In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Donald Trump is holding a second summit with Kim Jong-un, which Trump believes will eventually lead to a denuclearized Korean peninsula.

  • Reflect On:

    Is this meeting one sign among others that we are finally making steps towards peace in the world?

In order to understand the significance of the meeting in Vietnam between Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, it will be helpful to get a general idea about the mainstream characterization of the situation before we try to speculate about what is really going on behind the scenes, or what the potential outcome may be of this historic reversal of tensions within the region.

The basic ‘story’ that the social engineers behind mainstream media have been running with for a number of decades is that ever since the armistice between North and South Korea, North Korea has operated as a ‘rogue’ state. As an insular communist nation shrouded in secrecy, North Korea has long been a failed, impoverished, backwards state run by an unelected family line of dictators who have all been accused of human rights abuses, beginning with Kim Il-sung (1948-1994), then his son Kim Jong-il (1994-2011) and finally succeeded by the latter’s son Kim Jung-un (2011-present).

This is not to say that there isn’t truth in much of this. It more so is a commentary that external powers seem to have wanted things to continue this way all along. Note, for instance, that an attempt to establish a peace treaty a year after the armistice was signed was blocked by the U.S. Secretary of State:

During the 1954 Geneva Conference in Switzerland, Chinese Premier and foreign minister Zhou Enlai suggested that a peace treaty should be implemented on the Korean peninsula. However, the US secretary of state, John Foster Dulles, did not accommodate this attempt to achieve such a treaty. A final peace settlement has never been achieved.

The signed Armistice established the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the de facto new border between the two nations, put into force a cease-fire, and finalized repatriation of prisoners of war. The DMZ runs close to the 38th parallel and has separated North and South Korea since the Korean Armistice Agreement was signed in 1953. South Korea never signed the Armistice Agreement due to President Syngman Rhee’s refusal to accept the division of Korea. (source)

Perhaps, even back then, the division of North and South Korea was seen as something that the power brokers in the U.S. felt they could use to their advantage.

The Stage Is Set

Donald Trump’s approach to North Korea since he became President has been an interesting carrot-and-stick show. He has referred to Kim as ‘rocket man’ in the past, and said this about the size of Kim’s Nuclear Button:

It should be familiar to all of us by now that this is all part of Trump’s deal-making persona. His attacks can be extreme and often laughable, but it’s part of his strategy to cast his serious deal-making in a positive light, where his proposals are seen as win-win. And certainly one cannot argue against the fact that Trump has somehow gotten beyond the slinging of insults to become the only President since the end of the Korean War to sit down with the North Korean leader for a cordial geopolitical discussion.

The background narrative that preceded these talks is simple. Rogue state North Korea has nuclear weapons. They have been continuing to develop long-range missiles with the hope of being able to deliver these missiles to the United States. North Korea’s leader is unpredictable, temperamental, and may attempt to use military force when he feels he has been provoked. So other countries in the region are ‘worried’ and need the protection of the Unites States, which serves to justify a permanent U.S. military presence in South Korea. (Has anyone ever explained to you how U.S. troops on the ground in South Korea actually help to prevent a nuclear attack on South Korea? Me neither.)

As explained in the video below (full video here), expectations for the meeting are not so high, and any small progress will be seen as a win for both countries:

This article in the Atlantic stakes out the mainstream media position on the meeting:

That’s what Trump’s meeting with Kim in Vietnam, on February 27–28, amounts to. At best, the two leaders will achieve a breakthrough on peace and denuclearization that has eluded their predecessors for decades. At worst, the United States will reward North Korea without reducing the danger it poses. Somewhere in the middle would be a repeat of the leaders’ first summit in Singapore last June: a spectacle with little of substance to show for it.

Note that MM is preparing to characterize the summit as ‘a spectacle with little substance,’ in an attempt to show that Trump is just grandstanding. But if it actually involves ‘rewards’ for North Korea (i.e. the removal of U. S. troops from South Korea) it will be characterized as an abject failure on the part of Donald Trump who is not fit to serve the geopolitical interests of the United States and its allies. Whatever guarantees Trump offers that North Korea has agreed to denuclearize will be met with skepticism founded in their mistrust of Kim. So, yet again, MM is poised to criticize Trump no matter what the outcome is.

What’s Going On Backstage

Even in the mainstream, events such as these are being seen as ‘political theatre.’ In the video above, the commentator mentions that ‘both sides only need to see a limited amount of progress to actually have it be seen as a win, right, I mean, they’re playing to the international community, but they’re also playing to their domestic audiences as well.’ And so it is well established that these public meetings are the show, put out there for perception-building, and the real and actual work and progress is hammered out among the power players in a backstage room that we are not yet privy to.

Here’s the difference with what seems to be happening now: Donald Trump and those allied behind him seem to have wrested enough power away from the Deep State that they are taking over as the prime perception-builders in the world of geopolitics. Other players like National Security Advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who some suspect of affiliation with the Deep State, have much more muted voices in the discussion. It is this newfound power vested in Trump that is really what has made these talks possible, and is really what is allowing Kim Jong-un to shed his image as stern and crazy communist bad-boy and begin to be perceived as an intelligent, capable and affable world leader.

The Deep State would never want this kind of summit to happen, just as they wanted continued conflict in Syria, a war with Iran, and whatever other smokescreens they could put up to continue their plans for global rule. In particular, North Korea could be counted on to serve as a scare tactic, a distraction, and one of many justifications for global Western Military Hegemony. Peace in the Korean peninsula would serve a devastating blow to those tactics.

Q Believes This Is The Real Deal

A Q drop from yesterday shows that they are optimistic that these meetings are for a lot more than the leaders gaining some popularity from their international and domestic audiences. There is a sense that signs of peace, not only in the Korean peninsula but other hotspots such as Syria, Afghanistan, and Yemen, could foreshadow big and historic changes in the world that are imminent since the Deep State no longer has both hands on the scepter of power.

Q’s note that this event was ‘planned long ago’ reinforces the idea that the alliance behind Trump has long hoped for the end of unnecessary wars and hostilities that were fundamentally the creation of the Deep State. It will be interesting to see if ‘BIG BIG BIG HAPPENINGS’ indeed take place over the next 21 days.

The Takeaway

The world manifests by virtue of our collective consciousness, so while players on the world stage like Donald Trump seem to be the ones making deals to change the world, we can also look at Trump’s actions as a manifestation of our growing hunger for peace. As we continue our inner work to let go of our own polarized and war-like attitudes and emotions, the world will continue to slowly evolve towards collective harmony and peace.

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

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

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...

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 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?
