  • The Facts:

    A number of times during 'Yellow Vest' protests in France, police officers have decided to remove their helmets in support of the movement.

  • Reflect On:

    What are the implications of an awakened citizenry that includes law enforcement officials on our struggle to gain sovereignty over the political and financial elite?

Mass protests, I have come to realize, are very complicated phenomena. They can give rise to a wide swath of interpretations about their purpose and legitimacy. Their initial thrust seems to be fueled by a deep discontent, a reasonable grievance about unjustifiably oppressive activities or policies on the part of the authority.

The way in which protests are dealt with often is predicated on how well the authority can convince the general public that the protests are wrong. Now in totalitarian regimes, a brutal and deadly crackdown has historically been the solution (think Tiananmen Square). But in our so-called ‘democratic’ countries, it is not quite as simple. Absent of being able to label protesters as violent radicals who are not behaving in the interests of the nation, the authority may actually have to pay attention to the grievances of the protesters. That’s why a tried-and-true tactic of Western authority has long been to radicalize protests by instructing violent mercenaries to infiltrate the movement and steer demonstrations to run amok in order that the authority can put a violent smear across the entire campaign and legitimize a police crackdown.

But what happens if the police side with the protesters?

The Yellow Vests Movement

Sympathy from the police appears to be what’s happening in France’s Yellow Vest Movement (Mouvement des gilets jaunes), and it could be a very telling sign of things to come.

The Yellow Vests movement began with a petition posted in May 2018, but only went into action on Saturday, November 17. The movement is not only visible in the big cities, but has mobilized in rural areas as well. It started from an increase in gas prices based on Emmanuel Macron’s attempts to implement the famed carbon tax, and calls for Macron’s resignation as well.

The “yellow vests'” are known for Saturday protests, typically blocking roads and creating traffic jams. Resulting rioting and clashes in Paris has been the worst there in over a decade. The “yellow vest” was chosen as a symbol because all motorists had been required by law—since 2008—to have high-visibility vests in their vehicles when driving. As a result, reflective vests have become widely available, inexpensive, and symbolic.

Order Out Of Chaos

Of course, what do we hear about most in the Mainstream Media when it comes to legitimate protests? An initial strategy might be to disperse the focus of the message, portray it as if people have many different agendas, ‘muddy the waters’ if you will, and hope that quenches things a bit. If the movement does not die down by itself, then we inevitably hear about how violent it has become. This one is no exception.

The Yellow Vests Protests were essentially bringing a lot of awareness to righteous collective anger about the latest economic austerity measures that impacted gasoline prices for the middle class brought forward by the implementation of the carbon tax. The elite, predictably, must have made the call to ‘bring in the mercenaries’ to usher in the violence; the mainstream accordingly would focus primarily on the violence of burned cars and broken store windows.

Don’t believe it? Look at all the mainstream headlines. As usual, they are all about violence and how order will be restored (order out of chaos, ordo ab chao, the timeless strategy of the elite). Meanwhile, the actual reason that so many ordinary citizens would go to the trouble of protesting is buried somewhere in the article and given little importance. The New York Times’ ‘Macron Inspects Damage After ‘Yellow Vest’ Protests as France Weighs State of Emergency’ is a typical example.

We have to ask ourselves: would a grassroots movement of concerned law-abiding citizens (which most citizens are) motivate these ordinary citizens to set someone’s car on fire? How could destroying another citizen’s car actually help the movement? Looting and breaking store windows? Why would law-abiding citizens take their frustrations out on innocent retail vendors? Would ordinary citizens contrive to harm civilians with bombs and gas attacks?

Social Media Strikes Again

Thankfully, we have hand-held camera phones and social media to give a picture to protests the mainstream doesn’t want us to see. The mainstream wants to put a ‘protesters bad, policemen good’ on all their coverage. In the tweet below, we see two ways this illusion is broken. The first shows egregious police brutality against a protester, which only serves to rile people up in defense of the protesters; the second is an example of the heart of the protests: a grassroots group of protesters exercising their rights to gather and dissent, and a group of police officers who come to realize the righteousness of the people protesting, and who feel safe enough to take off their helmets to indicate their support.

Here is a Youtube video with a separate incident in which French police officers decide to take off their helmets in support. Around the 1:35 mark we can hear the beginning of jubilant cheers on the part of the protesters when they see that the police take off their helmets in a clear sign of respectful acknowledgment to the protesters and their fight with the government.

‘Most Cops Support Yellow Vest Protesters’

This RT article details what no Western Mainstream Media outlet would ever admit: that the majority of police agree with the movement.  Alexandre Langlois, the secretary-general of the VIGI police union, is quoted as saying the following:

“Most of us back the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests), because we will be directly affected by any rise in fuel prices. Most of us can’t live where we work, because it is either too expensive, or we would be arresting our next-door neighbors, so we drive significant distances. Our tax contributions are going up in several areas, but there are no commensurate wage rises… It is hard to accept these cruel measures.”

Aside from empathizing with the protesters, Langlois seems to indicate a growing awareness on the part of the police force in terms of their role in controlling protests, and how they might not be aligned with their higher-ups. While he doesn’t outright state that the most violent protesters are sent by the authority to create a different perception about the movement as a whole, he seems to make it clear that that the ‘radical elements’ do not represent the true nature or motivation of the protests.

Langlois agrees that the movement has been exploited by more radical elements, but says that cops are still reluctant to be sent out against the Yellow Vests, who took their name from the hi-visibility road workers’ jackets they have chosen as their symbol. “It is difficult, because in our heart we support the protesters,” said Langlois. “The assigned cops tell themselves: ‘We will again look like villains, like attack dogs for the ministry and the government.’”

While Langlois is clear that some areas, such as the heart of the French capital are volatile and dangerous arenas for demonstrations, he also blames the higher-ups for repeatedly mishandling the response. “Our colleagues on the ground have no operational freedom, they are merely following orders issued by those sitting somewhere else in police headquarters. At least once it would be right if the blame was assigned to the bosses, not those on the streets, who are doing what they can,” said Langlois.

More and more, police officers are acting from their hearts, in defiance of the orders from above. And that might be what is most troubling to the authority.

Macron Buckling

The “Yellow Vests” movement is pushing for Macron to reverse his decision to increase taxes on fuel. The President says they are necessary to combat climate change. And herein lies the quandary for Macron. He is very hesitant to give up his implementation of the carbon tax because implementing the carbon tax was the prime reason Macron was ushered into power by the elite in a rigged election.

Macron had an emergency meeting on Sunday, no doubt asking his elite puppet-masters what he should do. What came out of the meeting was a statement that Macron had asked his interior minister to prepare security forces for more protests, and he had also asked his prime minister Edouard Philippe to hold talks with political party leaders and representatives of the protesters.

There is little doubt that these planned talks between the government and representatives of the protesters have absolutely nothing to do with considering the grievances of the people of France, and have everything to do with regaining control of the situation, diffusing and dispersing the legitimate anger, and slowly manipulate things back to the main agenda of implementing the carbon tax. But with an ever-awakening citizenry that is more and more getting wise to the motivations and methods of the authority, this may not be as easily done as in times past–especially if law enforcement becomes part of the awakening citizenry.

The Takeaway

If a conscious awakening really begins to take hold amongst members of law enforcement and military in our societies, then one of the most important means the elite has used to maintain control is gone. We may see the beginnings of that happening right now, and the implications are huge. But we have to ask ourselves, is the awakening citizenry ready to take control of the situation once the elite is defeated and their crimes revealed? Have we collectively done the internal work such that we will not simply succumb to new leaders that will be replacing one form of tyranny with another? Are we really ready and able to work together in harmony as a collective and structure our society as a manifestation of our highest vision for ourselves? The idea that we all play a part in this process will become ever more clear, and our success will be predicated on the work each of us as individuals has done to become sovereign.

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?

Before you begin...

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?
