- The Facts:
Three Ukrainian boats entering 'disputed' waters in the Kerch Strait were fired upon and captured by Russian forces last Sunday, causing an uproar over who was actually the aggressor in this situation.
- Reflect On:
Can we continue to hone our discernment in order to recognize which of these two sides is employing deception and trickery to try to strengthen their desired narrative?
A naval incident last Sunday in the Kerch Straight that separates Crimea from Russia has put Russia and the Ukraine on a collision course for conflict, and perhaps even war, as Ukranian President Peter Porshenko called for martial law to be implemented in the Ukraine for a period of 60 days.
Here is the chronology of the dramatic events as outlined by this BBC article:
- In the morning, Ukraine said it had sent two gunboats and a tug from the Black Sea port of Odessa to Mariupol in the Sea of Azov
- Ukraine’s navy then said Russian boats had tried to intercept its vessels, ramming the tug
- Russia accused Ukraine of illegally entering its territorial waters
- Russia scrambled fighter jets and helicopters as the Ukrainian vessels approached a bridge over the Kerch Strait – the only access to the Sea of Azov
- The bridge itself was blocked by a tanker
- In the evening, Ukraine said its vessels had been fired on and seized by the Russians. Six Ukrainian crew members were injured
- Russia confirmed it had used weapons to force the Ukrainian vessels to stop, saying three Ukrainians were injured
- Russia said the Ukrainian ships were in its waters illegally because Moscow had temporarily closed an area of water for shipping.
- Kiev called Russia’s actions a flagrant violation of international law, because the Black Sea is free for shipping, and Crimea belongs to Ukraine.
- Ukraine also cited a 2003 Russia-Ukraine treaty on unimpeded access to the Kerch Strait and Sea of Azov.
- It said it had informed the Russians in advance of its plan to move its ships to Mariupol – a claim denied by Russia.
- In recent weeks, two Ukrainian vessels passed through the Kerch Straight without incident.
Of note is that, according to Ukrainian forces, six Ukranian sailors were injured, but while Russia admits to using weapons to force the Ukrainian vessels to stop, they only conceded that three Ukrainians were injured. In addition, Ukranian sources claim that the tug boat that was accompanying the two Ukranian gunships was rammed into by Russia in an attempt to intercept the vessels, as evidenced in the following video from this Sun article:
OK, enough of the mainstream angle. Let’s figure out what’s really going on.
First of all, the Sun article said that ‘Ukrainian sources claim to have intercepted the video from Russian coastguards, part of the FSB’s border guard division.’
Somehow, within less than 24 hours, Ukraine had the time to intercept the video, edit it with English subtitles, and make it available to Western news sources to prove Russia’s aggression. Hmm, almost like they knew in advance that it would happen. As the article explains,
The footage shows Russian vessel Don ramming a Ukrainian warship, according to Ukraine’s interior minister Arsen Avakov. He said: “Intercepted video is taken by the RF (Russian Federation), commands heard. That will stand as proof to the international court! Aggression! Let’s stand together and anticipate reaction of friendly countries!”
Quite amazing, isn’t it, that somehow this video was actually taken in the first place (what would be the reason?), that it would feature a Russian captain (or ‘special agent’, as the Sun says) that would be using the most highly belligerent language verging on insane rage in conducting what would clearly be a sensitive international incident, and that it was magically ‘intercepted’ by ‘Ukranian sources’ and processed through Western media within 24 hours.
Or it’s a fake or doctored video to visually reinforce the ‘Russian aggression’ narrative, prepared and ready to ship off to the media as soon as the overall confrontation took place. You decide what makes more sense.
The video below, put together by Jake Morphonios of the Blackstone Intelligence Network, is an excellent, comprehensive analysis of the incident in the context of the history of the conflict over Crimea and the Kerch Strait.
Of particular note is this joint statement made by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin from November 16th, only nine days earlier, wherein the following declaration is made with regards to a new bilateral working group focused on Security and Countering Russian Aggression:
The two sides underscored the need to continue building Ukraine’s resilience in the face of Russian aggression, reaffirmed the importance of the Minsk agreements in ending Russia’s aggression, and highlighted the need to restore Ukrainian control over the Ukrainian territories temporarily occupied or controlled by Russia – Crimea and the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
Both sides decided that a robust UN-mandated international security force in the areas of Donbas controlled by Russia, including the Ukraine-Russia international border, would create the necessary security conditions for the full implementation of the Minsk Agreements. The United States reiterated its commitment to Secretary Pompeo’s July 25 Declaration on the non-recognition of Russia’s purported annexation of Crimea.
The fact is that Crimea is a highly strategic territory and Western powers still want Ukraine to continue to lay claim on it. Ignoring that Crimeans voted 96% in favor of independence from the Ukraine after Western forces staged a coup of the Ukraine and installed a pro-Western puppet government, Ukraine and the US still refuse to recognize Crimea as a part of Russia. Again, Jake Morphonios does a great job laying out the story below.
Putin Weighs In
The 23 Ukranian sailors captured by Russia have been charged with crimes. According to this RadioFreeEurope article, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov claimed that the detained Ukrainian sailors were on a secret mission. Lavrov said Russian border agents and interrogators turned up documents that “clearly show that these ships had been ordered to not inform the authorities of the Kerch Strait and to try and break into the Sea of Azov secretly.”
Vladamir Putin reiterated Russia’a accusation that the Ukrainian boats trespassed in Russian waters — a claim Kyiv has denied.
“It was organized by the president ahead of the elections,” Putin said, adding that Poroshenko “is in fifth place, ratings-wise, and therefore had to do something. It was used as a pretext to introduce martial law.” Putin claimed that the Ukrainian “military vessels intruded into Russian territorial waters and did not answer” the Russian coast guard. “What were they supposed to do?”
Perhaps Putin is on to something. Poroshenko has had a heck of a time getting enough votes to implement martial law, especially with the majority of lawmakers wanting assurances that the elections scheduled for March, which Poroshenko was far behind in, were not going to be delayed. Poroshenko had to agree to a 30-day limit for Martial Law, and it only governed the territories that were adjacent to Russia or the sea. The fact that Poroshenko is also citing a ‘secret document’ he has that outlines a planned Russian ground invasion into the Ukraine just gives further credence to the idea that everything Poroshenko is now saying and doing is part of a desperate attempt to retain power beyond the election in March 2019.
The Deep State has long been operating in the world by clandestinely taking over countries economically and politically through the installation of pro-Western puppet governments, and employing mainstream media to spin these activities as above-board, legitimate political events that we should be supportive of. The case of Ukraine is no exception, where Deep State forces within the US are working with Ukraine to try to maintain power there through the next election. Once we gain the collective discernment to see through these charades–and we are growing that discernment every time such an event hits the front pages–then such tactics will have to be completely abandoned in favor of operating truthfully and transparently.
Dogs Can Detect Lung Cancer With 97 Percent Accuracy
- The Facts:
Early detection provides the best opportunity for lung cancer survival; however, lung cancer is difficult to detect early because symptoms do not often appear until later stages. Dogs were able to help solve that issue.
- Reflect On:
Why do we use animals for experiments? Unless they are willing and have a loving home and are provided for, animals should never be used as lab rats or for scientific purposes. What makes us think we have the right to do that?
Animals are a precious gift to humanity, and we have so many lessons to learn from them. If you were an empathetic, benevolent alien looking down on planet Earth, no doubt you’d be heartbroken at and terrified of the way we treat animals. We slaughter them by the billions, destroy their homes, experiment on them, and worse. That being said, the ‘good’ side of humanity loves animals, and there are a lot of activist efforts out there that are speaking up for those who do not have a voice, not to mention the ever growing movement promoting a plant-based diet. We are making progress.
Another important point regarding animals is the fact that we know so little about them. We think we know, but the truth is we don’t know, and there is so much more to discover, especially with regards to certain abilities they may possess like clairvoyance, precognition, telepathy, and other types of extra-sensory perception that human beings may have dormant within them as well.
I recently came across a study regarding three beagles successfully showing that they are capable of identifying lung cancer by scent, which is the first step in identifying specific biomarkers for the disease. The researchers hypothesized that their abilities may lead to the development of a new type of cancer screening method that is fairly inexpensive. Although we still need more research on the factors in our environment that are causing cancer in the first place, this is still great to see.
However, it’s only great if these animals are not being used solely for the purpose of study and are living happy and healthy lives because, as you may not know, beagles are the dogs most commonly used for scientific experiments, which are cruel and inhumane. At the end of the day, animals should not be used for such purposes. They are here as our companions, as part of our human family.
These dogs were able to tell the difference between blood serum samples that were taken from patients with malignant lung cancer and health controls with, as the study points out, 97 percent accuracy. The double blind study was published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association.
Thomas Quinn, the lead author of the study and professor at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, said, “We’re using the dogs to sort through the layers of scent until we identify the tell-tale biomarkers. There is still a great deal of work ahead, but we’re making good progress.”
Again, I can’t help but wonder: Do these dogs have families? Are they being loved and cared for? Or are they simply being used for lab experiments? The thought of that is heartbreaking, and it makes me not even want to support or write about a study like this, but I couldn’t find any details about the lives of the dogs.
It sounds like they are simply ‘lab rats,’ given the description of the study, but again, we don’t know. They were led into a room with blood serum samples at nose level. Some samples came from patients with non-small cell lung cancer; others were drawn from healthy controls. After sniffing a sample, the dogs sat down to indicate a positive finding for cancer or moved on if none was detected.
“Samples from 10 donors (6 women and 4 men) were used in the testing phase. Their ages ranged from 26 to 80 years (mean, 58.2 years). The samples from female donors (mean age, 64 years) came from 3 black women, 2 white women, and 1 Hispanic woman. The samples from male donors (mean age, 49.5 years) came from 2 black men, 1 white man, and 1 man of mixed race. Canine No. 1 indicated a positive sample on 10 of the 10 cancer samples and 1 of the 40 control samples during his test runs. Canine No. 2 indicated a positive sample on 10 of the 10 cancer samples and 0 of the 40 control samples during her test runs. Canine No. 3 indicated a positive sample on 9 of the 10 cancer samples and 2 of the 40 control samples during her test runs. (From study).”
A Few Words About Cancer
I often become frustrated at the bombardment of “cancer awareness” advertisements, or when I see the Heart & Stroke Foundation serving processed meats at their fund raisers. In many cases, the companies raising money for cancer research are putting out products that are causing the problem in the first place. Why do we constantly raise money for cancer research and become so emotional and “patriotic” about ‘finding a cure’ and ‘fighting cancer’ without ever acknowledging the causes of cancer? Why do we see advertisements of cancer patients fighting cancer in order to entice us into donating? Why do people proudly fight cancer and go through conventional treatments without ever being aware of alternative, more successful and effective treatments? What is going on here?
When it comes to cancer awareness, all of us should really be tweeting and posting about environmental pesticides, electromagnetic radiation, processes foods and meat, unhealthy lifestyles, sugar, emotional baggage, trauma, stress, and several other factors that are clearly causing cancer.
Why is it that there are only a couple of accepted treatments for cancer that oncologists are legally able to recommend?
There are so many head-scratchers when it comes to cancer, and any cancer awareness efforts should be bombarded with ‘f**ck glyphosate,’ and things of that nature. That would be REAL cancer awareness.
Animals are not to be used as experiments, but I wanted to present this info simply because, as I mentioned earlier, there are so many amazing, good, positive things about them. Their abilities go far beyond what we know, and when it comes to dogs in particular, they are nothing but of service to others. If you have a dog, you know what I am talking about, and in many cases they already know things about you and your biology that you may not be aware of, unless you are really in tune with them.
Missing 411 – Examining Unexplained Disappearances In The Wilderness of North America
- The Facts:
Missing 411: The Hunted is a film that explores the strange disappearances that are happening all over the North American wilderness. Investigations into these disappearances have yielded some very strange and almost paranormal findings.
- Reflect On:
With so many missing persons cases, especially in National Parks, why doesn't the National Parks Service initiate a proper investigation? Why is there so much secrecy, hesitation and unacknowledgement surrounding this topic?
I bet you didn’t know that there is an unexplained phenomenon linked to how people are going missing in National parks in the United States. This phenomenon is actually quite common, and there are countless missing cases where absolutely no trace of the person has been found. In other cases, people’s belongings were eerily found weeks after search parties completed their work, in tidy as if people literally melted off the face of the earth – all found in areas that had been completely searched.
Yes, it’s popular National parks that are notorious for these disappearances, but despite the fact that many people have gone missing, the National Parks Service does not keep a record of missing persons.
A number of people have investigated this phenomenon, and perhaps the most prominent is David Paulides, a retired officer from the San Jose, CA, Police Department. Since retirement, he has spent the majority of his time researching missing person cases, and writing about them through several published books. Recently, he as released a film called Missing 411: The Hunted, which dives deeper into this wildly fascinating subject using specific examples and cases that they examine.
The Government Involved In Missing Persons?
Paulides does not speculate much about these missing persons, but one disturbing thought he shares is the idea that the government, or some faction of government agencies, may be hiding information regarding these people. They are denying and failing to properly acknowledge the fact that there is something truly strange and disturbing happening which is mysterious on its own.
You would think that given how often this type of thing occurs, there would be some type of public disclosure and awareness campaign.
Paulides’ interest in this topic actually came from conversations he had with off-duty park rangers. That’s how he found out that there was a plethora of disappearances in National parks without any sort of explanation. In the film, he also hints to the fact that the National Parks Service doesn’t put in enough effort with regards to investigating this type of thing.
Let’s be clear, it’s not just disappearances without a trace happening, but rather some have occurred under very weird circumstances. In the film, you see examples of park rangers showing Paulides things recurring discoveries of neatly placed clothes of those who went missing – in areas that had already been searched.
“The ranger described to me, if you were standing straight up and you just had your pants on and you melted directly into your pants… that’s what it looked like to him. The pants were laying on the ground in a very neat pile,” Paulides said.
Paulides has investigated cases not only involving adults, but also many young children vanishing instantaneously from their guardians’ sides in a short period of time, which makes them seem undeniably paranormal.
One of the places I’ve investigated myself where people have also had strange experiences regarding missing persons is a place called Brown Mountain, North Carolina. There are a number of similar overlaps to what is explored in Missing 411.

U.S. Government Has Debris/Material From UFOs Says High Ranking Government Official
- The Facts:
Luis Elizondo, a former high ranking Department of Defence official and part of the TTSA academy recently confirmed that the US government has in their possession material from a UFO craft.
- Reflect On:
Those new to this may be surprised, but for researchers in this field it's not. We have enough evidence suggesting that some of these craft are extraterrestrial, so how much does the 'government know,' what about the ET beings? Who knows what?
For those who have been into the UFOlogy subject for a very long time, all of the disclosure of UFOs within mainstream media should come as no surprise. This type of presentation from mainstream media is a complete 180 degree flip flop from years past, where what we saw mostly was shaming and ridiculing of the subject. Despite the fact that “everything” seems to be in a “process of investigation both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world” (General Carlos Castro Cavero, 1979, source), in the past, what we saw was “an official campaign of ridicule and secrecy,” as Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter told the New York Times decades ago. (source)
So, why all of the serious mainstream attention all of a sudden? Could there be some sort of deception planned? We must always think critically about any topic that the mainstream chooses to cover, and how they cover it. We must do so because, since the inception of Operation Mockingbird, a US government program headed by the CIA to control the perception of the masses through mainstream media, multiple award-winning mainstream media journalists have come out and ‘blown the whistle,’ claiming that these outlets are still mouthpieces for intelligence agencies, governments, corporations, and elitist groups. You can see some examples and read more about that here. We’ve been spoon-fed lies for years, so why would it be any different with the topic of UFOs?
The point I’d like to hammer home, however, is that we are dealing with a very real phenomenon. And that is made evident by the amount of witness testimonies, video and photo proof, concealment of information, and ridicule from media that we’ve seen for decades. Just like 9/11 was real, and just like war is real, the explanations behind these events in history always seem to be manipulated for some sort of ulterior motive. That’s important to keep in mind here. Are they going to try and spin a very real phenomenon into some sort of threat?
When it comes to this topic, it leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. From science to technology and much more, everything changes when the masses are confronted with the realization that we are not alone, and that we have been visited. There are many who, what, where, why and when’s to be answered, and these answers, I assure you, will not come from mainstream media. But right now, it seems we are in the age of disclosure, as the media is finally acknowledging that these things are real.
Not only are they real, but as Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell once said, “yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered.” You can view a clip of him saying that here.
Having been a UFO researcher for a very long time, coming across information suggesting that crash retrieval programs are real is nothing new. But to have something like this leak out into the mainstream is quite significant, and this happened recently on Fox News when Louis Elizondo was interviewed by Tucker Carlson. Elizondo is a career intelligence officer whose experience includes working with the U.S. Army, the Department of Defense, the National Counterintelligence Executive, and the Director of National Intelligence.
He was also the director of the Pentagon’s AATIP program, which stands for the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. This program was recently disclosed by the Pentagon as a program to study UFOs. I can tell you, it’s not the only program related to UFOs, and these programs could be taking in trillions of dollars. But AATIP was the program that was disclosed and blasted out by mainstream media not long ago.
On May 31st, Carlson asked him: “Do you believe, based on your decade of serving in the US government on this question, that the US government has in its possession any material from one of these aircrafts?
Elizondo replied: “I do. Yes.”
Carlson then asked: “You think the US government has debris from a UFO in its possession right now?”
Elizondo replied: “Unfortunately, Tucker, I really have to be careful of my NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement), I really can’t go into a lot more detail than that.”
Again, I am sharing this because it’s going mainstream. I’ve written about extraterrestrial technology before.
You can view a clip of this exchange from Fox News here.
A Little More Information About Supposed UFO technology
The most recent information making its way around the UFO community comes in the form of a recently leaked document, which includes notes taken by legendary scientist Dr. Eric Davis during a meeting he had with Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson, former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, regarding extraterrestrial space crafts. This meeting concerned a discussion Wilson had with Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, which Mitchell publicly confirmed a few years ago. This is interesting because this leaked document just came out a few months ago.
You can view those documents and read more about that story, and see that clip of Edgar Mitchell confirming the meeting, here. It’s a really good one illustrating how this topic goes well beyond the government.
Dr. Davis is a very well-known scientist and quite the legend. For many years, he was a member of the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (owned by Robert Bigelow) and was the Chief Science Officer of EarthTech Int’l, Inc. and the Institute for Advanced Studies in Austin, Texas. He is now the Owner/Chief Executive/Chief Scientist of Warp Drive Metrics, which consults and contracts for the Department of Defense. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Early Universe, Cosmology and Strings Group at the Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics & Engineering Research at Baylor University in Waco, TX.
The leaked notes from Davis expose the fact that the U.S. Government has in its possession UFO technology that was not made by humans, but by extraterrestrial beings from another planet.
Davis also recently made remarks on the comments made by Elizondo in his interview with Tucker Carlson, stating that,
“Luis Elizondo’s very brief answer to Tucker Carlson’s question about whether the US government is in possession of recovered crashed and landed UFO technology hardware is 1,000 % accurate. My national security NDAs prevent me from adding any further comment on this.”
The source for this quote comes from a very well-known researcher in the field, James Iandoli, who reached out to Davis after his comments on Fox and posted the response on his twitter account.
When talking about the crash retrieval of UFOs, I always like to quote former Canadian Defence Minister, Paul Hellyer, when he said that the protocol is to “shoot first and ask questions after.”
It’s not just the U.S. government either, this is probably something multiple nations have within their possession.
Dr. David Clarke is an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in England. He was also the curator for The National Archives UFO project from 2008–13, and regularly comments in national and international media on UFOs.
These documents reveal how the RAF expressed great interest in finding UFOs to help come up with new and innovative ways to become their enemies during the Cold War. Apparently, they were gathering evidence that other nations had collected this technology.
You can read more about that story here.
A classic example would be the CIA keeping tabs on developments in Germany, as explained in this document, which looked into “a German news paper” that “recently published an interview with George Klein, famous engineer and aircraft expert, describing the experimental construction of ‘flying saucers’ carried out by him from 1941 to 1945.”
Here’s another document that goes on to mention an experiment described by Klein:
The “flying saucer” reached an altitude of 12,400 meters within 3 minutes and a speed of 2,200 kilometers per hour. Klein emphasized that in accordance with German plans, the speed of these “saucers” would reach 4,000 kilometers per hour. One difficulty, according to Klein, was the problem of obtaining the materials to be used for the construction of the “saucers,” but even this had been solved by German engineers toward the end of 1945, and construction on the objects was scheduled to begin, Klein added.
You can read more about that here.
There are too many examples, it’s not just limited to the Roswell incident. Here’s an article I wrote recently about another story regarding a crashed extraterrestrial craft that exists within the lore of UFOlogy:
The truth is literally out there.
UFO and extraterrestrial visitation isn’t a bad thing, as it does not seem to be ‘deceptive.’ It is, however, a very real reality. The only plausible possibility for any ‘deception’ to occur would be with regards to the official explanation of ‘them,’ why they are here and if they represent some sort of threat or not. The fact that multiple powerful people and the governments they seem to puppeteer have been trying desperately to keep a lid on this information for a very long time is a hint to that.
How much do governments, and those who sit above them, really know about UFOs and extraterrestrials, anyways?
