Four activists from Direct Action Everywhere, or DxE are now facing up to 60 years in prison for rescuing a dying piglet from Smithfield, an abusive factory farm. 60 years?! Yes, that is more time than many convicted child molesters, rapists and even some murderers receive. How and why is this happening? Let’s take a look.

When Lily, the rescued piglet was found she was about 1/5th the size of the other piglets and was in desperate need of some care and attention. The protestors rescued this piglet, gave her a bath, gave her a home and most importantly showed her some love and compassion. This story even made it to the New York Times as many people were moved by this heroic act performed by this activist group. The problem? Smithfield factory farms were less than amused and have now taken it upon themselves to convince the Attorney General of Utah to charge the group with burglary, theft, rioting and even a pattern of unlawful activity.

This is all very ironic, considering that the pigs in the Smithfield farm have been and continue to be tortured over and over again. They are living in completely unsafe and unsanitary conditions. These pigs do not get the chance to roam around on grass, or be free. Their fate involves lying in a metal crate without even enough room to walk around. They are meant to give birth and get fat until they are eventually slaughtered in the name of consumption.

But, it is the activists that are being charged, with 60 years at that, rather than the perpetrators of the horrible crimes that continue on day after day, year after year without gaining much attention at all from local authorities or the state government. Although animal abuse is a punishable act, little to nothing is being done to hold those accountable for the suffering of millions of animals on factory farms each year.

DxE took it upon themselves to rescue an animal in dire need and somehow now they are the ones being charged with these crimes? Not to mention the alleged crimes are a far reach from what the activists were really doing.

The piglet, Lily who was rescued by the group is being used as a pretext for stopping the group from showing you, and anyone who will watch or listen what is really going on behind the walls of the factory farm. The rescued pigs are barely mentioned in the lawsuit and more so the lawsuit is against the footage that was collected to show us what’s really going on.

What Can We Do?

As stated in the video nearly 50% of Americans support a ban on factory farms, because quite simply, Americans love animals. The fact of the matter is however, if we really loved and cared about animals, we would choose not to purchase any meat or animal products that come from factory farms. Not if we are aware of how the animals are treated on these farms at least. It is up to us to take a stand and put our money where are mouths are and either cut out, limit or make more ethical decisions in regards to animals and animal products.

It’s one thing to claim that you love animals, but an entirely different thing to show it in your actions. Why Do We Love One, But Eat The Other?

If this issue is important to you and you would like to help out, please sign the petition by clicking this LINK. Sure, one can argue that these protestors did in fact steal this piglet from the farm, but they did so in order to save its life. Do these activists really deserve 60 years in prison for this alleged crime?

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.

The US recently released its highly anticipated Pentagon UAP report, but it wasn’t much more than a 9 page rundown of what has been known for decades. Regardless, for many, what was promising was that the UFO subject was being taken seriously again – and perhaps many more scientists might get involved.

For decades many have been warning about leaving UFO disclosure in the hands of a government that likes to use crisis’ or current events to expand its defense budgets. Further, why would we suddenly expect a government, who has been lying about this subject for 70 years, to suddenly come forth with the truth? What would inspire them to suddenly change their mind?

Perhaps it’s because the search for ET is an idea who’s time has truly come. We’ve reporting on this for over 13 years, and are mongst a community of researchers who have been encouraging humanity to look at the evidence for more than 70 years. It feels like an idea that human collective consciousness is more than ready to explore.

The impact the ET question has on our individual and collective worldview has the power to truly change the way we view ourselves and the meaning of life here on earth. Think of the implications answers to this question could have on how we set up and run our society as well. Technology, culture, collaboration etc – I spoke about this more in great detail in my extended interview for Greer’s. prior film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind here.

Now, a new documentary from Dr. Steven Greer, directed by my good friend Michael Mazzola, seeks to explore what the films calls “the current government and media disinformation campaign promoting 3 big lies:”

1. We do not know what these UAPs/ UFOs are. WE DO.
2. Humans cannot make craft that can maneuver like UFOs. WE CAN and WE DO.
3. The UFOs are a threat. THEY ARE NOT.

Bold statements. Watch the film below and see what resonates most with you.
