Bush’s, Clinton, etc. Much of the intelligence we got here at CE during the election pointed towards a divide happening within the Deep State that was pushing out the Clinton’s.

You’ll notice that the Russian ads did not pick one party over another, but instead simply pushed Clinton out. Which makes sense when you consider the divide that is taking place and the move towards ending a deeper side of the corruption that exists within politics. Sure, this is still a corrupt move, and they didn’t put a saint in power, but if you were to do the research, you’d understand Hillary was much more of a poor choice and corrupt individual than any other candidate running… by a long shot.

So based on reflection, perhaps Russia is on the side of helping to pull a piece of the Deep State out of a long time held position.

The Challenge With Media Today

But in a different sense this goes back to an entirely different thing. We must learn to become more critical in our thinking and take responsibility for ourselves and our actions. Just because we see an ad, doesn’t mean we need to be swayed by it.

In fact, that’s a big problem with much of media today. It is manipulative in that it pushes a very clear agenda on the population, yet the population en mass has not yet chosen to stay present and take the time to see through the drama to get to the facts. Even most alternative media is like this. This is an important lesson for us all.

As creators of conscious media here at Collective Evolution, we do not use emotion, anger, fear, or manipulation tactics to present information. We simply provide it for what it is, challenge users to think deeper about it and focus on a big picture understanding. This allows readers and video watchers to make up their own mind, challenge their current ways of thinking all without manipulatively trying to make it happen through fear and panic.

Now of course you may be wondering our stance on Trump. We don’t choose political sides. We understand that politics is not where we will solve human challenges. It’s a game we play that uses fear, lies, and panic to get people to believe in a illusory idea of democracy, which doesn’t truly exist.

We feel Trump is simply a step towards shaking up old regimes that have been in power for a long time, all while bringing out many of the challenges and shadows humanity has within itself surrounding, division, racism, sexism and so forth. Our full analysis on Trump’s POTUS position is here.

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?
