Why The ‘Blue Vests’ Movement Could Bring Protests In France To A Whole New Level

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A protest about working conditions and pay on the part of police officers in France dubbed the 'Blue Vest' protests adds a new wrinkle of complexity to where the Yellow Vests movement may go.

  • Reflect On:

    What would be the consequence of a collective awakening to higher truth on the part of a country's law enforcement officials?

As the motives and mandate of the Yellow Vests movement come more clearly into focus, and the sense of power and potential within individual citizens continues to rise, not only in France but in other countries as well, another development occurring alongside the protests has the potential to take things to a whole new level:

Police in France have repeatedly warned about fatigue and frustration seeping into the ranks in recent years and it appears the month-long and often violent yellow vest protests has pushed them over the edge.

They have already warned the government that they are at breaking point and on Wednesday they will launch their own protest movement, which has earned them the title “les gilets bleus”  – the blue vests, after the protective body gear that they wear.–France’s The Local

 Self-Interest?

It would be of particular interest to know if the general mood within the police force is one that is purely self-serving, in which they seek to improve their own living conditions without regard for the rest of the population, or if they are truly aligned with the fervor for fundamental change that has captured the popular imagination.

Police Union Alliance certainly seems more focused on the welfare of police only, as is the mandate of any workers’ union. Their main beef is the new budgetary constraints:

“This Thursday, December 20th, the National Assembly is set to adopt the 2019 budget for the security forces and in particular the police budget,” said Alliance. “This budget sees a drop of €62 million of investment in the National Police, which will mean that once again our working conditions deteriorate.”

The union went on to say: “Despite our repeated appeals to the President of the Republic to announce an emergency plan for the security forces, so far nothing has been said.”

The union called for a “black day for the police” in France on December 19th, asking officers to down their tools and picket the country’s police stations.

The union has called for the country’s police to “only respond to emergency calls” throughout the day on Wednesday, adding that if a significant effort to address their concerns was not seen from January 1st 2019, then other types of action would follow.

The Yellow Vests protest seem to be what has pushed police over the edge and put them in opposition not only with the government but also their chain of command as well. More officers in the French police force are saying they are tired of being the punching bag for Macron and his government.

Solidarity With Yellow Vests?

As stated in my previous article ‘Breaking: Watch French Police Officers Remove Their Helmets In Solidarity With The People,’ there is sympathy for the yellow vests among police officers, as noted by Alexandre Langlois, the secretary-general of the VIGI police union:

“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.”

However, the question is, when push comes to shove, will the French police attempt to establish a wholehearted solidarity with the yellow vests, or will they take the next carrot dangled in front of them by the government and continue to be their guard dogs? The answer to this question is in the minds and consciences of those very police officers. It’s hard to say what they will choose as a collective, and even more difficult to know at this stage if they will be going along with any proposals that come out of a meeting between the government and union leaders.

Thursday Update: Deal Already Done With Police

Well, isn’t that fitting. And fairly predictable. Even before I could finish this breaking article about a ‘Blue Vests’ protest, the government has caved to their demands.

The Yellow Vests protesters have been at it for weeks, in massive numbers all over France and in other countries as well, fighting an existential battle with the financial elite and its puppet governments, and very little response to their mandate is addressed, aside from Macron’s pathetic faux-humility and token economic gestures.

Meanwhile law enforcement, the line of defense that protects the elite from a justifiably fed-up populous, partially participated in a one-day work slowdown and within hours they are given everything their union leaders asked for. Here are the details from this article in The Local:

After several hours of negotiations between France’s Interior Minister Christophe Castaner and France’s three main police unions, an agreement was finally reached regarding officers’ salaries.

“We have just signed an agreement with the Minister of the Interior — an agreement on a salary increase for police officers,” Yves Lefebvre, General Secretary of the Unité-SGP police union, told the French press. “That’s what we wanted, we wanted an immediate improvement in purchasing power,” he said. “Today we got what we wanted.” Jean-Claude Delage from the Alliance union described the agreement as a “significant” step forward.

Police have long complained of exhausting hours of patrols and chronic under-investment in equipment which have stretched departments to the breaking point and taken a heavy toll on the force. The crisis has only become exacerbated by the month-long yellow vest protests and the high heightened terror alert.

The understanding reached between the government and the police unions will see an average monthly wage increase of €120 for officers who are at the beginning of their careers. There will also be a wage increase of €120 to €150 for more experienced officers.

The interior minister has also promised to pay the €275 million that the French state owes the police in unpaid overtime. Police officers in France are reportedly owed a total of 23 million hours in overtime. The figure is for extra hours worked over decades but it has ballooned in recent weeks due to the “yellow vest” protests.

 Now It’s On The Police

These developments may soon lead to very, very dangerous times in the streets of France. How will the Yellow Vests protesters feel about the police force, if the police accept these concessions from the government in return for re-establishing their antagonism to the protests? How will police officers of conscience deal with the task of beating back the legitimate demands of ordinary citizens when they mirror their own demands that the government has now acquiesced to? Will they not see the hypocrisy in striking out on ordinary citizens?

Besides governmental pressure, no doubt police officers will be pressured by their union to carry out their business as usual since the union leaders feel they have fulfilled their mandate for their members. But there is a new pressure as well: Yellow Vest protesters are more and more questioning police officers to their face, and have less regard for the excuse that ‘this is my job, these are my orders.’

Where do police officers of conscience ultimately give their allegiance? To the state they are paid by, or the population whose plight they have begun to identify with? Will there be an ideological civil war within the ranks of the police themselves? The hearts and minds of law enforcement officers might be the real battleground of this movement at the moment, and where the majority of officers end up gravitating towards might have a tremendous impact on whether or not this protest movement is going to find a satisfying resolution or become even more violent in the near term.

The Takeaway

One of the challenges the elite has had in their long rulership of the planet has been keeping a segment of the population obedient and ready to follow orders without question (think: military and police forces). When those who physically enforce the policies of the elite awaken enough to the extent that they question their authority and refuse to do what they believe is wrong, that may signify the end of elite rule on our planet.

Ex-Google Engineer Fears AI ‘Killer Robots’ Could Perpetrate Unintended Mass Atrocities

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    An ex-Google software engineer warns of the industrial development of AI in terms of the creation of 'killer robots,' which would have autonomy in deciding who to kill without the safeguard of human intervention.

  • Reflect On:

    Can we see that events such as the potential creation of 'killer robots' ultimately stem from the projection of our collective consciousness, in a way that we as awakened individuals are empowered to change course?

We have entered a time in our history in which advanced technologies based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) may become increasingly prone to unintended actions that threaten the safety and autonomy of human beings. And those of us who believe in the safety and autonomy of human beings–trust me, most at the top of the current power pyramid don’t need to become increasingly aware and vigilant of this growing threat.

The arguments for and against the unfettered development of AI and its integration into military capabilities are as follows: those in favor of the development of AI simply point to the increased efficiency and accuracy bestowed by AI applications. However, their unrestrained zeal tends to be based on a rather naive (or feigned) trust in government, corporations and military intelligence to police themselves to ensure that AI is not unleashed into the world in any way that is harmful to human individuals. The other side of the argument grounds its fundamental mistrust in current AI development on the well-documented notion that in fact our current corporate, governmental and military leaders each operate based on their own narrow agenda that give little regard for the safety and autonomy of human beings.

Nobody is arguing against the development of Artificial Intelligence as such, for application in ways that will clearly and incontestably benefit humanity. However, as always, the big money seems to be made available in support of WAR, of one group of humans having dominance and supremacy over another, rather than for applications that will benefit all of humanity and actually help to foster peace on the planet.

Ex-Google Engineer Speaks Out

Perhaps there is no way to fully prevent militaries from doing research into AI enhancements to their applications. However there seems to be one clear line of demarcation that many feel should not be crossed: giving AI programs sole authority to determine if a given individual or group of human beings should be killed.

Software engineer Laura Nolan resigned from Google last year in protest after being sent to work in 2017 on Project Maven, a project used to dramatically enhance US military drone technology, and put much more of the onus on AI to determine who and what should be bombed or shot at. She felt that her work would push forward a dangerous capability. She could see that the ability to convert military drones, for instance into autonomous non-human guided weapons, “is just a software problem these days and one that can be relatively easily solved.”

Through the protestations and resignations of brave people like Laura Nolan, Google allowed the Project Maven contract to lapse in March this year after more than 3,000 of its employees signed a petition in protest against the company’s involvement. It should be indicative to all of us that these big corporate giants do not make ethical decisions on their own, since they are fundamentally amoral, and continue to require concerned human beings to speak up and take actions in order for humanity’s interests to be considered.

Killer Robots

Since resigning, Nolan has continued her activism amidst news about the development of “killer robots,” AI machines designed to operate autonomously on the battlefield with the capacity to kill large swaths of enemy combatants. She has called for all AI killing machines not operated by humans to be banned. She joined the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots and has briefed UN diplomats in New York and Geneva over the dangers posed by autonomous weapons.

Unlike drones, which are controlled by military teams often thousands of miles away from where the flying weapon is being deployed, Nolan said killer robots have the potential to do “calamitous things that they were not originally programmed for”:

The likelihood of a disaster is in proportion to how many of these machines will be in a particular area at once. What you are looking at are possible atrocities and unlawful killings even under laws of warfare, especially if hundreds or thousands of these machines are deployed.

There could be large-scale accidents because these things will start to behave in unexpected ways. Which is why any advanced weapons systems should be subject to meaningful human control, otherwise they have to be banned because they are far too unpredictable and dangerous. (source)

Pledge From AI Researchers?

Certainly we see mainstream headlines like ‘Top AI researchers say they won’t make killer robots‘ where pledges have reportedly been made:

More than 2,600 AI researchers and engineers have signed a pledge to never create autonomous killer robots, published today by the Future of Life Institute. Signees include Elon Musk, Alphabet’s DeepMind co-founders Mustafa Suleyman, Demis Hassabis, and Shane Legg, as well as Google’s Jeff Dean, and the University of Montreal’s Yoshua Bengio.

However this does not mean that we can desert our posts and trust that corporations that could make billions of dollars from contracts to advance such automated applications will decline to pursue them if they thought they could get away with it. Indeed, it is the watchful eyes and powerful words of conscious people that has so far prevented this from occurring.

The Takeaway

Events in our world such as the emergence of autonomous ‘killer robots’ are ominous and foreboding, but we need not shrink away from this kind of news in a state of fear and resignation. If we can see, in the bigger picture, that it is ultimately a projection of our collective consciousness that brings these events into being, then we can take these events to be a trigger for each of us to determine exactly what kind of world we want to live in going forward, and have that determination clearly reflected in our thoughts, words, and actions. In this way, we participate in the larger awakening process and help to move humanity forward in the transition to a world of greater peace and harmony.

US Navy Confirms UFOs Are Real Using Two Videos of Mysterious Objects

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The US Navy has acknowledged footage showing multiple UFOs that was released a couple of years ago by the To The Stars Academy. They've recently confirmed that the videos are indeed real.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is all of this mainstream UFO disclosure happening when we've had years of secrecy? Is the mainstream establishment trying to control the narrative? Where are they going with this?

First of all, we don’t need government and military agencies to know that UFOs are real. Thousands of whistleblowers with verified credentials, as well as millions of pages of declassified documents have been released over the past several years that make one thing quite clear, UFOs are real, and there is a long history of military encounters.

We’re talking about objects that are tracked on radar, photographed, and video taped that are seen traveling at speeds and performing maneuvers that no known air-craft can mimic. These objects are constantly seen defying our known laws of aerodynamics.  I’ve written about multiple instances, there are thousands. For example, here’s an article about an incident with the Chilean Air Force, they received a radar return of a UFO equal to the size of ten or more aircraft carriers. They had visual confirmation as well.

There are objects in our atmosphere which are technically miles in advance of anything we can deploy – Lord Admiral Hill Norton, Former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee)

General Carlos Cavero told the world in 1979, “everything” has been “in a process of investigation both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world.” On a global scale, “the nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon” and there is “an international exchange of data.” (source)

A lot of mainstream disclosure has happened within the past couple of years, and the topic really attracted a lot of attention from those who were previously unaware of the reality of this phenomenon when the To The Stars Academy, headed by former rock star Tom Delonge, and his team of ex high ranking government and Department of Defence personnel obtained multiple videos from the Pentagon of these objects and released them for public viewing.

One of the biggest mouthpieces for “the establishment,”  The New York Times, admitted something that the establishment, or facets of it, have been concealing for years; UFOs are real.  The Times broke the story about the secret Pentagon program to study UFOs where the videos in this article came from, but any UFO researcher knows these programs are more in-depth, expensive, and expansive than anything that’s described here.  These programs are vast, very expensive and go much deeper than a simple Pentagon program to study UFOs.

Not long ago, A Michigan State University economist teamed up with multiple researchers, including Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development and they found trillions of unaccounted for dollars missing from housing & D.O.D. Based on my research, these programs are going towards the study of UFOs, extraterrestrials as well as an already established secret space program. Fitts makes that point as well. Everything in this area is simply deemed “classified,” receiving absolutely no oversight from Congress. They’re referred to as deep black projects that in 2008 ex-Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer described as projects that the “Commander in Chief has no idea about.”

A 1997 US Senate report described these “special access programs” as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.” (source).

The Navy Acknowledgment

In the latest news with regards to mainstream UFO disclosure, the US Navy has acknowledged the videos of UFOs that were released by TTSA. The objects seen in the three clips of declassified military footage are “unidentified aerial phenomena,” Navy spokesperson Joe Gradisher confirmed to CNN. (source)

In the footage below from 2004, sensors lock on a target as it flies before it accelerates out of the left side of the frame, too quickly for the sensors to relocate it.

 Again, they were released from TTSA via the US Government, you can see one of the three videos below. It was the first one released, you can view the other two on their Youtube channel.

What is Mainstream UFO Disclosure All About? Can We Trust It?

TTSA has done nothing but bring awareness to the fact that these objects are real. They’ve stayed away from the extraterrestrial question, but CEO Tom Delonge has always been quite open about the fact that some of these objects are indeed extraterrestrial, and that this is known.

The chief of the disclosed program at the Pentagon, and now a member of TTSA also stated on CNN that he believes we’re not alone, and that this phenomenon is evidence of that. (source)

As former Princeton physics professor and NASA astronaut Dr. Brian O’Leary once said, “there is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time.” (source)

A lot of people within the community are pointing towards the fact that government and mainstream media has been nothing but deceptive to us. This is very true, so why should we believe what they put out with regards to UFOs?

The truth is, it’s quite clear that there has been a long campaign of disinformation. In fact, there has been “an official campaign of ridicule and secrecy” with this subject (First director of the CIA, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, NY Times).  Many people have lost their lives and governments, or factions within the government and those who sit above them, have done their best to cover up this topic. It’s been covered up for many reasons, perhaps because of the new energy technology that’s involved with this subject, and the fact that the disclosure of the fact that some of these objects are not from this planet really leaves no aspect of humanity untouched.

It has huge implications and would change many things. But now, it’s all being disclosed, which is confusing people.

There are multiple theories out there, one of them is that the that the global elite are preparing for a supposed false flag alien invasion. They would use this the same way they use terrorism, to heighten national security, take more of our rights away, and actually have an excuse to weaponize space. To do this they would promote a “threat” narrative, and that this is what some of these objects represent.

Another theory is simply that they are not in charge, and that it’s simply time to disclose this reality to the human population, slowly but surely.

Another theory is that they want to simply control the narrative with this topic. The global elite are clever, and by disclosing what was and is becoming obvious to the population they then have the power of “what we say is the truth.” Furthermore, disclosing the reality officially could be used to continue its secrecy. By disclosing that UFOs are real and that “this is all we know and there is still much to find out” would be a truth within a lie. Having studied this topic for a number of years, what is known goes deep into extraterrestrials, extra dimensional beings, reverse engineering of craft and much more. It’s quite clear that a lot more is known than the just simple reality of UFOs, which represents the tip of the ice berg.

Are we seeing an effort by the global elite to simply control the narrative of what is and what isn’t? Do they want to take disclosure into their own hands and tell the people about it, in their own controlled way rather than having the lid blow off of everything?

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, UFO disclosure within the mainstream is a positive thing. That being said, we must always exercise caution and critical thinking as, most likely, the mainstream wants to control the narrative. There is a lot more credible information in the form of leaks, whistleblowers, books, and documents that go far beyond what the mainstream will ever tell us. The more the public wakes up to this reality, the more they must realize that just because something is presented by the mainstream, does not mean that it’s the be all and end all of what is known.

With all of this being said, I also believe there is still a lot of disinformation out there within the UFO community.

There is a massive shift in consciousness happening on our planet right now. We are curious, we are asking questions and we are starting to realize that there is a lot more to the story here on planet Earth that what we’ve been told or have been made to believe.

One of those realizations is that we are not alone, and that we never have been. Truth is inevitable, it will be discovered by us, not given to us. It’s time to think for ourselves.

Another Alleged Epstein & Prince Andrew Victim Comes Forward Implicating Joe Biden & “Many Others”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Recent events such as the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein seem to be causing more victims of sex trafficking who had stayed silent for so long to come out and speak.

  • Reflect On:

    Can we create a safe and open space for alleged victims of sex trafficking to speak out with confidence, and trust that our growing discernment will ensure that the truth rises to the top?

Members of the Awakening Community often wonder, aside from our personal work being done to look inside and heal, forgive, and raise our vibration, if there is a need for external actions in the world that will help move us forward in our collective journey and foster a better and more harmonious world.

Might I suggest that at this precise moment in our history, it is incumbent upon us to come together as a community to provide a safe and sacred space to those who have been victimized by the massive, coordinated global pedophilia and trafficking rings whose full scope and influence on our world we are just starting to fathom. And that means listening to what they have to say, and aspiring to use their testimony to gain a better understanding of our world and what has been happening under the cover of darkness and privilege, difficult as this may be for many of us to accept.

Women and men who have for decades lived silently in fear of being further harmed or even killed if they spoke out, now see a ray of hope in the recent convictions of members of the NXIVM cult and the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein. There is now a sense that the fundamental complicity or at least the willful ignorance about these rings at the highest levels of global law enforcement is changing, and that many of the good people in these organizations are now being empowered to investigate and prosecute such crimes. It has previously been said to me that officers wishing to pursue leads into human trafficking crimes were often dissuaded from further action and told, ‘That’s not what the taxpayers are paying you to do.’

I know of victims who are not ready to come out in public, either because they are not far enough along in their healing journey, or they still cannot fully believe that government, law enforcement, and the judiciary are now on their side. When we consider how much we have uncovered about the far-reaching complicity of powerful institutions to silence victims and protect high-level perpetrators, there is justification for these feelings.

Discernment

For those who are coming out of hiding and providing testimony, heightening our powers of discernment is critical to the process. We will not be creating a safe space if we simply believe anything we hear from anybody, for there are sure to be attempts at disinformation and manipulation for ulterior motives. At the same time, we must withhold snap judgments, and temper the application of our pet conspiracy theories so that we can focus on allowing each person to feel and be heard.

Our discernment will require us to take each testimony word by word, case by case, and ask ourselves about the motivation behind it, if the facts line up and there is consistency, and whether or not there seems to be a hidden agenda. The testimony of Christine Blasey-Ford and her allegations of attempted rape against Brett Kavanaugh in his Supreme Court nomination hearings serve as an example in which red flags were lifting up at every turn, especially in the way mainstream media unequivocally pronounced her to be credible and honest every step of the way. Her testimony could clearly be seen as having a political agenda behind it.

The Testimony Of Jessica Collins

By and large, most cases will be more subtle. One person who has recently come out with a video claiming to be a victim of Jeffrey Epstein and [Prince] Andrew Windsor certainly seems worthy of our attention. Although she does not claim to be a victim of child trafficking (she was first abducted as a student at the Catholic University of America, after she went for what she thought was a legitimate job interview), the testimony of Jessica Collins is compelling. She put a link to the video below multiple times on Twitter on September 3rd:

A look into some earlier tweets and other information reveals that Jessica’s 18-year old daughter died of Opioids in 2017, which Jessica does not believe was a suicide. In a tweet on September 3rd, she discloses that only because she believes her daughter was murdered is she speaking out. And she herself does not believe that the Department of Justice and Law Enforcement are truly attempting to prosecute these crimes at this time:

There is a lot to sift through in the testimony of Jessica Collins. I won’t go over it here but would refer you to this Before It’s News article to examine some of the more salacious claims. My purpose here is to pass on this video to our readers to share and evaluate for themselves, based on the following request made by Jessica in the video itself:

My name is Jessica Collins. I live in Virginia. Today is September 3rd, 2019. If anything happens to me it’s because this information is true and I have a lot more information about who I was trafficked to and the government people who are in the White House today.

If you could redistribute this video please save it and redistribute it. If anything happens to me at least I have this out. I have been threatened. My car was disabled by a government employee when the Jeffrey Epstein news broke.

I have been without a vehicle for 40 days. I don’t know what else to say.

Please save this video. Please redistribute. Please try and spread it. There is no way that this is going to get out there in the media. Must we the American people do the work?

The government is involved and I was trafficked for nearly 17 years. Please try to help by redistributing this, tweeting it, talking about it. I do everything that I can. Thank you for listening. Together we can get to the bottom of this and hold the criminals accountable.

Jessica Collins’ last tweet was on September 6th. There don’t seem to be any communications from her since then. Let us pray that she is safe and finds a way to tell her whole story.

The Takeaway

We have to allow everyone who comes forward as a victim of sex trafficking the chance to speak until they have been fully heard. We must have confidence that the truth will ultimately rise to the top and shine so brightly that attempts at dark deception and manipulation, clever as they may be, will no longer prevail.
