Facebook User Banned For This E.T. Meme Mocking ‘Children In Cages’ Narrative

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A Facebook user was banned for 30 days for posting a seemingly harmless meme poking fun at the frenzy about immigrant children being separated at the border from their parents.

  • Reflect On:

    Why would Facebook choose to ban a user for such a harmless-looking meme? Is it possible that they are trying to prevent the erosion of a highly promoted (and predominantly misleading) mainstream narrative?

Jason Bassler, co-founder of the Free Thought Project, was recently banned from using Facebook for 30 days for posting a clever meme he constructed out of a screenshot from the movie ‘E.T.’ The meme appears to be a humorous rebuke of the proliferation of ‘fake’ photos being shared by mainstream media and celebrities to whip the public into a proper state of bother about immigrant children being separated at the border from their families due to the Trump Administration’s ‘Zero Tolerance’ policy.

Mainstream Frenzy

While immigration policy has been identified as a serious and multi-layered problem in the United States for decades, the issue of children being separated from their parents at the border and locked in cages is getting hyper-focus these days, at the expense of all other aspects of the immigration crisis. Donald Trump did recently address this matter in an Executive Order that stopped the separation of children and parents at the border. But the fact is that of the 12,000 immigrant children being held in the United States by the DHS, a full 10,000 of them (over 83%) arrived at the border unaccompanied.

These are children the mainstream virtually ignores. Does this mean that these children are not important or worth talking about? That’s how it would seem if you gaze at the headlines. The only thing the mainstream media wants to talk about, often through their surrogate celebrities, is the separation of child from parent.

Take this Instagram post by Jennifer Lopez, for example.

Reading the news about the separation of children from their families, I can’t help but think about my own children. I cannot fathom a world where they would be ripped from my arms, taken to a place no better than a prison far from home. I feel we will never forget this moment in time. Bearing witness to these atrocities and that’s what they are, I can say for sure, remaining silent is not an option. As a Latino, and as you know very well, a proud Bronx born Puerto Rican American, we and the people of all different races, roots, and culture have enriched this country. But the recent rhetoric and constant dismissal of what we bring to the table has to stop. This is about basic human rights and decency. If you care about children, have concern for the lack of transparency about this disastrous display, in full view to the world in general, I encourage you first to get caught up on the situation. Next, call your congressperson and demand an answer, but I also want you to remain hopeful—hold fast to hope, faith and Love. We first need to admit we have a problem before we can heal it. We cannot focus on the evil, we must push towards unity and get to a healing place. ITS ALL IN OUR HANDS. Supporting one another in these troubled times, we can remain on the right side of history: the side where children are safe and in their parents arms. Act now, call now, speak now, LOVE now. #familiesbelongtogether #lovenothate

Or this anti-Trump Instagram rant by g-easy:

I don’t understand how the fuckin president and his administration can live with themselves or even sleep at night. It’s so disgusting and fundamentally wrong what’s going on right now. Separating children from their parents and putting them in cages, in conditions that are barely livable is completely inhumane. These are HUMAN BEINGS, and point blank, the trump administration is not treating them as such. It breaks my heart to see this happening, in today’s world in our country. Is that what we are? And for the record, his wife Melania came in the country as an immigrant in the mid 90s, and worked illegally. Does he only show compassion to those who aren’t black or brown? This has to stop, and we have to take action. Go to familiesbelongtogether.org to learn more and sign a petition to take action #FuckDonaldTrump

Not Actual Photos Of Children Separated At The Border

It turns out that these photos are not at all what they pretend to be about, and have nothing to do with the separation of immigrant children from their parents. As cogently explained by news-analyst vlogger ‘an0moly’ in his video below, the first picture depicts a child who was never separated from her parents, while the second is a picture from Mosul, Iraq in 2016.

The proliferation of ‘fake’ and ‘misrepresentative’ photos that help to lend emotional support to a chosen narrative is a ploy that the mainstream media seems to be taking to a new level, and they are able to find plenty of support from puppet celebrities who have a significant reach.

Threatening Meme

 And so it is within this context that we can come to understand how this clever but innately harmless meme may have ruffled a few feathers at Facebook, since they may have thought it a threat to the anti-Trump narrative they had going on about illegal immigrants and their children being separated at the border:

Mainstream Narrative A Hit With Public

How successful has this anti-Trump narrative been that Facebook has been so desperate to preserve? Well, one sign is that a group called RAICES (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services), has been able to raise a near-record $20 million in a Facebook fundraising campaign purportedly for the purpose of reuniting immigrant children with their families. I could go on about how this fundraising success is a perfect example of mainstream brainwashing in getting people to support efforts that are not addressing the real problems we face, but I will defer to another excellent video by an0moly below, who explains it beautifully:

Our Role In All This

Hopefully, we are getting familiar with this pattern we see here, and a growing number of us have stopped being fooled by it. Problems in our world are never getting solved, not because there are no solutions, but because the powerful elite want to keep things exactly as they are. In this particular case, the current state of immigration and the ongoing gridlock in comprehensive immigration reform keeps the flow of child and human trafficking going for their nefarious purposes.

The suppression of memes like the one above that was banned from Facebook is an indication that the elite are getting more and more desperate to control the narrative, and distract people from coming into a state of awareness about child and human trafficking, and the actual efforts being made by the current administration to combat it. Continuing to take notice of and have discussions about human trafficking, as difficult and confronting as it may be, is one of the most important things that we as truth-seekers can do.

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.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

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?
