In Brief

  • The Facts:

    News browser extension NewsGuard promises to help readers pick out fake news. However, NewsGuard is funded and run by individuals tied to the CFR, Atlantic Council and other prominent elite figures.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we seeing a push for over-governance when it comes to even basic things like news and information? Is it time we take responsibility for our lives? Are we seeing a desperate elite losing even more control over the narrative within the media?

A new browser extension app called NewsGuard promises to give readers better insight into the credibility of news sites by providing them with a red, yellow or green badge as visitors explore content. All you have to do is install it on your website browser and you will find out how websites are rated based on numerous categories. You will also see a ‘Nutrition Label’ that was developed by NewsGuard’s ‘watchdog SWAT team’ so readers can understand whether or not a site is trustworthy… well, that’s what NewsGuard claims.

This seems similar to Facebook’s attempt to stop ‘fake news’ by working with websites like Snopes who generally use mainstream media stories to ‘debunk’ alternative viewpoints that are presented on independent media websites. Ironically, Snopes has a perfect rating from NewsGuard.

NewsGuard (NewsGuard Technologies) describes themselves as a news rating agency, but if you look closer at their ownership, board of directors, and current ratings of websites, you get a very different picture as to what the purpose of NewsGuard truly is.

NewsGuard gives CNN a perfect score on its ‘Nutrition Label.’

According to its website, NewsGuard has already rated more than 2,000 news and information websites. Future plans include further rankings as well as eventually reviewing “the 7,500 most-read news and information websites in the U.S.—about 98 percent of news and information people read and share online” in the United States in English.

Before we delve into the more important details of what’s going on here, let’s ask the big question…

Is Fake News A Problem?

As an owner of an independent media website and having been in the field for 10 years, I have had ample opportunity to observe the changes and growth within the field of independent media. I witnessed and was part of what is often referred to as the ‘golden era’ of independent media growth, where Facebook’s generous algorithm in 2012, 2013, 2014 and even 2015 allowed websites to generate traffic from tens of millions of visitors via the platform’s ‘page’ feature. Since then, Facebook has cracked down heavily on overall reach, cutting revenue to most alternative media sites by some 70% or 80%, including CE.

During that gold rush, I was often the voice of reason amongst alternative media owners and admins, pledging that we should have a set of standards, avoid copy-pasting content from other websites, and being sure to fact check everything before publishing. Some news websites stuck to these axioms and are still around today. Others can’t say the same and have found themselves without a network or website. Was it entirely because of poor journalism, copying content, and not checking the facts? No, there was an obvious Facebook purge that recently took place to shut out certain voices, and in my opinion, you open a door for problems when you operate without the obvious, necessary tactics for producing quality content.

One example I often refer to, and have spoken to the admin of numerous times, is YourNewsWire.com, which branched off and created Newspunch.com. Both sites have, and still do, produce fake stories, and to this day the owners still claim they didn’t know their stories were fake. I cannot say with certainty that they know they are fake now, but it tells me proper journalism is not being done as many stories can be debunked within 1 minute of researching. I don’t believe the owners have a bad heart and are trying to create problems by misleading people, I simply feel that quality journalism is not even being attempted.

To this day, many viewers and prominent figures around the movement share content from these websites because the headlines sound like they support certain facts or narratives, when in reality they are simply false stories.

Given that, is fake news out there? Yes, I do think there is some fake news that is not coming from the mainstream. But it would be irresponsible to not tell you that fake news comes from within mainstream media as well.

People often chuckle when Trump calls CNN “fake news,” but he is telling the truth. CNN has been caught on multiple occasions spreading fake stories, which they later have had to retract. Some of their journalists have even resigned as a result. This trend can be seen throughout other mainstream media outlets as well. Quite often I point to the fact that any news outlet that leans to a political side is, in fact, misleading readers in some way as they are filtering facts, tone and agendas through their own political lens. This begs the question: Why do we harp on fake news but overlook the manipulation that comes from political bias in media?

Coming back to NewsGuard here, many people see the app as increasing convenience for readers, whereby they can simply look at the badge to determine if a website is legit, saving them time on having to research content themselves. Problems arise when you look at who is making these decisions and realize that this is promoting the idea that humans require governance and ‘parents’ to look out for and take care of them. If we were popularizing a culture of self-responsibility, we would never have things like this, nor would we accept the implementation of them.

We have long covered why the agenda against fake news grew so rapidly following the 2016 election, and it isn’t so we can clean up the internet and keep people informed. Thankfully, many people are not falling for the ‘fake news’ bait and are questioning the mainstream now more than ever, as proven by the significant drop in approval ratings.

NewsGuard gives RT News a failing ranking for allegedly posting fake stories. They call it Russian Propaganda.

NewsGuard also gives ZeroHedge a full on failing ranking for every reason.

Note that in both examples above, the NewsGuard app continues to push Russia as being this imaginary enemy of the United States. This is simply a propaganda tool that has been used for decades by the US elite to manipulate its public into supporting and accepting everything from war to censorship. CNN, featured above, also happens to be one of the outlets continually pushing the factless Russian intervention narrative of the 2016 presidential election. This has long been debunked.

Who Owns It?

NewsGuard’s CEOs and board of directors should tell you a lot about what is truly going on here.

First let’s look at CEOs Steven Brill and Louis Gordon Crovitz. As MintPressNews aptly pointed out:

Brill is a long-time journalist — published in TIME and The New Yorker, among others — who most recently founded the Yale Journalism Initiative, which aims to encourage Yale students who “aspire to contribute to democracy in the United States and around the world” to become journalists at top U.S. and international media organizations. He first teamed up with Crovitz in 2009 to create Journalism Online, which sought to make the online presence of top American newspapers and other publishers profitable, and was also the CEO of the company that partnered up with the TSA to offer “registered” travelers the ability to move more quickly through airport security — for a price, of course.

While Brill’s past does not in itself raise red flags, Crovitz — his partner in founding Journalism Online, then Press+, and now Newsguard — is the last person one would expect to find promoting any legitimate effort to “restore trust and accountability” in journalism. In the early 1980s. Crovitz held a number of positions at Dow Jones and at the Wall Street Journal, eventually becoming executive vice president of the former and the publisher of the latter before both were sold to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp in 2007. He is also a board member of Business Insider, which has received over $30 million from Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos in recent years.

Corvitz also happens to be a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR.) Many CE readers are well aware of the fact that the CFR is a deep state connected institution and one of the most powerful in the world, but for those who are not yet familiar, you can learn more here.

The advisory board is just as concerning when you consider the agenda of NewsGuard:

Tom Ridge, the first Secretary of Homeland Security under George W. Bush and Ret.

General Michael Hayden, a former CIA director, a former NSA director and principal at the Chertoff Group, a security consultancy seeking to “advise corporate clients and governments, including foreign governments” on security matters that was co-founded by former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, who also currently serves as the board chairman of major weapons manufacturer BAE systems.

Richard Stengel, former editor of Time magazine, a “distinguished fellow” at the Atlantic Council and Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy under President Barack Obama. We reported on how the Atlantic Council is the group that is pushing for Facebook censorship. With Richard in place, the clear ties between controlling content on social media is also seen in this new app.

Don Baer, former White House communications director and advisor to Bill Clinton. He is also the current chairman of both PBS and the influential PR firm Burson Cohn & Wolfe.

Elise Jordan, former communications director for the National Security Council and former speech-writer for Condoleezza Rice.

The funding for NewsGuard is also quite intriguing and further reveals what the agenda here is and who stands to benefit from a controlled media. One of the top funders is a company called Publicis Group. In 2018, some of its top clients included pharmaceutical giants Eli Lilly, Merck, Pfizer and Bayer/Monsanto as well as Starbucks, Procter & Gamble, McDonalds, Kraft Heinz, Burger King, and the governments of Australia and Saudi Arabia. As is common with conflict of interest, what happens when independent websites accurately report on the shady dealings of these companies? Will the pressure from Publicis Group and its clients push for bad rankings for independent media websites?

Other funders include the Blue Haven Initiative, which is the venture capital “impact investment” fund of one of the top 10 wealthiest families in the U.S, the Pritzker family. They also happened to be the second largest contributor to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

John McCarter, a long-time executive at U.S. government contractor Booz Allen Hamilton.

Thomas Glocer, former CEO of Reuters and a member of the boards of pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co., financial behemoth Morgan Stanley, and the Council on Foreign Relations. He is also a member of the Atlantic Council’s International Advisory Board. It’s important to note that this is another Atlantic Council link, as you will recall they are behind the censorship push on social media.

Through these elite and powerful individuals, Newsguard has raised $6 million to begin its ranking efforts as of March 2018. Revenues and financial information have not been made public, regardless of the fact that NewsGuard requires websites to disclose this information to them if they want a perfect ranking in that category. This is seen in Newsguard’s United States Securities and Exchange Commission Form D filed on March 5, 2018, stating that the company “declined to disclose” the size of its total revenue.

How Does This Affect You?

In the ongoing effort to censor dissenting or critical thinking voices, powerful elite institutions and companies are creating a confusing landscape for people to discern truth. As more independent media voices bring forth facts that help people make sense of the reality around them, efforts to have people feel stupid or wrong for looking at these websites have increased. It has also made conversations and debates amongst people nearly impossible to have as people who often bring up alternative opinions and facts are simply silenced as having read ‘fake news.’

This is a time where tools such as this are the complete opposite of where we need to go. Now more than ever, taking responsibility for ourselves and our lives is key as the age of over-governance continues to consume much of popular culture. At this time, we do see much of this happening through the ‘left’, as poorly thought out demands and calls for government intervention backed by false facts and manipulation from the mainstream media have left people misinformed.

This isn’t to say this is about left vs. right as much as it is to simply point out that we must, no matter who we are, begin questioning our reality and stop jumping on the bandwagon of the latest meme or viral late night news clip. It has become too easy for manipulative media, both in mainstream and alternative, to run around people’s perceptions simply because we are opposed to thinking deeper about issues. This is what we must do.

The Takeaway

Many things that are happening in our world are providing a deeper opportunity for us to explore what our current state of awareness and consciousness is creating in terms of culture and societal structures. To many, seeing these desperate attempts from elite institutions actually represents an opportunity to further expose the truth of deep state control and manipulation as it reveals the true nature of what’s going on.

In essence, these crackdowns and events only further awaken a consciousness that is opening up and shifting. So while it may be tempting to fall into ideas that we are in chaos and our world is going down, also bear witness to how many are actually awakening because of all of this turmoil. Remember, the deep state and elite play whatever role they need to play to continue to challenge us to awaken from a bigger picture perspective.

Getting caught up in the fight and anger only continues to perpetuate their world. Sit back, observe, see the greater picture, continue to help others see the truth, and work to stay aligned with your heart and authentic self as we navigate through these fascinating times.

Footage of Alleged UFO Filmed In Pordenone, Italy Shows Lighting Fast Departure

CE Staff Writer 5 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are a number of pictures and videos of UFOs out there, but only some are 'confirmed' as real. Other sightings like this one from Pordenone, Italy are intriguing, and we may not want to wait for government to tell us it's OK to consider it.

  • Reflect On:

    What are the implications of waiting on government and intelligence agencies, who have long covered up this subject, to tell us which sightings are real and which are not? Why are they the authority?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

As many of you reading this probably already know, the Pentagon recently confirmed a video of multiple triangle shaped UFOs. According to the Pentagon, this video was taken by Navy personnel, and it’s authentic. They do not provide an explanation of the phenomenon seen in the video however.

Many UFO skeptics, and UFO researchers who are not skeptics have responded, claiming that the footage may be fake but fail to address the why they came to that belief. Perhaps some feel the Pentagon is lying to the public, claiming that their footage is authentic when it really isn’t. But what would be the purpose of that? This is not a bad thought to have. This would suggest that Pentagon may be deceiving the masses about the reality of the UFO phenomenon not only with this footage, but also with three previous videos filmed by Navy pilots released a few years ago, which have also been confirmed as “real” by the Pentagon.

On top of this, one has to acknowledge the fact that the UFO phenomenon has been ridiculed by government and mainstream media for a number of years. It’s been chucked into the “conspiracy” bucket many times, so why all of a sudden are they giving all of this legitimacy to it? It’s a complicated topic, one that is known to be plagued with government agencies spreading disinformation about what seems to be a very real phenomenon.

Having researched this topic for more than 15 years, and having a few “UFO” experiences myself, I am no doubt convinced of the reality of the phenomenon. I recognized many years ago that there is more evidence for the reality of these unidentified flying objects, now known within the mainstream as Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAPs), than there is for many things society accepts as fact. It was quite clear when UFOs were considered a conspiracy theory that they were real, there was a lot of evidence suggesting it. The phenomenon has actually been documented for thousands of years in various forms. Today, it comes in the form of pictures, video footage, high ranking and civilian witness testimony, radar tracking data and more. A few hundred years ago and in antiquity it came in the form of incidents documented within the printing press and artwork, as well as stories passed on orally.

All this being said, I do not believe mainstream media and government are reliable sources of information, as there are a number of examples of perception manipulation when it comes to various global issues, why should UFOs be any different? Will they take this, in my opinion very real phenomenon and try and control the masses perception about it? We shall see. You can read more about that discussion here.

The main point is, why does something have to be shared by mainstream media for it to become legitimate? Why does certain information and pieces of evidence have to come from these “official” sources?” This is a great example of how governments and mainstream media have such a large stranglehold over the perception of the masses. The pictures and videos released by various governments as of late are not the only examples. There are probably thousands of intriguing pieces of footage out there, although not verified by any government or mainstream media sources, they have not been debunked. Sure, many of them may be fake, many of them may be real,  but they are no doubt interesting to look at and speculate.

The Footage: The footage below comes from an unknown source, apparently from Italy. It seems be quite old judging by the quality, and it was posted on YouTube in 2008.  It could very well be fake, again, you never know these days. If anybody has any information about this footage, whether it has been “debunked” or not,  I would love to hear from you.

Here is a clip of the same footage on what appears to be a news broadcast about the incident. Some of the footage in this link appears to be slightly more clear. In it we see Silvano Ferronato, a popular UFO researcher in Italy, sharing his opinion. The footage must have caused quite a stir in order for it to get this type of media coverage, but again, there seems to be very little information about it at all, and like so many others, it’s impossible to claim whether it’s real or fake. It does come from what appears to be at least 25 years ago, I am not sure what the capability of ” CGI” technology was back then.

The Takeaway: As I’ve said before, this topic is very complex, and one we’ve written it about since our inception in 2009. It touches on all aspects of humanity, and has the potential to shift human consciousness. This topic is pushing us to question what we think we know about our world, ourselves, the cosmos, and the overall nature of reality. Our curiosity is heightened like never before, and as always, we must do our best to avoid having our perception of this phenomenon given to us by sources that may not have our best interests at heart. Independent research and investigation is the way to go if you are curious about it.

Collective Evolution has been covering this topic since 2009, if you’re interested in going through our article archive, you can do so here.

Are UFOs or UAPs Being Used To Usher In A ‘New World Order’?

CE Staff Writer 9 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Many out there seeking truth seem to believe that the UFO phenomenon is fake, a deception being used by the "powers that be" to usher in a New World Order.

  • Reflect On:

    Does mainstream culture and government engage in misinformation and perception manipulation of real phenomenon? Yes. But not all the time. So where do UFOs fit into this question?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

A picture above, taken through the window of a laboratory by a U.S. coastguard, shows four unidentified flying objects as bright lights in the sky, in Salem, Mass. on Aug. 3, 1952

Many of you reading this are probably well aware of the fact that mainstream UFO disclosure is taking off, and has been taking off over the past couple of years. Major media outlets like the New York Times and CNN have covered the topic with extreme legitimacy, and given the fact that much of the public relies on these outlets for information, they are now becoming aware of the fact that there are objects in our atmosphere performing maneuvers that no known man made piece of machinery can.

This seems strange to many, however, every time we (Collective Evolution) post an article, there is no shortage of comments stating that all of this is some sort of deception. That either the global elite are staging sightings using some sort of advanced technology in order to prepare for some sort of false flag alien invasion, or that governments are working with malevolent extraterrestrials to do so, both options seem to be for the same purpose which would be to help usher in the “New World Order.” These are the claims.

If anything, based on my research these objects are very real, there is not much evidence that they represent a malevolent force, and that governments and mainstream media may twist our perception of the phenomenon to help bring about aspects of what some call “The New World Order.”

The idea of a “New World Order” has been a common theme within multiple subjects. In essence, the idea of a New World Order is that there is a conspiracy to create a new totalitarian world government that would not benefit people as a whole. It includes the rollout of measures under the guise of goodwill to combat “problems” our world is facing. Proponents of the New World Order theory believe that many of these problems, like climate change and COVID, are manufactured and/or used to justify more surveillance. It also includes a digital world armed with more tracking, surveillance, and the acquisition of data from all citizens, as well as the rollout of various laws and reforms that continually lead us to a world where many of our rights and freedoms are stripped from us. Again, all of this under the guise of goodwill and for “our protection.”

With the current COVID ‘crisis’, many believe “New World Order” has been replaced with “The Great Reset.” (You can read more about The Great Reset here). Right now rights and freedoms that we once enjoyed are not accessible to many, and luxuries like travel and attending public entertainment venues may require a vaccine. These, and many more are all aspects of this New World Order according to many.

There’s no doubt in my mind that issues like pandemics, climate change, geopolitical issues, and the “war on terror” have been used, perpetuated, and manufactured in some sense by those who wish to propose the solution that benefits them the most. There is, in my opinion, an abundance of evidence that supports these feelings and we’ve written about them for more than a decade here at Collective Evolution.

I do believe there has been, and continues to be, an ongoing push for a state of fear, a world of chaos that requires “big brother” to step in and give us a solution. That solution seems to be a world where yes, many of our rights and freedoms are taken away.

Where UFOs Come In

So what about the UFO phenomenon? Do I believe it’s being used to bring about a New World Order? To be honest, I am not quite sure. But just as I believe terrorism, COVID, geopolitical issues and much more are all being used by the political and financial elite to gain more profit and control over the human race, I do believe it’s a possibility.

I do not, however, believe the phenomenon is manufactured, and this is where critical thinking and discernment comes into play. Unlike other issues like terrorism, climate change, and more, UFOs were ridiculed for decades and deemed a “conspiracy theory.” The very first director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, admitted to a long campaign of “ridicule and secrecy” behind the topic.

But you don’t need an admittance of ridicule. Anybody who has studied the UFO subject in-depth can easily see that the subject has been ridiculed and thrown into the conspiracy theory bucket for years. So my question for all of those who believe this is some sort of fake deception is, why would so much time and resources be spent on ridiculing the subject in the past, claiming all leaks and footage of UFOs are fake, and that those who believe in them are nuts? Why would they use mainstream media networks, famed talk shows, and more to completely ridicule the idea that these objects are real if they wanted to convince the entire population that they are indeed real? It just doesn’t make any sense to me and it points to a more complex situation.

During these times, a number of researchers in the field, including myself, were well aware of the reality of the phenomenon despite this massive ridicule in the time where they were considered a “conspiracy theory.” Big media and government using the term “conspiracy theory” has always been used to ridicule and silence dissenters of officially established opinion or “fact.”

The point is, not everything mainstream media presents is deception or fake. Take 9/11, for example, the buildings actually did collapse, that wasn’t fake. What seemed to be a potential deception was the perception and explanations given to us by mainstream media, and sure, the event itself may have been orchestrated by those who stood to benefit off of it – a topic we’ve inquired about in depth.

Another great example would be COVID vaccines, or vaccines in general, any conversation that paints vaccines in a questionable light is being deemed a “conspiracy theory” by many people, despite the fact that there are a number of scientists, doctors and peer-reviewed research that have raised cause for concern.

If this was some sort of holographic type of deception phenomenon, then why have UFOs been documented in antiquity for thousands of years? You can find a few examples here, but there are many.

When it comes to the UFO phenomenon, I do believe there are people out there, as with all other issues, that would like to use this phenomenon and shape the masses perception of it. I do believe there is a possibility to present the phenomenon as a threat, which is concerning given the fact that these objects do not represent this narrative at all.  The U.S. Department of Defense’s “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force” even states the following:

The Department of Defense established the UAPTF to improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon). The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security.

Again, in no way do these objects represent a threat, and there is no reason to assume this. Granted, that doesn’t mean they don’t either. You can read more in depth as to why I believe this is clear, here.

THIS is where I believe the deception is, I think it’s quite irrational to assume that all of the UFO activity we see is some sort of fake deception. This perspective lacks critical thinking and more importantly, lacks any evidence as well. The idea that there are only malevolent beings working with governments to enslave humanity also goes against a wealth of information and data that’s been collected by researchers over the years.

It’s easy to read a book, like “Behold A Pale Horse” where one man makes a claim, but we mustn’t simply look at information that complies with what we believe. This is a topic that is quite in-depth and requires a lot of examination. Information has to be collected and synthesized amongst the collective, not made into a belief system. This type of thinking is rampant in the alternative community which is in part why we put together a course of overcoming bias & improving critical thinking as we are in a time where we have to improve the way we discern information.

I think there’s one thing we can all agree on, and that’s the fact that mainstream media and government cannot be blindly trusted nor relied upon for any accurate information on a topic. That doesn’t mean every single topic they address is fake. Government and mainstream media have largely become tools of perception manipulation, meaning a lot of the time they take real issues, events and phenomenon and attempt to paint the masses perception around it. It’s likely a mix of agenda and culture that drives this.

This article is indicative of a blog post, one where I simply “rant” and share my feelings. I go into a deeper discussion in this article for those of you who are interested: Is Mainstream “UFO Disclosure” A “Psyop” For A “False Flag” Alien Invasion? – I Doubt It

If you want to access all of our articles about the phenomenon, you can do so here.

Within the “truth movement”, there is still an inability to decipher and have appropriate conversations about what is and what isn’t. Many “conspiracies,” are and have been proven to be true, but at the same time “conspiracies within conspiracies” have developed without any appropriate sources or evidence to back them up. This gives those within the “mainstream” the ability to label all those within the “truth” movement and discredit them, quite easily.

A lot of the time with this subject, narratives are created out of thin air with absolutely no evidence at all to back them. Speculation is OK and necessary, but we have to be careful pushing a narrative as truth, especially if we are trying to reach those “within” the mainstream. We mustn’t forget the importance of evidence, or the ability to speculate based on a certain set of evidence and data or something to support our claims that goes beyond simple speculation.

UFO Crash Recoveries: A Classified Corporate Gold Rush

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    UFOs are being disclosed within the mainstream, have governments around the world "captured" any of this type of technology? Are there people who stand to profit off of it instead of using it to benefit humanity?

  • Reflect On:

    What are the implications of the idea that we are being visited and have been visited for a very long time?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

The picture you see above comes from a series of photographs that have been confirmed authentic by the Pentagon.

Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), now known as Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAPs) within the mainstream, is arguably one of the most popular subjects on the minds of people all over the globe. “Mainstream” coverage of the phenomenon lending a large amount of legitimacy to the topic over the past few years via outlets like the New York Times and CNN, for example is now commonplace. U.S. intelligence agencies are also expected to release even more information about what they know about the phenomenon within the next couple of months, but based on my experience, humanity may never get close to the entire sphere of what governments and black budget programs have uncovered about the phenomenon over the past several decades that they’ve been studying it.

I do not believe this topic is for governments to disclose, but rather the citizenry to investigate for themselves. If we continue to rely on governments as well as mainstream media for truth, we most likely will always be deceived in some way shape or form. Perhaps I’m wrong.

It is quite concerning that a controversial topic like UFOs, which were for years considered to be a “conspiracy theory” despite the fact that there was more evidence for the phenomenon than much of what we accept as fact today, have to be presented in a legitimate way via mainstream media outlets for the masses to accept and become aware of their reality. It’s concerning because it goes to show how much mainstream media, which has always had close ties to large corporations, governments and intelligence agencies, influences the perception of the masses. This allows, as I would call it today, this machine of psychological warfare to manipulate human consciousness in ways that best serve their interests. We’ve seen it before with a variety of topics, like geopolitical issues for example, and I am quite concerned that we will see the same thing with regards to the UFO phenomenon. I am concerned about governments and mainstream media shaping the masses perception about the phenomenon,  but so far it’s been nice to see the topic receive the legitimacy it deserves.

The UFO subject leaves no aspect of humanity untouched and opens up conversations that go into physics, biology, economics, history, technology, metaphysics, parapsychology and more. To be honest, the fact that there are objects in our atmosphere performing maneuvers that no known man made piece of machinery is capable of that may be controlled or manned by beings from other worlds is not even the tip of the iceberg.  That’s how vast, complex and fascinating this subject is. There are many questions and discussions to be had around it.

We (Collective Evolution) have been writing about this topic for more than a decade, if you’re interested in going through our article archive, you can do so here

Crash Recoveries: One topic within the subject matter is the phenomenon of supposed crash retrievals.  Apollo 13 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell once told the world that “Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered.” He is seen making these statements in this documentary. Eric W. Davis, a renowned astrophysicist who worked with the Pentagon UFO program stated that he gave a classified briefing to a Defense Department Agency, as recently as March 2020 about retrievals from “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.” Christopher Mellon, a former Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary for Intelligence from 1997 to 2002 has confirmed that he was  present during this testimony. He himself has been quite outspoken about the phenomenon over the past few years.  Dr. David Clarke, an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University who was also the curator for The National Archives UFO Project from 2008–2013, came across some interesting documents suggesting that the UK was desperate to capture UFO technology. Paul Hellyer, former Canadian defence minister claimed that the protocol when military jets were scrambled to intercept a UFO was to “shoot first and ask questions after.”

The most viewed document from the FBI archives touches upon the idea that the US Government was responsible for three UFO crashes in 1950. Each craft had three bodies inside. You can read more about that specific story here.

Then you have supposed cases like the famous Roswell incident, but there are many multiple dozens of stories like Roswell I’ve come across over the years in my research.

UFO Crash Recoveries: A Classified Corporate Gold Rush: “UFO Crash Recoveries: A Classified Corporate Gold Rush” will be one of multiple themes that renowned UFO researcher/historian Richard Dolan will be covering at an upcoming UFO conference.

I have talked about the acquisition of exotic technology by the military and the black budget world. This time I’m going to go deeper into not just the testing and the attempts to replicate this type of technology but the likely corporate players involved and revolutionary nature of the sciences and technologies involved. What has been developed over the years is a bizarre system of what I often call legal illegality and one of massive profit for certain organizations. – Dolan (source)

If you’re interested about the crash recovery topic, this is probably something you won’t want to miss. It’s called the “UFO Secrecy in a Changing World Conference”, and it takes place on May 20th. You can learn more about it here.

Final Thoughts: Russell Brand recently conducted an interview with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. One point Snowden made was that we have to be careful, because not everything that is labelled a “conspiracy theory” is actually a conspiracy theory. This has been proven to be true for not only mass surveillance, but for several other topics like false flag terrorism and perhaps most recently, UFOs. The point is, our world, and more particularly the mainstream fails to have conversations about “controversial” topics that don’t fit within the frame. That being said, it’s not easy to come to grips with the idea that our world is nothing like what’s been presented to us, but that’s something humanity must go through if we want to move forward as a collective.

We have to be very careful when it comes to things that are deemed to be a conspiracy theory, and remember that the very phrase “conspiracy theorist” was used in 1967 in a classified CIA dispatch providing instructions on how to manipulate and manage public opinion. This appears to be the manner in which the phrase made its way into the public. They coined the phrase and established it to single out and ridicule dissenters of officially established opinions. Keep in mind that a decades long campaign of “ridicule and secrecy” has been applied to the UFO issue (Ex-CIA Director Roscoe Hillenkoetter).

This is something important to think about, especially in the era of COVID.

To those who believe the phenomenon represents nothing but false deception and some sort of grand plan by the elite, I ask you, why would they ridicule a phenomenon for so long and place it into the conspiracy theory bucket if they wanted to convince people of the reality of UFOs? During the period of ridicule and secrecy a number of researchers showed that it was quite obvious something was going on. Eventually, too many people became aware of it to the point where governments have no choice but to address it because it’s so obvious. That’s where we seem to be now.

Again, the phenomenon is deep and has the potential shift human consciousness and change the way we view ourselves, the cosmos, the nature of reality and why we live the way we do on our planet. We still have a ways to go. For example, if UFO technology has the potential to change our world for the better in multiple ways, will it be used for that? Or will it be used by a small group of people to benefit financially and in other ways? It’s not technology or new discoveries that will change our world, it’s the consciousness that lies behind them, and more. Ultimately, it’s the way we treat others.
